RESPONSE TO FORMER PRESIDENT MAHINDA RAJAPAKSA’S STATEMENT ON MUSLIMS AND TAMILS TALKING TO THE “JOINT OPPOSITION”.
Posted on November 4th, 2016

By Noor Nizam, Convener – The Muslim Voice”. November 4th., 2016.

The late T.B. Jaya said that the Muslims should not put all their eggs in one basket”. Will the Muslims do this now?, Insha Allah.

It was reported in the popular Tamil website for Muslims – the www.jaffnamuslims.com that, at a meeting held this week at the residence of MP Prasana Ranathunge situated in Udugampola in the Gampha district, the former president Mahinda Rajapaksa had made a statement to the effect that the Tamils and the Muslims are talking to the Joint Opposition Group” to extend their support in the future political activities of the Joint Opposition Group”. While stating that the Yahapalana government” is continuously making allegations against the Joint Opposition Group” and the SLFP MP’s, local government politicians and the SLFP supporters at the grass level who are supporting the JO, that they are supporting campaigns that are harming the Tamil and Muslim communities, Mahinda Rajapaksa vehemently has opposed them as false propagander undertaken by the Yahapalana Government” and the UNP. It is time up that the Muslim Community in Sri Lanka should take serious note of what former President Mahinda Rajapaksa has said at the above meeting.

It is time up that a NEW POLITICAL FORCE that will be honest and sincere, to stand up and defend the Muslim Community politically and otherwise, especially from among the YOUTH, and safeguard the DIGNITY of our community has to emerge from within the Sri Lanka Muslim Community to face any new election in the coming future, Insha Allah.

It is true that we have allowed the affairs of our community to be taken control of unscrupulous, dishonest, deceptive, self-motivated, selfish, corrupt and manipulating Muslim politicians, Muslim political party leaders, Ulema and Media personnel, that has led our community to be considered as a 2nd., class community in Sri Lanka. In politics, we are considered as the community of political naanaas who turn the way their Fez Cap turns” to support any political party that comes to power for the personal gains of the political leaders of the Muslim parties. The Muslim politicians have hoodwinked and betrayed the Muslim Community wholesale. We need to think with our heads” NOT our hearts”, Insha Allah. Politically analyzing the Muslim Community of Sri Lanka, we may be a community of around 1.97 million persons (Ummah) by population, but as a political power, WE ARE A POWER TO OURSELVES, you should realize, Insha Allah. That is the representation of our COMMUNITY and The Muslim Voice” is a VOICE from among that Community, Alhamdulillah. We have a Muslim Vote bank of nearly 600,000(maybe more) in the 26 districts and 9 provinces of Sri Lanka. If we are UNITED as a Muslim political Force, we can achieve what late T.B. Jaya, S.L. Naina Marikkar, Cassim Ismail, Cassim Umar, Mactan Ismail, Ash Sheik Mohamedu Fazi, S.N. Ismail, L.M. Sapur, M.K. Saldin, N.H.M. Abdul Cader, Makan Makar and A.R. Razcik (later referred to as Sir Razick Fareed) achieved during their times in Nation Building, Independence, MUSLIM-Sinhala UNITY and National/Local Politics, Insha Allah.

The late T.B. Jaya said that the Muslims should not put all their eggs in one basket”. What did this mean? It meant that the Muslims should be represented in both the National Sinhala political parties. If the above great Muslims Leaders would have lived today, they would have just DECLARED that what THE MUSLIM VOICE” is ADVOCATING POLITICALLY is the appropriate move for the present times, Insha Allah. Mahinda might have been a bad example of a leader for the Muslims, between 2010 and 2015, but we cannot discard him as a political power. IT IS TIME UP THAT THE MUSLIMS SHOULD ALSO JOIN THIS POLITICAL FORCE NOW, Insha Allah.The rest we have to leave to God AllMighty Allah.

    MR gave very important ministries to Muslims. Hackhim got JUSTICE. Bathurdeen TRADE AND INVESTMENT! MUSTAPHA got other important ministries. FOWZI also got an important ministry. But they still dug his grave.

    I don’t think MOST SUNNI Muslims will vote for MR again. MR’s party should not waste time trying to win them. MR should focus on winning the small SHIA and other minority Muslim votes. He can also win POOR Muslims. They are grateful people. The problem is RICH Muslims.

    Wahabi, Deobandi, and Mawdud sects are growing in SL very fast funded by SAUDI. This has created a DIVISION within SUNNI Muslims. Some of them want this but others don’t. MR should MAKE USE of this division to win votes.

  4. Lorenzo Says:

    Sometimes NOT winning Tamil and Muslim votes is GOOD. Then the next govt. will not have to appease minorities.

    Yes I agree with Former President Mahinda Rajapakshe. We need all moderate forces who are for nation building, Sri Lanka’s independence, Sri Lanka’s freedom and unity of the entire Sri Lankan nation as one. We want all patriotic forces to come together and whether they are Sinhala Buddhist, Malay, Indian Tamil, Muslims, Burgher, Sinhala Catholics, Sinhala Christians, Burghers does not matter at all. I am deliberately not including the Sri Lankan Tamils here since we know that they are demanding mad, crazy demands such as Eelam and there is no point talking to them even, which is a total waste of time. We need an honest government in the future who will restore the fertilizer subsidy, free school uniforms, free milk at schools, restoration of the samurdhi to its previous level, restoration of the pension to its previous level, restoration of the mahapola to its previous level, encourage vocational training and vocational training colleges, implement a vocational trained youth, youth farmers etc. succeed in starting up SMEs or farms and help them until they succeed (a youth employment programme), a government which understands that the majority of youth will not do ‘A’ levels or go to university and so it is important for vocational training, farming skills be provided to such youth and a youth employment programme to be implemented, enhance the Nenasala i.e. IT and English leaning centres commenced by the Mahinda Rajapakshe government etc.

    Most importantly we need a government who will help the rice farmer sell his rice at a decent price, switch from a wheat based diet to a rice based diet, restoration of api wawamu, rata nagamu, restoration of the dairy industry so that we produce all our own dairy produce, tax food imports such as potatoes, onions, chillie etc. and encourage the local potato, onion, chille farmers. We need a government who will help the tea, rubber, coconut, cinnamon, spices sector. We need a government who will stop the illegal fishing by Indian fishermen in the Northern seas, encourage the ornamental fisheries industry, tourism etc. We also need PS, MC,UC’s who will clean up all drains and sidewalks, collect rubbish and dispose of such properly in an environmentally friendly way, dredge all canals, lakes of mud etc.

    We need a government who will restore the kanthale, pelawatte sugar factories, restore the Valachchenei paper factory, restore the KKS cement factory, initiate a fruit juice, jam making factory since we have so much fruit and vegetables, improve the cooperative system and expand the sathosa system, restore the hand loom industry, basically produce all these ourselves,reduce imports, create youth employment in the process and save our foreign exchange.

    We need a government who would let the Sri Lankan security forces freedom to decide all security measures that need to be taken, be taken without any interference from any external forces, who will safeguard the unitary state of the country etc. We also need to ensure that anyone whether Sinhala Buddhist, Malay, Indian Tamil, Moors, Burgher, Sinhala Catholics, Sinhala Christians, Burghers is free to live anywhere in the country without any fear whatsoever, especially in the North. We need a government who can tell the TNA and all external forces that this island belongs to all islanders in common and that no bit part of this island is exclusive to any specific group of people. This should be reflected in the constitution that Sri Lanka is a unitary state etc.

    I agree with Former President Mahinda Rajapakshe, all moderate and patriotic forces must come together does snot matter whether they are Sinhala Buddhist, Malay, Indian Tamil, Muslims, Burgher, Sinhala Catholics, Sinhala Christians, Burghers does not matter at all. We must help Sri Lanka t its hour of need from interference by external forces and demands such as Eelam and federal states etc. We must have a constant dialogue, communicate with each other and arrive at a common platform. This yahapalanaya government should let a more patriotic group of people govern the country since they have completely failed so far and is being extremely treacherous towards the country and they have also reduced the economy to a very low level with the bind scams etc. The least that should happen is for PM Ranil Wickramasinghe to resign immediately at least.

  7. Christie Says:

    I hope Sinhala Buddhists, Christians and Muslims will unite under Mahinda’s new party and stand up to the Indian Empire and Indian colonial parasites.
