    NOT QUITE ENOUGH, my dear Muslim Ministers!

    This is another eyewash by Muslimleaders DESPERATELY trying to PROTECT Sharia Law and DEFLECT a MORE COMPREHENSIVE revamping of Sri Lanka”s Marriage & Divorce Laws to ENSURE that ONE LAW applies to ALL CITIZENS!

    Before Muslims are entitled to field a candidate for the President of Sri Lanka, as a COMMUNITY they must demonstrate a committment to JOIN the OTHER LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS of Sri Lanka without demanding SPECIAL RIGHTS for themselves.

    To that end,

    1. Make Muslim Marriage and Divorce Act comply with the Marraige and Divorce laws of other ALL other citizens! Eliminate underage marraiges, require CONSENT, Eliminate MULTIPLE wives, Require LAWFUL divorces in the Sri Lankans courts under the same laws as other citizens; not merely intoning I Divorce Thee 3 times, Require fair and just DIVISION of marital assets upon Divorce or Death of husband.

    2. Ban Wahabi relipogion from Sri Lanka, Ban intolerant sermons at mosques and madrassas. Bring ALL Muslim schools under government supervision.

    3. Ban the imposition of Halal food standards on non-Muslim communities and the public’s food supply. If Muslims want, let them eat Halal foods, but leave non-Muslim communities alone!

    4. Ban Sharia Law from Sri Lanka. One ONE LAW, the Law of the Sri Lanka State, shoulod exist and apply in Sri Lanka.

    5. Ban Sharia lending: The same lending policies and practices should prevail throughout Sri Lanka, and they should be available and apply to ALL Sri Lankan citizens!

    6. Ban/Limit FREQUENT and LOUD CALLS to Prayer from the Mosques. Limit the building of Mosques in Sri Lanka

    7. Ban the practice of Muslim majority Muslim controlled towns and villages from preventing non-Muslim citizens from settling and engaging in business. No COMMUNAL local administrations should be allowed to exist in Sri Lanka. We want ONE NATION of ONE People under ONE system of Laws ENFORCED IMPARTIALLY!

    8. Ban intolerant Muslim Wahhabi preachers/teachers from coming to Sri Lanka.

    9 Bring the Sharia University in Batticaloa into the University of Sri Lanka system. Demolish/Moodify the Arab-Style buildings and landscaping to be compatible with Sri Lankan culture. Ban the Arabization of Sri Lanka by stealth!

    10. Ban ALL Foreign NGOs who act against the Sri Lankan heritage, indigenous religions, and national security. Send these BUGGERS HOME!

    Excellent and very bold move.

    No matter who does it, this must be commended by all patriots. Let’s not ask for more at this stage as this itself is far more than any government since the 1951 UNP government passed the MMDA to appease Muslim voters.

    Since then we had so many presidents and PMs but no one had the courage even to bring a bill to amend it!

    Hopefully the Cabinet and the parliament will approve these and the next regime will not go back on these.

    This is a time to shed feudal clan politics (“wahal maanasikathwaya”) and support this good move for the sake of the nation. Otherwise we can each blame the other while MMDA will continue to add more horrors for the country.

    How about multiple wives law ?

    However, something is better than nothing.

    What we really need is a law to limit 1 to 2 children to a family and these mussie marraige laws will disappear. They
    want to start baby production at the earliest time possible. Planet is severely overcrowded already and these
    mussies want to multiply like there is no tomorrow to steal the country by outnumbering Sinhalese and tamils.
    The dirty, disgusting, subhuman trick was used in old Buddhist iran, afganisthan, pakesthan, bangladesh, malaysia
    and indonesia to turn them all to mussie countries within a few hundred of mussie arrivals in those countries.

    Sri Lanka today is ruled by the biggest traitors in the history of the country and those deshapaluwas will do
    anything to hang on to power. The trick was tried recently in Buddhist Myanmar, and unfortunately for the mussies
    they had a patriotic leader (a woman) and got rid of them in double quick time and saved the country from
    becoming old Buddhist Myanmar.
