The Truth is neither India nor Sri Lanka should want 13th amendment NOW
Posted on July 1st, 2013

Shenali D Waduge

Both the Indo-Lanka Peace Accord signed in 1987 and the subsequent amendment to Sri Lanka’s Constitution needs to be looked comparing the background in which it emerged and the relevance to the current context of the political scene for both India and Sri Lanka. At the time Tamil militants were trained in India, India was pro-Soviet while JR Jayawardena Government took a pro-US stand. Today, the scenario has turned quite opposite while India is led by a non-Indian. Given the “internationalized” scenario that surrounds the “Tamil” issue it is for India and Indians to understand the real dangers in courting with strategic ally’s that will determine and decide India’s own structural collapse.

Tamil Eelaam “”…” Tamil Nadu  

The players associated with the Indo-Lanka issue are all now no more and its legacy has been fine-tuned to fit another agenda of far more dangerous proportions that necessitates the nationalists of both India and Sri Lanka to realize the dangers it brings to both nations and the entire Asian continent. What the Accord was supposed to solve in 1987 and what it aims to solve now is totally different “”…” there flags the need for true Indians and Sri Lankans to realize the dangers of allowing the 13th amendment to prevail alongside the PC system. What Rajiv’s advisors drafted on behalf of India’s interest has today been hijacked.

There is a long history to the Tamil issue and it is nothing that new recruits to Western foreign missions stationed in either India or Sri Lanka will be able to understand unless the material by Tamil Nadu leaders since early 1900s are read “”…” secessionism of Tamil Nadu from India for Tamils started nowhere else but in Tamil Nadu with a strong argument that Tamil Nadu was never part of India until the British joined it for administrative purposes during colonial rule.

Any diplomat attempting to speak on the Tamil issue cannot disassociate the Tamil Nadu link for separatism because Tamils of Sri Lanka originate from Tamil Nadu and when Tamils claim to desire a separate state for Tamils it is in Tamil Nadu that the separate state needs to be created. There is no grounds to create several separate states based on ethnic demands “”…” if so the Chinese will start demanding separate states in US and Australia where they are prominent in very large numbers and dictate to its economy, Sikhs may do the same in US and UK too. This will then become a very ugly precedent. Moreover, the seed of Tamil separatism in Sri Lanka was sown by an imported Malaysian Christian Tamil to Sri Lanka in the form of Chelvanayagam and his party was formed in 1949 the same year that the DMK of India was launched and that spearheaded separatism clearly articulated in the meaning of the party name “”…” Illankai Tamil Arasu Katchchi. Therefore, we refuse to buy the story or version being promoted that separatism started with Sinhalese oppression or discrimination because 1949 was the year after Sri Lanka gained independence “”…” therefore there is nothing that remotely validates Chelvanayagam to start a separatist struggle unless there was a Tamil Nadu link to the quest which was subtly hidden by launching it in Sri Lanka which went well with India’s policy of curtailing neighboring nations and forcing upon the creed that it is only unto India that nations can seek assistance.

Having said that, now that Tamil Nadu is part of the Indian State, what India never answered is why Bangladesh could be created in 1971 and made into an autonomous state and Tamil Nadu as well as Kashmir remains in limbo?

The supposed pro-US stand taken by JR Jayawardena against Indira’s pro-Soviet stand is said to have been one of the reasons to irk Indira, though Sri Lanka never received the support that it expected except the trade ties with the West on account of Sri Lanka opening its economy. Thus, the Indo-Lanka Peace Accord drew very little foreign editorial rebukes against India given the manner the Accord was signed. Any nation in the present context being made to sign an accord as Sri Lanka had to in 1987 would have made international headlines. Sri Lanka was forced to sign an agreement, with Indian jets flying over Sri Lankan air, with Sri Lankan cabinet members made to sign blank undated letters of resignation, under emergency and excluding media and ministers being kept in a hotel and then taken for signature does not depict anything to do with democratic norms or cordial relations.

Tamil Eelaam = Christian Satellite State

Rajiv Gandhi was to eventually face his own death at the very hands of the Tamil militants his mother trained by Prabakaran who realized India was playing a double game. Indira created Bhindrawale and Khalistan as well as LTTE and Prabakarn. Prabakaran can hardly be said to be spokesman for the Tamil people yet credit must be given for realizing far before Sri Lanka’s own politicians the double and deceitful game India was playing. Prabakaran played along so long as his movement was not in threat of being annihilated for it served a greater agenda to which he had aligned himself and that was not to please India’s desire to help annex Sri Lanka’s North (possibly the East too) to India to extend the Union of India but to carve out Tamil Nadu and create a new Christian state with Sri Lanka’s supposed “Eelaam”. Thus the Eelaam quest is a satellite Christian state comprising both Tamil Nadu and Sri Lanka’s North and East provinces “”…” it may well do for the Sri Lankan Muslims to not fall into the trap being laid to get them to join the anti-Sinhala Buddhist camp for it is all part of a bigger plan and the Muslims should know how the West has treated Muslims.  

When Sri Lanka’s Tamils are majority Hindu why is it that it is not the Hindu religious leaders speaking on behalf of the Tamils but the Christian/Catholic heads some of whom have played a very prominent role amongst the LTTE openly advocating separatism? Has the funds that have flown to LTTE over the years through Christian/Catholic charity movements not had links to LTTE and would we be over exaggerating if we are to imply that LTTE by virtue of its sponsors is now working towards conversions at rapid pace through the entire Tamil Nadu coastal belt? Is this not why the “internationalized” element of the Tamil “grievance” has become such a hot international topic gaining Western attention for a foothold in both India and Sri Lanka provides the strategic option the imperial West has been long seeking to achieve? Simply look at all the players currently speaking on behalf of a supposed Tamil grievance and their connectivity either by faith or by the manner in which they have been bought over to realize the validity of this claim.

How Tamil are Tamil politicos?

Tamil Nadu politicos are not Tamil “”…” Ramadoss is Telugu, Karunanidhi is a Telugu, Veeramani, Vaiko, A K Natarajan, Thirumavalavan are all Telugus and all favor caste based divisions instead of reservation for Tamil race “”…” thus Tamil Nadu has Tamil only in name and propaganda and all controlled by non-Tamils under the influence of the Church.

The obstacles to this quest is answered by India realizing for itself where these bottlenecks are and these chocking points is something India’s nationalists would well do to factor in though that effort is made somewhat difficult with the country being led by a non-Hindu and non-Indian.

However, the danger signals are being chocked by a fictitious “multicultural” agenda propagated by the very stooges pushing for the creation of that satellite state using channels like media and civil society groups that they hold reign over. Again notice the connectivity. Therefore, India and Sri Lanka is at a situation where nationalism is being questioned on the grounds that it is falsely bringing disunity. Thus these “multiculturalists” are now attempting to push nationalism to a corner falsely giving a notion that nationalists of both India and Sri Lanka are anti-unity whilst they forge their plan to create that satellite nation with impunity given that they are backed by the foreign nations and organizations sponsoring the quest.

So our question is – Is India ready to abandon its Hindu identity?

History cannot hide the tortures India suffered through colonial and Moghul invasions in terms of loss of life and the annihilation of its ancient civilization. In many ways India struggles to connect or rather reconnect with its Hindu civilization amidst the tussles seeking to project a secular India at the cost of its Hindu identity. In Asia, the strength of its defense comes in securing its national identity for that identity connects it with the indigenous cultures and races that built up the nation and newcomers should not question the place the indigenous race and culture rightfully must secure. If it were not for them the country would not have anything to take pride in and for that reason Subash Chandra Bose must remain a hero among heroes.

There is a visible yet invisible power behind the Tamil Nadu politicians and its pressures upon India’s central government. The Tamil Nadu Bar inclusive of the Madras High Court is political with lawyers split between DMK and AIADMK and not surprisingly supportive of LTTE. Jayalalitha may like to recall how she committed her party to creating that Christian state of Tamil Eelaam. Is it a surprise that Tamil Nadu is the largest recipient of foreign funds. Is it also a surprise that the Church began to fund television programs, Tamil films and purchasing acres of land, putting up prayer houses and Churches and slowly setting themselves up in Hindu’s holiest places and cities and the fishermen crisis Sri Lanka faces is also being attributed to being instigated by the Church.

Ordinary people belonging to the Christian faiths will not understand any of the dynamics involved and would more likely be prone to taking these as rebuttals against their faith however, they would well be advised to read about the manner their faith is a political tool and used in expansionism from ancient times to present.

Abrahamic religions are all about invasions, expansionism and conquests. The Tamil Nation quest itself is anti-Brahmin. A new wave of religions and ideologies invented through cults of Abrahamic religions have begun to fan a host of challenges that befall sovereign governments because they all follow the philosophy to conquer, promoting confrontation and thereafter seeking separate identity on the argument that they cannot exist with others. This is the template being used and to carve out territory international laws originated by Christian west have been meticulous designed.

Therefore territory has become a central feature of these cults and the confrontations all take an anti-stand. In the case of India it is taking the shape of anti-Hindu, anti-Sanskrit, anti-North India, anti-Hindi while in Sri Lanka it is anti-Buddhist, anti-Sinhala, anti-national. Therefore if the objective is to weaken Hinduism in India, in Sri Lanka eyes are set on weakening Buddhist influence and disengage both the cleavage they hold in political decision making. The conversion element in both nations need to be dealt with given that foreign churches and western governments are pumping in money to destabilize no different to the situation taking shape in Nepal and Myanmar. If the Self-Respect Movement was non-Brahmin in India, the Catholic Action in Sri Lanka almost led to a Christian military coup in the 1960s. Christians find their presence distributed across Sinhala, Tamil and Indian Tamils thus affording them a voice in all matters. Given a good look back at the Sri Lankan war it goes without saying that the clear winner is obviously the Church and not Tamils, not Hindus and the refugees have become a gift to further increase numbers.

If we know the agenda it is now time for Hindus and Buddhists in both Sri Lanka and India to ensure the agenda for India, Sri Lanka and the rest of Asia is not realized and 13th amendment is removed to secure the sovereign status of both India and Sri Lanka. It is for diplomats of both nations who do not function as sepoys of the West to realize the dangers at stake and to use diplomacy to come out of the trap that has been laid against both nations and it is a good time for China to mediate given that the waterloo is eventually marked for China.

    My dear Shenali madam,

    “Tamil Eelaam = Christian Satellite State”

    NO. It is a HINDU Satellite State.

    Let me prove it with FACTS.

    LOOK at the Tamil Elam flag. Also known as the LTTE flag. ALL Tamils diaspora losers carry this TE flag.
    LOOK closely at the PUSSYCAT in it.
    LOOK on its FOREHEAD.
    What do you see?

    Hindu Vibuthi!! It is a STRONG AND PIOUS HINDU Tiger!!

    3 ash lines of them!!

    Where is the cross?

    SL flag has 4 Buddhist symbols.
    TE flag has 3 HINDU symbols. (In Hindusim each of the lines has a meaning.)

    (BTW vibuthi is made from bullsh*t).

  2. Lorenzo Says:

    So now it is OBVIOUS Tamil Elam is a HINDU and HINDUSTANI project.

    Indira was a strong Hindu woman who breastfed the LTTE. So was her son. Sonia to her credit was AGAINST the LTTE. Jeyalalitha and Karunainidhi (modern father and mother of Tamil Elam) are also HINDUS!!

    ENDIA very strongly protects Hinduism. THAT IS WHY Endia supported and still support the HINDU TIGER!!

  3. herman Says:

    Prabakaran had many faults but he atleast he had the foresight and forejudged the 13A and India correctly and appropriately took the necessary actions. Can we say the same about the majority of our politicians ?

  4. Lorenzo Says:

    Let me add a few more points.

    MOST invaders of SL were HINDUS NOT Christians.

    Christian invaders.

    1. Portuguese
    2. Dutch
    3. Brits

    HINDU invaders

    1. Ellalan
    2. Cholan
    3. Pandyan
    4. Ariya Sakkaravarthi
    5. Magha
    6. IPKF

    Twice more.

  5. Dilrook Says:

    Vasudeva Nanayakkara has stated provincial administration costs only 7% of the provincial allocation which is approximately $1.2 billion for this year. 7% of that is Rs. 10 billion which is an enormous amount of money wasted. 13A is certainly a white elephant. In addition he says the government funds schools and hospitals through the provincial councils. Why this double handling of funds? Money transfers involve plenty of administrative functions costing money and leaving more room for irregularities.

    His allegation of 95 ministers in parliament makes no sense because the provincial councils also have a large number of ministers.

    If Vasudeva Nanayakkara is going to resign over 13A he should be allowed to do so. He almost violated the Constitution when he tried to change the National Anthem. His ideology is now outdated and he is not likely to contest the next election due to poor health.

    There is no use of the 13A to the nation. It failed to bring peace during war time and in peacetime it has no use at all.

  6. hela patriot Says:

    13th amendment wll never be removed. The political henchman in the provincial council are an asset to the ruling class to subjugate the rest of the populace. why try to change it?

  7. S de Silva Says:

    End of the 13A line: Thank you Shenali & others for listing out the reasons for getting out of the 13A. Mr Basil Rajapaksa is reported to visit India to discuss these issues with Mr Khurshid of India. May be Mr Khurshid was a babe in his mum’s arms when the agreement was signed betwen SL & India! So Mr BR, would you please remind Khurshid that the agreement was ‘illegally’ imposed ‘unilaterally’ by India on Sri Lanka. And tell him that our PSC appointed by the President for the purpose will REVIEW the legality of the agreement and if found that it was signed up by SL ‘under duress’ the agreement will be ditched as an “illegal” document – end of the 13A line!!.
    S de Silva – London

  8. S de Silva Says:

    Ps: The participation of the TNA or the SLMC is not essential to determine the LEGALITY of 13A – That is a matter for the Constitutional Lawyers – SdeS

  9. mario_perera Says:

    When the least issue crops up between the National Government and the TNA

    Then the following scenarios automatically unfold:

    The TNA ‘prays’ to Delhi to intervene
    The TNA takes flight to Delhi on their own accord
    Delhi invites the TNA to come over on its own accord
    Delhi rings up Colombo and asks for an explanation
    Delhi appoints a special envoy to visit Colombo re. the matter
    A special envoy is designated by Colombo to visit Delhi

    The morale of the story is:

    The Mahanayake of Sri Lanka politics is in Delhi

    Mario Perera
    Kadawata

  10. douglas Says:

    To complete the scenario:

    USA a calls upon his Vice Roy, India appointed to oversee the affairs of the COLONY of Sri Lanka to look into the “rumpus” going on in relation to the 13th Amendment of the Constitution.

    TNA Sambandan summoned to advise the course of the action to be taken.

    The Governor of the Colony is asked for explanation.

    He sends his “Trusted Representative” to meet, explain and beg for time to heal the wounds.

    USA awaits the report of the Vice Roy – India.

  11. Fran Diaz Says:

    Also, add a financially broke EU (Britain, the best geopolitical player in the world, is also somewhat broke), and see this chicken soup thicken and sour for the poor, confused SE Asian locals, fortunately not that ignorant now. The church is the ‘spice in the soup’ (conversions).

    From the point of view of Nature & Evolution, we have to Evolve or perish. Can’t we all (Sinhela, Tamil or whatever) Evolve without all this heartbreak ? After all, Christ said : “the Kingdom of Heaven is WITHIN You”. Note: not in Eelam.
    The Buddha said : ‘Truth is WITHIN You’. And Islam means “Peace’. Are all these truisms from the major religions happening ?

  12. Mr. Bernard Wijeyasingha Says:

    If there is any reason why the 13th amendment should be revoked, abolished and amended I quote the article “Any nation in the present context being made to sign an accord as Sri Lanka had to in 1987 would have made international headlines. Sri Lanka was forced to sign an agreement, with Indian jets flying over Sri Lankan air, with Sri Lankan cabinet members made to sign blank undated letters of resignation, under emergency and excluding media and ministers being kept in a hotel and then taken for signature does not depict anything to do with democratic norms or cordial relations.”

    Daya Master is STILL SPOUTING Eelamist rhetoric, and the GOSL is trying to field him as an SLFP CAndidate in the PC Elections.

    To be PALATABLE to Northern PC residents …. he has to support Eelamist goals (See my last post on Daya Master).
    To be PALATABLE to the SLFP …. he has to WEAR an SLFP sheepskin.

    If he gets elected, which man will emerge? Another Douglas Devananda? The Eelamist or the SLFP-er? These are FUNDAMENTALLY INCOMPATIBLE positions.

    This UNDERSCORES AGAIN the FLAWS and DANGERS posed by the 13th Amendment and the Provincial Council System to survival of Sri Lanka as a UNITARY Sovereign Nation.

    If there were no PCs, the SLFP would not have to compromise its PRINCIPLES to field a PC candidate palatable to EELAMISTS! What IDIOCY is this? I am afraid, there is NO CURE FOR STUPIDITY!

    Rise Up …. O Patriots of Mother Lanka …. Rise Up to Defend & Protect your Motherland … the Barbarians are AGAIN at the Gates!

    Sri Lanka Tamil party names chief ministerial candidate for Northern Provincial Council

    ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

    July 02, Colombo: The Jaffna Branch of the Ilankai Tamil Arasu Katchchi (ITAK), the main constituent party of Tamil National Alliance (TNA), has unanimously nominated Jaffna District Parliamentarian and the general secretary of ITAK Mavai Senathirajah as the Chief Ministerial candidate to the Northern Province.

    Local media reported that former Jaffna Municipal Councilor, C.V.K. Sivagnanam, had announced that Mavai Senathiraja’s name for the candidature at a press briefing held in Jaffna yesterday.

    However, the final decision on the nomination will be taken in consultation with all the constituent parties in the alliance, TNA sources have said,

  18. Lorenzo Says:

    UPFA has to become TAMIL RACIST to have ANY CHANCE of winning SOME seats in the north PC.

    As I have said a million times MOST Tamils vote for the comparatively MOST TAMIL RACIST group.

  19. Fran Diaz Says:

    Ever since the Brits & the Dutch brought in indentured Tamil labor into Lanka to work in the tea & tobacco plantations (one and half MILLION Tamil people) Tamil Nadu supplies Lanka Labor surreptitiously via illegal Tamil migrants, and that is how the TNA today has become a powerful group to run to Delhi. Delhi has become the supreme court for both Tamil Nadu and Sri Lanka, passing advice & judgment over the so called ‘Tamil Problem’.

    The ‘Tamil Problem’ is in Tamil Nadu only in the form of the Caste Structure and attendant poverty. The Tamil Problem is grown and nurtured in Tamil Nadu. Address the problem at the Source – otherwise there is no cure for the illness.

    Sri Lanka can only give help for ALL who are poor or unemployed, not just only the Tamils who may be so. Re doing well, sector for sector, Tamils lead in Sri Lanka.

    JHU has got it right :

    ” Indo-Lanka Accord is not a valid document – JHU
    Wed, Jul 3, 2013, 12:38 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

    July 03, Colombo: An Ally of Sri Lanka’s governing party, the Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) says that the Indo-Lanka Accord is an invalid document since India had failed to honor its pledge.

    JHU General Secretary, Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka said that the Indo-Lanka Accord and the 13th Amendment to the Constitution are both invalid.

    Addressing a rally in Colombo yesterday, the Minister noted that India had failed to disarm the LTTE as agreed in the Indo-Lanka Accord.

    He explained that India had pledged to disarm the LTTE in 72 hours after entering into the agreement but had failed to do.

    Therefore, he notes that the Sri Lankan government should realize that the agreement is invalid.

    According to Ranawaka, it is a misconception to believe that power could be won in the country by holding the Tamil vote bank in one hand and the Muslim votes in the other”.

  21. Christie Says:

    We wiped out the Indian terrorist outfit. Time to stand up to India.

  22. Marco Says:

    It’s rather strange that Minister Ranawaka makes such statements only now, when he and his party have contested all Provincial Elections under the Beetal Leaf from the start. Did he not think that those PC Elections could be invalidated.
    JHU has in fact a Minister in the Western Province Council. Let him first resign as a protest.
    It all comes around to bite them!

  23. Fran Diaz Says:

    The 13-A (imposed by India under Duress in 1987) has existed for 26 yrs. Many governments have come and gone. It is only under the present government that the people have felt secure enough even to question the validity of the 13-A. Democracy has begun to show its face in Lanka !

    Remove the 13-A completely and let Democracy rule.
