Muslim Council writes to Rev. Gnanasara Thero
Posted on April 28th, 2014

N.M. Ameen President, The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka

APRIL 23rd 2014
Rev. Galabode Aththe Gnanasara Thero
Secretary General,
Bodu Bala Sena
Sri Lanka

Rev. Gnanasara Thero,

I wish to bring to your attention that the Muslim Council of Sri Lanka has had no engagement or receive financial support from the Embassy of the
United States or any agency affiliated to the United States of America or any other country as stated by you at the your press conference of April 22nd
2014. I wish to remind you that the Bodu Bala Sena remains charged for receiving financial support from Norway through Mr Arne Fjortoft and your
Chief Executive Officer, Mr Dilanthe Withanage, which you have not denied.

The Muslim Council operates through voluntary contributions of its own members in Sri Lanka and its steering committee. I challenge you to prove
that the Muslim Council has received any financial support from USA or any other. If you have any evidence, please place them before us or produce them to the relevant authorities. It is unethical to target individual members of the Muslim Council and their families to gain media attention for your nefarious causes, which is destroying the immense respect Sri Lanka has, as a Buddhist nation.

The hate campaign spearheaded by you and other Buddhist priests against minority communities is contrary to the principles espoused by the noble
Gautama Buddha and Buddhism. Your continued accusations against Islam and Muslims are destroying the image of Buddhism and the peace and harmony that has existed between our communities for centuries.

As you are aware the Muslim Council of Sri Lanka represent Muslim Civil Society across the country. It is our desire to discuss and solve any issues that confront by discussion amongst us. Please feel free to contact me, should you have any queries about the Muslim Council or any other issue you may have with the Muslim community.

Yours sincerely
N.M. Ameen
The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka

    Since the war and due to the war everything has changed. Muslims can no long or should be allowed to claim their right to convert non Muslims. The very fact that the number of Muslims has dramatically increased in a Buddhist nation like Sri Lanka is an existential threat.
    To these Muslims this question should be posed: Can any Buddhist Sanga go to a Muslim nation, any Muslim nation and convert Muslims to Buddhism? If the answer is no then why are the Muslims allowed this special status in Sri Lanka?

  2. Lorenzo Says:

    FAIR statement. Thank you LW for publishing it.

    “It is unethical to target individual members of the Muslim Council and their families to gain media attention for your nefarious causes, which is destroying the immense respect Sri Lanka has, as a Buddhist nation.”

    ACCEPTANCE of SL as a Buddhist nation is the FIRST thing we need to settle these disputes AMICABLY.

    I hope the MC will NOT play word games with the above statement.

    GOOD move if they meant it.

    Now the ball is in the BBS court to show respect and stop VIOLENCE.

    Violence is ONLY acceptable against threats to UNITARY SL. NO OTHER thing justifies violence. BBS MUST stop violence.

    Other good things of BBS should go ahead WITHOUT violence, threats, mosque, etc. attacks, burning mosques and other dirty tactics.

  3. Lorenzo Says:


    A GOOD initiative is made by the MC in calling SL a Buddhist nation. We should BUILD UPON it. Right or wrong SL flag has a stripe for ISLAM. That should be respected. NOTHING MORE NOTHING LESS.

    We cannot fall into the LOW level of those heart eating barbaric countries governed by a medieval law and restrict other faiths.

    As a SINHELA BUDDHIST UNITARY nation SL allows freedom to all to practice their faiths in peace. As long as that is respected and accepted, I have no problem even with a satanic cult (if they keep it peaceful without disturbing others).

    “The hate campaign spearheaded by you and other Buddhist priests against minority communities is contrary to the principles espoused by the noble Gautama Buddha and Buddhism.”

    – What nonsense ? Firstly, do they agree to “principles espoused by the noble Gautama Buddha” ?
    These buggers always quote this so that easy for them to wipe out Buddhism.

    After accepting Sri Lanka as a Buddhist Nation, are the Muslims and Christians of Sri Lanka agree not to kill animals, if all others agree ?

  5. Lorenzo Says:


    Lets give them a CHANCE.

    Our DEAR LEADER (as some blind supporters always believe) is in Bahrain to get some cash and thank them for UNHRC. So lets have some hope.

    As long as they agree to SL being a SINHELA BUDDHIST UNITARY nation, I don’t think they will try to wipe out Buddhism.

    IF buddhism is wiped out then there is NO HOPE for Hindus, Christians and Muslims in SL!!

    Look at HINDUSTAN how they whack the Muslims. A Muslim killer is going to be Hindustan’s MOST POPULAR PM ever!! Look at Islamic Pakistan. Hindus and Christians blown to pieaces everyday. They can’t live in their countries and come to SL.

    e.g. It is like a zoo without closed cages and NO HUMANS. Animals will kill each other and die off.

  6. Ancient Sinhalaya Says:


    Let’s give them a chance.
    Only insance people will believe this lot. They will accept Sri Lanka is a Buddhist country,
    and everything they want to do, will do knowing within a short time the menace will OUTNUMBER
    THE SINHALESE AND TAMILS. Accepting Sri Lanka as Buddhist country does cost them anything.
    It is only verbal. The fools will believe. Ah it’s all ok now. They won’t breed like hell, no halal, no eyesore
    mosques in every corner, no abortion pills for Sinhalese and Tamils etc. etc.

    What they did in afganisthan,
    pakisthan. bangladesh. etc. etc. they repeating in Sri Lanka.
    As you rightly said rishad has found an easy solution for this menace to get free land.
    Encroach on government land, with enough numbers of course (never short due
    to multiplying), MR will quickly provide FREE land. FOR MOSSIES AND TAMILS ONLY.
    Sinhalese who voted this traitors into power? languish in camps. Forever.

  7. Lorenzo Says:


    I KNOW!

    It is like training a dog. Encourage the dog whenever it does the right thing. Even a small gesture.

    UNFORTUNATELY we have to live with them. They will NOT disappear which is damn unfortunate!

    We need SOME of them with us both local and foreign. When that Moda Modi comes Tamilians will be AUTONOMY ON STEROIDS (as they say in Israel). We cannot fight all the MFs at the same time. We have to be selective.

    I thought and thought about the IDEAL SOLUTION. But it is beyond our reach AT THIS STAGE. Until then…..

  8. HanMg Says:

    This is a typical case of muslims practicing deceit as taught in Koran – namely TAQIYYA (to lie to protect one’s self from persecution, emotional harm or physical harm, real or perceived) and KITMAN (to spread misinformation – especially to benefit Islam and to aid its spread). The Qur’an openly states many times that Allah is the “best deceiver”. Taqiyya is employed in disguising one’s beliefs, intentions, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions or strategies.

    Non-muslims seeking dialogue and inter-faith activities with Muslims should be aware of taqiyya and its modes. Since all Muslims anywhere must engage in jihad THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS MODERATE ISLAM. Making non-Muslims think that there are moderate Muslims is the ultimate taqiyah. Taqiyah is what Muslims do to keep non-Muslims in the sedated state. Non-Muslims are not even aware that they are under attack. Falling into this trap is deadly. It may cost your liberty and your life.

    ONE CANNOT TAKE A MUSLIM ON HIS OATH: In Sahih Bukhari we find narrations telling us Prophet Muhammad had said if he took an oath and later found something else better, he would do “what is better” and expiate his oath. Since determining what is “better” is a very subjective evaluation, one can break any agreement with anyone at any time they choose to do so just based on one’s perception of what is “better”.

    If jihad is perpetual, it means (according to Islamic theology) Muslims are always in a state of war. If Muslims are always in a state of war, it means deception is always permitted, regardless of the absence of any visible war against non-Muslims.

  9. Mr. Bernard Wijeyasingha Says:

    Before the modern days Sri Lankan flag, Sri Lanka was known by her people and the ancient world as Buddhist nation. To give them a chance you better look at present day Great Britain. Through the liberal use of secularism Great Britain is a mess, even recognized by conservative talks show hosts in the US. Islam is now a religion that is a greater threat to the traditions of Europe than Judaism ever was as claimed by the Nazi’s. Google Islam in Italy and maybe you would find an article of one of Europe’s largest Mosques now at the very shadow of the Vatican.

    What is really “barbaric” is to watch one’s own culture and civilization be murdered by foreign elements. To give support and solace to those foreign elements to take down the Buddhist traditions of Sri Lanka. As you well know Sri Lanka has faced such barbaric actions both from the Hindu South Indian invasions and the Colonial European empires. Now it is an internal affair. You got to know this simple fact: when I lived in Colombo during the 1960’s as a boy going to St. Peters College there was ONE Mosque that I knew of. When I returned in 2009, there was a Hindu temple to a Mosque built on every other block in Colombo.

    When I went up to Nuwara Elliya the town I was born, the christian bells were silenced by the call to prayer by Mosques in that valley town. On the way I saw the Sinhalese female students come out of a Madrassa wearing head scarves. Between Christianity’s conversions, Islams radical elements also converting and the 30 year long war against Hindu Tamils to tear the nation apart it is over due for Buddhism to reverse this process or face the same cultural decay now prevalent in Europe.

  10. Lorenzo Says:


    That is common knowledge. Mossies and mosques are BREEDING like rats.

    What are we going to save SL from them?

    Our options are very limited at this stage. I’m sure you agree.

    This is NOT the time for that anyway. We have to wait for a better opportunity. Tamil racist dirt, UNHRC, LTTE, TNA, LTTE RUMP, MODI, USA, etc. are all against SL now. If we take any action against these rat breeders now, we will be isolated. We also need some of them in our side to tackle them.

    The small good gesture of the MC should be appreciated. I don’t think there is ANY OTHER MUSLIM thing in the country that has made that FACTUAL STATEMENT. We can’t fight on 4 fronts (Tamil, Endia, USA-EU and Jihad). We have to pick the battles OPPORTUNISTICALLY.

  11. HanMg Says:

    Statements by MC such as “The hate campaign spearheaded by you and …….between our communities for centuries.” are tantamount to a call for unilaterally disarmament of Buddhists in SL. Historically, muslims have been very good at such jihadi deceit tactics known as TAQIYYA and KITMAN. This is the second stage of jihad: to conceal the truth about political Islam and vigorously defend it while pretending to be peaceful. Instead, it is the hate filled Islamic “holy books“ that need to be rid of to secure any peace for SL .

    The core of Islam—namely the Qur’an, Hadis and Sharia—is filled with unbounded hatred of the unbelievers, unbelievably intolerant toward them, and extremely cruel and merciless to those Muslims, who dare to deviate from its doctrines.

    Islam devotes a great amount of energy to the kafir (non believers). Not only is the majority (64%) of the Koran devoted to the kafir, but also nearly all of the Sira (81%) deals with Mohammed’s struggle with them. The Hadith (Traditions) devotes 32% of the text to kafirs.
    The following are just a sample of a few verses from Koran:
    9.5 “When opportunity arises, kill the infidels (non believers of Islam) wherever you catch them.”
    9.5-6: ” Kill those who join other gods with God wherever you may find
    4.76: “Those who believe fight in the cause of God.”
    8.12: “I will instill terror into the hearts of the Infidels, strike off their heads then, and strike off from them every fingertip,”
    8.39-42: “Say to the Infidels: If they desist from their unbelief, what is now past shall be forgiven them; but if they return to it, they have already before them the doom of the ancients! Fight then against them till strife be at an end, and the religion be all of it God’s.”
    2.256: “But they who believe, and who fly their country, and fight in the cause of God may hope for God’s mercy: and God is Gracious, Merciful.”
    It is a grave sin for a Muslim to shirk the battle against the unbelievers— those who do will roast in hell.
    8.15, 16: “Believers, when you meet the unbelievers preparing for battle do not turn your backs to them. [Anyone who does] shall incur the wrath of God and hell shall be his home: an evil dwelling indeed.”
    9.39: “If you do not fight, He will punish you severely, and put others in your place.”
    Those who die fighting for the only true religion, Islam, will be amply rewarded in the life to come.
    4.74: “Let those fight in the cause of God who barter the life of this world for that which is to come; for whoever fights on God’s path, whether he is killed or triumphs, We will give him a handsome reward.”

    It is abundantly clear from many of the above verses that the Koran is not talking of metaphorical battles or of moral crusades: it is talking of the battlefield. To read such blood thirsty injunctions in a “holy book” is shocking.

    Here are the things we would have to do to stop the Islamization:

    1. Stop cultural relativism. SL is a Buddhist country.
    2. Stop pretending that Islam is a religion. Islam is a totalitarian ideology. In other words, the right to religious freedom should not apply to Islam. “Death for Apostasy” 4:89, Sahih Bukhari
    3. Start family planning and marriage laws. (Note: Islamic law does not allow marriage outside of its own. This should be against the constitution of SL)
    4. Stop the building of new mosques. Close all Islamic schools, for they are fascist institutions and young children should not be educated an ideology of hate and violence.
    5. Get rid of the current weak leaders. We have the privilege of living in a democracy. Let’s use that privilege and exchange cowards for heroes. We need more Churchills and less Chamberlains.
    6. Everyone should learn about the Islamic ideology. Read the Quran or better yet read the book “Why I am Not a Muslim” by Ibn Warraq available for download at the link below:

    In short, we have to go on the offensive and start fighting back. We must no longer allow ourselves to remain seated in our armchairs and get trampled over.

    Finally, let me quote from author Craig Winn “..for the plight of Muslims. I want nothing more than to free them from Islam, and in so doing, free us from the terror their doctrine inspires…”

  12. Nesta Says:

    This NM Ameen tries to become a type of Head to the Muslims IN SL. Where is ACJU. ALL CEYLON JAMATHUL ULAMA – You know, there are so many muslim organizations like this. But they cannot to bring SL MUSLIMS UNDER ONE UMBRELLA. There are leaders in Muslims SL, they have different of opinions among themselves. This is the weakness which others use as their weapons to suppress Muslims in various forms.

  13. Lorenzo Says:


    These people are better to deal with than so called Muslim leaders.

    When there is a fire try to be the water, not petrol. Otherwise you too will end up in Nanthikadal lagoon.

    ACJU was PART of the HALAL controversy. So how can they resolve this problem?

  14. Ancient Sinhalaya Says:

    Everyone is saying conversion, conversion.
    It is multiplying, multiplying, multiplying.
    If nobody going to believe in something, just clone yourself, clone, clone
    you will have enough believers. This is what is happening in the world today.
    Child molester started this madness (his last wife, ayesha, was only 9 years old).
    Now spreading like hell through multiplying.
    With multiplying you get enough votes of course these days. They are a solid voter base.
    Win, win situation. Get in to the goverment. Control it. Thanks to UnPatriotic Party, JVP, etc etc.
    Sinhalese are divided. Then you have Traitors National Alliance (TNA) asking for Sinhalese blood
    (since they lost their ancient kingdom of mala (eelam) which nobody has ever seen a brick from its
    remains). Ideal environment for mossies to breed and breed. That’s how they converted old afganisthan, iran,
    bangladesh, maldives, malaysia, indonesia from Buddhists to mossies in a few hundred years.
    Breed, breed, breed and outnumber!
    Thanks to traitor diaspora MR had to seek the support of mossie countries to survive Geneva terror attack.
    Now he is returning the favour to mossies in Sri Lanka.
