Video: Mahinda Rajapaksa Attempts To Attack UPFA Supporter

Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, during a UPFA election rally in Akuressa, moved angrily towards a party supporter, as if he was going to attack the man.

Rajapaksa’s behaviour was captured on a video and posted by a person who was present at the rally.

Rajapaksa reacted angrily when a supporter, who came close to him, pulled his hand before the former President got on to the stage.

The former President was taken away by his body guards and other UPFA members who surrounded him.

Rakapaka then got on to the stage, showed his respect to the Buddhist monks and waved his hands at supporters as if nothing happened.

    Still frames of this video is available from various media including DM and you can clearly see a man stretches his arm over a crowd and grabs MR’s arm, and another man who is a Grama Niladhari who is in front of the hand grabbing person who can be clearly identified in the still frames has given many many interviews as to what actually happened, how a drunk guy grabbed MR’s arm and how the latter had pulled his arm away, it is terribly disappointing that this kind of made- up stories are published in CT to attract a class of people united only by their hate for MR.

    The picture clearly shows a man pulling MR’s right hand and MR himself is trying to pull it back and back away. This man is behind another person (Grama Sewaka) and MR could not have hit this man even if he tried to. Also MR is a right hander and when this hand is held by some one he can hit only if he is a south paw. Even if he did so it would be in self defense as he reasonably can assume he is being attacked. He is strong enough for this. Media must stop this type of wrong news and must get the facts correct before publishing. They want to be first with the news whether it is right or wrong for sensationalism and with other agendas. They don’t correct themselves later and the damage is already done. The aggrieved party is helpless.

      After MR raises his left hand to deliver a punch to the guy, MR the so called strong man is pushed back and he goes flying. If not for the security guys, MR would have fallen flat on his back. The rage and fury written on MR’s face at that moment, sure would have sent his pulse up. Strange that he did not get a heart attack or burst a blood vessel. Afterall the good MR has done, killing so many in his lust for power, will get him one day for sure and soon too.

    (PLEASE NOTE: It was YOU who asked all these questions from me. NO hard feelings on MY part. I answered without prejudice. The examples that are used were to bring you some light, only.)

    You say “….. then what is this “White flag ” story which appeared soon after the war?…….”

    “White Flag” story will only be believed by the people who don’t have their own minds but who let others fill their minds with rubbish.

    Who can see a ‘White Flag’ in the pitch darkness, in the middle of the night, in a thick jungle where a fierce fighting was going on between an army and a group of terrorists????

    People who believe the “White Flag story” must be in the mindset of a Military Video Game.

    Prabhakaran was given many opportunities to surrender during the battle, but he didn’t use them.

    You say “….Prabakaran was pronounced dead on 18 th Monday afternoon whereas Mahinda’s arrival was on ‘Saturday the 16 th’ of May at 8.05 am , what has really happened between 16 th and 18 th of May ?…….”

    – 16th May – SL President was at the WRAP WEF summit IN JORDAN (Source: AP,
    Voice of America, and other news worldwide )
    – 17th – He came to Sri Lanka and displayed openly his immeasurable
    love for the country at the airport. (Source: available worldwide)
    17th – Tigers admitted the defeat. (Source: The Times – London)
    – 18th May – Prabhakaran’s body was found. (Source: available worldwide)
    – 19th May – Official announcement at the Parliament.

    Your attempt in distorting the obvious, RECORDED facts are useless.
    You CAN’T CHANGE the ‘history’ to insult or unfairly accuse a Noble National Leader.

    You say “….was it possible to have such a huge cut on back of his head , if it were a gun shot ? had it been a gun shot aiming from the back of Prabakaran , it must have destroyed his face , but strangely his face was intact !

    The answer is right there in your second question. About the question as to how a huge whole in back of the head can be made by a gunshot on the forehead, please watch Cowboy movies (old), your suspicions will vanish.

    You say “…. who got him undressed ? why ?…….”

    C’mon, man…., That DEAD MAN was the Leader of the Most Ruthless Terrorist Organization in the World and the Founder of Suicide Bombers who terrorized the country for 30 long years. Nobody in his right mind will let him lie there without doing a proper, thorough body check up. (I am surprised about you, even in action movies you can see the hero first searching the body of the fallen).

    You say “….why did he (Mahinda) kiss the tarmac ? wasn’t he overjoyed after hearing the good news ?…..”

    Everybody knows the answer. There is no other leader in our entire history who loved Sri Lanka more than President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

    The entire country jubilated. The happiness was for the PEACE which was achieved after 30 years of suffering by eradicating the scourge of terrorism that plagued Sri Lanka. The freedom of living in peace for everybody didn’t come by accident. In order to bring peace, our valiant security forces paid an enormously high price willingly, on behalf of Sinhalese, Tamils, Muslims and others in Sri Lanka.

      really ? so according to you , white flag story is a fantasy , and it had happened in the pitch darkness of middle of a night , right ? i stated this thing to you last time as well, yet i’m repeating the same thing , do some sort of reading from different source of media to ascertain the veracity of any story , just don’t jump the gun , you are showing your ignorance over and over again. you let your emotion to do the work , it’s typical Srilankan mentality , before any thing else people tend to prejudge the situation based on their own believes , what a tragic !

      “– 16th May – SL President was at the WRAP WEF summit IN JORDAN (Source: AP, Voice of America, and other news worldwide ) – 17th – He came to Sri Lanka and displayed openly his immeasurable love for the country at the airport. (Source: available worldwide)”

      Please watch the below mention famous videos to verify the dates ,

      “Your attempt in distorting the obvious, RECORDED facts are useless. You CAN’T CHANGE the ‘history’ to insult or unfairly accuse a Noble National Leader. “

      I’m not trying to distort any facts hear , you can see from the above video clips , based on those video clips i have stated the dates , say for argument’s sake those dates are wrong , still i stand by my point !
      say MR returned on 17 , but Prabakarn’s body was found on 19 ,still there is a gap , what went behind the curtain ?

      your knowledge of forensic science is bad as every thing else , so you take the government version straight away , they have declared it was a gun wound , i can’t help you there Champa , any fool would understand isn’t possible to shoot a man in that angle and protect his face ! it looks an axe blow to me .

      “C’mon, man…., That DEAD MAN was the Leader of the Most Ruthless Terrorist Organization in the World and the Founder of Suicide Bombers who terrorized the country for 30 long years. Nobody in his right mind will let him lie there without doing a proper, thorough body check up. (I am surprised about you, even in action movies you can see the hero first searching the body of the fallen).”

      check the last video clip , Prabakaran was wearing his guerilla kit , it was on record , next he was stripped , if they had wanted to do a thorough body check up , they would have done so and got him dressed back again , but they didn’t , why ? they wanted to humiliate him , that’s it !

      “….why did he (Mahinda) kiss the tarmac ? wasn’t he overjoyed after hearing the good news ?…..”

      i am quoting my own statement above , you didn’t understand my query , what was the good news ? did he know that Prabakaran was captured when he returned to SL on 16 or 17 ? if so why did it take until 19 to declare the good news ? do you get my point now ?

        Srilal (a misused Sinhala name)

        C’mon Srilal, everybody knows there is a time difference in the world. I knew you were mistaken by videos.

        All those You Tube Videos are not uploaded in Sri Lanka. I am really surprised now about your general knowledge.

        The rest of the rubbish in your comment I have already answered. The “dressing back dead terrorist Prabhakaran part” is good for a comedy.

        The game is already over now Srilal. Mahinda is definitely coming back to power at the election on August 17. I have no wish to waste my time on useless people like you any more. Read some quality books, that is my advice to you.

          Champa ,

          I was anticipating this sort of answer from you , not surprising at all . i’m glad that i have managed to corner you , where you have no more BS answers !

          read all my responses to all your BS statements in this very topic, you have no answers , all left unanswered . wonder why ?

          we had Dayan J , David Blacker , Max et al so called hot shots dominating here long time ago , all were made to disappear into thin air , where are they today ?

          Champa , Mahinda Is a born criminal and a mass murder , he will have to pay for all the crimes which he has been doing , that day is not far away , start counting , days are numbered for the Mafia king and all his cohorts.

            “….Champa , Mahinda Is a born criminal and a mass murder , he will have to pay for all the crimes which he has been doing , that day is not far away , start counting , days are numbered for the Mafia king and all his cohorts…..”

            Only in your dream, man. You are wasting your time in accusing Mahinda unfairly without any evidence. There are millions of people who will come forward to defend Mahinda with life, when the need arises.

            Nobody can corner me. I only make comments on news items where I think is useful. I ignore the others.

              This is what i have been told by numerous so called hot shots after many many debates , they just pull out citing all sort of excuses don’t worry champa you not the only one , one Abhaya was the last one to follow your foot step.

              PS: i will continue to educate other readers , so watch out !

                You are mistaken. I came forward after January 9 exclusively in support of Mahinda. I work single mindedly like many of his other loyalists until we see that justice is brought to him.

                My duty towards the country is over once Mahinda takes the reigns of this country in his hands again. Unlike your idle comments, there is a purpose in each and every word I type in my comments.

                  Champa ,

                  You are absolutely hilarious , so you think “there is a purpose in each and every word I type in my comments.” for you there is only one purpose that is , no matter what , Your God Mahinda is always right !! is there any thing more than that to you champa ?

                  Going back to my original comment which Mafia king physically assaulting captured terrorist leader prabakaran , is way beyond accepted all norms and ethics , of course that is for civilized people , isn’t it Champa ? Luckily all of us had a rare opportunity to witness,as to how Mafia king would have been behaving within closed doors for last 9 odd years , what an embarrassment ! of-course there are few hundreds crazy , lunatics there to defend every silly action of this mass murderer , you are one of them , i read how you defended his thuggery behaviour in public. karuna is now denying his original comment , but i’ve my doubts given the circumstances,definitely , Mafia king would have mercilessly beaten the terrorist leader before letting others to finish him off ,now only we know how R Premadasa ( Ranjan Wijerathna ) finished Rohana Wijeweera , it took more than 2 decades to come out the truth , i’m dead sure , this chilling story would come to light before too long ! certainly Mafia king and all his extended family don’t deserve to enjoy the freedom which we enjoy today.

    M R has been a street fighter from his school days. On the previous occasion, the recipient was the party Secretary who had to enter a hospital to check whether the blow had caused internal bleeding. It looks as if his followers enjoy the blows from their leader when they step out of line.

    I held his hand in admiration: MR supporter

    The 35-year-old three wheeler driver, Hewa Narandeniyage Chaminda of Makandura Kalahagama, who was involved in the controversial Akuressa incident of grasping the hands of former President and Kurunegala UPFA candidate Mahinda Rajapaksa said he held his hand in admiration when he was moving towards the stage among the crowd but he couldn’t get his hand back due to the pressure exerted by the crowd gathered around him.

    Describing the incident to the media at the Matara UPFA main office he said,”I have been an SLFP supporter for the past 18 years. From my first vote I voted for the SLFP at every election. Even after his defeat I went to Medamulana and Carlton house to see him. I have on several occasions greeted him by holding his hands”

    “I had consumed some beer when I went to the Akuressa meeting. Mahinda Rajapaksa was proceeding to the meeting passing the spot where we were waiting. As usual I felt the urge to touch and hold his hand through the crowd. However, with a sudden surge of the people from behind it became much difficult for me to get my hand back which was squeezed among the crowd at the time. The rumours that I was trying to remove his gold rings were baseless. He didn’t attempt to assault me. I regret this happening as I had a high regard for the savior of the country,” he said.

    Akuressa SLFP organizer Manoj Sirisena who arranged the media discussion said the UNP was exploiting the incident for political advantages trying to tarnish the image of the former president. He asked the people not to be misled by the false stories being spread by the UNP.
