Video: Nandasena Govt. Want To Conceal The Real Masterminds Behind Easter Bombings: AKD

The Government wants to hide the real mastermind behind the Easter Sunday attacks, JVP Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake said, slamming President Nandasena Gotabaya Rajapaksa for failing to make a report by the Commission of Inquiry into the Easter Sunday bombings in 2019 public.

There were two things that the people need to know about the Easter bombings, Dissanayake told a National People’s Power meeting. The first was who was responsible for not preventing the terror attack when it had warning of it. “The second question is who was the real leader of the suicide bombers – who did they answer to?” he demanded.

JVP Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake

The JVP leader said President Nandasena and his government wanted to conceal the real masterminds behind the Easter Sunday Attacks. The easiest way to figure that out was the old village way, Dissanayake explained.

“In the village, if the cops want to catch the person who has set up a gun wire trap to hunt in the jungle, they can’t do that by studying what the trap looks like. They must look for the person who carries the hunted prey on his shoulders,” he said.

“If the Easter attacks were a hunt, let’s try to figure out who carried the prey on his shoulders for the past one and half years after the bombings. Who used the bombings for an entire election campaign and used them to turn politics upside down in the country? Who carried the Easter attacks on his shoulders?” he demanded.

Dissanayake insisted that the people had a right to know what was in the Easter Sunday Commission report. Those who had been appointed to study the commission report, including Johnston Fernando and Rohitha Abeygunawardhana were only good to make sure pieces of the report disappeared, he added.

“It’s one thing if this report was about the Rajapaksa family property or something. If that were the case, the people don’t need to know about it and the brothers and uncles can sort it out between themselves. But this report on the Easter Sunday bombings concerns public security – the people have a sacred right to know what its contents are,” Dissanayake charged. (By Chinthika De Silva

      Funny sense of logic AKD has…..
      .
      AKD is leading JVP because UNP government killed Rohana Wijeweera.
      So…..
      Obviously…..
      As the AKD is the one who is carrying the hunted “LEADERSHIP OF JVP” prey on his shoulders….
      AKD must be the “real leader of the killers of the Rohana Wijeweera”……….

      Dayan,

      The first thing that came to my mind when I read the decisions of the commission was…there is nothing mentioned in the report re: Gotabaya paying Saharan during Mahinda Rajapakse’s time.

      When this important factor was not investigated, although I agree with all the decisions of the commission, I feel that there had been some coverup by the commission.

      I am also not sure if the commission investigated Namal Kumara, if not then there has been this coverup as well.

    What is the real game? Here is a theory advanced by an intelligent friend who was in organisations rele in the Easter Bombing at the time it happened.

    “There are some things behind the Easter tragedy. I suspect that Mossad used Sharan group through ISIS to bring Gota to Power. I wrote about this in Ravaya during Presidential Election. I got my facts from A** and B**. They mentioned Gota & Israel connections Personally I know of the Israel funding agenda. It funded Bodubala Sena”.

    I leave it to you to decide whether this is absurd or possible. I believe that at this time conspiracy theories may contain a degree of fact.

    AKD is quite justified in being suspicious.

      eeakdavi,
      I fully agree with you that the purpose of this Easter Bombing is to bring Gota into power for the following reasons:
      * It was not targeted against military or Buddhists or Muslims or politicians. The target was Tamil and Sinhala Christians and westerners.
      * There was not a single shot from the attackers other than suicide bombing be fore or after bombing.
      * Timing of the bombing and nomination of Gota for presidency are closely associated.
      * the military and police intelligence services were well aware of this attack and allowed that to happen.

      You might get a bit closer to the truth if you replaced Mosad with Chinese intelligence. The previous government was set-up with backing from the USA and India. Mosad being Israeli could not have played a role in under mining that government. Israel does not act unless it sees some benefit for itself or it acts as proxy to the USA. The toppling of the previous Rajapakshe Government was considered a victory in the west in its efforts to block Chinese expansion into Sri Lanka. Ever since this happened the Chinese were plotting a come back using its proxies the Rajapkshe family of crooks. The attempt failed ( The coup ). The next attempt was what happened on Easter Sunday. AKD nailed it on the head. Who used the bombing as an excuse to hoodwink the voters.

      ‘Seeds of fact’ in conspiracy theories can be genetically modified to distort the truth.
      It will be safe to be specific about what is likely to be factual and what is not.
      At this rate number of connections Gota is supposed to have will far exceed the number that Prof. David would have seen in the most complex electrical circuit that he has dealt with.

        It does far exceeds any complex electrical circuits…if we look at all the killing fields from 1970 – 2019 – Easter Killings…

        Known Players – JVP, FP/TULF (PLOTE/TELO/LTTE/EPRLF…), GoSL, India and all the seas around us and the International Submarines/War ships..cruise missiles, not to miss out the riots and the killers.

        How do we know who killed whom????????? we know people died due to gun fire/bombs/explosions/suicide attacks. We the public respond with grieve and various parties responded to each other because they were the armed stake holders??

        All could be false flag operation…and we just had this going on for 50 years for a reason….we lost all that is normal to any humans.

        Then the secret services off all the nations and the soft powers who did all other business in the mist of all the destruction arms and trade.

        Then the UN withdrawal and the LTTE decimated and we only focus on GoSL and LTTE for investigations??

        Does any of this tell us how we lost our Nation and our loved ones????

        So what is true?? who’s narrative is a fact?? the same issue world over?

    What do you have to say about your association with Ebrahem Naana?

    The mastermind is the motive, which is retaliation for Christchurch incident. But Muslim politicians are trying to divert the investigations toward the Sinhala organizations and individuals who are concerned about the islamisation of Sri Lanka.

    The public has lost the interest in investigation when they saw the muslim extremist politician who had association with Saharan and his brother, was a member of the inquiry panel. And the length Yahapalana regime went to stop the arrest of Wilpathua eating parasite politician. Even his brother has been released without justifiable explanation.

    Where are the hundreds of Muslim families that had gone to join IS1S? Some suspect they return to Sri Lanka with Muslim politicians’ help.

    If Anura Kumara Dissanayake remembers how Lasantha Wickramatunga was killed in 2009 and todate the public doesn’t know who killed him and for what, he will not make such public comments implicating these people.

    Here we go again. I said it last year and I say it again: The Easter bombing plot was conceived and executed by the group of Islamic terroritsts led Zahran, who took their religion seriously and acted on their understanding of its teachings. The mastermind was Zahran. They were helped or at least inspired by ISIS in this dastardly deed. No others, including Muslim politicians, were involved.

    The parties accused by conspiracy theorists to be responsible for the bombings depend on their prejudices. Anti-pohottuwa nuts think the pohottuwa was behind the bombings. Muslim nuts think Israel was behind it. Anti-western nuts think the West (CIA in particular) was behind, etc., etc. No prizes for guessing who would have been accused had the Pohottuwa been in power at the time.

    Can the conspiracy theorists please resolve their differences by agreeing that an alien spacecraft took representatives of Pohottowa, Israel (MOSAD), CIA, etc. to a planet in the Andromeda galaxy, where they hatched the Easter bombing plot and hired Zahran’s group to carry it out after returning to Earth?

      Your simplisitic explanation does not hold for many reasons. First of all an e-mail was intercepted where one of Zaharans group begged ISIS who had no idea about this bombing to claim ownership of it. Days after the fact ISIS put out some sort of statement alluding to this bombing as one of theirs. This was totally uncharacteristic behavior for ISIS and considered dubious. We also know that these fellows were on the military intelligence pay-role when Nande was SOD. We also caugth a glimpse of truth when Zaharan’s wife admitted that this source of funding continued even after the fall of the previous Rajapakshe government. We also know Sirisena is definitely involved by his own actions and inactions such as arresting DIG Nalaka Silva who was hot on the trail of Zaharan on frivolous charges. So did Sira do this alone. If so what was his motive?

        Read carefully before you comment. I wrote, “They [Zahran and his group] were helped OR AT LEAST INPSIRED by ISIS in this dastardly deed” (emphasis added). If you don’t know the meaning of “inspire,” then look it up in the dictionary.

        People like Pottu Amman and Zahran were reportedly paid by the military for intelligence information. If, as you say, “this source of funding continued even after the fall of the previous Rajapakshe government,” this confirms that Zahran was used by the Rajapakshe’s government for intelligence purposes only. You refute yourself.

        You are obviously one of those “anti-Pohottuwa nuts” I referred to in my earlier post. What is your theory? Zahran, who preached hate against non-Muslims and called for their death, accepted money from the Rajapakshes to blow himself, his followers and their family members to smithereens just so that they could help the Rajapakshes to come to power, the same Rajapakshes during whose time in power we saw numerous attacks against Muslims starting from 2012 culminating in Darga Town?

        Always educate yourself before you express an opinion. Reading the Koran would be a good starting point in the present case.

          .
          Are there evidence that Zahran and his group was closely supported by ISIS ?
          .
          I think the evidence that are becoming clear Rajakashes are behind that disaster, no body else.
          Sirisena the donkey from Polonanaruwa was tamed for the disaster that is why the bugger was out of the country, without having appointed an acting prez during his foreign trip. Where are the information regarding all this ?
          .
          Zaharan had been paid salaries by Mahinda Rajakshe govt, but the very same men in power today keep it away from the stupid people, not uttering a single word as to why Rajapkashe criminals paid to Zaharan then ?????????

          People, current situation was well predictable long before RAJAPAKSHES were coming to power. You should not have studied ROCKET science to get it. Today, what is going on correct path ? Former defence secretary has been thrilling rural corners by wasting people s funds….. while people are struggling to their 3 meals. His performance as a president is not even comparable to that of a rural GRAMA sevaka. What else can we expect ???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

      You see there are devout Muslims who are prepared to be blown into pieces in whole families for the sake of Rajapaksa family.
      Actually Mahinda Rajapaksa has direct contacts with Allah.
      Israel is Allah’s representative to control His territory on earth. Allah instructed Mosad to organise necessary logistics and promised a higher quota of virgins for Zahran brothers.
      Ladies, I suppose have been promised to restore their lost virginity.

    Long reports suffer the risk of remaining unready.
    The Commission would have been wise to provide an executive summary accessible to all interest groups, if not the entire public.
    If anything is suspect in the executive summary one can look at the relevant section in the full report.
    Now we face the prospect of a severely doctored report.

    Follow the money trail, and know that those who block and prevent the information from being released, must have a lot to hide. The guilty are always afraid, and they will act so in how they react to the public knowing the truth. Nandasena has made sure he has in place officials, crooks, liars, and even murderers, who will help his efforts to keep the country in ignorance. Actions will speak louder than words.
    Simply watch how this ends.

    The biggest failure in the commissions report is ignoring the actions of Mahinda Rajapakse’s Previous two term Government actions with regards to financing Saharan. Gota has accepted that Saharan was funded by the Govt when he was the Secretary of Defense. Failure to investigate this period and only investigating the Yahapalana Govt period is a clear indication of the commissions bias act.

Assassination of Rajiv Gandhi: An Inside Job? written by Faraz Ahmad
    The author termed the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi was a contract job which had nothing to do with the ideology or the larger cause of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (accused of the crime). The book reveals that Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination by the LTTE on 21 May 1991 was a myth which has been perpetuated for twenty-eight years. The myth was perpetuated because Congress Party feared that Rajiv Gandhi might not triumph in the 1991 general elections which were underway.
