Pirapaharan’s 2008 Sermon To The International Community!

By S. V. Kirubaharan

British naval historian Cyril Northcote Parkinson (July 1909 – March 1993) said: “Delay is the deadliest form of denial”.

Since independence in 1948, frequent name changes and periodical constitutions have created the fictitious beauty of the Socialist Democratic Republic of Sri Lanka. In the island, the poor are getting poorer, the rich are growing richer and the Tamil nation is gradually losing its identity, territory, land, economy, culture, population, etc. These are the achievements of this progressive Sinhala Buddhist country.

Donoughmore, Soulbury, Sirimavo – Colvin and J. R. Jayewardene’s constitutions did not do anything good for the Tamil nation. Nor will Jeyampathy’s new constitution! If by changing the constitution any good were to be achieved to the Tamil Nation, this would have happened at the time of independence in 1948 or soon after. How can one believe in Jeyampathy’s remedy, when the present constitutional council has not even acknowledged that there is an ethnic issue in the island? As usual this is all bluff by smart politicians from the South. To be honest, when it comes to the question of converting Sri Lanka into a Sinhala Buddhist country, all the Southern politicians are united and moving swiftly to achieve their aim.prabakharan Colombo Telegraph

Non-violent parliamentary struggle, civil disobedience struggle, armed struggle and presently diplomatic struggle – have any of these brought fruitful results to the Tamil Nation? Land grab, colonization, Sinhala settlements and eventual change in demography, have reduced the North and East, to the North and to the Jaffna district alone. Terminologies like the Tamil Kingdom and the Tamil homeland have already disappeared. So what is happening in this island while under the scrutiny of the international community?

A group of some short-sighted Tamil politicians misled Tamil voters in the North and East during the last Presidential election campaign. In the run-up to that election, my point was that if Tamils want the international community to remain committed to addressing the grievances of the Tamils, Rajapaksa should win the Presidency. Having said that, I never motivated anyone to vote for the dictatorial Rajapaksa. However the current President who won because of Tamil votes is now playing hide and seek regarding anything concerning Tamils. Nothing surprises us! This has been the pattern since 1948.

Since independence, only two Sinhala political parties, the United National Party – UNP and the Sri Lanka Freedom Party – SLFP formed governments, sometimes in coalition with small political parties.

At the end of the war in 2009, Rajapaksa talked about ‘13 plus’ – which should have been better than the 13th amendment which was included in the Indo-Lanka accord. Dictatorial Rajapaksa managed for six years with his bogus promises, taking Tamils, India and the international community for a ride. He used these six years to settle Singhalese, to establish Buddhist temples in every nook and corner of the North and East and to grab more civilian lands.

Tamil paramilitaries closely associated with the Rajapaksas’ regime and other regimes, in maintaining their hard core policy of wiping out the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam – LTTE, could not achieve any viable political solution to the Tamil question even after the six or seven years, since the fall of the LTTE. Every government (including Chandrika’s and Rajapaksa’s) led Tamils who are anti-LTTE to believe that there would be a political settlement, once the LTTE was wiped out. Today these groups and individuals are disappointed and stunned by empty promises given by every government of Sri Lanka. To be noted, the international actors were also hood-winked by the Sri Lanka governments and they too are stunned.

True History

When we talk about the history of the Tamils in the island of Sri Lanka, there is no need for anyone to go back thousands of years. The colonial period of the island started 511 years ago and the Tamil Kingdom started to lose its identity only within the last 183 years.

When the first colonial master, the Portuguese landed in 1505 on this island, there were three Kingdoms. One of these was Tamil, and was known as the “Jaffna Kingdom”, covering the area of the North East, the Tamils’ hereditary region. The other two Kingdoms – Kotte in the South and South West and Kandy in the Centre were known as Sinhala Kingdoms. The Portuguese ruled Ceylon from 1619 to 1658 followed by the Dutch until 1795. Both rulers maintained these Kingdoms separately, recognising the differences between the two distinct peoples’ cultures.

The British took over from the Dutch and ruled until so-called independence in February 1948. During the British period, in 1833, all three Kingdoms were amalgamated into one, under the pretext of easy administration. This is the true history of the Island.

The British, who now speak about their unique and separate identity, were the cause of Tamils in the island of Sri Lanka, losing their unique and separate identity. Therefore, the present government of the United Kingdom has a duty to help the Tamils re-establish Tamil identity and self-determination.

Every Sri Lankan government systematically manipulates their opposition party or parties, Buddhist monks, extreme institutions and the people of the South in their favour, pretending that they intend to settle the ethnic problem. But there is huge opposition in the South to granting any political solution satisfying the aspirations of the Tamils. So whenever the international community grants time and space to the government, it uses this time and opportunity for more Land grabbing, colonization, Sinhala settlement and eventually the total demographic change of the North and East. This is the pattern of tactics used by every government in power since independence.

Federal solution is a myth

The political leaders in the South, as well as the international community should turn the pages of Hansard of the Sri Lankan parliament, to familiarise themselves with what was said by leaders of leftist parties in the past. They warned that in the absence of a viable political solution to the North and East, the country may face a disaster. This is not a threat, but a reminder.

The sweet terminology ‘Federal solution’ is today supported in the South by the former President Chandrika Kumaratunga whose father advocated and rejected the same in 1957. To be noted, Chandrika’s father S.W.R.D. Bandaranaike was one of the Sinhala leaders who sowed the seeds of rampant racism in Sri Lanka.

However, the SLFPers within the present government have already rejected any federal solution for the ethnic issue. Today, the understanding of the majority of the Sinhala politicians is that, federalism is equal to separation. In such a scenario, the present government cannot cheat the Tamils anymore, because they have ample experience regarding the myth of political solutions since 1948.

In fact, the present government is also taking the international community for a ride, until Sinhalisation, Buddhisation and militarisation is fully implemented in the Tamil homeland – the North and East.

Since the war ended in May 2009, they talk only about Minority, the North and in another few years they will talk only about Jaffna and Sinhalese. This is the progress within the last 68 years since the independence.

In my article published in May 2016, “Since 1948 – Sri Lanka’s deceptions continue”, I mentioned the following: “……When stage one and stage two had been successfully completed, their third stage began to take shape in the Tamil homeland, the North and East. While settling Sinhalese and establishing Buddhist temples, they initiated cultural genocide within the Tamil homeland.

The incident which took place in Jaffna University on 16 July 2016 is a typical example of the third stage. Now Tamils are attacked by Sinhala civilians with the help of the Sri Lankan security forces, even in Jaffna and elsewhere in their homeland. This is the progress one can see within the last 68 years of independence. Regarding the incident in July, mentioned above, a Jaffna-based senior journalist said that “because of the language barrier, the Sinhalese students either stick to their own ethnic group or mingle with the predominantly Sinhalese army and police. And the Security Forces, who have traditionally been at odds with the Tamil students of Jaffna, could have instigated the Sinhalese students to make an issue of the inclusion of Kandyan dancing at the welcoming function”.

This is the best time to re-visit what Pirapaharan, the Leader of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam – LTTE said in his Heroes Day’s speech on 26th November 2008. Whoever you assume Pirapaharan to be, consider the sentiments he expressed to the international community just a few months before the genocidal ending of the war. Consider his thoughts as if they had been expressed by a person of the calibre of your own choice.

The Sermon on the Mount is the longest pragmatic and widely accepted element of Jesus’ teaching in the New Testament. It is widely accepted by Christians all around the world. During Jesus’ period, terminologies like ‘Terrorism’ never existed. Otherwise Jesus also would have been branded as a ‘Terrorist’, and the smart oppressors would have made the world believe that Jesus was a ‘terrorist’. Fortunately, Jesus’ preaching laid the foundation for Christianity to come into existence.

Some excerpts from Pirapaharan’s speech – 26 November 2008

This land which the Sinhala state is trying to occupy and enslave has never belonged to it. This land is ours. Ancient Tamil civilisation stood long and firm on this land. Our ancestors lived and belonged here. Our ancient Kings built Kingdoms and dynasties and ruled from here. On this land where the roots of our Nation have sunk deep, we wish to live in peace and with dignity and make decisions on our lives without the intervention of foreign rulers.

In the beginning, it was a peaceful and democratic struggle by our people for justice. The racist Sinhala state resorted to armed and animal like violence to suppress the peaceful struggle of the Tamil people for their political rights. It was when state oppression breached all norms and our people faced naked terrorism that our movement for freedom was born as a natural outcome in history. We were compelled to take up arms in order to protect our people from the armed terrorism of the racist Sinhala state. The armed violent path was not our choice. It was forced upon us by history.

Even at a time when we had produced spectacular achievements in battle fields and broken the back-bone of the Sinhala armed forces, we participated in the peace negotiations facilitated by Norway.

Sri Lanka made use of the opportunity of the peace talks to attempt to weaken the LTTE and hoodwink the Tamil nation and the international community. Using the talks as a masquerade, the Sinhala state made preparations to wage a major war on the Tamil Nation. Making use of the cease-fire and the peace environment, the Sinhala state resuscitated its devastated economy and rebuilt its military might that was in shambles. It concentrated on heavy recruitment, refurbishing its arsenal, strengthening the armed forces and conducting military exercises.

The cease-fire agreement facilitated by the international community was abrogated unilaterally by Sinhala Sri Lanka. Strangely no voice of protest was registered by any peace sponsor.

In truth, this is not a war against the LTTE as the Sinhala state professes. This is a war against the Tamils; against the Tamil Nation. In short, a genocidal war. By turning the heat of war on our people and by burdening them with immeasurable sufferings, the Sinhala state is aspiring to turn our people against the LTTE.

Our freedom movement, as well as our people, have always wished to maintain cordiality with the international community as well as neighbouring India. The positive change in environment gives us courage to seek renewal of our relationship with the Indian super power. The racist Sinhala state, with its intrigues, conspired to bring enmity between our freedom movement and the earlier Indian administration. The conflict arising out of this environment aggravated into a major war.

However, at no stage did we ever consider India as an enemy force. Our people always consider India as our friend. They have great expectations that the Indian super power will take a positive stand on our national question.

No great changes have taken place in the Sinhala political panorama. Politics there has developed into the form of a demonic war. In a country that worships the Buddha who preached love and kindness, racist hatred and war-mongering vie with one another. We can listen only to the throbs on war-drums.

Successive Sinhala regimes have hoodwinked the international community with a series of deceptions. Commencing with the round table conference, the list of deceit has now stretched to include the All Party conference of late. During this period the international community remains cheated. The Tamil national question was also left to drag on with no positive resolution offered.

Meanwhile, the Sinhala nation has used its armed forces to set the Tamil land, ablaze. It has wiped out peaceful life on Tamil land, making Tamils destitute, displaced and wandering. Sinhalam has refused to offer the basic rights of the Tamils, split the Tamil land into two, installed anti-Tamil armed groups in the seat of administration while conducting a tyrannical military rule. It is now continuing with the war, offering to submit its plan to offer a solution only after the LTTE is defeated. Does Sinhala nation want to offer a solution only after the Tamils are suppressed and killed?

Does it want to wipe out the true representatives of the Tamils and their bargaining power before offering a solution? The Sinhala nation is refusing to acknowledge the historic homeland of the Tamils. In such a situation, how will it offer a just solution to our people?

When it comes to the Tamil national question, the Sinhala nation is adopting only one policy. It is obviously a policy of suppression. Even the tinge of hope our people had that the Sinhala nation will abandon its path of violence and offer justice, has now evaporated.

No political transformation has taken place during the last sixty years in the Sinhala nation. Therefore, hoping it will happen in the future is futile. Our people are not ready to trust Sinhala nation again and get cheated.

It is true Tamil Eelam is a small nation on the globe. However it is a Nation with great potential. It is a Nation with a characteristic individuality. It has a distinctive language, cultural heritage and history. Sinhalam seeks with its military might to destroy all these. It seeks to destroy Tamil sovereignty and replace it with Sinhala sovereignty. (Excerpts)

The war that ended in May 2009 was waged with the backing of the international community. However, nobody from the theatre of war in May 2009 – neither the former President nor the former Military Commander nor the former Defence Secretary nor any others shunned or refuted an interview, given last September by Prof. Emeritus M. Subramaniam, former Indian Naval Marine Commando, also known as ‘Kargil’ Subramaniam. He said that the body photographed and telecast to the public of the man exposed as LTTE leader Prabhakaran was in fact not him! There is nothing secret about this statement – his interview was published in the Colombo print media.

    What VP said has come to pass.

    The occupying army denies even livelihoods, peaceful worship, safe travel, living in their confiscated homes, living without fear of arrests under PTA, farming their lands, harassment by army intelligence, and with many still in refugee camps.
    The PM says that 262 Tamils are in custody since the war ended, but does not explain why.

    The NPC is not allowed to function like other PCs in the south.
    The Governor enforces the army regime.
    Why army camps do not exist in the south is not explained.

    This is supposed to be a DEMOCRATIC socialist state.

      Well, that is what Sinhala Buddhists always claimed as per Mahawansa, the Faith Island for the Para-Sinhala “Buddhist” as per Sinhala “Buddhism”, notwithstanding the teachings of Enlightened Buddha, in the Land of Native Verddah Aethho.

      So, LTTE Tamils took a lesson, and reciprocated in kind, by first ethnically clensing the Para-Sinhala from the North, and then ethnically clensing the Para-Tamil Speaking Muslims from the North too, within with 24-hour notice, in addition to the killings, war crimes.

      Both the Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils, and other Paras have no right to be in the Land of Native Veddah Aethoo. They should leave to their homeland, India, Hindia, Baharat.

      Pirapaharan has briefed the international community. Are those countries in a certqain list of countries supporint terrorism or at least they developed a export market for cyanide, materials for suicide jackets and other weapons.

      Those 262 Tamils should be innocent soldiers of LTTE sodleirs.

      It looks, Tamils are using the war to get lands for every Tamil who migrated during the war from Tamil nadu to vanni. So, they can establish the tamil homeland only with kallathoni – Tamils.

      Make a visit to Sri Lanka.

      Pirabakaran has become irreverent for the Tamil people back home though their aspirations remain intact.

      Pirabakaran was a genius to carryout a arms struggle with a population that was not prepared to go for a people’s struggle. Such struggle has finally ended to naught because it was a war to redeem the land and not safeguarding the people.

      If the Tamil Diaspora fails to reflect the ground reality, I regret the Diaspora will be doomed without any political influence.

      Please put the LTTE coat in the bin and start a new life to play responsible consensus politics.

          Go and do your own research to know the LTTEs mission of ‘Mannai Meetkum Porattam’. Read their mission, slogans and the songs.

          In this, people were roasted to fight for the redemption of the land.

            K Sundram:

            I still cannot reconcile the two – you mean to say redeeming the land has nothing to do with safeguarding the people? Let me explain:

            Today, thousands of acres have been grabbed by the army and one of the two contentious issue in implementing the 13A is about land. What started as an outfit, the LTTE was simply a hit-and-run group until the people turned to it for protection from the Sinhala army and regime. It was then hat need may have arose that to safeguard the people, and that includes their life and property, the LTTE needed to stretch itself as a stationary force and considering the numbers stacked against it, it has done reasonably well. There have been abuses and excesses committed by the LTTE and now stand accused even for war crimes.

            Is there any necessity to do any research as you suggest when it has always been clear on what is the stand of the LTTE. A sorry fool like you may not have the brains to understand why and how the LTTE came to roost. When holding a tail, can it be surprising that you have foregone or forgotten your brain.

              You said: “a war to redeem the land and not safeguarding the people.” Can you explain this?.

              Now you give your answer that you should have given in the first place without questioning me.

              Your rational: ‘until the people turned to it for protection from the Sinhala army and regime’ is contested. People were forced to fight and the Diaspora got the thrill without giving a drop of blood to the struggle.

              With regard to the land or people, LTTE alienated the people leading to its downfall. People should have come first before land and we are now cowed. All kinds of criminals i.e., state, local Tamil criminals and some the Diaspora Tamils are playing their role on the land grab.

              You ask what has the Diaspora got to do with land grab. They are selling their lands to anyone who will bid the highest price to buy properties in Florida and Canada.

                Do all donkeys have long ears? What is your “contest” when “people were forced to fight”? You mean to say they simply had sheer thrill to pick up a fight. Don’t be an idiotic don quixote.

                “Diaspora got the thrill without giving a drop of blood to the struggle.”

                You must then be more thrilled for the colossal loss of blood inflicted by the Sinhalese on the Tamils for so long that your dark and twisted imagination fails you. I have had already mentioned that the LTTE merely started as an outfit, running here and there. Where and how did it get the support to become the later day LTTE foot soldiers? Even going by your own argument, if the locals had decided to deny support for Prabhakaran or refused to entertain the diaspora, would the diaspora have “got the thrill”. Essentially, you are barking at the wrong tree. After all, during the height of the war, the heavy diaspora that littered the streets in UK and Canada in the thousands calling for a stop of the war did not have any effect. The Tamils in SL made a choice earlier on, whether swayed by politics or otherwise. Chelvanayagam’s call has been deciphered to be a call for war to protect the interests of Tamils. A donkey like you needs lessons now and then on such rudimentary.

                “You ask what has the Diaspora got to do with land grab. They are selling their lands to anyone who will bid the highest price to buy properties in Florida and Canada.”

                You see what I mean, a donkey simply shoots through an uncontrolled mouth and a half-wit brain. What’s wrong with people selling of THEIR land to whom they like and for whatever price it can command. Do you really understand the meaning of “GRAB”? Or have these people from the diaspora “grabbed” your own land and sold it without your knowledge or consent? That is fraud mite. If there are instances of fraud, please report it to the authorities – you see how simple it is. And for your half-brain, the commission of fraud applies to locals and those from the “diaspora”, but please stop confusing yourself.

      Justice – You said it right . The Tamils should admit that they and their leaders, past and present were/are taken, for a ride ever since independence and in fact they failed in their attempts to bring in a
      suitable settlement for the Tamil problem, mind you for over sixty years and counting and successive Govts.in power succeeded in denying the legitimate rights of the Tamils. The President and the PM are cunning enough to distract the Tamil leaders, peacefully this time , by offer of false promises of devolution of power,due consideration to be given for merger of both provinces i.e. North & East, withdrawal of the excess army personnel from N/E to ease free movement of people, hand back the lands confiscated from the people of N/E to the rightful
      owners,who are now dangling in make shift camps Improve infrastructure,
      build an airport and a sea port and offer employment opportunities to the unemployed, as N/E hold the record for the highest unemployment rate in the country but leading in drug consumption in conservative
      Tamil areas, of N/E, which was never heard in our times.
      While Tamil leaders are taken up the gum tree, slow destruction of N/E is taking place by keeping the army in the same strength and their intelligence men prey in,on people, specially on those ex Ltte cadres, rehabilitated men & women. Universities in Tamil areas are flooded with
      Sinhala students under army protection as if there are no universities available in other parts of the country to accommodate them. Tamil stu
      -dents studied at Peradeniya & Colombo universities in the past due lack of Unis.in N/E but today, every province has one or more univer-
      sities. If student strength is not enough at Jaffna Uni.,down size it,
      reduce the staff strength and build new Unis, where ever they are reqd.
      or enlarge the current ones, by doing so ,the govt.could avoid student clashes on communal lines as it happened in Jaffna Uni, recently and the poor students end up in jails and spoil their careers and most imp
      -ortantly,their parents in N/E, mortgage their properties to educate their children with high hopes.

      N/E gives an impression to the world that it is an occupied land.Major
      industries like the hotel & construction industries are in hands of the majority race and labour & staff imported from other provinces. Under the false pretence of improving living standards of the people of N/E, systematic & unauthorized colonization of N/E is taking place, with various excuses, which cannot be challenged and once the plan is completed, would like to ask Mr. Sambanthan, as to what kind of devolution of power and for whom he will be seeking for. The Tamils sincerely expect him to attend to day to day problems encounted by the people and save the land of the Tamils, and let them move freely in areas traditionally occupied by the Tamils,for centuries,rather than wasting time now on more serious issues with no success.This is planned
      distraction from actual problems, Tamils are facing. Firstly let the Tamils have a roof over their heads and then ask for the rest of the entitlements.

      People now feel that TNA is too soft and they are under the wrong illusion that the IC will come to the rescue, which is not going to happen as IC always take the side of the govt. in power, unless it is a dictatorship,the people are fighting against. A new set of younger
      leaders like Sivajilingam, Premachandran, Gajan Pon and other younger Eastern Prov.leaders should emerge. C.V. also should be there but he
      is very unpredictable but does not cow down like the TNA stalwarts.
      The new team should be a little more blunt than the current leaders
      as decency never paid dividends in the past era.
      Fervent request from the Tamils to M/s Sambanthan & Sumanthiran is to
      give a statement on what had been achieved so far for the N/E Tamils
      and when did they have a one to one meeting with the President and the PM on the Tamil issue.?

        ” Universities in Tamil areas are flooded with Sinhala students under army protection as if there are no universities available in other parts of the country to accommodate them. Tamil stu -dents studied at Peradeniya & Colombo universities in the past due lack of Unis.in N/E but today, every province has one or more univer- sities. If student strength is not enough at Jaffna Uni.,down size it, reduce the staff strength and build new Unis, where ever they are reqd.”

        You are on a parochial mode of petty nationalism. The present students are the future leaders of this island. They should learn to live with each other, exchange views and goodwill, share pain and pleasure, …………….

        Isolation is not the best form of progress and not good for building a vibrant liberal democracy.

        Now are you suggesting that this country should build ghettos, one for the Sinhala/Buddhists, one for the Tamil/Saivaites and one for the Arab/Islamists?

    Well said. However there are traitors amongst us such R.Sampanthan, A.Sumanthiran for power and Money are keeping mum without exposing the continuing structural genocide of Tamils in Elam. only person who is standing against and exposing the continuing genocide is Wigneswaran.
    Poisoning LTTE combatants is nothing new. Prof Thurairaja was murdered in Maharagama hospital when he went for treatment by an overdose by the Sinhala doctors under the instruction from Army intelligence. The Elites of Colombo were discussing about it at that time. Prof. Thurairaja was a world renowned soil mechanics expert having theory in his name. He was offered many positions in the west. but he decided to stay in Sri Lanka to serve the country. he later went to Jaffna to serve university of Jaffna . Cycling every day 30 km up and down. Army thought that he designed underground hospital of LTTE. while actually it was not designed by him but by another Engineer. His family of wife and four daughters underwent so much hardship. If he did really designed for LTTE. They would looked after the family.

        I think Tamil people are thinking on their own last 30 years LTTE was their to sacrifice their own life to defend. But now TNA trio wants to sacrifice Tamil people to defend their position as opposition leader (traitor Sampanthan, get money and privileges traitor Sumanthiran, Therefore tamil people are come out and protesting whether it is mulivaikal or parapanchankulam or Kilinochi. They know traitor Sampanthan and traitor Sumanthiran will keep mum when land grabs take place by army.
        Sampanthan keeps mum when Kumarapuram murderers are acquitted, Kannika wells have been grabbed by army and turned into Buddha vihara and Sinhalese are settled by army in encroached land which temple is demolished. All in his electorate. He is drinking whisky and enjoying life at the expense of Tamil nation. TNA members should throw the traitorous trio Sampanthan, Sumanthiran and senathirajah out of the party.
        Don’t we Tamils wish, if as per author real Pirapaharan was what was shown in TV real one comes alive

          Actually 51% of the total Tamil population and this included Indian origin live in the north and east and 70% of the indigenous Tamils live in the North and East and more than 90% of the rest within greater Colombo. Most of the Tamils living in the Sinhalese south are of Indian origin and they had always lived there and are the majority around Nuwara eliya Hatton Maskeliya . These areas should be demarcated as a special Tamil unit for Indian origin Tamils who had lived there for almost two centuries but this will not be done as Sinhalese will never create special units of divisions for Tamils and Tamil Muslim majority areas in the south, despite these people living here for centuries and arriving here legally, stating these are historical Sinhalese lands. On the contrary there carve out electorates and special Sinhalese only AGA divisions for the illegal Sinhalese settlers who were settled on stolen and ethnically cleansed Tamil lands from that late 1950s. The latest is a special Sinhalese AGA division now set up for around 3000 Sinhalese settlers in Mullaitivu , who were illegally settled on displaced Tamil people’s land after 2009.
          Stating that Tamils, largely the Indian origin are spread around the country as an excuse to deny self rule in federalism to the indigenous Tamils in the north and east is a very lame excuse and will not wash.
          Sinhalese extremist like you keep on stating this lame excuse to deny any form of self rule to Tamil majority areas with the intention of settling further Sinhalese in these areas and making even the remaining Tamil majority areas Sinhalese within a decade or two. Then you will state what self rule. Tamil homelands we are the majority everywhere, Very sure way of destroying the Tamil identity. I can see through your game

        Sinhalese also get free education. All they can do is run sea side resorts.

        Give Tamils the freedom and due recognition and they will not destroy Sri Lanka but they will build Sri Lanka

        Look at what ingenuity of the LTTE boys.

          The Sinhala tourists are flocking to Jaffna are visiting their land that was slolen from them by savage South Indians. Next time you go to Jaffna, you will see more Sinhalese but not as tourists but residents. One nation, one flag and forget the Jaffna Kingdom fairy tale.

            All these you listed above Sinhala people did to Tamils during the race riots from 1959 to 1983.
            Perhaps something Tamils learnt from the Sinhala people

            “The Sinhala tourists are flocking to Jaffna are visiting their land that was slolen from them by savage South Indians. Next time you go to Jaffna, you will see more Sinhalese but not as tourists but residents”

            I just visited Sri Lankan and Jaffna. I bought a flat in a Colombo I paid the market price.

            I have no issues if Sinhala people want to pay the market price and buy properties in Jaffna. On the contrary what is happening is the army and the govt is forcefully taking land from the owners and giving them scot to free to Tamils and as you rightly say to forcibly settle Sinhala people in Jaffna.

            And your mind is already poisoned by the Sinhala politics that Jaffna was once a Sinhala land.

    Tamils have historically got into one pickle after the other. They put all their eggs in Nandikadal Thambi’s basket including Sambanthan and Sumanthiran. When Nandikadal Thambi met his mentor in Nandikadal all the eggs with the basket went deep into the Nandikadal Lagoon.
    It is no different now. Sambanthan and Sumanthiran thinks the OMP bill is one up the Sinhala South. What they don’t realize is large number of Tamils who are classified as missing are living comfortably in Western Countries after selling tons of lies. The Swiss Government already want to deport 375 Tamils back to Sri Lanka. The OMP will show the real missing are not really missing. Then like the Internet Prime Minister of the Tamil Ealem all Tamils who lied to get asylum in the West will realize their own stupidity is biting them. When will Tamils get intelligent leaders?

    I made some comments in one of the articles appeared in the CT. I have many a time conveyed my assessment of the current situation in the North. The Sri Lankan government is still at war with the Tamils by keeping a very large number of troops in the North. Colonisation is taking pace in the North as it happened in the East. 1930s 1950s East was dominated by the Tamil majority, Now the Tamils are in the Minority in the East due to the governments colonisation scheme. Their plan for the North is to make the Tamils a minority. The stupid Tamil leaders either did not understand the priorities but harping on merger of North and East and few minor issues. It is very clear that the Tamil leadership is very silent without uttering anything so that they turn and twist the facts before the voters to be elected next time. These third grade leaders have to understand that:
    ” Our land rightly belongs to those who came before and those who will come after us. It is not ours to dispose of freely. Let us defend it even unto death”
    There are many Tamil parties and leaders in the North in order to popularise and gain something in the name of the people. What have they done to save the lands of our people in the first instance.
    In the same way there are too many organisations within the diaspora. To name a few, The Australian Tamil congress(ATC),British Tamil conservatives(BTC),British Tamil Forum(BTF) Centre for War victims and Human Rights(Canada), Federation of Tamil Sangams North America(USA) Global Tamil Forum(GTF), Ilankai Tamil Sangam(ITS USA), New Zealand Tamil Society NZTS), People of Equality and Relief in Lanka(USA) South African Tamil Federation, Swedish Tamil forum(STF), Tamils against genocide(TAG UK/USA) Tamils for labour(UK) United States Tamil political Action council and the World Tamil Organisation(WTO USA), and of course the Transitional Government whose prime Minister is Rudrakumaran.
    What do the Tamils want from all these organisations. Is it for the benefit of the Sai Lankan Tamils or for their own benefits. if all these Forums and organisations form one body and to raise their voice as one within their respective governments, the Tamils could achieve at least something. Stopping the land grab by the Sinhala government should be the priority and secondly a referendum to be held in the North and East for their people to determine their fate, either to secede or remain. There should be one cry and one policy of Tamils in Sri lanka and abroad.

              Most women are either bisexual or gay but “never straight”, a study suggests.
              “This shows us that how women appear in public does not mean that we know anything about their sexual role preferences”
              Dr Gerulf Rieger
              Research has found that though lesbians are much more attracted to the female form, most women who say they are straight are in fact aroused by videos of both naked men and naked women.
              The study, led by Dr Gerulf Rieger from the Department of Psychology at the University of Essex, involved 345 women whose responses to being shown videos of naked men and women were analysed.
              The results, which were based on elements such as whether their pupils dilated in response to sexual stimuli, showed that 82% of the women tested were aroused by both sexes.
              Meanwhile of the women who identified as straight, 74% were strongly sexually aroused by videos of both attractive men and attractive women.

    S. V. Kirubhakaran,

    Unfortunately the past did not exist the way many want it now. Today’s Eastern Province was part of the Kandyan Kingdom. Any historian including Tamil nationalist ones would accept it.

    • 6
      0

      Todays eastern province was part of Kandyan kingdom and often repeated half lie by Sinhalese extremist. The Trincomalee district was part of the Jaffna kingdom and the rest of the east was ruled by Tamil Vannimania chieftains.
      Periodically parts of the east came under the loose protection of the Kandyan kings. However this so called Kandyan kingdom was only nominally Sinhalese. The kings and the aristocracy were of South Indian extraction Kalinga or Naicker and most of them did not speak Sinhalese but Tamil.
      The official languages of the Kandyan kingdom was Sinhalese and Tamil as at than time Tamils were living in very large numbers in the Kandyan kingdom proper. They were all chased away after the fall of the Tamil Naicker kings of Kandy in 1815. Have you even heard of the areas called Demala Hatpattu in the Kandyan kingdom? The court language of the Kandyan Kingdom was Tamil and not Sinhalese as the king and most of the courtesans and aristocrats of the so called Kandyan kingdom hardly spoke Sinhalese. This is why the majority of the so called Sinhalese Kandyan aristocrats signed the Kandyan convention in 1815 in Tamil and not Sinhalese, as this was an alien language to them. This included the ancestor of anti Tamil Srimavo Bandaranaike. He signed his name in Tamil as Ravathai and not Ratwatta. This is a later Sinhalised version of the original Tamil family name. They took on this name and Sinhalese identity to safeguard their huge wealth. It is not only him but the ancestors of many of the so called Kandyan sritocrats now beating the anti Tamil drum did the same. Just like what many of the German origin British royal family and aristocracy did during the first world war. Battenberg became Montbatten Saxa Gotha became the house of Windsor.
      To the Tamil of the east periodic overlordship by these South Indian origin Tamil speaking Kalinga or Naicker kings posed no problem as they dealt with them in Tamil and patronise Hinduism. To them they were Tamil Hindu kings.
      You may call the Kandyan kingdom Sihalese but most unbiased people will call it a nominally Sinhalese kingdom that was ruled by a Tamil king and a largely Tamil aristocracy. When the last king of Kandy lost his kingdom he and all the royal family and most of the aristocracy returned to Tamil Nadu and his direct descendants still live there. Sinhalese kingdom indeed!
      This periodic loose overlordship of parts of the east by the Tamil kings of Kandy does not negate the Tamil claim for the east where they had been living for centuries. During ancient and medieval times England ruled large parts of France. France ruled large parts of what is modern Germany. Poland was ruled by the Russians and Germans for large periods of their history. Every one was ruled by everyone else. Even the so called Sinhalese kingdoms were ruled by Tamil origin dynasties and the Cholas Pandians and Cheras for hundreds of years so this means the Sinhalese do not own their lands but the Tamils as for most of their history they were ruled by Tamil dynasties.
      For the past 500 years the entire island was largely ruled by various European powers. The Portuguese the Dutch and finally the British who created all this mess that is now very favourable to the Sinhalese. As per your argument then neither the Sinhalese nor Tamils have any claim to their lands as they were all part of the British the Dutch and Portuguese colonial empires.
      Your weak and silly argument that just because parts of the Tamil east at certain periods came under the loose of the South Indian origin Tamil speaking Kalinga and Naicker kings of Kandy does not hold water. As these lands have always been occupied by Tamils from ancient times. Just because due to wars the local Tamil chieftains at times came under the protection of the Kandyan king does not make these lands Sinhalese.
      Then Tamils should own the Kandyan areas as the kings and aristocracy spoke Tamil as their mother tongue.
      Just because

    Mr. S. V. Kirubaharan

    You are genius than Pirabaharan and Sampanthan.

    Sad to see that Eelam Tamils are missing your leadership.

    We heard that you have said in many interviews that you are not politician, but in US the civil society members have taken led during their independence.

    Good luck S. V. Kirubaharan

    Hope the Sinhala chauvinist governments and their intelligent services will spare you! Be cautions.

    Someone told Prabhakaran is Pol Pot in Sri Lanka. He is wrong. Prabhakaran is Hitler in Sri Lanka. Hitler wanted to wipe out Jews. Prabhakaran wanted to wipe out Sinhalese. Although Hitler died, Nazi leaders who were responsible for killing Jews were prosecuted and punished. Same should be done to LTTE leaders who are alive. Charging the Government and Sri Lankan armed forces for committing war crimes is barking at the wrong tree.

    The UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention has concluded that Julian Assange should be allowed to go free and compensation should be paid for arbitrary detention but the UK government ignored that. Yet, David Cameron kept on insisting that Sri Lankan Government should implement the UNHRC resolution to the letter. Typical double standards of the champions of democracy. When the British Raj was ruling Sri Lanka, Wellala Tamils licked the boots of British to get privileges and now the British politicians are licking the ass of Tamils to get their votes.

      West is west the power that gave birth to Russia and china you see today- American people’s money saved both from being slaughtered by Germany and Japan the most advanced societies.

      The government’s high debt payments and bloated civil service have contributed to historically high budget deficits and low tax revenues remain a concern. Government debt of about 72% of GDP remains among the highest in emerging markets.
      The new government in 2015 drastically increased wages for public sector employees, which boosted demand for consumer goods but hurt the overall balance of payments and reduced foreign exchange reserves.

      GDP (official exchange rate):
      $82.1 billion (2015 est.)
      I’ts difficult for you to borrow and china did not give you free homes but india. China loans are short term big interest. IMF has come to lend a hand and once you reach $100 billion you become like the PIGS of europe suffering and after that you get EBOLA because monkey will eat monkey.

      You are the classic OLD ROUGE BUDDHA of Chinese philosophy. Idle beggar stealing and talking from all holes.

      Can you do yourself a favour and take poison or jump down from a high rise that Tsunami Hora (our charity in £ the biggest of all time.

        You talk Indian – history written by British and not by Indians. For British, Subash Chandra bose was violent, probably they killed him. So, learn the history from the right side.

    Dear Kiruba

    I am a Tamil from Jaffna and I really like to know the history of Tamil kingdom and Tamil’s history in Sri Lanka.

    Can you kindly provide chronologically the names of kings ruled the Tamil Kingdoms in Sri Lanka and their achievements(Please refer the chronology of Sinhala kings ruled Sri Lanka and do a parallel for Tamils and provide proofs). I would like to see a history from at least 500BC.

    Please show and provide ancient Tamil koils, kings residence, towns, cities, irrigation systems, civilization remnants etc in Sri Lanka from excavations and living structures (For example kindly refer structures like Jithavanaramaya, Mahabodhi, Ruwanvelisaya, remnants of Yapahuwa kingdom, Panduwasnuwara Kingkom, Many purana viharas, etc, etc) (Kindly don’t say all the historical places were erased to the ground without traces of even the foundation by Dutch, Hollanders and British. They ruled Southern part of Sri Lanka as well as India but many historical structures survived). You can also link whatever you found with the names of Kings as their achievements.

    Surely you have enough scholars to do this.

    Thanks

    During Kalapirar period there were no kings. the region was administered by civil groups in a socialistic way.A kind Like what Romans had at the same period. King Asoka could not win Kalingam and further south of it. So Asoka tactfully used Buddha and Buddhism to conquer the land which he could not win by war. That is how Buddhism came to Tamilnadu and Eelam. Hindu Kings and western Eurobe used the same tactics to enslave the countries. he send soldiers in the disguise of refugees under the leadership of Vijeja.

    Prof. Thurairaja as a professor alone couldn’t have contributed to bunker building. As we all know it needs many years of experience in the industry as a consultant/contractor. Water proofing techniques and new materials all change very often.

    Do the Tamils still think education alone enrich them in there land?

        Even the traditional methods of construction will have to come from hands on experience, and generations of passing on the knowledge and practice.

        Why are you denying the fact that you don’t have any industries to back up the education and you don’t know nothing.

    V.P was not trained in Sandhurst but he and his LTTE boys and girls were shining better than Sandhurst Chinese British and Pakistan trained Sinhala troops. V.P and LTTE never wavered from their goal of Eelam whereas Tamil political leaders since 1900s did not had the guts to stand by their election promises. Mind you that those politicians did not have any goals or principles but they know how to cheat the electorates.

    V.P’s mistake was that he depended only on Anotn Balasingam for advice on political matters. Bala wanted to keep his advisors post and benefits that Came along with it safe so he remained as a “yes” man to V.P . Bala did not want to have a team of eminent persons in world political affairs around him or V.P. He was the only English educated person in LTTE so he was treated like a hero by senior LTTE members. Last final years he was living in London but failed to do any political work. He neither encouraged or coached English educated young men and women born and living abroad to learn study analyse and get involved in social political and economical affairs of Tamils. May be he did not want his position replaced until his death.

    I do not know why he did not take any action to deproscribe LTTE. Can anyone explain.

    Kirubaharan is a good critic who finds fault with others, unfairly denigrating and vilifying the Tamil leadership. But, he himself has done nothing concrete to help the Tamil nation during or after the war. If he is not satisfied with the leadership he should go back and provide leadership. It is useless like Don Quixote to tilt at windmills mistaking them for giants!

    (1) The Tamil nation is gradually losing its identity, territory, land, economy, culture, population, etc

    If this is right, then Kirubaharan himself is guilty of fleeing his country instead of staying back and fighting. The major cause of the diminishing population of the Tamil people is migration. Ten lakhs of Tamils fled the country after 1983.

    (2) How can one believe in Jeyampathy’s remedy, when the present constitutional council has not even acknowledged that there is an ethnic issue in the island?

    So what is the alternative course of action? Talk is cheap but doing it is difficult. Kirubakaran is taking the easy path of criticising others from his air-conditioned home overseas. One of the objectives of the Constitutional Assembly is to find a solution for the national question. Other two are changing the electoral system and stripping the powers of the president.

    (3)A group of some short-sighted Tamil politicians misled Tamil voters in the North and East during the last Presidential election campaign. In the run-up to that election, my point was that if Tamils want the international community to remain committed to addressing the grievances of the Tamils, Rajapaksa should win the Presidency.

    This shows how bankrupt is his political thinking. In this he is in good company with the BTF, TGTE, ICET etc. It is like the mother-in law wanted her son-in law to be killed even if that means her daughter becomes a widow! His thinking is in par with the thinking of the LTTE in the 2005 presidential elections. By boycotting the 2005 presidential elections they helped to install a hard-line Sinhala – Buddhist chauvinist leader who destroyed the LTTE itself. If Rajapaksa had won the 2015 election he would have destroyed the Tamils. Gotabhaya Rajapaksa planned to settle 50,000 soldiers in the North. He publicly declared that the demography of each province should reflect the country’s ethnic ratio. This was also the recommendation of the LLRC. Is that what Kirubaharan wanted? I am not saying he was in the pay roll of the Rajapaksas?

    (4) Having said that, I never motivated anyone to vote for the dictatorial Rajapaksa. However the current President who won because of Tamil votes is now playing hide and seek regarding anything concerning Tamils. Nothing surprises us! This has been the pattern since 1948.

    Thank god Kirubaharan did not motivate anyone to vote for Rajapaksa! For once he was wise. However, he is insulting the intelligence of our people who voted with both hands in favour of Sirisena responding to TNA’s appeal. It resulted in regime change. After May, 2009 Rajapaksa claimed there is no minority problem in Sri Lanka. The Sinhalese and Tamils are brothers. On the contrary President Sirisena says for the Sinhalese to live in peace the problems faced by the Tamils should be solved. Does Kirubaharan and his likes agree that it would have been political suicide if the Tamils voted for Rajapaksa or even boycotted the elections? The problems faced by the Thamils have been multiplying since independence despite best efforts to solve them through both non-violent and violent means. At least today there is some consensus that the national question must be solved to the satisfaction of all three communities so that the country can achieve political peace and economic progress.
