Video: STF Colludes With Goons Who Perpetrated Anti-Muslim Violence

Colombo Telegraph is in possession of video footage that show members of the Special Task Force (STF) of the Police Department or Sri Lankan Army in cahoots with those who have perpetrated violence against Muslims in Kandy district.

The video clearly shows the assailant humiliating his victim, bragging about what he did, while STF/Army personnel look on and laugh.

He is heard saying ‘It is because of what I did to you that you now find yourself on the streets, isn’t that so?’

The STF/Army officers present do nothing to apprehend the thug who has just confessed to his crimes in their presence. They only laugh.

Watch the video below:

      Yes, There is Fake Buddhism and Fake Police in Miracle of Modayas, lead by Bondscam Ranil Wickramasinghe and Gamarala Sira!

      The law and order and justice institutions are crippled by the Culture of Immunity and Impunity for hate crimes and financial crimes established by RW in past 3 years.

        Quite right SM! The SInhala masses, who are suffering under massive economic inequality and DEBT CRISIS due to the Bondscam at Central Bank, Fake Development projects of Mahinda Jarapassa, and Ranil’s neoliberal and neocon. economic reforms, find Muslims as scapegoats for the crimes of the Great Sinhala rulers – Ranil, Mahinda and Sirisena. Same thing happened in 1983 when JRJ did his neoliberal project. The fact is that Ranil is selling the country to foreign interests and people are fighting among themselves, because they are powerless against the corrupt politicians and their foreign backers including IMF that work for Global 1 percent.
        Ranil has completed his partner in crime – Mahinda Rajapaksa’s and Goon Gota’s project of Divide, Distract and RULE. ..

      Criminal IGP & Drama Queen Pujitha J should not be wearing Sri Lanka’s uniform meant for law enforcement agents.
      YOU ARE A DISGRACE TO ALL OF US!
      PS: Go home Pujitha J! Do not bother ever to come back. Do not worry about clothes to wear. I am happy to order you a package from VICTORIA’S SECRET’S finest lingerie. You deserve nothing less.

            @Goraka

            Sir do you know that Muslims in this country speak Tamil at home and practice many Tamil traditions but still think that their forefathers are Arabs and Arabs will help them?

            Do you know that before the arrival of Portuguese there were no so-called Muslim in N-E of the country but today these people encroach not only temple lands but also the cemetery of Tamils?

            My comment about Saudi accepts these Tamil speaking Muslims is nothing wrong but in reality, Arabs treat Asian Muslims as shits go and see in the Middle East.

          about Muslims and the world of Muslims beyond Saudi Arabia ?

            When Tamils here massacred there was a guy called Karu-Nai-Nidhi ruling TN ..to please the imported Italina woman he crushed all uproar…demonstrations with iron fist.

            The solution here is atleast after this Muslims must realise there are not special people but converted hindus few hundred years ago and join with N-E Tamils in politics.If they still believe the sweet words of their Muslim leaders and Ulamahs who are living in stone age …their futute is dark.

            Else tomorrow even lorry load of thugs enter Caliphate of Kaththankudy and attack all with the blessing of Sinhala security
            forces.The only escape to the citizen of Calipahte is to neighbouring Tamil villages or Indian ocean.

          Actually, the Sinhala, Tamils and Muslims are Paras from South India.

          The Labnd belongs to the Nartive Veddah Aethho.

          So the Para-Sinhala, Para-Tamils and Para-Muslims are Paras from South India., and should be sent back to their homeland Southern India, including cholan, a remnant of the Para-Chola invaders.

          Through a comparison with the mtDNA HVS-1 and part of HVS-2 of Indian database, both Tamils and Sinhalese clusters were affiliated with Indian subcontinent populations than Vedda people who are believed to be the native population of the island of Sri Lanka.

      To recall what a priest said long ago:

      ‘First they came for the Tamils, I was not a Tamil so I didn’t worry’

      Now they are coming for me…….

      The rabid mob clothed in sacred saffron robes have a devious plan that involves the Sri Lankan armed forces who are now considered a de facto Bauddha-Sinhala Army and will do the what the ‘man in saffron’ says.

      Meanwhile, the deafening silence of the Maha Nayakes says it all.

        When they came for the Tamils , the Muslims did not keep quiet but joined in the anti Tamil dance and took part gleefully , stating that despite speaking Tamil , following Tamil customs and culture and having Tamil ancestry , they are not Tamils but Arabs/Moors( sic) . Now the anti Tamil dance is over and their former Sinhalese dance partners do not want to dance with them but beat them up and they are blinking and crying ” why are you beating us” after all we greatly helped you to kill more than 300000 innocent Tamils chase 1.2 million of them to the west and India and destroy Hindu temples and grab lands, especially in the east , where we still want to grab and steal lands”. We thought you will divide the victory spoils with us and give the east to us on a platter but now don’t want to but everything for you. Please don’t beat us go and beat up the Tamils again. We are not Tamils but Arabs. Look at the way we dress and behave now. Just like Wahhabi Salafist Arabs. Our Saudi masters who fund us to create chaos.

      Sharowana,

      I am not surprised at all. If Sri lanka had investigated and prosecuted all those who committed violence, rape and sexual assaults on Tamils as stipulated in LLRC, Sri Lanka would instilled a semblance of rule of law. This would have sent a message that no one will be spared. Its only the Muslims who cares; this was the attitude when such things were happening to the Tamils.

      By contrast, when some Sinhala villages were assaulted by the police over a protect during MR regime, many sinhala heavyweights spoke out including Dayan J. At least Sampanthan raised the issue at the parliament.

    SRI LANKA is descending into a chaotic country like that of some African countries. We have had one of best legal systems and public administrative systems in Asia .. Now one by one is gone. Police and Law enforcement agents do not do their jobs and they live bribes and they are politically motivated . Sri Lanka government should punish this type of people before it become worst. Law and order should be put back .. Legal services and judge should do their jobs impartiality to punish these people . Shame on this officer.

If it happened to me I might shiver from head to toe in fear because you never know what will happen next. We must put our feet into other persons shoes and look at it.

          Learn to write complete sentences.
          1983 riots were carried out by UNP sponsored thugs same like 2018 anti-Muslim riots. Another UNP government, different thugs. It spread the same way, ignited one place and let it spread. Some hooligans sponsored by stupid politicians, and some sidekicks not knowing government’s real motive took part in Muslim-Sinhala riots.
          Same as 1983, ordinary Sinhalese protected Muslims this time too, including Buddhist monks who sent away some people from attacking mosques and even stayed there overnight to protect the mosque.

            Did any of those monks take a telephone call to Ranil or Jeyam or Mahesh & said them “these guys are gone to nightclub to see girls, we are guarding the Mosque, so send the cheques to us tomorrow morning? “

            What is this drama you all are playing, Bald headers orders for the arson, Rapist Army bring the gasoline, Mobs set the fire. Now what is this U turn? the boomerang has returned? Then, what the bald heads have got to do in a Mosques? You people don’t have men’s room in Buddhist Temples so they went to mosques to pee?

            You wrote the shameless racism all time here & now wearing a Reda to write these new gimmicks. Shut up man! Ramil is better foxy racist, knows well to camouflage his racism under his politics. You only a “L” board in playing that double game.

            Listen, Wimal is hungry; fasting in protest against UN because the Muslims properties are being burned. Please buy and take lemon puff packer to him. A better service to Buddhism than all this blah blah!

            See you! (Only after that break-fast).BYE BYE

        This is typical Sinhala mentality ..Tamils have experienced this since 1956….Sinhala forces allow killing and .. looting.
        During the peak of Tamil massacre in 1983 Mr.Dharmister went on radio and said ..if they want peace I will give peace ..and if they want war I will give war…thus encouraged Buddhists to massacre Tamils
        If Buddha visits this country today he will commit suicide.
        Sunday SIL Monday KILL was practiced freely.
        Buddusiam is commercialized in this country.
        Bloodbath in Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos.Thailand, and in Sri Lanka in these countries they practice Buddhism.

          This country, which was always under attack by sea pirates and invasions by Cholas, were protected, built and developed by Sinhalese Kings and our ancestors, belongs to Sinhalese. We have no objection of the existence of other ethnicities as long as they don’t pose any threat to its real owners who have over 2600 years of a proud history and another similar period of unwritten history.

      Champa,
      Your idealism is admirable. But don’t you know that the forces are 98% Sinhala, and drawn from the least intelligent parts of society (they can’t get another job). You expect them to “protect all citizens equally” ?
      The government knows this very well, that’s why they are not ordered to arrest Gnanasara for example. The govt. doesn’t want a mutiny on its hands in addition to a riot.
      If this continues, we WILL have foreign intervention.

          2

          People die everyday: murders, suicides, accidents. Why did Ganasara select this death to visit the funeral? Because, the assailants were Muslims.
          Many Muslims were killed by Buddhists in accidents and murders, but no Muslim politician or clergy visited the funeral unless they are relatives or friends. Today Gnanasara listed out many incidents that involved Muslims and Buddhists and reportedly initiated by Muslims. He never thinks about Muslims who died at the hands of Buddhists. When the JMO proved that Wasim Thajudeen was tortured to death before burning, did any Muslim leader looked at it through a racial lens?
          In my view, not only Gnanasara but also all the monks and activists who visited the funeral without any relationship or friendship should be arrested and jailed for 20 years.
          That is the only way to prevent this nonsense forever.

    The UN needs to send a strong, armed to the teeth peace keeping force compromising of tamil and arab soldiers, or it should take steps to arm minority communities so they can defend themselves. No more trust in any sinhala politician or the armed forces.

      More than 25 Muslims worship places set on fire by Budda Terrorists .. why ?? Buddha ordered ? NO……….But Kaavi rowdies who themselves claim as followers of Budda , ordered so it happened.
      Destiny started to work so a Budda Kaavi Terrorist with his kaadayos , was killed when tried to make a petrol bomb to throw on a mosk in Kattugastota ,. But now all Kaavi Terrorist are spreading news Muslims attacked pansal.. Muslims had a right to retaliate but they ddnt do it at all……The Muslims and Kiristians are the Most forbearing community since 1915..
      There are hundred of thousands Budhists are living where Muslims are majority but even a single Budhist was not under attack.. No pansala attacked.
      Thats why Head of Defence said ‘ Sin Keleya are traitors and ungrateful DOGS . Becuause of Muslims great support Military won the war thus the srilankan budhists are living without fear of Tamil Terrorists…….But of course there are Racist Polickaaraya and aamikaaraya who support kaavi rowdies. Now people are CURSING all Sin Kele Rowdies ….

      The President has received CID report that this alleged attack by Muslims was actually carried out by the Sinhala mobs who themselves threw stones on the Ambatenne temple in order to find an excuse to attack a mosque nearby. The President acknowledged this fact in a meeting he had with some Muslim leaders and representatives who met him.

    IGP Pujith is Bondscam Ranil Wickramasinghe’s hand picked boy for Top Cop. Just like Arjuna Mahendran was for the Central Bank.
    RW has systematically promoted a culture of impunity for Hate crimes and financial crimes in past 3 years of Jarapalanaya..
    When the Prime Minister is a crook, and has crippled the justice, police and law and order institutions with his special boys for the jobs, what do you expect from run of the mill STF and police officers?
    The Culture of Impunity is entrenched by the Jarapalaya boss – RW and his Colombo 7 Royal College boys who are.protecting the previous crooked regime of Mahinda Jarapassa and his foreign citizen brothers in the name of RECONCILIATION! What a farce!
    The fish has rotted from the head down .. Sri lanka has been rotted by its corrupt and power hungry politicians – MR and RW need to be in the same prison for promoting a culture of impunity for Hate crimes and financial crimes.

    Clear indication that Ranil is powerless .
    who is in MOD ? why was SF refused ?
    where are we heading , not sure exactly the end journey , but preparation for a SLFP government with Mahinda as Prime Minister ,and he will become the executive PM a (for as long as he lives.)

    Ranil had a golden opportunity ,he missed the bus, and the MPS except for a very few ,all others were busy making hay while the sunshine.

    Can you imagine where we stand today?

      “Sri Lanka’s Police uniform is supposed to stand up & protect the innocent victims.”

      That was what I thought when I was young and very stupid.
      I wanted to join the police force to serve the people, arrest all the crooks, put them in prison, …………………… until one of my wise Elders took me by my hand to the side and told me off:
      “Stupid Vedda boy, you have been sitting on the fence until now and what a pity suddenly you have decided to join the crooks, thugs, sadists, ……… Go find a descent job you stupid boy. “

      I am glad I didn’t join the Police. It was a timely wise advice.

        You should not have listened too much to your elders. Imagine, if you enlisted with Sri Lanka Police. You could have even become the IGP. Police would be have had a superb reputation by now, under your highly ethical, visionary leadership. I would have been happy about my country.

        These Mudalalies mind their own business never became spies to Sinhala forces to kill Tamils ..but Muslims who lived and earned their living by trading in Tamil areas became spies ..collaborators to Sinhala army and indirectly responsible for untold hardship and destruction of Tamils.

      I think it was in 2007 STF was of accused of rounding up and raping more than 150 under aged young girls in the East. Mahinda was made aware of this heinous crime, nothing happened. I was told the members of the STF were transferred out of that particular area to another which means transferring a huge problem to another area as usual and not dealing with it head on.

    whats new.
    STF was created to deal with the Tamils. Dr Dayan Jayatillke the ex Diplomat has confessed elsewhere here in CT, to put the Tamils in their place as.

    whenever there is a riot against Tamils or Muslims, the general pattern is for the Govt to let it happen for two or three days. They need to convince the international community that they are taking some action. So they then deploy water cannons and STF to “disperse” the “hired mob”…not to arrest any one.

    But now if the rioters are from minority, the STF, RAF , ARMY will show their full might and “arrest” the “Terrorist”

        in filth at Muslims ? Is that what you want from them ? Are you sure
        in Temples you have Monks and not Goons ? You feed them and
        provide shelter in the name of a great human or villain ? Police , Army
        and Monks all in uniform have a job to perform . They are obliged by
        an oath to do their best of their undertaking ! There is ample evidence
        that not only in Kandy , also in the other parts of the country , these

      Who says Muslims are discriminated in Sri Lanka?
      Some UN idiots have named Sri Lanka as one of the most dangerous countries for Muslims!!!!!!!
      When Muslims have the freedom to establish 24 Mosques within a few square kilometers in Sinhala areas, a double the number of Buddhists temples were bulldozed and even the sacred lands belonging to temples were forcibly taken over by Muslims (eg: Kuragala).
      And Buddhists have no freedom to keep a Buddhist statue on the side of road let alone building or renovate a temple in the North.
      IT IS SINHALESE WHO ARE DISCRIMINATED IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY.
      Muslims and Tamils are enjoying full freedom in a country which belonged to another nation while the real owners who have a 2600 years of written history are restricted in certain areas.
      Sinhalese should have a backbone to show the real picture to the United Nations. We have ample proof.
      Seriously, I am looking for a Sinhalese man with a backbone to field as the Presidential candidate for 2019/2020 from the general public who could correct the distorted picture of Sinhalese and Sri Lanka.

        Many Muslims pray five times a day and they are ordered to pray in groups. So they build a masjid for group prayers in every neighborhood. Buddha on the other hand never ordered us to build temples. That is why the mosques out number temples. It is like every house having a kitchen, every Muslim neighborhood has a mosque. Religious Muslims are good people, they fear God, generous and peaceful. Non-religious Muslims are the culprits. It was reported that the four Muslims who caused this riot were a drunken group. Such people don’t go to mosques.

          Thank you for the explanation. I wish our temples in the North and the East were also not bulldozed or destroyed by Tamil and Muslim politicians. I know ordinary Tamils and Muslims in the North and the East are not party to it. Seeing the destruction of temples gives a heartache to Sinhalese Buddhist as there is no way to rebuild the ancient temples as they were.
          It is politicians who create unrest among Sinhalese, Muslims and Tamils. It is time people realize this. Divide and rule. Divide and bargain. Divide and blackmail. This is the basis of politics in Sri Lanka at present.

      Please also give a list of the Hindu temples destroyed by Muslims in the east and mosques or other structures built on these sites. Starting with the ancient historic Sivan temple in the Kattankudi area , that was deliberately converted to a beef stall by the local Wahhabi and politicians, triggering the Kattankudi Mosque attack by the Karuna group. Even now Muslims in the east a trying to use force to acquire Hindu places of worship and a land used by Hindus as a crematorium to burn their dead in Kalmunai area. A local Muslim professor is forcibly trying to acquire this land and the local Muslim police are helping him by remanding innocent Tamil Hindus in the area who are protesting about this move. Muslims only came to the east as refugees fleeing Portuguese persecution in west and then Sinhalese persecution in the same central provinces . King Senarath may have orchestrated their move to the east , however they were settled on Tamil lands and not Sinhalese lands. This would have never happened if not for the generosity of the local Tamil Vannimai chiefs and Tamil people , who took pity on them as fellow Tamils , despite being Muslim. They gave them lands and even Hindu Tamil Mukkuava women to start families and they are now repaying this kindness by trying to steal their land. You cannot cry about Mosques being destroyed in Sinhalese areas and then gleefully destroy Hindu temples with the help of the same police and armed forces in Tamil areas.

We need more renowned personalities like him to come out and condemn these events, and actually go further and call out the the unprincipled and spineless individuals who are responsible for allowing this to happen, namely the President, Prime Minister and the police chief.

    It is also appalling the kind of people who wear the uniform.

    Muslims outside North-East are different people they have supported Tamils much time in the past during troubles. but today they pay for what their brothers have done.
    Tamils know about Quran but how many Muslims know about Hinduism?

    This kind of behavior by the security forces will no doubt breath new life to into The Tamil Diaspora’s calls for action against Sri Lanka
    In cricket terms, we’ve just given them a free hit!

    The picture of the person is not clear. It looks as if a begger or homeless person with a different mental state is speaking here …how can you be so sure he is a thug? The forces can see him better ..and that may be why they are laughing and listening to him…

      I am sure CT knows what they are doing and should take the full responsibility of the video. Using a video to incite one ethnicity against the other is not acceptable and CT has its policies they themselves are abide. As this involved law enforcing officers, CT should provide details if there is any inquiry under laws attached to State Emergency.

    This proves beyond any element of doubt that when some people appealed to the DIG after the death of the victim to seek protection as they felt tension was building up HE (DIG) HAS TOLD THE PEOPLE TO GO HOME AND LOCK UP AND WAIT INSIDE THE HOUSE WE’LL LOOK AFTER. Lo and behold, few after the lights were cut off and the goons did justice to their racial urges by setting fire to the houses! This is DISGRACEFUL AND BLOODY SHAME ON THE REPUTATION OF OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT PERSONNEL. The Government should take stern action against these “blacksheeps” unless it is a Party to it!!!
