Sri Lankan Muslims Condemns 7/7 Bodh Gaya Attack

The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka vehemently condemns the terror attack on Bodh Gaya’s Mahabodhi temple, which is considered the Mecca of Buddhism and is of deep religious significance to the Buddhists of the world, says its President N M  Ameen.

The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka says; “Sri Lankan Muslims are deeply saddened and dismayed at the dastardly attack on the sacred Mahabodhi temple and adjoining areas and see this as a blatant act of terrorism perpetuated by senseless individuals. We are indeed relieved that no major damage has been reported to the sacred shrine. Our prayers are with the injured for a speedy recovery.

“Terrorism in any form should not be tolerated, and attacks on places of worship are a heinous crime and should be unacceptable to any reasonable human being. The Buddhists consider the sacred Mahabodhi temple as the cradle of Buddhism and the Muslims of Sri Lanka urge the Governments of the region as well as world leaders to ensure that the perpetrators of this dastardly crime are brought to immediate justice.”

The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka comprises a network of organizations of the Sri Lankan Muslim civil society and Diaspora.

    The sad state of humanity.. its really disheartening to see this..

    a year a whole village of muslims in Burma were massacred by buddhist monks.. women children old people all were killed.. women & children were raped and massacred in the worst of forms…. it was very wrong!.. now these crimes & violence are committed against the buddhists which is equally very wrong!..
    No form of violence can justify any cause! & violence like these are unacceptable in any form.. be it buddhist, muslim christian or anyone..
    I don’t understand what is wrong with humanity.. its so damn sad..
    First humanity came before religions were revealed.. religions were revealed to guide people to do right & live in peace..
    People are fighting and committing violent crimes against others using the very religions that were revealed to create peace on earth.. sad..
    wish people respected everyone as human beings and respected their beliefs no matter what it is.. & there should be trust & faith in humanity..
    unfortunately people people fear cultures that they dont understand so there is a huge amount of doubt within people and communities that make them shut their mind to broader thinking & understanding.. & the sad part is people & heads who have their own agendas use this doubt to twist peoples mind to fulfill their own thing.. hence birth of communal violence..
    wish each one of us make an effort within ourselves to stop these violence by changing our ways of thinking within ourselves & in our homes & communities.. so our mind will be open to respect, kindness & understanding towards other beings no matter what race or religions..

    if each of our homes can be corrected then it will automatically change the community & world at large.. i know its wishful thinking coz i know its hard to find everyone who acts on the light side of our hearts.. coz everyone has a dark & lighter side in our hearts.. & what we become is what sideof our hearts we chose to focus on..
    Wish more people have faith in humanity… as long as their is faith hope will never be lost..

      IT IS VERY POSSIBLE THAT HINDU EXTREMISTS DID IT AS THE GREATEST THREST TO HINDUISM COMES FROM THE MILLIONS OF ‘LOW CASTE’ DALITS CONVERTING TO BUDDISM.

      It is also possible some Buddist extremists (Burma, SL, Gota, Mahendra, BBS, etc.) did it to distract the minority abuse happening in them countries, to gather some support from Buddist countries and international blind eye.

    This act should be condemned by all right thinking people belonging any religion or even atheists. Buddha Gaya is the holiest place for Buddhists. Places of worship are what the devotees of that particular religion we holds as precious.
    Attacking places of worship appears to be a common. There was an attack on dalada maligawa during our war, this was supposed to be a response for the destruction of kovils in the North. If it is justified by this, the act can go on and on.
    In the recent past Christian churches and the Mosques have been attacked. This is done by so called ” Sinhala Buddhists” I think persons doing this act cannot have the label of Buddhism. It is totally against Buddhism.

    This is the start, BBS & Burmese were expecting this and when this happned inside their homeland then they relize that they are winners of all. As I said, Buddah teaches Demon and Violence. Read the history, Budhism followers were the most dangerous in the world, take HITLER… its a Survival of Fittest….. No Creator, it happnes by time.. time says .. I have to Kill you,, so I killed you… i am sorry.. this is the same word that Hitler said, Carl Marks, Lenin, Bloddy Darwin, and even Anagarika Dharmapala followed… all of them are Gays. againts to norm.

      What you write is unbelievable- Is it fiction. I know that Hitler was a vegetarian but don’t insult Buddhism by calling Hitler a Buddhist. Buddha as far as I know never taught violence.
      Anagarika Dharmapala was a racist. He like the BBS was pouring poison out of his mouth all the time. It was Soma Thero and now the BBS and the Sinhala Ravaya. It is this poisonous fuel that is destroying the beloved country.
      Def Secretary claims not to support BBS, but has he ever taken steps to stop the hate campaign. He is the most powerful man in this country and if he wants to he can always instruct the BBS and the like. He wants this hatred to spread for reasons best known to him.

      Rod Atkins, you have to be either crazy or incredibly ignorant to write the above statements, saying Hitler was a Buddhist (probably because he used the sanskrit symbol the Swastika) and that the Buddhists have been the most dangerous in history. You seriously need to brush up on your world history and learn about the Ottoman Empire, the crusades etc for starters. I have no words, except to ask that you don’t write rubbish but rather try to offer some fact based objective opinions, if you must write on this board.

    It is unfortunate this has happened. Remember, LTTE attacked the Temple of the Tooth and Anuradapura, as they correctly identified the Core Problem as Sinhala Buddhist Racism.

    It is only a very small fraction of extremists who are vocal, but they create all the trouble, and the state aids ans abets in Burma and Sri Lanka. That is the core problem- a Law and Order Problem.

    Even before BBS & Burmese Buddhist Terrorism, the Al Queda and other Islamic Terrorist groups selected Western targets to attack, due to its long history. They also attacked Shia Muslims, Sufi Muslims, Ahamadia Muslims and even Sunni Muslims on skewed Theological grounds.

    The BBS and Burmese Buddhist Terrorists worked their way up, and joined the target list. Based on the Burmese Buddhist Terrorists and BBS Terrorists activities, and the reports like Time, Buddhist Terrorism is no longer an Illusion. It is real. The authorities are not taking any meaningful actions, for Law and Order, and letting the Theravada Buddhist Monks run Amok. Under this anarchy, any actions against the Buddhist Terrorist will be considered illegitimate, by their peer Terrorists.

    This action, reflects the failure of the Burmese and Sri Lanka authorities to keep Law and Order and protect its Citizens.

    So the counter terrorists, seem to have attacked the point of interest to the Buddhist terrorist, Bodhi Gaya. It is unfortunate, but still brings forth the fact that it was as a reprisal for he Burmese Buddhist Atrocities.

    Myths: They cannot sort out their Myths by Reason, Debate and Logic.

    What Buddhist and Islamist need to do is by reason and factual data, prove that one is better off being a Buddhist being subject to Monk Hegemony, as opposed to being a Muslim and being subject to Mullah-Cleric Hegemony.

    Is Nirvana, Nibbana, Rebirth, Sansara, Heaven, Hell, Purgatory Real?

    -Religion is the Opium of the Masses- “Prophet” Karl Marx

    Need Msao Tse Tung’s Cultural Revolution to clean up these Myths.

      Al-Quida, Taliban and similar groups are products of Western political strategies and nothing to with the propagation of Islam. So is the BBS, Sinhala Ravaya, etc. the agents of a political agenda in Sri Lanka.

    What’s the point The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka condemning ‘the terror attack on Bodh Gaya’s Mahabodhi temple’, by Jihadis when the Quran contain at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war (Jihad) with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. What more to say if Bukhari 52:220 wrote as Allah’s Apostle said… ‘I have been made victorious with terror.’

      I Am No Muslim,

      That is where the core Problem Lies, In Myths, unsupported Myths of Religion and Racism. Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism and Christianity.

      Religion is the Opium of the masses- Karl Marx. He was referring to the Bible.

      The biggest threat and challenges to myths is reason, facts and logic.

      Do you believe the Holy Bible, Old and New Testament and Quran literally? Do you take the good parts and discard the bad parts. After all, that is what we do when we eat food.

      Do you believe in Mahawansa and other Texts literally?

      Chapter 2: Verse 190.
      AND FIGHT in God’s cause against those who wage war against you, but do not commit aggression – for verily, God does not love aggressors.

      Chapter 2: Verse 191.

      And slay them where ever you may come upon them, and drive them away from where ever they drove you away – for oppression is even worse than killing. And fight not against them near the Inviolable House of Worship unless they fightagainst you there fitst. but if they fight against you, slay them: such shall be the recompense of those who deny the truth.

      I will say the Sun does NOT go around the Earth, but it is the Earth that goes around Sun. I will cite the data from Copernicus and Galileo’s experiment with the phases of Venus.

      Here is what Joshua said 3,000 years ago. He stopped the sun for a day, as given in the Bible.

      http://biblehub.com/joshua/10-13.htm

      New International Version (©2011)
      So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the nation avenged itself on its enemies, as it is written in the Book of Jashar. The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day.

      Here is some other Myths from the Holy Bible Compiled by Zaith

      Kill People Who Don’t Listen to Priests
      Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the priest who represents the LORD your God must be put to death. Such evil must be purged from Israel. (Deuteronomy 17:12 NLT)

      Kill Witches
      You should not let a sorceress live. (Exodus 22:17 NAB)

      Kill Homosexuals
      “If a man lies with a male as with a women, both of them shall be put to death for their abominable deed; they have forfeited their lives.” (Leviticus 20:13 NAB)

      Kill Fortunetellers
      A man or a woman who acts as a medium or fortuneteller shall be put to death by stoning; they have no one but themselves to blame for their death. (Leviticus 20:27 NAB)

      Death for Hitting Dad
      Whoever strikes his father or mother shall be put to death. (Exodus 21:15 NAB)

      Death for Cursing Parents
      1) If one curses his father or mother, his lamp will go out at the coming of darkness. (Proverbs 20:20 NAB)
      2) All who curse their father or mother must be put to death. They are guilty of a capital offense. (Leviticus 20:9 NLT)

      Death for Adultery
      If a man commits adultery with another man’s wife, both the man and the woman must be put to death. (Leviticus 20:10 NLT)

      Death for Fornication
      A priest’s daughter who loses her honor by committing fornication and thereby dishonors her father also, shall be burned to death. (Leviticus 21:9 NAB)

      Death to Followers of Other Religions
      Whoever sacrifices to any god, except the Lord alone, shall be doomed. (Exodus 22:19 NAB)

      Kill Nonbelievers
      They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and soul; and everyone who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman. (2 Chronicles 15:12-13 NAB)

      Kill False Prophets
      If a man still prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall say to him, “You shall not live, because you have spoken a lie in the name of the Lord.” When he prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall thrust him through. (Zechariah 13:3 NAB)

      Kill the Entire Town if One Person Worships Another God
      Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods. In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully. If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock. Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the street and burn it. Put the entire town to the torch as a burnt offering to the LORD your God. That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt. Keep none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction. Then the LORD will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you. He will have compassion on you and make you a great nation, just as he solemnly promised your ancestors. “The LORD your God will be merciful only if you obey him and keep all the commands I am giving you today, doing what is pleasing to him.” (Deuteronomy 13:13-19 NLT)

      Kill Women Who Are Not Virgins On Their Wedding Night
      But if this charge is true (that she wasn’t a virgin on her wedding night), and evidence of the girls virginity is not found, they shall bring the girl to the entrance of her fathers house and there her townsman shall stone her to death, because she committed a crime against Israel by her unchasteness in her father’s house. Thus shall you purge the evil from your midst. (Deuteronomy 22:20-21 NAB)

      Kill Followers of Other Religions.
      1) If your own full brother, or your son or daughter, or your beloved wife, or you intimate friend, entices you secretly to serve other gods, whom you and your fathers have not known, gods of any other nations, near at hand or far away, from one end of the earth to the other: do not yield to him or listen to him, nor look with pity upon him, to spare or shield him, but kill him. Your hand shall be the first raised to slay him; the rest of the people shall join in with you. You shall stone him to death, because he sought to lead you astray from the Lord, your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that place of slavery. And all Israel, hearing of this, shall fear and never do such evil as this in your midst. (Deuteronomy 13:7-12 NAB)

      2) Suppose a man or woman among you, in one of your towns that the LORD your God is giving you, has done evil in the sight of the LORD your God and has violated the covenant by serving other gods or by worshiping the sun, the moon, or any of the forces of heaven, which I have strictly forbidden. When you hear about it, investigate the matter thoroughly. If it is true that this detestable thing has been done in Israel, then that man or woman must be taken to the gates of the town and stoned to death. (Deuteronomy 17:2-5 NLT)

      Death for Blasphemy
      One day a man who had an Israelite mother and an Egyptian father got into a fight with one of the Israelite men. During the fight, this son of an Israelite woman blasphemed the LORD’s name. So the man was brought to Moses for judgment. His mother’s name was Shelomith. She was the daughter of Dibri of the tribe of Dan. They put the man in custody until the LORD’s will in the matter should become clear. Then the LORD said to Moses, “Take the blasphemer outside the camp, and tell all those who heard him to lay their hands on his head. Then let the entire community stone him to death. Say to the people of Israel: Those who blaspheme God will suffer the consequences of their guilt and be punished. Anyone who blasphemes the LORD’s name must be stoned to death by the whole community of Israel. Any Israelite or foreigner among you who blasphemes the LORD’s name will surely die. (Leviticus 24:10-16 NLT)

      Kill False Prophets
      1) Suppose there are prophets among you, or those who have dreams about the future, and they promise you signs or miracles, and the predicted signs or miracles take place. If the prophets then say, ‘Come, let us worship the gods of foreign nations,’ do not listen to them. The LORD your God is testing you to see if you love him with all your heart and soul. Serve only the LORD your God and fear him alone. Obey his commands, listen to his voice, and cling to him. The false prophets or dreamers who try to lead you astray must be put to death, for they encourage rebellion against the LORD your God, who brought you out of slavery in the land of Egypt. Since they try to keep you from following the LORD your God, you must execute them to remove the evil from among you. (Deuteronomy 13:1-5 NLT)

      2) But any prophet who claims to give a message from another god or who falsely claims to speak for me must die.’ You may wonder, ‘How will we know whether the prophecy is from the LORD or not?’ If the prophet predicts something in the LORD’s name and it does not happen, the LORD did not give the message. That prophet has spoken on his own and need not be feared. (Deuteronomy 18:20-22 NLT)

      Infidels and Gays Should Die
      So God let them go ahead and do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies. Instead of believing what they knew was the truth about God, they deliberately chose to believe lies. So they worshiped the things God made but not the Creator himself, who is to be praised forever. Amen. That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. And the men, instead of having normal sexual relationships with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men and, as a result, suffered within themselves the penalty they so richly deserved. When they refused to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their evil minds and let them do things that should never be done. Their lives became full of every kind of wickedness, sin, greed, hate, envy, murder, fighting, deception, malicious behavior, and gossip. They are backstabbers, haters of God, insolent, proud, and boastful. They are forever inventing new ways of sinning and are disobedient to their parents. They refuse to understand, break their promises, and are heartless and unforgiving. They are fully aware of God’s death penalty for those who do these things, yet they go right ahead and do them anyway. And, worse yet, they encourage others to do them, too. (Romans 1:24-32 NLT)

      Kill Anyone who Approaches the Tabernacle
      For the LORD had said to Moses, ‘Exempt the tribe of Levi from the census; do not include them when you count the rest of the Israelites. You must put the Levites in charge of the Tabernacle of the Covenant, along with its furnishings and equipment. They must carry the Tabernacle and its equipment as you travel, and they must care for it and camp around it. Whenever the Tabernacle is moved, the Levites will take it down and set it up again. Anyone else who goes too near the Tabernacle will be executed.’ (Numbers 1:48-51 NLT)

      Kill People for Working on the Sabbath
      The LORD then gave these further instructions to Moses: ‘Tell the people of Israel to keep my Sabbath day, for the Sabbath is a sign of the covenant between me and you forever. It helps you to remember that I am the LORD, who makes you holy. Yes, keep the Sabbath day, for it is holy. Anyone who desecrates it must die; anyone who works on that day will be cut off from the community. Work six days only, but the seventh day must be a day of total rest. I repeat: Because the LORD considers it a holy day, anyone who works on the Sabbath must be put to death.’ (Exodus 31:12-15 NLT)

        Al Amarasiri,
        How can a pigmi like you bust myth when you have mixed up materialism as a class struggle and labour as the economic system and the kingship as a dictatorship and believe in a classless society called communism.

        You should know that Marx, Engels and their ism is dead and gone from this world for good. Yet you call yourself a LSSPer. You should know that LSSP and their lot is now being reduced to fit in to a threewheelar in this country. So is the creator God, Adam and all that Bible myth in most of the Western world. But you lot are neither here nor there; you can only bray in rage from wherever you are for you have neither followers nor backers now.

        In the late 20th century the collapse of the Soviet Union and its Eastern bloc allies seemed to mark the end of Soviet Marxism as a practical political or economic model. And China has prudently adopted many elements of a free-market economy in what it called a development rather than a repudiation of Marxist theory.

        The Milindapañha is nothing of the sort. It is the eighteenth book of the Khuddaka Nikaya has a compilation of 262 questions posed by King Milinda to a revered senior monk named Nagasena. This Milinda has been identified with considerable confidence by scholars such as the Greek king Menander of Bactria. It is the product of the encounter of two great civilizations — Hellenistic Greece and Buddhist India. Al Amarasiri, Google and read it, if you want to rid the shackles of Marxism.

          “You should know that Marx, Engels and their ism is dead and gone from this world for good. “

          1. Not exactly true. Lives in Scandinavia along with Lutheran beliefs. However, Buddha, Prophet, Moses, Jesus the Savior, Prophet Mohamed, and many others are gone. Where? Their goal was an Egalitarian Society with revelation and afterlife thrown in.

          2. Did they end up in Nirvana, Nibbana, Rebirth, Hell, Heaven, Purgatory or Limbo, is not known, and not proven – only belief.

          3.You are brainwashed by the Monk Mahanama Buddhism Myths. You cannot prove them. It does not matter if these myths are believed and followed by 10 people or 5 Billion people. Still Myths.

          Just like the Aristotelian Geocentric Model. The Sun does NOT go around the Earth.

          Egalitarianism does not mean communism. It has nothing to do with the Religious Myths and afterlife. However, religion, does help a person die, as it trains the person to believe in the taught Myths.

          According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, the term has two distinct definitions in modern English.[5] It is defined either as a political doctrine that all people should be treated as equals and have the same political, economic, social, and civil rights[6] or as a social philosophy advocating the removal of economic inequalities among people or the decentralisation of power. Some sources define egalitarianism as the point of view that equality reflects the natural state of humanity.[7][8][9]

            Finland ranks third in the World Economic Forum’s global survey of gender equality. Finland figures strongly, particularly with regard to the education of women and the number of ministerial posts they hold. A total of 135 countries were surveyed.

            Nordic countries as usual placed at the top of the standings. Ahead of Finland were Iceland and Norway with Sweden following in fourth place.

            According to the survey 85 percent of the world’s countries have succeeded in narrowing the gender equality gap over the past six years. The increase in equality has been most evident in the fields of health and education and, for example, the health differences between men and women have continued to narrow in ever more countries. In education as well, in many countries women can access education as easily, or almost as easily as men.

            In Finland it is particularly in the field of education that gender equality is evident. Within economic life and politics the role of women has not generally improved but Finland did earn a good ranking for its number of female ministers.

            The survey report states that empowering and educating girls and women and leveraging their talent and leadership fully in the global economy, politics and society are fundamental elements of the new models required to succeed in today’s challenging landscape.

        TRUE BUDDHISM IS A GRATE PHILOSOPHY, NOT A RELIGION.

        So your argument is out of context.

        and in BUDDHISM ,
        KILLINGS ARE NEVER EVER MENTIONED or approved,
        so again you are at
        “you take the good parts and discard the bad parts”.
        That is what Lord Buddha teached,
        and never ask any body to worship him.

        so you are mistaken and misguided from all angles.

        MISGUIDED,DISGUSTED L S S P er.

        As per my knowledge, MOST OF THE L S S P ers are Liers, Cheaters.

        so nobody may belive in LSSP ers OR COMMUNISTS NOW.

        SO YOU ARE EVIL, NOT TRUTH, NOT REAL AND
        SUFFERING FROM IMPERIORITY COMPLEX AND MAHANAAMAPOHOBIA.

      You need to read the quran in context. The verses that are often quoted by the likes of you refer to specific situations of combat/struggle DURING the period of revelation.

      Eg. in the context of the final stages of battle between the LTTE and GoSL. If the outnumbered LTTE cardres under siege were issued an order to kill the sinhalese or to fight bravely for they will be rewarded in the next life – in that context, it would not be considered immoral

      The Quran was essentially god’s divine guidance to the prophet during his struggle to establish Islam. I am not surprised that you non-muslims get shocked when reading these verses as it only makes sense from the point of view of a person who BELIEVES that this was divine revelation and directive given directly from God DURING and FOR those times. Today we muslims take lessons from these verses by understanding the overall context.

      I have never heard of the Bukhari hadith you have quoted and will not comment

        ahmad,
        Never mind what I wrote as Bukhari wrote is hadith or not, call it what you like but read it and deny it if you can. The meaning stands.

        The way one meet problems at specific situations revel one’s true character. History shows that the so-called struggle to establish Islam are nothing but made-up situations by Muhammad. Do we have to say more if the ‘Dictionary of Islam’ defines ‘Jihad’ as “A religious war with those who are unbelievers in the mission of Muhammad.”

        There are many ‘divine revelation’ that came pouring down for Muhammad to get out from his troubles or fix or achieve his preposterous desires such as marrying the wife of his adopted son. Otherwise why had he castigate some of God poured verses to Satan afterwards. Surly, verses by Satan couldn’t have been mistaken to that of the almighty Allah.

          Prove it. A real historian (unlike you) by the name of Michael H. Hart ranked Prophet Muhammed no. 1 in his 1978 book The 100: A Ranking of the Most Influential Persons in History.

          For starters watch the 1976 Hollywood movie ‘The Message’ staring Anthony Quinn.

          “‘Dictionary of Islam’ defines ‘Jihad’ as “A religious war with those who are unbelievers in the mission of Muhammad.”

          Which dictionary of Islam (not the Oxford Dictionary I hope)? There are many forms of Jihad, and any ‘religous war’ has its conditions if not met is forbiden.

          The Bukhari Hadith goes:

          “Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.” Abu Huraira added: Allah’s Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet did not benefit by them).”

          We can squable over what “terror” means here, but you are not going to make any point.

      It seems you are the one (a nut) appointed by the Indian Govt. to investigate the attack and you have already found the culprits by referring to Muslims, Islam and Jihadists. What a comedy from a ‘No Nothing’?

    Great majority of Buddhist are peaceful and friendly people. Their religon is the most peaceful of all religons, eschewing violence under all conditions.

    If this act was committed by fellow Muslims we call on them to desist from such wanton acts of terrorism on innocent people. The problems in Myanmar should be solved through dialogue and international mediation.

      Agree with you. This is not the time to argue about religion and who is right. Religion was meant to enlighten us on how to live. When we squabble we show that we have not learnt anything.

    It is sad to see the comments digressing. Let us keep it to the issue. Muslim Council has condemned this dastardly act. That is the point to be discussed.One should be thankful to the Muslim Council for this forthright declaration.Let us not jump the gun just because the Bihar Police has some suspicions.There may be politics if they went beyond that at this stage to name a particular group. I am no Muslim. appreciate the declaration of the Muslim Council. I want to thank them. An attack on any religious place, especially the most sacred place to the whole world, deserves to be condemned.

    I condemn this act in strong words. Religion and places of worship should be respected. Religion is a personal matter. It is mixed with emotions and feelings. Every human deserve to be respected with dignity and integrity.
    Narrow minded politician for their petty benefit playing with peoples emotions and are the main problem for disharmony and violent in todays world.
    I wish world will be a peaceful place for our children to live. As we are approaching Holy month of Ramadhan bless with peace and prosperity in every mind and heart, what ever faith he belongs to.

      burqa, naqib
      France, Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands has banned Niqab or Burqa or hijabthat covers the face. Canada banned face covering during citizenship ceremonies in December 2011. It is banned in Syrian schools and universities. Barcelona, Spain banned burqas and niqabs from government buildings, issuing a statement that asserted that the garments “hinder personal indentification.” In the Muslim nations of Turkey and Tunisia, it has been banned for decades.

    “Imagine there’s no heaven
    It’s easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    Imagine all the people living for today

    Imagine there’s no countries
    It isn’t hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion too
    Imagine all the people living life in peace

    You, may say I’m a dreamer,
    but I’m not the only one
    I hope some day you’ll join us
    And the world will be as one

    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people sharing all the world

    You, may say I’m a dreamer,
    but I’m not the only one
    I hope some day you’ll join us
    And the world will live as one”

    – John Lennon

    A responsible and dignified move by Mr Ameen and colleagues. I wonder
    if Mr Ameen is my friend the senior lawyer who lived off Greenpath in
    Kollupitiya.
