Harthal in the East

E-mail Print
Muslims in the East are currently engaged in a harthal campaign against the inflammatory video that has sparked an uproar throughout the world.

Our reporter said that residents of Samanthurai, Kalmunai, Nindavur and Nachchimadu are currently participating in the protest, burning tires and effigies of the US President.

However, no Police presence was visible at the locations of protest.

Idiots, why burn effigies of Obama. He had nothing to do with this. Who care let these idiots burn what ever they want. This is the most set of deluded people in the world.

Hal, I agree that many muslims are reacting in a very wrong way over this film all around the world. But such reactions are coming from a small sub-section of the total muslim population of the world. Even in Sri Lanka the number of muslims participating in these activities would be less than 2% of the total muslims in the country. Therefore, please do not try to show your hatred in your comments and include the whole community.If you are intelligent enough to analyse a problem you will choose your words carefully

Go and try to educate your muslim community. We have every right to criticize islam and the muslim prophet. And we have every right to criticize the deluded followers of islam, you know the people who protest over a low-budget movie and do not protest when ancient statues are demolished or people are beheaded in the name of their religion. Sshhhh! Tolerance!!

Well Sleaze, you certainly have the right to criticize anything. Constructive criticism is not insulting and feeling happy. By the way demolision of ancient statues was done by a small
uneducated group of negligible number and this group and their actions are totally denounced by every right thinking muslim.

Wonder whether most of the moslims know why exactly they are protesting?? It is upto God to bring judgement upon the wrong doers none of us are perfect.

I saw the clip myself and it is really insulting the prophet and Islam. Will the Buddhist tolerate if any one does the same to Lord Buddha?

You protested when Lord Buddha's image was use to sell a product, when a tourist kissed on the cheek of a Buddha statue. Muslims respect your feelings for Lord Buddha. Why not you have the same feeling for the religions of the Muslims and their Prophet?

Ridiculous! non of this makes sense anymore. Even if the video is offensive (Although I found it to be purely 'Stupid' and a cheap piece of nonsense) I don't see why we need to have harthal in SL. Plus, the video was uploaded by a certain individual. In a democratic society freedom of speech is pivotal no matter how it may offend another person's view point. I think it's time people realize this and try not to over react in the name of "Islam".

Then according to your though process uploading a video of your mother naked and having sex with the guy next door is ok with you... You will then keep your mouth shut and say "That's freedom of speech"....

A line should be drawn here... There is a limit for everything!!!

Why do Muslims always react like this after attending friday mosque? Are they incited and goaded on by their Mullahs?

Christians pray on Sunday. But they don't riot, burn and kill. muslims burn riot, rape and kill on Fridays. Big difference between the two religions!

An extremely unnecessary and unislamic act of Muslims to give popuarity to a low-budget insulting film. Protests and harthals are unislamic way of dealing with such issues. Muslims can hold public lectures and distribute reading materials to increase awareness of the fact.

Buddha image and picture is used in bars, ladies underware, slippers etc,. who cares, you cant stop it. To Buddhist, the image is impregnant in the mind. no body can harm that image- thats dhamma way to react- muslims must learn it

There have been insults to other religions as well, at various times through cheap books, paintings, films etc. Why is it that when it happens to Islam that there is such mass rabid & fanatical reaction by many misguided elements of the religion. The truth and honour of the teachings of a religion can never be degraded in anyway.

Why are the muslims getting their knickers in a twist - one lunatic in the US makes an offensive video and that doesn't mean it's what 300million Americans think or what the US government believes. The muslims ought to focus on the fact of getting ripped off by their own leaders in the east of this country.

The producer of the film has achieved what he wanted to achieve, Which is to annoy the Muslim World. If the Muslims are wise (?) they should have ignored the whole episode and the producer will be ashamed off what he did.
