Deport Brigadier Fernando: TNA Joins Diaspora Furore

The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) has joined 10 foreign-based Tamil diaspora organizations in demanding that Boris Johnson, MP and Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs ‘to declare the Sri Lankan military attache, Brigadier Priyanka Fernando a “Persona Non Grata” for committing serious offences under British Law, abusing diplomatic immunity in the UK and committing war crimes and crimes against humanity in Sri Lanka and therefore to curtain his leave to remain in the UK.’

Leader of the TNA R. Sampanthan

The letter has been signed by representatives of the following diaspora organizations apart from the TNA: British Tamil Conservatives (BTC), British Tamil Forum (BTF), Global Tamil Forum (GTF), International Centre for the Prevention and Prosecution of Genocide (ICPPG), Tamils Coordinating Committee (TCC-UK), Tamils for Labour, Tamil Friends of the Liberal Democrats, Tamil Information Centre (TIC), Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) and Tamil Solidarity.

This follows Fernando making a throat-slitting gesture towards protestors demonstrating outside the Sri Lanka mission in London on the country’s Independence Day.

While the UK High Commission in Colombo had lodged a protest with Sri Lanka’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs upon which the Government was to recall Fernando, President Maithripala Sirisena revoked the decision.

        Generally sums up the low esteem and mannerisms of the sinhalese. That cannot come as a surprise in he language you have chosen and how the Brigadier has behaved. Such lowly creatures see it befitting to comment without shame.

          The statement by Mr Sambandan is a slap in the face to MR who said that actions of Tamil diaspora against the brigadier will not be condoned by Tamils in Srilanka. MR has the audacity to say that the brigadier was only scratching his neck and not showing any threatening gestures. If brigadier is suffering from itch why the hell did Srilanka send this Horiya (Soriyan in Tamil) to UK to contaminate others.

        Analyst! let everyone express their opinion and leave it the readers to decide for themselves you like it or not. Or you prefer only your opinion to be the only voice what are you bigot or a Liberal hypercritic?
        Trying to articulate your disdain and hatred with foul language only demeans the point you trying to make. So analyze the comment and give a worthy rebuttal but then again if you are a bigot it may be very difficult to adjust.

        It is regrettable that you ANALYST cannot even spell Mr Sambandan’s name right, or doesn’t want to. You don’t touch him with your insults; you only lower yourself, and the rest of us Sinhalese as well.

        If you struggle to get your viewpoint across without stooping to foul language, the deficiency could be educational, upbringing or even the lineage.

            “Brigadier Throat-Cutter Fernando had frightened all elements of Tamil diaspora into silence”. In UK you will see that all these cardboard weerayas go into hiding when they hear LTTE supporters are around. Bravery of these seethala chandiyas is only behind closed doors to a bigoted sycophantic Sinhala crowd. Even when a old person like me scolded two young Sinhalese in suddha Sinhala, both of them kept quiet. When this is so, how can this puny brigadier silence Tamils in UK.

      Look who is talking about self-respect? If a Sinhalese President revokes the decision of a govt, no less, to censure the Brigadier, apparently because he is running low in the polls, that is not political but if someone representing the Northern Tamil Homeland says something, it becomes political. Stop being a silly donkey.

      Dear Touchy-Sensitive-Feeling,
      Great to see the big storm in a tiny glass of water gathering pace. As Opposition Leader of Sri Lanka, he should send his request or demand to GOSL. Not to the UK. DISAPPOINTING!
      PS:
      Please note all TNA MPs have sold their car permits. 33 million bucks a piece. Well documented by anti-corruption fighter Nagananda Kodituwakku. “FIGHTING” for rights of impoverished, rural Tamils and PEALAM is big business. Keep going you have a bright future.

      Mr. Sampanthan,

      Yes, it is a good idea to deport Para-Priyanka Fernando ( is he a Para-Portuguese?), but not to Lanka, the Land of native Veddah Aethho, but to India, Bharat, Damba-Diva, his Para-homeland.

      Next all the Paras in the land of Native Veddha Aethho should be deported to their Para-Homelands.

      Yes, the Para-British made serious errors, by introducing Westminster style democracy to the Paras in Lanka, whose average IQ is 79, compared to 100 for the Para-British. It is like giving a razors to a bunch of monkeys, Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamil monkeys, who have been slashing themselves for the past 70 years.What is ironic is that the Para-Sinhala are showing their stupidity in the Para-British backyard.

    Opposition Leader Sampanthan should be arrested for using LTTE tiger symbols in his election leaflets. He should be removed from the Opposition Leader portfolio forthwith.
    .
    No wonder all LTTE die hard supporters of GTF, TGTE, BTC, BTF, ICPPG, TCC-UK, TIC and LTTE’s political arm TNA fuming against our brave Brigadier as they regard UK as LTTE’s adopted mother. Late Anton Balasingham and his wife Adela practiced terrorism overtly with the support of British Parliamentarians. Balasingham couple remote controlled Prabhakaran and planned terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka for decades, while living in UK, with the full knowledge of British Intelligence. Adela is known to be tying cyanide capsules around the necks of terrorists, especially child soldiers.
    .
    What a joke! LTTE diaspora has requested the British authorities to declare ‘persona non grata’ under British Law to our Brigadier, when the British Law doesn’t even apply to him. All LTTE supporters in GTF, TGTE, BTC, BTF, ICPPG, TCC-UK, TIC should be in jail under the British Prevention of Terrorism Law. We should not open up new trade links with UK as long as they promote and nurture LTTE which is a proscribed terrorist outfit under their own law.

      Champa the stupid Sinhalised low caste Tamil Nadu kallathoni descendant, go ahead and arrest Sampanthan, if the government has guts. There is nothing wrong in using Tiger flag (not the LTTE flag), as Cholas used it when they ruled Srilanka and also flag of Trincomalee has tiger emblem. (flag of Jaffna has Nandi emblem). There is a bunch of jokers called all party parliamentary group for Srilanka. These idiots have not opened their mouths so far on this matter, knowing very well that they will be reprimanded by their party for trying to cover up a criminal. At least in future see that you do not send such Horiyas (Soriyan in Tamil) to UK. “We should not open up new trade links with UK as long as they promote and nurture LTTE which is a proscribed terrorist under their own law” – What a crap coming out of an illiterate sycophant. Did you hear that Srilanka has invited Ranil Jayawardena a SL origin MP to Srilanka to discuss trade promotion with UK. Go ahead and sever all trade with not only UK but western countries which condemn violation of human rights of Tamils in Srilanka. Take your memory back to the period 1970 – 1977 when the then government foolishly took anti-west stand and which resulted in people searching dust bins for food. Secondly LTTE proscription has been lifted and their actions including flying LTTE flag is legal. UK never took offence with LTTE for their political stand to liberate Tamils from Sinhala racism and state terrorism.

          What I meant by “Tiger” is LTTE terrorists as everybody knows. They have not only displayed LTTE terrorists’ flag but also aired LTTE songs in their election rallies. The problem with Sampanthan and other TNA politicians is they have done nothing to uplift the lives of Northern Tamils. So they try to resurrect LTTE as a solution to their incapability. Other than promoting separatism, Sampanthan has never uttered a word in the Parliament on behalf of ordinary Tamils. Terrorist sympathizer Sampanthan is not fit to hold the Opposition Leader position. He should be arrested for promoting and cultivating terrorism.

        Dr. Gnana Sankaralingam
        Hello, you are a descendant of low caste Tamil Nadu Kallathoniya, not I. I have a connection to the deepest of roots in my country. Your reading and understanding ability seem to be very poor. Sri Lanka didn’t invite Ranil. The British government appointed him as the trade envoy to negotiate new trade links with Sri Lanka knowing well that Sri Lankan public dissent the British over war crimes issue. That is the reason I am telling our leaders to make use of this opportunity to raise the LTTE matter.
        Show me proof that the LTTE ban was lifted in the UK.
        Man, what do you know about LTTE.
        LTTE was initially formed not against Sinhalese. It was established against high caste Vellala Kallathonis who suppressed and deprived low caste Tamils of their rights and treated them as slaves. Almost all Tamil leaders killed by Prabhakaran were Vellalas. He wanted a Vellala-free separate area in the North/East for low caste Tamils, ruled by him. It was Vellalas who converted Prabhakaran’s freedom struggle against Vellala slavery to a fight against Sinhalese.
        One day a Sinhalese will give all low caste Tamils in the North of their due rights and help them live as rich and comfortable as Vellalas. Tamils in Jaffna should elect me to Parliament in 2020 from their riding. I can take good care of them.

            Arya Charkvartis were not born in Sri Lanka. You are a nonnative. Thank you for the info. Arya Chakravartis were pirates who raided Sri Lanka and then took over Jaffna. They were regarded as Kings as they took hold of our Sacred Tooth Relics which is the symbol of Kingship. Later, they were chased by Portuguese back to India. Seriously, when did your people come back and got our citizenship?

At the same time TNA tribes knows NFF tribal leader actually wanted carpet bombing in the North and expressed his desire to bomb the Parliament. Dayan believes TNA Chief is not the legitimate opposition leader. On the other hand clan chief believes he is so capable he should be given the leadership of his dad’s party as well as his kid brother’s party.

      The officially elected chief of the country is adamant no uniformed personnel should be called to account for crimes committed in the previous ten years, including human rights violations, war crimes, crime against humanity, corruption, …. nepotism, ………………….. He is being loyal to the uniformed tribes, …………..

        Of course, Is that why the Tamils of Tamil Nadu did nothing to stop the war and supported Dr Mahinda (LLD + PhD X 3)?

        “Ground swell for Mahinda has started and he will come back regardless of the opinions of half a dozen retirees with no votes here. So keep stirring the shit and smear yourself!”

        Only a few weeks ago you were against Dr Mahinda. Suddenly the smart ass patriot has completely change your mind and made you forget all the crimes that were committed by the clan. What is the matter with you?

        Does it make much difference if Dr Mahinda ran the local governments or Ranil ran it. What is in it for the people people know what is in it for the clan.

Either the charges were false and meant to deceive the public and induce public hatred against Rajapaksha, or Ranil and his gang sided with Rajapakshas to protect them in return for the former’s planned stripping of national assets, or the yahapalu administration is totally incompetent and inept. Rajapaksha man in Dubhai, the latest yahapalu incompetence or false charge. We judge by performance and results, and not blind loyalty to any party as you have. So there!

            Seriously did you expect Ranil or Sirisena to send all political crooks to prison leave alone the clan?
            Even JR didn’t dare sending the Weeping Widow to prison but stripped her civil rights.

            ” You tell me why?”

            You work it out for yourself.

            It works this way you scratch my back I will scratch yours. However it can be safely said, you scratch my b***s I scratch yours.

            Could you name one corrupt politician or state functionary being sent to prison for corruption, murder, ….. crimes considered punishable by rule of law. There is one exception, how long did it take to imprison Mahinda/ Gota’s pet Sampath Vidanapathirana? Cameron caught Dr Mahinda by his b***s, by miracle intervention no sooner than he left Sampath Vidanapathirana was found guilty and sentenced to prison. Whether he is actually serving the prison sentence is another matter.

    Good governance, my foot. Mangala did the correct thing by having this brute of an army officer suspended. The farmer president who does not understand the basics of decency revoked this decision mainly to keep the extremist Buddhist monkeys happy. SL will be viewed by the world and by decent human beings as a country that is morally bankrupt and does not have any decency or values. To add to this the corrupt Navin Dissanaike whose father stole millions from the poor people of this country has made a stupid statement to the effect that the sadist gesture by this ignorant army murderer was made within the embassy premises and is thus ok. This idiot Navin does not understand that whether the gesture made inside the embassy premises or outside the issue here is the improper and disgraceful behaviour of an embassy officer which should under no circumstances be tolerated. Goes to show his upbringing and how the arsonist gene that destroyed the Jaffna library has been passed on to him. To add to the complete lack of discipline and good behaviour we have the army chief making a statement that no investigation is necessary obviously influenced by the farmer presidents unlawful, unethical and illiterate involvement. Bar a few decent politicos like Mangala and Ranil, I dread to think what the situation would be if the MS group or the crooked Rajapakse group backed by the imbeciles like intellectually deficit DJ, stinky mouth Baluwansa and forgery specialist Horapilla come to power.

As for Prabhakaran supporters, all I can say is that they are putting on a pedestal the worst enemy of the Tamil people, who led them down the path of destruction, much like Hitler was to the Germans.

    Native Vedda: ” Please find out from your tribe”. I have already found that out. My TRIBE is all LIVING BEINGS. In this “WHOLE”, the tribe called “HUMAN” has been invaded by a vicious circle (I call that circle a GANG) who have chosen the most lucrative and prosperous mode of making a living by HERDING that HUMAN BEING into varying and divergent subservient groups and constantly keep vigil to DRIVE them in a DIRECTION of their (that GANGS”) choice. In doing so they “cooperate”; form into “alliances”; engage in “tactical” moves – all that on the universality of “You scratch my back and I will scratch your back”. Do I have to name the composition of this VICIOUS CIRCLE or the GANGS? I don’t think so. Just look around, you will see them among your tribe operating on 7 – 24 cycle.

    In UK, LTTE is proscribed as a terrorist organization. But what is happening does not reflect that LTTE is a banned organization. LTTE supporters are free to carry LTTE flags, hold pro-LTTE rallies and scream Our Nation Tamil Eelam – Our Leader Prabakaran. We are a little puzzled why a banned terrorist movement get police protection for these rallies. Why should the British Government molly-cuddle LTTE terrorists and their supporters? Simple answer is British are hypocrites. Will they allow IS supporters to do the kind of things that LTTE supporters are allowed to do. Definitely, not. When British left Ceylon, they left a ‘Ethnic Time Bomb’ and as they expected it exploded. Briton has not abandoned their infamous ‘Divide and Rule’ policy. That is the reason why British Government allowed LTTE to collect funds and Balasingham to operate in UK. Adele Balasingham who put cyanide capsules in the necks of suicide bombers is living happily in UK.

    Most Sinhalese deny or refuse to acknowledge, that according to the UN and global human rights groups, more than forty thousand (40,000) Tamil civilians were massacred during the latter part of the war; after the SL government evicted all international aid workers, UN staffers and journalists from the war zone.

    To conduct a war without witness!

    In the name of Sinhala Buddhist sovereignty and territorial integrity of the combined Tamil and Sinhala land, handed over to them by the British in 1948.

    The LTTE began their armed campaign and killings, only in the early 1980s. Sinhala Buddhist, conducted SL state sponsered massacres starting in 1958. Then 1977, 1981 and 1983.

    The first terrorist murder in Sri Lanka, was committed by a Sinhala Buddhist monk in 1959 – Mr.SWRD who nurtured them, was the victim.

    Please have a look at these websites for relevant articles:

      Susan Somalingam,

      It is absurd to acknowledge that more than 40,000 Tamils were killed during the final few days. There is no possibility to Sri Lankan army to massacre 40,000 Tamil civilians within couple of days using any kind of conventional weaponry.

      Further more don’t think that there were no foreign intelligence people working in Sri Lanka during those fateful days. Don’t think that there are no satellite images showing what really happened during those last days.

      Sri Lanka Army cannot hide the fact that they killed 40,000 civilians in broad day light without leaving evidence for the crime. But as of now no one could bring forth any evidence for the killing of 40,000 Tamil civilians apart from bogus eye witness testimonies from people whose identities are also hidden from verifying.

          How would I know. What really matters is to find a way to stop future killing of innocent people. That is why both Sinhalese and Tamil community must work together rather than dig up graves. Nothing will come out from this witch hunt except for mutual hatred for one another.

            Absolute rubbish. To stop future killings by the Sinhalese or Tamils, we need accountability. The Tamils in the Vanni told all the details about the massacres to other Tamils and international experts, during the 2 years after the war. Most Sinhalese know the truth about Tamil civilian massacres – they don’t give a damn, and some of them are very happy.
            Your military officers forced Tamils to pose for propaganda photos after the war ended, and even now.
            Reconciliation is far too late. It will never happen. The Tamils in the Colombo area, are mainly concerned about their economic well being. They don’t dare to speak up for the Tamils in the North and East. After the next anti Tamil riots in Colombo, in a few years time, the Colombo Tamils will immediate stop their pretense of normality.
            As soon as the Rajapaksa war criminals come back into power, they will organize riots against the muslims, and then Tamils.

        You are so used to lying when generating propaganda for the Sinhala Buddhist military.
        I wrote: more than 40,000 Tamil civilians were massacred during the **latter part of the war**. You twist it to: **during the final few days**. These are estimates by numerous UN and international experts.
        Only because they don’t want all the details to be discovered by the world, most Sinhalese and all their leaders virulently opposed international investigations! If it was the LTTE which killed more Tamil civilians, the Sinhalese would have immediately allowed an international investigation!
        Because the western countries knew through their intelligence agencies, the foreign ministers of UK visited your wretched mass murderers and war criminals, Mahinda and Gota, about 2 months before the war ended; to plead for the safety of the civilians. Whereas your Sinhala military and people were overjoyed that the Tamil population in the North was being reduced, by the thousands of killings every week.
        After the war ended, no one except your Sinhala military was allowed anywhere near the killing fields. While your murderous troop were destroying evidence and dead bodies using acid and incinerators. Tamils and foreigners are still not allowed any where close to some of the killing fields.

          So you are saying that 40,000 civilians died nor during the final few days but during the latter part of the war. Then you should understand that up until the final few days those civilians were under LTTE’s custody.

          It is irrelevant who killed who we are not going to support an international investigation because we Sri Lankans are capable of handing out justice our self. Furthermore, no matter what LTTE is our own people. No one needs to punish their wrong doings except for ourselves.

          Mahinda and Gota had fulfilled their promise by rescuing more than 300,000 civilians trapped as a human shield by the LTTE. No one rejoiced nor wanted to see innocent civilians dies except for the LTTE terrorist. If you think Sinhalese waited for the destruction of Tamils then their is something seriously wrong with your self.

            The Tamil civilians were in the LTTE controlled areas from January to May 2009.
            The LTTE committed the war crime of not allowing some of them who wanted to leave, to do so. But, the ICRC and UN gave the exact coordinates of hospitals and “safe zones” to the SL Military. Those locations were repeatedly shelled and bombed by the SL military.
            The “safe zones” were specified by Gota, in order to make the civilians go to those locations, and then bomb and shell them. All these war crimes have been documented by the UN and global Human Rights groups.
            If it is irrelevant, who killed who, why does Sri Lanka have a part bogus court system? Any murderer can tell a judge, that it is irrelavant who killed who.
            You are a liar and propagandist for the genocidal SL state and military.
            Others: Please read this report by Amnesty International, published on June 11, 2009
            Sri Lanka: Twenty years of make-believe. Sri Lanka’s commissions of inquiry.
            The LTTE members and supporters are not your own people! They still want a separate Tamil state.
            Whereas, Sinhalese like you, demand the right to rule the Tamils. You also demand, that the Tamils should not aspire to rule themselves.
            Others: Please Google the following phrase: J.R.Jayawardene starve the Tamils Sangam.org
            Next repeat same phrase, ending with: Tamilnation
            J.R. correctly said: “The more you put pressure in the north, the happier the Sinhala people will be here. Really, if I starve the Tamils out, the Sinhala people will be happy.”
            J.R. stated this in an interview with Ian Ward, of the London Daily Telegraph, just two weeks before his government launched the July 1983 Holocaust.

    Please type the term “Brigadier Priyanka Fernando” in YouTube. You will find that all the Sri Lankan media, especially Sinhala language, is full of patriotic Sinhala Buddhist praise for their Brigadier. Nearly all the Sinhala public who are interviewed on camera, state that they defend him from any accusation or crime, because he is their war hero, who defended the Sinhala Buddhist land.

    War crimes committed by both the Sinhala military and the LTTE, have been documented by the UN and international Human Rights groups.

    Most Sinhalese in SL know that their war heroes murdered and raped large numbers of civilians and bombed and shelled hospitals and civilians. In their state of denial, they suppress any thoughts and justify those war crimes.

    Most Sinhalese believe that because there are some Sinhala military personnel who did not rape and shell Tamil civilians, the Tamils should focus only on that, and be overjoyed; and that the Tamils should not be unpatriotic to mention or remember war crimes and near genocide.

    Most Sinhalese also have the fantasy that the Tamil civilians in the Vanni were overjoyed and grateful for being “rescued” by the Sinhala military. Most Sinhalese refuse to acknowledge the suffering of more than ten thousand Tamil families, over their family members who were murdered after surrendering to the SL military. And the land grab, Sinhala colonization and military occupation of private Tamil property, in order to impoverish the Tamils in their own land.

    All Sinhala political parties are vying with each other, to glorify this brigadier!

    Well, the major international powers, India and the SL state have completely failed to achieve reconciliation in Sri Lanka!

It is clear to all themselves and any visitor to those areas what Prabhakaran did to them., their families, assets and their children, in return for scores of propped up cemeteries where the macabre ceremoinies were conducted by VP and his fake generals. Is it not your own people that is causing hatred and destruction to fellow tamils: the story of the raping of Vidhya, and sword wielding tamil mcycle gangs are cases in point.

        You are so used to lying during your propaganda work for the Sinhala buddhist military. Whey were the Tamils, Burghers and many Sinhala Christians chased away from the Ceylon military starting from SWRD’s time? You are delusional to spread the lie that Tamils in the North and East love this 99% Sinhala, terrorist military.
        I wrote: “Most Sinhalese believe that because there are some Sinhala military personnel who did not rape and shell Tamil civilians… “
        I did not specify the exact or approximate number of rapes. Independent and international experts were not allowed to investigate. You are lying in order to fool more of the decent Sinhalese.
        When Dr.Brian Senewiratne conducted investigations into the rape of some Tamil men and women, most of the Sinhalese in SL, were violently angry! Because he told the truth. He sent his results to the UN and international experts who conducted further investigations, which angered the Sinhala racists even more!
        You quote the number, “5 million Tamils”. Absolute rubbish and lies. You cannot help it, because you are a full time propaganda and lies writer for the Sinhala Buddhist military.
        You are just shedding crocodile tears for one Tamil girl Vidhya. So many other Tamils were killed in Jaffna after the war, by gangs trained and controlled by your Sinhala Buddhist military.
        A fair number of your Sinhala Buddhist soldiers are terrorists. Terrorist monuments have been built for them by your SL state. And they were given terrorist funerals and honors.

      Sinhalese should be settled in Jaffna and other cities in the North and the East in accordance with the ethnic ratio of the country. Tamils and Muslims in Colombo enjoy an unfair majority over Sinhalese. Sinhalese MPP should be elected from the North to represent Sinhalese there. Before Dutch brought down Vellalas from Tamil Nadu to cultivate tobacco, the majority who lived in the North were Sinhalese farmers. Time to correct the blunders of white invaders.

        Champa the stupid bigot, Srilanka was part of Kumari Kandam the homeland of Tamils prior to sea upheaval 10,000 years ago. NASA and Indian institute of oceanology have confirmed the presence of civilisation lying submerged under the sea between Srilanka and Tamil Nadu. This is corroborated by recent genetic studies and discovery of 10,000 year old civilisation in Settikulam. Therefore any Tamil in the world has the right to make Srilanka their home which is their ancestral property. Therefore using your same logic, landless Tamils in Tamil Nadu should be settled in Srilanka accordance with the ethnic ratio of the world. In Srilanka Sinhalese enjoy an unfair majority over Tamils. Before Kallathoni Vijaya and his gang landed in Srilanka, the people who lived in Srilanka were all Tamils. Before Portuguese brought down from Tamil Nadu Salagamas to cultivate cinnamon and catholic Karawes to fish, Sinhala were a minority.

        The Tamils settled down in Colombo, during British times, because the British did not develop the North and East, and create the types and numbers of jobs as in Colombo.
        Those Tamils worked and earned, and purchased property using their earnings. Unlike the Sinhala Buddhist thugs who were forcibly settled in Tamil areas after 1948. Those thugs were given money and houses by your Sinhala Buddhist state. The Tamils in those areas were chased away. Tamil village names were replaced by Sinhala names!

      As a matter of fact Karuna, Pillayan and KP have come out of that ideology and embraced communal unity by participating in democracy. This should be embraced by other Tamil political entities

        Shenali, Tamils never demanded separation, but restoration of the lost sovereignty taken from them by Portuguese, not returned by British when they left and denied by Sinhalese after that. If you go thorough carefully, Tamils gave the mandate to regain this sovereignty by Vaddukoddai resolution to TULF. Since TULF could not proceed peacefully by negotiations with Sinhalese cheating them, Prabaharan stepped in and usurped this mission, never listened to advice or wishes of Tamils, messed it up and finally left Tamils is this position. Thus LTTE was never given any mandate by Tamils to do anything on behalf of them. You are wrong when you say Tamil political entities other than whom you have mentioned have not come out of the ideology and embraced communal unity. TNA the main representatives of Tamils have clearly stated that they have abandoned demand for a separate state and negotiate for a solution of autonomy within a united Srilanka. For six years MR did nothing even when India and US were requesting him to move forward. Now for the last three years MS/RW have been dilly dallying about matters for reconciliation and restorative justice, having produced a draft constitution which is nothing but establishing entrenched Sinhala mind set. It is now becoming clear that it is Sinhalese who are intransigent about fair solution.

        Shenali,
        Tamils have every right to support a separate Tamil State. Which does not imply that they support the LTTE.
        Karuna and Pillaiyan are thugs and criminals used for the Sinhala Buddhist state’s dirty work: murders and abductions. Participating in democracy my foot!
        When all Tamil leaders participated in Ceylon’s democracy until 1983, what did your Sinhala Buddhist leaders and military do to them?
        During the peaceful protest outside the Ceylon Parliament by Tamil MPs in 1956, to protest the Sinhala Only act, they were assaulted by Sinhala government sponsored thugs. The Sinhala Buddhist Prime Minister mocked them when they returned to parliament in bandages. He mocked: “Ha Ha, the wounds of war!” He was soon murdered by a Sinhala Buddhist terrorist.
        You are delusional to order Tamil MPs to now “participate” in Sinhala Buddhist pseudo democracy and thuggery. Most of them are doing so, since they have no other option.

      You missed out Sampandan who recognized LTTE as the sole representative of Tamil community until 18 May 2009.

        Eagle Eye, Prabaharan was threatening people to toe his line and Sambanthan had no alternative. When brave Sinhalese like you were hiding under the bed when name of LTTE is mentioned, how can you expect helpless Sambanthan to do otherwise.

    Surely one cannot expect Sambandan to express views like those of State Minister of Defense Ruwan Wijewardena and by the Minister of Plantation Industries Navin Dissanayake.
    Ruwan praised Brig. Fernando for making the said gesture, claiming that ‘it was the right signal to pro-LTTE diaspora.’
    Navin has written to two MPs Joan Ryan and Siobhain Ann McDonagh for writing about the incident to Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson. Navin condemned the two MPs for ‘supporting front organizations for the LTTE’.
    Paul Scully MP also followed with a letter to Boris.
    Paul (Conservative) is the Chair of All Party Parliamentary Group for Tamils and Joan and Ann (both Labour) are Vice Chair and Senior Vice Chair.

    Can we have the identity of the two Tamil thugs photographed trampling the Sri Lanka flag. Their names and addresses will be a bonus.

    Dear Sambanthan
    You silly old fart !

    At least in your twilight years repent and ask forgiveness from the Sri Lankan people and especially your Tamil brethren for being the vile and stupid politician who sucked up to the LTTE for his political survival whilst sacrificing innocent Tamil youth to the altar of Prabakaran and the LTTE.

    In order to gain petty political mileage you continue to espouse the ‘values’ of seperatism whilst wearing LTTE Y fronts under your vetti.

    Most of those demonstrating outside the embassy in London are LTTE members and sympathizers like you who have suddenly found that the world has moved on and they are still in their own time warp with no intention to move on in the spirit of reconciliation.

    I believe most of these ‘economic refugees’ that are a burden on the british tax payers are fearful that the new Britain after brexit May clean house and deport the whole bunch to Sri Lanka.

    TNA is not the representative of tamil population. It is not different to UNP, Sirisena Group and Mara Group in the South. Like the utterly corrupt politicians in the South these people does the same.

    Best example is the abuse of tax-free car permits by TNA MPs. I published the entire list which include almost all TNA MPs. Each cheat has defrauded over 33 millions of pubic funds.

    There is no issue that the gesture of the serviceman is inappropriate but the initial punishment meeted out to him is completely disproportionate.

    I see the word “illegal” being bandied around in respect of this gesture. Pray someone tell me which law book says taking your finger around your neck is legally interpreted as threatening to slit the necks of those in the street. The Brigadier could well say what he meant was Sinhalese must save their heads from these barbarians or some such thing.

      You are likely to present another interpretation of his gesture. Please find your own time and find the true meaning of his gesture.

      I thought it was the Sinhala/Buddhist version of fascist salute
      Or he was scratiching his b***s, which were stuck in his throat, were they his, is another matter.
      Hindians are coming lets finish this smug walk and hide behind women’s folks.
      Let the stupid LTTE confront the Hindians. ….. and we will claim glory, victory, ….

      Was he communicating with Gota’s Tamil boys among the protesters? Was he begging them to leave the Embassy as his wife was awaiting in the car, planned to go for romantic comedy/weepy and he is already late and is scared of her for losing his manhood, as she would not hesitate to cut off his b***s?

    In case British declared persona non grata on the said officer, SL must retaliate.

    If this is Sampanthar’s election campaign, it is too little and too late

    TNA was sitting in parliament on the opposition chair and nodding for everything UNP said during that time,
    North East has been dynamited by extremist parties on the TNA’s inaction. Apparently Tamils are not ready to accept Sumanthiran Two Provinces wide Rapist Army Camp as their political solution. If TNA is send home by Tamils, then IC only can help Tamils to achieve their freedom. It is a very precarious situation in North East by the repeated blunders of TNA for the last three years. About one year ago, even ICG had warned that without achieving rights restoration, by sitting idle in the parliament, TNA has earned Tamil people’s’ dissatisfaction.
