BJP Aspiration To Rule The Neighboring Countries

By Latheef Farook

Latheef Farook

Chief Minister of India’s Tripura State, Biplab Deb, sparked off a controversy over the weekend when he revealed that Indian Home Affairs Minister Amit Shah intended to establish Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Governments in Sri Lanka and Nepal.

Chief Minister Kumar, addressing a political rally recently, claimed Home Affairs Minister Shah intends forming a BJP Government in Sri Lanka, to create an ‘Atmanirbhar South Asia’.

Under fire over Deb’s comment, the BJP said it has been spreading Indian culture and philosophy in different countries.

BJP spokesperson Nabendu Bhattacharya said, “Our work to spread our Indian culture and philosophy in different countries apart from India started many days back. Contesting elections is not our prime agenda. We focus on winning the hearts of people of different countries.”

Meanwhile, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on 14 February, commented about his visit to Jaffna and his pride in creating history as the first Indian Prime Minister to have made that trip.

Modi highlighted his Government’s intentions in enriching the Tamil community through various infrastructure projects which have already improved the housing, health, and transportation facilities of the district. He again reiterated that Tamils of Sri Lanka will not be left alone and India will always push Sri Lanka to fulfill demands of Tamils.

Expanding the BJP’s footprint and establishing its rule in Sri Lanka would be a bad influence, said Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) National Organiser and Parliamentarian Tissa Attanayake.

Attanayake noted that no one could interfere in the internal affairs of another state by force, adding that it shows the possibility of a threat.“If the BJP or any party tries to get involved in the internal politics of Sri Lanka, it would relate to racism or other issues where our party does not agree,” Attanayake noted.

“Allowing such influence can affect Sri Lanka’s democracy. We need co-operation between parties, but it does not mean that a country or a party should interfere in the internal matters of a country and in this regard, we have a fair suspicion that the BJP movement can also be a threat,” Attanayake further added.

The Government of Sri Lanka has announced that it will not be politically engaging with the issue of India’s ruling political party, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), announcing plans to form governments in neighboring countries including Sri Lanka. However, Nepal has officially taken up the issue with India.

The BJP advocated hindutva (“Hindu-ness”), a violently anti Muslim ideology that sought to wipeout Islam and Muslims and define Indian culture in terms of  Hindutva values. It was highly critical of the secular policies and practices of the Indian National Congress (Congress Party). The BJP began to have electoral success in 1989, when it capitalized on anti-Muslim violence when it  called  for the erection of a Hindu temple in Ayodhya in the very same premjse where 15th century Babri Masjid was located.

Indian Interference in Sri Lanka

Indian interference in Sri Lanka’s internal affairs is well known. In later 1980s and June 1987, Indian Air force dropped food, water, and weapons as the direct support towards rebels.  India directly helped the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE). The LTTE fought to create an independent Tamil state in the north and the east of the Island.

Later on, India tried to block Chinese and Pakistani military hardware exports to Sri-Lanka. Pakistan was on the brink of finalizing the sale of JF-17 thunder Fighter aircraft to Sri Lankan air force but India’s counter offer of Light Combat Air Crafts Tejas became a hindrance in the Pak-Lanka defense deal.

Sri Lankan president Sirisena has claimed once  the plotting of his assassination by Indian intelligence agency RAW. He claimed in 2018 “Indian intelligence Agency RAW was engaged in the activities to assassinate him (President Meithripala Sirisena). The Colombo correspondent of “The Hindu” Ms. Srinivasan has reported that Sri Lankan authorities were seeking “Chinese assistance to tap the evidence pertaining to the assassination plot”.

India’s interference in Sri-Lanka started from Lankan Civil war. Mahinda Rajapaksa had held RAW among those for the change in regime following his defeat in 2015. Colombo station chief of India’s spy agency RAW was accused of helping the opposition oust President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

 India denied the charges at that time. India has gone against Sri Lanka in UNHRC as well. Recently TNA leader has openly asked India to punish Sri Lanka in UNHRC. Colombo’s rethink on involving India and Japan in the trilateral development of the Colombo Port’s East Terminal has angered India and it has delayed on the Sri Lankan request for a debt-moratorium and currency-swap, one way or the other.

It is an open secret, that India is involved in insurgencies in all neighboring countries. India is supporting terrorists in Pakistan through Afghanistan; India supported  and trained Mukti Bani in Bangladesh and Tamils of Sri Lanka. Nepal Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli too has alleged that BJP led Indian Government was “trying to topple my government”. 

BJP led Indian government openly interfered in Maldives elections. Even during hearings of PCoI on easter attacks many security and intelligence officials named India behind the attacks and Sara (wife of a suicide bomber) has also escaped to India. Interference in neighbouring states has gained momentum after BJP has come to power.  BJP is punishing minorities in India and on contrary is instigating ethnic groups in neighbouring countries against the states.

Independent of the specifics involved, the larger Chinese border violence, India suddenly finds itself caught in a series of issues with smaller neighbors, all over again. This seems to be periodic and cyclic. Earlier this year, thus, Bangladesh, perceived as the most trustworthy of neighbors at present, reacted strongly to India’s Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and even cancelled ministerial visits.

Sri Lanka needs to look very critically on these revelations. On one side India asks Sri Lanka not to comment on it’s revocation of statehood for its disputed Jammu and Kashmir region because it was an internal matter, while Modi asks Sri Lanka for power sharing with Tamils.

    Dear Latheef

    Thank you.

    You have omitted the most important part of our downfall and the humble beginning

    – FP/TC/TULF created the PLOTE/TELO/EPRLF/LTTE…and initially used them to kill descent in Jaffna from 1970-1977-1981……..termed the “Ratha Potu Killings Fields”.
    – The Tamil “children” were groomed/trained and grouped in Tamil Nadu accordingly to various needs over time (future planning) where the TNA (FP/TC/PLOTE/TELO) sat with the GOSL and LTTE allowed to continue.
    -Then they were used accordingly to take apart our Nation systematically along with the JVP doing their part down South is the story to date.

    No developing Nation can survive this crime on an unsuspecting population from their neighbours.

    You have skipped all this to get to the point of LTTE who fought the Indians as Indians allow them to dismantle as much as possible before “helping” the GOSL to finalise the war against the LTTE….now is the GOSL soldiers who have wronged someone too. .

    Anyhow “we are where we are” and “it is what it is” in the world of divide conquer ….Vietnam/Korea..Sudan all part of the same philosophy…..and the Indians are rewarded by “others” accordingly is why always a which hunt on the GOSL but not on foreign intervention….there is no end to this now the doors were opened by the FP period….see the struggle Hon Imran Khan having now with the Kashmir UN violations.

      It is well known fact now that India provided arms, ammunitions and its armed forces to Sri Lanka from 1987 till LTTE. Support provided by India and America was crucial in Sri Lanka defeating LTTE.
      Even though China and another 20 plus countries helped SriLanka, they were not crucial in defeating the LTTE.

      Pakistan is a dirt poor country even by South Asian standards. It is trying to punch above its weight. It is not Pakistan but China that the Western countries and India fear. Pakistan’s bloated self belief is not based on facts.
      That the present government is bent on oppressing all non Sinhalese Buddhists, even Muslim people welcome Indian involvement in Sri Lanka despite its Hindutva policies.
      Western countries find that oppression of non Sinhala Buddhists gives them the moral right to get involved in Sri Lankan matters.
      Sri Lanka must give up ethnic politics in favour of welfare of all Sri Lankans and not oppress non Sinhalese Buddhists. So far the Rajapaksa government had proved beyond doubt that it does not intend to walk the talk.

      Latif, the anti Indian rhetoric of yours show that you are nothing but an agent of Pakistan. Kashmir was a Hindu kingdom before being run over by Mugals. British drove Mugals out and restored the land to Hindus. Pakistan caused problem in Kashmir by invading it, and India went in as the King the legitimate ruler signed the accession to India. BJP says Kashmir is a Hindu land with Muslim majority and are quite right to take action to bring Hindu rule over entire Kashmir. Similarly BJP says Srilanka is a Hindu land with Buddhist majority and are quite right to take action to bring Hindu rule over entire island. Archaeologically it has been proved that original people of Sri lanka are Veddhas and Dravidians both of whom are Saivites, which backs BJP claim.

        Dr. Gnana Sankaralingam,
        There are no historical or archeological evidences to prove that Dravidians lived in Sinhale before Sinhalayo. If Dravidians lived why the hell those Dravidians were confined to Yapanaya peninsula which is the most arid part of the country until British dragged them from Yapanaya and settled them in coastal areas in the East. Demalu in Yapanaya who came from Hindusthan did not move out because they were scared of malaria.

    This is what President Rajapakse said after defeating LTTE in 2009.
    “I think my war is part of the South Asian campaign against terrorism. In fact, by eliminating the LTTE militarily, I have fought India’s war,” Rajapaksa said.
    Rajapaksa thanked the Indian government for its support in the war against the Tamil rebels. He made particular reference to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress president Sonia Gandhi.
    “My victory coincided with her (Sonia’s) electoral victory. I have written to her congratulating her on winning the elections. India’s moral support during the war was most important,” Rajapaksawas quoted by The Week magazine as having said.
    Rajapaksa said, “nothing is more important for me than what India thinks.”

    So, what is wrong with BJP aspirations to establish in Sri Lanka?

  • 7

    The BJP never officially mentioned that the BJP will operate in Sri Lanka. When there is a Communist Party in Russia in Russia and China, does it mean the Communist Party in Sri Lanka is been operated by those countries. Likewise when there was National Congress in India, does it mean the Tamil Congress and Indian Workers Congress are been operated by India. There is nothing wrong in spreading the Indian culture by the BJP through some other party in Sri Lanka in a democratic way. The BJP has not excavated the Mosques or Vihares like what is happening in the Northern Province. Now has anyone raised objections when China’s Communist Party prominent members had discussions privately with Mahinda’s party men inside a room during elections. The allegations by Latif Farook against BJP are without any foundation. Pakistan is already failed State and had already fallen within the Debt Trap Diplomacy of China. Moreover, India was acting within the scope of the UN Charter and in the spirit of SAARC. The dropping of the parcels from the Air in no way amounted to interference in Sri Lanka. It was a diplomatic tactic. Thereafter the Peace Accord was signed and was tabled before the General Assembly of the UN and the Western countries applauded it for tackling in a democratic way.

      AYATHURAY RAJASINGAM ,
      If Sri Lanka Air Force go and drop ‘Those and Masala Wade’ parcels to poor Dalits in Tamil Nadu will that also be considered as a diplomatic tactic?
      The Peace Accord became a ‘Pus Wedilla’ because no peace came as a result of the Peace Accord. It was Rajapakshes who brought peace to Sinhala, Demala, Muslim, Malay, Vedda Eththo and others after eliminating LTTE Tamil terrorists who massacred civilians using suicide bombers, claymore bombs, multi-barrel guns and chemical weapons.

      The dropping of the parcels from the Air in no way amounted to interference in Sri Lanka. It was a diplomatic tactic. Thereafter the Peace Accord was signed and was tabled before the General Assembly of the UN and the Western countries applauded it for tackling in a democratic way.

        Eagle Eye,
        The Peace Accord is still in force. When Sri Lanka creates obstacles for its own people no one can halp it. But if you think that Sri Lanka Air Force can go and drop Dosa & Masala Vada in Tamil Nadu, try and do it if they have the courage at least in Rameswaram. Tamil Nadu is not a country but a part of India. Remember I too was one who was against the LTTE. .

      Dear AR

      BJP is a good example why language and religious named parities shouldn’t be allowed in any democracy/secular societies.

      Anyone oppose to BJP or any other Indian party does not mean they do not respect Indian people or India as a Nation. It is in fact is the opposite as this is the beginning of the Indian and the regional downfall/undoing India that is going to deliver the population control and financing a suitable enemy for China agenda makers.

      You are trying to “normalise” and divert various Indian Governments foreign policy blunders in our Nation that requires the same UN intervention and punishment that applies to all the Nations. Now they work with the same UN resolution abusers in middle east as partners.

    Lathiff the Arab /Pakistani worshipping . converted, fake Arab immigrant South Indian Dravidian Tamil . We all know that you are an Islamic extremist. BJP has every right to open a branch here and will be welcomed by the Tamils in the island . Good this may stop our marginalisation, structural genocide, stealing of our lands for Sinhalese colonisation and destruction of ancient Hindu temples and other ancient Tamil Hindu and Buddhist archaeological sites by the Sri Lankan state, especially by this current war criminal Sinhalese Buddhist racist government . Fake Arab ,immigrant South Indian Tamil , Islamic fanatics like you ,Hizballah and the Satan from Mannar were also helping these Sinhalese racists to marginalise this island’s Tamils, with the view to steal our lands and Islamize the ancient Hindu Tamil North and East. This is why you are afraid of the arrival of the BJP and screeching. However Hindu and even Christian Tamil people in the island welcome the arrival of BJP.

    This writer is highly biased and suffers from warped thinking and illogical reasoning faculty.
    Way back in 2019, after the Easter Sunday bomb blast, he unashamedly suggested India could be behind the attack in his article titled “Who Is The Mastermind Behind The Easter Sunday Massacre?”, published in CT on 24.04.2019. Following is the excerpts from that article:
    Meanwhile questions were also asked why the bombers who bombed leading the hotels starting from Cinnamon Grand to Kingsbury did not bomb the Indian owned Taj Samudra hotel. On the other hand how come the Indian media and even Indian politicians knew more about bombings than the local media and local authorities? Furthermore, the intelligence shared by Indian RAW with the Sri Lankan authorities about possible attacks almost two weeks before the incident / release of identities of the Suspects and their ideologies gives credence to the suspected role of Indians deep state . It is also noticeable that if the attackers successfully targeted renowned Catholic Churches why they did not attack Indian High Commission which was also target of the terrorists.
    One wonders as to how India could be behind the attack, when Indian intelligence has informed well in advance of the impending attack, not once but few times repeatedly. This is akin to a burglar informing the victim beforehand of his act of burglary.

      Ratnam Nadaraja,
      It is good if India pay attention to its own issues without poking its nose into internal affairs of Sri Lanka. India is talking about Tamils in Sri Lanka because they are of Indian origin. But now they are citizens of Sri Lanka. If India is concerned about Indian origin Tamils, they should ask them to return to their Homeland without creating problems to Sri Lankans.

      “I believe India have its own issues.”

      The Hindutva agenda is something apart from the BJP government.
      You may know that it is the RSS that runs the BJP. The RSS has many fronts.
      I remember that the Visva Hindu Parishad had its tentacles reaching out here as early as the late 1970s. I personally knew a young person who joined out of anti-Muslim feelings and later dropped out after he learned that the Muslims were a far kinder people than some of his own folks.
      The Shiv Sena has VHP/RSS links.
      What should worry one is the fascistic Hindutva agenda that is being promoted here as anti-Christian and anti-Muslim campaigns in the North.
      Some Tamil MPs are viciously anti-Christian and anti-Muslim.

    What we saying is are setting up TNA in Tamil India for their next cause fight as they have done any Tamil fights in Sri Lankan to date. Only think they did was to be trained by the Indians and live in Colombo protected by the GOSL for the past 50 years.
    Now a “spent force” in all account be sent back to the Tamil Nadu Terrorist Training camps for refrehers for the “Separate Tamil Nadu” cause and be the special advisors as to how to topple Nations /foot soldiers for the Tamil Nadu Government.
    You can not keep having “Tamil” name to a party now run out people…mostly all died or left the Country and is only relevant they go to Tamil Nadu. No point in living amongst Sinhalese/getting married/making babies and having a life and speak for Tamil issues as elected in Jaffna is a bit wirred even by GS/Umberto/PK and several other devotees standards.
    You never know the Ceylonese Tamils ended up as Refugees 200 000++ and now new generations too all were given Indian Citizenship (some one please confirm I am correct in this assumption) a long time ago and ask to live in the camps for 50 years will vote for TNA in Tamil Nadu.

    The Indian Hindu extremists have always claimed Butan , Nepal and Sri Lanka as its extended atonomonous regions unofficially.
    In these three Countries quite a number of Indian origins of multi faith & multi racials also hold a special Indian status if their parents or grandparents are of Indian origins, it’s refered as Overseas Indian Citizens, they are also provided with a special travel document.
    Soon after the unfortunate Easter bombing , the Sri Lanka arm of Siva Senai’s militant leader appeared on TV and made various allegations against Muslims , Love jihad and Land grab were the main issues.
    .He also openly claimed he is training young people to subdue Islam and Muslim influence in Sri Lanka, I been told quite a number of Estate Tamil boys have moved to eastern province for training and also some Indian origin of other faiths work closely with his organization in trade etc.( both need to be verified, disclaimer )
    If this is true ,This could be the preparation of establishing a armed militant group in future Sri Lanka , as it is based on violent Religous extremism, like some Islamic terrorists, ignoring this threat could oneday lead to a fullfled arm conflict;where there could be a possibility of local powerful rich Indian origins with personal financial agendas and the Indian BJP promoting a dangerous terror outfit, from from both sides Sri Lanka Islamist extremists & Hindu.

      Send in our best intelligence officers to east.
      Our armed forces and their families must enjoy some special privileges, like better health care, subsidized food coupons at Sathosas, special low interest bank loans , Vehicle leasing , education for their children.
      Encouragement and appreciation of the Armed forces must remain a high

    Dear LZ

    Rather than religious leaders I would rather have military families lead a normal life amongst all the North and East communities. They will go to bases/work from home. This way we will solve many security issues / unwanted activities by the foreign scums/ ear and eyes for all that is required to protect communities / youth in the locality will get customer to seeing military men and women and hey will also join/enrol to serve their Nation.

    This will also freaup the land for civilian and military use a joint venture in all we do is the future. In fact this will just like a normalised life in all the democracies yet security is taken care without the “military” sticking out like a sore thump.

    This will normalise life/unwanted attentions yet provide all other positive needs of the Nation looking forward? There will be no ghetto left unattended like it was in Jaffna in 1970-1977-1981.

    Once we do this then we as a Nation can experiment anything we want as to best way to administer and develop the Nation in a progressive and scientific way. Less of religions/languages talks but strength of the military to support a very strong democracy no one will ever tamper with etc.

    Latheef Farook is a well known Islamic hardliner who constantly praises Pakistan and runs down India. He is an apologist for Islamic extremism in the island and blind to it. It is Islamic extremists and hard liners , like him who belittle their own actual Tamil origin and heritage and run behind the Arabs and Pakistan in the name of Islam and the Sinhalese for economic perks and benefits, are the main cause of rift between the Tamils and the Muslim Tamils or Moors in the island. No one is committing war crimes and structural genocide on the Kashmiri Muslims but Sri Lankan government , especially the present one , aided and abetted by certain local Islamic groups are doing to the Tamil population in the island. Especially the recent land grabbing and destruction of ancient Hindu temples in the north and east , with the idea of converting them to Buddhist places of worship , as a prelude to settle Sinhalese in these Tamil areas. Therefor it is right for India and the west to be concerned.

      Kashmir was once Hindu and there are many ancient and important Hindu shrines in Kashmir. Most of the present day Muslims in Kashmir are a result of forced conversions of local Kashmiri Hindus, that occurred a few centuries ago. The rest are descended from Afghan invaders. Just like the ancestors of 95% of the so called Sri Lankan Moors were largely low caste Hindu Indian Tamils. Mr. Farook has conveniently forgotten that around 400000 Kashmiri Hindus were ethnically cleansed from their homes and land by Pakistani backed Islamic militants and are still not allowed to return or the Jammu region is predominantly Hindu and these people are not Kashmiri and Ladakh is predominantly Buddhist and ethnically Tibetan and both these people do not want to be part of Muslim predominant Kashmir.

        Yes if BJP comes here it will be welcomed by the local Tamils and if if thrives in the Tamil areas it is because of State sponsored Sinhalese racism and marginalization of the Tamils and the deliberate destruction of their history , heritage , especially ancient Hindu temples and also due to Pro Arab pro Pakistani Salafist/Wahhabi Islamic hardliners and politicians like this author , deliberately creating rifts between the island’s Tamils and Muslim Tamils for their own agenda and benefits. These people will never want the island’s Tamil speakers or the greater Tamil nation to be united against the state sponsored Sinhalese racist menace. He and the rest of these Islamic Salafist/Wahhabi hardliners think are working for some sort of greater Islamic agenda and are agitating the local Tamil Muslim masses towards Wahhabi extremism and to hate their own ancient rich Tamil heritage. The Arabs and Pakistanis are only using them for their agenda and care two hoots for these largely dark skinned Tamil Dravidian converts to Islam. Have these people ever been to the Gulf and seen how the Arabs treat the South Asian and other Muslims the Philippines , SE Asia or Africa? This will be an eye opener to them. Pakistanis are the same .

          They are skin colour conscious and ethnic race conscious. The ruling Punjabi/Pashtun elite treat the Sindhi /Baluch and the Indian immigrant largely dark skinned Urdu speaking population that migrated from Northern India , called Muhajir ( meaning refugee) like dirt. This is why the former east Pakistan broke away and became Bangladesh, as these same people treated these largely dark skinned Dravidian/Mongol Bengali Muslims like dirt

      Siva Sankaran Sharma,
      What Tamil areas in Sinhale? North East was Sinhala areas occupied by Demalu (Tamils after 1911) from Hindusthan.
      Shameless Demala people who believe Gobble’s theory think if they keep on repeating blatant lies they can make them true. The propaganda campaign carried out by Tamil Diaspora against Sri Lanka and Sinhala Buddhists was based on blatant lies.
      Is there an equivalent to ‘Musawaada Weramani Sikkapadan Samadiyami’ in Hindu religion?
      —-
      “Especially the recent land grabbing and destruction of ancient Hindu temples in the north and east , with the idea of converting them to Buddhist places of worship , as a prelude to settle Sinhalese in these Tamil areas.”

    The Sri Lanka Athourities have apprehend a young female who had attended National Toweed Madarasa ,under Islamic Kawarij terorrist Zaharan, for classes in Islamic Creed of Modern Kawarijism,An extremist splinter group of of Neo Hanbalism, which promotes the dogma ,that anyone of the Islamic faith who sins and have not been practicing the rituals , especially the ritual prayers of 5 times must be put to death , and all other Muslims who are not guilty must swear alliegence to them.

    I really do not understand why people keep using the term wahabism, I am still to come across a new creed of Islam the late Sheik Muhammad Son of Abd Wahab had introduced, all I can find is his interpretation of Hanbalism in a more purist form , for which ther right terminology have to be Neo Hanbalism, , though newer , it’s yet Hanbalism , like any other Creed , you can not refer to Theravada Buddism as Theravada , you cannot refer to Catholism as non Christian nor Protestants as non Christians.

    Cont.

    So this ignorant branding of a Religous terrorist creed by the name of a Student of the School of Thought who has nothing to do with it, is a total injustice and insult towards an innocent dead who is absent to defend himself today ,degrading and false accusation of this Scholar in.hmustis father’s name ( another comic) must end once and for all , it’s funny and only portates those who continue to use the terminology as a functionally illiterate.

    Arrest of female Sri Lanka Islamic Khawarij ( Islamic extremists), is right by all means and investigating until conclusion is derived if she is a threat or not is acceptable.
    But why has the Senior Siva Senai and his students, which is the local arm of the ruthless RSS, who confirmed training Tamil Hindus not been apprehended and interrogated?
    It must be niped in the bud , if not I assure you, we will have a situation worse than LTTE or Zahan’s,
    This is all about violent Religous groups wanting to punish innocents to get even for the actions of another religous group akin to their ideology.
    It would result in open prejudice, bias and injustice not to do so and will only send wrong messages for both parties.
