The Day Metta, Karuna, Mudita And Upekkha Were Mercilessly Slaughtered

By Mohammed Jehan Khan

Sri Lanka was once known as the exotic resort of the Indian Ocean and known to many European tourists as the ‘Nation of Smiling People’. However, recent incidents that took place in Aluthgama and Beruwala (engineered by the government backed yellow goons) gave this nation somewhat more scary monikers and bloodier epithets. 

So what really is the problem? The problem is a ‘Nazi‘ one, introducing Aryan myth to a religion that defies racism. Like many Nazis some radical and extremist elements in the country think they are above everything, they are superior to everything and every resource belongs to them. The speech of Galagodaaththe Gnanasara that triggered violence in Aluthgama reminds me of the ‘Sportsplast‘ Speech of Hitler on September 4, 1940. Hitler squawked before his brainwashed followers:

“If the British drop two, three or four thousand kilos of bombs, then we will now drop 150,000, 180,000, 230,000, 300,000 or 400,000 kilos, or more, in one night. If they declare that they will attack our cities on a large scale, we will erase theirs!”

And between each sentence, they chanted “Hitler, Hitler, Hitler”, and as soon as he raised his hand, they stopped.

Compare this to Gnanasara’s speech:

“If one marakkalaya (Muslim) lays a hand on a Sinhalese that will be the end of all of them”.

And between each sentence, they chanted “Saadu, Saadu, Saadu”.

It is therefore clear that these bald headed extremists do not differ from Nazis and are cruel to those who oppose their ideologies.

In Sri Lanka the liberty of belief, faith and worship as enshrined in the constitution has been implemented by incorporating the fundamental rights of all citizens to “Freedom of Religion” and “Equality”. It is therefore proved that every citizen of this country has his own freedom to follow his religion and has equal rights to the majority Sinhalese.

BBS AluthgamaSri Lanka is a multi religious, multi cultural and multi ethnic country. All the major religions in the country viz; Buddhism, Christianity, Islam and Hinduism teach their followers to imbibe the love of truth, faith in God and love for all human beings. Yet some radical elements in the country have developed ethno-centric attitudes and peculiar racist attitudes regarding their own religion and race.

Today Buddhism, the opiate of the majority mass, denigrates people through communal violence, riots at the behest of political parties and their unscrupulous leaders.

Democracy, although the most popular concept of this century, has not proved itself a success in this country. The government and the local media always have this tendency to look beyond the rights of the minority. The Aluthgama incident bears witness to this, since four days have  passed  and the perpetrators have not been brought to justice and Gnanasara and his gang freely roam  the length and breadth of the country.

What happened in Aluthgama and Beruwala were not some isolated incidents. They are an outcome of a series of events that metamorphosed   followed by the attack of Dambulla mosque on April 20, 2012. Late last year, a similar mob also led by Buddhist monks destroyed another Muslim place of worship in Grandpass, Colombo 14, under the watchful eyes of Police officers.

The government which continued to claim concern for protecting the rights and freedom of the minority population  repeatedly failed to put the culprits behind bars. It was a well planned and engineered exercise by the racists to destroy the economic prosperity of Muslims in this region.

The government and Muslim leaders elected by the people  should take  full responsibility since from their recent conduct it is proven that they have failed to protect the rights and dignity of the Sri Lankan Muslim and have failed to take measure against the recent attacks created by ‘Senas and Balayas‘ targeting the Muslim Community, Mosques and Muslim business establishments.

As usual President Rajapaksa tweeted: “I urge all parties concerned to act with restraint. An investigation will be held for the law to take its course of action to bring to book those responsible …” Despite these spurious and defending statements against culprits, his actions have done nothing to stop the continuous attacks targeting the Muslims. It is surprising why a president, the head of the government has no capacity to stop the acts of Bodu Bala Sena or to find the culprits who attacked the mosque without issuing statements.

Muslim countries on the other hand have also failed to protect their Muslim counterparts living in this Island for more than 1000 years. It is a cause for surprise that the concern shown by India towards the ethnic Tamil people in Sri Lanka is not being shown by any Arab-Muslim countries with regard to the Muslim’s problem in Sri Lanka, with as much enthusiasm as that displayed by them in their support of a racist Sri Lankan regime before the Human Rights Council in Geneva.

The mainstream media has also failed to give an unbiased report on this issue. Maharaja Television Networks which spent almost five hours to cover the release of General Sarath Fonseka and some petty UNP fights between Ranil and Sajith, has also turned its back against this violence.

Today the entire Muslim community lives in fear. They don’t know what is going to happen next. Once the current uproar fizzles out and media focus/ public attention shifts to the upcoming Presidential election, the Muslim community of Sri Lanka will be left alone and bereft.

The Aluthgama incident will be soon forgotten and after few months of silence the racists will reemerge and attack the Muslim community more vigorously. So to ensure the safety of Muslims and minority communities in general what should be done?

1. Arrest Gnanasara!

2. Ban BBS, Ravana Balaya and Sinhala Ravaya

3. Ensure minority safety

4. Restore Muslim-Sinhala unity

5. Ban all the racist Facebook pages that are positively threatening the peace and prosperity of the nation

6. The misinterpretation and misuse of ‘Sinhalese freedom’ should be checked.

Ironically the mahouts of our nation – the racist politicians and the bureaucrats are in cahoots to scuttle the freedom of our minorities. This nexus has misinterpreted and misused the notion of freedom, allowing more freedom to the majority Sinhalese and less freedom to the minority.

Democracy in Sri Lanka is a sad mockery of Abraham Lincoln’s famous description:”The Government of the people, by the people and for the people”. Sadly in Sri Lanka the leader is elected only from the 75 percent vocal majority, and never from the 25 percent powerless minority.

Until then, Sri Lanka will meander along as a ‘Can’t be developed country,’ ‘Racist country’ and ‘Sinhalese only state’ ruled by an oriental despot and orange robe thugs. The majority Sinhalese community has a duty to show the world that you are an altruistic people. This is needed more so today than ever before.

    Nobody could seek any justice, truth,protection, compensation or reconciliation from President Rajapakse double acting, double game, gimmick, double talk Joker.

    Infact they should seek help, protection and justice from International community.

    Listen to the following inspirational parliament speech from JVP Anura kumara Dissanayake.

    http://www.lankatruth.com/home/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=7126:video-anuras-speech-that-stunned-the-government-&catid=42:smartphones&Itemid=74

    This is the truth of what is going on in Sri Lanka at the moment.

    JVP should help protect minority community from Rajapakse,Gota, BBS, JHU instigated Sinhala Buddhist racist communal violance on minorities throughout Sri Lanka. They already have started their onslaught on minorities.

    Therefore seeking justice and protection from Rajapakses is a joke.

    All minority communities should unite and should go to UN, and Foreign governments to seek justice and protection before Rajapakses, BBS, JHU unleash another 1983 progrom.

      In addition, the communities need to form Home Guard Groups Against the BBS terrorists, to be available within a short notice, and need to recruit the help of surroundings good Sinhala Villages who follow true Buddhism.

      The terrorists are using lies on order to persuade the good Sinhala Buddhist to hate.

      The message need to be send you will defend if attacked.

      In addition, Sue BBS and their goons for Rs, 10,000 million, and file reports with the local police, the President, The MP’s and UNHRC and all SARRAC Countries.

      Expose the terrorists and their supporters..

      Expose, expose, expose..

        “The message need to be send you will defend if attacked.”

        When the state armed forces uses terror tactics like curfew/ no fire zones etc to gather the villages and let the paramilitary mobs loose the people are wiser and suffer less because they can never be organised due to white van.

        The USAID is hitting its target on Lankan soil – thank Mrs b for Diego Garcia and the socialist with the Americans and Indians in their pockets.

        Lanka the future Egypt of Asia with its 2500 year history and junta government like north korea but backed by US/UK

    If anything would go in the line of Justice is just a dream so long the bunch of thugs have the parliamentarian 2/3 mandate. – PIGS might fly

    Irrespective of the probelms that the nation experienced for the last 3 decades, today to CREATE or make all environment for an another RIOTS is a curse. Alas this is the not the general view of lanken fundementalists – born to Rajapaksche family. He travels to Bolivia by giving his close allies to react accordingly. Rajapaakshe is as his own family feels is BORN unpredicable person. This man is the absolute Karama for entire nation.
    I am born sinhala, but I would love to be a srilankan though living out of srilanka for the last 3 decades.

    Jehan, you say,
    “The majority Sinhalese community has a duty to show the world that you are an altruistic people. This is needed more so today than ever before.”

    Altruism and Sinhalese don’t mix together my friend. The majority Sinhala community are all infected with the ‘racist’ gene. It is incurable.

    We must call a spade a spade and we must recognise that Buddhism in Sri Lanka stands for today. Like Peace Lover has stated above, for a Sri Lankan Buddhist today “Metta, Karuna, Mudita And Upekkha” simply mean “intorlerance, jealousy, greed and lust”. They thrive on the latter.

    100% agree with you. Every Buddhist who truly believes in the teaching of Lord Buddha, Muslim, Hindu, Christian should get on to the road to protest not only to the points you have mentioned in this writing but also seek for the resignation or sacking of Gothabaya.

      So what are you trying to do?? Get the Hindus on the streets too? Wishful thinking; they weren’t there for the Tamil cause either- Hindus are born no conversion no crusade no protest like in present day religious politics.

      Sivaji the great of the Deccan who fought the Muslim invaders of the north and the European invaders from the south had a large Muslim naval force that beat the Portuguese and the Brits till 1818 and their East India Company treaty.Swami vivekananda only respected this man of many faiths in his speech.

      So you see there is no religion but a community of natives and foreign invasions
      Sihala Buddhist are foreigners who have been robbing and producing like mice I suppose so.

    CT readers will be interested to [Edited out]

    We are sad to reveal nevertheless, so far none of the perpetrators of these crimes have been arrested. As of now Gnanasara and his drunken goons are roaming free inciting hatred and unleasing violence. Although the law compels their arrest, ironically it is seven Muslim victims who are now in police custody.

    Out of the nine Muslims killed, two were shot to death by BBS goons in Dharga Town on the 15th. There is no investigation how these murderers obtained fire arms. There has been no magisterial enquiry.

    It is well known that Medamulana MaRa started the terrorist organizations BBS and Sihala Ravaya. He nurtured and fattened them with the Government’s Secret Security Fund. The Buddhist terrorists (oxymoron? Ha, ha!!) are now wreaking havoc.

    Prior to his departure for Bolivia, the Mara instructed his criminal to use Gnanasara to create pandemonium among the Muslim community. And while his brother was faithfully carrying out “orders” he babahukumly tweeted from Bolivia “everyone please, exercise restraint”.

    Upon returning to the country, the first thing that this “concerned” President did was tour the devasted Aluthgama and Beruwala to inspect and admire the handiwork of his loyal brother. They hugged and embraced each other just like in that salivating photo readers have seen so many times on these pages and puked. Gota says to Mara “Aiye, hereafter no Sinhala Buddhist will ever vote for anyone but for you”. Mara says “Sadhu, sadhu, father will be very proud”.

    Sinhalese will do Buddhism good if they give it up. How can a race that believes in its creation through bestiality and buggery ever think of being Buddhist. Their history is full of parricides and racist wars. The nikayas are based on caste. They have the highest murder rates in the world. Their politics is shrouded in the hatred of minorities. They constantly bray for blood, as you see from the speech of the BBS thug Gnanasara.

    Better go back to the animism of the kattadiyas, which is the real belief of the Sinhalese. At least the kattadiya only kills an occasional chicken. The Sinhalese have been revelling in the blood of the minorities for so long. Give Buddhism a chance. Please give it up.

      Ponkoh Sivakumaran, You have very accurately described the Sinhalese. Truly they must give up Buddhism. I wonder whether the Sinhalese were ever Buddhists in the first place.

      Shouldn’t we liberate Buddha’s teaching from Sinhala/Buddhism?

      “Their politics is shrouded in the hatred of minorities.”

      They not only hate minorities but also hate themselves.

      “The Sinhalese have been revelling in the blood of the minorities for so long.”

      Don’t forget they have been soaked in their own Sinhala/Buddhist blood as well.

    Mamu Khan,

    With ISI intrusion Iran has got a god given opportunity to work with its enemy USA.
    If you could approach India and NaMo then it would be like a Bosnia being rescued from the catholic.

    The IAF only needs the call to bomb. The ones who were under the pay of Sihala governments is well known in the circles of the forces.

    As a first step try obtaining Arab nations stopping visas until all Muslims are released from custody and the Sihala Buddhist are charged. Remember the UK man murdered was of Arab decent and a Muslim too- even prince Charles has not succeeded.

    So this is the opportunity- freedom is always plucked as it is never given.

    Mid East will root out the Radical Buddhists who are funding this carnage including the racists. Mid East already have a taste of bitterness with the Burmese Radical ‘Buddhists’ and linking them to the BBS brand of ‘Buddhism’ is a no brainer. It’s up to the peaceful Buddhists to come out in large number and show the world that they are a different brand of Buddhists; serious in preserving their ideology and not leaving to their Rulers.

    Jehan, you have said a lot that many of us endorse. In fact Lasantha’s link to JVP Leader Anura’s thundering speech in Parliament exposing the ill effects of familial rule is also well appreciated. The time has come now for Sri Lankan Muslims to jump ship and seek political asylum in other countries and fight this battle with International support. Alone and by themselves they can never dream of getting justice with this racist government.

      ” Sri Lankan Muslims to jump ship and seek political asylum”

    Mohammed Jehan Khan,
    I agree 100%!

    However, institutions should also be put in place so that minorities can understand the need of the majority, and work accordingly with them. No more Muslims going about in bakha-billa costumes (e.g.), no more Burghers rat-a-tat-ing to natives in Sinhala with accents that colonial-masters used, no more Tamils studying like hell but having no ability and intellect to create jobs but expecting the Sinhalese to produce jobs for them. Sri Lanka should be understood and realized. Racism will not do it. Clear thinking and good governance will.
