To Vote Or Not To Vote

By M H M Faizer

As a born and practicing Muslim I am inclined not to vote for Mahinda Rajapaksa (MR). MR was quite insensitive for issues faced by the Muslims in Sri Lanka. He maintained a deafening silence when all things were going wrong for the minority Muslims in the country. His brother, Gotabaya Rajapaksa was quite open in saying that there is Muslim terrorism in Sri Lanka. MR was witnessing the development and growth of the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS). BBS was going out in all directions to attack the Muslims. They were inculcating into the minds of ordinary Buddhists that the Muslims are fast becoming a threat to the Buddhists and Buddhism and that they are in touch with the Muslim terrorist organizations worldwide. The political leadership also was endorsing this view of the BBS by not acting against their violent speeches and actions.

I agree that a majority of Muslims in Sri Lanka have become EXTREMISTS but certainly not TERRORISTS! They have become extremists in terms of practicing their religion. They want to become extremely pious. Islam after Prophet Muhammad is now almost 1450 years old.Over this period the practice of original Islam have diminished mainly due to whole lot of rituals being added! In the last forty years or so there is a revival of the original practices of Islam. Thanks to technology and other forms of communication there emerged a large number of Scholars who clearly communicated the original practices of Islam. The correct understanding of its principles in terms of social life,business practices and spiritual beliefs were imparted. Thus, emergence of Sharia banking ( though interest dealings are a taboo, the Islamic countries freely practiced them without correct knowledge), the Purdhah and Hijab for women, the details of Haram and Halaal food are some examples of them. So Muslims started following these original practices once again.In other words they were trying to become Extremely religious – whats wrong with it? In fact it is good for the society. When a community becomes religious they become more and more passive. Despite the killings and burnings at the Aluthgama incident, the Muslims did not retaliate.They also did not respond to all the Hate speeches of the BBS! Why? One contributing reason is their strong and extreme faith in Islam which strongly advocate Patience and to seek assistance from God Almighty!

Mahinda MuslimThe Muslims were hurt that the then Government did not take any proactive measures in curbing the threats of the BBS. The reactive measures taken by the Government since the Aluthgama incidence were also not that effective. There was ample proof about the people who were responsible but no arrests or any tangible stern action were taken.

In addition to this Muslim Factor the second major factor that goes against MR is the Corruption charges! This need no discussion .We all know the Magnitude and Scale of corruption and even MR acknowledges it. But here again MR remained silent and turned a blind eye. He was vey well aware of all the corrupt deals that were going around! The Corruption became very visible especially because it was done by a handful of few people unlike in a normal government where too corruption takes place but does not get highlighted because it is done by more than a hundred people in the Government. Nobody can stop corruption in Asian Countries whether it is a MR government or any other Government. The accusation that MR government is Corrupt does not imply in no way that another government would be corrupt free. This is a fact. Corruption is a common game for any government. Some are not tactful and get caught but for some others it is an Art.

MR on the other hand stands a unique leader for his achievements. It might take another hundred years to find a leader like him for a country like Sri Lanka. The way he fought the Tiger War was incredible. You need a lot of Guts to raise your finger against the USA and to give two hoots for their requests to halt the War! He had the same attitude as Winston Churchill when he fought the War! MR was determined, well focused, arrogant and dictatorial. One need to have such traits to win against a ruthless but a powerful enemy!

It will be inhuman if one will forget the Man (MR) behind this Victory. How can we forget the hundreds and thousands of people killed up to 2009? This include the 147 Muslims killed inside the mosque in Kattankudy in 1990: 990 police officers also in 1990: 127 in Habarana in 1987: 113 at the Pettah bus stand in 1987: 91 in Central bank Bombing in 1996: 64 in Dehiwala train bombing etc etc: and assasinations of Gamini Dissanayake (1994), CV Gunaratne (2000), Ranjan Wijeratne (1991) and President Premadasa (1993) etc.

In addition to this, the economic development since 2009 has also been very impressive. The macro economic parameters such as the growth rate, per capita income, inflation rate,unemployment rate, and several others have dramatically improved since 2009.

One more striking factor during the MR period was the amount of infra structure development that took place in the country. This needs no discussion since we all can see this development not only in Colombo but throughout the island. The life has become better in Sri Lanka of course. Billions of rupees was spent on the war and the Country rating was least impressive due to our label as a war torn country. Hence one cannot have expected FDI and other form of Investments into the country. But yet to build so much infra structure development was indeed is remarkable even at a high cost!!

The argument that the Muslims will be attacked once again if MR comes back is a myth. This is a propaganda by parties with vested interests! It does not happen that way. The same story was there immediately after the 1983 killings of the Tamils. Similar stories were spread immediately after the Tsunami and the beach lands were sold for a toffee.

It makes economic and development sense to vote for MR for the betterment of the Country but as a Muslim i am confused. I cannot vote for MR. Hence my decision is NOT to vote for anybody!!

Note: Another important factor that influenced my decision of NOT to vote is our current Muslim Political Leadership. I cannot find a single person either in the Government or any other party whom I can be of convinced will fight for the rights of Muslims. They do not seem to know the difference between Self Interest and Selfishness.

    This man is pessimistic person. One hand he blames MR and co for all corruption. Yet. He says MR is a good leader.????.he praises him as a unique leader. What uniqueness he has got? He looted tsunami money? He got drug into this country? Did he won the war? He paid money to LTTE? This is unique leader did ?
    Do you want more? It is a history now? it looks like he is an agent of someone to write like this. All muslims politicians are bad. Then vote for a good sinhalese ? What is wrong in it? Some time some idiots write in CT?
    The quality of CT is gone down now. Now less people read it.

      In short, the Sri Lankan Muslims became Idiots following Iblis- Wahhabis and their Wahhabi traditions that are Iblisic or Satanic.

      They followed the Iblis, Satan, Shaitan and devilish traditions of the Wahhabis and their clones, and not required in Islam.

      The Muslims became stupider and stupider…

      In fact they became so stupid, that they even began to take up the Wahhabi-Iblisic Traditions of the 7th Century, made the Sri Lankan Muslim women to dress up in black and cover the whole body.

      Black cloth due to black body radiation, absorbs all the light and heat, infrared light, and warms up the cloth, and make the women wearing heat up and sweat. Furthermore, due to the coverage of the whole body, there is very little circulation, and women are made to suffer like in a mini oven, and cannot dissipate the heat produced by the body by evaporation of the sweat.

      In addition, due to the screening of the sunlight by the black cloth, light does not reach the skin, and no natural Vitamin D is produced. Most Muslim women suffer from Vitamin D deficiency, and its symptoms.

      Do you think, God, Allah would have dictated that women cover from Head to Toes i black so that they will suffer from Vitamin D deficiency by preventing sunlight reaching their skin? No!

      Then, who would dictate that? Those who are opposed to Allah, God.

      Who is that? Iblis, Shaitan, Satan, Devil, Lucifer and their followers Wahhabis and their clones, Salafus, Deobandis, Taliban, Boko Haram etc. Quran warns over 25 times against Iblis and his followers.

      I hope you know the meaning of the word unique. If so with all your listed characters of MR you prove this guy is right to say MR is unique.

    It is not only MR but the entire package of Killers, Goons, Thugs and Thieves.

    However not voting at all is not an option as that would help this evil gang to raise their heads. A Vote for those who do not espouse racist agendas and are for broad based good governance is a Vote against MR and his gang of thieves and murderers.

    These are very good reasons for Muslims for not supporting Mahinda Rajapaksa. Remember 46% of the Sinhala Buddhists, 75 to 80% of the Tamils and Christians also did not support Mahinda Rajapaksa. Those reasons are due to Law and order Issues,Corruption, Nepotism, Lying, Robberies, Rapes and criminality, all associated with Mahinda Rajapaksa and Gotabaya Rajapaksa and their cronies.

    “I agree that a majority of Muslims in Sri Lanka have become EXTREMISTS but certainly not TERRORISTS! They have become extremists in terms of practicing their religion.”

    “As a born and practicing Muslim”, you need to transform yourself into a Thinking Muslim, and be aware of the Iblis, Satan, Shaitan, Devil, warned and mentioned over 25 times in the Quran, to be beware if the trickery like Mahinda Rajapaksa.

    MaRa MaRa Chatu MaRa Amana MaRa

    Iblis Shaitan Chatu Wahhabi Salafi Amana Wahhabi Clones…

    Yes, the Muslims have become Extremists after they gave up Islam, and followed Iblism, Iblis, Satan, Devil as taught by the Iblis infected Wahhabis and their clones, Salafis, Tawhidis, Deobandis, ISIS, Talibans and Boko Harams.

    In short, the Sri Lankan Muslims became Idiots following Wahhabis and their Wahhabi traditions that are Iblisic or Satanic.

    They followed the Iblis, Satan, Shaitan and devilish traditions of the Wahhabis and their clones, and not required in Islam.

    The Muslims became stupider and stupider…

    They want to get back to the days of Ignorance, Jahaliah, which Prophet Mohamed fought against. Wahhabism is Arab racism and Arab Casteism, wrapped in the Iblis, the Satan, the Devil. They are innovating and twisting Islam based on instructions from Ibis, Satan.

    Wahhabis, Salafis and their clones are truly the followers of Iblis, Satan, Shaitan, Devil and the Sri Lankan Muslims and many other Muslims are misled and confused.

    To begin with, Wahhabis, the ISIS, “I” is Not Islamic. It is actually Iblisic. Iblis is the Satan, Shaitan, Devil, Lucifer, Mara who is against God and Good. Iblis is the same Satan in Heaven who fooled Adam and Eve in Heaven, and now fooling people in Najd, the Wahhabis and their clones, the new Trojan Horse, or rather the Iblis Horse.

    Muslims should take one step further, and call a Spade, a Spade, call ISIS, Iblis, Satan and Devil.

    Imam Ahmed al Sawi (Rahimuhullah) in his magnificent commentary over Tafsir al Jalalyn by Imam Jalal ud din Suyuti (rah) explains this verse : Truly, the Devil is an enemy to you, so take him as an enemy: he only calls his party to become of the inhabitants of the blaze” (Qur’an 35:6) as:

    Translation: It is said this verse was revealed about the Kharijites [foretelling their appearance], who altered the interpretation of the Qur’an and Sunnah, on the strength of which they declared it lawful to kill and take the property of Muslims—as may now be seen in their modern counterparts; namely, a sect in the Hijaz called “Wahabiya, (فرقة بأرض الحجاز يقال لهم الوهابية)” who “think they are on something, truly they are the liars (Kadhibeen). Satan has gained mastery over them and made them forget Allah’s remembrance. Those are Satan’s party, truly Satan’s party, they are the losers” (Qur’an 58:18–19). We ask Allah Most Generous to extirpate them completely [Hashiya al-Sawi ‘ala al-Jalalayn, 3.255]

      Don’t think he will abide by your advice as he is a one of the subjects who benefited from MARA regime, so he has to worship his worldly master and do his part to bolster dwindling support to MARA.

      He has been in the payroll of MARA. We all know kind of benefits MARA stooges get provided they oblige with MARA’s ulterior needs.

        “”“I agree that a majority of Muslims in Sri Lanka have become EXTREMISTS but certainly not TERRORISTS! They have become extremists in terms of practicing their religion.”””

        It looks like it was the Ego of Iblis and Ego of MaRa that has go in the way.

        Iblis , Satan, Shaitan because of his Ego dos not want to obey God, Allah and rebelled. So, it has become a compensation between Iblis and Allah to get followers.

        Most Muslims follow God, Allan, but dome like the Wahhabis and their clones such as ISIS etc follow Inbis.

        With Mahinda Rajapaksa, it is Mahinda Rajapaksa , MaRa not obeying the Will of the people, the voters.

        He is trying to get back, like Iblis, because of his Ego, get back by misleading the Voters.

        So Iblis, Satan is like MaRa, Mara. Botht are looking for adherents to deceive.

        For Iblis, the audience of Followers are Muslims and Iblis followers ( Wahhabis and their Clones)

        For MaRa the audience of Followers are Sri Lankans, Buddhists, Christians, Tamils, Muslims etc and MaRa followers and cronies (Mahinda Rajapaksa Shills and their Clones)

        Vote for any animal but not betel leaf: CBK

        http://www.dailymirror.lk/83353/animal-but-not-betel-leaf-cbk

        Former President Chandrika Bandaranaike said the people could vote for any animal and not for the betel leaf symbol or the hand symbol at the forthcoming general elections if they wanted to save the country from corrupt individuals.

        Addressing several public meetings in Embilipitiya and the Eheliyagoda towns the former President said the UNP, the Hela Urumaya, a faction of the SLFP and the Leftist parties had joined hands on January 8 to bring about a change and to form a national government.

        The JVP was not directly involved in the campaign but it supported.

        “Again the main constituent parties of the national government are contesting the general elections to take forward the policy of national government. “Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka’s Democratic Party is contesting the election in the hope of winning as a separate group. However, he will support the national government that would be formed after the election.

        “The corrupt rule should be wiped out and a new system of government without political differences should be formed. It is the duty of the people to support forces that have undertaken to move forward that object.

        “On the other hand, my party has fallen prey to robbers. The situation is beyond the control of President Maithripala Sirisena, even though he is the Chairman. “The corrupt individuals cannot be expected to lead the country along the right path. The Citizen’s Force is not affiliated to any political party. A vote for the UNP is not a vote for a political party but for a movement that could build the country. Now democracy in the country has been restored and we can chase away the corrupt representatives,” she said. (Ajithlal Shantha Udaya) –

    You definitely are confused. What does Islam say about those who are corrupt, cheats, liars and murderers. Read the teachings and then vote accordingly.
    Also there are the original teachings and man made intrusions. Also Interpolations. Study those as well. It helps what you call ” Extremists”, becoming Moderates. I personally prefer the picture of my youth when our Sri Lankan Muslim ladies wore the Sari and used the draping part of it to cover their heads. But then again it is only my opinion.
    Whatever religion man or woman may practice ,laws that were prevelant and logical 2,500,2000 or 1,500 years ago were laws of its time. Time brings change and some see the logic behind it while others fight tooth and nail to keep ancient laws which are impractical in this day and age.

      ” I personally prefer the picture of my youth when our Sri Lankan Muslim ladies wore the Sari and used the draping part of it to cover their heads.”

      Those Muslim Ladies of your youth went to Heaven, had sunlight on their skins and had plenty of Vitamin D to be healthy.

      That is what happens when Muslims just blindly follow Iblis, Satan and his followers like Wahhabis and their clones, without thinking, without using their God given brains, or using the brains that evolved over millions of years.

      See what happened to Adam and Eve when they followed the Iblis, Satan in Heaven, according to the scriptures, and got thrown out to Earth..,

      Now this time, those who follow Iblis, Wahhabis and their clones who follow Iblis and Satan, will be thrown out from the Earth to Hell fire…because there is no second Earth… mat be Venus that is 800 Degrees Celsius..

    Faizer,
    Your analysis is interesting, MR is somebody who lost his track, if not he would have been worshiped by country men for war victory. His so called infrastructure development was a mega White Elephant to say the least.
    All those projects were undertaken at highly inflated costs , some times 04 or 05 times more than the real cost , so it’s not exaggeration to say “commission” was 500% , the only purpose was to make US$ Billions for Rajapases,so they did,

    And, If not who would ever build an Air Port in Birds Sanctuary , next to the biggest Wildlife Sanctuary in the country ? &

    And,Who would build huge Sea Port without any geological study ( just to find out a huge rock in the middle of the sea port) & without a feasibility study ? It’s still without merchant ships for several years, this is in the light of thousands of merchant ships navigating few nautical miles away from this port.

    Super High Ways are no different, again 4 – 5 times more than the actual cost & southern highway is below international standard , each of 4 lanes 14″ inches less than the international standard, this you can experience when you drive through it, but for them it’s not the issue , it’s Billion Dollar Commission.

    So all those projects did not give any ‘Returns On Investment’ for the country’s Economy. Only program that gave return was Fertilizer Subsidy.

    As for BBS etc; those were just to divert peoples attention from mega Billion Dollar commission deals, nothing more. They did not only attack Muslims but for others as well, for example Weliveriya killings of people who asked for drinking water & Katunayake killings of Fishermen & FTZ factory workers.

    MR regime lived in another world, they thought they were Kings of Sri Lanka, they came down to earth only on 08th January 2015.

    As for voting, better exercise your franchise & see dictators are no more, corruption, familial rule is no more.

    I don’t completely agree with latter part of the article. The GDP calculation during the previous regime was flawed, the basket of goods considered didn’t cover it all, hence the inflated GDP figures.
    If a country is to gain economic prosperity, I’m guessing it need not necessarily be reflected on the infrastructure or any apparant macro economic variable, instead Sri Lanka neeeds to focus on the eradicating poverty, it’s like we’re trying to beautify what is apparent to the naked eye and make believe we are on the path towards development, we have approx 9% of the population living below the poverty lines and 26.3% (2012) of children under the age of 5 years are underweight!

    Exercising your vote would mean you either HOPE for some change to occur with the present government or you continue to accept the practices and policies of the previous regime.While not voting is certainly a choice,it means you cannot complain nor praise the actions the activities of the winning party post the elections. Sorry this is just my two-cents, you can of course contradict everything I have said

    The author fails to recognize that there are many other candidates to choose from! Is he even from Kurunegala? What of his opinion of other parties and candidates? This is no Presidential Election where there are only a few to choose from, and all voters have the same choice before them!

    A rather weak position to take! I do not even want to go into the arguments he has outlined as they are no brainers!

    We respect your decision not to vote for either parties since you believe that unless there are stringent measures taken to curb bribery and corruption, any government would eventually become prone to such allegations, thus succumbing to the peoples wrath and their displeasure in so called ‘good’ governance. We are also well aware of the jinx of ill-will, bad-luck and misfortune that will continue tormenting the country and its people by virtue of such crimes. All the good things written about the country’s development that took place during MR’s term is also very true. However the bad things that happened under his watch, far over-rides the good that happened to the country during that same period. He was too much into star gazing and trusted soothsayers and clairvoyants to make vital decisions on behalf of the country, and now admits (too late) this mistake as a reason for his downfall.

    Even after the major damage to life, limb and properties of Muslims caused by BBS hate speech last year, he used the SL army and provided the required government funding to rebuild damaged homes and business places, although lost lives could never be replaced. In fact some of the rebuilt homes are of much better quality and standard than what it was and the people are appreciative of this fact. In essence MR does have a streak of goodwill towards Muslims of this country, but his failure to use the police to reign in the mad monks who had gone berserk, and let his brother, war mongering Gota to call the shots, was another reason for his downfall. At least otherwise he could have still maintained minority support, which would have made the difference in his fortunes.

          Yes. The baiyyos are brainwashed , they want only want Mara MaRa Chatu MaRa. They need to be reprogrammed, but the problem is that they have an average IQ of 65. Make the MaRa MaRa baiyyos sing:

          May be it may work with some MaRa MaRa baiyyos.

          This is very similar to the brainwashed Iblis misled and brainwashed baiyyos, called Wahhabis and their clines, ISIS, ISIL, Taliban, Boko Haram, Deobandi etc

          Yes. The Iblis, Iblees, Satan, baiyyos are brainwashed, they want only want Iblis insertions of Islam They need to be reprogrammed, but the problem is that they have an average IQ of 65, and are not thinking Muslims, but Iblis Infected, Wahaabi-Salafi brainwashed misled Muslims, called Wahhabis and Iblises.

          Mind control (also known as brainwashing, reeducation, coercive persuasion, thought control, or thought reform) is a theoretical indoctrination process which results in “an impairment of autonomy, an inability to think independently, and a disruption of beliefs and affiliations. In this context, brainwashing refers to the involuntary reeducation of basic beliefs and values”.[1]

    Not voting will only mean that your vote may eventually be cast by someone else illegally.. it’s better to vote the best of available options. it is a Hobson’s choice though..

    Brother Faizer

    An excellent soliloquy. One that resonates sharply with my own thinking, subject to the following ‘course-correction’. Your description of the majority of SL Muslims as having become ‘Extremists’ may be a misnomer. I would suggest the use of the softer term ‘Fundamentalists’. There is a world of difference between the terms Fundamentalist and Extremist. A Fundamentalist is one who chooses to adhere strictly to the teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah, but does not seek to impose such practices on other Muslims – verbally or otherwise. Fundamentalists are basically at peace with themselves at the thought that they are following Islam as it was intended. An Extremist on the other hand is also one who chooses to adhere strictly to the teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah, but is ready and willing to go to extreme lengths including violence to ensure that other Muslims too adhere to such practices. Such Muslims are not at peace with themselves.

    I am of the view that if one is to analyze the experiences of the Muslim Community during the period 2012 – 2014 objectively, then it is imperative that we do so not merely in the context of the internal (local anti-Muslim) forces that were in play at that time, but more importantly take cognizance of the external (international anti-Muslim) forces that were, and continue to be, extremely active in our Motherland. Was the Muslim Community used as the Cat’s Paw in a new Regime-change operational strategy based on the convergence of interests of internal and external players ? Was our Motherland used to test and refine strategies that will eventually be used to balkanize India, which along with China, are destined to become Economic Powerhouses of the future ?

    Forget corruption. ‘Corruption’ is the price that the Public has to pay for electing a specific Political Party into Office. We have been doing so since Independence. And we will continue to do so in the future. Anybody who thinks otherwise is living in Cloud-Cuckoo-land.

    It is time for the SL Muslim Community to be, and to be perceived as, equal stake-holders in the process of re-uniting and re-building our Motherland. To do so, we may have at times to make harsh, distasteful decisions. It is time to think as a Sri Lankan.

    Replace the word ‘lion’ with ‘dragon’ and that expains why I would not vote for MR.

    This man’s understanding of religion being understood well now because of technological breathrough shows the idiocy of such religious men. THey are so stupid that it is like talking to a man who can only see black or white but not grey….
    add to the fact he is ok with killing tamils or poor Sinhalese but no body should touch the muslims, what kind of spirituality is this that does not go beyond his own selfish community?

    Dear Mr. Faizer

    I commend you on an extremely civilized and in my view fair minded article. No matter what you views, Colombo Telegraph has a “comments policy”, probably has a writers policy too.


    1. We welcome debate and dissent, but personal attacks (on authors, other users or any individual), persistent trolling and mindless abuse will not be tolerated. The key to maintaining the website as an inviting space is to focus on intelligent discussion of topics.”

    This is rule #1, and you have been very much in line with this.

    I am extremely sorry about the harassment that Muslims have had to go through in recent times. I am sure the former President is also regretting this. Hopefuly we will be able to create an environment in which all people are protected. My personal belief is that we need a very strong leader to do this, one who has realized his mistakes. (Who?)

    I feel that Muslims should explain clearly the reasons for the rise in fundamentalism and their stand against extremism.

    M.H.M. FAIZER, you are being clever. But it is easy to see who you really are: an opportunist and a mercenary. CT readers, please be patient, read on, you will see why.

    If YOU want to call yourself an extremist, that’s fine. But what right do you have to say Muslims of Sri Lanka are extremists? Today it is well recognized that the word “Extremist” refers to a person who holds political or religious views or engages in acts that Society considers are dangerous and unreasonable, and are a threat to social order per se. Muslims of Sri Lanka are not extremists.

    You imply that due to the dissemination of a better quality of education through the improved facilities available today, the heresies and myths propagated by the illiterate “Mullah” fraternity, are receding. You are right. Allah’s Word in the Holy Quran, and the teachings of the Holy Prophet (during his lifetime, as opposed to those attributed to the Prophet in most of the Hadeeths manufactured 200 years after his demise, propping up male chauvinism, partnerships with Allah, and familial rule), have now come to the fore. As a result, particularly the educated Muslims, who set the tone for the whole community, have become devout Muslims, practitioners of the unadulterated faith, the religion of Peace, which means promoting peace and harmony among ALL groups of people constituting the Nation.

    You also seem to have a good understanding of the English language. You could very well have stated the truth which is that the Community is well on the way to becoming DEVOUT MUSLIMS. Then why the mysterious proclamation that Muslims of Sri Lanka are extremists, when you know 100 percent that they are not. Is it far from the truth to say that your intention is to give the impression to the Sinhala Buddhist leaders, that they should not consider you as one of us Muslims? Your Article provides the answer.

    You have provided excellent reasons why the Rajapaksa Thieves should be rejected. You have with difficulty refrained from recommending the UNFGG to the Muslim electorate, although they have eminently earned it. You make a big deal about you not voting for Muslim political parties, due to their unsuitability for Political Office. Why say it out loud when there is no compulsion to vote for them, and you have alternatives? Then you sing the praises of Mahinda Rajapaksa, when it must be known to you that all his actions, without exception, were MOTIVATED by greed and lust for power and money. In the unlikely event he is returned to power, you hope Mahinda will welcome you with a gift of Office. Then you declare you will not vote for Mahinda at this General Election, to keep a toe in the door of Maithripala/Ranil.

    Instead of your convoluted treatise you could simply have said I am not voting for anyone, I will be the friend, slave, pimp and prostitute of any party that wins the elections. Faizer, I see no difference between you and Rauff Hakeem, or any of the other so called Muslim leaders. You too are actively looking to benefit from any Party that comes into power. You Faizer are of that breed which validates the racist projection of the Muslim Community in that old picnic song: Thambige Thoppiya. If Sinhala Buddhist leaders have an iota of commitment to uphold honor and dignity, they will keep you away like the plague.

    And Muslims do not need a ‘friend’ like you.

      Well summarized. However, nobody is addressing the deception by Iblis, Satan on the Muslims by way of the Wahhabis, Salafis and their clones.

      “the heresies and myths propagated by the illiterate “Mullah” fraternity, are receding.”

      The Petro dollars have expanded the reach of Iblis and Satans confusing the Muslims, claiming Tawheed and calling themselves Salafis. The Iblis, Satan has been partially successful here.

    Faizer – you seem pro Mahinda and an extreme fundamentalist! tsk,tsk.

    QUOTE:
    The argument that the Muslims will be attacked once again if MR comes back is a myth. This is a propaganda by parties with vested interests! It does not happen that way.

    It makes economic and development sense to vote for MR for the betterment of the Country but as a Muslim i am confused. I cannot vote for MR. Hence my decision is NOT to vote for anybody!!
    UNQUOTE

    In the first Paragraph of yours you say that Muslims are safe with MR as the mala fide information is a myth.

    In the second paragraph you say you wont vote for anyone ?

    What are you trying to tell the readers?
    Is it perhaps, that if one decides to vote it should be for MR or none at all?

    MR and his cronies have been living the following tune for many years now and cannot change their tune – in the future!

    THE MONEY ROLLS IN

    My father makes illegal whisky,
    My mother makes illicit gin,
    My sister sells sin on the corner,
    My God how the money rolls in.

    Chorus :
    Rolls in, rolls in, my God how the money rolls in, rolls in,
    Rolls in, rolls in, my God how the money rolls in.
    My mother’s a bawdy house keeper,
    Every night when the evening grows dim,
    She hangs out a little red lantern,
    My God how the money rolls in.
    Chorus

    My brother’s a curate in Torquay,
    He’s saving poor girlies from sin,
    He’ll save you a blonde for a guinea,
    My God how the money rolls in.
    Chorus…..

    MHM Faizar,

    You have proved undoubtedly that you are a Muslim Terrorist. The chracteristic of a Muslim terrorist that they do not bother about the unjustices to his fellow Muslim brothers or any other races. I think you have made an error in comparaing Mahinda Rajapakse to Churchil instead of Hitlor. It is easy to win a war if you practice similar methods used by Hitlor. Mahinda Rajapakse used food & medicine as a weapon in this war. He used chemical weapons in this war. He massacred over 100,000 innocent Tamil civilians within a week using cluster bombs. You are happy because your Tamil brothers and sisters were killed because you hate Tamils though your mother tounge is Tamil. I think you should vote for Mahinda.

    Dear Mr. M H M Faizer

    You may be born a Muslim but certainly not a wise Muslim, nor in possession of facts. I’d advise you to read the comments from Amarasiri, apparently not a Muslim but knows far more than yourself on what has happened to the Muslims in Sri Lanka.

    I am astonished at your faith in the Rajapakse regime in spite of the despicable damage they did to Muslims – a leopard does not change its spots. Your argument that all governments are corrupt is a wicked assumption and not a valid reason for supporting Mahinda Rajapakse. Even in Sri Lanka there have been honest politicians namely D. N M Perera, Philip Gunawardena, Dr.S A Wickramasinghe, Colvin R.de Silva, Leslie Gunawardena, Bernard Soysa, Peter Keuneman, V Kandia, V Karlasingham, D S and Dudley Senanayake to name a few and my great friend Mr.Patrick Gunawardena, former Warden of St. Thomas College,Mount Lavinia.

    I also believe Ranil Wickramasinghe and Maithripala Sirisena are miles more honest than the Rajapakses.

    Muslims are their own worst enemy. They receive aid from Saudi Arabia but there’s no need to please them at every turn, good, bad or indifferent. They subjugate women most atrociously does not mean it should be followed here. Planting date palms in Katankudy to make it look like Arabia was silly. Not socialising with non-Muslims with the excuse that the food they serve is not Halal is lame. Vegetarians have more restrictions but nevertheless readily socialise. Since when did the dress code, only for women, e.g. the Burka, became mandatory. Muslims are clamouring for the Shariah Laws ignoring its barbaric punishments and unfairness to women.

    The Muslims in Sri Lanka have earned themselves far more rights over the years and many of them to their detriment. The Muslim divorce laws are skewed against the women, separate slaughter houses allowed which appear abused with wanton cruelty bordering on torture. Their separate schools and different curriculum places the Muslim children at a distinct disadvantage.

      I should have added the vile acceptance of the Muslims in Sri Lanka the beheading of totally innocent Rizana Nafeek by the Saudis as they did not wish to offend them their main money providers. Their money would rather build more mosques for which there is no demand. I am not sure if it is the Muslims’ superiority complex or inferiority complex that they do not wish to assimilate. E.g. the Kandy Perahera or Wesak celebrations, all major religions participate but the conspicuous absentee are the Muslims
