A classic example of how Eelam propagandist DBS. Jeyaraj is demonizing Sinhalese-Buddhists using the anti-Muslim Fundamentalism sentiments in Sri Lanka.

As I discussed in one of my previous posts, Eelam propagandist DBS. Jeyaraj (and hordes of others) has got a field day to demonize Sinhalese Buddhists making use the prevailing anti-Muslim Fundamentalism sentiments in the country.

How an incident that has taken place in Gampola in the Central Province is twisted to attack the majority community is a classic case in point to show Jeyaraj's nasty intentions.

Exploiting the situation to the hilt the heading of the article does the job with a devastating efficiency. The very fact that adding the two words "Muslim Owned" to the headline, though the incident is seemingly not ethnically related at all, the writer scores what he aims at in flying colours.                        

While claiming that it was not clear who the perpetrators were, the incident, an attack on Muslim owned shop by the owner's rival group, is portrayed using his journalistic skills as strongly connected to a work of BBS. The report carries a tone heavily blaming the BBS as a perpetrator for alleged attacks against Muslims. And then the Deputy Minister from Gampola ( a Muslim) who says that the incident isn't politically related but 100% personal is heavily criticized. The following quote from the article tells Jeyaraj's intentions in style.

"Cader Hadjiar aroused much anger when he stooped to the extent of declaring publicly that no Mosque had been attacked in Sri Lanka which was a statement totally contrary to the prevailing situation".

Here Cader Hadjiar is the Deputy Minister of Environment and Renewable Energy. In this quoted sentence "contrary to the prevailing situation" part suggests to a gullible reader who is not well informed about the prevailing true situation in Sri Lanka ( most probably to a reader living in a Western Country) that there have been spate of attacks on Mosques in Sri Lanka or to say more precisely attacking Mosques has been a daily occurrence in Sri Lanka. Has there been any incident connected to a Mosque except the incidents related to an illegal Mosque in Dambulla and building of a Mosque on the tomb of King Dutugamunu, one of the most venerated kings of the Sinhalese, some time back? Yes, a similar scenario would have prevailed in countries like India or in the USA given the fact that the sheer number of Mosques mushrooming disproportionate to the Muslim population in the country leave alone the incidents that bulldoze Buddhist temples and archaeological sites to build Mosques on them.

 (Protests by the Buddhists against Illegal construction of Mosques in Buddhist archaeological site in Kuragala and the vandalism of it by Muslim Fundamentalists are portrayed as attack against Mosques by Buddhists while sweeping under the carpet the fact that the court has given its judgment to demolish the illegal mosques on the site. While the true facts are covered up, a false and fabricated history of Muslims in the country is highlighted as exactly has been the case with Eelamists)                              

Jeyaraj says that the mainstream media is yet to report the incident. How could an incident which has taken place on 16th April (02 days back) miss by main stream media in the country if it was such a sensitive incident like Buddhists attacking a Muslim owned shop?  The incident that happened connecting to Fashion Bug a few weeks back in Piliyandala too would have faced the similar fate then.  

This is how Eelamist cum anti Sri Lankan Buddhists and pro Muslim Fundamentalism propagandists like David Buell Sabapathy Jeyaraj living in cool climes like Canada reports (and has been reporting for decades) incidents purely aimed at demonizing Buddhists in Sri Lanka.

I read the article on question. There are no mentions about BBS what so ever or trying to put the blame on Buddhists. You can't understand simple english don't you? Or are you that much dishonest?

DBSJ is a very balanced person. Of course, he is sympathetic towards Tamls, you can't blame that. He doesn't hate the entire Si-Bu society.

He is not a Xi'an fundamentalist. He never was a LTE supporter.

I tend to disagree. I have been reader of his web site. He does stand for tamil rights but he does not support separation of the country.
