Burning Of The ‘Cancerous Body’ Of The Buddhist Bhikku At Mullaitivu

By K. Anaga – 

Once again the dead Bhikkus have become the talk of the town and a ‘burning’ issue too. 

The first one was that of the Ven. Meegahajandura Gunaratna whose dead body was taken in circles and finally ‘burnt’ at the Jaffna esplanade with the blessings of the Magistrate, who heard the case against the burning of the body at the Jaffna esplanade. (Please refer my article ‘Funerals’ which appeared in the Colombo Telegraph of 2/5/18 in reply to Mr Jehan Perera’s writing in the LMD magazine of March 2018.)

Now, the ‘cancer’ of burning the dead body of another Bhikku has spread to Mullaitivu, that too in the premises of the Pillaiyar Temple (Ganadeyo Temple)Who is revered by Buddhists too to obtain personal favours, as lord Buddha apparently does not believe in granting favours to his devotes – rightly so. In Jaffna the magistrate condoned the actions of the army who seem to have their way and the Magistrate appear to have succumbed to it.

It appears that the Srilankan Buddhists have passed a ‘No- confidence’ motion on Lord Buddha as far as their demand for favours are concerned. 

But, in Mullaitivu, the Magistrate ruled against the action by led by Galagoda Atte Gnassara Thera, who had been let loose by our yahapalanaya president to commit more sins under his protection. The Magistrate ordered the ‘Cancerous Body’ be burnt outside the boundaries of the Pillaiyar temple. Nevertheless, the jurisdiction of the court was deliberately violated by the Armed Forces, Police Service, Lord Buddha’s Representatives- the Hamudurus, and the people who were encouraged by the Trio to desecrate the ‘Gods Little Acre’ by burning the ‘Cancerous Body’ in the temple premises.

I have deliberately used the word ‘burning’ instead the word ‘cremation’ purely because the latter is too good a word to be used on those who believe in the spread of ‘cancerous impunity’ which cannot be controlled even by chemotherapy.  It may only be treated by amputation of the affected part –the head and the brain within, if they have one. 

‘Cancer’ of burning has spread from Jaffna to Mullaitheevu and from Mullaitheevu it may spread to Kanniya in the Trincomalee District, where hot wells are situated with a Pillayar Temple within the premises. 

The people, who refresh themselves after a warm water bath of varying temperatures, worship the Pillaiyar and leave the place with great psychological satisfaction. Even, the Sinhala Buddhists bathers’ worship the said Pillayar after their bath, without any apparent inclination to capture the premises and plant the statue of Lord Buddha.  However, in the recent past Hamudrus want to demolish the Pillayar temple and plant lord Buddha’s statue, convert it into an exclusive Buddhist place of worship and claim ownership to the premises despite the fact a lady has documentary evidence to prove its ownership. 

It is rather unfortunate that ‘Pillaiyar’ and Lord Buddha are dragged into legal battles to ascertain the ownership of their ‘residence’.  

If this type of attitude of the Hamudurus are left unchecked, it could lead to disastrous consequences. Already Kathirkamam’s lord Murga has been Sinhalalised to an extent that the Tamil Hindus are unable to communicate with Lord Murga in Tamil and get their favours granted.   After visiting Kathirkamam with lots of hope and ending up with nothing, is a pity indeed. 

It is similar to Tamil speaking people visiting some of the government departments to get their needs attended to and return with empty hands, due to language difficulties.

The surrender of the Hindu Sampanthar and the Anglican Sumanthiran to the Buddhist Ranil has resulted in irreparable damage to the Tamils.

I believe in the democratic right of any one to practice his/her religion without fear or hindrance. However, I am opinion that a religion is not necessary for man to exist but man is necessary for religion to exist, despite the resulting chaos.

More crimes have been committed in the name of religion rather than without it.

    Hindu people, please don’t be superstitious.

    There’re thousands of dead bodies of animals & plants under the ground of your temples & your gods know that too.

    The dead body/ash of that monk will perish & become nutrients for plants some time later, so be happy & thankful for that cremation.

    If possible plant a coconut/palmyra/flower plant on monk’s grave.

          The Buddhist vihara was not there until a few years ago. Its is a 10 ft by 10 ft structure. I happen to be from Mullaitivu. The monk who died, like Galaboda Gnanasara and Zahran were Gothabhaya acolytes. It you who is either silly or worse simply hateful. Remember, these monks don’t like Islam either!

              Date palm is alien to Sri Lanka so it’s not my personal choice.

              But to my knowledge there’re useful trees grown on Muslim burial grounds too.

              Muslims don’t embalm dead bodies so quality of the manure must be high.

            When going gets tough, you seem to have chosen deceit and lies. You will make all sorts of claims and descend to the lowest levels. The message is clear, Sri Lanka is not divisible based on ethnicity or religion. The Tamils can cremate or bury their dead in any where in Sri Lanka including the backyards of Buddhists, so Sinhalese should be able to do the same wherever it is appropriate. It may be Jaffna, Mulaitivu, Colombo or Kandy… Stop making denigrating comments about other religions and religious leaders. Get the message and do not attack the messenger.That was the strategy of Piribakaran and the gang.

              Out of 25,330 sq miles couldn’t the thugs find a suitable place to burn the dead body other than the sacred temple premises?

              If you value the freedom and right of the corpse that much why didn’t you take the dead body to your home and perform its last rites in the middle of your house or donate it to a teaching hospital where it would be more useful than when the person was alive.

            Thank you for using “don’t like” instead of hate.

            There’re likes & dislikes for people.

            Do you like Sinhalese?, Do you like Buddhists?, Do you like Gota?, Do you like galaboda Atte?

            If you like Sinhalese & Buddhists, why don’t you like that Buddhist temple & the monk.
            Were you right to say the monk was Gota acolyte?

            Shall we correct it as Gota was that monk’s acolyte.

      “Once again the dead Bhikkus have become the talk of the town and a ‘burning’ issue too. “
      “More crimes have been committed in the name of religion rather than without it.”

      This is called Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhism” , and the monk is a Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhist” Monk, and all the imbeciles, Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhists”, prostrate to these imbecile minks, who were recruited as child monks at age 7, given the back treatment by the Senior Para-Monks, at the temple, and they get cancer.

      Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhism” is a distortion of Buddhism, and is an insult to the Buddha.

      Now they ant the Para-Monks to be cremated in the Hindu Temple Premises, as they do not believe that they will not salvation and Nibbana, if cremated elsewhere.

      They will just pollute the atmosphere, and contribute to the greenhouse gases. They will not get to Nirvana, Nibbana or Apaya. They will be just oxidized. How can one explain this to mean IQ 79 imbeciles?

        These so called fake Arab South Indian origin , Dravidian converted immigrant Muslim revolutionaries , only get belligerent when the same extremist Buddhist monks attack them , but rejoice when they start attacking Tamils and even encourage and join them, as seen by many of their comments here. These low lives are Tamil by ethnicity but in the name of Islam deny it and claim some sort of imagined Arab origin , that only a few of them have in very small doses and to justify this fake claim , dress and act more Arab than the Arabs themselves and will support anyone who destroys the Tamil language , heritage and Hindu religion . There are very disgusting, selfish back stabbing bunch, who are a curse on the island’s Tamil population. They only claim to be Tamil when they run to the west to claim for asylum as their Muslim and fake Arab identity will not give them this.

          Okay, let’s say, Muslims don’t accept they are Tamils because they want to be uniquely identified. Then again, you too don’t want to be identified as a Tamil from Tamil Nadu ORRRRIGINALLY to call yourself, ‘indigenous to Sri Lanka’. What’s the difference?

    Today some element of Sinhalese are caught up in superiority complex. Soon after defeating LTTE, they feel arrogant and proud. sometime they have become racists too. This is not for all Sinhalese .90% of are good people. they want to live in peace with Tamils and other community and yet, some extremists monks behave badly. where will this take this nation again. sadly into another blood bath. Do not dream to become Singapore but another Somaliaya if this kind of unwanted incident take place.

      Wonder whether you’ve over estimated to say 90% Sinhalese are good.

      If 90% are good how can there be corrupt politicians in power?

      This is relevant to Tamils & Muslims as well.

      The truth is that there were Tamils’ with superiority complex during the period when the LTTE were leading the killing fields.

      Sad to say that they’ve now turned into inferiority complex after the defeat of their beloved hero Prabha & the LTTE..

      Even the judge who gave the judgement not to bury the remains of dead monk’s body in temple premises seems to be affected with inferiority complex.

      What is racist about stating the truth that this extremist rogue Buddhist monk , who was illegally trying to convert an ancient Hindu temple to a Buddhist Vihara with fake history and the support of Sri Lankan state , the Archeological Department that is full of Sinhalese ractists the Sri Lankan armed force and police, dying of cancer and was also spreading the cancer of racism an d religious lies and bigotry. These people are acting with impunity and false bravery , because they have the Sinhalese Sri Lankan state and the armed forces and police behind them, as seen on the video. Openly flouting the law. Otherwise they will be hiding in some corner. They never dared to this when the LTTE was ruling protecting all Tamils and the Hindu religion.

    Anga seems to think that he/she can insult the dead monk by using the word cancer. It was the cycle of birth, ageing, sickness and death that prompted prince Siddhartha to embark on that great exploration. So any sickness and resultant death is of no magic to Buddhists. A monk passed away. His dayakas wanted perform the last rites in the premises where he lived. I don’t think Lord Pillaiyar had any issue with it. After all as another commentator mentioned, there may many dead animals (& some human remains) buried in that premises for hundreds of years. The issue here is the exclusivist racist Tamil mindset that no “other” can have any claim to even an inch of land in that part of the country. Even the dead.

      He was illegally squatting on the premises of a Hindu temple trying to convert it to a Buddhist Vihara with the help of Chingkala government , Chingkala Fascist Archeological department that is now very busy concocting a Chingkalla Poutha Fairy tale with regards to the Thamiz North and East, and Chingkalla armed forces. Therefore this is not the place where he lived , he was a rogue Buddhist monk trying to steal someone else’s land and place of worship for the Chingkalla Poutha Fascists. There are no Dayakas there. They all arrived from the south deliberately bused in with lots rowdy Buddhist monks. If they wanted to bury him and show respect to his nasty thieving and trespassing habits , they should have taken him and buried or burn them at their homes or local pansalas or Viharas or even at your home, so that you can worship him and venerate him for the rest of your evil good for nothing life.

      Stating the truth is very insulting to you Chingkallam but not everything else. Genocide , ethnic cleansing and war crimes on Thamizh is fine and even a burning the dead body of this cancer ridden racist rogue Buddhist monk, who was illgally squatting inside this Hindu temple and trying to convert it to a Buddhist Vihara with fake history , by other Chingkalla racists and rowdy monks inside the premised of a Hindu temple against the wishes of the Thamizh and desecrating the sanctity of this temple is fine to you . What about the Buddhist monk rowdies assaulting the Thamizh lawyers and the Iyer who dared to question these rowdies? Is that fine to you too. I cannot believe that Colombo Telegraph allowed to post your insensitive nasty comment. It is not the writer but you seem to have escaped not from a madhouse but from hell.
      If there were any ancient Buddhist relics around this area , it has nothing to with this monk or the Chingkallams , as these would have been definitely the ancient Thamizh Naga Buddhist ruins and the present Thamizh Hindu population living in the area , are their descendants. So what has it got to do with Chingkallam or their history ? This is the history and heritage of the Eezham Thamizh. Many of them also converted to Buddhism and then around the 12Th=13Th century reconverted back to Saivaism and converted these once Buddhist places of worship back to Hindu places of worship or they became ruins. This is their history and heritage and not Chingkalla history or heritage to come and falesely claim with fake concocted history. Thamizh built these places of worship and Thamizh converted these back to Hindu temples , when their religion changed or these places fell apart as there were no more Thamizh Buddhist in these areas, all reconverted to Hindu.

        Your rowdy Buddhist monks assaulted a Thamizh Hindu Iyer priest for daring to question and protest over the what was happening . This is an insult to all Thamizh people , Hindus/Saivites. The same thing happened in Kinniya in Trincomallee Chingkalla Buddhist slapped a Thamizh Iyer priest. How will you feel if we had assaulted one of your Buddhist monk rowdies? You not only trespassed on our temple and place of worship and forcibly installed a Buddha statue with the help of the Sri Lankan authorities , then defied the court order and again with the help of the Chingkalla police and armed forces, burned this cancer ridden rogue Buddhist monk’s body inside the premised of the Hindu Kovil , deliberately desecrating the temple premised and it sanctity , as you racists are drunk with power and think you can do anything and getaway as you have the backing of the Chingkalla establishment , armed forces and police. Yet no one as been punished for what they did . You are deliberately proving us, by belittling and demeaning what all Thamizh hold as sacred and dear to them . By your actions you are only stating we our lives , feelings language history , heritage culture and religion are nothing to you , we do not matter, as you are now the ruling race, thanks to nations like India , China, Pakistan and many in the west who helped you racist monsters.

            Pandi Kutti,
            ‘Koti Diaspora’ members ridicule Mahawamsa because Malabaris do not have such a document.
            As Jane Russel points out “The Ceylon Tamils had no written document on the lines of the Mahavamsa to authenticate their singular and separate historical authority in Sri Lanka, a fact which Ceylon Tamil communalists found very irksome”. (Russel, Jane: Communal Politics under the Donoughmore Constitution, Tisara Prakasakayo, Dehiwala, Sri Lanka, 1982. p.131)

            In addition to Mahawamsa, Native Sinhalayo have Chulawansa, Deepawamsa, Bodhiwamsa and several other books that provide the heritage of Sinhalayo.

            ‘Para’ Malabris brought to Sinhale by colonial parasites to do their donkey work do not have a history in Sinhale.

    This evil monk is already punished by lord Ganesha with a very aggressive pilikawa so that the guy could not have been salvaged. Burning his body anywhere is ok because his next stop will be in hell where he will continue to burn along with many others similar morons. Buddarakita, Somarama, Gnanasara, all will be there or already there. By burning near Ganesha temple, Ganesha will ensure that the evil s gone and ensure his entire remains despatched to hell. Now he will focus his attention on the goons who defied the divine order. I am afraid that already flooding started, crops destroyed, people displaced, now deceased will spread, new type of pilikawa may come into the country, famine, deaths, disease, poverty….all due to abusers of Buddha and those who disregard original Hindu gods. Katharagama where Dutte Gamini worshipped is already invaded by kappa gamma karayas, rapists and thief’s. End is near.

    Cancerous body is where cancer has infiltrated the body and in an incurable state. An aggressive type of cancer that often affect evil humans who disrespect humanity and religions and values. Such body is not infective but has to be destroyed by fire in order for it to go to hell where it will burn for ever. It is a warning to the fools who force religion on others for political reasons. Get this very clear. Ha…ha…insulting letters, first look at insulting, inhuman, barbaric and illegal acts carried out by yellow robed thugs.

    Violent behaviour is not new to Srilankan Buddhists. It was introduced by Buddha himself. According to Vamsatthapppakasini ” Buddha used his supernatural powers to harass the Yakkhas with eleven different types of afflictions. Torrential rains and hurricanes descended on them. They were pelted with showers of stones weapons burning embers hot ashes and mud. Cold and humid winds storms and darkness torment and terrify them. ” Buddha is said to have been ” victorious over enemies ” and in another story as ” jina or conqueror “. Pujavaliya goes further and says that ” this island belongs to Buddha himself, it is like a treasury filled with the three gems. Therefore the residence of wrong believers in this island will never be permanent just as the residence of yakkhas of old was not permanent ” . Here non Buddhists are referred to as wrong believers. If we read the stories of Duttu Gemunu and his mother Vihara Maha Devi we could see the extent of racism and militarism preached by Mahanama. It didn’t stop there. Successive rulers and monks , as custodians of Buddhism, have continued to uphold violence to maintain their racial religious superiority. What we are facing today is the result of actions attributed to Buddha that are taken as a precedent.

      As election is approaching, do you think its alright to collect good money from the clan as LTTE collected a large sum from Mahinda’s bagmen?

      Try get some good money from Gota and pass it on to CT and see if it is willing to publish unemotional good stories about Gota’s single handed victory over LTTE?

    GoSL has yet again been insensitive to the Mullaitheevu tradition of prohibiting funeral services in a place of worship. ‘Foremost place’ has been accorded to Buddhist Monks rather than to Buddhism.
    K.Anaga in the penultimate sentence says {“….. a religion is not necessary for man to exist but man is necessary for religion to exist,…..”}
    Should be modified to “The clergy is not necessary for religion to exist, a religion is not necessary…..”

    The problem with the Hamuduruwas in Srilanka is that they are not capable of doing anything meaningful after heavy meals. They have an IDLE MIND and therefore it becomes a Devil’s Work Shop. Thus they dance the devil by attacking all and sundry-
    including the dead and the living.

    It is a fact that in the North and the East Buddhist temples and statues suddenly appeared. They were then claimed as historical lands of Buddhist. Sinhalese talk so much if one law for everyone so applying the law if one party has lives and enjoyed the fruits of the land for more than 10 years they have possession of the land. There goes the temple truth

      K Anaga,

      It’s not the truth, facts, fainess or justice that matters in Sri Lanka. but crude and brutal force. Sinhalese governments can do almost anything and get away with it. Tamils are a minority and their population is on the decline. The protests and rebellian have not paid any dividend on the contrary ended in losses and Sinhalamisation of Tamil areas. You couldn’t reply to the facts that every protest has made minoroties lose more.

      You divide Tamil leaders as Hindu and Christian to weaken them even more. The protests must be confined to main problems and not reactive. For example a protests against Sinhala SRI on vehicles resulted in CTB sending worn out and dilapidated buses to N-E areas. Tamils of N and E are tired of fighting and losing more than three generations along with many other losses of loved ones, properties, land and ended up with military all round them.

      Corporation facilitated by grass roots Tamils by voting for the MY3 + Ranil government did pay off. Since 2015 there are no white van kidnapping, murders and torture, ensured freedom of speech, commeration of deaths, among others. Total success is curtailed by the victorious military and powerful extremists who, after defeating LTTE, gained popularity among the southern population. Real corporation and not the types happened during Thanthai Selva’s period to the extent that Sinhala mindset must cahnge that Tamils are a part of the island and not to divide it to carve off a large part of the shores to themselves. Their myth that Tamils want to join with Tamil Nadu and restart historical invasions must be given consideration.

    “The surrender of the Hindu Sampanthar and the Anglican Sumanthiran to the Buddhist Ranil has resulted in irreparable damage to the Tamils.”

    This is an emotive, thoughtless and stupid statement for K Anaga to make. What else would have happened if MP Sampanthar opposed every move Ranil made. Any difference? Tamils have been protesting to every discriminatory measures of the successive Sinhala-Buddhist governments and the latter kept on violating every reasonable rights of the minorities since the indepence. When Tamils protests the governments gradualy and steadily convert Tamil areas into Sinhalese. Can you name any protest that benifitted the protesting and demonstrating minorities, especially Tamils? The worst happened when LTTE lost the war and exposed the weakness of protests and rebellion.

    Look at what happened in the ineffective Northern Provincial Council. The NPC passed 417 resolutions most of which challenged and provked the majority community and the government at the centre. Had it confined itself within its limited powers and utised their time in serving its community people in general would thought of realising the benefit of devolution.

    Tamils must unite with the majority community and awake them to the reality of living in peace. Only friendly approach will convince them that Tamils are against division and committed to living in an undivided island.

      Saro !
      You appear to be a very sorrowful case. Tamils must unite at what cost?
      Do you mean to say that you give up all protests against the genocide, missing persons, colonisations, detention without trial and dance to their tune? Sampanthar and Sumanthiran have been co-operating with everything what Ranil wanted and what did they achieve? A spacious house for Sampanthar and a PC for Sumanthiran with additional STF security guards.
      There is nothing emotive in what I said. They are facts and facts are stubborn. GGP cooperated with UNP, Chelvanayakam with the assistance of Thiruchelvam co-operated with UNP. Kumarasooriyar Co-operated with SLFP. In fact, the first joint secretary
      of the SLFP was a Tamil by the Name ‘Saravanmutu Thangarajah’- son – in – Law of Sir Vaithilingam Duraisamy 1st Srilankan speaker of the State Council.(but he had to give up with Sinhal Only), Banada Chelva pact, Dudly Chelva pact, , ISGA with Prabaharan etc, etc. I can go on citing various other co-operations but people like you who are blind to understand the Sinhala politics cannot be put on the correct path. I can give you more but what purpose does it serve? Maybe I have to write in detail an article about the various co-operarations to convince you, but is it worth it.?
      You seem to be concerned only about Sampanthar and Sumanthiran?

      History shows that there are several instances where Tamil politicians approached the majority community and their politicians in a friendly manner. They joined hands to get prominent Sinhalese leaders freed from prisons; seek independence; form governments; dissolve govts; enter agreements / pacts; and many more. In the end what have tamils achieved ? Nothing. In fact they lost whatever they had little by little. In 1970 Federal Party asked Tamils not to vote to any party asking for the division of the country. In 1976 FPs position was changed. What made them to change ? In late 1970s Armed liberation struggle started when all peaceful friendly approaches failed and they had no other way to protect Tamils from physical attack . Subsequently Armed struggle too failed. Tamils are no where to go now. No path direction policy to follow. No one to lead. No one to trust. Surrounded by selfish money making political vultures. Majoritarianism is on the path of assimilation. They are determined to complete this project very soon. Wait and see.

        Peace Lover,
        I don’t disagree with many things you say. My point is that violence approach cause more damage to the weaker monority than the stronger majority. Every protest peaceful or violence Tamils are the losers. Does any one know where the protests and challenges will end up, the destination?

        No one wants Tamils to end up extinct like American Indians or Armenians. Sinhalese leaders always put themselves and their families before the country. So protests, UN reports, UNHRC resolutions and naming and shaming don’t seem to have any meaningful influence on their attitude. Tamils should not expedite nor help the governments “complete this project” sooner.

        We must learn something from Mahathma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and Barack Obama and change cause.

          I a man in a dilemma. You don’t want any peaceful or violent protests. If so how do ordinary people ask for their land, whereabouts of their disappeared family members, release of detainees in prisons for several years etc; Speeches in Parliament didn’t bring any relief. Appeals to President, PM OMP and human right organisations didn’t serve any purpose. So what do you expect the ordinary people to do. Please be specific and show us an appropriate path. I am clueless. How are we going to stop assimilation. What are we to learn from those leaders you have referred to ? i need to know in detail. Please elaborate.

            Peace Lover,

            Protests and demonstrations have become a way of life in the north, harly a day goes without some sort of them. None of the protests paid off. Political parties set the agenda of the affected people to gain political mileage. Protest is a democratic right of discontented masses. It can be informative and not confrontational.

            Give more time to the Tamil MPs of TNA not only because they were elected by the traumatised people but also their friendly approach to the government needs to get to the south. There are no easy solutions but friendly approach enables the majority community to empathise with the suffering minority.

              ” Give more time to the Tamil MPs of TNA……”

              I genuinely believed that having known the past history you will give me a worthwhile answer or a direction to solve the tamils’ problems. But you have not even made a slightest attempt to show me and others a new approach, or a blueprint, which disappointed me thoroughly. Previously, you have accepted that all our friendly approaches towards majority community for several years have been failed miserably, yet you still insist to continue the same method. If this was your only answer you had, I wouldn’t have wasted my time. The most hilarious part of your reply is asking to give more time to the Tamil MPs of TNA. Saro, are you really serious ? Can you tell us what have they achieved politically and what benefits the voters who elected them have gained economically during the last five years.? After the lapse of nearly five years Sumanthiran said recently that the govt has cheated them by not finalysing the new Constitution. Do you still trust the govt and TNA?

    This is damn crazy who ever these super heros may be. The 2500 years of heritage is still creating rifts which is not benifiting anything but hatred. When Sri Lanka got independence the rupee against the US dollar was about 4 rupees and today its 180 approx.
    If only the people had stood as one, right people had administrated, law and order enforced, public servants had done there proper work right people for the right job and the money used for the bloody 30 year war from both the rebels and state and utilized the proper way, Sri Lanka would have been a much greater nation than today.

    K.Anaka you must be damn stupid to claim “The surrender of the Hindu Sampanthar and the Anglican Sumanthiran to the Buddhist Ranil has resulted in irreparable damage to the Tamils.” Of all the Sinhalese leaders Ranil Wickremesinghe is only one who does not speak in terms of Sinhalese/Tamil. He has roundly condemned the cremation of the Buddhist Monk within the precincts of the Hindu Temple. He is of a different breed compared to the Rajapaksas.
    It is Ranil who has allocated Rs.25,000 million for the development of Northeast. It is he who is responsible for the reconstruction of Myladdi Fisheries Harbour at a cost of Rs.395 million. The first stage has been completed at a cost of Rs.150 million.
    The KKS construction is developed at a cost of USD 45.27 million (Rs.792 million). The work is in progress. Palaly Airport is developed as an International Airport at a cost of Rs.2250 million. India has given a grant of Rs.300 million.
    A General Hospital will be built in Kilinochchi costing Rs.4,474 million.
    Since Ranil voted to power in 2015, 60,000 houses have been built for the war-affected families. This year alone 15,000 houses will be built.
    Above all, Ranil Wickremesinghe is the only politician who wants to give maximum devolution to the Northeast within a united country.

    These Buddha’s powers were concocted stories borrowed from Hindu mythologies. There is no truth at all and no one had any such powers. Buddha was a n ordinary man, opposed Brahmanism in some way, stopped killing cattle only, course and effect are in this life, hell and heaven in this life and died of probably pork poisoning at 80. He never wanted anyone to worship him. But today in SL they are doing business and politics in his name and already ruined his name. Non Buddhist view innocent Buddha as a villain. But the crooks are the blind, misled, ignorant followers. Dutte Gamini s racism was simply concocted by our racist Sinhala brothers who do not know their real history and misled by inebriated Mahanama . At Dutte’s time there were no sinhalas and it was only nagas, yakkas who are all Dravidians. Dutte was a Tamil speaking, Murugan worshiping naga.
