Global Sri Lankan Forum (GSLF), an organisation of Sri Lankans domiciled in different parts of the world, requested the government to ban Wahabi teaching, among other activities in responding to the present security crisis confronting the country.

Issuing a statement, the organization asked the government to ensure proper investigation and impose maximum punishment on ex -Defense secretary, IGP and other related officers for working irresponsibly and ensuring public security.

This will send out the message that the government officers should always act responsibly on their and the neglect of duty will lead to serious consequences.

It also asked the government to deport all foreign refugees who are presently in Sri Lanka from other countries as soon as possible while banning Wahabi teachings, education, and other activities and called for the enactment new laws to curb such extremism.

It also asked for ensuring protection to historical Buddhist sites, specifically in the North and the East, and to prohibit Sharia law and related institutions, courts etc.

The other recommendations include immediately commencing criminal investigation against Muslim parliamentarians who help to propagate extremism and terrorism in Sri Lanka, enacting laws to monitor all inflow of financial grants to all religious institutions.

“We, the Global Sri Lankan Forum- would like to share the sorrow and sympathy with all Sri Lankans at this fateful hour in our Motherland. It is unfortunate that we, as a nation could not save the innocent lives of our fellow Sri Lankans and foreigners who were victims of the carnage. The Global Sri Lankan Forum – Executive Committee had highlighted to the top senior members of the Sri Lankan administration about the looming extremism coupled with separatism of the LTTE Tamil terrorism at our meetings with some of you and by the correspondence we exchanged. We believe too much emphasize that had been given to the so called “reconciliation” over the national security and too much favors had been extended to the minority politicians for the sake of six parliament votes which had to be re- paid by the high price of 300 lives.

The statement has been signed by Yasas Dharmadasa , Eric Makawitage(Switzerland), Senaka Rajapakse (GSLF- Poland President), Harsha Perera ,( GSLF- Australia), Lalith Premalal Prasanga Jayamanna( President, GSLF- Ireland President) ,Prasanga Jayamanna( GSLF- United King), Nuwan Ballantudawa(Sri Lanka), Jagath Chandrawansa(President –GSLF_Russia).

    First of all these GSLF fake refugees must be deported from those countries for making false asylum claim taking advantage of the minority issues in Sri Lanka. Pathetic lot!

    Close down all madrassas and ban the proposed Sharia law university in the East, as these are places where Wahabi teaching occurs!

    A good analysis and very well-thought out set of recommendations, which I hope that the government acknowledges and puts into action without delay. Additionally. I would like to add that sovereignty should not be compromised at any cost. Once permission is given for naval bases and foreign boots on ground, they will never leave. If this is a true democracy, listen to the people. I am sure that Sri Lankans will not want this to happen at any cost.

    The signatories who only appear to be patriots of mother Lanka, should explain why they are domiciled in foreign countries ?
