An Appeal To The People Of Sri Lanka

By Ahimsa Wickrematunge

Many people say that this election is a simple choice between democracy and dictatorship. What I see is more personal. I see a young child who grew up in the shadow of an invincible, incredible and beloved father. I see someone whose life was turned upside down the moment their father was murdered in a despicable and cowardly act of terrorism. I see someone who faced the terrifying challenge of trying to inch forward their father’s mission. In so telling the story of how candidate Sajith Premadasa came to be, I cannot escape the feeling that his journey, his anguish and his struggles have closely mirrored my own. The events that shaped Sajith Premadasa into who he is today resonate strongly with me because the same experiences and challenges made me who I am. At this election, one choice is a man forged in the same fires that moulded my own soul.

Ahimsa

The alternative is the coward who celebrated my father’s murder on television. Even Prabhakharan did not boast about his senseless slaughter of President Premadasa. But Gotabaya Rajapaksa could not hide his glee when a death squash killed my father. When evidence emerged linking the military to this attack, he did not promise to investigate or protect other journalists. He vowed to shield the perpetrators from justice. Only cowards meet words with bloodshed. In my lifetime, I cannot recall a challenge Gotabaya Rajapaksa has not fled. In the face of countless criminal charges, he has never proved his innocence. Instead, he has always wriggled out through delays and technicalities. When he was in power, those who crossed him were beaten, murdered or forced to flee. During this election campaign, he has avoided debating or confronting his opponents at all costs. When journalists ask tough questions, he looks to others to answer. His every public appearance is carefully scripted and choreographed by the media moguls whose families need him as President so they can escape their own trysts with justice. In times of adversity, he has fled to America, returning to Sri Lanka only when his family safely rolls out the red carpet.

I have never met or spoken to Sajith Premadasa, but even from afar, he seems different. His is not a path of least resistance. He fought his way into Parliament in 2000 and 2001 against all odds, soundly defeating Mahinda Rajapaksa in Hambantota. On January 31, 2003, while he was building his political career as Deputy Health Minister, Gotabaya Rajapaksa was renouncing Sri Lanka, pledging allegiance to the American flag and living the American dream.

Despite Sajith Premadasa’s role as a minister in this government, which has let down many of us who fought for justice, I have watched him distinguish himself through his deeds, not least of which defending the Constitution against his personal interests during the coup when the Rajapaksas tried to illegally seize power last year. We saw him fight for his party’s presidential nomination and forge a new path. He is not promising results beyond his control, but to get politicians out of the way and let the police and professionals do their job. That is all we can ask. In my mind, a man as candid, fearless and dedicated as him would make a remarkable president.

I am terrified that if Gotabaya Rajapaksa becomes President, many brave police officers, prosecutors, witnesses, judges and journalists who have crossed his path in the line of duty will find themselves on the firing line. Gotabaya Rajapaksa fans flames of extremism that set the country alight, and then promises that only he can put them out. Ten years ago, it was my father who tried to warn the country about him. Tomorrow it could be your father, or sister, or brother, or son or mother, husband or wife who speaks out against him, and becomes the next to die or disappear. The danger in relying on such a man to keep you safe is that no one can keep you safe from him.

I would feel safer under the presidency of a man who suffered horrifically at the hands of terrorists, not one who took a page out of their book and made others suffer for his own personal gain.

    Dear Ahimsa,

    Sri Lankan voters beware.

    Your appeal to the people of Sri Lanka is not to be a victim like your father from Gotabaya, just like the 11 children, countless others disappearing in white vans, Ekliyadoda etc., and use common sense and prevent being s victim yourself, your relatives, friends and others, so that the Rajapaksa Mafia can rule with criminality and corruption.

    Use history and common sense. That is why Gotabaya does not want to talk about the past.

      Wahabi Amarasiri,

      Gotabhaya speaks about the past from 1505-1948, without even opening his mouth.
      /
      The battle is between beneficiaries of that disgraceful invasive terrorist history of nearly 500 years (represented by people like Ranil Hamu), and those who want to drag our country out of that hole forthwith out of greed, like the Wahabis.
      \
      Gotabhaya speaks for us all, may be not for various anti-Sri lankan, anti Buddhist riffraff.

      My Dear Ahimsa,
      I think over 6.2 mio of voters would stand by you.
      just delayed is not forgotten.
      I have no doubt, the bugger would be caught by horns this time, wait and see.
      Once people decide to stand against them, in the next election, the bunch of the thugs are caught by horns.
      Our support is always with you. and no doubt, the Karma will punish them the bunch all at once this time.

    Sajith is the only alternative, Gota hora comes, all the criminals will party.
    Johnson ethanol, kudu duminda, basil commission, Gnanasara and rathna the human stud machine of Shafi fame.not to me soon the rapist and killer of thajudeen MR wife and children. Buddhist have to think long and hard do they want a mafia to control the country and eventually die like Zimbabwe or a country run on rule of law.

    Of.. Boy.. This is it….poor Nandasena.. Will he lose the Deposit too..-

    How Lucky Keselwatta Kid is to have this young Lady to assure his Election on the 11the hour .

    One hitch though..
    Keselwatta Kid’s nemesis Dr Ranil has declared that he will be the PM on the 17th to give Yahapalanaya Mk11.

    Keselwatta Kid has declared Field Marshall Sarath Fonseka as the Defence Minister..

    It is the same Dr Ranil who named Field Marshall Sarath Fonseka as the person who organized the Hit on Ahimsa;s Dad.
    And it is all in the Hansard.

    Even if Keselwatta Kid manages to arrest Nandasena though his Defence Minister who is none other than the Field Mrasahall as a return favour to Ahimsa. any prosecution will be difficult.

    I mean even a Village Proctor can get up and say My Lord . the PM of our Nation has pointed out the real killer .
    So how can My Lord convict Nandasena —

      I suppose one of the crosses that any person living in Sri Lanka has to be the uneducated yapping of someone like you who has learned to walk on his hind legs.
      Making fun of a young woman whose father was executed by your heroes, though, is really “over the top.”

        van der Poorten,

        What exactly are you trying to say – in your first para?

        The young lady’s “ piyaano” was murdered by the orders of none other than the Defence Minister wannabe – according to none other than the PM!

        You certainly seem to be still trying to learn to stand on ya hind legs!

      Make sure he does not lose his b***s.
      If and when the authorities (foreign or otherwise) decide to catch him by his b***s they will be very crossed with Nandasena if he doesn’t have both.

        Dear Native,

        What is your gut feeling , mate?..

        Will Dr Ranil allow Keselwatta Kid to sack him on the 17th?.

        How about Galleon Ravi the guardian and the body Guard of the Colombo Elite?.

        Will Galleon go to see Maha Aryawa with a bunch of Beetle Leaves and apologize ?.
        You know what I mean, Don’t you Native ?..

        Did you see the crowds disembarking at Banda International?
        Did your hear their Jayaweawa Chants?.

        But I didn’t seen any of your mates,

        Did Suren Surendran make a plea to your clan in Lankawe ?
        Wonder which Party he would have recommended because after that Ragahavan Dude said he and his people are not interested in Sivajilingam and Sampatha’r new 13Ds.

        BTW, you at least got your ” Crosses ” correct …

    Feel sad for you, for loosing your father, and now being used by the UNP for their pathetic propaganda and legal battles to stall Gota

    I’m sure you know that the person who may have killed your father is now on the stage of the candidate you support! You cannot be so naive as not to know that!!

      Words, your Nandesena murdered Lasantha in broad day light. If you think someone else gave orders to kill Lasantha, you must be living in a dream world. Do you truly want a murderer to come to power? Do you have children? Just imagine if you were murdered how your children will take it?

      I am a Tamil, I personally know so many families, where they lost their Dad’s to assassinations carried out by the dreaded LTTE, giving some lame excuses. I know what happened after the murders how these families were destroyed, have a heart before you write these to a child who still cries for her dad.

      There is nothing surprise that you do the same as Gota did that is to put the blame on others to escape the crime. It is 100 % true that Lasantha was murdered by ———. The whole Srilanka know this truth. Do you think ahimsa is supporting Gota?

      Would you lick the balls of Gotabaya even if your lovely ones would have been gunned down ? for sure, yes. tasteless bugger

    It is entirely up to Sinhalese masses to decide to vote for Sajith or Gota or AKD. It is is entirely upto Sinhalese people. If they want to vote for Gota, they are ready to give this nation to a corrupt dictator, they are ready to make poor people more poorest, they are ready to give this nation to most corrupt groups of people with Gota, All thieves are with Gota, because it is do or die for them, if they lose this election, they will end up in America that is why they need a win

    Dear Ahimsa,

    Not very happy you enlisted the US judicial system to prosecute the concerned…, but I do share your pain.

    Justice will be indeed served…, and sometimes it is a little delayed! And no force is greater than that of God…, so have faith!

    Love to you.

      Dear Ahimsa,
      I too agree with Mr Muhammed Fazi. We share your pain and unending frustration and maybe anger too at this injustice.
      There is a God who is your comfort and strength. Justice will be meted out. Do not give up and keep your courage high. I salute your greatness in writing this article. May you be blessed.

    Ooh, this’s not time to air the grief of an innocent child.

    People had given power & plenty of time to prosecute previous regime offenders to the GG formed in 2015 (in which Sajith was also a member).

    It’s their failure, that may have given injustice to Ahimsa.

    Please don’t market innocence in political platform.

    To : Ahimsa Wickeramtunge.

    Dear Girl,
    you don’t seem to want that your late father rest peace. It looks like that you wish to get your revenge on the Rajapaksa family and that some person or persons is behind your intentions.
    Your late father was to a certain extent a good and brave man to have confronted the former MR government but if he truly cared for you and his family he would not have gone to the extent of confronting the Devil.
    The Devil is not a mythical figure but a very powerful all dark being that roams the world looking for anything and everything he can devour.
    If you are looking for sympathy then it will all end one day leaving you to your loneliness and giving the Devil the chance to gloat over your failures and leaving him the power to confront you.
    You are a Buddhist so you don’t believe in Godly Judgement and Justice but that does exist and will exist for ever. That Justice knows no boundaries or barriers and will be meted to all in this world at some particular time in ones life, dead or alive.
    Leave your late father to Rest In Peace because by bringing up your quest for vengeance you will get nowhere and finally God’s Justice & Judgement will evade your cause.
    The Justice of God finally prevails.
    May God in all his Glory shine upon your sorrows.

    ” Lustitia autem Dei sublimioribus subdita”.

    Lasantha did not deserve to die, but face it, he was a tabloid journalist. People like him represent the very bottom of the totem pole of a democracy. As for GR’s glee over his death, that does not make the former automatically responsible.

        EA, Mahinda was friends with LW for 25 years. LW died because someone was afraid he would reveal sensitive military intelligence that implicated them. The best candidate is Sarath Fonseka; we know through his HiCorp dealings that he was a shady bugger. We also know SF is a loose cannon, an opportunist with no loyalty. He was ready to stage a coup with 400 army deserters to arrest the Rajapakses. He wanted to cooperate with the West and testify about fake “war crimes”, while at the same time promising the Tamils a federal state. His family was caught with looted money. In 2010, he was paying LW’s brother and Jansz one million rupees a week to write articles that supported his campaign. It is even possible SF had LW killed intentionally to frame GR; that is why he came out with poppycock about GR operating a “death squad.” GR used the Courts, not hit squads to go after his opponents.

    If for some reason Sri Lankans wear blind folders and ear plugs and vote for Gotabaya, then they will see the negative impact of which will also include loss of GSP+, International war crimes investigation, trade embargo by EU and USA, politicians raping and killing freely, all cases against any Rajapakse or their kudu mudalali / murderous supporters vanishing from the courts as their papers and files will vanish etc… If Sri Lankans want all this and more let them vote for Gotabaya the manifestation of evil.

      If the majority votes for these criminals again, it will not be because of ignorance. They have experienced the Rajapaksa reign, and know fully well what they are capable of. Poor people will be unable protest for clean water, ethnic violence, and journalists will be harmed, to mention just a few of their policies.

    There are thousands of Sinhala voters who are going to scarifies their franchise to the Devil called Gotha, having known his activities when he was in power. Even when the government has changed, he is being safeguarded by the powerful. Sri Lanka is not a place for a healthy life. Greediness for money, bribery and corruption, without peace and harmony among people, with hatred, without” love thy neighbour as thyself” attitude, without cheating one another for money, there are so many other things which are in want in Sri Lanka . It is doubtful, even Premadasa is going to solve these problems, although he promises to get rid of these abuses in Sri lanka. He is going to win with Tamil votes but he is not going to solve the Tamil problem either. The political culture and the behaviour of the people(all races) should change.

    This is an important passionate appeal to the voters. Will this article be available in Sinhala and Tamil for the vast majority that cannot/will not/ read this? I vividly recall Gotabaya Rajapakse’s response to a BBC reporter’s question: “Who is Lasantha?” Such arrogance!

    Can understand your situation . But the only problem the country faces is not Lasantha Wickramatunga.

    As a father of a daughter being born a proud Tamil, had no choice but to flee his motherland due to fear of an impending arrest on false charges after being arrested on false charges as a foreign employment agent I know very well the distrust and fear in the minds of many children if this super human beast rides into power on the 1th November 2019.

    As one writer Sri Lanka will be known as Sorry Lanka once most of world except a few nations similar to China, India, Russia and a few others the rest of the world of decent human being’s will shudder at the mere thought of their very valued citizens ever visiting or dealing with a sad sorry nation where it’s uncouth majority citizens who whilst sitting on their brains elect a mass murderer who as the world is very well aware reared sharks as his pets whilst being the defense secretary in his elder brother’s lawless government fed his white van victim’s and others fed them to his pets whilst watching on and clapping like a kid

    Hopefully sanity will prevail and on the 16th of November the rightful very very democratic candidate from the DNF will be given the keys to the throne.

    Wishing my land of birth all the best from the comfort and safety form one of the safest nations on this planet Australia.

    Please use your sacred vote sensibly

    All the best for next Saturday, R j.

    To kill a man the easiest way is to shot him hiding somewhere. LW was killed in broad daylight, on a busy public road within a high security zone using a dagger like thing. Killers on the advise of somebody higher-up wanted to do it openly and barbarically. That is to take revenge and teach a lesson to others. They thought they would be in power for ever and because of that were not afraid of consequences. Now they are not sure of their position and try to cover all those crimes by coming into power. Idiots want to give them power thinking they are the saviors of the idiots.

    Is a reminder necessary as to what the main ‘mantra’ was of MS’s platform in 2015? ‘ We will punish ALL wrong doers’. Obviously, MS has not fulfilled that promise, among others. MS was the Chief Executive (the buck stops with him) and MS has been the greatest disappointment to the 6.2m who voted for him (ofcourse the main objective of his candidacy of chasing away the Dictatorial and criminal MR regime, was achieved). His recent uncouth umbrage (in choicest Sinhala filth) which made the social media tells us something about his upbringing and character! Say no more! Had he fulfilled his promise, NGR / MR and the like will be behind bars by now.

    NGR, the barbarian, bigot, blockhead and dimwit is an alleged criminal not fit and suitable by any stretch of imagination to be elected to the highest Office in Sri Lanka. But yet there are ‘leeches’, ‘fanatics’, extremists, radicals, racists, ‘Nationalists’ and other (criminal) ‘Groups’, who think otherwise.

    This is a Democracy, so may the will of the majority of Voters prevail. The Country will get the President it deserves. May that President be one that will bring Peace, Harmony, Reconciliation and Prosperity to our Motherland.

    Voters, there is now a plea made by a victim of NGR’s many alleged crimes. Please use your franchise wisely, judiciously, aptly and appropriately.

    The latest election gimmick of the scoundrel is to run Social media campaigns pretending as Sinhalese and saying Gotabhaya does not need Tamil votes, Gotabhaya doesn’t need Muslim votes and Gota does not even need Christian votes.

    I appeal to all my fellow Christians not to fall for these tactics of the scoundrels. Your enemy is not the Buddhists. Your enemy is not Gota.

    You know who your enemy is. The one who massacred our people on April 21st 2019. Don’t let them create a rift between us and the Buddhists.

      You cannot erase the truth. Gota said that and he is the one who sponsored BBS and Rathna Thero in the campaign against Tamils and Muslim. The Bomb blast of April 2019 targeted Christians. Gota & Mahinda’s propaganda is against Tamils and Muslims. Thatiswhy they now attack TNA and Muslim politicians, not Sajith.

    Dear Ahimsa, I have hugged you hard in my mind. We all hope Gotabaya will not be elected. But mark my mind, Sajith will never ever deliver justice to you.
    He will never take the Rajapakshas to task.
    They are together in this.
    No one will be punished.
    No looter will ever be brought to justice. Nor a killer.
    I’m sorry.
    Love, GA

    The people who comment , presumably “Freeing” “GR” this “presidential candidate’ of any knowledge or complicity of Lasantha’s “Murder”. I would like to remind the “Reasoning” he (GR) produced in US courts relating to the case this Ahimsa” filed claiming compensation. The “Reason” as stated was: “This murder was the work of the State of Government of Sri Lanka. I as an Officer of that Government cannot be held accused or responsible” That is how he (GR) claimed “Immunity ” and got away. At a recent TV discussion (Sirasa “Satana”) one of the participants produced the copy of the “Judgement” and read it to the “Lawyer” – Mr. Susil Premajayantha – the person who represented this “Presidential Candidate” of “Pohottwa” – GR. He tried to “Side Track” the issue, but failed, because that copy of the Judgement was handed over across the table to him. Then as regards “White Vanning”, another “Lawyer” at another TV show “Aluth Parlimentuwa” (Thursday) quoted from Hansard and said: “There was no single case of “White Vanning” reported to Police as per a reply to a question tabled by a “Minister”. This idiot of a “Lawyer” did not know all the cases of “Abductions” and “Disappearances” were reported and investigated and even some have been accused and charged. Definitely, there is no “Whit Vanning” but in the process of investigations, how the persons were abducted in a “White Van” would come to light. But unfortunately, there was not a single in the panel to give such an explanation. Even in the case of questioning by a “Foreign Media” regarding the disappearances” of those in the camps, this “Presidential Candidate” of SLPP (GR) replied and said: “I did not know. There was an Army Commander who handled all those operations”. This is the same “Identical Defense” he provided in the case of Lasanth’s murder. That is how a “Criminal Mind” and a “Criminal” works.

    It is best if one of the popular media, create a website as “www.srilankavoteralerts” in all three languages and expose all the major politicians corruptions since about 1987. Although it is said
    that “one is innocent until proved” most of the evils of the politicians are white collar crimes carried out by the politicians directly or mostly on behalf of the politicians by the underworld criminals and others employed by them. They use their discretionary powers without leaving any form of proof. Karmic forces will follow sooner or later. The website should also include video clips of promises made by politicians, crimes committed and cases filed.

    Lasantha Wicramatunga is one who used Freedom everything in Sri Lanka for special Interest groups needs. Lasantha is not a CHRISTIAN saint.

    I feel sorry for you Ahimsa because your advisors around you are a bunch of idiots. This appeal must be made to the SINHALA MOADAYA who will always be a modaya!!! This is the curse of the county. I wish there were enough minorities combined here in this country to balance the numbers of this many Sinhala dolts in the country that could vote for nationalists or extremists. tic If not you too may be lynched into a white van and sent on your death ride no matter where you live in the world. Before you appeal to our local modayas, send a firing notice to your stupid lawyers in the state of California because Goata’s case should have been a taken by a Fedaral court that would have brought in FISA proceedings and pursued a a Mandamus writ to the Department of Homeland which Immigration Service (CIS is under), the State Department, as well as the Department of Justice (DoJ) to reveal Goatabaya’s citizenship status, and the committed fraud and obstruction of justice, bribe to judicial officers and tax evasion over money laundry and finally the citizenship renunciation. Only a Federal court would give a US court “jurisdiction” it needs to hear the case and put this Gotabaya bastard and murderer for good. Again, Ahimsa I wish you the very best and can never sympathize your grievance of a father who was assassinated by an agent of the USA.
