Indian Infiltration secret behind calls to remove Mullikulam Navy Camp
Posted on July 12th, 2012

India’s comments, actions and gestures never happen without reason and become accentuated by their Sri Lankan mouthpiece the TNA ever willing to carry out anything and everything India orders. Thus, the diplomatic tempos being thrust on Sri Lanka are all nothingbut pressure points to clear Sri Lanka’s military presence along the coastal fronts leaving Sri Lanka open to India’s whims and desires.

Therefore, we should not shrug the links to the greater plan currently being carved by India in continuing its efforts to destabilize Sri Lanka whilst pretending to be a friend. Mullikulam is important because of its location within the small strip of area connecting India through a ferry service perfect to advance India’s grandiose plans to interfere in sovereign Sri Lanka.

There is much to read between the lines. The diplomatic chidings regarding Indian fishermen, the TNA’s sudden concern for 81 non-Hindu families, the uproar over their displacement and demand for them to be resettled while insisting that the Navy camp be remove dare intricately linked. At the back of our mind should always remain the 50,000 sponsored Indian homes and the question of who these homes are actually meant for. With only a handful of the 297,000 refugees saved by Sri Lanka’s military remaining to be resettled it begs to question whether these 50,000 houses are being earmarked for a greater Indian plan!

Let us see what this fuss is all about and derive at possible conclusions how it has become a trend to use electronic media, Tamil Nadu leaders, the TNA, Christian and Catholic NGOs and their representatives to become mouthpieces simply to use these naƒÆ’†’¯ve people to advance their ulterior motives. Mullikulam is not the first such instance.

The Mullikulam Navy camp area comprises around 10acres with 2000 acres surrounding which is mostly jungle terrain. Within the current area of the camp there is a Church which is possibly about 100 years but now in decrepit condition and 32 houses most of which are partly destroyed and in bad condition.  Bishops from Mannar arrive every Sunday for religious prayers.

We are well aware of the fixation to issue inflated civilian casualties and numbers and it came as no surprise when internationally it was relayed that 200 families have been purposely displaced by Sri Lanka’s military. Contrary to these false propaganda is the fact that there are not more than 110 (81 families) people at the center of the issue. Also true is that these people had been living in parts of Mannar since 2000 which would obviously explain why the houses are in bad condition and why the condition of the Church is no better. What is more these families do not have any title deeds either despite the TNA’s calls that these people be given their land. The people too are well aware that they do not possess any title deeds and so are ever grateful to be given built homes within an enclave that they can carry out their livelihood. Even the children of these families had been receiving their education in Mannar and there is no evidence of any school being run pre-war in the area.

The navy has provided the people plenty of facilities. Contrary to the accusations of inhumanness of the armed forces, it is the navy that provides water through bowzers, the navy has also facilitated the people with toilets and navy doctors attend to the medical needs of the people. The navy has also gone to the extent of making a clear path in order for these non-Hindus to attend Church on Sundays from the makeshift homes they currently live in. There are enough of food purchasing outlets and there is a significant presence of NGOs and Church involvement to assist the families as well.

The livelihood of these people naturally depends on the season with men (40 or so) taking to fishing during season and during off season attending to agriculture (paddy cultivation and vegetables)

The issue at hand appears to be that having realized the importance of Mullkulam, India does not desire to have the naval camp present and India is doing what it knows best to create a scenario of embarrassment for the Sri Lankan Government and its military. This is a modus operandi that India is famous for. The naval camp was created in2008 and it has now been turned into the North Western province naval headquarters housing 1500 sailors and 25 officers.

It is for Sri Lankan authorities to realize that India remains only another neighbor in the South Asian region and India has no right to be dictating how our coastal areas are to be run. If the people in question are satisfied with the arrangement that they are to be built 32 houses close to the paddy field and fishing area and just 4km from the Church to which a bus service is promised to be arranged for them to go to Church on Sundays what is India’s and TNA’s problem when the people are extremely happy with the arrangement offered through the Government. Why does India and TNA want to use these people who had abandoned these houses decades ago wish to insist that they remain in order to use them as a ruse to demand the closure or removal of the Navy camp?

If these people are to be given homes, to be close to fishing and agriculture and to be given electricity when their homes will be gifted once complete has anyone given these people anything better over the years except to use them to promote lies about hartals and complaints which are being relayed over electronic media?

To make matters worse while India and Tamil Nadu are often up in arms about harassment of Indian fishermen do they forget to mention that it is Indian “fishermen” that come poaching into Sri Lanka’s territorial waters and they come in trawlers and crafts with 500 or1000 Indians inside leaving Sri Lanka’s navy in a tight situation on how to arrest and who to arrest.

It is not difficult to really connect what India’s plan is to use different strategies to demand Sri Lanka’s Government remove its strategic bases from the coastal areas especially in  areas that India finds it easy to steadily bring in illegal Indian immigrants and house them over time to be used when the time is right. Thus, it is important to always remember the 50,000 Indian housing scheme and checklist who exactly each house has been awarded to. We have not forgotten that 30 years is a very long period that illegal immigrants would have been arriving in Sri Lanka and these Indians are now living as Sri Lankans and that is why we cannot make sense of the population figures in the North and East especially pre-war.

What Sri Lankans must remember at all times is that with the LTTE now no more, India has to now think of different ways to infiltrate Indians into Sri Lanka “”…” in the South it is happening through bogus commercial ventures and open visas systems in other parts it is taking place through our waters. Never has there been an important time than now to protect our shores and Sri Lanka’s Navy needs to be given the fullest backing and public support.

    It is time Sri Lanka becomes very assertive with respect to her security needs. The Government of Sri Lanka need not have to pander to anybody if necessary to take legal possession of any land that are deemed necessary and relocate any inhabitants. Sri Lanka has suffered over 30 years of terrorist misery sponsored by India, the Catholic Church and other Western Christian countries. It is high time we put in place those military cantonments where the military feels they are required for the future security of Sri Lanka.

    The sinhalese especially the buddhists are economically ethnically cleansed from the economic centres now the indians are infiltrating illegal immigrants. Until such time the sinhalese assert their rights the sinhalese will become a minority soon.

    With 3,000,000 Indians in the island, what else do you expect?

    One BIG PROBLEM of ending the war is now they don’t leave SL and die in sufficient numbers. That is going to be a BIG problem in future. Whatever hardships we had during the war 1,000,000 of them LEFT SL thankfully and according to them 40,000 of them died in 2009 ALONE. At least 89,000 of them died going by the number of Indian war widows in the island. Now these are not happening. Just imagine the danger!

    When JR started the war people blamed him for “grabbing a tiger tail”. If not we would have surrendered peacefully!

    VP killed MORE Indians including Tamils than Sinhalese. For every Sinhalese he killed, more Indians were killed.

    Then he killed Tamil politicians and Indian PM BEFORE he killed ANY Sinhala politician!!

    I challenge anyone to disprove this. You can’t.

    VP is bad and must be stopped. BUT it is good to create another REMOTE CONTROL VP and pit him against Indians in the island. Foolish Tamil Diaspora will finance him while he kills fellow Indians.

    Even Jayalalitha will shut up in FEAR!! When VP was there, she was panicking in fear!!

    Look like we need another VP to reduce the number of dirty Indians.

  5. cessch Says:

    you sinhalese are some of the most hateful dreadful people i ever came across. when i visited thier in june 2009 i despised and loathed you the whole time. and to read comments from the likes of lorenzo i remember why. what a lower class of people i cannot imagine.

    killing, raping, stereo typing, and calls for violence is all you people ever know. give u guys a rope and you will hang urselves with it. here you go!!!

    buddhists? do you think the buddha would support any of your activities let alone your national mindset? !!!

    stupid people

  6. Dham Says:

    cessch,
    Are you mistaken ? Do you mean “Indians” or sinhalese ?
    As far as I know it is the Idians who hang themselves. Give them a cyanide capsule and a string they will kill themselves and few others. When MGR died many Indians hang themselves. Sinhalese don’t do that.

  7. Fran Diaz Says:

    Sri Lankan masses are being provoked beyond belief by ‘bought’ forces – what is the objective ? In Sri Lanka, we have to first survive to practice any religion.

    Take the Mullikulam matter. Why remove the Navy from this strategic point for security ? The SL Navy MUST have permanent camps along the coast at certain strategic areas such as Mullikulam, as Lanka did in the ancient times. Illegal Migrants and Drug Smugglers will have a free run if the Navy is removed from Mullikulam. Also, the Mannar offshore OIL area has to be protected. A strong Navy presence in Mullikulam is imperative.

    India is being used by various sources to destabilise Sri Lanka. Tamil Nadu leaders inconsistencies play a large part in this matter. GoSL & the masse of Sri Lankans must stand firm re Security of the Nation. The alternative is unthinkable – do we want to go back to another 30 yrs of ltte ?

  8. A. Sooriarachi Says:

    I agree with those who say a nation has the right to defend its borders by strenthening security in areas that become strategic from time to time. Today the northern sea coast needs to be given priority in the light of threats and utterances of Tamilnadu politicians, which threats are echoed by their local counterparts in the TNA. Whilst Tamilnadu was the godfather of the LTTE, TNA is the baby delivered by the very LTTE. With the LTTE now pushed out from SriLanka, Tamilnadu is relying on the TNA and the Tamilnadu fisherman to engage in illegal demands, to undermine the security of the nation. It is high time the Govt enforced the law and charge the TNA leaders for sedition.
    At this moment, it is clear that the Govt needs to expand their naval bases in Mannar and all maritime provinces.

  9. Fran Diaz Says:

    Lorenzo says it like it is. We are with him. He defends Lanka in his own inimitable style, and anyone without a bit of humour & appreciation of his superb style of writing, will not like his remarks. Keep it up, Lorenzo – with you in spirit, always !

    Shanali- YOu have raised an important subject that should be a vital concern of all Sri Lankans who do not want a return to war.

    What you see in the distant horizon on entering Mannar is the defunct rail bridge in disconnected horizontal line, dipping at the centre, a stark and constant reminder of the viscious nature of LTTE that once had the firpower bomb making material and know how imported from India. It was a man dressed as a catholic priet one Nagulan, who one got nabbed in Colombo in 2008, in his attempt to transport more bombs. THe nearby surrounds of Madu Church was an area where many Sri Lankan forces had to make the ultimate sacrifice to lierate the land from the Fascist forces.

    THe delapidated sea connection Thalaymannar commissioned in 1914 was once the key route for the import of labour for Tea and RUbber plantations.

    THis area is of vital strategic importance if Sri Lanka is to remain as a single entity and it is the duty of every Sri Lankan to support the continuance of strong Army and Navy presence in the Mannarpeninsula, whatever may be the cry of Tamil Nadu politicians and their local mouthpieces.
