The Great Culture Of Tamils Oppressing & Killing Tamils

Chelvanayakam and Prabhakaran are two sides of the same Tamil coin : Chelvanayakam laid the ideological and the political foundations for the Vadukoddai war and Prabhakaran executed it. Chelvanayakam was acclaimed as the “father of the Tamils” (“Thanthai”) and the separatist movement and Prabhakaran became the first born son of the Vadukoddai Resolution that took to violence with fiendish glee. Chelvanayakam promised to give more security to the Tamils by passing the Vadukoddai Resolution which was committed to a military solution. Prabhakaran too was committed to give security to the Tamils by killing more Tamils than anyone else. Chelvanayakam was garlanded by Tamil assassins and even proudly accepted a pottu drawn from the blood of an assassin who placed it on his forehead. Prabhakaran did one better : he became the assassin of Tamil people, particularly Chelvanayakam’s lieutenants, including his deputy Appapillai Amirthalingam. Chelvanayakam participated in satyagraha sit-ins which distributed wooden pistols. Prabhakaran had no qualms about using live ones that killed fellow-Tamils. Chelvanayakam imitated Jinnah of Pakistan and Mujibir Rahman of Bangladesh. Prabhakaran imitated Ciint Eastwood, the celluloid fixer of Hollywood.

Both corralled the Tamil people and dragged them to Nandikadal, promising the elusive Eelam all the way. Both failed to achieve their common objective of establishing Eelam. Both promised to liberate their people from the Sinhala oppression but both ended up, helping each other in their separate ways, to establish the most oppressive fascist regime that imprisoned the Tamils under the jackboot of Prabhakaran. Both had the opportunities to sort out their problems non-violently if they negotiated / bargained with the vulnerable “Sinhala” governments like the Muslim and the Indian minority communities. But both opted for the military solution which ended in a futile war. The Tamils had no one to blame except their foolish leaders who did not know what they were doing. If they knew what they were doing how come they led their people to Nandikadal?

prabhaak gun colombotelegraphThe failed Vadukoddai War remains as the last stand of the violent theories and brutal leaders. It has disproved, once and for all, the claim that violence can achieve what democratic means fail to win. Besides, the future of organised violence seems dim in this post-9/11 era where international opinion militates against terrorist attacks on democratically elected states. Even before 9/11, history has taken the side of non-violent politics. Whether it was the LTTE in the north or the JVP in the south, violence was doomed from the start. The politics of violence, whether motivated by the lumpen Marxist theories of the JVP, or the anti-democratic racist theories of the north, failed to achieve their goals. The state, with all its tardiness and infirmities, succeeded in defeating violence aimed at deposing the democratically elected governments.

The record of the post-independent period establishes that more political goals have been achieved through the non-violent democratic processes than through chaotic and fascist violence. In particular, the failure of the organised violence unleashed by the Tamil leadership in the north confirms, beyond doubt, that the Tamil people deserve a leadership far better than those who competed with each other to be “the sole representatives” of the largest mass graves in the North. In the end, Chelvanayakam and Prabhakaran are bound to go down in history as the most successful undertakers in Sri Lankan politics. They were so successful as killers of their own people that they even managed to be a peg or two above the evil fascist of south, Rohana Wijeweera, the brutal killer of the Sinhala people. Tamil politics failed because they relied solely on intransigent violence in a country where violence was doomed to fail.

The Vadukoddai violence endorsed by the Tamil leadership, without any consideration for the consequences that would inevitably follow when the Tamils were thrown into the fires of hate politics, reveals the racist machinations of the cynical and manipulative leadership of Jaffna. They were as concerned about the morals of the violence they were unleashing as the prostitutes were about their virginity. The horror of the violence unleashed by the Chelva-Prabha duo – officially from May 14, 1976 in Vadukoddai to May 18, 2009 in Nandikadal – leads to the incontrovertible conclusion that both were two misguided missiles. The futility of their brutal violence seen in the post-Nandikadal period make them look like a couple of political idiots who continued in their bloody path knowing that it was not taking them anywhere. Their mindless violence that led to the deaths of tens of thousands does not elevate them to the status of being saviours of the Tamil people. Their failure to deliver the promised political political goal condemn them as evil and immoral political speculators gambling with the precious lives of the Tamils. They fought the longest running war in Asia to achieve nothing. The Tamils gave everything they had to Prabhakaran and his legacy to the Tamil people in the end were (1) his swimming pool and (2) acres of graveyards.

Drunk with the arrogance of imagined power they conceptualised the Eelamist goal and threw everything they had into it without realising that it was a risky gamble that could go either way. In the end it proved to be goal beyond their reach. Their intransigent arrogance was always far greater than their capacity to achieve their goal. Blinded by their inflated arrogance and hate politics they were determined to fight to the last hoping that either India or the West would come to their rescue. What is unforgiveable is that they were throwing the innocent Tamils into frontlines knowing that their days were numbered. A leadership that had no respect for the lives of their people dying in a shrinking and indefensible frontline deserves only utter contempt. There is no heroism or glory in throwing away the lives of other people in the face of impending defeat. It is the dry bones of the trapped Tamils who were forced to stand as the human shield to protect the Thalaivar and his swimming pool that remain today as the legacy of the great Tamil culture of Jaffna. When the Tamil Thalivar forcibly detains his helpless people at gun point to stand as a human shield to protect his back it reveals that he was not only a coward but a heartless exploiter of his people for his own self-centred gains. Tamil people were useful to him only in two main ways : 1. as a human shield to protect him and 2. as cat’s paw to be thrown to the frontline to pull his chestnuts out.

That was not all. In the dying days of the pseudo-state of Eelam, when their politics of hate ran out of new recruits to man the shrinking frontline, the great Tamil leadership came up with the brilliant strategy that not even Napoleon / Clint Eastwood could have imagined : pluck Tamil children forcibly from their weeping mothers’ protective arms and throw them into the frontline where they would face certain death. This was the peak point of Tamil culture. A culture that engaged in the forcible recruitment of its helpless children and remained silent while they were dying in a futile war must be either insane or barbaric. What is the quantum of morality left in a society that sends its children to fight the wars of their ageing and pot-bellied leaders? This subhuman culture of Jaffna was even blessed by the Church which gave a helping hand to forcibly abduct the Tamil children who were kept in their care by the panic-stricken parents. The high-profile moral agents of Jaffna, in the Churches, in politics, in the media, and academia, went along with the most obscene and oppressive regime that took the children away forcibly to fight a losing war. Today the pro-Prabhakaranistas are parading as high priests of morality in the corridors of the UNHRC and pointing an accusing finger at the government of Sri Lanka that put an end to senseless killing.

In hindsight, it is apparent that the Tamil culture was based primarily on hate politics. It was the fuel that kept the Tamil politics burning. First, the Tamil leadership hated each other, sometimes more than their bete noir the Sinhalese. Like all Tamil leaders they were obsessed with the idea of being “the sole representative of the Tamils.” G. G. Ponnambalam and Chelvanayakam hated each other and fought bitterly in public, hurling abusive names at each other (“liar’, “thief”” etc.,) and accusations of political betrayal. All Tamil leaders try to beat each other in the Tamil electorates by raising the bogey of the Sinhala man. After Ponnambalam went for “50 –50” it was politically logical for his rival, Chelvanayakam, to go for separatism, which was one step ahead of “50-50” to beat the rival. If Ponnambalam went for 50% why not go the whole hog and ask for 100%? It is primarily this competition for electoral votes that drove the peninsular politics from one extreme to the other.

Second, the upper caste hated the dalits and vice versa. Saivite Jaffna Vellahlas wielded all the power they had to keep the marginalised dalit victims of Saivite Hinduism suppressed. Third, when, in the post-Vadukoddai period, power slipped from the traditional Vellahlas into the hands of the new leadership headed by Prabhakaran he first turned his guns on his political fathers. He slaughtered the entire Tamil leadership because the ambition of being “the sole representative of the Tamils” is the main driving force of peninsular politics. The hate politics of Tamil rivals is as great as their hatred of the Sinhalese or any other outsider who is seen as a threat to be the “sole representative of the Tamils.”

Hate politics of the Tamils is encapsulated in the violence of Prabhakaran. He began his career by assassinating Alfred Duraiappah, one of the finest mild-mannered, reasonable, and peace-loving Tamil gentleman I’ve met. He also ended his career by killing the Tamils fleeing from his gulag into the arms of the Security Forces who gave them food, shelter and medicine. The oppression and killing of Tamils by the Tamil leadership has been the standard political culture of Jaffna. Jaffna was a glorious haven for the English-educated Saivite, Jaffna Vellahlas. It was hell for the non-Vellahla dalits who were not allowed even to step into the seventh outer court of their sacred temples to worship their common God/s.

By the 70s Tamil ideology had crystalized into pure hate politics. Those who were not with Chelvanayakam – Prabhakaran line of politics had to be eliminated. When Appapillai Amirthalingam, leader of the TULF, who was close to Prabhakaran, was questioned about the killing of Duraiappah his response was to say : “What else can you do with him?” (p. 44 —The Arrogance of Power, Myths, Decadence and Murder, University Teachers for Human Rights (Jaffna), Wasala Publication, July 2001). Commenting on this facet of Tamil politics Prof. Rajan Hoole wrote : “However, the hate campaign against those who disagreed with the nationalist claims (of the Tamils) and the very act of usurping the right to Duraippah’s life, set the direction of the Tamil politics on the course of tragedy. Grief over Duraippah’s death brought forth an outpouring of tears. Today there are no tears left.” (p.19 – Ibid).

Jaffna was dragged into a futile war by their own leaders that brought untold suffering particularly to the Tamil people. The decision to go to war until they achieve Eelam was taken solely by the Tamil leadership that met in Vadukoddai on May 14, 1976. It was the Tamil leadership that declared war, financed the war, directed the war, recruited forcibly even children to the war, internationalised the war that was eventually waged by the cruel and fascist leader who was the first born child of the Vadukoddai Resolution : Velupillai Prabhakaran. The decision to go for a military solution, without knowing which way it would go, was irresponsible, immoral and suicidal. In declaring war when negotiable options were available, however tardy it may have been, was a crime against peace. IN passing the Vadukoddai Resolution the arrogant and intransigent Tamil leadership was hoping to hold a gun to the head of the democratically elected government. But it backfired. The militarised Tamil youth recruited to fight the Vadukoddai War, turned their guns on the fathers of Vadukoddai Resolution first. The hypocritical and immoral Tamil leadership reaped the violence they sowed so arrogantly. The primary blame for the 33-year-old war that followed should go to the Tamil leadership that took to doomed politics of hate and violence.

If there is any trace of moral values left in Tamil politics in the post-Nandikadal phase then it is bounden duty of the Tamil leadership to abandon hate politics and lead the Tamil people down a non-confrontational path. The Vadukoddai violence came out of cynical, expedient and immoral values inherent in hate politics. A culture that respect humane values cannot subscribe to immoral politics that drag their people violently to another Nandikadal. The abject failure of Vadukoddai violence and militarism condemns the Tamil leadership as deranged lemmings going over the cliff to commit mass suicide.

Looking back of what is left of Vadukoddai violence it is clear that the Tamil leaders were a bunch of incurable mytho-maniacs defeated by the backlash of their own vicious fictions and hate politics. The way forward is not to go back to failed politics. The hero-worshipping of Velupillai Prabhakaran, the personality cult gathered around him, the rallying of Tamils behind his Tiger flag which has no civilised or redeeming symbols, and the expectations of some of the Tamils for his second coming are indicators of the iconic status he enjoys among some, if not most, of the Tamils, both abroad and at home, either covertly or overtly. There is no other figures that towers above him in the Tamil political landscape. Not even S. J. V. Chelvanayakam, the father of the separatist ideology, can hold a candle to him. Chelvanayakam is in fact irrelevant as a model that can inspire the generation led by C.V. Wigneswaran, the Chief Minister of NPC, and his hard-line extremists.

It is indeed tragic to see that in the brief history of Jaffna there is nothing left in the Tamil culture there is nothing left in the collective psyche of the Tamils to hero-worship other than Prabhakaran — the wild beast that came out of the womb of Jaffna. This questions the fundamental values of the Jaffna Tamil political and moral culture. If at the end of eight centuries of recorded history, starting from Jaffna’s first settlements in the 13th century, according to Prof. Sinappah Arasaratnam, the history of the Sri Lankan Tamils has climaxed in producing only Velupillai Prabhakaran – the biggest known persecutor and killer of Tamils, including its leaders, children and oldies – what does it say about the culture of Jaffna? When identical fascist leaders like Prabhakaran are rejected in other civilised cultures (examples : Germany (Hitler) and Cambodia (Pol Pot)) why are the Jaffnaites hanging on to his brutal and obscene flag? And why have the Jaffnaites failed to find a more humane alternative to the sub-human politics of Prabhakaran? Are Jaffnaites bereft of all human values to fall at the feet of the power-drunk, fascist Tamil leader who trampled them and kept them as slaves under his political jackboot? Or are they abject fools who are born to be sado-masochists ever willing to be kicked around by their leaders who treated their fellow-Tamils as dehumanised objects, fit only to fill empty graves?

Perhaps, a better way of comparing the Tamil fascist movement is with that of the JVP – the fascist movement of the so-called liberators of the south. They were not only wiped out also by “the Sinhala governments” but their failed politics, wrapped in brutal violence, have been erased from the political stage without leaving cult heroes. More than that, their leaders have apologised to the people for the crimes they committed against their own people. Nor is there a hero-worshipping cult thrown round Rohana Wijeweera to perpetuate or glorify his violence. And the left-overs have taken to democratic politics.

It would have been conducive for the intractable politics of reconciliation for leaders of the north and the south to offer their apologies to the Tamil and Sinhala people. As far as I know the Sinhala leaders have apologised to the Tamil people. But I am yet to hear the apologies of the Tamil leaders to the Sinhala people. It has only a symbolic value, something like two opponents shaking hands over the net after a tennis match. But Tamil arrogance would dare not go that far thinking that it would be an admission of guilt on their part. So let’s leave it out. What would be admirable and meaningful would be apologies from the Tamil leaders to their own people for misleading them and dragging them all the way to Nandikadal and committing crimes against their own people en route. If the Sinhala leaders could apologise to the Tamil people, quite rightly in the spirit of reconciliation, why is it difficult for the Tamil leaders to apologise to their own people?

No they will not. They will continue to blame everyone else –the British, the Indians, and, of course, the Sinhalese — without ever accepting that the Tamil leaders have been the perennial oppressors and assassins of Tamils. The killing of Tamils by Tamils began with Sankilli going down to Mannar on the Christmas eve of 1544 and massacring 600 Tamil Catholics for owing allegiance to the King of Portugal and ended (hopefully?) with Prabhakaran bombing and shooting the Tamils leaving him and rushing into the safe arms of the Security Forces of the vilified “Sinhala Government”. With all their faults and failures the Sinhala people have consistently risen to give a helping hand to the Tamils in times of crises, whether it is the tsunami or providing security to the Tamils hunted by Prabhakaran. There is always so much to be gained by helping each other. But how is it possible to get together when the Tamils are led by a Chief Minister, Wigneswaran, who begins by chanting Sanskrit prayers and ends by worshipping in English “Swamy” Premanada, a murderer and a rapist of young girls? (Explanation: His lachrymose appeals to Prime Minister Modi to save “Swamy” Premananda are in English).

What is the future of Tamils when the Tamils are led by worshippers of murderers, rapists and oppressors of Tamils, including Prabhakaran — Wigneswaran’s other “Surya Devan”?

      Q & A
      —–

      Eye witnesses are usually unreliable. Here are some other possibilities.

      Q: Throwing infant children in to hit boiling tar. A:Tamils are black. May be the people were just bathing those kids in hot water.

      Q: Having sex with dead LTTE female careers A: Careers of what HIV? Anyway they looked dead and sniped because of the dots. They were probably enjoying the first experience of sex in their lives. (answer obtained by joining the dots)

      Q: JR giving Tamil electorate list to his thugs to attack and kill the Tamils and delaying the curfew until the job is done. A: JR gave that to protect Tamils from the marauders.

      Q: Murdering in cold blood unarmed Tamil children? A: You mean there were armed children too? Who armed them? Murdering old men and women who surrendered. Where? Nadikadal? Why were they trying to go to the Army side? Sick of life?

      An alternative possibility.

      Q:Throwing infant children in to hit boiling tar. A: They were not infants. They were just Kala Veddahs. The small size made them look like infant children.

      The list goes on and on.

    Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game. (Michael Jordan)

    Dravidians are nostly Kali worshippers. It is those Tamils who established the world thugge into the dictionary.

    So, Saivaite Tamils walk naked and they became tobacco farmers.

    Kali worshippers or low caste tamils were violent people because of their religions beliefs.

    “Thuggees, a Sanskrit word meaning concealment, were an organized gang of professional assassins – sometimes described as the world’s first mafia – who operated from the 13th to the 19th centuries in India. Members of the fanatical religious group, who were infamous for their ritualistic assassinations carried out in the name of the Hindu Goddess Kali, were known as Thugs, a word that passed into common English during the British occupation of India.
    Thuggees worked by joining groups of travellers and gaining their trust before surprising them in the night and typically strangling them with a handkerchief or noose, a quick and quiet method, which left no blood and required no special weapons. They would then rob their victim and bury them carefully.
    Their crimes involved a high degree of teamwork and co-ordination both during the infiltration phase and at the moment of attack. Each member of the gang had a special function such as luring travellers with charming words, acting as a lookout, or taking the role of the killer.
    According to the Guinness Book of Records, the Thuggees were responsible for approximately two million deaths, however estimations vary widely since there is no reliable source to confirm when the practice first began

    Don João da Austria a Catholic convert or Konnappu Bandrara founded Kandy Kingdom in the late 16th century. Latter it was ruled by a Tamil family called Madurai Nayakars. When it was handed over to British by two notorious traitors named Ehelepola and Pilimathalawa, Uncle and Nephew team, it was the year of 1815. As a preamble to seek surrender to British, these goons killed more than 1500 of their relatives, torturing and brutalising, including new born babies. That is why Hybrid patriot is worried about the decapitated 600 Christians deaths whom Chakkiliyan feared as traitors. Latter the Kotte’s slave King donated 6000 Sinhala Mercenaries to capture the Jaffna Kingdom. The reason is Jaffna did not give up to Portugese just the way kotte did. Kotte was founded by a Tamil minister called Alahakoon. Alahakoon founded Kotte in 1412 because the Jaffna was a constant threat to Kotte. A Tamil army commander called Sapumal Kumaraiaya subdued Jaffa Kingdom temporarily. But right after that Jaffna again raised up and almost about to wipe out the Kotte. This is reason Kotte voluntarily surrendered to portuguese. It was technique to stay being not captured by Jaffna. That was reason Kotte King donated 6000 mercenaries to portuguese to capture Jaffna.

    Though Mahavamsa is clearly telling Ellarala is Tamil it did not go to tell Dutugemunu is Sinhala. Because at 6th century Sinhala did not existed. It was a vernacular Tamil exited. Though Mahanama concocted racial stories just because he was chased from Tamil nadu, he did not make the mistake Hybrid Mahindapala is doing.

    Hybrid Patriot Mahindapala is reacting to the call of NPC CM CV for the UNESCO to write the history books. He is so nervous the truth is going to come out. The past president Richard.P wiped out the JVP. Then he was looking for Mahindapala. Only Thalaiyar Pirapaharan was able to save Mahindapala from Richard P. If Thalaivar was not born, even the bones of Mahindapala would not have been remaining by now.

    The poor [Edited out] Mahindapala is telling an story to us the way they parangiyada kotte giya vage.

    A Great Article from HDM

    I read this article and found it to be great. It makes me want to read his other articles too. I expect many criticisms and adverse comments about my post from my fellow commentators. But then that is how life is. For example, HDM sees Prabha as a monster of unimaginable proportions, who led a whole community to disaster, while many Tamils see in him a diametrically opposite Surya Devan.

    The article contains gems like, “Prabhakaran too was committed to give security to the Tamils by killing more Tamils than anyone else”. “The Tamils gave everything they had to Prabhakaran and his legacy to the Tamil people in the end were (1) his swimming pool and (2) acres of graveyards”. Very true indeed.

    Instead of rubbing these facts on the faces of the poor Tamils who are trying to recover from a calamity that few other communities have faced in recent past, and saying so insensitively like I did before, “What can you expect from people who worship monkeys riding donkeys”? , I thought, let us be scientific and investigate why the Tamils exhibit such lemming like behavior of following leaders like Prabha, which is certainly not a trait that Sinhalese have.
    I found a possible answer in the brain structure of the Tamils. Let me explain briefly.

    Development of the Brain in animals: The primitive brains that low level living creatures possess are very rudimentary. As an example, the tape worm that lives in human guts has a brain of about 160 neurons. It uses this to navigate. As early living beings evolved to become more complex creatures, adapting to slowly changing conditions in the habitat they live in, the initial mechanism for change was the DNA. A virus for example has around 10,000 bits of information in its DNA. The same information content as a page in an average book. Why so few? Because that is all that is needed for it to survive and reproduce. No brain is required for that. Viruses are parasites.

    As animals evolved to produce more and more advanced species, the DNA was found to be inadequate to make the required changes at the speed required. DNA changes are extremely slow and hence are not sufficient to ensure survival in fast changing environments. Thus the animals had to evolve something faster in response if they were to survive. Nature’s solution was the brain.

    The Corpus Callosum: The primitive brains were just the brain stem and a rudimentary nerve system and sensors. The human brain also has this brain stem. As time passed by the Corpus Callosum evolved in mammals. This dealt with emotions and basic responses such as fright, territorial defense, leadership following, caring for the young etc. Such traits were extremely important for the survival of primates. The humans too have a Corpus Callosum looking after these functions as in all primates.

    The Cerebrum: Finally they developed the Cerebrum and needless to say humans have a large cerebrum, which is what makes them human. This is where things such language, music, logic, reasoning, culture, religion reside. All in all, the average human brain consists of 100 million brain cells, roughly the same as the number of stars in the Milky Way Galaxy. But what really matters for memory and reasoning power is the number of neural connections that is possible, which is 100 trillion in the case of an average human.

    What has probably happened is that the Tamils on average do not have a Cerebrum of the same level as many other races, such as the Sinhalese. Thus their Corpus Callosum plays a relatively larger role in decision making than in the Sinhalese. In the Sinhalese on the other hand, the Cerebrum plays a relatively larger role in decision making. This means that, while in the case of Sinhalese, the decisions made by the part dealing with, let us say, the trait of the willingness to follow a leader without question, is conditioned and controlled by the cerebrum, in the case of Tamils, such conditioning and control is less. That is why they follow destructive leaders like lemmings without question and create disasters for all.

    This in my opinion is why, Sinhalese are so unruly and do not respect authority while Tamils are more disciplined and subservient to their leaders. One feels sorry for them because it is not their fault that this anomaly exists in their brains.

    This is just a theory to be discussed and verified and should not be taken as Gospel truth.

      Edwin, I think Mahidapala and you are biased and jumping to conclusions here by ignoring certain facts.

      Granted for the sake argument that Pirapaharan was a megalomaniac and Tamils were leader followers, your theory does not explain why Pirapaharan became such a megalomaniac. What triggered him? I think it was the continuous provocation using extreme violence by the Sinhalese obsessed with Maha Vansa and the Dharmadeepa concept.

      So the root cause was the bestial mentality of the Sinhalese Buddhists. No wonder they had to apologize.

        A Cool Breeze in the Hot Desert

        Thiruvathavoorar Lakshminarayan, This is the kind of discussion I like. Only problem is your name. Too long and too difficult to pronounce. It is like Putthukkudduyirippu. It was so long that that SL army guys could not pronounce it. Every time the radio operators tried to say the name they collapsed with broken teeth and bitten tongues.

        If that is what the Tamils could achieve with their inferior alphabet, the mind boggles to think of what they could have achieved with a proper alphabet like Sinhala. The war could have been won by them with no other weapons. Finally, they used the shorter version Purippu (not Parippu). Until then the Army had to ask and eat Parippu everytime they tried to say Putthukkudduyirippu.

        Any way you seem to be a different type of person from the normal TC. I am not sure whether you are male or a female and but your words without any malice is like a Cool Breeze in the Hot UAE Desert.

        Only thing I can say is, as Nirmala N says there are bad elements anywhere and unfortunately a group, race or country is usually judged by the few bad things that the few bad people do rather than the many good things that many good people do.

        Please await my next comment.

        Tamil violence against Muslims

        Thiruvathavoorar Lakshminarayan, Assuming that the Tamil violence was justified by the Sinhalese violence, I would like to ask why the Tamils evicted the Muslims en-masse from the Jaffna peninsula with only one day’s notice? What about the many mosque massacres, the most heinous being machine gunning of 1,500 Muslims while they were praying. What had the Muslims done to earn such huge punishment from the Tamils?

                Tamils in Big Trouble

                I showed TN’s and Rajash’s posts to my boss and it caused a volcanic upheaval. read on.

                Me: Aziz, see the following posts.

                Post 1) EDWIN RODRIGO to Thiruvathavoorar Lakshminarayan:

                My boss jumped up from his chair like a Tomahawk cruise being launched saying something like Ahhhhhhhhh.

                Aziz (my Boss): Oh Allah, they killed Seven Hundred and forty one Muslims? While at prayer? Men and Boys? With AK 74’s? I thought it was fifty one. And they say it is OK? Call HR manager. Ask him to send home Tamils immediately.

                Me: But Aziz, There are no SL Tamils here anymore. We sacked them all.

                Aziz (my Boss): Edwin, don’t try to fool me. When I said Tamils, I meant all Tamils.

                Sorry to say this, but 11 Indian Tamils are going home this week with their families. No reason given. They are cultured people like what HDM says.

                See what you have done, TN and Rajash. 11 Tamils lost careers because of your unthoughtful posts. I am not going to sleep tonight. I hope you two do.

                Note: Do not read make the mistake again of reading 11 in the Arabic way. Read it the Tamil way.

                  If no suitable answer is forthcoming, more Tamils are going to go home. I will suggest to my boss that we should propose to his brothers, who all own different parts of the group to get rid of all Tamils.

                  It is understood that there are 66 Tamils in the group.

      It is plainly obvious that Mahidapala gives you energy! It is getting very difficult for the bigots these days as you guys are being isolated and hung out to dry! It is evident that Mahidapala is getting increasingly desperate as his recent vomits have been well below the belt even to his standards!

      You, such, KSS, bullah, and the rest are getting very hot under your collars! I am afraid, it is going to get even worse when the screw gets tightened with war crimes court and the new constitution centred on a solution for the Tamils. It is going to be hard for you guys to digest!

        “Read 73 in Arabic way (right to left)”

        I figured out it from your’s and Mahindhapala’s writings. It is not in Sinhala or English, all those blah blah are in real Arabic. oooohhhh. I have been doing that for some time to make sense out of both of your writings.

        To answer your fear, I did not think you were 73. It is just your never ending fear. “Anchinavan Kannukku Akaayam Ellaam Paiy”( Coward’s eye see only ghost all over the sky). That is not a big deal; you can learn you Arabic from your Ayatollahs, but don’t surrender too much to your guru Mahindhapala. If he threaten you too much to reel behind him , tell him that I will bring him Richard.P. That is it. Then he will be cup-zip. You won’t have a bit of problem.

    Response to Edwin Rodrigo alias Mahindapala

    It is to the credit of the Sinhalese thugs that, during the 1956-58 and 1983 riots, they were the first people after Hitler, who invented and operated the ill-famous Gas chambers, to do a similar act— pouring petrol over the Tamils and burning them.

      Sinhalese are good at the art of Improvisation

      Both being Aryans, the Germans and the Sinhalese are superior races. But the Sinhalese are better at improvisation. Gas was cheap in 1956 and they used that rather than building elaborate gas chambers and so on.

      My Aunt the Heroine

      In 1956 I was staying at my aunt’s house in Jayanthi Pura, Battaramulla. I vividly remember the racial riots. All house owners in Jayanthi Pura were CGR people. The next door house was owned by a Tamil Station Master. We got the news that the Sinhalese mobs were coming in to attack the Tamils and told the next door people to hide inside our house. We took a great risk by that because if the mobs found that out we would have been attacked too.

      Those people in the mob were the original villagers in the area and we knew them all slightly including Simon Aiya, the leader. He did some work like plucking coconuts for us.

      Ours was the first house along Center Rd. and we were all standing at the gate as on lookers. The mob had clubs in their hands. But we did not see any sharp weapons. Simon said hello to us and walked towards the next house, which they knew was owned by a Tamil.

      My aunty: There is no one there. They all left yesterday.
      Simon: Get that petrol can and we will burn down the house.
      Aunty: What is this Simon? If you set fire to that house ours also will burn down. Please don’t do it.

      Simon: Nona is right. Come let us go.

      With that they walked down to the next Tamil house. We saw them pulling out the old Tamil man and his wife. Simon was about to attack him when my aunt ran to them and said, ‘Simon, please, this is Mr. Ramachandran he is not a Jaffna Tamil. He is a Colombo Tamil’. With that she saved the second family too.

      I am sure there were many unsung heroes and heroines like that who risked their lives to save Tamils. But no one talks about them.

      The Aryan Myth

      The myth about the Aryans is that the standard for Aryans is the German Aryan. Tall, fair-skinned, blue eyes and golden hair. Not so my friends. The standard is the Sinhalese. Dark skinned, short and squat, black eyes and hair.

      The German Aryans followed Hitler without question just as the Tamils followed Prabhakaran. They are disciplined and fear authority.

      Sinhalese on the other hand are unruly, don’t care for authority, and a Hitler will never have a chance with them.

      So what is common about the German Aryans and the Sinhalese Aryans?

        After war ended up enslaved to UNHRC and living with the fear of electric chair That is the only similarity.

        But there is a big difference though!German Aryans handled 32 Nation alone like tigers. SinhaLE Wildlife Sanctuary Aryans took help from 32 nations to fight tigers and sold the Port City to China to stop computer hacking.

        Aryans are one and only; those who invaded India 3000 years called them Aryans. Germans are Caucasians – your are not Aryan but still your sour mouth confirms that you are brother of Morarji Desai.

    Helayas, the Original Aryans

    Mallaiurine, I give you 0 marks. I know you are a good long distance swimmer. But all that swimming across the Palk Strait seems to have short circuited the neural connections in your cerebrum. Water does that. And sea water does that even better. But still, I think it is better to be a brainless moron in Jaffna than a Urine drinker like Morarji Desai in Tamil Nadu. You are welcome to stay here as our guest as long as we like.

    Ok, here is the correct answer. Aryans are descendants of great Ravana, you know the King with whom Seetha eloped, and vanquished your monkey army. Ravana’s descendants, the Helayas, were the original Aryans. Part of this community migrated to Iran (the Ayatollah country) and then to Europe to become German Aryans.

    India was a minor digression. We just kicked the Indians aside and went ahead in to Iran and Europe. The original gene pool is here in Hela country, but greatly improved with time.

    Of course, 32 nations came to ‘help’ defeat you guys, because we were their forefathers, something we could have done ourselves easily. But they begged us to let them join in the game. That is why 40,000 were killed in the last 4 days. They knew we were going to finish you off and wanted a quota of minimum 1000 per country. Read all numbers in the Tamil way.
