"Latheef Farook"

This book is about the never ending 'Hate- Muslim'

campaign unleashed by a small group of Sinhala racists
 who fortunately do not enjoy the support of the vast majority of
 Sinhalese in the country.



 The writer is concerned that this campaign, unless brought to a
 halt, is likely to lead to a total breakdown in communal
 harmony to the detriment of the country which has
 just  emerged from a devastating ethnic war.



 This campaign began around four years ago, coincidentally or
 otherwise, with the ever increasing Israeli presence in the
 island. Today the Muslim community has become the victim of
 not merely highly offensive hate speeches but also subjected
 to attacks on mosques, religious schools, halal food,
 women’s dress code,
 slaughtered pigs thrown into mosque, burning and urinating
 on Holy Quran, forcing Muslim students to kneel down and
 worship Sinhalese teachers, writing Allah’s name on
 pig’s face and the list
 continues.
 These disgusting acts
 threaten the Muslims who live in fear with an uncertain future.



 This book of 46 chapters covers burning issues from the endless
 sufferings of the LTTE evicted Jaffna Muslims, ferocious
 Tsunami waves which snuffed
 out  hundreds of thousands of lives and left behind an
 unprecedented trail of
 horror, destruction of Muslim shrine in Anuradhapura to 
 many more and the attacks on the Muslims of Aluthgama,
 Dharga Town and
 Beruwala.



 The Aluthgama carnage caused
 death and destruction besides crippling Muslim economy
 turning happy families overnight to depend on charity for
 survival. This shows that no lesson has been learnt and the
 authority has remained blind to these despicable
 crimes.



 In the aftermath of the defeat of the LTTE in May 2009, all
 expected the
 government to attend to minority grievances, remove fears
 of the majority and bring communities together to move ahead
 in unity for a better future
 for all.  Instead minorities appear to have been
 written off and overall Sinhalization has been
 underway in full swing.




 The question is whether this
 country battered by three decades long ethnic war due to
 racist politics could afford to take the very same battered
 path which has all the ingredients to cause communal
 conflicts and tear apart the
country.
