Tears Of A War Victim And The Cruelty Of Sri Lankan Forces

By Kishok Jeyachandran –

The following account is based on survivor interviews to Tamils against Genocide. Personal details of Ainkaran (not his real name), place names and dates have been changed to protect his identity.

Ainkaran volunteered in a hospital in the contested North East of Sri Lanka when the government began its final offensive on the Tamil separatists. It was 2009, and the outlook was grim for the LTTE. The cadres had set up fortified settlements far behind the frontline in order to escape the artillery of the Sri Lankan Army, but there were some shells, with a range of 3-5km, that could still reach even these safe havens.

As the fighting intensified and the shells began to fall, Ainkaran helped to spread the sign of the International Red Cross across the roof of a school building that they had converted into a hospital. From up on the roof, you could already see the smoke rising over the trees, and hear the distant thud of the artillery.

When artillery fired, you first heard a deep boom far away, and then after just one second, you knew the shell would be falling. On other days, you could see the sharp shadows of the Israeli-made Kfir jets flying in squadrons of three, swooping in low and dropping their bombs. There were helicopters, too, spraying bullets and rockets into the trees.

The army declared Puthukudiiruppu, Mullaiththeevu and Mulliavalai as no-fire zones, but people said shells were landing even there, so no one went towards them. When a shell fell through the roof of the Ainkaran’s hospital, about 50 people died on the spot. Ainkaran helped to carry the wounded, and drive them to other makeshift hospitals being run by volunteers. One woman had her intestines spilling out of a wound.

When people died, they were laid out in lines outside the hospital, and relatives could come and identify them. If no one came for them after two days, they were buried all together. Many people were too afraid of the shells to come and look for their relatives there, so many were buried without their names.

Ainkaran hid in a bunker in the few moments of rest he could snatch each day. The days blurred together. There were unmanned spy drones circling constantly, and their mosquito whine never left your ears.

In Suthanthirapuram, a place which in Tamil means ‘free village’, a safe zone was established so as to facilitate the distribution of dry food through the World food programme. Ainkaran saw almost 50,000 people gathered there – men, women and children – simply sitting on the ground in a crowd so thick you couldn’t get a vehicle through. There was sobbing, wailing, prayers. 20,000 people were queuing for their ration of dry food, and Ainkaran watched them from his bunker nearby.

Then, from the direction of the Sri Lankan Army lines, the artillery opened up a devastating barrage of fire. The guns fired simultaneously, all at once, into the densely populated areas of the safe zone. Around 500 people were killed instantly, their bodies shattered. Nearly 1,000 were seriously wounded. The tents all around were torn to shreds, and the rations of dry food were destroyed too.

When the army came, they started shooting. Many people ran through the trees towards the army lines, but they were shot, so people stayed where they were and prayed. The shells fell in a sequence, each one falling about 10m further on from the last one. It was as though the army was trying to push people back, combing them out of the jungle, driving them into the sea.

The shells fell on food tents and hospitals alike, under the watchful eye of the circling spy drones. In the next no-fire zone Ainkaran moved to, a hospital bearing Red Cross insignia was struck with such force that it was razed to the ground completely. When the army fired a shell, they waited about half an hour before firing another one directly on top of the first – a deadly tactic designed to finish off anyone who escaped and kill those who rushed to help the wounded.

Ainkaran helped treat people even as medical supplies began to dwindle. The wounded were laid out on a table beneath the tamarind tree, as the doctors conducted operations without antiseptic or painkillers. They tore up bed sheets and sarongs to use as bandages. The patients screamed in pain. People came with eyes dropping out; their skulls split open, with shrapnel in their throats. There were only 6 beds. They treated about 50 every hour.

When Ainkaran worked there, he saw four civilians carried in, moaning, with their bodies burnt all over. The other doctors whispered that it had been a chemical attack.

Space was beginning to run out. People were being settled even in areas that were flooded, and they arrived with their clothes soaked, their documents ruined, their possessions waterlogged. A Red Cross ship arrived periodically to take away those wounded who had a token, and who they thought might survive. They took about 300-400 at a time. Ainkaran and others pleaded with the Sri Lankan army to send them medicine, but the army refused.

When Ainkaran himself was injured in a shell attack, it didn’t stop him trying to help others. He took one day off his work, and then returned to the hospital, to the screams of the patients and dead men and women outside, lined up on the ground without their names.

        The land is given to you on a leasehold basis, renewable on your good behaviour. You should not take it for granted the extension of lease is automatic on expiry.

        When are you going bomb the hell out of your rulers who continue violate human rights, rape, terrorise the people.

      I regret very much the suffering endured by the [HUMAN SHIELDS] that is those children,women and held forcibly by the LTTE terrorists.

      In similar terms so many an ordinary innocent citizen lost their lives due to dastardly vengeful Tamil suicide bombers, sponsored by the ruth less terrorists.

      The Human Rights Watch turned a blind eye towards those activities just as they do just right now. Why is that they do not SEE,HEAR or TALK about atrocities committed by the WEST in the Middle east, Afghanistan at this very moment?

    As we commemorate the centennial of the great war and it’s horror and watch the unfolding horror in Gaza and Syria and Libiya etc. It has become painfully obvious to all, that no war is clean or fair or faught by the rules or devoid of horror. That it is why it called war. Armies do what it takes to win and win is what the SL armed forces did. Was it done nicely and lovingly? No. It is even worse when that kind of war has a blend of full frontal and counter insurgency tactics. In any event future terrorist know that they can never one-up the GOSL when it comes to terror. The JVP was taught that lesson and now LTTEers. The GOSL are masters of Terror. They have leant from the professors of Terror( US and Israel). Next comes the Human rights game. Kishok I suppose is doing his bit. Lets hope it dosen’t backfire like it did on the LTTE.

      There is one big difference here. SL Tamils are born in this country and there are citizens of this country… So it is ethnic war.. Main reason for the brutality happened was majority race was 70% and minority was 20%. What if majority Sinhalese were 50% and Tamil minorities were 40%????

      • 4

        Even if it was 50%-50% the fact of the matter is that all war is not pretty, it is brutal! When one group decides, majority or minority, to drop the pen and pick up the gun. The the dice is cast. It is going to be nasty. It seemed like Kishok was surprised that it was so brutal. If he could find one war where all or even half the rules were followed then that would really be a big story.

      “The following account is based on survivor interviews to Tamils against Genocide. Personal details of Ainkaran (not his real name), place names and dates have been changed to protect his identity.”

      I am sure one can hear the survivor interviews from LTTE terror. However, the Terror by GOSL was on a much larger scale, and there was intense war, ans LTTE used humans as a human shield, exposing more victims.

      however, one needs to bring Sinhala Buddhism into the equation, because it was Sinhalese “Buddhism” and racism that was mostly behind the killings of 1958, 1977, 1983 and 2004.

      • 3

        hmmm…….not sure if ethnic pogroms by SB’s of 1958, 1977, 1983 and 2004 were the same thing as what the army did in 2009…….SB’s in 2009 (hesitant about their claim to Aryan superiority by this present era, in the light of the obvious), would not have indulged in extermination techniques of what their grandparents of 1958 probably did. If the bombing of the North happened in 1958, then it is quite possible that it would have been an ethnic-cleansing program.

        Anyway, Sinhalese being Buddhists and sensible persons throughout, never really wanted to ethnically cleanse Tahmils off the homeland at any time – they just did not want Thamils coming into SB territory and showing off to them of their ability to be more successful than SB’s, especially in the eyes of the Suddhas who were waiting to prove/disprove their racial classifying theories.

        SB’s just wanted to chase Thamils back to their homeland in the North. However, in doing so they compromised their own security to Tamil Nadu. Hence the war against Thamil terrorists and the killing fields.

        Therefore, the article about this man Ainkaran, is to be severely doubted.

            Spring Koha ,
            Not at all. I can give a more objective analysis from where I am. I do really love and care for Sri Lanka, and especially the Lion-Race, and wish her to succeed.

            However, to be fair : Considering the mindset of the average Sinhala person even in 2009(based on the Aanagaraka rhetoric), it is not improbable that one or two stray rockets would have rained down on poor Thamils.

            But! In the international sphere of things and considering what is happening in Gaza, the Anagarika rockets thus become a moot point (and it will be difficult to prove).

            However! In the light of BBS still operating around and being racial towards Muslims (on top of the religious intolerance……“Thamils of Hindu extraction we might accept, but Islamic Thamils, now that is a no, no,” says the BBS), and on top of it, it is the Norwegians (Gosl’s old enemies), who are sponsors of this terror group, there then there could be some proof of Gosl indulging in the Anagarika rockets.

            (Of course we all wouldn’t want Lankan Muslims to ever succumb to the joys of the global Islamic-revival).

              Ramona, let me try again.

              The challenge, HERE in Sri Lanka, is to mould a country that will take its place in the 21st Century. A citizenry that will live in peace and dignity, in mutual respect, and find common endeavour for the goals that we all aspire to. ANY person lucky to be born here (usually without choice), regardless of ‘ethnicity’ deserves a fair crack of the whip.

              To hell with bloody Gaza, Norwegians, the West, Mahavamsa, Anagabloodyrika, etc etc…It is WE here in Sri Lanka who will have to work things out. WE have endured 65 years of hell and it is about time that we stopped raking through the shit of those times and got on with the business of working out a way in which we can share the joys of this beautiful island.

              All this mythical tosh about the ‘LION’ race is bollocks. To hijack a noble animal and use its name for a mongrel race is the biggest travesty of all.

              The BBS and those who run with it are a disgrace, not just to the Sangha but to the entire human race. They are the scum of this earth – what did we do to have to have to suffer them – like an anal rash?

              Even the diaspora – of whatever hue – should mind their business. All this long distance ‘angilli’ business won’t work. Sri Lankans who want to play a part should return HERE and join the struggle.

              Think Ramona!

                Spring Koha,

                I considered………….I truly considered your message as a minority, to come back and squash that neo-fascist right the country seems to be suffering with. If all of us Thamils, Christian Sinhalese, Non-Mahavamsa Sinhalese, Muslims, Burghers, come back to Sri Lanka, then we might all give you great support to take Sri Lanka further into the 21st century and build her up like Singapore, Australia, the US, or even China.

                But I re-considered, and decided that Sri Lanka should move into the post-modern era of less capitalism, more environmentally-friendliness, and more social-dwelling that the Buddha preached. And I am just not ready to work with in the organic paddy-fields and with bees.

                Therefore, I said to myself, let me leave Sri Lanka to the original inhabitants- the SB’s, and that should free up land for the Veddas too.

                Even as the masses embarrassingly scream out the Mahavamsa rethoric (that propels the neo-fascist right), can the Gosl move into the paddy-field and give them the correct wages for an honest days work. It is up to Gosl to form the ethical balance to integrate town and village; minority and majority. Then, and only then, can the final tears of Kuveni be erased, and SB’s will find in in themselves, no necessity to go back to 2,500 year records to substantiate their existence.

        Now about the Muslims on the other hand : The mindset of 1958 against the Thamils by SB’s is being invoked yet again in the light of the Muslims being richer and more prosperous, and acting Arabian.

        Therefore the same racial taunts are being thrown around, about Muslims being from South India (of which the SB Aryan-Mythed persons get some satisfaction out of bellowing out from loudspeakers).

        (Hey!, even if they are from South India, their father’s father’s father came from Arabia, even as Vijaya came from North India).

        And they know too that the Islamic religion cannot be demeaned too much, because in spite of the atrocities committed in the name of Allah(SAWS), Muslims still take up the challenge and make an art-form of it.

          “Now about the Muslims on the other hand : The mindset of 1958 against the Thamils by SB’s is being invoked yet again in the light of the Muslims being richer and more prosperous, and acting Arabian.”

          The core Problem is monk Mahanam lies and imagination and the Sinhalese-Buddhist racism of 5th century. There were no Muslims. Only Tamils and Hindus.

          Sinhala Busshism cannot stand somebody who is not Sinhala “buddhist’.

          this was the Dhamma Buddha taufgt., It is the sinhala “buddhiust” racist Dhamma.

          Why is it thare there are hardly any tamil Busshists in Lanka?

          No Sinhala hindus?

          Methannada, Sinhalese Buddhist went after Sinhala Catholics in 1960s.

          Sinhalese Buddhist went after Tamils in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1990s, 1990s, 2000s, 2010s and still continuing.

          Now in 2014 they are going after Muslims based on some Flimsily excuses.

          The Problem is with Sinhala “Buddhists”, their racism, that has nothing to do with Buddha Dhamma.

          A Potential solution is to get ALL Sinhala Buddhist to become agnostics or atheists, and Discard the Monks and their Hegemony. Then there will be peace in Lanka, the Land of Native Veddah.

    Poppycock! The ones who write this garbage conveniently forget to state that the horrific terror unleashed by Prabhakaran and his band of murderous terrorists on any Sri Lankan that was outside their group, including the Rajiv Gandhi.
    If some civilians died as a result of SLK defence forces’ fighting back, then they were the direct result of the terrorists’ putting civilians as their shields. The ultimate truth is, Prabhakaran the Messiah did it all his way, including the destruction of his own Tamil flock. The final irony was, he put these people in the front as canon fodder, and he, the coward, tried to escape through the backdoor. Huh, What a leader?

      thrshu:

      It is not “some” civilians that died and the SLK defence forces were not just fighting back. If that is the case, and such reasonable force and casualties as may be necessary is recognised in a war, then MR wouldn’t be flipping around from one goal post to another, making a fool of himself. The smarter you think and make of him, the more of a fool that he has been made out to.

      When the UNSG announced the setting up of the “Darusman” Panel, the hoo haa your president and his regime made and declaring non-cooperation was eventually found out to as fooling people like you. He sent a team under the phony current CJ to secretly meet the panel. Incidentally, it was this very phony CJ who declared that he knows about the whereabouts of a missing editor but hauled up by a court, started beating around the bush and what a wonder, he is the CJ now.

      And I can even tell you to go to hell when your sinhala forces murdered more than 70,000 sinhalese in 1the 1970s. What have you guys done about that? And you ought to be ashamed when jokers like you talk about Prabhakaran’s deeds to us. Wasn’t it President Premadasa who gave so charitably guns and money to Prabhakaran? With what face you jokers point fingers at us when the fault lines were created by you sinhalese jokers all through and through. Go and hang yourselves instead of blackening your own faces.

      Careful thrshu. ‘Prabhakaran and his band of murderous terrorists’ were the culmination of of years of goading of our Tamil brethren by our Sinhala politicians who tried to to outdo each other in winning the hearts and votes of the Sinhala-Buddhist electorate. I do not think that it was a career choice that he made. That the war went on for over 25 years was due to the vacillation of the various governments over the years. Prabha’s main fault was not to appreciate that 250,000 against 12,000 is NOT a fair fight. AND he did stand and perish with the people he fought for. Respect that.

        I beg to differ.

        He surrendered and was hacked to death after being tortured. The coward like Wijeyweera didn’t have the courage to fight and attain Veera Maranam (Gallant Death).

      What you have written is the typical garbage. Non-factual rubbish,a piece written for the sake of writing. I believe you have plenty of misconception about the whole events that took place and which is still taking place in Srilanka. When mega-lies are repeated by authorities, citizens, i.e. people tend to believe this as the gospel truth. They never pause to scrutinise it, but go on to repeat it over and over again like parrots and believe in it as nothing but the truth. please try and find out the facts and not hear say, all the horrific terror was unleashed by the so called Buddhist State since 1956. I am not an apologist for Prabaharan, but many believe that he was a messiah who had come to protect the Tamils from the state terrorism. State had to demonise and discredit Prabaharan to get the Sinhala masses and few sceptical Tamils to believe what the state had to say, and to support its agenda. A coin has two sides, what you have presented was one side now look at the other side-OK. What is ‘Mahinda Chinthanaya’ it is the Ethnic cleansing/Genocidal agenda to create a Sinhala Buddhist country. now follow BBS activities who are they? Look at government’s responses to its activities. I rest my case, you work out the answer. We are living in the 21st century. Look, What is happening in Srilanka? Is SL in the Medieval period?

      SL state cannot be the sole victor of this war, that ended in May 2009. It had about 20 countries helping in many ways, plus the ‘Karuna-Amman factor’. His men mingled with LTTE by March 2009, as spies, helping SL Forces with every LTTE moves, also involved in shooting at Tamil people who had tried to escape from the war zone, thus discrediting the LTTE. There were many Mercenaries from various countries fighting alongside of SL forces. Ranil W; who also claims the victory of the war was due to him. Yes he did lay the foundation in 2002, getting USA and India to become involved militarily – Maritime Protective zone. Then Gota-R who had claimed that, his RAF men did 8000 sorties of aerial bombing between Jan-May 2009. This Scorched-Earth policy started by JR, continued by CBK and finally finished off by MR. All of them are war criminals and have committed crimes against humanity. Hope the International Independent Investigation of UNHRC will give us a clear picture.

    Bedrock,

    I agree war is not a pleasant thing. I also agree that countless GOSLs have proved that they are masters of terror.

    However I do not agree with “In any event future terrorist know that they can never one-up the GOSL when it comes to terror”.

    The LTTE had the GOSL by its balls for a long time with terror tactics. The demise of the LTTE and the horror of 2009 would never have occurred if not for Prabakaran’s megalomania. Karuna jumpbed ship at an opportune moment for the ruling GOSL and provided all the intel needed to crush Prabakaran. The rest is history.

    If the GOSLs continue to play the race or religion card it is inevitable that a new cycle of terror will rise up and the terror masters GOSL will unleash a new horrible counter terror. The way things are going with the present GOSL, grooming and mollycoddling the militant clergy, JHU and Ravana Balaya sooner rather than later a new terror outfit is bound to rise up – sadly.

      Mohamed,
      The Muslims also committed far worse atrocities against Tamils in the North East. You don’t need to sorry for the crimes committed by the Sinhala state or Sinhalese racists to the Tamils.

      We know you do not worry about the worse atrocities committed by Sinhalese against Muslims even though you gave full support to the Sinhala racist state to massacre thousands of innocent lives. You all enjoyed when the Tamils and Sinhalese were fighting. But we Tamils stand against injustice to all.

    Hello there,

    There was a special eye witness who was entrapped inside the safe zone. He was a TNA Parliamentarian Sathasivam Kanagaratnam. Sathasivam Kanagaratnam testimony was as follows.

    NFZ was used by the LTTE for recruitment. NFZ was also critical for them as medical supplies and food were being delivered there by the ICRC. Without food, medical supplies, recruitment LTTE would not be able to survive. They also knew as soon as people escape LTTE become sitting ducks without cover.

    On the 16th however people begin to escape across the NFZ. Only party with the motive to stop people escaping was LTTE. As people flee artillery rain down in-front of them from LTTE artillery positions placed right around the area.

    Sathasivam Kanagaratnam says around 600 Tamils were killed by LTTE in the NFZ. He has since left the TNA in disgust as they did not lift a finger to help these Tamils.

      Sounds logical,

      author says 500 killed instantly and 1,000 injured
      the proportions don’t add up if 500 were killed instantly I would say at least 20,000 should have got injured instantly.

      Tamil who are clinging on to their asylum claims need some thing go on.

        I wonder why the LTTE diaspora have to keep clinging on to the well deserved and long overdue deaths of a couple of card carrying terrorists like Isapriya and Ramesh as evidence for “genocide” when so many bona fide civilians were supposedly killed :D

    How come no one cries for those in the South who were victims of tiger bombings? Anyway how do we know this story is even true? Could be just another tiger sympathizer slinging mud at the Govt as an act of revenge because they killed his hero prabha.

    This eye witness account is having many LARGE HOLES. NFZ were created by the then Army Comander Lt. General Sarath Fonseka. (Now he is not even a private, as Gota and Mahinda won the war). As soon as NFZ was declared, the forward line of the Army was not even two kilometers from the First NFZ, according to the then Commander. But a very powerful person ( I don’t want to mention the name ) ordered the Army front line to withdraw by 10 kilometers. They followed the orders. At that time LTTE was around 22 km from the NFZ. Army withdrew and LTTE advance and established their Artilery around the NFZ, as they wanted the human shields to save them. Once they were established they start firing at the retreating Army on the orders of a very powerfull man.

    Army Rapid Fire Guns were all computerise once and as soon as a shot comes in that direction the RFG’s start firing automatically. So the Civilians lost their lives, but this eye witness new how to save himself by hiding in a BUNKER belong to LTTE. Where was the LTTE when all these firing happened, were they in Jaffna or Nandikadal?

    Sri Lanka Air Force had only one drone and it got lost few weeks before the time the First NFZ was declared. Army loss 6632 soldiers and Officers trying to do a Huminitarian War with all sofiscatec arms. If the Army lost that amount of Army personals who fired at them, is that the Army itself or the LTTE or the guys recruited from the NFZ by the LTTE.

    Collateral damage of 40,000 civilians is a good proportion against 6632 Army personnels to save 300,000 thousand Human Shield kept by the LTTE. Who ordered theses men and women to leave their houses and go to the Jungle with the LTTE. It was not the ARMY or the AIR FORCE, but they followed the leader and others knowing that they are going to be in the line of Fire. Not for the Blunder Mahinda and Gota did by saying it was a war with ZERO causality after loosing 6632 soldiers and Officers, nothing about these firing on civilians should have come up.

    To cover what Gota and his band of Officers did, they declared ZERO causality. Knish ok Jayachandran can you please ask from this EYE witness what happened to the LTTE. When the Army was killing civilians? I know some abnormalities took place on the last week, but it is not Genocide as 42 PC of people living in Colombo CBD are Tamils to 32pc Sinhalese.

    kj, NEITHER YOUR MONEY OR FUNDS CAN BUY LIVES OR EELAM.
    Say Mea Culpa !! Mea Culpa !! and repent for your madness dreaming of an Eelam at the expense of innocent Tamil Youth & Children.
    A confession with Emmanuel, Rayappu or other Catholic Clergy will not absove yours guilt as they has crossed the path of their MASTER seeking the kingdom of eelam. Thy Kingdom never came.

    Tears Of A War Victim was due to LTTE annointed by the Catholic Church and funded by the Di-ass-pora held these victims and their families as human shields to prolong life to the LTTE to achieve eelam.

    Further the Catholic Clergy said, let them get killed and kill them all. GOD will take care of his people.
    KishKOK Jeyachandran (KJ) you need to submit this issue to the Northern Catholic Clergy who promised the suicide cardres a catholic burial and promised them Martyrdom.

    KJ, Sooner the Di-Ass-pora establish the church of Prabakaran who was equated to the status of Jesus Christ by the Northern Tamil Clergy
    and start worshipping these Martyrs and lighting incence, there will be Peace to those victims survivors.

    These suffering was due to Emmanuel , Rayappu and the likes preaching about the Kingdom of GOD with one foot there and with the other they were looking to place on non existent Kingdom of Eelam.
    Poor expended lives of Tamil youth & Children that were robbed by Diasspora, The Catholic Church and the LTTE. “GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF THOSE WHO ARE HIS.”

    Wonder, whether you have been reading the news these days how the Israel military went about with the business of taking on Hamas and their human shield……..
    Post this question to those conducting external inquiry as proposed by Navi Pillay & the UN.
    These days Navi Pillay & the BKN of UN has gone deaf, dumb & blind to what is happening in GAZA.
    The diasspora nakedness is quite transparent with that of the West.
    Pillay has nothing to hide and Darussmann in actual hiding in shame.

      “and repent for your madness dreaming of an Eelam at the expense of innocent Tamil Youth & Children.”

      Oh you do have a soft corner for Tamil Youth and children. I am stunt.

      “Tears Of A War Victim was due to LTTE annointed by the Catholic Church and funded by the Di-ass-pora held these victims and their families as human shields to prolong life to the LTTE to achieve eelam.”

      Are you saying the innocent Tamils died because of LTTE’s friendly fire and armed forces did not kill them? This is a brilliant argument that MR & Gota should use it in their defence. They will definitely be absolved by the UN.

      I am just wondering as to why I couldn’t think this cunning idea in the first place or for that matter MR.

      “Darussmann in actual hiding in shame.”

      Another gem from you.

      Keep up your thinking the country needs you. If and when Mohan Peiris fall out from grace you have a very good chance of being appointed as the next Chief Justice.

      Anyway where do you get your ideas from? I suppose you spend a lot of your own time sitting in the toilet and thinking for the benefit of this country. It must be a hard work. I congratulate you for being patriotic.

    War whether with the blessings of God as invoked by Bush before invading Iraq or not is evil. Prabakaran is as guilty as the SL forces perhaps more so because he started the armed struggle.

    More than 60,000 Sinhalese too perished. Civilians in the North were dragged into the conflict to form a shield to protect the rebels. Most did not have a choice but some did it willingly. Collateral damage is inevitable in an all out war.

    The rebels killed Budhist monks travelling in buses, nnocent worshippers at Anuradhapura, and bombed the holiest of places for Budhists the temple of the tooth. After invoking so much hatred for such dastardly acts, how can one argue that reacting to them is criminal?

    When considering the relative peace that has been achieved since those horrible days, one can not help but wonder whether it was not worth it.
