Why Is President Sirisena Silent On Gintota Violence? 

By Latheef Farook

Latheef Farook

Pampering racism – No lessons learnt

Why President Maithripala Sirisena remains silent and indifferent towards the well-coordinated attacks on Muslims in and around Gintota? The mobs burnt Muslim owned houses, shops and looted valuables besides attacking mosques? Putting things together Muslims in the area now begin to suspect that these attacks by hired hooligans were planned and coordinated with police, Special Task Force, STF and politicians.

According to reports face covered outsiders to hide their identities were brought in from Boossa and Rathgama by buses and Lorries. Some collaborators in the area showed them Muslim houses and shops. Muslims claim that these attacks have nothing to do with Sinhala-Muslims relations. Both communities now begin to realize they were victims of racist politics to rob Muslims of their wealth and weaken their economy.

The people in the area point out that a UNP Muslim PC member Mohamed Kiyas confused everyone by attacking Sinhalese households to show that Muslims also attacked Sinhalese houses. This is the reason why they strongly suspect political hands behind these attacks.

Now the question is who were the politicians who were behind these attacks?

Who brought these hired thugs and why did a UNP Muslim PC member attack Sinhalese households?

Following these attacks Muslims express their loss of faith in President Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe to ensure their security and property.

When President Sirisena told in public meetings that he would rein in racists, restore law and order and bring about communal harmony besides eliminating corruption, beleaguered Muslims trusted and voted for him. However it didn’t take long for them to realize that when it comes to pampering racism and racist attacks on them, President Sirisena is not different from Rajapaksa brothers who were responsible for the sufferings of Aluthgama, Beruwala and Dharga Town Muslims. However Muslims never thought that there would be another Aluthgama, Beruwala and Dharga Town in Gintota under Maithri-Ranil team who took the whole country for a ride with their false promises.

Judging from the performances of the government since elected to office in January 2005, Muslims now begin to think of the need to protect themselves and their properties. Attacking Muslim areas, destroying their residential and commercial, industrial and movable properties have become blood sports for both Rjapaksa and the Maithri-Ranil governments.

The government’s policies remain hostile to Muslims here and abroad. For example it is common knowledge that Sri Lanka is absorbed into Washington, London and Tel Aviv responsible for invading, bombing and destroying Muslim countries, killing millions, shattering ,societies and driving millions of innocent people to refugees camps to languish in appalling condition to turn these countries into wasteland.

India under the extremely anti-Muslim BJP, front for RSS fascists, have joined the Washington-London-Tel Aviv  axis into which Sri Lanka’s pro-western government has been absorbed into

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe is known for his pro-western and pro-Israeli policy. Muslims still remember how he told Muslim parliamentarians who wanted to condemn the March 2003 US led European invasion of Iraq “if you wanted to condemn you can leave the government and do so”. 

Continuing the Rajapaksa government policy of opening the doors for Israel, sworn enemy of Islam and Muslims, this government has rolled red carpet to Israelis, godfathers of terrorism in the Middle East and the architect of the so called war on terrorism associating violence with Islam, demonize Islam and Muslims to justify invading, raping and ravaging Muslim countries to loot their wealth and destroy people Muslim societies.

For example Israel is the only country which supplied and still supplying weapons to Myanmar’s military junta facilitate ifs genocide on Rohingya Muslims. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, soaked in Guajarati Muslims blood, paid an official visit to Myanmar while genocide of Muslims were underway.

In appears in keeping with Washington-Tel Aviv-New Delhi anti-Muslim nexus the Sri Lanka’s so called government of good governance also failed to condemn the genocide of Rohingya Muslims. This is the island’s foreign policy.

However hearts of President Sirisena and the Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe melted at the shooting incident at Las Vegas. In his message of condolence to the victims of Las Vegas shooting President Maithripala Sirisena expressed his sympathies stating via Twitter: “Las Vegas shooting is a heinous act. My sympathies are with loved ones of the victims and the people of the US in this hour of grief”. 

Similar message was sent by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe. 

The question is where were their human kindness to more than 1.3 million Rohingya Muslims, described as the most persecuted people in the world, when they were tortured, killed, children thrown alive into burning fire, raped and gang raped Muslim women by Myanmar’s military junta?   

Both President Sirisena and Prime Minister Wickremesinghe have forgotten that Muslim votes also played a crucial role in electing them to power-especially UNP to power after losing more than two dozen elections.

This is disaster. Israelis are also here and they have their own agenda which most politicians and even most in the mainstream media do not understand. Israel’s only agenda wherever they enter is to screen, pick up and finance mercenaries to demonize Islam and prepare the grounds to unleash violence against Muslims.

This is the reason why knowledgeable people in Sri Lanka fear that they would do the same thing here in the island and pit racist elements against the island’s Muslims.

One should not forget that killing Muslims only because they are Muslims is the new world order since the collapse of former Soviet Union in 1979 and the US emerging as the sole super in the world. 

This is the reason why Muslims fear that the Sri Lankan government’s indifferent to anti-Muslim attacks may encourage racist elements here, with close links to Myanmar’s saffron murderous thug Asin Wirathu and his Ma Ba Tha organization, to commit same crime against the island’s Muslims.

Judging from the growing hostility, many fear that Israelis would get Sinhala racist mercenaries to do to Muslims what they did to Muslims worldwide. The racist politics of both the United National Party and the Sri Lanka Freedom virtually destroyed this country which was a role model for developing world for political and economic stability. Communal harmony. 

This is the reason why almost seven decades after the independence, Sri Lanka remains one of the most mismanaged countries in the world known for corruption of epidemic proportion. Shameful state of affairs is such that never a day passes without the media highlighting not only the corruption of people in the Rajapaksa government but also of the present government which came to power with the slogan of eliminating corruption.

People who pinned their hope on Srisena-Ranil government are deeply disappointed and are discussing the need for a third force to save the country. The mood of the people in general is the feeling that time has come for responsible elements in the Sinhala civil society to come forward and free the community and the country from the racist politics which have all the potentials to turn this country once again into a killing field. 

It is also time that the Muslim community free itself from corrupt politicians and equally corrupt and controversial so called mullahs, come out of their self-imposed isolation and join hands with responsible elements in the majority community to reintegrate with the main stream.

Unless such precautionary measures are taken it is likely that powerful global forces which demonize Islam and slaughter Muslims worldwide will turn their attention to Muslims in South Asia turn this country into another killing field.

    Because the President knows that Muslims are asking for it and he doesn’t want to get involved. Would the Saudi king comment on matters where migrants to the Kingdom are abused mercilessly?

    Would Allah (SBUH) – shame be upon him, comment when Muslims invaded and converted the locals in Afghanistan, Malaysia, Bangladesh etc? Given, that everything happens according to him, did he enjoy watching the massacre of locals who refused to convert?

      Lateef Farouk,

      Why is President Sirisena Silent of Gintota Violence. Several reasons.

      1. Every time ara-Sinhala goes berserk, and go after Para-Muslims for any rrason or no-reason, and President putting his nose is not to his advantage

      It is called self-interest, because his audience is Para Para-Sinhala Buddhists.

      Remember, except for the Native Veddah Aethho, all others are Paras, Paradeshis, foreigners, in the Land of Native VeddahAethho.

      Besides President Sirisena will get arrest the crooks and killers, and there are claims that he has no backbone, “Konda”.

      This is the Para-Sinhala” civilization”, following Mara, just like the Wahhabi-Salafi ‘Civilization’ following, Satan, Iblis.

        What do you want President to do, writer, Latheef Farook?
        .
        Tamils and Muslims are downright racists. They preach Sinhalese not to be racists when they are not. Sinhalese should be as racist as Tamils and Muslims. I am not talking about violence which I denounce always or savage racism practiced in India. I am talking about indisputable political extinction of Sinhalese. Nationalism is not strong enough to protect our land and the Sinhalese race anymore. There are over 100 million Tamils and 1 billion Muslims in the world with large number of countries where their languages are spoken. There are only 15 million Sinhalese in the world and Sri Lanka is the only country Sinhalese is spoken. 93% Buddhists in Sri Lanka in 1988 have come down to 70.2%. There should be a strong Sinhalese political party for Sinhalese Buddhists, similar to Tamils and Muslims.
        .
        Sinhalese need to be prepared for eventualities. There is high chance if Ranil contests, he will promise the premiership to a Tamil in order to garner Tamil votes. There was a similar notion about Gotabhaya too if he becomes the President, a Tamil should be the PM. Even Ven. Abhayatissa Thero recently stated that he would support a Tamil PM instead of the federal constitution. Where are we heading for? Our selfish Sinhalese politicians will offer anything and everything to gain Tamil and Muslim votes. These are the politicians who proposed 13 + and Federal Constitution. Even Sampathan has changed his tune – self-rule for Tamils to self-rule for Tamil speaking people, meaning Tamils+Muslims. In the light of the above, a strong Sinhalese ONLY political party is needed same like Tamils/Muslim Only political parties and Sinhalese, especially ALL Sinhalese Buddhists should be united and vote for a single Sinhalese presidential candidate without dividing their votes.

          you sound defeatist , why don’t you understand that you Sinhalese are also a Dravidian race and are closely related to Tamils in fact blood relatives of the Tamils. Instead of appreciating the commonality between the Sinhala and Tamil communities ( racially they are one) why do you think that We Tamils in the Northeast and you Sinhalese in the rest of Srilanka can’t live peacefully .

          Mr Champa best solution is to amend your Roman Law regarding marriage and allow Buddhist to take two wives, restrict family planning teaching to Buddhist. In no time you will see Buddhist hitting a target of 95%. To make 100% sure of the target, let Buddhist priests to marry.

      @ Rt. Lt Reginald Shamal Perera, you have proved to be a retired racist bigot. People like you are a curse to this country and would never allow others to live peacefully. Sri lanka is not a Saudi Arabia or Myanmar. Word Allah means God in English, even you Christians use this word in your Arabic language Bible. Go and read it idiot!

      Stupid scumbag Shamal…. The problem we are facing in Sri Lanka is not about Muslims or any of their doing…its the GOVIGAMA BASTARDS who are running this country with their criminal minded and coming from the evil Jewish/Brahmin/Telungu background which is causing all the troubles. The shit bloody Govigama elite criminals are holding onto power handed over to them by their blood brethren, the JEWS who ran the British Empire and when the time came for their departure they chose the CRIMINAL GOVIGAMA racists to run on their behalf. So, the British do not have to run by being in person in the country. They are now running the entire world with their JEW blooded criminals who have infiltrated and living as the locals, as in our case the GOVIGAMA criminal elites. They own the Media, the Govt., the Financial Institutes, the economy, everything that has political and legal power and even using the Buddhism as their MAFIA entity through which they keep the low rung of the society fighting through racist preachings and the elites live at the top of the pyramid (with no fight among them partying and having fun). The Govigama criminal political leaders and their stupid, uneducated, cheap minded, corrupt to the core minions and racist monks live happily inciting the majority to destroy the minority communities who are defenseless. Shamal Perera is one of those Govigama minions deployed to keep the incitements alive to destroy this beautiful country that has an ugly Govigama criminal lot.

    Why the silence? Short answer.

    He is a Sinhala Buddhust from the deep south. By default he is a racist. His thinking is the Muslims deserved it to keep them in place.

      Burt, what do you mean ‘by default he is a racist’? Real racists like you, give decent Tamils a bad name. It is people like you who keep the fires of hatred burning. You are no different to the people you condemn.

    Lather Farook
    You said that UNP pC Member Kiyas attacked Sinhalese households. If that is a fact he should be taken into custody and charged.You think the Sinhalese are going to be passive and stand by with folded arms when their people and households are attacked? You must be a dreamer. If what you say is true, one cannot blame the Sinhalese for the ferocity of their response. The Muslims asked for it and got it. No question about that. The bigger question is what the elected government doing about this.?So far neither Sirisena nor Ranil have made any statements.It is a well known fact that As far as the international scene is concerned Ranil is pro Israel and anti Palestine. International politics is well beyond the intellectual capacity of Sirisena who will support any bloc or country that will invite him and his extended family on a state visit.! Sadly that is the reality.

      RW already have visited the area Sinhala and Muslim villages and heard their grievances,
      Also Muslim PC Kiyas was arrested last week and processed, I believe he is still in remand as we speak. So dear readers please check your facts before any blame against one another.

        Hello Captain
        You say that RW visited the area and heard their grievances. That is not the issue. He did not issue a public statement to settle the tensions. You say that Kiyas is in remand. That must be information available only to you. No where in the SL press was it reported. So where do we check our facts.? From you ? That is hilarious!

    Hatred begets hatred; violence begets violence- Ancient words spoken by the Buddha, sadly practiced in abeyance and selectively.

    You raise some good points. It brings back memories of UNP thugs in 1983 Black July. JR tried to wash his hands off but everyone knew who was behind the attacks when the UNP was ruling the country with an iron fist.

    Sad, but this sort of violence seems to be ingrained in our South Asian blood. You raise the issue of Modi being complicit in the 2002 violence against innocent Muslims in Gujarat. As a result of that, Modi could not even get a visa to come to USA; but now they are best of allies and very strong military partners. So nothing India does will be condemned by USA. Then look at how brutal Pakistan was to East Pakistan. So many issues, so many cruel people who are of all religions.

    Hope the attackers be then Sinhala or Muslim be apprehended and charged soon. No funny business. As CBK once told me “If Jihadi radicalism comes to Sri Lanka, it will be far worse than LTTE”. This was before she was attacked by a Tamil Tiger suicide bomber. She knew the global ramifications of radical islam and Wahabi terrorism. After she was attacked she still said she does not hate Tamil people for what one group of Tamils did to her. I am not defending her or her politics, just narrating some conversations I had with her. Because if Sinhalese keep pushing Muslim youth, radicalism will take root like it did in so many nations and their brand of terrorism is extreme savagery and intolerance of any and all other faiths. The Tigers are boy scouts compared to ISIS. Do you want that to happen to Sri Lanka? and what happens if Arab nations who hire tens of thousands of Sinhalese, Tamils(Hindus and Muslim) stop hiring Sinhalese and Hindus? and then what happens when Sri Lanka runs out of money gained from their remittances from the Middle East. NIP IT IN The BUD. Stop targeted attacks on any community now or face massive consequences of an Arab boycott of our labor and exports.

    You should condemn unequivocally as well the savagery of ISIS, Al Qaeda, and Boko Haram. You question the silence on the Rohingya crisis. Fair enough. But you use selective criticism and ignore the mass rape of people by Pakistan army under Tikka Khan. And the ongoing rape, BOILING ALIVE of people including women by ISIS, beheading, rape and sexual slavery too. It is disappointing to see you going on a tirade without being balanced. Maybe you are secret Wahabist? This week 305 people died at the hands of Muslim Islamic radical terrorists in an attack in Sinai? Are you not aware of that? or will you blame the US and Israel for the savagery of the Muslim Wahabists? Tikka Khan was called the Butcher of Bengal for a reason. Tens of thousands of Bengali women were RAPED by West Pakistani Sind, Baloch, Punjabi Pakistani troops.

    During the 1971 Bangladesh war for independence, members of the Pakistani military and supporting Islamist militias from Jamaat e Islami raped between two and four hundred thousand Bangladeshi women in a systematic campaign of genocidal rape.

    During the war, a fatwa in Pakistan declared that the Bengali freedom fighters were ‘Hindus’ and that their women could be taken as the ‘booty of war’.Imams and Muslim religious leaders publicly declared that the Bengali women were ‘gonimoter maal’ (war booty) and thus they openly supported the rape of Bengali women by the Pakistani Army. Pakistani soldiers raped between 200,000 and 400,000 Bangladeshi women and girls.

    The activists and leaders of Islamic parties were also involved in the rapes and abduction of women. Scholars have suggested that rape was used to terrorise both the Bengali-speaking Muslim majority and the Hindu minority of Bangladesh.

    The rapes caused thousands of pregnancies, births of war babies, abortions, incidents of infanticide and suicide, and, in addition, led to ostracisation of the victims. Recognised as one of the major occurrences of war crimes anywhere,the atrocities ended after surrender of the Pakistani military and supporting Razaker militias

    Just a Factually and ideologically bankrupt religious extremist. You yourself acknowledge that a Muslim politician, KIYAS attacked Sinhala households. You are not questioning why sinhala people did not attack KIYAS and burn down his house. Instead, you are looking for Sinhala politicians who are behinds him. After that, you talk every other thing happened din Sri lanka and those happened in Myanmar. What is wrong with you. — why don’t you say that is is allah’s wish. If this happened in a muslim majority country as Bangladesh or Maldive island, they would have destroyed even the buddhist temples. See how muslims doing attacks in Buddhist majority Myanmar.

    Muslims who leave the faith often face abuse and violence – but a grassroots group that’s touring American colleges is trying to help.
    Ten years ago, Muhammad Syed became an ex-Muslim.
    Born in the US, he grew up in Pakistan believing “100 per cent” in Islam.
    “You don’t encounter doubt,” he says. “Everyone around you believes it.”
    And then, in 2007, he realised something. He didn’t believe at all.
    As a boy, Muhammad was interested in “astronomy, the space programme, Star Trek, Star Wars”.
    He calls himself liberal. His parents had PhDs.
    He moved back to the US in his early 20s, a few months before 9/11. When America went to war, he joined anti-war protests.
    At the same time, some of his Pakistani friends became “ultra conservative”.
    “There was one guy in particular,” says Muhammad. “I knew him through high school.
    “We were in the same college. We were similar people – he was liberal like me. Then he grew this foot-and-a-half long beard.”
    His friend’s outlook “scared” Muhammad.
    “He was talking about torture in the grave (an Islamic belief in punishment after death),” he says.
    “And he was talking about it being a real thing that people have witnessed – a very superstitious type of thinking.
    “Coming from a scientific background [and] going into that, was a little bizarre. So I spent about a year or so looking into religion.”
    Muhammad studied the Koran, the hadiths (reports describing the Prophet Muhammad), and secondary texts.
    “My perspective was ‘Islam is humanistic and scientific’ – the sort of thing you’re told,” he says.
    “I wanted to show my friend his perspective was wrong. But when I went through it, it was very clear that his perspective was actually the Islamic perspective.
    “He was right and I was wrong.”

    THE HIGHLANDS OF INDIA Volume I 1882
    Maj Gen DJF Newall

    The Portuguese, under Almeida, in the early years of the 16th century found Ceylon harrassed by Arabs and others, and persuaded the king — then residing at Columbo — to pay a tribute of cinnamon in return for his alliance to expel them.

    Riots and Martial Law in Ceylon, 1915 ( 1916 )
    Ponnambalam Ramanathan

    The Hambayas are Muhammadan immigrants from the east coast of South India. They are not permanently settled in Ceylon. They do not as a rule bring their wives and families to the Island. Sojourning in it for a year or two at a time for purposes of trade, they return periodically with their savings to South India. They do not intermarry with any of the other Muhammadan communities of Ceylon, the largest of which consists of those who have been settled in the Island for several centuries, and who from the days of the Portuguese Government have been known to the Europeans as the ” Moors.” They number about 235,000 souls. But the Hambayas do not count more than 33,000, and of this number it is well to bear in mind that those who opposed the issue of licenses to conduct the Buddhist processions in Gampola and Kandy were principally the trustees of the mosques in those towns and their immediate supporters.

    Understanding The Causes Of The Sinhala-Muslim Conflict In Sri Lanka

    Tilak Samaranayaka –

    It is, however, believed that the growth of population of the Sri Lankan Tamils is quite comparable with the Sinhalese. Although the size of the Indian Tamils was quite close to the size of the Muslim population in 1981, they added only 92,000 over the 30-year period compared with one million by the Muslims.

      Niro,

      Very interesting statistics indeed. A Moor population of 235,000 now over 2.5 million. Mind boggling to say the least.

      To all those Colombo based butt wagging Sinhalese Pontics,

      The Muslim population is growing exponentially. You will never get that number down to the original level of 235,000. NEVER. Even if there were to be Gas ovens and concentration camps like our German Aryan Brethren did, we will never eradicate this. It’s already too late.

    So in the opinion of Brother Latheef Farook, MR and his cohorts actively encouraged the establishment of anti-Muslim groups while MS & RW are continuing with this trend.
    So, what does he expect the Muslims to do next ?
    Vote for the ‘Rathu-UNP Karayas’ ?
    And if that too turns out to be a damp squib, then what ….. ?

    Are the Muslims actually expecting the Government to unilaterally resolve this issue ?
    Do the Muslims really believe any ambitious, power-hungry national Politician will want to say or do something positive regarding the ‘problems’ of the Muslim Community that would jeopardize his standing among 70% of the voters ?

    Dream On, Muslims …….

    Establishing peace, harmony and reconciliation between two embittered communities is a give-and-take, two-way process. There will never be any substantial progress in this regard if one of the parties to the conflict believes that they alone are the victims. And therefore that their violated ‘rights’ have to be safeguarded by the Government. Have they for a moment even asked themselves whether they have inadvertently or unwittingly violated the ‘rights’ of the other community ?

    But then, how can a community that cannot even ensure the Marriage & Divorce rights of their own females be expected to be empathetic about the ‘rights’ of another community ?

    Can the Muslim community identify a single significant major course of action that they have contributed towards the establishment of peace, harmony and re-conciliation in our Motherland during the past 5 years ?

    Have they, for starters, even commenced trying to comprehend as to how they are perceived as a community through the eyes of the majority of non-Muslim Sri Lankans ? Or, are they continuing to labor under the delusion that their self-image is flawless ?

      “can the Muslims identify a significant major course of action that they have contributed towards the establishment of peace…..?
      Yes, and they have remained “PEACEFUL” and loyal without taking up arms and creating their own rebel movement even for their defense while ethnic cleansing is unleashed on that community. This will not be for long before they are forced to take-up arms and when that time comes, the rest of us will be running with our tails in our rear like we fell for the rumors, “Kotiya Ennawo! Onna Kotti gahanawo”. Rumors that sent men and women running for their lives, shedding amuday and nickers! Do you remember those days ekelbroom when the ekels went right through our rear? Do you recall the blood bath of a 30 year civil war and the suffering of our rural masses? Would you like the Muslims or any other minorities to repeat the horrors when dumb idiots like you fail to learn lessons from our darkest of days in our history. Now tell me if the Muslims have remained or contributed for national reconciliation and peace to this establishment that has been a curse for their survival.
      “Jathi wadaya wapurannei nathuwe hittapun modayao (Don’t fuel racial tensions you fool). Thopith Thunn ‘Sinhalei’ manasikka roagiyekdha? (Are you one of those tri Sinhalie mental patients?)

    Yes. President must act as a man with a back born by arresting all Muslim killers like Muhammad Niyas and his pro-supporters like this writer. People are waiting to see the justice. If not Muslims like in Alutgama will accuse Sinhalese. In both places fundamental, lunatic muslims arouse the fire. Then begged from from fundamental Soudi Arabi. This is a self-made game to get muslim-countries money and destroy the good name of the country,

    Latheef is conveying the angst of the silent majority Lankans in general and Lankan Muslims in particular.
    Following the 2014 Aluthgama incident, the Gintota incident proves that the next one will happen but where? The silver lining though is the attitude of the present GoSL to that of the previous GoSL.
    Latheef blames MS for inaction. Maybe. But the silence of the Muslim MPs is truly deafening. Latheef at some stage rubs in that the Muslims have lost confident in the present GoSL. Will he get the Muslim MPs to bring a no-confidence motion? It may not succeed but will be symbolic.

    By the way, right now MMDA1951 has surfaced yet again. MS is silent but so are the Muslim MMPs. Why? Because Mufthi Rizwe, Chairman All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulema (ACJU) will not allow them.

    Latheef, instead blaming the majority, good for you to adjust mistakes done by your people. see your people don’t allow women to be fashionable, what a pity some women cover the body from top to bottom. But when it comes to business your people sell fashionable items. Do you think that something prescribed bad for your ladies is good for non-Muslims, ridiculous , set of policy less fools.

Farook talking about discrimination look in to your own misdeeds.. if you have a faintest of fare spine come forward and talk in public about what is hapening in madrasa school, the hate what is being preach there..you can’t because you will be done with your own, comiunity for being moderate or what ever you think you are.

      You belongs to those modaya class and cannot thing of on your own and write. All those Muslim bashing modayas in CT columns only write what they have read in western media’s Islam bashing. Western medias says all Madarasas in Pakistan and Afghanistan preach hatred and violence. Buddhist, Christian or Hindu religious schools will teach only their religion, so same with Madarasas teaching their own religion. If you know any Madarasas teaching hatred and violence, do little investigation and inform the police or proper authorities. You shit moda pragee just don’t copy western media.

    The president and pm have no time to attend to these because the country is being cursed with natural disasters one after the other, the cost of these disasters are so huge that the destruction of properties of Muslims and their wealth is peanuts comparatively.

    My suggestion is to find a way to migrate from this country, it’s no longer the beautiful peace loving country it was, the saffron clad thugs have poisoned the minds of the Sinhalese and have brought about this curse to this country and you can now see there are natural disasters happening regularly which were unheard of 25 years back

      Whole hearted support for you to migrate from here. You Muslims came here almost empty handed but friendly/cunning manner & married Sinhala/ Tamil women because of humanity & kindness of our kings & people.

      Now you Muslims go against the very people who welcomed & extend kindness & humanity to you & shamelessly seeking international sympathy after creating racial issues..

      You discriminate your women; who represent our sisters who, your early settlers married, with inhuman doctrines of a religion & engage in adultery in the name of religion.

      So now correctly, not only your wealth but also you whole Muslim people are becoming peanuts for us.
      So if you migrate leave our sisters who you’ve forced to be Muslim & do it empty handed.

    Terrible grammar. Appalling comments from Mr. Lateef.
    Without raving and ranting, get your own house in order first. Get your regime to arrest Kiyas immediately!
    The writer has very conveniently tried to brush aside the actions of that petty thug Kiyas by saying “Kiyas confused everyone by attacking the Singhalese”

    Confused, what confused? Do you honestly expect the majority of this country to fold their arms up and bow their heads when a minority starts attacking them? Hell, I don’t think so!

    By the way, the writer seems to have read the Mahawamsa well and seems to be using the contents of that stupid book to achieve his own petty ends and hence the equalization that we are all “Pariahs and foreigners”
    I don’t know about the writer but I am a Singhalese whose roots are as old as the very earth itself here . Better luck to the writer on the Singhalese are pariahs and Veddhas theory!
    You maybe only trained or indoctrinated to not look beyond a certain book but we are, so don’t think we belong to that braindead lot as well.

    By the way, I thoroughly read your article a few times and never in your writings that you have acknowledged that someone needs both hands to clap. You and people like you are the real Racists not us, not the law abiding peaceful, respectable regular people. You need racism for your very survival. Racism is everywhere for you people from the day you are born from organs in your body, to marriage, to business, to death, to education, to the perfume you wear and even to the very food that nourishes your bodies!

    Go look in the mirror…..you will clearly see both the problem and answer!

      Senaratne,

      Very well said. But I am alarmed at what I saw in your post. I never knew that Muslims have gotten violent now. Who is this fella called Kiyas? Sounds like another Minority fella asking to have his eyes gouged. Arrest him and let the prisoners take care of him.

      If the Muslims have now taken it to a new level of getting violent, then I think all bets are off. It’s time to reciprocate in kind.

    The Arabs have their Brains in their asses and never speak for other Muslims in other parts.You can bet your last cent that not a single Singalese will be sent away from any Arab country just because Muslims in Sri Lanka are killed or mistreated!!!!Please go on with your killing spree my singala brotheren.

    Suhair Lebbe.
