The Muslim Council deplores Al-Qaeda announcement
Posted on September 5th, 2014


The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka is very concerned about news reports that Al-Qaeda is setting up its South Asia front. Earlier, the violent terrorist group IS announced that it is targeting the Indian sub-continent.

We have witnessed the terror and destruction that have been caused to our partners in SAARC, Afghanistan and Pakistan by the Al-Qaeda, and the destruction the Islamic State (IS) is causing to world peace.  Therefore the presence of such violent groups should not be allowed at any cost in Sri Lanka or any of our neighbor countries.

Sri Lanka has experienced the cost of terror during the 30-year violent ethnic conflict that caused immense damage to the lives and the economy of our country. As we begin our recovery from this setback and lost opportunities, there should be no space for any form of extremism or terrorism in our nation.

While we assure all Sri Lankans that the Muslim community would ensure extreme vigilance for any possible infiltration by Muslim terrorists from outside the country, we call upon the Authorities to ensure that they too are vigilant and take every step to thwart any form of infiltration in to Sri Lanka by any extremist/terrorist group of any religious or ideological belief.

We appreciate the numerous statements issued by the Secretary of Defense, Mr. Gotabaya Rajapaksa that there is no evidence of any form of Islamic terror in Sri Lanka.

While appreciating the Government’s reconstruction, reconciliation and development activities after a protracted war, we call upon the President, His Excellency, Mahinda Rajapaksa, the Defense Secretary, Gotabaya Rajapaksa and the Government to address the Buddhist extremism and hate campaign that has manifested itself in the recent past which is of deep concern to the minorities in Sri Lanka.

    The problem is NOT Buddhist extremism. The problem is ISLAM TERRORISM.

    Just read world news. Who is threatening world peace? Jews? NO. Buddhists? NO. Hindus? NO. Christians? NO. It is MUSLIMS.

    The threat to peace in SL comes from ISLAM.

    SL is NOT alone. The WHOLE WORLD now knows Islam = terrorism. Lets be frank here because people’s lives are at risk.

    Koran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”

    A Muslim EXTREMIST in the Pakistan cricket team! This is not the first time this loser targeted Dilshan. The idiot must understand Dilshan’s religion is Dilshan’s business. Leave him alone fool.

    Pakistan batsman Ahmed Shehzad faces disciplinary action for religious comments he made to Sri Lanka’s Tillakaratne Dilshan after Saturday’s one-day international in Dambulla.

    Shehzad was shown in footage, telling Dilshan: “If you are a non-Muslim and you turn Muslim, no matter whatever you do in your life, straight to heaven.”

    Following Dilshan’s inaudible reply, he added: “Then be ready for the fire.”

    Pakistan internationals are banned from making religious or political comments.

    Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Shaharyar Khan said: “There is a clause which states clearly players should not indulge in talk of religious or political nature in public while representing Pakistan.

    “Shehzad has violated this clause on evidence of what we have seen in the video footage of the incident.”

    And last December he was fined half his match fee for pushing Dilshan during a one-day international between Pakistan and Sri Lanka in Abu Dhabi.

    Loranzo, first of all, let us want to know, this Muslim Council represents whole Muslims in Sri Lanka. What happened ACJU – JI Etc.. These are all man made councils – come and go.

    Why this Muslim Council so stupid ?

    Let me explain what is “Buddhist extremism” or in other words when principles of Buddhism ( for example “not harminh ANY living being) is followed to the extreme limits. Let me take it direct from the words of Buddha.

    “Monks, even if bandits were to carve you up savagely, limb by limb, with a two-handled saw, he among you who let his heart get angered even at that would not be doing my bidding. Even then you should train yourselves: ‘Our minds will be unaffected and we will say no evil words. We will remain sympathetic, with a mind of good will, and with no inner hate. We will keep pervading these people with an awareness imbued with good will and, beginning with them, we will keep pervading the all-encompassing world with an awareness imbued with good will — abundant, expansive, immeasurable, free from hostility, free from ill will.’ That’s how you should train yourselves.”

    In Islam, it is different. Quoting from Sheik Ahmed Shzaad “If you are a non-Muslim and you turn Muslim, no matter whatever you do in your life, straight to heaven.” . Remember “no matter whatever you do in your life” is the key.

    So what the MUSLIMS should do is go and find these EXTREMIST BUDDHISTS and start cutting the limbs one by one.
    Because they are EXTREME BUDDHISTS they will remain sympathetic, with a mind of good will, and with no inner hate.

    So, foolish Islamic Council should not write these nonsense. Just start cutting limbs of extreme Buddhists , as Allah told tem in Quran. They will go straight to heaven. It is a good service to Extreme Buddhist to practice Buddhism to the Extreme, they will surely attain supreme goal of Nibbaana.

    Foolish Council should be more worried about “moderate Buddhist”.
    Don’t try their patience. Don’t try to beat them up or try to squeeze the genitals of their children.
    If you do that Sinhala Buddhist Police will shot you dead.

    Why these fools have no brains to understand what is Extreme Buddhism and Moderate Buddhism. It is so simple to understand.

    1. Extreme Buddhist will follow Buddha to the extreme.
    2. Extreme Muslims will follow Quran to the extreme.

    Just learn not to discriminate other religions. If you think there is something wrong here, logically, you do have a brain.

  6. Mr. Bernard Wijeyasingha Says:

    Many Muslim councils have come out and condemned ISIS but not the average Muslim. No mass protests have been seen in any Muslim nation or in any non Muslim nation. The Muslims in France alone are 20% of that nation’s population and none have protested.

    Same can be said across the world. That also includes no protests from the Christian world since so many Christians have been forced to convert, executed and many churches destroyed. Only silence across the entire Christian and Muslim world.

    Strangely in Denmark recently in a protest by minorities mainly of Muslim extraction against unemployment many ISIS flags were seen in that group. So one could conclude that even when there are protests of any kind by the Muslims especially in non Muslim nations now the ISIS flag is part of that protest.

    All the condemnations and holier than thou sermons amount to absolutely nothing when the world of Islam silently approves the action of ISIS.

  7. Lorenzo Says:

    Nesta, you are right.

    But this satanic verse stands.

    Koran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”

    ISIS is closer to Islam than Muslim Council.
