Moses of Sri Lanka
Posted on June 15th, 2009

Prof. Hudson McLean

Many a country created its own “Moses”.
The British – Indian colonial war created Mahatma Gandhi.
The WW2 created Sir Winston Churchill to fight Adolf Hitler.
The South African Apartheid created Nelson Mandela..
The Tamil Tiger Terrorism created Mahinda Rajapaksa.  The Moses of Sri Lanka!

Mahinda Rajapaksa not only saved the Island of Sri Lanka from the Curse of the Tamil Tiger Terrorist, but also led the innocent Tamil civilians from bondage and terror into a better land.

Now that the Phase 1 is over, the difficult tasks of rehabilitation and rebuilding of the Nation has begun. With the remnants of Terrorists still mingling amongst the innocent Tamil civilians, the SLDF has a difficult task of screening the good from evil.

At this moment, the loud mouths from home and abroad have begun to express their “two cents” worth of “advice” which Moses should choose to ignore.

The SLG policy of banning the various Foreign Ministers who attempted to have a picnic in Sri Lanka at their tax payers money during economic emergency, was a Bold and a Beautiful move by the courageous SLG.

The only military force in the world to destroy a group of highly sophisticated Terrorists, who created murder and destruction, with the support of the Norwegian government and Ranil Wickremesingha of the United National Party of Sri Lanka, funded by the global Tamil Diaspora, was led by the Rajapaksa Trio of Sri Lanka.

Tamil citizens of Sri Lanka, who enjoy more than their fair share in the South, should now help their displaced brethren in the North. The Tamil Diaspora should now divert their millions of dollars to do the same. Now the Real Tamil Sympathisers should stand-up and be counted!

There is no Tamil North or Sinhala South. This North-South Divide ended on the 11th May 2009.  The Island belongs to all citizens of Sri Lanka, the Sinhala, Tamil, Burgher, Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Moslem and the population irrespective of prejudices.

Sri Lanka enjoys Democracy in the finest and fullest. There is no need for Devolution or any other format of Government. It is upto the Tamils to integrate into the main stream without the continuous “Chip-on-the-Shoulder” of being inferior.

The Class and the Caste should disappear with better education, where all parties are able to communicate. Both the Sinhala and the Tamil speaking populations should use the English medium as a compromise language, which will also ease the pain when travelling abroad.

And most important of all, Moses should take a firm hand on corruption which starts at the top of the ladder.  Name and Shame, and punish the corrupt politicians with strich legislature.

Take a leaf out of Singapore where corruption is the least of the problem.

Mahinda Rajapaksa could do down in history as the Moses of Sri Lanka!

    I fail to understand what Hudson McLean is trying to say.
    Moses should take a firm hand on corruption which starts at the top of the ladder. Are you trying to say that our President, top on the ladder in our country today is a currupt person? Do you have a single evidence in this respect. He has devoted his life to this country and your remarks hurt every citizen of this country

    I love your writing. Moses has started the war on drugs. He doesn’t give a damn to Western superpowers. Sri Lanka now has the best president, best cricket team, best army, navy and air force. Also the richest IDPs apparently. What more does one want!
    Thank you Sir.
