Islamic Fundamentalism and the Wahabi Cult in Sri Lanka

It is sadly true but there is a rising trend of “Islamic fundamentalism” in Sri Lanka, and the blame for this can be squarely laid at the feet of the Wahabis who are trying to take the peaceful Sri Lankan Muslim community down the path of extremism and violence.ƒÆ’‚£ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¡‚¬

The Wahabis have already created deep divisions in many Sri Lankan Muslim villages and have formed gangs that intimidate moderates who speak out against their thuggery. Like the Christian fundamentalist groups running about Sri Lanka they help poor Muslim families and youths by providing cash and other material benefits and cunningly increase their following. These Wahabis are getting more than enough money from Saudi Arabia and are doing everything for cash like non governmental organisations. Even the head of Muslim Cultural Affairs Department is helping these people to continue their nefarious activities. This matter must be bring forward to the country’s chief and a solution must be found urgently before it gets out of hand.

When moderate Sri Lankan Muslims speak out, the Wahabis say that they do not know anything of Islam. But when the Wahabis preach hatred and terror, they claim themselves to be scholars of Islam. One only has to look at the fitna the Wahabis have caused in Pakistan to understand their deranged mentality. The Wahabis have twisted Islam ad preach a dawa of murder and hate which is incompatible with our way of living. The Sri Lankan authorities must investigate every Wahabi related madrasa and imam to make sure they are not preaching things that are inimical to our motherland.

The Wahabis must understand that their reckless attitude and statements have only brought chaos among Muslims and other communities all around the .

    All Muslims believe ‘the Koran’ is the word of God and Muhammad is the last prophet of Allah or ‘the God’. So, what’s the problem? I think its a question of fundamentalist Muslims wanted to adhere to all the verses in the Koran, whereas those that call themselves moderates want to bypass some verses. I think the same is true about those that follow Christianity and Judaism, the original religion of ‘Allah or the God’. Its a culture as well as a religion – Semitism.
