Buddha’s ‘Blood Relative’ Tolerates His Tattoo But His Officials Can’t Tolerate Buddha Tattoo

By Colombo Telegraph

Last June, Pope Benedict XVI met with Sri Lanka’s president at the Vatican. After the meeting President Rajapaksa also met ‘Pachcha Sira’ .

Antony Ratcliffe, 42, from Nottingham, was turned back at Colombo’s main airport on Friday for allegedly showing a lack of respect for Buddhism. “I like the artwork in tattoos obviously and, due to my belief in Buddhist philosophy which I have followed for many years, I thought a quality tattoo of the Buddha was rather apt.” he told BBC.

“As soon as he saw it the chief officer went crazy. You could see it on his face, he looked really angry and said I would have to go back to London.They took my passport and held me there for an hour and a half. All the time they were bringing people in to look at my arm, and they were shaking their heads. I was explaining my case, pleading basically, and the chief officer just told me to ‘shut up, shut up’ and he refused to talk to me.” Ratcliffe further said.

In June 2011 delivering the welcome speech during the final of the ‘Ranaviru Real Star reality show contest, where President Mahinda Rajapaksa was the Chief Guest, actor and filmmaker Jackson Anthony has said that the Rajapaksas from Giruva Pattuwa in the Hambantota District are descendents of the Shakya King Suddhodana from Dambadiva and is therefore a blood relation of the Lord Buddha. Therefore, President Mahinda Rajapaksa is also a great, great grand son of King Dutugemunu, who is also related to Lord Buddha.

      Have you forgotten Prabakaran was so scared of visitors that he checked inside their mouths and buttocks. Anyway “Manjoka & Tea” is much better than “Donut and double double.”

      CT should not embarrass the joker Jackson Anthony by republishing his dribble.

        Embarrass this Joker Jackson Anthony? This bugger is no better than that JRP Suriyapperuma and Hadu Samarasinghe. I wonder whether this Jacked Anthony is also connected to Hamba MR. It is amazing to know from where their mothers have delivered them. If the Sinhalese claim they have been fathered by Lions, these buggers definitely been sired by the Paraya Dogs at home.

    Sir, the custom officers in the US have done bizarre things – say for instance – turned back a visitor for being rude at the customs. But I don’t see headlines that say, “Obama can’t tolerate rude people”. I like your site but increasingly, you are making everything political. Obviously, the SL custom officer was out of line. But really? Blame the president?

      @Sean
      Obama and his extended family do not govern the whole of USA. In Sri RajaPakistan, the country is run by the RajaPassa family and nothing happens without their blessings. Tourist with Buddha tattoos are harrassed because the RajaPassas’ have given their blessings. The Bodu Balu Sena and Sinhala Rawaya and other extremist groups are allowed to run riot only because the RajaPassas’say it’s ok.

      USA is a Democracy. At the end of 8 years, Obama, Michelle and their two daughters have to pack their bags and leave the White House.

      Sri RajaPakistan is a DemoCrazy…soon to become an IdioCracy. (watch the movie with the same title). This country will soon be like what is depicted in that movie. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idiocracy

      In Sri RajaPakistan unlike in the US, the RajaPassas’ can stay in ‘Hotel de Temple Palace’ until the day they die, because after the passing of the 18th amendment, time limits on the presiDuncy was removed, and RajaPassa can use computer Jilmarts to remain in power forever and ever…Amen. :)

      THAT IS WHY THE PRESIDENT AND HIS FAMILY OF 300 PLUS ARE BLAMED FOR EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS IN SRI RAJAPAKISTAN! :D

      It is for Sri Lanka to decide who they admit and who they refuse admission. Even if a VISA has been previously issued, the immigration officials have the right to refuse admission to foreigners. Admission to a foreign country is a privilege not a right and is at the discretion of the country.

      The argument presented in the article could be justified if evidence was presented showing many Sri Lankans showing tattoos of Buddha in public. For Buddhists here wearing tattoos of Buddha is not acceptable.
      It may be acceptable for Buddhists elsewhere. Yet if someone wishes to visit Sri Lanka as a tourist, he better respect the traditions and culture of people here. If not he can always stay away.

      While developing tourism authorities need to be very cautious of the people they admit to the country. More so than any cultural harm admitting individuals with no discipline or respect towards others in to the country could create huge social problems. This where indirect clues and evidence of character of people admitted becomes important.

        “Yet if someone wishes to visit Sri Lanka as a tourist, he better respect the traditions and culture of people here. If not he can always stay away.”

        Is there any publication by Tourist Board gives details of “dos and don’ts” in Sri Lanka.

        I would be grateful for a copy.

        @justice

        Ha…haa…in the future when Sri RajaPakistan goes from being a DemoCrazy to becoming an IdioCracy, safe guarding the RajaPassas’ will be considered as safe guarding Buddhism. Because according to Jackson Anthony and IdioCracy logic, the RajaPassas’are direct descendants of the Buddha.

        SO as long as the RajaPassas’ are safe, Buddhism will be safe! All hail the King and his royal family!

        One Country! One People! One Ruling Family! Jaya way waaaa! :)

    Try doing a tatoo of Mohammed and go to any Muslim country. There is nothing left for Christianity in the West. They are selling churches for houses and businesses in the United Kingdom. On Edge Lane in Liverpol there is a Church converted into a Hindu temple and it is the fact that a large number of the Christiansare not worried about what happens to Christanity. The LTTE can get support from the UK Government as long as the GTF and the BTF keep sending the money in.

      Try doing a tattoo of Mohamed? With what? There are no images of him.

      And yes, Europe is getting more and more secular. I don’t see anything particularly wrong with it- some if the most stable and prosperous nations on earth are secular and atheist- the Nordic countries.

      Islam is more interested in Practising the Word of Prophet Mohamed than worshipping his Images. It is high time that Buddhists began to Practise the Buddha’s teaching too. Worshipping Statues and images has become more important than Dhamma Practice!

    In future tourist will have to strip in front of the immigration and MOD to ensure that their hidden parts do not carry a tatoo. Also submit details of any tatoos with their online. Good work for our immigration.

    There is nothing left to disgrace the country, already we had enough and more disgrace. Only way we gain back it again by chasing away all these scoundrels, dirty, shameless, corrupt and self serving politicians who are packed in the parliament. That’s going to be the day we all going to see the good day for the country and people. For 62 years we had enough with this dirty lot. The people shouldn’t give even a drop of water for them when they come next time for out votes.

    Wow, what a wide range selection of tattoos. I never knew it was such a fad and could be drawn to this degree of artistic clarity. After all it must all be hand drawn into the skin using pin and ink. Can it be erased later, or you just die with it? I guess the pain and blood must be all worth it for those who crave for it. But the Imigration guy must feel offended by what he feels is an insult to Buddhism, being a Buddhist. I wonder how he would have reacted if it was a tattoo of Christ, the Cross or a Tamil God or goddess. I guess ce wouldn’t mind it in stone (statue) and in pivtures. I think there is also a Guinness World Record for most number of tattoos on a body. Like to see what pictures that would depict.

      This is very true.

      Coming ahead of us, we ll get lot more of this – wait and see,

      This current day lanka governed by rascals. Instead of giving a nice message to the tourists keep coming to the country- they treat them as tattooed people are criminals.

      Just a warning could have been more than enough, poor man cant change it instantly because tattoos are not easily erasable. Just for these issues only, the rulers seem be rigorous while they let crminals like Mervin, Murderers of Britisch tourist a year ago scot free or get bred more of them.

      Good luck to our folks – ABOUT to be isolated in the world sooner than though just because of the Rajapakshes.

    The on-line Visa application can from now on include the question about
    Tatoos – describe them and in which part of the body. The BBS/MOD
    can issue the guidelines. This will save much ado about nothing.

    People of all religious faiths wear Tattoos . In doing so they are happy they are close to their faith and lead their life’s accordingly.The BUDDHA PREACHED TOLERANCE . So , Sri Lanka live with LOVE AND COMPASSION AND TOLERANCE . There are not only tattoos of the Buddha , there are various types of CARDS- BIRTHDAY, GET WELL , THANK YOU , SYMPATHY , WEDDING , TEXT BOOKS AND STORY BOOKS AND VIDEOS AND CDS ETC ; WITH THE BUDDHA’s PICTURE . The immigration officer at the Airport should be interdicted and sent for further training and the re- instated on the job. Great Britain is an important TRADING PARTNER OF SRI LANKA . WATCH PUT SRI LANKA YOU HAVE IN RECENT TIMES SCORED MANY BAD MARKS AND THE SUPER POWERS ARE KEEPING AN EYE ON YOU AND YOU DO NOT WANT TO BECOME ANOTHER LIBYA OR EGYPT OR IRAQ. YOU SEE THE GAME HAS BEGUN – CANADA, AUSTRALIA, GREAT BRITAIN , NORWAY , SUDAN AND THE GENEVA CONFERENCE HAVE BEGUN TO HAVE AN ADVERSE VIEW OF YOUR ACTIONS . DO NOT LIVE IN A DREAM WORLD THAT CHINA AND PAKISTAN WILL BACK YOU UP AGAINST THE SUPER POWERS . THEY WILL WITHDRAW SUPPORT AND YOU WILL HAVE TO BEAR THE BRUNT OF YOUR ACTIONS . ITBIS NOT TOO LATE FOR SRI LANKA TO DEMOCRATICALLY TAKE SOME IMPORTANT ACTIONS AND BEGIN TO GET THE SUPPORT OF THE WESTERN SUPER POWERS AND AUSTRALIA . GOOD LUCK !!

    Briton with Buddha tatoo
    I fully endorse what Navin has said.
    I had no tatoo on my body when I was kept at the immigration point at the Heathrow Airport on 25th June 2003. I was only a former Ambassador to France and Iran then travelling on an Ordinary Ppt.with one year’s multi entry Courtesy ( gratis visa)visa to Schengen countries issued by the French Embassy and a Six months Multiple visa to UK issued by British HC without any questioning.
    What the female Immigrigation officer at Heathrow was trying to prove to me was it was she who decided finally if I would be allowed to enter Britain or not. That was correct.I knew it as a former Immigration-control(policy) officer myself.What more than amused me was that the way the officer who might not have been even schooling when I was an immigration Officer deciding on policy in Colombo, kept on questioning me for nearly half an hour as if I were a petty smuggler.
    The officer kept on asking how long I would stay in UK; why I had obtained a Six month’s visa; and what my programme was.
    I had come mainly to be present at the convocation at the Cambridge University where my youngest daughter was to receive her LLM Degree.there were other variables like doing some work at the British Library where I had done research earlier and published two academic papers based on Hugh Nevil Mss.I also had idea of having a medical check up at hospitals where I have had treatment early. My old Diplomatic PPT showed visa given by the British Embassy in Iran for multiple travel especially for Medical attention and I had to wait in London for one month just to get a hospital bed for one day’s investigation by a specialist.These explanations took some time.

    I was naturally upset over the grilling, esp.in my poor state of health after long distance travel and asked the officer to give back my passport as I changed my mind about entering UK and going to Cambridge which was my immediate purpose. I told her quite determinedly that I wanted to take the next flight to France where I knew I would be most welcome.It was only then she stamped my Ppt and allowed me in, swearing, as I noted.

    The lesson is that permitting entry to land for any visitor ultimately rests with the Immigration Officer at the point of landing, tatoo or no tatoo. That a country’s privilege. I see no reason why so much media attention should be focused, esp. by BBC on the Immigration Officer in Colombo questioning and refusing entry to the British national over using his discretion. For balance, BBC at least should acknowledge that this is a universal practice, much resorted to in UK.

      I am sorry to hear the way the British former empire treated you.

      The immigration officer would have suspected of you being a potential illegal bogus asylum seeking, medical tourist intent on living off from the state just as many Tamils and Sinhalese do in the UK.

      All Sri Lankans visiting the West are not really tourists but they travel with a view to settle in one of those affluent countries whatever means they have access to.

      I regret that my ancestors didn’t have such stringent immigration rules in the ancient times which I still believe would have prevented Kallthonies from North and South of India to my island.

      I think the female Immigration officer at Heathrow did the right thing, she was only doing her job. If I were her I would not have let a single Lanky into UK as they are the descendants of illegal immigrants, including MR.

      I feel sorry for you. But if you go back to the root cause, there are many events took place for them to act like this.

      I hope you read srilankaLankaXnews web. Go and read the top news. Now our Italian Ambassador has to return suddenly.

      Also from the time SWRD Bandaranaike came to power how we distanced ourselves From the West for political reasons,while Nationalising many British Companies, the way Sirima Bandaranaike Nationalised all Sterling Pound Companies including Tea Plantations and factories overnight, while British Bashing continued as a Political weapon upto calling back Sri Lanka’s Italian Ambassador says much story behind.

      Also LTTE was was much politicised than finding an answer by respective governments sending negative signals across world. During 1990’s Myself and my son were questioned by both Immigration officials at Paris Airport on Transit visa and at London on a two week stay.

      We have to put up with these….and may be worse in Future.

      Mr Bandu Silva,

      I totally agree with what Navin and you have stated. I am also very sad to hear of the treatment meted out to a respectable former diplomat of your calibre by a an upstart immigration officer. I have found that the lady immigration officers at Heathrow/Gatwick tend to be nastier than their male counterparts. I have also seen “the non-native” immigration officers are even nastier than their “native” counterparts at Heathrow/ Gatwick.

      People who travel to the USA or the UK have stringent checks . Those who do not travel frequently are not aware of these . Just focusing on SL immigration officers without taking into account ,how the SL are treated by the UK visa authorities is a shame . I have heard of many stories, sometimes even keeping visitors from SL to the USA for over five hours while checks are done . This is the norm where an immigration officer feels , there is cause for concerm .This immigration oficer should have consulted his superiors and then made a decison .

    This clown looking Jackson Anthony is another Paid “Vandi Battaya” Joker of the dummy king kong Rajapakse.

    When I was small my father told me three things which I never forget. They are…

    1)In Negombo when he worked as a Planter when somebody dies you need people cry near the corpse for three days. The more louder you cry, the more love you show to the dead. Therefore since one cannot cry for three days…..there are women you could pay and hire to cry.

    So whenever I see Jackson Anthony, I always remember what my father said.

    2) He also said about the word ” Pamporiya” which means in villages after an engagement or a wedding Lunch or Dinner…..either from Bride’s or Groome’s side there’s a hired guy or a relative that give a talk praising highly about Bride’s or groom’s family, their ancestors, their assets, wealth, business, connections, relatives etc..etc.. praising so highly that he could take one to a Wonder Land. All depends on how much you pay him.

    Similarly this Clown looking Jackson Anthony is a paid Clown paid to tell Pamporiya about Rajapakse.

    I will take any bet with anybody if they could prove me wrong…..and that is…….When SWRD Bandaranaike was touring down south and when he was passing Paddy Fields he saw D.A.Rajapakse wearing Amude with his Buffalows ploughing his paddy field and called him to join him……and that’s how DA Rajapakse joined politics.

    Also the history I read was until Portuguese landed our shores, the men wore a piece of cloth (amude) covering their loin area similar to Veddas….and bare body, and women were also same and were topless. You mau still see some if you go through history books and archives both in Sri Lanka and in Portugal.

    This Jackson anthony is a paid Clown Joker of MR to praise him.

    Also this Kneeling and bowing and scotting…..all MR commedy game show to impress others. Surely Both MR and Jackson Anthony is more suitable to live in SWAZILAND AND NOT IN SRI LANKA.

    The history I read said when Portuguese landed our men climbed trees to see them from distance. And when they fired their cannons, due to the sound and thunder, our ancestors fell from trees like coconuts. I am not putting them down….but this is the truth. Also how Portuguese brought Wine, grapes, cheese and bread to the King and after he got drunk, they had access to his harem….all is in archives on Sri lanka’s history.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colonial_history_of_Sri_Lanka

    Whatever “pamporiya” Jackson Anthony tell about Rajapakses or children and elderly Kneeling down at Rajapakses in front of audience…… still MR cannot go to West without getting booed and possible arrest and also there’s a 10 million bounty on his head in India. So it’s getting serious for King Dutugemunu reincarnate to move around freely.

    According to my opinion Mattala soil and the environment is best to grow DATE palm trees. Mattala could have been a huge date palm farmland which gives huge profit and foreign exchange, and easy to grow, maintain, store and preserve.

    Now mattala has changed to a Hutt…la with 3500 meters (14,000 feet) long, 75 meter ( 300 ft) wide, one meter (4 foot) deep runway…….and over another 100,000 sq, feet of concrete block covering car park, airline terminal, hangers, service areas etc.

    If anybody could calculate the amount of concrete used in Mattala could have easily built over 250,000 HOMES for poor Rizana families……and also could have provided electricity and water.

    100 million rupee each Brand new Fuel Bowsers imported for fuel transport to Mattala is abandoned in Katunayake due to Pump malfunction.

    Transporting fuel from Colombo to Mattala alone would cost over 10,000 rupees per trip.

    Detaining the British Tourist at the airport, I suspect is mostly an attention getter of the Rajapakses. Also may be due to…. Tit for Tat quick return of Rajapakses from the last two London tours.

    I already have a Big tummy Happy Budda (Chinese Mahayana laughing Buddha) Tatoo in my back….and will be visiting Sri Lanka soon. I did not know about this Prohibition business, and also which does not say in our constitution.

    May be in future SL Airport custom officers may have to check visitors bodies for Buddha Tatoos. I could cover mine whenever I want.

    One has to tell this MR paid clown Jackson Anthony not to disgrace dead king Dutugemunu anymore…..or Lord Budda’s ancestory link to a fake Hambanthota Joker family.

    Also IF jackson Anthony COULD tell THE NAME OF the king who ruled FOR ONE DAY ONLY…..YES THER’S A KING WHO RULED FOR ONE DAY AND THE NEXT DAY HE WAS KILLED BY ANOTHER JOKER AND TOOK THE CROWN.I cannot remember his name…..and there are many kings who ruled for ONE WEEK AND ONE MONTH ETC, I HAVE FORGOTTEN THEIR NAMES.

    I HOPE SRI LANKA’S NEW JOKER HISTORIANS HAVE NOT RE-WRITTEN OUR HISTORY WITH KING DUTUGEMUNU LINKS TO RAJAPAKSES.

    CLOWNS ARE PAID JOKERS TO LAUGH AT…..LIKE US COMEDY CENTRAL TALK SHOW.

    In London there is a restaurant named ‘Buddha Kitchen’ selling all kinds of meat and liquor, there are several different types of small statues with the names’Laughing Buddha’, ‘Smiling Buddha’ in different shapes being sold all over, there are several Sinhala Buddhists employed in the Halal Chicken restaurants chain ‘Sam Chicken’ owned by a Sri Lankan. Will the BBS take note of this and act. Will it be a protest outside the British High Commission in Colombo; a demonstration outside the Colombo residence of the Sri Lankan restaurant owner; or will they come to London to launch their protest?

      And the owner of Sam Chicken Restaurants group donated a handsome amount to the Ranaviru Fund for the Sri Lanka soldiers who are mostly Buddhists. That money should not be used for the welfare of the Buddhist soldiers as it was earned from selling Halal chickens.

    Humans should have moral values they not like animals, in animals no so called morals, in same family they can do sex since they do not have sense, it is like in western countries most of them have very good education but lack of values and respect. There sould not be any disrespect to relegion leaders. If they do same in Islam they will be behaded in middle east countries. everything they are doing for Sri Lanka.
    Many people do not like Mahinda Rajapaksha President, because he destroyed Terrorists, now some fraction they do not like Rajapaksha because of this very reason.

      Is there not a difference between an innocent action and the deliberate action. For whatever reasons every other white-skinned man or woman has some tattoo designs on them. The tourist in question would have chosen the design not knowing that it is offending to the Buddhists. If he had done it innocently he should not be punished.

      Kapila,

      First of all you should read, research and do homework before you write……and write the truth and not lies. Please read my following and answer them…..

      1)It was Gen.Sarath Fonseka who won the LTTE war and helped winning it.

      2)It was Gen Fonseka who said that he will finish the war before end 2009 and he kept his promise while survived three assassination attempts on him by LTTE. He was lucky enough to survive while during the last assassination attempt, he had to carry his own intestines to hospital t from his car and to the hospital.

      3)Gen.SF is a married man with two daughters, and no man will risk his life to stay and put fight, after three assassination attempts unless he is a true Patriot and a true liberator.

      4)Where was Defense Secretary during hight of war……pumping gas and working as office asst. in USA, came during latter part of the war to take over Arms and Logistic supply to forces. He was never in the front line during final days of war, but was coordinating logistics to forces which was a lucrative business.But after end of war MARA’s jailed the same Gen Sarath Fonseks who helped us winning the LTTE war.

      5) When it comes to Mattala Airport, we citizens told many times that it is not a suitable location as well as not worth the investment in comparison to the Returns. Mattala is an animal habitat and not an industrial hub. Same with the Hambanthota Harbour.

      6)GOSL could have built over 250,000 homes for poor, needy and war refugees with the concrete spent to build Mattala AP.

      7)How about the Environmental, both to plant and animal with harmful noise and toxic air pollution and climatic change due to change in envirinment. Remember Concrete is the highest heat generator where it send back the CO2 heat that comes to earth back to atmosphere creating climatic change. Concrete is the least heat absorber and much worse than a desert sand.

      8)Both Jaffna and Ratmalana airports were available as a second emergency landing for International flights. GOSL couls have expanded their runways to cater to International flights. In Japan and other parts of world there are runways expanded over Bridges, and Ratmalana runway could have extended using this technology.

      9)Other than LTTE attack at Ratmalana, there were no other incident happened to turn away any airplane to India or any other country. Any plane could change it’s course to land anywhere far ahead in advance due to communication technology…..and this is no excuse at all to built another wasteful airport in Hambanthota.

      10)According to my thinking Mattala is most suitable to grow DATES Palm trees in that massive area for export and local consumption.
      With low investments and very low maintenance and OH costs involve and very high Yield and profit margin and environmental friendly… DATE PALM TREE FARMS would have been the ideal. Also similar to California Apple, Grapes and Orange farms…..Mattala would have been ideal for fruit growers and would have also utilised for WINE industry.

      11) Already 28 flights to Trichi has been redused to Half (14) per week by Sri Lankan Airlines due to unrest there. What is GOSL doing with these Idle flights.

      12)Each hour a plane idle in the ground looses at the rate fo 2,500 US Dollars Per Hour. What are these Air lines do with this lost tours and time….

      13)British Airways is starting London/Dubai/ Katunayake flights in April 15th. What will happen to Sri Lanka AL Industry…..

      14)Already Sri Lankan/Mihin Air looses 50 Million Rupees per day, and each additional land/ take off at Mattala burns 4000 gallons of Jet fuel costing 2 Million additional rupees. Who is paying this extra expense.

      15)Daily opperational/ OH and logistic expenses at Mattala costs 25 Million Rupees Per Day. Who is meeting this extra expenses….

      16)Rajapakse Paid Joker and Clown Jackson Anthony trying to Link President Rajapakses to ANCESTRAL AND BLOOD CHAIN TO LORD BUDDHA AND KING DUTUGEMUNU. WHERE AND HOW HE GOT THIS LINK. CAN HE PROVE ANYTHING IN HAMBANTHOTA LIKE A KING DUTUGEMUNU’s PALACE…OR A VALAVUWA OR ANY STRUCTURE THAT SHOW DUTUGEMUNU LIVED IN HAMBANTHOTA. I was covering whole hambanthota district for many years including Tissa, Ambilipitiya, matara,Galle districts,Balangoda, Ratnapura, Kahawatte, and many other areas. I never came across any of these to prove Rajapakses link to King Dutugemunu.

      17)Infact Both Gotabaya and Basil Rajapakse has features of Malays. I do not have info. on how Moroccans look other than youTube….to link to a Moroccans ancestory as history say that both Moroccans and Malays and ME traders came to Sri Lanka for trade. Only Chamal Rajapakse has features to D.A.Rajapakse….and others are doubtful.

      18)Therefore if Jackson Anthony trying to Link Rajapakses Ancestory to Lord Budda or King Dutugemunu…….can he and you have a RAJAQPAKSE DNA TEST TO CONFIRM THEIR LINK TO LORD BUDDHA AND KING DUTUGEMUNU ANCESTORY. DNA TESTR WILL GIVE THE TRUE ANCESTORY OF RAJAPAKSE FAMILY AND IT’S MEMBERS.

      19)Remember Kapila we are not trying to discredit anybody. But we don’t want paid jokers like Jackson Anthony to re-write our history to give some fake lies and deceive our future generation for Rajapakse Kappan and Bribe OK. No more Fuc….ng lies, deceive and power grab. We only look for truth and justice.

      20) Therefore please don’t try to give us names like Terrorists, or Foreign conspirators or Foreign NGO’s simply because we look for truth and Justice and we are not been paid a single penny by anybody for looking for truth and justice.

      PLEASE DO YOUR HOMEWORK BEFORE YOU REPLY TO MY ABOVE COMMENT.

          I respect every deserving person. I respect Lord Buddha, King Dutugemunu and all others who helped our country in various ways.

          It was until Jackson Anthony telling that Rajapakses are descenders of Lord Buddha and King Dutugemunu……that is now to me and all of Sri Lankans who studied History for so long was a shock. He also say after King Parakramabahu, President Rajapakse is the sixth king in Sri Lanka…..which is quite a seriou statememt. Very soon President Rajapakse will be added to the History book as Lord Buddha’s ancestry and King Dutugemunu link.

          Why Rajapakses link was not been told to us in our History classes before.

          How about Bandaranaikes, Jayawardenas, Pilimatalawas in Kandy, Athulath Mudalis, Dissanayakes, Delas,Munasinghes etc…etc…Aren’t there any liks for them…….

          THE EASIEST WAY TO PROVE RAKAPAKSES LINK TO LORD BUDDHA is TO DO A DNA TEST.

          We already have Buddha Relics including his tooth in Kandy Dalada Maligawa and could easily do a DNA test to check with D.A. Rajapakses…..Mahinda, Gotabaya, Chamal, Basil Rajapakses link to Lord Buddha.

          THIS WILL PROVE JACKSON ANTHONY’S THEORY AND CLEAR OUR DOUBTS AND OUR HISTORY.

      Kris,

      First of all Just to let you know that I am not a cloth washer for anybod, and I am not paid a single penny by anybody to take their sides. I only look at issues on a wider angle to see the truth.
      That’s all.
      If I can write something very brief…..yes MR and Gota extended SF’s stay purely after seen his winning strategy shown to them. There were many who criticised SF saying, Sri Lankan Forces are going to Pamankada saying they are going to Alimankada etc.etc.

      Also there were many previous Generals who led the war, but failed. It was only Gen.General SF that planned and executed according to a plan while evading three suicide attempts.Also SF said he will finish the war before end 2009 and he kept his promise.

      Of course Air Force and Navy helped, but the final battle had to be fought on ground and SF executed properly.

      The only concern I have is when I see the youtube video clips of final battle at Nanthikandal Lagoon and the final photo shop of the majors sitted and taken photos…..I don’t see Gen. SF there. He would have been the main person to be present there, but I don’t see him. Also I herd that Gen SF was in China from May 11 to 19, 2009 to purchase arms. Therefore my questions are…

      1)Who sent Gen. Sarath Fonseka to China to purchase Arms, when the very last phase of war Victory was at sight. (war was declared over on May 19, 2009)….when Gen.SF was in China as per Sunday Leader.

      2)Why GOSL wanted to purchase war material at the end of war, knowing even if they are purchased will take atlest 3 months to come, and by that time the war was already over.

      3)Who was leading the war when Gen.SF was away. Video clips show that Gen. Shavendra Silva war leading the war while there’s no trace of Gen.SF.

      4)Who killed LTTE captured soldiers, tamil civilians, LTTE surrenders to army, Brabhakaran’s 12 year old son.

      5)Why Gen.SF said in Daily Mirror interview that he was present at the last stages of war. If so where are his video clips (in Youtube)or photographs to show that he was there. I did not see any.

      6)Sunday Leader clearly say Gen. SF was in China from 11 to 19 May 2009.

      7)Who instigated the White Flag incident….It was Gen SF. If so why he said it.

      8)There are many clips on Youtube on killed LTTE and tamil people. Who took those photos, and why.

      9)It is Jackson Anthony who said that Rajapakses are related to Lord Buddha and King Dutugemunu….and not me.

      10) If so why don’t you Kris suggest that in future inplace of erecting Buddha statutes in Sri Lanka including in Pansalas…they could start erecting RAJAPAKSE STATUTES ….as Rajapakses are related to both Lord Buddha and king dutugemunu.

      11)Already people, children, UPFA ministers and Govt.MP’s worship Rajapakses where ever they go.

      12)Also when they erect Rajapakse statutes replacing Buddha statutes…….They can also erect “pin pettiya” till box by the side so that the Rajapakse’s 10% (ten present) franchise logo will be carried on to future generatios.

      Hope I answered your question.

    Having read all the comments, I believe we need not go that far. In any given country the discretion of admission of a foreigner lies with the Controller of Immigration or his authorized officer at the border despite visitor being issued a prior visa. I, for one, if I were called upon to decide would have denied the entry for the simple reason that it would be difficult for Sri Lanka to maintain his security with such a tattoo on. Should the poor tourist be admitted and then if he were to be manhandled by the people of a given locality then it is the foreign government who would say that there are no security for tourists.

    The correct process would have been to politely inform the tourist that his demeanor is abhorrent to the local populace and therefore the entry is denied for his own sake instead of stares and other gestures.

    Punishment will come to the Jarapakshas’ as surely as day follows night. What it will be like is clearly depicted in the movie Judgment at Nuremberg.
