Cult And Its Heretics

By Tisaranee Gunasekara

“The sleep of reason produces monsters.” ~ Goya (Title of the 43rd etching in the Los Caprichos series)

The tyranny of unreason does not stop at the borders of politics. It spreads its tentacles to every aspect of human life. In his first post-Trump media briefing, Dr. Anthony Fauci provided a telling summation of the existential costs of Trumpism. “The idea that you can get up here and talk about what you know, what the evidence what the science is,” the immunologist said, “…it is somewhat of a liberating feeling.”

It is a sentiment many a medical practitioner in Sri Lanka would understand.

Days after Donald Trump left the White House, hopefully forever, Sri Lanka’s Health Minister was diagnosed with Covid-19. Even in a cabinet of outstanding ineligibles, Pavithra Wanniarachchi stood out, a peerless yes-woman who seemed to promote disease rather than health. On the behest of her masters, she obfuscated the gravity of the pandemic, ignored scientific opinion, punished medical doctors for non-adherence to official untruths, bowed before generals and followed charlatans peddling supernatural nostrums. The pictures of her devoutly throwing a pot into a waterway or eagerly consuming the Kali concoction were emblematic of the regime’s anti-science, regimented, and inane response to the pandemic. 

Now that she too has contacted Covid-19 and Basil Rajapaksa has become a first contact, will the government abandon its reality-denying response to the pandemic? 

Perhaps not. Peddling myths forms the lifeblood of the Rajapaksa project. Take, for instance, the Humanitarian Operation with zero-civilian casualties myth; “…our troops went to the battlefield carrying a gun in one hand, the Human Rights Charter in the other, food for the innocent displaced on their shoulders and love for the children in their hearts,” Mahinda Rajapaksa claimed at 2011 victory commemoration. This preposterous lie was uttered with a straight face and received with equal solemnity. By that time, the Rajapaksa base had become habituated into mindlessly accepting whatever lies the Rajapaksas saw fit to dish out from moment to moment. 

“What does a perfect group of followers do?” asked Victor Klemperer in The Language of the Third Reich, and answered, “It doesn’t think and it doesn’t even feel anymore…it follows.” Creating a perfect group of followers was what Vellupillai Pirapaharan did with the Tamils, what the Rajapaksas did with the Sinhalese, what Zahran Hashim did with his Muslim brethren. Having mindless followers enabled them to enact massive crimes that were, in the final analysis, self-destructive as well. 

The LTTE, instead of winning over the Muslims, targeted the entire community, presenting a massive politico-military and intelligence asset to the Lankan state. The Rajapaksas switched on to the Muslims enemy in 2012-2013, despite the fact that the Muslims made no territorial or political demands that threatened Lankan or Sinhala interests. Zahran Hashim and his followers targeted Catholic churches in Sri Lanka in 2019, using as their justification the Crusades, a conflict that happened continents away and centuries ago.  

These deadly episodes should have served as warning to all Lankans about the dangers of unreason. Yet the opposite seemed to have happened. Vellupillai Pirapaharan enabled the Rajapaksas. The Rajapaksas enabled Zahran Hashim who in turn enabled the triumphant return of the Rajapaksas. What is the next stage of this orgy of extremism? What new beast is birthing in the belly of the existing one? Or will we too be able to emerge from this fetid darkness into some kind of light, to ‘witness a nation that isn’t broken but simply unfinished,’ as the first US youth poet laureate, the incredible Amanda Gorman, phrased in her Inauguration Poem? 

From life to Afterlife: Ruling Myths

The transformation of the LTTE into a political cult was symbolised in Vellupillai Pirapaharan’s metastasis from Thambi to Sarvadesh Thalevar (leader of all lands) and Surya Thevan (Sun God). Hours after his death was made public, Mahinda Rajapkasa, as the victor of that war, styled himself as the Maha Rajano (High King) and Derana dinu devindu (God who won the land).

Post-war Sri Lanka’s future was mapped by men and underwritten by stars. Mahinda Rajapaksa will win a third term, a fourth, perhaps even a fifth term, and be succeeded by a son or a brother. The Rajapaksas, said the royal astrologer, will rule for half a century. 

The prophesied fifty year reign came to an end in five years. Mahinda Rajapaksa was defeated at the presidential election. Mahinda Sulanga, launched with much fanfare, turned out to be a puff than the anticipated gale. The Rajapaksas lost the parliamentary election as well, and were reduced to languishing in a no man’s land, opposing the government, yet unwilling to officially leave the governing SLFP.

From the inception of the Mahinda Rajapaksa presidency, the family made a conscious effort to transform the SLFP from a Bandaranaike party into a Rajapaksa party by elevating DA Rajapaksa into co-founder status on par with SWRD Bandaranaike. It was not this distorted history but ideology which came to the Rajapaksa’s rescue, post-2015. Sinhala supremacism, symbolised by Sinhala Only, was deeply embedded in the collective psyche of the SLFP, making the Rajapaksas rather than the Bandaranaike offspring the true political heirs of 1956. Post-2015, the Rajapaksas failed to regain control over the SLFP, but when they formed the SLPP, they took an absolute majority of the SLFP’s base with them.

The Sangha (or a segment of it) was instrumental in the victory of 1956. The assassination of PM Bandaranaike by a monk dealt a heavy blow to this brand of overtly political Sinhala-Buddhism. Almost 40 years later, this abandoned banner would be picked up first by Gangodawila Soma Thero and, after his death, by the newly formed JHU. That banner became the main rallying cry of the newly formed SLPP. Its identity would not be just Sinhalese but Sinhala-Buddhist, and explicitly so. 

The SLPP succeeded in mobilising a Sangha brigade that cast even the work of SWRD Bandaranaike into shade. Not only did monks carry a large burden of the Rajapaksa election campaigns in 2019 and 2020. They also added an otherworldly dimension to the Rajapaksa project, cementing its cult status. In the run up to the 2020 parliamentary election, Medagoda Abayatissa thero was reported saying, “Gotabaya Rajapaksa needs a strong parliament to fulfil his task…. For the president to go his way, he must be given a parliamentary power without extremists and racists. If so, one can be happy on the death bed about contributing to that merit (pinkama)” (lanka C news | ආණ්ඩුවට 2/3 බලයක් දී මරණ මංචකයේදී ඒ පින අනුමෝදන් වෙන්න..) 

The patriot-traitor divide has always been a part of the Rajapaksa political discourse. The above statement added an openly religious dimension to this. Supporting Rajapaksas politico-electorally became redefined as a meritorious act in a religious sense. Though not stated explicitly, opposing the Rajapaksas was turned into an act of religious demerit (paukama). If one can make gains not just in this world, but also in the next one by supporting the Rajapaksas, the obverse too had to be true. If one opposes Rajapaksas, one will be punished not just in this world but even in the next world. In this way, working, speaking and voting against the Rajapaksas become not just treachery, but also heresy. As the advocates of the Inquisition argued, what harm in sentencing a heretic to the stake, since he/she is fated to burn in hell for an eternity?

The chief incumbent of the Mirisawetiya temple is quoted saying, “Mahinda is a religion. Mahinda is a philosophy. Mahinda is a culture and a morality this country needs. As such it is a separate religion-like philosophy. Therefore study that philosophy,” (Lanka news web – 14.8.2020). This is no exaggeration; Mahinda Rajapaksa is the heart, the centre, the galvanising force of the Rajapaksa cult. And before Gotabaya Rajapaksa won the presidency, there was a perfect division of labour within the Family; to borrow from the Mafia terminology, Mahinda was Godfather, Basil was Consigliere, and Gotabaya was Caporegime, Boss, Advisor and Enforcer, Heart, Brains and Brawn. 

19th Amendment caused these roles to scramble. Now Gotabaya is president which means officially he is placed above Mahinda, even though in real terms the whip hand would belong to the older brother. This would create some dissonance, especially among the various satellites. These saplings of disharmony are real, but they are not the forest. The Rajapaksas might have disagreements about how the cake that is Sri Lanka is divided. But on the vital necessity of not allowing the cake to slip into non-Rajapaksa hands, there would be no disagreement. This was the lesson a united family forced Dulles Alahapperuma and Kanchana Wijesekara to learn when the two seasoned politicos tried to set themselves above Nipuna Ramanayake, a greenhorn and a Rajapaksa nephew. By ensuring that young Ramanayake came first in the Matara preference count, the Rajapaksas proved that the SLPP and the base is theirs. 

The Power of Sacrilege

Had Mahinda Rajapaksa won the 2015 presidential election, by now, the enslaving of Lankan minds would be almost complete. 

Perhaps the most abiding legacy of the Sirisena-Wickremesinghe administration is not politico-electoral or institutional but psychological. For almost five years, Lankans knew freedom. They could mock their leaders in safety. Now the Rajapaksas have to put the genie of freedom back into the bottle. That is turning out to be a bit more difficult than changing constitutions or undermining institutions. 

The defeat of 2015 was also a dethroning. The president was defeated, but the king was deposed. For nearly five years, the royal family had to live as ordinary citizens. In those wilderness years, they needed their acolytes more than their acolytes needed them. That narrowed the gap between the Family and acolytes, creating a less unequal playing field, at least in the eyes of the acolytes. 

The moment they regained power, the Rajapaksas moved to reset this equation. Still 2020 was not 2014. In the ensuing years, even the lay and ordained acolytes of the Rajapaksas had become accustomed to the freedom to air their opinions, about anything, against anyone. Little wonder that Gotabaya Rajapaksa had his outburst about possessing a dual personality. That too gave rise not to a terrified silence but to amused titters.

The Rajapaksas seem to be dealing with this obedience crisis in multiple ways. One is the promoting of political neophytes with no base of their own, and thus owe everything to Rajapaksa patronage, over and above those old political types (such as the elevation of Sarath Weerasekara above Wimal Weerawansa). Another is appointing serving and retired military men to key civilian position. What better yes men than men in uniforms, especially when they have seen the cost of saying no or presuming too much in the fate of Sarath Fonseka.

Rajapaksas will claim individual victims; there will be other Tissanayagams, Lasanthas, Prageeth Ekneligodas and Shirani Bandaranayakes. But fear has not silenced witty comments or mocking laughter. Myth flourishes, as was evidenced by the hordes that flocked to buy the Kali concoction. But so does irreverence, not just towards the nostrum maker and his political and media backers, but also his divine recipe-giver. The mocking of Goddess Kali reached such heights that the head priest of the Munneswaram Kovil was moved to make a dire prediction claiming Goddess Kali will punish those who laugh at her. 

The laughter continues. The pillorying extend to the political monks too, a healthy indication of future possibilities, if only the opposition is willing to realise them.

Concluding his research on the effect of Tumpism on race relations, political scientist Daniel J Hopkins argued that “Trump’s rhetoric and the condemnation it received may have made egalitarian race-related norms more salient” (The Rise of Trump, the Fall of Prejudice). Trumpism did discredit white supremacism and politics of white grievance. But it was the result of the Democratic Party’s refusal to buy into the argument that to win in 2020 they had to go slow on issues of racial justice and pander to white middle and working classes. Instead of pandering to white insecurities, the Democratic Party reached out to white voters of the Midwest and even traditional red states by focusing on socio-economic issues. 

Sri Lankan opposition seems to be doing the opposite. The Sinhala voting voter must be won over, not at the cost of Tamils and Muslims, not by pandering to soft or covert racism but by addressing their very real economic interests. The ongoing attempt to curry favour with the political monks who perverted the teachings of the Buddha to put the Rajapaksas in power is not just egregious but also useless. The Rajapaksa cultists (lay or ordained) will never shift their allegiance, the same way the American evangelicals and conservative Catholics continue to back Donald Trump. The Rajapaksas cannot be defeated by building temples, but by using public disenchantment with political Buddhism (which, like all political religions, has been a canker in the body national) to create a definitive break between religion (all religions) and politics in Sri Lanka.

Myths cannot be defeated not with other myths, but with the harsh light of reality.

    It is sad to realize the opposition is worse than the Govt in realizing the truthful power of a United Srilanka.
    They think they can be more racial and win back the power.

      Thisaranee, the US citizen Rajapaksa brothers are transfering the wealth of the nation to foreign hands – particularly lands and transport systems – while everyone talks about race politics beating a dead horse..
      Who owns and operates the ISIS which staged the Easter Sunday attacks to destroy the religious co-existence and Lanka’s economy after which the rupee crashed again? Have you read the book: The ISIS is US: The Shocking Truth behind the army of Terror” by Marsden et al? Have you heard of HYBRID WAR, of which Weaponizing ethnic and religious differences is part of a strategy to destabilize, divide and colonize small countries?
      Sri Lanka-US Diaspora has been weaponized just like in India where Kamla Harris now rules Saffron Hinduthwa Modi! US Deep State and its Indian DIaspora write policy in South Asia which is being colonized and asset stripped now also because of ignorance and failure of analysts like you..

          Dear SM,,
          They compare us today with far poor Madagascar not even with our fellow south asians. Can u imagine?
          .
          All these were not overlooked prior to last PE, nevertheless the people in our country paved the way Rajapakshes to return.
          .
          My guess was Nandasena would nt fit for a politician but ” as hang man,” if Gallow was reimplemented…
          .
          He speaks today to the gallery using his condescending tones. I couldn’t stop laughing looking at the manner how he answered the poor villagers ‘ questions. We perfectly know the govt has been struggling to survive not having funds so how can fulfill the dreams of the villagers? These are just media displays misleading the easy targets.
          .
          Has anybody of u CT readers ever seen Nandasena taking part in a press conference facing and exchanging his thoughts as any previous leaders done so?.
          .
          So why on earth jokers call him ‘Sir” ? As for me I dont have comparisons, if I would do so it would definitely an insult to ” Mercy Cows”
          .

              Beg to differ Mr SJ. I dont have such a negative attitude, nor to an ant. But I know good enough to compare the statistics of afro countries. I would not compare it with that of Cameroon, Nigeria, Ethiopia (today) or the like but with far poor countries. You may make your own recherche and come back tome.

              What is wrong with Madagascar ?
              Last week’s BBC report contained the following about both countries.

              Sri Lanka isn’t the only place where people in positions of power have promoted unproven treatments for Covid. It is Public secret the manner incumbent SPEAKER of the parliament and Pawithra W as minister of health ignored the gravity of the current pandemic situation… …. this would not have come that far, if the minister was well educated in the human biology.

              The similar behaviours were reported also from Madagasies.

              In fact, last year, Madagascar’s President Andry Rajoelina was criticised for promoting a herbal concoction that he claimed could prevent the virus. He was pictured distributing the tonic to poor communities in the capital.

              Apart from that, srilanka s social indicators are comparably better than that of Madagasies.

              Please see more about Madagascar here below. I love flora and fauna in Africa from my childhood on.

                ….”Comparisons are as relevant to a context.”….
                Yes generalisations on a very specific incident or a very few, are not representative of the whole.
                However bad we may be, it is unfair to compare us based on one incident – yes, we are certainly above Madagascar in very many aspects.
                True politicians played politics with the paniya to divert attention from their failures in other areas, but Trump’s concerted effort to subvert pales in comparison.
                So would you judge USA, a superpower on these few recent incidents there, based on newspapers which like to dramatise to attract readers, and seize any opportunity.

                It is not just this comment.
                You have remarked unfavourably about several African countries and leaders.
                Look at this:
                “World is watching… since Rajaakshes are back to power, they behave like tribal leaders in some countries in Africa.”
                *
                Are their tribal rivalries there any worse than our caste & race based tribal rivalries?
                *
                Sadly the average Asian had a negative view of Africa, almost like that of those in Europe decades ago.
                *
                I am not interested in comparisons unless there is a clear purpose; and I do not demand an explanation from you.
                Do some serious soul searching.

                  SJ,
                  Sure, I added several times comparing them with MR et al and their politics again and again. See how Rajapakshes addressed the audience shortly before the election was held. Ultra blatant lies were filled in his prevarications. They dont care the little about people’s issues. As for me, those abusive leaders in tribal africa and MR politics are no different. That is my opinion having studied their nature over the last 20 years or more. The very same manner, MR et al mislead the vulnerable without any shame. This I eventually discuss with my colleagues from Cameroon, Ghana and several other states in Africa.

                  Besides, as one who is very interested in politics in Africa (not only SA but also many other countries out of 54 states in that continent) from my student days on, I dont wait to update me by contacting them. So I clearly know that few of them have good leaders but most of others remain tribal. And african colleagues themselves criticise them being caught by tribabl poltiicians and that is the main reaon why those countries cant raise their head yet today.

                    What are we in South Asia? Caste and religion play a big role in every state.
                    We talk about ‘ethnicity’. How does ethnic politics differ from ‘tribal’ politics?
                    DO we ever hear anything said about the tribalism in Europe and US?
                    Has there been anything more wicked than the Southern White tribalism that once again raised its head viciously in the US.

                      SJ,
                      I am afraid, we may be exchanging at cross purposes.

                      Can you come with few examples about north ameican tribalism?
                      Such tribes are living in Latin Ameica but not heard from America.

                      Europe, tribes or the are only found in Rumania/Bulgaria and few other former communist countries.

                      What I mean by tribalism in Africa is totally different from the civlized behaviours of rest of the Africa/entire world. Like for example
                      7 tribes in Kenya:
                      Kikuyu. Of all the tribes in Kenya, Kikuyu is the most populous one, having its own set of cultures and traditions. …
                      Luhya. The Luhyas are the second largest among the tribes in Kenya that form 14% of the Kenyan population. …
                      Kisii. …
                      Mijikenda. …
                      Maasai. …
                      Luo. …
                      Kalejin.
                      :
                      Btw how can we compare AFRO-ASIAN TRIBALISM with that of Ameicans’ or europeans’ supremacism ? Is it right to compare tribalism of aborignes folks in Downunder with that of white australians’ supremacism ?

                      By ‘tribalism’ I meant clannish attitudes that communities display. I said:

                      “What are we in South Asia? Caste and religion play a big role in every state.
                      We talk about ‘ethnicity’. How does ethnic politics differ from ‘tribal’ politics?”
                      That should have made things clear.
                      *
                      White racism too betrays tribal attitudes.
                      The term “the White tribe” has been used by several authors in the context of racist and parochial attitudes that prevail in Europe, the Americas and Australia.

                    We are all tribal, though some cover it up better than others. There are WASPS and Catholics in USA, in addition to the MIC and others. Even Communists come in various colours, like Muslims. At least the African tribes are easy to spot.

                      Communists are not born into a faith or identity; and could at worst be a club like other political groups including all manner of conservatives, socialists and liberals.
                      There is White tribalism cutting across European and American nationalist identities.
                      It is also noticeable in Mexico and some South American states. But rarely talked about these days.
                      I wonder if you read “How to Tango” by George Mikes (a Hungarian emigre) written in the 60s, much after his well known satire “How to be An Alien” (1946). Mikes talks of racism in Brazil and somewhere he talks of how a Black man became White after he won a lottery and How a White man became Black after he lost all his wealth. So tribal identity is also a matter of one’s bank balance. (You may remember that Japanese were made ‘honorary Whites’ in old Apartheid South Africa while Chinese were among the coloured.)

        “tribal leaders in some countries in Africa. However, today s Ethiopians are overtaking us the srilankens today.”

        And Rwanda too.

        Does that mean tribalism works?

          Gothami,

          Please dont misinterpret it. What i have added above is

          .
          ” they behave like tribal leaders in some countries in Africa”

          BBC compares us with Madagascar.
          :
          Ethiopians overtake us is long clear to the Europeans. EU countries invest more in Ethiopians than in SL.
          .
          Ethiopians of the day, seem to have MUCH in common with Medamulana Meeharakas.
          :
          Our medamulan meeharakas can only have a temporary fun, by addressing a RURAL kali amma controlled villagers..

            But still those African countries are tribal and they have done better SL.

            So tribalism is not the problem.

              .
              Then tell us what is the problem ? Where does it lie ? Why do srilankens march back ? Dont you guys realize it our achievements as a nation prior 80ties lot more remarkable compared to that of like minded nations, specially for the country/nation than all together since then.
              .
              Triablism – is nothing else but not focusing on the facts.
              :
              This you noticed very well at the time, PAWITHRA became APAWITHRA (polluted) in her action throwing a MUTTIYA (a clay pot filled with Pirith Pan chanted by a Rajapakshe PINGONA native doctor) in to a river branch. Alone the kind of actions could promote actions against keeping the entvoironment cleaner. Nevertheless, so called minister of health was to do so, being caught by Rajapakshism which is far from realities as the youth would repsect it today.

              Those south east asian countries do believe in myths not to the manner Balians and Srilankens would do. That is why even VIETNAMESE are raising their head after long held wars. People should be able to focus on the facts about anything…. those south east asian countries too have their own cultures meaning not that they dont respect tribalism, but they dont let their political systems be guided by tribal leaders.
              :
              We should also add our OPTIONs how srilankens should behave in order to get rid of TRIBAL mentality.

                LM, Please don’t promote your “apavithra muttiya” to return and destroy the rest of the health ministry, together with her chief advisor Padeniya destroying all the doctors who have proved themselves with MBBS. A/L results all over the world are entry requirements for medical colleges. Medical councils work with MBBS, but our health service wants A/L and may extend to O/L and Grade 5 too. This destroys competition from other’s children practicing as citizens. Unaware that universal and karmic justice will overtake their own children too. Health and GMOA gimmick.

                  are u mad, why should I promote them ?
                  As for me, PW is not at all appropriate to be a minister. I dont insult fish mongering women, but PW could be a match to fish market.
                  :
                  I really dont know why rest of MBBS holders stay as if they are fed with KIRIMATI all along, leaving b****s sons like Paddeniya to continue whatever he thinks is right ? I know it from my former mates that late became medical professionals in SL, behave no different. They just attack me i may represent not SRILANKEN average mentality.
                  If you live in SL, you may know that srilanken CULTURE is made in order crime friendly ones to be protected. Be them Lay or buddhist monks is the same. That REAL heroic POLITICIAN like Ranjan Ramanayake is jailed for 4 years, while high criminals incl. Rajapkashes that evidently killed that MUSLIM boy is scot free. Meaning srilanken JUDJES and LAWYERS are highly biased. you dont need to have studied rocket science to get this. Even small kids would unequivocally accept, srilanken courts are highly biased…. only commoners would be jailed and be imprisoned for even small cases.

              Dont you know that those countries are far developed than CURRENT day srilanka ? In SRILANKA – only tribal LEADER Rajaakshes became wealthier … curse should go to PUNNAKU eating majority of the country. Yet today they dont consider anything serious…. their indifference nature was abused by Medamulana rascals.

            Hi

            BBC may be referring to the “unevolved” status of Sri Lankans perhaps? Island mentality??…..who could blame the BBC…just an observation of the killing fields since 1948 -2009 is more than enough data to support the notion etc??

            Madagascar has unique species/evolutionary nature too due to isolation & lack of human interference etc.

            Just as the rest of Indian continent we have the ability to smell money and all else stops there??

      Surely, Xi Jing Ping can only be better than racist, tribal, stupid and uneducated leaders SL had since 1948.

      Or do you still prefer Sinhala Only leaders to rule SL?

      China, Saudi and India will divide the island among them. Surely India will not trust pro-Chinese Sinhalese in Tamil Elam and China will not trust pro-Indian Tamils in Sinhala Only Elam.

      For all this to happen, the SL economy must crash.

        Funny thing is these ‘Para’ people who came from Hindusthan and settled down in Sinhale (now Sri Lanka) keep on condemning Sinhala leaders and Sinhalayo but not a single person want to return to their ancestral homeland.
        Modi has invited Indians scattered all over the world to return to India and work to make India ‘GREAT’ (like USA). So why not return and let Sinhalayo and Vedda Eththo who are the Native people in Sinhale live in peace.

          Good point, I also thought about it.
          I also wondered as to why those descendants of kallathonie converts who now call themselves as Sinhala/Buddhists have not made any attempt to get back to their ancestral homeland in Thamilaham.

          If you lot returned back to your homeland in South India Hindians would not have to send plan/ship loads of Vaccine (free of charge) to this island.

          By the way What is Channa Jeyasumana doing to produce COVID 19 vaccine, other than talking through his a***?

          Anti Hindian dumb asses who oppose every aspect of Indo/Lankan relation would be the first one to get Hindian vaccines for themselves and their families.

          Dear EE

          Is my point the so called Sri Lankan Tamil Refugees…for the past 40 years numbering in 200000+++ now with new generations born in India too have not been given Indian PR/Citizenship/Passport etc.

          What you say to that??? need solution/suggestion/recommendation etc.

          One more point India realise it is in her interest that she looks after all those preserved by the FP (to prove the FP/TULF love for Indians we have sacrificed the entire Sri Lankan Tamil children for a war for the past 40 years approved by the TNA) in the upcountry estate Tamils to remain faithful to India as this give access to India and her interest around the world?? is the same in Singapore and Malaysia etc.

            Except in Malaysia and Singapore Ceylon Tamils kept their distance from the Indian Tamils…I am ok Jack approach from the colonial inheritance. What was started in Tamil Nadu baby brigade training camps the Indian army came and cleaned up the business and setup a post (Jaffna Embassy) as a victory marking and had the GOSL take the rest of shit for their interest too..hence the UN who withdrew the space for the final push now playing with us all as and when with the UNCHER reports/war crimes etc.

              In reality LTTE and GOSL have more in common that the rest that is patriotism/principle and is a shame LTTE did not listen to Hon MR before the 2009 event?? should this have worked and all joined hands we would have remained as a Nation and stood tall for ourselves against all the bullies.

              Now the forever our GOSL will be shafted by the TNA a foreign force planted/embedded in the system already since 1948…just had different faces at different times but the core is very Sicilian.

                Even the Hon CVW was used for its scapegoating in the NPC the FP/TULF/TNA had no interest in Tamil welfare is a known fact even before the war who knows Jaffna very well.

                The current GOSL may very well be the one who really care about the Tamils….but the message to the masses will be blocked through any means…to know this just watch the UN behaviour towards Sri Lanka.

                GOSL knows this and need to play this long game of capturing the minds..the odds have now changed with the Chinese needs in the world.

              Ceylon Tamils keeping their distance was for geographical reasons as well.
              The Tamil nationalist leadership, without exception from Sir PR downwards (perhaps Sir PA was different) to the ACTC, FP etc., was Jaffna-centred.
              I do not make exception of any– but for the Tamil Left that kept raising their issues.
              *
              Do the Tamils of Tamilnadu care for Indian Tamils in Malaysia who face far more discrimination than ‘Ceylon Tamils’ a fraction as much as for the Sri Lankan Tamils since 1983?
              *
              Does not your own attitude constantly display a bit of the “I am ok Jack approach” that you denounce?

    Tisaranee goes off at a tangent with her cult theory.

    The phenomenon that is propagating in Sri Lanka since 1948 is the advancement of
    Sinhalese-Buddhist fascism. We have now reached the climax.

    Buddhist Bhikkus wanted Gotabaya to be Hitler before his election as president.
    Now that he is in power he is acting like one.

    “The Rajapaksas might have disagreements about how the cake that is Sri Lanka is divided”
    .
    That is (was) the crux of the matter.
    .
    When the discourse on the plan to devide the cake in line with Wickramasinge-Sampanthan agreement was going full steam ahead Sinhalese thought how it will be devided among Rajapaksas is less important. They brought the rejected Rajapaksas back in style.

      Soma,

      Things will look clearer after the SL economy crashes in 2021. China, India and Saudi (the three Asian superpowers) will divide the island into 3 mono ethnic nations which is long due.

      Over 140,000 lives were lost needlessly to keep it as one nation. Remember what happened to Sudan? All superpowers agreed that Sudan must be divided along ethnic/religious lines. It’s SL’s turn now.

      Thank you Soma for supporting Rajapaksas and making it a reality.

      But don’t worry, Rajapaksas will win all elections always in Sinhala Only Elam. At a minimum 58% of Sinhalese have always voted for Rajapaksas.

    Tisaranee dear, Faucci is and had been in charge of the US Deepstate’s bio-terrorism and ‘gain of function’, dual use, virus and vaccine research to manufacture attacks on human health and Food SECURITY for a long time.

    Wake up, and check the US patents for Sars Covronavirus and the US invented Fall Army Worm. Like the Bird Flu virus that killed thousands of Birds in India and Sri Lanka recently these were a manufactured in US labs like in Fort Dietrch and also subcontracted to China’s Wuhan Lab.
    The US has morphed into the biggest Rogue State in the world as the Empire crashes and Asia led by China rises. Sri Lanka is caught in the cross hairs of big power rivalry and of course the corrupt regime is also split down the middle and played by external forces.
    In India Saffon Hinduthva Modi is a puppet of the Deepstate, and played by the weaponized Indian Diaspora that now sets India’s national policy including the anti-Farmer, pro-corporate Farm laws that were passed when the Covid-19 hoax was ongoing in India, but this plan also backfired.

    Pawithra Wanniarachchi (so called cabinet minister for health of current govt), incumbent speaker of the parliament (another DIMWIT to the eyes of people with some sanity- his shameless performance is reaching its margins today), that fake Prof. Title holder Jayasumana (an another Rajapkashe wandibattaya for his academic achievements) and many others in that criminal outfit SLPP coldbloodly misguided srilanken population. This is very similar to how Sorbone educated Chief incumbent buddhist monk from Kelaniya Rajamaha viharaya by his public statements on that „ fake relics to have carried by a water snake came up from Kelaniya river shortly before Nandasena’s election in November 2019“ misled millions of buddhist worshippers to that temple and also the manner Valampuri man who (another fake Prof) deceived Rajapakshe Chintanaya followers for a period of 8 years. Srilanken police would do no investigations on these men, even if these men are crystal clearly proven to be high criminals by their tricks.

    There is no honesty and whole-heartedness towards the suffering oft he masses, ignoring the manner over 40% of the nation is squeezed by COVID related unexpected problems, unhearted, crime friendly Rajapkashes would continue fishing in muddy waters, akin to monsters that would amuse playing with the prey before being eaten them out.

      Thanks to Sirisena-RANIL govt, people were not forced to follow MYTHS during Good governance 4.5 years. Whoever whatever being said and done against GG rule, even that golden TV weekly program YATHARUPA was telecasted by SLRC opened the eyes oft he masses, until srilanken MYTHS-FOLLOWERS stood against the program vehimently. As good oberserver who lives out of the country for long, I thought this would have been common only to rural unedcuated portions of the country, until I myself heard even local medical specialists are too caught by Dammika Paniya, which was introduced by an uneducated, mad person from Kegalle. And the visiting medical specialists were physically assaulted by the very same DHAMMIKA pani maker during the visit, just because one of them (a dentist) was found to be against Kali-amma stories of Pani maker. This man was proved to have reacted like „ GANAN KARAYA“ …. May be he thought Rajapkashes would want him to react so.

      Myths can only be defeated by improving the awareness of the people and srilanken so called buddhist monks. We know how medival times acted against on new inventions. The numbers of Very same leading buddhist monks that sang the songs collecting sympathisers to Rajapakshe-rule, today, are behaving today as if they are sitting on their heads.

I hope the “23 Trade Union Confederation” now fighting the “Battle” of the “East Terminal” of the Colombo Port would realize this “Performance” of that “Denga Denga Permuna” and take suitable action to keep them at “Arms Length”.

These men in politics are just low lives no matter they wear few titles in MEDICINE, LAW and other fields. Gone were the days these professios earned greater respect.

          Please open your eyes, even this CS is not people’s friendly JOURNO… he just behaves like DEPATHTHA KAPENA PIHIYA….. these men are like parasites to my eyes.
          :
          I dont live in SL. Nor would I ever want to live in SL so long Rajapaksehs the most abusive poltiicians would be the leaders. To tell you I dont know anyone with some knowledge would ever go after ” SILLY FAIRY TALES BASED ON KALI AMMA”. As we know 5-7% EU countries believe in superstion while it is 95% in south asia. Paddeniya or the like men would have been MEDICAL specialists in EUrope, he would lose his APPROBATION within few hours, since people would not care whatever or however he or she would have been good his education, so long the performance are clearly biased, he or she has no right to continue.

            Not just the leaders, predominant portions of the society would not grasp it yet today. They dont use internet connection for improvment of their awarness, but just behave like a herd of buffaloes go after their fuhrer. Their thinking patterns should be subjected to a paradigm shift under the guidance of experts in society rebuilding. That is achievable if MEDIA would take the side of the PEOPLE.. not the politicians. Today it is the other way around….. we know how HEARSAYS become headline news in favour of Rajapakshes and their cirminal men. As for me, srilanken situation is no different to that KUNU KANDA IN wanathamulla. Symbiosis drags that from day to another. Winners are the POLITICIANS of RAJAPAKSHE NATURE.

            I thought things would exponentially improve with the long held brutal war is no longer there. But as of today, the unexpected has become the reality instead. Myths and like minded businesses being catalized by CROOK politicians have been misleading the vulnerable for their own political survival. There was a weekly program telecasted by SLRC from 2015-2017, by name ” Yatharupa” that I thought could achieve a lot improving the general knowledge of the commoners. Unfortunatley, poltiicians, fradulent astrologists, parmists and witchery men protested against it and it was suspended by the production.

    When the lack of education, politicization of a pandemic, ignorance of basic facts, disregard for Medical experts, World Health experts, and the Sciences, appointing incompetent, unqualified, and inexperienced cronies into vital positions, can compound into a massive crisis of unprecedented proportions.
    It happened in the US under Trump, which has resulting in (soon to be) HALF A MILLION AMERICANS DEAD, and 25 million infected. Unacceptable for the world’s greatest superpower, with wealth unlimited, resources, and top Scientists.
    Sri Lanka seems incapable of learning from the mistakes of other nations. We have leading this effort to control this deadly pandemic, a superstitious unqualified woman, who thinks pouring water into a river, or drinking the Kali concoction, will miraculously halt the pandemic from spreading. If only our people were capable of questioning the fact that had this been the miracle cure, wouldn’t the WHO, and Western nations, be knocking on our doors offering millions of dollars for Sri Lanka’s miracle portions. It would rescue us from our economic ills. India is manufacturing vaccines and Sri Lanka’s top medical official is dealing with mumbo-jumbo. Nice.
    Nandasena’s experts in pandemics are making us look like a banana republic, where a medical crisis is solved by magic portions, charmed waters, and muting the experts.

      Contd.
      It is unfortunate that like Trump, the Rajapaksa’s have chosen to go down the wrong path, in an effort to remain in power, at the expense of their citizens, and the loss of lives.
      We have expert Doctors and Scientists in Sri Lanka, why aren’t the Rajapaksa’s using their expertise, to combat this pandemic? Nandasena should stop interfering in our Lawyers, and our Doctors, and leave the Professionals alone, Most importantly appoint QUALIFIED and EXPERIENCED professionals, whatever their political leanings are, to save this country.

        “When the lack of education, politicization of a pandemic, ignorance of basic facts, disregard for Medical experts, World Health experts, and the Sciences, appointing incompetent, unqualified, and inexperienced cronies into vital positions, can compound into a massive crisis of unprecedented proportions.”

        Everything you say apply to your ancestral homeland.
        India
        Number of cases: 10,668,674
        Number of deaths: 153,508

        Sri Lanka
        Number of cases: 58,430
        Number of deaths: 283

        Sri Lanka is facing a problem in containing the pandemic because there are some ‘Modayas’ who live in Stone Age think someone ‘UPSTAIRS’ will cure and ignore guidelines from the Ministry of Health.

GMOA cant dominate and deceive a true scientist who has integrity, but today all say yes to anything to save their necks. TU pressure too works at the medical council level, where TU demands A/L, O/L etc, which is unheard of any where in the world in any medical council with regard to acceptance of an MBBS for clinical practice. A/L results are for the purpose of entering a university, according to the marks obtained and not a hidden unchallengeable Z score gimmick. Hello GLP, is it not time to get on the correct path with all this corruption going on.

    “Zahran Hashim and his followers targeted Catholic churches in Sri Lanka in 2019”

    I don’t agree with you. Saharan had close links with the ruling regime. Saharan has no reason to attack Catholics in Sri Lanka. Saharan did not involve with any violence with Buddhist Sinhala previously. Easter Bombing must have planned and implemented for particular political purpose. He was used by that political masters. It is also obvious to know from the experience that who had the talent and courage to do successfully that operation. It did not target or hurt not a single Buddhist Sinhala or political leadership.

      for 30 odd years and finished off by.as we all knows .
      But the bombings of the churches and have intelligence and warnings ….
      But in normal way of lives we have Tamil Christians as well as Sinhala Christians some cases share the same churches,but in common.
      But in ground situation we Tamils (specially in SL) don’t wants to go through the dark period to repeat again of the painful,but meantime they were careful to orchestrate not with majority (Buddhists) they knows the consequences may be high and castraphic,
      Even our experts may aware of it but didn’t realize the scale,
      But as we SL unite and work for betterment for our country and for the future for our generation we have good potentials resources and good intelligent people,leave the past and progress for all Sri Lankans regardless.Budu Saranai Insha Allah God Bless Om Nama Sivaya

CBK, Obma, Cameron and there are enough examples before us. But there were some reasons, that Mahinda Rajapakshe cant be away from ACTIVE politics, because the CRIMES he deliberately committed is really high so that political impunity would be the only way out. In the same, his greediness would not calm him down, keeping him away from paving the way his bastard sons to continue his reign.
          :
          That is the reason why MR, amidst being “SERIOUSLY ILL” but cant relinquish… if done so, there are enough to prove to punish him one behind the other with the maximum punishment valid under SRILANKEN law and order.

      ===
      “Easter Bombing must have planned and implemented for particular political purpose.”

      That is why ‘Jadapalana’ Government allowed Muslim terrorists to go ahead and blow up Churches and hotels while they had all the information about attacks well in advance.

    ”Myths cannot be defeated not with other myths, but with the harsh light of reality”

    Certainly but in SL, we love conspiracy theories, myths & even folklore is believed to be historical facts. We are suspicious of the West, believe the CIA & multi nationals are out to destabilise or take control of the country but fail to see the Chinese gradually devouring the nation. We are in denial, therefore, myths provide the happy medium in contrast to harsh reality. The govt. is stupid or the thinks the masses are, or both, otherwise would any competent govt. endorse the backword thinking occult practises of a Minister, & even endorsing a divine concoction by a self acclaimed healer, instead of stamping down on such scams, which are hoodwinking gullible citizens?

      The very same manner, buddhgama monks, if they would add repeatedly RACIAL remarks, that could divide the nation, no matter local media would mild the tune so that the danger would not be gone that far….. that means they are biased as no others.

      Malcom Ranjitha being CLOSE to Rajapakseh HORA NADAYA is doing very bad thing not being independent…. so not only PINGUTHTHARAYA monks, but also some non-buddhagama priests fertilize worsening the situation in our home country.
      :
      Why cant MALCOM RANJITH call a spade a spade regarding the EASTER SUNDAY MASSACRE, let alone today after 2 years gone since innocient worshipers to the churches got killed and injured….. european countries would go on protests even if their would lose few people, but so called BUDDHISM dominated srilanka let it go, even if few hundreds of innocient people being killed by that EASTER bomb attack.

      My Dear Kugan,
      “I studied in Thamil medium.and English as subject not Sinhala at all…”

      Although racist Tamils do not like to admit, this is where things went wrong for Tamil people. Some Tamils say ‘Sinhala Only’ policy was the root cause for the ethnic conflict which is rubbish.
      Racist Tamil politicians Chelvanayakam and Ponnambalam formed Federal Party in 1949 and told Tamils not learn Sinhala in order to keep the two communities apart for their political survival. Even now, though teaching Tamil in Sinhala schools and teaching Sinhala in Tamil schools is compulsory teaching Tamil in most of the schools is ongoing but according to information I have gathered Tamil politicians deliberately block appointment of teachers to teach Sinhala in the North.

      Dear “cugan”
      ,
      .
      You are constructively using English as best as you can. Nothing to apologise for.
      .
      It is very difficult to learn a language, although some people have a knack for it. Obversely, some develop just one language but use it very effectively. We must focus on the content.
      .
      You have developed only Thamil. So what? Well, it, unfortunately, makes it difficult for us to communicate with each other. However, I still respect you. Just keep using English, especially Youtubes that have subtitles in English. That will help you learn English, a bit frustratingly, but effectively. If the subtitles are in Thamil, you will keep translating all your life.
      .
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipwj4ZAq9BU
      .
      I searched for something, just now, and found that. I haven’t listened to it all – just a bit to make sure that it’ll be useful for you. Usually when we teach we make sure that the vocabulary is simple enough for the learner, but you are an adult.

      PART TWO
      .
      In Sri Lanka, the hundred-year-old “Radiant Way” is still in use, and, when used by some teachers, whom I know, to teach children, it may still do some good. I won’t use it! Imagine you having to read nonsense like,
      .
      “Anne has a fan”!
      .
      You’ll go off your head at some point! English is a terrible language for spelling; the books by Dr Seuss get interesting because the meaningless text at least incorporates humour.
      .
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dr._Seuss
      .
      And here’s a book that I read with my own children, but this uses newer technology. I now watched it all.
      .
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eV6Yk127k50
      .
      So, there are few rules, but it must interest the learner. In the Dr Seuss books, there is strict vocabulary control. In the Biden-Trump debate, some words are much too specialised and “difficult” but because the content is still relevant you will find the programme interesting today, but not ten years from now, by when we must hope that Trump and Gota are regarded as nightmares that are over.
      .
      I am a Sri Lankan, yet I don’t know any Thamil at all. Will you forgive me that?

    Yes Rajapaksas and their supporters are a CULT, (Icalled it a MAFIA) just like those domestic terrorist including supremacist,conspiracy theorist (Wimal), nationalistic (Gaman), Neo Nazis (lion parties), rightist(senas), NRA members (underground,criminals ), religious fanatics,(ape man ,Ganasara) anti minorities,(SB) anti Muslims and the rest, just like what we recently saw in Capitol hill, encouraged by the very own President and his elected men , causing wide spread violence,violent take over,looking for people to lynch/kill, anti democratic insurrection.

Let the voters try dissenting and comes Mr. SIRCULAR . For all the big talk he did a complete U Turn on port auctioning. When Show Man retorted on the phone is when General Sircular went for white flag. What a pity.

    The Sinhalese are generally a stupid people. They will pay con men large sums of money to go abroad to various countries when the rules of migration to any given is freely available. They believe all the myths and lies told by the Rajapakshes. Thirupathi is an ancient Kovil visited by many from all over the world. Don’t compare visits to this place done privately to the very public demonstrations of idiotic men given prominence by local media. The only winning formula is to discredit and expose this cult and all its members including the Buddhist clergy, the Rajapakshes family and its boot lickers, and also the so called viyath maga professionals. It has to be an exercise in educating the stupid Sinhalese so that they don’t fall for this bullshit. Sad to see that the SJB is failing miserably at this. Promoting Racists like Dayan Jayathilake and trying to out do the racist Rajapakshes is what the SJB seems to be doing. This is the best time to Bash these bastards mercilessly for what they have done. But all I hear from the SJB is a whimper very similar to RW and his penchant to keeping his mouth shut. A politician cannot afford to keep his mouth shut.

    The Sinhala Buddhist Racist Lady (Tissaranee Gunasekara) swallowed too many Cinders for breakfast and drank bottles of Sulfuric acid. The hand, mouth, and brain lost connection. She is just firing like a mad man with an automatic machine gun. Why these entire hullabaloo in the morning? Well, it is the Sunday Times did it. CT reported a day ago that uncharacteristically, the cunning Aanduwa has released a draft report of UNHRC HC, Bartlett, which was intended for discussion within the parties to arrive at final version to be presented in UNHRC’s 46th sitting, in about a month. The Sunday Times, as known to most, brought a narration of this news yesterday. The strange species Sinhala Buddhist Intellectual Ms Gunasekara has happened to see that. She immediately ran to kitchen and swallowed embers and ran to garage to drink the acid and sat down in front of her computer to blast off every one, including the innocent, 2500 year ago passed away, Buddha too. This essay is a classic example of how the Sinhala Buddhist Intellectuals cook up facts, convolve straight and direct issues to expose their hate feeling against the world, and manipulate the Modayas. She is so upset if Tamils are going get justice based on Ms. Bartlett’s report. She is corrupting the history much worse than Mahanama did.

    At the end, the ultra-racist Ms. Gunasekara is colluding with King by saying “Tamils and Muslims, not by pandering to soft or covert racism but by addressing their very real economic interests. “ She is earnestly believing, by this statement, that Ms. Bartlett would think Sinhalese are a society respect fraternity and equality” and so will rewrite her draft.
    We are not commenting about the draft report, which is causing Tissaranee bobbing & babbling, but only about Sinhala Intellectuals and Aanduwa’s distraction games from 2009. The first UNHRC resolution on Lankawe was in 2009, praising the Chitanta government’s holocaust. In Lankawe, Ministers proposed to then High commissioner Navi Pillai for marriage to shame her by indicating that she is Pariah Demulu and thus they were discounting her. They did that to Professor G. Parthasarathi & now to Dr. Jeysankar. But by 2014, UNHRC had appointed OISL to find the truth of 2009 war end. OISL accused in its report 42 SLFP leaders and Rapist Military heads as war criminals. The UNHRC had brought a new HC and he promised that he personally would take responsibility and withheld the report being presented in March 2015. But by Jan, 2015 Tissaranee Gunasekara had appointed New King as the Royal Highness. Using this opportunity Criminals escaped. White Flag murderer and Batalanda Murderer unitedly destroyed country by excusing all criminals.

    The 19A was intended bring one person, that is Ranil in par with another person that is New King. Because of 19A, they both started to destroy each other’s forgetting the country. (19A is the one Ms. Gunasekara claimed brought back the democracy.) In addition, Yahapalanaya brought laws like Foreign Exchange fraud Amnesty Act 2017 to save Old Kings thefts of $18B. That is what still keeping exchange in free falling and destroying Country’s development. The obvious murderer of local famous people was allowed to cancel his US citizenship and contest for EP by Ranil. Saharan had nothing in that. Ranil and Only Ranil made this arrangement by meeting King at Singapore Hospital. Yahapalanaya robbed central Bank using a Demulu Pariah. Ranil was avoiding all elections knowing the results well ahead. But In the 2017 he conducted to teach a lesson to UNHRC, which was about to review the Resolution 34/1 in the following March. Yahapalanaya faced a historical defeat in that untimely election conducted by Ranil. That loss for Ranil was even well before Sharan was born, I believe. Country’s Law and order went to lowest in the History. They both competed in influencing court verdicts against their acolytes’ criminals but punishing their opponents. Ranjan Ramanayake is one of the revenged by Yahapalanaya rivals. Their internal quarreling was laughed at capital cities of the world.

    Yahapalanaya signed the Resolution 30/1 without even an iota of idea to implement it. It was another 13A. Tamils got frustrated when resolutions 34/1 and 40/1 were passed. Tamils kept protesting at UNHRC against its green flagging for and open deceit. While immediately after signing Resolution 30/1, New King, Ranil and Mangala started to deny in Local public stages that they were not a party in the signature, but Mangala, who the World’s greatest liar kept pulling wool on international watchers eye as 85% 90%, 95% and even 99% of the Resolution was implemented. Harsha went to the Peer Review meeting and played the game even better than Mangala has been playing. On the other hand they even sent Tilak and Jehan PhD to withdraw from UNHRC, in March 2018 sitting. It didn’t work. At last Yahapalanaya was ended by Ranil and New King, separating them. I don’t have to tell here all that happened during Yahapalanaya as everybody, including convoluting Gunasekara. As result New King decided to dump Ranil. New King staged the coup to remove Ranil. External democratic forces, still thing Ranil was Mr. Clean, tried to help Ranil to regain the power. But Ranil had been secretly working with Old King and New King to teach lesson for West on every move.

    Ranil was aware to some extent that where everything could end, but claiming that he, who was the one saved the Rapist Army from External democratic institutions, while fooling Sampanthar and UNHRC. At the end, fearing of an international action may flow through easily because of the internal weakness created by quarrelling Old King, New King & Ranil staged the 4/21 using Saharan, and whose gang was in Aanduwa’s payroll from 2012 to until the bombing. After sending Saharan gang to sites, Aanduwa was transporting the possible witnesses to a government owned house in Sainthamaruthu. When neighbors spotted the witnesses, government bombed the house, in early morning while everybody at sleep. Aanduwa thought everybody might have died and it released a pre prepared list of dead.
    But the wife of Saharan and child were saved by ISIS jihadists in a secret place. So now they are liabilities for government. She got infected by Covid 19, but government didn’t say anything about it. The woman may face Tamilini’s fate. Further Rapist Army didn’t like the super elegant, super intelligent Tamil woman, Pulasthini die in house bombing. So they saved her & had taken her over for them. That is an embarrassment for Aanduwa because it has not even seen fingerprint of her in that house but told they had her DNA within the bodies. Absolute Modayas!

    Further American FBI was there only for two week, but has filed case against three people. After two years, still Lankawe has not filed any case other than having a possible witness, Haffaze Hisbullah, against Yahapalanaya in its “Operation Tamil Churches Bombing”. But cunningly Ms Gunasekara loaded it all on Saharan as he who was the one this time seated Royals on the throne. . New King explicitly deiced to bring SLFP to surrender Royals’ Slap Party. During EP election, nobody was standing in SLFP label. Ranil Tried to block Vaalaiththodam standing against King and splitting King’s votes. He told Vaalaiththodam that he didn’t like any UNP standing in election. He was looking for outsiders. I don’t remember the names, but I know Dhammika was one of them. That action has now wiped out UNP, at least temporarily. That is how Yahapalanaya and Ranil proved to the World how the regime, which was brought by an International effort (or Tissaranee’s appointment) was functioning for the last five years

    Now the Ultra-Racist author is saying Leader Pirapaharan seated Old King on the throne, but she herself later brought Ranil, but another minority Jihadist has seated Royals back again on the throne. Sadly it is the British government seated the Jihadist Kandy Ayatollahs and Catholic Don Stephen on the power and in turn, those crooks only seated Leader Pirapaharan in the minds of Tamil.

    “Tamils and Muslims, not by pandering to soft or covert racism but by addressing their very real economic interests. “ This is how the Racist Sinhala Buddhist Intellectuals feed Opium to the minds of Sinhala Buddhist Modayas. Tissaranee Gunasekara is saying “the dogs standing in North or East doors step of my house need only a pieces of bone and If I throw it to them, they can keep enslaving us”. Who this Queen Tissaranee to whom Tamils signed their slave deed and she throw them the development and keep their sovereignty with her?
    The fence eating crops in another form of Journalist and writers misrepresent facts and history. The misguiding ignorant Sinhalese using lies & misinterpretation them like” Saharan brought to power, Pirapaharan brought power” where election was declared fair and just and so Saharan race and Pirapaharan have should feel happy with food and water is nothing but fascism and Chauvinism. As the citizens of Lankawe, at this time all Tamils deserve their rights recognized to decide whether they want their sovereignty established and take part in decision making or take alms Sinhala Majority wants to throw and allow them in peace to take decision for Tamils.
    Do anybody need any evidence for why 1). Tamils have to go alone 2). International Investigation should start on Lankawe Aanduwa as soon as UNHRC 46th sitting ends.

    Tisaranee you try to flavor your article by criticizing main opposition. That itself will support continuation of family regime. Role of media should be to highlight public opinion in such a way to give direction to main opposition party. Biggest achievement of SJB so far is getting rid of Ranil and his acolyte .

    Thisaranee thanks for your efforts to educate the Sri Lankan electorate not to put their life at the mercy of – confidence tricksters and Dhammika Paniyas.

    What about the level of politicians that put their trust in the Dhammika paniyas?

    What is the mental capacity of UNP, SJB ? are they better than this lot?
