No Muslim majority country allows non-Muslim religious structures: Sri Lanka Muslims attempt to build a minaret infront of sacred Dalada Maligawa

 Muslims in Sri Lanka need to seriously introspect. They claim to wish to live in peaceful coexistence but then their institutes are attempting to insidiously enter all the sacred sites of Buddhist Sri Lanka and build their prayers of worship. The moment that happens that structure will become their religious right and take precedence over the religious structures that had had been in existence for centuries. Politicians are mum because it has become an easy endeavour to shut them up by giving them some luxuries to satisfy their lustful weaknesses. But it behoves the Muslim public to take a greater moral stand in this matter by coming forward to say that the mosques already in existence are enough and that it is wrong to incur on traditional Buddhist sites. Are these attempts to build Muslim structures in sacred Buddhist heartlands to create racial tensions and then cry foul when Buddhists react? This has been a ploy used in the recent past.

Most in Sri Lanka are of the view that the Islamic terrorism that prevails globally with all Muslims generally being projected as ‘terrorists’ by the Western media & certain politics is wrong mainly because it is the West that has created these jihadists to advance their own agendas via the Muslim nations that function as West’s satellite states/agents.

These West-friendly Muslim nations supply the manpower and indoctrination while the arms training and brainwashing is provided by the US/UK & NATO – thus Al Qaeda, ISIS and all other Islamic groups that the West proudly ban and claim to go after using R2P are all essentially created by the West. It was using these groups and unleashing them to do their terror that Kosovo was created, Yugoslavia was cut into pieces, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan and now Syria are being occupied. There is a plan to all these military occupations.

While simultaneously going after the jihadists the West plays a double game by demanding religious freedoms which is another insidious plan for them to roll out their Christian missionaries via NGOs and other Rights Groups. Riding on this it is sad that in non-Muslim majority countries that Muslims who claim to wish to live in peaceful coexistence use these Western ‘rights’ jargon to create their mono-Islamic enclaves and thereafter demand their rights as we can see the East also demanding a separate Muslim-only enclave in such a small island nation like Sri Lanka. So when taking these demands, the events happening before our eyes, the new dress codes which are only self-segregating Muslims from others we can only wonder what is the real plan and where do we draw the line.

While we know that the west is going after Muslims, what we cannot understand is why Muslims are attempting to insidiously creep into sacred Buddhist areas and therafter claim these areas as their traditional rights. How morally defensible is this?

The example of Saudi Arabia is important for it is the citadel of Islam and where Mecca is located.

Excerpts from the US State Department Report on Saudi Arabia – http://www.state.gov/documents/organization/171744.pdf. Saudi Arabia’s population is 27.1million while there are 8.5 million foreign workers of which over 70,000 are Buddhists

  • There is no legal recognition or protection of religious freedom, and the government allowed only private practice of non-Muslim religions
  • The public practice of any religion other than Islam is prohibited”
  • Non-Muslims are also strictly banned from the Holy City, Mecca. (Muslims are attempting to enter Sri Lanka’s sacred cities)
  • It was not permissible to bring non-Muslim religious symbols and books into the Saudi kingdom
  • The Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice (CPVPV) and security forces of the Ministry of Interior (MOI) conducted some raids on private non-Muslim religious gatherings and sometimes confiscated the personal religious materials of non-Muslims”
  • The government officially does not permit non-Muslim clergy to enter the country to conduct religious services
  • The government requires noncitizen legal residents to carry an identity card containing a religious designation for “Muslim” or “non-Muslim.”
  • Furthermore, judges may discount the testimony of non-practicing Muslims or individuals who do not adhere to the official interpretation of Islam and disregard the testimony of a non-Muslim in favor of the testimony of a Muslim.
  • Even Shia Muslims are discriminated – The government refused to approve construction or registration of Shiite community centers, so Shia were forced to build such facilities in private homes. government continued to exclude Shiite perspectives from the state’s extensive religious media and broadcast programming. The government sporadically imposed bans on the importation and sale of Shiite books and audiovisual products. In higher education the government discriminated against Shia in the selection process for students, professors, and administrators at public universities.
  • Journalists and activists who wrote critically about the religious leadership or who questioned theological dogma risked detention, travel bans, and government shutdowns of their publications
  • On March 19, 2010, four CPVPV officers and one uniformed police officer raided an Indian Christian prayer service being held in a private residence. The CPVPV took photographs and video in addition to confiscating Bibles and religious instruments. Police arrested the pastor and two worshippers
  • In 2012 Premanath Pereralage Thungasiri, a Sri Lankan Buddhist employed in Saudi Arabia, had been arrested for worshiping the Buddha in his employer’s home

Let us take the example of Maldives. It was JR Jayawardena who permitted Maldivians to live, work and study in Sri Lanka when Maldives claimed its islands were going to be submerged. Nothing has happened to the islands and capital city Male has got bigger with sea-reclamations. Inspite of all the kindness shown to Maldivians in Sri Lanka there is no reciprocity for Sinhala Buddhists

The population of Maldives is 393,595. There are more than 100,000 foreign workers including Sri Lankans.

  • The law prohibits citizens’ practice of any religion other than Sunni Islam, and stipulates that non-Muslims cannot become citizens
  • Propagation of any religion other than Islam is a criminal offense.
  • The constitution requires public office holders such as the president, ministers, judges, and members of the National Assembly to be Muslims and followers of the Sunni school of Islam
  • The constitution prohibits utterances contrary to tenets of Islam or the government’s religious policies.
  • Civil law is officially subordinate to Islamic law.
  • The law prohibits public statements contrary to Islam, and violators face penalties ranging from two to five years in prison or house arrest.
  • Schools are required to inculcate obedience to Islam” and instill love for Islam.”  (many say that the Maldivian women in Sri Lanka are often seen drinking and smoking)
  • The government maintains and funds most mosques.
  • The law states both the government and the people must protect religious unity (Islam only)
  • Propagation of any religion other than Islam is a criminal offense.
  • Foreign scholars may not criticize domestic policies and laws in their sermons (recall Hakeem referring to ‘yellow-robed terrorism’)
  • Non-Muslim foreign residents may practice their religion only in private and may not encourage local citizens to participate
  • The law prohibits importation of any items deemed contrary to Islam, including alcohol, pork products, or religious statues for worship (same sensitivities are not applicable for Buddhists who don’t eat beef)
  • By law, a Maldivian woman cannot marry a non-Muslim foreigner unless he converts to Islam first (we don’t know how many Maldivians are marrying both Sri Lankan Muslims & non-Muslims)
  • The government interprets the conversion by a Muslim to another religion as a violation of Islamic law, which could result in punishment, including loss of the convert’s citizenship

http://www.state.gov/documents/organization/238712.pdf

From the example of just 2 Muslim majority countries depicted readers can see the extent to which other religions are subjugated by law while in non-Muslim majority nations Muslim demands equal status and thereafter attempt to take over heritage sites.

It would be nice if the Muslims realize this mistake and rectify it.

    My hometown is Kandy and I would say it is upto the Kandy Municipal Council and the residents of Kandy to resolve any outstanding issue. There are many Muslims living in Kandy town too so let us resolve these minor issues peacefully. A million times more critical for Sri Lanka is the TNA demanding that Sri Lanka hand over 28% of its land area, 66% of its coastline and 66% of its ocean in the form of the North and East of Sri Lanka as a separate state to the TNA separatist terrorists. This would affect the Sinhala Buddhists in a very adverse if not terminal way. So let us demand from the government that no further power sharing whatsoever take place with the provincial councils than at present. Also Sinhala people should be made to relocate to the North in much larger numbers and to the East too and live there. This is the only way to bring about peace and development in the country.

  2. Ananda-USA Says:

    The Dalada Maligawa is Sri Lanka’s first or second most revered Buddhist place of worship. There is really no reason to allow a Muslim minaret to invade that space and thereafter to be subjected to the mullah’s calls to prayer via a loudspeaker that is sure to follow. Muslims in Sri Lanka are already taking ovet towns in the Hill Country to be exclusively Muslim and denying access to non-Muslims. This is the thin end of the wedge. Enough is Enough!

    Furthermore, the Saudi’s deny setting foot in Saudi Arabia not only to the Kaaba in Mecca, but to ENTIRE CITY OF MECCA to non-Muslims. If found in that city they will be STONED to death!

    When US soldiers entered Saudi Arabia to defend that country from Sadaam Hussein, they were denigrated as infidels even though they were rescuing them. This is the attitude of these ungrateful intolerant Muslims when they are on top. Never let that happen in Sri Lanka. We are just TOO TOLERANT to people who do not deserve or reciprocate that tolerance.

    JUST SAY NO! NOT IN OUR HOLY OF HOLIES!

    ” Are these attempts to build Muslim structures in sacred Buddhist heartlands to create racial tensions and then cry foul when Buddhists react? This has been a ploy used in the recent past. ”

    Exactly this is the ploy. Once a muslim leader was asked by a journalist in Belgium, why they keep demanding more rights and the muslim’s answer was when we ask we get so we ask for more!

    SL truly needs patriotic Sinhela National leaders who are genuinely patriotic and fearless in upholding Sinhela national sovereignty throughout the entire island as a fundamental human right of the Sinhela nation of people ONLY within the island country of SL. All settler communities too will be INCLUSIVE Sinhela national citizens and their foreign language, culture and religion ONLY their private affairs without any threat to the host nation. If foreign national aspirations are required it’s time to return to their lands of indigenous national origins for their heart’s content. It’s time for duties not only rights!

  4. Ananda-USA Says:

    Aura,

    You said it is time for DUTIES, NOT ONLY RIGHTS!

    That is the CRUX of the issues facing Sri Lanka. In my writing I have often emphasised that DUTY of citizens to love, protect, defend and Foster their Motherland, not only to demand and receive the RIGHT of every citizen to consume and enjoy the benefits of citizenship.

    RIGHTS and DUTIES are the TWO SIDES of the SAME COIN, the ONE cannot be DIVORCED from the OTHER!

    You won’t find a better place than Sri Lanka since Sinhalese are divided thanks to catholic-run UNPatriotic party.
    While they are trying to make Sri Lanka a catholic country with the blessing of catholics, catholic tigers of tamil
    drealam and catholic west, mussies baby making machines working overtime and multiply and multiply. All votes
    of course within a matter of years. Then more Sinhalese deshapaluwan falling over to lick their backsides for
    the mussie votes. Those Sinhalese traitor deshapaluwan don’t understand it is short term. As soon as the mussies
    got enough numbers, they put one of their own and kick the Sinhalese out. But it is Sinhala modayas in the catholic-run UNPatriotic party. The last thing they have in their mind is Sinhhalese, Sri Lanka and Buddhism. We have to thank catholic-run UNPatriotic party for the destroying Sri Lanka, Sinhalese race
    and Buddhism since they divide the Sinhalese and make minorities king makers.

    This reminds me the speech Putin made in the Russian parliament.

    Valdimir Putin on Muslims at THE DUMA.
    No wonder he was selected by Forbes as the most powerful person in the world!

    This is one time our elected leaders should pay attention to the advice of Vladimir Putin.
    I would suggest that not only our leaders but every citizen of USA should pay attention to this advice.

    How scary is that?
    It is a sad day when a Communist makes more sense than our LEADERS but here it is!

    Vladimir Putin’s speech – SHORTEST SPEECH EVER.

    On August 04, 2013, Vladimir Putin, the Russian President, addressed the Duma, the
    Russian Parliament. He gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia:

    In Russia, live like Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, it should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws.

    If they prefer Sharia Law, and live the life of Muslims then we advise them to go to those places where that’s the state law.

    Russia does not need Muslim minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell ‘discrimination.’ We will not tolerate disrespect of our Russian culture.

    We better learn from the suicides of America, England, France and Holland, if we are to survive as a nation.

    The Muslims are taking over those countries and they will not take over Russia. The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of Sharia Law and Muslims.

    When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the Russian national interest first, observing that the Muslim Minorities are Not Russians.

    The politicians in the Duma gave Putin a five minute standing ovation.

  7. Fran Diaz Says:

    Sri Lanka authorites should perhaps put a moratorium on the building of religious edifices throughout the entire island for a period of at least 50 yrs. This should be part of the Law of the land.

    Don’t we have enough of the religious edifices in the country already ?

    GL: Prez-PM combination poses danger

    by Shamindra Ferdinando

    Former External Affairs Minister Prof. G. L. Peiris on Monday (June 6) alleged that the Sirisena-Wickremesinghe government’s policies were meant to appease western powers, the LTTE rump as well as Diaspora groups still promoting separatist sentiments.

    Prof. Peiris said the government was pursuing a course of action severely detrimental to national interest. The former External Affairs Minister was addressing a gathering at Sambuddhathwa Jayanthi Mandiraya.

    Among those present were a group of Buddhist monks, former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa and National Freedom Front (NFF) leader Wimal Weerawansa, MP.

    The government wanted the masses to forget Sri Lanka’s triumph over the LTTE in May 2009, he said. The former minister alleged that the unprecedented decision to call off the annual victory day parade scheduled for third week of May was in line with the government’s appalling policy. It would be the responsibility as well as the duty of patriotic organizations to make masses aware of the growing challenges faced by post-war Sri Lanka, Prof. Peiris said.

    Commenting on the ongoing investigations into the alleged disappearance of media personality Prageeth Ekneligoda on the eve of January 26, 2010 presidential polls, Prof. Peiris faulted the police for arresting nine members of the Directorate of Military Intelligence (DMI) under the provisions of the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA). The former minister underscored the need to examine the arrest of DMI personnel in connection with the Ekneligoda case against the backdrop of growing international challenges. Prof. Peiris asserted that it shouldn’t be considered an isolated case.

    Prof. Peiris warned of dire consequences in case the government accommodated members of various Diaspora groups in electoral lists hence making the way for them to exercise their franchise at national level elections. The move to give voting rights to members of the Diaspora was taking place amidst proposed constitutional changes, Prof. Peiris said, while emphasizing the need for constitutional safeguards to thwart the government taking decisions inimical to the country.

    The former External Affairs Minister also expressed concern over a recent decision to allow those who had sought political asylum overseas to return to the country without restrictions. The previous government prohibited their return on security grounds.

    Citing the recently released State Department report, Prof. Peiris said that in spite of losing its conventional military power, the separatist movement continued to pose a severe threat to Sri Lanka.

    The establishment of the Office of Missing Persons (OMP), too, would be inimical to Sri Lanka, Prof. Peiris said, accusing the government of causing serious difficulties to those who had served the motherland risking their lives. Prof. Peiris said the move was being made in the run up to the forthcoming Geneva sessions where an oral statement would be made during the last week of June.

    Prof. Peiris explained the threat posed on military commanders due to the Sirisena-Wickremesinghe co sponsoring a Geneva Resolution adopted on Oct 1, 2015. The former External Affairs Minister said that no provision could be as inimical as the recommendation that personnel could be dealt with administrative measures even if not found guilty by a court of law.

    During the previous government, Sri Lanka always opposed US moves in Geneva though the present administration accepted the US resolution meant to haul Sri Lanka up before a hybrid court comprising foreign judges et al. Prof. Peiris recalled the support extended by China, Russia, Pakistan and African states to the Rajapaksa administration during the previous government’s efforts to defend the country at the Geneva-based United Nations Human Rights Council.

    Prof. Peiris said that it would be pertinent to mention that international action against Sri Lanka had been decided on the basis of unsubstantiated allegations made by persons whose identities would remain classified for a period of 20 years since the release of UNSG Ban ki moon’s Panel of Experts’ (PoE) report on March 31, 2011.

    Prof. Peiris also strongly condemned moves to introduce new laws to try those officers and men who had been accused of various alleged atrocities during the conflict.

    Accusing the government of acting maliciously towards the military and the police, Prof. Peiris rapped the government for not taking action against Tamil National Alliance (TNA) leader R. Sampanthan and Eastern Province Chief Minister Nazeer Ahamed in spite of them acting in a manner disparaging of the military.

    Prof. Peiris also criticized the appointment of Rear Admiral Travis Sinniah as the Eastern Commander after being on US embassy staff. Alleging that the government was bending backwards to appease the US, former External Affairs Minister expressed concern over the government obtaining UK funding amounting to 6 mn pounds for projects to reform the military.

    Commenting on proposed constitutional reforms and the work undertaken by the Lal Wijenayake Committee, Prof. Peiris alleged that the government was making an effort to use parliamentary committees to endorse various documents prepared by outsiders, including foreigners. The Prof said that he had received briefings from members of the Joint Opposition regarding attempts to introduce various proposals.

    The Prof. condemned attempts to introduce laws to suppress the media during elections. Their strategy was to ensure that the masses would receive an opinion favourable to those now in power, he said.

    Warlord Abdulaziz raided many places in Najd to feed his family. On the night of January 15, 1902, 26 years old warlord Abdulaziz led 40 men climbed over the walls of the city of Riyadh on tilted palm trees and took the city of Riyadh. The Rashidi governor of the city of Riyadh, Ajlan, was killed in front of his own fortress – Masmak fort. Beginning with the conquest city of Riyadh in 1902, Warlord Abdulaziz consolidated his control over the Najd in 1922, and then conquered the Hijaz in 1925. The Wahhabis and UK supported warlord Abdulaziz and legitimized warlord Abdulaziz and his fight against the Ottoman Empire. Having conquered almost all of central Arabia, UK supported warlord Abdulaziz united his dominions into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in 1932 and changed his name as King Saud bin Abdulaziz. Since then the House of Saud always supports UK and its allies including USA. Warlord Abdulaziz married more than twenty women and fathered over sixty eight children including all of the subsequent kings of Saudi Arabia.Today more than 7,000 princes in the House of Saud, the result of multiple wives and lots of progeny.
    In 1863 the Illuminati Ashkenazi Khazar Rothschilds used one of their agents in USA, John D. Rockefeller to form an oil business called Standard Oil which eventually took over all of its competition in USA. Oil was discovered in Saudi Arabia in 1938 by US geologists working for Standard Oil. Standard Oil obtained a 50 year concession granted by Abdulaziz for an immediate payment of 30,000 gold sovereigns, veritably one of the greatest bargains in history. When the extent of breathtakingly large oil reserves became evident in Saudi Arabia, Exxon, Texaco Mobil and others joined in to form the mighty Aramco consortium.
    In exchange for security of the House of Saud dynasty by USA, the Saudi Arabia’s oil wealth and revenues have been handed over for exploitation and benefit of the Zionists and their Wall Street Corporations. The House of Saud regime controls “the largest family business” in the world without any popular mandate or accountability.
    When Warlord Abdulaziz took control of the Holy Places in Arabia from the Ottoman Empire with British support, he destroyed 15 centuries of Islamic heritage, including the desecration of the tombs of the wives and companions of the Holy Prophet, in the iconoclastic imposition of Wahhabism. The iconoclastic Wahhabi House of Saud gradually destroyed several holy shrines, including historical places of Islam from the Prophet’s house in Mecca and companion Ayoob Ansari’s house in Medina and turned them into apartment buildings and hotels. They also turned the site of the Prophet’s wives’ houses into a parking lot. Art, Music, dancing, laughing and weeping (including at funerals) have been forbidden by the Wahhabis. For a Wahhabi listening to music or dancing is haram but detonating explosive and killing innocent human beings is permissible.
    To enforce Wahhabism morals enforcers known as mutawwiin have been integral to the Wahhabi movement since its inception. Mutawwiin serve as missionaries, as enforcers of public morals, and as “public ministers of the religion” who preach in the Friday mosque. In addition to enforcing male attendance at public prayer, the mutawwiin also have been responsible for supervising the closing of shops at prayer time, for looking out for infractions of public morality such as playing music, dancing, smoking, drinking alcohol, men having hair that is too long or women who are not fully covered and dressing immodestly.
    The Wahhabi-backed warlord Abdulaziz took full control of the Hijaz, Mecca and Medina, in 1924 and established the modern state of Saudi Arabia, with Wahhabism as its official religion. Since then the House of Saud has promoted Wahhabism as normative Islam throughout the Islamic world. The House of Saud was consolidated on massive oil wealth and has spent huge sums of money building Wahhabi mosques, publishing Wahhabi literature and funding Wahhabi organizations world-wide. Today, with Wahhabi control of the Holy Places intact, virtually every aspect and corner of modern Islam has been penetrated by Wahhabi influence through the agency of the House of Saud.
    Through the control of the Hajj – the beating heart of Islam – and through their vigorous publication and propaganda means, almost all the Muslims are infected with Wahhabism to some extent.
    In Saudi Arabia there is no Church, Synagogue, Buddhist nor Hindu Temple is allowed. Wahhabism (pseudo Salafism) is NOT a religion of tolerance. Wahhabism provides the fundamental base for Jihadism which causes unending strife and misery. It is not Iran that should be bombed. In Iran there are still Jews living there and praying in their Synagogues. Muammar al-Gaddafi respected Christian and Jewish religions and their Churches, Synagogues in Libya but American, English, French, Saudi and Qatari financed terrorists destroyed Churches, Synagogues recently. Buddhist Temples including Bamiyan Buddha statues have survived in Islamic countries for centuries, but they could not survive under the Wahhabism.
    Washington and London are protecting Wahhabi extremists. In Syria Christians and their Churches were safe before the Westerners began sending their Wahhabi fanatics to kill innocent Syrian civilians.
    In Bosnia and Kosovo, under the guise of “reconstruction aid”, Saudi Arabia, Kuwaiti, and other Wahhabi organizations have demolished and removed major Islamic monuments (survived attacks by Serbian and Croatian militias) which were created by Muslims with an Islamic culture and tradition stretching back to 14th century long before Muhammad Ibn Abd al-Wahhab made his 1744 alliance with the warlord Muhammad Ibn Saud who founded the Saudi dynasty – House of Saud.
    In post- Muammar al-Gaddafi Libya,Wahhabi Jihadists bulldozed several Libyan Sufi mosques (including the Tripoli’s Al-Shaab Al-Dahman mosque) and Sufi graves (including the tombs of Libyan Sufi scholars Abdullah al-Sha’ab, Abdel Salam al-Asmar and of soldiers who fought Spanish colonialists). Wahhabi Jihadists also burned down several historic Sufi libraries in Libya recently.
    Since the start of the Arab Spring uprising by Wahhabi Jihadists, many Sufi sites have been attacked in Egypt, Mali and Libya by armed Wahhabi Jihadists.
    Because control of the world’s oil reserves also meant control of the world economy, Middle East was a vital prize for any power interested in world influence or domination. Because of the stupendous source of strategic power of Middle East oil and the immense wealth from this unparalleled material prize UK and France reached a secret agreement in 1916 known as Asia Minor and divided the Ottoman Empire in the Middle East with UK cleverly keeping oil producing countries and even creating an artificial country like Kuwait. The 1945 signed memo between USA and UK says “US petroleum policy towards UK is predicated on a mutual recognition of a very extensive joint interest and upon control, at least for the moment, of the great bulk of the free petroleum resources of the world”. After the decline of UK and France, USA stepped in as the dominant neo-colonial power in the Middle East and elsewhere. Zionist policy is to keep the sources of oil in the Middle East under Zionist control. Zionist energy corporations have flourished with profits beyond the dreams of avarice with the Middle East their leading cash cow.
    The Sunnis- Shiites divide is too deep rooted and plays out daily in most Islamic countries. Shiites form the underclass in most Sunni ruled countries, but after 1979 have felt inspired and aided by Iran, have become empowered in Lebanon and elsewhere. The Sunnis-Shiites conflict which can be seen in daily blood bath in Iraq and in the Muslim world throughout its history cannot be stopped by “Fatwas”.
    Wahhabism is the only social structure in Saudi Arabia. There are no political parties, unions, or social organizations in Saudi Arabia. Wahhabi Saudi Arabia can not stay at peace with the Shia Islamic Republic of Iran.
    Wahhabism is a desert cruelty used as a Muslim-Arab ideology to keep the House of Saud in power. The king of Saudi Arabia, Abdullah Aziz bin Saud, is 88 years old and the throne passes not from father to son but from brother to brother. Next in line to the throne Crown Prince Salman is already 77. While Saudi Arabia crumbles, massive oil revenues, which have long been used to buy public support, are being squeezed by sharply increased domestic demand and the Wahhabi Islamic establishment that supported the House of Saud is increasingly fractious and is losing credibility. High unemployment, corrupt bureaucracy, crippled economy, weak education system, and millions of frustrated youth are now battering Wahhabi Saudi Arabia.
    Pakistan President Mohammad Zia-ul-Haq was a pariah till 1979 for having ousted Prime Minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and hanged him. But suddenly Mohammad Zia-ul-Haq became the darling of the Western countries when he offered space, facilities and soul for the Jihad in Afghanistan. The great Jihad in Afghanistan was a big opportunity for Wahhabis. Taliban was created with help and open recognition by Saudi Arabia and encouraged by USA to pacify Afghanistan after the chaos in the wake of withdrawal of Soviet troops. USA was interested in Zionists owned Union Oil using Afghanistan for petroleum pipe lines to transport central Asian energy to the Arabian Sea coast and beyond and to energy hungry fast developing India .Across Pakistan, the religious tenor has been correspondingly radicalised, the tolerant, Sufi-minded Barelvi form of Islam is now overtaken by the rise of the more hardliner and politicized Wahhabism. Remember Sri Lankan cricketers were ambushed in Lahore by armed Wahhabi Jihadists.
    Wahhabi cadres trained in Pakistan and Afghanistan on return to their countries in Middle East spread that culture, which now threatens most of them and has seeped even into Europe , which hosts tens of millions of Muslims .
    Present Zionist and Wahhabi doctrines foresee the fall of Iran, Belarus, and, ultimately Russia and China, after the fall of Damascus, to the combined forces of NATO and the Saudi- and Qatari-backed Wahhabis, who make up a large portion of the anti Syrian movement. Like Saudi Arabia, Qatar is also funds Wahhabi Jihadist movements world-wide. Saudi Arabia directly supported terrorist activities in several countries including Syria, Libya, Pakistan, Afghanistan, the Philippines, Indonesia, Chechnya and Bosnia
    Sufism which is vigorously present throughout South Asia including Sri Lanka for several centuries, ia an entirely indigenous Islamic resistance movement to fundamentalism. Oil rich Saudi Arabia greatly began to penetrate Sri Lanka’s adherents to Islam in 70′s. With the increased funding by the Saudi Arabia with their petro dollars, Wahhabi followers have increased and are now responsible for the sectarian clashes that are slowly increasing among peace loving Sri Lankan Muslims especially in the Eastern Province. It is sadly true but there is a rising trend of Wahhabi Jihadism in Sri Lanka. Wahhabis are trying to take the peaceful Islamic community in Sri Lanka down the path of extremism and violence.Wahhabi fundamentalism has advanced so quickly in Sri Lanka partly because the House of Saud has financed the building of so many madrasas. The Wahhabis have already created deep divisions in among Sri Lankan Muslims and have formed gangs that intimidate moderate Muslims who speak out against Wahhabi fanatics. Like the Christian fundamentalist groups using NGOs to convert innocent poor families to Christianity, Wahhabis help poor Muslim families by providing cash and other material benefits to convert the innocent poor Muslim families into their cult. By building churches and madrasas all over the world to harvest the poor souls is truely very clever idea. Wahhabis even use Sri Lankan Government Cultural and Religious Affairs Departments to continue their nefarious activities.
    Wahhabis claim that moderate Sri Lankan Muslims do not know anything of Islam and only themselves are the real scholars of Islam. But Wahhabis preach only “dawah” of hatred, terror and murder. To understand the deranged mentality of Wahhabis look at the “fitna” the Wahhabis have caused in Pakistan. The Government authorities must investigate every Wahhabi school and propagandist in the Eastern Province to make sure they are not preaching things that are inimical to Sri Lanka. Saudi Arabia remains a critical financial support base for al-Qaida, Taliban, Lashkar-e-Taiba and other Wahhabi terrorist groups. Saudi Arabia spends 87 billion US dollar per year to spread Wahhabism world-wide. Scholarships are offered to our Muslims youths to go to Wahhabi institutions in Saudi Arabia and Egypt. But those who completed their Wahhabi studies returned to Sri Lanka and propagate Wahhabism.
    Wahhabis have infiltrated Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation (SLBC). Almost all the participants and staffers in the Muslim section of Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation are Wahabis and use the State radio to propagate Wahhabism. Not only Wahhabis run private unlicensed radio stations in the Eastern Province, also armed Wahhabis often attack mosques and leaders of the Sufi sect.
    Wahhabism in Srilanka is headquartered in Kattankudi is a new politico-religious movement that is sweeping the Eastern province of Sri Lanka with more than sixty Muslim Wahhabi organizations helping in propagating the movement throughout Sri Lanka and has raced ahead and taken control of the Jihadist and Al Fatah groups in Sri Lanka under their wings. Wahhabism is imported and planted in the midst of peace-loving Muslims in Sri Lanka, mostly through the lavish inflow of Saudi money pumped into Sri Lanka has overtaken other Islamic organizations by threats, intimidation and coercion.
    Remember Colonel Lateef was gun down by the prominent Wahhabi militant `Police` Faiz in Oddamavadi. CIA introduced Wahhabism in Sri Lanka through Saudi Arabia as a means of countering the growing support for Iran and Sufism among the Sri Lankan Muslims since CIA had calculated that Wahhabism would be an effective rival theology to prevent the spread of Iranian influence in Sri Lanka.
    Clashes between Sufis and Wahhabi Muslims in Kattankudi and Oddamavadi are regular occurrence . More than 200 homes of Sufi followers were burnt down by Wahhabi Jihadists in Kattankudi during similar clashes occurred in October 2004.
    One of the Sufi leaders Abdul Payilvan died in Colombo was buried at in Kattankudi the next day. Wahhabi Muslims observed a hartal and demanded the removal of the body from the burial grounds. Wahhabi Muslims claim Kattankudy soil is sacred and bodies belonging to those who preach views contradictory to Wahhabism should not be buried there. Wahhabis demanded that the body of Abdul Payilvan, who is from Maruthamunai in the Ampara district, should be exhumed and buried elsewhere.
    Wahhabis had dug up the buried body of another Sufi Muslim from Mosque burial grounds and dumped the body on a local road as an act of protest. Kattankudi Police recovered the body, re-buried it in the original burial ground and guarded burial ground for few days.
    In Kattankudi, the hatred between Wahhabis and Sufis has widened in the last few years and has grown in intensity, left many injured, and caused damage to several houses and vehicles.
    Though residing in Sri Lanka illegally, P Jainul Abedin – a powerful Wahhabi preacher from Tamil Nadu – is now leading the Wahhabi Jihadism in Kattankudi.
    A more recent 2009 clash in the south-western Muslim coastal town of Beruwala reflects similar religious tensions between a popular Sufi sheikh and a nearby Wahhabi congregation.
    Saudi agents have successfully penetrated Sri Lankan Muslims social fabric and have managed to defeat the Sufism in their game. Due to the training afforded by the House of Saud now the Wahhabis have prevailed over the Sufis. The Muslims in Sri Lanka have been subdued due to the Wahhabi influence while Buddhists have been agitating for the release of Rizana Naffek – teenage housemaid from Muthur who was sentenced to death by a Wahhabi Sharia Court in Saudi Arabia.
    The House of Saud pretending to be the leaders of the Islam promote their Wahhabi ideology world-wide. The result has been the birth of al-Qaida, Taliban, Lashkar-e-Taiba and other Wahhabi terrorist groups which are killing Sunni and Shia Muslims alike in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
    Wahhabism has been taking roots in Maldives from the days of Maumoon Abdul Gayoom. Abandoning its tolerant, syncretic brand of Islam, Maldives now moves towards an intolerant Wahhabi society. Recently two Maldives MPs – Dr Afrasheem Ali & Aishath Velezinee – were killed by Wahhabi Jihadists.
    Al-Qaida, Taliban, Lashkar-e-Taiba are overseen by the CIA and Mossad who want to destabilise countries that are not friendly to them. Because the House of Saud depends on the Americans for its security it always obeys American orders. The constant demonization of Iran and now the war against Syrian leader Bashar Al-Assad confirms a perception that Western Countries have joined with the Wahhabis in the Wahhabis’ war on the Shiites. Wahhabi Jihadism remains a long-term security risk to the civilized world. In particular, through the spread of Wahhabi education in tens of thousands of religious schools world-wide, the practitioners of Wahhabism are breeding tens of millions of youth who are certain to remain outside the productive economy, and as a consequence, seethe with resentment and anger against the rest of society.
    Even the forced exodus of the Hindu Pandit community from the Kashmir Valley in India during the early 1990s, and the destruction of several Hindu and Sikh temples by the Wahhabi Jihadists in Kashmir, failed to slow down the volume of laudatory coverage of what were portrayed Wahhabi Jihadists as freedom fighters battling cruel Indian Army in Jammu and Kashmir State by the Western media. The “Kashmir Model” of using the language of democracy and human rights to win Western support, even while adhering to a contrary policy in practice was widely used to topple Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi. Wahhabis hated Muammar al-Gaddafi for the fact that he ruled Libya, with no quarter given to Wahhabi demands as the imposition of Sharia law or the banning of women’s dress other than the abaya. After Muammar al-Gaddafi was defeated and killed, Wahhabi Jihadists who took over Libya as a result of huge help from Nicholas Sarkozy and David Cameron have lost no time in imposing a Wahhabi version of Sharia law in Libya and in killing and jailing those who disagree with their extremist world-view. Fortunately for them, Western media channels that were once filled with news about Libya under Muammar al-Gaddafi are now silent about the immense human rights violations taking place in Libya after its “liberation” in 2011.
    Western governments and their media commentators now claim that the Wahhabi Jihadist “Muslim Brotherhood” is “moderate” and that the so-called “Wahhabi Salafis” in Egypt are merely “conservative.” Peace loving Muslims from the Balkans to Bengal have expressed their disagreement with this benign view.
    Seeing the success of such a pitch in Libya, Wahhabi Jihadists against the Syrian leader Bashar Al-Assad, have begun cultivating the Western media and public opinion, the way the Wahhabi Jihadists in Kashmir used to do in the 1990s.
    So extreme has the identification with such elements become, that even the largest Western media outlets accept without question such “facts” as that Syrian leader Bashar Al-Assad bombed his own troops and facilities in order “to blame it on the insurgents.” Since the armed uprising by Wahhabi Jihadists began in Syria several thousand members of the Syrian security forces and their family members have been killed by the Wahhabi insurgents, who themselves have lost thousands of their own.
    However, those relying on Western media are told that every such death has been caused by the Syrian security forces, ignoring the deadly violence that is being unleashed in Syria by groups of armed Wahhabi mobs.
    Today in Syria, women can dress as they please. Were the Wahhabi Jihadists to take control, this freedom might soon be replaced with the obligation to wear the full veil. Already in Egypt and in Tunisia, the secular ethos of the country is rapidly giving way to Wahhabism.
    While Western countries are opposed to Wahhabi Jihadism and Sharia law in their own countries, in the Arab countries they favor Wahhabi Jihadism over those who are secular. The result is a galloping Wahhabism and its Sharia law across the Arab countries.
    Since the Western countries subterfuge to destabilise Sri Lanka, by surreptitiously supporting the LTTE failed, now the Western countries will promote Wahhabi Jihadism to cause strife and trouble to destabilize Sri Lanka. Wahhabi followers – al-Qaida, Taliban, Lashkar-e-Taiba and other Wahhabi terrorist groups – have caused untold misery in several countries including Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. Sri Lanka appears to be their next target. The Sri Lankan government must take immediate strict measures to control Wahhabi organizations and ban them. Wahhabis have already built several illegal Mosques in Sri lanka using Saudi Arabia’s petro dollar. The overwhelming peace loving, tolerant and intensely patriotic Muslims of Sri Lanka will extend their support to the government in this matter. As the Wahhabis are even capable of starting ethnic riots between the peaceful Sinhalese and the Muslims, the Sri Lankan government must not be lethargic on this matter.
    Significant obstruction to Wahhabi aggression now appears in the peripheral Muslim communities, including the Balkans no less than Sri Lanka and India. Calling itself “the world’s largest democracy” and possessing the third largest Muslim population in the world, India has produced a stiffer resistance to Wahhabism than any of the lands of the “Arab Spring.” If Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Qatar are bulwarks of extremism and tyranny, peace loving, tolerant and intensely patriotic Indian Muslims may provide a barrier to Wahhabi Jihadist ambitions. With their widely-respected intellectual heritage, their close link with spiritual Sufism, and their demonstrated loyalty to their mother land, the Indian Muslims have shown the world that Western governments are wrong to accommodate fanatic Wahhabism. A struggle against Wahhabism that may have been lost in Egypt, Libya, Mali, Iraq, Bahrain, Afghanistan and Pakistan may be won in India and Sri Lanka.
