Mervyn removes cattle from Mosque premises, Def Sect intervenes

with 3 comments

Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa last night intervened to prevent what could have been an ugly incident coinciding with the Hajj celebrations by the Muslims.

Deputy Minister Mervyn Silva accompanied by  the OIC of  the Kiribathgoda police station and stormed the Mosque premises at  Akbar town Hunupitiya, Wattala and removed as many as 30 cattle which was meant for slaughter for the Hajj keeping with the rituals,  according Riaz Sally – the President of the Islamic Solidarity Fund.

He said that tension was high in the area last night after the respective owners of the cattle claimed they had paid the money and had only kept the cattle in the mosque premises as they did not place in their gardens to keep them. Mr. Silva had removed the cattle in a lorry

Mr. Sally said they complained to the Governor Western province  and  Mr. Azad Sally who was currently in Saudi Arabia. They had called the President and in turn the Defence Secretary had directed to release all the cattle.

“The forcible remove of  the cattle was a violation of the rights of the Muslim who usually perform this ritual. He said they were not violating a law and the cattle had been brought on a permit issued by the local authority”,  he said.-sundaytimes

  1. MERVYN,IS EXCEEDING HIS LIMITS. HE IS “BARKING” UP
    THE WRONG TREE. HE IS ATTEMPTING TO “BITE MORE THAN HE CAN CHEW”
    I HOPE THE PRESIDENT AND GOVERNMENT RESTRAIN HIM, IF NOT IT WILL BE PRESUMED THAT ALL HIS “DIRTY TRICKS”
    ARE PART OF GOVERNMENT POLICY, IMPLEMENTED IN A VERY SUBTLE MANNER.LET IT BE KNOWN WE MUSLIMS ARE NOT NAIVE,JUST BECAUSE THERE ARE ABOUT 18 “IMPOTENT” MUSLIM POLITICIANS WITH THE GOVERNMENT,WHO HAVE NO SPINES OR GUTS.THEY REPRESENT NOT THE MUSLIMS, ONLY THEMSELVES.THE TWO MUSLIM CONGRESSES ARE NOT REPRESENTING ANY MUSLIMS. THEY ARE JUST “OPPORTUNISTS” FROM THE TIME OF ITS FOUNDING

  2. பௌத்த மதம் பசு வதை பற்றி மட்டும் பேசவில்லை :மனித வதை ,பன்றி வதை ,மீன் வதை ,கோழி வதை ,என பொதுவாக ஜீவ காருண்யம் பற்றித் தான் பேசுகிறது மாட்டை காப்பாற்றும் ஜீவ காருண்ணிகள் பன்றியைப் பற்றி பேசாதிருப்பது தான் எனக்கு ஆச்சரியமாக இருக்கிறது !
