President Ranil Accused of Shielding Beruwala Bhuhari Thankkiya Mosque Leader from Murder Probe..!

Allegations of Political Influence and Protection Surrounding Ash Sheikh Shah Mubarak Maulana

(Lanka-e-News -08.Jan.2024, 11.30 PM)  In a shocking revelation, it has been alleged that President Ranil Wickramasinghe is actively protecting Ash Sheikh Shah Mubarak Maulana, the leader of Beruwala Bhuhari Thankkiya Mosque, from a double murder probe and a violent attack on Masjidul Rahmaniya. The incidents in question took place on July 22, 2009, and have since been shrouded in controversy and accusations of political influence.

Prominent figure..

Ash Sheikh Shah Mubarak Maulana, a prominent figure in the Beruwala Bhuhari Thankkiya Mosque, reportedly sent his followers to attack Masjidul Rahuman on N M Zain Mawatha in Beruwala. The motives behind this violent incident are unclear, but it has raised concerns about the safety and harmony within the Muslim community.

What is particularly alarming is that Ash Sheikh Shah Mubarak Maulana has never been questioned by the Sri Lankan Police regarding his alleged involvement in orchestrating the attack. It is claimed that his followers, with connections in the Malwana region, exerted influence over the Police and the Attorney General's department, preventing any legal actions against him.

Mawzoon and Maulana..

One shocking detail in this saga is the revelation that one of Ash Sheikh Shah Mubarak Maulana's followers had a spouse who was deputy solicitor general at the time of the incident. This connection allegedly played a crucial role in shielding the mosque leader from facing any legal consequences. The spouse, who married a businessman from Galle, reportedly used her influence within the legal system to protect Ash Sheikh Shah Mubarak Maulana.

At the time of the attack, Ash Sheikh Shah Mubarak Maulana sought refuge inside a diplomatic mission, evading law and order. It is alleged that he received support from individuals involved in notorious scams, such as the sugar tax scam. One of the key figures aiding him during this time was Mawzoon, who is known for his involvement in fraudulent activities.

Raised serious questions..

In a surprising turn of events, it is claimed that the then Defence Minister Gotabaya Rajapaksha provided assistance to Ash Sheikh Shah Mubarak Maulana, ensuring that he was never questioned by the Police or other investigating agencies. The extent of political influence and protection surrounding this case has raised serious questions about the fairness and impartiality of the justice system.

Maulana continued to enjoy protection..

Despite the victims' families' relentless efforts to bring the culprits to justice, legal avenues were allegedly blocked by political interference until 2015. The case was subsequently reopened when the new Good Governance regime, led by Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe, came into power. However, it is now alleged that even under this regime, Ash Sheikh Shah Mubarak Maulana continued to enjoy protection from murder investigations.

Frustrated by the lack of progress and the alleged protection of the accused, the victims' families have sought international intervention. Evidential documents have been handed over to the US State Department, as one of the victim's family members resides in the United States. The hope is that international pressure may finally bring justice to those affected by these heinous crimes.

Hope is an international pressure..

As the controversy unfolds, questions are being raised about the role of political influence in hindering the pursuit of justice and the impact it has on the safety and security of communities within Sri Lanka. The allegations against President Ranil Wickramasinghe and the accused mosque leader, Ash Sheikh Shah Mubarak Maulana, continue to cast a shadow over the legal proceedings and raise concerns about the transparency of the justice system.
