 Buddhist monk who stayed back to protect Muslims when Menikhena mosque was to be set on fire


Buddhist monk who stayed back to protect Muslims when Menikhena mosque was to be set on fire

This is racialism that is flaring up. It is this senseless racialism that set fire to Tamil shops and it was Prabhakaran who created a war which ran to 3 decades. Both Sinhala and Muslim people who are ignorant of lessons taught in history and are trying to display national patriotism at a moment like this should realise that it is the future of their
own offspring that they cast into darkness.

Police have mentioned that they have fired at the skies last evening in order to control a group of people of Menikhinna who behaved in an aggressive manner even at the time police curfew was enforced on Kandy administrative district. It was understood that about 400 individuals had last night behaved in an aggressive way and in the process had even attempted setting fire to the Muslim mosque. It was a noticeable feature that among residents of the village there had also been those connected to security forces as well. According to emergency law and under the common law shots had to be fired at the skies in order to control the crowd and because this crowd too reacted by counter attacking, 3 police officers were wounded in the process, police media spokesman, Superintendent of police, Ruwan Gunasekera has stated. The injured policemen were admitted to Menikhinna Hospital. Of the 4 persons arrested in this connection, 3 of them were attached to the security sector, it is reported.

Whatever it is, what is reported in the process is that a monk and another set of people have spent the night inside the mosque. The said monk has tried his best to bring calm upon the Sinhala Buddhist crowd by understanding properly this flame of racialism. The monk has said that Sinhala and Muslim people have on a more or less scale so far had lived in good rapport with each other in each of those areas without any racial discrimination as such while an outside crowd has created this conflict when the villagers were watching saying that it is on behalf of the person who died and thus founding it on the lorry - three wheeler fracas, the monk has said finally. It was later reported that once setting fire to mosques commences, an attempt to set fire to temples too was observed and therefore it appears that there is no stop to this unlucky wave of antagonism.
