The unsung heroes of the calamity

The bombs went off,the  country was shocked, deaths, injured, search for the relatives……. while these were going on with spot lights on them, two groups who silently, without seeking any publicity were doing their duty. 

One is the health sector employees from doctors down to labourers. They deserve  a deep bow for working round the clock providing the much needed treatmènt for the affected.

 The other group who need even more appreciation is the police, navy and army – the tri forces  risking their own lives in order to protect the common man from further harm.  The onès who went to search suspicious houses, who checked unmanned vehicles for explosives and who   safely detonated the bombs in controlled fashion  – all were putting their lives out on line for the country.  

Hats off to all of  you, brave  sons and daughters of Srilanka! We salute you, pray for you and thanķ you!

    The dead locals are Sinhalese Christians and Muslims both religions Hinduthwa wants out of India and its neighbors.

    India knew the locations and even the names of the bombers and they had a local group in South India of the same names.

    It is Tirupati that spared the Taj hotel? I am sure Sirisena prayed for it!

    Taj is always frequented by our king makers like Chandrika, Atul Keshap’ of the days gone by,Mr. Singh; local Indians and Indian from overseas.

    Taj is part of TATA and our tea is next on the line with Tetley’s.



    The Gangodawila Magistrate’s Court on 7 December ordered the Police to speed up their investigations into the sexual assault cum abuse of children at the Darun Nusra orphanage in Dehiwala and refer their findings to the Attorney General’s Department.
    This Muslim orphanage Darun Nusra is run by Al-Muslimaath, of which Dr. Mareena Reffai is the founder.
    All the girls at the orphanage were below 18 years and had been placed under the care of the Department of Probation who had sent the children to this orphanage.
    A silent protest was held in front of the Court, in support of the 18 girls subjected to sexual abuse while they were in care of this Muslim orphanage, and against the Muslim perpetrator who committed the offence. The protest was organized by a collective of various humanitarian organisations, activists and volunteers. The perpetrator – 62-year-old Mohamed Sarippuge Mohar, was living at the orphanage premises.
    The perpetrator is being accused under one charge of grave sexual assault and eight charges of sexual abuse. However, he is presently out on bail.
    Shiraz Noordeen, the Counsel representing several teenagers, noted that the fact that the Police investigation with regard to the case had not been concluded has resulted in justice being delayed. “The lethargic process of the Police investigation has undermined this case.” Accordingly, the Magistrate ordered the Kohuwala Police to conclude the investigations and refer the case to the Attorney General’s Department for advice.
    The group of counsels representing the teenage orphans informed the Court that the Kohuwala Police had failed to record the statement of a volunteer teacher at the orphanage.
    The National Child Protection Agency is presently investigating the issue and preparing its report.
    Ceylon Today has previously learnt that Dr. Reffai had, despite being notified on repeated occasions of “the despicable act of sexual molestation of the girls at Darun Nusra, which were committed by the suspect and had been taking place since 2015,”, turned a blind eye to it and continued to employ the perpetrator until he was arrested this year.
