Video: Communal Unrest Simmers In North West; Minuwangoda Also Affected

Violent mobs have marched through parts of the Kurunegala District for nearly 24 hours attacking mosques, homes and businesses in Muslim settlements in the area with most of the violence taking place while police curfew is in effect, raising fears of another anti-Muslim riot in the area along the lines of Aluthgama in 2014 or Digana in 2018.

Mobs laid siege to the Kuliyapitiya, Hettipola, Aukana, Kottampitiya areas and by evening today May 13 had moved to Nikaweratiya town area driving Muslim families, now in the midst of their Ramadan fast into paddy fields and into hiding Muslim leaders said.

Footage has emerged of mobs moving through towns while curfew is in place in full view of the police. Mobs burnt vehicles meters away from the Hettipola police station earlier in the day.

Activists also reported that mobs had been stopping vehicles and beating passengers. At least three mosques were attacked in Kiniyama a Muslim village in Kuliyapitiya.

Residents are fearful the mobs will return as darkness falls again to attack homes.

Police arrested several suspects in connection with the violence overnight but released them within hours after the mobs threatened to attack more and more villages unless the suspects were released.

President Maithripala Sirisena who is the Minister of Defence and Law and Order left for China to attend another conference. Apart from calling for calm on Twitter Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has made no moves to control the violence or call in the armed forces to maintain the peace.

After several incidents of violence were reported from Minuwangoda Police declared a curfew that covers the Gampaha District as well until 6AM tomorrow (14). The entire North Western Province is under curfew until further notice as the unrest continues.

    See. this time again they repeat 83 riots. I think all these our sinhalaya should be arrested and put in jail for ever. How come all mulims be extremists. If theyare, then these sinhalayas are also extremists.
    Ballige putha Rajaakshes are behind this. No doubt about that. They make every effort to topple the current govt. I think it is high time to punish BP Rajakshes.

      Bro Buramphisincho,

      “Ballige putha Rajaakshes are behind this. No doubt about that. They make every effort to topple the current govt. I think it is high time to punish BP Rajakshes.”

      Of course they are. They want to get back to power. Sirisena appointed him PM.

      Through the grape vine, from a former army intelligence officer……

      Rajapaksas created and formed the Bodu Bala Sena, Thawheed Jamath and Shiva Sena is to secure their power.

      Sanga and clergies should exist in all religions. Demented doctrines arise from those. Religions should be secured to bring mankind to the right path but no religions should be promoted by the government in power or by a community. Religions should develop on its own. That cannot be promoted by Thawheed jamath funded by the saudi’s, Ashin Virathu of Burma or giving contracts to Abdul Razik of thawheed and Gnansara of Bodu Bala. Abdul Razik is a person who received wages from Rajapaksas.

      He was the person who nurtured Buddhist extremist against Muslims by telling that Lord Buddha ate human flesh. Not only Bodu Bala and Thawheed but Shiva Sena too was in Rajapaksas pay list. Therefore the uprising of Abu Bakr Al Bagdadi is not an up rise of global terrorism but dangerous rehearsal of a geo political sack race. (We would write another article about how Rajapaksas formed terror groups)

      How medamulana nurtured terror groups and the clumsy Royal group
      It’s not a secret that Rajapaksas liked Chinese Yuwan and mortgaged the country.

        Dear Bros Amarasiri,
        .
        Thanks as usual. Please find me that CT article in which President SIrisena had revealed in an AUDIO that all anti-islamic riots by then had been inflicted by Rajapkshe and their loyalists. I am short of time for this week… while travelling across Europe for my job related issues. We need to prove that this is not the first time that Rajaakshes deliberately committed the kind of crimes, even Sirisena endorsed it during the recent crisis period.
        :
        That article was publisehd by CT, during that 51-day crisis ( October or November 2018), we need to remind our viewers to check that again. In that AUDIO President Sirisena confirmed that it was Rajapakshes# acts and his govt would never do that etc.
        :
        Now I do believe, leaving here for China, Sirisena may have asked Rajaakshes to go ahead with the kind of usula attacks on Muslims in order UNPrs automatically be blamed for not having done enough to protect the minorities.
        This should be an extension of last october s conspiracy. Sirisena would do anything right at this moment to gain his presidential extension with the support of withered Pohottuwa loyalists. Mahinda Rajaakshe would do anything and everything to support Sirisena, since what he want is to keep the CROWN to be passed to his own son Namal BP in 2025.
        :
        So we should all make our efforts to prove all the evidences about Rajapakshe brutaltitlies. Rajakashes should be hung by their balls for all the heinous crimes they have perpetrated and been perpetrating yet today. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

      Buramphisincho – I agree with you 100%. WP, BP, MF, Medamulana Meeharaka Percy Mahendra Rajafucksha and cronies are the root cause of all this communal violence. Gamarala Sillysena (under instructions from the Rajapakaya’s) is in China. Ponna Ranil is just marking time!

        Within 48 hours according to news, 30 Muslim villages have come under attack, many Muslim owned businesses have been destroyed, …………. a few smart ass patriotic rioters have been arrested and released on bail so as to go elsewhere and continue their patriotic duty.

        I know somass has been planning for this big event for quite some time. Where is he? Probably he is too busy coordinating with other elements such as prisoners, saffron clad thugs, police, armed forces, local thugs, party thugs, ….

      Agree with you more. During that 52-day crisis (since 26 Oct 2018 to December 2018), President Siirsena confirmed, that any kind of riots either on Tamils or Muslims were mastered by Rajapakshes. Last year, Kandy riots were inclusive. That Dilum Amunugama had been interogated on the KANDY riots for long 9 hours. Nothing was revealed since the deal between Sirisena and Rajakshes were even more secretive.
      And also President Sirisena reiterated, that Sarath Weerasekara should have to have collected provable evidences on such conflicts in order his et al to produce them in each UNHRC sessions.
      All these must not be investigated, we perfectly know that Rajakshes and their bloody rascals are behind today s attacks. If blood would have been DORE GLANAWA, flown in the streams across country, there, Rajakshes rascals are the first to start EATING milk rice the way they initiated it at the time, own northerners were murdered down in the last phase of civil war that held over 30 long years.

      This is Srilanka. Face reality. Ethnic discrimination and violence since Independence. Violence has now become regular.

      Only solution – divide the island into 3 nations for each ethnic group only.

      North – Tamil only
      Batti – Tamil only
      (15% of the island for 15% of the population)

      Trinco – Muslim only
      Ampara – Muslim only
      (10% of the island for 10% of the population)

      Rest – Sinhala only
      (75% of the island for 75% of the population).

      Problem solved forever.

      Sadly the problem is with those idiots who want to live outside these demarcations. Curse them! They are the root cause of this problem.

      Srilankans have proven for the millionth time they cannot coexist. Some fool will shed blood and other fools will join them. This happens every year now.

      Divide and live or unite and die.

        You can have coastal Amparai but definitely not Trinco. Tamils are the majority all along the strategic coastal belt of Trinco and within the city. You only a majority in the Mutur area. The Sinhalese are the majority in the deep interior . If all the Tamil refugees from India return . Trincomallee will have a Tamil majority , as most of these refugees are from this area. Trincomalee is an ancient Tamil city and district . Not a Sinhalese or Muslim area. Large scale killing/ ethnic cleansing of Tamils and deliberate settlement of out of area Sinhalese and Muslims only made the Tamils are marginalised minority in their homelands in Trincomallee and Amparai. Islamice or Muslim homelands along coastal Amparai and Mutur in Trincomallee that is surrounded by Tamil Hindu villages and separated the huge Tamil majority Batticaloa district , that is the eastern heartland will never work. No continuity , lack of resources or land area . Even fake Arab Salafist/Wahhabi Kataankudi relies on the neighbouring Tamil areas for water. The best option for Muslims is to renounce their fake Arab/Waahbi extremist culture and acknowledge their actual Tamil origin and Tami Sufi Islamic culture and live amicably with their fellow non Muslim Tamils. Both people will benefit immensely. After all they share the same language and ethnicity. They are one people with two religions. This artificial division and fake Arab origin was deliberately created by power hungry Muslim politicians and elite ,especially the Southern variety and the Sinhalese establishment to divide and rule the Tamils. Look what has resulted.

        If there is Muslim only it will be Mutur area around Trincomalee and coastal Amparai. Tamils are not going to give the strategic city and the coastal belt where they are a majority and their ancient district with the Historic Konneswaram temple , which was all part of the Tamil Jaffna kingdom to the South Indian origin Dravidian Muslims who only arrived in this area a centuries ago as refugees . We not going to reward killing and ethnic cleansing and hand over large chunks of are lands to immigrant refugee Muslims who have no historical claim. The Sinhalese will never give the Gomarankadawela area in Trincomalee or the interior Amparai to the Muslims. Keep on day dreaming. You either join with your fellow non Muslim Tamils or sink. in side your Islamic Bantustans, that is surrounded by Tamil Hindu villages and towns

      Sarath Fonseka must take a major share of the responsibility for this carnage. His ill advised (and as it turned out, baseless) warnings of bombings today gave the opportunity to the dregs of society to come out and do their act as defenders against evil.
      Add to that the clown Sirisena deciding that an insignificant conference in China is more important than the lives and property of his citizens.

          Rajapakses saved the country from LTTE terrorism. Some may not agree with their human rights record, but they never gave in to terrorists. This stupid government of ModaSiri and Bondscam Ranil will topple itself, no need for Rajapakse to do anything.

            I have no idea about your knowledge when it goes with average lankens.
            :
            Just study the comments being passed to any YT videos and live chats, there you will have to agree, that most of lankens in and out of the country are just hate mongers. Mostly Rajaakshe and their loyalists are behind them. 30 long year war found its stop in the first term of Rajapakshe, meaning not necessarily that it was he who stopped it. Thanks to late Mr Kadirgarmar and others worked diehard to get LTTErs banned on the west and across the globe. I know it personally, since I have been living in Europe for the last 3 decades: Tamil refugees kept collecting funds, mostly by force during those brutal days, came to end with Kardirgamar’s getting them banned on any rich soils.
            Also Political Wing of LTTE became weaker and no times before by 2005. There are multi-factors LTTErs to fall down towards 2009: Sure lanken various forces converged to strenghthen the moral of the countries three forces.
            Buddhist clergy and the support given by various parties made it. THAT IS WHY I AM STILL INTHE VIEW NOT RAJA S BIG TALKS BUT COLLECTIVITY SUCCEEDED IT by MID 2009.
            And the very same leader whose magical powers to have single handedly defeated terror – to fall that low by end of 2014, cant be if your hypotheses were totally right ?
            Power hungry, unedcuated bastards abused the innocience of the people as no other leaders did, and painted the picture in favour of THEIR POLITICAL eternity.
            :
            There had been a program on ALJASEERA TV lately, there the experts revealed as to why LANKEN MEDIA INSTITUTIONS still stay that baised to RAJAAKSHEs when passing any TRUTHSs being mixed mostly with untruths … what came out was MEDIA men are made servile by the high profile crimes records came into being during RAJAPAKSHE era.

              If late Mr Kadirgarmar was a persuasive man why was not he appointed the prime minister of this island? Even his assassination still remains an open ended cold case. He was bumped off on 12 August 2005 in a high security zone which beg more questions than it answers. By the way Mahinda Rajapaksa was appointed prime minister on 6 April 2004.

              “Tamil refugees kept collecting funds, mostly by force during those brutal days, came to end with Kardirgamar’s getting them banned on any rich soils.”

              Are you being serious?
              From whom did the Tamil refugees collect funds?
              How did they force?
              Didn’t they have police protection?

              Remember it was VP who won the two elections and a war for Mahinda with great help from Hindia.

        This is well planned and Sirisena is working with those scheming Rajapakshas. Perhaps some elements of the Army is backing them. Otherwise why did the rioters so brazenly get on to the streets when the curfew was on?

      Why these Mususlims were not dare to do this when LTTE was at its peak ?

    The jobless donkeys have no brains. They are basically cowards that get their courage by joining the others and terrorizing innocent people. Where is the military and the police? Surely our government should have plans in place to nip this in the bud? If the military thinks there is no need for foreign troops, then they must get their act together and tackle this head on. By not doing so they are only showing the desperate need for foreign troops. The safety and security of the minority depends on the leaders of the country. Everyone is AWOL and not engaged in doing something immediately to curb this. We do not want another July 83 to forever blacken our history. If the religious leaders, military, police, and of course our good for nothing Ministers do not step in and stop this madness, lives are at risk. These scumbags are out of control causing destruction to property, and threatening lives. THEY MUST BE STOPPED.

    The Sinhala Modayas are doing the same thing to the Muslims that they did to the Tamils in 1983 that created a 30 years’ war. Unlike the Tamils who did not expect a backlash in 1983, the Muslims are well prepared right the BBS sponsored attacks. They have insured their shops and other valuables. Any damage to their mosques will be compensated by the government from our tax money. All these pictures will go abroad, especially to the Arab countries where our people work. The final losers from these attack on Muslim properties will be the Sinhalayas.

      The losers at the end will be those who live in this country. When one is attacked the entire country bleeds, in many ways. These dolts who go around with sticks, thinking they are tough, don’t realize they are attacking the entire country. The businesses are suffering, and Sri Lanka’s economy is taking a bit hit.

      Deva ,

      The truth is , Muslims always had serious issues with unruly
      Sinhala rogues who were a nuisance to decent Sinhalese and
      perhaps their families as well . The trend was exploited by
      racist politicians and monks to attack the politics of Muslims
      that was mainly the U N P politics . The Eastern Muslim politics
      is recent and nothing to do with the beginning of the trend . The
      1915 Sinhala hatred of Muslims launched by Anagarika Dharmapala
      was never brought to an end to date , only the lip service by all
      parties including Muslim self serving politics . All ordinary and
      decent Srilankans are let down today by their dumb and blind
      leaders . To rule the country they call up racism ! The obvious
      powerless are challenged to react , knowing well that they are small
      in strength . The fools are setting the country on fire , knowing well
      that the perpetrators of Easter carnage were acting from far away
      by putting forward a small number of locals to drag the country into
      a warfare that has nothing to do with us . That is no secret now ! So ,
      what is this madness then ? The job of those who have nothing to
      lose ! Only beggars have time for all these and those who are eager to
      use cheapest available investment for bigger returns !

    The President was out of the country during the Easter Sunday Massacre, when he should have known about it days BEFORE the Massacre through Intelligence warnings. Now, he is out again when innocents are being attacked in several parts of the country. The chances are that he KNEW about the impending attacks and still decides to be away from the country. What a Responsible President we Have. otes

    I and my family voted for him last time but he will Definitely NOT get mine and my family’s votes next time.

      Better wear vesti when you go out no more beard or thoppi.

      Tell your women folks to wear saree, fix flowers and apply potu when they go out.

      Your people have exposed their stupidity and reaping harvest.

      How many Hindu temples destroyed in N-E by your Home Guards do you know ?

      Even Sinhalese will not dare to touch an Amman Temple.

      Hindu Gods are taking revenge .now thats all your people destroyed Temple and built beef stall over …unpardonable crime .

      Pity even your one and only GOD has ran away,

      Even Tamils voted for this President .

        “How many Hindu temples destroyed in N-E by your Home Guards do you know ?”

        NO. Why don’t you educate ALL in this Forum by giving details such as names of temples and the villages they were located, dates -at least year – when the temples were destroyed and evidence that it was the Muslim Home Guards?

        Don’t come out with another Lie that you have already given the details.

    So it would seem, today the muslims are the victims. After a threat saying that their would be problems today, everyone decided to destroy the mosques, the places we all cherish to have a good meal (oh the irony!) and the fruit stalls (who are simply trying to make a living with the little money they have). The best part about the videos I am seeing are the lovely Policemen and Army, watching in laughter as all these establishments get destroyed. Congratulations. We have just gone back 30 years. A big shout out to our President and his 27 friends who are having a nice holiday in China during these riots.

    Just a quick statement; their is only 1 race. THE HUMAN RACE. I wonder when the people of this nation are ever going to learn this.

    This is what Trios had in their mind when hiring the ISIS to bomb the Tamil Churches. They belive this will give the needed medicine to the UNHRC resolution 30/1..

    Muslim could have been protected from this formula, if Hakeem and Richard, instead of hiding the munthanai of the Sinhala Supporting Cinema actresses going to UNHRC to witness against Tamils, if they had gone on their own and argued against Thero De Silva’s propaganda of the Zero casualty. Now Muslims are drugged into this formula. This is extremely difficult maze, woven by Sinhala Politicians like Don Stephan with his MMDA Muslims to get out of this.

    While Sinhala Politicians and Muslim politicians of Muslim-Sinhala Aanduwa is in cozy mood, recent pattern of Muslim Sinhala Relationship (at mass level) is not narrowing to meet at one point, but escalating in “V” shape. Like in the case of 1983, suppressing this communal riot is unlikly to be productive to future harmony. Muslims are in a situation, by abandoning Burka, they cannot return to 1970’s life. Their new life style is not to roll back to Sari on any aspects of their life(Dress, food, education).Sinhala Politicians like them to study Arabic and become more Arabian oriented to increase their income trapped from Arabia. Sinhala Politicians prefer the New Colonial master Abdul Aziz’s overrule to independence and internal sovereignty. This will not satisfactory to Pancha Pala Vegaya, the Sinhala Mass. The main unsettling nature here is Sinhala Mass and the Arabian Commission seeking Sinhala Politicians who are pushing Muslims to Arabian deserts.

Security being spectators , have we heard this before???? Now this was told has a threat to the nation days before in parliament , including SF. Any one remember the Kottiya saga. First warn of a threat.Then pass curfew in preparation. What we witness is coordinated and organized attacks on the community by goons. If anyone resist either he will be shot as terrorist or arrested under PTA. Now think about the fake news send by Cardinal Ranjith.

    I can not stop thinking that these are pre planned. President is away, some hidden hand is asking drunkards, most probably, UNP and they are protestants to attack muslim shops. Peoples’ personal or communal dislikes are different. But, here planned must be the case. This need to be investigated properly. I am pretty sire, there is a hidden hand behind.

    The government wanted to amend the existing anti Terororist law by including Communal riots as Terororism so that the security forces and police can use full force, at the moment and even in 83 it was because the lae did not allow the forces to use force that they cpuld not stop the mobs ,dame with digana , so without knowing the facts dont blame stf or other forces the present parliament law forbids use force to stop the mobs. Some political groups are against amending and are spreading false rumours to public stating that the amendment is against media, students and union protests .
    People wakeup .

    Police have been threatened to release two suspects who were taken in by the mobs. They immediately released the two mob members and a parliamentarian is also involved in getting them released. Why the police meekly followed the orders of the mob is the real question. There is a political hand in this type of violence and it is interesting why it happened immediately after President left. This is a calculated attempt to discredit Ranil and the UNP. I think army should be called in with orders to shoot to kill.

    Actually, Catholics are very very angry. Because Yahapalana retards favour Muslim majority over Catholic minority. Badudeen, Hisbulla, Asad, etc pigs haven’t been arrested yet. Some Muslim terrorists who should have been arrested under Prevention of terrorism Act have been released.
    /
    90% of Muslims knew the inevitable attack on Sinhalese. Even Muslims’
    condolences for the victims and condemnations of the Muslim terrorism are lame, cunning and not enough.
    /
    Now it’s not a secret that the Easter day Muslim terrorism was facilitated by Muslim politicians and Muslim businessmen.

      At least the Muslims came out in numbers and condemned the attacks. This is something we almost NEVER saw from Tamil journalists or academics after a suicide bomb went off. The Tamils even have a special day to remember all the fighters (including suicide bombers), called “Maaveerar Naal” (Hero’s Day). This “Hero’s Day” is also celebrated outside of Sri Lanka with great fanfare. It is understandable for Catholics to be angry. However, they should be patient and not overreact.

        “At least the Muslims came out in numbers and condemned the attacks.”

        How many of them came out in support of independent investigation into war crimes and crime against humanity committed by the Sri Lankan state security forces and its affiliated paramilitary hit squad including Muslim home guards, not as frequently as they opposed Israel, and against UN, USA, UK, ………………. , particularly during the period from 1971 to 2015?

        “The Tamils even have a special day to remember all the fighters (including suicide bombers), called “Maaveerar Naal” (Hero’s Day). This “Hero’s Day” is also celebrated outside of Sri Lanka with great fanfare.”

        Do you remember JVP celebrating/commemorating fallen Heroes day in April? The last one took place on 5 April 2019 in Anuradhapura, Kandy and Matara simultaneously. Every 5th April is very important for the JVP, murderers, racists, ….

        Aren’t you being another racist smartass patriot who could only selectively remember history?
        JVP also commemorates its fallen heroes day twice a year the second one the 29th year was in November 2018. How lucky they have been as you have missed both their commemoration of killers for the past 29 years.

        Hypocrisy, selective amnesia, ……

        The state war criminals celebrate it on 19th May as being victory day while completely forgetting how successful they had been killing and winning Sinhalese terrorists.

        Lester ,

        Muslims wasted no time , all in one voice condemned the attack .
        This suicide bombing was planned to set the already tense
        Extremist Buddhists against Muslims , no doubt bombers knew
        the consequences . Whatever the target of ISIS was , innocent
        Muslims were forced on to the street as a result ! The case of
        L T T E was very different . All disagreeing voices were eliminated.
        So , the ordinary Tamil was forced to go only with L T T E , no
        other choice .

    Although there were allegations against Minister Rishard Bathiudeen for supplying tons of copper to the millionaire businessmen Inshaf Ahmad’s factory Closures Pvt Limited at Wellampitiya, who detonated a suicide bomb at the Kingsbury Hotel in Colombo, it was revealed that it was President Pallewatta Gamarala who has insisted minister Bathiudeen to supply tons of copper to the suicide bombers copper factory.

    Public relations director general Shantha Bandara of president Gamarala has sent a signed letter dated 6th June 2018 to the chairman of Technical Development Board (under minister Rishard) to supply 500 tons of scraped copper for a concessionary rate to the above factory.

    Lanka e news has no personal agenda o white wash minister Bathiudeen but it is our duty to reveal that the public that the alleged person for the disaster is not Bathiudeen but president Gamarala.

    Although president Gamarala was the real supplier to the bomb factory, he covered that and exposed Bathiudeen as the offender to the public because it was the president who has said Bathiudeen to leave the country. President who has called Bathiudeen and said, he has lots of pressure to arrest him, therefore to leave the country for few days. Since he cannot deny the request of the president minister Bathiudeen has left the country without telling even the premier. Now the whole country assumes that Bathiudeen left the country in fear that he supplied copper to the bombers factory. One can comprehend the treacheries and unpatriotic conduct of president Gamarala.

Gunmen on motorcycles stormed the church in Dablo on Sunday morning, killing six men, including the priest, identified as Father Simeon Yampa.

    Since 2015 Sirisena with Pohottuwa is quietly destroying Lanka, UNP has tried to minimise the damage but without much success. My worry is Sirisena got another 6 months left and he will set fire to the whole country during this time paving way to Gota to come and establish a dictatorial regime for long long time.

    Every Moslem in Lanka knew about the heinous attacks on the churches and over the past 30 years they have directly or indirectly helped the radical Wahabi terror. If Lanka does not incarcerate every single Moslem between ages 15-55 and thoroughly check them and only release the small minority of Moslems back to society, and keep the others under long term incarceration, they Lanka is doomed. Moslems terrorists will attack with the worst possible weapons they can get, including nerve gas, and kill tens of thousands. The time to act is now. Not a moment to lose.

        As a frequent visitor to Lanka, I have seen the rise of Islamic extremism. When I first started coming here twenty years ago it was such a lovely place. As a member of the queer community, I enjoyed the company of many young people on the beaches. I usually wear the latest in female fashions. The liberal Sinhalese parents never objected to my socialising . After all I compensated them very well.
        But when I started visiting the East coast after the war, I was always met with hostile stares from burqa clad Moslem women who kept their children from me. How unjust is this? These Moslems stick to their mediaeval practices, including banning homosexual practices even between consenting individuals. I suppose they don’t need my money due to the inflows of Wahabi money. I was arrested only once in Bangkok, but apparently the Lankan police are aware of that due to information provided by Muslims

        Do not trust a single Moslem or their apologists until this menace is wiped out but that can happened only if mass incarceration and interrogation of Moslems in Lanka happens fast. I would be delighted to provide input on colonic irrigation techniques

        Try and provide an answer to the threat of imminent nerve gas attack from Moslems if you can before tens of thousands of poor Lankans die at the hands of fanatics. Also, remember, the Jewish holocaust was partly supported by Moslems.
