I believe that hate campaign against Muslims and campaign of anti halal should be seen and treated as two separate issues.
SL should not be a victim of another internal war and what we experienced in last three decades is sufficient enough to learn that bitter lesson. Even most dumbest person may agree with me on this regard. We do not want another war. In that sense hate campaign against Muslims should not be encouraged.

However halal issue is different. It is a violation of free market policies.

As I explained previously , in a Dayan s thread, halal is not quality standard such as SLS or ISO. It is merely a religious customary which performed and incorporated in view of satisfying small segment of market. Rest of the market do not wish to have that. However without having consent of those majority, one has incorporated halal and charge them, without retiming any benefit for them.

The Muslim organization which issue halal certificate does not give it free. They charge minimum of 175,000.00 per anum. There are 4500 brands . Therefore total cost of this religious proceeding is 17500 x 4500 = 780 million per year. why should market pay 0.7 billion annually for religious organization for nothing . In that sense majority of the customers have a moral right to reject halal. In that sense I do not find any fault in anti halal campaign.

However as I said previously , Muslim hate campaign and anti halal campaign should be seen and treated as two different issues.

My source is from http://www.halaal.acju.net/

It is the Muslims who want to have Halal. Not the rest. So why rest of others Pay 0.78 billion ( in Macro situation) to perform religious customary of others.

If Muslims want Halal they should bare the cost. In that sence ACJU has to bare the cost not by the others. Muslims can donate the sums to ACJU so that they can have Halal as they wish.

The problem here is Muslims want to have Halal on others cost. My humble belief is that not correct.

I will remind you how 'George Bush' behaved as a real leader when '911' happend, ordering whole United States police stations to give protection to all 'Muslim Communities' and 'Mosques' and not a single Muslim was sufferd.


Crying Out, you are talking BS.

In 911, one pilot in the pensylvania plane was IRanian and they never mentioned it.

Even to date, Muslims are seen and not heard.

I have seen how muslims were sou rounded at the boarder by guards while hoisting pistol to the air.

But, it did not become one like los angels riots.

HALAL is just part of ISLAMIZATION of the world.

A French television documentary has revealed that all of the slaughterhouses in the greater Paris metropolitan area are now producing all of their meat in accordance with Islamic Sharia law.

The expos broadcast by France 2 television also alleged that much of the religiously slaughtered meat known as halal is not labeled as such and is entering the general food chain, where it is being unwittingly consumed by the non-Muslim population.

The revelation has sparked political controversy in France, where Islam and the question of Muslim immigration has become a central issue in the presidential campaign.

Halal, which in Arabic means lawful or legal, is a term designating any object or action that is permissible according to Sharia law. In the context of food, halal meat is derived from animals slaughtered by hand according to methods stipulated in Islamic religious texts.

One such halal method, called dhabihah, consists of making a swift, deep incision with a sharp knife on the neck that cuts the jugular vein, leaving the animal to bleed to death. Much of the controversy involving halal stems from the fact that Sharia law bans the practice of stunning the animals before they are slaughtered. Pre-slaughter stunning renders the animals unconscious and thus is said to lessen pain.

Not surprisingly, far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has turned the halal controversy into a campaign issue. Speaking to supporters at a February 18-19 congress of her National Front party in the northern city of Lille, Le Pen said: 'All the abattoirs in the Paris region sell halal meat without exception. They have succumbed to the rules of a minority. We have reason to be disgusted.'

Le Pen added: 'This situation is a real deception and the government has been fully aware of this situation for months.' She then accused French President Nicolas Sarkozy of bowing down to 'Islamic radicals.'

Sarkozy responded by saying that Le Pen had her facts wrong. Although the slaughterhouses in Paris do in fact slaughter all of their animals according to halal methods, local abattoirs provide only a relatively small amount of the meat consumed in the capital. Sarkozy said that most of the meat consumed in Paris originates in slaughterhouses located in other parts of France that do not necessarily follow halal procedures.

While Sarkozy may be right on the details, Le Pen has seized on an issue that resonates with millions of French voters.

According to the France2 documentary, French slaughterhouses produce far more halal meat than is needed to serve the estimated six million Muslims who live in France. The documentary reported that roughly 30% of all the meat produced in France is halal, while the Muslim population in France comprises approximately 7% of the total French population.

This is what exactly happened to Lankan Tamils in riots prior to 83, in the Black July of 1983 (especially the hacking and burning alive people part), and from in the North & East from 1987 to 2001.


before that dig deeper, see what has been happening since Elara's time 200 BC.. Dravidian invasion goes back to as far as 200 BC

INVASIONS, VIOLENCE, ATROCITIES AND PLUNDER CHARACTERIZE TAMIL/DRAVIDIAN INVOLVEMENT IN SRI LANKA FROM 230 BCE

Recorded history states that Sri Lanka was invaded as much as seventeen times by South Indian Dravidian Tamil speaking invaders since 230 BCE. Coming with armies of Tamils from South India they ruthlessly wiped out entire Sinhala villages along their way to Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa the royal capitals of the past. These highly prosperous Sinhala Buddhist capitals were ransacked and plundered and the people subject to untold atrocities. This was a part of Tamil invasions and occupation of our land for varying periods of time in the past. They killed Sinhala Kings or forced them to the retreat to the south. These Tamil invaders sat on the Sinhala throne and ruled over the Sinhala people for about 170 years at different times. The Tamil threat to the Sinhala Buddhist kingdoms had become very real in the fifth and sixth centuries CE.
