      Despite the desspicable attack, there were decent Tamils in Tamil Nadu who protected this victim.

      That is our hope. Decent people must rise up against ethno-religious racist facsists in Sri Lanka or Tamil Nadu.

      C4, TN Jokers such as Jaya and Nidhi have done a superb job drumming up emotions of idiots in Tamil Nadu. We can expect more blood shed.

        Ben Hurling what is sauce for the goose is also sauce for the gander. The Sinhalese like you lot were elated in supressing Tamils in the name of LTTE. Your denials of irrefutable evidence, do you believe that you can fool all? When Sir John, clearly stated to keep Buddhist Priests out, you BUGGERS thought that you all can have your own way. Today due to your type of obstinacy the whole country is paying. You all believed that the Sri Lankan Forces secretively killing all the LTTE surrenderees after fooling them to surrender, hyping the Forces as great warriors and your Scumbag of a ROGUE MR as the saviour, now face the music of Tamil Nadu. The best is yet to come. As much as the world powers allowed all this while for a few Sinhalese with MR at the helm to suppress the minority Tamils and now the Muslims, they should also not interfere now when Tamil Nadu attack the Sri Lankans. Bloody Good, Just desert for free.

          Got any irrefutable evidence of LTTE crimes as well? Over 30 years. I think SL should go after all who backed up LTTE. Are you worried?

          BTW, MR has never been my saviour. But, I don’t really have a problem with him beating the crap out of VP. It seems that offended you a lot.

          Sri Lanka will deal with Tamil Nadu Jokers appropriately. We always have. Over 2000 years, how many invasions to annex Sri Lanka into Tamil Nadu. All failed. Will fail again.

          Your response proves the ugliness of extreme Tamil Ethno-Nationaliam. Get some therapy. This is the 21st century. Tribalism is out of fashion.

              Now after 65 years of independence country is turn into a Somalia with 70% malnourished, 80% below poverty line, main foreign exchange is Middle East labour, Health, Education and Economy in Ruin, while CB owes over 10 Billion Dollars indebt to other countries.

              Rakapakse’s fake Show-off and comedy show Economy cannot fool anyone now. No more. Mattala will be Hut..la very soon bankruptcing our already sick Airline Industry.

              Yes untouchable with no natural resources and assets with 20 million sick, unskilled and undevelopped labour force to feed.

            Ben Hurling; The bitter truth is that even though you don’t seem to support MR inside you know very well of his wrong doings and as part of your sinister mind you secretly support his activities. Defeating LTTE is just part of the plan. Where were you when your own Sinhalese were slaughtered by MR and his Gang? Lasantha, Highway minister who died in a mysterious car crash just to name a few. Who killed Tharaki? Who is doing white-van abductions? Who is killing journalists? Who is threatening to kill Sunday leader editor? (‘THEY WILL KILL YOU’ the exact word from your so called defense minister’) who is behind Bodu bala sena? Who is trying to ignite Muslims by denying their basic rights? (Such as halal food) Who has committed serious crimes against innocent Tamils in 1983 Black July? I can go on. The only bloody thing you can always bring up is what LTTE has done for the past 30 years. So ending LTTE terrorism is just part of the bigger picture. You are trapped inside this cubical. Get out more. Maybe visit a country outside singha deshaya maybe you will find your country being the biggest laughing stock of the world.

            You are a educated fool. Nothing more.

      This sad incident is a testimony to the innocence and trusting nature of ordinary Sinhalese people, and their traditional admiration of India’s “greatness.” In spite of the current anti-Sri Lankan tension in Tamil Nadu these people didn’t hesitate to go there because they trusted the essential humanity of all. It is also shocking evidence of the gutter level of LTTE supporters in Tamil Nadu. The man who hit the monk is a coward and a loser. He has nothing going for him in life. I feel sorry for him. India’s “greatness” has gone to dogs. I admire the Sinhalese people for not panicking and remaining calm. While the rowdy who hit the monk acted like an ill-bred lout, the Sri Lankan monk kept his dignity intact. He showed class in a most terrifying situation. We Sri Lankans should be proud of him. And we and the rest of the world should shed our illusions about India’s “greatness.” India stinks. Everyday dozens of rape-killings. No woman should visit India – a nation of sex-starved perverts.

      The Tamil nationalists in Tamil Nadu are desperately trying to create another black July in Sri Lanka. While the voting for the US resolution against SL is about to take place, this is the best time and opportunity to provoke the Singala-Buddhists and make them attack the Tamils. The attack on the Sinhala-Buddhist monks in Chennai was premeditated to provoke a backlash in Sri Lanka.

      See how Tamils save the Bhikku rather than see it as an assault against the Bhikku. In this video it is clear that only a very few (one or two) are attacking the Buddhist Bhikku but many Tamils are saving him. Be thankful that the Tamils are so kind.

      This type of kindness you will never receive from Sinhala-Buddhists. This is the difference between Sinhalese and Tamils.

          TN Jokers did nothing for Tamils during that time. Why now?

    Political leaders in Tamil Nadu and Delhi should intervene to stop these attacks which need to be condemned without any reservation. Also MR should take part of the blame for this. Each time he goes to India or an Indian leader comes here, he says “13+ and political solution” but does nothing. He is internationalizing the issue by his silence and inaction. The MR regime is seen abroad as anti-minority, now more so after the regime-friendly Bodu Bala Sena antics which MR obviously encourages. We never saw this type of things in Tamil Nadu before.

      From Sri Lanka. From the bottom of my heart. I salute the heroic citizens of Tamil Nadu. Who did not stand by. Intervened and saved the monk’s life. In Sri Lanka we must do the same. In the face of despicable consequences of Ethno/Religious/Nationalism we now witness. Both among idoits in Tamil Nadu. And among idiots in Sri Lanka. May humanity be strong enough to prevail over this primitive madness of stone age thugs.

      The attitude and acts of those who attacked a helpless monk is very, very despicable. This should have never happened.

      But as you say, MR should be largely blamed for this turn of events. Even during the height of the war in May 2009, the Tamils in TN did not turn this violent. They protested in a peaceful manner and there were no adversarial incidences reported against SL visitors to Tamilnadu, including monks. But with the emergence of widespread allegations of RAPE and murder, and the helplessness and distress that they cannot reason with a horrific regime, and added to the Congress led Govt’s seemingly open support of a regime that allegedly murdered thousands of Tamil civilians led to the expression and explosion of vent up anger.

      Many of us moderates encouraged the regime to put the past behind, move forward with the PROMISED devolution and take the TNA into confidence on the path of reconciliation and redevelopment of the area. There were thousands of idp Tamils who were willing to put behind the past and invest heavily in an area and in a nation devastated and bruised by a very debilitating war. Instead, the Rajapakses saw the end of the war as a means to consolidate their power (18A), trumpeted triumphalism, never cared or took steps to heal the wounds and pains that the Tamil civilians have gone through. It was unmitigated subjugation. The same mistake Prabhakaran made, the Rajapakses just perfected that.

      History could have gone either way but the Rajapakses chose the path to Pluto’s kingdom. Their way of keeping the divison and animosity alive between the races has taken SL into a dangerous cycle of whirlpool and I won’t be wrong in saying the Rajapakses will drag SL down the muddy path and heap shame and anarchy. With their grandstanding, now the Muslims are facing the wrath.

      There was a sense of relief all round after the war and there was a lot of international goodwill willing to assist SL to help move forward. How the Rajapakses squandered such goodwill and turned it into antagonism should be an endearing lesson. At that point, all the international community and India wanted was to make good the promise the Rajapakses gave – implement the 13A in full. They even promised a PLUS but now they have proved themselves to be perennial liars.

      Now the situation has turned very explosive with the widespread allegations of rape that was committed to “teach the Tamils a lesson”. Even when the majority masses kept silent on these atrocities, the monks can have no excuse in holding a regime for such horrific atrocities on civilians. Whatever happened to the teachings of the Enlightened One? It is in this shade that Tamilnadu has started to look at the monks. Instead of stopping the Rajapakses in their tracks, which they could have, they encouraged the regime to commit these dastardly crimes. The JHU is a classic example of a disgrace to the teachings of Buddha. Believe me, Buddhism has taken a serious beating with its violent strain it has demonstrated in SL.

      Mind you, none of these ever happened in Tamilnadu when SL was under previous regimes. There is deep sense of anger against the Rajapakses and also the Congress for supporting the Rajapakses. With Rajiv’s murder, Tamilnadu turned against the LTTE, and similarly the regime’s war should have been wages against the LTTE but with what has now been termed as genocide and worse still using rape as a means of subjugation has very much tortured the conscience and feelings of Tamils, and incidentally not only in Tamilnadu but the world over. I was very angry when I heard and saw the clips of these dastardly acts. So, the request is to conduct an independent international investigation to ascertain the truth. Instead of the loud protestations by a regime that has no trustworthy standing, and if it has nothing to hide, then the right and logical thing to do would be to agree to an international independent investigation. Nothing short of this would extinguish the flames of anguish. From here it can only get worse. Despite all the rhetoric within the country, what is clear is the Rajapakses have brought terrible shame on the country that has destroyed the very fabric of what a Buddhist nation should have been.

    It’s really shameful! As a Sri Lankan Muslim woman, I strongly condemn the brutal act against the Buddhist monk. Attacking a tourist, specially a priest is surely an uncivilized act! We all should raised our voice against violence an injustice!

      Lareena:

      Yes this is shameful. But have you heard of the adage that what goes around comes around. A tourist, who came with his girlfriend to spend his holidays in SL, went back in a coffin. The main culprit is enjoying his perks and life, thanks to the Rajapakse regime.

      The Mahawamsa mindset initially went for the Tamils. Then now they are going after the Muslims. Sri Lanka would be a lot better place without these monks who display a very violent streak and are a disgrace to what the Enlightened One preached and practised.

      It can asserted with certainty that SL had never reached its potential because of these monks holding everything and everyone to ransom. They never allowed this country to develop and prosper and all they did was to incessantly staked up the enmity between the various races in the country. In fact, they created the LTTE and Prabhakaran. Their stranglehold on the politics of the country has meant, and will continue to be, that the minorities have to live a subjugated life. Who knows, for all you may know, one day you may end up at their receiving end and become a statistic in their list. Just beware.

        Dev,

        At least Dr.RN has good thoughts and intentions and a heart to help a helpless victim for standing by her people, truth, honesty and justice……and as a result had to sacrifice her Job, reputation, humility and honesty.

        Our Great King Maha Raja made sure that her family is destroyed for ever and for good after cutting off her husband’s Job and later her job also. Also Maharaja made sure that CJ’s son will not do further studies or a Job while his sons drive Lamborginis and have all the fun. Who hi-jacked and stole the Law exam……now a fake lawyer making millions.

        see the following web when Maha Raja said that CJ even does not have money to pump petrol for her car….
        http://www.srilankaxnews.com/index.php/newstop/item/2722

        This is the type of Maharaja we have, who worship Buddha daily and giving dana to Buddhist priests daily.

        Dr.RN being a Tamil has more sympathy and a heart towards a Sinhalese than our Wolf Maharaja.
        Please look out for Mega 40 Million Rupee Alibaba who imported ethenol illegally to make and sell Kasippu.

    Do you approve this dastardly attack on a religious dignitary? What a humiliation for a Buddhist priest in the country of birth of Lord Buddha? This is the second attack within days on a Buddhist priest from Sri Lanka by the Tamil Nadu goons incited by bastards like Vaiko and Seeman. Jayalalitha is not just condoning these dastardly acts but seems to be encouraging them.

    You criticised me for commenting that Sri Lanka should recall its High Commissioner in New Delhi and even think of breaking off diplomatic relations with India for these continued attacks on Sri Lankans in Tamil Nadu.

    You called my comments stupid for suggesting that Indian central government should get the President of India to dismiss Jayalitha government in Tamil Nadu. Indian Central government has a duty to protect foreign vistors from any harm. This incident once again demonstrates that there is no law and order in Tamil Nadu. If a state government fails to maintain law and order and permits attacks on foreigners then the President is entitled under the Indian constitution to dismiss that government and impose governor’s rule.

    You talked about democracy. Tamil Nadu people do not deserve democracy and an elected government. Jayalitha and Karunadhi come to power by purchasing votes for money. That is the state of democracy in Tamil Nadu. Only goons, murderers, rapists and racketeers can become members of the Tamil Nadu State Assembly. No decent Tamils enter the Tamil Nadu politics.

    If these type of attacks happened to Americans, President Obama would have been on the phone and threatened Prime Minister Manmohan Singh with drastic consequences. I do not know why Mahinda Rajapakse is silent. He should take immediate action to protect Sri Lankan citizens from these type of humiliation from Tamil Nadu goons.

    Native Vedda, people like you are condoning these dastardly acts. If Sinhalese react in the same way, think about what will happen to those Tamils living in Sri Lanka.

    These Tamil Nadu goons led by LTTÊ godfathers like Vaiko and Seeman in TamilNadu are trying to incite another racial riot in Sri Lanka.

          The differences of TN state assembly members and Sri lanka members of parliament is that the former is from tamilnadu gutters and the latter is from srilanka gutters,all are interested in only filling their pockets.
          Nepotism is rampant in both places ,but in srilanka govt is promoting racial tension and on the other hand they get help only from the muslim countries ,e.g AIR ARABIA and SAUDI AIR are the only to airlines that have agreed to land at the Mattala Rajapaksa Airport,
          and bring Halal money.
          Anyway we muslims will never do this type of things even to our enemies

      Lord Buddha was not born in Tamilnadu. However this type of behaviour should not be tolerated in any part of the world irrespective who was born where and so on.

      Do you mean to say just because Buddha was born in India/Nepal such behaviour should be prohibited?

      “This is the second attack within days on a Buddhist priest from Sri Lanka by the Tamil Nadu goons”

      I agree.

      “ incited by bastards like Vaiko and Seeman. Jayalalitha”
      I may have to discuss the issue with their mothers about their children’s status being Bastards, I need some time.

      “You criticised me for commenting that Sri Lanka should recall its High Commissioner in New Delhi and even think of breaking off diplomatic relations with India for these continued attacks on Sri Lankans in Tamil Nadu.”

      Yes I did and I am happy to do it again and again and again…..

      “You called my comments stupid for suggesting that Indian central government should get the President of India to dismiss Jayalitha government in Tamil Nadu.”

      Yes I did and I will do it again and again…..

      There were frequent incidents of rape of foreign tourist in the past and a few murders too,in Sri Lanka, I can supply you with a long list on request.

      I don’t remember Naga demanding the state/provincial Council Members/ Pradeshiya Saba to be sacked.

      I can see hypocrisy, double standards and sheer stupidity on your part.

      The past weakened saw number of rapes reported to Indian police. There is particularly one that involved gang rape of a Swiss Tourist. Please advise the Centre to sack the MP state government for not preventing the rape.

      There were other rape incidents reported in other parts of India, most were violent and Centre did not bother to sack/dismiss all those state governments where rape is every day occurrence.

      Would you now advise the Centre to sack rapist states? If that is the measure on which state governments are judged and sacked then the Centre would have to extend direct rule over the entire country.

      “Indian Central government has a duty to protect foreign vistors from any harm.”

      Not just foreigners but its own citizens as well.

      You cannot put all the Indian pricks (approximately 700 millions of them) under surveillance for 24/7/52.

      “This incident once again demonstrates that there is no law and order in Tamil Nadu.”

      With the same measure I would say that there is no law and order in entire India. What would be your advice to Delhi?

      “If a state government fails to maintain law and order and permits attacks on foreigners then the President is entitled under the Indian constitution to dismiss that government and impose governor’s rule.”

      Would you please site the chapter and verse of Indian constitution which define what constitute a failure of law and order. Does intimidation of Bikkus constitute a failure of law and order in India?

      “You talked about democracy. Tamil Nadu people do not deserve democracy and an elected government.”

      It’s for the Tamilnadu stupid Tamils to decide whether they want democracy, kleptocracy, theocracy, …….or feudalism.

      You don’t decide because you don’t have voting rights.

      “Jayalitha and Karunadhi come to power by purchasing votes for money. That is the state of democracy in Tamil Nadu. Only goons, murderers, rapists and racketeers can become members of the Tamil Nadu State Assembly. No decent Tamils enter the Tamil Nadu politics.”

      It’s up to the Indian Elections Commissioner and Judiciary to decide who is eligible to contest elections and stop the politicians buying votes.

      For your information Delhi parliament is awash with alleged and convicted criminals, nearly 150 of them. How do you propose to deal with all of them? According my elders most of them are from outside Tamilnadu.

      “If these type of attacks happened to Americans, President Obama would have been on the phone and threatened Prime Minister Manmohan Singh with drastic consequences”

      What might be the drastic consequences? Would Obama drop a nuclear bomb on India or send his 7th fleet from Pacific Command?

      LTTE won a war against India. Sri Lanka won a war against LTTE. Therefore MR should have the confidence to send in his armed forces to India and teach the Tamilnadu Tamils a lesson, that they will never forget. This is an still option open to him.

      “I do not know why Mahinda Rajapakse is silent. He should take immediate action to protect Sri Lankan citizens from these type of humiliation from Tamil Nadu goons.”

      Please advise MR to send armed guards to protect Sri Lankan tourist in India. The tourist have an option, avoid Tamilnadu completely. MR should stop visiting India altogether, might work as sanctions against that goon country.

      “Native Vedda, people like you are condoning these dastardly acts.”

      I have never condoned violence and never will. That is one reason why I am unpopular and unwelcome in this forum by many bigots.

      “If Sinhalese react in the same way, think about what will happen to those Tamils living in Sri Lanka”

      Sinhala/Buddhists do not need reason to beat up Tamils or for that matter their own fellow Sinhala/Buddhists. They do it all the time and I am sure they will continue to do so with or without reasons.

      “These Tamil Nadu goons led by LTTÊ godfathers like Vaiko and Seeman in TamilNadu are trying to incite another racial riot in Sri Lanka.”

      So you think the fault line is always lies with Tamilnadu goons. Vaiko was not with LTTE in 1956. Seeman was not even born then. Do you still blame Vaiko and Seeman for the 1956, 1977 and 1983 riots in Sri Lanka.

      Incidentally you believe the 1915 riots against the Muslims was a retaliation for intimidating Bikku Anagarica (the homeless one) in Madras by Vaiko/Seeman/LTTE rump/exciled journalist/Tamil Diaspora/NGOs the axis goons.

      Once again you have proved that Sri Lankies are irredeemably stupid.

      Are you secretly planning to destabilise India with your cunning plans?

      Nothing personal.

      “What a humiliation for a Buddhist priest in the country of birth of Lord Buddha?”
      Indians wouldn’t give a toss because only the untouchables have embraced Buddhism in India. Go read Dr Ambedker the father of Indian constitution. The folk that slapped the man are also untouchables. Gautama died a Hindu and 500 years later some politician wrote a story like Mao did selling almost close to the bible.
      Religion another emotion.
      Anyway the Chinese for once would be cheering the guys.

    These two incidents are deplorable. But let us not forget the reality and the nature of ordinary men. Sri Lankans, Sinhalese, Tamils or any other, quite well know the activities of JHU, BBS, Bumiputhra etc. etc. all comprised of many buddhist monks and predominantly the riots of these groups are led by buddhist monks. We all saw/wittnessed the latest in Dambulla and the very recent in alll parts of the country against muslims. The unreasonable, uncultured barbarian type actions even by the buddhist monks were recorded by the media and published but what did the authorities DO? The silence of the law authority/government create the ‘hatred’ and animosity towards these groups including the monks who lead these barbaric gangster groups. These hatred translates into attack when the ordinary gets the opportunity. NO POINT OF SPRAYING THE GERMICIDE ON THE LEAVES WHEN THE WORMS ARE AT THE ROOT.

        Dear nimanta, it is not necessary to lay hands to signify the “attack”. It is barely obvious – unless you, nimanta, behave like an ostrich burrying its head under the sand or a cat closing its eyes and calling it the ‘night” – what the SL buddhist monks, who lead many groups who claim to be protecting the buddhism and the buddhist – are doing in Sri Lanka. Everyone would agree that ‘their’ actions amount to ‘attack’. However, I would not be surprised if such a buddhist monk(s) lays hands on a ‘poosari’ or any other religious dignitory for that matter as we all know what kind of patronage and protection they (buddhist monks) get from the power that be.
        Just wearing a safron robe does not make a man a “buddhist monk” unless his life style displays what buddha wanted them to be. A true buddhist monk – even an ordinary citizen for that matter – lives the principles of buddha, then not only the buddhist but non buddhist too will rever that person. Do you get the point nimanta?

    All violence has to be condemned. Stop all violence whether it is in Tamilnadu or Srilanka or mid sea. When poor innocent Tamil fishermen are being attacked, their boats and nets damaged, their catch robbed, they are arrested and sometimes killed, you cannot expect the Tamilnadu people to be tolerating such atrocities for long. The Srilanka government and the navy are continuously denying it and allowing this atrocity to be continued. The Indian government just makes a protest to the Srilanka government or asks Tamilnadu fishermen not to stray or go deep sea fishing to avoid attacks by Srilanka navy. Moreover the army is harassing Tamil people in Srilanka, assaulting them, destroying their properties not allowing them to get back to their original habitat, taking over their properties chasing them away, and in some instances killing them. It is obvious to any independent person that these attacks on Srilanka Tamils and Indian Tamil fishermen are being carried out with tacit support from the Srilanka government as none of the Sinhala perpetrators of crime against Tamils have been brought to book. The correct action for India to prevent Tamilnadu fishermen to be attacked is to declare a no go zone for the Srilanka navy in Palk strait and any patrolling should be a joint one with navies of India and Srilanka. To prevent attacks on Tamils in north-east Srilanka, the army should be confined to barracks, with law and order being enforced by Tamil policemen under a Tamil dominated provincial council. Until and unless violence against Tamils in Srilanka or mid sea continues, I do not see any violence against Sinhalese in Tamilnadu to abate. The problem is that Sinhalese living in Srilanka feel that they have impunity to commit violence against Tamils and no one should question it, while no one has the right to unleash violence on the Sinhalese.

      Raja, precisely. The Chauvinist Sinhalese here in Sri Lanka expects the World not to interfere when they treat the minorities with such impunity, but cries Blue Murder when they get a bit of their own medicine. The World body should not interfere and allow Tamil Nadu and Sri Lanka to settle the issues.

    This barbaric activity in Chennai and in other parts of Tamil Nadu should stop forthwith and Indian government,including its State Government in TN should deal with these perpetrators severely.
    Pilgrims of all faiths should be permitted to pass without hindrances and harassment.That treatment should be extended to all other travelers too.

The world is not respectable; it is mortal, tormented, confused, deluded forever; but if it is shot through with beauty, with love, with glints of courage and laughter; and in these, the spirit blooms timidly and struggles to the light amid the thorns.

    Atleast there were few Tamils to save the mob acting violence against monks whereas you srilankan was enjoying when masscare was doen on minorities everyday in island. When your navy acting worst against tamil fishermen, you would see what is future heading to .. Similarly, the people who involved in attack on other incident was also arrested. Whereas srilankan govt yet to make an single inquiry into all atrocities? Why you all ahve not condemned and forced govt to enquire?

    This is not right and should not be allowed not only in India or in Sri Lanka but anywhere on this earth. The emotions of Indian Tamils has been aroused due to the rape and murder of Tamil civilians including women and children during the war and now the actions of Bodu Bala Sena against non buddhist relitions. Gothabaya who is the Secretary of Defence and who is supporting Bodu Bala Sena has to take note of this, as this is the result of his actions during the war and after the war. Its time President Rajapakse removes Gotha from his position and appoint another secretary who is from the civil service and not a family member. Further President Rajapakse should ensure that all the citizens of the country are protected, especially if Bodu Bala Sena is to create trouble after the UN resolution.

    Poor hamuduruwa getting assaulted. I really feel sorry for him. Where is BBS to raise even a finger against this mob? They BBS attacked the Muslim Hijab and tried to disrobe them, ultimately this monk had to hide his safron robe or he would have mauled even further. How the BBS attacked our learned Ulamas who have virtually given the lives to study Islam and be a guide for the laymen. Now they (clergy) are getting disgraced in public by getting assaulted in full public view. I am sure in time to come, Sri Lankans can never be guaranteed safe journey to pilgrimage in India. Don’t get me wrong, but I must say what is in my heart as a Muslim who was at the receiving end from BBS/JHU/SR conbiine for false cooked charges, humiliated in the most demeaning manner, and no place to complaint, and no intervention by government. Totally helpless. How do you think we Muslims feel about the injustice done to us.

    This is a clear indication that we Tamils in Sri Lanka need to take note of.

    Indians and Indians supporting LTTE should not be welcomed by us in Sri Lanka.

    We know that non-LTTE Tamil Nadu Tamils not only like Sri Lanka but will not do anything to harm Sri Lanka or its sovereignty.

    This is not the case of the LTTE Tamil Nadu Indians… they are likely to chase us from our homes one day… so Tamils need to be mindful of this.
    The way these LTTE Fishermen are denying us fishing is an exmaple we cannot forget.

    Tamils of SL need to now come out and saw we do not want anything to do with Tamil Nadu or LTTE in Tamil Nadu

      Shiva,

      I understand your views on Tamil issue. But as a Sinhalese I know that behind all this was Justice not done to Tamil people. Not implement LLRC and not bringing justice to Tamil people and branding ev ery nothern tamil as LTTE proxy was the biggest blunder Rajapakses did, and with Militarising North and Putting Buddha statutes and building temples all over north aroused anti Sinhala sentiment in both North and TN.

      I think GOSL is in a grave situation both at Politically and Militarily.

      No help at all to GOSL this time where China will never in political issues. GOSL is in grave danger.

      Any fool knows that they cannot play jokes with International community, but Rajapakses thought otherwise……similar to Kangetta and other cases.

      Many warned, wrote advised and even mocked at Govt. to implement LLRC ASAP, but the morons did not listen. We do not know who advise Govt.on security and political issues…..but it’s a Mutt whoever advised.

      Even President mentioned about 1987 Indian Air Parippu drop during Mattala airport inaguration speach. Therefore nobody could say he did not know about what is going on in International political arena……

      Now the whole country is in trouble and could escalate into another war.

      Donkey’s neither listen nor correct their mistakes.

    These verms should realise the fact that among all the hues and cries and uproars by the so called Karinanithi or Nedumaran or Vaiko and the likes,or even the millions and millions of Tamils, Rajapakse kept up his promise and visted india and went back.But instead just a hundred thousand Tamils in the U.K of course have chased Mahinda out of the U.K,not once but twice.Shame on India.

    You could have booed him and raised your voice against him in the current heightened conditions. But to physically humiliate an unarmed, unconnected man of religion in the soil of Tamilnadu – and that too a pilgrim who believed the great State will go down to the level of beasts, is to take you to the levels of those canine that humiliated and attacked innocent Tamils in the streets of Colombo and elsewhere in the island during 7/83. No Tamil worth his salt will condone such savage action against a fellow Lankan – and that too man of the clergy.
    The Tamil Nation bows its head in shame.

    All of us are engrossed in the symptoms and are oblivious to the malaise. One should recall the Anti Hindi movement of 1962 which shook TN to its foundations, toppled the Congress government for its insensitivity and killed the giant Kamaraj. No government could withstand the momentum. After a 57 year build up anti SL sentiment is at an explosive point. The same student movement at the forefront of language in 1962, is now spearheading ethnic solidarity in TN. The gathering force is unstoppable. It has the moral strength of 80 million behind it.

    Who takes the rap? Unquestionably SL. The compulsion was to unwind from 2013 to 2009. Nothing was done. MP Sumanthiran pointed out very clearly that not a single recommendation of the LLRC was implemented. The regime’s representative proclaims before the UN in Geneva that 99% has been implemented. Do superior deciept, cheat and chicanery work? Chennai spoke.

    It is pointless venting our spleen at violent elements. The onus is upon the SL government to seek the known corrective course. Assault of the Bhikku is only a slap on the face of Sri Lanka.
