An Attempt To Turn Me Into A Dr. Shafi !

By Dayan Jayatilleka

Dr. Dayan Jayatilleka

I was shocked to see on the 6:55pm Hiru News on Tuesday Oct 29th 2019 (yesterday) a media briefing by a few MPs described as Catholic MPs of the SLPP, in which one of them, notably Arundika Fernando, accused me of conspiring with Minister Mangala Samaraweera and someone named Thusitha Halloluwe to engage in false propaganda which implicates Presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa in the Easter Sunday terror bombings. Not a shred of proof is presented for this accusation. The accusation itself is totally false in every single aspect. I am not engaged in any effort with anyone to implicate any Presidential candidate in the Easter Sunday massacres. Like most others, especially Catholics, I eagerly await the appointment of a High-powered Independent Commission to investigate all aspects of that atrocity and the backgrounds and motivations of all those who may be involved, be they individuals or agencies, domestic and/or foreign. I have not had any contacts or communication with Minister Samaraweera for at least 15 years. As for the other gentleman named, I am afraid I don’t know who he is.

I was also shocked to see a video (named Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna, Anuradhapura) of a speech by Dr. Channa Jayasumana, the gentlemen who went on television triggering the Islamophobic panic concerning Dr Shafi, repeating the same accusation about me concerning a plot to accuse Gotabaya Rajapaksa of the Easter attacks. Apart from the anti-Shafi campaign regarding ‘fallopian tubes’, Dr. Jayasumana is also known for his ultranationalist propaganda performances in Geneva. 

I was also horrified to see a video of Dr Wickremabhu Karunaratne of the opposing political camp, alleging that as a key “pundit” and “advisor” of the Rajapaksa camp “for ten years”, it was significant that Dr. Dayan Jayatilleka had now expressed suspicions about Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s supposed complicity in the Easter attacks. Manusha Nanayakkara of the same camp has repeated this on ‘Vaada Pitiya’. This too is the same dastardly disinformation.

The sole sliver of a fact behind all this is that having watched the revelations regarding the Islamophobic campaign and elections made on TV by former Army Commander Mahes Senanayake, and seen in passing a post on my Facebook wall on the chain of events involving the Easter massacre, the Islamophic campaign on television and the issue of the candidacy, I had shared it on my FB without any comment, let alone endorsement or approval. I share many posts which appear on my FB wall but if I agree with the sentiments, I say so. In this case I did not—and desisted from any comment whatsoever. If for instance I share a post with a quote from the movie ‘Joker’ or a ‘Game of Thrones’ character, it does not mean the quote is attributable to me, or that I share or approve of the sentiments. However, that re-post which bore the source of the original post, was then turned into a prominent fake news story on LankaCNews which falsely attributed to me the view that Gotabaya Rajapaksa was responsible for the Easter attacks! I immediately posted a rebuttal in red, which said ‘Fake News Alert’.

    Dr. Dayan Jayatilleka,

    RE: An Attempt To Turn Me Into A Dr. Shafi !

    So, you agree that the Dr, Shafi incident is all fake. That Fake was created by the SLPP, to canalize in the Islamophobia following the Easter terrorism. Was Goatabaya behind it, in the chain of events? What about the Oct 26th coup?

    “o engage in false propaganda which implicates Presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa in the Easter Sunday terror bombings. “

    Is it really false propaganda? What about the more than 70 crimes committed and Gota associated crimes? Fake news? Some are in the courts

    Gota Supporters Attack YouTuber Over Video Of Thowheed Jamat’s Abdul Razik Expressing Support For GR. They were funded by Gota.

    https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/gota-supporters-attack-youtuber-over-video-of-thowheed-jamats-abdul-razik-expressing-support-for-gr/

    Gotabaya is the Fake Patriot. This is NOT Fake news. It is coming from Sarath Fonseka.

    Why do you want Gota as a President ? Because you are a shill of the Rajapaksa Mafia? Let us hope, Sri Lankans, mean IQ 79, will use ciommons sense to see through these Rajapaksa crooks and their cronies.

        The Veddhas can thank their lucky stars that the Sinhalese are nice people. If the Sinhalese did what the Canadians, Americans and the Australians did to the indigenous people, through mass genocide, buggering them through their Amude inside Residential schools and getting them hooked on drugs and alchohol, there wouldn’t have been a single Veddha to foul mouth the Sinhalese using Online forums.

          Not to mention the tolerance shown to Kalaveddahs.
          .
          The Veddahs are not so bad, because they keep to their reservations. But the Kalaveddahs are everywhere, on tree branches in the daytime and urinating, defecating and fornicating in the ceilings of Sinhala dwellings in the night. No rent paid. And no cleaning done.
          .
          In short disgusting!

        Eagle Confused Eye,

        Ringing in your ears?

        10 Causes of Ringing in Ears

        Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, is the perception of sound when there is no external sound present. It is not a condition by itself but instead a symptom of an underlying cause. Many patients describe the sound as a high-pitched ringing, but it may also be a clicking, buzzing, whooshing, roaring, or hissing. The sound can vary in volume and can be either unilateral or bilateral. In most patients, tinnitus occurs gradually. It can significantly impact the quality of life, causing depression, anxiety, and loss of concentration.

        The diagnosis of tinnitus is based on the patient’s history. Questionnaires also help assess how much the tinnitus is impacting the patient’s quality of life. The diagnosis can be supported with a neurological examination, an audiogram, and medical imaging if necessary. In rare cases, the clinician can hear the ringing sound using a stethoscope. (This is known as objective tinnitus.) Prevention of tinnitus involves avoiding loud noises and seeking appropriate treatment to prevent the condition from worsening.

        Treatment and management of tinnitus include talk therapy, the use of sound generators, hearing aids, tinnitus counseling, cognitive behavioral therapy, and tinnitus retraining therapy. As of 2013, there is no known effective medication. Most patients are able to tolerate the ringing well, but approximately 1 to 2 percent of patients are significantly impaired by it.

      Dr. DJ cannot be so naïve as to write : “revelations regarding the Islamophobic campaign and elections made on TV by former Army Commander Mahes Senanayake, and seen in passing a post …………. I had shared it on my FB without any comment, let alone endorsement “
      Any teenager could tell him that a person shares a post on FB because he likes it. How many Buddhists share pics of Jesus Christ on FB for example?
      That settled, why is DJ being coy? He was once openly critical of Gota on the BBC. Anyway, support for the Premadasas is one consistent thread in his otherwise convoluted political history going from separatist terrorist to Premadasa -populist to self-proclaimed diplomatic genius and then Mahindra lackey.
      Oh narcissism, what things are done in thy name !

      3 – 4 days after the bombings I said the selection of targets defied logic ……. and Gota had something to do with it ……… that was months before Gota’s connections to the bombers came to light!

      Dayan.. we are curious. You are being paid by our tax money to serve our countries interests in Russia…yet we see FB posts almost every hour??

      Is it legal and ethical for you to be promoting any one candidate?

      How do you have the time to be on your FB so much??? Don’t you ever work??

      You’re an embarrassment and a huge disappointment

      We know you distanced yourself from the Gota camp whilst here since they didn’t give you the recognition you wanted at Viyathmaga.

      At that point many of us felt sad for you, but it’s now apparent the Viyathmaga folk read through you , and knew you just couldn’t be trusted.

      At least now, stay away from promoting your preferred candidate , or alternatively resign from your post and come join his campaign.

      Your can’t have it both ways! Disgusting

    This criminal Rajapaksa mafia are so unashamedly ruthless, heartless and brutal they will stoop to anything to achieve their goals. We have already heard of the many murders, disappearances, abductions, threats and assaults for which they may be responsible. We also saw how they incarcerated our war hero FM SF and got rid of CJ SB in a hurry. They are thugs, hoodlums & hooligans and will employ any method to achieve their ends (remember what they did during the 52 day siege?). They are a law unto themselves. They have enough ill gotten cash to splash around at the vulnerable to achieve their goals.

    Their goal in this instance is to capture power again so they can rule with absolute power and authority in the style of a fascist and dictator and in the process line their own pockets and sweep all court cases against them (and their slave henchmen) under the carpet. Basic human rights will be thrown to the dustbin as is done in their favoured ally, Communist China. Sri Lanka will become a ‘colony’ of Communist China under their rule. The provisions of the Constitution, the laws & regulations will not mean anything to them. This is our past experience of their sordid rule.

    Haven’t they inflicted enough damage and misery on this Country and its inhabitants already during the 10 years in power? Why are they asking for another term? Wasn’t 10 years long enough to plunder the Nation of its wealth?

    Folks, awake to these realities and use your valued franchise judiciously and wisely.

      Gamini, you say ‘Their goal in this instance is to capture power again so they can rule with absolute power and authority in the style of a fascist and dictator….’

      Now tell me Gamini, isn’t that what the UNP did under JRJ? Can’t you recall him scrapping the General Election for a referendum so that he could rule for 17 years . Can you recall his signed undated letters of resignation from his ministers? Can you recall Premadasa’s UNP raping, torturing and killing tens of thousands of young men and women?

      People like you blindly support Ranil/Gota/ MR whatever their crimes and refuse to open your eyes. You can only see the good points in your favourite and you ignore all their undemocratic acts. All you people do is point the finger at your opponents.
      That is why there is no future for this country.

    “Dr. Jayasumana is also known for his ultranationalist propaganda performances in Geneva. “
    Ha ha ha ha…. Pot is calling the Kettle black.

    Let me ask a question- Did Old King said or released a statement to Hiru or Channa or Arundika that Thero is not a person who would do things like that? You tell me whom you admire I tell you what is your path is! Did this guy said at Geneva that it was only Old Brother Prince was the War Criminal, but not the other Old Royal Members(especially Old King)? No! This guy saved the entire war crime family in Geneva. If you feed cobra with milk you get bitten too. Then why would you cry as you are an innocent, but cobra has bitten you.

    This guy opposed the Old Royal in 2015. He was consulting Ranil in CT how to beat Old Royals. Then, in February 2015, he went to Narahenpita meeting and sat in the stage in the front draw. Then he posted that Picture in CT. This time he could not write many essays unlike in 2015 as his jobs in Moscow would be gone.

    Isn’t that Old King selected the Old Brother Prince as Slap Party Candidate. This guy supported always the Slap Party. He likes the candidate or not, still he is obligated to support the party’s Candidate. Look at what the Communist Pakkaya did. He challenged even to quit the Joint Comedy Club if the Old Brother Prince got selected. Then published an apology for his mistake and joined the Old Brother Prince’s team.

    What Thero may be thinking is that Old Royals are capable of hoodwinking the Modayas crowd, but he could do that to anybody by supporting the Slap Party and by rejecting their Candidate, now.

    Dayan (selfish opportunist) fits into the Sinhalese adage “Kanta hitunama ‘Kabaragoyath’ penne ‘Talagoya’ wagey” (When one feels like eating even the [poisonous] water monitor also appears like the [relished] ‘iguana’).
    Ranil totally distrusts Dayan and he does not consider Dayan for two hoots, Ranil completely rejected him. Even though Dayan was acting like a Rajapakshe lap dog, the Rajapakshes were just using him (threw him away like a used condom once their goal was achieved). If Ranil had given this fellow a diplomatic post, Dayan would have changed his tune 180 degrees. However, when Sirisena went against Ranil, he took Ranil’s enemies and gave them something and that is how Dayan became a diplomat again. Sajith is different. Dayan has already worked for R. Premadasa and has some close relationship with Sajith’s family.

    Dayan,
    This denial is justified because Gota is a well known and very popular for lots of ab——– and –rders including Lasantha in our soil. He himself told the Srilankans not to ask questions of his past. A popular man and a diplomat like you know well the truth and your silence during this election itself proves that you don’t agree with Mahinda’s choice of the candidate. Even Sirisena could be a better choice for Mahinda’s future PM post but I don’t know what is the real motive of Mahinda. Mahinda might thought that Sinhalese are pools and believe whatever lies he make in propaganda.

    Poor Dr D J has finally twigged that Gota doesn’t love him anymore. The truth is that Gota never loved him. Yes, Gota used him, got what he wanted but then dropped him. (Gota’s like that, folks!) Oh, and by the way, Gota has a private fear of intellectuals, in case you all didn’t know.

    Dr D J surely understands what it is to be hoisted by your petard.

    Even if you didn’t say it, you know it is the truth. The whole world knows it is the truth. So it makes no difference if the reports are fake or not – except that you can forget about getting any patronage from Gota in future. In any case, he never trusted you though you were fawning over him when Viyath Maga was launched. You even said at the time the proudest moment in your entire life was being allowed to sit right behind the Rajapaksa Royals. But Gota will not fall for it. He knows you have another iron in the fire: Kili Maharajah’s Sajith Project. Now that is also in jeopardy. Sajith is pissed off thinking you’re trying to whitewash Gota. You can’t win, can you?

    This is a bitter lesson for Dr. Dayan Jayatilleka type of academics who chew bones or “muss kattuwa” that is thrown to them by MahindaR murderers. No matter what people say and rumours about SajithP’s father former president RanasingP, most are learning that the choice of Sajoth is safer with a person who values human life. I can assure you that the return to the Whote Van yugaya is coming if voters make the wrong choice. If anyone could do a Dr. Shafi to you Dr.J, you better consider yourself lucky because Dr. Shafi escaped alive. However, this is not what “they” have in store for you. Few weeks ago, they unleashed an attempt on the life MP Kumar Welgama. Today it will either be you or someone else who condemn these PIGS who masterminded the Easter Sunday massacre.

    We have seen your comment on Sarath Alwis that writing on support for Sajith by indirectly via JVP ; you appreciated that SA writing.
    We have no doubt about your double stand ? You were born for that .
    DJ was one of the key an adviser to Ranasinge Premadasa that ruthless regime was in power since 1988 to 1993 May 1st .
    Indeed that period of Ranasinghe P..was rule of gun-point .
    By and large that Premadasa’s model of assassinations has No an accountability…of that UNP’s shape of democracy. …encouraging by Western model of USA headed ‘democracy ‘
    The Rule of Premadasa’s UNP was brutality of Police State. It was continuation of JRJ -UNP that rule of Gun of politics that inevitable repression of citizens of
    Sri lankn since 1977………..1993 May .!@
    Like other Susil Siriwaradana of so- called creator of Janasviya Programmed you were in inner circle of Premadasa–regime. DJ was key policy an adviser to R.Premadasa …regime.

    DJ must be sensing Sajith is winning. Now to keep his position, or to get something he is trying his best. Many suspect Gota and his clan are behind Easter attack. DJ is going to take advantage of the situation. He is like a Hyena, try to thrive on carcasses. I still remember how the common people treated him at the Borella cemetery after Athulathmudali funeral. He deserved it then, he deserved the same treatment now for what he did since then. Everybody knows how he got his position in Russia from the traitor MY3.
