The Farce That Is Yahapālanaya – Two Years On And Failing

By Hilmy Ahamed

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe will do well to remember the deceit of Madame Chandrika Bandaranayake Kumaratunga in April 2004. The current President Maithripala Sirisena could repeat history as pressure mounts on him to save his Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP-M).

The Sri Lanka Freedom Party (Maithri Faction), as per media reports has connived and has decided not to abolish the Presidential system. They have proposed to forward President Maithripala Sirisena again for a second Presidential term at the next elections. Maithripala Sirisena vowed, before and after winning in the January 2015 elections that he will not contest again and that the executive presidential system would be scrapped or reformed to provide for a presidency that would be answerable to the parliament. Can the President’s words be taken seriously as he is beginning to break all the pre election promises.

President Maithripala Sirisena betrayed the Yahapalanaya commitments immediately after his swearing in, by bring in to his government the undesirables and corrupt from the Mahinda Rajapaksa dynasty. In August 2016, he nominated the losing seniors in the SLFP on the national list, contrary to good governance principles. He partnered with the UNP to save his skin and the SLFP and called it a coalition for good governance. He didn’t dare to invite the Rajapaksa family in to the coalition, but everyone else who campaigned against him was Kosher. What a tragedy for the regime changers who risked their lives to send Mahinda Rajapaksa and his SLFP vultures’ home. President Maithripala Sirisena who contested as the candidate of the common opposition in one of his early speeches said “I may not be among the living if I had lost”. Just imagine the fate of the ordinary civil society activists and the grassroots supporter’s plight if Mahinda Rajapaksa had won or remained in the presidency through some other means. Most of them would have been fed to the vultures or white vanned. The international community would have come forward to rescue Maithripala Sirisena and his political elite.ranil-chandrika-maithri

The unprecedented corruption, nepotism, political assassinations and violence were the main campaign slogans of the Yahapalanaya in the run up to the Presidential elections in January 2015. Upon President Maithripala Sirisena’s outstanding and hard fought victory in the rainbow revolution, the country demanded that the corrupt during the decade long rule of Mahinda Rajapaksa be brought to justice and the loot recovered. The Maithri-Ranil campaign spoke about the trillions squandered by the Rajapaksa family and their cohorts, some of whom have now fled the country. Others have spent a few days in custody and are enjoying the fruits of their ill-gotten loot. No truckload of money has been recovered or none of the big sharks netted. Is it because of the high tech deception of the money trail or has the loot been shared as was alleged with the LTTE trillions held by KP (Kumaran Pathmanathan).

The bond scam and other excesses by government ministers equal or surpass the scandals that beset the Mahinda Rajapaksa administration. The Prime Minister, Ranil Wickremesinghe hereto Mr. clean, has been tarred with allegations of complicity in the bond scam. His attempt to save his guru and former diplomat Charlie Mahendran son Arjuna Mahendran, the sacked Governor of the Central Bank along with his son in law Arjun Aloysius turned out to be the biggest political blunder in the Prime Ministers’ political history. Where did the proceeds of the bond scam go? Was it to fiancé the outstanding bills of Maithripala Sirisena’s January 2015 Presidential campaign or the UNPs August Campaign? The country needs to know. The Prime Minister’s brilliant Googly of sending it to the Attorney General was the best way to divert attention and buy time to let the memory fade away from the peoples mind, but the ghosts would remain and will wake up at the appropriate time.

The most respected venerable Sobitha Thero spearheaded the civil protest against the Rajapaksas. He died a disappointed and depressed man. Millions of his followers are disillusioned and probably will not forgive the Yahapalanaya at the next elections. His untimely demise is a blessing for Yahapalanaya or he would have the majority on the streets, demanding action against the undesirables.

The Yahapalanaya promise of a ten thousand-rupee increase in salaries for the non-productive and lethargic state sector employees was honoured but is seen today as an ill conceived political bribe to woo voters against the Rajapaksa administration. To address this folly, taxes have been increased, driving the cost of living sky-high, and the farming community let down. The rupee has plummeted to its worst and has forced the government to borrow as much as the Rajapaksa’s or more. The stranglehold by China has increased.

“Saffron Robe To The Fore” concept of the Mahinda Rajapaksa administration and currently endorsed by the President himself in against the minorities proved to be a disaster in Hambantota last week when the Ruhunu Development Project was inaugurated. The monks who were coaxed to lead were all red, dripping with blood when suspected thugs imported to Hambantota from Mattakuliya stoned them. Imagine if the Tamils in Batticaloe or Muslims in Aluthgama had stoned the Buddhist monks? The government ignored the saffron robe brigade when monks led extremists went on rampages against the minority communities in recent months. Thank God, Hambantota did not become the Rathupassala of the current government.

The sellout to China, the entire districts of Hambantota and Monaragala, the deceit that was been portrayed as the investment by Volkswagen and probably many other lies has given a boost to the joint opposition and Mahinda Rajapaksa to stage a come back. The President and the Prime Minister are confident that they can weather the storm and lead the country towards prosperity, but there is a serious threat to stability and peace.

As a private citizen, and someone who believed in the January 2015 silent revolution, I have questions that should have been answered yesterday.

Stolen Billions 

Where is all the loot that was promised to be brought back?. Billions in dollars or trillions in rupees were said to be in bank deposits in many countries, including Dubai and Seychelles. It was alleged that they even set up a Bank of Ceylon branch in the Seychelles Islands to launder their loot. If there was any, the current government should have access to that information, even if the Dubai banks refuses to provide details of Sri Lankan bank accounts. Where are the expensive real estate supposedly held overseas by the Rajapaksa sons and siblings? Have they been traced and questioned, and why are they not being investigated and charged.

Avant Garde 

What happened to the Avant Garde scandal?. Ministers Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe and Vajira Abeywardene of Yahapalanaya were suspected of protecting the corrupt deals of Avant Garde. Many senior retired Navy and other defense personnel are suspected of being employed/ involved. Why is it that the key stakeholders of these scandals are not arrested and taken to task? Was this a fabricated canard to discredit former Defense Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa and win elections?

Wasim Thajudeen

The much talked about Wasim Thajudeen murder during election campaigns is a forgotten case now. Wasim was an innocent popular rugger-rite and a brilliant sportsman who enjoyed life. The Yahapalanaya campaign claimed that the Rajapaksa’s killed him, probably over a love scandal. His remains were dug up and a new autopsy performed in time for the Muslim community to vote the UNP at the August 2015 parliamentary elections. Even his original autopsy reports and samples had gone missing. The OIC of the Narahenpitiya police and the infamous Rajapaksa stooge, Senior DIG, Anura Senanayake who is accused of covering up the murder of Wasim Thajudeen has been in remand prison for a long period. Quite often, there are leaks to the media that senior DIG Anura Senanayake was going to spill it all out and justice would be served. He may have revealed all to the investigating officers, and the government may be holding it as ransom for Shiranthi/Mahinda Rajapaksa obedience. Nothing is going to happen to this lovable compassionate kid because the killers are known and needs to be protected to ensure that President Sirisena’s SLFP would not split. Wasim Thanjudeen’s ghosts will catch up soon to haunt Yahapalanaya. A split SLFP would mean that the SLFP (Maithri wing) would stand no chance at any electoral contest. Make no mistake, The UNP, even though not as popular will still command its block vote and lead the list. The Mahinda clan with its ultra nationalist and racist groups will come as a close second. The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) has a good chance of coming third, especially at the local government elections driving President Sirisena to the 4th position. Herein lies the main reason for the postponement of the LG elections by many months under a government of good governance.

Hate Campaign Against Minorities 

The hate campaign against the minorities has started again after President Maithripala elevated the butcher of Aluthgama, Ven. Galagoda Atete Gnanasara thero to the same level as of the Asgiriya and Malwatte Mahanayakes. Justice Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe, while being a UNP member of parliament is suspected of providing the cover for racists to target minorities, to ensure his Maharagama Sinhala Buddhist vote. He is also suspected of destabilizing the current government to ensure a smooth win, should former Defense Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa enter the fray at the next presidential or parliamentary elections. The support for the hate campaign by Yahapalanaya is reward provided on a platter for the Muslim and Tamil communities for making the regime change in January 2015.

During the Rajapaksa era, Ven. Gnanasara and his bunch of racist hooligans created violence against ordinary mortals, but now they have elevated it to insult almighty Allah, our beloved prophet and the holy Quran. There were 538 incidents of hate, violence and intimidation of Muslims during the Rajapaksa presidency, which allowed them to target the minorities with impunity. There have been over 140 incidents reported under Yahapalanaya and is increasing by the day. The Yahapalanaya has allowed the extremist Buddhist monks to harass the Muslim and Eastern Tamil communities with impunity. No arrests have been made even though over 50 police complaints have been registered against racists. The government also has allowed Facebook warriors to threaten and intimidate Muslims. Dan Priyasath saga is a good example of how this menace could be controlled.

The Muslim Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs)

Minister Rishard Bathiudeen, a close confidant of Mahinda and Basil Rajapaksa during their decade long rule crossed over risking his life to the common opposition and joined the fray to support Presidential candidate Maithripala Sirisena. He brought along 62 Local Government members, 6 Provincial council members and two 2 parliamentarians. His demand was that the Muslim IDPs should be resettled in their former homes within the shortest possible time. Regretfully, even the little that Basil Rajapaksa as head of the Presidential Task force for Northern Resettlement did from 2013 is being revered now through presidential orders. Some environmentalism have joined extremist Buddhists to deprive the resettlement of over 100,000 Muslim IDPs who were evicted in 1990 by the LTTE in the worst ethnic cleansing operation in Sri Lanka.

The scorecard looks gloomy and the future prospects look scary, especially at the thought of a parliamentary coup that could be staged by Mahinda Rajapaksa and the joint opposition to take over the government. Prime Minister and the President will need to look at their old notebooks to ensure that ethnic tensions are minimized and reconciliation fast tracked so that they need not go to Geneva as often as the previous administration did.

    In a set up like this powerless honest people like us are extremely helpless. I am a professional having nearly 30 years experience as a BSc Engineer. I lost all my assets without valid reason. Really I lost all my communication and I am a mad woman in this society. There is a very good reason for that really which is not my fault.I know the whole story of these Rajapakshas. They supported the war. But they have extremely inferior qualities.I am writing with this with responsibility since my family and I are severely suffering today. I am really pathetic about Rajapakshas and the so called Yahapalanaya who is paving their way for Rajapakshas to come shredly. This is a country offered to Noble Triple Gem. The Divine power would look after these two regimes who deceived poor powerless people while people are already seeing what is happening

      Now you are beginning to understand why Amarasiri and others have conferred the titles of

      -Turncoat
      -Traitor
      -Gona( Colloquial Sinhala, whore)
      -Mala-Perethaya (of Those who were killed by Mahinda Rajapaksa)

      and Sevalaya
      (Sleszer, Basically, a sleazer is a sleaze who refuses to accept they’re a sleaze, when everyone knows for a fact, how damn sleazy they really are. Kind of in a perpetual state of self-denial about their sleaziness.)

        Hilmy, quite right!
        Ranil’s greed for power and desperation to be PRESIDENT of SL is as boundless the greed and avarice of Mahinda Jarapassa brothers.

        Corruption today is bi-partisan, UNP-SLFP joint enterprise that works by Dividing, Distracting the moda masses with Hate Speech against minorities while promoting Sinhala Buddhist violence, and ruling the Miracle of Moyas.

        Bond Scam Ranil W-Ravi K. and Sira and cronies in today’s Jaraplanaya govt. are no better than Mahinda Jarapassa and cronies and both sets should be behind bars.

        The fact of the matter is that Sri Lanka would not be at the lower depths if Ranil had not collaborated with MR all those years while in the opposition. Ranil took over the corruption mantle from MR that is the truth. Today Ranil’s economic hit men team is not doing any DUE DILIGENCE on so-called supposed Chinese and US “investments” for which massive tracks of land are being appropriated and people being thrown out of their homes.

        Ranil is committing crimes against Sri Lankan people in the name of development!

    He did not need Bond scam to pay off finances for UNP election. Eran W and NDB funded the elections. US paid over $50million for regime change via Eran W. US did not like MR. Hillary did not like MR. They do not need Arjuna Mahendran to fund elections.

    Prediction: IF My3 runs, RW will be the UNP candidate. RW will win by a landslide because the UNP is now rejuvenated. They are the single largest party in Sri Lanka. RW will get Tamil and Muslim votes; He will get enough Sinhala votes too. Gota is the only one likely to be a threat. USA is already plotting against Gota. Gota cannot get a single Tamil or Muslim vote. He will get a majority of Sinhala votes but that is not enough. RW will sweep Colombo Sinhala votes and sweep Tamil and Muslim votes. Reality is that RW should run against My3 and win. He has had enough of this rubbish. RW will be the only saviour of our nation. That is because he is an intellectual unlike all the village lads we have had so far.

      Sorry, I think RW & MY3 Have lost credibility in Muslim eyes. My gut feeling is that they will vote JVP, OR SIMPLY NOT VOTE. For sure I will not vote UNP having supported them throughout my lifetime.

        You are being arrogant “or simply not vote” – uncivic minded, ignorant from miracle of asia 97% literacy.
        Even Indians and British go to the polls and write- NOTA-” None Of The Above”
        This is counted. Pakistan Bangala all have it.The Americans the Bush family wrote “None of These Candidates” One of the states had 15% – None of These Candidates votes. Only when pollsters start thinking in this fashion that they can expect better quality candidates from the party.

        “My gut feeling is that they will vote JVP, OR SIMPLY NOT VOTE.”

        I do not think JVP has shed its racist past, it is essentially another Sinhala/Buddhist party hoping to win election by other means, branding, re-branding, ….. I found JVP intellectually bankrupt, dishonest, champions of parochialism, Joseph Goebbels to MR’s war against innocent Tamils, was in bed with MR’s clan, opposed to Provincial Councils but never once missed its perks, never surrendered its arms, never said sorry to the people who lost their kith and kin, never ever pressured the MR government to stop the war, ……

        I do not think Muslims are that stupid to vote JVP, a permanent dictatorship, a lumpen proletariat.

        This country does not deserve a North Korean style dictatorship.

      Have you been to Disney Land recently? People have no faith in Ranil after the Bond scam. Ranil could never win an election for years and with the help of Traitor Appa Sira’s help he became the PM. Now that My3 has realised he is a lame duck puppet president, he will join with MR to save his neck soon.

    Buddhist Monks have assaulted Tamil cattle herders in the Batticaloa district while they were allowing their cows to drink water.
    They appear emboldened by the Yahapalanaya, knowing that no action will be taken against them.

    Sumanaratna Thero of Batticaloa is yet to be charged in court for threatening a grama sevaka for carrying out his duty in filing complaints against illegal annexation of land.

    The Yahapalanaya is doomed. The Muslims have already decided to vote against Ranil, Maithri and Mahinda. Unless there is some other decent entity, Muslims will destroy their ballot.

      Tamils need not to read it. Tamils did know where the Muslims leadership is from time of SJV. Muslim Leadership always with the winning team. They never-ever go to King Making. They know if they lose that will be adverse for their perk seeking. So that Leadership waits and goes to sleep with the winner.

      In the last election no Muslims leadership supported CC. Lier Hilmi lying. Now, this Muslim leadership is scared to turn their face to Old King. But, he grows whom he wants inside the Muslim community and gets the Muslims votes. Muslim cannot resist that. Already he is building Mosques for Muslims. He has handed over Gnanam to Yahapalanaya. Like in the 2015 election, when Muslims voted against their leadership, this time too they will vote against their leadership. That is to Old King, not for Yahapalanaya. Here, thousand dogs are barking at the Moon. It doesn’t care. He knows how to get the Muslims votes.

      Proposing JVP by some desperate writers is only joke. In that past they convulsed to spread LTTE racism to attract Yahapalanaya attention. It is now caught in between China and West. So it is not going to dance to the LTTE music of these writers play and for that get hit by West and China. They will come back LTTE music on their own, but not will dance when the Muslim pipers play it and claim that they are only patriotic community of Lankawe. They well understand how much these dodgers attached to Arabic culture and how dedicated they are to spread it. They have no feeling at all for Sinhala Buddhist Lankawe. Remember, Younger Brother Prince sold the Sigiriya land to Saudi to develop pilgrimage. Yahapalanaya stopped it. Latheef wrote “Gnanam trying to claim every rock is his.”

    Disharmony did not have the leagle deeds of the properties in the jungle, through out the program he was nervous an he spread some useless papers on the table and he was fidgeting them also he kept his face down though out.

    The presenter asked why he wasn’t taking leagle actions against his accusers, for that he was mumbling, if rishat goes to court, all his shenanigans will be exposed.

      This was disgusting journalism by Derena. The host did not allow the guest to speak, because the host knew the truth would be revealed. The [Edited out] minister should have stated clearly he is here to speak and not the [Edited out]host, but his folly was his language skills. Even though, he spoke a few Sinhala words, he didn’t understand a thing even when the bloody host asking him sarcastically whether he was living next door to the Dehiwala zoo. The department of government information, the ministry of mass media and the Telecommunication regulatory authority should take immediate action to censure Derena and cancel their licence if they do not rein in these racist presenters. The same TV show host was sacked for insulting Sri Lankan’s best opera singer, but brought back by Ranil Wickramasinge, probably after paying a sum similar to the bond scam stolen from the Employees provident fund and the stock market

    Actually there are no proper statistics that how many Muslims were in Jaffna, some say that there were about 10000 Muslims, half of them went back to Tamilnadu to live with their relatives, the other half of them were settled in Puttalam.

    In 1915 Muslims started the riots by throwing stones at Devala parade. Again Muslims started the Aluthgama riots by assaulting a Buddhist monk. In the Estern province Muslims destroyed the Buddhist archaeological sites. Muslims invaded Kuragala, Devanagala, the lands of Muhudumaha viharaya, Dabulla holy city, Anuradhapura holy city,etc.

    Don’t forget to mention that how many Sufi Muslims were attacked by Wahabi and Salafi Muslims!!!!!!

    Hilmy supported Sirisena like all other majority Muslims and Tamils and the UNP to come to power. He still believes that his leader Ranil is not a racist and an appropriate person to advise Sirisena not to draw racist line. He also warns the UNP of 20 years of opposition should he not put Sirisena under control.
    At the helm of the government with executive powers as the president of the country Sirisena is not under the PM . It’s ironical that Hilmy wrote an article recently under the title “Wijedasa Rajapaksa: Unfit for the job of Justice and Buddha Sasana Minister” in which he blamed both Sirisena and Ranil of leaning towards Buddhist extremism. Hilmy like some UNP media men and many Muslim academics convinced Muslims that the trio (Sirisena , Ranil and Chandrika) would lead them to the promised land.

    He has made a new story now to say that “the Muslims voted Sirisena not because they trusted him.”. The Muslims voted for Sirisena before the parliamentary election when there was no guarantee that Ranil would be the prime minister. The Muslims voters alone cannot make Ranil or his party to be in power for 20 years. Hilmy also issues a grave warning in his previous article that The likely beneficiary would be the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP). Hilmy thinks that he is big enough to make ripples in the ocean as a journalist of “youngasiaTV” but he is none other than a sycophant.

    Ranil will stand no chance if Maithri goes to sleep with Mahinda. I hear Naml boy is lining up a few sexy ones for Sira.

    Ranil may be a good planner but he doesn’t understand politics of PR. He is doomed and the winner will be the F….king Mahinda and Gota Rajapaksa

    SL Muslims go to US Ambassador for guidance on reconciliation and complain about Sinhala Buddhist extremists.

    And they said they are under threat.

    US send their Drones to meet and greet Muslims in the other parts of the world.

    How cool!!!

    SLMC boss Hakeem declared that Ampare District is now totally under his Control.

    Baththudeen has reclaimed 1200 Acres of Mahavamsa Vigin Forest in Wilpattu to setle his flock.

    Fowzie is the Yahapalana Minister of reconciliation.

    Batti CM wouldn’t allow any Buddhas in the East.

    Will the US Embassy arm these poor Muslims to fight Sinhala Buddhist extremists?.

    Or will they get it done through their appendage Batalanda Ranil?.

      [Edited out]We will soon get a US drone up your ass or get Osama Bin Laden who is still alive under US custody to come and use his on you.

    Alhamdulillah, Hilmi is the only Muslim who is fearlessly exposing the jarapalanaya lapses with regard to the Muslims. It is time that writers like Latheef Farook write about the local muslims without talking about Palastine, Syria, Iraq etc.. The primary responsibility of the a Muslim is to take care of his neighbour, whether they be a Muslim or any other. Similarly, Muslims have to defend their own here before they defend Muslims in other countries. People who have access to mainstream media should do it. Hilmi is risking his life, and it is the duty of every Muslim to pray for him. I do it every day in daily my prayers and Thahajath. May Allah protect him and give him more courage.

    What has happened to Hilmy Ahamed. He worked very hard behind the scenes to topple the rajapaksas and now he is firing all guns at Yahapalanaya. Someone from Yahapalanaya must address his concerns, which seems to be racism against his community and the Muslim IDP issues. Both reasonable demands, and as Sri Lankans we should support it.
