Sri Lankan Muslims At The Cross Roads – VIII

By Izeth Hussain

The present article and my earlier ones of July 5 and 12 are meant to constitute a unity, focusing on the questions of what really the Aluthgama/Beruwela outrages signify, and what action can be taken by the Muslims to safeguard their lives and their legitimate interests. I concluded my last article by arguing that the Muslims should, in order to safeguard their legitimate interests, turn to the Government, even though it is carrying out an anti-Muslim project, and also have recourse to the civil society. But neither, I am afraid, will prove to be really effective instruments for safeguarding legitimate Muslim interests. For that they have to turn to what is potentially the most effective instrument available: the international community. I must justify that position before proceeding further because it might be taken by some as betraying an anti-national bias.

It has now become absolutely clear, unlike in earlier weeks – as a result of investigative work courageously undertaken by Latheef Farook and others – that what took place at Aluthgama/Beruwela should be seen as a Government-backed anti-Muslim pogrom. It should really be seen as signaling a new phase in the Government’s anti-Muslim project: a project to reduce them Muslims to the status of second-class citizens who are not entitled to the protection of the State, and to reduce their economic position to levels lower than those of the Sinhalese. As to what really happened at Aluthgama/Beruwela, the most eloquent testimony is that of that noble UNP Parliamentarian Thewarapperuma to whom the Muslims acknowledge a debt of gratitude for having  risked his life in trying to rescue  the Muslims of the area. According to him the STF was there in full force but merely watched while the murderous arsonists went on the rampage. The Government cannot possibly absolve itself of responsibility for that outrage. It was indisputably a Government-backed pogrom that took place.

The inadequacy of the Government as a resource for safeguarding legitimate Muslim interests becomes very apparent when we ask what can be done to prevent another July ’83.It was quite clear to practically everyone that the racist bull-thugs at Aluthgama were baying for blood, and that very probably they view what ensued as merely a prelude to a grand orgasmic climax of blood-letting that is to take place next year in commemoration of the anti-Muslim riots of 1915. At present what looks like a campaign to provoke a further bout of anti-Muslim violence seems to be going on. Scarifying stories are put out about Muslims insulting and provoking the Buddhist clergy, who are bearing it all with infinite patience because there is no one to whom they can turn in this predominantly Buddhist land that is really under non-Buddhist domination. The further complaint is that the media are blacking out all news about the Muslim provocations. Is there any hope that the Government will make proper investigations and put a stop to such loonily dangerous racist idiocies? None whatever. Is there any hope that the Government will responsibly investigate what really ignited the recent riots? None whatever.

It must seem anomalous that I am advocating a Muslim turning to the Government to safeguard their legitimate interests, while I am saying at the same time that the Government is carrying an anti-Muslim project. Part of the reason for this is that the Government is an amorphous body with many fissures, not a smooth monolith. Its hard core is certainly neo-Fascist, racist, anti-Muslim, but the Government also includes members of the old SLFP and of left-wing parties who could be sympathetic to the Muslims. The Opposition UNP is also basically racist and anti-Muslim, but it too includes enlightened politicians who we can presume will be disposed to give some measure of fair play to the Muslims – to which the Government is averse as shown quite clearly by its Deputy Permanent Representative in Geneva having the damned impertinence to blame the Muslims for setting off the Aluthgama/Beruwela outrages. However the essential difference – the difference that the Muslims can’t afford to ignore – is that the Government can deliver, the UNP can’t. That applies to the civil society too which – though it has shown an impressive dynamism in recent times – cannot as yet play the decisive role that could be expected of the civil societies of Britain or India. Under these circumstances the Muslims cannot be blamed if they turn to the international community to safeguard not just their legitimate interests but their very lives, as a July ’83 could well be on the way.

What the Muslims should now do is to undertake a publicity counter-thrust dealing with all the charges leveled against them. It can be shown, without much difficulty, that the issues bedeviling Sinhalese-Muslim relations, sometimes for decades, are really not much more than irritants, nothing that could conceivably justify a hate campaign and violence backed by the Government. It can be shown also that some of the issues that have continued to bedevil relations are not the consequence of wrong-doing by the Muslims or the Sinhalese, but of the failure, or refusal, on the part of successive Governments to take corrective or regulatory action. Such a publicity counter-thrust could perhaps do more than anything else to restore the traditional amity and co-operation that have characterized Sinhalese-Muslim relations.

The counter-thrust should at the outset emphasize certain facts of fundamental importance. The Muslims and their political representatives have been on the whole, until very recently, abjectly submissive towards the Sinhalese. They have sided with the Sinhalese against the Tamils in every bit of ethnolunacy advanced by the Sinhalese leaders. They made their contribution to the war effort to the extent of incurring a mass genocidal expulsion from the North. They have never asked for a separate state, and even their case for an autonomous Muslim unit is the consequence of the Tamil case for devolution. The wider Islamic world has been of immense benefit to Sri Lanka, in ways that I need not specify here. The point to be highlighted is that the creation of a major Muslim ethnic problem in Sri Lanka argues an advanced, a dangerously advanced, degree of ethnolunacy among the anti-Muslim racists and their Government backers.

The publicity counter-thrust would not, in my view, require detailed abstruse studies. Sometimes the issues are really non-issues, while most of them can be disposed of without much difficulty. As an example of a non-issue, I will take the charge that Muslim countries don’t allow the building of churches and temples and the practice of any religion other than Islam. In a recent letter to the Island, a Sinhalese writer listed several Western countries where there are Buddhist temples, but none he wrote are to be found in Saudi Arabia and other Muslim countries, while in Sri Lanka Buddhists allow mosques to proliferate all over the place, and so on. He challenged me to express my views about that. I did some checking and found that the position is as follows. The Saudis regard their country as having a unique relation to Islam for obvious historical reasons, and therefore don’t allow the building of non-Muslim religious edifices there, but the practice of other religions is allowed. Churches and Hindu temples are to be found in the UAE, Bahrain, and elsewhere. As I could not get information on the practices prevalent in the 57 predominantly Muslim countries of the world, I asked the writer what are the countries where Buddhists have sought permission to build temples and been refused. There has been no answer.

I would also regard as a non-issue something that the Sinhalese racists, and the Government itself, regard as a serious national problem, the problem of Muslim extremism. The truth about this was put succinctly and exactly some weeks ago by a politician of high integrity, Mangala Samaraweera: There is no Muslim extremism here. I dealt with this supposed serious national problem in a recent article, so that instead of going into details here I will confine myself to the essential facts. There is indeed the problem of the religious extremism of the Wahabis and the Salafis, which have led to a few, very few, clashes with the mainstream orthodox Muslims. That should be of no concern at all to non-Muslims, and constitutes no problem for them, except to the Government as a very occasional law and order problem. The madrasas have not been teaching any form of “political Islam” and consequently there are no Jehadi groups, none whatever in Sri Lanka. I understand that about three SL Muslims have been recruited by foreign terrorist groups, but such recruitment can be easily contained by our secret service with the help if necessary of RAW, the CIA, and Mossad. Supposed Muslim extremism here is a concoction of the Sinhalese racists, as part of their strategy to push the Muslims down and keep the Muslims down.

      Izeth Hussain writes volumes and becomes passionate about his community. No harm done. This is natural and is to be welcome.
      The Muslim community deserves and is entitled to the protection of the Sri Lankan Govt and all its armed forces.

      But this is the same man who recommended to the Govt to starve
      Tamils in the North-East as a means to break the backbone of the
      Tamil insurrection against Sinhala Govt excesses. Does Izeth H
      have two different standards – one for Tamils and another for Muslims.

      “That should be of no concern at all to non-Muslims, and constitutes no problem for them…” BBS won’t buy that. They say they are concerned for the Sinhala people against a creeping global danger.

      “The madrasas have not been teaching any form of “political Islam” and consequently there are no Jehadi groups, none whatever in Sri Lanka”
      Who is Hussain trying to fool?

      “I understand that about three SL Muslims have been recruited by foreign terrorist groups..” Hussain’s ignorance will not go far with the intelligence agencies of other countries following events here.

      “But such recruitment can be easily contained by our secret service with the help if necessary of RAW, the CIA, and Mossad…” Has old Hussain gone bonkers? He overestimates the Muslim strength here. Our own Police CID is enough to confirm how many Muslim suspects are in the pay of foreign subversive interests.

      “Supposed Muslim extremism here is a concoction of the Sinhalese racists, as part of their strategy to push the Muslims down and keep the Muslims down” I notice already other commentators have ridiculed
      Hussain’s nonsense to this hollow comment.

        Its the triple talk from the same stone- christian, islam, jewish.

        first the french backed the islamist to fight the emperor of roman then german hitler now the jewish american.

        Its all hidden hands and power.

        Flight 370 went missing with 70 chinese engg etc possibly hijacked to Diego for undetectable radar chip- americans hid all info along with malaysia.

        Today malaysia plane was blown up over ukrain with mainly whites especially dutch- white on white- mainland chinese are laughing at the malays.

        Life goes on- muslims are still the uncivilized as bush put it but with a clause bin lardens family is civilized because his pop made his first million through them.

    Thanks Izeth, that was well within what we have come to expect from you. However, what we really need to understand from you is the real dynamics of who or what is fueling this racism, and how it can controlled. Is it due to an inferiority complex feeling? Is it an unspoken jealousy of witnessing others succeed against a perception of one’s own failure? Having little or no trust in existing systems to rise out of the poverty levels? Or are these cunning machinations to undermine peaceful co-existence designed to serve political agendas? There must surely be a motivating factor to surf ride this popularity wave. Until and unless those reasons are recognized and the issues addressed, we are going to see more violence against both Muslim and Christian communities. What is it that will make them (BBS/SR/JHU combine) to renounce violence and level off on its radicalized hate campaign against minorities. Do we really need a credible monitoring committee or even peace ambassadors who could be trusted by all parties, to bring about a full closure to all of the past incidents and to build up to a fresh start? What would be the logistics involved in establishing such a committee? Will religious leaders only be enough when violations and trading accusations are being made? How should future violations be handled given the police stays neutral? etc.

    “Supposed Muslim extremism here is a concoction of the Sinhalese racists, as part of their strategy to push the Muslims down and keep the Muslims down.”

    Thank you for a factual update on the current situation.

    1. Yes, there is the Old Guard Sinhala Buddhist Politician who are not so racist as the Newer one.

    2. Sinhala Buddhist Politician and Monks , and the state are liars. They will lie, lie and lie.

    3. Expose, expose and Expose.

    Muslims need to form Neighborhood watch groups, in and gather information about those who are the terrorists and their supporters. Looks like they are a specific group of outsiders who are engaged by BBS and the State to carry out these criminal activities with state protection.

    Yes, the police and STF only protects the rioters.

    Have a mechanism for identifying the rioters, and confronting them.

    The Govt will keep on lying. Identify the culprits, by name, where they live and make it public notice as to who they are.

    Put the information on web site sand elsewhere for everybody to see.

    Muslims need to seriously analyse the current relationships with Govt and majority community and see if these can be normalised. Govt reluctance to take action against hate mongers like Gandasara indicates tacit approval for its activities. These can be temporarily neutralised by international pressure but in the long term it is up to the communities to come together.

    The rogue monk Gandasara is thriving on media publicity but opposition and criticism against him by the majority community is also rising. The sooner such facist elements are condemned and neutralised society can move forward the country can develop. The Govt too will be forced to reconsider its strategy of attacking minorities to gain popular support.

      Lets all hope a deterrent is opened in the shores of Lanka for SARC.

      Rajiv Shah, head of USAID appointed by President Barack Obama should ideally open a SARC rendition center for jihadist in the south of Lanka- security council approval is never a problem for that.

    some muslim countries do not allow the building of temples and churches. there divisions among mulims wahabi etc. these matters do not justify the attacks on aluthgama muslims. if you go like this there is no end. aluthgama attack was a law and order problem. the reasons are different.economic reasons could be discussed. i would say it is economic jeolousy and show of majority strength both political and army/police. it is a matter of subjugating the minorities.
    nothing else.generally muslims were looking after themselves without diturbing the polity. went hand in hand with the sinhala state . it was a matter of stark survival and nothing wrong in that. this is what successfully implemented by thondaman. but for both this strategy did not work. thonda had to look after his poor plantation community and muslim leadership had to look after their people and business interests.nothing wrong in the face face of a strong and vibrant sinhala state.

    At the moment we only see accusations and threats thrown at each other by BBS and the Muslim leaders.

    Izzeth Hussein is an alarmist, predicting that all these incidents are a mere prelude to 2015 when the 1915 Sinhala/Muslim confrontation will be commemorated in a bloodbath of epic proportions.

    By the way, the issue has already been internationalised by Rauf Hakeem etc, as evinced by the recent meeting of the President with Muslim ambassadors in Sri Lanka. Similarly USA and other major countries, including the UN have expressed concerns.

    The threat of sanctions is already in the air.

    While internationalising the issue more intensely (as suggested by Izzeth Hussein) may be regarded as the last straw, it may perhaps be a better idea for the Muslims to urgently initiate a dialogue with BBS and similar protagonists, attended by other Civil Society leaders under the supervision of the Government(IH’s chief suspect).

    If the opposing participants can be persuaded please do include Mangala Samaraweera, Thewaraperuma and Amila Thera to support the Muslim cause.

    If all issues, (both actual and perceived) can be discussed frankly and honestly with a view to concluding a Peace Treaty that would be ideal.

    In my view, any delay in the proposed dialogue will only exacerbate issues.

    Furthermore, international threats and scare-mongering per Izzeth Hussein may only cause further aggravation.

    Oh no! Islamic countries which do give rights for temples and churches to come up, do so within a carefully controlled limited tolerance.

    Most Islamic countries are undemocratic, and even those which are democratic, give prominence to the Islamic faith above all others. Only a certain percentage of church/temple building is allowed, which is usually far below the population of the minority religions.

    However, as Sri Lanka is purely democratic, Sri Lanka should allow the building numbers according to population ratios +/- 1 to 2% . This has to be done by bureaucratic means(?), and each community in Sri Lanka has to stick to the numbers- even the Buddhist one.

      The problem with that logic is Buddhist pansals are empty. Only dansal attract a crowd. Just like in any sighala event only a free packet of lunch cam move a singhala from his ass.

      Church has some crowd so as the kovils, muslims are flocking to their mosques day in and day out.

    My dear friends, Look building a church or temple in KSA or Bahrain or Qatar is not possible, reason is the 100 percent citizens there are Muslims. If there are minority Buddhists and Christians in those countries as citizens, sure they government has to allow. So just pointing at those countries is of no use. Look at Pakistan, a Muslim country, but they have a Christian minorty as citizens, hence there are churches in Pakistan. Look at Malaysia, Indonesia similar to Pakistan. So just use your brain and think a little before ptting forward these unnecessary myths.

    The Muslims have had a strong presence in the SLFP and the UNP, while also having independent representation in parliament. Has this strategy helped in their hour of need? Muslims also took a nationalistic stance during the long war years and were made to pay a heavy price by the LTTE. This did not help them either.

    All minorities in this country have to ponder the Muslim dilemma.

    Should all the minorities find common cause on the political front, while yet working with the SLFP and UNP from within?

    Should the Muslims and other minorities reach out the majority Sinhala-Buddhist majority to isolate and expose the extremist fringe!

    Should the minorities be less vulnerable to the divide & rule , lure & purchase and collect dirt & black mail policies practiced with great skill by the MR government.

    The international factor advocated by Izeth Hussain is a double edged sword, because international interest is never altruistic and is always dictated by the self interest of various countries. They will inevitably fish in trouble waters and leave the pond irredeemably poisoned.

    It is a very worrying situation and answers are elusive.

      Dr Rajasingham:

      Reaching out to the majority Sinhala-Buddhist majority is a stale and stinking tale, often used for justification by the likes of DJ. Nothing good has come out of such an action since independence and continuing to count on such a notion or advice is not only pathetic but also foolhardy. May be why Prabhakaran did it (against the Sinhalese) should be viewed against the majority Mahawamsa mindset, as it is being played out even now in front of our eyes. Then the bogey were the Tamils (read then as LTTE), now it is the turn of the Muslims. How Prabhakaran did it may be questionable to some but the “why” cannot be disputed. Against the backdrop of such overwhelming evidence and history, to draw a straight line on adherence even faintly to your advice or notion could, perhaps, take another thousand years or, worse still, never take place at all. May be this idea of yours could be stacked into the pigeon hole named “day-dreaming”.

      Izeth is quite wrong in pointing his hands towards an international dimension to this problem and your detest seems at best comical. When on earth has any minority problem sought an international dimension. A recalcitrant regime has been doing a perfect job of attracting international attention on its own for its dastardly actions. Today, this regime is crying foul for the international community to breathe heavily on its actions against minorities. While the UNHRC session was underway, the Muslims were being persecuted. Don’t worry, there are enough lunatics within the regime to bring it down. All we have to do now is to lay back and watch the fun.

          Dr Rajasingham:

          I have already answered your questions, if you really care to read them. I have stated my reasons on why your suggestions/questions are non-starters.

          It looks like while you were sleeping, and quite different from your suggestion of appeasing the majority Sinhala population, the UNHRC investigation has begun. All this joke of “appeasement” and “common cause” charades were going nowhere and the regime has been dishing out one commission after another to simply hoodwink the everyone. I am not saying that the investigation or its conclusion may what we may expect or otherwise but at least we can live the belief that that there would be some credibility in its conduct. Your request to consider the options towards consensus with a population that has been continuously conditioned to think and belief the Tamils (and by extension, minorities) are their arch enemies is very hollow indeed.

          Indeed, like many, I, too believed that a new era has dawned after the war ended but all the sinister events and actions that followed erased away completely that belief and saw the true nature of what the regime and the majority of the sinhala people are. And this is my take. One day, in the not too distant future, the world would see the reality. It is not so much of two separate nations because the Tamils want it that way. There has been so much of bad blood between the two and only plausible solution is to go separate ways. Since independence the Sinhala majority never allowed the Tamils to live in peace and it is abundantly clear that the Sinhalese sole intention is to beat the Tamils into submission and become beggars for their livelihood. Everything they have been doing, right from the Sinhala Act and the republican constitution and the triumph parade they conduct every year is not lost on the Tamils. And the latest hoodwinking exercise in pressuring the TNA to join the PSC has not worked because such an exercise should be consigned to where it rightly belongs – the rubbish bin.

          So, stop this DJ’s sort of charade. Let the UNHRC investigation take the lead – the rest will fall in place.

            Jansee,

            I am disgusted with the manner in which this government let the post-war golden opportunity slip. Further, I have no objections to the UNHCR process continuing. However, this should be complementary to the evolution of political processes within the country to curb the excesses and downright caddishness of this government. The political process that evolves cannot achieve anything without being inclusive of the Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims, as peoples of this country. No lasting solution can be imposed . Solutions have to be evolved with the support and pressures of the international factor. The Indo-Sri Lanka agreement is an example of international pressure producing half-baked and unworkable solutions, while exacerbating the Sinhala-Tamil political divide.

            I am yet convinced that we the Tamils and Muslims have to reach out to win the hearts and minds of the decent and civilised Sinhala people-who are the majority. The extremist fringe may be very noisy , often heard and in the lead . However, they are not the Sinhala people, whom I have come to know over the decades.

            The object of my original comment was to instigate some thinking on how we can achieve minority unity while also winning over the majority Sinhalese to the cause of the minorities. This would also require the minorities giving equal importance to national concerns and the problems that are of concern to the Sinhala people.

            Dr.RN

    I agree with this writer. For the last two years, Muslims try their best to find some solutions for the problems created by BBS. They have had many meetings with high ranking monks and politicians and yet, anti Muslim violances continued and still continue. It is very much clear that this govnment is behind this all. This legitimate government using all government apparatus is behind all these illegitimate and illegal acts of violances. This government should be taken into Geveva for this anti Muslim injustice. All those who willingly incite violances including MPs should be made known to international community. There is no way out for this crisis unless we internationalise this problem and take this issue with international community: UN, Eurpeoan commission and all other intertnstional bodies should be informed about this injustice. Aftet all these injustice done to Muslims shameless BBS tried to put blame on Muslims. This coward and barbaric BBS is like animals and they know only languages of animals and look at they they behave and speak. Animals are far better than these thugs.
    Let the world knows that this injustice is being done to Muslims. Let this barbaric BBS who came to Lanka from Bay of Bengal learn some lessons.

    Sorry to say that the article is absolute trash.

    Izeth Hussain, here are few facts for your knowledge…

    > The Muslim riots of 1915 was started/initiated by the immigrant Muslims with the help of British colonialists rulers.

    > Muslimisation of Sri Lanka is already on its way.
    -When Gatafi visited 1976, he wanted to see a Muslim SL.
    -Ashroff wanted a separate state called “Nasiristan”.
    -Coastal cities, central province, and eastern province(completely) are already under Muslim control.

    > In eastern province, there are signs written in Arabic.

    > Unofficial Sharia courts operate in eastern province and there are no go zone for members of police and army.

    > Madrassas are mushrooming all over the country and radicalising the Muslim youngsters.

    > Over the past 30 years Muslims dropped their Asiatic way of life and adapted Arabic extremists’ way of life.

    > The archaeological sites have been bulldozed to the ground in Eastern Province, , and archaeological sites in other places have been invaded and made settlements there too.

    > Recently Wilpattu national park have been colonised with the help of corrupted always lying minister.

    > Some well-Known muslim businesses have employed non-Sri Lankan citizens.

    > Some Muslim JPs make false birth certificates and IDs for non-Sri Lankans.

    Izeth is like a contemporary historian with events relating to the Sri Lankan Muslims unfolding before his eyes. In a country ridden with racism the question is whether the Muslims are a race or a an ethnic group embracing a particular religion/faith. In India there are ethnic Tamils who are Muslims just as much as they are Hindus and /or Christians: very good examples are Mohamed Khalam, AR Rahuman etc. Bensen
