Army Back Out In The North After Pillay, Int’l Polls Monitors Leave The Province

Troops in the Northern Province including the capital of Jaffna were back out in their numbers again this month after being largely confined to barracks during the visit of UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay and the Northern Provincial Council elections that were closely monitored by international observer missions.

Maj Gen Mahinda Hathurusinghe - Jaffna Commander

The presence of armed soldiers was very rare in the week leading up to the September 21 poll after foreign polls observers and diplomatic observation teams from several embassies in Colombo travelled to the North.

Similarly when High Commissioner Pillay toured the region for two days military personnel were largely confined to barracks and major checkpoints like the one at Elephant Pass, the corridor that leads to the Jaffna peninsula were dismantled.

But troops are out in their numbers in the region once more and welfare shops, canteens and restaurants operated by the military are still widely in operation.

The military will be confined to barracks once more when British Prime Minister David Cameron visits Jaffna on the sidelines of CHOGM, sources said.

As international calls mount for scaling down troops in the former conflict zones to allow for normalisation of the region in the post-war phase, President Mahinda Rajapaksa on Tuesday announced that there would be no withdrawal of the military from the North.

“How will less troops help the Tamil people in the North,” the President asked addressing the convocation of the Kotalawela Defence Academy on Tuesday.

      Pardon! Your slip is showing. This is what a Sinhalese historian has to say,
      “… it stands to reason that a country which was only thirty miles from India and which would have been seen by Indian fisherman every morning as they sailed out to catch their fish, would have been occupied as soon as the continent was peopled by men who understood how to sail… Long before the arrival of Prince Vijaya, there were in Sri Lanka five recognized isvarams of Siva which claimed and received the adoration of all India. These were Tiruketeeswaram near Mahatitha; Munneswaram dominating Salawatte and the pearl fishery; Tondeswaram near Mantota; Tirkoneswaram near the great bay of Kottiyar and Nakuleswaram near Kankesanturai.” (Paul E. Pieris: Nagadipa and Buddhist Remains in Jaffna : Journal of Royal Asiatic Society, Ceylon Branch Vol.28)

        There was a strong Buddhist following among the Tamils. Two out of five major Tamil epics are set in the Buddhist background! They even mention Nainativu (or Nagadipa). A lerge number of Buddhist scholars were Tamils.

      If anything you too a descendant of Kallathoni and share Tamilnadu Tamil gene and you should take the first boat back to your mother land, Tamilnadu.

      When you go please take your Tamil/Sinhala brethren with you.

    Max Silva, get your head checked. It’s because of people with small minds that this country’s hope of becoming a developed nation like Singapore will be nothing more than a pipe dream. While terrorism of any nature ought to be defeated what is more important is to make sure the causes of it never surface again. Who created the monster Prabakaran ? It’s racial and chuvanistic people like you. For argument sake please note that the only nationality with the smallest number and confined to an island is the sinhala race. If you know a bit if history you will also know that even the sinhalese owe their origin to king wijaya who was banished from India. There is none in this country who can lay claim to be pure sinhalese as there is none including yourself who bears a surname, if that is your real name, which is quite popular in Portugal.
    The army’s presence is required through out the country not in large numbers in one particular region where people still live in fear. You may have not lost a loved one due to the war but hundreds have lost theirs in the north due to both the army and the LTTE . The Tamil s as you say have India. Whrich country’s support do we have ? Uganda, Syria, Libya, Belarus ? Think before you open your mouth as some stupid sinhalese as do. Just so that you know my cousin was a senior officer who served under General Kobbekaduwa who understood that unless the causes of war are eradicated one cannot win the war. Yes one may win the battle which we did in 2009 but the war is yet to be won. That can only be won if every citizen feels safe in this country irrespective of race , religion and ethnicity. When that will become a reality is anyone’s guess.

      You are wrong.

      Pease note Champika Ranawake, Nalin de Silva, Bandu De Silva, Sarath Fonseka, Kamalika Pieris, Malinda Seneviratne, members of BBS, Ravana, JVP, … and many others are descendants of pure Aryan Hela Sinhalese.

    – withdraw the Army
    – give displaced people their lands and homes back
    – have Tamil speaking police

    Until then, there is no reconciliation and country moves towards separation.

      First of all, Sinhala people are supposed to have half Lion inbred blood, and the head of the family killed his father! Then, all Sinhala people should have half Tamil blood as Vijaya and his friends got their wives from Pandya Kingdom in India. The first recorded kallathoni was Vijaya!

    UN Human Rights Commission should have permanent representative monitoring teams in the North, East and the South so that they can independently monitor how each region is treated by the Government. This would be an outcome after the next UN Human Rights resolution.

    In my Opinion our Saddarmadveepa Chakrawarthi is correct. He established Gaanu 5 Nanasara Bebadu Balukaya to protect “pure Sinhala Buddhism” in Sri Lanka and Gaanu 5 Bebadu Nanasara is leading the Armed section of the Pure Sinhala Buddhism in the country. Actually now they are confined only to eliminate Halal from the Island and engage in destroying mosques and Hindu Kevil’s in small scale. After eliminating Halal only Haram will remain the country. In the future they are going increase the Productivity of all “Upasaka Ammas” by helping them to make more and more kids to increase “Pure Sinhala Buddhists” in the country. Actually we should thank the Minister Champika Ranawaka for helping Nanasara.

    Our Saddrmadveepa Chakrawarthi recently said that Military Camps should be there everywhere in the country to protect Democracy. That is true. Haven’t we seen how our Ranaviru Forces protected Democracy in Katunayaka, Halawatha and Waliweriya. Actually we should suggest that in every Town Council there should be a Military Camp to protect more and more democracy.

    People of Northern Province (Tamils, Muslims, and Sinhalese) should be confident of the SL army’s presence in the region. If not for the brave SL army, barbarian Prabacaran would have abducted their young children from schools, equipped them with guns and Cynde capsule necklaces, and sent to war in order to die for absolutely nothing, not just children, women too. ha..ha.. how macho, the LTTE were hiding behind women and children.

    How ever there are few LTTE terrorist still left in the region. SL army can be anywhere it is neccesary but should not directly involve in civilian matters.

      Soo brave they deliberately shelled unarmed civilians seeking refuge in designated no fire zones watched by Red Cross workers.

      Soo brave it took them decades to defeat a minority militant movement despite overwhelming demographic superiority, better and more advanced weapons, Western , Indian and other regional nations’ military , economic and diplomatic support.

      Soo brave, you had to rape defenseless women and minors.

        @PalmSquirrell

        yes the SL army are brave but there might have been few rotten apples. Nowadays so called reputed international organisations credibility is suspicious. These international organisations have become puppets for western governments. Red Cross, UN, NATO, HRW, etc were well respected organisations in their early days.

        Besides, what do you mean by “they deliberately shelled unarmed civilians seeking refuge in designated no fire zones watched by Red Cross workers”?
        Answer this, how come not a single Red Cross worker dead but civilians? where were the Red Cross watching from? from Europe and America? from outer space?

        The point is, that the alleged civilian deaths were not caused by the army deliberately. The LTTE portrayed the refugee camps as LTTE camps and launched massive rockets from there. There were refugee camps where the LTTE hid their weapons and their looted massive fortune from innocent Tamils.

        The reason army took decades to defeat the terrorists, because Sri Lanka never had a straight-laced leader except MR who would put their signature on the paper and order the army to get rid of the terrorist for good, and the army could not afford the much needed military hardware as well due to high level of corruption in the government.

        you raped women and minors in order to intimidate and make them join your crazy misguided organisation.

      Prabacaran and Wijeweera happened to be two misguided fools who accumulated vast fortune for THEMSELVES. Arms struggle was a norm in other parts world which was completely unnecessary in Sri Lanka because Sri Lanka never had dictators or military dictatorships. The leaders, SL had then were educated and easy-going but in effective. Praba and Wije could have joined major political parties and find solutions for their concerned people’s problems. Those two were violent criminals and disappeared without trace leaving their followers misplaced.

      Unfortunately naive, gullible, and uneducated village people can be hypnotised with crazy rhetorical speeches.

        It seem you are a naive,gullible, and unwise city slicker who is mesmerized by the trappings of power, wealth and stupidity.

        You are not alone, hence you are guaranteed the continuation of cycle of violence, corrupt practices, human right violations……..
