Sinhala Democrats & The Tamil Fascists

Velupillai Prabhakaran’s brutal violence, firing indiscriminately in all directions, went beyond the mandate of the Vadukoddai Resolution which was aimed exclusively at the Sinhalese. Prabhakaran was the first born child of the Vadukoddai Resolution which urged the Tamil youth to take up arms against the Sinhalese. But his ruthless killing of Tamils reveals how the bullets fired by the Vadukoddai Resolution ricocheted and killed the best part of the Tamil leadership and thousands of Tamil civilians. Above all, the killing of Tamils by Prabhakaran questions the claim of Tamils that he was created by the Sinhalese. If, as claimed, Prabhakaran was reacting vindictively to Sinhala violence to get even with them why did he kill more Tamils than all the others put together? They were his sole source of strength. So why did he bite the hand that fed him? Besides, his mission was supposed to be to protect the Tamils, not to kill them. So was he reacting, with all his fury, to Sinhala mob violence, or to the culture of Vellahla violence which oppressed the Tamil low castes for centuries? Or both? Why did he also massacre the Muslims who had done nothing to him or to the Tamils?

Clearly, the explanation must be somewhere else because Prabhakaran’s mindless violence blurred the communal divide. To locate the source of his violence it is necessary to go deep into the violent Tamil culture.His mass killings of Tamils prove that he came out of the violent Tamil culture that had targeted the Tamils throughout their history more than any other external force. His scatter-gun approach, eliminating everyone whom he perceived to be his enemies, from Alfred Duraiyappah, to Neelan Tiruchelvam, and from Muslims to Rajiv Gandhi, had no relationship to the Sinhala politics.

M. K. Sivajilingam, characterised the violent Tamil culture succinctly when he said : “That was LTTE’s nature. They killed so many people who helped them. I don’t approve of it.” (Ceylon Today – 26.6. 2016) In saying that he was acknowledging, subliminally, that it was also the nature of Tamil culture because Prabhakaran came out of the violent Tamil culture. In the history of Jaffna, Prabhakaran stands out as the ultimate manifestation of traditional fascist violence that ruled Jaffna politics from the time of Sankilli — the mass murderer who killed 600 innocent Tamil Catholics on the Christmas eve of 1544 simply because they refused to owe allegiance to him.

In between Sankilli and Prabhakaran Jaffna was ruled by the casteist Vellahlas with an iron fist. Apart from the Vellahlas imposing their casteist regime with brutal violence on the hapless low-castes, sanctioned by Saivite Hinduism, it must not be forgotten that Jaffna was the only community that imported slaves from abroad and exploited them as slaves denying them the basic human rights. Slave traders and slave owners have a vicious history of showing no mercy to their fellow-man. In Jaffna slavery turned into one of the most evil forces that reduced the imported Malabaris from S. India to subhuman beasts of burden. The Vellahlas had the power of life and death over them. According to the Tesawalamai Code the slaves of Jaffnapatnam were divided into four castes – Koviyars Chandars, Palls and Nallavars. (p. 76, The Laws and Customs of the Tamils of Jaffna, Dr. H. W, Tambiah). They were the lowest in the caste hierarchy of the Saivite Hindus and were doomed for life.

Fascist casteism combined with evil slavery turned Jaffna into a hell-hole of brutal oppression. When the Dutch codified the laws and customs of Jaffna in 1706 and presented the Tesawalamai to the 12 Vellahla Modeliyars for their comments the only revision they suggested was the tightening of rules against the disobedient slaves. Of course, Tesawalamai, the sacred text of the Vellahlas, legalised casteist supremacy and the violence that went to enforce it. It provided the legal framework for the Vellahlas to reign supreme, including oppressing and suppressing the Tamils with violence, if necessary. Beneath the calm veneer of the Jaffna landscape lurked the subhuman cruelty inflicted on slaves and low-castes who were treated worse than cattle by the Vellahla supremacists.

The Sinhala visitors to Jaffna, who enjoyed the generous hospitality of the Vellahla elite, (the guided Sinhalese had no access to the long-suffering low-castes) returned with glowing reports of their brief stay. For instance, Jaffna cuisine had that extra flavour and kick which the Sinhala cuisine could not match. But they never knew what was seething beneath the surface. Except for the knowledgeable few and the Left-wing politicians the average Sri Lankan was not fully aware of the plight of the oppressed Tamils. Their hidden anger drew public attention only after the Maviddipuram Temple entry incident exploded, exposing the oppressive tyranny of casteism.

Jaffnaites were very clever at camouflaging their inherent social evils and presenting themselves in their white vertis as pure Gandhians or saintly Vivekanandas. The unsuspecting Sinhalese, in fact, accepted their religious rituals and became a part of the Vail festivals, Thai pongals and Hindu Kovils, especially Kataragama. They never suspected that the Vellahlas were marketing their subhuman supremacy, dressed in a variety of subtle grabs, with great success to the world at large. Vellahla violence dominated Jaffna until the late 1970s. After the Vadukoddai Resolution (1976) Vellahla violence slipped into the hands of Prabhakaran. Looking back it is clear that the pre-Vadukoddai and post-Vadukoddai politics were determined and dominated by the aggressive and confrontational Vellahla agenda.

It is, therefore, necessary to understand the nature of Tamil violence. Understanding the nature of Tamil violence is a key to grasp the realities that bedevilled Sri Lankan politics. Mired in the myths of their own creation the Tamil ideologues refuse to face the underlying violence that warped the Jaffna culture. The pro-Tamil ideologues have been engaged in labours of either covering up or giving respectability to Tamil violence. The Tamil separatists labelled the Vadukoddai War as a “liberation struggle”, meaning “liberation” from Sinhala domination. In the eyes of the Tamil separatists, this description was seen as having the most legitimacy. Some others said that it was an Eelamist War, which derived its origin from the Vadukoddai Resolution – the political manifesto-cum-declaration of war. Some said it was a terrorist war. This description gained global currency after India and America banned the LTTE as terrorists. Some referred to it as a “civil war” where the divided citizenry fought each other. Some saw it as a majority vs. minority. But not all the minorities – the Muslims and Indian estate Tamils — joined in the war. Some saw it as a North-South war. There is some substance to this as it focuses on the geographical centres from which the conflict originated. It is the least emotionally charged description which covers in broad terms a range of issues without mentioning controversial specifics.

Amidst this variety of descriptions one fundamental aspect was ignored : that it was a war between a democracy and a dictatorship. In the last battle at Nandikadal the GOSL forces pulverised the Tamil fascist regime and ended the war which was, under any criteria, a triumph for democracy. The Tamils were once again free to hold their heads high and walk the earth with a dignity that was denied to them by the Tamil fascist regime. The Tamils were once again free to hold elections without their political preferences being dictated by a gun-toting fascist regime. The GOSL liberated the North and the East from the tyranny of a one-man regime and restored power to elected representatives of the Tamil people. But the partisan vocabulary seldom framed the political discourse in these terms. The ideologues hardly, if at all, conceptualised or contextualised the Vadukoddai War as a clash of two diametrically opposed political systems.

Even after the war ended the focus was on the clash of two communities and not on the two political systems. The common vocabulary accepted in toto the violence unleashed by the Vadukoddai Resolution as a clash of two communities. Mark you, the 33-year-old war was fought at a time when global crises were measured by the way each combatant upheld the three pillars of contemporary civilisation : 1. human rights; 2. rule of law and 3. democracy. Political morality was debated within this triangular framework. International intervention was also determined (at least ostensibly) on these criteria. Any argument that falls outside these parameters was dismissed as an irrelevancy. Though these three aspects are contested from diverse standpoints, they remain as the central and the cherished reference points of the political moralists. The strength of these triple gems as a binding universal force was derived from the UN Charter. The full weight of international law was invoked and applied rigorously to achieve these three goals.

But, oddly enough, the political analysts seldom, if ever, dealt with the longest running war in Asia as a clash between a fascist dictatorship and a liberal democracy. The overwhelming emphasis was on the communal aspect where the majority was accused of oppressing the minority. This not only distorted the perspectives but also perverted the discourse that followed, leading to the justification of fascist violence of the ruthless Tamil “Pol Pot”. (New York Times).

Political analysts have taken extreme care not to categorise the wars fought by the Western democracies as communal, or religious wars. President Obama, for instance, has taken great pains to deny that the Christian West is fighting Islam. He defines his wars as a defensive mechanism for Western values, meaning democracy. human rights and rule of law. The overthrow of Saddam was hailed as a victory for democracy. The dominant theme to justify Western military interventions, from the Cold War to the hot war against ISIS, was the protection of the fundamental rights of man for which the defeat of fascist dictatorship was a sine qua non. The flattening of Hiroshima, Nagasaki and Dresden, with weapons of mass destruction, were justified on the grounds of saving democracy. The defeat of Nazism in Germany, fascism in Japan and Communism / Stalinism were celebrated as victories for democracy, human rights and rule of law. The intellectually fashionable cries of Left vs. Right have now receded into the background with democracy, human rights and rule of law taking precedence over any other competing ideologies. American-led regime changes – including the “January 8” regime change of Sri Lanka – were ideologically packaged and marketed as derivatives of these three factors. But in Sri Lanka the Vadukoddai War was propagated as a communal clash between the Sinhalese and the Tamils, or as the majority vs. minority war, ignoring the two glaring political systems that were battling for victory.

According to the prevailing political philosophy and international law, particularly R2P, no democratic and responsible state could / should stand by and watch a fascist regime violating fundamental human rights.Which state would tolerate a tyrant forcibly recruiting children to protect his survival? So why wasn’t the Sri Lankan crisis evaluated and debated and determined on this plane? Human rights came to the fore emphatically only after the Prabhakaran was defeated. The issue of human rights at the height of the war, particularly when Prabhakaran was killing his own people indiscriminately, was almost negligible. It was a time when Prabhakaran was projected as the invincible force that must be appeased. The NGOs argued that human rights could be served only by appeasing Prabhakaran, not by eliminating him. Throughout the war, human rights accusations were levelled primarily against the GOSL to tie its hands behind its back and weaken its military capabilities. It was not directed against Prabhakaran with the same emphasis as it would blacken Prabhakaran’s image and weaken his political clout.

At this point it must be conceded that the GOSL certainly was not a five-star democracy. But to its credit it cannot be denied that it fought the longest running war in Asia within a democratic framework, however defective it may have been. It even supplied food, medicine, social services and non-military essentials, to a rebel-held territory which, according to David Feng of UN, was a unique feature not found in other wars.As opposed to this, the Tamils fought the Vadukoddai War under the most ruthless dictatorship. Of course, the foundational justification were laid down in the Vadukoddai Resolution. In it the Tamil leadership declared its intention to step out of non-violent parliamentary politics and go for a military solution.Their main argument was that the mainstream parliamentary politics had failed to deliver their “aspirations” for a separate state based, of course, on a contentious history and, therefore, the only option was for the Tamil youth to take up arms and never cease until they had achieved their state of Eelam. The decision to step out of mainstream parliamentary politics opened the doors for the rise of the one-man regime of Prabhakaran.

One of the curious ironies of history is that the culture in which it grows hand-picks an agent to prosecute the defined agendas of the time. The ageing Fathers of the Vadukoddai Resolution washed their hands off any fighting and passed the buck to the Tamil youth. And in keeping with its fascist violent culture Vadukoddai Resolution produced Prabhakaran, the first born child of the Vadukoddai Resolution. The Vadukoddai Resolution found its appropriate man to execute its goals in Prabhakaran. He was hailed as the means to their end.

There was no democratic culture in Jaffna to produce democratic leaders to wage their wars under a democratic framework. All dissent was either suppressed or eliminated. Violent Jaffna culture was quite happy to go along with the first born children of the Vadukoddai Resolution. They were christened, rather affectionately, as “the boys”. It was too late when “the boys” turned their guns first on the fathers of Vadukoddai Resolution. The Tamils had to pay a heavy price for abandoning the non-violent mainstream politics and embracing the military solution. In embracing violence they had reached a point of no return. It was the biggest gamble of their political history. And they lost.

In the following brief entry in his diary, Ben Bavinck captures the critical turn of events of the time. He says : “Apart from meeting a number of other friends, I must mention here only Neelan Thiruchelvam, the TULF MP and a very influential lawyer, who was actively involved in drawing up the devolution proposals of the Chandrika government. He is a very busy man, but I managed to get 15 minutes with him. In our conversation he criticised the UNP and particularly its leader Ranil Wickremasinghe for bringing about the failure of the devolution proposals, which according to him had been among the best in the world. I asked him for an opinion about the statement of MP Sivasithamparam, indicating his willingness to abdicate in favour of the LTTE. He agreed with me that this would not be possible, because as he said, “they strive after ideals which are totally different from ours.” I also met Radhika Coomarasamy at the same place and she added her own comment by saying that if she had to choose between a Sinhala democrat and a Tamil fascist she would choose the democrat. (p. 261, Of Tamils and Tigers: a journey through Sri Lanka’s war years, Ben Bavinck)

The choice was clear. A minority of dissenting Tamils, recoiling from the horrors of the Vadukoddai Resolution, knew that the LTTE had no regard for the ideals of peace-loving Tamils. Nor was the Vadukoddai Resolution passed by the Tamil leadership for peace. Nevertheless, shock waves ran through the political landscape when M. Sivasithamparam, the Tamil leader, announced his readiness “to abdicate in favour of the LTTE” which meant leaving the war-weary Tamils in the hands of intransigent war-monger. Sivasithamparam like Sivajilingam was ever willing to sacrifice the Tamil people in the hope of achieving their impossible dream – Eelam. The Tamil political class misled and sacrificed their helpless people on the altar of oppressive gods. First they ruled, on the Saivite Hindu ideology that promised their heaven on earth through oppressive casteism. Then it was handed over to Prabhakaran, the Suriya Devan, who promised to deliver the Tamil people through his one-man regime. Both were delusional pipe dreams. Radhika Coomaraswamy comes out more bluntly and declares that she prefers “a Sinhala democrat” to “a Tamil fascist”. But she and her blue-stockings, not to mention their male counter parts, never had the guts to fight for the just war of the Sinhala democrats.

Though she acknowledged the democratic nature of the Sinhalese she was openly in the business of manufacturing justifications for the violence of the Tamil fascists. Neither Neelan nor Radhika had the intellectual integrity to live up to the objectives of the ICES to probe all sides of the inter-ethnic relations. They delved essentially into the Sinhala-Buddhist society to demonise them. They never explored the bleak history of Jaffna the way they scrutinised the southern society. In the name of objective research, they went into every nook and corner of Sinhala-Buddhist society, from Kalutara Bodhiya to Vihara Maha Devi Park, but they never ever peeped into the violent Saivite Hindu culture which was steeped, physically and ideologically, in ruthless violence. The violent Saivite Hindu culture that dominated Jaffna was defined unequivocally by its leading religious ideologue Arumuka Navalar who declared : “It is the duty of every Saivite to kill those who steal Sivan’s property or revile him. If one is not strong enough to kill the blasphemer, one must hire another to do it. If one has nothing to hire with, one must leave the country where the sinner lives. By remaining in the country one become participant in the sin.” – p. 80, The Bible Trembled, R. F. Young and Bishop S. Jebanesan.

Neither Radhika nor her guru, Neelan, were keen on exposing the seamy side of Jaffna history for public scrutiny. If the systemic Velllahla persecutions, denial of human rights, slave trade, caste oppressions and killings of Tamils by Tamils found in historical records were revealed then it would have diminished the political mileage they gained from accusing the Sinhalese of discrimination etc. Hiding the criminal culture of Tamils was another way of justifying the Vadukoddai violence launched against the Sinhalese by the Tamil leadership. .

As stated by Prof. Rajan Hoole, the NGOs were pussyfooting around the fundamental issues of war and peace, of democracy and dictatorship, of human rights and the crimes against humanity committed by Prabhakaran. The pro-Tamil intellectual community was as guilty as Sivasithamparam and Sivajilingam in the Tamil political class in “abdicating power in favour of the LTTE.” Which, of course, led the Tamil community all the way to Nandikadal.

Radhika had no excuse to either evade the moral choices, or dodge the horrors coming out of the womb of Jaffna. She knew her history. She knew the cunning passages of politics and the contrived corridors of power.

After such knowledge, what forgiveness? Think now
History has many cunning passages, contrived corridors
And issues, deceives with whispering ambitions,
Given us by vanities………………….Think
Neither fear nor courage saves us. Unnatural vices
Are fathered by our heroism. ……..
These tears are shaken from the wrath-bearing tree. — Gerontion, T. S. Eliot.

    “Sri Lanka’s elusive quest for a political solution to the ethnic conflict is an equally elusive goal: consensus among political parties about a broad framework of a constitutional settlement to offer regional autonomy to the Tamil minority. The two main parties, the United National Party (UNP) and Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP), ****** that have alternately ruled Sri Lanka for the past six decades******, despite a number of attempts to reach such a consensus, have at crucial moments backtracked to return to what has been described as ‘acrimonious competition’” http://www.india-seminar.com/2007/576/576_jayadeva_uyangoda.htm

        Seelawathie “Modawathie” Jayasinghe,

        If you are actually a Sinhalese then you must be a brainless Sinhala modaya.
        You should be praising Mr Mahindapala for digging the dirt and exposing Tamil high caste hypocrisy and racism.

        I showed some of Mahindapala’s articles to a Tamil friend (from the lower castes). He totally agreed with Mahindapala (perhaps not every detail)and said the “Vellalas are scum, parayas. (Paraya is a Tamil word I am told).

        He told another story. During the time of the Britishers, the Brits had wanted to build a road system connecting several villages in Jaffna and the Vellalas objected to it saying it would make the villagers “Uppity”.

        Modawathie please use brains.

    Jaffna Vellala Tamils were democrats until Singhala only came to Sri Lanka and Singhalese started the ‘race riots’and killed innocent Tamils.

    Remember it was the British rulers who found the Vellala Tamils smarter than the Singhalese and gave them jobs in the government service!

    When are you going to stop writing about the past and write about a peaceful solution to our problem?

        “ha ha ha tell that to any non-Vellala Tamil and see what he says.”

        Not so fast.

        Have you taken the trouble to look at all evidence available in the public domain?

        One doesn’t need to be a Vellala to demonstrate their Pol Pottist tendencies.

        You can start looking at your own thoughts, words, and actions by revisiting your own typing going back to several years.

        Sorry Taraki.

        Since HLDM used the word ‘Vellala Tamils’ I used the same.

        I meant all Tamils used Democratic means until SWRD,s Singhala only came along and split the two communities and brought about ‘race riots against Tamils.That is when separatist politics were born in Jaffna.

      “Jaffna Vellala Tamils were democrats until Singhala only came to Sri Lanka and Singhalese started the ‘race riots’and killed innocent Tamils.”

      Tell that to:

      1. Low-caste Tamils, who were not Vellahala, and who could not-drink from a Vellahala well.

      2. Low-caste Tamils, who were not Vellahala, and who could not pray or get favors from Hindu Gods.

      3. Up-Country Estate Tamils, who were disenfranchised by the Sinhala Racist and Tamil Racists like the Northern Tamils as they were not Vellahala Tamils, but Indian Tamils, and only the Southern Sinhala leftist parties, voted against this disenfranchisement of fellow citizens.

      4. Tell that to Tamil speaking Muslims, who were not Vellahala Tamils, who were expelled by the LTTE Tamils.If those Muslims were Vellahala Muslims ( funny, Islam does not recognize castism), would they have been expelled by the Vellahala Tamils? They did nor expel the Christian Tamils?

      Tamils should go in front of a Mirror and ask , what has Vellahalaism done for Tamils and Tamil speaking people?

        Amarasiri,

        Before I go in front of a mirror, can you go in front of one and ask as to what the Singhalese Governments have done to the Tamils over the last 60 years?

        • 2
          3

          Thamilan,

          ” What the Singhalese Governments have done to the Tamils over the last 60 years?”

          Sinhalese governments have done a hell of lot for the Tamils over the last 60 years which the Tamils never appreciate. Only exaggerate and tell mega lies.

          To start with for example they (heroic Sinhalese Buddhists) rescued their Tamil brethren and sisters from the evil, psychopathic clutches of the Tamil PolPot, tin pot dictator Velupillai Prabhakaran in 2009.

          For all the 30 odd years that VP was ruling NP and EP it was the mostly Sinhala government in Colombo (SLFP or UNP) that paid for food, medicine (which Velus thugs often stole and resold to their own Tamils at inflated prices), education, teachers, lectures Schools, Jaffna University and the civil administration. For decades when all roads to Jaffna were blocked by VP food was sent by ships from Colombo to Jaffna. (Bit like the West supplying West Berlin during the Cold War. And this amidst Velu trying to sink those ships.

          For almost a century Tamils from Jaffna were encouraged to settle in Sinhalese areas by the British. (Please note I am not referring here to the Tea estate Tamils who were also settled in the Sinhalese areas, often leaving Sinhalese destitute). This accelerated when the Colombo Jaffna railway line was built. The British were scared of the Sinhalese after the two rebellions (Uwa and Matale). Tamils on the hand, especially the so called “high caste” always bootlicked the British and the Sinhalese did n’t and got favoured treatment.

          The Jaffna Tamils settled in the Colombo areas (eg initially Kotahena)in droves and other Sinhalese areas such as Kandy in very large numbers doing very well even to this day, Look at the large houses Tamils own in Col 3, 5, 6, 7)whilst shouting discrimination.

          The Colombo govt pays for free education including the highly valued Medical (and Dental) schools which trained thousands of Tamil doctors, who with that free education (c.f Sinhala Buddhist Dr C W W Kannangara who brought about universal free education to everyone , including Tamils and Muslims))went abroad and did well for themselves and their children AND NEVER SAID A WORD OF THANKS and some of WHOM EVEN SPONSORED TERRORISM AGAINST the very country which gave them high quality education. ( see the Tamil Husband and wife who were struck off by UK Medical Council about 2006).

          The list is endless. Tamils tell lies and the stupid Sinhalese don’t even tell the truth.

          By the way Thamilan and to that “fake genocide survivor Native Vedda” and anyone else it was your violent, vulgar, psychopathic Tamil ancestors who started this conflict 2300 years ago,(not us Sinhalese) by attacking and finally ransacking our Sinhala Buddhist capital Anuradhapura. Technically genocide.

          When the Sinhalese built a new Capital psychopathic Tamils destroyed that as well. Tamils conveniently brush two genocides under the carpet.
          Tamils are just specialist demolishers. Sinhalese build, Tamils demolish and engage in propaganda and lies. Tamils always robbing the Sinhalese from Anuradhapura times.

      Thamilan,

      Tamils were not smarter they were better at bootlicking the Britishers.

      They were also more materialistic than the Sinhalese who were by culture semi-materialistic.

        I am not quoting history, but in the recent past the Singhalese and Tamils were living happily all over Ceylon until SWRD’s ‘Singhala Only’ came and broke us apart. This was followed by communal riots ,looting and killing Tamils all over the Island.This is what brought about LTTE and racist writers like HLDM!!!

        You are not a good student but a very evil biased racist student. I will give you zero for what you have posted.

        Tamil people also pay taxes in fact proportionally far more than the Sinhalese and have every right to expect and be given services and that is not a service or a privilege. It may to you racist Sinhalese mind. But this is their right. These services are not just for the Sinhalese only.

        All Sinhalese governments were saviours of the Tamils, especially the Rajapakse governments. Is this some sort of joke. All the Sinhalese led governments from independence have only committed genocide war crimes ethnic cleansing on the island’s Tamil population.

        Within 60 years from independence the island’s Tamil population had been reduced from around 26=27% to 15%. By making more than a million Indian origin estate Tamils who had lived in the island for more than 200 years and earning most of the island’s foreign exchange stateless and forcibly deporting them to India. They then killed more than 300000 innocent indigenous Tamil civilians, around 90000-147000 in May 2009 and chased around 1.2 million of them from their lands, many of them fleeing to the west and this clown calls this being saviours of Tamil people.

        From the time of independence the Tamil people were denied education employment use of their language and around 1/3 of their ancient historic homeland has been stolen from them by using government force to settle Sinhalese and this pathetic racist creature calls this benevolence.

        We often hear the Sinhala racists and the Sinhala Buddhist Chauvinists say the Tamils were favoured by the British. And the unsuspecting foreigners picked up that rant and repeated the same. The Tamils were not favoured by the British they were used. Nor did the missionaries. Politically every step of the way the British favoured the Sinhalese. This is why when they left without any protection to the Tamil speaking population they handed everything on a platter to the racist Sinhalese majority.

        They should have divided the country as they found it or set up a federal form of government, they did neither or asked the Tamils what they wanted. Asking a few highly Sinhalised elite Colombo 7 Tamil families their opinions will not do. The British are responsible for position the island’s Tamils now find themselves in.

        They arbitrarily conjoined two separate nationalities much to the detriment of Tamils. Locating the capital in Colombo gave the Sinhalese the illusion the Tamil areas are under Sinhala rule. The Sinhalese consider themselves Aryan (invaders) of the island. They also love to propagate that they are light skinned unlike the dark-skinned Tamils. All foreign correspondents of news media were given this false skin colour information by the Sri Lankan government until Kadiragamar and Chandrika Bandaranayake, for own reasons discontinued it.

        There were demographic, geographic and cultural reasons for the missionaries establishing Christian schools in Northern areas. Density of population was high, most villages were easily accessible and there was no organized religious opposition in the North like that of Bhikkudom in the South.

        The missionaries established schools in Colombo though it was already Christianised considerably with the Pereras, Silvas and Fernandos and also with the Burghers but Eastern Tamils did not experience such missionary penetration as the Northern area because the population was small and spread out.

        Do not forget the missionaries came to Christianize not to educate cost benefit considerations were also on their mind when outlays of money for capital projects were concerned. The British might have had very good reason for giving jobs to the Tamils also, in their administration. After all, their lands were annexed to other territories and it was only fair that they should have had a share in the administration. Further unlike most of the landowning Sinhalese elite the Tamils were willing to work and work hard.
        Another reason might have been to integrate the `communities`. (The British considered us communities not races/ethnicities) so we see that The British did not always favour the Tamils. The missionaries did not build schools in all Tamil areas. The missionaries in building schools to `Christianize` did not to `discriminate` against the Sinhalese. This is an absurd claim from the Sinhalese Buddhists.
        Tamil Elites were not all Christians Tamil Elite did great service to Sinhala culture and sought the friendship of the Sinhalese. One of them Sir.Ramanathan, risked his life to help Sinhala leaders who acted with malice toward the Tamils even before the turn of the 20th century.

        Christian Elites were as common among the Sinhalese as Tamils. There were more colonial bootlickers amongst the Sinhalese than among Tamils Many Sinhalese elites were the by products of the colonial gene pool and this was not the case amongst the Tamils.

        The descendants of these mixed blooded Sinhala leaders suddenly became the direct descendants of Duttugemunu, 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.

        Most of these men changed from `Brown Sahibs` to `Arya Sinhala Buddhist patriots` almost overnight.
        Men and women who occupied the front pews 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 that change was from genuine conviction and how much of it is the continuance of a Charade?
        The lap dogs of the colonial rulers of the past, had however very quickly become the keepers of a pernicious Sinhala-Buddhist ideology. Whether these men and women are selected, groomed, brought to power and kept in power, by the purveyors of this pernicious Sinhala-Buddhist ideology or whether these men and women in pursuit of power and wealth use these purveyors of hatred, is difficult to answer.

        It is however a marriage of convenience that has benefitted both. It has given those ruling, the space to abuse power and given those collaborating with them in the name of Sinhala Buddhism to exercise a hold on power disproportionate to their strength. Both have successively taken the people for a ride for almost sixty years and destroyed Sri Lanka as a nation.

        Lastly most of the land the British used to build their huge tea plantations was not taken from the Kandyan peasants. It is a big lie propagated by Sinhalese racists. These lands were virgin lands and the thousands of acres of land that the British acquired when they appropriated the Kandyan royal lands and land acquired from the banishment of Tamils from the Kandyan kingdom that was used for the plantation economy.
        In order to indemnify this the British went out of their way by annexing two historic Tamil territories Padavi Kulam ( Padaviya) and Thamban Kadavai( Tamankaduwa) to the Kandyan Sinhalese territories.
        Colombo and all the western littoral north of Colombo until Puttalam was Tamil until a century or two ago. You can see from most of the place names even in Colombo. The so called Sinhalese population along this coastal belt up to Kalutra and even further down south were all Tamils a few centuries ago. So when did Colombo become part of the ancient Sinhalese homeland

    Have you ever met any Sinhala democrats and Tamil fascists in your life time?

    My Elders tell me they heard about three prominent psychopaths namely Gota, Rohana,and VP and under them there were a few minor ones serving the three.

    Gota’s patriotic forces historically have had a large number of sadists on payroll.

    And of course there are a few who are trained or volunteered to inflict mental cruelty to unsuspecting readers.

    Could you clarify.

        If not for Gota Lasantha would be alive today.

        If not for Gota a few (merchants of death) would be poorer now.

        Genocide survivors we all are. I escaped myself from 89 JVP insurgency and found my way in Europe. What is wrong with Genocide survivors. Just because God allowed you morphologically healthy mouth piece you must not attack the survivors of various kind this way – that is what I feel whenever I got to read your two cts worth.

        Gota in the picture, just becuase most abusive president of the nation, put him altar as the commander to allow genocide. Remember the days that the bugger had been living as an average bread winner in the states. To that time, as reliable source reveal the bugger should have been going through all the torments being unable to face the life.
        Then again, with his brother s appointment – GOTA became peoples saviour – how could this ever happen ? Him as one who left the country for his selfish agendas, after all the various charges he had to face from 89 Insurgency – that is the part of the saddest truth.

          Mr. fernando,
          I hope you know the meaning of genocide. You should have checked it out before you wrote. How do you suggest fight insurgency/terrorism? Hand over the country to them?
          From where do you get the idea that elimination of brutal terrorists and insurgents to win our freedom and security is genocide? Use your god given brain before you write this type of trash. Sri Lanka has a population of close to 20 million. In 1989 how many Sinhalese died? Around 0.001 % is genocide for you?? You leaving the country to Europe shows that you were involved in terrorism at that time. I am Sinhalese and did not leave the country and I was not involved in terrorism, why do you think your “genocide” story did not affect me?

          Are you now trying to say that Gota and MR should have left the Tamil terrorism to continue? Not me, it was a great service they did for the country, where no other country had done so far: annihilate terrorism.
          The Rajapakse clan now is paying dearly for there post war governance. People of SL has punished them rightfully.

    VP, right or wrong, good or bad, did his stuff, lived his conviction through, and departed, facing the 250,000 vigilantes who came for him with his balls intact.

    Old HLD on the other hand goes on tormenting us with his ‘faction’ and recycled histories. Long after the postmortems are over, and the bodies buried, he keeps going on like an old record stuck in its grove. I suppose we must accept that he cannot understand that the music changed sometime ago. Decent people concerned about the future of this country are looking at ways, working towards, inclusivity and getting the best out of all our communities to work together towards a better Sri Lanka.

    But HLD will revisit the old vomit, stick in hand, looking for little tidbits of an era that ended 7 years ago. Don’t expect different from a man with a vile divisive mind (and no heart).

    To rephrase an oft used quote:

    Mr. Mahindapala, you should be praised. For a simple reason. Your untiring effort to reveal the truth. How mad the Tamil Chauvinism is and how dangerous fomenting it. Let the agents of Tamil racism bellow at any rate and brand you with various insults. Racism of any kind is ugly. But, sadly, for most of the people, they attack only to sinhala racism and turn back to other means of racism.

      Why not you join to him by leaving srilanka ? He will find you refuge in Ausi land. You the guys are a greater curse to our mawbima. Even if we live out of the island, we have a pain towards the folks not being able to help them out. Wild weeds of your kind can only ruin the lives of the poor not allowing them to get the facts and findings of the day. While Meeharaka Rajakashe run amok being on Temple premises, all other hurdles seem to stand on the ways of the current rulers – so this was the nature of any country – in the region and other geographical parts of the world, if leaders made genuine efforts to change a lot in the system. Paradigm wechsel (Shift) of everything let alone to some extent could bring our dreams into reality. But there, majority of people should keep them well informed what the ground realities. What those abusive politicians make every effort to achieve abusing the voters of the poor again and again. VOters of the poor have been their bread to survive. Specially, Rajakashes could not become the people s representatives, if the average folks were well informed about the ground realities of lanken situations.
      Today, there do exist lot more press freedom than had been in the days of MR. But who is making use of the freedom – those JOURNOS work for Maharaja… Derana is becoming the front runners. Alone the headings of their news avoid the message since their main aim to rabble rousing.

    For all your erudite scholarship, sir, you will never convince anyone on anything. Man be the floating voters. Everyone is entrenched in their own point of view.

    For the benefit of our readers:

    “(The) Vaddukoddai Resolution was adopted on 14 May 1976 in Pannakam near Vaddukoddai, Northern Province, Sri Lanka it called for the creation of an independent Tamil Eelam by the Tamil United Liberation Front under the leadership of S. J. V. Chelvanayakam and it fought (the) Sri Lankan parliamentary election, 1977 on its demand for Tamil Eelam and won an overwhelming mandate in the Tamil areas and become the main opposition party in Sri Lanka the only time a minority party has done so.It gave impetus to Tamil Nationalists who claimed it was an democratic endorsement in favor of a separate state”

    Democracy? Put it to a referendum then.

    There are no special Tamil problems in Sri Lanka. all problems sited are Economic in nature and can be solved through proper development.

    No Separate state, no Provincial Councils, no federal system or police powers, or land powers to a particular area is required as the real facts of the problem is manipulated and distorted to camouflaged as a Tamil Problem.

    Up country Tamils are brought by British to work AS KOOLIES IN THEIR TEA ESTATES and other tamils basically come through various invasions, plunderers, kallathonies,smugglers and captured during invasions.

      Due to a heavy Strom in the Bay of Bengal, their boat drifted for days and finally by chance, it landed in an Island where people (Veddas) were already living.

      These kallathoni criminals led by their chief known as Vijay (along with 700 criminals) landed without any permission from those people, attacked and killed those people, took their princess and their whole country and then abandoned her and the children for a South Indian Pandyan princess.

    HLD M again sings his lullaby to sooth his guilt ridden crowd. Who else will say “Sinhalese are democrats, Tamils are fascists”. He implies that the goons who took part in the pogroms against Tamils from 1956 till 1983 are “Democrats”. The meek Tamils who took the brutality without resisting according to this man are “Fascists”.

    HLD M is taking on a Goebbels role “Repeat a lie till it becomes truth”. Fascist Goebbels was intelligent but HLD M is quite dull. Goebbels was committed but HLD M is just a mercenary. This time he was asked to denigrate the Governor of Central Bank (SL) Dr Indrajit Coomaraswamy. He will do this in due course but in this article he starts with Radhika Coomaraswamy. HLD M says “But she (Radhika) and her blue-stockings, not to mention their male counter parts, never had the guts to fight for the just war of the Sinhala democrats”. Can one descend lower?

    Mahindapala,

    Excellent piece of writing. You have brought a new dimension to the conflict between Tamils and Sinhalese.

    Truth is a bitter pill for some who are trying hard to distort the facts. The decision to launch an armed struggle against Sinhalese was taken during British colonial rule. Tamils smuggled guns from South India for that purpose. Tamil politicians used the decision taken by SWRDB to change the official language from English, a language used only by 6% of the people to Sinhala as an excuse. When English was the only official language, Tamils had no problem. When we had English letters in number plates of vehicles Tamils had no problem. Neither they utter a single word against that nor fought against British rule. It is Sinhala heroes like Puran Appu, Gongalegoda Banda who fought against British rule while the Wellala Tamils were licking the boots of British to get privileges. Moors served in the British army that killed Sinhalese. In order to crush Sinhala uprisings, British killed thousands of Sinhalese. We can not forget the Wellassa massacre in which British killed all able bodied men, burnt down paddy fields and cut down all fruit bearing trees allowing women and children to die of starvation. There are some idiots even among Sinhalese who say that we did not shed a drop of blood to gain independence.

    It is Indian Tamils who destroyed the Raja Rata civilization based on one of the most advanced hydraulic system designed by Sinhalese. There is nothing like that in South India. Prosperous Sinhala Kingdoms were in the northern part of Sri Lanka which now Tamils claim as their traditional homeland. Tamils have to face the fact that they are invaders from South India. All historical and archeological evidences prove beyond any doubt that the Sinhala civilization originated and flourished in the Northern part of Sri Lanka.

    If Sri Lanka can get rid of the opportunistic Wellala Tamil politicians, Tamils and Sinhalese can live peacefully. We also have to get rid of guys like Gnanasara, who in my view is not a Buddhist monk but an agent who is trying to stir up a Sinhala-Muslim conflict that will help to achieve the objectives of groups who have a vested interest. I hope Buddhists and Muslims will not get into the trap. If they get into this trap, there is a likelihood that Sri Lanka becoming like Egypt, Libya or Syria. If that happens, there will be some who will be very happy.

      From where did you get all these fairy tales from? The Lankaweb Website? Listen mate everything about the Sinhalese reeks Tamil. The people are largely of Tamil descent the culture food dress festivals etc are all reek of Tamil. The language’s vocabulary is around 40% Tamil origin, its grammar syntax lexicon and alphabet is purely from Tamil. All the so called ancient kings and the later Sinhalese kings are of South Indian dynasties. Basically Sinhalese are indigenous and Indian origin Tamils and other tribes who converted to Buddhism and gradually corrupted their Tamil with the Pali/Sanskrit of Buddhism to create a new language called Sinhalese, that only came into existence around 9AD. The largest input in the Sinhalese DNA is Tamil very little from other parts of India. Around 50-60% of the present day Sinhalese are purely descended from Indian Tamil immigrants who migrated to the island a few centuries ago. Your so called hydraulic civilisation is actually very South Indian. You don’t find this in other parts of India. Get your facts correct.

        These are not fairy tales but facts.

        Give me one example from India like Yodha Ela which is a master piece in hydraulic engineering or Ruwanveli Seya which is masterpiece in structural engineering.

        If Tamils are so great how come you could not keep whole Bharata for yourself without handing over the northern part to Aryans and retreated to the south.

        Sinhala has been recognized as one of the oldest languages in the world.

        Recently the World Bank allocated funds for a project to teach Tamils to use toilets instead of shitting in public places!!!

          You can only fool your fellow Sinhalese that Sinhalese one of the oldest languages on earth.
          Sinhala Buddhist regime is the worst criminal regime of the 21st century that committed genocide against the Tamils.
          War criminals are getting pushed and cornered and time will come for an all out international investigation of war crimes, human rights abuses, rape and genocide committed in Sri Lanka that will expose a great name for the Sinhala race.
          Tamils already earned name in many Western nations and leaders in Singapore. Sinhala leaders are good for crimes against humanity and mankind!

    What is Radhika Coomaraswamy’ stand on international investigation of war crimes, human rights abuses, denial of R2P, denial of rule of law and justice and genocide against Tamils?

    Writer failed to write why Tamil youth rebelled, how they were dehumanized by the Sinhala Buddhist Apartheid regime and its forces, denial of rights? No Sinhala is capable of writing an analysis or provide a report like Sir John Silcot on invasion into Iraq. Sinhalese leaders are failed and rogue leaders of the 21st Century and they are responsible for the bloodshed, violence and human sufferings due to their barbaric, inhuman, uncivilized practice and mindset.

    Only an international independent investigation with foreign Judges will deliver meaningful Justice. Tamils all over the world are united on transparent, independent tribunal and working towards it!
