Catholic Church Calls For Appointment Of Civilian Governors In North & East; Curtailing Security Forces Activities

The Catholic Church in Sri Lanka has called for the appointment of civilian governors for the provinces of the North and East  and Malcolm Rbelieves that although the war ended the terror activities of the LTTE , a satisfactory political solution to the issues facing the Tamil community in the North is yet to be found and a sense of simmering unease which continues to prevail needs to be addressed with a sense of urgency.

The Catholic Bishops Conference in a Pastoral Letter issued last week appealed to the Government to limit the activities of the security forces to the areas of internal or external security and related issues only. The Conference also called for the expediting and streamlining of the process of re-settlement of the internally displaced people of all races and religions in their original habitats.

Following is the full text of the Pastoral Letter

    Pastoral letter is the first draft of the script for the drama to be enacted during the visit by Pope Francis. During X’mas it will be God’s message to Sri Lanka from Vatican. For Gen. Chandrasiri to remain as Governor, he will have to become a Hindu or a Roman Catholic.

      Do Buddhist Mahanakes monks have any opinion on these issues affecting civilians in the country? Or those leading monks have issues with their literacy skills? No literacy skills to relate what they read and hear, so no opinion…..

    Also, Catholic Church should send a letter to TNA saying not to glorify tamil terrorists and stop spreading racism if they want any reconciliation.

    Already Northern PC has a civilian governor, so why the church want another civilian governor. May be what the church saying is that, church want a pimp or a similar civilian as a NPC governor, so that TNA could have a field day.

      We dont forget the treachery of the Catholic Church.

      Catholic priest participated in bank robberies.
      Catholic Priests were with the LTTE from the start to finish!
      Catholic Priests were holding the picture of criminal Prabharan and demonstrated against the government in Kilinochchi.

      Catholic Church is the loot keepers of LTTE.

      Now the Sinhala catholic morons play the same LTTE tunes. Military is needed in the North and east to handle the catholic Church backed LTTE terror!

      But the dream of making North and east as another East Timor never happen!

        Mokkan is not only Sinhalam he is a Bundu too. East will be made into East Timor and North will be made into North Timor. Mokkan education is very important.

      Power rests with the Sinhala Military, so Vigneswaran can’t do much. When you lot ditch your genocidal thinking then you can talk about Tamil animosity.

        Genocidal?
        What is that?
        Eelam propaganda only bark about these genocide stories but Tamils are still run to Colombo for a good living. The fun is the condominiums built by LTTE. Why did LTTE spend millions and built those condos?

        If a genocide is there, how can the Tamils go and settle in Colombo and suburbs?

        Pro LTTE diaspora dont think about peace because many of them made good fortunes during the war. Now they are out of the business and they want some bomb blasts and killings to start their dollar collections.

          ‘Genocidal? What is that?”

          Your logic that because there are still Tamils in Colombo negates the accusation of genocide is like saying that since Native Americans still exsist in America, they were not victims of genocide in the past by Whites.

      Major General Chandrasiri openly canvassed for UPFA candidates openly during the NPC elections thereby disqualified to be a Civil Servant. Only a civil Servant that too a civilian and not ex-army personnel can understand the civil administration. He was also disqualified by blocking foreign aid to war affected schools even before the NPC elections were held.

        Maj.Chandrasri is a political appointee and he has all the rights to canvass for his party.

        You are so funny and talk about disqualification.

        Further NPC returned more than 3000 million rupees to treasury. So, no need for foreign money there.

      Racism is institutionalised in Sri Lanka; the present architect is the MR Regime. The TNA have nothing to add to it. You first need to understand the ingrained racism within the Sinhala Buddhist mentality towards the minorities. Basically, if the majority were to act responsibly, the rest will follow suit!

    The Northern Provincial Council just beginning to work, started with a very bad example of asking the present Provincial Governor to be replaced. This decision to remove him was followed with another “foot in the mouth” talk by the MP Mr. Sumanthiran who said that the Provincial Governor knows only to engage in “Extra Judicial Killings” and he is not a “knowledgeable man in Constitutional” matters. Then there is a very visible and a great consistent attempt in garnishing the support of “Religious” organizations to remove him, as if that is the “PRIME OBSTACLE” to the smooth functioning of the Provincial Council. In fact the Chief Minister said it in few words when he presented the budget.Now the whole country is aware of what you are getting ready for.

    At the very outset we see that this Provincial Council is not “geared” to undertake the task of “governing” and “rebuilding” the North, but very “openly” and “painstakingly” following a path to bring in a “hidden agenda” of the diaspora. Well they must make a serious note that this country is not ready to see another “blood bath” at all and ready to carry on with it for another “Decade”. The people are fed up with this type of “ridiculing” of the county’s Unitary State and they are geared to avoid any such attempts to “re-instate” that “TERROR” in the country any more.

    So in the interest of all concerned, this Provincial Council must take a serious look at what is expected of it and what is needed to be delivered. If not don’t be surprised that the fate that fell on Vartharaja Perumal could also be “FORCED” on you “BY THE PEOPLE”. That “Force” is slowly but steadily building in the Country. and you cannot blame anyone else other than “YOURSELF”.

    So please contemplate on this saying:- ” THOSE WHO DO NOT KNOW OR FORGET THE HISTORY ARE DESTINED TO REPEAT THE HISTORY”.

      Catholic Church is the handler of LTTE. Sumanthiran is a member of the CSI(Church of South India) and the legal adviser to his church.

      Both churches happily support LTTE. Now the LTTE is no more, so the Catholic church intimidate simply because of the connections of their foreign masters to achieve the same goal of separation.

      Where are the Sinhala catholics who always maintain silence over the atrocities of their Tamil counterparts?

    The respected Catholic Church comes forward courageously to do what the
    religious leadership in the majority failed to do – stretch the hand of friendship to the Tamils to join in nation building.

    In a religious environment as malignant as ours the Catholic church should also expect irrational responses from Sinhala extremism for their enlightened move. One hopes the belligerent, drunken hordes of the BBS under the leadership of the adi-gaana Galabadda Gnanatissa Thero do not storm Bishop’s House down Borella for this unity-centric move.

    The President must pronto appoint a civilian Governor on his own – before the international community and the UN twists his arm. If the climate is not yet right for a Tamil nominee from the angle of the Buddhist Sinhala supremacists, Tamils will not stand in the way to the appointment of an able and educated Sinhala Governor of established reputation and competence.

    Why is the sex abuse Catholic Church make the same demands as the TNA?

    Government should do an independent investigation into sexual abuse in the church and temples. Then these people will shut up.

    Yellow robes and white robes cannot marry. So they abuse their own people.

      I have never seen a comic like you this Jimsofty.

      Government? what you mean by GOVT?
      We have a lunatic despot here with his entire uncultured unrducated family and no govt but a hopless regime.

      And you say ‘Government should do an independent investigation’. :0
      Independant investigation with this regime would be a miracle as long as the rogue family is around. For you this kekille is just fine but for the rest he is menace.
      Now you accpeted that there is sexual abuse in the Temples. ha ha ha many commenters said that to you number of times about the yellow robed goons. That ugly looking Satan, I mean Ghanasatan is one of them.
      My ribs are aching Leela Potter.

    Can’t accuse the Cardinal of abandonment or racism.

    This is the man who said to the world that the country desires an inevitable and a clinical military victory, though the priest in him may not agree.

    A PATRIOT TO HUMANITY, TO THE ISLAND, FEARLESS AND RIGHT, RESPECT !!

    I find it hard to believe most of the comments above are anything but bigotted. The Catholic Church backs both factions, but I believe the Rajapakse loving Cardinal has finally realized that he has been flogging a dead horse, and has agreed to the consensus opinion, that A former Commnander of the North is NOT the most suitable person to be the Governor of the NP at this juncture.

    However as the Govt. is clearly NOT intent on peacemaking as it is NOT in the electoral agenda, we must accept that and give a chance to an alternative that in fact can do the job.

    Unless of course the Majority of Sri Lankans prefer war.

    Malcolm Ranjith supported the president and advised US Assistant Scretary Blake not to sponsor UN HRC resolutions as the latter would solve the ethnic problem and accountability issues. Now that Gotabaya’s accomplices started knocking at his door by demolishing churches. The Muslim cabinet ministers also are panicking that Muslims are shouting at them as some Mosques are ordered not to sing prayers. Everyone wants to wait until they come and know at his doors.

    MP Mr. Sumanthiran who said that the Provincial Governor knows only to engage in “Extra Judicial Killings” and he is not a “knowledgeable man in Constitutional” matters.

    Sumanthiran unwittingly expose his tiger tail………….

    This Malcom a MERCENARY of the Roman Empire in Cassoack is silently attempting to expand the tentacles of the Holy Roman Empire to grow with power be it the Devil.
    That is the Roman Catholic Church…. killing, Paedeophiling, warring, Genocide, Upstaging political demographics of Countries & Leaders, Money Laundering, Investing in the Gun Industry…
    THIS IS WHAT THESE SO CALLED ROMAN MISSIONARIES IN CASSOCK INDULGE IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST. ACT LIKE MERCENARIES HAVING HIJACKED THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST AND HIS TEACHINGS AND AMMASING WEALTH THROUGH COLLECTIONS FROM FOLLOWERS.
    ENGAGING IN POLITICS IN THE GUISE OF THE WORD OF CHRIST IS THEIR PASTIME.
    JESUS CHRIST DID NOT HAVE CARDINALS, BISHOPS ECT., THIS IS ALL ROMAN POMP AND PAGENTARY.
    THESE ROMAN CATHOLIC CLERGY ARE WOLVES IN SHEEP CLOTHING.

    Islam replaced Christianity in SL 32 years ago as the third largest religion. In another 8 years it will be the second largest religion in SL.

    The curse that befell the Catholic church of losing popularity is because of these people.

    Carry on Tamil racists. You will reach your Nanthikadal.
