Rishard Arrested As Nandasena Regime Cracks Down On Opposition Members

Under heavy pressure to deliver justice for the victims of the Easter Sunday bombings in April 2019, the Nandasena Gotabaya Rajapaksa regime made a pre-dawn arrest of former Leader of the All Ceylon Muslim Congress Rishard Bathiudeen on Saturday (24).

At 2.33AM on April 24, 2021, the ACMC Leader tweeted that the CID had been outside his residence since 1.30AM trying to arrest him without charge. “The CID has been standing outside my house in Boudhaloka Mawatha since 1.30 am today attempting to arrest me without a charge. They have already arrested my brother. I have been in Parliament, and have cooperated with all lawful authorities until now. This is unjust” Bathiudeen tweeted shortly before he was arrested.

At 5.30AM the Police Spokesman said the Bathiudeen brothers had been arrested under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) for aiding and abetting the Easter Sunday bombers.

The former Industries Minister’s brother Riyadh Bathiudeen was also arrested from his residence in Wellawatte late Friday (23).

The arrests come amidst the holy season of Ramadan, when Muslims are engaged in fasting and prayer. Rishard Bathiudeen was likely arrested shortly before Sahoor, the pre-sunrise meal taken by Muslims before they begin a 14 hour fast.

The Government of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa came under severe criticism from the head of the Catholic church in Sri Lanka no less, after the CID released Riyadh Bathiudeen on bail last year.

Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith has grown increasingly antagonistic towards the Rajapaksa Government he worked hard to usher into power, over its failure to bring the Easter Sunday attackers to book. The Cardinal was visibly enraged by the release of Riyadh Bathiudeen from CID custody in 2020, shortly before the enactment of the 20th Amendment to the Constitution. Since then, he has been publicly hinting at a conspiracy at the highest levels of the Government to conceal the identity of the ‘true masterminds’ of the Easter bombings. The Cardinal recently had to walk back his remarks about the attacks being politically motivated, and nothing to do with Islamic extremism – a direct swipe at the ruling Government that swept to power on the back of the attacks. Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith’s remarks have coincided with continuous allegations and exposes by opposition MPs about the true conspirators behind the Easter bombings, connections deep inside the Sri Lankan state security establishment.

For his most recent expose in Parliament, Opposition MP Harin Fernando was summoned to the CID. Sources told Colombo Telegraph that moves were afoot to arrest Fernando under the draconian Prevention of Terrorism Act which could see him jailed for six months without trial. Attorney Hejaaz Hizbullah was detained under the PTA for nearly a year and finally charged under a totally different law.

The Bathiudeens were investigated in connection with their ties to the Ibrahim family in particular. The wealthy Pettah spice trader whose two sons turned suicide bombers, was closely associated with many politicians. Bathiudeen, as Minister of Industries, allowed waste copper material available at a statutory corporation under his Ministry to be transported to the Ibrahim’s copper factory in Wellampitiya, police investigations found. Questions were raised at the time about whether copper originating at the Ministry of Industries had been used to create the bombs that were detonated on April 21, 2019.

However, for two years, CID investigations into the Bathuideen connection never went further. Bathiudeen has insisted that he and his family were innocent of wrongdoing. (By Chinthika De Silva

          Do not get excited, that justice is going to be done. This is a bogus drama being enacted to give an escape route to Cardinal Ranjith, a Rajapakse lackey, who is under pressure by his flock. He said that he will bring Catholics on the road if those behind the attack are not brought to justice by 21st April, but retracted it saying that it was not a hard and fast date and that he is willing to give time. Now Cardinal Ranjith will tell his flock that he is satisfied with the progress and not to agitate, another act of hoodwinking the public.

        The Sinhala “Aryans” were warned MANY TIMES by the Muslims, who protested these extremists, and even India (specifically 3 times) and the US warned them, but the Sinhala “Aryans” did sweet NOTHING to prevent this disaster. Looks like they were incompetent AND fooled. THEY could have prevented this, but chose not to.

        “There were many other missed warnings, experts say. The U.S. and India both had sent specific intelligence they picked up that attacks were being planned in Sri Lanka. But the president and prime minister at the time had been bickering and refused to share information with one another. The government also failed to keep the military informed.

        Since the Easter attacks, Sri Lanka has seen anti-Muslim riots. Mosques have been attacked. Many Muslims fear a continued backlash.” NPR

        I think there are a few misconceptions about “Arya” (Sanskrit). The original Prakrit word in “Ariya”. Its quite comical the Nazi Germans thought they were “Aryan”. That is hardly the case.

        Arya is not an ethnic group as its commonly thought. The person who has adopted the path set by the Buddha is an “Ariya”.

        Although given the Buddha was a Sinhala and he lived all his life in the island, all Aryans would have been Sinhala -> https://youtu.be/e8CDfXqoTBE

          Good. Long may Sinhalese people draw inspiration from such relations of History. At least there’s no hatred of other people than those identifying as “Sinhalese”.
          .
          I was tickled by a few facts. This young woman (speaking with a markedly British accent) has the same surname as me. I don’t know her but she will be revolted by the hate-filled tribalists who call themselves “Sinhalayo” today.
          .
          Healthy to see so much blame directed at Europeans – that won’t cause too much unrest in today’s context! However, they were going beyond rationality when ascribing perfection to the “Tripitaka”, of which I confess myself not well-educated. Also trying to prove that the Buddha spent his entire life in Sri Lanka relying on a 1940 paradox by the rightly revered Dr E.W. Adikaram was ridiculous. In the late 1960s, Dr Adikaram was drawing hundreds of people who listened in rapt attention to what he was saying. I was one of them. Never knew him personally.

          Still living off Pamunuwa Road, Maharagama is Adikaram’s (BTW, he had an earned PhD) favourite pupil, Emeritus Professor of Sanskrit, Mahinda Palihawadena, another great humanist.

            S.M,
            This charlatan cannot even get the date of Robert Knox’s capture right. He claims it was 1480,(before even the Portuguese arrival). How can we take such a fake seriously when he lectures us about earlier events. The girl is clueless too. She thinks Knox was a historian!

              Yes, oc, I looked at it again and, at one level, it was hilarious. The gullible girl would believe anything, and yes, “Dr Gamini Randeni” is probably a fake who tells these stories to “foreigners”.
              .
              Compared to much else that is floating around, it is harmless, but it can’t be allowed to pass for history. This is the problem with adherents of religion, their acceptance of magic, which would have amazed Gauthama Buddha himself.

    Heard that. Who said Lanka is not Myanmar. They only have Aung under house arrest. In Lanka the whole opposition will be targeted by Rajapaksas because they have run out of all options. Still expect Muslim countries to support them. Rajapaksas can fool Lankans all the time but not the world. As long Geneva is concerned real lawyers use different strategies. One is to break the accused /witness by different pressure tactics. Other is to do nothing but allow to make more and more mistakes. Then there is one specially for few who are arrogant but stupid. Do nothing but make them angry/mad and rest will fall into place. (like Trump). If anyone remember punch line from the movie “A Few Good Men”. Though I am sceptical about internal squabble, it is clear Gota is not taking the advise of other Rajapaksas.

      ” Though I am sceptical about internal squabble , it is clear Gota is
      not taking advice of other Rajapaksas.” In my view , that is not the
      case . The gang of Brothers and Sons , do have a clear vision and
      action plan . They are playing Good Bad and Ugly by choice . It
      is a strategy they are playing to mislead those that can be misled !
      Exactly like before , One controls the Executive , one,the legisleture
      the other one from outside while the puppies take care of the
      Rowdy craps craving for blood ! They are well trained in their
      art of jugglery ! Gota was posted where he is , with a purpose and
      they didn’t waste time about it , no matter what ! Muslim
      community , their businesses , their religion and their leaders are
      all targeted without any fear and shame about their behaviour .
      What they try to put in place is Fear Psychosis among the whole
      populace even though it looks communal . Other communities
      will soon face the same music .

        Dear S_M and Chiv:

        Prior to 2019, such a Extraordinary Gazette Notification was last issued in June 2013 by President MR.

        In 2019, such a notification was first issued on 22 April by prez Maithri Sirisena. It was again issued by Prez MS in August and October of 2019.

        What’s concerning is that such an Extraordinary Gazette Notification is being issued monthly since GR was elected President in November 2019. Since November 2019, on the monthly expiration of each such extraordinary gazette notification, it’s being reissued without fail. Covid-19 has been a guise.

        http://documents.gov.lk/en/exgazette.php
        (Search by Content using search term “Armed forces”).

        Obviously, GR is nothing without the military and even if those 6.9million who granted impunity to the crimes of the whole lot changed their minds!

        GR has himself created an extraordinarily volatile and degradative situation for the entire country, and needs the military to save him, his clan, and their accomplices of past crimes; we can logically deduct that these criminals evading law and justice live in fear and, as we see events unfolding, they are trying every avenue to safeguard their own freedom and survival.

    Comedy after two years of carnage, duo was arrested , released and now re arrested. With no evidence what so ever but based on commission , which again is not fully released to public. If Commission are our investigating agency and politician Ranjith is in charge of AG Dept , then why on earth we have, intelligence, CID, TID, special unit, AG, police and the rest. Lankans may buy it but not those foreigners who perished and their families. Remember what the brother of two victims told MS/RW , he will not rest , until the real master minds are exposed/punished.

    This was expected. The extremist sinhala buddhists know if they attack Muslims/Muslim politicians then the backlash would be minimal to non existent. For some reason Muslims today have become the Tamils of the early 2000s, where if you insult or treat them unfairly the other communities look on as if they deserve it.
    .
    But let’s look at Rishards case specifically; the 69 lakh buffalos claim he cut down a rain forrest, which isn’t true but the reality was he was heading a project to relocate those who were kicked out by the ltte. Compare this with the rajapakshes who have literally sold part of the sinharaja (currently being cleared to make way for infrastructure projects) to the chinese. Let’s also compare the claim of East Sunday attacks, we now know without a doubt that it was gota and co. who are the masterminds behind the attacks. We know that surely from how he and his cronies have tried to undermine and hide parts of the investigation.
    .
    The next target will be those who boldly expose the government like Harin and Anura.

      Rubbish . The amount of Muslims who were displaced from the north by the LTTE was around 60000-70000 the most and most them were from the Mannar region. Around 35000 and the rest from the other four northern districts. Far less than the amount of Tamils who are the indigenous population of the east , who were displaced by the Islamic home guards, Sinhalese settlers and Sri Lankan armed forces. Most Muslims have been allowed to return to the north and no one has stopped them. However, the story is different in the east, the displaced and ethnically cleansed Tamils have still not been allowed to return to their lands. Many of these now once ancient Tamil Hindu villages now converted to Muslim only villages and a no go zone for Tamils.

        He deliberately destroyed forests and in many instances Muslims had never lived there. There was an attempt to settle hundreds of thousands of out of area southern Muslims and even foreign Muslims in large parts of the north, especially in Mannar and in the Vanni ( Vavuniya/Mullaitheevu) by certain Islamic organizaton on the pretext of settling displaced Muslims , to deliberately Islamize large parts of the ancient Hindu Tamil north and create a huge Islamic homeland encompassing the east and large parts of the north from stolen Tamil. Many southern Islamic organizations, as well as many prominent southern Muslims, were even canvassing many western embassies with these fake statistics to pressurize the government to settle large number of foreign and out of area Muslims in the north. This Rishard was in the forefront and at that time he was the friend of the Rajajapakses, given carte blanche power to do anything to keep the Tamils of the north and east in check. Rabid Islamic anti Tamil Muslim politicians were given lots of power and very high positions to keep the Tamils of the north and east in check and these people used this power to the maximum.

          Not only to illegally acquire thousands of acres of private Tamil and state land, but to marginalize the Tamil majority, especially in the east and create further rifts between the local Tamil and Tamil Muslim population. Even some Buddhist monks living in the east , got alarmed at what was happening in the east and start to speak out. Large amount of funds were being provided for this Islamasitation project by certain countries that everyone. Mostly from western Asia and one from the South Asia too. 60000 Tamil Muslims were evicted and then after 20 years 300000 claim that they were evicted. What utter rubbish , No population can naturally grow like that in such a short time and 99% of these northern Muslims were very poor and poverty stricken. This includes Rishard’s famiy. Hardly owned any land and all now claim they own large amounts of land.

            Now look at the result. Large amount of Muslims in the island radicalized and behaving and acting like Arabs More Arab than the real Arabs. Sinhalese Buddhist Fascism has grown unchecked and now China has a stranglehold on the island and more or less at India’s southern doorstep. The LTTE kept this Sinhalese racism , Islamic radicalism in the north and east the deliberate fast growth of the Muslims in these areas in check. Other than the Rajiv assassination, due to the IPKF fiasco, the LTTE was never been anti India or even anti west. Now India and the west can reap the results of their stupid miscalculations and petty revenge

        youre talking out of your behind. There were Aerial photos that showed the land that was cleared and it was far away from a road bordering the Forrest. Granted he should never have gone near that area knowing how eager petty minded jealous sinhala buddhists are to cause problems with other communities and turn a blind eye when it’s their community. Your claim of destroying forests; what about when your master gota and co are now clearing forests for chinese infrastructure projects ??
        .
        What is “islamization” ? I think you people brains have begun rotting from all the extremist sinhala buddhist propaganda you’ll are exposed to. If planting some date trees mean that area have become Muslim then you’re extremist sinhala buddhist buddies must love living in those areas seeing how many of those rats are working as slaves for their Arab masters in the UAE.
        .
        As a sinhala buddhist don’t ever talk to a minority about “radicalisation”. 69 lake extremist sinhala buddhists who were radicalised by extremist buddhist monks were brainwashed into voting for a wannabe sad hitler to harm minorities and you’re shamelessly coming to talk to me about “radicalisation” ?

        “However, the story is different in the east, the displaced and ethnically cleansed Tamils have still not been allowed to return to their lands.”

        The Ethnic Cleansing of Muslims from the North by the LTTE in Oct. 1990, is a Well Known and Recorded Fact.

        But, the ethnic cleansing of the Tamils from the East is Totally different. Can you please provide Evidence for such ethnic cleansing such as

        1. Dates when such ethnic cleansing took place

        2. Names of affected villages and towns

        3. Number of people affected under 1 and 2 above

    Gotabaya and his government will completely wipe outing Terrorists and Terrorists Oriented Muslim from Sinhalese Aryans country, same as how Gotabaya completely wiped out LTTE and LTTE’s entire leadership. Dias-Poda and PEE-LAM barkers are dead dogs now. The whole world knows Sri Lanka belongs to Sinhalese Aryans of 74.9% of Sinhalese Aryans living in Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka Tamils (Who came from Tamil Nadu of India) 11.2%, Moors .2%, Indian Tamils who came from Tamil Nadu to Sri Lanka as Tea pluckers and for toilets cleaners 4.2% and others including Malays and Burgers 0.5%.

      The Sinhalese are not Aryans but largely descended from immigrant Tamil Dravidians from South India. Especially you. Coming from a so called Sinhalese caste or community that has a very recent low caste immigrant South Indian origin. Even the so called North Indian element is largely from what is Bengal,Odissha and these people are Indo Aryan speaking Dravidians, Dravidian Mongols or Dravidian Australoid. Stop posting rubbish like some brainwashed moron.

        Their logic is that because sinhalese on average are a slight shade lighter in appearance to the average tamil, that makes them ‘aryans’.
        I had this absurd explanation given to me when i asked a sinhalaya to explain how they are ‘aryans’.
        Its just as absurd as claiming denzel washington is an ‘aryan’ because he is not as dark as wesley snipes in skin tone.

        Rohan25, you say ‘The Sinhalese are not Aryans but largely descended from immigrant Tamil Dravidians from South India’.
        .
        Fine, the Sinhalese are Tamils.
        .
        Then you say the Sinhalese (ie Tamils) are occupying traditional Tamil homelands.
        .
        What is wrong with Tamils occupying Tamil homelands? You cannot have your cake and eat it.

          Yes but they are not Tamils anymore but another people , with a different language and identity that largely evolved from the Tamils , Therefore the state has no right colonize ancient Tamil lands in the island with outside Sinhalese to deliberately change the demography. Individual Sinhalese and others have every right to purchase land and live amongst Tamils ,just like the way the Tamils and Muslims do down south. The largely Anglo Saxon English originated and evolved from Germanic tribes from Europe. Does this mean they have right now to colonize German lands in Europe? Your arguments are silly

        There is no Aryan race. Aryan, Dravidian, etc. are just linguistic families. Not races. There is only one human race. South Asia has only 4 Dravidian languages – Thelungu, Kannada, Kerala, Tamil Nadu. All others including Sinhala are Aryan languages.

    Oh, yeah, the government desperately needs a new drama before Chinese Defence Minister’s visit next week, right?
    It is also highly likely the country will be locked down covering his visit.
    Re: the title of this article: Were the duo bribed or not bribed before the arrest?
    And, did the PCoI into the Easter Sunday Attack recommend this arrest? If not, why?

    • 19

      These arrests are only dramas.
      The meeting between Buddhist Kewatta Council and the President hints at the outcome of the SC’s decision to be favourable to China that coincides with the Chinese Defence Minister’s visit. What will the Council receive in exchange? Things like, official seal that Lord Buddha was born in India, Hiriwadunna is a distortion, etc.
      When we were children we were taught that poverty cannot be alleviated without foreign loans. But, when we are adults, we realize that it is not true.
      The notion that Sri Lanka cannot be developed without foreign investments is a lie.
      If you want investments, do it without infringing the country’s sovereignty and security.
      Since 2015, I have been against Port City. I never changed my stance.
      Port City is not just expanding the country’s territory. Granting exclusive territorial rights to China and Chinese Defence Minister’s visit tells a different story. Can China control non-Chinese war ships being deployed in international waters?
      The Rajapaksas and the Buddhist Kewatta Council should know that Sri Lanka is not their private property. Their greed will one day come back to haunt them.

        There was a tamil environmentalist in the jaffna peninsula back in 2010 who was exposing this.

          Humble
          In 2010? No, it can’t be. There was no talk about China in 2010.
          According to a “Supplementary Environmental Impact Assessment Report” published by the Department of Coast Conservation & Coastal Resource Management of Sri Lanka in 2015, only in April 2011, the China Communications & Construction Company (CCCC) has submitted an unsolicited proposal to build a Port City in Colombo.
          Until April 2011, there was no Chinese involvement.
          The Port City Agreement with China has been formally signed in 2014, in which the then Rajapaksa government and China have clearly agreed to work WITHIN THE EXISTING SRI LANKAN LAWS!!!!!!!
          Since 2015, I have been posting comments to CT against Port City, mostly about its impact on the coast and the environment.
          I even requested the then President Sirisena to do an assessment on the impact of Port City’s underwater bottom topography.
          So many environmentalists and nature lovers have also spoken/written on the environmental catastrophe and coastal erosion that could have been caused by constructing a man-made island across the naturally rough Indian Ocean.
          Sorry, I have never seen an article written by a Tamil environmentalist in Jaffna Peninsula on the matter in 2010 or even after.
          The bullet story is hard to believe.
          Anyway, you may copy the link.

            I haven’t identified the Jaffna environmentalist either, and haven’t read that story. Does that make it less creditworthy? Why should the bullet story be hard to believe? Because the man was a Tamil?

      Dear Champa,
      .
      To make a slightly different point from those above: even at first hearing on Saturday (yesterday) morning, it was seen through by my fellow villagers:
      .
      The price of LP Cooking Gas has been reduced; here are the new rates that I’ve now found on the web:
      .
      http://www.caa.gov.lk/web/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=149&Itemid=521
      .
      The catch: the 12.5 kg cylinder now contains 9.5 kgs of gas. A three-wheeler stopped at the kade where I was having my “kola kenda” (herbal porridge). The driver said that he had sensed it immediately he picked it up – such a guy would – it’s one of their routine hires.
      .
      In the evening I phoned one of the gas dealers in the town: confirmed!
      .
      This will make life more difficult for us all, but is hardly a tragedy. The price-increase has been even greater for the consumer than buying a full cylinder for more cash. Transport now further increases the price!
      .
      Silver lining: if the Double-Paksha government is so weak that it dare not announce a price-increase, change must come soon. Also, this is cheating that people will condemn.
      .
      Could other readers please check this out.

    Wonder what happened to Bangla Lion Prince V + 700 outlaws and the + 701 Pandian Princess or courtiers and their progeny? They were not Aryans mixed with South Indian genealogy of the 700 princesses?
    Or is it the narrative of modern Lankan historians and anthropologist that they got swept by a Tsunami and a new Import of fresh Aryan clan was made from the North Indian subcontinent? When and how did that happen?
    Intriguing indeed, but definitely has distinct similarity to the thinking and resultant voting by 6.9 Million emancipated voters of SL and the brilliant outcomes since then.

    History tells us that many countries have suffered lunatic leaders at various times. Sri Lanka is truly unfortunate in that it has been forced to suffer two lunatic leaders in unbroken succession. First Sirisena then Nandasena, like the first wave of corona being followed by the second wave. Let us all pray there will not be a third lunatic leader or another wave of that dreaded disease in future. Hat tricks are welcome only in cricket.

    When political opponents/activists are arrested WITHOUT CHARGES you can assume there is some monkey business going on. The Muslim lawyer STILL languishes in jail with no credible charges, no legal representation, and no appearance in a court of law. Just like a police state. They arrest at will, for their convenience, with no apparent charges, to cover up THEIR crimes. If this man is suspected of any crimes, according to the law it must be made public.

    I wonder whether Nishantha deSilva is privy to the information of millitary intelligence officers involvement with Easter boomers.

    Let us be truthful. All these “Politicians” of “Yesterday” and “Today” are a breed of “HYBRID” political “Terrorists” that we have come to live with. When in “Power” they see no limit to exercising their duties, responsibilities, and accountabilities. There are no “Check and Balance” systems over their work. Even if there is, such as a Government Audit system, no one cares and allowed, sometimes under the eyes of the Leaders and with their “Blessings” to flout all the principles of “Good Governance” or in whatever it is named. If one is to peruse through the innumerable numbers of “Audit Reports”; “COPE Reports”, “COPA” Reports this situation of “Political Terrorism”, committed and continued by Presidents, PMs, Ministers, and MPs can very well be seen. One latest example is the manner in which the former Governor of the Central Bank, now a State Minister of Finance, without any “Authority” from the Parliament paid a walloping US$ 6.5 million to a CIA Operative in the USA. This “Operative” has been jailed for 12 years. What have we done with the man who has “Illegally” paid out such a large amount direct from the Central Bank? He is today a “State Minister” of Finance entered Parliament on the “National List”. Isn’t he a “Terrorist” and shouldn’t he be indicted and arrested?

      This was not the first time the state, its functionaries and leaders (with 6.9 million support) misused/wasted state’s meager resources while begging for funds all over the world. Now the begging has come to a point where they have started selling parts of the island.

      BBC on 6 December 2011 reported:
      Last year the Sri Lankan government conceded that it paid Bell Pottinger about £3m ($4.7m) a year to try to enhance the country’s post-war image. It said that the company was hired to lobby UK, UN and EU officials.

    04/21 attack is serious, and nobody should play marbles out of it. Arresting a person for it is one thing, presenting evidence more than enough to convict him/her for an offence is quite another. Let us for the sake of argument accept the implication made in this article that the arrests made was to appease the Cardinal. Like the COVID burial affair, if pressure is created to release those arrested, including the International political pressure, would those now arrested be released? I am told by the knowledgeable that Sri Lanka always repeats history in bungling matters like the lavatory coup of 1966. They went on to round up so called miscreants considered to be the opposition but later it was established that the mastermind was Dr. Tissa, alias Rohana Wijeweera. The model presented by Rauff Hakeem is interesting. Bombers like Zahran were actors and Naufer Moulavi was the script writer. The ready-made actors and script writers were made use of by the Directors and Producers of the Act and who are they? This is where geo-politics come in and it is necessary that the “Economic Level” of Sri Lanka should be stifled.

    During the period KING MAHINDA was ruling the country in addition he made lots and lots of money the king also gave room for his cronies of political stooges and armed forces to make money by making illegal deals ,kidnapping,demanding money in big way.THE ONLY MUSLIM POLITICAL LEADER DURING THAT PERIOD WHO MADE LOTS OF MONEY BY ILLEGAL DEALS IS NONE OTHER THAN MR.CLEAN AND INNOCENT MR.RISHARD BADURDEEN.He was the minister in charge of rehabilitation of displaced people.he made millions of money by helping displaced TAMIL YOUTHS WHO WERE HELD IN MENIC FARM To get released from these camps by arranging deals with armed forces.one example of how he made big money is that he was behind the move to dismantle K.K.S CEMENT FACTORY machinery and selling tons and tons of steels to indian muslim scarb merchants joining hands with the ARMY CHIEF OF JAFFNA DISRTICT AT THAT PERIOD.THE DELAY IN ARRESTING WAS DUE THE FRIENDSHIP AND THE UNDER HAND DEALS HE HAD WITH MR.BASIL RAJAPAKSE DURING THE PERIOD HE WAS VERY POWER FULL.NOW THE GOVERNMENT IS BECOMING SO UNPOPULAR WITH IN SHORT PERIOD OF TIME THEY HAVE NO ALTERNATIVE OTHER THAN ARRESTING MR.RISHARD TO PLEASE THE SINGALA MODAYAAS OF THE SOUTH .

    There is no doubt that Rishard is not fit for public life, he is corrupt, looks at life only through the small prism of his religion and clan. He has no class , is half-baked and abuses power.

    He also probably was in the Saudi gravy train and benefitted from extremist organization.Like all politicians in this country he associated with all kinds of people and organizations.

    But the question is was he part of the plot to bomb the churches on Easter day ? Did he have knowledge or did he knowingly help ?

    I think from what we have seen, and the two long years since the event, the case against him seems very vague.

    Justice must be done irrespective of a man’s personality or beliefs. After all we are not Afghanistan or Saudi where fundamentalism reigns.

      But the question is was he part of the plot to bomb the churches on Easter day ? Did he have knowledge or did he knowingly help ?
      There is no question about the role he played in this, during Chitanta government, the time when this was initiated. This only Oodal before Koodal. You have any doubt on that? So my points are not focused in the this arrest and investigation which only aimed at to media attention for hide other matters, including Colombo Pong Cing, Singaraja Reserve, flaring up Covid…..Just feel ok because if he doesn’t deserve this for 4/21, he was with this same Aanduwa and did many oher things, including last month 20A. Waste the time to save better ones. Only feel sympathetic about Hafeez Hisbullah like those who are not parties to Aanduwa’s atrocities. Remember, one time it was speculated that Pillaiyan was going to fed with poison because he accepted in court that he took money from Old King to kill New King. Now the story is changed. When Coup was organized in 2018, Royals counted on this man and got disappointed. If you save this man out of this, it does not mean he will not stay out of any more violence or associating him the Royal government in few months, to swindle & destroy the country.

      My point to readers is, do not be swayed by media publicity on this arrest. That is all what Aanduwa wants. So do not be voluntary victim for that game. If Rishard never did anything bad, still he deserves this for voting for 20A and setting up a Hitler government. So reserve your good points for some useful maters, not to bail out Rishard, who never missed to vote for the extension of PTA and Emergency bills, which are now used to arrest him. These Muslim -Sinhala governments’ politicians has become extreme experts in manipulating the Sinhala-Muslim Modayas’s opinion by playing dramas like these. This man has ample acolytes within Aanduwa to work for him; for sure he will come back out of this with stronger & more dangerous powers (or even as a minister) and vote for Pong Cing bill or do even worse things than that to support Aanduwa. Rishard is not the example taken up to establish Law and Order.
      Muslim-Sinhalese government has been using Muslim extremists from the time Indian Pakistani Citizenship to divide and rule. Jeya, Badiuddin, Rishard, Harris, Hakeem are all pour Oil to division to get their meal from Aanduwa. The mother who fed the child is spankings to discipline it. What do we have in that?

      That would form a long list.
      I have limited my comment connected only to expenses born by this island to give the clan and war criminals a face-lift, possibly a b**b job, ***** extension, …. in order to appear virile among fellow war criminals.

    I don’t think Gotha is necessarily cracking down on the Opposition. He can’t let the Easter attacks slip, as the terrorists have ISIS links. National security of other countries is also at stake. Plus, foreign nationals were also killed, so there are implications for tourism/economy.

      Lester,
      .
      Now all is becoming clear, nobody else, GOTA ET AL may have been the ones behind that disaster…. …. There are enough reports to say who to have let mobilized SAHARANA during MR s junta regime days.
      .
      No matter foreign nationals or even their lovely ones would have been killed, but the bugger siblings wanted to grab power and get exonerated from all the high crime investigations.
      :
      Latter is only what they have achieved by GOTA led govt looking at last 15 months.

      Lester please wake up ….. or else go to your psychologist, if you cant count it well. thank you

        Leela,

        Your hero Ranil has been bribing Muslim ministers for decades. This time he went too far with Bathiudeen. After this failure, the people will not elect Ranil even for a janitorial job in the government. What a disaster, destroying the UNP. for 26 years. Uncle JR is rolling in the grave. You are desperate to blame Gotha. Gotha does not need to cheat to win the elections. In 2009, people wanted to make Mahinda KING.

      “He can’t let the Easter attacks slip, as the terrorists have ISIS links.”

      Gota can’t let the Easter attacker slip, go scot-free.
      What do you suggest Gota should do or should have done about those who killed 18,000 innocent people in 1971, 130,000 between 1987 and 1991, and those who destroyed 95,000 books and rare ola manuscripts, and those who caused 1958, 1961, 1977, 1983, ………….?

      Did those innocent (18,000 + 130,000) innocent people collectively commit suicide due to mental agony caused by Sambandan, VP, Cholan, Pandyan, Portuguese, Dutch, Brits, …. Chelva, Amir, Sir Pon Ramanathan, ….. ?

    They say in Tamil “already you are calling me Neengal (Vous), so it looks like pretty soon you are going to call me Nee (tu)”. That explain that the talker is in only in blaming game, but there is no misdeed committed or neither any impolite foul language uttered. that is why we say on Rishard’s arrest, Martin Niemöller’s teaching, or philosophy does not apply. It does not matter which government punishes the criminals of 4/21, somebody selected by people must punish them. All Muslims ministers & MPs, under leadership of Hakeem installed the Yahapalanaya investigation though Hakeem was even a member in the Yahapalanaya commission that investigated it. If someone in Vaalaiththodam Jr.’s gang opposes Rishrad’s arrest and Yahapalanaya entertained the stalling go ahead in their time time, then who the hell these people are thinking going to investigate 4/21? Are they demanding even better treatment for them in criminal courts than the Royals? That is just a comedy. Remember at the start (in 2010-2012) Tamils said if Aanduwa wants to investigate the war crime it should go ahead. But it did not, it just cheated.

    They all should be punished for 4/21. Same way all those in the war crime should be punished, too. Rishard went with Hakeem, Deva and Sinhala cinema supporting actresses to Geneva to save the War Criminals.

    What happened to the Tamil woman Pulathini Rajendran who took part in the ISIS attacks and was planning to attack Buddhist temples in the next round? Did she die with the suicide bombing done later when the wives were about to be arrested or did she run away to Tamilnadu as some speculate?

      did she run away to Tamilnadu as some speculate?

      Punchi Patriot, didn’t you serve in the Rapist Army. You are playing the drum made out of the cow skin, then why are you searching for the one who ate the cow? You remember the end of the war? You were standing in front he of army with AK 47 in right hand and in left hand with UN Charter and your third hand was checking the blood temperature of the dying girls? You were making hey hurriedly before the last rays of the Sun fading, isn’t it? That is what you proudly call Sinhala Bouddha Dharma.
      Who is suspecting that Pulasthini went to India? You have secretly read the second DNA test too, before it is released to media or courts?

      Where is pulasthini?
      Ask nandasena!
      It is said that he was the one who helped karuna get a fake passport and try to enter the UK soon after the war ended.
      If pulasthini survived and fled sri lanka, nandasena may have been the one to help her also.

      “…………. did she run away to Tamilnadu as some speculate?”

      If she was guilty and running away to Tamilnadu in order to avoid arrest, what were the armed forces, Coast Guard, Air Force, Army, Navy, Police, NIB, Muslim Home Guard …… etc doing? Are you sure no government agency ever helped her to escape?

      Let me explain the philosophy these rogue nations practice that “Enemy’s Enemy is my Friend” . As the last effort to control Bangladesh, Pakistan’s rapist Army entered Dhaka university and created havoc. Mrs. Gandhi stopped Pakistan Rapist Army & saved Bangladesh.
      The year before last year, Bangladesh hanged the war criminals who worked with Pakistan Rapist Army. To please China, Bangladesh voted with China and Pakistan against India & Tamils to Resolution 46/1. During UNHRC’s 46th sitting, Bangladesh Foreign Minister said that nobody wants international investigation other than few Diaspora radicals. The saying in Tamil is ‘the snake on the neck of Siva asked the Garuda, “Machchang how are you”?’ Well, that is ok, Vasuki, the snake is adopted by Siva He protects Vasuki. But the ailing reality to watch is Apasmara (Rishrad, Harris, Nazeer, Hakeem) who is under the feet of Siva also laughing at Tamils. As told in the Pancha Tantra story, the free wild horse who surrender to human to kill the stag is condemned to carry the weight on the man for the rest of its life; no escape from that Karma. A Blind call to save Rishard is only a call to vote for “Colombo Pong Cing”; after all Rishard is more than safe in his gang’s camp.

      Bangladesh has selective amnesia it seems.
      They seem to have forgotten that Sri lanka tried to sabotage their war for independence from pakistani rule, by supporting the pakistani military.

      (The lesson behind that Apasmara story is, Apasmara represents the Modayaness resides in all human beings. Shiva, as the cosmic dancer Natarāja, symbolizes Sacchidānandabrahma – Existence-Knowledge-Bliss – whose dance over Apasmāra is the triumph of Consciousness over ignorance, and hence of the bliss of liberation (mukti). )
      One don’t have to kill the snake saying tying to kill mongoose, or kill mongoose saying the other way. They both are there only to balance each other so man will not be bothered by either of them. There are billion mattes there to fight for and seek justice.So please let Rishard to seek his Moksha under his divines. Don’t disturb him.
