Female Principal Forced To Kneel Down Has To Weep For Maithripala To Ask Errant Chief Minister To Resign From Education Portfolio

It took more than a week for President Maithripala Sirisena, who is also the leader of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) to move on the Uva Province Chief Minister Chamara Dasanayake who abused in bad language and forced a female Principal to kneel because she refused to implement a request that violated established procedure.

In footage that’s gone viral since, the Principal of a Tamil school in the Uva Province, R Bhavani tearfully related how Dasanayake had abused her for refusing to comply with directives that violate standard procedure, sparking outrage from civil society activists as well as local politicians.

Calls for his removal went unheard and unacknowledged for more than a week and as things stand the abusive politician still remains as Chief Minister of the province.

Dasanayake refuted the charges against him and claimed that he had merely called her to his official residence to inquire into allegations of discrimination against children of other faiths.

He told the media at his office that it was absolutely a false allegation that he threatened and forced a principal of Tamil Girls’ Maha Vidyalaya, Badulla, to kneel down before him. He claimed that the Principal had merely ‘saluted him’ in traditional fashion just before she left.

Ms Bhavani, although later confirming the Chief Minister’s version, was clearly distressed by the incident, raising suspicion that fear of reprisal had compelled her to change her story.

Meanwhile UNP Badulla District MP Vadivel Suresh upon visiting the school told the media that it was wrong of the Chief Minister to make a woman visit his official residence. He added that abusing her in bad language and being racist was the second fault, the third being forcing her to kneel.

‘The fourth is threatening her and forcing her to lie to the media and the fifth is making it impossible for her to continue to work in her school,’ he said.

Ranjith Keerthi Tennekoon of Campaign for Free and Fair Elections (CaFFE) alleges that Secretary, Ministry of Education, Uva Province was complicit in twisting the narrative in the Chief Minister’s favor. He also alleges that journalists attached to the Provincial Council were held in a room and compelled to affirm this narrative and that relevant log entries had been removed.

Dasanayake has so far not indicated that he will resign as Chief Minister. Neither has President Sirisena, leader of the political party Dasanayake belongs to, stated that any disciplinary action would be taken against him.

    No citizen should be compelled/threatened to kneel before another, even if the latter is the most important in political, religious or civil hierarchy.
    This never happens in a civilised country.

    In Sri Lanka, uncivilised persons attain political power by bribery and other nefarious means, and then believe that they are like ‘gods’.

    Would the president had tolerated this if the teacher had been a relative of his – surely not.

      This is not the first time that a degrading act has been committed by a Politician, Military Personnel or Police Officer. The problem is power and authority are given to people without accountability. We have recorded crimes of torture, rape and murder of detainees, abuse of teachers, doctors etc. What has any of the governments done to hold people accountable?

      Reading what happened at Kataragama the first thing that came to my mind was Karma is a Bitch. When this same thing happened to minorities very few had a issue with it. They suffered in silence now its happening to the majority.

      This is the type of world the Govigama Elite criminals created for us to enjoy. Just take a peep out the window and see if any Govi leader coming out in solidarity with the people??? Maithripala comes out to rescue the criminal and not to save the common man an woman who foolishly are still voting for these bastards with this fake election propcess. Election is part of the Govi game to keep us dumb forever. At the end of the day, it will be a Criminal Govigama bastard who will be our so called President or the PM.

          See Burt, the world for the last 250 odd years, been criminally manipulated by the tricksters …. the Jews. If you know how these bastards, firstly came as traders and then became the invaders, then colonialists and now the financiers of terrorism, looting, human trafficking, lendiing money on interest, evil banking, evil corporations and the worst is the puppeteering of foreign and their own governments through the Political Elites with systems already put in place by them to control the human population according to their Zionist agenda. In Sri Lanka, we have the same thing is functioning under leadership of Govigama Mafia with its Media, Finance, Military, Religious Mafia gangs and virtually a total evil structure is functioning under their flagship. This is the reason why we, the people are not getting a better life as the system is keeping everyone of us dumb and blind, not getting an opportunity to rescue this country of ours. The day we say enough to these criminals we will see true human spirited people taking over the reign and make all of us happy and keep us all united as one nation.

      This is another human rights abuse against the Tamils and this time the victim is a Tamil lady. This should be taken up to the UNHRC in Geneva. See how the Sinhala-Buddhist Chief minister is treating the Tamils. This kind of thing always happen only to Tamils in Sri Lanka. These things should be exposed to the whole world, we should take every opportunity to show the world how the Tamils are undergoing HR abuse by the Sinhala-Buddhists.

      I think it is the previous govt to be blamed on this too. They introduced the culture to the people.
      Had they imposed harder laws at the time, one teacher was then made kneel down before one of the rascal brother of Rajapakshe, he THE BUGGER ballige putha Rajapakshe just ignored the issue.
      Now it has become the culture in this country. Ballieg putha Rajapakshes have abused the country and puunankku eating masses to the core.
      We know here too, there are men like Edwin that would lick the balls of Rajapakshes even if they would not permit him to do the learnt job., these men should all be vanished from our mother lanka if we at all to see it BEYOND.
      Now I am bit nervous been ready to take the plane to see my relatives back in home country.
      I am sure, i will get allergic not being able to see things entagled down there.
      To me, masses in that part of the world are just fools or let any rascals to manipulte them easily.
      Had My3 been that strict at the begining by putting Ballige putha Rajapakshes in jails, things would have become much nicer by today.
      I know what we have been talking today. They talk about BOND but how can anyone compare it with the mountains of crimes deliberately made by Raja : In a way, CB issue should have been investigated, and then Rajapakshe s would not be burried under the carpet anymore. I can only breath my last once I see, Rajapkashe s are jailed for ever.

    Tamils are responsible for this mayhem. what has happened is earlier, One Regional director for education was responsible for looking after these issues. Tamils wanted it and appointed a Politician for that after the 13th amendment. they are uneducated thugs in this case who wants to be important people. A reasonable and a leader like president would fire this thug.

    All the government departments are pested with the politicians’ racketeering and influences.

    Sampanthar’s friend Racist White Flag Murders accused, New King will arrest only Tamil Bhavani for not complying to Chamara Dasanayake and lying, but not the real thug.

    CB is place there even the common fly doesn’t fly inside without political influence on it. The New King Crook is playing big drama as arresting Mahendran and getting the Singapore PM’s help for that.

    Tamils’ side must quickly bring it to the attention of Singapore PM about the games New King play. Unless he fires Chamara Dissanayake , PM should be advised not to help racist New King.

    There are news that Old Brother Prince went to USA because Crook New King advised him to go, to saved him being arrested by UNP. So the Singapore PM should be given complete list of UNP and New King’s racketeering. Mahendran need not be helped. But Mahendran can be saved if that is needed to save Bavani.

    Dear RTF,


    You’ve asked a very relevant question, but none of us knows the answer, or ever will know the answer!

    “Students” are those children born something like 6 year previously, and are supposed to have been born with “equal opportunity” to fashion out a future for themselves. Many people unthinkingly say that they are born “equal”. They are not. Some have congenital problems, others are brought up in different ways by parents, so that even when they enter school, they are NOT the same.

    Irrespective of WHAT the children are at age six, most parents want the best school in the world for their children, and want it FREE. How can this wish be satisfied?

    Right now, the government has turned the slogan, “The closest school is the best school” in to policy for administering the “System” of Education that now prevails. The slogan represents the ideal, but obviously it is something that will never be realised. Even as we mouth it, we know it to be false.

    I heard this Badulla story a few days ago, then saw this particular report yesterday, in CT, where I regularly comment – as you well know RTF, since we have interacted. In fact, you responded positively to my request that you comment on my experience, then regretted it, since, as I seem to now recall, you thought I responded boorishly. With justification? Perhaps.

    In yesterday’s comment, I stated, “I won’t pretend to know all details”. Where I knew all details, I spoke with greater conviction. Let me now draw your attention to that earlier, Bandarawela, story. Nothing tangible has happened with respect to the outrageous situation that then prevailed in the school that I was born (sic) in. My father was a teacher there, and he later built a house in close proximity to it. So, I did start by attending the closest school. You saw the articles, RTF. Other readers wouldn’t have. Links cannot be given on CT at present owing to a technical glitch.

      Now, I THOUGHT that I had indicated how to get at the links that tell the recent story of S. Thomas’, Bandarawela. I obviously haven’t.

      The last time I met the Provincial Director of Education, Mr Piyadasa Ratnayake was in 2016, about June. I was visiting Badulla Central College, which is just next to the Provincial Education Office, Welagedera Road, Badulla. The Provincial Ministry of Education, where the Secretary to the Ministry is obviously not a man who’d ever been in Education.

      I’m afraid that I’ll have to complete this later, for reasons which will be explained.

        Sinhala man,

        Aren’t there district superintendents that take up these issues? Ok, maybe the educational structure is not set up properly in some districts. In that case, the minister should be in charge of the ultimate decision making. can’t understand why this principal sees the need to have absolute authority over her school. Answerable reasons must come out from both sides. Maybe she sees it as an impossible situation, e.g. students with learning or physical disabilities, of which she will have to handle without adequate funding. Maybe there is some niching up of communal schools that the minister wants to eradicate for reasons of democracy – if so, the principal should be sacked for playing politics.
        *
        Politics and slogans of schools can’t be that absolute. For reasons of democratic viability, there needs to be leeway for say 1-5% of mad-hatter parents who get mental disturbances from contemporary issues, to place their children wherever they want.

          This is how you messed up the catholic schools that had a good educational standard and discipline. Then came the interference and political pressure to take their students including Buddhist to catholic schools. Screwing the education and discipline.

          As long as the principle follows the set policies and principals he or she should have absolute power over the school not uneducated politicians.

            That’s because at the time, Catholic and other Christian schools were only for those with some money. Principal, answerable to the church, had absolute control. Most of the students migrated abroad after that. The whole reason to go to a Christian school was to propagate the colonial lifestyle, and if it couldn’t be done in the motherland, abroad was the next best place. Nowadays, in true democratic fashion, Buddhist students can attend any school they wish – even poor students from rough neighborhoods. Standards dropped as money disappeared from the country with the migrations.

            *
            For religious issues, democratic honor should always be upheld. This means that it is incumbent on parochial schools to take in 25% students of other faiths, so that democracy can be viable.
            *
            As per minister forcing principal to kneel, it is highly unlikely that he would have done so, after the media attention and removal of the other minister who supposedly forced a principal to kneel after she had punished and shamed his very own daughter for wearing a mini-skirt.

        Part 1

        As a solution to issues like ethnic problems, there has been devolution of power to the Provinces. This has led to duplication of functions in many Departments, including Education. Wasteful, but, perhaps necessary. Since few readers will have any clue as to what this means in practice, let me outline the system. Please point out any inaccuracies, since I don’t pretend to know all the details.

        The Education Minister of the Provincial administration is often the Chief Minister. He has a Secretary, and has a good deal of say in all Provincial Schools.

        A few schools were designated “National Schools” about thirty years ago. Those schools come directly under the “Line Ministry” in Isurupaya. Something like the Peter Principle operates, and some of these schools are not now among the most important. It’s a clumsy system; certain common sense decisions cannot be made at Provincial Level.

        The Professional set up comes under the Provincial Director of Education, who has received most of his knowledge and authority from the “Line Ministry” in Isurupaya, Battaramulla, where the Minoster is Akila Viraj Kariyawasam. The Province is divided in to 7 Zones, four in the Badulla District, three in the Moneragala District. Teacher files, payments etc are done at Zonal Level, but there are small District Offices looking in to aspects of actual teaching.

        The simple explanation for a degree of chaos is the fact that owing to our civil war many important aspects of lives have been put on the back burner.

        In this instance, all the criticisms have been levelled against The Chief Minister and his Secretary, who are NOT Education Professionals.

        The Provincial Director and those manning the offices described above ARE Educationists. If they were to be taken more seriously the problems would be fewer.

        A good deal of nostalgia for the way the “Catholic Fathers” ran their
        schools. Remember, however, that many schools were also well-run as Buddhist schools. You can’t turn the clock back. There’s a good deal to be said for objective, secular education, but we’re wandering from the subject.

          Sinhala-Man,

          Chief minister was exercising democratic principles, and not educational conventions. Educational issues are about e.g. administering screening for students with language development and learning delays, and how assessment are to be performed. That is where the principal will need to have control of, via educational department regulations. For reasons of democracy and proper function of a stable nation, 25% of students need to be of other faiths in any parochial school. And that is the chief ministers purview.
          *
          Catholic fathers ran the schools in those days with mass canings. Buddhist schools probably decided to follow the same fashion. Nowadays , it is all about democracy and acceptance of all faiths and social-levels. And certainly no premeditated torture. Pope also subscribes to the new order.

      This article has appeared on the 21st of January, so I can make comments until the 31st Jan 2018.

      Please pardon me for not putting all the comments on together on one day. I’ve been very busy doing lots of other things, which also cried for attention.

      However, because I’m one of the very few readers of Colombo Telegraph who has had experience working in village schools I will explain the set up. Instead of signing today’s note as “Sinhala_Man” let me give you my real name. Constructive criticism of what I say will always be welcome.

      I also expect a good deal of hostile criticism. I’m not a masochist who craves to be at the receiving end of abuse at the hands of the ignorant, the misinformed and the evil, but I also consider all such inflictions to be occupational hazards.

        I just haven’t had the time to do the necessary checking and then inserting what I know to be facts. Most people, including Shyamon Jayasinghe, have given their personal reactions, without REALLY knowing the facts.

        Perhaps, I could give you my researched comments a few days later in response to Shyamon’s comment. In the meanwhile, I’d like to give my personal reactions and views – which concur with most of those already given in comments posted by others.

        I think of this Chief Minister as an uncouth, uneducated oaf. He ought to be severely dealt with. The poor Principal is obviously trying not to make enemies who develop deadly hatred of her. When such hatred develops, the guy who hates is often capable of forgetting all rational restraints and acting with uncontrollable hatred. In other words, all deterrents such as punishment could be forgotten, and the guy (in this case the Chief Minister) could forget the risk of punishment, and act recklessly, even going so far as to murder the Principal.

        If that were to happen, the members of the public who are now so outraged, would be even angrier for a week or two – and then forget her for ever. So, if she backtracks, it is understandable.


        Summarising: The Chief Minoster is evil, but we must sympathise with the Principal.

    This is a ridiculous action by a responsible chief minister to a principal of a school. This is a simple example of how politician’s atrocities towards the public officers. They seem to practice jungle laws in their electorates. Principals are given certain guidelines by the department when selecting students for school admission. Principals are punished if they didn’t follow the guidelines. Then what is the use of having rule of law?

    Idiot AG, who broke his nose himself by suggesting that the EP has 6 years term under the 19A, now has said that arresting Mahendran is easy as any tourist come to Lanakwe and do criminal things are also being arrested by Lankawe Rapist Police.

    Isn’t it suggesting that Lanakwe probably thinking that bringing back Mahendram is not possible. He was in an employment contract with a institution which functioned under PM and FM.

      Here we go:
      Ar…. holes are cheap today
      Cheaper than yesterday
      Small boys for half a crown
      Standing up, or lying down
      I saw him tenderly
      Up on the balcony…

      “I think politicians are cheap. PRsident should fire this CM.”

      You are right the president should fire him and then appoint him as the Governor of Uva province.

    Many in Sri Lanka today blame the President for not having taken meaningful action against bastard politicians. As a result most of them who are uneducated, like this Chief Minister, have taken the maximum advantage. They are with the President’s team and their only job is to criticize the UNP and MR.
    Do you remember the notorious politician who forced a teacher in Anamaduwa to kneel down before him? That bastard is President Sirisena’s SLFP organizer in that electorate and President Sirisena himself gave the appointment letter to him.
    How can we expect anything good from this President?

    president has asked the police to probe this incident.First thing they have done is to take the woman for a checkup of her mental status and then try to take her to meet the Chief Minister who will then do the probe into her other parts now that the checking of her mental part is over.

    This teacher also should bear part of the fault. Why she was that CRUEL and did not think about that Child. Does she think, that the parents wanted a good school for that child was wrong ?.I think the CM – education minister was an IDIOT. Yet the Teacher is TOO ARROGANT and is a CRUEL woman.

      how can she flout the rules that are laid down by the dept of education just because a parent is sent by the CM.She is in a dilemma isn’t she?Is she to follow the rules laid down by her boss or by the CM.probably she could have called her boss and asked what should she do and passed the buck upwards.That is probably the way to work in srilanka if you don’t want a lot of trouble at your workplace.Unfortunately that is why we are a developing nation and never will become a developed one unless the culture is changed.I know for a fact that in the developed world if a minister had sent a letter like that he would have been roasted in the press and has to resign,let alone asking the person to whom he sent the letter to kneel in front of him,He would have been probably sent to prison for assault for sure.

      I don’t think she was cruel but a little foolish because you can’t change the culture.

      We will never become a developed country because of our culture.You have to take a battering ram and smash the culture or get smashed in the process.That is what i would have done if i had sira’s job and most probably got bumped off in the process.

    Watch the Australia Day Celebrations in Canberra! How all former Nationalities are living together in Harmony!
    Why must SL Politicians try to divide Sri Lankans? For their own Selfish Ends or for their Political Parties’ Survival?
