      Dr. Deepika Udagama – Chairperson – HRCSL,

      Para-Sinhala :Buddhism” in Lanka, is a cult, not Buddhism.

      Mahavamsa- An Insult To The Buddha! By Sharmini Serasinghe

      https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/mahavamsa-an-insult-to-the-buddha/

      In this “wonderland” called Sri Lanka, and in this day and age, one still comes across ‘academically’ educated, and supposedly intelligent ‘Buddhists’, but sadly lacking in wisdom, who reverently believe, that the Buddha walked out of his mother’s womb, and walked seven steps, while lotuses blossomed, under his feet!

      These very same supposedly educated, and intelligent ‘Buddhists’ also believe, that the enormous indentation, resembling a footprint on a boulder, at Adam’s Peak (Sri Pada to ‘Buddhists’), to be that of the Buddha. This would be in keeping with the conviction that the Buddha, was as tall, or perhaps even taller, than the Avukana Buddha statue, which stands above 40 feet (12 meters) in height!

      Then, there is the ‘Dalada Maligawe’ in Kandy; most Buddhists believe, the tooth relic housed within, belonged to the Buddha. Some adorn the ‘tooth casket’ with mounds of gold jewelry, fervently believing, that they would earn merit, to the value of the gold they offer. The thought of donating the value of this gold, to feed and help, the poor, sick and the needy, that would be far more meritorious, never cross their minds!

      There hangs a controversial question, over the authenticity of this ‘sacred tooth’. But then again, to those ‘educated and intelligent Buddhists’, devoid of wisdom, if the Buddha, was taller than the Avukana statue, and had a giant footprint, as on Adam’s Peak, then this ‘huge tooth’ could be his!

        Stupid gona (bull)!. Have you seen the size of Christ at the mountain top in Brazil or the size of the woman at the statue of liberty. Only a “mandabhuddika” (low intelligence) would view the world like this amarasiri whom I believe is a christian tamil of lesser origin could do. Go fly your kite! CT should set a minimum level of intelligence for bloggers allowed at its website. God please help this entity to see the world with an adults eye!

    This is laughable.
    Why does not the HRCSL go north and investigate the daily “crimes” against Human Rights committed by the military and police against citizens.
    Is the HRCSL aware that citizens are deprived of their homes, lands, livelihoods, businesses, places of worship, livestock etc. arbitrarily by state actors who have made them ‘third class’ citizens in their land of birth.
    Citizens are shot dead on pretext of maintaining law & order; ancient Buddhist sites are ‘discovered’ in places of worship, business, agriculture, animal husbandry etc.
    Buddha statues are erected in sites of existing other religious worship which are also vandalised.
    Saffron wearers prevent state personnel from enabling lawful activities.
    In the president’s own electorate, cattle belonging to long time breeders are shot dead and pastures ‘captured’ by new encroachers.

    Why don’t MPs visit electorates on publicised days to inquire into problems of citizens, instead of visiting other countries.
    President Premadasa’s Mobile Presidential Secretariats solved a lot of problems of citizens, earlier.

    Human rights Kandy and the rogues who met up the foreign group who went to get informations on the riots, the group was fed with lies over lies propaganda of the riots saying “this is a Buddha country we are peace loving , nothing of that happened here “‘ the Bull shit Lies was told.”
    Same old lies as always , the Buddha country and peace lovers , under the sarong guns and knives and blood thirsty of Minorities .

    It all politics in SL. No human rights no animal rights. Rights will be protected if people do their duties . when duties are not done rights are violated. It is more to do with ethics.

    What was the Human Rights Commission doing during the episodes of the killings of the Sinhalese youth and the Tamils? It is just a technique of white-washing the political elite bent on violence in order to establish hegemonist rule through rousing up Sinhala-Buddhist nationalism. The present Chairman had her roots in the previous commissions and carries their baggage with her. For the good of the country, one hopes a new direction is taken and something meaningful is done by a toothless commission. At least, revealing the truth may have consequences. The ploy is to hide it in the hope that it would go away, as it did in the case of the JVP youth who were killed and dumped on burning tyres. The killings of the Tamils will not go away despite the hiring of some English white Lord who keeps reducing the numbers of those killed.

    Sarath Weerasekera is an idiot politician. He is dumb as an ass hole. He travels overseas with Sinhala expatriate money and have good times overseas with plenty drinks, ladies etc. Sarath Weerasekera’s wife and Gota’s wife are sisters, He was an ex SLFP MP. So he has a vested interest in getting MR and Gota back to power. He wants to re establsih the corrupt, dishonest, murderous government of MR, Gota, Basil. Chamal, Namal, Yoshita, Shashendra etc. Sri Lankans should not trust this most dishonest, despicable SLFP Politician Sarath Weerasekera. Go to hell Admiral of the rear, Sarath Weerasekera.

    Why should HRC of SL or anybody investigate HR violations upon HR violators?

    HRC of SL had better deal with MMDA rather than involving in silly matters that should be done by police or by the government.

    Take the then minister for law & order RW to the task of answering the question.

    All repressive states have human rights commission and a number of other commissions like the missing persons commission, financial crimes commission etc etc. But these provide the veil behind which all manner of crimes take place. Is this lady providing cover for state crimes.

      Mama Sinhalam
      Yes this lady’s Humanrights office vehemently denied that there was Riots in Kandy against the Minority Muslims.
      There you go!! When these groups tell lies like
      ” This is a peace loving Buddha land and we love each other”
      So what kind of integrity they have to investigate.
      All a Bullshit Propaganda in the Buddhaland.
      Guns and Knives Under the Sarongs to Bleed the Minority.
      Is this woman for real or a spokes person for the Lying HRC KANDY SL.??
      Whitewashing the Minority Riots and Playing double game.
      Can you trust the Murderous Liars?

    The Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL) has invited written information and evidence from persons and/or any other interested party affected by the violence that occurred in Kandy recently
    .
    Chairperson, HRCSL, Dr. Deepika Udagama:
    Please bear in mind that the victims may be scared to come forward fearing retribution next time round.
    They will not like their skull crushed in routine operations by the peace keeping army.

    HRC is a cover up commission just like the LLRC. It covered up the Suntheralingam report under Radhika Coomaraswamy. Manouri Mut. was Chairwoman when a whole manner of transgressions took place.The present one comes tainted with the association with former commissions. Let us hope she makes a bold change. Commissions in Sri Lanka, like the bond commission, are a waste of time. They allow crooked politicians a means of whitewashing their misdeeds and continuing to do further crimes.

    The affected Muslims mass wants direct legal action. There is no need for a Human Right Violation investigation or Transitional Justice. Every crime scene, Muslim crowd has recorded with cell phones. They have a good database of each every affected place and each every person did it. If there are too many cases to handle, just advertise for volunteer lawyers and judges to handle this. Mix them up with government paid officials to keep the process for government’s standard. There are many ways to do it. Put an honest will and do it. Pay them for the loss of property. If keeping the criminals in prison is expensive, just withdraw their civil rights and order them that they should not attend any political meetings or see a MP or MPC or MLC. Enforce it with strong Law and Order process. This is a political crime and that will teach them the lesson they were seeking.

    Paranagama Commission collected the Tamil victims information and handed it over to CID to suppress the claims. UNHRC forced the notorious Paranagama Commission go closed.

    So there is no need for the government to start on political marketing from the Muslim property loss.

    Sure thing, these are White Wash Commissions. Crimes have been committed from 1958. There are pictures of persons dancing around and attacking minorities. There have been no criminal prosecutions. Let us not have these sham commissions that white wash crimes. Let there be real prosecutions of the criminals in courts under criminal procedure. That is required by the law of the land. There is no lack of evidence as to who committed the crimes.Many are traceable to powerful politicians. They aided and abetted these crimes. It is no secret that Gamini Dissanaike urged on the thugs who killed Tamils during Black July. BBS is the dog pack of a politician. So, let us stop playing games and prosecute these people instead of have stupid commissions. They have lost their credibility.

    If Deepika Udugama can reveal who is funding her Organization, that would be great. I know UN gets funds from different countries promised to direct at certain projects. May be by those who promote human rights to the world. I know when a similar problem came up with Rohingyas, UNHCR tried to go theri. Myanmar said No way. In Sri lanka, MY3 is cranky, Because of what is happening he cannot go for asking SAMMADAM.

    Before appointing any more useless commissions, bring law and order to the country and order the attorney general’s department, police dept. , justice department, judges, courts, all armed forces to do their duty properly without fear or prejudice.
    Stop government politicians from interfering into law and order business and leave them to do their jobs.
    It’s the influential political people who always spoil the law makers and bend laws according to their whims and fancies.
    Stop these wrong things from happening before appointing any more eyewash commissions !

    We have seen enough of them for far too many years and have no confidence in them at all and all the commission reports are either thrown into the waste paper baskets or collecting dust somewhere.
    No actions were taken in regard to any damn reports…everything is being done to cheat the people only.

    Thrishu, You have got the wrong end of the stick. The statue in a high mountain in Brazil is a man made one, erected there. Jesus never came on top of that mountain and left his live image there as you perhaps assume. Many such statues of Saints can be seen in Sri lanka road sides and churches, similarly some sculptor may have carved out an image of a foot print on top of Adam’s Peak and obviously another religious fanatic might have spread this yarn and I have heard that the other foot print is in another country. No wonder we are nicknamed as’ sinhalaya modaya’ . But I don’t think Brazilians are so naive as to believe that Jesus stood up there and some one photographed him live.

    Yes I too have heard that ‘Admiral of the Rear’ Sarath Weerasekera is a great womanizer and corruption filled politician. Srini Mayadunne is right. Just like his brother in law Gota Sarath Weerasekera is a dumb asshole. He is desperate in bringing back the corrupt Rajapakse govenment back to power.
