Will ‘Yahapalanaya’ Roll Back Racism ?

Canada’s celebrated Sikh soldier Harjit Sajjan is among the many Sikhs appointed to Justin Treaudeau’s new cabinet. His outstanding performance in the Canadian military has been duly recognized with his appointment as Canada’s Minister of Defence. Sajjan’s military brilliance was displayed in combat operations in Bosnia and Afghanistan .What message does this convey to those that  run  and those that ran the affairs of state over here in Sri Lanka for over half a century? Besides, what does this prestigious appointment speak of the Canadian mind.

Opposing Lakshman Kadirgarmar’s Prime Ministerial appointment despite all his efforts in proscribing the LTTE internationally was the restricted, warped ultra-nationalist mindset . They were not willing to let go but would still call themselves Buddhists and lay claim to a religion that vehemently calls for detachment. Contrary to this is all inclusive Indian pluralism so evident in the presidential appointments of Zakir Hussain and Abdul Kalam not to forget Sonia Gandhi a non national who even gave Congressional lead to the 2004 Indian election victory. A minority Sikh Manmohan Singh took control of Prime ministerial office. 
The swiss cantons and India’s state formation – Telangana the latest, symbolize the accommodation of ethno/religious minorities in those countries.

Very recently  the Lankan jingoistic membership could not help but grudgingly green light R. Sampanthan as oppostion leader – the international community focus on his appointment. Yet it was not without rumblings from certain quarters.

To be treated equal among equals is only on paper,  and a recent case in point displays the gross violation of this profound thought coming off the Sri Lanka police. Some DIGs during Rajapaksa’s era were promoted to the post of senior  DIG s overlooking DIG Latiff formerly of the STF with  a 37 year service record, masters qualification, numerous awards and ambidextrous ways. Can the former regime then deny the charges of racism staring at their face.

In another instance Sumeda Jayasena, Vijithamuni Soysa, Sashindra Rajapaksa, Jagath Pushpakumara and Chairman Moneragala Pradeshiya Sabha Gamini ganged up against him for the “unpardonable crime” of personally arresting their henchman – a team of  poachers, sand miners and illicit timber fellers. With just one stroke of a pen, this honourable officer was transferred out of Moneragala in a letter worded, ‘with immediate effect.’ That was the audacity and arrogance of the Rajapaksa era who now from roof top criticize the the present regime. That an officer of his calibre was humiliated by a set of empty brained vagabonds for the moral discharge of his professional duties is to say the least ,nauseating. The fate that may have befallen this country if not for that mysterious  January   8th revolution, followed by that discreetly manipulated creative hopper party is only God’s knowledge. Yet, this is certainly not to pay a glowing tribute to Yahapalanaya. There are moral meanderings and they too carry the potential to equal Rajapakse and company unless a stern Presidential eye is cast on them. Not to forget are the Rajapaksa acolytes now in presidential company who may disrepute him in corruption and racism.

It is believed to be that the Muslims, Tamils and upper caste Sinhalese share commonality  in discrimination. The ’72 constitution with its politicization of the judiciary, executive and legislative saw an exodus of  what is termed ‘lower caste ‘ into these arms of government. As a result, the plums of high office became the sole preserve of those down the caste ladder. At an interview, commonality of caste is only too natural in the selection of candidates. President Maithripala Sirisena himself paid a heavy price in the SLFP’s caste based power struggle. He was denied his rightful place in the SLFP for his, what is called ‘elevated’ placement in the  the caste ladder. Finally his only option was the infamous hopper party from where he got even more than what he strove for. It needs an astute observation lense to see how even now caste operates discreetly in this country.

Though ethnicity is a recent entry into the Sinhala social landscape, pluralism and devolution of power is all old hat to Sri Lanka -the first of which we see in the diverse ethnic groups that made Sri Lanka their home , the second is a proven fact for the three administrative units of Ruhunu, Maya and Pihiti displays in no small way a willingness to share power in ancient Ceylon. Tamil kings like Sankili and Pararajasingham ruled the Jaffna kingdom. Ceylonese royalty even tied the nuptial knot with Indian Tamil women nevertheless of royalty  and similar social status.

In examining the causes that led to this very narrow, chauvinistic and retarded mindset  is inter Alia, majoritarianism that worsened with the ‘Sinhala only  beat’ – the first an external deposit , the second ,an autochthonous one. Adding fuel to the fire was the ’72  followed by the ’78 constitution when centralized power was concreted. The upwardly mobile class, with newly found riches jobs and social status had moved out of caste units into a class system and were firm  adherents of  majoritarianism  from which the communal card sprang. With only a smattering of English at hand, not being exposed fully to the language perse, this class remained chained in their restricted enclaves unable to rise above the ordinary and mediocre. Many politicians themselves of this class membership stood to gain for it was their vote base into power installation. The absence of role models was yet another reason for this morally decadent, ultra-nationalist mindset. In the absence of statesmen only politicians remained. There was no high calibre ,moral leader, emulation worthy, for this class to fall back on nor look up to when all what they heard was the petty ‘jaatiya aagama’ cry which regrettably did the country no good. Despite the many irregularities in the present administration, it needs to be re-iterated that  the communal rhetoric at every street corner  known to be former presidential forte has ceased to be the spoilers being the corrupt under Sirisena’s wing causing him much discomfort. For instance Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe who was upheld as being above board came crashing down lock, stock and barrel shattering his public image of, ‘Mr. Clean’. Some political top brass also bring disrepute to the present administration when those that share common umbilical chord also share the plums of high office. Its time that a full stop to such moral meanderings became operational lest yahapalanaya is dubbed some other and it already has. Yet these critics have no moral right to do so considering the white vans that prowled in the darkness of night  in an era of vampires. But two wrongs do not make a right.

Ministerial choice of biological appendages into powerful seats continue under the guise of having confidence in such. If so, Mahinda Rajapaksa’s choice preferences that sorrounded him could also be green lighted for the very same reason. Those that strongly opposed nepotism in the past are not free of that guilt today.

Selfless leaders are good role models as we find in Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Abraham Lincoln to name a few. But, it was not our fortune to have such whom we could emulate and look up to. The only one we had was Dr. E.W. Adikram who  preferred to be very much a private person than engage in politics, knowing its disrepute in Sri Lanka. Incidentally, Weerawansa and company of the former JVP with their,’thousand tanks ‘ and honorary service fell foul and the rest is forgotten history.

If they did honour their promise, they certainly may have been good ingredient as role models. But that’s asking pearls from swine. Whatever be the fate that befell the tanks, Weerawansa remains a very belligerent think tank for the ousted regime – certainly a  former Presidential side kick kicking aside truth, seemingly a good beneficiary of Rajapakse. Significantly, it is ingrained in the Sri  Lankan to go back on one’s word and this moral incongruity starts from those that give the political leadership. Ironically that is the political legacy we are destined to endure where role models are concerned. The only ‘role models ‘the nation is left with are political deceits, liars and con men whom the citizenry has taken after .

Role models apart, Sinhala literature itself so rich in imagery and style yet does not connect the readership with a higher purpose. For instance Rabindranath Tagore, Leo Tolstoy, Omar Qayyam and the like stimulate the depths of our inner conscience and take us on a journey of  profound elegance. When Martin Wickremasinghe writes about the emerging middle class he does so with his very  astute observational powers and remarkable fist. None can deny the richness therein. Thotagamuwe Sri Rahula resorts to very colourful, star class  imagery in his salalihini sandesaya describing a royal birth but does not engage the readers into a higher realm of thinking. The ephemeral ecstasy experienced in world class literature and the abstract component is found wanting in local setting.  In this abstractness is the mind’s ability to experience the totality of existence where the mind rejects all boundaries which world literature offers. Tagore’s one single expression tells it all. “Where the world has not been broken into fragments by narrow domestic walls”  _ those of social constructs coming off nation, state, class,  caste, religious group, ethnicity and the rest. The absence of its equivalent in  any one of Sinhala texts creates the necessary space for not viewing the world in its totality _ the focus being on particularism rather than  universality which breeds communalism.

Devoid of systemic existence, the ancient Sinhalese were a classy people, with a broader world view, so very enlightened and had every right to call themselves Buddhists.

    The solution is education. Children in their initial schooling must be given text books which stress the importance of unity and tolerance. They must not be taught history which is twisted by chauvinistic leaders.
    Unfortunately it is difficult in Srilanka. It is because the Sinhala-Buddhists perceive themselves as a minority in the Indian subcontinent. They fear their own extinction if other minorities prosper in this island.
    But what they don’t realize is that this island cannot go forward if there is ethnic and religious tensions. These tensions will drag our economy down and make us puppets in the hands of international predators. Unfortunately our leadership does not have the foresight to understand these dangers.

      “What message does this convey to those that run and those that ran the affairs of state over here in Sri Lanka for over half a century? Besides, what does this prestigious appointment speak of the Canadian mind.”

      Will Sinhala “Buddhists” Roll Back Maha Wansa-ism? Will the Saudi Wahhabis Roll Back Wahhanism, Salafism, Tauheedism, Najadism, ISIS-ism etc

      President Obama had a black Kenyan Father and a White mother, and nevertheless in American Classification he is African American. Never mind ALL Americans, including the Native “Indians” are African Americans, according to the DNA in their bodies.).

      However, based on the lies and imagination in the Mahawansa, Sinhala Buddhist Racists cannot accommodate such egalitarian concepts. Are Sinhala “Buddhists” Buddhists?

      1. Data supports that Sinhala are Para-Sinhala who came from India. They are the Sinhala Buddhist Wahhabis of Lanka, the Land of Native Veddah Aethho. They specialize in killing Tamils and Muslims, while the Saudi Wahhabis and their clones, ISIS etc. specialize in killing Shia, Sufis, Ahmedia, and other non-Wahhabis.

      2. The Sinhala “Buddhist” Wahhabis Follow Mara and their Sacred Book, Mahawansa, which is an Insult to Buddha.

      Mahavamsa- An Insult To The Buddha! By Sharmini Serasinghe –

      https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/mahavamsa-an-insult-to-the-buddha/

      “Wonder if ours might have been a wiser, and a more ‘humane’ society, had our ‘ancient’ history, been based on Aesop’s Fables, instead of the Mahavamsa. For if not for the Mahavamsa, the Sinhalese may not have been endowed, with the reputation, of “Sinhalaya Modaya (The Sinhalese are Fools)”!”

      3. Mitochondrial DNA history of Sri Lankan ethnic people: their relations within the island and with the Indian subcontinental populations

        RE: Will ‘Yahapalanaya’ Roll Back Racism ?

        Question: Are the Saudi Wahhabis Racist? or Just Followers of Iblis, Satan?

        SAUDI PRINCE ALWALEED BIN TALAL, A SENIOR MEMBER OF THE SAUDI MONARCHY, SAYS HE’LL PLEDGE HIS $32 BILLION TO ADVANCE THE ISLAMIZATION OF AMERIC

        http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/saudi-prince-pledges-32-billion-on-the-islamization-of-america/

        The Saudis have spent billions already. 80% of the mosques built in America are Saudi funded. Islamic groups working to impose the sharia are largely funded by the Saudis. We can look forward to 32 billion more of the “kingdom’s brand of Islam, while censoring criticism of Islam.”

        And it’s not just the media that is on the receiving end of this blood money, but also Muslim Brotherhood fronts like CAIR, which spend millions whining about how lucrative the “islamophobia” business is. As if …the Saudis have been wildly successful so far.

        Wikileaks has begun releasing a trove of documents — half a million cables and other documents from the Saudi Foreign Ministry. Wikileaks declares, “Media is not ‘controlled by Jews’ but by Saudi Arabia: media loyalties purchased around the world.” Notice how this wikileaks release has garnered little press.

        Alwaleed says he will model his endowment on the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, only with a twist: Much of his philanthropic work will help “foster cultural understanding” of Islam in America and the West.

        That means promoting the kingdom’s brand of Islam, while censoring criticism of Islam.

        Published reports and books reveal Alwaleed already has pledged millions to radical Muslim Brotherhood front groups that have a secret plan to Islamize America and spread Shariah law throughout the West. These pro-jihad groups can now count on a massive and virtually endless infusion of cash to their war chests. source

    “Will ‘Yahapalanaya’ Roll Back Racism ?”

    Free education and unemployment caused the 1st revolution and it was also the start of northern terror.

    You still get beastly marxist who would never budge- parasites by nature knowing well that it was American peoples money given to Stalin and Mao that created their totalitarianism- socialist/communist governments that still depend on the democratic west for trade.

    `Complacency and arrogance` would bring the island further- there won’t be roll back it’s not part of culture after independence- ¬sddage kaale! given the opportunity they want to be in the rich west but abuse the west even while in the west. They bring racism to the west as seen at cricket matches.

      “Free education and unemployment caused the 1st revolution and it was also the start of northern terror.”

      Free education taught the masses to read Mahawansa, and to say Tamils are “Para-Demala” when in fact the Sinhala are “Para-Sinhala”, in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho.

      Through a comparison with the mtDNA HVS-1 and part of HVS-2 of Indian database, both Tamils and Sinhalese clusters were affiliated with Indian subcontinent populations than Vedda people who are believed to be the native population of the island of Sri Lanka.

    “Will ‘Yahapalanaya’ Roll Back Racism ?” If they try it, they will be rolled back by the Sinhala Buddhist voters.

    The so-called ‘Yahapalanaya doesn’t even have the guts to free the 200 odd Tamil political prisoners held indefinitely without trial.

    If you think they would roll back institutionalized racism voluntarily, you may be out of your mind.

    Racism seeps to the grass roots of the Sinhala society.

    These are also the thoughts of a substantial cross-section of the General Public. Mr.Jawad has put it across well.

    Also,his line…..
    Opposing Lakshman Kadirgamers Prime Ministerial appointment despite all his efforts in proscribing the LTTE internationally was the restricted,warped ultra-nationalist mindset…..
    Derailing Lakshman Kadirgamer from being a PM is bad enough.But having him bumped off throws light on that mindset!
    Quite recently,the PM in a speech in Parliament mentioned that the Assassination of LK was during the period of the Honeymoon of the Rajapakse regime and the LTTE. Both parties stood to gain!

    Sri Lanka needs and equal opportunities bill to ensure representation of minorities in State Sector institutions. Tamils are grossly under-represented in state sector due to corruption and nepotism and the lack of a culture of MERITOCRACY.

    Today sad to say, in the absence of clear policies for reconciliation, Yahapalanaya is a joke! Ayahapalanaya is the norm with corrupt and uneducated politicians enjoying impunity and impunity and massive privileges.

    Now Ranil wants to give MPs more perks and increase the staff of the uneducated and corrupt Diayawenna parliament members from 3 to 15!

    Reasonable Question !

    Expectations on Yahapalanaya are high, in my view the racial hype created by MARA/GORA and all others have definitely subsided. with the new Hate speech law coming this effort will be further strengthen.

    However the MARA and GORA clan are not too far away they are constantly present and their henchman are on the look out for any loop hole to resurrect their ideals and destabilize the country.

    Muslims are targeted in a different way, one of the latest trend is to create Fake FaceBook pages under muslim names and spread obscene and falls opinions detrimental to Muslim community.

    My question is if Wasim Thajudeen had no affair with Yasara which seems pretty clear now that Yasara and his family have confirmed there was no such thing.
    What was the reason for W. Thajudeen to be killed ? Is it because he was a talented Muslim Ruggerite ?

    I am glad we Sri Lankans were brave enough to kick out MARA corrupt rulers, Players like Fazil Marija are assets of Sri Lanka who has brought fame and honor to mother lanka. I hope in future every Sri Lankan will get equal opportunity to showcase their talents irrespective of race or religion.

    The data supports that Sinhala Buddhists are Racists, which the Enlightened Buddha did not teach. The data also supports the Earth Spinning on its axis and going around the Sun.

    Then Who taught racism to Sinhala “Buddhists”?

    19-YEAR-OLD GANG RAPE VICTIM TO RECEIVE 200 LASHES AND 6 MONTHS IN JAIL IN SAUDI ARABIA…

    http://www.mindxplore.org/2015/11/19-year-old-gang-rape-victim-to-receive.html

    A Saudi Arabian woman must be accompanied by a male guardian — typically relative — at all times in public. The rape victim violated this law by meeting a friend to retrieve a picture.

    A 19-year-old gang rape victim was sentenced to 200 lashes and to six months in jail for the crime of indecency and speaking to the press.

    By, The Clarion Project | h/t to Jennifer L. Kopp

    Saudi Arabia defended a controversial verdict sentencing a 19-year-old gang rape victim to 200 lashes and six months in jail. The Shi’ite Muslim woman had initially been sentenced to 90 lashes after being convicted of violating Saudi Arabia’s rigid Islamic Sharia law on segregation of the sexes.

    The decision handed down by the Saudi General Court more than doubled her sentence last week. The court also roughly doubled the prison sentences for the seven men convicted of raping her, Saudi media said.

    The upholding of a decision to punish the victim triggered international outcry.

    Canada said it would complain to Saudi authorities about the sentence, described as “barbaric”’ by Jose Verger, the Canadian minister responsible for the status of women.

    The New York based Human Rights Watch said the verdict “not only sends victims of sexual violence the message that they should not press charges, but in effect offers protection and impunity to the perpetrators.”

    While not directly criticizing the Saudi Arabia’s judiciary, U.S. State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said, “I think when you look at the crime and the fact that now the victim is punished, I think that causes a fair degree of surprise and astonishment. It is within the power of the Saudi government to take a look at the verdict and change it.”

    However, the Saudi judiciary stood by its decision. “The Ministry of Justice welcomes constructive criticism, away from emotions,” it said in a statement.

    The statement also said that the “charges were proven” against the woman for having been in a car with a strange male, and repeated criticism of her lawyer for talking “defiantly” about the judicial system, saying “it has shown ignorance.”

    The woman’s lawyer, Abdul Rahman al-Lahem, reached out to the media. The court has since banned him from further defending the woman, confiscating his license and summoning him to a disciplinary hearing later this month.

    The justice ministry implied the victim’s sentence was increased because she had spoken out to the press. “For whoever has an objection on verdicts issued, the system allows to appeal without resorting to the media,” said the statement carried on the official Saudi Press Agency.

    The rape took place in 2006. The victim said it occurred as she tried to retrieve her picture from a male high school student she used to know.

    While in a car with the student, two men got into the vehicle and drove them to a secluded area. She said she was raped there by seven men, three of whom also attacked her friend.

    The case was referred back to the General Court by an appeals court last summer, after the woman’s lawyer contested the initial verdict, saying it was too lenient for the rapists and unjust for the victim.

    Editorial Footnote: It was just brought to my attention that the male friend of the female in this occurrence was also raped and he received the same punishment as she did.

      “Will the world end up having only the ISIS and Sri Lankan Buddhist?”

      They both are funded by the West, Saudi Arabia, the Gulf and the Western Europeans.

      It will take the Russians to clean the world from Both ISIS and Sinhala Buddhism
      version based on Mahawansa and the ISIS version baded on Wahhabism.

    Sikhs yes, no sane minded Westerner or for that matter any other non Muslim is going to entrust national security to a Muslim and Muslim states are far more backward. Sikhs don’t like Muslims and Canada entrusted the right man. In Europe it is illegal to scream prayers on loud speakers, an approach which SL needs to take in it’s path of modernization, Europe will pay the price in future for mass mulslim migrations, remember Paris. Whilst, ‘unclean’ to eat, the swine breeds large.

    Those in power in India are ‘high’ ‘caste’, hence they appoint ‘low castes’, Dravidians, Muslims and other minorities to the post of president, on the other hand ‘low castes’ have become ‘high castes’ in SL and hence they are unable to exercise that character. Also in Hindustan low cates became muslims and most SL muslims are of that descent, look and speak that language. If not for the Europeans SL would have been a muslim country similar to the former Buddhist countries throughout Asia.

    Javed’s idea to divide and rule the Sinhalese is a fine one, that is if the Sinhalese desire to go backwards and uphold primitive ideologies. Nevertheless, we see this muslim agenda which javed has now spilled out. She should use the rights given by our state to address women’s issues in Muslim states, start with the Mecca land, where the women are second class, abused, mutilated, barbarically killed and a primitive law is held devine.

    It is foolish to compare the appointment of a Sikh as Defense Minister in Canada, because the Sikhs are not asking for a “separate nation” for the Sikhs. Why the late Mr. Kadirgama was not appointed Prime Minister was exactly because the LTTR thug would have got him sooner. You conveniently forget the former IGPs, Army Commanders etc who were Tamils in Sri Lanka. People, once this business of “separation” is no longer bandied like rotten dried fish, all Sri Lankans will be happy to vote for a Tamil President and Prime Minister, exactly like in Canada where most of the Prime Ministers are Francophone. Check THAT out.
