Rajapaksa Wants To Meet Tamils And Muslims

Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa has indicated his interest in meeting representatives of the main two minority communities, sources said.

Rajapaksa

According to sources, Rajapaksa wants a platform to discuss the current political situation in the country with them, and a tentative meeting is scheduled for next month between the representatives of both communities, including leaders of political parties, and Rajapaksa, who has been largely unpopular in the face of both minority communities.

Sources said that Rajapaksa is seeking their support in his efforts to further strengthen his position in the political spectrum. “The Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna which is indirectly led by Rajapaksa is hoping to contest the local government elections later this year, and it is very likely that during the meetings, this will also be discussed,” sources said.

Rajapaksa largely lost his popularity among the Muslim community following the Aluthgama carnage in 2014 allegedly carried out by the Bodu Bala Sena, which was a movement with the support of Gotabaya Rajapaksa, the then defence secretary and brother of Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Meanwhile, last week, Tamil National Alliance Leader R. Sampanthan castigated the present government under President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and said that the Tamil community was losing patience and was also disappointed by the Yahapalanaya Government, as they were treating the Tamils very similar to how Rajapaksa’s government treated his community.

    Mr Ex President

    You had the opportunity to unite this country after the war by recognizing & accepting everybody born in SL who may belong to ethnic minorities & with different religious beliefs as Sri Lankans but you were carried away by ‘nationalistic’ greatness. If you are thinking of doing things differently next time, it’s too late. SL can’t afford to take a another chance with you as a leader. So why don’t you enjoy your retirement away from politics with the ill gotten wealth?

      I believe that former President Mahinda Rajapaksa deserves a second chance. Tamils must know the truth, the LTTE was defeated by the world. The US, China, India, Pakistan, Israel and other countries helped Sri Lanka to defeat the LTTE in 2009. However, the West and India are pointing the finger at Mahinda Rajapaksas to use Tamils to achieve the Western and Indian interests. Sadly Tamil politicians are following the West and India blindly. Tamil leaders follow the West and India without a question. Tamils listened to New Delhi and killed their fellow countrymen. Then they listened to the West and killed Tamils, Muslims, Sinhalese and Indians. Time has come for Tamil leaders to move forward to use the West and New Delhi.

        Michael Moore the famous filmmaker said before the US election that if Trump were to be elected, he would be the last US President. It’s such a profound prediction as what we have seen in the first 4 weeks, the damage he has done to the reputation of US, doesn’t bare thinking what he would do in 4 years. For the same reason, Mahinda Rajapakse too should not be given a second chance because both of them are capable of doing irreparable damage to their respective countries.

      Raj,

      You are dead right. MR had ample opportunities to unite the people after the war ended and instead he took part in victory Marches, which went on far too long. He should have told the people that the war is over and separatism is ruled out and we are one people. now. He could have implemented the 13A amend
      -ment with much ease and by now, peace would have been established in the country and the country would have moved forward by now.

    After winning the war against LTTE and after winning the presidential election and the general election with a two third majority, Mahinda Rajapakshe had enough opportunity to solve the National problem and become a true Statesman but unfortunately he (along with his brother Gotabaya Rajapakshe) selected the option of following the path of a few Sinhala-Buddhist Ultra-Nationalist Racists and Pseudo-Patriots, thinking that by whipping up Ultra-Nationalism and Sinhala Patriotism among the majority Sinhala-Buddhists, and by threatening and further suppressing the Minorities (Tamils and Muslims) he can rule the country for ever as the hero of the Majority (Sinhala-Buddhists).

    At least now, the former President Mahinda Rajapakshe should realize his mistake and put the country and the people (irrespective of race/religion) before everything else and help support in solving the National problem once and for all. At least now he should keep away from the Ultra-Nationalist Racists Wimal Weerawansa, Udaya Gammanpilla, and Dinesh Guanwardena, the three bankrupt politicians and his brother Gotabaya Rajapakshe who ruined the former President Mahinda Rajapakshe and made him an anti-minority leader.

      Was MR the dumb teenager when he surrounded himself with Wimal Weerawansa, Udaya Gammanpilla, and Dinesh Guanwardena, Gotabaya Rajapakshe, Dayan, all those members of armed forces who committed war crimes, corrupt members of state institutions, ……….. ?

      “Rajapaksa Wants To Meet Tamils And Muslims”

      Why?

      What is in it for him, his family, his extended family, his cronies,?
      What is in it for Dayan?

    This man is no means reliable- we must not underestimate the devious nature of Rajapakshe and Peretha thatuwa people.

    And tamil and muslim srilankens will never trust him again.

    Gone were the days, Rajapakshe was given enough time to show his affinity to all srilankens equally.
    However from what he has been doing getting into temples across the country further prove his previous secret plans building BBS or the like radical buddhist organisations were the facts.

    Please give us all srilankens a break Mr former president even if your greediness to lanken politics seem not guiding you well since you were declared to be defeated by significant majority forces coming from all walks in this country.

      Leelawathie:

      It is not just the Rajapaksas. It has become a trite for Sinhala leaders to promise for the sake of promising – but not to honour those promises. Each and everyone one of them are rascals and stand discredited totally. They understand the vulnerability of the Tamils and exploit and have done so since independence.

      True to their nature, the Tamils have always been trusting the wolves in sheep’s clothing only to realise that these wolves display their true nature once they are in power. Going from co-sponsoring to declare a totally somersaulting opposite stand by Maithiri and Ranil are but the latest and it will not be the last.

      While the Tamils have had the envious position of “kingmakers” they have hardly enjoyed the fruits of such an envious position. In the ensuing period, and there will be scramble from both sides to muster the Tamils and Muslim votes as these are going to determine the next ruler. Whether they vote or do not cast their votes at all, their action will be a significant factor and the Sinhalese leaders only realise this too well. They will make their rounds with all the promises this world can offer and that will be limitless. The Sinhalese proved amply that they are a discredited race that even written agreements are not worth even the paper they are written on. In short, they have proved to be scums. What else would one call them when even written promises to a world body mean nothing to them.

      I hope the Tamils at least do not get duped this time around. There should be no secret pacts as even Sirisena has shown his colours. All electoral pacts/understanding should be out in the open so that their race understand what their leaders are promising the Tamils.NO SECRET PACTS AT ALL. It should also be underwritten by some foreign governments, preferably by the security council five. Such extreme measures are required to drive some sense into the Sinhalese. This is not to say they will screw even this one up but they will think twice before doing that.

      Isn’t it about time that the Tamils wake up instead of continuing to be cheated again and again. You don’t need a crystal ball to know that whoever takes the crown will without even the slightest hesitation screw the Tamils up. Let the journey of confrontational politics start with this election unless someone can show that consensus politics had ever worked.

        what matters is the lesser evil- right in a country almost every 2nd is pro-corrupted and abusive cultures we dont even talk much about the issues you have already added above. We perfectly know, even becoming clear day by day, Rajaakshes as a defeated mad dog, has been on a race to return to power for the continuance of his tyranic agendas. He is the only leader who had the chance to change the constitution as required covering a solution for all folks in this country. He had a parliament with 2/3 mandate, but the pervous man was intoxicated by his own power and let idiots to play tricks on him and became into being an another Gadafi to the locals. All was changed by MID of 2014. Saddest reality is like on a crank set of a bicycle, almost everything is interconnected in a society of our nature. Cultural and religious values guide the folks, leaving truths and recognitions aside. Even doctors, engineers, professors or the like university educated locals are second to the superstitous powers being played by close ones to the politicians of the society. We cant compare it with their wise counterparts in the west, since, the west would not realize as to why for exmaple lankens fail to grasp minorities being offered equal powers as is the case in the UK, or almost many countries in Europe. Even if the past had been significantly xenophobic, by to date, even germans have learnt to tolerate their own folks. Of course there are tiny extremist groups that would always stand against the migrants in Europe and America, but that has lot to do with nature of the human beings.

    This power hungry MP should go and meet the constituency he was elected.

    He wanted his name to be included in the school syllabus to betrayed the old kings.

    Take a back seat, accept the defeat,just as an MP from exe prez to.work out how we can develop the country,creat jobs ,work out the ways to stop women going to volatile countries force to leave the children home ,ends up in wrong hands.

    How to unite the communities,tell ypur buddies to stop cheating the people and the system.
    Be an example,let the orther corrupt buddies to be true patriotics.if you do good for the country you will be in the history.

    The war was won collectively that’s the reality,you may think all credits to you.but behind the scene Sonia and the west don’t forget.

      My fellow notherners, we are all the same, just one blood type is flowing in our body vessels – not many would stand against you being considered as srilankens, but extremists led by former LEADER seems to be playing all various tricks being servile to any players by today, we should be ashamed to have voted for a man with that low level mentality – allowing the represetation of a nation with the highest literacy rate in south asia (over 90%).

      Former mafia only little different to Zimbawian tyranist (Mugabe currently in his early 90years) king was reported to have tied over 40 talishments on his body (where you may just guess- including on his penis) upon his trick player’s advice before leaving his home where he momentarily stays – was read in reliable news in which former first lady has requested so called ROYAL ASTROLOGIST though an illiterate from the south to recheck all of the collection – talishments. Each of the talishments was contained a chit “saying – please obey to your rajakeeya dhaiwakchaya- even if those talishments were not prepared by him”. The kind of superstitiously fallen king to have tried for a next term you may now realize if even if have a little brain.

      Yatharupa a program being telecasted weekly on SLTV makes it very clear mostly with highly educated panels and audiences. There came to know all the sorcery tricks being played to former Prez and even continue today making all fools among the vulnerable are just being caught by them, even if one would not want categorically say those invisible forces would not exist, but todays levels of trick players to fool the nation have come up to all appalling levels, so that the school going children are being cheated by giving them pens with recited mantra in order to get them through their school tests, Olevels and Alevels.
      Asked why only those who learnt hard for those exams and got through as consequence, those met ones stay unanswered as always, since those powers are said to be playing a role in their life.

      “IF you do shake hands with the Great Liberator, please count your fingers afterwards.”

      If he promises an utopia a promised land or sort to the Tamils and Muslims should they reject his goodwill gesture even if they knew the possibility of not only losing their fingers, but like in the past whole body?

      If Tamils and Muslims caught him by his b***s do you think his heart and mind would follow, assuming he has a heart?

    Hi Desperate Sinhalaya , I do agree ,but am one who always believe everyone deserve a second chance in life as much as I and you may ,none of us are saints. But as the saying goes trust in God but make sure you tie your Camel.

    Even if it means I stand alone ,I will strongly say no if he is to make deals with Muslim Politicians except Azath Sally and not forgetting Religious Scholars, had enough from both,they are like twins. It will cost the community hell if he does ,both are good for nothing and for sure it will be the poorer folks votes that will abused ,as we all are aware that almost 70% of the Muslims are poor folks and about 10% live under poverty ,thanks for the exclusive lip services offered while the purses are held tightly by our greedy rich ,getting richer using all the unfair deroutes of political clouts handed down by their beloved politician friends and among family . He needs to call upon Azath Sally and talk directly and sign a transparent MOU ,which is also acceptable by The Sinhalese ,mainly Buddhist which guarantees their status in this nation
    I have totally given up on this government ,it seems they are in a hurry to make the maximum and bolt by 2020. The game is same ,different players ,and finally ,if Mr.Rajapakshe is not agreeable for federalization ,share power and economy with all the Citizens ,as for me even if he offers the moon in one hand of The Muslim and Sun in the other hand of The Tamils , they should reject any discussion. This is the best opportunity and time, he has a new political party we can begin the brand new Journey of power and economy sharing from here. And gentlemen like Navin Dissanayake should resign ,it is not worth his dignity to be with this government.
    All those who ate against Feralism do not want to share power with people because it takes away the age old mechanism of enslaving the people and Federalism also provides equal opportunities to all via economy sharing ,they do not want that ,their hearts are filled with greed .The minorities need to be careful with both the government as well as the opposition. Api the appi pama nai. We have only us for ourselves.

      No, Nitzen, we cant agree with the kind of men again. It is a total betrayal no doubt about that.

      The conditioned mind sets of the people have further been supporting Rajapakshe and his survival, however, the intoxicated politicians of Rajapakshe nature must never be underestimated.
      This is clear to the minorities and some portions among sinhala community.

      Today, we the ones who sent Rajaakshes home attack as loudly as we can the ruling men, for one reason that promises made on serving the justice is not yet achieved by them. However, as anyone would study it closely, Rajapakshe and his culprits have along been making every efforts to anything and everyhting to topple the ruliing govt.
      We have clear evidences proving the gravity of harm being done by direct mediation of Rajapakshe – some various awarness programmes make this very clear by today. However as said above, our folks – the makjority behave as if they have been fed with kirimati,-clay, not pulsing the gravity of former govt s low level acts.

    Before August 2005 also Rajapakse Reps and Prabaharn’s Reps met and Rajapaksas won.
    Between Late Lakshman Kadirgamar and Mahinda Rajapakse who did sincere work to take the

Even pacts and provisions focusing on killings extra judicial anything were got passed but never a word was held important in terms of equal treatments to minority folks, though his speeches for popularity were held in tamil… just show off as his entourages had been.
      Even costs claimed for week long entourages are still to be paid by his secretariat yet, all is not that louded by the rulers to protect the get-together however, the harm being done by his mediation is really huge tearing all levels,

    Late in 2014 the then President MR canvased votes. He went north and distributed some jewels “recovered” by his soldiers. The list of recipients of about twenty were judiciously chosen by Devananda.

    MR then came out with the logic “Vote for me – known devil is better than an unknown devil”. People dismissed this as a sick joke.

    MR may come up with such logics eg. he suggested devolution via the infamous Panchyat system. If he is serious he must come out with what he is willing to offer.

    Yahapalanaya is bit slow but suggests me it’s thorough. Major criticism it gets for not punishing you and your cronies.

    We as Sri Lankans, know the priorities, so we worry less about bond-scam and worry more about racial tensions which, is not there now. You created a change in innocent Buddhist people’s mindset to an extent that let them believe that their blood is of an animal and extraordinary to other similar Sri Lankans that they are still sticking around their vehicles making themselves look abnormals.

    Now even worse you shame the very same section of the people you once made specials by trying to attach yourself once again with not-so-special section of the people in your term once was = All for powers.

    So you don’t have principles.

    Besides Sambandan, only the West’s darling Buddy Samare is impatient until Vellalas get their Homeland..

    Dr Ranil who signed the deeds to make it happen , is in damage control, after Diaspora Mahendran robbed the Yahapalana Central Bank.

    The latest one at the Srilankan ,which Dr Ranil’s one time enforcer Galleon from Bloemendhal has pulled off , has in fact pissed off the Yahapalana President yet again.

    Now the Y Prez is promising more Commissions, Not the UNP type of course…

    Here are some computations for the Yahapalana suckers who are not up to speed.

    UNP management accountants forecasted USD 205 Million loss , iff SL got the 4 A 350 s and drove them for 12 years.

    That is a” colossal ” loss according to the Finance Ministry bean counters .

    So Galleon ticked off to pay the Lease Company USD 175 Million and cancel the orders for the 4 the A350s..

    Smart thinking Isn’t it?.

    Did Srilankan sign the contract with a Lease Company or Airbus?..And who got the first payment of USD 17 Million from Galleon’s Yahapalana Kitty.

    Now Dr Ranil has no control of even his Muslim Buddy Kabir whom Batalanda himself put to ,clean up Srilankan.

    Has Sambandan got a better alternative than meeting the great man, who bent over backwards to give him 13 A Plus after the new Vellala Hero Pirahaparan departed.

    And brushed aside the great man’s peas several times and declared ” Just Leave the Muslims to Me ” when the then Government wanted to make a deal which will appeal to all.

    Wonder whether Singapore Mahendran is a member of Right Wing Suren Faction or the Left Wing Rudra Faction or an Independent ?.

      So Galleon ticked off to pay the Lease Company USD 175 Million and cancel the orders for the 4 the A350s..

      News paper says even the minister Jayarathne who said fire to the Maithripala sirisena’s election booth in Gampola, brought the proposal to the Cabinet.. but, he had not readt it or he knew that there was no scuh deal about Air bus coming. anyway, they wanted to pay Rs 175 million. Cabinet, including Maithripala sirisena OKed it but they did not know what was happening.

      Sp bot the top officlas and ministers were in the dark or they ganed to rob the country ?

      KAbir Hasim has told it dierdctly to the president and Ranil did not like it.

      Ranil wickrmasinghe was upset because another scandle by his ministers would come out.

      Ranil is a lawyer and wanna be economist and a manager who destroy the country..

        Dear Native,

        I thought the Diaspora gifted their 24k Thalis to Velupillai before they left And paid instalments as well in USD, BP, Kronars and even Swiss francs.

        For giving them the opportunity to become Western Citizens.

        Now they are getting a ROI which an investment in FB or Google at their inception wouldn’t have given them.

        And in fact they are waiting to bail out Batalanda Ranil and the UNP as well, as soon as Sambandan gets the Vellala Homeland.

          Now the people who were robbed by LTTE want their Thalis, Gold, Cash returned. Gota and his goons looted the lot from VP’s Fort Knox in Vanni.

          It was an un-taxed, un-earned windfall income for the war criminal and his firing squad.

          Can you persuade your chief executioner to repay all that he and his goons looted just after the slaughter?

          According to one unofficial estimate the total value of the loot if distributed among the population of this island each person would have received Rs 20,000,000 more than enough to keep this island going another 2,500 years.

    Dear D.S., But being honest to ourselves the middle class and poor Muslims,Tamils and Sinhalese put together, do we have much choices ? Look how shameful This man Ranil has turn to be ? Where has his ethics gone to ? I want to be clear I have nothing against MS. But unfortunate he has become a puppet on a string manipulate d by Ranil . Look at the looting of the bonds , we must have consiecence ,just because the previous regime is being under investigation for looting it does not give the present the right to do so. This government needs to be kicked out sooner the better , let MS ,kick the UNP out and form his own government then . but again there are plenty of the like s among his men too. That is why I believe we need a new sincere political party ,and people like Navin Dissanayake must resign and join Azath Sally’s group ,I trust him and respect him 100%.
    What is happening today is day light roberry and shameful ,The media is not exposing it. MS. Must sack the government or reshuffle completely and please for the sake of the people ,send home the home for the age politicians, and please reinstate Navin as the Tourism Minister before worse happens. And unless you ban fake NGOS operating under disguise of religion ,attack on religious minority will not stop. Wake up. Understand why halal was under attack .becateful of what you eat. It is a huge farce

    “Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa has indicated his interest in meeting representatives of the main two minority communities, sources said.”

    Saro” you need to add more Names to your list ..
    When will the real victims in the nation realise and wakeup from their slumber ? That is the Middle Class and the poor, who are really the deciding vote block. We need a new political party ,we need power and Economic Sharing Constituency, we need to be able to shun aside race &Religion and come together to stop the looting of the nation in all forms , we need to have the right to appoint all the commissions ,not the government, what a freaking joke it is to let the government appoint commissions whose members are all politicians ,what a conflict of interest. And further we need to have one Single body of Public trustees to handle all the government Tenders &name it general tender board . remove all the duties on imported goods ,except on goods and food grown and made in Sri Lanka and enforce GST according to the items from luxury to essentials accordingly.

    Other wise you will never stop smuggling and the Country will never recover. If there is no implementation of Federal goverence implemented by the present government in tango , I strongly advice people who really beleive in justice &love the Country not to vote as a principal or vote for Azath Sally’s Alliance.

    First he as leader of the country at that time should accept responsibility for the attacks on Muslims and other minorities and than apologise from them if he wants any least amount of support from them.

    Ex LTTE commander Karuna Amman says Sambandan is whipping up racism by his a TNA’s unreasonable demand for a vellala Hmeland even in the East.

    Karuna sys his people in the East are only interested in living in peace and as equals with the rest ( I guess he means Vellalas in the main ) in their traditional homelands

    Not in separate Federal Homelands with vellalas from Colombo in control.

    He says the threats of Sambandan and his Vellala mates about a another war . if their demands are not met is all bunkum.

    And I believe Karuna Amman.

    How many Vellalas joined the LTTE and died in the battle field.

    Karuna says Vellala TNA wouldn’t have a clue about the War, because they ran away to foreign land and returned only after Velupillai passed.

    Karuna Amman set up the , TUFF because his people in the East are fed up with the TNA.

    And the TUFF wants discussions with the great majority of the inhabitants to present their case and get their views and agreements openly in a diplomatic manner.

    I think the great man is wasting his time calling Sambandan and Abraham for talks.

    He should instead take Karuna Amman and get him to address those mammoth rallies of the JO and let the great inhabitant majority listen to TUFF demands.

    And let Mangala Samare present the TNA demands to the inhabitants with Dr Batalanda Ranil , Sambnadan and Abraham .

    There seem to be a powerful and dangerous Politician in the present government who calls the shots behind the scene. A religious fanatic from a religious fanatic family line ,well connected to Fanatic hard line international religious NGOS.
    The UNP leadership’S mishandling of Ministerial appointments of bringing in members rejected by the people via the national list will be the final downfall of the government and the end of the UNP. So it will be goodbye and grobr.
    Another year and you will see what this hate filled minister will do ,the next aluthgama is in the pipe line and it may be bloodier than MR’ orchestrated one .This one will have the blessings of Trump .
    God bless The Holy Father !
