TNA Wants GoSL To Disclose Reasons For Diaspora Designation Under IHL

The Tamil National Alliance calls on the Government of Sri Lanka to review the decision to designate diaspora organisations and individuals and remove them from the list whom there is no evidence of engaging in or supporting any ‘terrorist acts’ as defined by the 2005 Act.

sampanthan 1-colombo telegraphIssuing a statement the TNA today said; “We note that Regulation 7 of the United Nations Regulations No. 1 of 2012 stipulates that the Competent Authority shall take all reasonable steps to notify such organisations and individuals in writing of such designation. Moreover, the Regulation provides that the written notice shall contain information relating to the reasons for the designation.”

“Despite the lapse of two months since the publication of the said Gazette notification, the Government of Sri Lanka has failed to present any reasons for the designation of these organisations and individuals.” the TNA further said.

We publish below the statement in full;

The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) wishes to unequivocally condemn the recent action taken by the Government of Sri Lanka to designate several Tamil diaspora organisations and individuals under Gazette Extraordinary No. 1854/41 of 21 March 2014. This Gazette notification was issued under the United Nations Regulations No. 1 of 2012 published in the Gazette Extraordinary No. 1758/19 of 15 May 2012.

These measures come in the wake of the passage of Resolution 25/1 on ‘Promoting reconciliation, accountability and human rights in Sri Lanka’, adopted at the 25th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council on the 23 March 2014.

We note that Regulation 7 of the United Nations Regulations No. 1 of 2012 stipulates that the Competent Authority shall take all reasonable steps to notify such organisations and individuals in writing of such designation. Moreover, the Regulation provides that the written notice shall contain information relating to the reasons for the designation.

Despite the lapse of two months since the publication of the said Gazette notification, the Government of Sri Lanka has failed to present any reasons for the designation of these organisations and individuals.

We note that the reasons for designating any organisation or individual must disclose ‘reasonable grounds’ for belief that such organisation or individual has committed or attempted to commit, or participated in or facilitated the commission of ‘terrorist acts’. According to the United Nations Regulations No. 1 of 2012, the definition of ‘terrorist act’ has the same specific meaning as in the Convention on the Suppression of Terrorist Financing Act, No.25 of 2005. In this context, the written notices must explain the reasons for designating such organisatisons and individuals in light of the specific definition provided in the Act.

Among the several organisations and individuals listed, are many who have supported the TNA’s quest to find a political solution to the National Question based on a framework of devolution that is within in a united Sri Lanka and acceptable to all communities. Such a framework has been enunciated by us continuously at elections and endorsed by the Tamil People.  We cite for example, the public statement issued by the Global Tamil Forum (GTF) on 14 January 2012, in which they said:

We note that the elected representatives of the Tamil people in Sri Lanka the Tamil National Alliance has engaged with the Government of Sri Lanka for the past one year, in dialogue to find a durable, and dignified political solution to the National Question. Such resolution must necessarily alter the governance structure of the country to recognise that the Tamil speaking peoples are entitled to the right to self-determination and granting to them irreversible autonomy in the areas of historic habitation. We for our part will support the full implementation of such an arrangement if agreed upon, and urge the international community to encourage the Sri Lankan Government to come up with such an acceptable political solution and ensure its genuine implementation.

There are many other diaspora organisations that are members of the GTF, which is an umbrella organisation. The Government of Sri Lanka has designated some of these organisations along with the GTF. There are others too who have no links whatsoever to any ‘terrorist acts’ as defined in the 2005 Act, but have been designated in the list without a shred of evidence to justify such designation.  These organizations and individuals have consistently and publicly argued for a political solution within an undivided country. For instance, the Australian Tamil Congess (ATC) published a document in July 2010 titled, ‘A Blueprint for a peaceful Sri Lanka’, in which their goal for a political solution was articulated as follows:

Implementation of a political solution that provides equal rights and opportunities to all citizens of Sri Lanka, with the committed engagement of major and minor political parties and supported by the International Community.

Similarly, the Canadian Tamil Congress (CTC), as recent as September 2013, congratulated the TNA on its victory at the Northern Provincial Council election, and stated:

We at CTC call upon the Sri Lankan government to recognize the wishes of the Tamil people through the result of this election and immediately implement the 13th amendment in full. It is also very clear from the TNA election manifesto, the government of Sri Lanka must go far beyond the 13th amendment to satisfy the Tamil people. We therefore call upon the international community, particularly India, to put all their influence in helping to implement the legitimate demands of the Tamil people in Sri Lanka.

The Canadian Tamil Congress thanks and applauds the people of the Northern province for exercising their democratic right by voting in this election, despite all the intimidation. CTC recognizes and respects the wishes of Tamil people and will stand by the TNA and its Chief Minister elect Justice Wigneswaran in the quest to achieve real equality, justice, peace and respect for our people.

While acknowledging the right of any government to take appropriate steps to counter violent threats to national security—provided those steps comply with domestic and international human rights and humanitarian law—we note with serious concern that this regressive step taken by the government is consistent with many other measures that it continues to take in the North and the East that are against the spirit of reconciliation. These measures include the military occupation of private lands, and the arbitrary arrest, detention and ‘rehabilitation’ of Tamil youth under the Prevention of Terrorism Act.

We therefore call on the Government of Sri Lanka to review the decision to designate all of the said organisations and individuals and remove from that list organisations and individuals against whom there is no evidence of engaging in or supporting any ‘terrorist acts’ as defined by the 2005 Act.

    Mr.Sampanthan!

    Will the government do what you ask? No. You have no powers, the newly elected provincial council has no powers, you have no say even as an opposition member. You say whatever you want to in the name of the Tamil people. What are the elected parliamentary members doing and what are the elected provincial council members doing including the chief minister. You don’t go to the people to ask what their priorities are. Resign and be at home. Of course you have no other income or influence which you have and for which you all depend on the Sri Lankan Government. The fate of the Tamils have been like this for the last 80 years and the subjugation will continue and the lands from the North and East would be grabbed from the Tamils and until the they become minorities in the North and East.

      TNA Wants GoSL To Disclose Reasons For Diaspora Designation Under IHL

      The Govt. goes not have to do anything. They will just ignore or sleep on it.

      If you really want the Govt, to do something, you need action.

      Dispose off a few Govt. MP’s and their stooges, explode a few crackers, small and large etc.

      Then you can say because the Govt, is not doing something, you are doing something about it.

      Would the civilized world do what SL Gov requested? No… If SL government is not abide by UN resolution and openly ( but not officially) reject it, thgen what rights does it has to request the world using UN regulation?
      SL Gov won’t listen to Sampanthan, you are correct there and that is the ugly truth, but world should hear Sampanthan’s analysis and argument…

      Aiyo Sellam, you are talking as if you are the elected representative of the Tamils. RS was chosen by the Tamils in the North/East. If you are so sure of what you are saying, you can by all means stand where RS stands for election the next time and then can do what you want for the Tamils. Until them, please shut up and don’t bluff and behave as if you have that mandate.

        You may be one of the few people who is happy when the LTTE assassinated all our Tamil leaders. Who are the Tamil leaders now? There is none. Elect a Sinhalese leader to represent the Tamils. They will be well off.

          Sellam:

          What do you mean by ALL Tamil leaders? R Sampanthan is still standing. Who them murdered Joseph Pararajasingham, and that too in a church, and that too when attending a Christmas mass? Who murdered more than 40,000 civilians during a HUMANITARIAN operation?

          Perhaps you are an ignorant dump. History of SL is littered with Sinhalese chosen to represent the Tamils. Prime Ministers and Presidents sought and received Tamil votes but then Tamils had lost hope forever when they were eventually abandoned. It will be good for you to read how Tamils initially objected to the independence drive by the Sinhalese along the lines of Sinhalese supremacy but had been duped into believing that Tamils would get a fair share of governance. Agreements entered into were unceremoniously torn and thrown away. The present regime called for meetings and discussions and agreed that what were to be agreed shall form the basis of a devolution package but again the Tamils were cheated. The bare truth is, Sinhalese leaders and politicians are born liars and cheats. They will hurt the Tamils as much as possible to reach the top of their political ladders. It runs in their blood. That is the reason why Tamils prefer to choose their own and as long as R Sampanthan is around, they are in good hands.

                      And why is Sri Lanka now reinventing the LTTE? Do they think it’s better to have a “terrorist threat” than not to gain international sympathy?

                      Dear Rajash,

                      Re “ya ya the only country to defeat terrorism in the world”

                      That is unquestionably true.

                      Re “So is Mahinda telling Modi that Sri Lanka can help India to destroy terrorist threat from Pakistan?”

                      That of course is DUMB.
                      You should have directed that question to Mahinda.

                      Re “And why is Sri Lanka now reinventing the LTTE?”

                      You could ask that from Rudra or Usha who is a frequent contributor to CT. They may know why LTTE operatives are getting caught in Malaysia, India and Lanka.

                      Perhaps they were Dumb to get caught!

                      Re “Do they think it’s better to have a “terrorist threat” than not to gain international sympathy?”

                      Perhaps they think it is better to nip it in the bud and avoid the cardinal mistake they did with Prabahkaran who only had one pistol when he killed the Jaffna Mayor, Alfred Duraiappa.

                      A Cancer has to be completely destroyed otherwise it grows back.

                      International sympathy is what you are begging for. Lanka does not need sympathy only a fair an rational assessment.

              off-the-cuff:

              Why only talk about the Tamil Diaspora? What about the LTTE and also ask yourself the question if SWB, SB, JJ, MR had behaved as buddhists instead of cheats and liars, would there be any necessity for Prabhakaran to take up arms? The Tamils never even imagined of an arms resistance until they realised that beggars wanted to rob their lands, sadists continued raping their women/girls and rowdies acted more like cheats and liars. There cannot be any dismissive or a lenient description or connotation of rascals who took Tamils for a ride since independence. Buddhism was only a cover for them to parade as thiefs and robbers.

              Also, who was responsible for the “reign of terror” during the 1970s when more than 70,000 mostly Sinhalese were murdered and went missing. How many did Prabhakaran kill? How many girls/women did he rape? Now, one by one of your leaders are going to be dragged to answer for the crimes, nurders and rapes. You eunuchs swallowed the killing of large numbers of your own kind by your own race but don’t expect Tamils to be dumps like you nuts. The “terror flag” of the diaspora made Cameron to walk into your country, whip your president left-centre-right and there was nothing your president could do except to look blank. By the way, when is MR/GR/BR visiting UK? The diaspora is eagerly waiting to throw a red carpet welcome like the last time he visited the UK. I can recommend you to them as the liaison officer with a good standing in the regime.

                You gave us an impression as if you are well informed, well educated, well read, … now it appears you seem to lack a basic knowledge of what’s going on in this island.

                Now it appears a jungle dwelling Veddah is well informed than a city slicker who likes to believe himself as the omniscient Sinhala/Buddhist.

                This is five year old information. You could have informed yourself well if you had the openness to read others’ comment. Even couple of weeks ago I mentioned this in this forum.

                My advice to you, read carefully before you start typing. I am sure you will learn one or two things that you never had the humility to know or accept.

                Nothing personal.

                Have you read Jane Russell’s book?

                  I have not claimed anything other than that my posts are based on fact. Everything else about me is in your imagination. When the mirror is crooked the image is crooked too.

                  An impression is what you create on your own. It depends on how sane and rational you are. From what I have seen so far, your sanity and rationality is in doubt.

                  Re “Now it appears a jungle dwelling Veddah is well informed than a city slicker who likes to believe himself as the omniscient Sinhala/Buddhist”

                  That is unfortunately a SELF impression of an egoistic and hallucinating Tamil separatist.

                  Good advice and I abide by it. Unfortunately you don’t that’s why you saw quotes where non existed.

                  Here is an example
                  Under the article at this link

                  My post of May 22, 2014 at 1:42 pm addressed to Anpu was as follows

                  You have missed the most important personage. The guy who started this Racist Snowball rolling. But of course he is not a PM or a President and is not a Sinhalese or a Buddhist. Mr G. G. Ponnambalam, the Founder of the All Ceylon Tamil Congress chose Racism as a Political Tool to dethrone the Ramanathans whose politics was casteism. If you are looking for someone to blame, blame the Father of Racism in 20th Century Sri Lanka, Mr. GGP. He started the racist snowball.

                  Questioning the above you asked May 22, 2014 at 8:27 pm

                  “Could you quote the chapter and pages where it was quoted that “If you are looking for someone to blame, blame the Father of Racism in 20th Century Sri Lanka, Mr. GGP. He started the racist snowball.” ”

                  Had you taken your own advise to heart “read carefully before you start typing” you would not have put your foot in your mouth by asking me to quote when I had not quoted from anywhere.

                  Perhaps you were myopic or was hallucinating in a drug/alcohol induced stupor.

                  Re “I am sure you will learn one or two things that you never had the humility to know or accept”

                  Humility is what you lacked when you did not acknowledge your mistake and instead acted like a dog that has defecated on a stone.

                  Re “Have you read Jane Russell’s book?”

                  Why do you ask? Did you see anything in Dr Russel’s book that I did not see indicating that GGP was not a Racist?

                  If so simply quoting her with page references would suffice (as I have done in my posts). I will verify what you say by checking those pages.

                  If you are right I will accept what you say but if you are attempting deception I will expose you as a Fraud.

                  What is significant is your dishonesty in resurrecting an argument that you abandoned elsewhere under this article.

                    Off the Cuff

                    You quoted certain lines from Jane Russel’s book. There is more related information in her book than you care to mention. You have a habit of plagiarizing other articles and have never bothered to fact check hence you come with a sweeping comments to suite/support your racist views about history. Your only purpose is to lie, lie through your teeth, by selectively quoting from her book with commission and omission of what she had written as her PhD thesis.

                    Had you read the complete book you would have informed yourself about more racism on the part of Sinhala/Buddhist bigots than GG Ponna (I am not a fan of him).

                    You haven’t read the book, simply copying and pasting from another article written by another bigot is not a good defense for being lazy ignorant racist.

                    Simple question

                    Have you read the complete book by Jane Russell?

                      I note that you are ducking questions.

                      You claimed “This is five year old information. You could have informed yourself well if you had the openness to read others’ comment. Even couple of weeks ago I mentioned this in this forum”

                      I asked you to substantiate that statement.
                      You have AVOIDED doing so.

                      Please provide an authoritative reference.
                      Was that unprovable gossip?

                      My post May 22, 2014 at 1:42 pm, addressed to Anpu (referenced previously), does not contain ANY quotations from Dr Russell.

                      Hence please explain why you asked me to quote from Dr Russell?

                      Was it because you could not understand English or were you in a Drug/Alcohol induced stupor when you wrote it?

                      Remember the advice you gave me to “read carefully before you start typing” . Did you read the referenced post carefully before you started typing? If so why did you fail to notice that I did not quote Dr. Russell?

                      What is your explanation?
                      Drug addiction or Alcoholism or plain Stupidity?

                      Re “There is more related information in her book than you care to mention.”

                      What is stopping you from quoting them?
                      Is there anything that absolves GGP from making the hate speech at Nawalapitiya, in 1939?

                      If so quote with page numbers. Then I can verify whether you are Lying or telling the Truth. You have been heeing and hawing without doing so. Why are you afraid?

                      Is it because you have never seen Dr Russel’s book let alone reading it?

                      Re “You have a habit of plagiarizing other articles and have never bothered to fact check hence you come with a sweeping comments to suite/support your racist views about history.”

                      Firstly, you are using words that you don’t understand the meaning of. Who are you trying to impress?

                      Plagiarise – to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one’s own : use (another’s production) without crediting the source.

                      I have always given credit to my sources in ALL my posts. Pray explain how that becomes Plagiarising?

                      Are you that STUPID to attempt redefining English words?

                      Secondly, Any idiot can make such Ad Hominem attacks. Substantiate what you say, if you are not an idiot.

                      Re “Your only purpose is to lie, lie through your teeth, by selectively quoting from her book with commission and omission of what she had written as her PhD thesis”

                      When I quote from her book with page numbers and you fail to quote ANYTHING to counter mine it is obvious that you could not find any or you have not read it yourself though you claimed to posses it.

                      Unfortunately for you, her book is unavailable on the Internet.

                      Why have you failed to counter what I quoted with a counter quote from her? Couldn’t find any? Not surprising when you don’t have access to it.

                      You claimed your “elders” posses and have read “Communal Politics Under The Donoughmore Constitution 1931 – 1947″ from cover to cover. Yet you can’t make a SINGLE QUOTE from it to counter what I write.

                      Are you Lying?
                      It sure seems so.
                      Can you prove you are not LYING?

                      Now let’s critically examine that accusation you made about Lying through the teeth and distorting History.

                      Here is a quote from a post of yours.

                      “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”

                      Do you deny writing it?
                      Is that degrading reference to the Sri Lankan Forces True or False?

                      I can prove that it is a calculated Lie designed to defame the SL Forces and to distort History. The Indo Lanka Peace Accord says you are LYING through your Teeth (unless you don’t have any teeth) Would you care to challenge me to do so?

                      What does that make you?

                      I have access to Jane’s book.

                      Have you read her entire book where she traces the origin of Sinhala/Buddhist racism in completely different period and different context to your conclusion.

                      You copied and pasted a few lines and page numbers here and there and are stealthily trying to convince the readers as if you have read the entire book, whereas you haven’t got a clue what Jane was trying to convey in its entirety.

                      Go, Read, come back, and let us know the summary. Let see whether reading the entire book has given you a new perspective to the whole issue of racism.

                      By the way I wrote the comment and provided details of content page to Banda on 20 April 2014.

                      You were requested to provide an authoritative reference. You have failed so far.

                      Make good on your bragging, produce authoritative evidence.

                      3. My post of May 22, 2014 at 1:42 pm addressed to Anpu, DID NOT CONTAIN ANY QUOTES from ANYONE.

                      (https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/chandrika-inclusive-whom-have-we-tamils-spared/comment-page-1/#comments)

                      Questioning my post you asked on May 22, 2014 at 8:27 pm “Could you quote the chapter and pages where it was quoted that “If you are looking for someone to blame, blame the Father of Racism in 20th Century Sri Lanka, Mr. GGP. He started the racist snowball.” ”

                      You were seeing Quotes where no quotes existed.

                      That is the type of dishonest arguments you bring.

                      Was it because you could not understand English or you were in a Drug/Alcohol induced stupor or your inherent dishonesty coming to the fore?

                      My contention was that GGP caused the first Sinhala Tamil riots of the 20th century in 1939 at a time communal peace existed between them by delivering a Hate Speech at a public meeting in Nawalapitiya. Hence GGP was the father of political racism of modern Lanka.

                      In support of that in my subsequent reply I quoted from Dr Russell’s book and from the Hindu Organ Editorial.

                      To date you have been unable to make a counter argument, though you claim Dr Russel was not critical of GGP.

                      Your inability to make a counter argument gives the Lie to your bogus claims of possessing both the Hindu Organ and Dr Russell’s book. Lamely putting up the contents page is not proof.

                      Re “Have you read her entire book where she traces the origin of Sinhala/Buddhist racism in completely different period and different context to your conclusion.”

                      You are trying to hoodwink the readers.

                      I was referring to the 20th Century Lanka which was at peace between Sinhalese and Tamils till it was destroyed by GGP’s Hate Speech at Nawalapitiya in 1939.

                      Produce a logical argument using Dr Jane’s book to counter mine. That you cannot do so is apparent to any unbiased reader.

                      Re “You copied and pasted a few lines and page numbers here and there and are stealthily trying to convince the readers as if you have read the entire book”

                      Copy and Paste! From where? It’s not available on the Internet. You cannot copy and paste what is only available in print. Don’t be an idiot! I don’t mind you copying and pasting as long as you reveal the source. I don’t expect you to reinvent the wheel.

                      What I have posted are authentic quotes from Dr Jane’s book which are RELEVANT to my contention. I am not a fool like you to quote irrelevant material from here and there. If you don’t agree PROVE your case. To date you have been unsuccessful.

                      Re “whereas you haven’t got a clue what Jane was trying to convey in its entirety”

                      You are a very confused person.
                      My comment was not a review of Dr Jane Russell’s book.
                      Please read it again.

                      Re “By the way I wrote the comment and provided details of content page to Banda on 20 April 2014”

                      Not so Fast.
                      My question was whether you wrote the following?

                      “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”

                      You did not write that to Banda.
                      You wrote it to Manoharan. I reproduced it at the beginning of this post.

                      What you wrote to Banda has more Distortions of History.

                      Here is just one.

                      You wrote “This is only a part of your observation. The rest of your narrative deliberately ignored the following acts of cruelty and hatred: Disenfranchisement of more than 1.2 million people”

                      All that twisted and convoluted wording refers to the Ceylon Citizenship Act No. 18 of 1948.

                      Is it an impartial observation of a rational and logical Human Being? Given what follows I don’t think so.

                      You are DELIBERATELY using inflammatory language and Lying through your Teeth!!!

                      The Citizenship Act was UPHELD by the Privy Council at a time when the Soulbury Constitution was the Supreme Law of Ceylon and Section 29 was active. Surely you are not insinuating that the Privy Council, the Highest Court of the British Empire, Colluded with the Ceylon Govt, to Prostitute the Soulbury Constitution, enacted by the Brits themselves, to DISENFRANCHISE the Indian Origin Tamils?

                      It also exemplifies the inability of Tamil Separatists to accept a Judicial decision even from a non Sri Lankan body.

                      The Act was passed with 9 out of 12 Tamil MP’s of G. G. Ponnambalam’s Tamil Congress voting in favour of the Citizenship Act. (you suppressed that)

                      The Privy Council held that the Act was intra vires of the Ceylon legislature. (you suppressed that)

                      Your argument attempting to blame the Sinhalese is the Typical argument of Tamil Separatists such as Ms Usha S Sriskanderaja, senator, TGTE. It is a corruption and suppression of Fact

                      Here is a short excerpt. The full and lengthy decision of the Privy Council is available on the internet at http://www.lawnet.lk/docs/case_law/nlr/common/html/NLR54V433.htm

                      Extract
                      [IN THE PRIVY COUNCIL]

                      1953 Present : Lord Normand, Lord Oaksey, Lord Tucker, Lord Asquith of Bishopstone and Lord Cohen

                      G. S. N. KODAKAN PILLAI, Appellant, and P. B. MUDANAYAKE et al., Respondents

                      PRIVY COUNCIL APPEAL NO. 7 OF 1952

                      S. C. 368-Application for Writ of Certiorari
                      …………..
                      …………..
                      It was suggested on behalf of the appellant that this Act might itself be ultra vires as conferring a privilege upon Indian Tamils within section 29 (2) (c) of the Constitution Order-in-Council and that therefore it was inadmissible to rebut the inference that the legislature had intended by the Citizenship and Franchise Acts to make Indian Tamils liable to disabilities within the meaning of section 29 (2) (6) but their Lordships cannot accept this argument. If there was a legislative plan the plan must be looked at as a whole and when so looked at it is evident in their Lordships’ opinion that the legislature did not intend to prevent Indian Tamils from attaining citizenship provided that they were sufficiently connected with the island.
                      ………
                      ………
                      ………

                      Is it in the present case legislation on citizenship or is it legislation intended to make and making Indian Tamils liable to disabilities to which other communities are not liable ? It is as the Supreme Court observed a perfectly natural and legitimate function of the legislature of a country to determine the composition of its nationals. Standards of literacy, of property, of birth or of residence are as it seems to their Lordships standards which a legislature may think it right to adopt in legislation on citizenship and it is clear that such standards though they may operate to exclude the illiterate, the poor and the immigrant to a greater degree than they exclude other people do not create disabilities in a community as such since the community is not bound together as a community by its illiteracy, its poverty or its migratory character but by its face or its religion. The migratory habits of the Indian Tamils (see paragraphs 123 and 203 Soulbury Report) are facts which in their Lordships’ opinion are directly relevant to the question of their suitability as citizens of Ceylon and have nothing to do with them as a community.

                      For all these reasons their Lordships have come to the conclusion that the Citizenship and Franchise Acts are intra vires of the Ceylon legislature and they therefore humbly advise Her Majesty that this appeal ought to be dismissed. The appellant must pay the costs of the appeal.

                      Appeal dismissed

                      Dear Native Veddha aka Tamil separatist,

                      You have not answered a SINGLE question directed at you in my previous post of May 30, 2014 at 3:18 am?

                      This is the Third time you are posting the contents page.
                      You already posted it on May 29, 2014 at 1:27 pm and referred me to an old post of yours to Banda with the same info (and some other Fibs of yours).

                      The usually arrogantly articulate Veddha is Lost for Words

                      The contents page does not prove anything but your inability to make a logical argument using the information inside the book proves that your bluff has been called.

                    No I didn’t buy it, my Elders provided a copy. Its Jane Russell not “Jane whoever’s”.

                    “no need to rush and lose sleep”

                    Thanks for your advice, but you are too late.

                    However I cannot sleep for different reason. The stupid Tamil people occupy North and the other stupid Sinhala/Buddhist people occupy South. I don’t even have room to stretch my arms and legs as long as descendants of Kallthonies remain in my ancestral island. Under these circumstances how do you expect me to have a good night sleep?

                    “begin at the 1st chapter and work ur way to the end.”

                    Good advice. Are you in the habit of reading from the last page to front? Do you read books at all? I am surprised.

                    Dear Dawn Dale,

                    This fraud can’t explain what he himself has written. After writing downright Lies and Rubbish the way he became Sanctimonious in his reply to Rajahs was disgusting. He will take time to progress beyond the contents page!

                    Here are some thought about the Indigenes of Lanka.

                    “Genetic affiliations of the Sri Lankan population” (1995) Dr. Gautam K. Kshatriya (wiki)

                    Parental Populations of the Sinhalese
                    Tamil (India) 69.86%
                    Bengalis 25.41%
                    Veddah 4.73%

                    According to a later study published in 2013 “Mitochondrial DNA history of Sri Lankan ethnic people: their relations within the island and with the Indian subcontinental populations” (by Lanka Ranaweera, Supannee Kaewsutthi, Aung Win Tun, Hathaichanoke Boonyarit, Samerchai Poolsuwan and Patcharee Lertrit). This was brought to my notice by Ken Robert who posted a comment here (May 28, 2014 at 10:00 pm)

                    According to BOTH studies the Veddha is related only to the Sinhalese and not to any other Tamil groups in Lanka.

                    “Interestingly, highest number of haplotype sharing was found between Vedda with Up-country Sinhalese and with Low-country Sinhalese. On the other hand, there was no haplotype sharing between the Vedda people with any of the Tamils” (ibid)

                    The 2013 study states that Indian Origin Tamils of Lanka (IOTL) are not related to Lanka Tamils. This is strange because we know that IOTL are from South India (Tamil Nadu?).

                    That means Lanka Tamils are not from South India/Tamil Nadu as they claim!

                    Quote
                    However, Indian Tamils were separated from the rest of the Sri Lankan subgroups, except SU-Bam and SL-Ban, on the first PC axis. This is further strengthening of the hypothesis that Indian Tamils are genetically distinct from the rest of the Sri Lankan ethnic groups.
                    Unquote (ibid)

                    But both the Sinhalese and Lanka Tamils are related to people from the Indian subcontinent.

                    Quote
                    The PCA is extended further to include various other ethnic populations from the Indian subcontinent (Supplementary Table S2) Figure 4. The result shown in Figure 5 accounted for 52.59% of the total variation. All the Sinhalese and Tamil subgroups intermingle well with the majority of the Indian subcontinental populations, forming a large genetic matrix.
                    Unquote (ibid)

                    The Sinhalese are not found as Natives anywhere else in the world other than Lanka.

                    Hence they did not come to Lanka but evolved in Lanka from some emigrants most probably from India and the indigenes of Lanka in the distant past.

                    They have Veddha as a Parent along with emigrants from India.

                    The Lanka Tamils are genetically related to Sinhalese but not to South Indian Tamils of Lanka. Indicating that they are not from South India/Tamil Nadu as they believe but possibly a separate branch of the Sinhalese that speak Tamil.

                    The Veddha is an indigene of Lanka
                    The Sinhalese is a progeny of the Veddha
                    The Lanka Tamils is a progeny of the Sinhalese
                    All of them therefore are indigenes of Lanka.

      Good question!

      NPC doesnt talk about the real problems of the tamil public there. Then what does NPC do? become a tool in the hands of anti Lankan elements who had been sponsoring terrorism in Sri Lanka.

      The anti Lankan seperatist forces are issues that needs to be tackled by the defence authoritoes and the central gov of this country. A provincial council has NO say in this.

      Sampanthan might have right to question being an MP in parliament. But Sampandan was also a tool of seperatist forces for like……30+ years.

      I remember Sampanthan pressurizing the then governments to lift LTTE ban so that they can use the gov funds in ‘developing’ LTTE areas!

      All these things emerge because the tamil leadership is a proxy of LTTE sponsors in the west. As long as LTTE uses them or in other words as long as leaders of this generation remains this problems will continue.

      The moment NPC got elected, tamils problems were never their issue. It was all about how to pick a fight with the gov.

      The bottom line is Tamils as a whole thinks they have NO responsibility for the continuance of war and that every other one did harm to them and they were little babies. Get this into your head, you funded a terror force in this country for 30 years killing people of every race.

        Sach – Good question! NPC doesnt talk about the real problems of the tamil public there.>>Sach this is an example of your double talk and tounge twisiting and why I said in another blog in CT that you talk through your arse.>>> You have said in another blogg in CT that Jaffana Tamils are FAR FAR FAR better off now and they have no problems.

        Here you just want to criticise NPC and you are stating that NP is not highlighting the problems of Jaffana people.

        So what is it ? are Tamils FAR FAR FAR better off ot hey still have problems.

        Make up your mind ?

          I cant help you if your comprehension lags behind others. I counter argued the point you made that tamils in Jaffna are in a worse situation than the war period. It was that stupid remark that I needed to point out. And it stays the same as you could not give a successful counter argument but ran away saying that you have won!

          To make it simpler to understand you, I said Tamils in Jaffna are in FAR FAR better than they were in WAR PERIOD. Do you know what war period is? That dishum dishum thing, little boy!

          But I didn’t mean all the problems are sorted out or Jaffna is developed. Many small industry sectors can be developed by NPC which they don’t pay attention to. Main example being fishermen’s crisis. Before your contract killers started killing 30-40% fish in SL markets came from Jaffna tamils, now they are becoming laborers. The water problem in North. These are the issues of people that NPC needs to take care of. Even all newthe hospitals are built by MR, not NPC. Why NPC doesn’t want to.

        sach:

        Before the advent of the LTTE, before the LTTE took up arms, all the Tamil leaders pursued a path of negotiations and ultimately passive resistance. SWB, the oxford educated PM entered into an agreement with Chelva (on behalf of the Tamils). Immediately after the elections, SWB tore up that agreement. What do you make of an oxford educated person behaving in such a lowly manner? MR is a half-past six lawyer and his brother Gotabaya was a boot-polisher in the US and if they behave as such, then there could be some comprehension about their dubious behavior and when they promise anything, it literally means and should be translated to mean they didn’t what they say. But what of an oxford educated crook who paraded as a gentleman. Chelva maintained his part of the bargain but SWB proved that irrespective of what religion he or she belongs to, a Sinhalese is a Sinhalese no matter what and their main trade is to cheat and lie.

        Chelva, having been bruised by such uncouthly behabviour, which he is not used to, still believed that there was still a remote possibility of at least one soul that may have a spark of goodness and honesty in him and entered into an agreement on the request of DS Senanayake. When Dudley too abrogated the very agreement he agreed unilaterally, it became established that Sinhalese leaders and politicians are born cheats and liars.

        For the murders, rapes and thuggery inflicted on the Tamils, armed opposition was the only choice left for the Tamils to defend themselves and it also dawned on the Tamils that only in a separate state the Tamils can decide their own destiny. The fact that the Tamils voted for the TNA overwhelmingly should leave no doubt whatsoever that the Tamils will ever place their trust on Sinhalese leaders, particularly the way the regime continued with the rapes and torment even after the war.

        The three UNHRC resolutions have been very scathing in blaming the regime for its excessive militarism of the North. The military governor is an alleged war criminal. What can you expect from a war criminal? The CM can’t even have his own appointed secretary. Read the UNHRC resolutions and you will understand how the regime have been playing havoc with the proper running of the NPC.

        For all the atrocities inflicted upon the Tamils, the only solution is for the Tamils to struggle for their own Eelam. There are no two ways about it, come what may.

          yeah yeah aeveryone else did this and that to us, we were like little innocent kids, we did no harm….so we took arms and blew off everyone non tamil killed any non tamil not even a baby was left for 30 years…..until we were given a good spanking………now everyone should forget one what we did…. and blame the sinhalese for stopping us killing them!

          I used to belive pre war sinhala leaders are the partry to blame, but after seeing how TNA acts, i can very well understand how the ethnic issue got to this stage. FOr this both sinhala and tamil leaders are responsible.

          I know tamils here would be going all against me, but that is understandable since you cant see the wrongs of your now leadership, how can you see those of your past?

              TNA was a LTTE proxy, is now a proxy of seperatist groups, their real aim is always finding a fight with the government. They do not cooperate with gov but play childish and cheap politics.

              TNA is a tool at the hands of the LTTE fellows.

              I personally think as we had to remove LTTE, we need to remove TNA leaders from SL political space. That is while having an acceptable government in the centre to the tamils and tamils being a part of it.

          Dear Jansee,

          Re your “Before the advent of the LTTE, before the LTTE took up arms, all the Tamil leaders pursued a path of negotiations and ultimately passive resistance”

          Does that “ALL” include Mr G. G. Ponnambalam, the founder of the All Ceylon Tamil Congress (ACTC)? GGP was educated at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge, King’s College London and St. Joseph’s College, Colombo. He was a brilliant criminal lawyer who completely destroyed the evidence given by Scotland Yard in the First case involving finger print evidence in Sri Lanka.

          How do you explain the 1939 Riots that the founder of the ACTC precipitated, by delivering a HATE SPEECH at a public meeting at Nawalapitiya?

          That was the FIRST Tamil Sinhala communal Riots of the 20th Century which tore apart a century of communal peace. Of course the Tamils were rioting amongst themselves as evidenced by the Tamil Tamil riots of 1871, 1923, 1929 and 1931.

          Re “SWB, the oxford educated PM entered into an agreement with Chelva (on behalf of the Tamils)”

          That’s what happens to secret agreements when the secret leaks out. Chelva should have known that SWB did not have the Authority to make a secret agreement on behalf of the Majority.

          Re “SWB proved that irrespective of what religion he or she belongs to, a Sinhalese is a Sinhalese no matter what and their main trade is to cheat and lie”

          Racial Profiling?

          Sinhalese would be a Sinhalese, a Tamil would be a Tamil, a Burgher would be a Burgher, a Moor would be a Moor, what else could they be?

          In Lanka, one GROUP of Tamils Lorded over another Group of Tamils that was 5 times larger than them. This was not only during ancient times but even decades after independence.

          This small group of Tamils had economic control over the Tamil population as they owned land and the means of production.

          They prevented the larger group from getting any Education. Closed ALL avenues of Upward Social Mobility. Prevented territorial Mobility by confining them to designated Ghettos. Prevented them from quenching their thirst at a public well other than at designated unkempt wells. Prevented them from covering the upper torso to distinguish the Rulers from the ruled (women were not allowed to wear a blouse and had to cover their breasts with the Saree worn crisscross across the chest, Jewelery was prohibited, men were bare bodied). Drummers were prohibited at any function. Prevented them from practicing Religion. Their employment was decided even before birth (it was hereditary, a scavengers progeny would remain scavengers for eternity with no way out). They had to work as slaves without any human dignity or a proper wage. This powerful minority group of Tamils even connived to subvert the Prevention of Social Disabilities Act of 1957 until it was amended in 1971.

          Does that mean ALL TAMILS are inhuman Slave drivers and will do anything to safe guard their privileged position?

          Some are, most are not.

          Re “For the murders, rapes and thuggery inflicted on the Tamils, armed opposition was the only choice left for the Tamils to defend themselves”

          But for the fact that a near million refused to take up arms in the North and decided to flee instead. While half the Tamil population of Lanka decided to live amongst the Sinhalese in the South, as far away from Prabahkaran as possible.

          Result, Tens of thousands of Child Soldiers (9 years onwards).

          Re “….. and it also dawned on the Tamils that only in a separate state the Tamils can decide their own destiny”

          Hmm can you explain this speech from you Leader in 1922?
          That’s long time before even independence!

          “…namely to keep alive and propagate these precious ideals throughout Ceylon, Southern India and the Tamil Colonies, to promote the union and solidarity of Tamilakam, the Tamil Land. We should keep alive and propagate these ideals throughout Ceylon and promote the union and solidarity of what we have been proud to call Tamil Eelam”

          The FIRST Ethnic based Party in Lanka is the Ceylon Tamil League formed by Sir Ponnambalam Arunachelem in 1922! His vision was to establish a Tamil Akam (Tamil Kingdom) that embraced South India, Tamil Colonies and Lanka. The above quote is from a speech he gave to his party membership at its second General meeting.

          Your leaders were not thinking of an inclusive Lanka but were willing to commit even treason to achieve their narrow objectives. A Minority with a massive Majority complex.

          Tamil Eelam was born in the minds of the Tamil leadership long before 1921. It was articulated in 1922.

          Please stop the deceptive propaganda that tears the ethnic groups apart.

              Jansee omitted the beginnings of Tamil/Sinhala Riots in modern Lanka. The idea was to cover your sins by blaming the Sinhalese.

              I reminded her of her omissions and Racist Tamil commissions. I know separatists have a hard time when the Truth gets exposure.

              Re “This guy has nothing else to say”

              Oh I have a lot of things to say and will do so when the occasion arises. Meanwhile you should try explaining that GGP had no hand in bringing Racism to Lankan Politics.

              Racist Tamils breathed life to a Dragon and now they are engulfed by it’s fire. The sad part is people like you keep on feeding that Dragon without learning from mistakes in history.

                  Re “OTC how can Jansee omit something that never happened”

                  If that were true, the 1983 riots did not happen either!

                  Then you are calling the Siva Paripalana Sabai that owns the “Hindu Organ” and it’s Editor, Mr. T. Chellappa-pillai, retired Chief Justice of Travancore and Dr Jane Russell, the British Historian are ALL Liars.

                  A prophetic Editorial comment of the Hindu Organ, June 1939

                  “A verbal bombshell dropped unwittingly by a Tamil politician at Nawalapitiya appears to have set the South on fire……. A slander against a community by an individual, though unintended, is inexcusable…”

                  Continuing it said: “Communal differences, though there existed hardly any, during the time of the last generation of leaders, have now been multiplied and intensified, thanks to the hot-heads and irresponsible talkers in the country who care more for the plaudits of the mob than for the welfare of the people. Ceylon today, is seething with petty problems which have been created by thoughtless gas-bags, and which threaten to poison the peaceful conditions in the country….”

                  It concluded by saying: “Let us hope that wise statesmanship will prevail among leaders who should realize the imperative need for the welding of the communities into a Ceylonese Community for the political and economic salvation of the country. The writing on the wall is too clear to be ignored.”

                  Dr Jane Russell referring to the same incident states “He mistakenly believed the audience to consist entirely of Muslims and Indian Tamils and was therefor rash enough to claim that: “the greatest Sinhala kings were Tamils. The Tamils had an unparallelled history and an unequaled traditional culture” where as the Sinhalese were a nation formed by the hybridization of a small class of people from North India they were a nation of hybrids without a history” Communal politics under the Donoughmore Constitution, Page 148

                  This is proof how Brazenly the Tamil Separatists like yourself Lie when those who witnessed may still be amongst the living.

                  What a fool you are, to attempt contradicting first hand reporting from a Tamil and A British Historian whose book is freely available to the world even today.

              Rajash

              Read this article by K. D. G. Wimalaratne, former Director of the National Archives.

              Just forget this OTC who is an active member of lunatic fringe.

              G. G. Ponnambalam — An Appreciation — a reply
              K. D. G. Wimalaratne

              An appreciation of G.G. Ponnambalan (Snr) by Appaturai Vinayagnamoorthy which appeared in the Sunday Island of 2nd February 2003, Pg.16 contained factual errors, as well as distortions and misinterpretations of history.

              In an appreciation of a great leader of the Tamil community, it is evident and accepted that a writer is inclined to emphasize on the great achievements of his leader. However, to distort and misinterpret certain facts of history with an emotional, ethnic flavour would be harmful at a time where the ethnic conflict needs a reasonable and a gentleman’s accord.

              Firstly, the All Ceylon Tamil Congress was not inaugurated on 29th August 1944, but on 29th October, 1944 at the Colombo Town Hall. The oldest Tamil Party in Sri Lanka had been identified as the All Ceylon Tamil Congress. However, the Ceylon Indian Congress led by K. Natesa Iyer is to be considered as the first Tamil Party in Sri Lanka.

              Mr. Vinayagnamoorthy in his appreciation of G.G. Ponnambalam has misinterpreted the formation of Sinhala Maha Sabha by S. W. R. D. Bandaranaike. The Sinhala Maha Sabha was inaugurated by Mr. Bandaranaike in 1935 and revived in 1936 to unite the low-country and upcountry Sinhalese who where divided by Governors Manning and Caldecotte 15.08.1921. He invited the Tamil Mahajana Sabha,to join hands with the Sinhala Maha Sabha in order to fight the British as one unit. G.G. Ponnambalam never started the All Ceylon Tamil Congress as an answer to Sinhala Maha Sabha. All Ceylon Tamil Congress was started nine years after the Sinhala Maha Sabha to galvanize Tamil opinion in Jaffna and Vavuniya for Tamil rights and to challenge the older Tamil leadership in the north.

              As Ponnamblam Ramanathan and Arunachalam fell into the plot of Governor Manning’s divide and rule tactics, G. G. Ponnamblam was also taken for a ride by Governor Caldecotte’s by his division of communities in a colony, for the delaying tactics of granting independence.

              In 1937 the All Ceylon Tamil Congress presented their views for an united Sri Lanka in the following manner.

              “The conception of corporate unity in the minds of the Sinhalese is in the nature of a merger and absorption of the minority in the majority. A just and more correct idea of an united Ceylon is that of a rich and gorgeous many coloured mosaic set and studded with the diversities of communal consciousness within a glorious one minded solidarity”.

              The Pan-Sinhala ministry of 1936 was a tactic of D.S. Senanayake to prove that under the executive committee system there is no guarantee for the minorities of their safeguards, as the British rulers thought that this executive system was good enough for Sri Lanka in managing their affairs while giving security and representation to minority members in the Board of Ministries to circumvent British tactics of delaying a cabinet form of government with collective responsibility for Sri Lanka, Prof. C. Suntheralingam was invited to use his mathematical skills by D.S. Senanayake. Senanayake did not want to persist with Pan Sinhala against the rising fears of the minorities.

              Quoting the speech of G. G. Ponnambalam in the State Council in 1939 further complicates matters in a period where a solution to the ethnic problem is being pursued. It is futile to argue and conclude who came or lived first in this island. It is like trying to find out what came first, the chicken or the egg. I think this is not the time for such silly arguments.

              The “fifty -fifty” campaign of the Tamils did not originate from G. G. Ponnambalam, although it has been attributed to him. It was a campaign returning to the electoral system of the 1920’s – the Manning constitution. This was in fact no more than a slogan devised by G. G. Ponnambalam in 1937. “50: 50” did not always mean an equal division of seats between the Sinhalese on the one hand and minorities on the other- what G. G. Ponnambalam originally asked for was a ratio of 13.7 Sinhalese seats to Tamil, to be awarded on a territorial and geographical basis. It amounted to a very considerable weightage in favour of the Sri Lankan Tamils and G. G. Ponnambalam advanced the historical precedent of 2:1 ratio. Caldecotte did not favour the “50:50” demand and subsequently the Tamils changed it to 60:40. The Governor opposed any form of ethnic based representation and the 50:50 demand was dropped. The “50:50” demand lacked both conviction and political viability.

              The writer also connects the Tamil separatist cry to the Sinhala Only Act of 1956. It is very clear from the history of Sri Lanka, that the separation of the Tamil community began with the Manning Constitution in 1920 when Ponnambalam Arunachalam and Ramanathan left the Ceylon National Congress, as a result of Governor Mannings tactics to divide the majority communities and delay the granting of independence to this country.

              The Sinhala Only Act of No. 33 1956 was misread by the Tamil minority during that time and used to mislead the Tamil population on emotional and ethnic grounds without understanding the majority’s aspirations as understood by the other minorities such as Muslims, Malays and Burghers of that era.

              The operation of the language policy in other developing countries at that time, such as India, China, Malaya, Singapore was not appreciated and recognized by the Tamil leaders, such as G.G. Ponnambalam of Sri Lanka.It is the hour that a Sri Lankan nation has to be built, and the people given, shelter, clothing, water, electricity and help a struggle launched for the alleviation of poverty and the advent of prosperity of our motherland. This is not a time to indulge in any sort of ethnic nationalism. The call should be “unity in diversity” and not “disunity in similarity”.

He must have read one of those SPUR article and continues to say the same thing again again. The book has lot more about Sinhala/Buddhist racism than any other racism. He is fond of quoting 1939 riots, the riot had nothing to do with race, it was a trade union dispute which went out of hand.

                  I will make the book available to you in the next few days once I get an forthright response from OTC (which I doubt). If he says he hasn’t read it then its fine with me. The problem with these liers are that they think they could right any damn thing and get away with it.

                  Once you read the book you will see how these damn liers pick and chose words and phrases to lie through their teeth. Commission and commission do not seem to matter. OTC is a habitual lier of the worst kind.

                  One thing these buggers must realise is that there are concerned people who are keenly watching what all of us say here. Those people are highly worried by these lies (presented as history) than the bust up between two stupid peoples.

                    Should read:

                    “Commission and commission do not seem to matter.”

                    Should read:

                    I have concerns regarding what people write too. We could minimise this by not writing personal comments. Obviously what look like a truth to sinhalese may be interpreted as a deceitful statement by minorities. ‘Sinhala only act’ could be a good example.

                    I would have expected an intelligent commentator to be humble when he/she comments on a topic beyond his/her competence. Unfortunately this forum does not seem to generate such commentators. In addition We have commentators digressing from the main theme.

                    Hopefully we should have better comments rather than distortion of ancestry, genetics, archaeology,anthropology and political history

These concerned people whom you are referring to should not sit and read everyhting on this blog, but protest thier concern of actually what is happeing to places like keerimalai.

            off-the-cuff:

            If you admit SWB cannot or shouldn’t have been trusted, then Chelva did make a mistake of trusting a cheat and a liar. Well, that game had gone on and is the same story with MR. MR has been dishing out umpteen promises as President but those turned out to be empty promises. That is the worth of your president, a cheat and liar to the core.

            if it is what we write that has caused racial and religious strife, then it is a joke that buddhist rowdies went on rampage burning and destroying places of worship of other religions. Sinhalese are racists and greedy to the core and they want everything, including the property belonging to other races. And it doesn’t stop there, they also want women of other men, rape them and murder her partner. It is a sick race, that’s for sure.

            You think the Sinhala society is not dogged by the same social ills. Just take a look at advertisements for prospective grooms/brides. This is something that has bedeviled many societies and it is wrong but you must wash your head if you say this only affects the Tamils.

            Parasites are parasites, whatever the stripe. The North/East belongs to the Tamils. From the Sinhala Only Act to the republican constitution, do the acts of the Sinhalese look inclusive? Of course, parasites have no shame in stealing the properties of others but being inclusive should be a two-way street. Now all that talk is useless as the enmity and trust between the two has reached a point of no return.

            Tamils were treated to a “fanfare” during the 1983 riots. Gotabaya packed off the Tamils from Colombo to the North. To say that the Tamils live in amity in the south is a big lie. They are living in fear, that’s the plain truth.

          It will have no affect on either the persons or the entities listed. Let the govt make a fool of themselves.

          Re “Revive the LTTE is the latest pet project of Gota and his sibling and not of the diaspora”

          You may be right. But the Malaysian police has arrested 3 LTTEs on 15 May 2014 alleging that they were trying to revive the LTTE at International level. All of them hold UNHCR refugee cards.

          Explains why the LTTE rump is making a big noise.

          What I write is FACTUAL and is in defense of my motherland. You and the rest of the LTTE Rump propaganda machine has found the Truth a difficult thing to handle.

              Hey Rajesh, another gopi story from land down under.

              At the end of the session a member of the audience who identified himself as a teacher of human rights at the College of Law asked about the problem of human rights in Sri Lanka.

              Former Australian foreign minister & former NSW Premier Bob Carr was quite forthright.
              He said” Despite the “Tamil narrative,” he said, there is another view. For over thirty years Sri Lanka was fighting a savage war with terrorists while the “world looked the other way.”
              The suicide bomb was invented and used in that war. If the war went the other way and Sri Lanka was divided, the North would have been run by the most vicious regime that would have been worse than Pol Pot.

              It took the US over four years to heal the wounds of their Civil War. It will take Sri Lanka much longer to get over their conflict. It is important that Australia engage with the Rajapakse government. It is an authoritarian government. But it has been re-elected twice. “

                by reinventing Gobi and LTTE Gota and Mahinda have no intention of healing the wounds of the civil war. They want to prolong the civil war so tha t Sinhala modayas will continure to vote for them and they can continue to loot the country.

                Even Austrlia looked the other way when the civil war was going on in Sri Lanka. Their interest in Sri Lanka came after the end of the war., not to heal the wounds of the war, but they want to stop boat people , both Tamils and Sinhala form coming to Austrlia.

                  If you are against reviving LTTE why did you fund LTTE for 30 years, until gover eliminated them?

                  If youre bothered about ‘healing the wounds of civil war’ why dont you own upto the funding of LTTE by you people, and accept that YOU are the reason for death, massacres and continuation of war?

                      I have talked about that before. It is not a question of why LTTE emerged it is how LTTE continued for 30 years.

                      That 30 years was a period of brutalities, violence , terrorism where people of all ethnicties suffered, especially tamils. After having funded it for 30 years seeing and experiencing brutialities (of which you were not victimized) you still kept funding it.

                      You (or tamil diaspora at large) funded LTTE seeing how they massacred ppl in border villages, suicide bombs, child soldiers, abduction of children (like Boko Haram), aranthalawa, kathankudy, and burning alive otehr tamils calling them traitors. You supported LTTE through out all these things and now you cant say we did it because of swabhasha panatha. we did it because of policies of politicians 40 years back.

                      You cant evade that responsibility. You owe a lot. The excuse you give of so called policies NEVER justify LTTE terrorism. If you do you are equally criminal as the LTTE

              Dear Rajash,

              Re “This is another Gopi story.

              This story is from Malaysia and those who arrested them were Malaysian security. Hence your Gopi excuse is Lame. Rather it gives credence to the Gopi issue.

              Re “Hmmm interesting. 3 Tamils who were allegedly UNHCR refugees are allegedly involved in reviving the LTTE world wide”

              The IGP of Malaysia said the 3 Tamils HOLD UNHCR Refugee cards, there was nothing alleged about it.

              If the Malaysian authorities uncover more evidence through these LTTE suspects, the SL Listing will start to bite in Malaysia as well.

              Re “Remember KP was also abducted from Malaysia”

              Of course KP was also abducted from Malaysia. The current arrests indicate that LTTE has been active in Malaysia and is using Malaysia as an operational base for a long time. Thayappararaja the LTTE computer wiz kid, who died while in custody of the SL forces, rose from the dead in India.

                OTC – “Hence your Gopi excuse is Lame. Rather it gives credence to the Gopi issue”>> But here is the Gobi Story, it’s hilaarious >>>>>Gobi is a figment of imagination and he was hidden under Jeyakumari’s bed by Gota. The Sri Lankan army was then tipped off that “Gobi” who is dangerous and armed and who have been sent by the Tamil Diaspora, god only know from which country, revive the LTTE, is hiding under Jeyakumari’s bed. A police officer (kostha?) was sent UNARMED to look for this “DANGEROUSLY ARMED” Gobi under Jeyakumari’s bed. When the police officer bent to look under the bed, more or less the police officer was prostrate , and perhaps may have popped the question “putha !oyaage namma mokatha?” Apparently Gobi fired at him from under the bed. How many of you have played hide and seek during your young days and hidden under a bed? You know there is hardly any room for one to turn around under a bed!!!. But Gobi was able to take aim and fire at the unarmed officer.

                Then Gobi escaped in to the jungle with two other revivers of LTTE. Then the army deployed about 1,500 army personnel with machine guns, armoured cars, trucks etc etc to catch these three guys. The heavily armed soldiers encircled the small area to catch these guys alive. However with all these manpower and armoury the so called Gobi and his two accomplish tried to escape. The 1500 army were not able to overpower them, so they shot them dead. What a story. The imaginary family members of these three guys then identified the bodies and the army the buried the bodies apparently. The army decided not to parade the bodies as they usually do in a triumphant manner.
                DBSJ is so excited that he has something to write about, he is serialising this episode in a three part series. Even the last days of the war did not excite him as much as this one.
                The upshot of the story is Jeyakumari is in prison and her daughter is in orphanage. The regime’s objective is achieved, Jeyakumari in prison for hiding Gobi, her daughter sent away to an orphanage. They won’t be there to protest any more when in future foreign dignitaries visit NE. Furthermore the regime is sending a chilling message to everyone whose kith and kin surrendered to the Sri Lankan army and now dead.

      He is elected by the Tamils and he represent them. Whats your problem?

            Sampanthan is so naive to ask anything from the Rajapakse crooks thinking they will oblige. It’s crazy. They even trying to stop a South African delegation coming to Sri Lanka to mediate the ethnic problem. What their intention is to bleed and choke the Tamil people until they die. Next they will do same to Muslim community.

            Only solution Sampanthan has is to go International and Diaspora communities and get their help to choke Rajapakses until they oblige to release Tamil people from Bondage.

            Rajapakse crooks know nothing other than to steal, murder and supress the weak, voiceless and helpless people.

        Hello and thank you for attending the Victory Parade with Lion flag last week!

        “Where did the SL government find the money to pay Sampanthan?”

        Sri lankan government has found the money to pay not only Sampathan but many other Tamils in the public service including teachers, nurses and funded free education for Tamils. Regrettably many of those are ungrateful parasites.

        “Basil and Gota are foreign citizens and as foreigners what authority do they have over the life and mostly dead of people of this country?”

        Get your facts right dumnbo! Basil R is not a US citizen but a US resident, and a Sri Lankan citizen. Gothabaya is a dual citizen of US and Sri Lanka. They are not foreigners, but have all the rights as citizens. Even if they are foreigners they are considered heroes for eliminating Tamil Terrorists and handing a humiliating defeat to Tamil Diasporans. We need them to do the same again if ever the ugly face of Racism and Terrorism surface. I let you be the moron who can read out the Scoreboard to avoid disputes disputes with the arithmatic.

      Tamil diaspora have family and roots in Sri Lanka. The whole reason there is a Tamil diaspora of Ceylon Tamils is because of the war. This diaspora can help alleviate the poverty and misery amongst Tamils. SO why shouldn’t Sampananthan speak up for them.

      Why aren’t people asking GOTA and Basil to resign since they are either American citizens or American Green Card holders. Sampananthan does not have US green card or citizenship in any other country.

        I beg to differ, most of the tamils I know left for economic reasons. most of my batchmates- 95% tamil and about 40-50% Sinhala left after getting free education in SL. I do not know whether they supported the LTTE or not while aboard but truth is tamils like Sinhalese benefited frm free education paid by SL tax payers are now working for 1st world economies without any guilt. I think they should be taxed all of them….. like Rudyard Kilping said “I owe much to the land that grew and more the life that fed”. if they had been born citizens of the countries that they are now working in – to get the education they got – 4yr specialised Medical/Engineering degrees they would be owing their respective govt.s something to the tune of US$40k in student loans, which they would have, have to pay back to the government while working.. how lucky are they to get that kind of education absolutely free ? never seen or heard anyone thanking the SL gov. here or anywhere else.

          The high caste denied the low caste in every manner including a visit to Colombo and moreover a Good Education.

          First it was the Missionaries who introduced education to the lower caste and then of course sinhala Father of free education C.W.W.Kannangara whereby the low Caste Tamils got an education and untill now.

          These Low Caste Tamils finally turned their guns on the GOSL instead of turning it on the High Caste Tamils who denied them.

Let the Tamils go their own way and if they do, then your regime won’t have to pay RS or other tamil reps their salaries any more and there will no necessity to put up with a grumpy fool like you. In that way, the Tamils will then have to find the money to pay their elected reps. Agreed?

    For any neutral student following Lankan political developments in recent decades, it will be clear the recent GoSL notification banning several Tamil organisations abroad is aimed, either by omission or commission, at taking back by several years recent efforts by all sides to move forward. It may be recalled these gains were made with valuable support from many friendly country towards unity and reconciliation so necessary. This – not only for Lankan Tamils but for the very survival of the entire country. Like many actions of the Rajapaksa Govt this is one more hotch-potch move believed to be from the brain of Gothabaya Rajapakse to counter the oncoming action against the Rajapakses at UNHCR/Geneva and New York.
    Mr. Sampanthan clearly points out here the futility of the ban designating diaspora groups that have called for cooperation between the two feuding sides to work towards an undivided Sri Lanka.

    As usual, the Rajapakses will be forced to withdraw this flawed piece of Rajapakse legislation. Elsewhere we learn President Rajapakse, on the eve of his visit to Delhi, has ordered all Indian fishermen held to be released forthwith. What is the integrity of the Courts, the legal process and the Constitution when a single politician brazenly overrides all of them – in sheer ignorance.

      Dear Eusence,

      Then Sampanthan was the door mat of Terrorists, washing their feet, and licking their boots to absolve the sins of the SOLE Representative of Tamils, the psychopath murderer Prabahkaran.

      The concern he now shows for the LTTE Rump was not there when Prabakaran was snatching children from the arms of Tamil parents to be sacrificed at the war front. The UN said at least 200 children a month were forced to go to war during the last months alone. Even 9 year olds were not spared.

            Particular Nuisance for me a great NONSENCE is in his view that we all srilankens are treated well and tamils or other minorities have nothing to claim about them being mistreated.

            He has OFTEN been telling that to everyone perhaps showing the same colours akin to those of DJ. IN THE SAME TIME HE HAS ADDED VIEWS being not supportive to MR oligarchy.

            May be the man should be a professor in political science like self proclaimed DJ known to us. Or another brainwashed similar to the one CALLED Abhaya who is said to have close links with premates (Oranutans).

    Backlash says “It may be recalled these gains were made with valuable support from many friendly country towards unity and reconciliation so necessary.”

    What a lot of Bull Sxxt? Is that why when Sri Lanka’s President visits the UK the Paraya Tamils threaten him.

    Some Reconciliation!

      Could you explain what exactly Paraya means.

    Why is sampanthan asking for reasons for the ban?He was elected by the tamils living in srilanka,not abroad and this is none of his business.Or is it?s he playing a double game here like he did with the LTTE once.

    He has to make a firm decision,not run with the hare and hunt with the hounds at the same time.With him showing concern for a ban that has nothing to do with him but with the deadly enemies of the government,and with wiggie saying prabha is a hero,so much for the mistrust between the TNA and the government which these leaders are supposed to bridge in order to arrive at a political solution.

      shankar:

      MR and the regime are the masters in this double game. The many double games enacted and acted by them have finally caught up with them. Now, they are at the doorstep of being scrutinised for their double games.

      If you are not that stupid, you should read what he has asked. And do you know that this very question was asked by the foreign diplomats in SL when your joker professor (GL Peiris) briefed them on the proscription. And don’t be bemused – when he was asked to provide the details, this joker told them the regime is still investigating. So, even before concluding the investigations, and what is seen as clearly a knee-jerk response to the UNHRC resolution, one psychopath had made a fool of everyone. So, it is reasonable for Sampanthan to raise the issue. And if the details are available, just show the proof. Until then, don’t go around behaving like monkeys.

        jansee,as i have mentioned he has asked for the reasons for the ban.It is none of his business.He knows very well that this is a tit for tat game going on between certain diaspora and GOSL. Diaspora got the UN resolution passed and an angry GOSL is lasing out with a wild swing. Sampanthan should just keep out of the fight.In the first place it is not necessary for him too get involved in it as the diaspora are capable of looking after themselves and they will come back with another swing at the GOSL very soon.Is sampanthan going to get embroiled in this brawl or is he going to work for the tamils in srilanka who voted for him.

        As for stupidity you mention,you also must have been one of the advisors of the LTTE at one time as the diaspora were.heh,heh.

      Isn’t it funny that Sambandan, a mere politician who represents a tiny minority in Sri Lanka tries to place himself above that great leader, Rudrakumaran, hailed as the Prime Minister of the Tamil Universe. ? What cheek.

        Dear Rajash,

        The name doesn’t mean that you wrote this.

        It’s meant to show you that you were deceived by the scum bag who tried impersonating my pseudonym.

        You should have had the Brains to compare my logo with that of my impersonator’s as the logo is assigned by CT. But THAT is something you don’t have enough of apparently.

        In addition to your proven comprehension issue, are you short on intelligence too?

        Kind Regards,
        OTC

            CT was informed when I noticed the first impersonation long ago. The Logo is the only identifier

            This was CT’s reply
            Sadly no solution for the issue. As you know the only solution is the given colour.

    I am betting the GOSL will not come up with any plausible or credible reasons for the proscription of these entities; now or ever.

      Dear Ramasamy,

      May be or may be not but as a result of the listing, funds already in Lanka will get frozen making it more difficult to revive the LTTE.

      The rush of protests indicate that the listing has had a deliterious affect on those listed.

      Kind Regards,
      OTC

        “funds already in Lanka will get frozen making it more difficult to revive the LTTE”

        If these guys want to revive the LTTE they would not have funds openly in Sri Lanka?

        Revive the LTTE is the latest pet project of Gota and his sibling and not of the diaspora.

        They want to fool the Sinhala elctroate so that the Regime can stay in power perpetually.

        The regime is succeeding in fooling the people like OTC, Sach, Vibushana, Abhya, Shiv.

          For your information, i havent voted and will not vote this govern, but i am perfectly capable of understanding the defence requirements of this country.

          I see many tamils saying ban is a foolish tactic by gov. Then why do you ask the gov to lift it.
