Necromantic Politics

By Tisaranee Gunasekara

“This accursed, shortsighted statecraft!” – Heinrich von Kleist (Prinz Friedrich)

The state-owned ITN devotes one segment of its main Sinhala news telecast to remembering the Tiger. Evening after evening, the viewers are reminded of some long ago LTTE-deed, in lurid detail.

MahindaThere are political forces, in the North and the South, who want ordinary Lankans live forever in the shadow of the Tiger. Sinhala and Tamil extremists need to keep the memories of the war vividly alive, because that is their only escape from the looming wilderness of irrelevance and obsolescence. This desire to constantly remind ordinary Lankans about the foul deeds of the enemy (and their own ‘heroism’) is something the Rajapaksas (and Sinhala-Buddhist supremacists) have in common with the pro-Tiger elements in the North and abroad.

Sinhala and Tamil extremists do not want a sober and informed discussion about the reasons and consequences of the war. They just want to keep hatred and fear alive, to lengthen the walls and deepen the dykes which divide ordinary Lankans.

The Rajapaksas need Tamil politicians to sound like cardboard versions of the LTTE. Every time some leading Tamil, here or abroad, waves the Tiger flag, the Siblings are delighted, because they can use that essentially silly spectacle to frighten an increasingly restive Sinhala public into obedience. The Rajapaksas do not want the Tamil polity to occupy the moderate centre and to reach out to their Southern counterparts and to the world. They do not want the Tamils abandon the counterproductive roar of the Tiger and find a rational and pragmatic voice which becomes acceptable to the Southern opposition and the international community.

That was why the Rajapaksas were obviously thrilled with the pro-Tiger outpourings of TNA parliamentarian S Sridaran and equally obviously dismayed by TNA Leader R Sampanthan’s measured and reflective discourse.  TNA parliamentarian MA Sumanthiran publicly wondered why the “…government MPs allowed Sridharan to continue with a speech, which the government later termed as supporting extremism” while continuously obstructing “Sampanthan when he made a more moderate speech yesterday”[i]. Mr. Sridaran was allowed to speak because his speech was helpful to the Rajapaksas; Mr. Sampanthan was rudely interrupted, time and again, because what he said damaged the enemy image the Rajapaksas need to keep alive.

In his speech, Mr. Sampanthan debunked the Sinhala Supremacist myth which reduces all Lanka’s ills to the Tiger. He also commented on the LTTE’s own transition from a potential solution to a new problem: “At the earlier stages, the manifestation of the LTTE seemed inevitable and even justified. It was the several aberrations, primarily the adoption by the LTTE of an authoritarian approach and the disrespect for democracy and human rights the tarnished the image of justification and eventually resulted in several countries the world over, branding the LTTE as a terrorist organisation”[ii].

Instead of welcoming this sober and acute analysis, the regime and its extremist acolytes are focusing on Mr. Sridaran’s pro-Tiger peroration. Understandably; the Rajapaksas know that the best way to de-legitimise the demand for a political solution to the ethnic problem is to daub the TNA with red-and-yellow Tiger stripes.

The LTTE became a victim of its own terror. The Tigers were proscribed not because they were separatist or because they engaged in an armed struggle; neither of these are crimes according to the international law. The LTTE was banned because of its strategic use of terror against civilians and unarmed political opponents. If the Tigers did not employ suicide bombers, if they did not conscript children, if they did not murder political opponents they would not have been banned in the West/India.

The world continues to be a rather unwelcome place for the Tiger. Not even Tamil Nadu would permit any public commemoration of Mr. Pirapaharan’s Birthday[iii].

The Rajapaksas do not have a problem per se with India. Their problem with India is sourced Delhi’s inability to turn its back on Lankan Tamils. Therefore the Siblings would do what they can to create a rift between the TNA/Tamils and India. What better way to achieve this goal than through the use of the Tiger – the killer of Rajiv Gandhi? It is not accidental that in the same week he made his lightening visit to India, Gotabhaya Rajapaksa “alleged that the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) was making a deliberate attempt to sabotage the post-war reconciliation process. The Defence Secretary told The Island that the TNA’s tribute to the dead LTTE leader Velupillai on his birth anniversary was meant to provoke the government as well as the armed forces…. He alleged that the TNA continued to take orders from the LTTE rump even four years after the end of the conflict”[iv].

That is why the government wanted Mr. Sridaran’s words to resonate nationally and internationally. That is why the government wanted to silence Mr. Sampanthan. That is why the government is ignoring the fact that the TNA publicly disowned Mr. Sridaran’s views[v].

Last week Sri Lanka asked Australia to ban the LTTE. The regime reportedly wants to stop a planned fund raising campaign by the TNA in Australia by arguing that the TNA is a Tiger-rump[vi].

The Rajapaksas need to isolate the TNA and the Tamils and to de-legitimise the demand for a political solution – nationally and internationally. What better way to do so than by fixing the Tiger mask on peaceful and democratic Tamil nationalism?

National Self-Mutilation  

Since independence, two antithetical forces had impeded the creation of a Lankan nation. One was Sinhala supremacism which saw the island as the sole property of the Sinhala-Buddhists and regarded all minorities as ‘guests’ with no inalienable rights. The other was the LTTE, which was wedded to the notion of a separate state completely under its control and waged an incessant and total war against its various ‘enemies’ from the Lankan state to India, from non-Tiger Tamils to Muslim and Sinhala civilians. Effort after effort to settle the ethnic problem peacefully, via a power-sharing agreement, had been defeated by one or the other of these antipodal forces, curiously alike in their visceral opposition to any moderate solutions.

The Rajapaksas are Sinhala supremacists secondly and Rajapaksa-supremacists primarily. They do not want to share power even with fellow Sinhala-Buddhists of the true blue variety. There is an irresolvable contradiction between the Rajapaksa desire to concentrate all power in familial hands and the Tamil demand for a political solution. Just as the Siblings used the impeachment travesty to kill separation of powers and subjugate the judiciary, they will try to use the Tiger spectre to stymie power-devolution.

Vellupillai Pirapaharan, with his obdurate maximalism and violent intolerance, became a millstone round the collective necks of Lankan Tamils. The Rajapaksas do not want Tamils to cast that affliction aside. How can the Familial State survive, in the absence of spectral Tigers (plus shadow Jihadists and Christian expansionists)?

Maximalism is as visceral to the Rajapaksa project as it was to the Pirapaharan project. The Siblings need an enemy who is more objectionable than they are, to Sinhalese, Indians and the West. Those Tamils who are lured by necromantic politics should know that by waving the Tiger flag they are playing the Rajapaksas’ game.

      Tisaranee’s article goes well with what I blogged a few times, last couple of weeks, here is one; read,

      –“Stupid Tamil writers’ LTTE white wash & anti-sinhala arrogance make all sinhala people support MR govt. Keep on writing & make sinhala blood boil & make MR govt. rein in for another 30 years, even if they are corrupt. Well done Diaspora terrorists, you dig your own grave.”

        Think about TG.

        She is remembering Rajapakses and Sinhala – buddhists every day in every one of her articles written for English readers. It is like LTTE Rump Tamils promoting Mahinda Rajapakse.

        What does that say ?

        She earlier worked for R Pemadasa. So, her UNP attitude I can understand. Why she is blaming always only the Sinhala – buddhists and not the Sinhala people as a whole ?

        Is she fighting for Christian Supremacy in Sri Lanka ?

    What does Tissaranee mean by necromantic. The dictionary defines necromancy as

    “1.
    a method of divination through alleged communication with the dead; black art.
    2.
    magic in general, especially that practiced by a witch or sorcerer; sorcery; witchcraft; conjuration.”
    “The Tamils are lured by necromantic politics”.
    I fail to see the relevance.

      Only those who want to fix a Tiger mask on a peaceful democratic Tamil Lankan nationalism as fostered by the TNA, will fail to understand the real context of the loud message that TG is giving with reference to the word ‘necromantic’.

We have a platform now with the TNA winning the election and ic recognition; we need to strengthen it with establishing moral high ground. The LTTE and moral high ground do not go together!

    Since independence, two antithetical forces had impeded the creation of a Lankan nation. One was Sinhala supremacism which saw the island as the sole property of the Sinhala-Buddhists and regarded all minorities as ‘guests’ with no inalienable rights. The other was the LTTE,

    Wrong analysis isnt it really hmm? Thankfully I don’t have to argue with you. The colonial Brits captured this moment in history in black and white. I urge thou to read “Soulbury Commision report” the chapter 7 in particular.

    As thou postulate a concern over Sinhala “supremacism” existed to make Ceylon a property of “Sinhala-Buddhists” it should have been captured there for prosterity isnt it really? Bear in mind the accusations listed on chapter 7 of alleged discrimination was made by assorted Vellalar. If they did not mention it why are you?

    What does appear on this chapter is a list of things such as the “Anuradhapura Ordinance” whereby the British allocated funds to keep this part of island history alive for futture generations. The Vellalar found this “discrinatory” against Tamils. The commissioner found Vellalar baseless not just on this count but on all.

    It was the Brits who said the claims were baseless. Now these Vellalar have said and keep so many things over the years also proven to be baseless. They said for example Federal Party was formed in 1952 to combat “colonisation” efforts by DS. It turns out to be baseless because people were settled in Moneragala district and many who were settled were not Sinhala. The 1958 riots over “Sinlaha-only”, “Vodookoddai resulution” and more recent claims of “40,000 deaths” are all baseless and fabrications.

    The Sinhala intelligencia have over the years taken what the Vellalar says merely at face value without greater scrutiny. I suggest you go back are study all claims of alleged “grievences” becuase there are holes it each and every one of them.

      It is explicit that how the Sinhala Buddhist supremacy has been endeavouring when comparing the 1948 constitution with the present one! DS Senanaike assured both the minorities and the British that the minorities would come to no harm; we all know all about it now don’t we?

    Excellent Analogy T. Gunasekara,

    The Government is desperately trying to keep the separatist agenda alive as they know that is the only means of which they can hang on to power and plunder the resources as well. Just as the Rajapaksas diaspora elements who are yet to have their asylum claims pending need to have the picture painted of an oppressive SLG. Coupled with South India’s deep rooted ‘Tamil Elam’ ambitions we have a show which can carry on for time to come, unless of course SLG accept the wrong doings in the past against minorities and reconcile and move forward, announce to the WORLD that we are back as a nation.

    However this SLG has no such vision, if it did we would have seen it by now, all Sri Lankans could have been looking forward to a much more prosperous future. As per my opinion attempted anti minority rhetoric and actions has achieved what the regime wanted that is to create an atmosphere of fear and to discreetly inform the goons if need be the law can be taken in to their hands. These scripted dramas has deep rooted purpose. Just like all the other shows.

    The current SLG has indirectly warned not only the minorities but also the majority community decent will not be tolerated.

    As the only credible opposition I hope the TNA will not fall pray to MARA tactics of buyouts and political black mail, rather forge alliances with other communities and defeat the common enemy the curse of this nation the current “regime”

    Good analysis. The regime thrives on memories of VP and the LTTE. The war on terror serves to legitimise its tyrannical actions against ordinary tamils. MP Sridharan’s speech in parliment achieves nothing for the Tamils other than to detract attention from the tyranny of the regime.

    It is all fault of Rajapaksa and the Sinhala Buddhists majority., Mr Sambandan doesn’t do necromancy, although he calls upon Grease Yakkos to help him occasionally.

    Vellala CM praised Prabakaran as a Hero and pledged allegiance to his philosophy soon after inauguration,

    Senior TNA members Sira and Prema have been praising the Hero since Nanthikadal,

    Now Sira has gone even further to profess his allegiance to the LTTE and sang Hosannas to the Supremo, in our Parliament, which lost of its brilliant Members,Mr Kadir thanks to the handy work of the same supremo.

    And Ms T keeps battering our Sinhala Buddhists because they don’t forget the Supremo and allow Sambnadan to get his wish list ticked off by the President.

    Would Ms T be kind enough to publish this in Lankadeepa,together with a translation of Mr Cameron’s ultimatum to fix them in five months time if they don’t shape up?.

    Oh no. Somebody has taught T.G. a new word and she just wants to play with it, irrespective of whether that word has any relevance whatsoever to the point she is trying to make.

    Now coming to the point she is trying to make, well it’s very simple. T.G. is devoting this piece on white-washing the actions & words of TNA MP Sridharan. She is urging the Eelamists like Sridharan to not behave in this manner in public at least, because it strengthens the Rajapakse Govt. The Rajapakses happen to be her eternal and exclusive enemy. Yes, for T.G., the Rajapakse Govt. is more dangerous than the ‘tiger’ and the Eelam the tiger stands for.

    She has taken on the responsibility of becoming the chief apologist of the Eelam cause. But, she prefers if people like Sampanthan & Vigneshwaran do the talking rather than Sridharan because they represent the ‘moderate face’ of the TNA. Sridharan, on the contrary represents the ‘true face’ of the TNA. If the TNA was truly moderate, then they would not have discarded the very moderate Anandsangaree, they would not continue to be guided and receive funding from the Eelam diaspora including TGTE, and they would not guide another generation of innocent people from stepping onto the sacrificial alter by continuing to push for ‘the promised land’.

    As for MP Sridharan, well maybe he has aspirations of becoming the next ‘sun god’. But, no worries because the patriotic people of this country will give him an assurance that he will not be discriminated one bit. He will definitely be extended the same courtesy as his predecessor. :)

    “The Rajapaksas do not want the Tamil polity to occupy the moderate centre and to reach out to their Southern counterparts and to the world”

    What Rajapakse’s wants are not the issue here. It is the forces that satisfy the so called Rajapakse wants is the issue. Rajapakse hatred clouds TG’s vision. TG should be focussing on India and the West who provide sanctuary, and political patronage to LTTE rump, TNA (not only Sridaran even the Chief Minister who is Sambandan’s nominee glorified the ultimate terrorist).

    Such sustained campaigns in identifying Tamils with Tiger idealogy results in an equal response to remind the Tiger brutality that people might forget in peaceful times.

    So, yes, we should thank domestic terrorist sympathisers of TNA & TNPF variety and the overseas rump aided and abetted by the West & India for keeping the memory alive.

    “At the earlier stages, the manifestation of the LTTE seemed inevitable and even justified”

    Is that why TNA ultra democratically declared LTTE as the sole representatives of Tamils?

    Sambandan’s reflection on Tigers appears to be a lamentation of a Tiger about their leader’s ‘mistakes’.

    As TG also laments, VP would have been alive and kicking if not for those ‘mistakes’.

    As I mentioned previously the chronic Rajapakse hatred has clouded TG’s vision completely.

    It was a convergence of certain forces that created Rajapakse presidency and sustain it. It was a historical requirement which a nation facing an existential threat so desperately needed to fulfil. There are forces still provide that conducive environment for Rajapakse presidency to sustain.

    Rather than continuously attacking Rajapakse, TG would be well advised to focus on the forces that constantly provide that conducive environment (it is certainly not Sinhala supremacism either, since TG has equated Rajapakse to Sinhala supremacism).

    Historically, necromancy is practised by almost every leader in Sri Lanka. They derive Satanic commands from their fortune tellers, sort of superstitious ‘time’ to inaugurate an event. The essay highlights instilling the ‘fear factor’ in the minds of the sheeple to hold on to power. This “fear weapon” is invoked in numerous ways which makes people feel fearful and insecure so that the “controllers” can exert all manner of oppressive and invasive controls over the people. Surprisingly it works.

    TG is criticizing Rajapakses. Let us say Sri Lankan politicians are not true leaders with a future vision for the country. So, they are exploiting,rewinding and playing the same old record.

    But, on the other hand, what intelligent – TG is doing and has done ? She is no different from a dog who is barking at the moon. TG is always blaming at Rajapakses and Sinhala – buddhists. When did TG write a reasonable or a ground breaking article about Sri Lankan politics.

    TG is also writing to the english – reading Gallery and nothing else.

    TG is extremely biased towards Sinhala – buddhists. That can be explained only on the basis of TG being a christian. TG’s anti-Rajapakse stand may very well be because of hand outs that she is getting from LTTE rump.

    TNA guys should have a harsh bisexual activity with Goata in the parliament so he does screech his head off in pain, that will make their day for most of the patriotic lankans.

    I agree with TG. It’s time Tamils stop waving Tiger flag, continue work with Sinhala moderates.

    Whatever said and done, the LTTE is no more and no Sensible Tamil living in the island of Sri Lanka is speaking or even thinking of separation. All this rabble is about the remembrance of the dead, whoever it be. Why make such a big fuss about it? To the Scots Brave Heart is still a hero though he may still be considered a mere rebel by many and in modern parlance, as a terrorist by some. What is wrong if some want to remember VP as a hero?

      SM,

      The issue is there do not seem to be many sensible Tamils around to have a critical mass to counter the extremist anti SL separatist movement and sentiments.

      The second point is no one raises issues a person remembering VP as a hero. It becomes an issue when the Tamil political leadership publicly proclaim and venerate VP as a hero. It becomes a public endorsement of VP’s terrorist, mono ethnic, exclusivist idealogy

    “|” What is wrong if some want to remember VP as a hero?”|”

    Reality: `The mother of all stepfathers` –

    VP never bit the capsule nor shoot himself- the coward. Hitler was brave!!

    The ancient tiger `Siva`ji was born a warrior.

    I feel that many readers who comment tend to get distracted by various comments made, often irresponsibly, by mischievous people, and the gist of the article falls by the wayside.

    It would be better to attempt to make sense of what individual writers articulate, rather than descend to hitting out at people whose comments do not agree with their own perspectives and biases etc.

    This forum would be a lovely place to find informed discussion on contentious issues with a healthy debate rather than frivolous mud fights and shallow bickering…
