Since 1948 – Sri Lanka’s Deceptions Continue!

A few days back – the Eelam Tamils, diaspora Tamils and the World Tamils commemorated the 7th anniversary of Mullivaghzhal, in which thousands of innocent lives were lost – massacred in cold blood. I will avoid going into the history of this massacre. There is nothing to hide. It was done with the help of China, Pakistan, India and a few other counties, including the then state government of Tamil Nadu. I know that patriotic Indians will not like to see that I have included India in this list. But who is answerable to the ample evidence available, of Indian involvement in ‘bringing this war to an end’? India may justify its shameful support to Sri Lanka, but did it consider the innocent casualties caused by its counterblow? Has anyone challenged the Sri Lankan government on the figures it released at the time, saying there were only 70 to 80 thousand people living in the war zone, in the Vanni? At the end of the war, it was proved that they had downplayed the figures, attempting to prevent any ‘international interference’.

However, the war victory, in the name of “rescuing the Tamils from the clutches of the LTTE”, proved wrong in many aspects. In a recent interview, the Defence Secretary during the war said that, ‘It was not surprising that the defeat of Tamil Tigers strongly impacted the people who were brainwashed by Prabhakaran. This is because he was their hero’. I agree that the international diplomacy of any Sri Lankan government is highly effective.

Since, so-called independence from the British in 1948, bogus promises and time-buying statements made by every Sri Lankan government on the ethnic issue, worked well in their favour. Out of 68 years, only 26 years of war is given as a pretext to the international community, for not settling the political grievances of the Tamils.

Non-celebration of war victory

Some people with limited vision believe that non-celebration of the war victory this year by the government is a good gesture. This calibre of people should ask themselves whether the war that ended in May 2009 was between two countries. Otherwise, if this is to be celebrated annually, there should be two additional celebrations of winning against the JVP insurgency in 1971 and in 1989.

Let’s look at the ground realities. What has been done by the earlier and the present government in the Tamil Homeland, the North and East? Today, the North and East are colonised with people from the South and Buddhist Temples have sprung up in every nook and corner. Also the military has established businesses, narcotic drugs and made pornographic movies freely available with the intention of diverting the hearts and minds of the Tamil youth from political engagement.

Therefore everyone, including VVIPs in international institutions, should look into the ingredients of the cake, rather than the beautiful icing. Since 1948, the Tamils gained nothing, but have lost everything politically, socially, economically and culturally.

A Tamil expression goes, “A realist has many enemies”. We can’t stop communicating the reality, just because it doesn’t please or satisfy some. On that basis, we should look at what has been going on since 1948.

Even before 1948, leaders in the South had a master plan to convert the island into a Sinhala Buddhist state. This thinking is based on a fictional Buddhist dogma known as the ‘Mahavamsa’. The cultural genocide of the Tamils as witnessed in the destruction of the Public Library of Jaffna comes into this, especially because it was set on fire by the government forces, accompanied by two government ministers. The debate about which ethnic group was in the island first can be argued in pages and for months. Those arguments have been made thoroughly in the past by many. I need not repeat them here.

Oppression in stages

It cannot be denied that Tamils were living in many parts of island before and during the time of Independence (1948), mostly in the forest and undeveloped from the South to Colombo and suburbs – as well as in the North and East. Under the master plan of converting the island into Sinhala Buddhism – stage one was carried out soon after independence. Tamils living outside their homeland, the North and East were violently and legally targeted. Tamils were chased back to the North and East from places like – Kataragama, Tissamaharama, Matara, Galle, Kalutura, Panandura, Colombo and suburbs. The same in Negombo, Puttalam, Chilaw, Uddappu and other areas. Whoever didn’t want to move back to the North and East changed their identity, in effect converting their ethnicity. I wrote about this in detail in one of articles, “Kataragama to KKS” (South to North) published on 24 October 2010.

While stage one was progressing successfully, the second stage was initiated to target the Plantation Tamils who had been brought by the British to work in tea plantations in the Up-country. Wherever the British colonised, they took labourers from South India to work in their plantations. This was the case in South Africa, Mauritius and Malaysia. In the stage two processes, thousands of Tamils who lived and worked in the Tea plantations for more than one hundred years were disfranchised and repatriated back to India. In fact, this horrendous disfranchisement was done cleverly with the help of some selfish Tamil politicians.

While the violent attacks continued on Tamils, causing thousands of casualties and throwing their economy into ruin, Tamil political leaders failed to alert the international community and seek the help of their colonial masters. They continued fruitless negotiations and non-violent struggles, for decades.

Arson attack on evidence of Tamil history

When stage one and stage two had been successfully completed, their third stage began to take shape in the Tamil homeland, the North and East. While settling Sinhalese and establishing Buddhist temples, they initiated cultural genocide within the Tamil homeland. The Police violently attacked and killed nine and injured more than fifty during the 1974 World Tamil Research Conference in Jaffna. As it was mentioned above – in June 1981, one of the biggest libraries in Asia, the public library of Jaffna was set on fire, destroying important documents of the evidence of Tamil history – more than 97,000 volumes of books and manuscripts ended-up in ashes. On the other hand discrimination/standardisation in Education also began; introducing what has been described as a form of apartheid system.

This motivated the Tamil youth to start militancy to protect their people from state terrorism. Surprisingly the state claims that the oppressed people are their ‘own citizens’.

The Sri Lankan government took this opportunity and allowed Tamils freely to seek shelter abroad, especially in Western countries, thinking that this approach would reduce the Tamil population in the North and East. It resulted in nearly a million Tamils seeking shelter in foreign countries, which eventually became counter-productive for both.

As the war intensified and caused massive displacement in the North and East, those who could afford to live in the capital moved to Colombo. The government, which always waits for an opportunity, made propaganda claiming that 60 per cent of the Colombo population are Tamils. When this matter was raised during the sessions of the UN Human Rights Council – UN HRC in Geneva, we queried that, if this figure is true and correct, how many Tamil representatives from Colombo are in the Parliament? The government reps could not answer this question even today.

Rajapaksa hoodwinked those……

I will agree that the Sri Lanka government is good at its diplomacy. For example, six years after the war, former President Rajapaksa managed the International community including India with his bogus promises. He agreed to whatever the UN Secretary General wanted and told India that he would grant more than in the 13th amendment. He referred to it as 13-plus. Eventually, whoever helped to win the war was hoodwinked by Rajapaksa. As he won the 2010 Presidential election through jugglery, the hidden powers never allowed him to prolong his Presidency. In my article in 2010, “Kataragama to KKS (South to North)” I predicted the following: –

“…………. But in our experience many politicians — presidents, prime ministers and monarchies have fallen into to the ‘laws of motion’ of Sir Isaac Newton – “To every action, there is always an equal and opposite reaction” and “everything which goes up has to come down” because of the ‘gravity’ of earth. Let us wait and see the future of the Rajapaksas and Sri Lanka.” (Excerpt)

Also I said the following, “The President should be open, fair and impartial in his commitment. If he wants to prove his fairness and equal treatment of citizens, he should courageously resettle the Tamils from Kataragama to Kankesanthurai (KKS). This could be a stepping stone for a united Sri Lanka.” (Excerpt).

The present government is no different to earlier ones. The UN HRC resolution to which Sri Lanka is a co-sponsor moves at not even a snail’s speed. The current President rejected any international involvement in the war crimes investigation, an important clause in the resolution. As usual, the Prime Minister is using his diplomacy to adjust the hot and cold within the government. The constitutional council which intended to draft a new constitution has not even acknowledged that there is an ethnic conflict in the country. The talk show about a federal solution has already been rejected by many Ministers and supporters of the present government.

International community & India

At this juncture the best approach of the victims is not to rely on investing further confidence in this government. Each government of Sri Lanka has been buying time since 1948. As usual, the international approach and the high-profile lobby should continue. Presently the UK government as well as the opposition understand the dodgy agenda of the Sri Lankan government, especially on the ethnic issue. Canada and all European Union countries also.

In India, the Central government and the State government of Tamil Nadu have promised and made positive statements regarding a political settlement in Sri Lanka. The US which worked out the resolution is shuttling regularly between Washington and Colombo, pressuring Sri Lanka to implement the resolution in full. Now the US has begun to feel that they are on a ‘mission impossible’. Like earlier governments, the present one is also buying time to enable their successful contribution towards converting the whole island into Sinhala Buddhism. They are brilliant in their diplomacy and have extensive experience in taking the international community for a ride.

They managed with India which they consider as a ‘disliked’ country, because of the Indian respect for Lord Buddha and Buddhism. Also the Sinhalese are not ready to excuse India for breeding Tamil militancy in India. Because of their animosity towards India, they even re-named ‘Mysore dhal’ as ‘red dhal’ and ‘Bombay onion’ as ‘big onions’. However with their strategic diplomacy, they won the war with the support of India. They gave a lesson to the world that anything is possible, as long as a country is good at diplomacy.

Now who is answerable to the Tamils? Is it the international community which passed several resolutions in the UN HRC or India which signed an accord with Sri Lanka on finding a political solution to the Tamils? Since 1948, Tamils have been cheated and lost their land, territory, economy, culture, kith and kin, etc.

Those who have hope in the present government should read what was predicted and written in the local media. Below I quote what was said by an independent writer:

“….President Sirisena appears willing to turn his back on his electoral mandate and do anything it takes to wrest back full control of the SLFP, at great cost to his presidential legacy. Prime Minister Wickremesinghe continues to adopt a see-no-evil approach while the actions of his party-men and advisors grievously damage and discredit his administration.

For both the President and the Prime Minister, this path is ultimately self-destructive. The benchmarks were set higher for them. Every deviation from their stated purpose is perceived as a grave betrayal. Their fall from grace will be steeper and more devastating. Elected as reformers, both men have made active choices to proceed with politics as usual. Rather than make difficult political decisions that would restore public faith in Government, they continue to pander and accommodate the most corrupt and inept within their ranks”.

        It shows in your comment . Can’t even understand IQ and IQ distributions. Were you in-bred? Stop marrying cousins.

        “Recently a Sri Lankan girl Nishi Uggalle scored 162.”

        Excellent. It will be interesting to check her genealogy and her general upbringing, her habits and her food. What can others learn from her?

        Mean IQ = 79

        The Girl has IQ of 162, or 162-79 =83 points above the mean of 79 = 83/15 (standard Deviation) =5.53 standard deviations above the mean = Z-score.

        This Means that Cumulative Probability of All who fall below this IQ for Sri Lanka ( Mean IQ 79) is 0.9999999. So, she must be 1 in 999,999,9 or about 1 in 10 million Sri Lankans.

        For Singaporeans, Average IQ 109, IQ of 162 = 162-109 = 53/ 15 = 3.53 z score, cumulative probability is 0.9998

        This Means that Cumulative Probability of All who fall below this IQ for Singapore ( Mean IQ 79) is 0.9998. So, she must be 1 in 9,998 or about 1 in 10,000 Singaporeans, or 100 Singaporeans for every 1,000,000 Singaporeans or For a Population of 5.4 millions, there must be 100×5.4 =540 Singaporeans with IQs above 162.

            “Amarasiri,the world you come from Tamil Nadu what is the IQ”

            Who says Amarasiri comes from Tamil Nadu? Of Course we know almost All Paras came from Tamil Nadu one time or other.

            Amarasiri thinks that the IQ of Tamil Nadu is bi-modally distributed, just like the IQ of Tamils in Jaffna.

            Those who did not in-breed had their IQs go up.

            Those who in-bred had their IQs, go down.

            It is based on the distribution, the standard deviation.

            11 Year old Indian(Tamil) Girl Vishalini has highest IQ in the world

            K. Vishalini, Tirunelveli, TamilNadu, 11-year old girl ,has highest IQ in the World. She will be eligible for an entry in the Guinness only after she turns 14.

            Her amazing Achievements:

            Vishalini’s IQ is around 225. It is higher than that of the Guinness record holder, Kim Ung-Yong, whose IQ is around 210.

            Amarasiri Estimates her Z score, assuming an average IQ for Tamil Nadu at 81 ( For India) and with a Standard Deviation of 15, to be (225-81)/15 =144/15 =9.6. Looks like she is rarer than 1 in a billion!

            She has passed Microsoft Certified Professional and Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) with more than 90% when she was just 10 years old – a world record again. (The previous record was held by a 12-year-old boy from Pakistan, Irtaza Haider)

            She regularly now gets invited for “guest lectures” on Engineering topics at International conferences and by prestigious institutions like National Institute of Technology

            Both NITK of Mangalore and Kalasalingam Engineering College are now more than ready to welcome Vishalini. But her parents want the girl to enjoy her childhood for the next three years before thinking of entering a college campus.

            Amarey, you have a bloody good handle of the subject and that of stats. Well done.

            Educate me pls, when you say in-breeding ‘within’ communities, are you referring to ‘intra’ family marriages ( between cousins, close relatives ) or ‘inter’ family marriages ( marrying someone outside your family ) ? or both.

            The Govt must encourage outside community marriages, to ‘up’ the gene stock and according to your analysis the ‘IQ’ level too.They can incentivize these marriages through outright grants, tax exempts, free public transport and guaranteed admission to national schools for their offspring etc.

            What do you think Amarey ?

              Good to know that you understand the problem of in-breeding. IQs, and stats.

              “Educate me pls, when you say in-breeding ‘within’ communities, are you referring to ‘intra’ family marriages (between cousins, close relatives ) or ‘inter’ family marriages (marrying someone outside your family ) ? or both.”

              It is intra-cousins, between the first cousins and second cousins that is the problem, The Problem aggravates when this practice is carried out generation after generation, within a small gene pool.

              Muslims primarily and others, Hindus and Buddhists, secondarily must be informed and educated to get out of the In-breeding Practice, and dropping their IQ every generation. In the past they did not know. Noe they know. (Remember Buddha and Yasodara were First Cousins. How many First cousin marriages were there before that?)

              Should the state intervene? Yes. Why, because it endangers the health of the citizens, the intelligence of the citizens and the overall health and economic prosperity of the people and the nation.

              What about religion? Religion, Islam, does not object, so the state can step in. The problem is that some claim it was the “tradition” Sunnah of prophet Mohamed. They conveniently forget that the Prophet’s First tradition is to be married to an older women,in the tribe who was not a first or second cousin.

              Use Reason, Use Intelligence and Remember that humans Evolved from primates, and human health and intelligence depends on genes. Your Idiotic Mullahs and Ulama, are ignorant and will not help you. They do not know IQ, Mean and standard Deviation is, just like Wimal Buruwansa, who says 2/2 =0.

              A quick estimate of Inbreeding Impact on Intelligence. A Question remains on its effect on health.

              1,400 years of inbreeding, with 30 years per generation is 46 generations. So,the Muslims IQ must have dropped bu 0.3 IQ points every generation, and with 46 generations, the IQ must have dropped from 100 to 0.3×46 = 13.8 points i.e. IQ 100- 13.8 = IQ 86 close to 85 IQ for South Asians and Middle Easterners.

              Now the Natives of Northern Mediterranean and Southern Mediterranean are genetically about the same. However, the average IQ for Northern Mediterranean is from 90-100 whereas the average IQ for Southern Mediterranean, comprising mostly Muslims is between 80 and 86.

              The IQs of the Muslims 1,000 years ago must have been higher by 10 points or more.

              Try explaining that to a an Ulama or Mullah. They will say Revelation sits in judgement over Reason.

              Due to the actions of Prophet Muhammad and the Rightly-Guided Caliphs, marriage between cousins is explicitly allowed and even encouraged in Islam. The Qur’an itself does not discourage or forbid this practice in any way. In fact it implicitly allows it, as seen in chapter 4 verse 23:

              Prohibited to you (For marriage) are:- Your mothers, daughters, sisters; father’s sisters, Mother’s sisters; brother’s daughters, sister’s daughters; foster-mothers (Who gave you suck), foster-sisters; your wives’ mothers; your step-daughters under your guardianship, born of your wives to whom ye have gone in,- no prohibition if ye have not gone in;- (Those who have been) wives of your sons proceeding from your loins; and two sisters in wedlock at one and the same time, except for what is past; for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful;-

                Amarey, a super response you have made.

                Allow me to make a different observation, that from Human Behavior or Behavioral Science.

                This is the ‘availability bias’ or what is available, in front of you. To the various communities in the past, what was available was your own 1st and 2nd cousins. They had nowhere else to go.

                Then religious and social practices of the past guide us now and into the future. This is where as you say, reason must discourage this practice.
                There was a study done in the past wherein it showed the highest down syndrome cases in SL were within the Kandyan Community.

                Going back to the past, folks came from all over the surrounding areas to celebrate the Spring Equinox, to the Stonehenges around the world,so their young also met other young, fall in love and settle down.

                They can teach us something, I guess.

                Thanks.

        timbuttu

        Truth is hard to swallow, especially by Mutts who cannot comprehend the meaning of individual IQs and Average National IQ”s and standard deviations.

        This is called poor general knowledge.

        Just Google IQ and also on U Tube,. Also google in-breeding and IQ. Get the Internet to educate you on the data and facts.

        Please Use REASON! Race and IQ part 5; Inbreeding, Health and IQ

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drUuzsQlT1k

        It is amazing how much mental gymnastics there are around this issue. The facts are that the races score different on IQ tests. There are three responses to this.

        The first is that the difference is genetic, as shown in this video. Honestly this is the most simple answer and it never ceases to amaze me how people don’t just accept it and move on with their lives.

        The second response is that they are victims of their environment they can’t help being stupider because of how they were raised or taught. The general support for this line of thought is the idea of a racial conspiracy, and the more and more racism is rooted out, and the more and more blacks fail to achieve a high IQ despite of this, the more and more the hunt of a racist explanation begins to seem like a witch hunt. This is even more surprising seeing as the data always suggests it is the Asians who have higher IQ, and the Jews who have the highest. As the professor eloquently explained with the ghetto syndrome, this line of thought does not hold up under evidence.

        The third and strongest counter-point to this argument is that it is culture that fosters bad intelligence, or that the IQ test itself is made for a certain culture. The IQ test is indicative of western culture, which is the only successful culture across the globe.

        If it is true the the races are unequal because of culture then it would make sense to take away their culture from them, but I have a feeling that the left would also spit fire and scream about multiculturalism. Of course the left never really cared about the actual welfare of blacks except that they remain the championed under-class, as evidence from the past 50 years of American history has shown.

        If they left did care they wouldn’t allow them to damage their own lives using their own culture, which is the source of so much gang violence and educational failure.

        Why are the Muslim Ulama, Mullah and Imsans not bringing up the issue of in-breedinf, First and second cousin marraiges among the Muslims, that is making the community sicker than the general non-inbreeding population and also results in lower IQ.

        All because of the Revelation and the Lifestyle, Sunnah of Prophet Mohamed?

        When will the Muslims accept REASON and overrule Revelation and traditions, when the data supports it?

        Muslim Inbreeding—- a human catastrophe

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nm6T1_au5GM

        “Test it and find your monkey IQ than preaching RUBBISH from Peradeniya a useless university to produce Hmmm.”

        What Peradeniya or any other university can produce is base on the Materials they get. The need to select from a pool whose average IQ is 79. A standard deviation of 2 gives the IQ of Sr Lankan University students to be above 109, the Average for Singapore. However expect the Physical Sciences and Engineering to be on the high end and the Arts Faculty to be on the lower end, and the others in between.

        The Numbers above 109 may range from 109 to 160 or more, depending on the individual student and the standard deviation. Can you understand that?

        Why don’t you take some courses in statistics and distributions, so that you may improve your general knowledge.

        IQ is a measure to Rank Imbecilles, Morons, Idiots, People with Common sense, above average performers and geniuses.

        Through the Grape Vine…

        Amarasiri heard that during the above period, the IQ of Perdeinya Students were tested for the various Faculties and Departments. Also heard that the rankings were as follows, but do not know the actual values, so that can be compared to other countries.

        Top: Science Faculty: Physical Sciences ( Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry)

        Next: Engineering Faculty: ( Electrical, Civil, Mechanical)

        Next: Medical Faculty/ Dental Faculty

        Next: Science Faculty : Biological Sciences ( Chemistry, Botany, Zoology)

        Next: Arts Faculty. Do not know the Departments such as English, Sinhala, Tamil, Pali, Economics, Philosophy, Sociology, Geography etc.

        Amarasiri wonders, if any testings have been done for Sri Lankan University Students. This is useful information so that Sri Lankan students can be compared on an international scale in this global economy for competitiveness and innovation.

        Given the Average National IQ being 79, and assuming a Standard Deviation(SD) of 15, with 2 SD, the IQ level is 109, and will comprise 2.2% of the population with IQ’s greater than 109.

        SRI LANKA: WHAT IS THE AVERAGE IQ? 79.

        https://iq-research.info/en/page/average-iq-by-country/lk-sri-lanka

        http://www.photius.com/rankings/national_iq_scores_country_ranks.html

        These numbers came from a work carried out from 2002 to 2006 by Richard Lynn, a British Professor of Psychology, and Tatu Vanhanen, a Finnish Professor of Political Science, who conducted IQ studies in more than 80 countries.

        Richard and Tatu argues that differences in national income are correlated with differences in the average national intelligence quotient (IQ). They further argue that differences in average national IQs constitute one important factor, but not the only one, contributing to differences in national wealth and rates of economic growth.

        These results are controversial and have caused much debate, they must be interpreted with extreme caution.

            Ethics: Taboo genetics
            Probing the biological basis of certain traits ignites controversy. But some scientists choose to cross the red line anyway.

            But trying to forestall such poor choices by drawing red lines around certain areas subverts science, says Christopher Chabris of Union College in Schenectady, New York. Funding for research in some areas dries up and researchers are dissuaded from entering promising fields. “Any time there’s a taboo or norm against studying something for anything other than good scientific reasons, it distorts researchers’ priorities and can harm the understanding of related topics,” he says. “It’s not just that we’ve ripped this page out of the book of science; it causes mistakes and distortions to appear in other areas as well.”

            Here, Nature looks at four controversial areas of behavioural genetics to find out why each field has been a flashpoint, and whether there are sound scientific reasons for pursuing such studies.

      Can you show this forum as to which schools that the Europeans established in North and East? If you care to investigate as to the facts, you will be gob smacked! In Jaffna in particular, the best schools were established by the American Anglican missionaries! This was soon after the end of the Americal civil war that caused frictions between the Brits and Americans, and as a result, the Brits shunted the American missionaries away from the capital colombo!

      The reason why as to more Tamils were employed within civil service because there were simply more English educated Tamils than their Sinhala counterparts. This is the truth. If you disagree, you need to show with deeds that the Brits showed favouritism towards the Tamils over the Sinhala. This is absurd because, in 1948, the Brits were happy to hand over the power to the Sinhala leaving the Tamils at the mercy of the Sinhala! You need to be objective rather than devouring the Sinhala Buddhist chauvistic materials!

        No we do not regret. While Wellala Tamils were licking the arse of whites, Sinhala people led by Puran Appu and Gongalegoda Banda waged relentless wars against the British invaders. Buddhist monks were in the forefront in the freedom fight against the British. Keppitipola Disawe who fought against the Brits was executed. Brits massacred all the able bodied men in Wellassa after the rebellion, cut down all the fruit bearing trees and burnt everything. Can somebody tell me whether any Tamil died fighting against the British rule.

          People from all communities converted to Catholicism and to Anglicanism in order to improve their prospects. Some indeed converted to catholicism and then to Anglicanism and then of course to Buddhism expediently! Can you think of such people as to who they are? You only need to look at as to who governed Sri Lanka since 1948; you will have the answer. Now; tell me as to which community such people hail from?

              “Tamils NEVER rised against Portugese”

              When the Portuguese took the Tamil throne of the Jaffna kingdom, the last king of Jaffna Cankli Kumaran fought decisively with the Portuguese forces (an army of 5000) under the command of Felipe De Oliveriya (he was not interested in any convention or an agreement with the Portuguese). Unfortunately, Cankli Kumaran’s forces were defeated and the Tamil kingdom came under Portuguese domination in 1621, and this was how the Tamils lost their sovereignty, independence and their traditional homeland.

          Which idiot told you, the Sinhalese fought the British for independence?

          Neither D. S. Senanayaka and the Congress nor Keppitipola, Puran Appu, Gongalegoda Banda, Anagarika Dharmapala or any Buddhist Bhikkus fought the British for the independence?

          Puran Appu and/or Gongalegoda Banda did not fight any national struggle (only a brief uprising limited for few days, as a direct response to the introduction of new tax by the then Governor Torrington), Keppetipola fought for personal reasons (not for the country) and so were the others.

          Unlike the Indians (Mahatma Gandhi, Jawalhal Nehru, Mohd Ali Ginna, Subash Chandra Bose, and others) who suffered for their Independence, the Sinhalese whom Anagarika Dhammapala termed as ‘Kalu Suddho’ collaborated with the British, who gave the Sri Lankans Independence on a platter (without shedding a single drop of tears, sweat or blood) and made them leaders to rule the entire country.

          Monarawila Keppetipola in 1818, Puran Appu in 1848, Mayadunne, Gongalegoda Banda, Kudapola Rahula thero, Wariyapola Sumangala and a few others were rebels who fought at different periods (long before independence) for different issues/reasons, it had nothing to do with the country’s Independence. These fools were easily crushed and were executed very long before Sri Lanka obtained independence.

          Did any of them fight and succeed in sending the Brits out of the country? None of their struggle contributed to the Independence of Sri Lanka, it was granted in 1948, only after the British were forced to leave the region due to Gandhi’s struggle in India. When the British gave independence to India, they found that it is time to leave this region and it is pointless keeping a tiny country like Sri Lanka. In 1948, we got it free on a platter, thanks to Gandhi and the Indians. Go and listen to Nanda Malini’s song ‘Nidahas baila’, it is very well composed with the facts.

          Very similar to some of the Sinhala rebellion against the British rule even the Tamils have rebelled. Pandara Vanniyan (Kulasegaram Vairamuthu Pandaravanniyan) was known as one of last native Tamil chiefs to challenge British rule.

          We should not forget the service rendered by Sir Ponnampalam Ramanathan at that time and on his return from London, some of the top families of Sinhalese aristocracy had no problem in pulling his carriage through the streets of Colombo virtually carrying him on their backs and the Sinhala leaders took turns to pull his carriage. Anagarika Dharmapala called Ramanathan a ‘Hero’, D S Senanayake called him ‘the greatest Ceylonese of all times’, Sir Baron Jayatilaka referred to him as ‘the greatest man Ceylon has produced during the past 50 years’.

        Dear Native,

        My Elders tell me the Tamils migrated legally , illegally and even forcefully to Srilanka after our Monk Mihindu landed in Mihinthale.

        And they kept coming ever since, up until the nineteen sixties as Kallathonies.

        So how could our ancestors have joined them.

        I don’t think they were “hip” even then to date our chicks..Or our boys to date theirs’

        Now your early migrants want to be on or better than par with us.

          I hear that the recent Sri Lankan migrants (British Tamil, British Sinhalese, British Muslims) to the UK want to vote (Brexit) to come out of EU for the simple reason they see too many immigrants from East Europe, entering the country using the EU liberal arrangement.

          So there is no change in attitude towards the migrants simply because they were first to arrive here and there.

            That will be the the ultimate homage to the great British, Dr Balasinghma and his mercenary Mr Pirahaparan.

            And the fulfilment of the centuries long desire of Tamilians to have their own Nation.

            If you have too many migrants coming over,British Cameron may use the excuse that too many Eelaams for so many Ethnics is near impossible, although they respect and practice the principles of Democracy and right to Self Rule in other countries.

      In 1948, DS Senanakake, JR Jayawardena, SWRD Bandaranayake, and many other Sinhala Puppies were not only collaborating with the British (running behind them) but they were also bending into different postures and licking their bottoms. Due to that they also earned the name KALU SUDDHAS from their own fellow Sinhalese. The tears, sweat and blood of Indians struggle paved the way for Sri Lanka to get Independence on a platter. By licking the British, the Sinhala Puppies got the whole country including the land which belonged to the Tamils (Tamil Eelam) and therefore we have to fight to get it back.

      Unlike Mahatma Gandhi, Nehru and Mohd Ali Ginna who suffered for their Independence, the British gave our SINHALA KALU SUDDHAS Independence on a platter (without shedding a single drop of tears, sweat or blood) and made them leaders to rule the entire country including the Tamil Eelam.

      In fact, the Sinhalese should thank the British for unifying the separate Tamil federal Kingdom with the Sinhala state in 1833 and giving it entirely to the Sinhalese in 1948. Due to your white masters (British) who created a unitary country- one (single) majority system, today the Tamils lost their sovereignty, religion, economic infrastructure, wealth, dignity, human rights, etc. and were reduced to refugees in their own home land.

      Who Were the COLONIAL LACKIES ???

      We often hear the Sinhala racists and the Sinhala Buddhist Chauvinists say the Tamils were favored by the British.

      WHO were collaborating with the colonial rulers? It was not the Tamils who were Colonial Lackeys but the Sinhalese.

      The Portuguese gave the Sinhalese a fore name as DON for collaborating with them and helping them with all their basic needs. (Remember, unlike the Dutch and the British, the Portuguese did not bring their women).

      Some examples were Don David Hewavitarana AKA Anagarika Dharmapala and Don Niculas Gunawardhana AKA Hikkaduwa Sri Sumangala.

      The Portuguese also gave surnames to the children born to the Sinhalese women as Perera, Silva, Fernando, Fonseka, Dias, Coorey, Corea, Mendis, Peris, etc.

      The Tamils do not have Silvas and Pereras because they were NOT Colonial Lackies like the Sinhalese.

      WHO WERE THE Colonial Lackies TO THE BRITISH?

      There were MORE COLONIAL BOOT LICKERS AMONG THE SINHALESE THAN AMONG TAMILS. Many Sinhala Elites were by products of the colonial gene pool and that was not the case among the Tamil Elites. The descendants of these mixed blooded Sinhala leaders suddenly became the DIRECT DESCENDANTS OF DUTTU GEMUNU that is the logic only Sinhalese can understand. There were more Sinhala elites who were the lap dogs of the British than the Tamils.

      STARTING FROM Don Stephen Senanayake (son of Don Spater Senanayake), through Dudley Shelton Senanayake, Sir John Lionel Kotelawala, Neelaperumalge Solomon West Ridgeway Dias Bandaranaike (previously Kalukapuge), Wijeyananda Dahanayake, Sirimavo Banadaranaike (of Mawalatenne Mohattala lineage), Thambi Mudiyansalage Junius Richard Jayawardene, Ranasinghe Premadasa (son of Richard Ranasinghe), Dingiri Banda Wijetunge, Chandrika Banadaranaike Kumaratunge and Mahendra PERCIVAL Rajapakse (Son of GEORGE Rajapakse), among our heads of government from Independence to date.

      However, most of these men changed from `BROWN SAHIBS` to `ARYA SINHALA BUDDHIST PATRIOTS` almost overnight. Men and women who occupied the front seats during Sunday services in churches became regular visitors to Buddhist temples and patrons of Buddhism overnight. Men and women who had western Christian names, eliminated them from their families very quickly and started using names linked to Buddhism and Sinhala history. HOW MUCH OF THIS CHANGE WAS OUT OF GENUINE CONVICTION and how much of it is the continuance of a CHARADE OF POLITICAL EXPEDIENCY?

      I find only three men who can claim to have been untainted by the `ADAPTATION TO COLONIAL SYNDROME`, in name, religion or way of life. They are W.Dahanayake, Dingiri Banda Wijetunge and the current president Maithreepala Sirisena.

      The Tamils “licked” and got what they wanted, if that is what you say. Unfortunately, the Sinhalese licked and got screwed back, if you understand with your small brain. Time for you to ponder.

      Ah, if the licking Tamils had that good with the British and had the chance to knock on the Sinhalese duds, why do you think they walked and talked with the Sinhalese towards independence, and that, too in a united Sri Lanka? I agree, the Tamils were idiots then for not realising what sort of barbarians they were dealing with, even after living with them for thousands of years. The only language barbarians ever knew was to grab, grab and grab, just like greedy monkeys.

      Here is a story appeared on June 12th 2008, in the London, The Economist with heading of:
      “Tamil Tigers in Britain Burning less bright?”

      “Tamil nationalists face a bigger long-term challenge, however: convincing the next generation. Most of those collared by the police are older folk born in Sri Lanka (those charged last month, for example, are between 34 and 51 years old). Islamist terrorists, by contrast, are often British-born and sometimes still in their teens. At Tamil demonstrations, such as the one on June 10th in London, most are first-generation migrants, not hot-headed students.

      That the struggle is rooted in geography, not religion, is one reason. Another is that young Sri Lankans are too successful to need to march or plot. They are more likely than other Asians to be employed (though they earn slightly less than Indians) and Sri Lankan children do better at school than any ethnic group bar the Chinese. Intensive extracurricular learning and well-educated parents (especially the mothers) help to explain it, suggests Jill Rutter of IPPR, a think-tank. Branding helps too: teachers may label Somali refugees damaged basket-cases, but Tamil children, sometimes no less traumatised, are stereotyped as industrious maths geeks. Labels can be self-fulfilling. Popular actresses such as Amara Karan are further signs of the community’s success.”

      This is the story of how Tamil refugees, equal to Somalis, were competing in 2000s against Powerful Hong Kong Chinese crocodiles’ children in classes.

    At the time Sri Lanka got independence, the situation prevailed was similar to the situation in South Africa before black majority rule was established by Nelson Mandela. In South Africa the white minority ruled the majority blacks. In Sri Lanka the Tamil Wellala minority controlled the Majority Sinhalese. In medical, engineering and science faculties more than 60% were Tamils. Large majority of top administrative jobs were in the hands of Tamils. We had doctors and engineers working in Sinhala areas who could not communicate with Sinhalese in Sinhala. Bank of Ceylon, the only bank that provided capital for industries and business was controlled by Tamils. It was very difficult for a Sinhalese to get a loan from BOC at that time. This is not because Sinhalese were lazy but due to the infamous ‘Divide and Rule’ policy of the British. In South Africa, Nelson Mandela resorted even to terrorism to bring about the change where as in Sri Lanka, Sinhalese resorted for peaceful means to change the situation. Of course as a result, Tamils lost their privileged position in the same way white minority lost their privileged position in South Africa. The irony is nobody says Nelson Mandela discriminated the white minority in South Africa. There were no serious problems in South Africa because the whites over there were intelligent enough to face the reality.

      “Nelson Mandela resorted even to terrorism to bring about the change where as in Sri Lanka, Sinhalese resorted for peaceful means to change the situation. “

      This confirms your attempt to repeat a lie often enough that after awhile even you start believing in it. The state sponsored violence against Tamils in the 50s, 60s and 70s, long before the LTTE came into existence is a figment of one’s imagination?? Which planet are you living in?

      To compare the situation in Ceylon (that is how the country was called at the time of independence) at independence with Apartheid South Africa shows a lack of simple political analysis or simple ignorance. Pre-independence Ceylon was run by the British, they were in charge and everything was done to benefit the British. The locals, Tamils and Sinhalese were treated as second class citizens in their own country of birth. That is how colonialism worked. In Apartheid South Africa, white South Africans of both Afrikaner and British heritage ran the country to their own benefit, just like the British did in pre-independence Ceylon. To compare Tamils who had no political power in pre-independence Ceylon with the hegemonic political rule of white South Africans in the Apartheid era is simply ridiculous, even a 10 year can do a better analysis.

    A uni-dimensional narrative, that telescopes an unfortunate Tamil history with its wounds- both externally and internally inflicted, though the degrees may vary- and ignores the LTTE role in precipitating the tragedy that was the last Eelam war. A war that was the end result of a saga of LTTE perversity and blindness to the evolving reality. It was a Hara-Kiri of sorts, that threw the Tamils to the Sharks!

    This is the flip side of a rather sad history of Sri Lanka -narratives that justify and sanitize the past, at the expense of finding possible and workable solutions for the future. Both parties to the conflict are afflicted with the same cursed disease. Both parties continue to respond to the whistlers and hooters from the gallery, as it used to be in Sri Lankan film theaters, than seek and do what is right and what is possible for a long suffering people.

    you say “7th anniversary of Mullivaghzhal, in which thousands of innocent lives were lost – massacred in cold blood”

    First, how would you describe over 100,000 Sri Lankan citizens who were blasted to pieces by suicide murdering Tamil Tigers for over 30 years? How were they massacred by your sacred Tamil terrorists?

    Second, do you think the Mullivaghzhal “massacre in cold blood” would have happened if there was no Tamils terrorism? Did you warn the LTTE of such consequences? if not why?

    Third, did you want the LTTE terrorism to continue for ever? How did you escape this “cold blooded massacre”?

    Answer my questions. If not you are a coward writing nonsense.

    Every time terrorist Tamils like you write trashy remembrances, my blood boils, reminding me of terror the LTTE murderers inflicted on innocent Sri Lankans.

      If there has been no Sinhala Only Act, no one-side 1972 constitution, and worse burning of the Jaffna Library with the support of scum ministers and a recalcitrant regime, and if your sinhalese bastards didn’t rape and murder tamil girls, the Tamils wouldn’t have resorted to arms.

      Why is it that you never write about the years the Tamils had negotiated peacefully to settle the grievances but when scums enter into agreements and tear them off later, and continue to rape and murder innocent girls, no decent human will keep quiet. When there is no protection from the govt against animals like you and what I gather from your writing is you must be a compulsive rapist or you don’t differentiate between your mother and sister that your blood gets heated up, then it is good to blow up a few. You pathetic coward, you must be a serial rapist and murderer to spew your nonsense.

      You can continue with your tirade or comment sensibly, and even if I don’t agree with you my comments will be civil. For you it is “trash” raping and murdering girls/women and that shows what kind of respect you have for your mother, sister and even your daughter. So a scum like you don’t need to lecture us.

          You are absolutely a sad case indeed! You have been told repeatedly as to what constitute Tamil grievances. The fact that the Tamils of Sri Lanka have been marginalised and mistreated is a universally accepted truth. You have been trying to white-wash this interminably for a long while. It is about time you should accept that, the table has changed and the Tamils will achieve justice politically and demographically. You can brand the likes of Jansee as LTTE terrorist etc, but it will have no effect whatsoever. You need to come to terms with the following:

          There are three nations in Sri Lanka; two in effect since Kandian kingdom is no more
          There are two languages; three including English
          There is clearly identified tamil speaking demography
          The Sinhala have miserably failed to build a nation of subjects
          A nation cannot be built with majority arrogance

        You need to care about my blood boiling. You know why? without the support of the majority the terrorist and separatist Tamils are not going to gain anything.

    you were perfectly right in your last article- the vote should have been `no confidence` slot but it was not there.- this time referendum ; out with political governance in with cooperation CEO imported to run 21 million peoples with living wages for all. no to socialism but yes capitalism.
    but this one is a bit of understandable desperation.It will take long for the s**t house to crumble because they are spoil sports a very special specialty..

    “”India may justify its shameful support to Sri Lanka, but did it consider the innocent casualties caused by its counterblow?””

    Why did Northern Tamils decide to seek Indian support(thinking TN is all India (only 40 seats)?) for a Malaysian Hydrocele?
    The IPKF of the north is full of casualties they are telling their children and grandchildren.- you bite the hand that fed you and want justice??
    Prabakaran agreed he did it and of course for a fee.
    War there are no rights and heroes only the ones left.

    “”A Tamil expression goes, “A realist has many enemies”. We can’t stop communicating the reality, just because it doesn’t please or satisfy some. On that basis, we should look at what has been going on since 1948.””

    Being in a dry zone why didn’t idiots not move into the rest of the country and amalgamate in the first instance- 10% only (but hardly 4% up dry north)? Too much pride has stolen your way of life while immigrants Muslims are ruling the roost with just about 10 %. At least be – just sensitive.

    Intelligent hardworking Basque people give France and Spain the middle finger because their unemployment is almost zero- from high tech to farming, wine the Pyrenees and the ocean.
    They don’t shout about language Euskara but learn it their way the same way middle class Anglo Saxons learn Latin.

    A little over 50% Tamils have done it but you are the thorn in the block supressing their goodwill. You love Ghettoes don’t you?? We can’t have ghettoes anywhere in the world it name is `TheTroubles` like Ireland and Eelam- gun and justice at the end later on like sadu sadu sadu appe Scotland when you are nowhere to the Scots nor are the Sinhalese.

    Tamils need at least something and that something comes easily if they live with the rest of society than clustered in the north. There are many past nations in the world. The Muslims got 1 million sq. kilometres of Hindustan.
    “”Tamils living outside their homeland, the North and East were violently and legally targeted. Tamils were chased back to the North and East from places like – Kataragama, Tissamaharama, Matara, Galle, Kalutura, Panandura, Colombo and suburbs. “”

    It’s when the 10% overall but stupid demala up north (1%) opened his elephant mouth boasting to high heavens. Even in 1983 the homes of Colombo 7 Tamils remained untouched- Sinhalese have not been that bad after all you even got your free ride to the West No?

    Socialism ends when others money end.

    “”Sir Isaac Newton – “To every action, there is always an equal and opposite reaction” “”

    That is just part of it only. “To every action, there is always an equal and opposite reaction except in so far as it is compelled by a third force.

    Tamil you need humour to see the importance: reality of living.

    Make no mistake; Obama Hussain’s Lankawe, is right under Yankee boots courtesy the all-weather Muslim right.

    “For both the President and the Prime Minister, this path is ultimately self-destructive. The benchmarks were set higher for them.”

    Pres is a school dropout and together they are wisdom of the foolish- like fools all day long and leave the rest to the heavens.
    Even Ambassador Athul’s loving it- his benchmarks are higher than shrill Sharma’s.

    Even India’s $1.5 Billion is not enough to rescue Lankawe back to indian fold.
    Another 2.2 to +3 bonds due soon. Bad Chinese debt is 8 billion.
    Yankees print money and only they can- so there is trouble for `The Troubles`

    Kirubaharan, Thank you. Small point. even in Tamil, Bombay onions are Periya Vengayam (Big onions). I do not think the Sinhalas can be blamed for that.

    Burning Issue: The Anglican schools were by the British (St. John’s, Chundikuli and all CMS schools). The Methodist schools were also by the British (Hartley, Central). The Americans had Jaffna College, Udupiddy American Mission, Drieberg College and Uduvil. The Catholics (not from any particular country but with missionaries from the Vatican, Ireland, Goa and other countries) had St. Patrick’s, St. Henry’s and the numerous Convents. All missions put in an almost equal share.

    These are the A-grade schools that I have mentioned. There were many village schools also. The Americans’ greater contribution was in running a large number of Roman Catholic village schools, mainly Franciscan I think, that were in ruins after the Portuguese left. These were revived by the Dutch and then abandoned. I think 64 of these became American Mission Schools.

      Thanks for the information; I always thought that SJC was established by the American Missionaries! I have read the biography of William Wilberforce who championed the abolishment of the Slave Trade. He also argued for allowing missionaries into the indian subcontinent because rightly or wrongly he thought that some Hindu practices were barbaric and primitive. However, the purposes of the missionaries to spread the gospel and convert people to their respective denominations. Such missionaries were all over the country and not confined to North and East to educate the Tamils!

        Complain, complex, no compliment, complexion, contention….

        One gets converted officially at Church but not at a school which is run by brothers/sisters in education.
        conversions are for personal, various reasons of faith.

        The converted try to mimic that life but most don’t go that far on it. Education and discipline imparted is for the higher challenges of life nationally and internationally not politically motivated as at lankawe university.
        Pay a small fee get all facilities at school and no conversion- most of us did. dentistry medicine, boarding lodging, boys town for the problem. – they were built to teach as wanted by Carlos 1/Charles V Emperor of Rome . Leuven the oldest close to his birthplace.

      For a political reason, in 1987 the JVP publicly announced the name change to Red Dhal and Big Onions. This endorsed by anti-Indians, Premadasa and Athulathmudali.

    Kiruba has updated his Profile pic..He now looks like the Yahapalana Gay Mangalan.. Doesn’t he ….

    Thamizas from the North migrated to the South ,or the landed ones who didn’t want to migrate sent their children to the South,got educated , bought properties and established themselves in the juicy parts of the capital Colombo.

    All seaside land were totally in the hands of the Thamizas from Mt Lavinia to Kopletty, plus the leafy suburb of Kurunduwatta,

    Colombo 6 was totally colonized in to an exclusive Wella Gardens.

    With Mr Pirahaparan creating the free passage to Asylum, most of the Colombo Thamizas became Economic refugees.

    Today there are 2 Million of them in the West, with an average income around USD 50,000 per annum.

    It is true that some of them sold their seaside properties at bargain basement prices, because of the hurry to get asylum.

    All those properties were bought by the Wahabis and they have now become Millionaires as a result of the huge Capital gains.

    But the Southerners have gone from the pan in to the fire.

    They never had any properties in Colombo.

    They didn’t have any even in Akuressa or Akmmemana.

    Now they don’t have jobs either, thanks to the Yahapalanaya, which was imposed on them by the UNP London . Suren Surendran and the West.

    Kiruba is a close friend and associate of Suren.

    So what is he winging about.

    Pirahaparan put Suicide Jackets on youngsters and kept their parents as sand bags.

    Why do you blame us poor Southerners now.

    Bodhi Sira told Abe, that there are 12000 Acres of Thamiza land which he has ear marked to be given back when he goes back home..

    Now all those must be with clear titles and no caveats .

    Just imagine how much would that be worth now, even in the Yahapalana depreciated LKR.

    Kiruba and his mates in the Diaspora must donate all their blocks to war widows and the poor if there are any under Vella CM..

    And get ready to watch the Yahapalan Hybrid Courts proceedings, when Batalanada Ranil and Mangalan send the brave Army Boys to the dock, to bow down to the Hybrid Judges, and listen to the life sentences which will be announced in English.

    Kiruba and his mates then can have Champers without even having to ask anyone, what the verdicts are.

    S.V. Kirupakaran,

    Vey well presented with facts.
    Yes indeed, the successive SL Governments and Southern opposition parties are deceptive since 1947.

    International community failed the minorities of SL in many ways particularly the British and the Indians since 1948.

    British Empire and American Imperialism are being replaced by Chinese Empire.
    The worse is yet to come. After Indira Gandhi there is no strong leader emerged in India. SL will continue to be manipulated by East Asian powers.

    Imagine if MaRa Bros & Co comes back to power with the help of the armed forces and with behind the scene backing by Chinese diplomacy , sure the minorities will be finished or will be 3rd class.

    Remember both China & Russia have veto powers at the UN.

    SVKirupakaran, may I add one more important fact to your write up. That is during the riots in 1959 loads of Tamils in Colombo were put on ships by the SWRD government and sent to Trinco, Point Pedro and Kankesanthurai harbours.
    SWRD & his government strongly believed they will be very safer in their home provinces of N & E. Many students from Ananda, Royal, Wesley, Colombo Hindu, St Thomas and other Colombo Schools found places in NE schools and many of them left Socialist NonRepublic of SL by 1972/73.

    Now with army occupation of NE since 2009 and with Governors of N & E having more power than the Chief Ministers ,
    there is no proper civilian governance there even in their home provinces.

    One day Tamil Eelam will be free. Then the entire Sri Lanka/singhala nation will be branded as a genocidal-pariah state by the international community.
    You never know, Sri Lanka might even go through a name-change again to re-brand itself in a world where soft-power will be the super-power.

        Hamlet, that is one option. It was suggested back in the days (I hear), but the collective Tamil-ego did not want to part of the Indian identity.

        Like it or not, a world-wise/realpolitik-smart/very-left-leaning Tamil diaspora is shaping the political aspirations of the Tamils in the homeland. The reality is that Tamils are not interested in a sovereign state anymore,specially after 2009. Military power of LTTE may have helped Eelam Tamils to shape their hard-power identity but if you pay close attention to the post-2009 Tamil diaspora, soft-power is being heavily exercised to strengthen the Eelam Tamil identity.
        Few eg: Eelam Cinema scene, rise of independent Eelam Tamil artists, Sports orgs like Tamil Eelam Football Association & Tamil Eelam Cricket, etc..

        This is a ‘war’ Sri Lankan government cannot win, to earn some brownie points, SL gov should atleast devolve powers/create a federal Tamil Eelam. Brownie points are important ;)

      “I forgot to mention. Now they want to come again , this time legally under EAFT agreement.”

      When your ancestors arrived in this island did they have valid passport residence visa or work permit, over centuries?

      Could you check your DNA and find out where exactly your ancestors originated in South India. .

      “Our Colombo Commerce Chamber blokes have already reserved 100,000 jobs for them which they reckon our local boys and girls can’t do.”

      Are you still living in your little bunker mindset. The world has moved on, moving on, and will move on. You will be left out of the progress and development that would benefit the people especially the Dalits.

      Now it seems you don’t want them to progress, you must be a typical Govi Vellala.

    This narrative, like many before, has several inaccuracies owing to the traditionally poor historical approach of Tamil nationalism to political events. It is of little use to go into those details here.

    Granting that the case is that the Tamils have been cheated by non-Tamils, what did the people who are supposed to look after Tamils do?
    Did they not lead the Tamils up the garden path for even longer?
    Tamils have no control over what leaders of other communities do. Should they not start with questioning what their leaders continue to do?

    Kirubaharan has put the travails of Tamils in a nutshell.

    Most Tamils are Hindus.

    Even Hindu shrines are being/were slowly “converted” into Buddhist places of worship – one example is here:-

    Dear KIrubaharan,

    The Tamil problem belongs to the Tamils.

    TNA’s politics is appeasement continues shamelessly, still saying unitary, united, undivided Sri Lanka, after all the history of deceit, pograms and massacres. Still promising us with Nambilkal, Nambikai, whilst colonisation, buddishism and sinhalanization, rape, torture, murder, land grab continues under the jack boot of the army.

    Why don’t they understand that a home grown solution is never going to be possible, they need to stand up for the Tamil people and for the Tamil nation and tell the international community and engage them and demand that the UN conduct a referendum as per the Vaddukkoddai resolution, to resolve this long drawn ethnic problem, once and for all.

    If they still refuse to understand the problems of the past, present and the future, and continue to fool us, God help us, or should we wait for the IC to replace TNA?

      There is a contradiction in your comment.

      You say that “The Tamil problem belongs to the Tamils.” and then “demand that the UN conduct a referendum as per the Vaddukkoddai resolution, to resolve this long drawn ethnic problem, once and for all.

      If you believe that Tamil problem blongs to the Tamils, then why you ask the UN to conduct a referendum?

      Show a single document where Vaddukkoddai resolution call or even refer to the UN?

      A history cannot be someones imagination.

      Rudrakumaran’s organisation is budiling castles in the air.

      Do remember that even, Pirapaharan agreed to consider a solution within united, unitary and undivided Sri Lanka.

      Double check this with Rudrakumaran.

      Ignorance is the cause of fear.

      Just because of 30 years of Vaddukkoddai bloodshed the administration will not change a thing for about 1% of population- not even the UN, definitely not the USA or India..

      When we live, let us live like we always did.
      Speak the majority language and get along though it alone is not an international language- if the Basque ETA can why can’t surttu tamils?

    Justice ,
    Are you making up stories or concocting the history to suit your imagination?? Come on !!
    Srilankan history and the religions had been fabricated to please the Racists over and over again.

    Like your views above says it all how stupid and ignorant you are in the way of spreading lies of our Srilankan ancient history which can never be erased off the face of the earth .

    You think the lies you have written here will be taken seriously by any learned Srilankan?? Let alone the empty headed Racists who were born with animal genetics! Remember ! Sinhale!!!!
    Your kind started it ?? Now face it ANIMAL!!!

    The animal in question can only survive drinking blood. Can never make any intelligent decision let alone ruling a country successfully,

    Failure ! Failure ! Failure ! Since the independence!!

    The UNHRC is expecting a progress assessment on the last UNHURC resolution in June 2016.

    There is practically no progress in war crimes and disappearances’ inquiry because SL does not have the skills.

    The soldiers have not left NE as promised and about 96% Tamil civilian land is not yet handed back.

    Reconciliation is at a standstill as the Sinhala offenders have not even apologised the offended Tamils on genocide and damage for the past 67 years of political deception and military oppression.

    The message is ver5y clear. SL will NOT implement the UNHRC resolution.

    The UN must take steps to implement the full UNHRC resolution in a manner they did in East Timor.

    The reasons deceptions Continue because of our Tamil leadership. TNA should be disbanded and new young Tamil leaders who can fluently speak Sinhala language like Raviraj should emerge with a new party untainted from the past. TNA was created by LTTE which is still banned all over the world, why continue with TNA. The current Tamil leaders like Sampanthan, Mavi, C.V and Sritharan will take us nowhere. We should have charismatic leaders who can effectively deal with Sinhala leaders and its people. The international community’s understand the problem and want to help but by carrying Tiger flags by the Tamil diaspora in the west is not going to help. First, Tamils need to discover a flag (other than a Tiger flag) for Tamil identity in the west. Tamil diasporas have to put their Tiger past behind and their mere political power in the west will automatically help their cause in Sri Lanka if the right leadership emerges there. For Sampanthan and Mavi time has come to retire. Sumandran can be a good leader if he can be flexible with his tone. He got some flags recently in Sri Lanka and Australia. If Tamils can’t make these changes, the status quo will continue forever !!!

      Firstly disband your self and then the Racists elements in and out of the Parliament before trying to correct the others .

      That’s why I call it low IQ!! among the so called animal genes!!
      There are no smart politicians thus we would not have been in this position after 70 long years of Independence.
      All the incurables should be ousted first.

      Choose young intellects with honesty and integrity to rule our Nation , not the present day Idiots from the jungles with the motive of Robbing our nation only nothing else.

    Mr.Kirupakaran

    While agreeing to most of your statements in your article SRI LANKA’S DECEPTION CONTINUES, I wish to add further to your article and question some of the points raised by you.
    The defeat of the LTTE and the massacre of several thousands of Tamil civilians were fully supported by the International community for their own motives. Britain and America were in the list too. Many Indian Tamils blame the Congress party for extending help to Sri Lanka to defeat the LTTE. The LTTE too made several mistakes while fighting the Sri Lankan Army. While in its military strength, it could have created a political scene to bring about a settlement to achieve most of the demands of the Tamils. The political wisdom was lacking and more or less failed.
    One of my firm and important question is to why are the Tamil diaspora groups and the Tamil parties in Sri Lanka are not united under one banner to fight for the cause of the Tamils. The Tamil politicians in Sri Lanka are not united under one banner to take up the Tamil cause but are divided with their own party flagship. The TNA has one agenda and supporting the government, The provincial council has a different agenda and it seems Mr.Wigneswaran is going to form a political party and Anandasangaree along with Devananda formed a new political party. All these leaderships are bent on keeping their political party’s name intact and not interested about the Tamil cause. If that is so, why blame the Sri Lankan Government. We have to blame ourselves.

    It is well known and a knowledgeable fact that the Sinhalese will never settle the political grievances of the Tamils. NEVER I SAY NEVER. The Tamils in Sri Lanka are not going to have Tamil leaders like Chelvanayagam, G.G.Ponnambalam, Vanniyasingam and Sundralingam. They too made several mistakes but were sincere and honest towards the Tamil people.
    The war has ended and the genocide committed by the armed forces is forgotten, even by our present Tami leadership, except that only Mr.Wigneswaran, without any power, honestly shouts here and there without results.
    The militarisation prevailing in the North and East, even after the war ended is a challenge to the Tamil people and intimidates the minority group. The recent incidents in the North between the Chief Minster and the Governor and in the East between the chief minister and the navy personal are clear examples. The government intends to subjugate the Tamils by keeping the security trio in the North and East and alow them to interfere in civil matters. The people of North and East, who, according to the government, were rescued by the military in a ‘humanitarian operation’ find their lands, with it, their livelihood, way of life and birth right snatched from them by the self same military. Yet Mr.Sambanthan raises the lion flag twice and attends the Independence day celebrations along with his poodle Sumanthiran. Does he feel that the Tamils have got their freedom?

      When others summarize it, you people don’t like to accept.

      It is different tribes with specific roles in the society that Tamils are made up of. Only common factor is Tamil. While they speak every language in the world except Hindi and sinhala, they call them themselves Tamils. Because, if not they are divided along the CASTE LINES and fool one another.

    Kirubaharan has missed the important point in his article.

    Today is the 35th anniversary of burning Jaffna public library by Sri lankan state terrorists. Minsters and government forces.

    It was burned on 31st MAY 1981.

    The cultural genocide of the Tamils as witnessed in the destruction of the Public Library of Jaffna comes into this, especially because it was set on fire by the government forces, accompanied by two government ministers.

    As it was mentioned above – in June 1981, one of the biggest libraries in Asia, the public library of Jaffna was set on fire, destroying important documents of the evidence of Tamil history – more than 97,000 volumes of books and manuscripts ended-up in ashes. On the other hand discrimination/standardisation in Education also began; introducing what has been described as a form of apartheid system.

    People with high IQs ( the likes of Amarasiri) very active in this forum are expert dodgers. Very adept at diverting what the article is all about and drag the discussion in a completely different direction. What is now in vogue to the likes of Amarasiri is ‘IQ’. I humbly requests the likes of Amarasiri not to divert the subject at hand, perhaps with high IQ could at least propose useful tips to solve our country’s issues.
