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.

      Do we see any double appearing here this time to ridicule the incumbent president ? MR and his co. has no whatsoever respect to anyone. Those who had been attacking calling Prez Sirisena as ” Sirisena”… Aiya Sirisena, today all these men are forced to go after Prez is the greater joke of all times.
      Rajapakshe never thought that he would be sent to this level by Jan 8th.
      That says everything, if he had a brain the size of a needle head, he could sense it actually. Not his men ever thought it either. How idiotic and stupid all those should have been.

      But this is not anyone this a 2 time president, a candidate and man with a massive security. A dignified leader will never raise his hand no matter what !

      This shows true colors of MARA, all the hush hush talk of fits of MARA while in party meetings are proved with this one action. The man has no class, not capable of controlling himself, he is not sound in his mind. He is blinded by what lies ahead for him and his family in future. His only objective is to try and find a way to avoid that.
      I don’t understand why people in Sri Lankan are so blind. This is the culture MARA and the clan cultivated. This is how our people behave a simple word/action is enough to resort to violence. Every where in country this is what u see.
      We saw ample evidence of this sort of behavior while MARA and GORA were running (ruining) the country.

      Inconveneient Truth,

      It is incoveneient to you. Mahinda was surrounded by its supporters and his hooligans were around him. Mahinda was a Prime Minister,President for more than a decade and he wants to become a Prime Minister. Do you know what sort of qualities you expect from a former President who claims he is a Buddhist? I would say the good qualities such as “kindness, tolerant & Calm”, not “anger, thuggerism, violence”.
      It shows thathe is internally, psychologically undergoing suffering from fear of people. He suspects anyone who comes closer to him. In his mind he must be hearing the voices.

        Not only MR is hearing voices but he sees white flags each time he closes his eyes. MR can see all, including Lasantha waving hands whom he got killed. MR better write his Obituary like Lasantha, confessing all he killed or got killed before the 17th of August.

      CT

      I actually want to thank CT for publishing this video thereby giving us – Mahinda loyalists – a good platform to voice the TRUE STORY of the video. The Sinhala caption was entirely wrong.

      I first saw the video on CT. I visit only 1 or 2 selected websites and also a few newspapers only. Therefore the opportunity I received in CT was really great.

      As many people now know, Mahinda didn’t actually try to attack anybody, he only defended himself from the ruffian who pulled his hand aggressively and twisted. Self defence is accepted any where in the world.

      The incident was well planned with several cameras, otherwise nobody will be able to capture the incident so precisely.

      Fortunately Mahinda promptly reacted and defended himself thereby avoided any embarrassment planned by the culprits.

        Champa ,

        your relentless pursue on white washing a born criminal is laughable , only a few hundred thousand die hard racists/lunatics still go on worshipping the war lord ,contrary to your believes , Karuna A , one time close ally of the Mafia king has revealed how Mahinda went on assaulting the captured Terrorist leader Prabakaran way back in 2009, no any decent leader would ever go to such low level , but Mahinda did , why ? he is a born criminal , Champa please spare with us bit more , time will do talking .

          Karuna, Karuna, am I surprised that he made a U turn? Absolutely not, because he made a U turn from LTTE too.

          ” …….Mahinda went on assaulting the captured Terrorist leader Prabakaran way back in 2009, no any decent leader would ever go to such low level , but Mahinda did…… “

          Is there proof? Actually no. I am surprised sometimes how easily one can convince lies to some people.

          Mahinda never assaulted fallen victims or surrendered terrorists. Actually he was in Jordan when he received the good news. What Karuna says is an utter lie. One has to analyse as to why Karuna had to lie? The answer is “TO SURVIVE”.

          It is so amusing to see the speed in which some cowards start lying against Mahinda whenever they change their allegiance to the UNP.

          Karuna is sold, as we know now. But what made him to lie? The reason is Ranil.

          Karuna changed his allegiance to a Party, whose leader, Ranil boasts about the one month Training Course he received in the US in order to defeat Mahinda. He must have received tuition on “How to mislead a Nation against a Great Leader and what type of lies and insults one should hurl at the Leader in order to make people lose their trust and respect on him” as it was what actually had happened.

          This is what Ranil has to offer to his juniors, team-mates and other politicians in his party. I am sure he must be worshipping the Book “Anything for a Vote – Dirty Tricks and Cheap Shots” by Joseph Cummins. (A new book will be published on Oct 27, 2015 with an addition to the title as “October Surprises to the US Presidential Campaigns”.

          Ranil is the reason as to why people don’t see any leadership qualities in any single politician in the UNP. He is a disgrace to the previous leaders of the party, like JRJ, Premadasa, Kotalawela, Senanayake…. etc. We have never heard any of those former UNP leaders using dirty tricks and cheap shots to gain power. They fought face to face honourably and conceded defeat with dignity. They never carried out third rate underhand conspiracies against their political opponents.

          Ranil even said at three different occasions that he will see to the vanishing, burial and ruination of Mahinda. Never in the entire political history of Sri Lanka we heard such venom against another leader. Ranil’s malicious words pierced the hearts of millions of people who are very affectionate towards their leader Mahinda, who saved the country from brutal terrorists, putting his own life at risk, even today.

          People strongly dislike Ranil and Sirisena for back-stabbing and conspiring against Mahinda and misleading them with lies about him, in order for a cheap political gain.

          People never forgive them for what they did to Mahinda, from running up to the Presidential Election with lies and insults and all the harassments and psychological torture he had to undergo unfairly even after the defeat.

          Millions of people now gather around Mahinda to correct their mistake and bring justice to him.

          At the same time, knowing Ranil’s and Sirisena’s political chicanery very well now, people keep their eyes wide open for any possible election fraud or vote rigging on August 17.

            Champa ,

            Heh …..Heh…..Heh…….Hooo …..Ha…

            Have i touched a raw nerve of yours ? you seem to be quite agitated by karuna’s revelations , why ? motives behind Karuna’s spilling the beans could be any thing , it really doesn’t matter , as long as the story is a genuine one , who cares about the motives ? if the story is a fabricated lie , yes it’s some thing we should be careful
            of , tell you the truth ,even i don’t know whether it’s true or not , i merely quoted what was in the media , that’s all ! going by Mahinda’s colourful resume , i wouldn’t be surprised , if he really acted in that manner.

            Champa you have tried to change the subject from “Mahinda” to Ranil here, why ? i’m not a fan of Ranil either , unlike you , i don’t worship politicians , they are all crooks , it’s a universal truth ! in this very forum i have severally criticized Ranil’s many shortcomings extensively,i,e greed for power, authoritarian governance style , lack of vision , supporting Mafia king and his family etc etc . if you want to be taken seriously , better to learn to call a spade a spade , champa !

            “Ranil even said at three different occasions that he will see to the vanishing, burial and ruination of Mahinda. Never in the entire political history of Sri Lanka we heard such venom against another leader. Ranil’s malicious words pierced the hearts of millions of people who are very affectionate towards their leader Mahinda, who saved the country from brutal terrorists, putting his own life at risk, even today.”

            again , you display your immaturity and childish behaviour , who would get hurt by merely listening to a politician ? all Ranil had said was , he would politically burie Mahinda , now if you were hurt for that , i would urged you to seek immediate medical attention , it’s hilarious !

            Tell me champa , i’ve seen many illiterate people worshipping Mahinda from dawn to dusk , are you one of them ? if so , you really belong to North Korea or Tamil Nadu !

              There is no evidence whether Karuna had said that or not. As it was taken up, I replied. I don’t easily let pass any chance where I can correct some misgivings about Mahinda.

              About Ranil, I didn’t aim only you, but the wider circle. I always grab all opportunities where I can showcase my opinion.

              Again, showing my loyalty to Mahinda is always branded childish and immature while praising Ranil and Sirisena branded as wise. Mahinda supporters are branded as illiterates while Ranil and Sirisena’s supporters are branded as intellectuals. Why? Doesn’t that show the immaturity? Why attack Mahinda so much? Because he brought peace where others fail? Some opinions against Mahinda are entirely baseless.

              There is no hero worshipping but admiring a Legend with good reason, that is what I am. Nobody in NK or Tamil Nadu has any similarity to Mahinda. Trying to compare him with somebody else is pointless because he is a phenomenon.

              You have to choose either Mahinda or Ranil at the election. Still on the fence?

            Champa ,

            “Mahinda never assaulted fallen victims or surrendered terrorists. Actually he was in Jordan when he received the good news. “

            Are you cock sure about it ? then what is this “White flag ” story which appeared soon after the war ? was it another lie created by FM Sarath fonseka to undermine your greatest hero ? FM Fonseka had to retrieve his statement due to an internal pressure at that particular time , let’s see who is lying and who is telling the truth , very soon we ‘ll be able to see the real side of the story . as to your assertion , Mahinda been in Jordan when Prabakaran was captured , is true . i also vividly remember how Maha Rajano went on kissing the tarmac upon his arrival at the Katunayake air port , why did he kiss the tarmac ? wasn’t he overjoyed after hearing the good news ? there was a gap between Mahinda’s arrival and Prabakaran’s murder , 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 ? i’ve to admit there is no concrete evidence to back Karuna’s assertion , but certainly there is a suspicion as to what transpired between those two vital days ? are we told the real story by the then government ? was Prabakaran actually captured dead or alive ? Champa , a secret can’t be kept as a secret forever , one day it will come out , one way or another .

            as to Prabakaran’s head wound , there is great suspicion among the interested parties , 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 ! who got him undressed ? why ?

            PS: i’m not sympathising or regretting the death of the ruthless terrorist leader Prabakaran , he richly deserved what he got in the end, but we ought to know what went behind the curtain . this is like Rohana wijeweera’s death , finally we came to know how Wijeweera died !

        Medamaluwa . C

        (Two wrongs don’t make a right, but in all fairness, I am compelled to answer your insulting remark as I have seen similar insults before too, from others).

        ” ……It is difficult to change the colours and habits of the uneducated uncultured goondas ……”

        Oh yeah, you are right. The entire country saw on January 8, the so called “Elite”, “Intellectual”, “Cultured” and “Well Educated” lot voted for a ‘Grama Sevaka” who couldn’t even get through Grade 8 and made him the President of Sri Lanka! Good job by intellectuals! Your “great choice” boasted a lot about the Queen shaking his hand without hand gloves and embarrassed the entire country with his meekness, ill manners, serious lack of communication skills …… the list goes on and on…..

        Even before that, the so called “Elite Intellectuals in Colombo” elected a “Trishaw Driver” as their Mayor. What for the telling of their brains?

        Interestingly, Mahinda loyalists, that you run down as “uneducated uncultured goondas” NEVER voted for Trishaw Drivers or Grama Sevakas.

        Instead, they voted in the past and going to vote again for President Mahinda Rajapaksa, who is;
        a born Leader,
        an educated Attorney-at-Law,
        an eloquent and fluent Speaker in English and Sinhala both,
        a veteran Politician,
        a great Statesman,
        a True Patriot who put his country before his life,
        a born Warrior who took the right decision at the right time to defeat the world’s most ruthless terrorist organization,
        a master Strategist who introduced miracle development projects which would otherwise have been only dreams for Sri Lankans,
        a Man of Honour,
        a humble Politician hailing from a rural village who feels the pulse of the nation,
        a respectable Leader who could stand abreast with other World Leaders with dignity,
        a faithful friend to young and the old equally, and
        a Noble Father Figure to a proud nation.

        MR will be the People’s Choice on August 17 for the post of first Executive Prime Minister of Sri Lanka and his supporters will include well educated, cultured, elites and intellectuals TOO.

Sirima B (Felix) let him enter the law college without proper entrance qualifications and entrance exam , Late Jayraj F had revealed the skill level of Mahinda R , Champa you don’t know what you are talking about ;hence , you are showing your gross ignorance here, next time do some research before you comment on public forums please.

        Thanks for the info, Colin.

        This does suggest that it was a set-up; an organized smear campaign by his political opponents – whoever they are.

        It’s going a bit far when the posting and suggestive headline provokes comments inciting people to murder Rajapaksa by shooting or strangling him as CT’s commentator “Edward Snowden Assange” did, until I protested about it. If Rajapaksa is assassinated we’ll know who to hold responsible for spreading such ideas.

        This attempted framing of Rajapaksa, and the barrage of anonymous commentators trying to outdo each other in their crude insults, have revealed to me the ugly mentality of CT readers and commentators as a whole, based on the voting and comments in this thread.

        The fact that other “news” outlets ran this “story” increases, rather than decreases, the culpability of Colombo Telegraph and its editor, Uvindu Kurukulasuriya, and raises some obvious questions.

        What was the source of the “story”?
        Who posted it on YouTube?
        Which political parties were involved?

          as long as footage is authentic ,who cares about the source or authorship ? those who want to cover up Mahinda’s true identity , is busy finding scape goats or diverting the real topic from public scrutiny.

    True nature is always disclosed itself.
    No one can hide Mahinda Rajapaksa’s thuggery type nature.
    His wickedness and cruelty is always exposed by himself.
    Now everyone know how he acted in Temple Trees residence as Powerful president.

    Mahinda Rajapaksa is digging his own grave by himself by this time.

    Please do not vote for this wicked man….Next time he completely destroy the whole mass.

      “Snowdon Edward Assange”

      This is the third comment you have made, inciting in different ways, the murder of former president Rajapaksa.

      You have the temerity to cowardly incite violence against a clearly popular politician because you are fuelled by irrational hatred while cowardly hiding behind the names of two whistle-blowers who are widely respected (Edward Snowden and Julian Assange).

      I hope, wherever you are, that you are identified, arrested and prosecuted for your actions.

      I note that in response to my last objection, CT deleted on one your posted comments (the most blatant one, where you asked people to shoot him, in the interests of patriotism). That’s not good enough – CT should make a public apology for any harm done, block you from commenting and stop publishing articles that are INTENDED to generate this kind of hatred.

    Supun Jayawardhane (Older comment from the previous page)

    The pathetic UNP is hanging onto every straw these days.

    It was now revealed that the incident was an organized attempt.

    Luckily Mahinda was strong enough to defend himself against being pulled towards the crowd. In a civilized world, it is called SELF DEFENCE. In UNP’s uncivilized world, it is called an attack.

    People are boycotting UNP, JVP and DP meetings (SF’s DP doesn’t even have 20 people in their meetings these days). They are now desperately looking for every crumb of incident.

    UNP & JVP are already hopeless, desperate, guilty, ashamed and defeated even one month before August 17.

    That is why they even go to the Courts in order to reduce Mahinda’s security while they let SF use all his privileges. The bloody traitors of the country is trying to make Mahinda a targeted prey to LTTE, underworld murderers, CIA and RAW.

    This great leader Mahinda Rajapaksa who saved our country from the world’s most ruthless terrorist organization has become a vicious target of murder for bankrupt political parties in Sri Lanka, such as UNP, JVP, DP and TNA (a cat’s paw of the LTTE) who have previous records for murders.

      Champa seems to visit all the meetings of all the different factions. Interesting huh? More confusing is the fact that Champa says that some faction is deliberately attempting to make Mahinda a prey to the LTTE. Later on she says that MR saved the Nation from LTTE. So that means that the LTTE that was destroyed was not destroyed or it has reincarnated itself? Now I am confused?

      Blatant lies, fanaticism, hero worshipping can take you nowhere, I suppose.

        “…. Later on she says that MR saved the Nation from LTTE. So that means that the LTTE that was destroyed was not destroyed or it has reincarnated itself?……..”

        Nowhere in my comment I said Mahinda “completely destroyed” LTTE terrorists. I said Mahinda “saved our country from barbarian LTTE terrorist blood suckers”.

        Our armed forces couldn’t destroy them completely and protect the country because many hardcore LTTE terrorists escaped to Western countries, North America and India and Mahinda took many measures in preventing them from coming back to the country.

        However, after he was defeated, now with the blessings of this short-sighted UNP government, all LTTE terrorist remnants and terrorist sympathizers who were exiled, are returning to Sri Lanka. Some former hardcore terrorists even contest for the election.

        “…..Champa seems to visit all the meetings of all the different factions. Interesting huh?….”

        I don’t have to visit every meeting physically. Thanks to having had a new technology savvy President like Mahinda Rajapaksa for 9 thriving years in Sri Lanka, I can ‘visit’ various meetings while comfortably sitting on my couch.

        You say “……Blatant lies, fanaticism, hero worshipping can take you nowhere, I suppose…..”

        I love former President Mahinda Rajapaksa very, very much. That is not fanaticism or hero worshipping. That is true love coming from the bottom of my heart for a great leader and a true patriot who put his country first even before his life.

        Same like me, the uppermost majority in Sri Lanka love Mahinda very much. They have never loved any other leader as much as they love Mahinda.

        The world should know that the election results on January 8 didn’t reflect people’s true feelings. It was a high-jacked victory by Sirisena and Ranil by a systematic misleading of the masses against our noble leader.

        People have well realised their mistake and now eagerly awaiting to correct that monumental blunder, on August 17.

              whereas your other fake hero fled the country amidst height of the war , giving lousy excuses.

              Champa your hero , Mahinda stole Tsunami aids , who could do such a cruel thing to fellow hapless humans ? hundreds of thousands of internal displaced citizens were languishing in make shift camps for months and months , yet this heartless crook kept that money at the SCB of Rajagiriya , what a devil ?

              in 2005 ,yet again Mahinda had committed another criminal offence , he bribed Prabakaran to boycott the NE presidential election , Tiran A’s live telecast was on air , since then it is not a public secret any more , i know only blind Mahinda worshippers quite hesitant to take these real facts as facts , they inclined to think all these are fabricated stories to sling mud at their messiah. all i can say is , please bear with us little bit more ……

      Don’t be fooled by Mahinda. This is his true nature. As he did the Samething to SusilP (slapped him) becuase he did not give nominations to Duminda S. What do you expect from the thugs?

      what does mahinda think about the people? People are not blind to see what he was doing. It is obvious that he is trying to hit the fellow and now blaming the government about his security! He has given highest security as a past president which other candidates has not be been provided.

        Damn

        “……. He has given highest security as a past president which other candidates has not be been provided…….”

        That is an utter lie. Mahinda was not given even 1/3 of the security facilities entitled for a former President. His security detail can’t walk, they should be given proper transportation and lodgings. He was not even given his official residence or an office in Colombo, for nearly 7 months now.

        Mahinda is not just a former President, he is the leader who saved the country. All those traitors who are against him today for cheap political gain, saved their lives from LTTE bombs, thanks to Mahinda. Well, although a few traitors deliberately forget everything what Mahinda did for the benefit of this country, the people who love Sri Lanka never forget that they owe their lives to Mahinda.

        Other candidates……what did other candidates did for the country? Did they even a lift a finger against the barbarian LTTE?

        SF was given more facilities and privileges than MR during the election. Nobody goes to Courts against SF misusing his privileges but all bankrupt politicians go against Mahinda to find ways to reduce his security and put his life in danger.

          As to Mahinda’s war victory , you are like a parrot , keep on blabbering the same old record millions of times , get it now , it was NOT a Mahinda’s victory , primarily it was Army foot soldiers war , then the list goes on , obviously you lack the intelligence to properly analyse the whole scenario ; hence , acting like “Pradeshya saba MP’s Mantara ” 30 years of war …..30 years of war…… 30 years of war……..

      People who knows mahinda very well , knows what kind a person he is and it was not all UNP or JVP ers. Majority are SLFP ers. People who dont know about his real nature called him so called patriot and consider him as the saviour. We knew this from the begining. You ask everyone who worked at temple Trees those days and close to him before. A person who can kill someone with guns in both hands in 1983, what do you expect? Some people still trying here to give him a saint look are traitors to the nation.

        Sapumal,
        mahinda is a guy who dared to be flanked to Gadapi few years ago. I myself happened to see pics – on which he had taken being that close to Gadafi. If the man had a the brain the size of a needle head – would he have ever allowed to take such pictures. It was a national betrayal acutally. Just because his folly alowwed, the bugger should have been well aware of the fact- that as the leader of the nation, he represent us to the world. Who else beaved so evasively when it goes with state affairs as MR ? Nobody.
        There he may have thought to attack the west showing that MR is a person who would even make ties with Gadafi.
        I truly believe the REAL nature of MAHINDA JARAPKASHE is not yet known to anyone. He is unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable. unpredictable.

        “A person who can kill someone with guns in both hands in 1983…..”

        Who is this person? President Mahinda? Any proof? No, as usual, right? When you don’t produce proof, it will become a lie spread by foul mouths or it is called a hearsay, do you agree?

        So the “killing” part is a big lie. But “he can use guns with both hands”, man…, I like that, don’t want to hide my admiration. He should have taken part in Shooting sports in Summer Olympic Games.

        President Mahinda proved in Akuressa as we saw in the video that, if the need arises he is capable of defending himself without waiting for his security. That is a relief. He proved again that he is physically, mentally and politically very strong. If this happened to someone like Ranil, he would definitely rush home cancelling the rally.

        Obviously the incident was pre-planned by someone, because it is not normal at a public rally, anybody pulling President Mahinda’s hand in such intensity, twisting and not releasing. MR was attacked, he reacted promptly and defended himself. That is the story. Ranil, I don’t think stoop to such a cheap level, they should be Mangala’s boorish dogs.

          Dear Champa,
          It’s good that you ask me about proof and I really appreciate your claim as it s lie. You may not know. That’s ok. We shouldn’t know everything. It may like In a cow boy movie. Exactly. But that’s what he did. There are eye witness accounts and evidence. Sarath N. De Silva knows the case. President Sirisena is one of the eye witness. You may think its one person. No….it’s double murder in broad day light in a junction. It was 1983 during the Mulkirigala by election time. Chamal Rajapakshe contested from SLFP. If you know about how to get legal records, find out now. The case was dismissed due to lack of evidence. But what really happened was they have threaten and got support from then UNP govt.(John Amaratunga acted on behalf of JR). MR spent three months in jail. At that time he attend his mothers funeral from the prison. Later he released by the courts due to his usual. gimmicks. But people who suffered are still suffering like the same poor peasants.hope this is enough. If you want more ask CT or Uvindu.

            Oh, this is a famous story. I heard this from my late father. MR was proven innocent. You know how? A man who had climbed to a nearby coconut tree to pluck coconuts have witnessed the incident. After Mahinda sent to jail on suspicion, the man has come forward to give evidence.

            The case was not dismissed due to lack of evidence as your distorted story. The court gave the verdict making Mahinda NOT guilty for the case. Mahinda was proven innocent.

            It is now your comment against Mahinda which should be dismissed.

Bribing Prabakaran is going to haunt him , there are ample evidence to prove his and Basil’s involvement , this time no body is going to save their sorry a…., please call it ” International conspiracy “

                Who says Mahinda is old? Mahinda is 70 going on good 50. Akuressa incident clearly showed that Mahinda is physically and mentally strong. He didn’t wait for his security but tried to defend himself.

                If something like that happened to Ranil, he will be in the Intensive Care Unit.

                    Your mistake is, you are only aware of paid writers assigned by Ranil, as he doesn’t have loyalists.

    No bloody traitor is DARE ENOUGH to pull a trigger at Mahinda.

    Mahinda is surrounded by millions of Patriots who genuinely love this country and blessed by all Deities who protect the Buddhism in Sri Lanka. Nobody can take his life, no matter how much a dross like you dream.

    The traitors of the country are so desperate of the imminent defeat, as people see now, they are trying to resort to their last-ditch by planning to take Mahinda’s life before the election, by PURPOSELY reducing his security.

    Under the blessing of MS, CBK and UNP -Ranil has been organized to physical harm to Mahinda Rajapkase.

    That is the typical politics of UNP’s organization methods.
    Fully back by MS Defense Ministry outlets.

    Is this ‘good governances’ of MS Junta regime?

    MS, UNP -Ranil and CBK could not forget that present ongoing peace, security and stability of ours small Island is remain because of that Mahinada Raajapakse leadership of totally defeated of Tamil LTTE ruthless Terrorist 2009 May.

    MR ended 30 war led by LTTE, war was originated by UNP-JRJ, Ransinghe Premadasa and Ranil Wick.. clique since 1977.

    MR is national leader and who protected sovereignty and Territorial Integrity Sri lanka.

    All Sri Lankan must keep personal gratitude to MR, which that irrespective of their political believes as our national leader.

    MS led junta should not undermine that norms by their misrule political power to be killed, MR ongoing political campaign.

      Senthil

      Don’t lie. Mahinda didn’t kill a single Tamil.

      As done by any other sovereign country, in order to protect the country and its citizens from being killed on daily basis, gallant Sri Lankan armed forces took a brave move to destroy LTTE terrorists, NOT Tamils.

      It was the barbarian LTTE leader Prabhakaran who used Tamils as a human shield at the last phase of the war to save his life and escape. The outcome was our valiant armed forces carrying out a humanitarian operation in order to save as many Tamils as possible in their limited capacity and destroying the terrorist Leader. More than 26,000 of our soldiers were killed by terrorists and more than 24,000 were lost their eyes, limbs and legs in this humanitarian operation.

      Terrorists have no ethnicity, terrorists are terrorists who instil fear in innocent people by ruthlessly massacring them.

      “…. MR & co fallen into the war trap while all other ‘intelligent rulers’ kept clear……”

      What a joke, you can call them “shameful cowards”. Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa was the only ruler who had a backbone to go against the most ruthless terrorist organization in the world and its leader Prabhakran who didn’t even hesitate for a moment to kill Rajiv Gandhi who initially helped him and his own, prominent Tamil leaders such as Amirthalingam, Thiruchelvam, Kadirgamar, etc.

      All other Sri Lankan ruler were scared to take any action against terrorists for fear of their lives.

      Fearless, lionhearted Mahinda put his country before his life. Being an extraordinary leader he chose to make the impossible, possible.

      Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s name will be written in the history of Sri Lanka in golden letters. His name is already engraved in people’s hearts permanently. Nothing and nobody can erase his name.

    I have written this letter to the man who has posted this misleading footage on YouTube on 21 July 2015:

    Dear Nipun Peiris,

    This is the only video you have posted that has attracted many viewers, since you uploaded your first clip a year ago. This clip, which you have titled only “Mahinda Rajapaksa” has been used to incite hatred and abuse of President Rajapaksa by presenting it under a headline screaming “Rajapaksa attempts to attack UPFA supporter” in the expatriate on-line newspaper, Colombo Telegraph or CT (based in London, and run by Uvindu Kurukulasuriya, who has been claiming to be one of the “threatened journalists” who lived in “self-imposed exile” because of the supposed “tyranny” of “Rajapaksa regime”)..

    Nipun Peiris, the clip of President Rajapaksa being manhandled at one of his own rallies that you agreed to, or arranged to, share (or sell) for posting on CT provoked a barrage of repulsive abuse against this popular political leader and national hero, as well as incitement to assassinate him – readers were asked to shoot him and strangle him, by an anonymous commentator, who was allowed to post their comments on his website, by the CT editor Kurukulasuriya.

    At least one comment was removed, after I protested about it, though the damage has been done, whether or not this much loved man,is actually harmed. The comment requested any patriot to shoot Rajapaksa as a favour and self-sacrifice for the rest of the 20 million others, posted by an anonymous coward hiding under the moniker of “Edward Snowden Assange”.

    This is a serious matter.

    Please visit Colombo Telegraph and explain to us (CT readers and commentators) how it is that your mobile phone footage of President Rajapaksa has been used in this way, as well as responding to me here.

    I agree with Champa 100%.
    Actually national leaders do not wait until others (including their security guards) come and protect them.
    A good case in point is that of Jean Chretien who was Canada’s prime minister for 3 times. On Feb 15, 1996, most Canadians watched replays over and over on national TV news showing Prime Minister Chretien stride thro’ a crowd of people, reach out toward a man, grab him by the throat and pushed him to the ground. The man,Bill Clennett suffered injuries and lost a tooth due to the fall and Prime minister was charged with assault.
    Prime Minister Chretien said he had to act in self defense (since the Quebec separatist were ‘targeting’ him at the time). For the readers’ understanding it should be noted that Quebec is a French speaking province that has been trying to separate from Canada for the last few decades. Prime Minister Chretien who is a French himself from Quebec was against the separatist movement and defeated it by passing necessary acts in parliament (and also by other political tactics).
    The majority of Canadians defended Chretien’s act and supported him during TV shows that debated if Prime Minister were to be charged with criminal assault. At the end, Quebec Justice Minister Paul Begin announced at a news conference that he would not let the case proceed. Just like President Mahinda Rajapaksa of Sri Lanka, Prime Minister Jean Chretien of Canada was a lawyer, tough decision maker, a fighter against separatism, and a very popular leader!

They must go for the truth. This is real investigative journalism. But our journalists only want to publish any rubbish without finding the truth and correct what was wrong. There was also a story of MR attacking Susil but it proved to be a blatant lie by the media. This is poor journalism.
