The Dickoya Hospital & Muslim Leadership

By Ameer Ali

Dr. Ameer Ali

India’s magnanimous and magnificent gift of a modern hospital at Dickoya built at a cost of 1,200 million Sri Lankan rupees is an act that should put all Muslim parliamentarians and their Arab backers in shame. Although the hospital is located within the Hatton-Dickoya urban council area in the Nuwara Eliya Disrtrict, where the Indian Tamil community is heavily concentrated, yet, it is a gift to the nation as a whole and not to a particular community. The gift also represents the success of a people oriented Indian diplomacy, even though it will ultimately help India reap maximum economic and geostrategic benefits from Indo-Sri Lankan relations.

Since the end of the civil war in 2009 in which India’s covert support to Sri Lanka’s military manoeuvres made the Sinhalese army’s victory against the LTTE easier, India’s overall image in Sri Lanka and particularly within the majority community has become friendlier. The psychological fear that the Sinhalese elite carried for centuries over a threatening South Indian Tamil invasion completely evaporated after the war thanks partly to the role of Delhi and partly to the ineptitude of LTTE leadership. Indo-Lanka relations have improved tremendously since 2009 and Prime Minister Modi’s timely gift of this hospital will certainly cement that relationship. At the same time one should not forget the basic truth in international relations that behind all acts of altruism there is always the national interest. India cannot be an exception to this rule. As Jawaharlal Nehru said in a speech shortly after India’s independence, “We may talk about international goodwill and mean what we say. But in the ultimate analysis, a government functions for the good of the country it governs and no government dare do anything which in the short or long run is manifestly to the disadvantage of that country.”

While India’s gift for the moment will go a long way to improve not only Indo-Lankan relations but also, as one of its side effects, Sinhalese-Tamil relations the Muslim community’s image since the end of the civil war on the other hand has taken a negative turn. In spite of all Muslim parliamentarians allying themselves with the ruling regime and with several amongst them achieving ministerial status with all its embedded prestige, remuneration package and perks, the anti-Muslim feeling in the country is growing by the day. The irony of it is that all these Muslim ministers and their Muslim parliamentary colleagues are proudly trumpeting what a close relationship that they have managed to cultivate with the ruling regimes of rich Arab nations in the Gulf and to the benefit of Sri Lanka. One of these ministers has even gone all out to redesign the urban infrastructural make up of his constituency by planting date palms along the street so that it resembles an Arab town. It is time to stop and rethink about this vainglorious strategy and assess the damage it is doing to inter-ethnic relationship in Sri Lanka.

On the one hand Arab investment is flowing into the island but in what form and to whose benefit? It is coming to build hotels and other tourist resorts to enrich ultimately the foreign investors. Already there is protest against such ventures. On the altruistic side, Arabs have built homes for some of the tsunami victims aimed only at Muslims, funded a number of mosques and madrasas and even helped Muslim students with scholarships to go and study in Arab capitals. All this are purely Muslim focused and not focused on the nation as a whole. Have the Arab countries built and donated so far one single hospital or a nurses training centre, university or a technical institute so that all communities in Sri Lanka can benefit? What a difference would such a gift make to ameliorate the worsening Sinhalese-Muslim relations in the country? The Muslim parliamentarians should bury their head in shame at what India has done in Dickoya.

Muslim leadership lacks a long term vision about their own community as well as the country. Instead of helping the Muslims to integrate and be a dynamic partner in building Sri Lanka this leadership is actually damaging the future survival of Muslims. Sooner they are thrown out better for the country and future generations of Muslims.

    It’s not magnanimous and it’s not a gift; it is a political investment.

      Rightly said..Mr..
      But I feel sorry for people of Indian origin they have been neglected by both India and srilanka..Modi said that Sri Lanka tea is number in the world …who produce it…it is poor indian Tamil workers …do not you think it is not fair for both countries to exploit them? They did not have basic facilities for last 70 years ..why not srilanka do something for them?

        “They did not have basic facilities for last 70 years ..why not srilanka do something for them? “

        Yes. they did something for them. They disenfranchised them. The Sihnala Racist South and Tamil Castist North along with the British Planters joined hands. Only the Sinhala leftist parties opposed it.

        Yres. it is high time, these estate workers who are keeping helping Sri Lanka mai tain 17% of the World market worldwide is helped, so that they can live as decent workers.

        India should be thanked for donating the Hospital for all the people of the area. In additional India is contributing to 4,000 housing Hindus as well as an additional 10,000 housing units.

        What has the Tamil Casteist Vellhasla done for the unfortunate Up Country TAMILS, besides voting to disenfranchise them 70 odd years ago, courtesy of the Vehhahala castists GG Ponnambalam et al?

          Amare,

          Wolf is crying that the goat is getting wet. Your ugly mentality always look for cracks and opportunities to wedge and divide.

          By the way, can you tell me what the Catiest Vellala have done for them – the Vellala- that they didn’t do it to upcountry Tamils?

          Do you know leader Pirapakaran settled a large number of them in Vanni giving them land? But your Rapist army had made almost all those families as widowed and have stolen the land. You don’t want to have an inquiry so that others also can come to know what are you doing to upcountry Tamils. Do you?

          I think, now I get your point. Yes.. You have done a lot to upcountry Tamils, but decent High caste vellala crowd wouldn’t even dream of it.

            2. “Do you know leader Pirapakaran settled a large number of them in Vanni giving them land?”

            In the caste hierarchy, the Karaiyars were considered inferior to the Brahmins and the Vellalar. … The LTTE chief Velupillai Prabhakaran and his fellow Karaiyars perceived Vellala-imposed caste restrictions as oppressive as the alleged Sinhala discrimination against the Tamils.

            In any case, Velupillai Prabhakaran should be commended for his attempts to dismantle the Hindu Scripture based Brahmins and the Vellalar castism and racism, despite his terrorist activities and war crimes.

            Even before Velupillai Prabhakaran using the barrel of a gun,, many have tried to dismantle the Hindu Scripture based Cast-ism and racism, such as Buddha, Dr. Ambedkar and countless others.

            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karaiyar

            2. “Do you know leader Pirapakaran settled a large number of them in Vanni giving them land?”

            The LTTE chief Velupillai Prabhakaran was well aware of the castism of the Brahmins and the Vellalar. Naturally, he wanted to dilute the Brahmins and the Vellalar power and castism, and helping the so-called “low” caste upcountry Tamils was an opportunity to neutralize BOTH the Brahmins and the Vellalar as well as the Racist and (mild Castist) Sinhala “Buddhists”, and use the up country Tamils as a recruitment base. fortunately, the up country Tamils did not fall for this deception.

            Brahmins and the Vellalar will try their bet to keep their power at the expense of others.

            Can’t the Sri Lankan Paras, Para-sinhala ans Para-Tamils, in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho, kick the caste System back to India, where it belongs?

              Amare you are not Philosopher. A Philosopher is not cut and paste king.

              I wrote a full comment. You picked only two questions to answer. But you have answered them either. But you are trying to hang on Wikipedia. You know where I from am. Don’t cut and paste me Wikipedia on that.
              But let me clarify something for you:
              1. In 1957 ITAK got passed a bill even if a private temple, the owner cannot deny entrance for one because of his/her caste. So in Ceylon anyone can go to any Hindu temple. That is why C.Suntharalingam lost his court case in Maviddapuram. Please read that about 10 times because it is not Wikipedia. After 10 times continue to read. Because, I am going to condition the employment of that bill, in the next passage.

              That bill is not used to challenge the position of a Brahmin. That is only challenging the position of Vellala, even though it is not explicitly telling that. Vellalas do not seek redress or retribution under that law. Practically Vellalas and others are not challenging Brahmins’ position. . All temple entries are only about Vellalas status. Even in New York like, London like Western Temples, a Brahmin area is prevented from Vellala to all. Even if a White or Black Prime Minister or President Visits a temple, their maximum status is only like Vellalas. For my understanding challenging Brahmin’s seat is only available in Tamil Nadu. There they teach for some sectors 100% Dravidian (Tamil) prayers. So in those temples, there is no need for Brahmins. Brahmin’s is the segregation comes from latter days Hinduism. We have written this 10,000 times repeatedly in CT; but it is not going into you racist head. I know you don’t have capacity to understand that complication. You know only simple Ayatollahs and Govigamas.

              Sinhalese does not have Brahmin (Varna) system because they are carrying forward what Tamils earlier in Ceylon before they left out with their new language had called Sinhala. Once the Hindu Varna system came into North-east, (around Cholas time) they brought some (very few) Brahmin families from TN and/or Kerala. But they are employees of Vellala or even by lower castes, if the ownership of that temple is with lower caste. Other than Jaffna/Batticaloa, the temples are mainly owned by Brahmins and they don’t work for lower Varna. So in Jaffna system, Brahmins doesn’t rule; Brahmin does not come into caste abolition. They will be remaining as who they are.

              As you know, no castes oppress Vellalas. But Vellalas are capable of oppressing others. Brahmins don’t oppress anybody in North. Nobody bothers them (Don’t include here if some rowdies has annoyed a Brahmin family; that is not Varna based). But their status them is not challenged in caste ablution. In the North, it is mentally and culturally agreed that Vellala will respect Brahmins – but no coercion flow from opposite direction to demand it. Say that when you were in school, you next door man was your teacher at school. So naturally you developed a respect for that man though there were other big guns were in your area. That respect stays in you even if the teacher lost the control on you, after moved out of the school. Even if you become rich and famous, you still will be calling him sir, but not by first name. That is the relationship between the Vellalas and Brahmins in north. So, under those circumstances, Vellalas are never going to ask a court to equal them with Brahmins. So just don’t read idiots Mahindapala and Izeth and foolishly keep repeating here those like broken gramophone record.

              What they two are writing here is, not in North. To come to know, discuss it with a Northern Vellala friend of how its work there.

              Vellala is the last Varna class in Hinduism. But all other Saathi(Jathi) comes beneath them. But Saathi is the division North and South (Sinhalese) had for the last 5,000 years.

              So let us summarize it, if you have got it.
              a. Temple entry agitations or protests in North are about challenging the Vellalas’ position. It has nothing to do with the position of Brahmin.
              b. Northern Brahmin families are employed by other castes for about 95 %( only arbitrary) , So they don’t rule anybody in the North-East. Only Ceylon labor laws can protect them.
              but
              c. In the North-East, a Brahmin’s position is not challenged in temple, even by the temple owner. (In other words, the owner’s access is controlled by Brahmin employee, and owner is 100% dependent on Brahmin to reach the statutes rooms; owner has no access to statues rooms.)

              You don’t read this real situation in Wikipedia.

              Then again don’t go by Mahindapala systems and keep repeating Brahmin Vellala… Brahmin Vellala….. Mahindapala’s system is nowhere in the North. There might be about two more castes in between a Vellala and Brahmin. There might be about 7-8 castes in between Vellala and Kavirayar. But there are Kariyarra family treat them even higher than Vellalas and they do not eat or drink in Vellalas’ houses. I don’t know about Pirapaharan. But I know his family is not fishing Karaiyar(the lowest Karaiyars). So, if he is not above to Vellala, still his families might have been behaving equal with Vellalas. In other words, practically there is little chance Piraphaharan’s family had faced caste oppression.

              Amarasiri has nothing against Tamils. Amarasiri has a lot against castists and racists, both Tamils and Sinhala, that gets in the way of an egalitarian society.

              Only the Native Veddah Arthho have no cast system. The caste system was imported by trhe Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils, to the Land of Native Veddagh Aethho.

              Why can’t the Vellsahala give up their Hindu Scripture based Castism, and Racism and liberate the 50% of the Tamils who are suppressed and discriminated by you castists and racists. The Vellahalas had no empathy for them as well as the up country Indian Tamils.

              Do the Vellahaslas know what empathy means? Is it in their dictionary and Hindu scriptures?

              The Sinhala also have their castism, though milder, and they do not follow Buddhism, The follow Sinhala ” Buddhism” , that is contaminated with castism and racism.

              Please read up on two recent articles by Basil Fernando, on castism and racism, and the comments that followed for your edification.

            Amarasiri is an Egalitarian Rationalist ( based on Reason) Philosopher (Lover of Wisdom).

            Amarasiri is glad that you came into resonance with one of his posts, you still have a long way to go, but keep striving, to get into resonance with the other posts.

            To convince Amarasiri is very simple. Come up with good reasons, good logic, good fact based theories, and data and observations, just like Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, Newton, Darwin etc.

            Why not follow Amarasiri on Twitter or facebook. He posts now and then bases on availability of time. However, Racism and cast-ism are still major challenges. Buddha tried, Dr. Ambedkar tried, and still a major problem in India and Sri Lanka, the Land of Native Veddah Aethho.

            Do the Native Veddah Aethho have a caste system?

              Dear Amarsiri..
              What logics and what rationalism do you have?
              Greek logics or Aristotal logics or what type of logics you have ?.
              Your hatred to Islam and Muslims is very clear..
              Look at you think ..your life philosophy is that you think ..
              You eat and you drink and you die …what is the difference between you and animal if you think like this ..
              Do not you think life should have a noble misson than this? What is that mission ?.it is to find who created this world? Why I’m on this earth? Where do I go after this? Do I become dust and what is my soul ? Do I have eternal life? Do not you want to see your family and relatives one day in your next life..I know you pick up some negative aspects of Islam from oriental writings..
              Do not think that anyone who misguide you will save your soul when you die…if you rationalist co come on answer to these questions I post you ..
              I do not need to see you on youtube or FB..
              Colombo Telegraph is more than enough for us to.discuss.
              As you an atheist …you may not have ethics or moral standard to discuss issues…
              But for the sake of discussion pick up good discussion manners and polite ways to answer my questions ..first we discuss those and then come to other points

                Dear Singhalese pundit

                “Your hatred to Islam and Muslims is very clear.. Look at you think ..your life philosophy is that you think “

                Amarasiri has NO hatred to Islam, Muslims, Hinduism, Hindus, Christianity, Christians, Judaism, Jews and other beliefs and their practitioners.

                Amarasiri criticizers the DOUBLE STANDARDS of these practitioners..After a long history of abuse, inquisitions etc, Christianity seems to have mostly got out of its cocoon.Muslims, Hindu and Buddhists have quite a ways to go.

                If Amarsiri and others can get Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists towards an egalitarian society where they respect each other’s belief’s, and allow those beliefs to be practiced with freedom, Amarasiri is all for it, provided individuals are not discriminated, as in the Hindu Caste System and the Sinhala “Buddhist’ caste system.

                Amarasiri expects the believers to have empathy for the others, and also members within their own beliefs. Right now there is no empathy, or very little empathy, that is the root cause of the conflicts.

                In this respect, the separation of the State and religion is very crucial. Religion is a personal beliefs, with no guarantees. Caveat Emptor!

You think we came out of monkey ?.tell me in evolution theory…if we take your arguements…for instance if we come from monkey and we have reached this man/ human status ? What is next? Are human beings going to form into another shape or another creation …if so, human beings have been living on earth thousands of years we have not seen any one tranforig from human being into animals? Have you seen that process? No way ? If you take your arguements we should reach that by now ..it is mere postulate..not any solid evidence for that…..that is to say man become. Another crenture…

      RE: The Dickoya Hospital & Muslim Leadership

      (300 words)

      “India’s magnanimous and magnificent gift of a modern hospital at Dickoya built at a cost of 1,200 million Sri Lankan rupees is an act that should put all Muslim parliamentarians and their Arab backers in shame.”

      The Muslim Parliamentarians (also non-Muslim Parliamentarians as well) and the Arab backers indeed have no shame.

      The Arab backers are primarily Saudi Wahhabis, Salafis, Tauhehis, Deobandis, Talibans and their clones, who get their directions from the Devil, Satan, Iblis as per the Hadith of Najd. They have caused calamity for the Sri Lankan Muslim as far as inter-community relations are concerned, primarily due to Wahhabis, and furthermore have caused trouble for the Sufis.

      So it is the self-interest of the Devil, Satan, Iblis that is promoted by the agents Saudi Wahhabis, Salafis, and their clones.

      They all have no-shame, and as per Islamic theology, they all will be in Hell-Fire on the Day of Judgement along with Satan, Devil.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hadith_of_Najd

      Scholar from al-Azhar: Wahhabism is a Satanic Faith, the Horn of the Devil that Muhammad Predicted
      Yusri Rushdi al-Sayyid Jabr al-Husni, a Sunni Muslim religious scholar from the world’s oldest and most prestigious Islamic school, the Honorable al-Azhar, has stated that Wahhabis who are also known by other names such as Salafis, Najdis, and Horners, are in fact the Horn of the Devil, a term used by the prophet Muhammad in reference to a satanic faith that shall come out of Najd (Saudi Arabia).

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufxTUFapy1w

      Devil (Islam), Iblis. In Islam, the devil is called Shayṭtān.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devil_(Islam)

      Meaning of Iblis according to Islamic theology
      Iblis takes various roles in Islamic theology and traditions, but the majority gives him a depiction as a failed and evil creature, while other interpretations can also be positive.

        Stop writing Satan of Najd are people following Wahhabism. Prophet Muhammad said only to follow Quran and his Sunna. So will he call people who follows that as Satan of Najd? Do not speak with burrowed or instructed information. Najd is innovation so what he meant there will be people in future who will bring innovation to his teaching and misinterpreting Quran. Those innovators re Shias, Sufis, Ahmedis and the likes. Misinterpretation of this Hadith of Najd was published in the web by Shias and the likes. May be you are a Shia or paid by them or simply a web journalist. Even during the time when this Wahhabism was not known in Sri Lanka, many Muslims, my family and I had never sighted the places like Kataragama, Jailani, Adams peak and many other shrines of saints. Since we follow pure Islam, these are innovations and manipulation of Shaitans in the guise of Muslims to make money. So you will brand me as a Wahhabi? I saw some time back in CT an educated and intellectual Sinhalese Buddhist woman writing about pure Buddhism. Many of the commenters were writing in rage and according to Islamic standard they were Buddhist Satans. So same here with Muslims.

      RE: The Dickoya Hospital & Muslim Leadership

      (243 Words)

      “India’s magnanimous and magnificent gift of a modern hospital at Dickoya built at a cost of 1,200 million Sri Lankan rupees is an act that should put all Muslim parliamentarians and their Arab backers in shame.”

      In addition, the behavior of the Sri Lankan Ulama and Muslim leaders, especially the Political leaders, in failing to resolve the discrimination in MMDA an act should put all Muslim parliamentarians, Ulama and their Arab backers in shame.

      MMDA Reform is an Issue for the Govt. It is Constitutional issue.

      Thanks largely to conservative Muslim clergy and the failure of successive governments to uphold the rights of its people, the reform of the Muslim Marriage and Divorce Act (MMDA) has become a public circus. For months now, and much to the embarrassment of Muslims, this issue has been debated in the public realm making a mockery of both Islam and human rights. This has to end now and doing so is largely in the hands of this government.

      The reform of the MMDA, which amongst other things enables polygamy and marriage to child brides, is not strictly a religious issue. The debates around the reform are more about patriarchal politics than Islam. Those fighting to keep this law, primarily the All Ceylon Jamiathul Ulemma (ACJU), or the leading body of theologians, are not defending Islam so much as an archaic male interpretation of Islam.

      The Muslim Leadership must confront the radicals and extremists, who are following the Satan, Iblis, Devil, and this message must be spread to the ignorant Muslin masses, who have gone down hill ever since reason was downgraded to revelation, i n order to maintain the U lama and Mullah Hegemony.

      Just check up with with Ibn Rushd, Averroes, had to say in the 12th century about the theologians and the Ulama, who lacked knowledge,, and critical thinking skills.

      In Riyadh, Trump to speak about confronting extremism
      May 17, 2017

      Washington — US President Trump will give a speech to Muslim leaders in Saudi Arabia about confronting extremism and will participate in opening a center committed to promoting moderation, national security adviser H.R. McMaster said Tuesday.

      McMaster said Trump would address leaders from 50 Muslim and Muslim-majority countries there, “where he will deliver an inspiring but direct speech on the need to confront radical ideology and the president’s hopes for a peaceful vision of Islam to dominate across the world.”

      “The speech is intended to unite the broader Muslim world against common enemies of all civilization and to demonstrate America’s commitment to our Muslim partners,” McMaster said.
      Trump will also “participate in the founding of a new center intended to fight radicalism and promote moderation.”

      As a token of appreciation and gratitude towards all citizens in Sri Lanka, Ahmad Tea Limited has donated a State of the Art Cancer Treatment Hospital in partnership with the Government of Sri Lanka. In May, the Managing Director of Ahmad Tea Ltd, visited the island of Sri Lanka for the official handover ceremony of the Razavi Medical complex.

      The ceremony was held inside the Apeksha Hospital of the Razavi Medical complex in Colombo, the capital city of Sri Lanka, and included a speech by Mr Rahim Afshar whereby he expressed his delight of having the opportunity to present the hospital on behalf of Ahmad Tea Ltd to the people of Sri Lanka.

      The Jaffna guys are Vellahala Castists. They wont even do anything for the Jaffna “low” caste Tamils, besides discriminating against them. Besides these JAffna Vellhala castist guys, voted with the racist Sinhala South to disenfranchise the Estate Tamils 70 year ago, white the Sinhala Left in the South opposed it.

      The JAffna Vellhala castist guys do talk about the ancient civilization, and of course they use Hindu Scriptures to justify theur casteism.

        Stop spreading misinformation. The Jaffna Tamils were against the Indian estate workers being made stateless and the only person who voted for it was GG Ponnambalam and after that his party was never a major player in the Tamil areas as the Tamils from the north and east rejected him.
        Jaffna Tamils are not as casteist as the Sinhalese as they will accept a non Hindu or a non Vellalar as their leader, however the Sinhalese will only accept Buddhist Govigamma as their leaders.
        As for the Indian origin estate Tamils many times the Jaffna Tamils tried to settle them in the Tamil areas, however every time they did this, the Sinhalese racists led by the Sri Lankan government and armed forces used to forcibly deport them back to the central highlands to live in dire poverty as indentured slaves.
        The irony is Indian origin Tamils who were Sri Lankan citizens were not allowed to settle in Tamil areas, as the government wanted these lands to settle out of area Sinhalese and at times Muslims. As they wanted to change the demography of the historic Tamil north and east. Indian origin Tamils settling in the north and east will strengthen the Tamil presence and the government did not want this. Further they wanted these Indian origin plantation Tamils to live in the estates in dire poverty without any rights and earn the country its foreign exchange. By moving to the north and east and getting land these hardworking people will only improve themselves their community and the position of all the island’s Tamils and that cannot be allowed.

Bunch of ultre racist like you eventually created Buddhism. The Evangelical Buddhism you practice created by bunch of racists like you, Including Manama, Anagarika…..

            Buddha a kshatriya in Hinduism. And that is second to Brahmin. So he never needed to change religion and he never changed or created any religion. Dr. Ambedkar was dalit(Hindi) . He got out of Hinduism, but he did not go to Buddha’s religion, that only Hinduism. Ambedkar could not leave Buddha religion and return to Buddha religion. So he went into Evangelical Buddhism. This Evangelical Buddhism of Lankawe will be wiped out by Sinhalese soon like what happened in Tamil nadu, because of its tyranny on the people.

    Everybody knows, that Musdlims politicians get middle eastern money and build dynasties for them. One got money for the east and he is building Saudi arabian cities there. Most of the muslims living there are Wahabies and they don’t like people from any other religions including those of other muslims sects coming there. Even recently, there was newspaper report about slicing a young adult muslim in the neighbour hood because he was not from the Wahabi sect.

    There there is another politician who gets money from Baharain and he is building a dynasty for him in order to establish desecendants as politicians and he is as rich family. He is also settling people from wilpatty to east side of Wanni. He is the one clearing the national park and settling people.

    So, there are some muslims comes here and talk about how BBS harassing muslims. but, they never talk about how muslims wants Sinhala buddhists to behave in Sri lanka not conducting any religious festivals. They also don’t like buddhist mons walking through their town and had attacked leading to a blood shed. There had been muslims uprisings in some areas against buddhist festivals. Newspapers do not publish those probably because of [pssible public unrest.

    They say sinhala buddhist reaction as Islamophobia. I think that particular journalist in his old age, is getting NGO money from the middle east.

    Anyway, christeans are enjoying it as certainly the friction between two other religions help their cause, probably that is what Satan wants them to do.

    This hospital constructed at a cost of Rs. 1,400 million is a “GIFT” from India. So why bother to connect it with ethnicity (Tamil,Muslim, Indian Tamil etc). This outfit must be looked after and managed well to SERVE all the PEOPLE and beyond that to talk of it in terms of ethnic concepts must be stopped. It must be now a hospital belonging to the PEOPLE of Sri Lanka and vested in the Ministry of Health to MANAGE it well. It is very unfortunate to find even the educated people are making these humanitarian efforts to wrap those in to a bitter pill with ethnically printed labels.

      Pygmalion a Tamil friend of mine from Kalmunai told me how even ordinary Muslims in the area strangely now have lots of money and they are aggressively canvassing and demanding the Tamils to sell their lands to them and are offering them exorbitant prices to purchase their lands. Even if you do not want to sell they are constantly knocking on your door or sending agents to ask if you want to sell. Muslim run councils like in Kalmunai are using all sorts of methods to illegally acquire Tamil lands example town expansion. However the town only strangely needs Tamil Hindu lands to be acquired and given to Muslim businesses to expand but hardly any Muslim owned lands.
      This sort of aggressive ploy was done by the Zionist between the 1920s – 1940s to buy Arab lands in Palestine. Just like how the Gulf Arabs are now funding the Muslims to aggressively purchase or forcibly acquire Tamil lands in the east Mannar and Vanni., rich and influential European and Americal Jews did the same thing in Palestine to acquire lands from poor Palestinian Arabs and are still doing this in Arab East Jerusalem.
      Strange how the Gulf Arabs and local Muslims are decrying and condemning these tactics used by the Jewish state and the Zionists against the Palestinian Arabs and shout scream at the UN and hold demonstrations but are following the same tactics to steal lands from Tamils in Eelam . Hypocrites.

    Hi friends, Present day Muslim politicians are real selfish humbugs but Kuwaiti Fund has done lot of work in SL without making big noise about it. They have funded many bridges and road projects. It’s not only our Muslim leaders but other leaders too not keen and not doing enough in getting GCC countries’ investments to the country. Abu Dhabi is investing US$ 78 B in India, building toll roads on a 25 years BOT franchise. Qatar is putting US$ 16 B in Turkey in Projects, and in Malaysia, in Johor they are building a refinery cum petrochemical complexes in 1000 hectares land area. Recently, when the Saudi king visited, Malaysia Saudi ArmCo announced it would jointly with Petronas of Malaysia build an oil refinery in Johor next to Singapore with an investment of US$7B. All of them are doing lot of work in African countries apart from their huge investments in developed world. Saudis recently put US$ 50B into SoftBank of Japan and US$ 1.5B in Uber. I do wonder what our leaders are doing, and all our ambassadors in those countries are sleeping or minding their private businesses. Not only states but massive private capital too are looking for good opportunities. Abu Dhabi fund is a leader in African countries for in investment in Solar power.

Go and check how many of your families have benefited thus far. Sri Lanka is blessed ince westill have some good people. But it is our fate that we have live with hypocrites and ungrateful

    Poor only understand the poor. India helped upcountryes to have this hospital. India may give some more help. But that subject of help ends there with. But the politics attached with that is different subject.

    We don’t want to get into details. But short look at it: ETCA may never be signed by India. Modi didn’t want to come at this time. But it is Lankawe forcefully dragged him here. ETCA was not the favorite of Old Royal. ETCA is not a contract to ask 40% from Sonia, whether she would have been willing to give that or not. Nobody knows the commercial value of ETCA. If it is $1.5 Billion for Lankawe it may be only for $1.0 billion for India. Or vice versa. It is not something like Lankawe pay $1.4 Billion for Hangbangtota harbor and China construct a harbor for $1.4 Billion. That was the only simple reasons Old Royals rejected. But, as per Colombo media, they co-invest with Chidambaram, Karunanidhi and Sonia so they wouldn’t like to lose that partnership under normal circumstance. So all the article that “only Ranil is selling but Old King didn’t” is only bogus. They sold to China many unredeemable properties which carry the Lankawe’s sovereignty with them.

    Unlike SLFP, India and UNP are arch enemies to each other. Ranil does not want to give anything in Lankawe to India. Thought ETCA is not a property and it’s not coming within the above “anything”, Ranil doesn’t want the ETCA as it is, now.

    Then there the question is why Mr.Modi came or in a better way, why Lankawe wanted him to come here?

    Chandrika and Kathirgamar built an excellent foreign relation by Kathirgamar bashing LTTE. But unfortunately, Old Royals didn’t like Kathirgamar and they cleaned him. Then they went ahead and abused the foreign goodwill to its maximum. When Ex State Secretary took the phone called, Old King left everything behind and ran out of Temple Tree House. Other than Old King, nobody else in the world can do, this ultimate indecisive, Modaya minded, cowardice thing. New King would not do it. Ranil cannot afford to do that. Ranil knows, the master strategist, his uncle, JR struggled to deal with Modaya Rajiv. So he get it clearly that there is no match to him and Mr. Modi. He doesn’t want the history repeated.

    He further has learned that fire can burn by touching the flame. He knows trying to reverse any deeds old Royals signed with China will only double the disaster. He tried stopping Colombo Pong Cing, but ended selling Hangbangtota, surrendering to China’s aggressive bulling. China will be changing the laws of Colombo Pong Cing as it wants. China will be docking its submarine in all Lankawe’s ports as it wants. These are no extrapolations on a perfect data, but only correlation calculations, so I cannot put date when and the port where it is going to be. Then that will be a perfect recipe for India to jump in again. Unlike Sonia, Mr. Modi is not going to sell India’s security for 40% commission. He would not mind to invade in future if left with as the only solution to deal with Lankawe’s Aappa trading.

    Ranil didn’t want Mr. Modi come in as an Invader like Rajiv did to his uncle. So he willingly went and invited Mr. Modi to come as a friend to defuse any tensions could be building up. Ranil said “come machchan come”, so now his hand and mouth were tied when Modi went and spoke at Dickoya Glengairn Hospital. This is what has given opportunity to chewers to mellow something.

    This was only a friendly visit. There is nothing so far suggesting there was intention of aggression. Mr. Modi was in friendly mood. He was leaving happily. This is what Ranil wanted. But there are wounded Lions, who were pricked by the swinging hand of Modi. They are not able to take this as it is. They may not give the chance to Ranil to building on this success of friendship building. If those people are successful, this trip will be mother of all new aggression by India. If they can be controlled and contained, this is the charter of all new friendship.

    Muslim politicians have their secret bank accounts in Malaysia.

    There are many reasons for ever growing anti-Muslim feeling among native Sinhalese:
    During Asroff tenure, Buddhist archeological sites were bulldozed, made lots of fraudulent land deeds, recently his henchmen with fraudulent land deed obstructed the Buddhist monk of building “Stupa”.

    Crook Muslim politician destroyed the Willpattuawa forest and now he is destroying the forests in Kilnochchiya and Mulathive.

    War-hero was insulted by buffoon CM in Eastern Province.

    Muslim politicians have brought ANOTHER ship load of illegal Muslims to Sri Lanka, and they are demanding the government to give illegal immigrants citizenship, housing and other facilities.

    Almost all the high street MUSLIM businessmen are into all sort of illegal/criminal activities.

    Biggest drug smugglers are Muslims.

    Thousand of Sri Lankan Muslim youths have joined with various Jihadi terrorist groups across the world.
    ….the list goes on!

    Amer Ali The Tamil Muslims of Sri Lanka do not want to be Tamil or Sri Lankan anymore but want to claim a fake Arab/Moor origin and look like some carbon clones of the Arabs.
    They are now discarding everything Tamil about them, even the 1000 year old Tamil form of Islam that they brought from their original Indian homeland. The Saree, Tamil customs, Tamil Muslims names like Marrikar Lebbai, Rawther, Kutty, Thambi, and very soon the Tamil language and start speaking Arabic or Urdu .
    They are trying to introduce a culture look dress/name forms and language that is very alien to the island. Even the form of Islam. The Arabs are only funding and helping them to this. Yes the Arabs will fund and help you to look like some pathetic carbon clones like them, as they want to spread their culture, just like the western evangelical Christians churches do, but neither they Arabs or the white westerners will ever accept these pathetic carbon clones of themselves.
    They will only use them and manipulate them for their ends. You saw what happened in the case of unfortunate Rizana, they framed her treated her like dirt and then killed her. When she claimed an Arab origin , they came back and stated that Sri Lankan Muslims are not of Arab descent but of South Asian converts to Islam. Basically Tamil Hindus who converted to Islam. Just look at you, you look very Dravidian. This why there is anger against the Muslims

      “Yes the Arabs will fund and help you to look like some pathetic carbon clones like them, as they want to spread their culture, just like the western evangelical Christians churches do, but neither they Arabs or the white westerners will ever accept these pathetic carbon clones of themselves. They will only use them and manipulate them for their ends. You saw what happened in the case of unfortunate Rizana, they framed her treated her like dirt and then killed her.”

      It is called Self-interest.

      First, it was Buddhism from India, and theit dress and culture

      Then it Was Hinduism from India, their dress and their culture and castism.

      Then Islam from Arabia through India, and their dress and culture.
      Then Papal Catholicism from the West from the Portuguese, and their dress and culture.
      Then Dutch Protestantism from the West from the Dutch,and their dress and culture.
      Then English English Anglicanism from the West from the English, and their dress and culture.

      Now the Arabs think that the Muslims are better off with their dress and culture, and are funding towards that, especially by the Saudi Wahhabi’s..

      Everybody thinks that their religion, their dress and culture is superior to the other’s. What they all lack is empathy for the other’s religion, dress and culture.
      Isn’t it stupid to wear the jacket and tie in the tropical Sri Lanka, the Western Dress, just like what the Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe is wearing. Then they need AC cars , offices and houses, all consuming excess energy.

      May be it is “cool” to wear a suit and jacket with tie in the tropics for the Modayas, Mootals and Fools.

      It is only Gamarala who keeps “cool’ when he is on the outside!

        You have hit the nail on the head. Empathy is sadly lacking.
        Re. the tie-coat syndrome, I think this is half the solution to the power crisis. If we could live without A/C 50 years ago, why not now. The hot air from the AC units also makes it hotter outside these buildings.

      Crow, crow, crow… There again this Tamil crow Siva crowing to show his masters hungry to get the food (payment). I told you earlier no matter how much you waste your energy crowing, you cannot change their history or degrade them even by 0.001%. You cannot change what is in their heart for generations. You tree climbing Australoid descent dravidians. We Moors civilized you in India and Sri Lanka. Moor merchants sold 4 yards of cloth to wrap around your waist which became vessti for you. 6 yards of cloth to women which they wrapped around and tucked 2 yards over the shoulder to cover the breast. Still you can see Tamil old women bare breast without jackets. Lebbai, Marikkar, Moplas (mapilla) Rawther were the groups descendants from Arab, Persian and Turkish traders who came there. If in Tamilnad they were known as Tamil Muslim and if in Malayalam, Malayalam Muslim since they adopted their languages. In Sri Lanka known as Marakkala, Shonakar. Since Turkish mixed people wore fez they were also known as Turukkiyar which became Thulukkar later. However much you crow you cannot bring your Australoid version. When you look at the mirror may be you are ashamed of your Austerloid features. So you get a kick by including Moors too, may be Sinhalese too. Rizana never claimed Arab origin, you fool even members from princely family beheaded for murder and rape. So will anybody claim Arab origin to escape donkey? Why should anybody carbon an Arab or white? May be you are thinking that way because you crows carbon copy as torture claimants. Those days and even now good Tamils are converting to Islam.

        Squeal , squeal , low caste converted pig, however much you squeal squeak or scream you still are no Arab but largely descended from low caste Indian Tamil converts to Islam. Even you DNA states the core heritage of the Sri Lankan Muslim is South India with little Arab.
        The Malayalee Mappila Muslims have the most amount of Arab amongst Indian Muslims and even they have only around 15% Arab DNA and the rest is Indian. Thullukans like you from Tamil Nadu have even far less Arab DNA, 5% the most but shameless claim this as your sole heritage and completely deny your 95% Tamil origin thinking it will look good and advantageous for your low caste backward community from Tamil Nadu.
        Look at all the photos of every Muslim columnist here , not even one looks remotely Arab. They all look typically Dravidian and South Indian that they really are but not one will admit to the truth, even if it stares at them but stubbornly claim that they are Arabs.
        You must relating your family history of how your distant lowly drunken Arab sailor male ancestor, gave some cloth to cover the upper body parts of your distant low caste harlot female ancestor from Tamil Nadu or Kerala. That must be a family heirloom in your family. Please preserve this .

          Are you sure all your own distant female ancestors covered their boobies? I think not. Ther are photos of 19 th century Tamil women in Jaffna with minimum or no upper clothing.
          Ibn Batuta complains that even Muslim women in the Maldives did not cover their boobs, let alone their heads.

            Thinking about your Sinhalese Rodiya/Berewa ancestors ? MMMM. Tamil women wear the saree and even if the low castes were not allowed to wear blouses, they used to cover their boobs and the upper part of their body very modestly and very well , with their Mudania or Pallav. Unlike the low caste Sinhalese and Kerala women who only wore a cloth. Low caste women through out India were not allowed to wear blouses but unlike the Sinhalese and Malayalee low castes who only wore a cloth, so were forced to show their boobs, they all wore saree, therefore were able to very well cover their boobs and upper parts of their bodies very well and be respectable., despite being blouse less.

              Dear RSSS,
              Are you saying that all those voluptous topless women on temple gopurams are immoral and immodest Malayalees? Wow, they must have been very popular then! Since you seem to be high caste, may I inquire whether high caste boobs are flat and therefore not suitable for display in temples?
              Is the lingam inside also modelled on a Malayalee you-know-what, my dear high-caste friend?

        Mad person. Tamil Nadu is famous for producing fine clothes, Silks Muslin Cotton and uncivilized nomadic desert Arabs from the desert who produce nothing other than dates and who even did not have enough water to wash themselves or their dirty backsides, at that time came and clothed the Tamils in Tamil Nadu a place of ancient rich culture and civilization, Whom are you trying to impress you useless good for nothing creature who is really descended from low caste Tamils., Shows your third rate breeding useless good for nothing Islamic convert .
        What is the bid deal about being dark skinned and Australoid? Tell me low caste convert? What is it with you? It is because you are suffering from some form of low esteem because of your lowly origins that you post such rubbish., you Arab worshiping convert. For your information lots of Arabs are black and many even the white ones have African slave blood. This is the reason many have curly hair and thick lips. Is that also an issue to you or because you are a shameless Arab worshiper it is not an issue.
        Shows your breed . You think you are great worshiping your Arab masters just because you are a Muslim and run down your own Tamil origin and heritage and abuse everyone who states the truth, then wonder why Tamils don’t like you people.

    Ameer Ali and the rest of the Thullukans are angry and feel very slighted as Modiji ignored the other large Indian origin Tamil speaking or Tamil community from Tamil Nadu, the Thullukans.
    Why should Modi or any other Indian leader of official acknowledge your community as your community has denied your Indian and Tamil origin and worship everything Arab and Pakistani and now only claim an imagined Arab origin and be part of the Arabian nights nightmare.

      Pandi Kutti,

      Don’t be a cry-baby pannikutty (piglet) that was orphaned, beaten and thrown away from its farm, the ‘peelam’ by the superior forces of the Sinhalese.

      We all know that ever since your daddy pig was sacrificed on 18th May, 2009 for freeing SL from ‘pandikutties’ (or piglets) camouflaged in tiger skins, these left over pandikutties like you started self-satisfying murmur on Muslims – Trust me, we take it funny, and not serious :-)

      And all know who is the mediocre imitators of South. Indian culture without any creativity to create your own identity to the land that you mistakenly claim ownership for :-)

      Only things you have done for the land is destroying physically for over 30 years, and tarnishing outside image by rushing on rusty fishing boats to Australia and the West to make more money telling lies about SL

      The time you spent on fake claiming of high caste among others, could have been put to better use that would have avoided you guys ending up in refugee camps.

      I know the feeling of loosing fathers, but you got to move on getting along with all

        Oink Oink Oink Pandi Kutti loves to see Ishrath ( not Isharath) Thulluka piglet squealing in despair as Modi wants his bacon. Brainless Thullukan, Tamil culture is the same whether it is in South India or in Eelam, just like German culture is the same be it in Germany or Austria or Arab culture . Sinhalese culture is pale imitation of Tamil culture and low caste immigrant South Indian Thullkans trying to pathetically immitte Arab culture. Now squeal. Pandi Kutti loves to hear Thulluka piglet squeal. Especially the squeal of Ishrath( not isharath) piglet

          Pandi Kutty,

          Creating an identity is different from the culture. In what stream Jaffna Tamils have recognized individuals (except for terrorist, suicide bombers and illegally reaching AU / West on fishing boats and human smuggling)??? Even for a Tamil Musical show, you guys have to get some Tamil Nadu artistes down to SL.

          That is why I said you did not create your own identity in the land that you claim to occupy before Sinhalese. But Sinhalese have created their identity, l.iterature etc. Where is yours? Hire from Tamil Nadu whenever needed?

          I have a long pending confusion; if you guys came before Sinhalese to SL, why are your population so tiny? Had your predecessors for generations been castrated? Or did your women give births to all PandiKutties (piglets), so not counted in census?

          I really don’t care you call me Thullkans or Bhullkans, just answer my questions please.
