“With A Little Political Backing We Can End The Rise Of Muslims”, Gnanasara Who Wishes To Emulate Prabhakaran Declares

Controversial Buddhist Monk Galagoda Atte Gnanasara of the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) has declared that if he and his group had a ‘little’ political backing then they can end the rise of the Muslims in the country.

Speaking at an event recently in Korea where he addressed the Sri Lankans living there, Gnanasara also revealed how he systematically devised a successful plan to virtually destroy and abandon a Muslim town in Kuliyapitiya. “Sometimes, I feel like taking a T-56 and do what Prabhakaran did, but I can’t do it because I am in robes,” he said.

“We have more than 6000 to 7000 of our women who have converted to Islam after marrying Muslims. When we marry a Tamil or someone else we don’t get them to change their names, but when a Muslim fellow marries one of our women, then she is forced to become a Fathima and all the babies become Mohammeds. We must stop this,” he said.

Gnanasara said that this was a dangerous trend. “Our politicians are only greedy for power, they are ready to sacrifice for the party but not ready to do anything for the country. If these politicians only gave us a little backing we can end the rise of the Muslims,” he said.

Speaking further he said that there was a Muslim town which was located amongst Sinhalese villages. “But we systematically devised a plan over a year and today it is infested only with flies, no one else goes there,” a laughing Gnanasara said.

Elaborating further he said that the Muslim town was well off because the people in the town had money and they tried to take ownership of a playground in the area. “From the Sinhala village, a few old ladies had gone to sell their vegetable crop to a Muslim Mudalali in the town, but the Muslim Mudalali refused to buy saying that because they were not given the playground, the mosque had ordered them not to buy anything from the Sinhalese. These old women threw the vegetables onto the floor and then they and the others got together and started their offensive,” he said.

According to Gnanasara, today the Muslim town is absolutely abandoned. “There are now about 6 to 7 new shops owned by Sinhalese and the Muslim town is only infested with flies,” a very pleased Gnanasara said.

    In refutation of a common myth that states Islam was spread by the sword and that people were forced to become Muslims, it must be said that it is a common misconception with some non-Muslims that Islam would not have millions of adherents all over the world, if it had not been spread by the use of force.

    The following points will make it clear, that far from being spread by the sword, it was the inherent force of truth, reason and logic that was responsible for the rapid spread of Islam.

    Islam has always given respect and freedom of religion to all faiths. Freedom of religion is ordained in the Quran itself:

    “There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong.” (Quran 2:256)

    The noted historian De Lacy O’Leary wrote:[1] “History makes it clear however, that the legend of fanatical Muslims sweeping through the world and forcing Islam at the point of the sword upon conquered races is one of the most fantastically absurd myths that historians have ever repeated.”

    The famous historian, Thomas Carlyle, in his book Heroes and Hero worship, refers to this misconception about the spread of Islam: “The sword indeed, but where will you get your sword? Every new opinion, at its starting is precisely in a minority of one; in one man’s head alone. There it dwells as yet. One man alone of the whole world believes it, there is one man against all men. That he takes a sword and tries to propagate with that will do little for him. You must get your sword! On the whole, a thing will propagate itself as it can.”

    If Islam was spread by the sword, it was the sword of intellect and convincing arguments. It is this sword that conquers the hearts and minds of people. The Quran says in this connection:

    “Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good instruction, and argue with them in a way that is best.” (Quran 16:125)

    The facts speak for themselves

    · Indonesia is the country that has the largest number of Muslims in the world, and the majority of people in Malaysia are Muslims. But, no Muslim army ever went to Indonesia or Malaysia. It is an established historical fact that Indonesia entered Islam not due to war, but because of its moral message. Despite the disappearance of Islamic government from many regions once ruled by it, their original inhabitants have remained Muslims. Moreover, they carried the message of truth, inviting others to it as well, and in so doing endured harm, affliction and oppression. The same can be said for those in the regions of Syria and Jordan, Egypt, Iraq, North Africa, Asia, the Balkans and in Spain. This shows that the effect of Islam on the population was one of moral conviction, in contrast to occupation by western colonialists, finally compelled to leave lands whose peoples held only memories of affliction, sorrow, subjugation and oppression.

    · Muslims ruled Spain (Andalusia) for about 800 years. During this period the Christians and Jews enjoyed freedom to practice their respective religions, and this is a documented historical fact.

    · Christian and Jewish minorities have survived in the Muslim lands of the Middle East for centuries. Countries such as Egypt, Morocco, Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan all have significant Christian and Jewish populations.

    · Muslims ruled India for about a thousand years, and therefore had the power to force each and every non-Muslim of India to convert to Islam, but they did not, and thus more than 80% of the Indian population remains non-Muslim.

    · Similarly, Islam spread rapidly on the East Coast of Africa. And likewise no Muslim army was ever dispatched to the East Coast of Africa.

    · An article in Reader’s Digest ‘Almanac’, yearbook 1986, gives the statistics of the increase of the percentage of the major religions of the world in half a century from 1934 to 1984. This article also appeared in The Plain Truth magazine. At the top was Islam, which increased by 235%, while Christianity had increased by 47%. During this fifty-year period, there was no “Islamic conquest” yet Islam spread at an extraordinary rate.

    · Today the fastest growing religion in America and Europe is Islam. The Muslims in these lands are a minority. The only sword they have in their possession is the sword of truth. It is this sword that is converting thousands to Islam.

    · Islamic law protects the privileged status of minorities, and that is why non-Muslim places of worship have flourished all over the Islamic world. Islamic law also allows non-Muslim minorities to set up their own courts, which implement family laws drawn up by the minorities themselves. The life and property of all citizens in an Islamic state are considered sacred whether they are Muslims or not.

    Conclusion
    It is clear, therefore, that Islam did not spread by the sword. The “sword of Islam” did not convert all the non-Muslim minorities in Muslim countries. In India, where Muslims ruled for 800 years, they are still a minority. In the U.S.A., Islam is the fastest growing religion and has over six million followers.

    In his book The World’s Religions, Huston Smith discusses how the prophet Muhammad granted freedom of religion to the Jews and Christians under Muslim rule:

    The Prophet had a document drawn up in which he stipulated that Jews and Christians “shall be protected from all insults and harm; they shall have an equal right with our own people to our assistance and good offices,” and further, “they shall practice their religion as freely as the Muslims.”[2]

    Smith points out that Muslims regard that document as the first charter of freedom of conscience in human history and the authoritative model for those of every subsequent Muslim state.

      The truth is more complicated. See this verse:

      “Verily, those who disbelieve (in the religion of Islam, the Qur’an and Prophet Muhammad ()) from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikun will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures.” (98. Surah Al-Baiyyinah)

      As I have said, ISIS are following the true Islam. A polytheist or atheist is considered less than human. When ISIS captures a Christian area, Christians in Syria can remain where they are by paying the jizya tax, convert to Islam, or they can leave (and forfeit all their property and all other wealth). Christians and Jews are considered “people of the book.” But Shia and Yazidis have no chance. Especially the Yazidis; ISIS simply slaughters the men and takes the women into slavery.

      This is what Quran says about Jews:

      “96. And verily, you will find them (the Jews) the greediest of mankind for life and (even greedier) than those who – ascribe partners to Allah (and do not believe in Resurrection” (Surah Al Baqarah)

      About jihad:

      “216. Jihad (holy fighting in Allah’s Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know.” (Al-Baqra)

      It is a joke to claim that Islam did not conquer by the sword. Here is what happened to the Jews of Banu Qurayza. They were executed by Muhammed himself. From Wikipedia:

      “According to Stillman, Muhammad chose Sa’d so as not to pronounce the judgment himself, after the precedents he had set with the Banu Qaynuqa and the Banu Nadir: “Sa`d took the hint and condemned the adult males to death and the hapless women and children to slavery.” Furthermore, Stillman infers from Abu Lubaba’s gesture that Muhammad had decided the fate of the Qurayza even before their surrender.[29]

      Ibn Ishaq describes the killing of the Banu Qurayza men as follows:

      “Then they surrendered, and the apostle (Muhammed) confined them in Medina in the quarter of d. al-Harith, a woman of B. al-Najjar. Then the apostle went out to the market of Medina (which is still its market today) and dug trenches in it. Then he sent for them and struck off their heads in those trenches as they were brought out to him in batches. Among them was the enemy of Allah Huyayy b. Akhtab and Ka`b b. Asad their chief. There were 600 or 700 in all, though some put the figure as high as 800 or 900. As they were being taken out in batches to the apostle they asked Ka`b what he thought would be done with them. He replied, “Will you never understand? Don’t you see that the summoner never stops and those who are taken away do not return? By Allah it is death!”

      Marwan claims that “and that is why non-Muslim places of worship have flourished all over the Islamic world.” According to Rajiv Varma:

      “Islamic literary sources provide far more extensive evidence of temple destruction by the Muslim invaders of India in medieval times. They also cover a large area, from Sinkiang and Transoxiana in the North to Tamil Nadu in the South, and from Siestan province of present day Iran in the West to Assam in the East. This vast area, which was long the cradle of Hindu culture, came to be littered with the ruins of temples and monasteries, belonging to all schools of Santana Dharma – Baudhha, Jaina, Shaiva, Sakta, Vaishnava, and the rest. Archeological explorations and excavations in modern times have proved unmistakably that most of the mosques, mazars, ziarats and dargahs which were built in this area, stood on the sites of and were made from the materials of deliberately demolished Hindu monuments.”

      In other words, when the Muslims invaded India, they destroyed thousands of Hindu and other temples, and built mosques in their place.

        Lester, you need to be Muslim, to argue for Islam and Muslims. If you cannot understand the difference then you are going to blindly pick up (readily available from the internet – loads of misleading and wrongly interpreted Quranic statements without context of how, when or why those statements were made) that is most supportive of your warped views. Islam bashing is your hobby and we all know that. What more can we expect from you.

          Marwan:

          The verses I have quoted are from the following website: http://www.noblequran.com/translation/. According to the website, The translators are Dr. Muhammad Taqi-ud-Din Al-Hilali, Ph.D. & Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan. The verses I have given can be easily verified.

          Anyway, it is a historical fact that Muhammed executed (beheaded) several hundred Jews at Banu Qurayza. It is difficult to misinterpret that. It proves my earlier point, that Muhammed was more of a warrior than a Prophet.

          Regarding Quran, as Cholan has said, it was mostly copied from Bible & Torah. If you have two books, and the second book came after the first book, but contains 99% of the first book, there is only one obvious conclusion.

      @ Marwan

      Don’t think readers of CT living in stone age like muz-slims.

      In Entire Indian Sub continent Islam was thrusted by the swords of Moghuls.

      In Balkans people accepted Islam not themselves it was for tax relieve ,facilities offered by Ottamans rulers so poor farmers swallow this bait.

      Yes 800 years Arabs ruled Spain but churches were so powerful so moraccaon Slave rule was not successful.

      In Malaysia & Indonesia iSLAM entered because in those days ..people followed rulers because they were not educated but still these muslims are unable to give up Hindu traditions in their daily life.Indonesians When Sultans die still burn their bodies with pomp and pagent Check the names of Sultans wives in Malaysia all sounds hindu names.Do you know every Indonesian girl learn Ramayana dance it is a tradition there.

      islam is a religion created to change the Arabs who lived like savages not for civilized people ,Islam copied Torah and Bible nothing new .

      Question is why you are converting Sinhala girls who marry a Muslim ? Why she can’t remain as a Buddhist ?

      Cheers

      Islam is a religion of peace ..happiness..compassion my foot.

      Yesterday German police arrested teenagers who entered their begging for asylum after trained by Isis ..this is the peace Islam preach even a chid know majority of these Syrian refugees are isis members.

      Will guardian of Islam Saudi accept christian Eritrian refugees and treat them as human ? never ever
      Look how Europe treat these fake muslim refugees which is better your Islam or Christinity?
      They never ask what is your ethnicity or religion German Chemcellor Angella Mekal is going to pay a very high price for her generosity 1.1 million 100% muslims a time bomb ticking.

      Do you know what will happen if European youth do the same like your favorite isis even your Allah can’t save Muslims in the west..good religion..good parents can only make good people

        It is strange Gnanasara Thera desires the support of politicians. He did get the support of the Rajapaksas and he virtually destroyed a vibrant town to that now occupied by flies and he’s proud of it. Gnanasara then spread wild rumours of Sinhalese girls being raped by Muslims etc which embroiled the people and he got what he wanted. Thankfully we now have a decent government but that hasn’t stopped Gnanasara spreading made up stories of Sinhalese vegetable sellers and Muslim Mudalalis. Beats me why the Buddhist hierarchy does not disrobe this hooligan who is shaming Buddhism that is held in much awe around the world.

      In trying to refute the perception (perhaps misconceived) that Islam was spread by the sword, you have indulged in certain misrepresentation of facts which need correction. Every religion teaches good and so is the case with Islam but it is many adherents of these religions, who tend to misinterpret the teachings and try to impose it on others, either overtly or covertly, indulging in conversions and proselytism. This is especially so in the case of many Christians and Muslims. With the increased impact of science, technology and rational thinking in most Christian countries, the importance given to Christian & religious beliefs has taken a back seat in these countries. However, in the case of Islam extremism, fanaticism, bigotry, jihadism continues to flourish unabated in many Muslim countries, spurred on by Mullahs and bigoted politicians.
      It is incorrect to say that Muslims ruled India for a thousand years. The Muslim invaders established kingdoms in parts of India and imposed Islam by the sword in most of these. Other’s places and objects of worship were destroyed, like the Hindu and Buddhist ones and women were forcibly married and converted in these places. It is the valiance of certain Hindu and Sikh monarchs and warriors that kept this scourge in check and where they could not enforce conversion with might, they resorted to subterfuge. Yet India, which is non-Islamic, has the second largest Muslim population in the world of all sects and they enjoy a much greater degree of tolerance than minorities in Islamic countries.
      In Indonesia and Malaysia, though Islam was introduced more peacefully by through Arab traders, it is more for economic reasons. These countries benefitted from the Arab traders, who began conversions largely via marriage and enticement. However, the Islam practiced by most people here is not considered proper by other Muslims and extremists want to marginalize other faiths.
      The greatest degree of intolerance towards other religions is practiced in the Islamic countries of the Middle East. Even in Europe and other Western countries most Muslim immigrants try to impose their own laws, in contravention of local laws and even become violent.
      This is not to undermine the essential teachings of Islam but most practitioners have warped these teachings and have adopted an attitude of bigotry, fanaticism and extremism. This was a feature in the case of Christianity as well, in the middle ages but thankfully the sting has died down with the progress of rationalism and scientific thinking in these countries.
      It must be stated that the Sri Lankan Muslims have by-and-large coexisted peacefully with other communities and contributing positively to economy and society. Yet, perceptions matter and incidents like enticing employees to convert to Islam through monetary benefits or teaching young children even of the age of 3 or 4 years that praying or greeting with hands folded together in “Ayubowan” of “Vanakkam” style is satanic (shaitan) should be kept in check as this tends to alienate young minds. It is okay for example to say to children that Muslims do not pray or greet in that manner but not denounce other modes.
      More could be stated but come what may, the “Gnanasaras” in every community should be condemned and marginalized.

        “However, in the case of Islam extremism, fanaticism, bigotry, jihadism continues to flourish unabated in many Muslim countries, spurred on by Mullahs and bigoted politicians.”

        Because Muslims are not allowed to question the Quran. In Buddhism/Hinduism, you are encouraged to undergo a process of self-introspection. Ideally, this process allows one to deal with new situations in a rational and calm manner. This process is missing in Islam. One is asked to simply obey everything written in the Quran without questioning. There is NO pathway for finding creative solutions. I believe this is why Islamic countries regress, as opposed to progress. This belief that all answers can be found in the Quran extends to other areas as well. And when real problems arise, but people have not been taught how to find rational solutions, they become violent and turn to extremism/fanatacism/bigotry/jihadism.

        “”It must be stated that the Sri Lankan Muslims have by-and-large coexisted peacefully with other communities and contributing positively to economy and society.””

        yet when colombo was hit 90% of the looted material was in Muslim homes.
        If you think Maggie thatcher was conned by tamils yes but the economy did not die because of tamils because they looted the FDI Thai Gem businesses and several Indian/Asian companies etc – that is what hit the nation and continues to this day.

        50% of all Lanka business is held by Muslims- a clenched fisted policy.not asking you pluck and kill but be sensible- the world is round and spins around its axis. To use the muslim as bait or them using every opportunity (of the country) to promote their block vote islam- is
        democracy gone crazy and rotten economy. Socially you have high and low class too the revolutions starts there and ends with morals. then when all reason is exhausted Buddhism comes in Silenco!!!
        The Abhayamudrā “gesture of fearlessness” is a mudrā (gesture) that is the gesture of reassurance and safety, which dispels fear and accords divine protection and bliss in many Indian religions. The right hand is held upright, and the palm is facing outwards. This is one of the earliest mudrās found depicted on a number of Hindu, Buddhist, and Jain images.
        Muslims don’t like it because they do not understand sculpture which speaks for self than 2dimension words(islam) and bomb them. the world is 3dimension to touch- each retina sees 2 (combined 60 degrees) and the mind converts to 3 dimension.

        Samsara Samsara.!!

    Hi Guys,

    How many of you are aware that Tamil Hindu Politician Neelan Thiruchelvam`s wife is a Muslim ?

    Not a single Mullah raised this matter and asked Neelan to convert ..

    So Thoppies play game with poor people it seems.

    Next time if a Muslim like Sinhala let her parent tell him to convert to Buddhism..

    Same happened last year in Earvur ..when Muslim guy wanted to marry a Hindu girl her parents told him to convert to Hindu first …he did this and married his sweet heart living happily with a Hindu name.

    Cheers

        Mike it is all because lack of proper information being passed to the folks that live up their lives in rural corners of the country. See knowing the majority folks/vote eligibles have been rural folks- journalists have abused them for such a long time. Those ITN Hudson run program brainwashed the nation. They should be brought before the courts.

        Media men that abuse the nation during the last 10 years or even longer, while the country had been fighting the war – should be made accountable for those folks have become that stupid and vulnerable to perverse agendas of greedy political wills.

        For example, even today, I hear Media men have been raising question former senior men ” Sir why have only Rajakashes been targeted by law ? Why not others ? Why dont they have any others than going after the you and your family sir ? “

        The very same journalists fail to raise the question about the very issues being investigated and the gravity of the issues and how they affected on the econimic crises being faced by the nation/country today ?

        No whatsoever acceptable debate/dialogue/Discussions are yet called for – in order to exchange thoughts about investigating allegations and how they could have happened if former senior men continue uttering not to have gone wrong in whatsoever they decided to go for.

        And even yesterday I noticed BASIL Rajapakshe and elements are upto go for breaking SLFP – the very same man had been arrested lately and in the same day was taken to prison hospital. If the man with a history of high profile abuses to have been done deliberately to be neglected by the authorities have paved the ways them to continue their abuses in others forms by today.

    Although I disagree with any violence that Gnanasara seems to suggest, I must say Muslims in this country do not want to integrate with the mainstream. Muslims are clanish and only take care of the believers of Islam.They place their religion above the country. There are extremists like Izeth Hussain who keep writing about Islam while the entire country is suffering economically. People like Hussain encourages division and are no different from Gnanasara.If Muslims are prepared to put country first then there will be no division.

      You have made a good point that there’s no difference between the writers like Izeth Husaain

      When the country faces multitude of problems caused by the last Regime which needed solving these two always brings out the worst .
      I don’t bother to read the dribbles of Izeth’s,
      We need progressive ideas to rid the menace of wholesale Looting of State by the Ministers old and new and the other Professionals and the born Thieves.

      People need to shape this country for better with their Ideas and advices.

    What a “Little Political Backing” you are asking? When you had the “Full Backing” from the Rajapasas, you could not end anything, but ultimately ended up in Courts. Hope with that “Little Political Backing” you are now asking will send you to the Prison for life. That is what that “little Political Backing” we too are asking from this Government. When that happens, we can say: Sabbe Satta Bavanthu Sukuththa.

    Muslims are pretending to be innocent victims here.But they jollywell know what they are upto.They actively propagate themselves by indiscriminately multiplying and they know when they out number us the match is over.See what is happeneing to minorities of Muslim majority countries.Their lives have become living hells.There are decent muslims atound but they all have one common theme.They all belive muslims are a special breed of humans and everyone else is crap.They dont care about the crap infedels and if you and me are suffering that is not their problem.They are taught to be like that from the very beginning and this brain washing mechanism has permanetly blunted their logical thinking.They spend tbeir whole life doing things to please an imaginery God and blindly follow an ancient book full of out dated rituals and practises like lashing,stoning and decapitating to name few.
    In modern free thinking democratic world they have become a real head ache.Unless they learn to co exist with others without tbreatening to others existence there will be no cure for this type of anti.muslim sentiments.The solution to the problem lies with them.Do not actively multiply and indeirectly threaten the right to existence of others.Do not build masjids in every junction and corner and do not undermine other cultures.Mix with others and treat everyone like human beings and do not consider muslims are as special beings.Every one has the same right to exist and the faith is a highly personal thing.Simply because others dont belive in your almighty they dont become infedels and they dont need to rot in hell either.Get you basics right and learn to coexist in this world respecting humanity.You will see the problems you face diminishing gradually and the all the amswers to the questions you face can br found in yourselves and not anywhere else as these problems are created by not any one but YOU.

      Prasad,

      You are not too far wrong. However what you say is applicable to believers of all faiths. Every believer thinks that theirs is the true religion and theirs is the true god. This is the problem with religions. Religions have been a curse on humanity rather than a blessing if you go by the strife caused by religious intolerance.

      In an ideal world we can request the Sri Lankan Muslim or the Tamil to forge and identify with the rest of the community that they share the country with. However the Sri Lankan world is not ideal. It is full of fault lines. The majority act like the country belongs to them and that all minorities need to treat them as such. It is even ingrained in the constitution that one religion has more rights than others. Magnanimity to accept all humans as equals must flow from the top to the bottom rather than from the bottom towards up.

      Your mind has got brain washed by anti social elements. Your view on Muslims are far from the truth. We get along well with all communities and are usually the oppressed, or at the but-end due to our status as minorities. But you say if we are in the majority we behave different. Well, that may be in isolated instances amongst deprived people, where money, education and living standards are very much at low ebb, and that is not unique to Muslim enclaves only. Why don’t you read and understand what the religion itself teaches than what Muslims say, or behave and do to stay competitive. If you go to the roots of religion, it is usually, all the same. Do god for yourselves, and unto others, as you would have them do unto you. There is so much good to go around. Don’t get carried away by this hatred filled monk spitting fire on Muslims and repeat it. You have the gift of language, go read and learn from proper and correct sources – What is Islam, its objectives to all of humanity irrespective of which religion or background you come from, what role we play in this maze of existence, why are we here, where are we going from here. Truth will dawn that we are all the same.

        I appreciate Muslim followers are mostly peaceful people.However you haven’t responded to the issues I have raised.You are actively polulating the places you live and if you belive that is your God given right we have the same right to take actions to protect our cultures.You guys do it at others expense.What about building mosques in every corner of the country .If you behave in a threatening way it doesn’t matter whether your religion is peaceful or not.The fact is it is threatening our long standing culture and our existence.We have no issue like that with any one else.
        If Mullins coexist with others without directly or indirectly threatening others BBS will have nothing to fight for.

    ” “Sometimes, I feel like taking a T-56 and do what Prabhakaran did, but I can’t do it because I am in robes,” he said.”

    There are few things, it is a crime to even think of it. To sauy he loves to be a terrorist like Prabaharan but unable to be one only because he is in robes is a disrespect to the very robes he wears as a camouflage.

    People like him should be disrobed by the Sanga and looks like the Sanga is also silently tacitly approving his acts. When such a shameful behavior by a person in robes is being turned a blind eye certainly is interpreted as approval. Maha Sanga should have really come down hard on him and gone public to safe guard the respect of their religious body. Nothing of that happened.

    I am the Maha Sanga have committed a grave sin to Lord Buddha and they should dissolve the bogus religious organization called Maha Sanga. Damn shame.

      Why doesn’t someone preach to them a good sermon about ‘ahimsa’. People are afraid to talk to him, that’s the problem. Get him on Satana debate or 360 and expose him to other views. Let people question him to see the falsity of his views.

      I really appreciate his not taking a T-56. That’s self control! Now he needs a little more self control to learn to ‘prevent the rise of Muslims’. Why not simply make boost the chances of the Sinhalese by giving them tution classes and religous education? What about English classes for the Sinhalese masses, I am sure that would faciliate the ‘rise of the Sinhalese’ to compete with this ‘rise of the Muslims’. How about interest free loans?

    Viswajith my new mate, made a quip that I am on to something about my comment that Gnanissae=ra is in Batalanada ‘s back pocket.

    You got to give it to Batalanada Ranil for his political cunning.

    A loser for 20 years who couldn’t win even the village chook raffle is now the almighty PM, who is going to write a spanking new Federal Constitution and bury his dear Uncle’s one, perhaps in the same grave where he is RIP.

    And give his mate Vellala Sambandan, the Federal Tamil Eelaam even Chelvanayagams and Pnnambalams couldn’t get from Batalalanada’s ancestors.

    On the one hand Batalanada is using Malwatta Boss to pull the wool over the eyes of Sinhala Buddhist Elite who are not UNP, about the impending disaster to the 2500 year old Sinhala nation.

    On the other hand, Norwegian trained BBS Gnanassara is used to turn the Muslims against the rural Sinhala Buddhist inhabitant population .

    This is purely to neutralize the Sinhala Buddhist vote in the East in particular and also the rest of the country.

    Now the Vellala Tamils and , Muslims together can muster easy 2/3 majority in the East.

    With the 100 % in the North ,the Referendum to divide the country and make it Federal will be a cake walk for Batalanada Ranil.

    Because silly Srilanka only asks for just a majority for even an important referendum like changing the Constitution.

    Unlike in serious countries, where they ask for an absolute majority in each province or state.

      Mate, Sumanasekera,

      “A loser for 20 years who couldn’t win even the village chook raffle is now the almighty PM, who is going to write a spanking new Federal Constitution and bury his dear Uncle’s one, perhaps in the same grave where he is RIP.”

      He lost because everything was fixed in those days; even elections. Anyway, isnt YOUR Batalanda Ranil, a vast sight better than the teetering wreck who was the Prime Minister during those evit times we have just seen out?

      I have seen some Galahs’ in my time but none so dense as you.

    SinhalaPropaganda – I am not sure whether you are a Tamil or a Singhalese person but your writing is very knowledgeable and very sensible. Everyone knew that why LTTE expelled Muslims from Jaffna town – most of them were given walky-talky by the army. TNA begged Muslims to form a party in the East and what they did. How RB was stealing land in Tamil area with the help of Army. All these things should be written on stone for future history reference. Yes Muslims helped Army to get rid of LTTE but it is nothing to be proud of. Tamils knew for a long time about the hat they use.

    Consider this example, a Muslim man aproaches his neighbour, a Budhist girl. He tells the girl: have you heard about sex? It’s a bliss feeling and orgasms are even better. The Budhist girl is really excited about the new sex thing. She says, let’s have sex. Now can you blame the Muslim guy of raping the Budhist girl ???

    Muslims talk about eternal bliss and happiness. If other people buy that idea and they want to part of it, please don’t blame the Muslims. Blame your own kind for guillability.

    Surely those who believe, and those who are Jewish, and the Nazarenes, and the Sabiens; any one of them who believes in God and the Last Day, and does good work, they will have their reward with their Lord, with no fear over them, nor will they grieve.

    ———————–
    Lester ,with due respect , may I kindly know what faith you profess ? So it becomes more reasonable to get in to a fair and logical discussion.
    even sumanasekera with all his annoyance , at-least , does not shy away from displaying his bigotry based on his beliefs.

    So are you of the Christian faith? Hindu? Buddhist ?

    From what to what ,

    There is bad PR issue here and it has been politicized using bigotry ,that is always the issue.

    If There is injustice done by Muslims on orders of the Mosque trustee , it is 100% wrong .

    but I note in this entire set of comments people blowing their trumpets stating how civilized they are .

    Civilized to such an extend they have made Prabakaran the once most hated and feared terrorist a Hero and are hero worshiping him .

    Tomorrow if the situation turns against Christian Evangelists for propagating and converting (which is done in grand scale and well organised- ) Bin-laden will be made a Hero.

    When there is an issue or any sort ,if the people are civilized for real , they will use the law of the country , this shows how blood thirsty are the very people who brags about how civilized they are .

    The government needs to send in to this Town a fact finding team compromising of good men and women from both communities with the protection of the security and an unbiased media like MTV and telecast the entire situation and the party who have broken the law should be charged accordingly.

    let the Country’s law take the matter into its hands and do the needful.

    You have all got the entire topic mixed up.

    This is not a threat @ any Minority, This is an open and fearless LTTE styled warning , threat of grave punishment to the sinhalese youth if they do not take up Arms .

    This is a Call for Buddhist jihad against Muslims
    ——————————————————–
    Everyone who can think are well aware of this , its the right time for the call , Youths are frustrated due to IMF holding back the 1.5 billion Fund Facility desperately needed to correct its balance of payments issues, The JO is having a hay day blocking Ravi’s Vat , and the government is printing paper money at a rate and we the willing sheep are slaughtered mercilessly daily by the Political dramas and are paying through our noses to exist ,while another dangerous group has craftily seized the right moment for the next bloodiest insurrection.

    Unfortunately the government is too busy trying to please the masses , the IMF , the Tamils Human rights , super powers , compromise with china for the huge commitments of financial investment and borrowing in the past , and other debts of the arms purchase, they are ignoring a very dangerous bloodbath in the making and this time it is not the tamils , the war is against the Muslims indiscriminately , not wahabi ,or tabligi , its anyone who is a Muslim . On the other hand The Muslims have taken for granted the change of government and are over confident and are more interested in promoting The Abayas to such an extend it has become a fad, and are clueless what is boiling up, They have not learnt from Aluthgama, , without learning and finding solutions, addressing more important issues of the community and make peace and build trust , they are going the opposite direction.

    Let us hope it will not start anytime soon. It is only the the muslim scholars from all sects who will have to take the responsibility for the consequences for the arrogance and agitating the opponents ,thus giving them a justification for the planned insurrection against the fabricated threat and rise of Muslims .

    Want to make one thing clear here , not a single Mosque in Sri Lanka offers any loans under its roof to anyone ,not to Mudalalees nor to peasants . Not even to poor Muslims starving in their homes discreetly, if they are doing so you wont have Muslim beggars standing at the gates of The mosques for few rupees , (Begging is strictly prohibited in islam)

    Loans are given under the brand of islamic financing by various Banking institutions ,but still it is the same monetary system , with a twist of the term and method it is dished out , and it is only available to those who already have a guaranteed form of business turnover, just like any other bank ,It is not even available to anyone with properties without proof of business turnover and it is controlled by central bank and administered by some scholars.

    Reverend with due respect , at least when you criticize your opponents stick to the truth ,which is an important precept in Buddhism .

    According to the latest information received , the grounds are owned by The Mosque ,a request was made by the Sinhalese Buddhists of the area to hold a Musical show , The trustees of the mosque had agreed at the beginning and at the last moment, that is on the day of the show due to “some higher ups” pressure, they have declined .

    So what is the true story? who is going to figure out the truth ?

    What a drama , The government must look into the story and broadcast the truth to the Public.

    The Muslim Scholars are more worried if they should endorse the afghanistan Taliban face veil or not on the women.

    They have no time to address more serious issues, they prefer to let issues lead to bloodshed, when there is a racial violence lot of people on both sides gain financially and politically .

    All the Muslim Countries are an example, none really care about saving lives , all want to make a quick buck on blood money.

    Government, unfortunately is engaged in struggling to maintain its coalition government marriage, the biggest mistake is not the coalition government or taking at random MPS of the ex regime , it is the compromise of appointing them as Ministers, while denying good men of The UNP like Buddhika Pathirana a young dynamic non racist politician a position.

    As for the above video and the remarks made are biased and based on hear say ,very twisted it seems , and while the the whole incident is about a play ground , completely disconnected ,baseless accusations without facts of intermarriages and religious conversions are told to fume open hatred and quite a number of readers were intoxicated with the hatred and were adding fuel.

    What some readers do not understand when penning their comments is , it is about a community ,it is about human beings, it is about a large number of people who have nothing to do with most of the accusations made mostly on speculations by haters based on prejudice , petty jealousy , and by a irresponsible coldhearted lot.

    Please remember if anyone human being is to be hurt or harmed by your irresponsible comments which may indirectly be the cause, karma will haunt you and your generations to come as long as this world exists .

    This Country has already spilt enough innocent blood of human beings ,while shamelessly crying crocodile tears for animal slaughtered for food , the earth of Sri Lanka is still soaking wet with a lot of innocent human beings blood , people are still crying day and night of the loss of their loved ones , some do not even know todate whatever happened to them, you are a daring people of blood thirst, you have not still learned what it is to take a human life on the pretext of safeguarding nation, religion and race.

    If you care for your children of today and the ones to be born ,be compassionate ,forgiving , fill your hearts with tolerance of others beliefs, always avoid confrontations with mutual discussion like civilised human beings and promote peace for the sake to save lives .

    Do not practice hypocrisy in the name of religion , no matter what religion you practice , humanity comes first , and all must be treated as one family ,if not your religion has no place in a civilised world , no matter which religion it may be.

    If poverty prevails in high numbers in a certain religious community ,The problem and reason are not people of other religious communities ,nor the religions teachings , it is the richer members , Politicians , preachers , scholars and administrators of the religious community concerned who should be held responsible , they have neglected their duty towards their community, and by destroying innocent people from other religious communities by promoting bigotry will never resolve the issue, in fact by promoting good will among all, there is a greater opportunity for all communities to economically flourish and the country to move away from all past mistakes and prosper .

    There is only one simple thing that is crystal clear from the Video , The quest to destroy the Muslim economically is still on , if you listen to the speech lines in between one will understand it clearly .

    Sadly Muslims who though trade to the people of this land ,any good native will happily admit it.

    But this trend has been brought upon the Muslim Community by themselves , again due to petty jealousy to get even with each other , today it is upon the entire community .

    I honestly believe there is not much of a future for the Community in Sri Lanka , of course thanks to The Past regimes and special thanks to politician’s lap dogs like the Muslim guy of Weerawanse .

    The Muslims with M0ney will survive for some time until proper mechanisms are created to finish them too.

    If Muslims don’t stop betraying each other like their cousins use to until sadly they faced the holocaust which thought them how unity is strength and today they rule the world , no matter what different thought they may hold in religion, the brother must thrive ,the community must thrive, but what I am afraid is , God forbid if The Muslims is to face the same situation they will not survive , Majority of Muslims are the least educated and most of them live below poverty and their sub divided religious dogmas and ideology prohibits progressive life and the rich dislike the idea of empowering and raising the livelihoods of this majority segment who are not educated and poor and it is highly supported by religious hierarchies by enforcing religious laws that block all progress and taking them back to stone age and the shadow Politicians protect such actions because as much as the religious hierarchies need to be parasites on these poor souls ,the shadow politicians need their votes .

    The only two Muslim communities that rally take care of their people are the Shia School ,Boraahs and The Ahmadiyya Muslims , and believe me , the sunni hierarchies are very upset and angry about this , as it exposes their injustice to the poor Muslim Community .

    Dear Rev. please do not go after the poor small time Mudlaiyas who beg and borrow to make a honest living and like the famous Aluthgama pavement hacker who had struggled and built his life ,his whole struggle was destroyed in minutes .

    Go after the smugglers, drug peddlers and tax avoiders , they are the ones who are destroying the country ,if you are sincere go and pressure the government to end these. it is not heroism to oppress the poor and helpless .

    If you personally and sincerely do a survey, you will be shocked to find out how many poor Muslims are struggling , some even their own rich families do not offer a plate of rice for them , these are the muslims mainly you are attacking,

      I was only responding to Marwan. You have “hijacked” a little comments space, yourself and there are others apart from Marwan and myself. You referring to only some of my comments as “His-Story” and not history and requiring references only of me, reveals your disposition. If I were to cite references for every point I made, I would have to “hijack” a much bigger space and time. An honest and unbiased research on your part, which is not as difficult these days, would throw some light on the validity of my comments. You can either show me the points relating to which you need references or do your own research and challenge me, so that we can “hijack” some more space for discussion. Otherwise, you can sit in your comfort corner, continuing eating your peanuts and live with your own story.
