Thowheed Jama’ath Condemns Wijeyadasa’s Inflammatory Speech, Responds To All Allegations Against Muslims

Sri Lanka Thowheed Jama’ath (SLTJ) organisation has today condemned the statement made in Parliament by the Minister of Justice Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe about the Muslim community. They have also responded to the allegations levelled against the Muslims by the minister.

We publish below the statement issued by Sri Lanka Thowheed Jama’ath by in full:

Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe - Minster of Justice

Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe – Minster of Justice

On last 18.11.2016, Hon. Minister of Justice, Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe addressed in parliament about the steps that the government of Sri Lanka has taken with regard to restraining the racialist activities in Sri Lanka. While accepting the minister’s views about taking severe legal action against those who involve and sow the racism in the country, we totally find fault on the knot that the minister has made between terrorism and Islamic organizations together with religious education institutes.

ISIS terrorists must be eradicated

Hon. Minister recorded a view point that 32 members of 4 Muslim families from Sri Lanka have gone to Syria to join the international terrorist movement, ISIS and the Sri Lankan people are much frightened with regard to it. Indeed, for the first time, the said view that some Jihad groups functioning in Sri Lanka have connection with ISIS is a point that was spread in Sri Lanka in the previous government.

However, the then Defence Secretary refused this opinion and issued a denial report in public saying that it is not only the wrong statement but also Sri Lanka has not got such an organization. Even when if it was later confirmed that a few members of a single family from Sri Lanka have gone to Syria to attach ISIS, the whole Muslims living in Sri Lanka and the total Islamic religious and civil organizations together fervently condemned this activity and had declared that ISIS was a vulgar terrorist organization and their entire agenda were un-Islamic. All the Muslims in person and with their organizations strongly said in their statements and reports that the activities of ISIS had no a minute connection with Islam and the entire Muslims in Sri Lanka were unsupportive to any form of terrorism.

No any Muslims in Sri Lanka agree with terrorism or terrorist activities. Thowheed Jama’ath, on behalf of all the Muslims in Sri Lanka, request the government of Sri Lanka to take necessary measures to immediately arrest any individual person or an organization if they keep link with any terrorist organization in Sri Lanka or outside the country.

When the situation is in such a condition, a matter that was wrongly spread a long ago against a particular community in the country and the proper answer was also given at the same time by the same community individually and organizationally, how a responsible Minister, all of a sudden, superficially without looking at the people, place, time and the situation can reveal such a statement in Parliament when the racist waves are intentionally being raised in the country against Muslims. This would definitely increase the density of the problem and fearing in all societies rather than reducing. We therefore would like to bring this matter to the utmost consideration of the Minister that tying all Muslims and Islamic organizations with terrorism will sharpen the volume of the issue between multicultural communities in our mother land.

Are Muslims brainwashed for terrorism in Islamic Religious Schools?

In Hon. Minister’s speech, he accused that the foreign Islamic scholars who come to Islamic international schools in Sri Lanka are teaching terrorist views to Muslim students in order to wash their brains towards terrorism. This false accusation was also spread in Sri Lanka by some racist movements in the majority community of the country in the ex-president Mahinda Rajapaksa’s regime and the Muslims community and its organizations clearly answered to this allegation at the time of its arrival.

If such incidents are occurred in Muslims educational institutes as per the statement of the Hon. Minister, we earnestly request the Minister to take necessary action against such Islamic schools on the basis of the proper evidence and proofs.

These allegations have been put forwarded in Sri Lanka as rumours since the year 2012 without giving any single proof. A racist or a racist movement can spread a false message of this nature, but it is unfortunate that an Hon. Minister of Justice being in a very accountable position expresses such a fake statement through his tongue which is fiercely pricking the hearts and minds of helpless Muslim community of this mother Lanka. We undoubtedly consider that this statement would have created a flawed sight in the mind of other religious followers with regard to Muslims’ educational institutes.

We are very much sad to mention herewith that it is unfortunate, that the Minister’s notions about Muslims’ educational institutes are like pouring kerosene in the flaming fire of racism in Sri Lanka at the movement.

Are there fightings of religious sects among Muslims only?

Another viewpoint that the Hon. Minister has put forwarded is that Muslims are fighting among themselves with divisions of religious thoughts and views. It is natural that there are different kinds of religious sects with various opinions and views within a major religion. Such divisions are irreparable in any religion in the world. Muslims are not exceptional to it. Like Theravada and Mahayana among Buddhists, Roman Catholic and Protestant among Christians, Brahmin and Sutra among Hindus, Muslims are also divided with different kinds of sects and groups with different views and opinions. Though, Islam does not allow these divisions among Muslims. Due to misunderstanding of certain things, Muslims are divided themselves.

However, the Minister’s talk has created a notion among the general public that the Muslims only have such divisions and group fighting among their religious sects. When it is connotatively said, together with the erroneous views that the Muslims’ educational institutes are teaching Jihad motivated syllabi for Muslim students to join ISIS and Muslims are fighting among themselves creating disharmony to the nation, these opinions of the Minister would certainly make an awful remarks say Muslims are terrifying people and they are needless to this nation as said some racist movements.

Is the General Secretary of Sri Lanka Thowheed Jama’ath, Abdur Razick remanded for insulting Buddha?

As the Minister has revealed the above misinformation which would be able to cause a misunderstanding code among other religious people about Sri Lankan Muslims, he also has said the arrest and remand of the General Secretary of Thowheed Jama’ath was on the basis of the reason that he had said “Buddha ate human flesh”. While talking about taking action against the Buddhist – Muslim extremism, Hon. Minister joined and knotted the General Secretary of Thowheed Jama’ath with extremism.

We would like to remark here that this expression of the Hon. Minister’s is too being incorrectly portrayed by the people. We never accept the descriptive wording of the Hon. Minister looping Thowheed Jama’ath with extremism. This is because of the fact that Thowheed Jama’ath never talked about using harsh extremist words like beating, cutting, attacking or killing towards any majority or minority religious individuals or groups of the country at any movement.

Whenever some members of specific racist organizations described Islam, Al-Quran and Muslims wrongly, Thowheed Jama’ath always faced them with democratically accepted ways and means of expressions so far. It is true that the racist movements are up to this minute, expressing heartburning phrases damaging our religious belief, threatening us that they are preparing to kill us in the forthcoming days, and startling to demolish our properties. But Thowheed Jama’ath would like to strongly emphasise that we have never involved such extremist activities up to the date in the country.

In the same way, the Minister has said that the reason for the arrest and the remand of the General Secretary of Thowheed Jama’ath was due to insulting Buddha. This view of the Hon. Minister is false because there has been already a court case on trial for several months without verdict whether the Secretary has insulted the Buddha or not. The court has not yet judged that the Secretary has involved in insulting a religion. Showing a pending court case without verdict and describing it as the cause for the arrest and remand of the Secretary is untruthful and sowing unnecessary viewpoints in the mind of the ordinary people.

We would like to bring this matter to the Hon. Minister’s notice that court has not accounted for the cause of arrest and remand of General Secretary as the reason that the Minister has expressed.

Justice should be erected against racism

Although the Parliamentary speech of the Hon. Minister of Justice began as the views against those who reveal racism, it is vividly clear that the all knotted things with terrorism in the middle are oriented with Muslims and Islamic organizations.

At this critical point, it is true to say that the viewpoints of this nature would absolutely produce huge vibrations in the general public of the country where racist opinions are continuously disseminated in social and other media. We and the all Muslims of this nation are fearful whether the views stated in the Minister’s conversation would pay the way for the racist who have been thirsty for the past few years to make divisions among the multi-ethnic diversities through ethnic riots, extend opportunities for foreign powers who are very much ambitious to induce local turmoil that provides them profits, and give provender for those who are wandering with power hunger politicizing everything in the country to protect their seats in Parliament and come into power from the back door.

We therefore earnestly request the Hon. Minister to publicize true information and views without providing opportunities for such turncoats.

Muslims are not third class citizen of this country. We are aboriginal citizens of this nation. Our and our forefathers’ umbilical cords were buried in this land. The contribution of Muslims to this country in relation to the growth, development and co-existence are equal in accordance with the percentage of the Muslim population and it cannot be underestimated in any way. For the past three war-prevailed decades, Muslims of this country suffered a lot and being chased away from their native place as they severely opposed terrorism and separatism. So far they wander here and there as refugees without being resettled. Thowheed Jama’ath would like to further elucidate the fact on behalf of the Muslims very clearly that Sri Lankan Muslims so far in the history of the nation did not make any attempt to separate the country. We have been always peace loving people of this mother Lanka. We love this country very much as it is our flesh and blood.

        Do not blame these Sinhala Buddhist racists for their behaviour in targeting Muslims. They are doing exactly what the Muslim racists are doing in Muslim countries, where murder and ethnic cleansing and destruction of places of worship of non Muslims are taking place regularly. Last week the Christian mayor of Jakarta was charged for Blasphemy. Two weeks ago in Bangladesh, Hindus were targeted and their properties destroyed by Islamic mobs incited by a minister in the government, for allegedly posting something against Islam. In Muslim countries not even constructive criticism could be made about Islam or Muslims without being taken to task. According to this standard what the secretary of this organization said about Buddhism amounts to blasphemy which needs arrest and punishment, which the government should have done at the first instance rather than waiting for the problem to worsen with BBS priest making a public ultimatum. You cannot talk of any double standards in Srilanka between Buddhists and Muslims when you do not utter a word about double standards made in Muslim countries between Muslims and non-Muslims.

          This issue is about the situation in Sri Lanka. Many Muslim organizations worldwide ( including Sri Lankan) have spoken loud and clear about these issues in other Muslim countries. You cant expect the whole community to stand up everytime some joker or body bearing a Muslim name does something stupid.
          How loud were you when tigers were wrecking havoc on all others. You were tucking your tail between your legs.

            Please do not be a coward and express your views in your true name. What I am pointing out is that given the opportunity, Muslim racists in Srilanka will behave the same way as Muslim racists in Muslim countries. You are a typical Muslim racist who not only hide the atrocities committed by Muslims to non-Muslims but also a bigot who cannot tolerate constructive criticism about Islam and Muslims. You say that many Muslim organisations have spoken loud and clear about the issues in Muslim countries and therefore no one should raise these issues. Similarly many Sinhalese organisations have spoken loud and clear about issues of racism and violence in Srilanka, and therefore why are the Muslims in Srilanka harping about it. Is this not a good example of double standards.

          1. “You cannot talk of any double standards in Srilanka between Buddhists and Muslims when you do not utter a word about double standards made in Muslim countries between Muslims and non-Muslims.”

          When another country has double standards, does it mean that Sri Lanka also needs to emulate those double standards? No.

          They are Sri Lankan Citizens, and the Law must be equally applied equally. Sri Lank did that do that when South Africa was practicing Apartheid.

          2. ” According to this standard what the secretary of this organization said about Buddhism amounts to blasphemy which needs arrest and punishment, which the government should have done at the first instance rather than waiting for the problem to worsen with BBS priest making a public ultimatum.”

          Yes, Agree. Unfortunately we have a law and order breakdown,and it has confused the police as well as to what to do due to political interference.

          The best examples are the crooks and killers who were released by the independent commissions, and judiciary be die to action by the Turncoat, Traitor, Gon Mala-Perthaya getting paid, Santghosams, by the crooks.

      Sri Lanka Thowheed Jama’ath (SLTJ) organisation,

      We know that Wijedasa Rajapaksa is a clone of Gotabaya and Mahinda and they want to disrupt the Investigations. They are behind the recent protests and the other calamities.

      However, the stupidity of Sri Lanka Thowheed Jama’ath (SLTJ) organisation is not second to those of the Sinhala “Buddhists.”

      Anyway, is stupidity a Virtue for the Sri Lanka Thowheed Jama’ath (SLTJ) organisation? At least you have some company with BBS, in this area. Is there any validity to the rumor floating in the vines that SLTJ follows the Satan, and BBS follows Mara?

      “What a bloody mess!”

      The Trio, Gotabaya, Wihedasa and Sirisena are Crooks and crominals.

      Sirisena is a Turncoat, Traitor, Gona, and Mala-Perethaya. Look at the ecidence.

      Don’t forget Wijedasa is openly acting as a double dealing cutthroat not without reason: Wijedasa is a shameless faceless minister under the government of good governance who openly said , ‘as long as I am the minister I shall not permit Gotabaya to be arrested’ despite the fact Gotabaya is facing a number of grave criminal charges , and even after the very government of good governance to which he belongs had promised to arrest and punish every crook and criminal irrespective of their status or rank. Incidentally, Gotabaya is still not arrested.

      It is a pertinent question , why is the wheeler dealer millionaire Wijedasa still clinging on to the present government as a minister without any shame when the government is also asking for aid with a begging bowl from International monetary Organizations? What we can therefore deduce from the meaningless ‘destitution ‘ insults hurled by Wijedasa is , this minister is either unhinged or totally ignorant or he is an imbecile , for he cannot understand what his own mouth is blabbering . In any event , it is better to be a destitute person than to be an opportunistic wheeler dealer gnawing at the very root of the country’s dwindling economy to selfishly fatten himself. Certainly , LeN prefers its own honest life style even in poverty to Wijedasa’s wheeler dealer prosperity , as we wish to make it abundantly clear ,

      Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe – Minster of Justice

      RE: Thowheed Jama’ath Condemns Wijeyadasa’s Inflammatory Speech, Responds To All Allegations Against Muslims,

      We all know that you are a cronie of Mahinda Rajapaksa, Gotabaya Rajapaksa and other crooks and killers. You are trying to protect them from prosecution.

      You are naked. Your marbles are jutting out. Your Mahinda Rajapaksa and Gotabaya Rajapaksa provided underpants are not holding your marbles. …and that antiquated ‘story’ had been passed to him by Gotabaya (the devil incarnate).

      Your New strategy, in Cahoots with the Rajapaksa criminals is to:

      1. Create animosity between the Muslims and the current state, saying that they are not being protected by the BBS Terrorists and their goons who are being used by the Rajapaksa, so that the Muslims will not support this Yahapalanaya Govt.

      2. Towards, this, a lot of activities are going on, including the recruitment of some Muslim Mahinda Rajapaksa supporters, Recruitment of Thowheed Jama’ath, Protests against the reformation of MMDA, ise of Nil Balakaya Members to join hands with BBS to create unrest, cause riots with Muslims, and reduce the support the Yahapalanaya is getting from Muslims.

      3. Create trouble in the North using the Group that Gotabaya established.

      You are exposed. The people know that.

      The question is to what extent is Your Plan,hatched with Gotabaya and Mahinda successful? You certainly will get many Muslim Fools and Sinhala Buddhist Fools, given that the national average IQ is 79, but you are likely to run out of Fools, Modayas.

      Yes, you are exposed. See below.

    Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe – Minster of Justice,

    “No any Muslims in Sri Lanka agree with terrorism or terrorist activities. Thowheed Jama’ath, on behalf of all the Muslims in Sri Lanka, request the government of Sri Lanka to take necessary measures to immediately arrest any individual person or an organization if they keep link with any terrorist organization in Sri Lanka or outside the country.”

    You need to address the issues raised by Sri Lanka Thowheed Jama’ath (SLTJ) organisation. Are they factual or not?

    Amarsairi does not agree with the Myths of Sri Lanka Thowheed Jama’ath (SLTJ) including unsupported comments on Buddha, claims that man came of Adam, and that the the Theory of Evolution is incorrect, that has been proved to be correct with data. However, each claim has to be taken on its own merit.

    We know that you, Wijeyadasa Rajapaksh, are are a cronie of Mahinda Rajapaksa. We also know that you are in cahoots with the crooks and killers of Mahinda Rajapaksa, Gotabaya Rajapaksa and their cronies in crisis, and that you were facilitating the disruption of the good work of the independent commissions and the judiciary.

    Despite the allegations with support that The Sri Lanka Thowheed Jama’ath (SLTJ) are colones of the Wahhabis, Salafis and their offshoots, does not give you the right to lie and the use a wide brush to paint All Sri Lankan Muslims as ISIS Terrorists, who follow the Devil, Satan, Iblis. Mislima are the primary victims of ISIS and it’s clones.

    There is an other Terrorist Organization on Sri Lanka. It is called BBS. Iy comprises Pata-Sinhala “Buddhists”, and is an insult to Siddhartha Gautama, Buddha, and the few Sinhala Buddhists who respect and follow the Philosophy, Love of Wisdom, of Buddha.

    Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe – Minster of Justice, you are a shame even to Mara and MaRa.

      What is the meaning of the word ‘Theory’ as in ‘Theory of evolution’. But in the same breath you claim that this is has now been proven to be ‘factually correct’. Then how can you still refer to it as the ‘Theory’. Makes no sense.

      All Muslims are non-violent when it comes to practice of their religion. You will see it in the way they conduct their prayers. There is no aggression. Peaceful and serene. However there may be a few violent individuals who get ‘pissed off’ at the slightest provocation, who still identify themselves with Muslims. Certainly they are in the fringe and do not not represent the majority of Muslims living peacefully alongside people of competing Abrahamic faiths, throughout the modern world. Nor do they do justice to the teachings of Islam, Wahabism and Sufism included.

      I wish you would do more research to discover fresh facts before coming to conclusions, as you repeatedly claim the same old ‘broken record’ approach to claim your point. A point which has lost its lustre, several topics before. What a waste of talent.

    Glad you responded. However I note with dismay you have failed to show this response to a mature and learned member of community/society to at least ensure you get your English right. Am sorry but this matters and a lot! Otherwise you risk being taken for the same joke the countrymen have taken you for all this time.

    Your “knowledge” of Islam is merely not enough to clamor on high street! Sri Lanka has never had a bunch of adrenaline monsters as you lot and naturally, your rise to the limelight while condemning the traditional guard of the Muslim society all the way through does leave the non muslims wondering now what on earth is going on! Your lavish spending of Saudi funding is more like political campaigns and a different and more appropriate approach ought to have been adopted in introducing yourselves as the “new speakers” of the community.

    Having fairly advised you, I still feel you need to work with the Jamiyyathul Ulama and now arrogantly bypass them. This arrogance while denying you paradise will leave every Muslim here open to a thrashing!

        the most dangerous PERPETRATORS when they are still
        threatening ? Large majority of Muslims don’t agree
        with SLTJ interpretation of Islam and I am one of
        them but it is BBS that works to keep them on the
        scene so that they can survive with their antics .
        THERE IS DIRTY POLITICS BEHIND ALL THIS !

      RE:SLTJ Thy follow Satan, Iblis,and the Wahhabies, Sa;afirs and their Clones

      “Who gave you permission to speak on behalf of Muslims of Sri Lanka? you have no right to talk on the issue as there is no issues at all. For your high handed activities, the entire Sri Lankan Muslims are facing unnecessary problems.”

      Tauhid are they Muslims?

      Why not call them Iblisis, to distinguish from Muslims.

      After All ISIS is called Daesh even by the Wahhabis who initially supported them.

      So, Prophet Karl Marx was right, and Prophetic. “Religion is the Opium of the People.” Did he get a Revelation, or did he reason it out?

        SLTJ are lunatic, frog in the well.

        Do you know Tauheed means, Monotheism which means to Believe in Only One, our Creator Almighty Allaah by obeying His Divine Laws.

        Whoever who are humble and submit their will to God Almighty and not transgress their limit, that is to follow a middle path, which is the best way. In that a Muslim should act behave responsibly for the betterment and well being of the entire society for which acts he or she will be rewarded by Almighty Creator. Arrogance, Pride, high handed acts, causing hardship to the people, causing destruction, evil conspiracies are all liable for Divine Punishment.
        Therefore, every Muslims who fear their Lord, will act responsibly will not transgressed the limit. This is the yardstick to measure who is a true Muslim and who is a duplicate, number plate Muslim, who acts irresponsibly. FYI Daesh/isis/any other outfit who transgress the limit are automatically out of Islam. Our Lord The Almighty Creator says in the Quraan:-

        “Whoever kills a person [unjustly]…it is as though he has killed all mankind. And whoever saves a life, it is as though he had saved all mankind.” (Qur’an, 5:32)
        This holy verse clearly declare ISIS/Alqaeda/LTTE, all suicide bombers who kill innocent people as transgressors. So there is no room to call them as Muslims.

          “Do you know Tauheed means, Monotheism which means to Believe in Only One”

          Yes, I know, Believe in Only One. The So-called Tauhidis are believe in Only One Iblis, who has misled them. They are clones of Wahhabis, Salafis and their clones such as ISIS, and many others. It goes back to Abdul Wahhab and to Ibn Taymiah, who were All deceived and misguided by Iblis, Satan, Devil, when he saw an opportunity after the Mongol Invasion and sack of Baghdad.

          Why?

          Because of the Ego of Iblis, Satan and he too does believe in Tauhid.

          So, the Wahhabis, Salafis, Tauhidis, ISIS etc., called, Iblisis, will concentrate on killing Muslims, because they pray and believe in the Oneness of God, Allah, and now and then others who are not Iblisis and Muslims. Prophet Mohamed warned about them, called Najdis, from East of Medina, in the Hadith of Najd.

          References:

          1. Hadith of Najd

          The Hadith of Najd is a famous hadith with several chains of narration about three geographical locations. While all Sunni Muslims accept the group of hadith as authentic, the exact location of the area referred to as “Najd” is disputed.

          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hadith_of_Najd

          2. Iblis, Devil (Islam)

          Iblis was a Jinni, a creature made of “smokeless fire” by God, while like humans are made of “clay.” In an outburst rooted in envy, Iblis disobeyed Allah and was expelled from divine grace. He also lured Adam and Eve into eating fruit from the forbidden tree. He was condemned by Allah (God) to Jahannam, or Hell.

          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devil_(Islam)

          3. Wahhabi sack of Karbala

          The Wahhabi sack of Karbala occurred on 21 April 1802 (1216 Hijri) (1801[1]), under the rule of Abdul-Aziz bin Muhammad the second ruler of the First Saudi State. Approximately 12,000 Wahhabis from Najd attacked the city of Karbala.[4]:387 The attack coincided with the anniversary of Ghadir Khum event,[3] or 10th Muharram.[2]:74

          Wahhabis killed 2,000[2]:74–5,000[3] of the inhabitants and plundered the tomb of Husayn ibn Ali, grandson of Muhammad and son of Ali ibn Abi Talib,[2]:74 and destroyed its dome, seizing a large quantity of spoils, including gold, Persian carpets, money, pearls, and guns that had accumulated in the tomb, most of them donations. The attack lasted for eight hours, after which the Wahhabis left the city with more than 4,000 camels carrying their plunder.[5]

          Published on Dec 5, 2014
          To all the doubters who still think Najd is in Iraq and not in Saudi Arabia.

          You noticed in this video that I quoted from scholars, Muslim geographers such as ibn Kurdadhbah, ibn Hawqal and even ibn Taymiyyah to leave you with no doubt that Najd is an area in modern day Saudi Arabia. Here I will once again quote ibn Taymiyyah so your mind will be at rest on this issue.

          Shaykh ibn Taymiyyah said in commentary of the hadeeth (where the sun rises) in Musnad Ahmad vol. 5, pp. 372-373 which is graded as authentic (QUOTE): “directly east of the city of the Prophet (p) is where Musaylimah the Liar came from – this one who claimed prophethood after the death of the Prophet (p) – and many people followed him. He was fought by Abu Bakr as-Siddiq” (Al-Jawab us-Sahih li-man Baddala din al-Masih, vol. 6, pp. 127-128). Musaylimah came from Al-Yamaamah and as I showed you in this video, that is located within Najd. This proves that Shaykh ibn Taymiyyah UNDERSTOOD Najd to be within the Arabian Peninsula, (modern day Saudi Arabia) and not in Iraq.

          HISTORICAL FACT: all the scholars who lived before the time of Muhammad ibn Abdil-Wahaab who had the title “An-Najdi” attached to their last names, in every case it was always understood that each of those scholars came from Arabia. No scholar who came from Iraq ever had the title “An-Najdi” attached to his last name.

          Now my brief refutation of the claim and evidences used to suggest Najd is in IRAQ.

    This is not a reply or in response to what SLTJ has said, done or doing.

    WARNING: To all MUSLIM Brothers, Sisters and our minorities.

    I just had a word from those leading our security intelligence apparatus, counter terrorism task force and government defense advises that all this militant activity is to provoke the Muslims to act in defiance and with violence against the “Saffron Robe Terror” unleashed by a few rogue Buddhist monks. This is bait to target the Muslims (and other minorities as well), their sacred places of worship, community centers, educational institutions, businesses and their livelihoods.
    Be prepared to identify trouble and report activities to your local Police, civic organizations, professional legal counsel and journalists for civil liberties before this gets out of hand like the 83′ Black Friday riots or pogroms. The Saffron Robe TERRORISM has no place here in Sri Lanka. To eliminate this gangrene, several under cover task forces have been assembled to strike with lethal force. Our countrymen must have patience, tolerance and grin and bare the pain for a little longer until we wipe this extremist scourge for good whether this violent extremism originates from those hiding behind saffron robe or burka with international forces at play. I remind everyone that UNITY is STRENGTH! DO NOT fall victim to pranksters!

            //”There is a difference here. Muslims go round the Kaaba but do not worship the “rock”.”//

            Thanks. So it is tradition to go around the Kaaba, not worship?

            But Buddha did not want Buddha, his Images or Trees to be worshipped.This was a tradition during Buddhas lifetime. It came after Buddha.

            So, what the the Sinhala Buddhists are doing is not Buddhism. What is it?

            It is called Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhism”.

            Q1. Can you tell me why the Muslims go around the Kabba, Rock, 7 times only, not 6 , not 8?

            Q2. Can you tell me why the Muslims do the Haj only during 5 days of the Year only? The other 360 days are not Haj , but Umra,the lesser pilgrimage? What is is basis fr the above?

            go around the Kabba, Rock, 7 times only, not 6 , not 8?

              Amarasiri , I too wanted to take on jamal but you
              took that off me . You have asked Jamal a couple
              of questions for which you can easily find answer
              on the net . But to believe these answers you
              need to BELIEVE whole heartedly in the whole
              system. That is why you call it “faith.” With
              modern society acquiring knowledge at rocket speed,
              BELIEVING and doing this without question ,has
              become a challenge to one’s common sense and all
              RELIGIONS are today equally facing mammoth task of
              finding provable answers.
              Many Muslims think that five times prayer is the
              only form of worship. Act of worship is not limited
              to prayers . Act of five times prayers falls under
              five obligations and one of which is Haj which
              includes UMRAH. Going round the KAABA had been an
              Arab ritual long before Islam was established by
              prophet Muhammad and this era was clearly described
              by the prophet himself as the era of ignorance !
              For people of intelligence , the prophet himself
              said “CHOOSE THE MIDDLE PATH.” Because he knew.
              what he founded ! What is middle path ? Not too
              slow and not too fast !

        cholan,

        you are a notorious Muslim hater with a poison mind. Thank God Almighty we Muslims do not worship idols, burn the widows in the funeral pyre of their dead husband, shamelessly demanding dowries at the time of marriage, by demanding alimony from the bride and live on bride[s wealth, shitting and urinating on the pathways, smelly toilets, jealousy, consuming and living on interest, pouring the milk on he black idols which runs into the drainage, lingam and yoni (male and female privae part) veneration, you are all from the same tribes of Aghoris hindus who eat left over from human dead bodies on the banks of river Ganges. They drink in a bowl made of human skull. They apply ash from the human pyre. They are the followers of Hindu God – Lord Shiva, The practice of cannibalism, animal and human sacrifices are mostly related to tantric rites of the worshipers of the Mother goddess in any of the worship form – Kali, Dhurga, Kamakhya or Chammunda. Who gave you authority to comment on wrong information on Muslims? The people are much smarter so
        So you sitting in a glass house should not throw stone. If you dont want to learn about Islam, just keep watching Islam is the way of life for half of the world and it will not be too late the entire sensible population will want to live as Muslims. cholan Facts are not easily digestible.

      There maybe only one Allah (or God or however named) and Prophet Mohamed maybe a messenger of his (or her) but there are as many conceptions of him (or her), as there are human minds and there are many messengers of him.
      It is not idol worshippers destiny that is hell but those of the indoctrinated, the bigoted and the fanatical. An idol cannot protect itself from shitting of a crow or dog or vulture (and so cannot the Ka’bah in Mecca) but it can inspire feelings of compassion, devotion and worship, just as much as a mother’s perishable physical body or a picture of her can inspire love and happy feelings and that is the benefit to humans and human psyche. Created things do not perish but are impermanent and changing, like water may change to ice or steam but not become nothing. All creation is manifested from the creator and a part of him (or her) though the creation itself changes but the creator remains as is. The creator is not so petty or cruel as to have a special day of judgment reserved for punishment and rewards. There is only his law of action and reaction, of cause and effect, for which each is responsible for the outcome of his/her own actions. All the creator’s laws are natural, like the law of action and reaction and gravity etc. and all codes of conduct (which are considered laws) are manmade and all isms and religions can change but not the Truth. There is nothing to be enraged by your statements but only pity for your indoctrination and narrow mindedness. Yes, you have to calm down and think intelligently and that is what is important and not blind indoctrinated beliefs. Those who use statues or idols for worship do not do so for itself but for the positive emotions they create within oneself, just like a mother’s photo. The idol worshipper does not think that the idol is the creator, just as much he knows that his mother’s photo is not his mother. Even the so called non-Idol worshipper of the creator, worships what comes to his own mind, as he does not see the creator and internally both idol worshippers and non-idol worshippers are in the same boat. Both are worshippers of imagination. It is not only Islam but there are other isms as well, reading about which can provide spiritual knowledge. It is the dumb ones who think that only what they write or fanatically believe is correct and all others are wrong. As already stated, it is not the idol that will take one to hell but bigotry, fanaticism and narrow beliefs. Not only do they take one to hell but such people create hell on Earth, as can be seen.

    If muslims are veddas in the country why they are so much into Arabic language and arabic rituals and customes.

    Now only thing left is Catholics and christiand come and say they were also veddas in Sinhale.

    So, Tamils, muslims and christians can gang up and ask Sinhala-buddhists to go back to Bengal.

        you again and again quote baseless DNA test results of one man called Kasthriya who even did not visit this land. as per new excavation done by archaeologists, some items dating back to 800 BCE recovered.that means even before anuradhapura recognized as capital city of Rajarata some habitation existed in the village of Auradhapura. Looking at evidences unearthed by archaeologists, people lived here had gone through iron age even before south Indian started it. as per the proto historical evidences from cave sites iike Balangoda. Bundala, Bulathsinhala it is believed that old hominid, ancestors of modern human lived those caves. their mortal rituals were very much similar to people still living in Andaman Island. but that is not practiced by our vannila aththo. That means those hominids called balangodanists are ancestors of our sinhala race. even researchers found salt in this caves as such it is believed that South coast line and south western coastal line too were inhabited by same early hominids. Some evidences unearthed by researchers in Pallemalala and bandagiriya sites provide ample evidences in this connection.If you still say we are from India I challenge you to disprove those evidences recovered by scientists. And disprove evidences recovered from Great pyramids sites inside that local people lived here around 5000 BP did cinnamon trade with Egypt.as a person coming from south coastal line I challenge you to disprove my claim That we are the oldest inhabitant of this Island even before vedda community. We karava or karavo, Karadiya (salty water drinkers) or kara dho bonno karawo are the first inhabitant of this Island as such I claim we are the Adevaseen of This Island descendants of early hominids. you disprove it if you can with evidences like me and called us para.

          The account given in the Mahavamsa has no historical evidence to support the proposition that the Buddha ever visited this island . Biographer and literary critic Lytton Strachey once said, “ignorance is the first requisite of the historian. Ignorance which simplifies and clarifies, which selects and limits, with a placid perfection unattainable by the highest art. Had Lytton Strachey ever read the Mahavamsa, he would have been delighted to realize that Mahanama had followed his observation to the very letter.

      Every one has his right to practice his/her religious obligations, so as part of their everyday activities, it is obligatory for Muslim women to observe the dress code, the Muslims males, even Jewish male have their beard grown as part of the commandment of their Creator Almighty Allaah. The women are ordered to cover from head to foot, it is an obligation, likewise she is only obliged to show her beauty to her husband and Mahram males. So Muslim women do not show her body to public.

And let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment. And turn unto Allah together, O believers, in order that ye may succeed. (Quraan 14:31)

      Criticism of Avicennian philosophy

      a lot more names can be given, so dont think we Muslims are fools or fooling around. Muslims are very unique. So it is an opportunity to learn from the Muslims, be it toilet etiquette, be in hygiene, Even the westerners were using toilet paper but it was the Muslim who taught them to use water for one and two. So this is a message to highlight Muslims and their beautiful contribution for the betterment of the human race. I hope all Muslim hate mongers will learn a lesson. By the IsIs, suicide bombers, terrorists cannot be Muslims for sure, if they commit while being a Muslim, they will be expelled from the fold of Islam.

        As all these said only to women and not common for all Muslims so these cannot be accepted as Muslim’s requirement but should be recognized women subordination and so as should not be accepted in Lankawe’s laws. They are discriminatory.

          As all these said only to women and not common for all Muslims so these cannot be accepted as Muslim’s requirement but should be recognized women subordination and so as should not be accepted in Lankawe’s laws. They are discriminatory.
          You are ignorant of what Islamic laws, so learn from the learned people if you do not know, so here is the command for all believing men and womenL-

          ” Tell the believing men to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.). That is purer for them. Verily, Allah is All-Aware of what they do. (Al Quraan Surah Al Noor chapter 30.
          We Muslims have no options but to obey the Divine Laws, if not will be dwelling in the Hellfire forever. So we Muslims dont take chance of defying the Divine Laws.
          So Malayuran I hope you understand why Muslims have to follow the Divine Laws of their Creator Almighty Allah. The consequences for not obeying the Divine Laws will be eternal hellfire. Therefore, Muslims who fear their Lord, shall never be heedless of His Command. See what God Almighty Allaah Says in the Quran:-

          . To Him is the return of all of you. The Promise of Allah is true. It is He Who begins the creation and then will repeat it, that He may reward with justice those who believed (in the Oneness of Allah – Islamic Monotheism) and did deeds of righteousness. But those who disbelieved will have a drink of boiling fluids and painful torment because they used to disbelieve. (Al QuraanL Chapter Jonah Verse 4.

    Sinhala/Buddhist

    “This community continues these activities and expect the Sinhala Buddhists to keep quiet. To maintain communal harmony, the muslim community should discontinue these things immediately.”

    Why should the Muslim community stop these activities? Does the constitution or any other law prevent such activities?

    Now the new constitution is being drafted, this is the good time for you to convey your concerns to the ministry which oversees the drafting process.

    As long as Muslims abide by the laws of the land no one should be bothered about their activities, unless of course, you are racist/bigot or driven by envy.

    I think you are little racist suffer from jealousy and inferiority.

    If you don’t like the minorities you are free to leave this island.

    Muslims should never be given equal right as sinhalese, at the time of war no muslim came for blood donation and even though they have 9% population not even 1% dedicated their life to fight with Tigers, so they want equal right now, they should be given 9% of benefits given to Sinhalese we Sinhalese 80% contribute and pay for all social and welfare activities and it is unfair to treat all minorities equally and see whether any muslim countries at least allow another religion to survive, like Donald Trump says let muslim to go back where they came from if they cannot think as Sri lankan and still if they want their Arab legacy to be sowed here

      Muslims living in Sri Lanka must share equal rights as Sinhalese and Tamils, as they are all citizens of the same and one country, their motherland and homeland Sri Lanka. What evidence and numbers do you have to prove that Muslims did not donate blood when the call went out to save the lives of soldiers. They even sacrificed their own lives in combat to maintain the unitary status and territorial integrity of the country. They may have been fewer Muslims in numbers who died for the country, but that was due to the established army intake protocols and not due to lack of individuals to join as combatants.

      Allowing any other foreign religious faiths to thrive and take root in 100% Muslim countries is not only unacceptable but impractical as well. Mainly due to foreigners are only visitors on temporary employment Visas, and will ultimately return to their homelands on completion of contracts. Surely they wouldn’t want to be burdened with left-over baggage after those foreigners leave, so they take precautionary measures through pre-preemptive action. In fact, they are doing the foreigners a favor by providing employment opportunities in their country, and in return, wouldn’t want a fallout that they could handle. It is not the same in multi religious, multicultural and multi language countries such as ours.

      Americans were never known to be so much radicalized and racially divided, spewing such hatred, bigotry and in-fighting up until Donald Trump came along and pronounced his candidacy for the Presidency. It started from day one by attacking Mexicans as rapists, murderers and illegal immigrants. What good can anyone expect from such a character. Now that he has won, his new appointees coming from the basket of deplorables are none other than white supremacists leaders who are anti-black, anti-Catholic, anti-gay, anti-abortion and anti-Semitic. So why not the anti-Muslim agenda into the fray, is not such a big deal anymore, although you propose this to be the done thing. However, no Muslim will lose sleep over it, as they have faith in their Master Planner above, Whose Grand Plan will ultimately manifest itself for the world to see. The fact remains that through all of this election propaganda commotion, more and more Americans are discovering Islam than at any previous time. They increasingly come in contact with Muslims, and stand in solidarity with them than amidst all of the abuse than at any time before. So much for your misguided slug to malign Muslims.

    Thawheed Jamath,

    Wijedasa Rajapaksa is a liar, is a fraudster, a top con artist, therefore like all others of his ilk, a successful Sri Lankan politician. Playing to the Daham Pasala educated ignorant majority Sinhala Buddhist polity is part and parcel of this popularity game. Appealing to him for justice will achieve you nothing.

    Next is about SLTJ. What kind of Islam does SLTJ propound. Many Sri Lankan Muslims are divided on the issue of MMDA. Some Muslims want it scrapped. I wonder if there is much difference between the Daham Pasala educated narrow minded meeharak Sinhala Buddhists and the Madrasa educated narrow minded meeharak Muslims as well. Time for all to grow up and change.

      Tamils took SL more than 50 years backward. MR and his family will enjoy in the palace, and you idiots will not even have 2 times rice + ‘polsambola’ a day if you’re preparing to take SL further backward. Finally will end up exporting your poor women in containers to Saudi and other Arab nations for feeding your own kids or you will end up becoming a slave in another country with a work-permit.

      Don’t ever think that other countries except Arab nations would take SL housemaids as they want some sophisticated, educated and good looking maids.

      Saudis and other Arab nations prefer our maids for the same reason I noted above, but for their own advantages that are obvious, and few really want to help the poor

    few acceptable facts ,

    Muslims government by Muslim leaders in their lands are told to bear with their leaders even if they seem oppressive.

    The facts of the saying unfolded.

    Indonesia .maids were never allowed to go to work as maids , they lived with dignity working factories, today their state is very sad in their own own country as well as outside.

    Afghanistan .President of Afghanistan from 1987 until 1992,

    Pakistan -Musharraf

    Iraq – Saddam Hussain

    Libya -Muhammad Ghadafi

    and Now we see it happening in Syria with Assad.

    ==============================================

    Do your own research and see how much better of the people were with these leaders than they are now.

      Muslim misery said, “Muslims government by Muslim leaders in their lands are told to bear with their leaders even if they seem oppressive.”

      Did you see the common thread among Afganistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria? USA, Europe,and Russian.

      Not long ago, I would also add Sri Lanka to the countries that were oppressed.

    MFM Rasmin, the Asst Sec of the SLTJ is talking through his hat, more likely the Southern End, like his erstwhile Secreatry who is enjoying government hospitality in Remand Prison. He has underestimated the intelligence of Sri Lankans in general and the Muslims in particular. He should have done his own research before coming out with inaccurate and foolish claims in the social media. He claims that his forefathers were the indigenous people of Sri Lanka. He has forgotten that indigenous people of this island are the Veddhas, descendants of Pricnce Vijaya and Kuveni Union,, the latter of the indigenous Yakkas he married. Vijaya is believed to have arrived between 6 and 5 BCE. Islam has its origin at the start of the 7th century AD. Therefore your forefathers couldn’t be indigenous people as you claim. Islam was introduced to Sri Lanka by the Arab traders who arrived between 8 and 15 centuries AD. That is why there are no followers of Islam amongst the indigenous people/ Veddahs in Sri Lanka. Put your brain into gear before you set your mouth into motion or using the key board.

    Secondly you have appointed your organisation as the spokesman on behalf of all Muslims in Sri Lanka. SLTJ or the Thowheed Jamath is an intruder into the Muslim community that made its appearance only a few years back piggy backing on the Wahabis and Salafis of Saudi Arabia. With SLTJs ignominious entry, peace and tranquility that prevailed in the Muslim Community was shattered so was the friendly and harmonious relationship we have enjoyed for centuries with the majority community. You have no right to speak for o n behalf of Muslim Organisations. You only speak for yourself and the organisation you represent.

    Thirdly do not bring judiciary into the defence of your secretary or your organisation. Viewers of all TV channels and social media witnessed the abusive, offensive and uncouth language your secretary unleashed on Buddhism and the clergy of this organisation. People are judges, not you or your misguided organisation that exists on the bank roll of your pay masters in SA. Your secretary did speak of eating human flesh and Darwins theory of evolution thus exposing his ignorance and low intellectual capacity. If your organisation is a responsible organisation it should have taken steps to distant itself from the organisation’s ignorant and rabble rousing secretary.

    You have in your statement referred to the Muslim refugees due to LTTE activities. Where was your organisation when the well to do Muslims in Jaffna and Mannar arrived as paupers, homeless and destitute in Puttalam. Does your organisation want to drag innocent Muslims back to the refugee camps. Also explain why some representatives of the Tamilnadu Thowheed Jamath were present at the protest march against the MM&D Act in Colombo.

    In conclusion stop trying to be the self appointed spokesman for the Muslim Community. Speak for yourself and put your house in order. Get your facts right and do not under estimate the intelligence of Sri Lankans.

    Kaaba in macca is a direction only. even if the kaaba is not there we will pray the same direction.This place is holy land from the time of Adam, so its not new.

    idol worshipping? praying to idols made of wood/stone and thinking the idol will bring good or will bring misfortune. Hindus/Buddhist/Catholics/ shia
    this is guranteed hell fire.
    why? Only being to worship is Allah and prophet Mohamed is the messenger of Allah. like Jesus/Abraham/Moses/Noah ect…
    complete monothism .
    to the dumb commentators who worship idols,spend some time with your idol, and observe: 1. can it protect itself- birds will shit/dogs will shit on it
    not even a shoo.
    2. can this idol which the idol worshipper belives in do any good or bad.
    3.what if the idol worshipper brakes the idol, can it defend itself.
    4.idol is made out of rock, wood. will be destroyed. what then. has the idol died.
    5.what is the idol worshipper praying to
    6.hindu culture is the worst dumb system followed: caste/women jumping into the fire when husband dies/ eating dead humans in gangas/drinking cow urine.
    taking the cow as god. (leading polluter) green house effect.
    poor country in all indicies, large disparity in income of brahmins and low caste untachables.
    idols are more valued than humans.
    abortion/ girl slavery.

      If Kaaba in Mecca is for just direction only, then why do Muslims pay millions of Dollars and gather in their millions, to go merry-go-round the stone block and is Allah to be found only in that direction. Just as much as you have an explanation for this, others also have an explanation for their beliefs & ways of worship. Your bigoted, moronic, psychopathic, monomaniacal brain is not developed enough to understand the deep spiritual & mystical teachings in “Hinduism”, Buddhism, Sufism..A worshiper using idols for reverence is no different from the worshipper of an imaginary Allah. In fact generally they are more peaceful & tolerant than many of the Allah worshippers. You exhibit your dumb ignorance with your rantings on “Hinduism” when so much worse things are happening in the name of Islam. Atleast “Hindu” social practices have been open to reforms, with changing times, unlike many dumb Muslims who oppose the reformation of draconian and barbaric features in Sharia law. It is only the Sufis who add a lot of decency to Islam, whilst most others are just bigoted and fanatical. Your mindset is not much different from that of a Taliban, Al Qaida or ISIS oprative.

    “Religion is the opium of the people”. How true it remains 133 years after Karl Marx the philosophers demise in 1883. Mostly people inherit religion from their parents and do not belong to a religion by conviction. More people have been killed in the name of religion than any natural disasters. World will be a better place to live without religion I believe. Karl Marx had a solution to stop fighting among the masses. It is engraved on his tomb stone at Hibury cemetery North London to this day.” WORKERS OF ALL LANDS UNITE”
