Wennapuwa – A Land Of Its Own? Pradeshiya Sabha Bans Muslim Vendors

SLPP politico – Wennappuwa Pradeshiya Sabha Chairman, in a blatant violation of the Constitution, has issued a letter prohibiting Muslim vendors from using the Dankotuwa Sathi pola premises claiming it is to ‘preserve peace’ in the area.

Wennappuwa Pradeshiya Sabha Chairman K V Susantha Perera in a letter dated June 24, 2019 has imposed a temporary ban on Muslim vendors from using the weekly fair premises stating the move has been implemented to preserve ‘peace in the area’.

He notes in the letter that residents and other non-Muslim vendors have brought safety concerns before him following the Easter attacks and therefore the temporary ban has been imposed in order to prevent any tense situation.

PS Chairman’s letter seeped in racism only seems to bear security concerns against Muslim vendors and not the customers who may frequent the fair to shop from non-Muslim vendors.

Below is the letter in full:

      This shows that the country still has people who have courage to stand up to Islamic racism, who are not corrupt and power hungry relying on money and votes of Muslims.

        “This shows that the country still has people who have courage to stand up to Islamic racism,”

        I suspect they have been sitting on their brain.

        ” who are not corrupt and power hungry relying on money and votes of Muslims.”

        Maybe.
        How do we know Wennappuwa Pradeshiya Sabha Chairman is not covering up his tracks, money trail, ……………..which is leading up to many of the Muslim Mudalali’s?

        Are you trying to baptize Wennappuwa Pradeshiya Sabha Chairman back to Buddhism?

        How is that Islamic racism? What is he standing up for? Perera Lanka you were missing in action for sometime and came back with a classic Perera Lanka comment. Are you ignorant or an idiot (as the literal word)

          You are the biggest idiot. When Muslims want to do business in Sinhala areas but do not allow Sinhalese to do business in Muslim areas is racism. Wennappuwa is a catholic area which was peaceful and tolerated Muslims despite their crookedness. Why did Islamic terrorists kill 250 innocent Catholics when Catholics did not do any harm to them. This is a reaction to that dastardly bombings supported by several Muslims though Sinhala politicians on their pay roll are saying only a few did it..

            Lanka Perera – No use man! Police lifted the ban, and Marawila Magistrate has issued notice on Perera to appear before Magistrate Court on Friday to show cause, failing which, he would face action for inciting racial hatred – WOW, he is a Perera too.

              Islamic idiot, do not be in a hurry. This was done with full support of all members of the pradeshiya sabha including UNPers. Do you think that government wants Catholics who showed restraint on the face of grave provocation of seeing 250 of their innocent people killed, to rise up against Muslims. Not even that crooked cardinal can stop it, if any harm is done. Police lifting the ban will be ineffective if Muslim traders are told in no uncertain terms not to step into the town. When Muslims are wetting their pants do you think that they will disobey the order.

Also encourage your buddy that you will get him some Kahata saha bannis in case the guy doesn’t come out after Friday. More you become a racist, a better joker we have here.

        In Tamil areas Sinhalese police and security have sold their soul for biryani and cash from Musulims.

        These services ready to go to any extent to suppress Tamils to make Musulims pay masters happy.

        When you feed dogs with fresh meet it will one day bite the master.

        Kalmunai incident shows still Modayas government support Musulims.

        Lanka Perera,

        Talk to Tamils about Para-Sinhala Para-Buddhist racism.

        Why do these racists have names like Perera? Because they kicked the Para-Portuguese asses?

        The constitution and law and order must prevail.

        This order by the PARA-Perera must be challenged,

      Check everyone who enters the pola? Bomb scares will keep people away.

      What about the constitutional rights.

      Para-Muslims, go ahead and challenge it in the Supreme Court Now.

      Traitor Sirisena’s unconstitutional coup was challenged in the Supreme Court. Just do it!

        “This actually is the reason for all the anti Muslim hate.Business competition. It has been going on for decades in places like Kiribathgoda.”

        Its been going on centuries.
        Sinhala/Buddhist can’t stand competition.
        Look at every stages of this island’s post independent economic history, starting from 1948 citizenship ACT, Sinhala Only Official Language Act, University Entrance qualifications, back door recruitment to state employment, nationalisation of various industries and import control, promotion policies, …. intermittent riots to create a level playing field in business, no to Indo – Lanka Bridge, no to Indo – Lanka free trade, No to a more liberal constitution, …. …………………. nyet, nyet, nyet, ……….

        It always has been nyet for every progressive proposals.

        You are right.
        The 1915 riots was about business rivalry.But the Muslims adapted to the environment of envy. Then there was peace.
        When opportunities came by way of gem trade in the early 1970s and later Middle East trade and employment they revived old ghosts.
        Added to that is now Muslims doing well in the academic and professional fields.
        Kiribathgoda was one of the most blatant. There are other parts of the country where Muslims have been pushed aside in more cunning ways by the racists.

          S.J,
          If you visit 1st cross street in Pettah, you will see how the Muslims have cornered the electronic spares business. The sleepy Sinhala shops of 40 years ago have been replaced by supermarket style Muslim outfits where the goods are actually cheaper than e-bay or Singapore. The Sinhalese don’t understand the value of hard work and innovation.

      This is the result of changing your life style and language for Bedouin Arab Money.

      A tiny Maldives say a big NO to Arabs indicating we are Asians we don’t want your culture.

      Who are cowards.?

      Of course today every village think about the safety of their people first because there are lots for fans of “72 Virgins ” still walking on the streets.

      justice,
      Whether the Pradeshya Sabha banned the Muslim Vendors or not, hereafter no Sinhalese and Tamils will never go to any Muslim shop and buy goods or eat at their places. No one can order the public to buy goods or eat at the Muslim shops/restaurants. Reason is fear for life. I have my doubt whether even the persons who condemn such ban will ever eat at Muslim shops. Hisbullah, Rishard Badurdeen & company will have to bear the responsibility.

      Suppose suddenly one Musulim trader wants 72 Virgins..no idea how many people will die.

      This is just a precaution..Soon open markets need Army security.

        How do you stop those who want 72 virgins coming into the pola and blasting themselves? How do you stop bombs being planted in the other vendors goods?

    These are the lowest strata of the vending class – Market vendors. These traders are not known to Ranil or Hakeem or Hezbollah. So, they are banned from trading in the market. There is no mention about compensation for their loss of income, from the town Council. Muslim lawyers wasting their time behind their women to cover them with Burqa, but will not file a “Loss of Income” Case by TC’s decision. But Billion rupees racketeer like Hezbollah is safe with his promises of making Tamil Blood River to flow.

    But, in the meantime, Hakeem worked on Kalmunai North upgrading. Now Vajira Abeywardena has said he has cancelled all the deals he made with the Buddhist monks in Kalmunai. He is talking with Hakeem about what to do for Tamils request to upgrade Kalmunai. Stupid TNA Comedian Sumanthiran carrying one more paper in his pocket with Ranil’s promise to appoint an Accountant. Tamil news is saying an accountant was not being appointed as promised in the paper Sumanthiran bragged about. Mano Ganesan was needed to be in Kalmunai to free Sumanthiran from Eastern Tamil crowd and send him back to Colombo. If he needs Mano Ganesan next to him to walk around in East, what part of the Tamils is he leading? If that was hostile crowd, but they were following on Kalmunai, where TNA stopped, then why didn’t he leave them alone? Why did he walk into that crowd? No politicians is doing the Modayathanam Sumanthiran is doing these days. All the 225 8th graders are well aware what to do in politics other than the TNA Modaya, Sumanthiran. Can Sumanthiran allow Mano Ganesan to lead TNA instead of Sumanthiran?

    It is blatantly obvious that politicians in SL, particularly, Provincial Councillors, are uneducated, usually, they are the village thugs with political patronage who have no idea of the fundamental rights of citizens or the laws of the country. It is up to the Police to ensure the safety of every citizen, irrespective of their religion or ethnicity, because they are all born & bred citizens of this country. Preventing a trader to conduct business because of religious belief or ethnicity in the pretext of maintaining peace is not only unconstitutional but wrong in every sense. Anybody supporting this theory has obviously no idea are racist & uneducated with no brain matter.
    Hitler did the same to gain power by preventing Jewish businesses to operate & the end result escalated into a war & if I am not mistaken, we are heading in the same direction. The yobs have inherited SL.
