My Child Will Go To School When President’s Granddaughter Goes To School

By Grusha Andrews

Daham Sirisena married today at the Colombo Hilton, instead of the Shangri-la, which was the originally intended venue that was damaged at the Easter Sunday bombings. Yes, the same Easter Sunday bombings that President Sirisena, the father of the groom was thrice warned of. Which he chose to neglect, because, after all, his family and his grand children were fine and safe, weren’t they? 

There was no reduction of the pomp and fanfare at the wedding of Daham Sirisena. Sirisena who went to Thirupathi with his family to obtain ‘blessings’ of the Thirupathi God for this wedding went on a solo trip to Singapore.

This wedding is being celebrated in all its opulence, noise and music whilst 250+ dead souls are hovering in the air. These dead souls include the souls of 45 innocent butterfly like children, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, sons and daughters. 

There were 250+ uninvited guests at Daham Sirisena’s wedding. Above the wedding ceremony hall at the Hilton, the souls of the victims of the Easter Sunday attacks must have floated over the heads of the mortal guests below. They must have sighed at the unspeakable injustice of the conduct of a negligent, callous President who thought it fit to roll before Thirupathi God forsaking the securing of his people.

These souls must be sighed at the brutality of a negligent, cunning Prime Minister and his imbecilic cousin state minister of defence who did not have the brains nor the integrity to sand up to the tragi-comic President when he kept them away from the National Security Council of six months. Six months!

These perished souls and those they left behind were forsaken by their God, in God’s house. They were blasted in to smithereens, to small pieces of flesh, fat, guts and bones. 

These perished souls were forsaken by their President, the cold hearted, brutal murderer by proxy who let this tragedy happen. 

These perished souls were forsaken by the Prime Minister, the cold hearted, brutal murderer by proxy who let this tragedy happen due to his conceit, inactivity and political calculation. All he was doing was to mark time till the next election. 

These perished souls were forsaken by the despicable professional political brutalists, the Rajapaksas, who established, supported, funded, and protected Wahhabists in the east. They are brutal murderers by proxy. How Gotabaya Rajapaksa declared his candidacy for president literally over the pulped pieces of flesh and blood of the victims of Easter Sunday says it all. 

These perished souls were forsaken by the Muslim politicians and Ministers who are complicit in the fostering of terrorism and Wahhabism in Sri Lanka. They are brutal murderers by proxy. We know their names. I cannot bring myself to type those names. They don’t deserve their names spoken. They are worse than the terrorists.  

However heart breaking, the dead are now dead. 

What about the living? 

The government is urging us to send our children to school. There is so much discussion amongst the citizens and on social media about this matter.

I am not sending my children to school.

I’m waiting for Harin Fernando’s children to come to school. 

I’m waiting for Duminda Dissanayake, the newly emerging ‘patriot’ to send his daughter to school.

Most of all, I’m waiting for President Sirisena’s grand-daughter studying in Visakha Vidyalaya Colombo, to come to school.

She has not.

Where are all these politico children and grandchildren?

When the President is satisfied that his granddaughter is safe to go to school, then my children are safe to go to school. In the past before the technology of land mine detectors, sheep were first sent to the battle fields suspected to be laden with land mines. When the sheep run on the landmines they would blast the sheep in to pieces. The infantry soldiers will walk that field only after those sheep called “cannon fodder” had cleared the land. 

My child will not be cannon fodder to make it safe for President’s granddaughter. My child will not be a guinea pig for security experimentation for Harin’s son, Harin’s daughter, Duminda’s daughter, and Ruwan Wijewardene’s children. These brutal politicians, all of them murderers by proxy, will not use my child to be used as a “soft blast target’ to test if the country is ready for their ‘precious’ children and grandchildren to go to school. 

Take note, citizens, Sirisena’s grand-daughter has not come to school.

      Grusha, thanks:
      The Catholic Church of sri Lanka and the victims families need to file cases against the Sri Lankan President, Prime Minister and his nephew for criminal negligence and dereliction of duty, just as a victim has filed case against the former IGP and the Defense secretary.

      The corrupt President and Prime Minister must be held accountable as much as the foriegn masterminds behind the Easter Sunday crime hiding at fortigied sea-front embassy compounds, just like the Saudi Embassy in Istabul was searched after the killing of Kashoggi, so too the US and Saudi embassy must be searched especially as sniffer dogs found bomb material on US diplomats at JAIC Hilton.

        In a civilized society one does not caste aspersions on people on a public domain, especially on their personal lives

        • 6
          0

          The author as you cite, has cast aspersions on few responsible people for their inaction, which could have prevented the tragedy losing 250+ lives. If that upset you, are you conversely trying to insult the society, saying it is indeed uncivilized. Get real with your so called p-correctness, see the context, tried to brings his message home, for a society, very quick to ‘move on’, in a strongest way deemed necessary. Don’t you think all who acted and unacted towards this mayhem must brought to justice if proven. To facilitate an unbiased investigation, should not they be excused from their positions at least until the probe is done. What is happening here, proxies having a good time. If this kind of urge is not in your mind, I might question are we living in a civilized society. Suggest to look for the definition of civilized. People are still mourning for the dead, deferring any parties would be sensible. Are you tacitly/sarcastically ridiculing the society?. Dont want to see any one live put on jeopady due to someone neglegence.

        Is Ruwan wijewardane too is a National List MP ? I think, It is OK to cast aspersions on politicians and their personal lives as they are responsible as Legislatures.

          Casting aspersions are never useful nor civilized. Criticism based on provable evidence is ok ( & useful) even if they drag personal lives into public discussion. That is a risk any public figure ( example politicians, sportsmen, and actors) should take.

        I don’t know about the author, his child, its schooling pattern…….. But one thing highly sure for me by reading news is country’s leader putting the Indian warning in his Amude and eloping to Tirupathi is the world’ most shameless act. This many thousand time more than Judas Appa. They are demolishing the Hindu temples in North and East, but running South India for Hindu God’s protection when they hear a danger? That is Sinhala Buddhists’ Comedy, hypocrisy religious ritual! Absolute shame! Author must have full justification to question it in his own way with media ethics. Athukorala, Ruwan, Old King, New King, Rail, Hezbollah, Hakeem, Rishard…… none these guys are in the 350 +500 statistics. In that case Author has right to keep his children in the same line; i.e. his children or he is not in the statistics next time.

        A man was in the hospital. The hospital staffs and other patients talked of something. His son goes to parliament and Church. He served his son. What is wrong for author to demand for the same information to save his son or daughter? Do you think instead of writing here he should apply for RTI commission to know when and where bombing is scheduled for next one month?

        Can Authokorala explain us why she is holding MMDA reform in the light of Pulasthini was converted religion and forced to undertake suicide mission under their male dominant rituals? How much of Dinar is rolling in blocking the MMDA reformation? How many foreign bank Accounts and on whose name? The answer is “Go to RTI?” Could you answer to Pulasthini’s mother crying? It is a mothers’ cry; it is not crocodile tear like some Muslim authors did here in pages and pages.

      If he did have children would he have sent them to school? We really don’t know. But we DO know that he is part of the same gang of thieves that have brought this country to its knees.

    Grusha, Thank You so so so much. You helped in bringing out all the anger, frustration, despair with in me, out there, in your critical but succinct words .” MS was marking time for next elections and Rajapaksas role in this self created human tragedy,” are real facts which I took up from day one and kept insisting until today. I feel better , now that, there are people like you, Sarath and few others are willing to take up this battle against these murders.Regardless of first or second degree, this is called murder, negligence and ignorance can never be an excuse.

      WHAT CAN WE DO, IF THE ELECTED PRESIDENT TURNS OUT TO BE A DONKEY ?
      .
      WHAT ARE THE OPTIONS BEFORE US RIGHT THESE DAYS ?
      .
      1) Impeachment is impossible since Rajapakshe loyalists would not support for it in the parliament
      2)People should come forward and go on strikes until the president resigns.
      3)If President would not listen to PEOPLE, onlyway out would be THREE FORCES to get him surrender?
      4)We dont mind President SIRISENA other world dictators end up with a SELF MORD -suicide… but we need to protect the nation not being attacked again.

    Compare this to the New Zealand PM , A young lady who is of his daughter,s age behaving in such matured way that the whole world takes note of it,. She is seen holding hands with public, paying condolence, supporting the victims, requesting the people to unite, banning the assault rifles within a week ( not burqa) and still got married recently , which people found out through social media.(not a fan fare but closed family ceremony). But I will go further. See how the public, media, rest of the leaders, religious heads and whole country as such reacted to the tragedy. And then you compare that to what is taking place right now in Lanka. Who is worse terrorist or the rest ???? A country with no empathy, remorse,civility and basic decency calling them self ??????????. Please send a copy of this article to a guy called Rajeewa who you see off and on writing here in CT claiming to be an expert. (in what?????)

    A Senior Politician from the Joint opposition made a very oppressive and threatening statement against the right for Sri lankan Citizens to learn any foreign language , this was obviously hit out at Sri Lanka Muslims to whom Arabic is obligatory to practice their religion and understand their holy book.
    Does this mean just muslims or does it include other foreign languages and other religous texts in other languages too?

    Is he sending a message to
    Muslims what his government hoping to take power in 2020 has in store ?

    It is politicians like him and their gangs who went on spreading hate and attacking which caused the birth of Terorist among young muslims ,it seems he has a strong plan to deny the fundamental religous right so that the entire Muslim community will revolt and a new war can be started.

    So come 2020 , it would be the long planned muslim Genocide???

      “…. Sri Lanka Muslims to whom Arabic is obligatory to practice their religion and understand their holy book….”

      then Hindus need to learn Sanskrit
      The Portuguese descendants need to learn Portuguese language
      The Dutch descendants need to learn Dutch language…

      where does it stop?

      THE MUSLIM GENOCIDE 2020….are you threatening a Genocide by Mulsims?

    Why isn’t the Lankan polity going en masse to kick all these devils out? Why aren’t the JVP ragging- torturers in the universities moving above their sadism, to sadist the true destructors of our ancient Island?

    Where is the movement towards a Buddhistic traditional economy, such that places like Myanmar, Vietnam and Buthan thrive by? Is there even a political party who can judge and weigh the global situation and install a policy for the sustenance of the Motherland?

    Instead, all our political devils are moving at fast pace in the midst of the usual Western-Chinese dominance of world resources, to gain such power and wealth over the struggling 19-million Lankan Masses.

    And they have dared to stoke the superpowers wrath with the use of Jihadi funds. They have dared to do this with the same money that has increased the Sharia business and commercial enterprise that has quadrupled the Sharia funds.

    Next America will come in magnanimously and reap the benefits of the Islamic money, and create their own neo-Diego Garcia on our ancient soil.

    Northern part will of course link with India with the land-bridge. Sharia, the balancing act – too much money entrapped in it for many years.

    But it is not too late to pray hard for political-party in tune with the soul of Lanka. JHU has to rise.

    We were manipulated into accepting corruption as a way of life. We have to choose from a Rogues Gallery of leaders without scruples. The better bad, if you will.
    We admired you Grusha Andrews for calling a spade a spade. In this article you are way beyond limits.
    You say {“….the souls of the victims of the Easter Sunday attacks …..sighed at the unspeakable injustice of the conduct of a negligent, callous President who thought it fit to roll before Thirupathi God forsaking the securing of his people…..”}.
    MS did not do, what you imply, deliberately. This will be debated till the cows come home and the dust settles.
    .
    Do you think Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) and patrons, financiers, protectors played a role?
    .
    There might be some ‘Nero fiddling while Rome is burning’ in Daham Sirisena’s wedding.
    Was it ostentatious when Rohitha Rajapaksa goes all the way up Kilimanjaro with a camera crew in tow, to propose to his friend?
    .
    Grusha Andrews is being very emotive in proclaiming {“My Child Will Go To School When President’s Granddaughter Goes To School”}
    The MS grandchild will be targeted by many, including those who stand to gain politically in the ensuing street violence.

    Sri Lanka is the only country that Addresses Tamils, sinhala, Muslims when Muslims are only a religion. Sri lanka is the only country that addresses that there are different ethnic groups, religions. Australia, UK all have all these.But they are only australians or British. British Divide Irish, Scottish or Immigrants and nothing else. Sri lankan politicians, every one is corrupt. Journalists talk issues because politicians and NGO pay. No one talks about the system change. Only some individuals slowly engage in it.

      ” Sri Lanka is the only country that Addresses Tamils, sinhala, Muslims when Muslims are only a religion. “

      Long Live the Father of the Nation Don Stephen, who conducted 1915 Muslim Sinhalese communal riots and turned around and brought MMDA

    If Sirisena bashing is the favorite past time of most of the writers and silent about Bond Ranil, then they must search their own soul and ask the question “To whom did you vote in the 2015 Jan Prez elections and August 2015 Parliamentary elections?”. I can say that I voted for the Sirisena Wickramasinghe combination assuming that they would deliver but definitely they have proved to be below par to the extent of not being able to guarantee the security of the people and I as a voter of theirs have a right to ask both of them to account. The public perception about the current levels of security and safety offered by the authorities is well below satisfaction and even in the height of the LTTE blasts no parent ever said that I would send my child to school only if the big man’s daughter, grand daughter or great grand daughter attended school. In a Sirisena bashing mentality what I am about to say would thoroughly unpalatable. Businesses are crumbling as a result of this situation. Same thing to a lesser extent happened when the country once went on negative growth under President CBK and the business community applied pressure on Opposition leader Ranil to do something to the extent of finding a new leader, fielding the Gamini Athukorale and Karu Jayasuriya combine. I am no the least surprised if something like this happens now. Bond Ranil! Look Sharp! Your boys labelled as butterflies by Maru Sira will not be there to help you then.

    WHEN THE PARLIAMENT WAS CONVENED AFTER THE CARNAGE. EVERY MP ADMITTED THAT THE 225 OF THEM SHOULD TAKE THE BLAME AND WITHOUT POINTING FINGERS AT EACH OTHER IRRESPECTIVE OF THE PARTIES THEY REPRESENT TO, ALL SHOULD GET TO GETHER AND FIND SWIFT AND EFFECTIVE SOLUTIONS TO BRING BACK THE COUNTRY TO NORMALACY SOONEST. BUT STRANGELY EVERY TIME THEY MET IN PARLIAMENT, NOTHING CONSTRUCTIVE WAS DISCUSSED, EXCEPT FOR THE OLD GAME OF MUD SLINGING AND BLAMING EACH OTHER. WE ARE REALLY SICK OF THIS BUNCH OF PARACITES. OH ALMIGHTY GOD PLEASE HELP ALL THE INNOCENT SRI LANKANS.

      Our Aanduwa proved that FBI has been bringing bombs, not ISIS, whom Aanduwa hired. It is almost certain when that FBI officer was coming Appe Aanduwa might have noticed at the Customs his bag flashing for bombs. They let him in without questioning to teach America a lesson. Then they took 2-3 days and trained a dog little bit sensitive to that kind of bomb. Took it in front of the room the FBI guy was staying. It is unlikely under normal circumstances a dog finding a bomb in bag though the hotel door. So the FBI officer sarcastically commented that the dog was doing well. That is how, after letting ISIS to bomb Tamils Churches, Aanduwa showed to FBI how to detect the bombs. These clowns claims they defeated alone LTTE.
      This is organized by Appe Aanduwa as a countermeasure to Resolution 40/1, UNHRC. So there will not be any serious action.
      1) They are not banning NTJ- Because NTJ was hired by them. Not the fault of NTJ. Probably Ranil split the NTJ like he did it to LTTE. That is why the bombing was not effective.
      2) Burqa or any other excess symbolism is not controlled. All are only bluffing talks.
      3) Aanduwa is worried about attackers’ safety, not the Victims’. It is has banned TVs relaying the weapons’ photos and Videos.
      4) Ranil said Rishard cannot be removed from the party because there is inquiry going on.
      5) But, extremist like Hezbollah, Rishard are not inquired, though media releasing abundant of evidences.
      6) Hezbollah openly said that he is not worried about inquiries as New will be with him.

    Leaders are born to lead. Whenever a Leader is made in ad-hoc style in hurry to replace the one in power, put the the country in disastrous situation. Such leaders lack in future vision and not in presence during a crisis even after receiving few warnings from dependable source that couldn’t have been ignored. So enough is enough, go home asap.

    There seems to be a sinister connection and understanding between the President and the Governor of the Eastern provinces? This Governor was appointed against the advice of many and now he is involved in all kinds of political and financial misdeeds and still confident that the President will never sack him !!

    If checking mosques in Kattankudy requires prior informing them and a powerful minister in Kandy who is not even a muslim prevents checking Akurana, what more can be said about the security for school children? Ranil of course does not understand this situation because he has no children and the president who gives orders to the security forces should be held accountable. It is a shame on this duo for putting the security of the country to the rock bottom with these disgraceful actions.

    Thank you Grusha Andrews for a highlighting the emotional and many other aspects of the current situation.
    1) Yes, the politicians are 100 percent responsible for the catastrophe. They are guilty of Murder by negligence and willful ignorance.
    2) All of our fat politicians were allowing any illegal and dangerous things to happen, just for the sake of muslim votes and to please Muslim MP s. (for their political support)
    3) You cannot expect the ‘peaceful muslims’ to monitor terrorist activities. Even if they had complained to authorities, it would not have gone further.
    4) It is impossible to reform the present gang of criminal minded, bribe taking, super corrupt set of current politicians.
    5) We need a fresh outlook and a drastic change in leadership.
    6) We have to do something fast. Lets try Nagahananda. I support him.
