Sumanthiran Says NewsFirst One Of The Worst Offenders Of Misreporting: “Time Has Come To Take Them To Task”

TNA Parliamentarian M.A. Sumanthiran said that time had come to take the MTV/MBC media network, owned by controversial businessman R. Rajamahendran alias Killi Maharaja, to task.

Sumanthiran

Speaking at an event in Jaffna, Sumanthiran said, “A few days ago they used one phrase I used in a speech out of context, and falsely reported that I had stated that with the new Constitution, a separate state would be a possibility. That is completely false and directly contradictory to what I said! One of the main things I said in that speech was that we should give up the Eelam dream.”

The TNA Parliamentarian added that NewsFirst was one of the worst offenders of misreporting.

He also added, “The media is busy reporting on what various individuals say about the draft Constitution, but don’t look at what draft itself says. The media is intent on reporting deliberately false and misleading news regarding the Constitution. There are many forces in the South that are hoping to prevent a new Constitution being passed, and the media that support such forces spread such false “news”.

A few days ago they used one phrase I used in a speech out of context, and falsely reported that I had stated that with the new Constitution, a separate state would be a possibility. That is completely false, and directly contradictory to what I said! One of the main things I said in that speech was that we should give up the Eelam dream.

The whole country knows about MTV. They have been continuously engaging is this dangerous and deliberate false reporting and the time has come to take them to task, and they will be taken to task. I want to tell them that directly today.

Today’s Ceylon Today headline is also an example of false reporting. The TNA asked that the Government consult with MPs of the area before taking cabinet decisions regarding those areas, and the Government agreed to do this. This is what the Hon. Mavai Senathiraja said. The news report states that he says there is an agreement between the TNA and Government and that no cabinet decisions can be taken without consulting with the TNA! I said that the Tamil areas in the East should also be included in this mechanism of consultation, but the news item says that I said there will be a North East merger!

    Both are masters of their respective arts. At the moment Sumathithran’s excellence in his art is more dangerous to the country than Kili Maharaja’s. Ranil is in Sumathithran’s pocket.

        Anybody with a minimum of brains can see the gap between “We report, you decide” and what the Maharajahs actually broadcast. I have seen the self-serving nature of the channels since inception. Their first target was the then ETV, which was broadcasting interesting BBC stuff full-time.. The Maharajahs had it shut down on the promise that they, as BBC franchisees, would fill the gap. But it never happened.
        A couple of years ago, they went tooth- and -nail for one Muhunthan Canagey, the then TRC director, on grounds of “national security” because he refused to give them frequency rights.
        And of course they have such intellectual giants as T. Rusiripala, Faraz (who can’t keep his pants up without braces) and Dr. DJ to provide what is termed “public opinion”. Killi Maharajah is said to be related to Arjuna Mahendran. It would seem that much of the venom deployed in the so-called “bond scam” reporting is due to a family dispute.
        If one wants a case for broad-basing media ownership, one has only to look at the monstrous “Capital Maharaja Organization” (as it grandly calls itself) which grew out of plain old Rajandrams in Bankshall Street, better known for washable Parker ink than brainwashing.
        This is not to say that the other channels are unbiased. TNL is owned by Ranil’s brother, but it doesn’t go to the gutter levels that are plumbed by Sirasa.

          Maharaja Organisation is a success story.

          What a Pity Upali group failed though with family connections with then PM &President.

          If just Quink ink business has grown like this to this without any Sinhala Government support then this is a real achievement.

          Almost every big companies in this country directly or indirectly connected to Maharajas yes they are real Maharajahs.

          Tamil Maharajah make Sinhala politicians shiver, if a poor Tamil daily do like this they would have finished the editor now ..he he he modayas are helpless.

          T Rusiripala, Faraz – intellectual giants? Rusiripala cannot hold a discussion in eloquent English past three words – he presumably thinks in Sinhala first and says it in English – very pathetic command of the language – what a class to have been Chair of BoC?!! Faraz – he has no brain of his own that he has to not only mimic and imitate once CNN fame Larry King but is the plump over fed lap dog of Maharajah that he spews out what Maharajah wants told in the name of “we report you decide”.

        MTV and SIRASA if serious, should do a survey among those who are intelligent, about their NEWS and their POLITICAL programmes aired. They should specifically ask for feedback on these two ONLY, since a general evaluation might dilute the viewers’ opinion, given the soap operas and other forms of musical and other glitzy shows that abound on their airwaves.

        They will get an accurate reply if they conduct such a survey and limit it to those two aspects ONLY..

        On the NEWS front, they have lost credibility with their inaccurate and often wrong news broadcasts.

        Political programmes are no better. They are so one sided, they could be laughed at, had it not been so sad for the damage they do. Just imagine giving Dayan Jayatilaka a free run on MTV for 1/2 hour every second week, to discuss current political situation without anyone to contradict him!!

        They have had no viewers’ interest at heart whatsoever. It is so unprofessional, it isnt funny.

        Recently th MTV interviewed a prominent member of the JVP in ENGLISH. The fat man who was the interviewer, badgered and bamboozled the JVP activist (who was clearly struggling with the english language) and finally got the answer he wanted by feeding the answer into the JVP activists mouth. This was so patently obvious, there wasnt even a thread of guile about it.

        The manner in which this particular interviewer makes his own pronouncements during interviews is so unprofessional, it is amazing their producers are so very weak kneed to halt the rot.

        Whether they correct themselves or not, does not matter anymore. The damange is already done to themselves. The intelligent viewer has moved away, and wont return.

      Mr Sumanthiran,

      we the unbiased, anti-extremists, anti-racists sinhalaya articulated it criticising SIRASA, we do it even today. I think SIRASA is one sided and racial media institution.

        @LEELAGEMALLI – firstly thank you. Secondly majority of us Tamils are no different from decent folks like you among the Sinhalese. We are decent well meaning people as well. But there are racist scoundrels on both sides, who will never allow this country to stay united. Unfortunately most of the Tamil scoundrels have left the country and stirring up trouble in Lanka while their families flourish abroad. Similar scoundrels among the Sinhalese are still there and stirring up trouble as they are flourishing locally. I for one, know very well majority of the Sinhalese have given up just like well meaning Tamils in hoping this country will move forward. Too bad, good folks on both sides are sidelined by scoundrels on both sides.

          Tamil From North@
          I have lived with Tamil /muslim SRILANKENS, I have shared my meals with them. I have worked with them. I have enjoyed HOSTEL parties with them. I have not noticed that they are different to us SINHALAYAS. Honestly, most part of my getting on with them was not in Srilanka, but in Europe. I met Tamils and muslims and non-srilankens (Nepals, Bangalidhis) students for the first time at Pera. We were caught by brutal ragging excercised by most SINHALA BUDDHIST students on us (albeit I merely the same category of buddhist, calling our religion buddhagama) as freshers to UNI at that time. I believe, ragging at national Unis reflect the LANKEN CUTTURE, of our hell are draged on to be appalling states today. Not being able to tolerate the other. Overstating ownselves, just because mythos being cemented in their heads from their childhoods on.

          Unfortunately, OUR govts (now the minority govt) under an UNCONSTIUTIONAL president, whose ANY STEP taken sofar obviously ended up in vain, would never pave the way any WHOLEHEARTED steps being taken towards peace discussions to move geuniely.

          If any LEADER who is given the chance/having gotten elected by PEOPLE s votes, would not do the job properly, we should sack him IMMEDIATELY. Prez Sirisena should not be in his seat further going by his betrayals made to his VOTERs. No other leaders have behaved that rude. We in Europe highly criticise Prez Trump but even he himself has betrayed his mandate to the manner lanken incumbent president did during last 3 months.

He does not have a big heart towards the poor and their grievances. He is just an ACTOR. Poisoous snake need to be destroyed on the spot (please pass this to your community).

              Great observations from both Sinhalese and Tamil sides. Let’s hope that these words translate into harmonious living and cooperation. I’ve avoided “coexistence” which is a rather negative way of putting things.
              .
              As for me, I wish I had seen more of the world, but I’ve never been out of Asia. I’m glad that you guys have seen more. Uni – I wasn’t ragged since I was a teacher on study leave but I thoroughly disapprove of such things. However, I saw far too much communal violence, and tried to counter it.
              .
              I’ve approved CBK. Problem with Ranil is he doesn’t make way for a younger guy.

        We the real buddhists would not harm not even a fly- if we learnt it from Daham School. But our hypocrites do it being in robes and lay people. Over 90% buddhists in this country are jokers, just followers. If any political leader would start licking the bo tree, those loyalists too would do so, without questioning twice:
        :
        The buddhism (by name BUDDHAGAMA) is made in favour of them and their existence in our rotten hell where slaves and their traditions get ground through black media run by crooks.
        :
        In today ‘s context, knowing it as BLACK AND WHITE, that various CULPRITs would stand on any kind of PEACE moves – why not PARLIAMENTARIANS fail to come to a consesus on a common agreement in which each and everyone in Parliament would not be subjected to promote racism, being out of parliament. This should well be of validity to Maha Raja, who strolls every tempe premises and sings the song interpreting it with his RED ROBES WARING SKIN heads in such dens.
        :
        In Europe, you need to have things verified and signed off by anyone, as proof materials, so that the law and order could stand against them, once anyone after being sworn in, nevetheless respectlessly behave as if any high criminal would do.
        Blatant extremists would know barriers that we know from our long held CIVIL war. Not just LTTERs but we sinhalese too have BLATANT terror promoters within the community. We should collectively stand against them and crush them at this level so that OUR future generations would never go through what we went over the last 3 decades.

          @ LTTE was formed because of the Tamil massacre since 1956 before 1983 there was no LTTE but Tamils were butchered by Sinhalese systematically.

          As usual, for Kuran Buk reading people general knowledge is zero Scientist wanted to keep all his followers in the dark. and use them only for looting only Isulam describe as work.

          East Timor was created after massacring of half of the Christian population by Musulim Indonesian troops.

          Today SL Tamil issue is an international issue many countries are working on this simply they are patient and soon they will tighten the nut and your Sinhala bruders will fell at their feet.

          BTW where were your Musulim bruders when your people were butchered by your Sinhala Bruders.’?

          No more Saddham ( qualification Grade 2). Kaddafi ( qualification Grade 7) to support Musulims in other countries what a pity go and pray 8 times and talk about Jihad a comedy word anyone can use.

          All Muslims in this country are converted Tamils stop talking my language at home start talk Arab who are your bruders but treat Asian Muslims as shit.

            Cholan these fake Arab low caste immigrant Tamil Hindu converts like this GHK were openly supporting the Sinhalese establishment government and the armed forces in their genocidal Tamil dance and were co partners in this. They want everything from the island’s Tamils including their land but hate them in the name of Islam. Wahhabism and their fake Arab origin that they have concocted for themselves and deny their actual Tamil Hindu converted origin , as these lowly creatures think this makes them look good, as if people are idiots. If they love and worship Arabs so much, and hate their Tamil ancestry so much , let them leave the island and migrate to the Arabian Gulf and be slaves for their Arab masters instead of sitting in the Tamil lands in the north and east and making attempts and conniving with their Sinhalese co conspirators to steal the Tamil east for them. Arrived their a centuries ago begging for refuge from the local Tamils , stating that their Tamil Muslims , fleeing Portuguese and then Sinhalese persecution, now anti Tamil haters , killing Tamils and conniving with the Sinhalese to destroy us and steal our lands. Typical low caste converted mentality.

              Here in this cursed Sri Lanka Memons..Borah Muslims never, ever allow local Musulims inside their gate.

              Memons and Borahs never ever mix with Muslims in prayers they have their own places.

              Arabs treat Asian Muslims worse than shits knowing very well these Musulims were once Hindus then converted to Isulam for benefits.

              The biggest joke is these Asian Musulims try their level best to show Arabs that
              they are also Musulims and ready to do any barbaric acts.
              There are reports about the deaths of 100s of Indonesian Mususlims housemaids in Malaysia and now Indonesia banned maids to Malaysia.

              Dynamic Isulam.

              In Kattankudy these jokers dress like Arabs and signboards are in Arabic but go home and talk in Tamil. How is this?

              Saudi Arabia pours tons of money to teach pure Isulam and the paradise with 27 virgins to other Musulims in Asia
              Saudi Wahabies who repersent pure (????) isulam once protested when then king introduce Radio ,King Faisal was killed by his own cousin when he tried to introduce TV there.

              He He He today all Ulamas listen to Radio and watch TV also enjoy blue films on the Internet.

              Lebanese and Egyptian Musulim chicks are popular in blue films. Sure they pray 5 times and do Haram .

              While Saudis (there was no Saudi Arabia before 1935) guardian of Isuulam who pray 5 times per day , rape, torture and kill their own Mususlims maids from Asia & Africa thus this sect keep them as barbarians.

              Please do not expect civilized comments from these liers Buk allow musulims to lie as much as possible.

            Why talk about Saddam, Gaddafi and the others out of Sri Lanka? Facts hurts, but the fact is fact. Be honest, don’t you feel that Prabakaran left you guys in the lurch having invested heavily on the project and keeping all hopes?

            Hanging a “refugee” lanyard around the neck, pumping cars day and night, and compromising on dignity, you guys invested all your hard-earned money back home on an innocent people killing project called Eelam, trusting one-day their ruthless leader would declare Eelam. Instead harvesting dream went down the drain

            So you guys dignity, hard work, investment, lives, properties and some of the notable Tamil leaders & political figures lives, all went meaningless because of Prabakaran’s lack of foresight into the matters you trusted in him. But general public of SL is happy about it.

            Is that clear now, Estate Labourer?

              You guys turn your cap according to the wind and dance with Sinhalese.
              With few minister posts and housing projects, Sinhalese can buy Musulims but not Tamils.
              We are well educated and hard working we will bounce back.
              Living in Tamils areas with the support of Tamil people but spying them for Sinhala cardboard forces is dignity for you.
              Tamils destroyed any mosques?
              Played fun with Musulim girls?
              Grab your mosque lands and built temple?
              When a Tamil village near mourning the deaths of kith and kin butchered by Sinhala Cardboard forces Musulims enjoy picnics at the beach with families.
              Do you know when IPKF was here they wanted to flatten the Musulim areas in the East and it was the Tamils who begged them not to do.
              The dance of the Musulim politician in East is a big joke one day they will float with their bruders in the sea like Rohingas looking for land to accept them.
              I am compelled to remind you about Bin Laden..Saddam.Kaddaffi because once you paraded on streets with the pictures of these guys praising them, stone age Moulavi in mosque boasted these guys are the guardian of Isulam pity your God could not save these so-called leaders.

                We Muslims know that if Tamils like you had the authority that Sinhalese have, you would do much worse things to others. That is why we are historically supporting Sinhalese. And as you see the language gap between Sinhalese and Muslims are fading away, as most of us speak Tamil as well as Sinhala proficiently.

                  There are mosques in 100% Tamil villages still today.
                  Even at their peak Tigers or public never touched a Mosque and had fun with your babies.
                  After all, it was our Mukuwa chiefs offered land to built house and mosques when Musulims came to settle in the East.
                  Not an ounce of gratitude from your bruders.
                  Show me a single Musulim villages in the East identify your cult all are pure Tamil names.
                  Time to time your Sinhala bruders love to touch you while Sinhala forces look opposite side, Enjoy it.
                  About Saddam`s matter Saddam and Bodyguard are bruders your Scientist told you bruder must help and guard bruder in the case of conflict.So both are not real Musulims.

                  According to Scientists castrated animals are more strong and violent.
                  He He He
                  This is why after Modaya Government declared they have finished Tigers
                  still many countries including USA banned LTTE.
                  Why ban an non existing organisation ? Ask yourself.
                  Think twice.
                  Castration is the answer

                Cholan and kangaroo ,

                Previously, asylum was your fate. But now, it seems your ambition, but you don’t care a damn about country name getting tarnished.

                Your Education? My foot, you can’t deny that your educated Tamils and high caste Tamils were ruled like slaves by an uneducated and low-caste podiyan called Prabakaran for nearly 30 years. He even denied your franchise (right to vote) having bribed by a your enemy, MR. He even made you save your monies in his kangaroo bank in Killinochchi. Replaced school text books of kids with guns and other arms. For his eyes, any Tamil women in the region were just a pile of human-bombs, if not soldiers. Today, legitimately migrated Sri Lankans are also looked at like refugees by the westerners on day-to-day interactions. God knows what sort of dumb guys you are to still worship and call him your leader..

                Instead, you must be worshiping MR for relieving you guys from that war monger.

            Siva Sankaran Sharma,

            Don’t blame the Muslims who at least saved a few Tamil lives in 83. You must be blaming yourselves for trusting in an “uneducated” classless stubborn ‘Yal Podiyan’ called Prabakaran who screwed up everything. Did Muslims ask you to invest in a war with Sri Lankan Govt?

            Cholan says “LTTE was formed because of the Tamil massacre since 1956 before 1983″… For many people’s views, LTTE didn’t have a clear goal. It all started with achieving Eelam, later their struggle was not Eelam, their struggle was to make sure a war is always on-going in SL to retain existing asylum statuses back in West and AU, while increase more.

            Because of you silly shameless buggers like you and Cholan here, even for a legitimate business trip to the West, we have to under go so much of paper works and questions.

              Western countries are reluctant to issue visas for Musulims no one know why they are coming to infidel west.

              Go to the country of Arab Bruders without Visa chant Coran at immigration desk your bruder will immediately issue Visa arrange free hotel and cars for you.

              You are like eagle live on dead bodies have no right to talk about Tamils and their aspirations .

              He He He uneducated Tamils ???

              P studied up to grade 8 but the whole world was speechless with their style of attacks on your Sinhala cardboard army.

              I have already said Sadaam Hussain qualification is Grade 2 and Kaddafi Garde 7
              What is the qualification on your Moulavies or Immams?
              Even a Hindu Priest or Catholic priest are well educated.

              Tamils even today have a clear vision what they want OK?

              Soon this land will be ruled by Chinese who love Musulims like Russians ( In Dagistan not a single under 30s man exist today)then will you have the guts to bark against the Chinese during Friday prayers?

Low caste Tamil Hindu converts to Islam whose ancestors only migrated to the island from South India a few centuries ago. Who the hell are you to talk about Eelam and the Tamil lands in the north and east . You Wahhabi fanatic You came to our lands as refugees and now joining the Sinhalese racists and posting garbage.

          Muslims themselves in Tamil Nadu think they are Tamils.
          But here Musulims talk Tamil and follow our traditions but boast outside they are different try to identify them as Arabs.

    My immediate attention grabbed this part uttered by Sumanthiran.
    Quote: “There are many forces in the South that are hoping to prevent a new Constitution being passed, and the media that support such forces spread such false “news”. Unquote:
    Listen to me Sumanthiran.
    The entire country knows who you are, your Eelam dream and TNA’s relentless strife to get the Federal Election passed.
    Now, out of the blue, you say you want to give up Eelam dream which was Prabhakaran’s dream.
    It is no secret that Eelam dream is now coming in a different facet via a new Constitution and it is NOT fake news.
    If you are genuine that you have given up your Eelam dream, then you should give up Federal dream too, which are interconnected.
    No Sinhalese MP who lives among Sinhalese will vote in favour of the new Constitution because Sinhalese will definitely take them to task.
    With or without media’s help, Sinhalese will defeat Federal Constitution.
    The view of the majority in the country representing every sector is, there is no need for a new Constitution or any amendment to it.
    The majority in Parliament are Sinhalese. In fact, 3/4 of MPs are Sinhalese.
    I am sure none of them is ready to relocate in North and East after voting in favour of the new Constitution. I invite them to try.

      Early Man and the Rise of Civilisation in Sri Lanka: the Archaeological Evidence

      S. U. Deraniyagala
      Director-General of Archaeology, Sri Lanka

      Excerpt:
      ABSTRACT
      PREHISTORY
      The Himalayan foothills of the Indian sub-continent have yielded evidence humans having lived there around two million years ago. Although the earliest known dates for hominids in peninsular India are ca. 600,000 years before the present (BP), it is very likely that future research will indicate an age comparable to that of the Himalayan foothills, since there do not appear to have been any physical barriers to prevent humans from being present in southern India contemporaneously with their occurrence in the northern part of the sub-continent. Meanwhile, it is apparent that Sri Lanka was, more often than not, linked to southern India by a land bridge during this period. It is estimated that the sea level would have dropped sufficiently for creating such a connection on at least 17 occasions within the last 700,000 years. This phenomenon would have been caused by the rise and fall of the sea level due to cold/warm fluctuations in the global climate. The last separation from India would have occurred at about 7,000 BP.

        Poor Modayas still believe their comic book Mahavamsa.

        Today India and SL were not like this during the historical time it was a big land maas
        and Tamils who lived there since unknown period simply walked to this land easily.

        Even during British rule Maharajah of Ramanathapuram visit Kachchativu for hunting and this Island belonged to Maharajah.

        Many Sinhala Royal families had Tamil blood because of the marriages with the today South Indian land princess.

        Deva Nampiya Tissa was a Tamil but Ayotullahs twisted the history.Tissan was a common Tamil name once .

          For you information, Mahawamsa is not the only chronicle we have.
          The first was Deepawamsa, then Mahawamsa, then Chulawamsa. In addition to that we have Rajavaliya and Poojavaliya. All those chronicles were written by different people in different time periods.
          Don’t talk about things that you don’t know, liar!
          Kachchativu is an small island, the size of which is only 1.5 sq.km.
          Your Maharaja may have gone their for fishing, not hunting!!!! ha ha ha. Your Maharaja was not a Rajah. He was a Zamindar who paid a fixed revenue to the British government!
          British didn’t return many islands they took from us which were attached to India by them.
          Sinhalese Kings had many willing consorts of Indian origin whose love children were not given any right to kingship. When some Kings didn’t have legitimate heir, they have passed the throne to their nephews who had royal blood.
          I have written many times about this bogus claim of King Devanampiya Tissa. He was not Tissan.
          If DevanampiyaTISSA is Tamil, how come his 9 siblings were not Tamils?
          If TISSA is Tamil Tissan, how about other Kings like; KavanTISSA, KelaniTISSA, SaddhaTISSA, LanjaTISSA, MahakulamahaTISSA, KudaTISSA, DarubhatikaTISSA, KutakannaTISSA, KanirajanuTISSA, YasalalakaTISSA, VankanasikaTISSA, BhatikaTISSA, KanittaTISSA, VoharikaTISSA, SanghaTISSA, DettaTISSA, UpaTISSA and DatopaTISSA????
          Are you telling me all those Kings with the name Tissa were Tamils? I mean, Tissans?
          Ha ha ha, if lying is a profession, you should be a billionaire by now.

            After all, who wrote these comic books it was Buddhist Racist Ayotullahs.
            Why go far Bandaranayaks are from Madurai Nayakar families..Kandy Sinhalese are generations of Tamil speaking Manawadus in today’s South India this is why
            Kandy King sings the pact with British in Tamil.
            Look at the names of Modayas …Rajaratna(m) ..Peruma(l)…Gunaratna(m) ,Navaratna(m)..Kuruppu(Karuppan )all derived from Tamil names.
            The owner of the biggest textile mills in South India is Jayawardana( Tamil) so he is a Sinhalese? During historical times there were many military generals in the name of jayawardan.
            He He He Chompa
            Before the arrivals of British in so-called India there were over 540 states small and big ruled by Kings Ramanathapuram was one …Zamidar is another story your carrot brain cannot understand this.

            A recent excavation in Keeladi near Madurai excavated over 5000 objects dated more than 2000 years where many clay pots with name Tissan marked in Tamil found.So???

            There was no Sinhala language before the 6th century and after Independence, there were just 4 volumes of Sinhala Encyclopedia this show the quality of your language.

            What was the religion of Devanampiya Tissan before he met Mahinda who flew by A380?
            According to Tamil Buddhist ancient epic Manimekalai, it was mentioned that one Mahinda on route to this current cursed country stopped at Nagapattinam. But your Sinhala comic books say Mahinda flew to Mihintale.No limit of fooling.

            No worries after 500 years your comic book Mahavamsa will write all these Mahawali & Kotmale projects were completed by the engineering talent of Modayas (ignoring British, Swedish companies who really made this ) and people like you then believe and dance.

            Mahavamsa comic book says deported criminal Kallathoni Vijaya and his rowdy gangs married women from the Pandiyan Kingdom and increased the population. This is to cover up the Tamil influence among Sinhalese injected by stone age Buddhist Ayotullahs.

              If Mahawamsa is a comic book to you, Manimekalai should be a comic song, isn’t it?
              Why my country’s greatest chronicle is a fake while merchant Shattan’s poem book Manimekalai be true?
              For your information, Vijaya and his Indian bride didn’t have children.

              Mahawamsa is a book written in chronological order.
              Name any such book written by Tamil or any other language?
              Your pain for not having a clear history is understandable but it doesn’t give you any right to condemn other people’s well written history.
              According to the ancient Indian history which is also true as at today, Tamils are a migrant community trying find a place to call theirs as they are not welcomed in South India, where they have some history.

          Mahavamsa is genuinely the chronicle of SL history, don’t insult it, don’t be jealous of it. Your words are crueler than the 30 year long terrorism unleashed by the LTTE.

          SL & India were connected with land mass long time ago, clearly long before the British period.
          However it was possible to cross over borders very easily in the past unless there’s a war situation as the border areas were far away from administrative cities.

          Indians crossed over the border were popularly known as kallathonys so your words are a proof that Jaffna Tamils are made of kallathonys.

          Don’t make hate speech.

            Your comic book never mentioned the land connection between two countries instead distorted the history this is why a vertical excavation is very important.

            There are records that Cholas built many Viharas here because lots of Tamil Buddhists lived during that time.

            So deported criminal Vijaya who invaded a land ruled by Tamil Hindu Kuveni is also a Kallathoni.

            The comic book Mahawamsa unable to explain how come this Criminal Vijaya landed in Mannar instead of Visakapattanam….Nagapattanam…Trincomale..maybe he used advanced GPS.

            The comic book unable to explain why people came from far North adapted living style and traditions of today’s Kerala.

            Lion mate with Princess then she became pregnant? real scientific joke.

            When SL was connected with today India the land was different and people could have easily walked and settled here no need to use Thonnys got it?

            Who are the Veddahs who still practice Hindu traditions and names among them also sound Tamil?

        This abstract you are referring to, has no supporting evidence.
        Besides, my mentioning of King Maha Rawana has nothing to do with Himalayan foothills.
        When we were in Grade 10, we have learnt that a long long time ago (now we know about 4 BILLION years ago), the world was one ocean with only a few islands and no mountains at all. Later islands started to emerge due to volcanic eruptions.
        It is mainly Indian ancient history and literature and archaeological evidence and folklore in Sri Lanka that provide proof of the existence of Kingdom Lanka before Vijaya Hota’s arrival.
        Due to Indian influence, Mahawamsa had intentionally omitted the period before and after Kuweni and ancient Yakkha tribe and Lanka’s first King of Yakkha descent, King Rawana I.
        According to Indian literature, “Eama” was born 7000 years ago when “Eawana” was already ruling Lanka. He had kidnapped Sita in retaliation to Rama’s brother Lakshman injuring his sister Surpanakha’s nose.
        If India and Sri Lanka were connected by sea 7000 years ago, there shouldn’t have been any reason for Hanuma to build a path for Rama to go to Lanka looking for Sita.

          I have a copy of S. Krishnasvami Aiyangar’s South Indian contribution to Indian culture. Could you let me have the page numbers of where you found Tamil literature has references about Lanka even earlier than that of South Indian history?

          “In Chapter III, about connections with Ceylon, there is nothing mentioned about India and Lanka were connected at any time in the history, other than the monkey-made bridge during “Eavana’s” time.”

          First edition was published in 1923 and the second was published in 1942. Most geological research were published after 1945 , S U Deranigala published his finding long after Aiyangar attained Nibbana.

          You make lot of people scared, a possible member of BJP/RSS cell trying to pervert the scientific evidences.

          Stuff your Rawana, Ramayana, ……………in Mohan Bhagwat’s …..

          By the way try find a book Titled The Prehistory of Sri Lanka (813 pages) by S U Deraniyagala, Department of Archaeological Survey.

          Diwan Bahadur was a title of honor awarded during British Raj and not another person. Rajasevasakta Dewan Bahadur S. Krishnasvami Aiyangar
          is the honorary title and the name of the author.

            I took that book as an example as it was a Research Paper. The second edition was published in 1942 not 1943. Read the second edition. In the Chapter III about connections between Sri Lanka and India which they say always hostilitic (their word, I don’t think there is such a word) there is no reference whatsoever about India and Sri Lanka were connected by land long time ago. If there was even a slightest indication, they would have mentioned it.
            “Tamil literature has references about Lanka even earlier than that of South Indian history” part I got from the book.

              When the book was written there were not much geological research on that were carried out about Indo Sri Lanka connection.

              Excerpts:
              Over the past 20,000 years or so, sea level has climbed some 400 feet (120 meters). As the climate warmed as part of a natural cycle, ice melted and glaciers retreated until ice sheets remained only at the poles and at the peaks of mountains. Early on, the sea rose rapidly, sometimes at rates greater than 10 feet (3 meters) per century, and then continued to grow in spurts of rapid sea level rise until about 7,000 years ago. Then, the climate stabilized and sea level rise slowed, holding largely steady for most of the last 2,000 years, based on records from corals and sediment cores. Now, however, sea level is on the rise again, rising faster now than it has in the past 6,000 years. The oldest tide gauges and coastal sediment preserved beneath swamps and marshes show that sea level began to rise around 1850, which is right around the time people started burning coal to propel steam engine trains, and it hasn’t stopped since. The climate likely started warming as a part of a natural cycle, but the accelerated warming in the last two hundred years or so is due to a rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide. The resulting rise in sea level is likely twice what we would have seen without the increase in greenhouse gasses due to human activities. https://ocean.si.edu/through-time/ancient-seas/sea-level-rise

                Let us get back to the topic.
                Sea level rising and receding is a common phenomenon which had started 4 billion years ago.
                Many islands have emerged due to volcanic eruptions.
                For an example, Kachchativu is one such island emerged in 14th Century.
                If there was a connection between India and Sri Lanka by land, it could have been poked out like Kachchativu. As we all know, there is not even a slightest possibility for such a connection by land.
                On the other hand, if there had been a connection by land, ancient South Indian rulers who were land as well as ocean savvy, would have taken over Lanka easily. Sri Lanka’s biggest saviour for sovereignty and independence is the sea around the country. According to the history, our Kings had to chase sea pirates constantly.

        According to a Research by Rajasevasakta Dewan Bahadur and S. Krishnasvami Aiyangar of Calcutta University about South Indian contribution to Indian culture, Tamil literature has references about Lanka even earlier than that of South Indian history. In Chapter III, about connections with Ceylon, there is nothing mentioned about India and Lanka were connected at any time in the history, other than the monkey-made bridge during “Eavana’s” time.
        .
        The Silappadhikaram contains references to King Gajabahu-I invading Chola country ‘through sea by way of splitting it in twain.’
        According to ancient chronicles/folklore, when King Gajabahu walked in the city, he had heard a woman crying. When she was brought to the palace the following morning to inquire about the reason, she had told the King that Cholas have taken 12,000 Sinhalese prisoners including her sons. Then King had decided to send an army to Chola country. When he went to Yapa Patuna, he had changed his mind and decided to go without the army, only accompanied by his Giant Bodyguard Neela who had struck the sea with his Yagadaawa (iron mace) and made water moved to sides for the King to walk. King Gajabahu had gone to Chola city and seated in Chola King’s throne while Neela destroyed the city. When the news went around, the Chola King had thought King Gajaba had come with an army and when he later found out that he had come with only one man and destroyed Chola city, Chola King had agreed to release 12,000 Sinhalese prisoners who were tasked to build irrigation tanks in Kaveripattinam, the Capital of Chola country. On his way back, King Gajabahu had taken 12,000 of Chola prisoners in retaliation, Goddess Pattini’s golden anklet, Lord Buddha’s begging bowl and other relics stolen by Chola.

          Silapathikaaram talks about the invitation to GajaBahu by Sera Tamil King who ruled today’s Kerala land to participate in the inauguration of Kannaki temple there.

          As usual, your Mahavamsa twisted the story for your pleasure enjoy it.

          Water moved away to enable the king to walk across Palk straits another humbug like Lion mate Princess and made her pregnant.

          It was Gaja Bahu brought Kanaki (Paththini) worship among Sinhalese.

            I didn’t refer to Mahawamsa for King Gajahabu I’s invasion of Chola country.
            It is “Rajavaliya” which was referred to, by Calcutta university Researchers (mentioned in my other comments.)
            It is no secret that giants worked for ancient Sinhalese Kings and Gajabahu’s Neela is not the only one.
            If a giant cannot move the water with a gigantic iron mace, then how could a small monkey put stones together to make a bridge across the sea and isn’t it the reason India has Hanuman Temples at every corner admiring his strength?
            Your knowledge about Sri Lanka’s and India’s history is zero.

    We can merge North to North Central to make Sinhala & Tamil people to co-exist.

    It’s very good to merge provinces & reduce them to 4 @ 1st. Later we can merge all to make 1 & totally abolish PCs.

      North and east should be merged because they are Tamil provinces. The current ethnic balance is the result of settling Sinhalese from outside by successive governments and murder and ethnic cleansing of Tamils by Sinhalese and Muslims. The correct ethnic balance should be as it was before these racist actions took place. How can Sinhalese who were 5% and Muslims who were 35% can deny Tamils their right. If merging north and east is racist, then merging Jaffna Kingdom with rest of Sri Lanka is worse racism. Correct injustice done to Tamils if you are honest, following the principle in Bosnia where all ethnically cleansed areas were restored to Muslims. Sinhalese and Muslims can only oppose their areas in the east not to be merged with north, but if they oppose Tamil areas merging, then they are the racists and not Tamils. For that Sinhalese and Muslims who oppose it must prove that they were in those areas before Tamils occupied them. With history in black and white that Muslims went to east as refugees 400 years ago, how can they claim land over the heads of Tamils. There is archaeological evidence of 2000 year old stone inscriptions in Tamil unearthed in Mahiladitivu and Vaharai in Batticaloa and Weber Stadium in Trincomalee to prove of Tamil presence while not a single stone inscription in Sinhala of that antiquity has been found. If you deny north east merger then the justifiable thing is to demerge Jaffna kingdom from the rest.

        Dr. Gnana Sankaralingam:

        As usual, you are talking BS and racism here. When you have clear majority of Muslims living in the East at present, while if you combine Muslims and Sinhalese that makes up even bigger majority in the region – it SHOULD BE decided by the majority, NOT by archaeological evidence of 2000 years old.

        There is nothing called Jaffna Kingdom in present day. We just have Jaffna, a part of Northern Province!!!

          you can not claim majority by colonizing Sinhalese in the East.
          There was no Ampara in the shell company map distributed during the 60s.
          There were no Musulims in north and East before the arrival of Portuguese.
          So-called Kandyan Sinhalese were actually Tamil Speaking Telungu Manawadus who colonized Kandy area this is why they claim they are superior.
          Do you know the first work of so-called Governer in the East?
          He has requested the state land details in the East to colonize more Sinhalese & Musulims .

          This county is sitting on a time bomb.

          There is no room for demographic manipulation in the current world. Claiming land by deliberate alteration of demographic pattern either by settling large amount of one ethnic group as what is happening in Palestine or by ethnic cleansing of an ethnic group as what happened in Bosnia are not acceptable. Sinhala and Muslim denial of land to the Tamils after indulging in these exercise is rank racism. Claiming ones right by providing scientific proof is not racism but denying truth to abrogate land of someone else is racism. If you settle Tamils who have been driven out from eastern province and are living in both Northern province and in India, back in their original places, Tamils will regain their majority in eastern province. Sri Lanka government both previous and present are not taking any action to resettle these people because the very purpose of deliberately driving Tamils out of east according to their agenda will be lost. As in Bosnia an international peace keeping force must take charge to solve this problem in a fair manner to correct this injustice done to Tamils.

        There aren’t provinces as Tamil provinces, Sinhala provinces or Muslim provinces in SL.
        It’s geographical reasons that has made provinces.

        If there’s an interest to merger provinces to reduce the number it’s a welcome idea but should happen on geographical basis.

        Please get rid of your extreme racist thought.

        The most possible merger for North is with North-Central, that’ll pave the way for Tamil & Sinhala people to co-exist.

        If interested add North-West province as well.

        East, Uva & Central merger for another province & South, West & sabaragamuwa for another one.

        Sri Lanka with only 3 provinces.

      Tamils in overseas bring investments and make this area like another Singapore.
      Also, many Sinhalese will get jobs.

    All the main stream media – especially Sirasa, Dreams, Hiru, Ceylon Today, Island, DailyMirror, Mawbima etc are real stinking cesspits. All of them failed in their duty by the people and the nation. They are utterly biased, and doing the bidding of their owners. Now a days most of the people have stop seeing them. The advertisers should take note of this, their money is being wasted for the real consumers are not any more patronising them. The civil society too should take the message to the people and expose these third rate news outlets. Also the civil society should urge the advertisers to boycott them, and hit them where it’s hurt them most – their revenue, to bring them to their senses. Instead earning this way, the owners and their journalists should do prostitution to feed their families.

    By TNA’s political-outfit having that leading membered of Abraham Sumanthran of MP is a key player of which agitator, propagandist and organizer working on behalf leading persons that Tamil Eealm by which advocated separatist for Tamil chauvinist an ideologists .
    In fact Guy of A. Sumatarian is most unqualified person to speak of “Constitutional democracy” of Parliament of SL?
    Why is that TNA’s of Abram S…. has been that realized the UNP leader is a puppet of Westerns.
    Therefor RW is ready to sell any thing even the “Sovereignty” of nation to foreign -power.

    By the way , its does matter even suppressed right vote by RW of UNP to remain in power at all times.
    Well to do politics of TNA key figured of Abaram S…. that read politics of UNP line of leadership.
    While self-politics of UNP also that belongs to anti -Establishment base by UNP foundation since 2015 January 8th.
    Indeed Abraham Sumanthran of TNA is working for anti- establishment politics by very inceptions. The TNA and LTTE having common platform that to achieved by dream of Tamil Eealm.
    Therefor current three leading political parties, classes and elements having common grounds of that ongoing grand coalition accepts by UNP. Abram Sumanthrain man who become chief dictator of current National Democtcai alliance declared by Ranil Wicks
    Politically that TNA was successes of TULF,FP and LTTE mission of separate rough state for the Tamil speaking People of world. TNA and LTTE has selected that north and east of Lanka in better homeland for Tamil speaking in World.

    TNA and LTTE are anti-establishment political outfit. One used methods Parliament for covered operation for that reflected by TNA voice inside of the Parliament .

    Kenya IS a fat developing African Country. They did not want Western CRap. Now, they got explosions by unknown people. They would first accuse Oposition, then some unknown gorups such as LTTE which later found to be a lackey of the west. Latina america, Eastern Europe, Africa have some of those countries.I think Cogo,Sambia are two others. Bangla Deah, I thinl will get it if India doe snot involve. They tried India too. Malaysia, thailand, Myanmar andSri lanka are other countries in Asia.

    Sumanthiran and TNA bunch of jokers trying to deceive and take the Tamil masses in the path of destruction once again.

    Yes, as one of the comments suggested in this discussion, Sumanthiran and TNA are totally more dangerous to Tamil masses as same as LTTE was or more than that by talking about whimsical and fanciful matters and no he tries to deceive by the word Orumiththanadu.

      “Sumanthiran and TNA bunch of jokers trying to deceive and take the Tamil masses in the path of destruction once again.”

      Does his path harsher than the ones Banda, Weeping Widow, Mahinda, ……………. had been treading ?

      “Sumanthiran and TNA are totally more dangerous to Tamil masses as same as LTTE”

      Is it so, howso?
      Even if they are it is Hindian’s problem and not yours.

      “more than that by talking about whimsical and fanciful matters and no he tries to deceive by the word Orumiththanadu.”

      I ask you again will you explain to us what does Orumiththanadu mean in Tamil, Sinhala, English or in Esperando and why it is whimsical and fanciful?
      Is that word whimsical and fanciful at the same time or different times?
      By the way could you tell us the meaning of both words in this context.

      I thought Orumiththanadu is ‘supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’.

    Gota threatened Sirasa point blank with video evidence and went live on a blistering attack on the entire Maharaja group.
    That was in 2009.
    From 2010 onwards things changed Sirasa invited gota as chief guest for vesak opening celebrations.
    Both bastards no shame.

    This subject is in regard to misreporting/twisting/massaging news by Maharajah group of newspapers/tv. Comments above have deviated from the subject matter.

    Maharajah group is virulently anti- UNP and anti- Ranil Wickremesinghe and therefore anti-TNA is as well. The way to punish Maharajah group is to boycott the media run by them. Maharajah might have tons of money, but that does not mean he should not be hauled over in a court of law for distorting/doctoring/misreports news.

    Sumanthiran should go ahead and file action for deformation.

    A friendly advice to Mr. Sumanthiran is that Tamils in N/E are expecting you to lead them in time to come and you being a PC, Bilingual (Sinhala & Tamil) and with your knowledge in politics and constitution and being an able speaker in all three languages and young, you could do well as a leader, well liked by both sides of the aisle due to your pleasant ways of handling men and things and the Tamils request you to keep away from the Media attacks.A good example is Donald Trump, Prez.of USA,who clashed with the major media Net work calling them “Fake News Media”
    and facing back lash and could lose his presidency in the next Prez. elections, as
    every statement, whether right or wrong, of his is challenged by the media in the US, so the media could ruin your career if you go direct at them, instead you could use Parliament or the courts to settle your grievances. Killi Mahendran does not attend to day to day affairs in MTV as,I presume, he is in Australia and management is in the hands of the Sinhala people. In some ways you should follow TNA leader Sampanthan Aiya’s approach to solutions but not always.
    Things have changed now and Tamils walk freely in any part of country at any time and Sinhala people are now prepared to accommodate Tamils as a Sri lankan major community and accept that they should be treated better and the majority of the legislators, specially from JVP too now fall in line with the thinking of the people,
    hence this is the ideal time for you to keep your popularity rising and not get diminished by the media.
