A Tamil President In Sri Lanka

By Jagath Asoka

Dr. Jagath Asoka

I am writing this article to find out whether the Sinhala-Buddhists in Sri Lanka would elect a well-educated, suave, Sinhala-speaking Tamil—someone similar to Mr. Lakshman Kadirgamar—as our President in Sri Lanka.  Whence comes this hatred; this mistrust? To an outsider, most Sri Lankans—unless your ancestors had intimate relations with the Europeans—look the same: dark-haired, dark-skinned, talkative curry-munchers. Sri Lankans do not hide their racist and bigoted remarks. Some of my friends have told me that they do not want their children to marry African Americans, Tamils, or Muslims. We always label Whites as racists, but what about Sri-Lankans: the proud members of our Sinhala-Buddhist clan and the forever-suffering Sri Lankan Tamils? Once upon a time there were Tamil-Buddhists in Sri Lanka. If we were to find out that Mahinda Rajapaksa’s ancestors were Tamil-Buddhists, would our BBS zealots continue to support him? Relax! Mahinda is not a Moses-like figure. He is not going to take the Tamils and cross the Indian Ocean and settle down in Tamil Nadu. We have killed our Sri Lankan Tamil Hitler; where is our Sri Lankan Tamil Obama?  Would the Sri Lankans who support African American Obama, support a Tamil Obama in Sri Lanka?

Until Obama was elected in 2008, I never thought an African American would be President here in the USA; my feelings were based on my own experience that I had had in the Midwest while doing my graduate studies.  In 1992, one of my friends made a facetious remark: She said to me, “You are a sand-nigger.” Two months ago, I was having dinner with my Sri Lankan friends. A middle-aged Caucasian woman who was sitting at the adjacent table said, “These Blacks are so loud.” Thanks to Rev. Martin Luther King Jr, a dark-skinned Sri Lankan like myself can go to any restaurant here in the USA, but it does not mean that I would get the same treatment as Caucasians. So who is worse, the lady who called us Blacks or the Sinhalese who do not want their children to marry African Americans, Tamils, or Muslims? I will let you figure that out.

We have killed Prabhakaran, his wife, and his children—I hope Prabhakaran did not have any children out of wedlock, because I do not want to see a movie similar to Da Vinci Code in 4000 CE. We have killed Prabhakaran, but have we killed the dream of Elam? If you are a Tamil, would you say that you have given up the dream of Elam?  Based on the events in our history, can we blame the Tamils for dreaming of an Elam?  The good thing about this website is that you can be anonymous and express your virulent, blistering opinions openly and honestly. I do not mind your poor syntax, but be gentle with your diction; nobody is going to send a white van to pick you up. So don’t worry; say whatever that comes to your mind, but be gentle with your words. I do not know anything about you, but my ten-year-old son reads your comments to me.

Recently, the Tamils cashed a check: Tamils elected Tamil politicians who are not associated with the ruling party or the leading opposition party in Sri Lanka—Sinhala Buddhists are the majority in both parties. So, if we were to hold a referendum, would the Tamils in Sri Lanka say no to Elam?

I have the luxury of asking questions because I do not live in Sri Lanka. I sincerely understand that people are scared to ask questions. Not only the hoi polloi but also our ex-ambassadors and intellectuals who live in Sri Lanka are scared, especially of the bogeyman that sends white vans to pick them up. People would openly mention names of virulent monks such as Ven. Galagodaatte Gnanasara thero, but they would not openly accuse Gotabhaya Rajapakse, let alone Mahinda Rajapaksa, even when they firmly believe and convinced that Gotabaya Rajapakse is the person who is behind their miseries and privation: Gotabaya Rajapakse, the man who can make you disappear in a jiffy. God, what has happened to our country? The current regime would have given Navi Pillay their white van treatment if they could have gotten away with it. Only the hapless get the white van treatment in Sri Lanka. I salute Navi Pillay for her courageous spirit. If I were Navi Pillay, I would come to the following conclusion: The current regime will always pretend to cooperate while using henchman to ridicule me—you can hire a henchman in Sri Lanka for less than ten dollars a day; all you need to do is to give them a bottle of local liquor and a packet of rice and curry, and they will even curse their own mothers and their children while eating milk-rice. I think our artists have to figure out a way to make fun of these untouchables in Sri Lanka: What is common to all dictators is that they hate parody, because they think it makes them appear namby-pamby.

When you read or listen to people, pay attention to what they avoid. They have a tendency to circumambulate and avoid mentioning certain names and events. Basically when people talk, they talk about four things; these are the Four Noble Truths of our verbal and oral communication: Ignorance, Malice, Pride, and Love.  When you read this article you will find that every statement that I have made comes under these four categories as well; every comment that you are going to make comes under the same four categories as well. If you were to combine pride and love, the Four Noble Truths of communication becomes the Holy Trinity of communication: Ignorance, Malice, and Pride.

My dear BBS zealots, stop treating our scurrilous politicians as if they were salvific figures, like the Buddha, Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed. Dayasiri is a good example in our recent politics.  What Dayasiri did was an anathema to people who would sacrifice their lives to keep their promises. What was the impetus? Is it money or the greed for power? Our politicians would say anything to get votes. Mahinda Rajapaksa declared Prabhakaran a hero; Wigneswaran added another adjective and called Prabha, a mahaveera (a great hero). People do not sell their souls for nothing. Remember, Judas did it for 30 shillings.

        Excellent work Jagath! Thanks Machan.
        India’s PM is from the minority community – a Sikh. Sikhs fought for their own state- Kalistan and a Sikh even killed Indira Gandhi but today Manmohan is Prime Minister. Indians are advanced in their thinking and civilized and have Nobel prize winners among them. In the US there is a Black man in the White House and Michele Obama’s ancestors did no even have the vote – as Barack has pointed out..
        Sri Lanka and particularly the Sinhalaya Buddhist Modayas are very primitive and backward still evolving very slowly. The Sinhalaya modayas leaders are even more backward – believe in primitive clan identities and the inferiority of the Sinhalas who have a big complex because they are so few.. The Madness of Rajapassa is that he thinks he is superior and that paving roads of Colombo and hosting Commonwealth of Clowns is progress while mentally they are even more backward than ape man!

          India’s prime minister is appointed by majority party…the population of india is approx 100 million…you don’t need a mathematical genius to work on the ethnic and religious voter bank…srilanka can never have a yamil/muslim/burgher as a prime minister or president ( even though all those elected except a few, were those who embraced buddhism for the sake of politics).so, to talk about the subject is futile…some ones’ have got their wires crossed here !

              As the UN world conference against racism affirmed human “diversity is a gift and not a threat”.. The FAILURE of the SInhala Buddhist modayas and their leaders is to recognize diversity of the country as an asset.

              All the best people from the minority communities (as well as the Sinhala majority community (like Jagath) are migrating and there is a huge BRIAN DRAIN for Lanka because good people find it difficult to live in a country where the leaders are CORRUPT and CRIMINAL MORONS.
              Today Lanka is a country where you can be successful ONLY if you are a political crony, relative and/or criminal of the Rajafukse regime..

            The late Kamaraj (a Tamil) was offered the PM’s post by a majority consensus but the leader he is, Kamaraj politely declined.

            Indian Population is not 100 million, and it is almost 1.2 billion with majority of Hindus.

            In Sri Lanka it was possible by Late Lakshman Kadir Gamer to become a President. But Sinhala Racist killed him (contract killing) and put the blame on LTTE. That is why today MARA became a president of Sri Lanka. Until monk hegemony exist in Sri Lanka the minority President is not possible.

          In my opinion, we Tamils have our own separate homeland in the NE of Sri Lanka known as the Tamil Eelam, no matter who controls it right now.

          Why should any Tamil become a leader of the alien land when we have our own land in the NE? In our homeland people speak only their native language (Tamil) and the International language (English) and nobody speaks a foreign language (Sinhala). I have never seen the people in our homeland (NE) singing the National Anthem in the foreign language (Sinhala).

          Two thousand years ago when Elara got killed with around 60,000 Tamils, some people would have thought that it is the end of Tamils in Sri Lanka but they simply cannot wipe out a nation. This history will continue to repeat until one day the country splits into two.

          So, Tamils do not need to think of becoming a President anywhere beyond our homeland (Tamil Eelam).

        Way to Go – keep it coming JK!
        Sorry to say that although I am Sinhala the Sinhalese tribe is a primitive, racist and insular lot who like to pretend that they are superior..
        The ONLY difference between Sinhalas and Tamils is LINGUISTIC and cultural (language that they speak, customs, traditions etc). There is absolutely NO racial difference between the two groups and as you point out Buddhism was Tamil before the Sinhalas even knew it existed.
        Today Ms USA is a Desi – of SOUTH Indian origin.. and the Leader of US is of African Origin. This is why the USA is a great country.. Singapore’s Foreign Minister and current deputy Prime Minister – Rajaratnam and Tharman are of Ceylon Tamil descent. But Lanka has never had a minority leader..

          Well said Anthropos.
          I have a sneaking suspicion that a lot of Tamil origin people changed their names, so that they could move to the south of Sri Lanka.
          Gunasekeram became Gunasekera, Gunaratnam became Gunaratne, Karunaratnam became Karunaratne, Cullotunga from Kerala became Kulatunga. What about the Pereras, De Silvas and Fernandos, who changed their names and religion, to curry favour with the Portuguese? Were they Sinhalese or were they Tamil? Why did Percy become Mahendra, and then Mahinda?
          Why did Banda and JR call themselves Buddhists?
          All this Name, religion and Ethnic changes were made with the sole purpose of getting the best advantage out of the System.
          Why don’t we set up a DNA Bank to see what constitutes a ‘Sinhala Buddhist’?
          I just like to call myself a Human Being!

            Rationalist is right.
            All this romantic,spiritual BS is merely to add momentum to that false continuity the body needs.
            The body is only concerned with it’s own survival and lives to procreate and it’s response to both pleasure and pain is the same groan emanating from it.
            In the final analysis there is no Sinhalese,Tamil or Muslim for that matter in this country.These divisions are made by religious charlatans who want to hold on to people for their own survival business by mystifying them,that’s all.

            Rationalist, your are correct.
            Micheal Roberts and other anthropologists have documented the fact that the Karava (Karaya in Tamil for the Fisher caste), Durava and Salagama castes (KSD CASTES) were actually Tamil/Dravidian language speaking migrants to were assimilated into Sinhala society as lower castes… before colonial racial science (which is scientifically WRONG) , the big social division and cleavage in the Isle of lanka was caste and not racial identity..

        Wimal, Obama became President, because he spoke American, the language of the American Nation. If Sri Lanka had continued with the common language of the Country before SWRD, we would not have all these splits. Every Sri Lankan would have been trilingual and able to communicate with one another in Amity.

          This island has been ruled by Tamils. Example; The last king of Sri Lanka.
          The day a Tamil is elected to head the government of Sri Lanka will be a golden day of Sri Lanka.But it will take at least another two decades.
          Even if the Lord Buddha comes and tell the Buddhists to elect a Tamil as the head of Sri Lanka terrorists like elle kolla will not vote.

        Mr Lakshman Kadirgamar was killer by the LTTE, please don’t glorify or protect the LTTE, LTTE lost it’s mission and killed some very valuable human assets of Sri Lanka including Mr LK and many other Tamil leaders who didn’t not think in their line. LTTE and the JVP are same and they destroyed SL, JVP were the 1st shoot inside the temple of the tooth and then the LTTE with help of some sinhala Buddhists bombed the Temple of the tooth. That was the day if sinhala Buddist were so religious should have ended the LTTE, at the time no so call monks or monkeys or Sinhalese Buddhists came out and where were these politicians who are so patriotic at the time???? When the Barmian Buddhas were destroyed, no freaking sinaha buddists spoke out, but when the Americans bomb the living hell out of Afghanistan the JVP and the monk went in procession to the american embassy Colombo to ask america to stop it. in 1983 Sinhala so call Buddhists looted the Tamil people and burn their homes while the JR gov sat back and watched…..And please one of you name one pure Sinhalese who had done any thing for Sri Lanakan that all parts of his name is Sinhalese in the last 100 years….if you take General Fonseka it was very nice the way the Sinhalese showed their gratitude… i guess that was the 1st teaching of lord Buddha…. The tamil People in the north was more grateful to him than the people he fought for… so the maral of the story is sinhalese will vote for any one if they get something free….it can be Indian Chinese Portuguese or any other idiot as long as he is a clown…and deceive them since they loved to be lied and deceived

      Asoka,
      Sinhala Buddhists had 03 non Sinhala Buddhist Kings (Telugu ).
      They protected the country, Hindu / Buddhist religion & culture & Muslims ( when they were massacred by Portuguese terrorists)as well , even after Europeans invaded Lanka in 1500 AD ran coastal areas, for another 300 years until 1815.
      Why & how ? they ruled the country as Adopted Sinhalese Buddhists, protecting what was Lankan.

      So it’s nothing new , after all, if there is any candidate who earns respect (not who is demanding) of Sinhalese, he would get it.

        The last four kings of Kandy from 1739 to 1815 were Nayakkar princes from Mathurai in South India who were referred to as Vaduka Tamils in Sinhala records. Nayakkar dynasty may have descended from Telugu but they were ruling southern Tamil Nadu from Mathurai and spoke Tamil. As per the SL history, they came from Mathurai to Kandy invited by the Kandyan Sinhalese Aristocrats to take up the Kandyan throne because there wasn’t anybody in the up-country with royal blood. The Up-country Kandyan Sinhalese Lords preferred a South Indian to a South Sri Lankan (low-country) as their king.

        However, the Nayakkar Kings did not act the way you have mentioned.
        The leading Kandyan Sinhalese Lords or Dissawas including Ehelepola, Pilimatalawe, Ratwatte, and so on have signed their names in the Nayakkar King’s ethnic language (Tamil) in the Kandiyan Treaty. That very clearly shows that the Nayakkars (Tamil) rulers did not serve the Sinhala interests but they made sure that even the Sinhala chiefs/ministers learn their (kings) language (Tamil).

          “..succession crisis emerged upon Narendrasinha’s death in 1739. The king had one son – Unambuve Bandara – by a Sinhala consort. However, succession to the Kandyan throne was reserved exclusively for those of kshatriya ancestry on both their mother and father’s side, and Unambuve’s mother had been of a lower caste. With the support of the bhikku Weliwita Sarankara, the crown passed to the brother of one of Narendrasinha’s senior wives, a member of the Telugu-speaking Nayak house from southern India.[15] He was crowned Sri Vijaya Rajasinha later that year…” Wikipedia

          Pl. read more on those Nayaks & their dynasty. Those Telugu ran parts of Tamil Nadu as well, even today Telugu is 03 rd most spoken language in India after Hindi & Urdu.

          Speaking Kings language by his ministers is understood as later others spoke English.
          Those Adopted Sinhala Kings did no wrong to our country, but indeed all the good by protecting Kandyan Kingdom until 1815, thereby Sinhala Culture & Buddhist Hindu religions & Muslims in safety, until civilized English arrived , they too were made to sign agreement to protect our heritage & English indeed protected “Tooth relic” as well & Kandyans remained Buddhist & no force was used to convert them to any other religion.

      Hey calm down ela kola. No need to get your blood boiling. The question put is perfectly legal. Try to understand what he is saying before you jump the gun. Do you know or believe your ancestral lineage without reservation them to be of pure Sinhala Buddhist origin, without any mix of Tamil, Christian or Muslim connection? So he is asking if we can say the same of our own country’s leaders, those who are now in the past and those who are to come in the future. What guarantee is there? As an example, he refers to Obama. 25 years ago, no one would have ever thought America would one day have a black African American to be their First Citizen. But it has happened against all the odds. What is there to prevent the same thing happening in the context of Sri Lanka.

      Dear Dr.Jagath Asoka,

      “I am writing this article to find out whether the Sinhala-Buddhists in Sri Lanka would elect a well-educated, suave, Sinhala-speaking Tamil—someone similar to Mr. Lakshman Kadirgamar—as our President in Sri Lanka.”

      Sinhala Buddhist still suffers from Monk Mahanama Monk racism and Myths.

      In Sri Lanka Sinhala Theravada Buddhists are not ready for it yet after 2,300 years of Buddhism. May be if it was Jainism, instead of Buddhism or Hinduism, there would have been hope.

      The Govigama Buddhists did not even wanted to ordain a Karave, as a Monk. He had to go to Thailand to be ordained. The Govigama Buddhists did not even wanted a Sinhala Karave, Sarath Fonseka as the President.

      So for now, only Sinhala Govigama Buddhists Qualify.

      Before, this happens. there are many, many bridges to cross.

      1. Separation of Temple, Church and Mosque, like in the USA, France and Turkey.

      2. Removal of Buddhist Monk Hegemony, and the removal of Monk-Ruler Axis.

      3. Formation of an Egalitarian society, not a racist and religion based society as we have now.

      4. Then it is possible.

      Has anyone achieved Nirvana, Nibbana, Samsara, and Rebirth after all these many years? No.

      Has anyone got to Heaven, Hell, Limbo, or Purgatory after all these many years? No.

      DeJa Vu….

      The problem with Ela kolla is, at a very young age, since all his neighborhood started calling him avajathaka, a Buddhist monk picked him up and made him the temple boy (abitiya). Starting from the Loku (big) monk to all the Podi (small) monks at the temple, he was molested day and night. Due to that depression, he started writing gibberish.

        So Ela Kolla was one of the victims of the Monks. Have pity on him. He needs help like many others.

        She sent her grandson to school with the idea of providing him with proper education to make him a good person. The Buddhist monk in charge of the temple asked her to send the child to the temple and she sent him there because they were poor. There was no possibility for them to pay the money for tuition fees. That was the reason why they sent the boy to the temple school.When the child began to refuse going to the temple school so adamantly, grandmother had to look for the reason. It was then only that she discovered that the child who was sent to learn good behavior, ethics and Buddha’s Dharma from the monk had in fact been abused by the monk

          “Peking knew that the serf-owning nobles hated the idea of any reform of serfdom, and hardly dreamed what socialism was; that even the serfs, hungry and tortured as they might be, were bound in soul by age-old suspicion of the Hans and by a religion which taught that their misery was direct result of their karma, a destiny decreed by their sins in a past incarnation, and therefore to be borne with patience in the hope of a better next incarnation. Tibet’s serfs dared not sit down in the same room with nobles, nor face them directly on the road; they had no dream of what “freedom” might be. Peking counted on the political and economic measures that would slowly knit Tibet to the rest of China and on winning at least part of the nobles to the knowledge that even for them, serfdom did not offer a good life, and that they might better sell their estates to the central government. Most of all, Peking counted on the changes that would grow in the souls of serfs through contact, even distant, with China’s dynamic life.”

Further Sinhala is not a pure blood, its mixed with Indian blood to start with then with the Portuguese, Dutch and English blood. Now those European blood is also not pure they too are mixed with Scandinavian, Italian, Spanish and other nationalities. So we are all an “Achcharu”.

      Jim Softy,

      There is nothing wrong with Buddhism, as it is a belief, more rational than the other beliefs. Even Buddha said something like that. He wanted to differentiate between the belief and the truth. The Problem is with Sinhala Buddhism belief, the racism that is associated with it, the core problem in Sri Lanka. Too bad, Lanka should have been Jain or Hindu ( like Bali, Indonesia)and peaceful, minus the Monk Hegemony and Monks running Amok.

    Jagath,
    I have read your article up to “So, if we were to hold a referendum, would the Tamils in Sri Lanka say no to Elam?”

    We need to ask the Tamil Diaspora as well.

    I agree with most of you what have written above this sentence.

    Just few days ago we had an election in NP. In which TNA has won the election with huge majority. You know what is in their manifesto.
    What about the govt talking to TNA and resolve the issues within a set time.

    What about govt implementing what is in LLRC?

    When did the Tamil start asking for Eelam and why?

    Tamils first tried to live together in a unitary form of government with the Sinhalese community. When the Federal Party stood for ***elections in 1952, Tamils overwhelmingly voted for the Tamil Congress which supported a unitary state***.

    After much discrimination and oppression, Tamils voted overwhelmingly for the Federal Party in 1956. Two parliamentarians who stood for separation in that election were soundly beaten. ***At that time, therefore, Tamils preferred a Federal form of government to separation***.

    ***In 1956 a bill to make Sinhalese the only official language of the country was passed in parliament over Tamil protests****. This was followed by island wide pogroms against Tamils in 1956 and 1958. The Prime Minister described the permanent posting of the armed forces in the North East after 1960 as an ***‘army of occupation.’*** The national flag was chosen with a prominent Sinhala lion and the national anthem is in Sinhalese.

    Two pacts to provide autonomy to the Tamil areas, signed between the Tamil
    Federal Party and the Sinhala party in power at that time were abrogated unilaterally by the respective governments following protests by the Sinhala party in opposition in 1957 and 1965.

    In 1972 a new constitution was enacted without Tamil participation. The new constitution made the country a Republic, made Buddhism the foremost religion and eliminated the Senate, appeals to the Privy Council, and Section 29 which had given some protection to minorities.

    Due to their inability to obtain any redress, and continued discrimination and numerous anti-Tamil pogroms,*** in 1976 all Tamil parties joined together and passed a resolution asking their Parliamentarians to seek the formation of a separate Tamil state in the Homelands of the earlier Tamil Kingdoms. This was the Tamil people’s mandate to their representatives****.

    At the next elections in 1977, and ever since then, this mandate has not been changed.

    The Government enacted a new Constitution in 1978 creating an all-powerful executive president. Again the Tamil representatives did not participate in the constitution’s drafting. President Jayawardena said that under this constitution he had the power to do anything except change a man into a woman. ****The UK’s Daily Telegraph quoted Pres. Jayawardene as having said “I do not care what the Tamils think, but my Sinhalese people will be happy.”****** He also introduced the Prevention of Terrorism Act, described by International Jurist Paul Seigart as the worst act of its kind in the world, including apartheid South Africa.

      Anpu,

      Your historical data gives support to thee core problem in Sri Lanka as

      Sinhalese Buddhist Racism.

      So, any solution need to address this core problem.

      We all know what the core problem is, and both the Sinhala and Tamils need to be creative to com up with a solution.

      It will not come internally from the politicians and monks. Like the 13A, most likely it will have ti be externally imposed.

      Remember Afghanistan and Iraq? Cyprus? Yugoslavia and many others?

    Jagath Asoka:

    Don’t you think that you an unemployed, shameless A.H. with no self respect at all.

    I can not imagine if you were born in Sri Lanka. If you were born in the USA for Sinhala -christian parents I can believe that.

    I am saying that because your first article was scolding BBS with derogatory language. You, SUNAKA Pothakaya (I give some respect to you here) did not want to understand only after 1000 years or so some Sinhala buddhists are fighting back against the aggressive invasion of the two major foreign cultures – viz, christianity and Islam – over the buddhist civilization in Sri Lanka.

    Your second article was about the oral tradition of buddhist teachings. You said, only christian oral tradition to be acceptable. Learn: Pali Canon is completely of Lord buddha’s teachings. On the other hand, your bible has only occasional and supposed to be statements made by Jesus. Most of the content is by his disciples. Quran: no need to remember as you are a Christian and you want to get rid of Buddhism first and then want to come to Islam.

    Now, thirdly, you want to have a Tamil vice president in Sri Lanka. You are just SCUM.

            Gamini,

            “Alan Norway is the cat’s paw of the Americans as the Americans never show their hands involvement anywhere in all “

            Very well said. Specific Examples.

            1. The Norwegian Parliament, The Storthing, gave the Noble Peace Prize to Henry Kissinger, the War Criminal, the Christmas Bombing War Criminal.

            The Trial of Henry Kissinger
            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Trial_of_Henry_Kissinger

            2. BBS was funded through Norway, by USA, by Christians so that Sinhala Buddhists, BBS, they will attack the Muslims, instead of Christian Evangelists,and kill two birds in one stone. Muslims and Sinhala Buddhists.

            The Sinhala Buddhist modayas, fell for it.

            “Sinhalaya Modaya, Kawum Kanna Yodaya.”

            The Sinhalese are fools. The are great at eating sweets.

            The Norwegians knew that. So they funded BBS.

            3. The Norwegians also had a great role in supporting LTTE and making them respectable in Europe and the West.

              Amarasiri ,

              This is well known truth in the world. We have experienced this last 30 years war history in Sri Lanka. i born in 70’s…..but something i got it in my brain to think about.

              Taliban created by America in Afghanistan……now Taliban is fighting against America……..So, CIA created Pakistan Taliban terrorism now, which has no connection with Afghan Taliban. All the Pakistan Terror groups are funded by CIA. And they promote Islam for their terrorism activities which is against in islam (Sue-side is completely prohibited in Islam). So, these terror group have no religion.

              Pakistan is very low literacy countries in the world….so easy to fool them. But i wonder how come these sinhala Buddhist becoming fools in Sri Lanka since Sri Lankan literacy level is 90%. We know BBS is uneducated buggers who run the show. I know who is Dilantha withanage and his history.

              One think is very clear…..CIA made a mess in Pakistan and very soon in Sri Lanka also will happen the same thing. They fooled the Tamils….and their life became mess now. If Sinhalese failed to use their brain now in future Sri Lanka will become another Pakistan. We can call it as MARAISTAN…………..

      Jim Softy, if you are a Buddhist, the way you talk, people who now call themselves Buddhist will be looking to other Religions for Salvation. I am, what you would call a ‘Sinhala Buddhist’, and I would be ashamed to be seen as a Buddhist if this is supposed to be the Way Buddhists Talk and Act. What about Meththa and Karuna and all the other Wise Words that the Buddha Taught? He saw the Good in everyone, even Ordaining ‘Low Caste’ Hindus who were not allowed into Hindu temples at the time. The Buddha did not see people as Sakyas or Koliyas, Biharis, Nepalese, Gujaratis, etc etc.
      If you remember, He asked the Sakyas, (his own Clan) and Koliyas who were fighting over the Water in the Rohini River, whether Water was more valuable than Human Blood?
      What do You, as a Buddhist, think about this Jim Softy?
      Is a Label such as Tamil, Sinhala, Hindu, Muslim, Christian, or Buddhist more valuable than Human Blood? It is people like you and Adolf Hitler who start Wars. Do you take the precept of “Panathi Patha” every morning and evening? Do you know what it means?

        Jim Softy represents Mara. He wants to destroy Buddhism from the Inside like the BBS, Sinhala Ravya and others.

        All his did at Dhamma Pasela, School, was paint Children’s Books. He has not heard about the Tipitaka, the 4 Noble, Truths, the 8- Fold Path and the 5 precepts.

        Now he follows BBS, the Agents of Norway and the West, to destroy Buddhism and use Sinhala Buddhists to attack Muslims and Self destruct, so that the West can prevail in the current neo-colonial times.

    You touch upon the racism of Sri Lanka; all I can say is not enough can ever be written on the: blatant , subtle and covert racism , bigotry and discrimination of SubContinents against other SubContinents, most especially against those who of dark skin and soft / non Caucasoid features who mostly descend from ancient pre Indo-Aryan groups. Most Sri Lanka are mostly from this old stock with some slight admixture from invading Eurasians and West Asians.

    SubCon groups professing origins outside of the SubCon and MiddleEastern groups are blatantly hypocritic when it comes to racism and like to speak as if it is Westerners who the ultimate racists when the opposite is true.

    BBS is just the usufull proxy of Gota. Though I have to say there is some genuine concern of Buddhists for their religion because both Islam and Brahmincal Hindusim are genocidal and Buddhism to a great extent has been exterminated by both, atleast as far as the mainland SubContinent goes.

      I think it is not possible for this to be the case as long as there are racial parties like the TNA and SLMC that only cater to a single race in Sri Lanka.

        TNA is better catogorised as an Ethnic party because Tamils and Singhalese are not distinct races; they only speak languages from different linguistic groups but Singhala has a lot of Tamil and Dravidian influence in it.

        The reason the TNA exists is because the major SL parties are defacto Singhalese parties so why shouldn’t Tamils have a Tamil Party. It is the same reason why the USA has a Black Entertainement Televison channel, because all the other channles are defacto White Channels . Currently even BET is owned by Whites.

    The facts are stubborn – in every country, religion, more than race, plays a part. It is the unwritten truth – when will we ever see a non-catholic prime minster in Italy, for instance or a non-Buddhist PM in Thailand. Obama may have been blue, green or purple – he would not have been elected if he was not a Christian.

    I have never had an answer to the so-called ethnic problem – is it that we are to make Tamils special citizens, entitled for more privileges than other? The constitution provides for all citizens to be treated equally and that is what we need to see implemented correctly.

    The President has the Singhala Buddhist (now made to sound like a dirty word) vote sewn up – and that is the crux of the matter.

    Dr. JAGATH Asoka:

    The best way to respond to your question is how those Most Venerable and very intelligent – buddhist monks responded to STUPID – christian Priests’ questions in PANADURAA VAAADAYA ?

    Do you know about that or have you ever heard about that how the stupid Christian Missionaries were handled by some very intelligent and shrewd Buddhist monks ?

    “A Tamil President In Sri Lanka”

    So, my answer to your question is; the day when the Vatican (not the american church which is full of Homosexuals and HIV-AIDS infected priests)appoints a buddhist monk as the pope (the reason: JESUS is said to be a former buddhist monk).

      Yes, there are intelligent Buddhist Monks, and the most intelligent Buddhist Monk I am aware of is Gauthama, Buddha.

      Jim Softy, do you know Buddha’s teachings? Dhamma?

      Have you mixed them up with Mara’s teachings, Devdatta’s ideas?

      Have you heard about the 4 NT and 8 fold path? The 5 precepts?

    Dr. Jagath Asoka,

    It is possible in USA, like Barak Obama became President of USA which are civilized countries in the world also in India. In Sri Lanka it is not possible because of monk hegemony and Sinhala Buddhist Racism. And people are still not educated enough to think about human values………Majority of the Sinhala Buddhists are fooled by monks and politicians.

      Alan,
      What a half baked silly comment that was (in response to a comic write up by a toshpot like Jagath)!!
      Obama would not have become the president of the USA, had he contested from Africans for Legalising Terrorism Party or Terrorist National Alliance. He won because he contested from one of the two major parties. Whether Americans are civilised, prostitutes or brain washed is irrelevant in that context. Obama also had a positive factor in his white mother. Afro-Americans had such a hard time historically compared to any ethnic group in Sri Lanka, yet intelligent people like Obama ignored the past, joined a major party and rose through the ranks, just like ACS Hameed, Badiuddin Mahmood, Devanayagam or Kadiragamar. Until the British landed here, we had Tamil kings. Moreover, we did have presidents from minority groups but they came through the two major parties. When caste or class were stronger issues than race, Premadasa became the leader of the UNP and subsequently the country. So did Rajapakse in the other party. Kadiragamar came so close but the diaspora funded Prabha´s uneducated terrorist gang killed him out of jealousy. One cannot expect political parties bearing ethnic or religious identities to win elections like presidential. Presidents will never be elected from TNA or the Muslim Congress, or CWC or BBS or Hela Urumaya. 1978 constitution, more precisely the PR system contributed to the segregation of ethnic and religious groups as well. However, still anybody has the opportunity to be the president if worked through the ranks in one of the two major parties, just like in the USA.

        Imagine if you had no imagination what would things be like??

        Congress (Indira) Indira was shot and killed by sataji bodyguards and today we have sataji Manmohan of Congress (Indira) as PM.

        Narendra Modi is RSS but contesting as BJP the major party and he will win
        The IC recommended him because they are interested in trade with Mr Clean.
        What happened to the Haryana woman from Delhi who not only felicitated Rajapassa at BudhaGaya hoodwinked GTF and also said I shall shave my head if Sonia becomes PM??

    Hello there Jagath,

    Sri Wicrama Rajasinghe was Sri Lankan Obama. That was 400 years ago.

    Unlike your contry Sri Lanka never had apathied or slavery. The only time the island wittnessed slavery was when the Dutch shipped agricultural Vellala slave masters along with their coolies to manage cash crops in Jaffna.

    Its easy to get exited when a bunch of deceptive Nazi loonies run around sceaming “white vans” and “genocide” . You just have to visit and see for yourself really isnt it? Have you done that lately?

      If your knowledge is limited to Dutch slavery please go back in time. You could be a descendant of those Vellala Dutch slaves who served their masters in the South and had become pure proud Aryan Sinhala/Buddhist over the past 300 years.

          “WTF you know ?”

          I assure you I have no knowledge of WTF.

          Dim wit Jim soft

          Read what Pandit Vibhushana wrote in his comment:

          “Unlike your contry Sri Lanka never had apathied or slavery.”

          He was talking bull and he is no stranger to talking bull just like you dim wit.

          Have you ever read the two papers which I mentioned above. I am sure you never had the need to read them.

          Before start typing go read both articles the we can sit down and discuss the rest.

          I forgive you for your “bull”

            Native Vedda and Amarasiri,

            “As these revolts were suppressed, documents were found that showed them to have been inspired from Lhasa and organized through the monasteries as a “holy war” against Communism. “

            However, no matter what excuse politicians dream up for waging war, the underlying cause of all wars is economic in nature.

            Amarasiri all lamas are human and when they see money they leave the rosary and run except for a handful of Rinpoches who are were born into royalty and rich.

            Silence; the European author does what they do best the underlying cause of the revolt- economic. When I asked a Rinpoche (he had not plucked a flower in his life)why do you eat meat and like yak cheese he replied look around even grass does not grow in winter. Then it dawned to me there is enough fresh water to feed the whole of China. Oil is decreasing as a weapon and the new weapon is fresh water. So you see the hands of the west to divide and rule. Silence.

        Thanks for the reference. Jim Softy needs more Buddhist education.

        The Slavery and servitude was not restricted Sri Lanka Buddhist Temples and Monasteries alone. It was extensive in Tibet, Tibetan Buddhism, until the Chinese take over.

        TEMPLE SLAVERY IN ANCIENT SRI LANKA
        Much of the evidence on the system of servitude in ancient Sri Lanka is associated with Buddhist temples/ monasteries.’ The aim of this study is to bring together and analyse the records of the system of servitude that prevailed between the first and the eighteenth centuries of this era.’

        When serfs stood up in Tibet

        IV. THE MARCH REBELLION … Excerpts..

        “When the serf-owning rulers of a society in which serfdom had been the way of life for a thousand years, agreed in 1951 to move towards socialism under the leadership of Peking, the stage was clearly set for a long struggle. This must have been known to both sides from the start. Yet Peking’s Communists and Tibet’s serf-owners both signed that 1951 Agreement, and the Dalai Lama wired Mao Tse-tung that Tibet’s “officials, monks and people”, were giving it unanimous support. Both sides had reason for postponing struggle, both counted on the changes time might be made to bring.”

        “As these revolts were suppressed, documents were found that showed them to have been inspired from Lhasa and organized through the monasteries as a “holy war” against Communism. Printed curses against the Chinese Communists, found on dead rebels and behind Buddha pictures in monasteries, connected the rebellion with printing facilities in India.”…

          —————————————-­—-
          Before 1959, Tibet was ruled by theocracy and feudalism. Dalai Lama was on the top of this evil system. The slaves, consisting of 95% polulation of Tibet, had no any human right, and they were treated as animals. Please watch the video “Tibet: The Truth” by Monerax Hollywood Corp. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xsoc4-

          In 1959 Chinese government decided to completely abolish this brutal system, Dalai Lama and his armed followers rebelled. Don’t you think the theocracy and feudalism shouldn’t be abolished? I wish all of us could make their judgements based on the conscience of human being.

      “Dutch shipped agricultural Vellala slave masters along with their coolies to manage cash crops in Jaffna”

      You keep on harping on the above like a parrot but I remember when someone asked you to bring some relaiable evidence/source to prove it, you ran away and hid yourself, never came back.

      Shame on you man, if you do not have the balls to prove what you are saying, it will go as something you have invented from thin air.

      Do not make yourself a laughing stock in a public forum, prove your point.

        “I remember when someone asked you to bring some relaiable evidence/source to prove it, you ran away and hid yourself, never came back.”

        It isn’t just Vibhushana who does not respond but almost all readers who comment on history do it all the time.

        Vibhushana made an observation on Tamil Sangam Literature as if its a suspect material. When questioned as to which part of the collection he found objectionable, he went numb.

        The Tamil Kali-stani says Tamils of this island have had three thousand years of heritage. When I demanded to see the evidence he went ballistic and brought the roof down. I am still awaiting for his evidence.

    Sadly there is hardly any presidiental material to come by in Sri Lanka, Sinhala, Tamil or Muslim. Whatever happened to bring about this drought of learned, honourable statesmen / women. Plenty of racist around. Racism is a big vote getter. Even if one is not a racist it is better to remain silent and nod ones head than speak the truth and have hell to pay.

    Maybe in time to come a child will be born with no religon or race who will belong to the human race and believe in love for all malice to none. Maybe that child will be educated without being tainted by prejudice or bigotry ingrained in the educational system. Maybe this child will achieve high status and recognition without influence and resorting to unfair means. And maybe such a spotless person will be appointed to the high office of president without being bumped off assassins?

    “when will we ever see a non-catholic prime minster in Italy, for instance or a non-Buddhist PM in Thailand” Athula –

    Dear Athula re check your fact book or corroborate it with Wikipedia,for your convenience I reproduce below.
    “General (Ret.) Sonthi Boonyaratglin (Thai: สนธิ บุญยรัตกลิน, RTGS: Sonthi Bunyaratkalin) (born 2 October 1946) is former Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Thai Army and former head of the Council for National Security, the military junta that ruled the kingdom.[1] He is the first Muslim in charge of the mostly Buddhist army.[2] On 19 September 2006, he became the de facto head of government of Thailand after overthrowing the elected government in a coup d’état.[3] After retiring from the Army in 2007, he became Deputy Prime Minister, in charge of national security”

    I have no doubt that the erudite gentleman Kathirgarmar would have served us well as either the Prime Minister or the President. His stint as Foreign Minister was exemplary. Sri Lanka needs more politicians of his calibre in all communities, who can think of all citizens as kith and kin, and NOT by the lot we are lumbered with today, who cannot think beyond their religion, ethnicity, caste etc.

    Jagath Asoka,

    Here is a small true story:

    A young Tamil doctor married a Sinhalese doctor from her batch and worked together in Colombo several decades ago. I met them as a happy couple and they entertained me for dinner when I visited them.

    They gave birth to a boy and the mother died in childbirth. The father married a Sinhalese nurse, who also looked after the boy – gave a Sinhalese name and brought him up. Everything is fine up to that.

    When the boy was in medical college a professor discussed a case study of a misadventure by the gynecologist/anesthetist during a Cesarian operation on a Tamil woman. His batch mates told him its his mother. He couldn’t believe it because he was sure his mother was Sinhalese.

    He went home and confronted his father: He said yes, your mother is a Tamil. Then the young boy asked the senior doctor, how come my birth certificate doesn’t say so? The senior and his wife have doctored the certificate to look respectable.

    This story corroborates what Jagath says! A similar thing could have happened it it was the other way about, I am sure.

    We already have a Tamilian president.

    He speaks like a Tamil, looks like a Tamil (a bit fairer to be Tamil though), only develops Tamil areas, allow LTTE TNA to win elections.

    There will not be a better Tamil president than Rajafucksa.

    One day this will happen but not today or in our life time. The reason being our children do not see colour. Only in countries where the civil society has not developed (although these societies call themselves civil) the colour, race and religions are major issues. If all of us in this world do DNA, and very soon for medical reasons, like blood tests being taken before treatment, DNA tests will be conducted and at that point of time all of us are going to be surprised how mixed we are.

    Further there are only two theories how humans came to this world, one god created a couple, the other is we evolved from mammals which existed 85 million years ago. In both these theories the original gene pool would have been from one or few sources which means we all have common genes. So we are not different just because we are of different colours, and speak different languages or follow different religions.

    Even in Sri Lanka every family, may not be in the immediate family, but definitely in the extended family circles there are mixed marriages. We are all an Achcharu.

      DNA tests have already been done on Sri Lankans, and unsurprisingly the Singhalese and Tamils are very similar to each other ,to South Indians and to Bengalis.

      Not surprising since most Northern India was mostly Dravidian and Munda speaking prior to Indo-Aryan invasions/colonisation and what happened was language shift of the native populace from Dravidian and Munda to speaking Indo-Aryan languages.

        PalmSquirrell, Tamils are not Aryans they are Dravidians. IF Sinhalease have the North Indian blood they are Aryan blooded. But at the same time over the years due to invasions and inter-marriages the bloods got mixed. In fact if the blood of the coastal sinhalese population is tested the DNA would find Portuguese, Dutch, British, Arab, and African DNA. Simiarly if the central hill sinhalese are tested you will find Aryan, Dravidian, Portugese, Dutch and English DNA. So none of us are pure. That is why we have fair Buddhist Monks.

          Where did I say Tamils are Aryans? No such such comment was made by me.

          You are also mistaken in thinking that just because Singhalese have their founding in the North and speak an Indo Aryan prakit, they are Aryan. If speaking an Indo Aryan language makes one racially Indo-Aryan then all the Black,Asian, Arab , Polynesian and Jewish Americans are English because they speak English. If Southern India had lost its battle resisting North Indian attempts to exterminate Dravidian languages and replace them with Hindi, do all South Indians majically become Aryans.

          Since when does having a small % of Aryan genetic material make one an Aryan? So we now discount the genetic contribution from the Pre-Aryan inhabitants who make up the bulk of the gene pool.

            Palm Squirrel I agree with you.
            What is so good about being Aryan? Was Hitler better than anyone else when he claimed to be an Aryan?
            All of us originally came “Out of Africa” Why do we not claim to be of African Blood. We have to be Logical and Rational about what our background is. People did not know about DNA and Genetics when they made up the Aryan Myth. As far as I understand, it happened when Humans ceased to be Hunter Gatherers, and settled down in River Valleys to grow their own food.

    Dr Jagath Asoka,
    Your piece was a ‘tickler’ and you have the answers from some racist singhala countrymen of yours.It has TICKLED them to a Raging FURY.Did I expect them to write otherwise- NO.At this point it shows how shallow their minds are,laced wih hatred most vile.
    These attributes are dead against Budha’s philosophical teachings.

    Anpu has given a very clear picture of our history.

    I want to be clear – this is my own opinion whether anyone likes it or not here it is.

    Has anyone – especially a Singhala budhist or the Yellow robed respected budhist priests ever heard A TAMIL whether Hindhu or Christian ASPIRING TO BECOME THE PRESIDENT/PRIME MINISTER OF SRI LANKA.?

    NEVER.

    So ?.Be our guests and fight your battles for the President’s post.

    The Tamils want to live with Peace and Dignity.They have not been given this by succesive governments of Sri Lanka.Hence a HOMELAND.In their minds they were never a minority,keep in mind the Tamil Kingdom?.

    I see the ‘tickled’ are the foolish singhala friends.As usual they fell right into a trap.

    No,a resounding NO.
    Keep your Presidents going and be happy with your choice.

    Good luck with your future Singhala Budhist Presidents and I can see you southerners are very happy with your present President.
    Let go – you live in fear that some day the Tamils will find their homeland and live in Peace and Dignty.
    And us- left to be seen or meet over and through the fence for good trade and a calm prosperous living.
    Adios !

        Tamil is a world wide language. Many speeches have been already made in Tamil. Quiet rightly Rajapakse felt that it is an honour for him to addres the U.N in Tamil. He is not doing a favour to Tamils or to the Tamil languag. Tamil language is the oldest language and does not need patronising from him ro for that matter from Sinhala racist like you

        will not bother to know what language he was muttering – all the time looking at his set-up audience of bootlickers. It is unlikely there were facilities in the automatic translating equipment to translate Sinhalese. This trick is as clever as the
