Jehan Perera Stokes Fires Of Tamil Racism Again

Velupillai Prabhakaran, the sociopathic Rottweiler unleashed by the Tamil Vellahla leadership to fetch their bone of Eelam, is no longer there to bark, bite, or grab Tamil children on their way to school. In the absence of any one else surfacing to replace ruthless Tamil racism and hate politics, C.V. Wigneswaran, the Chief Minister, seems to have stepped in to fill the vacuum. Like Prabhakaran his aim is to shine as the “sole representative of the Tamils”, eclipsing his political sponsors in the TNA. As an English-speaking, Saivite, Jaffna Vellahla extremist he represents the worst elements of what went wrong with Tamil politics in the post-Independent era.

Like all Tamil politicians, his standard political tactic is to blame the Sinhalese for all the evils bred in the womb of Jaffna. Diverting attention away from the evils of caste-ridden oppression that dehumanised Jaffna society is a prime necessity for Jaffna politicians to cover-up their heinous past. Wigneswaran’s latest diversion is to blame the Security Forces for the rise of drug addiction among the Tamil youth. P. K. Balachandran of the Indian Express wrote : “Wigneswaran, like other Tamil politicians, blames the army and the police for rising drink and drug addiction among Tamil youth in the post-war era. He has also alleged that the Security Forces are behind the rising crime in the North.” (Indian Express — August 30, 2016 ). Well. what else is new in Jaffna politics? As I have said earlier, whenever Prabhakaran had constipation, the Tamils blamed “the Sinhala-government” for not sending Basmati rice!

Wigneswaran’s ideological affinities with Prabhakaran, Swamy Premananda, the Tamil rapist who is also accused of murder, and Arumuka Navalar, the religious guru of Vellahla Saivites, guarantee that he is most likely to sabotage and resist negotiations to make compromises work for peaceful co-existence. However, as a Saivite of Jaffna, his loyalties are to Arumuka Navalar, the Hindu revivalist who preached that non-believers should be killed and if the Jaffna Tamils can’t kill them personally they must hire someone else to do the job for them. And if they can’t do either they must migrate. It is this blood-thirsty cult that gripped the minds of the Saivite, Jaffna Vellahla extremists who dominated and steered peninsular politics all the way to Nandikadal.

Besides, Wigneswaran’s alignment with the Indian Vishawa Hindu Parisad (VHP) does not augur well for the future of non-Hindu Muslims and the Sinhalese. He combines in him the fascist Saivite cult of Arumuka Navalar and the Indian VHP – a deadly combination that threatens the best efforts of all peace activists. If the Wigneswaran strand of extremism gains the upper hand in Jaffna, with the backing of the Tamil Diaspora, then the people of Jaffna should get ready to trek all the way back to Nandikadal one more time.

Wigneswaran is showing no signs of letting up. He is consistently stoking the past to raise the anti-Sinhala-Buddhist hate politics. He is reverting to hate politics because he has nothing else to offer the Tamil people. He does not even bother to utilise the state resources available to him to serve the immediate needs of the Tamil people. Like most Tamil politicians he is obsessed with anti-Sinhala politics, brushing aside the much needed economics. He is behind the Tamil People’s Council, (TPC), which was launched on December 12, 2015, as an alternative to the TNA, according to Tamil political analysts.

Right now TPC is making preparations to launch an anti-Government “Tamil uprising” (whatever form it takes) on September 14, states the TamilNet, the rabid mouthpiece of Tamil extremism. This “uprising” is to coincide with the September sessions in Geneva and also the arrival of Ban Ki-Moon. Of course, this means that Wigneswaran’s TPC has decided to revert to confrontational politics at a time when the imperatives of the post-Nandikadal politics demand more sober and rational approach to resolve sensitive issues. Jaffna is resorting to the same old game of pushing the electorate to aggressive Tamil racism in an attempt to sabotage the attempts of the Tamil parties willing to find accommodation within the pragmatic parameters of attainable politics. The political agenda of the TPC is aimed primarily at undermining the TNA’s moves to find compromises.

The TPC and TNA are now running against each other in an electoral competition to retain their vote base. The TNA seems to be the less aggressive party with an understanding of the extent to which it can go. They have grasped the heavy pressures of the international community and they know that they can go only thus far and no further. But the Wigneswaran-Gajendran Ponnambalam extremists in the TPC wing of Tamil politics, backed by the Prabhakaranist elements in the Tamil Diaspora, are manoeuvring to drag Jaffna back to the failed Vadukoddai agenda.

Wigneswaran is playing with fire when he gambles with Tamil racist extremism once again. Does he know what bloody route it will take if his extremism turns violent and takes the same Vadukoddian path? Does he know where it will end? Does he know how many more Tamil children will be dragged in to pursue his political fantasies? After Prabhakaran, is he going to be the next grim grave digger of Jaffna? With his aggressive Tamil extremism he is also forcing political players to take sides. Not surprisingly, Jehan Perera has decided to join Wigneswaran’s bandwagon. In doing so he has returned to his failed past of joining hands with the extreme wing of Tamil politics. His diastrous record proves that he never had any viable solution to the national issues, except appeasement of Tamil extremist demands at any cost. In his role as a foreign-funded peace-mudalali, with pretentious claims of having the keys to the kingdom of peace, he ended his futile days parroting Prabhakaranist politics of all-or-nothing which is the current stand of Wigneswaran.

Perera’s latest hijinks is to repeat Wigneswaran’s accusation that the entry of Sinhala students to Jaffna University is “cultural colonisation”. He also agrees with Wigneswaran who claims that the admission of Sinhala students is an attempt to change the demographic composition of the Tamils in the North. (Colombo Telegraph — July 25, 2016). Regurgitating the NPC statement, he states: “…the Northern Provincial Council issued a statement that identified the demographic pattern of the North and East after the war as being consciously changed and students from other provinces being admitted in large numbers into Jaffna University.”

Endorsing it as valid evidence he adds : “The statement issued by the Northern Provincial Council and signed by both its Chief Minister and Opposition Leader, and which cannot simply be dismissed as being the political maneuverings of extremists, contains feelings and facts that need to be taken seriously.” It is not surprising to find that Perera’s NPC (National Peace Council) parrots the politics of Wigneswaran’s NPC (Northern Provincial Council.) Moves for reconciliation will go nowhere with the two NPCs working in tandem to push Tamil racism to the extreme. If this Perera knows the ABC of race relations, just not in Sri Lanka but across the globe, he should be aware that intransigent identity politics pushing extreme religio-ethnic agendas have been the primary cause of violence and global instability. The biggest threat to human rights and peace stems from the likes of Donald Trumps and Wigneswarans. Perera’s politics has been to defend and justify mono-ethnic extremism as the way to peace and stability. He tried this formula with his favourites in the LTTE, all of which sank with his political heroes to the bottom of Nandikadal. His theories were no better than the fictitious doctorate he conferred on Anton Balasingham.

In joining Wigneswaran he has started his old game of backing “Dr.” Anton Balasingham and his master, the Tamil Pol Pot. From now on one can expect this Perera to labour indefatigably to back the venomous racism of Wigneswaran. He is once again manufacturing excuses for “the political maneuverings of extremists” who are pushing politics of the North to mono-ethnic singularities at the expense of democratic pluralism. In other words, he is saying that it is legitimate for the North to reserve the Jaffna university for the Tamils as the introduction of multi-ethnic multi-culturalism would disturb the demographic dominance of the Tamils. This is another way of saying that the north must be carved out as an exclusive mono-ethnic enclave for the Tamils only to maintain their supremacy, denying any space for non-Tamils, whether Muslims or Sinhalese, while the South must open their doors for multi-ethnic pluralism. Well, if it is ok for the North to preserve the North exclusively for the Tamils (their “feeling and facts …need to be taken seriously”, he says) then why is it not ok for the Sinhala supremacists to deny rights to non-Sinhalese? Why shouldn’t the Sinhalese maintain the land they claim to be theirs only for the Sinhalese? Shouldn’t “the feeling and the facts of the Sinhalese also be taken seriously”, eh Pachaya?

Those who argue for multiculturalism and pluralism can’t have it both ways. They can’t insist on legalising and institutionalising multi-culturalism and pluralism in the south and, in the same breath, insisting on legalising and institutionalising Tamil racism in the north. Their flawed notion of multi-culturalism is in preserving the North exclusively for the Tamils and, at the same time, opening the rest of the nation for the Tamils to have a foot in the south as well, on an equal footing as the rest – a right which they refuse to give other communities in the north. In short, there will no be no multi-culturalism in the North. Jaffna is to be a territory that will be preserved for the Vellahla elite. Anyone “outsider” stepping in Jaffna will be accused of interfering with minority rights. But the South must open their doors for pluralism, including the Tamils, in addition to the domain they claim to be their exclusive property. Drawing borders to demarcate ethnicity is racism. Opening societies for all communities to co-exist peacefully is pluralism. Multi-culturalists must get their definitions right and decide, once and for all, whether they want mono-ethnic singularities or liberal and humane pluralities.

Moves for reconciliation will go nowhere with the two NPCs working in tandem to push Tamil racism to the extreme. All the punditry of our Perera in the past has failed to deliver results of any value to the war-weary people. Not a single of his partisan theories, cooked up by his NPC, ever worked to bring peace to the victims of the Vadukoddai War. He was manufacturing theories to rake in more dollars to fatten his bank account and not to save the victims of the war waged by his “Dr.” Anton Balasingham and his master. Perera unashamedly played the devious role of an unscrupulous liar deliberately distorting realities and hard facts to boost the war-mongering Tamil Pol Pot. Now he is starting his theoretical jiggery-pokery all over again to stoke the embers of racism for him and his fellow-peace-mudalalis to profit from the misery of another ethnic conflagration.

This, of course, is against the principle of guaranteeing non-recurrence of violence – one of the four objectives mandated in the Geneva Resolution. When our Perera joins hands with Wigneswaran it can only lead to recurrence of ethnic violence. He can’t argue for the implementation of Geneva Resolution and, in the same breath, back extreme racism, jumping into Wigneswaran’s bandwagon, which can only lead to recurrence of Tamil violence. Besides, he boasts of a being a committed “stakeholder” of the Yahapalanya regime. Doesn’t he know that when he sides with Wigneswaran he is undermining his prime “stakeholder”, Ranil Wickremesinghe, who is putting pressure on Rajavarothiam Sampanthan to stop the scheduled “Tamil uprising”. It is apparent that our Perera is aiming to ride both horses – Wigneswaran and Wickremesinghe – simultaneously. Since both horses are running two different directions in which dustbin will this Pereras end up?

Consider, for instance, the following statement where he cites figures to project a picture of the Sinhala students getting an undue share of places in the Science Faculty of Jaffna University. Like Wigneswaran he resents the presence of 60 % Sinhala students in the Science Faculty (mark you, selected on merit). Perera and states : “It may be necessary to restructure the university admissions which is currently based on a national merit-based policy or permit the provincial councils to set up regional universities that can give priority to local area students.” In other words, he is saying that university authorities must reject merit as a criterion in selecting talented Sinhala and Muslims students and admit only local Tamil students to Jaffna University to retain the local ethnic demographics. Supposing I argued on these lines and insisted that all the universities in Sinhala areas should admit only local students, irrespective of their merits, what would he say? Won’t he and his moral maniacs raise a howl branding me as a racist? Isn’t he deliberately promoting racist politics to keep communities apart?

Perera’s formula of admitting only local students to universities is racism at its worst, promoting divisive politics to maintain the territorial claims based on ethnic composition. This is Perera’s version of “bhumiputra” politics. Compare this to the constructive experiment of His Excellency Judge C. G.Weeramantry. He proved that the future is in integration and not in separation. He funded a programme where undergraduates of the north and east were camped for a fortnight under one roof with the Sinhala students of the south. Initially, on the first day or two, there was reluctance and mental reservations about breaking out of the old prejudices. But at the end of the fortnight the students of all communities had bonded together and there were tears in their eyes on the eve of departure. Even in the Jaffna campus, despite the language differences, there was no bitter animosity among the Sinhala and Tamils students until the atavistic arrogance of Tamil racism raised its ugly head. So when Pacha Perera theorises to keep the communities apart, confined to Nazi-style campuses, he is pursuing the Prabhakaranist–Wigneswaranist racism and not the mandate of “non-recurrence” of racism leading to violence. The two formulas reveal the difference between a far-seeing savant serving the noble cause of bringing humanity together and a myopic idiot trawling theoretical mud to build walls to keep people apart. It is clear that even with his glass-bottom specs he cannot see beyond his nose. At best, he can see just far enough – and that too when he goes down on his knees — to lick the boots of Tamil Pol Pots and their successors.

In essence, Perera is arguing to retain the status quo in the north without changing pragmatically to meet the new realities of the post-Nandikadal era. As long as Prabhakaran was running peninsular politics the Tamils and NGOs were relying cockily on brutal violence as a means of dictating terms to the state. Without that leverage now they have fallen back on “the international community” to pull their chestnuts out. With Prabhakaran they were dependent primarily inhuman violence. Now they are relying on human rights. The Pereras and Saravanamuttus have been in both bandwagons, aiding and abetting Tamil extremism. They never argued for regime change of the Pol Potist regime for the liberation of Tamils.

They were always for retaining the violent and racist status quo in the north, whoever was in command. Their strategy was consistently to change regimes of the democratic south, or to weaken power at the centre for the West to manipulate and enforce their will. Their human rights campaigns have not gone beyond putting up defences for the racist fascism of the North, disguised as minority rights. Minority rights have no blanket cover to do what they want at any cost. Their rights end where the rights of the other minorities and the majorities begin. This means that the North must change and accept the new realities of co-existing in a pluralistic society. It means abandoning the failed policies of mono-ethnic arrogance aimed at overriding the aspirations of the other communities. It means live and let live. It means that the North must change — and change radically.

Perera, for instance, has been moving from village to village in the South holding seminars to change the South. But there was no commensurate programme to change the perspectives of the North. Besides, there were foreign-funds only for changing the South, not the North. For instance, Norwegian funds flooded the nation to even penetrate the Sangha – a grass root power identified as a primary source for manipulating local politics to serve foreign interests. At the height of the international intervention led by the Norwegians, the Norwegian Foreign Office sent a senior researcher, Iselin Frydenlund of the Peace Research Institute of Oslo (PRIO) to do field work in Buddhism in Sri Lanka. In 2004 –2005, she wrote a paper on “The Sangha and its relation to the peace process in Sri Lanka” for the benefit of the Norwegian team led by Erik Solheim, the Norwegian negotiator whose mission, inter alia, was to pick up the liquor bills left behind in five star hotels by our Pachayas “Dr”. Balasingham. Research was a part of the political process of Western powers to manipulate developing nations to serve their foreign interests. Both big corporations and the foreign offices of the West hire NGOs to develop strategies for socio-political interventions. It is cheaper for foreign powers to hire Pereras and Saravanamuttus than post their diplomats and their families in Colombo.

Politics in the Buddhist belt of South Asia, located in the underbelly of China, has received special attention, not only because of the emerging dynamics of the Big Power politics in the region but also because of the minorities clashing with the Buddhist majorities. Influencing the Sangha has become a political necessity for interventionist politics to succeed. So it is not surprising to find a Buddhist monk on the board of Catholic Pacha Perara’s NPC. Infiltrating and exploiting the Sangha has been one of the main tactics of all foreign funded NGOs. Even the former 75-rupee teacher at Nalanda College, A. T. Ariyaratne, became a billionaire, by packaging and marketing politicised Buddhism to foreign powers.

The upshot of this massive focus on Sinhala-Buddhism has been to demonise the South as racist bigots for not giving into the extremist demands of the North. But this is historically inaccurate. The South has a history of giving, though tardily, and each time it concedes the North increases its demands. The 13th Amendment is a case in point. After signing the Indo-Sri Lanka Agreement, with the help of India, they have shifted the ground to demand 13 plus. The history of the Northern demands is the same as that of Oliver Twist : the more you give the more they want. There will be Wigneswarans sprouting like mushrooms to push the North to the extreme until they get their Eelam. Constitutional exercises are mere eye-wash which will not take either the North or the South anywhere. Which constitutional formula can stop the the rise of Oliver Twists? Isn’t it time to say enough is enough?

The only certainty in Northern politics is the rise of future Oliver Twists, demanding this, that and the other. North has been the most vicious breeding ground for intransigent racism and will continue to be so because they depend primarily on hate politics for their survival. Northern racism thrived exclusively on politics of hate of the “other” – i.e., the Sinhala-Buddhists. Our intellectual “Pachayas” are reluctant to mount an argument to end Northern racism. It is the prime cause that obstructs peaceful co-existence. Reconciliation is a two-way traffic : Yal Devi must not only go to Jaffna, it must also come down to Colombo. But Prabhakaran-Wigneswaran idea of reconciliation is confined to only one-way traffic. Their idea of reconciliation is all take and no give. And the NGO “Pachayas” have gone along blithely with this one-way politics which has been the root cause of communal violence.

There can be no peace, stability and reconciliation as long as the North insists on mono-ethnic extremism. So the future depends of the North changing and accepting pluralistic multi-culturalism as a new way of life. Insisting on changes only in the South can lead to two counter-productive ends : (1) fattening bank accounts of Jehan Perera and Paikiasothy Saravanamuttu in the South and 2. paving the path to the next Nandikadal in the North.

    mr.m. your article is a clear indication that reconciliation or peace is not possible in SL. i believe there are hundreds of people like you with obviously questionable education.it is said that education is progressive understanding of ignorance and even foolishness.you are a good example. who said that english education would pave the way for moderation and multicultural understanding. you are a good case to prove the contrary. your beginning itself is wrong. prabakaran is not from the caste you have mentioned.

      “”Jehan Perera Stokes Fires Of Tamil Racism Again””

      Old dump you are hinting at the generous white Australian’s for giving your more than lunch money to be hinting at them with `racist` calls.

      Aren’t you a downright schedule class/schedule tribe from the coconut plantations playing the fascist trumpet of faith and ethnic?

      The Portuguese and Spanish both tried `faith and ethnic fascism` and it died with both the frogs. When other people’s money is over, the extreme left/right ideas fade away.

      Lankawe problem is `faith and ethnic fascism` and there is no better way to put it.

      Your Australian stay does not make you white or do you belong to European culture so you feel a racist moron.

      You should be deported forthwith but the demalas at Australia are vaddukoddai hydrocele.

    I think, new Pabakaran Wiggi is an important person to the South. If Wiggei acts intelligently not as a cheap Tribalist to make Tribalists happy, it may save Tamils as well as Sinhala people.

    It may be because of oncoming Provincial elections, very soon Wiggi may ask people even to register a new LTTE front too.

    There are unemployed sri lankan people who finished their doctoral theses in the west and they are working as NGO – mudalalis. Even if Sri lanka finds employment for some, as they did it to certain people, west may hire new people.

    These NGOs are paid by the west. But, I think, they get that money back by asking politicians to get unnecessasry – services of western companies. Both the Previous govt and the present govt are hiring western firms with large payment packages. I think, those are that pay backs.

    “Velupillai Prabhakaran, the sociopathic Rottweiler unleashed by the Tamil Vellahla leadership to fetch their bone of Eelam, is no longer there to bark, bite, or grab Tamil children on their way to school.”

    Nobody to advance and promote Vellahala Castism and Racism now among the Para-Tamils?

    Then, “In the absence of any one else surfacing to replace ruthless Tamil racism and hate politics, C.V. Wigneswaran, the Chief Minister, seems to have stepped in to fill the vacuum.”

    Then, C.V. Wigneswaran, the Para-Tamil steps in to replace and continue the saga of Para-Sinhala Racism conflict in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho.

    Para-Tamils and Para-Sinhala and other Paras, please get back to your original homeland, India, and leave the Land of Native Aethho, so that it can be in a pristine state.

    As to be expected the Eelam tamils will screech now. Well spoken. Jehan the Harvard JD who claimed to be Dr. Perera until exposed is a disgusting one-sided jerk. He has always been wrong about everything. He argues for segregation. Does he not know a lot of Tamil students go to Moratuwa and Peradeniya and Colombo campuses? Why is it wrong for Sinhala Students to study at a SRI LANKAN University in Jaffna. It belongs to all of Sri Lanka. Jehan is a disgusting Oscar Wilde type person who loves to fly business class at Norwegian expense spouting crap every possible chance he gets. He and Paikyasoththi never admitted to being wrong about the war. They both said categorically and bullshitted the west saying “Sri Lankan army will never beat the LTTE and only a negotiated settlement was possible”. Mr. Perera was wrong then and he is wrong now. He and Wigi are like George Wallace.

    wigneswaran seems to be now going against the US which has dumed the tamils now that rjapakshe is no more,but has to be careful that he does not go against india too.That was the fatal mistake prabhaharan made.When he had the US on his side he went against india.Then the US also turned against him when the september 2001 twin tower attacks took place because the US turned against all terrorist organisations.Then prabhaharan went against both the US and the old enemy india and ended up in nanthikadal.

    Will wiggie make the same mistake as prabharan and take on the US and india?

    Wiggie better do whatever modi wants him to do for the present time.Modi’s hindu credentials are immaculate,but he may be biding his time for the correct moment.He is not a bull in a china shop like rajiv nor is he a weakling like indira.As time goes on the world will sit up and take notice of modi.

    This MOST known rabble rousing king – lives up his aggressions and devious agenda but pointing finger at someone else.

    Best evidence: Please read the archives of his articles. He has always added his thought about Wellala, then tamils and their wishes… on and on. This man has not learnt it from the kindergarten – that mistakes continue.

    Australian govt should be made responsible as to why the kind of men were given refuge in that counntry. That can only a plus in promoting their thoughts while being there.

      Yes Peach Blossom I read your very recent comments on that beautiful multicultural site called Lanka Lies where you were praising your heroine, the every recent South Indian origin Jenali Borukiyanage. Then stated the entire island belongs to the Sinhalese from 600BC( strange when the Sinhalese language and a people called Sinhalese only came into existence from around 8AD/9AD) . Peach Blossom did not want any form of self rule or federalism should not be granted to the Tamil North and East, let lone a merger, stating that these are ancient Sinhalese lands and the government should be flooding these two provinces with Sinhalese settlers.

      Peach Blossom’s three comments one after another to the same tune were far more virulent, that what she posts here under a different identity

      I am not at all surprised at your praising this despicable bigot mahindapala! Birds of the same feathers flock together!

      Dayan De Silva advocating that 13th A and nothing more. mahindapala wants to subjugate the Tamils under total supremacy of the Sinhala Buddhist domination. Where do you stand? 60 years of majoritarian rule systematically eschewing the Tamils from public jobs, enterprises, and rendering them as worthless second class citizens.

        Absolute equality in all respects and right to live anywhere. No separate enclaves based on ethnicity or religion.

        You demand Ealam AND right to live anywhere.

        I insist Ealam OR right to live anywhere.

        You are struggling for a ‘political solution’ for Hindu and Christian Tamils in the North which are only 5% of total population.

        I am struggling for a political solution for all Tamil speaking people (Tamil nation) distributed across the island.

    The division of Lankans as Aryans and “others” is unscientific. HLD M is among some unscrupulous politicians still hog this aimed at those who want to hear this. The Lankan problem is language/religion based. It requires very little intelligence to understand this – HLD M does not understand! HLD M the goes on about Vellahlah caste implying the enlightened Sinhalese are caste free.

    The man says “…….. whenever Prabhakaran had constipation, the Tamils blamed “the Sinhala-government” for not sending Basmati rice!”
    Explains the HLD M has sacks and sacks of Basmathi stacked in his living room. HLD M is fat.

    HLD M quotes Indian Express (August 30, 2016 ) “………..Tamil politicians, blames the army and the police for rising drink and drug addiction among Tamil youth in the post-war era.”
    HLD M – the drug pushers freely walk in and out of the numerous army camps.

    Continue Indian Express “……..also alleged that the Security Forces are behind the rising crime in the North.”
    GoSL changed hands on 08 January 2015. There is a noticeable decrease in crime. Why HLD M?

    HLD M then recycles the same same things to make the extremists feel good.

    HLD M never discusses corruption. Is he implying that corrupt Lankans are all non-Sinhalese?

          “”There is discernible differences in features between North Indians and South Indians.””

          Yes and No. there are several cultures in the north and they have their looks tailored. A turban from patiala looks different to any other turban in punjab and vis versa. The same with other states because of the islamic invasions and buddhist conversions.

          “”There is discernible differences in features between North Indians and South Indians.””

          What do you mean by north indian?? it’s a very vague term. Bihar, UP??
          Just punjabi? H.P.
          There is a difference between North East (they were never conquered by the islamist invaders) and and North -South.

          The fair complexioned brahmins?? what do you think they are?? north or south??

          Lanka Sinhala woman dress sense is different to Tamil woman.

          The sarema and the kurta pyjama differentiate the north and central from south. It’s looked down upon as at lanka. It’s like the Scots skirts are laughed at.
          2050 india will have the largest population of muslims 350 million and also the largest Hindu at 1 billion (98% of world population of hindus)

          Only discernible difference is amongst the upper caste North Indians and in the very north and north west of India. Then again many upper caste South Indians also look similar to these upper caste North Indians. The North East is largely Mongoloid. However the masses of North and Central India and the South look very similar. Especially from the Hindi belt, Bengal, Orissa and Maharashtra. In fact the coastal Dravidian population from the western parts of South India RG, Kerala Western Karnataka are much fairer and shaper featured than many north Indians. This is due to trade and settlement from western Asia and the Roman and Greek world from ancient times. Bollywood actress Aishwriya Rai and Deepika Padukone are good examples.

            On the question of one who could succeed him, Rajan told the Nikkei Asian Review in an exclusive interview on Aug. 11 that there was no single formula in finding his replacement.
            “Sometimes what is needed is somebody who’s going to maintain the system and stabilize the system and build on it, (this is expertise from electronics and signals.)
            and sometimes who you need is somebody who will shake up the system. So I think that those things can vary depending on the time,” (expertise in banking) he said.

            Russia China was built on American money- where the population is enslaved- and that is the likelihood for SL.
            VP and his men killed some so most fled.

            Even the west does not know genealogy beyond 300 years. North india of Nawabs was a melting pot of sex slavery like the muslims had of portugal/south spain at the north of africa. The Brits protested to Queen Victoria when Clive and his men became Nabobs bringing defame to the English So she nationalised the company of EEIC.- too many babies of different genes.

            The north of india was always invaded by horseback (horses from eurasia)
            from the indo european border onwards . The romanian gypsies are indian and they are the fairest of the lot.
            the coastal lines was another generation mixed to africans like portuguese who followed the arab trade route.. The northern europeans english and dutch were not mixed to africa when they arrived 1600 (the first trade book written in 4 languages by dutch sec to bishop of portuguese goa)
            The greek 332 BC used horseback northern route and mughals used same horseback while rulers of portugal the moros and the europeans used sea route south east and just dutch west.

    To all forum participants,
    This is another unfortunate let down for Sri Lanka. This author is clearly showing the world his stupid antagonism against Tamils. Most of his sentences are showing his animosity. Such articles add oil to the fire when the Leaders are trying to put out the fire. It is also the fault of the traditional pattern of politicians coming to power on dirty racial, anti racial platforms. This is a good time for the Sri Lankan Government to include hate journalism as a crime against the Country and treated as felony. The persons he refers to as terrorists or supporters of terrorism should be able to sue him and make him realize they are responsible citizens. Sri Lanka must soon come up with a good Constitution to bring instigators of racism to task.

      “”Sri Lanka must soon come up with a good Constitution to bring instigators of racism to task. “”

      Problem with most folk is they read western books with no understanding as such are unable to see in the local context to achieve a workable solution.

      Manipulated by `crusaders` who are the cause,
      and the symptoms `ethnic violence`.

      use the word racist and europeans don’t want to know your story- they are fed up with the population boom and refugees.
      former slave blacks vs europeans is racist – two distinct races (noun)

      Once bitten twice shy and you had 2 home made constitutions. the third home made brew will never be right so it will pass into law.
      the voters must be disenfranchised for workable solution.- MR1 to MR2 ..MR3 is the voter. ekka walle pol.
      Pity you never had own monarchy to resolve ethnic problems like the Belgians did recently. Now you understand why America did not try the Emperor of Japan.
      If only pan_arab terrorist Nasser had been killed by Brits as requested by
      pan_Islam prince then Suez canal would not have closed and SriMao would never have created the socialist/communist dynasty.

    The large (enormous)Hindu temples and Muslim mosques being built around the country is the new separation road certain business men behind these schemes are heading in this direction. The politicians are wearing blinders or they don’t care. Fort Fredrick in Trincomalee has almost been taken over by the guys running the modernised Swami Rock temple, Matale is being taken over as well, Wlllpatu is being encroached on by the muslims, where are we headed another war or selling the country for money. In fact some soldiers in the Trincomalee area thought it would have been better if Praba had been running the north and east on a treaty basis and all this problems would have been handled by him while keeping the discipline, unfortunately the politicians could not know how to negotiate and make use of his capabilities. Now politicians getting mileage for killing him and have created a bigger problem which they don’t know how to solve.

      Rodrigo is a very common family name amongst the Tamil Paravans( Bharatha) from Thoothukudi in southern Tamil Nadu. Many of them migrated from Tamil Nadu and settled around the Negombo Chilaw area and also around Kotahena in Colombo. They are all now fast changing from lowly Catholic Tamil Paravans( Bharatha or Bharatha kula) from India to Catholic Sinhalese or Buddhist Sinhalese Karawa within a generation or two and to prove their new found Sinhalese identity and credentials virulently anti Tamil.
      Other common Tamil Baratha/Paravan surnames are: Vaz,Fernando, Machado, Corea, Pieris. Gomez, Costa, Soysa,Zoysa. ETC. Go to southern Tamil Nadu especially near the vicinity of the Velankanai church you will find most Catholic Tamil Paravans having these surnames. You can need not go to South India, just go to Mannar and these surnames are very common amongst the native Tamil Catholic fishermen.

        folk of colombo know the colombo chetty (they came by boat and their line rooms were built and owned by R.Vellala Tamils of Colombo and that Badi-ud-din Mahmud let them study in the english medium with second language sinhala. They were either baptised as catholics at india or at kotahena church. But JT’s treated them bad so it’s their turn. It was Rodrigopulle that became Rodrigo for posterity and survival.
        The Jewish people were given the right to change their names from WW1- Did you know initially that the Edward Miliband born at westminster was from a jewish family?

        JT’s made several mistakes and enemies that you had none when 100k gathered at london May 2009. You guys have not won a seat at westminster and lost the one at Canada by design.

    HLDM tries to Stokes Fires Of Sinhala Racism Again! [Edited out]

    “The only certainty in Northern politics is the rise of future Oliver Twists”
    Surprisingly HLDM has actually got something right! (probably by accident or his ignorance of the Oliver Twist charactor in the Charles Dicken’s classic.
    This is little boy, an orphan, who was denied even basics like decent food and acommodation by evil, corrupt men like Mr Bumble who was in charge of the ‘Poor House’ (A kind of an Orphanage) who stole the funds to feed themselves. Yes HLDM, People in Jaffna are kicked out of their properties and begging in the streets while their fertile land and fishing facilities are forcibly taken over by military run businesses with contacts to some big shots in the former (and present) goverment. They have no way to make a living while those doing ‘business’ in stolen land with free labour from soldiers paid by the Tax payer (Sri Lankan Mr Bumbles) are enjoying like. Poorp local businesses in Jaffna are dieing because of this and many farmers , fisherment are struggling with debt and often committing suicide. So those Jaffana people are simply saying “Please sir, I want some more” because they have been robbed by MR for whom you have been cheerleading these days. So that is the right comparison to Dickens Charactors! Well done HLDM!

    There can be no peace, stability and reconciliation as long as the North insists on mono-ethnic extremism.

    North Should be only Tamil speaking and Only Tamil culture practiced. Kathankudi and that region should only Islam and Only the Saudi arabian culture practiced.

    As Sinhala People are buddhists and Sri lanka should be a Democratic society, Other areas should be multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, multi- relgious.

    That should be wirrten in the constitution too.

      “There can be no peace, stability and reconciliation as long as the North insists on mono-ethnic extremism. “

      No, we don’t need mono-ethnic extremism. Let us send some Sinhala/Buddhist thugs to burn down the Jaffna Public Library in order to make the violence multi ethnic and blame it on C V Wigneshwaran.

      “As Sinhala People are buddhists”

      How many of them are Buddhists? How many of them are Sinhala/Buddhists?
