Archbishop Tutu’s Initiative For Sri Lanka Reconciliation

By S. Sivathasan

Archbishop Tutu has placed his name and prestige for the cause of reconciliation in Sri Lanka. With motives that are purest, he invokes the UNHRC to add a cutting edge to the Resolution. Towards this end, he urges the setting up of an Independent International Commission of Inquiry into war crimes and crimes against humanity committed in Sri Lanka. Joining him from across the world with as much conviction and equal force are 38 other society leaders and institutions of standing. Prominent among them are three Tamils enjoying the confidence of their community acquired through means that are overtly legitimate. In addition, resident as they are among the people, they have a stake in the future of the Tamils and of the country. Justice CV Wigneswaran, Chief Minister Northern Provincial Council, Hon.R. Sampanthan, popularly elected Head of the Tamil National Alliance, the acknowledged leader of the Tamils and the indomitable Bishop Dr. Rayappu Joseph, who has won the trust of all Tamils Hindu and Christian.

Concerned individuals and organisations are urging the UNHRC to throw in its full weight and authority in the counsels of the world to mete out justice to the Tamils. The strategy chosen is a potent resolution having enough teeth. The occasion selected is the March session this year in Geneva. The target is identified as reconciliation in Sri Lanka. Quite correctly, the path is seen to lie in justice. The single way to lead the country to redemption is through justice. With these perceptions, fervent demand is for a resolution that is unequivocal. Looked forward to is a resolve and a commitment to an Independent International Inquiry.

Why are Bishop Desmond Tutu, institutions and society leaders perturbed? To them never in sight is lasting peace. The future therefore is of grave concern. As they themselves concede, fear grips the land. A sense of injustice is persistent and pervasive. Five years after the end of war, all the signs are that the situation is getting worse. To make the problems increasingly intractable are unresolved issues, ongoing human rights violations and crimes on an expanding track. All these omissions and commissions when left unaddressed could lead to renewed conflict is their discernment. Very correct is what foresight tells the Tamils both resident, diaspora and in Tamil Nadu. Never to be left out are the enlightened and the percipient among the Sinhalese. Joining them are the minorities as well.

Culture of Impunity

Failure to enforce the law or even more deadly the wilful refusal at enforcement are what the country has seen consistently and continuously from June 5th 1956 to date in 2014. Inevitably every succeeding pogrom against the Tamils has been more devastating than the preceding one and it captured the international eye in the last 31 years from 1983. The wanton destruction of life of an estimated one lakh came about for lack of political wisdom. Tutu and others with social concern, aghast at this recurring phenomenon want this stopped. They see a serious fault in the government’s lack of respect for the rights of citizens and more disrespect towards minority citizens. Very rightly the lapses are attributed to the failure to hold to account those who committed atrocities.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Archbishop Tutu and his intellectual comrades have made a neat and clear listing of the antecedents contributing to a dismal situation which has become systemic and even endemic. Having seen with detachment a tragedy developing for six decades and after analyzing the reasons therefor dispassionately, they make bold to say that the faults on both sides need examination. Hence their assertion that help is needed from the International Community to get the country back on track. Who can disagree? If the sore is permitted to fester further, a neighbouring power can be tempted to sanitize an unhealthy atmosphere. History is replete with discomforting precedents.

Sudetenland and Crimea

The BJP Manifesto declaring in 2009, “Rights of Sri Lanka’s Tamil minority community must be protected” is more than a hint of India’s concern induced by ethnic affinity of Tamil Nadu. Allusions by a few to Germany’s interest in Sudetenland Germans and what followed in September 1938 by way  of   annexation of Sudetenland may revive disquieting memories. However a graphic repeat of history is not among workable propositions as the world of foreign relations has changed considerably”. –  I wrote thus in an article ‘India’s Direction … And Impact on Sri Lanka’, dated 3.6.2014.

Vladimir Putin President of Russia proved me wrong when he sent his troops into Crimea in March 2014, within days of my writing so. He justified his action with the words “Russia reserves the right to protect its interests and the interests of the local population speaking Russian”. India has endorsed the action saying “Russia has legitimate interests in Ukraine”. Hitler marched his troops into Sudetenland, Czechoslovakia on 30th September 1938. Preceding the action he thundered “The condition of the Sudeten Germans is indescribable”. When actions effuse from interests, such is the language in which justification is couched.

Hillary Clinton said on March 4th 2014 “Putin’s desire to protect minority Russians in Ukraine is reminiscent of Hitler’s actions to protect ethnic Germans outside Germany”. She added “Putin is a man who believes his mission is to restore Russian greatness”. The psychological urge that impels him into it is similar to Germany denied a place under the sun endeavouring to reach for it. BJP in its Manifesto said “A resurgent India must get its rightful place”. A diligent look at the three nations may throw some clarity on possibilities.

    Now watch all the GOSL/Sinhala supremacist apologists try to launch an ad hominen attack on Desmond Tutu. Will be amusing to see what they can conjure up.

    Oh wait I know, they will tell Tutu to first hold the West responsilbe.All these Sinhala Chauvinist apologist want every single world issue fixed before people focus on Sri Lanka, which ofcourse is impossible so the real motive is for GOSL to get away with their genocide.

      As a mere common-person Lankan, I can only say that Modern Civilized Democracy does not condone ethnic greatness and takes it as Chauvinistic and Xenophobic. Modern Civilized Democracy might take it into consideration if the numbers are in big proportion (unfortunate, but there is nothing else to be done), e.g. in Tamil Nadu, but in a tiny Island like Sri Lanka and in an even tinier part as in her north, “right-of-self-determination” is a definite no-no.

      The proper fashion for Tamil self-determination (according to international rules e.g. Mexicans crossing the border in the US and being chased back – and those Mexicans have lived in the south of US and California since prehistory, till the Americans chased them away and took their lands), is for Tamils to migrate to Tamil Nadu if they so dislike living among a few Sinhalese, and an even fewer Sinhala words and letterings, and the even fewer of fewest Buddha statues.

      Therefore, Tutu is oh so wrong! Birds like Tutu, flocking together and not saying Holy Mass, is akin to a Flock of Ravens swooping down to herald Armageddon.

        Tamils don’t dislike living amongst Sinhala, they dislike have the Sinhala jackboots on them.

        Tamils were in Lanka before the Sinhalese. If it was the Veddah running Lanka instead of the Sinhalese, then I would agree Tamils should go back to TN.

        If Sinhalese want to create a Sinhala only Lanka, let them go back to Bengal and Orissa.

          But the Vaddas are hardly there anymore, so there is no need to talk about them, and all Sinhalese have Vadda blood anyway.

          Orrisa and Bengal blood is about 0.005% of Sinhalese blood. So they can hardly go back there. But Tamil Nadu blood and Lankan Tamil blood are 100% at par with each other.

          I hear that most Sinhalese soldiers in the N&E are kindly, good-natured persons. We hope that all those rapes, molestations and thuggery will be dealt with severely and swiftly.

          We can never be certain who was there first……all that is old history. The following are possibilities:

          1) All were Tamils before they became Sinhalese when the 500 Bengalese landed on our shores and mixed with about 1-million Tamils inhabitants.

          2)There were only Vaddas, and the Tamils came later. It would seem that the Tamils came later as Tamils originally belonged to the Indus civilization of North India before they were chased down by Aryan invaders.

          3)Tamils could have colonized the Island first and mixed with Veddas, and then the Bengalese came in and mixed everything even further, and most became Buddhists, but the Tamils in the North remained Hindu.

          4)Or maybe Tamils stayed north, and before they could encroach any further, Vaddas mixed with Bengalis (ratios of 0.0005:1)and then they became the Sinhala race. And through the ages since, Sinhalese, especially the coastal people have mixed with all others; Tamils in the North also would have mixed but a very, very little bit as per Hindu religion of racial purity.

          5)All were Vaddas and then the Bengalis came and created the Sinhalese race (0.0005:1). All became Buddhists. Then the Chola empire decided to expand, and they came to Sri Lanka and have since remained in the N&E.

          As of 2009, all are Lankan! Lanka will allow people to call themselves Sinhalese and Tamils, but as per terrorism in the N&E for over 30 years, it’s best that the Army remain in the N&E for a generation or two.

            ~correction : Orissa and Bengali blood is about 0.0005% of Sinhalese blood.

            Ok……Sinhalese are so terrified of terrorism that the army has to stay there for maybe a decade. In the meantime, they will introduce a few Sinhalese people, a little Sinhalese language….and any religious iconography will be a little also (amounts must be worked out). But Tamils must be compromising.

            “But the Vaddas are hardly there anymore”

            Have you killed them and buried them all over the island?

            “so there is no need to talk about them,”

            Why not?

            “all Sinhalese have Vadda blood anyway.”

            No all Sinhalese have Tamilnadu Tamil blood.

            “But Tamil Nadu blood and Lankan Tamil blood are 100% at par with each other.”

            Genetically Sinhalese are closely related to Tamilnadu Tamils than the Sri Lankan Tamil.

            “I hear that most Sinhalese soldiers in the N&E are kindly, good-natured persons.”

            Are they? If you believe this you will believe anything.

            ” before they were chased down by Aryan invaders.”

            Interesting, was there an Aryan race? Please sight your source.

            “but the Tamils in the North remained Hindu.”

            Wasn’t Demela Bouthama practiced in the island until about 125 years ago?

            “As of 2009, all are Lankan! Lanka will allow people to call themselves Sinhalese and Tamils,”

            There is no such thing as Sri Lankans. This is Veddah land and will remain so for another 5000 years.

            By the way would you please stop talking bull**** in the name of history lessons?

              Never killed your people, Native Vedda……we assimilated with you. Well, as you are of a population of around 15,000 or less, whatever race occupies the land, you will survive as long as the forests remain (please remain so the forests will endure)……but you have also joined mainstream and are known as Vedda(that’s so beautiful).

              Guess your race diminished from around 1-million from 500 BCE because Vijaya and his followers assimilated with you. But if the current less than 15,000 followers are pure-blooded, kudos to you.

              Never mind the genetics. Ancient history is ancient history. What is most important is the Modern Democracy that is Lanka.

              With the eyes of the world monitoring the progress in Sri Lanka and waiting to jump on us at every turn, Gosl would be very obtuse to have thuggish soldiers running around, but if there is some of it, we hope it will be dealt with swiftly.

              I said Aryan invaders, and never said Aryan race. Guess Aryan invaders are an ethnicity or something (not sure what the terminology is).

              So if this Buddhist sect called “Demela Bouthama” (sounds very derogatory) is practiced in the North, guess those are the Tamils who want very much to integrate with Sinhalese. The rest will remain pure Tamil- that’s ok.

              Wow…………the Native Indians (USA) say the same thing as you, and are at times, hostile too, to the rest of the Americans. If America has done it so recently, then International Law will surely forgive us for doing it some 2,500 – 2,000 years ago. So all I can say is, “In the name epochs past gone, we the peoples of Sri Lanka humbly ask your forgiveness for the chopping down of your forests and the stealing of your people so as to assimilate.”

                “Never killed your people, Native Vedda……we assimilated with you. “

                This is more Sinhala Chauvinist propahganda.

                You didn’t assimilate with them, you slaughted them and assimilated the survivors into the Sinhala fold. That is cultural genocide because you get to keep your Sinhala culture while effectively erasing Veddah distinct indentity.

                You want to do the same thing to Tamils, you want to forcefully and through coercision assimilate Tamils into the Sinhala fold, to wipe out distinct Tamil identity.

          When Veddah running this island, we welcomed all asylum seeking kallthonies and destitute who sought refuge in this land.

          Now descendants of Kallathonies are leaving this island in thousands.

          You know the reason as to why Sinhalese and Tamils are leaving this island in large numbers.

        Explain why no no?

        “and those Mexicans have lived in the south of US and California since prehistory”

        Could you explain what you meant by prehistory?

        “is for Tamils to migrate to Tamil Nadu if they so dislike living among a few Sinhalese,”

        If Sinhala/Buddhists are the problem why cannot they go back to their ancestral homeland in Tamilnadu and let my people live a peaceful life in this tiny island?

            Native Vedda and PalmSquirrel,
            Sri Lanka is doing/has done, what all other countries have done throughout hiatory. One majority race went above others…..the only person you can mourn and plead your loss to, is God.

            Pray hard Native Vedda, for in a parallel universe, Veddas would have triumphed. Just migrate, PalmSquirrel, for in Tamil Nadu, Tamils have triumphed.

            But both must pray sincerely. For in that parallel universe NV you might just be born a……..horrors upon horrors…….a……Sinhalese! And pray earnestly PS, for once in TN, you might just come running back, for the TN-idians might give one look at you and say “mae para-Dravidian, palayang-bung!” (in Tamil of course).

              PalmS, Sinhala-persons have always admired and respected you Jaffna Tamils. But when the Jaffna Tamils started pushing us around and tried to take over, then it became preposterous to all.

    “Hillary Clinton said on March 4th 2014”

    If Hillary contest and win the world is in for a lot of stupid trouble like her Libyan affair.

    We all knew even before Putin contested that he had to come in to stop the ongoing rot perpetrated by the hoodwinking cowboys.

    We also knew that Obama is no match for Putin.

    Putin has the triangle Shanghai Defense Corporation and he can always sell his gas to China of course for a lesser price but it would hit Germany very hard and Europe plus London FTSE.

      Obama is smart not to let the NeoCons drag the US into more MidEast wars. Obama was very hesitant to intervene in Libya, but he was forced to by the Europeans and Hawkish right wing Americans. Obama has also rebuffed Saudi attempts to get the US to bomb Assad. You may recal Obama was against the Iraq war.

                  There no evidence it was hijacked. It may have been but there is no proof yet and there are other possible scenarios.

                  LTTE is dead , except for the ones supporting Rajapaksa. If I could post a meme, I would post a picture of a person beating a dead horse.

    When did Tutu start fostering peace and reconciliation in Sri Lanka??
    What was Tutu doing when the LTTE terrorists were suicide murdering innocent civilians (Both Sinhalese and Tamils), forced recruitment of Tamil child soldiers, distributing cyanide capsules to these children and bombing and destroying the infrastructure of Sri Lanka? He had more than 30 years to write something like this to the UNHRC to intervene and stop this carnage. And now he wants peace, justice and reconciliation? with whom? Does he even know that the innocent Tamil civilians had nothing to do with terrorism?

      Listen don’t give us some faux concern for Tamil children , when you shamelessly support the slaughter of tens of thousands of Tamils.

      You claim to be concered about the Tamil children forced to fight by LTTE but you also support GOSL and its slaughter of Tamils. Your bringing up the Tamil children is just another pathetic attempt to attack anyone who criticises GOSL, who slaughtered far more Tamil children than LTTE, and unlike LTTE GOSL rapes Tamil children.

      Why is Tutu getting involved? Because, sweet boy, our dear leaders sent off a delegation led by that once good lawyer, now disgraceful lick-spittle Nimal Siripala de Silva to try and get South Africa to assist with a ‘Truth and Reconciliation’ styled process in a desperate attempt to ward off a resolution in Geneva.

As I have written so many times I would not bother about truth or reconciliation because the innocent Tamils remaining in SL had nothing to do with terrorism. If you have a better IQ you might figure out that reconciliation has to be between people who had hostility!

          As I pointed out before your selection of name (eusense.com/‎ Eusense is a supermodernist design studio that meticulously crafts visual identities and digital interactions.US based site by Swiss/Americans)
          Speaks enough of you being a fuckdumbass.

          Similar to religion, patriotism is an emotion, as opposed to a rational thought process. Studies and surveys have consistently indicated that approximately 90% of persons in any given country have strong patriotic sentiments.
          This percentage is similar to the percentage of people involved in other faith-based activities, such as religion.
          This same percentage also reflects the bell-curve of the general intelligence level of a population: 90% of all Lankians register an IQ below 50.
          This is evidenced in your method of study which is revising past question papers than understanding the subject.
          While 90% of all persons in a Caucasian population group register an IQ below 120.

    “Does he even know that the innocent Tamil civilians had nothing to do with terrorism?”

    Not just him but everyone knew that innocent Tamil civilians had nothing to do with terrorism but the govt of Sri Lanka found it easy for its genocide by labeling all Tamils as terrorists. This prevented honest Sinhalese with a conscience questioning the abuse of Tamils and the Lazy, racist Sinhalese saw an opportunity without competition.

    [What was Tutu doing when the LTTE terrorists were suicide murdering innocent civilians (Both Sinhalese and Tamils)]
    Are you sure it was the LTTE terrorist it could well have been the hand picked foot soldiers of the govt. Douglas and his merry men. Why hasn’t the govt conducted a proper oven investigation? Not even for people like Kadir who trusted their life with te govt.

    Very often commentators have said- “Thanks to the advanced technology and the possibilities of satellite tracking it is now not necessary for matters to be established unlike in the past which took decades to establish” So in short NASA/US defence has it ie killing of 40k.

    But right now the 60% of US forces are in and around the South and East China Sea.

    Yet the Americans cannot find a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200-MH370 carrying 239 people lost communication and radar signal.

    of several stolen passports 2 of them stolen at Thailand Phuket and tickets purchased by Iranian. The plane turned direction

    So was it hijacked and went under water to be with Bin Larden??

    Tutu, Rayappu, Saundranayagam and Telegraph are all part of Vatican conspiracies of creating a Christian state in Sri Lanka.
    Hey Tutu, Rayappu and Saundranayagam, you idiots should ask Pope Francis to hand over the child-molesting Catholic Bishops, priests and other robe-wearing too-woos for crimes against children committed over and over again….
    Tutu, go to Vatican and take a stand and prove your intentions are genuine. Take a stand against child rapists, boy-toy keeping sick pedophiles within Catholic Churches all over the world.
    You should smell your own arm pit before finding stink in others’.

      Strawberry Dosa,
      Meeharka modayas were licking pakiarse and general Musharraf who threatened Atal Bihari Vajpayee that he would nuke India (ha ha with US borrowed tech)then he also abused Tony Blair on a public platform as being a creator of terrorist.

      Finally as soon as Bush was gone the Pork President came to London on all 4’s begged for political asylum. He was housed at Edgeware Road for years costing the tax payer £1 million per month for his security alone. Now all the pork nukes are tagged and defused so no more pork talk. Same will be the case for passa and his cronies. Mahinda was scheduled to leave for London on 10 March to attend Commonwealth Day celebrations and meet the Queen but he evaded because Boris Johnson was not prepared to give him the security.
      What goes round must come round-
      Spice Colony rascal, Slaves will always be slaves.

    Desmond Tutu is also a Christian. What else could he do other than toe the Chritian west’s strategy, just like Rayappu Joseph.

    Bishop Tutu.
    Do you forget what the Tamil Terrorist did to the Tamil People of Srilanka.The wicked blood thirsty LTTE did not spare any one when it came to the sharp edge of their sword, it fell on every innocent Tamil
    who did not share their ideas of black terror.This Tamil Diaspora once lived on Wade and put their head on a rolled sarong that they wore during the day but now they sleep on feather Pillows thanks to Prabakaran and Srilankan Free Education.What a lucrative job opportunityies for them to live in luxury counting the blood dollers they collect selling so called “Atrocities in Srilanka” in the western world they once sneaked into with the sympathy card.If this Tamil loved Tamils why did they take advantage of LTTE terror and fled SRILNKA. Bishop Tutu, if you are really intrested in Tamils Please pray for them to live peacefully anywhere they go in the world without disrupting the peace in those countries.

    Too bad.

    The draft resolution contains nothing of that.

    It will be further watered down.

    who is going to be srilanka´s tutu ?

    Having studied the all violent manners that Ghanasara (GAG) and his clads performed recently, not many would agree with.

    Srilanka as a prodominant buddhist country should build up a committee comprsing all religious leaders to be able to back lanken political leadership if they are genuine in achieving permanent peace.

    Tutu, if genuine, should be concerned with millions of Africans still living under extremely repressive regimes in appalling poverty and disease.

    Sampanthan and Wigneswaran should first realize they are elected by Tamil people who actually live in Sri Lanka and are its citizens, and should cease acting on behalf of the Tiger Diaspora and Tamil Nadu.
    And Rayappu should simply go to hell.

    There is a big hole in your “diligent look at three nations.” Have you ever heard of a fourth nation with “legitimate interests” in Kashmir?

      What makes you think Tutu can not be concerend about Africans AND others. He recently stated that Israeli treatment of Palestinians is akin to Apartheid.

      Sampanthan and Wigneswaran are doing the best they can to help Lankan Tamils. Helping Lankan Tamils requires seeking justice for them and the many disappeared and killed. Sampanthan and Wigge were overwhelmingly voted by Northern and Eastern Tamils, proof enough that Tamils know who is helping them and who is a GOSL shill (Devananda).
