Salaams to all,
Let us look at the details.
According to Divayina - the Sinhala Daily, this incident took place on 25th of May. 2012.
The group of monks were led by Viharadhipathi Rev Kanumuldeniye Dharmasoka in the company of Rev.Akmeemana Dharmaratana, former member of parliament from Hela Urumaya. This is the first time Rev Akmeemana Dharmaratana's name is mentioned in public.
What is special about this Rev.Dharmaratana?
This very person was instrumental in the attack on Dambulla mosque, and goes around organizing protests against not only Muslims but also Christian places of worship as per intelligence reports. This priest is over 5' 6", Dark Brown complexion, well built like a wrestler. This man does not take the leading role. But he can be seen in the second place just behind the leading person, to ensure the progress of the action. He comes with a set of his own imported followers to make the scene lively.
In the Dambulla attack the spot light light was on Rev.Inamaluwe Thero. Muslims and non-Muslims from every station cursed this priest because he was the one who was visible and loud. But the real culprit was lost to everyone except the intelligence.
I am not sure if this political priest was instrumental in Anuradhapura, but I will be surprised if he was not there.
In Dehiwala the slogans read "FUNDAMENTALISTS". Why this word FUNDAMENTALIST? Was there any Muslims brother with a different dogma instrumental in this protest?
This is a question we have to look into. If the answer is none, all of us can be happy.
OUR DIFFERENCES SHOULD NOT SPILL OVER TO BRING DISGRACE AND DESTRUCTION TO THE MUSLIMS AND ISLAM.
Remember the Anuradhapura mosque demolition, the Fajr Adhan fiasco, Beruwala murder?
Now, where is the LOUD MOUTHED 3rd level Muslim politician who demanded in Public to demolish all unauthorized Buddhist statues?
ALL MUSLIMS SHOULD USE WISDOM AT THESE CRITICAL SITUATIONS.
May Allah Guide all the Muslms.

MOB ATTACK MADRASAH IN COLOMBO- URGENT ACTION NEEDED BY ALL PARTIES
Yes, this looks like there is a Master Plan behind all the attacks.
As per Br Eng Ismaeel Marikkarâ€™s suggestion, our politicians have to take the BATON now and handle the matter, before it is too late and the matter gets out of hand.
This is one aspect and on the other hand our Scholars and Professionals too have to handle this Urgent matter very delicately without any prejudice and leaving aside any political affliations/sympathies.
And in the meantime let us all seek/invoke Allah Subahnahuâ€™taalahs Blessings for a peaceful resolution to this whole episode and to Grant us Peace, Harmony and Tranqulity in our Island nation
FIRST IT WAS 'PURA,THEN DAMBULLA,NOW DEHIWELA.
WE MUSLIMS HAVE ACTED WITH RESTRAINT BUT FOR HOW LONG?
WE HAVE TO SEEK ADVICE OF SCHOLARS. WE NEED YOU PEOPLE TO HIGHLIGHT THIS BY FORWARDING TO ALL CONTACTS. THESE ARE NOT ISOLATED INCIDENTS, BUT A MASTER PLAN. WHILE THIS IS HAPPENING OUR MUSLIM POLITICIANS ARE DOING NOTHING.RIZWIE MUFTHI AND ACJU NOT WORTH TALKING ABOUT
WE WOULD LIKE YOUR COMMENTS AND ALSO GIVE PUBLICITY IN ARAB NEWS, SAUDI GAZETTE, AND KHALEEJ TIMES.
WHILE THIS IS HAPPENING OUR PRESIDENT IS BEING GIVEN RED CARPET TREATMENT IN QATAR.

Buddhist Monks Want To Demolish A Muslim Community Building In Colombo
By Colombo Telegraph -
Buddhist monks took to the streets yesterday again demanding the demolition of yet another Muslim community building in Colombo, claiming it was illegal, Ceylon Today reports. Meanwhile Divaina newspaper claims that the building is a illegal cattle-killing place belong to Islam fundamentalists.
Over 250 protestors led by Buddhist monks staged a demonstration yesterday in front of Galvihara Road, Dehiwala, calling for the demolition of the Madarasa â€˜Darul- Qurâ€™an lil Baranil Iman. The protestors charged it is an illegal construction and a place where goats are scarified.
One of the monks leading the protest claimed the Madarasa should be demolished as the Muslims had constructed it illegally; a claim many Muslims in the area are disputing.
In response to this a member of the trustee board, Hizni Mohamed said the Madarasa named has been situated here for over 13 years. â€œIt is a place mainly to teach and educate the children on religion and the Qurâ€™an,â€� he said.
He said the monksâ€™ claim that the Muslims were rearing goats and sacrificing them within the premises of the Madarasa, but nothing of that sort happened. â€œIt is not an illegal construction. We have accurate deeds and the building has been there for so many years,â€� he said.
According to the Western Province UNP PC member Mujibur Rahman, this Madarasa has been frequented by the Muslims for 13 years and this problem of demolishing has begun all of a sudden. â€œNothing illegal or unlawful is happening,â€� he confirmed.
When Ceylon Today contacted the Mayor of Dehiwala-Mount Lavinia, Municipal Council Dhanasiri Amaratunge said that a group of monks had complained to him regarding an illegal construction.
â€œI sent a team to inspect the area and we have found that the Madarasa is an illegal construction and we have summoned them to court on Monday. Even before the legal aspect could be done the villagers and the monks have begun a protest,â€� he said.
