Vicious attack by Army in Alaveddy on TNA meeting with MPs present

by D.B.S. Jeyaraj

A Tamil National Alliance meeting with 5 TNA MP’s present was attacked by a group of Sri Lankan army men at Alaveddy in Jaffna on june 16th.

['Hooliganism in Colombo-Attacks on Tamil Satyagrahis', Times UK, June 6, 1956]

About 15-20 uniformed army personnel wielding poles,batons&rods entered the Saiva Maha Sabhai hall premises at Alaveddy & assaulted the people.

While some chased away the people others climbed the stage. The mike was snatched from Jaffna MP Saravanabavan who was speaking at the time.

When the army thugs tried to assault Saravanabavan his bodyguards intervened & blocked it.Then the army attacked the bodyguards of TNA MP’s.

The TNA has condemned the incident & stated that the party will take up the issue with higher authorities in the Govt & defence establishment.

Meanwhile Northern Army commander Maj-Gen Hathurusinghe has denied the incident & refuted TNA charges, according to some media reports.

If not for the brave resistance put up by bodyguards in defence of MP’s the TNA leaders could have been viciously assaulted by the army mob.

Police bodyguards of Jaffna district MP’s Saravanabavan, Suresh Premachandran&Sritharan had serious injuries while others had minor injuries.

Many of the injured persons received first – aid&medical treatment at the Thellippazhai hospital.Patients refused to be warded due to fear.

The 5 TNA MP’s led by Senathirajah lodged a complaint at the Thellippazhai Police station. A police party went to Alaveddy & made “inquiries”.

Several vehicles parked at the venue were also smashed by the army mob.TNA MP vehicles were damaged.Premachandran MP’s vehicle was abandoned.

TNA sources say the Alaveddy meeting was not a public meeting. It was only for candidates & party members. Therefore “Permission” was not required.

The TNA meeting at Saiva Maha Sabhai hall in Alaveddy was not an election propaganda public meeting. So permission was unnecessary says TNA.

The Army mob which attacked had fire-arms also. But they were not used. Instead wooden poles & steel rods were used. An Army “Major” led the mob.

Maj- Gen Janaka Walgama GOC 51 Division & Director General of Defence Intelligence met the TNA MP’s at Thellippazhai & tendered an apology.

    Hmmm…. a bundle of tweets!

    Nevertheless, GOSL & SLA should investigate the incident and justice must be done.

    We should not have fear to do the right thing.

  2. Gbsganesan says:

    It is high time India steps in.

    Someone from TNA has to take it to Jayalalitha seriously.

  3. Ilaya Seran Senguttuvan says:

    If the President has nothing to do with this – and I believe he probably did not – is it possible he has lost control of the army, and particularly in Tamil areas.

    Are we being made to visit history in 1956-58, 1981 for reasons the Tamil people know not. It was indifferent governance then that brought about the whirlwind the country is reaping in the past 3 decades and more. Is there a conspiracy of creating turmoil and mayhem simply because the Govt is unable to deliver on its promises to bring peace and unity made to many sources in the international community.

    An army apology or an inquiry will not suffice here.

    The TNA MPs are the representatives of the Tamils.Clearly shows the hooliganism and barbarianism act unleashed on the innocent Tamil civilians.where is democracy?
    TNA MP’s call fo Seperate State enough is enough.I hope many took pictures and tapes.See that it is all sent to BBC Channel 4.
    Commander Hathurusinghe,reign in your babarian men.

  5. Kalu Albert says:

    Isn’t it intriguing that this alleged Vicious Attack comes fresh on the heels of the CH4 horror show about Killing Fields

  6. Panhinda says:

    These Chevalayagam types always knew how to push the buttons. What did Chelvanayagam say when asked how Eelam is going to be achieved? He said we will become a nuisance to the Sinhalese so much so they will ask us to leave and form our own country.

  7. Upali says:

    Armed forces very angry with TNA for welcoming UN panel report and chanell 4 TV film. So TNA can expect more fireworks in future

  8. Manju says:

    Do we realistically expect the military to grant permission to hold such peaceful meetings by Tamils based on government’s clouded past history? Do we even expect the government to acknowledge that such disruption of TNA meeting occurred, given that it always been more than economical with the truth?

  9. Disillusioned says:

    Although the LTTE forfeited any sort of legitimacy through their terrorist tactics, the need for a separate has been verified by the Sinhalese political and military establishment. Tamils will never be treated as equals, they will always be treated as a conquered people. A separate state may be an impossibility now but through these injustices it will eventually become inevitable.

    The term genocide seemed to be an exaggeration before but with all the mounting evidence and the continued oppression, the truth has been revealed.

  10. S. C. Pasqual says:

    Is this true..?????

    This is not acceptable…

    Whatever the differences people should have their right to express themselves and army should not have intervened in civilian gathering.

  11. Freevoice says:

    History is repeating itself!

  12. NAM says:

    Quote : political meeting.It was found the meeting was being held without military permission

    Who said we have democracy. where on the earth that in a Democratic Country that need permission from Army.

    May ne both Dr. Rajasingha Narendra and Merlin from Australia can answer this question.

    Of course they will come up with good excuses ( TNA was LTTE’s Proxy at once)

  13. sjoseph says:

    In a military rule, attack by Army is normal and expected.

  14. tamil says:

    If Praba is not there to protect thepeople this is what happens! I hope the Tamils will realise this.

  15. Suvendrini says:

    DBSJ – You are one of the finest writters and we love to read you avidly. You are also known to be fair in your reporting.

  16. Anton says:

    The army is only acting on behalf of douglass Devanantha. EPDP is shit scared of TNA at the local authority elections in Jaffna. TNA will win all. So EPDP try to scare TNA with army

  17. aratai says:

    .

    Part of the reconciliation plan i guess!

    :-)

  18. GobiTiger says:

    Typical Sinhalese mentality of attacking innocent people.

  19. S. Navakadachcham says:

    Thank you DBS. This is the ‘gift’ for ‘Killing Fields’ from Gota.

  20. Navin says:

    I guess its safe to say that some people never learn from past mistakes. What an idiotic act on part of SLA. Its even worst to cover it up. TNA should raise this issue in parliament and at least let us hope that government will apologize to TNA and the issue will be settled amicably before it snowballs into something much bigger. First it was military barging into a meeting of Tamils that included likes of Prof. Hoole and now this, what is this guy Hathurusinghe doing?

  21. Safa says:

    Similiar incident seems to have occured yet again, yesterday 17th June 2011 in Jaffna. What a coincidence and simiiliarity. Nothing seems to have canged after 65 years.

    HISTORY IS REPEATING ITSELF AND SRI LANKA NEEDS TO FIND AN EXIT STRATEGY FROM POWER FOR RAJAPAKSE BROS. INC.
    1. Sri Lanka needs a viable EXIT STRATEGY for the Rajapakse Brothers at this time. This is the SINGLE biggest challenge for all concerned citizens, trade unions, the opposition, university lecturers, public intellectuals and all those who are patriots and care about Sri Lanka’s development and want to see values of decency and diversity upheld and respected by the Sri Lanka State. As long as the Rajapakse Brothers who are implicated in War Crimes continue to deny the facts and evidence, they will continue to Militarize the country to protect themselves against all those who disagree with their policies. Sri Lanka’s long awaited economic development will not happen with threatened economic sanctions by neighbouring Tamil Nadu, nor will the tourism sector develop if we are international outcasts. India is one of the largest tourist sending countries to Sri Lanka
    2. The truth will set us free. There needs to be an INDEPENDENT investigation into the rapes and other war crimes shown in the Channel 4 film, as well as, the “credible allegations of war crimes” set out in the UN Report on Sri Lanka’s”. Those who are responsible in the LTTE and the Sri Lanka military need to be punished, but it is unlikely that would happen as long as Gotabaya Rajapakse, a US citizen, is in charge of the Sri Lanka military. That is why we need to find an exit strategy from power for the Rajapakse Brothers.
    3. The UN Secretary General is very popular and has the support of ASIAN countries for a second term and the Sri Lanka government’s attempt to attack him and destroy his reputation has failed. Likewise, Britain’s Channel 4 is a very highly respected TV Chanel in Britain and the rest of the world and Gotabaya Rajapakse’s claim that they took funds from the LTTE to make the film which seeks to cause reputation damage and defames the Channel 4 (much like he tried to defame Mr. Moon) will fail and may be challenged in Court. The Rajapakse’s need to learn to control themselves and their loose talk and not bring further disgrace on this country, since it is the Asian countries that are supporting Mr. Moon and putting him forward for re-appointment as UN Secretary General when his term comes to an end
    4. Until the last stage of the 30 years of war the Sri Lanka military behaved in a fairly disciplined manner and neither party in the conflict committed rape in a systematic fashion (unlike in many other such internal conflicts where rape was committed to humiliate the “other” community). Where there were excesses in Sri Lanka the civilian authorities took the necessary action – until this last stage of war under the Rajapakses. The Crishanthi Coomaraswarmy case shows that the State took action on military excesses. However under the Rajapakse’s command the military have committed rape and other war crimes because the leadership fostered a culture of impunity and immunity and are therefore responsible for the crimes committed.
    5. The Channel 4 film is not against the whole of Sri Lanka, it points a finger at the few people who committed war crimes and their bosses, the Rajapakse Bros. who are militarizing the country to protect themselves from an eventual war crimes trial at the International Criminal Court in the Hague.
    6. We, concerned citizens, the political opposition and civil society need to work together to find a smooth EXIT STRATEGY FROM POWER for the Rajapakses who need to be sent to the Hague and to the United States where they are U.S. Citizens and subject to US jurisdiction — for trial for war crimes. Like the LTTE who became and were a curse on the Tamil people, the Rajapakse Bros. Inc has become a cures on mother Lanka and we need to free ourselves of them!
    7. They claim that the UN Report and the Chanel 4 film spreads racial hatred in Sri Lanka when it is their policies of militarizing, discriminating, oppressing the minorities and civil society that has spread racial hatred. They have also delayed on a political solution and justice delayed is justice denied. Time has run out for the Rajapakse Brothers Inc.’s power run in Lanka!
    8. Finally, the Rajpakse Bros. should also stop finding FAKE experts to deny truths that are self-evident. Rjapakse’s FAKE experts are saying that the overwhelming evidence of war crimes committed in the last stages of the war in Sri Lanka are FAKE. They already have a FAKE Dr. Mervin Silva who is a goon with a fake doctorate in their midst. They insult to the intelligence of Sri Lankan citizens!

  24. Tom Sam USA says:

    This attack by the barbarians should be cincidered a continuum of the genocide that started the 1956 , acmed in 2009 and now smouldering till the International fora act.
    I hope TNA has videos to document this pakse act.

  25. Alaveddiyaan says:

    I just spoke to my brother in Alaveddy. Army is doing house to house search in village for TNA members from outside places. People are very afraid

  26. jagan sriram says:

    attack on a town hall meeting presided over the tna member of parliaments is condemnable.it only reinforces the belief that sinhalese have not shed their mahavamsa mindset.when it is known that tigers have been vanquished and tamils are no longer fighting for the tamil eelam.what is the need for a huge prescence of sinhalese army in northern province.why cant law and order be maintained by police?.armys presence is not going to allay the fears of the tamils rather on the contrary it is going to sow only fears.i guess the bogey of tamil terrorism will be sustained so that all the emergency regulations are not lifted.srilankan government has to withdraw srilankan army phase by phase so that it can be replaced by police and what is the need for ex tigers to present themselves often this is only going to disrupt the new life they are leading.srilankan government has to have confidence in tamils or else they cant find any solution to the ethnic problem.

    Respect the freedom of opinion & democracy.

    where the SL authorities made mistakes in the past was to counter dissent of opinion undemocratically & ended up in a big mess. We are yet to over come those shock waves.

    Do not repeat the same mistakes. Let the tamil people voice their opinion democratically & let us come to an agreement with discussion & engagin in lawful ways.

    We in the south condemn any violence against unarmed men ,women & children.

    Praise the lord, history repeats itself.

    In 1983 on that fateful day in July when 23 members of the Tamil killing brigade made a hasty getaway from this planet to meet Saturn a few of their sissies in uniform mates went berserk, they ambushed buses dragged some of the passengers and killed them in cold blood including a six year old boy.

    Now with the hemorrhoids affected Goat’s the so called secretary of de fence who carries with him at all times the hangman’s noose encouragement these brave less warriors target even the so called 5 star democratically elected members of parliament.

    The people living in the north need permission from the so called military to hold meetings, to travel from one area to another and at the rate that they are proceeding making love to one’s partner or answering a call of nature will need prior military approval and can only be done in the presence and close supervision of the human rights chart her carrying very humane Buddha’s warriors.

    We the Tamil people are very very lucky to have these compassionate parasites of human thrash to protect us the aboriginals in bog Lanka.

    Killing Fields was screened less than 48 hours ago, the UK deferred the forceful repatriation of Tamil to their cursed motherland in a hellhole, an ex England cricket captain queries the need of the UK having any contacts with the Il reputed maunderers are uncontrollable, Sergeant Mahindathamby has beat a hasty retreat to St. Petersburg where he will cling onto the bosoms of the Chinese and Russians who have similar traits as him and wail ” save me, save me “.

    How stupid are these sad breed of jungle age primitive backward insecure two legged human beasts, they are digging their own graves,

    They should be encouraged to do so. R j.

    It will if the southern majority & TNA act wisely at this unlawful crimes. There should be open condemning of any unlawful act by the majority. So these will not out grow in proportion and be controlled.

    oh/// now don’t misuse / abuse the word ‘genocide’

  45. gunda says:

    TNA has not stopped its hate mongering yet.They drove thousands of young tamils to death .Sri Lanka belongs to Sri Lankans sinhala ,tamil,muslim.these tna puppets of tamilnadu jokers are trying to set fire to the communal harmony again.there should not be race based division,power sharing or whatever.if someone trying to destabilize the socity base on racial hatreded they should be dealt with .

  46. TRN says:

    oh ! no! not again !
    Please Mr. President if this is true intervene & act wisely. Do not repeat the mistakes of your forefathers.

    Stop this now. Do not bring back the fear to the lives of Jaffna & North.

    If you want democracy let there be democracy.

    Learn from past mistakes & act wisely. Get some good wise owls to advice you if you lack wisdom.

    We do not want our leaders to repeat the mistakes of the past.

  47. S. C. Pasqual says:

    Please wake up.

    Stop going behind Jayalalith or Vaiko or Erik solheim. Everybody used Sri Lankan Tamils to strengthen their political agendas.

  49. gunda says:

    Thanks to Rajapaksha Brothers Sri lankans are living without fear.Only criminals and saboteurs ,kappam collectors are living with fear.because the administration is behind them.Sri Lankan should forget the bad memories of the past.We should stop hatred.Even the old LTtE carders should be forgiven and brought to the society.hatred will never bring peace.
    We should notlet hard won peace to be disturbed by hate mongers,racist TNA,diaspora LTTE.
    These saboteurs want to remove Strong leaders with a strong backbone like Rajapaksha brothers and bring in weak leader because they cannot play around with dirty tricks with a leader like rajapaksha.

  52. Ram says:

    Dear TRN, who has not learned from past mistakes? The govt and the armed forces are going back to the 1950s era and trying to repeat the same mistake. We all know the sufferings we had in the past, are we going to take steps to correct it or create another misery.

  53. TRN says:

    what do u suggest the’EXIT STRATEGY FROM POWER FOR RAJAPAKSE BROS. INC.’ should be?

    Snap presidential poll & a general election on the same day as the local government elections?

  54. garawi says:

    TNA is the party who prevented other tamils opposing the LTTE holding meetings in Jaffa peninsula. They openly invited the LTTE to TNA meetings and screened LTTE war films on stage. There is no doubt that TNA has given up separatist intentions. Beaten militarily now they are tredding a safe path towards Ealam with the help of the LTTE remnants in the west. TNA need to be kept under check and control to prevent another unnecessary war and save peace hard earned peace.

  55. Amir says:

    Army did a great job.

    This is fantastic. Tamils TNA deserve it,

  56. S. C. Pasqual says:

    DBSJ.

    This can’t be a isolated incident.
    We don’t get reports in Colombo.
    There should be a background leading to this incident.
    There must be some other players…

  57. TRN says:

    The elections are a doom to N&E. whenever an election takes place pre-election violence & unlawfulness becomes to the peak.

    unless the TNA shows some pro govt stand this will be the norm in Jaffna. I do hope the President will intervene and act wisely if he wants to win the heart & vote of the North.

    The army is used for political reasons not to safe guard national security.

    DBSJ, Please do write more details of Jaffna situ so all of us will come to know the truth.

    I plead with the authorities do not bring more trouble to these war affected regions & people. Let there be law & order. Try to win over TNA & the northern people in a democratic way. Don’t let the devilish oppression to be unleashed in N&E.

    Why would I be happy with this situation? I hoped that the claims of genocide was just exaggerations by LTTE supporters, but you can’t argue with video evidence.

    Needn’t get too excited about this incident pal,

    Wonder whether Mr Macrae and CH4 slipped in a few high resolution MP cameras into the TNA pockets , as the ones in Jaffna wouldn’t be that clear .specially in the dark.

    I am sure the Tiger Diaspora is praying for a another 83

    Wouldn’t that be the best opportunity for the Tiger Diaspora to marshal the pro Tiger Poms to go in with their Harriers and their Apaches.

    Wouldn’t that be a another golden opportunity to stop deportations and get PR for all the sus refugees in detention camps ?

    Govt is not that naive mate, to offer any opportunity to the tigers dressed as the TNA.

    By the way I am still going through all that you were kind enough to provide.

    If what you claim is correct then how come you the opposition and the civil society and your colonial masters has failed to dislodge the patriot Sri Lankans from protecting and voting one elction after another the present brave leadership? The popularity and gratefulness of people who love this country is unquestionable. It is bound to get stronger even more now and more in the future.

    Pehaps the battered and bruised so called opposition (Local Western aligned parties, NGO,kalu Suddas, LTTE rump, the Colonial cousins who need a exit strategy in Iraq and Afghanistan,shall need one to cover their nakedness. You can cry about accountability and bash your heads on rocks and roll on the ground, but life goes smoothly in Sri Lanka and majority are happy and that irritates the detractors. Why not try a facebook, twitter type revolution? Why was it tried and failed in Iran?

  81. Christy Rajasuriar says:

    They say ‘power corrupts, and absolute power, corrupts absolutely’, that in short is the scenario in Lanka politics.It is not too late for the head of state to read ‘Liberty in the modern state’ by Harold J.Laski.In the words of Laski, “Iternal vigilance is the price of Liberty”, this the people neglected and hence chaos.

  83. Dr Mervyn Silva PhD says:

    This has to be condemned in no uncertain terms and rightly so.

    Once again the this brutality proves my point that the nation building process has been perverted and we have a state structure which continue to opress all democratic rights of the people.

    The family may or may not have anything to do with this sttack however the fact of the matter is that the state continue to deny the basic human rights to people. The recent attack on workers in Free Trade Zone is one example. State brutality knows no bounds.

    We will sadly see more attacks on people irrespective of their race, party affiliation, etc for demanding and exercising their democratic rights.

  84. NE Tamils says:

    It seems to well planed attack on Unarmed Tamil Civilians and Members of Tamil Parlimantarian by Army after gathering information from their intelligent wing about the meeting. As TNA said no permission need for such a meeting & Army not in the position to punish them while courts and so called “Law” is there. It shows Mahinda hidden agenda to threaten Tamil politicians as many time he verbally abused ‘Tamil Mps’ who carying the voice from Tamils, Typical Sinhala mentality and donkeys who carried out this kind of attacks on civilians never learned anything from past.

  85. Suresh says:

    “Meanwhile Northern Army commander Maj-Gen Hathurusinghe has denied the incident & refuted TNA charges, according to some media reports”

    How can he deny this incident and refute the charges if Maj- Gen Janaka Walgama GOC 51 Division & Director General of Defense Intelligence has already tendered an apology?

    Does this mean the Northern Army Commander is clueless as to what is going on under his command… or is he just turning a Nelsonian eye?

  96. Cicero says:

    Gen. Hathurusinghe says he knew nothing of the incident. The GOC 51st Division has tendered an apology! Strange that the left hand does not know what the right hand is doing!

  100. Sadun says:

    Dushy, you are not accountable, you can post any stupid comment.

    How does the army knows the people meeting are party members? TNA did not adhered to the instructions given, should have taken permission or given notice. They wanted to show arrogance. SL came out of decades of terrorism and if the MPs had exercised some prudence this could have been avoided. In any case the Commander went there and apologised. accepting and moving forward or rejecting and dragging people back to dark ages is MPs choice. Chose wisely.

    DBSJ RESPONDS:

    May I point out that all persons including you are not “accountable” in posting comments which is why so many people post bovine excreta under pseudonyms.

    As for Mr. Dushy Ranetunge he is one of the few who post comments under his own name on this blog. That itself is praiseworthy. It would be good if you could post comments under your real name before reprimanding Dushy

  101. Sadun says:

    If only prabakaran resigned after the Kebithigollewa Massacre, we would be having a case precedent.

  102. Sadun says:

    The TNA had not informed the govt of the meeting and therefore it could be of anything in the eyes of the authorities, from an election meeting to a one trying to revive the terrorism again. If you chose to remember there were TNA MPS who openly supported the terrorist LTTE and called for the separation of the country. SO if TNA wants to act irresponsibly they should expect things like this.

  103. Sadun says:

    The army got this much bigger is due to the terrorism of the ltte for 3 decades and so expect the army to be there for some more years. If the army is moved out who knows who will emerge to take control of the area, there are remnant of ltte lying low and there may be south indian smugglers hiding in too. and the Sri Lankan Army can be at any part of Sri Lanka for any given period of time. if you don’t like it leave sri lanka take a boat and go west, with a mobile video too recorded if not from jaffna then from a demonstration in the south, might be useful.

  104. Jivaka Jayasundera says:

  105. Kumara says:

    S.C.pasqual

    Start writing in SINHALA news papers;
    ———————————————-
    Are you joking.Whose going to publish the truth in srilanka and end up like the 20 media men who have been killed by this govt and the countless number who have been severely assaulted and run abroad. Even pradeep eheliyagoda is missing since the presidential election,apparently for writing a mildly critical article about the government.

    When the local media is shut up there is no choice but to go to foreign media and other foreign people for relief to see that it does not happen again.This is the second time that tamil representatives are attacked after the assasination attempt on sridaran.

    When the LTTE was there the sinhalese were complaining that tamils are supporting a ruthless terrorist organisation and not their democratic representatives. When the democratic representattives hold a satyagraha or meeting they are violently attacked by the government.So what do the sinhalese want?Do they want tamils to forget about democracy and start working clandestinely against the government.Or do they want tamils to faithfully follow the democratic path regardles of the fact that their representatives will end up one day like the sinhalese media personnel. Or do they want the tamils to neither follow democracy nor clandestine operations against srilanka,and just be voteless,voice less people like the sinhalese are slowly but surely being made into. If past history is anything to go by the average tamil person will take less crap from the govt,than the average sinhalese,who will prefer to save his skin than to fight back against violence.I’am pretty sure that after that boy was killed in katunayake,thats the end of any demonstrations. As for the tamils these thuggery parts will not work to break their spirit.

  108. shankar says:

    He always vanishes after organising the violence. I remember when he gave the order to massacre the remaining civilians in the no fire zone in the last few days of the war,he was in jordan.The reason for the visit was a trivial one and no head of state will go for such a reason when something very important is happening.He must be thinking the rest of the world is dumb asses.

    manju

    TNA says it was not a public meeting and no need to get permission.It was only for members of their party.So that excuse by the army does not arise.

    However i’am wondering about one thing.If you are a member of a organisation,you are still a member of the public aren’t you?If it was only the office bearers of the party it is okay,but if a large number come in TNA should have contacted the army at least,prior to having the meeting.

    If the military does not grant permission,then you could protest.You can’t break laws. In the current environment of tension,the TNA has to only take the phone and clarify with the army commander in the north whether members of the party will be considered as members of the public too. I’am sure the first question the army commander would have asked is how many are coming.

    However using thuggish army types to behave in such a fashion is not the way a civilized country behaves.Reminds me of the navy fellows just killing the tamilnadu fishermen and saying problem solved now.The shortsighted fools don’t realise how badly they are damaging the image of the country.That is what happens when brawn starts to lead the brain.Today i think people with brains are confined to the wastebasket,and we are having a all brawn and no brain leading the country. In fact i think suresh premecahndran on far right in the picture is having satisfied look on his face.

    Just like the fishermen,if the TNA has broken the law go and arrest them by all means.Not use thuggery.Trying to instill the respect for the law in this country seems to be a futile exercise. Even foreighn direct investment will not come in if there is no respect for the laws,because foreighners will alsways wonder whether they will get bashed up if they have a dispute with the government regarding their assets.

    TNA = LTTE…. TNA took refuge in Colombo during Velu’s ltte time and acted as their mouth piece for the fear of a bullet on the back of their head. Only, Sangaree had the guts to speakout & plead.
    Now, TNA is attempting to create a CULT in Jaffna ??
    This is what happens when they take up the trumphets from the Diasspora who are looking for scapegoats.

    If devananda was behind it, it is a sad event.
    A DOG eat DOG situation among the Tamils again.

    First it was Velu & the LTTE killing Tamil Professionals, Intellectuals, Politicians, Govt Servants, ect.,
    Now its TNA Tamil Politicians….. Situation has taken a turn for the better…. No other VIPs.

  123. Nobee Perera says:

    Biggest war crime in this century by Americans and UK. They still killing innocent unarmed civilians in Afghanistan and Iraq. Now, innocent unarmed civilians are killing by American in Libya. UN given licence to USA, UK and NATO forces to kill innocent civilians in this world? Any war crime against George Bush and Tony Blair? Truth is bitter in this world? Millions of unarmed Vietnamese killed by who?

  124. Senna says:

    This is not limited to any party or locality. Since Jayawardene presidency in 1977, resorting to violence is a norm in politics in Sri lanka. However ethnic tolerance among people is high except in North and East where Tamils do not like other communities including Tamils of Islam faith

  125. S.Yogi says:

    Tamils asked the government in the democratic way for first 30 years from 1948 – 1978, than the LTTE stared with guns to demand the rights of Tamils (I believe sinhala government only understand).

    At least you are right about “Tamils will never be treated as equals, they will always be treated as a conquered people. A separate state may be an impossibility now but through these injustices it will eventually become inevitable.

    The term genocide seemed to be an exaggeration before but with all the mounting evidence and the continued oppression, the truth has been revealed”.

    If there any humanity left in the world, than there will be justice & Peace for Tamils & Sinhalese in Sri Lanka.

    I will fight for my Tamil people’s Justice, Peace & Freedom until I die, you can bet on that.

    As for this incident, it’s the same thing over and over….nothing has changed, long fought ethnic war thought our southern siblings nothing. Again I say and sad incidents tell us tamils have lost everything, no one to care for them, no one to question the atrocities unleashed on them. As many here proudly wishing for a united Sri Lanka, your actions invite more trouble and unrest amoung us – regardless of your ethnic back ground. It’s sad, indisciplined security forces and uncontrollable politicians are leading the asian pearl to another hell. Then again, can the tamils in North & East do anything or raise queries against mojority South? Something my southern brothers/sisters must come to terms. LTTE is no more, please understand that. Stop looking tamils as your enemies, let them live in peace. Stop constantly harrassing tamils, the more you harrass the more disaster is you are calling upon. Harms may not come from tamils but it’ll definitely come from world powers who are waiting to land in this strategic location.
    Dear TRN, i can understand your bold statements here but are majority of your people listening to you? or do they have the mindset as you?

This is something people like you must think on.
    This is for all the anti-Tamil Diaspora or Diaspora bashers,
    Why worry about diaspora if you can treat your citizens good? Why would those citizens welcome diaspora support if their own government treat them equal? First, treat your own brothers/sisters good then you’ll not have to worry a thing about diaspora or others. Many here wine like ladies on their monthly about diaspora and how they want to disrupt the peace in the nation, you must take care of your own things such as treating your follow citizens equally and fight for them united. Once you start doing that, your own brothers/sisters in your backyard (north&east) won’t give a darn about what the outsiders gotta say.
    First send someone to the power with good intentions who will actually bring peace to the nation. Your wrong selection/elected person leaves many with so much to say at world stage. Not only that, these fools comments on world media makes the world turn against you.
    It’s crystal clear that security forces were indisciplined and mass killings, rapes were committed against Tamils. Address it rather than dening it like bunch of clowns. It reminds me of african leaders who managed make their people eat rats where as the same nation used to export food. If these leaders don’t live up to simple standards, people like us should stand up and fight against the corrupt government that we have in power. Don’t expect tamils because Tamils have absolutely no power in North & East. It’s the southern brothers and sisters who must stand up and encourage the battered/beaten tamils to join. Tamils will/may forgive, but forgetting will be unimaginable. I am sure all of us remember what JRJ said, “the more hardship i put on tamils, more happy Sinhala nation will be….”.
    If many want to attack my write up with LTTE nonsense, then i’ll just think that i’ve just wasted 10 mins of my precious time…..!! Because LTTE is no more, and my write up is about tamils & sinhalas in a united frame!
    DBSJ, please continue your work……and thank you!!

Those who are in the aforementioned disciplines of study could enlighten us whether my proposal is viable or not.

    In addition , guess what,

    US Ambassador calls the MOD even before the TNA MPs made the complaint to the police.

    German Ambassador did the same when the JVP organized the ambush at FTZ.

    The plot thickens really fast.

    The great majority of peace loving people who are enjoying their freedom from terror and social harmony must take note of these developments.

    They must be on guard 24/7 to this ever increasing threat emmnating from the West and , organized by the LTTE Diaspora and their Srilankan stooges to destabize the country at any cost.

    They must avoid giving them free kicks .

    DBSJ RESPONDS:

    Looks like the US and German embassies are more concerned and keenly aware of the perilous state of democracy in Sri Lanka than the MOD.

  169. rajesrajah says:

    The disturbing elements were army personal.In a democratic society where laws are upheld this scenario seems to be that the law of democracy was broken by the Government that hasten to say that they hold the democracies high standards and abide by every rule it contains.So they ran amok amongst peacefull TNA members whose chair was speaking.There was no rioting nor hooliganism by the people in the hall.There was absolutely no necessaity to wield their steel rods,poles and wielding the butts of guns thrashing people.
    The commander seems to having a set of babrbarians trained as special task force.
    1.The TNA members are aleady members of Parliament with the body guards.Does the army have the right to thrash them and redicule these members of Parliament?
    2.Lack of education for the army goons shows clearly that these goons can only speak through steel rods and poles.
    The commander should have sent a team to speak to the chair of the TNA presiding or to the TNA members.If laws were violated that there were more people the meeting could have been ordered to close down.These respeted TNA members of parliament have been insulted by the government itself.
    No reconciliation take place if the defense is of the view that they can wield there stupidity with steel rods and poles and butts.Now they are on a hunt from house to house in Alaveddy.The government is going no where on their search for Peace and reconciliation.

    Well in this country they have. IF that is illegal according to the constitution,then take it up with the courts,without just creating unnecessary tensions.We have to tell the sinhalese to also respect the law,and at the same time do it ourselves too.We can’t just go and confront the military as and when we choose to.They have set up some rules and if we don’t like it we should take the matters up legally or with foreign organisations or with the government itself. Confrontational politics must be sent into the dustbin of history,because it achieves nothing except violence and then retaliation.

    I just finished reading shyam selvadurai’s funny boy.I was taken aback after knowing the horrors that had unraveled in the very streets in colombo we live. i wonder how many Arjies were there, how many radhas were there. i feel ashamed, deceived. i wonder how i can meet Tamils in my day to day life again without a feeling of shame. They must be spirited ppl to endure all those things and still live in SL. i was not born when the 1983 riots had happended. but i remember my mother telling me how she had to walk amidst dead bodies, burnt vehicles while being pregnant with me. Still I hated the LTTE for the terror thay onleashed on my country men, for all those who had died in suicide bombings but nw i wonder what i would have done had i been a Tamil. I have never read a single sinhala news paper article showing the bitterness of the mob attacks lashed at Tamil. The few i had read always talked about how sinhala ppl protected them during the wild times as if to console their own troubled concsiosness. I know sinhala ppl are beginning to understand this specially the youth bt some times i wonder whther we have passed the point of no return. now i do not hate the idea of separatism as i did before. onething i knew our older generations fu**d up evry thing. The most problematic thing is sinhala ppl specially sinhala newspaper readers do not have much knowedge abt what happens in the country. I wonder how many of ordinary sinhala ppl knw what channel 4 is. I hope they act responsibly at least nw.we dont have responsible and wise leaders and we never had.

    IGP gave orders to police.They did not follow it.Honourable man that he is he retired.

    A district judge had an altercation with a army fellow in the middle of the road,and he got assaulted.

    This is not bhutan with 800000 people but a country of 22 million.These kind of incidents are bound to happen.

    The point you don’t want to see is that the TNA could have always picked up the phone and talked to the northern army commander before having the meeting.

    Your memory is very short indeed that these guys were at one time known as Tiger Nominated Agents who licked the backsides of the LTTE.

    Naturally the army is deeply suspicious of them.They crushed the LTTE and as far as they are concerned this is unfinished business where the TNA is concerned.

    So TNA has to be more careful in the way they handle things.Just because they have been allowed to continue democratically from where they were supporting the undemocratic LTTE they can’t take things for granted and not follow the rules laid down by the army for gatherings of their people etc.

    US Federal Court summons SL leader Saturday, 18 June 2011 01:04
    Govt. says not ruffled by decision

    By Susitha R. Fernando

    A United States Federal Court has issued summons on President Mahinda Rajapaksa in connection with three civil cases filed under the Hague Convention claiming monetary damages under US Torture Victims Protection Act (TVPA) over alleged extra-judicial killings, the Justice Ministry sources said.

    Sources said the government was not overly ruffled by this decision, and would not respond to it.

    The civil cases against the Sri Lankan President were filed in Washington DC and the petitioners were seeking US$30 million as damages on six counts of violating the TVPA.

    The summons on the President have been served on the Justice Ministry Secretary who is the Sri Lankan Central Authority in accordance with the provisions of The Hague Convention, to which the US and Sri Lanka are signatories.

    The three cases were filed by the relatives of students Ragihar Manoharan, Premas Anandarajah, a humanitarian aid worker for Action against Hunger and T. Thavaraja. The petitioners claimed the students were victims of the extra judicial killings in Sri Lanka. They have cited President Mahinda Rajapaksa who is the Commander–in-Chief of Sri Lankan armed forces as the respondent.

    The petitioners have alleged multiple violations of the TVPA under Sri Lankan President Rajapaksa’s command responsibility for the extrajudicial killing of plaintiff Dr. Kasippillai Manoharan’s son Ragihar, plaintiff Kalaiselvi Lavan’s husband Premas Anandarajah, and four members of the Thevarajah family, who were relatives of plaintiff Jeyakumar Aiyathurai.Ragihar was one of the five students allegedly killed in January 2006 while Anandarajah was one of the 17 Action Against Hunger (ACF) staff members who were killed during the war in the East in June 2006. Jeyakumar’s relatives were allegedly killed by an exploding shell that landed inside the safety bunker — situated around the No Fire Zone demarcated by the government during the last phases of the war — where the family was hiding from the artillery attacks by the Sri Lankan Army.

    Under International Law, cases can be filed on the offences under war crimes, genocide, crimes against humanity and waging war against countries without reasonable cause.

    The petitioners will argue the cases on the basis that universal jurisdiction under international law should also be recognized in civil suits founded on the Torture Victims Protection Act outlining torture or extrajudicial killings.

    While the LTTE was reigning supreme in the North and the East, no political party other than the TNA was allowed to do political work there. Worse, the TNA politicians campaigning for democracy and human rights today accepted the murderous LTTE as the sole representative of the Tamil people and had no qualms about acting as its mouthpiece in Parliament much to the consternation of the victims of terrorism. But, it must be stressed that the TNA’s right to engage in democratic politics and voice dissent must be recognised and safeguarded at any cost in spite of its abominable past.

  207. TRN says:

    Some readers generalise and blame the Sinhalese, it’s not fair at all. Please stick to the perpetrators only, there are good and bad in every ethnicity.

    Common Sinhalese people were given bias/partial news all these years by successive governments and were unaware of the truths. Thanks to the electronic media now, they have access to the truths.

    I am appalled by this news and the reported behavior of the Srilanka military staff. SLA in particular and Srilankan people in general should understand that, it was the Indian non-Interference MILITARILY in Srilanka , that in reality, brought victory to them in the so called EELAM WAR 4. This in ample measure has been mentioned , of course, in diplomatic language, by none other than the MOD OF Srilanka itself. Infact , if Indians face north, and give a collective FART, Srilanka will move few kms south in India ocean. IF SLA forgets this and acts arrogantly, it will get a chilly stick up in it’s ass. After all , there ,definately, may not be another ‘Rajive Gandhi’ to save Srilanka from India’s ire just in case. Remember ‘ LIBERATION OF BANGLADESH’.

    Jayathilaka,

    83 backlash on tamils is a very unfortunate .You mother may have not told you the background of it.Ask her why and how it happened? The TNA (then TULF) and LTTE should bear the bigger part of responsibility for the 83 riot.They made the background for it by sending dead bodies of sinhala youth to colombo and by telling they wanted kill all Sinhalese people .Amirthalingams wife has once said they want to make slippers from sinhalese skin.Still these people have not learn and still spreading hate and racism.
    The TNA should stop racial politics .This will bring only disasters to every body including tamils .

  227. Dr Kumarakuru Vasanthi says:

    this is what happened before 1983 WHICH MADE ALL TAMILS TOGETHER ,

    This is clear demonstaration that SLA and its political masters would not understand democratic language.
    you are right they reply will be by next generation who are witnessing this like the ones who witnessed before 1983.

    by the behaviour LIKE THIS they are planting very healthy seeds for next confrontation this time ,

    they harvested for the seeds planted in 1948, 1956 , 1977 , 1983…
    they begged the world FOR help , the world did not believe Tamils cry. indeed world helped them.

    next stage tamils and the world will be marching together …….by this type of action Tamil Ellam is only solution that is what they say not tamils

    DBSJ

    Can you perhaps clarify something on the MSD personnel/police bodyguards who were badly injured protecting the TNA MP’s please?

    Were they us nasty, bad, genocidical Sinahlese, or brave, blameless and heroic tamil victims again who would never hurt a fly? Just wondering..

    Not that I care particularly, but there seems to be an awful lot of people commenting on the ethnicity of the army culprits…

    Not that I am condoning the actions of this group of soldiers, but it’s a bit like the whole war crimes issue. If bashing the TNA was an army policy, there would not be one single TNA’er left standing – just like if killing POW’s was an army policy – there would not have been 11,000 POW’s in a rehablitation camp..

    There are bad apples everywhere. The army soldiers who were responsible for this, and the soldiers who were responsible for the war crimes, should be investigated and brought to justice instead of blanket denials. That is mistake this government always makes – Protecting those who do not deserve the protection, and trying to justify the unjustifiable. From Vermin Silva to the soldiers in the videos. When will they ever learn.

    this is what happened before 1983 WHICH MADE ALL TAMILS TOGETHER ,

    This is clear demonstaration that SLA and its political masters would not understand democratic language.

    by these behaviour LIKE THIS they are planting very healthy seeds for next confrontation this time ,

    they harvested for the seeds planted in 1948, 1956 , 1977 , 1983…
    they begged the world FOR help , the world did not believe Tamils cry. indeed world helped them.

    next stage tamils and the world will be marching together …….

    Ok…

    I am posting a earlier comment by me.

    If you ever wants to win your rights you have to win it withe the Sinhalese masses. Not by going against them. I am not talking about S L Government but ordinary people. That’s what happened in USA or South Africa.

    Try to understand why Palatines are in a lost struggle with a genuine problem.

    We have to understand couple of things.

    This is the most popular (may be most liberal) SL government ever elected.

    We have Vasudewa Nanayakkara, Thissa Witharana / Wimal Weerawansa / Champika Ranawaka, Udaya Gammanpila / G. L. Peiris, Milinda Moragoda / Mervin Silwa, Paba / Malini Fonseka, Sanath Jayasuriya / S. B. Disanayaka, Bandula Gunawardana / Daglas Dewananda, Karuna Amman in the same cabinet.

    Start a dialog in Colombo if you ever want to win your rights. Start writing in SINHALA news papers; start conveying your massage in Colombo, not in Switzerland or Iceland or South Africa.

    Try to convince Sinhala majority if you have a genuine problem just because you are a Tamil citizen.

    Try to convince Sinhala politicians like Vasu or Thissa Witharana to start a dialog in the parliament.

    Can you visualize John Lennon doing his “”Bed In”” singing “”Give Pease a Chance”” with a A K 47 in hand.

    Can you visualize Martin Luther King delivering “”I have a Dream”” with a RPG over his shoulder.

    LTTE have effectively wiped out your giant leaders in the same caliber as above like Kadiragamar or Neelan Thiruchelwam or Rajini Thiranagama.

    Wish you luck.

This is something people like you must think on.

    Dear Neru,

    I will not call my self bold but I will say I speak the truth.

    I have no intention ‘to put away the black dots posted on the security forces and government’.

    I do have respect to the majority of the armed forces who were committed in their battle with the LTTE. However we Sri Lankans do not expect them to act like political thugs. The army will not act on its own unless been commanded.

    Also we have to appreciate the effort taken by MSD police to protect the TNA MPs.
    http://www.island.lk/index.php?page_cat=article-details&page=article-details&code_title=28006

    About the ‘Sri Lankan mindset’ – yes many have similar opinion as mine. Most of the Sri Lankans are fed up with politicians & their politics that ruin our nation. Every one wants to see corruption free society, law & order in place.

    I also want to add that I am very sad to see how the tamil diaspora disrepute our nation. I am proud of my country & proud to be a Sri Lankan.

    Our country by itself is perfect. However the politicians have ruined it. We need to preserve our country for the greater good of our children. We have got a 2nd chance, I do not like to see it slipping away due to short sighted politics.

    Tamils should never allow IPKF to come in again. In their short tenure they were worse than the srilankan army.
    Tamils will ask for a UN peacekeeping force,even a small symbolic token force if things become unbearable in the future.These kind of thuggery actions by the army will only play into the hands of those who may be working towards such an objective.

    However if she said it her mouth is adding fuel to the fire.This is uncultured uncivilised talk of people who have come up from the gutter.If she or that sinhalese politician came from a good family background you won’t talk like That.

    For you to justify the july 83 riots, not much difference between you and gundas that did it. Before the riots LTTE=50.Three years after the riots LTTE=5000.So who was the chief recruiting agent for the LTTE?Gundas?JR?

    Forget about bangladesh mate. That suited india’s geopolitical interest. Making the tamils friendly and having the sinhalese unfriendly does not suit its geopolitical interest.That is why they are trying to get a political solution,so that both will not be unfriendly towards it.

    I will be amazed if india pokes its nose again into srilanka. Every time it did that it had a more headaches than it bagained for. The best thing for it is to concentrate on its own economy and military and build it up to counter china one day.IF it does that india will be unrecognisable by the end of this decade.

    We have to encourage people to follow the democratic path,which is the correct one,regardless of what their beliefs were at one time. Are you saying that TNA should not be allowed to change their beliefs for the better. If people don’t have faith in them they will be consigned anyway to the scrap heap in a democratic process eventually.

    See how in nepal the maoist guerilla are now running the country democratically.

    Ultimately let the people decide who they want.That is democracy,not what you are preaching here.tamils have to accept the rajapakshes as the sinhala people’s representatives and sinhalese have to accept TNA as tamil people’s representatives.

    it seems 50 percent say that DMK lost because of family rule.Rings a bell here too.

    seems like tamilnadu people satisfied with the way DMK handled the tamil issue across the palk strait,but angry with the central government.This shows that people feel that the chief minister cannot do much if the central govt policy is pro srilankan govt.

    From the poll it is plain as a pikestaff that people in tamilnadu put their problems ahead of the problems of their brethren here. Unlike the muslims tamils are a divided race.They will first think of themselves first and then a fellow tamil,whereas muslims will first think of a fellow muslim even at the other end of the globe,and then only think of themselves. Their religion has made them like that,first priority to islam.Where you live does not matter.They have not forgotten the muslims in kashmir,only thing they are very overextended at the moment in other parts of the world.Once they are freed up they will come full force on to kashmir.Then the tamils in tamilnadu can tell the northindian,you did not care for our fellows in srilanka,now the muslims and kashmir are your problem.We have good relationship with our muslim brothers and sisters.

    We keep calling ourselves indian tamils,jaffna tamils,batticaloa tamils,clombo tamils,south african,malaysian etc. Now the latest fad is Uk tamils,canadian tamils etc.

    And unlike muslims who have no caste,we will call ourselves vellala tamils,karayar tamils and god knows what else castes.

    A very divided race indeed. You might as well throw the 80 million figure into the sea.

    The first thing the tamils all over the world should do is organise a world tamil organisation. Then they should prepare a charter that sets forth principles eradicating all forms of divisions among tamils and see that people adhere to it.Also they should have rules like in the koran that says every tamil is oblighed to help his brethren anywhere in the globe.If he does not he is welcome to not call himself or herself a tamil anymore and leave the organisation.

    What the muslims did through religion the tamils can do through an organisation and administration of it.

    I do not deny that LTTE too is responsible for the violence that had spread through out the island for 30 yrs. The problem here is the SL government failed (or more correctly deliberately) to protect the Tamil lives. When a section of a country’s population is subject to harassment and persecution by mobs through out the island and the gov couldn’t take actions against it, it seems we did not have a gov at all. The problem is did gov do anything concrete to save the Tamils lives in riots from 1955 to 1983. The answer is nothing. Were those mobs punished? i havent heard of any. Do not thnk i am an LTTE sympathiser, bt i am with the Tamil ppl on this issue. We sinhala ppl did nothing concrete to help the Tamils or rather were blind spectators. It is shameful that violent mobs can come and kill ppl living among us and we are blind spectators. I knw as a sinhalese most among us are not racists on an individual level but we did nothing or very little to help them against sinhala racist mobs and politicians. Still we dont.

    There are no ‘Tamils’ but Sri Lankans in Sri Lanka.

    First and foremost You accept and respect that first. Never demean MotherLanka or its guardians.

    A good start would be to getting rid of the word ‘Tamil’ from names of all “Tamil” political parties in Sri Lanka. Start with ‘Sri Lanka’… and make sure you sing ‘namo namo matha’ at each gathering, with righ hand on your chest.

    Try that for 150 years… and you will find a Tamil speaking Sri Lankan of Kadir calibre elected as the proud president in Sri Lanka, by all Sri Lankans

    Or just continue to flush toilets after screaming ’3 cheers to Tamil Elaam”.. and continue to be doormats to the crooks in the West.

    I want to stop that… because that would be disasterous to all Sri Lankans.

  287. jayathilaka says:

    i do not deny that LTTE too is responsible for the violence that spread across the island for 30 years. But in communal riots the gov were incapable or deliberately failed to protect the Tamil lives. The riots had been in SL from 1956 to 1983. In all those cases gov did not function as a gov. In 1983 one would even wonder whether we had a gov at all. The point is gov did not protect a section of the population when they were subject to harassment and abuse or more correctly planned terrorist attacks by mobs. being a sinhalese i too am aware that most sinhalese are not racists, but we could not standup to sinhala racists and protect Tamil brethren. It is sad but we had been blind spectators and still we are. i think it is in our sinhala psyche that when somebody torture our own ppl, abuse our ppl take away our rights and steal our own public property we remain spectators. That is something our politicians have found very useful. We do not resist. They take us for a ride. They have been doing this for 60 years and i think that is pretty long. We need to change ourselves and be more responsible.

    Another thing is how come sinhala mobs are justified for all the violence just because LTTE sent 13 bodies. Are we that stupid? You ask what my mother said about the background of it, well she said the story of 13 soldiers and i asked her what did the sinhala public do to protect the Tamils in 1983.Then she asked me what can we do? well we really need to change ourselves.

  288. jayathilaka says:

    I too have heard this amirthalingam’s wife’s story yet i am not sure. Still we have nt acted the way we should have. Not only TNA all race based politics should be abandoned. But the thing is we sinhalese cant blame the TNA solely as sinala politicians and public created the necessity for a race based political party from Tamil’s side. We failed to identify the difference between sri lanka and sinhala. Tamils are a part of sri lanka, and thinking sri lanka = sinhala is wrong.

    TRN,

    Yes, education and job creation should take precedence.It should be implemented in such a manner that it does not discriminate against the majority Sinhalese. There are plenty of online courses in IT and other fields in USA which are internationally recognized. The government could negotiate with these companies to establish these courses in Sri Lanka.Once the youth are engaged, the government has essentially eradicated terrorism and military rule becomes unnecessary.

    What took you so long.Busy reading the aryacakaravarthy lineage on the link i gave you. Now your sinhala twin samarasekera will take 2 weeks to go through it.

    I know that TNA informed the police,but i don’t know whether they got permission.However how come the police were there to protect them if they had not got permission.I think police and army are both competing with each other to do the same jobs.

    you may be right about janarthanan. I remember his name figuring prominently in that incident as a person of interest to the police. Some sort of radical i believe from tamilnadu or someplace.When the police came towards him his supporters threw bottles at them and police fired.

    However in both that as well as this incident,you don’t use a sledgehammer to whack cockroaches. You will damage the floor.

    need 2 hands to clap. If we in Sri Lanka are doing our duty towards postwar reconciliation genuinely, TTD will not be a threat at all.

    Don’t be gullible, all what is happening internationally against Sri Lanka is due to the shortsighted politics. MR completely mishandled the external affairs and the UNSG pleas. He has not kept his word.

    Did the west listen to TTD during 2008-9 when they had mass demos asking to stop the war?
    Why are they listening now when there is no war?

    Respectfully you are making a lot of assumptions here. My school motto is ‘country before self’. Always tried to live by that.

    Never followed a leader, or group blindy and unquestioningly for 30 years like some people we know (ahem)

    Never voted for this government. Never will do in the future. But the reality is majority of people did

    And the bottom line is they did a job that no previous government managed to do for the last 30 years – at a great cost to all.

    For that they will have mine and most peoples support, especially when an equally hypocrtical west and tamil diaspora try to beat down on them, purely driven by revenge and not justice or to make the tamils peoples life better.

    Come next election time – I will again vote against them however. There are many aspects of this government I find very distateful.

    But for now…

    hahaha very funny LKsword, a kid escaped from Angoda. I am sure you are aware of that place. You get yourself to defend yourself in another name? an example of democracy. This is what you call democracy, but it can also be called abuse of democracy. Anyways, mother lanka belongs to all sri lankans, NOT ONLY FOR SINHALA AND BUDDISTS.
    My write up was completely about unified Sri Lanka, not attacking my fellow sinhala brothers and sisters. My attack/concern was where the asian pearl is being lead by corrupted politicians and how it is being portrayed in world stage and what is waiting to happen. You must calm yourself down before expressing your thoughts on this blog.
    This blog was created to bring harmony between all Sri Lankans. It was created for a good cause to bring an understanding between all sri lankan communities.
    You must understand and learn to accept Sri Lanka is for Sri Lankans, NOT ONLY FOR SINHALA BUDDISTS. Once you start accepting that with your small brain, many issues of yours will definitely clear up.

    eelam citizen

    From 1947 srilanka has had the following primeministers/presidents
    1.DS Senenayake
    2.Sir john kotalawela.
    3.SWRD
    4.Sirimavo
    5.Dudley
    6.sirimavo again.
    7.JR
    8.premedasa
    9.DB Wijetunge
    10.chandrika
    11.mahinda

    So because of democracy people were able to change the leaders and elect whom they wish when they were not satisfied with them.

    I know it is not perfect especially after bringing in the presidential system giving vast powers to one individual and devaluing the parliament.Srilankans should be clamouring to get rid of it,which they are not doing yet.

    however you can see it is better than a dictatorship,where you could get landed with a guy for most of your lifetime. In the middleast where the current dictators are getting toppled one by one an average person there would have only seen one leader in their entire lifetime.

    We have at least seen 10 so far in 60 years.WE will get better quality leadrs in the future because democracy gets better and better with time like old wine.You have to be patient with it.

    Tamil is a language, tamils ,an ethnic group, are tamil speaking people living in northern and eastern part of Sri Lanka. First i thought you are pouring out of frustration and inability to solve your inner issues, now i realized you lack basic knowledge of asian pearl. Let’s take it easy LKS, i do not want to say anything to hurt you, after all you are my fellow country man and i really want to consider you as my brother.
    Take a look at the responses you have thrown out and the replies you’ve got from many others. Many are making a mokery of you by callin names such as kasippu, kudu, escape from angoda. Come on young man, grow up….we need people like you to come out of the ancient narrow minded path and build up a peace full nation.
    Young man, tone yourself down…..stop blabbing, stop making a fool out of yourself, learn to earn some respect, be a smart man because Sri Lanka need wiser young men. Please don’t fall prey to these corrupted politicians who have been getting the maximum benefit of creating turmoil between Sinhala & Tamil speaking ethnic groups.
    Young man, show some love…..patiently wait and see what you get in return.
    I hope you get my message, and I trully hope that you won’t make feel waste my time.

    Are there any sinhalese or muslims in srilanka according to you?A simple answer without any sword wielding will suffice.Some times you talk so much the same thing, it gets boring.

  326. true sri lankan says:

    coming colours are not good .tamilnad,un,uk.
    so many invaders trying onslaught on sri lanka.
    Sri lankans should not let hard won peace go away.
    increase the military in all parts of sri lanka,settle more tamil speaking muslims in north taking from puttlam and other area.change the demography of north by sending more tamil speaking muslims to north.

  327. Lankan says:

    If such thing happen, we should investigate. But remember LTTE KILLED 600 UN ARMED POLICEMAN’S. Where are you at that time & where is the LAW you are talking? And LTTE video that incident & show their brutal activities for the world.

  328. Lankan says:

    We are not cleaning NORWAY , UK , AMERICA toilets like your tamil diaspora.

    WE did not pay money to RUSSIAN or CHINESE media like tamil diaspora done as CH4.

    Libya & Sudan case is different & NATO still struggle to catch Gadaffi.
    (Even NATO can not hit Gadaffi but civiliance.. )

    UK spend 100 million pounds in Libiyan war but no results.

    Now you understand Russians & Chinese truly support SL.

    They well known about LTTE brutal terrorists.

    This all credits going to former PM Mr.Kadiragarmar ( LTTE killed him too )

    Anyway Tamil diaspora now isolating from Western,European as well as their own Tamilians. True tamilian never support your fake tamil diaspora.

  329. Lankan says:

    Anyway Sinhala people should locate in North & East as tamils located in south.
    They should mix with their people culture. Then no chance for another brutal group like LTTE.

  330. TRN says:

    They did once directly, indirectly many times. ‘once bitten twice shy’

  331. TRN says:

    Jayathilaka says:
    We sinhala ppl did nothing concrete to help the Tamils or rather were blind spectators.
    ——————–

    Now this is a very wrong impression. There were many/// sinhala people who helped the tamils risking their own lives.
    I was a child but I very well remember how my parents helped their tamil friends.
    Also my uncle who was travelling from colombo by train, that day, brought home 2 young tamils. He had defended both, saying they are his brother & sister, not allowed them to talk to the mob. They were not even known to him. They stayed at my uncle’s home for few days until the troubles ceased.

    Majority of sinhalese condemned the mob brutality. It was impossible to stop a violent mob by the common people.

    I have spoken to many tamil victims about the 1983 riots. Many have overcome the bitterness and continued to live in Sri Lanka.

    They say, in their desperation many sinhalese helped them. Although they ran for their lives and lost their property, they don;t have bitterness because of the kindness shown by the common sinhala people.

    There are thousands of stories like this. So please do not condemn all the sinhalese, for the things were beyond their control. They were never ‘blind spectators’ they did every thing they could within their limits.
    As the majority of sinhalese resented this govt sponsored program,it was never repeated again.

    In the same vein I beg from hard core sinhalese don’t blame all the ills of LTTE on tamils either. Learn from the mistakes and correct the future course of events.

  332. TRN says:

    OK lets use from next time new nomenclature northern Sri Lankans, eastern Sri Lankans, southern Sri Lankans, Western Sri lankans, & central Sri lankans .

    thank you for your hind response.you know from 1947 itself and before that also because of this illegal kasippu how many tamils were killed. this is not saffer to drink how many tamil leaders said this truth? last batch Rasapaksa gave it to Prapaharan &co and to many innocents the lethal nature is proofed blenders may be different. the mahavamsa formula is same. I think matturity alone wont get rid of that ingredient. you know the DEMOCRATICALLY elected body of NEPC declared independant Eelam.that is also burried in our history I think that is also getting mattured because now it is smelling good. UN recomends this wine is safer to drink. If you love to have that old one dont take another risk. I like to tell these empees dont say “siva” “siva” while liking to have the same old kassipu.

    Because India acted, the way they did this time, you won Eelam war 4. It appears, you have woken up 2 years after the end of eelam war 4, read this blog, waa, shot a comment.

  342. Angan says:

    For ethnic mixing.

    very Agressively promote tamil/sinhalese intermarriage. It may be difficult to start( which tough task easy to start ?), If you spend even fraction of ,what you spend for acquring distructive weapons and ammunitions, that process can be started. In the beginning, it(Tamil/sinhala intermarriage) may start in tricles, but if u pursue it
    with dogged determination, it will become a flood. I was told that, Tamils form about 10% of total srilanka population. With determined persuit, it will not be difficult to absorb this in sinhala fabric.

    Don’t fire Canon and Kill life.

    Angan

    A traitor is a person who commits treason. Treason is defined as giving help to your countries enemy. Complaining about human rights violations in your country to a foreigners is not treason because they are not our countries enemy and we are not at war with them.We are merely asking them to put some sense into our government to rectify some wrongs done to our populace. So therefore mahinda taking up human rights issues with foreign governments during the JVP era does not bring him into the category of a traitor.
