Mullivaikal Commemoration: “Let Us Move Forward Together To Reach Our Political Objectives” – Wigneswaran

Let us not continue to be pawns in the hands of scheming individuals or institutions. Let us agitate in a systematic, organized way for Justice for our affected people. Let us move forward together to reach our political objectives. I make this request of you on this emotive day. 

C.V. Wigneswaran

Let us identify ourselves as a determinable group of people, the Tamil People, who were subjected to genocide in this 21st century where human civilization has reached great heights.

By C.V. Wigneswaran

Mullivaikal Commemorative Programme 18.05.2009 – 18.05.2018 – Remembering the dead during the conclusion of the war at Mullivaikal, Meeting at 11am at Mullivaikal on 18.05.2018

My beloved people!

This is the fourth Mullivaikal Commemoration organized by us. 

Even though we have not been able to seek justice for our affected people who are steadfastly continuing to agitate in street corners for justice for their basic human rights and security and when a process of intensive Buddhist infiltration takes place in the North and East amidst the large contingents of occupied Military who have usurped our lands and resources, we are gathered here today with heavy hearts to remember the genocide that took place nine years ago at Mullivaikal. 

The human civilization has developed to great heights in this 21st century. It was the civilizational excellence of the world community that set up in the year 2006 a separate United Nations Human Rights’ Council directed to deter genocide aimed against the human race, ethnic cleansing and human rights’ violations.

Within three years of the Council being set up our people were subjected to genocide. Conducting a war without witnesses thousands of innocent people were brutally killed. No journalists nor human rights’ activists were allowed into this area. Having conducted successfully the genocide against the Tamil community by their war without witnesses, the government of that time was able to utter deliberate falsehoods in the world arena to misguide sovereign states. Such distorted deliberate utterances such as “zero casualties” by the government of that time restrained the International Community from preventing the genocide and allied crimes committed here. But no country could continue to shield themselves with lies and falsehoods and expect to travel far.

Today the International Community is wiser in that sufficient evidence has been posted to them buttressing the fact that what took place on 18th May 2009 was indeed genocide.

Though belated we are positive that the clear conscience of the world community would open up to the reality of the situation and opt to find justice for the genocide practiced here. Our people patiently await such enlightened activities on the part of the International Community. We are sad despite the passing of nine years such a transformation has not come over the International Community yet.

Many point to Ruwanda and Bosnia and discourage our people saying that justice will take decades thereby trying to convince us to consent to half baked solutions. 

But we must remember that genocide took place in Bosnia and Ruwanda at an earlier era unlike the Mullivaikal debacle. When the International Community had learnt lessons from previous genocides and allied offences they resolved that plausible preventive methods be planned to deter genocide and allied crimes in any community.

Indeed it was after the United Nations took noticeable steps in this direction that the Mullivaikal episode unfurled. When laws were in place such a distressful episode had been enacted. 

According to International Covenants and Agreements it is now accepted that the International Community has a right to prevent such brutal incidents taking place in individual Sovereign States.

If a country ignores human rights’ violations or shows tolerance towards such violations or prevents accountability such country cannot be considered mature and responsible. Not only that. Such countries would be identified as directly acting contrary to the expectations of the International Community. Toleration of such acts on the part of States would no doubt lead to Human Rights’ violations world over. Delayed justice is of course denied justice.

Today in this country even a murderer is not looked upon as an offender. If need be depending on their race and identity even murderers would be made into heroes. Those in the highest echelons of power have been heard to say that they will not allow even a single Sinhalese soldier to go to jail. Does that mean criminality depends on one’s race and community? 

Sri Lanka consented to install a hybrid Inquiry Panel before the world body. Now they refuse to abide by their promise and undertaking. This would point out to the world the manner in which our successive governments for 70 years have deceived and fooled our Tamil people. 

Still steadfast in their Mahawansa oriented perception the Sinhalese politicians consider the Mullivaikal debacle as the end of a Tamil – Sinhala war. That is why commemorative victory festivals are held in the South during this period. 

We have no paucity for Sinhala politicians who consider any offence committed against the Tamils by a Soldier is no offence at all. 

This is why we have been agitating that further extensions of time should not be granted to the Sri Lankan Government by the International Community to fulfill their obligations. They never would. Giving time would not make any difference. 

I like to refer to what the Commissioner said at the UN Human Rights’ sessions the other day. He asked “to explore other avenues including the application of universal jurisdiction, that could foster accountability.” May I join the Commissioner in making the said request of the International Community? 

No country chases their citizens to the street and usurp their habitations for their Armed Forces. It is exactly this that is happening in the North and East of Sri Lanka. Our people are agitating and demonstrating and protesting for years on the  streets. But their habitations have been seized by force by the Military and they have set up Buddhist places of worship, set up Agricultural Farms, Sea Resources farms, Holiday Resorts etc and continuing to occupy them.

Having handed over their loved ones to the Army our people are yet to be told the fate of such persons. These relatives have now continued for years to demonstrate and protest in front of  Army Camps. The Government just ignores their plight. The Southern media fail to publicize their protests. 

Those arrested under the PTA continue to be remanded for years without any prosecution. The Government under took to withdraw the PTA. But upto date it has not.

The Wanni area has become the citadel for Sinhala colonization. Specially in this Mullaitivu District both land and sea have been seized by force by the Armed Forces. 

When releasing the Peoples’ lands to them the Army obtains huge sums of money from the government given out of the funds earmarked for resettlement. We do not understand the logic behind this move. Money was apportioned by the International Community and the Sri Lankan government for resettlement of our people. How could such money be paid to the Armed Forces? The Armed Forces were not invited by us. They did not camp themselves here at our request. On the war coming to an end they should have withdrawn from the North and East. They usurped our lands and forcibly occupied them. They used all the resources and income from such lands themselves  so far. When they are finally asked to hand over the lands to our people the Army demands compensation. And they are paid out of money earmarked for the resettlement of our people. The people are not interested in paying compensation for those who deprived them of their lands and enjoyed all resources, income and benefits from their lands.  The Government has lost sight of the fact that such money belong to our people. We are wondering if the request of the Government under pressure from the International Community to hand back Peoples’ lands have been turned down by the Army, and as a sop to get around the Army, the Government is using our money to pay bribes  to get them out of our lands. 

This is the present state of affairs in the North and East. 

Any person who is familiar with the history of this Island during the last 70 years are aware that without pressure from the International Community or internal political pressure no government is prepared to tread the path of progress towards a political solution for the National Question. 

I make bold to call upon the International Community on this occasion to resolve to give political pressure upon our Sri Lankan Government to coax them to fulfill their obligations. The International Community must realize nine years after the war had ended the successive Sri Lankan Governments have continued to keep a determinable group of people, the Tamils under their military control in their area’ of historical habitation. 

My beloved people! 

Let us not continue to be pawns in the hands of scheming individuals or institutions. Let us agitate in a systematic, organized way for Justice for our affected people. Let us move forward together to reach our political objectives. I make this request of you on this emotive day.  

Let us identify ourselves as a determinable group of people, the Tamil People, who were subjected to genocide in this 21st century where human civilization has reached great heights.

I wish to move a few resolutions and expect all of you to support them. They are – 

1. From this year onwards every 18th of May in the coming years must be identified as Tamil genocide day.

2. The International Community without delay should set up an International strategic mechanism to ensure justice for the people affected. 

3. As a group of people who have faced institutional genocide, the International Community must come forward to assure us a sustainable political settlement based on our sovereignty, our homelands and our individuality. 

4. Considering the suffering undergone by our community let the International Community identify our suffering as mass disaster situation and arrange the necessary infrastructures to rehabilitate our people by directly helping us. 

5. It is our desire that the Armed Forces must withdraw from our areas of traditional habitation. The latest ruse adopted is that the Armed Forces have come forward to shower some facilities and benefits on our people in order to continue to occupy our areas. Let us beware of Trojan gifts.

6. Next year it would be the Tenth anniversary since brutal massacre at Mullivaikal. Let us dedicate 18th of May every year as a day of Mourning and as a symbol of our Unity. Let us resolve that in the coming years we would bring all interest groups among us together, appoint an appropriate committee devoid of political party affiliations and regional considerations to organize an appropriate Day of Remembrance on 18th May in the coming years.

Let us pray for peace to the souls of all those who died in Mullivaikal nine years ago. 

We condole this day with the relatives of all who lost their dear ones! 

May our prayers and sentiments soothen the affected hearts of those who are in grief and pain. 

With a heavy heart I depart.

*Justice C.V. Wigneswaran, Chief Minister – Northern Province

    So Sri Lanka’s war against terrorism in which army killed the terrorist leader who is accused of killing political leaders and thousands of people in this country IS a Genocide!

    Is the government planning to give more power to this racist?

      The supposedly 10,000 to 40,000 civilians at mullivaikal, who were helpless and massacred by the army are terrorists in your sordid eyes as well. Wake up from your racist sleep.

        Who counted it? The UN reports estimate the dead between 7000-8000 of which nearly 5000 were LTTE cadres.

        Who shot at fleeing civilians?
        Who sent suicide bombers amongst civilians?
        who used civilians as a human shield?
        who used civilians to build trenches putting their lives in danger?

        And why the hell those Tamils ran towards the army asking for help? The one who needs to wake up from the racist sleep is YOU facist Tamil. It was thanks to our food, medicine and salaries those ungrateful souls lived for 30 years that too under LTTE ruled areas. They filled their hungry stomachs thanks to us. It was us who sent food to those wretched people to live when LTTE were blowing food supplying ships.

        What were you doing that time? Sending money to LTTE to kill more and more people?

          You should educate yourself to learn to express your thoughts in a polite and civil manner. Your language that is beneath civility says it all. If there is nothing to hide why do you think that those involved in the war do not want to submit themselves to legal scrutiny. Only those with guilt and have something to hide get provoked and angry, for they know well that their bluff has been called. Even one innocent life lost in any war, let alone this cruel and brutal war, is one in too many for any civilised human. Let’s leave it at that!

            well hello who is here teaching me politeness and civility? Machan, this is a rag maintained by LTTE scum in London and some exiled pro LTTE media fellows. What do you think this is to display so called politeness? And since when this has been a platform to be polite? The LTTE scum sh1t daily here.

            If there is nothing to hide why do you think that those involved in the war do not want to submit themselves to legal scrutiny///
            which legal scrutiny? Why should any government forces that waged a legitimate war to destroy a terrorist organisation subject itself to any scrutiny? Has any war winning army ever done that.

            Forget politeness and civility dear, you lack even the basic common sense. Any self respecting Sri Lankan who was a victim of LTTE terrorism will get provoked and get angry at this vile attempt to promote LTTE terrorism and brainwash another generation of Tamil kids. What is not to be angry about that?

              Sach you are coming out with rubbish because of your bigoted mind. No one in this world should be above law and should be subjected to legal scrutiny if there is any wrong done. There is no argument about the legitimacy of government forces waging a war to destroy LTTE. The problem here is that government did not adhere itself to the rules of conducting a war, which requires legal scrutiny, which you do not seem to understand. Denying food and medicine to people under siege by giving false statistics, deliberate targeting of hospitals and safe zones housing refugees, use of cluster bombs and chemical weapons which are banned, summary executing of those who surrendered and allowing wounded people to die without medical aid. There is ample evidence for all these, which are crimes against humanity and those who committed it and have command responsibility have to be punished. Like you, any self respecting Tamil who was a victim of state terrorism will get provoked and get angry at your vile attempt to promote state terrorism and brainwash another generation of Sinhala kids. Answer to your question of “has any war winning army ever done that” is, Sri Lanka is a minion state.

          Killing was committed by both sides.
          If the military is innocent you would have called for an independent inquiry yourself to prove you are right all along.
          There is no secret that independent journalists, NGOs and UN observers were barred from witnessing the killing, if it was committed only by LTTE the government would have invited them to witness it.

          According to the registries of Mullaitivu and Kilinochchi Districts there were 416,000 packed in the war zone though the government insisted only 70,000 and food and medicine only for these people were allowed to by supplied by the ICRC. Everybody knows 300,000 came out alive though many were maimed, how was it possible for 300,000 came out of 70,000?

          We can go forward only if the actual number of dead in that war was accounted for. The truth must come out for the whole country to realise the depth of atrocities committed by both parties. Then only the people will seek a reasonable solution to the problem.

            Dilan,

            How many liters or how many kilos were imported? And by what? Do you think no intelligence agency knew anything about that?

              Shenal, foreign intelligence agencies know it and will expose it at the correct time. Incinerators to burn dead bodies and sulphuric acid barrels to dissolve ashes were imported from a far eastern super power. Cluster bombs had been supplied by a South Asian Muslim country and chemical weapons (chlorine and nerve gas) were imported from an east European communist country. This is why Sri Lanka government does not want to face an inquiry by an international panel, as records of ship and air craft movements bringing these to Sri Lanka are available. Praneeth Eknaligoda was killed because of his exposure of chemical weapons. I was told by a good Sinhala Air force friend that Pakistani pilots were used to indiscriminately bomb Tamil civilians in the last stages of war when Sinhala pilots refused to commit such atrocity.

              Chemical substances were used for disposal of the bodies and were dumped into the sea. It was when investigating into the use of chemical substance and making preparations to publish his findings that journalist Prageet Ekneligoda was abducted and made to disappear. The military authorities will not tolerate any one trying to pry into their misdeeds.

        The civilians were killed by Tamil Terrorists, not the Sri Lankan forces. The Sri Lankan forces liberated 270,000+ Tamils, both civilians and terrorists. No good complaining because it was the Tamils who wanted war to kill Sinhalese and got what they deserved. Idiot!

      They would never be seen as civilized folks.
      Us the sinhalas calling ourself BUDDHISTS to behave so is beyond all ethics and morals.
      Rajapakshes should be hung by their balls, for all what they have done – deli berately to this nation.
      Instead very same folks to go after them and lick their asses, – most of all, those Derana Hiru and Sirasa should be bombed down forever. ground realities to be exposed inthis country.

      Justice C.V. Wigneswaran, Chief Minister – Northern Province

      “when a process of intensive Buddhist infiltration takes place in the North and East amidst the large contingents of occupied Military who have usurped our lands and resources,”

      I beg to differ.
      I am of the view and I stand by it that it is not an intensive Buddhist infiltration rather it is not only an intensive but also an accelerated Sinhala/Buddhisation of land, religion, people, power and scarce resources of the entire island.
      It seems after the end of the war the state organs are actively pursuing the central theme, objective and purpose of their very existence in North and East.

      The purpose could be many, hoping to build a Sinhala/Buddhist theocracy, a Sinhala/Buddhist fascist state, justification for a ruler’s kleptocracy, a protective cover for accountability, a good place to hide crooks, murderers, rapists and war criminals, anything ……crazy …………………………………… but a Liberal Democracy.

        A simple practical solution is available to you for this problem. As I always say Tamils (Tamil speaking people) who are presently occupying areas outside NE must be encouraged to move towards into NE. TNA must carry out an intensive propaganda campaign for this purpose. You must extend your full assitance. You must educate Tamil children over the genocidal nature of the Sinhalese. CV has started his “genocide” campaign again and hopes to agitate the Tamils which suits my purpose – motivate Tamils to move away from OUR areas to YOUR area. I don’t see any other way of creating a Tamil Homeland.

        Wigneswaran Talk about buddhisization. Even the Stupid Vedda is blind to when Tamils write that Sinhala people are low caste Tamils from South India. So, we ask Tamils to be Sinhalized. Become buddhists too. YOu will have better chances in your life because we were Tamils at point as your tribalists say and we do not discrminate you. If not because of your Tribalism you suffer.

      Dear Sri,
      .
      Not all Sinhalese support this denial of responsibility for what you have suffered. See what “Desperate Sinhalaya” and Ben Hurling say below.
      .
      Nor am I saying this only because Vigneshwaran, in this political speech, has cornered us. See what I have said here:

      War against terrorists was won.
      But that was not just collective forces only did the job. Entire folks took part in there.
      Ballige putha Rajapakshes though painted their names to have mastered that, it was a lie.
      LTTE was weakened in side them by end of 2009. This started with death of their leader of political wing and severl other factors.

      AND AGAIN the winning against the terror with in lanken grounds is not a thing to celebrate since the war was against own folks. SRILANKENS fought against srilankens. If some are felt other waya round should be crushed by their buds.
      We need peace and harmony for all lankens not just for some.
      Those by the name of Lanken buddhism, abusing it to core, but make efforts to be above others are the extremists in this country, Their sympathisers have been abused by their mantras. Behind the mantha what lies is nothing else, the POLITICAL POWER intoxication. We need Rjapakseh men to be away from lanken politics. They really belong to lanken prisons going by their higher criminal energies. There they did not work different. No matter Notherners of Southerners, they took the lives of them mercilessly.

        Hatharabirikatharina, you are right and you are wrong. And I am not talking in riddles.
        First the “rights”: You are right when you say Ballige putha Rajapakshes is not the only one who should take credit for winning the war. What about me? I also did my part by running away to SA. You too did your part unwittingly by being a bogus lanken refugee in Germany. We know that the Berlin venue where you worked was a sh… (sorry) meeting place for GTF. (Readers, please note that GTF does not stand for German Toilet Federation. It stands for Global Terrorist something or the other). Anyway, the microphones fixed in the toilet bowls gave everything away. (And when I say everything, I mean everything, including the shit, which one had to sift through to get at the pay dirt).
        Now your ‘Wrongs’: Yes. Let me see. No you do not have ‘wrongs’. Only ‘rights’. Even about Rajapakshes being Ballige puthas. That makes Hatharabirikatharina the mother of all Ballige Puthas.

          Agree. Innovation was the key to defeating the racist, fascist terrorists. Squads operating behind enemy lines did a fantastic job.

        Were you born yesterday? White vans is a simply hit squad that helped us win the war and it is a counter terror tactic used by all countries around the world. Some people do not deserve to live. That is it. If we had a hit squad back in 70s where we could hunt and finish Prabhakaran or even Wijeweera, a lot of people would have not met with their deaths. This is not about being Horny, Ranil worshiper, it is a defence requirement

        Rajapaksa will return, and idiots like Wiggie will do that.

        To give you a lesson about white vans, when the MEGA idiot Ranil came to power in 2001-4 he removed all security barricades in colombo. The result was LTTE sent suicide bombers and intel guys to colombo. It was the white vans that picked these guys up and cleaned the city by ensuring idiots like you to live.

There are thousands of enemies of Lanka living in several foreign countries. What can you do them other than lodging complains to authorities in those countries and sulk in a corner when they ask you to get off. Ask Sinhala racists living in those countries how they live like dogs with their tails tucked between their legs. How do you expect these cardboard weerayas who start shivering when they hear that LTTE supporters are around, to even lift a finger against enemies of Lanka. Without coming out with such nonsense like a frog in the well, learn to live in a humble manner.

This is the reason I left Sri Lanka in 1990, at the age of 44 years. But if I have no choice of avoiding both of you, I would rather live with Prabakaran who is a Tamil terrorist than you who is a Sinhala terrorist. Ask your Sinhala racist friends who had received abuse from me and did nothing about it. Even after Prabakaran is dead for more than nine years, why are you still hiding under the bed. Stop being a coward and come out to the open, giving your true identity, then I can decide whether you deserve to live.

      You want Rpakse back? I said it once and i will say it again. It’s the Tamil man in Jaffna who decides who the Sinhala president in Colombo is. This has happened in the last three presidential elections. The “Sermon on the Window Ledge” is all about that and is a meek acknowlegement of that fact by the very man who you clamour should be brought back. If the Tamil man is to be out of the equation there should be a landslide (very unlikely) which will limit the ministers to 30 and a certain constitutional crisis with Pirapakaran II appearing and with him another war, this time with UN and India against us.

Out of 225 MPS 200 MPS are Sinhalese, this we will increase next general election, wait and see. Never ever trust Tamils. Right from the independent our wealth robbed by Tamils, this is well known secret also. Raja-virodhi Sambandan is RAAJYAYA VIRODHI MAN. His name is suitable for that.

    Sir,
    No question, Tamils have suffered a lot. No question Sri Lanka must strive to chart a different course in future. Many things we can do much better.
    However:
    1. Such wanton MISUSE of the word GENOCIDE for political expediency is disappointing. Coming from a man a lot of Sinhalese consider to be a reasonable Sri Lankan. It makes a mockery of the word GENOCIDE.
    2. The IC can nudge SL become more perfect. However, true reconciliation can only be derived from the diverse population that inhabits this Island. The so-called, 21st century IC will only deliver organized hypocrisy as always. IC will interfere as CM dreams to force the hand of SL’s population, only when geopolitics in the Indian ocean dictates so. Further, you run the risk of casting the entire Tamil population in SL as internationally, conspiring traitors in the eyes of the Sinhalese. A label Sinhalese racists would love to stick permanently on Tamils. CM is playing into their hands.
    3. Armed Forces should remain inside bases in peacetime. Armed Forces should also reflect the ethnic diversity of our country. However, Please note Sri Lanka’s Armed Forces are entitled to set up bases in any part of the Island. The so-called “areas of traditional habitation” are a part of Sri Lanka. Not a foreign land.
    4. Mullivaikal was the heart-breaking, culmination of a 30 year long, much-hated tragedy. To look at it isolated and ignore the suffering endured by all Sri Lankans, all over the Island is an insult to the innocent lives lost at Mullivaikal. It amounts to political exploitation of lives lost in Mullivaikal, in favor of Tamil national romantic utopia.
    5. A National Day of Remembrance is a great idea. It should not be a platform for Tamil or Sinhalese racists to blow their disgusting trumpets. Rather a day of reflection & sorrow. TO MAKE SURE SUCH ATROCITIES WILL NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN IN OUR BEAUTIFUL LAND!

      4. “. Mullivaikal was the heart-breaking, culmination of a 30 year long, much-hated tragedy. “

      In fact it was a culmination of ideas of concocted identities took hold in the island since the advent of Aryan Anagarika Homeless Dharmapala.

      3. “Please note Sri Lanka’s Armed Forces are entitled to set up bases in any part of the Island”

      What for.
      Its has been well known oppressive tool of the state, irrespective of which party is in power, ………. Why does this country need more than 300,000 members of armed forces, with hundreds of thousands of General, Brigadiers, Colonels, Majors, Captains, …………. ? It is not going to fight a war against foreigners anyway. Sri Lanka needs large army only for oppressing the people as it has done since independence.

      It is for Hindians to stop the division of this island not for the Sri Lankan armed forces. If the state respects and ensure the democratic rights of ordinary people ensured the right to safety, security, life, habitat, livelihood, dignity, equal opportunity, ……..live in their chosen life style, freedom to think, freedom of speech, ……………………… no one needs a huge unproductive, idling, thieving, raping, ………….. men in uniform.

      1. Since the CM is a professional legal expert I guess he knows what he is talking about. About two years he defined Genocide (which I cannot remember or I simply ignored) in the context of Sri Lanka. If and when I access the document I will pass it on to you. In the meantime no harm in demanding him for Definition/clarification/explanation,……….

        Native,
        Sri Lanka’s Military swelled in size as a direct result of the world’s longest-running brutal conflict. Numbers were a necessary evil to take care of that VVT Pol Pot. I salute all soldiers who rescued this country from Fat Pig’s 30 years long, blood-thirsty grip. Today I can walk anywhere in our country in peace. Except for those Zones sold to the Chinese. Under pressure from the Jack-Boot of Chinese Debt Diplomacy by treacherous politicians from SLFP & UNP. Not to mention politicians from TNA & SLMC who do not give a damn about this country except for peddling ethnic-minority racism and religious fanaticism.
        Cheers!
        PS: No doubt SL Armed Forces have a terrible track record in HR violations. Not least committing heinous crimes on their corrupt, self-serving political masters’ behalf. Challenge now is to make SL Armed Forces more professional. Especially the Navy must be second to none in the region. Sri Lanka’s has untold wealth in the surrounding waters.

      Ben Hurling, You are hurling pompous words at Justice C.V. Wigneswaran, Chief Minister – Northern Province.
      *
      What is your meaning of GENOCIDE. Genocide is the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation. This is what I know. This is probably what Justice Wigneswaran was referring to.
      *
      IC may not even nudge. Should that stop us from putting the facts on record. It is not CM who is playing into Sinhalese racists ‘ hands. Sinhalese racists hold our lives in their hands.
      *
      Sri Lanka’s Armed Forces are entitled to set up bases in any part of the Island. That is not what is being contested. What is being challenged is very clearly stated.
      *
      You are misinterpreting the words of CM. He is not exploiting lives lost in Mullivaikal. Even to suggest that he is doing so is naivety.
      *
      The occasion is Mullivaikal Commemoration, not a National Day of Remembrance. Keep to yourself your confusion. Don’t muddle the waters.

        Thappu,
        Despite this kind of disagreements, I fully respect CM Wigneswaran. 60 000 Sinhalese youth were slaughtered during the 1989/90 JVP insurgency in South of SL. Show me one place Mr. Wigneswaran has called it a GENOCIDE. Not as Chief Minister – Northern Province or as a Judge. Did many Tamils perish caught up in the cross-fire? Yes! Was it a terrible tragedy. Yes! For all Sri Lankans. Was it a GENOCIDE. NOPE! To misuse this historic tragedy to further stimulate Tamil racist project is to lay the foundation for a far bigger tragedy in the future. I don’t think Tamil racists care too much about the human cost of such calamity again. So long they can realize Romanticized Tamil Nationalistic Utopia. Keep wasting your time. Rather than helping to build a better Sri Lanka.
        Cheers!

          I understand your concern about C M’s selective approach to mass killing however please refer to the UN defined legal definition of Genocide below:

          Legal definition of genocide
          Genocide is defined in Article 2 of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (1948) as “any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical,
          racial or religious group, as such: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part1 ; imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; [and]
          forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.”

          Please see if 1971 and 1987-1990 war crimes fit the definition.

          Lets forget the terminology of what had happened in 1971 and between 1987-90 lets look at the scale of war crimes, which obviously warranted investigation. Chandrika appointed three commissions which identified 30,000 cases of disappearances, found the perpetrators, gathered evidence and were ready to be charged when her uncle General Anurudha Ratwatte prevented further actions against the persons who were involved in those disappearances simply because that would upset the members of armed forces who were actively fighting the war.

          However I am amazed by the inaction of the JVP and the Human Rights Activists of this island on war criminals of 1971 and 1987/1990 except one or two genuinely concerned citizens, such great souls as Kishali Pinto-Jayawardena, ………… Do you know why JVP is keeping mum? I have asked active and leading members of JVP which should help to define what happened to the innocent people during their armed up rising.

          Ben Hurling,
          * It is not advisable for you to overlook the reasons behind killings. Deliberate killing is not to be equated with any other.
          * Tamils perished under circumstances that were different; not all were deliberate.
          * Your, ‘I don’t think Tamil racists care too much about the human cost of such calamity again’, is quite vague for me to respond. I don’t know who and who you have in mind.
          * Justice Wigneswaran had played his role as a Judge; his role today is as Chief Minister.
          * I act only when the situation calls for it. How is that wasting my time?

      Thank you be for a great summary and agree word by word. If I may add we need to have compulsory national/military service in the armed forces by all citizens may just do the trick of bringing generations together.

      A common memorial for all who died in our country since independence should be a national mourning day reflecting the real “peace and reconciliation” mindset for all to gear up for a great future together. Perhaps we can make this into a National Environmental Day that all the subjects of Mother Lanka should be asked to clean up the country “together” the mounting trash/solid waste management. Children will learn the most important things in life than focusing on divisive politics to via this activity. Any visiting head should be asked to pay homage to this memorial too so they know we are not to be played for their geo political games.

        Although Congress Lost the Election they won the battle, to kill the Mahaveeran Pirahaparan who destroyed the Congress Party single handed by elimination the only capable charismatic leader they had to go till at least 2030. ,
        Will Congress Party allow the Vellala Sandanaya to officially commomorate their only Leader’s Killer every year , just only 30 Ks away from their Border, even if Vellala CM and his mentor Sampathar get the Eeelaam from Dr Ranil, Mangala and Rajitha?…

          I am not sure what you are insinuating however why do you think a section of the Congress party didn’t have a hand in the assassination or big powers didn’t benefit from the murder?

    Even, as recently as one month back, the navy had, in a surprise move, forcibly occupied a section of Karainagar Hindu College premises (In the Northern Province) and the students and staff are attending school in fear. Protests by everyone concerned, including a U.N.P. Minister, who is an old student of the school, Predesha Sabah, Education Department Authorities, had not solved the problem.

    Can this sort of encroachment by security forces, take place in any other part of the country?

    What a shame, he is worried about Buddhism coming to Jaffna. Does he think North is already a separate country? By the way who are his Grand Children.. Buddhists? Is he going to reject them as well? Politicians like him, especially the surrogates of the remnant LTTE should be kicked out of the country. When he uses the word “celebration” does he mean that he is celebrating the loss of LTTE war which means he is celebrating the victory of the SL armed forces, or is he mourning the death of LTTE? If its the second it cannot be a celebration but a remembrance. Is there no laws in SL to take this guy into custody for trying to divide the country?

    I heard most Tamils in the north are against your Tribalism. Besides you di dnot do anything to Tamils. I remember you told Tamil girls from Mulathiv to focus the police force as the future employment. Some how, in brief, people say you won’t be winning in the North. That is why you need this tribalist talk. Tamils should understand that Tamil politicians di dnot work for them. Sinhala people did better for them. Most Tamils know it.

HE wants to go t aSinhala buddhist area but get money from Muslims where he is trying to represent. HE cannot talk about muslims instead he is talking about Tamils to show that he is aminoroty supporter. He is LSSP but he is another very corrupt Minister who cme from National list.

    Vignashwaran does not know the history of Sri Lanka because he is a descendant of an invader from Hindusthan or a slave brought by western colonial parasites or an illegal immigrant from Hindusthan. In 3rd century B.C. a group of invaders from Hindusthan landed in Sinhale. Since then these Para Hindusthanis invaded Sinhale 17 times but they were chased away. However, when there was a weak king these invaders colonized northern part of the country. When a strong person became the king, these invaders were defeated and unified the country but some invaders were allowed to remain. Sinhalayo coined the term ‘Demala’ to refer to these invaders.

    “…who have usurped our lands and resources”
    That is not your land and resources. That is land of Sinhalayo colonized by Demala invaders from Hindusthan.
    Vignashwaran also does not know the meaning of Genocide. According to Cambridge Dictionary of English genocide definition is: the murder of a whole group of people, especially a whole nation, race, or religious group.
    The Sri Lankan Government did not launch a military operation to kill Demalu. Sri Lankan Government launched a military operation against a terrorist group armed with tanks, light air crafts and heavy weapons and went on killing members of the Armed Forces, Police and unarmed civilians. Obviously in such a situation there could be civilian casualties. That is not Genocide.
    “Having handed over their loved ones to the Army our people are yet to be told the fate of such persons.”
    Similarly, having captured by LTTE Tamil terrorists and disappeared, Sinhala people are also yet to be told the fate of such persons.

      “That is land of Sinhalayo colonized by Demala invaders from Hindusthan.”

      A lie told often enough becomes the truth.
      -Vladimir Lenin

      You are quite right, Demelas colonized and converted to Sinhala/Buddhism.
      When are you leaving?

    No doubt the kith and kin of the Matale Hospital mass grave carry the same grief. But the Wimalawansas are on the other side cheering and goading and gorging on the scraps thrown.

      why hiding behind Matale mass graves? Cant you celebrate LTTE leader Prabhakaran like without hiding behind Matale?

    Another thing people can see the real nature (for extreme tube light fellows) of Tamils who comment here as if they are holding some moral highground and stand in the middle. For example the guy like Native Vadda (Illegitimate Tamil in SL) goes by a neutral name to show some moderateness in his Tamil chauvinism is actively supporting what Wiggie is doing.

    Wigneshwaran
    Where will your resolutions take this country? Where is the balance in your speech? Where have you included the misdeeds of the representatives of Tamils? If you were speaking to the right minded people you could have written this speech very differently. I think you are another politician like the triumvirate. You are leading or rather misleading the Tamils of Sri Lanka to start another war and get killed. I would classify this as a hate speech despite the clever usage of language to avoid such an accusation.

    Native Vedda: You addressed this CM Wigneswaran and said: “I beg to differ”. This is a SOVEREIGN country and NO ONE needs to “BEG” anyone to differ; unless that “anyone”, possibly you still lives under the SLAVERY system of caste, creed, tribal mentality. It is time for you to be strong, free and independent and tell anyone “High” or “Low” to look deeply into his/her eyes and tell the TRUTH. Today, we have such a very valiant and a courageous woman from that Dambana Vedda community to contest in an election and get elected to a Local Government institution. I know, she would not “BEG” to differ with anyone in higher position in expressing her differences, just in the way you chose to address your “BOSS” that racist Wigneswaran . Please give up that “SLAVERY” styles- “I beg to differ”, in addressing anyone in this sovereign country, Sr Lanka and learn to make that woman from Dambana Vedda your heroin.

      ‘Beg to differ’ has nothing to do with begging. Should not be taken literally. The exact meaning: To differ respectfully, yet strongly.

      As usual you got the wrong end of the stick.
      I am not sure if you knew that you can be too polite to a person and undermine him. “I beg to differ” means depending on the circumstances, get lost, f*** off, sarcastically inviting them for a platonic duel, ……………………………..

      Slavery is in your history, religion, ………. thoughts, mind, body, action, ………… not in my. Either you want to enslave people one way or another, overtly or covertly, or very happy being a slave to unreasonable ideology, concocted recent identity, justify everything that is wrong with this island either by commission or omission. For example tribal mentality goes with your territory often taking issue with me regarding my lowest opinion of the noisy Sinhala/Buddhist minority.

      Some words from Mrs W M Shiromala for your thought “We have always been ignored. Even our problems have been ignored for many decades. The members of our communities go through a lot of health issues, and we don’t get to be educated, even like the other rural people. I know I cannot settle all issues, but someone has to try. Someday I will try to contest for the provincial election too. My people will want me to do that”

      Think about it, possibly it might help you to clear your parochially motivated one sided mind.

      Nothing personal.

    Buddhists should have rights to renovate or build ancient buddhist structures, including Viharas. Sri lanka is for everybody. So, wigneswaran can not ask buddhists to remove buddhist structures. On the other hand, if they want to remove the new ones, Tamils should remove everything HIndu from South. BBS and bhikkus should come to an agreement with Wigneswaran.

      Exactly. Sinhalese Buddhists are suppressed in the North. Now they have no right to erect a Buddha statue. Sumanthiran revealed that they were successful in removing many Buddha statues. HRC in Colombo has issued summons for the Army Commander for erecting a Buddha statue in an army camp in the North!!! Sinhalese Buddhists are awaiting impatiently until the Yahapalanaya duo come to the stage for presidential election campaigning to show how much they detest them.

        Champa, Tamils are not against religious Buddhism of erecting new Buddha statues or rebuilding ancient Buddhist structures. Tamils are against political Buddhism of erecting Buddha statues at main junctions in Tamil cities or putting up new Vihares where no Sinhalese live. Have Tamil Hindus have right to erect Hindu statues or build Hindu temples in Sinhala areas without the permission of Sinhalese. There are ancient Hindu temples lying buried in various parts of Sri Lanka, where the government will never grant permission to resurrect them. Also Hindu temples which were destroyed and Buddhist temples built over them like Abhayagiri, Isurumuniya and Dondra Vihare, will never be allowed to be rebuilt. Erecting Buddha statue in an army camp is an insult to Buddha, as he will never condone atrocities committed by army on Tamil civilians. This clearly shows that Sri Lanka army is a Buddhist outfit, and does not represent other communities.

    I heard that Wigneswaran had whispered to some one that since 1979, he wanted to come to politics and his only objective was Tamil-EELAM. I think he has whispered tha tin his Temple while addressing his God. some one over heard.

    These are the rantings of a nut job. One should not bother about it at all. There are plenty of nutters who contribute to CT.
    A classic will be this example a friend gave me, “If a dog barks at you on the street, will you bark back.”

    Speak nothing but good of the dead.Please allow them to rest in peace. Human beings are considered civilized because they commemorate their dear departed.That is how we are separate from animals.It is useless to call ourselves a Buddhist country and write it in the constitution we have to practice the preachings. War won battle lost.Unless MR and the clan lick the back side of the separatists like in 2005 they will never get their president. Can anyone count the number of ranaviru’s killed with the bullets Prabakaran bought with the cash MR gave the LTTE to prevent the north from voting. Facts are stubborn.

    “MAY 18” is the “Greatest Day of relief of all Sri Lankans after 30-years of LTTE terror.”
    .
    “MAY 18” the “Victorious Day the Sri Lankan Army won the war against the megalomaniac-LTTE-butcher eradicating terrorism and even defeating powerful countries which sponsored and funded him.”
    .
    “MAY 18” is the Day which marked the “END OF the world’s most ruthless, bloodthirsty, savage terrorist leader, PRABHAKARAN, who massacred innocent civilians, pulled eyes of living policemen, slaughtered pregnant women, babies, children, Buddhist samanera-monks and bombed the Most Sacred Jaya-Sri Maha Bodhi which is the oldest and the most longest surviving tree in the world and the only living symbol of Lord Buddha’s Enlightenment, killing Buddhist devotees, not to mention the END OF A BARBARIAN who perpetrated the greatest sacrilege by brutally bombing the most sacred pinnacle of Buddhists, the Temple of Tooth Relic of Lord Buddha.”
    .
    “MAY 18” is the “Day over 28,000 of brave Sinhalese military-families who consoled themselves suppressing the indelible pain of losing their sons, husbands and fathers with a sense of extreme pride of their selfless sacrifice to defend the country from terrorists.”
    .
    “MAY 18” is the “Day over 29,000 of brave Sinhalese military-families of wounded soldiers in wheelchairs without one leg/both legs, one arm/both arms, paralyzed, blind, deaf and in bed left with only an ethereal heartbeat, show the greatest honour and respect to their sons, husbands and fathers who are living symbols of battlefield gallantry, altruism and inspiration.”
    .
    “MAY 18” is the “Day the NATION commemorates and pay honour, respect, gratitude and appreciation to all fallen, wounded, served and serving war heroes.”
    .
    BACK OFF Wigneshwaran, “MAY 18” not a day for cowards-weaklings-fake-mourners and faint-hearts.
    .
    “MAY 18” is the Day of celebration of the extraordinary courage, dedication, sacrifice and patriotism of our brave war heroes !!!

    Sadly, reading these comments makes me believe we will never patch up our differences with honour and respect towards all communities and our social matrix will therefore become weaker. The weaker we get, the more susceptible we shall be to outside forces and we will sink in a mire of debt, deceit and ill-will in years to come.

    Sad to say, ours is a very racist society which is fanned by religious fanaticism and it will take a very strong man to destroy these beliefs and lead the country forward. If that man is Mahinda or Gota, so be it, for these jokers who now govern us haven’t proven anything to lampoon the Rajapakses as guilty. Until and unless proven guilty, every man is free.

    Wickramasinghe and Sirisena must rank as one of the most inefficient governments we have ever had in living memory. 😠
