What Is Sri Lanka?

By Tisaranee Gunasekara

“The history or the future of Sri Lanka does not belong to any group”. Ranasinghe Premadasa (Speech on 12.11.1990)

Character can be fate, for both individuals and collectives. The answer to where Sri Lanka is headed depends, at least in part, on what Sri Lanka is.

In 1956, the dominant Sinhala opinion deemed that Sri Lanka was a Sinhala country; after two decades of resistance, the dominant Tamil opinion abandoned the struggle for equality, accepted that Sri Lanka was a Sinhala country and demanded a separate Tamil state on that basis.

None clung to the myth of Sri Lanka not being a country for Tamils with greater assiduity than Vellupillai Pirapaharan. In 1956, SWRD Bandaranaike used the Tamil-bogey to come to power. Today the Rajapaksas are using the Muslim-bogey to perpetuate their power. Just as their politico-ideological forefathers told the Tamils to get back to Tamilnadu/India, the Sinhala-Buddhist supremacists of today are acting as if every Lankan Muslim is a dual citizen of Saudi Arabia, by birth.

Nothing reveals the reach of this toxic nonsense than a memory shared by Jezima Ismail: “Some years ago at a lecture session at the BMICH a professor waxed eloquent on the feelings he had for Sri Lanka and that this was the only place for him. In the course of this talk he turned round to me and said that if anything untoward happened I could of course seek refuge in Saudi or the Middle East”i.

Buddhist Monk Galabodaaththe Gnanasara - BBS

Ms. Ismail is as Sri Lankan as can be, a pedagogue who has served her country and her community for, decades. It was to a woman of such calibre and achievement this remark was made, not to some Saudo-phile extremist wallowing in Wahabism or Salafism. And the person who made this remark was not a raving BBS monk or a common or garden mobster, but a professor, if not a man of learning at least one of education.

Clearly the ‘hosts and guests’ concept of Sri Lanka is not the sole property of the lunatic fringe.
From the rejection of the pluralist nature of Sri Lanka flows the refusal to accept that minorities are co-owners of the country. This cements the belief that minorities do not consider Sri Lanka as their motherland and that they are creatures of divided loyalties, not to be trusted.

This mindset can be explained using Aristotelian syllogism:
1) Only Sinhala-Buddhists can love Sri Lanka.
Tamils/Muslims/Christians are not Sinhala-Buddhists.
Therefore Tamils/Muslims/Christians do not love Sri Lanka.
2) Aliens want to destroy Sri Lanka.
Tamils/Muslims/Christians are aliens.
Therefore Muslims/Tamils/Christians want to destroy Sri Lanka

From the belief that minorities are untrustworthy aliens, forever conspiring to take ‘our’ country away from ‘us’, stems the concept of a beleaguered Sri Lanka, in constant danger of being conquered by external enemies or subverted by internal foes. From that phobia to the hallucination that Sinhala Buddhists are the most endangered species on earth and that great religious and temporal powers are consumed with a desire to undermine us is but a short step.

That is where the global conspiracy theory comes in. Depending of the politico-ideological views of the believer this can either be an imperialist conspiracy or a Christian one, an Indian/Tamil conspiracy or a Muslim one. The villain of the piece may change from time to time, but the plot never does. Someone is always conspiring to deprive the Sinhalese-Buddhists of their one and only country. The ‘reason’ for this varies, again according to the belief system of the believer – it can be Trincomalee, our strategic location, the need to destabilise India or the desire to destroy Buddhism. And those who hold these views regard them as self-evident and axiomatic truths, immune to facts, beyond dispute or debate.
There is an omnipotent postscript to this narrative of ‘ever generous’ Sinhala Buddhists welcoming alien races/religions to their motherland and giving them space to live and opportunities to thrive. When the Sinhalese feel ‘betrayed’ by the ‘minority guests’, when Sinhala ‘patience’ runs out due to ‘minority encroachments’, the Sinhalese go berserk. And Black Julys happen. The inevitable flipside of ‘we are generous and trusting’ is ‘we have been betrayed’.

Much of the bad which happened to this country, post-Independence, are sourced in these myths, hallucinations and phobias and the maniacal manner in which a segment of Sinhala society act under their collective noxious influence.
The professor who told Ms. Ismail that she has a home in Saudi Arabia/Middle East would never publicly use same raw language as the BBS/JHU. His type would never say ‘hambaya’ in public. They will not scream threats. They will repeat the same errant and dangerous nonsense as the BBS/JHU in polite language and well-modulated voices. Their contribution to the coming conflagration will be far more potent because many a Sinhalese alienated by the BBS’ ravings will succumb to the ‘opinions’ of these pseudo-moderates. And when the ‘outraged’ majority attacks the minority, the Professor and others of his ilk would not join the mob. They would shake their heads sorrowfully and say that the rage – and its lamentable manifestation – had just causes.

When the resulting conflagration turns the country into a living hell, they will migrate to some Western haven; from that safety and comfort they will inundate the internet with their patriotic twaddle.

It is in the enabling environment created by respectable middle classers like the Professor that the Tigers and the Talebans, the Shiva Senas and the Bodu Bala Senas of this world thrive.

Encouraging Madmen

The Rajapaksas may or may not believe in the racist ravings of the BBS; but they are certainly determined to use the resultant hysteria for their benefit, to strengthen their Sinhala base, to justify the unjustifiable (from defence costs and waste to high prices) and to worm their way into American/Western good books. As the Sunday Times confirms, the recent initiatives by Ambassador Jaliya Wickremasuriya indicate a possible new direction for the Lankan foreign policy. Public Relation firms are reportedly being used to present a friendly image of Rajapaksa Sri Lanka to American policy makers/public.

The Rajapaksas would think that being seen as a target of Islamic terrorism will help them to save the Hambantota Commonwealth, win over the West and rule forever.

The possibility that Sri Lanka may end up being the Asian Serbia would not occur to the limited imaginations of the Ruling Siblings.

Already the Muslims live in fear, not knowing when and how the next attack will come. The inability of democratic Muslim leaders to construct a moderate, non-racist response to this challenge will create a deadly vacuum. If sane Sinhala/Buddhists fail to rally round Lankan Muslims, if they allow the BBS to determine the agenda and wreak havoc in their name, a Muslim counter-extremism, deadlier than the Tiger, may emerge.

And the Rajapaksas will have the war of their dreams. That such a conflict will condemn most Lankans to an unprecedented and unending nightmare would not matter to the Siblings. All the Rajapaksas care about is Familial Rule and Dynastic Succession. They will not hesitate to sacrifice anyone and anything to buy themselves a few more years of unbridled power.

      Many, many thanks for yet another great article, Thisaranee. We salute you.
      All patriotic Lankans are truly indebted to you for deconstructing so well the racist agenda will to power of the Rajapakse military dictatorship – and for speaking out so clearly!
      I think the Rajapassa brothers sense that their days are numbered and regime change on the way. They also know that the whole world and the Sinhalaya modayas are now wise to their crimes and that their SPIN is going nowhere.. hence the PR firms to justify the Buddhist Taliban that they are nurturing and protecting in Lanka..

    Ms T is very good at making mountains out of molehills.

    BBS hasn’t killed anyone or going to kill anyone,in contrast to Ms T’s favourite LTTE.

    Isn’t it the Diaspora machinations in concert with their IC partners aided and abetted by their proxies the TNA who create this patriotism amomg the Sinhala population?.

      BBS does not need to kill anyone however it is creating an environment of hatred in which someone else is ready and willing to pull the trigger.

      Isn’t it the Sinhala/Buddhist chauvinism that created Federal Party, TULF, LTTE and sundries?

      By the way did IC create JVP and sustain through two violent conflict? Is it true that S J V Chelvanayakam was instrumental in creating JVP and sustaining it with IC’s support? I am sorry it was Mahatma Gandhi who was the chief ideologue of the JVP.

      Dear Sumanasekara,

      Definitely. But BBS is murdering acceptable social norms and communal amity. It is creating tinder in plenty that can make a horrendous fire. It is also becoming an entity the law fears to touch. It is in fact laying down the law. Worse, it has within a few months taken us back five years. Fear and uncertainty have already taken hold.

      Are the Sinhalese the only patriots in this country? Why are you portraying all the Sinhalese as a people who will be provoked by the machinations of those you name? Why should they react against Muslims, even if it is so? It would have sounded logical, if they reacted against the Tamils, in whose name the alleged machinations are taking place? They are not, because they know the Tamils are like a beaten up snake ( Adithu poetta Paambu in Tamil) now. They are also unfortunately trying to draw at least sections of the Tamils into their anti- Muslims machinations, using land issues as the bait.

      What is being purportedly done in the name of the Sinhala people, in particular the Sinhala- Buddhists, is a grave crime committed against a very large mass of decent humans. The BBS and its affiliates are not the Sinhala- Buddhists, as much as the LTTE was not the Tamils.

      The TNA and the Diaspora groups are wrong in the manner they have portrayed many post-war issues. But the government too was wrong in how it has handled long standing political issues of concern to the Tamil polity, in the light of the post-war scenario. The combined foolishness of both is of concern to those like me.

      Please do not make matters worse with flippant comments. Argument for the sake of argument is dangerous at times like this. I know many are uttering provocative words and flashing the red flag to elicit reactions such as your’s.This applies to both sides of the communal divide and is quite unrepresentative of the people on whose behalf they claim to speak.

      I hope you will understand the spirit in which I have penned this comment.

        You sound apologetic to K.A Sumanasekera about the conduct of minorities whereas he gets off scot-free with his mild eccentric racist attacks on minorities and intelligentsia(?).

        Cosying up to people like Sumanasekera would only encourage them to believe in what they say as facts.

        Its time you tell these kind of people where to get off.

          I have crossed swords with Mr. Sumanasekera over a long time. But we have been cordial to each other. The words I have penned are made to emphasise that spirit. Haven’t I said what I intended to. I do not think it is my role to tell anyone where to get off, although I have the right to disagree with them.

          There is no need of any apology from Narendran.

          He has put his money where the mouth is, unlike his compatriots.

          He has given up feature comforts to live with his people and help them as much as he can.

          I admire him for that reason alone.

          And I have expressed that a few times.

            On the other hand you impersonate as someone who really care about your Tamil brethren. If you really care you should marry one of those young widows with two kids (legally of course) and take a vow of “Till Death Do Us Part”.

            Would you and other do gooder Sinhalese prepared to give those widows a helping heart?

            Malinda,

            13th amendment plus, was President Mahinda Rajapalse’s postulation! He has now changed his posture . Why? What sort of dishonesty was this? ******The Tamil political formations here, the Tamil Diaspora, India and the Wesst would not have reacted as they have, if MR had not led them to believe that he would implement a 13th amendment plus********. If he had offered and implemented the 13th amendment plus on the lines of the APRC report, there would not have been a need for the LLRC. Do not blame others. The president has to shoulder the biggest share of the blame. He tried to play a crafty game in which he has been caught red handed.

      There should be a limit to stupidity! Comments by Sumanasekera boarders stupidity. Has Sumane Aiya not seen how the BBS thugs behaved, is he so stupid to go and offer Dane to these stupid thugs? Is the actions of BBS what Sumanasekera going to teach his children as the teaching of Buddha? No doubt that Sri Lanka is going to dogs because of the stupidity of numerous educated Sumanasekeras. Sri Lanka has always been a multi ethnic, multi religious country and it will always remain so and also will remain as one country. If people like Sumane Aiya do not understand this concept then there is no doubt that Sri Lanka will be divided not into two countries but into three without any one taking any arms.

      Yes, the BBS has not killed anyone so far and may be they themselves will not kill, but are they not certainly inciting others to become violent. And does not violence lead to killings. Did not the BBS provoke innocent Buddhists against the business of No Limit and Fashion Bug by their speeches in Kandy and violence took place. The next step would have been killing.

    Sri Lanka is at it’s cross roads. It’s got to choose it’s course of direction very carefully. As fear dilutes loyalty. For how long can the Sri Lanka’s woes can be swept under a carpet and be ruled with fear?

    In the pages of history there lives no city more glamorous than Babylon. Its very name conjures visions of wealth and splendour. Its treasures of gold and jewels were fabulous. One naturally pictures such a wealthy city as located in a suitable setting of tropical luxury, surrounded by rich natural resources of forests and mines. Such was not the case. It was located beside the Euphrates River, in a flat, arid valley. It had no forests, no mines not even stone for building. It was
    not even located upon a natural trade route. The rainfall was insufficient to raise crops. Babylon is an outstanding example
    of people’s ability to achieve great objectives, using whatever means are at their disposal. All of the resources supporting this large city were human-developed. All of its riches were human-made.

    Sri Lanka, a blessed land crying out for leadership.

      “Sri Lanka is at it’s cross roads.”

      Sri Lanka was at the cross roads in 1948. The Sinhala/Buddhist drivers jumped the red light on their way to Damascus knocked killed and injured many and destroyed properties.

      Sri Lanka has gone past cross roads and refuses to stop, think and reverse its own Juggernaut.

      BBS, JHU…………others are debris hurting fellow travelers and in most cases bystanders.

      Stop the Juggernaut and you will stop the debris flying out of momentum.

    Latest news is BBS going to visit US in order to spread the virus in that great democracy. They seem to have the financial and political backing to do all this unpeturbed by the havoc created to innocent people and their lives.

    No doubt in US they will meet several like minded islamophobic partners in their quest to destroy the muslims. Hope the RSO at the US embassy makes note of this and have them investigated by the FBI.

    Buddhist Monk Galabodaaththe Gnanasara – BBS is no different to a criminal – lanken authorities should pay close attention to study this person and do the due within the prevailing laws. His speeches not second to those of Wimal can get manipulate the village level blind masses and even can move them easily. Consequence will be a great threat. Coming colour is not good for the nation in the future…. if rulers would not react promptly.

    Alone his speeches are uncivilised not a match with an example profile of a buddhist monk. This the authorities should have realized long back now.

    All peace loving real buddhists will have to support anyone that would protect the image of lanken buddhist culture (that have not harmed anyone but only been peaceful for the centuries)

    ”deadlier than the Tiger, may emerge.” very interesting! How are we Sinhalese going to call them? Rebels? Terrorists? fanatics?
    VIPs era of 30 years, according to majority of the Sinhalese , the 30 years of terrorism? they would like to focus and try to justify the massacre and the ongoing genocide. They would not prepare to accept the LTTE was the product of their crime before the 30 years. Is it going to be another plot to completely wipe out the Tamils history and to start eradicate the Muslims?, buying time to complete the mission?
    I do not believe there are still any Human rights activists, neutral journalists or NGOS. So This could well be the right time to complete the mission while the wind is blowing in their favour. If the major powers and the UN are still closing their eyes with regard to the ongoing genocide what further favour would the Sinhaless and their government need to complete the mission

      As it is common with any actions against crimes of high grade, that has been their manner of reaction. Either the rulers seem to pay deliberately ignorance or they are not capable of seeing the depth of the grave issues.

      Shiva,

      I don’t know if you have understood the whole concept of Rajapakse Kingdom which is quite amazine to understand other than Tisaranee like minded people who could see the mystery behind it.

      All I could say is Rakapakses have mastered the art of deception.

      I have worked in that area for a long time and have studied the mindset of those people who live that part of country who are born with that talent of Deception.

      From winning the election upto wearing all the garlands of LTTE war win upon himself only without even considering sharing some with Gen.Sarath Fonseka who helped immensly to win it, now MR using same deception to win 75% Sinhala Buddhist Majority by Bribing and hiding behind Buddhist Preletes and BBS.

      All the western countries including USA use manpower Tallents, brains and wisdom of every citizen and the expatriate community to increase their GDP. But not in Sri Lanka. They kill the minority talents.

      Time has come to UNMASK RAJAPAKSE DECEPTION AND DELUSION AND FACE THE WORLD IN A REALISTIC MINDSET.

      Rajapakses thought that they could get away using their born family comedy tricks on International community, but now stuck badly.

      We Sri Lankan patriots watch how the comedy masters manupulate country’s Majority villege, Buddhist Sinhala majority showing fake and wasteful developments projects while giving false promises to International community.

      I truly agree with Tisaranee that Rajapakses Ticking Bomb have already started.

      If Rajapakses think that they could stay put and fight with International community, well and fine.

      Playing Sinhala Buddhist card will not help anymore similar to VP’s destiny.

      We along with Tisaranee only telling the truth of Ground reality to safeguard our country from absolute ruling comedy central deception muts.

    The comment made to Ms Jezima Ismail, referred to in the article, is very pertinent. There has always been a simmering antipathy aagainst the minorities in Sri Lanka (or even Ceylon earlier) by many Sinhalese-especially among the educated professionals. Protests about the present situation are more from fear of the consequences of anarchy, than from real empathy.

    Tisaranee’s mindset can be explained using Aristotelian syllogism:

    1) Only Sinhala-Buddhists can be racists.
    Tamils/Muslims/Christians are not Sinhala-Buddhists.
    Therefore Tamils/Muslims/Christians cannot be racists.

    2) Majorities persecute minorities.
    Sinhala-Buddhists are a majority.
    Therefore Sinhala-Buddhists persecute minorities.

      @Rambler

      Have you been in a Rip-Van-Winkle slumber all these years? Most of
      the problems this country has faced since independence is because the majority has tried to lord it over the minorities and impose their religion, language and culture on the minorities!!!

      And for your information, the minorities don’t go about telling anyone who will listen that SL is a Hindu, Muslim or Christian country!!!

      The only way SL will become a Sinhala Buddhist country is if the majority SBs chase away all the non Buddhists from the country, or if all the minorities convert to Buddhism!!!

      Learn to coexist with the minorities. That is the only way this country can go forward and prosper.

      ps. And for God’s sakes tell the SBs to stop addressing the minorities as “anya aagamikayan” (non Buddhists) and “anya jaathikayan” (non Sinhalese).

    Poor Tisaranee does not know that Muslims do not recognize borders; for them, there is one ummah , and it is the obligation of those in the ummah to support jihad. Tisaranee, despite her shadowy existence as an internet-warrior cum expert on all habits of the Rajapakse’s – from Rajapakse dietary habits to Rajapakse toothbrush styles – does not realize that independent women like her have no place in Islam. This silly wench Tisaranee who depends on Rajapakse’s morning droppings for her next paycheck, does not realize that the turbulence Sri Lanka is going through is perfectly natural for any emerging democracy. Might I suggest Tisaranee spend a year in Saudi. After she is flogged for revealing an ankile in public, we’ll see how her tune changes.

        @ Apochi,

        I am not a Rajapakse supporter, but I have not made a living out of Rajapakse bashing, unlike Tisaranee here. Sri Lanka has good potential; it has a 2500 year old history of liberalism. The world’s first female prime minister was Sri Lankan, so Sri Lanka – at least the majority community – does not have an issue with gender equality. On the other hand, if Islamic fundamentalism rears its head, Sri Lanka will not go anywhere for sure.

        By the way, I did not claim that Tisaranee eats Rajapakse droppings; I said her paycheck depends on the latter. A little more education might help you to interpret properly.

            You should definitely consider mental help, for believing in a Holy Book that says the Earth is flat.

    Quite a few home truths in this piece. Needs to get as wide a publicity as possible. Particularly, the myth of only home for us should be exposed for what it is, a delusion used to perpetrate hor4ors on the minorities.

    Native,

    It is a brilliant propsition from you to your Diaspora Buddies.

    And the best humanitarian gesture they can ever make to these destitute women, and men in Wanni, who have been and still are the victims of Diaspora and their proxy Politikkas in Colombo.

      I am sorry to disappoint you that my people have no diaspora however we have our cousins living all over the world including Australia.

      I wrote:

      “Would you and other do gooder Sinhalese prepared to give those widows a helping heart?”

      You have completely evaded my question just like a Sri Lankan politician.

      I am looking forward to reading your response.

        Native,

        We know you are having rollicking fun in Australia and else where as you mentioned.

        Your cousin inhabitants in the North are still struggling to get a life after helping the liberation which was totally financed by the rollicking cousins.

        After the ” liberation ‘ ended , the poor inhabitants whom you have reffered to, expected some of that liberation money for them to get a house, new school, new hospital and a new place to work after watching all these being destoyed by the liberationists.

        Whilst the Govt, with the help of a few caring Nations including India minus TN, are doing their utmost, those finaciers are still promising them milk and honey if the Govt give their proxies total control of life and land.

        Until such time the inhabitant cousins have to do with what ever they get from the Govt.

        But some of your cousins that you mentioned are quite happy to sneak in and indulge in a bit of rollicking fun with the poor and the destitute at budget rates.

    1) Only Sinhala-Buddhists can be racists.
    Tamils/Muslims/Christians are not Sinhala-Buddhists.

    The Sinhala/Buddhists share their gene and culture with the Tamil/ Saivaites, therefore Sinhala/Buddhist are racist.

    2) Majorities persecute minorities.
    Sinhala-Buddhists are a majority.
    Therefore Sinhala-Buddhists persecute minorities.

    In the Indian ocean Sinhala/Buddhist are minorities they persecute other minorities in the island and their own people because they share their stupid DNA with their Tamil/Saivaite brethren.

    These very very stupid people have been persecuting my people for about 2500 years.

    Therefore majority and minority does not matter as long they wield a longer stick to beat up the other side.

    Did the minority cause the Matala mystery?

    Essentialy the message is Sinhala Buddhists are Racists. The Tamils muslims are the victims of this favoured status to the Sinhalese. The Sinhalese how ever are financially ethnically cleansed from colombo, Kandy the main economic centres. Mosques are raring their head every 2 miles in colombo ,Tamil eelam claimed on historical Sinhala land is the propaganda. Now tell me is the Sinhalese the victims or are the perpetrators of discrimination. This false propaganda must stop. It does not help in establishing a stable society.

    What Is Sri Lanka?

    Wonder of the Planet. Lead by unquestionably the most just untainted compassionate Buddhist leader know to the world backed by his Sons and sibling’s who are with the purist and unblemished character’s and ably assisted by his relatives and close friends and the best educated honest politicians likes of Dr Mervin, Ranil, and Col Pretty Boy Karuna and defended by the greatest and most feared and bravest defence force known to the man kind now has provided a utopia or a kind of paradise to its well deserved inhabitant’s the Western countries only can dream about. I think that should cover it nicely.
