Sinhala Colonization Continues: Namalgama In The North

The blatant abuse of power by the Rajapaksas to score votes in the South has prompted further escalation in the Sinhala colonization in the North – JVP MP Vijitha Herath has informed in parliament yesterday that a large number of families from Hambanthota have been given away lands and resettled in the North.

According to MP Herath a land area of one acre has been given to every family that was resettled in the North from Hamabanthota and this village has been named as ‘Namalgama’.

MP Herath who disclosed these facts during his statement at the debate on 2015 budgetary allocations for the Ministries of Defence and Law and Peace, had pointed out that these actions are being carried out to gain political mileage against the backdrop of the upcoming Presidential elections.

Speaking further he had stressed on the importance of establishing and reinforcing land rights in the Northern Province, emphasizing on the ‘Namalgama’ incident as a case in point.

The Rajapaksas have been using the land in the Northern Province according to their whims and fancies particularly in their voter bribery projects. This fact was further highlighted by Northern Province Chief Minister CV Wigneswaran when he wrote to President Rajapaksa earlier last month explaining the decision made by the Board of Ministers of the NPC to boycott a development meeting organized as part of the President’s visit to Jaffna. He had criticized the giveaway of land permits to some 20,000 persons by the President, pointing out he was not consulted nor informed of this decision at any point despite him being the Minister in charge of lands in the province.

      Quite. Wilpattu must remain a protected national park, and the illegals must be forced to move back to their hereditory homes in the north.

        Today I happened to read that the man -GENERAL SF who really really sacrificed his life for the civil war against LTTE terror is being treated as if he is the last to this day by the rulers. This alone would work as a the curse for the bankrupsy of Raja soon. If anyone would against SF and his sacrifices – who is not a human. Anyway, what I hav ebeen telling in a world filled with criminals and all abusive men and women.

    How about Tamil colonization of Colombo?

    Sinhala villages like Kotahena and Wellawatta have been converted to Tamil Nadu villages.

      Fathima,

      Have some sense for a change! Of course, no Tamil will object to the Sinhala moving into the North & East by their own will just like the Tamils did for economic reasons. Even you can see that, no one financed and built villages for the Tamils in the South! Why don’t you see the blatant attack on the demography by the state and recklessly caring two hoods about the sentiments of the minority Tamils?

        Burning Issue,

        Hordes of Tamils have moved to Colombo with the assistance of other Tamils and not on their own accord. That is assisted colonisation. See it this way: to balance Tamil assisted migration, the Sinhalese will have to move to the North, East or wherever it is necessary, assisted or not assisted. You need not like it but it is there birth right. The land historically was inhabited by Sinhalese and they will live wherever they wish to. Demography has changed in the Western and Central Provinces with Tamils encroaching. Houses were built and large scale migration of hordes of Tamils (from Tamil Nadu) eventuated in the Central and Northern Provinces. All you talk about is Tamils and their sentiments and rights as if nobody else lives on this planet. What’s more; Sinhalese migration into Northern Province will reach 50% of total population by 2025. That’s 50/50 Ponna, Sunda and Chelva asked for, wasn’t it?

          I know you have nothing constructive to say!

          “Hordes of Tamils have moved to Colombo with the assistance of other Tamils and not on their own accord.”

          Please provide evidence to support your above statement. You cannot include instances of family members helping families. The Sinhala of course do the same. What you need to show here that there was an organised endeavour to colonise the south by the Tamils. If you cannot do this, you need shut up.

            The presence of hordes of Tamils in Colombo, Uva and Central province has a bearing on the local Sinhala culture and Demographics have changed due to their presence. You are finding excuses for the justification of encroachment by Tamils and deny the birth right of Sinhalese to settle on their sacred land of Rajarata.
            Will you accept 40% Sinhala population (same as Tamils in Colombo) in Northern Province if it takes place without an “organised endeavour”(40% by 2025 is the target and easily achievable)
            One more thing; the days some people thought they can dictate terms were short lived, in the past. Time to wake up and pull your head in!

              Lal writes: “the birth right of Sinhalese to settle on their sacred land of Rajarata”

              Is Rajarata in Orissa?

              “Will you accept 40% Sinhala population (same as Tamils in Colombo) in Northern Province if it takes place without an “organised endeavour”

              Sinhala population will only reach 40% through forced colonisation, eviction of Tamils and other acts of ethnic cleansing (which will go nicely with the mass execution of tamil civilians done in 2009). It will not occur through natural means of sinhalese paying face value for property unless the Arabs give the sinhala maids working in the Middle East a massive pay rise.

              “One more thing; the days some people thought they can dictate terms were short lived, in the past. Time to wake up and pull your head in!”

              I take it your head is firmly in the sand as you seem unaware of western-led UN human rights investigation currently underway along with SL’s annual humiliation at UNHRC to follow afterwards. But you are the same imbecile who thought Subramanyam Parameswaran was eating hamburgers on the sly before we had to point out to you that he got awarded compensation from the British courts

              i have to agree with Lal.You can’t live in sinhala areas and expect sinhalese not to live in tamil areas.Nobody is going to go and live in the north when there is no government assistance to help them.

              If the western province has a certain percentage of tamils,then the northern province also should have the same percentage of sinhalese.

              Any srilankan should be able to live anywhere in srilanka.

                Shankar writes: “You can’t live in sinhala areas and expect sinhalese not to live in tamil areas.Nobody is going to go and live in the north when there is no government assistance to help them”

                Is the idea of a Tamil majority province such a terrifying idea that it must never be allowed? Did Tamils get assistance from SL govt to move into western province or are you accepting that the SL govt is basically a sinhala govt and must only assist 1 community? You are expecting minorities to agree to this as if they have no self-worth themselves?

                “If the western province has a certain percentage of tamils,then the northern province also should have the same percentage of sinhalese.”

                You have not told us the rationale behind this? Are you suggesting moving Tamils and Muslims into Southern Province because it is too overwhelming sinhala and a lot of Mahinda Rajapaksa vanity projects are being launched there or does this traffic only occur 1 way because allowing minorities basic rights to govern locally is basically a massive threat to national security? Then you are wondering why overseas Tamils are waging an all-out campaign to undermine Sri Lanka internationally which is why Mahinda was banned from entering Oxford Uni campus and is now facing UN investigation.

                “Any srilankan should be able to live anywhere in srilanka.”

                Yes with their own money and resources. Using the SL govt to follow a sinhala buddhist ethno-facist agenda and plant sinhala settlers in minority areas is one of the reasons the civil war started in the first place but apparently ignoring history and repeating the same mistakes in the hope of a different outcome is a sure path to success according to you.

                  Your numerous comments in this article which seems dear to your heart reminds me of a guy who went into a restaurant and asked the waiter whether he serves crabs.The waiter replied “please sit down sir,we serve anybody”.Similarly i also have to reply to anyone regardless of whether they are a crab or not.

                  “Did Tamils get assistance from SL govt to move into western province”

                  Assistance can be given by the government for those who need it.Tamils who came to colombo did not need that assistance.the sinhalese who go to the north need that assistance.these are poor sinhalese who think they might escape the poverty trap.

                  “You have not told us the rationale behind this?”

                  you are asking for the rationale for what i said that the northern province should have the same percentage of sinhalese as the percentage of tamils in the western province.I thought it would have been plain as a pikestaff except for dim bulbs like you.Do you want me to explain what percentages are.If someone gives you a banana you will want them to peel it also and put in your mouth.

                  many sinhalalese,and i mean here ones who are friendly with tamils constantly grumble that the north does not have sinhalese while the colombo has so much tamils etc.It is good for the tamils to rectify this situation and get the good sinhalese also onto their side one day.The racist elements in the sinhala society and tamils should be isolated by moderate elements,by both banding together.

                  “Are you suggesting moving Tamils and Muslims into Southern Province because it is too overwhelming sinhala “

                  it gets difficult even to serve a crab,but what to do ,as a waiter i have to serve everybody.Wherein i have stated about the southern province,if as you say tamils are relocated there by the government then the sinhalese will tell that since north and east which the tamils claimed as their traditional homelands are already having sinhalese in sufficient numbers,then the tamils will have to be sent to tamilnadu.The poor indian tamils will be the first to feel the pressure.Are you trying to make the situation better for the tamils or worse?try to find the correct balance between the two communities so that they can live harmoniously this century unlike the last one and not make stupid demands that will exacebate the situation further.

                  “Yes with their own money and resources.”

                  you say that any srilankan can live anywhere in srilanka with their own money and resources.when srilankan taxpayers pay tax to the government and the government uses that to assist srilankans then isn’t that money their own one being given back to them.

                  When you went to canada or whatever to relocate and live among the whites did you not get dole etc from the canadian taxpayer.Did you tell them “look i don’t want your money,i’am a proud tamil who always paid and bought property in colombo when we relocated.”

                  PS.Please don’t bring stupid arguments by trying to defend the indefensible.Please have some compassion to the waiter who has to even serve crabs.Time is precious and i can’t waste it on people who have no sense of fairness.

              Who gave the Sinhalese (believed to be migrants from North India) the birth rite to Rajarata? Where has it said that Rajarata is a Sinhala land? Rajarata was ruled mostly by the Tamil kings. Where the hell is it said that Rajarata was ruled by the Sinhala kings? Can you show evidence to prove your claim? Even your own Mahavamsa does not talk about any Sinhala kings at Rajarata.

            Terror Government of Sri Lanka have been shelling and bombing, burning, looting and raping the Tamils from 1956.

            The idiots who talk about Tamil colonisation pretend not to understand the difference. Tamils bought every single property in Colombo and other areas with their hard earned money.

            They would have preferred to live and work in the Tamil areas, if the Administration was de-centralised, so that there would be job opportunities available for them. The system in Sri Lanka is such even to get a passport or to undergo some medical procedures, they have to come to Colombo.

            Don’t pretend that you do not understand this simple truth. It is a pity you have to write something to defend your “pay masters” even though you know that your argument is based on false allegations!!!

            @Thalaivar, are you endorsing VP by having his pseudonym as yours? Additionally, Tamils bombed Sinhalese? Correction, the LTTE, who happened to be from the Tamil community bombed Colombo and other Sinhalese dominated areas, where whoever happened to be there died, that means all (Tamils, Sinhalese, Burghers, etc). This was in retaliation for the bombing of Tamil areas by Sinhala dominated military (don’t take this out of context as I do not support this, but it was LTTE’s view what I am stating here). Also the wonderful military outfit back in the early 90s’ filled tar barrels with feces (human/animal) and air dropped them in the north, it is sickening to see the behaviour of an official military to behave in this manner, this was done to spread diseases. Do you think, it was ok for the Sinhala dominated government to do that to their own people (Tamils are Sri Lankans as well)? When an official government approves this behaviour, how do you condemn the behaviour of the LTTE, which is a terrorist outfit? Today, multiple LTTE members are part of this Hambantota gamarala’s party. Why is that you fellows do not talk about that. Karuna Amman, was personally responsible for the murder of unarmed surrendered policemen in the east, my guess is those policemen were Sinhalese/Muslims in majority. Have you forgotten that or are you blind to see that? You have the gall to come here and criticize the Tamils. Also you asked the following: “What if Sinhalese do the same” – yes, they have from 1985 – 2009, they bombed the crap out of the Tamils in the north. Looking at your comments, I see you are spending a lot of time on the http://www.defence.lk website and your knowledge has been accumulated from there. It is just like talking to a Tamil, who spends much of his time on LTTE propaganda websites. Keep your racism towards the Tamils going. The country will move forward!!!!

          What a foolish statement… Even according to Sinhalese history books, there were civilization with kings and queens in Lanka Dheepa before half cast Sinhalese gang (leader had 50% animal genes according to same Sinhalese history books) migrated to Lanka Deepha… Did those 700 gang lead by half animal Vijaya killed all inhabitants in the island to claim the ownership of whole land? Books doesn’t say that..
          What ‘Lal’ type people do is to make opportunity for Gota to rule the country with military power after MR is gone (or killed by Ghota). How old Ghota would be in 2025?

          Burning Issue!

          Lal’s and Fatima’s brains are working simultaneously on a racist foundation. I think they are young and do not know the past and current situation in Sri Lanka.
          I shall explain further to your comments for these two people to understand , if they can. Most of the Tamils settled in the south were for various reasons as Government jobs, businesses and as Colombo is the capital, everyone has to come to the capital. Most of the Sinhalese were uneducated and bent on farming and businesses, Whereas the Tamils who were well educated employed in government services and that was why most of the Tamils were government servants, Lawyers and many others were in Businesses. So they had to settle in the South. There were only a handful of Sinhalese living in the North who had mostly bakeries and they left North during the war.After the war ended what the Rajapaksas are doing is confiscating the Lands belonging to the Tamils and trying to colonize the Sinhalese. The Tamils were chased out of their lands. Under the UN Charter this is a crime against humanity. This is wrong and injustice towards the Tamils. There is no proper Tamil leadership to stop this injustice. The government is engaging the Army to do this work. Tyranny and democracy do not go along together.

            Only a few Tamils in Colombo are professionals. The majority are uneducated yobbos; as a walk around Wellawatte, Kotahena would reveal. The percentage of Tamils in those Colombo suburbs have increased multifold. The once attractive suburbs are now overcrowded mainly due to Tamil migration and construction of illegal, substandard housing. Those Colombo suburbs and others are in danger of resembling “Little India’s” of Penang and Singapore, dotted with vermin infested thosai boutiques. The “hardworking Tamil” is a myth. Majority live on handouts of diaspora. What the Tamils want is not ony a Tamil majority province, but a Tamil only province whilst enjoying the hospitality of the Sinhalese in Colombo. Such a greedy demand cannot be tolerated bearing in mind that Northern province was predominantly inhabited and governed by the Sinhalese. The government should speed up the process of returning the lands of Rajarata to the rightful custodians.

          Readers!
          We are moving back to squire one.Sinhala colonization was one of the root causes for Tamil militancy and terrorism.As a result more than 100000 Sinhalese Tamils and Muslims perished while property worth more than thousand billions dollars lost. The country went backward at least 50 years. Above all millions of people have been dehumanized by the war and the propaganda of extremists. Yet the Sinhalese and the government are not ready to learn lessons because this is a country of idiots.

          What our foolish Sinhalese are doing is nothing but forcing Tamils to unite with Muslims and fight together against the Sinhalese . As Rev. Gnanasara of the BBS is aiding and abetting to turn Muslims into militants and terrorists , the next war that will come some day , will be much worse than the one we had till 2009.
          We are a nation that do not learn lessons.
          We are a nation that can be duped by power hungry Sinhala politicians whose sole aim is to hand the crown over to their sons and daughters.Racism and religion were often used by rulers to get power and remain in power.It is happening today and it will happen till there are fools here.

          Why Tamils choose to live in the metropolis (Colombo)?

          The answers are: escaping the warzone, pursuing basic economic life and transit.

          For many Tamils, the areas outside the Northeastern warzone are comparatively safer places. Whilst disappearances, indefinite detention, torture, etc are a risk in the south, the risks of these are far greater in their home towns and villages in the Northeast (consider the situation in Jaffna, for example, which has been under state control for several years). By the way, the imminence of (Sinhala) violence is referred to as ‘impunity’ by the international community.

          Secondly, following decades of state exclusion from investment, even by the early eighties, the Northeast had little prospect of economic life outside state employment. Which is why, despite, as Prof. Gunesinghe puts it, the period from 1977 to 1983, being described as one of incessant ethnic rioting, large numbers of Tamils remained in the south. Their luck ran out in 1983.

          Yet, there is little choice for Tamils trying to survive today. Attempting to secure a basic economic life, many accept the latent risks of living in the south. Their desperation is heightened by Sri Lanka’s rampaging inflation.

          Then there are those Tamils trying to get out of Sri Lanka, either for safety or to seek employment abroad to support families in the Northeast.

          But with the state administration (travel and other papers), international embassies (visas) and the island’s sole international airport being in Colombo, large numbers of Tamils have come to Colombo and languish in squalid ‘lodges’ or crowd relatives’ homes while they try to arrange their departures.

        Burning issue, What’s the big difference between ‘move by their own’ and ‘move with the assistance of someone’? Only difference is, with ‘the assistance’ poorest of the poor would get a chance to have a homestead. I think that’s good. Only raciest would oppose it. I propose, the Government help Jaffnates to settle in Hambantota. After all that’s how Indian Tamils moves to up country (with the help of the British Raj) and then some of them in the eighties or so moved to Vanni (with the help of NGOs, Red Baana etc) and before that how Malabar Tamils moved to Jaffna (with the help of the Dutch colonials) and etc.

          Do you have a brain? Can’t you see that only colonisations or settlements that GOSL is doing are the exclusive Sinhala only ones. Be it in the South, North or East, only the Sinhala are being settled. Can’t you see this injustice? If one were to point this out, how can one be a racist?

          The GOSL is elected by the Sinhala; GOSL looks after the Sinhala; the minorities do not have any say in what is afoot. Do you call this correct?

      There is difference when people move from one province to another by choice and when people are forcibly settled in another area.

      Lastly, going by you name I doubt you are a true Muslim cos a true muslim who practices Islam the way the Holy Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) preached would understand the very foundation of Islam is about respect for others than your self.. And if you happen to be one, kindly note Muslim’s just like the many in this country races in this country colonized this land that truly belonged to the Veddha’s.

      Then again I firmly believe, good muslims will not make derogatory, hateful comments like you!

      Are you so dumb that you can’t see the difference.
      Which Government helped the Tamils to live in Wellawatte or anywhere in Colombo ?. The Tamils who live in Colombo paid money to buy the properties, whereas the genocidal Govt is giving land taken forcibly from the homeland of Tamils to the Singhalese living in Hambantota.
      There is yet another reason why the Tamils moved to Colombo and the suburbs. The British when they colonized Sri Lanka, then Ceylon, had a highly centralized form of Govt. As the Tamils were more educated than the Singhalese, the British preferred to provide employment to the Tamils and that is the reason why the Tamils moved to Colombo.
      Obviously if there was a decentralized form of Aministration, there would not have been a necessity to move.

    Well, Jaffna was entirely Sinhala not that long ago.

    http://jaffnahistory.com/Northern_Province/Sinhala_Villages_of_Jaffna_1695.html

    What happened? Its a genocide of the Sinhala people. Tamils settling down in Ceylon is ok. The British let in Indians from Uganda for example. Although when the Indians were integrated to the mainstream .

    On the other hand, the Tamils who were brought here were isolated from the mainstream without integration. Not willing to integrate is a problem. Its a further problem when its done at the cost to the native population. The fallout of both were quite evident over last 3 decades I thought.

The simple question is if the Sinhalese were occupying Jaffna, why the hell did they pack all their bags and go to the South leaving their valuable lands to the Tamils?

        Eusense,

        Have the north and east become colonies of the Sri Lankan South? I was under the impression colonial rule ended in 1948 and we became a free people. Have the Tamils been re-conquered? There are rules, laws and procedures to be followed in a free-SriLanka and this applies to the government as well as citizens. Follow these. Do not steal and defraud us in broad day light, in your short sighted madness.

        We are not a conquered people and our land has not been conquered. Only the LTTE was defeated, not the Tamils. We will never become slaves to be arbitrarily dealt with by this government or any other.

        Come and live with us on your own volition and become our good neighbours. But do not come through the back door surreptitiously like thieves to become our tormentors and ultimately our masters.

          RN,
          Colonial rule ended in 1948 for Sri Lanka as one country. There are no “our land” claims exclusively for different races, religions or genders. Tamils have not been re-conquered but Tamils tried to conquer part of Sri Lanka violently killing over 100,000 innocent civilians.
          What are these “There are rules, laws and procedures to be followed in a free-SriLanka and this applies to the government as well as citizens”? What are these rules and who wrote these rules?
          Sri Lankans whether Sinhalese or Tamil should have the freedom to choose anywhere they want to live and no one has the right to stop that. In my mind more Sinhalese moving north is a better way to integrate the two races and be able to learn and understand each other. Most problems stem from lack of communication and socializing of these 2 races. There is no “back door” here. Nobody is forced to move north. Who ever who move are doing so with their on accord.

            Eusense,

            Have you read my comment? I have said, ” Come and live with us on your own volition and become our good neighbours. But do not come through the back door surreptitiously like thieves to become our tormentors and ultimately our masters.” A former civil servant in Jaffna, writing in the ‘Island’ yesterday, has said that many Sinhalese, including bakers have returned to work in Jaffna. The Tamils do not resent this or pobject to this. However, State sponsored and surrepticious attempts to change the demography of the north is absolutelt unacceptable. Namalgamas, Agbopuras or future Shiranipuras, other Rajapaksewattes are absolutely unacceptable.

            Any Sri Lankan citizen is welcome to own property and live in the north, if he comes on his own volition and is not sponsored by the State, which has proven malafide intents. We are all citizens of Sri lanka and we can choose to live anywhere we wish in Sri Lanka.

            However, the Tamils are not living as widespread over the South as before 1983, because they feel yet insecure. They are in Colombo and its environs because of unavoidable circumstances. They are held hostage by their own circumstances, created by the war and its aftermath. I know many citizens live in Colombo because of their health-needs. Younger folk live there because of the employment opportunies. Others live there to provide better educational and extra-curicular activities for their children. But they all live with the subliminal fear that they may be hunted down one day, if the current political trends in the country continue.

            The Tamils largely abandoned the South after the 1983 riots. However, the war and the people friendly approach of Premadasa, made many return.
            Another riot, will make the Tamils run back to the north and east, probably never to return. This would be the ultimate physical, if not political separation of Sri Lanka.

                  I think you totally missed the point. I recall you complaining upcountry Tamils were not given a franchise.

                  Now, those Tamils were’t shipped here with any local consent were they? Although you wanted to keep them there didn’t you?

                  And how do you think your family ended up in Jaffna? It couldn’t have been with any local consent?

                  JAffna Tamils have replaced an entire Sinhala population. And another bunch of Tamils have replaced many locals in the upcountry “surreptitiously like thieves”.. Why do you complain when the reverse happens?

                    Did the sinhalese give written consent to Native Vedda’s ancestors when they landed from Orissa?

                    “Why do you complain when the reverse happens?”

                    If you could read English properly, you would note that Dr Narendran pointed out that if the SL govt shamelessly favours the majority sinhala and treats Tamils and Muslims as interlopers/colonial subjects, then this will do nothing to foster national unity amongst various groups but rather lead minorities to think they are better of forming ethnic-based political groups and constantly asking outside powers to interfere in Sri Lankan affairs (like TNA meeting Modi in Delhi). As Sri Lanka is a tiny nation and not a massive power like Russia or China, it cannot ignore large foreign powers like USA or India because they have the means to make life difficult for the SL govt like UN investigation, sanctions etc.

                    Therefore the SL govt needs to have some brains and realise that shamelessly following sinhala buddhist ethno-fascism is a path to financial ruin and misery.

                    We were a British colony then had no say. We were not free. They were our masters. The poor Indian indentures labour were victims, who were used establish the plantations that yet are one of the mainstays of our economy. The Kandyan villagers who lost their lands were also victims of colonialism. Unfortunately the indentured Indian labour, were once again made the victims of D.S, Senanayake’ s brutal, callous and shortsighted policies in the newly independent Sri Lanka.

                    Do you justify what is happening now in the north and east of independent and supposed to be free Sri Lanka, on the basis of what happened when we were a colony of the British and a subjugated people? Are the new colonial masters of the north?

                    I ended up in Jaffna, because my ancestors to the extent I can trace have lived in Jaffna. This includes the period the Portuguese conquered the Jaffna a Kingdom, after overcoming stiff resistance. Please read the documents in the Colombo museum in this regard. Please also read Baldeus’s book on the Dutch occupation of Jaffna, which also has plenty of interesting and valuable sketches from that period. Read the village names cited in that book ( this refers to your comment and referenceelsewhere). My ancestors have lived in Jaffna and Sri Lanka as long as or more than yours have.

                      But then, did you even begin to consider the well being of the local people displaced, the demography changes etc when you wanted to keep 1,000,000 Tamil people here instead?

                      Although didn’t you straight away start to complain about demography changes in Gal Oya? You are ok demography changes upcountry but not in Gal Oya. Does that not stink of bias?

                      The settling of Sinhala people is the North is done in the context of “re-settlement” i.e. people who were there originally.

                      The settling of Sinhala people is done in the context of settling in govt owned lands that belong to no one.

                      The settling of Sinhala people is done in the context of integration, as its done in Singappre. RE EIP policy.

                      The settling of Sinhala people is done in the context of preventing a re-occurrence of brutal Tamil terrorist insurgency financed, supported by our immediate neighbor.

                      The setting of Sinhala people is done is the context this is Ceylon – Sinhale, the homeland of the Sinhalese. They do not need permission to be settled anywhere in their homeland.

                    Vibhushana you are a top class imbecile so only you would suggest that the SL govt should embark on widespread ethnic cleansing of Tamils in the North whilst being under investigation by United Nations. Also your immediate neighbour has a 1 million-strong army and massive stockpile of nuclear weapons which is why SL govt signed Indo-Lankan Accord as soon as Indian Air Force entered lankan air space to drop food packages over Jaffna. These same Indians are now led by a brutal leader called Modi and not an Italian housewife so only a magnificent idiot would try and provoke his ire.

                    “Sinhale, the homeland of the Sinhalese. They do not need permission to be settled anywhere in their homeland”

                    This land belongs to the Veddah people, everyone who came afterwards was an invader from India. We Tamils are over 70 million-strong spread around the world which is why Sri Lanka will be reduced to economic ruin if it follows your mentally sub-normal thinking.

Let me answer your points. 1.On which basis do you say that I do not read Tamil net? This is an unsubstantiated speculation! 2. Nope, I haven’t read anything even close to the way you criticize Sri Lanka in your posts now. If you are truthful give me a specific link to your criticisms of the VP and the LTTE. 3. Where did I say you belong to a favored elite? For one thing you don’t, and what I did was compared you to a Sinhalese villager in Anuradhapura. You being a Tamil had the chance to educate your self and even go overseas to complete a PhD. Wven today, what chances do you think a villager from Anuradhapura will have on doing so? With all that you call your self “I am a Tamil and a victim..” of discrimination??? 4. You ask “where I got my PhD?” What basic degree allowed you to do a PhD? and from where did you get that basic degree from? Shouldn’t you be grateful to the country that educated you? Why are you trying to hide the truth as if SL had nothing to do with your education? You are not a Tamil victim but an ungrateful Tamil for sure! 5. “I do not now advocate Tamils joining in mainstream national politics”. Apparently you keep changing your stance! That is your prerogative and for that, nobody cares. Only outcome of such a stance will be Tamils never getting anything done in their life time.

                Haha I like this use of the word ‘racist’ by some of the idiots here to justify opposition to land grabbing, military occupation and other ethnic-based actions. These same fools will call Palestinians ‘racist’ for being against Israeli settlements in West Bank. I also like how some of them use Tamil names whilst uttering shamelessly pro-sinhala sentiments. They need to be honest about their ethnic origins instead of deluding themselves into thinking writing with a Tamil name makes their points more valid.

                “Sinhalese have to be assisted to relocate.Why should they leave a better part of the country to live and toil in a dry arid area?”

                Yes because the sinhalese have clearly suffered the most in the last 30 years with their own national govt, army, air force, navy, police etc. They have been the victims since independence whilst devious Tamils used their intelligence to get high paying jobs and brought things with their own money. The sinhalese must be given first priority over every resource and land in the country (with the help of SL army, police and govt) and the Tamils must accept their status as interlopers and be thankful they are not being killed in ethnic riots. This will help Sri Lanka internationally as these devious Tamils and their overseas descendants will clearly not run to India to meet Modi or influence their govts against Sri Lanka at all times to get UN investigations, sanctions etc. The SL govt will obviously send skilled alcoholics like Dr Nonis to counter these Tamils abroad and achieve great success there.

                Shanker,

                The circumstances and intentions count. In this instance and many before , the intention is demographic change, which is not altruistic as you imply. Let them assist the poverty stricken, unemployed and now land slide affected Tamils, to settle down in the north and east and then name the villages in Tamil.. I will bet my last buck the Sri Lankan government will never do this, despite the fact the Kandyans will prefer fewer Tamils to live amongst them. They are much worse off than the folks from Hambantota or in an earlier era prisoners from the a Southern jails! Incidentally, Athureliye Rathana Thera advocates the resettlement of the hill country Tamils in the north and east.

                      Incidentally, his rationale was as follows:

                      1. Many marginal tea estates are being now used for vegetable cultivation and this is causing severe land erosion.
                      2. These lands should be reforested to stop soil erosion and to function as rain catchment areas.
                      3. Many of the Tamils in these estates do not have full employment.
                      4. They are hard workers and know how to grow vegetables and hence will be able to make the arable lands in the north and east productive.

                      He also expressed concern that men like Arumugam Thondaman will resist his vote bank being depleted.

              RN,
              I read your comment and understood it well, but I was soft on you not to comment on what you said. But now let me reply.
              You say; “Come and live with us on your own volition and become our good neighbors. But do not come through the back door surreptitiously like thieves to become our tormentors and ultimately our masters.”
              Are you joking?? Who gave you or any Tamil the right to say, come live with us in the north and how that has to be done? You nor any Tamil don’t own the north. The country including the north belong to all Sri Lankans. Are you so dumb not to understand this simple fact? Be frank with me, what is the underlying real reason for you to resent Sinhalese moving north?
              Who are the type of Sinhalese moving north? They are mostly the businessmen, professionals and skilled workers (due to lack of this category, thanks to your LTTE muting the Tamil youth for over 30 years)and the poor Sinhalese. The Gov. helping the poor to settle down with assistance in my mind is an excellent idea. It serves several purposes. It cultivates barren land, improve lives of the poor and more importantly integrate the Sinhalese and Tamils.
              RN, whether you like it or not the demographics of the country is going to change faster than you think. How many Tamil youth did you say perished because of your own LTTE terror war? How many able Tamils left SL for citizenships elsewhere? Would you agree with me that the Tamils lost the most valuable asset to them because of raising arms? Why are Tamils not talking about that? If you look at demographics of growth rate, within a few decades I expect SL to be a Muslim majority country. If it happens it happens and no amount of violence can stop that.

              This is what you should concentrate on. Forget the past you can’t change the past but you could change the future if you act wisely. Promote integration of Tamils and Sinhalese. Don’t consider Sinhalese moving north as “colonization” but as “integration and assimilation” Advice Tamils to educate them selves, learn Sinhalese, socialize with Sinhalese, migrate south if they have to and improve their lives and future family but not to cultivate hatred towards the Sinhalese.
              What good will it bring for the Tamils by keeping the north ethnically clean? Tamils specially the younger generation will move out of the north to better themselves unless Jaffna becomes the “New York” of Asia.
              As for now you should promote Tamils working with the majority parties not TNA.

                “The country including the north belong to all Sri Lankans. Are you so dumb not to understand this simple fact?”

                Eusense you are an imbecile so you write nonsense about ‘Sri Lankans’ when you actually mean ‘sinhalese’ because Sri Lankan actually means many different races but you are in favour of only moving sinhala settlers up north and not doing anything for displaced Tamils or muslims.

                “helping the poor to settle down with assistance in my mind is an excellent idea”

                It is an excellent idea for you because only the poor sinhala are being allowed this settlement opportunity as opposed to other races. Then you rubber-stamp your idiocy by declaring this a ‘sri lankan’ endeavour

                “and more importantly integrate the Sinhalese and Tamils.”

                Only an imbecile like you thinks moving Sinhala peasants in bulk on pre-cleared land is a ‘recipe for success’ in the same way moving Israelis into Palestinian West Bank is a way of promoting arab-israeli peace.

                “If you look at demographics of growth rate, within a few decades I expect SL to be a Muslim majority country. If it happens it happens and no amount of violence can stop that.”

                Eusense you have stolen this nonsense from the Badu Bolu Sena but because you have less than double-digit IQ, you wanted to expose your massive stupidity for everyone to marvel at.

                “What good will it bring for the Tamils by keeping the north ethnically clean?”

                Haha what is Southern Province? Oh sorry I forgot, sinhala means ‘sri lankan’ according to Eusense so Southern Province is acutally well-integrated. As ‘Tamil’ means ‘terrorist agitator’, Northern Province must be ‘cleansed’ to become ‘sri lankan’

                “As for now you should promote Tamils working with the majority parties not TNA.”

                Has it occured to you Eusense in that dark lonely place where you brain is meant to reside, that if you force sinhala language, settlers, soldiers etc down the throats of Northern Tamils, that they are more likely to get defensive and form Tamil organisations to protect their heritage as opposed to less? But you are the village idiot who thinks Sri Lanka is going to become a muslim-majority state by 2050 so you are beyond help

                No matter how well you embellish your insidious attempt to artificially bastardise the demography of the North and East, it will never sound genuine coming from you. A sinhala like you want to destroy the Tamils as a people, and sinhalaise and assimilate the Tamils in to sinhala. This is what you articulate but rather insidiously!

                This is the way the sinhala know how to win the hearts and minds of the tamil people! Good luck.

                  According to Eusense this process is called becoming ‘Sri Lankan’ because retaining Tamil identity is a national security threat. But apparently this imbecile has worked out that Sri Lanka is going to become muslim majority in the next few decades so this sinhalisation process is ultimately going to be worthless.

              Dear Dr RN
              After the war I expected mass migration of Tamils from Sinhala areas to North and East, but according to a Tamil friend of mine not a single has taken the move. I expected a kind of organized effort led by TNA asking Tamils to go back to North and East in order to counter the effects of the kind of Sinhala migration to North you are talking about where they can live peacefully within their cultural and religious environment. Even clever Mr Sumanthiran did not move house and never will I bet but prefer to live within the barbarian Sinhala Buddhists with that “subliminal fear” and carryout his liberation campaign. Be honest to yourself doctor, it is the subliminal acknowledgment that there is no such thing as “discrimination” the Tamils are bombarding the world about. (This comment applies more to Muslims than Tamils – they will never move to Muslim majority areas.)
              You are saying Sinhalese are welcome if they come the proper way. But can you explain how there is not a Sinhalese in Jafna today who were there before the war.
              Along that logic in case of a “political solution” if Sinhalese demand that all Tamil speaking people must move to the designated Tamil enclave. ( I believe Sinhala Political class is not vocal enough on this point.)

              Doctor, you say
              ” Any Sri Lankan citizen is welcome to own property and live in the north, if he comes on his own volition and is not sponsored by the State, which has proven malafide intents. We are all citizens of Sri lanka and we can choose to live anywhere we wish in Sri Lanka.”
              I say to you
              ” Any Sri Lankan citizen is welcome to own property and live in the South so long as you don’t demand separate ethnic enclaves which will lead incalculable bloodshed till eternity. We are all citizens of Sri lanka and we can choose to live anywhere we wish in Sri Lanka. And kind doctor you can’t have it both ways”

                Soma,

                Thanks. The reasons for the absence of massive reverse Tamil migration are:

                1. The Tamils who migrated South starting 1989, have established their roots there.
                2. The north and east yet lack the social amenities- health care, access to various courses of study and extra curicular activities,they have got used to.

                3. Round the clock electricity became a reality only in early 2013.

                4.Lack of employment opportunies.

                5. lack of money to repair/rebuild their war-damaged houses.

                6. The political uncertainties.

                7. Many who lost their lands to the high security zones and the subsequent army take over, have also settled in the South.

                8.Rule of law is yet not functional to the extent it is even in the rest of Sri Lanka. There is a lot of arbitraryness and war-related break down in social and cultural norms.

                9. The cultural environment not being what it was before the wars. The educated and culured families have migrated and this has left a huge cultutral void, that is manifest in every walk of life.

                10. Last but not least the presence of army camps of various sizes in the midst of the community, until recently, was a major deterrrent.

                I know of my contemporaries who stayed on in Jaffna during many viscitudes, are being requested by their children abroad to move to Colombo, because of the better health facilities available there.

                All in all, despite the massive infra-structural development that has taken place, lfe is yet far from what it should be.

                The choices Tamils can make with regard to where they would like to live are limited. They prefer the north and east, but taking the factors I have listed, cannot live there. They opt to live in Colombo and in its environs, because of the above factors, but yet are apprehensive of their fate, IF a 1983 repeats. Since the antics of the BBS began, this apprehension has multiplied a hundred fold.

                Dear Soma,

                The enclave mentality was forced on the Tamils. I do not know how old you are, but if you are my age or near and had the opportunity travel around widely in Sri Lanka, you would remember the time when Tamils felt at home everywhere in Sri Lanka. The Sinhalese living in the north and east felt the same too. This relationship and inter-communal trust was destroyed by the actions of succsive governments starting with that of D.S. The governments shipped Tamils to the north and east after each riots. These provinces became their refuge and fall back position.

                Tamils, as should be expected, withdrew into their shells and have been reluctant to stretch their necks since. They are now sufferig from a seige mentality. The LTTE fought back also from this platform, but pushed the Tamils further into the hole.

                You say, “Along that logic in case of a “political solution” if Sinhalese demand that all Tamil speaking people must move to the designated Tamil enclave.”

                So be it. We will make the best of what we have and what we can make.
                If the government and those who think like it are unable to recognise historical realities, mistakes and results, and understand they are on the wrong course, this may become the regrettable reality.

                I would prefer a situation where the old status quo can be restored. The course of history must be reversed. Sri Lanka cannot continue to trod a failed and despicable path. The Tamils cannot be won over by coersion. Work to win their trust and confidence sincerely and openly. You will be surprised to see how the Tamils respond.

    What is underhand about assisted migration to their own land? It is a birth right of the Sinhalese to live wherever they choose. The population of Northern Province was mainly Sinhalese until the 14th centur;, when marauding, looters from Tamil Nadu invaded the island. The population mix of Jaffna should reflect the mix in Colombo. What is good for the goose is good for the gander they say. After all the Tamils (Ponna .. …) wanted 50/50, didn’t they? It is happening. JVP has not critised but only highlighted the ‘policy’.

          Did any Tamil speak Sinhala when Sinhala was imposed on them as the only official language of this island by your radala Banda?

          India speaks 780 languages, 220 lost in last 50 years.

          You can chose one of these languages and fit in with your north/south brethren of India.

          “Why do you keep telling our inhabitants to go back to India?..”

          Because they have been real pain. There had been a precedent before when DS made hard working upcountry people stateless and wanted all of them back to whence their forefathers came, in their case Tamil Nadu.

          Let me follow DS and get rid of you lot from this island of ours. Hopefully the island would return to its former glory without your presence. by the way make sure you take your equally stupid Tamil speaking brethren with you.

    Vibushana,
    Sri Lanka was originally a land of tamil people
    Sinhalese people descend from tamils
    Even the famous Buddhist Dalit scholar/politician of India, Dr Ambedkar admitted that Tamil Nagas were the original people of the Indian subcontinent.
    There is also the hypocrisy
    Its ok to label tamils as ‘invaders’ but somehow the ‘father’ of the Sinhala race King Vijaya, landed in Sri Lanka from India and wiped out Kuvenis people and took the Island. Thats apparently ‘not a problem’ according to the Sinhala nationalists.

      You make good points. Despite the arrogance and looking down at Tamils, the Sinhalese are descended of Tamils/Indians, it just had to be. We were part of the India thousands of years ago, and the last King of Kandy had many Tamil connections. That is the reality that many Sri Lankans are ignorant about.

        Core issue here is “History” or “Sinhalese Bhashawa” school text books which teach us the lie “Sinhalese are Aryans” at very younger age……. I too believed that until South Indian origin guy showed me the truth. Actually I argued with this South Indian (IIT PhD holder) that Sinhalese are Aryans and Indians do know nothing about their island neighbour.
        My Indian friend asked me to go and look at a mirror… and read the first chapter of any book on genetics… (unfortunately I don’t have any visible Dutch/Portuguese genetic features, but mainly South Indian Dravidian features like many other Sinhalese : Dravidian means – Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada )

        Eusense: “OK, then we are good. Nobody should worry about this Sinhalese colonization of the north”

        No Eusense only a village idiot will make this conclusion, just like another fool can say that Australians should spend time in a British prison as many of their ancestors used to be convicts in UK jails before being deported Down Under.

        This highly racist action of favouring 1 ethnic group over another is why SL had brutal 30 year civil war but obviously the brain-dead Rajapaksa leadership does not realise this so are busy sowing the seeds of further ethnic discord and strife instead of cooperative economic development.

          Mr.Raj,
          We are all brothers and sisters. We are all the same. Same family. Ask ukg, he is the one who says it. So, we can all live together in Jaffna or anywhere else where we please.
          By the way what is your stupid story about Australians spending time in British jails?
          Are people like you going to be citizens of your separate state in the north? May God bless all Tamils!

            “So, we can all live together in Jaffna or anywhere else where we please”

            Yes Eusense but you have trouble understanding through that very dense and thick skull of yours, that Tamils moving to Colombo and buying up property with their own cash and paying the previous sinhala owners in full and fully voluntarily on both sides, is different from the Sinhala-dominated govt and army forcibly evicting Tamils from their registered land without adequate legal redress or compensation, to plant sinhala settlers. Therefore your nonsense about ‘brothers and sisters’ carries no weight because the SL govt is only helping 1 community and engaging in the same tired formula of sinhala buddhist chauvinism which gave birth to Prabha, LTTE, ethnic division and strife in the first place instead of Singapore-style cooperation.

            “By the way what is your stupid story about Australians spending time in British jails?”

            You are an ignoramus so things only become ‘stupid’ to you if you do not know the true facts behind it. When the British first settled Australia, many of the people they brought over were prison convicts.
            When the last shipment of convicts disembarked in Western Australia in 1868, the total number of transported convicts stood at around 162,000 men and women. They were transported here on 806 ships.

            Go read the Aus govt’s own story about this on their website: http://australia.gov.au/about-australia/australian-story/convicts-and-the-british-colonies

            Therefore when you say brain-dead remarks like sinhala ppl can overrun Tamil areas because they are of Tamil descent, a similar village idiot can say Australians should spend time in prison as they have convict blood running through their veins.

            “Are people like you going to be citizens of your separate state in the north? May God bless all Tamils!”

            As you are a top-of-the-range buffoon, you naturally conclude that any Tamil that takes exception to the SL govt promoting sinhala buddhist ethno-fascism at the expense of other communities must naturally be a terrorist-minded separatist. May God bless your tired and over-worked brain.

            You are welcome to Jaffna. Bring the cash to buy your property. Be prepared to irrigate every single onion, chilly, banana plant manually using the well sweep, or if you have money a water pump. There is not enough rain to water or rivers for your plants.

            Prepared to live like the average Jaffna man with the murderous army, navy, police, douglas’s goondas. Once you become a “Tamil”, the brothers will be watching you and the white van will be ready to pick you up, if you don’t tow their line. The army and police would ask you to hide somewhere and then ask you to run and shoot you. Next day there will be news to say that “A dangerous terrorists who was hiding under the bed was shot and killed by our brave soldiers!! If you are a fishermen, you will be charged with drug trafficking and will be handed a death sentence after three years!
            Are you ready?

            When your children go to school they will not have the luxury of having a “special exam” held, or some one will write it for your child. If they grow up like the average Jaffna kid, they will be liable to be picked up any time and will be given a title of Terrorist. Are you and your family ready to face this?

            One more thing when the “bigwigs” want to enjoy a little bit of excitement they might bomb, shell, experiment with multi barrell launchers. You have to be ready for all this.

      Tamils and their Sinhala/Buddhists brethren are the descendants of kallathonie Indians, mostly from South.

    As AKD clearly points out – they the oligarchs coldbloodely abuse the tax payers funds for their luxuary lives while infants have to survive on the nothing since buying milk powder for them are becoming nightmares to majority of people today. This country is far poor than it is branded to be. You need to see the pictures of the Koslanda to see the realities of the nation. Are they not srilankens ?
    Are those that face the disaster are not srialnkens ?

    After the Rajapaksas are dethroned and eliminated all the places and monuments named after them will be purged of any memory of them. The day that happens is not too far away. The Sinhalese are only now learning about the real Rajapaksas and their motives.

    Tamils fought a war. You lost. We dont have to listen to you anymore. We do what we want, we dont need your permission for anything. If you dont like it here, try your luck at eelam with modi in tamilnadu and see. If you wanted us to listen or respect you should have thought twicw before fighting a terrorist war

      “Tamils fought a war. You lost. “

      Yes because Prabha had 100% approval ratings from Tamils and was supported by all of them without any questions asked. He definitely did not murder loads of elected Tamil politicians.

      “We dont have to listen to you anymore. “

      Yes but you have to listen to countries like India, UK, Canada, USA for nonsense like hosting Commonwealth dramas, attending international events etc.

      “We do what we want, we dont need your permission for anything”

      Yes that is possible but it normally comes with problems like sanctions, economic collapse, travel bans, international isolation etc. like Mugabe’s Zimbabwe. This is because Sri Lanka is a tiny country who can be bullied easily by outside powers like when the Indians were dropping food picnic items over Jaffna in 1987 leading to Indo-Sri Lankan accord.

      “try your luck at eelam with modi in tamilnadu and see”

      The chance to deport all Tamils was missed in 1948 as only some Upcounty Tamils were evicted. I think the SL govt should try and forcibly deport all Tamils to India this time though and see if Modi does anything. Modi is a very gentle and soft person who definitely does not have a reputation for brutality towards Muslims or being a tough operator who his neighbors are fearful of.

      “you wanted us to listen or respect you should have thought twicw before fighting a terrorist war”

      Yes because all Tamils were endorsing the LTTE (except those killed by them) and none of them are allowed to have different political opinions because that is of course impossible.

      I think I can conclude from all your above remarks that you have at least 1 chromosome missing from your genome.

      Yes Tamil fought a justifiable war against oppressive Sinhala state. The war is not ended and it will not end until Tamils reach their destination.Do you know who lost the war? You lost! you are now in the courts of justice of international court. You have been charged with the murder of over 100000 innocent civilians?You lost your independence! you lost your freedom of speech! You are accused of war crime!
      In short, you are a criminal!

      ” If you wanted us to listen or respect you should have thought twicw before fighting a terrorist war”

      You do realize that with that last statement, you just showed just how brainwashed the Sinhalese are? You’re basically proving what every anti-majoritarian has been saying for the past six decades. The tamils did ask for things politely for nearly three decades before giving up and taking the route of violence. But of course, like many things in our country, that gets swept under the rug.

      “The Sinhalese are pure. They are incapable of being wrong or doing wrong. Every problem in this country is someone else’s fault, not ours. Even though we’ve hogged power since independence, it is not our fault. As long as we build enough ports, airports and casinos to cover up for our massive inferiority complex that is the result of a colonial master who left us in 1948, we are the greatest. We are the best. Anyone who refuses is a traitor who is a shame to the mother that bore them” – what I imagine goes through the heads of people like you every time anyone says anything even slightly critical to hurt your childish glass egos. Now reply to me (or dont) with some personal attack, or another piece of propaganda that’s been carefully spoon-fed to you by the establishment. Sheep.

      No wonder the educated are leaving en masse.

      Nishantha that is called ‘ethnic cleansing’ if you are planning sinhala exclusive establishments on confiscated land organised by the SL army in a province dominated by Tamils as opposed to letting sinhala people buy land freely and mixing with their tamil neighbours. But when SL govt is under war crimes probe, it is not surprising that these kind of activities are taking place

    Can any of the Sinhala pundits (Ella Kolla, Sumanasekeram, David Blacker, Jim Shitty and the servant girl Fatshitma) answer one question: you all are so gung ho in living in the north. What are you going to do for a living? I mean jobs? Why do you think the Tamils moved south? If you want Jaffna, take it and the Tamils from the north can take your home in the south. Is that ok? I as a Jaffna Tamil, never had an issue in a Sinhala man moving next door to me out of his own will. Actually it would have brought some peace to the land. But I do not agree with a racist government doing that.

    Americans are not arguing or fighting about who came to US first or who lived longer there. Or even who destroyed the whole aboriginal/red Native Indians !
    Only Lankans are wasting time arguing about past stupid history and using a non-practiced religion, which has become a religion of BBS & terror….
    Just forget it guys…Race & religion is ‘opium’ Do not consume it but get a life..live in harmony with others.
    No land belongs to any single community. It’s all for the people of the world’s community.

    Sinhala, Tamil, Muslim..what’s the big difference ?

    Lankans are living in so many countries now, especially after the pogroms of many many years…
    They are all treated without any prejudice in those adopted countries and they all enjoy all the civil rights there, which is denied in their own country of birth.
    Shameful act of shameless politician and the racist people of Lanka.

    You people are like a frog in the well. Open up your eyes and see the real world for a change.
    See UK, Canada, Australia..and many other nations where so many lankans live in peace and harmony with the inhabitants. They show no animosity.

    Do not waste time here writing garbage but learn to live in peace, where ever you want.

    Do not harass other community or people just because you are in the majority or your ruthless terrorist regime is ruling the country.

    STOP and clean your racist mind set, learn to live with others.
    Lanka is not your sole property.
    Lanka is for all it’s citizen and no one has any right to claim it for themselves only.

    If racist elements continue with their own agenda, no one can stop the country destroying itself…
    People should realize the facts and change their attitude and forget bogus Mahawamsa, get a bit civilized in this 21st century.

    If not the doom may not be avoided. You will ruin yourself…no one will help..
