Rajapaksa State Media Slays CBK; Calls Her “Mother Of All Liars” For Championing Religious Freedom

The state controlled media turned its hate-filled guns on former President Chandrika Kumaratunga for daring to champion the cause of religious freedom yesterday, referring to her as the “Mother of All Liars” and claimed she had ‘joined hands with the enemy” to discredit Sri Lanka ahead of the UNHRC.

In his most recent editorial Editor of the state-run Daily News Rajpal Abeynayake called Kumaratunga an “odious, intemperate, country hating ex-President that has palpably joined hands with the enemy, and there is nothing less that can be said about Ms. Chandrika Kumaratunga’s so called apolitical effort to focus via some organization that styles itself as SAPRI, on an interfaith effort to address “attacks on churches”.

In their attack against Kumaratunaga, the Rajapaksa Administration’s mouthpiece says “Nobody has been eliminated for speaking out, and the gross resort to fabrication on this score makes it beyond clear that the garrulous ex-President’s motives are anything but apolitical these days.” Adding further Abeynayake says “However, the ploy is clear. The modus operandi is to shut the voice of the free thinking and patriotic forces first. The way to do this is to tag anything that is said against people such as Kumaratunga and their fabrications ‘state attacks on Human Rights defenders.”

It is unclear why the Daily News Editor feels the cause of religious freedom is equated to “country hating”.

Except that in his Editorial of January 22, the Rajapaksa Government’s state media – the Daily News again run by Abeynayake justified the attacks on Christian Churches claiming that the Buddhists taking the law into their hands are a persecuted people and that the Sinhala majority in Sri Lanka are often not permitted to do anything tangible about aggressive proselytization and the barely legal establishment of churches and other places of religious worship.

That  editorial titled, THE ONGOING GENOCIDE AGAINST THE SINHALESE Editor of the state controlled Daily News says people besieged in this way can easily be paranoid, or they can overreact and it is suspected that the entire idea is precisely to get them to go over the top, so that this fact can be used against their further persecution as well, taking on the role of apologist for marauding saffron mobs perpetrating violence against minority religious communities.

“The Sinhalese majority is in the unenviable position of not being able to defend any sustained undermining of its culture, and way of life. There is no freedom of expression for the Sinhalese if it means pointing out that their values are being usurped, or that there are systematic unethical conversions for instance,” the editorial says.

Rajapal Abeynayake is appointed by President Mahinda Rajapaksa as the Editor of the Daily News. Rajapaksa is also the Leader of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party and it was Kumaratunga’s father that was the founder leader of the SLFP. The Bandaranaike family led the SLFP since its inception in 1953 until the retirement of President Kumaratunge in 2005. It is unclear whether the SLFP, the main constituent party in the ruling UPFA alliance has sanctioned the State Media to attack its former leader or whether Abeynayake is merely carrying out instructions given to him by President Mahinda Rajapaksa. Once again, the Rajapaksa Administration should indicate if as with other state run newspapers under other regimes around the world, the voice of the Daily News is a reflection of the policies and perceptions of the ruling Government, and if not, the SLFP or the President should demand an apology or resignation from Abeynayake for his putrid abuse of a former SLFP President of Sri Lanka.

    However I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to CBK , we do not know if she is sincere or political motivated or has an hidden agenda, but she has notably shown some interest and have voiced her disgust against the BBS lately,which am disappointed to admit none of our Muslim Politicians in the Government has expressed to date , especially one man I even hate to mention by name is Azwar he is a real shame on the whole community ..

      In The Name Of Humanity
      Yes of course. CBK is politically motivated and has a hidden agenda. like someone commented here, maybe she wants to buy another Prince Andrew type of castle. Remember, not only Putha, but Duva also needs one. Also don’t forget how she ripped the country left right and centre with her bankrupt deals like selling Airlanka to the Emiratis and other hanky panky deals where she sold the countrys silver for a song. Beware of greeks bearing gifts.She will sell your nose under the pretext of bringing about communal harmony for you and your clan.

        If we’re on the topic of “selling” sri lanka, you’ll find that the Rajapakses are committing worse: the only reason you aren’t hearing about most of their deals is because they’re still in power.

        Amazing how many people like throwing rocks from glass houses.

          If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian.

          The Buddha died a Jain- he starved his body to death like ChandraGupta Maurya 1 at karnataka.

          CBK and Rajapassa are of the same breed Sinhala Mahanama Buddhist Racist.

          They not only go on Sil sundays and Kill Mondays but sell the silver for petty cash and blame the Suddha.

          India has many Buddhist in almost every state. In 2300 years how many do you have even by conviction?? Almost none due to Sinhala Mahanama Buddhist Racism!! (^O^)

    Thank you CT ,you are a very accommodating and the only source where people can easily and freely express their sorrows.

    With Gratitude to CT,from a heart broken Muslim and who is extremely disappointed with the Rich able Muslims all over the world (including Sri lanka)but mostly the rich Muslim countries – the last thing I would expect is not even sighs from these rich Muslim nations if we are ever attacked God forbid -like UAE they will be more interested in their investments ,it is all about money and greed the Arab nations are about even with all that petrol dollars.

    Do not test God’s patience in ignoring your duty towards your fellow Muslims …

        It is, in name.

        People like you (judging by your comments) are an interesting lot. Whenever a minority issue comes up, you tell the Muslims to get lost back to Saudi. The minute they then say something along the lines of what In The Name of Humanity said, you quickly jump on the “why why? arent y’all sri lankan now? bloody traitors!” bandwagon.

        Make up your mind. Dealing with bigots is one matter, dealing with multiple personality bigots is another.

    A special message To Muslims ,there is a dangerous extremely anti Muslim group connected to a dangerous extremist faction in Dehiwala area close to The Attediya Mosque which was stormed lately
    ,headed by a certain individual , he also is noted to fabricate lies against some Muslims whom he has personal grudge with and use his network of three wheel drivers and Internet and other sources to broadcast lies and tarnish these innocent people , so if anyone have received such emails of fabrications please update …

    Muslims Living in attediya area especially close to the Mosque in question ,should be very careful and keep in close touch with each other ,it is a extremely dangerous area for Muslims to live in.

    Borlesgamuwa and Piliyandala should be avoided 100%

      “it is a extremely dangerous area for Muslims to live in.” agree with you that the middle east has become a very dangerous area for muslims to live in especially syria and lebanon.The world has been very slow to react to the violence there.It is almost as if they don’t mind muslims butchering each other up and also to one day grab the oil bestowed on them by allah.

      they say chandrika likes to take a ‘adiyak’ in the night like my bassunne when i was in srilanka who would always after a hard days work will tell me ‘than adiyak thaala hondata budhiyagannawa’.Even now in his late seventies he is still working after the daily ‘adiyak’.

      It is strange for a srilankan woman to do that.I wonder whether it is due to sirima having an “adiyak” when she was pregnant with chandrika.Then chandrika would have got the taste of the ‘adiyak” guzzling away.

        Shanker,

        DJ or now christened Dayan Silva was following in her foot steps to be like the noble french.It’s the romance of bread and wine.

        BTW. It,s the born in lanka aged 2 and now french citizens who are working as maggots changing the script of how they came to be sinhalese and buddhist even during european days- they have invaded the universities with MR chit- fortunately they don’t get the humor of the country they operate in.;)

    From the comments I see that most people are happy that at least CBK took a stand to protect Buddhism from vultures? The SAPRI initiative RELIGIOUS TOLERANCE has the blessings of the MAHA Sangha of the three Nikayas, the clergy from Christianity, Islam and HIndu. The Government should be happy that a person with a stature has come forward to save the spirit of the Buddhist philosophy of Avihinsa..The effort of CBK if allowed to progress will save the country from being labelled as a pariah State in the forthcoming Geneva resolution.

      From everything I see on CT. The Burwa Sinhalese are unable to accept that CBK and total family are the “mother of all race/religious genocide in Lanka”
      She went further like the mother and put the “thonduwa” on nice guy superstar Vijaya to Be.

      Sinhalese have no balls or are they all like this family is the million dollar question.

      what a lot of bollocks!
      one must be raving mad or outright stupid to come up with that kind of trash.
      cbk is only playing a political game. If it served her to side with the likes of BBS or ravana balakaya, she would go for it with closed eyes. She was never hesitant to take decisions for her political advantage (coalition with jvp, dissolving Ranil’s government etc. the list is quite long). In short, no right-minded person ought to ever agree a CBK political comeback, which would be a disaster, worse than the rajapaksas….

    Chandrika was a liar. Rajapaksa is a fraud but, nevertheless CBK was the greatest liar that walked the face of this earth ever!!
    Mrs B died and went to heaven( if that is possible) god took her on a tour around heaven. She noticed thousands of clocks.she asked him why. He said there was a clock for every one on earth,and if they ever lied the clock moves a second. Mrs B then asked him to show her Chandrika’s clock. He said that Jesus was using it as a ceiling fan.as it was spinning around that fast.

    Don’t waste your valuable space by writing on Daily News Editor Rajpal Abeynayake. He was the editor of Observer in 2006 but was kicked out after eight months. Then went to Thilanga to start Lakbima’s English version LNews and wrote against the President.
    His rubbish was too much in the final weekend before the 2010 January Presidential election. Poor Thilnga only saw Rajpal’s article against the President only after the paper was printed. Thilanga did not send that weekend’s paper to the market fearing he would be in trouble.
    When Thilanga finally kicked out Rajpal, he went to the President and begged a job. He has now mastered the art of licking.
