Woe The Ides Of March Approaches In Geneva!

By Kumar David

Prof. Kuma David

The next session of the United Nations Human Rights Council will run from 22 February to 23 March in Geneva – the dreaded Ides of March (15 March) beckons. The Ides, the 74-th day in the Roman calendar, is set apart for settling debts. Will the regime in Colombo settle the debt it has evaded for a decade? It will not, it cannot! It is bound hand and foot to saffron robe and native pride. Nobody knows as yet what contrivance the military-stuffed Gotabaya regime (Executive) and the allied Mahinda government (Parliament and Cabinet) will try in a survival bid; and it is possible tension between the two wings of state may surfaces. To believe domestic and international reports Lanka’s reckoning in Geneva will be grim. The home scene is a failing economy, an out of control pandemic, back and forth confusion about the East Container Terminal and the rupee in free-fall as debt default looms.   

UN Human Rights Commissioner Michelle Bachelet in a damning annual report says: “I urge the international community to listen to the determined, courageous, persistent calls of victims and their families for justice, and heed the early warning signs of more violations to come. Given the demonstrated inability and unwillingness of the Government to advance accountability at the national level, it is time for international action to ensure justice for international crimes. States should pursue investigations and prosecution in their national courts – under accepted principles of extraterritorial or universal jurisdiction – of international crimes committed by all parties in Sri Lanka. States can consider targeted sanctions, such as asset freezes and travel bans against credibly alleged perpetrators of grave human rights violations and abuses. The failure to do so carries with it the seeds of repeated patterns of human rights violations and potential conflict in the future.”

But I am cynical. The regime will not mind a condemnatory resolution so long as many countries vote against the resolution. With Chinese and Russian patronage Lanka’s regime is assured of that. What would jolt the regime is sanctions, but that won’t happen. The world will be entertained to verbal theatrics, a petit drama, and at worst a rap on the knuckles. Sinhala-Buddhism, Lanka’s most feared force will not permit stepping back from the ‘glorious war victory’ motto, nor permit disapproval of ‘our heroic military’. Any government that dares to abandon this hagiography will be wrecked. Regime mouthpiece Pathfinder Foundation predicts: “Lanka will be defiant in the face a condemnatory vote in the Council. If the resolution is adopted most likely it will ignore it and pitch bilateral ‘economic tents’ with countries that vote in its favour.” This is code for China though paradoxically the US, EU and India account for 71% of our exports!

Public opinion in the West and India will not buy the regime’s myths and Beijing will toy with Colombo with strategic motives. The country is bankrupt; payment of an annual average $ 4 billion to service a $60 billion foreign debt is unsustainable except by incurring additional and increasing debt to service current debt. Covid has impoverished Lanka which was tottering in any case. From about 3000 cases four months ago the number covid cases have reached 60,000 and increasing at about 700 a day – mercifully the death toll is below 300. Every one of these fears will have to be interwoven into the ploy the regime opts for in Geneva on the Ides of March. From this perspective the government is on its knees and but for the sustenance of its Chinese paymaster would be grovelling. There are signs that portions of the Nandasena cabal are crumbling. Foreign Secretary Colombage spoke to the Island (2 Feb) approvingly of a “Consensual Resolution” as opposed to a Joint Resolution. Oh crikey, Lanka’s courts will soon be flummoxed by the need to make a distinction between joint sex and consensual sex!

The Rajapaksa regime formally withdrew from a commitment to the Yahapalanaya cosponsored UNHRC resolutions 30/1, 34/1 & 40/1 on Accountability and Reconciliation. To distract attention, in the wake of Easter Sunday attacks and the covid pandemic, it unashamedly propagated anti-Muslim canards raising anxieties in human rights circles. Frustrated, the Human Rights Commissioner issued the damning report that I just quoted, urging all countries to take action including punitive measures, invocation of international jurisdiction, referral to the International Criminal Court (ICC), sanctions against targeted individuals, asset freezes and travel bans.

This obligated disorderly Tamil leaders to come together requesting the UNHRC to refer Accountability concerns back to UN General Assembly and asking the Security Council to explore other avenues including referral to the ICC and inquire into genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity. In a sign of the times the moderate TNA, radical Wigenswaran and militant Gajendrakumar managed a joint statement not very different from Commissioner Bachelet’s rebukes.  In light of this the Global Tamil Forum (GTF) and the Canadian Tamil Congress (CTC) hosted a webinar on the 23rd Jan facilitating dialogue amongst Tamil representatives of the North-East, Upcountry and Muslims, to initiate a search for a common programme around which all of them, and this is important, progressive Sinhalese, can rally.

The withering rebuke from Commissioner Bachelet heightened expectation in these communities and the diaspora of a tough resolution and swift international action. They are now muscling capacity to get together experts with experience in international institutions and lobbying to extract the most out of the UNHRC. The next steps are challenging and replete with possibilities, difficulties and limitations. Domestic and diaspora clusters reckon coordinated advocacy by Tamils, Muslims and progressive Sinhalese can push global powers to compel Lanka’s authoritarian Executive to implement policies of Accountability and Reconciliation. As I said before, personally however, I am pessimistic of the outcome and cynical about the regime.

The question is how tough should Geneva get to be helpful for Sri Lankan democracy? A simple rap on the knuckles will be counterproductive and gentle sermons achieve nothing on accountability, reconciliation or democratisation. For a decade the UNHRC played the softly-softly game and achieved nothing. The Nandesana regime is indebted to its powerbase of testosterone fired monks, hell-bent nationalists, grumpy generals, killer corporals, and vicious (vice?) admirals of an eleven tug boat navy (who preen in the glory of Zheng He and Horatio Nelson). To survive it must hold firm to this base. I still conjecture that as persons neither Mahinda nor Gota are racists, but those to whom they are indebted to remain in power call the shots. Another wildcard is how the Burmese coup may play out in the debate on Lanka. China will be gratified by the ouster of namby-pamby Aung San and the return of a dictatorship which will nestle in its pocket. The US, India and Japan will calculate the odds between driving the regimes in Naypyidaw and Colombo deeper into a Chinese cuddle versus crushing them with a tougher strategic equation. The gut nature of the Biden-Team is intrinsic hostility to gorillas, Burmese or other, and endorsement of Commissioner Bachelet’s fusillade on Sri Lankan governments past and present, but calculations of global power-play will be more significant.  

Global human rights movements must play hardball and bring both these regimes to their knees. With the popularity of the regimes crumbling they are half way down already. Human rights movements must get tough or back-off and stop pretending they have any mileage in correcting violations in country’s possessed by the demons of die-hard racism or hard-core religious extremism. As in the past, mere censure in Geneva will be exploited by Lanka’s regime to stoke Sinhala-Buddhist extremism, its survival bedrock. Just when the Gota Presidency buggered the independence of institutions designed to check executive power and assist the rule of law, a constitutional amendment gave the president a JR-esque status. Retired kaki types some implicated in human rights concerns have been put in key positions. Two dozen military folk have been elevated to ministry secretaries and corporate bosses. The worst slap in the face for human rights was appointment of Kamal Gunaratne as Secretary Defence and Sarath Weerasekara to oversee police and civil security and screw up devolution; both are extreme Sinhala nationalists. Gotha has appointed military jackboots to direct covid control in all districts. Surveillance and harassment of civil society activists by intelligence agencies, oversight of NGOs, restrictions on foreign funding and harassment, is on the rise. 

One of Gota’s Commissions recommend impunity for state sponsored murders of journalists, students and political opponents. Another was commissioned on 31 Jan to finger politicians and ‘disloyal’ former public servants who could lose their civic rights. In the interim Harin Fernando has been promised a canine funeral! It is not the job of the UNHRC to pull Lanka out of this self-made hell-hole though any assistance in melioration is welcome. Clearly Nandasena Gotabaya has made up his mind to impose a one-party regime on one of Asia’s oldest democracies and that should concern the UNHRC.

    Thanks, Professor Kumar for the realistic pessimism. Yes, all the actors know just how bad the play has been, but we sense that all that makes little difference.
    .
    More than anybody else, Michelle Bachelet knows what military pigs are like. Seen her father tortured to death, a specialist Medical Doctor herself, has undergone some military training, taken to politics and been elected President of Chile twice. I’m not posting her Wikipedia entry again.
    .
    But it’s all of no use. The fact is that this is a government that was duly elected by our people – at two elections. Gota elected in August 2019, his henchman (including a conviceted murderer) elected in November 2020. Sinhala-Buddhists, so easily roused through a communalist call, actually voted for them. That is without question. So, we will all suffer.
    .
    At least now let our people understand what we have done to ourselves.

        Are you in favour of economic sanctions?
        Do you have grandchildren?
        Punishing all to punish a few may be the method adopted by God and America. I could never bring myself to agree to that however criminal are the criminals.
        Most importantly how are you going to filter out the Sinhala Buddhists?

          What is the alternative to a racist dumb president supported by a racist dumb minority (6.9 Million 42%) and opposed by a majority (9.4 Million 58% > 50%)? Would you like to ruin this island with a dumber and his dumbest supporters in charge of all key positions?

          Tell me why does the prominent war criminal Kamal walks on red carpet? Is he the government/state official spoke person? Don’t you think it is appropriate for a dumb ass to comment/admonish every aspect of state/government policies especially towards non sinhala/Buddhist people and their life?

            You are of the same mentality as Secretary of State Madeliene Albright who said “price is worth it ” referred to the reported deaths of nearly half a million Iraqi children due to American sanctions.
            .
            How are going to filter out the Sinhala Buddhist children for targeting at the implementation stage?
            Americans had no problem as their children were on the other side of the globe.

            This is the problem with Tamil racist donkeys who live outside the country.

            I am now sure you were the chief advisor to Thalaivar.

          I disagree with your stand on many matters, but agree that encouraging sanctions on this country even covertly will be most cynical.
          What many hardly realize is that Sri Lanka will never be punished in the interest of the minorities or of democracy or human rights but in their name to serve other purposes.
          Had Sri Lanka danced to the tune of the US but killed half the Tamil population, it will be rewarded the way Israel is.

            SJ was probably living on/in parallel universe before, during and after the war. No one knows where actually. However further researches may reveal his actual whereabouts. For example I suggest you look at the following areas.

              Ones you have liberated Sinhalese from Sinhala/Buddhists and Buddhists from Sinhala/Buddhism he might consider returning back to the land where he was born and lost all rights and equal opportunities.

      It is public secret, that srilanken politicians through their henchmen in power today inflict riots on minorities.
      Outcome of particular riots are being used as evidence materials to international meetings. This is how their vicious cycles move forward on and on. Their focus is to paint the picture in favour of political survival within a country, while also gaining international aids but telling untruths to international community. This is like moving on a curve. That is why they dont pay genuine interests on bringing sustainable solutions to the minority issues. There are also so called senior men in active politics yet today, that would deny any solutions to the problems of the tamils and muslims. Perhaps so called buddhagama monks ( Thattamamala) would not expect marginalize the mnorities, but Rajapakshes and their politics would not care much about finding any solutions. Instead they would stay pleasing the thoughts and minds of growing exremists .. by sowing seeds based on superstition.

    Unless you want these repeated, the only solution is to split the island into 3 mono ethnic nations equitably Sinhala Only nation, Tamil Elam and Muslim Elam.

    Unfortunately Tamils and Muslims believe in fairy tales that things will change. No they will not. If they change it will be for the worse.

      The will be no Muslim or ISIS Islamic Eelam that will be only confined to the coastal Amparai belt with no other resources, falling pray to Islamic extremism from outside sources and will be another thorn in the region. South Asia has already too many Islamic basket cases. Pakistan, Bangladesh , Afghanistan and now you want to add another one to this. If you want an Islamic state 72% of the island’s Muslims live down south and as per you love the Sinhalese , therefore you can create this Muslim only state in places like Beruwela, Matara, Gampola , Maradana/Slave Island or Puttalam.

        Being a Muslim is a religious identity just like being a Buddhist, Christian or Hindu. It is not an ethnic identity. Sri Lankan Muslims or Moors as they love to call themselves are immigrant ethnic Tamils from South India , who converted to Islam a few centuries ago . A little bit of Arab amongst a few hundred families , does not make these families or the rest of the Sri Lankan Muslims Arabs or Moors. They are still by ethnicity Tamils who follow Islam. Now pathetically dressing up and behaving like Arabs to justify this fake ethnicity , also does not make them anything , else other than a laughing stock to the world. Ethnic Tamil Muslims now pathetically behaving like Arabs to prove that they are not Tamil. You have a different agenda. Under guise of Islamic or ISIS Eelam and a fake Muslim ethnicity to steal more Tamil lands for the Sinhalese , as you know this fake Islamic land cannot survive on its own.

          I have to repeat to you that religious identities have become ethnic identities in former Yugoslavia (Muslims), India (Sikhs) and China ( Hui).
          Zoroastrians now identified as Parsis are an important religion-based ethnic group. T
          The Serbs and Croats were one ethnic group that got divided into ethnic groups according to their Christian denominations. The separation of Muslims from Serbs happened later.

          If Lankan Muslims do not want to be part of any other identity that is their choice.

            If Muslims want to be different from Tamils, that’s fine.

            However, it cannot be reason for their any claim of territory or sovereignty.

            Muslims never raised any issues of discrimination, war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide including structural genocide, rape etc.

            They never migrated towards any particular demarcation of territory, even temporarily, even in the heights of State executed, supported or sponsored pogroms.

            Its is again Tamils who fled to various countries, and it is mostly wester countries that primarily tolerated with despise and not welcomed or accepted.

            As a matter of fact, Muslims were in hand-in-hand with Sinhalese fighting the Tamils, even before the expulsion of Muslims by LTTE.

            Yes some Muslims would have preferred to at the least not taking sides, and vast majority supported siding with Sinhalese.

            So even by contemporary history, the Muslims do not have claim for territory or sovereignty.

            Basically, a claim (be it any claim) cannot arise just because a particular group of people want identify themselves separately from a primary group without whether it is by history and/or cause and effect.

            Eezham Tamils have both and the struggle that Eezham Tamils still wage, even after loosing about 1 million population by essentially genocidal intention and acts of Sinhala State is living proof.

                Genocide accumulatively reduces population and all other human activity of affected population and this is why I say 1 million (which is about the population if second generation is counted).

                Other part is self explanatory.

                History, struggle and all attempts of Eezham Tamils to make the most accommodation (which means least to Eezham Tamils) with Sinhalese.

                I know you did not like what I said about ICG, which incidentally say the same about Eezham Tamils as you.

              Further they only arrived here from South India as immigrants and refugees and never had a history of a homeland or ruling . They migrated from the Tamil areas of South India and settled amongst the Sinhalese and Tamils . 72% settled amongst the Sinhalese and 28% amongst the Tamils. They only arrived in the Tamil east as refugees fleeing Portuguese and later Sinhalese persecution. They were settled there by King Senarath and the Tamil Vannimai chiefs of the east as they were ethnic Tamils , who had no where else to go. They were given land to settle and Hindu Tamil Mukkuva women to marry and start families. Now certain parties like this Gatam , Islam extremists and the Sinhalese racists are deliberately agitating them to claim separate state and ethnicity , just to muddy the waters , steal more Tamil lands and deny Tamils their justice. Strange 72% of them live amongst the Sinhalese who have openly discriminated them but there is no claim for an Islamic homeland in the Sinhalese areas but only in the Tamil areas where they share a common language , ethnicity and heritage with the Tamils. People like Gatam, the Sri Lankan establishment and Islamic extremists are deliberately doing this , as they feel the Tamils are weak and powerless and any one can steal their land.

            Trying to be smart again are you without the fill facts. They can have a separate identity from the rest of the Tamils is they want to but this should be based on the truth and not on fiction or small doses of Arab ancestry , that only around 5% of their population the most may have. They are not Moors, a name incorrectly given to them by the Portuguese and this only denotes their religion and not to their racial or ethnic origin. They should be correctly called as Tamil Muslims. The Muslims of Bosnia do not call themselves Arabs or Turks , despite the fact, many of them may have some Arab or Turkish heritage but their correct origin as the Slavic Muslims of Bosnia not to some imagined Muslim ( a religious identity ) or ethnicity. The Sikhs are an ethno religious group only found amongst the Punjabi, therefor qualify to be a separate group. Being a Muslim or following Islam a world religion does not qualify you for some imagined ethnic origin. This religion is followed by many races and ethnicities and has many sects. The Sikhs still proudly identify themselves as Punjabis and have very close connection to the Hindu Punjabi families and intermarry into them. Previously it was the custom amongst Hindu Punjabi families to convert one of their sons to Sikhism.

              The Hui are ethnic Chinese Muslims and again correctly identify themselves as ethnic Chinese who converted to Islam not as Uighur , Turks or Arabs or anyone else. They follow Chinese Islamic customs not Turkish or Arabic customs , just like the way a generation ago the Muslims here were practicing and following their 1000 year old tolerant Tamil Sufi Islamic tradition that they brought from their original Indian homeland. This blended well with the Hindu/Buddhist culture of the island. Not this intolerant forms of Western Asian Islamic sects or Arabic , dress and culture that they are now aping . If they want to be Arabs they can migrate to the Gulf and not claim other people’s homeland , where they arrived as refugees a few hundred years ago, Moreover despite being ethnically Tamil , they were hand in glove with the Sinhalese in committing genocide and war crimes against their fellow non Muslim Tamils. This is why the LTTE went against them. Yo seem to you have conveniently forgotten this .. Self hating Tamil and a constant apologist for Sinhalese racism and Islamic extremism

                  Only person clutching at straws is you. You thing you are some sort of all knowing superior intellect and keep on nit picking on the Tamil bloggers here but fawn to all the Sinhalese racists and Islamic opportunists. However you know next to nothing and end up looking like a fool. Sikhism is classified as an Indian religion and not as an ethnic group . They are of Punjabi ethnicity and are not regarded as a different ethnic group. Most Pakistanis are of Punjabi ethnicity. 60% . You get Punjabi Muslims , Punjabiu Hindus , Punjabi Sikhs and in and around the Sialkot area of Pakistan you get Punjabi Christians too. Bosnian Muslims may be identified as a separate ethnic group so are the Hui but they are correctly are4 correctly identified as Southern Slavic Muslims and belonging to the same Southern Slavic ethnic stock as the Serbs and Croats. The vast majority of them are Serbs who got converted to Islam during the Ottoman Turkish rule and they acknowledge this truth unlike the Sri Lankan Muslims who keep on denying their actual Indian Tamil immigrant origin and pathetically cling onto some imagined Arab origin that they hardly have. The same with the Hui . They acknowledge their Han Chinses ethnic origin. The difference from the other Chinese is due to their Islamic practices and not eating Pork , that all other Chinese love

                    Further the Sri Lankan Muslims or Moors justification to claim a different ethnicity from the rest of the Tamils in the island ( (Indian origin and Sri Lankan) was not their religion as the Muslims from Tamil Nadu , from whom these so called Sri Lankan Moors have descended , identify themselves as Tamils with Islam as their religion. Their primary identity is Tamil. However their descendants and close relatives who jumped the sea and migrated into the island a few centuries ago , ceased to be Tamil and miraculously became Moors or Arabs . May be this sea jump or sea change did something to their DNA Their justification for a separate ethnicity was that they are not Tamils but descended from or partly descended from Arab traders. DNA and everything else about them has now proved this so called Arab or partial Arab descent is a big lies and myth and if there is one , it is only found amongst a few hundred families and that too a very distant male Arab or two ancestor , whilst the rest of the ancestors are all Tamils. As for the rest of the 95-99% so called Sri Lankan Muslims are all purely descended from largely low caste Hindu Tamil converts. This so called Arab origin claim only started around the late 1800s .

                      First encouraged by the British and later by the Sinhalese to divide and rule the Tamils. All this lies was only for perceived economic benefits and for power and also to the fact that 72% of the island’s Muslims live amongst the Sinhalese , therefore did not want to be closely associated with the island’s Tamils to escape persecution and discrimination at their hands so claimed this Arab origin myth and desperately clung to the incorrect name ” Moor” that the Portuguese gave them . This only related to their faith and not to their origin. Gradually this myth grew, encouraged first by the British and later by the Sinhalese , just like the Sinhalese Aryan myth , the Sri Lankan Muslim Arab/Moor myth. Now self serving Tamils like this SJ are also joining this band wagon to create mischie to divide and rule the Tamils. It is in their interest that the real truth does not come out , so come up with all these silly examples that has nothing to with the Sri Lankan Muslims and their fake Arab origin and Moor ethnicity.

                  Those are your definitions. Sadly, unlike Rohan 25, none of them have even a straw to savage you in that. You can baffle for years, but neither Lankan Muslims nor Lankan Buddists’ current theories are about ethnicity. For example in India, there is a difference between Sikhs and “Muslims, Hindus, Christians”. Sikhs like be as different race because they are only Punjabies, no other significant race in them. Pakistan Punjabies are only Muslims. Indian Punjabies mainly Hindus and Sikhs. Islamic religion is not requesting many thing Muslims are doing, Ex Beard, Burqua… But a Sikh man must wear turban, carry knife, has to have beard and long hair bundled on head. There is rule they should not marry any Muslims. Basically Sikhs are preserving their 500 years ago Punjabi race. But Muslims are opposite on that, they quickly marry anybody and convert to Islam and thus invalidate their ethnicity claim. World Muslims specifically say that they are not about ethnicity, they about only religion. Lankawe Buddhism is only for Sinhalese ( by Language) & Lankawe Islam is only for those who follow Arabian culture. Sinhala Researchers are putting forward theories that they are of Lion Origin, Aryan Origin, Bengali Origin, Yaka Origin and eve 125,000 Balangoda Origin. Muslim only followed this. So Muslims claim Islam Originated in Lankawe not in Arabia. Then why follow Arabia only in culture?

                  Yes Thullukans are very selective and change their ethnicity when it suits them. When they seek asylum in the west they claim to be Thamizh fleeing Chingkalla persecution , as they know on one will want them if they state they are Islamic Moors. However in the Arabian Gulf or in Islamic nations they are not Tjhamizh but Muslim Moor/Arab . When they fled South India and came to this island and settled along the then Thamizh north west coast , they claimed to be Thamizh , even when they fled to the east of the island as refugees , they claimed to be Thamizh and even married Thamizh Hindu women. Later after independence to please the Chingkallams and before that to the British they were not Thamizh but Arab or Moor thinking this will benefit them. During the 30 year war they sided with the Chingkallams in the name of Islam and being Arab and immensely benefitted at the expense of the Thamizh,. Now that the Chingkallams have no use for them and have started to persecute them they have become Thamizh again. This SJ must be a Thullukan,

      Gatam Rohan 25 and SJ . The Sri Lankan Muslims belong to the greater Tamil nation in the island. Which comprises of three people the native indigenous Eelam Tamils , the Indian origin Malayka Tamil and the Muslim Tamils or Sri Lankan Moors. If they want to they have a right to have their own identity but like many others stated the identity should be based on truth and their real origin and heritage and not based on small amounts of other origins , that we all have. The North and East may be the ancient homeland of the Eelam Tamils but now it is the homeland of every Tamil speaker and all three Tamil people in the island. This is where they will ultimately find a sage haven . The Eelam Tamil , the Malayaka Tamil and the Muslim Tamil or Moor. Within this area each Tamil community can retain their own specific culture and religion. They are the greater Tamil community and should now learn to fight together to demand justice for all Tamils not individual sections or groups within this community. If we fight together as the greater Tamil people we will all succeed and the rights and the unique heritage of each Tamil community that is unique to them can be preserved within this greater Tamil community. However if we are divided and fight against each other , just like the Sinhalese want , we will all be destroyed.

Unfortunately, internal scientists have no solution because they themselves are infected and under the influence of drugs and external scientists do not want to have a solution.
    Over the seven decades we achieved:
    Number of ethnic violence (Riots, genocide) which took thousands of lives, thousands became disable and destruction of resources.

    Number of extremist and State terrorist wars which took thousands of lives, thousands became disable and destruction of resources.

    Natural destructions (Ptsunami, floods, Malaria, Cholera, Corona etc)
    Now, Fundamentalism, Racism, Corruption, Drugs take control of everything,

      You said “Sri Lanka is now a muddy playground for Internal and external players”.
      *
      That may explain why all players, without exception, are playing dirty.

          Thanks. But you recognize only two to be rotten because you do not look hard enough.
          Every little playing dirty affects all of us as it is all interconnected.

      “Tamil side is wining.”

      It’s high time you started a riot.
      Kamal is itching for war without an enemy.
      Clan is desperately in need of new streams of unearned income.
      No new large contracts in the pipeline.

      As usual when in need start a riot.
      SJ will provide you with justification by blaming SJV Chelvanayakam, A Amirthalingam, ……….

      Please let me know the time and place where your saffron lead thug intents to auspiciously to start the riot of the decade.

    The Rajapaksa’s brought this on themselves, they have no one else to blame, although they keep trying hard to do so. We are not in a position to throw our little weight around and show our national arrogance, we have to keep going to all these countries with the begging bowl for aid and loans and pretend to be humble. The solution is simple – BE ACCOUNTABLE, AND COMPLY WITH INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS THAT WANT TO HELP THOUSANDS OF FAMILIES FIND THEIR LOVED ONES, AND GET CLOSURE. Until the Rajapaksa’s allow investigations, answer questions, and apologize if necessary, this black mark will always be over our heads.

    Leave UNHRC to one side and there is something appears to be very wrong with Mr.Modi. MR says India is our closest friend and that is why we have allowed to China to come very close to you such as Nainathivu by granting tenders to build Electricty Power plants . Modi accepts MRs words ( Ignoring the Finance Ministers feelings who is Tamil from Madurai ) and sends him Greetings for the atrocities he has commited for the last 73 years against Tamils and Muslims.
    If it was the Iron lady Mrs. Ghandi or the late heir apparent Sanjay would have brought SL under her military control by now . Wake up Mr.Modi before it is too late. ECT gone Ninathivu gone what next.

    Comrade David
    The following countries are listed as members of the UNHRC:
    Bolivia, China, Côte d’Ivoire, Cuba, France, Gabon, Malawi, Mexico, Nepal, Pakistan,
    Russian Federation, Senegal, Ukraine, United Kingdom and Uzbekistan.
    *
    I wonder what Cuba’s take is in the matter, and how you would explain it.
    Will Bolivia that only months ago electorally reversed a US-sponsored coup think differently?

      “Will Bolivia that only months ago electorally reversed a US-sponsored coup think differently?”

      The biggest coup in this island is that an American Citizen was facilitated by USA to be democratically elected as the all powerful Sinhala/Buddhist (Duce) single handed, fascist president of this island.

      There are many things one ought to worry about this island. Gota continues to militarise every aspect of people’s life.

      Island (8 February 2021) reported with photograph that Sarath Weerasekera intent to set up Public Security Committees in every village. As a first step he had didtributed SIM cards to each member.

      Well you would love him for his initiatives to build a police state.

    Alas! Prof. Kum is saying in other words what I believe what the future for the Pearl of the Indian Ocean would be. A Hermit State. One Party? Can be. That was what it looked like in early 1970’s and even JRJ at that time was thinking of “supporting the Government”. But that was not to be, and the same JRJ became the executive if not the executioneering President of Sri Lanka. With the loss of the ECT and power projects in the North, the talks with Karuna Amman and Pillayan indicates that India is forming another “Mukthi Bahini” for Sri Lanka. Another “30-year” protracted war in the North and East and an Indian Peace Keeping Force to use the comely lasses of the area as their consumables. Remember this “struggle” this time is likely to spread into India. The Indian reaction based on conjecture will result in Tamil speaking Chinese moles hired from the North entering India. India did form a “Mukthi Bahini” the LTTE, in the past. Then its competitor too can form several “Mukthi Bahini’s” for all the ethnic divisions in India, including the ones in Nagaland now. Everyone must look sharp.

    Sanctions on the ruling class by the international community are the need of the hour. Especially with the freeing all overseas assets.

    The yearly kawadi carnival is a long-anticipated ritual of the Tamil polity. It is a lovely show while it lasts. at the end of the show, the organizers of the show (UN) and the dancers and the comedians (The Tamiz polity) achieve nothing and are left with the wistful looking for the next year’s dance.

    Why worry? Our President is “SINHALA BUDDHIST” and “HE” is doing everything in “MY WAY”. This “HE” will tell UNHRC at the next session. After that “Saba Thomo Sathutin Visira Giyaya” (The meeting ended in a Happy Note). Jayaweva Sri Lanka!

    Won’t happen! Aside from the US Biden-Harris-Kerry wanting to overturn the China takeover of the region, Tamil bosses in the west are now scratching their heads in worry wondering how they are going to transfer Western wealth and assets to the newly created 1/3rd. There goes the Tiger-pup partying in the West, such that they never had, and will never have again, in Eelam.

      On top of that, they might just lose their refugee status in the West and have to leave permanently for Eelam.

          old codger, don’t pay attention to Ramona Therese Fernando grandmother. This idiot lives in the USA with her family and writes a whole load of garbage. Long ago, I wrote the Rajapaksas stole 21 Billion dollars (US), and this dingbat thought 21 Billion = 21 Million dollars. That’s how dumb she is.

    There has to be strict sanctions against these extremist sinhala buddhists, travel bans for them/their families/their cronies, freeze stolen funds that have been stashed away in foreign countries. Freeze of foreign aid to the extremist beggar buddhist government. The international community should adopt a ‘no mercy’ approach with these extremist sinhala buddhists.

    Dear Prof

    Disagree with all what you said without nay party affiliatons

    Correction…..”moderate TNA, radical Wigenswaran and militant Gajendrakumar managed a joint statement” giving the list of crimes by FP/TULF from 1970-1977-1981 a Ratha Pottu Mafia killing Fields a Tamil crime against Tamils first then we proceed to all else including the UN crimes against humanity.

    I am sure you may agree everything has to be done in a logical order for maximum justice…one for all and all for one justice correct?

    Now please answer me who has given you the right to skip crimes and focus on something of your personal interest??????
