Wijeyadasa’s Madman Responds

By Hilmy Ahamed

Hilmy Ahamed

I am compelled to respond as a signatory to the civil society statement defending Attorney at Law Lakshan Dias against the threats and intimidation of Justice and Buddha Sasana Minister, Hon. Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe. He has branded all of us signatories to that statement as mad women and men who should be in Angoda.

Granville Perera using alternate media has responded to Hon. Rajapakshe’s claim about madness and I quote, No mad man admits that he is mad. When you ask a patient at the mental hospital in Angoda, if he is mad, he will without hesitating point towards the outside world and say all the mad men are out there. That is exactly what Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe, the Minister of Justice and Buddha Sasana (believed to be allegedly hiding the fugitive extremist Buddhist monk Gnanasara Thero) said in the Hiru TV show on 26 June 2017″. He also claimed, “everyone who signed a petition in support of Lakshan Dias, the Human Rights defender and Attorney at Law are “mad men” who should be in Angoda”. Is this a clear indication that he has lost his head? Lakshan Dias had to flee the country as he is being hunted by suspected Wijedasa Rajapaksa’s goons”.

Has Hon. Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe lost it or is he hoodwinking the Sinhala Buddhist voter to believe that Buddhism that survived the colonial rule and the kalu Suddas thereafter is under threat from a small minority of Muslims and Evangelical Christians? Venerable Galagoda Atte Gnanasara Thero and the Bodu Bala Sena have managed to keep their coffers filling from the sweat of our Sinhala workers in Korea and Japan using the same rhetoric. Is Hon. Rajapakshe doing this stunt to fill his ballot box?

Many Muslims and Christians voted for Hon. Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe, because he was one among the few honourable candidates on offer. Did we all misjudge the charming Hon. Rajapaksa?

Hon. Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe, Minister of Justice, and Buddhist Affairs is also a President’s Counsel, a former President of the Bar Association of Sri Lanka with a Doctorate in Law and in Buddhist Philosophy (University of Colombo and Kelaniya).

Lakshan Dias is a fearless young lawyer who boldly defended his fellow Christians in and out of the judicial system. I have had the pleasure of working with Lakshan in difficult circumstances on racist assaults on minorities and can without hesitation declare that Lakshan did not lie during the Derena TV show where he claimed that there were 197 incidents of violence against the Christians under Yahapalanaya. Today’s count stands with 20 more at 217. The National Christian Evangelical Association of Sri Lanka (NCEASL) has meticulously documented these incidents of violence against the Christian community. Police complaints have been made against some of these incidents, while others are in the judicial process, most have photographic or video evidence. These have been published up to January 2017 and are in the public domain. Others are available in the web portal of NCEASL and are easily accessible by the Public. For Hon. Wijeyadasa Rajapaksa, most of these are minor (sulu) incidents. I wish he would sit on the other side of the fence and experience the fear and frustration one has to endure when we see Ashin Wirathu style intimidation of minorities. The Christians say, it’s a test from God, but I say, a volcano is about to erupt. 

H E President Maithripala Sirisena generated the confusion, when he declared that there were no Catholic Churches that had been attacked by racists. A perfectly true statement, because the Catholic Church was almost an extension of the Rajapaksa regime with Cardinal Malcom Ranjith being part of the Rajapaksa household. That concession and security continued even under Yahapalanaya. Regretfully, H E President Sirisena probably doesn’t realize the cold war between the Protestant and the Catholic Church. When the President asked the Cardinal whether there had been any attacks against his Church, he truthfully said NO, there has not been a single attack. The cardinal will face his Lord one day, and will need to explain why he misled the President, as he knew very well the daily torment that his fellow Christians undergo. In Sri Lankan parlance, the Cardinal led the President up the Murunga tree.

Hon. Rajapakshe claims that he has initiated action (or did he intimidate) to disbar Lakshan Dias as a lawyer. The CRIME – Lakshan worked as an activist to defend his faith and claimed that there were close to 200 incidents of violence, hate, intimidation, threats, and destruction of Christian churches and prayer centers in during a the TV talk show titled “Aluth Parlimenthuwa (new parliament)” on  14 June 2017, Ironically, three monks and a layman have initiated action in the Supreme Court of Sri Lanka against Lakshan probably at the behest of Hon. Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe. We would soon know whether we need hybrid courts to hear cases against the grievances of the Northern Tamil minority as per the Geneva agreement, or that we would have a Judiciary that cannot be intimidated by the Minister of Justice.

Hon. Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe also claims that he associates himself with the Asgiriya Prelate’s stand against the minorities. As a cabinet minister, and also the Minister of Justice, is he questioning the minorities’ right to equal recognition as guaranteed by the Constitution? A person who cannot provide equal justice to all citizens should not hold the position of Justice Minister. He should immediately resign from his ministerial portfolio or should be removed by H E Maithripala Sirisena. The Sri Lankan Constitution clearly defines that “every person is entitled to freedom of thought, conscience and religion, including the freedom to have or to adopt a religion or belief of his choice”. The assaults and intimidation of minorities’ right to religious freedom and practice is a clear violation of the Constitution.

Hon. Wijedasa Rajapaksa has joined the phobic extremists to brand civil society as conspiring with Western nations and the international community to undermine Sri Lanka- A clear reminder of the Weerawansa days of the Rajapaksa era when anything and everything is linked to an international conspiracy.

Hon. Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe and his Government go down on their knees for GSP+ concessions, loans to pay for their luxury duty free vehicles, import substandard consumables for the masses and to repay massive debts that have accumulated by the misrule of our politicians during the last 70 years. Well, echoing our Honorable Minister’s parlance, they should all be at Angoda and not at Diyawanna.

Europe and the rest of the developed world dole out their taxpayers’ money to fill the begging bowl of Sri Lanka and other poor nations. They are answerable to their citizens (unlike our politicians) to ensure that they are not funding and supporting despotic rulers and to ensure adherence to democratic values, human, women’s and child rights, transparency, good governance, etc. They engage civil society organizations working in respective specialties to monitor the proper implementation of their grants to the Government. Most of these civil society organizations don’t work as an extension of the Government in power, hence there is constant conflict. The successive governments continue to have appointed ‘spokesmen’ to undermine the work of civil society. Regretfully, Hon. Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe has become one such person, attacking the NGOs and civil society as traitors to the nation. For all of these opportunistic politicians, civil society has been their darling while they are in the Opposition. Evidence of this could be seen in the way Mahinda Rajapaksa is bending backwards to appeal to civil society.

The worst of Hon. Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe’s diatribes comes when he accuses his Muslim Parliamentarians too as mad men, which convinces me that Granville Perera has spoken the truth. Of course our Angoda mental hospital won’t be good enough for any of our honourable men from Diyawannawa, but the Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore would be an acceptable option..

In this days of minority bashing, I am reminded of a statement from Hon. Eran Wickramaratne, Deputy Minister who said “In any country, it is the responsibility of the majority community to protect and look after the minorities”. Does Hon. Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe agree with his parliamentary colleague?

    “Catholic Church was almost an extension of the Rajapaksa regime with Cardinal Malcom Ranjith being part of the Rajapaksa household.”

    all Christians around the country should ask Malcom Ranjith to resign for failing to act in the interest of the Christians who were being attacked and harassed…

    His unchristian ways is tarnishing the name of Christianity and he should be reported to the pope.

      Malcom Ranjith is not fit to be a priest. He is a political animal who was sucking up to Shiranthi Rajapaksa for perks and privileges. Now Sirisena thinks that he is the head of the catholic church in Sri Lanka which he is not. The Sinhala Buddhist leaders have absolutely no knowledge of the christian faith, They think everyone is a roman catholic. Cardinal Ranjith has brought total dishonor to the entire christian commented. He needs to be excommunicated or the Christian faith would be rediculed.

        The president should not be ignorant about the people/communities living in his own country. Cardinal Malcom Ranjith is the leader of the Roman Catholic Church which is only one of the many Christian sects in Sri Lanka. There are also Anglicans, Presbyterians, Methodists, Lutheran, Pentecost, Baptist, Salvation Army, CSI, Jehovah Witness, Seventh-day Adventists and many other Protestant churches in Sri Lanka. Cardinal Malcom Ranjith can tell the President only about the Catholic Church and not about any others.

        Pseudo Fr. Annesley ,
        The cardinal requested on behalf of Ambassador Nonis a donor and the billionaire thug perpetrator was stopped from the audience with the pope. Do you give your church tithes? In truth You don’t.
        Like on Passion day all the apostles said kill him except for one who too was crucified.
        The cardinal knows the bible and I knew the missionary school students when the takeover took place. It’s the scenes we see in restaurants- big fist and small fists. Who is the greatest? All the imbecilic scream you sir- like during the visit of Prince Charles and Cameron when the badagini windbags hid in their women’s knickers.

      President Sirisena and Justice Minister Wijedasa have turned into jokers. When the human rights lawyer Lakshan Dias exposed the fact that from the day the present government came to power till today more than hundred Christian churches and establishments have been attacked by the Buddhists, they want to disbar him so that he cannot practice law in Sri Lanka and also change the laws to regulate the human rights NGOs.

      The two Jokers have asked the third Joker Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith who has confirmed that no such attacks took place.

      First of all, Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith represents only the Catholic Church and not the entire Christian community in Sri Lanka. Secondly, we all know that Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith is a shameless government stooge who obtained favors from the government and therefore it is obvious that the Cardinal will be obliged to preach a political sermon for favors granted. He is a disgrace to the Catholics of Sri Lanka and the majority of Catholics are not happy with the way their Cardinal has been supporting the racist ideology of the Buddhist government. He is as corrupt as the government and not fit to be a Catholic priest.

      Let me remind the readers,

      Ruwani Cooray, niece of Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith has not passed the Foreign Service examination nor been recruited to the foreign service through any accepted procedure. However she was appointed by the previous government as the second secretary to the Sri Lanka Embassy in France.

      President Sirisena and Justice Minister Wijedasa should know that Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith is not the authority for all Christians in Sri Lanka even though he is trying to act like one. This government came to power due to the minorities (Tamils, Muslims and Christians). However, in the future, they will never get any minority votes.

      Dear Hilmy, there is no point in attacking WR as he is behaving like a politician and not as a honest human being. He was an honourable man before he entered politics and has sunk to low levels especially after MR got his gunmen to fire at his house as a warning not to get out of line. First principle in life is that if you are a honourable person and want to remain so till your death, do not enter politics. Do you sincerely believe that MS & RW do not know what is happening. They are all playing politics.
      There are several complains made about attacking or destroying places of worship. No government will ever take action as it is counterproductive. There are several decent fair minded persons in every community. Get them to intervene and form committees to investigate these. Lobby both government and opposition not to make any political capital out of the findings. Expressing views in media will not help.
      The following complains of attack on places of worship have been made :
      1. Complains by Muslims about attack on Mosques by Buddhists
      2. Complains by Christians about attack on Churches by Buddhists
      3. Complains by Buddhists about destruction of archaeological sites by Muslims.
      4. Complains by Hindus about attack on Kovils in eastern province by Muslims.
      All the perpetrators should be brought to justice and status quo restored.
      How many people will agree to this bipartisan approach, where most want to cover up atrocities committed by their community on others.

    The minorities should meet the President and ask for the immediate removal of Wijedasa Rajapaksa from the post of Justice Minister as he is not fit to dispel Justice. He is most suited to retain the Buddha Sasana Ministry as he is one among the biggest racists in parliament.

      The entire country knows that the Minister Dealdasa Rajapakshe is not only corrupt (as exposed by Fonseka) but also a low life who calls others lunatics and animals. Both President and PM knows very well that he acts/works for the interests of the Medamulana Rajapakshes. The minorities have not only lost faith in wijedasa Rajapkasa but also the entire government. The present government has proved beyond doubt to the entire country (both majority & minorities) that they are a total failure.

      Why the minorities? Do you really believe that he is serving the interest of the Majority whether it be Sinhala or Buddhists?

      He is not fit to be the justice minister just based of the last two years record on his portfolio. At best he is grossly incompetent at worst corrupted to the core.

      He is not fit to be the minister in charge of Buddha Sasana as cannot grasp even the basic principles of Buddhism.

      He is dragging the Justice system and Buddhism through the mud.

    I am willing to place any bet that Wijedasa will not be elected to the next parliment. As Hilmy says, many Muslims, Tamils and Christians voted him because he was one of the few educated candidates. Now, he has proved that he has none of those qualities. Lets deal with him at the next elections

      We know he,(wijedasa) is trying to win sinhala votes. I think Sinhala people will not like racists. I had a honour to WR. Now I feel he is bad. He showed to the country he is fighting against corruption. But when Fonseka displayed some photos of WR family, I was shocked. More corrupt fellow.

    In Sri Lanka, unworthy men reach high places. Here is this Minister for Injustice and Un-Buddhist Affairs. And there is the Prince of the Catholic Church. How they can hold such positions is a wonder. The latter belongs to an international outfit. What is the response of the Pope? There used to be a Papal Nuncio in SL. What is he doing? Can non-Catholics ask this question? This brings the whole Catholic Church into disrepute.

    The Ranil-My3 government is becoming a lame duck. This Angoda Minister is one reason for it. They do not have the courage to sack him.

    Is this guy not a reflection on the administration of law and of lawyers in the country. We have had bogus Chief Justices pandering to the whims of dictatorial regimes. The Police cannot find a suspect-monk until he surrenders. The President declares that there is nothing wrong happening to the Christians and Muslims. Everything is becoming a joke.
    Mr Ahmad Thank you for writing this courageous piece. It is easy for us to thank you. But, you may have to face consequences. I hope that there will be many to stand by you.

    Hilmy Ahmed: Why do you think Wijedasa Rajapakse was silent when the Muslim cheif Minister of the Eastern province allowed bulldozing Ancient buddhist temples. budda Sasana minister did not know or the, At that time, the governor of the province who would do anything for money (his religion is money) allowed the muslims to bulldoze the temples. The budda Sasana minister was silent because he did not want to confront the governor who has connections in the HorApalana govt.

I know the Vellala partners of Hilmy and the crowd , who signed the Lankadeepa add are panicking now………Vellala Leader Sampathar has agreed to accept ” Eekeeya ” and drop the Federal from Batalanda Constitution , although his apprentice Abram told the Colombo Media that it didn’t matter because he is confident that Batalanda Ranil has written it in such a way that it is all Federal ………And joining North and East to make the North East Federal is more than possible……….. Will the Vellalas get their wish , now that Asgiriya has woken up ………. ….After siding with the Born Again NGO Agent , who made ridiculous allegations about the Sinhala Buddhists, Hilmy is now going for Cardinal Malcolm’s jugular ………. Cardinal Malcolm is a decent individual …… He is not a NGO Agent…….. Unlike the Wahabis .Most of his followers are Sinhala , rural poor people ,who have Buddhists in their extended families……To denigrate Cardinal Malcolm as a acolyte of Rajapaksa is despicable……..

    When they attacked the Tamils( Hindu Protestant/Catholic Christians) the island’s Muslim population ( who are ethnically Tamil and not Moor/Arab) and the Sinhalese Protestant/Catholic Christians kept quiet and in many instances openly sided with the Sinhalese led government establishment and armed services. The Sinhalese Christians because they shared a common ethnicity with the Sinhalese Buddhist, despite the fact more than 90% of the present day so called Sinhalese Catholics are descended Tamils who migrated to the island a few centuries ago. This Cardinal Malcolm Ranjit lied to the international community and openly connived with the Sinhalese establishment and racists during the Eelam Tamil genocide. This man is not fit to be a priest and a man of god. At least many Sinhalese Protestant priests were raising their concern, as to what was happening to the Tamils. The Muslims in the island despite being Tamil by ethnicity joined the Sinhalese racists again in the name of their religion and an imagined Arab/Moor identity to discriminate and commit war crimes on the non Muslim Tamils. Now they are all howling and screeching and crying unfair, as the Sinhalese Buddhist have now turned against them, after finishing off the island’s indigenous Eelam Tamils , who posed the biggest threat to their Mahavamsa myth.

        Ignorant racist., who does not have the guts to use his real name but a fake Muslim name, what Siva states is correct and stop howling if you cannot bear the truth be told. The vast majority of the Sinhalese Catholics belong to the Karawa,Salagama and Durawa community who are all descended from recent South Indian immigrant imports, brought into the island by the Portuguese and Dutch colonials. The former to increase the island’s Catholics so imported lots of low caste Catholic Tamil converts from south India. The latter importing low caste indentured labour to work in the huge southern cinnamon estates. In 2008 and 2009 all these Sinhalese Catholics and Christians led by Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith and other equally racist Sinhalese Catholic Bishops and priests were praying for the welfare and safety of the racist Sinhalese Buddhist soldiers who raping looting and bombing innocent Tamil civilians and not a word of prayer for these unfortunates, who were their countrymen and many of whom were fellow Christians and Catholics, with whom they shared the same ancient Tamil origin. This alienated the Tamil Catholic population of Jaffna Mannar the Vanni and the east from the southern Sinhalese Catholic population. Cardinal Malcom Ranjith’s racist antics and many Sinhalese Catholic and even Protestant bishops refusing to sign a memorandum regarding the plight of the Tamil Catholics in the north and east has now totally alienated both populations. Go and fly a kite fake Rishard

          The fact is not what your other guy usually murmur. The fact is there is no indigenous Eelam Tamils and it is only a mythical kingdom, that is what I am trying to prove with your percentage. Not only that, most of the the ancient archaeological finds point to a Buddhist past with many ancient Buddhist temples in Jaffna. Rewriting historical gaps, including in Mahavamsa doesn’t make a lie become true. It is Portuguese and Dutch who brought in your ancestors from Malabar coastal areas to work on tobacco and indigo plantations – One of your tactics is to call others low-caste to make you look high-caste. But you guys don’t have a clear answer to why your population did not grow for more than 2500 years

            Rishard must be a student/follower of that mathematician turned Pseudo-historian Prof. Nalin De Silva who has invented a new history (his story) from thin air without any supporting evidence. He was the inventor of the new story about Dutch and Tobacco cultivation. One of the main sources of income the Portuguese and later the Dutch had at that time was Cinnamon and NOT Tobacco and cinnamon did not grow in Jaffna but in down south.

            Regarding the Jaffna kingdom, read the books written by Prof. Tikiri Abeysinghe, Senior Professor of History at the University of Colombo. The ancient Buddhist temples in Jaffna are the remnants left by the Tamil-Buddhists of the past. There is enough information about the Tamil Buddhists of the past and accepted by all historians.

              Even Nalin De Silva’s ancestors are from Tamil Nadu. The Sinhalese population from Colombo to Galle and along the south western coast and even further south increased because of these low caste South Indian imports. These newly Sinhalised Buddhists and Catholics who are claiming the ancient Sri Lankan civilization as their own heritage! These Sinhalised Tamils pretend as if they are more Sinhala than the Sinhalese. Not only people such as Dr. Nalin De Silva and Lt. Gen. Sarath Fonseka, but even people like Don David Hewavitarana AKA Anagarika Dharmapala belong to this group of Sinhalese who adopted Portuguese surnames to hide their original identity. One could often see the Silvas, Pereras, Fernandos, and Fonsekas as the’‘Freemasons’ of Sinhala Chauvinism, as their plight is such that the moment they deviate from this mission they will be branded non-Sinhalese. Even if one is the Chief Justice or Chief of Defense but with a Portuguese surname, there is no escape but to be loyal and serve Sinhala chauvinism in spite of its fascist foundation.The Sinhalised Tamils of the South like Prof. Nalin De Silva, whose ancestors were brought to Sri Lanka by the Portuguese/Dutch from South India (Coramandel coast) as menial labourers (for growing/peeling cinnamon, fishing/pearl diving, coconut planting/plucking and toddy tapping) who later adopted Portuguese surnames to hide their original identity, may be able to do so but he cannot expect the Tamils of North-East who have roots in Sri Lanka from the Anuradhapura period to be like him.

                People came from Kerala, Karnataka and Andhra.
                What makes us certain that all Tamils had ‘Tamil’ ancestors?

                  De Silva is a typical Salagma name and the ancestors of the Salagma were imported by the Dutch ,from the Coramandel coast of Tamil Nadu. Not from Kerala Andhra or Karnataka. Very few immigrants came to the island from what is modern day Karnataka or Andhra. If they did it was from the southern parts of these states and these areas spoke Tamil when they migrated, just like Kerala that was still speaking a form of Tamil until around 1865, when the British banned to local Tamil dialect written in the Tamil script, that was used by the masses of Kerala and made the highly Sanskritised dialect of the Nampoothiri Brahmins written in their Tulu base script as the standard language of present day Kerala. This is why even now you find that the simple spoken Malayalam of the masses is almost a form of Tamil, whilst the formal written language and news are read in this highly Sanskritised dialect. All these places were Tamil when all this migration took place. Pandi Kutti is correct

                You are absolutely correct.

                The southern Sri Lanka was inhabited by simple folk of South Indian origin whose main livelihood was fishing, pearling, toddy tapping, cinnamon peeling and being the cannon fodder of local petty kings and chiefs in their constant fights.
                They were originally low caste Tamil or Malayalam speaking Hindus as can be attested by the ‘Ge’ or house names of their descendants today (Sinhala Buddhists/Catholics) in South Sri Lanka.

                Arasa Marakkalage – House of the chief boat owner Arasa = Royal – Marakalam = Boat or Ship (Pure Tamil Name)
                Arukatti Patabendige – House of the warrior Arukatti = Sharp Knife or Sword (Pure Tamil Name)
                Ilandarige House of the youngster Ilandari = Young/Virile Man (Pure Tamil Name)
                Kankanamage House of the supervisor Kankani = Supervisor (Pure Tamil Name)
                Kinnarage House of the mat weaver Kinnarar = Weaver (Pure Sangam Tamil)
                Kovilge House of the temple keeper Kovil= Temple (Pure Tamil Name)
                Mandadiralage – House of the fishing captain Mandadi = Ship or a Captain fishing vessel (Pure Tamil Name)
                Marumakage House of the son-in-law Marumakan = Son in law (Pure Tamil Name)
                Panikkige House of the worker Panikkan – ancient Tamil name for Elephant minder or the guy who gives Betel leaves and condiments to the King
                Pennkutti Patabendige House of the female warrior Pennkutti = Young woman/ youngest daughter (Tamil and Malayali origin)
                Sembu Kuttige House belonging to the clan of Sembu, or of the metal pot maker Sempu= Pot made out of Brass or Copper (Pure Tamil name)
                Sellaperumage – House belongining to the clan of Sella Perumal (Pure Tamil name)
                Tantrige House of the shaman Thanthiri = Tamil and Malayala origin for the Temple priest

                Continued…

                0

                Continuation …

                Thevaraperumage – House of the singer of sacred songs in temples (sacred songs are known as Thevaram in Tamil) Even the Tamils of Tamil Nadu lost this tradition of naming after the sacred Tamil hymns of Thevram sung by sacred Saivite Saints but the Sinhalese (former Tamils) and Eelam Tamils still continue the tradition.
                Tuppakige House of the gun soldier (Tuppaki is an Indian Tamil (dialect) term for Gun in Sinhalese it is Tuvakuva)
                Vaduge House of the northerner, for Nayaka soldiers Vadugar = Mercenary Soldiers of Telegu origin (In jaffna the Vadugars are low caste) Varnakula Aditya Arasanilayitta, shortened to Varnage (an elaborate Tamil title for a clan or tribal chief).
                Apart from Ge names, they also use Iberian-derived surnames such as De Silva, Perera, Fernando, Mendis, Fonseka, Dias, Coorey, Soyza, and so on owing to their initial contact with Portuguese colonials. Dr. Paul E. Pieris has published extracts from the Portuguese tombo which gives the original names of the present day Sinhalese with Portuguese surnames before their conversion to Christianity and Buddhism. Dr. Pieris states: “The names deserve special attention, the majority appear to have been converted and adopted European Surnames names. For example, Fernando being the most popular surname, but the native name is also given among them being the following: Vira Cutti, Parama Cutti, Nila Cutti, Perumal, Nahepulle, Avepulle, etc. These point to recent South Indian origin.

                There are many more examples, the Malayalee Marappan became Marapana, the Tamil Naanaya Kaaran became Nanayakara and so on.

        Rishard Modaya, the Veddhas (Yakkas) and Eelam Tamils (Nagas) are the indigenous people of the island. Both their population remained low because they did not mix with anybody. Whereas the North Indian Vijay’s people who call themselves Sinhalese mixed with everything that landed on the Sri Lankan shores. Their DNA shows 70% south Indian and only 28% North Indian due to heavy mixing.

        Check your DNA, it will definitely match the Tamil Nadu Tamils.
        Today, the genealogy researchers at the Human Genetics unit of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Colombo will tell you that the DNA of most of the Sinhalese and Muslims in Sri Lanka is matching with the South Indians (Tamils, Malabars).

        The Sinhalese became a majority only after the European Colonials came to Sri Lanka. In the 16th century, the Portuguese and in the 18th century, the Dutch who occupied the island brought in tens of thousands of low caste (Dalit) people from South India (mainly from Cochin/Kochi in the Malabar coast/presently Kerala and from Tutucorin/Thootukudy in the Coromandel Coast/presently Tamil Nadu) and settled them in the Southern parts of the island from Puttalama up to Matara as menial laborers (for growing/peeling cinnamon – today known as Salagama caste, for fishing/pearl diving – today known as Karawa caste, coconut planting/plucking and toddy tapping – today known as Durawa caste, and for many other jobs). Within a few centuries, the Sinhala population in the South (low country) increased exponentially when these people assimilated with the local Sinhala population (Sinhalized) by adopting the Sinhala language/culture and the Buddhist/Christian religion and getting converted to Sinhala Buddhists and Sinhala Catholics.

        If you read the book “The World’s Oldest Trade”: Dutch Slavery and Slave Trade in the Indian Ocean in the Seventeenth Century” you will see that the Dutch settled tens of thousands of them in the South from Colombo to Galle.

        Professor K.M. de Silva in his book `A History of Sri Lanka`, refers to the migration of the Karawe, Salagama, and Durawe castes from Southern India to Sri Lanka between the 14th and 17th centuries AD.

        Professor of Anthropology Gananath Obeyesekere (in his book “Buddhism, Ethnicity, and Identity,”) states that “viewed in long term historical perspective Sinhalas have been for the most part South Indian migrants who have been sasanized (converted to Buddhism)”

        There is enough of evidence to prove that the Sinhalese became a majority only after assimilating with the South Indians who were brought by the Portuguese and the Dutch.
        Finally, even the latest genetic studies (DNA tests) have prove it beyond any doubt that the Sinhalese are having 70% South Indian (Tamil & Malabar) genes.

            Periya Marikkar, Sinna Lebbe and Pitchai Thamby are very famous Muslim names from the East.

            None can dispute the fact that Tamil speaking Muslims (Marakkala Minissu or Sonahars) of Ceylon are descendants of Tamil Hindus who embraced Islam in the latter part of the century when South India was under Muslim rule. It is only religion that divides the Tamils and Muslims. By ethnicity Tamils and Muslims are one. Tamil speaking Muslims of Eastern Province (Mother tongue Tamil, not Arabic) do not have the slightest resemblance to an Arab in stature or complexion. They bear Tamil names e.g. Periya Marikkar, Sinna Lebbe and Pitchai Thamby.

    contd
    Had they not kept quiet and joined the Tamils from the very beginning this would not have come to this level. They also kept quiet and enjoyed when the Tamils were killed raped their lands homes and properties looted and destroyed. During the large scale ethnic cleansing of Tamils from their homes towns and villages , when genocide and war crimes were committed on them. They danced and celebrated on the streets and held victory parades and were distributing sweets and cakes at home and offices with Tamils forced to participate and humiliated with the Sinhalese Buddhist racist sin the name of a common Sinhalese ethnicity or Islam and are now blinking. Never thought it will come to them. These people never realised once the powerful indigenous Eelam Tamils with their ancient history and lands in the island are subjugated and finished it will be a cake wake to finish the island’s Tamil Muslims and Sinhalese Christians . A powerful Tamil population that was equal would have been their guarantee to safety for all the island’s ethnic and religious minorities. However these people never realised that they were much smaller minorities, ethnic or religious than the Tamils with not much history or claim to any land and gleefully joined the Sinhalese Buddhist racist in their genocidal dance and are now reaping what they sowed. God does move in a mysterious way. I personally know of many Sinhalese Christians , some calling themselves born again too,who in the name of their ethnicity were openly advocating the island’s indigenous Tamils do not deserve anything.

      You Australoid Tamil crow Real Siva Sankaran whatever may be the topic and Muslims ethnicity is irrelevant to the topic, you never comment on the subject without mentioning the Muslims’ ethnicity that is they are Tamil converts. If you ask a Sinhalese Catholic what is his ethnicity, he will proudly say he is a Sinhalese. If you ask a burgher he will say British or Dutch descendant even if he have 90% of the features of other ethnicity. Why it’s killing you when a Moor says he is of Arab-mixed descendant? Of course if we had the feelings for generations that we are Tamils why shouldn’t we say so? There is no shame in it. The problem is we did not have that feeling for generations although we spoke a kind of broken Tamil language. I respondent with explanation for your many earlier lowly, inferiority complex comments but it seem you will never stop this. Now only it dawned to me the reason. You crows belonging to slavish people and converts for better life, those days all labourers of Muslims’ household were Tamil household boys and gardeners. I think when you were a podiyan (boy) you must have worked in a Thamby house and this Thamby noting your shapely back, got aroused and started the ‘chuk, chuk’ coal engine works on you. So that memory is killing you up to now and the reaction is demeaning comments on Moors for your own satisfaction.

        Do not be a racist. People go to work as servants because they are poor. Just as much there were Tamil servants in Muslim houses, there were Muslim servants in Tamil houses. Be decent and respect dignity of labour without running them down. As for ethnicity, two recent genetic studies have concluded that the core genetic material in those claiming as Moors is South Indian, with only a few having West Asian genetic material that too a maximum of 10%. it has been found that Bengali genetic contribution in Tamils is 29% and in Sinhalese is 26%. Despite this high percentage nether Tamils nor Sinhalese claim to be Bengali. The truth is that those Arabs who came to Srilanka came alone without their women and co-habited with local Sinhala women in south-west and local Tamil women in north-west. These Arabs were not Aristocrats and the women with whom they co-habited were from low class and low caste families. This is the reason why no Moor is able to trace their ancestry to any High class or High caste Sinhala or Tamil families. This is the same what happened in both Kerala and Tamil Nadu which has contributed to a substantial amount of the Muslim population in Srilanka. I am sure that if you get your DNA tested the result will be that your core genetic material is south Indian. You are calling Tamils as Australoids, but your racist cohort Ranjit sprw says that Tamils as not Australoids which contradicts you. For your information Tamil is the oldest Language and Hinduism is the oldest religion in the world, both of which are being practiced by Tamils. Whereas Arabic is not even in the first ten having derived from Aramaic and Islam is at a lowly tenth position. Does this not make Tamils superior to Arabs, who were hybrid race between Europeans and Africans and were nomadic desert dwellers without an ancient civilisation. Face the facts with dignity and articulate your views with decency without getting angry.

          Dr. Gnana Sankaralingam,

          Then please tell me what happened to indigenous Tamils of 2500 years old? What happened to people of Malabar coastal areas brought in by Portuguese and Dutch for tobacco plantation? Scientifically speaking, either so-called indigenous Tamils should have gone on to Malabar coastal areas, then brought back by colonial masters. Or, indigenous Tamils are a myth – But your population count, archaeological findings support latter. Tamil is (still with doubts) the oldest living language, but it on its way to faster extinction with much lower number of speakers than Marati. So it doesn’t expand, but shrinks. I am sure if not for English as your 2nd language, you wouldn’t have got your MBBS? And you wanted English as 1st language for your kids? For Arabs, they become doctors without help of English. And literary works in Arabic are rich and wide-spread with 420 million people speak today with many country’s first language. What is the status of Tamil in its birth place? Ancient civilization with mentioning Egypt? It seems the true marks of maturity are the wrinkles on a face for you.

            Please tell us your actual Sinhalese name, You racist extremist What happened to the low caste Tamils imported from the Malabar and Corammandel coast of South India by the Portuguese first and then the Dutch ? You know the answer. Why are you suffering from demetia? They all became Sinhalese Buddhists or Catholics. The so called Sinhalese Karawa, Salagama, Durawa , Hunu , Hali ETC now making up around 50% of the present day Sinhalese, may be even you, are their descendants. Many of them now the biggest anti Tamils and the supporters of the mythical Sinhalese lion and Aryan theory. This to hide their actual real low caste South Indian origin and that they were Tamils a few generations ago. So what if Marathi or Arabic is now spoken more people? This still does not have nothing to do with the richness and antiquity of Tamil and the status that it is the only ancient classical language that is still living and thriving. Don’t worry Tamil may be under attack in Sri Lanka by Sinhalese racists and low caste converted South Indian origin Tamil Muslim opportunists but is thriving in India and is spoken by around 100 million ( first and second language) it is Marathi that is now facing extinction from large scale North Indian onslaught to their lands. Hardly anyone now uses Marathi in Mumbai, only Hindi. Every one has to use Tamil in Chennai. Now the same thing is happening in their heartland Pune. This is why the Marathi have started to attack poor North Indian immigrants. . So why do you use English? Instead or Sinhalese or Arabic or Marathi? I think you are a retard.

The Maratha Brahmin scholars even today have great reverence for the Brahmin Tamils. The royalty of Bhonsle is warrior class and made just one mistake where sivaji son married a muslim from the harem (like Henry viii made that mistake with Catherine of Spain but his only daughter from anglo saxon became the queen to rule the world- Virgin Queen Elizabeth 1- that is Maratha indian friends .

The God Particle at CERN is from Chola Dynasty Iron age. the majority at matunga bombay at porriki tamils from film industry but the Brahmins go to the best Don Bosco school and are respected by the Brothers.- they speak marathi too and not just Hindi. Classical language Basque (euskara) spoken by the Basque country people (Euskal Herria) in the north of Spain and the south west of France. they were respected by Julius Caesar. Here the language is not taught in Spain but at France yet the unemployment is Zero and they are high tech industry and are very resourceful.

Yes, there are those among us who have chosen to hide their ancestry. Muslims are Tamils. Sinhalese are Tamils.

Sinhala is a religion of recent origin, concocted by deserters of Tamil. Suffice for the time being.

            You are saying that the indigenous Sri Lankan Tamils (Eelam Tamils) are tobacco farmers brought by Dutch from Malabar Coastal Area. Is there any proof for what you are saying or is it just a made up story? What reliable evidence (or any published authentic research) do you have to prove your historical fiction that the Jaffna Tamils were brought by the Dutch for Tobacco plantation.

            If what you are saying is correct then I have some questions for you to answer.

            1. The people of Kerala are known as Malayalees (Malabars) and they speak a language called Malayalam. How come those Malayalee tobacco farmers from Malabar Coastal Area became Tamils and adopted Tamil language/culture instead of Malayalam language/culture after coming to Sri Lanka?

            2. During the Dutch period, the Dutch Predikant Philippus Baldeaes (who lived in Jaffna) has mentioned about the inhabitants of Jaffna Patnam (in his book) as “this part of the country was times past peopled from Coromandel Coast”. He talks about ‘times past’ and not present time (Dutch period). So, how can you say Dutch brought them when the Dutch were saying, a part of the country was peopled TIMES PAST from the Tamil country?

            3. We all know about the Jaffna kingdom (all the historians have accepted it) that existed from 13th century onwards (long before the Dutch came) and the last Tamil king of Jaffna Cankli Kumaran was defeated in the battle with the Portuguese in the 16th century. What happened to all those Tamil people of Jaffna who lived during the Jaffna kingdom?

            Could you please answer these questions without running and hiding like you did before. Can you also show some reliable evidence to your story?

            Please come out of your racist mind set. Throughout history there had been people movement from India (mainly Kerala and Tamil Nadu) to Srilanka. There was a civilisation in the north which has been proved by discovery of several urn burial sites from Puttalam to Poonagari, which are hall marks of Dravidian settlements. Also ancient pottery have been found in the north which are similar to ancient pottery found in Tamil Nadu proving that the same ethnic group lived in both sides of t/he divide. All these people are the ancestors of Srilankan Tamils. There are five pre-Buddhist Siva temples in all corners of Srilanka, with the elusive fifth one accidentally found in Dondra. Incidentally the name Dondra is derived from Tamil word Thondu Munai and Siva temple there was named Thondeeswaram. Also temple at Kattaragama which belongs to Veddhas who worshiped Murugan proves Tamil influence on their lives. Even in eastern province stone inscription in Tamil dating back to 2000 years have been accidentally found whereas the earliest stone inscription in Sinhala that has been discovered so far dates only to 7th century AD. It is Sinhala racist propaganda that Tamils have no claim to Srilanka, which can be disproved if extensive archaeological surveys are undertaken with modern technology, which Sinhala people do not want to be done. Now that Aryan myth of Sinhala ancestry has been blown to pieces, this too is a certainty. Arab doctors sit for exams in the western countries in English. Had they done their studies only in Arabic they could not have been able to pass them. Many countries like Russia teach medicine in their own language and their doctors are unable to migrate to western countries due to this. Not only Arab countries but even Somalia and Sudan teach simultaneously in their language and English. For your knowledge Tamil literary works are far more richer than those of Arabic. Ancient Egyptian civilisation belong to the Coptics from whom Arabs learnt how to live in cities. Even in middle east, ancient civilisation belong to Sumerians and Assyrians which were destroyed by Arabs, and that is the reason why Arabs are unable to show any ancient monuments that can be attributed to their ancestors.

          They all know in their hearts what Siva is posting is the truth but do not want to accept it, as they have been brainwashed by their elite and politicians for around four generations to hate and look down on their actual Tamil origin and heritage and worship Arab in the strange belief that since they are Muslims, they of Arab heritage. It has no logic as most of the world’s Muslims 90% are not Arabs and admit this. To justify this they have created all sorts fake Arab origins and lineage. However when challenged, they could not prove anything. They also think that is Tamil hating Sinhalese majority Sri Lanka it will be more advantageous for their immigrant community to claim an Arab or Moor origin instead of a Tamil origin. They think they are something or someone if they claim this false Arab or Moor origin and nothing if they admit to their actual largely low caste Hindu Tamil origin from South India and will viciously attack anyone who is trying to dispel this myth and lie. This is why they are attacking Siva very viciously and vindictively thinking that he will give up and go away , so that they can return to their lie and myth. Now they will do the same to you.

You will be as you are Muslim descended from largely low caste Indian Tamil Hindu converts, who largely will be of Dravidian/Australoid or Australoid origin that is why you are fixated on Australoid as they are your ancestors. Most of the Arabs who came here were from the lower classes and many of the lower class Gulf Arabs have African slave blood in them, so do the Moors. If you claim Moorish or Arab blood you will also have Negro blood. Basically then you will be a mixture of low caste Dravidian/Australoid./Semite/Negroid. Happy. To me a human being is the same be they be Aryan European Chinese Indian Australoid or Negroid, as we all originated from one African Even. Only uneducated idiots like you, who cannot argue start screeching out these sort of nonsense, thinking you will look superior but in reality you are lowering yourself. DNA analysis have proved that the Sri Lankan Muslims are basically South Indians with a few hundred families having some Arab. This does not make them or the rest of Sri Lankan Muslims Arab/Moor. They are still Tamil.

        Arabs never arrive in the island or to South India in their thousands, only a few hundred over span of a few centuries. Their genetic contribution to the Muslim populations of Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Sri Lanka would have been minimal. Only in your Arabian Night wet dreams you and the rest of the Sri Lankan Muslims are desperately trying to dream of an Arab/Moor origin. Like I stated earlier these Arab traders/seamen would have been from lower strata of the Gulf Arab society and most of them would have been part African by origin. Go to the Arabian Gulf and North Africa and see the amount of African slave blood amongst the Arabs. Further north the so called Arabs in Lebanon Syria Jordan Iraq, Palestine are really not Arabs but Arabic speaking and are mixture of many races. White Semites,. Crusaders, Europeans, Phonecians, Greeks, Circassian, Aryans, and every other person. What you call Arab now is basically now Arab speaking a mixture of many races now speaking Arabic and largely following Islam. From the negroid population of Sudan to the Southern European looking people of Lebanon Syria to the much darker Gulf Arabs.

      “They danced and celebrated on the streets and held victory parades and were distributing sweets and cakes at home and offices” – What you expect? The majority within which only a minority being racist is better than a minority within which majority being racist. Why can’t you idiots understand, after all, it was the choice between a legitimate government and a terrorist group that did not respect the views of the very same people it represented? We see hundreds of voices coming up against few racists from the majority, but none had the courage to go against Prabakaran when he chased away the Muslims – Why blame Muslim’s decision now?

        Pattama Pakkama what happened to the photo that you were using, The devout western Asian woman that hardly looked like you. Why did you also dance and now having a guilty conscience. Piapakaran would not have chased the northern Muslims if they just minded their own business and did not backstab or spy for the racist Sinhalese armed forces. During a situation of war no one tolerates a fifth column living amongst themselves. They are interned or told to leave. He did the later. He also took this action taking into account the large scale atrocities that the Muslims and Muslims home guards were commuting on the Tamils in the east with the help of the Sri Lankan STF. Killing raping looting and ethnically cleansing Tamils. The Kattankudi mosque was the arms depot and headquarters. This is why Karuna attacked it. Muslims mobs and thugs also attacked Tamil homes and businesses down south. You seem to have conveniently forgotten all this Pattama. A Muslim minister introduced standardisation to deny Tamils higher education. Pattama did Prapakaran initiate all this. The Muslims who were dancing on the streets were not the displaced Northern Muslims but southern Muslims like you who initiated all this hatred between the Muslim and non Muslim Tamils with your fake Arab origin myth for your own benefits. Do not twist the truth for your own diabolical Saudi Wahhabi agenda. Shame on you deny your actual rich Tamil Muslim heritage and worship some barbaric desert Arab culture that belongs to the stone age.

          Hello fake “bra-man”, one of the reasons I confirmed internally that you’re an Austroloaid and not a Brahmin is because of low IQ you’re putting on the showcase here. If you’re still adamant, think if you’re a son of a workaholic father.

          By the way, most of your claims were cooked up stories. How can you prove it?And shows the extent you go to influence others to support a terrorist organization. So Whabbi terrorism is non-veg and LTTE is a veg-terrorism for your fake “bra-man” tongue?

    What has Wijeydasa Rajapaksa done to get such hatred and backlash from saints in our minority community?

    1. Has Wijeydasa said anything to protect those who set fire to Muslim establishments? NO
    2. Did Wijeydasa say he Sri Lanka is a Buddhist country? NO, in fact he got a backlash from Sinhala racists for saying so.

    So what has Wijeydasa Rajapaksa done?
    1. He went and met with that unruly monk in Mangalaramaya temple in Batti. Listened to his grievences and looked into their difficulties when living amidst a large muslim population.
    With that politically smart move, man has single handedly controlled that unruly monk and and we here no stories if him getting into fights with tamil speakers.

    2. Wijeydasa Rajapaksa has voiced his concern about many Buddhist ancient temples that have been demolished and destroyed by some extremist elements in Muslims.

    3. Wijeydasa has publicly challenged that Lakshan Dias that he was lying about 194 church attacks. Just about in few hours, the Lakshan fellow flew abroad to show he was under death threats and his life is in danger. He could have simply given the list of 194 churches that was destroyed instead of doing drama. Yet the guy did not do that.

    4. Wijeydasa Rajapaksa publicly stated there are NGOs who are working against the reconciliation in this country, and now expectedly the NGO clan is after him….

    So what is the wrong he has done?

    The psychiatric hospital in Angoda is for the treatment of patients suffering mental issues , the men and women there are not mad! . It is totally inappropriate especially public figures to use Angoda and mad men as a form of ridicule. It shows an utter lack of sensitivity to people who suffer from mental problems. The minister and the author who both seem highly educated ought to know better .
    Sadly our society is rotten, starting from the top.

    With this man, there is institutionalized racism. They are not doing this to win anything for the Buddhists but to drive away the minorities from the UNP as hilmi and many others suspect. So, let us not fall prey to this third rate scoundrel. He has a deal with Mahinda and Gota so that he can get back in to avant Garde.

    Everywhere on this forum, i see, hardline muslims, LTTE sympathizers, evangelist, green bloods and Marxist join in an orgy to sideline, criticize and disrepute the majority Buddhists and all those who speak about their rights. Speak about racism, this is racism in its greatest form. Funded and ideologically supported by powerful , rich western Christian countries, prosperous tamil diaspora and wealthy Muslim Arabian nations, understand that you guys are an immense majority cornering a tiny population of just 13 mil Sinhala Buddhists.

    Speak about fairness and justice, also speak about the ethical aspects of evangelist converting poor tamils and buddhists by bribing them with monetary gains. speak about the racist stance of Muslim politicians and the damages done to ancient buddhist sites of eastern province. under such fair approach you can also criticize the sinhalese for their racist acts and unfairness in treating other races.

      Most of these so called ancient Buddhist sites in the east were not Sinhalese but Tamil. Lots of ancient Tamils were Buddhist before they reconverted back to Saivaism. Many of these sites belong to the Mahayana sects. Sinhalese were never Mahayana Buddhists, only belonged to the Theravada sect. Ancient Tamil Buddhists belonged to both sects. Sinhalese now think that everything Buddhist in the island belongs to the Sinhalese, forgetting the fact the island’s Tamils also have a rich Buddhist past. It was the ancient Tamil Buddhists who were instrumental in spreading Buddhism to the rest of Asia including Sri Lanka. Sinhalese did not do anything. Many of the famous Buddhist monks in the Maha Vihara were Tamils. It was compulsory to have a good knowledge of Sanskrit Pali and Tamil to become a monk during ancient times at the Maha Vihara. Not Sinhalese as it never existed at that time , was still evolving as a language.

    Perhaps WR, one among the usually mad majority of Sri Lanka politicians, is becoming more mad trying to ‘make-up himself to step in to the President’s shoes’ which will be in stake not long before and he is moving faster to harness Buddhist support than the other man with the Urumaya label starts the move. Of course WR has the quite popular ‘Rajakse’ label as well. It is all positions not principles for these old, old political minds.
