Police probe attack on Borella mosque

IMG-20150531-WA0004The police are investigating an attack on a mosque in Borella last night.

Stones had been thrown towards the mosque damaging glass and other property of the building.

The police media unit said that so far indications were that the attack was over a dispute a group had with the mosque authorities.

The authorities at the mosque reportedly had in their possession CCTV footage of a robbery which occurred at a building nearby and a group had requested for the footage.

The mosque authorities had however not given the footage and this was believed to have had led to the attack on the mosque last night. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. IF NO ONE IS BEEN FOUND RESPONSIBLE , ARREST THE ONES WHO CAME TO ASK THE CCTV IMAGES AND INTERROGATE IN SUCH A WAY THE TRUTH WILL COME OUT , HOW CAN ANYBODY THROW STONES , SINCE THE MUSLIMS ARE SILENT IT DOES MEAN THAT THEY ARE SCARED. THE DAY THE CAT COMES OUT OF THE BAG IS SO DANGEROUS , BEFORE THAT TAKE ACTION , WHAT IF ANYBODY HAS THROWN STONES AT A BUDDHIST TEMPLE AND GLASS BROKEN , IT IS SAME WAY ANYBODY SHOULD THINK , DO NOT ANGER THE PEOPLE WHO ARE PEACE LOVING AND GET THE RETURN BACK IN BAD SHAPE . BETTER BEHAVE LIKE HUMANS AND BE A GOOD CITIZEN OF THE COUNTRY WHEREEVER YOU LIVE

    • Peace loving? You are deaf and blind! More than that you do not have common sense! All through out the history Muslim is the religion that has spreader the violence!

      Go to Middle east and see from your blind eyes what is these so called peace loving doing! We have all these problems in the world because of your peace loving religion!

  2. Lima, I dont believe you are a Muslim. You are trying to provoke good people into fighting here. Who knows maybe its you who throw the rock.

    • Since when did it become the prerogative of only Muslims to highlight injustices to other Muslims. The religion indeed is a peaceful religion but as you’ll find in all religions there are factions who do them no good. Buddhism is still held in high esteem despite the critical damage the likes of Rev. Gnanasara Thera did in Aluthgama etc.
