    This reporter is absolutely right and on the spot. I have been saying that pundits who lay blame on Sinhalas for the recent mayhem must ask whether the law treat everyone equally in Sri Lanka. Muslims with no helmet ride motorbikes in all Muslim majority towns with impunity. Sinhalas and others are fined heavily if caught riding without helmets. National reservations for wild life are encroached incessantly and dished out among Muslims by the kingpins of ‘political Islam’. In the name of reconciliation (සංහිඳියාව) yahapalanaya rulers let racists and bigots do as they please. But the Buddhist monk who adopted an elephant calf is remanded in custody. Invalid and severely maimed and crippled war veterans were baton charged and water cannoned when parades to demand their legitimate pensions. In short, ‘yahapalanaya’ law was deaf and blind to minorities but bend and applied in full force to Sinhalas. No wonder Wahabi and Salafi influenced Muslim gang dare beat a lone lorry driver to death in the middle of a dead night for no reason.

    Ordinary Sinhala folks think ‘yahapalanaya’ regime is using the law to subjugate them. And it is such feelings that may fling not this annoying issue but a simple issue to a communal conflict or even mayhem.

    However, in my opinion things will be sorted out effortlessly if and when a firm government that respect our aged old Sinhala Buddhist culture that treat all citizens equal is in power. Let’s shove these yahapalana jokers out asap.

    I agree with Leela: A Patriotic Govt that respects the preponderant culture of our Motherland and treats ALL citizens STRICTLY EQUALLY is a MUST!

    Throw this PARA-GATHI DESHADROHI Yamapalanaya OUT, and RESTORE a DESHAPREMI Govt to our Resplendent Motherland!

    Wion is totally right about the growing threat of Wahabism in Sri Lanka being behind the recent incidents of communal violence. However, though she repeatedly and unreservedly describes the Sri Lankan Muslim community as one of the most peaceful Muslim communities (in the world), which may be true, she forgets to pay the same compliment to the more genuinely peaceful majority Buddhist community who are nevertheless being roundly condemned around the world for the recent violence. The obvious truth is that these incidents were the result of successful manipulative attempts by those who want to destabilize the state; these elements exploited the longstanding tensions between the Buddhists and the Wahabists among the Muslim community, which are entirely due to the latter’s aggressive acts such as publicly demanding the introduction of Islamic Sharia in the predominantly Buddhist country, encroachment of ancient Buddhist holy sites, creating Islamic enclaves in forest reserves, and many other unacceptable behaviours. Nationalist organizations like the BBS, and Mahasohon Balakaya have been pointing these out and demanding that impartial investigations be carried out and remedial actions taken where necessary. The failure of the responsible politicians to act and the silence of the Mahanayakes over many years, decades probably, is at the root of the trouble. People take the law into their own hands when the authorities (in this case, the government and the Mahanayakes and the Muslim clergy) don’t fulfill their responsibilities.
    To call it a ‘Wahabi backlash’ wrongly implies that the Buddhists initiated the trouble. A ‘Buddhist backlash’ would have been a more appropriate description.

    Yes. “Wahabism” is the hidden evil behind this

    Wahhabism not the root cause for anti-Muslim violence – experts

    By Yusuf Ariff

    Sri Lanka’s civil society activists and legal experts have rubbished a news report citing the spread of Wahhabism as the root cause for the recent spike in anti-Muslim violence in the country.

    They say the argument is often used by apologists of the intolerance and violence to detract from what the real causes and that claims Sri Lankan Muslims are anywhere close to any sort of insurgency is absolutely “rubbish and nonsense”.

    A news report by India’s World Is One News (WION) had claimed that while Sinhalese intolerance is on the rise in Sri Lanka, as apparent in the recent communal violence, the root cause for the distrust of Muslims in Sri Lanka lies in the alarming spread of Wahhabism among one of the most tolerant and peaceful Muslim communities of the world.

    “It is true that Sinhalese intolerance is on the rise and this time it is not Sri Lanka’s Tamils who are the targets but the country’s nearly 2 million Muslims. There can be no justification for violence of course, but one must examine the root cause of the distrust of Muslims in Sri Lanka since 2009.”

    “And that root cause lies in the alarming spread of Wahhabism among one of the most tolerant and peaceful Muslim communities of the world, that of Sri Lanka,” WION’s Padma Rao said.

    However, the executive director of the Centre for Policy Alternatives (CPA) Dr. Paikiasothy Saravanamuttu stated that the argument that at the root of anti-Muslim violence in this country is the rise of Wahhabism in the Muslim community is not one that he agrees with at all.

    “I think this argument is used quite often by sympathizers and apologists of the intolerance and indeed sadly of the violence to detract from what the real causes are,” he said, speaking to Ada Derana.

    He stated that an increase in Wahhabism undoubtedly fuels the Islamophobia that exists in the country, but he believes if one looks at the violence the main reasons are largely economic which are then fueled, exacerbated and reinforced by various cultural and religious arguments of one kind or another.

    “Perhaps it is very much the fear of the unknown.” He stated that the Goebbelsian type of propaganda about this country fast becoming a Muslim-majority country, the ridiculous arguments about infertility pills and all such suggest that there is a very “organized group” of people who are concerned with a multi-ethnic and multi-religious Sri Lanka.

    The civil society activist said that the incumbent government needs to give out a vision of this Sri Lanka as being multi-ethnic and multi-religious and will be protected and defended as such and that the full force of the law will be brought to bear upon them without fear or favor.

    Dr. Saravanamuttu stated that the rise of Wahhabism within the Muslim community of this country is something that first and foremost needs to be dealt with from within the Muslim community and it is indeed incumbent on them to deal with any signs of extremism as it is incumbent on any religious or ethnic community within this country to do likewise.

    “We mustn’t detract from the cardinal fundamental question ‘do we or do we not want a multi-religious and multi-ethnic Sri Lanka and are we not going to bring the full force of the law of the land to bear on those who do not want it?’”. “We need to act fast and fierce,” he stressed.

    Deputy President of the Bar Association of Sri Lanka (BASL) President’s Counsel M.U.M. Ali Sabry meanwhile believes that there are regional and international players with regional and international agendas trying to create divisions and diversions of the real cause and the real problems amongst the Sri Lankans.

    “Of course we need to address the root cause. But to exaggerate that Sri Lankan Muslims are somewhere close to any sort of insurgency is absolute rubbish and nonsense,” he told Ada Derana.

    In the meantime, he said, Sri Lankan Muslims have a duty to resurrect there Sri Lankan Muslim sub-culture which they have inherited because “alienating our own culture during the last few years played into the hands of extremists” who are hell-bent on creating problems for the Muslims.

    “Need not go after anybody else’s culture. Culture is different, religion and ethnicity is different. Our nationality is Sri Lankan.”

    The WION news report claimed that Saudi Arabia has reportedly trained and been dispatching English-speaking Wahhabi speakers around the world and that most people are concerned that immigration control is not doing enough to prevent such known radicles from entering the country and slowly indoctrinating and poisoning the minds of Sri Lanka’s second largest minority.

    Mr Sabry said that there is absolutely no basis at all to the reports “painting a very bleak picture” about certain well-known Islamic priests who have come to Sri Lanka, probably one a year. “They never ever advocate any sorts of hardlining.”

    He stated that some of the well-known international secret services and intelligence agencies are in operation in Sri Lanka and that in some of the elections they have privately and also publicly proclaimed to being involved in certain regime changes which had taken place in Sri Lanka.

    “So they are hell-bent on creating divisions within the communities in Sri Lanka so that instability of the region and instability of the country. We should not play into this agenda,” he said.
