Thank you Brother for your update. Which is an eye opener to all of us.In the little knowledge I have on Islamic banking, Chances of it going down is very bleak & the many articles I have read in the past suggest that Islamic Banking is the way out for the Current Economic crisis.So does this mean that the learned Ulama's who are in the Sharia Counsel at Ceylinco Profit Share have duped the community as well and have not monitored the investments of the bank as per sharia procedure.SalaamsDasthi----- Original Message -----From: Mohd ZiardSent: Thursday, July 02, 2009 3:42 PMSubject: <SRILANKA MUSLIMS> Ceylinco profit sharing Islamic investment: Muslims been victimized by muslims
I wish to highlight an issue which is effecting about 8000 Muslim victims in Sri Lanka & aboard, although it seem to be personal issue for who are victimized by this ,it is effecting most of our Muslim community mostly who are rural poor Muslims who have been robed of their hard earned halal money, by publishing this you are doing a great favor to our community by informing them to be aware of such scams (duping the public of Islamic concepts ) & to avoid more innocent people being victimized.
This is my story, I was employed in Saudi Arabia for a period of over ten years, sacrificing my young days & missing my first two sons births, sicknesses & many more important family events, I decided to chuck up & return back to Sri Lanka in January 2003,as I had to be with my family & since my mother was old it was my responsibility to look after her as well as I was the only child for her, upon my return I was attached to HSBC bank for some time & then decided to chuck up as for Islamic principles does not allow to get involved in any business relating to taking interest, (When I was in Saudi I used to go for umrah once a year & once I performed Haj with my mom marshah allah!),as for my merger savings after all expenses occurred, I thought of investing in some Islamic bank, this is where I went wrong as I selected the wrong place, I withdrew all my foreign currency & invested at “Ceylinco profit sharing Islamic investment co operation” the rest of the story is quite obvious to all of you I suppose,
Up to now I have not been able to budge a cent of my hard earned money, recently my mother had a fall because of her old age, had to admit her at the Durdens, doctors said you will have to take a chance in doing a surgery, or else she will be bed ridden, I had difficulty in raising funds as I had know one whom I could borrow from, while my mother was undergoing surgery I called the CEO of the so called Islamic company Mr. Rafeek, also one of the directors Mr.Jayatissa, both of them asked me to call the next day & cowardly avoided answering my calls from the day onwards, Inahi Illahi Inahi wa rajoon! My mother passed of three days ago, with some miracle I managed to raise the necessary funds as they wouldn’t have released the body if the hospital bills were not settled.
Also I know an elderly lady who has been collecting money for a long time to go for Haj,
Similarly a girl from Beruwela who has been collecting money for her dowry, all these moneys are gone with the wind.
There may be so many similar stories, but there seems to be no body who can
Turn and look at us as it seems to be not anyone’s problem, the Central bank, the police are not in a position to help us,
Although the basic principle of this organization was published as ”interest free Islamic banking” the weekly customer meeting the customers have had with the directors has disclosed the moneys taken has been utilized to invest in many of the organizations other subsidiaries which involves in paying interest. It is the rural Muslim community in towns such as Kathankudy,Battical o, Ampari & many other rural towns who have been victimized by this as the company had eight branches operating in these areas, even when the company ran in to difficulty they have been taking deposits from unsuspected customers which is plain robbery.
As we know there is no one above “Allah” who knows best, the pity is it is muslims who are vandalizing other muslims, let this be an eye opener to muslims all over the world not to believe anyone just because they have a muslim name!
See all the ways you can stay connected to friends and family
