Mr. Gotabaya Rajapaksa

Defence Secretary of Sri Lanka 
Office of the Secretary of  Defence
Colombo.  Sri Lanka

Dear Gotabaya Rajapaksa:

I just read in today’s (March 22, 2013) Colombo Page which said “India disappointed us- Gotabaya.  March 22 (DM) Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa said yesterday that the strong statement issued by India at the UN Council session raising accountability issues at war came both as a surprise and a big disappointment.”

My question to you is, since when did you believe that India respected the sovereignty of its neighbour, Sri Lanka?   I believe that you are too intelligent and too smart not to accept that India is a hostile neighbour of Sri Lanka who has been back-stabbing Sri Lanka for the past 30 years.  That India still operates on their Indira-Monroe doctrine mode hoping that they will take Sri Lanka under their wing one day.

Surely your premise that India has been a friendly neighbour for you to be disappointed after the UN vote is fraught with misconceptions.  Pity!

*India is our neighbour whose R.N.Kao, India’s legendry spymaster and the National Security Advisor to India’s Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, designed the Sri Lanka Operation to recruit, train and arm and direct Tamil militancy in the form of terrorism, and  trained 1000s of barefooted Tamil guerillas in their military camps in the south of India and in the foothills of the Himalayas to destabilize Sri Lanka in the late 1983 and 1984.  And we still call India our friendly neighbour!;

*India is our neighbour that violated our sovereign airspace by  giving Colombo a bare 35 minute notice and sending four Mirage 2000 fighter jet planes screaming over Northern Sri Lankan skies for their Anatov-32 Transport planes  to drop 25 tons of parippu to feed 800,000 Tamil peoples in Jaffna peninsula.  And we still call India our friendly neighbour!;

*India is our neighbour, whose Prime Minister Indira Gandhi summoned a high powered meeting in August 1984 to discuss invasion plans of Sri Lanka.  Indian troops were moved from Agra to Thivandrum.  And in September plans to invade Sri Lanka was shelved.  And we still call India our friendly neighbour!;

*India is our neighbour, who in1987 threatened to militarily intervene if the Sri Lankan Government end the Tamil Tiger separatist war when they were cornered by the military, navy and airforce in the Vadamarachchi region, a strategic area for traffic between India and the Jaffna peninsula.  And New Delhi informed through private sources and through diplomatic channels that India will not allow Jaffna to be captured by the Sri Lankan forces.  Velupillai Prabhakaran, the leader of the Tamil Tigers admitted that the Tamil Tigers would have been wiped out within four hours at Vadamarachchi if not for the timely intervention by India.   India’s RAW shipped fresh arm to the beleaguered Tamil Tigers.  And the war lasted another 22 years which  killed scores of thousands of innocent Sri Lankans.  And we still call India our friendly neighbour.

*India is our neighbour, that aligned with the US to pass a resolution breaking the solidarity of Asian nations to undermine Sri Lanka at Geneva.  And we still call India our friendly neighbour.

Gotabaya Rajapaksa, knowing that you are in the inner circle of President Rajapaksa’s advisory council, my request to you is simple:

  1.  If geo-politics necessitates that you repeat the lying mantra, “India is a friend of Sri Lanka”, over and over again, go ahead and do it, but you have a responsibility to the 22 million peoples of Sri Lanka;
  2. .      They need to be told the truth that Sri Lanka is now living in the shadow of a hostile neighbour, India who has not acknowledge that Sri Lanka is a sovereign nation.

And let Sri Lankans make their choices.  Should they go on a pilgrimage to India and get assaulted by the South Indian vindictive thugs and terrorists.  Or should they go to India and expose their female partners for being possibly gang raped by these vindictive Indian thugs.  If they could do it to a Swiss lady in front of her husband, it is no sweat to do the same to a Sri Lankan.  Or should they patronize an Indian business to let them take a foothold in Sri Lanka, etc.

  1. 3. Be cautious of  big key investments in Sri Lanka by Indian Companies and conglomerates, like the Lanka Indian Oil Corp, Ashok Leyland, TATA’s et cetera, as most trade agreements are tilted towards India and will  give a foot hold in Sri Lanka.  Every time we sign a trade deal with this hostile neighbour who twice wanted to invade Sri Lanka we are letting them place a noose around Sri Lanka’s neck.  And I strongly urge the Sri Lankan government not to grant any trade and diplomatic concessions to India which does not respect nor accept Sri Lanka’s sovereignty.
  1. 4. And finally, lets be smart and repeal the 13th Amendment with out delay,  which is the blue print for separating our little nation into two.  We are being humiliated by India and the US, and lets say that enough is enough.

And I say, Let’s wake up Sri Lanka.

Very sincerely

Asoka Weerasinghe (a dual citizen)

    It is time we stand up to this Indian bull shit and stop giving rights to oil exploration and other big contracts. We must give every opportunity to our friends like China and Pakistan in big projects. To me the only good thing the fta Prabah did was to eliminate Rajive Gandhi.If he lived a bit longer, fat Prabha would have taken over our country with Gandhi’s help.

    Thank you sir again for eye opening letter to GR.

  3. Son of Lanka Says:

    The only way that the people of Sri Lanka can send a clear, sharp message to India that we as a Sovereign Nation do not consider our neighbor to be a trustworthy and reliable friend is to organize and strictly implement a boycott of all Indian-owned Companies in Sri Lanka, starting with the LIOC. Even the Bodhu Bala Sena should focus it’s efforts at promoting a boycott of Indian products such as Sarees and Films (Why are we still importing Sharuk Khan and Amitah Batchan films after our Motherland was humiliated by these two Bollywood stars ? Do we not possess even an iota of shame and self-respect ?) rather than advocating the boycott of locally-owned Muslim business establishments. And for the sake of our Motherland, no more Indian investments in Sri Lanka please. After Geneva 2012, India was awarded the Krish Towers project which is expected to turn the Fort area into ‘Little India’. The people are waiting to see how India will be rewarded for it’s performance at Geneva 2013.

    It is time for all Sri Lankans to send India a loud message. “Enough is enough. You turned our Motherland into a killing field for 30 years by training, financing, arming and providing shelter to the World’s deadliest Terrorist Group. The harassing and bullying tactics that you have adopted since 2009 must stop – now”.

    Good to hear that Sri Lanka will acquire the oil storage in the north-east belonging to the Indians… Loss of $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ will wake up karunanidhi from his hallucinations……….. :)

  5. Lorenzo Says:

    Surprising to hear it from a person like GR who is a well educated and intelligent person.

    Endia ALWAYS was and will be SL’s biggest enemy.

    Our leaders NEVER learn. They go after Endia like an addiction.

  6. PRIYAN WIJEYERATNE Says:

    There are two things GOSL MUST do immediately, repeal 13th amendment & settle a million young SL families in North & East and feed them until they can feed themselves. PeeEndia is our enemy for ever!!

  7. mario_perera Says:

    Our leaders have made Sri Lanka the kicking bag of India. The country’s bottom is always in the air to be kicked at will by the Indians, while our heads our down in subjugation telling the kicker: you are our dearest friend, our best friend, our eternal friend, how sweet your kicks are.

    Rajapaksa brothers are not Bandaranayakes. Indian intelligence service made their biggest mistake in letting them win the elections instead of Ranil and the UNP. India thought Mahinda Rajapakse can be manipulated with a few thousands of rupees like they did with Bandaranaykes. India has been our enemy since the time of our great king Rawana.

  9. Fran Diaz Says:

    A quick re-cap of the situation we are at :

    Sri Lanka’s problem is with Tamil Nadu & the TN political party DMK mostly. Karunanaidhi, who heads the DMK, took over from Annadurai, who was the architect of Separatism for Tamil Nadu & southern states, from the Indian Union of States. PM Nehru’s Anti-Secessionist Law put a stop to the Separatist movement for a while. K’naidhi could not go on with the Separatist idea in Indian, instead he has picked up the Separatist idea and expanded it into the south i.e. Sri Lanka. Having lost the war headed by the Northern Tamil group, the ltte with leader Prabhakaran, he is using the so called “Indian Tamils” who are really Tamil Nadu Tamils, to pad up Tamil numbers in Sri Lanka.

    Sri Lanka uses so called Indian Tamils in the tea and other Labor sectors. Tamils come to Sri Lanka to lose low caste/Dalit status, receive free education & health care, etc. It is the EDUCATED Tamils who go abroad who approach various politicos and tell lies about Sri Lanka. They use the Tamil Labor Sector in Sri Lanka to build up a case of Discrimination, etc. Tamil Labor in the tea areas are insular due to Caste bound conditioning.

    It is pertinent to note that the Lok Sabha of India was NOT for voting against Sri Lanka at the UNHRC. Obviously, K’naidhi threats prevailed.

    We wish that Gota would address the VISA ON ARRIVAL factor now in operation because of a SAARC agreement. We think this is the new ploy used by those who arrive via Ferry services plying between Tamil Nadu & Sri Lanka. Lanka authorities have issued WORK VISAS lately for some of these people. Will they ever go back ? NO. It is becoming a new SECURITY ISSUE.

    We have to suspend contact with Tamil Nadu asp. We have to stop visa on arrival privileges for SAARC countries and for all others. Security comes before the Economy.

    Sri Lanka paying dearly for British & Dutch imported low caste Tamil indentured labor numbering some ONE & HALF MILLION for the Tea & Tobacco plantations. Sri Lanka can NEVER solve the Tamil CASTE PROBLEMS. There are some 10-15 Million of low caste/Dalit origin Tamils in Tamil Nadu. Let go and sever relations with Tamil Nadu. Or else Sri Lanka will continue to be the Whipping Boy for Tamil Caste/poverty problems in TN. Vested interests see opportunity for expansion and control of both Sri Lanka & India through this problem. K’naidhi has internationalised a problem that ought to have been solved internally both in India & Sri Lanka.

    Over to Gota & the Min. of Defense.

    It is important to develop our own defence industry and have energy and food security. Also our new generation need to develop skills in the financial and economic fields, so that we can compeet with any one in the world. There is no going back – the world is now global. Now is the time to repeal 13A.

  11. Fran Diaz Says:

    Christie,

    The problem we have in Sri Lanka is NOT a Leadership problem, although we ought to have a better educated Parliament (btw, about a quarter of India’s Parliament is composed of ex-jail birds). It is a LABOR problem, which has not been addressed properly.

    Anyway, we did see what happened with the CBK/Ranil combination.

    HR issues are being used to control both India & Sri Lanka.

  12. Fran Diaz Says:

    In spite of Karunanaidhi’s rantings against Sri Lanka, we do NOT see Tamil people of any social status in Sri Lanka haring it back to K’s fold in Tamil Nadu !

  13. douglas Says:

    Dear Asoka: Thanks. you are beginning to see things as they are. We have “portrayed” ourselves as a “Nation of Gullibles” and what a pity that we continue to be so. If not would we have ever trusted a country who “trained”, “financed”and “set in motion” a terrorist outfit to de-stablize our country for so long. Also we should have had an ounce of brains to understand why this “untrusworthy neighbour” was keepping very quite when we fought a valiant battle to eliminate that “ruthless terrorist” – Pirabakaran. They have realized that Pirabakaran was built, by them, into being a “Monster” who could not be eliminated by them. Also they knew that if by chance this “monster” is to establish an “eelam” in Jaffna, the whole of South India will also be lost and would be the greatest threat to the central administration who are burdened with the Kashmir problem. So with ulterior motives on the directions of the RAW this “questionable neighbour” got our government to “make a finish with that threat”and thereafter slowly “infiltrated” into the affairs of administration of the “regained North and East” of our country. We were very quick to “embrace” this “monstrous” neighbour without realizing the dangers that we were to face in the future. It is now gone too far and this “hollow friend” has joined hands with another “world bully” – USA to put the final nails on our coffin.

    It is time for the people of Sri Lanka and the Government to realiaze the “IMMINENT DANGERS” that lay ahead and set the house in order to face the threats.

  14. Ancient Sinhalaya Says:

    India has been nothing but trouble for since ancient times for us. They like to meddle in our affairs and dictate us all the time. All this UNHCR trouble is traitor diaspora-fuelled. To stop these traitors who got FREE education, FREE med. from us there is an easy solution. Tell them if you don’t stop your treachery, we will colonise entire north and east with Sinhalese. Squeeze them out of those areas and traitors will stop their treachery. Then these ‘human rights champion’ western politician who lick diasporas’ backs for votes will stop bullying Sri Lanka. To stop bully India, get Chinese to have a military base in the north. They will shut up for good. Give oil exploration blocks to the Chinese. Get rid of the traitor India for good. By dancing to TN’s tune, indian doing too much damage to their long term security. They lost control of the Indian Ocean to the Chinese letting them having their ports in Sri Lanka, Thailand, Pakisthan. Serve the traitors right. Get more Chinese presence in the Island. After all, China has the final say in most affairs in the modern world. Try bully the Chinese for a change? When they are scared of nuke-armed Pakisthan, what chance against mighty Chinese! Shame on you India! shame on you treacherous diaspora! This is how you pay back for the country you were born, gave FREE education, FREE medicine. This is how you pay back to the PRESIDENT WHO SAVED YOUR RACE FROM EXTINCTION from Hitler prabakaran! Disgraceful!

  15. Senevirath Says:

    Mahinda and G.R are not bad people But they are not very inteligent enough to understand about their enemies and our enemies. They ignored “CHANDA DASA” or the ordinary voter and turned on to the so called educated group –“BAMUNUKULA”” for advice.

    This elite group is ruining the country. the best example was L.L.R.C members. L.L.R.C gave enough arms and ammunition to our enemies to fight against us.

    M.R and G.R India has been our enemy for a long time. U and your elite group laughed at Gunadasa Amarasekara and Nalin de silva when they told this. now u are too late to admit it.

    atleast now listen to the real patriotic people

  16. S.Gonsalkorale Says:

    Simple truth is why don’t we tell the truth officially and expose ENdia ?

    1. Publish all details of how Endia created LTTE and ask for compensation, not daily advice.
    2. Expose Endia’s cruel treatment of its own citizen and question hypcracy. Put them on backfoot to defend by OFFICIALY asking these questions.

  17. Lorenzo Says:

    Agree with S.Gonsalkorale.

    3. Investigate human rights violations and war crimes of IPKF. IPKF WAR CRIMINAL Hariharan is a big time anti-SL Endian.

    Welcome to the forum.

  18. Lorenzo Says:

    I’m fast losing faith on Gotabaya. SL’s national security is at THREAT from Tamilians, Endians, etc. Tamilians from Endia ILLEGALLY migrate to SL. He has to STOP making statements and start ACTION.

  19. Vijendra Says:

    Thank you Asoka for stating the facts so clearly.

    Gotabaya, there is no need to do anything about India, but you need to take care of SL. Sri Lankans have voted the present government and given them a mandate to take care SL for all the Sri Lankans. Get rid of this cancer of the 13A imposed on us by the Indians, which is ruining our country economically, politically and dividing oursmall country based on ethnicity. All Sri Lankans, including the Tamils, will love your government for it, if not now, some day down the road. Prevent SL citizens being traitors to our motherland and seeking help and assistance from Indians and other warmongers without going through the GOSL. Make all politicians sign an oath of allegiance to uphold the sovereignty and territorial integrity of SL. These are things you and your government can do immediately to safeguard SL for all Sri Lankans.

  20. Fran Diaz Says:

    Yes, DO get rid of the people killer 13-A. The present GoSL & the Rajapakses will be gratefully thanked by the country for that favor. DO that Referendum and bring in new Laws to safeguard the Nation. It’s a now or never thing.

    Just do it ! the People are behind you, Pres. MR & GoSL ! We couldn’t wait to see the ltte gone, now we can’t wait to see the 13-A gone.

  21. Outspoken Sri Lankan Says:

    GR is a man who can put the country straight. He must also put our people’s thinking straight to make them more patriotic. He may be a little rough around the edges but he can call a spade a spade.
    We should boycott Indian goods. The society ladies must start with the sarees seen in the HI magazine. Some patriotic businessman should get going with making sarees with Chinese or Pakistani help and probably the Japanese who make good fabrics. We don’t need their curry powders because the Sri Lankan products are better. Those of us Sri Lankans living overseas, should start with not patronising the Indian stored for curry powders. To all those who live in the USA, if you don’t have a local grocery store that stocks Sri Lankan products, go online and order from several sources that are operating in the USA. Similarly people in other countries can get shipments direct to them and avoid going to the Indian shops. This is what we should do. Another alarming observation is that when on visits Colombo, there are too many Indians in high positions as company directors etc., enjoying housing etc., and a high lifestyle which they will easily get used to and not want to go back to their stinking hell hole with animals and people eating from garbage bins. We should start small and boycott so that the overall effect is felt.

    Our missions overseas also should start to be a little more assertive. MR and GR please send people with backbones to represent us abroad. Send people who are well informed with facts and who can stand on their feet and make a case for us convincingly. The strength of being articulate goes a long way and we lack that. Some diplomats struggle to read a written paper so how can they argue and make points for the country on their feet. It is not thier fault it is the outcome of political interference in our education that lowered standards. The most intelligent cannot communicate and their intelligence is wasted if they lack self confidence in a world language.
