Present Provincial Council Cannot Be A Vehicle Of Change For The Betterment Of The Tamil

By C.V. Wigneswaran

Hon’ Chairman, Hon’ Ministers, Hon’ Members of the Provincial Council belonging to the ruling party as well as the opposition!

Before presenting the draft of the Annual Financial Statement and Appropriation statute for the year 2014, I have made a statement in Tamil. I think it is appropriate to translate the said statement to English too and deliver same.

It was the political agitation by the minorities that resulted in the establishment of the Provincial Council. More specifically it was for the benefit of the Tamil speaking people of the North and East that Sri Lanka and India formulated the Provincial Council system which resulted in the Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution.

But the then Government made the Provincial Council System applicable to the whole Island and thus stultified the whole concept of power sharing essential for the Tamil speaking Northern and Eastern Provinces. Thereby nothing was given specially for the Northern or Eastern Provinces when power sharing was urgently needed by them rather than the other Provinces. In fact the political need to devolve power for the North and East was effectively scuttled. The political needs, aspirations and the special interests of the people of the Northern and Eastern Provinces were thus overlooked.

The Provincial Council System, it must be noted has been identified by all as a means to devolve power to the periphery. But the Thirteenth Amendment in fact has strengthened the hands of the Executive President and widened his powers.

The Governor is the representative of the Executive President. No appointment is possible within the Province without the approval of the Governor. From the Secretary to the Minor Employees, it is the Governor who holds the whip hand. Even though the law says the appointment of the Chief Secretary shall be by the President with the concurrence of the Chief Minister, the present Chief Secretary was not appointed in conformity with the Law. She did not consider it necessary to resign when the new Administration came in. This applies to other Secretaries too.

In our Northern Provincial Council it is the former Jaffna Commander of the Armed Forces who has now taken on the mantle of the Governor. He naturally goes on unhindered as if the Army is administering the Northern Province. The officials of the Provincial Council therefore fear to cooperate with the Peoples’ Representatives. They shudder to think of the consequences of displeasing a former Northern Commander of the Army and the present Governor.

Added to this we have not been able to present a single Statute to the Council as the Administration lacks the required high level human resources and institutional arrangements. It is by effluxion of time that our present cadre of senior officers got to where they are now. May be political patronage in the case of some cannot be over ruled. But we are unable to expect a high level of efficiency and proficiency in certain quarters. There is no system by which we can induct high level human resources.

Twenty odd years of Military Rule has trained our officers to act parrot like and to do things as they are told to do only. But I do not criticize them. I feel aggrieved. There is a gap in the capacity for governance and development inside and outside the Administration.

At this stage someone might pose the question as to why we decided to contest the Provincial Council Election if the Thirteenth Amendment lacked teeth and was insufficient. There were two important reasons. Only if we stood for election could we bring out to the notice of the world the feelings and aspirations of the people of the Northern Province and show that the Government was portraying a false picture. In fact at the last Election the people were able to loudly proclaim their disapproval to the Government in power and the presence of the military in the Northern Province.

Secondly without power, without authority in our hands to proclaim insufficiencies in the Thirteenth Amendment at Colloquiums and Seminars made no impact on the Government nor the International Community. But we felt it was better to get ourselves established in authority, experience the short comings in reality and thereafter tell the world what was happening. That exactly is what we are doing now. Rather than to merely say that Thirteenth Amendment is insufficient we feel exposing its shortcomings while established in office would be beneficial for future changes.

The objective of the 2012 UN Resolution was to bring about a change for the better, in the life of the people of the North and East and bring justice to them. But whether the Resolution has had the desired effect on our Government is no doubt debatable.

The Northern Provincial Council Elections took place entirely due to the pressure brought about by India. You cannot continue to keep the Military in the North and expect reconciliation and regeneration. The Joint Declaration by the President and the UN Secretary General in May 2009 has not been honored to say the least. The Foreign dignitaries who came over here publicly commended an immediate change in the life of the people of the North and East. They have urged the urgent need to devolve sufficient powers to the North and East.

It should be understood by all clearly that the present Provincial Council cannot be a vehicle of change for the betterment of the Tamil speaking people of the North and East. It could be converted into a transitional Administration. For 65 years since Independence the problem of the Tamil speaking people of this country have not been solved. Consecutive Governments of which ever hue were only interested in foisting more and more hardships and calumny on our people.

Thereby turning to the International community appears to be the only alternative open to us. The International community within the past two months has given us assurances that they could help us. We therefore must do everything on our part to accept their largesse. In 2012 the UN promised technical assistance by the mandate holders.

Unless there is immense pressure from the International Community our Government will not grant any form of power sharing to the Tamil speaking people of the North and East. The International Community should ensure that aid given to us reaches us. The Government should not be an obstacle to our receiving such aid. We must receive directly the largesse extended to us. Sometimes projects under taken in the Provinces grind to a halt prematurely since aid money gets stagnated at Central Government level.

It is also essential that our officers must receive technical assistance to draft appropriate Statutes and development projects and plans. We have very little human resources in these directions. There seems to have been a deliberate attempt at subversion of innovation so far.

What I see today in this country is the deterioration of democratic institutions and the rule of Law throughout the country. We argue about federalism, self determination, power sharing and what not while in the Northern Province if not the whole country foundations are being laid for a dictatorship. The Family Rule gives us the opportunity to question whether steps are being taken to pass on administration from one to the other, from Democracy to Dictatorship. When statements are being made five years after the war that the Military will not be withdrawn from the Northern Province at any cost, we must understand the unsaid thoughts of those who utter so.

If we do not find solutions at the earliest for the problems of the Tamil Speaking people of the North and East the existing state of affairs would very definitely make a significant change in the demographic pattern of the North in favour of the majority community following what has taken place in the East. There are some pathetic Tamils who question “why not?” They must realise that it was after driving away violently the Tamil speaking people from the Southern seven Provinces between 1958 and 1983 that colonization of the Northern Province with the help of the Military is being undertaken now. Do not these brothers who ask such questions know that activities of successive Governments in this Country have bordered on genocide if not genocide or knowingly do they ask these questions for selfish reasons?

I would say well planned activities are in progress to completely detract the World from identifying the Northern and Eastern Provinces as traditionally and historically Tamil speaking. It is essential that an International strategy is innovated to quickly ascertain the views of the Tamil speaking people presently still occupying their traditional home lands. If the International Community shows laxity, lethargy and indifference the plight of the Tamil speaking people would become irreversible. Let our people as well as the International Community realize the dangers lurking around us in the Northern Province with the presence of the Military.

The finances we are to receive are negligible. Nevertheless it is our resolve that widows’ families, women headed families, disabled and others affected by the war should be ameliorated with foreign help.

We propose to assess the needs of the people of each District and take steps to improve the living standards of these persons. The larger projects too are in our itinerary. We hope the Government would not be a source of obstruction in this regard. If our people would be guaranteed good life and contentment let our Sinhalese brothers and sisters realise it would go a long way in helping the whole Country.

      Yah, these are the sort of noisesChelvanayakam, Ponnambalam and Amirthalingam made when they were producing the Tigers. This old man, after spending a rich, comfortable life in Colombo is now doing the same. The results of his inflammotory talk will be seen in 10 years. The Sri Lankan armed forces should keep all the camps in the north and east waiting for that.

        “these are the sort of noisesChelvanayakam, Ponnambalam and Amirthalingam made when they were producing the Tigers.”

        Could you clarify as to the nature of noises that you would prefer to hear from this old man.

        “The results of his inflammotory talk will be seen in 10 years.”
        What is inflammatory about it?

        “The Sri Lankan armed forces should keep all the camps in the north and east waiting for that”

        Until the state is bankrupt and disintegrate, I welcome that process. Sooner the better.

    Don’t despair honorable Wigneswaran, you have a forum to let the international community know how the Sri Lankan state treats Tamils: You have the ammunition when you visit Number 10 Downing Street. This is what Tamils have been saying for 66 years. Sri Lankan state is showing its blood stained hand. Now the world will believe. Remember in Mahabaratham Pandavars were refused even five houses by the opponents: This is exactly what is happening in Sri Lanka. Eventually justice will prevail for Tamils. Let’s see what happens in March 2014.

    The learned Chief Minister paints a dismal, albeit real, picture from the perception of the Tamils in the Northern Province. Very little has
    changed since the NPC Elections and the army continues to behave as if
    they are lording over a subject and occupied race.

    The UN and the world must not merely take note but move to provide suitable attention action to the CM’s plea “the Joint Declaration by the President and the UN Secretary General in May 2009 has not been honored – to say the least” Signing on the dotted lines for the Rajapakses is a meaningless exercise. Here they are accused of reneging on their own written guarantees. They only respond to pressure.

    “Unless there is immense pressure from the International Community our Government will not grant any form of power sharing to the Tamil speaking people of the North and East” is a poor account of governance and respect to the law and Consitutional government on the part of the Rajapakse regime. Why is it that the Rajapakses wait until the global community twist their arms to do what they (the regime) should otherwise be doing, as a matter of course.

    “The International Community should ensure that aid given to us reaches us. The Government should not be an obstacle to our receiving such” The Rajapakse Govt will claim lack of funds and come out with many excuses for their inability to provide resources to the NPC. In the background of what happened to much of the Tsunami aid sent to GoSL, that found private hands within the Rajapakse
    power structure, the request of the CM/NPC appears reasonable.

    By all accounts it looks like May 2009 is not the end of the tribulations of the Tamil Nation – most of whom did not look upon the LTTE as their saviours. It is more likely their shared miseries as a people are only beginning under an indifferent Sinhala supremacist
    Rajapakse regime. Their hopes and their future, as the CM tries to suggest, is now with the international community – a bad omen for Sri Lanka as an undivided country.

    The people in the North have expressed clearly their wishes and aspirations to the GoSL and to the International Community, that they need to be left alone to reconcile themselves, to manage their own finance, rehabilitation, infrastructure development, law and order, and land management through their own elected body, the TNA.

    Until a permanent political solution is reached, with coordination and engagement of the IC, the Tamil Diaspora and Tamil Nadu), all aids including from foreign governments, NGOs – local and international, Church groups, charity organisations, civil societies, individuals and investors should direct and channel all their resources through, for approval and coordinated by the NPC.

    This will help create and equip the said interim government in waiting, prove that the NPC will function with or without support from the GoSL, in a planned systematic, structured, and desired manner for the people and for the province.

    The Tamil problem belongs to all Tamils, we can do it.

    It is only an International intervention into Governance of this Common
    wealth Country that some democratic avenues can be assured, as the
    current trend is as in the past – a political hold of the Country with
    the Tamil issue kept wide open as the basic issue for Votes.

      I do not know how much the Indians, the Americans or the International Community will help the Tamils in Sri Lanka going by what happened in the recent past. Today what is publicized is how MR using the Forces defeated the LTTE and annihilated them. The truth is far from this. Ben Hurling type who believes so, is unable to explain why the LTTE buried all their heavy artillery during the War and abandoned their Fortress Kilinochchi and exposed themselves on a beach front with no cover and an armoury to fight. I believe all remember how the MR govt speculated that there were ships berthed off the East Coast and how these very countries were trying to stop the War and ferry VP out. It is established now that there have been Ships berthed outside the Eastern Coast to send the message to VP that he was to be provided sanctuary till the rest of the LTTE surrendered and a settlement to the war as promised, with devolution. The presence of ships has been only a ruse to lure VP out from Kilinochchi by the Indians and the Americans. After VP left Kilinochchi the whole lot of the LTTE were massacred numbering over forty thousand and the bodies have been taken by these same ships and dumped in the high seas to leave no traces of mass graves on land, otherwise. So how can the Tamils rely for Justice from such countries who helped a War Criminal MR to commit such a ghastly crime

        I have read your version several times and I also believe that the US and India helped MARA to annihilate those tamil civilians in the war end phases. But I am not sure that those ships helped transporting the dead to high seas as you described. Where did you get all these from. Actually, time will come to allow us all to get the truths. They the brutal family members will have to reveal the truth sooner than later.,,my wish for 2014 is be all these multi murderers be convicted by Hague. They deserve all punishments if they murdered those civilians to the manner reports revealed so far. Not the North korean leader s paternal uncle, but MARA AND Siblings should get the due punishments.

        Let me be straight. I am for establishing Tamil Eelam by hook or by crook. For that reason I like to believe what this gamini says and take MR for Hauge. But if 40,000 people were massacred during the last few days and their bodies were transported through Indian and the American ships to high seas to be dumped, I think its an absurd theory for it works out to be an imposible task to be done under cover. If the said job was done in ten days, 4000 bodies should have being retrived and taken to ships in high sees every day. To collect 4,000 battered bodies per day and carry them to small boats in shore is no small job. You need at least 2,000 two man teams to do the job. Then boats must sail to big ships. If each boat pack the bodies on top of the other (say 25 bodies) like in a sardine tin, 160 boat trips must be made to ships every day for ten days. If each boat makes two trips to far away mother ship per day one need eighty boats. If each boat has 4 people to do the loading and unloading, there need 320 people. With supervisers one need at least 5,000 on the whole job. If someone ask isn’t there a single witness among them, we have no answer. We must forget this absurd 40,000 killed and persue a better stretegy.

          Tamil Gamini,
          VP, the LTTE and the Tamil civilians numbering around a three hundred and ninety thousand vacated Kilinochchi in January 2009. The Forty thousand and the other Tamil civilians in hospitals were not killed in one day for them to be transported for a sea burial according to the logistics you have posted. They were killed during the period Jan 2009 to May 2009 so they had all the time in the world to dispose without trace, as mentioned. The dead bodies had been loaded using JCB backhoes of which photographic evidence is available and not using manpower as you have mentioned in your Logistics.

        You idiot ( your race is synonymous with intellectual inferiority so don’t call me an idiot you modaya).

        Only an igneramous fool like you will say there is no country called Eelam but for your information the Tamil territories of Ceylon is what we now loosely call Eelam. These territories were annexed to the rest of Ceylon by the British against our will in 1833 by treaty of Amiens. The Tamils never accepted this treaty and they wanted to secede . To this end they used the 1977 general election as a referendum following the Vaddukkoddai resolution in which the Tulf decided to fight for a separate state of Tamil Eelam and won that election overwhelmingly.

        To put it bluntly Ceylon is not one country it has two states Eelam and Srilanka. You Sinhala bastards cannot be trusted . You are worse than animals you proved your true sense of animal identity in the last days of the war in vanni in 2009 when you barbarians killed 70 thousand innocent Tamil civilians in the name of your fuc*king Sinhala Budhist Lanka. We want the international community in general and India in particular to make sure this kind of holocaust is never repeated in Eeam ever again. The only way to achive that is by removing all the Sinhala settlers from the north and east including the gotabayas thugs who are otherwise known as the Sinhala army. They are in our country Eelam killing, raping, stealing , pillaging and destroying our people’s lives Unhindered . There act of savagery is causing a total destruction of the Tamil race in Eelam leading to an ethnic genocide. We want to stop that with the help of the international community at any cost.

        We Tamils also need to if possible acquire tactical nuclear weapons using our financial power and if the Sinhala army fails to leave our Homeland we mustn’t hesitate to use the nuclear weapons as a last resort preferably starting at Hambatota to devastate these Sinhala barbarians once and for all . I believe in an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. This message must be loud and clear to our Sinhala enemy. I sincerely hope in the interest of freedom of expression this message is not edited out by the CT editor.

    Prabhakaran (who is from low cast Karayer community) and Thamil Selvam (Ambattan caste) including their LC community members were misled by the High Caste Wellala Tamils. All the low caste Tamil fighters died in Mullivaikkal and finally High Caste Wellala Vigneshwaran from Colombo 7 became the king.

      Caste is not native Tamil/Dravidian culture, it was created and foisted upon the people of the SubContinent by Aryans, and it an Aryan language that Sinhalese speak, despite not being Aryan. –Sinhalese are just furthering the genocidal plan of those ancient Aryans by trying to impose Sinhala on everyone in Sri Lanka, truly a case of ignorance and StockHolm Syndrome by Sinahalese society.

      You have pulled out a wonderful story from yourrear end which stinks. Listen you chap you modayas can day dream about a caste division among the Tamils but it no longer exists except in your Sinhala fools wet dreams. In fact your Karawas

      , durawas, Salangamas are all original South Indian Tamils who have adopted Sinhalese language pretty soon given the chance they will return to their original fold acknowledging their Tamilness. Can a non Kandyan govigama or for that matter a non Govigama Sinhalaya become the head of state of your la la land called sriii Lanka? What happened tomKarawa SarathbFonseka? You morons are worse than than the ostrich.

    ONLY THE NAIVE WILL BELIEVE THAT THE GOVERNMENT WILL ALLOW A REAL TAMIL MAJORITARIAN ADMINISTRATION TO BECOME EXPLICIT IN THE NORTH AND EAST, UNDER THE PROVISIONS OF THE 13TH AMENDMENT. THE REALITY IS THAT THE GOVERNMENT WILL CONTINUE ITS POLICY OF SINHALA COLONIZATION OF THE NORTH AND EAST UNTIL A PERMANENT DEMOGRAPHIC CHANGE IS A GROUND REALITY.THAT WILL PUT PAID TO THE TAMIL HOMELANDS CLAIM.

    WHEN MR POKE OF 13A-PLUS WHAT HE MEANT WAS A 13A PLUS THAT WOULD BE POSITED IN THE CONTROL OF A TAMIL MINORITY NORTHERN PROVINCIAL COUNCI. THAT’S A GOOD 7 TO 10 OR EVEN PERHAPS 15 YEAR AWAY.

    UNTIL THEN, THE ARMY WILL STAY PUT, THE GOVERNOR WILL REMAIN IN CONTROL UNDER DIRECT ORDERS FROM MR,,ON AND ON UNTIL THERE WILL BE NOTHING TO DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN THE NPC AND ANY OTHER COUNCIL.

    NOW THEN, THAT’S THE REALITY THAT THE TAMILS WILL HAVE TO ACKNOWLEDGE…AND ACCEPT OR REJECT. THE RESPONSE TO THAT REALITY WILL HAVE A MASSIVE IMPACT ON SRI LANKA FOR A LONG TIME TO COME…UNLESS THERE IS A CHANGE OF GOVERNMENT. THAT DOES NOT SEEM LIKELY IN THE IMMEDIATE OR MEDIUM TERM FUTURE. NOT A CHANGE VIA ESTABLISHED METHODS ANYWAY OR UNLESS THE GLOBAL COMMUNITY INTERVENES POSITIVELY TO NOT ONLY BRING ABOUT REGIME CHANGE BUT ALSO A CHANGE IN ETHNIC POLITICAL PERCEPTIONS IN COLOMBO’S SINHALA POLITICAL PARTIES. EVEN AN ALTERNATE GOVERNMENT WILL BE HELD CAPTIVE BY THE MASSIVE SINHALA-BUDDHIST LOBBY THAT WILL NEVER PERMIT 13a TO BE IMPLEMENTED.

    I’M AFRAID THE BALL IS NOT IN COLOMBO’S COURT.THE MESSAGES FROM COLOMBO ARE CLEAR: NO CHANGE IN ACCORDANCE WITH 13A.

    WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE ? GENEVA OR NO GENEVA, THE COLLECTIVE SINHALA-BUDDHIST POLITICAL STANCE WILL NOT CHANGE. EVEN A SUCCESSFUL WAR CRIMES PROCESS WILL NOT CHANGE THE COLLECTIVE SINHALA-BUDDHIST STANCE VIS-A-VIS THE 13A. MANY TAMILS RUN AWAY WITH THE ASSUMPTION THAT A TOTAL REGIME CHANGE IN COLOMBO WILL OPEN THE WAY FORWARD TO IMPLEMENT 13A FULLY. NOTHING CAN BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH. THE FORCES WHICH PREVAIL OVER ANY ADMINISTRATION IN COLOMBO WILL UNLEASH ARSON AND MURDER ON A SCALE THAT WILL DWARF OTHER ANTI-TAMIL POGROMS OF THE PAST. IT WILL ALSO WIPE OUT PRO-13A SINHALA POLITICIANS.

        Muthu, we’re by and large dealing with a collective mass Sinhala supremacist- anti-Tamil psyche. We’ve had governments come and go…but mark this, rightist, leftist, center of left etc, they’ve all done their thing for as long as they’ve been in power and always, ALWAYS ! chosen to pull THE WOOL OVER THE EYE OF THE TAMILS WHEN THEY BLOODY WELL KNEW ALL ALONG THAT there is that “UGLY SINHALESE” [ LIKE THE ‘UGLY AMERICAN’ STALKING THEM EVERYWHERE POISED TO POUNCE ON EVERY OPPORTUNITY TO TRAMPLE THEM UNDER FOOT. OH!I KNOW THAT MANY SINHALESE WILL CRY IN HORROR OVER THIS STATEMENT. AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED THEY KNOW WHAT THEY CAN DO WITH THEMSELVES. POLITICAL LEADERS OF THE SOUTH HAVE THROUGH THE DECADES PLAYED AROUND WITH THE TRUST AND ASPIRATIONS OF THE TAMILS FULLY WELL KNOWING THAT THE NEXT ORGY OF TAMIL BASHING WAS ENTIRELY AT THE COMMAND OF THE COMMON RACIST MASSES EGGED ON BY SECTIONS OF THE CLERGY.Even when Tamil demands amounted to no more than a measly Rs.500 million for road and agricultural development[old Hansard copies will bear me out]the TULF MP’S IN PARLIAMENT WERE ABUSED BEYOND BELIEF.

        LET ME STATE THIS VERY CLEARLY, AND GIVE ME A CLEAR ANSWER : WHEN WAS ANY MANDATE OF THE TAMIL PEOPLE, GIVEN TO THEIR MP’S IN THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT OR REPS IN THE PROVINCIAL COUNCIL EVER GIVEN TWO HOOTS’ NOTICE ? YOUR MP’ WERE BOOED, HECKLED, INTIMIDATED, SLIPPERED AND MALTREATED TO THE EXTENT AT WHICH THE ‘BOYS’SAID TO THEMSELVES THAT ” ENOUGH IS ENOUGH’.

        SINHALA -BUDDHIST EXTREMISM CREATED TERRORISM WHEN TAMIL YOUTH FOUND THEMSELVES IN A NIHILISTIC STATE WITH THEIR BACKS LITERALLY TO THE WALLS. THAT’S WHEN EELAM TOOK CONCRETE SHAPE AS A PERMANENT ALTERNATIVE IN THE FACE OF WHAT WAS RIGHTLY SEEN AS AN UNCHANGEABLE AND TOO DEEPLY INGRAINED SUPREMACIST SINHALA-BUDDHIST, ANTI-TAMIL CULTURE.

        BUT AS JUSTICE SANSONI PUT IT,[WHEN LESSER LEGITIMATE DEMANDS ARE NOT DELIVERED] THE CRY FOR EELAM WILL BE RESISTED TO THE MAXIMUM.

        THEY NOW THEY’VE PUSHED THE TAMILS SO FAR THAT NOTHING SHORT OF A FULL MILITARY PRESENCE IN THE NORTH CAN LEND HOPE OF THWARTING ANOTHER UPRISING. ALL THE CONCESSIONS MADE TO INDIA TO HOLD PC ELECTIONS ETC ARE JUST SO MUCH HOGWASH. IT’S AMAZING THAT THE INDIAN LEADERS ARE SO BLOODY STUPID AS TO BELIEVE THAT THEY CAN MAKE 13a STICK WITH SOME CURSORY PRESSURES ON COLOMBO EVERY NOW AND THEN.13A WILL NEVER BE GIVEN. THAT’S ALL CRAPPY NONSENSE.THE SOONER THE GULLIBLE TAMILS AND THE INDIANS ACKNOWLEDGE THAT FACT THE SOONER THEY CAN END THEIR BOUTS OF DAYDREAMING AND GET DOWN TO SERIOUS,PRAGMATIC PLANNING FOR THEIR FUTURE. ALL ELSE IS BALDERDASH. THE ONLY ASSES WHO BENEFIT FROM THIS EXERCISE ARE GOVERNMENT’S WORDSMITHS WHO GET NEWER OPPORTUNITIES TO FINE HONE THEIR ‘SPIN’ FINGERS …. THOUGH THEY MIGHT NEVER APPROACH OUR MASTER CHUCKER MURALI IN THAT DEPARTMENT. I THINK THE HEADLINE OF A BRITISH TABLOID ON MURALI’S CHUCKING PROWESS IN THE TESTS WAY BACK WHEN IN ENGLAND IS TRUE OF THE GOVERNMENT’S SPIN DOCTORS THERE IN COLOMBO, IN RELATION TO THE TAMILS: “MAULED BY A MUTT” SAID ONE HEADLINE. AND THE TAMILS ARE TODAY BEING MAULED BY THE GOVERNMENT’S MUTTS IN EVERY NEWSPAPER AND ON EVERY WEBSITE.

        WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT THE FOREGOING. IT’S MY CANDID ANALYSIS… AND AFTER HALF A BLOODY CENTURY IN JOURNALISM I GUESS I KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT.

        We’ve had men such as SWRD, JR, PREMADASA, WE’VE HAD SIRIMA AND CHANDRIKA, WE’VE HAD DUDLEY ETC…
        TELL ME, WERE THEY CAPABLE OR INCAPABLE OF ADDRESSING THE GRIEVANCES OF THE TAMILS WHEN THOSE GRIEVANCES WERE RELATIVELY CHILD’S PLAY COMPARED TO WHAT THEY’VE BALLOONED INTO TODAY ?

        AND MARK THIS MUTHU, WITH QUITE A NUMBER OF OIL EXPLORATION REPORTS SIGNALLING RESERVES OF OIL AND GAS, SOME IN THE NORTH AND NORTH-EAST, THE STANCES OF THOSE IN THE SOUTH WILL BECOME SOMEWHAT MORE RIGID…DON’T YOU AGREE ?

        ANOTHER PROBLEM MUTHU: WHAT DO YOU DO WITH TAMIL TRAITORS?

        HECK, YOU’VE GOT A MAAAAASSSSIVE NUT TO CRACK MY FRIEND. MY SYMPATHIES ARE WITH YOU.

          Winston, thanks for your reply. Still I wonder Sir Pon Ramanathan, chelvanayagam, gg all knew these Sinhala fasicist. Why they never tried Ali ginnas way. We tamils know million time Sinhala barbarism never going to change against tamils. They had used the world opinion after 9/11. They deceive the world still they trying to. Hope will change sooner. Mad praba believed only arms, he was right some extend. He should have change the direction after 9/11. He fool missed it we tamils paying heavily. I still believe we will win one day.

            Muthu, don’t ever make the mistake that Pon, Chelva et al made .They vastly underestimated the parameters of Sinhala barbarity. That profile is yet to see full public expression.

            Mad Prabha ? I think it was more a case of him being driven berserk by mounting adverse circumstances and external threats, changes including India’s ambivalence [ the worst miscreant in this tragedy !]and the inability as well as reluctance of the Tamils, a most gentle and peace loving people not easily given to violence, to back him before the freedom struggle turned into terrorism. Had they been an aggressively belligerent race I think all hell would have broken loose and the end result could have been still in the making.
            Yes, Prabha lost direction.. and the struggle.And Rajiv Gandhi proved his stupidity, egged on by Dixit, in believing that India could ram the 13A down the throats of the extremists.If he had an ounce of intelligence he would have known that Colombo would soon get anew set of leaders who would use geo-political trends to checkmate India…and that’s exactly what has happened. Gotabhaya was sent under summons to MR, to Delhi,to cut a deal with Manmohan to avert a crisis in Geneva.MR is too deeply enmeshed in the Chinese trap to back out now and the message would have been ” give us time to talk to Beijing”. MR will as usual bullshithis way out of this impasse too ; [if he can!] So we can expect some big news from China any time now. Sri lanka must escape the noose in Geneva.That scenario is in China’s interest and India has a strong card to play on that score to make beijing cut a deal with Delhi.

            Prabha and Rajiv made the same mistake. They failed to see these developments. Time was of the essence …and that was runnign out. Prabha panicked and launched into terrorism. Tragic but true.

            By the way, the Tamils are not paying heavily due to Prabha. They are paying for not backing him before the struggle became ugly.

            But things have a way of changing. World conditions change throwing up new possibilities.India just might stop playing games with the Tamil issue and treat it as the massive human tragedy it is instead of playing parochial politics with the lives of the Sri Lankan Tamils.More Tamils in the British and Canadian parliaments will prove to be powerful lever to move world opinion to bring pressure to bear on Colombo so that a viable alternative could be thrashed out via negotiation.

            I do agree that you can win one day.

      Only on third of all Tamils in Sri Lanka live in the so-called Tamil homeland of NP. Majority Tamils live among Sinhalas in seven provinces where Sinhalese are the majority. If that is so what’s wrong others (Sinhalese and Muslims) live in the so-called Tamil homeland of NP as well.

        “Only on third of all Tamils in Sri Lanka live in the so-called Tamil homeland of NP”..

        Would you like them to pack their bags go to their homeland in Tamilnadu? Its good idea. I too want them to leave. Only thing that stop them from leaving is that they want to take their Sinhala brethren with them.

        ” If that is so what’s wrong others (Sinhalese and Muslims) live in the so-called Tamil homeland of NP as well”.

        Its not wrong. However we allowed Tamil/Sinhala kallthonis to live among ourselves. Now we have lost the entire island to the North/South Indian descendants.

        AGREE WITH YOU NV, ON ONE CONDITION: GIVE THE GUARANTEE OF A PERMANENT DEMOCRATIC CHANGE.I MIGHT ADD :’A PERMANENT , DEMOCRATIC CHANGE WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF THE EXISTING PARAMETERS, NOT AN ” ENGINEERED” ONE, NOT ONE THAT RECOGNIZES AND EMBODIES A SINHALA/BUDDHIST MAJORITARIAN SUZERAINTY MINDSET, NOT ONE THAT SEEKS TO IMPLEMENT THAT ‘ENGINEERING’ BY FORCED OR SUBTLE METHODS OF SO CALLED ” ASSIMILATION” WHICH IS BUT AN EUPHEMISM FOR DESTROYING,BY FORCE AND STEALTH, UNDER THE THREAT OF REPRISAL, A CENTURIES OLD DEMOGRAPHIC FACT, AN ESTABLISHED RIGHT OF OCCUPATION OR RESIDENCE.

        WAS THE FORCED EVICTION OF MUSLIMS IN SLAVE ISLAND ALSO PART OF THE PROCESS OF “ASSIMILATION”. BESIDES,HOW CAN ONE PERSUADE THE TAMILS THAT THEY WILL BE EVER TREATED AS EQUALS AS LONG AS THE HARPING ON SINHALA-BUDDHIST MAJORITARIANISM CONTINUES?

        BESIDES, WASN’T ASSIMILATION, ISLANDWIDE, A FACT, BEFORE THE QUANTUM LEAP IN THE MEME OF SINHALA-BUDDHIST SUPREMACY RAN AMOK WITH THE LANGUAGE AND EDUCATION POLICY. WAS IT NOT DURING THE DECADES OF ASSIMILATION THAT THEY WERE TROD UNDER FOOT BY EVEN A LESSER DEGREE OF THAT SUPREMACIST COMPLEX ? AND WE NOW EXPECT THEM TO BELIEVE IN, AND TRUST THAT WHAT WAS NOT OBTAINABLE UNDER RELATIVELY MILDER ETHNO-RELIGIOUS SOCIAL COMPULSIONS ARE NOW OBTAINABLE UNDER A VICIOUS METAMORPHOSIS OF THOSE FACETS INTO NAKED MAJORITARIANISM ?

        COME, COME, I’VE READ ALL YOUR POTS OVER MANY MONTHS ON THIS SITE AND HAVE HAD THE HIGHEST REGARD FOR AN OBVIOUS INTEGRITY OF CHARACTER THAT THEY REFLECT. HOWEVER, I GRANT THAT YOU POSSIBLY HAVE SOME DEEP OBJECTIVES IN YOUR OPINIONS WHICH I WILL ALSO RESPECT AS BEING HONOURABLE AND WELL-INTENTIONED.

        I’M SIMPLY BEING HONEST AND STATING MY OWN OPINIONS.

        AS FOR ” ein volk ein reich ein führer”?..IS IT NOT THIS VERY EXTREMIST SINHALA-BUDDHIST SUPREMACY AND THE TRAMPLING UNDER FOOT THAT HAS COMPELLED THE TAMILS TO ALSO ASK ” EIN VOLK,EIN REICH,EIN FUHRER”.

        WE SEE WHAT’S HAPPENING IN NORTH kOREA. FOR THOSE WHO HAVE EYES TO SEE, THE SAME THINGS HAVE BEEN HAPPENING IN SRI LANKA.AND WILL CONTINUE TO HAPPEN.

        TRY SELLING YOUR IDEA TO THE TAMILS… AND GOOD LUCK.

        BUT I DOUBT THEY WILL BUY THE WORD ” ASSIMILATION” SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY KNOW WHAT ASSIMILATION OF THEIR OWN VOLITION BROUGHT THEM. I DOUBT YOU’D CAL IT ASSIMILATION IF YOUR’ AND ALL FAMILIES IN YOUR IMMEDIATE NEIGHBOURHOOD WERE CARTED OFF TO NEGOMBO AND KOTAHENA AS A COLONIZATION PLAN TO ENGINEER A PERMANENT ” DEMOCRATIC CHANGE” IN THOSE AREAS WHICH ARE PREDOMINANTLY CATHOLIC [ OR WERE WHEN I WAS IN SRI LANKA], NOR WOULD THE PEOPLE MOVED OUT FROM THOSE AREAS CALL IT ASSIMILATION.SADDAM HUSSEIN EVEN TRIED MUSTARD GAS ON THE KURDS TO BRING ABOUT ” ASSIMILATION”. HITLER’S ASSIMILATION WAS RATHER MORE EXTREMIST GOING BEYOND THIS INTO THE NEXT WORLD WITH MILLIONS OF JEWS.

        IN CASE YOU’VE NOT HEARD ABOUT IT, THOSE WHO ARE THE “BENEFICIARIES” OF THIS ‘ASSIMILATION’ KNOW IT BY ANOTHER PHRASE : “VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS”.

    Unlike Varatharajaperumal we now have a chief minister, a former judge and an erudite scholar well versed in law and constitution. Tamils are proud to have CVV as their cheif minister and no doubt he will deliver on his promise come hell or high water. Now that the world is pushing this govenrment for its conduct towards ethnic Tamils during the war and after this government is left with no choice other than to listen to our chief Minister.

    CVV has all the backing both local and international and his influence in India is not to be scoffed at.

    It is a sad indictment that enlightend and educated Tamils such as former Attorney General Shiva Pasupathi had to seek refuge in foreign climes but they are not twiddling their thumbs and waiting in hope Tamils would seek redress.

    Although minsters were elected on votes it is the Tamils as ministerial secretaries who lent them sage advice.

    No more can MR hide behind Sinhal chauvinisim. The time is now ripe for MR to come clean or face international scrutiny.

    Which way will he swing? His very dear life depends on what he can do to appease EU and UNHRC. Time is running out.

    Learned CM,

    “make a significant change in the demographic pattern of the North in favour of the majority community following what has taken place in the East”

    Your comments about North is clearly understood. Why do you hide the truth about East.

    In the Eastern Province before the so called colonization happened, the Tamils and the Muslim settlements were and still are largely confined to the coastal areas (Particulary in Ampara and Trincomalee) which are relatively thickly populated compared to the sparsely populated Sinhalese villages which were spread over a huge area. It is in these sparsely populated Purana sinhala villages sinhalese people were selected. Just Imagine if the British did not include any of the sparsely populated villages as part of the Eastern Province would you have still claimed these lands as your traditional homeland. It is the way The British carved out provincial boundaries that gave rise to this illusion.

    I also notice that you too are talking of a Tamil speaking people. Inspite of the fact that the Muslims have a clear leadership on their own, you are trying to bring them under you control.

    This is most disappointing coming from a learned person like you

    Hola Vingeswaran,

    You are a Vellala first, a Jaffnese second and Tamil third in that order. You have allowed your caste conscience again to rule over what is in the best interests of people in this country.

    Do not speak as if you are speaking for Tamils when you aren’t. The best intersts of people comes when unspoken yet real Vellalar hagemony over Tamils are ended first. Then everyone must be treated equally and dignity.

      Vibushana you are definitely talking through your rear end. What has the Tamil caste system got to do with the Tamil right to self determination? You sound a real Sinhala modaya an igneramous fool mistaking a tree to a wood. Listen up you fool the Sinhala caste system is much more oppressive than the so- called Tamil caste system.for your information the Tamil caste system is truly dead RIP with the LTTE acting as the catalyst for the demise.

      You and some other Sinhala fools in CT are having wet dreams to bring it back . tough luck you fools it is not going to happen if you can bring the dead caste system back some one will bring back the dead? Pirabakaran back also. Sinhalese did not elect Marcus Fernando in the 1911 election against Ponnambalam Ramanathan why? Why did Sarath Fonseka was side lined ? Don’t even a village fool knows that the Krarawas, Durawes,salagamas are all recent Tamil settlers who have adopted Sinhala language. Still the low country Sinhalese are considered to be lower than the Kanyan or udarata govigama why? Why there are two nikkayas in the Buddhist order namely Siam nikkayas and amarapura ( Burma) nikkaya is it not true that the former only ordained Govigama Buddist monks and the latter is meant for the Karawas or the low castes.

      You Sinhalayas are truly an idiotic race. Worse than the ostrich.

    In the past week I witnessed an attempt at massive grab ( 125 acres) of privately owned lands in Navatkuli by a gang of Tamil land thieves who called themselves the ‘ Navatkuli Land Development Society’. The owners managed to thwart it with much effort. However, Suresh Premachandran , as published in the Tamil dailies in the north, claimed credit for thwarting this fraud. In this instance the police and the army stood by the legitimate owners of the concerned lands and arrested a few of the criminals involved.

    The Tamil people are indeed caught between the devil and the deep blue sea on many issues- Tamil criminals ( supported by unscrupulous Tamil politicians) and s short sighted and malevolent government that is guided by extreme parochialism.

    Justice Wigneswaran indeed has very choppy seas infested with Tamil and Sinhala political sharks to navigate. Fortunately he has the right skills and the personality to do so. He is the right man, in the right seat, at the right time!

        What I said in essence was that land is being stolen in the north by Tamil predators and a predatory government! The Tamils are victims in both instances. The ordinary Tamils in this country are like the drum that is beaten at both ends. The quantum of beating they have received at both ends has no doubt made them incapable of even standing up far what is rightfully theirs as individuals.

    “Present Provincial Council Cannot Be A Vehicle Of Change For The Betterment Of The Tamils”: Mr. Wigneswaran you say this.

    Then why did you contest in this particular election and became the Chief Minister? So true to your conscience, you should give up and do something else “For the Betterment of the Tamils”. Of course, you had given an answer stating that you had to tell the international community what you need and impress them of your needs. Please tell us what is your next step in joining hands with the International Community?. We very well know what that “International Community” did for the last thirty years. Also you speak of “Tamil Speaking People of North and East”. Please remember you are not the spokesman for the East. There is a separate Provincial Council for the East. Let them speak for their constituents. You deliver what is entrusted to you by the voters of Jaffna according to the Governing system of Provincial Council Legislation. If you cannot do that isn’t better to “PACK UP”?

    The Vellalar seems to hate census conducted over periods of time. In each case the census shows Sinhala numbers increasing.

    The census conducted before 1948 showed this trend too. What is happening of course is that people whom considered themselves as “Tamil” no longer do so. Perhaps those who are changing identity no longer wishes to be under an oppressive caste system. Vellalar should calls this “genocide”. The more Tamils switch the lesser people Vellalar have to control. Instead of making a mockery of the English languge it perhaps wiser if they spent time abolishing the caste system.

    At the end of they day people do not take their “identity” beyond their grave. Its a futile struggle these Vellar instigated emotions sending people to their deaths. One hopes after 5 decade wisdom among Tamils arise.

    Pearl,it is true that our CM is highly educated.Do you think our former leaders Chelvanayagam,GG Ponnampalam,Thiruchchelvam,Sundaralingam etc..etc ..are uneducated?They were also well educated.But what did they achieve to the tamils?Compared to our leaders,Thondaman is not that educated.But he achieved the citizenship to the poor up country tamils.After the Vaddukoddai resolution ,he distanced himself from our leaders with foresight. Had he not distanced himself from our leaders,the poor upcountry tamils also would have been affected so badly.
    I had high regard for Mr.CVV before he joined the Tiger proxies TNA.In a campaign meeting in Valvettithurai,he said that Prapakaran was a hero.Now he says that the army should withdraw from North.Do you accept this demand?Do you think that we could run the NPC smoothly confronting the the government?.He also has now become a typical politician.

    On one hand, our newest CM says the current state of affairs is going to change the demography of the North in favour of the majority…implying that non Tamils are settling in the North. And he is begging his Western Buddies to stop it……On the other hand he wants to develop the North and improve the living standards of the people there…Is this sheer stupidity, or pure Racism in an Economic sense..?????…. More people mean more growth , more spending more development and higher standard of living in conventional wisdom…. Vellalas of the TNA must have a different wisdom….. Only less than half the Tamil population live in the North and the East combined……It is only a little over quarter in the North…..How can the Economy grow with such a small population?……Is he planning to bring all the Wellawatta Vellalas to settle in the North?…Is he planning to sell the Govt Land to the Diaspora in the current Real Estate Boom to increase the per capita income and improve their standard of living???…..

    Politics 100.0 dictates that politicians words should not be taken at face value.They know how to please the people by speaking in different languages to different audiences.TNA politicians have mastered this art.Even if we give the benefit of doubts to Vigneswaran,Sumanthiran etc., we have to remenmber that there are hundreds of Sritharans,Ariyanethrans,Sivajilingams,Mavai Senarhirajas,Ainkaranesans etc. etc…for Wigneswaran and Sumanthiran.Utterings of one person cannot prevail over the vast majority.Unfortunately W is a person in loin clothe among a sea of naked TNA leaders.We can easily prove this point.Recently he said that he doesn’t believe in boycotts.But who has won?Finally the boycott group is always winning.Why do these things happen?If he doensnt believe in boycott he has to win over the Tamils to his side.He wouldn’t tell all these things in front of Tamil audience,diaspora and Tamil media.When it comes to addressing Tamil audience ,Tamil media or diaspora there is no difference between Wigneswaran and the like Sritharan .Wigneswaran also wants to show that he is a fan of Prapakaran.There is a saying in Tamil that Padippathu thevaram,idippathu sivan kovil(They read devotional hymns,while destroying Sivan temple).This is very true of Tamil leaders.They speak of reconciliation to the Sinhala audience while making fiery communalist utterings among Tamils.They openly called for retribution against Sinhalese(vali thanthavarkalukku vali aetpaduththuvom,Tamils have to give pains to people who gave us pain).Is it the way of making reconciliation?.

    The fundamental issue that reeks of injustice and discrimination by the Tamil demands set forth by the Northern CM is:

    WHEN TAMILS HAVE MOVED FROM THE NORTH AND EAST TO THE SOUTH WITHOUT ANY RESTRICTION, WHY ARE THE NORTHERN TAMILS DEMANDING THAT NO SINHALESE SETTLES IN THE NORTH????

    Clearly, it is the Tamils who are exerting chauvinism, exclusivity and discrimination.
    The CM as a man who held high position in the Judiciary should be well aware of this, even as he makes these demands.

      Hi Ladduwakutty

      If you can colonise Eelam with Sinhalese by the same logic why don’t we colonise Srilanka with Tamils from south India . Are you agreeable to that? If your plan under whatever pretext is to colonise the north of Ceylon with Sinhalese to change the demography of that territory why can’t we Tamils invite the Tamils from South India and colonise them in Southern Ceylon to change the demography there?

        Mr. Idiot there is no country called Eelam. Actually the name eelam means sinhala country.

        Sri Lankans of any race can live in any part of the island. That is why Tamils live in South. The same way Sinhalese will live in North and East. With time North and East should be made into multi cultuaral cities as this is a multi cultural country.

          You idiot ( your race is synonymous with intellectual inferiority so don’t call me an idiot you modaya).

          Only an igneramous fool like you will say there is no country called Eelam but for your information the Tamil territories of Ceylon is what we now loosely call Eelam. These territories were annexed to the rest of Ceylon by the British against our will in 1833 by treaty of Amiens. The Tamils never accepted this treaty and they wanted to secede . To this end they used the 1977 general election as a referendum following the Vaddukkoddai resolution in which the Tulf decided to fight for a separate state of Tamil Eelam and won that election overwhelmingly.

          To put it bluntly Ceylon is not one country it has two states Eelam and Srilanka. You Sinhala bastards cannot be trusted . You are worse than animals you proved your true sense of animal identity in the last days of the war in vanni in 2009 when you barbarians killed 70 thousand innocent Tamil civilians in the name of your fuc*king Sinhala Budhist Lanka. We want the international community in general and India in particular to make sure this kind of holocaust is never repeated in Eeam ever again. The only way to achive that is by removing all the Sinhala settlers from the north and east including the gotabayas thugs who are otherwise known as the Sinhala army. They are in our country Eelam killing, raping, stealing , pillaging and destroying our people’s lives Unhindered . There act of savagery is causing a total destruction of the Tamil race in Eelam leading to an ethnic genocide. We want to stop that with the help of the international community at any cost.

          We Tamils also need to if possible acquire tactical nuclear weapons using our financial power and if the Sinhala army fails to leave our Homeland we mustn’t hesitate to use the nuclear weapons as a last resort preferably starting at Hambatota to devastate these Sinhala barbarians once and for all . I believe in an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. This message must be loud and clear to our Sinhala enemy.

        Eelam is not an existing country – it is a figment and a fictitious creation of the Tamil chauvinist mind. The Tamil people of Sri Lanka have lost enough lives and money in pursuit of this myth. The Tamil Diaspora are simply a lost people living in a dream world.
        The country for the Tamils of the real world is Tamil Nadu.
        That’s that!

          “Eelam is not an existing country”

          Israel was not existing until 1948.

          USA was not existing until 250 years ago

          There was no Bangladesh before 1971

          There were no Middle Eastern Countries before 20th century.

          There was no Sri Lanka before 1972.

          Singapore didn’t exist before 1966.

          There are hundreds of countries never existed prior to world war 2.

          “The country for the Tamils of the real world is Tamil Nadu.”

          Your Sinhala country is either in Tamilnadu or Bihar. Full stop.

            Native Vedda says: “Your Sinhala country is either in Tamilnadu or Bihar.”

            There are no Sinhalas either in Tamil Nadu or Bihar.
            But there are 72 million Tamils in Tamil Nadu that you can join by going back there!
            End.

              Your ancestors came from Tamilnadu and Bihar by kallathoni.

              Please go back.

              We need our island back. Sooner the better.

          Hi ladduwakuutty

          Your Sinhala homeland is in Orissa east India. Eelam is an integral part of Thamilakam connected physically by Adams bridge also known as Ramar Anai or Rama sethu . Look at the South India Srilanka map that will prove my point. You Sinhalayas are castaways from lala land. You have no place in Eelam. Did you not study Mahavamsam at school? This will help you to understand the place of origin of you Sinhalayas, Perhaps you are illiterate.

            Pirana:
            What I said to Native Vedda goes for you too…
            Your responses are completely off track. You should stay with the issues. You insult yourself when you insult others who try to keep this conversation at a decent level.

              Yes Ladduwahetty by the way I have a friend called shampaka Lathuwahetty a lawyer I don’t know whether you are any relation to him. I just wondered. I agree I need not be rude and insult others. You score a point over me on this I accept defeat before your decency. However , we Indeginous Tamils are sons of the soil whether you want to call this island Sinhale or Eelam,

              The Tamils in the north and east are descendants of nagas the ancient Dravidian or austranesian tribes and we have nothing what so ever to do with Tamilnadu. We are strangers to Tamilnadu as much as you are. Please don’t even for jest say Tamil Nadu is the Homeland of the Eelam( Indeginous) Tamils.

              If I say you must go back to Orissa will you be happy in the same way I am not happy to hear from others when they say that the Tamil homeland is Tamilnadu. Homeland of the Eelam Tamils who are distinct from south Indians is Eelam and not South India.Tamils of south India belong to Tamilnadu but it doesn’t apply the other way about to Eelam Tamils.

    Quote ” They must realise that it was after driving away violently the Tamil speaking people from the Southern seven Provinces between 1958 and 1983 that colonization of the Northern Province with the help of the Military is being undertaken now. “……

    DID NOT THIS HAPPEN AS A RESPONSE TO TAMIL DEMANDS FOR SPECIAL RIGHTS in THE NORTHERN AND EASTERN PROVINCE…..

    IS THIS THE BASIS OF THE DEMANDS OF LTTE>>>>

    WHAT YOU TAMILS WANT IS A TAMIL MAJORITY AREA…BECAUSE YOU CAN NOT LIVE WITH OTHER PEOPLE….

    THIS IS EVIDENT EVEN IN FIRST WORLD COUNTRIES WHERE TAMILS HAVE MIGRATED TO >>>>

    TAMILS FLOCK TOGETHER…….

    SO DON’T BLAME THE SINHALESE FOR YOUR DESIRE TO BE IN ALL _TAMIL TAMIL country…..

    WE are the majority in Sri Lanka accept it

      You are literally a racist. What can you give others ?
      Hatred further ? Lot more provocations ?

      I am also a sinhalse. But my feeling is that we must not react thinking that we are the majority, they should accept that we have the dominance over them ? Everyone who lived their from the ages own are entitled to have treated equally.

      I wish very much your kind of peoples to be diminished from our country. More of you could only make more troubles between all communities. In an episode where peace and reconciliation are being discussed – why to exchange this kind of views – to further deepen the wounds instead of trying to heal them. Sure wounds are on both sides.

      You say that tamils are not living peacefully with other folks – so what is the reality in COLOMBO for the many years ?

      Driving out Tamils from Colombo is what should happen NOW!!

      Then Muslims and Sinhalese can live peacefully in Colombo enjoying all the luxuries of Colombo.

      Tamil homeland is Tamil Nadu. Tamils should go back to Tamil Nadu. Until then genocide of Tamil men and genital-o-cide of Tamil women must continue.

      These guys, SPECIAL species of Sinhala_VOICE are like – frogs in wells.

      We are the majority – you are the minority … SO LONG THESE ARE WRITTEN IN THEIR GENETIC CODES, these buggers would never change their mind sets.

      Is today^s Germany the same as one found it 60 years ago ? No.

      Do the turkish communities living in Eu countries are not minorities ? Dont they the majority of them enjoy equal rights while living on the west ?
      What about the Indian and Chinese communities in the UK , dont they have equal rights?

      Differences based on skin colour, race, religions and other parameters are still there, but if you are citizen on the west, you have equal rights as the indigenous people enjoy them.

    Pirana,

    “We want the international community in general and India in particular to make sure this kind of holocaust is never repeated in Eeam ever again. The only way to achive that is by removing all the Sinhala settlers from the north and east including the gotabayas thugs who are otherwise known as the Sinhala army.”

    Sure India will help no doubt. Why the hell should the sinhalese settlements be taken off from North east. More and more Gotabyaya thugs should be stationed in your so called homeland, so we could drive out another lot out of our country.

      “Gotabyaya thugs should be stationed in your so called homeland, so we could drive out another lot out of our country.”

      It is a good idea.

      Once they have been ethnically cleansed could I hire Gota’s thugs to drive out all Sinhala/Buddhists from this island.

      We Tamils are beginning to loose patience and beginning to think radically. If the elected Chief minister of the North and possibly East invite the Indian army to protect the Tamil lives from the Sinhala army thugs the chance of India sending its troops with international blessing is very real at this point in time.

      I believed all my life in an autochthonous solution for our Tamil national problem But for the first time IAM beginning to think that we must forget addressing the Sinhalese as a fraternal race of people and instead we must treat them as our enemies as they treat us.
