Presidential Election – Boycott Idea Crushed To Shambles

By S. Sivathasan

Swift Transformations

A difference of 180,000 votes, voted out good governance and voted in mis-governance. This was in 2005. Ironically the very creator of this misfortune was destroyed by its own creation. This was accomplished in less than four years. Now in 2015, the destroyer seems destined for destruction. By whom? By a few multiplications of the self-same 180,000. But with a difference. It is a group of multi ethnic, multi religious, multi party adversaries knit into a single entity.

The wheel of fortune appears to move mercifully on. To reward the good and to cast evil aside. Yet a few among the most affected Tamil ethnic entity want to be lukewarm. Messages that emanate are incoherent, illogical and irrational. Can any good come out of this country? Cry some in in chorus. Whatever the electoral process, the incumbent President knows how to manipulate it, say many others. Whatever the election outcome, he will remain in power. If he sees any difficulty, his brother is there to mobilise the deadliest against democracy.

Such is the universal run of perceptions. Not without some sense, but with great unrealism. The source for this stance is, past happenings not being critically examined. There is besides deep rooted fatalism. A wringing of hands against factors over-mighty. But are they all immutably real? Don’t we see a sea change from November 20th? Are not the voters coming into their own by the day?

Tamil Vote Photo CREDIT- REUTERS:DINUKA LIYANAWATTEThe lurking dangers may or may not be. There is a growing awareness that peoples’ power can defeat them. In a rare unity all ethnicities have joined. The different religionists are together. Political formations are in some coalition. Collective will has prevailed for a common candidate. Ground is plumbed for a fresh leadership to evolve. Wisdom can consolidate it. Unwisdom will break it. Few are optimistic. Some have reservations. Close to Waterloo, negatives don’t happen yet others believe.

Negatives

In this medley emerges the thoughtless suggestion, best is for Tamils not to vote. Can anything more ridiculous ever surface? When the proponent of this madness is confronted, he turns spoilsport. He responds; vote for both and spoil the vote. It is easier still to stay at home remaining neutral when the South fights. Unsaid wisdom is from the burning Southern house pull out an ember to light a Northern cigar. How do these tactics help the Tamil cause? All the wiseacres become speechless. Though defeated arguing still is a fringe Tamil political party, TNPF joining the fray. How illogical, irrational, irresponsible and anti-Tamil they have all become!

Ignoring all these stupidities, Tamil leaders and heads of Tamil formations have come out in resounding numbers in favour of Maithripala Sirisena as the next President.

Figures are Eloquent

How do the two contrasting positions translate to electoral figures? Total Tamil registered votes is around 1.650 million. At a turnout of 75% 1.240 million votes can be cast. At 65%, votes cast will be 1.073 m. A difference of 10% makes for 170,000 votes. If we take the mean of 70%, there is a comfortable total of 1.155 million. It rises to 1.320 million when the turnout is 80%.

In the best of times our performance was less than half our potential. At its worst the achievement was a fraction. In December 2005, our contribution was NIL. For this act of default we paid in May 2009 with 40,000 lives. The arithmetic was; 1 life = a fistful of 5 votes.

Do the proponents of boycott realise the damage they cause? Even with no talk of boycott, we exercise our franchise at a fraction of potential. With it we will lose our all. Since most Tamils know it and are geared to acting wisely, they have refused to refrain from voting. Now we look forward with confidence.

But merely refraining from a boycott wouldn’t do. In the next 10 days they have to more than double the strength of those committed as of today. This gigantic task is with the political leadership.

Comparison with the Last Days of Ravana

When Ravana approached the end of his tether, there was a sequence of pitiable happenings. A devoted Brother (Vibeeshana) (Maithri?) deserted ranks and joined Rama. After battle was joined, he lost his brothers and able commanders in war. One day when he had lost all his personal armaments, Rama gave him a respite. “Retire today and come for battle tomorrow”.

Kamban the emperor among Tamil poets described the mental state of Ravana in the Ramayana. “Ravana the King of Lanka, was in lamentable mental travail, like one deep in debt”. How true in the current scene! The founder of the Dynasty, very nearly the ‘King of Lanka’, who quadrupled the Public Debt is now in deep trouble.

    Tamil community would not boycott the elections as they know the repurcussions with past experiences. It is important for tamils to join the mainstream politics without isolating themselves and build up a bridge with their Sinhala brethren and avoid isolation. Their voting power enblock would be a decisive factor in ths final results.

      Tamils have Two Options.

      1. Can ve stupid, Madus, Mootals, Modayas like in 2005 , and listen to their MMootal leaders and not vote as Citizens,

      or

      2. Act Like Citizens, Vote like a Citizen and Vote on the issue at hand

      Medamulana MaRa Family Dictatorshipo Vs. Democracy and La w and order.

      The Common Tamil Citizen is intelligent and will make the right choice.

        National organizer of the SLFP Mahajana Wing Tiran Alles has claimed that Basil Rajapaksa had personally handed over, at his office, Rs. 180 million to the then LTTE financial controller Emil Kanthan to ensure that the people of the north boycotted the 2005 presidential election.

        That deal had taken place at the request of the then presidential candidate Mahinda Rajapaksa, Mr. Alles has alleged.

        Speaking to the media today (Jan. 24) at his Koswatte home that had come under a grenade attack couple of days ago, Mr. Alles said he first came to know Emil Kanthan, then an employee of the Ministry of Rehabilitation, in 2002 when MP Dr. Jayalath Jayawardena introduced him.

        Following a request by the then prime minister Mahinda Rajapaksa to introduce him to a person capable of doing a deal with the LTTE, Mr. Allas said he had introduced Emil Kanthan to Basil Rajapaksa.

        After Emil Kanthan was told that Basil Rajapaksa wanted to meet him on behalf of Mahinda Rajapkasa, a meeting was held, Mr. Alles said, at his office,

        After several such discussions between the two, one day Basil Rajapaksa wanted to know from Emil Kanthan what sort of support the LTTE wanted from the premier to strengthen their link.

        After consulting the LTTE leadership, Emil Kanthan had come back and said the outfit wanted Rs. 180 million to buy boats.

        Mr. Basil Rajapaksa said they only wanted the LTTE to get the people of the north boycott the presidential polls.

        The money sought by Emil Kanthan was handed over a few days later in dollar – given by a neighbouring country for the presidential campaign – and rupee notes, alleged the SLFP (M) national organizer.

        He said he had revealed all these in his statement to the TID in 2007 subsequent to his arrest by them, and as a result the attorney general had withdrawn all charges against him.

        Speaking further, Mr. Alles said he had informed president Rajapaksa on February 14, 2007 about all these through a sworn affidavit signed by Ven. Uduwe Dhammaloka Thera who supports the president.

        Mr. Alles said he was now compelled to expose Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa’s deal with the LTTE as the president and Mr. Basil Rajapaksa were attempting to kill him ? the first such attempt being the grenade attack on his home.

        Mr. Alles was flanked by SLFP (M) leader Mangala Samaraweera at the media briefing.

      After the elections, when the Tamils had cast their votes in block, one of the contestants would become the president. Then what happens to the Tamil community? They have to beg the president to remove the army from the North, beg the president to grant more powers to the Tamil community and so on. They are only a second class citizens and they have no voice expect to vote for a Sinhala man as president. That is what Don thinks. What a pity.

    “It rises to 1.320 million when the turnout is 80%.” Is not Gota more eloquent,when he says ” So what?” Because he has a Plan of his own – MR not being able to curb?

    Will this E.C. be able to put in writing to the Secretary MoD that no members of the Forces leave their Camps on 8th/9th January, without THE ECs EXPRESS SANCTION. This should be copied to Lalith Weeratunga and an acknowledgement sought by return. The movement of the Army to places anew like Polonnaruwa should be re-allocated to their original places as at day of Nomination. This includes Army activity in the N/E from 7th morning and patrolling be curbed. Only on the request of the Police that they can leave their Camps for Official work. WILL the EC have the guts to do his duty??

    Thank you Mr Sivathasan, for your sensible and realistic position. I hope our Tamil citizens realise that democracy is a better framework within which to bargain for one’s rights that dictatorship, They should exercise enthusiastically their democratic right and duty to vote on election day, to the candidate of their choice.

        Thank you Karaiyuran and Sivathasan for your comments. I have answered you both separately.

        Sivathasan , My concern is given your past association with the former president you are not a neutral observer. Would you consider a article by the president’s secretary Lalith to be “neutral”?
        I wanted the readers who may not that you are a former consultant to Chandrika to bear that in mind when reading your articles.
        Also, your older articles stated that you were a consultant to CBK, the current one does not.
        Is it an error of omission or commission ? I would like a clarification.

        Karaiyuran , anyone who criticizes the opposition is a Rajapakse supporter? NO. Please read my old comments and you will see that it is not the case.
        In any case, I am at liberty to support anyone I choose. I have mentioned in the other article by Kumar David how I am yet to be convinced about My3 due to his strong association with JHU.

          Thank you for the information about Mr.Sivathasan. I now understand why Mr.Sivathasan in his earlier block, couple of days back suggested that “the Tamils without boycotting, should cast their votes for the good of the Tamils and for the good of the country”. I would ask again Mr.Sivathasan what good would the Tamils achieve by voting in this elections. The one and only reason the Tamils would vote in this Presidential elections, as you know,is to get rid of Rajapaksa who is an enemy to the Tamils. On the other hand Sirisena and his club members would be the same as far as the Tamil problems are concerned. If Mr.Sirisena wins and becomes president would Mr.Sivathasan guarantee that the Tamil problems would be solved, first by removing the occupying army from the North and grant what the Tamils ask for. Mr.Sivathasan cannot do anything about it. The Tamil leaders should not be hypocritical and insincere towards the long suffering Tamils.

        The whispers emanating from Vanni do not assure a sure victory for the common candidate at least in that area.

        Gota has already found a way of rigging ballot, to be precise army supervised postal voting under army controlled areas and army run institutions and thought to be widespread.

        Given that the army is heavily involved in this latest enterprise what chance the opposition has in this elections?

        I think you may build further factors into your modelling exercise.

            Concerns Over Religious Attire Distribution

            By Camelia Nathaniel

            Transparency International has brought to the notice of the Elections Commissioner a programme to distribute religious attire (Sil Redhi) amounting to Rs. 1000 Million across the Island in a manner that supports the UPFA presidential candidate.
            S.Ranugge the Executive Director of Transparency International Sri Lanka in his letter to the Elections commissioner urged him to take action to immediately halt this programme of distributing 800,000 packs of Sil Redhi using an exorbitant amount of state funds.

            “Each portion of attire is 5 Meters long. The order has been given to 3 private companies charging an amount between 125.00 LKR to 160.00 LKR. This payment has been authorised by the Venerable Watinapaha Somananda Thero through the presidential secretariat. The finances have been obtained by the Ministry of Industry and Commerce,” stated Ranugge in his letter.

            According to Transparency International the distribution of the above mentioned packs are currently underway under the supervision of a Bhikkhu organisation belonging to the Venerable Watinapaha Somananda Thero. They claim that certain temples have been assigned up to 6000 packs while others will receive 1000, 2000 or 500 packs according to the given instructions. Certain temples have refused to accept these clothing materials while others have questioned why the government realised their existence only during election times.

            The organisation further points out that according to the provisions of the circular distributed by you as the Elections Commissioner and the Election Law, distribution of free goods using public funds during a time when an election has been announced is illegal.

            Hence Transparency International urged the elections commissioner to immediately halt this illegal operation to be held on the upcoming Poya day.

    I am impressed by the observations of Mr. Sivadasan. If there is any group of people who is capable of protecting Sri Lanka at the present moment it is the Tamil community of the North. Muslim sisters and brothers as a group are equally divided between the two main candidates. Estate workers are incapable of any independent thinking and they naturally follow what their Thalevers say. Major unions are affiliated to the present government. So, it is the sole responsibility of the Northern Tamil voters to intervene adequately in the polls if at least a slight improvement is needed in the social structure. Of cause there is no perspective that Sirisena would help the Tamils if he comes to power. He is no different from Rajapakse who is his mentor. So the average voter in the North has historical obligation at this critical juncture in the history of Sri Lanka. They have to cast their vote without gaining anything from it.

    I strongly believe that Tamils participation will be there in this election without any sort of expectation from the Sinhalese political leaders. Unless there is a true change in the attitude of Sinhalese masses or Sinhalese leadership Tamils do not need to put their voting rights to bargain to get few concessions and someone else to use that bargains as a means to use that as a propaganda and respond with violence against Tamils that is what going on since 1948. I don’t know whether there is a real change in the attitude of Opposition political leadership or relegious leadership about the true democracy, sharing the power and equality. It is a foolish argument that LTTEs decision to boycott the election is the reason for loss of LTTE, massacre of thousands of Tamils, and the creation of this dictator.Tamils decision in 2005 to boycot the election is not the prime factor that contributed the current state of the nations creation of a dictator. who created this dictator? Who gave the support for his unlawful activities of this dictator? Who kept silence when this dictator massacred thousands of Tamils? It is the same people who now demand the removal of this dictator. Yes, not only Sinhalese masses, the neighbouring India, United States, and European Union all selently helped Rajapakse regime to use Chinese weapons to kill those thousands of Tamils who begged for their lives. No one considered Tamils has a genuine grievances and still want to beg them for enjoy their basic rights. Tamils will vote in this election but not for bargaining but to help sinhalese to come out of a dictator.

    I can imagine Tamils are confused. Some think how can I keep Tamil nationalism under My3!

    Well, no one is going to force any change. Although both options are geared to eliminate Tamil nationalism.

    The option Tamils have is hard option under Mahinda or the soft option under My3.

    My3 will give you options such as embracing Sri Lankan nationalism in place of Tamil nationalism.

    I have in my mind how Mahinda will do it. It will not at all be pleasant. With him you will not have any options.

    He reckons Ravana’s ex General is bad news, And he agrees with with what TNA dissident party leader Ponna says.

    This is bad news for Siva’s stats ,considering the recent defection of 7 TNA members who are at the coal face trying to help the Dalits in the north.

    I thank the author for his well written and logical article. In 2005 the Tamils helped in creating a monster by refraining from voting as another monster (Praba) had decreed.

    Now there is no Praba to enforce his will on you. Your vote together with ours can save this country. The man who falls in to the well has to come our by reversing his path through the well mouth. Let us do it together. I implore you to act according to your conscience and avenge the death of your people.

    Let us put our collective miseries to an end by voting for My3. He may not be an angel. But he woild be the lesser evil by far.

    This is going to be a historical PE – the last chance to make a democratic choice. The
    TNA is silent on the basis that the majority voters must vote for the CC and not give
    any excuse on the lines MRs version of Diaspora conspiracy etc.

    The Tamils voted SF with good intentions and given circumstances. They must repeat it
    to bring about a CHANGE. TNA will have a space in MS Diary Date 23-4-15 – the 2 year
    NATIONAL GOVT. It is only a trial but has space for the TNA to place their requirements.

    Ampara 456,942. Trinco. 251,690. Puttalam 540,706. An 80% turn-out must be
    the target, provided the EC keeps the Forces in their Camps on the 8th Jany. Gota

    “kadanpaddaar Negnncham paula kalankinnaan illakai veanthan” This the sentence our Chandrikathasan quoting from Kampan. “Like the mind of the loan borrower Lanka’s leader lamented”. Minimum for two novelties these words are frequently cited in Tamils writings. 1) The way Kampan phrase it in Tamils, so sweet, charming, mesmerizing, enchanting….. 2).Intricate, delicate, sensitive, sharp shooting metaphor used. ……..Ravana had lost many things but the loss, in a sense, not permanent. So Kampan is not describing the situation as one trapped without no escape nor a deathbed status of final journey of no comeback. Describing the war victory of Ram or cornering Ravana with the idea of wiping him is not what Kampan’s hero, the Ram’s objective. Ram came there to salvage Ravana. Ravana had many ways to redeem him. There was no time it was too late for him, during the war, to do that. As the most Shiva devote ever appeared on the earth, Ravana’s death would be relieving him from the cycle of birth and death, a situation the many souls search for their entire life. Had anytime Ravana let Sita go during the war, Ram might have dropped his arms and walked into Ravana’s palace and made peace with him, with restoring his sovereignty and his respect. The greedy king could not let Sita to go. There was always many ways to rectify the situation of a “Kadan Paddar”. “Kadan Paddar” usually lives a life above and beyond their means, they are examples of greediness. They do not like to readjust the normality or the reality. Though lament a lot, underneath it, it is only empty. Kampan’s object was proving Ram is the Avatar of Krishna. He no way let Ram be interpreted as merciless, invading, and equally greedy to Ranavana, an earthly king. So he used the “Kadan Paddaar” situation to Ravana’s status.

    As I said earlier, in the every corner of the, educated and uneducated, civilized and uncivilized, advanced and backward Tamils societies, these phrases many times get repeated, appropriately or inappropriately. So, our Chandrikathasan could not avoid hearing it. Then to show as he is the only one certified by Bharathi to understand the Tamil epics, he cited the Ravana’s example to our Dutugamunu. But Hambantota king is not in that situation. Basically the hyena-opposition, encircling the King and looking for ways tear him alive and eat him up. Nothing is new in that. That is the Sinhala Intellectuals customs… culture, way of doing. JR did it to Sirimavo; Premadasa did it to JR; King did it to CBK, and now it is King’s turn. If the CC gang wins, revenge will be honored and upheld. It is not a “kandan Paddar” situation. Here the worry is not exaggerated or fake. It is real. It is a death or live war!

    Further, without knowing what Ramayana is, in an out of contextual way, he brought the Ramayan here. So he declared MY3 as the “A devoted Brother (Vibeeshana) (Maithri?) deserted ranks and joined Rama. “Now, in the chaos of the wedding ceremony, he has lost the Bridegroom! Alas! He is missing Ram. If the Maithiri is Vibeeshana, where is the Ram? Who is going fight with Ravana? Well, let us help Chandrikathasan on this; we can crown Ranil as the Ram, but I do not have to tell who the Sita is, Ravana put in prison. Then who is the dedicated servant of Sita? It is the one burned the whole Lanka for Ravana having her imprisoned. I don’t mean, our chandrikathan is a real Hanuman, but in the epic this buffoon wrote, he is the only suitable character for that, because Hanuman a Tamil clown, worked hard to destroy other Dravidian races for his beloved princes Sita. Apparently it’s all turning award, as day by more and more Vibeeshanas leaving Gemunu. At the start Sita brought out Maithiri Vibeeshana only. Latter, Champika Vibeeshana, Athurilia Vibeeshana, Fonseka Vibeeshana, Richad Vibeeshana, Hakeem Vibeeshana all have come and put together the camp. Udaya Gammanpila Vibeeshana came and went back to Gamunu. Fonseka could do that too. It appears, with more and Vibeeshanas come in to the camp, it looks like a palace of Frank Lucas, Pablo Escobar
    , Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán but, certainly is not of Ram. Now, even if we want to resque Chandrikathasan, It has become impossible.

    Our poor Chandrikathasan had poor understanding of abstract idea. He is, like a programmed robot by Chandrika, venturing around like a headless chicken.

    How could a pair of eyes that couldn’t see an elephant standing in front of it can an ant crawling on the land? Last time he blasted out others with Bharathi’s quotes not knowing who Bharathi is and for what he stands. This Chandrikathasan brought Bharathi to substantiate his slavery to Chandrika.
    Watch what he is doing this time. He likes to show who Kampan is. I admire Kampan. I respect his work. But there is some problem in showing his examples, in political debate. His son was decapitated by the king counting him as an unfaithful. Kampan works, even at the superiority, Tamils refused to allow him debut (to be inaugurated) it in Tamil Nadu. Kampan became popular with in the last 100 years because of Tamils works went to printing and people started to appreciate, only for the creative writing, going beyond the political message in that. But when DMK started its campaign recently, Annaththurai has written a complete book called Kamparasam, censuring Kampan and his book, extremily influential in Tamil World. Because of that influence, Chilampoo once again gained the leadership. I have to stress that I beside the competition for the superiority between the Chilampoo and Ramayan, whatever the poor Chandrikathasan touches is something against Tamils and ultimate dirt. But still we can see how much Chandrikathasan can grasp something out of this book, Ramayana. Last time he quoted that Bharati has declared people doesn’t understand the epics. Watch his example on this.
    As the way he could not understand what Bharati was trying say or Kampan was trying to say, he could not understand what TNPF was saying. Read this “In this medley emerges the thoughtless suggestion, best is for Tamils not to vote. ” That not is not what so far suggested. No body want to bother what is best or worst in this. We will come to this again and try to explain what the Tamils are telling about the election. (I doubt this comedian can grasp it)

    Here read this. This wild fox claimed in the heading, “Boycott Idea Crushed To Shambles”. After that is he saying those grapes are really, really sour? “But merely refraining from a boycott wouldn’t do. In the next 10 days they have to more than double the strength of those committed as of today. “ who has committed what? Upcountry Tamil always voted, they will vote this time too. Is that all?

    We have clearly explained in many places in the CT that there is no connection to 2005 election and the Mullivaaikkaal or 1956, or 1958, or 1961 or 1977 or 1983. His is the example of “Vidiya vidiya Ramar kathai, Vidignchaal Ramar cheethaikku enna murai”(a guy who was staying awake in the whole night to listen to the Ram’s holy story. In the morning he asked other audiences how Ram and Sita were connected. What is there relationship between in the holy story?)

    TNA boycotted the Eastern province election. TNA boycotted the Eastern PSC so that baboon Pillaiyan became CM. SJV not just boycotted the Constitutional committee, latter he even resigned KKS seat. Chandrikathasan is telling these all are Tamils’ mistakes from 1930s. As a man outside of the real negotiations that FP, TULF and TNA did in the past, he put the Banda-Chelva, Dudley – Chelva Pacts are as Tamils disagreements with his masters and mistresses. If we leave aside his outright denial of the Tamils’ good faith, we understand when Tamils do Boycott or Satyagraha they all are active actions against the enemy or the opponent. But What TNPF or we are saying is far beyond the understanding of the puny brain of the Chandrikathasan. He just is calling it as bare “boycott” as he is programed him by the Sinhala intellectuals. He doesn’t care to hear what the call is for. It is only for just a normal, natural behavior. It has nothing to do with the active or even passive protest, nor a boycott. Abstaining from something is not boycotting. Consider the story of these two women the way they are bringing up their children.

    “Once upon a time there was playground in a land and kids go and play in that. There were two Families; one had a fence dividing the ground and other was three block away. The playground was common, but they two were separate families. In the evening, the far away family mother will come to pick up her kids who were playing in the ground with the close by family kids. After that both families’ kids go for dinner, homework…….the evening duty in their relevant homes. One day the far away family mother fell little bit behind. Everybody was waiting for her near the playground. As soon she came by, the close by family mother said “come along guys, time for the dinner, homework…. “. The nearby family kids went to the table. The faraway family kids misunderstood the call and wanted to go and sit on the table. Then their mother said to them, “my guys, this is not your dinner, for ours first we have to go home. Until that we cannot have our dinner” My question here is “Is this faraway family mother is worlds’ most ruthless terrorist for a reason of asking her children to boycott the dinner.” Say the nearby family is rich and faraway family was poor, and her kids had seen the food on table was very colorful and lot of aroma flavor, but when those kids went home, the poor family’s dinner was cold and sour, so the kids blamed the mother for not letting them to dine at the rich family’s home. Should the poor mother have to contend that her action was wrong? What is wrong with it the way she was bringing her children? Sri Lanka can have anything, how that is affecting the poor mother. Further, in that rich house, there was servant boy, who cannot play with freedom with the rich and the poor kids, but he will be given to taste the rich food. The next day after the poor kids missed the rich dinner, the servant boy who met the poor kids near the playground (, at the house he worked,) laughed at the poor kids saying they didn’t had the chance to eat the food that tested so well. If the poor kids says, mommy he cannot play with us, but even he is eating that rich food, why should not we? Then should the mother buy this argument? Chandrikathasan … Karuna… Deva.. getting perks for their service, what is that has to do with the Tamils?

    Mallaiyuran,
    Good luck in your campaign for Rajapaksa to win the election and making Tamils to boycott the election. You have time till January 8th 2015. Who is going to pay you after January 8th?

        CHANAKYAN: Unfortunately, it is the type of logic(!) Mallaiyuran propagates that has been the driving force of Tamil nationalism in practice (and not the more reasoned “Tamil politics should not be reduced to an anti-Douglas politics” essay you wrote in ponguthamiz.com a few years ago). Any advance you make with Tamil nationalism will be hijacked by lunatics and fascists — history has shown that in the massacres carried out in our names by our people in Anuradhapura and Aranthalawa.

          Sigma,
          Do you think there is a pay master for this type of lunatics?

            I don’t see why lunatics need paymasters, they can be autonomous.

              Seems like Mallaiyuran is an autonomous lunatic.

    Mr.Sivathasan,

    I agree with some of your thoughts, and disagree with others. Sorry that I do not have the time to elaborate.

    Let me point out a few of your thoughts which I disagree with.

    The third sentence of your article is: “Ironically the very creator of this misfortune was destroyed by its own creation.”

    I am surprised that you make such a profound mistake. Velupillai Prabhakaran was destroyed by the efforts of the West, Japan, India, and weapons supplied by China and others. Mahinda would not have been able to destroy the LTTE and VP, without the crackdown on the LTTE in North America, Europe; Indian Naval blockade; Western and Indian intelligence.

    Under the section heading, “Figures are Eloquent”, you write: “For this act of default we paid in May 2009 with 40,000 lives.”

    This is another profound error on your part. Even if Mahinda or another Sinhala Buddhist racist were elected with the help of Tamil votes, they would murder 40 thousand or more Tamil civilians, without any hesitation.

    BTW, I did not support various fascist, terrorist and malevolent acts by Velupillai Prabhakaran. Responsibility for such acts are shared by Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran, Karuna, Pillaiyan and many other LTTE leaders.
