D.B.S. Jeyaraj And The Bogey Of The Reincarnation Of The Tiger

D.B.S.Jeyaraj and the bogey of the reincarnation of the Tiger: Battle of the Fourth Estate in Post Civil War Sri Lanka

The ethnic conflict and civil war in Sri Lanka have been fuelled by many actors from various ethnic communities from within the country as well as from abroad, especially since 1972. Three most critical groups of actors within the Tamil minority community who have fuelled this conflict are the entire armed Tamil militants, most Tamil democratic politicians, and few Tamil journalists.

The most notable of the latter are David Buell Sabapathy Jeyaraj (popularly known as David Jeyaraj or DBS in short) and the late Dharmaratnam Sivaram (whose nom de plume was Taraki). Both Jeyaraj and Sivaram have been oscillating as advocates of both the devils in Sri Lanka’s ethnic conflict and civil war (the State and the Tigers) from time to time. During most part of his career as a journalist DBS has been concocting stories on behest of both the devils in Sri Lanka’s ethnic conflict from over ten thousand kilometres away, while Sivaram has been residing in Sri Lanka throughout his life. The singular advantage these two Tamil journalists had vis-à-vis other (especially Tamil) journalists in Sri Lanka was their competency in all three languages; English, Sinhala, and Tamil. These two members of the fourth estate used and abused their comparative advantage for personal (material) gain and (immaterial) glory. Sivaram has been able to even dupe western academics such as Mark Whitaker who called him “…….a revolutionary Tamil journalist…..”. My criticism of these two journalists should not be misconstrued as condoning the killing of Sivaram in 2005 or severe physical attack on DBS in the streets of Scarborough (Toronto) sometime in the early 1990s.

DBS

DBS

It is in the light of the foregoing that this article is penned and the immediate cause is the article by DBS titled “A bigger plan by the LTTE nipped in the bud” published in the Daily Mirror (Sri Lankan daily newspaper) of 29 March 2014,  which raises more questions than it answers. The first time I suspected DBS’s credibility was when he wrote a detailed article in the same Daily Mirror immediately after the last Presidential Election about four years ago (in February 2010) about the rivalry between the former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka and the Rajapaksa brothers to share the spoils of the civil war. The second time I suspected DBS’s credibility and honesty was when he atrociously defended the blatant lies written by Niromi de Soyza in her purported memoir in a series of articles written during December 2011 and January 2012 in response to the criticisms of the memoir leveled by a number of people including this author. Now for the third time, in my memory, DBS has played the role of devil’s advocate in writing an article on the purported reincarnation of the LTTE in Sri Lanka. Besides, even before the Government of Sri Lanka officially proscribed a number of pro-Tiger groups in the Diaspora in early April 2014, DBS has written about the impending proscription in his personal blog. The foregoing reveals that DBS writes from Canada on the basis of information second handedly fed to him by vested interests in Sri Lanka as well as the Diaspora.

David Jeyaraj, in contravention of ethics and principles of journalism, hides his lies by writing almost entirely in his personal blog www.dbsjeyaraj.com which he solely moderates and thereby prevents corrections, alternative viewpoints, and adverse comments on or criticism of his writings becoming public. The Daily Mirror also connives with DBS in hiding his untruths by not publishing critical comments about his articles by its readers including this author.

This author’s primary concern is NOT about the truths or untruths of DBS’s writings in general, and in the aforementioned articles in particular. My primary concern is how did DBS know such minute details of incidences and occurrences that had taken place or takes place more than ten thousand kilometres away from his abode in Toronto? By his own admission DBS has not visited Sri Lanka since he fled the country in the late 1980s until late 2013. In this circumstance, how did DBS investigate or collect information about members of the Sri Lanka Army who had supported their former Field Commander Sarath Fonseka and the Commander-in-Chief President Rajapaksa or the purported reincarnation of the LTTE in Tharmapuram (in the Kilinochchi district along the Paranthan-Puthukudiyirupu Road) in particular or in the Northern Province in general? Is it correct, in terms of professional ethics, to report on such sensitive matters from information obtained through vested interests? How does DBS verify the authenticity of such information from over ten thousand kilometres away?

His latest article on the purported reincarnation of the LTTE in Sri Lanka makes me seriously suspect that DBS’s recent visit to Sri Lanka after a lapse of almost twenty-five years was state-sponsored, state-orchestrated, and military-escorted. If not, how come he was taken by the Sri Lanka Navy to view the Ramar Palam (Ramar Bridge) at the Indo-Lanka maritime border in northwestern Sri Lanka off the Mannar Island? Is he such a VIP? Moreover, I seriously suspect that DBS’s visit to Sri Lanka and his spectacular revelation about the purported reincarnation of the LTTE (just two days after the UNHRC resolution was passed) was state—orchestrated to counter the resolution against the Sri Lankan State in the annual sessions of the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva and reinvent the bogey of the Tigers.

Although I do not know any information about GOPI and his accomplices, I deeply suspect the claim made by DBS that they were plotting a high-profile assassination in Colombo or the suburbs “utilising the element of surprise”. Although I do not have any first-hand information as DBS claims to have, circumstantial evidence does not indicate any truth in such a spectacular claim. I know for sure that a small section of the Tamil Diaspora wants to take revenge on the Rajapaksas in particular and the Sri Lankan State in general for the defeat of the LTTE. However, their targeting of the Rajapaksas and the Sri Lankan State is through the United Nations in particular and the international community in general; in which they seem to have been successful after almost five years since the demise of the Tigers. Under this positive outcome, a fringe of the Tamil Diaspora would not indulge in or instigate violence in Sri Lanka and sully their “victory”.

The reinvention of the bogey of the Tigers in the name of Gopi and his accomplices (including Jeyakumari, et al) appears to be a counter offensive and part of a master plan by the Sri Lankan State against the UNHRC resolution passed on 27 March 2014. By reviving the fear psychosis among the northern population, the State is attempting to intimidate the potential eyewitnesses to the impending international inquiry into the violations of the international laws of armed conflict. For example, recently few hundreds of youths were asked to assemble in a playground in Vattukottai in the Jaffna peninsula for inquiry by the military. Few of them were taken away for further investigation, but local people insist that the few youths taken away for further investigation were not from their area. It appears that youths are taken from outside a cordoned-off area and then taken back from the same area to give an impression to local population that their cordon and search operation was successful in apprehending few suspects.

Pursuit of the politics of vengeance by both the Tamil Diaspora and the Sri Lankan State in the aftermath of the civil war has been one of the biggest impediments to reconciliation among different ethnic communities in Sri Lanka. Tragically the politics of vengeance advanced by both the protagonists of the civil war and its aftermath is pursued with the help of the fourth estate. While the Tamil Diaspora has deployed journalists, and reportedly funds a television channel in Tamilnadu State in India to advance its cause, the Sri Lankan State has deployed a Tamil journalist in India, David Buell Sabapathy Jeyaraj in Canada, inter alia, and reported to have purchased a Tamil Diaspora television channel Theepam TV based in London to do its bidding. Unfortunately it is the innocent Tamil civilians in eastern and northern Sri Lanka who are caught in between these two devils and likely to pay the ultimate price for the post-civil war politics of vengeance. Furthermore, mercenary journalists such as David Buell Sabapathy Jeyaraj are sullying the integrity of their profession, which is already under immense pressure by the Sri Lankan State.

    DBS is well past his journolist days. He is a old man trying to keep a sense of himself alive by writing these dys.
    I personally think DBS gretest writing are the arts articles on Tamil cinema, Sinhala cineam etc. He writes them with expert knowledge, erudition and passion

        The Writer States’How does DBS collect inormation on sri lanka and verify the authenticity of such information from over ten thousand kilometres away?’ YES THE SIMILAR SHOULD BE ASKED OF THE CH4 SO CALLED JOURNALIST.. ONE ARGUMENT LEVELLED AGAINST DBS, SHOULD ALSO BE LEVELED AGAINST THE CH4 AND IN GENERAL TO MANY CONTRIBUTORS OF THE CMB TELEGRAPH.. ALL EMIGRES IN THE WEST OR ELSE WHERE.. HOW DOES ONE’verify the authenticity of such information’ OR is it just lies like you say DBS is.. But funny thought how some LTTE emigres agree with you when it comes to DBS and the facts you state.. yet HAIL others Such as CH4 and others who only Attack one side that’s in the Government in particular.. Strange in deed.

          “YES THE SIMILAR SHOULD BE ASKED OF THE CH4 SO CALLED JOURNALIST.. ONE ARGUMENT LEVELLED AGAINST DBS, SHOULD ALSO BE LEVELED AGAINST THE CH4 AND IN GENERAL TO MANY CONTRIBUTORS OF THE CMB TELEGRAPH..”

          there is a huge difference though , DBS starts reporting minute by minute precision details almost before the end of any drama . whereas C4 produces it’s documentary movies after taking a considerable time period !

            ‘considerable time period’ ??

            Having compiled the CH4 Docu drama in Advanced and TIMELY RELEASE to coincide with the UNHCR is not ‘considerable time period’ That’s Deliberate targeted timing to manipulate events. Bit different know from traditional journalism even minute by minute ones..

              “Having compiled the CH4 Docu drama in Advanced and TIMELY RELEASE to coincide with the UNHCR is not ‘considerable time period’

              you contradict your own argument , here we are talking about how DBS produce surgical precision, minute by minute narrative in any given major incident even BEFORE THE DRAMA ENDS , you tried to compare with C4 ! contrary to DBS , C4 is an organization (TV channel)and have full time professional employers to just to do that job , whether you accept them as a TV station or a professional organization is quite irrelevant here , the fact of the matter is C4 starts it’s planning & production well in advance (
              considerable time period) so that they could release their latest additions before the UNHRC session in march.

              “That’s Deliberate targeted timing to manipulate events.Bit different know from traditional journalism even minute by minute ones”

              Ofcourse C4 deliberate timing is obvious and they are working against the brotherhood ,all of us fully aware of it , but don’t take your argument else where , try to stick to the point !

Dubious also, these days, has become one sided. Now, until his death, he has to worship the devil or bite the bullet.

      Many thanks for this excellent and courageous analysis Dr. Muttukrishna.

      You are indeed correct to say that DBS has abandoned ALL journalistic ethics and like Karuna Amman, Devanandan etc. has sold his soul to Gotabaya Jarapassa for a ‘mess of pottage’.

      The resurrection of the LTTE is a MYTH put out by the Sri Lanka military intelligence:
      1. in order to justify the massive military budget and occupation of the north.
      2. To take revenge on the NPC and Tamil civilians for the Geneva Debacle and UN war crimes investigation
      3. To intimidate and silence Tamils and use the minority question to justify the military build up and permamnant STATE OF EMERGENCY and the DEEP STATE of the Mahinda Rajapakse military dictatorship.
      The resurrection of the Tiger along, with the BBS is the CHAOS STRATEGY of the regime that was articulated by Lalith Weeratunge – the Chaos Specialist.
      The Fourth Estate in Sri Lanka is a disgrace to be uncritically running the SPIN and Propaganda of the Rajapakse quasi military dictatorship.

      The Indians have a term; FAKE ENCOUNTER for the murder of civilians by the military. This term is widely used in Kashmir.
      The name of the game – how Gopi and friends were murdered by the Sri Lankan state Terrorism apparatus is – ‘FAKE ENCOUNTER’ to justify murder of youth by the military and State terrorism and harassment of Tamil minority.
      Why were Gopi and 2 friends shot dead by battalions of Sri Lanka military, after the vote in Geneva on war crimes in Sri Lanka? This is Gota the Goon and Mahinda Rajapaksa’s revenge on Tamils..

      There must be an inquiry into this FAKE ENCOUNTER and the Grenade story in Killinochchi said to have injured a policeman, as well which let to arrest of Tamil women activist and her daughter… Why were Gopi and 2 friends not captured alive? Was this a FAKE ENCOUNTER – as happens all the time in India’s Kashmir? The concept of balance and PROPORTIONALITY is totally absent in the manner in which State Terror has been unleashed after a FAKE ENCOUNTER engineered by Gota’s militia in the northern province.

THESE WERE ALL IN OUR IMAGINATIONS. yet how the evidence point to different facts. Gutter Muttukrishna Sarvananthan attacks any kind of Tamil who opposes the LTTE. this gutter article represents the lamp-post style killings of Tamil traitors who talk ill of the Beloved LTTE.. The same LTTE who were and are the grave diggers of the Sri Lankan people and Tamils in particular..

    DBS will write anything to get some mileage out of it. It can be either glory or some material benefit from the government. But Taraki Sivaram had much more integrity and honesty. Recently I read in the Colombo Telegraph how the government had bribed several hundred journalist in SriLanka.It does not take much to buy DBS.

    DBS has been [Edited out]. Originally DBS allowed comments in his website. However, from the time he fell on the lap of Rajapakse he has stopped from allowing comments. He knows if he allows comments then the readers will challenge his lies. He has lost his credibility. Its time for him to retire.

    The first time I suspected that DBSJ was being made use of by MR was when he wrote in minute detail of how KP was abducted from Malaysia via Bangkok to Sri Lanka, living thousands of miles away, when in fact KP was escorted with full security and kept as a VIP under MR. This was soon after VP abandoned Kilinochchi and assembled on the beach front for surrender after burying their entire stock of heavy artillery. KP obviously knew of what was going to happen to VP and his cadre who were to surrender. In such a scenario it was safer for KP to be under security of MR than live outside as someone would have bumped KP off for the great betrayal of VP. The entire War between the LTTE and the MR govt. was a hoax and only a propaganda war. Lasantha Wickrematunge was aware of this under hand deal. That is why LW was killed by the MR regime fearing that he would expose the plan hatched by India and America for MR to liquidate VP and part of the LTTE. Had LW done so, it would have exposed MR, VP, KP, America and India all who plotted to dupe the gullible Public in this country to believe that MR defeated the LTTE. It is for this reason that the Americans and the Indians who so vociferously fight for Human Rights now, were quiet when LW was murdered in cold blood in the HSZ in Colombo. Now it is retribution time for all of them.

    Tamils at least now should understand that there are Tamils like this Bugger DBSJ who are no different to MR and KP in their midst.

    In event DBSJ is perceived as an impartial commentator by most readers. Ever since the stripped felines laid a beating on him he has been critical of that organization in any of its manifestations.

    Most veteran SL journalists have contacts and relationships with leading members of the party that is power. T Sabratnam, Sivaram, Lasantha etc etc. You have to otherwise you get cut out of the loop. That may involve planting a a story or two. It is a sad fact but you have to be a moron to thnk that journalists don’t have an angle. It is up to the readers to glean what is plausible. To treat any journalist of any ilk as bastions of integrity is sure sign that you are not cognizent of the realities of that profession. Dr Muthukrishna himself has angle. He has to. It may not be flagrant but it is there in the way he deploys his prose.

    If Dr Sharavananda is say saying that DBSJ is full time Rajapakse stooge. I don’t agree, If he is saying that DBSJ writes with an angle that much is obvious.

    One thing DBSJ has to do is stop recycling all those old article and presenting them as new and enough of the promises of dealing wth issues in forth coming articles.

      Bedrock Barney, You have said it well. Journalists embellish their articles sometimes to add colour and make their work believable. To me DBSJ is credible enough. On the other hand Sarvananthanan, shows his partiality too even though he tries to project a non partisan facade. All the reader requires is that the core of the article is balanced and free of deliberate falsification.

      As for me,I prefer to hold my breath on the bogey about the striped quadruped’s reincarnation by DBSJ.

    Yet another well written article that makes people like us who once thought well of DBS to realise that he too has received a laptop from GOSL. I am told he is heavily substance dependent helping the Scottish economy and is keen to return to SL and is therefore keen to appease the govt. The article that he wrote a few months ago finding fault with Chief Minister Wigneswaran for saying that he cannot work with the military Governor was so one sided that I felt disappointed with DBS. Objectivity and neutrality are essential characteristics for a journalist to be respected and having failed this litmus test, DBS should consider pouring himself another drink and calling it a day in journalism.

    DBSJ’s bluff has final been exposed.
    It was high time.
    His latest attempts to aid in the “resurrection” of the LTTE to enable the sri Lankan state to continue the repression of tamils, especially in the northeast was disgusting.
    He has been earning extra money by being a lackey of the MR regime.
    People like him have been the bane of tamils who fought for justice.

    ” Pursuit of the politics of vengeance by both the Tamil Diaspora and the Sri Lankan State in the aftermath of the civil war has been one of the biggest impediments to reconciliation among different ethnic communities “

    That this statement has embedded truth in it is granted, though it is somewhat weighted against the Sri Lankan government. The vengeance was most obvious from the LTTE proxies within the Tamil ‘diaspora’. The propaganda was vile, vicious and unremitting. It still is.

    The Sri Lankans, be they Tamil, Sinhala or any other, had more important things on their minds, primarily about making a living. The diaspora on the other hand , well ensconced in their foreign havens, had time on their hands, used primarily to do damage to Sri Lanka for a multitude of unrelated reasons.

    Gobi (we had been told he was a ‘myth’) and two others were killed in a firefight, the bodies were identified by relatives and buried under judicial supervision. Gopi on the other hand fell into Sri Lankan hands via Malaysia, displaying to the world that the government has NOT let down it’s guard, while carrying out the rapid infrastructure development of the north.

    DBS has finally been exposed as an agent of the Rajapaksa regime. Soon after I read his article on the revival of the LTTE I realised that DBS was playing a dirty game in support of the regime. The man has become an enemy of the Tamil people in his old age. Tamils don’t need people like him working against their interests at a time when they are under severe attack by the Rajapaksa regime.

    This man Muttukrishna has too many suppositions in his narrative. Almost like groping in the dark. It is quite easy to criticize and to plant suspicions. There is no substance to his charade of balderdash.

    But one thing is clear. In Muttukrishna’s view and that of many LTTE supporting tamils, DBSJ’s sin is his not writing material that will be useful to screw the present regime in Sri Lanka.

    Colombo Telegraph and Tamilnet do a good job of villyfying the present regime. So much for objective journalism.

    Dr.Sarvanathan should be commended for writing this article. Many readers would have wondered about DBS Jeyaraj bona fides but nobody took the initiate to write an article to question it

    Mr. Jeyaraj himself admitted that he indulges in first person narrative even if he was not present to cover the event. This he admitted in a tribute he wrote about his friend Nvamani editor M.P.M.Azhar. That is his style of story telling. See the link

    https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/srilankamuslims/conversations/messages/3400.

    However what is not widely know in his alleged connection to military intelligence. I initially thought Mr. Jeyaraj is being used an outlet or a conduit to plant military intelligence versions of stories in the web. The Transcurrent website he used to host could have been funded by military intelligence and was shut down few months after the war with LTTE was over because the need disappeared.

    Jeyaraj was given a coded message by his informants about VP’s demise as “Captain out match over”. He immediately went to publish an article on his Transcurrent website about possible death of VP well before government announced it. Later published another article as to how VP met his end. This version matched exactly the military intelligence’s publicized version i.e. he and his party were ambushed when they tried get away in ambulance or a van.

    The Tamil population in SriLanka and the Tamil Diaspora know very well that DBS works for Rajapakes. DBS, a shamless Tamil who [Edited out] will take his place in history along with Karuna,Plillayan, KP, Douglas and the likes. Does he realize how his story about the rebirth of Tigers impact the poor Tamil peasants in the North and East of SL ?.There is more reason to keep the army in the North, there are more arrests of civilian activists, there is overt and veiled threats to any Tamil who answers interrogation by International bodies like UN.Further there is more surveillance on student leaders in schools and universities.In short DBS wants to keep his Tamil brothers as slaves to his master Rajapakse. Why is he selling his race in his old age?

    GOSL has servants writting on their behalf BUT the pro LTTE Diaspora has coolies wrtting for them with bing credentials behind their names.

    A case in point here is that there is no effort towards reconcilliation but to stoke the fires in overseas capitals with a block vote in hand to enhance their comforts.
    Who cares for the Tamils making out a living in Sri Lanka.
    This is the tongue in cheek selfish and shameless pro ltte diasspora.

    The day S.J.Emmanuel declared that he is first a Tamil & then a Catholic shredding the teaching that One love GOD with all his heart and Soul…………
    AND
    With it was born the Sinhala Nationalists…
    That they are First Sinhalease and Then Buddhist.

    Sinhala Buddhist being the majority & Emmanuel leading the way & THE SELFISH DIASSPORA WHO HAS NO SYMPATHY FOR TAMILS LIVING IN SRI LANKA BUT TO FURTHER THEIR OWN SELFISH GAINS, ” RECONCILLIATION WILL NOT BE SEEN EVEN IN THE DISTANT FUTURE.”
    SAD BUT TRUE BUT ITS A REALITY……………

    So this what selfish Diasspora tamils together with Tamil politicians seek as they enjoy the best from both worlds.
    Oh !!!!!! selfish diasspora & tamil politicians, why have you abondoned the Tamils living in sri lanka?
    why ?why ?? why ?????????????
    Will you mind your own business and leave us in peace.

      “GOSL has servants writting on their behalf BUT the pro LTTE Diaspora has coolies wrtting for them with bing credentials behind their names.”

      Could you summarise in your own words the difference you experienced between a servant and a coolie?

      Whats wrong being a coolie?

      Was your great grand father a rocket scientist, brain surgeon, or nano technologist?

    Though i am not a fan of DBSJ, it must be said that most of the questions raised by this author are of the nature of,

    1. How did he know that?
    2. How does he know such minute details?
    and i am NOT sure but how does he know sort of questions. These are questions normally asked by readers whose only source of infor is that particular journalist and this article can hardly be called a proper crtiticism of DBSJ.

    But the most important sections of article is,

    ” I know for sure that a small section of the Tamil Diaspora wants to take revenge on the Rajapaksas in particular and the Sri Lankan State in general for the defeat of the LTTE. However, their targeting of the Rajapaksas and the Sri Lankan State is through the United Nations in particular and the international community in general;”

    I beg to differ. DBSJ in my opinion has tried to be fair in most cases. If at all he has shown a bias towards the LTTE and the so called Tamil “cause”.

    If there were more people like him writing to the web the Die- Arse- Pora would get a better reception among rational Sinhalese.

    DBSJ is a journo.He will publish the truth.Before we bash him better to see whether he published any untruths.He said that a police officer named rathnakumara was hit in the thigh and groin by gunshots from a guy hiding under the bed at this woman’s house.Now guys better to verify whether this is true or not before bashing DBSJ.It is easy for somebody to see whether in fact there was a police officer called rathnakumara and whether this incident happened or not before bashing DBSJ.The writer of this article could have done that without skirting the issue.It is indeed a serious incident if it indeed happened and let us verify that before going after the journalist.If this gopi was indeed hovering around trying to create mischief then his master is the culprit who has put the tamils in tight situation again,not the journalist.If it can be proved that such an incident did not take place at all,then i too will join in bashing DBSJ for misinforming the tamils with government propaganda.Let us first find out this as a first step.
