Former defense secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa said the Muslims were grossly misled during the Rajapaksa regime by various elements who aspired to drive a wedge between the Muslims and the Rajapaksas.

At an Ifthar ceremony held at Beruwala on Saturday, Mr. Rajapaksa said the Muslims have now realized that the rumours spread in the past were totally false.

“Muslims are ready to work hand-in-hand with the Rajapaksas to form a government under the leadership of former president Mahinda Rajapaksa,” he said and pledged to work towards creating an atmosphere where all Muslims could live in peace and harmony under a government of Mahinda Rajapaksa in the near future.

    Trying to mislead them now?

    Tinkiriya Tuesday, 29 May 2018 10:47 PM

    My Muslim friends think otherwise. They still blame you and the whole MR govt because you failed to take action on those driving the wedge and protected those rascals. It is your failure that ousted you all from power.

    Why didn't you make statement before when you were in Power. Furthermore, the Rajapakse family association with Kudu Dumi, Big Mouth Wimale and uncle mervyn hurt the Rajapakse camp during the Last Presidential Elections.

    Poor Waseem Thajudeen must be turning in his grave after hearing the speech.

    Sunil Tuesday, 29 May 2018 11:34 PM

    There are many video recordings of what you Rajapaksas have said about the Muslims and Tamils of our country...

    Rohan Tuesday, 29 May 2018 11:53 PM

    What a joker !! All the Sri Lankans were taken for a ride by the Rajapakses. Once bitten twice shy. Never believe them any more. Only a moron will trust them to be let down again. They had the ample mojority to solve the ethnic problem. Failed meserably.

    Gota will make a great president very soon.

    mali Wednesday, 30 May 2018 04:25 PM

    Definitely unless history back fires.

    Lankaboy Tuesday, 29 May 2018 11:56 PM

    it is like Rajapaksas are king family.. Born to rule SriLanka.. He doesn't say SLFP or SLPP.. but Rajapaksas my foot

    Oh! What a saint!!!

    Nuwan Wednesday, 30 May 2018 12:58 AM

    Look who's talking.

    worse than this Wednesday, 30 May 2018 01:00 AM

    again want to cheat the Muslim community, once they come to the power again it will be worse than this

    Jude Wednesday, 30 May 2018 02:17 AM

    As a foreigner, Gota makes lots of political comments pertaining to SL !!??? Wonder why!!??

    Anonymous Wednesday, 30 May 2018 02:26 AM

    Thats bullshit!. A few dumb Muslims blindly follow you people.

    FELLOW Wednesday, 30 May 2018 04:27 PM

    Even the present present Yahapalana regime did not give proper protection to Muslims in Teldeniya during recent communal attack on them. Further those Armed Forces, STF who were entrusted to protect the minority community connived with those who attacked them. It was much worse than the Beruwela incident which was during Rajapakse regime. The PM as Law and order minister was ineffective although Muslims voted overwhelmingly for the UNP. Now they feel they were taken for a ride and many think Rajapakses would be be better option than the present regime leaders who are weak and cannot safeguard them.

    Actions spoke a lot louder then words!

    Tom Pachaya Wednesday, 30 May 2018 08:19 PM

    Both Gota and Mahinda miscalculated the back clash by instigating anti-Muslim riots because they thought that they can pull a Narendra Modi stunt as in Gujarat and gain power through Sinhala Buddhist extremism. Tough luck you morons.

    manel Wednesday, 30 May 2018 09:06 PM

    Why this sudden love for Muslim.First sort out Thajudeen murder.

    Jerome Thursday, 31 May 2018 12:25 PM

    Beruwela /Aluthgama vs Kandy riot compare the number of convictions.
