Champika Ranawaka Is Conning

By Shyamon Jayasinghe –

Readers, don’t miss a treat: Go to the following link and you will find a must-listen video of Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka (PCR) addressing a Paris crowd of Hela Urumaya followers:

Now this is not what I say but it is what PCR says to an adoring crowd who keeps applauding a string of falsehoods and baseless conjectures uttered by him. He appears as a messiah, come to deliver. He doesn’t deliver at the end but manages to provoke the motley crowd of credulous people. Put in a nutshell what PCR says is firstly that the Sinhala are a rare race of people born to a unique island that surpasses all the world’s countries and secondly this race is about to be wiped out by minorities that entered the island under the welcome protection of a benign host population. He particularly picks on the Muslims at conclusion.

Responsible Ministers of government should be wary to avoid making historical claims that can be easily checked for truth. On the other hand, PCR doesn’t bother hammering out one lie after another. First, he states that our island is the most ancient of all countries and that Sri Pada is more ancient than the Himalayas!  Lanka is older than India! PCR doesn’t bother about the evidence but the audience applauds. PCR forgets that although Sri Lanka is an island today it most probably was not so for long geological years. At least this is what geological scholarship states. Massive tectonic and land mass changes have taken place and major metamorphing of land blocs and oceans are known to have taken place all over the earth. In a research paper geologists CB Dissanayke and Chandrajith says the following: “In the final analysis, the comparison of mineral occurrences, mainly gems and graphite in Sri Lanka, South India and Madagascar in this study indicates that the fit with Madagascar is far closer than hitherto promulgated by other researchers who had juxtaposed Sri Lanka with South India.” The researchers point out evidence for a Madagascar, South India and Africa (Gondwana) linkage.

Second, PCR points out that the Sinhala language is the oldest language in the world next to the Hebrew language. Again, an assertion picked from the air. The fact is that the Sinhala language came to the island with the original migrants of India that already spoke an Indo-Aryan language. The early migrants came from Bengal, Magadha and Kalinga and the languages in these areas are variants of Indo-Aryan, not dissimilar to each other. Sinhala is an amalgam of all these already prevailing languages. Pali came to influence the language later. The original migrants also brought with them the Brahmi script. Even PCR’s gospel, the Mahawamassa, says that King Vijaya used to communicate with Kings in India. This should have been in a preexisting common language. According to Dr. C.E. Godakmubara, the Sinhala Grammar Sidathsangarawa was based on the Tamil Grammar Virasolium in the 11th A.D  So, there again goes PCR’s weird thesis.

It is a common racist strategy to begin by establishing that the chosen race is superior to all else. This gives a sense of false-pride to the audience. Most races and communities would like to think they are special. The Sinhala people do have a lot to be proud about-there is no doubt about that; but most nations and civilizations do have special things to be proud of. The ultra-conservative Japs believe that they derive from the Sun God. This is fair so long as such claims are harmless.

However,PCR does this at the beginning to prepare his audience for what follows: PCR cons his way at this next stage, too, and the Paris audience applauds. Tamils, he says, came to Lanka when the Mogul invasion of India took place. This would make out that the Tamils were here around the 12th or 13th centuries AD. Perhaps PCR didn’t realize that this is too recent a date. Professor KM De Silva, our contemporary historian, in his book, History of Sri Lanka, states that from archaeological investigations conducted at Pomparippu in the North West of the island in 1956 and 1957 one notices a culture bearing similarities to the South Indian Megalithic  culture. He states that this culture had arrived in around 500BC.  Aryan settlement and colonization, according to the Professor, preceded  the  Dravidian only by a few centuries.. KM states that Sri Lanka in the first few centuries after the Aryan settlement “was a multi-ethic society ( a concept that emhasizes and a spirit of live and let live) rather than a plural society in which tension between ethnic and other groups is a main feature).”

Professor KM makes another important point namely that ethnicity was not an important point of division in ancient Sri Lankan society. The wars fought by Gemunu and Elara were not Sinhala-Tamil wars as maliciously projected by Mahanama. Many, fighting on Gemunu’s side were Tamils who had embraced Buddhism. There were Tamils of the Buddhist faith, fighting on the side of Elara. One of the generals on Elara’s side was Mitta a Buddhist. Mitta’s sister’s son Nanda Mitta a Tamil (Buddhist), was one of the generals fighting in Gemunu’s army. Mahanama maliciously described the wars as Sinhala -Tamil wars.

PCR next takes on the Muslims by making another palpably false statement,namely  that the Muslims came to Sri Lanka when they were driven out by Portugal (around 12th century Ad). The evidence is different. The first mention of Arabs in Ceylon appears to be in the Mahavamsa  in an account of the reign of the King Pandukabhaya. It  is stated that this king set apart land for the `Yonas’ ( Arabian traders) on the side of the western gate of Anuradhapura. (Perera B.J. `Ceylon Historical Journal-Vol.1′). This may indicate an Arab presence in the island even before the coming of Islam, in 7th century.

Having gotten away from his captive Paris audience PCR next comes to his intended  thrust, namely to instill scare and fear among the Sinhalese  as a result of the activities of the Tamil and Muslim communities. This is the ultimate racist strategy. He gives a long account of the threat from the LTTE Diaspora. The threat from the Tamil Diaspora is real and PCR is right at last. But, then, that has been a recent development. PCR avoids our own contribution to the making of the separatist militant movement. Only if we recognize our own deficiency here that we can be prepared to get about reconciliation so that Tamils and Sinhalase could live in harmony as in the past that Professor KM De Silva refers to. There is no doubt that the Tamil Diaspora represents racism. On the other hand one cannot bring down racism by the kind of counter racism that CPR advocates both against Tamils and Muslims. Unfortunately this has been the dangerous flaw of extremist nationalism.

In a similar vein PCR states that these Muslims were able to settle down because of  ‘our compassionate Sinhala Buddhist people.’ PCR avers later that Muslims are now threatening Sinhala Buddhists.  PCR brings out statistics to point out how the Muslim population has grown and is growing. He ignores that the Sinhalese have also grown in numbers over the years. PCR’s implicit support for the anti- Muslim violence by militant Buddhists is evident when he defends the Grandpass Mosque attack.

I said at the beginning that Champika Ranawaka fails to deliver in the end. This is because all he does is to create fear among Sinhalese and create aversion. The hard fact is that the existence of the Tamil and Muslim communities is established and cannot be reversed even if we desire to commonsense would demand that these three ethnic groups live together and build up harmonious relationships settling their issues amicably.  Leaders like Champika Ranawaka should work toward such an end. There is no other way for the Sinhala and for Sri Lanka. Champika’s rhetoric only suggests that the Sinhala must push out or obliterate the other minority communities.  In the immediate post 1956 years we saw  racist-thinking rabble rousers try that and Sri Lankans have experienced what  all that process led to. Prey,  do you offer a better way of elimination, Champika?

    Shaymon Jayasinghe,

    In what language did Arahat Mahinda preach his famous sermon – which resulted in religious conversion of King Theva Nampiya Theeson a.k.a Devanampiyatissa – son of Mootha Sivan a.k.a Muttasiva, and his subjects,practically overnight,to the religion preached by The Buddha?

    Mahinda came from north of India – Nepal, which had Kapilawasthu, and the king and his subjects spoke tamil.

      The lie of this is distortion that the King spoke Tamil is obvious as there are no Tamil inscriptions or writings in any form from that period or after it till the 12th century AD.

    Ven. Kirama Wimalajothy Thero

    You can’t get away simply by resigning from your post.

    You have to face justice at the court of Law either in Sri Lanka or abroad for the crimes your organization committed and for the lives and property lost in Aluthgama due to your Sinhala Buddhist extrimist organization that you are the leader.

    Therefore Please get ready to face Trial at the court of law either in Sri Lanka or Abroad. You and your organization are criminals under cout of law.

    Remember what happened to your friend in London courts, now serving prison terms.

    It will be upon you and your organization pretty soon.
    Muslim Congress and the victims should file a case against you and your organization for the murders that you and your organization carried out and to face trial and judgment under International Human rights Law.

    You cannot run away from Murder.

    Please be aware.

    It is so refreshing to find,amidst all the racist and fascist scholars that are so rampant in the island’s media, and even in theses pages, enlightened one such as Shymon Jayasinghe! I hope he continues his work — though I am afraid he is fighting a losing cause.The forces of darkness represented by Ranawake and his ilk are too powerful and as Gramsci may have said, has a standing army and the police and the yellow peril on their side.

    This Patta Lee Champa is a Patta Pal Boru preaching Sinhla Bddhist Racist. His long term plan of ethnic clensing shows in his talk.

    It shows he clearly instigate communal violance among communities without seeking any reconciliation after the end of long war. Photos show how over 90,000 Tamil war widows suffer daily.
    Tamil people are more reformed, trustful and hard working people.
    This I tell with experience. Infact of using them to develop our country, these crazy racists chased them from Sri Lanka.

    Ever since these Buddhist racists got into power after Independence we had communal problems in our country. It’s continue upto today.

    When did thug king Vijaya came to Sri Lanka. Where did he come from. This liar say Sri Lanka is older than India. Can he prove it.

    The earliest photos available about Sri Lanka shows that while Sri Lankan men wearing a loin cloth around their waist and bare body, while women and girls also wear loin cloth with bare body. If so what sinhala culture they talk about.

    During last Western PC elections his vote base lost from 8 to 2 candidates. Without UPFA, PCR will be walking in streets looking for work. He was kicked out from minister of Power post by Pres.Rajapakse.
    May be this could be his new assignment is to spread communal hatered among communities.

    Finally I say Sri Lanka is at this position all due to these low minded, low mind set and low inferior complex animals.

    They don’t protest against Container lorry loads of ethenol, tons of Cocain and now Casinos coming to Sri Lanka which are more harmful to our community.

    It’s time to reconcile and not to create more dis harmony.

    These preachers are radical, born radicalists.
    We are the ones who have been oldest in that region… how come this bugger could insist.. that our ancestors were the indigenous of the island.
    He says our langagues is the oldest… our culture is the oldest. Our people were the best… and oldest.. why then world literiture says almsot nothing so called nation have invented … ? These are just to brainwash the nation.

      world archilogists have not even paid any attention on the new discoveries he was citing in his speech. This man is born fundamentalist. We all know regardless of the religion, race, there are this kind of people. But my question is why to listen to this man or the like.. if people are wise. Oour folks regardless of where they are.. they let others to manipulate them. The very same is made towards the masses of the villagers living across the country by the president telling them palatable side of the story in order to win them for their political survival. Now with pending them the failure regime to go for making every arramgents people living outiside the island to be taken part in lanken election – meaning giving them rights to vote for them as Postal voter, these coalition consituent parties make every effort to win the hearts and minds of the people also living out the country.

      Here is History of Ceylon according to DNA Analysis shows that
      Apart from native Veddah , all others are Paras from South and east India.

      Therefore, they are called para-Sinhala, para-Tamils and other paras.

    Look at the audience. It represents the naïve and gullible population that Sri Lanka has. The government has over the last eight years in power succeeded in taking the Sinhala population further backwards. TV programs don’t enlighten them anymore as in the past. Astrologers dominate and idiots like Mervyn and Wimal Weerawanse are the new stars appearing to educate our people. Clowns, fools, blakcguards and liars hold sway. The biggest liar is the man on the top who lies through his arse. Joining these evil forces are the old left like Vitharana,DEW etc-all self-indulgent liars

    Most Thamils don’t read the Sinhala newspapers, because they don’t know the language. My guess is that Sinhala newspapers must be more strident and spewing venom compared to English media. So we must thank Shyamon Jayasinghe for giving the gist of the speech delivered by PCR to his audience in Paris. I am surprised to hear that PCR laid claim that Sinhalese is one of the oldest language in the world. Most scholars agree that Sinhala language was given the present shape by Buddhist monks to give a separate identity to Buddhists who were non-Thamils. The foundation for the language is Elu spoken by the indigenous (Nagas and Yakshas) population. The supra structure consists of Thamil, Pali and Sanskrit. As stated by Shyamon the Sinhalese grammar is based on Veeracholiam, a Thamil grammar book written by a Thamil Buddhist in the 11th century AD. An interesting question has been raised by justice as to what language did Arahat Mahinda preach his famous sermon – which resulted in the religious conversion of King Theva Nampiya Theeson a.k.a Devanampiyatissa. The Mahavamsa is silent on this issue. This is because there was no Sinhala language at that point of time. Finally, I like to refute the claim “There is no doubt that the Tamil Diaspora represents racism.” Thamil Diaspora does not represent racism. They don’t run down the Sinhala people, their language and culture. They don’t covet their land. Unlike Sinhala – Buddhists who claim the entire island as theirs, they don’t claim any part of Ceylon barrying North and east as their land. They also don’t lay claim to any superiority over Sinhalese in terms of race, language and religion. This despite the fact many Sinhalese have mixed lineage.

    The first wave of Sinhala fundamentalism came, as the writer says, in the years after 1956. This is the second wave. Ranawake clearly argues for ethnic cleansing of Tamils, Muslims, and Christians. This is what that alcoholic Gnanasara is busy on. The ‘pure Buddhist’ pretender Champika Ranawaka ignores the massive drug business where the UPFA high- ups are in. If good Buddhists he and his bloody monks in parliament should be worried about that. The result of the second wave would be an implosion that we see taking place now in Iraq.

    Even living in a country like France, a cradle of modern civilization, freedom and emancipation, does not change the mentality of Sri Lankans. Gullibility is inbuilt into the Sri Lankan gene. How easily they are taken in by lies.

    Thank you Shyamon Jayasinghe, for bringing us upto date with the goings on of the Present day power moguls of Sri Lanka.

    Champaka’s lies are well documented. Unfortunately the Sri Lankan has time and again proven to be gullible to the nth degree. Even those Sri Lankans who have moved to salubrious cradles of civilization such as France are unable to seperate pernicious lies from facts. They fail to see that they are being taken for a ride that leads to further horrors being committed in Sri Lanka. People like PRC are bound to thrive in the political scene of Sri Lanka.

    How sad.

    TO THANGA AND OTHERS INTERESTED
    I thank the many readers who have registered their comments making valuable contributions to this discourse. I wish to take up a specific issue raised by Thanga and two others namely as to whether the LTTE and other Tamil separatist militants are in fact racist. I have asserted that they are racist but these gentlemen deny that.
    Language, and words don’t come to humans in neat and tight packages. One has to loosen up the elements of any particular term in order to get at issues like this. Example, the definition of ‘car’ will have to change if a flying vehicle similar to a car in all other respects is invented. To my understanding the term racist contains the following elements:
    1. An assumption that the categories referred to (here it is Tamil, Sinhala, and Muslim) are significantly or substantially different from the rest of the body politic
    2. The employment of pejorative stereotypes to describe ‘the Other.’ The underlying belief here is that one group is superior to the other.
    3. The advocacy by one group for special treatment from the rest of the population on the basis of their assumed difference
    4. The demand for such special rights militate against the interests of the other groups

    Now, it may be that the Tamil militants do not regard that they are superior to others. In the same way do other communities generally behave except for Champika’s self-delusion. Hence, element (2) is out as far as the general populations,including Tamils, are concerned. However, elements (1) ,(3) and (4) reside with the claims of the Tamil militants and LTTE Diaspora. In this sense the latter are racist.
    Re (1) I do not believe that Tamils, Sinhalese and Muslim-speaking people in Lanka are substantially different. The differences are superficial and relate to acquired socialisation. In terms of genetic science race is a myth. Re (4) I believe that if the Tamil community is to be given separate land from the little island that would jeopardize the living interests of the rest of the population. Let the whole island belong equally to all who inhabit the island of Sri Lanka. Are the Tamils denied access to the rest of the island? No. If element (4) is implemented that would be a kind of reverse racism against the majority community. Isn’t it?

      Sinhala, Tamil, and Muslim are Paras as per Native Veddah terminology, who came as invited guests to the Land of native Veddah, who lived for well over 30,000 on his land.

      1. The Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims ( mostly) are of south Indian ans some East Indian genetic stock. They are Not West or North Indian. This was confirmed by DNA analysis. That is it is generally hard to tell one from another if they wear the same dress.

      It is language and religion that separates them, not genetics.

      Bali indonesia that is 93% Hindu is peaceful

      Lanka, the Land of Native Veddah., with 75% Sinhala, and 70% Sinhala Buddhists is violent.

      Looks like Sinhala and Buddhist with Buddhist Monks is an explosive mixture.

      So, let us start Amarasiri’s poster campaign, about the Para origins of Sinhala, Tamils and Muslims.

    The ignorance of the Sinhalese about their own history is shocking. It is this ignorance that allows morons like PCR to go about spreading even more nonsense. The rot begins with the Mahavamsa and the champions of this book namely the modern Buddhist clergy. Even as late as the 1800s the King was a Tamil who spoke to his ministers in Tamil because he did not know Sinhalese. Obviously the educated nobility in the court of Sri Wickrema were bilingual. They must have been educated that way. Not only do we have a Tamil influence that goes way back into time we also have other religious influences. There was a civilization that existed before the advent of Vijaya. There was a Buddhist tradition that also existed before the Ashokan intervention and before Vijaya. The Ashokan intervention which eventually brought us the Mahavamsa is the main reason for the amnesia. The oldest city carbon dated to 16000BC was discovered by the Indian geological survey in the gulf of Cambay off the coast of Gujarat. Link given: http://www.grahamhancock.com/forum/BadrinaryanB1.ph
    This is the oldest city ever discovered in the world older than Mesapatomia, Harappa etc. In 18000BC at the height of the last ice age the sea level was 130meters lower than what it is today linking Sri Lanka to India with a massive land bridge. These are the facts you can learn them or ignore them and follow PCR’s alternate reality. The astonishing wonders of our history will only be open to those with an open mind willing to accept the truth.

      You are typing nonsense.

      There is no history other than what is written in Mahawamsa, which is a sacred text for the Sinhala/Buddhists. Don’t insult them. This time around Sinhala/Buddhists will forgive you for your complete ignorance or shall we say blasphemous outburst.

      Mahanama did not mention Cambay city therefore it couldn’t have existed.

      Mahanama did not mention about genetic affinity between Tamils and Sinhalese, therefore this is another heresy from western scientist who seem to be conspiring to undermine the unique past of the Sinhala/Buddhists.

    It is unfortunate that most Srilankans have no knowledge of basic science,history or geology other than the little that was taught in school.Even the premier Colombo schools did a very poor job.This is as a result of not having books, and the problem worsens when you are looking for Singhala translation.Champika reminds me of Hitler and Goebels and this was one reason S L Gunasekara left as the JHU was getting radicalised and bigoted.I have a question to any informed person who can answer this king Asoka is one who did many a inscriptions about his doings but there is no record of his son Mahinda or daughter Sangamitta leaving on a mission to Lanka was this just another falsehood by monk Mahanama? accepted by the gullible with no inquiry.

    CT readers will be interested to [Edited out]

    We are sad to reveal nevertheless, so far none of the perpetrators of these crimes have been arrested. As of now Gnanasara and his drunken goons are roaming free inciting hatred and unleasing violence. Although the law compels their arrest, ironically it is seven Muslim victims who are now in police custody.

    Out of the nine Muslims killed, two were shot to death by BBS goons in Dharga Town on the 15th. There is no investigation how these murderers obtained fire arms. There has been no magisterial enquiry.

    It is well known that Medamulana MaRa started the terrorist organizations BBS and Sihala Ravaya. He nurtured and fattened them with the Government’s Secret Security Fund. The Buddhist terrorists (oxymoron? Ha, ha!!) are now wreaking havoc.

    Prior to his departure for Bolivia, the Mara instructed his criminal to use Gnanasara to create pandemonium among the Muslim community. And while his brother was faithfully carrying out “orders” he babahukumly tweeted from Bolivia “everyone please, exercise restraint”.

    Upon returning to the country, the first thing that this “concerned” President did was tour the devasted Aluthgama and Beruwala to inspect and admire the handiwork of his loyal brother. They hugged and embraced each other just like in that salivating photo readers have seen so many times on these pages and puked. Gota says to Mara “Aiye, hereafter no Sinhala Buddhist will ever vote for anyone but for you”. Mara says “Sadhu, sadhu, father will be very proud”.

    Shyamon,

    Strictly as a psychological theory, I think some things might have contributed to the myths and lies that Sinhalese politicians and a sizable population of the people hold as true:

    1. During the colonial era, Sinhalese must have felt terribly inferior to the Westerners and those mixed race people among the Sinhalese who intermarried with Westerners. Though Tamils must have felt the same to some extent, the presence of a huge number of co-ethnics in nearby South India/ Tamil Nadu who looked like them and shared their culture must have given them a sense of security and comfort in their own skins.

    2. Going back to earlier history, when the population was very small, being uprooted from Northern India (if the Vijaya story that we all learned at school was true) and chased away to a strange land must have affected their psychological makeup. They must have made up myths to make themselves feel better, and the natural forces of evolution must have passed down that psyche to the present day people.

    What it shows is that Sinhalese people are the ones who show all the psychological hallmarks of being immigrants from another country in Sri Lanka, and not being comfortable with their “ordinary” lives, and thus inventing ridiculous myths. While Tamils may have their own myths and problems in their psychological makeup, it is my observation that the issue is far more pronounced among the Sinhalese people.

    CPR is a thick-skinned, shit-stirring, practising onanist who exploits the simply fact that there is still a large quota of gullible navel-gazing cuckoos in our midst who will fall for anything that resonates with their own prejudices.The audience in Paris must be a captive one, forced to be there, because I cannot believe that anybody would choose to listen to this shit given the delights of that city of light; why, even the whores in Place Pigalle will give better value for your time spent with them!

      Just because they live in Paris or the suburben menas nothinng. Sl was not colonised by French… many of these men and women put their feet in european soils in the same manner boat people reached to australian shores. Many of them are refugees perhaps execpet few in second generation. So their knoweldge is similar to that of the house maids keep sending to Middle east countries to satisfy arab men in all abusive forms.
      If I were president of the country, first thing I woudl do is to stop women sending to middle east country. Better to pave ways to make them ooccupied keeping them in the same country – most of them cant speak even good sinhala, no have they been trained to work in modern house holds. … just becasue of all these, they get beaten, tortured, even physically harm with irreparaible wounds…… all the curse shoudl come on the srilanken regime, because they focus on the issue since that is important for them as one of the number 1 foregin currency brining issue to the nation.

    If the Gota- supported BBS goes on like this we will have to import the Al’Qaida. If not for the Muslims in the Middle East Sri Lanka will be broke. Right now we are happy the women who go there come as Muslims because they get Muslim kids after living there and slaving. PCR is right the Muslim population will increase as long as you Sinhalese depend on the remittances to run your broke economy.
