Mr. Gotabaya Rajapaksa, The Terrorist The Traitor

By Muhammed Fazl

Muhammed Fazl

Muhammed Fazl

While the Oxford dictionary defines the word ‘terrorism’ as “the unofficial or unauthorized use of violence & intimidation in the pursuit of political aims” and the word ‘terrorist’ as “a person who uses terrorism in the pursuit of political aims”, the Merriam-Webster dictionary gives a full definition to the word ‘traitor’ as the “one who betrays another’s trust or is false to an obligation or duty”.

The ignorant reader may wonder the relevance of my English lesson to Mr. Gotabaya Rajapaksa, but as a result of definitions above and the characteristics of our Secretary to the Ministry of Defence being so deeply intertwined, needless to say, life in modern day Sri Lanka has become more or less akin to that of Gestapo/Stasi Germany half a century ago. To be fair to the present regime, it should be mentioned that the state-sponsored fear psychosis has been in existence even during the tenure of Mr. Ranasinghe Premadasa’s presidency. 

Unlike in the past and since the mid nineties, when only empty rhetorical speeches were made by opposition parties in their resistance against the violent subjugation of masses and the plunder of economies, it would be insensate on the part of Mr. Gotabhaya and his gang of brothers should they trivialize the threat of a resurgent opposition alliance, led by the ‘never-say-die’ Mr. Ranil Wickremesinghe. In this context and considering the ‘blood ties’ factor, the need to examine the nexus between the Mahinda Rajapaksa government and the law enforcement machinery headed by Mr. Gotabhaya Rajapaksa becomes exigent.

Gotabaya RajapaksaThree months after the Aluthgama racial violence, justice is yet to be served to the victims and/or their kith and kin. While the failure to prevent violence lies solely with the police force and the army, actions at that time (or inactions) by the Ministry of Defence can be translated quite accurately as complicity in the instigation of communal disharmony between two communities.

Recalling the words of General Moshe Dayan – “Israel must invent dangers, and to do this it must adapt the strategy of provocation and revenge”, and when memories of the war victory fades gradually in the minds of the ignorant majority, Mr. Gotabaya too seems to be ‘moving mountains’ in provoking the Muslims into taking up arms against the Sinhalese-dominated armed forces and the government. While in the West nothing sells like sex, in Sri Lanka, hatred for the minorities seems to be what makes the majority community tick. Up to the task and wasting no time or leaving no stone unturned in consolidating his family’s hold on power, little did Mr. Gotabaya realize the futility in the ill-conceived notion of creating communal strife between Muslims and the Sinhalese. While the peace-loving majority community in this country need not waste time in worrying about an ‘Islamic militancy’ or bother subscribing to politically motivated speeches propagating a sense of Islamophobia, they should also understand that Sri Lankan Muslims will never be coerced or fooled into playing the ‘war games’ that is currently being spearheaded by the government proxy, the BBS.

The Secretary to the Minister of Defence may want to portray himself as a modern day Dutugemunu responsible for defeating foreign and ‘terrorist’ threats, and to showcase a strong and a competent persona to the unsuspecting and the backbone-less majority community. While Mr. Gotabhaya’s dreams should be respected, it is a common consensus among the masses now that he ‘wakes up and smells the roses’ before his ‘natural term’ expires prematurely.

A section of the population may not want Mr. Gotabaya tried for war crimes, but popular beliefs do not absolve one’s complicity in such crimes. In a nation where highest ranking war heroes are incarcerated over political differences and minor irregularities, I am all clueless as to why the main opposition party did not implicate Mr. Gotabaya in any court of law, local or international for crimes against humanity or at least for the alleged fraudulent purchase of arms. While I understand the nature of Sri Lankan politics and sentiments of the majority community, failure to hold Mr. Gotabaya Rajapaksa accountable or responsible for actions of ministries/departments coming under his direct purview has indeed resulted in a state of lawlessness.

Cries for recompense in the North-East may have fallen on deaf ears, or the trail in search of accountability and justice may have gone cold too… But unlike the cases of mass killings in Indonesia in the sixties, the killings in Chile in the seventies and the ‘killing fields’ in Cambodia among others, and where the perpetrators were brought to justice decades after their reign ended, the right-thinking masses in this country need to insist on instant justice and one that would be a deterrent for the future generation, that is if and when Mr. Gotabaya is put on trial of course.

Justice delayed is justice denied. Opposition to the current despotic government comes out alive only when individual positions and perks are at stake. Failure to even question Mr. Gotabaya Rajapaksa, let alone file a case against him for all his wrong-doings by no opposition party is beyond my comprehension. Could it be the ‘unleashing-of-violence’ capabilities of the Secretary to the Ministry of Defence that has silenced the opposition all this while? And if that is the case, would it not make Mr. Gotabaya a terrorist, at least as per the definition in the English dictionary? If public money running into millions of USDs is being looted by Mr. Goatabaya, if lives of future generations are pawned and if they are made to repay loans taken on commercial rates of interest for white-elephant projects initiated by the same Mr. Rajapaksa…, would it not also make him a traitor to the nation?

For what it is worth, let this be a call for the brave to unmask the pseudo patriot, who is after all a public servant. Sharing a lesson in chess in conclusion, though the King of the opponent is the target, more often than not, victory is made easier only when the queen is eliminated.

      His real name is Gotabaya Jarapassa and he is a psychopathic Grease Yakka who has cut down all the big shade treas in Colombo because he fears that other yakkas or devils and bombs exist in them.

      Goon Gota has a shark fish fetish, so the Independence Arcade is decorated with concrete fish tanks with gold fish trapped in muddy waer.

      Dhammika Perera has gold fish in pillars in his BLING palace – Kingbury where the Jarapassa STUDS hang out!

      Dude Fazl – lets face it: Responsibility for the failure to investigate and report on the Aluthgama violence also lies with your very own Rauf Hakeem – the so called Minister of Justice too!

    Not only Gotabaya everyone of them are terrorists – they only abuse own folks for their political survivial. See, how many of the people suffered by natural catastrophys but only Monaragala people were given some kind of financial assistance – solely only because the election. Are these funds belong to Rajapakshe family – why the many stay mum to this day ? No other leaders ever abused peoples funds to this manner as MR administration has been doing. When it goes for me, and the like, these buggers earn only death penalities.

        This is very right.

        As JVP and UNP have already calculated,
        the billions that are being wasted today can give a life to the poor easily. Through pay hikes and reduction in daily essentials can be made very easily.

        Now I wanne to see whether the bugger this time too used the srilanken airline as his pvt taxi in his entourage to the us ? People shold come to streets and desmonstrate for all these high wastages being made by the hurensohn of the nation.
        How can they the buggers even think of doing so while the majority bite their nails being unable to think of their three meals.

      The way the Rajapakse’s hang on to power is to keep the peasants simple and give them a sense of superiority with the help of Bodu Bala Sena and Rev. Gnanasara Thera whom they openly support. This also divides the communities and that helps this government as they blame each other for the ills and not the government. This has been the objectives for the government’s blocking of web sites and closing down newspapers that scrutinise their actions and tell people the truth.

    “While in the West nothing sells like sex, in Sri Lanka, hatred for the minorities seems to be what makes the majority community tick.”

    Wait a minute Muhammed Fazl,

    While I agree with all you say about Gota, why attack him only when the Maha loku mahathaya is the main culprit?

    The whole junta is guilty of the crimes against humanity and war crimes, let alone the genocide of Tamils.

    The section of the population that does not want Gota tried for war crimes happens to be the majority. The silent majority does not condone what the FAMILY does but they don’t want MR or GR tried for war crimes cuz it means that indirectly their sons who fought in the war are also war criminals. It is like Tamils, who in private bash Pirarpharan like there is no tomorrow but if a Sinhalese is around the Pirapa becomes a hero.

    MR and GR know the Sinhala Buddhist rural folks are trapped into making sure that the Pakses are not humiliated. That is where Pakse air of impunity comes from.

    As much as the Colombo armchair crowd studies statistics and analysis, when it comes to an election the people will vote as they have always done. With their hearts and not their brains.

    Even those who prop up Rajapakse & Co are terrorists including Rishad Badiudin, Rauff Hakeem etc.

    Whilst Badi was trading LTTE’s scrap metal stock, Rauff was aiding and abetting to remove Shiranee Bandaranayake as Chief Justice.

    They all have thick skins like the terrorists.

    Funny thing…bar the shouting, NOT A SINGLE OPPOSITION PARTY or its members have initiated judicial action against any of the miscreants involved with the present lot. Lots of cases against the entities controlled by these characters but none individually.

    Is this a clear lack of evidence or simply PR bull-shit to hoodwink us that they are doing something?

    If Gotabaya gave orders that are deemed illegal how come no one has still come forward ?
    If Namal, Basil, Shasheendra, Sajin and Dammika are asking for bribes, how come there is not even a whiff about the giver or taker. Is’nt this the job of the media? Do we have a media? We have mediums not a media. Certainly not a free-press!

    Dear Muhammed Fazl –

    Good analysis, but can writers and people do?

    This is what Thomas Paine, american patriot did. Write the Commons Sense Pamphlet. You ca do the same. Npt everybody in Lanka reads on the Internet.

    Can you be the Anonymous Author the and Produce Sri Lankan version of Common Sense in Sinhala, Tamil and English?

    You will do as much service to Lanka, the Land of Native Veddah Aethho, just like Thomas Paine did for America and France.You can expand this write up, and get there. Say, because I have Common Sense, I will not vote for Mr. Rajapaksa and his dynasty. Rajapaksa had the opportunity. The power corrupted them. The People are sick of them. They even used Buddhism towards their ends. Even Sinhala Buddhists are fed up them, and they are showing their true colors.

    An Anonymous Author like Thomas Paine is needed with a Common Sense Pamphlet to expose the King, King George, the Rajapaksa Clan.

    Read, the Common Sense Pamphlet , by Thomas Paine, that inspired the American Revolution along with the other events. Common Sense (pamphlet)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_Sense_(pamphlet)

    Produce a Commons sense Pamphlet for Sri Lanka and say why it is in the best interest of the people of Sri Lanka to remove the King, aka Rajapaksa Dynasty from power and let the Republic be a Republic and Not a dynasty. This Pamphlet, in Sinhala, Tamil and English, need to be sent to each and every Sri Lankan Citizen, just like Thomas Paine’s Common Sense pamphlet. Common Sense[1] is a pamphlet written by Thomas Paine in 1775–76 that inspired people in the Thirteen Colonies to declare and fight for independence from Great Britain in the summer of 1776. In clear, simple language it explained the advantages of and the need for immediate independence. It was published anonymously on January 10, 1776, at the beginning of the American Revolution and became an immediate sensation. It was sold and distributed widely and read aloud at taverns and meeting places. Washington had it read to all his troops, which at the time had surrounded the British army in Boston. In proportion to the population of the colonies at that time (2.5 million), it had the largest sale and circulation of any book published in American history.[2]

    Common Sense presented the American colonists with an argument for freedom from British rule at a time when the question of whether or not to seek independence was the central issue of the day. Paine wrote and reasoned in a style that common people understood. Forgoing the philosophical and Latin references used by Enlightenment era writers, he structured Common Sense as if it were a sermon, and relied on Biblical references to make his case to the people.[3] He connected independence with common dissenting Protestant beliefs as a means to present a distinctly American political identity.[4] Historian Gordon S. Wood described Common Sense as “the most incendiary and popular pamphlet of the entire revolutionary era”.[5]

      Dear Mr Amarasiri,

      I noted you have been pursuing Thomas Paine kind of exercise to be adopted and executed by some able entities here among us. I did read some pages of it in the internet. We would be fortunate if we can find a talented person to translate and adapt it for consumption here. Besides time is not on our side now. What we could do is a few interested people get together and do it collectively and piecemeal and then put together the work. I pray to god may someone be interested in this work.

    You wonder why charges have not been instigated against this “terrorist ” as defined by the dictionaries, it is because the opposition too have skeletons in their cupboards. There seems to be some kind of understanding between the Govt and the Opposition that one should not bring charges against the other. If by any chance the UNP comes to power, you can be certain that no action will be taken against this monster. They are all in it together.
    Not only has this phycopath guilty of war crimes and crimes against the Tamils, he is guilty of these crimes against the Sinhalese people as well. We all know when skeletons were found in Matale,this monster was in charge of that area. Has that issue been resolved?.No and do we need a rocket scientist to figure this out.
    We can only hope that day of reckoning will come sooner than later

    Muhammad Fazl:

    You are just a bully.

    You use your freedom of expression to bully some one in the media. TO be honest, you don’t know the real world.

    Go to any Saudi Arabia or any other muslim country, go to western democracies and see what the freedom that you are talking about.

    Sri lankan people, particularly those who are screaming about all these rights, those who are politically active are just bullies, people looking for anarchy, people looking for the domination for their own. they don’t want democracy. they want to bully the sinhala buddhists and domination for they themselves.

    As I learn democracy is the majority wish. In Sri Lanka if it is muslims’s wish, christians’ wish or tamils wish’ it will be reverse discrimination and they all want to subjugate sinhala buddhists and they themselves to dominate.

    Just go and live Saudi arabia and criticize royals and your religion. Go to USA and criticize the govt and how muslims are treated and see what happens to you.

    Great piece. When I saw MARA crying crocodile tears in his speech for UN and vouching the international community that he will take care of the Muslim brother in SL personally didn’t know what to say. Apparently his heart aches sincerely, as he felt the pain of great defeat on his way if all the minority votes go against MARA to a common candidate. This Islamophobia is to pander US and Israel lobby right now on their neck throwing resolution after resolution. And now he says he adore Muslims cause he wants to curry-favor with the pending UN Arab leagues visit to SL soon. The great idiot Prof GLP must be thinking these kind of talks can mend what is broken. This goverment’s Humpty Dumpty has now become the ghosts of Aluthgama.

    IMO, the silence of the opposition on filing a complaint against GOTA on war crimes for his assumed popularity with Sinhalese majority for maneuvering the SL army towards war victory. Since it would have been political suicide for them. GoTA would welcome such move as he can use him to paint all of them as Traitors who are siding with the western powers or taking orders from the western hands who has vested interests in meddling with SL’s soverinity and the agenda of the LTTE rump organizations.

    Do not blame them alone.In law, condoning a crime make the person who condoned equally guilty.Ranil the Reluctant or the Silent and the UNP is equally guilty.They are silent because they want to come into power and subject the people to equally ruthless administration.

    What we need is a new political set up without this group in power or the opposition forming a govt to torment the people.

    This so called Secretary of Defense has failed in getting justice, and finding the criminals, who killed Lasantha, they have not brought the criminals who shot and killed Muslims in Althugama to face a court of law, he has not used his office to halt the many attacks on minorities and their places of worship, he has been a miserable failure, and by his failure to condemn these racists, (instead he chooses to open their offices), all signs point to his being complicit in these ugly crimes, and many more.

    If the President of Sri Lanka was genuinely disappointed in how his brother operates, he could have removed him from the post he does not deserve, but he too, by his inaction and silence, seems to be complicit in crime, murder, and silencing those who speak out against them.

      MR cannot get rid of his brother. MR may be the face of the Government but it is GR who is pulling the strings.

      Why would MR allow BBS to cause such havoc and discredit him in the eyes of the world? Hasn’t he enough problems with the UN & the Tamil diaspora? Why would MR allow Ven Wirathu a visa when he is condemned by the West? Why is MR so silent on the persecution of the minorities?

      It all leads to the military-backed Lt Colonel who is running the show. Once the circus closes in 2015 the Ring Master will step into the spotlight and the world will see him clearly.

    You have to give him credit for that. That is why we can go anywhere we like now and send our children to school without fear.

    What he has done since, is as much the fault of the general populace as it is the fault of his brother and subservient civil servants.

    Are you still writing from the USA, Fazi?

    Maybe you have ambitions to become another “journalist in exile” with your attacks against the Defense Secretary?

    Though he could be said to be creating a military dictatorship, Gotabaya Rajapaksa cannot reasonably be described as a terrorist. There is a big difference between instilling fear and creating terror. Bombs going off on buses creates terror – that is what they are intended to do. The Defense Secretary played an important role in ridding Sri Lanka of such terror.

Your comments Amare or who ever you are proves this beyond any doubt .

    Well written Mr. Fazi and concisely too. Gotabhaya is first and foremost a psychopath and secondly and importantly he is the brother of the president of Sri Lanka holding an important public service position merely by virtue of the fact he is the brother of the President. To his credit are also many a grave of unexplained skeletons waiting to be explained as to why they have been left there. He is undoubtedly a terrorist but as to whether he is a traitor by Sri Lankan standards is still left to be explained. Bensen

    With ISIL in the middle east civilizing the Christians, the Shias and minority religious groups who ever needs the Merriam Webster.

    We tasted a tiny bit of ISIL type civility in Aluthgama. It has fortunately not been repeated. The hotheads have been controlled by the wise ones among the Muslim community.

    Even though I don’t sometime agree with you most often than not I must congratulate you on the excellent penmanship of this article. More over the courage to write such an article given the way journalists are threatened and subdued by the present regime. Rightly put its nothing but the fear psycosis card that the band of brothers are playing to keep themselves in power. They know very well that that they their popularity is waning the way they have ruined the economy of this country, and people are beginning to realize that they are being plundered by the ruling family. Moreover with the conclusion of the recent UVA elections its seems the cracks within the ruling party are beginning to appear.

    I would love to see the day when the present regime is toppled and the government that replaces them files cases to verify as to how the ruling family accumulated vast amounts of wealth, human rights violations and overall hold them responsible for the state of affairs in this country. Ensure they are thrown in Jail and the keys are thrown away.

    You mention President Premadasa using strong arm tactics, even though he had choices, but the man had more moral values than the present lot for sure.

    All I can say is keep writing and we can only keep hoping that people like yourself bring to light such matters to the common man. May the force be with you and wish you well. Hope to see a Country back to its glorious best soon.
