Oxford Union has cancelled the much sought address by President Rajapaksa due to security concerns. This is very interesting. Now where does this security threat come from? Neither the Oxford Union nor the Metropolitan Police has  failed to mention from where the security of President Rajapaksa is threatened.  Let us call a spade a spade and say that the LTTE supportive Diaspora in London  is the security concerned and surely  not Al Queda or Talibans.. You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to  know that it is the LTTE terrorist group operating in London and other parts of UK who is behind the security threat to President Rajapaksa. If there is a security threat to a head of any state, why can’t the Scotland yard/Metropolitan police hunt for those terrorists who are a security threat instead of mollycoddling them further.

    Yes, It is time Scotland Yard took an interest in hammering the nail on the head.

    No doubt, Scotland Yard has a good knowledge of the errant individuals and it is not far fetched assumption to assume that they were not allowed to exercise the professional integrity required in the past.

    We see in the Wilkileaks the former Foriegn Secretary had spent many hours to save the the face of cornered LTTE leaders to improve Labour electoral prospects forgetting in the process the responsibility and duty towards very existence of the fellow commonwealth country, Independent Soverign nation of Sri Lanka.

    Few terrorists based in London , are already behind bars in various countries. A Billionnaire financier is under fraud investigation; arms procurers are behind bars thanks to good policework by the Scotland Yard and SFO of US. Many associated with in the shadowy buisnesses like extortion, Narcotics trade, creditcard fraud fraud under LTTE have facd the long arm of law despite the influence politicionsofyesteryearmay have tried.

    Let us not forgat that sadly many memmbersof the Armed force – particularly those of the Intelligence wing like Colonel Muthaliph and Colonel Meedin were brutally assassinated in the first phase of the Ranil’s Cease Fire Agreement. In Sri Lanka shadowy deals of of UNP stalwart Ravi Karunanayake and Uthe US fineancier Raj Rajaratnam said to be connected with LTTE are still being investigated.

    Rule of Law has to be respected – howeverlong the process may take.

    Raj Rajaratnam will get out free because he has a big political clout in the US sanate. He has been charged by a law that dates back to 1895. Just one charge all the other charges were dropped by a lower court judge. Thanks for mentioning Colonel Musthalip and Colonel Meedin, their sacrfice is our todays victory. Ranil has done lot of harm to this military victory even after May 2009. I hope one day a private citizen will file charges against him for treason.

    British created the “language” based politics and divisions. Sinhala Pandits follow the same letter to letter. Rt.Hon.S.W.R.D. Banadaranayke tried to get out of the mess created by the British but he was killed by Buddharakkita.

    UNP paid compensation for the nationalised properties. But Banda refused and British Sinhala coolies plotted and killed him!

    The powerful people from the Sinhala community are still have a slavary mentality and expect “British” accolades while British publicly trigger terror in Sri lanka. A Tamil Kadirgamar had the guts to ask the governments to ban the LTTE but a Sinhala FM Tyrrone Fernando praised Prabhakaran as the “REAL PATRIOT OF SRI LANKA”. Why do Sinhalese cry for British recognition?

    Mudali: Some Sinhalas & some Tamils still want ‘approval’ from some Colonial Masters – they have got so westernised, both these Sinhala & Tamil people have forgotten the values of their forefathers, may be out of fear, long forgotten, or conversion, but the vestiges are there. It reminds me of Star Wars – Episode IV, where young Skywalker is completely converted to the dark side by the Darth Siddious !

    People can speak good English, do high tech jobs, keep their religion, etc., without having to be disloyal to their country and its people. And, yes, they can also help fellow beings in the rest of the world too, and still keep their loyalty & integrity to Lanka.

    In Lanka, these are left over problems from 500 yrs of Colonial Rule plus the Tamil Dalit problem of Tamil Nadu. What do you think we should do about bringing back old values of loyalty & integrity for both communities ?

  5. M.S.MUdali Says:

    Tamil Dalit problem of Tamil Nadu is a CHURCH problem and not the problem of Sri lanka.

    The bottom line is mutual respect and it should not be based on any thing but SRI LANKAN only!

    Even after independence of 60 years, we suffer from the ideologies created by FOREIGN elements which ruled and sucked our nation. We must find a way to disconnect from the colonial slave thinking. In this case I humbly inform that SWRD Bandaranayake is my GURU!

    Think about the pre-colonial era which never had any current problems.

  6. Fran Diaz Says:


    (1) Church ‘problem’ cannot be so easily dismissed. Church looks for conversions. Conversions happens in Lanka. Therefore it becomes Sri Lanka’s problem.

    (2) We are still not sure why SWRD Bandaranaike was assassinated by a so-called buddhist ‘monk’. There was a vague statement about ‘promises not kept’. What was the real reason – was it ever disclosed ?
    I do not like to probe any unpleasant past, but for real healing to take place, that must be done.
