Gota A Devout Buddhist, Vegetarian, Feeds Flesh To Pet Sharks

By Suranimala Umagiliya

The mainstream Sinhala media is awash with news of Gotabaya Rajapaksa being the front runner from the Lotus Bud party at the next Presidential election. That sums up the pathetic state of the media. The fourth estate must educate and guarantee the citizens right to information. Such information must be disseminated with great responsibility. Information presented with clarity will educate the masses in making judicious decisions concerning their future and that of the next generation.

Gotabaya for President? Sri Lankans must be out of their minds or plain looney to even give it a second thought. Here is a man who is suspected of grave crime dodging appearing in Court to clear himself. An educated public will insist that he goes through a legal process to confirm that he has clean hands prior to representing them and their next of kin. The media must stop the current nonsense and push Gotabaya to do so. Weren’t journalists assaulted, tortured, abducted and even murdered during his tenure as the Secretary to the Ministry of Defence?

The Viyathmaga movement apart, Gotabaya has shown how shallow his thought process is. His new found foray into macro economics, delivered in measured tone
is fake at best. Consider how fake he is. He is a vegetarian. A self confessed devout Buddhist. A Nationalist who assumes that Sri Lanka is predominantly for the Sinhala/ Buddhist.Well and good. But his pets are flesh eating sharks !! Huh? That reflects his true persona. Fake.

Gotabaya as complainant against The Sunday Leader defended the purchase of MiG fighter jets as a Government to Government deal. He gave such evidence under oath. It is now found to be false. He distanced himself from the activities of the Army Intelligence who abducted,assaulted, tortured and even murdered journalists. His style of leadership is to claim credit for affirmative action but blame his subordinates for failure. Qualities of a poor leader.

Seventy years after gaining independence from the British, us Sinhalese (by virtue of being the majority race) have controlled successive governments. Some may argue that the nation has progressed considerably.Is that enough or is it the best we can do? Mirror that with the rest of the world and the answer is clear. Corruption has become endemic. Gotabaya has also been suspected of corruption, fraud and even murder.

A self confessed vegetarian who feeds flesh to his pets is as fake as one can get. Can Sri Lanka entrust the whole country to such person even as an experiment? The Rajapaksa family miscalculated and lost the last Presidential election. If any of them succeed the next time around they will make certain to stay on forever.If not for any other reason, that is good enough to thwart them.

Does the journalistic profession have any shame? Go on do your job and show what he is. Warts and all.

    Alright Suranimala, show me evidence of Gota raising sharks and feeding them animal protein. Then I will believe you. The bankrupt Yahapalana suckers are grabbing at the straws now, making up fairy tales. Also remember sharks do not eat vegetables.

            Whether I like or not… why you guys feel to have more rights above the average ?

            This is the culture that Raajapkshe rascals established in this country. That is one of the point we need to discuss louder than we can so that the message can outreach to the gulliable in this country. Gawky gulliable folks would get caught by SINIBOLA stories being added by Rajapakshe rascals, not long ago, prior to 2015, I noticed by myself, there had been no power as an average citizen in that part of the world – I was namely travelling from A to B by a public bus, there I was helpless the manner, how the busdriver and his conductor let commuters to have damaged their eardrums by sound exposures of the music. And again super markets have no law and order whereever you just walked up, that was the same. Loud speakers were every street corner as it was seen in an far poor african country. THugs ruled the nation no matter voiceless people were made deaf in that context. If opens mouth, what could have been happened was facing it as Wanatha mull sunil did or Ekanaligoda cartoonist faced it. Why to bring the kind fo idiots back and let them ruin this nation again even worst than had ever been in the past ?

            Is that a threat or are you agreeing to the fact that your favourite ‘Rajapakya’ is a murderer?.
            You have to be careful with your words cos’ you can be arrested for hiding information from the CID/STF/Police are unaware of. So, mind your words and this is not a threat but a true and a fair warning.

            You are absolutely a born imbecile. Not knwoing what you vebeen talking about. There had been some comments being added by you, that you would not respect RAPAKAHSE. but very same man to have changed it by today is a provable fact you to be a mad person.
            We dont want any arguments on that.
            I really dont know why a man in your age adds that way. What brings you BEING that rude to own folks ?
            Your entire life is believed to be cornered to SAUDI right ?
            Where you have not the basic rights as a human being – may be the reason you to think so corrupted. Or you can be part of Rajapakshe circles. We got to know his Cousin in the US – former uneducated Embassador to the US – is not number one to be caught by interpole. No second to the other cousin, by name Udayanga Weeratunga who is said to be jailed in DUBAI.

      Q:Do you still have Sharks?
      A: No I don’t. I no longer have facilities to keep them so I returned those to the people who gifted them to me.

      Gota’s affection for sharks was first disclosed in 2009 with photos.
      You being a lazy b***s carrier did not bother to read nor notice what was in his house. While serving him you could not have avoided the shark.

      If you are so keen to disprove stories about goons, war criminals, crooks, … you should stay tuned to news 24/7/52.
      I am sure you are going to demand evidence in about an years time.

          Thanks I am fine and doing alright.

          I believe sharks appeared in only four films, namely Thunderball, Live and Let Die, License to kill and The spy who loved me.

          It was a fish in Dr No that appeared large due to 10 inch thick convex glass.

          I do not think Dr Gota will ever win a presidential election. Many ordinary people seem not to like him as president. Maybe he was a necessary evil when he acted as the national hangman for Mahinda.

          If Mahinda contests elections today he has good chance of being elected as president because he has cultivated a image of himself as an affable rogue. He was flop as an actor however he seems to be a good actor as politician.

          Our people are really stupid.

      wannihami ~ “Alright Suranimala, show me evidence of Gota raising sharks and feeding them animal protein…………”.
      Remember Gota in his heyday ordered SriLankan Airlines to alter schedules so that his hand picked pilot can bring him a puppy from Switzerland? The puppy did arrive and grew into a big big big German Shepard.
      wannihami: Are you suggesting that the dog was raised on parripu and rice?

      Wannihami – And it could be argued that True Buddhists do not imprison animals for their vicarious pleasure and then buy flesh to feed them.

      What about responding to the other points Suranimala raised?

      Bankrupt Yahapalanyas? That may well be true, but Gota for President? That’s all Sri Lanka needs to make a dire situation worse!!

      He need not show evidence of what Gota feeds or does not feed his pet sharks. He need not show evidence that Gota even has sharks but the fact that extra judicial murders were committed during his brother’s tenure when he was the secretary of defense by the very machinery that was under his command is proof enough that this man is brutal and merciless. Further he fled to the US when his country needed him the most and returned only when his brother ascended the throne. That is proof enough that this man is selfish. Don’t we remember his abusive rant over the phone with the former Sunday Leader editor Frederica Jansz? He called her among many things a pig that eats shit and a dirty f….ing shit journalist. Are these proof enough or do you still believe that he is a devout Buddhist who calls a woman a pig and a dirty f….ing journalist?

      Wannihami,

      When GoTa was in US, he was showed great avarice for beef. I know well at some of the dinners we had with him, he ate beef and pork well. Now all of a sudden, to dupe gullible Sinhala Buddhists, he has changed his color and showing off as a devout vegetarian. How despicable is this man called GoTa, the 2020 Presidential Hopeful?

      Pinhami.
      There was a political discussion in a TV channel during Rajapaksha time. Participants were Ajith P. Perera, Pavithra Wanniarachchi, Bandula Gunawardana. I don’t remember the other participant. At the discussion Ajith P. Perera accused the then Govt. UPFA and said millions of monies paid to LTTE to sabotage the Presidential election in 2015. Ajith P. Perera said that was disclosed by then UPFA parliament member Tyron Alles. Then Pavithra Wannarachchi said where are the proofs? can you show video evidence giving money. haa….. haaa….. Our Pinhami may be related to Pavithra. Even Gota admitted that he was raising Sharks.

          A popular government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance. And a people who mean to be their own Governors must arm themselves with the Power that knowledge gives.

      Wannihami:
      Your comment is strange, to say the least. Gotabhaya made a statement to the effect that he had to give away his sharks because he no longer had accommodation for them. I suppose he was hallucinating about having had fish when he (according to you) never had.
      Is there no end to the lunatic spouting of the likes of you who contradict the very people they are extolling and defending?

        Emilio Largo, Karl Stromberg, and Franz Sanchez were antagonists of James bond who were very fond of sharks and shark tanks.

        Only Emilio Largo resembles Dr Gota the national hangman.

        None of the 26 Bond films had portrayed a Sri Lankan villain nor were shot in Sri Lanka. Its time Eon Productions considered making a Bond film in Sri Lanka with leading villain whose character is based on Dr Gotabhaya the evil genius who single -handedly kills James Bond.

    Buddhas teachings should be right, if this man is veg and that strong buddhist.

    We perfectly know his aggressions. So does the world. He has let people missing. He has taken revenge on war won SF.. and let him be rotten in prisons. He grabed funds of tax payers funds. He killed Lasantha and let Ekanligoda other journos missing.
    And the list of this high criminal would have been longer than people are informed about him.
    But his press men would never allow people to get the facts about the man for some hidden reasons. White van took the life of untold men and women…. to prove Lasantha W murder to have been perpetrated by a made solidier, he instifted a poor reitred solder in Kegalle to commit suicide. All in all this man is really dangerous to lanken future. Keep away the bugger from lanken politics is timeworthy for a healthy srilanka.

    RE: Gota A Devout Buddhist, Vegetarian, Feeds Flesh To Pet Sharks

    “The mainstream Sinhala media is awash with news of Gotabaya Rajapaksa being the front runner from the Lotus Bud party at the next Presidential election. That sums up the pathetic state of the media. The fourth estate must educate and guarantee the citizens right to information. Such information must be disseminated with great responsibility. Information presented with clarity will educate the masses in making judicious decisions concerning their future and that of the next generation”

    Yes, but the mean IQ of the populace, Para-Sinhala “Buddhist” populace, that is a Sinhala-“Buddhist” Cult, have difficulty, understanding these issues. Yes, it is the responsibility of the media to explain these issues to the low IQ populace, in a manner they can digest.

    Gota A Devout Buddhist, Vegetarian, Feeds Flesh To Pet Sharks”

    CT, Gota “Devout” Buddhist’? Are you out of your mind?

    Say: Gota A Devout Mara-“Buddhist” cultist, carnivore, Robber, Killer and Liar,, Feeds Flesh To Pet Sharks, in keeping with his beliefs.

    Ask Lasntha, Ekliyagoda and many others who are currently dwelling elsewhere.

      Being a Vegetarian is the Easiest Way to Show the World that One is a Good Buddhist!
      Whereas the Basic Way of Buddhism are the Five Precepts, ‘Pancha Sila’, which are;

      I undertake the way of training:-
      1……Not to Kill, or Cause to be Killed, any Living Creatures, including Humans!
      2…..Not to Acquire Anything that One does not Earn, by One’s Own Efforts!
      3…..To Abstain from all Aspects of Sexual Misconduct!
      4…..To Abstain from Twisting the Truth to Gain Benefits for Oneself!
      5…..To Abstain from Alcohol, Drugs and other Substances that Cloud the Mind, even if One believes that Alcohol does not Cloud the Mind!

      Repeating the Five precepts in Pali, does not make One a Good Buddhist!

        Rationalist,

        “Repeating the Five precepts in Pali, does not make One a Good Buddhist!”

        Yes. Repeating the Pan Sil (Five precepts) in Pali, or in Sinhala does not make One a Good Buddhist, especially, when they do Pan Sil ( Five precepts) on Sunday Night and do Monday nights kills in addition.

        That is why Sinhala-“Buddhism” is classified as a Cult.

    To me, Gota is another character. All these high profile fellows have a lot of skeletons in their cupboard. Gota-bashing is good entertainment for us as the readers of CT. Vegetarian! My Foot! But the vast majority of electors are not readers of CT. I suggest that we should go into something more deep. What is the real lesson we should learn from the CBK-RW government and the MY3-RW government? The disunited approach of a President elected from one party and the holder of the parliamentary majority from another. It is like the attempt of a bird and a fish to live together. The most important omission of the 19th amendment was making it compulsory for the President to give up any allegiance to a political party. HE can have all the powers but that should be made to use as a check on the excesses of an elected government. Clearly the President and the PM cannot be fighting on different political agenda. Let the political aspect be left to Parliament and the President, directly elected by the people and should ensure the stability of the state and proper governance.

    There are lots of misconceptions attributed to Buddhism by “non-Buddhists.” Eg: eating meat.
    .
    Lord Buddha laid down several rules prohibiting monks storing and growing their own food and asking what food they want. They were asked to eat what laymen eat and consider the food offered as medicine.
    These rules are mentioned in Vinaya Pitaka (Mahavagga.)
    .
    According to the “THE BOOK OF THE DISCIPLINE (VINAYA-PITAKA) VOLUME IV (MAHAVAGGA, translated by I. B. HORNER, M.A. Associate of Newnham College, Cambridge, London, the rule is as follows which applied to Buddhist monks (and followed by laymen as well):
    .
    “296 BOOK OF DISCIPLINE
    1 pavattamamsa, i.e. already killed, and not to be killed on purpose for the monk. For monks might eat no fish or meat which they saw, heard or suspected had been specially killed for them, Vin. iii. 1 72.”
    The rule is not accepting meat or fish that had been killed specifically for them. Some Buddhist don’t eat meat at all at their own personal will. Some don’t eat beef and pork at their own personal will.
    .
    Gotabhaya didn’t kill animals by himself to offer sharks or he didn’t order anybody to kill animals specifically to feed his sharks or didn’t see animals were killed to feed sharks. If he had sharks, the meat he fed sharks were belonged to already killed animals.
    .
    I think Tibetans never kill animals. Eating meat involves killing animals.

    Another guy suffering from Gotaforbia.
    “Sri Lankans must be out of their minds or plain looney to even give it a second thought.”
    In case Gatabhaya contest at the next Presidential election Sri Lankans will be out of their minds or plain loony if they do not elect him as the President. Except for few dumbidiots, others have realized the mistake they made by voting for ‘Hansaya’. Ordinary folks use the saying ‘hansayata chande depu kenek behetakatawath hoya ganna behe’ (even to use as medicine, it is impossible to find a person who voted to ‘Hansaya’)

    Lankan: That comment was brief and direct to hit the targets that must be dealt with in the larger interest of the country. Have courage to keep moving. As regards that “Lasantha Murder”, one of the “suspects” has already made a “confidential” statement to the Magistrate and new “twist” and “turns” are taking place, but sadly on SLOW space. If such other “suspects” in very many cases, whom I believe are and were either “accomplices” or “unwilling escape goats” come forward to say, even “secretly” by such “voluntary” statements, these “Criminals” galloping on the back of people with the “carrot” labeled as “Religion”; “Tribalism” and with the blessings of equivalent “Intellectual Criminals” could easily be brought to book. This “Road Show” by these “Criminals” with assistance of “Media” is one among many such “Tactical Moves” adopted to prevent such “Confessions” being made and also to “inject” a “Fear Psychosis” among the Law Enforcement, including the Judiciary. Therefore, please remember these “Road Shows” backed by “Intellectuals” and “Media” are “Double Edged” weapons.

    In the 1970s Point Petro MP Thurairatnam proved in the parliament with statistics that Buddhist countries were highest in crimes.

    That explains why human flesh eating shark owner is a Buddhist.

    Lankawe is the number one in murder rate. Number two in Rape, drug using & abortion rates.

    Our duty is to believe that for which we have sufficient evidence, and to suspend our judgment when we have not. (John Lubbock)
    Gota: The author says, ”Here is a man who is ’suspected’ of grave crime dodging appearing in Court to clear himself.”. The key word here is ’suspected’. In any country suspicion is not sufficient for conviction for a crime. There has to be evidence that can stand in a court of law.
    The burden of proof of his innocence is not on Gota. Rather, the burden of proof of his guilt is on the legal system of the country.
    The author says goes on to say that “Gota is dodging appearing in Court to clear himself”. Gota is not a phantom character with special powers to be able to evade arrest. If the authorities really want to arrest him they can do it easily. He is out there, addressing meetings, having shin digs in hotels, holding press conferences openly and so on. So, let them go and arrest him. They will not do that not because Gota is playing dodging games but because they do not want to do that. The Yahapalanites are just dogs whose bark is worse than their bite.
    The author says, 70 years after gaining independence from the British, us Sinhalese (by virtue of being the majority race) have controlled successive governments, And Abracadabra peanut butter sandwich – the author reveals his real problem: the Sinhalese are controlling the government.

      Yes Edwin the moron, we perfectly know the nature of prevailing legal systen in the rotten island. RIGHT ? That small lady – lawyer revealed to the world not just few incidents but dozens without any fears recently. That proved how the system works actually.
      Alone Gota to get him court days put off from day to another is proved how abusive it should be. The bugger knows it well – what and how high crimes he deliberately perpetrated. The one who did any crimes knows it better. Itis public secret how he handled hundreds of issues in favour of their abusive mind set.
      No in the world would anyone with that aggressive potential- can be escaped easily. Wait and see where this man s destiny lies. – to me, even more likely the bugger ended up in a cell than becoming the future leader of EDWINs dominated srilanka.

    Who is responsible for the journalists killed, kidnapped, disabled, maimed during MR regime.The answer will be so far no convictions. My response to that is why didn’t they investigate when they were in power. The answer is loud and clear. The perpetrators being Buddhists have to be reminded that even though they might escape the law their KARMA will chase them and their cohorts for Sarasanka Kapa Lakshayak.

      May be he fed the White Van kidnap victims to his pet sharks. This is the reason the Grease Yakkas and the White Vans were roaming around the country, searching for free human flesh , especially Tamil and Muslim to feed his pet sharks. By feeding these needy sharks he was obtaining good Karma .

    Great discussion here CT . Everyone venting their spleen on what kind of food Gota’s pet shark was fed. I have some info to say that he had some piranha who are essentially carnivorous fish. Most of the guys writing here like the Vedda would not have a clue about piranhas. Too sophisticated for them.Do you want Gota to make them vegetarians and become Brahmins in their next birth. Some discourse we are having here.! This is looney tunes personified!

      Since you are a film buff you will agree with me Eon Production should consider making a James Bond film in Sri Lanka with Dr Gota playing the leading role against the evil genius James Bond (representing everything evil about West) who is eventually killed in a shark tank.

      Look at Dr Gota who resembles Emilio Largo even without the eye patch.

    What Gota eats or what he feeds his pets should be the least of our worries.
    As usual we focus on the very petty issues and forget the important ones.
    We should be looking at Gota for the crimes he has committed.
    Starting from 1987 when he was the army chief in Matale, Giritale camp.
    Matale was one of the most brutal areas during the JVP time, where the Army massacared youth like flies. Gota was in charge. He had no empathy or compassion for anyone and killed young boys and girls in cold blood, just on meer suspision. He was known as the butcher of Matale.
    The list or Gota executions is endless. Many active Journalist publishing humanrights violations and fraud were conveniently bumped off.
    He had a civilian hit squad under his command to carryout the executions.
    Then in 2009 during LTTE last battle, tamil civilians who were taken as human shields by the LTTE were massacared to get to the LTTE leadership and they too were massacared under Gotas orders.
    (please don’t get me wrong, I am not defending LTTE murderers, what I am saying is that we as a sinhala buddhist people should have captured the white flag carrying Terrorist and given them a fair trial and given them the punishment according to the full extent of the Law, instead of acting like terrorist ourselves).
    In 2012 walikada prison massacre, 27 inmates who had fundamental rights cases were killed in cold blood on Gotas orders. The list is endless with all manner of white van abductions and executions to match.
    Why don’t we put these crimes on the spot light.
    I have not even mentioned the financial crimes committed by Mara/Gota duo nor have I counted the innumerable corners the brothers have cut during their tenure taking the law into their hands, such as having their kith and kin in all the key positions and the crimes they committed.

    There is proof that he was involved in the illegal trade of human kidneys.. some forced to donate their kidneys. It was done I know at Lanka Hospitals as well. That’s why he was Chairman of Lanka Hospital’s and pretended to be a saint by not takeing a salary .

    Mr.Pesident and Mr. Prime Minister, I wonder if this is the way to address you both or should people call you with prefixes (Excellency and Honorable) ?. without a trace of doubt many will say in one voice, we are demeaning and prostituting these two words when they are used for people who are hypocrites and who profess to be of sterling honesty, when they are really far from these noble qualities. We remember how the previous President was almost raised to sainthood with the word ” Srimath” attached to his name and similarly G R. too will be called His eminence as he is supposed to be a ardent Buddhist perhaps holier than Ven. Gnasara. who is practising Nirmala Buddhism. Why don’t you two leaders for that matter all politicians look at your faces before a mirror if you care to , even with your facial make-ups you will not resemble a homo sapian. I wonder if the Sinhala race is under going breeding depression that has started from the politicians. How else can one explain the glaring lies that are being uttered repeatedly regarding their direct involvements in numerous crimes and financial deals. We often hear the lamentations of people who are at the receiving end,but the politicians are hell bent on coming back to their past political positions as if nothing wrong has been done by them. For heavens sake, you two leaders get together forget your damn egos and aspirations think of our Mother lanka before everything else, see that Justice is done to the affected people who are still mourning and weeping over their loved ones who have been brutally and mercilessly annihilated. Do you want to bring them back to power by paving the way surreptitiously, people are watching you closely, please do not play dirty political games. Come 2020 you will be in forgotten limbo. Time is clicking fast, Remember Time and Tide waits for none.
