Re-Grouping LTTE: “What Action Member States Would Take If Confronted With Threat Of Re-Grouping Terror Networks In Their Countries”: Asks Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka asks states what action they would take if confronted with the threat of re-grouping terror networks in their countries

Exercising the right to reply on statements made regarding the arrest and detention of Balendran Jeyakumari, and the incidents in Killinochchi last week, Sri Lanka asked the member states at the 25th Session of the Human Rights Council on 26 March 2014 how their respective countries would react if there was a credible threat of re-grouping terror networks and if they would remain passive bystanders or take proactive action to ensure terror networks were kept at bay.

LTTE 1Detailing the circumstances which led to the arrest of Jeyakumari, Sri Lanka, said the performance of this investigative action “should not be portrayed as selective, singling out of these individuals” and deplored attempts on the part of “interested parties to stigmatise the action of law enforcement authorities as an infringement when they were merely carrying out duties for purposes of national security”. Sri Lanka also stated that as there was “credible evidence of resurgence and revival of LTTE activity in Sri Lanka, masquerading these activities in the garb of human rights, impeded the legitimate exercise of protecting the citizens of the country from terrorism and protecting their right to life”.

Elaborating on the arrest, Sri Lanka pointed out that the recovery of an arms cache, evidence on attempts to reorganise and rearm the terrorist outfit, LTTE, and a shooting incident involving a LTTE terrorist named K. P. Selvanayagam a.k.a Gobi who was found in the residence of Jeyakumari and who had shot at Police officials and escaped, still remains at large. It was also noted that Jeyakumari’s daughter who was also at the scene, had been handed over to Probation and Childcare Services following magisterial orders.

Referring to the detention of Ruki Fernando and Father Praveen, after they were found to be visiting the scene of the crime and the residence of Gobi, the fleeing suspect, Sri Lanka observed that it provided sufficient need for an investigation to be launched into the nature of their involvement of these individuals with the main suspect. They were both released after due judicial process.

While appealing to the member states not to impede Sri Lanka’s quest to ensure that no resurgence of terrorism takes place in the country by misinformation and the wrongful portrayal and misrepresentation of facts, Sri Lanka reiterated that it would continue to maintain vigilance in the face of credible evidence on the resurgence of terrorist activities by the LTTE and would not be deterred in its bid to safeguard its citizens from the scourge of terrorism.

    Pathological liars keep going again, and again, and again!

    The more they lie, the more the inconsistencies that can be found by honest people of the world: Remember the inconsistent lies of Mahinda, his secretary and the UN rep on troop numbers in the North!

    Mass murderers that the Sri Lankan leaders are can go on with their lies until they have absolutely no credibility left: They are not far from it.

    Let the UN get on with the business of punishing the war criminals, mass- murders and genocidiares of Sri Lanka and bring justice to long suffering Tamils.

    Let the UN usher in peace, democracy and equitable solution to the ethnic problem that has plagued the island since independence in 1948.

              Because both Tamils and their Sinhala/Buddhist brethren are simply stupid. The British lump all stupids together in one stupid country which they created for the serene joy of Sinhala/Buddhist.

      Thiru,

      “Pathological liars”? True.

      And you are one of them. You would spin the story a thosand times.

      Your only intention is Tamil Ealam. The utopic dream of all Tamil ethno-nationalist racists.

      Your concern for war crimes is so totally fake. In fact, you do not give a damn about innocent lives or child soldiers.

      For you this is just a means to reach Tamil Ealam. You are a “HR Con-Master”.

      Cheers!

    The counter question:

    Why is the government mollycoddling terrorist outfits like the Bodu Bala Sena and the Sinhala Ravaya? They are already organised to create religious dissension in Sri Lanka.

      Dr.Rajasingham Narendran,
      I can show you a number of real terrorist outfits that the government either mollycoddle or ignore for a long time. Everyone knows that Wahhabi and Salafi groups organised by ACJU had killed and maimed many Sufi Muslims and burned over 150 of their houses and damaged many of their mosques throughout the country. Pitty, I haven’t seen you name ACJU as a ‘terrorist outfit’.

      In my opinion, BBS in particular understand the existential challenges Sinhala Buddhists in Sri Lanka are facing today. As I see it, BBS conducts an awareness campaign for Sinhala Buddhists to avoid a future bloodbath that may arise as a result of Wahhabi action as happening in many a country where they have become the majority. BBS lectures may be a kind of harangue which is quite acceptable to Buddhists. In fact, I consider it a repetition of the famous ‘Panadura wadaya’ that brought Col Olcott to Sri Lanka.

      SR and RB highlights unfair and unreasonable activities that affect Sinhala Buddhists. Dubious Law college examination results is just one of them. Using virgin forest reserve to settle Muslims is another. What must be mentioned however is, not one person had been killed or maimed by their action to date. So, why do you want to categorize BBS and etc as ‘terrorist outfits’?

        Dear Banda,

        I have no objections to all extremist outfits being banned, including the Muslim ones you mention, after above board court proceedings. The question again is why the government has not prosecuted them under the PTA?

        I have demanded for long that there should be laws against hate speech and actions.

        Further, why have members of the BBS including those garbed in yellow robes, who have been seen and captured on video, participating in vandalism and acts of terror not been prosecuted yet? Why hasn’t the yellow robed one leading the BBS not being arrested for threatening that he will physically tear apart a Muslim cabinet minister? Isn’t it as bad as threatening to blow anyone with a bomb or a suicide bomber.

        If there are suspicions about the law college admissions, let someone who is skilled to do so and can be trusted by everyone, conduct an inquiry and recommend remedies. The only thing I know for a fact that Muslims are taking to higher education in much larger numbers than before and hence they are likely to be enter institutions of higher learning in larger numbers. What makes me wary is that the same sort of game was played against the Tamils when the original standardisation scheme was introduced. Further, why should the Sinhala Ravaya led by yellow robed men, be involved
        In leading these protests? Have they taken up the baton from Cyril Mathew? Is it because the Minister of Justice is a Muslim. Is every minister from a minority community to be suspected of interfering and sabotaging a system in favour of his community? Is this what the Sinhala Ministers do too? If this is case, if so, let employ some suddas to be our President and Ministers!

        Let what is sauce for the gander be sauce for the goose too?

          Dr.Rajasingham Narendran,
          Let me first take up your question, “Why hasn’t the yellow robed one leading the BBS not being arrested for threatening that he will physically tear apart a Muslim cabinet minister”.

          As I see it, you have grabbed the wrong end of the stick here. If asked a traditional Sinhala teacher whether the phrase means what you think, he’ll answer negative. I am not a Sinhala scholar, but I know enough Sinhala idioms and colloquial expressions through life experience to say that it does not mean what you say.

          What the monk said in verbatim is: “parayawa patta paturugahanawa”. Its colloquial expression used in villages in harangue like speeches and to warn minors when parents and elders are very annoyed.

          Now, to translate it word by word first, let me first say ‘paraya’ is a noun and ‘parayawa’ is the subjective noun. It’s the short term for ‘paradeshakkaraya’ – meaning a one who is castigated as belong to a foreign country. True enough, ‘paturugahanawa’ means peeling or slicing to pieces completely. “patta” means small pieces. The expression when taken together however is a ‘gami wahara’, or a village colloquial that give out a different meaning to when taken each word separately.

          Actually, we villages very seldom use the word ‘paturugahanawa’ for a tree let alone a man. I have never come across one saying “parayawa patta paturugahanawa” or “parayawa patta paturugahanda onaa” even in short stories if he/she wanted to cut him into pieces.

          When one points a man and says “patta paturugahanawa”, it literally means he will be taken apart through criticism. In the case of children it is a threat to reprimand him. I have heard villages often threaten their children saying “paturugahanada onaa” or “patta paturugahanawa makawa mama” in worse cases, but they have never even bothered to touch them.

          So, to expect the government to prosecute the monk for what he said is absurd. It would be thrown out of court as the joke of the century. But a racists can always translate it the way he likes just the way Thambiah tried to rewrite our history.

          Having said that, I fully agree with you that not just hate speeches but race and religion based parties should have been banned during the British Raj’s time. If the British had done that the first Sinhala-Tamil riot would never have taken place in Nawalapitiya in 1939. Our history doesn’t say we had race riots or religious riots. We fought to expel the plunderers and invaders not non -Buddhists. That was the trait of One God followers. What more proof for our religious harmony than our line of ‘Wadduga’ kings who were Tamils and whose wives remained Hindus.

          Division based on race and religion has been the master plan by the British Raj to control us ever since they stepped into our country. British didn’t defeat us at war. They used the race card to divide our last kingdom and capitulate it. Master racists are their descendants. When a single Bangladesh was killed in East Ham, London by arsonists in 1970s, skinheads marched to streets to promote it by shouting ‘Enoch, Enoch, one down and million to go’. And Enoch Powel is a white supremacist whereas Cyril Mathew is a defender of Buddhists and Buddhism. Anyway, those were the days that average English openly displayed their prejudices against coloureds. I myself have seen shop windows that said ‘NO DOGS, NO CATS and NO BLACKS’ in London. But I have never seen any prosecution against those advertisers. Today, its bigots that rule there. I hear it’s a regular habit in the UK for BNP thugs to write degrading graffiti on mosque walls. Few show piece court cases are there to show culprits are punished but such cases are very few and far between.

          Anyway, I agree with you that not just hate speeches but race and religion based parties should be banned. As for your question on why BBS is not prosecuted, the answer I suppose is the same reason why ACJU was not prosecuted for all that religious harassment, arson, vandalism and etc they are doing against their own minority sect.

    “Re-Grouping LTTE: “What Action Member States Would Take If Confronted With Threat Of Re-Grouping Terror Networks In Their Countries”: Asks Sri Lanka”

    This is very simple. Member States can take following Action/s
    1. Ban all the media and Start a “humanitarian operation” like in Srilanka and kill everybody including Children and civilians.
    2. Select some Laptop Journalists and send to the areas to report the war affairs and others can write patriotic stories while in the A/C rooms.
    3. Electronic and other media’s should start praising “Humanitarian operation while organizing live debates. State head/President should be able to bang his chest by both hands in public gathering saying first Mawbima, second mawbima, thired Mawbima and so on and last also Mawbima.
    4. There should be a special arrangements for Gold recovered in battle field and to bring them safely to the presidents house. (State heads should not be worried about the accountability of such Assets as no Patriotic person will ever questioned about those Assets)
    5. Member States should create many Patriotic Movements to help the Humanitarian Operation and if they lacks of such Patriots they can Import them from Srilanka.(anybody who is spending public funds more than 100,000 Rs.as electricity bill can be considered as Patriot)
    6. While the Humanitarian operation going on Member States should hold all the elections throughout the year while changing the constitution the way the head of the States needs.
    7. Brother of the State Head can Order weapons including MIG’s at the high price because nobody wants be a Deshadrohiya by questioning such purchases.
    8. Those Member States should find a suitable name for their killer forces like “Rana Viruwo” in Srilanka.`
    9. Those member countries should find a way of getting blessed for their Ranaviru forces and if they lack of such priests they can Order Srilankan boss to supply them as Srilanka has plenty of them like BBS, Rawana Balaya, Sinhala Rawaya, Nil Manel Movement etc.
    10. Head of the Member State should be able to deny bluntly any atrocities done by his Ranaviru forces.
    11. Heads of Member States should consult Srilankan War hero, if they are uncertain about how to conduct a War affairs.
    12. Heads of Member States should find a way to Jail the Military command after the war.
    13. Arrange to celebrate War Victory every month if possible like Srilanka.
    14. If there is no actual terrorists, member states can create a fake terrorists movements and arrest all the human rights activists and others charging harboring unidentified terrorist irrespective of their ages.
    List is very long and and if the Heads of the member states need more classified information, they can consult an American citizen, Grease Piya.

        For the same reasons as to why Premadasa and MR funded VP.

        Whats wrong with toilet cleaning?

    Sri Lanka should not allow any resurrection of LTTE.

    Sri Lanka should put behind bars all those Tamil politicians tacitly involved in resurrecting the armed struggle. That should include all those TNA politicians like Ananthi(wife of former LTTE leader Eililan),Sritharan MP,and other Northern Provincial Council members like Sivajilingam. That list should also include Kuthirai Kajendran and Gajendrakumar Pnnambalam.

    Journalist Jeyaraj has described in a recent article how Ananthi’s husband Elilan killed in cold blood a young mother with two children who was trying to escape from the battle ground. Jeyaraj lists various other atrocities committed by Elilan. Now this LTTE killer’s wife has become a champion human rights defender.

    The only way to prevent the resurgence of the LTTE is to have a very strong democratic government with a very strong regional council working hand in hand to up lift the population in a transparent manner. Where there is no pandering and no unfair demands given into for political expediency as happened in the past. A strong ethical military with officers who understand and practice ethical standards while maintaining a strong presence in the north and east. These are the hall marks of what should be done. BUT they are unpalatable to both sides. The Ealimist wants to exploit whatever space they are given to achieve their selfish goals while the thuggish louts who pass off Sinhala leaders violate every norm of good governance that ever existed. And we ask the above question like utter buffoons. If there is ever a resurgence of the LTTE it will be squarely our own damn fault collectively.

    Yes Thiru the US has solved all the problems in world. UN is bunch of pen pushers writing volumes and volumes of useless documents that none of the powerful countries give a hoot to. What has UN achieved for the Palestinians. How many resolutions has the UN brought against Israel. You are being very naïve or other. Being an LTTE lover one can understand your disillusionment.

      “UN is bunch of pen pushers writing volumes and volumes of useless documents that none of the powerful countries give a hoot to.”

      Since becoming the only powerful country in this world Sri Lanka should take the initiative (under MR, the most powerful leadership)to shake the UN and reconstruct in its own Dharmishta image.

      Being a resident of US you have tremendous advantage in helping MR. Recommend MR to sack all his pen pushing diplomats serving at UN missions.

      I wish you well.
