    Looks like another “1983 Desha Premi Kada Kadapan” re-visiting of 1983 looting and destroying in the name of true Sinhala Buddhist Patriotism.

    While opening Vesak Dansalas to feed people,a systematic ethnic clensing and a land grab is taking place.

    This is what they do during Buddhist Holy week.

    Leopards won’t change their spots.

    Patience and vigilance are Golden, but spread the news.

    Let’s see who will have the last laugh.

        As Muslims shops are burnt one after the other, what do the police, the government, security forces who are gung ho about security in the NorthEast, Muslim ministers and the learned Judges do? Sweet nothing.

        Do the Sinhalese people protest against these arson attacks against Muslim shops? No, they don’t care if it is a Muslim, Christian or a Tamil the victim.

        What do the Sinhalese writers do? They talk about academic things about the 17th and 18th amendments while Mavanella shop or Beruvella shop burns.

        Is there a nation called Sri Lanka? No, they are all different; Sinhalese,Tamils, Muslims and Christians.

        So, what do we do? Keep talking and writing like impotent idiots!

        Oh, what a Silly Lanka we got since the British left in 1948!

        Conclusion: Sinhalese leaders can’t govern themselves, but they want to rule Tamils, Muslims and others. Dogs in the manger, what else can they be.

        It’s a shame that there is no law, order or security, but they talk proudly about their 2500 year old civilization. Really?

        What is the point in reciting Buddhist slogans week after week, if you don’t practice what Buddha taught? Buddhish-ipocricy?

          Well, when the whole country is a criminal enterprise what do you expect.

          When the police is a tool of the state, when the judiciary is stacked by ingratiates, when the compliant military is ever ready to pounce on the slightest dissent, when the media have been made pliant by gifts, when criminal elements subservient to the regime are stacked up to administer the provinces, the use of saffron robed thugs are used to foment racial hatred, what really do you expect.

          Say what you wish to say, the Rajapaksa mafia will benifit from every attack on minorities. Crushing the minority Tamils is what gave them so much power and continuing to hit the minorities is how they will enjoy this power into perpetuity. The Rajapaksa’s are not fools, the rank and file Sri Lankans are.

      Daytime Daniel. Night time Saradiel.

      This is how the life is going on in Sri Lanka.

      While instigating violance among races while knowing they are loosing power and vote bank, playing the race card is the only way to survive.

      Another Rajapakse Gilmart to distract and divide the people from real problems and to create trouble to bring back emergency laws.

      See how the Buffalo Police behave……So funny.

      Wait for the next Medamulana Comedy Gilmart show.

    As i always say,only way out for the muslims is to defend themselves.when Tamils were massacred and their property burned in 1977 and in 1983.the tamil started defending themselves and they earned the much needed respect from Singhalese thugs.From 1983 to 2009,nobody dared to touch the tamils,why?.Now with the present trend continuing unabated with the support of Police, we are sadly heading towards another round.Where everyone will be a looser once its get going

    This is an ongoing conflict area between Sinhala Buddhists and Muslims for the past fifteen years or so ,just like Galle ..

    What a sad state of affairs ……………

    The Sinhala Kings were much more smarter they knew how to develop their kingdoms by supporting and promoting certain ethnic members according to what they excel in…

    A large segment of Sri Lankans becoming a senseless and soulless people….

    Vietnam and Myanmar have proved it is a no security zone for Investors , How safe can Sri Lanka prove itself to be?

    Tuan,

    Indeed these clowns, the “Desha Premi” thugs are slowly setting the stage to burn down Sri Lanka for the next 50 years.

      Ben,

      Thugs are thugs; chauvinists are chauvinists; racists are racists. But where is the governing system? Where is the law? Who is accountable?

      When the Tamils were beaten and looted in day light in connivance with the police, army and navy people turned away. Now the Muslims are targeted by the same elements but the Tamils cannot help and the same old Sinhala turning the other way. When the Sinhala Christians become targets, what would the Sinhala do?

      The biggest paradox is that, it is the Tamils in Sri Lanka and the Diasporas are by proxy inadvertently deferring the inevitable attack on the Christians! Once the Tamil national question is resolved, if it happens, the situation for the Christians is looking very ominous indeed!

        Burning_Issue,

        “where is the governing system? Where is the law? Who is accountable?”

        We have no government in this country. We have a family run Junta in power. Ruling by corruption, patronisation & sheer brutality.

        Justice system in Sri Lanka needs to be overhauled TOTALLY! Along with its governemnt and the spineless, self-serving opposition.

        It is a very tall order.

        Nearly 70 years after Independence we are at the bottom of the pit.

        Cheers!

    You would expect the present regime, after ending the conflict with Tamil terrorists, would make sure the country does NOT go through a similar situation of hell and bombs. This is leading up to the same situation.
    This is eerily similar to the build up of the Northern conflict. What is wrong with these rajapaksa’s. Which foreign entity and funds are they working for, by destroying our nation, and inflicting it with communal problems? What traitors are they that allow such hatred and violence to keep escalating. and that would end up affecting the entire country? Why do they want the country to go up in flames again?

      Rajapassa is a calculating coward.

      Scared of taking on the very vocal, violent Sinhalese Buddhist racist, nationalist thugs. BBS & their ilk are moving from the fringe to centre of power in SL with alarming speed. Yet, Rajapassa does nothing. Acts so totally impotent.

      If Rajapassa loses his bloated, fake image as “saviour” of the nation, he would lose a vital vote bank provided by the electorate.

      There Rajapassa has much in common with Canada’s Harper or UK’s Cameron.

      Rajapassa’s greed for power means he cannot stand up for what is right for Sri Lanka’s future.

      He should be chased away from the Presidnecy at the earliest opportunity.

      Cheers!

        Despots believe they are invincible. He is not scared of any of them you mentioned above.

        He is only using them, hence he unleashes them when needed. They will come back to hound him in the not so distant future. It would be too late for him, his clan obviously for the people.

    The time has come for the Muslims in Sri Lanka to request all Middle Eastern countries to send all Sri Lankan workers back to Sri Lanka. The Government of Sri Lanka earns so much on the back of foreign workers and this would teach the Government of Sri Lanka a lesson.

    I don’t see this incident reported in any of the main stream online media. Maybe they are heeding to presidents plea not to report such issues as according most respected president it spreads communal disharmony. Good advice provided police take action against culprits.

    There is a clear cut difference in police inaction, when BBS & Thugs go on rampage it’s like a carnival or a joyful group activity, police is providing protection to the mob the media is positioned in strategically for the best possible angle.

    When a Muslim man’s shop is burned down by a bunch of rowdy’s police take their own sweet time, fire-brigade comes late (In the case not even available) most of all there is no arrests.

    The trend is not healthy, peace will not last long if law just stays blind to all these atrocities. Though highly concentrated efforts are in place not to retaliate. It wont last long at this rate.

    We should see what actions law will be take when that happens.

    I am sad to say Sinhalese peoples moral values has deteriorated drastically. Their violent nature has been enhanced by 10-20 deserters from armed forces roaming around freely in every village.

    One need not look far for Proof, just read some of the comments.

    Even with so much of accusing fingers pointed many decent Sinhala Buddhist have tried to protect their neighbors irrespective of race or religion while Muslims have kept silent at best at worst fished in troubled waters.

    “First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out–
    Because I was not a Socialist.

    Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out–
    Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out–
    Because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me–and there was no one left to speak for me.”

    THERE IS JUST ONE GROUP BEHIND ALL THAT HAS BEEN GOING ON SINCE THE WAR ENDED AND THAT IS JHU –

    THE BBS -RAVAYA AND THE REST OF THE THUGS ARE THIER HANDY MEN , AND UDAYA GAMMANPILA IS DREAMING OF BECOMMING THE FUTURE MODI (HICK ,,,,)

    AT THE LAST PROVINCIAL ELECTION PEOPLE FROM THE MINORITY AND A MINORITY OF THE SINHALA BUDDHIST SENT A MESSAGE BY NOT VOTING ,,,,

    SO IF THE CURRENT GOVERNMENT IS TO STAY ON- NEXT ELECTION IT WILL BE WISE TO DROP THESE GOONS OFF …

    AND IF THE 45 % OF THE 60 % OF THE SINHALESE BUDDHIST WHO VOTED YES @ THE LAST PROVINCIAL ELECTION FOLLOW THE SAME WAY AT THE PRESIDENTIAL OR GENERAL ELECTION ,THEN THE MESSAGE IS NOT JUST FOR THE MINORITIES BUT TO THE WHOLE WORLD THAT WE ARE A RASCIST PEOPLE AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO ONLY SUPPORT A GOVERNMENT THAT IS CONTROLLED BY OUR RACIST FORCES (JHU-BBS ,RAVAYA AND GOONS )..

    IT WOULD BE WISE FOR THE PRESIDENT TO LOOSE THE 45 % OR SO VOTER BASE OF PREJUDISED SUPPORTERS OF JHU ,BBS ,RAVAYA AND OTHERS AND OPT TO GAIN THE VOTES OF THE MORE JUST AND REFINED SINHALA BUDDHISTS AND THE MINORITIES .. LET US WAIT AND NOT GET TIRED OF WAITTING …

      This man,the president,won’t do anything to convince
      the minorities and even if he does,nobody is mad
      enough to take him serious at an election time.The
      trend unleashed under this govt can not be expected
      to settle down under a new govt either and Muslims
      instead of waiting in patience will have to find a
      stronger alternative immediately.Sinhalese business
      rivals are to benefit from the attacks,a new form of
      advertisement.I think expansion of Muslim retails
      and the continued inability of rival retailers in
      competition against Muslims is one major reason.Failure
      to advance Buddhism on par with that of Muslims is
      another reason.Muslims,being a minority,not suffering
      any substantial financial setbacks at any economic
      turmoils is a third undigested factor by its enemies.
      While Buddhism is getting more and more ignored by
      Buddhists,Islam is becoming more visible on the street,
      yet another jealous trigger.The ongoing anti-Islam
      world campaign has also helped local opportunists to
      start something to go in line with.Thug politics wait
      to benefit,including sheep clothed Muslim named fox
      politicians.

    @Why why ..

    why, why ?

    Simple , from the time The Holy Prophet’s (pbuh) demise Muslims have been betraying each other to date ,look around the world and Sri Lanka Muslims are the dirtiest out of the lot, where the siblings betray each other ,the relative plot ,plan and destroy families ,politicians plot ,humiliate even murder for their gains ,men with long beards & women with Hijabs falling five times a day and even who have visited Mecca -freely slander ,backbite ,plot with the enemies of Islam to destroy Muslims for money ,, this is Allah’s retribution …

    Am sure you of all people Mr.Why,Why will know what I mean ya?

      Chopping

      Number of people leaving religions are on the increase
      and Islam is no exception.When I said”failure of Buddhism
      among Buddhists compared to the visible presence of
      Islam on the streets,”I didn’t mean real Islam has
      advanced.Superficial and outward changes surfaced,deep
      inside, nothing has changed and as you said “money at any
      cost”has become the noblest.But the conditions of family
      bonding among Muslims and Tamils are,I’m sure,higher than
      the rest,in Srilanka. Majority of Muslim families have
      more than one family in a house where as average
      Sinhalese can never try this.As for the visit to Mecca by
      almost 100% of our folks,it’s utter wastage of national
      wealth.It’s a business for the bearded folks and ego of the
      ordinaries.I fully agree with you.With regard to the
      betrayal of Muslims after the demise of the prophet,the best
      example could be the story of “pen and paper” and the life
      of non other than Fathima.You don’t have to read anything
      else I suppose.But,but,the issue right in front of us is,a
      threat that has nothing to do with Buddhism vs Islam.It’s
      100% politically motivated false Sinhalese Buddhist vs
      Muslim identity.Politically highly bankrupt govt and equally
      bankrupt opposition except the JVP,have no will power to
      deal with the situation.Muslims must not only blame the govt,
      they must blame the UNP more because UNP is their party and
      that is one major reason for the treat.Normally political
      revenge takes place as soon as they come to power,but in this
      case the pattern has changed.If UNP is not coming to help,
      vote for another party.
