Duplicity Of Northern Resettlement – Is The Hate Campaign Back?

By Hilmy Ahamed

The Head of Bodu Bala Sena, Venerable Galagoda Atte Gnanasara Thero, in a statement after meeting with President Sirisena admitted that the previous government of President Mahinda Rajapaksa colonized the North with alien Sinhalese. He claimed that 4500 Sinhala families who were settled in Bogas wewa during the time of the previous government are leaving the colonized area and going back to their original homes. The reason for their abandonment may be linked to their security concerns. Ven. Gnanasara Thero also claims that these lands were cleared for settlement of Sinhalese by the tri-forces, implying that the armed forces were used to colonize large areas in the Northern province. In addition to the 4500 families settled in Bogas wewa, there are many others who have been granted land and other support in Veratenna, Namalgama, Senaleenigama and Nandamitragama. People of this area insist that all these Sinhala migrants who were brought to the North are from Hambantota and Suriyawewa, from the former President, Mahinda Rajapaksa’s district.

Ven. Gnanasara Thero also revealed that President Maithripala Sirisena had directed the Commander of the army to provide security to the new settlers of Bogas Wewa. Did the armed forces clear virgin forestland to colonize this area with Sinhalese, or did these lands belong to people who have been living there for generations?

President Sirisena, an avid environmental protectionist, claimed that Muslim IDPs returning to their own lands after 20 years from refugee camps have cleared jungles and encroached forest reservations. How can the President encourage colonization and settlement of ‘alien’ Sinhala migrants in the North when he has claimed that the Muslim IDPs who were forcibly evicted from their homes by the fascist LTTE and were compelled to live in refugee camps for over 20 years cannot return to their own land due to the Government’s controversial declaration of forest reservations in 2012. This declaration was made as a knee jerk reaction prior to the Northern Provincial Council (NPC) elections to deprive the NPC of its land rights. Under this declaration, large extents of Muslim owned lands too were brought under the forest ordinance, as there was some forest growth during the 20-year displacement of the Muslims. Yet, it was their private land where they lived and cultivated prior to their eviction. The LTTE and the armed forces did not allow the Muslims to return to their homes and clear the shrub which had grown over their land during the war. How can the declaration of these lands as forests be justified because it was overgrown with shrub in their absence due to their forced eviction from their homes, and their subsequent inability to return during the war?

The former administration of President Mahinda Rajapaksa is also accused of amending the Forest Ordinance and declaring large extents of lands in the Northern province as forest reserves through Global Positioning System (GPS) Mapping even without consulting the Divisional Secretaries of the area. This was believed to be a deliberate attempt to deprive the Northern Provincial Council (which the Mahinda Rajapaksa government knew would lose to the TNA) the extensive land powers which are vested to them in the Provincial Councils. A case in point is the Muslims who had lived in Musali South not being allowed to return to their lands, as their lands were not identified as private property in this mapping due to their displacement in various camps across the country.

The controversy of the Muslim IDP resettlement continues with Environmentalists claiming that it is an encroachment into Wilpattu, Buddhist extremists calling it colonization by a Muslim minister and the armed forces continue to hold large extents of land as high security zones. Some accuse the Government of keeping this land with the armed forces to settle more Sinhalese for strategic reasons.

Regrettably, the Environmentalists first claimed that these settlements of the returnees were in lands that belong to the Wilpattu National Reserve, and when it was proven beyond any reasonable doubt that Wilpattu was far away from these settlements, they changed it to imply that the Muslims have encroached into the Kal Aru reservation. The Kal Aru or Uppu (salt) river that flows through Muslim lands is only a mere 2 kilometers away from the sea. Hence there is no need to have reservations for the Kala Aru river in this area as the water flows unutilized in to the sea. This particular river is only a seasonal river and goes dry during most of the year. The water, when it passes Marichikatti village flows straight in to the sea. So why do they fuss so much about Kal Aru?

The returning Muslim IDPs have in their possession title deeds to their lands in Musali south that have been issued under the seal of King Edward the seventh of England in 1906. One of these deeds is for a property that is adjoining the Kal Aru river that is only a few meters away from the border of the Wilpattu National Wildlife Reserve. Yet, the current resettlement of the Musali Muslims that was approved by the former governments’ powerful Presidential Task Force (PTF) is 1.25 Kilometers away from the Wilpattu National Reserve.

The Bodu Bala Sena and other extremist Buddhists needed a platform for their foray in to politics. They used racism and hate to draw the attention of mainstream media. Their electoral rejection in August 2015 has left them as orphans and they now need a new platform to relaunch their campaign. Today, they are attempting to piggyback on President Maithripala Sirisena to return to the limelight, speaking about safeguarding the Sinhala race and the Sasanaya. He should remember that he is the President of all Sri Lankans, and that it is the right of all citizens to be treated equally and fairly. The President should be aware that little drops that came in as minority votes for him made the mighty ocean that toppled the giant Mahinda Rajapaksa from the Presidency. History should not repeat itself this time.

        Hilmi Ahmed, How dare you talk about Sinhalese “colonising” Bogas Wewa?

        This has been a Sinhala country until your ancestors landed at Beruwela (from Egypt and heaven knows from where else) to “trade” and our kings allowed them so stay. Now you dare to talk about “colonisation”!

        Which way is the thoppiya turning today?

          Hi joker ‘Anti Terror’ or Pro state terror who you may be you say ‘This has been a Sinhala country’ you are wrong BUDDHISM was brought to the Island by King Asoka’s emissaries Mahinda And Sungamitha that was about 200 years after Buddha’s demise. People who were living in this Island were Hindus Five Siva Temples were around the Island. One near the South was Thondeswaram is now in Sea after the Tsunami that occurred around First century after Christ. What have you got to say about Kathirgamam and sella- Kathirgamam. The Tamils were living and they were converted to Buddhism. Sinhala Language came into existence only in the 8th century, from Pali, Elu and Tamil. Present day Sinhala majority numerically are due to converted Tamils in Chilaw and Negambo, Portuguese bring the ‘Dalit groups’ from Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Andhra to work as Cinnamon peelers, Toddy Tappers, Chunam Boilers and as Dobie’s. All to cover their origin took the Portuguese Names such as Silva, Fernando parera,Pieris etc. etc. In the upcountry Nayakes from Tamil Nadu came to rule from 1739 till 1815, as a result the Senanayakes, Bandaranayke’s and others became Sinhala people of today. Don’t rely on Mahavamsa it is a Myth written by a frustrated Bikku Mahnama seeing that Hinduism was recovering in South India and North of the Island.

      Until the day is dawn.. the most aggressive man of the lanken nation (Ghanasara) be hung by his balls- it will not be easy any peace makers to get together. HIs body mass will not allow him to be hung, but it is worthy step if any law and order authorities could fulfil it.
      The manner he spoke publicly in ALuthagama creating a new wave of riots should punish the bugger teaching him a lession. This man betrayed us the srilnakens for no reasons – reason could well be him to have gone through a brutal CHILDHOOD – like the US shooters that killed dozens, of innocient people.

      Prasad, You are talking like an idiot. The sensible will know how the USA is destroying the Muslim economy by creating all these wars so that Israel would survive. Who is dying in all these countries that are in conflict. It is the Muslims and none other. Earlier, the british ruled its empire by creating divisions based on religion and race, while the FUC…ing Americans have mastered the art of intra religious conflict and all you stupidos believe that it is islamophobia. For your infomation, Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world and by 2030, the Muslims may be the majority race, because all you guys dont know how to do it. Send in your women and we will make sure that they breed.

        Fuz-eel, You are blaming the whole world for Muslim violence and murder caused by stupid, ignorant, arrogance, without looking in to the sheer stupidity of what you believe in as a group.

        The problem is in your religion based on myth and immorality. Murder is no answer and every one who does not believe in the same rubbish is not an “infidel”. They are decent thinking human beings who follow “non-violence” as preached in Hinduism, Biddhism and even Christianity.

        Convert, go away from this uncivilised beliefs.

        Fazeel Hussain, are you another Islamic Fascist? Islam originated in Saudi originated in the 8th century AD. It was spread around the world by war on innocent people of other lands, installing fear and by force raping women. Turkey was a Christian country, Iran a Zoroastrians, Afghanistan was a Buddhist country last traces of Buddhism was demolished in the Year 2000.A monumental destruction. India was a Hindu country Mogul destroyed many ancient temples, yet the resilient and dedicated Hindu Religion survived in India, Burma, Srilanka and the far east. In the 21st century again the Islamic Fanatics’ trying to lift their head as ISIS Fascists. Only answer for many more Donald Trump to come out and grow to control you Fanatical Fascists.

        mate you yourself have answered my issue .It is the fear we have due to the rapid propagation of your religion due to Shear multiplication of your numbers.I don’t think many have answers to that as others don’t actively over populate this already stretched planet.The answer lies with groups like “IS” and they are a blessing in disguise to this world.I don’t mind seeing many more of them as victims of their killer machines are mostly of their kind.

      What a disgrace that a president who was elected solely because the Muslim population voted for his is now betraying that community. He will pay for this, for sure. Gnanasara created the Aluthgama riots which sent Sri Lanka back to teh dark days of July 83. Now, he is sucking up to Maithripala and he is entertaining him. How disgraceful, but that is to be expected from a disgraceful human being. We all believed that he meant well when he joined the joint opposition, now it is clear. He has his brother swindling Sri Lanka Telecom, Wegapitiya of laughs gas to launder his money and the Daughter is doing a Namal by taking all government advertising. The recent paddy deal brought in billions to his rice trading brother and Dudley, the other brother is taking over all the properties in Nuwara Eliya, Kandy, Dambulla and Colombo. He has his eyes set on Galle too, So, it is time that we stand together, and send this Sirisena to honour his promises or impeach him so that a UNP government can take us forward.

      Its time that Justice prevailed and this stupid Gnanasara who is a disgrace to the Buddhist clergy should be locked up for good. He is a drunkard, womanizer, child abuser, and a total fraud. The law needs to catch up, and FCID could easily track down his huge remittences from Israel, India, USA and Norway.

      The answers to the above questions are simple. Preferential treatment of one ethnic or religions group over the other, generally called discrimination, and sometime called religious differentiation or racial differentiation.

      It is also called DOUBLE STANDARDS.

      The Sinhala “Buddhist” Rajapaksa State took preference to transplant settlers from Hambantota in preference to those IDPs who were displaced in their Land, both Tamils and Muslims, IDPs.

      How many acres were cleared by the Mattala White Epephant Fiasco.Compare that to the Wilpattu Muslim IDPs. Whey were they not settled in the original Villages where they were chased from by the Ethnic Cleansing by the LTTE Tamils, a War Crime.

The expulsion of the Muslims and other nations from the Northern province was an act of ethnic cleansing carried out by the Tamil militant Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) organization in October 1990. In order to achieve their goal of creating a mono ethnic Tamil state in the North Sri Lanka, the LTTE forcibly expelled the 72,000 strong Muslim population from the Northern Province.

        Mattala did not necessitate clearing large tracts of a protected nature reserve. Stop being an apologist to Islamist elements who care nothing about nature other than procreation.

        Mattala is abutting a bird park and the worry was that it would interfere with the migratory path of birds. The same group now representing the Wilpattu crisis did raise these concerns during the Mattala issue, to their credit. However, they grossly underestimated the ability of these birds to adapt without much hindrance from such non-entities as aircraft (much like other animals have adapted to changed conditions imposed by humans). In any case, there is no danger of any such occurrence at Mattala nowadays!

          “Mattala did not necessitate clearing large tracts of a protected nature reserve. Stop being an apologist to Islamist elements who care nothing about nature other than procreation.”

          Birds are part of the problem. The other part is the elephant and leopard habitats and the environmental destruction.

          Mattala was an environmental and economic disaster, done solely for the Ego of Mahinda Rajapaksa.

          The Muslim and Tamil IDPs, immediately should have been sent to their original villages, where they were case from, and rehabilitated. They would have been happy and very grateful, instead of clearing pristine jungles.

          However, that was not in the plan, because of Double Standards. What do they do? Clear more pristine jungle and transplant people from Hambantota.

          Gongpala, The southern development that was undertaken by your bloody dictator Mahinda with the Suriyawewa stadium, Mattala Airport, the harbour etc caused the biggest environmental damage ever in Sri Lanka far exceeding all the development of the 77 government. You idiotic blind will defend anything to bring that fuc..ing racist back in to power. Fortunately, the majority of Sinhala Buddhists are smarter than you.

        Hi Amarasiri! You quoted this “Published on Jun 1, 2013 The Evicted and Displaced North Muslims of Sri Lanka. The expulsion of the Muslims and other nations from the Northern province was an act of ethnic cleansing carried out by the Tamil militant Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) organization in October 1990. In order to achieve their goal of creating a mono ethnic Tamil state in the North Sri Lanka, the LTTE forcibly expelled the 72,000 strong Muslim population from the Northern Province”. Wrong interpretation, it was some Muslims as friends of Army was spying on LTT’s movements and reporting to earn from the Armed forces. It was a lucrative business run by few of that community. It was a collective punishment to banish them from North at the same time to safe guard their lives elsewhere. You can define this act as a humanitarian act or ethnic cleansing. In 2002 April Prabaharan had invited them back to their lands and houses. He had no agenda to make it as mono-ethnic or mono-religious country. Like what the Majority race in this Island wants to do! The delay, was an agenda planned by their own politicians and colluding with then government’s. The Rajapaske’s government kept them as IDP’S to get political mileage, controlling the Muslim Ministers. Muslim Politicians had always been in all governments. They held important ministries. What have they done to their IDP’S even during the post war period? No point blaming others without the truth behind every act or story. Fabrication and twisting the truth has become a pastime for many citizens of Srilanka.

          “The expulsion of the Muslims and other nations from the Northern province was an act of ethnic cleansing carried out by the Tamil militant Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) organization in October 1990.”

          Alternative Explanation by Yoga, and LTTE, Tamil Apologists.

          1. “Wrong interpretation, it was some Muslims as friends of Army was spying on LTT’s movements and reporting to earn from the Armed forces.”

          Agree. most likely.

          2. “It was a lucrative business run by few of that community.”

          Most likely, run by a few.

          3. “It was a collective punishment to banish them from North at the same time to safe guard their lives elsewhere. You can define this act as a humanitarian act or ethnic cleansing.”

          It was Ethnic Cleansing. Period. It is a War Crime.

          4. ” VP, He had no agenda to make it as mono-ethnic or mono-religious country.”

          Actions, speak more than words. Didn’t he order the killing of villages and people in the mosques.

          5. “The Rajapaske’s government kept them as IDP’S to get political mileage, controlling the Muslim Ministers.”-

          Agree on this, but only partially. It was not a Sinhala-Buddhist problem. It was a non-Sinhala Buddhist problem.

          Question” How many Tamils were there in the South? How many were spying for VP and LTTE? 1, 100, 10,000, 100,000?

          What percentage of Tamils in the South were spying for LTTE? 0.1%, 1%, 10 %?

          Did the Sri Lanka Sate Ethnically Cleanse the Tamils and send them all to the North to be under LTTE? No.

          This proves that the Sinhala are very much less racist than the Tamils, on a relative basis. However, we also know the degree of racism shown by Sinhala “Buddhists” bit not by Sinhala Christians, in general. We know it is not in the Buddhas Teachings.

          So, does the root of this Sinhala Racism go back to Mahawansa? Evidence pints that way.

          Where does the root of Tamil Racism go back to? Hindu Caste System?

We see people like you are still encouraging Mahinda they must be donkeys like you. isn’t a shame on this country. Mahinda and BBC are of the past- History.

      Until the law and order of the country – will do the job properly – these Ghanasaras or the like will roam abusing the nation for their advantages.

      Where on the earth monks became so aggressive as Ghansara has been.

      As one suggested here, I would never put the prefix -Ven to address tihs guy – he should rather be suffering from veneral diseases to behave this way. Today rulers have controlled his behaviours, which Rajapakshes allowed – neglecting the harm he had been promoting in Aluthgama and other areas. Once I saw the guy turned up in a hotel to threaten muslims. Have we ever seen the kind of scenes in the past ? Never… what matters when fellow muslims do their job activities within the prevailing law and order in the country, but going through their paranoid fears… trying to create further devisions as if the country is the own property only for us Sinhalaya…. if the kind of nature would have been the case in civlized Europe, the alleged men and women would have been investigted and punished accordingly.

      All I believe is rigorous law and order enforcement is the only way out to control this kind of thugs hidden behind saffron robes.

      There should be a code of behaviour to the monks..besides, they are all dependent on our DANA- Pinguththaraysa should finally learn to behave well, thanking our donations.
      These the kind of Sangayas are criminal by every nature. They should rather be kept away from human association protectng REAL BUDDHISM in the country.

    “Is the Hate Campaign back ?”

    Was the Hate Campaign ever resolved ? Did it ever go away ?
    No, certainly not, definitely not during the first year of Yahapalanaya.
    Hate speech and Hate acts arise from Hate thoughts.
    Hate thoughts can only be diffused and neutralized through a process of consultation and consensus between the two Communities, based on empathy and compassion – not on antipathy and egoism.
    The Muslim Community should take the initiative in commencing such a process with the other major Communities in the Island.
    Otherwise, they will find themselves always looking over their shoulders and asking themselves the question “Is the Hate Campaign back ?”

      There is no hate campaign, nor was there one against Muslims, for it to be “back.” Sri Lanka has been tolerant and blind to this nonsense for far too long. This pales into insignificance in comparison with the hate campaigns the Islamist nation with its false ideologies has waged against the world for the past 1000 years.

        Hey hot bag, Muslims are at the receiving end both by pseudo Muslims (Muslim impersonators like Daesh) and also the might of all the invaders combined such as the American, British, Russian and French forces using cowardly tactics dropping 10s of 1000s of bombs on the heads of innocent Muslims killing and maiming them, making them refugees and forcing them to flee their homes. They are using both remote controlled UAVs drones and fighter jets to crush IS but collateral damage is inconsequential according to them, and no count of civilian deaths (irrespective of Muslim or non-Muslim) has ever been recorded or maintained. What Daesh or IS does in return by killing a few hundreds of innocent civilians in Paris and in San Bernadino is nothing in comparison, in terms of civilian deaths these mighty fighting forces have unleashed in Syria, Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan – all Muslim countries

        You refer to an ‘Islamist nation’ fighting a war for thousands of years with a hate campaign? Which nation is this? What hate campaign are you referring to? In short, you have worn your knickers crossed and is in a tangle, and you better get it sorted out before you can walk straight again.

    Most of the criticisms and comment of this article is not related or relevant to the facts stated in this article. This article discusses the settlements during the Rajapakse regime and compares with what took place in Wilpattu. Please read the article carefully and if necessary comment on the facts of the case and not go on a tirade against the Muslims of the world and Sri Lanka. From what I read, it looks as if the environmentalist including the President is working on a racist agenda as others who were not the original citizens of the area had cleared the forest and settled and no one seems to question that.

    “Thero also claims that these lands were cleared for settlement of Sinhalese by the tri-forces, implying that the armed forces were used to colonize large areas in the Northern province. In addition to the 4500 families settled in Bogas wewa, there are many others who have been granted land and other support in Veratenna, Namalgama, Senaleenigama and Nandamitragama. People of this area insist that all these Sinhala migrants who were brought to the North are from Hambantota and Suriyawewa, from the former President, Mahinda Rajapaksa’s district.”

      Agree with Maali

      It appears that those who are writing nonsense in this column, are unable to meet the arguments put forward by Hilmy Ahamed.

    Gnanasara who called Prez as ‘rookadaya’ in all his recent media appearances, is now referring to him more respectfully as ‘ethuma’ after meeting up with him. His allegiances keep shifting with the breeze, or is he trying to portray an image of serious politicking. Now his newest public enemy number one is Ranil, who will never fall to his machinations.

    The way I see it, the Sinhalese people of Bogus weva in the North central regions of the country were settled there by the army probably against their will, when they were uprooted from their homes located in down south areas like Hambantota. This happened mainly due to land acquisition for new modernizing town development projects to please the Rajapakse clan. Now, after living resettled for some time, these good people are probably selling off their lands to Muslims and Tamils who are on the lookout to purchase homes closer to their traditional homelands in the North, and thus creating this exodus. It is quite plausible that they too are on the lookout for opportunities to return (or move away) and live closer to their culture and traditions and make a quick buck killing in the process. This I believe is the long and short of this new town settlement.

    In this whole process here comes Gnanasara tumbling in, with his racist agenda, to scream in filth and blow it beyond all proportions by distorting facts, showing these new owners as trespassers, invaders and even portray these as land grabs of criminal proportions. His finest moments will be when he opens up the gates of hatred and mistrust between the people by injecting the communal bug to create racial disharmony, whilst purporting a false sense of loyalty to his own creed. Even worse, may be deprive them the right to their homes at least until Court proceedings are over. Once again, the media circus will start rolling into town, just like the Wilpattu fan-fare which was made into a racial witch-hunt, in which poor Rishad Bathy was the whipping boy.

    People like Baludeen are the curse that has befallen on our beautiful land. The sooner we get rid of them, the better. This should be done even if a Sinhala prabaharan needs to be created. The loss to the country cannot be counted in the 30 year war. Imagine if another war is started with the Muslims. There are close to 2 billion Muslims around the world and what would be the future of Sri Lanka.All they need to do is stop recruiting Sri Lalan labour and all our women and men will be on the streets

    Balu ley deen,

    looking at your comments, it’s seems you lack the basic intelligence to understand what the author is trying to say, you’re preoccupied with your own little notion in small little brain, better you change your name to either Buru ley or gong harak ley deen, that will be me more suitable.

        You seem to be dying to eat a good Muslim Buriyanai. Let me know I will send you some, or even better, you can send you folk home to be and I will give them a lot more than Buriyani and you might be able to claim a better breed,

    President Sirisena will be playing with fire, if he encourages, or tolerates, these bigoted puppets, who are obviously dancing to the tune of some puppet masters, paying them to cause problems in our country.
    These scumbags have cause so much of trouble, inciting hatred, and attacking minorities. Anyone wanting to take advice from Buddhist Monks should do so from true, peaceful, Buddhist monks, who only want peace in our land, not saffron robed terrorists like the BBS, who spread lies and turn Sri Lankan against Sri Lankan.

    Sirisena should realize that Sri Lanka is multi religious, and that the minority should not be marginalized.
    Didn’t we learn a lesson from the years of bloodshed and war?

    Hilmy – why are you calling this thug “Venerable’? Don’t you know what it means or are you from another planet???

    This thug is anything but “venerable”, so you might do well to re-examine your text!

      Thesaurus, I totally agree with you. This gnanasara should be called VAL and not VEN Gnanasara. But Hilmy is a non-Buddhist and he probably respects the Saffron Robe. Many in the forum would have screamed if Hilmy did not address the bastard respectfully. We can say anything because no one can challange us.

    The blood bath that the BBS is trying to ignite will turn Sri Lanka in to another present day Syria. It would be the innocent people on booth sides that will have to sacrifice. The instigators would hide inside the egg shells and survive. Its time that President and Prime Minister calls a special cabinet meeting on this and order the immediate arrest of this blood thirsty Gnansara and his band of Fascists, otherwise Sri Lanka is doomed.

They are running teh campaign for MR. The front are two Buddhist priests from Kurunegala. They are just porns in this mess

    Why is my namesake Ranil letting Maithripala to continue with his stupid statments. Is he letting him dig his grave or is he not willing to save Sirisena
