Threat To National Security

By Gotabaya Rajapaksa

Gotabaya Rajapaksa

Gotabaya Rajapaksa

I refer to recent media articles about the Report issued by the Counter Terrorism Bureau of the United States of America. This Report notes that the LTTE’s financial network of support continued to operate throughout 2014, and that 13 of its cadres had been arrested last year in Malaysia.

The fact that the LTTE’s international network and its sympathisers remain active even after the war, has been noted by me on many previous occasions. They remain committed to the LTTE’s cause and constantly seek ways to resume the struggle for a separate state.

Just over one year ago, Intelligence Agencies uncovered a covert LTTE group that was trying to restart violence in the country. Investigations on this group led to a search operation during which three senior LTTE cadres were killed in a shootout. These cadres included a senior intelligence operative of the LTTE and a member of its Air Wing. Their objective was to reorganize the LTTE’s activities in Sri Lanka.

It is disappointing to note that many parties have actively tried to downplay the continued threat posed by the LTTE for various reasons, including political ones. Further, because no major attacks by the LTTE have taken place after 2009, there is a widespread public perception that the LTTE no longer poses a threat to this country. The truth, however, is very different.

It is only because the previous Government maintained utmost vigilance that all attempts by the LTTE to resume violent activities were foiled. While the Government did all it could to ensure the benefits of peace flowed to the people, a very high standard of security was constantly maintained. Intelligence agencies were greatly strengthened, and although a lot of land in the North and East was returned to the public, the military maintained camps in all vital strategic locations. This was essential to prevent the return of the LTTE.

Sadly, I have been informed that the present Government has begun to reduce the number of military camps in the North and East, and has even dismantled some that are in extremely critical locations. This is a development that can have very disturbing consequences in the future by giving the LTTE a strategic advantage if it tries to actively reorganize.

It is my sincere hope that the President and the present Government of Sri Lanka will give utmost consideration to national security, and act with more awareness about this threat. This will be vital if we are to be sure that our nation, which has already been through so much suffering, will never suffer the cruel ravages of war again.

      Gota is playing the same old DANGEROUS game of fanning the flames of anti-Tamil RACISM. He is pretending to be Sri Lanka’s savior and Sinhala Patriot.
      This is the sinister Rajapaksa plot to DIVIDE, DISTRACT and return the Mahinda Jarapassa regime to RULE and LOOT Sri Lanka. We must be very careful of this Jarapassa strategy to seize power by DIVIDING and DISTRACTING people by pretending that the LTTE is alive and well. Fanning the flames of a NEW ETHNIC and RELIGIOUS CONFLICT is the dangerous game that the Rajapaksa brothers are playing because they want desperately to come back to power..

      The Rajapaksa/ Jarapassa strategy is to win the Sinhala vote by spreading anti-minority (Tamil and Muslim) sentiments via the BBS and the rhetoric of that the Tamil Tiger alive and well.

        Don, before open your bad mouth, why dont you go through US’s report please. Otherwise you just showcase your stupidity and the flippancy to public. You may get more “likes” from the like-minded lunatics for your silly comments but a decent reader or a balanced minded reader would not endorse you I am sure.

        Dead on Don – Gota is pretending that the LTTE was never defeated and put in the dustbin of history now!

        Gota is like the woman who had hidden heroin in her bra that was arrested at the Kalutara Bodhiya.. polluting Buddhism in Sri Lanka while spreading racism wrapped in the Buddhist flag and doing Bodhi Pujas.

        Buddhist prelates should stop politicians polluting Buddhism in Sri Lanka, and refuse to meet with politicians – rather than take expensive gifts from them!

    These heinous crimes in the North are the first steps externally initiated/organised as a part of the greater plan of external forces (UK, USA, LTTE Diaspora, India, Norway) to establish a separate government in the North.
    The current talks held in UK by these external forces with the Sri Lankan government Minister Mangala Samaraweera? is ample proof of their intention to divide the Nation of Sri Lanka to give the Tamil minority community a greater part of Sri Lanka for a separate Tamil government totally independent of the Central government.
    These heinous crimes will increase and will be used as a vital point to demonstrate that the Sri Lankan forces are incapable or unable to protect the people of the North, irrespective of the fact or ignoring that the Yahapalanaye government under the leadership of Sirisena and Ranil have restricted the army to their barracks.
    These external forces will then request or demand from Sirisena/Ranil government for the withdrawal of the Sri Lankan forces – the army, navy, airforce and Police from the North. Sirisena and Ranil the puppet government of these external forces will eventually exceed to their demands without consulting the people of Sri Lanka.

    It will be the greatest betrayal of the Sinhela Nation by the present Sri Lankan government traitors primarily Sirisena and Ranil inclining to hand over the Sinhela sovereign Nation to the ‘divide and rule’ policy of the colonial powers to please the minority Tamils (British quislings) who have been invading Sri Lanka off and on for many centuries due mainly to the disunity of the Sinhela people divided by religion, politics and jealousy for each other.

    Once the united Tamils achieve this first step the next step is to form a Tamil security forces in the North namely Tamil Army, Navy, Airforce and Police. Finally, demanding and achieving land, power and water powers.
    Sri Lankans (Sinhalese/Tamils/Muslims) who love your country please UNITE or you will lose everything leaving nothing for yourself, for your children and for the future generations but most importantly you will lose your country.
    Tamils have a country – Tamil Nadu. Sinhala has only Sri Lanka no where else to go unless you wish to be a refugee in Tamil Nadu.
    Sri Lankans who trushould wake up to change the Situation and regain the Sri Lanka we lost to Maithripala Sirisena and Ranil Wickramasinghe on the 8th January,2015.
    Vote for Mahinda Rajapakse, Only he can save the Nation with his Great Brother Mr Gotabhaya Rajapakse.

        Why are you including the LTTE diaspora? I am confused. Is there a LTTE diaspora? Even the hard core fighters of the LTTE who claimed asylum in the west has walked away from the LTTE.

        Is the whole Diaspora is LTTE or a segment only. How do you call the non-LTTE Diaspora?

      “Tamils have a country – Tamil Nadu.”

      When I checked the last time Tamilnadu was one state out of 29. Could you let me know when did Tamils carve out a separate country out of India.

      Do the Indians know about it?

      Its strange this important event was not on the Media.

      “Sinhala has only Sri Lanka no where else to go unless you wish to be a refugee in Tamil Nadu.”

      According to Sinhala/Buddhist tradition they believe their ancestors came from Lata land in Venga by Kallathonies.

      According to other evidence Sinhala/Buddhists migrated from South India.

      Genetic studies confirm that Sinhala speaking people are closely related to Tamil Nadu Tamils.

      So your motherland is in Tamil Nadu and/or in Bihar.

      What seems to be the problem?

      “Vote for Mahinda Rajapakse, Only he can save the Nation with his Great Brother Mr Gotabhaya Rajapakse.”

      You are not being sarcastic are you?

        At last somebody is speaking about the Sinhala speaking people and not about the Sinhala Race or Sinhala nation.It is a great advance on the rude brain washing we had undergone from our youth.

        Recorded history indicate that Devanampiyatissa was a “Hindu” until he was converted by Arahath Mahinda.Dutugemunu’s father and in laws carried names that could be identified as being “Tamil” or “Hindu”.

        From that what I could gather is that Sinhala as a language was the result of attempts to spread Buddhism. Which brings us to the conclusion that there was no Sinhala race.

        This is proved by the fact that the Sinhala speaking people and the Tamil speaking people worship the same Gods.Kataragama,Ganadeviyo, kali and many others.The Hindus use a different name to identify them eg Ganadeviyo as Pullayar, Kali as Durga.

        The Jaffna Hindu used to perform the “Pada Yathra” to Kataragama.My first visit to kataragama was a Pada Yathra of sorts.My parents have told me of the visit to katharagama by carts lasting days and days – call it a Ratha yathra if you want.

        When you refer to the Sinhala speaking people, which Sinhala? Today the Sinhala language had become cosmopolitan, but when I came to Ananda in the early 1950s,the words I used, made the more cosmopolitan students from the Western province laugh.Now I know that there are differences among the Sinhala spoken by the people of Western province, The Southern Province and the Central province.Even in the Southern Province there are differences eg between Galle – Matara and Tissamaharama- Kataragama.This may be applicable to the dialect of Vavuniya and Moneragala – Bintenna Sinhala speaking people.

    The sad and continuous misfortune of this island and why it will not progress beyond its current stagnation is the Buddhist Sinhala extremist wing – supported by a politicised Buddhist priesthood and the newer entrance of a highly politicised army hierarchy. Add to this the Navy, Air Force and the Police. There has not been any real democracy in the true sense of the word in the country for decades. It has been rule by the majority with powerful religious interests calling the shots from behind – be it SLFP or UNP lead administrations.

    Those politicians and political parties that, in other words, are virulently anti-Tamil will have the support of the 75% majority.
    This section is made to feel even the most insignificant of concessions granted to Tamils, in order to get them into the mainstream, will be labelled as selling the interests of the Sinhalese
    “to please the demalu and India.” Therefore, those good intentions of people like Maitripala Sirisena, Ranil W, CBK and Mangala S to create a new secular society is unlikely to succeed. There has to be a dent and a division in this pernicious grouping that might give a chance for peace, unity and for the possible emergence of a credible and plural Lankan polity. When Ven. Sobita Thero and JHU’s Ven. Ratanapala boldly broke ranks with the mainstream Sinhala Buddhist clergy, we saw the first signs of a movement away from extremist Sinhala supremacism that has dominated our political landscape since 1956. This resulted in the change on Jan 08.

    It is in the further education of the Buddhist Sinhala priesthood in plural politics of give and take that Sri Lanka can hope for a change from the dire straits it is fated to suffer from the 1950s. They, after all, control the political power of this country surreptitiously.

    The next General Elections will, once more, be decided on which party plays the anti-Tamil – and the bogey of the Diaspora and of the delusion of the return of the Tiger card – most. These are, after all, the most vulnerable susceptibilities of the Sinhala Electorate in the South that decide the outcome of all major elections. That Gothabaya was quick to catch the imagination of this electorate with his message supports this theory. Remember, the first statement Mahinda R made when he returned to his electorate on Jan 10 was “it was the Tamils who beat me” This finds welcome and fertile ground in the consciousness of the electorate in the deep south which has, by far, remained strongly anti-Tamil from 1952.

    But this is not to mean the Tamils have no future. No. The Tamil position is now better understood by relevant players – India, the USA, the UK, the EU, Canada, Australia, Japan, China, S.Africa and most countries.

    If Sinhala extremism – in the SLFP, JVP, SLFP alignments – continues to remain unaccommodating, obstinate and unyielding the international community may be forced to create a separate geo-political arrangement for the Tamils of Sri Lanka, possibly, within the next decade. Let it be noted Sri Lanka remaining united or divided is essentially and unequivocally in Sinhala hands – and theirs only.

      Well said. Thank you.

        Thank you, dear Punitham. Allow me to add some additional thoughts.

        If push comes to shove and the Tamils get their lands back, this will be denying the Sinhalese nothing. It will merely be the restoration of the Status Quo prior to the arrival of the Portugese(1505) The Sinhala political leadership is shy to admit this undeniable historical reality.

        One of the reasons why the Sinhala leadership fears allowing Tamils even internal autonomy is the sheer natural capability of the Tamils. Look at the diaspora. A million escaped injustice and gross discrimination here and went almost empty-handed to the West/Australia in the post-1983 years starting in the lowest levels of society in those countries and in strange environments and hostile weather. Within 2-3 decades, through sheer hard work, labour and enterprise the 2nd generation in the diaspora are now successfully placed in high-income positions. I don’t have to remind you the Rajapakses are dead scared of the diaspora, its economic reach and political clout. PMs of the UK, Canada and Australia have paid tribute to them calling them useful, responsible and exemplary citizens. In many of these countries, Tamils already enjoy positions in local and national legislatures.
        Reason – the great emphasis Tamils culturally place in educatinmg their children (kalvi theivam)

        Despite the Tamil Nation voting the TNA 2 years ago the NPC denied the resources they are entitled to – on flimsy reasons. Why? The Sinhala political leadership fears if the NPC is on its own – even under an undivided country – they will succeed in securing foreign funding for education initially concentrating in setting up a world class integrated university. This University will turn out graduates in demand overseas in the medical, engineering, IT and other disciplines. USA, UK, EU, Japan, Australia will help the new entity with FDIs and other forms of assistance. They know the inborn capacity of the Tamils for hard work and to deliver on promises. The Sinhala South on the other hand suffers a negative reputation arising from indiscipline. Their leaders have scraped the national till to the bottom. I just heard CBK – a former President – on TV publicly
        stating VVIPs of the last regime demanded 50% of the value of
        Norachcholai Plant as Commissions, which the Chinese refused. In the same interview CBK claimed this VVIP angrily asked the Chinese “to get out” – something which they took to badly. This is simply one single issue out of hundreds.

        Sri Lanka’s all round indiscipline and lack of basic scruples – notably in one single decade – is now well established. It will take us many years to regain our good name. It is not that there are no honest or able Sinhalese. There are – many. The tragedy is the recent dispensation killed every aspect of our once respected system of governance earning a reputation of greedy wholesale crooks.

        Another danger that may manifest itself soon – in the event of Tamils getting their internal autonomy – are the Kandyans – who will begin to articulate their dormant fears. It is well known the Kandyans also have received 2nd class treatment under the Rajapakses and, for long, have been restive. It will not be long before the much respected and cultured Kandyans ask for internal rule for themselves. Let us not forget this was the ground reality in the country until the British centralised the country “for administrative convenience” The Kandyans can be expected to claim the Central Province, Sabaragamuwa, most of Uva, Kurunegala and other areas in which they held sway in earlier centuries.

      kettikaran,
      I don’t know why you are surprised that majority populations will always vote for leaders who pander to them. This is universal and is the norm world wide.
      However, I always drum separation of religion and governance. No country has progressed where governance is influenced by religion.I hope people of Sri Lanka will realize this soon.
      You are wrong to say the Sinhalese are anti-Tamil. There is no reason why a Sinhalese should feel that way. Any animosity towards the Tamils if present would be a consequence of terrorizing people of SL by the Tamil group LTTE for 30 long years. Tamils should not expect to win back the trust of Sinhalese soon. Possibly it might take another generation.
      Don’t be despaired by the Tamil’s minority vote in elections. As the Sinhalese are divided equally in most issues, Tamils and Muslims will be deciding the outcome.
      You say “The Tamil position is now better understood by relevant players – India, the USA, the UK, the EU, Canada, Australia, Japan, China, S.Africa and most countries” What is/are this “position” you are talking about? Have you let the govt. and people of SL know what they are? What “position” do the Sinhalese have but not the Tamils?

        It is not a matter of accepting them its a matter for India to absorbing the entire island.

        You will be part of United states of Hindia so will your Tamil brethren. And the island will be known as Sinhala state of Hindia.

        Soma,

        It became 50% because of the 30 year war against the Tamil people.
        I say “Tamil people” because, in the State’s estimate the LTTE were only around 10-12,000 shoeless ill-equipped cadres. Surely you don’t set up a modern army-navy-air force and Police of about 350,000 to dislodge this small number. Those Tamils who ran away to India and other Lankan provinces want to return. But they still feel the situation is not “appropriate” and at any time can deteriorate. The Sri Lankan side under the Rajapakses were in no mood to create the right conditions to bring them back. How can you expect Tamils outside the NP to return when the Rajapakses
        starved resources to the NPC. If the Sirisena-Ranil W administration increase the resource flow BBS, JHU and the SLFP
        will scream “the LTTE and the Tamils are being armed”????
        Remember the old story of cutting the nose to spite the face.

    This is the same old propaganda the MR regime want the people to fall for. They managed to kill the LTTE cadre on the war front, but neither the sentiment nor the activities abroad. It is foolish to think all that can be neutralized by military power. Hasn’t the continuation of LTTE activities taken place under the watch of this super Defense Secretary? By holding on to some military camps in the North how do they propose to neutralize LTTE abroad. It is only thru genuine efforts to bring communities together we will weken LTTE abroad.

    So your claim of defeating the LTTE was a lie then if you say now that they still pose a threat to the nation’s security.

    You will continue to play the LTTE bogey because you and your brother and his cronies have nothing else to fight the election with. Once the election is called Maithri will have no need for the thieves, rapists murderes and other corrupt MPs in the UPFA to pass any legislation. He will then expose the Rajapaksa regime for what it was and many will end up in prison or on the Interpol wanted list as war criminals.

    Gota and his brother will need to shut up and go in to hiding soon.

      Today’s papers reported a secret meeting between Maithree and Mahinda. Why? is it to get together with Mahinda and bring back the rogues? Why cannot Maithree dissolve the parliament?It should have been done when Weerawanse and Co started to screw up the 19A.They brought racialism into the appointments of the Commissions.They have captured the Constitutional Council.Maithree should engineer the removal of Anura Priyadharshana and Premajayantha.What is he doing with the JHU the blood thirsty devils.

    Gota is very selective in getting information put out by the US. The US also states about War Crimes, Abduction and killing of political and media dissidents and corruption of the highest degree by family owned government leadership during Rajapakse regime. It also reports about torture, kidnap,extrajudicial killing and rape by the army occupying the North. How come these facts put out by the US and many other international Human Right Organizations were not visible to Gotabhaya.

    Mr. Gotcha, Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel. — Samuel Johnson–
    In this case falsely placed patriotism is worse than terrorism itself. Sheer embezzlement of the country’s resources and terrorizing opponents while hiding behind false patriotism makes you worse than a scoundrel. Own up to your horrendous crimes before you preach to those trying to rectify your heinous misdeeds. The public security is at risk because of the atrocities you refuse to be held accountable to, because you are still rying to save your sorry axx.

          Srinath, there is a limit of licking behaivour.. you seem to no limits. [Edited out]only abused the nation – as no other leader didt before. Remember at the time Premadasa era took th elives of 50 k youth, what we expected was never ever elect a leader that would suck the people s funds. But very same stupid folks were decieved and MR got elected, I think this nation will never learn lessions. That is why we stay so stagnated. NO FUTURE GENERATIONS will respect you man. See you in mirror and learn to stand with the goodies.

          “Of course it will as dipsticks like you do anything to sell the country for few dollars more!”

          Of course it is unlike selling the country to China, Pakistan, …. and Casinos, …..

          By the way dipsticks are very useful instrument measuring the depth of a liquid unlike you, a heavy drain on resources who sits at home and sends his women folks to medieval middle east kingdom to earn a living.

          “People for thousands of year will talk about how Mahinda Gota SF eradicated the evil from our country!”

          Of course even 70 years after his death people are talking and studying about Hitler.

          “People like Mangala Ranil, sirisena chandrika already in the garbage bin!”

          It appears they are in the garbage bin to clean it so that you can make your home inside it.

          “People will answer Appaya when he get on to a public stage! Sold the soul of the nation biting the ropes from America!”

          MR clan wouldn’t tell you about the deals they made with USA, Hindia, Australia, ………… would they?

    This is the statement of the obvious.Isn’t it?.

    Why didn’t LTTE Suren , Rev Emma and the British Tiger Forum express this love and care for the inhabitants, willingness to co habit and invest their Diaspora Dollars to give us Milk & Honey.

    Previous regime would have given them all that but without any room for the LTTE.

    They now can get all that plus more, and bring the Tigers too, in case President Sira changes his mind.

    If elected as the Legitimate PM, Ranil’s first task will be to replace all Tri Force Commanders with people like Singapore Mahendran.

    And these new appointees will clear the North and the east of all Srilankan Military presence there.

    It was clearly stated in unelected Ranil’s statement in the parliament a couple of days ago.

    This is what he said .

    ” It is the Forces Commanders who will decide about clearing the North and the East of Military presence . And we oblige””

    This President , then as a senior minister, his Chief Minder the ex ex President Mrs Kumaratunga’ and the JVP sacked the current unelected PM ,when he gave Mr Prabakaran and the TNA the ISGA , the Self Governing Authority to the North East.

    And Sira and CBK are now in Mute Mode ,while the unelected Ranil and his chief Emissary the FM, have openly promised what ever the Diaspora and the TNA alliance want from the UNP Government.

    That list although undisclosed to the inhabitants, have more power for the TNA and the Diaspora as evident from the few uttering here and there from the people who are in the know.

    For example the PC is now called the Northern Provincial Government by the people who have the clout..

    The ex ex President CBK is already on record saying that the N P G needs to be a Federal State.

    The question our intelligentsia have failed to address is how far will they go after that.

    I mean 1 Million Tamils living overseas have pledged to establish their Eelaam so that no body can touch them ever again.

    Fair enough.

    Isn’t Srilanka that Eelaam?.

    Even that is Okay, because the Elite and the Anglicans who will have total control will be happy to cohabit with the TNA as they are all on par Economically,

    What about the rest of the population inf,act 5.8 Million in particular and their families?.

    Ranil the unelected PM promises one Million jobs for them.

    How cool.

    Will they be allowed in the North unless they go there to sweep the roads.

    Even that is doubtful, because they are Sinhala Buddhists.

    Last but not least why didn’t the current President, the ex ex President and the JVP allow Ranil then to give Piraparan the ISGA?.

    Wouldn’t that have saved 30,000 Sinhala , and Malay lives and prevented another 100,000 youth sitting in Wheel Chairs today ?..

    How ironic the writer of this article was one of the very people who blocked Colombo Telegraph from the web.

    If Gotabhaya is so concerned for the well being of our nation, his family should not have treated it like they owned it, used our national treasury to fill the family coffers, ran our national carrier to the ground, sent special flights to bring exotic dogs, terrorized journalists, sent white vans to kidnap those who stood in their way, and did nothing when saffron robed thugs attacked minorities.

    NOW he is worried about the well being of Sri Lankans. Yeah right.

    This sadistic maniac is more of a threat to Sri Lankan democracy than the LTTE could ever be.

    “Former Navy Commander Admiral Wasantha Karannagoda was aware of the abductions of children by commandos of the Sri Lanka Navy.”

    All these child murderers and their handlers should be held accountable for their crimes against civilians.

    Shame on Japan for accepting him as a diplomat.

          No wonder you are completely unaware of the mentality of the people in Sri Lanka. You were out of Sri Lanka for 35 years. Don’t think that your isolated single opinion will reflect the majority’s opinion in Sri Lanka.

          Millions of people who lived in Sri Lanka from 1980s upto date only know how they spent their lives in fear with bloody LTTE terrorism, car bombs, suicide bombers, sacrilege, massacre, without any hope for their lives until terrorism was eradicated in 2009.

          It may be news to you, but 90% of the people in Sri Lanka want Mahinda Rajapaksa back in power and Gotabhaya Rajapaksa to look after the national security in Sri Lanka.

Among the Sinhalese we have you and few other and to equal that we Tamils have our share of fools who still think VP is still alive and he will be back with a bigger army to conquer the Tamil land. Keep dreaming. At least idiots can dream together on both sides of the divide.

    Gota baya,

    The irony of it all. You had no qualms blocking CT when you were in power.
    The seige mentality that you promoted, not only of Tamil threats but also imaginary Muslim threats as well have come unstuck. You have heard it before, I assume, ‘that you can’t fool all the people all the time’. That is why you and your robber baron family were thrown out. You have lost credibility my friend.

    The incident you have alluded to where an unnamed intelligence unit killed three unnamed suspects is all hogwash. The three people as far as I know were witnesses to a rape. In usual Sri Lankan style of your time the witnesses were silenced. No case to answer.

    By the way, where is Eknaligoda.

    So when such reports does not suit your liking it is called a “Western Conspiracy” by you , Wimal and the clan. When such reports favour your stance it becomes “Biblical truth” to you. What a farce you are Gota.

    By the way who gave you permission to post your comments on CT?? you considered this forum anti nationalistic. So tell us the purpose of your article is it in the personal interest of your family’s political future or are you being anti national?

    The West is playing a game. The Sri Lankan politicians are not smart enough to understand it, but carrying on with it for their own benefits. India created the LTTE, but had no intention or resources to carry on for decades. But the West hijacked the war from India and indirectly supported the LTTE through Tamil diaspora. The truth is Sinhalese and Tamils are not smart enough to deal with the powerful and knowledgeable West. The worse is coming to Sri Lanka. Sri Lankans have been fighting since the independence due to lack of knowledge. Not only the politicians, but newspaper editors, university professors, school principals, teachers and employers are in the same boat as the politicians. Therefore, I don’t think the situation will change in the near future.

    “I urge the Honourable Leader of Opposition to join us in this journey of confidence building, reconciliation and development.” Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera.

    “Sri Lanka can be transformed into the main hub of the Indian Ocean” – Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe.

    Those statements are nothing but a political rhetoric to get votes to win the next election. This is far more laughable joke than the previous regime’s political rhetoric “wonder of Asia.” This country has serious issues, but the politicians are throwing useless political rhetoric to keep their positions to create wealth for themselves. I have been in Sri Lanka for the last two months. It is impossible to get a job to use my skills and knowledge. I even applied for a lecturing position at Jaffna University as an accounting lecturer-based on one year contract, but the three positions have been offered to the people who have far lesser exposure in practical knowledge. I have an Australian business degree major in accountancy. I have worked as an accountant in Australia for more than ten years. I have also worked in Canada and New Zealand. I also worked as a business studies lecturer in Malaysia. But it is impossible to to get a job in Sri Lanka. It is very clear, not only the politicians, but employers, university professors, school principals and teachers also destroy this country for their own benefits. Otherwise it is impossible to fight since the independence. I have also done two research papers equal to two PhDs. First Research Paper – What are the stumbling blocks for the Asians? What need to be done to prosper as the world’s majority in Asia as well as in the world? I have chosen the thesis, and the research materials; because the West will never offer this kind of thesis to wake the billions of Asians why they are under the West. Second Research Paper – What made the Western countries so powerful, and what it takes them to keep their power. I have chosen the thesis, and the research materials; because the Western countries will never offer this kind of thesis to tell the world how they have been ruling the world, and how they are indented to carry on. However, I can’t get a job in Sri Lanka, but the Foreign Minister is looking for the other diaspora intellectuals to develop the country. The truth is South Asians’ minds and hearts are darker than their skin color. The leaders must address real issues ASAP, otherwise South Asia will be always behind the West, China, Japan and South East Asian countries.

    Gota was always blamed for anti-Muslim incidents under the last Government.

    Just four days ago CT published a list of anti-Muslim hate incidents since Yahapalanaya took office. Is Gota behind these too?

    Is he also to blame for Low rainfall, dengue fever and yesterday’s traffic jam at Thunmulla?

    Hi, Gotabaya Rajapaksa –

    S. V. Kirubaharan who wrote the below given article was in your list of assassination. It was strongly believed that was the reason his name was not included the ban list diaspora.

    Has he escaped or still in the list of assassination is still a curious question.

    However this FYI.

He was on his way to teach the Muslims a lesson he hoped they would never forget but MS/Ranil/CBK/RAW had other ideas.

      Aren’t you happy that he killed more innocent Tamils?
