சவூதி அரேபியா ரியாத் நகரில் அகில இலங்கை ஜம்இயதுல் உலமா தலைவர் ரிஸ்வி முப்தி அவர்கள் தெரிவித்த கருத்துகள் தொடர்பில் சில ஊடங்கள் தவறான தகவலை வெளியிட்டமைக்கு அகில இலங்கை ஜம்இயதுல் உலமா  வருந்துகிறது.

எங்கும் ரிஸ்வி முப்தி தம்புள்ள மஸ்ஜித்தை தகர்ப்பதற்கு அல்லது இடமாற்றுவதற்கு கோரவும் இல்லை அகில இலங்கை ஜம்இயதுல் உலமாவும் அந்த சிந்தனைக்கு ஆதரவாக இருந்ததும் இல்லை என்று தெரிவித்துள்ளது.

  1. Non of the Speeches by Mufti Rizwie in Riyadh referred to the Dambullah Incidents.
    On being interviewed after the Religious Lecture by the Reporter Mufti Rizwe had provided some explanation which has been quoted out of Context probably due to an Error.
    Having read the News Article the Mufti had requested a correction.
    QUOTE :
    The Mufti Clarified to the Reporter that – he didn’t want people to misunderstand that ACJU is agreeable to the demolition and relocation of the Dambulla Mosque. Also the granting of Land belonging to the Line Mosque in Kandy is not to be construed as a precedent for the action of demolition and relocation of the Dambulla Mosque. The granting of Land from the Mosque Property was stated in a sense of how accommodative the Muslim Community is and wanted Peaceful coexistence in the Country.
    The Clarification forwarded to the Reporter was :
    QUOTE :
    1. Dambulla Masjid was established in 1962.
    2. It has a long history of more than 5 decadesof serving the community in that region.
    3. ACJU, the Muslim Community and the Muslim Parliamentarians are all of the opinion that the Mosque should not be removed from its present location.
    4. There is a correction to the statement in the Article : “Earlier, Muslims in the Kandy district allowed the Line mosque to be demolished to give way for some city development projects. Similarly, we built the mosque in Nimal Road far away from the stipulated boundary to accommodate the highway that was constructed in the neighborhood,” he added.”
    a. The Kandy Line Mosque was not demolished to give way for some city development project – The Muslims in Kandy gave land from the Property belonging to the Line Mosque for some city development work similar to the Land from Nimal Road Mosque granted to accommodate the Highway that was constructed. This shows how the Muslims are accommodative and want to live peacefully.
    5. The ACJU and the Muslim Ummah condemn the manner in which the illegal protest was conducted causing the stoppage of the Jummah Prayer at Dambulla.
    6. We believe in Dialogue to solve problems. All problems can be resolved by dialogue.
    7. We want that All Sri Lankans should be able to live in Peace and Harmony.
    UNQUOTE :
    A subsequent correction in the form of an article was published in the ArabNews of Next Day as follows :
    Make religion a priority, Sri Lankan students advised
    By RIYADH: MD RASOOLDEEN, ARAB NEWS STAFF
    Published: May 7, 2012 03:15 Updated: May 9, 2012 14:36
    Priority should be given to religion in all circumstances, a visiting Sri Lankan Muslim scholar told Muslim students in Riyadh on Saturday.
    M.I.M. Rizvi Mufthie, president of the Colombo-based All Ceylon Jamiyathul Ulama (ACJU), was addressing more than 150 students at a lecture held at the auditorium of the World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY) in Riyadh.
    Muslim students from grade three to advanced level classes were present with their parents to listen to the lecture of Mufthie, who was deemed one of the 500 most influential Muslims worldwide.
    “You must be a Muslim first before you get involved in other activities,” Mufthie said, pointing out such a concept would guide one in the right path of Almighty Allah.
    The scholar insisted students should learn to practice Islamic values in their daily life and follow the principles of Islam as laid down by the Qur’an and the Sunnah. Cultivating good habits and manners will make them useful citizens in society, the scholar said. Both male and female students were present to listen to the lecture program chaired by Saleem Mowlana.
    In Colombo, the ACJU headed by Mufthie plays an active role as the Islamic religious authority with 3,000 active members.
    Speaking to reporters following the lecture, Mufthie said after the recent attack on a mosque in Dambulla, his organization has been keen on resolving the issue through dialogue with the parties involved. However, he reiterated that ACJU and the Muslim Ummah severely condemn the manner in which an illegal protest was conducted there, disrupting the Friday prayers at the mosque.
    “As Muslims, we have compromised with other communities in several instances,” he said, pointing out that Muslims in the city of Kandy gave land from property belonging to the Line Mosque for some city development work.
    “Similarly, land from Nimal Road Mosque in Colombo was given to the government to accommodate the highway that was constructed,” he said. “This shows how Muslims are accommodative and want to live peacefully with other communities on the island.”
    He recalled Dambulla Masjid was established in 1962 and has a long history of more than five decades serving the community in that district.
    “The ACJU, the Muslim community and Muslim parliamentarians are all of the opinion that the mosque should not be moved from its present location,” he added.
    HOPE THIS CLARIFIES.
    Kind Regards.

  2. Dear Mr. Lateef Farook,

    Assalaamu Alaikum.

    I have gone through your letter regarding the statement of Rizvi Mufthi. I have also known you as a journalist and a writer. I have read with interest many of your writings and do value many of your views.

    Regarding the statement made by Rizvie Mufthi, I can understand your concerns. You seem to think that his statement has put the Muslims into a very poor and unconfirtable situation and that Muslims are a boneless community. It is how a person with much attachement and feelings to the community would feel. There is no wrong in the way of your thinking and the way you have put down facts.

    Saying this, I would also like to state that Rizvie Mufthi has played a very far thinking diplomatic role. His statement or his behaviour is not putting the Muslims into a backward situation but it would surely raise the status of the Muslims in time to come. We cannot forget how our Holy Prophet Muhammed behaved during the Hudaibiyah treaty. the opinion of the most was that the Muslims have surrendered to unjust. BUt what happed? Didn’t it bring victory to the Muslims in the end.

    I don’t think the Muslims are speaking otherwise to the statement of Rizvie Mufthi. Many people with whom I am associated are speaking about his far reaching thought and commitment to peace and harmony. Many non-Muslims too have hailed his statement and are saying that his statement is a slap on the faces of those who was behind the whole episode. Some even say that this concerned Buddhist Monk should learn a lesson from the statement of Rizvi Mufthi. Today, as you have stated many Buddhists have made statements against the way of behaviour of the monk. It is an act of a handful people for political gains headed by the monk concerned. Should we fall pray to such vandalism by acting in another way rather than in a nonviolent manner. Islam is for peace. Peace cannot be achieved and sustained in the absence of nonviolence. In my opinion Rizvie Mufthi has acted and behaved in the highest form of nonviolence. This is Islam.

    The intention of this response is not to undermine what you have said but to highlight the importance of tolerant and patience in the background of nonviolence. The Muslims of Dambulla have requested not to complicate manners and to be patience so that the unity that they have with the local non-muslims could be maintained.

    I sincerely hope that you would take in this in the best positive manner for a constructive outcome of the situation and also to maintain the unity among us with dignity and respect to each other. May Allah, the Almighty grant his blessing upon you and the work that you are doing.
