The Spirit of the Christian Inquisition returns to the UNHRC to take Sri Lanka to the stake
Posted on March 4th, 2014

Shenali D. Waduge, SRI LANKA

The Christian Inquisition in Europe, Goa and other parts of the Portuguese Empire of Asia including Sri Lanka, goes down in history as one of the most horrible crimes against humanity. The Inquisition launched by the Vatican, Catholic Church, civil authorities of Spain and Portugal paved the way for a brutal legal system in most parts of Europe that lasted for over 600 years. There was neither a Rule of Law, nor respect for Human Rights nor religious tolerance in Europe during the period of the Inquisition. Heretics were burned at the stake for merely refusing to believe Christian dogma. 

In no other part of the civilized world did such brutality on such a massive scale and consistently for 600 years take place. No amount of European or Christian propaganda to the contrary will be able to erase this stark truth of savage conduct. Much of the world’s noble values e.g.  religious freedom, tolerance, respect for human and animal rights, reverence for all forms of life, acceptance of difference of opinion, peaceful co ”existence between human and animal, Social order on Dharmic principles, decision making through dialogue and consensus, non ” violence (Ahimsa) and the like are all products of Eastern wisdom.    

The state of mind that launched the Inquisition is the same state of mind that fashioned European policies and conduct resulting in plundering colonialism, crusades, transatlantic slave trade and enslavement of black, brown and yellow people, total extermination of native races such as the Australian Aborgines, Red Indians (North America), Mayas and Incas (South America), various communities of Black Africans that were illegally transported to the new world,  opium trade in China, and the Indian and Jewish Holocaust. 

 This is shameful conduct of the highest order for which there is no appropriate language to describe. The crimes are compounded by a lack of genuine atonement, apologies, and suitable compensation to victims and descendants of victims. The clash of civilizations will continue so long as this enormous debt remains unpaid. It will not be forgotten however much one side wants to do so. Scores have to be settled.     

 Inquisitorial Mindset

An Inquisitorial mindset still governs the Christian West.  At the UNHRC vote on March 22, 2012 the US and European Union (all Christian countries) sponsored resolution on Sri Lanka was adopted with 24 countries voting for the resolution and 15 against it. Eight countries abstained from voting.

 An analysis of the voting pattern at Geneva shows that the overwhelming majority of countries that voted against Sri Lanka were predominantly Christian countries (with exceptions like India, a largely Hindu nation, but governed by a Christian led Congress whose leader Sonia Gandhi (Italian born Roman Catholic) is heavily influenced by the dictates of the Vatican, and a few African countries subject to blackmail of withdrawal of foreign aid and technical assistance). Eighteen (18) of the 24 countries that voted against Sri Lanka belong to the Christian civilization and a large majority of them are from the Christian bloc of European nations.

 A similar pattern of voting was repeated in the UNHRC vote against Sri Lanka sponsored by Christian nations (USA and EU) held in March 2013.  Quite a number of the movers and co ” sponsors of the Resolution against Sri Lanka are former colonial countries that had suppressed the basic liberties of the indigenous people of Asia, Africa and America (both North and South) in the most barbaric fashion for over 500 years, and were never called upon by international criminal law to account for their colonial crimes.

 Religious Discrimination at the UN

 Since the inception of the UN in 1945 all holders of the high office of UN Secretary ” General to date have been Christians bar one i.e. Burmese U. Thant (Buddhist). No Muslim, No Hindu, No Jain have ever been offered that position despite the requirement under the UN Charter rules for rotation of incumbents based on different  civilizational backgrounds. The present incumbent Ban Ki Moon is an ardent Church going Christian fiercely loyal to the global mission of the Christian Church and its self – declared object of world conquest and domination.    

 The Christian West has no qualms of conscience or self – doubt  in manipulating international institutions and international law principles  for their  ‘self-benefit ‘ and ‘self ” advancement’, while remaining indifferent to the concerns and rights of non-European people. This fact has been well analysed by the former Indian diplomat and scholar, Dr. K.M. Panikkar in his ground breaking book ‘Asia and Western Domination – A Survey of the Vasco De Gama Epoch of Asian History 1498 – 1945, published in 1953.

 Dubious Doctrine of Different Rights for Blacks and Whites

Panikkar says that western colonial powers were reluctant to recognise that doctrines of international law applied outside Europe or that European nations had any moral obligations when dealing with Asian people. Panikkar avers that this doctrine of different rights (which made a mockery of the concepts of Human Rights and Rule of Law) persisted to the very end of western colonial domination and was a prime cause of Europe’s ultimate failure in Asia.

Hugo Grotius, Dutch jurist, was basically an imperialist. He never questioned or challenged the equity or moral validity of Dutch Colonialism which ravaged Indonesia, Ceylon (Sri Lanka) and several other parts of the world. He was a supporter of colonial adventures and always assumed that Jus Gentium rules (law of nations or international law) applied only between Christian nations of Europe, and other races, peoples and nations (outside Europe) had no right to invoke these international law principles. 

In 2012 Sri Lanka was crucified at the UNHRC. In 2013 Sri Lanka was again crucified at the UNHRC. The crime Sri Lanka committed was to take a national decision and eliminate a terrorist movement. For defying West’s orders Sri Lanka was taken to the stake twice. The inquisition against Sri Lanka is not over. In 2014 too Sri Lanka is being dragged once more gagged and cornered by UN ‘rights’ ‘freedoms’ and terminologies that keep Sri Lanka from raising her voice in defense. The relentless venom of vengeance for going against Western rule of law is why Sri Lanka is facing the torture methods no different to the ecclesiastical court set up by the Roman Catholic Church meting out brutal punishments to those who differed.

We are disappointed with India in the manner it has forsaken its rich Hindu heritage to go behind the US, the same can be said of Japan and South Korea. There was no moral authority during the Inquisition and there is no moral authority now in the manner the West is functioning using the UN as its hobby horse. All the international laws have been designed to suit the West and western cultures, thinking and norms. Every new term being used replaces all concepts that existed previously and have all to do with maintaining Western superiority over non-whites.

 Beware of the West

It is high time that Asians and Africans realized that the leaders of the West are no sincere friends. They are out to corner us, bring us down and ruin us. There is no such thing as credible institutions, their so called inquiries are nothing but inquisitions and the new ‘witness protection’ systems subtly being introduced are to ensure their rule prevails unchallenged.

That status quo can change if and when non ” white countries realize this invidious game plan and come forward to say ‘no’ and demand a reversal to the criminalities taking place under the bogey of transparency and human rights. 

 If the country belongs to us we must claim it as ours and resist incursions otherwise we will be treated like the unfortunate Australian aborigines who failed to put up a proper fight to defend their land when the British arrived and claimed ownership to Aborginal land.  The colonial principle loudly proclaimed then and even now is that ‘If you fail to defend the land from a foreign intruder you forfeit the right to claim the land as yours’.  

In Sri Lanka our ancestors, except for the treacherous Sepoys and Lascoreens, fought gallantly and protected this nation from our enemies i.e. foreign conquerors, for over 300 years ” we need to do the same. We must never give up. This is the message we need to take to the world.

    You are WRONG Shanali.

    Last time a few Christian countries voted for SL.

    Russia is a 90% Christian country with Christianity as state religion. Our BEST protection is Russia.
    Phillipines Asia’s ONLY Christian country voted for us.
    Christian Australia supports us.
    Christian South Africa supports us.

    On the other hand USA and EU don’t give a damn about Christianity nowadays. MOST of them are SECULAR countries.

    Never forget ALL Hindu countries ALWAYS VOTED AGAINST SL.

    HINDU Endia co-sponsored anti-SL resolutions in 2012 and 2013 and HINDU Murutius co-sponsored anti-SL resolution in 2014.

    Shenali D. Waduge
    Why do you bring religion in to this?
    All rulers in the past imposed their religions in to the countries they ruled. What about the Devales by the hindhus where you find them next to the Buddhist statues in our ancient temples? Our leaders are still showing their old connections of the Dravidian culture by wearing their attire. Looks like likes of separatist lobby is encouraged by our own subservience to their culture.
    Why not look in to the way the country is now governed, perhaps you are not reading the news media? lawlessness and corruption had put the government partiy’s faithful off ,judging by the poor response one his getting for the demo this Saturday, perhaps opening wide for another ‘arab rising’ which we must avoid. It’s up to the government to admister the country with the consent of the people in a free and democratic way. Leaders that fallen have found it too late to correct. it.

  3. AnuD Says:

    Many different “Arab Springs” in the middle East orchestrated and instigated by the West harmed Christians in those countries. Only thing the Church in those countries could do was to complain to the Pope.

    At present, West need more markets for consumerism, OIL and other resources, etc. So, they want regime changes in some countries. They eliminate any one that disturb them. That causes more trouble to Christians in those countries. In other words, Christians are in trouble because muslims think that it is Christian/Catholic work.

    Recently, when Anglican Arch bishop in England Stepped down, Pope requested those Anglicans to come to his church and that made lot of Christians angry. Similarly, Evangelical Church – Evangelism is Ideology and not a religion and from the American deep South – is converting even the Catholics and other Christians.

    Christians say that the Church is the most profitable company on earth.

    Buddhists are spiritual and they are not religious. Religion always has a god or gods.

  4. AnuD Says:

    This is how the things happen.

  5. Nanda Says:

    Not only Christian but also ALL Muslim countries voted for us.
    It is HIDUS and HINDU PEEILLAY’s giving us trouble.

  6. Lorenzo Says:

    Excellent point Nanda.

    1. HINDUSTAN armed and raised LTTE, PLOTE, TELO terrorists to destroy SL.
    2. HINDUSTAN invaded SL in 1987 to save LTTE from genocide and IMPOSED 13 amendment.
    3. LTTE emblam has a HINDU TIGER wearing “VIBUTHI” ash on its damn forehead.
    4. HINDUSTAN brought 2 resolutions against SL in UNHRC in 2012 and 2013.
    5. HINDU Murutius tabled the 2014 anti-SL resolution at UNHRC
    6. HINDU Navi Pee-illey is the biggest enemy of SL.
    7. HINDU Ananthi is SL’s second biggest enemy.
    8. HINDU Vigneswaran is SL’s third biggest enemy.
    9. HINDU Sambanthan is SL’s fourth biggest enemy.
    10. HINDUSTAN Kallathobis are the BIGGEST problem of SL.
    11. HINDU Karuna and HINDU Lolita are enemies of SL.
    12. Paki Sara is also a HINDU. VP was a HINDU. Pottu Amman, Karuna Amman, Soosai, Amirthalingam, bloodsuking Mangayakkarasi, etc. HINDUS.
    13. Throught history HINDU invaders tried to DESTROY Buddhism in SL as they did in HINDIA.

    e.g. Ellalan kallathoniya invaded SL just 50 years after Buddhism was introduced to IMPOSE Hindu junk.
    e.g. Chola HINDUS tried it.
    e.g. Magha Hindus tried it.
    e.g. Chakkavatti HINDUS tried it.
    e.g. Jaffna king Sakkili the HINDU king POISONED Buddhist monks and tried to wiped out Buddhism from Jaffna.

    Identify the REAL ENEMY of SL. Read history.

  7. Nanda Says:

    If you are talking about religions , People stupidly practicing Hindoo religion is the NO 1 enemy of people practicing Buddhism.
    It is Hindoo Enemy that ultimately erased Buddhism in India, even though Muslims too played a part.
    It is hard to understand but Hindoo’s have a big grudge, jealousy against Buddhism.

    Animal killers, Bhramin priest of the past had to give up not only killing but eating meat too, because of Buddhism.
    “Hinduism” which is a very recent religion as practised today is an evolution of stupid , foolish and absurd Brahmanism after making few corrections copied from Buddha’s teaching but still contains absurdity of worse than any other religion.

    1. Brahmins come from the mouth and Sudras come from the feet of the God.
    2. Woman has no place in Hindoo society. ( So the Raping continues and the woman accepts it)
    3. Karma can be erased as all Karma belongs to the God.
    4. One with the God = Moksha = Nirvana

  8. Nanda Says:

    5. The worst one is “The Fate”, called “Eranama” in Sinhala. This stupid belief make you lazily accept a lesser status and it has gone into Sinhalese minds too, like poison. Remember no “Eranama” in Buddhism, IT IS THE HINDUISM.

    6. SUICIDE is Hindu culture too. Wife is forced to commit suicide after husband’s death.

    Sri Lanka has to emerge from Endian Hindu culture if it were to develop properly.
