Manjula Thilakaratne Attack, Shocked Middle Class And The Heroic Deeds Of Rajano

By Vickramabahu Karunaratne –

Dr. Vickramabahu Karunaratne

There was ample evidence to assume that the attack on Secretary to the Judicial Services Commission was done by pro government forces. How did such a situation developed? The behavior of the government reveals that they are sure of themselves. They are sure that their alliance with the Sinhala rural masses will continue for a long period. For the latter, – they are the heroes that defeated the Tamil terror, which was there for some time. Many failed in this task but Mahinda led the war that defeated the invincible terror out fit. – As long as the rural petty bourgeoisie of the Sinhala society believes in this mythology they can survive and are virtually invincible. At least that is their mind set.

The recent victory in the PC elections increased their confidence in the ability to survive. Now they want to implement their development projects without hindrances and obstacles. They have become impatient to go ahead with what they believe to be the sure path to prosperity. They are right; In fact already some have become incredibly rich, with plunder and theft. They have misappropriated money from state coffers and funds of the working masses. Also, they have siphoned off big chunks, from the money obtained as credit for development projects. War was rich business too and that was the beginning where they got a taste of blood. It was the taste of blood money of the suffering people that gave them the first kick in the right direction. Delhi Brahmins, hell bent on vengeance for the humiliation they got from the Tamil Tigers, stood like Hanuman behind the Mahinda regime. Former did every thing to mobilize foreign resources for the massacre. Demolition of Vanni civilization with thousands killed and plunder of resources, created a historic tragedy better than any given Greek mythology. Tears and blood divided the country as never before, giving much opportunity to the ideology of Mahinda Chinthanaya.

However this attack against Manjula Thilakaratne shocked the middle classes in the metropolitan and they are surprised by the insolence displayed by the regime. They could not imagine how an elegant judicial officer, product of St. Thomas’s with high connections, was attacked by thugs in their paradise in MT Lavinia. In the past, for a period they were mesmerized by the heroic deeds of Rajano. Many could not believe that the regime will resort to this kind of crude terror tactics to convert or condition a higher judicial officer, a genuine part of the bourgeoisie judicial apparatus. I am sure many want take my story seriously; perhaps because it has not affected them so far. But workers could see the game. Because they saw how the regime prepared with impunity to take their money saved for generations. Still Sinhala workers were reluctant to believe what the left trade union leaders told them. In fact old layers of workers from state corporations and banks acted slowly. Many trade union bosses were very close to Mahinda, the man who walked miles with them shouting slogans against villains both local and international. His socialism mixed with Sinhala chauvinism was attractive to them. At the correct moment, Wimal Weerawansa came forward to give a self cooked theory that bonded the man from Hambantota paddy fields to the urban proletariat. This was the main factor behind the victory of Mahinda that led him to the presidential chair. However with the attempt to take over provident fund from independent existence, worker started moving out. Young workers from free trade zones came to the struggle like a panther from dark jungles of Africa.  They managed to defeat the attempt of Mahinda to grab EPF and ETF. This was the beginning of the left ward drift of the working masses. Rosen gave life for this change within the proletariat. Plantation workers also learned the lesson fast. ; Then came, the FUTA struggle which affected the urban middle class too. It made a significant change in the balance of power in the class society.

But the middle classes of the Sinhala society were reluctant to notice the right wing shift of their hero. This attachment of the Sinhala petty masses to Rajano is exactly the source of dictatorial thinking of Mahinda. This misplaced love of the Sinhala society created this obstinate agent of Global capital, who would now not hesitate to terrorize even the judiciary to achieve his target. If the law and order is violated regardless of the basic agreement in a civil society then the masses, particularly the youth will turn to violence and terror. Perhaps that is what Rajano is waiting for, to justify the use military in every corner. This is the real challenge faced by the masses of Lanka both in the north and in the south.

    Both rural and urban masses either vote for the UPFA or shun the polling booth in the absence of a credible opposition led by a charismatic leader. RW is a real blessing to this regime. Why don’t you, Bahu – we have a great respect for you as a sincere politician – join forces with the ongoing campaign to field a common opposition Presidential candidate who can be relied on to implement a common list of political imperatives designed to restore democratic governance with the abolition of the accursed Executive Presidency heading the list?

      Do not worry, Saman …. Bahu has already joined forces with that ‘unholy opposition’?
      Where were you when he joined even Sarath Fonseks who destroyed the Bahu’s eeelllam dream?
      By the way, it is interesting when Bahu says in the article .. “…They could not imagine how an elegant judicial officer, product of St. Thomas’s with high connections, was attacked by thugs in their paradise in MT Lavinia….”

      It’s funny when Bahu writes … “St. Thomas’s with HIGH connections” ….
      Only thing, he is bit confused … He thinks whole middle class as ‘COLOMBIANS’ … Probbably, that is true in Mt. Lavinia …
      Opinions are very different where Majority people of the middle class live to the middle class of COLOMBIANS …

    Rajano does not know that there is a curse from sri lankan people, [living and dead] following him, his family, other thieves and their generations..
    there is day that they have to pay for all those deeds.

      I believe it is their cunning mechanism to stay in Power. But I dont think that the folk would allow him to continue in this way. Mervin Silva behaves as he thinks is okay. Even extorting huge amounts of funds from POOR busniessmen from Kelaniya – it is almost like LTTE money collectors were sent to collect funds for Ltte. What is the difference ? MR is well informed but he acts as if daily agenda would give him no room to even think of Mervin^S inhuman activities.

      It is the general human notion that those who seek and make material benefits forsaking principles and self-dignity, and associate with corrupt politics are the successful ones in life; and it is that wrong notion that helps corrupt rulers to survive. There are just a few like Bahu who belong to a different category of people. They might have faltered in their path of approach to achieve redemption for the exploited ignorant people but the Bahu category will be long remembered by people who respect truth, honesty and dignity.

    In a flawed dismal unviable country like ours, people like Bahu are like silver lining on the dark horizon.That is exactly why he is being criticized and ridiculed unspiringly as he stands like the collossus in a dark turbulant sea of discord amd mahem emitting a stubborn chink of light.
