Sri Lanka Deteriorates From Genocide To Religiocide

In Chemmalai in the Mullaitivu Distrct, after the army took over the lands, the Buddhist Priest at the army camp removed the Paillaiyar Temple there in 2009–2013, and attempted to construct a Buddhist Temple in its place. An Arasa Maram (Bodhi Tree) was planted with a small foot or so high Buddha Statue. The Tamil people there raised objections. The attempt was given up.

During 2015-2016 the same Monk erected a small temple-like building, like a shrine. The Pradeshya Sabha filed action objecting that its permission had not been given. Powerful Sinhalese lawyers appeared for the Monk and the Magistrate declared that he had no authority to hear the case which he said ought to be taken up by the District Court. The case was dismissed and the next day and the Monk planted a small Buddha statue there.

In 2016 the military vacated the lands it was occupying. However, the Monk continued to stay. The Archaeology Department declared the land as under its purview and named Chemmalai an Chettimalai.

As opposition mounted from locals, the Buddha Sasana Ministry asked the District Secretary to describe the area and the issues. The DS said there is no place called Chettimalai and there never had been a Buddhist Temple there. Nonetheless the work erecting the temple was not halted. The Monk removed his statue and replaced it with a large 6-feet tall statue today 17 Nov. 2018. The opening ceremony for the statue is scheduled for tomorrow Sunday 18 Nov.

A UNP man declared that if there are elections, no Sinhalese candidate will be able to count on Tamil votes after this.

Member of Parliament Shanti Sriskantharajah says the fire-hurry is to get the opening done during the cyclonic storm Gaja so that no one will come objecting. 

She says that Genocide is now taking the form of religiocide, and that no civilized government can countenance this.

Reporting for Colombo Telegraph by N. Logathayalan from Chemmalai

Editor’s Note: Today, Sunday, after massive protests from the public, the police removed all decorations for the opening at the temple, and forbade its opening for now.

    A bunch of Tamil politicians and Tamil nationalists built a Hindu kovil on top of a archeological reserve land. They used the remains of a historical buddhist temples to build it. And there was a court order against it. It is not religiocide (no word like that exist ) but demolition of unnecessary new building in protected archeological reserve.

      Oh really ! Another Mahvamsa fairy tale recently concocted by a mad Buddhist monk and the archeological department to claim an ancient Saivite site as Buddhist. This is a new trick by the government, privately owned Tamil lands are released by the army with lots of publicity and fanfare , the owners then, are not allowed to return and take possession of these lands, as these lands will the soon claimed by the department of forestry or archeological department,stating that these lands have now been demarcated as forest reserves or these lands are all part of a newly declared archeological reserve land , with remains of historical Buddhist temples. This is a plot hatched by Sinhalese politicians, government officials and the establishment to claim these privately owned Tamil lands under all sorts of pretexts that previously never existed for Sinhalese colonisation. Private Tamil lands now earmarked forest reserves , to be later released to Sinhalese settlers, as agricultural lands. Tamil lands and destroyed Hindu temples grabbed by the archeological department , under the pretext , that these lands contain sites of ancient Buddhist temples are later released to Sinhalese settlers again, with the archeological department declaring , that indeed , there were ancient Buddhist temples and Sinhalese settlement in these lands , and therefore it is right , that Buddhist temple should be built here and the lands released to Sinhalese. Religion and fake concocted history used as tools of genocide by the Sinhalese state. Strange all these ancient Buddhist temples and sites , seem to be found only in the Tamil areas, where there is no history of Sinhalese ever living in these areas , and not in the Sinhalese south .All this only after the defeat of the LTTE , not before. Even the Mahavamsa fairy tale admits to the fact the lands to the north and east of the island were Tamil lands ruled by Tamil rulers and were never Sinhalese. If there are any ancient Buddhist sites , these are Tamil Buddhist sites and not Sinhalese.

        contd: Buddhism is not the property of the Sinhalese and these ancient Buddhist sites in the north and east are Tamil Buddhist sites and many of them belong the Mahayana sect. Sinhalese never belonged to the Mahayana sect. Only Theravadha but Tamil Buddhist belonged to both. Now Sinhalese want to claim anything Buddhist in the island as Sinhalese and it is not. It was the ancient Tamil Buddhist who propagated Buddhism to SE Asia and to NE Asia. Buddhism spread to most of Asia, largely due to the efforts of ancient Tamil Buddhists. Sinhalese never did anything. Tamil Buddhist monks enriched Buddhism in the island. You can look at all the ancient ruins Hindu and Buddhist in SE Asia and they are typically Tamil and Dravidian from the Chola rule. It was a Tamil Buddhist monk named Bodhidharma who transmitted Chan Buddhism to China than led to Shaolin and Kungfu in Japan. Even in the ancient Mahavihara in Anuradhapura, the monks had to have a compulsory knowledge of Pali Sanskrit and Tamil. No Sinhalese and many of the famous Buddhist scholars were Tamil Buddhist monks. There are no Sinhalese Buddhist classics but famous Tamil Buddhist classics like Manmekalai and Kundalekesi , mention about ancient Tamil Buddhists living in the island .

          British archaeological officers including HCP Bell who excavated sites in N & E had reported they are Buddhist sites. They did not mentioned about a single Hindu site. If they are Hindu sites why don’t tamils allow to excavate them and restore them (no need to settle Buddhist monks in these sites). What happened to the Soodakuda Buddhist ruins. A day before to start excavations it was bulldozed by some Tamils. It is wrong and misleading that saying “Tamil Buddhists” in this comment. It should be corrected as “Dravidian Buddhists”. Very famous Buddhist monk Buddhaghosha who lived in Anuradhapura 5th century and translated Buddhist scriptures (Thripitaka) from Sinhala to Pali was from Andra Pradesh India, not from Tamilnadu. Sri Lankan Theravada tradition still considers his translations as their holy scriptures. The important fact is that later Buddhism vanished in India including Dravidian south. Tamils migrated and settled in northern & eastern parts of Sri Lanka after that. This is why we.can’t find a single inscription from north & east with a name of a Tamil person.

            Lets assume that all these are real historical Tamil people, but the question is what do you want us to do about it? What is the connection between the people mentioned above and the Tamil claims to a separate state in the Sinhalese island? Doesn’t that list show that all of Tamil history is in Tamilnadu?

      Sach…u..
      Sinkeleayas are not so educated like Tamils. As Jaffna Library was set on fire by jealousy Bootha sinkeleyass. its a history.
      Religio- cide = Religiocide means Destruction of a Religion. Get educated or Go to your original place – ie. Jungle.
      And Boothayas always crab others Lands by putting a Budda’s Statue at midnight crawling into their lands , and then come in the morning with Sinkele rowdies and Kaavi Hingannayas to claim that the Land belongs to pansal and or archaeological site. !! Thus Siddaratha’s so called statue became ” HORA BUDDA ” used to steal others property and still call Buddism is way of life.. SHAME..!!

      Sach,
      Whether it was Hindu site or Buddhist site, all those are Tamils’ archaeological sites. Tamils brought the Buddhism to Ceylon. Tamils brought the Hinduism to Ceylon. Just let them have the land and you withdraw the Ayatollahs out of there.

      Elarla is a Buddhist Tamil; Dutugamunu is a Hindu Tamil. What is bigge?

      Who are you and what are you doing there man?

      Please… be out!

      Have got proof to substantiate your utterance, according to Mahavamsa Pali version (original)written in the 5th century why nut in Sinhalese? Because this language originated in the 8th century? a mixture of Tamil( ,elu) and Pali languages. the grammar written by a Tamil person.When Prince Vijayan and his 700 odd rebels, landed near puttalamby Kalathony there were Yakas and Nagas living the Island.They were Tamilians Denalu. Buddhism was spread by King Asoka in 143 BE about 400 years after death of Gautama Buddha at age 80.There were 5 famous siva temples in the Island Lanka, Ravana was a sivapakthan, his mother last rights took place in Trinco, Kathagama[ Kathir gamam] temple for Murugan, Thamilian God was not build by Sinhalese.”Please do not be like the frog in the Well” Thank you be little broad mindedness! Island belongs to many Ethnic groups It is not solely for Sinhalese Buddhist OKAY. Hope you understand the history of the past.There were Tamil Buddhist too in this Island of Lanka Being converted from Hinduism then King Deva nambi theesan and his people.By king Asoka’s Emissaries Mahintha and Sangamitha. When Mahanama started to realize that the people in South India and Lanka by 4th century were.Seeking to which religion,.That their forefathers had belong too. Then, they stared to leave Buddhism and reverted back to Hinduism.I feel this was a valid reason for Mahanama to lament/fear that Buddhism might be wiped out of Lanka. This provoked him and his nephew the King to save Buddhism getting wipe out of the Island and he went to South India to see for himself the situation to write this distorted/fake history of Sinhalese.,origin.

    A buddhist monk in Batticaloa vihara scold a Tamil civil servant in vulgar language and police are just watching.
    These monks when IPKF occupied this country and LTTE was at peak were hiding under bed and now bark a lot.
    Are these monks are above the law?
    All Viharas in this country must undergo a horizontal aracheoligal survey ,probabaly built over Hindu temples in the past like what is happening in N-E today.
    There are records Chola kings built many Viharas here,at that time there lived Tamil Buddhists.

    He He He among Hindu population Buddhist Viharas are being build with army protection.
    This is not King Deva Nambiya Tissan time ( he is a Tamil or Sinhala but sure he was a Hindu ) for the public to follow Kings

      Perhaps that is why the Sinhala Buddhist converted kathirkamam Murugan temple to a Buddhist Temple. Similar attempts are being made to Convert Thirukthiswaram, Thirukoneswaram and the like to Buddhist Temples, despite the fact that Buddha was a HINDU and he did not preach any new religion…

        Kataragama Devalaya is not a Buddhist temple. There are no Buddha statutes in it. But there is an ancient Buddhist chetiya (Kiri Vehera) close to this Devalaya. Buddhist gods (eg. God Sakra) are not worshipped by Buddhists. Buddha did not preach to worship gods. But Buddhist general public wants support of gods for their day to day matters. Hindu gods fill that vaccum. Trinco Thirukonesvaram temple is built upon the ancient Gokanna Buddhist temple site.

When the hindu temple was destroyed by Portuguese in 1621 new year day the catholic priest accompanied the forces have drawn and documented the picture . At present that document is in Lisban archive.the culvert made in 9th century in tamil with double fish (pandiya flag) is at the fort fredrick door stop.

    Who are these prominent Sinhalese lawyers protecting these Sinhalese racists and occupying armed forces to commit genocide destroy Hindu temples and build Buddhist Viharas over them. These people are aiding and abetting genocide ethnic cleansing and war crimes and should be named and shamed publicly and cases brought against them. Tamil individuals and businesses should boycott these racist lawyers , so should Sinhalese with some form of conscience.. This proves amply proves that the occupying Sinhalese armed forces , Sinhalese government officials and mad Buddhist monks , are in the north and east for only one purpose to commit genocide and Sinhalise the ancient Saivite Tamil north and east , using force and all the resources of the government and Sinhalese establishments and businesses,. They all should be chased out, together will all these illegal Sinhalese settlers , settled on stolen Tamil land. This also proves despite fighting amongst themselves, all these Sinhalese politicians and parties unite when it comes to oppressing Tamils and stealing their lands. Imagine installing a Buddha statue and having an opening ceremony with the protection of the armed forces on released private Tamil lands , when all this political chaos is taking place in the capital and a cyclone is going to hit the north. This was a calculated move , as the local Tamil population will be inside their homes sheltering from the cyclone , whilst the mad Buddhist monk , the armed forces and Sinhalese extremists are installing Budda statues and having opening ceremonies. Shows the chaotic , racist genocidal and mad Sinhalese mindset.. Installing Budda statues in Tamil areas and having opening ceremonies during a cyclone. This incident also proves what I had always stated , Sinhalese are racist to the core and this included their educated classes , professionals, so called aristocrats and elite. There is another place in Vavuniya called Vedukku Nari Malai with an ancient prehistoric Siva temple , with ancient Naga inscriptions written in Tamil.

    It is correct and can accept that Tamils have been living in northern and eastern parts of the country for few centuries and they have a right to land. But earlier there were Sinhalese people in these areas and almost all the archaeological sites in north and east are Buddhist sites. (eg. Kadurugoda in Jaffna, Thiriyaya in Trinco, and Muhudu Maha Viharaya in Pothuvil) Tamils should accept this fact and need to respect to the archaeological laws. By force placing of Buddha statutes in Tamil villages and placing Hindu statutes in archaeological sites cannot accept.

      Typical ignorant claim! You must educate yourselves on Buddhism in South India in particular in Tamil Nadu that flourished well before Sinhalese knew of the existence of it. Suggest you read Silappathikaram, Tholkappiyum, Manimekalai and many more ancient Tamil literature. Good luck to you if you can find contemporary Sinhalese literature! Archeological findings in NE do not claim to have anything that is claimed to be Sinhala or Sinhalese in culture, but Buddhist. So, please take a break and read a lot, before coming on to make false claims that Sinhalese were in NE well before the Tamils. In fact most, if not all Sinhalese of today are South Indians of Tamil origin, just as present day Keralites who speak Malayalam whose ancestry and language are rooted in Tamil. By extension, one objectively can assert that Tamils lived all over Sri Lanka from ancient times. King Ravanan was a saivaite devotee of Shiva and saivam has always been practised by Tamil speakers, even Kathirkamam where lord Murugan is worshipped is another conclusive proof of Tamils who were spread all over the island if needed!

        Racism blinds people. How can there be Sinhalese place names in North & East.. Eg. Madakalapuwa, Yapanaya etc.., Manipay (Minipe), Waddukoddai (Wadugoda), Mallakam (Mallagama), Kantale (Gantalawa) are Sinhalese place names distorted by Tamil pronounciation. Ravana is a myth, he is not a historical person. All the inscriptions of N&E are in Sinhala Prakrit and non of these inscriptions mentions a single Tamil name. There is no at least a single Tamil inscription in N&E. Please read H.C.P. Bell’s archaeological reports. True, there were Tamil Buddhists in India. They co-existed with Hindu Tamils & Jain Tamils. But later these Buddhist Tamils were converted again to Hinduism. Tamils migrated to this country later and in that period there were no Buddhist Tamils. Sinhalese Buddhist people worship Hindu gods due to the Tamil cultural influence during Kotte and Kandian periods. Anthropoligical evidence supports the idea that Singalese people migrated from North India.

          Don’t make a fool of yourself. When did pure Tamil names like Mattakallapu , Yaalpaananm , Maipai Vattukotai, Mallakam, Kantalai become Sinhalese place names. Sinhalese vocabulary is 40% Tamil derived, this means almost half the present day Sinhalese vocabulary is derived from Tamil and now stating original ancient Tamil names are Sinhalese. Of course it will sound similar as almost half the Sinhalese vocabulary is Tamil derived or from the indigenous semi Tamil dialect Elu. Now giving Sinhalese twist to original Tamil place names and calling them Sinhalese. Go and google and read the meaning of Kallapu in Tamil Kottai in Tamil and Yaal Pannam . Kamam in Tamil means a place where agriculture takes place and this means a village . Tamil Kamman became Sinhalese gama. This means as per you Allepai in Kerala ( Tamil Chera Nadu) is derived from Sinhalese. Sinhalese from North India ? Most of you Sinhalese are purely descended from South Indian ( Tamil ) invaders and immigrants. 50% of the present day Sinhalese are purely descended from low caste/untouchable Indian Tamil indentured/slave labour that was imported in to the island during the Portuguese/Dutch era. They were settled along the southern and western coasts and now their descendants have hanged their language. religion and identity and call themselves Sinhalese Buddhists or Catholics. Even many of your so called upper castes and aristocracy , especially Kandy is from South India( Tamil and some Telugu). The Sinhalese word “Govi” for farmer , the highest Sinhalese landowning farmer caste” Govigamma” is Tamil derived. Govi means to reap or pluck, what a farmer does and this is derived from the ancient Tamil word ” Koi” or Koiuthal meaning to reap or pluck . Gamma from Tamil Kammam. The exclusive North Indian origin of the Sinhalese has been now proven to be a lie. Sinhalese DNA is 70% Indian Tamil and 25% Bengali .

            Siva, your comment shows your insufficient knowledge regarding the subject. There are many thousands of words in English language with French, German, Itslian, Greek, and Latin origins. Actually some English words are from Hindi , Tamil & Sinhala. It shows the richness of the English. Yes, there are many words with Tamil origin in modern day Sinhala language. It is good and it enhances capacity of Sinhala. There are many similar words in both Sinhala & Tamil with Sanskrit origin. Tamil kiramam, kamam & Sinhalese gramaya, gama all are from Sanskrit “Grama”. It is not a original Tamil word. From which sources have you got those percentages, pl. mention. Influence of Sanskrit language in all languages with IndiIan origin is a well established fact. Sinhalese & Tamils came and settled in this island from different parts from India in different periods. Historical and anthropological studies of scholars prove this fact. Other things you have mentioned in your comments are nonsense so need not to comment.

        Murugan and Kataragama Deviyo are not the same God. It is only very recently that Murugan has been started to be worshiped at Kataragama. Murugan is the Hill God of Tamilnadu. Murugan’s domain never extended outside the Hilly areas of Tamilnadu. Tamil immigrants who came here during Portuguese time started worshiping at Kataragama and setup their own shrine to Murugan first and then later tried to transform the Sinhalese God Kataragama into Murugan. Sinhalese too have adopted some worship forms from Tamils especially due to influence from Tamil priests, sages and holy men, but Kataragama deviyo is still distinct from Murugan. I think Gods are universal, and Murugan and Kataragama deviyo will continue to evolve into whatever the people want them to be, blessing who deserves their blessings, whether they call the God, Kataragama or Murugan.

      Stop posting nonsense . Tamils have been living in the north and east from time immemorial and even you Mahavamsa fable admits to this ., It has constantly referred to the lands in the north and east of the island as Tamil lands ruled by Tamil rulers. Now Sinhalese extremist constantly quoting Mahavamsa fable are even trying to alter and edit the fable and create a new Mahavamsa fable. There is no record anywhere of Sinhalese packing up their bags from the north and east and moving south on a large scale and Tamils moving here from South India. In fact historical records show that Tamil have been occupying the north and east continuously since ancient times and even in the south. Other than a few border villages the Sinhalese presence in the north and east is nil and population statistics prove this. Sinhalese only arrived in the north and east after independence . Deliberately settled by successive Sinhalese governments since independence on stolen Tamil lands to change the demography and make the Tamils a marginalised voiceless minority in their own lands. They have succeeded this in the east and now doing the same in the north. Sri Lankan Tamils are the descendants of the original Dravidian tribes and the immigrants who arrived from north east India and they have very little Indian Tamil immigrant blood and their DNA proves this. Sinhalese on the other hand are largely descended from Indian Tamil immigrants /invaders and their DNA proves this. The original Sinhalese like the Sri Lankan Tamils were descended from the indigenous Dravidian tribes and NE Indian immigrants but present day Sinhalese are not This is why the Sri Lankan Tamils and the original Sinhalese share a 55% DNA as they were one and the same people. .

        LMAO. Nobody needs DNA studies to find out where the Tamils in Srilanka came from. Doing DNA studies on Srilanka Tamils to find out where they came from, is like doing a DNA test to find out where your own leg or arm came from.

        Also there is no DNA study which states any of what you say. Where did you find original Sinhalese to do DNA studies? You are incredibly dumb. I can’t help laughing at Siva Sankaran Sarmas’s nonsense claims.

    Religiocide? Another word added by us?
    .
    The term ‘bibilioclasm’ is used if books are set on fire to suppress dissent. Few example are, the burning down of the Alexandria (c.49), the Library of US Congress (1814), the Nazi Book burning (1933) etc.
    The burning of Jaffna Library (1981) was the mother of all and led our contribution to the term bibiliocide”.

Some historians are convinced that millions died. Haa… Haa…

    Come on Tamils.
    Be part of some democratic movement to get rid rid of this racists of the xenophobic kind in the archaeology field who are claiming all civilisation started in Sri Lanka with the arrival of Sangamithra.
    If Tamils do not become part of the movement to uphold democracy, they will miss another opportunity to resolve their constitutional rights and win over the confidence of democratic community.

      Absolutely, Tamils should be part of this movement and must surely extend their fullest support to restore democracy to its true form and on that score our Sinhala brethren should not have any doubt about it. One only needs to look back to the pre-1977 era when Tamil leaders were part of the democratic fabric of the country and indeed played important roles despite all forms discrimination against them began to take shape post independence and continues to this day unabated under the guise of ‘pseudo’ democracy aimed at subjugating and dominating Tamils of NE with the help of armed forces.

    Ancient kingdoms and ethnic groups had natural borders, like mountains, large rivers or oceans or deserts or some natural barriers that hinders free movement of people. In Sri Lanka there are no such natural boundaries except maybe between the hill country and low country, even that is not a big enough barrier to hinder people moving freely between the two areas. How do you think Tamil language managed to be in this island from time immemorial as you claim without even slightly showing some affinity towards Sinhala or Vedda languages? Linguistically its simply not possible. Another linguistic impossibility is that the Tamil language mysteriously parallels the same evolution of the language as in Tamilnadu lying some 50 miles across the ocean. What you are claiming for both the Tamil language and your most appalling theories for the Sinhala language do not make any sense. All your fanatical Tamil theories are very badly thought out and just too stupid to waste time on.
