Under whose orders did attackers come in bikes & buses to attack Muslim shops 3 weeks after EasterSunday bombings in Sri Lanka?
Posted on May 15th, 2019

Is there proof beyond reasonable doubt that the attacks on 13/14 May 2019 in various parts of North Central/Western province was by Sinhalese? Were the attacks a form of collective guilt that Germans suffered after end of World War 2 when Allies treated all Germans as guilty as Hitler? But then why did ‘attackers’ come in bikes & busloads with SWORDS if they are supposed to be from the area? Who sent these bikes & buses of attackers? The narrative is usually written by the usual culprits whose paymasters expect them to tow the usual majority-minority slogan and occasions like this are super chances for them to beat the drums. However, if no revenge attack took place immediately after Easter Sunday, if no revenge attacks took place even after hundreds of swords, arms & ammunition began surfacing, how did an attack take place 3 weeks after Easter Sunday and after the Government stopped media showing what the police & armed forces were apprehending from homes & mosques?

21 April 2019 was Easter Sunday and Catholics prepared to go to church and hotels had arranged special meals for the occasion. 6 successive bombs exploded in 3 churches and 3 hotels killing over 250 worshippers and guests at the hotels along with hotel staff.

There was no bigger shock than this to a nation that bid goodbye to LTTE suicide bombings, assassinations in May 2009. The nation had just 10 years of peace and on 21 April 2019 what LTTE could never do in 30 years 9 rich educated Muslims indoctrinated by militant Islam did to end the lives of innocent people. As the number of dead got counted and shock turned to anger this would have been the best occasion for a revenge attack. But it did not happen not only because the army & police were on guard or because curfew was placed but because the people knew the culprits were not ordinary Muslims but militant Islam adhering Muslims. It was to everyone’s credit that people were quick to identify the root causes of this radicalization and the call to ban burka/nikab was even welcomed by the Muslim Council.

The 2nd shock came when the people came to know that not only did the Government receive specific intel information from overseas since April 4th April (4th, 11th, 16th & 2hours before Easter Attacks) no one in the government had taken action except not to attend church themselves. The intel information not only had the venues of the suicide missions but even the names of the suicide bombers and specifically mentioned Easter Sunday as the chosen date of attack. The PM jumped to say he did not know but had to reverse that statement soon afterwards. A Minister unashamedly claimed his father told him not to go to church specifically mentioning St. Anthony’s Church would be attacked. This digital minister never informed the Cardinal or even thought of sending a twitter note to general public either. This was nothing but criminal negligence on the part of the government to which the President & Prime Minister must be held accountable. No country would have allowed deaths to happen after such precise intel information sent 17 days before an attack. The people were angry & the government needed to devise a plan to divert people’s anger away from them.

What are the options for a Government who was at the receiving end of wrath by all the communities in Sri Lanka including its own party supporters? This is a thought, readers must continuously keep in mind throughout this discussion.

The next shock came when police and army began rounding up suspects within 24hours of the attack. How could authorities round up suspects connected to the attacks so quickly? It later came to be known that the authorities had intel information since 2011. So we return to why the Government did not use the intel agencies to round up the suspects before Easter Sunday after the foreign intel was clear that a radical Islamic group was going to carry out the attack? Government was guilty by inaction for 2nd time.

It became known later that there are 6 Thawheed groups operating in Sri Lanka with the National Thawheed Jamaat set up in 2011 aggressively promoting Shariah law. The then government had set up 2 intel units in Giritale & Kurunegala camps with 5000 intel officers proficient even in Arabic language to keep track of these extremist Muslims. In 2012, some 161 foreign Islamic missionaries were deported. The Directorate of Military Intelligence knew that locals were fighting in Syria in 2013. One Mohamed Muhsin Nilam left for Mecca in 2013 and died in 2015. Never have we seen entire families taking part in radical militant Islam. Nilam’s brother, Nilam’s wife, 6 children, wife’s parents, two of wife’s brothers including 36 from 3 families went to Syria and this was the 3 families that Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapakse referred to in 2016 while adding that foreign extremist teachers were teaching at Muslim International schools in Beruwela, Kalmunai, Kala Eliya, Kurunegala. A H M Azeer denied this as did Rauff Hakeem. It was the refusal to accept radical Islam spreading or being indirect beneficiaries of the handouts given by these well-monied groups that resulted in not only NTJ but the setting up of Jamiyathul Millana Ibrahim Fi Sellani (JMI) in 2015 by one Umair from Colombo 10 – the DMI was aware of this too. The state intelligence even in 2015 knew of Aadhil Ameez from Aluthgama, a computer wizard who used various alias on social media to draw people to support ISIS. Aadhil was recently arrested in India. When we know ISIS is a ‘made in USA’ just as Al Qaeda we seriously have to wonder if radical Islam was planned to facilitate the pivot to Sri Lanka by West?

So we return to ask, was the Government complicit in allowing radical Islam to evolve to facilitate the pivot to Sri Lanka plan?

Even Muslims opposed the radicalism being nurtured among the Muslim community. They called for action by the government we fear that these activities if left unchecked by the authorities would create a situation in which the majority of Muslims in Sri Lanka may have to face the wrath of other religions”.

It was aspects of this extremism that was left undealt with that resulted in what took place in Aluthgama given a political twist, months before a crucial regime change election. People have to be wiser to realize that the radicalism was a factor that was a grievance to non-Muslims of the area coupled with the manner authorities were getting influenced to do nothing and this was a super time to plan a riot that would result in denying a bloc vote to the then government. It worked superbly because during that period the narrative was written in such away that there was no radical Islam in Sri Lanka and everyone speaking against burka, halal, proliferation of mosques etc were simply Buddhist extremists and the media went to town tagging them all sorts of names while nicely camouflaged the festering extremism taking place. Media has much to answer in equal measure as the Government for giving space/columns to only one side to always vilifying the majority of Sri Lanka.

The next shock to the people came when police & army began search operations across the country.

What did they find & where?

  • Mannar – Digital tape to launch laser attack & an unregistered drone
  • Pulmoddai – 89 detonators, water gels in a house
  • Hingurana Sugar factory stores – 300 large knives gone missing
  • Mosque near PM’s residence – 20 camouflage military uniforms,
  • Inside house of the President & Treasurer of mosque in Moragoda, Galle – 797 cds of scenes inciting violence

  • Under bed of Moulavi of Kadil Jumma mosque – 46 swords,
  • Maskeliya Jumma mosque – unused swords

  • War Items – detonators and explosives,   gelignite , petrol bombs, safety fuses (each about 12.5ft in length) grenades and weapons such as axes, daggers, guns,  swords, knives, pistols and  ammunition. Suicide vests, walkie–talkies, hi-tech equipment, army uniforms, camouflage uniforms, bogus degree certificates,  bogus IDs, bogus passports,  savings books of Bank of Ceylon. CDs and DVDs containing extremist propaganda.

Let us completely negate the efforts to claim 13/14 May 2019 attack as being retaliatory because revenge attacks are spontaneous attacks. Any attack happening 3 weeks after has to be a well- coordinated and planned attack often aligned to a political agenda.

Why did police arrest only youth of the area? Why did PM insist the police charge these Sinhala youth with ICCPR when all Muslims arrested with swords are released after being handed over by the army?

The Chilaw incident was a precursor – a Muslim facebook post which was taken to the police to file complaint was not entertained by police that led to attack on that shop. Again we return to question why the Chilaw police did not entertain the complaint and take action against the Muslim which would have averted any chaos that ensued in Chilaw?

If Muslims in the areas affected, say police and army just watched – the only reason why police & army would ‘just watch’ is if they were given orders to do so! Isn’t that why some army personnel are also in hospital with injuries!

When PM and Bathurdeen with his personal TV channel crew run to the scene and take photos of the mayhem isn’t this part of the political plan to stoke communal tensions. A tactic used by ISIS in Middle East was to project images of Western forces harassing Muslim women to anger them into joining their ‘cause’ – probably this is why there is frequent reference by Muslim Ministers to ‘innocent women’! Flogging discrimination against Muslims is one of the best methods to get chunks from the $87billion Wahhabi kitty.

The incident brought to mind 1983 when attackers had voter lists in hand and knew exactly which houses were Tamil. We do not need to be reminded of the role UNP played in the 1983 riots! Sinhalese were blamed completely ignoring that they sheltered families in their homes. The same Sinhalese families kept the Muslim staff & owners of the shops under attack in May 2019 in their homes too. But this is not sensational enough and media prefer to only vilify the Sinhalese and only that gets relayed across international media.


Why has there been no media attention to the fact that Sinhala shops were also attacked. EKKO the largest textile shop in Minuwangoda town was also attacked damaging stocks. Another Sinhalese glass shop owner in Burulapitiya was also attacked by people arriving in 20 motorcycles. If he shouted ‘I am Sinhalese’ and still the shop was attacked are we to presume the attackers were not Sinhalese?

Let’s not forget that the UNP goons that attacked in 1983 comprised thugs that were Sinhalese, Muslims and Tamils they cared little about being Sinhalese, Tamils, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Islamic or Christians – so long as they were given some payment for their arson and the ability to loot!

Let’s also not forget the recent Digana attacks were also led by busload of mobs and many believe UNP had a hand in this too.

This is what the then UNP President JR Jayawardena said two weeks before 1983 riots

…I am not worried about the opinion of the Jaffna people now …if I starve the Tamils, Sinhala people will be happy…”

It took 35 years for the PM to admit UNP role in the burning of Jaffna Library in 1981.

Hypocrisies and government bias stand out

People putting facebook posts are arrested and denied bail while the 9 suspects (paid Rs.30,000 each, using multiple SIM cards, names not included in attendance registry) working at the Wellampitiya copper factory owned by one of the suicide bombers are released immediately after arrest.

Are we going to allow the narrative to dictate to us? 250 plus lives sadly became a silver lining for the entire country to realize that a jihad war was being planned with cells, arms, swords and safehouses being set up in mosques and homes. No amount of vilification against the majority Sinhala Buddhists can hide this fact.

If it was a retaliation attack – it should be Catholics attacking the Muslims. Why place blame on Sinhala Buddhists?

Are we to forget all of these terrorist acts, terror preparations & a jihad war against Buddhists, Hindus & Catholics/Christians by carrying out a vilification campaign against Sinhala Buddhist to hide the bigger danger?

    This is a master piece of journalism.

    Great contribution to Mother Lanka’s survival Shenali.

  2. Vaisrawana Says:

    Shenali, this is the sort of thing that the UN Special advisors who wrote the extremely fallacious “Note to Correspondents: Joint Statement on Sri Lanka by UN Special Advisors on Prevention of Genocide and Responsibility to Protect” in the official UN website https://www.un.org/sg/en/content/sg/note-correspondents/2019-05-13….. should be confronted with. It is an ominous piece of serious misinformation that points towards a probable American invasion under the pretext of R2P. Thank you, for this kind of painstaking journalism in the name of Mother Lanka.

    Traitor alugosuwa (to Sinhalese Buddhists, Sri Lanka and Buddhism only) thambi mudiyanselage [email protected] taught the
    traitor United National Pannyainparty aka UNPatriotic_rats how to carry on without holding elections. Burn the
    country and murder Sinhalese Budhists (nobody questions, no UN, no AI, no NGO kakkan etc. etc. while being
    careful not to hurt/murder tamils/mussies/catholics since it is a war crime). Now after plunder, plunder and
    plunder traitor chief die hard catholic token Buddhist bay gal karaya mega thief mega thakkadiya walking
    crime bomb (against Sinhalese Buddhists, Sri Lanka and Buddhism only) Batalande wa(n)dakaya Pol Pot [email protected]_
    leech wickrama Sinhala killer can’t face an election and wants to save its pathetic skin.. After getting the pathala
    man job fronting puppet the vairapala sorry sena, wa(n)dakaya tried to gnite mussie riots in Kandy, then
    Mawanella and finally, finally succeeded.

    As you can already see wa(n)dakaya is very very active imprisoning Sinhalese youth while mollycoddling
    bada uuru deen, empty dog aka his bxlla, a sad ali (not enough children to be sad?), slimy SM marakkalaya,
    muji bxlla raha bxlla, xxxxheem etc. etc. who are responsible for aiding and abetting mass breeding, land
    grabbing and finally terrorism. Wa(n)dakaya doesn’t have portuguese top police brass or portuguese top deshapaluwas brutal enough (has only one – minister of erection (permanent) john baas) tocarry on like during
    the BHEESHANA SAMAYA to brutally massacre Sinhalese Buddhists. But the traitor ow life has enough fools in the police to brutalise Sinhalese youth. But these fools have conveniently forgotten how it can lead them and the tri forces to go in coffins while this dragged on like last time. Remember? Sinhala modayas are famous for having short memory as well.

    Traitor United National Ponnyains aka traitor UNPatriotic_rats know mussie votes are a solid block vote for the
    low lives and want to make sure the mussies are safe and it will find some Sinhala Buddhist modayas to get
    into power thambi mudiyanselage [email protected]’s constitution.

    At the same time traitor low life mantra has been jaathyanthare, jaathyanthare to get the US involved who are
    eagerly waiting in the wings like a vulture to poke its head to sideline China. So traitor low life Batalande wa(n)dakaya knows Plan A or Plan B should work, and it and its thieving, lying, Mother Lanka dismembering, minority worshiping, treacherous thugs can survive without elections for another 10/20/30 years just like traitor
    alugosuwan [email protected] and lk porisada @ did. Burn the country, murder Sinhalese Buddhists and carry on partying.

    The traitor low lives knows they are in Sinhala modayas’ paradise. Not for very long it is going to be Sinhala
    modayas, since the fastest breeding religion aka religion of violence has bred enough, soon you will have to
    surrender the country. The way these United National Ponnyainsparty aka traitor UNPatriotic_rats handling
    this mussie threat you can see it clearly.

    Sorry to divert a bit from the thread.
    Today both Lankadeepa and Hiru TV gave a news about some Rs. 4 million sent by terrorists fighting in Syria. This is hiding the truth. How can they send Rupees from Syria; it is simply laundering the drug money to buy more stuff and these media houses think Lankans are idiots. It is mostly head covered women who carry drugs and the truth may be very far from the story given by the Sinhala media.
    On another news item a military head was having ‘kate pittu’ and was looking for words when questions were asked. According to him the swords have been kept for self protection. He should explain how many swords any family can keep in the house.

    “Wetath niyarath goyam kaanam……..”

  5. shenali Waduge Says:

    I believe the minister who said swords were for protection is now trying to put a Bill to legalise madrassas and ‘ISLAMIC STUDIES’ – wahhabism would also be an Islamic study — our clowns for money probably given from the $87BILLION wahhabi kitty may pass this to legalise Shariah in Sri Lanka… our buffoons in Parliament is going to ruin the lives of all – including nonWahhabi Muslims
