ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Foreign AffairsÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Manual
ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â In response to the article “Buddists Behaving Badly” in your manual, I posit the following, I believe you would give the same coverage to put this issue in correct perspective to the valuable readers.
ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Sri Lanka is a country plundered by seafaring Pirates who gained a name for their dastardly acts by their respective countries as honorable deeds! They are Portuguese, Dutch & British.
ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â At the time of their arrival in 15th century onwards Sri Lanka had a rich Buddhist culture and a written history of nearly three thousand years. These dastardly acts were destroying these features gradually.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The physical destruction of the places of Worship and the forced conversion of Buddhists to Christianity was done in mass scale. They achieved their goals after killing thousands and thousands of innocent natives who were helpless against the lethal methods employed.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Children, infants, pregnant, young, old men, women no one who objected escaped these inhumane eliminations!
ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Sri Lanka is not a big country, which is the only country for Seventeen million SINHALESE in the ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“WorldÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â. They do not claim any land beyond the shores as theirs, hence they have every right to defend their ONLY land. Whether you are a MONK or a laymen NON-VIOLENCE doesnÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢t pay off, it has never been successful in known history! Besides every human has not developed the MIND to the level of that of the LORD BUDDHA, it is an arduous task to achieve that level, until that level is reached lesser beings have the desire to ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“hang on to what they believe theirsÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â. Though these people wear the “labels” Monk, Buddhist and protest for what is rightfully theirs, they never take nor have taken the “life” of another living being for the sake of the religion! Buddhists have never replaced another religious place of Worship with a Buddist Temple as said in this mythycal article. In this instance script writer has skillfully used the message, “the loss of their place of Worship” to give the same disgust to the reader as that of “torchure”.
ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The forefathers of those who talk for Human rights and mass scale genocides have blood in their hands! In fact the present generations of the past executioners have taken a different role these days to achieve the same result as “Angels of Mercy”! These hypocrites who denigrate the purity of Sri Lanka are in the payroll of the ungrateful Tamil Diaspora spread across the Globe.
ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The World witnessed how real Buddhists reacted when the Afghans destroyed the two tallest Buddhist sculptures WorldÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s heritage, they know that everything is impermanent, it happened in Sri Lanka as I have explained at the begining, it was ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“letting goÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â from Buddhas teaching they practiced.
ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The scripts written by the ungrateful, selfish, hateful Tamil Diaspora who gained by the free education, health and employment are now engaging in denigrating Sri Lanka, in other words they chop the ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“hand that fedÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â. These people only wear the ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“labelÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Hindu or Christian, I am trying to defend these beliefs have nothing to do with these hypocrites!
ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“bigotÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â William McGowan who penÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â his names as the author of the article has certainly qualified for the payments! What a pity he has not set foot to this beautiful ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“Island ParadiseÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â not that it would make any difference, but at the Judgment day they will burn in Hell for being dishonest!
ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â It is indeed sad to see that your poor judgement due to the lack ofÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â knowledge about Sri Lanka has given exposure in your journal at a time the World is gradually getting the correct picture of the ground reality in Sri Lanka! “You can fool some of the people all the time, and all the people some of the time, but cannot fool all of the people all the time!” How true this has become!!!
