STOP ATTACKS ON MUSLIMS – DALAI LAMA TELLS LANKAN MONKS

The Dalai Lama has implored Buddhist monks in Myanmar and Sri Lanka to put an end to a series of recent attacks on Muslims in their countries. He said Buddhists, including monks, were responsible for recent violence against Muslims in Myanmar and Sri Lanka.

The Tibetan Buddhist spiritual leader spoke Tuesday night about religious violence when asked questions following a speech he delivered to 15,000 people at the University of Maryland. He condemned all killing being carried out in the name of religion and then turned to his own religion.

Myanmar has been wracked by sectarian violence that has displaced tens of thousands over the past year, while Sri Lankan Buddhist groups have recently attacked Muslim businesses, AP reports.

Sri Lanka signed the annual Haj agreement with the Kingdom on Sunday, allowing Colombo to send 2,800 pilgrims.

Speaking to Arab News following the signing ceremony, Sri Lankan Minister for Urban Affairs Abdul Hameed Mohamed Fowzie, who held talks with Haj Minister Bandar Hajjar, explained that this year Sri Lanka was given the same quota of pilgrims as last year because of the ongoing development works in the two holy cities of Makkah and Madinah.

 

Patriotism, loyalty and allegiance of Muslims to Mother Lanka Part: III

PoorBest 

by Dr Rifai

There is no doubt that Muslims have been loyal citizens of Srilanka throughout Srilankan history. They fought with Sinhalese to protect the Island from the onslaught of colonial powers. Dewaraja notes that “when the Portuguese first appeared off the shoes of Srilanka, the Muslims warned the kings, sangha, nobles and the people of the potential threat to the country’s sovereignty. When the Portuguese tried to gain a foothold in Colombo, the Muslims provided firearms, fought side by side with the Sinhalese and even used their influences with South Indian powers to get military assistance to Sinhalese rulers. Through the intervention of the Muslims, the Zamorin of Calicut sent three distinguished Moors of Cochin with forces to help Mayadunne”. P. 50). This illustrates Muslim people’s loyalty to this nation and they defended this land with their lives against any foreign invasions. Muslim people did their best to get all help and support from Muslim world to protect

Islamic culture and the challenge of Buddhist fundamentalism

April 30, 2013, 12:00 pm

World Literature: A Reader (Routledge, 2013) Editors: Prof. Cesar Domingues et al

Reviewed by Liyanage Amarakeerthi

When I heard about the Boston explosions I had many hopes. First, I hoped that my teacher, who is at Harvard, was safe. Second, I hoped no one was killed. Third, I hoped there was no any Muslim connection to the explosion. Finally, I hoped Boston, one of my favourite American cities, liberal, leftwing, cosmopolitan and intellectually bent, was not disrupted by any fundamentalist attacks, internal or external.

I found out soon enough that my teacher was safe. Sadly, some people died, including an eight-year old boy- someone from my son’s generation. America has its own fundamentalists. When it goes to war, America (Washington) itself is fundamentalist. International terrorism is a real problem and all fundamentalists are party to that terrorism. America’s not-so-democratic acts in the past also keep following like the cart behind the oxen as it has in a Dhammapada verse. In Sri Lanka too we have to be mindful of our collective Karma.

My third hope was much more Sri Lankan than personal. In Sri Lanka, Bodu Bala Sena (‘the army of Buddhist power’) – the newest and crudest version of Sinhala nationalism- is up against Sri Lankan Muslims, claiming that they are invading the social, cultural, economic spheres, pushing aside the Sinhala majority. I do not know the factual position. But the rhetoric seems to suggest something much more dangerous than the facts (even if they are correct) ever could. Some of the BBS (or of the populace attracted to the organization) accusations are really absurd: some Muslim-owned clothing store (a chain of shops in fact) is selling an incredible female underwear that makes Sinhala women barren. The argument is that this shop chain is part of a Muslim conspiracy to reduce the Sinhala population in the country.

Muslim Consultative Committee Established

A forum represented by several Muslim organizations and individuals, which will be an apolitical body, has been established as the Muslim Consultative Committee, states a release from the Muslim Council of Sri Lanka(MCSL).

The release adds: The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka (MCSL) convened a meeting of Muslim civil society members, religious leaders, businesspersons, academics and professionals with the objective of building consensus within the Muslim community and establishing a Muslim Consultative Committee. This Committee comprising of over 75 prominent members of the Muslim society will address short, medium and long-term interests of the community in Sri Lanka, particularly recognizing the need for a response to contemporary challenges faced by Sri Lankan Muslims, while promoting peaceful coexistence in the country.

MCSL president N.M. Ameen at the inaugural meeting of the Muslim Consultative Meeting, emphasized that while recognizing the need to meet challenges faced by Muslims in Sri Lanka the importance of interacting with all ethnic communities in the country to promote the Sri Lankan identity, while respecting diversity in multi - cultural Sri Lanka.

The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka is an umbrella organization comprising over fifty independent network organizations. It has been in the forefront in addressing issues of the Muslim community through advocacy and lobbying with the government, political and religious leaders to find amicable and sustainable solutions to challenges faced by the community, while promoting understanding and strengthening ties with all Sri Lankans.

Worries of Budu Bala Sena

By Dr Rifai.

Do we really need to respond to the provocations and hated campaigns of this tiny group of extremists in SriLanka? Much has been said and written about them in various news papers and TV broadcasting. It has been highlighted in recent media presentation and press release. Reading through what has been said and written about them I could notice that there are two schools of thought in our response to the provocations and activities of this group. One school of thought argues that BBS should be left on its own and we should not respond to their provocation and activities. It will meet its doom day naturally.

Company suspends employee who posted hate messages

WEDNESDAY, 24 APRIL 2013 03:39

An employee of a respected Sri Lankan company was suspended for a month after an inquiry found him guilty of sprouting racial hatred and sexually derogatory remarks on Facebook.

This is the first time in Lanka where a private sector company had taken action against an employee over his adverse conduct on a social media portal.

At the inquiry conducted by the Human Resources Department of a premier tourism company -- Eco Team (Pvt) Ltd., the employee was found guilty and suspended from work for a month, CEO Anuruddha Bandara said yesterday.

 

Wilders’ Colleague From Fitna to Islam

After abandoning his far-right party to embrace Islam, a former colleague of Dutch politician Geert Wilders has visited the holy lands in Saudi Arabia to perform his first `Umrah (lesser pilgrimage) in his life.

“If any person told me that I will visit the land of the two holy shrines, I would have told him that he must be insane,” Arnoud Van Doorn told Al-Madinah newspaper.

“Finding Islam is a dream came true,” a tearful Doorn added.


Doorn, a member of the far-right Freedom Party (PVV) has embraced Islam earlier this year after an extensive study into the religion.

He was among party leaders who helped produce an offensive film titled Fitna that linked Islam and the Qur’an to violence.

 

இஸ்லாமிய சமூகமும் ஷூரா என்ற பொறிமுறையும்

‘‘காரியங்களின் போது (நபியே) நீர் அவர்களிடம் ஆலோசனை கேட்பீராக (42:38) என்று அல்லாஹ் தனது தூதருக்கு கட்டளை பிறப்பிக்கின்றான். இந்த அல்குர்ஆன் வசனம் ஆலோசனைகளை (ஷூரா) செய்வதன் அவசியத்தை உணர்த்தப் போதுமானதாகும். நபி(ஸல்) அவர்கள் ஏதாவது ஒரு விடயத்தில் முடிவொன்றை எடுப்பதற்கு அல்லாஹ் அல்குர்ஆனின் வசனங்களை இறக்கி வழிகாட்டலாம். அதுவும் இல்லாத போது அவர்கள் அல்லாஹ்வின் உள்ளார்ந்த வழிகாட்டலின் பேரில் சுயமாக முடிவுகளை எடுக்கலாம். தனது தோழர்களின் அபிப்பிராயங்களைப் பெற வேண்டிய தேவை எதுவுமில்லை . அப்படியிருந்தும் தோழர்களிடம் ஆலோசனை செய்யுங்கள் என்ற கட்டளை நபி(ஸல்) அவர்களிடம் ஆலோசிக்கும் பண்பும் இருக்க வேண்டும் என்பதை வலியுறுத்துவதுடன் நபி(ஸல்) அவர்களுக்குப் பின்னால் வரும் தலைவர்களும் பொறுப்புக்களை வகிப்பவர்களும் நபி ஸல் அவர்களை முன்மாதிரியாகக் கொண்டு பிறரது கருத்துக்களை கேட்டறிந்து கொள்ள வேண்டும் என்பதை கட்டாயப்படுத்துகிறது.

வஹீயினால்மாத்திரம் தீர்மானிக்க முடியுமான விடயங்கள் உள்ளன. அவற்றில் ஷூரா செய்ய முடியாது. ஆனால் மனித சிந்தனைக்கு சுதந்திரம் வழங்கப்பட்டுள்ள இஜ்திஹாதுக்கு உட்பட்ட விடயங்களில் ஆலோசனை பெறவும் வழங்கவும் முடியும்.

 

Who is the Holy Prophet Muhammad? (PBUH). Part 1

User Rating: / 7
PoorBest 

By Dr RIFAI (NALEEMI) UK

I really advise our readers to read this series entirely before they come to some hasty conclusions. An attempt has been made here to illustrate the biographical account of the Prophet Muhammad a precise and succinct way so that our Non-Muslim readers could enhance their knowledge about the prophet Muhammad without any bias or prejudice

In this series I shall try to introduce the biography of the prophet Muhammad to our Non-Muslim readership. Most of the Non-Muslim people have got wrong perceptions about the life and accomplishment of the prophet Muhammad.   In some cases we can not blame them all for this misperception. This is because they have come to know the biographical account of the prophet Muhammad through the writing of some bias writers toward Islam and Muslims.  Today, misperceptions about Islam and its prophet are wide spread in all formats: Since Prophet Muhammad received his prophethood from Almighty Allah in the cave Hira the antagonism and accusation toward his message began. It is not a new social phenomenon that Islam and Muslims encounter problems and challenges when Muslims reach out with the message of Islam to any Non- Muslim community today, yet, it is importance to know how to face some of these challenges and problems and how to repulse some of these accusations.
