Sri Lanka Should Be Condemned, Not Acclaimed

By Sdakat Kadri

As Sri Lanka prepares to host the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) on 15 November, its government is feeling rather pleased with itself. Since defeating the Tamil Tiger insurrectionary movement in 2009, it has been engaged in a sustained rebranding operation, helped by a team at the Bell Pottinger public relations agency, and the exercise is paying dividends. Earlier this year, Lonely Planet named the island as its top travel destination for 2013, because “the war is over and Sri Lanka’s looking up”. The Commonwealth has been similarly impressed – so much so that the CHOGM is scheduled to anoint President Mahinda Rajapaksa as the association’s chairman for the next two years.

    Sadakat,
    This Land is Budhism, you know well and any Abrahmic Religon beliver knows that Lord Buddah is Satan and he created Monsters in the world like Richard The Lion Heart in Early 10th Centry, then 18 Century, Carl Marx, Darwin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao Seto, and Helena Blawasky and the clan of Monster Belivers.

    Sri Lanka is Budhism Land has 75% of them belive this Monster Buddah, so dont expect good things happen here, all are violations…. for Budhaism All humans are Monkey Before, and all are Animals.. so they treat humasn as Anumals. so Forget of it man…

      It was so hilarious when Eastern province Muslims hide their wives inside Sinhala Buddhist army soldiers sarongs to escape from Another prophet of Islam Mr. Velupillai Prabhakaran.

      Allah is blood thirsty like both Mr. Prabha & Puppet Mohammed.

      Satan was created by the ALmighty god of Christianity, and the Almighty was so dumb and he did not know he was creating SATAN aka LUCIFER.

        BIBLE was written by dumb humans.

        Now, the Christianity is Screwed up.

        There is no ALmighty to be found any where. Every human including the devotees of Christianity are SATANS – think about thousands of Athiests and Agnostics living in the west. Think about the Naturalists, material scientists, Astro Physicists….who worked against Christianity.

        Why Scientists study Buddhist practices such as Meditation ????

      Buddhism never create any thing.My friend learn about Buddhism before you write, as your prophets parents according to some historians were Buddhist. If you are a Sri Lankan Muslim your grandmothers maybeBuddhist, but now converted to Muslim religion. Your Muslim grandfather came to Sri Lanka without women, and some of your blood may be belong to your Buddhist Grandmothers and Mothers.

    Tsunami Hora is in a good wicket or rather he is still batting because the umpires from UK, USA & India are biased.
    Rajapaksas some how made sure that there shouldnt be any neutral umpires for there matches. We spectators watch rajapaksa matches match in television and fuming, and waiting for them to lose but the series has been already fixed.

    One hopes that Mr. Kadri is equally assiduous in dissecting the egregious behaviour of Sri Lanka’s former colonial master pre 1948.

    Sadakat,
    Don’t worry the defeated Tamil terrorists along with their paid foreigners are always there to condemn Srilanka.

    Sri Lanka should hold it’s head high for having eliminated a group of terrorists who attempted to ethnically cleanse a third of the landmass for the creation of an APARTHEID regime for the 5% of the Tamils who lived there.
    Even the Tamil speaking Muslims, some 200,000, from the Jaffna peninsula and the northern Vanni were deemed unfit to live in the racially pure state they were bent on creating and were sent packing with ONLY the clothes on their backs.
    Yet laughably, these seekers of APARTHEID were demanding assistance from the South African ANC which fought and overcame that same condition.
