Violence, Media Blackout Continues

Tensions have continued throughout the night spilling over to the Welipenna area with 12 houses reportedly burnt by Sinhalese mobs, according to reports from the ground.

Confirmed reports now say that 3 houses were burnt while several others were attacked by goons rnumbering around 500, who were armed with petrol bombs and swords.

The mobs have torched the houses completely with the people feeling to the nearby mosques as a result of the violence.

Muslim attackedAlthough last nights the situation was brought under control sporadic violence has continued throughout the night despite the heavy Military presence, the Colombo Telegraph learns.

Yesterday ended with Politicians of all parties swarming in to Aluthgama and adjoining areas.

Sources of the STF speaking to the Colombo Telegraph revealed that the “Sinhalese mobs” had gathered and attempted re- enter Aluthgama and Dharga town but were chased away by the STF. Few youth who were arrested and handed over the Police were released later after pressure from “the top” according to highly placed Police sources. The Police had showed their disapproval at the attempt to release those arrested,but were compelled to release them as they had been informed that the arrests could trigger a further bout of violence. Police spokesman Ajith Rohana speaking to the media confirmed that no arrests have been made with regard to the riots or the murder.

The Muslim parties had reportedly convened an urgent meeting but the outcome of the meeting nor if the meeting took lace is unclear.

Dry rations and medical supplies are currently being sent the affected areas with Sinhalese and Muslims in Colombo contributing to the relief measures.

The government has not yet provided any relief to the affected people, although the Disaster Management Centre (DMC) was quoted by media as saying that they were looking into the matter.

The violence however has now been confined to Aluthgama and surrounding areas with no overnight incidents being reported from any other area of the country, yet.

Earlier three shops in Badulla were stoned and an incident was reported from Mawanella.

Journalists from the local media speaking to the Colombo Telegraph said that none of their coverage was carried on any TV or print media.

Video Journalists who visited the affected areas yesterday told us that ” not a single channel carried our footage”. They also said that entire Muslim businesses and houses were “burnt down to ashes”.

Muslims have taken refuge in all surrounding mosques.

The government of Sri Lanka is yet to make a statement condemning the violence and have not taken any action against the perpetrators.

The funerals of two persons killed in the attack were held yesterday in Aluthgama. The two men aged 30 and 38 were killed as a result of ” haemorrhage” resulting from blows to the “head” according to the post morterm.

No arrests have been made in connection to the murders thus far.

      Peace Lover, I wish you hear soon that all S-Buddhist temples outside Lanka burn down and all Gnanasaras in those temples are begging to save their balls… Then you may have to say ‘Oh Sinhalese Buddha Allah help Gannas”. (This Sinhalese Buddha I refereed is not that great man lived in India)

    “The Muslim parties had reportedly convened an urgent meeting but the outcome of the meeting nor if the meeting took lace is unclear.”

    Hakeem made a sober speech that he is ashamed as he has not resigned. Then went on and said he some idea and he will do right thing at right time. These are appearing in the Tamil news. apparently Hakeem Doctrine is suitable to handle political parties only. BBS is a hell bent religious organization. So he is thinking for new Doctrine to find out how to dodge a religious organization. Until that he is waiting for the right auspices time.

    Mervyn Silva has said that he will be sleeping in the mosque so that nobody can break them. The new problem for Muslims is, Curfew is on. Mervyn Silva going to sleep in the Mosque(I do not know which mosque he meant). Yet, Thank god! Unlike Hindu Temples, Muslims do not carry any Jewelry or expensive alloy Statues in Mosques, . Otherwise who knows which white Truck going to drive around that Mosque tonight?

      Politically speaking Hakeem and the SLMC are opportunist swine.
      Leave the cabinet? Close the door massive bribes!! Forget it.
      Not even if Gota cuts of Mohamed’s b***s and hangs them from a tree
      will these pigs give up their opportunity to make money.

    In any civilized country the entire BBS organization will be banned. its assets seized. It’s members lay and clergy put behind bars and charged. But in Sri lanka the SOD makes sure the rioters dispatched from Colombo get the protection they require to carry out what they need while the minister of justice a Muslim, will wrings his hands, utter a platitude and look the other way. The SOD knows before hand that this is exactly what the justice minister will do. So what is the motive behind this for there has to be one. It is called voter suppression. These Muslims are not going to vote for the Rajapakshe’s anyhow. They also will not stay at home. They will all vote in a referendum or a presidential election for the opposition. By subjecting them to this level of violence is the only way to make them not vote. There is a snow balls chance in hell for this government to win at a national presidential level election fairly. Even with all their dirty tricks they may harbor doubts of winning an outright 50%. This is one way to employ even dirtier methods to tip the scales further in their favor. What with Modi in power in India they have nothing to fear.

      The problems go before Modi to an earlier era, to Monk Mahanama lies and imaginations.

      Since only about 10 to 15% Sinhala Buddhists are racists and not following true Buddhism, there is a chance that the Buddhist vote will split, as most Buddhist are appalled.

      The issue is with the Opposition, not banging a clear strong leader.

    Gnanasara should be prosecuted by the international criminal courts for inciting genocide. in his speech he threatens to wipe out all the muslims and other “parayas” that lay a hand on the sinhalese.
