Sinhalese Won’t Give Anything, We Must Try To Obtain Our Rights Under International Laws: Wigneswaran

Last few weeks the Chief Minister of the Northern Province has been answering in a serial, one question every week in Tamil for the press. Without answering perfunctorily he explores the background of the question and gives detailed reply. The latest in this series is as follows – (This is a translation to English) –

Wigneswaran

Question – You have been discussing many matters recently with the political and religious  leadership of the Sinhalese. Sometimes your views seem to have angered these leaders. The Tamil leadership is worried whether your utterances would prevent the Sinhala leadership from granting even the meagre powers they are willing to grant presently. What have you got to say?

Response – Good question! But whoever told you that the Sinhalese leaders are ready to grant anything to you. What is the back ground to the Sinhalese leadership usurping our legitimate rights and now saying we will give you so much and not anymore and so on?

We must be clear in our minds of one thing. A person like the UN Official Pablo de Grief is aware of this matter. But it  is a pity that our Tamil leadership has failed to recognize this. What I mean is that the Sinhalese political and religious leadership is not interested in sharing power with the Tamils. If they were interested they would have at least granted by now what they publicly undertook before the International Fora.

For example even eight years after the war the Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act has not been withdrawn. What do you expect from those who have  not kept their word in this regard even?

Even if the Sinhalese leadership condescends to grant some powers to the Tamils it will wriggle out of its obligations in no time. What happened to the Banda-Chelva Pact and Dudley-Chelva Pact and such other Agreements would be reenacted again or what happened to the North –East merger after 18 years would happen belatedly.

You may ask me as to why I am so pessimistic about the Sinhalese leadership. The reason is traceable to the fundamental cause that led to the racial contradictions in this country.

The Sinhalese leaders are zealously guarding the political powers they clinched from the British in whatsoever manner they did. It is their reluctance to share such power which is the fundamental cause for our communal impasse. There is a misapprehension that has engulfed the Sinhalese political leadership. They feel that what has been obtained by in whatsoever dubious means if shared would lead to the destruction of the entire Sinhalese Buddhist race. Hence they would try to jealously guard their political hegemony over the entire country.

In a legal sense it is ideal for every racial, religious or linguistic group living contiguously to govern themselves in their respective areas.  While doing so they could consider the entire  country as theirs and set up an appropriate shared government. But the Sinhalese Buddhists are reluctant to do so. The reason trotted out by them is that  this the only country available to them while the Tamils have Tamil Nadu in India for themselves. What that means is because there is a Tamil Nadu in the neighbouring country the progeny of those Dravidians who lived in this country even  before the genesis of the Sinhala language  should go away to Tamil Nadu or if they wish to continue residing here they should conform to the dictates of the Sinhalese. In effect their political philosophy appears to be “Tamils leave us! If not prepare to live under our yoke”. But preferring not to be so blunt in saying so they prefer to articulate  such noble sentiments such as “we will give you that” and “we will give you this” delaying giving anything.

It would be pertinent at this stage to examine what exactly they would give us. They would not give anything which would adversely affect the political stranglehold exercised by themselves so far. They would not grant a legally sensible or lawfully expected power sharing of any acceptable nature. If so, why should we be pampering them? After all our Tamil leaders are asking them right or wrong  give us what the Sinhalese leadership is intending or interested in granting us. Why a hesitation in that too?

While preparing our political election manifestos we find out what our people want and accordingly prepare them. But once we are elected we are seeking the goodwill of others. May be we feel such goodwill might give us some favourable results! It is my view such hopes are misplaced. That is, what we had enshrined in our election manifestos as matters truly reflecting the aspirations of our people would never ever be granted. To expect some morsel of food to fall out from their plates for our survival would be foolish. Even if they allow some crumbs to fall from their plates they too would be withdrawn  in due course.

Therefore it is our lot to fight for our rights. None would like to share what they have peacefully and voluntarily with others. Hence when we agitate  for our rights to give undue importance to the feelings and preferences of the Sinhala leaders would only reflect our weakness. ( We should consider them only if there is a remote possibility that they would grant our rights)

Your next question in this regard would be how would you like to fight for your rights?

Firstly Tamils must unite. During the Tsunami the Liberation Tigers and the Army for just a few days joined together as brothers to do service to the affected people. Thus when our continued existence in the North and East is in jeopardy we must wake up to unite. Those living in the North and East, Upcountry, Colombo and else where in Sri Lanka must unite. They must be united in their thoughts. This request is not directed against our Sinhalese brethren. It is a thought in favor of the Tamils to  bring unity among us, divided as we are.

Next our diaspora must be called upon to co –operate with us.

Thirdly our Tamil brethren in South India must join hands in this process of bringing unity among us all. Just as how the Jews wheresoever situate in this world contributed to unity among themselves so too we should join in this process of unity. If we voice our concerns in unity the International Fora will listen to us.

Next we must correct the false history of the Tamils portrayed to the world so far by the Sinhalese Buddhists. We should educate the Sinhalese leaders as to the true state of our history. For example we should point out that the Dravidians lived in this Isle even prior to the genesis of the Sinhalese language, that  the persons who first converted  to Buddhism in this Island were the Tamils who lived in the North and East and the Buddhist archeological  remains  found  in North and East today belong to those Demala Baudhayo and not to Sinhala Baudhayo. It must be pointed out that the Sinhalese Buddhists did never ever live in the North and East as a majority community at any stage.

The International pressure politically should mount too. We must try to obtain our rights under the International Laws. At the same time it is desirable that we must enlist   the support of our Sinhalese brethren who are supportive of our causes to bring about change in the thinking of our Buddhist Sinhalese leaders. Granting internal self determination to the Tamils, they must be told, does not bring any disadvantages   to the Sinhala Buddhists but only advantages. This must be pointed out to them.

But fundamentally the change must come over among us Tamils. We must discard our arrogance and haughty tendencies. We must come forward to work for our people in unity and earnest. We show regard, respect and fear to an uneducated armed Sinhalese soldier but when it comes to our loving educated Tamil brothers we exhibit competitive feelings and jealousy towards them. Living together in unity seems to be such a difficult task as far as our Tamil Community is concerned.

More specially those who identify themselves as belonging to the upper strata of  our society must undergo transformation. We must get used to treating every person as our brethren.

We have already lost a considerable number of our people to foreign climes and distant lands when we are embarking upon this journey of restoration of our rights. As it is  our education is in the doldrums . There is a shortage of  skilled workers among us. Persons from outside our  Province are being brought here by the government granting them our traditional lands and making them colonize these areas.

So where are we journeying to? What is our present situation? We should think about this state of affairs very closely. Then  we would realize the need for unity to some extent. Where there is a will there is a way. It is not difficult to unite. We must unite at least in our fundamentals. Therefore my humble request is not to wait to find out what the Sinhalese political and religious leaders would grant us. Join in earnest and make a request for what is legitimately ours. Make the claim in an undivided voice.

*Justice. C.V. Wigneswaran, Chief Minister – Northern Province

    While everyone is distracted with the non-existent new Constitutions debateand identity politics or the politics of the stupid, the real scam is being perpetrated by bond scam Ranil Wickramsinghe
    1. corruption investigations are being stopped and corrupt politicians are being let off like Karuna Aman and Wimal Buruwansa and the corrupt Rajapaksa family
    2. The biometric identity card which is a violation of citizen’s privacy rights and was ruled against in India last month has been introduced to police citizens and extract taxes.
    Civil society and citizens groups must challenge the biometic ID in court.

    Even the most perfect new Constitution will be useless in Miracle of Modaysa, where CORRUPT politicians are looting the people while using ethnicity and religion to DIVIDE, DISTRACT the masses from corrupt money politics and RULE the moda masses.
    of politicians which is the primary reason for the ethnic conflict in Sri Lanka

      Dead on Dude!
      In the era of Fake News and post-facts, Bondscam Ranil, is using a non-existent “New Constitution” to distract the Fool’s Paradise and the Diyawenna Parliament of corrupt clowns, from the Highway Robberies of Laki Kiriella and Central Bank Corruption investigations and undermining the AG’s office and FCID investigations re, corrupt politicians at this time.

      What Sri Lanka needs today is not a new constitution, but New Politicians!

        Majority of the Sinhalas are struggling like the majority of the Tamils and Muslims under the curse of their corrupt, greedy politicians.
        Meanwhile the so called international community led by Trump-land advisors are playing “human rights games” with Bondscam Ranil — to advance foreign strategic security interests in Lanka.
        Human Rights is a game for the west and global 1 percent’s economic interests. They play the ethnic and religious identity politics market, in order to distract and loot the poor and ignore economic and social rights and justice demands.
        Fake news, fake constitutions, and ethnic and religious identity politics is the name of the great international Human Rights lobby game in Geneva and New York.

          The National Audit Bill is far more important than the a useless Constitution report, which is a red herring to distract from corruption of politicians!
          Websites like CT and news agencies should do a better job and stop being distracted by the racist Constitution debates on all sides in the parliament of morons, and focus on issues like the Audit bill and Biometic ID scam.
          What a frigging waste of time and distraction from the corruption.

          Not a bad calculation but yet , who writes the history ?
          Needless to say winner does it . Winner writes it and we
          just read it over and over and memorize .Now, What is the
          treatment plan for your diagnosis ? No point continuing to
          blame the cause. We too play the game of left and right
          time to time passing the ball from one side to the other
          since independence for over sixty eight years . Generations
          come and go talking tirelessly ,effortlessly and deceitfully .
          Old politicos disappear and their offshoots take over with
          new noise and problems for the majority and minorities
          stay put ! Sinhalese majority of this country may not be
          made to see an end to this demand for provincial powers,
          whatever they want to call it but feet dragging is definitely
          not a solution.

        Audit bill is necessary to catch the corrupt thieves on the Parliament of morons that spreads racism and hate speech with a useless constitution debate.

            He is against corruption but not matured enough to politics. Politicians should be team players. I think RR should learn more to do so.

            He has not been removed but he will have a plan B. None of UNP men would work against their party. Please keep your patience.

        URGENT – This is to H.E. the President
        .
        Mr. President, PLEASE KEEP YOUR WORD.
        .
        You said you were going to hold three separate conferences to obtain view/ideas/objections or rejections to the Constitutional Proposals.
        .
        There’s a news item where it quoted Minister Dilan Perera stating that he would vote in favour of Interim Reports in par with his party’s decision. These MPP were elected by people. They have no right to vote in favour of Interim Reports going against people’s wishes.
        .
        How could you cheat us like this, Mr. President? If you are genuine of your decision to hold three conferences, how could there be a Vote?
        .
        I vehemently object to having a Vote for Interim Reports which is “THE CORE” of the new Constitution. This is not fair.
        .
        Interim Reports weren’t opened for the views of the majority including Maha Sangha, other political parties and intellectuals. You may not be aware but it’s the Interim Reports what people stiffly against. What’s the point of submitting views/objections to Interim Reports once it is passed in the Parliament?
        .
        I distinctly remember PM stating he wouldn’t go for a Vote after the Debate. I don’t want to offend him, but I have difficulty in trusting him. The new Constitution, or whatever, SHOULD NOT BE PASSED “IN INSTALLMENTS”. That is not right. When it come to a Vote, it should be a complete document.
        .
        Besides, Mr. President, you challenged those who opposed the Constitutional Proposals to come forward with their alternate proposals to solve the “Tamil problem.” It is totally unfair to go for a Vote, without even letting anybody submit their proposals to the conferences you promised to hold, allowing a wider dialogue.
        .
        Mr. President, tomorrow’s Vote is an undemocratic move and going back on your word.

          Champa—–

          Why are you scared of a vote. If approved there will be a referendum where you can vote against. If majority say no let it be that. That is democracy. I am sure if there are true Buddhists all of them will say yes and give every thing Tamil people are asking.That is Buddhist way. Give give give and give. Bodhisatva habits. Any way if Buddhists ultimate goal is not to be born again why think of holding on to power. Greed won’t take one to Nibbana but to hell. The electoral map of Srilanka has changed. At a referendum those supporting the present proposals will enter the contest with 30% of the vote in the pocket. That is Tamil 20 Muslim 7 and Christian 3. I don’t have to say how much more is required to get the balance 21%. MR is well aware of this. In 2005 he bought the Tamil vote. Now think why Basil went to Jaffna a few weeks back.

          Why is Wigneshwaran seeking international assistance to win their rights when according to him and the diaspora Tamils were the original settlers and they came from south India and if so we are all Tamils and presently ruling the country enjoying all land and police powers. When they have the entire country why ask for only the North and the East.

      Excellent response by our Chief Minister Wigneswaran, as he suggested,

      Non-violent campaigns/civic uprising is a very practical alternative technique to militancy-cum-terrorism. There are several features in this strategy which are positive and relevant to the Tamil people everywhere. Firstly, it will involve large masses (tens of thousands), if not all of the Tamil people. Secondly, it will preclude the enormous waste of resources in the purchase of arms. It also provides a less unethical, less immoral and certainly less mortal route to the same experience of involvement, and it is open to every Tamil. Non-violence with Direct Action is not naive, but a rough factor for real politic based on careful study of human psychology.

      It is for the Tamil people in Sri Lanka to decide how they wish to settle the Tamil National Question. First of all, the unity and solidarity among the Tamil speaking Sri Lankans (North & East, Upcountry, Colombo and elsewhere) is the number one priority. Unless and until all the Tamil speaking people of Sri Lanka unite (in thoughts and action), they cannot opt for any political solution. All the Tamil parties and their leaders in Sri Lanka should work on a common goal in defeating majoritarianism and replacing the present Unitarianism and Centrist structure of government by a new confederative structure. They should also appeal to the Tamil Diaspora around the world, the Tamil brethren in Tamil Nadu, the International community, and with groups of enlightened Sinhalese, Muslims and others in this process. It will enable the Tamils and the parties to appeal with confidence to the conscience of the international community, as expressed in international law, world opinion and international institutions (including UN).

        “First of all, the unity and solidarity among the Tamil speaking Sri Lankans (North & East, Upcountry, Colombo and elsewhere) is the number one priority. Unless and until all the Tamil speaking people of Sri Lanka unite (in thoughts and action), they cannot opt for any political solution.”
        This is the right path. As a small contribution from me I have been always using ‘ Tamil speaking people” in parenthesis along with “Tamils”.
        “Unless and until all the Tamil speaking people of Sri Lanka unite (in thoughts and action), they cannot opt for any political solution”
        The only problem resulting from Tamil unity is the Sinhalese will unite in that proportion. In order to face this challenge Tamils must migrate to North so that a political solution can benefit at least 90% of them.

          Thanks to 1983 with the exception of Muslims all Tamils in all parts of the country and Ceylon Tamils around the world are united when it comes to race and language. Muslims chose to be separate and Tamils respect that. Which is not new when you look at Jinnah and Pakistan they will keep quiet let others carry the heavy load and then come for their equal share.
          They are what they are. You got to accept and move on.

          I know you are influenced by what Hitler did. He concentrated Jews in to a few places and then…….. Similarly, get all the Tamils concentrated in one place, just like Mara did for the Tigers in Nanthikadal. Do I have to spell out the next step and risk a ban? I don’t think so.

      This is an another big mouth that would not see the harm but just add his statements publicly. His suitabliity to the position is questionable.
      How dare he say that SINHALESE would not give anything ?

      So those sinhalese that gave 6.2 Million of mandate to chase way Rajapakshe were not example that there do exist some portions in the country that would see things different ?

      I think any positions that jeopardise peace and reconciliatary acts in the country should be removed from their positions and be appointed right men and women to go the process smooth.

          What I meant is CG is no means right by having made such public statments. He should be blind if I may say so. His position as a CM he should be very responisble for any public statements. How come he ask iinternational law enforcements bodies to work on lanken internal issues. What kind of law backgroudn he should have, even if he is proved to be a retired jugdge. His education should be so ridiculous him to come with the kind of statements. Man this is srilanka, where JUDGEs behave like donkeys.

            What I meant is CG is no means right by having made such public statements. What or who is CG? You mean his Center of Gravity. When I speak about gravity I am reminded of something that he said about gravity. It is not the fault of gravity if you fall in love.

            I think what has happened here is that Wiggy’s center of gravity has shifted and he has fallen in love with power. Sam, despite your low origins (caste and race and all that), and the lack of proper education you are highly perceptive.

                  Could not do it. eh? I thought so. This markup thing is such an easy thing! But even the smartest member of the Nazi Tamils group, Dan the Doggie, the intellectual canine could not do it. Do uou think it is necessary to say how stupid the other members are? I don’t think so even after a valuable reward was announced.

        Even if the Yahapalana government decides to ignore all the opposition (very doubtful) from the Sinhala-Buddhist Pseudo-Patriots/Ultra-nationalist Racists, the Buddhist Maha Sanga including the Mahanayake Theros, and the Rajapakshes including the Joint Opposition, an all island referendum is a MUST to pass the new constitution which will almost certainly be shot down by the Sinhala majority because they are being brainwashed to believe that Federalism or Devolution of power is nothing but Separation.

        The Sinhala leadership will not genuinely solve the burning national question. As usual the Sri Lankan Tamils will only get cheated? Our Tamil leaders must be naïve if they still believe that the Sinhala leadership (whoever it may be) will solve this problem by devolving maximum power. The TNA (Sambandan and Co.) are only fooling themselves if they believe that the present regime will solve the Tamil National question. The TNA should NEVER accept the new constitution if there is no proper Devolution of power for the Tamils. The minorities elected this President to see a change in Sri Lanka. Will the Yahapalana government also repeat the same mistakes that all the previous regimes did? Like what happened to all the pacts and promises that every Sri Lankan governments had with the Tamils in the past, will MS & RW’s new constitution to solve the Tamil National question also will come to an end with a failure? If so, the Tamils will definitely lose their patience and look for alternatives such as civic uprising in Sri Lanka and abroad (Pongu Tamil, Ezhuka Tamil, etc.) calling for a UN sponsored referendum for North & East. All the Tamil politicians and the entire Tamil community (tens of thousands) should rise and protest.

      Let me suggest followings to this former Judge when addressing the pain issues next; besides, he is not just one tamil but is reported to have got married to a sinhalese wife, with their own offspring is again believed tohave been married to a radical communist of the country – family Wasu or vasidewa family: So this man if he is so sensible in lanken thorny issues, he should long have thought the usage of his wording.

      1) How would it be if he used the term ” southerners ” instead of ” sinhalese” ?

      2) This particular insensible former Judge may well be aware of the fact that we fought a war that went on to 30 years. Now the terror within the country is seen over but there exist the wounds that resulted by the war. These to be healed off, as any psychologists at once see

      3) As some commenters articulate there still more fractions in valid numbers that would fight for permanent peace, these are common to both majoritiy and minority folks.

TNA Leader is always in Colombo or India – does not mingle with the oppressed people who are on streets demanding their legal lands and want to know the whereabouts of their loved ones.
      Not behaving as a leader of the opposition but as a supporter of the present regime – even in voting for the budget – He will vote for the next budget also so that he can stay in power as long as this government survives.

    The CM makes some very good points, worthy of consideration.
    Yes, the Bauddha-Sinhala politician cannot be seen to give anything at the moment to the Tamils or any minority; to be seen to do so would brand them weak at this point in time.
    Tamils must unite. Nothing weakened the effort more than the visceral divisions that tore the north apart.
    Be Sri Lankan First – even above ties to Tamilnadu.
    Exercise your Sri Lankan right to live anywhere on this blessed island.
    Reach out to other communities, and let them shed their fears.
    Persist! Persistence has a knack of breaking down barriers, and opening doors.
    Be patient! Nothing heals wounded spirits more than time.
    Trust the others who share this island with you; many can see the successes of those who sought refuge in other lands. Success that would have been to our benefit if achieved here at home.

    In my relatively long lifetime I have seen unbelievable things come to pass:
    Black embraced white in Africa (remember that nice Mr Mandela?)
    The collapse of the ridiculous Soviet ‘Union’.
    Catholic and Protestants signing a peace agreement in Northern Ireland. (Unbelievable!)
    Christian leaders hugging each other at this time, healing the divisions brought on by the Reformation.
    Nothing is impossible!

      “After decades of living, studying, working in Colombo with Sinhalese and give in marriage his children to Sinhalese, now this opportunist, communal, racist politikka is ‘singing baila’! “

      For all the above reason he is well qualified to make a judgement about the Sinhala/Buddhist Fascist Establishment.

      Unlike you, he is not talking through his bum, he has lived through the period during which the power of the people had been stealthily passed to the handful of crooks, murderous, racist, ………………… by competitive racism which elected the winner on who could give a worse deal to the minorities basis, and the winner took all.

      And almost 70 years since independence we are still fighting for freedom, freedom of speech, good governance, rule of law, development, …………………………… That should tell you whats wrong with your stupid moronic brain.

      Isn’t it a good tactic on the part of the Sinhala/Buddhist fascist, blaming the victim.

      Were you part of the hoodlum which burnt down the library? Do you still blame the LTTE for causing the destruction? Are you blaming those who build the library in the first place, particularly at the location where the library is being sited?

        Hello, if you do NOT see Vig’s racial, communal and hatred comments, such as no Sinhalese allowed to north, no Buddhists temples in north, zero army presence in the peninsula as of Jaffna is his own back yard and more than anything else, lies lies and lies about Tamil occupancy in the north, your blind! He is actually dangerous than your late arm wing boss VP.

        I think you are very eager to put the Library issue easily to the common Sinhalaya. By doing so, your ulterior motive is to justify the bombings of Dalada Maligava, carnage of Arantalava, Dimbulagala Hamuduruwo, massacres of so so many innocent civilians in the so called “border villages” by your once-upon-a-time arm wing LTTE. Do you want us – the Sinhalses to believe you guy Tamils are endorsing those sinful actions by barbaric LTTE?

        Though your leaders have poisoned you guys in an idiotic way Vedda, your community has not been discriminated by Sinhalese. Instead you guys were the favorites of invaders. Hence the couple of elite Tamilian families in Jaffna were eyeing for the leadership for the whole country. That failed attempt had turned your racist leaders to induce hatred among Tamils towards the majority Sinhalas. So much to say the flattery of Viggie and the club!

            Native Vedda, here is your racist guru- C. V. Vig’s pedigree. His grand farther is a cousin of Ponambalam Ramanadan and Ponnambalam Arunachalam. The members of famous Ponnambalam Kumaraswami family. Radhika and the current Central Bank boss Indrajit K are also members of the same family. All the boys of that family were Royalists. (discrimination at its best?). The current minister D. Swaminadan too has a distance relationship to this particular family. Their history begins in year 1783-1836 from “jambakola pattana” or Point Pedro. They may be good Hindus now but their beginning was other wise. Anglican Christians. The first Kumaraswamy was working as a translator to Fedrick North. He was THE highest officer to the Brits among Tamil speaking community in that era. Last but not least he was there in the white army that was going to capture the last king of SL, Sri Wickrema Rajasinghe. Great grand farthers of CBK, JRJ also were there in that particular army which captured the king. In 1819, that particular Kumaraswamy received an honor from the Brits imperialists for the “service” he had rendered to the thorn.

            That was how your boss’s received the privileges received from Brits. And that was how they enjoyed the super status here in SL. But still lament of “discrimination”! And, NV, you guys are just bellowing to them!

    It cannot be said better. Why our Sinhalese leaders cannot sense this truth is they are thinking of robbing the country all the times. Brainwashing the Sinhalese Buddhists only leads to more misery. Interesting to note that Sinhalese Buddhists are indeed Tamil Buddhists of the past.

      Thanks for saying what ails the Sinhalese leaders.
      Even if Wiggy says Tamils are prepared to give in to all their unreasonable demands, they will still blame Tamils to brainwash the Sinhale and keep them mentally prejudiced to loot and rob them. That’s how scared are they about losing control of their people.
      Remember what JRJ said about starving Tamils-to keep Sinhalese happy?

    What he states is 100% correct

    What stands in the way of Tamil political ambition is majority of them living in areas outside NE and and strong desire to continue to do so. They sense some inherent superiority in the Sinhala Buddhist society. I am one Sinhalese who strongly support the idea of a Tamil Homeland in North East for all Tamils(Tamil speaking people) provided an arrangement could be worked out for relocation of all Tamils into NE. Simple logic is the moment you demarcate a particular area as Tamil Homeland the rest of the island becomes Sinhala Homeland. The crafty maneuvering of Tamil political class to establish ” North and East for us and the rest for all of us” concept will lead to an extremely intense conflict for it is nothing but naked aggression. International community will have to look at both sides of the issue. If a solution is imposed by the International community against the will of the Sinhala majority the natural reaction would be to treat the Tamils who are refusing to move out as second class citizens. I bet my last rupee that even that they will consider as preferable to living in a caste ridden hell hole similar to what their brothers in the estates chose when arrangements were made to live within an environment of their own language, culture and religion.

    Breaking Law: So what our Wiggy is proposing is that we should violate the Local Law in order to obey the International Law. Great idea! I support it because if I oppose it may be CT will be put under pressure to ban me.

    Hey, on further thought, what I am doing is exactly opposite to what he is proposing. Do not break the Nazi German Hydra Law so that CT will not have to break its own Laws (I mean rules).

      Edwin, you have undoubtedly been suffering from a syndrom of rarity. You have been abused by some in SL and now in Middle East so that you cant work by your own. That may be the reason you to be very negative back and forth: I really dont think if anything comes from you – positive.

      This you have proved not once but several dozens of times. We dont need any experts to analyse your profile. Just attacking others but not being able to see it in you – you ve been harming all or us here.

      Let me advise you the gowigama rodrigo please- believe in your conscience if you have any. That can help your way. Else like a dog, you would have to end up sooner than later.

You don’t seem to like my comment above. You say the people in Sri Lanka and ME have been abusive toward me and that I cannot work on my own.

        Please teach me how to amend my cmment above. Or Better still please write a comment for me and publish it as if I have written it. I will send my email to you for that. I am sure you can make me positive.

        But Mr Samson Sir, tears came to my eyes when I read that I have been harming all of you there (here). What do you mean by ‘us’ and ‘here’ ? I guess here means EU but what does ‘us’ mean?

        You can make me a Tamil, Muslim or even an Arab. But something that you can never do is to change my caste. I have been brought up to be proud of my caste. We never allow Dhobies to sit on our chairs or allow the Bathgamayas sit at our table. I am sorry, but other than that, I will be like clay in your hands. So let us start shall we?

          Get it correct Mr, you are no right to call someone as Mr Samson; it should be either Mr Guna or just Samson. ( Mr + Surname not Mr + First name) okay ?

          Us means – we the CT readers that have been adding their comments to the articles published by CT

          Here means – on CT platform

          I am afraid, I really dont have to waste my time with you any more. However I have to respond to you.

          I, as a srilanken but got educatin both in SL and Europe, am not into castes even if my elders practised it.

          I know they too did not want laundry men, domestic servants cinnamon peelers
          sitting with them while taking meals
          But gone were the days our people treated own folks that way. Very same people treated minorities even going beyond. As a result, we fought a war went on to 3 decades. Now few decades later, people have changed their attitudes to all levels while your nature ones remained unevolved — anyways, I really dont care about caste, religion or anything, what matters me is the person.
          .
          Perhaps, let me check this with my relatives in London (they are in your age group ) – they I think can help me in that regard.

          We really dont have anything in common Mr Rordrigo if we constantly talk about caste.. I always hate that to be the topic….. but please carry on….. that is your issue. ( I even dont think that Rodrigos are Gowigama – since the linealogy proves those surnames to have been adapated to lanken names later).

          Let this be the last line to you – Good luck – I am for a PEACEFUL SRILANKA for all of us-born to lanken soil. Then future generations would be grateful to their parents.

            Mr. Goo, so you have relatives in England? Why not learn some English from them? Not BBC English pf course, which they will not understand, but something like pidgin English, which would help you to make better comments.

            You say, “Us means – we the CT readers”. So, you think I am not a CT reader? Do you have exclusive rights to CT? You demand equal rights for your Tamil race and tell us not to consider your caste as low. But you consider yourself to be having more rights, in CT? You are nothing but a Toiletarian (sorry Totalitarian). So forget it.

            You fought a war for 3 decades? On remote from Europe? What was it some kind of video game? Samson was a towering and powerful demi God. The only thing that is towering about you is the first part of your name – Goo.

              Dear Edwin Rodrgo,

              I’ve let the misspelling of your name remain. It is no crime.

              *

              We have major problems in our country, and this ought to be a serious discussion, but Samson Gunawardhana and you have very nearly hijacked this site. What private feuds the two of you have, I don’t know. We, readers, cannot work out all the esoteric connotations of what you write, but you have been the more decent of the two.

              As for Samson Gunawardhana, I know that caste differences are shown in the way your surname is spelt. The distinction has been explained to me – forgotten by now. Even my father has passed a funny spelling of my name. I’ve passed the oddity on to my children without being bothered about significance because we all like a unique identity, I guess.

              *

              But all this garbage on a public website? Why not get each others contact details, and settle your differences? This is so boring to others – and has no wider significance or applicability.

                Sinhala_Man,

                I always respect your comments.
                I consider them as serious thoughts coming from your heart.

                But please go back to previous posts of Edwin and accuse of me of being that rude. I dont even consider castes. But Edwin attacks everyone calling himself as Gowigama.
                To that only I added above comment. Sorry once again if my posts caused you any inconvenience. I am more into equal rights to us all. I dont care race, religion or whatever the person brings with. What matters me the person. Thanks.

                  And thanks, Samson.

                  It may be that my thoughts are a little too serious!

                  I wasn’t sure whether the two of you were jesting, or what. That is the problem with sarcasm. Guys with less intelligence like me (called “Tube Lights”) sometimes take things too seriously. I wonder if you know that Jonathan Swift was beaten up for writing this?

                  http://www.gutenberg.org/files/1080/1080-h/1080-h.htm

                  He said that the children of the poor could be slaughtered at age one year, cooked and eaten. There was politics in the background as well.

                  What those who took offense didn’t realise was that Swift did NOT approve of talking of people as though they were animals.

                  *

                  Thanks for your civil response, and I’m sorry if I was rather too harsh on you. I was pleasantly surprised by the positive things you’ve said about my own comments.

                  *

                  The bottom line is, how on earth does this country get steered in to a better situation? So many of the difficulties that we encounter could have been avoided.

                Goodbye from Edwin: Sinhala_Man, that is very decent of you. If my comments annoy you so much, this is going to be my last comment. Hopefully, there will be perfect consensus and peace – the light of wisdom and the silence of the tomb.

                I will not know whether this will be so because I am not going to open this site again. If I open it and read, I am tempted to comment. I do not want to go through that again. More importantly, I do not want to put any of you through all that again. Most of all I do not want to dishonor my teacher Prof Kumar David.

                If I have hurt the feelings of anyone, which I must have surely done, I apologize. I really meant to hurt, and I know I was successful. I am usually successful in such things. But I feel that it is time to go. I do not get any material benefits from writing comments – only the mental satisfaction. By not commenting in this site I do not lose anything. It is really a boon. I can spend my time on more profitable and more pleasurable things.

                The problem is that I do not know how to say Goodbye. They say, men do not know how to say Goodbye and Women do not know when to say Goodbye. It is especially difficult to say Goodbye to CT staff, who I think must have been under immense pressure from certain factions to ban me from commenting. Not a day passed without several demanding that I be banned. It looked like an organized campaign. But CT staff withstood all that pressure in a highly professional manner. Thank you for that.

                Goodbye and Good Luck!

                  I think you should be here. Only thing I expect from you to read the article and add your comment. Just to attack commenters I think make no good to anyone.

                  Please come back ! Even if you have attacked me calling me the lowest caste man, I have to tell you that some of your comments were fine.

    “Living together in unity seems to be such a difficult task as far as our Tamil Community is concerned.”

    It is Mr. Vingeshwaran, it is.

    Tamils must unite. They must give up their differences in caste, religion and date of arrival. TNA must carry out an extensive propaganda campaign encouraging Tamils in the South to move into North East. They must give up this mentality that Sinhala Buddhist society is somehow superior. They must think of Jaffna as their homeland . They must invest their wealth in Jaffna., buy properties there. They must learn to enjoy the breeze swept over from their homeland across Palk strait. In short they must give up this desire to live in the south North is beautiful.

      This article shows the quality of Punnakky that Tamils eat. I don’t think MY3 has time to think about this. MY3 is thinking always how to save Ranil and the gang of thieves from the Decades worst bank robbery which made all the banks, employee funds bleeding. They could not catch Mahinda Rajapakse’s loot. Yet, when it was found that the Yapalanaya is thives, they think it is Mahinda Rajapakse’s work and protect each other. Will people also protect them the thieves ?. I heard more scandles come out.

        They will never be able to escape from that. He may hold speeches by travelling to India, Uganda, South Korea, Belarus, but never be able to do so in civilized part of the world. There he is no welcome. That is the saddest truth or not ?

          Bunja says, “That is the saddest truth or not” ? No it is not. For me the saddest truth is the way Queen’s English is being murdered by Nazi Hydra heads like Bunja.

          Bunja says: “Mahinda s days are numbered”. Then he says: “Please , wait few more months”. I think we have to wait years until Bunja’s head drops off due to lack of brain cells.

            Edwin, learn good English before you preach to others. Yours remains as so abusive. Cant we comment without personal attacks ? You mostly behave like a NY female prostitute ? Why ? They the prostitutes live round the clock with abusive verbal expressions even to any passers-by. YOUR CHILDHOOD SHOULD HAVE BEEN NO GOOD at all. That may be the reason you to behave so hurtful ?

            That has also got to do with your education than anything else.. Please grow up. We know you are in your early 70ties or so. Remember IH was a good writer, but you are just a trouble maker. You were banned to CT not once several times. But the next is now awaiting. Why cant you be normal ?
            You may be a die hard man made to worship MR. But there are also some that would want to see him being jailed for all high crimes he committed. I am a person that long to see serving justice to us all.

            Only wayout to you would be to see the nearest Psychologist. Hope not you would ever find a psychotherapist, since you ve been caught by isolated world in deserts. Why not you go back to the island for your therapies ?

It is like an echo in the Swiss mountains. I am a whore, I must have had a bad childhood, grow up, trouble maker, banned by CT, not normal, see a psychologist. Why not number them 1 to 100 and then you guys can easily type, Edwin you are 1, 2, 3, 4, 33, 37, 45 and so on. That will be better rather than using pidgin English.

              Burana Appu, Punnakku Bunjappu, Samson Goowardene, Reela, Ekige Malli, Sam Pusnambu etc etc, do you need so many to fight against a 68-year-old man like me? What a shame! This proves my theory. Prabha finished off all brave and smart Tamils. it is rumoured that Mara paid him Rs 50,000 for each Tiger head. What is remaining is this riff raff. The stupid cowards who cannot write 2 words of English without making 3 mistakes.

              I this medicine taunt the best you can come up with? No creativity. No variation. Same words over and over again like Hare Rama Hare Krishna. What future is there for these Tamils – and the whole TT nation. Come on guys, use your Thala Thel invigorated brains. You have used that taunt so many times that it has become like a worn out toilet bowl brush. Tell you what. Let us give it the Serial Number 3. So, you can simply say Hey Edwin ….No. 3 and then all of you can sign individually, to keep up the pretense that many Tamil Toileatarians are involved. Or you can drop the stupid pretense and sign as NHMHM (Nazi Hydra Multi Headed Monster). Take your pick.

              All these so called ‘individuals’ are equally stupid. So similar is their stupidity that the probability of them being different individuals is vanishingly small. I know that you guys cannot understand that. The Malayalees say, ‘Dafren Dafren Tamils use Dafren Dafren Names – But they do not have dafren – dafren brains – only one stupid brain’. That is why you cannot get ‘Dafren Dafren ideas. (That is from Edwin).

    His speech just goes to show, you just cannot trust the Tamils. Even the most educated and sophisticated and liberal fellow will display his Tamil racism eventually. He wants to live among the Sinhalese but still have his Jaffna place just for himself. Can you imagine a liberal educated judge saying “Firstly Tamils must unite…..Next our diaspora must be called upon…..Thirdly our Tamil brethren in South India must join hands” Incredible. In Spain he would be charged with Sedition and jailed.

      “In Spain he would be charged with Sedition and jailed.”

      Do you think so? Sri Lanka must be far more liberal than European Spain. We are so Liberal, we do not investigate crooks, nor do we charge them, nor punish them, …… instead we reward them.

      “Thirdly our Tamil brethren in South India must join hands”

      A couple of hundred years ago their ancestors were closely related to yours. In a couple of hundred years from now Sinhala Language is likely to meet its natural death.

      Sit down with your long lost South Indian cousins to find a way to stop the extinction of Sinhala language.

      You should stop searching what is under CVW’s amude and start working on “how to preserve the language”.

      Taraki,
      Nobody is stopping Sinhalese from living in the north and east provided they are willing to legally purchase land. Which is not what is going on there. Land is being stolen and handed over for free to Sinhala settlers. Most of these settlers are poor Sinhala villagers who can barely afford to eat 3 meals a day ,forget purchasing land and building housing. So they are being financed and moved around like pawns by the Sri Lankan government as part of the genocidal plan to make north and east a Sinhala buddhist area. Always remember that Tamils living in the south have to buy land. They are not evicting Sinhalese and taking land for free.

        Taraki and his/her Sinhala/Buddhist bigots are used to enjoying everything free, for example free rice from the Moon, free sil redda from Mahinda, ………………. . Now Taraki would like to have free land in the North East, a free house in the South, while living abroad, sometimes they are tempted to take even poison if distributed freely by the state.

        There are certain things that I do not understand, but the very straightforward distinction made by JohnSiva is very relevant to what is happening right now.

        *

        I’ve been on three short trips to the North during the past 15 months or so. We were a group of about 45 retired government teachers, almost all Sinhala-Buddhists (of a decent sort, and the number varied for the three trips). For most the primary motive was to “worship” at ancient Buddhist shrines, although well nigh all paid their respects to the Hindu deities as well. They were not crudely racist. Only three of us were of a more secular mind-set.

        *

        Yes, there was a good deal of settlement going on. Buddhist temples owned thousands of acres which the monks in charge were distributing. I felt that the monks were shrewd.

        *

        The claim that the temples had thousands of acres went uncontested by us. But I wonder if those were grants made by some obscure king, now long forgotten. There may be lots of more valid claims. In the present climate, who is to arbitrate?

        *

        We must not allow these men in yellow robes to create problems for the future. We, Sinhalese have cultural values that we cherish; surely we have to recognise the right of Tamils to have equal rights. It may not be healthy to have almost no Sinhalese living in certain parts of the country, but that certainly cannot be put right in this crude way.

    Oh! Wiggi! Don’t be a humbug. The cardinal accusation he makes of the majority community is to accuse it with a philosophy “Tamils leave us! If not prepare to live under our yoke”, thus finding an excuse for separation. The fact is that you want to rabble rouse but you don’t provide the population in the Northern Province what you ought to provide. As some body learned from Hong Kong once said you dance can be described as a political Kavadi dance. Oh! God! When will this man get some sense so that he can provide within the means of his authority the best and make a claim that if he is given more he can do better? The answer to my question is never because if he does so that will be his end in the North. Anybody with a sense knows that Jaffna is still a haven to “export” cheap entertainment to European perverts. The escapade of “Swiss Kumar” and the murder of that poor girl is one such incident. Amidst the political noise, the underlying uneasy situation is a concern and Wiggi has to be conscious of that for his survival.

      I heard Tamil women come to colombo now in groups. some of them twit to sinhala boys and some times ask, Mathaya marry me, I will be a good wife”. I think sinhala boys should consider them. they will be good wives. convert them to sinhala buddhists.

          we have to react collectively against Edwin the srilanken Nazist. and Champawathie. Both proved their ablities to be nazists. I simply dont know what steps we need to take next. Punnakku did not help Champa yet.

          Edwin has been planning a Nuremberg style trial in his native place where he has been abused all along his childhood. Whatever comes from his cesspit is hurtful. This man is believed to be making all devisions even within sinhala race. According to him he belongs Gowigama/but his behaviours prove other way around. Punnaku cant help him neither Champa or Edwin.

              These elderly single men working in the ME are a class by themselves. They have no families (wives have deserted), no morals, but plenty of money. So they have multiple girlfriends, use gutter language all the time , and usually end up as lonely wretches discarded by their relatives.

            White Flag: Oh My God, the Kalaveddah . Yes it is true that I waved a white flag at the Kalaveddah. I will wave 100 more to keep him away. Burampi, you have done a very clever thing by bringing in this disgusting animal. I can fight with 100 humans single handedly but I cannot fight with one animal like that. It is the smell you know. It is like the Mustard gas your Nazis used.

            The moment I said that I live in Matugama this Kalaveddah found his way to my home in Matugama. Perhaps he uses a Samsung with GPS like Nimal the coconut picker. He got in to my ceiling with his Klaveddi and started his games.

            Do you know that the Kalaveddahs urinate on each other during foreplay. They say it gives them an extra boost of sexual arousal – much like the Solid Rocket Boosters (SRB) of EU Araiane rockets. I don’t know whether you have experienced the smell of KV urine. The Book of Smells classifies it as 9 star on a scale of 0 to 10 and mixed with their other bodily fluids it overshoots the scale to more than 15. And remember I am speaking of a log scale here – not a linear one. I know that a stupid set of guys like you will have no idea of what a log scale. Get Kumar David to explain to you.

            So don’t hold the white flag waving against me. I will do the same again if he comes. Finally, the neighbours came in a mob and burnt down my house because they could not bear the smell. You are a Bathgama Padda – but you will not fare better against his smell.

    No jargon ! Nothing but absolute truth ! But my natural impulse is asking me

    one hundred percent peaceful Muslims to add colour to his right prediction !
    If all happy (due to bad spine)Muslims are not tolerated , what would be the
    case of all frustrated and non-stop demanding(long overdue) Tamils ? And
    one more thing the CM forgot again . The south crushed the North militarily
    not to give anything the North wanted ! TNA in which Wiggy is a member is
    not on Baby milk not to understand this ! Let’s go on like this Sir , the world
    is not going to end soon . Where is Banda ? Where is Dudley ? And where is
    Chelva ? Where is GG ? JR and Amir ? Now My3 + Ranil mixture Vs Sampa !
    With MARA chorus holding the lighter in hand ! A new situation created for

    I need to know what needs to be given? Autonomous development? You already have state Governments. or Provincial governments. So is it more revenue? more money? how about the Federal state charges Tamil students out of state tuition for going to Colombo/Peradeniya/Moratuwa top campuses and medical schools? USA charges 3 times the in-state fees for out of state students. Will you like that? Voting rights? you already have it. One man one vote or in many votes if rigging is to be considered is also your right. You have your castetist society based on backward Hindoo ideology. You do not even treat your own Tamils equal. You do not allow low caste Tamils to sit with your so called Brahmins and Vellalas. Denounce Hindooism and accept Jesus as your saviour. You will see everyone is equal in the eyes of Jesus the Lord. No more cleaner castes or brahmin castes. That is the only way for your people to emancipate.

    You do not even respect the Lower Caste Indian Tamil estate labourers. You do not even treat them with parity and you are whining? Even your rich Tamils in Colombo use these Tamil Indians as cooks and servants to clean your toilets like the Singalam rich. You do not ever let them sit with you. Accept Jesus and repent. Worship the prosperity gospel and you will flourish. Stay Hindoo and stay backward with needles through your mouths, hooks in your skin hanging from tractors the way Anthony Bourdain showed your people.

      Don’t write nonsense. You say “You do not even respect the Lower Caste Indian Tamil estate labourers” but you yourself have no respect for Tamil Hindus.

      Accept Jesus my ass. Just try your prayers when someone is dying of cancer – never works. Try telling the parents of a baby born with spinabifida or some other terrible disease that Jesus will cure them. If you want to know about Christianity google skepticsannotatedbible dot com

        Jesus could not protect himself from crucifixion. How can he protect us? If your bodyguard gets hammered by someone else, surely you will no longer employ him as one, would you?

    Very interesting article!, but unfortunately old wine in a new bottle.

    This hypothesis was articulated often at least since 1956 by different persons and at different times.

    Tamils sincerely believed and gave their full support to this theory with disastrous results.

    The Tamil unity gained momentum after 1970.

    This Tamil unity led to a series of events and went out of control.

    First formation of TULF, then Vaddukoddai resolution and then a referendum like elections and a mandate(?) from Tamils?

    Then what happened?

    The Tamils rallied around LTTE almost unanimously to a man, those dissented were named traitors and wiped out.

    International actors came in and we are not sure whom the international community supported ?
    Us or Them?

    We are still debating on this.

    There is a school of thoughts that Tamils were not defeated by the Sinhalese alone, but it was a joined effort?

    This is the history and there is a conventional wisdom that claims that history repeats may be first as a tragedy, then as a farce or vice versa!

    There is another theory that if Tamils are united Sinhalese will also unite, then what happens since they are 70% majority?

    People usually learn from history, do we refuse to learn from history and commit mass suicide?

    Now let us be practical and try to study the Tamil psyche,

    My reading is the Tamil youth in North East or in the upcountry or Colombo are indifferent and have different goals and aspirations. The Tami Nadu and Diaspora are not different?

    Just articulating a dream without any real basis just because it looks rosy,will provoke the opponents unnecessarily and destroying any chance for a democratic alternative?

    Why we habitually encourage negative thoughts?. Why shouldn’t we be optimist and always expect good to happen.

    Shall we stretch our hands of friendship for a common well being and prosperity in this country?

    Wigneswaran spewing tribal and racist venom for sometime. the govt should review all the court cases herd by him to see how fair those were and whether any racist mentality obscured the decision Wigneswaran is talking about eelam when the Tamils are burdoned with a non-fucntioning racist Castiest govt in the north. Tamils do not have only land and police powers. What else Tamils are asking. Wigneswaran was silent when VITHYA’s murderers were saved by two politicians. they were newver questioned. One whole family commiitted suidcide. wigneswaran is silent. Why don’t you ask financial powers and make your govt self seustaining. right now, even your salary, benefits and perks come from the south and it is not India, west or Dalits living in the west paying your salary. It is the maids Sinhala speaking – maids working in the middle east. What Wigneswaran doing is exploiting Tamils for votes, and keep on accusing Sinhala people just for his advantage. that is typical Tamils. They are killing each other because they do not have orumiththa nadu What I heard is Dalits are neglected by the Tamil govt because of that the federal govt in colombo.

    Dear Chief Minister Wigneswaran,

    You have called upon the Tamil people to unite in three different areas. That’s no real problem. Your rhetoric is by no means as bad as what we had from Major General Kamal Guneratne.

    *

    Yes, it is common sense for us to accept that ethnically we are the same as the Tamils, and that some of the Tamils in the North were Buddhists. It would help if you, Wiggy, were less categorical about some of your forbears, while being essentially Dravidian (as I’m sure the Sinhalese are) were also Sinhalese culturally. Also, please start trusting the non-political Sinhalese. Don’t wait for others to throw it at you that your children married Sinhalese. Proclaim it yourself; don’t ask every family to emulate it. That must flow from the free will of the next generation. But please keep referring to the experience of your own family as pointing to a possible resolution of the unnecessary rancour that has ruined so much in this country.

    *

    Plato is probably right in saying that you’re a bit too much of a pessimist. There are so many of us who refuse to agree with hate-mongers among the Sinhalese. Let us hope that you also exercise a moderating influence. Yes, I accept this present statement of yours as moderate, but please stick consistently to that line.

      Dear Sinhala_Man, It is never easy to be at variance with you. But, I am.
      *
      I am looking solely at Chief Minister Wigneswaran. Yes, he is no more the same man. His transformation is quite striking. What had brought about the changes in him.
      *
      We cannot discount his encounters and experiences, since he was elected Chief Minister. He is the very same ‘person’ who took oaths under the former President, which he didn’t have to, against all opposition from his side. But, he did. It was like he was extending a hand of friendship towards the Sinhalese brethren with whom he was never hesitant to ‘mix’.
      *
      If he is bitter now, let us look at the reciprocal treatment he has received since.
      *
      Isn’t the ball now in your court, dear Sinhala_Man.

        “Yes, he is no more the same man. His transformation is quite striking. What had brought about the changes in him.”

        It is the process by which the Sinhala/Buddhist establishment continues to undermine the successive Tamil, make them impotent in the eyes of their voters. The Sinhala/Buddhist establishment promises heaven on earth, then undermines its minority voters/leaders by dragging its feet. The noisy Sinhala/Buddhist fascist minority and the Grant Dukes of Mahasangha come very handy, and all they have to do is simply start an well organised riot. ………………. then drag their feet, …..

        The Sinhala/Buddhist fascist are pacified for another few years and the minorities are told this is not the time to discuss devolution.

        Dear Unreal,

        Yes, I had forgotten how Wigneswaran co-operated so whole-heartedly with then President Rajapaksa. I’ve checked and find that he won election as Chief Minister in July 2013. He was sworn in 15 months before MaRa lost his Presidential Election bid.

        *

        I agree with the reasoning of Native Vedda, that when the Old King was “reigning” we were afraid to speak out on the range of issues confronting us. Well, we worked hard to place a very different person in that office. He pledged to do so much. I can well imagine your disappointment, dear Unreal, when Maithri made that shocking statement promising the Sinhalese that no “war heroes” would ever be arraigned before a criminal court.

        Sirisena has proved too much a Man of Peace. He needs to be propped up by us, and Wiggy is not doing that. Perhaps he goes too far. Yet Wiggy’s words are not bloodcurdling. That was what I was struck by in my first reading. He does not say, as some Northerners do, that no Sinhalese ever lived in the so-called “Tamil Homelands”. He says that at no time did the Sinhalese live “as the Majority community” in the North. Now I note another point in his favour. He was speaking in Tamil. There is restraint still in his words.

        *
        You will notice it better, Unreal, that he has changed. Well, then, it has been because we, Sinhalese, keep telling the World that Justice will be done; then our politicians tell “our people” something different. Our inconsistency undermines the trust that people have placed in Sirisena. As for the UNP, I don’t think half the things that were chanted at election meetings were ever taken seriously by the leaders, although we persuaded ourselves that practices would changed. Tamils are justified in complaining.

        *

        Thanks, “Unreal” for pointing out my lapses. You do so without fear of my turning nasty. That I take as a personal compliment; at another level, we are demonstrating a degree of trust between the two communities.

          Let me take just one aspect of your response, ‘at another level, we are demonstrating a degree of trust between the two communities’.
          *
          Dear Sinhala_Man, There is no dearth of trust between you and me.
          *
          Tamils have lost their right to be heard. It is up to you and other well-meaning Sinhalese people to speak for both you and us.
          *
          The Sinhalese masses have been indoctrinated systematically, for decades and decades. Someone has to coach them to ‘unlearn’ those virulent lies, for the benefit of the entire nation. By no means, it is an easy task.

    Since 1987, 13th amednment worked in seven provinces. They are still there except power devolution made some rapists, thieves, criminals and some heavy expenses to maintain those hothambuwas. Northern Provincial council has proved the same. Since 2009, wiggie spewed only the tribalism and racism he has not done a simple thing. Now he shows he is dumb too. IF not why he doe snot show what he has done to the Tamils, except he is flying in and out because LTTE money earned from smuggling, prostitution of their own, bank robberies, drug business, credit card frauds and many more. He talks about Tamil history. but, Tamils themselves has proben in public media that Tamils history in Yapa patuna began because of fisher men,malayali Tamils who think they are superior to Tamilnadu dalits, thesawalamei and tobacco farming to make dutch colonuals thrive. Even your Sankili was a illegitimate – son born to a sinhala sub-king.

    Thank you sir, this will wake up some of our Tamil shameless fools.

    They have said so very clearly, no 13, no plus plus, no devolution, no federalism, no separation, no equality even under a united, unitary state with a majority Sinhala Buddhist chauvinistic Chinese colony.

    A home grown solution to this long drawn ethnic problem can never ever be resolved, and why is our Tamil leadership misleading and misguiding us all to be fooled and fooled again and again. A failed nation pretending to be smart.

    We need an international conference of all Tamil groups for a collective united voice through a UN conducted referendum for an independent separate state of Tamil Eelam.

    The Thirst of the Tamils is Tamil Eelam.

    I fully agree with the Chief Minister’s response except for one point. However, he is genuine, sincere and truthful in his approach unlike Sambanthan and Sumanthiran. I disagree with his view that the International Community would help the Tamils in their demand. The United Nations (America) is not going to help the Tamils in any way because it leaves the problem to Modi Government. The International Community will pass the buck to India and India is supportive of the Sinhala Government and not the Tamil Issue. How many times have our Tamil headship met Modi and what was the result. Nothing. The Tamils in Sri Lanka and elsewhere and the diaspora will have to unite with one voice and put pressure on the Sinhala government day in day out until the Tamils achieve their demand.

    Guys, let me introduce the next Prabhakaran. Wigneswaran. Having seen what happened in Catalonia he jumps in. Again, we are going to have Tamil fighters – which means Weapons. Weapons – which mean money. Money – which means cuts. That is OK for us. The difference is that we are prepared. They are not. Tables have been turned on them.

    For me there is a bonus. Launch a search and destroy mission to destroy the Nazi Hydra headed monster.

      “The best form of cooperation will be to let us who are here work out things by ourselves.”

      Really? It seems you didn’t even understand CM’s main point. When was the last time you were able to sort things out with your masters? Your masters won’t even treat you like a 2nd class slave unless someone from outside force your masters to do so. Don’t you still get it? What a shame!

      This was the main reason you played the hard ball and hanged on the registered mail date to reject an application for the VC post in Jaffna? By the way, I was searching Jaffna’s name in the ASIAN ranking and I couldn’t find it in top 400 in ASIA. Did you send your application by a registered mail or normal mail?

      Edwin the pseudo GOVIGAMA caste man above everything else is proved idiot.
      Not a single comment comes not attacking the messenger. That how he has been brought up. For some reasons this man is becoming beyond bearing.

      Truth is the 65 year old should have been teased by people in the area (Born Place is said to be Mathugama – but I have no idea in test tube or somewhere else when considering his abusive nature) being part of the lowest caste. I would never consider the caste of a person, but he does. That is why I respond this way.

      We know some cant make their mind up easily and become so wired like he himself. That should be his own problem that he should seek therapy options.

      Why the kind of elderly men are unable to see it beyond is the biggest puzzle to many including me.

      Please analyse his remarks being made one behind the other, most of them contain nothing but filthy loads.

      So long highly abusive men like Edwin are the part of rotten society, even thinking of a better future will remain to a dream. How can we ever thinking a peaceful country ? He stayed back in his abusive life. He even today creates devisions within sinhala race.

      Please CT, get this man away from CT. We cant tolerate him anymore.

      I just added him to be somewhat polite. But his abusive filthy language seems to have no limits. He talks about Queens langauge, but not knowing to address anyone properly. We are so disturbed by this man. Anyone stands against his remarks are tamils.

      How can we be against tamils even if we can stand against any terrorists.
      Being cornered somewhere in the deserts, not knowing the least to behave normal, how can this man Edwin ever manage to leave a comment not attacking anyone ?

      Edwin, you are an born moron. Let me call you Gondthadiya. You are the best exmaple for that.

      Wigie is from Colombo. He is brother in law of Vasidewa. Dont you know that ? And like GLP, he is also a senior professional in Law. Nevetheless, he seems to have no knowledge whatsoever when making public statements. Just because he cant control over his mouth; he just adds so.. He can never be an another Praba. Praba is no comparable to Wigie. Praba was uneducated and a guy from ordinary classes. Why you guys take it that serious ? This man has uttreed nonsence not once but several dozens of time. There are also our politicians and men of your nature too do it not thinking twice.
      But i am in the view, Wigie is no means right for his position. It is like a square peg in a round hole.

        Edwin: Tell him to tweet like Trump. Who knows, he may even become the first President of Eelam.
        Sama: Praba was uneducated and a guy from ordinary classes.
        Edwin: You mean Wiggie is a low caste Tamil Padda like you, Samsung, Dan the Doggie et al.? Never thought so.
        Sama: Just because he can’t control over his mouth.
        Edwin: We men are like that Sama. See, I am 68. But I cannot control my organs – I mean, some of them.

    Chief Minister CVW wants Tamils to unite at three levels.
    *
    “Firstly Tamils must unite….Those living in the North and East, Upcountry, Colombo and elsewhere in Sri Lanka must unite.”
    Before crossing that bridge, can the upper caste elite in the North unite with those oppressed by caste?
    There is much regionalism and male chauvinism to overcome.
    There is much to rectify in attitude towards Muslims and Hill Country Tamils.
    It is 58 years since the FP came up with the concept of “Tamil Speaking People” have the TSP united?
    *
    “Next our diaspora must be called upon to co –operate with us.”
    I remember that CVW in the months following his appointment as CM, asked the diaspora not to meddle in the political affairs of Tamils here. That was wise.
    The best form of cooperation will be to let us who are here work out things by ourselves.
    *
    “Thirdly our Tamil brethren in South India must join hands in this process of bringing unity among us all. Just as how the Jews…”
    I do not know which brethren CVW has in mind. If he has the foggiest idea of how Tamilnadu politics operates, he will beg of TN politicians to keep off our problems.
    The Israel dream still haunts the minds of Tamil elite. Israel is the curse of the Middle East and is used by the US to keep control of the oil in the region.
    Tamil nationalists as a whole lack a sense of morality when it comes to their stand on the oppressed people of the world. They side with the biggest oppressors in the world while they denounce the local oppressor.
    SHAME!

      Thanks, SJ.

      Yes, decisions regarding how Tamil culture and identity evolve must be left for you to decide.

      *

      I agree fully with all the points you have made above.

      *

      However, in certain other contexts you do seem to suggest that all those who STILL follow Christianity are criminals. I know that conversion was part of the colonial legacy, but can you put the resulting imbalances right by denying today’s Christians something at least close to equal opportunity?

      *

      With this site open to all who care to access, I think that two facts have by now been clearly established:

      FIRSTLY: There remains a major caste problem in Jaffna, and even among all Tamils residing in Sri Lanka. What would happen if the “lower castes” decided to escape by espousing one of the other religions available in Sri Lanaka, so as to escape? Let’s limit it to Buddhism, Islam, and Christianity, so as to keep discussion realistic.

      SECONDLY: This is a point for all Sinhalese people to ponder, NOT for SJ: By now most rational readers probably agree that many Tamils were at some past time Buddhists. Fortunately, I can’t see our local Sinhala-Buddhists seriously undertaking proselytizing in the North, unless it be for either political reasons or to score debating points, and insult Tamils.

      Is this anything like the lofty and noble message Gauthama sought to teach? By now, some of it must be dated, but there is much of value in it, for those who can spend the time necessary for it. All religions are based on superstition, and cause problems. Pure Buddhism is a philosophy of life with lots of deep psychological insights. But it is fast being ruined because it is taking on the worst attributes of “religion”.

      *

      Don’t all of us human beings have much to reconsider?
