First Death Is Reported In Sri Lanka Riots

Sri Lanka’s growing urban unrest claimed its first three lives last night. Three Muslims were killed as a result of shooting near Walipitiya Mosque. Riots started following the BBS Galagoda Atthe Gnanasara‘s inciteful and fear mongering speech yesterday in Aluthgama prior to the riots.

    Ok, the plan is working now. Muslim terrorist are being manufactured. Sinhalese Terrorism experts are delighted.

    The plan is most certainly working with the Moda hope that Modi will be entertained as well.

      Here comes the CHAOS promised by Lalith Weeratunge in Geneva – if a war crimes trial of the Rajapaksa regime gets under way!

      Also, the Daily Mirror which is a national joke and govt rag. ran as its headline story that the Police feared to take action against the mobs! What a joke this newspaper is!
      Who is responsible for the corruption in the Police? Any one at that rag newspaper know the meaning of investigative and RESPONSIBLE reporting? Now the police who victimize people have become the victims as the POGROM against the Muslim minority gets going!

      The Rajapaksa brothers must be held accountable for these deaths at the Hands of BBS thugs especially given that Gota is the Patron of BBS.

        Forget Sri Lanka, Modi please create three separate states for Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims guaranteed by India and the UN – Yugoslavia style. Problem will be solved.

        Sinhalese have proved in 66 years that they cannot live peacefully with anybody else.

          Rauf Hakeem and the Muslim politicians who collude with the Mahinda Jarapassa regime are as must to blame for this nightmare as is Gota the Goon and his BBS saffron Thugs.

          No more tourists from the Mid East in the Debacle of Asia. Jarapassa’s economy is slowly but surely crashing while the World Bank invents fantasies of economic growth on borrowed funds. WB and ADB with their Fetishsim of growth are huge culprits – funding Gota the Goon’s Military Business via UDA..

          WB and ADB will give funds to Military Dictators and then preach good governance!

        What is wrong? A ;policeman gave a ticket to a speeding driver and the Deputy Minister not only threatened him in filth, but also followed up attacking the Policeman’s car on a later day. The Police guys are worried about their own safety, not in the hands of mob, but by the Powerful People in the government.

    RE: First Death Is Reported In Sri Lanka Riots

    “Riots started following the BBS Galagoda Atthe Gnanasara‘s inciteful and fear mongering speech yesterday in Aluthgama prior to the riots.”

    Enough data to arrest and detain the BBS.

    Why is the the state does not take him and his goons into custody?

    Because of Complicity?

      Yes, you said it Amarasiri.

      BBS is the brainchild of Gotabhaya Rajapaksa. How could they take action against themselves.

    Now BBS/Military/Police all have blood in their hands many times more and for real.

    What is he going to do about his own creations BBS/Military/Police and blood and much more in his hands during the Last phase of war.

    Stand up Wake up Rise against these maniac.

      I can only sigh in sadness.

      How can we stand up when even Prabakaran failed. Is there anyone really who has the guts to stand up against this murderous regime.

      We can only stand and watch these horrible Sinhala butchers do what they always do. Kill, maim, rape and pillage.

    The NR government must go. This government is responsible for these two deaths and any others that follow . The Fashion Bug incident that was mishandled, while the law was blatantly subverted has led to these deaths. this government has crossed the rubicon and should be beyond redemption.

    Let us pray and mourn for the lives lost. Our sympathies must be with the bereaved families and our fellow citizens under seige.

      ‘NR government’. When did they come into power?

    • 4

      Dr RN,

      I doubt anyone in Sri Lanka or an overseas power could remove the MARA governement. A government full of mass murderers, rapists, thieves of public assets and drug peddlers.

      BBS is doing what their bosses tell them to do.

      We bereved the Tamil victims of genocide and now we have to mourn the Muslim victims of hate.

      What a horrendous race these Sinhalese are.

    Good to see good old Doc Narendran back in a forum like this. Finally he has recovered from the shell shock of defeat of the LTTE and along with the “Tamil Problem” and the chance for federalism.

    I am reproducing below what he wrote a long time ago, when LTTE was alive and kicking, when he wanted to divide Lanka under a Federal plan, with a view to obviously take the country to divide fully soon thereafter. Now he is crying for the Taliban and Jihadi’s who dominate the Moslem community in Lanka. Maybe he wants to find a way to Federalism through Moslems.

    My advice to him is, just go away. The Sinhalese will solve this problem also, and defeat Islamic terror. Losers like you are not wanted, even by the Tamils.

    Here’s Narendran in 2005…….

    Dear Sinhalese,
    I am addressing this letter to you – the Sinhala people, directly, because your leaders of the past did not and the present do not, have the capacity or intention to resolve the Sinhala-Tamil and the majority-minority problems in Sri Lanka. You are their
    excuse! I am writing this letter firstly as a human being, secondly as a Tamil and thirdly as a fellow Sri Lankan. I am addressing this letter to you as a
    people with a proud culture and heritage; a people who are compassionate and decent; a people who are largely Buddhist and practice a compassionate religion grounded in the principles of dhamma and karma. I am
    also addressing you as a people who are the closest to me as a Tamil, in appearance, culture and beliefs.

    I am a Tamil with roots in the north, who was born among Sinhalese, grew among Sinhalese, played with Sinhalese, was educated among and taught by Sinhalese,
    worked among Sinhalese, taught the Sinhalese, lived a large part of my life among Sinhalese and speaks the
    Sinhala language fairly well. My home is yet Sri Lanka
    and my family lives there, although I work abroad. I
    am proud of my Sri Lankan nationality and like to see
    Sri Lanka prosper. I have also suffered as a result
    of the Tamil militancy and its aftermath. I know that
    the Tamils have no alternative but to support the
    militancy and the LTTE because an acceptable political
    solution has not been offered to them yet. I also know
    that the LTTE in particular has committed acts of
    terror against innocent Sinhala and Muslim civilians,
    and fellow Tamils. I am also aware that the LTTE is
    cynically and violently manipulating the Tamils to
    achieve their ends. I also believe that the LTTE
    should reform and change their approach and thinking
    to accommodate current realities in the Tamil areas in
    particular and Sri Lanka and the world in general. I
    am no less a Tamil on account of these.

    I am proud of my rich mother tongue-Tamil, my
    heritage as a Tamil, my cultural identity as a
    Tamil-Hindu and my mixed Hindu-Christian parentage. I
    yet feel most at home in Jaffna, my land and that of
    my ancestors, although I have been fortunate to have
    had the opportunity to travel widely both within Sri
    Lanka and other countries, and live in the west and
    the Middle East. I firmly believe that the Tamils
    have been mistreated in independent Sri Lanka and by
    design made to suffer at the hands of the Sinhala
    rabble. I know that the Sri Lankan armed forces have
    committed serious acts of violence and terror against
    innocent Tamil civilians. I also believe that the
    responsibility for the Tamil militancy and the
    resulting civil war has to be borne by the Sinhala
    political leadership. I am aware of the Machiavellian
    tactics and, the ‘divide and rule’ and
    ‘bribe and rule’ policies adopted by the
    Sinhala political establishment throughout the
    post-independence period, until the present times,
    when dealing with the Sinhala-Tamil problem in Sri
    Lanka. I am also aware of the ‘friend of the
    enemy is my foe and the foe of the enemy is my
    friend’ ploy adopted by your leaders at various
    times in our recent history. I also believe the Tamil
    militancy or terrorism as many of you would call it,
    was a reflection of the impotence, frustration and
    anger that the Tamils felt in the face of repeated
    transgressions by the Sinhala political establishment.
    I also believe the LTTE has played a crucial
    historical role in the Tamil liberation struggle, as
    many Tamils do. I am no less a Sri Lankan on account
    of these.

    I think I am what a typical Sri Lankan is and if not,
    should be in many ways, whether Sinhalese, Tamil,
    Muslim or any other. This letter is being addressed
    on the basis of this legitimacy and with the fervent,
    some may call it misplaced and naïve, hope that you
    are capable of responding reasonably, if matters are
    presented truthfully and objectively. Better
    communication, awareness and sincere debate, I am sure
    can yet resolve our problems sensibly and silence the
    guns permanently. It is about time we truly get to
    know each other after several decades of relative
    separation and mutual suspicions, begin to celebrate
    our commonalities and accept as normal our
    differences. There can be unity in diversity. This is
    how this world is made. If not for its diversity,
    there will not be any beauty in this world. Uniformity
    is quite unnatural and very undesirable. If we are
    continuously indoctrinated to believe that we are
    somehow superior to every one else in Sri Lanka and in
    this planet, there can only be continued conflict and
    war. We can be proud of who we are, while conceding
    the right of others to be proud of themselves.

    The problems have grown more complex over the years
    and more difficult to resolve, because of your short
    sighted, visionless, vicious and self- seeking
    leaders. If these problem are not resolved even at
    this stage, however difficult it may be, indications
    are that the situation would get far worse than
    anything we have experienced this far. The Tamil
    resistance that started with eloquent speeches,
    sit-ins and walk-outs in parliament, satyagrahas and
    sale of Ealam stamps, and progressed through simple
    pistols (sometimes wooden imitations!) to machine
    guns, suicide bombers, gun boats and multi-barrel
    rocket launchers, is now acquiring the skills to
    operate and capability to acquire helicopters and
    fixed wing aircraft. This is a fact that is staring in
    our face and which your leaders are unable to sense
    and sensibly respond to. Your leaders are yet
    fiddling like Nero did when Rome was burning! Do you
    believe that what could not be achieved over the past
    twenty years to suppress and eliminate the Tamil
    rebellion, during most of which time the advantage was
    stacked in favour of the Sri Lankan armed forces, can
    be achieved now by military means, without a
    calamitous cost to the average Sinhala people and Sri
    Lanka? Had the money spent by the Sri Lankan
    government (and the LTTE) on the war over twenty
    years, been invested in infra-structure and human
    resource development, our per capita income now would
    have likely been U.S $ 10,000/= or more instead of the
    paltry U.S $ 1000/= we are gloating over. It is also
    a tragedy that a government that is unable to mobilize
    finances to reconstruct the tsunami affected areas,
    was able in the past to find ingenious ways to finance
    an unnecessary, prolonged, futile, expensive and
    destructive war. What was simple and easily solvable
    problem in the 1950’s, has been permitted to
    escalate to the present level of complexity by the
    incredible stupidity, to use the mildest term, of your
    political leaders. All this was done in your name and
    in the name of democracy!

    I am a Tamil, who was a witness to the 1958 riots as
    a child and was directly affected by the riots of 1977
    and 1983 in the south, and by the Tamil militancy,
    IPKF operations and the civil war in the north. I am a
    Tamil who never aspired to leave Sri Lanka for
    employment, but was forced to do so, as a consequence
    of the 1977 riots, which left me destitute. I am also
    a Tamil, whose mother and brother were killed in 1987,
    quite unnecessarily by the IPKF in Jaffna. I am also a
    Tamil who was looted of material possessions in 1977
    by the Sinhala mob and in 1990 in Jaffna by the LTTE.
    I am also a Tamil who is very apprehensive of the
    negative impact of the militancy on the Tamils, their
    culture, values and way of life. In effect, I am an
    average Tamil of Sri Lanka.

    I know what it feels like when informed in the middle
    of a lecture at the University of Ceylon, Peradeniya
    that a Sinhala mob had attacked my home, where I had
    left my wife and child. I know what it feels like to
    run over mountains, pursued by a Sinhala mob, to save
    my life and limb. I know what it feels like to lose
    everything I possessed and worked hard for. I know
    what it feels like to live in a refugee camp with all
    its misery and squalor. I know what it feels like to
    be destitute and dependent on charity. I know what it
    feels like to experience a beloved maternal uncle,
    later an Archdeacon of the Anglican church, who chose
    to live amongst his people in Vavuniya, being arrested
    by the police and kept for a month in the fourth floor
    of the police headquarters in Colombo, for the sole
    reason that there were audio cassettes with Tamil
    liberation music among the large collection of books
    on various topics in his library. I know what it
    feels like to have a child caught in the middle of a
    riot and not know what happened to him for several
    days. I know what it feels like to see the rotting
    remains of a mother and brother killed by the IPKF,
    crawling with maggots, being eaten by crows and dogs.
    I know what it feels like to cremate a mother’s
    and a brother’s remains in the scrub with old
    tyres and petrol, sans any ceremony. I know what it
    feels like to be surrounded by IPKF soldiers with
    pointed rifles and every intention to shoot. I know
    what it feels like to see IPKF soldiers, brutally beat
    ordinary middle aged and old folk who were tied to
    trees for the only reason that they breached a
    thoughtless and prolonged curfew to search for their
    near and dear. I know what it feels like to see only
    the skull of a person I had known, who was shot and
    killed by the IPKF. I know what it feels like to face
    the wife and young children of a brother who was
    killed by the IPKF. I know what it feels like to see a
    fellow human being shot and ‘Lamp posted’
    for public display by the LTTE. I know what it feels
    like to be helpless and paralyzed, when a brother is
    held captive in the Vanni by the LTTE, with all the
    possibility that he may be hurt or even killed. I am
    a Tamil who has experienced the brutality and the
    horrors of the Sinhala-Tamil conflict in all its
    facets and during all its phases. It is fortunate
    that despite being deeply touched by these unfortunate
    events, I have been able to retain my sanity and
    objectivity. I am indeed an average Tamil in Sri

    I also know what it feels like to have students
    –Sinhalese and Tamils, rallying around me amidst
    a raging riot. I know what it feels like, when a
    person like the late Bishop Lakshman Wickremasinghe,
    amidst the attendant danger, using his influence to
    help in my hour of need. I know what it feels like
    when Sinhala and Tamil friends rallied to help and
    console, in the aftermath of a riot. I know what it
    feels like when Brig.’ Bull’ Weeratunge on
    seeing the sorry plight of my wife and child after the
    riot, giving me- a stranger, my first decent meal in
    several days and offering to provide police and army
    assistance to recover looted property. I know what it
    feels like when personnel from the Sri Lankan army
    ranging from Gen. Denzil Kobbekadduwa and Maj. Raja
    Uyangoda to ordinary soldiers rallying to help a
    helpless, but determined Tamil, whom they did not know
    before, reach the site of murder of his mother and
    brother in the midst of an IPKF imposed curfew, and
    help cremate them. I know what it feels like when a
    Sinhalese army officer of the standing of Maj.
    Uyangoda empathized with me as though his own mother
    was killed! I know what it feels like to sleep in a
    Sri Lankan army camp during an on-going war and be
    treated with kindness, sympathy and respect. I know
    what it feels like to receive letters of sympathy from
    ordinary Sinhalese who had read about what the IPKF
    had done to my mother and brother. I also know what
    it feels like when persons affiliated to the LTTE- who
    cannot be named, and others offered sympathy and help,
    when my brother was recently incarcerated in the
    Vanni. These are spontaneous human responses that
    transcend our affiliations and labels; demonstrate
    that most of us are decent human beings with our
    hearts in the right place; and affirm that we are yet
    by and large a civilized people.

    I am not writing my history- it can even be my epitaph
    in what Sri Lanka has become today- to win sympathy or
    favours from anyone, or to seek self aggrandizement,
    but to highlight the plight of an average Tamil caught
    in the Sri Lankan maelstrom. There are easier ways to
    seek personal gain or fame, if my intentions are that.
    My experiences are real and have been the experiences
    of most Tamils to a greater or lesser degree. There
    are also Sinhalese and Muslims, although much fewer,
    who have had similar or worse experiences due to the
    so-called Sinhala-Tamil problem in Sri Lanka. I am
    exposing my feelings as sincerely, honestly and
    directly as possible, in the hope that the human
    suffering entailed in this conflict is appreciated,
    acknowledged and given over riding importance. As
    predominantly Buddhists, I am sure you will come
    forward to do your best to resolve the underlying
    cause of this suffering swiftly. Only you have the
    power to do it! You have already demonstrated your
    humanity in the aftermath of the tsunami, with your
    spontaneous responses that transcended the artificial
    barriers of race, language and religion that were
    erected by our politicians and militants, and are now
    being fiercely defended by them.

    I believe that it is yet possible for the Sinhalese,
    Tamils, Muslims, Burghers, Malays, Buddhists, Hindus
    and Christians to share our island and her bounty
    peacefully and equitably. We are all her children. I
    also believe that we as a people, irrespective of our
    labels and affiliations have been badly led by our
    so-called leaders- politicians, academics, priests,
    journalists, trade unionists, militants, etc,. The
    men and women who have assumed leadership roles in our
    country have been our curse over the past fifty years
    and will stand condemned by history for their perfidy.
    It is time that we demanded better leadership and
    got it. At this juncture of our history, you- the
    Sinhalese, as a people and the majority community,
    should take a lead in demanding an immediate
    resolution of the political issues underlying the
    Sinhala- Tamil and majority- minority problems in Sri
    Lanka. This is the single most important problem that
    has hampered our development, retarded our progress
    and deprived us of greater prosperity, while eroding
    our decency and humanity as peoples of Sri Lanka. If
    these problems are satisfactorily resolved, we can
    march hand in hand to becoming a proud and respected
    nation, once again. We have the potential to be
    among the best in Asia, if not the world. We have not
    unleashed our potential as a people because we have
    been kept trapped in the quagmire of racist,
    intolerant and exclusive politics by our so- called
    leaders. It is time that we moved towards real
    democracy, genuine meritocracy, pragmatic governance
    and rule of law in Sri Lanka that will transcend the
    parochialism, tribalism, criminality, corruption and
    unaccountability that dominate our polity.

    Let bygones be bygones. There should be only lessons
    to be learnt from the past, if we are to be
    progressive nation. Let us open a new chapter in our
    lives as citizens of Sri Lanka. Let us push our
    leaders, to truly represent us as a people and reflect
    our aspirations. They have been hitherto largely
    rabble rousers who have appealed to our basest,
    primitive and animal instincts, and thrived at our
    expense. While, we Tamils have a contribution to make
    towards resolving our problems, the larger burden is
    on you, as the majority and politically dominating
    segment of the population in Sri Lanka. This
    necessitates that you answer some questions after some
    fact finding and soul searching:

    1.Do you accept that the Tamils have a problem within
    the Sri Lankan polity?

    2.Do you accept that the Tamils have been treated
    unjustly and have immensely suffered as a result?

    3.Do you accept that all citizens of Sri Lanka have to
    be treated equally and equitably by the state?

    4.Do you accept that it is foolish and even primitive
    in the 21st century- when national barriers are being
    transcended- to argue and fight over who came to the
    island first centuries ago or who did what to whom
    centuries back, to the detriment of our country?

    5.Do you accept that the Tamil militancy and the
    ‘Tiger’ phenomenon are the result of the
    failures of the Sri Lankan state?

    6.Do you accept that the Sinhala- Tamil and
    majority-minority problems have to be resolved

    7.Do you accept that these problems cannot be resolved
    through ‘hot war’ as in the pre- ceasefire
    period and ‘cold war’ as now in the post-
    ceasefire period?

    8.Do you accept that the system of governance in Sri
    Lanka has to be changed from one that is highly
    centralized to one that is very decentralized?

    9.Do you understand the differences between a
    ‘unitary state’ and a ‘federal

    10.Do you know that Sri Lanka can be a federal state
    and at the same time be a united state?

    11.Do you accept that the Sinhalese, Tamils and
    Muslims have a right to manage their internal affairs
    in areas where they are a majority, if true democracy
    is to prevail?

    12.Do you accept that the federal system of governance
    is best suited for a multi-ethnic and multi-religious
    country like Sri-Lanka, that is being torn apart by
    the politics in a majoritarian unitary state?

    13.Do you know that the predominantly Sinhala
    provinces will also benefit from federal system of
    decentralized governance?

    14.Do you know that the federal system of governance
    is successfully working in diverse countries such as
    India, Malaysia, Canada, Australia, Germany, France
    and the United States of America (Confederal )?

    15.Do you know that a federal status within Sri Lanka
    to the predominantly Tamil provinces will not
    automatically lead to the formation of an independent
    Tamil Ealam?

    16.Do you know that ‘Tamil Nadu’ is a
    state with a chief minister, cabinet, state assembly
    and administrative, law making and law enforcement
    systems, among many in India?

    17.Do you know that most Tamils, including the LTTE
    are ready to accept a well structured and organized
    federal system of governance as an alternative
    to an independent Tamil Ealam, within Sri Lanka?

    18.Can you pressurize your leaders to immediately
    propose a plan for effective federalization of the Sri
    Lankan polity?

    19.Do you think that an ‘Constitutional
    Commission’ of eminent men- Sinhala, Tamil and
    Muslim, and with international representation should
    be formed now to
    propose a binding federal constitution for Sri Lanka,
    as our politicians are incapable of bringing forth
    one on their own, unless it serves their self
    interests ?

    20. Do you understand that Sri Lanka will not be
    able to develop and progress,unless the present
    unitary system of governance is dumped as early as

    Your answers to these questions will decide the fate
    of Sri Lanka as a nation for centuries to come. If
    the proper answers are not found you will stand
    condemned by history for having unconscionably failed
    mother Lanka in her hour of need. If you find the
    right answers, we would be on the threshold of a
    golden era, never before seen in our history.

    May God bless you and give the guidance and wisdom
    needed at the present time.

    Yours sincerely,
    Yet a Tamil Sri Lankan

            dwindling numbers veddha,how do you know spinsters never experience love making.Are you spying on them 24/7.You must be still living in the 20th century.Now it is the married women who are starved of lovemaking while the unmarried ones are free to select and choose.

            You may get a shock one day if you are made an angel by god and you could see everything that humans get up to.

            Their antics wiil be enough to keep you entertained.You will not need TV or anything.BTW don’t peep into my bedroom please.We are old buddies no? Have some courtesy and veddha manners please.

      hey jay,you own goal dumb ass,every sentence he has written should be treasured by srilankans.He wrote it in 2005.have you sloved the ethnis problem in 2015?I too believe the only solution for the sinhalese to solve this problem is a federal state like in malaysia or switzerland.

      We will talk about this again in 2025,when one of either the following will happen.

      1.North and east federal state of srilanka.
      2.North and east federal state of india.
      3.North seperate state.
      4.North and east seperate state.
      5.North and east overseas territory of US or UK.

      Which would you prefer.Dr.narendran is only warning you to give the first one as quickly as possible because he knows it will end up in one of the other 4 if you don’t and he would hate to become an indian as his mum and bro were murdered by them.I too want the first choice.

      Dr.narendrans letter is like pearls before swine for chauvinist Jay.

    There is enough evidence to arrest BBS monk under Prevention of Terrorism Act. Opposition and Muslim Parties should demand this in the Parliament. Otherwise demand that the Secretary of Defence to be removed from his post. Why is the opposition not doing this.

    It looks like war monger Gota is finally reaching his goal after several years of hard work starting with Grease devils.

    My pray and sorrow for the lives lost. My sympathies to the sadden families.

    Muslims must be calm. Please don’t let the evil to make another 83′.
    Don’t contribute the Satan to rule continuously. Don’t fight a losing battle.
    Muslims have no leader to guide them. That is sad, very sad indeed.
    Muslims must use their brain and refrain from taking arms. No other Muslim nation will come forward to help the Muslims, specially Pakistan. Pakistan’s only agenda is Pakistan and not Muslims. So don’t rely on them.

    Sinhalese – Please, let’s eradicate this volatile situation. Peace loving people come forward and stop this hatredcreated by this mad regime. Lets teach a lesson to Gnanasara mad dog and his masters. apparently we didn’t learn anything from 83′.

    This is really sad.

    The BBS and that mad monk in robes is just the front face; a mere puppet on a string.As for the puppeteers there are just two. One is a Securocrat , as Dayan Jayatillke so accurately described him.He wears a tie ,pants and shirt and an expensive pair of spectacles.He has a wildly growing mustache that perfectly fits a deadly inhuman look ,made even more sinister by squinted eyes.

    Behind this Securocrat is a man dressed in national dress with with a maroon satakaya always around the neck ,with an equally wildly growing mustache . Unlike the Securocrat, this man is perfectly capable of pinching the child and rocking the cradle at one and the same time.Unlike the Securocrat this man can sport a greesy smile and at other times a deadly glare

    Who are these two? Your perfect guess is the same as mine.Where are these two imbeciles taking this beloved land of our’s ? Mother Lanka only divine intervention can save thee.Natraj,Lord Buddha are u there?

    I am sure Our Saddarmadveepa Chakrawarthi will call all Victims Families to “Raja Gedara” and apologize and have a Group Photo. Our Independent media will do the rest. Also he will assure that he will not allow anybody to take the Law on to their hands as everybody in this country are equal in front of the Law, but except He and his Family, all the Ministers and their Families, all UPFA Provincial Councillors and their Families, all UPFA Town Council members and their Families, all UPFA members of “Pradeshiya Saba” and their families and friends and friends of those all UPFA members and their Families. Also he will appoint special Presidential commission to investigate in to the incident and order IGP to appoint special Police teams to Investigate the matter independently and bring the culprits to book irrespective of their political alliance. Also he will say that he has a right to protect rights of minorities as he is the “Jathiye Aadambarakara Thaththa”. May be some will say that we have a paralyzed society who can’t rally against injustice and Impotent Police chief who can’t use his powers to protect civilians from these “Saffron Robed Thugs of Madamulana Nikaya or he even can’t protect his fellow Police officers from political Goons. But the reality is our Sri Rohana Manaranjana, 3 Sinhaladeeshwara, 3 Sanwedee, Nihathamani and Palapurudu Aadambarakara thatha will win his 3rd term also. That is because we are living in such a society with a back boneless opposition.

    “Riots started following the BBS Galagoda Atthe Gnanasara‘s inciteful and fear mongering speech yesterday in Aluthgama prior to the riots.”

    You are wrong CT, it started many years back and the man who planted the seed was Gangodawila Soma, and nourished by Jathika Helu Urumaya. Fruits can be enjoyed soon, perhaps next months or so…

    I have been interacting with Sri Lankans for decades, and found them humble and loving. the nation has braved a long war for its integrity.
    as a student of history, what I feel is that its enemies are not sitting idle, but trying to engulf it’s identity though extremist elements. their (easy)targets are the two minorities– Christians and now Muslims. isn’t it strange that Sri Lanka received help from Muslim and Christian countries to preserve its identity!

    are the Sri Lankans sure that the sponsors of separatist movement in the north of the island are happy and satisfy on their failure to dismember sri lanka or bring it under their thumb.

    sri lankans fought and win their independence in battle fields. lets see and pray that the island people deal with the issue with wisdom and far sightedness.

    long live sri lanka
