Zaharan’s Attitudes, Preaching Turned Towards Violent Extremism After Digana Attacks: Ex-DIG Nalaka Silva

Testifying before the Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) probing Easter attacks, ex-DIG Nalaka Silva said the Terrorist Investigation Division (TID) monitoring terrorist Zaharan’s activities daily noticed, his preaching and attitudes took a sharp turn towards violent extremism following Digana attacks against Muslims in 2018 by extremist Sinhala Buddhist mobs.

Nalaka De Silva

The former TID Deputy Chief, accused of plotting to assassinate Sirisena, told the PSC that the TID surveillance revealed, following Digana attacks led by extremist Amith Weerasinghe last year, Zaharan’s social media presence turned prolific, all updates were based on violent extremism and his preaching revealed that he began justifying and sympathizing with ISIS terrorism.

“The TID operated directly under the purview of the IGP. Every video Zaharan uploaded was shared with the IGP and was briefed on many occasions regarding Zaharan’s turn towards violent extremism,” Nalaka added.

Nalaka Silva says he had on several occasions even recommended the proscription of the NTJ, recognizing the danger it posed.

He says the investigation and other strategic moves planned to counter Zaharan’s moves, were hindered due to his abrupt arrest in 2018. An open warrant had been obtained against Zaharan in July 2018, followed by a blue warrant. Nalaka Silva had stated his eventual plan was to obtain an INTERPOL warrant for Zaharan’s arrest in case he fled the country.

Nalaka Silva was arrested in October 2018, over alleged assassination plot against several VIPs.

The TID had been monitoring activities of Sri Lanka Thawheed Jamath organisation since 2013/2014, which in the years to come, broke up in to break away groups.

“It was a group established in Sri Lanka upon gaining inspiration from Tamil Nadu, but they were not violent extremists at their inception,” he told the PSC. He notes even the breakaway NTJ, although were radical in their preachings, were not subscribing to violent extremism at its beginning.

Among other concerns he had raised with the PSC included Facebook’s lack of response to correspondence by the TID on the subject of blocking accounts and access of the site to individuals engaged in spreading violent extremism .

    Zaharan is created of Mahinda and Goata to blame Muslim community. and attack them as and when they need. All these thugs are Mahinda supporters and Goata’ men.. behind all Muslim violence, they act and direct all gangs.

      Malala De Silva.

      Yes.

      When there is no hope, some take extreme measures.

      Para-Sinhala Para “Buddhists” creates Tamil Separarism, Separatist war and the LTTE freedom fighters and Terrorists, because the Para Sinhala State cooperated with the Para Sinhala rioters and did not apply the law and order. This radicalized the Tamils and we’re willing to die with no promises of the virgins.
      LTTE specialized in attacking Sinhala Buddhist Minks and the Temple of the Tooth containing a canine tooth.

      So, per Digana Para- Sinhala Buddhist riots against the Muslims, that lead, just like the LTTE, for the youth to get radicalized, as there was no hope of law and order.

      So, take the Law into your own hands, and besides if you die get 72 virgins, whether true or not. In any case, everybody dies anyway. Why not die for s cause and for Justice?

      Para Sinhala Para-“Buddhism” is the cause and curse of the Lsnd if Native Veddah Aethho.

        Amarasiri,

        “Para-Sinhala Para “Buddhists” creates Tamil Separatism,”

        Father of Demala separatism was racist Chelvanayakam who is an illegal immigrant to Sinhale. Demalu planned the separatist war against Native Sinhalayo during British period and smuggled arms from India. Probably British would have supported Demalu to smuggle arms because they wanted to see Native Sinhalayo and Kallathoni Demalu fight after they leave. The way British behaved during LTTE terrorist campaign confirmed that.

        There are no Para-Sinhala in Sinhale. Except Sinhalayo all others are ‘Para’ and their roots can be traced to other countries.

          Well, well so now we know why this PSC drama was set up,
          1. to distract with staged photos and hide the truth that it was CIA owned and Saudi funded and operated IS that were behind the Easter crime– in order to set up a US military base in Sri Lanka under the guise of protecting Lanka and Christians from ISIS.
          2. This also enables US puppet Bondscam Ranil (who constantly talks about ISIS like it is his best friend), to come forth as the great (neo)liberal savior of the Muslim, Christian and Tamil minorities, when Bondscam Ranil should be impeached for treason and locked up with US citizen Gotabaya Rajapakse who also got lost of Saudi funds for the Avant Guard amoury scam

        Amarasiri,
        The conclusion of the research by Ranaweera, Lanka; Kaewsutthi, Supannee; Win Tun, Aung; Boonyarit, Hathaichanoke; Poolsuwan, Samerchai; Lertrit, Patcharee (2014). “Mitochondrial DNA history of Sri Lankan ethnic people: Their relations within the island and with the Indian subcontinental populations”. Journal of Human Genetics. 59(1): 28–36 is:
        “No definite association of the Sinhalese with any specific ethnic or linguistic groups of India was, however, detected in this study; thus, their exact immediate origin on the mainland remains yet to be confirmed.”

        You picked few data without reading the whole article. Typical Demala propaganda.

        During Mahinda’s regime, defense ministry funds were given to Muslim extremist groups and encouraged to attack Tamils. Similarly government turned a blind eye to atrocities committed by individuals like Bathurdeen and Hisbullah on Tamils. That policy continued during the tenure of this government also. So to say that preaching of Zahran started to turn to violent extremism only after Digana attack is to sweep the truth under. Mahinda has recently said that when he was president, their agents infiltrated these Muslim terror groups and they were controlled. Who these agents are, he has not disclosed. It is well known that Pakistani intelligence agency had been working with Muslim terror groups to promote hatred against Tamils.Therefore one could deduce that the said agents were Pakistanis who had been helping Mahinda. When all these are put together, it is clear that it was Mahinda and his brothers with Sirisena who had orchestrated this attack through their Pakistani agents. One month prior to this attack, there was a lengthy meeting between Mahinda and Sirisena where this plan was discussed and go ahead was given. This is the reason why Catholic churches were attacked and not Buddhist temples, because these ruthless creatures preferred Catholics dying in large numbers than Buddhists. Now Mahinda and his catchers like Malcolm Ranjith are shedding crocodile tears. Politicians in government and opposition who were well aware of the bombings, are trying to cover up the Muslim criminals. If a proper investigation is carried out truth will come to light about this dastardly crime.

      As a matter of fact, people learn by error.

      It’s human nature whether Sinhalese/Tamils/Muslims or any other.

      Your charge; Sinhalese never learn from mistakes is very unfair.

      To learn from mistakes one has to have made a mistake/mistakes.

      Related to ethnic issues, only once a serious mistake was done by Sinhalese; not by ordinary Sinhala people but the govt. led by JRJ in 83.

      It’s our beloved minorities, Tamils & Muslims on the instigation of outside forces or not may instigate Sinhala people @ grass-root level to attack them & voice to the world that Sinhalese Buddhists are extremists & win sympathy.

      Islamophobia in the world has a reason.

      Warning the danger of it isn’t mistake as it’s purposely done. ( by Amith Weerasinghe)

      & it doesn’t make AW or anybody an extremist.

      So the unfriendly Muslim forces started the attack @ Digana & easily passed the blame for Amith Weerasinghe; the truth.

      There’re no extremist Sinhala Buddhist organizations in Sri Lanka.

      Nalaka Silva seems to be uttering untruth for his (& probably of FM SF’s) survival & fix another prop for UNF government.

      “What’s the difference between Athureliya in yellow Robes ,who incites racism , murder and annihilation of minorities in the name of Lord Buddha and the ISIS murderer Zaharan??”

      Very good question.

      Para-Sinhala Para” Buddhists” and those who wear robes follow Mara, Devil, who opposed Buddha. They love death and destruction. It is not Buddhism. It is Mara-ism. Ask the Tamils about 56,58,77,81,83 riots.

      Para-Muslim Para” Wahhabis” and those who sport long beards follow Devil, Satan, Iblis , who opposed God They love death and destruction. It is not Islam. It is Wahhabism-Salafism and its clones Tauheed Jamats, Talibans etc.

      Hadith of Najd

      “O Allaah bestow your blessings on our Shaam. O Allaah bestow your blessings on our Yemen.” The people said, “O Messenger of Allaah, and our Najd.” I think the third time the Prophet, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam, said, “There (in Najd) will occur earthquakes, trials and tribulations, and from there appears the Horn of Satan.”

      Analysts,
      In the name of Buddha, Sinhalayo pardoned thousands of LTTE Demala terrorists who committed heinous crimes against Native Sinhalayo. Demala propagandists are trying their best to bury the atrocities committed by LTTE terrorists for three decades by blowing few isolated incidences out of proportion. The 1983 incident which was a reaction to a terrorist attack by Demalu was carried out by UNP thugs. Among them there were Muslims. After that incident, despite animalistic barbaric acts committed by Demala terrorists, Sinhalayo stayed calm without hurting Demala people. Sinhalayo have done their part for ‘Sanhidiyawa’ but Wellala Demala politicians who keep on talking about war crimes that did not happen have failed to do their part.

    I have following questions regarding his statement:
    1. Did he any reason to suspect that Zaharan was building an organization for a violent purpose?
    2. Did he keep copies of of reports he sent to the IGP every Monday?
    3. Did he ever discus the growing security threat with the IGP?
    4. What was his opinion?
    5. what may be the reason IGP failed to continue from where he stopped?
    These are important b’cos we need to know why his arrest caused a stoppage of what he was doing if he truly conveyed the existing danger to the IGP. If The IGP already had a clear understanding of what Nalaka had in mind, then a serious question arises as to why the IGP failed to connect the dots as soon as he came to know about the Indian tip. Is this b’cos:
    1. The whole Dpt of police was in disarray leading to breakdown in communication among different branches?
    2. IGP was also new & therefore didn’t have enough time to reorganize the system?
    3. IGP was not up to the task?
    4. The cabinet minister didn’t know what were the ongoing priorities were?
    5. Whole thing fell apart after MY 3 took over?
    These two sets of question lead me to conclude that Nalaka Silva’s story is somewhat exaggerated!

    This “Witness” – DIG Nalaka in testifying did mention that there were “Politicians” who were covering up “Saharan”, but refrained from mentioning the names, in the presence of the “Media”. The “Media” was then removed to facilitate the DIG to mention the names of those “Politicians”. Will we ever “KNOW” who those “POLITICIANS” were and are? Those “Politicians” could be our own “Representatives” voted to power and in that sense, don’t we have a RIGHT to know them? If now, they are known by name, would the Law Enforcement of the country “QUESTION” all of them to investigate their “CULPABILITY” in the “21st April Massacre” of innocent civilians? Someone asked: “Who created Saharans”. Here comes the ONE AND THE ONLY answer – THE POLITICIANS who twisted the arms of the Law Enforcement to be in power by hook or crook.

    It is the hate preaching which was started by MaRa which created this Zahran, Recently the President carried out orders from Mara , released Galagoda and used the monster to spew venom, painting a bad picture on the innocent muslim community who are against these radicals ,Gamaral a used his media and the defense power he had, also used all the racist tactics on the book ,the drama staged by the disgusting Rathana thera was carried out by Gamarala and co , even the gobs knew about it , if he wanted to stop he could have imposed curfew under the emergency law, the emergency law was only for the muslim community and not for the bloody racists , it was disgusting watch this slimy Gamaralas rule.
    Finally what happened , Gamarala didn’t want to break his neck by sucking his own d**k, he got Gnanasara and Rathana thero and they spilled it all over . This is what they are doing to our beautiful country.,
    If you want to save Srilanka ,the priority is to stop these mobs used by politicians and use the media to encourage democracy and not hate preaching in the country if not kasippu drinking hooligans will dominate and more Zahrans will be created.
    This nasty president is painting a bad picture on the Buddhist community for the whole world to see.BLOODY IDIOT.

    The state should investigate how many Musulims in the past years went to:

    Turkey (transit point to join with soldiers of Arab God.)

    Saudi Arabia

    Pakistan gate way to world`s drug capital Kabul ,Afghanistan.where Musulim terrorists are active.

    Also must investigate how many nationals of :

    Pakistan
    Bangladesh
    Syria
    Turkey
    Iraq
    Bedouin Saudi Arabia

    entered inside SL

    are these people left the country?
    what were they doing during their stay.?

    It is easy to track from Airport IT system

    Also must investigate how many Mususlims have got ID / Passport with Tamil / Sinhala name.
    and who helped them ,civil service chased out Tamils and filled with Musulims .

    Banks in Musulims area staffed by Musulims must be investigated thoroughly.

    Failing to do this will end up in a disaster.

            Tara and Muhandiram, you are both stupid Islamic infidels. It is well known that Pakistani intelligent agents were working with Muslims in the east to promote hatred against Tamils. Governments both past and present were making use of them to commit atrocities against Tamils. It has now come to light that Mahinda government paid money to these Muslim terror groups through defense ministry. Mahinda said that during his time they infiltrated these Muslim terror groups using their agents and knew what was going on and controlled them. As long as these Muslim terrorists hit Tamils, it was OK for all governments. People like Hisbullah and Bathurdeen are their lap dogs to do the dirty work of suppressing Tamils., and their active support to these terror groups is being brought to light. This April attack was planned by Rajapakse brothers and Sirisena, using Pakistani intelligence agents working with these terrorists, and they had instructed their agents not to attack Buddhist places of worship. original plan was to cause mayhem in eastern province where only Tamils and foreigners will be affected. This plan has gone terribly wrong. Just because you are angry with Mossad, you are working overtime in covering up the hand of Pakistani intelligence agency in this dastardly crime.

      Many were influenced by anti-Muslim violence. But I will not make that a blanket excuse for each extremist.
      I do not know why Zahran did what he did. He may have been driven by Satan.
      To some, the petrodollars of the Wahhabi establishment speak louder than the Prophet. So, do not rule out the lure of money.
      Those who encouraged Zahran could have had other things in mind, much more than Allah, the Prophet and the Quran. (You must know what havoc they wreaked in Iraq and Syria and now in North and West Africa.)

      Now, Wahhabis and Salafis, particularly the Arab violent culture and attire simply must be destroyed and uprooted from Sri lanka. It is not NATO – BS that runs Sri lanka.

      If Saharans are of your choice find a place to hide.

      Before your challenge..the fate of Rohingyas Musulims await you and your followers.Start to build boats. 0

      The said attacks were a result of mixing chemicals at Musulims restaurants to non Musulim customers.

      Now reports about Musulim doctors
      Perform once and for all lock for childbirth of non Musulims.

      What you expect others to do suck the fingers and watch.?

      Search operations exposed weapons and explosives at your mosques..arrests of Musulims doctors..bankers..civil servants,going up day by day.This is shocking .

      Are you going to say you all innocent ?

      Remember every Musulim village is surrounded by Tamils and Muslims villages and SL is not a land locked country. Any move will be crushed

      Of course you have the right to dream .

      Cheers

            Yes we all know that you fake Arab low caste Dravidian Thullkans from South India , deliberately sided with the Chingkalla racists and government and spoilt the Eezham dream , by spying for the government and Thullka homeguards in the east, using the arms provided by the Chingkalla government and armed forces , to raped , ethnically , cleansed and killed Thamizh in the east, so that you can steal this ancient Eezham Thamizh homeland and create a fake Arab Wahhabi/Salafist Caliphate on these stolen lands , where you arrived as refugees begging for asylum from the eastern Eezham Thamizh. Now have bred like rats and with the help of Chingkalla governments , armed forces and Gulf Arab funds want to steal the land from the people who took pity on you low lives and gave you refuge. Everything was going according to plan until you mistakenly bombed a Church full of Chingkalla Christians , instead of Thamizh Christians. Now no one wants you fake Arab low caste South Indian origin Thullukans. Eezham existed and the fight for it was justified as this was the ancient land of the island’s Thamizh . Thamizh were also fighting against state sponsored Chingkalla discrimination and marginalisation. They are indigenous population who were fighting for what was rightly theirs. They had a purpose , to liberate their people from Chingkalla racism and fake Arab Thulluka opportunist like you. However nothing that you fake Arab low caste South Indian Thullukans did justifies anything. You are not indigenous to the island but an immigrant converted Dravidian community from South India , claiming a fake origin and heritage , thinking this will benefit your immigrant community. You wanted to establish an alien culture, language, religion that is even foreign to you Thullukans , in the name of Islam and Arabism on land stolen from the indigenous Thamizh and then use that as a base to spread your evil stone age cult to the rest of the island.

              “They are indigenous population who were fighting for what was rightly theirs.”

              How can the descendants of slaves brought to Sinhale illegally by Portuguese, Dutch and British call themselves ‘Indigenous Population”?

              If Portuguese, Dutch and British did not import slaves from Malabar to work in their plantations, the present Demala population is about 3%. That 3% belong to descendants of Demalu who came with invaders and allowed to stay in this country by Sinhala Kings.

      Another stupid big mouth spewing garbage as usual. Have you ever been to eastern province where ancient Buddhist temples/monuments are getting attacked by Muslim maniacs.? That’s going on for at least for 30 years now.
      Where is the “justice” you babbling about ? You incels need to grow a few brain cells and look at what’s happening in the west at least. Do you remember the charlie hebdo incedent ? Drawing cartoons insulting prophet Muhammad ? And the attacks aftermath ? Are there racist Buddhists in France too ?

      When there is no justice. There will be thousands of Zaharans!!.

      Justice will be served to every Muslim terrorist who are preparing to commit future atrocities. Too bad zaharan couldn’t take you down with him.

    Whether it is in the Palestinian territories, or even in Myanmar, when there is oppression, discrimination, and violence against helpless civilians, it is only natural that there will be resistance, and the excuse to fight back by various means, and extremists like this criminal, will use that excuse to recruit, and organize attacks on helpless civilians. The minority always ends up having to face the wrath of the majority, and endure the anger, violence, and hatred. The majority must be cautious how they use their powers, because to turn the other way while the minority gets attacked, their places of worship desecrated and burnt, and their people killed, is to
    give criminals like this man, the opportunity to use the anger among his people, and convince even a handful, that they must hit back. Thankfully the majority of Muslims reject this un- Islamic campaign and the violence. We need leadership who can unite this country, and kill the poison that is spreading, or else we can never progress as a nation.

    What is said in the headline is not true.
    He has been on training since 2017 which has nothing to do with Digana.
    Now everybody says that they were aware of the NTJ and Zahran’s activities which is hilarious.
    This statement looks like politically motivated.

    It is time a new Act is enacted exclusive to protect all minorities against Violent mob attacks in future, until The whole parliament agrees to this, the public must take no notice to anything any politician tells you especially minority.
    1) in case of mob violence max water cannon ,Tear gas and baton and shield riot police must be used with Rubber bullets ,failing which live ammunition should be considered as last resort with support of the airforce choppers .
    Those who are guilty should be charged with not an atom of difference of Terororists.
    Including confiscating all assets , prison sentence not less than 20 years or 20 years of revoking of civic rights and if any cause loss of life should be sent to gallows .
    If you can not do this, then the mobs are handyman of all the 225 MPS to do their dirty job,
    Its a joke while innocent are charged and degraded with PTA even though with zero crime charges ,the murderers of the Killing mobs are tried under civil law and sent off free only to repeat it again.
    I can not believe how our Sri Lankans can be taken for ride for 70 years, with somuch literacy they still believe the lies of the politicians.
    If you dont charge the Mobs with terror act , it means you are party to it and want the mob to be available to do so whenever its required .
    May be until karma turns the goons against their own masters

      Knight of Justice: Sinhale is the only country that has minorities. So, they changed the name of the country. changed the flag. Now change the constitution. Why these minorities do not go to other countries and hang only to Sinhale. Even with that very dangerous – PTA, Zaharan could blow up. Rishad Bazthiuddin and Hisbulla and many Wahhabis are doing fine and kicking.

    It says, Muslims politicians either have not handed over the resignation letters or Maithripala sirisena haas not accepted because that would cause Parlaiment to dissolve.
    So, some how 15th amendment is active. Therefore all the three wheeler parties including JVP and TNA continue to ruin the Country and NATO and MCC have CAT-PAWs to ruin the country.

    Bulls1t!!! Since 7th century Muslim terrorist world has been plagued with millions of Zaharans. Don’t forget Mohomat was a warlord who did his fair share of terrorism.
    /
    Muslim politicians must be held responsible for Easter day Muslims killing more than 250 and Muslims injuring more than 500 innocent Sinhalese, Tamils, and foreigners.
    /
    It is pig Muslim politicians who are facilitating terrorism 1slam in Sri Lanka.
    /
    In 1492 King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella kicked Muslims out of Spain when Muslims became unbearable. So Sinhala-Buddhist Sri Lanka must do the same.

      Spain was ruled by Musulims for 800 years but they couldn’t convert a single Spanish because Spanish people were well educated not prepared to believe “earth is flat :con.

      Spain because of their idiotic immigration policy now face Musulim problem. In Spain if one member of a family get PR he can bring his parents and siblings even can start business.

      In Certain areas dogs arw being poisoned…these Morocan Musulims refused to accept local rules and regulations.

      Soon Europe will kick out all Musulims back to their toilet lands.

        There were Spanish Muslims and they were forced to convert to Christianity.
        Islam was a far more modern religion than European Christianity until after Renaissance.
        The Roman Catholic Church had the same vision of the universe as the Muslims and Jews at the time. You may perhaps heard the names Copernicus and Galileo.
        The Hindu ideas were even weirder and conflicting, and many were bound to mythology.

          Spain was a Catholic country when her defence was weak Moroccan invaded and ruled. For 800 years.

          There were never Spanish Muslims after all your Isulam came after Christiniry .

          First read the history yourself .

          ISULAM say world is flat you accept ? No contaminated diseases ? You accept .

          4th century uncivilized and savage Bedouin Arabs were taken for ride.by an unemployed
          Womanizer .

          Coly BUK is a carbon copy of Jewish TORAA.

          Recently I watch a video of this joker Zaharan said Kattankudy name came from Arabic KeKeKeKe

          Don’t parade your ignorance after reading your coly Buk here.

          This is 21st century you all still live in 4th century .
          .FYI Asians had excellent knowledge about universe for centuries..even today in Panchankam can predict exact date time of eclipse in a year.
          They calculate without any modern technology all in Hindu scripts .

    “Zaharan’s social media presence turned prolific, all updates were based on violent extremism and his preaching revealed that he began justifying and sympathizing with ISIS terrorism.”

    People underestimate the power of social media .ISIS used it to recruit thousands of fighters. There is also a fundraising component.Some videos can be emotional, such as those involving children. People will be inclined to donate to the “cause.” The Sri Lankan intelligence must wake up to this threat and monitor the social media accounts of suspicious individuals. Otherwise there will be dozens more ” Zaharans.”

    The question is:

    Why did not so called most patriotic Musulim people never informed police after all Kaayankudy is such a small dense place.

    This joker’s videos with violent messages,in Tamil was circulating circulating for years .

    Modayas employed Musulims to spy on Tamils..why these spies have not informed about these videos.to their boss? SUPPORTERS ?

    Modayas can’t understand Tamil.

Listening to military officers saying “sir” to stupid MPs in the committee is so cringe worthy. Donkeys in the parliament aren’t fit to tie shoes of our patriotic soldiers. Nalaka de Silva is another lying political hack. Looks like he’s hurt his neck while working so hard from the prison to safeguard the country. He ain’t fooling nobody.

    Who killed Kalu yesterday ?
    Is it a message ?
    Are we safe to travel overseas ? Or work overseas?
    Is ISIS really destroyed ? Or are they spread all over ?
    Is lone targets a new strategy ?
    Please avoid any kind of hate on Social media
    There is a widespread belief ISIS has lot of access to internet and what happens if they start targeting our innocents who are living overseas for irresponsible actions on social.media by a few ?
    Why unnecessarily risk the innocent?
    We must learn a lesson from what happened to Muslims in Christchurch .
