Reply To Thisuri In “Response To Mahinda Rajapaksa’s Grievance On Government Media Repression”

By Thivanka Amarakoon

It seems like you do not have a clear idea about what democracy is, let me explain what it is, it is “a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives” that is the meaning of so called Democracy. Please tell me, does this present parliament reflect the democratic requirements of all Sri Lankans? Any country with democracy has to fulfill the aspirations of whole population and in doing so has the right to talk, hear & know about what is happening. It doesn’t matter whether he or she is or was a current leader or a past leader. When considering your statements none of them prove that you believe that the Ex- President promoted free and fair elections and the establishing of democracy in a country that couldn’t dream of such a democratic transformation prior to 19th May 2009.

Thisuri Wanniarachchi in your state of dementia you have naively focused on the past 4 years, whereby as you highlight the Sri Lankan society was deprived of any kind of freedom, be it thought, movement or gathering. During the period of your adulthood you have conveniently forgotten that there was also a period of dark, despicable and undemocratic behavior by the very same UNP Yahaplanaya regime members that you now support and raise your vocal cords for. A refreshing is in order as like you there are those who have forgotten the period of July 1983 or ‘Black July’ which brought about the scourges of racism and terrorism to the entire country. Along with the rise of LTTE terrorism and racism post Black July, the suppression of democratic gathering in 1989 of the Southerners saw one of the bloodiest reprisal by the then UNP Yahapalanya regime members against the bright youth of this country. The mournful reference that you make in terms of the response to protest to water is only but a drop of water considering the rivers of blood that washed across this country which was caused by the UNP Yahapalanya regime members during these periods (i.e.1983 and 1989). Thisuri your rebuttal toward the Ex-President on the topic of democratic lack of freedom of assembly and the present government’s approach is matter of hysteria, “You see, this government happens to encourage the democratic freedom of assembly, an act that was met with real bullets during your tenure, killing innocent civilians whose demands were as simple as access to clean water”. Little do you know that the then government which the current President was also a Cabinet Minister was part of the team that made tangible progress in providing access to pipe borne water supply to households increasing it from 35 percent in 2010 to 60 percent by 2017. This was to be done by increasing the consumer base by 175,000 connections annually. Therefore, similar to the Ex-President the current President too takes unequivocally responsible for the good, bad and ugly actions and thus cannot be absolved from all forms of just and unjust behavior because now he has changed his color from a once Blue to now a Green member of government.

Furthermore, its astonishing to note that you also do not seem to know that the Ex-President had received 5.7Mn votes from the Sri Lankan voters, while the incumbent President Maithripala Sirisena had received 6.2Mn, therefore, I personally fail to understand how you calculated the whole 22.0 Mn population as against the Ex-President. This would mean that you are ignorant or unaware of the age limit of universal suffrage in order to participate in the democratic election process, which you seem to take pride in given the US allegiance (which incidentally was not made available to the USA even after the Emancipation Act of 1863, taking it nearly 100 years to recognize the rights of the ‘Black Americans’) or you may be having your own American version of democracy which you hope to infect Sri Lanka with, given that it was disclosed recently by RT News that the US government had approved a funding line of USD 585 million for such propaganda activity during 2015 (RT News, 18th November 2016).

It is also astonishing to find that Thisuri may have been in hibernation when this very nice, democratic, assembly loving Yahapalanya regime was out beating university students, Buddhist priest’s, and Disabled Army soldiers. I know you are not up to date with these incidents, as you seem to be preoccupied displacing historic facts and the bloodshed caused by the UNP Yahapalanya regime. Did you know that it was these very same army personnel that were humiliated by the adopting of the Co-sponsored UN resolution and subsequently assaulted were those who in pure abnegation sacrificed their bodies and souls to bring an end to the racism and ethnic conflict which were caused by the incumbent members of the UNP Yahapalanya regime? Where were you after having witnessed these incidents which occurred in Sri Lanka? Yet you seem to be extremely displeased at Ex President, Mahinda Rajapaksa, for having saved this country from the scourges of terrorism and racism but take pride in highlighting the lack of media freedom during his tenure. If there was a lack of press freedom it was only claimed by the US/Western funded ‘good governance’s activist, individuals and institutions.

Thisuri you claim that you are democratic, a free thinker, and also espouse the character of a good governance activist. If TV Derana telecasted Namal’s simple incident in their news line why does that trouble you? Shouldn’t that be the democratic right of the private TV station to telecast what they chose fit to do? Does Rupavahini or ITN stop its telecasting of the UNP Yahapalanya regimes propaganda programs, despite its pledge not to abuse such public institutions? Did not see you ever raise questions about that abuse of freedom with those pro government media institutions which fabricate the truth? You seem to have one obvious agenda, which is not a bad thing, as that too is your democratic right, given that you live off such cannibalistic journalism which also gives rise and causality to inflate your deflating ego. Well, I really think that with such cannibalistic skills and overtures you should advice the incumbent government on matters of ethnic reconciliation as there is a lacuna and your profile seem to have a natural fit which if put to use could be the answer to dropping one form of cannibalism for another and could turn out to be beneficial to the country. Given the extraordinary skills displayed in mapping the minds of two politicians. Your allegation that TV Derana is promoting the Rajapaksha family is unreasonable is indeed bemusing. Therefore, it is your democratic right to take revenge and display such hate based actions against a private TV station? Is this justified by you a so called self professed democracy and good governance activist? Is revenge to all those loyal to the Ex-President the modus operandi in a society that you claim is now more democratic post 8th January 2015?

Indeed Thisuri, Mahinda is not one of you (us) and he does not represent the shallow values displayed by a few Sri Lankans who want to see Sri Lanka lose its national mindset and local entrepreneurial orientation, yes you are spot on, Mahinda is not one of you in that regard. When the Ex-President was in power the country had a clear vision and a comprehensive national economic plan to develop this nation to be an international competitor, standing shoulder to shoulder with the best, which is glaringly missing today. This country has now fallen prey to a ruthless aristocratic class and school cult that is not satisfied until Sri Lanka is torn apart and its economic resources redistributed to unscrupulous Western interest that have benefited from the blood money of LTTE sympathizers. The current President Prime Minister and Finance Minister are pawns of this ring of thieves while the larger divisive scheme is yet to unfold, but that too is now evident to the country.

Yes Thisuri, this government has a long way to go, and that road is going to get longer given the rise of the patriotic people of this country. If the plan is to achieve artificial progress by selling national assets then we as a country would have to rise in order to protect what is ours, that’s for sure. The “Central Bank Bond Robbery” issue as an another example, of how the government has shown what they really are, and the mindset of making progress for the rich, while taxing the poor, similar to the Sheriff of Nottingham. And that too no- sooner they came into power. It’s been two years since they came into power, during this period they have done only thing that is to blame the previous government, about their debt and high cost borrowings, but ironically what is obvious is that the governments own published debt and interest cost data have shown that the debt burden increased year on year by 11.5 percent to 78.7 percent from 70.6 percent in 2014. While the interest cost of borrowing too has doubled. If you dispute this facts kindly open the budget speech or the Central Bank Annual report of 2015 and read for yourself, as you seem to be reading into many other non-relevant subject matters, than the one that calls for true investigative journalism.

    Dear Thivanka,
    I have just one question to ask you:
    Why is it that Mahinda Rajapaksa uses Colombo Telegraph to preach on media freedom,(and CT allows him to do so) when he himself blocked it when he was in power?
    How the mighty have fallen!

            Lankens are caught by devil. Now the consequences we face. Rulers of the day too cant do magics or wonders turning the situation into a fully functional civilized society.
            Besides, expecting it to happen that way was not what i believe people thought in the change – they just wanted Rajaakshes and their thugs be away from active politics.

            Even borns fools, would nt let abused again and again. That is what we experienced on the 8th Jan 2015.

      What kind of clear vision are you refering here ?

      THERE HAD BEEN A CLEAR VISION ANY THUGS TO ACHIEVE WHAT EVER THEY THOUGHT IS RIGHT.
      EVEN IF WE ARE NOT SATISFIED WITH THE SPEED OF CURRENT GOVERNANCE TOWARDS THE GOOD GOVERANNCE; WE STILL RESPECT THE CURRENT DUO MORE THAN RAJAPAKSHE THUGS.

      The manner you the stupid idiots behave will force current men to go radically against you in the days to come there by they will surely expose more about the gravity of high profile abuses MR himself mastered during his last 5 years alone: Wait and see, coming colour is no means good for them.
      Those vaging the tail today, – Aluthgamage or others, will have no safter ground even if their tails would reamin vaging to escape being convicted.

      Bond scam is being investigated, to even talk about that toda shoudl be a joke. This is the very first govt who gavethat much of courage to let them reveal allmost everything. With much more to come in the next days, you will see how it will end up.

      We the folks work for anti-Thugs will succeed for sure.

      Alone the facts related to that MOND in Batticalo and the scenes behind the incident- the way it has been become to alarming levels have never been reported by the very senders (Hiru and Derana) while all others related to Bond scam or anything else being added to misguide the very same nation predominatly filled with MAXES; SACHOS, SUMANASKARAS OR the like THANT THISURIS, NATIVE VADDAS; BEN HURLINGS; AMARAYASA; SRILALS; GAMINIS, SRILAMALS et al.

      Who would share it with the [Edited out] of current writer – he would not see the young doctoral student has made it clearly. The doctoral student Thisuri in her younger age on, seems to be respecting the basice than the [Edited out] such as Thivanka is thousands of miles away from even getting to knwo what is right. All these men were sadly brainwashed the way – some Kattadiyas such Fensui promotors of the like have been upto. Asiri Valmapuri man has manipulated all the guillable poor mind sets of this country. WHo on the earth believe all the lies being spread by him to grab the last ct of the poor of poor, making them believe about all being explained to them.
      Singapore, Germany, China are building high rises not giving the highest place to the astrology. Even if those countries are sometimes affected by natural disasters, still stay firm because the technolgy has succeeded defeating all the unvisible forces being explained by any kind of men of the nature- Asiri or Galthanna witch man:
      The very same manner, Rajaakshe being fallen to the level of Royal Astrolger was fooled as no other leader of the region.
      Shameless bugger even today, cant see it right. His kith and kin are called for investigations for various kind of investigations- for all the allegations being levelled at them.
      By today, the majority of the nation are becoming aware the gravity of wastes that MR adminstration caused to create the current fate of the economy. More are well aware of as to why Joint opposition go against even so radically as Galthanne Witch man – in terms of some corruption being revealed by currentregime – it is just to be on good books, even if their blind and deaf mind sets were not awake during the last 5 years of MR regime.
      Aluthgamage the most abusive among the palhoru of Alibaba and 40 thieves have now sensed – leaving thoughts – ” we have made mistakes, but we have to correct them” – was issued by them this week, since there were high corruption charges begin mapped against him, due to the sums he is alleged to have collected to buy houses in LONDON – costing 1 million of sterling pounds. All thse will nto be ended easily until the clear cut evidences are on the table.
      So is with Basil Rajaakshe – the synonyme for the high corrutpoin – will have to face it within next years for sure.

      Thivanka,

      may I please remind as to why those 5.2 millions of the very same nation, that held him in altar – ended up defeated in previous elections ?

      There, the people never wanted to any kind of so called filthy spread devleopments, but basic human rights

      What one would understand by Basic Human rights:

      a) Not making roads and devleopment of the kind MR thugs are upto -but freedom of expressions – which is dore galala by now … if not you guys woudl not have been free to add your low level analyses this way.

      b) And people of this country wanted to see any violations to see lawful investigations. Today, we are still not that happy the way the justice is being served, but thousands time better than it had been prior to 8th Jan 2015.

      c) Today they dont boast about what they have achieved. The current duo have achieved so many things…. but MEDIA men still work for the thugs, since majority of this country are made fools by MEDIA mafias introduced by MR men.

      He must understand that Malaccan Kabaraya Jarapassa and his physcopathic family thieves clan did not save the country From LTTE Teras,
      But We, the Poor people Sacrificed with our Lives and our money.
      many of our Poors gave the lives to war when Mahendran Jarapassa’s living a posh life at the expense of public coffers.

      What we want is to get the sharks jailed by any means. No matter Thivankas or OTHERS, all these will even more corner all the high culprits.

    When Ranil Wickramasinghe was a powerful minister in the government:

    1982. That ultimate crime, the utmost shameful event that ever took place on this soil – burning down the Jafna library. Did he demand that culprits be brought before the law?

    1983. Watershed event in race relations. Innocent Tamils were butchered, property looted and burnt, hundreds of thousands fled to India (still languishing in refugee camps) Did he demand that culprits be brought before the law?

    1989. Deadly “bheeshanaya” . Nearly 60, 000 Sinhala youth (who cares?) caught and killed some burnt alive (including Wijeweera). Did he demand that culprits be brought before the law?

    He was a great proponent of many evil things that shaped the landscape of this country. Politicisatin of Civil service, Abolishing civil rights of Sirimavo, Cursed 1978 JR constitution, the referendum etc. etc. And the list goes on and on.

    His contributions to the present pathetic state of race relation and the polity are unmatched.

    Finally gods saved this country from his deadly agreement with Prabakaran.
    What would have been the level of blood letting and race relations in this country if that was in place today – if Rajapaksha did not appear in the scene?

    During the war he rediculed the armed forces, celbrated when the soldiers were massacred in thousnads. He led the only oppposition in the world, ever in history, that openly prayed for their own armed forces to lose. Upon gaining power in 2001 he passed on the names of all intelligence officers to LTTE – famous Millenium city maasccre. Upon gaining power in 2005 he ensured that all those who were engaged in defeating terrorism are brought before the public in handcuffs.

    He engineeered a number of parliamentary coups – creating internal divisons is his modus operandi. He approached Sarath Fonseka while he was in unifrom.

    The major thrust in his regime chnage agenda was creating hatred in the minds of minorities against Rajapaksha.

    Anton Balasinghaam dubbed him as ’20th Century Fox’
    In some sense even Prabakaran was a principled man than this dirty crook.

    His anti Chinese propaganda was his shrewdest plan to permanently disable the only support base to the Sinhala Buddhists in the international arena and keep the country away from receiving any considerations in loan repayments.

    Here we are talking about reconciliation, impunity, rule of law …with Ranil Wickramasinghe piloting the plane. (WITH FULL BLESSINGS OF OUR TAMIL AND MUSLIM BROTHERN)

    Let us wait and see where this plane is going to land.

      Hindian’s have been and will be the natural support base for Sinhala/Buddhists even though Siri Mao supported Pakistan in the terrible war against the Bangali people.

      If Hindians didn’t lend their whole-hearted support the war would still be continuing or this island would have become a partial colony of the US, and you would have had a thriving economy, prostituting your women and children, catering every need of the American, in and around their rest and recreation bases. You would have had a gainful employment by pimping your women and children.

      And don’t forget how Hindians changed the first resolution at the UNHRC in favour of this island.

    What was Thisuri writing about and what are you commenting on? I thought I had enough of silly donkeys like you. She was writing on what Rajapaksa had commented. By all means write whether the current regime of its failures, as Thisuri had rightly mentioned about it. This same monkey called Rajapaksa went to the UN to seek its help for misdeeds against SL people but we all know how he reacted when he had to face similar issues and questions but I applaud the intelligence of someone who knows how to separate the wheat from the chaff, unlike a donkey like you who likes to twist with his own tail.

    Interestingly, you are a slippery snake – very kindly evade the question, CT was blocked by MR’s regime but now he prostrates to CT to get hies views published.

    I don’t know how you bring up your children, and from what you write it looks almost pathetic but I am sure good parents will certainly endorse and welcome someone like Thisuri, if not for anything but at least for a better and brighter Sri Lanka. Keep it up Thisuri.

    To – Mr. Thivanka Amarakoon,

    Very true about the Crimes committed by the UNP. Since 1977 the UNP brought a whole new brand of barbarism to Sri Lankan politics. Most young people from the South, the Colombo coffee shop experts or the internet keyboard warriors, have no clue about what the UNP did back then. The sheer barbarism of 1983, 1987/89 is still vivid in my mind.

    That being said, the crimes committed by the Rajapaksa regime especially against the Tamil population is very real. Even Colombo-Telegraph was blocked by the MR regime. If the argument is, the UNP committed so many crimes therefore they have no right to point out the crimes committed by MR regime and vice-versa well Sri Lanka is truly doomed. Crimes committed by one group is NOT an excuse for another group.

    When will this finger-pointing end and true progress and reconciliation begin?

      Tell us about what had happened under Siri Mao (SLFP, LSSP, CP) in 1971 then of course between 19 November 2005 to 9 January 2015.

      Let’s not forget the role played by D. A. Rajapaksa in SLFP.

    Dear Mr. Thivanka Amarakoon,

    I’m not saying the present government is doing good, but they are doing the job better than previous government. Its quite clear that this country needs young & educated individuals to come into politics. Please don’t take journalism to dogs by pointing fingers like 2nd graders.

    Ms. Thisuri, has every right to publish her point of view about the previous government, just as much as you have by publishing your views.

    Act your damn age, seriously!

    Your truly,
    Justin Beiber.

    Thivanka Amarakoon, for a moment I thought you are the brother of Dr Mervyn Silva. You look alike and think alike. At least Mervyn changed his tune since the collapse of the MR Mafia government.
