Tangalle Rape Victim Has Spoken For The First Time

A student has spoken for the first time of her ordeal at a Sri Lankan resort and tells David James Smith she will fight on for justice

Victoria Tkacheva was attacked at a hotel party on Christmas Eve 2011

A woman raped at a hotel in Sri Lanka has spoken for the first time of the attack in which she was badly beaten and her British boyfriend was killed.

Victoria Tkacheva, 24, a Russian languages graduate, fears that the men responsible for her rape and the murder of Khuram Shaikh, a 32-year-old Red Cross worker from Rochdale, will not be brought to justice.

One of the eight suspects who were arrested but later released is a local politician whose family have close ties to the Sri Lankan president.

There is currently no prospect of a trial, but Tkacheva insists she will not rest until justice is done. “I know if Khuram was in my place he would go on to the end,” she said. “That’s what I must do too.”

The couple had met in 2009 in North Korea where he was working as a prosthetics expert for the Red Cross, fitting artificial limbs to adults and children. Tkacheva was in Pyongyang, the capital, to study the Korean language. The relationship continued when Shaikh was posted to Gaza.

They were enjoying a holiday in December 2011 at the Nature Resort in Tangalle, 100 miles south of the Sri Lankan capital Colombo, when a group of men arrived at a hotel party on Christmas Eve.

After a minor tiff with Shaikh during the party, Tkacheva was sitting alone on the beach at midnight to cool down when she was approached by a man and asked whether anything was wrong.

She became anxious and ran back towards the hotel but was set upon by a number of men. She does not know how many.

“I couldn’t even see them. They started beating me. I fell to the ground — I was covering my head with my arms so I couldn’t see anybody,” she said. “It was next to the pool. It was so sudden, they were kicking and punching.”

Her assailants pushed her into the swimming pool. “I was trying to escape from the pool but they were not letting me.”

Tkacheva, who had suffered a fractured skull, eventually managed to get away.

“I got out from another side of the pool and in a few steps I found Khuram lying on the ground. I ran to him and started to call his name but he wasn’t responding.

“I tried to make him conscious, trying mouth-to- mouth, but there was nothing I could do to make him conscious,” she said.

Tkacheva saw cuts on Shaikh’s face but did not notice the stab or bullet wounds that killed him. “When I couldn’t bring him round I screamed very loud from helplessness and then I think I lost consciousness because I don’t remember anything else.”

It appears that at this point she was raped. Her next memory is waking up in hospital wearing a T-shirt that she did not recognise and finding that her dress was blood-splattered and her underwear had gone. Her face was badly swollen and her body was covered in bruises.

Witnesses said Tkacheva had been found naked and unconscious in a room at the hotel on Christmas morning. She had been raped or sexually assaulted and had suffered vaginal injuries, according to a Sri Lankan police report.

Tkacheva does not recall when or where she was found. “You try not to think that could have happened but it’s disgusting because they killed Khuram and sexually assaulted me,” she said.

To the best of Tkacheva’s knowledge, her missing underwear has never been found and her dress was thrown away. Both could have provided police with DNA evidence.

The eight suspects were identified through witness accounts. They include Sampath Chandra Pushpa Vidanapathirana, the head of the local council in Tangalle, one of the largest towns in Sri Lanka’s southern province. His family have links to President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

While there is no suggestion that Rajapaksa or members of Vidanapathirana’s family have intervened in the case, the relatives of Tkacheva and Shaikh believe there has been a lack of urgency during the investigation. All the suspects were released on bail without charge last November.

Tkacheva, who has waived her anonymity as a rape victim, is ready to give evidence at any trial. “I was devastated when the men were freed on bail,” she said.

Last month the Sri Lankan government said it was awaiting a report on DNA evidence and had made every effort to find those involved.

    I am ashamed of my Sri Lankan nationality.

    Where are the cowardly criminals who committed this horrendous crime?

    Corrupt ruling family seems to be colluding again to cover up this unspeakable crime as well. How do these people sleep at night?

    How can people responsible for this kind of criminality get out on bail?

    If Brits sent MI6 agents to grab these criminals and violated our national borders. I would make an exception. And swallow my national pride.

    How can you be proud of a system that utterly fails to protect the innocent. In this manner. The whole freaking time!

        yes, during the Beliatte by- election time he was in a crowd that killed a person. As witnesses gave conflicting reports, nobody was charged with this murder. basically the voters have elected a murderer as their President & are now suffering.

      Ben, this is just one among the many incidents that this kind of investigations ended up the same way. We cant accuse only the state of being biased. If lanken lawful authorities should be fair enough to see the injustice properly. I think if the law authorities are right, even president cant influence on this kind of murder cases easily. So as with the case of Barath murder and killing of MP at Waragoda, Kelaniya and many other cases, where close ones to president seem to get no due punishements.

        I dont think that SRILANKEN standards in terms of crime investigations fell to applling levels as seen today – no any previous times in the past.

        We had a civil war, but even during the war was its climax, previous president managed high profile murder inverstigations to an acceptable manner, but the current situaiton is the worst ever I heard in my entire 40years.

        You are wrong Samson. MR can and have influenced the legal system. He released a death-row criminal because she was a wife of a politician. There is no Law ad Order in our country. If you and I could have had that comfort, we would be making these statements in our own names and giving our correct mailing addresses, wouldn’t we? Only those who speak for the murderous family are not worried about disclosing their identities.

          May the particular MURDER OF BRITISH NATIONAL RELATED POOR trial investigations be eye opener to IC and put all pressures on SRILANKEN regime for them to work on lanken laws free and fair manner. That is the foundation for the future of the country. The masses rally round to MR and clans may set free considering their close contacts with them – becasue the recent most biased investigations made public aware there was no single case among the perpetrators proved to have close contacts with MR was to be accepted as a fair verdict.

            They the authorities under MR regime are trying to hide it repeating there are alike case occurences on the US or EU countries, and nobody is trying to critcise them, what an argument ? Seeing it the course of the investigation – as the minister of defence, the president himself should answer the questions raised by British couner parts. I have the feeling there will be no CHOGUM on lanken soil as planned by them.
            This maginitude of lack of the interest in high crimes have never been seen in the lanken history – even during the war at its climax- there were crimes against tourists, but the manner the authorties handled them were far from MR´s regime.

      “I am ashamed of my Sri Lankan nationality”

      Would you now apologise to this woman for the crime you didn’t commit, but committed by your fellow Sri Lankan?

      There are 20 million reasons as to why you should be ashamed of your Sri Lankan nationality.

      A North Indian Bihari man rapes a 5 year old girl in New Delhi. The police would not register a case against the rapist. Police commissioner beats up a protester. In South Sri Lanka a gang rapes a tourist and kills her boy friend. Initially police refuses to arrest the gang.

      According to Sri Lankan High Commissioner to Delhi the Sinhalese are the descendants of North Indians. Sinhalese ancestors were believe to have come from Bihar.

      I am not saying anything.

            Could you site any studies to back your claim.

            I still believe you cannot beat the Lankan’s per capita rapes.

            I don’t have any figures but I believe so.

            stupid Ben, Tamilnadu is the lowest in rape, the last time i remembered, when 3 people raped minor in coimbatore, same day police encountered them! And Tamil nadu is the least in indices of rape and best safest place to live as chosen in all india survey. And when it comes to indices of India, please re-read NV posts for which i posted smiley. There is a big truth hidden in it, connectivity to your historical place.

              See how safe Tamil Nadu is, especially for little boys and girls:

              ..a Chennai NGO dedicated to preventing child sexual abuse, revealed a number of alarming statistics: 42% of the 2211 children surveyed had been sexually abused.. 48% of boys reported abuse as opposed to 39% of girls. Virtually all cases involved family members or close acquaintances..

              You don’t live in Tamil Nadu, do you? See the report published in the Indian Express of Dec 30, 2012 below. This is a typical example of reports appearing in Indian media daily about rapes in Tamil Nadu. What is is it with the men in Tamil Nadu? Are they such sex-starved, sex-crazed, horny brutes?

              “Two rape cases a day in TN”

              Author: U Tejonmayam

              “State recorded 528 rape cases till September this year, 9 per cent jump from last year.

              Two women on an average were raped in Tamil Nadu each day this year, if the data available with the police is any indication. Police records show that 528 cases of rape were reported in the State till September this year, which works out to 59 per month. Last year, the figure stood at 677. In other words, 56 cases per month.

              If you compare the figure till September this year with the corresponding one last year, you will notice a sharp rise of nine per cent in 2012. Last year, there were 484 cases of rape till September. This year, North Zone that included Kancheepuram, Tiruvallur, Villupuram, Cuddalore, Vellore and Thiruvannamalai recorded the highest of 146 cases followed by South Zone with 136.

              According to police, the percentage of minors being victims of rape was higher compared to the 18-plus age group. “All cases of sexual harassment involving minors are booked under the section,” a police official said recalling the recent rape and murder of a 12-year-old girl near Thoothukudi.

              Police said that most of the predators this year were known persons – either relatives or neighbours.

              “The TN police is taking prompt action in rape cases. We are compiling statistics for the present year now,” a senior police official said.

              Statistics show that over 750 cases were pending investigation till September this year, of which about 14 cases had been pending for anywhere between four and 10 years.

              This could be due to various reasons like awaiting lab test and other reports, alteration of sections if the victim had died or if the accused was absconding, though the police said that chargesheet could be filed even if the offender had not been caught. “In most cases the victim does not want to pursue the case,” a police official said.

              Cops cite many reasons for over 1,700 cases pending trial, 30 of which were above 10 years and 150 for six to 10 years.

              They said in most part, the cases drag on due to pending warrant against the offender and sometimes due to witness turning hostile.

              At times, the victim does not want to pursue the case due to fear or frustration. Sometimes, the victims are wary of appearing before the court face to face with the offender, the officials said.

              Finally, a look at the conviction rate: this year, only three cases had reached the stage of conviction while 26 others resulted in acquittal. As a disclaimer, the officials pointed out that there were instances of false complaints and charges that needed to be taken into consideration.”

              Manisekaran,

              Capital of your nation Delhi is the rape capital of the world. Fact. Sorry buddy.

              Right now, A 5-year-old girl is in stable condition. After being raped and tortured by a man who held her in a locked room in India’s capital for two days. Outrage is growing against Indian Police. Apparently Police had done nothing to prevent the crime. Nor to investigate. Because parents were poor migrant workers in Delhi.

              Remember the 23 year old female medical student who was gang raped and thrown out of a bus in Delhi recently?

              A female Swiss tourist was gang raped in central India last month. Her husband was badly beaten.

              British tourist broke her leg last month as she jumped out of the window of Indian hotel room to escape a manager who ‘tried to rape her’.

              Tourist visits t India are down 25% following fatal rapes all over India.

              This situation reflects in Chennai and Tamil Nadu too. You better swallow your swollen Indian national pride too.

              Start working on India and Tamil Nadu. Before posting unsolicited advise to Sri Lanka.

              Recently,27 citizens held in custody of the state were shot dead at Welikada Prison – 16 on the evening of the ‘riots’by the STF,and 11 the next day before dawn by the police.Some were in handcuffs.
              So far,no report by an inquirer appointed.

              @ Ben, I had not invited this topic, and i neither advised how SL should contain rape cases; It is you who out of fear pulling every time TN in discussion when we talk about srilanka. Second you talk always about TN and then show records of India and delhi where your nomadic ancestral does all crime, in both cases you mentioned, 5 year girl and medical student incidents involved people from Bihar whose your karaiawasam declared that your ancestor.

              The below idiot siva sankar pasted a link that was surveyed in 2006 and that report says the possibity of risk without any basis on scientific evidence or real evidence.

              Another stupid, called Vanadeva gives a report from TN police. And he does not know that in India even a women can file rape case if his lover denied to marry her. And on analsysis it was found that refusal to marry was filed as rape cases in 90 %. So vanadeva I know i live in TN and what i say. Atleast police registers the cases here and do encounter to kill real rapists, especailly cases involving children. Can you also take the encouter cases of TN against rowdies and see..

              My objective here is not to argue with you fools about TN economy, litercay or anyother social probelm, which we know to resolve, and my objective is to understand the problem of tamil brothers in SL and help in possible ways.

              Oh yes, a survey of 2,000+ children reveals that nearly half of them have been sexually abused, and this is apparently “the possibity of risk without any basis on scientific evidence or real evidence” (lolwut?). Maybe they should have taken a leaf from the LTTE diaspora playbook and pulled some random numbers out of their asses instead, because that always seems to go down better with your ilk :)

              You’re right about one thing thought, this survey is a bit old now – given the trends mentioned elsewhere the numbers are likely to be much, much higher today.

          I do not mince words.

          Annihilation of the LTTE is very welcome. It was by all means a just war. I strongly believe Sri Lanka had absolutely no choice. But, take VP and the terror outfit out of the equation.

          I do not know about you. I was not willing to have VP’s Ealam BS affecting my life anymore. In my own country for another 30 years. It was either do or die.

          Now, am I pleased about the human sufferinng that took place. Certainly not.

          If our Fores committed crimes Sri Lanka must bring those to Justice. Even though there is no precedent in world history for that. No Brit was punished for carpet bombing Dresden, Germany. Yet, We can set an example.

          We must also go after those who nurtured the blood thirsty LTTE for 30 years from other countries. Thus making the blood bath on Sri Lankan soil possible. The hardcore LTTE Die-Ass-Pora has turned into a die hard HR fighting force now. Sri Lanka must blos their cover.

          Point is why don’t people throw rotten eggs and tomatoes and spray paint the Rajapassa morons ugly faces that are displayed all over the country?
          The young people should spray paint the Rajapssa posters with graffiti and cover their ugly faces
          Lets start a campaign to get rid of politicians propaganda that pollutes the environment. Particularly the Rajapassa pictures in public places all need to be defaced and discarded.

            As I see it every news in the very recent past, now the times are numbered. Alone the fact that his involvement to accelerate the improper crime investigations like the case BRITISH tourist murder case can have a big impact on his poltics. The idiot cant sense it, but entire world is criticising that now. I know this me being in Europe, how many are against lanken regime today. It is not only the civilian killings in the war end but also in the aftermath since then Rajapakshes have been dishonest to their hearts but continuing with their pupular rhetorics to brutally deceive the rural villagers: Latter are teh vulnerable target as vote base to stay further in power for leaders like Rajapakshes.

            Lester, then why are you worried. Keep shut your mouth. Recently, in Saudi they started to give preference to muslim house maids. your buddhist sisters went there and started to taste Arab, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Philippine, Korean,, Chinese and western male varieties. This is what they are doing in Hong Kong, Singapore, Cypress and other middle eastern countries.

Do not try to mislead readers by giving fake information like your leader. Whenever we see something here about your Genocide leader you try to divert the attention of the readers, just like your leader is doing now. We are talking here about a Murder and a rape of tourist in your great leaders area by one of your leader’s close associates.

              It is shame to send women and girls as house maids and live on their foreign remittance. Shame, Your leader and his family is buying posh cars, motor bikes and enjoying jolly full life with these poor maids money. Last week special Cabinet Paper was approved hurriedly to get cleared, from the colombo harbor Motor, Bikes with capacity over 1000cc for the use of Hambantota prince! Poor citizen here are suffering with high cost of living, murder, rape, casinos, brothel houses….. It is a sin to send to send girls and women as house maids. If any muslim person or a country is doing this they are doing against their religion!

              I don’t need the lie. It is a fact that there are more Muslim housemaids in Saudi Arabia, than there are Sri Lankan ones.

              There are about 1.2 million Indonesian migrant workers in Saudi Arabia, most working as maids, who are a valuable source of foreign exchange reserves and help reduce unemployment in South East Asia’s top economy.

          This ever happy gas ge…ba like to take photo ops with world leaders and knowing this they now avoid him.

          You saw what the Last Indian delegation told about not going to Araliya Gaha. They did not want to shake hands with this crook, thief Tsunami robber to publish their photos in papers they said.

          I truly see the level of education and mental vcapacity in his face and the way he walks and talks.

          Truly an uneducated Gas Ge…ba trying to force himself to get world attention by importing Lamborginis, Rolls Royce and 1000 CC motor bikes while getting down 3rd world leaders.

          He only deserves to go in Bullock Cart, wearing national dress Amude, while chewing Bulath Hape.

            @ Jayantha,

            I am not a Rajapakse supporter, but at least he is keeping things “going.” Thanks to the global recession, very few countries are making economic progress these days, e.g. economic growth is minimal. Even if the UNP came to power right now, there is limited potential for economic growth. Incentives for FDI are simply not there. The nature of the export market has changed over the last decade; tea and garments are not as profitable as they used to be, thanks to increased competition and lower aggregate demand.

            As I said, Rajapakse has kept things under control. If inflation was as bad as people claim, you would see riots. So far, no riots. Neither is there any major anarchist movement, such as we see in Syria, Libya, etc.

            Maybe Rajapakse is corrupt to a certain extent, I do not deny that. But if you dig deep enough, you will see that virtually every politician everywhere is corrupt. In the USA, for example, oil companies and other big corporations donate millions to presidential campaigns. In return, environmental regulations are relaxed, and corporate taxes are reduced. When the USA invaded Iraq, oil contracts were given first and foremost to Halliburton, a company of which Dick Cheney was the CEO! Do you know why the West is after Syria and Iran right now? Oil, man, oil. Saudi Arabia has joined the ballgame; because of the sanctions on Syria and Iran, the demand for Saudi oil is high. More demand means more revenue.

            At least Rajapakse corruption is confined to S. Lanka; it does not have global ramifications.

              You say…..I am not a Rajapakse supporter, but at least he is keeping things “going.” Thanks to the global recession, very few countries are making economic progress these days, e.g. economic growth is minimal……

              Could you show me the real figurs to show that Rajapakses keep things “going”….which way….

              I have showed many times with examples that the economic development minister is telling total lies. Here’s few of them…

              1)He said One million tourists came in 2012. I proved with examples that it was a lie. To hit 1 million tourists there should be 60 plane loads of tourists should land every day 365 days per year. It never happened. Even 500,000 is questionalble.Please read the following web.
              sundaytimes.lk/130217/business-times/mystery-as-sri-lankas-tourist-arrivals-rise-amidst-falling-occupancy-levels-32801.html

              Also how come Sri Lankan and Mihin Air loose 200 Billion Rupees in 2012 if Sri Lanka got 1 million tourists. Which way those tourists came…… Do your own research.

              2)70% (seventy percent) of children are malnutrition in Sri Lanka, while 60% of Adult population is undernourished….. where as in USA 45% of children and 35% adult population is overweight. 20% are obese.

              3)USA cost of living index is average 7% whereas in Sri Lanka it is 22% (don’t believe CB statistics) do your own research.

              PLEASE SEE THE FOLLOWING SOCIAL SERVICES GIVEN FREE IN USA.

              Starting from Free education upto high school, free healthcare for needy,free school breakfast and lunch for low income school children and discounted rates others, scholarships for poor for university education, food stamps and food bank for low income people, free shelter for homeless, giving food stamps to single parent families and their children, eldery and disabled people, unemployment benefits to unemployed youth and citizens,eldery care, social secutity, free health and retirement homes for the eldery and disabled, giving aid and subsidy to third world countries, disaster management and state funds allocated when people face disasters, special discounts for senior citizens and many more. Where do Sri Lanka stand.

              4)Please go and see what many house holds eat for Breakfast, lunch and dinner. See how 50% of people live in cadjan houses similar to Rizana Nafiq’s parents live.

              5)Even a begger in USA has better comforts more than the middle class citizen in Sri Lanka. Beggers over there drink Beer, eat hotdogs,hamburgers, pizza and Buffet dinners almost every day, where here they are super luxury.

              6)Even the Prison food and prisoners life styles with AC rooms, 24 hour TV, library, gim, telephone, games, schoolong, studies, etc in USA is super luxury living to Sri Lanka’s absolute dungeons.

              7)In USA there’s no Govt. sponsored white van abductions, police restricting only opposition candidates rallies, shooting at protestors, govt. ministers raping innocent people, breaking shops and printing presses, media personnel been murdered….etc.. those are not to be seen there.

              8)Sri Lanka has a supressed and oppressed economy, while ruling elete having the best lives simi8lar to North Korea.

              9)In USA it’s the same Cereal and food their President and Congress eat that their Poor people eat. No difference. In Sri Lanka poor eat a 15 rupee 3 inch roti and a half plain tea, while the ruling elete eat……

              10)What recession in Sri Lanka you talk about lower than drinking a half cup of tea and a 3 inch roti.

              Over over one million pounds of Vegetables are thrown into garbage after wasting 85 billion rupee divineguma seeds given to farmers to grow vegetables and no arrangements been made to purchase harvest or place built to store the harvest or distribute them or to can and preserve them. Is this called your Masters great planning…..

              Sri Lanka lost over 50% of our export market, closed down over 200 Factories, lost over 200,000 jobs after end of the Eelam war due to Rakapakse blundars.

              The best opportunity to develop Sri Lanka after LTTE war was missed due to Bad planning and due to Rulers Commission Greed now lost forever.

              I don’t know if you know that USA have already found other energy sources that costs only 10% (pennies) to produce energy than what been paid to oil…….but do not reveal them due to their relations with Saudi Arabia and maintain world oil markets.
              If you or Rajapakses are smart enough do your own research to find those energy sources would be great to our economy.

              Of couse our economy is in total disarray, that it will be very difficult for a future government to put it back to life.

              Keeping people like Veddhas cannot be justified as to that our economy has overcome Global recession.

              It is not the Rajapakse corruption that matters, but the reverse (negative)economic policies that Rajapakses have adopted that ruins our country. Hambanthota Harbour, Mattala wattala, Mihin hemin, concrete roads and building blocks, No…no..rochcholai with no returns are few of them.

              There’s a noble saying, that tells “Dena Welanda Nodena govitana”
              Which say if know do Business, if not go and cultivate farms.
              Please select what you know best.

              I could write more but wait for few more months to see when more murders, suicide, accidents, riots and more boat people starting to cross our shores to see if Rajapakses are keeping economy under control…..or going down under economy.

            Lester , You are twisting the subject now. You said ” more than one million Muslim Indonesian (female) in just Saudi Arabia”. These are the words you first wrote. Check first what did you write. So you are writing just to hate. I am telling you, you are lying. As per the CIA World Fact Book, in 2010 there were only 250,000 Indonesian Migrant workers in Saudi Arabia, including house maids! As per Arab News of 10th March 2013, the number of Indonesian workers in Saudi stands at Half a Million!

            We are not bothered about Indonesian house maids. Come here to my place you can see how your own sisters (house maids) are roaming with Chinese men. Old bithch are with little boys and young ones are with old men. Wthey would have trained by the great Chief Priest of London Thames Vihara Rev. PAHALAGAMA Somarthna thero’s temple. He had an orphanage in Sri Lanka with the blessing

            At this old, you better get davice from PAHALAGAMA Somrahne Thero and use your toilets.

            I have clearly demonstrated the unscientific value of the Quran in the “moment of destiny” thread. Anyway, to refresh your memory:

            Sura An-Naba (78:6)

            Have We not made the earth as a bed

            A bed is flat , not spherical.

              @Lester, have you heard of the saying FOOLS RUSH IN WHERE ANGELS FEAR TO TREAD?
              From TAFSEER IBN KATHEER
              “Have We not made the earth as a bed,” S78:V 6
              meaning, an established, firm and peaceful resting place that is subservient to them.
              This has nothing to do with the shape of the Earth but emphasizes an attribute of the earth.. For the shape go to S79:V 30 which we have discussed previously. You tried to convince the reader that the verse means the earth is flat. As all of us know you are no scholar of Arabic, you do not possess any knowledge of Arabic etymology or philology! Your source of information is from the contributions of known Islamaphobes. Your purpose is not an enlightened academic discussion but to cause mischief spewing hatred, by maintaining ad nauseam that what the Muslims know and believe in as truth are a load of lies! In doing so Lester infers a whole galaxy of eminent Philosophers, Scientists, Poets etc are all ignoramuses. Lester is trying to portray himself as a modern intellectual having discovered facts that have eluded everyone else. Do not mad people think everyone else is mad except their own mentally debilitated selves?

              In the Quran the Earth is described many times as a bed, not in reference to a resting place, but it’s shape. Jamal is trying to use the old excuse that only the Arabic version of Quran is correct, which is nonsense.

              Like a Carpet

              Further eroding confidence is Mohammed’s penchant for employing similes for the earth like ‘carpets’ and ‘beds’ which don’t spring to mind as the most natural analogy for a round earth: “And the Earth — we have stretched it out like a carpet; and how smoothly have we spread it forth!” (Sura 51:48). Only with a great many tucks, darts and safety pins is a ‘carpet’ fitted to a round planet.

              IBN KATHIR – Famous Mufassir (commentator of Quran) مفسر . Well known and respected for his keen memory and a highly regarded scholar of tafsir (commentary)
              The Tafsir of Ibn Kathir is of the most respected and accepted explanations for the Quran and is the most widely used explanations in Arabic used today. Let us examine his exegesis.


              “He is the One Who made the earth as a bed for you.”
              Some recited the word as Mihadan and others recited it as Mahdan, which means `a place of rest that you settle down upon.’
              It also may mean `that which you stand upon, sleep upon or travel upon its back.’


              The difficulty of translating Quran to English is quite another problem and not one to be taken lightly nor is it for the average translators to decide what is meant by the words of Almighty God.
              Let us now view what the charlatan, the pseudo intellect, the reprobate Lester has to say:

              Jamal is trying to use the old excuse that only the Arabic version of Quran is correct, which is nonsense.


              Is it not the height of being ludicrous when you state that the translation of the Quran is more accurate than the original? Is this not insanity?
              We have a learned scholar, IBN KATHIR, Etymologist. Philologist Historian of World repute being challenged by an upstart who doesn’t even know a word of Arabic!
              CT readers can judge for themselves to what purpose Lester is maintaining this persistent troll. You don’t need to be able to solve differential equations and probe into concepts of the Heisenberg Uncertainty principle to conclude that whatever the facts, Lester will leave no stone be unturned, come hell or high water to falsify the authenticity of the noble Qur’an.
              I hope that this provides CT ample proof that Lester is in contravention of the following articles:

              …….but personal attacks (on authors, other users or any individual), persistent trolling and mindless abuse will not be tolerated
              2. ……., but will not allow persistent misrepresentation of the Colombo Telegraph and our journalists/contributors to be published on our website. For the sake of robust debate, we will distinguish between constructive, focused argument and smear tactics.
              3. ….. respect other people’s views and beliefs and consider your impact on others when making your contribution.
              Let the readers judge for themselves. I respectfully opt out of what is turning out to be a meaningless troll.
              Peace!!

              Poor Jamal is suffering from acute dementia. That is what happens when you try to prove the impossible. Unfortunately, when you believe a non-existant creature in the sky (God), will “reveal” to an illiterate man, all of the secrets of 21 centuries of science, in a cloud of hookah smoke, dementia is the only logical outcome.

              To quote the great Sherlock Holmes, There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact.

              Now, if the Quran really told us the real shape of the Earth, then the story would end there. Unfortunately, the word sphere is never used in the Quran, not even once. Is it possible to explain the meaning of rainbow without using the word “colour?” :)

            Obviously Lester seriously lacks comprehension. FYI, to enlighten you on the subject of this discussion here it is in simple English: it is about the experience of a foreign tourist who was raped in Sri Lanka and whose partner was murdered in sri lanka. Her rapists have got away and her partner’s murderers have also got away – for the usual obvious reasons of having the right connections here. This sort of situ tends to repeat itself in other similar situations, like the rape of the child down south by a number of people, one of who was a politician. The issue here is rape in Sri Lanka and the double standards of the law in Sri Lanka. However, Lester likes to drag in the Islam issue, convolute the topic and use these columns to antagonise Muslims by insulting their religion. Some Muslims retaliate by arguing, and he has more fun digging in his sick comments. I suggest that he be boycotted by Muslims – and if he surfaces with other multiple personas – they too be boycotted. Above all, don’t react by returning insults about other communities and faiths because that really defeats the purpose. Reality is that every community and religion has its share of nutters and extremists and a greater percentage of people who are peaceful. Lester’s either planting himself here to create the image of communal disharmony, or else he is suffering from serious paranoia, and in any case he is a racist. Don’t get drawn into his paranoid world.

I have proved that only 0.05% of the Sinhalese population are housemaids. Some of you Muslim commentators thought it’s a great joke that there Sinhalese housemaids in Arabia; now the joke is on you.

            It say…..Occupancies fell in Jan-Nov 2012 against same 2011 period
            As per Sri Lanka Tourism published statistics, the total number of hotel rooms in all categories including unclassified hotels had increased to 15,510 rooms last year from 14,653 rooms in 2011, an increase of 5.85 per cent.
            The overall room occupancy rate indicates a drop of 14.1 per cent in 2012 when compared with the occupancy in 2011 for the period January to November. The year 2011 registered an occupancy rate of 90.3 per cent in all hotels which has fallen to 76.2 per cent in 2012. The registered drop in hotel occupancy is common to all classified and unclassified hotels maintaining almost the average drop across all categories.

            Yes, Apochi. One learns a lot by travelling. India is extremely smelly and congested. The public transport system is worse than the bathrooms at BIA. In certain cities, the dust is overwhelming so as to block out visibility altogether. Many people urinate in public. Beggars/homeless people are everywhere when you step outside. Of course there is “development”, but it is extremely scattered. As I said, Sri Lanka is heaven compared to most of India, save for the 5-star hotels.

              Please add facts about “EVERYTHING” that Rajapakshe Regime has done to save poor girl Rizanna being butchered by brutal Saudis. I bet you even minister of Justice did not make any genuine efforts in terms of her case that was filed in 2005. As Ranjan Ramanayake pointed out not once dozens of time -that the minister of foreign employment was not even aware of the beheading times – that is why he happened to lie further in parliament on very hour she had already been killed by them. Even in that hour that particular one of the most corrupted of them – had been lying that they would take every action to protect the life of Rizana. These are as I got to know are facts. And there were reports I got to read mps and ministers that were sent to middle east several times had just enjoyed their foreign TRIPS instead of providing the poor girl THE ESSENTIALS (a lawyer and interpreter).It was further reported that the agency that had sent the girl to that country using a forged passport had continued their activities until 2010 or so. This is how they have managed to handle it…. as a Muslim, I think, minister of justice could have paid more attention to this, if he is genuine – to me his performance is more or less rajapaksed.

All of it is there in Bukhari; the marriage to 9-year old Aisha, slaughtering 600 Jews at once in the market at Medina. He even said slavery is okay! Do you believe slavery is okay (Quran says slavery is okay).

              Lester, you are uttering a BULL SHIT! Prophet’s marriages are all legal and and were according to the customs practiced by the Arabs’ at that time.

              The leader of your Copied Philosophy is a Playboy. When as a prince Siddartha lived a life of Rock Star – or Brad Pitt, Hefner. He was the richest, best looking, most adored Playboy in the country, living in a mansion with full of best looking, most sexually talented women of the country. His posse of courtesans and wives had the assignment of keeping him entertained and fulfilled so that he would stay focused on the path towards being a King! Temple carvings of Siddatha surrounded by totally hot pleasure girls who existed only to satisfy his every sexual whim are the proof for this even today.

              Siddartha married Yasodera at the age of sixteen after enjoying sex from his childhood. Almost after 10 years his marriage, He got fed up of sex and left his wife and the child, without bothering about Yasodera’s sexual feelings or his little child’s love and affection to attain nirvana! He never allowed his son to marry and his fellow monks were asked to refrain from marriage which is the main cause for child abuse, rape …. in Buddhism!

              About killing and genocides in Buddhism: you should know How many innocent Brahmins were killed by the Murderer Asoka in the name of Buddhism. He destroyed their temples, raped their women slaughtered as many as Brahmins – it was a genocide at that time in the name of Buddhism -like the 21st century genocide of Tamils by your leader! Read the history of Ashoka. Later, Brahmins took revenge by converting Buddhist, destroying Buddhist temples and finally chasing the Buddhism from its birth place India. Those who were converted in this way from Buddhism to Hindusm are called Dalits who were Hindus at the very begging.

              @ Dodu:

              Prophet’s marriages are all legal and and were according to the customs practiced by the Arabs’ at that time.

              How can marrying nine year old girls be legal? Of course it is legal in ISLAM, even today 80 year old Saudi men travel to India for 1 night marriages with 12 year old girls. Like I said, it is a religion for sick people.

              Siddartha married Yasodera at the age of sixteen after enjoying sex from his childhood.

              Nothing wrong with marrying a 16 year old girl. Siddartha (PBUH) was not a pedophile unlike your leader.

              Almost after 10 years his marriage, He got fed up of sex and left his wife and the child, without bothering about Yasodera’s sexual feelings or his little child’s love and affection to attain nirvana!

              It takes a strong mind to give up sex completely. Your leader could not do it, that is why he raped like a mad dog at Mecca, Medina, and Jerusalem.

              He never allowed his son to marry and his fellow monks were asked to refrain from marriage which is the main cause for child abuse, rape …. in Buddhism!

              Most Buddhists are not monks.

              About killing and genocides in Buddhism: you should know How many innocent Brahmins were killed by the Murderer Asoka in the name of Buddhism.

              LOL. Is this what they teach you at the mosque? Asoka did not kill a single Brahmin after he became Emperor. Unlike your pea-brained child rapist pedophile leader who chased the Hindus and Jews out of Arabia and thought a meteorite rock is holy.

              Although a devout Buddhist, Ashoka did not persecute the Brahmins and

              Hindus but proclaimed religious toleration as official policy:

              The king … honors every form of religious faith … ;

              whereof this is the root, to reverence one’s own faith and

              never to revile that of others. Whoever acts differently

              injures his own religion while he wrongs another’s. ^3

              http://history-world.org/indian_empire.htm

              Asoka’s rock inscriptions are world famous. Islam is also world famous – for causing trouble. We have to remove shoes, belt, etc. at the airport because of you people. We can’t even take a bottle of water on the plane! Curse the day that your illiterate leader was born.

          Battling Incest in Sri Lanka:
          FYI – Lester who lives in the glass house:
          “Every year a staggering 10,000 girls in Sri Lanka face sexual abuse by their relatives in families where the mother has taken up overseas employment, with more than half the rapes committed by fathers, says a recent sample study by the Center for Women’s Research (CENWOR). According to the nongovernmental organization (NGO), only around 100 cases are registered annually, mainly because those affected are minors and the law lacks teeth. During the past five years, 512 cases of incest were reported – 54.5 per cent of them committed by fathers. According to the chairperson of the country’s premier child rights NGO, Protecting Environment and Children Everywhere (PEACE), Maureen Seneviratne, the worst sufferers are girls in the age group of 10-14. “Mothers leaving homes as migrant workers has caused fissures in Sri Lanka society in a major way, especially in the rural areas,” says CENWOR project coordinator Lilangi Wanasundara. Most of these women are from the lowest strata of society and are married to men who are casual workers in the plantation sector, construction and so on. Seneviratne says the problem areas are the western coastal belt and the poverty-stricken Uva province, from where around 900,000 women have gone abroad. Around 85 per cent of them are married. Says psychology lecturer at Colombo university, Tilak Hettiarachchi, “In most cases, what happens is that once the wife starts sending money from abroad, the husband gives up his job and hits the bottle” … and preys on his own children. Perhaps the moral police should first clean their own backyards!

            @ Netizen:

            Your Saudi/Arab brothers are the master rapists.

            Over 23% of Muslim children in a University study claimed to have been raped (1/4 of the entire population). Over 46% of Muslim male students in Riyadh are homosexuals, and over 25% of Muslim male student in Jeddah are homosexuals. Homosexual relations are common due to restriction of association between genders.
            The actual percentage of sexual assault on children and women, beyond this University study, is believed to be over 80%.

            http://themuslimissue.wordpress.com/2012/08/02/saudi-study-23-of-arab-children-raped-46-of-arab-students-homosexual-3/

              So, if Saudis are master rapists, why are you getting yourself into a twist over what goes on there. Sri Lanka’s rape record is disgusting, its child abuse record is deplorable, and its claim to high morality is a fantasy. You cannot use Sri Lanka’s example as a pedestal for moral judgement of others, unless of course you have an agenda to rile Muslims here and get them to slander Buddhists and so keep communal tensions brewing. Sri Lanka has suffered enough, thanks to the likes of people of your ken.
              There are other countries with higher rates of rape, for example, some african nations, so maybe you can do the high moral ground act with them, too. Sweep your own backyard first or come clean about your agenda. Suggest that all Muslims just ignore this mutt.

              Most of the rapes in Sri Lanka are due to pedophile tourists from Western Europe. Thailand has the same problem. It is an economic problem; it has nothing to do with Sinhalese culture or Buddhism.

              Child rape, incest, and homosexuality are much worse in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East, because it is easy to get away with these things under Sharia Law.

            You should read what you write. 10,000 cases of sexual abuse a year, but only 100 cases are registerd annually? Hahahaha. What a joke. In any case, the population of Sri Lanka is 20,000,000. That means only 0.05% of the population is engaged in these practices. That is an extremely good record, one of the best in the world.

              No way to clarify the reported figure, but since you are so proud of Sri Lanka’s national rape, incest and paedophilia record, here are more stats for the road. There are more studies on smaller groups. As I said before, your moral pedestal is very shaky, sad to say, and deflecting our own inertia towards solving this issue by dragging in all sorts of extraneous matters like religious intolerance on your part, which does little to further any solution to the problem of the woman featured in this story, does not help the country. Indeed, it appears that your role is one of confusing issues and taking attention away from serious matters. Who have you sold your soul to, and I hope it is worth the money.

              This is for Lester, who lives in a glass house and sits on a clay throne:
              A study conducted in the early 1990s among 899 pre-university and undergraduate students in Sri Lanka revealed that 18% of the boys and 4.5% of girls had been sexually abused in childhood. Most of the perpetrators were known parties such as relatives, neighbours, teachers and priests. The same questionnaire was administered to girls after a lecture on child abuse, and the numbers increased from 4.5% to 12.3%, divulging the abuser as a brother, uncle or father (De Silva, 1998).

              Among both younger and older children in Sri Lanka, more girls than boys, are exploited for child labour as domestics. Boys are exploited more for child prostitution, theft and the sale of drugs (Department of Probation and Childcare services, Ministry of Social Services, 1998).

              In 2002, a study was conducted on 21 cases of incest, through institutions dealing with the victims of incest in the Central Province of Sri Lanka. The study revealed that the typical incest victim is a girl child below 12 years of age, who is unable to resist incestuous advances by an older family member. The commonest abuser had been the girl’s own father, followed by the stepfather, uncle or older brother (Silva, 2002).

            Lester, marring a nine year old girl or sixteen year old girl doesn’t make any difference! Both are minors! Siddartha was 16 and Yasidara was also sixteen. So according to your own deffinition this was a child marriage! If Siddartha can gey married to a sixteen year old Yasodera why can’t Most Ven. Pahalagama Somarathne Thero at 65? That is why he sexually abused a 9 year old girl in London Thames Vihara!

            Yes, Siddartha was not like the Prophet! He was a Prince living in a Palace and a Playboy. He lived a life of a Rock Star! He was surrounded by the most sexually talented women of the country. He was made to enjoy sex from his childhood, so that he would stay focused in the path towards being a King! TEMPLE CARVINGS O F SIDDARTHA SURROUNDED BY HOT PLESURE GIRLS WHO EXISTED ONLY TO SATISFY HIS EVERY SEUAL WHIM ARE THE PROOF FOR SIDDARTHA’S SEX GAME..

            If someone can attain Nirvana while living with his wife and children, then he is greater than Siddartha. You do not need a strong mind to give up compleately. Siddartha never gave up because of his strong mind. He got fed up of sex and consrquently hr as to leave his Wife and the child! Only covereds, those who do not have self confidence, will leave their family and go to jungle to attain nirvana..

            Ashoka was a killer. Have you heard of an ASHOKA HELL – A TOTURE CHAMBER? Ashoka killed Brahmins even after he became Buddhist. He destroyed their temples, raped their women and TOTURE them. You better read dirty side of Ashoka’s history as well.

              Siddartha did not claim to be a Prophet or a messenger. He did not claim to have revelations from “God” while sitting in a cave smoking hookah and abusing little girls. :)

              Asoka was a great warrior who renounced violence. That is what people remember him for. Too bad your leader could not give up violence and pedophilia, even at the very end. That is why it is written in Quran that the faithful will have 72 virgins in Allah’s heaven. So that your leader can continue his criminal activities even after death. :)

The head of the local politician, who is very close to president”s family, would have been separated at the chop, chop square, for raping a tourist and killing her boyfriend in Thissamaharama, the head of the animal who killed his own wife and the child to run with illegal love would have been already gone, the heads of the murderer and his political master who killed Sunday Leader Editor would have been chopped long ago. …..

            To Lester who lives in the glass house: Boys aren’t spared:

            An alarming increase in youth rape is recorded in the country, according to latest official statistics. The statistics indicated that young boys were in the lead than girls where rape was concerned.
            In the wake of this unhealthy development, the organizations handling offenses committed on youth are required to work more intensely to draw up preventive measures.

            The Nation spoke to a range of such organizations. Dulcie de Silva of the Mothers and Daughters of Lanka said that rape in legal parlance covers rape of minors (boys and girls), women and men as well. Any punishment under the penal court section 363 covers, rape on any of the above categories of persons. She further emphasized that the offences are more serious, when it involves minor boys and girls. Rapes on minor boys are more prevalent now, according to her, rape involving boys, carries the same deterrent punishment, as it is for girls. She also said that the common notion that rape applies only for girls, should be dispelled. If we make people aware, that the law applies equally to boys, more offenders would be roped in and the offences committed on boys could be lessened.

            Bimali Ameresekere, of the Forum for Gender Bias Violence said that people are under the wrong impression that rape constitutes only forcible, sexual intercourse in the normal way. According to her, penetration of the victim in any other way also constitutes rape. A lot of people don’t understand this and don’t take action or go to the police, only if there was rape by normal sexual intercourse, they take action. According to Bamali, most of the victims get put off from going to the police and taking legal action due to the long periods of time and the hassle it involved in conducting the case.

          Sidaartha was a Playboy from his Childhood days. He was provided with the comfort of Hot Sexy Girls as early as nine years. He was made to be sex hungry by his father, so that he will be focused in the Kingdom. This is in the history of Buddhism. If a father can provide hot sexy girls to a son what else?

          TEMPLE CARVINGS OF SIDDARTHA SURROUNDED BY TOTALLY HOT PLEASURE GIRLS WHO EXISTED ONLY TO SATISFY HIS EVERY SEXUAL WHIM ps telling the world how sex hungry was this cult,

          Once Siddartha got fed up of sex with human he went to the forest looking for animals!

          Ashoka may be a great worrier for you. He was the killer. Genocide of Brahmins and Jains were remarkable achievements of his rule. Later Brahmins took revenge by chasing Siddartha’s copied philosophy from its birth place.

          Since you are throwing dirt on Quran abd it’s Prophet let me give you some fact from Quran:

          On day a person named Walid ibn Mughira came to meet the Prophet and insulted him using some filthy words. Prophet was silent. But the Creater could not tollarate the words used by this Waleed. Immediately the following Quran surah (verse) was revealed:

          ” HEED NOT THE TYPE OF DESPICABLE MAN,- READY WITH OATH, A SLUNDERER, GOING ABOUT WITH CALUMNIES, ( HABITUALLY) HINDERING (ALL) GOOD, TRANSGRESSING BEYOND BONDS, DEEP IN SIN , VIOLENT, (AND CRUAL), WITH ALL THAT, BASE BORN “

          When these verse descended, Waleed approached his mother and said Prophet cited my characteristics, I am fully aware of them with the exception of the final one (THAT I AM ILLEGITIMATE)” Now if you do not tell me the truth about my birth, then I shall strike off your neck. Waleed’s mother replied, ” YOUR FATHER WAS AN IMPOTENT, SO I SLEPT WITH ANOTHER MAN AND YOU ARE THAT MAN’S SON” that is you are a BASTER!

          Why I am putting this here is that I saw Waleed’s attitudes in all your writings except the final one that your —— should know.

            Quran and Prophet do not offer anything useful to human civilization. The best example is Iran. Iran had a great history when it was Zoroastrian. Darius was a great king who conquered and ruled more land than Napolean. Cyrus was also a great conqueror. Darius and Cyrus each conquered much more land than that illiterate Arabian Bedouin you call your leader. They were good rulers who are remembered well by the Greeks, while Darius is also remembered well by the Jews and honored in the Bible.

            Those who have read Zed-Avesta will see that it is far superior to Quran.

            If Iran had not been invaded by the Muslims, it would be a superpower today.

The illustrations on the temple walls show in lucious detail how beautiful the women were that Siddartha walked away from – a regular Bay Watch of scantily clad or Topless Girls, each one a World – Class expert in sex.

            Waleed ibn Mughira’s mother confirmed that quran was perfect by revealing the secret about his birth! She said to her son: ” …….your father was an IMPOTENT and I selept with another man, during his absence, to whom you were born…..” It is proved that Waleed who insulted the Prophet was an ILLEGITIMATE!

This came about because of his community moved the MP to appeal to foreign office (vote counts). This poor soul Palestinian/British doesn’t seem to have that push and sadly neither his Russian friend.

    What a despicable state of affairs for a population that boasts of 2000 years of civillisation

    Sri Lankans always ridicule the Aussies and say they are born of convicts (which is true) but right now they are far more civilized than us Sri Lankans sadly this is not the only case,Bharatha Lakshman case is another

    Over to hela,Leela (of the Lee Potter Housing scam fame),Sumanasekera and the rest of the loonies for their views on this case!

    The British government is aiding and abetting in all this by not stopping british tourists from visiting srilanka.Not only British,it should have spoken to the German and other governments in EU and had a travel ban until the fellows are jailed and executed.That is the only message that sinks into the buffalo skulls of some people and if you want results you have to forget about a softly softly approach with those types.It is time a hardline is adopted and david cameron isn’t doing it and is the chief culprit in all this.

    Reawakening of South under MR régime. These are the sort of perks offered to by the state to political goons to develop Sri Lanka and tourism. When State, police and defense are working in this fashion, if you are victim foreigner or a local there is very little chance for any justice here. Same story north or south and situ in North is far more worse. Another set of unleash dogs BBS, with blessing from the top has now started creating a new problem all over the country. Poor Sri Lankan’s where can they turn now for any relief.

    This is not a sin according to Buddhism! This is a daily routine crime in Sri Lanka and never Exposed in the media! This time it was the bad luck of the culprits -it happens to be a foreign lady. Sad! this sex hungry animals killed her boy friend!

    Wine stores, brothel houses, casinos, Kasippu dens, killing, rape, child abuse, driving without a lisence, killing own wife and children to run with the illegal love, keepin women in the temples are all allowed in BBS buddhism! The day before the Poya Day, we can see how wine stores are packed by the customers. They are born and bread in this type of culture. A little boy or a girl who goes to the temple sees these crimes are done by their monks. When they grow up they try to imitate the same. By doing these sins ( murder, rape, robbery etc. etc.) they become popular and have a fair chance of becoming a politicians or their close associates!

    If Prez Rajapaksa does not provide protection to culprits and let the law takes its own speedy non-interfering course, then Prez.Rajapaksa’s name could be cleared of many things. He should do it without delay. I do not believe the sob story about this Russian girl.There seems to be more to it that attracted the attention of the alleged assailants to this couple.Too much of Cocaine circulates on this beach.Nevertheless,an independent inquiry is a must. This incident will earn far more adverse publicity for SL tourism as much as or the country’s good name, if any such is left.

    First I am glad that she spoke to the media. Which means she is getting backk on her feet. Thought less act of few could have completly destroyed this young life. My prayers with her for full recovery physically and mentally.

    Reading the posts on this paper and a few others there is one thing common every Sri Lankan irrespective race or religion dispise what happened to her and want justice. Unfortunatly Sri Lanka is not known to do the right thing when politicians are involved. Only way she can get justice is if she and every man and women of conscense force the issue.

    She should give her story to all leading news papers and media in every western country that possible and through other channels. When Sri Lanka gets a pinch in her tourism, politicians will be forced to act.

Man if I was that well connected I’d be doing so much more than just partying, acting gangster and being this kind of scum.

    Victoria should explore possibilities of taking legal action in England, on her own or with the support of a human rights or similar public interest organization. If no such legal redress is available, she should contact the Foreign Office and ask for help in obtaining redress. LONELY PLANET and THE NEW YORK TIMES that according to government propaganda rated Sri Lanka as number one tourist destination in the world should re-examine their criteria (and examine their heads). In evaluating a destination it is not enough to merely use such criteria as the natural beauty of a destination, and how luxurious and cheap a holiday at that destination would be. It is irresponsible for these publications not to divulge information on safety and security, and the state of law and order and individual liberties in a given place, so that if a tourist is subject to a criminal act, he or she has recourse to prompt and impartial legal redress. These publications should redesign their indices by adding criteria about safety, security and the state of law and order, and how well the the judicial system of any given destination is functioning. In the case of Sri Lanka, they must divulge the fact that individual liberties and the rule of law are non-existent, and the judiciary is subservient to the executive, and impartial justice is not prevalent.

    Dear Mr President Rajapakse,

    Please answer. What would have you done if this girl was your daughter? Doesn’t your wife ask you what action you have taken against this man for raping this girl? Shame Mr.Rajapakse. You must know you will have to account for this and many more deeds your government commits.

      To me and many others, as I see, the justice of the particular rape case is the worst I have ever seen in the recent past. Can any couple move there with much hope of safe life at all ? These idiots should be excuted. If this was the case in the States or on an european destination, they would never be discharged. They the investigators repeat that no evidence could be found to prove any of the remanded – can not be acceptable. Her underwear or any other materials should give the authorities to go on with DNA tests. It is just the lie – that nobody would realize, they the authorities can fool the hambantota kind of people but not international community.

      May this injustice be eye opener to Western countries to realize the danger of the govt. All local and international NGOS, human rights activists should come forward to put the pressure on the MR. This can then be the waterloo of his regime. This can then be the waterloo of his regime. This can then be the waterloo of his regime. This can then be the waterloo of his regime.

      This can then be the waterloo of his regime. This can then be the waterloo of his regime. This can then be the waterloo of his regime. This can then be the waterloo of his regime. This can then be the waterloo of his regime. This can then be the waterloo of his regime. This can then be the waterloo of his regime.

        Sam,

        This is very simple to understand. When country is govern by Pimps, whore house owners, drug addicts,drug dealers, Kasippu mudalalis, Ganja plantation owners and Casino mafiosas you have to expect these consequences.

        it goes step by step…. First go and get your Kasippu shot followed by hiroin shot followed by casino jackpot table, followed by Ganja susthi joint followed by more LSD…….will lead to looking for an innocent foreign tourist to rape and most probably to kill.

        This is Sri Lanka’s Hambanthota Val Gemba’s tourism industry.
        Ke…i ve…a ball…a’s tourist Industry…..with Sri lankan/ Mihin loosing 200 Billion Rupees per year and Mattala Airport losing 22 million Rupees per day.

        The two top Tourist Board Directors were fired by economic development minister, both left Sri Lanka with their families to settle down abroad.

      She is a wife who is not second to the wife of former President Premadasa. She has put the man as the caricature to destroy the country. The consequence is – the obvious bancrupt of NATIONAL carrier -SRILANKEN today under her brother´s ill performance. I know some seniors believe that the today´s chairman of SRILANKEN has no record of experience to give life to the airline.

    Rajapakse,s were not saint in Beliatte. Their names were well connected with Murder, arson and Rapes etc. These were common occurrence in their life style.Tangalle rapist Sampath Pushpakumara was continuing what his masters did during their days. I bet that no punishment will be meted out to the gang of rapist led by him because it will expose more skeleton in the cupboard.

    A drunk father rapes his daughter and kills her. A 16 year old girl murders both her parents because they were opposed to her love affair. These are stories we have heard in the past few days.

    The malaise is deeper than we we think. The collapse of value systems which sustained us for centuries is quite discernible in its manifold manifestations. We are governed by our hormones and muscles more than by our minds and values. The politicians represent the most obvious face of this collapse. However, they are only a symptom of a societal malaise . When the law and order mechanisms fails everyone and favours the politicians, the collapse is accelerated. When the president of the country does not know or pretends not to know , what is right and what is wrong, the country has no leeway to hope for better.

      Yeah,Dr Narendran, exactly what you say is merely the truth about the country today.

      But being out of the country – I wonder why responsible law professionals have failed to react yet adequately ? My problem is even if some would stay indifferent, but there should be some groups that have the guts to react fearlessly, this is not far from lanken matters today why ? Can you please explain me giving me some examples. I dont think that the president is accountable for all the illpractices. But I agree with you that his reactions to stay further deliberately – pretending to not aware of the ground realities should be very corret. In Europe, the leaders would react within hours- once they get to read any kind of ill practices that go against prevailing laws. Ministers responsible for their areas dont wait to express their views whatever the case it is. I know ours cant be comparable with those of Europe, but the situation to see sinking further in the home country is really sad.

              First UNP is a One Man show which still under senior citizens control.

              Preserving and safeguarding the Parliament to sustain their elete club membership is their paramount important than the Citizen they represent.

              Parliament is the only Billion Dollar Elete club with all the mega salaries and perks given to Both Governing and the Opposition members with a guarantee for life sustenance.

              You cannot get a 87 Million rupee Annual salary plus all the other beneficts anywhere in the world as opposition leader doing absolutely nothing.

              So they have to preserve their loot and that’s why they are silent on other issues.

              They just play a comedy blame game on the parliament floor to eyewash the public and later join in for a drink at a club or a hotel.

              This is party politics in Sri Lanka.

              With this Rape and Murder Rajapakses have invited Russian Roulette into their home bedroom.

              I know Russian People very well and know how they treat you.
              They are the best to be with as long as you are honest. Otherwise……

        It is only a devil like Putin who can pressure the Rajapaksas to do something about it. Even though Putin is a devil, he will fiercely protect his loyal citizens. Given that the GoSL depends on Russian votes at the UN for many things, Russia has leverage–something the UK doesn’t have enough of– and can use that to bring results.

          Agnos,why should Putin apply the pressure on mahinda just for this woman?Come back from your agnostic world to the real world please before spewing out such eccentricities. Putin is a cold blooded killer,a former KGB agent who is trained to kill.He has no human values and he has passed the stage of feeling sorry for anyone.Also there will be no public pressure on him in russia,because in their culture it is just another woman being raped somewhere and so what.They have not come to a level in russia where they take such things seriously as their society is full of goons and skinheads and violence.

          As for british society,i think they too are quiet because he was a muslim and I believe a palestinian who has obtained british citizenship.For the brits a paki is a paki even if born in britain,let alone a palestinian muslim.They don’t consider them as british citizens and coudn’t care a tuppence about what happens in srilanka to them.Hence the absence of any pressure from David Cameron on mahinda to do something.

            Hey Shankar,

            I don’t know enough about their society, but I have met plenty of Russians here in the US. Even my neighbor is a Russian Jewish man–a lawyer. They are vegans and told us that they studied Hindu scriptures (Vedas) back in Russia. My brother’s neighbors in another state happen to be Russians as well. The impression you have of their society, especially in regard to their womenfolk, is not what I get from them here.

            But I don’t even know if this girl left Russia a long time ago, so I won’t waste time.

              Shankar is primitive when it comes to know Russians. I have much experience with the Russians in their own country and in many other countries.

              They are the best to have company with and the best protectors if you are their friend and if you are honest.

              But they are not the ones to play double game with.

              If Rajapakses think they could play Hambanthota tricks with them, it’s their mistake.

              It is a miracle if Rajapakses could get away from this murder and Rape from the Russians.

              Hope they have herd aabout Russian Roulette.

      Only wayout for her would be through UK authorities since the fact that there are alike cases being reported in Russia. For Russians this is not going to be new.

      I hope English authorities would put on pressure on this through all means to finally learn a lesson to our megalomanic so called president. One would not burn him even on 100 celcius, he is very cunning when it goes with issues of this grade to be gone hidden under the carpet before long.

      Baratha victims shold also join hands with this young victim from Russia to accelerate the process – in that way only we can see the a fair verdict for the all culprits – that are said to be CLOSE friends of the moronic sons of President MR.

      Malinda Seneviratne I am surprised at your comment. Commentators use pseudonyms because, rightly or wrongly they fear being identified and killed by the government. That includes the fear that you may get it done too. That fear is caused by the government you unreservedly support. It is caused by the absence of law and order, lack of justice and fair play in the country. You are unable to see it but that is the reputation this government enjoys. It is not a question of guts. It is a question of safeguarding ones life. Even if people put their names to their comments what difference does it make to you? You only need to respond to their comment, not to their person. Is the need to know the names an attempt to threaten?

      Therefore You may also have a chance to be in that link if you do some DNA tests.

      There’s also a disease called Genetic Disorder.

      Therefore please do some DNA tests to confirm this Rajapakse, Lord Buddha and Malinda Genetic link.

    When I see responses like this is the first time they’ve heard that a tourist has been raped in Sri Lanka, I can’t help but roll my eyes (this is to you Ben Hurling).

    Here’s a news-flash folks. Rapes and violations of tourists (even children) happen in Sri Lanka at an alarming frequency. Authorities, don’t even enter them into books, knowing the victims will leave the country in a few days or weeks and would NEVER RETURN. You will not find this on statistics and you will not hear about them on major media outlets but these incidents are being talked about and often in languages other than in English. The word is definitely spreading around and those in the tourist business in Sri Lanka know what is going on.

    When I see big investments in tourism I see them as the people who went out to sea to collect crabs when the water receded before the Tsunami. Can you convince them to abandon this great opportunity and run to the hills? But for those on the hill, the realization of what it about to happen in heartbreaking.
