Malaysia pushed to vote against SL

Suaram is pushing for Malaysia to vote in favour of a resolution against Sri Lanka at the United Nations Human Rights Council meeting because of worsening human rights conditions and attacks on mosques.

The meeting will take place in Geneva on March  22

“Malaysia can’t turn a blind eye to this. We have a vote at the UN Human Rights Council and we must vote in favour of a resolution against Sri Lanka,” said Suaram chairman K. Arumugam in a press statement today.

The Sri Lanka Army had been involved in a civil war with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) since 1983 until 2009 when the LTTE was defeated.  Over 100,000 civilians mostly from the Tamil ethnic minority died during the conflict. Civilians still live in camps even though a reconciliation plan was announced by the government.

UN Human Rights Council’s latest report last month stated that Sri Lanka has a poor record in reconciliation efforts, accountability and ongoing human rights violations.

Arumugam also said that Malaysia should vote for the resolution against Sri Lanka due to increasing attacks on  mosques .

“After the Tamils, the Muslims are now the new targets of attack in Sri Lanka. Malaysia can’t be seen to support a country where Muslims are facing such a situation,” said Arumugam.

Since the UN resolution last year there have been at least eight attacks on mosques and countless protests organised by  Buddhist organisations.

Malaysia, Sri Lanka’s largest trading partner, chose to abstain from voting on a resolution against Sri Lanka last year despite protests held by Indians in Malaysia in support of the resolution.(FMT)

    This is enough proof BBS is anti-Sri Lanka, demonizing the halal certification which has been around for 12 years at the most critical time.

    Naushard Sunday, 10 March 2013 03:51 AM

    very valid point......

    UnitedWeStand Saturday, 09 March 2013 11:10 AM

    India is not facing a trial in UNHCH, but Srilanka. Unfortunately, Srilanka is on the verge of loosing all the trump cards even of the Muslim country votes. Sad state of Affairs.

    Attacks on mosques? Where did that come from? Its time people first find out the true facts before interfering where they're not wanted.

    Dear All,

    Its indeed sad to see that the racism has already started to burn the peaceful living environment in Srilanka. The communities which were living for hundreds of years peacefully is now sharing bitter comments on one another. All what i have to say is if another country campaigns against our country No matter what is their major religion we should consider them as our enemies coz enemy of our mother srilanka is enemy of all the citizens of srilanka doesn't matter whether you are budhist, hindhu, muslim or cristian.
    First of all i am a srilankan and i am proud to be a srilankan. i don't want to mention my religion coz i don't see a reason to mention it. We have responsibilities as srilankans and that is to wipe the mud which others are throwing at us. We have to leave a better country for our children to live, let us not let them suffer what we have suffered.
    God bless srilanka and god bless all of us.

    Fairose Saturday, 09 March 2013 11:36 AM

    Without Muslims - Sinhalese were living with "amude" - Only muslims brought them dresses.

    we are a multi cultural community! rasicm is a virus that spreaded by enemies & arms dealers using local leaders! thanks to BBS this time Muslim countries are against us. via DM Android App

    Fairose Saturday, 09 March 2013 11:39 AM

    Muslims paid that price for showing loyalty to the unity of the country. Had muslims chose go with the tamil demand - Sri lanka would have been two countries by this time. Wake you idiots.

    Fairose Saturday, 09 March 2013 11:46 AM

    Dont ever try this with muslims because we are people ready to die for a good cause.

    Muslim Saturday, 09 March 2013 08:47 AM

    At the end of the day ..only Muslims will save this country....

    No big deal.

    We have won a 30 year war and winning this resolution is peanuts.

    kingasanga Saturday, 09 March 2013 08:59 AM

    Arumugam, you better tell this story to the India regarding the way those people think & treat Muslims on Indian soil.

    Senaka Saturday, 09 March 2013 09:11 AM

    We don't care of this resolution. We Sri Lankans can stand on our own feet without tamils and muslims.

    Shan Saturday, 09 March 2013 09:14 AM

    This is what BBS exactly wanted to achieve, They wanted to bring more countries voting against our country. The timings of BBS is super.

    SH Sunday, 10 March 2013 01:06 PM

    If we all take history in to consideration, other countries always tried to divide us on all possible ways at all possible times. THIS IS THEIR TRICK TO gain superiority over other countries. The west. want ed to divide us for centuries. Hence the party sytems introduced. They divided india n Pakistan to maintain instability in the region . India wants us to be divided for regional superiority. When. we fight they will always support the weak side to keep the fire burning. Remember brothers! UNITED WE RISE, DEVIDED WE FALL!

    Hello Kingasanga ! In India Muslims can become President.
    Largely majority Hindus, Muslims, Christians are living like brothers. Muslims are not called by nick names by your people.
