Muslims being attacked in Grand Pass, Grandpass is a haven for the Muslims. Any sinhalaese found there are most catholics. Buddhists if they attacked the muslims then they would have been brought from outside and if so who brought them there. The govermnet aftre the Weliweriya incident wants to make that the army duties are honorable more so after the Weliweriya incident. In either case the Persident by virtue of him being the Commander in Chief should be held responsible for any breach of Peace and any action agains unarmed civilians.
These are Demands of the majority Muslims of Sri Lanka following the attack on a mosque by a mob led by Buddhist Monks.
1) Ensure the safety of All Mosques (Masjids) all over Sri Lanka and also the Safety of Muslim women to wear the ‘Burqa’ and ‘Abaya’ and also to practice their religion as they were doing since last thousand years.
2) Arrests all who are involved in the attack including the monks and bring them under spotlight and grant them maximum punishment to avoid another attack.
2) Find out why the police turned a blind eye when the attack was taking place eventhough about 60 police were present while the attack was taking place and give the culprits the maximum punishment as this have happened so often, for instance when a mob was destroying a muslim shrine in Anuradhapura the police present there did not take any action to bring the situation under control, the consistent failiure of the police to ensure the safety of muslims creats a big doubt wheather these attacks have the patronage of the Government.
3) Ban hate speech, specially extremist nationlist groups like Bodu Bala Sena, Sinhala Ravaya spread rumours about muslims and their practises and criticing thier belief even while addressing public gatherings, eventhough there are enough of evidence to prove this nobody has taken action to prevent it and these hate speeches has played a man role in motivating the sinhalese buddhist to attack innocent muslims.
If these demands are fullfilled it can avoid a major clash between Buddhist and Muslims which will take the country into another dark era much worse than the war which lasted for nearly three decades. Lets hope the Law will be enforced and wrong doers will get the right punishment
