Thuggery in the Name of Islam in Sri Lanka
Posted on August 12th, 2012

The Taif style attack is still continuing in this era too in Sri Lanka against those who want to teach Islam and learn Islam.

Most Sri Lankan Muslims know what happened recently in Nuwara Eliya when a group of ‘Muslim’ thugs brutally assaulted daees of Islam in a Nuwara Eliya mosque. The mosques there are apparently reserved for a certain ‘Islamic movement’ by its violent and hateful followers. Yet with all the capability to take legal actions against those who attacked the daees, the All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama (ACJU) did nothing. 

As it was anticipated much, no stern actions were taken by ACJU which is led by a bios leadership. They have appointed some to look into it and the matter is still in the files, report and letters.

This time when another Islamic movement wanted to conduct its Kandy city Ijtima in Meera Makkam Masjid a very well planned arrangement was already made to disturb the Ijtima and disperse the gathering by ‘Muslim’ extremists. One distinguishing feature this time was that there was no man-handling as the attackers seemed to have learnt a bitter lesson from their experience in Nuwara Eliya. But everything besides that took place — they forcibly removed the microphone when the instruction was being given to disperse peacefully. It was done by a real mob similar to the one that attacked the Dambulla mosque. The different here was this was a Muslim mob instructed by a influential group in Kandy.

Will there be any use even if the matter is brought to the notice of the ACJU? Everybody knows the answer. The leadership of the ACJU is accountable to Allah on the Day of Judgment. Allah has given and chosen a leader who is responsible for the Muslim Ummah of Sri Lanka. He is not only for a group of people or movement.

Terrorism has so many faces. Sometime it appears in the form of extremism and sometimes in the form of thuggery. 

Sri Lankan Muslims need a common leadership. A leadership that is capable of handling all social issues including tolerance of various views and ideas and strategies of different Islamic movements. The common body could be the ACJU taking into consideration various facts. But if it continues to ignore the serious issues that threaten the very root of unity of the Umma then the question of whether to depend on it will arise. The ACJU has a role to play. It should not play games.

Sri Lanka is now passing though a very difficult time in its history. Things that we are now experiencing are unprecedented. Our masjid, business establishments and even our growth in population has been the target of some elements in the majority community. The Jews have apparently started to divide our umma in various forms in Sri Lanka. The Jews are firm on a ‘divide and rule’ policy and will not be happy until they see we are divided. 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran: “But the Jews will never be pleased with you, nor will the Christians be, until you follow their creed. Say: “Surely the guidance of Allah- that is the Guidance.” And if you were to follow their desires after what has come to you of the knowledge, you will not have besides Allah any ally, nor any helper.”

Will the ACJU awake at least now and realize the real ground situation?
“They Said our Lord, pour upon us patience and confirm our feet and give us victory over the disbelieving people” (Al Quran)

    So it is the majority community’s fault (and OF COURSE THE JEWS!!)?

    Racist!

    If true SL must INVITE Jews!!

    I begin to LOVE Jews now.

    Long live Israel. Long live the Jews. Long live the JEWISH PEACE in Syria, Iran, Palestine, etc.

    No true. You tell me how you can prove that ACJU has been selected by Allah to guide Muslims in Sri Lanka? Can you sure they are claiming such. they are the problem creators.

    Israel’s involvement in Sri Lanka is not the business of the Muslim minority. It must be decided by the state.

    Due to threatening growth of Islam in both India and Sri Lanka, it is natural that Israel and its security agencies take an interest in these two countries. All dealings Israel has these countries are done with the complete concurrence of their democratically elected leaders. People in these countries have wide support for Israel.

    Blaming everything on others is the bane of Islam.

    Jewish contribution to the world, (just a few)

    Kalr Landsteiner – discovered human blood groups
    Waldemar Haffkine – vaccination against cholera and plague
    Paul Erlich – chemotherapy and vaccine theory
    Jonas Salk and Albert Sabin – polio vaccine
    Casimir Funk – discovered vitamins and showed how deficiencies related to certain diseases

    Arab contribution to the world

    Violence, violence, violence and more violence

    Lorenzo, its true he is a racist, but don’t forget that he probably has more fingers than brain cells.

  7. Lorenzo Says:

    Mjaya,

    You forgot Einstein and Jesus.

    One good thing about Arabs is it is easy to pit them against each other.

    This Shiite-Sunni violence will wipe out at least 10 million of them when Iran and Saudi attack each other soon.

    I think SL needs Mossad very badly to TAME these.

  8. mjaya Says:

    Loranzo, I deliberately stuck to medical sciences because (unfortunately and regrettably) these discoveries should have prolonged their lives. Anyway, due to their inherent lack of brain power they can easily be pitted against each other…

    ..let the games begin!!!
