An INTERPOL wanted notice has been issued against a Sri Lankan Tamil named Vadivel Mahendran at the behest of Switzerland Police authorities

Swiss Police in Basel have issued the arrest warrant for Vadivel Mahendran whose nom de guerre is”Santhiveli Maamaa”(Uncle from Santhiveli)

He is wanted for “Crimes against Life & health” says the Interpol notice. Mahendran is suspected of torturing&murdering a Swiss Tamil couple

Mahendran was born in Trincomalee on 15-11-1956. Interpol notice says he speaks English & Sinhala but does not mention his mother tongue Tamil

Mahendran entered Tamil militancy by joining Peoples Liberation Organization of Tamil Eelam(PLOTE) in 1983 after the July anti-Tamil pogrom

He earned the nom de guerre”santhiveli Maamaa”as he was then living in Santhiveli village in easern Batticaloa district.Maamaa means uncle

Santhiveli Maamaa broke away from the PLOTE with “Paranthan Rajan” &formed the Eelam National Democratic Liberation Front (ENDLF)in 1987

The ENDLF collaborated with the Indian Army in the war against LTTE. Santhiveli Maamaa was responsible for many human rights violations then

He fled Sri Lanka when the Indian Army withdrew in 1990&sought refuge in Switzerland.After being wanted as a murder suspect escaped to India

When Vinayagamoorthy Muraleetharan alias”Col Karuna” split from the LTTE in 2004,”Maamaa”residing in India helped him to reach safety there

When the Tamil Makkal Viduthalai Puligal(TMVP) formed by Karuna tied up with the ENDLF,Santhiveli Maamaa returned to east&combatted the LTTE

When the ENDLF -TMVP alliance broke down Santhiveli Maamaa opted to remain with the Karuna led TMVP instead of returning to India with ENDLF

He remained in Sri Lanka adopting a low profile while functioning as a Karuna loyalist. Recently he was seen together with Karuna in photos

It is felt that the photos may have made Swiss police to get an Interpol notice against Mahendran who was on the Swiss wanted list for years

INTERPOL will seek assistance of Sri Lankan Police to apprehend Vadivel Mahendran alias Santhiveli Maamaa &extradite him to Switzerland

Mahendran was also called “PLO”Maamaa in as he had obtained military training from the Peoples Liberation Organization in the middle east

Meanwhile the TMVP has issued a statement denying that Vadivel Mahendran alias Santhiveli Maamaa is a member of their organization

  1. This is on the Articles on Balraj. If one forgets that he was fighting for LTTE, one can really appreciate his strategies. If the separatism didn’t happen he would have been a Brigadier or higher in the Sri Lanka Army. Like all communities both Sinhalese and Tamils have had and has many brilliant people with strategic minds and thinking. Newsweek once said even if VP was not a terrorist the world would have feared him as a fearless business leader.
    Premadasa, Mahaththaya & Ranil really believed that the issues can be resolved by talking for the ordinary people of both sides and risked their political lives or got killed,. Ranjan Wijeratne, Athulathmudali, Balraj, Karuna or Janaka Perera wanted to solve it militarily to fulfill their military or leadership obligations to the country. Except for Karuna all paid by their lives for their commitment. VP and LTTE higher ups wanted the conflict to continue and Mr. Rakapakse realized there is no way he could win a second term except by defeating LTTE. To me selfish objectives of two individuals VP & MR was pitted against one another and one persisted.
    Many Sinhalese and Tamils lives their lives working for visionaries like Mr. Ghanam (St. Anthony’s Group), Selvanathans of Carsons and Dammika Perera or Harry J of Stassen group. If Balraj was in SLA he would have led many in all races. If VP was a businessman he would have been better than Ambhanis and who knows better than Bill Gates.
    It is unfortunate that Tamils with 200 odd million world population do not have a country to call their own. It is equally unfortunate that separatists looked for the ‘ealam’ in Sri Lanka out of all the places. It is also unfortunate that Bandaranaike who was a capitalist created SLFP and there were two Sinhala dominated (opportunistic) political parties rather than parties based ideologies (like Democrats and Conservatives, UNP (Pre SWRD departure and LSSP/CP). If these race based politics didn’t take place SWRD/Chelva pact or Dudley/Chelva pact would have worked. If then VPs and Balrajs would have lived in Sri Lanka and become successful people rather than aiming guns at each other and been scattered all over the world.
    I remember the pre 83 times when I spent the night at my good friend Srikantha’s place in Wattala. Those were the times a name didn’t bring the race of a person to our minds. We have paid a hefty price for the sins of our forefathers. I wish one day we will stop seeing all Tamils as separatists of terrorists and Tamils will stop seeing all of us as Tamil haters or war criminals. Ordinary Tamils and Sinhalese will continue to live as friends and neighbors. The extremists in both sides and the game players in geo political and regional politics will continue to rouse hatred and disharmony. According to the religions that believe in reincarnation the body we live in is not ‘us’ and we will be born as a Tamil, Sinhalese, Spanish, or French in the subsequent births. We are only fighting real and cyber wars for a temporary label. Let’s hope that the day we see through this will dawn sooner than later.

  2. This fellow mama is not a freedom fighter.He is an out and out criminal. I hope he gets what he deserves

  3. Karuna once fight for independent Tamileelam now speaking like Mahinda mouth piece aginst our Land rights and our people rights. All his goons tied up with him are criminals and shame for the Tamil socitey. Now any one can understand why they had taken action against this sex offender and Guilty culprit.

  4. Santhiveli Maamaa is a brave anti-LTTE fighter.Instead of staying safely in Bangalore he came over to Batti and fought the tigers with Karuna. The SL govt is greatful for the help he gave.They will never allow Interpol to take him to Swiss

  5. Pingback: Jaya talks with Menon on SL « UKTamilNews.com

  6. This guy is an evil man.He is staying in Batti now with Karunas protection. He does all the dirty work for Karuna. I dont think Karuna will let him be arrested

  7. Hi Santhiveli Maamaa,

    Good times are just about to come your way. Hope your cynide pill has not expired.

    Proud Sri Lankans will look after you, if you spill some beans… about the countries and names of the TTD criminals who promoted Tamil terrorism in Sri Lanka.

  8. Is this the guy who murdered Robin master and wife in Swiss?
    Robin master is suspected to be the one who killed Umamaheswaran.

  9. BEAUTIFUL!!!

    This once again confirms to us that Tamil terrorism is coming back to haunt those who unleashed it in Sri Lanka.

    One by one… let’s vow to Eelamize these low lives…

    All kith and kin of Tamil terrorist diaspora (not the peace-loving Sri Lankan Tamils) must die in tragic circumstances with lot of pain… for the violence they funded in Sri Lanka, for NO FAULT OF SRI LANKANS… BUT TO MAKE PROFIT IN U.S.DOLLARS.

    Man… what a great time in history we are living.

    Pay the price Maamaa…. pay the price.

  10. [http://print.dailymirror.lk/news/front-page-news/46455.html]

    ha ha ha…

    They should have screamed ‘genocide’, ‘genocide’ one more time, louder, in front of 10 Downing Street, and the Britsh would have believed them.

    So sad…

  11. THESE PEOPLE ARE DIVILS. WHAT THEY HAVE DONE IN THE NAME OF TAMILEELAM? THEY HAVE KILLED THE TAMIL PEOPLE AND DISTROYED THE TAMIL COMMUNITY IN THEIR OWN SOIL.

    ALL THE CRIMINALS SHOULD GET APPROPRIATE SENTENCESES FOR THEIR PAST ACTIVITIES.

    THE TIME HAS COME.

  12. DBSJ whats your take on the sanctions call by Jayalalitha? I think this shows the lack of knowledge of the tN politicians or the crafty nature of them. If India impose sanctions they will not be able to exports Tata lorries, Tata Cars, Bajaj scooters, Jetairways, Airtel etc. The Ordinary Sri Lankans will also recipocate by boycotting Indian products even if they get through (like in 1988). Even now Munchee, and Dankotuwa pocelain cannot get their goods to India as Indian business people are bribing the customs to delay and block SL exports. There could be few agricultral products that may get affcted. China would love this as they can get their brands established although its a small market size. All in all I cant think of a way SL will be affacted. Also the things that can be only imported from India, Sri Lankans may start producing or growing them. As I wrong or is the Hon. Cheif Minister thinks TN people are stupid or are they really studpid.

  13. Arundathi Roy said to BBC yesterday that, over 800 million Indian are living below US$ 20 cents income per day. Not a good news for us. We Sri Lankans have to learn to respect the Sri Lankan Tamil people now onwards. We have to forget all past deeds. Otherwise all SL Tamils will leave this country. Eventually another set of Indians will be imported when Ranil/Ravi come to power, this time as manual labor. Someday another “Babakaran” will show the imported Indian laborers, a dream of a promised land. And the LTTE story will be repeated.

  14. No this is not the guy who killed Robin. Robin was killed by one Dumal, and Dumal was subsequently killed in Vavuniya when a bomb expolded in a bicycle shed near Vauniya town.

  15. Abey,

    It takes two to Tango. Look at what the TTD coolies like TNA is doing today. Exactly what Amirthalingam and his band of traitors did in 1970s, falling at the feet the foreigners and complaining, lying and seeking something ‘special’ for Tamils only.

    Is this reasonable? How can the ‘Tamils’ distant others in our own land? Cannot they consider what you are suggesting? Forget the past and think like Sri Lankans and prosper etc.?

    You see, these TTD coolies aren’t interested in the welfare of “Tamils”. They have totally different agenda. GET RICH QUICK.

    Now here’s what I expect. Just like Injuns used Amirtha last time, this time also some foreign country, when getting bugged 1001 times, will THINK HARD on how to capitalize on the OPPORTUNITY THE TTD IS OFFERING.

    They will secretly allow training a new batch of Tamil terrorists, give a label, and as a starter, ask them to go kill a good number of our troops or kids… in a horrendous way, expecting unrest and communal riots.

    Can you rule that out?

    There we go. Once again, another ‘Tamil struggle’ has arrived, fresh out of oven.
    Refugee claimants will be happy; money is collected for Tamil terrorism; foreign hyenas start singing ‘no military solution’, new accounts are opened in Swiss banks… and so on.

    We are back to the square 1.

    This is the DAILY wish of these TTD and TNA coolies… Do they care for ‘Tamils”?

    THEY ARE WAITING VERY PATIENTLY FOR A FOREIGN SPONSOR, BECAUSE WITHOUT FOREIGN BACKING, THEY CANNOT DO ANYTHING. That’s why they DO NOT WANT TO TALK TO SRI LANKA’S LEADERS!

    This is how to create a problem that was not there in the first place.

    Let’s understand this agenda, update ourselves and protect ourselves. In international relations, there are no permanent friends or enemies… only permanent interests.

    Having studied the behavior, propaganda and agenda of Tamil Terrorist Diaspora for quite some time, my recommendation is go on the offensive, and be ready 24/7.

    The vulture… is a patient bird.

  16. “It takes two to Tango. Look at what the TTD coolies like TNA is doing today. Exactly what Amirthalingam and his band of traitors did in 1970s, falling at the feet the foreigners and complaining, lying and seeking something ‘special’ for Tamils only.”

    What a load of rubbish. Rajapaksa keeps talking about 13th+. Well, implement it now and be done with it instead of talking to the TNA ad infinitum. The only people lieing here are the Sri-Lankan government and the whole world has finally realised it.

    “They will secretly allow training a new batch of Tamil terrorists, give a label, and as a starter, ask them to go kill a good number of our troops or kids… in a horrendous way, expecting unrest and communal riots.”

    How many of “your” troops and kids were killed that led to the 1956 riots?

    You, and those that possess your half-a-brain are the cause of all of Sri-Lanka’s ills and if Sri-Lanka will ever be divided, the tamils will have morons such as yourself to thank.

  17. “for the violence they funded in Sri Lanka, for NO FAULT OF SRI LANKANS… ”

    1956, 1977, 1983 riots, no fault? 1981 burning of Jaffna library, no fault?

    “Man… what a great time in history we are living.”

    Indeed. This last week for Sri-Lanka and Rajapaksa have been a great time indeed.

  18. KLS You are making a few valid points that the great majority of the Srilankans who enjoy peace and harmony there, must take note of.

    TNA hasn’t changed at all.

    They never say anything about lifting living standards , providing housing, helping businesses and maintaining a peaceful envioronmemt in the North.

    They only ask “homelands” self rule, freehold titles and own Police force.

    There political strategy is to get rid of this Govt by hook or by crook.

    TTD is trying every which way to turn the English speaking West to back the TNA.

    UNP ,the natural ally of the English speaking West being in turmoil at present is a god send to Srilankans, to preserve their current freedopm and progress towards prosperity.

    JVP the spoil sports have lost their teeth,which is another blessing.

    TTD and TNA would love to have a anothere 83 for sure, but for three different reasons,

    TTD members who still have their kith and kin can get a chance to bring them over.

    TTD who don’t have anyone there can build their holiday homes on their Eelaam.

    The UNP can get into power if the Rajapaksas are killed. or imprisoned by the Western invasion army like in Libiya.

    And guess what , they already have an Ace like Fonseka, with his band of ex Army followers with proper military skills, unlike the rag tag rebels and mercenaries in Libiya.

    You are absolutely correct that the great majority of Srilankans must be on alert 24/7 if they are to build on the current platform and move forward to become a prosperous and free Nation .

  19. “They never say anything about lifting living standards , providing housing, helping businesses and maintaining a peaceful envioronmemt in the North. They only ask “homelands” self rule, freehold titles and own Police force”

    The TNA have continuously asked for the following:
    1. Removal of the emergency regulations.
    2. List of names of all the detainees in camps to be provided to their families.
    3. Removal of military rule in North East.

    The government hasn’t done any of it. So stop the lies about the TNA not trying to improve the living standards of the people of the North or trying to build a peaceful environment. Besides, the TNA are the elected representatives of the people – why would people elect them if they did not feel it was to their benefit?

  20. “As I wrong or is the Hon. Cheif Minister thinks TN people are stupid or are they really studpid.”

    Actually, it is you who are stupid. Sanctions don’t only have to be economic, moreover, when a large, regionally powerful country applies them, they use covert ways of making sure that the country that it gets imposed on suffers one way or another. The US imposed sanctions on a number of countries, do you think they just imposed them and stood back and watched and if the country was not affected, they said, “oh well”, and just walked away? If you thought that way, then you are indeed stupid.

  21. 600 un armed Police men were handed over to Prabakaran on a plate by the Sinhala rulers of Srilanka exactly 21 years ago.,to be slaughtered with their hands tied at the back.

    Switzerland or any other country in the West didn’t raise an eyebrow.

    Next 20 yeras the same West allowed the merry killings to go on with the money collected by the Tiger agents on their own turf.

    They gave asylum to hundreds, if not thousands of LTTE supporters, and even cadres who were involved in crime aginst Sinhalese people..

    Even to date they are trying to lynch the present leaders, who saved the Srilankans from death and destruction that went on for 30 years.

    Now Switzerlans wants ” Maama” to be handed over to them by the Srilankan Govt.

    This guy hasn’t done anything to Srilankans. Has he?

    He hasn’t killed any innocent civilians like women and children?

    He hasn’t sent suicide bombers to the South to blow up anything.

    Indian wouldn’t have allowed his to stay there if he is wanted for crime.

    Obviously the Diaspora who backed the LTTE must have an axe to grind against this guy for putting the spanner in their works.

    Srilanka doesn’t have to do anything because he has done nothing against Srilanka.

  22. Interpol is a comedy. Interpol issued many such notices but arrested none from Sri Lankan Tamil terrorists. For example KP is a wanted man by the Interpol. Did Interpol ever ask the SL government or Thailand government to hande over him? Noooo..

  23. Dear Ian ,

    If these race based politics didn’t take place SWRD/Chelva pact or Dudley/Chelva pact would have worked. If then VPs and Balrajs would have lived in Sri Lanka and become successful people rather than aiming guns at each other and been scattered all over the world.
    _______________________________

    I think you have tried to analyse things as unbiased as possible. I would say good attempt.

    However the above para I copied may not have happened. From what I have read ,courtesy to DBSJ, about VP & PA & the rest of the hardcore LTTE, they were die hard on a separate state.

    At the present juncture in our island nation, it is best to learn from our past mistakes,shed the hardcore stands, have a forgiving & a repenting heart, then reach out to the others.

    The futility of a war/confrontational path should be engraved in all.

    I agree that the common man in Sri Lanka are now have overcome the syndrome of seeing the tamil as an enemy, & vise versa.

    However the politicians are yet to show statesmanship in dealing with the real issues facing the common man be it in N,E,S,or W.

    Its time for the civil society to raise an unbiased voice about change of policy. When the regime is challenged they become insecure & acts in a retaliation.

    All should seek a non confrontational path. Especially the people in the north should win the hearts of the rulers that they are not against the rulers.

    What the northern & eastern people should do is to have more discussion with the people of the other parts of the country take their needs & fears to them.

    I know it must be difficult to trust a govt that waged war 2 years ago destroying their homes & kept them in camps..and many more. However they need to seek a non confrontational path and win their right to live as equal citizen in this country. I feel this is the only alternative at present.

    Whatever the CH4 video & UNSG panel report gimmicks.. the reality is the common man in this country will have live in this country with a crooked regime and hardcore leaders as always since 1950s.

  24. [Well, implement it now and be done with it instead of talking to the TNA ad infinitum. The only people lieing here are the Sri-Lankan government and the whole world has finally realised it.]

    Why?

    Why should we give? What DO YOU GIVE BACK TO US? Insults, terror, defamation, problems?

    What are your qualifications to get it?

    Have TNA coolies ever shouldered the responsibilities that come with ‘leadership’? Are they serving and protecting the Tamil Speaking Sri Lankans and MotherLanka OR… are they serving the Tamil Terrorist Diaspora… creating embarrassment and problems to Sri Lankans, their leaders and MotherLanka?

    Why should Sri Lankans consider anything when the TNA does not show ability to respect the country and its people? If you are trying to bring in foreign chandiyas to our family quarrel, be prepared to face the consequences, and get evicted.

    Nothing… absolutely nothing should be given, except lip service, to these crooked traitors.

    [You, and those that possess your half-a-brain are the cause of all of Sri-Lanka’s ills and if Sri-Lanka will ever be divided, the tamils will have morons such as yourself to thank]

    So long as our half-a-brain was smart enough find a way to fry the invincible Tamil terrorists in hot oil en masse, we are sooooooooooooooooooooooooo happy!

    Chew on that…

  25. Rajah. You may be right that I am Stupid. The sactions imposed on Iran, North Korea etc. are UN sanctions. For that to happen China and Russia has to make a 180 degree turn. JJ is demanding sanctions by India. With the southern port in place the and known rivalry of India & China I am sure SL can get every thing we need from China. Also the southern port is suspected to be designed to be a Chinese navy base. If Indian impose sanctions then they may not be able to object that becoming a chinese navy base. India may not be able to do an invasion at the current climate. My point however is based on trade balances. Although one would expect that Indian and SL trade balance is in SL’s favour considering the size of India, it is other way around. We export very little to India compared to what we import from India. So I dont think India will be that studpid having an economist as a prime minister. I am not an economist nor a politician hence me been stupid is excusable. :))

  26. ALBERT says
    “600 un armed Police men were handed over to Prabakaran on a plate by the Sinhala rulers of Srilanka
    exactly 21 years ago.,to be slaughtered with their hands tied at the back”.

    The 600 policemen were killed after they surrendered, but whether thier hands tied at the back
    or not there is no evidence, unlike those shown on channel 4 TV.

    Who was responsible for this killing?
    Where is that person now?
    Why is the present ruler MR Govt. protecting and even rewarding him with Ministers post?

    Albert, can you please answer these points?

  27. Interpol is unable to locate Sicille Kotelawala, wife of J.L.Kotelawala, and almost the fattest woman in sri lanka – she will stand out in any crowd. She is very rich, with funds plundered from the Golden Key Credit Card scam. There is rumour that Interpol does not catch those who can afford to hide in plain sight of people who are purposely blind.

  28. dear ian,
    while it is debatable whether india will impose sanctions on srilanka based on tamil nadu assembly resolution.i dont think india will by any means get affected rather it is srilanka which will get affected.bear it in mind srilanka is an island and unlike iran or north korea or syria which is surrounded by land mass.it is definitely true that airtel,tat motars,tata homes have invested in srilanka but it is very small when compared to what srilanka will lose as a result of sanctions.let us assume that srilanka depends on china it will pay a heavy price for it.sensible thing which i dont think indian policy makers whose chief attribute is hindu meekness will ever do is strangulate srilanka and try to get a good deal for tamils.let srilanka lean on china but china is not going to give srilanka every thing for free.two years back when pakistan was under severe financial crisis it went to saudi arabia and china for help it was turned despite the fact that pakistan and china are all weather friends they share a border and china has helped pakistan in building its nuclear reactors.if this is the state of affairs i dont think srilanka will fare any better in case sanctions are imposed.who needs your porceleins we can get it elsewhere.

  29. Why dont you take your family back to Orissa. You crazy lazy apes always wishing to steal Tamil money. Begging other countries for aid. Tamil Eelam will be achieved whether you like it or not. Sinhalese are a disgrace to Buddha’s teaching and a waste of oxygen. All the scum due to Sinhalese colonization in Tamil Eelam need to be cleared.

  30. I condemn all the violence that took place against humanity in Sri Lanka in the name of freedom/sovereignty.

    Who ever, for what ever reason, using violence is a great crime against humanity.
    For God’s sake those crimes should not be repeated again.

    =====================================================================================

    Perfectly correct and well said. Singalese should follow the LTTE policy. Prepaire for war while talking peace!! Dont take chances with snakes.

  32. jagan

    while it is debatable whether india will impose sanctions on srilanka based on tamil nadu assembly resolution
    ————————————————-
    India will not impose sanctions on srilanka. End of story. No point in debating a hypothetical situation that will not happen.India will move its position from pro mahinda to neautral.It will not become anti mahinda.

  33. Yes Ian, First we need to remove the blocking stones to achive your Idea.

    All Srilankans need to be educated How Switziland ,Singapore,UK,USA and canda could be very sucessful countries through non-violent politics and regonising all race,religion and Language rights.

    Tamils should use all posible ways to shine through Srilanka country resources as equal citizens like how they be sucessful in other international countries.

    Sinhalese need to regognise this is not only their country, Tamils country as well and support their self rule Tamil language administration in NorthEast same as they enjoying in south and west.

    By voting against rasist politicians and supporting only good policies. They can chage the country political stuctre to how it should be roll in the future.

    Medias need to highlight this continuoesly to awake all from the dark.

  34. Gavin,

    Preparing for war is acceptable, however do not prepare for war crimes and pogroms going back on your rich history that the whole world is well aware!

  35. LKS, I agree that TNA has not changed from our point of view/seems anti GoSL.

    However can we look at our majority political parties & UPFA. Have they changed their hardcore anti tamil, anti power sharing attitudes?

    Aren’t all at top the same?

    We need the political will to change.
    Yes LTTE is eliminated.
    However the tamils are asking to rule their regions with certain amount of autonomy without central govt interfering.
    Today the majority tamil speaking population in N&E are not asking for a separate state/nation. In my opinion they never wanted but had to keep silent due to fear of the gun.

    We can go on labeling the Sri Lankan tamils as pro LTTE.
    Then when are we letting them to live in this nation as equal citizens without fear?
    Can we all assure them of this? That the violence & state terror will not repeat?
    Have we done this during the last 2 years?

    We the majority have to win the hearts of the minority. We have no fear of LTTE now in SL but the N&E tamils yet to over come the fear of the gun.

    Please correct me if I am wrong. Please give me answers to above Qs.

  36. What if India, UN, diaspora, all parties and civil society in Sri Lanka demand for a strong equal opportunity act? (Bill of rights). Similar acts are in place in Canada, USA, Australia , New Zealand etc. This will make discriminating based on race, religion, cast, political beliefs etc. illegal.It is my view a merit based society is the solution to many of our woes. Even in TN where more federal powers are delegated wealthy discriminates the poor, people of ‘high casts’ discriminates the people of ‘lower casts’. While many go hungry others get paid millions to allocate spectrums. While rich party away in hotels and poor go hungry. While bright kids have to work as labourers dumb rich kids go to paid schools and universities. Even before LTTE, the JVP in the south was fighting the dicriminations and supression. Equal oppotunity act, student loan schemes (like Australia) that gives the path for education for rich and the poor alike will make the sucess based on skills, intelligence and merit rather than on birth or might. We just have to copy /paste certain things that are tested and worked in other countries.

  37. i was born yesterday and i heard that tamils in sri lanka are treated as second class citizens.is it true ?.In what ways are the tamils treated as second class citizens?

  38. new born infant

    Since you are still sucking on your mama’s nipples don’t worry about these things.

    When you are about 20 you will get caught to the problems created by the wise decisions of your dada’s generation,same way we got caught to the consequences of SWRD,JR.Sirimavo etc wise decisions.Then you can ask questions like who is the second class citizen etc.That is 20 years away so now quit worrying and enjoy the milk. Remember before you get on to the milk powder this is the last chance to enjoy the genuine authentic made in mama product.

    One more additional thing you may get caught to which fortunately we did not have when we became adults, is the debt burden. After finding that the courts stopped him from playing out all the tsunami moneys completely ,mahinda mama whom your dads generation praise so much,got a bright idea to embark on development projects with loans with hefty cuts to his family and clan.At the moment each srilankan including you owes about 200000 rupees and still growing with accumulated interest and more loans to pay back the earlier loans etc.You are the sucker at the bottom of the pyramid scheme.

    Enjoy your mums milk now because later on there might be nothing else to enjoy,unless like us you manage to get out of the country. However be careful and don’t go to jordan or other middle east countries if you are a woman,because you will end up with hundreds sucking your nipples,and biting you all over when there is no milk.

    —————————————-
    I agree with you we should have such a thing because then people realise that they are doing something illegal when discriminating.It is a step in the right direction,but will not solve the problem of discrimination.In the countries you mention discrimination is rife but not done in such a way that people can be accused of it. For example chinese who have changed their names to western sounding ones,tell me that they are called for the interview,but the moment they see their chinese faces the dissapointment on the interviewers face is plain to see.Before that those with chinese names were not even called for interview.If they call and ask why they were rejected a crap answer will always be given such as you came so close but just missed it due to your lack of experience in growing turnips.

    Unfortunately when you are born in the wrong side of the fence it is your karma i suppose to suffer.Your suffering will only cease when you meet a fairminded person who will look at you as a fellow human being and treat you accordingly.A decent person can do what all the laws can’t.So it will depend on your luck whether you meet such a person.

    As for tamilnadu that you mention,i agree with you federalism has not solved the problem of discrimination,but at least it is a step in the right direction like the bill of rights laws you mention.You are narrowing down this way with laws and devolution and reducing the problem but cannot eradicate it.

    At least now tamilnadu can’t complai that aryans are discriminating against dravidians.They have to point their finger inwards.The best thing for tamilnadu to further reduce the problem is to see that more and more decent people will get higher positions,because culture permeates from the top down to the bottom.If your boss discriminates it will be difficult for you not to,because then you will be heading for a clash with him with your principles versus his and we know who is going to lose his or her job.

    When Prof.GL Peiris was a minister under President Kumaratunga he did try to introduce an equal opportunities bill modelled on Australian legislation. But there was such an outcry from sections of Sinhala society particularly students that the govt backtracked and shelved it.

    By saying karuna was responsible,that means you are saying he made the decision to kill them.I think we may be unfair in making out that he was the no 1 in the hierarchy who makes such decisions. karuna could not run the eastern part of the LTTE automously.That was his maingrouse and leading him to fall out with the jaffna leaders.

    Prabha and pottu would have decided to kill the policemen. Those two were psychos.karuna told the LLRC he was in the wanni at that time. i don’t know whether he subsequently followed the orders given to him, but if he did,i think in the LTTE with those two mad chaps it would be impossible not to carry it out. Even the slightest whiff of disloyalty is enough to get you killed.See what happenned to mahattaya.karuna had the brains not to go when he was called for a ‘talk’with prabha,otherwise he would hve ended on the rack with pottu turning the wheel.

    By following LTTE policy as per your advice,mahinda and srilanka will end up like prabha and LTTE one day .

    The main mistake the LTTE made was not being flexible when the environment changes. Now you are giving the same advice to the govt and saying don’t be flexible even though the environment has changed.

    Try to bring out some better examples to follow for the country,not failures like LTTE policy.

    A good example will be Kemal Ataturk, the founder of modern turkey. He was a great war leader who changed his policy from fighting europe to directing turkey towards europe the moment the war ended. A flexible leader who directed the country properly after the war,otherwise turkey would have ended up like iran and iraq,but minus the oil to keep it afloat.

    A bad example was winston churchill who after the war ended was still in war mode,and got kicked out.He was devastated and bitter that the english people were ungrateful, but he has only himself to blame if he could not adapt to the changing environment like kemal ataturk who is still revered in turkey.

    You and LK sword are inflexible characters like prabha.That is your personality trait.Not only in this matter but in all matters you both will not change your mindset.That will bring problems for you in your life,if you don’t do something about it.

  43. If majority of the people un-educated about new statregy to change old politics and not enough inteligent participating in this process results always the same. Sinhalese are majority of the south and west, same as Tamils are majority of the North and East. There should be independent arrangement to be made through constitution both lingual groups to empower their Areas for brightlanka. Their voices need to be heared. religous and language oppression should be stoped as well as state sponsered colonies and violance.

  46. ‘LTTE’ is just a label.

    Are we going accept that label as authentic? What we have to ask ourselves is ‘who assigned that label? Are they laughing at us when we parrot… ‘LTTE’… ‘LTTE’?

    Did LTTE itself assign that label?

    It is the TTD, with a clear vision to create havoc… that appointed LTTE and therefore will be our permanent enemy.

    It’s hardly likely TTD members will stop collecting funds… and engaging in hostile activities OUTSIDE our borders… but that is their problem.

    What we have to do is to SriLankanize the whole NE and obliterate any remaining traces of a ‘Tamil’ homeland. Landless folks, investors and our valiant troops must be given free land from the NE. Properties of the members of the TTD must be confiscated.

    We have a lot of work to be done… Are we still sleeping?

    As the process takes at least three generations, we’d better start right away… and today looks bright, great and RED to march towards that noble goal

  48. Samarasekera

    The definition of homeland is a state,region or territory that is closely identified with a particular people or ethnic group.

    I think that fits the bill for the north east where tamils are concerned.

    As for self rule it is defined as rule of a people by their own leaders as opposed to rule imposed by a foreign govt or people.

    IF the tamils are asking for seperation,then that fits the bill of self rule.

    If they are asking for devolution,that is not self rule as the srilankan govt does not become a foreign govt if there is devolution.

    Whenever tamil leaders use these terms they should clarify what it means to the sinhalese,otherwise it results in a lot of confusion and misunderstanding among them.They think that homeland and devolution means seperation,whereas it does not.Self rule certainly does mean seperation and tamil leaders should stop using that term.

    ———————————————-
    Even if you do that the the tamil homeland concept will not go away,because once a ethnic group is identified with a particular region by the rest of the world,artifically and forcibly changing demographics will not erase the homeland concept which took centuries to occur.

    However if you change the demographics as you propose to do,and the government has already embarked on it it seems,and it is successful for the next 1000 years or so the world may begin to accept that the north east is not a tamil homeland and the new demographics might be recognized.

    So your plans to erase the homeland of the tamils will be sucessful only in 1000 years or so,because tamils have been already living there for that long at least.Just changing the demographics for 100 years will not erase their historical identity to the land.In the meantime anything could happen and you could lose the entire north east. War on LTTE or diaspora who may be still supporting LTTE is okay and will be understood as fair fight by most tamils,but war on tamil people will have dangerous consequences on the sinhalese from the point of time they have declared the war upto the next hundred years.Shortsighted fools like you will put the sinhalese and srilanka in a soup the same way uneducated blokes like prabha put the LTTE and tamils in the wanni into a soup.Your education level must be very low in my opinion,am i right?I’am not a big fan of paper qualifications,but when i see a dud talking big,i believe paper qualifications are indeed better than nothing.Please stick to your capacity without creating unnecessary troubles for the people of srilanka who have gone through enough and need a break badly.We are trying to repair the damage while guys like you are trying to create more.

  50. Sir Shanker…

    [Even if you do that the the tamil homeland concept will not go away]

    We have dealt with Tamil terrorism for ages… it’s not somthing new. We will take whatever that is necessary to convince ALL CONCERNED THAT that Tamil homeland is Tamilnadu, India.

    [So your plans to erase the homeland of the tamils will be sucessful only in 1000 years or ]

    We will cross the bridge when we come to it… We need peace to live now.

    [but war on tamil people will have dangerous consequences…]

    We have no quarrel with Tamil speaking Sri Lankans. They have great regard for the GOSL for rescuing them from the Tamil terrorists. They cam live everywhere in the country and that right must extend to other as well.

    Had we methodically done the SriLankanization since the 50s… the TTD would have never prospered.

    [Please stick to your capacity without creating unnecessary troubles for the people of srilanka who have gone through enough and need a break badly.We are trying to repair the damage while guys like you are trying to create more.]

    Oh… please.. the above does not agree with your hidden agenda to create divisons among Sri Lankans and parrot about a Tamil homeland.

    Thanks… but no thanks… we will go our journey as Sri Lankans… obliterating any room to claim any additional homeland… If anyone does not like us, the gates are now open for departure.

    ————————————————————————————————-
    LTTE policy has of talking peace but preparing for war needs to be followed by GOSL because of the intransient nature of Tamils. Today after 30yrs country is in peace. Of course, GOSL is corrupt but which government is not? There are great changes in the country and the growth rate in the Tamil east and north was recently found to be the highest. I am sure the per capita income among the Tamils is double that of the Singhalese. Of course some have suffered hardship due to their alliance with LTTE and this is their problem. But at all turns Tamils will not hesitate to shit on GOSL or Singhalese. Of course all Tamils are not that but many are. Therefore Singhalese must be on their guard for the next 50 yrs. This is not to say we must not treat them equally as our brothers and deprive them of their rights. But we must not put ungrateful snake people into our pocket. Classic example is pasupathy, former attorney general of SL who got all the perks when in SL and then in Sydney became a tiger spokesman!! What an ungrateful bastard. I can tell a hundred tamils who have done this. After getting free education and making money in SL, they go abroad and run down the country and the people.

    LTTE’s demise was not because they followed the “talking peace while preparing for war” policy. It was because VP was an autocrat and did not listen to others while MR is a team player. VP was a racist while MR is not. MR is educated while VP was not and I don’t think he had any close friends among other communities. MR’s friends range from Tamils, burgers and Muslims.

    You can’t be too flexible when dealing with murderers. Churchill was a classic example of a bull headed man just like MR who wanted to destroy the enemy come what may. He lost an election because of his great determination and the people did not see his valuable nature as he was fighting a war. But next turn he became the PM of UK and even today celebrated as the greatest war time leader of UK. Lord Atlee who defeated Churchill at the first election did not have the balls to take UK forward. Similarly, all other PM’s of SL did not have the balls to kill the LTTE and take SL forward unlike MR.
    You can call me inflexible but we got to do what we have to hold SL together. If the Tamils don’t like it or they are unwilling to toil for the goodness of our little island then they must vamboose to Tamil nadu and probably lick jayalalitha’s feet. Tamils can’t be allowed to have their own way any more and insult the Singhalese at every turn. But tamils will not go to TN but wants a good life in SL but insult our people. Time is up and the game is up. They want to have the cake as well as eat it!!

  52. I think LKS is not plain stupid but just a macho man. Wants to scare off the TTD. For him TTD=LTTE.

    Most of what he’s posting are just threats to scare off the TTD. Any one who really intend to do what he says, will do it quietly not advertising to the whole world.

    ‘barking dogs never bite’. Petting is what they need.

    Of course this is my opinion which could be wrong as not a very credible source.

  53. Shanker,

    If the NE is homeland for ‘Tamils’, how come:

    a) They live in hundereds of thousands in other parts of the country?
    b) Why those living in other parts of the country do not want to live in their
    ‘homeland’, the NE?
    c) Where is the evidence that the Tamils` in the NE want separation?
    d) Why Tamil Terrorist Diaspora holding foreign citizenship scream and shout for seperation?
    ( what interest these foreigners have in the NE?)
    e) If we allow seperate states for communities and races within each country, how many thousands of new countries would born? Is that healthy?
    f) Why cannot those who encourage a separate tTamil state emmigrate to Tamilnadu?

    Answers to your questions in same order
    a)the country is available to everyone.The fact that you have a homeland in norteast does not forbid you to live in other parts. The constitution is the ultimate authority.If you don’t want the tamils to live in other parts you got to change the constitution accordingly. I think you have seen the definition of homeland i have given. It is not a seperate country and just because you have a homeland it does not mean you can demand seperation due to that.being identified with a land is different from being in control or ownership of that land.For example you can give you house on rent to a tamil and he can call it his home because he is identified with it,but you are still the owner. Cunning TULF politicians like amirthalingam twisted and turned the homeland concept to suit their seperation agenda and the sinhalese swallowed it.Instead of saying so what,it does not mean you own the land, they went in the direction of disputing the homeland which is ridiclous and will not be accepted by the international community. The sinhalese can also tell we have made the whole country the homeland of the tamils and they are living in the south for generations.So does it mean they want the upcontry and colombo too.

    B)look at answer at A

    c)After the vaddukoddai resolution in 1976 TULF got thumping wins in 1977 and claimed that people have endorsed their manifsto of seperation. In my opinion they were cunning politicians.No difference from the sinhala ones where votes is concerned. Anyway people can’t just ask for seperation whenever they like. If so many countries will become smaller and smaller. It should be a last resort, not the first opportunity to get votes.

    d)I don’t know why.Everyone has their reasons. Some follow like cattle the others.You will have to ask them that.I only put my 2 cents worth to things i know and am sure about.I don’t know the reasons but i think july 83 where most of them were chased out might be one.

    e)i think i have answered in c.It is certainly not healthy. The bigger you are the better.

    f)tamils in srilanka can’t just emigrate to tamilnadu. If there is no political solution maybe jaya should ask the central government to give indian citizenship to the tamils in srilanka.Then they will have dual citizenship and can gradually leave srilanka when they want and the sinhalese will be rid of them little by little.The moment they go and reside in india,srilanka can cancel their citizenship. It will be another sirima shastri pact. This time mahinda manmohan pact.

  56. Gavin,

    When I read your racist comments and the newly released war crimes video, I come to a conclusion that I never considered to be a viable option. The LTTE’s methods may have been criminal but they were right about one thing; a separate state is the only solution. I don’t care if it takes 50 or 100 years, all I know is that the pain the Sinhalese military have inflicted on the Tamils will never be forgotten and we will overcome eventually. After the latest round of war and the subsequently verified reports of serious war crimes, I have lost my sincere faith in the Sinhalese majority. We will get a separate and yes, it may take 50 or 100 years but it will happen. It is simply a matter of geopolitics eventually changing in our favor.

    It truly saddens me that the Sinhalese majority continue with this policy of military oppression. I wanted to believe that Sri Lanka can one day become a multicultural state but that is the true impossibility because of people like you.

  57. We will eventually get independence, it’s people like you who have already divided the island. The Sri Lankan state is myth, it doesn’t exist. What does exist is a racist Sinhalese state, nothing more. Stop pretending like you stand for ethnic harmony, your comment shows exactly what you think of your neighbors. The time will eventually come when you will reap what you have sown. It was no different when the LTTE paid for their terrorism with annihilation and it will be no different for the war criminals.

  58. LK sword

    ———————————————–

    You did embark systematically on sinhalisation and making srilanka a bhuddhist country too since independence. That is what created the LTTE and tamil diaspora in such numbers.Only fools don’t learn from mistakes and want to repeat them.Einstein said the definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over again expecting a different result.

    As for hidden agendas, you are obviuosly suffering from paranoia.It is a mild form of mental illness.I don’t know about srilanka but in the west one in five suffer from mental illness.After a 25 year war i guess it must be quite prevalent in srilanka especially in the north east.

  59. gavin

    LTTE policy has of talking peace but preparing for war needs to be followed by GOSL because of the intransient nature of Tamils

    But tamils will not go to TN but wants a good life in SL but insult our people.

    But we must not put ungrateful snake people into our pocket

    ——————————————–
    Did not that policy result in LTTE ending up in nanthikadal. They had golden opportunities for peace.but as you rightfully said were not interested.Now you are telling srilanka to also follow their failed policy.In otherwords if there is an opporunity for lasting peace,don’t take it,but prepare for war.You can’t do both at the same time wholeheartedly. Peace means peace and war means war.Fine role model you are following in prabha.

    Who are the tamils in srilanka having a good life and insulting SL?name a few who are there at the moment.

    Ingratitude is a human trait. Are you saying sinhalese are always grateful to the country?If there is a sports event in japan our weightlifters are missing.Recently sinhalese managrs in a garment factory in jordan were molesting our women. Is that the way to show gratitude. some muslims in srilanka are constantly making money with illegal business practices. Sinhalese are raping our environment,cutting all the trees and taking all the river sand, and now with nothing to rape more,starting in the north.rich sinhalese want to get richer by taking bribes. I can excuse the really poor ones. So all this you call ways to show gratitude to the country.

    Can you tell me some of the things you have done to show your gratitude to srilanka?I won’t ask you for the ingratitude part because you are human and would not like to mention that.Remember even if you ever took foreign currency other than through banks, out of the country,that is ingratitude.

  60. the soil is not sacred, it is the people, human lives. I have lost faith in the ability of people like you to change, so I have simply changed myself along with all the others who hoped the Sinhalese majority would do the right thing. The right thing would be to build a pluralistic state. We will not advocate war, neither will we accept the injustice that is the Sri Lankan state.

  61. Joining the mainstream and working together as one nation are the best way to go.

    Hope you get what I am trying to say.

    Harder the fight… sweeter the victory.

  62. Shankar…..

    It is certainly not LTTE’s policy of talking peace while preparing for war that resulted in LTTE ending up in nanthikadal. There were very many other significant criteria which I have disclosed in my previous post and I don’t want to go over it again.

    However, when there is a bunch of people who are out for our blood come what may or what ever the GOSL does and seeds of discontent are being sowed every day, the Singhalese must be prepared for any eventuality.

    Although LTTE was the most murderous people, the majority of Tamils did not try to condone them because they were to a great degree with them. That means the Singhalese peace and peace in SL is always at stake and any GOSL which does not take this seriously are putting their necks at the intersection.

    Successive Governments of SL where unprepared for war while VP was. The result was a lop sided negotiation process followed by the Sinhala leaders because they negotiated from a position of weakness. They never could nail VP effectively. See what I am saying? Today the US says they may be in a position to negotiate with Taliban because they are in control of the war in Afghanistan. Always, Murderers like VP will not listen to logic. They have gone past that stage and only feature they will take notice is violence or show of arms or intimidation.

    I do not wish to name the ungrateful tamils abroad who got their education in SL and went abroad and bucket SL. There is no point in naming and defaming people. But one I know is a doctor in UK, an old boy of royal college and a good rugby player. Another is another doctor, old boy of st John ’s. Another in Australia is the son of a former top police officer. This list goes on endlessly. These are all tamils who are having a good life abroad, got their free education and back ground from SL under a Singhalese government, their families held position under a Singhalese govt and then bucket SL and the Singhalese at every opportunity.

    If our weight lifters in Japan go missing, or Singhalese managers in garment factory in Jordan was screwing our women or Singhalese cutting down forest in SL, these are individual acts of passion or greed. Not intentional acts done for the purpose of throwing mud at GOSL and the Singhalese. You cannot compare this with what tamils are indulging in. nevertheless I don’t say these acts are correct but to compare what tamils are doing is no proper analogy.

    Acts that I have done to show my gratitude is simply I haven’t bucketed SL or the Singhalese or even the Tamils without cause. Although not a rich man, I have tried to live my life simply and not indulging in anything which will bring disrepute to SL. But I do bucket extreme Tamils because they are the cause of the problem. Probably they comprise about 6% of population and that’s why I say, if they don’t like it, they should just bugger off or get killed in the next round.

    The definition of homeland is a state,region or territory that is closely identified with a particular people or ethnic group.

    I waighted for RAJAH’S reply, Because of he didn’t like to do so, I will reply for your coment.

    ACCORDING TO THE HISTORICAL DOCUMENT THE TAMIL HOMELAND IN NORTH & EAST IS A FABRIGATED ONE.

    Prior to year 1796 there is no such clue.
    CLAGEN HOGEN who act as english ruler for short time in coastal area in the island, reported there was a seperate specific group of people living in notheren area in between KUMBUKKAN OYA and MALWATHU OYA and they differ with the rest of the people in the island.He drew the map in this regard too.

    CLAGEN HOGEN was not competent to do taht because he spent here 3 weeks in year 1791 and 14 months in year 1796. Then due to the fraud of pearl he expelled from the country.In this teport he mensioned that SINHALEES are came from siyem(thailand)
    Even His successior, NORTH also refused his opinion.

    However in year 1766 a Poortugees researcher namely DUPRECK saw within 4 miles teretory in between heavy forest and sea, there was a small group of people are living in Eastern coastel area.

    When Poortugees adding Jaffna into their controll, they extended this administrative unit up to VANNIE.
    Douch rulers further extended it as calling COMANMENT OF JAFFNA PALLM.
    Under the British rule it was extended up to PUTHLAM and TRINCOMALEE.

    IN YEAR 1799, HU CLAGEN HAGE,(the 1 colonial secretary in the coastal area) produced “Douch government’s income and judishary” report in CEYLON OLD MAMAC AND ANUAL REGISTER paper with CLAGEN HOGEN report and map.

    In year 1951 Dr, Rapls Peris re- produced this map in JOUNNAL OF VOYAL ASIATIC SOCIETY (1954 P.125) he mensioned nothern part beyondKUMBUKKAN OYA and MALWATHU OYA there was a MALABAR community by the traditions and language which differ with SINHALEES.

    According to INDRAPALA’S observation here was no beyond the 10 century( Maga’s invension) there were no establish tamil community in the island.

    SJV a foreigner wanted to established the idea that tamils have specific identity, so he introduced the homeland ideology.
    C. SUNDARALINGAM who was the theortician of homeland theoryin year 1957 wrote a letter to SWRD for asking homeland.
    AMURTHALINGAM ( who wants the skins of sinhalees to furnishing his slepers) went to corts for asking homeland.

    Now you know what happend after that. after VADUKKODAI DRAMA and so on.
    History stands for no homeland in srilanka for tamils in sri lanka. May be there in India.

  66. Dear samarasekera

    Good on you. Will discuss later with you this complex topic of homeland. I noticed on the link your assimiliation theories may be right because tamils and sinhalese share 55% of common genetic profiles. After independence of course assimiliation would have come to a grinding halt because our fools went on sinhala bhuddhist nationalism path and tamils countered by tamil nationalism. Once you highlight ethnicities instead of downplaying it,even people who are living with each other in a small island for centuries will not assimilate any further.

  67. Huh! But Mrs. Adele Balasingham is well in UK while participated in crimes against humanity (cf. Child Soldiers), while a close to no name TMVP supporter is ordered a warrant. What a farce!
