Thawheed Jamaat’s Call To Protect SL Muslims Irks Security Establishment

The call made by Thawheed Jamaat – the Muslim organisation that Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) has accused of spreading Islamic extremism in the country, for Muslim countries to ensure the protection of Sri Lankan Muslims has irked the security establishments in Sri Lanka.

Their calls are made just over a month since the anti-Muslim violence that erupted in Aluthgama and Beruwala as well as several other parts of the country that left three Muslims and one Tamil dead, several more injured and resulting in wide-spread property damage.

Local media reports indicate that the call has been very critically judged by those in the security establishments as a ‘direct call for foreign intervention’.

In a comment to Al-Jazeera, Thawheed Jamaat representatives had stated they no longer wish to rely on the Sri Lankan government to ensure the security of the local Muslim community.

Hardline Buddhist organisations in Sri Lanka have described the Thawheed Jamaat as a group that promotes Islamic fundamentalism as well as promoting derogatory statements on Buddha and Buddhism.

However, they have rejected such allegations and have assured they do not support any kind of terrorism.

    The government must arrest gnansara and bbs for creating this situation. Muslims are feeling un-safe in Sri Lanka. And this could lead to counter measures by muslims, which can lead to another war with all Sri Lanken citizens loosing. Even county being devided on religious lines. We are not dealing with like the tamils one ethnicity but world Muslims, who with ISIS declaring a chaliphet will also come to help there fellow muslims. This will complicate relationships which muslims and buddhis have for centuries.
    One reason why muslims be it moguls or arabs didn’t invade Sri Lanka was that the Sri Lanken kings were allowing muslims to practice there religion peacefully and no muslim property were harmed. The King of Sri lanka in the year 800ad contacted Hajjaj bin usoof the governor of Iraq to send a ship for a muslim lady, whos husband had died in present day Colombo. When the Lady was taken to Iraq in the ship, Hindu pirots attacked the ship and captured this lady.
    Hjjaj bin usoof sent his nephew Usama to deal with the pirots and rescue the lady, which he successfully did. and later on went to invade india. This respect and relationship with the muslims have lasted 1200years, no need to go for another civil war because of a mad monk.

      Well said. Terrorists are not born. They are created. Gnana is in the process of making Muslim terrorists in Sri Lanka. If he is allowed by the government to continue his anti-Muslim activities, defence establishment can prepare from now on to face another guerrilla war soon. Such a situation will be an immense loss to innocent civilians, but who cares?. Thre are many players in the game, foreign arm-sellers, local commission takers, foreign Buddhist and Islamic terrorists etc to take advantage of the development. And sadly, the leaders are not in the mood to think about this issue as their priority is only winning the next election at any cost, money or lives.

      Sri Lankan Sinhala Buddhist extremists, the government elected by them and the state lead by them have bitten more than what they can swallow.

      India is not bothered about Muslims, especially with Modi in place, or Tamils for that matter while the atrocities against them continue unabated. India is only concerned about keeping good relations with the Sri Lankan state, their investments, and keeping China at bay.

      Now the Muslims are asking external protection and security.

      Tamils are asking for justice and protection from the UN while the security forces are grabbing their lands and raping their women and children. The security forces are law unto themselves with government connivance.

      The rogue state of Sri Lanka seems to be oblivious to the gathering dark clouds. Sixty six years of Sinhala state racism has reached its climax.

      “In a comment to Al-Jazeera, Thawheed Jamaat representatives had stated they no longer wish to rely on the Sri Lankan government to ensure the security of the local Muslim community.”

      This is a partially true statement, sometimes, they protect, sometime they don’t and assist the Sinhalese Buddhist killers and rioters.

      So, Expose, Expose and expose. Let every state know that.

      Tweet, Tweet and Tweet
      Facebook, Facebook and Facebook,

      Write Letters, Write e-mails, and write petitions.

      They are NOT protecting Buddhism either.

      They are not even Protecting Buddhism.

      Sinhala Buddhism is Killing.. Ask the Tamils . Why did they Attack The Temple of the Tooth?. Why are the Mahanayakas silent?

      Now Sinhalese Buddhism and Buddhist Terrorists are the same. All Sinhalese will be called Terrorists and genocidal.

      Sign the petition UN HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISION:

      Charge the BODU BALA SENA,(BBS) Its Leader GNANASARA Thero for GENOCIDE http://www.avaaz.org/en/petition/UN_HUMAN_RIGHTS_COMMISION_Charge_the_BODU_BALA_SENABBS_Its_Leader_GNANASARA_Thero_for_GENOCIDE/?copy

      Why this is important to me To STOP further GENOCIDE in Sri Lanka against its peaceful Muslim community similar to the Genocide unleased against them on 15th of June 2014, in southern Sri Lanka. 90% of the people of Sri Lanka are AGAINST this racist violence but NO ACTION is taken by the Government which indirectly supports this groups racist actions and agenda.

      “However, they have rejected such allegations and have assured they do not support any kind of terrorism.”

      Remember, Most Sinhala Buddhists lie. The truth is the casualty. They lie about Buddha Dhamma, and it is not big deal for the Monks and Sinhala Buddhist politicians to lie even with facts and evidence in front of them. See how they released 13 of the arrested killers. See how the JMO, The Police and the politicians lied. So, Expose, Expose and Expose.

      Expose the Truth, and discard Falsehood.

      “One reason why muslims be it moguls or arabs didn’t invade Sri Lanka was that the Sri Lanken kings were allowing muslims to practice there religion peacefully and no muslim property were harmed.”

      It was Mighty Cholas and Vijayanagara empire which prevented Muslim invasion before 16th century thus protecting Sri Lanka as well. After 16th century, it was European arrival which stopped invasion of Muslims in to South India and Sri Lanka.

      That is why you see a lots of invasion of Muslim Kings in the north India but not in the South…. Specially Tamil Nadu.

    I personally do not think that Thawheed Jamaath should be taken seriously.They generally wish to Grand Stand and do not represent the Muslim Community of Sri Lanka. They cause more harm to Muslims of SL rather than being custodians. Their irresponsible utterances caused lot of harm to Islam in the recent past when they went to mess with Buddhism without knowing the facts and later apologised.

    I see no reason to take them seriously and press the panick button.

    This guy looks so immature to hand over the responsibility of protecting the Muslim community of SL. Who does he think, he is.

    Sadly our Security Establishment wants to go to town with it and BBS must be already arranging a Press Conference as we speak for just an utterance by a NOBODY.

        And while Amarasiri the sage squats with his pants down to bog, scribbling on the ground, there comes a BBS soldier commands him to report to the Busnayaka of Kolom Korale, Amarasiri refuses, in a fit of rage the BBS’s thunderstorm soldier takes down the Amarasiri of his soul, and capitulates his head to the evidence of the Busnayaka. Thus ends the saga of a great scholar, the self-proclaimed pupil of Marx, Engles and Trotsky, and the philosopher of Egalitarianism into the time of oblivion, amen.

          Were it not for the ethnic cleansing of Muslims by psychopath VP they too would have perished in Mullivaakkal along with their Tamil brethren.

          According former LTTE there were about 200 Muslim youth trained, lived and fought along Tamil cadres before they were cleansed.

          Did you protest in front of the LTTE Embassy wherever you live? When hundreds of Muslims were massacred did you protest and support their families?

          Please remember in 1915 your learned stupid people were with racist Sinhala/Buddhist, defending their murderers.

      I don’t accept Thowheed version of Islam either.But that

      are made to live by successive governments running back
      a century now.Governments and religious establishments
      had not done anything remarkable to bring communities
      together.When they vaunted of their patriotism,they did
      so deliberately excluding other,non-Sinhala communities
      and it is obvious for everyone to see.They are reminding
      us not to forget 1915,every time they are in power.IT IS
      VERY MISLEADING TO SAY THAT MUSLIMS OF SRILANKA ARE
      COMFORTABLE WITH THE MAJORITY.THE CASE IS,MUSLIMS IN THE

      BUSINESSES ARE NOT TOLERATED IN MANY PARTS OF THE

    It is with regret that WE SRI_LANKANS have to brace for another war at the initiation of GOAT-A and MR via the services of BBS, JHU,Ravaya Balaya and other Sinhalese Buddhist extremists. The Serpent (Gandassara) has been fed by GOATA and has over grown…He cannot rein in Gandassara and now things have gotten out of hand. GOAT wanted a bogey to tell the world OH WE HAVE ISLAMIC TERRORISM, so they would come to assist him and shut down the investigation by the UN… Now Islamic Terrorism is being FORCED to take its ugly head IN SL … LTTE didnt have FOREIGN fighters on the ground.. BUT Muslims will have them come .. courtesy of the Inhuman slaughtering and destruction to properties done by BBS.

    Can we SRI- LANKANS afford another war? HECK NO… but why would MR and GOATA care? all they want is to hold on to power at any cost..

    Is this happpening in Sri Lanka and other non-Islamic countries too”

    LONDON (AP) — A British government investigation found evidence Tuesday that Muslim fundamentalists successfully gained control of some schools, raising fears that pupils are now vulnerable to radicalization.

    It said there was an “effective take-over” by like-minded people of a number of schools in Birmingham, Britain’s second-largest city, leading to “the reinforcement of Muslim identity to the exclusion or disparagement of others.”

    AT the beginning Prabhakaran and his lunatics too were oozing with confidence and talked big like this banking on their foreign masters.

    If the Muslims of Sri Lanka wish to live peacefully practicing their religion as they did in the past they should see to that these foreign parasites don’t get to breed and do it asap.

    Aluthgama might well have been be a trap set up by these parasites where Buddhists and Muslims fell blindly.

    Today Muslims live through out Sri Lanka without any hinderance,when this idiot claims they need security from foreign countries to live in Sri Lanka. What he means should be a foreign Muslims Army Stationed all over Sri Lanka to protect the Muslims.

    Not only Thawheed Jamaat but every peace loving Sri Lankan feels insecure under MARA/GOTA dictatorship.MARA/ GOTA clan wants to take Sri Lanka towards a Thug’s state govern by family rule.

    Importing ethenol, drugs, cocain, casinos and prostitution to intoxicate youth and instigate communal violance while silencing Police, Judiciary and media are part of their game plan to to take Sri Lanka towards a Thug’s state govern under a Family dictatorial regime while using BBS thugs, white vans, motor cycles with fraudulent number plates and armed forces to supress, intimidate and silence opposition parties and masses.

    It’s not only Muslims but all peace loving citizens of all communities are vulnerable to Mara/ Gota onslaught.

      What nonsense? Are you sleep talking? Wake up man. This President’s mismanagement is the cause of all problems of all the citizens in this country. There are farmers committing suicide while MR is partying and opening Arcades and shopping malls with firework displays (sending money into the sky up into flames and smoke). MR and his brother Gota are both behind all this racial tension which has backfired on them, due to Muslims absorbing the punishment with patience and not reacting. Upto now, no one has been arrested and produced in Courts, after 4 murders have been committed, and you call the President is fair to all the citizens. He will leave a legacy as the most unjust ruler this country has ever had in recent history, and that says a lot about his poor administration. May be you get your salary from him so you need to do your part to get him re-elected. That’s O.K. but don’t expect Muslim votes for MR this time for sure. By his own actions, he has only himself to blame as he isolated himself from all Muslims living in SL. Were you witness the success of massive islandwide response to the call of a Muslim hartal (closure of Muslim shops, schools, businesses, transport) throughout SL in response to the aftermath of the violence. MR referred to a a response to ‘Sulu Devel’ – minor incident referring to destroyed Muslim homes, businesses and Muslim life and limb? Is this the mind-set of a fair minded President? Is it right for him to talk that way? If you call yourself a Muslim, where do you stand in support of your community as a brother of Islam? Or else, if you are an impersonator pretending to be Muslim, then all I can say to you is, here is where the buck stops for you. You stand exposed.

      There are no extreme ideologies like Taliban’s and ISIS’ among Sri Lanka Muslims. There is no Islamic sect in Sri Lanka for example preaching to kill followers of other religions. From the way Siddeek writes, probably he is a non-Muslim and what he says only gives support for the BBS propaganda. Also like Gnanasara, Siddeek knows next to nothing about Islam.

      Siddeek, if you are reading this, please demonstrate you are qualified to speak about Islam, by explaining in this forum with supporting evidence what is wrong about Wahhabism. I am sure all what you know about Islam and Wahhabism is what you picked up from Christian websites. Prove me wrong.

    TJ in SL is an insignificant group of disgruntled youth who have risen to popularity since they are taking on the might of the chauvinist Sinhala forces. There are not a terrorist force per se, although the BBS and the government have been using their name as a punching bag. They too are using the same freedom of speech as Gnanasara to make a clarion call against these Buddhist chauvinist forces. On the other hand their name sakes in Tamilnadu, youth about the same age group, have a large following, and may very well be connected as a branch. They are quite vociferous in their protests and their religious lectures strong and forceful. There are some recordings of same on YT. It may be that they are reaching out to their local branch with support and solidarity to raise the alarm before the violence happens again. It just may be saber rattling to push these dark forces onto the back foot. Me think it is a good move, since we need to block a repeat of the violence from all fronts. Local and international pressure, legal and political pressure, regional and now a new front – the possibility of a terrorist retaliation threat to keep these marauders at bay.

    In a recent video clip i saw that first stone was thrown at a person who was walking peacefully on the road from the crowd where Muslims of Aluthgama were standing. Then immediately I witnessed missiles of stones coming from a roof top of a house where these Muslims people were standing. So who triggered the violence in Aluthgama that caused unbearable damages to innocent people.

    Shame on our own Muslims who just behave like they know nothing and pretending to be innocent.

    Yes, BBS conducted many meetings all over the country, including in Kandy, Badulla, Matale and not a single Muslim came out of their home and created problem on the street.

      The matter is not who threw the first stone, but why did outside forces invade Muslim areas after a fiery speech peppered with racial tones. We all know it is hard to decisively conclude with pin-point accuracy as to who cast the first stone based on available evidence of videos footage, since these are limited to views from one angle only taken from a fixed point – a single spot, while the the invading forces of nearly 1000 men and women stretched to cover a whole street. The first stoning could have started anywhere amongst the entire crowd mix. It is foolish for anyone to think that the problem started with the casting of the first stone, it is much more than that, but the BBS monks want everyone to think along those lines and we consistently oblige without thinking. The truth is that those dark forces use this ploy to distract attention to the fact that it was they with their well armed goons carrying mammoty poles, iron rods, swords, hand-bags filled with rock stones were instrumental in provoking Muslim attack by marching boldly in groups and in clusters right through Muslim dominated areas, whereas if they had not gone that, nothing of this sort would have ever happened. It was a simple case of incitement followed by provocation. Of course they use their twisted logic to serve their interests, by saying this is SL and belongs to them, and they can go anywhere they want, whenever they want, and who is there to challenge them.

      In any case the attacks took a leaf off a military maneuver as well, which was the element of surprise. This worked to their advantage as well when springing a sudden attack, whilst the Muslims were never prepared nor expecting such ferocity. Thus the failure to respond effectively, thus falling a cropper. What came worst off was the ineffective police inaction, ceremonial STF standing and watching, and heavily armed army caniving with looters and arsonists, all operating under blanket cover of a one sided curfew meant only for Muslims. According to eye witness reports, the army is accused of firing and killing unarmed innocent Muslim civilians. But those who committed those crimes roam scot free and are out in the open, whilst there has still been no inquiry and justice meted out for these murders. Oh I guess Muslim lives are worthless to this racist government forces. We can only hope for justice from our Creator Allah.

I sense that by the years end, foreign fighters will make their way to the island and is already taking place and no arrogant Sri Lankan Army will be able to take on the Taliban fighters. Can this coming storm be stopped? Indeed, arrest all these rouge priests, throw them in prison and throw away the keys. Otherwise, we are approaching swiftly for a war which will make the LTTE look like schoolboys.

      You are dreaming heavyli as a child. Sri Lanka is a island. You cannot bring or fight a war with foriegners. It will end up in a real sad state. This is the reality. No one want a war. No one should be killed. Fight for freedom, liberal freedom… matured way.Build a Sri Lankan nation.

        This is an island of course..and foreigners can ONLY come via the sea route shouldnt be our thinking, we should NOT forget that it was Pakistani Fighter Pilots who were instrumental in bringing the war with the LTTE to a close by supporting with air cover. IF they had the coordinates for the North, I bet they have the co ordinates for the South( Mattala Airport, Hambantota sea port), West( Parliament, Temple Trees, Presidential House, Army Headquarters, Navy Headquarters) and Central ( Dalada Maligawa)North Western (Anuradapura, Polonnaruwa, Sigiriya) Sri-Lanka. ……

        WE also should NOT forget the fact that India came and dropped “Parippu” in SL during the peak of war with LTTE… SO its NOT rocket science to know that foreigners CAN come to SL… WITHOUT NOTICE, FOR WE HAVE VERY LIMITED AIR POWER… NOTHING COMPARED TO INDIA PAKISTAN OR EVEN MOST MIDDLE EASTERN COUNTRIES. So we better watch out..or else we may seek destruction by our own actions…

      LTTE aren’t a bunch of Taliban dumb Muslums. LTTE still running the show, they are just laying low atm. When they rise gun bullets follow. If Muslums start a rebellion like the LTTE, it’l be like LKG to UKG. Plus Muslims were boot licking the Sinhala government when LTTE were fighting for equal rights. Muslims don’t have a chance to even have a 2% impact of what the LTTE had. Muslim people better worship the Sinhalese than go against them. Face towards Jarapassa house and pray instead of facing towards Mecca.

    Reyan,You are dead right.They were peacefully walking with ever ready missiles of backpack also after a peaceful meeting addressed by peace dove Ponnasara how to behave like ponnayos on their way back. You are dead right and even your government is right. Police was not standing idle as MP Thewaperuma was saying.Death was not caused by Bullet but by beating.Justice Minister was wrong.No Limit was not torched by Arsonists but by Electric Short. All were lies.
    YOU ARE DEAD RIGHT AND YOUR MARA GOVERNMENT TREATS ALL IT’S CITIZENS EQUALLY.
    PLS GO WASH MARA FAMILYS UNDER GARMENTS WITHOUT TALKING BULL LIKE AN IDIOT.

      The logic here is,a simple one.BBS is Buddhist extremism,
      and the TJ is Muslim extremism.BBS is going round the
      country,preaching very open hatred against all Muslims,
      at times acting as informants to the police,with the
      full knowledge of all defense apparatus.TJ works to
      reform Muslims to Wahabism and has a limited territory
      with a limited goal which is being magnified by BBS as
      a threat to the nation while they themselves are the
      real threat even to the very existence of Buddhism and
      Sinhalese.One obvious irritation to BBS is,the very
      friendly relations of Muslims with the Sinhalese.This
      is what they see as a threat.Tamils wanted an “EALAM”
      out of Srilanka,so they were a threat and dealt with.
      Now Muslims are accused of “ELLAAM”(all),means whole
      country is going to be Muslim one day.So,hate Muslims
      is their call.What’s then wrong in TJ seeing the need
      for protection from wherever possible?

    There is no place for extremist Wahabism and Sri Lanka’s Muslims lived and benefitted from the country like any other community. They dominated trade, amassed wealth, got educated like everyone else. Our Muslim girl friends dressed like anyone else. These extreme Muslims are not as much a problem to the Buddhists but their extreme demands to follow fundamentalism and Taliban type life is a HUGE PROBLEM FOR MUSLIMS. Many have said so in Private. But the moderates must speak up before they are swallowed up.

    Sri Lanka gave space and opportunity for all. If at all there was reverse discrimination against Sinhalese who had to treat everyone alike. That as the bottom line, there were no special favors for Sinhala Buddhists over others. But it was not the same, Christians help Christians. Tamils pull for Tamils even if they have to cheat. Muslims help Muslims. Buddhism teaches compassion so they have to take everything. BBS is not the answer but at the same time what people forget is that BBS lost its patience with what is going on. Remember the war was won by laying down 90% Sinhala Buddhist lives. Then peace brought prosperity and it is not prosperity for only Sinhalese buddhists. Everyone shares the goodies! But they forget who laid down lives. Today, there is no Sinhala Buddhist country. Muslims can go to the middle east. Where do Sinhalese go? Muslim countries do not tolerate even a Christian Bible or Buddhist books in the hands of other believers. There is ZERO tolerance for other religions. But they expect to dominate other countries. Not only Sri Lanka, try visiting Europe. It is first refugees, then comes the take over, next come ramming Sharia Law. WOMEN SHOULD BEWARE! YOU ALL ARE THE LOSERS! SHARIA DOES NOT RESPECT NON MUSLIMS YES, BUT MOST OF ALL IT DOES NOT RESPECT EVEN MUSLIM WOMEN! STAND UP TO THIS MADNESS OF FUNDAMENTALISM. BECOME A “MALALA” AND STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS FROM THESE DIRTY MEN WHO SAY ONETHING AND PRACTISE SOMETHING ELSE. Away from the public eye, they have women, drink alcohol and dabble in everything leaving the women home all covered up. That is what they want to bring to all people in the world.

    Soon Muslim sects will kill each other like in every Muslim majority country.

    Muslims should spare a though for their relatives in Palestine who are slaughtered in hundreds during Ramadan.

    As usual most comments are not relevant to the issue at hand. The question that needs to be addressed is “should the security establishment be concerned when a fringe group calls for outside help?”

    If we had a political leadership that treats all citizens as equal we would not have citizens crying out for help. Unfortunately we have different classes of citizens in this country, and a security establishment that supports this worldview.

    If Tamils were not protected in ’83. Muslims in ’14 what would you expect minorities to do? Again how did the government react to the pogrom? Instead of doing its duty by the people the government enacted draconian laws to curb their basic freedoms including the right tosafety and shelter.

    And after 30 long years of bloodshed we still think we are a brave nation that fought and won a brutal war. Have we not heard of the phrase ” that may be true for you,but not for me”. To the minorities what is true is that it was a war without witnesses, a war without reason, a war fought in vain……..

      What happened to Tamils after 1983?

      They got a worse punishment in 2009.

      Same thing for Muslims. If Muslims want to start war over Aluthgama 2014, get ready to cry genocide 26 years later.

        Look at this Sinhala dumb cat. Like this Sinhala inbred and his countrymen defeated the LTTE? The lame Sinhalese had to beg the whole world for over a decade to defeat the almighty Tamil tigers. Took these lame Sinhalese over 30years to defeat them. Even 20 sinha-lame soldiers weren’t equivalent to a Tiger rebel. [Edited out] sinhala modaya go and watch Soora papa cartoon on Rupawahini.

          A Tamil told me just after the war was brought to an end by Hindia, that he didn’t understand the LTTE and VP who won the 4th largest army (Hindian armed forces)in the world got decimated by this puny stupid Sinhala army.

          Do you still believe LTTE had won the war and VP has gone on well earned extended holiday?

    Muslims are in a fight or flight situation catch 22 because police and army turned a blind eye. Muslims can’t fight and Tamilnadu won’t give place for them. They should go wherever they can go to safeguard their life style which is their dignity. Not an exodus they should be welcomed as talented not as refugees. A strong muslim diaspora is formed, there would be calls to come back. ”No better place to live in like Lanka you are moors not only muslims, come with petro dollars” (see hansard search ‘diaspora’)

    Muslims, except those few who grovel at the feet of Gotabaya Rajapaksa, and betray their community, know that their person or property is not secure any more. They know that the Government will not protect them from marauding Buddhist thugs. Excuse the oxymoron.

    Mahinda Rajapaksa, shame on you. May it not be long before you are served your retribution.
