The IGP Must Resign!

By Malinda Seneviratne –

Malinda Seneviratne

These are days of frayed tempers, perceived grievances, real threats and real fears that can cloud and blow away reason.  This is the hour or the rumor-monger.  This is the hour of the extremist.  This is the hour of the passionate and irresponsible.

The word on the street is ‘Aluthgama’.  Indeed it is the word on every street where matters of yesterday, today and tomorrow, matters of the nation and its destiny, matters of unrest and fear and other related matters are discussed.  Aluthgama moved from the Kalutara district to Colombo and Badulla.  ‘This is 83-July all over again,’ some said.  Not true, but we could get there.

There were arguments over who threw the first stone, as though it justified throw-return and more.  After all it is hard to pin it down to first stone cast when there were only a handful of STF men to ‘protect the (BBS) procession’ in Dharga Town.  STF personnel were clearly confused because their orders were specific.   One source explained thus: ‘The Muslims keep saying that the STF sided with the mob.  We didn’t.  We were acting on our orders which were specific and were about protecting the procession.’

Inspector General of Police N.K. IlangakoonIt was not, let us repeat, not a peaceful procession.  There were anti-Muslim slogans, there was whipping of hysteria, there was undisguised inciting of violence against Muslims in a Muslim majority area by people who had petrol cans and carried weapons. Literally minutes after that ‘first stone’ Muslims and Muslim-owned premises were attacked and torched in Adhikarigoda, Aluthgama and the interior of Dharga Town.

Most of all, it is hard to pin it down on first stone when Buddhist monks torched a shopping complex in Aluthgama more than a month ago over an alleged molestation of a Buddhist child by a Muslim, the relative of the shop owner, when in fact CCTV evidence disproved the allegation. The shop was torched only several days later.

Blaming first-stone-thrower is therefore a joke.

There are questions which are not funny, though.  If Azath Salley was arrested for ‘hate speech’, why is Rev Galagodaaththe Gnanasaara still free?  Why did the Police not prevent the BBS rally despite many pleas to do so from many quarters (a planned ‘BBS’ rally in Mawanella was stopped, after all)?  Why was the STF not ordered to maintain peace but instructed only to ‘protect the procession’?  Why didn’t the police stop armed mobs scurrying around with clubs and violent intent (not just in Aluthgama on Sunday but elsewhere too thereafter)?

Most importantly, why did the Inspector General of Police N.K. Ilangakoon state that a Buddhist monk had been assaulted when he had no evidence to support the claim?  The Judicial Medical Officer’s report which would have either proven or refuted the said monk’s claim (as of Friday) has not been issued.  Highly placed sources at the Attorney General’s Office could not confirm that the monk had indeed been assaulted.

If there was convoluted justification of last Sunday’s violence and if justification spurred further violence the blame falls squarely on the IGP for making the following (irresponsible) statement: ‘Three Muslims in a trishaw assaulted the driver and the Buddhist monk. The Buddhist monk was in hospital receiving treatment for two days and then discharged.  He was to be taken to the temple in a procession when the incident occurred.’

The IGP offered speculation as fact. That’s incompetent and irresponsible. Yesterday the Muslim-owned ‘No Limit’ outlet in Panadura was torched.  While it is not clear how it all happened, it is clear that the sequence of events prompt people to connect dots and reach conclusion, wrong though they may be.  Tinkering with the truth and lying outright causes friction, throw out sparks and cause infernos that are hard to put out.

It is wrong to blame it all on one person, but it is equally wrong not to point out those who provided fuel and matchstick, tossed in extra firewood and refused to douse it even though they had all the water necessary to do the job.  We have to take issue with the IGP.  He must resign forthwith.

        Ms is appointed to do so. If he fails to do the job in compliance with Rajapakse guidlines… he will be in danger. But enough is enough. Do we need to read this kind of article coming from Rajapakshe supportive journalists ? Beating around the bush has been his nature – whatever awards have been earned by him. If a guy with a spine cant call a spade a spade – how can he be a people#s friendly journalist of the nation ?Journalists of unbiased sorta can all devious programs of Raja and clans transmogrify within hours… unfortunately that seems to be beyond their undrestanding.

      Through the Grapewine…

      Everything ready for Gnanassara’s melodramatic arrest : only Gota must give the date

      “During the Cabinet media briefing that same day at noon , when the media questioned , why the BBS leaders were not arrested when they were inciting the people to racial violence and mayhem , even before at various places like how they provoked them at Alutgama , the IGP gave a most crude and rudely shocking answer : he said, they cannot take action until the damage is done . There ought to be laws to take action against the organization, but that is only after the wrong is committed. What a wonderful answer from the IGP , the highest in the hierarchy of country’s law enforcement Institution ? “

      “A high rung officer of the same police force on the other hand revealed , the IGP is misleading the people on purpose . Under Sri Lanka penal code , unlawful assembly , conspiring or instigating such activities are crimes under section 101 , 113 b , 138, 140, 290, 290 b, 291 b , and 332 , and those laws are already operative. Hence , if the IGP is saying there are no laws to take action against Gnanassara and others who are obviously liable under the aforementioned sections of the penal code , this IGP is not worth his salt and is not deserving of his official post, the same police officer pointed out with regret. “

      “The high rung police officer also pointed out that if Gnanassara is taken into custody on the above charges he cannot be enlarged on bail “.

      “Upon inquiries made by us from a senior attorney at law , he said with a hearty laugh ,if Gnanassara is to be truly arrested even all the criminal charges mentioned in the penal code are not enough, for he is guilty of charges singly and collectively ,even more than all those incorporated in the code.”

      “When the police media spokesman had stated , ‘Sir, this is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate our transparency.’ Gotabaya had replied , ‘ we cannot allow the Thambis to dance as they want. What was done at Alutgama was very good . Now we must do something in a manner that will not incommode our forces.’ (making the arrests). I shall be informing the date. In all probability it will be a Monday or a Wednesday.’ “

      “Keheliya undertook to make the necessary arrangements for the melodramatic display and publicity. They are to be given live coverage over the television channels. But there is an impediment to this , as the police media spokesman had been coordinating with Gnanassara when the Muslims were being attacked and their properties destroyed most ruthlessly and with impunity at Alutgama and Beruwala.”

      Buddhist Sinhalese terrorists have been instigating attacks against the island’s minorities, particularly the Muslims

      Sinhala Buddhist terrorism.

      Minorities in Sri Lanka face growing terrorThe region is deeply engrossed in events around Iraq and the implication of a wider scale sectarian conflict that may spill across several borders. Lost in the quagmire of such a troubling issue is the conflict against minorities, and particularly Muslim minorities, in several countries.

      Malinda is a turncoat. There are enough SB journalists in SL who can be bought to write bullshit against the venerable monks and their followers who are being attacked by the 360 pockets of Jihadists in Sri Lanka regularly (please listen to JHU & Champika Ranawaka press conference to learn what actually happened in Aluthgama and Darga Town). Apparently, 3000 Jihadists were waiting at the Unite lee mola with weapons to attack the Buddhists who were leaving the BBS meeting peacefully as clearly advised by Ven Gnanasara. When they were attacked by the Jihadists as usual the victims who were the Buddhists were remanded but NOT a single Jihadist was arrested.
      As it happened in Myanmar, Thailand, and now Sri Lanka the Jihadists initiate all the violence but they are shown as the victims and the Western World media led blue print propaganda is that Buddhists always attack the babe like innocent Muslims. It seems Malinda has joined this Western media propaganda circus against the Buddhists. Gota and the Rajapassa’s are also worshipping the Saudi & Iranian oil money pouring into their coffers and poor IGP who takes orders from the top not to arrest the culprit Jihadists is made into a scapegoat by vested interests including the highly biased media circus.

      RE: The IGP Must Resign!?

      Before that:

      1, Gotabaya Must resign

      2. The BBS Terrorists must be taken into custody.

      It is well to recall when Ven. Watareka Thero launched his Jathika Bala Sena organization against the BBS terrorists who are exploiting Buddhism to gratify their inborn terrorist blood lust, and to teach the BBS that Lord Buddha never preached racism or terrorism , and that lord Buddha emphasized no living creature should be harmed , the BBS terrorist monks stormed Watareka’s maiden meeting , and the BBS leader Gnanassara attempted to assault Watareka before all while forcing the latter to ask for a public pardon.

      On the 15 th the BBS terrorist monks launched racial violence at Alutgama on Muslims killing 9 persons including a week old infant ; injuring 176 others and committed arson with gay abandon and complete impunity ( believe it or not ! SL’s criminal defense secretary is giving protection openly to these racists ) . The BBS terrorist monks at that juncture defended their marauding and murderous activities on the ground that a Muslim allegedly assaulted a Buddhist monk. it is an irony of ironies it is the same BBS terrorist organization that has launched the terror and horror attack on Ven. Watareka Thero, another Buddhist monk, disgraced him publicly by stripping him nude and abandoned him on the streets.

      Of course , Lord Buddha must be turning cartwheels in his grave unable to bear the damage that is being done to pristine Buddhism preached by him when he was alive . But how our own Buddhist chief incumbents of the Malwatte and Asgiriya chapters while still being alive even before rigor mortis had set in can be silent idle spectators amidst all this violence unable to control these anti Buddhist activities and not uttering a word is something beyond the comprehension of every true Buddhist.

          Read the quote below:

          Either 16 million support those saffron clad thugs or do nothing to stop them. Remember these are same Sinhala/Buddhists who elect the most racists and sustain the most corrupt politicians in power. Government is voted in by majority stupid.

          Please stop being stupid.

      It is sad see Abayas barbaric comment (Cut necks of bad people he suspected/identified and throw their bodies to sea).. How sad it is see so many people thumbs up for this uncivilized comment. In 1971, 88~89, when bad Sinhalese terrorists surfaced, general public S-Buddhists like Abaya approved and perhaps forced democratic gov/police to just kill all suspected Sinhalese (armed or unarmed.. who cares?) and throw to rivers, no law, no judiciary. When Tamils did similar things S_Buddhists just wanted government/police/military to execute them (instance judgement and execution by military and police of unarmed civilians)…
      Nobody wants law/justice in the country, people forced and wanted democratic gov to cut necks of all suspected people, their own brothers and sisters…. Core problem in SL is not MR/Ghota (Premadasa) or S-Buddhist Mahanayakas, these are symptoms, core problem is the mentality of S-Buddhist majority..

    The IGP should not be asked to resign. He is a minion. He is a door mat in khaki for the politicians holding high political office. The biggest of whom is the President. Mahinda Rajapakse should resign from his position as President. As Executive President who holds both the defence and law & order portfolios, he has failed in his job and led this country into further misery, He has not ordered the arrest and prosecution of thug Gnanasara. He has not called for a public explanation from his brother Gotabaya- the defence secretary. He has not called for an explanation from the Major General who has been set up as the camouflage secretary of a dummy ministry of law & order. He should resign NOW.

    Malinda, you have made the wrong call. You are shooting a stool pigeon.

      Dr RN,

      You make a valid point.

      The powers that be in Sri Lanka today are of a different ilk. They have no value systems that they respect. They have no understanding what human rights are. Mahinda Rajapaksa famously stated that the Sri Lankan army conducted the 2009 war with a rifle in one hand and the book of human rights in the other. We all know what horrors transpired during that war and even after that famous MR speech. Basically this hate driven blood thirsty administration and their minions including the IGP do not have a clue what human rights are, or what humane behaviour is, or what the functions are of an independent judiciary and the police force.

    But first the IGP has to have ethics and Class… He is no better than our politicians… Yes he MUST resign. and like u say..IF Azath Sally was taken into custody for hate speech, why NOT galabodaththe the goon? Moreover, regarding the fire at NOLOMIT… the police stated that this could be an electric fault… HELLO…. there are clips of the cctv videos doing its rounds on the internet..showing a few young guys setting up the fire…. all one has to do is search for it…

    How irresponsible of the Spokes-person from the police of Panadura to make such a statement is beyond the thinking of fair minded people.. Seems its a trend adopted from top to bottom from the IGP downwards… Azath Sally lays the fault on the IGP for the Aluthgama scenario, for he had personally visited the IGP and handed over a written statement that IF the BBS meeting in Aluthgama was not stopped… there would be mayhem.. he shows a copy of the letter he had handed over to the IGP along with the receipt of a complaint he had made at the police.

    Malinda Seneviratne –

    RE: The IGP Must Resign!- Why?

    “Most importantly, why did the Inspector General of Police N.K. Ilangakoon state that a Buddhist monk had been assaulted when he had no evidence to support the claim? The Judicial Medical Officer’s report which would have either proven or refuted the said monk’s claim (as of Friday) has not been issued. Highly placed sources at the Attorney General’s Office could not confirm that the monk had indeed been assaulted”

    Why lie? What is the need to lie?

    1. The problem is that these Sinhala “Buddhists”, and the State and Mara have been making so many lies, both small and big, for so long, they are unable to distinguish between a small lie and a big lie and the repercussions of the lie. So in order to sort out the lies, the chain of events need to be sorted out with factual evidence, instead of he said-she said arguments.

    This is what I grape from the grape wine, the actual events need to be confirmed with more independent eye witness news.

    2. There was an altercation between a three wheeler owned by two Muslim youth and the driver of the van the Monk from Kanda Vihara was travelling. It was not clear if it was related to a parking or accident or a verbal exchange that resulted in the exchange of blows between the drive rand the two or 3 Muslim youth.

    2, However, even though the driver and the Monk were hospitalized, apparently there was no medical evidence for any injuries on the Monk. so what is the truth? Did the Monk lie? did the driver lie?

    3. There are rumors that the Monk attached to the Kanda Vihara, Alutgama,is an agent of BBS, though not a member, and may have participated in a False Flag Operation, set up for a rally on Sunday, with the President out in Bolivia. Was it a random traffic altercation, or a well planned operation to come up with a reason for the rally on Sunday the 15th and the BBS terrorism later on?

    Circumstantial evidence and the chain of events appear to show that it was planned ahead, well ahead of June 12th.

    Did the IGP have complicity?
    Was Gotabaya Rajapaksa behind it?
    Was is exclusively BBS? What role do the police play>
    Why were they spectators and assisters?

    4. Rumors were spread saying that a Monk was killed by Muslims. So clearly, this was planned. Besides, the BBS and Gotanaya Rajsapaksa, who knew of the plan?

    5. “It was not, let us repeat, not a peaceful procession”

    Yes it was not a peaceful procession. They were looking for trouble.

    Initial Attack by BBS and other Terrorists looking for a fight in Aluthgama.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ylqbhDDx6w

    6.. One can see the BBS thugs were protected by police and the people in the procession stated firing or the police stated firing.

    7. “If there was convoluted justification of last Sunday’s violence and if justification spurred further violence the blame falls squarely on the IGP for making the following (irresponsible) statement: ‘Three Muslims in a trishaw assaulted the driver and the Buddhist monk. The Buddhist monk was in hospital receiving treatment for two days and then discharged. He was to be taken to the temple in a procession when the incident occurred.’”

    Malinda Seneviratne – are you trying to whitewash the BBS and Gotabaya Rajapaksa? Are you a soft-shill for the Maras.

    8. So, who are the suspects?

    a) Gotabaya Rajapaksa
    b) BBS and its members and riot participants
    c) Police
    d) Special police
    e) Monk of Kanda Vihara. Authgama
    f) The Driver
    g) The three Muslim Youth
    h) The Editors of Silumina for Lying
    g) The Editors of Daily Mirror for lying

    h) The Editors of Daily News.

        Thanks for your compliment.

        However, do not forget that what we we see here are the symptoms and aftereffects of the lies and imaginations of Monk Mahanama’s Mahawansa lies, written 1,500 years ago, to enhance the lie that Para-Sinhala following Para-Buddhism were the the first inhabitants in the land of Native Vedda.

    Oh Malinda! Do you still feel under obligation for accepting that lap top. For how long more are you going to be suckling that top?

    Why is it that you are so unwilling to state your own most reasonable conclusion that the IGP is under “ORDERS” from Gotabaya to say what he is under orders to say?

    There is a new theory doing the internet rounds. Google, and you will find. Gota is going to finance some Afghans to come to Sri Lanka and engage in some business activities. Then Gota’s pal Bebadu Sara will say the Taliban are now in Sri Lanka attacking the Buddhists, after orchestrating some dramas which require the killing of some innocent Buddhist children and pregnant women.

    Soon thereafter, Gota with Bebadu Sara will arrange to assassinate the Buruwa Mahinda and the his apparent Namal Sweet Lips. After that he will usurp power in concert with the Military and install himself the Supreme Leader like in North Korea.

    Gota will then as a US Citizen turn over free of charge to the US Government all of Sri Lanka without conditions attached. It is believed US will turn Trinco into a US base from whence they will dominate the whole of South East Asia. The US will say thank you to Gota and pin a medal of honour on his tunic for his great service to the USA as a US citizen. He will also receive money and a new lease of life free of the old baggage of war crimes accusations.

    PS: It is reliably learnt that Gandasara will convert to Born Again Christian.

    Heh heh… Why should the IGP resign?

    “Why did the Police not prevent the BBS rally despite many pleas to do so from many quarters”

    But, the BBS Boss says it was NOT a BBS rally or meeting, but the speeches were made in a meetng that was organised by someone else.

    Also, Sri Lanka has informed the UNHRC that violence was instigated by several Muslims, not BBS. A Buddhist monk was assaulted by three Muslim youth, they were produced before the Magistrate and remanded, the monk made a statement to the Police, then stones were thrown at the monk and some other monks and lay persons as they were passing the Mosque in Dharga Town, then violence erupted and spread to Beruwala.

    Heh… heh… what is the problem?

    “All Sri Lankan people enjoy freedom of religion, which is a constitutionally guaranteed right. The four major religions have harmoniously co-existed in the Island for centuries”, said Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations in Geneva, Manisha Gunasekera.

    At last Malinda you are coming to your senses. But what are you really trying to do? Protect the Rajapakses’? YOu should not have stopped at requesting the resignation of IGP, you were 100% right in that. But, you should also ask for the resignation of the God Father of Balu Bala Sena, Gothabaya Rajapakse’s resignation.

    At last Malinda is speaking some sense.

    For once I understand Malinda’s sentiments in asking the spineless IGP to resign.

    But the gutless Illangakone is only a fraction of the malaise that inflicts Sri Lanka as a whole. The ruthless mass murderers who rule the country like Mafia mobsters, the unapologetic drug barons who lead provincial councils, the wholehearted support of the masses for the new form of militant Buddhism and finally the men and women who voted this terrible government to power are all equally reprehensible.

    Is it a coincidence that arch rivals Malinda S and Dayan J both write a very sensible/narrative of events/article, only to fall short on their conclusion to blame who the true architects of this project were, namely the brothers(rest are all actors hired by them).

    I don’t think both(Malinda and Dayan) are not too far from rejecting their pay masters and entering the sensible world.

    Until then we have to forgive them and provide moral support, in the hope that this newly found common sense will prevail.

    Yes, it’s the right call to ask the IGP to resign. His failure to ban the BBS rally, his instructions to the STF to protect the procession only, his false statement about a monk being assaulted are good enough to call for his resignation. Malinda has very logically explained the IGPs direct culpability. It may be in order to ask the President to remove him, if he doesn’t resign. But before that, there should be more voices asking the IGP’s resignation.

    Ha, Ha what a joke!. Lets make the IGP the scape goat, so the government and its lackeys can show that action was taken. And even Malinda’s job will be safe!!

    You people don’t understand anything. As a Lap Top Journalist he cannot directly say President Must Resign. Instead he said indirectly “The IGP Must Resign” because everybody knows IGP is just a puppet and acting upon Grease Piya’s and President’s orders.

      Who else should resgin if not minister of defence, minister of finance in a critical situation where everything has gone to that appalling levels due to the lack of their proper and promt actions. For them.. once criminals … have no hearts to see human losses be theem limited to hand ful or thousands. This nature though stoped the war, but against all humanity. For me, though I am sinhalaya, this man should be punished to the very same manner as Sadam and Gadafi were subjected. Then only we can make our mind up for a right state by bringing all lawful mechanisms reesablishing them.

    IGP read like a parrot the following script written by the Rajapaksas.

    ‘Three Muslims in a trishaw assaulted the driver and the Buddhist monk. The Buddhist monk was in hospital receiving treatment for two days and then discharged. He was to be taken to the temple in a procession when the incident occurred.’

    IGP was embarrassed and looked helpless with unethical orders coming from the top.

    Mahinda Rajapaksa who has behaved during the last cabinet meeting as if he is the president of only the Sinhalese, also should resign forthwith. He is not fit to be a statesman.

    I would have endorsed Malinda’s view if the IGP was able to run the Police in line with law and order enforcement WITHOUT POLITICAL DIRECTION.THAT IT IS NOT SO IS NO SECRET.Malinda is an opportunist.+
    That politicians ran the service and the IGP and his men had do the bidding with some stooges who are on extension is A FACT.Then why try to hang the IGP
    This is a complex issue where all those who ruled before MR is also culpable and have to answer as all allowed grass to grow under their feet.That the Muslims were working to a set plan was manifestly clear when one looks at what is happening in the world.I was amazed when watching an interview with an Islamist in Brussels when he had the gumption to say IN TWENTY YEARS BELGIUM WILL NOT HAVE YOUR LAWS IT WILL BE THE SHARIA LAW.
    The BBS is a necessary instrument but the way they set about things was all wrong.The U tube that is now seen by all in many parts of the world will without hesitation say that the man in robes conducted himself not as a monk but a thrada thug who incited.So if the laws of the land are not applied selectively as was done to Sarath Fonseka and the CJ he should be arrested.It will not happen and even so it will be for a few days sanitised and released.
    IT IS SAID THAT THERE ARE NEARLY 700 MOSQUES IN AUSTRALIA AND NEARLY 2000 IN ENGLAND AND OVER 7000 IN EUROPE.IN NONE OF THESE COUNTRIES DO THEY ALLOW THE MULLAH TO SCREAM THROUGH A SYSTEM AND IRRITATE OTHER CITIZENS,THEN WHY SHOULD THEY DO SO IN SRI LANKA.
    MUSLIMS ALSO MUST learn to LIVE WITHOUT BEING A NUISANCE TO OTHERS.
    STATISTICS REVEAL SINCE THEY BREED LIKE FLIES AND THE NUMBERS HAVE INCREASED PHENOMINONALLY OVER A DECADE.
    THE CRYING NEED OF THE HOUR IS RESTORATION OF THE RULE OF LAW AND FOR ALL TO BE EQUAL BEFORE THE LAW.

    Who is going to bell the cat? and Who is the Cat? Is it the IGP? What a MOCKERY after days of dragging the issue. This IGP Illangakoon’s nephew is currently shielded by him after he is wanted for questioning for raping an underage girl along with Minister Tissa Karalliyadde’s catcher Shakespeare. This nephew of the IGP had been the SINGER outlet Manager at Madawachchiya and is missing for the last month from work. I am not surprised if the IGP is promised a Diplomatic post if he takes the blame and resign to save face for MARA like in other instances as before IGP Mahinda Balasuriya and the Army Officer who was involved in the killing of civilians at Rathupaswela. What a Country? and What a Sinhala Buddhist Nation? It is a Damn Shame to be a Sri Lankan. I prefer to call myself a Ceylonese.

    Now, where is that Humbug ‘Off The Cuff’ who post loads of rubbish in this Web, claiming that he cite with authority? My Foot! Read the above

    ‘Most importantly, why did the Inspector General of Police N.K. Ilangakoon state that a Buddhist monk had been assaulted when he had no evidence to support the claim? The Judicial Medical Officer’s report which would have either proven or refuted the said monk’s claim (as of Friday) has not been issued. Highly placed sources at the Attorney General’s Office could not confirm that the monk had indeed been assaulted.

    Now this OTC are the type of defenders of this Regime and this so called Sinhala Buddhists. What a set of Hypocrites and Humbugs?

      Dear Gamini,

      Re “Now, where is that Humbug ‘Off The Cuff’ who post loads of rubbish in this Web, claiming that he cite with authority? My Foot! Read the above”

      Your foot is Lame, ha ha haa!

      I provide evidence for what I write. You spin fairy tales!

      You knew exactly where to find me.
      Don’t HUMBUG looking for me in the wrong place!

      You could have found me at the place you abandoned the previous discussion, ha ha haa!

      https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/sri-lankan-muslims-at-the-cross-roads-iv-after-aluthgamaberuwela/comment-page-1/#comment-1358037

      Though you claim “I hail from the few Aristocracy remaining in this country,” You ran away from a similar discussion under Izeth Husains article referenced above.

      I am also currently available in the discussion under Dr Laksiri’s article here, https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/violence-against-muslims-and-the-character-of-the-bbs/

      What an ARISTOCRATIC COWARD you are to criticise me on a web page that I have not been participating in!

      Kind Regards
      OTC

      I hate to say you are making big mistake.

      OTC will drag you down to his level, beat you with his lies and half truth, also with his plagiarised evidence which is littered with commission and omissions, and ultimately he will bore you to death.

      We in this forum don’t want to lose your immense contributions.

      Under these circumstances one has to run for cover.

        Dear Tamil Separatist in a Veddha Mask,

        The Prawn has Shit in its Head and Tries to pose as a Truthful person!

        Nowhere have you ever been able to prove that I have lied. But I have proved that you are a Liar many a time.

        This is what you wrote without any shame.
        Please deny it if you can.

        On May 25, 2014 at 2:16 pm, “Native Veddha” addressing a comment to Manoharan, wrote “You have great sense of History. I envy you…..The stupid Tamils suffered last time when IPKF arrived because the Sri Lankan armed forces who were supposed to defend this island were found hiding behind their women folks and VP’s fat bottom”

        https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/dear-modi-sri-lankas-aggressive-agenda-to-your-notice/

        Here are the Facts.

        1. The Indian Parippu drop on Jaffna (operation Poomalai) intimidated the Govt of Sri Lanka to end an operation that would have either killed or captured Prabahkaran.

        2. Subsequent to the Parippu drop the SL govt was forced to sign the Indo Lanka Peace accord.

        3. The IPKF was established under the Indo Lanka Peace Accord.

        4. The SL Forces was confined to Barracks under the terms of the same Peace Accord.

        Hence it was IMPOSSIBLE for the SL Forces to confront the IPKF.

        But this idiotic Tamil, masquerading as a Veddha, is writing his usual Fiction. A Prawn with shit in its head!

        Kind Regards,
        OTC

    Azath Salley was arrested detained for hate speech …..but Gnanasara continues…
    IGP has said that a Buddhist monk had been assaulted….but it is not the truth..
    The STF did not take appropriate action …..because they did not get orders from Bolivia…!!!
    The President says that thers is a Western Conspiracy to destabilize the Country..( they think the Govt is Country )
    Gnanasara says he would side with the Western Countries….than with Muslim Countries..IF he is the President..

    See the Confusion…..

    Now Malinda says
    IGP MUST RESIGN….BUT GNANASARA SHOULD NOT BE ARRESTED AND DETAINED…

    Because it is the IGP who has ensured the arson…looting…murder by the Patriots….

    IT NOTHING BUT THE GOVT THAT IS BEHIND THE BBS….
