Gota And The Minorities

By Kumar David

Prof. Kumar David

A Sri Lankan President, as reported by the BBC, New York Times and The Telegraph (UK) and not contradicted by him up to this time of writing, has for the first time dropped the bombshell that 20,000 Tamils were killed in the civil war. Before commenting on that let me discuss devolution. Allow me these premises. 

1. Gota is on record as having said devolution is not possible because the majority are opposed.

2. I (KD) agree that this is factually correct. The Sinhalese are strongly opposed, at this moment, to any devolution to the Tamils and Muslims in their respective areas of domicile. That’s a fact, let’s face it!

3. There is an implication in the way Gota phrased it that he, personally, would be more accommodating but his hands are tied by prevailing correlations of power.

4. There is historical precedent to this. Banda and Dudley had to tear up the B-C Pact and the Dudley-Chelva Accord, respectively, and duck for cover when Sinhala chauvinists and monks counterattacked.

If 1 to 4 are correct what is the right thing for Gotabaya Rajapaksa to do? You can’t and shouldn’t expect him to hit his head against a rock and destroy himself. At the same time, it would be wrong to do nothing. Then how should he set about overcoming this gangrene?  How did others who faced moral challenges of similar proportions respond? Three that come to mind are Lincoln, Gandhi and Mandela, admittedly men of extraordinary stature, but that’s just what makes them important. All three were determined to fight and to raise the consciousness of their people. Leaders must stand ahead of the people if they intend to lead; the quality of leadership is not the passivity of a tail. Gota has a job to do, but does he have the moral strength?

Lincoln fought a long and hard battle to preserve the union and to abolish slavery. The first was his primary goal but he never abandoned the latter. Gandhi, after early missteps alienating the Muslims and disadvantaged castes, by the late 1930s rose to full stature and stood for Muslims as no other Hindu leader and eventually he identified with downtrodden castes as much as Ambedkar did. He single-handedly stopped the riots in Calcutta which the British-Indian army could not. Mountbatten called him “my one-man army”. Lincoln and Gandhi payed the ultimate price. Gota if he wants to be a leader of stature must campaign hard to educate his six-plus million voters to bring reconciliation and social harmony but in addition to moral commitment he also needs tactical wisdom.  Gandhi was the unluckiest of my triumvirate; he could not prevent the partition of India. Mandela the luckiest; he did not suffer an assassin’s bullet when guiding his people through a grim compromise. The real problem is that there is little evidence that Gota is doing much to educate the Sinha- Buddhist people that devolution is right. He could become another fallen by the wayside discard like Aung San Suu Kye. Pity.

Now to the bombshell. I find an estimate of about twenty thousand Tamil deaths in the civil war credible. He should have pulled together the best official estimates before risking this remarkably controversial declaration. Every previous government has lied brazenly so why did he so unexpectedly come clean, if he did? Perhaps he wants to put the past behind, admit the truth, grant amnesty to military personnel guilty of grievous misconduct and issue death certificates to relatives of victims. Or is he looking even beyond; seeking final closure with the Tamils and clearing the decks for a new settlement? If this is the case, he will have to be prepared to make sacrifices for the public good. Is he ready for a showdown with lunatic racial extremists and hate-crazed monks and does he realise that this admission weakens his vote bank in the coming elections? 

Gota has no declared ideology and subscribes to no political philosophy. One has to make out where he is going by assuming that pragmatism is his yardstick. I am now of the view that this approach provides a better assessment how his presidency will evolve than attributing to him immovable ideological, dictatorial or racist obligations. Paradoxically then, it is important to deny the SLPP-SLFP a two-thirds majority at the next election and forestall a “strong executive”. Authoritarianism is as dangerous a tool in the hands of pragmatist with no proven democratic credentials as it would be in the hands of potentially more sinister successors. 19A is miserable but its better than any now feasible alternative.

        To say that Tamils cannot have justice because Sinhalese majority are not willing for it, amounts to racism. This is what happened in Bosnia, East Timor and South Sudan where international community had to step in to deliver justice. You have to do what is morally right and not what is politically right if you have to settle disputes in a fair manner. What Modi is doing is exactly that, on issues which Congress party kept on dragging for years. These are good examples to follow:
        1. Creation of Telengana state despite opposition from majority of Telugus. – Former capital of Hyderabad was assigned to the new state and money allocated for a new capital in Amravati for the rump Andra state.
        2. Creation of Ladak state despite opposition from majority of Kashmiris. – All the lands belonging to Ladakis were brought under one state despite a large section of Hindus and Muslims resident in Ladak.
        3. Creation of Bodo state despite opposition from majority of Assamese. – All the areas where Bodos live were brought under one state.
        4. Very soon there will be Gurkhaland carved from Bengal state
        Correct solution for Sri Lanka is the creation of Tamil majority state linking all areas of historic habitation of Tamils by linking northern province with re-demarcated eastern province (Removing Gomarankadwela AGA division, Amaparai electorate and Lahugala AGA division), and adding Puttalam electorate (which was known as Demala Hatpattu and was part of Jaffna kingdom).
        By the way it is the stated policy of BJP that Sri Lanka was a Hindu country which has now has a Buddhist majority similar to Kashmir which was a Hindu country that now has a Muslim majority.
        It is only time that Modi will intervene to grant justice to Tamils, now that he had clearly told Gota and Mahinda that Tamils should be given equality and justice and allowed to live in peace with dignity three times over.

          Anytime anything is not acceptable to a Tamil it is racism! Tamils do the morally right thing in seeking bogus asylum in western countries when they are nothing but economic migrants! Sri Lanka is not India and Sri lankans are not bound by PM Modi’s actions. Tamils as Tamils do not have a country in the world! Over 60 million Tamils, your Kith and kin live there. Ask PM Modi, to separate Tamil Nadu, and make it the only Tamil Nation in the world. Modi will intervene and grant justice to Tamils!!!! Sri Lankan Tamils must take note that Sri Lankans will never allow our nation to be divided on the basis of race and religion. Tamils have equality and justice that is why over 50% of the Tamils and over 50% of the Muslims living in Sri Lanka live and work in Colombo and the south! Live reality, not past Eelam dreams of Tamil terrorist murderers.

            LANAKA,
            I agree with you not all but some tamils are economic migrants.you and your so called verayaas are responsible for this.do you know that most tamils left katunayake air port on bogus passports and altered documents with the help of police and immigration officers after bribing them with lot of money.most singala immigration and police officers who were working at the airport became very rich due this.i can responsibly say one day in 1980 or 1990 a singalease immigration officer came to a travel agency ran by a friend of mine in chtham steet with official immigration rubber stamp and and signed three bogus or amended passport and collected a bundle of cash from him.there is no love for the country in front of bundle of money-jayaweewa.

            Economic immigrant is not a good term. European and other western countries have been conspiring against Sri lanka for several reason. as a part of it, Tamil brought to Western countries to give them citizenship and directed them to escalate terrorist war and undermine Sinhalese countries by using other method like UN or under covert operation using espionage. By using espionage Western countries put down Sinhalese bloodily, and not one single Sinhalese was able to detect Western spies and Tamil Tigers who jointly carried out thousand terrorist attack in Colombo and other cities.
            Seriously looking what harm they did to Sri lanka, I advocated to build up nuclear weapons by having agreements with other countries and groups to supply them nuclear weapons in return get the needed funding . We can let go of colonial crime, but colonial crime have been repeated.

            Usual humbug on DNA. Ranaweera et. al. should sue you for misinterpreting their research findings.
            None of the DNA research that I have come across, except in web sites run by ‘Koti Diaspora, have confirmed that Sinhalayo came from Hindusthan.

            Can tell the truth to the don key but cannot force the don key to accept the truth.

            Now the ‘Yahapalana’ BPs gone, Prof. Raj Somadeva will start digging again and unearth more and more evidences to support that Sinhalayo evolved in this country and ‘Para’ Demalu have no roots here.

              “Now the ‘Yahapalana’ BPs gone, Prof. Raj Somadeva will start digging again and unearth more and more evidences to support that Sinhalayo evolved in this country and ‘Para’ Demalu have no roots here.”

              The Greek digged the Church also digged, and still the Earth spun its axis and orbited the Sun. Raj Somadeva can dig too, and suggest he tests his DNA and the mt-DNA Haplo Groups.

              This is what happens when one prostrates to monks thinking that they are the 3rd Gem of the Triple Gem, and ask for their blessings. Their IQ’s drop by the prostration effect,

              By the way, this is called , Buddha-Agama, Buddha’s Religion, in the Land. Looks like, the Enlightened Buddha is not blessing. Are the Para-monks blessing the Raj Somadeva. It so, tell the monks that they are Paras, based on scientific data, and get their DNA tested.

              In the end the truth prevails and science prevails over myths. See what happened in Europe 500 years ago,, with age of Reason and Enlightenment, where the mean IQ is about 21 points above the Paras.

              Will it take evolutionary time for the Paras to lose their imbecility?

                “In the end the truth prevails and science prevails over myths.”
                That is exactly what has happened. Myth was Sinhala race started with the arrival of Vijaya. The truth is at the time Vijaya arrived, Sinhalayo lived in this country and Anuradhapura was an urban center where Sinhalayo lived. Archeological evidences that provided proof that Sinhalyo evolved in this country were unearthed not only by Prof. Raj Somadeva. He brought additional evidences to the evidences provided by eminent archeologists Dr. P.E.P. Deraniyagala and Dr. S.U. Deraniyagala. Based on these new discoveries school text books on History have been changed. Only ‘Koti Diaspora’ will believe what you say with DNA data.

                  Can you get the “academic” Raj Somadeva’s DNA tested for mt-DNA Haplo groups?

                  1. Myth was Sinhala race started with the arrival of Vijaya.

                  This myth is perpetuated by Deepawamsa, and Mahawamsa, along with other myths, like the Monks are the 3rd Gem of the Triple Gem, requiring the imbeciles to prostrate.

                  In addition to the Para-Sinhala Tribe from their Homeland India, there were other Para-tribes from India, such as the Para-Lambakarna Tribe ( apparently they had big ears) , and they all coalesced into Sinhala.

                  This is where science, the scientific method, molecular biology and modern genetics testing come in, to sort out the myths from the truth.

                  The Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamil genetics are about the same, and different from the true Natives, Native Veddah Aethho, shown by the mt–DNA Haplo Groups.

              That is why I said Making enemy with Muslim are not helpful ,but it gives only victory to Tamil Tigers and their Western supporters.

      2. the judiciary has been interfered with and it is now being given orders as to how it should work and that it should even without a whimper on its part release all the ape patha criminals which include the members of the armed forces who have committed many a dastardly act of murder, rape, etc.
      3. the opponents who are mere political rivals are being taken on the flimsiest of charges, remanded and are then bailed out by the fewest of the few members of the said judiciary who have the balls to do so.
      4. gota the kallathoni, mass murderer one of the biggest the globe had seen on his and the SLPP election platforms promised to reduce the cost of living that the masses had to undergo.
      5..has it been reduced as promised.?

      “Professor, why did you choose to avoid mentioning Ranil tearing up Chandika’s ‘package’?”

      Of course you also suffered a short term amnesia, just after LTTE proposing the Interim Self Governing Authority (ISGA) Ranil was unceremoniously sacked by Chandrika.

    I had thought that between 80,000 – 100,000 people died during the civil war , nearly half of which are Tamils, a figure much above 20,000. Gotabhaya has not admitted to a high figure as Prof KD is trying to convey.

      It was a bloody good thrashing our boys gave that at Nanthikadal. No simpleton will ever underestimate our Army ever again.
      When the April 21st bombings took place, the Muslim community realized the grave mistake they had made and immediately started cooperating with the Army and the STF.

      Credit to them, for they decided not to take on the Lions and get bitten severely. As for the other Minority, the less said about them the better it is. Let’s just say they just never learn.

      Gota gave a figure 20000. Your generous figure is between 40,000 and 50,000. Why have you inflated the total death by 30,000? Is it in your interest to state higher figure? Are you going to make 30,000 bogus claim and become filthy rich?

    Only way Gota can absolve himself being called a Racist is by allowing National Anthem to be sung in both languages during the Independence Celebrations. Has he got the guts to do this? This would be a strong signal to the Racist and also to the International Community. If this is not done at the next UN session this issue is going to be a strong point for those who oppose the Government’s position.

      Buddhist,
      National Anthem should be sung in Sinhala and Veddas’ language because Vedda Eththo lived with Sinhalayo from time immemorial and they are the native people in Sinhale. There is no justification to sing the National Anthem in a language brought to this country by Dravida slaves.

        Sinhalayo from time immemorial! A language and people that only came into definite existence from 8AD. A people largely descended from Indian immigrants , again largely from Tamil South Indians , half of them from low caste/untouchable Tamil indentured labour /slaves who were imported into the island and settled along the southern and western littorals , by the Portuguese/Dutch colonials to do service work and work as indentured labour in the huge southern spice estates. The Sinhalese language may have evolved in the island but it evolved from the local Tamil dialect that got mixed up with Pali/Prakrit and Sanskrit due to the arrival of Buddhism. Everything about you Sinhalese reeks of Tamils and is derived largely from the Tamils , yet all these hatred for the Tamils. A people suffering from some sort of hate and inferiority complex

        You keep on ignoring historical facts. If Sinhalayo are not from India (whether brought as slaves or otherwise), then why do they keep referring to their language as closely linked to Sanskrit?

        Eagle Eye, if I am to follow your thought process, Sinhalese as per Mahawamsa were decedents of a Lion. If you do not agree to this then they are from India. In both these cases the national anthem should be sung as a “Lions Roar” or in some other Indian Language. Sinhalese are also Indians.You choose the language.

            https://www.photius.com/rankings/national_iq_scores_country_ranks.html

            The intelligence scores came from work carried out earlier this decade by Richard Lynn, a British psychologist, and Tatu Vanhanen, a Finnish political scientist, who analysed IQ studies from 113 countries, and from subsequent work by Jelte Wicherts, a Dutch psychologist.

            Countries are ranked highest to lowest national IQ score.

            Bangla Desh 82

          Buddhist,

          Thivuwamsa (Vamsa of the Island – not the Vamsa of lamp) was written by the Tamils nuns based on the Tamils legends existed at that time. Tamil Nuns played “CARDINAL” role in spreading Buddhism in Ceylon, with the leadership of Manimekhala (Not Sangamitta). Sangamitta didn’t know Tamil to teach Buddhism for that time Tamil residents. Manimekhala worked with a sworn virulence to spread Buddhism because of the Hindu Parathai, her Grandma, who did the injustices to her mother and spoiled her mother’s married life with Kovalan. Manimkala’s one woman rebelling or determined fight was against another one woman, her grandma, who attempted forcefully preach Madhavi and Manimekhala (Daughter and granddaughter) dance and prostitution, a Hinduism based culture of that time. So Manimekhala played a decisive role in converting Hindu women voluntarily into nuns and preached them social justice against Hinduism’s caste based prostitution. Now it has gone wrong. Pillayar Pidikka Kurankai Mudinchuthu! So we all are waiting to Sinhala Thirunavukkarasar to be born to wipe out the Mahavamsa Sinhala Buddhist Modayaism from the Island.

          Tamil Nuns didn’t write of sleeping with lion. Mahanama copied some syllables from Thivuwamsa, to make his fantasy hallucination of the Bestiality Sex rubbish to have some backing up of true history. You understand, unlike the current Yellow Thavani Homo Balds, the Tamil Nuns, who wrote the Thivuwamsa would not have had even in their wildest dream the thought of sexing with lions. Mahanama, who is our hybrid Bald Eagle’s guru, invented this by an accident. While he was traveling from Andhra to Kanchi to Manipallavam, he happened to see in statues in Hindu temples that the Nagabhushana living with snakes, Kali sits on the Lion and Uma travels on Ox. This is where he let his imagination to fly beyond the Hindu myths. He thought, if the Hindu goddesses are identifying them with wild animal, he should go to the next step and having sex with those animals and having children. Then, why blame Eagle or Mahanama for everything?

      Lankan,
      Native Sinhalayo gave citizenship in Sinhale to Dravida slaves brought from Hindusthan by Portuguese, Dutch and British colonial parasites and abandoned here so that they can live in peace. But instead of living in peace with Native Sinhalayo these ‘Para’ BPs launched a terrorist campaign demanding a separate State called Eelam based on a bogus ‘Traditional Homeland’. So do not blame Sinhalayo for your own blunders.

      By the way:
      • What is it that the Sinhalayo are enjoying that the other communities are not enjoying because they are not Sinhala?
      • What is it that the minorities do not enjoy because they are the minority which the majority enjoys because they are the majority?
      • What is legally, constitutionally and legislatively given to the majority that is not given to the minorities”?

        Stupid racist third rate , there is no native Sinhalayo. 50% of your so called native Sinhalayo are descended from low caste Tamil imports , who arrived in the island during the Portuguese , Dutch era. This around 500 -300 years ago. The other 50% are a mixture of native Dravidian Semi Tamil Elu speaking Yakka, and Indian immigrants , ancient to medieval, again largely from the then Tamil country in India and some form what is now Bengal/Odisha. The only native element is the Yakka , that rest all imports from India. This is why the Sinhalese DNA is 70% Indian Tamil and 25% Bengali. Both Indian genes/DNA so where is the native? The Sinhalese language that only came into existence from around 8AD is a mixture of Tamil . Pali and Sanskrit . The Tamil element is the single largest contributor to Sinhalese around 35-40% of modern Sinhalese vocabulary is Tamil derived or from the native semi Tamil dialect Elu. This is even after the move to deliberately Sanskkritise Sinhalese. Out of these three languages only Tamil belongs to the region , the other two from the plains of north India. So where is the native element? The Sinhalese grammar, lexicon, syntax and grammar is purely derived from Tamil and so is the alphabet. Not from Pali nor Sanskrit. Everything about the Sinhalese people , from the food they ate, to their festivals , the goods they worship , the music , the dress reeks of Tamils or the Malayali , who were Tamil , until a few centuries ago, not any other Indian people . GO and take a hike. Sinhalese language may have evolved in the southern parts of the island , that does not mean it is native and the Tamil language , that gave birth to it and has a far older history in the island is not , just because around 80 million in Southern India also speak it

          What the hell are you talking about? up until portugese tamil language didnt exist. The tamils are a race created by europeans for slaves that were transported from india, they need to put them in one group so first they called them malabaris then they made up a word called tamil. The tamils language is something that developed later when the forest dwelling indian slaves mixed there language with the european languages like portugese and dutch and this language is known as pidgin which the tamils called tamil. Other than that tamils have no history, it was the europeans who made the race that claims to have a 10,000 year old history.

    At least the Professor accepts that devolution is not feasible for political reasons, regardless of Gota’s character. The way wars are fought, the loser gets nothing. Germany lost quite a lot of land after WWII, including all of its colonies. According to one estimate, Germany “forfeited 13 percent of its European territory (more than 27,000 square miles) and one-tenth of its population (between 6.5 and 7 million people).” And keep in mind, Germany was occupied for around 40 years afterwards. Tamils are much better off, comparatively speaking. They have not been deported or expelled, only some strategic land occupied. The smart move for Tamils now is to speak out against separatist ideology. Stop asking for devolution and it may even be granted. Devolution is easy when there is full integration, especially economic. For example, most people in Switzerland are quite wealthy. Devolution there is based on differences in language, not ethnicity. There is no desire to separate, since everyone is well-off. This is the model Sri Lanka should also aspire to.

Nasty piece of racist goods that wants all the best for him and his family but support racial discrimination , structural genocide and marginalisation of the island’s Tamils back home. Listen Sinhalese low life what has the just fight of the Tamils to win their rights in their own land , has got to do with Germans and German people during the Nazi era , when they were the aggressors? It is the Sinhalese and low life Sinhalese diaspora like you , who are the aggressors, who in the name of majoritarian policies are trying kill , marginalise , commit genocide and war crimes on the island’s Tamils and have done it . Within 72 years of independence Tamils have been reduced from around 28% to 15.6% . 1/3 of Tamil lands stolen by state sponsored ethnic cleansing of Tamils and colonisation. Around 300000 Tamil civilians killed , one million forced to flee , another one million deliberately made stateless . So far no one punished for all these crimes. It is Sinhalese who are the Nazis not Tamils understood third rate Pa-I-h. Switzerland has devolution don’t not try to twist their devolution. You mean that the Sinhalese have always considered Tamils as their enemies and fought a war against them , when they demanded for their just rights? Low life you are not fit to live

    A very good analysis Prof David.
    GR is telling the obvious that RW said before That is, those Tamils handed over to the army at checkpoints are dead. Neither mentioned how they died. Both of them know citizens are aware of the film where surrendered LTTE carders were blind folded and hands tied and shot in the back of their heads by soldiers of the army. People have also seen the photos many surrendered careers whose hands were tied and were naked in a dug ditch of water guarded by uniformed soldiers. GR and RW want the people to draw their own conclusion.

    Neither party will inquire into the war crimes committed by the LTTE or the SL Armed Forces as they and the majority of Sinhala and Tamils allied with GR and RW believe that all killings were part of the war. May be they have no knowledge of the Geneva Protocols I and II. Or may be they do not subscribe to those Protocols.

    SLPP want to win and also want a 2/3 majority in the next parliament either directly or by encouraging crossovers after the election. 2/3 majority in parliament for the President’s party. Such a situation will be like the 1972 and 1977 governments whose actions lead to the civil war. Hopefully we will not repeat the conditions once again.

    2/3 majority will not help GR and MR Government to escape from the war crimes and crimes against humanity though they both will be immune from prosecution during their Term Of Office.

      Ethirveerasingam, you state knowledge of the Geneva Protocols I and II. These apply to war between armed forces of different nations. The SL armed forces were not in a battle with a regulated armed force. They were battling cyanide clad, suicide bombing murderous LTTE (Tamil) terrorists. You cannot white wash them by calling them rebels, freedom fighters etc. These LTTE murderers were not bound by any Geneva protocols!!! Young Tamils children were abducted and forced to the battlefront – where were the Geneva Protocols for 20/30 years? Are you going to bring all the LTTE terrorist supporting rump now living abroad for prosecution for the war crimes and crimes against humanity? Where were all these Geneva protocols when JVP terrorists got what they deserved – was it because they were Sinhala terrorists? Americans and western forces kill terrorists in Iran, Iraq, Libya etc., in foreign soil – what Geneva protocols!

      Aren’t you going to celebrate tonight?
      Will Boorish Johnson make a “Tryst with Destiny” speech?

      “Long years ago we made a tryst with destiny, and now the time comes when we shall redeem our pledge, not wholly or in full measure, but very substantially.

      At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, Britain will awake to life and freedom. ………………………………………………………”

    Couple of points……..

    If KD wants Gota to respond positively to his requirements, why doesn’t KD advise Tamils and Muslims how to respond? Should they shun Gota as they did at the Nov elections (based on advise from their political leaders – noting KD also wanted Gota defeated) or should they engage him and strengthen his hand to deliver a more pragmatic outcome?

    To my recollection Gota didn’t admit to a number (of deaths). What he said was that those who are “missing” have been conscripted to LTTE and (may have) died (as a result of being members of a banned terrorist outfit). Just like many missing JVPers whose whereabouts are nobody’s topic today.

      Let’s forget KD, Tamils, Muslims, …..for a minute.
      Gota being the self proclaimed strong man, Kamal being a … whatever he is, Shavendra Silva being the Vanni military strategist, and the armed forces has a history of mounting and undertaking the world’s largest humanitarian operation in the world rescuing the entire Vanni population, ……………… why cannot these
      rana-virus be sent to China and rescue the entire Chinese population from the latest pandemic the coronavirus.

      By the way who is going to rescue 21 Million from Rana-Virus?

        Kali,

        No one asked anybody to kneel. It is this stupid arrogance (possibly naively thinking there’s white Westerners and India are there to deliver) that lead to Nandikadal disaster. You have to constructively engage with the centre and the majority community if you need to find practical ways of finding and implementing solutions. External forces will not deliver it to you other than use you to fulfil their own agendas. It is your call mate to either continue to live in the margins or be partners of collective prosperity.

    If I were to sum up Prof Kum’s article, I understand the author saying Prez Gota’s approach is fine but he should not be given a two thirds majority which may lead to a bad regime. If people of the likes of Prof. Kum were to mean what he writes now does Prez Gota necessarily need a support of a two thirds majority from “flower bud” party alone? NO. I sincerely hope, as Prof. Kum implies, that Prez. Gota can run the show with a wider consensus putting behind the alleged weaknesses of his and others behind and even present and enact a Constitution which will have the widest acceptance by our society. Prof. Kum! I may not be as optimistic as you but I hope and pray what you mean now will take place.

    “Gota is on record as having said devolution is not possible because the majority are opposed.”

    That is why I fully support colonial foreign rule like what we had before 75 years ago.
    Then we all are equal citizens. Ther is nothing called the ‘Majority’ or minority. We all will be just Sri Lankans, and such a state will unite everyone. The present state is akin to a cricket match having an umpire from one of the teams playing the match! A cricket match must have an independent umpire who does not have any connection to either team. The colonial or foreign rule is like having an independent umpire managing all communities of the country.

      Oh yeah, we were so equal, most of the schools deliberately put in the northern tamil side so only tamils get an education, while Sinhalese are robbed of there land when they cannot pay taxes, plus dont forget how we were so equal when we had whole villages worth of people massacred at the british hands. Its easy for tamils to like colonial rule because during british rule they were at the top while the Sinhalese were at the bottom and during other european invasions when the Sinhalese were fighting back all the tamils did was clean the backsides of their new western masters. So of course as a tamil you would say yes to colonial rule in this Sinhalese country.

        “while Sinhalese are robbed of there land when they cannot pay taxes,”

        What are you doing with the same land now even 72 years after independence was given on a platter?

        Why haven’t you dismantle colonial estates and redistribute the land to the poor people so that they don’t have to go to Medieval Middle East Kingdoms where they don’t have to be mistreated, humiliated, nailed sent the corpse in coffins?

        “Its easy for tamils to like colonial rule because during british rule they were at the top while the Sinhalese were at the bottom ……. “

        Were the Tamils scre**** from the top while you were providing Kandyan hospitality to all and sundry?

        Portuguese recruited 3000 Lascarins (indigenous soldiers from south who fought for the Portuguese) took them to North to fight the demelas. Perhaps your ancestors would have gone with the Portuguese soldiers while the top commanders stayed back enjoying Kandyan hospitality in the south. Check your DNA, unsurprisingly you might find a substantial % of Suddah DNA in your blood.

        “…………………………….. all the tamils did was clean the backsides of their new western masters.”

        However you seems to travel all the way to Middle East Medieval Kindoms to clean Arab bums.

    Sri Lanka will never know peace, and can never progress, until it has leaders who will unite the country, treat all people equally, and NEVER uses the majority as a tool to win votes, favors, and cause friction.

    That will never happen, unfortunately. Every time we overcome one ethnic problem, another raises it’s head setting us back again, and again. Politicians are too selfish and cannot put the country above their own interests.

    Kumar David, You say, “The Sinhalese are strongly opposed, at this moment, to any devolution to the Tamils and Muslims in their respective areas of domicile. That’s a fact, let’s face it!”

    Put yourself in the shoes of these “Sinhalese” and imagine that two mobs invading your home and occupying them, saying this is our house.

      Your house is only the southern 5 provinces . The north and east are the house of the Eelam Tamils , which two mobs Sinhalese and the fake Arab South Indian origin immigrants are now trying to steal and claim as theirs . Imagine this , the plight of the Eelam Tamils and put yourself in their shoes. Vernon Mathes ? Who are you ? Some illegal Kerala Christian immigrant , now calling your self a Sinhalese.

        The north and east which has remnants of Sinhalese civilization and which Sinhalese armies fought for is the land of the eelam tamils who just immigrated as slaves with the portugese and as laborers with the british, who has been nothing but a useless heap of dung that has not contributed to the country in any way, the north and east belong to them? keep dreaming.

    “1. Gota is on record as having said devolution is not possible because the majority are opposed.

    2. I (KD) agree that this is factually correct. The Sinhalese are strongly opposed, at this moment, to any devolution(Ridicules! Obscene words! !) to the Tamils and Muslims in their respective areas of domicile. That’s a fact, let’s face it! “

    Some times we have to feel disappointed with Prof. Kumar’s juvenile theories. This is what you call in Tamil as biting the grass bade tips, not knowing the real taste of the grass.

    What is making Prof. Kumar to conclude that Majority race is opposing any solution? It is hasty assumption. Can Professor Kumar compare and contrast that how many Sinhala Buddhists participate with JR on his Kandy walk against the Banda Chelva Pact and how many took to road to burn, rape, loot and murders of Tamils when JR said starving Tamils is a thrilling entertainment to Sinhalese? Can KD tell us, why, while the entire south was in the 1983 Black July, it had nothing to do with any solutions for Tamils, but only few Kaadies and Moddies walked with Junius Richard to Kandy Buddhist temple. How is he explaining this phenomenon? Can Prof. Kumar explain to us why so far no one has achieved Chandrika’s 62% when she told that she wanted to make peace with Mr. Pirapaharan, though she wanted only to make “War for Peace” and establish her own War Crimes in Chemani, Kaithady, Navali……….. Why Old King did broke away from the coalition’s minor party SLFP (Yahapalanaya) and formed Slap Party, where the major Party (UNP) had promised to put to the Sinhalese a Draft Constitution for referendum with a solution to Tamils? Why he could stand behind the UNP? What is answer Prof. Kumar has to Sampanthar when, recently, he had repeatedly claimed, the governments of Richard. P, Aka Vaalaiththodam Sr, CBK, Old King and Yahapalanaya governments have mooted a solution for Tamils with Federal features.

  • 2

    I hear that American & Indian Diplomats have recently told to this government that there was always a proposal to give federal solution to Tamils and if King gets that done, Sinhalese will not oppose it. Further America has told to King that he should not to split US and the Sinhala majority by Aanduwa’s ill will Aappa Diplomacy.
    Does Prof. Kumar remembers Sampanthar’s classic speech in parliament right after LG election where Old King Campaigned for Local Government victory with a slogan of “You (Sinhala Buddhists) want one country or you want Two Countries?” Is there any use for Sinhala Buddhists to answer to a question of Constitution in LG election? Now Old King Modaya is saying he needs the constitutions redone. Then why couldn’t he have stay with Ranil and had it done the way Sinhalese wanted? Isn’t Only Power what he wants? Didn’t Sinhala Buddhists vote to Siri Mao when she said that she was going to moon to bring rice? What was the racial issue made her to win that election? If King says to Sinhala Buddhists that if he give a Federal Government solution to Tamils then he too can bring abundant of rice for the Biriyani and Arrack, then, why Prof. K thinks the Mahajan would not vote for him in the coming election? Why Old Royals did said to International Community that it was not Sinhala Buddhists Opposing to the peaceful living, but it was only Terrorist Pirapaharan opposing and if they help to annihilate Leader Pirapaharan then he could give a solution to Tamils above 13+? Then where Prof. K is inventing from that Sinhala Buddhist are the new terrorists opposing the peace and the Royals government has to ask International community to annihilate Sinhala Buddhists so that King can give a solution to Tamils?

    The point here is that now the international community understands that it is not Sinhala Buddhists, but it the criminal Sinhala Intellectual political leaders and Kandy Ayatollahs are constantly manipulating and maneuvering the Sinhala Buddhists’ political landscape for the Sinhala Intellectual Leaders to gain power.
    Take a look how they are playing this game from the start.
    1. Solomon West Ridgeway Dias started with Sinhala Only in 24 hours, to win the election.
    2. Junius Richard walked to Kandy and toppled that government and had torn off the B-C pact.
    3. Weeping widow, Siri Mao used the death of Solomon West Ridgeway Dias Pandaranayam’s death to win election. Then that uneducated woman ran the country to wreck
    4. Dudley came then.
    5. Siri Mao won back by Moon Rice. She did it again to the country
    6. Junius Richard came with 5/6 majority and made him the emperor of Wildlife Sanctuary, SinhaLE Lankawe.
    7. Richard. P (Vaalaiththodam Sr) Came telling that he gets IPKF out within 24 hours, giving arms and money to Tigers.
    8. CBK came with the promise of Peace with Mr. Pirapaharan.
    9. Entire Sinhala Buddhists Modayas knows that Old King came only by giving money to Pirapaharan.
    10. Current King came to power by setting up a trap on Muslims Modayas, though Hakeem, Richard and the spies toiled hard to annihilate the Tamils. (KD put Muslims and Tamils in one basket; it doesn’t work for Sinhala Buddhists & Muslim Leaders)
    So where this conclusion is coming from, if he has to win the election, King has to tell in the parliament election campaign that he will be annihilating more Tamils, so vote for him? Then why won’t they appoint Chandrika as their election Manager? She knows make peace with Mr. Pirapaharan.

    Can I ask a question from Prof. K? How much he negotiated from the $18 and keeping out of CT without even writing a comment once in a while, but when he came back he is writing this radicular Essay?

You are calling sinhalese as chauvinist and Tamils are not racist.

    Comparisons with Lincoln, Mandela and Gandhi are inexact. They were not directly responsible for the killings of large numbers of people. The more pragmatic reason is that the wealth of the Rajapakses accumulated through illegal means cannot be protected unless Sinhala chauvinism which guarantees votes is kept alive. The next generation-naval- waits in the wings. Their accountability for killings of Thajudeen and others is warded off as a result of the power generated through Sinhala nationalism. It is best for the Rajapakse to keep the ethnic pot boiling. Hence, the speculations of KD will remain mere speculations.

    Gotha is an Angry , Hungry ( Power) and short tempered man. If you ask him nicely how are you he will answer U….. Putha why are you asking me and that was why he was kept out of campaigning for the election. If he goes to the UN session ( he may not be allowed ) with Shavendra we we can win hands down ( i dont know if Somass will understand ) and Sinhala Lanka will pay a HEAVY PRICE oh sorry a TERRIBLE PRICE as Soma the a.. hole doesnt like the word HEAVY.
    Sinhala Lanka is stuck with a highly volatile man for the next 5 years no where to go nothing to do. The reason why he admitted that he and his ment killed all the missing ones was because he was cornered. For him who he kills and why he kills is his God given right. It is over to you UN .

    It can’t be denied that Tamils were brought to Srilanka by colonial masters as slaves naming them coolies.Years gone by with srilankan influence they became more civilised and had free education government hand outs. food. school books, clothing and free education up to univercity level.which they could not dream in India.Is this discrimination.? If Srilanka to develope economically bring the whole country under one law no seperatate states .One national anthem in the Countrie’s language Sinhala, importanly because we do not Celebrate colonial slavery in lanka.I think if Tamils need a future in Srilanka they have to remember what British said to them”minority can not be a majority” So Join hands to bring prosperity with unity and the will to work together.Good on you.

        justice,
        Tamils in Tamil Nadu do not recognize so called ‘Sri Lankan Tamils’ as Tamils. In fact there are no Tamils in Sinhale. The official term for Dravidians brought from Hindusthan is ‘Demala’. All the official publications use that term. We will insist that same term should be used in English and Demala documents. It is ridiculous to have different terms in different languages.

      So Christine,

      I take it that either you are of white stock , or converted to Christianity by the white colonial masters or a Racist gutless Sinkalam hiding behind an English Name.

      Now then Sinkalam let us deal with you rubbish coming from a tiny brain.

      1) It can’t be denied that Tamils were brought to Srilanka by colonial masters as slaves naming them coolies.

      *** You stupid Sinkalam get your facts right before you speak. Facts cant be denied and yes the Estate Tamils were brought from India not the Tamils who had thier Own Kingdom in the North & East. During this rule we built famous Temples such as Nallur , Koneswaram , Thiruketheeswaram but your tiny brain wont understand these

      2) Years gone by with srilankan influence they became more civilised and had free education government hand outs. food. school books, clothing and free education up to univercity level.which they could not dream in India.Is this discrimination.

      *** You know you are half Lion and half human born to mixed parentage ( how lovely) when made love to by a lion . So what is the Sinkala indfluence other than killing. If you had Free Education why did the Sinkala Government intruduce Standardisation unable to compete with Tamil Schools in the North.

      3) If Srilanka to develope economically bring the whole country under one law no seperatate states .One national anthem in the Countrie’s language Sinhala,

      *** Bloody primitive language. ” Ayiram Malargale Malarungal ”

      4) importanly because we do not Celebrate colonial slavery in lanka.I think if Tamils need a future in Srilanka they have to remember what British said to them”minority can not be a majority” So Join hands to bring prosperity with unity and the will to work together.Good on you.

      *** You stupid how can you celebrate Colonial Slavery other than Grieve.

      We know that half the present Sinhalese population are descended from low caste /untouchable South Indian Tamil slaves imported into the island by the Portuguese and Dutch colonials and not the Sri Lankan Tamils. It is recorded history. Do not try to twist and rewrite history Sinhalese racist. Now their Sinhalised descendants are the biggest anti Tamils beating the anti Tamil drum. One of them is Berewa( Paraiyan) Muthukarupan Wimal Weerawansa who is very busy beating the anti Tamil drum ( Bera/Parai) . Funny a Berewa( Paraiyan or Puallaiyan) beating the Drum and dancing to Para Melam to an anti Tamil beat. This is what Parians usually do during funerals. Even DNA does not support your fairy tale. Present day Sinhalese share a 70% DNA with Indian Tamils , whereas Sri Lankan Tamils only share a 17% DNA with Indian Tamils , proving who is largely descended from Indian Tamil immigrants , low castes , slaves or other immigrants. You can lie but DNA will never lie. Good try. Now go and dance to with the Muthukarrupan Berewa , who is very busy beating his ancestral Bera. ” Dum Dum hate Tamils” Dum Dum Tamil is second to Sinhalese” Dum Dum see what I did to the Tamil language in Mannar” Dum Dum I am a crazy Berewa now claiming to be a Sinhalese Aryan

    The main issue based on national anthem is weak leadership. To date neither the President Gota or PM Mahinda have said anything about this. If this continues and if the National Anthem is sung only in Sinhala at the next independence day celebrations it would become a very strong point in the hands of those who are against SL Govt at the next UN session. Are the Rajapakse brothers so stupid?
