Several Tamil families In Dilithura Was Attacked, Robbed And Houses Set on fire

Colombo Telegraph – Several Tamil families living at a village in Elpitiya, Galle have been assaulted and their houses robbed and set on fire following a dispute involving an Army soldier, Srilanka Mirror reports. According to ‘Ada Derana’ Tamil website, the soldier in question had become angry after a youth of the Dilithura village had refused to address him as ‘sir.’

The soldier, while on vacation, had gone to the village around 10.00 am on April 14 and assaulted the youth at his home and another Tamil youth who had tried to mediate.

Later, around 30 youths had gathered at the location, beaten up the two Tamil youths and set fire to seven houses, push cycles, motorcycles and three wheelers.

They had also got away with money and jewellery. The villagers, who suffered estimated damages of Rs. nine million, have complained to Embilipitiya police. A police team arrived at the scene and arrested two Tamil youths and are searching for several other suspects.

Dilithura is a village with a population of around 3,4000 belonging to 520 Tamil families.

        May be you have a subconscious guilt syndrome, they are unfairly placed on you, you can have your name and faith or no faith and be a great Lankan, more over a great human without the vile, its like you are trying hard to impress some community that you are super Sinhala with these extremist views on how to treat minorities.

          What nonsense are you uttering?Whats this subconscious guilt syndrome of the Sinhalese you are referring to?The problem with you Tamil Tiger terrorists is that with the resounding defeat you achieved at Nandikadal,your inferiority complex has doubled.Thus you consider others who are against your barbaric lifestyles as having extreme views.Talking of extreme views,it is you Tamil Tiger Terrorists who displayed your extreme views in even cutting the bellies of poor Sinhala pregnant women.Why don’t you use your proper Tamil names?You don’t do so because of your subconscious guilt syndrome.Even at this late stage,get rid of being a fake by coming out with your true Tamil names.Damned inferiority complexed Tamil Tiger fraudsters!

        Max your sense of bravado is in mis-handling the few remaining Tamils in Sri Lanka who number around a couple of million. But remember there across the Palk Straights there is over 70 million and if they do decide to descend, where are you going to hide? Be assured your back yard will not be safe. Let us hope saner council will prevail before a calamity befalls us Sinhalese due to the negligence and foolish arrogance of a few.

          The whole problem with you Tamil Tiger terrorists is that you expect others to do your dirty work.So now you expect some millions of Tamils from TN to descend here and reward you with your elusive pipe dream Ealam?You don’t learn from your mistakes.You expected the Tamils in TN to save your terror lord Velu.The TN Tamils took you for a Nandikadal type ride.Anyway keep on day dreaming.The Tamil Tiger terrorists have become the laughing stock of the world.Get out of that inferiority complex and use your real Tamil names and face challenges like true humans instead of being toothless Tigers with the tail hidden between the legs!.What a pathetic display,Tigers turned Hyenas!

    Some stupid moron of a soldier created this problem, and one should not blame neither the government or the sinhala public for this stupidity of the man. But the problem is when the police arrived at the village and arrested the two Tamil youths, and failed to take any actions on those criminals who burnt the village and robbed the Tamils. This is where the blame is squarely on the government. The Police did not act as Police, but as ‘Sinhalese’. This is where the problem is.
    Several isolated incidents like these are happening everywhere in Sri Lanka. Unless the government take serious action and practice what they preach (President’s racial harmony), things will go ugly again in the country- It is not Tamil vs. Sinhala- We all loose the country;

      The army has been pampered and almost deified so much that it creates disharmony by targetting tamils unnecesarily, thus increasing the communal divide.
      http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&artid=35096
      The army is also used by the regime to auppress dissent.
      Demilitarisation as suggested by the LLRC is necessary for peace and harmony.

      this is where the Military men get the upper-hand and the layman becomes the underdog. Since the army officer is Sinhala Buddhist, no doubt that the Police kukkos will side by the army officer. Police officers are able to make the fake look as genuine. At last the Tamil youths will end up in prison for a crime that they have not committed and return back to get their revenge. Here is where a small group of men arm themselves get together and attack a police station like in Jaffna ’83. Then it is the beginning of a new dawn to those people who had cried for their rights and equality. The GoSL should start with its police consisting 25% Buddhist, 25% of Tamils, 25% of Muslims and 25% of Christians and it should be the same in other Government service facilities.

    DILITHURA ATTACK EXPOSED.
    Investigations have exposed that this is another attempt by Bomba Gunda’s still born terror outfit Frontline socialist party who had organized this crime ably assisted by the defeated Tamil Tiger terrorists.The Bomba Gunda’s agents had provided booze and instigated gullible poor Tamil estate workers to agitate.The end result was that the Tamils fought with each other.No Sinhalese were involved.In fact the soldier had gone to settle the dispute.Bomba Gunda had come up with this criminal act to embarrass the GOSL on the eve of Indian parliamentarians visit to the island.
    White van or white tuk tuk,the government must destroy Bomba Gunda’s terror outfit in Nandikadal fashion.I blame the government for not hanging Bomba Gunda by the balls at Galle Face green.Come next time,we will do it ourselves.

    Hey Guys,
    Watch out for the ‘Foreign Hand’ in all this to instigate more fighting to sell more weapons. Sinhala or Tamil we have both got the incorrect Symbols to represent our kind (a lion with a sword appears too threatening & not very non-violent). Both the Lion & the Tiger eat or kill their own Cubs. We saw that happen at the end of the final LTTE war when they used their ‘civilian/combatants’ around the Shield in order to protect them. Let’s find more meaningful symbols before the West takes advantage of our own stupidity to supply us both sides to fight each other……. & keep their economies evade recessions by getting more orders for their top 20 weapons companies ?

    True colors of racist-chauvinist and extremist are showing. Above all they get paid by the MOD for such services 24/7.@CT. The comments of these paid propagandist is degenerating to such an extent, this website could become a snake pit full of racist hatred venom.
    This is a disgrace, where the story is how the army and Sinhala racist/terrorist burnt the poor Tamil homes after stealing/looting. Inappropriate comments should be removed as they are deliberately attempting to derail the story by distracting and asinine comments. How disgusting? For the paid propagandist every Tamil is part of the LTTE rump or Tamil terrorist. This is sickening but the good thing is the west is not buying this story of 22 years again. They are slowing tightening the screws. That is why all this desperation and nasty remarks.

    Some years back in Matugama some of our Sinhala village folk were resoting to raping estate Tamil women after dark.
    The village Buddist monk was looking the other way.

    There is something confusing here. The story begins with a village in Elpitiya in Galle District and ends up at Embiapitiya Police. Someone has mixed up.The name in the Elpitiya area is Divithura and not Dilithra.The population statics given of the village also seems to be exaggerated.
    It is a plantatation area located about 3-4 miles away in the interior from my village. The Divithura jungles were leased to Mudaliyar Dias Abeysinghe by the Dutch for cultivating spices. he brought people as settlers. Later the British statrted big plantations there. Since then the conflict with villagers exist.The introduction of Immigrant labour added to unemployment among the local people.
    Divithura Estate area saw some violence in 1983 July riots. I visited the IDP camp at St MAry’s School at Elpitiya at that time. Divithura is surrounded by a few villages which are generally known for violent disposition of people and was a recruiting ground for JVPin their two insurrections.
    One can understand why the soldier asked a Tamil boy to address him as “Sir”.I can explain the reason but canot express it here for good reasons.

      Hardy you are a muttal. Dambulla and Anuradhpura are scared places like the Mecca is to the Muslims. Can you go there and build a Church or a Hindu Temple? So keep you foul mouth shut and let the people live in peace. The Muslims should not be provoking the Buddhists by trying to bild mosques all over the country and in places where the Buddhists have their shrines. They will send the mad dog Mervyn Silva and then with teh present situation where Muslims are being treated like animals you will find no one to support you. The Taliban maybe?

        GGP, You seem to be a Mulu Muttaal!
        1. The Mosque was around since the Independence, it seems.
        2. How right was it to build a tall Buddha in Trincomalee in the Koneswaram precinct?
        3. How right is it to build a Buddhist temple in Paalavai in the Ketheeswaram precinct? http://arabnews.com/opinion/columns/article614219.ece (A large Buddhist Viharas has been built just 50 meters from the famous Hindu temple Ketheeswaram in Mannar. A 1500 kilo Buddha’s has been installed by the army two weeks ago. There are no Buddhists living anywhere near the Viharas.)

        South Indian Tamil saints have sung thevaram songs on both Ketheeswaran and Koneswaram in the 7th Century. Apparently, they saw these temples in their ‘virtual vision’ and recited these hymns. Is it fair to build Buddhist temples in sacred historical Hindu precincts?

        And you say, GGP, “The Muslims should not be provoking the Buddhists by trying to bild mosques all over the country and in places where the Buddhists have their shrines”. But, the news article in link I have given above goes on to say, ‘…. Buddhist Viharas, statues of Buddha, war memorials have mushroomed in the North and East in places where there are no Buddhist worshipers…..’

    Tamils should not be in Sinhalese areas and trying to sport their LTTE tactics by running foul of the soldiers. They would have suffered teh same fate if they were questioning the LTTE police or cadres. If you wnat to live in Sinhalese homeland then you have to suffer the consequences. Go back to the Tamil homeland and stay there. This is the advice I would give all the Tamil people. If you are together then you can stop the Sinhaleisation of the North and the East. If not do not complain. I am from Yaalpanam and I like it here.

    These are the reasons as to why reconciliation is important in Sri Lanka. When South Africa ended their problems between the whites and the blacks the first thing Nelson Mandela started was reconciliation. Sri Lanka fails to see the importance of it. The end of the war does not mean end of all problems, the hatred and fear with in people’s heart towards each other needs to be eliminated.

    This is truly disturbing. At this very moment I’m disappointed to be called Sinhalese. I stand with my Tamil brethren. This has nothing to do with LTTE this is the stupidity of the Sinhala people. No wonder our country is in such a state. Hope all Tamils understand that all Sinhalese are not like those uncouth attackers.

      I completely agree with Dinesh. This incident is not one that represents all the Sinhalese. Neither does the action of said army official represent that of the whole army. We should be careful that we do not stereotype. True, there are extremists in this country such as the perpetrators of this crime. However, the majority of the country is composed of moderate Sinhala, Tamil and Muslim people. Let’s be moderates and let’s unite as moderates and stand up against the extremists.

      I would like to extend my sincere condolences to my Tamil brothers who lost property and belongings and above all, whose dignity was affected. And on behalf of the moderates of this country, I would like to apologize for the actions of these extremists.

      Also, I would like to request you to not respond to this violence with violence and hatred. Because, violence and hatred never solves problems. Always remember that your Sinhala brothers care about you and are willing to stand against such extremists and their acts of violence.

    Hey, Rohan, You ask why a tall Buddha statue near Koneswaram temple. When was the present Koneswaram temple built there? Started in 1956 as a part of the Eelam project and completed in 1960s.When the Portuguese destroyed it was a Buddhist pagoda (3 Shrines)belonging to Mahaterunnanse of Arakan (Burma) and supervised by a Trunnanse and Ganinnanses, wrote Portuguese historian Queyroz. The lands at Gantalava and Tampalagama belonged to the temple, he says. Francis Xavier converted the Terunnanse and Ganinanses to Christianity. Captain Azavedoo destroyed the temple and Constantine De Saa removed the material to build the Fort. Captain Pereira killed the last of the Ganninnanses and a Yakdessa (Kattandiya) who performed rituals there.No mention of any Brahamins or Hindu priests. So why question the appearance of a Buddhist symbol in this former Buddhist sacred spot?
