The London Affair: The Tiger Mob Vs. Brigadier Priyanka Fernando

By Dayan Jayatilleka

Dr. Dayan Jayatilleka

Our nation–Tamil Eelam! “Our leader–Prabhakaran!” shrieked the demonstrators brandishing Tiger flags outside the Sri Lankan High Commission in London on the 70th Independence Day of our country. Defense Attaché, Brigadier Priyanka Fernando, can be seen on video, watching the demonstration.

What does the Brigadier see? The Tiger flag, with the crossed rifle-butts and the stylized bullets. The flag of the terrorist enemy that he fought, and was trained to fight. He reacts, not by hurling abuse or throwing something, but by making a gesture. It was gesture with two moves. He taps his shoulder patch, showing that he belonged to the Sri Lankan military. Then he makes a lethal fighting gesture, but only a gesture.

His reaction was utterly unacceptable as a diplomatic officer. He should have been reprimanded by his High Commissioner. Perhaps even recalled for consultations. But he should not have been immediately suspended and the announcement of the suspension posted on the Sri Lankan Foreign Ministry’s website. 

The Foreign Ministry has just rewarded those who demonstrated with Tiger flags, i.e. the pro-Tiger, if not LTTE mob, outside our High Commission, by suspending the military officer. The Foreign Ministry statement has not a single word of remonstration about the Tiger demonstrators, nor a word of understanding about the extenuating circumstances triggering the emotional response of the officer.    

Would a mob of demonstrators chanting al Qaeda or ISIS/ISIL slogans and brandishing al Qaeda or ISIS/ISIL banners chanting slogans glorifying Osama bin Laden as their leader, be allowed outside a US Embassy if on the 4th of July? ? In the very unlikely event that such a grotesque exhibition of fanaticism is allowed by the Metropolitan Police, and a member of the Embassy staff had reacted in disgust with a forceful gesture, would he have been immediately suspended and the announcement posted on the US State Department website?

What if, nine years after the US Civil War, a Union (Northern) officer stepped out of a US embassy in Paris or London and was confronted on the Fourth of July by demonstrators waving Confederate flags?

What if nine years after WW2, an Allied officer—US, UK, Soviet or French—were confronted by demonstrators with Nazi flags outside their embassies, waving the Swastika and thrusting their arms out in the familiar Seig Heil fascist salute to Hitler in their faces with complete impunity? There would doubtless have been an incident far more violent than a gesture of lethality.

The Sri Lankan Foreign Ministry is not meant to stand with the Sinhalese against the Tamils or vice versa. But it is certainly meant to stand with the Sri Lankan state against the Tigers. Without Tiger banners, a Tamil demonstrator against the government or even the Sri Lankan state, is a legitimate demonstrator who happens to be a Tamil. But a Tamil demonstrator who chooses to brandish a Tiger flag and chant Prabhakaran’s name is a fascist, a separatist and a supporter of terrorism.

This incident was not about Sinhalese and Tamils. Brigadier Fernando was not making a racist i.e. an anti-Tamil gesture. He was making an anti-Tiger gesture: a violent gesture towards a monstrously violent movement.

The Sri Lankan Foreign Ministry cannot be a neutral umpire between a Sri Lankan military officer and such fascists—and still less can it punish the military officer while not lodging a protest with the British government about the character of the demonstration.   

If the Sri Lankan Foreign ministry, a key component of the Sri Lankan State,  reacts with such unseemly lack of restraint and haste against an officer of this country’s military against a mob of fanatical fascist-separatists, especially when that officer has not engaged in an act of harmful violence, then who and what does? Who and what does the Sri Lankan Foreign Ministry stand for, and with?

The biggest indictment of what the UNP of Prime Minister Wickremesinghe has done to our independence and sovereignty in this 70th year as an independent nation was best expressed by our first Prime Minister DS Senanayaka’s grandson Vasantha Senanayaka, speaking on the occasion of the commemoration of FR Senanayaka some weeks ago. He said that speaking as the State Minister of Foreign Affairs, he has reason to believe that this country’s foreign policy is decided upon externally, by foreign powers.

State Minister Vasantha Senanayaka has just been proven right. Not only did we make the unprecedented gesture of having as the chief guest on our 70th Independence day celebrations, members of the British Royalty, which oppressed us and from which we emancipated ourselves 70 years ago, we have just followed it up, days later, by persecuting an officer of our armed forces who fought to liberate us all from terrorism and to reunify our state and whose emotional gesture against a fascist enemy in defense of his country’s self-respect warrants reprimand but not arbitrary punishment.

Who in the Foreign Ministry or outside it decided to promptly suspend Brigadier Priyankara Fernando? Whose interests does it represent?

The Foreign Ministry has just taken sides—the side of the Tiger demonstrators, and against the Sri Lankan military officer. We too must takes sides, but the right one. Do we agree with the Ministry that the military officer’s gesture was worse than that of the hostile Tiger mob? Or do we think, as I do, that the Brigadier’s response to the Tiger provocation should be viewed, though not with approval, but with some understanding and sensitivity on our part?  On which side do we stand?

President Sirisena has indicated a reshuffle in the aftermath of February 10th. He must either take the Foreign Ministry away from the UNP and vest it in the SLFP (perhaps in himself) or give it to a patriotic UNP gentleman such as State Minister Vasantha Senanayaka. For our part, I would say that Brigadier Fernando’s understandable if misplaced gesture is far better put into effect with a ballot paper on February 10th than with a finger. If we do our duty, then members of the armed forces would not feel the need to make such intemperate gestures.

      It is a ruthless threat by a senior military officer of Sri Lanka (defense attaché to UK) to the British residents/citizens. These Tamils are British passport holders and Briton has allowed them to protest (as long as it is non-violent). Such threatening (throat-cutting) gestures are sometimes considered as criminal offence in the West. It can have very serious diplomatic repercussions if this fool is not withdrawn immediately. The president may be playing to the gallery to get some cheap Sinhala votes by revoking his suspension without knowing the consequences.
      It is pointless talking about Dayan. The readers have said enough.

        Excerpt from JDS

        Shelling Hospitals

        Brigadier Fernando described as a “battle hardened” soldier, played a key role in a military operation alleged of shelling the Mullaitivu hospital in northeastern Sri Lanka. He was commanding a battalion under the 59th division of the Sri Lankan army in 2008 when it launched an offensive against the Tamil Tigers in the north.

        During this period the 59 Division was the most nearby fighting force to Mullaitivu where the UN confirmed the hospital came under repeated shell attack from government forces.

        ITJP and JDS is requesting vetting authorities to ask him to clarify what his role, if any, was in those attacks on hospitals, which if proven in a court of law could amount to war crimes

      NV,

      This Dayan the D….. is already intoxicated with racism why buy him another drink, it will be a waste of someone else’s pleasure drink.Please don’t spend for a drink on him, it’s an absolute waste.

      They say with friends like these who needs enemies. These MARA mentality brigadiers should be stripped naked and made to walk along the road, to be garlanded by mental walking disasters, like MARA and Dayan the D…..

      This murderous gesture of this criminal brigadier virtually eroded any respect that may have left in the SL Army and shows to the world what a pathetic criminal mind set we have in some of our brigadiers and unfortunately tarnished the image of SL Army, as a whole.

      What more, we have some i…..s like Dayan the D….. and racist elements who view this murderous gesture as a heroic effort and applaud it in Social Media. To what low have we scooped as a Nation. It’s a crying shame to our country.

    DJ – we do not need sophisticated analysis about the gesture of Brig. PF – The demonstrators were the guys who funded all the killings of LTTE goons for over three decades – Brig. PF showed them what they really deserve – if the demonstrators have the freedom to say what they were shouting against his country – then Brig. PF also should have the freedom to show these idiots what he really feels about them – may be we can have few Buddhist monks in these embassies to preach bana to these supporters of killers – sincerely hope, our backbone less Gov. will not punish PF for showing his true feelings – without caring being diplomatically correct – Phooo!!!

    Your reasoning/logic/excuses are irrelevant Dr DJ. The behaviour of the Defence Attaché was very, very unprofessional. He could have simply pointed at the Sri Lankan flag on his shirt and given a thumbs-up (to suggest the SL Armed forces won) instead of making a beheading gesture. This gesture was very creepy by the way. Gave me chills seeing how at ease he was making the gesture. His behaviour only reinforces the allegations as well as the broader suspicions against the SL armed forces.

      I agree. That was an arrogant act for a man wearing the uniform of our country. He may be a war criminal, and no one should shield him, if he is responsible for war crimes. It is disappointing that the Sri Lankan government keeps shielding those who have slaughtered innocent civilians, and guilty of war crimes. We are better than the LTTE, and should not stoop to such brutal crimes against civilians.

      Those who hold that despicable LTTE flag, should realize that they only offend people in Sri Lanka, who have suffered during the war, and that no one will listen to their point of view, if they still carry that flag.
      I am sure many Tamils have valid points, especially when it comes to missing loved ones, but holding that flag will not help.

    There are extremists on either side. Most of theTamils in SL wants a peaceful prosperous and a multi ethnic/religious country where citizens are recognised as Sri Lankans
    Discrimination against the Tamils by GoSL over the last 70 years has resulted in the creation of LTTE etc
    The GoSL needs to act more statemanly to ban verbal violence

    Perhaps DJ would like him to be awarded the VSV for facing hostile forces in London? Just heard that my3 has revoked the suspension. Shocking! Going by recent experience it seems best to do the opposite of the desired outcome so that the President can be relied to revoke as he did with banning women from being sold alcohol.

    He taps his shoulder patch, showing that he belonged to the Sri Lankan military. Then he makes a lethal fighting gesture, but only a gesture.
    Yes, exactly that is why he has to be punished. 1). He reminded Tamils protestors, who he is. That the world most notorious army which killed 150,000 innocents in Mullaithivu – Wanni area. 2). Then he said same war crime will be repeated, against Tamils. His gestures are accepting war crimes of Rapist Army and telling they are prepared to do it again. It needs serious attention from IC.
    The Foreign Ministry has just rewarded those who demonstrated with Tiger flags, i.e. the pro-Tiger, if not LTTE mob, outside our High Commission, by suspending the military officer.
    Under the Sinhala Jury Only Verdict, any investigation on atrocities committed against Tamil Citizen is rewarding Tamils. This is an attitude of Lankawe ex diplomat. This is not acceptable.
    Would a mob of demonstrators chanting al Qaeda or ISIS/ISIL slogans and brandishing al Qaeda or ISIS/ISIL banners chanting slogans glorifying Osama bin Laden as their leader, be allowed outside a US Embassy if on the 4th of July? European court has cleared that Tamils (LTTE)are not terrorist. Further, it was only Rapist Army treated Tamils like the ISIS, when they captured Yazidi women and children.
    What if nine years after WW2, an Allied officer
    Yes Nazis were accused of war crime by UN the same way UNHRC has accused Rapist Army of war crime. Sheepish talker Thero does not know which side he stands.

    The Sri Lankan Foreign Ministry cannot be a neutral umpire between a Sri Lankan military officer and such fascists
    Yes, accepted. That is why London Police, a neutral party, has to take action on this. Diplomatic immunity does not mean the Rapist Army who justifies the war crime it committed on its land can do the same thing on the foreign land too. In such circumstances, the immunity mask is torn off and the criminal is recognized by host country under the Geneva Protocol.
    He said that speaking as the State Minister of Foreign Affairs, he has reason to believe that this country’s foreign policy is decided upon externally, by foreign powers. Yes that is correct. By squeezing the necks of the journalists who protested in Hangbangtota Harbor, and immediately establishing a Navy camp in that port, Ranil demonstrated that Lankawe Foreign Policy is decided in China. This is how, during Old Royals’ time, the Yuan money was spent on American PR firms to change the American policy toward Lankawe. Yes it is decided in China and Vasantha is correct.

    State Minister Vasantha Senanayaka has just been proven right. Not only did we make the unprecedented gesture of having as the chief guest on our 70th Independence day celebrations, members of the British Royalty, which oppressed us and from which we emancipated ourselves 70 years ago, we have just followed it up, days later, by persecuting an officer of our armed forces who fought to liberate us all from terrorism and to reunify our state and whose emotional gesture against a fascist enemy in defense of his country’s self-respect warrants reprimand but not arbitrary punishment.

    This forgoing paragraph is drafted by an ex diplomat, who was posted in foreign lands to attend Lankawe interests. Lankawe is a country given freedom without fighting against British Empire. Now, this guy is apparently calling to retaliate and revenge on British soil for the past Colonization and for missing not fought out in Lankawe soil. Otherwise there is no reason why he is connecting and explaining the misbehaviors of a diplomat with the past colonization.

    the Brigadier’s response to the Tiger provocation should be viewed, though not with approval, but with some understanding and sensitivity on our part? On which side do we stand? From 1956, in Lankawe Tamils’ peaceful protests are interpreted as terrorism and including Naganathan and Vanniasingham were tortured by police brutality and sent to hospitals. This is how UN resolution 1373 is misinterpreted and Democratic Diasporic organizations are banned by Lankawe, without UN consent. Time to act for IC on barbaric Lankawe’ war crimes and suspense it membership with UN.

    He must either take the Foreign Ministry away from the UNP and vest it in the SLFP (perhaps in himself) or give it to a patriotic UNP gentleman such as State Minister Vasantha Senanayaka. Whatever it could be, we are not in Lankawe governmental administration. Our interest is limited with Tamil Eelam. But, it is our believe that Vasantha Senenake is not a naïve back washer to Old Royals just like this low grade Nazi souls. This tick is not leaving the cow even after the cow’s complete death.
    There are indications that the party-less Old Royals are going to be wiped out by UNP out of Lankawe political scene after LG election.

    We have to thank Mangala’s Boys in the Foreign Ministry for bending over so quickly, to not only Miliband’s Labor Boy MPS but also to the LTTE Mob lead by Managala’s best Bud Suren Surendran.
    The Brigadier is a selfless Soldier.
    Unlike some of the present Army Commanders and the ex Field Marshall who have forgotten the supreme sacrifices of these brave Sons of the Land, this Commander hasn’t forgotten what the Diaspora did and still doing to resurrect Mr Pirahaparan.
    Priyantha Fernando is so popular and even looks like potential future PM or President material .

      Neverthless he is an alleged war criminal.

      “Unlike some of the present Army Commanders and the ex Field Marshall who have forgotten the supreme sacrifices of these brave Sons of the Land, this Commander hasn’t forgotten what the Diaspora did and still doing to resurrect Mr Pirahaparan.”

        Native Mate,
        Were you the one shouting “Give us the Elaam and our Pirahaparan”
        What do you think of poor Sampathar?.
        He made a desperate plea, even as late as yesterday asking our great majority of inhabitants to vote for Dr Ranil and Baniyan Sira in that order ,so that Sampathar can have have his Vellala Elaam before the Yahapalanaya ends.
        Now your mate Suren has stirred the pot, using his LTTE rent a Mob in East London.
        Just imagine if Suren Surendran is allowed to bring in those to our Motherland with that USD 4 Billion which your mate Mangalan promised but not delivered?.
        Sira taking over the Finances after Feb 10 is not enough, although it is a bit better than Mangalan still holding the Finance Portfolio by himself and Dr Ranil….
        I only hope and pray that there a few more Army Boys like Brigadier Priyantha, to give our long suffering Dalits who are the great majorit, the Leadership to get rid of all those GREEN, BLUE, YELLOW and RED crooked and corrupt Politikkas..
        BTW ,Where is your idol the Vellala Kid Abraham nowadays….

    Next time when you have tea with Queen, remind her the LTTE flags!

    It is great Mahinda took them to Sooriyaweva and gave them boiled mayyokka! Should have been given punnaka!

    Hypocrites don’t deserve anything else!

    I blame High commissioner , What is the need for him to bring his military attaché to witness the LTTE mob? Why anyone had to do it apart from getting away with the usual work!

    The whole incident is a perfect example of the diplomatic service of the country, Appointed by the party for the party!

    It is sad that the Brigadier should behave in this manner for the whole world to see. This guy cannot think beyond his nose and he has confirmed to the world what the Tamil Diaspora have been shouting about. and that is the killing of innocent Tamils.
    This will only complicate matters at the next UN sessions.
    As for DJ this guy like the Brigadier has no common sense and I just cannot understand as to why this fool is being tolerated on News first.
    I agree with the writings of K Anaga

    What do you expect from a man (Dayan) who wants to hand over the country to the man (Gota) who used white van to abduct & murder a number of Sinhala, Tamil & Muslim journalists, human rights activists & politicians? He is thirsty of blood.

    If a group was waving theNazi Swathika flag in front of the Israel Embassy would the British Police have allowed that? Obviously not. Thanks Dayan for this write up.
