Mullaitivu 2009: 400,000 Lived, 290,000 People Came Out, What Happened To The Balance? – Sampanthan Asks

By R. Sampanthan

R. Sampanthan

The reason why I am reminding the House of these matters is that you cannot sweep everything under the carpet. Your current approach can do immense harm to this country. Much has been said about the fact that there is a complaint that 40,000 people have been killed and as to how that can be accepted.

There were at least 350,000 people in this area, probably around 400,000 based on our own investigations, only 290,000 people came out. What happened to the balance? Your estimate was that there were only 60,000 to 70,000 people who lived in this area at this point of time.

You sent food, medicine and other supplies only for that number – 60,000 or 70,000. When the number was as large as 350,000 why did you restrict the number to only 60,000 or 70,000?

We conducted our own investigation in regard to this matter and we were satisfied that there were at least 350,000 to 400,000 people in that part of Mullaitivu at that point of time.

Transcript of the speech made by Sampanthan on the 5th of April 2019:

ගරු රාජවරෝදියම් සම්පන්දන් මහතා

(மாண்புமிகு ராஜவரோதயம் சம்பந்தன்)

(The Hon. Rajavarothiam Sampanthan)

Hon. Chairman, before I commence my speech, may I say that the Government and the Opposition have both agreed to give me five minutes each which means I would have 30 minutes. But, let me commence and go along, Sir. We are on the final day of the Budget Discussion. As I have often stated earlier, the future of the country is not purely an economic issue. It is a very multifaceted issue. Even the future economy of the country is dependent upon several issues; it is dependent upon its unity and its strengths based upon the unity; it is dependent upon the reputation that it enjoys both domestically and internationally. The two issues of utmost importance to the country today, in my view  are; the implementation of the Resolution co-sponsored by the Sri Lankan Government and unanimously adopted  by the United Nations Human Rights Council in 2015, 2017 and 2019; and the adoption of a new Constitution for the country as unanimously decided by Resolution adopted in this Parliament in 2016. With regard to the first matter, the United Nations Human Rights Council Resolution is also based upon two investigations; the first, conducted by an independent panel appointed by the Secretary-General of the UN comprising of three experts from different parts of the world and the second, an investigation conducted by the UN Human Rights Council itself. Both have come to the conclusion that war crimes and crimes against humanity were committed, that there were violations against international humanitarian and human rights laws during the civil conflict and that the matter needs to be further investigated upon and determined. Sri Lanka has conducted no investigation of any sort, not even a domestic investigation and persists that it will not implement certain aspects of the UN Human Rights Council Resolution. From the point of view of Sri Lanka, there was only one report, the Report of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission; even that Report has not yet been implemented. I have spoken on this civil conflict, Sir, in Parliament in 2009 and before that – the conflict came to an end in May 2009 – without being contradicted by the Government and in fact, not merely me, but many others – both those in this Parliament and other personalities – have referred to at least some of the matters that happened during the course of the conflict. 

It is my intention, Sir, to make reference to some of these matters to demonstrate what was stated in this Parliament and by others at the time the conflict took place without any contradiction by the Government. I will read, Sir, from the position that I stated in Parliament in 21st January, 2009. 

“What has been happening to the Tamil people as a result of the war that  is being waged in the North and  the East? There is constant aerial bombing, continuous aerial bombing, sometimes several bombings per day. There  is constant multi-barrel rocket launcher fire, constant artillery fire, all into civilian populated areas. Is  this happening in any part of the world?  Are civilian- populated areas  being   bombed aerially and  are multi-barrel rocket  launchers  and  heavy artilleries being fired into  civilian populated areas in any other part of the world? I got  some statistics here. They are short of food; they are short of medicine; they are short of shelter; they are short of drinking water; they are short of sanitation facilities. People are undergoing immense difficulties in the Vanni. There are about 350,000 to 400,000 people now in the Mullaitivu District, in a part of the Mullaitivu District, running helter-skelter from one place to another depending on where the bombing is taking place, where the shelling is taking place.”

That was the position in this area when I spoke in this Parliament in January, 2009, a position which was not contradicted by the Government. 

“Nobody knows what is happening in this area. There are no United Nations agencies in this area. There are no International Non-Governmental Organizaitons in the Vanni. They  were all asked to get out of that place in September last year  and since then, they  are not stationed there permanently and they cannot act freely and independently as they wish.”

So, Sir, that  was the position that prevailed in the Vanni in 2018 and 2019. 

So what do we see in the statements made by Madam Navanethem Pillay who was the Head of the UN Human Rights  Commission at that point of time, the statement made by Madam Louise Arbour, who was also the Head of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights  a little earlier, and the statement made by Justice Bhagwati – the Chairman of the International Independent Group of Eminent Persons, a retired Chief Justice of India who was in Sri Lanka in order to assist in the investigations  that have been conducted by the Udalagama Commission in regard to several human rights violations. They have all made their position very clear, Sir, in the statements they have made.

Madam Navanethem Pillay said, Sir, “Certain actions being undertaken by the Sri Lankan military and by the LTTE may constitute violations of international human rights and humanitarian law. We need to know more about what is going on, but we know enough to be sure that the situation is absolutely desperate.” She went on to say, Sir, “Despite the Government’s designation of safe or ‘no fire’ zones for civilians, repeated shelling had continued in those zones. Other areas holding civilians had also been shelled, she claimed. Credible sources  had indicated that  more than  2,800 civilians may have been  killed and more than 7,000 in these zones in the past few days. Even after the Government’s announcement on 24 February that heavy weapons would not be fired into the no-fire zones, close to 500 people were reportedly killed and more than a thousand injured in these areas.” 

That is what Madam Navaneetham Pillay, High Commissioner for Human Rights had to say in regard to the situation in this area. There are limited quantities of food, reports of severe malnutrition, medicines are unavailable even in the one makeshift medical facility that is still functioning. 

Madam Louise Arbour, Sir, was also the Commissioner for Human Rights in the UN. She urged the Government of Sri Lanka to establish in Sri Lanka an Office of the High Commission for Human Rights to be in a position to monitor what is happening in Sri Lanka. That was declined, refused, rejected and this is what she had to say. I quote: 

“There was a culture of impunity which had so deeply permeated into the Sri Lankan society, that if we wanted to eradicate the culture of impunity, there was an urgent need to set up a human rights mechanism, a human rights office in Sri Lanka under UN auspices to monitor the human rights situation in Sri Lanka.” 

Sir,that was the position expressed by Human Rights High Commissioners in regard to the situation prevalent in this area. 

Justice Bhagwati, the Chairman of the International Independent Eminent Group of Persons (IIGEP)  a renowned jurist, who had been responsible for extreme changes in India pertaining to human rights had this to say. I quote: 

“Summary executions, massacres, disappearances, wanton destruction of  property and forcible transfers of population can never be justified. No efforts should be spared to uncover responsibility, including recognition of command responsibility, for such actions. The International Independent Group of Eminent Persons has, however, found an absence of will on the part of the Government of Sri Lanka in the present inquiry to investigate cases with vigour, where the conduct of its own forces has been called into question”

This was the position, Sir, that was stated by the different persons of repute, who are international personalities. 

The reason why I am reminding the House of these matters is that you cannot sweep everything under the carpet. Your current approach can do immense harm to this country. Much has been said about the fact that there is a complaint that 40,000 people have been killed and as to how that can  be accepted. There were at least 350,000 people in this area, probably around 400,000 based on our own investigations, only 290,000 people came out. What happened to the balance? Your estimate was that there were only 60,000 to 70,000 people who lived in this area at this point of time. You sent food, medicine and other supplies only for that number – 60,000 or 70,000. When the number was as large as 350,000 why did you restrict the number to only 60,000 or 70,000? 

We conducted our own investigation in regard to this matter and we were satisfied that there were at least 350,000 to 400,000 people in that part of Mullaitivu at that point of time. 

I want to make it very clear, Sir, that no one is saying that all the Armed Forces who fought the LTTE on the instructions of the Sri Lankan State should be blamed or punished. The Armed Forces acted on the instructions of the Sri Lankan Government, but those responsible for domestic and international crimes including those responsible on the basis of command responsibility and the chain of command should not be allowed to get away scot free. I say this, because that would be extremely harmful to the future interests of this country, the long-term interests of this country. It is absolutely essential, Sir, that the truth must be ascertained. 

The second matter I referred to was the Constitution. We all adopted a Resolution in this Parliament unanimously to frame a new Constitution, but we seem stuck. I do not know why, but we seem stuck. I want to refer, Sir, to something which President Barack Obama , the first black American President said shortly after he was elected as the President for the first time in the United States. He said, “The American people must be true to our founding documents, the documents on which America came into being. American people must be true to their founding documents, the document on which America came into being.” Do we, in Sri Lanka, have any founding document, any Constitution to which we can go back and say, “This is our founding document; this is the document on which the country is built, our society is built,  which we cherish, which we value, which is the ultimate law of the land?  Do we have any such founding document? How can we survive as a nation?  How can we survive as a country, when we do not have in this country a constitution which has been accepted by the majority of the people in this country based upon a consensus as much as possible a national consensus? And, this Parliament adopted a unanimous Resolution to frame a new Constitution.  Much work has been done in regard to that matter, in fact, the constitutional process has been going on from 1988 for almost 30 years. There was a “Mangala-Moonesinghe Select Committee Report during President Premadasa’s time; there was a Madam Chandrika Bandaranaike’s Report during her term as President- August 2000 Constitutional Proposals; there was a proposal made by President Mahinda Rajapaksa, the Tissa Vitharana Report – the APRC Report.  With all these being available to us, we are still unable to frame a Constitution.  And, do you think, that is a good thing for the country? Is it good for the country to go on like this? Can you go on like this indefinitely? Is it not harmful to the country? In regard to the national question, Sir, your position appears to be that you have brought about a military solution and there is no need for a political solution now. 

I want to in this context, refer to a Statement made by Srimati Indira Gandhi, the Prime Minister of India. When the new State of Bangladesh came into being in 1971, the late Prime Minister of India, Shrimathi Indira Gandhi, in a letter to President Nixon on 15th December, 1971, in regard to the situation in Bangladesh stated as follows. I quote:

“The fact of the matter is that the rulers of West Pakistan got away with the impression that they could do what they liked, because no one, not even the United States, would choose to take a public position that while Pakistan’s integrity was certainly sacrosanct, human rights, liberty were no less so, and that there was a necessary inter-connection between the inviolability of states and the contentment of their people.” 

If you cannot keep the people contented, if you cannot give the people their legitimate rights, then, the sustainability of your unity and your territorial integrity become gravely questionable. Are we not in the same state? How long has the Tamil question remained unresolved? For the last 70 years? And the Constitutional process that we started in 1988 – we are today in 2019 – 30 years down the road. – has not yet been completed and you are unable to complete it. We do not know what is happening. You do not have the will to complete the process and you want to keep the Tamil people as second-class citizens and you want to suppress them militarily even if they were to rise again. Through civil disobedience based upon ahimsa and sathyagraha, you think they can be suppressed. More than 50 per cent of the Tamil population who lived in this country have left this country. Is it your belief that if you proceed with your military course of action even the balance 50 per cent would leave? Is that your position? Is that your thinking? We are committed to a solution within the framework of a united, undivided, indivisible Sri Lanka. We are firmly committed in regard to that. We want to evolve a solution within the framework of a united, undivided, indivisible Sri Lanka. But, if you do not accept that, please do not expect us to live in this country as second-class citizens. We will not live in this country as second-class citizens. We have our own sovereignty to which we will be entitled. In that situation, on account of your lapse, on account of your default to ensure that we are able to exercise our sovereignty within a united country you will create a situation harmful to the country.

Before I conclude, Sir, I want to say a few words on North-Eastern development. I have just sent the Hon. Minister, our good Friend, Hon. Mangala Samaraweera a copy of the letter I gave the Prime Minister yesterday. The North-East, Sir, was neglected in the matter of development even prior to the war commencing. We were backwards. We were not given equal treatment. We suffered in development. When the war commenced, the North-East was devastated and destroyed both by the Army and by the LTTE. When we were trying to rebuild the North-East, I and my Colleague, the Hon. Sumanthiran met the Hon. Minister of Finance and impressed upon him the need to start a special fund for the rebuilding of the North-East in the field of agriculture, in the field of fisheries, in the field of livestock development, in the field of industry, in various other activities, employment generation and skills development to enable our youth, our women, our widows to be able to recommence life and lead a respectable life.

We wanted the Minister to start a fund and the Minister promptly agreed and said, “I understand the need for it and we will start a North-East development fund with an initial allocation of Rs. 5 billion from the Ministry to which we add more funds. We will ensure that more funds go in.”

Hon. Minister, do you want to say something?

(மாண்புமிகு மங்கள சமரவீர)

(The Hon. Mangala Samaraweera)

Hon. Sampanthan, I am happy to say that we have also started drafting the Bill which will be brought to Parliament and the fund will be called “Palmyrah Fund”. It will be open for donations from the private sector as well as the diaspora. 

ගරු රාජවරෝදියම් සම්පන්දන් මහතා

(மாண்புமிகு ராஜவரோதயம் சம்பந்தன்)

(The Hon.  Rajavarothiam  Sampanthan)

Hon. Minister, when we met you, you assured us that you will transfer Rs. 5 billion this year for the commencement of development activities in the North- East. We have eight districts in the North-East. I do not have to give you the names. The Prime Minister started a mechanism under his chairmanship; coordinators have been appointed; they have consulted our people; they have consulted us and come up with proposals. Each district has come up with proposals up to about Rs. 3 billion. We need in all for a start Rs. 24 billion. We are not demanding the whole thing now. But, kindly give us a substantial percentage, at least 60 or 70 per cent of the Rs. 24 billion, to be able to commence the activities that must be given priority, to ensure that we are able to carry on those activities and to have them fully implemented. I have not a slightest doubt that you will be very sympathetic and very understanding in regard to my request.  I would urge you to kindly discuss this matter with the Prime Minister. 

After all, Jaffna is an important district, a peninsula; there is the Vanni; there is the Eastern Province which is a large area, comprising of Trincomalee, Batticaloa and Ampara where all people have suffered. Tamil people, in particular, have suffered a great deal. There is much development that is urgently required, particularly, in agriculture, fisheries, livestock development, industries and employment. Women, widows, ex-militants and ex-LTTE cadres who have come back to civilian life need to be looked after. All these things cannot be done if there is no money. We are formulating programmes so that we will be able to deal with these issues expeditiously. That is necessary. There is no purpose in talking about national reconciliation and there is not purpose in talking about goodwill and harmony unless you are able to make a contribution to uplift these people and to improve the standard of living of these people. That is what we are asking for. 

So, I would kindly urge you respectfully to enhance your fund for the development of the North-East. Thank you, Sir.

      This old Dude should retire. He is the cats paw of the Trumpland Huan Rights Endgame to divide, distract and set up military base aka Logistics hub in Trincomalee.
      The UNHRC annual ritual-farce, the drug war, and the US citizen Gota fake trial story are US fake news to distract from the ongoing economic war by Washington Consensus against people of Lanka in the Cold War against China and the looting of Lanka by Trumpland puppets bondscam Ranil and his financially illiterate finance Minister and other clueless and corrupt butterflies to set up oil plants to supply Trumpland war ships and planes..
      The land grab by the navy in Mandathivu, as in Hambantota for the dodgy oil processing plant is all done on instructions of MCC and Washington, so better Samabanthan go protest as US embassy..

          I would add “learning and the laws|” as well to old Sam – a brilliant Speaker/Writer of Tamil and English languages.

          Allow me to disagree with you on your description of the semi-literate, avaricious, degenerate from Polonnaruwa. I would rather the description of the legendary CJ of decades ago – the Hon’ble HNG Fernando; who compared another politico of his days to a Crab – congenitally disenabled for forward movement in a straight line in any useful sphere.

    Tamil people will never get justice anywhere , as the states you were complicit in the Eelam Tamil genocide will see to this. What is happening in the UNHCR is a charade. All this proves what I have always stated , contrary what the Sinhalese state , the British had always favoured the Sinhalese and only used the Tamils . This is why they gave the Tamils on a platter to the Sinhalese in 1948 , with no protection or adequate minority rights or federalism. They also left the 1 million strong Indian origin estate Tamils with no protection, at the mercy of Sinhalese racists. They could have granted them citizenship before they left and the Sinhalese could not have done anything. . They merged the Tamil lands that had always remained separate until all this time with the Sinhalese lands in 1833 , to create a new colony called Ceylon and then took large chinks of Tamil lands , like the north west coast from Puttlam to Negombo, Padaviya and Thamban Kadavai ( Thamankaduwa) and made them part of Sinhalese lands, forcing the Tamils living in these areas to take a Sinhalese identity. When they left they should have divided the island or created a federal form of government, but did neither but gave the whole island to the Sinhalese and have been overtly and covertly supporting their genocide against the Tamils. A not only Britain but the USA and India were helping the Sinhalese to destroy the island’s Tamils for their own selfish interests and will see to it that the Sinhalese will never be punished , as they all complicit in this structural genocide.

      Siva Sankaran Sharma,
      “They could have granted them citizenship before they left and the Sinhalese could not have done anything.”
      ———-
      British were illegal occupiers. They had no right to give citizenship to Dravidians they brought illegally to this country. Sinhalayo made a blunder by not chasing out all the Dravidians brought illegally by Portuguese, Dutch and British parasites to exploit the resources of Sinhale after the British left. Burma kicked out all the Hindians after British left and Brits could not do anything.

      Hik hik. I think Shankar is not from this world for such imaginations Show us any historical evidence for ancient tamil settlements or for any roots here in Sri Lanka originally.

            Do I regret?
            No.

    SJV Chalavanagm was born in Tamil Christen believer of that ” God created world” of by as Christen fundamentalist.
    By his track record shows that said he was Malaya Born Tamil of Christen by illegally migrate to Ceylon during white man rule by British colonial era. No doubt that British rule was allowed many illegal Tamils to settle-down in Island by large scale of Tamils of Southern Indian as well as Malayalam Tamils are permitted stay indefinitely by over 150 years since 1796?
    Those who were an illegal Tamils occupy best lands and gain better schools and political privileges of jobs from while that While Man to oppressed and suppressed majority Sinhalese- Buddhist People of by Colonial rule of Islands of Ceylon by British house of Hanover,#
    Needless to say that UK was behind “Federal State” that claim for Tamils by SJV of FP!
    An idea of partition of Lankan land was Tamils origin by vella Tamils of so-called high cast, who were lived in Oversees of majority of them are Malaya Tamils.

      It is recorded history that 99% of the South Indian immigrants who migrated to the island from the 12Th century onwards to modern times , got assimilated into the Sinhalese identity. The latest are the Colombo Chetties and the Bharatha ( Paravan) from Tamil Nadu now soon taking on a Sinhalese identity and claiming an imagined North Indian origin. You are one of them the so called Kandyan Sinhalese name Banda./Bandara is derived from the Tamil name/tile /caste Pandaran/Pandarar. DNA has provide beyond doubt that it is the Sinhalese and not the Sri Lankan Tamils who area largely descended from Indian Tamil immigrants. From ancient to fairly recent. Sinhalese share a 70% DNA with Indian Tamils and Sri Lankan Tamils only 17%. Even the so called Bengali origin of the Sinhalese is now proving a myth, as the Sri Lankan Tamils share a marginally higher rate of DNA with the Bengali 30% compared to the 25% that the Sinhalese share with the Bengali. The Sri Lankan Tamils are largely descended from the indigenous Dravidian Naga and these original immigrants from North East India. The Original Sinhalese from the Buddhist converted Dravidian Yakka ( largely) and the North East immigrants but most of the present day Sinhalese are descended from South Indian immigrants ( largely Tamil some Telugu, as Kerala was Tamil at that time) who came to the island as immigrants and invaders and gradually settled down ,got converted to Buddhism and got Sinhalised. All these immigration and invasions were concentrated on the Sinhalese south and not on the Tamil North East. This why many Sinhalese surnames are just a variation of Tamil family/caste names and culture, food , dress, festivals and even the gods of the Sinhalese reflect the Tamils and not any other Indian people, as they are of Tamil descent.

        Siva Sankaran Sharma,
        We are not interested about your cooked up DNA figures. There were no Tamils in Sinhale. Sinhalayo called the Dravidian invaders ’Demalu’. British called them ‘Malabars’ because majority of them were from Malabar until a guy called Ponnambalam Arunachalam who prepared the Census Report in 1911 change the term ‘Malabars’ to ‘Ceylon Tamils’. Because Demalu licked the a*s of Brits they allowed that change. Using a customary law of Malabar called ‘Thesawalamei’ by Demalu in Yapanaya confirms that they are not Tamils but Malabaris. Tamils did not have a traditional homeland in Sinhale. How can invaders and slaves brought by colonial rulers have a traditional homeland in Sinhale?

        Siva Sankaran Sharma, you the Tamil Nadu Tamil writing in an assumed name accuses Sinhalese as racists, whereas you are the real racists. More than half your population live among the Sinhalese, whereas Sinhalese cannot buy an inch of land in Jaffna. Whereas Jaffna had a large Sinhalese population, now there is none. Wigneswaran spreads hatred among the Tamils making cooked up stories against the Sinhalese. 500 year old skeletons found in Mannar are proved to be of the Sinhalese who were killed by the kallathony Chankili (Sankili) in the 16th centuary. Real genocide was caused by the Tamils on the Sinhalese. So why are you lying?

      You must be proud to be a Banda. Do you know who your ancestors were?

      The last king of the Kandyan kingdom Kannasamy Nayakar Pandaram aka Sri Vikrama Rajasinha did not have any children to his official Dravidian wife (Queen) Rajammal Venkatamma. However he (King) had hundreds of children to his upcountry Sinhalese anthapura wives (as a king, it was his privilege to have any woman he found attractive as his anthapura wife). The children of the king born to the anthapura wives were called Pandaram who later became Bandara and Banda. Today there are an awful lot of Bandaras and Bandas in the upcountry. They all have Kannasamy Nayakar Pandaram’s royal blood running in their veins.

      You should ask the armed forces and Gota as to why even after 10 years of the conclusion of the war they continue to refuse to publish the details of those who surrendered to them throughout the war and in the aftermath. They at least promised to publish the list thrice in the past, therefore they have the list.

      Please let us know the details.

      That is the difference between a white race and a brown like Sinhalaya. Now it should be easy for you to understand why Lankawe couldn’t go up from the time your British masters left you alone.

      After World War II, MacArthur and Marshall came out with their plan to redevelop Japan and Europe. They distributed Aid for about 20 countries. Old Royal Bulldozed alive all raped women & took the Thalikoddies, transported to Colombo in Trucks, sold it to Japan. Then they remitted $18b in foreign bank accounts. Only list they have is youths arrived to Internment Camps, in 2009. They call it as rehabilitated youths. These are boys and girls they use for Aava Khuzu, Drug and Kerala Ganga trade, political murders, police shooting……. It is not a secret that more than five times the Rapist Army refused produced at the court the rehabilitated rebels list for Sasitharan missing person case.

    Dear Sinhala and Tamil friends.
    You both witnessed large scale massacres and dead bodies were covered in the mass graves within past 30 years and it was raised in UNHCR in 1990 and 2009. 1989-90 Sinhalese claimed (Mahinda in UN) over the massacre of 60000 and 2009 Tamils claimed 40000 in 2009 (Mahinda in Power). Sinhalese and Tamils denied justice from the Sinhalese lead leadership.There is a question for Sinhalese. Do you deny what happened to Sinhalese in 1989/90? I understand in both cases Gotapaya was in military.

      There are simple ways to deal with missing persons issues.
      The state has already appointed more than three commissions to whitewash the entire issue of war crime and crimes against humanity since 1971.

      You should demand the state and its political masters to disclose the details of those who surrendered to the armed forces and those who were already being released.

      Then a genuine commission modelled on Truth and Reconciliation Commission of South Africa could not only can dig out truth but provide the incentive for the victims and perpetrators to reconcile.

As such MP R sambandan making yet another issue to win western countries sympathy.Manner mass grave issue become yet another big lies. Lying is the habit of Tamils politicians. Not only here but south India as well.cholora & Vasoori carriers did not allow into Sinhalese society. Not only society but Sinhalay land even. First came as traders then as invaders after completion of colonization in south part of India to colonize this land as well. all ended in failure. But Came here as slaves & Coolis when Dutch, British captured Sinhalay. Helped Colonial masters to kill sinhalese. Muslim Tamils came as refugees did same thing. Both Tamils lot main aim is to kill Sinhalese population & establish their own kingdom. For Tamils so called Elam. For Muslim Tamils Islamic republic. Our youth should rally round & defeat this .

It is not the Eezham Thamizh but Chingkallams like you who are predominantly descended from largely low caste Indian Thamizh immigrants , who were brought in as slave labour by the Portuguese and Dutch and settled along the western and southern coasts. Hardly any of them were settled in the Thamizh areas. This is a fact. Chingkallam Poutha racist Kurangus like you are now trying to twist the truth and the facts. DNA proves this . Chingkalla DNA is 70% Indian Thamizh but Eezham Thamizh DNA is only 17% Indian Thamizh. So go and tell you lies to some idiot. This why Chingkallams , follow Thamizh customs, celebrate the ancient Thamizh new year and worship Pattini and Lord Murugan.

          Your ancestors came from Kerala (Kochi) and settled in Matara. All the Sorcerers in down south (low country) are from Kerela (Kochi). All the Sorcerers in down south Sri Lanka chant in old Malayalam language (now translated into Sinhala). All the Kattadiyas in down south, specifically Matara are also from Kerela (Kochi) and what they chant is Malayaala Manthara. Today they have modified their Kochi names into Sinhala along with Sinhala Ge names. All the family names ending with Suriya are fishermen brought from Kochi, but they are also good Sorcerers. Your ancestors are all from Kochi, they got converted into Sinhala Buddhist to hide their low caste Kochi identity. Professor of Anthropology Gananath Obeyesekere (in his book “Buddhism, Ethnicity, and Identity,”) talks about your ancestors. Today you Kochi fellows are talking about a distinct, ‘North Indian Sinhabahu’s Lion-blooded Sinhala Aryans’, the Nationalist Patriots and guardians of the country (Sri Lanka) and its Religion (Buddhism) and call yourselves the blood relatives of Dutugemunu, LOL!

            Until 1820, 85% of more of Kerala’s population was speaking a the local Tamil dialect that was called Malayalama or Malabar Tamil/Tamul and it was written in the Tamil script. In 1820 , at the behest of their North Indian origin Namboothiri allies , and their half caste bastard supporters Nairs allies, the British banned the use of this language and destroyed every trace of this language/dialect, old books. poetry etc, that was the real native language of Kerala and made the dialect of the of Namboothiri Brahmin immigrants as the official language of Kerala. What is now passing off as Malayalam is the highly Sanskritised dialect of the Namboothiri Brahmins , that until then was called Grantham or Grantha Bhasha . This was only confined to them and is written in the Tulu based Tilgari script.

          • 2
            2

            contd: In the 1830s , a German missionary named Hermann Gundert arrived in Kerala and he was an Aryan supremacist . He considered this highly Sanskritised Grantha dialect spoken by the Namboothiri superior , to the native Tamil Malayalama dialect spoken by the masses and compiled a grammar for this dialect and as a sop to the masses added quite a lot of Dravidian( Tamil ) words to this new language and he and the British , cunningly changed the name of this language from Grantham to Malayalam ( the name of the local Tamil dialect). and made it the compulsory and official language of Kerala. This is why in modern Kerala there is hardly any trace or literary works in the native Malabar Tamil dialect , other than the Thampuran Vannkam that survived in Goa. Only the works of the Grantham that started to evolve when the Namboothiris migrated from the north from around the 12Th century is there , passing off as evolution of the Malayalam language from Tamil. This is all a blatant lie. The British did a lot of damage to the Tamil people and the Tamil language and the idea that they favoured them is a myth. Many of them were Aryan supremacists and favoured the anti Tamils. This why when they discovered the Mahavamsa comic book , they lapped it up and promoted the Sinhalese Aryan myth of white Aryans ruling Brown Aryans and the inferior Tamil Dravidians.

            Thampuran in old Tamil means lord . This word is still used in Kerala , in Sri Lanka it is not commonly used but shortened versions of it like Thampi, Thambar, Thampu.

    Mr Sampanthan, your concern for just the number of people (Tamils) without any mention of the quality of those people is not what we want for this country. We need quality, dedicated people if we are ever to develop as a country.

    Throughout history we have experienced a dilution of our human resorces since the Portuguese invasion of the 15th century due to admixture with uncivilised, robbing vandals of the Jewish type. The trend continued with similar kinds from Holland and Britain.-

    To take one very bad example, a Dutch invader named Benjamin raped a Ranmenika, officially leaving a litter of 11 bastards some of who are ruining our countryside to this day. Do we want more of that type, or more civilised decent people?

    STILL COUNTING THE DEAD is a fitting title to the book by Frances Harrison.The debate goes on with claims and counter claims by both sides.One way to gauge the scale of casualties is to subtract the number of survivors in the Govt:refugee camps from the total population figures for rebel territory before the war..Every Tamil who came out of the war zone alive was enumerated,irrespective of whether they were a civilian or a combatant..The registration occurred twice-once at the point of surrender and once at Omanthai checkpoint.
    The Govt: Population estimate for rebel held areas was 429,059 in Oct:2008.It is known that between 282,380 and 289,915 were counted at the end of the war,in May 2009.So this leaves anything between 139,000 and almost 148,000 unaccounted for,presumed dead.
    All of them could not have been LTTE!
    10 Years on after the end of the War, A Palmyrah Fund is the compensation eh? and 6000 bucks per month for a War Widow. This is adding Insult to Injury. In fact Hon:Sampanthans speech, very close to our next round of Elections is also a numbers game.!

    From the comments here , it proves that most Sinhalese are racist to the core and will never accept responsibility for what they did to the Tamils and now to the Muslims , an impartial international investigation is needed. Yes we know now many of these countries that are now calling for this investigation , like the USA , Britain , India were all complicit in this structural genocide and still are , as they still maintain military and other ties with the Sri Lankan government. They were not maintaining these sorts of relations with Serbia or other nations. This is why Sri Lankan is still treated leniently at the UN and is constantly given time , which was denied to nations like Serbia and Indonesia, where far less atrocities were committed. and other nations. As thes enations want to hide theri own part in this genocide. However still an international investigation is needed. It is sad as 99% of the Sinhalese commenting here and making derogatory remarks are from the so called western educated middle, upper middle and upper classes and many of them are residing in the west , enjoying all the benefits that the western liberal societies offer for themselves and their children but are preaching and posting hate messages and urging discrimination against the island’s Tamils and other non Sinhalese, in the name of Sinhalese Buddhist Fascism . They are even deliberately trying to concoct fake history and statistics to justify their genocide and Sinhalese Buddhist racism. These people should know better , and it these people are the so called elite of the Sinhalese society , I shudder to think what lies beneath this and their thoughts. As for Sambhandan and the TNA I do think they are opportunists who kept quiet all these time and have now woken up , but there is no other alternative for the Tamils , however to be fair to them , they may have tried their best to work through the system but have now lost their patience.

      RSSS,

      “Yes we know now many of these countries that are now calling for this investigation , like the USA , Britain , India” – When these countries didn’t have the power to stop SL committing so said, “genocide” as you put it, do you still trust these puppet countries will do some magic as and when you demand?

      You people decided to go for war with a legitimate govt, you people clapped and wowed when your appointed terrorist leader, a stubborn war-monger single-handedly decided to brutally kill the innocent children, men, and women who were easy targets at public places in a worst inhuman way possibly heard. You wowed when your own children were forcibly made to carry arms instead of school books. You saluted when your own women were brainwashed to be used as another stock of human-bombs. You admired your leader’s killing skills when he killed an Indian PM and an SL President. During all these times, you didn’t know there was a thing called HUMAN RIGHTS.

      When you were defeated, your war-monger and arrogant and foolish Tiger leader is no more, you instantly carried victim cards and cry-babies, and portraying yourselves as helpless innocents waiting for other countries to poke in their noses to bring fair justice, in an innovative attempt to take revenge on war winners.

      Come on, when you decided to go with war and gave your full support, funding to ruthless terrorist group, you should have also been prepared NOT to be cry-babies of consequences? It is a shame now man.

        We all know that you are a Sinhalese Buddhist Fascist , posting under a Muslim identity , to deliberately to create further animosity between the Tamils and Muslim Tamils. Just read all your posts/comments , extremely anti Tamil and very pro Sinhalese Buddhist Fascist. The Biggest terrorists in the island was not the LTTE , they were no innocents but 95% of the terror was committed by the Sri Lankan state and its armed forces and 99% of their victims were innocent Tamil civilians. They killed over 300000 innocent Tamil civilians , around 145000 in May 2009 and chased off more than a million Tamils from the island and made another million Indian origin estate Tamils, who had lived in the island for more than 150 years and earned most of the foreign exchange, stateless. A Sinhalese soldier hit to kill Rajiv Gandhi and he was made a state hero and was not punished. The LTTE is the child of Sinhalese racism and Indian opportunism and the Tamils suffered as everyone’s hands. You are indeed a Sinhalese Buddhist Fascist. Abdul Cader my foot , post as Somapala

    Ha……..ha………..ha…………..ha…………………… Dr. Dolittle Do more Tell me when was Kerala (Kochi) formed ??????????????. When was Darvadians settled in Godavary ???????????. At that time who was there in Kochi . As per Ramayanaya Nobody was there. Even your Great, Great…………………………………….Great grand father was not there. Even a Chimpanzee was not there. But it clearly indicate existence of few tribal gangs in Lanka( Land Just away from south of India. Do you accept it or not Dr. Dolittle ?????? Among few clan Yakka was Majority. When settled in Godavary darvidians even did not know about Sorcery. If Kerala people knew the sorcery it should be after creation of country called Kerala (Kochi). But records available with us talk about more than hundred & twenty five thousand years old souls of Yakka ancestors. Our sorcery system purely based on Yakka ancestors souls. But your Kerala creations purely based on gods & goddess as per Hinduism belief. but our Sorcery system purely based on souls of yakka ancestors, Kerala creations based on gods & goddess Yadinis ( appeals) but our system based on powers of late ancestors via tempting powers with sounds waves while chanting mantra in different manner in different tones in different sounds waves. Yadinis does not have to have sounds techniques. It is only a request or appeal . As such these two systems entirely different systems. Your one is base on Hinduism belief but our one is base on animistic belief. Animism based sorcery systems unique to African continent whereas Hinduism based sorcery unique to Kerala. As such your attempt to equal those two systems and thereby your attempt to link my ancestry to Kochi is purely a bullshits. As a Dr. when talk something talk with through knowledge not like gossip mongers.

        I know you Muslims want to get others also to your boat as you Muslims were refugees from south India. Your ticket was your base born Identity south Indian dalite Gonnu (street prostitute ) + Muslims Afghan soldiers. That is the Muslims community Identity here. Your ancestors ticket was free of charged granted by Gujarati & south Pakistani Traders who were trading & Islaminizing East Indies now called Indonesia. Our ancestors were seafarers who came here on their own with their vessel called Cannons made out of woods trunks tied together. I did same voyage from Madagaskar to Kalamatiya early 80s with Japanese & Australians Scientists to prove that point, Our Vedda community came same way from Mozambique Coast . May be around 250,000 or more years ago, But early Hominids like Homo aragusta , Homo Naladi & homo sapience used sea beaches routs to come to India and go beyond. Your Allah is a bullshit. Men or women were not made out of clay in your so called Heaven. I know you are Muslim used this Buddadasa name to defame our religion. Your name may be sham or something like that. .

        Buddadasa Alias Shame Ask your Kochi friend Name Ranjith is Malayalam name or Sanskrit name ?????? Also ask him if they were or are seafarers why could they not be able to colonized Lakadive Islands, Maldives Islands & Deyago Garsia Island ????? Still those Islanders speaks ELU derivatives like us . Earlier Islanders were Buddhists as per ruins found. now Islamist due to famous scenario involving south Pakistani or Gujarati or Indonesian Islamic priest. He deceived Islanders saying his god can stop sea erosion in a night if all convert to Islam. Major Erosion occurred due to tsunami. Priest knew that it reseed in few hours. as he was an experience traveler with Gujarati & south Pakistani marine traders . That way all Islanders become Islamist. Do you know that history Mr. Shame or Buddadasa ???? Our ancestors stopped communications with them ever-since.

        Kochi migrant still live there around Katunayake. ask your kochi friend to go and meet them if he want . Your minister called Ravi karunanayake from same trait. I suppose. ask him to meet . we are not fucking Indians like you Muslims. We are Austronesian from Sihanaka area of Madagascar. Not Fucking Tamils or Fucking Indians..In Sihanaka we practiced fighting art called Moraigan. here we did Angan. Worked for Kingdom since 300 BCE. refer stone scriptures available in Anuradhapura & Polonnaruwa. In kotte era we were high officials of kings. In Kandy dynasty our ancestors held Highest post. Maha Senavi (or captain Athapaththu) vouch for it. In Anuradhapura & Polonnaruwa Eras we hold Kingdoms security high posts. The other Eras our Ancestors hold highest posts not only military but the other high ranking posts. As such we were not Vasoori or Cholora carriers like your Kochi friend ancestors. as per our traditions we are suppose to kill south Indians at sight. at our one ancestor ‘s advised you refugees survived here but king’s advised was to massacre all. Do not talk history refugee Muslim fellow. You do not have history in this land called Sinhalay.

          Ranji ,
          Oh I am so very sorry if I offended you enough to write so much about your honoured ancestors and their wooden cannons.
          Tell me, did your honourable ancestors have tails like my pet Ranjit ? Were they able to wag them too?
          Did your ancestors spend time in Kochi on the way from Madagascar? Did they meet any horny Muslims there? I don’t blame you for being angry, because those Kochi Muslims have big p***ks .
          Budu saranai. Buddhadasa.

    My simple argument to ascertain how many of the civilians were killed at the end of the war in May 2009, it is an accepted fact that the number of windows is between 80,000 to 90,000 in the north and east. If so, where did the men go? How about all other children and grandparents got killed during the war?

      Ari Arivalagan – War is all about killing the opponents, isn’t it? Why did you step into it? Where did your freedom struggle turn into terrorism? Why didn’t the people who funded the war have the control on stubborn Prabakaran’s wrong choices and decisions? Why didn’t you appoint a far-sighted political advisor to lead an arrogant and ignorant Prabakaran (This could have avoided Rajiv killing)? When the Govt offered many alternative ways to end the war peacefully, why didn’t Prabakaran pick the one best for his people and settled with it?

      The fault is all yours to have a wrong leader to lead your struggle (which he turned into terrorism) and have no control on him. Blaming the Govt when defeated, is not fair. Under the legitimate Govt, at least you have a say which you didn’t have under Prabakaran’s control – Which is good for you?

        Abdul K.
        1) Freedom struggle turned into terrorism because the so called TULF’s irresponsible rhetoric eg. Killing of the Mayor of Jaffna.
        2) People who funded war effort:-
        I don’t think people willingly funded the war effort.War
        was a consequence of the political omissions and
        commissions of all governments from 1948
        ,1956,1972 1983 up to date that affected the Tamils,
        other minorities and even the majority community.
        3) Stubborn Prabakaran was a deranged vengeful murderer.
        a man who could not be reasoned with, a bigoted idiot.
        4) He did not even heed or even listen to his
        soul confidant and advisor Anton Balasingam
        the only person he tolerated.
        Anton in his utter disgust is said to have given up advising Prabakaran
        So what far sightedness are you on about?
        5) I think Prabakaran was used by some one else to kill
        Rajiv Gandhi former Indian PM the who could have again
        become PM in 1991. If you know whom why not spit it out
        now with supporting evidence.
        6) Your problem in saying that Tamils were defeated
        reveals your own inability to understand is just as
        stubborn as Prabakaran’s on whom your rely for your
        own mistaken premise about sole Sinhala Only
        sovereignty under an Islamic pseudo.

    What about the atrocities committed on Tamils in 1956 1958 1977 1981 & 1983, before the war between LTTE and Govt armed forces. Do you bring these too under your ” killing the opponents” and justify it. ?

    The TNA Samapathan is greatest splitters of our Time, he was born to partition of island by New form of struggle to created New division Sri lanak by dream of that extremist of Separatism of “Tamil Eealm”..
    We have no confidence at all of TNA and Samapathan ; of this man who was behind LTTE launch war against Democracy of an Island. He jepodiszed Rule of Law by newly reveled evidences has proven many parts of North and other provinces an armed cellars are operatizing under covered operation by new schemes are funded by foreign intelligence; by support are training under covered operation which is in that key areas of an Island. See TNA and JVP brief history after 2015 January 8th what has actually happen to Universal franchised of Citizens of Sri Lankan by TNA and JVP political movement
    1 Look at he ever-never talk of North and Eastern an Election of Provincial was indefinitely pospsonted by UNP of RW and CBK leadership.
    2 Samapathan’s led TNA that set of policies of Kept silent ON by that UNP rejected of Right to VOTES of Provincial shows he wanted that to suppressed right of key pillar of Democracy of People of Sri lanka.
    3 TNA is key Party was in the Parliament that partner who of support to UNP of Ranil Wicks
    MS and CBK postpone that PC election that Bill was approved by two-third majority voted of members.
    4 The aim day politics of TNA is that “political democracy” Right to Vote should take out of that ours book of practices Lankan democracy.
    5 Samapatah of TNA talk of killer of Tamils who were responsibilities of 40,000 was not accountability of MR led alliance. It was key responsibility and accountability of result of war politics launch by LTTE and
    TNA.

    Well, out of the missing 110,000 around 100,000 has to be the Vanni chicken consumed by Prabhakaran during his farcical Last Dinners with the next Suicide bomber/s.
    .
    No one should be more grateful to Mahinda and the SL Armed Forces than the Tamils for putting an end to this practice, Had it continued, there would have been no Tamils left in the Vanni and more importantly – no Vanni Chicken left for the benefit of the Chikkkkken Curry lovers.
