Open Letter To HNB: Infringement Of Fundamental Rights Of Tamils & Insulting Tamil Culture

By Murali Vallipuranathan

Infringement of Fundamental Rights of Tamils and Insulting Tamil Culture

We are dismayed to learn that your bank had punished two employees of Kilinochchi Branch for commemorating the deaths of their relatives and beloved ones. Anniversary commemoration of the dead has been an important part of the culture of the Tamils and Sinhalese for several centuries. In fact one of the oldest Tamil moral text Thirukural dated 3000 years back in stanzas 42 and 43 stated the importance of humans to perform their duty towards manes. In this context we see your ill-conceived action against your employees who were involved in commemoration of their dead relatives as not only a grave insult to the Tamil culture but also a serious infringement of their fundamental rights.

Article 14 (1) (f) of the Constitution of Sri Lanka stated “Every citizen is entitled to the freedom by himself or in association with others to enjoy and promote his own culture”. Notably no restrictions are placed in this freedom by any other articles of the Constitution under any circumstances. From the medical point of view commemorating the dead is very important for a grieving person to recover and promote his mental health. In the Sri Lankan context this has become more important especially because neither compensation was given to most of the affected persons nor perpetrators responsible for the holocaust were brought to justice.

Kilinochchi is a place where very large number of residents belonging to this region suffered heavy causalities in 2009. Therefore your bank which intend to promote business relationships with Tamils in this area should have tried to understand the feelings of the people in the area and itself organized the cultural event of commemorating the dead anniversary on 18thMay. Instead of this goodwill action your bank along with irresponsible southern racist media had gone to the level of portraying the peaceful commemorative event as an event sympathizing with the LTTE. We strongly condemn this oppressive action by your bank. I am sure that you are fully aware for several decades Tamils had preferred Hatton National Bank to other state banks for obvious reasons. Now since your action against the Kilinochchi staff is published in the media several Tamils have started closing their accounts and your bank is rapidly losing popularity among Tamils.

Therefore if you wish to continue your business successfully with Tamils in future I suggest the following:

  1. Reinstate the interdicted officers without delay and pay compensation for the mental suffering and humiliation they have faced by the interdiction.
  2. Withdraw the statements in Facebook and other media portraying the commemorative event as an event threatening peace and harmony in the country.
  3. Open apology to all Tamils for your action which had insulted all the Tamils and assurance that your institution will not obstruct participation of your employees in the death anniversary commemoration of Tamil civilians in the years to come in.

If you agree with my suggestions please respond within 2 weeks so that I can publish your response in media and will try my best to minimize the damage to the bank. But if you fail to respond I am afraid that this issue will get escalated by spreading to all the branches in the North and East, local and international human rights organizations, media and become a strong campaign to defend the fundamental rights and the dignity of Tamils.

Anticipating your early response.

Thank you

Yours sincerely

      Manage sounds a typical Karawa Ge name. Your Grandfather would have been a low caste immigrant from Tamil Nadu . He must have been a very bad Tamil , that is why he was kicked out from his native and he lived and spawned lots of evil low lives like you. Your comment only prove you low origins and your poor upbringing. All these comments only prove what Tamils state. The Sinhalese are bunch of low life racists, who rejoice in the death of Tamils. Nothing else. A bunch of genocidal low lives

      Kill the Veddah, Rob the Buddha and Blame the Sudda

      Is it true? I wouldn’t know because I have a lot of Sinhalese and Buddhist friends/relatives but I am happy to say I have no Sinhala/Buddhist fascist friends.

      If you witness people hating Sinhala/Buddhists it is because they deserve it.

      ” Scientists have identified a gene in Tamils that hate Sinhalese”

      There are 21 million who do know how to treat Sinhala/Buddhists this gene could help them.

      and Sinhalese are war criminals , racists and fascists , largely descended from the same coolie Tamil castes now living in Malaysia and Singapore. This is why they hate the largely upper and middle caste Indigenous Tamils.

      This is what Lee Kuan Yew considered a great statesman also considered as the father of Singapore had to say:

      “Specifically Lee Kuan Yew has said of President Rajapaka and Sri Lanka, “[Sri Lanka] is not a happy, united country. Yes, they have beaten the Tamil Tigers this time, but the Sinhalese who are less capable are putting down a minority of Jaffna Tamils who are more capable.”

      Vallipuranatha should be taught his place. He forgets that this is Sinhala country. As war hero Fonseka said Sri Lanka is land of the Sinhalese but minorities are allowed to live. They are now trying to dictate terms to the Sinhalese and should be taught a lesson that they will remember for ever. People have forgotten how Mahathir introduced the policy of Bhumiputra. Sri Lanka too should follow suit. Bhumiputra is a law which states that all senior positions in govt service should be reserved for Malaysians. As a result Chinese who were living for generations in Malaysia had to give up their govt service positions to junior Malaysians. The Chinese acknowledged the reasoning behind the policy and did not ask for a separate state but continue to work under the Malaysians. Another Sinhala war cry for the next election should be BHUMIPUTRAA !

        War hero Fonseka belongs to the Sinhalese Karawa community and like most of the present day so called Sinhalese , descended from recently migrated low caste Indian Tamils. Sinhalese DNA 70% Indian Tamil 25% Bengali and 5% Vedda . Sinhalese language a mixture of Tamil , Pali , Sanskrit. Out of this Tamil only belongs to the region. The other two from the plains of North India. Sinhalese vocabulary is 35-40% Tamil. Take of all the Tamil origin words from Sinhalese m there will be no Sinhalese. Sinhalese grammar , lexicon , syntax and alphabet purely derived from Tamil. Not Pali not Sanskrit. Everything about the Sinhalese culture food dress festivals and even the gods they worship are all Tamil. The native language of the island was Elu . A semi Tamil simple Dravidian dialect. So how can Sinhalese be called Bhumiputra( Sanskrit for sons of the soil. Not a Sinhalese word) . The only real Bhumiputra is the Vedda , even they arrived from South Indian 30000-40000 years ago. Then Dravidian tribes from South India speaking simple semi Tamil dialects. Tamils have more right to the island than the Sinhalese . Please stop posting garbage

        percy

        you can have bhumiputra but in return you must give quasi federalism for the nine provinces.unlike thechinese in malaysia for 400 years tamils had their own jaffna kingdom.So the north was not sinhala country as you claim.The res of the country ,yes,it was sinhala country.So you have 2 options now

        1.let the north become a separate country.

        2.Give quasi federalism to north an east as unmerged provinces.Don’t forget that it was the kandyans who asked for federalism first because the low country sinhalese were coming and colonising their lands.So better to give federalism for all nine provinces.or merge some provincesand give it to stop any problems in the far off future.

        which option you prefer one or two. it will end up one day in one of the two.

        what youdo after that,bhumiputra or whatever is entirely your business and if you do the tamils have the option of moving to the north or east or stay with you as second class citizens as the chinese do in malaysia.There is a huge difference in the chinese history in malaysia and the sri lankan tamil history.Tamils came as monarchs and warriors and are not going to be scared off by numerical superiority.

            jaffna kingdom existed before dutch.we have a proud history.in fact even before the jaffna kingdom was begun,raja raja chola and his son rajendra chola ruled the whole country.if they wanted to they could have destroyed the sinhala culture,but instead they opted to receive tribute only.unlike the muslims, tamils never had that zeal to convert others and ruled with respect to other peoples religion and language and culture.so is this the way sinhalese behave when the tables are turned and they become the rulers of the tamils?

              Are you saying your homeland theory is cr@p? And you don’t even buy that..

              Jaffna kingdom was established by a Malaysian origin invader. After it was Arya chakravarti of Kalinga origin controlled it. Only during Dutch period, a Tamil political entity was formed.
              And majority of Tamils were brought by Dutch to grow tobbaco.

                i told you we had the 400 year old jaffna tamil kingdom.The reference i made to the chola dynasty when they ruled the whole of srilanka in the 10th century was to show you the difference in quality of those who are born to rule and those who are born to be ruled and who due to sheer luck of colonialist powers leaving become rulers themselves.Now you can from your own experience after independence whatever party or politicians rule the country the quality is the same and now we are well behind korea,japan,taiwan,china,malaysia,hk,singapore when we were the number one when the british left and ceylon was known as the pearl of the indian ocean.Now we keep hollering we are this hub and that hub and plunder on.
                “Are you saying your homeland theory is cr@p?”
                i have never believed in the tamil homeland theory.i believe that the whole country is the homeland of the srilankans, as the whole of india is the homeland of the indians.Even the europeans are moving in that direction.
                “Jaffna kingdom was established by a Malaysian origin invader.
                After it was Arya chakravarti of Kalinga origin controlled it.”
                you are referring to chandrabhanu who was king of tambralinga,which was in thailand,not malaysia.He did not establish the jaffna kingdom but he and his son ruled it briefly for about 30 years.he came to srilanka for Lord bhuddha’s relic and managed to take over the jaffna kingdom which was established by kalingha magha.You have got it the other way about by saying magha took over from him.He tried to invade the south to get the relic but was defeated and killed by the pandyas who were allies of the sinhalese.

                who cares about politics.We had a powerful kingdom for 400 years before the dutch came.The first 30 years maybe by a kalinghan and thai,but after that by tamil aryachackravarthis .

                “And majority of Tamils were brought by Dutch to grow tobbaco.”

                just because dutch brought in some people to grow tobacco did the people of the jaffna kingdom just disappear into thin air.Just because the dutch brought malays from indonesia to hambantota,like the rajapakshe clan’s ancestors,does that mean the majority of sinhalese in the southern province are these malay -sinhala admixtured people.

        Ceylon Tamils and Veddas are the original BHUMIPUTRAA of Sri Lanka. Lanka was the country of the Veddas (Yakka) and the Tamils (Naga). It was invaded by Kallathoni Vijay and his men who came in a boat from Hindusthan (note that Kallathoni is a Tamil word for illegal immigrants from Hindustan). Today, the Hindustan invader kallathoni Vijay’s descendants are calling themselves Sinhalese. Vijay’s people (Sinhalese) came from Hindustan and Buddhism also came from Hindustan.

        Just because the Sinhalese (majority of them are recent South Indian low caste migrants who got converted to Buddhism/Sinhala) became a majority, right from independence they (Sinhalese) had been trying to control the native Ceylon Tamils (Bhumiputras) but they cannot.

    The CEO of HNB is a Colombo Chetty. HNB generally had Catholics at the helm.
    Reinzie Wijetilleke, a known Ranil basher was at the helm of affairs for a number of years.
    In this instance the CEO has overreacted to appease the Racist elements in the country.
    Quite unfortunate; Perhaps, he was caught between his career and the Racist elements at the other end. Another classic example of having been caught between Scylla and Charybdis!
    I see above from one of the comments that young Jonathan has won an award for Human Rights. There is no such thing as Singala Human Rights or Tamil Human Rights ; Human Rights is Human Rights.There is one comment above to the effect that it should not have done within the Bank.But there have been instances on an annual basis, where commemorations have been held within Govt: departments and Ministries.So why is all this FUSS ? This was a day on which a number of people caught in the battle between the Government forces and the LTTE WERE KILLED.
    Has this country degenerated to the point where the dead cannot be remembered?

      Well a war crime and genocide was committed and even the UN has admitted to this and is investigating this. The people responsible for this war crime are the Sri Lankan armed forces and the then Sri Lankan government. They are not making these things up.

        I am a Tamil and I would like to comment that during the last days of the war the armed forces AND the LTTE committed war crimes. The innocent civilians were used as human shields by both parties. Hence for HNB to categorize that these innocent lives lost were LTTE members is ethically wrong.

    Every human being has the right to remember his dead in his own manner. The form and content of such remembrances should be permitted to take place in public spaces only if it does not cause any pain of mind to other members of society or does not blatantly contravene existing laws or is not used as an opportunity to promote parochial ideas. Otherwise, such remembrances must be confined to private spaces such as one’s own home.
    Was the ceremony at HNB Killinochchi actually held to remember the many Tamils who lost their lives during the 30-year terrorist war ?
    Or, was it held as an excuse to promote and reinforce the acusations of ‘Tamil Genocide’ and ‘War Crimes’ being levelled at the GOSL ?
    The answer lies on the ‘plaque’ at the centre of the ceremony in the photo, which has been deliberately made tiny so that it’s contents would not be immediately noticed.
    A closer examination will reveal that what is being commemorated is ‘Remembering the Tamil Genocide’ and the identification of May 18th as ‘War Crimes Day’. What is NOT being commemorated is a ‘Day of Rememberance of Tamils killed during the 30-year Terrorist War’. The HNB Killinochchi staff have absolutely no right to use the public space of their Bank premises to commemorate such unofficial ‘events’. But they have every right to do so in the privacy of their own homes.
    We now have a highly-qualified Tamil Doctor and his cheer-leaders issuing open threats to the Bank in a desperate bid to divert the attention of the Authorities concerned from identifying the true objective of the commemoration conducted at HNB Killinochchi.
    ‘Tamil Genocide’ and ‘War Crimes Day’ are mere flights of fancy engaged in by a community whose hegemonic dreams were shattered 9 years ago.

      “‘Tamil Genocide’ and ‘War Crimes Day’ are mere flights of fancy engaged in by a community whose hegemonic dreams were shattered 9 years ago.”

      Could you clarify what you have attempted to say in your typing.
      What were the Doctor’s open threats that you are so fearful of? Are those threats going to cause melt down of banking industry in general and Sri Lanka in particular leading to global financial crisis, ………….. world depression …. return of the maids from middle east countries …. end of your cushy life?

      Read this even the UN has stated war crimes were committed . They are stating the truth if you and the rest of the Sinhalese cannot bear to here the truth. Stiff. Tamils have a right to mourn and commemorate their dead and the war crimes that was commtted on them by the Sinhalese Sri Lankan armed forces and the then government , anywhere in their homeland ( the north and east) and this includes the HNB. If the HNB does not want to respect the sentiments of the Tamils and only want to listed to hardline Sinhalese Buddhist Fascists and racists good. They can get out of the north and east and deal only with the Sinhalese down south.

      Kemo, absolutely. If a colleague of mine commemorate the death anniversary of his four grandparents at my work place he would be fired the next day from his position in the Institution where we work and in the country which we live, which prides itself as a bastion of human rights. Or they may suspend him on leave without pay and send him for compulsory therapy.

    Someone commented the Banks should abide by the Vellala Rules in the Northern Council.if they want to do business there.
    Fair enough.
    But you have a wait a bit longer I guess,
    Once ADK gives Dr Ranil the 20 A, Dr Ranil will be the Executive PM on the 9th Jan 2020.
    And Sira will be in Retirement in Colombo.
    Then the Banks can even declare it, as Mulivaikal Memorial Holiday.
    And even grant an extra one for Pirahaparan’s Birthday
    One problem though.
    Dr Ranil was in Mullative yesterday.
    He reckons there are piss poor Tamils there .
    Wonder who will open Banks there exclusively for them.
    Unless Vellala mates in Colombo want to move to Mullative. .
    Still ,will they take everything Lock, Stock and Barrel .
    Or Will they be having a Bob each way?…

    I suggest that when the New Govt is formed they should enact without delay a law that makes it a criminal offence to commemorate, or recognise the life/death. OF anyone associated with terrorism. The law should cover corporate bodies and institutions which should be subject to withdrawal of licence/right to continue business. It is futile expecting the Yahapalana mob to do this. a strong, national minded personality like Gota should be entrusted with the task.
    Some one has to step up and secure the country and its people from anarchy and wilful destruction of property in the name of ethnic rights. International NGOs should be banned as in India.

    I would like to quote few statements by the state leaders of Srilanka regarding the burning of library in 1981. The following are the words of Sinhalese leaders, not from Tamils:

    In 2006 the President of Sri Lanka Mahinda Rajapakse was quoted as saying,

    “The UNP is responsible for mass scale riots and massacres against the Tamils in 1983, vote rigging in the Northern Development Council elections and [the] burning of the Jaffna library. He was also further quoted that Burning the Library sacred to the people of Jaffna was similar to shooting down Lord Buddha”

    In 1991 the then president of Sri Lanka Ranasinghe Premadasa publicly proclaimed that

    “During the District Development Council elections in 1981, some of our party members took many people from other parts of the country to the North, created havoc and disrupted the conduct of elections in the North. It is this same group of people who are causing trouble now also. If you wish to find out who burnt the priceless collection of books at the Jaffna Library, you have only to look at the faces of those opposing us.”
    In 2016, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe as the leader of the United National Party apologized for the burning of the Library which happened during an UNP government

    Big problem here. Hon Pirapharan showed how to keep these Sinhala bastards in their place. Gotapaya is now trying to rouse the Sinhalese. We need Viggy to give us the lead.only thing is Viggys grandmother was the servant woman in their house and he has Sinhala blood and cannot be trusted. His grandfather was Ram Isvara.

      So sorry I could not use you as a human shield. At least I managed to destroy tens of thousands of your people. Gotapaya will do the rest.

    The Tamils in the West are all millionaires and some are on their way to becoming billionaires. Tamil GDP is multiples of Sri Lanka’s. May be HNB and some of the racists on this board need to keep that in mind. And the funny thing is the more racist Sri Lanka becomes the poorer it will stay. Karma is a bitch.

    I guess the SL govt should declare a different day for commemorating the lost lives of non-terrorists in the last days of the battle.

      Vallipuranathan: Ask the HNB chairman. Arsakularathne, he says I am Tamil and I am not Sinhala. but there are company policies and they can not do business with racist and extremist employees.
      I believe it, How about these two employees launch the next big bank heist in order to help new LTTE. That is How Tamils collected intially money from bank robberies.
