    The draft constitution continues to seek protection for the politicians, criminals, crooks, war criminals, rapists, drug smugglers, ………………………. All they have to do is as they did since 1972 to hide deep inside Buddha Sasana.

    {Chapter II / Article 9:
    The following formulations may be considered:
    ▪ Sri Lanka shall give to Buddhism the foremost place and
    accordingly it shall be the duty of the State to protect and foster the
    Buddha Sasana, while assuring to all religions the rights granted
    by Article 10 and 14(1)(e).
    OR
    ▪ Sri Lanka shall give to Buddhism the foremost place and
    accordingly it shall be the duty of the State to protect and foster the
    Buddha Sasana, while treating all religions and beliefs with honour
    and dignity, and without discrimination, and guaranteeing to all
    persons the fundamental rights guaranteed by the Constitution.}

    It is for the people to protect what they value most.

    “Heroin container: Ministry Secretary resigns”. The Coordinating Secretary to the Minister of Buddha Sasana and Religious Affairs, who had allegedly intervened to release a heroin container from the Customs, had tendered his resignation to Prime Minister and the Minister of Buddha Sasana and Religious Affairs D.M. Jayaratne from December 9 – Daily Mirror 2013-12-11.

    He resigned, that was the end of the story, however no one was arrested and punished.

    Buddha Sasana is a good cover for the Sinhala/Buddhist fascists to indoctrinate, propagate, mislead, ……………………. the people with their fascist ideology which Anagarika Homeless Dharmapala started much earlier.

    What is the purpose of state providing “Buddhism the foremost place and
    accordingly it shall be the duty of the State to protect and foster the
    Buddha Sasana”?

        The stupid Tamils have amply demonstrated their ability to live peacefully among themselves and with others in the last 70 odd years.

        What is going on in Northern Provincial Council. The stupid Tamils cannot run a tiny council with their elected council leave alone Thamil Eelam.

            Dear Native V,

            However much the decreasing number of secular political leaders try to save what is left of an undivided island, I am afraid nothing will work in the future. Power has gone to the heads of the Mahanayakas and to the hand of the extremist Sinhala Buddhist inclined armed forces. We are now like Pakistan. In spite of the learned, legally sound and just counsel of the bold Supreme Court, the otherwise ill-lit Mahanayakas tell the SC to go to unowhere.

            Ageing Ranil Uncle and Company are trying to buy for time. The Rajapakse wolves and the Sinhala extremists of the BBS flavour impatiently wait in the sidelines to pick up the rotting carcass, even if they get half a chance. Hindia, to use your tongue,
            is getting impatient the Chinese aided by the Pakis and local
            Muslims will gobble up the soft underbelly of the deep South of dear Mother India. Syria and Iraq-in-waiting may be in the cards for the Resplendent Isle until the day India and China decide to fight it out.

            If that is to happen, Eelam will be given in a platter in a war torn island. The Tamil-speaking of ancient Eelanadu will have their day. Good always prevails over evil.

              Backlash

              I agree that we must be concerned about some of the serious points that you have mentioned above.

              However, I am worried about Hindian’s zealous attempt to culturally colonise this island with their perverted Hinduttva fascism.

              I do not believe Hindia and China would engage in full blown war. Both countries know the extent of the destruction if they were to fight a nuclear war. The 70 year development would be wiped off within seconds.

              China’s encirclement (string of pearls) strategy may not work however it sells expensive arms, hence it was promoted by the arms manufacturers through their local agents (or analysts).

              China may use Salami tactics, piece by piece. It has the wealth to buy local politicians, bureaucrats and real estates through strategic long term investments . And the politicians and bureaucrats are ever ready to make deals and sell themselves to the highest bidder.

              Ultimately the so called Sinhala/Buddhist fascists will be hung out to dry in their Amudes. The question is when?

      Because it was the tradition of our kings to protect the Buddhism and gives it the foremost place. Modern Parliament is justly continue the age old tradition? What problem you have with that? Moreover, Muslims are supported by the Saudi Petrol Dollers, Tamils are supported by the mighty India and Christians are supported by the Rome or the US catholic belt. Who is going to support the Buddha Sasana except for the Sri Lankan government. If all the other religions will get no support from above mentioned parties, Sri Lanka government should not protect the Buddha Sasana.

        “Because it was the tradition of our kings to protect the Buddhism and gives it the foremost place.”

        UCP Perera writes
        …………….
        “Barbaric forms of torture were adopted in the country with full awareness and approval of the monarchy. Capital punishment was in practice since the Anuradhapura period (3rd century BC-10th century AD)
        …..
        The execution was a recognized part of the system even in the days of King Pandukabhaya (377-307 BC). Whipping, beating, branding, mutilation and cutting off hair were other recognized forms of punishments.5In ancient Sri Lanka, 32 types of torture were described. Though inflicted by the King’s men,C and “lawful”, they were inhuman, cruel and degrading.

        “I always thought your are Anti Buddhist………… But I never thought you are such a Buddhist hater”

        There is a huge difference between Buddhism as the awakened one taught and the Sinhala/Buddhism (an fascist ideology) of which you and your noisy bigots have been promoting and selling it to the innocent stupid Sinhala people for the last hundred or so years since the advent of Hitler worshiping Anagarika Homeless Dharmapala.

        Most of my elders respect and admire Buddha and his teaching. Please stop telling me political Bhuddhism is the substitute for the teaching of the awakened one. I have heard this from Assgirias and certain Malawattus.

Then it had reasons to merge the Eastern Bengal with Western Punjab and Sindh provinces and created the Pakistan. With the same had they came to Ceylon and merged Tamil Eelam with Lankawe.

    I don’t mind about giving foremost or whatever most place to Buddhism but it should be stated that those who violate the principles of Buddhism should not be allowed to become President or Prime minister or Chief Minister. Constitution should specify that the following should be excluded becoming Ministers.
    1. Anyone who has a wealth over Rs. 100,000
    2. Any one who directly or indirectly involved with Corruption (eg. Basil Rajapakse).
    3. Any one who misused official power to benefit to him or his family (eg. Mahinda Rajapakse).
    4. Any one who directly or indirectly involved with abduction, murder, torture (eg.Gotapaya Rajapakse, Namal Rajapakse
    5. Any one using their power to protect these crminal actions (Ranil, Mithiri).
    6. Any one involved with hate speeches and violent against other religions (eg. BBS ).

    The most damning of it all, for the country majority is of course the merger of the North and East. Yet, we can hope, and look upon it with an open mind and heart. For if at least the East is able to possesses (or repossesses) its ancient and long standing Sinhala heritage, the merger can only then enhance the viability of the Sinhalese nation with complementary Tamils. Good wishes can take wings and fly, it is hoped.

            Jaffna brains work best when they are under somebody.
            For example under the British, or under DS Senanayake, or under Dudly. S when the whole Galoya board was under Dudley.
            C. Loganathan’s brain worked well under JRJ when JRJ was finance minister.
            The Tamils could have worked under Lalith Athulathmudeli or Rajapaksa. They can’t work under Ranil because Ranil’s trans’grand qualities affect him; he works under Paskaralingam.
            But when Tamils take over, they kill each other if they are of the same caste, and shit on the lower castes. They need a higher caste on top of them. A white man or a Sinhala Radala will be fine for them.
            They need masters to tell them how to behave and what to think. Then their brains work.
            The Tamils would be also very good as deputies under Muslims. This was proven in the courts of the Moughals. Even in Colombo, most diplomats prefer Tamil servants because their brains are tuned to servility.
            I think if you analayze Native Vedda’s writings, you see that he agrees with all this because he seems to know the tamils well. He will make a good servant to some diplomat, especially if he comes from our culture which is that of Omar Khayam.

      “Although his loyal follower Native Vedda is pissed off because Dr Ranil has been unable to dislodge Buddhism”

      Any reasonable secular minded person should be ‘p****d off’ if crooks, fraudsters, murderers, rapists, nutters, liars, ………………. are allowed to use religious constitutional provisions to cheat, murder, loot, kill, …………………….rape, …… innocent people and claim impunity under Chapter II.

      Why don’t you rather appoint Assgiria the executive life president of this island?

      In the years to come Mohan Bhagwat would stake his claim to the Sri Lankan throne.
      By the way Mohan Madhukar Bhagwat is the 67 year old leader of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).

      Namal, Malaka ….. and all other political brats may want to have Upanayana and thereafter wear the sacred thread (yajnopavita- poonool) across their chest which would give them extraordinary rights. Maybe they will be ordained as the local kshatriyas princes under cakkavattin Mohan Madhukar Bhagwat.

      Hands off, leave the religion to people who believe in them.
      Why don’t you p**s off so that the people could live peacefully minding their own faith without the crooks and the Assgiria poosari being the middle men making a mess of their life.

    The SLFP which vehemently opposed the executive presidency since the day Late J.R. Jayawardena introduced it in 1978, has in its latest proposals stated to the dismay and disappointment of all that the executive presidency shall be continued. The proposal of the SLFP in connection with the devolution of powers too is fluid and vague it is learnt.

    I am totally and absolutely against a new Constitution or bringing Amendments to the existing Constitution. Therefore, I completely deny this lame Interim Report made for brain-dead. —

    This is my opinion as someone from the public, in simple language. I’ve few points. —

    1. The word “Unitary” or “Ekeeya Rajyaya” has no value, power or authority AT ALL as the Report recognizes the “Province as the primary unit of devolution”. As per 4.1, the “Concurrent List will be abolished” (in order the division of power to be clear and unambiguous.) and I don’t think the government will agree to the recommendations by the Public Representative Committee for the simple reason that we already have an existing system with devolved powers. What government seeks is going beyond the existing structure to appease the minority. Based on 4.1, let’s see what will happen in North/EAST. The Provincial Government will receive ABSOLUTE (a) political, (b) administrative and (c) financial powers. —

    Under political powers; Provincial Government will have the right to formulate its policies. They can decide converting the Provincial Council a Provincial Parliament and conduct elections to select Members of Provincial Parliament (MPP). Then the Provincial Parliament can formulate their own Provincial Constitution and formulate their own policies on trade, administration, justice, fiscal, education, healthcare, land, security, whatnot. The dummy Central Government will not have any powers to nullify the Acts passed by Provincial Parliaments.

    b. Under Administrative powers; Provincial Government will have the right to distribute power among local authorities and municipalities by establishing Mini Territorial Governments and Municipal Governments within the Province. First and foremost, they will demarcate their territorial land, territorial sea and territorial airspace. They can have their own Provincial Courts, Provincial Police Force, Provincial Army, Provincial Navy, Provincial Air Force, Provincial Schools, Provincial Hospitals.

    Contd… 2)

    Continuation……

    plus — Provincial Public Administration System, Provincial Legal System, Provincial Transport System, Provincial Motor Traffic System, Provincial Tax System, Provincial Identity Card System, Provincial Immigration System, etc, etc. The most dangerous issue will be the power exercised by Provincial/mini Territorial Governments to enter into agreements with adjacent Provinces to combine territorial borders. Who can stop? Nobody.

    c. Under Financial powers, Provincial government, in order to meet budgetary needs, will have the power to generate their income in anyway they desire based on their own inland revenue laws, fiscal laws, trade laws, monetary laws. They can engage in international trade, inter-country reciprocal agreements on anything, absolutely anything, not to mention the power to have their own currency notes!!!!

    In brief, once political/administrative/financial powers are granted, Provincial Governments can overrule the (Central) Constitution as it is powerless. The words “Unitary” and even the “safeguards against secession” (2.2) will have no authority at all as once the above powers are granted, as Provincial Governments can act as Independent States governed by their own Provincial Constitutions (even beyond Federal) which will have no legal binding with the “Central Constitution” at all.

    Somewhere in this Report, it was mentioned “South is fearful of the word – Federal”. I think ‘fear’ is an underestimation for a nation who are going to lose 1/3 of their country.

    Stand for correction, Mr. Prime Minister.

    You’ve said somewhere “We should not miss the catch. This is the last chance. If we miss this catch, game will be over and we will lose the match.” Thank you for your outspokenness which I am sure have opened people’s eyes. The word “we” I guess referred to Tamils/Muslims as for Sinhalese, their motherland, Sinhalese nation, Buddhism and Constitution are too valuable to give away as “catches”!!!!!

          In absence of a cue to oust them, Sinhalese have to make do with working with the provincial councils to have balanced racial representation in the N&E. It’s one thing to be inclusive of all minorities. It’s another thing to split up our country at the demise of majority rights.

    We started life as an independent state by politically depowering the already depowered national minorities. Then there was the pogroms. Then JRJ wrote a mother-of-all constitutions. Colin wrote one and amendments followed.
    There was the mother-of-all pogroms in July 1983. Of course the shallow minds did not see a civil war coming! The same minds are writing a brand brand brand new constitution!
    A constitution under the same mind set will not succeed.

    The basic political democracy impulse of all is to save for the future Sri lanka, because the future is so unpredictable by LTTE gun -ruled policy of “Tamil Homeland” reappear in different form by proposed “New Constitutional” changes led by UNP Ranil Wick and CBK as core leaders.
    The Sri Lanka is a dangerous place to live under LTTE -Tamil turn back to power by back door an indeed the Tamil invasion that collaboration under UNP has promoted that by an ensure for New Tamil Regime in North-East.
    Well, place that Tamil political class of TNA has coordinated between Tamil Diaspora and UNP regime currently in power at center of Colombo?
    The very invitation of Global Tamil Forum members of delegation are timely presently in Colombo that the club of politically corrupted UNP click on deliberation of New Proposed constitutional change will going to take place in near future.
    The Global Tamil Forum leaders has been an invitation extended by MS, CBK and Rani Wicks of regime which that aim of so far that confidence building by order of foreign powers led by USA &UK Embassy’s in Colombo power by directive of State of USA. .
    Therefor how do we deal with anti-democracy forces( TNA-separatist & JVP-Terrorist) that risks and uncertainties of future democracy?
    This is a policy blunder of by current regime of MS led by UNP which MR alliance had been defeated of LTTE Terrorism since 2009 May 18th.
    In case of overthrown of MR alliance by political maneuvering of 2015 January that Presidential Election MS-President has unleashed an orgy of looting sovergerity and democracy — an Island of Sri lanka.
    The proposed new constitution is that cost of democracy of power devolution is UNDOUBTALY political catastrophe .
    In effects of that all round disaster is undermined of very foundation of democracy —-created a huge open-ended liability for the majority people of Sri Lankan

    Is the justice that Tamils should have got is being denied by Tamils (Yahapalanaya Justifiers)?
    Before we go further down in TNA’s somersault, let’s thank Jasmin Sooka for having put Sumanthiran’s Dhoti back on his waist and having had his shame protected. She had brought a new lease for the TNA’s secret solution. By the dynamite the suicide Black Tigress planted to Jagath Jayasuriya in Brasilia she jacked him back to Colombo; that action has created small rustling in Jayewardenepura and which has brought out the long hiding secret solution of Sampanthar and Sumanthiran to the public junction. Secret Solution was invented to give a smoke coating to UNHRC’s resolutions’ 30/1 and hide it and deny justice to the suffering Tamils. From the time war ended, TNA is for secret solutions with Chitanta Government & then Yahapalanaya Government. Last September (2016) somewhere in Kilinochi Sumanthiran gave a speech of ever protracted secret solution implemented before the end of the year. Appe Aanduwa had promised to UNHRC HC that it will have implemented the secret solution by March 2017 so the resolution has to be voided at its dead line. In reality Yahapalanaya was successful of pushing Secret solution and ICC investigation to back burner in March 2017 with the help West. But last few months TNA had washed off their hands from secret solution. Now they two are hero of themselves back again.
    There is urgent need for Yahapalanaya to defeat Jasmin Sooka, until the land sales contracts finalized with China to Chinese Veto, which is needed to hedge against the envoy Ben Emmerson’s call to refer to UN SC. But the Suicide Black Tigress planting the bomb in Brazil has created panic in Colombo; to cure it with a dose of Tranquillizer, Yahapalanaya resuscitated the secret solution. That is how the Neo Napoleon Sumanthiran has got back his Dhoti on his waist.

    We all know the tranquilizer is said as a draft, not a bill. But the question now is that really a draft? Isn’t a daft has to have some real description of some specific matters on which two groups can debate?
    This daft is saying that the devolution power can be done to Tamils. Provinces merger can be determined. Authorities of Local and Provincial governments can be determined. While the entire matters are left blanks for future determination, but only two majority protection closes are determined definitely, i.e country will be 1.Sinhala Buddhist 2. Lankawe Rajyaya with indivisible sovereignty.
    Let’s look at the second one first. Ceylon was never in history one country. Ceylon was three kingdoms, ruled by three Tamil Kings when they were captured by Europeans. Even when the time Mahavamsa showing the Hindu-Buddhist fight took place, there were two Kingdoms mentioned. Foolish TNA leaders have to know what was established in Vattukkotai Convention as Tamils history and the right of their sovereignty. Further, irrelevant of what it was that time, what is it now, for the peaceful existence of Tamils and Sinhalese in this land, Ceylon is two Independent states. UN conferred Tamils sovereignty cannot be sold by Sumanthiran & Sampanthar to Yahapalanaya. Tamils’ self-determination has to be clearly expressed everywhere in the draft.
    What the Sinhala word “aekiya rajyaya “is saying? Is this TNA signing a new resolution with Sinhala Government again for a “Foreign and Commonwealth” under name of Secret Solution? In the UNHRC resolution 30/1, the word “Foreign’ simply means that it is something has nothing to do with the one’s own country. But, for Yahapalanaya, “Foreign” means Sinhalese living in a land other than Lankawe. Is This Sinhala terminology, suggested because it guarantees that Tamils will never, ever be free out of the Lankawe Rajyaya.

    It is said the equivalent of aekiya rajyaya is not available in English, so a Sinhala Terminology has been force fed into Tamils mouth. The example sighted here in United Kingdom. Scotland accepts the British queen as their Monarchy but can leave when its people wants. If they go away from United Kingdom, they may still treat her as their monarchy, like Canada. Is there ever in history in Lankawe Tamils accepting the over ruling a Sinhala Kings, though other way was! Then why Tamils needs to go for the first time under a Sinhala Rajyaya? Why there isn’t any name indicating Tamils sharing the democratic ruling is possible here?
    Rajya is a Kingdom but not a country in Sanskrit, Pali or Tamil. As Sinhalese is only a language of these three’s mix, there is no possibility of it takes another meaning. Here is a lock designed by majority over minority to hold it permanently as a slave by turning Ceylon into Dutugamunu Rajya .
    Even for his adverse enemies, denying Sampanthar’s punditry in English is not possible. He in the political so long and has worked with Tamil maters. Now he is a master himself. Let me ask question from Sampanthar- Can he list the English words on that area and put forward his argument why he could not arrive an English word for this Dutugamunu Rajya? How much has he read of Sinhala literature or done of law PhD in Sinhala Language to understand the deep meaning of aekiya rajyaya to accept a Sinhala Jargon instead of English? When Yahapalanaya comes with its “Foreign Judges” argument, how prepared Sampanthar to defend his understanding of that terminology?
    Is the use of English important in any way? Certainly! Every foreign mission in Colombo should at least have one diplomat understands of what Tamils are subscribing to as they are the only ones will be asked to bail out Tamils when this turn out to be another 1972 or 1978constitutions, not Sumanthiran or Sampanthar!

    Entire country wide, after teaching Pirapaharan a lesson for protest against Standardization, “Tamils have accepted for the first time the superiority of the Buddhism”, Ranil has in his speech two days ago. This is 2017’s Sampanthar version of 1956’s SWRD’s Sinhala only. Sampanthar did not ask for, in the minority regions, they to have the priority for their religion.
    In 1948 Sinhala government decided that this land is only for Sinhalese. SJV was there and he voiced against DS and insisted that this land is Tamils North- East area included too. In 1956 SWRD brought in Sinhala Only. SJV was there and organized country wide protest against Sinhala Only . 1972 Sirimavo brought in the republic constitution to remove Tamils rights. SJV resigned his seat and challenged. Unfortunately this is 2017 & there is only Sumanthiran and Sampanthar are there. They once more justifying Yahapalanaya when it is declaring the entire land is Buddhist country and there no place left Tamils’ Hinduism, Christianity and Muslim religions anywhere in the land.

    There is every protections assured the majority Buddhist there is not protection for Minorities. The central government, under Lankawe Rajyaya, is reserving unlimited power to legislate against all of the Minorities ancestral properties, i.e. their Language, their religion, their land….

    Instead of this Lankawe Rajyava constitution, why didn’t Sampanthar ask for bring back the Soulbury unitary constitution without the oversight of Privy Council, which will be good for Tamils and Sinhalese? Those days Sinhalese were more humanistic animals on this land; less corruption; less rapes by army; less looting by the political leaders. It is 1978 constitution and the election system led to deteriorating political behaviors. Further Sinhalese will be able to have their Sinhala only verdicts wherever the laws permitted. Tamils will be able to use once more the minority protection of the 29A.

    This is intended as a solution to the ever growing hate between the two communities, by devolving power to Tamils. Let’s reiterate it, the only reason Tamil participated in the Yahapalanaya Gilmarts is hoping the power be devolved with them.
    This draft Constitution is nowhere willing to share power with Tamils. It is, in all term possible, consolidating the power to Sinhala/Buddhist central government. Don’t be in illusion by a general term talking about sharing power with Provinces. Be clear with terms used, here, is no force fed Sinhala terminology, only in plain English. In all Sinhala Lankawe’s hate laws, it is overtly mentioned “Sinhala- and Tamil or Buddhism and Non Buddhism”. But Sampanthar’s secret Constitution is talking about devolves power to Provinces; Draft is not prepared come with the term “Devolve to Tamils”. But it is ensuring the Buddhism will be implemented in North-East, where until recently no Buddhists were living. Now, Sinhala is the only language being used by central government in North- East. There is no prevention mechanism is provided to stop this. Tamil is nowhere used in all other provinces, so when the power is devolved to the other provinces, the Tamils living in those provinces has no way but to become Sinhala Buddhist, or die or get killed. If murder or rape or other violence is present against the Tamils in other seven provinces, there is no way any single case can be won with Sinhala Only Jurors. The devolution is being said will take place between Provinces and Central government; it is not between Tamils and Sinhalese. Sampanthar has to reteach him politics at this point; if Tamils have to be to be treated as human being in other seven provinces, it is only possible if North- East getting explicit Federal devolution with self-determination.

    The North-East Provinces have no power to protect minorities (the majorities in their provinces), in the above circumstances, even if they get land and police power. North-East Provinces have no power to protect a Tamil woman if is she is raped or toured by the Sinhala army in her own land, in own house as he is a protected Buddhist patriot. The methods DS used to decolonize the minorities from their lands with election & vote manipulation is still available to central government even after the provinces get their power devolved in this form. While North-East can be continued to be colonized by the Central government interferences (like army camps, their developments and transfers of central government employees in and out), the minorities in the other provinces will be debilitated practically like vote less citizens or voiceless citizens, though may be shown mercy to keep on their voting rights in those provinces, with the blessing of central government. In Lankawe like hate filled mixed society, unless Soulbury’ s 29A is explicitly repeated in all three level of governments, Tamils will not be able to survive even in North & East. This is because, nowhere Tamils have any reasonable minority protection mentioned, but everywhere majority protection is ensured. (I am not asking for 29A with this constitution –it only for a debate. My stand is only Tamils be let alone. No more time delays with fake secret solutions. )

    Ranil said that all Tamil Parties have agreed to take Buddhism as the privileged religion to North- East. Let’s infuse a possible good intention of what he said about Tamil Parties accepting Buddhism:” He might have said it because he wanted get the maximum devolution possible to Tamils from Sinhalese.” Could that be so?

    If so, can somebody explain why Ranil is resisting educating the Sinhala mass of the need of granting back Tamils the rights that are taken by the past and his current government, instead of lying to Sinhalese? Does one can tell a known lie to public and can get consent from public? He is telling this lie only to win the coming election which is almost about to burst if he delays it any more. This Sinhala Racist has stopped signing Rome treaty because otherwise the Rapist Sinhala Army’s crimes of rapes and murder have to be investigated. Does he doing some good thing to Tamil by that action? He is not the one to take a punch from the other Sinhala Extremists and do a good for Tamils. So he is on the process of bringing in his “Buddhism Only” constitution to the Dutugamunu Rajawe and claims that credit with the one he is claiming of not signing for ICC. But for what extent Sampanthar and Ranil can be co-conspirator s to make the land as “Buddhism Only”? Does Ranil need lesson on history when SWRD failed on his promise of “Sinhala Only” then what happened to him from Sinhala Monks? Does Ranil think he will easily evade those Ayatollahs depending on when Sampanthar and Sumanthiran for his “Buddhism Only” promise to Sinhalese?
    Many of Tamils claims like their ancestral home land of North-East , the war crime committed by Sinhala Army, their sovereignty to go alone and the like are coming from international laws and norms. They cannot be evaded or invalidated by Lankawe’s laws. That is only dreams fed by local politicians to win elections. Let us put here this clearly to the Sinhala Buddhist though many of them may not show interest in reading in English or reading Comments”:

    “Even if Ranil is saying a truth that all Tamil parties are ready to take the “Buddhism Only” to North- East, which may not work well for you. Earlier Ranil said he saved the War Heroes by not signing ICC accord. Then he twisted the story and said he had saved the entire country from facing economic sanctions by unseating war heroes in 2015 election and he making friendship with IC. Latter he made a deal with West to bring the Secret Solution in exchange for the heroes be spared from investigations. Now he is selling that “promise of the secret solution to West” to you by telling a lie that Tamils and Muslim are prepared to “Buddhism Only”. He is only a chronic liar. Don’t believe him”.
    But the Sinhala mass need to understand a lot about the “IC”, “UN, and UNHRC and UNSC”,….The International communities have their own interest and so manipulating them is possible in everyone’s dictionary. But, beyond that, there are some ironies; some established hard truths also need to be looked at. Gaddafi, Saddam, Yukoslyvakiya waited up to the last minute to learn from NATO. Some others learned from UN. But Israel and Lankawe has had notable success in fooling and dodging IC. But for Lankawe, not signing the ICC or changing the regime name from Chitanta to Yahapalanaya or negotiating Secret solution in exchange for investigation with Foreign Lawyers and Judges has not provided full protection for the Rapist War Heroes. Jagath and others are starting to be on the run. Whether one subscribes to UN’s conventions or not is no longer a matter. They are applicable on all members according the individual circumstances. Tamils’ sovereignty, though not specifically declared so, but still it is internationally recognized. Time is for Sinhalese to understand that Sampanthar cannot sell it or Ranil cannot buy it.

    “Pure” Tamil language is unfortunately not rich enough to have a word for Unitary.
    Search the Madras Lexion or the Cologne old-Tamil dictionary, or a classical Tamil Shabdhaksham. You will draw a blank.

    So Smpanthan and his advisors are struggling.
    An earlier document (1978) used the word ஒற்றையாட்சி (ottruyaadchi),
    while we now have ஓருமித்த நாடு (orumitta naadu) in the 2017 proposals.
    Neither of them conveys the right meaning. Perhpas
    someone might imagine that Sampanthan does not want it to definitively
    say Unitary to have some ambiguity. But really it is the inadequacy of old Tamil , or “pure” Tamil that does not include Sanskrit forms, rather than deliberate deceit on the part of Sampanthan.

    A form similar to the Sinhala words aekeeya Rajya could well have been used in Tamil too with the ottru form and arasu put together, or a form like aekeeYa-raashta could work since the corresponding Sanskrit forms used in Sinhala are also valid in Tamil.

    But Sampanthan et al are looking for pure “old Tamil” words, and there are none!
    Old Tamil was a simple folksy language which had to become enriched by the influx of Sanskrit words. In fact there is no good Tamil word even for “federal” either.
    Of course, when IlankaiArasu kadchchi was translated as “Federal party” it was purely to hoodwink the Colombo Tamils who were not warm about the “Arasu” (or Tamil Kinfdom) slogan.
    In fact, Thiruchelvam had been very uncomfortable with the “Arasu” focus.
    It was also tactically needed to not to give out the game to the English speaking Sinhalese who prided themselves on being “international”.

      Sorry for not understanding Tamil but while carrying a Tamil name.

      Arasu and Rajyam are one base words in two languages. Tamil does not allow words without vowel prefixed for “R” ,”TA”,”NA” sounds. These words went from Tamil to Sanskrit. “A-Rasan” is Raja in Sanskrit. The same way “A-mma” is “Mathuru”. “A-ppa is Pithuru”

      “”Onru -one”, “Irandu-Two” “Moonru-Three”……….” all the cardinals are copied from Tamil into Sanskrit and European Language even before Proto-Dravidian Languages existed. Tamil is the very first language appeared on the earth with 10base original numbering system.

      That is why all the Western Languages has “Onru -one”. But only Sanskrit deviates on the taking Ekka as the one. “Ekka” in Tamil is empty, that is zero. So how Sankrit got confused when it was picking the Cardinals from Tamil is a matter for Pundits to explain.

      I don’t want to get into “ஓருமித்த நாடு (orumitta naadu)” because I am not ready accept Sampanthar Draft Constitution so I don’t want to try to understand if he is right or wrong in his Tamil Translation. He have his reason, but who cares? I am only worried about he titling the constitution with a proper English word, that is the only one we can use to continue on “Seeking the justice for the Genocide crimes”.

      You are a worthless paid Kaakka Coolie coming out with new-new words for which you show that you have no capacity to understand the meaning (” Old Tamil – Folk Tamil”.) You idiot Tamil had come out with its classical status masterpieces even before the Arabic was born. If you don’t like Tamil please don’t speak it.

        Surely I know the Tolkappian grammar rules.
        Unfortunately, your etymology e., g., for ONE and onru etc is not accepted by linguists of repute. It is pure folklore.

        English ONE, French UN (or UNE), German EIN and through Latin links with the Indo-European family of languages.
        If you want more details:
        Old English ān , of Germanic origin; related to Dutch “een” and German ein , from an Indo-European root shared by Latin ” unus’. The initial w sound developed before the 15th century and was occasionally represented in the spelling; it was not accepted into standard English until the late 17th century.

        Singhales uses Eka , directly as in Sanskrit, prakrit and Pali.

          “ONE and onru etc is not accepted by linguists of repute. It is pure folklore.” You seems to be to have large stock folklore. But can you share with me also, by attaching the link here , in which folklore you were reading that?

          Tamil, possibly, the one before last language (Kanada) so far accepted as a classical language. Iravatham accepted Tamil is the language used in the 5000 years old Indus Valley civilization. What was the thinking of the International community or of you the linguistic pundits, in between that time interval about Tamils ? Isn’t the entire Tamil was a folklore for you comedies all these time? You people are not ready to accept where Tamil should stand even after it has been classified and a classical language. You gives a damn about your opinion on that?

          Your half baked mentality looking at only “one”, but I had compared up to the “nine”( Onpathu; 8 Eddu- eight, or ashta ) that all cardinals’ sounds of all europeans languages are matching with Tamil. That includes the Sanskrit and Pali. The Sanskrits comedy is the only one differs on the “One” but on that if different from the entire world languages. Ekka is empty or an open space in Tamil. That is zero. Tamils is the oldest language using zero for its 10base number counting.

          Further Tamil is the language counting the 10 base numbers accurately, (beyond cardinals) but for my knowledge none of the European Languages are.

          I know where your poor Arabic Sinhala is getting the Eka from, but now can you explain where did Sanskrit picked up the Tamil zero as the first number as its cardinals? Is that not explained in the Tolkappiyam you learned?

    In the end of 1980s the North-East was under one administration. That was the arrangement of 13A until Wimal made it 13-. India appointed Varathar as the CM of NEPC. But Varathar e said that there was no authority in 13A and he left to India. Pillaiyan, after serving full term as the CM of East, said he did not have the power even him to appoint a peon for him. That was the story of the two province of One Year. After fighting for their rights for 70 years, now Tamils are returning back to that period. This is a secret solution without any status change from 13A. CM cannot even appoint the Tamil Chief Secretary. A war Hero will be given that job by the President. Provincial Public Service will be under Provincial Public Commission. That commission will be appointed by Provincial Constitutional Council. That in turn will be appointed by, Radhika’s CC, Provincial opposition leader and by Provincial Governor appointed by EP, but the elected PC members or or CM will have no voice in that. There may be some room left for the PC to legislate something unimportant. But the execution power will be held at central by appointing a governor it wants and a Chief Secretary, all Ministerial secretaries through the PPC. Is this changing anything from 13A? The TNA’s constitutional punditries may think so, but Tamils won’t.
    Yahapalanaya like to work on one locality at time to convert as Sinhala Locality. So it is reserving its right to handle matters through the Localities. Provincial government will be like “Karaiyan arrikinra vear” (the tree, its roots are eaten by termites). Locals’ boundaries will be under Central’s constant manipulation, as like always the time from DS. Election laws will be changed place to place, so as the way the Sinhala parties can win the minority area.

    Elections will be timed as per the Lankawe horoscope readers to make best for the ruling Sinhala party. And such how is the DS’s Galoya Project going to be implemented as a crash project to convert Tamil area into Sinhala areas. So, without the explicit mentioning of any protection to Tamil minority in the Secret Solutions, the provincial governments which depend on the ruling party’ mercy, will be turned to work only for the Sinhalese even in their Tamils’ ancestral lands.

    The Privy Council, hoping to secure the Trinco Harbor for British government, rescinded it from involving in Indian Pakistani citizenship acts, which violated 29A of the Soulbury Constitution. After seeing no hope in Trinco, halfheartedly, it returned the Kodeeswaran case to Lankawe Supreme Court to re-investigate. Appe Aanduwa put a halt on that until the 1972 constitution was written. That constitution threw away 29A, threw away Privy Council and embedded Sinhala Only into that so that nobody could talk about it thereafter. The 6A is violating the freedom of speech of Tamils. They have the right to tell what solution they like for them. IJC described it as a draconian act that time like that nowhere in the world a similar law existed. Now Yahapalanaya Aanduwa’s has embedded the 6A in the main body of the Secret Solution.

    Let me repeat here something once again. Tamils’ sovereignty and self-determination is a declaration under of UN’s basic human Rights. Neither Sampanthar nor Sumanthiran can sell it by a secret solution without Tamils knowing that. Just because Tamils ask for separation, in the Future, Tamils cannot be punished. Lankawe may or may not subscribe to these declarations explicitly, but they are still applicable to Lankawe, too by one way or other. There is no escape for that. Ask Jagath; he knows better!

    The 1972 constitution made official through constitution the opposed “Sinhala Only”. The secret solution is bringing the 6A to the main body, instead of it being a stray amendment. The interesting question is what being made official by the Community Councils? The Paramilitary? No point in us is waiting for what the pundits’ interpretation.

    This Secret Solution is to return back the plucked out rights of Tamils. A complicated Power devolution is talked in for that. Tamils looked for minimum Federal Status. It has been expressively denied. There are multiple individuals and organizational authorities like President, PM, Governor, Chief Secretary, Central Constitutional Council (aka Radhika Council) and the local governments, which are directly drawing power from Central are sitting over the Provincial Councils; but in the Secret Solution, there is nowhere said Tamil rights will be ensured. So there is no guarantee or protection in that, in the future, any Indian Pakistani act, Sinhala Only, Standardization, 6th amendment, PTA, CTA, Emergency regulation, Sinhala Jury Verdicts…..will not be used to suppress Tamils. Even in the constitution an anti- 29A section of “Buddhism Only” is loaded. But interestingly one more body has been prescribed to sit over the Provincial Councils specially to take care of minority rights, when the PCs violate their rights. Yahapalanaya has been putting three years of show all over world in every Capital city of the country which showed interest in Ceylon’s political stability, about this this secret solution. But, in it the minorities are not explicitly protected on Central, Provincial and Local basis. But there are new councils coming out there, those are ones going to do the supervising of governments from violating minority rights. These are not like Radhika councils, but Deva, Pillaiyan, Razick councils. In Addition to monitoring the North-East Council members, they may, if not much busy in Muslims area, watch the non-Muslim women who are not wearing Burqa, to drag them to mosques to beat them up!

    Mallaiyuran says:
    “Tamils’ sovereignty and self-determination is a declaration under of UN’s basic human Rights”.

    Look at the Blacks in the USA. They are still protesting against white police Brutality; the black sportsmen are refusing to stand for the US national anthem. Their civil was was in the 19th century.

    So, after so many centuries, nothing has happened.

    So “sovereignty and self-determination is a declaration under of UN’s basic human Rights”, is there just grand words, written for decoration. The US will use it to hit others and claim that they have violated it so that the US can damn a regime that it does not like. That is all.

    Don’t be fooled by grand words. If the Tamils, or the Blacks, or any body want something they have to fight for it.
    The Vietnamese did that and won. The Tamils tried to fight but of course as usal killd each other and slowly reduced even their next generation (their kids) who they used as cannon fodder or got them to eat cyanide. Prabhakaran killed more Tamils than the whole army put together.
    If there were 20% Tamils in Sri Lanka in 1970, today we have 8 or 9%. That is what the Tamils did to themselves. Tamils are best as servants or deputies (they did well working under the British, the Dutch etc.,). They can’t be on top. Given self determination, they will begin a killing spree among the top. There is daggers drawn even between Sampanthan and Wiggie. Give then real ppower and they will get their “boys” to kill each other. Go back to Tamil history and see the cut-thoratism.

    Even in Tamil Nadu, it is a big mess, with Jayalaitha almost going to jail and the remaining crooks exchanging power whlie the DIMK and other parties constantly split due to intrigue against each other inside the parties..

    Bodin,
    What is going in between CV and Sampanthar cannot become the best opportunity for Ranil to divide and rule Tamils. Tamils can destroy their life for another 70 years, as Tamils have equal rights with Sinhalese who destroyed entire lives in Ceylon for the past 70 years.

    Tamils’ sovereignty is an assured one and Sampanthar cannot sell it to Ranil for a cup of coffee in the style of GG and DS. Ranil fooled Sampanthar and Ex .American State Secretary Kerry and had made UNHRC to withdraw the OISL report where 42 criminals were accused of war crime. Sampanthar & Sumanthiran did not oppose, but endorsed, UNHRC withdrawing the OISL report in March 2015. They did keep telling in the Northern stages that OISL had finished the Investigation and that will be base for accusations in UNHRC. But the report was withdrawn and UNHRC agreed to internal investigation in exchange for of Secret Solution. Latter Secret Solution faced it natural death. Sampanthar and Sumanthiran pulled off their Dhotis on the stages and vanished. But Jasmin Sooka has resuscitated it, unintentionally or accidently! But for a serious solution, Tamil needs UN and UNHRC in the constitution making process, Not the Sampanthar + Sumanthiran Comedies.
    President, PM, Parliament, Radhika Council, Governor, Provincial Opposition Leader ( who can directly work with Radhika Council to appoint the PPS members but CV cannot) Local Councils, Provincial Public service commission, Deva – Razick – Pillaiyan….….Community Councils, Provincial Chief Secretary, Provincial Ministries’ secretaries, all are over the Provinces’ CM. We don’t know what will in the Upper House. Certainly Central Upper house and Provincial Upper house will be up and above the PCs. If the North-East Province passes any bill dodging these yakkas surrounding it, then the Sinhala Jury Only Verdict Constitutional Court will finish it off. This is “devolution” in Sinhala dictionary?

    Let us welcome the Most Expected Surprise in the Secret Solution. This is why Yahapalanaya refused to release any Rapist army occupied land! It is building with the Secret Solution the world largest Military Base never seen even in American, Chinese, Russian Indian….. Militaries with size, in the name of National List – State Land Tamil Kings were ruling all three Kingdoms when they were captured by Europeans. But, Britain returned the Lands to SinhaLE, the Wildlife Sanctuary. 13A and Indian _Sri Lanka Accord accepted that North-East is Tamils lands. Genocide Rapist Army occupied it in 2009. Even after UNHRC and Western pressure, the army is refusing to leave the lands expecting the Secret Solution to set in. Yahapalanaya has been giving out false statistics to UNHRC and West of the released Lands, but none of any livable piece, only minor acres of forested areas. With the PTA, 6A, Emergency regulation, wiping out the terrorist and other sort of stories only 150,000 army is able to occupy Northern Land and mainly for Camps and cultivation, Tourism Industry and Buddhist Temples. After having the Secret Solution implemented, as it has override of any other human needs in favor of defense need, and having publicly declared that all lands are Lankawe’s lands and anywhere Lanakwe wants it can grab without answering to anybody, Lankawe will be putting in the 250,000 army to occupy and colonize the North with the constitutional approval. When the Tamils were dying in the sun and rain in the name of protest, EU Diplomats asked them if they think Yahapalanaya will ignore army and do anything for them. There is no formula known to anyone how to contest the Rapist army occupying lands wherever it wants, only in the North-East. Neither Sampanthar had asked for one formula.

      Thanga,

      It’s all our privilege to see you defending the Secret Solution with no capacity to think or see foresighted-ly, but you can be bought and sold in Pettah Malu Market. Sampanthar may need a cup of coffee, but probably, you drink coffee for because of of your health consciousness? Is that right?
