Sinhala Women Without Sinhalization Power

By C. Wijeyawickrema

Wigneswaran’s mouth

I know two Sinhala women who married Tamils, both without the approval of their Sinhala parents that one could perhaps describe as love is blind kind of eloping.  In one case the Tamil side decided to have a Hindu marriage ceremony. It began with a private Hindu custom of bathing the naked body of the bride by the groom’s close relatives. I am not sure if this was done because the bride was a Sinhala Buddhist. This Hindu marriage, however, did not prevent her from functioning as a Buddhist, if she so wished, unlike a marriage performed at a Christian church. This one example that I knew gave me unnecessary concern when I saw a news report of a declaration made by NPC CM Wigneswaran ( W) at an AG meeting of Sarvodaya at Moratuwa.  He allegedly said that “he likes Sinhala people but not Sinhalization.”

Wigneswaran

Wigneswaran

Politicians make all kinds of false statements or half-truth to fool people. For example, Karunasena Kodituwakku, a former UNP education minister said recently (Divayina, December 31), that it was the UNP which created the free education in Sri Lanka. In the first place there was no UNP in 1945, when CWW Kannangara as minister of education under the Donoughmore System got the law passed by the State Council. The second thing was that DS Senanayake was dead against “free education.” He and all those who later became the UNP opposed granting the voting right to people in 1931. The rumor was that CWWK had to wait until DSS was out of the country to present the education bill (Ref. De Silva, K. M. 1981. A history of Sri Lanka. London: C. Hurst. p.472-474).

Wigneswaran marriages-Sinhalization as genocide

W had two Sinhala-Tamil marriages under his watch, by his two sons. Were they performed according to Hindu customs with bathing brides or were they according to Sinhala or Marxist methods? In any case did they make his sons Sinhalized? The poor Tamil in Jaffna does not know these and W is poisoning their minds. W who grew up in Colombo as a boy can do better to get rid of Tamil separatism and erase Tamil suspicions from those Tamils who still think Sinhalaya as their enemies.  But instead, W is doing exactly what SJV Chelvanayagam did.  SJVC forbade Tamils to learn Sinhala but gave private tuition so that his children could learn Sinhala!

In Tibet there was/is a fear of Chinese marrying Tibetan women and thus converting Tibet into a Chinese region. Similar fears were there in Viet Nam about Chinese marrying Viet Nam women. Such government-promoted policies are considered as genocide of a race. Sri Lankan has no policy of promoting Sinhala soldiers to marry Tamil girls. Instead, what we see is some love-struck soldiers marrying similarly love-struck Tamil girls.  With W becoming a grandfather of mixed Tamil-Sinhala products, as a politician he has to explain if genocide is working with his W descendants either on the Tamil path or the Sinhala path; because, Sinhalization or Tamilization can take place only by way of such genocidal means.  Since W has used the term genocide publicly he should make a public statement disapproving Tamil girls marrying Sinhala boys.  This is the only way he is morally right in using the term Sinhalization.

No homelands

But if he is thinking that only he and his Tamils can live in any part of Sri Lanka with equal rights but Sinhalyas cannot live in any part of the country he will end up as a failed and miserable Colombo Tamil.  Most probably he thinks this is possible because RanilW, under his infamous CFA 2002, allowed exactly that: Prabakaran black cats and suicide bombers could roam any part of the island but the army was restricted to the South. There is no way that a Tamil self-determined unit coming up in Sri Lanka because 55% Tamils live outside NP and EP.

If Tamils world over want a separate country for them with a UNO seat they should try it in Tamil Nad.  W should not become entangled with this idea and instead, he should try to help poor Tamils to overcome their day to day problems, a result of 30 years of suffering under the dictatorship and murder by Prabakaran. The more W uses platforms like the Sarvodaya’s  and make stupid statements, the more he make it difficult even for the UNP to lend him support.

EP is an artificial demarcation and therefore, it cannot be used as a boundary for an organic entity that can be called a homeland. Think of Kurdish people. What is their homeland? Kurdish people are now under so many states: Turkey, Iraq, Iran, Syria etc. A Kurdistan is a dream, but it can be identified as an organic unit, despite the large extent of the land area coming within it. If, for the sake of argument one wants to try to demarcate a Tamil homeland are in the EP, it will be limited to a coastal strip and to a few towns. Even the Muslims are claiming the Potuvil area as their homeland! If this is upheld then Beruwala and Akurana will also be Muslim homelands!

The systematic destruction of ancient Buddhist ruins in NP and EP will not help in trying to convert EP and NP as exclusive Tamil areas. Sinhala people are angrily aware of how impotent Sinhala black-white leaders operating in Colombo allowed the robbery of sacred ruins of EP. An example is the Muhudu Maha Viharaya near Potuvil. See the loss of land area (acres) belonging to the ancient temple: 1951 = 264 à 1965 = 30 à 1980 = 20à 1990 = 15 à 2005 = 7 à 2013 = 0 .25 of an acre. Thus now it is only a quarter of an acre!

As the Burger CJ Sansoni once said, Tamils FP/TNA leaders should give up their separatist plan and live amicably with their Sinhala –in-laws (as in the case of Wigneswaran).  Sooner or later Sri Lanka has to come out of the black-white control in Colombo and replace the 9 province division by a 7 river basin face. Each of the seven units will have a see front. It can be seven river basins or 20 since Sri Lanka has 103 river basins. If the present Rpremdas created 14,000 GSN units are re-demarcated according to ecology-based boundaries, they can be amalgamated under river-basin based districts or provinces. The GSN-level local governing must be given to non-political party, elected 10 people committee. Imagine how many such committees will be in the present EP and NP area with Tamils, Muslims and Sinhala people working together in harmony handling their day-to-day affairs, whether it is garbage, water, sanitation, Dengue, Kidney disease, education, cultivation etc.

The problem is that the 20,000-30,000 black-whites that the Anagarika Dharmapala mentioned in the 1940s are doing everything to prevent such people empowerment. This is what people must be informed, so that they could not be cheated by green, blue or red fake Buddhists or other saviors such as Sarath Fonseka. We must thank the Bodu Bala Sena for bringing this truth to our attention.

      It was Prof. CM Maddumabandara, former Vc of Pera who presented the River Basin based demarcation of provinces. It was published in the Island sometime ago and was also presented at the OPA. I have read in a publication by the World Bank Institute that devolution of power to natural resource poor regions is useless and in that same publication there were arguments for and against. Though connectivity would reduce the imbalance, present demarcation has created dependent provinces. Before British Raj chased out Sinhalese from plantation regions, there was no starvation in those regions. Peasants had adequate food in the surroundings. In the current National Physical Plan for the country, the central hilly region has been marked as fragile and there is a proposal for reforestation of 8000 sq.km. in the same region. Some environmentalists say it is impractical and impossible.

        I don’t know on what basis the british demarcated the nine provinces,but why should we just continue with what they had done.Why not since we have achieved independence show them that we can do it better and a river basin and sea front for each province seems a better idea than what the british did and we can show them we are superior to them in logic.Thavaraja’s idea is also good.If we reverse a CTB bus into a wall and according to the dents in it create the provinces then it is god’s will and may be perfect.I remember i won the all island modern art competition when i was in school by throwing cans of paint onto the canvas.God’s will.

          “Tamils were transported everywhere in the world as near slave workers and not singhalese.”

          Now it rings a bell.

          Only the Sinhala/Buddhists are allowed to tarnish and distort facts.

          The reason the Tamils were transported everywhere in the world as near slave workers was that they were hard working and fitted for purpose than the lazy unreliable Sinhala/Buddhist slaves.

          Even the slave masters knew that Sinhala/Buddhist slaves would be a drain on their profits.

    ” Instead, what we see is some love-struck soldiers marrying similarly love-struck Tamil girls. “

    Tamil girls are marrying Sinhala men because the former are poor and Tamil men were slaughtered by Sinhala men. So yes it is genocide through the bedroom because the 2 sides (Tamil women and Sinhala men) are not on equal footing as Tamils women are the conquered and the Sinhala men the conquerers . It has been the policy of invaders to always kill off the conquered males and take the conquered women as wives as a final solution to the ethnic problem between the conquerer and the conquered.

    ” The poor Tamil in Jaffna does not know these and W is poisoning their minds. W who grew up in Colombo as a boy can do better to get rid of Tamil separatism and erase Tamil suspicions from those Tamils who still think Sinhalaya as their enemies. “

    The writer is talking like he gives a fig about the poor Jaffna Tamil, when his modus operandi is to keep Tamils ignorant of the fact that Sinhalization is ongoing and most insidious is the Sinhala soldiers marrying poor Tamil women. Tamils in Jaffna and the East aren’t ignorant like the writer implies; they are aware of the threat posed by Sinhala men marrying Tamil women.

    Similarly, the Sinhala kallathonies had no say in 1931 to the granting of franchise for all to vote but just the British Raj firmly established at Calcutta. At the same time Chinese women received the right to divorce.

    Fortunately the Sinhalese kallathonies are not Japanese to stay away from apologising for the `cause` of racial persecution and JVP terror symptoms before the Tamil terror symptoms.

    The CT might have published this article to balance the usual high quality with this illogical third grade. First there is no Hindu custom of bathing the bride naked or clothed by close relatives of the groom. Another absurdity is trying to relate Mr Wicneswaran’s statement of intent and policy with a private matter. Any woman Sinhalese or otherwise marrying a man who may follow a different religion is a private matter and no political leader can be responsible to the manner the purported ceremonies are held.

    The learned judge is qualified to make the statement that he “is not against Sinhalese but against Sinhalamisation” as his child married into Sinhalese community with his blessing and at the same time against Rajapakse brothers changing Tamil names of villages, roads and notice boards into Sinhalese and government sponsorship of Sinhalese settlements in areas dominated by Tamil speaking people.

    Wijeyawickrema,

    You bloody ignorant idiot. Afer redaing the first Pargraph which is CRAP I didnt even bother to read the rest. But let me put the record straight of the bits I have read.
    Where did you get your stupid information that before the marriage the bride sits infron of everyone to be given a naked bath. How insulting this is for a Woman Tamil or Sinhalse. You might practice that in your House because you are half Animal.

    As for your other rubbish about Tamils Living in any Part of the Island and Sinhalse not having the Right to live in any part of the Country let me explain.
    Even an idiot like you should be able to understand that we are a minority in Sinhala Buddhist Country where you control everything from Ruling, Controlling Army , Navy Airforce and the Police so we cannot colonise the South. The reason why the Tamils are in the South is because we dont have anything in the North because since independance you lot deliberatley neglected the North and the North accounts for 5% of the GDP.
    You cannot come and live in the North if the intention is Colonisation as happening now.
    But believe me we will change all that starting from March 2014 and when we have a change at the top in India we will unite North & East and develop and all the Tamils from the South can return Home.

    By the way let me ask you a personal question do you bathe your sister naked before she get married.

    These comments are dangerous. It may make some foolish people rise against the Tamils who are innocent and not racist minded from south to North and East to West before even the NATO Forces meet to discuss from where to start bombing to stop the massacres.

    Thereafter who will remain and how many remain will not know and Sri Lanka will be turned to rubble by NATO forces like they did to Libya. Be happy until then my friends and spread you hatred towards the Sinhala call them modayas if you want to .

    Who will have the last laugh ? It would not be the Tamils nor the Sinhala.

    Saro just to take one commentator. These commentators write without understanding a jist of what Mr. Wijewickrame is trying to convey in his articel. Try to read the article slowly and understand what is the underlying meaning the writer is trying to convey. To do that get rid of your racism,and inborn hatred, and for once try to be kind, compassionate, and humane and look at the article with some intelligence you could muster.

      In your accusation of racism, inborn hatred etc., you see yourself in the mirror. The writer of the article cannot get away rubbish that does not happen and associating a purported rites in a wedding ceremony to a noble leader of high caliber. You justify Sinhala-Buddhist domination of Sri Lankan political system from just police to the top by your defense of the writer. That is naked racism.

    You know you are a racist.Sinhala have never been racists. Probably you were not even born in Sri Lanka and never lived with the Sinhala.. You cannot judge the Sinhala young man get rid of your prejudices that has come from opinion you have been fed with by equally ignorant people who had not lived with the Sinhala. Buddhists are a majority they not only dominate but influence in directing Sri Lanka towards progress, peace and happiness of all people who share Sri Lanka. You cannot understand what it is living in a foreign country where you will all ways be a foreigner even if you would become a politician where you live.

    Javi,

    Tamils are suffering from a great inferiority complex. They think the Sinhala are far better than them and in order to prove to themselves that they are better than the Sinhala they hate the Sinhala call them names, say the Sinhala are racists, karawal perera, and ask for equal rights, fifty-fifty etc. They scold the Buddhism of the Sinhala, because the Tamils are worshipping idols with elephant heads, Kali a blood thirsty demon, six headed twelve armed statues of Gods, a monkey called Hanuman , and the lingam. They are not about the Giods they worship. The Sinhala even have a different respectable religion.

    The Sinhala follow Buddhism , which is a clean religion a philosophy of a great man a Buddha. But all that is in the minds of the Tamils. There is no difference between the Sinhala and Tamils. The difference is in the minds of the Tamils.

    See even what the Tamils write. Most of waht they write are incoherent. They cannot write simple understandable posts, because they are confused what they write are also confused.

    Please try to be yourselves and every thing will be alright.

    dayam- Wijeyawrickrama- it must be hurting real bad

    C. Wijeyawickrema, LL.B., Ph.D.

    Introduction

    The editors of Colombo Telegraph asked me to respond to the “comments” made by its readers to my essay titled, “Sinhala women without Sinhalization power.” I consider it my public duty to do this even though most comments are nonsense (noise) by anonymous people who think CT is another website like the Tamilnet (located in Canada?). I think I am the only person writing to CT about the discrimination faced by the Sinhala Buddhists in Sri Lanka both before and after 1948, and so far my essays are the only evidence CT has to erase the perception that it is not an anti-Sinhala Buddhist website. It can be an anti-MahindaR website as reveals from Tisaranee Gunasekera’s writings, but it should not be a forum for those who want to divide the island and create another South Sudan for the benefit of white global corporate powers. The readership of CT, going by the comments on my essay, is mostly like mad dogs barking at the moon as the caravan passes. This discourages spending time to respond to comments. But there is some hope as two or three readers understood what I wrote and asked others to read it slowly and carefully. The different readership tastes are clear when I consider the response given to the same essay by the Lankaweb readers. I hope CT readers visit Lankaweb also to understand the other side of the coin on Sri Lankan ethnic/separatist politics.

    Shankar Please do not mix religion with mans failings. To begin with the riots in the south against the Tamils was the creation not of Buddhsits Sinhala but a reaction to utter inhuman criminality of the Tamils who killed Sinhala government officislas and Sinhala visitors in the North causing a back lash in the South. You should not blame the Sinhala Buddhists for what the Tamils forced Sinhala Buddhists to do. Buddhism is the religion. It is to help people understand what is bad and good an live accordingly. But the Sinhala Buddhists are by nature gentle, accommodating and friendly, but that does not mean they should remain silent with their arms crossed while the non-Buddhists try to attack them and hurt them and taker away what belongs to them.

    JRJ came into power with a pledge to solve this problem through dialogue. From the day he came into power Tamils were killed. JRJ was a liar of the first grade.The killings of 1958 and 1983 were organised by the leaders of the country or they gave a cause to the Sinhala Buddhist to kill. SWRD did it and JRJ with his henchmen did it.The report by the Joker .A.. licker at Asgiriya on Buddhist revival is a similar attempt to create another riot.The Asgiriya idiot should be tied to a tree and horse whipped.
