Sri Lanka: Muslim extremists exploit Rohingya media propaganda to spread hatred

Muslims are, in fact, the ones who lie about this situation caused by illegals trying to force entry into Myanmar. They pretend that the Rohingya are “natives” who have lived in the country for centuries. The native Muslims – who themselves illegally forced themselves on Myanmar in the 1940’s are still there. Myanmar is removing all the new infiltrates which they have all the right to do.

Isis have already admited two years ago that Qatar funded illegal mass immigration into Myanmar to commit jiad against Buddhists, trying to create violence and problems in a poor country which would give the Muslim a quick upper hand with Saudi and Qatari funding. But, according to Isis, the Myanmar military was too diligent protecting the nations borders that they failed to infiltrate the country. Over 3,500 jihadist had been shipped to Myanmar already in 2013 but did not manage to gain stable entry.

This mass-hijra, first experienced by Israel, is rapidly exploding all over the world in the enormous drive to create a singular Islamic state of the world. It is now rapidly spreading through Southeast Asia. There is now an entire military unit of terrorists recruited from Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore, according to Singapore’s prime minister.

The world refuses to wake up to this. The UN is now instead trying to force Myanmar to take in Muslims who belong in Bangladesh and Bengal and need to return to their countries. This is how the poorer nations turn Islamic within a few decades. They need to be given the freedom and right to rule their own country, and remove illegal trespassers, foreign infiltrators and terrorists without the world screaming at them.

Sri Lankan Muslim Extremists Exploit Rohingya Tragedy to Spread Hatred

by Fazeen Rasheed

Extremists within the Sri Lankan Muslim community are exploiting the tragedy of the Rohingya people to spread hatred towards Buddhists and Buddhism not only in Burma but in Sri Lanka as well.

The extent of this bigotry is clearly seen on Facebook where various Sri Lankan Muslim groups have been uploading racist as well as gruesome images which invariably garner extremely derogatory comments – mainly in the Tamil language – towards the Burmese and Sinhalese people.

In their content these racist Sri Lankan Muslim Facebook groups mirror the racist Sinhala Facebook groups that exist online; they appear to be two sides of the same coin. It was not long ago that Muslim politicians and the All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama (ACJU) were in up in arms over the racist Sinhala Facebook groups and urged the then government to ban them in order to prevent the spread of ethnic and religious hatred. However they are now maintaining a stoic silence when sections of the Muslims are doing exactly same thing.

As a Sri Lankan Muslim I am ashamed and disgusted at the way lies and rumours are being spread through Facebook posts by members of my community. Photos from the Tibetan earthquake in 2010, as well as from the masive fuel tank explosion in the Congo in 2010 that killed hundreds are being passed around as photos of “Muslims killed by Buddhists” along with emotional appeals.

Any practicing Muslim would clearly know that spreading rumours and lies is un-Islamic. Islam has a very high standard; news needs to be verified and not passed on as fact especially when the consequences are liable to be devastating. Islam has commanded Muslims not to pay attention to just any piece of news or information that comes to them and not to accept just anything that anyone says to them. In the Qur’an it is written:

O ye who believe! If a wicked person comes to you with any news, ascertain the truth, lest ye harm people unwittingly, and afterwards become full of repentance for what ye have done. (Al-Hujurat 49:6)

It is sad to see so many Sri Lankan Muslims deliberately ignoring Islamic teachings and descending into racism and bigotry in the name of “protecting” Muslims. Buddhists are called “dogs” and “snakes” and are to be killed. Other Sri Lankan Muslim extremists threaten to wage jihad and chase and slaughter the Burmese. Pictures of the Buddha are altered to deface and degrade. Is any of this Islam? It is certainly not the Islam that I know and practice.

There is no doubt that the Rohingya people are in dire straits and are fleeing terrible persecution in Burma. Many have been killed and left homeless. Thousands are suffering without aid or respite. But to exploit their tragedy to thump our chests and enflame emotions is not only self-defeating but causing tension in Sri Lanka just when the tension engendered previously was fading away. You don’t help anyone by sharing hateful posts.

It is pretty clear that there are extremists and religious bigots in all of the ethnic and religious groups in Sri Lanka. Unfortunately their influence seems to be more influential than that of the moderate majority. I see members of my own Sri Lankan Muslim community descending into hatred and bigotry not only towards other Muslims but towards the Jews, Hindus, Christians and now the Buddhists as well. This does not bode well for the future of our community and country.
May Allah (swt) guide us all on the straight path and prevent us from departing it!

  1. Have you ever considered unchaining yourself from the anchor of religion and doing something positive for the benefit of our pathetically benighted species?
