Austin Upholds Constitution; Ilanchelian Before The Judicial Services Commission

Presidential pet Governor of Northern Province Suren Rāghavan’s attempt at hoodwinking the President and the Foreign Ministry to enter a bipartisan negotiation with the Government of India in total violation of Sri Lanka’s constitution was raised in parliament yesterday by lawmaker M.A. Sumanthiran PC. 

Judge Ilanchelian

With the Exposé of the list of delegates in Rāghavan’s illegal “official visit” by Colombo Telegraph, it is reported that the legal community is stirred in controversy to note that a serving judge Manickavasagar Ilanchelian’s name appearing in the said list. As an officer of the judiciary holding a position warranting absolute impartiality and refrainment from politicking, llanchelian has violated the law of the land and the ethics of the legal service by being a part to an illegal effort of the bungling governor at overstepping authority and violating the constitution. Yesterday in parliament, Sumanthiran called this a “ridiculous state that the Executive has come to”.

Governor Rāghavan

Sources close to Tilak Marapana, Minister of Foreign Affairs confirmed that Ilanchelian’s professional misconduct shall be taken before the Judicial Service Commission’s upcoming sitting. “The gravity of the involvement of Ilanchelian in this unconstitutional move is well understood. It has further marred the crumbling reputation of the judiciary coming under constant fire by the public, social media and the legal community itself. Ilanchelian has taken political stoogery and naked breach of ethics to the next level. His office represents one of the three pillars of governance. He should not have fallen prey to the cheap political tactics of Governor Rāghavan”

“It is common knowledge that Ilanchelian was aiming for a life in politics. He appealed to the collective emotions of the Sinhalese in the south capitalizing on the death of his body guard, portraying himself as the savior of his grief stricken Sinhala family. He capitalized it to such nauseating extent that within days we suspected his political aspirations. The cat is out of the bag now. Suren Rāghavan is also setting the stage for his launch in politics with cryptic elements in India backing him. Who are the agencies or persons giving Rāghavan the confidence to violate the constitution? The invisible Indian element behind this move cannot be taken lightly. Rāghavan is clearly an agent of a bigger game plan. Is an Indian agency funding Rāghavan’s political career? Whose mandate is Rāghavan carrying out?” our source from the Northern Provincial Council stated. 

Ambassador Fernando

Further commenting on the debacle, our Foreign Ministry source stated “The Minister of Foreign affairs Tilak Marapana has seen the observations of Sri Lanka’s envoy to India Ambassador Austin Fernando regarding this attempt at the violation of the constitution. It is reported that Fernando, an expert in the subject of devolution of power, in his characteristically straight forward and fact based manner had gone to the extent of quoting the case, Shiva Vs Felix where the former Chief Justice of Sri Lanka GPS De Silva has judged such encroachments in to administrative boundaries to be extremely detrimental to the sanctity of the constitution. Fernando has warned off Rāghavan’s attempt to usurp the powers vested on the Foreign Ministry and the President. He has also made an impassioned request to uphold the sanctity of the constitution stating that if violating the constitution is allowed in this instance “I have no other option but to worship the judgement by Justice GPS De Silva.” 

“Upon reading Ambassador Fernando’s damning letter, Tilak Marapana immediately traced the referenced judgement by GPS De Silva and confirmed Fernando’s observations to be true,” our source at the Foreign Ministry confirmed.

Our Foreign Ministry source stated “President’s new found pets are not only digging a political grave for him out of self-interest. They are also genuinely ignorant about the history, principals and the laws pertaining to the devolution of power. Isn’t it deplorable that throughout this to and fro process, there wasn’t a single officer in the Sri Lanka Administrative Service or the Foreign Service to state the obvious and defend the constitution till Fernando did?”

    THIS IS AN unwanted situation created by HALF TAMIL HALF SINGALA HALF BUDIST HALF HINDU AND SELFISH RAGAVAN AND THIS WELL EDUCATED ILLAMCHELIYAN HAS GOT TRAPPED IN TO RAGAVANS MADNESS.Hope ILLAMCHELIAN will use his common senses and get out of this coup.

      Illanchelian should not tarnish his name by associating with scums. I heard that it was Sumanthiran who recommended to Sirisena about appointing Raghavan to the post. Is Sumanthiran playing a double game, to become a darling of Sinhalese.

        This reminded the me how this Ilanchelian mourned once his body guard was gunned down by some few months ago. His reactions went viral and earned much respect among sinhalese by his unique reactions. I dont think Sumanthiran would not harm any kind of relationships. He is very intelligent guy. I just believe, the naivity of Ilanchelian was caught by his so called beloved men here. I dont think there is any kind of back thoughts in the mind of Ilanchelian earning any kind of other respect. All in all, I beleive, he woul dno stand against the law.He sounded to be a person who would not go beyond any compliance.

    Hon. M A Sumathirsn, PC,

    Thank you for raising the issue pointed out by Austin Fernando, when many others missed the unconstitutionality of the actions by Ridwan.

    Sri Lanka is indeed lucky to have people like you and Austin Fernando, in a country where the mean IQ is 79.

      Amarasiri, Sumanthiran has time and effort jumping to the forefront only to raise violations of constitution for these matters. Why is he keeping quiet when successive governments have violated the constitution by refusing to devolve police and land powers granted to provincial councils as per the 13th Amendment.

          Amarasiri, Sumanthiran was elected by Tamils and Tamils only to serve the interest of Tamils who are still suffering under the Sinhala controlled regime. He asked for votes from Tamils that he will fight for their rights and was elected for that purpose. As far as Tamils are concerned their right to live with dignity and safety as equal citizens is paramount than these mundane matters of national interest.

        Dr. Gnana Sankaralingam,
        Police and Land powers are not granted because the low caste Demala people in the North told not to give those powers to Wellala dominated NPC. Low caste Demala people are the majority in Northern Province. Even without Land and Police powers, Wellala Demalu are oppressing low caste Demala people. They use a Malabari customary law called Thesawalamei to block low caste Demala people access to land. About 80% of the land in the North is owned by Wellala Demalu and most of them are absentee land lords.
        ————
        How come these Wellala Demalu who talk about a traditional homeland in this country have a Malabari customary law and hanging on to that. As British rightly called all these Demalu are Malabaris. There were no Tamils in Sinhale. In 1911, a guy called Ponnambalam Arunachalam who prepared the Census Report change the term ‘Malabari’ to ‘Ceylon Tamils’. The term changed but people are same ‘Malabaris’.

            Bunjappu,
            I have no grudge against ordinary Demala people who like to live with Sinhalayo. I am against the Wellala elite crooks who oppress ordinary Demala people while talking about discrimination by Sinhalayo and try to give the impression to ordinary Demala people that Sinhalayo are the enemy while the real enemy is Wellala elite crooks who live with Sinhalayo in Colombo and trying to be the saviours of ordinary Demal people. Low caste Demala people should rise against oppression from Wellala Demalu. Wellala Demalu cannot fool ordinary Demala people all the time. The day will come low caste Demala people will take arms against Wellala crooks. That is the reason why Wellala elites want Police powers to suppress the low caste uprising brutally using Wellala Police force.

          Eagle Eye
          Vellalars were first brought down from South India by the Dutch to work as labourers in tobacco fields in the 18th Century.
          Later, when the Dutch colonial empire saw tobacco as a lucrative business, they sold paddy lands in the North to South Indians which saw a large influx of them in our country.
          The Arab invasion of South India from 13th to 16th Century also caused many South Indians to abandon their lands and migrate to Northern parts of Ceylon.
          These are the people now claim North as theirs.
          There had been an area called “Elam” in ancient Iran and the people in Elam have spoken a language called “Elamite.” Some suspects Tamils have migrated to modern Tamil Nadu from Iran. However, there is not much evidence to support this either.
          Dravidian is not one race. It is a combination of a number of ethnic groups, such as; Kannadiga, Brahui, Telangu, Tuluva, Malayali and Tamils.

        13 amendment was implemented forcefully by India.It was not done by us, or Sri Lankans. It was not home grown solution and it didn’t bring any peace or prosperity either north east or South. Therefore don’t talk about something which we refused. If anyone want to have a peaceful solution, they must accept this reality and must come to understanding with rest of the country.

    Northern Province Governor, Raghavan should be relieved from his post forthwith.
    Attacking Judge Ilanchelian is not right. He is not at fault.
    The entire country will vouch for his impeccable conduct and the manner in which he handled controversial cases, without any bias.
    It was Judge Ilanchelian’s genuineness that won the hearts of Sinhalese, following the sacrifice made by his Sinhalese bodyguard with life. I don’t think Sinhalese has ever seen such sincerity in a Tamil.
    I take this opportunity to stress the need to abolish Provincial and Divisional Councils both.
    The upper hand taken by Raghavan in this matter is an eye opener for Sinhalese.
    If the Provincial Council elections are held, obviously Raghavan will contest for CM post.
    If he wins, what will happen? He will go beyond his power and attach the Northern Province to India by entering political, economical and societal agreements, without the consent of the Central Government. He can even enter into defence pacts with India. Without power if he acts like this, if he has power what wouldn’t he do?
    Use your common sense, Sinhalese.
    Some Sinhalese traitors even say the Executive Presidency should be abolished knowing fully well that it is the core power that keeps Sri Lanka as one country.
    Raghavan should be fired.
    Actually, all Presidential lackeys who were appointed as Governors recently, should be fired forthwith.
    There are allegations against the Southern Province Governor of intimidation of a female school Principal, causing mischief, uttering death threats and forcing her to violate Education Ministry Circulars and enroll some children of his choice to Grade 1. Interestingly, he was a human rights activist before his appointment as the Governor, Southern Province!!!!!
    All these Presidential lackeys who abuse power should remember that they are paid by the public. They are a waste. All of the Governors should be fired.

Karuna amman and Pillayan with the help of Inniyabrathy and many LTTE members massacred 600 surrendered poor policemen, explain it to me how your goon Rajapaksa befriended him and gave him a ministerial job? Do you realize majority of these policemen were fathers of small children and husbands to so many women? Also they were poor. These LTTE scumbags massacred these policemen and left these poor families as destitute? You seem to be writing a hoard of nonsense when it comes to Tamils, but you cannot defend one question that I have been trolling you with?

        It was not a government to government agreement.
        Provincial Councils were given as an attempt to make LTTE lay down their arms. Though India’s intention was to attach Northern Province to Tamil Nadu, Indian conspiracy didn’t work as President JRJ refused to grant Police and land powers to any Provincial Councils.
        LTTE terrorism was eradicated in 2009. There is no need for 13th Amendment.
        Sri Lanka is not under obligation to India in any manner. We are a sovereign country. We take our own decisions.
        There is no need for any devolution package for an ethnic group which is only 11% of the total population, of which 6.5% live out of Northern Province.

          “It was not a government to government agreement.”

          The indo sri lanka peace accord was a accord signed in colombo ,between indian prime minister rajiv ghandhi and sri lankan president J.R.Jayawardene.

          “There is no need for any devolution package for an ethnic group which is only 11% of the total population, of which 6.5% live out of Northern Province.”

          The sinhala president who represented the sinhalese of sri lanka and who signed the accord did not seem to think so.Why did the sinhalese not come out into the streets enmasse and protest when he wanted to sign it and also after he signed.

      Champa I accommodated a Sinhala family from Matara from 1980 to 1990 in part of my house in Colombo without charging a rent. Of course they reciprocated this deed by preventing my house being burnt in 1983. The family are still grateful to me for this. Other Sinhala neighbours will corroborate with this. I am sure there will be several Tamils who had gone out of the way to help Sinhalese in need.

        Even risking their own lives, a large number of Sinhalese families protected Tamils in 1983 UNP-led- riot.
        Even in last year’s politically motivated Digana incident, a Sinhalese lady who rented the upper floor of a Muslim owned house, protected them by coming out of the house and sending thugs away.
        In the same incident, many Buddhist priests shielded Muslims from attacks. Some Buddhist priests even visited Mosques and stayed overnight while others patrolled roads near Mosques. Buddhist priests and Sinhalese people going out of the way to protect Muslims diffused the tension.

    Can someone enlighten us on the background of Suren Raghavan. We have never heard of him or his family/ academic/ professional background before his appointment as Governor. I would like to know where he was born, educated and positions held in public and/ or private sectors before his appointment. This is not to complement or demean him but of my interest on new appointees to public service.

    Judge Illanchellian would have known that the Governor NP had included his name as a delegat.
    The governor wouldn’t have done it without the said judge’s connivance or consent as observed by CT.
    To know that the Foreign Minister had taken prompt action to avert a violation of the country’s constitution on the alert by the SL Ambassador and notice the JSC to consider the misdemeanour on the part of the said Judge at it’s next sitting is indeed praiseworthy.

    Killing Judge’s favorite guard using an ex LTTEyer, who differed with LTTE and quit long before annihilation of LTTE, indicated that was Rapist Army staged the murder. It was something similar to Vakarai policemen shooting during coup. Vakarai boss selected one Tamil Police and one Sinhala Police to sacrifice on that night to suppress any suspicions. But there is no possibility Judge was a party in the guard’s murder. Judge wanted to keep his name clean from police records so he had only one way, attach to dead man’s Sinhala family so the Rapist police cannot easily load the murder on him, eventually. That family had respect for him, so it was not much difficult for Judge to maintain his name. But he was well aware that he was being used as pawn in Vydya case, where rapist Navy raped and shot, but Ranil sent his lawyers to suppress Vidya’s family, especially her brother.
    We don’t know the Judge’s end. The best one can pray for him is not below Hakeem. He would easily reach Kathirgamar, Mahendran, M/s Charles end.
    We had written in CT that we don’t like Judge’s “Hang them high” judgments. But two things: 1). He was not directly accused of any Gilmart by media so far. 2). Because the North is so infested with Rapist Army induced crimes, the tired people like his judgments.

      Man, you are sick.
      Lying and fabricating stories are second skin to Tamils.
      You Sun-god Prabhakaran, Tamil diaspora, Tamil politicians and Tamil intellectuals misled the world with Tamil Homeland myth for 34 years.
      The murder was carried out by a man called Sivarasa Jayanthan, a former member of the LTTE. Your claim that our Army had killed Judge Ilanchelian’s Sinhalese bodyguard who worked for him 15 years is another fabrication. Sivarasa Jayanthan was caught on camera when he was riding away after the shooting. He later surrendered to the Police.
      Your fellow Tamils in the North are raping young Tamils girls “on camera” and selling those videos like hot cakes in the West.
      Tamil school girl Vithiya who was raped by 6 Tamils before killing her was one such victim of rape-video business.
      Vithiya’s murderer and rapist Swiss Kumar who came from Switzerland to make the video was arrested and he had confessed that Vithiya was his 6th victims.
      Mind me reminding you that your Tamil State Minister for Child Affairs and Education, Vijayakala Maheswaran got intervened to release the rapist Swiss Kumar from police and helped him to flee the country. Fortunately he was arrested in Wellawatte before leaving the country, otherwise Tamils would have credited that incident to our Army’s account.
      It was first LTTE and now your own Tamils who rape and/or kill your own Tamil girls to make big money.
      Shame on you man!!!!

            “Stop fabricating stories. “

            You are the latest one telling me to what to do ( stop). And your extreme Sinhala Buddhist thickness makes you to believe that you can say my opinions as fabrications order and then I have to stop writing mine? That is still not that bad, anyway for a Chinkala Chauvinist like you?
            In Vidya case, Ranil immediately sent three Sinhala lowyers to replace Island’s most famous Criminal, PC grade Tamil lawyer, who wanted to appear free for the victim’s family.(Appe Aanduwa even refused to confer him “PC” because of his legal fights against Rapist Army and Navy). The three Sinhala lowyers forcefully removed and cooked it up working with UNP. Unfortunately, one of the picked one was UNP Vijayakala’s relative. So many secrets of rapist Navy’s plan leaked. New King ordered to dislocate the mother and now she is kept forcefully in the middle of a Sinhala Community to keep 24/7 surveillance on her. Leader Pirapaharan’s DNA was analyzed within 12 hours, his body was incinerated and the Ash dissolved. Why Vidya’s rapist’s DNA results did not come out? Further, Colombo Media reported DNA did not match. The accused told in the court that Navy raped and they were framed. Including Ilancheliyan, none of the three Tamil judges did anything about or even rescued them from the case, fearing of Appe Aanduwas revenging them on their jobs. The DNA analysts would have known what race was that rapist, whether a Tamil criminal or a Rapist Navy. Because the real criminal and the accused are village people and their DNA will resemble the typical race IDs’ samples.
            Then, the case you proved is on appeal; don’t jump up and own to show your silliness; wait for it too.

              Hold on, don’t mix up what you said in your own comment.
              This is what you said.
              “Killing Judge’s favorite guard using an ex LTTEyer, who differed with LTTE and quit long before annihilation of LTTE, indicated that was Rapist Army staged the murder.”
              You said our Army staged the murder, which is an utter lie.
              Vithiya’s case was concluded after about 2 years. It took that long because the government wanted to protect Vijayakala.
              What you say about Aappe Aanduwa is not my business. I don’t care what you say about them as no Sinhalese can stand them anymore.
              Look at what you say, “…..the case you proved is on appeal; don’t jump up and own to show your silliness……” Of course, I should jump when rapists and murderers have supporters like you.
              I can see that you have no concern for Vithiya as you sides with rapists because they are Tamils.
              Yeah, I know the 6 rapists and the murderer made appeals. This is another area in the law where Sri Lanka should make changes.
              Like in some other countries, rapists and murderers should be made ineligible for appeals.

            Your imbecility is not allowing tor understand the background of any legal lawsuit.

            What is your point on Sivarasa Jayanthan? You proved he was not used by Rapist Police? Can you deny that he had quit LTTE? He was set up to shoot the Guard, while the convoy was on the move. What a comedy, even a Sinhala Buddhist Modaya wouldn’t attempt it but was said ex LTTEyer did it! The Media explanation of hiring an Ex LTTEyer instead of free available Rehabilitated rebels was because he was a LTTE sharp shooter. They wanted the guard shot, while Judge was inside the car and it was moving. This was perceived as a warning to judge on the verdict he had to release with the few days of the incidence.

            Do you know what happened to the young girls forced into Army to form Tamil women division? Most of they were admitted to mental hospital because of the Rapist Army’s internal tortures. Hospital staff refused to talk. Even Deva could not visit to hospital.
            Even two days ago, rehabilitated Rebels called foreign diplomats’ help as they are being continuously framed on cases. America’s latest report said missing person relative women are still being raped by Rapist Army.
            Rapist Army is labeled as one of the 22 armies in the world use rape as cheap weapon to oppress Tamils. Rapist Army accused in Haiti raping underage girls. Rapist Army was deported from Mali because HRCSL failed to spot and inform War Criminals to UN. It simply said “They(army) did it, not we!” and escaped from the UN assigned responsibility.
            Fearing the SA activist (ITJP) M/s Sooka, Mahinda Samarasinghe didn’t go to UNHRC. She revealed that he was very active threatening victims to prevent them from witnessing at court.

              Why do I care whether Sivarasa Jayanthan quit LTTE or not. He is a trained LTTE terrorist. That is why he killed Ilanchelian’s bodyguard. His target could have been the Judge as LTTE is famous for killing prominent Tamils.
              If Tamil women are raped, tell them to go the nearest police station and file a complaint. Why are you waiting?
              Your problem is, you never expected Tamil men and women to appreciate our Army. They now work like hand in glove with the Army. Anybody can see ground realities just by talking to ordinary Tamils in the North.
              It was not Mahinda Samarasinghe’s decision to not to go to Geneva.. I guess President dropped the idea at the last moment as Raghavan was also in his delegation.
              Sooka and Tigers both are now feared of active participation of Sinhalese in Geneva forums. Before they had their own ways.

                It is the Sinhala Buddhist Army and police raped. They raped kidnapped victims inside their facilities. Rapist Army forced them to pay for building these torture chambers with their own Thalikodies. This is why Rapist Army listed as on in the 22 rapist army in the world. That is what the latest American report said. After war Massive forced abortions and sterilization the Rapist Army carried out on war area women; when UNHRC bring investigation will be soon coming out. Ranils-Sumanthiran Duo’s “Forget and Forgive” is not going to work with these women.

        “Your fellow Tamils in the North are raping young Tamil girls “on camera” and selling those videos in the West.
        Did the state’s prosecution in Vidya’s case obtain a copy of the said rape which you say was sold in the West and produce that as evidence in the court for the three judges to see and to identify the culprits and see who among them were committing the said offence and who only assisted in the commission of the vile act?
        Isn’t it true that such an incriminating evidence would have by itself clinched the prosecution’s case particularly as there was no jury?

                Never in another 20 births, you 5th grader will be evolved enough to understand legal technical terms. There is nothing as “Self-Confession” by one forcefully recruited, unless you mean in your undeveloped Sinhala Pashsave that Leader Pirapaharan, Siva Kumar et al forcefully recruited them into LTTE.

                “Famous example of self-confessing recent days are Mahinda Samarasingh, in self-confessing manner of witness intimidation, rescued him from UNHRC entourage.
                Ranil said in Kilinochchi that he want to appoint one sided TRC so Tamils can forgive and forget about the War Crime Sinhala Buddhist Rapist Army did it. “

                America has recruited Old Brother Prince to kill Old King’s dynastical ambitions. Ex. Diplomat Samantha Power came to Colombo to promote Mangala as another EP candidate.
                If EP remains not abolished, Mangala will win the EP election if not this time, at least next time. We wrote in CT, Feb 2018, that in next EP election it will Two American leading Candidates will be contesting for winners.
                The shameless boss of yours at last week went to meet the American Ambassador. It is interesting on the background of these incidents
                1). Ex Amb. Blake went to your friend Weerawansa’s office to meet him.
                2). Another time Lankawe police forced him to get off from his protected car on the road and made him to walk all the back to office. (I never heard Old Royal’s government apologizing America for that).
                3). On victory of Kudumpi Malai, many diplomats wanted to go to Bati. Old Royal Appe Aanduwa put him and 25 other diplomats and sent to Bati- in Rapist Army Heli. When it was about land, Rapist Army shelled LTTEs camps to make them to think Army Heli was bombing. Ambassador had to call UN to stop LTTE shooting his Heli.

      No self respecting Tamil will bend down to please Sinhalese. A good example is the former chief minister CV Wigneswaran. He was a prefect at Royal College and also the last Tamil President of Law Students Union. With his credentials he could have easily gone behind Sinhalese and received kudos. Sumanthiran does not hold a candle when compared with him. Sumanthiran filed legal action when Mahinda was appointed PM violating procedures, but has so far remained silent when Mahinda was appointed Leader of Opposition violating procedures. This is solely because in the first instant it will please Sinhalese, and in the second will not. This is what I am trying to make. I was repeatedly elected to high office in leading associations in UK, where Sinhalese were in the majority, purely due to my efficiency, despite fighting with them whenever racism raised its head. I never compromised my principles and did not get involved in unnecessary things in order to get cheap popularity.

        That is because he has got mahinda to agree that sampanthan need not vacate the opposition leaders official residence.Sampanthan is the one who lacks self respect.The traitor ponnambalam put poo on the tamils heads for a ministry while sampanthan has done it for just a official residence.We need a Jinnah.

          ” The traitor Ponnampalam put poo on the Tamils heads for a ministry “

          Oh No ! Get your facts correct before you write.
          If you have read the history and understood the events correctly, you wouldn’t have written this. GGP and his Tamil Congress party did not vote for Citizenship Act 1948 by which upcountry Tamils lost their citizenship and consequently voting rights. Later, giving responsive cooperation to the govt was decided by GGP, SJV, Vanniasingam , Kumarasamy, Kanagaratnam, Thambiaiyah and others. It was not
          a decision of GGP alone. On 22.8.1948 Tamil Congress had a public meeting in Jaffna to seek the approval of public for joining the govt. SJV, Vanniasingam, Sivapalan, Kanagaratnam and GGP addressed this meeting. On 19.8.1948 these tamil leaders had a discussion with DSSenanayake when DSS assured them that he will bring Indian & Pakistani Residents ( citizenship act ) under which TC members expected a substantial number of upcountry Tamils will get citizenship. Nehru too wanted this Act to come into force. Two upcountry MPs Peri Suntharam, George Motha did vote in favour of this Act along with TC and Independent members. SJV did vote against it. 52 MPs voted for and 32 against it. TC joined DSSenanayake in September ? 1948 and became a minister. SJV was in TC until he formed his own party on 18.12.1949. For further reading I would recommend Nita Wickramasinghe’s book Srilanka in the modern age: a history of contested identities.

              Idea of Pakistan was first proposed not by Jinnah but by Indian Muslim students in Cambridge Uni in 1930. Author Jaswant Singh says that mix of British, Muslim, and non Muslim Indians and not Jinnah alone created Pakistan” . No doubt British notably Winston Churchil backed Jinnah to achieve the goal of Pakistan, in addition to the actions of Nehru Patel and Ghandhi.

                surely,you don’t need sources to know that ponnambalam when he made in 1939 that idiotic demand to the british of 50:50 he would have known very well that it is not going to be given as the minorities consisted of 35%,while he was asking for 50%.Even after it was rejected did he ask for separation or federalism?he was the leader of the tamils when arunachanam and ramanathan died and tamils relied solely on him,same as muslims relied on jinnah.Why do you think ponnambalam behaviour was opposite to jinnah’s behaviour?Put two and two together and come up with 4 without entirely relying on sources,because god has given you a brain to use it,not idle it.

                He got for the north and east,industries like the cement factory at kankesanthurai,chemical factory at paranthan,paper mills in valaichenai etc,but he did not get the powers for the tamils to live in self respect in their own regions like the way jinnah got for the muslims and now they have nuclear weapons too.Factories cannot compensate for lack of freedom.

                Nehru made two statements. One in April 1940 where he stated to Malcom Darling that he would accept Pakistan rather than not have freedom. The other one made in 1960 when he told Leonard Mosley that ” the truth is that we were tired men and were getting on in years……the plan for partition offered a way out and we took it. ( taken from Hasan’s book) This was not the case in Srilanka. It was entirely different. Sinhalese politicians were not at all willing to share their political power or hold on their land. Land race and religion were their basics on which their power grew up. Tamil politicians , coming from same class, trusted their sweet words and promises but got cheated continuously. They promised alternatives but failed to implement it. Look at SJV, he challenged 1972 Constitution, resigned from parliament, and recontested to show that Tamils reject the Constitution and to give a mandate to him ” for the restoration and reconstitution of a free sovereign secular socialist state of Tamil Eelam” . He was reelected on this promise, but what did he do? He broke his promise, went back to Parliament and took oaths under the same Constitution. I could remember he was referred to as ” eelaththu Jinnah ” in public platforms. This is the sad situation of ours!

                  i am saying we should have asked for these things from the british,not from the sinhalese.Jinnah timed it well when hindus were getting their freedom he asked for the freedom for the muslims.When sinhalese got their freedom from the british we should have also asked for that,but GG did not.he asked for 50:50 which was absurd and contrary to all democratic principles,35 % of minorities getting 50% of seats.Blaming the sinhalese for trusting them etc is unfair as our own leaders at that time were untrustworthy.In fact many of my sinhalese friends used to ask “machan why did your leaders at that time not get all they could from the british for your people,without all this blood shed now after the british had left.'”what is your answer to that?

          Tamils will never have a person like Jinna. We had a different kind of Jinnah but he was doomed by his one and only political advisor. Had he given proper advice to stay away from Rajiv, Tamils would not have been in this worst scenario. LTTE is still a proscribed organisation in UK because of this advisor’s wilful failure to bring an action against it when amended Terrorism Act was brought in the year 2000. Why didn’t LTTE have a team of eminent experts in different fields as advisors instead of relying on one. Do you know any reason ?

          I assure you that there is no future for Tamils in Srilanka with the present set up of politicians.

              ” LTTE’s sole leader took his own decisions solely and did not tolerate a team”

              This is incorrect; a misconception shared by many. LTTE leader meets heads of each squad of poralikal, young men and women, and discuss pros and cons, draw accurate plan, select appropriate arms and place, before they make a decision to engage in an attack. There were videos available for public in this regard and I am sure you might have watched a few.

              In political side LTTE leader depended mainly on Anton Balasingam for a number of years. ( P did not decide solely. P’s mistake was he should have had a team and not relying solely on Bala ) But Bala has told DBS during his telephone conversation with him that Prabakaran is not understanding anything. The situation is becoming worse. The whole world will get together and clobber the Tigers. If that is so why did Bala remained silent? As an advisor, his duty was to pinpoint P’s wrongs whether he liked it or not and hammer him repeatedly with saner points, even if his life was in danger. Refer Thirukkural 447 & 448. Bala failed in this. He should have done this for the sake of Tamil community and Tiger members, without waiting till his last days to say so in a private conversation. He should have made it public long time back. Bala says further ” you know how veeramarthandan behaved with me ?” If that was very bad, why did he stay with him so long? He should have left and given room for other advisors. Furthermore an advisor should know ” idam porul
              Kaalam ” proper place, subject , and appropriate time receipient prefers, before he starts advising. An advise won’t go into the heart and mind of the recipient if these are not followed.

                After the war had ended some of them blamed their Thalaivar for the miserable failures of his decisions.

                    Please give us or tell us about his good side if he did have one.

                    At the end of the day what did she achieve for the people of this island?

    It appears that there is some sort of sabotage in implicating High Court Judge Ilancheliyan. Till now Ilancheliyan has never made a statement regarding the inclusion of his name in the delegation that will be headed by the Governor Suren Raghavan. Certainly Ilancheliyan would have consulted the Judicial Service Commission before making a decision. Even Sumanthiran could have raised his voice for political gains which cannot be ruled out as Sumanthiran’s popularity is fading among the Tamils. I knew Ilancheliyan when he was a practising lawyer in Colombo. After all Ilancheliyan is a person who will never bow down to low level. Just because his name was in the list, it does not mean he has consented to go on delegation. Let us wait and watch until Ilancheliyan makes a statement…

    Raghavan is painted as a MY3 man. But is it? Are we trying to compare the relationship of MY3 to Raghavan in trusting him to the worthy office to that of President Premadasa trustin “Babu”, his aide whose alleged betrayal costed the life of a President and is “entourage”. This kind of misconduct on the part of Raghavan and possibly by Judge Illanchelian (His name only appeared in a list but no evidence that he was attempting to participate) only give a push to extremists to say “See what happens when you trust those fellows!”. All in all this is of bad taste in so many ways.

    Apart from legality and complexity of the situation discussed, shouldn’t something be done to help the plight of Eezham Tamil refugees in India? The likelihood of them being settled to a third country is very slim now. Some of them returned only to find their lands taken over by settlers and left with no means to fend for themselves. I see this as nothing but a part of continuing structural genocide – dispossession of their lands and livelihood and disenfranchisement of Tamils forced to flee the island. This is why until you resolve structural issues with respect to the sinhala Buddhist state, their plight ain’t gonna change much. But is there a will to change?

    Champa every story/coin has two sides and in Lanka there are plenty (no sides). Why should we believe in yours???? As most of us are aware Mallaiyuran has been writing comments in his own way (how he sees it) . He definitely makes us to think, question and see from “out side of the box”. Where as you has been parroting and doing “copy and paste job”. I may not agree with Mallai a lot of times, but his comments are refreshing . I am still perplexed with your u-turn after MS saga but not surprised. Mallai has traced the core issues back to our independence which is absolutely true. Where as most Lankans are good at putting Band Aids on oozing ulcers. They prefer to be in denial .

      I never did copy and paste. I give the proof of facts letting anybody check the veracity.
      Fabricating stories on sensitive matters is not out of the box attitude. It is intentional misleading.
      Yeah, Mallaiyuran’s fiction can be refreshing to other Tamils.
      I said this before. I didn’t do any U turn. I was downright against MS appointing a Prime Minister bypassing Parliament practices and age old traditions as it will set a bad precedent in the future. That doesn’t mean I support Ranil, UNP and all other traitors and racists. I standby what I think is right. What others think doesn’t matter to me. I write as per my principles, not anybody else’s

    Rosemarry Dexter a British tourist has brought to our notice an important issue. Would the Sri Lankan populace along with politicians seriously take a stock of what Ms Dexter states.

    illancheliyan ‘s behaviour when his guard was killed is entirely a different matter. now teaming with the NP governor is despicable. he has to answer why he agreed. after his explanation (?) we can follow it up.

    The main question is did Judge Illanchelyan agree in writing to be in the team to go yo India . A verbal agreement is no proof. Ragavan although holds a PhD has no experience or knowledge about AR or FR in government service

    Thanks for some enlightening information that you have provided in your comments. In fact, it is widely believed that GGP voted for Indian Citizenship Act of 1948, thus disenfranchising the upcountry tamils. Whereas you have contradicted that belief by stating that GGP didn’t vote in favour of that Act.. Could you kindly tell us the source from which you have obtained this valuable information. Thanks

      GGP’s speech against this Act is in the Hansard pages 1821 – 1861. If you know any MP you could get it through him. I tried but not succeeded. Officers in the Parliament Hansard section don’t reply to the request I made. There is a Tamil booklet in Noolaham website under the name T Ilgovan, titled ” malai naadduth thamilaraukku thurokam ilaiththathu yaar ” Daily news of 8.11.2003 carries a short article on GGP by A Vinayagamoorthy. I might have found in K T Rajasingam’s book ” : the untold story ” but I am unable to open it. There are other books on upcountry Tamils and you could read it in the net.

    Thanks. Very much appreciated. Are the relevant pages in the Hanzard that you have mentioned in the year 1948?. Besides, why did SJV vote against Indian & Pakistani Residents ( citizenship act ).?
