Two State Solution – Tamil And Sinhala People

By Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran

Two State Solution Eminently Compatible With Interests Of Tamil And Sinhala People!

Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran

New Year should be critical year of changes in the freedom struggle!

Sri Lanka to be isolated further in the international arena!

Just as the world is welcoming with hope and aspiration the dawn of the New Year of 2013, it gives me immense pleasure to extend my New Year wishes to the people of Tamil Eelam, those in Tamil Nadu and indeed all Tamils living across the globe.

In my New Year message a year ago, I stated that 2012 would turn out to be an important year for all of us.

The year 2012 did in fact emerge as the year in which the Government of Sri Lanka began to encounter challenges and pressures in the international arena.

The US led resolution pertaining to Sri Lanka that was passed at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva in March 2012 with the support of India was described by many as the first major political and diplomatic setback for Sri Lanka in the international arena since May 2009.  Despite being so far from meeting our expectations, this resolution has pushed Sri Lanka to the centre of international attention in terms of accountability for all of its crimes.

I also stated in 2012 that it was important for our people in the homeland to undertake direct political action, and I assured that the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) was committed to act in the international arena in solidarity with those in the homeland. It heartens us all to note that such direct political actions have been spearheaded in our homeland in 2012.

It is our earnest desire that 2013 also becomes a critical year of changes in the struggle of the Eelam Tamil Nation.

We should take effective measures this year in terms of isolating Sri Lanka further in the international arena.

The struggle by the people in the homeland against the genocidal actions of the Sinhala State should be intensified this year.

It is unavoidable that this year will also refresh in our collective memory the tragedy of thirty years ago in the form of the pogrom of July 1983. The July 1983 pogrom and the May 2009 genocide in Mullivaaikaal stand as stark and bloody reminders of the fact that the Tamil Nation can never live together with the aggressive Sinhala forces.

So it behooves us in TGTE to galvanize the support of the international community for a two state solution as the only option for the national conflict in the island of Sri Lanka and this will be our main political program for 2013.

I wish to reiterate on this New Year day the same message I gave out on the 2002 Martyrs Day, namely, that the two state solution will be eminently compatible with the interests of the international States, and one that will be conducive to the interests of the Sinhala people also.

The only resolution to the people of Tamil Eelam, who are a Nation that is subject to genocide by the Sinhala State, would be the establishment of an independent and sovereign state of Tamil Eelam in order to protect their physical survival. They are entitled to this through the realization of the right to self determination on the basis of being a people, and on the basis of remedial rights due to them under international law.

Such a two state solution is not at all contrary to the interests of the West, India or any other State. It is in fact compatible with the interests of all those States.

In this connection, it is important to recognize that the Sinhala State is deeply entrenched as a unitary state and is in no mood for considering any kind of reforms. Any proposals for power sharing and decentralization only remain in the realms of fantasy and are no more than just waste of time.

The two state solution has the potential to make way for the Tamil people to live as friendly neighbors with the Sinhala people. But successive rulers in Sri Lanka, through the use of a virulent form of racism, have continued to obtain the support of the Sinhala masses for their anti-democratic actions against the Tamils. In their efforts to subjugate the Tamils, the Sinhala rulers are oppressive of the democratic rights of the Sinhala people as well. It is time that the Sinhala people realized that their support for Sinhala regimes that continue aggression and genocidal actions against the Tamil people amounts to placing shackles on themselves. This is amply demonstrated by the blatant violation of democratic rights of Sinhala people by the Mahinda Rajapaksa regime today. Until the Sinhala nation realizes that a resolution of the national question requires the recognition of the Eelam Tamil people as a nation, the Sinhala people will not be liberated.

With the aims of strengthening the justifications for the two state solution, mobilizing the Tamils around the globe towards building up the soft power of the Eelam Tamil Nation, and formulating the strategies of the Tamil Eelam struggle in juxtaposition with the evolving geopolitical situation in the Indian ocean, the TGTE is organizing an international conference in the US on May 9-11, 2013. It gives me great pleasure to state that the ‘Tamil Eelam Freedom Charter’ will also be promulgated at this conference pursuant to the resolution passed in the TGTE’s 4th Parliamentary Sessions held recently in London, UK.

I am also pleased to announce that, as a way of intensifying the political dialogue between our government and the people, we will launch an open telephone line on 14 January, 2013, with the international dial-in number +1 (212) 537-4054.

Let us move forward unceasingly in our action with the determination that the New Year will enable us to take effective moves in our journey towards liberation!

The Thirst of Tamils is Tamil Eelam.

*Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran, Prime Minister, TGTE

    Dear Mr Rudrakumaran,

    The Tamils have lost everything since they have allowed India to equip the criminals with arms to fight for their freedom. The genuine freedom fight was hijacked by India for its own interests. Prabhakaran was a criminal, wanted by the Sri Lankan police for smuggling and murder chrages. The Sri Lankan government could not put Prabhakaran in jail, because India gave refuge to him and made sure he becomes an incurable cancer for the Tamils and Sinhalese. India’s refuge made Prabhakran as one of the most dangerous man in the world. Nelson Mandela wanted to take up arms to fight for his people’s freedom, but fortunately the South African government put him in jail. This has changed everything, it made Nelson Mandela to choose non violence method for his people’s freedom. The South African jail made Nelson Mandela as a wise leader. Today the South Africans have their freedom, at the same time Nelson Mandela became one of the most respected leader in the world. There is no comparison between Mandela and Prabhakaran or Ghandi and Prabhakaran.

    India created the Tamil armed groups to keep Sri Lanka under its wings. However, India also understood that letting the Tamil armed groups grow beyond its control would be detrimental to India. This is the reason Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi got a very good political package for the Tamils under Indo Sri Lanka agreement. Unfortunately the LTTE did not see what Rajiv Gandhi did, because of the Tamil Diaspora. The 2002 ceasefire agreement also broken by the LTTE.
    I am well aware that Prabhakaran would not have fought against the Indian government without the Tamil diaspora’s back-up. I also know that Prabhakaran would not have broken the ceasefire agreement with the Sri Lankan government without the Tamil diaspora’s back-up. I want to know who have been advising to you. Clearly, the diaspora is getting wrong ideas from the people who are expert in dividing others. If you believe those people will help you to get Tamil Eelam then you can believe anything. In Libya only few hundreds died under Muammar Gaddafi, but the West intervened. In Sri Lanka thousands have died in 2009, but the West did not intervene, because they know very well about the LTTE, and your advisers only interested to destabilise Sri Lanka, they are not interested in two state solution or united Sri Lanka. They do not want the Tamils and Sinhalese to move forward. .

    The Western countries use the Tamil diaspora leaders to develop Western countries and to keep the Westerners on top. Otherwise the diaspora leaders will be unemployable or in prison in the Western Countries like me, Julian Assange and Bradley Manning. Why the Westerners would ever allow the Tamil diaspora to use the Western countries to develop other parts of the world? The Westerners are only 8% of the world population they have a vital interest to destabilise every community and every country to keep themselves on top forever. We know every single idea to divide, invade or rule others is conceived in England. Whether invading Asia, North America, Australasia, Africa, or Middle East, all ideas came from England. We know how important England as the nerve centre for the Westerners. The Chinese and Indians must watch carefully, the West can give wrong ideas to the Asian countries to create a chaos in Asia, in order to undermine the billions of Asians. Whether it was the 17th century or current 21st century the Britain’s greatest strategy is “divide and conquer”. As emerging powers we must be very mindful of their dirty trick. In the 19th century the Germans were advancing their military and technology. The British were scared of the Germans, so they applied divide and conquer strategy to undermine the Germans. The British offered a homeland to the Jews in the Middle East, in order attract the six hundred thousand Jews in Germany. Due to this, thousands of intellectual German Jews moved to England and worked closely with the British. During the First World War the Jewish scientists who got their education in Germany helped the British to make ammunition to fight against the Germans. During the 1st World War Hitler was a soldier, and well aware what the German Jews were doing against his country. Hitler’s bitterness started to grow against the German Jews, eventually he decided to eliminate the Jews and fallen into the trap of the British. Winston Churchill was a statesman, but Hitler was a general and did not see was was coming. Hitler had an opportunity to get the world behind him by exposing the British atrocities in Asia, North America, Australasia and Africa, but he failed utterly. Hitler also fallen into the trap of British propaganda “communism is evil”. This was the reason, Hitler decided to invade Russia, even though he made an agreement with Russia that he will not invade Russia.

    People like us who are enlightened and committed to bring a change can’t even get a job. We are isolated by the Western governments. The propaganda against us are shocking, even my family members, relatives, and friends believe the Westerners more than me. The Tamils are always divided, in order to full fill their own self-centered lives. We all know how the Tamil armed groups fought and destroyed each other, the TNA has its own agenda, the TGTE has its own agenda, World Tamil Congress has its own agenda. They all concern about being leaders, they are not concern about the Tamils. I am ashamed to call myself a Tamil, this is why I have chosen to be single than getting married to a Tamil. I am not a supporter of the Rajapaksa brothers, but I never seen such a unity among the Tamils as I seen among Rajapaksa brothers. My brothers and relatives are happy to sell myself to the Westerners as long as they are well off. My brothers did not even pass the GCE A/L, but they are well off in Canada by supporting the Westerners. They are there to keep the Westerners on top, and making sure the Tamils or Sri Lanka never move forward. Do they know what they are doing? Absolutely not, they do not have a diploma or degree, never read books, other than watching TV and follow the Westerners. They are under the firm grip of the Westerners. I will let the whole world know how the Tamils have been helping the Westerners to keep me in financial hardship and isolation from others in details, including their full names. Those are the people who gave thousands of dollars to the LTTE, but would not support me to have a website or to publish a book. I will name and shame them.

    I am a Tamil and I know how the Tamils have been treated in Sri Lanka. The British divided the Tamils and Sinhalese for their own interests, so did the Indians. The Tamils and Sinhalese have gone through lots of pain and agony for generations, due to lack of decent leadership. I have doubts about the united Sri Lanka. However, I do not support Eelam, because the Tamils are divided and they do not have good leaders, having separate country will not solve their problems. At this stage the Tamils do not need Tamil Eelam, but unity and decent leadership.

    I have attached an article to enlighten you about your advisers in detail. I also would like to hear your say about my hardships as a writer in the Western Countries.

    The inconceivable lies and cover-ups of the Western Governments

    I am a writer, but I have been facing extreme censorship and financial hardship due to my writings. I have been writing to spread awareness nationally and internationally about the Indigenous communities’ harsh life in the outback of Australia. I have been volunteering for the Indigenous communities to improve their harsh life; however, we need the world’s help to make a significant difference in their life. The Australian Indigenous communities remain the most vulnerable sectors of the society throughout Australia. Some parts of indigenous communities are worse off than the poorest African communities in the remotest regions of Africa. Australia abolished its white Australia policy in the 70’s, but its constitution continues to portraits white Australia policy. The Australian government still refuses to acknowledge indigenous people as the first inhabitants of Australia through its constitution. Four out of seven indigenous kids are damaging their brain by paint and petrol sniffing before they even get into teenage life. Australia is in Asia’s backyard, yet more attacks on Asians in Australia than in Europe and North America. Australia’s injustice was systematically engineered by the best political minds, in order to use indigenous communities’ resources without any restriction. It is very apparent that at each historical point in time, indigenous communities have suffered from a deep rooted distrust of giving practical effect to their rights, and the idea of justice. Among Australia’s elite today, there is a habit of blaming indigenous communities for their harsh lifestyle in order to hide the Australia’s injustice. The lack of justice is affecting all citizens; especially it is affecting white Australians ethically. This deficit of justice has impacted the indigenous communities adversely throughout many generations; resulting in physical and psychological torture, enforced separations from their family members, even death. “Most importantly, this phenomenon has been manifested not only during the British colonization, but also in the present”. Due to the Australian government’s injustice in the outback and detention centres, I wrote many letters to the federal and state ministers about their awful treatment of Indigenous people in the outback; and refugees in the detention centres. Due to my writings, I was threatened by the government intelligence members. I was warned that if I continued to lobby for indigenous people and refugees they would find a way to connect me with drug trafficking or terrorism. I was banned from a university in Australia in 2004, while I was making students aware of Australia’s harsh treatment of its Indigenous people and refugees. When I started to make awareness internationally, the Australian government not only stopped me from getting a job, but they even stopped me from selling my house, which led to a file for bankruptcy. The Australian government also stolen my passport, cancelled my citizenship, and threatened to throw me in a detention centre as an illegal immigrant. I wrote to the United Nations, and the Canadian and New Zealand High Commissions about this barbaric action. Due to the international pressure, the Australian government had decided to reinstate my name in the citizenship database. Finally, I received a new passport and moved to Canada under the skill migration program to live a normal life; and also to have the freedom of opinion and expression to carry on my writings to promote human rights.

    However, after four years living in Canada, I found that Canada does not practice what it preaches to the developing countries, in terms of democracy. The ideology and histories of Australia and Canada are the same. I should not have moved to Canada. Nevertheless, while I was in Canada I have read hundreds of political books and gained extensive knowledge of North American history and politics. Canada also treats its First Nation People badly; and the Canadian government also feels uncomfortable about my writings. Canada allows its First Nations to live in their lands, but refuses to give ownership to the First Nations, in order to use the resources without any restriction. This tactic allows the Canadian government to have full control of the money profited from the sale of resources. It is all about money and ruling others. They just talk about democracy and human rights to have access to the resources through the most sophisticated way. Since I landed in Canada, my emails and phone calls were closely monitored by the Canadian Security intelligence Service (CSIS). Since I began exposing Canada’s dirty democracy, the CSIS has been deliberately diverting incoming calls to voice mail and deleting the messages to keep in isolation. I have changed three cell phone companies and cell phones, but still incoming calls were getting diverted to the voice mail, but I did not get the messages. Between December 2010 and April 2011 I have applied for hundreds of jobs in Canada, including seasonal Christmas jobs. However the CSIS has been stopping all incoming calls to prevent me from getting a job. The CSIS has placed me in extreme financial difficulty. According to the UN human rights article 23, everyone has the right to work, but my right has been denied due to my writings. I was denied access to my account, since I started to expose the western countries’ dirty democracy on Facebook. Last year I was in Germany to tell the story of injustice I have experienced in Australia and Canada. However, the German government did not allow me to work in Germany to carry on my writings. Therefore, I had to apply for a political asylum. Since I had applied for a political asylum, I was forced to live in a filthy camp in Germany. Few weeks later I was forced to live with three others in a one bedroom apartment. I wasn’t allowed to work. I wasn’t allowed to leave the city without permission. I couldn’t even afford to buy a winter jacket. I never lived in this kind of condition in my life. Last January my mother had passed away in Sri Lanka, it was my duty and responsibility to be at the funeral. I requested for permission to go to Sri Lanka for the funeral, but I was told by the German immigration officer that they would not grant me permission. I was also told that if I wanted to be at the funeral then I had to withdraw my asylum, and leave Germany for good. Using my mother`s funeral to hide the dirty democracy and human rights abuses of Australia and Canada is not humane, this was pure Nazism. I withdrew my political asylum in writing, but they have refused to return my passport to attend my mother’s funeral. I called everywhere to get my passport back, but no one was willing to return it. Finally, I got my passport back on Thursday afternoon. I came to my apartment straight from the immigration office to get my luggage to catch a flight, but they have changed my apartment lock. Due to this Nazi act I could not get my luggage, and could not catch the flight on Thursday evening to attend my mother’s funeral. The funeral was on Friday morning, but I could not make it to my mother’s funeral. The German government deliberately stopped me from attending my mother’s funeral. They have enjoyed doing this to me as they have enjoyed killing millions of innocent people in the gas champers. I have experienced real Nazism while I was in Germany; therefore I left Naziland for good in March 2012.

    The Australian government must be held responsible for all of my hardships in Australia, Canada and Germany. The Australian government must understand one thing clearly; it can prolong to deal with its own people’s suffering in the outback, but can not ignore it forever. The Australian government believes that keeping me in financial hardship; and isolating me from others is the solution for what has been happening in the outback. It is simply wrong, it will backfire on Australia in due time. Regrettably, the New Zealand government will continue to support the Australian government even at the expense of democracy. Since Last June I have applied more than three hundred jobs, but I could not get any job at all. I have an Australian business degree, and have been working as an accountant in Australia. However, I could not even get a basic job in New Zealand. I have been applying for accounting roles, administration roles as well as basic supermarket checkout operator roles, but I could not get any job whatsoever. It is very obvious to me that the New Zealand government is preventing me from getting a job to stop me having a website, or publishing a book, in order to hide the Western Countries’ dirty democracy. The way they create ill stories to isolate me from others is really unbelievable and shocking. Soon as I start to get to know people, and start to keep in touch with those people via emails and mobile phone, the western intelligence members use my email account and mobile phone number to send dreadful emails and text messages to those people, in order to make them think that I am not normal. This is how they make others to avoid me in order to hide the truth. The western intelligence members also follow me wherever I go and spread lies about me, in order to keep in isolation from others. They are not keeping me in a prison cell, but in an open air prison; so they can preach democracy to others in order to rule the world. They are the masters at occupying the high ground, and translating it into great power. In their hands morality becomes a weapon, they wield to attract attention to their cause while distracting attention to the others. They make such a show of moral superiority that the others feel ashamed to disagree with them. They are free to do whatever they want, by waving their magic cards so call “democracy and human rights”. In fact, the Americans, Australians and Canadians do not even live in their own country, if that is the case then how they can talk more about democracy than others? The Spanish took parts of South America, the Dutch and Protégées took parts of South America and the Indian subcontinent, the French took Africa, and the British took most parts of the world. Hundreds of million innocent people were killed by the Westerners. More than hundred million indigenous people were killed around the world. Twenty two million Africans were killed during the slave trade. Fifty nine million Indians were killed by starvation while the British rulers were sending India’s own foods to the United Kingdom. Furthermore, more than one million people were killed in Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq. But no one was held accountable for those innocent people’s deaths. However, the British and the Americans kept the records of German Nazis’ atrocities in detail, and exposing to the world, in order to cover-up their own atrocities. The Western Countries have killed millions of innocent people, yet they present themselves as moral superiors. The Western Countries’ core focus in the Middle Eastern countries is oil, not democracy or human rights. It is all about exploiting others’ resources and keeping others under them. In fact, the British knew the meaning of democracy and human rights from the 12th century, but they never practised while killing millions of innocent people to takeover others’ homelands, in order to have plenty of resources. The Western Countries will never admit their atrocities; if they do then they can not keep themselves on the top, and fool others in the name of democracy and human rights.

    The Western governments are extremely clever in disguising their ulterior motives and their evil tricks. According to the Independent newspaper of London, Britain discussed plans to exploit Iraq’s oil reserves with some of the world’s biggest oil companies five months before it joined the United States in invading the country in 2003. Citing previously secret documents, the newspaper said at least five meetings were held between British officials and BP and Royal Dutch Shell in late 2002. BP privately said to the British Foreign Office that Iraq was “more important than anything we’ve seen for a long time.” The documents were obtained by the oil campaigner Greg Muttitt, author of the new book Fuel on the Fire: Oil and Politics in Occupied Iraq”. “Mr Blair famously said in early 2003, ‘The idea that we’re interested in Iraq’s oil is absurd, it’s one of the most absurd conspiracy theories you can imagine”. While he was saying that, there was an internal secret document reveals the British strategy to exploit Iraqi oil, and it said, “Britain has an absolutely vital interest in Iraq’s oil”. The Westerners have created Israel based on the history, and the circumstances of the Jews. However, they have refused do the same for the Australian indigenous people. We have enough tangible evidences to prove that the Australian Indigenous people were the first inhabitants of Australia more than anyone could ever prove that Israel is belongs to the Jews. Clearly, it was easier for the Westerners to create a country for the Jews on others’ homeland to have a Jewish state as “the representatives of the West”, in order to control the Middle East. However, the same people who acknowledge the Jewish state have refused to acknowledge indigenous people in their homeland. It is nothing but a double standard and dirty ethic of the Westerners. Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? Obviously, the Westerners who have refused to acknowledge Indigenous people in their homeland for centuries would not have started the Arab Spring for the benefit of the Arabs, they have an ulterior motive. The Chinese are dominating the manufacturing sector, and the Indians are dominating the service sector. The Western Countries have lost their economic dominant; therefore they are removing the Middle Eastern Regimes in the name of democracy to place the Western puppets to control the oil, in order to continue to rule the world. The Westerners are desperate to continue to rule the world, even at the expense of democracy and human rights. Whoever exposes the Westerners dirty democracy has been treated as their enemy. The American soldier Bradley Manning and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange have sacrificed their life to inform the truth to the world, in order to enhance democracy. They are heroes for exposing war crimes, and the true civilian costs of the US wars in the Middle East. However, Bradley Manning is facing all kinds of interrogation and abuses on top of solitary confinement. The government of Ecuador granted diplomatic asylum to Julian Assange, citing genuine concerns that his human rights might be violated by the US for exposing the truth. As a human being I would not do to others what the western governments and their intelligence members have been doing to me. Nevertheless, “I do not focus on the hardships that I face due to my actions that I have taken towards the injustice, but only on my dream that the injustice will turn to justice in due time.” This is my own quote, and it gives me courage and strength to carry on, no matter what circumstances or difficulties I am going through.

        It wasn’t a comment, it was letter to the leader of TGTE. I have written to him, but he didn’t reply, now I have written to him publicly. Lets see what happen. Before you call myself as “antiwestern” publish your full name, your qualifications and your political experience. People like you have no place in pbublic debate in China that is why China has moved on, but the Tamils and Sri Lanka haven’t.

          You sound very similar to our Hon. minister Wimal Modawansa who keeps on ranting and raving about western conspiracies against Sri Lanka. He has turned into a parliment jester by doing so. Do you think the leader of TGTE will bother even to read your FART? What you have written is nothing but pure rubbish not worth even to use as ass wipes.

          You sure is a SinhalaBuddhist Peter who cannot even spell his name Antony properly. Is Wimal Modawansa paying you to write all these nonsense?

            After reading this article from the leader of TGTE and his followers comments I appreciate China more than ever before. You all think you can hide behind the Westerners and do whatever you want, trust me the dragon catch up with you all in due time. The dragon will deal with you all by its tail, it does not need to use its teeth or legs.

            The Westerners ruled the Indian Subcontinent for more than 400 years, but they never done anything to eliminate the caste system. Because they know that it will eat the Indian Subcontinent and keep them under the West. The West has a lot to talk about India than China, but they won’t talk about India, because it will highlight their deliberate misleading to keep the Asians under them, plus India is not a threat to their dominant power, but China. Another victim of sexual assault in India has committed suicide after police and suspects from an influential caste pressured her to drop the case. India’s social structure could be at the heart of this tragic story, as The Hindu newspaper reported that the victim was from a low caste “untouchable” family. Meanwhile her suspected rapists come from an influential caste Hindu family. In India women are viewed as second-class citizens, and only a fundamental change in culture and attitudes to women backed up by law could protect them. New Delhi has a strong reputation as India’s rape capital, with a report from the Hindustan Times documenting more than 20 rape cases since 16th of December 2012 in the city. Victims of gang-rapes often do not come forward to the police in India for fear of shaming their families or being ignored by police. Moreover, cases are so widespread that they are rarely covered by the press. Since the news of the brutal gang rape and murder broke in December, almost 300 Delhi women have applied for gun licenses, Delhi police said. Some 1,200 more have called the licensing department to inquire how to obtain one. Hundreds turned up at the police department seeking permission to get a gun for self-defense.

            Dear Manichantheran Spencer,

            You have R. Sampanthan as a leader, then you have V. Rudrakumaran, as a Prime Minister, of TGTE. Then you have Reverend Father S. J. Emmanuel as leader for diaspora. You have too many leaders want to be a Prime Minister, but you do not have a country. Hypothetically speaking, if you get Eelam which group you will join to fight to kill other Tamils? Sampanthan’s group, Rudrakumaran’s group or Rev Fr Emmanuel’s group? By the way which group you are affiliated with? The LTTE, PLOT, TELO, EPRLF, EPDP, or EROS? If you are affiliated with any other group please let me know for my records.

            You were talking about wiping your ass with my article, well you can’t talk any intellectual matters because you do not have that much in your head to talk, this the difference between the educated and uneducated fools who always rely on the Indians and the Westerners. Thanks for you call, and please confirm your home phone number and your mobile number in Australia. Home number 61 3 9560 7126, mobile 61 414955402.

              What is this crap or nonsense you are writing assuming A Messenger and manichanthiran are the same people without any relevance to anything I have responded or commented upon in the CT to-date?

              Based on the couple of questions you have asked me over the email address I provided and your presumption question as to why I was using the names m.c.spencer and messenger and the presumptive responses you have addressed to me on CT on the false assumptions, I am beginning to wonder if your long story to VR is valid and true or just a “tall story” and trying take all of us for a ride.

              Anyway giving you the benefit of the doubt, please do respond to my email and attachment in depth without avoiding any questions that I have asked from and of you. Let’s try to sort out matters outside the public gaze in the interests of truth and fairness.

        It wasn’t a comment, it was letter to the leader of TGTE. I have written to him, but he didn’t reply, now I have written to him publicly. Lets see what happen. Before you call myself as “antiwestern” first you should read all the article, then publish your full name, your qualifications and your political experience as did. We can’t verify who you are, you may not even Sri Lankan, but trying create a drift among the Sri Lankans.

          You really are a dumb ignoramus seeking some form of recognition by hook or by crook with utterly boastful statements. Yet you are also pathetic psychotic case who needs to come with another name on CT as I forwarded every bit of our conversation to the editorial staff at CT which will be updated with this piece. Has anyone diagnosed your condition? and what are the drugs you are taking as there may better ones available that I might be able ask a medical doctor friend of mine to help you with. You are in denial and nothing can help other to rid yourself from the face of this planet.

          I ignored you, and blocked your emails. I urge you to create an email under Prabhakaran, then send all of your emails to him. When you meet him in hell he will appreciate you. I do not normally give my email address to a fool from the Indian subcontinent. I am regretting now.

          For the background and support staff at Colombo Telegraph

          Your website is being abused or misused apparently by convicts and/or law enforcement officers in disguise under false names and false email accounts. Please follow the thread of these correspondences bottom up. There is more to this correspondence if you’ll are interested then I will send the rest if not this should give you an over view of what I discovered to-day emerging from responding to what seemed a cry for help from one commenting under a fraudulent and false name and similar false email account address as well bearing the same name of Antany Peter.

          Why or what are you afraid of? this response of yours makes me suspect that you are operating under a false name and dud email account and falsely and fraudulently accusing me of such things that you really are guilty of that you don’t want me know you better or help you as your original letter on CT implied. Why don’t you come clean and be honest even if you are police officer and/or convict enlisted for dirty work for a price or under duress. The participants will also come forward to help you if you genuinely in need of it and not in a sick and paranoid state of mind due the troubles you have been through if true as claimed by you.

Surely you must know that you don’t need a website today you can do it through facebook page for no cost at all.

            Dear CT Editor and readers,

            Mr Spencer called me and left a message to contact him. He has mentioned in his message that he has commented to my article under messenger, his full name was Manichantheran Spencer, he also left his home phone number and mobile number. However, he did not recall that he already left a message about his user name on CT as messenger, but next day he denied on his email. In his first email he mentioned that he has been using about 13 to 14 pseudonyms to comment. He wanted to call me, but I told him not to contact me ever again. I have blocked his emails. He is a liar. He is a real shame for Sri Lanka and Asia, he is a typical Tamil who deny everything. Would he ever admit that the LTTE eliminated thousands of innocent people, including political leaders and intellectuals more than al-Qaeda? I bet he won’t, most of the Tamils deny this simple fact.

            I comment under my birth name, I have nothing to hide. I do not comment under any other names. As I said many times earlier I am ashamed being a Tamil or call myself a Tamil, because there are too many Manichantherans out there, they are nothing but a trouble for their own people and for the world. I am happy to stay away from the Tamils.

        Read history mate. Tamils are invaders in SL. Look at Scarborough.

        All the junk ended up there. Illiteracy is democracy in Scarborough.

        Read the amount of criminal activities Tamils are engaged in SB.

        It is too boring to many of you, including to the Tamils who call themselves as leaders. That is why the Tamils do not have anything to show after 30 years of bloody war. Many of you can’t even spell boring, including Prabhakaran. This is why the Westerners love you.

      What is good time to call you and please note my email address is mcspencer44@yahoo.com.au Please send me your email address for me to forward some of my struggles for truth fairness and justice here in Australia over the past decade. Once I establish your history and bona fides I may be able to help you financially as well.

      In the meanwhile here is a good credo for us to live by.

      IF

      If you can keep your head when all about you
      Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
      If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
      But make allowance for their doubting too,
      If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
      Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
      Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
      And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

      If you can dream–and not make dreams your master,
      If you can think–and not make thoughts your aim;
      If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
      And treat those two impostors just the same;
      If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
      Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
      Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
      And stoop and build ‘em up with worn-out tools:

      If you can make one heap of all your winnings
      And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
      And lose, and start again at your beginnings
      And never breath a word about your loss;
      If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
      To serve your turn long after they are gone,
      And so hold on when there is nothing in you
      Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!”

      If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
      Or walk with kings–nor lose the common touch,
      If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
      If all men count with you, but none too much,
      If you can fill the unforgiving minute
      With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
      Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
      And–which is more–you’ll be a Man, my son!
      –Rudyard Kipling

      Antany Peter,

      I think you are a Govt.Imposter. Your writing say it clearly. Anyway Please read my following.

      1)All the communal problems are due to ever since we got independence all the ruling politicians exploited both Sinhala and tamil people for their political gains and did not solve their political, social and economic problems.

      2)Lack of proper Education, administration, technical and political will and the inferior complex of the politicians messed up the country. They did not want both Majority and the Minority to rise up or be rich and self sufficient, and want to keep them under their submission.

      3)Corruption,greed, party politics and family dynastic politics ruined Sri Lanka.

      4)Britain saved Sri Lanka from ruling eternally by Indian Kings by occupying it. If not for British Sri Lanka could still be ruled by Indian Kings. British did not divide Sri Lanka…but united as one when it was ruled by many kings whey they invaded. Also when they gave us Independence they handed it over to Sinhalese thinking we would govern it properly and with dignity, justice for all and fair governance….but our politicians ruined it while now even looking for a foreign loan to put up a two mile road while publishing bogus figurs..

      5)India poked their finger due to Sri Lankan politicians did not listen to tamil grievences, and did not fulfill the promises they gave.

      6) Canada, USA or Australia do not look for Tamil labor to uplift their countries. There are many millions of East European, Middle Eastern, South Amrican, African and Asian highly qualified professionals trying vert hard to get in to those countries.Even Presidential siblings and Ministers children lived there.

      7)There is no need for USA or England or EU to break Sri Lanka….for what? Sri Lanka has made a shit bucket by politicians. with hungry and sick labor force and with US$ 8 Billion debt with no visible natural resources available. It is no Libya or Iraq. Infact SL is a headache for them with our uneducated crazy politicians ruling it.

      It is time to take back our country for good.

      Think before you write.

        Before you call me as “government imposter” first you must read all of my article, then publish your full name, your qualifications and your political experience as I did. Do you know why we are going nowhere? Because too many people have too much freedom to do whatever they want, like you and Prabhakaran have no political education, knowledge or experience, but want to create a country. In China you will be in jail. According to Bill Gates the Chinese Communist Party has more intellectuals than any other political party in Asia. If I ever want to become a government imposter, that will be only for China, not for the Indian Subcontinent donkeys.

          Antey Peter,

          You may have read 300 books…..Also Hitler had the biggest Library in the world with a collection of Antiques, paintings and jewlery. But his motivation and the ideology was a selfish one. So no matter what you read but if you don’t have a balanced mind with critical thinking to see through the cloud….you will never realise the truth. Take for eg. Wimal Weerawansa….who is an imposter of MARA for sathosam. Criticising west while vacationing those same countries and also send the children to study there. Similarly Vasu deva and all other so called leftists…..all bull shit greedy pi…s.

          What’s the crazy thing you talk about too much freedom…….what freedom you talk about…..when the Govt. crooks censor everything from public, trying to brainwash them. What happened to all reporters, journalists and other free media people and HR activists.
          please don’t talk Bull shit.
          Yes while West used freedom to invent new thinking, life style, technology, literature and personal talents….our politicians used their freedom to supress masses….without allowing them to bring out their talents. The politicians kept masses always under their feet under submissive state due to their inferior complex and to control and manupulate for their selfish political gains. Not for peoples and societies good.

          Surprise how you know about me, more than I know myself.Any keep writing….and we will judge your mind.

          So is it the Chinese Communist party intellectuals that MARA family is immtating and following? ….I think so…as you say.crazy fools.

          I am no imposter of anybody but look at things as they are.

          Therefore stop reading fiction and start to live with people and society. You could learn more that way.

          MARA’s family dynasty already started to collapse…..and collapsing very fast.

          Remember me to this day…today what I said when it start to unfold in near future.

          Good luck.

            If you have guts publish your full name, qualifications and political experience. Why are hiding under Sinhala name? Who are you? Are you a fan of the people who divide others? Are you a Westerner, but fooling others as Sri Lankan to bring the LTTE back? Even MR goes, the Sri Lankan policies won’t change as you hope, because the Sri Lankans are tired of entertaining the Indians, the Westerners and the Lankan diaspora.

        Mahela,

        I think you are correct in your partial diagnosis of this so-called Antany Peter as a Govt imposter. Based on some of the interactions I have had with him in last couple of days as copied above. He is also an apparent schizophrenic, rabid, fanatical Sinhala Buddhist imposter masquerading with a neutrally sounding false and fraudulent name to mislead us.

        He is a thoroughly dishonest and an untrustworthy person. After this experience I am wondering as to how many other crooked scoundrels like this are commenting on this CT website. That henceforth I will be only reading the comments of about 5 people mostly if not all those with their own truer identity and mildly perusing and skipping off the rest of the other scum bags who are hell bent on wasting our time for them to have mini orgasms of false achievement out of their deluded stupidity fooling themselves and some unsuspecting reader.

    “Where did you get the information?” My friend, he calls himself
    Patali Champika. Have you heard anyone else having this name in
    Sri Lanka. This is the giddy limit for even a notorious fraud.

        Thanks Kapuraala

        I have already responded to her comment elsewhere in this forum.

        Living with stupid Sinhalese and stupid Tamils has caused us confusion and conflict.

        Therefore I demand both people to return to their ancestral homeland, India.

          Actually even in the whole of the indian subcontinent they have aboriginal groups similar to you. They are known as the Adivasis:

          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adivasi

          So using your logic why don’t you tell 92% of people in countries like India and Nepal to get out and vacate for their aboriginal groups, why do you just pick on sri lanka for.

          The point i am trying to make is that people like you are native to the whole indian subcontinent and if you are feeling that brave you should claim the whole indian subcontinent, not just sri lanka. Then i will support you.

            I know all Sri Lankies are stupid. Then again stupids always want to confirm what we already know by their thoughts, words and actions. Your comment is one example.

            This island once belonged to my ancestors and I was born and bred here. I can only fight for my people while supporting my cousins all over the world, including India and Australia.

            My moral support is always there in their pursuit to preserve their identity and their land.

              I have no problem with my fellow Athivasis.

              They can live here because this is their land too.

              I want the Kallathoni Sinhalese and Tamils to vacate my island before you start another round of blood letting.

              When you go please take your Tamil brethren with you. Look at the heritage, your people never stop fighting over our ancestral land.

              How soon can you leave? Remember your long lease in my land expires soon.

        GamaRaala,

        Writing anonymously from some ghetto, this stupid Vedda barge in everywhere and act frivolously to make silly demands and ask useless questions to show he is an intellectual giant.

        This bugger should take a cue from that writer Antany Peter on how to help aboriginals if he really wants to help is people. Ney, this bugger is an impediment to progress of all Veddas here. I shall ask his chief about the mindset of this Vedda when I visit him.

    The best solution is federalism either on the Canadian or American model. It is useless to talk of the past. It is time to realize that Federalism is not separation. It is a form of government within a central government. Nothing went wrong in America, Canada, Switzerland and India having a Federal government. The Sinhalese and Tamils have become stupids fighting among themselves. It is time to realize the losers and beneficiaries. Sinhalese and tamils lost their lives. The Muslims never lost their lives except they were chased out from the Northern province. But on the other hand, having won the battle, the Sri lankans are experiencing the after-effects of the war. The problem that continued for almost thirty years cannot be easily solved overnight. Rehabilitation takes some time. In those good years (prior to 1970s) I was just thinking how we Sinhalese and Tamils moved among ourselves. Even in the cricket teams we were friends and had funs and politicians and members of the Armed Forces also were so friendly. But today the short-sightedness of the politicians led everyone to shed tears. The beneficiaries were the Muslims. I will give example – the chicken that were supplied to the Armed Forces were Muslims. They pump in about 2 kilos of water (not pure water) inside the dressed chicken and when they are placed in the deep freezer it has an addition weight or 2 kilos and the price per chicken is determiedn together with the additional 2 kilos. What was surprising is that the Ministers who are in charge of food supplies also get a massive commission in offering the tender to the Muslims. Similarly as regarding the position of housemaids, the agents are Muslims. These poor Sinhalese girls change their names to Muslim names and were sent to Middle-East countries. But it is a tragedy that hundreds of bodies are sent to Sri Lanka with the compensation. These poor Sinhalese are deprived of receiving the compensation, because those are in Muslim names and the Agents finally receive it illegally. Likewise they are beneficiaries in so many fields. Latest is the scandal (results) that took place at the Law College Extrance Examination. Atleast now, both the Sinhalese and Tamils should realize about reconciliation and avoid harsh languages. It is the opportunists at the expense of our differences, become beneficiaries. It is time for the Armed Forces to stretch a friendly arm towards the Tamils and restore the past glorious days.

    My only concern is come 11th January and with UPFA majority in the parliament, President MR has a possibility of winning the CJ impeachment with a simple majority.

    If that happens….what kind of actions both MR and the CJ will take…….

    I am pretty sure while MR is waiting impatiently to kick CJ out….where it will be a big blow to all of us who are looking for our justice through CJ…… Madam CJ will try her best to hold onto her position as she has promissed before, WHERE SHE WILL NEVER BOW DOWN WITHOUT A FIGHT, AND THIS COULD DEFINITELY LEAD TO VIOLANT MEANS.

    INFACT NOBODY INCLUDING OPPOSITION PARTIES, JSC, BAR ASSOCIATION, TRADE UNIONS, CLERGY, PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATIONS AND ALSO WE CITIZENS DO NOT ALLOW MARA DICTATOR TO OCCUPY JUDICIARY AND THE SUPREME COURT WITHOUT A FIGHT.

    1)IF MR use strong arm methods and use violant methods, like Mervin Silva, Wimal Weerawansa, Basil Rajapakse and the media have already mentioned and try to chase CJ and occupy SC building……….what steps the opposition parties, trade unions, clergy, professional body, FUTA and we the citizen could do to save CJ and the Supreme Court……….

    2)Can we ask for UN, CW, US, EU and other Asian countries to come to our help……….

    3)Can the opposition parties ask UN,EU and Asian countries for trade sanctions, cease loans and incentives to Govt, impose a travel ban to all Govt. ministers, forces and MARA goons.

    4) Can we ask for a repeat of 1987 Indian AIR Parippu drop this time on Araliya Gaha Mandiriya by either from India or UN, US, EU or from another Asian country………

    5) Can we ask SL armed forces to ignore Dictator MR’s instructions and request not to shoot at demonstrators who are fighting for our justice…….and to help us.

    6) Is the recent very high payroll increase given to Police is a part of the GOSL plan to suppress any peoples protests and even use arms to kill people during any demonstrations supporting CJ……..

    7)Have the opposition parties discussed this situation with the International Community, human rights groups and the local Diplomatic community…….

    8)Could opposition parties request to IMF regarding any GOSL 1 Billion US Dollar loan request, to tie up with the abolition of CJ impeachment and to publish Parliament MP’s income and expense reports……

    9)Is the opposition parties could give additional protection to CJ…her family…JSC…SC and the supreme court building, files and documents etc….if GOSL plans violent suppression to grab Judiciary power…..

    10)Are there any protection for public planned by opposition parties to safeguard public in case GOSL use forces to suppress Citizens who stand by CJ and to commence islandwide protests,work stoppage and sathiya grahas etc……………….

    11) Finally I was shocked to see in the TV that CJ was leaving the SC building ALONE WITH THE DRIVER ONLY IN HER CAR WITHOUT ANY ADDITIONAL PROTECTION GIVEN BY ARMED POLICE OR ANYBODY. I DID NOT SEE ANYBODY. IF SO WE TELL CJ TO TAKE EXTRA CARE FOR HER LIFE WITH EXTRA PROTECTION WITH POLICE OR PRIVATE SECURITY COMPANY. THIS IS A MUST.

    I smell foul air in the horizon and do not wish for another 1971, 1983 or 1989 type of violent situation again and be vigilant and prepare for any eventuality is the best remedy.

    I would like if anybody including opposition parties could answer these questions.

    I agree with Citizen re. Federalism or via any other just form. An early solution to the National Question will allow us the choice of using our men and material resources to badly required nation building.

    If you will forgive me, I think you are far too strong on our Muslim
    friends. While it is true there may be a few black sheep of business persons in the community, one should not generalise. There are these
    elements in all communities. Besides, corruption of this nature falls in that wisdom of where you cannot clap with one hand. Crooks in the State join hands with them in the commission of anti-social action.

    But one thing that is worrisome and will be chosen for debate is the
    figure from the recent population statistics that says whereas the natural increase in the past 3 decades in the 2 major communities is
    2-3% the other community records 76%

    I just visited this page. Re. my comments on Jan 05 there is an error in the last para that I have corrected in another page a few days ago.
    The growth of Sinhalese during 1981-2011 is reported as 34.8% and the
    Tamils around 34% Muslim growth is found in the Census to be 73.7% for the same period.

    In Sri Lanka all Tamils are NOT living ONLY in the North.
    this is the crux of the matter.
    a tamil nation thus is an impossible impracticable dream

    But I do say the government of Sri Lanka has to resolve the Tamil problems without delay – the most important problem being the land issue which the LRRC had also recommended. If not our Tamil brethren will automatically turn to the diaspora who will make this

    I wish there will be many more Sinhalese like Mr P.N. Gamage. Tamils want to live in peace in the island with other communities but ask for their right to run their affairs as allowed to all other PCs – but denied to them despite years of appeal since the Rajapakses seized the Govt. Why? The regime relied a great deal to appease international pressure on the LLRC. But the moment the Report was out and was not acceptable to the Sinhala extremists, the Rajapakses have put the LLRC into cold storage.

    Let’s bring back the stamp that depicts Vijaya’s arrival to Lanka.
    Let’s create a stamp to honour King Ravanan.
    Ask the British howmany kingdomes were there before they fully colonise Lanka land mass.

    I am afraid your proposition will only burden the regime more. Recognising Vijayan will be to accord an illegal immigrant coming via
    a kallathoni. Recognising Ravanan will mean one has to take that fair maiden Sithai to account too – that’s two more kallathonis unless you
    believe old Rav’s flew her down on his Monara. The British have it in record how many kingdoms were in the island when the first colonials set foot here – and that includes that Adigar lot in Kandy almost all of whom, full blooded Kandyan nobles, signed the surrender in suththa Thamil.

    The Island of Ceylon was a two state nation before the West colonised it. The Sinhalese and Tamils joined hands to get the Brits our of the two nations, namely Eelam and Lanka. The sensible thing to do is to restore the two state nations. Luckily I have not entered into politics. If I did, my policies would be to get rid of the Sinhalese and expand Eelam from Kankesanthurai to Galle. Mr Rudrakumar has proposed a sensible solution, however to understand what is sensible the readers should be sensible. Obviously many in Srilanka have been brain washed and are in a state of rotten cabbage.

    All the Sinhalese should know who they are first. How they came to Ceylon? without knowing who they are writing rubbish is worthless. i am not trying to fight with you but like to tell you your history. the above document is not mins. It is written by a well Educated Sinhalese and a lecturer.

    The Sinhalese are majority today because of the Portuguese Colonization. Tamils lost their Jaffna kingdom and lost a large percentage of their brethren to Catholicism. They have become Sinhalese, all the way from Puttalam to Southern Matara & beyond.
    Monday, 10 January 2011 – 10:30 AM SL Time
    Source:-http://www.lankanewspapers.com/news/2011/1/63562_space.htmlhttp://www.lankanewspapers.com/news/2011/1/63562_space.html
    We can say very confidently that it is because of the Portuguese colonization that the Sinhalese find themselves as an overwhelming majority in Sri Lanka today viz a viz the Tamil minority.

    As Sri Lanka`s written historical annal, the Mahavamsa, mentions, ethnic Tamils have found themselves in Sri Lanka in a political culture that promoted Buddhism from the beginning of written history. As a consequence, ethnic Tamils have assimilated into Sinhala Buddhist identity at varying rates since that time. It is no different than the invading Normans and Danes, as well as the indigenous Celts, becoming English over a period time in England.

    Long before the arrival of the Portuguese the Tamils had been able to organize themselves as a separate political entity under the auspicious of the Jaffna kingdom. This kingdom was not restricted to the northern Jaffna peninsula alone as biased contemporary Sri Lankan history maps would indicate. It had suzerainty over the pearl rich western Puttalam area and further south as recorded by a traveling Chinese historian Fa Hien of those days. This kingdom provided the political space for Tamils to survive as a separate ethnic group without the need to assimilate as Sinhala Buddhist as they had done in the post- Vijaya colonization period.

    Further, the coastal littoral of southern Sri Lanka was inhabited by simple folk of South Indian origin whose main livelihood was fishing, pearling, toddy tapping, cinnamon peeling and being the cannon fodder of local petty kings and chiefs in their constant fights.

    These were, by and large, Tamil or Malayalam ( The daughter language of Tamil) -speaking Hindus as can be attested by the `Ge` or house names of their descendants today in South Sri Lanka. Their primary function of fishing and toddy taping had prevented them, namely the Karave, Salagama & Durave castes, from being absorbed into Buddhism as fishing and toddy tapping were abhorrent functions to the Buddhists.

    Although some amongst these castes, due to their military service, had ingratiated their lineages with the dominant Sinhala Buddhists and received land grants. It is this group that has turned out to be the true villains of Sri Lankan history, not the Portuguese.

    Although most of the descendants of these groups today deny their obvious South Indian origins, true historians know the truth. If left alone, most of these coastal people would have coalesced into the Tamil minority of Sri Lanka. If that had happened Tamils might not have been the minority at all. But that is not what happened. The most important contribution that the Portuguese did to the Sinhalese was the elimination of an important social distance indicator between coastal Tamils and Sinhalese in converting both to the Catholic faith. It enabled the age-old assimilation of Tamils into Sinhalese to happen again, an assimilation which had come to a halt due to political and religious reasons.

    As a caveat, during the Buddhist revivalist period instigated by Anagarika Dharmapala, who was born into a Catholic Salagama family, many of these coastal Catholics both Tamils, Sinhalese and Sinhalised Tamils converted enmass to Buddhism, and even created their own Buddhist organizations because the traditional upper Govi caste-oriented prelates refused entry of these newly converted Buddhists of dubious caste origins into their organizations.

    Even today Sri Lankan Buddhist prelates are organized by caste, such as the Govi, Karavae and Salagama, because of this very reason. If there is to be a loser due to Portuguese colonization in Sri Lanka, then it is the Tamils more than the Sinhalese. Tamils lost their independent Jaffna kingdom and lost avery large percentage of their ethnic brethren to Catholicism. These brethren have become Sinhalese Buddhist and Sinhalese Catholics, all the way from western Puttalam region to southern Matara and beyond. It is only in the Northeastern provinces that Catholics have maintained their Tamil identity.

    Today just one village in the Western coast hangs on to its Tamil identity. It is Uddappu, one of out of a thousand villages and towns which spoke Tamil and dotted the coastal region once upon a time. All other surrounding Catholic or Buddhist villages are self-considered to be Sinhalese, even if they spoke Tamil at home just a generation ago.

    Further down in the South, Tamil has been replaced as a mother tongue many generations ago. Although, as presented in the conference, Portuguese did destroy many Hindu and Buddhist places of worship, today`s new Buddhists have taken over many Hindu temples as Buddhist Vihares, as can be seen by the statutes of the Hindu deity Ayyanar on horseback in these Vihares` complexes close to Negombo.

    These new Buddhists, like all the newly converted around the world, overwhelmingly supported, and still support, the suppression of Tamil language and civil rights since the populist prime minister Solomon West Ridgeway Diaz Bandaranaike came to power in 1956. He himself came from an uppity coastal caste of formerly Hindu, then Catholic, and later Protestant background. He converted to Buddhism as a way to gain power, only to be shot dead by a Buddhist monk. In a nutshell, Bandaranaike`s family`s ascent to power as Sinhala elites from their lowly roots shows the hybridization that is the norm amongst the Sri Lankan ruling class. Since Bandaranaike, his clan has provided two more leaders for the country, who have managed to push it beyond the abyss.

    Sri Lanka has not being able to overcome its colonial history, not because of the effects of colonialism, but because of the lack of vision of its post-colonial political class. This cabal owes its current success to its ability to ingratiate itself with who ever and whatever has been perceived to be dominant. This group has appropriated whatever has been necessary to succeed. During pre-colonial times, it was for land grants from petty Sinhalese chiefs and titles for offering their kinsman as the cannon fodder for war. During the Portuguese times, the path to success was Catholicism and Portuguese names. During the British time most converted to Protestantism and picked up Anglo names. Today the same people are Buddhists of the first class. Their continued usage of racist supremacy as a political card displays the inner insecurity of the ethnically hybridized ruling class, but also – primarily – their crass opportunistic behaviour.

    The entire top rung of the pseudo-Marxist, but ideologically racist JVP (the third largest political party) politburo hails from these coastal littoral areas. FAMILY ORIGIN IN THESE AREAS LIE IN THE MURKY WATERS OFF THE PALK STRAITS. Today these people are up keepers of the virulently superior Sinhala Buddhists interests. This also applies to the current President and his coterie of Southern advisors and military leaders with Iberian patrilineal last names open or hidden.

    It is this ruling class catering to a narrow, parochial and racialist world view that has brought the country to its current abyss, not Portuguese colonialism as the conference presenters would have us believe. The people who pay the price for such opportunistic politics are the common family man, the fisher and the farmer who have from time immemorial wanted to live in peace and love with their neighbours, true to their religious teachings, not the corrupt Pajero-driving Swiss bank account-holding ruling class.

    If Sri Lanka is to emerge from its current abyss, then its highly educated people need to look at who is leading whom in what direction. Is the tired old virulent Sinhala Buddhist rhetoric used originally by the Diaz Bandaranaike clan and now being offered anew by the Mahinda Rajapakses, JHU & JVP the right message for them?

    Who does this virulent and racist message benefit? It only benefits the ruling class and their hangers-on that have, like the chameleon, changed their colors to hold on to their petty perks at the cost of millions of common people. They have sacrificed the future of growth and economic stability that was Sri Lanka`s due like in Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand just for their selfish interests. Their ancestors sacrificed their kinsman for a few acres and useless titles, and today`s cabal of Hennanayakes, Rajapakses & de Silvas are burying the birthright of all Sri Lankans.
