Unless Sinhalese Extremists Are Brought To Book All Talks Of Peace Will Remain Dreams

By Latheef Farook –

Defense Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s statement on what he described as the “emergence of Muslim extremism” has shocked and dismayed the island’s besieged and helpless Muslim community.

Addressing a defense seminar at Galadari Hotel on Tuesday 3 September Mr.Gotabaya Rajapaksa stated that the country was faced with an uphill task of tackling Sinhala hardliners as well as Muslim extremists. He added that “it has been observed that there are some foreign groups that wish to encourage Sri Lankan Muslims to identify themselves more with the global Muslim community, thereby reducing their integration with the rest of the population. It is a known fact that Muslim fundamentalism is spreading all over the world and in this region”.

Sinhala extremists playing havoc in the country with official patronage is common knowledge. However the question is who are these Muslim extremists? According to Muslims of all walks of life extremism is nonexistent among them and such allegations only serve to encourage Sinhalese extremist elements to continue their mayhem pitting Sinhalese against Muslims.

Defense secretary’s statement comes at a time when Sinhalese extremists spearhead an extremely dangerous campaign demonizing Islam and Muslims, attack mosques, religious schools, Muslim shrines, Muslim owned business establishments, forces Muslim students to worship Sinhalese teachers in predominantly Sinhalese schools and  many such crimes causing  fear and insecurity among Muslims.

The island’s Muslim community, as once pointed out by former Chief Justice Sarath N Silva, has been the most peaceful of all the three communities. However they suffered a great deal due to racism of the two major communities. Muslims did not come yesterday on visit visas to Sri Lanka .They have been integral part of the island’s society ever since they settled down as peaceful traders more than 1000 years ago.

Like all other peace loving citizens they also expected since May 2009 some relief after the end of the 30 year war which subjected them to immense sufferings. Instead they were harassed, attacked and sidelined.

These Sinhalese extremists have also become the biggest impediment for   integration of communities .The ongoing overall Sinhalisation, by and large, excluded and sidelined Muslims from government, semi government, armed forces and even private sector establishments. Now some Sinhala traders are using extremist elements, as pointed out by JVP leader Somawansa Amarasinghe, to crush the Muslim trade.

The patience with which Muslims endure all these political, religious, economic and cultural onslaughts on them remains the best testimony for their peaceful and tolerant nature. The frightening question is how long?

Today the island’s centuries old social fabric is senselessly destroyed by Buddhist extremists poisoning the minds of mainstream Sinhalese. The need of the hour is to stop their attacks on Muslims to prevent the widening gap between communities.

Muslim organizations do have religious, social, economic and cultural links with similar organizations abroad. However there is hardly a Muslim organization which poses threat to the security of the country.

Muslims suspect that these extremists suspected to have been funded by anti Muslim forces such as Israel and it’s US and European partners, have been behind this baseless allegation as it suits their foreign and local masters global agenda to justify their global military designs on Muslims countries.

Even in the region Muslims remain victims of vicious propaganda. There is hardly a country in the region where Muslims resorted to extremism though they were subjected to atrocities and brutalized.

In the international scene peaceful Muslims were forced to take to arms to assert their dignity and rights from Israeli, US and European invaders who have destroyed one Muslim country after another, killing millions of innocent Muslims and pushing many   millions of Muslims who once led very peaceful and happy life into refugee camps to suffer in appalling conditions.

In the aftermath of the collapse of former Soviet Union in 1989 and the US emerging as the sole super power with unprecedented military might in known human history, people all over, sick and tired of wars, hoped and prayed for peace and harmony.

Unfortunately for humanity, the economy of US, having hoodwinked the world as champion of democracy, freedom, justice and human rights, has been based on wars, senseless destructions and ruthless exploitations. Thus the corporate conglomerates from weapons industry, oil companies, banking and finance industry, media and Jewish lobbies to other forces which rule the West and thus the world had their own agenda.

On the other hand under the new international order Israel and its US and European partners wanted to divide Middle East into bits and pieces to create small states to ensure the supremacy of Israel, the international pariah came into being over the blood, flesh and dead bodies of Palestinians in the robbed Palestinian lands by manipulating US, Europe and the United Nations.

The 9/11 tragedy, suspected as the work of Israel’s secret service Mossad in coordination with FBI, was ruthlessly exploited as a launching pad for unleashing a ferocious global campaign demonizing Islam and Muslims to justify their military designs on Muslim countries.

One after the other US, Israel, Britain, France and other North Atlantic Treaty Organization, NATO, member countries invaded   Muslim countries  from Bosnia, Kosovo, Chechnya, Albania, Afghanistan, Algeria, Iraq, Somalia, Libya and now Syria  while Pakistan too being turned into living hell .The latest being the bombing of gold and uranium rich West African country of Mali. Perhaps Iran is next in their agenda.

The people, Muslims, killed by US-NATO bombs and weapons are of no concerned and their deaths don’t exist to the war mongers. They are blank and not even recorded as being dead as stated by American General Tommy Franks that “we don’t do body counts”.

Peaceful Muslims worldwide  who had seen their countries destroyed, their loved ones raped, tortured and slaughtered in their presence have taken to arms to sacrifice their lives to win back their rights and  take revenge on the  perpetrators of these heinous crimes.

War mongers and their media label them as terrorists. Islamophobia spread like wildfire and the frightening situation prompted professor Wolfram Richter, the Economic Professor of the University Dortmund, to express his fear that” the next holocaust would be against Muslims”. However that holocaust is now underway at the rate Muslim countries were turned into wastelands.

Thus rivers of Muslim blood flow all over Middle East while Western weapons industry thrives on the misery of Muslims.

The so called western free media, owned predominantly by weapons industry, fools the world including countries like Sri Lanka where the mainstream media depends on this very same western media for its coverage of international events.

This very same Israel which has been sneaking into Sri Lanka time and again, since 1950s, only to have been expelled, found a foothold in the island now. The island’s growing ties with Israel have become cause for serious concern among many especially within the Muslim community which fears that this may spell disaster for them.

Unfortunately most politicians, journalists, businessmen and others who hob knob with   their new found Israeli friends do not know who they are, what their crime records are, what is their Nazi type background and what they are capable of. All what the Israelis do wherever they go is to carefully screen and pick up anti Muslim elements to unleash violence against Muslim and pit communities against each other to flourish in violence.

For example, New Delhi based fortnightly “Milli Gazette” of 1-15 December 2009, stated that Hindu extremist organizations get lot of money from Israel via Europe to kindle communal riots against Muslims. Indian Home Ministry disclosed that in 2008 alone RS 7877 crores were received by Hindu organizations which were used for subversive activities in the form of riots, bomb blasts and creating circumstances detrimental to Muslims. The report added that “investigation give credence to the belief that Hindu terrorists are poisoning the socio-political atmosphere in India and Israel is helping them through financial help”.

In his famous prophecy at the Constitutional Convention of 1787 in Philadelphia, Benjamin Franklin,one of the founding fathers of United States warned of the danger of allowing indiscriminate migration of Jews to United States .He said;

”  We must protect this young nation from an insidious influence and impenetration. That menace, gentlemen, is the Jews. If you do not exclude them from   United States in the Constitution, in less than 200 years they will have swarmed here in such great numbers that they will dominate and devour the land, and change our form of government, for which we Americans have shed our blood, given our lives, our substance, and jeopardized our liberty. Our descendants will be working in the fields to furnish them substance, while they will be in the counting houses rubbing their hands. I warn you, gentlemen your children will curse you in your graves”.

When asked to be careful not to upset the Americans by his then foreign minister, Shimon Peres, former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, oscillating between life and death for almost a decade said. “We, the Jewish people control America and the Americans know it.”-October 3 2001.

True to Benjamin Franklin’s prediction Jews are the real rulers of US today.   It is the Jewish lobbies make and unmake governments and it is they decide who should be in the White House. American congress is called the Israeli occupied area as most congressmen are in the payroll of Jewish lobbies and serve the interest of Israel than their own country. No American dare speak about Jewish hold on America.

Now the question is what is the guarantee that the Israelis would not do the same thing in Sri Lanka.Can the island afford this risk?   It is in this context one ought to view the ongoing anti Muslim campaign in Sri Lanka and the plight of victimized Muslims.

The Israeli strategy has been to commit the worst of crime and project victims as perpetrators. This has been the policy of BBS and other extremist elements in the island. They attack Muslims and blame them as extremists.

The response of BBS to Mr. Gothabaya’s statement on the so called Muslim extremism is not something unexpected. Hailing Mr.Gothabaya Rajapaksa’s statement the BBS stated in a statement issued on 3 September following its executive committee meeting that;

“The BBS has considered this (statement of defense secretary) as an important victory in the ideological battle BBS waged against the Islamic extremism. It is the idea of BBS that this statement gives sufficient answers to all the political leaders and other forces who accused the BBS as a terrorist organization.  If the LTTE extremism had been identified 40 years ago, then the 40 year war would not have happened. In the same way, BBS says that if the Muslim extremism is not properly identified, then its effects will come into light in another 20 years. They thus see this revelation as a fortunate incident.BBS says that at a time telling the truth is not  part of politicians’ and state officials’ agenda, Mr. Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s bold speech must be admired by all the non extremist Sinhala, Tamil, Muslim and other ethnic groups.BBS further emphasizes that this statement can be considered as the first step in leading the country to become a peaceful place, defeating all forms of extremism including Muslim extremism”.Thus concluded BBS statement.

Under the circumstance it is worthy no note that this paradise of island was turned into one of the worst killing fields   due to racist politics of major political parties either to retain or to win power. Judging from the freedom with which Buddhist extremists attack minorities today the inevitable conclusion is   that we have not learnt any lesson from the 30 year ethnic carnage.

Under this chaotic political environment unless Sinhalese extremists are brought to book all talks of reconciliation, peace and stability will remain distant dreams. Mood among the Muslim community is one of frustration and a feeling of being abandoned. One thing is certain and the country is heading towards a period of instability to the detriment of all.

      Dear Lateef Farook,

      1. What you have in Sri Lanka, is a coward as the President, the Mahnda Rajapaksa. Why is he a coward. In Sinhala it is called Baya Gulla.

      Mahinda Rajapaksa is a coward. Are all politicians cowards?

      Mahinda Rajapaka is not doing his job of handling the law breakers, and the extremists, in order to push the racist agenda. If Sri Lanka was a large country, it would have been a global problem, like Al Queda with 300 million Arabs. In the other hand it not a major issue for outside interference, one the stage is set.

      With 20 million people in Sri Lanka, with 15 million “Sinhala” “Buddhists” , it is rather unfortunate a small fraction of racist”Buddhists” are controlling the President, who is a coward. It is a minor issue for the world, but a major issue for Sri Lanka.

      Look how Kamel Ataturk handled the Ulema and the Mullah in 1923 in Turkey. Very decisively.

      Mr. President, do not be a wimp, and deal with BBS and Sinhala Ravya Maras decisively, the way Kamel Atarurk dealt with those elements.

      If as GORA says there is “emergence of Muslim extremism” arrest those responsible using his notorious PTA, instead of spreading false propaganda to demonize the Muslim community.

      Government, including GORA, are doing or saying things to inflame the communities leading to disharmony to say the least.

      The thieves hanging on the government are in deep slumber sucking milk from the public coffers.

      May be this way they hope to achieve Sinhala Buddhist Sri Lanka.

    your opening paragraph “…..Defense Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s statement on what he described as the “emergence of Muslim extremism” has shocked and dismayed the island’s besieged and helpless Muslim community…”is an understatement.

      To a greater extent the world is now educated on the “..hands behind..” what is happening in front of our eyes…
      more of such articles should come out more frequently. Thanks.

      The best weapon the ” hands behind” have is disuniting the Muslims.

      “…helpless Muslim ….” . NEVER. Muslims will always have the help of All-Mighty. Their prayers are more powerful than the greatest human weapon.
      Muslims should also help themselves by uniting.

    The biggest enemy the Muslims and other minorities face is the RajaPox family, their proxy extremist groups and the Chinese. The writer mentions threats by NATO countries but is silent about what Russia, China and Iran are up to. Putin while making a big show of trying to stop hostilities in Syria, is also the biggest seller of arms to that country. The US, Britain, France, Russia and China who are permanent members of the UN security council are also the biggest arms supliers to the world. Trying to change the world is a bit of a big ask, but if the minorities work together and dont suck up to the RajaPoxsas’ and the UPFA the extremist proxies could be nullified. At future elections, the minorities need to use their votes for their own Tamil and Muslim parties and the UNP. The defeat of the UPFA and the RajaPoxsas’ will be a first step in defeating or at least nullifying Sinhala Buddhist extremism. People still cannot understand what kind of a threat the despotic RajaPox family is to every freedom loving moderate Sri Lankan. It’s still not too late to realise and do something about it.

      Percy Jilmart,
      Looking from a different angle,there’s some truth in what
      GORA is saying about Buddhist Extremism emerging as a
      result of Muslim extremism.The point here is that the
      whole of Buddhism among Sinhalese survives looking at the
      enthusiasm of Muslims following Islam in such wild
      confidence and full hopes.Not only religion,almost for
      everything else they have to look at somebody else for
      guidance and taken in that sense,GORA is right,yes,
      Muslims have taught them extremism in religion but the
      million dollar question then is,if this Muslim extremism
      is so dangerous,how come the imitators escape your
      yardstick?And Percy Jilmart,to believe that UNP would
      nullify the situation,is definitely sleep walking.
      I can only say one thing.Muslims are facing challenges
      world over for being Muslims only for one reason and that
      is,they are the last either to realize or to understand
      the role of religion in the shaping of modern world which
      is far beyond their thinking and inevitably forced to
      live with.Take it or leave it.

    These are some examples of how violent Buddhism is. God wants them to be heinous.

    Quran (2:191-193) – “And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief] is worse than killing… but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)”

    Quran (2:244) – “Then fight in the cause of Allah, and know that Allah Heareth and knoweth all things.”

    Quran (2:216) – “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.”

      There is no hiding behind the bush.

      Islam is a religion of “Middle path”. It teaches you to do good always and avoid bad things. Also to encourage the same among others without been selfish.

      It encourages to be merciful to all beings including Humans at all time. But also allows to defend your self against oppression or to declare war.

      Islam is the practical religion accepted to universal laws.

      “Those who suppress their anger, and forgive other people – assuredly, God loves those who do good.” (Quran 3:134)

      ” It is no virtue. That you turn your faces towards the east or the west, but virtue is that one should sincerely believe in Allah and the Last Day and the Angels and the Book and the Prophets and, out of His love, spend of one’s choice wealth for relatives and orphans, for the needy and the wayfarer, for beggars and for the ransom of slaves, and establish the Salat and pay the Zakat. And the virtuous are those who keep their pledges when they make them and show fortitude in hardships and adversity and in the struggle between the Truth and falsehood; such are the truthful people and such are the pious.” Quran (Surah Al-Baqarah, Verse 177)

    The last time Lateef Farook came in these pages bringing us the wisdom of his learning on how good Muslims and what a wonderful and peaceful religions Islam is many Muslim commentators themselves warned him
    his nonsense will bring disaster to them and asked him to cease his…. But the man persists – like many other Muslim “academics” in these pages.

    Farook says “according to Muslims of all walks of life, extremism is non-existent among them” almost without batting an eyelid. This is typical deception and mendacity calculated to treat readers as fools. Even presently different Muslim factions in Kattankudy and other parts of the Eastern Province are shooting, stabbing and hitting each other in their regular fights to control mosques and worshippers. The Police in these areas are pleading with their Colombo HQ to send more armed personnel as these fights are becoming habitual. Who is Farook trying to fool again? He then follows this up with the lie of Muslims in large numbers being in the Island for over 1,000 years. This subject is becoming a regular part of the Agenda in the usual Muslim devious historians – often quoting a tarnished Sinhala woman historian going under a Tamil name. The fear is soon Sinhala extremists will clamour Muslims do not belong here and must go to the Arab lands they speak so fondly of – that is, if they are welcome there. One ship-wrecked Orabi pasha and a single Ibn Batuta do not make multiple thousands of immigrants of the time.

    When he says “there is hardly a country when Muslims resorted to extremism” he exposes his mala fide intentions forgetting the true perpetrators of that crime against humanity on 9/11 and, even closer, that savage attack in Mumbai when Pakistani religious terrorists gunned down hundreds of innocent civilians returning home from work. That also included an entire little nursery of children and their teachers – targeted only because they were Jews.

    The man spews venom on the USA, Russia, the West and, predictably, against Israel and the Jews for all the “terrorism and extremism” in the world. He is probably shy to admit Assad in Syria is killing thousands of his own Muslim people using poison gas. Of course, to our friend 9/11 in New York was the work of Mossad and FBI, which is like Kudu Mervin claiming that poor Muslim Samurdi worker tied himself to the tree. And, the Coupe de grace is aimed at the Defence Secretary “unless Sinhalese extremists are brought to book all talks of peace and stability will remain distant dreams”

    What a Writer and what an academic. With friends like this the Muslim community under siege here need no enemies.

    Mr Latheef Farouk,

    I have heard similar stories that the Jews control the United States of America. A friend told me long ago that the Jews in America are like a Mafia crime family and the President of the US was their top hit man.

    But that is beside the point.

    Let us focus on Sri Lanka.

    I can see why Sri Lankan Muslims are shocked and dismayed by the Defense Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s reference to the “emergence of Muslim extremism”. But Mr Farouk, please take a moment to reflect on what I have got to say.

    You may or may not be aware the catalyst for recent anti Muslim activities in Sri Lanka was the ‘Halal’ issue. However concern and apprehension with regards to the Muslim intentions were building up long before that. The Muslim men were increasingly dressing like Arabs. In long garbs with a head piece that is so totally foreign in Sri Lanka. The Muslim women jettisoned the saris and salvar-kameezes and were donning this highly confronting ‘gonibilla’ (in place of a better word – no insult intended) dress. Some entry points to villages in Kathankudi have crests of crossed swords with Arabic lettering underneath. What does all this mean? If you say that these are not signs of moving towards extremism then what is. Were they bad Muslims before when the women wore saris with the tail end draped over their head and the men sarongs with a thoppi? Conversely are they suddenly true Muslims because they adopted the dress code of Byzantine Christians. If Muslims feel so strongly about adopting a totally alien culture don’t you think it is best for them go find residence in those far away countries.

    Then the Muslims go on building mosque after mosque after mosque. And by the side of such mosques almost always the so called Madrassas appear. Have you ever asked what kind of education they get in these Madrassas.

    By the way please reread what Dr Amir Ali has been saying in CT in the recent past.

      BBS rep,

      Why don’t you look at your own peoples changing culture and dress code? and fingering for some others dress code. Are they Buddhist in Sri Lanka not adopting to the western culture and dress code? Look at in the street how Buddhist women dress now a days and walk. Where is your traditional dress which women wear in Sri Lankan history in the past? Why they need to adopt to western dress code? Don’t you think if they want to live in American and Europe culture they should go and live there?
      It’s very funny that you don’t know what is happening in your own house and the own society and you are trying to correct what is happening in other societies and cultures.
      Saree and Salwar Kamis is not Sri Lankan dress code. Saree came from India and Salwar is from Pakistan (India). Why don’t you wear your Amuda and walk in the street? it is Sri Lankan dress code for men , and the Cheetha and the topless is the women dress code in Sri Lankan culture.
      Ask your Buddhist to wear the Sri Lankan dress code so we can ask others to also follow the same as they want to live in Sri Lanka.
      I need your reply……..

        It is time this Muslim going as Allan teach himself Salwar Kameez is an Indian dress worn by Indian women for centuries in Punjab, the UP and other Northern States. Pakistan was born only in 1947.
        The idiot must accept Western dress is now universal and even Arabs, whom he apes and vainly hopes will accept Muslims here as theirs, Arabs are increasingly found in Western clothes.

              Y and J are interchangeable. `Punjab’ can be written as `Punyab’. Punyab=Punya+ab means the land of Punya.

              Rigveda mentions Punya as a tribe in Punjab.
              Punjab must have been derived its name from Punya, which later was diversely interpreted as land of five rivers.

      From what I have observed, every muslim place of worship is fully occupied and we see a happening and growing community…on the other hand we have a top-heavy Buddhist community where saffron is more common than weeds in this agricultural country..it is becoming unsustainable..i.e. to host, teach and provide all things free to this over populated priesthood…people are increasingly loosing faith in our monks due to the insincere political patronage they receive and now the political abuse of these uneducated army of monks… Should we not focus on how to turn tables and make better our condition instead of swallowing saliva staring at Muslim women and Tamil intellectuals?

      1. The Vinaya Tipitaka, The Sutta Pitaka and The Abhidhamma Pitaka says nothing about the dress code for the lay people, the Upasakayas and Upasaka Ammas who follow Buddhism. What people wear is cultural, especially who are not Buddhists.

      2. Cultural practices change with the times, and the environment. Religion dogma, do not change with the times, the location and the environment. When the dogma changes, a new version, a new religion emerges, like Christianity, Protestantism, Shia -ism, Wahhabi-ism, Mahayana-ism, Buddhism etc.

      If you look at the Eskimos, they wear like Goni billas as well. It is environmental and cultural as well.

      3. BBS is a racist organization, not following the teachings of Buddha. In fact , they are following the teachings of Mara’s, and the Devadattas and the Cowardly Rajapaksas are tolerating these law breakers,Both Buddhist Dhamma and the Civil Law of the Land.

      4. The cultural practice of the Veddahs was amudaya and for women redda, Most villages, Sinhala Villages, who had to be outside and work in the fields adopted that. Read historical accounts of dresses in Lanka in colonial and pre-colonial times.

      5. The Halal issue was just an excuse by the BBS and the racists. Halal is required, according to the Islam religion, because the faithful have to believe All Life belongs to The God, Allah, and if to be eaten need Permission” from Allah, before taking the life of the Animal. Even executioners ask for that permission. It is kind of quality control, in that the meat was not from a dead animal days ago. It is my understanding that the Muslims always tried to eat Halal, Kosha or permitted food whenever they can, from the beginning of Islam. While not all all the Muslims follow this rule, some even drink alcohol, even though not permitted or Halal, there are many that do.

      6. The cultural issue of Sarong, Cap, Saree, Salvar Kameez, Abahya, “Goni Billa Dress”, Hijab, Nikab, Pants, Coats dresses etc, are all foreign to Sri Lanka, including the Saffron dress worn by Buddhist Monks.

      Sholds we ask Buddhist Monks to wear a Saffron Amude, in keeping with the culture?

      7. However, the fact remains that these practices promoted by the isolationist Wahhabis and and Wahhabi look alike other groups, have created cultural divisions, the Buddists, need to follow the Tipitaka, and not force the Veddah or the Villager out of his Amude or redda and the bear chests.

      Hey BBS rep. just grow up. At least they Gonibilla women are saved from the rapists, of the Resplendent Rape Island.

        Amarasiri,

        You do make some pertinent points as always.

        I agree the Buddhist clergy would be better off paying more attention to Buddha’s teachings than playing politics.

        At the end of the day there is no perfect religion or for that matter a perfect human. So why are we talking bad about another’s religion when we should focus on what is bad with our own religion.

        Take a moment to reflect on what Richard Dawkins said, “Bush and bin Laden are really on the same side: the side of faith and violence against the side of reason and discussion. Both have implacable faith that they are right and the other is evil. Each believes that when he dies he is going to heaven. Each believes that if he could kill the other, his path to paradise in the next world would be even swifter. The delusional “next world” is welcome to both of them. This world would be a much better place without either of them.”

        BBS according to you is a racist organization. You may be true and if that is so, aren’t all religious organizations racist?

          BBS Rep,

          I assume you represent the BBS “Theology”. However, what I see is anarchy and complete misrepresentation of the teachings of the Enlightened Buddha foe personal political gain, and the complete distortion of the Master’s teachings.

          The problem with religion and religious leaders is the perpetual franchise, and the self-appointment of the religious leaders, Monks, Priests and Mullahs at the top of the hierarchy, and promises of After Life, whether Nirvana, Nibbana, Rebirth, Samsara, Heaven, Hell, Limbo, Purgatory or other Myth, according to their theology to delver on certain beliefs.

          It is all about deception. The facts speak for themselves.

          BBS Rep, you are mixing up Buddhism with Sinhala Racism, in order to maintain the Monk Hegemony, courtesy of Monk Mahanama of Mahawamsa fame. Why is it that there are hardly any Tamil Buddhists in Sri Lanka? Why did the Buddhist Monks attack Tamils during the 1958 Tamil Riots? Is in in the Tipitaka?

          Both Al-Queda, George Bush, the Lier of WMD, and many, many others, including the current Wahhabis, Talibans, and of course BBS are all DEVIANTS, Myth believers and will only bring anarchy destruction and unhappiness. Do you know the 4-Noble Truths and the 8-Fold Path?

          This issue of the perfect religion was debated during Akbar the Great’s time 500 years ago.

          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akbar

          From the 15th century, a number of rulers in various parts of the country adopted a more liberal policy of religious tolerance, attempting to foster communal harmony between Hindus and Muslims.[113] These sentiments were earlier encouraged by the teachings of popular saints like Guru Nanak, Kabir and Chaitanya,[112] the verses of the Persian poet Hafez which advocated human sympathy and a liberal outlook,[114] as well as the Timurid ethos of religious tolerance in the empire, persisted in the polity right from the times of Timur to Humayun, (the second emperor of the mughal empire), and influenced Akbar’s policy of tolerance in matters of religion.[115] Further, his childhood tutors, who included two Irani Shias, were largely above sectarian prejudices, and made a significant contribution to Akbar’s later inclination towards religious tolerance.[115]

          When he was at Fatehpur Sikri, he held discussions as he loved to know about others’ religious beliefs. On one such day he got to know that the religious people of other religions were often bigots ( intolerant of others religious beliefs ). This led him to form the idea of the new religion, Sulh-e-kul meaning universal peace. His idea of this religion did not discriminate other religions and focused on the ideas of peace, unity and tolerance.

          Dear BBS Rep,

          “6. The cultural issue of Sarong, Cap, Saree, Salvar Kameez, Abahya, “Goni Billa Dress”, Hijab, Nikab, Pants, Coats dresses etc, are all foreign to Sri Lanka, including the Saffron dress worn by Buddhist Monks.”

          1. When we were teenagers and young men, almost all the women wore the saree, Sinhala, Muslim and Tamil. Older pious Muslim women. the ” Upasaka Ammas” did place the end of or middle of the saree over their heads, just like Hindu women did in India. However, younger Muslim women did not do that with their saree. One could not tell a younger Muslim Women wearing a saree from a younger Sinhala women wearing a saree. The younger Tamil women wore the “Pottu” on their forehead, and one could tell.

          2. Occasionally, a women, a Lady, typically a foreigner or a Burgher Lady, would wear pants. As young men we referred sarcastically, to such ladies as ” Paiya Nati Mahaaruru”, PNM, thanslate dto English as “Penis-Less Gentlemen”, PLM.

          3. How look at women in Sri Lanka, both Buddhist and non-Buddhist alike. Most belong to the PNM and PLM category. BBS Rep, what were you guys doing about it? Tape the PNM and PLM in the current tradition of the Resplendent Rape Island, “Rapere Insula” in Latin?

          4. Some young unmarried Muslim women did wear the Salwar Kameez alternately with the saree, but did not cover their heads. Unfortunately, the Wahhabi cultural and religious invasion has misguided and misdirected many Muslims, just like BBS has misdirected many Sinhala Buddhists from Buddhism.

          5. Even in the Middle East, Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Turkey, and even in Afghanistan in the 1960’s, it was secular and the religion was a private mater. Unfortunately, the Wahhabi virus has infected the ignorant, the idiots r follow their myths, which are not required in Islam.

          6. BBS Rep, do you want to emulate these Wahhabi idiots and waste your time and cause calamity and anarchy, not called for in the Tipitaka? Do you know how much time the Wahhabis are spending on religion, so that the Mullahs can maintain their hegemony, and the people are promised a good After Life with no proof?

          BBS Rep, what happened to the Middle Path of Buddha? Got replaced by Maraism and Racism? Would like to know your Theology and answer.

      then we wore saree, sarong – who’s culture is this. was it alien.
      then we wore trouser, shirt, denim, t-shirt – who’s culture is this. which alien brought it here.
      what about the yellow robe – who’s culture was it, what alien brought it here.

      who’s alien culture brought temples, dagabo’s, boo trees in every round-about.

      WHERE DO YOU DRAW THE LINE ?

      If we are to send all those who brought alien cultures, I am not sure whom we will have left..
      Since recent years tourism has been a growing thing.. People are becoming global. Tomorrow if all Americans want to where Saree will they call it alien culture ?

      Wasn’t your bosses kids dressed in alien clothes recently..

      “.. don’t you think it is best for them go find residence in those far away countries. ..” Statements like this are signs of intolerance and extremism should not be tolerated.

    The despicable tactics of the Sinhala-Buddhists in SL under the tacit patronage of the GOSL has, no doubt, created much unrest among the Muslim and Christian communities. The GOSL is playing a dangerous game, and they think they are in control off the BBS et al, but nobody can be sure of the outcome. The rabid and restless thugs of the Sinhala-Buddhist community feel that the time has come to push for a pure Sinhala-Buddhist nation; or at least reset the rules so that Hindus, Muslims, Christians and others will be in no doubt where they stand – as guest citizens in a Buddhist country.

    But some other points need commenting on:

    Buddhist scholars in the east have resurrected historical documents showing how a peaceful Indonesia was converted to the largest Muslim state in the world today. Explain to them, did it come about by accident or by design.

    In your article you give too much credence to the power of Israel and the Jewish lobby. The realpolitik of US and Europe getting involved in Arab affairs is primarily due to the fact that Saudi Arabia enjoy a mutually beneficial relationship with the US and are happy to have them keep ‘law and order’ in other Islamic states. Not for nothing do the Saudis keep their vast wealth with Wall Street and educate their pampered offspring by choice in the US.

    How do you account for the continuing emigration and asylum seeking of Muslims in the west? They should be heading for the more peaceful states of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf. Instead they are now becoming ‘problem’ communities in Europe and Australia.

    This whole topic is a can of worms and it is just unfortunate that a peaceful community like the Muslims of Sri Lanka now find themselves pushed into a corner. To run or to fight? I hope our island will not see another bloodbath before they see common sense.

        I am no Muslim Buddhist,

        “Its amazing, how Muslims who read the Koran (the most racist book on earth) five times a day call Sinhala Buddhists ‘RACIST”

        Does the Sinhala Buddhist fit into this category? Going by 1958 and 1983 Anti-Tamil riots, the data supports the accusation.

        There is no question that the mythological ideas of racism, caste and color differences in humans due to environmental factors have been exploited by one group to force their myths on others. This has been extended to include beliefs in religion with after-life myths.

        What is the definition of Racism?

        http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/racism

        Full Definition of RACISM

        : a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.

        Racism, also sometimes called racialism, is generally defined as actions, practices, or beliefs that reflect a worldview according to which members of a race share a set of characteristic traits, abilities, or qualities, such as personality, intellect, morality, or other cultural behavioral characteristics and which means that races can be ranked as inherently superior or inferior to others.[1][2][3]

        prophet’s Statement of the universal brotherhood in the last Sermon:

        O people, Remember that your Lord is One. An Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a black has no superiority over white, nor a white has any superiority over black, except by piety and good action (Taqwa). Indeed the best among you is the one with the best character (Taqwa). Listen to me. Did I convey this to you properly? People responded, Yes. O messenger of God, The Prophet then said, then each one of you who is there must convey this to everyone not present. (Excerpt from the Prophet’s Last Sermon as in Baihiqi)

    Latheef Farook,

    “Now the question is what is the guarantee that the Israelis would not do the same thing in Sri Lanka.Can the island afford this risk?” So typical of you as a Muslim to bring the Jews into this. Why don’t we keep that ancient war – you know the one between the Jews, Muslims and the Christians aside for awhile. Okay?

    Muslim extremism is on the rise. You can deny it all you want. I got a taste of it right in front of my house when I was harassed by some Muslims. These Muslims live in the same house owned by a close relation (very close) of a Muslim MP who was accused of harassing a high court judge sometime back plus there was a news article recently about this Muslim MP’s house being searched for weapons.

    I hope the BBS and the Defense Secretary searches all Muslim homes who have families that have been accused of causing destruction to the safety of the country as well as to its people.

    Well, I think “Moslem extremists” he alludes to are perhaps groups such as lashkar-e-taiba who conducted a brazen daylight attack on Mumbai recently. I am sure these comments are based on chatter from intellligence networks that are mostly not in the public domain. I can understand how an ordinary Moslem can be quite shocked by these remarks.

    Sri Lankan Moslem population is indeed very progressive compared to Tamils. What this does is that it brings awarenenss to an issue. Moslems can be vigilent of elements that will act in a way detrimental to its future well being.

    Latheef Farook always venture out to attack the Sinhala Buddhists and the Govt to give a helping hand to the Separatists and their cheer squad lead by the TNA and its leader Sambandan.

    Latheef must bave been in a deep slumber for 30 years before Nanthkiadal

    Muslims were chased out and massacred in hundreds in their Homelands.

    No Muslim has been killed by Sinhala Buddhists for one hundred years.

    Even the Norwegian trained monks have been brought under control, before they could do any real damage.

    Yet Lathhef is prophesizing about Buddhists killing Muslims.in a country which has become a leading Economy in the region and the inhabitants are enjoying unprecedented peace and prosperity .

    Our Minister of Justice, who is a Muslim, says that rule of law has broken down in Sri Lanka. Isn’t it unprincipled for him to hang on to the ‘job’ after uttering this several weeks ago?

    There are several Muslims hanging on like leeches to the government without raising a finger about the atrocities committed on Muslims.

    I think it’s more useful to your community if you write about how Muslims can handle this serious problem.

      Thiru,

      Majority of Buddhists in Sri Lanka are close with Muslims, but not with Tamils (Hindus). Many Muslims in Sri Lanka are blood relations of Sinhalese. But few people voice like BBS, RB, JHU, SR voice against Muslim extremism not for Muslims. Even many monks voiced for support of Muslims but nobody voiced support for Tamils never, because they know Tamils are opportunists.
      So, why should Muslims worry about Muslim ministers voice for support? There are many Sinhalese ministers voice support for Muslims always, even I have seen some Tamil MP’s also raised the voice for Muslims.
      As far as I know there is no problem for the Muslims in Sri Lanka by Buddhist especially….but there are some political play and it’s not for long.

        Your talking nonsense! The Sinhala Buddhists rank the Sri Lankan communities as per below:

        1. Sinhala Buddhists
        2. Tamil Hindus
        3. Sinhala Christians
        4. Tamil Christians
        5. Muslims

        As you can see both Christianity and Islam are Abrahamic religions, which are alien to Buddhism and Hinduism. As long as the Tamils do not demand separatism, the Sinhala hard liners will not bother with the Tamil Hindus. But they are dead against the Evangelical Christian conversions and Islamic Arabic influences in Sri Lanka.

        I am a Secularist and believe in separation of religion and politics; this cannot be achieved with Sinhala Buddhist insecurity.

          “As long as the Tamils do not demand separatism, the Sinhala hard liners will not bother with the Tamil Hindus.”

          As it stands, Sinhala/Buddhists are determined to hand over Tamil Eelam on a silver platter even if the Tamils refuse to accept it.

          “As you can see both Christianity and Islam are Abrahamic religions, which are alien to Buddhism and Hinduism.”

          Once upon a time Buddhism and Hinduism were alien to my people.

          “I am a Secularist and believe in separation of religion and politics; this cannot be achieved with Sinhala Buddhist insecurity.”

          Fear is Sinhala/Buddhist problem which cannot hold the people to ransom. Separation of religion and power is fundamental to any functioning democracy.

          Insecurity is their state of stupid mind hence the Sinhala/Buddhists may go for theocracy.

      Thiru, this article under reference says it all on the Muslim dynamic, both locally and internationally. Always there are two sides to a story, and one needs to understand the causes and effects to truly understand the ground reality before arriving to conclusions. Those Muslims from nations affected by injustice, discrimination and US bias towards Israeli aggression, have collectively mounted attacks on US interests to bring notice to the world of their plight.

      In SL the Muslim factor in a non starter, but the war weary Secretary of defense is looking for new reasons to keep his ‘hero’ image to last a little longer and not become lack luster. So he now looks for new enemies. His motto is ‘Lets get trouble double, if there is none, let’s create one’. This is an insatiable hunger born out of lust for power, control and greed. He is an ex army man, and only knows how to think like one. ‘Battle cry’ for him makes him ‘at home’, unused to thinking civilian.

      As for why Rauff Hakeem is unwilling to put his neck out for the sake of Muslim cause and remains in government, is because if he does, it will not do him nor the community any good. There are lessons to learn from the past, when the TULF leader resigned his Parliamentary seat and then no one was there to raise community woes in Parliament, which then gets only one-sided. We don’t want that to happen. It is always better to stay and fight, as they will not miss him if he abdicates on principles. He is doing the best he can to raise issue, we have seen instances where he has openly criticized and blamed the hoodlums unequivocally, spoken on public platforms with direct reference to statements made by GR, and even appraising the UNHRC High Commissioner and handing over a dossier (which probably includes a chronology of events that took place, on religious intolerance). So he IS doing his bit, but in a very subtle way. So lets appreciate that of him.

      In this trying time, we Muslims need patience and prayer for Divine hand to help us to ride out the storm. So far it has been coming, and we are still remain intact. If we react too soon, the Muslims in the country will only fall further into a quagmire, for which no outside (International) help will be forthcoming, and cannot be expected, mostly due to the negative fallout of what is happening in the global arena. But this can only attract mercenaries willing to do Jihad for the cause of Islam. Only at that time, will what GR claims now can be justified – we have a foreign brand of Muslim extremism.

    The cat out of the bag. Gota is trying to drag or link our country SL with the global war on terrorism that the International community is now faced with. He wants to become a world policeman, thru building up his own personal agenda to have a say on how best it should be tackled. Using his ‘seemingly vast’ experience and ‘cock-a-hoop’ knowledge in subduing the once ferocious LTTE might by bombing them wholesale, (including innocent men, women and children mercilessly caught in the crossfire, et all) wiping them out to extinction, he now wants to see more action and is now ready to take on the Al-Qaeda’s and Talibans of the world. The only way he can do that is by identifying with such extremism with Muslims living in his own country SL as having terrorist connections including links to those terror outfits. So he cooks up an imaginary enemy, checks them out for weapons by sending army goons as ‘grease yakkas’, and once he knows it is safe, now this – the monk brigade to defile and create mayhem and drag or tempt the peaceful Muslims population to respond violently, so he can take them on, and thus justify his massive military budget, including his final goal, to gain credence and acceptance in the International community. But his gun is not firing. Pus wedilla.

Israelis have tremendous influence on the US is well known, which is why even the Saudis, the Qataris, the UAE Sheiks entrust all their big investment with Jewish-controlled banks and finance institutions in the USA while bullshitting anti-Israel epithets to fool the idiotic Islamic world.
      Saudis have always had the fear Iran will decide to attack the Saudis in that behind the scene Shii-Saudi hatred of 1,400 years. That is why
      that Wilikeals confidential cable exposed the Saudi King surreptitiously asking the Israelis to “destroy the head of the serpent (Iran)”

        It seems for the time being Yankees are allowing Saudis and their Wahhabism and their Jihadis to have an upper hand in all the trouble spots or is that a tactic to get Muslims to go mad and get them burn each other eventually.

        But you always keep forgetting the Israeli reference to us SLs’ as monkeys who came down from trees, wanting to sell industrial type washing machines to our visiting military vendors as radar surveillance equipment, and worse, training the SL army soldiers and the LTTE combatants at the same time in two different places, both going at the same time on their own soil. You bloody well deserve what they dish out. Another form of hero worship. We Muslims don’t need them for our survival. You need them more as your lifeguards, and don’t canvass us to accept them. We know who they are, and what atrocities they committed on Muslim Palestinian soil.

        The Shiit sects started after 200-300years later the Prophet Muhammad death. So it is not 1400y. You should learn the history before commenting anything.

      Marwan,

      I will tell you the reason behind the attacks on Muslims: It is simple; Sinhala Buddhist extremists (MARA included according to Lee Kuan Yew) want to make Sri Lanka into a Sinhala Buddhist State.

      MARA junta believes they have defeated the Tamils by defeating the LTTE and committing genocide of 147,000 innocent men, women and children.

      They have grabbed Tamil lands and settled with Sinhalese from the South. Muslim land is not spared either. Tamil names of villages and roads are changed to Sinhala names.

      Several Hindu temples in the North-East are destroyed and Buddhist temles or Stupas built. with army and government support.

      Thousands of Tamils are converted to Sinhala Buddhists forcefully. Tamil women are either raped and killed or forcefully married off to Sinhala soldiers. Abortion is performed forcefully on Pregnant Tamil women (Groundviews).

      In summary, structural genocide of Tamils follows physical genocide.

      Watch the latest No Fire Zone Movie through Google to get more gruesome details.

      They have been working on Tamil genocide for 65 years, now they think the job is well done, and nearing completion.

      I can assure you that the same things will happen to Muslims, it is only a matter of time. You will remember me when that happens in full swing.

      Pray Allah to stop this genocidal onslaught.

        Thiru, I believe in every word you write to be true, and our prayers are with you, and your folks. No one is blind nor ignorant not to know what is going on at ground level. It is pathetic to say the least.

        After winning the war, the next decent thing to do should have been to invite all the affected parties to the conflict, make peace, and assure confidence to resolve all outstanding issues, and immediate action to bring normalcy to those affected on the ground, provide for electricity, rebuild homes, hospitals, community centers and schools, vital for the return to normalcy. Also every effort should have been made to win their hearts and minds as a responsible and caring government to its citizens. But everything they have done thus far is quite the opposite. Not the least of which is grand displays of ‘Hero’s Day’ and anti Tamil sentiments, year after year to really rub it in. This is the level of arrogance and haughtiness they display, and we Muslims too are quite wary of it, specially being in the minority. It is true of what you say that coming colors is no good, but there is nothing we could do, except shed all our differences and unite as one, then brace for the worst. You cannot expect anything good to come from these narcissistic suckers.

        I heard recently that there were some Buddhist extremist connected person selling fruits near the mosques only on Fridays after prayers. After few inquiries the persons have gone missing.

        The probability of selling something to a Muslim on Friday after prayers is almost 100%. someone was exploiting this situation. wander what was inside those fruits.

    first of all it’s an utmost requirement to curtail the emergence of muslim terrorism. we all should take measures to eradicate muslim terrorism at any cost. it doesn’t matter even if we need to kill million of muslims to eradicate muslim terrorism. it comes in many forms such as halaal, mushrooming of praying huts, goni billa clad women/men/terrorists/what n not, forced conversions, staggering breeding, drugs smuggling…..etc.

      @ela kolla, you sound more like a baya gulla. Ayman has given you you a fitting response. What a load of bunkum you write? Where do you see Muslim terrorism in SL? Halal issue is not a terrorist issue but a food issue to satisfy religious requirement. We know you will eat anything offered free without checking its source. Even human, carrion, bush meat, pork, bacon and even substandard meat. You don’t place value on quality and purity. Well, we Muslims are different. Far ahead of your class. As such, we place premium sanctity in the taking of life for meat consumption, and that is what makes it perfectly acceptable (Halal) for eating and drinking. You don’t like it, keep away from it. Instead, you keep your own butchers to stab, strangle, mutilate or beat the hell out of your animals to wrench its life and enjoy its meat. Who cares.

      All the rest on killing millions of Muslims to wipe out terrorism are just hate talk unworthy of a decent response. Your govt. killed thousands of innocent Tamils calling them terrorists, now they are plotting and planning, thru a government in exile, to invade and take what they claim to be legitimately theirs. Just you watch and see. By the way, are you any close associate or a relative of BayaGota the goon? You sound like him.

    I say even the hardest of the hard-line Sinhala Buddhist who read Tripitake or Dhammapada daily is an absolute moderate than a peace talking good Muslim who read the Koran five times a day. Why do I say that?

    You need only type ‘thereligionofpeace’ in any search engine and read ‘hate speeches’ and ‘violence verses’ in the Koran. You cannot find anything like that in tripitake.

    Writer Latheef says, “According to Muslims of all walks of life extremism is nonexistent among them ….” I challenge this man to go to Google and type ‘Wahhabism, Abdullah, Rah’. Then read the first article that appears there written by Stephen Schwartz and Irfan Al-Alawi
    for Folksmagazine [India] on 18th July 2012 and answer charges written therein.

      You will never learn nor want to know that Islam is a peaceful religion, that does not promote violence, except only when it comes under attack, and the practice of their religion is endangered. Why? Because it goes against everything you believe after reading from Islamophobic web sites, and keep repeating like a parrot what they write and believe to be true.

      The word Islam itself means ‘peace’, not ‘piece’ as in ‘a piece of your flesh’, but ‘Peace’ as in ‘Peace in mind and body’. For you, the latter will satiate your thirst, like everything else you believe in. What you refer to in the Quranic verses which talks of ‘killing the Kuffars’ refers to times when Muslims were at war with the unbelievers who were persecuting them on their return to their homeland in Mecca from Medina. After much forbearance, the order came to fight back and claim their rightful place to their birthplace, as they were now in the majority. There were hypocrites posing as Muslims, some were plotting and scheming to tempt division and destroy the Muslim unity, and some others were ridiculing. passing wicked remarks and just poking fun at Muslim’s expense, which came to intolerable. It was then decided that they (unbelievers) must either convert to Islam, or pay ‘Jizya’ or Tax as protection money and remain in their homes, or of neither is agreeable, be killed as enemy combatants, as in any declared war situation. So what is wrong with that? It seems perfectly in order. But you take only part of this whole episode, (the killing of Kuffars or unbelievers), completely out of context, and flog it to your hearts content, to connote barbarism with Islam. What a sick mind you7 must be having.

      In war situations there are rules of engagement, treaties to be respected, safeguard of rights of captured enemy combatants, their women and children, provide care and protection to widows, providing for and looking after destitute, and all this requires laws which must be followed, and Islam has it all. Unlike many other religions which have nothing of the sort, absolutely nothing on marriage (eligibility of marriage partners in terms of their relationships) and divorce laws (waiting period before re-marrying), inheritance laws (nothing called ‘last will’ in Islam, as wealth and property distribution of the deceased is already stipulated in the Islamic Sharia Law), and the list goes on and on. We Muslims put these laws into practice on our everyday lives and that makes a big difference.

        Reasons to prove that ISLAM is a PEACEFUL RELIGION.

        Muhammad launches his own Crusades.
        Muhammad unjustly executes around 600 male Jews and enslaves the women and children.
        Muhammad in his Quran promises sensuous Gardens for martyrs dying in a military holy war.
        Muhammad aggressively attacks Meccan caravans.
        Muhammad in his Quran commands death or the cutting off of hands and feet for fighting and corrupting the land.
        Muhammad assassinates poets and poetesses.
        Muhammad in his Quran commands that the hands of male or female thieves should be cut off.
        Muhammad in his Quran permits husbands to beat their wives.
        Muhammad commands in his Quran that adulterers and adulteresses should receive a hundred lashes.
        Muhammad nicknames his weapons.

        Tabari (AD 839-923) is an early Muslim historian who is considered largely reliable by scholars today. In fact, the State University of New York Press selected his history to be translated into 38 volumes. (We use The Last Years of the Prophet, trans. Ismail K. Poonawala, 9:153-55.)

        In the context of the list of Muhammad’s assets at the end of his life (horses, camels, milch sheep, and so on), Tabari records the nicknames of Muhammad weapons.

        Muhammad nicknames three swords that he took from the Jewish tribe Qaynuqa after he banished them from Medina in April 624: “Pluck Out,” “Very Sharp,” and “Death.” Two other swords from elsewhere are named: “Sharp” and “That is wont to sink” (presumably into human flesh). After his Hijrah or Emigration from Mecca to Medina in 622, he owned two swords called “Sharp” and “Having the vertebrae of the back.” This last sword he collected as booty after his victory at the Battle of Badr in March 624.

        Next, Muhammad took three bows from the Qaynuqa tribe and named them as follows: “Most conducive to ease, or wide,” “white,” and “of nab wood” (species of tree from which bows are made).

        The name of a coat of mail implies “ampleness” or “redundant portions,” probably because Muhammad was portly (cf. Ibn Ishaq, Life of Muhammad, trans. Guillaume, p. 383).

        Finally, even Muhammad himself has a nickname. After Tabari lists the positive ones, he matter-of-factly provides one that is not so positive: “The obliterator.”

        Muslim apologists may object that Tabari is not authoritative (except when he shows Muhammad as heroic or victorious) and that he is not on the same level as the Quran and some hadiths (words and deeds of Muhammad outside of the Quran). This is true. But Muslim apologists still must answer why such a tradition of naming weapons developed about Muhammad. After all, later, unauthoritative traditions about Christ developed, but they do not show him even owning weapons, let alone naming them. The answer to this question about Muhammad is found in the next nine reasons.

        This article explains Christ’s attitude about swords more thoroughly, as does this one. Certainly he never fondled swords or nicknamed them, displaying them proudly, delighting in them.

        Thus, violence sits at the heart of early Islam—in the life of Muhammad. Islam is therefore not the religion of peace.

          Very good effort Jim Softy. You are on an the world wide arena. More people who read this scum, will want to investigate the truth about all of it. This will definitely help the Muslim cause to create the kind of attention that we need, to know the truth about ‘TRUE ISLAM’. You know what effect 9/11 had on the growth of Muslim population in US? Now standing at 7 million and 2500 Mosques.

          By the way, just to add more spice. Japan, predominantly famous as a
          Buddhist country, although Shintoism is its main religion, will send its first group of Japanese Muslims on Hadj this year. Allahu Akbar. An Egyptian young man, now a Japanese citizen and speaks fluent Arabic has successfully convinced Saudi authorities to issue Hadj visas to 200 members of the Japanese Muslim community, and will personally take this Group as their Leader. Isn;t that wonderful?

            Do not lie Marwan. Islam was thought to have first come to Japan in the early 1900s when Muslim [Edited out] were escaping Russian expansionism. Today, Muslim population in Japan is estimated around 100,000 at best. However according to essayist Michael Penn, 90% of Muslims are foreign and about 10% are ethnic. Penn states, “The Japanese government does not keep any statistics on the number of Muslims in Japan. Neither foreign residents nor ethnic Japanese are ever asked about their religion by official government agencies”.

        You ended up your harangue with “We Muslims put these laws into practice on our everyday lives and that makes a big difference.” To say it all in short, for we unbelievers, this is where all the Muslim problems lie.

        You Muslims have trampled on minority rights in every country you have become the majority. Look at Egypt, the democratically elected government had put strictures on 10% Coptic Christians who has been there since long before PBUH Muhammad was born. And that is the situation in every country where Muslims have become the majority. Count the number of properly established Churches (not the tin sheds or meeting places turned pray houses) that were burned and flattened this year.

        In Sri Lanka you Muslims were a small minority just a few decades back. We Sinhala Buddhist majority embraced two children to a family policy to control population growth in this small island, but what did you Muslims do. While Sinhalas and Tamils fight their war, you started to bread like rabbits with an aim to make this country Muslim. And the Muslims have now passed Sri Lankan Tamils and become the largest minority of 10%.

        Gonibilla attire that wasn’t there few year back is visible everywhere in Sri Lanka. Not just Gonibilla even head the scarf is banned in France and many European countries now. You have started using our democratic and egalitarian constitution to conspire and force halal on us, use hooters in your mosques five times a day every day and many other alien things here to annoy us. That is quite the opposite of Egypt isn’t it? 10% of the population are forcing their will on 90% others.

        As you said Muslims have used their scriptures either to convert ‘unbelievers’ to Islam, or pay ‘Jizya’ or Tax as protection money and remain in their homes, or of neither is agreeable, be killed naming them as enemy combatants. That was in the past but we can see the aim of Muslims is the same today. Fortunately, Christians have become Human Right protectors now, and the barbaric Muslims cannot repeat any of those vile things nowadays. So, Saudi Arabia, the most backward country does suppress basic human rights of guest workers in different ways. Workers are not even allowed to keep a Ganesh, Buddha or Jesus statue and warship it. So much for Muslim egalitarianism and Sinhala extremism, Marwan and Latheef Farook.

          There are flashpoints not only in Egypt but everywhere in the world between various religions, factions within those religions, right throughout history. Some of it is not due to mainstream Muslim majoritarion rule trying to crush minority rights as you suggest. Far from it. There are many places in the world (if you care to investigate) where minority religious groups peacefully co-exist within Muslim majority governments, and are looked after and protected. But the scenario changes when it comes to 100 percent Muslim countries, where foreign or alien religions are not welcome to establish their own versions of religious ideologies to influence their inhabitants. That is because those who migrate to those Muslim countries are on temporary term job visa and not for permanent residency or become citizens. So you have a grouse on that issue.

          The period I refer to (in my previous bid) happened during the Prophets time, in tough conditions, being persecuted by a minority group, when Islam was ‘new born’ and trying to survive and establish itself as the new religion. Drastic action was necessary to stop them (Muslims) being persecution, and protect the new converts to Islam. You fail to note the difference in circumstances and generalized it to ‘Muslims don’t tolerate minorities, when they are in majority’. Firstly, they were given the choice to convert to Islam or leave to another place, and if that did not happen, the second choice came into effect which was the compulsory ‘Tax’, and if that too was disregarded, then the third choice, to be considered enemy combatants. These are tribal rules in war circumstances, and I agree, this is not something that could be applied to modern day – 21st century war scenarios. Be it for Muslims or otherwise.

          Your mention of Christian established human rights, which to me is a farce or to put it more mildly, is a replica of sorts, since it is already encoded within the religion of Islam as Sharia (divine law from our Creator Himself) established from time immemorial and resurrected 1400 years and a bit more in a desert region of Saudi Arabia. If the religion of Islam is followed in due diligence, then there is no need for any watchdogs to dictate terms on how it must be administered. All these ‘Rights Organizations’, like Human Rights, Women’s Rights, Children’s Rights, Animal Rights, Economic and Social Rights, Education Rights, Oh, there are tons of them ‘Rights’ all over the World, and its only bound to grow, are all ‘Man made’ money making ventures. Some are outright dumb, some opportunistic, some sinister, some going nowhere, but all for the kill, to survive in a challenging environment and to be taken seriously. So please don’t tell me about their seriousness to solving our problems.

          Patriot,

          In France they did not ban head scaff….they ban only veil(face cover) that is also only in public places. In France face covering Muslims are very few and still they used to wear the veil, there is no problem at all. Head scaff can not be banned in European countries because in winter mostly all the women should wear the same.
          Regarding Saudi Arabia may be they are backward but economically very rich still majority people love their king, and the king is doing the very good job for the people now a days. Unless the democratic country like Sri Lankan Buddhist rulers. Since 1948 Buddhist have been ruling and looting this country and what progress you got it compared to the world today? We are very much backward now lot of unemployment the Universities lacking of facilities and education becoming non standard. Our national Budget made only for looting.
          Regarding Saudi Arabia check their recent Budget for the health and Education etc….they spent now a days billions of dollars for that and they are fast growing. Yesterday, I read the Saudi news that they are planning to investment of Trillions of dollars with USA joint venture in KSA. Many Europeans and Americans are coming for employment to KSA now and even they respect their culture. Once this Trillion dollar investment starts many Europeans and American will arrive for employment to Saudi because TAX free. You know yesterday I spoke to one of our Business partner from Holland, he says almost 50% from his salary he pays tax, and he is ranking the higher post and except salary nothing is being paid to him (accommodation etc). Princess noura University can accommodate more than 50000 women students and this University made only for women. And there are many Universities under construction……
          So, Arab world is changing now…but we still sit and talk the rubbish RACIM. At least educate your children to live liberally accepting all the cultures religious faiths. And this message should be for all also for the rubbish Muslims. Once the country is developed people automatically adopt to the good culture because morally they will be busy in life and they don’t have time to listen to the rubbish racism. recently one of my friend told don’t sent children to the Dhamma school (Sunday School). Also you can read the same thing below link.

            Do you know that women never covered their faces in the territory of Hejaz, Saudi Arabia which includes Jeddah, Mecca, and Medina, before the Wahhabi takeover in the 1920s. Wahhabism or preaching by Muhammad ibn Abd al Wahhab changed all that. Objectives of Wahhabism were “to believe in Allah, enjoin good behavior, and forbid wrongdoing.” Enable to impose those objectives, Wahhabis interpreted the Koran and sunna very literally.

            Sri Lanka Muslims are fast turning to be Wahhabis. And Wahhabis cannot stand long standing moderate Sufi Muslims of Sri Lanka because their interpretation of Koran is different to that of Wahhabis. And we’ve seen Wahhabis resort to fanatical acts during the last few years.

            Wahhabi thugs have not only have attacked and destroyed Sufi mosques all over Sri Lanka but exhumed dead bodies of Sufi saints and burned over hundred and fifty houses of Sufi followers. Type ‘Wahhabism, Abdullah, Rah’ and Google to see it all in detail. This perhaps is the danger that Gota was talking about Muslim extremism, I suppose.

            Now I agree that Saudi monarch gave a fifth of the seats in the consultative body to women recently. But women in Saudi are still compelled to cover their full body and are not allowed to drive. Is that a progress for Alan. As for me I do not want that progress here in Sri Lanka. Now don’t get me wrong, I am not saying for a moment women should expose their full body to onlookers either.

              I am no muslim,

              Currently i am in Saudi Arabia for a Project and i work with mostly westerners. Have you ever visited to Saudi Arabia? Saudi Arabis never put a rule that women should cover the face in their Sharia Law. I know many women don’t cover the face here as well as many non-women don’t cover the head even and that is allowed here.
              I know who is Muhammad ibn Abd al Wahhab i have read his history. What he preached is exactly the good thing and he did not allow non-sense. Islam says worship only one GOD. Islam clearly shows Muslims should worship to Allah (GOD) not for the others. So, worshiping grave is not in Islam. Many religion says GOD is only one….i know it says in Hinduism, Judaism, Christianity etc…..Even in Buddhist philosophy you can believe the GOD nor not believe the GOD…but GOD will be one. And it says about maithrees to come to the Universe. But people don’t follow their scriptures that is the core problem today for all societies and even people don’t know their scriptures they never read it (Even scriptures are amended/modified)…..So big advantage for Priests, Monks, Mullas from all the religion and to fool the society.

              It’s not mandatory to follow the Saudi constitution for the Muslims all over the world. But as far as i know today the world is technological advance and anybody can learn anything. See today because of advance of technology web etc you talk about religion where did you learn all this from which university? It’s good that people should do research on religion that is what Islam wanted. Why people talk more about Islam because Prophet Muhammed is the most successful man on the Universe (You can refer Sir. Michael H. Heart book). You just forget about Muslims, because they are the most idiots on the earth, but Islam has many truths and that has been accepted many priests from other religions today.

              In Arabia before also women covered their face because this country has frequent sand-tom issues and that time this country had nothing no facilities at all. Islam never say women should cover their face but between some scholars there are interpretations, but it is not mandatory to follow it. as far as i know Quran never said women should cover their face but when it’s comes to women rights it is their choice. There are many designs for women when talk about dress code not like men. Women has many choices for them and they favor of dressing differently not like men. That is the reason Abaya also becoming a universal dress code for Muslim women all over the world. If you see the Arabic women they like to dress western dress code but western muslims are increasing to wear the Arabic Abaya culture So world is changing nothing to do by men on this case. Pls remember this is all women issue men should should not interfere on this. Because they never interfere on men issues. And women are becoming more educated then men today in the World. Even in Arabic countries women are more educated than men. that you can see practically if you visit here.

              GOTA wanted to keep Rajapaksa ruling for long in Sri Lanka so, he tries in deferent ways to create some issues between ethnic and for that reason easy way is to use monks. The monks are prostrated in Sri Lanka they have fed up with their life. They wanted to keep their monk hegemony because when people becoming more educated they don’t believe on this non-sense. Many monks wanted social life sex etc. The same think happening to Mullas as well. That is the reason the Mullas have been hired by CIA to do the job so Muslims becoming violent in many Muslim countries. But Sri Lankan’s are more educated people as majority…..So GOTA/ MARA knows that it is not easy to fool them. So they are trying with high-level efforts other wise it is not easy to fool the educated society.

              If you analyze and do the research about Rajapaksa family they are not real Buddhists. They are converted and mixed people from Catholic and malay. See the GOTA’s face even he looks like malay. MARA’s wife still is a Catholic. This Rajapaksa family converted to Buddhism for their Political gain so they can’t be a real Buddhists. My personal intension is when i want learn something about Buddhism i will never read anti Buddhist web sites, because i will never find the truth. So the same think if you want to know the truth about Islam you should not read an anti Islamic web sites, and it will confuse you always unless if you do work for generating money promoting Islamophobia. please remember religion is your own choice and load Buddha also said the same thing either you can follow him nor you can ignore him but you should find out the truth about universe.

              Islam says it never started from Prophet Muhammed, Islam started from the man who arrived to this universe. Prophet Muhammed is the final messenger of GOD. Islam accept the original bible and other scriptures which has come from GOD (If you believe in one GOD). But it clearly says before Quran the scriptures which sent to the universe all for the certain societies to follow. If the Muslim who don’t believe in Jesus, Moses, Abraham, Adam, Ishaak, Ismail etc (mentioned 25 in Quran and also 124000 prophets arrive to this universe) he is not a Muslim. Also islam says all the Human being born as same but after arrival to this universe they believe the GOD in different ways nor they don’t believe in GOD. See everybody believe in their faith. The real thing is After death only you will know which one is correct. That is reason you should learn the universe to understand it. This wikipedia and all human made it. It is not mandatory to believe that is all correct. The history of the worlds writings are just myth there is no proof. many things are lies nobody knows the truth. Human being is the most stupid on the Universe. that’s why it is easy fool them.

              I am no muslim,

              King Abdullah longtime back signed the approval for women driving issue. It is nothing to do with Islam or Sharia law. But do you know why it is pending yet? Even though 30 women sitting in their Shoura council and they are all mostly highly educated from western Universities. It is the Police traffic department don’t agree women driving approval yet, because highest road accident deaths recorded in the world is KSA. So, this 30 women also agreed for their opinions. Now they are progress of fixing security cameras and safety systems all over the kingdom, so very soon they will release approval for women driving rights.

              But basically all Arabic countries women drive except KSA. So it is their internal problem why should we talk this subject??????????

    Peaceful co-existence will remain a distant dream until the rule of law in applied equally to all those who violate it. Perpetrators should be brought to justice. Muslims must take extreme measures to protect their Blood, Honour and Property.

    Muslims all over the world are known to be people who practice very the PRINCIPAL OF CO-EXISTENCE.

    MUSLIMS NEVER INTERFERE OR KILL THEIR OWN MINORITY MUSLIM SECTS or muslims never ban non-believers of other religions.

    Muslims never accept that it is their QURAN and how it is interpreted which are wrong. Instead they accuse every one else.

    Do muslims ever talk about the harm they are doing to non-believers and their properties. THE ANSWER IS NO. because that is what they QURAN wants.

      Injustice is part of Human nature and blame should be directed to those who commit. It”s pathetic to blame the Burmese people with the crimes the Burmese criminal Monks commit. Muslims of Sri Lanka have an unique identity of their own while they will be always be part of the wider community just like Christians and others.

      SOME CORRECTION

      Muslims all over the world are known to be people who practice the PRINCIPAL OF CO-EXISTENCE.

      That is why even in Sri Lanka muslims have killed muslims in the name of ISlam, just to prove which muslim sect is the authentic.

      Forget muslims killings muslim in other countries.

    MUSLIMS NEVER INTERFERE OR KILL THEIR OWN MINORITY MUSLIM SECTS or muslims never ban non-believers of other religions.

    So when did you become the Mutawa to question why Muslims fight and kill each other over sectarian violence? So it bothers you? You are not genuinely looking for answers, but proselytizing your ignorance. What did Theravada Buddhists do to Mahayana Buddhists who came into this country? Beat the s..t out of them and banished them for good. Take comfort from that. It is the same with the Muslims.

    Another one: Muslims never accept that it is their QURAN and how it is interpreted which are wrong. Instead they accuse every one else.

    As if you are an authority to interpret accurately what is stated in the Quran in Quranic Arabic, to pass judgement on what Muslims should accept and/or reject. Instead accuse whom and for what reason? They are all Muslims. Muslims vs. Muslims. Let them fight it out if thatwhat it takes to settle a dispute. Why the hell should you care and burden yourself? Baseless argument. Sheer harangue.

    What harm did the Muslim do to the unbelievers, to deprive them of their properties (specially being a minority within a minority in this country)? You pose the question and answer it yourself with an emphatic ‘NO’, and further affirm it as a Quranic statement. You are totally a sick person, sick in mind, sick in body. No medicine is available for your sickness. Only God must make you see the loght and the end of the tunnel. Just hang on until then.

      Muslims killing Muslims is destructive for Islamic finance, not individual political crises, an academic said yesterday during a meeting where prominent Turkish and global figures had gathered to discuss the pace of Islamic finance.

      “I don’t think [the Middle Eastern crisis] will have too much of an impact on Islamic finance. Rather, it could be seen as an aspect for reconstruction. What I find more destructive is Muslims killing Muslims,” President of the Global University for Islamic Finance (INCEIF) Daud Vicary Abdullah told Anadolu Agency yesterday at the International Forum on Financial Systems in Istanbul.

      Abdullah said that in order to promote Islamic finance in the world, there was first a need to get value propositions across and to change perceptions about Islam and Islamic finance.

      He cited Islamaphobia as the biggest obstacle in the fact of the expansion of Islamic finance.
      “Unfortunately, many people in the West see all of us as terrorists. But we can change this through education,” he said.

      “We are now engaged in Islamic finance education. People who know their subject well should stand and argue against it when they hear something incorrect about the Muslim world,” Abdullah added.

      Islamic finance also stands out in the West as a low-risk investment tool, as the global economic crisis was seen as partly a result of malfunctions by high-risk financial institutions, Abdullah stated.

      In the event, most participants highlighted the “safe-haven” aspect of Islamic finance, which is based on Islam compliant non-interest transactions.

    Sri Lanka is a part of India Buddhism is part of Hinduism. Buddhism has no God. So Srilanka belongs to Tamil Nadu. Tamil kings ruled Sri Lanka. Ellalan Wikramasingam, Parakramabahu, Dotugamunu all are tamil kings of Sri Lanka

    The only way to end extremism and solve world problems is” for a man like Mohammad to assume the dictatorship of the modern world. And he would succeed in solving its problems in a way that would bring it much needed peace and happiness.” That is what George Bernard Shaw is quoted having said. Do not ask me for the context. I am quoting from “Know Your Islam” compiled by Yousouf N Lalljee, published by Tharik-E-Tarsal-E-Quaran, New York, re-published in Qum, religious centre, Islamic Rebulic of Iran Ref.p.22).(Quotees of what others said about Islam.

      Munshitar also must publish some comments along the lines of “What others say about Islam” from the Dutch MP Girt Wilders – just to even things out. This will enable readers to make their own mind.

        Burgher Boy,

        I can sum you up in one quote “You must be little to belittle” – Khalil Ghibran.

        Your pathetic comments speak volumes of what you believe in and the values that guide you. Obviously your church has failed you miserably. May your god be with you and guide you!

    farook, how come it has taken so long to understand the true character of sinhala animals. you tried to reap the benefits from sinhala animals at the expense of tamil people. in order to achieve this you became spies and backstabbers. there is no point in moaning and complaining now. you will never get the sympathy of tamil people. what a turn around and now you have become pariahs ( outcastes) of sri lanka.

      It is foolhardy to think that Muslims ever spent the Tamil issue to barter for their glory and freedom with the Sinhala Government. It’s the jaundiced Tamils who brought upon their own wrath for they are always inclined to infighting. That doesn’t absolve them of their stupidity by pinpointing their state of plight towards the Muslims as the cause.

        There must be an end to the level where Muslims in this thread
        can sink to. Here another is hiding under the Tamil Hindu name Nakkeeran. If he does not know there is more infighting among
        the Muslim parties for their small size, he must keep his trap shut.

            To the fanatic Muslim Alan who parades as a non-Muslim,

            Your typical wish for a bloodbath because the TNA has won resoundingly may fail. It is possible better sense will prevail among the Sinhalese to use this as an opportunity to expedite
            reconciliation and peace. Muslims, of the religion of blood,
            deceit and sword naturally will not like it. They will want a
            bloody scene like that in Nairobi where Al-Shabab is carrying out the dictates of world Islam for global conquest. Sinhalese and Tamils are too wise for this today.

              Reconciliation and peace never possible in SL until monk hegemony exist which is against for Buddhism. Muslims and sinhala Christians live peacefully in SL from the long history unless Tamils and Sinhala Buddhist are killing each other from the same long history and it will never end my friend until Buddhist Racism exist in the Island.

              “Sinhalese and Tamils are too wise for this today”… You are day dreaming……….LOL.
