The Spirit Of Sinhala New Year & The ‘Boycott Of Muslim Goods’ 

By Lakmal Harischandra

Lakmal Harischandra

Robert Knox has said that the “Sinhala New Year is the greatest feast of the Sinhala race”. Sinhala/Tamil New year is the annual traditional cultural event of the Sinhala and Tamil communities in our country.  The purpose of this event is to build bridges among people and break the dividing walls if any. The whole island takes on a festive mood as people gear up for the upcoming celebrations by cleaning homes, shopping and making New Year sweetmeats, to begin the New Year on a joyous and positive note. The best part is the preparation of sweetmeats and purchasing new clothes. In Sri Lanka it is the cuckoo that heralds the dawn of the New Year. The mood of the occasion is such that none can stay aloof, isolated or dissociate themselves with the hubbub that is annually made. Today the Sinhala Ayurudda has become a national fiesta engaging all in celebration of family and togetherness and harmony between all communities. As such Hela Avurudda is symbol of togetherness and “harmony.

The sound of firecrackers and the rhythm of ‘rabana’ (drum) signal that it’s the dawn of a new beginning. The hearth is lit by the lady of the house facing the designated direction (which varies every year) and either the traditional new year dish, Kiribath, is cooked or a pot of milk is boiled, both signifying prosperity. Families sit around the table and share the kiribath, as the head of the family offers it to all members. After this the oil lamp is lit and the feast commences. After meals, children show respect to their elders by offering sheaves of betel and elders bless them. The elders in return would give them money and commence the first financial transaction (ganu denu) of the New Year. Plates of sweets and other goodies are exchanged between neighbours ( of all nationalities) and it is a tradition that the plates should not be returned empty. Families visit their relatives and friends forgetting resentments and to strengthen their relationships during this joyous season.

When this is the brotherly spirit with which our ancestors celebrated the new year, there has been an unsavoury trend in recent times to create divisions and bitterness among communities through various hate ruses. One of the worst developments has been the advocacy of a boycott of goods from Muslim shops, promoted among Sinhala people, in the period before the New year by disgruntled elements and vested interests. This hate campaign starts off in the social media followed by both colourful posters on city walls and dog whistles in the run up to the New year. This campaign carried out by hate peddlers possibly supported by some sections of the Sinhala business competitors, naturally make the gullible Sinhala peasantry to take the boycott as an act of  displaying ‘Jathiya-aalaya’ (nationalistic fury) with much emotion and misplaced enthusiasm.

It is recalled that during the Post-war period , the Bodu Bala Sena along with other sister bodies called for the boycott of Halal goods and also Muslim owned companies including clothing stores such as No-Limit and Fashion Bug. Many stores were set on fire as well.  This resulted not only in a loss of business to the individual companies but also placed the stores and their staff at risk, growing to a larger economic boycott of Muslim businesses. Then, it was brought to light that anti-Muslim leaflets were being distributed in many Buddhist Temples during Poya days. The leaflets asked the Buddhists to boycott halal products, not to sell properties to Muslims and boycott Muslim businesses. Posters and banners also appeared threatening  the Sinhalese to boycott Muslim businesses and not to sell properties to Muslims. Eggs were also thrown at the shoppers who purchased from Muslim shops. It was also comical that propaganda in websites asked people to boycott the “Mohideen beg” songs in Buddhist Temples. Even though he was not a Buddhist, Mohidin Beg sang the most popular Buddhist theme songs in the Sinhala language. 

BBS Secretary Gnasara thero also appealed to  the Sinhalese people to boycott Muslim businesses and reject Muslim doctors as they appear to administer contraceptive pills to reduce the expansion of the Sinhala population. This latter propaganda about contraceptive pills in foods served to the Sinhalese also came up as a pretext to wage the Ampara attack in 2018 which was subsequently proved to be a canard. Thus, the ultra-nationalist BBS led by the firebrand hate monk Gnanasara Thero had been then on a nationwide rampage spreading anti-Muslim venom to cause material and psychological harm to the Muslim community. Other hate outfits like Ravana Balaya and Sihala Urumaya lent their support too. When the government changed, the people expected that status quo will change and Yahapalana regime will reign in these elements spreading hate and bigotry . They seemed to do at first, but then another repeat hate campaign was observed more as undercurrents which culminated in the Digana incident. Today, the same hate peddlers will similar agendas have sprung up and continue to inflict irreparable damage on community relations between the  Sinhala and Muslim people by way of  boycott calls and social media hate. 

An old story which comes to my mind related  by Mr. Imtiaz Bakir Marcar in one of the recent interviews he had on TV in 2013, should still raise an alarm among those who look forward to live in a future peaceful, united Sri Lanka, affording place to all, irrespective of which race they originate from. Similar incidents happen today as well. Reportedly, his Sinhala friend faced a shocking experience when he offered to buy some sweats for his neighbour’s 3 year old daughter from a nearby shop. The kid refused to go along, as it happened to be a ‘Muslim’ shop. His further inquiries revealed that  the advice came from her 6 year old sister, whose tender mind has been poisoned by her school elocution teacher. In this instance, can anyone who has a semblance of  love for our motherland , pat these kids on their backs, saying ‘well done. You kids are our future saviours of our race and religion’ . No! we cannot, as this incident symbolically reflects the degeneration of our Sinhala Buddhist values and shows to what extent this rot has infiltrated into our social body fabric. Can the BBS and other extremist outfits merely disown responsibility for this chain of causation?

It is a fact that most Muslims live outside the N & E among the Sinhalese people. Most of them know their Sinhala well and attend Sinhala medium schools as well. Muslim and Sinhala relationships have always been cordial for centuries in the South. From my school day experiences, I remember that we visit each other’s houses during the special festivals- Sinhala Avurudha and Ramazan and  were treated well, like part of the household. This type of brotherhood and friendship is most common among Sinhala and Muslim youth even today, who are not swayed by these types of hate filled boycott calls referred to earlier. Overall, these boycotts are simply placebos and not medicine at all. However, when fake and misplaced sentiments  and emotions are aroused in people that Muslims are attempting to destroy Sinhala Buddhist heritage, then it is natural that misguided youth are provoked to take the boycott calls seriously , leading to further bitterness being created among them.  

Sinhala People have always been acknowledged all-round  as a tolerant race during the course of history, accommodating the ‘other’. It is this enviable record of our proud nation that is being vilified and attacked at the roots by these extremist goons, unfortunately in the name of Buddhism. Hate mongering in the name of Buddhism is certainly a misnomer. Which ever way we may want to argue to prove that Sri Lanka is a Sinhala Buddhist land, they will ultimately be an exercise in futility, if we fail to show in spirit that tenets of Buddhism pervades our way of life – compassion, love, and concern for the ;other’. What is the use of a rose if it does not look beautiful or smell nice?. When our Constitution states that foremost place is given to Buddhism( not to Sinhala Buddhist nationalism ), the drafters surely may have clearly intended that the supreme teachings of the Enlightened One should determine the basis of our actions and not just rituals. We must lay claim to our common humanity and fraternity and admire the common-ness among us rather than laying claim to a superior nationality status in Sri Lanka, which is in effect a virus- a majoritarian virus, which eats into the fabric of our society.  The government and the law enforcement authorities should therefore look into this boycott calls and their originators and bring them to book, as they are clearly hate based strategies aimed at spreading hate and bigotry and further divide our nation. The religious leaders of the Sinhala Buddhists- Maha Sangha should also play a pivotal role in dispelling and speak up against these type of boycott calls aimed at creating further divisions in our motherland. Enough is enough!

    The Spirit Of Sinhala New Year & The ‘Boycott Of Muslim Goods’

      Lakmal Harischandra,

      Thanks for the article on the Sinhala and Tamil New Year, or rather the Tamil and Sinhala New Year, that is celebrated around April 14th, when the Sun is over the Land of Native Veddah Aethho. The South Indians also have this solar-based new year.

      Buddhism uses the Lunar calendar. So, this New Year cannot be based on Buddhism, Sinhala-Buddhism, or more accurately Para-Sinhala Buddhism, as they all came from outside the land, AFTER, the Native Veddah Aethho.

      It is rather very unfortunate that the Pristine Buddhism that was introduced to the Land, had undergone such a transformation with Para-Sinhala “Buddhism”, that racism and hate, had intertwined with Para-Sinhala Buddhism. Even though the Buddhism had been corrupted by the so-called Para-Sinhala “Buddhists” and the mindset of some perhaps many affected, still there are many Sinhala who do not subscribe to such hate, even though preached by the Saffron robes and their hateful Para-Sinhala “Buddhists”.

      Since, this is the Tamil, and Later Sinhala New Year, and turned out to be a National New Year embraced by all, the original spirit, as you mention is love and friendship,, not the hate of the hate mongers.

      This is not a religious event, but s traditional cultural event, celebrated before Buddhism, even though the Para-Sinhala “Buddhists”, would like to give a Buddhist twist to it, just like the Christians did to the Winter Solstice celebrations, by calling it Christmas, and changing Jesus Christ’s birthday from Spring or Summer to to around the Wintet solstice day.

    Most of the poor Sinhalese enjoy life from the income they get from their father, mother, sisters or brothers who work in middle-east. So why don’t these donkey extremist stop their people getting Muslim money and if that is done majority of Sinhalese won’t have money to buy from Muslim, problem solved. It is a pity these Modayas bringing the good Sinhalese within the saying “Sinhalaya Modaya Kawun Kanta Yodaya”.

      Yes, when will there be a Poster campaign by these hate mongers for Sinhala men and women to leave their jobs in the middle east and come back without working for muslims? Or to ban them from leaving the motherland to work for muslims? How many hardworking sinhala men and women have built and rebuilt their life with their hard earned wages paid by their muslim employers? Lets say there is such an insane campaign – then what will the back lash be for these hate mongers?

      Ralli Hamid,

      The mean IQ of the Land is 79. There are many Para-Sinhala whose mean IQ’s fall one standard deviations, below the mean, 64, and two standard deviations below, 49. No wonder, there are many Modayas among the Para-Sinhala, just like among the Para-Muslims.

      So, there are many Para-Sinhala, who do not know from where they came from, India, Bharat, their Homeland, like the other Paras, and for reason, the Para-Sinhala have so corrupted Buddhism, that it has become a religion of hate, instead of “Maitri”, love, just like the Satan following Wahhabi-Salafies have done to Islam, per Hadith of Najd.

      so you call it the Muslim money that the Sinhalese get. now, why not turn the table around and find out how much you Muslims get from non-muslim counties. where do the Muslim refugees go to in time of crisis? wake up you nut head do not try to remove the spec in your naibours eye. but remove first the bolt that stuck in your eye and see the world as a place to live in peace. funny you little nut head haven’t you realised that you cover your women from top to bottom with cloth but yet make a business by selling fashionable clothing to the rest. where is your doctrine of faith? what is not good for you is not good for others too..

        LAW the real nut head, it is the money earned from Muslim countries far more than earned from Western countries even in export and which helps to balance the budget. Even your finance Minister will tell you this. What the Muslim refugees going to west has got to do with this. Since migrating to the West is difficult they are exploiting UNHCR charter on Human rights to get in there. Tamils, Sinhalese and Muslims are in the same boat exploiting this. Here it is about using the Muslim money so just tell us whether Sinhalese are not using it or how to avoid using it.

          let’s be fair on this. we will say Sri Lankans are using Muslim money rather say Sinhalese. As much as any other country that does business would. this so-called money that you refer is not charity, it is earned from the job you do. sri Lankans need not avoid using that money as long has it is earned legitimately. can you give me an answer to why you cover your women from head to toe and yet do business selling fashional clothing to the rest of Sri Lankans? explain the legitimacy of that according to your faith, please

            If you have a shop mean you keep goods that sells according to the demand of people around. Shop wont keep goods that don’t sell. This applies not only to Muslims but non-Muslim too. Money is the medium of transaction so there is no Muslim money. Naturally people have to work to earn money so what they in Middle-east is from their Muslim employers and from west from their western employers. We don’t cover our women, they themselves cover. You don’t cover your women with saree but they do it themselves because it is a dress. If you go to Muslim shop that exclusively sells religious items you can see Hijab too. A shop has to include things that sells.

    Lakmal Harischandra, a lovely write up. Lack of leadership and negative leadership from both sides’ religious leaders could be a root cause. I am a Muslim, let me talk about this side; Muslim religious leaders should educate Muslims taking these as wake up calls to reform SL Muslims. First, these Muslim religious leaders should teach some discipline among Muslim community, especially during Friday prayers, they should speak about this instead of talking religious history.

    Though the trend changes now, our previous generations didn’t get enough school education and focused more on doing businesses on different scales. Though economically most of us didn’t have to depend on seeking jobs or fighting for state sectors to provide jobs, it has attributed to overall negative outlook on the community and made most of us think selfish is the truth. This situation is far, far better among educated Muslims. On average if you take Sinhalese, Tamil and Muslim youth, Muslim youth will be my last choice. We should ask ourselves, Why?

    So, when proper education is in absence, it should be the task of religious leaders to put these people on the right track. At least, we should not be the reason for other person’s anger.

    Why should non-believers who were branded or rated as vile animals do business with people who worship that hate spreading book treating as their almighty’s revelations ?????????????. Dear writer do you think readers are mad ????????? Customers have every rights to select shop or shops to buy their needs. If one shop owner think customers are vile animals as per his own religion teachings he may sell garbage. If you are looking for quality products free of garbage for his loved ones non believers should not visit shops owned by ones who believe them as evillest animals on earth. That is simple phenomena.BBS was educating their own people. Nothing wrong with it. That is their duty. Dear writer first read those literature before writing garbage like this.

      First the politicians took the people for a ride showing religion as the reason. Now the businessmen take them for a ride. All use the innocent gullible people for their own advantage, nothing else.

      When there are various other criteria influence in everybody’s buying decisions, someone coming and mentally enforcing a new rule to check the shop owner’s religion into that set of rules shows that they have decided the buyers can be taken for a ride. Next, items will be too expensive in Sinhala shops while cheap in Muslim shops – No wonder, this land is a wonder of Asia!

      As it is some of the big brands suffered boycotting Halal certification when it comes to export market. This comes in a time when local chains of food outlets owned by non-Muslims are considering to obtain Halal certification in order to expand their businesses. This shows that non-Muslim businesses want Muslim business, then how can you say Sinhalese shouldn’t buy from Muslim shops?

      I guess people are smart these days they don’t get caught to these elements as I see too many Sinhalese buyers in Hameedias and No Limits shopping.

      Dear brother

      You are right why non-believers do business with the people as you say,brand or rate them vile animals.

      At the same time you can advise them also not to earn money in countries that worship that hate spreading book.

      BBS also can call back their own people and educate them not to
      go to those countries.

It is the poverty & lack of opportunity created by corruption and mismanagement since independence. It is a plea from our Govt to those countries to consider giving us opportunity. For them, it is mainly cheap labour then bit of concession at their own discretion to poor countries.

          Most of your workers go there by bribing agents who recruits labour from this country and mostly for unskilled, none academic, menial jobs.
          There is plenty of supply from countries around the world.
          The Middle East Medieval kingdoms do not merely rely on the supply of unskilled labour from this island.

            Native Vedda alias Andra Sakkiliya As per the scientific research done by Scientists of few universities in USA & Australia suggested that Vedda community live in Lanka may be a products of Makhuwa tribal population live in Mozambique east coastal region. They might be mixed with Austronesian on arrival here & got present day features. As you are a Hindian I must address you as Andra Native Sakkiliya. Coming back to discussion Those days in 1960s all the jobs were held by Europeans, North & south Americans But growing of none align movement situation changed, After early seventies summit chaired by Mrs Bandaranayake Doors were opened for lankens to seek job opportunities in Arabic world. categories was not mentioned but academic lots had opportunities in west Europe, USA, Australia,New Zealand, Canada like that. general public seeking opportunities got chances to go for the other jobs. skill as well as Unskilled jobs, That prompted the other members of none align members to follow suit. Foolishness is there but issue is showing it in public Sakkiliya friend.

          Paraya Amarasiri First of all prove scientifically Sinhalese are parayas. As per scientific research done by few universities in USA & Australia It is suggested that Vannila aththos ancestors might have come here from south east African coast or Mozambique coast. Ancestors might be Makhuva tribes. Latter they mixed with Austronesian & got present day appearances. As such Paraya Amarasiri do some research & tell us who came first. Makhuva tribes or Austronesian??????. As I am from south coast I know I am an Austronesian.If you can prove we were late. Definitely I will go to my ancestral place Madagascar I am not faking Indian like you paraya.. .

So in the future, all shops will have name like Mohamed, Ahmed, Rajapakse, Amarasiri etc. Registration will be a tough task..ha..ha..

          Good idea.
          There are many shops already exist with their ethnic brand.
          However it is not the brand/name which brings customers in, it is the hard work, business acumen, knowing what customers want, making shopping a pleasant experience, ………………. For lazy bums like you this is not a suitable vocation, profession, trade, ……….. Instead they must look for jobs in the state sector where they come across good deal of commission under the desk.

    /
    Issuing a halal certificate is expensive process and there are no officials to check if the so called halal food is actually halal. The worst is the majority non-muslims have to pay extra for halal food as if they have nothing else to do with their hard earned money. Even food which contain PIG fat are given Halal certificates.

    It is unfortunate things have become bad for the Muslims. When irresponsible Muslim mobs began demonstrating against the USA and Israel opposite the American Embassy in Colombo 03 many people felt Muslims will have to soon pay a heavy price for this foolish Tamasha. It is understood the culprits were young Imams who had returned to the country after years of political indoctrination in what is called Salafi/Wahabi Madrasas in the Saudi Kingdom – all this part of an Islamic attempt to take the entire world. These demos continued week after week with those taking part laughing and joking in front of hundreds of on-lookers. The demos received much media attention as well

    Then came the Halal Certificate nonsense. Utterly unnecessary and provocative on the part of a section of the Muslim religious leadership. This was a god-sent opportunity to rogue Buddhist priests. BBS and Gnanassara Thera seized the opportunity for leadership of the radical Buddhists. The rest is history.

    Whatever it is, the Govt must accept Muslims are a part of the country. They are entitled to protection of the laws and the Constitution. The world is watching. Millions of innocent, law abiding Muslims – children, the old and women mostly – live in fear and uncertainty. It is the duty of the State to restore faith in the laws and the Constitution to these – our people.

    Every rupee spent at a Moslem establishment will further embellish radical Jihadi, fanatic terrorism unleashed on the Sinhalese and Tamils by means of terroristic levels of population explosion among Moslems. The families with 10 children per family need the money for the children to grow up and produce at the early age of 15 for women and 18 for men in a fanatical, maniacal rush to outnumber the Sinhalese and Tamil. It takes a ignorant of a lowest level of intelligence to refuse to see this tsunami and write mumbo jumbo about the racial matters.
    A war is being waged on the Sinhalese and Tamils by the Moslems who go to bed every day praying for Sharia and to make another child to make Lanka an Islamic Republic without firing on bullet. Wake up Lankans, open your eyes. The menacing long beards and hooded black horror of hijab dominates your landscape and the howl of the mosque calling to prayer every hour dominates your life now. You only have 10-15 years to fight back, otherwise its too late. Democracy itself will award the Moslems the sovereignty of Lanka to Moslems when they reach the point of no return. Are you insane not to see the danger and listen to voices of imbecility like this article?

      Amarasiri, you use a special term for a certain type of people in All communities – Para Sinhalese, Para Tamil, Para Muslim etc. Now, how would you call this guy, who has suddenly appeared in these pages calling himself Jay Chambers and all he does is to lambast the Muslims and hurl vile vitriol at the Muslims?

        I have not “suddenly appeared” in these pages, I have been contributing the CT for years. Also, I have been visiting Lanka since late 70s and have great friends in all communities. Mu-Handy-Ram, you are trying to silence my voice, you cannot handle freedom of speech, very obviously.
        I did not lambast any Moslems, not hurl vitriol. I am stating facts, statistics, what the eye sees, and what the Lankan government’s statisticians are hiding. There is an explosive growth in Moslems in Lanka, and its been driven by a single minded desire by Moslems leadership and a hidden hand from Jihadi fanatics Moslem elements to totally oppose any kind of birth control, and encourage Moslems to procreate as many as possible, and as early as possible and as late in life as possible. Every 15 -18 years a new generation of Moslem children are born. Lankan Tamils and Sinhalese do this only in 25-35 years and that too they make only 1 or two kids while Moslems make over 4, sometimes as high as 10 in a family. Just visit the Eastern Province and see for yourself.
        With those numbers Sinhalese and Tamils will be a minority in 15 years when the current Moslem majority age groups of newborns to 15 year age group matures and non-Moslems of ages 45 and above retire. And in every country when this happens the law will be changes to Sharia Law, Parliament will be no longer Western style but follow Islamic Republic style. Give it 30 -40 years the country will call itself an Islamic Republic and Sharia will be imposed in the strictest version, such as it just happened in Brunei.
        I am just a tourist and tourists who already fear the menacing Moslems in Lanka can just stay away.

          What a lot of CRAP you are writing man. You are a tourist visiting Sri Lanka since the 1970s and what your “eye sees” are “facts, statistics” and you have the audacity to make the Brazen claim that the “Lankan government’s statisticians are hiding” the facts.

          Doesn’t that say enough and more about what type of a moron you are?

          For the benefit of the other readers, let me point out that in 1981 Muslims were 7% of the population and in 2011, after 130 years, they became 9.7%. Here are some facts about the Muslim population since 1881.

          The increase is just 2.7%. It would have been much less if not for the drop in population of the Sri Lankan Tamils from 12.7% in 1981 to 11.2% in 2011 for reasons that are well known. Even the Sinhalese population would have been higher if not for migration to the West because of the War. Of course, very few Muslims from Sri Lanka migrate even now

          So, in spite of all these facts, the Muslim population increased by just 2.7% in 130 years. And, here is a guy from the West who visits Sri Lanka as a tourist, who claims that in “30 -40 years the country will call itself an Islamic Republic and Sharia will be imposed in the strictest version, such as it just happened in Brunei.”

          Call him what you like but can you take him seriously at all? These white skinned guys think they are clever and those with dark skin like us can be Fooled all the time.

            Mr. Moo-Handy-Ram obviously does not travel much in Lanka. Maybe you live in some village close to city and have a radius of only a few miles that you venture into?
            Just check out the Eastern Province, which I used to visit in spite of the Tiger troubles. Personally I was never under threat from anyone during my travel. Since late 70s the entire province has changed dramatically in demographic terms. AN absolute explosion is visible numbers of Moslems, dressed in obvious Moslem attire, and explosion in the number of mosques, and obviously the ever present howl of the Moslems call to prayer.
            I have collated photos I have taken and many friends who travel with me have taken all over the Eastern province since mid 70s. They include photos taken in cities, beach areas, villages and all over the country but I focused on the Eastern Province. The hooded horror of head to toe black dress only makes an appearance around 1995. Then they start to explode. Also, the number of obviously Moslem men, children (wearing skull cap), etc. is clearly exploding in the pictures as time goes by. More work is needed and I have reached out to many German and Swiss friends to gather as many photos as possible of such pictures taken all over the country. I would like to publish them in a digital book soon.
            Lankan statistics that are published are utterly flawed. They never provide the details of the database of people, they never provide the statistical methodology, never provide the standard deviation measurement basis, and basically it is nothing other than “we say so, so you better believe” type of statistics.

              What you “see” and relate is more factual than the Statistics Compiled by thousands of Government Officials who visit houses and physically verify the people. Do you realise that you are INSULTING the Entire Sri Lankan Officials, most of whom are Sinhalese?

              Are you from Australia and a friend of the white Racist Terrorist Brenton Tarrant? Are you taking pictures to stage a similar Terror attack in a Mosque in the East Sri Lanka?

                Mr. Moo-Handy-Ram,

                I have a treasure trove of pictures and videos taken in beautiful Lanka which I will archive for the future generations. There are millions of such pictures, videos that are aging in Europe and its the heritage of this wonderful land of tranquility which must be preserved. In a way this lands belongs to all humanity that loves the Sinhalse Buddhist culture on which the country is built. Our memories of this enchanting land must be preserved for posterity, even after the likely apocalypse of Moslem domination and Sharia destroys it. I will point my finger at every single European who ever visited this land if they do not do something to preserve its heritage. The whole country should be declared a sanctuary for lovers of its culture and one more mosque should be built anywhere. Say no more to Moslem desecration of this land.

                Meanwhile Moo-Handy can let his imagination run wild. Did you ever see the ISIS beheading of innocents, massacre of Yazdis, massacre of French civilians and feel that Moslems would do the same in Lanka? Why not add that to your imagination? After all Moslem terror is more than 99% of all terror in the world.

                Lankan statisticians have to tell us how they conducted their data gathering, simulations, assumptions made, exact process they used to do the calculations. I have data scientists who can help, if they need. But just don’t publish numbers and ask people to believe them. Corrupt politicians are probably manipulating these numbers, interested parties may be influencing statisticians, anything is possible. I can send my contact info to CT if they can be the middle man for that. Let’s get to the bottom of the numbers and predict the demographic future of Lanka.

                  Where did you learn to write Absolute Poppycock Ole Fella?

                  If your concern for Sri Lanka’s Sinhala Buddhist culture is Real, do you know the problem Sri Lanka has been facing in the last few years with the UNHCR, thanks to your white friends in the West who have been heavily influenced by the Tamil Diaspora? Shouldn’t you be spending your time to persuade your Western friends to lay off Sri Lanka instead of chasing myths about Muslims in Sri Lanka?

                  I have already proved that in 130 years from 1881, the Muslim population in this country grew just 2.7 % from 7% to 9.7%. No need to waste any time on your Idiotic, Ridiculous and Baseless claim that Muslims will become a majority in 30 to 40 years from now.

                  As for your demand that, “Lankan statisticians have to tell us how they conducted their data gathering, simulations, assumptions made, exact process they used to do the calculations.”, just who the Hell are you, you rotten busybody?

                  However, let me remind you that the population census from 1881 till 1946 was carried out by the British and during that 65 year period, Muslim population in fact dropped from 7.17% to 6.56%!. Now, do you want to say that the British did not know how to count from 1 to 10?

                  Another of your Baseless Claptrap is your comical claim that, “Moslem terror is more than 99% of all terror in the world”.

                  Obviously, Facts don’t interest you, but let me just quote from an article in the Guardian:

                  “white and rightwing terrorists carried out nearly twice as many terrorist attacks as Muslim extremists between 2008 and 2016.”

                  I suspect that either you are a hardcore Islamophobe or a cheap coolie for terror spy networks like the Mossad.

          The ‘gap’ between the Buddhist and Muslim populations for every Census year since 1881 is as follows.
          Year : Gap (Mns)
          1881 : 1.5
          1891 : 1.7
          1901 : 1.9
          1911 : 2.2
          1921 : 2.5
          1931 : 2.9
          1946 : 3.9
          1953 : 4.7
          1963 : 6.3
          1971 : 7.6
          1981 : 9.2
          2001 : 10.9
          2012 : 12.3

          If the ‘gap’ is widening steadily and consistently, is there any reason to believe that the Muslim population will equal or exceed the Buddhist population in the near or distant future ?

    Mr. Lakmal Harischandra,

    A valiant attempt on your part to throw light on the sad and depressing state of affairs in the country.

    Let us all agree – we are a racist bunch of people and super ignorant on top of that.

    We attacked the burghers and drove them to far away Australia.
    We attacked the Tamils and got them scattered all over the world.
    We attacked the Christians – accused them of converting people into Christianity
    We are attacking Muslims with false accusations and driving them away.

    Soon we are going to run out of people to attack and discriminate against.

    The remaining people will turn against each other and destroy themselves.

    You don’t have to wait for the next tsunami to destroy Sri Lanka – the racists among us will take care of that.

    Then we can start all over again with Mahavamsa-2.0

      What is now Malaysia and Indonesia were majority Hindu countries only a few centuries ago. Maldives had a fair population of Buddhists,
      Hindus and Christians only a few decades ago. The Eastern Province and the Batticaloa District were Tamil majority only a few years ago. This surreptitious Make-the-world-Islamic majority is now in full swing. It is said the Saudi Wahabists have allocated US$250 billion to realise this “Urgent” objective. Europe has become aware of it. Brussels is under threat and so is Paris. London/UK has a Muslim Mayor. Let us remember, just before WW1 the entire world was about to fall to the Islamic Ottoman Empire. Moslem Turkey and Iran are asserting themselves again – in different ways lead by the Saudis.

      I am not preaching against Moslems. But this is the reality.

    During the new year all Sinhalese shops are closed so where else other than moor establishments do people buy their essentials.
    That being said I notice that Muslim eateries are now not serving beef . Upon questioning they responded that the Sinhalese take offense on such. Is this a direct response to the Muslim not eating at places pork is served or well for that matter all meats?
    At the end of the day someone loses out somewhere, if there is no cooperation and rational behaviour by all communities.
    Further I cannot comprehend a Sinhalese establishment not serving pork.

    Robert Knox did not talk about a Tamil New Year at the same time. There were no Indian Colonial Parasites in our country then. These Parasites arrived after the British came.

    Tamils do not celebrate this at this time in Tamil Nadu or out side Tamil Nadu.

    Bengalis celebrate Bakshi Mela like us and with same rituals in Bangladesh and out side Bangladesh.

    So Sinhala new year got much to do with Bakshi Mela (Bak Maha Ulela) than Tamil Himdus the so called New Year at this time.

    These people who are for boycotting Muslim businesses are financed by Indian Colonial Parasites.

    Nanasara was financed by India and Indian Parasites through Norway.

    Let us live in harmony with the Muslims and beware of India and Indian Parasites.

      It is the Tamil New Year. It still celebrated in parts of North India due to their ancient Tamil Dravidian heritage and origin but called by different names. Bengali are predominantly a Dravidian or Dravidian/Mongol or Dravidian/Australoid people , who speak an Indo Aryan language . Many people in SE Asia also celebrate this New Year due to the Tamil Chola empire that ruled these regions and left their influence. Like Amararsiri stated it is a Solar based New year that only Tamils /Dravidians use. The North Indians including the Bengali use the Lunar based system. If this festival is celebrated in parts of North India , it is a remanent of their ancient Dravidian heritage and ancestry , that many North Indian have. What has Robert Knox has got to do with this ,or failed to mention go to do with the Tamil New Year? He was just a common soldier who was writing his observations , when he was imprisoned in the Kandyan Kingdom. He also mentioned that in many parts of the present Anuradhapura and Polonaruwa districts the people spoke Tamil not Sinhalese . You conveniently forgot to mention this. Do not post nonsense and garbage to justify your racist Sinhalese Buddhist Fascism. Good that you identified your self correctly as a ” Dalit”

    We may have to look beyond our shores, to find out where this anti Muslim campaign stems from. It may be the same sources that poisoned minds, which eventually led to the killing of 50 innocent worshippers in Christchurch, that same source that spread hate and false propaganda through FB and social media through well trained trolls, which ended with massacre and rape of the Rohingya, the source perhaps that sells weapons to the Myanmar military, the source that started with the millions of dollars contributed by anti Islamic wealthy American Jews and Evangelicals, toward this campaign of hate, spread through lies, attacks on the religion, their Prophet, and trolls pretending to be Islamic scholars. Let’s face it, BBS was supported and financed by some nations, whose main intent is to chaos in the country, set one against the other, hoping the Muslims will respond in a negative way. Not because they love us. They are taking advantage of ignorance and fear, to turn the majority against the minority.
    Unfortunately those who believe the lies, are too naive, ignorant of facts, and are willing to believe that the toffees given free by Muslim shops cause Sinhala women to be barren, and that the goolly that the Muslim cook put in the food causes Sinhala men to be impotent. That was disproved by our good scientists.
    Sri Lankans beware of those foreigners who come bearing gifts. They are spying on us, they have inserted themselves into our nation and operate through innocent looking institutions and “Houses”, and well organized to spread false information against Muslims, in websites such as this, and social media. These trolls are being paid by certain nations, especially one in the ME (calling themselves the only democracy over there) and have been operating worldwide, even in the US, to deflect, spread lies, attack, and cause chaos. I wish our people were smart enough to not fall for into that trap.

      Well said Navin.

      As for the only democracy in the Middle East, is it not the only demoCRAZY, not just in the Middle East but in the Entire world?

      It owes its creation to the UN but now has the audacity to claim that the UN is Biased Against it! More than half the Resolutions passed by the UNHRC since inception in 2006 were against this only demoCRAZY. None of these Resolutions totaling over 70, have been implemented but the UNHRC spares No pain to implement the Only Resolution passed against Sri Lanka.

      Of course, there are scores of other Resolutions passed by the UN Security Council and the UN General Assembly which this Only demoCRAZY has contemptuously rejected thanks to the unwavering patronage of the Most Powerful democracy in the world, Uncle Sam.

        Uncle Sam has a lot to answer for. It has enabled the war criminals, gives the most aid to it, and arms it. Those arms are used against unarmed civilians, and they know it. Uncle Sam also protects it at the UN vetoing various resolutions that condemn the excessive violence used against those totally helpless. They should rot in Hell for the evil they show through their actions.

          While Uncle Sam provides Invaluable Financial, Military and Political support, the zionist controlled Media also plays an important role shaping favourable opinion about the Only demoCRAZY by either justifying or papering over its Brutalities against the Palestinians while denouncing the Palestinian victims as terrorists.

          Also, the Media almost totally IGNORES the wretched suffering of the Palestinians for over 7 decades living under very harsh conditions because of the Illegal and Brutal Occupation for so long while their tormentors are projected as those who made “the desert bloom” when the desert was blooming long before the Brutal Occupation.

          Our own Sri Lanka which was a strong supporter of the Palestinians, being the first non-Muslim country to sever
          diplomatic relations soon after the 1973 war, has now moved
          quite close to the zionist entity. It wouldn’t be a surprise if most non-Muslims in Sri Lanka support the zionist entity now.

      Navin, you are talking about one killing by a lone deranged gunman and ignoring tens of thousands killed by Moslems fanatics, ISIS, Taliban, Jihadists, sometimes in broad daylight in Europe. And the democracy in the ME that you talk about is the only thing standing between Islamic horror spreading its tentacles permanently in entire Middle East and then to India. That certain ME country has some of the most intelligent and courageous men under the sky right now and they re-elected a man to be their Premier who has immense ability to stand up to terrorism. Don’t belittle that little country. The Sinhalese cannot have a better country than that particular country if they are serious about future safety of their country, to avoid it becoming another Jihadi hellhole.

      Radical Islam has conquered the Eastern part of Lanka and pockets are established all over the country, masquerading as mosques. If you look at the pattern of the mosque locations you can see that they are built more as fortresses than as places of worship. The Lankan Sinhalese and Tamils go about their life ignorant of the war plans of these terrorists who have spent a lot of time with ISIS, Taliban and various other groups drilling and preparing for the future battle. Only reason why they are patient it that by 2030-2040 they can overwhelm Lanka through a parliamentary vote and then go for a full Sharia.

        Compared to the ” tens of thousands killed” by the ISIS, Taliban and the Jihadists, your fellow white Savages from the West led by the US have killed Tens of Millions while maiming and displacing many more millions of Iraqis, Afghans, Libyans and Syrians since 2001. Your Colour-Blinded Eyes CAN’T see that. Your WARPED mind Also CAN’T understand that there will be NO Taliban or ISIS or Jihadists if NOT for the Brutal Wars unleashed and instigated by the white Savages in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria.

        As for your other heroes in the Middle East, the zionist barbarians, what a peaceful place the Middle East would have been if the barbarous zionist entity was NOT foisted in Palestine among the Arabs by the white Savages from the West led by the British Sadists in 1947 by manipulating the UN only to Erase their Crimes against Jews in Germany in particular and Europe in general

        Now, you Wicked Ole White Fella, Don’tell us about the zionist Barbarians. We ALREADY know how they double-crossed us in the 1980s when they sold weapons to us and Trained the LTTE Terrorists not only on how to counter those weapons but also generally h ow to continue their Terror against the Sri Lankan Forces. We won’t be surprised if they are already quite Active in Sri Lanka doing what they are experts at – creating chaos.

    Hi, Moo -Handy – Ram, you are back! Hope you are having a great time.
    Now for some education.
    Think of Lanka in 2050, now a Moslems country, declared an Islamic Republic. Sinhalese leave en masse to other lands, Australia, Canada, and America and establish themselves in those societies and thrive there. All those who cannot leave are converted to Islam at gunpoint. Lanka becomes another Moslems fanatic hellhole, like most of Pakistan, Afghanistan. Civilization ceases for all practical purposes.
    Then many centuries later, descendants of the Sinhalese in the West, now all “western” even in their looks after assimilation and intermarriage, come back to the country at an opportune time, work with the remaining few elements of the original Sinhalese, and resurrect a small Sinhalese land and become independent. Obviously they need support from western powers to withstand and thrive in the new Sinhalese country, established over the ruins of their old civilization. After their western sojourn, they are even wiser, smarter and also know how to defend themselves. The barbaric, fundamentalist, Moslems in future Lanka cannot withstand the power of the new Sinhalese. And there are conflicts all the time.
    My friend that is what happened to historical Jewish land of Israel. Jews were the original settlers there for millenia. Moslems massacred the Jews, in an unbelievable and horrendous apocalypse since Islam was established, and they fled to the West. After holocaust they came back to their land of origin and Israel thrived.
    So don’t distribute all you mumbo jumbo about western powers killing Moslems. No western country has ever fired a shot at Moslems in the post colonial period of last 70 years unless they were provoked. If fanatic Isis, Jihadi crazies look for ultimate union with their god in fight the Western forces seem to have been at times happy to help them out. That should not be mistaken for cruelty.

      What a Vicious, Trouble Maker you are with a Diabolically Wild Imagination. If you think that you can fool the Sinhalese with such intensely crazed fiction, you are wildly mistaken, ole madcap.

      You continue with your hogwash with the Insanely Ridiculous narration about the treatment of Jews by the Muslims. I will just quote from Wikpedia

      “During waves of persecution in Medieval Europe, many Jews found refuge in Muslim lands.[2] For instance, Jews expelled from the Iberian Peninsula were invited to settle in various parts of the Ottoman Empire, where they would often form a prosperous model minority of merchants acting as intermediaries for their Muslim rulers.”

      And your following hogwash is so blatant, that it doesn’t warrant any reply as Sri Lankans know fully well how Iraq and Afghanistan were invaded and Brutalised.

      ” No western country has ever fired a shot at Moslems in the post colonial period of last 70 years unless they were provoked.”

      Ole Fella, I have come across many who make wild claims but you beat them all with considerable ease. I think I should IGNORE you Unless it becomes absolutely necessary. Get Lost you demented Ole Fella.

      Got to give you some credit, man. You think years ahead and clearly.
      The doomsday scenario might well arrive before 2050. With the Maldives and Pakistan close by just in case, the masterminds of global Islam will do all they can, firstly, to either destroy or weaken majority Hindu India. In your vision you either forgot – or you are such an anti-Indian – you deliberately avoided to point out lakhs of Sinhalese would have sought refuge in nearby India to escape the
      Islamic menace.

      Don’t worry. The Tamils in the diaspora will not return in the way you
      picture the Sinhalese returning. By then bigger events would have
      overtaken the world – including partial annihilation by nuclear warfare – and Tamils will regain their traditional homelands. The Sinhalese would have secured theirs they inhabited after the advent of that debaucherous Vijaya. Sinhala and Sinhalese will survive.
      Tamilnadu would have become the most developed and prosperous State after Maharashtra.

There needs to be a lot of inter breeding with peoples with dissimilar but strong genes, and that can happen easier in a western location. Sinhalese have to adopt an ubermensch mentality and align with anti-Jihadi forces, which are bound to emerge from the West. The current western wishy washy mentality and docility towards Islam will not last long. Already major rumblings are happening after the Trump win in the US and starting to reverberate in Europe.

        By the way I have absolutely nothing against Tamils of Lanka. They are the most innocent, helpful, friendly people I have ever seen in my travels. However, they are different from the Sinhalese though, and clearly lack the cultural roots that bind them together the way the Mahavamsa mentality, Buddhist monkhood, and ancient legends nurse the Sinhalese. Its a shame that some Sinhalese feel animosity towards the innocent Tamils any more. They should absolutely bury the hatchet, now that Tigers are gone, and come together. The real danger in Islamic terror, and this terror unleashed in explosive population growth now and will lead to real kinetic warfare once the Moslem numbers overwhelm Lanka.

    Mu-Handy-Ram has begun to unravel and come apart! When a party to a debate starts calling the other names, start talking about leaving the forum, ignoring the other, the unbiased reader should know how the discussion is going.
    The reason why the Jews mentioned by Mu were able to get Ottoman refuge was because the Moslems had the advancing European merchants to deal with, who found a way around Africa to get to the East. They saw that temporarily the Jews can be used as a bulwark against Christians, and as soon as that phase was over the pogrom against Jews started with added venom.
    Let’s look at the on-going situation in the Middle East. Let’s just look at what is going on today.
    Twice in recent days, Palestinian Authority (PA) religious leaders have openly called for the genocide of Jews. Broadcast on official PA television, two preachers called for the murder of Jews until the Jewish people are annihilated. Both presented the killing of Jews, not merely as the will of Allah, but also as a necessary stage in history that should now be carried out. To
    support these mandatory killings, both cited the same Hadith, an Islamic tradition attributed to Mohammed, expressing AllahÕs will. The words of the cited Hadith are as follows: ÒThe Hour [of Resurrection] will not take place until the Muslims fight the Jews, and kill them. And the Jews will hide behind the rock and tree, and the rock and tree will say: Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, this is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!Ó Numerous times in recent years Palestinian ÒpreachersÓ and academics have taught publicly that this particular Hadith applies today.

        Native Vedda, if you are a real Vedda and an aborigine, I would be very interested to know if you have anything autochthonous to share with us. Lankan Vedda makes for a very interesting group that needs a lot of research.

        As for your question, please go back on the comment trail above and you will see why I am talking about PA, etc. We have a mediocrite of very low cerebral capacity calling himself Mu-Handy- Ram who just hurls invectives when I bring up any valid points.

        No. He is a Cold Blooded Mossad agent trying to incite the Sinhala Buddhists in Sri Lanka against Muslims by coming out with Blatant Lies and Diabolical Fabrications.

          Try regular visitor to Lanka, trying to warn the docile Sinhalese about the doomsday scenario unfolding slowly in the country so that they can still fight back against the forces of evil and darkness coming from radical, Jihadi, Moslems fanatics of Lanka, who want to turn the country into a Moslem majority Islamic Republic and convert or enslave everyone else. By now the intelligent readers should realize that Mossad mumbo jumbo is Mu’s only answer (beside calling names) to any point I raise.

          I wear as a badge of honor the personal attacks from Mu because only mental bankruptcy and ill will can lead to anyone to use invectives against another person without debating the subject.
