Will Sri Lanka Become A Killing Field Again?

By P. Bertie Ranaweerage

According to Karuna Amman there had been only 80 LTTE  armed cadres by July 1983. JR who did almost nothing to protect the Tamils and their properties during the Black July Days in 1983 had no alternative but to send  those who managed to save their lives to the Northern and Eastern provinces. It is in the public domain that a large number of  Tamil youths who were sent to the North and East willingly joined the LTTE either to get revenge on the Sinhalese or on the belief that Eelam was the only remaining panacea  for all the problems  the Tamils. Karuna further said that  the number of  armed cadres of the LTTE had gone up to 40000 by the time he left the LTTE.

The Sinhala extremists and their leaders such as Elle Gunawansa, and Cyril Mathew who plotted and launched the Tamil pogrom in 1983 never in their wildest dreams  did think that the terror they unleashed on the Tamils would result in a 26 year disastrous internal war. Hence we have to ask ourselves now whether the terrorism of the blood thirsty BBS would  push the Moor /Muslims to extremism which may result in more destruction more violence and more bloodbaths .

Nobody never ever thought that this government would  do what  JR and Premadasa did  during the Black July days in 1983. We do remember that JR did not utter a single word against massacring of Tamils until the thugs and murderers had finished their job. Like wise the MR government took no meaningful measures to stop the Aluthgama mayhem and the President waited from June 15 to June 21 to make an appeal to the public to desist from attacking the others on the grounds of religion or ethnicity.

Aluthgama MulsimsThe recent  brutal attack on Watareka Vijitha Thera, after kidnapping him at night allegedly by the BBS thugs, has once again proved that the BBS is a fascist organization which does not tolerate those who speak  for inter ethnic harmony. It incidentally reminds us of  the cruelty  of the ‘ Patriotic Army ‘ of the JVP that  killed those stood for the 13th amendment  from 1987 to 1990.  Unless the BBS is stopped immediately by proscribing it and  incarcerating its junta  for years  there is no doubt that it will continue its terror against minorities. We can expect more attacks on Muslims’ property and more Muslim deaths. Not only they will attack the minorities but also the Sinhalese who are against them.

As the rulers continue its mollycoddling of the BBS it is continuing its attack on Muslims. The latest news is that they had attacked  ‘NOLIMIT‘ textile shop in Panadura owned by Muslims. And it will not be the last attack against Muslims and nobody will be amazed if they hear of another attack tomorrow morning.

It is tragic for the entire nation because the government has not understood the gravity of BBS’ fascism and its consequences. When  Muslims are continually attacked it may  push the Muslim youths to take up arms for the  protection of its community. Muslim extremism which has turned Iraq, Syria, Pakistan and Nigeria to a living hell will definitely extend its tentacles to Sri Lanka taking the advantage of the present situation here. Though killing others or committing suicide is a sin that opens the path to the hell for Buddhists, it is said that killing in the name of Islam is a sure path to the heaven where beautiful virgins, delicious foods ,drinks  and mansions  are in abundance .It may well could be one of the incentives that drives Muslims to kill enemies and ‘heretics’. Hence pushing Muslims to arm themselves will culminate in unimaginable tragedies for Sri Lanka. Not only it will be disastrous for both the Sinhalese and the Muslims but also for the economy of the country. In the event that the Middle East countries decide to limit the recruitment of workers from Sri Lanka the impact on the economy will be catastrophic.

Yet it is only a day dream if we expect the government to ban the BBS as it is an invisible ally of it. The President has already said that the BBS would not be proscribed in response to the requests made by Ministers Hakeem and Rishard Bathiudeen. In future elections the BBS probably field a few candidates under the UPFA and will do whatever possible to bring the UPFA and the incumbent President back to power as its future depends on the generosity of the Rajapaksa government.

The UNP has not so far understood that the BBS will be a major threat to it during future election campaigns. My belief is that the BBS will be used by some leaders of the government to attack the UNP election rallies and disrupt them. They will not hesitate to use petrol bombs and guns to attack the UNP rallies. Without understanding the gravity of the threat they are living in a utopian world dreaming that Ranil or Karu would be elected or would be allowed to be elected for the office of the Presidency next year.

As fascist BBS’ popularity is increasing among the extremist Sinhala Buddhists who are ready to kill in the name of Buddhism, it has posed a threat to the future of the Jathika Hela Urumaya and Wimal Weerawansa’s National Freedom Front. That is why Wimal Weerawansa threatens the government that he would resign unless his 12 resolutions are implemented.  They have already been forced to resort to various politrics in order to prevent their voters from deserting them and turning to BBS in case the BBS contest. Hence we can expect blood curdling  ‘patriotic ‘ speeches from both groups in future as Parliamentary elections and the Presidential election are to be held in 2015.

Mr. Hakeem, Minister of Justice and  senior Minister Mr. Dew Gunasekara have asked why the government failed to stop the mayhem in  Dharga Town, Beruwala, Welipenna and Aluthgama. It is pity that  they  have forgotten that they themselves area  part of the government.  They surely must know that the Rajapaksa government did not want to prevent it as its power is based on Sinhala Buddhists and it has to please its voter base to remain in power and regain power.

The violence against the Muslims could have been prevented not only by the government but also the parties of the Opposition , particularly  the UNP and the JVP. They could have launched an effective  propaganda campaign against the BBS’ fascism  to convince the public its destructive agenda and  rally people against the BBS’ madness. But the UNP failed to do so as  it has become a confused  and stranded political party in the political wilderness sans a road map .With regard to the JVP it  was not interested in  launching a campaign against its erstwhile comrades  as it feared that it would erode its  Sinhala Buddhist vote base.

The Muslim Congress and the Muslim Ministers too could have prevented the onslaught against the Muslims to a certain  extent had it acted decisively at the right time. it is not wrong to assume that they hesitated to act decisively simply because Muslim Ministers did not want to say good bye to the privileges they have been enjoying  being a part of the Rajapaksa government.

Now Sri Lanka has arrived at a critical juncture. Another civil war is being prepared by the BBS, Sinhala Ravaya and Rawana balaya By not condemning this extremists, Chief Priests of Malwatta and Asgiriya and prominent Buddhist priests such as Maduluwawe Sobhtha Thera are contributing to a future civil war here. Unless the government  understand that the BBS’ non-stop attacks on Muslims will force Muslims to arm themselves and retaliate, nobody will be able to prevent  this land becoming a killing field once again.

    Bertie should explain first who he is and what his back ground and affiliations are.

    Otherwise, interested parties preach in order to fulfill their specific objectives. You are just one of the interested parties.

      Huh? I think you should look in the mirror and ask yourself that question.
      How much more idiotic can you get to ask what the writer’s affiliations are? Can’t you see that he is talking total sense, giving a strong anecdotal narrative as to how the uprising that we all suffered from for 30 years was fomented by blinkered politicians and half-brained twits like you?

      I will ask you, what is your back-ground and specific objective in trying to deflect genuine concern such as this? Who are you talking for?

          Even this writer is another stupid who is harbouring the prejudice against Islam.

          He says: ..” it is said that killing in the name of Islam is a sure path to the heaven where beautiful virgins, delicious foods ,drinks and mansions are in abundance .”

          I am sking from where in the hell this bugger is picking up this shit from? Without knowing Islam the easiest thing they do is pick a line from a anti-Islamic website and just post without any verification if it was a true saying or not. THIS IS THE REASON why Mahinda is being elected – PREJUDICE….

        Good article, while the Rajapaksa brothers project is to Distract the Sinhala Buddhist Modayas -SBM- (with the Balu Sena and its attacks on minorities from the REAL ENEMY which is Rajapakse CORRUPTION, IGNORANCE, Lack of education AND RACISM) and Divide and Rule Lanka, the fact as noted here, is that the political parties are a DISGRACE and have failed to educate SBMa on the right thing to do.

        The Muslim Congress leadership and the shameless corrupt clown Rauf Hakeem, the UNP’s shameless dictators Ranil Wickramasinghe and the dead leftist are ALL as bad as the Jarapassa brothers. They should have demanded
        1. Arrest of GAG an the other Balu Sena leaders IMMEDIATELY
        2. Ban on BBS
        So the writing is on the Wall- another blood bath so that SBMs can fell that they are VICTIMS of minorities even though they are the PERPETRATORS of the Greatest violence against minorities and and insult to the Buddha. Long live SBMs in the Miracle of Modayas!

      Mr.Jim Softy

      I was the president of Ceylon Teachers’ Union, a union affiliated to no political party, for a number of years. Ceylon Teachers’ Union, which has branches from South to North, had some close comradeship with the JVP from 1978 to 1980 July but we severed links with it when we found that the JVP had conducted a secret operation to sabotage the 1980 general strike. CTU from the first day it was founded has been carrying on an untiring campaign for the unity of the Sinhalese ,The Tamils and the Muslims.It strongly believes that this country can never be united by guns and thuggery.

      Do the silent Sinhala Buddhist majority realize that Sinhalese are becoming the Serbs of Asia and Sri Lanka becoming the now defunct Yugoslavia?

      The more they oppress the smaller Tamil and Muslim nations in the island, the more the chances are that 3 states will be formed in the island by the international community.

      It’s too late to save ‘Sri Lanka’ with the majority Sinhala mentality of electing more and more racist governments since independence.

      You can’t cleverly pretend that it’s a minority of Sinhala extremists who cause trouble to the minorities.

    Didn’t Gannassara say he is with the West all the way…And it is in the CT.

    And Hakeem is in constant touch with the Lady Ambassador in Colombo.

    UNP Christian Faction Leader and his council was in high level talks with the BBS as late as last year.

    And to top it all , aren’t the Norwegians the pioneer Venture Capitalists to kick start this new BBS , long before the US got onto its share Register?.

    Can you see any space where the new Common Candidates Ranil or Karu can sneak in to upset the Apple Cart?.

    “Will Sri Lanka Become A Killing Field Again?”

    Ours’ has been a killing fields since independence. Political violence against our Sinhala youth, a bloody civil war and now, ethnic cleansing of all our minority Tamil, Muslim and Christians before the government can finish off all political opponents, mass media and very soon, intellectuals that oppose the dictatorship.

    One needs leadership qualities and not manipulative qualities to lead the country. Rajapakse will not proscribe BBS as he does not have leadership qualities. Until now, since he became the President, he has been manipulating everyone, including his own MPs. What can we expect from a President who does not have the Leadership Qualities, appointment of committees which do not produce reports or even if they produce reports they never get published. This is the result of Manipulative Qualities which Rajapakse possesses.

    The writer correctly points out how Sinhala extremists had fallen into the trap set up by Tamil fascists in 1983. Had the goverment had gone after the Tamil murderers of the 13 soldiers and not allowed the breakdown of law and order, they could have prevented the decades long conflict. The Muslims of Sri Lanka have suffered first at the hands of Tamils, and now under extremist Sinhalese. With a large military at the disposal of the government, there should be a zero tolerance policy towards those who provoke violence and intolerance regardless who they happen to be. The policy should explained to BBS and TNA that provocation is no longer could be disguised as legitimate free speech. Islam will not be a threat (as BBS considers) to the nation as it not sufficiently attractive to the masses for the purpose of conversion. They are minority who keep their faith to themselves, and willing to live in a peaceful manner. Thus, the state has correctly come to their aid.

    This sums up.
    There is no willingness among Majority community to criticize this STATE SPONSORED terrorism against minorities.In effect the state machinery is use to maximize damage during these pogroms.State itself is a FASCIST STATE.

    TO DECONSTRUCT a fascist State international collaborative effort is needed, just like WW 2 German Narzis,Italian Mussiloni,Japan’s Hiro Hito
    The Sinhala Fascist State must be Deconstructed and built from scratch,

    1.With implementation of a new federal constitution,

    2.New modern small representative armed forces with proper training in human rights.
    3.With proper education for Sinhalese children on their culture and countries history (Not the Mahavansa/Mahanama/Anakarika Dharmapala/JHU/Pattali Champika/Gnasarsara version).

    This is what Chief Minister of North Mr.C.V.Wigheswaran was eluding to some months back.

    All these needs time and money no one would be interested in this day and age in the misery of the Lankan state.

    The quick fix will be either a two/three state solution or annexation of North-East in to Indian Federal state.

    Sinhala majority is to be blamed if any of this to happen as they remained silent spectators,and provided tacit approval when repeated assault on the minorities were carried out in their name by ultra nationalist over the last 66 years since independence from Britain.

    I can remember the events that took place in July 1983. One of my student(who lived in a Tamil house 300 meters away from where I lived)house was burnt down. I went to see him at Anula Vidyalaya(Nugegoda camp) where he said his application for IDPM part 2 eaxam with all notes were burnt. He was shipped to Jaffna next week. We can believe from the way things happened, it was a plan from both sides to get all the Tamils from Colombo to Jaffna so it could be easier to demand a separate State. Cyril Methew was one of the most senior members of UNP. The people who set fire to the house(residents gone to work and college) were the UNP supporters(during all elections they decorate the shop and the house with green flags) who had a small vegetable shop next door.

    P. Bertie Ranaweerage –

    “Now Sri Lanka has arrived at a critical juncture. Another civil war is being prepared by the BBS, Sinhala Ravaya and Rawana balaya By not condemning this extremists, Chief Priests of Malwatta and Asgiriya and prominent Buddhist priests such as Maduluwawe Sobhtha Thera are contributing to a future civil war here. Unless the government understand that the BBS’ non-stop attacks on Muslims will force Muslims to arm themselves and retaliate, nobody will be able to prevent this land becoming a killing field once again.”

    Yes. This is where it is headed. Why?

    1. The Para-Sinhala, the Para-Sinhalese Buddhists believe in the lies and imaginations of Monk Mahanama,in the Land of Native Vedda.

    2. The UPFA will go along and try to get the Sinhalese Racist Buddhist racist segment Support. Those Sinhala who are Buddhist, not racist and Buddhist will have the pick of UNP and JVP and UPFA. Assuming that 10 to 15% of the Sinhalese Buddhists are Racists, this leaves 60% of the Buddhist non-racist Sinhala to be grabbed between the racist UPFA, and UNP and JVP.

    3, So, the play is getting the non-racist Sinhala Buddhist voters to vote for them.

    Minorities, Muslims are being used in this Chess game, and appeasement of BBS , and JHU. Turning law abiding Buddhist Sinhala who follow the Dhamma and Turn them into Sinhala Buddhist Racists and Chauvinists who follow the Mara and Maahinda Rajapaksa, is the current contest.

    According to Karuna Amman there had been only 80 LTTE armed cadres by July 1983.

    Thats far more than some others were suggesting. The riot was LTEE recruitment drive.

    The 83 riot is not relevant to how it all started. Its not relevant because Rajiv G, Dixit, Prabakaran and Amirthalingam et al had already decided there was going to be a war for entirely different reasons.

    Sambanthan going back and forth between SL and India trying to say SL is conspiring against India with China. It was Amirthalingam who did this back then. Instead of China Amirthalingam conned Indira SL was conspiring against SL with US presence in the region.

    When someone really wants a war they get it. Although there is some poetic justice about it all. All accept Dixit died due fire they themselves started.

    A very sensible and a wonderful article, straight from the heart !
    Thank you sir Mr. Bertie Ranaweerage. Most people don’t think the way you appraise the situation. It’s very consoling to realize that we still have honest thinking people amongst us. Evey line written by you is fact and your prediction and warning of Lanka becoming another killing field is not far away if political and religious thuggery is not stopped.
    Wish we had enough of right thinking, sincere, honest people with guts, like you. You are such a good human, a living example, without possessing any anti minority complex sentiments, religious or racial prejudices.

    Things are not going to change, unfortunately so long as we have dirty politicians. Our future seems bleak now. I had some hope and optimism but it’s just drifting away..
    A drastic change of everything is urgently required. If not there are greater vultures hoovering around us to gobble up everything we still have. Destiny cannot be changed..Our beautiful country has gone to dogs, pariah dogs. What else can we say !

    Some part of the Sinhala population have the mind set that Sri Lanka is ALL theirs. They think like supremacists, and resent others flourishing, or being successful. They have a strong hatred for others, and can be easily brainwashed into attacking innocent Sri Lankans, damage their homes, places of worship, loot, set fire, and kill, after given some liquor to drink and a buth packet for lunch. They become deranged animals very fast and easily, and turn on their fellow countrymen for cheap.
    The majority of Sinhalese people are compassionate and tolerant, but cannot unite and speak against those who have hijacked their religion, insulting Lord Buddha, and destroying this country.

    Very well considered article. We should congratulate the writer for his clear thinking and writing. I hope this will make the politicians think. If you visit the YouTube there are so many hate speeches by the monks from BBS and some Muslims. Unless serious action is taken to stop this spreading the country is going to embrace serious violence. This has been brewing over the last two years. There is a YouTube video researched by someone it compares Burma incidence of killing thousands of Muslims this was instigated by budhist monks too. BBS could be connected.

    I hope UN or other international forces take action but there is a news that BBS is sponsored by Isreal or Norway etc.

    God help sri lanka

    Bertie,

    The way you describe it sounds like all the Sinhalese are pro BBS extremists whom the government (JVP, UNP) is trying to woo. I don’t think is a correct Portrayal.

    I think there is more to this, I think the government is trying to force the Muslims to take up arms because people have seen through this government and is incapable of handing the country locally and internationally. The only thing they are good at is war and every single person in this country knows this fact. So what better way to staying power for next few decades? WAR!!

    So let’s create a new war… with Muslims this time.

    One major point MARA is missing though.

    LTTE was started from ground Zero.

    For Muslims on the other hand there are enough and more well established “Terrorist” Organizations internationally who would make LTTE look like a bunch of kitty cats.

    This time around God forbid if there is another ethnic war it would be a very very long and a bloody one. I hope that day would never come. i hope dumb ass MARA and Gota would see this reality.

    Mr. Bertie Ranaweerage:

    Turning a blind eye to the suffering off the Tamils and now the Muslims is a familiar story in Sinhala Lanka and that is because of the racial hatred of the 20 Million Racists Sinhalese which is in their Gene and that will never change doesn’t matter who is in power.

    But let me tell you one thing ” NO MORE TAMIL BLOOD” as we have a party ( BJP) which is in power which will act swiftly if we have another Race Riot in which Tamils are killed and we will have another CRIMEA but even without a Race Riot we are heading in that direction.
    MR will not willingly change but he will be forced to change and during his recent visit to Delhi he was given a taste of what is to come. I am not sure if the Muslims have any outside support other than the UN as Muslim Countries are not willing to come to their rescue.
    No guarantee there will be “NO MORE MUSLIM BLOOD”.

    The Tamils have already faced the worst. Now, it is the turn of the Muslims. Before long, you can be certain, it will be the turn of the Sinhalese to face it! That, is inevitable!

    A very logical article.

    I believe Muslims will not turn to taking up arms. This is mainly due to their own protection as unlike in ’83 where after the July carnage most Tamils were concentrated in North and East and the rest left the country.

    Whereas for Muslims they are spread all across the Island. An armed conflict will be disadvantageous to us. Also vast majority of Sri Lankan Muslims do not like the idea of leaving the country , our roots are here.
    This is mainly due to by and large Muslims were able to practice their religion peacefully in this country and go about their business. History has shown that Muslims have been always been working with the majority community to safeguard unitary nature of the country.

    However the moderate Muslim will change his perception about the loyalty to his/her motherland.

    Having said that Muslims are also fully aware of all this is a political game. They are very clear this is not the agenda of the whole nation.
    In every community there are few who hold extremist views. After all this is a country where they killed their own in thousand without any sympathy. No justice has been given to any of those 1,000’s killed.

    All what we need is to instill a good government. This of course is not possible to achieve by minorities alone. This is where moderate political parties have to take a lead.

    Small it maybe but JVP actions to create awareness among masses by distributing posters and canvasing unity is commendable, it is a step in the right direction.

    Muslims will tap in to large number of muslims countries to influence the SL Gov. Several leading news papers in the Middle East region (and across the globe) have highlighted the current communal riots. OIC has issued a statement. Sri Lanka stand to loose a lot directly, if these countries take any drastic measures. Tourism form Middle East will stop.

    I think Rajapksa will miss the trick if they allowing this violence to escalate.

    They have given a fitting welcome to the new HR Chief. what a foolish act. The agents who want to see Sri Lanka dead and berried are winning.

        Kali Mann, the message is simple just because few took to violence we do not label the whole Singhala population as communal.
        On the other hand what Kari Mann wants is for the Muslims to join hand with them to further their Peelam dream which will never happen.

        This is why Muslims are more patriotic, where tail are waiting for every opportunity to jump on the Singhala Buddhist.

            The Sinhalese population at the last count in 2011 was 15,173,820, Tamils 2,270,924, Muslim 1,869,820, Indian Tamil 842,323, Malay 40,189, Others 29,586. Total 20,263,723.

            “All 20 million of you are racist and violent except for a few thousand.”

            Therefore just over 3 million Tamils are too racists. You are right.

              You are old enough to be wise but you are sending a message full of Contradictions.
              Racism is when you hate or attack another Race for who they are and what they believe in.
              Defending your right as Tamils had to do is what you call Fight for Freedom. we didn’t start it you lot did but you are never going to admit and that is why we are parting company. Marriage is over.

    “When Muslims are continually attacked it may push the Muslim youths to take up arms for the protection of its community…” This option is out. Muslim youth would have taken up to arms years ago if they could have made a difference. To start with, the Muslim community is divided into, at least, two major parts. Those in the South and those in the NEP. In fact, both sides speak the Tamil language differently.
    Their habitats are so non-contiguous and spread throughout even a token armed attempt will result in major losses and casualties for them, as the Aluthgama resistance showed. Their future, it appears to me, is that of the pre-1980s i.e. to join the main Sinhala political formations viz:- SLFP, UNP, TNA, JVP and express their needs through these. Going separately only made billionaires out of their leaders and uncertainty and misery, such as they unfortunately suffer now, to the rest of the Muslims.

    Nonetheless, if the Govt is worth its name it must protect,
    offer succour/quick and adequate compensation; an assured future to all Muslims in the country now undergoing sleepless nights. What right have the rest of the country to carry on as normal when a section of our brothers and sisters are in tears? It is encouraging the USA and India have already asked the Rajapakse Govt to protect their Muslims. Former TN/CM Shri M. Karunanidhi, whom many Lankan Muslims often spoke of derisively, is one of the first to appeal to PM Modi to go to the assistance of Lankan Muslims.

    Can any of these Malwathu- Asgiri Chief Priests such as Maduluwawa Sobitha thera can explained to me a different version of Buddha’s teaching then preached, to live in a manner which values the moment as it is,free of desire and free of suffering In BUDdhist terms suffering means Anguish,Heartache,longing,wishing, hoping for a person or an object or condition which is not present.So what is this desire of “Budu bala” a devidathara balakaya going to achieve in ‘OUR’ country SRILANKA’.Ven Sobitha Thera, Lord Buddha Is not a Political Party Symbol Owned by So called SINHALA Buddhist an insane rowdy gang in Srilanka. Fist of all ‘Lord Buddha’ is an Indian Prince with unshakable firmness,invariable kindness,and endless patience.All his beautiful teachings were, speeches given in harmony in Indian soil.These Buddhist priest are an obstacle and a disgrace to Buddhism, and to a religion brought to Srilanka as a gift to celebrate friend ship between two countries.

    Mad man. First you study the incident carefully and write. Read latest news and correct your brutality. Apologize for the statement you have made against BBS. -(“The recent brutal attack on Watareka Vijitha Thera, after kidnapping him at night allegedly by the BBS thugs, has once again proved that the BBS is a fascist organization which does not tolerate those who speak for inter ethnic harmony.”)

    Bertie,

    You asked the question in the title of your article ‘Will Sri Lanka Become A Killing Field Again?’

    In the very last phrase of your article you provided the answer, ‘nobody will be able to prevent this land becoming a killing field once again.’

    I for one believe that giving birth to this monstrous child called ‘BBS’ with ample blessings and nurturings from the Rajapaksa Mafia, this child has and will do the demonic duties that is expected of it. The wheels are in motion now and cannot be reversed.

    ..and so…dooms day is expected soon ?..!! Let there be some END to this misery of Tamils and Muslims sufferings.
    Or UN, USA, UK, IC, India will get involved for sure ! and Rajapukas are ready and will flee with their loot and lots of blood in their hands…and Sri Lankans will vote for another stupid monster and a fake Sinhala Buddhist to become the butcher of silly racist Lanka..the story will continue..
    until probably Narendra Modi take some interest but then one cannot trust India too, especially the North Hindians -:)
    The late Saibaba said before the May 2009 killing fields, that “Blood will flow in Lanka” and no one can stop that happening. It so happened and still going to happen..it has not ended yet.
    Hanuman burned the whole of Lanka by setting fire with his tail which was set on fire by Rawana, according to the epic Ramayana. Rajapakses are setting fire in Aluthgama and other places and finally that fire will burn up Lanka. History repeats…
