Video: No One Can Protect Muslims Better Than This Government – Mahinda Rajapaksa

Paying lip service to religious harmony, even as violent mobs yesterday attacked a Pentacostal church close to the capital Colombo, President Mahinda Rajapaksa told a group of Muslims at President’s House in Kandy yesterday that Muslims who value and respect the country’s ancient history, culture, sovereignty and unity could never be misled by various conspirators for petty political gains.

The President claimed that as a “good Buddhist who worships three times a day”, he respects all religions and takes every measure to protect and safeguard the rights of everyone. The President claims there was an attempt to put a wedge between the Government and the Muslim community.

The President said that under his regime, Muslim religious observances were broadcast on state radio five times a day. He declined to note that the broadcasts were paid for by Muslim organisations.

“No one can protect Muslims better than this Government,” he claimed.

        Maybe, we must always take the meaning the other way round…”No One Can DESTROY Muslims Better Than This Government

        (Destruction includes: Religion, Culture, Dress codes, Food, Education, Livelihood, Economy and Social Security enjoyed by the muslims under the dumb constitution).

          You know why I said this was that;
          He uses His body language to tell a different hidden message.

          HE IS THE ONE TO BE SEEK FOR HELP / BECAUSE THE DANGER ALSO COMES FROM HIM – So, the Problem & Solution, both lies with MR.
          (The Kind of a PHAROANIC attitude. He is the Pharoah of the modern SL).

          That is very simple read from his face – Its the general public who is dumb to read what he’s saying.

          He simply indicates that he can destroy the way of life of the Muslims, no matter how peaceful they are and how useful they are to the country for every other reason.

          But, if they cannot tow the line as expected by the regime, they will be taken to task. meaning, there will be a cost for not falling in line. Further meaning that the Muslims must support UPFA.

          After the local govt., election loss in Colombo Central, the regime might have drawn up a strategy to scare the Muslim population by intimidation and harassment continued unlimited, will break their resilience of backing UNP, SLMC en masse in Colombo and east and start to queue up at UPFA’s doorstep for social security as an exchange of loyalty to the protectors.

          BBS/JHU & Allied gangs are armed and militarily backed mercenaries created for attacks on any religious or racial minority on the orders of the regime’s high command at a whim of an eye-wink.

          That’s why when MR talks about inclusive politics comprising all, the LIE shows in his face like the HUGE LCD panel hanging at LIPTON CIRCUS proximity.

      RajaPox is a despot who is hell bent on forming a family dynasty even at the expense of creating disharmony and discord between the majority and minorities by pandering to extremists in the country.
      Hindus, Muslims and Christians who voted for this racist and his party deserve everything that is happening to them today, and they should be shot with their own shit if they vote for his party at the provincial council elections to be held on the 21st.

          He is trying to fool the Muslims. He still thinks that the Muslims in the 3 provincial council elections will vote for the betal leaf (UPFA). Muslims are not fools like the Sinhalese. They will only vote for the elephant (UNP).

      No no no… people who kept making excuses for his barefaced lies have run out of justification to make. Today those apologists will be laughed out of a conversation if they tried to defend these blatant lies.

      Face it, any sane man could tell the guy was as dishonest as they came. But riding the victory with the LTTE, for which he took sole credit, he lost to time selling a utopian, pie in the sky, cockamamie story that the dumb in the country were dumb enough to swallow.

      Wait till hear about what this American family has left you with. By the time you realize what they meant by “Subha Anagathayak” you probably would have shipped your wife and daughter to some kitchen in the Middle East and you yourself would be hoping some pervert “sudda” will inquire about services that you offer.

      Just remember Navi Pillay defends human rights but not stupidity. Sorry you will be on your own on this one.

    What a joke!

    The Rajapaksa brothers are doing what they did in the eighties during the JVP uprising.
    While Mahinda is talking about protecting the Muslims his brother Gota is behind the BBS led attacks against the Muslims.
    This combination worked well and fooled many people when Mahinda was acting as a human rights defender when his brother Gota was torturing and butchering hundreds of innocent youths in Matale.

    These are just populistic words. Remember who started saying we are all srilankens and I am the president of all srilankens. This was 4 years ago. But people of this country what go to see during last 4 years are

    a) Not attacks towards the muslim community ?
    b) The man who louded the words – We are srilankens – himself came with ” we the sinhala buddhists” – that was for the last independence day speech.

    c) At the time, his forces under his command, took the life of school going boys or the youth of this country at Rathupaswala, did this bugger utter a word ? with people still pending to know why he commanded FORCES instead

    d) This man is a joke – but people stay still – stand still – because they are naive and easily vulnerable folk

    e) This naked regime will see its fate soon – may UNHRC convince all other nations the gravity of the situation within Srilanka – Idiots cant let the country and nation becoming a crime friendly one according to them.

      I’m just hoping this bag of pills keeps breathing long enough for him to be defeated in a election and sent home. It would be a travesty-of-karma if this guy were to be afforded a state funeral when he was trying so hard to erase so many other people from memory and history.

      So yeah, let them cover it up with make-up; who cares. Karma has a way of sneaking up on you.

      There are hundreds of people working around him, who he knows will know that he is lying here. Is he worried about them thinking he is a liar?

      Good people are good for the most part because they don’t want others to think badly of them. Once you have lost that sense of morality you are like an animal and no amount of laws is going to keep you from behaving like an animal. And for all intense and purposes you are an animal.

    The attitude of Sri Lankan leaders towards minorities should be more in tune with what is practiced in developed countries rather than from any perspectives haphazardly copied from what benevolent kings in ancient times might have had centuries ago, as they are simply not appropriate within the present socio-cultural context.

      When you want to degrade Sri Lanka you say it is a ‘banana republic’ and now you say you want it to be ‘in tune with what is practiced in developed countries.’ Do you not know that in many of these developed countries, not only Muslims are degraded and their mosques are attacked on daily basis but Muslim women have no freedom to dress as they like.

      He should be educated enough to do so. He just sprouts the words to stay in power. This man is a joke. real joke.. abusive by his own nature. See, how he talks on stages, not second to the Mervin. Mervins words are the same as his. How can the bugger as the president of srilanken is allowed to use “filthy sinhala slang on the stages”. No any previous were like this man. He promotes crimes rather than governing the nation.

      He only talks.

      That’s it, that’s all you get. That’s the whole package. Stop expecting more. Stop asking for more. Stop hoping he’ll suddenly become your benevolent leader. THIS IS NOT THE ONE (oh, by the way, thanks to JVP, you probably got that one killed.)

      Please please please people… there is a limit to how blind, stupid, dumb optimism can be tolerated. Please, for God’s sake, look down an realize THAT YOUR F*ING FEET ARE ON FIRE, and that BBQ smell you get is not beef.

      I feel like I’m watching an arrogant kid play with a matchbox; it is very excruciating to watch but I know I’m going to enjoy a moment of “I told you so” when the kid finally burns himself.

      Just writing from Dortmund/Gemrany. I think Hitlor was not bad as Mara has now been. Mara is saying totally different to what he practises underground. Once he is known to have gone to Geneva to ask for improvement of our human rights. Very same man in power continueously does the opposite. Not even seeing the severity of his bad governance. Nodakin witharak, mewage ewunta VOTE korapu.. ewunta. All because of stupid voters and people´s fully ignorance.
      Buduma budu sarnai srilankens. Those who attacked opposition today are not better. Dayan jayathilaka has proved not once several dozens of times, that he is chameleon like. He s been fighting for his next job. No honest sentiments from his side though repeatedly boasting mode about himself and what he has done, but no honest critics even if Ms Pillay clearly mentioned that the country is on authoritarian rule. This we have noticed long back… He DJ does it even today- people stay silence, but guys like DJ would stay supporting these Rajapakshes, nothing would change for the good of the nation. Syria today, Tomorrow is srilanka.

    All excellent speeches by His Excellency.
    But,did he mean all what he said.
    He appears to be unable to control the extremist forces which are attacking all except the so-called sinhala buddhists.
    If his forces arrest at least one monk shown on videos to have commited criminal acts,people can beleive him.
    He appears unable to control what his army & police are doing.
    He has transformed the judiciary into approving all his acts – which are aimed at prolonging his rule indefinitely.

    How can we have any faith in what you say, when you let loose those BBS morons, without having them arrested and brought to justice for disturbing the peace? We don’t believe you have the leadership nor the moral right to rule this country any more, when you have failed miserably to uphold the law and rule with justice, equality and fair-play to all it’s citizens irrespective of religious and ethnicity backgrounds. Our people are not fools and gullible to believe what you say anymore in your election gimmicks, and certainly will not forgive nor forget what was unleashed on them through state patronage, under your watch. Past experiences have shown us that racism in all its forms, and its deadly fallout leaves a lingering wound of hatred and mistrust between communities, which can never be healed easily, in order to bring in peace and prosperity to a divided nation. The only conclusion we can make is that this country deserves the leaders it gets.

    Toward the end of the 19th century, there was a dramatic rise in Christian religious fervor as various groups anticipated the end of history and the return of Christ in 1900. The main focus of Pentecostal churches is Holy Spirit baptism as evidenced by speaking in tongues. Today, there are at least 170 different denominations that identify themselves as Pentecostal.

    Mark 16: 17-18 reads, “And these signs shall follow them that believe: In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues. They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” In addition to the speaking in tongues such is what Sri Lanka Pentecostal pastors force their congregation to believe in.

    As a result a young girl in Hanwella who was a part of such a congregation died sometime back when she refused to take medicine but continue to pray the Almighty God to be healed for her illness. Mind you these are all indoctrinated proselytes by false pretenses. Moreover, that is only one of many such killings by Pentecostal pastors. Perhaps that must be the reason that the monk led protesters gate crashed at this church.

    MK 10:27, 11:23, LK 17:6 says; “Faith can move mountains. Nothing is impossible if you have faith [as small as] a grain of mustard seed.” Pilley and her UNHRC are totally silent about ‘the fundamental rights’ of such murdered people. Never Mind moving mountains, can faith move a mustard seed? But, brain washed proselytes think God can. So, they ask for all kinds of things from God. Many a times, they ask things that one would get anyway. When they got what they asked for, believing it is their faith that answered the request, they place a fascinating column adverts to thank their God for favors granted. Among such ads, at least once in a while you may have seen depressing news items that report suicidal deaths of fanatical devotees as above.

    Yet, at his deathbed, Pope John Paul 11 wished to prolong his joining the God in his heaven by few days with the latest medication. I am indeed puzzled by his foot dragging. If the Holy See was reluctant to go join the God at his ripe old age, do you wish your kiths and kin leave you at a tender age to join the God in his heaven?

    President,We do not need your foolish words.We need actions.Ghet the Police out- give them the order that if they dont get all the culptrits,including the monks they will be whipped at temple trees.
    If they get the culprits,give them same treatment then throw them into a rat infested prison cell and let them go without food for 1 week.

    In the meantime watch out for your bro Gota and the BBS.When they congregate in front of churches and mosques get the Police to hound them too and throw them into the prison cell.

    Then get your brother Gota to come meet you upstairs at Temple Trees.Give him the treatment and tell him-

    He has spoilt all of your prayer times to Budha.Because of him you have to now pray 5 times and that you cannot do – it will be evening and you have to start hitting the arrack bottle.Budha does not like drinking- no?.

    All this is happening under your very nose – No one unfortuanty believes your jathaka stories.
