Sri Lanka Sets Dangerous Trends For The Effective Functioning Of UNHRC

By Rev. S.J. Emmanuel –

Rev. Dr S.J. Emmanuel

Rev. Dr S.J. Emmanuel

We are pleased to welcome wholeheartedly the statement of the High Commissioner calling for a – more fundamental and far-reaching accountability process in Sri Lanka, addressing both past and ongoing violations, which are absolutely necessary for Sri Lankans to come to terms with their past, end impunity, achieve reconciliation between communities and strengthen the rule of law.

Though the war ended in May 2009, the conflict has in fact been deepened during these last five years by the policies of the present Government. The President of Sri Lanka  made promises at the conclusion of the war – to the General Secretary of the UN as well as to all the countries that helped him with finances and weapons, to win the war, that he will soon find a political solution to the ethnic conflict and seek national reconciliation. Unfortunately, what is happening within the country, the actions of the Government in increasingly violating Human Rights, especially in the North and East of the island, are very disappointing if not disastrous.

With the euphoria of a majority military conquest  over the minorities,  the Government is operating a fast program   of ethnic cleansing and making no sincere efforts towards justice, peace and reconciliation. Its priorities are towards making Sri Lanka a Sinhala Buddhist country by subjugating all ethnic and religious minorities by the use of extremist forces.

In this context, the efforts of the Office of the High Commissioner towards establishing truth and accountability with regard to the war give  us hope for the survival of Tamils and other ethnic and religious minorities to survive as human beings with equality, dignity and justice.

It is very unfortunate, that the present Government not only opposed this Resolution, but rejected it as violation of their sovereignty  and arrogantly refuses to cooperate with the efforts of this Council. Having enjoyed the benefits of membership in this council as well as benefits of international contracts through this Council, it is now trying to evade its responsibilities and not live up to its commitments. Such moves set dangerous trends for the effective functioning of this Council in the future and reduce the usefulness and effectiveness of this body in protecting human rights of all the people within a member-country.

      The Sinhalese lack a genuine and determined fathers like Fr Emanual and Fr Rayappu Joseph.

      They only have yakadayas like Gnanasara, Mervin Silva and the worst mass murderers Rajapakse & Co.

      The Catholic Holy His Eminence Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith in Colombo is so hole-ly that he sees Jesus in the vested interests. He is hiding under the petticoat of Gotabaya Rajapukse

        Well said Rev. Dr S.J. Emmanuel,

        “Its priorities are towards making Sri Lanka a Sinhala Buddhist country by subjugating all ethnic and religious minorities by the use of extremist forces.”

        You are absolutely correct in the above statement. The Sinhala Buddhist rulers, unfortunately under so-called democracy since independence from Britain, have been doing this step by step form 1948.

        They think they got the golden opportunity to do it now when the international community helped them immensely to win the war of liberation that Tamils waged against the oppressive Sinhala dominated state and its rulers.

        Mara junta is hell bent on achieving this objective which even Dutagemu didn’t attempt 2 millenniums ago.

        Mara junta is akin to the Nazi regime in Germany 8 decades ago: Will our friends succeed ethnic cleansing of Tamils, Muslims and Christian, while the Nazis were defeated after killing 6 million Jews.

        The international community that gave rise to this Sinhala Buddhist fascism by defeating the Tamils’ liberation attempt must eliminate this racist gang of mass murderer and thieves. Else this hydra-headed monster will cause instability in the region.

    This guy has no moral right to call for the accountability of the Sri Lankan government.

    Did he ever highlight the human rights abuses of LTTE? He was part and parcel of the LTTE and along with people like Rayappu Joseph he wholeheartedly supported the murderous LTTE and its leader Prabaharan.

    People like Emmanuel and Rayappu Joseph who call themselves as servants Jesus Christ are the curse of the Tamil society.

      “People like Emmanuel and Rayappu Joseph who call themselves as servants Jesus Christ are the curse of the Tamil society.”

      Well, if that is what you and kith/kin think, make this the election slogan/manifesto in the North the next time. The TNA was chastised, too, but the whipping the sinhala regime got was well known. You don’t need to speak for the Tamils, let the sinhalese leave the Tamils alone.

        Jansee,

        Precisely! Just because these scum have got individuals like KP and crowd to betray the Tamils, they are expecting all Tamils to do so.

      Tamils in general I don’t think will agree with you and most probably if you said what you said in public North of Anuradhapura people would spit on your face.

      “People like Emmanuel and Rayappu Joseph who call themselves as servants Jesus Christ are the curse of the Tamil society. “
      I don’t know about Emmanuel but Rayappu Joseph carries more respect among Tamils than the whole Rajapaksa family put together and even more respect than the Cardinal.

    Now, if I made a perfectly logical rebuttal here. However, this guy would typically mumble something without giving any rational explanation. He would then come back saying the same thing in another post.

    Its quite tragic but if he knew Buddhism the afflicts could have been identified. “I” have been extremely lucky to have been born to Buddhism. I shall unleash my infinite compassion on him and those like him in an effort to correct his ways.

    Its a story reminiscent of the Charles Dickens “Tale of two cities” really. The two cities in this context are Memphis Tennessee and Jaffna in Ceylon.

    Africans in Memphis undergo severe hardship living even in Apathied. The Malabars of Ceylon on the other hand become comparatively more affluent, even finding themselves leading in many niches.

    African Americans then produce Martin Luther King whereas the Malabars produce Chelvanayagam. Both incredible orators. Martin Luther King professors black-white unity, love etc. Malabar Chelvanayagam does the complete opposite inducing his community fear, division and depravity.

    There is no wonder where the two cities have ended up. The city that produced Martin Luther King today has also produced a leader of the free world. Whereas the fortunes of the city that produced Chelvanayagam is diametrically opposite.

    Incredible orators have an ability to change a part of the mind we know in Buddhism as “citta”. Its one of four foundations of mindfulness. Citta neither knows logic nor rationality. Its influenced by pictures, feelings and emotions. There is no language here. That is why even if I give a rational explanation to Emmanuel here, “something in his mind” will always bug him.

    Citta determine ones personality. Its not even in control of themselves, but fluctuate and alternate. Its the non-stop “mind chatter” one hears. Citta affects the whole way of being. It sets the colour of every word, actions and deeds.

    The Citta of the Jaffna folks were programmed by Chelvanayagm to feel fear. The tradition continues today under the auspices of the TNA. Fear later transfers to hatred and finally violence.

    The Citta of Memphis Tennessee folks were programmed by Martin Luther to have compassion and promote black-white unity. Compassion destroys fear, induces amity and leads people to a tranquil life. If one looks at how far African Americans have come its quite clear.

    So this is what I suggest Tamil people to do really. “Un-program” your mind of Chelvanyagam prophesy. I have read it and it incredibly flawed. Learn Buddhism, as there is where the solution to your problem lies.

      It doesn’t sound like you are a Buddhist. If you were a good Buddhist you would have an understanding of the four noble truths. In order for you to understand the world around you, in order for you to understand what is happening to Sri Lanka’s standing in the international community and what is going to happen to Sri Lanka in the near future, you must meditate on, and completely surrender to the four noble truths:
      Noble Truth # 1:
      The Tamil people have unilaterally decided that they want independence.
      Noble Truth #2:
      The creation of new countries is a part of global governance. However, the only available method for a country to be created is an independence referendum. The only way an independence referendum can be done against the wishes of the “Majority” population, is if that “Majority” is found to have committed genocide against the local population in the region that wants to become independent.
      Noble Truth #3:
      The GOSL committed genocide against the Tamil people in the NE in 2009.
      Noble Truth #4:
      Now that the Scottish independence referendum is over, the next international referendum on independence is going to take place in the NE of Sri Lanka.
      I hope you will meditate on these truths that I have revealed to you and become a better Buddhist.

      The urgent need of this land however is to liberate Buddha’s teaching from Sinhala/Buddhists, descendants of kallathonies from Coromandel and Malabar Coasts.

      Here is something that you chose to ignore:

      Buddhism and Democracy by Dalai Lama

      Washington, D.C., April 1993

      1. For thousands of years people have been led to believe that only an authoritarian organization employing rigid disciplinary methods could govern human society. However, because people have an innate desire for freedom, the forces of liberty and oppression have been in continuous conflict throughout history. Today, it is clear which is winning. The emergence of peoples’ power movements, overthrowing dictatorships of left and right, has shown indisputably that the human race can neither tolerate nor function properly under tyranny.

      2. Although none of our Buddhist societies developed anything like democracy in their systems of government, I personally have great admiration for secular democracy. When Tibet was still free, we cultivated our natural isolation, mistakenly thinking that we could prolong our peace and security that way. Consequently, we paid little attention to the changes taking place in the world outside. We hardly noticed when India, one of our closest neighbours, having peacefully won her independence, became the largest democracy in the world. Later, we learned the hard way that in the international arena, as well as at home, freedom is something to be shared and enjoyed in the company of others, not kept to yourself.

      3. Although the Tibetans outside Tibet have been reduced to the status of refugees, we have the freedom to exercise our rights. Our brothers and sisters in Tibet, despite being in their own country do not even have the right to life. Therefore, those of us in exile have had a responsibility to contemplate and plan for a future Tibet. Over the years, therefore, we have tried through various means to achieve a model of true democracy. The familiarity of all Tibetan exiles with the word ‘democracy’ shows this.

      4. I have long looked forward to the time when we could devise a political system, suited both to our traditions and to the demands of the modern world. A democracy that has nonviolence and peace at its roots. We have recently embarked on changes that will further democratize and strengthen our administration in exile. For many reasons, I have decided that I will not be the head of, or play any role in the government when Tibet becomes independent. The future head of the Tibetan Government must be someone popularly elected by the people. There are many advantages to such a step and it will enable us to become a true and complete democracy. I hope that these moves will allow the people of Tibet to have a clear say in determining the future of their country.

      5. Our democratization has reached out to Tibetans all over the world. I believe that future generations will consider these changes among the most important achievements of our experience in exile. Just as the introduction of Buddhism to Tibet cemented our nation, I am confident that the democratization of our society will add to the vitality of the Tibetan people and enable our decision-making institutions to reflect their heartfelt needs and aspirations.

      6. The idea that people can live together freely as individuals, equal in principle and therefore responsible for each other, essentially agrees with the Buddhist disposition. As Buddhists, we Tibetans revere human life as the most precious gift and regard the Buddha’s philosophy and teaching as a path to the highest kind of freedom. A goal to be attained by men and women alike.

      7. The Buddha saw that life’s very purpose is happiness. He also saw that while ignorance binds beings in endless frustration and suffering, wisdom is liberating. Modern democracy is based on the principle that all human beings are essentially equal, that each of us has an equal right to life, liberty, and happiness. Buddhism too recognises that human beings are entitled to dignity, that all members of the human family have an equal and inalienable right to liberty, not just in terms of political freedom, but also at the fundamental level of freedom from fear and want. Irrespective of whether we are rich or poor, educated or uneducated, belonging to one nation or another, to one religion or another, adhering to this ideology or that, each of us is just a human being like everyone else. Not only do we all desire happiness and seek to avoid suffering, but each
      of us has an equal right to pursue these goals.

      8. The institution the Buddha established was the Sangha or monastic community, which functioned on largely democratic lines. Within this fraternity, individuals were equal, whatever their social class or caste origins. The only slight difference in status depended on seniority of ordination. Individual freedom, exemplified by liberation or enlightenment, was the primary focus of the entire community and was achieved by cultivating the mind in meditation. Nevertheless, day to day relations were conducted on the basis of generosity, consideration, and gentleness towards others. By pursuing the homeless life, monks detached themselves from the concerns of property. However, they did not live in total isolation. Their custom of begging for alms only served to strengthen their awareness of their dependence on other people. Within the community decisions were taken by vote and differences were settled by consensus. Thus, the Sangha served as a model for social equality, sharing of resources and democratic process.

      9. Buddhism is essentially a practical doctrine. In addressing the fundamental problem of human suffering, it does not insist on a single solution. Recognising that human beings differ widely in their needs, dispositions and abilities, it acknowledges that the paths to peace and happiness are many. As a spiritual community its cohesion has sprung from a unifying sense of brotherhood and sisterhood. Without any apparent centralized authority Buddhism has endured for more than two thousand five hundred years. It has flourished in a diversity of forms, while repeatedly renewing, through study and practice, its roots in the teachings of the Buddha. This kind of pluralistic approach, in which individuals themselves are responsible, is very much in accord with a democratic outlook.

      10. We all desire freedom, but what distinguishes human beings is their intelligence. As free human beings we can use our unique intelligence to try to understand ourselves and our world. The Buddha made it clear that his followers were not to take even what he said at face value, but were to examine and test it as a goldsmith tests the quality of gold. But if we are prevented from using our discrimination and creativity, we lose one of the basic characteristics of a human being. Therefore, the political, social and cultural freedom that democracy entails is of immense value and importance.

      11. No system of government is perfect, but democracy is closest to our essential human nature. It is also the only stable foundation upon which a just and free global political structure can be built. So it is in all our interests that those of us who already enjoy democracy should actively support everybody’s right to do so.

      12. Although communism espoused many noble ideals, including altruism, the attempt by its governing elites to dictate their views proved disastrous. These governments went to tremendous lengths to control their societies and to induce their citizens to work for the common good. Rigid organisation may have been necessary at first to overcome previously oppressive regimes. Once that goal was fulfilled, however, such rigidity had very little to contribute to building a truly cooperative society. Communism failed utterly because it relied on force to promote its beliefs. Ultimately, human nature was unable to sustain the suffering it produced.

      13. Brute force, no matter how strongly applied, can never subdue the basic human desire for freedom. The hundreds of thousands of people who marched in the cities of Eastern Europe proved this. They simply expressed the human need for freedom and democracy. Their demands had nothing to do with some new ideology; they were simply expressing their heartfelt desire for freedom. It is not enough, as communist systems have assumed, merely to provide people with food, shelter and clothing. Our deeper nature requires that we breathe the precious air of liberty.

      14. The peaceful revolutions in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe have taught us many great lessons. One is the value of truth. People do not like to be bullied, cheated or lied to by either an individual or a system. Such acts are contrary to the essential human spirit. Therefore, those who practice deception and use force may achieve considerable short-term success, but eventually they will be overthrown.

      15. Truth is the best guarantor and the real foundation of freedom and democracy. It does not matter whether you are weak or strong or whether your cause has many or few adherents, truth will still prevail. Recently, many successful freedom movements have been based on the true expression of people’s most basic feelings. This is a valuable reminder that truth itself is still seriously lacking in much of our political life. Especially in the conduct of international relations we pay very little respect to truth. Inevitably, weaker nations are manipulated and oppressed by stronger ones, just as the weaker sections of most societies suffer at the hands of the more affluent and powerful. In the past, the simple expression of truth has usually been dismissed as unrealistic, but these last few years have proved that it is an immense force in the human mind, and, as a result, in the shaping of history.

      16. As we approach the end of the twentieth century, we find that the world has grown smaller and the world’s people have become almost one community. We are also being drawn together by the grave problems we face: overpopulation, dwindling natural resources, and an environmental crisis that threaten the very foundation of existence on this small planet we share. I believe that to meet the challenge of our times, human beings will have to develop a greater sense of universal responsibility. Each of us must learn to work not just for his or her own self, family or nation, but for the benefit of all humankind. Universal responsibility is the real key to human survival. It is the best foundation for world peace, the equitable use of natural resources, and the proper care of the environment.

      17. This urgent need for cooperation can only strengthen mankind, because it helps us recognize that the most secure foundation for the new world order is not simply broader political and economic alliances, but each individual’s genuine practice of love and compassion. These qualities are the ultimate source of human happiness, and our need for them lies at the very core of our being. The practice of compassion is not just a symptom of unrealistic idealism, but the most effective way to pursue the best interests of others as well our own. The more we – as nations or as individuals – depend upon others, the more it is in our own best interests to ensure their well-being.

      18. Despite the rapid advances made by civilization in this century, I believe that the most immediate cause of our present dilemma is our undue emphasis solely on material development. We have become so engrossed in its pursuit that, without even knowing it, we have neglected to foster the most basic human needs of love, kindness, cooperation and caring. If we do not know someone or do not feel connected to a particular individual or group, we simply overlook their needs. And yet the development of human society is based entirely on people helping each other. Once we have lost the essential humanity that is our foundation, what is the point of pursuing only material improvement?

      19. In the present circumstances, no one can afford to assume that someone else will solve our problems. Every individual has a responsibility to help guide our global family in the right direction and we must each assume that responsibility. What we have to aim at is the common cause of our society. If society as a whole is well off, every individual or association within it will naturally gain from it. They will naturally be happy. However, if society as a whole collapses, then where can we turn to fight for and demand our rights?

      20. I, for one, truly believe that individuals can make a difference in society. As a Buddhist monk, I try to develop compassion myself – not just from a religious point of view, but from a humanitarian one as well. To encourage myself in this altruistic attitude, I sometimes find it helpful to imagine myself, a single individual, on one side and on the other a huge gathering of all other human beings. Then I ask myself, ‘Whose interests are more important?’ To me it is then quite clear that, however important I may feel, I am only one, while others form the majority.

    Vellalas now travel all the way to Yalpanam in luxury berths in refurbished Yarl Devi compartments..

    It doesn’t even interrupt their comfortable sleep unlike in the past thanks to Indian Taxpayers.

    They even financed the new rail track and the steel sleepers to replace the old stock which Mr Prabakarn confiscated to build bunkers.

    The Reverend probably blessed them too before Mr Prabakran and family moved in.

    Vellalas are now totally in control of the ex captives most of whom belonged to this Reverend and the other Reverend in Mannar.

    True, these ex captives still behind the 8th ball in comparison to their Vellala mates in the North.

    It is even worse in comparison to the Vellalas in Wella Gardens and Kurunduwatta, who have now taken over the administration.

    Can the Sunni High Commissioner fix these problems?.

    If the previous HC gave authority to the Investigation to force the Diaspora to pay compensation to the ex captives, there would have been some merit in such efforts..

    Unless the Reverend is hoping that the Govt will pick the tab for compensation to the victims of crimes of the LTTE as well.

    liberating 295,873 Tamils by the Sri Lankan armed forces, who were held as a human shield by the Tamil Tigers is GENOCIDE.

    I have always thought that men and women who choose to become ministers of religion – never mind, which religion – elect to dedicate their lives to a ‘higher calling’ and are concerned with things spiritual rather than the material things that concern lay persons. And I have also always thought that ministers of religion should concentrate on truly fulfilling their roles as ministers of religion, and leave things like politics to lay persons. Ministers of religion who choose to dabble in politics betray the commitments they made when they professed to follow the religious life, and end up instead in bringing their religions into disrepute.

    The Rev Fr Emmanuel and the Bishop of Mannar, the Rt Rev Rayappu Joseph, seem to have forgotten their true roles as ministers of their Church, as shepherds and pastors to their spiritual flocks. Instead, they have become political activists. If they want to be political activists, they should leave their robes. At the moment they are abusing their positions to pursue political agendas. They are no credit to the Catholic Church in SL, and, in fact, they do the SL Catholics no good.

    I’d say to them both (as I would to any religious in the same position) give up politics or give up your robes.

      What hire calling is there than serving man in the time of need. The Rev. Bishop could have moved to Colombo when trouble broke out and enjoyed life at the Bishops Palace in Colombo. Instead he stayed with his flock, bearing the pain and suffering of the people, giving them strength in return, so did some priests and nuns even sacrificing their life. So go wash your mouth with salt before even thinking of taking shots at these people or the religion.

      The Rev. Bishop is living the Christian life not preaching it.

            You must ask. the UNP Christian Faction and the Vellalas.

            However, the Reverend looks better than your current PM by a country mile. to run the TNGTE..

            Watching the PM struggling with the Queen’s dialect to whip up the Diaspora in front of Ms Pillai’s old dig, to block the entry of the SL President to the UN, made me wonder how he got elected not once but twice by the unanimous vote of 800,000 of you guys from Oslo all the way to New Jersey via Great Britain and Scarborough.

            Poor Ananthi was not good enough to be even a Minister for the Dalits along side the erudite and , sophisticated ex Vellala SC Judge.

            The Reverend must have sharpened his oratory skills at least in recent times by conducting Sunday Mass in East London to Diaspora Catholics…

    BJP has dealt another severe blow and has conveyed the message that Modi expects nothing less than full implementaion of 13th amendment and much more and he is not bloughing.
    Mahintha has allowed Chinese Submarines to venture into Sri Lankan waters and that gives India the right to have a permanent Militaray presence.
    Mahintha is Stuck and we are FREE.

    Sinhalese need to wake-up. Sooner the better, because they can’t define what is excellent deed and deception. Killing thousands of innocent people, bribing people to get votes, violating election laws to win election, hiring thugs and criminals to enforce Rajapaksa ideology, stealing tsunami money, creating white elephants projects to get commissions are not excellent deeds. Obviously, the majority of the Sinhalese can’t define what is excellent deed and deception. I urge to read the following article “Enemies Of The President’s Promise” written by Professor Rajiva Wijesinha MP. https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/enemies-of-the-presidents-promise/

    President Mahinda Rajapaksa is giving away people’s money without a Parliament approval. This shows his nature. The president’s ruling party doesn’t contest a fair election in the country, the people in the South can’t have three meals a day, and the people in the North are under military rule. But the President is talking about the UN’s credibility. He must understand one important thing; the UN has credibility, that is why he has been given an opportunity to give a speech at the UN general assembly. However, Sri Lanka doesn’t have credibility that is why it has refused to allow the war crimes investigators. This week, President took a photo with Obama and his wife. Look at the photo, I don’t have to tell you who hasn’t evolved as better human beings.

    African slaves came a long way compare to some racist Sinhalese leaders. Those Sinhalese leaders are curse for Sinhalese, disgraceful for Sri Lankans and shame for 21st century humanity. Above all, the Rajapaksa regime is the least educated government in the history of Sri Lanka, more than 40% MPs haven’t passed 10th grade(GCE O/L), and more than 50% of MPs haven’t passed the 12th grade(GCE A/L). And this regime has killed more innocent people than any other government in Sri Lanka. Therefore, we mustn’t expect any wise or responsible action from the Rajapaksa regime. I urge India and the international community to pressure the Rajapaksa regime to do what is right and admirable for the 21st century.

    Have you seen my writings against the Sri Lankan government before May 2012? I gave them benefit of the doubt, until I have visited Sri Lanka in April 2012. Have they heard about investigative journalism? Obviously, they don’t otherwise Sri Lankan media will not support the Rajapaksas criminals. I have seen and heard the truth by travailing to most parts of Sri Lanka. I spoke to many Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims in three languages to know the truth. I have stayed with a Sinhalese family in a rural area in the South. I have seen their struggles through my own eyes. I spent my money to buy food for them to make their Sinhalese New Year enjoyable. The Rajapaksas are feeling very uncomfortable with the truth. They must stop spreading lies, the world knows them well for their lies. They killed thousands of innocent people, but still lying. People know who are the criminals and thugs, but became ministers, newspaper editors, and diplomats, because of the Rajapaksas. Their days are numbered, because they can’t fool all the people all the time.

    SLFP presidents have blundered in administering the country. They speeded up murder and genocide of Tamils with their Sinhala Buddhist extremism in our multi cultural and multi religious country.

    How dare they organise themselves to contest again having made the prices to shoot up and people to suffer.

    SLFP made 142 unqualified MP’s to be in a parliament of 225 and ruled the country by stupids.

    They must be shamed, sent home and tried for crimes against humanity.

    The Rev. Dr. Emmanuel, makes a plaintive plea to the UNHCR.

    The various governments of Sri Lanka since independence have operated on the simple and obvious truism that democratic power comes from the Sinhalese, in particular the Sinhala-Buddhists.Every ruling move from the prime-ministership of SWRD up to this day has been anchored to that truism. Every GOSL since then dealt with our Tamil brethren on the basis that they, the Tamils, (and the minorities), must be ‘kept in their place’. It was a case of we set the rules and IF they accept with heads bowed low, WE WIN. On the other hand, if they rebel and demand independence, we defeat them with our numerical military might and, WE WIN.

    Once the political will was set, May 2009 was a foregone conclusion. But nothing else has changed. The Tamil community that now remains will be expected to ‘know their place’ and THIS government will NEVER allow another uprising from any group (never mind the Tamils alone) to get traction. Groups like the BBS et al will enjoy their freedoms but, make no mistake,will be squashed if they overstep the mark.

    This Regime meanwhile will lead the UN, and its agencies like the UNHCR, in a merry dance. Brazen, and disregarding the consequences, they will play hard to get with old friends and supporters, and cosy up to their new best friends, especially the ones who bankroll some of the more dubious ‘developments’ that are taking place.

    The future looks bleak but all is not lost, which is why those like Rev. Dr. Emmanuel, and others must make their voice heard; and loudly.

    Patriot,

    Replies to your 4 Noble Truths

    Noble Truth # 1:” The Tamil people have unilaterally decided that they want independence.”

    Majority of the Sinhalese have unilaterally decided not to grant land and police powers to the provincial councils let alone a separate state.

    Noble Truth #2: “The creation of new countries is a part of global governance. However, the only available method for a country to be created is an independence referendum. The only way an independence referendum can be done against the wishes of the “Majority” population, is if that “Majority” is found to have committed genocide against the local population in the region that wants to become independent.”

    Creation of new countries according to whims and fancies of a group of people is not global governance. Creation of a Tamil country in India is possible in time if the Indian union breaks up. Then with the help of Tamil Nadu you may be able to establish a new country in the North (East Unlikely).
    The independent referendum you are talking about is unlikely to succeed due to factors like
    a)Most Tamils in the country live outside the North East
    b)Also the demography in the East is not favorable for the Tamils
    c)No government in the world is blaming the Sinhalese people or the government of Sri Lanka for genocide.

    Noble Truth #3: “The GOSL committed genocide against the Tamil people in the NE in 2009.”

    No government in the world is blaming the Sinhalese people or the government of Sri Lanka for genocide.
    Proving war crimes is a possibility and that would mean punishing some individuals. Still this has to be proven. In spite of the overwhelming evidence I think you Tamils will screw up this too

    Noble Truth #4:”Now that the Scottish independence referendum is over, the next international referendum on independence is going to take place in the NE of Sri Lanka.”

    You are another Tamil dreamer.I have always said in time the North of the country seceding and becoming a satellite state of Tamil Nadu is high. Government of Sri Lanka is fully aware of this and as a result colonization of the North with Sinhalese people is already happening at a reasonable pace.

      Sinhala speaking Demela,

      “Majority of the Sinhalese have unilaterally decided not to grant land and police powers to the provincial councils let alone a separate state.”

      No they haven’t. Even if they have it is based on their ignorance, stupidity and raging racism. Whatever powers are devolved it is going to be across the island, and people across the country will benefit from the same devolved powers. Now as usual you like to cut off your nose to spite the face. There is no way we can stop you from your own self destruction.

      ” Then with the help of Tamil Nadu you may be able to establish a new country in the North (East Unlikely).”

      There are other options.

      Hindians taking over the entire island.

      Hindians annexing North East as part of their Akhand Barat.

      Sinhalese opt to join Hindia.

      As happened 7500 years ago Sea swallowing the entire island.

      The entire Sinhala/Buddhist population committing mass suicide.

      Koodankulam power station blows up and kill entire Tamilnadu and this island population.

      Under various pretexts US chose to flatten this island.

      The Sinhala/Buddhists men are so horrible Sinhala speaking women refuse to procreate.

      There are many events that could change the history.

      The demand for certainty is one which is natural to man, but is nevertheless an intellectual vice.

      It took 17 years to jail your distant cousin Lalu Prasad Yadav whereas in Jayalalitha’s case it has taken 11 years.

      It would take much less time than the above two to put MR and his clan behind bars.

    “Tamil first and foremost, Eelamist second, and Christian third, if that. Another man born in the wrong country.”

    It is similar to Sinhala/Buddhist racist first, Sinhala/Buddhist second, Sinhala/Buddhism third, Sinhala language fourth, ……………. finally Buddhism or Buddha’s teaching has no place in this land.

    The Sinhala/Buddhists are living in the wrong country. They belonged to North and South India.

      “You are a great entertainer.”

      I am not.

      “Not bad for a jobless bugger.”

      Thanks for the observation anyway.

      I know who I am whereas you think you know who you are.
