Keep President Mahinda Rajapaksa For Future generations

Revisiting the past

This article is to bring you to the recent past of Sri Lanka and analyse the influence of the United States of America (USA) and Britain on the Sri Lankan affairs. Forgetting the past is a common matter for all human beings. With the passing of time and generations, the circumstances and experiences of each generation differs. Telling stories of the past allows nations to celebrate their history as well as allowing them to learn from their mistakes. However, as we observe the unfolding political situation in Sri Lanka, I wonder if the Sri Lankan people have forgotten their past.

Horror stories during 1977 to 1990

In 1985, I was waiting at the bus stop to go to University when suddenly the police came and forced me into a police jeep; I asked for explanations but received none. A number of other university students of my locality were also brought into the police station. I constantly asked them for reasons for the arrests but no answers were given, at last, the officer in charge informed us that we were free to go. Outside, however, a CTB bus had arrived and the men who had gotten out of the bus began to beat three of us in the front of the police station. These men soon kidnapped other students and badly beat and tortured them before dropping them by the roadside. I had managed to escape from the beatings by running back into the police station, however, the police turned a blind eye and not only refused to intervene but also forced me to leave the station as soon as possible despite knowing that those thugs were still waiting for me.

This is only one true story amongst thousands of similar or worse stories that I wish to tell you as it became a focal point of my life which resulted in my desire to engage in activities to fight for the rights of the people of Sri Lanka thirty years ago. I belonged to a small group of young people who expressed their opinions about the country’s political and economic situation. We had organised a street drama group and performed around the town to educate people. We performed our drama a few times before the police came and arrested most of the actors for no apparent reason, and then subsequently made serious threats to our lives. Naturally many young people who were with me were branded as Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) and were forced to live in hiding to avoid death squads. During the JVP uprisings, some of them were detained in camps, which were run by the government. During the period of 1977 to 1990, we saw dead bodies floating in the rivers and burning on tyres all around the country. We have heard stories of torture, rape, and corruption to an unbelievable level. Below is a friend’s chilling ordeal during the United National Party (UNP) government:

I was on the way home after finishing my classes, suddenly a vehicle stopped and a few people got out of the van and kidnapped me. They blindfolded me to prevent me from seeing where I was being taken; they took me to a place that was believed to be an army camp in the south. The officer in charge removed my clothes completely and then handcuffed my hands behind my back. I saw that they were boiling the kettle but I thought it was to make tea. The officer in charge asked about my knowledge of JVP members. Since I was not a JVP member, I did not know anything about them and within a few minutes he got the kettle and threw boiling water on my body. I did not know what happened to me and after a few minutes I regained my consciousness. The officer in charge was standing in front of me with a stick and started to poke my blisters repeatedly asking the same questions.

After torturing me, I was put in a long hall with many young people who told me that they were waiting for death. The guard tortured us as he liked, the people were taken out of detention hall and every day fewer young people returned. There was a large hole with constantly burning tyres; the other captives informed me that this hole was where the bodies of the dead were burned.

I am, however, lucky to be alive today.”

I feel my friend is living evidence of the 1977 to 1990 regime. The Sri Lankan people must not forget these stories, this is the time to remember them and compare them with today.
I have kept my mother’s letters from twenty-five years ago to remind myself of the horrors and terrors under the UNP government. My mother wrote:

Dear son, do not think to come back to the village, we want to get out of our home village as soon as possible because they are killing whole families now a days. This is the curse that I received by sending two children into university, I think thousands of times about what sins I have committed by educating the two of you. Last week we snuck out of the house at night and went to your grandmother’s village your younger sister and brother slept at your uncle’s place while your father and I stayed with your grandmother. However, we could not sleep because of the fear of paramilitaries, and at midnight the paramilitary group called Black Cats began shooting the sky around your grandmother’s place. It was pouring with rain and there was a thick darkness, your father and I went into the neighbour’s backyard and spent the whole night under the trees.”

How many parents and young people have experienced this same story or worse in the past? How many sleepless nights had people spent during the rule of the UNP government from 1977 to 1994? Did you discuss these experiences with others? The time has come to tell your stories to revisit the past. There are numerous stories to tell, however, I have limited space in this article to write them all

28th of July 1989
My dear son, please listen to this carefully. Please do not do anything bad or join any political organisation to take revenge as many of the young people would do today. I wish God would looks after us. As you know, there are times when we do not sleep in our house now but your father has slept in our neighbour’s shed at the back of the house, therefore he saw everything. The day before yesterday twelve people came to our place in a couple of vehicles. They wore black masks and completely destroyed our family home, whatever we earned in our lifetime has been lost. My dear listen carefully, your fiancée is also a university student and is no longer safe in neighbouring villages. They torture, rape and kill mothers, daughters, and sisters all together. We managed to send your fiancée out of her village. She is hiding in Colombo. We will find a way to give you the address later but don’t go there, your life is in danger.

30th of August 1989

My fiancée wrote to me in August 1989. This was a common story for many young women in Sri Lanka during the UNP rule that many Sri Lankans may have forgotten.

My love, I am happy that you were able to escape from the horror by leaving this country but my life is not safe yet. I am still hiding in one of those convents; your parents, brother and sister are in four different places. They have become refugees in their own country. The day you left, the Black Cats kidnapped your friend’s elder brother and brought him into my neighbour’s house then they killed him. They killed my neighbour’s ten-year-old son, the sixteen-year-old girl, and shot my neighbour’s sixty-two-year-old mother before burning the house down. I wish I could leave this country as soon as possible before they find me, because I have heard stories that they rape and torture women before they kill them. Our dream to finish our education and build our own family is nowhere to be seen my love. The universities were closed indefinitely. The dead bodies of the young are burning on tyres everywhere in this county.”

Seventeen years under UNP rule

The experiences above were the experiences of thousands of mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, wives, and children of this nation during the 17 years of rule under the UNP government. The above stories were only briefly explained due to the limited space of this article, these were only a few stories on the south of Sri Lanka, but what about the war with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) terrorists? The life of Tamil, Muslim and Sinhalese people during the UNP rule and under President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga who had failed to deal with the LTTE, was full of misery, the fear of bombings was everywhere in the nation. What was the situation of the parents, of the soldiers, who went north to fight terrorism? How many times did the LTTE overrun military camps by killing more than a thousand soldiers at a time? The people in the broader villages who lived under the constant fear of attacks from the LTTE. How many times did the LTTE massacre villages before Mahinda Rajapaksa’s government? What about Tamil parents who lost their children to the LTTE as child soldiers?

The foreign powers and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) in Sri Lanka and abroad who are shedding crocodile tears about Sri Lanka today did nothing to stop the killing of young people by the government paramilitaries because of a perceived opinion that the struggle of youth was to establish a left wing government. ‘Champions of human rights’ never questioned the killing of JVP leader and JVP’s whole politburo during that time.

Under the 17-year rule of the UNP, numerous artists and journalists were killed such as prominent journalists Richard De Zoysa and Premakeerthi de Alwis. The people who are crying for the freedom of the press today were responsible for many deaths of journalists in the past. Were there any demonstrations that were left alone by thugs during the UNP rule? Our people must remember those demonstrations were not dealt with by official police but rather by thugs. It was not just ordinary people were killed. How many Buddhist monks were killed and jailed under the UNP rule?
As a nation we should not forget how former President J.R. Jayawardene abused his powers without limits. Firstly, he suspended Mrs Sirimavo Bandaranaike’s democratic rights and kept her out of politics for years, I wonder how Ms Chandrika Bandaranaike has supported the UNP leaders despite knowing the difficult times that her mother went through during the UNP era.

Mr J.R. Jayawardene did not stop from there, he then held one of the most corrupted referendum’s in Sri Lanka’s history to extend his term for another six years. Mr J.R. Jayawardene then sacked 80,000 employees who conducted peaceful industrial actions to improve their working conditions. It was later reported that a number people who lost their jobs committed suicide. He not only sacked innocent employees but also proudly stated that the elephant only needs to shake its trunk implying the power of the UNP.

The UNP imposed a state of emergency during their rule and ministers were given the powers of the Superintendent of Police (SP). Ministers were seen entering election polling stations with thugs and forced voters to vote for the UNP.

Former president Mr J.R. Jayawardene demanded undated resignation letters from a number of UNP members of his parliament, including those who are today’s UNP political leaders. However, despite this disregard for basic rights, these UNP leaders did not speak out against the violation of their democratic rights. Can the people trust the leaders who did not have the courage to stand up for their own rights to stand up for the Sri Lankan people?

The UNP regime was responsible for Black July that killed many Tamil people and killed the Tamil leaders, who were in the prison and escalated the ethnic problems in Sri Lanka to unexpected levels. The banning of JVP as a political party also led to the killing of many Sinhalese youth as forcing the JVP to go underground created insurgency in the South. Amnesty International estimated the death toll at 40,000 while the European Parliament delegation in 1992 put the figure as high as 65,000. According to Prins Gunasekara (1998)

President Jayewardene, in 1987, openly exhorted the security forces to ‘KILL, KILL AND KILL THE BRUTES’ and passed indemnifying legislation to cover the criminality of his command an its executioners. Extra judicial executions, torture and disposal of dead bodies without inquest took place on an unprecedented scale.”

Did any foreign powers push for an investigation or accuse the UNP of committing crimes against humanity? The answer is no, the UNP were acting as agents for foreign powers for many years therefore the United States and Britain never wanted to act on the crimes committed by the UNP.

As prime minister for a very short period, Mr Ranil Wickramasinghe was responsible for one of the darkest betrayals of our nation by exposing the army intelligence unit to the LTTE, which resulted in the deaths of nearly all members of the army intelligence unit. This article is too limited to expose the sheer number of wrongdoings by the UNP government.

This is the time to compare past governments and leaders with the present government and President Mahinda Rajapaksa. The political leaders who are proposing alternative leaderships have failed in the past; they have not proved their capacity to rule this country or to lead this nation towards a better future.

History teaches us that leader who loves their people, or governments who serve their people may not be able to safely govern as the truth can be overcome by lies and misguided propaganda by various external forces whose ultimate purpose is to destroy the nation.

Changing Sri Lanka’s current government is arguably not the desire of the Sri Lankan people but rather the desire of various foreign forces. The economic freedom of developing nations is not necessarily the same path as developed nations. Unfortunately, any leader who takes actions to change developing nations for the interest of their people is stepping into a collision course with foreign powers.
At present, President Mahinda Rajapaksa is contesting with a few of the world powers. I believe Sri Lanka’s direction does not serve the interest of these powers, instead, it provides an example to other developing nations to stand up against world powers. As a result of President Rajapaksa’s firm stance, it is necessary for a few world powers to change the current Sri Lankan leader by any means before Mahinda Rajapaksa establishes Sri Lanka and himself on the world stage.

There are many examples in the world for us to observe today. The world powers exploit the weaknesses of nations to achieve their objectives. Various foreign forces are spilling millions of dollars to change the Sri Lankan government as was done in the past to many other nations. The people in Sri Lanka must wake up and revisit the history of Sri Lanka and the world to overcome the next difficult hurdle that our nation is facing today. The Sri Lankan people need to make an independent judgement to protect the current president for the benefit of the nation.

As world development progressed, empires were created such as the Roman Empire, the Ottoman Empire, the British Empire, and so on. Each empire expanded their powers over the world and manipulated other countries for their interests.

In 1492 when, what is now known as the United States of America (USA), was discovered the indigenous population of North America was between 1.8 million to 12 million. Countries such as Australia, New Zealand, and many others also had a considerably large indigenous population, however, upon the arrival of European settlers they were slaughtered and now make up the minorities of these nations. We must pay our gratitude to our ancestors who protected our nation otherwise Sri Lanka would have been another white nation such as Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United States of America.

One must understand that crimes against humanity were partly committed to gain economic prosperity and to control the natural resources of the world. However, colonisers had reasons to justify their actions of the past as they do today.

The Ancestors of our nation

The ancestors of our nation fought against foreign powers more than three hundred years from 1505 to 1815 for freedom. The strategies of foreign powers are the same as in the past they have not changed. Unfortunately, some of our political leaders have failed to understand that we are in the process of repeating history. The power to stop repeating history and protect Sri Lanka’s future is in the hands of the Sri Lankan people.

As a Sri Lankan who wants to free and protect our nation, we must remember how our nation was handed over to foreign powers in 1815. The conspiracies and strategies were plotted to frustrate the people against the last king of Sri Lanka. We must know that the conspiracies of opponents may portray leaders as evil as was what happened to the last king of Sri Lanka.
In the last kingdom of Kandy, Ehelepola Nilame’s decision to replace Sri Wickrama Rajasingha as a Sinhala king may have been done with good intentions, however, ultimately Ehelepola helped the British to succeed in what the Portuguese and Dutch could not do for three centuries. In the current political climate, each one of us must question our selves and ask if we are going to do the same to Sri Lanka again by changing our president after falling for the propaganda of foreign agents.

Strategies of foreign powers

Sri Lankans who want to protect our nation have a responsibility to understand the global issues and make their own judgements concerning our country. This is the right time to find out about the strategies used by world powers to change the leaders of many countries. Why and how the conspiracies of foreign powers have changed and killed great leaders such as Patrice Lumumba of Congo, Dr Salvador Allende of Chile, and Sukarno of Indonesia around forty years ago, should be explored and understood.

Patrice Lumumba of Congo

It is estimated that Belgium King Leopold II was responsible for the deaths of two million to ten million Congolese people between 1885 to 1908. It has been argued that King Leopold II was responsible for the highest number of deaths second only to Adolf Hitler.
The Congo’s independence leader and first Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba was overthrown by a coup organised by the Belgium government, Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and the local army chief Mabutu in 1961. Mabutu and his Belgium backers imprisoned Mr Lumumba and later had him executed. The United Nations’ forces who were already in the Congo due to the ongoing crisis failed to intervene.

Dr Salvador Allende of Chile

The life of Dr Salvador Allende ended on the 11th September 1973 by a United States of America backed coup against his government. As a member of the socialist party, the first Marxist president elected in Latin America, Dr Allende adopted a policy of nationalization of industries and the strengthening of the public sector. The political opponents who did not support nationalisation and the strengthening of the public sector joined forces with foreign powers to overthrow President Salvador Allende’s government. On the 11th of September 1973 the military, sponsored by the United States Central Intelligence Agency moved to oust the democratically elected Chilean president. The troops led by General Augusto Pinochet surrounded the presidential residence of Chile. The president’s security and staff resisted which resulted in a gun battle between both sides. At some point during the coup President Allende died, the manner of his death remains controversial.
However, General Augusto Pinochet refused to return the country to a democracy and thus, Chile was ruled by the military for 41 years with the support of United State of America. General Pinochet was responsible for killing and torturing many of his opponents and was branded as a dictator.

It is important to identify the traitors of the nation who conspire to destroy our nation whilst pretending to be our saviours. President Mahinda Rajapaksa has laid solid foundations to secure a prosperous future for Sri Lanka. The current government is adopting policies for the improvement of the public sector as these will better serve the nation in the future. Unfortunately, a few of the world powers are not satisfied with the current arrangement and have a desire for their private businesses to control Sri Lanka. The policies of the common candidate, Maithripala Sirisena are leaning towards privatisation which would satisfy the world powers requirements, which, ultimately, would destroy this nation.

Sukarno of Indonesia

Mr Sukarno became the leader of the Indonesian independence movement in 1927, he fought for the country’s independence from Netherland. In 1945, Sukarno became the first president of the Republic of Indonesia. Sukarno who was leaning toward leftist ideas straightened the public sector of Indonesia, which upset foreign powers. The disposing of Sukarno by General Suharto, which was claimed to have been supported by the CIA eventually resulted in what has been estimated at more than 500,000 Indonesian deaths. Even today, people in Indonesia find mass graves. It is important to look into these past events as there are clear parallels between them and the current events taking place in Sri Lanka at the hands of world powers.

Above I have cited three events to warn the Sri Lankan people. The current common opposition candidate and his supporters are nothing more than a group of individuals who want to destroy our nation for their own personal gain. They are the representation of Mabutu of Congo, General Augusto Pinochet of Chile, and General Suharto of Indonesia. The Sri Lankan people must be wary of real intentions and the role of the common opposition alliance headed by Maithripala Sirisena.

Recent Western plots

If we extend the discussion further, Sri Lankans must observe the recent events taking place in a number of other countries. We should open our eyes to see the disasters that have befallen many countries; look at the countries which have become killing fields, war infested lands that have allowed world powers to earn an income from arm sales that permits this continuing war mongering business at the expense of people’s lives.

Further, observe who is behind the breaking up and destruction of Russia, Yugoslavia, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Ukraine and many African countries. The people of Sri Lanka must find the correct facts about the leaders of many nations who stood up against foreign powers such as Slobodan Milosevic of Yugoslavia, Saddam Hussein of Iraq, Muammar Gaddafi of Libya. These leaders may not have been the ideal leaders for their people but two things are clear

1. They stood against United States and British aggression
2. Their countries were destroyed and went into chaos after they were ousted.

It is the people’s choice to believe how much of the propaganda against those leaders are correct. The common opposition alliance is moving towards sending Mahinda Rajapaksa to the same fate as some of the above leaders with the aid of a number of foreign powers simply due to President Rajapaksa’s decision to strengthen the public sector and not obey the desires of a few powerful nations.

Ethnic issues in the world

The strategy of division of a nation is a main tool used by foreign powers to prevent any nation from becoming powerful enough to challenge them, and lays the foundations for weak small nations to manipulate other nations. Sri Lanka is also an easy target, Sri Lanka’s position in the Indian Ocean can be used to destabilize the emerging world powers of China and India.
The Sri Lankan people must not make a mistake by changing the current president by listening to the opposition. Remember ethnic groups can be pushed into believing ideals that will create or divide a nation.

As Sri Lankans, we should learn from the issues of Israel and Palestine. Israel was largely created by the idea of Zionists encouraging thousands of Jews in Europe to migrate into the present day Palestine. The United Nations agreement allowed more than 700,000 Jews to migrate to Palestine and removed Palestinian people from their homeland to create the State of Israel. It is important to remember that Jews were exiled from the land of Jerusalem 2000 years ago, however, to solve the issues of Jews in Europe, foreign powers created the State of Israel. The solution of the United Nations was one of the reasons that led to the war between the Israelis and the Palestinians, which has lasted for more than five decades and continues today.

It is important that Sri Lankans pay attention to how the former president of the United States of America, Harry Truman was under pressure from Zionists to make a decision for the creation of the State of Israel, which satisfied the leaders of the Zionist movement.

I am sorry gentlemen, but I have to answer to hundreds of thousands who are anxious for the success of Zionism. I do not have hundreds of thousands of Arabs among my constituents.” – President Harry Truman (Tekiner, 1989, as cited in Jews for Justice in the Middle East, 2001).

The same situation may arise today with the Tamil diaspora who possesses voting power in Europe, Canada, and America to influence the election results of those countries.
The people of Sri Lanka must not make the same mistakes as other nations have done. Foreign powers may use the Tamil diaspora who left Sri Lanka many years ago, who were never born in Sri Lanka to encourage of the idea of a Sri Lankan Tamil homeland as it is an easy target. In order to obtain power, our opportunistic political leaders may use the aforementioned idea, giving false hopes to the Tamil people. The Tamil diaspora, which left Sri Lanka long ago, may not understand the struggles of Sri Lankan Tamils and their sufferings and ordeals, instead the foreign Tamil diaspora may contribute to the plots to divide and destroy Sri Lanka.

It is believed that thousands of years ago our ancestors left Africa and migrated all around the world. Tribes were formed, boundaries were created, and the way of life of each tribe was established as culture. It is argued that we are all the same; science has proven that our environment conditioned the colour of our skin, and our physical appearance. The Europeans who left Europe for exploration to the United States of America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and many other countries do not identify themselves as European. They identify themselves as Americans, Canadians, Australians and New Zealanders.

It is time for people to understand a new Sri Lanka with an ethnic composition of a multicultural society. The Sinhalese, Tamils, Muslims, and other nationalities who were born in this country are Sri Lankans. This is the time for Sri Lankans, whether they are Sinhalese, Tamil, or Muslims to stand together united as Sri Lankans.

To enjoy democracy and human rights we should not divide our nation into ethnic provinces, as arguably this is a solution of foreign powers to divide and rule countries. It does not serve the interests of developing nations such as Sri Lanka to encourage a feudal mentality that traps the people. The people of Sri Lanka must come forward to make Western solutions the history of this nation, not the future of our country. The question people should ask is why powerful nations never advocate ethnically based power dissolutions in their own countries but promote power dissolution in other countries. If people elect the common opposition candidate, the future will be that of destruction and war. Although, it is elaborated as an ethnic issue, Sri Lanka’s issues are economic and a problem of fair income distribution that can be solved through the economic development of our country.

In summary

Look at the past regime of the United National Party from 1977 to 1994; remember the horror and fear of that period in every aspect of life. Think about Black July that resulted in the deaths of many innocent Tamil people, which destroyed the reputation of our nation. Remember the 1989 Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna uprisings where thousands of young lives were lost. Remember the war with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, the fear of explosions, the loss and destruction of lives of soldiers and villages. Think about the loss of lives of Sri Lankan people because of the war. It is the time for our people to think of solutions for our nation and to reject Western solutions for our nation.

Compare the present leader against past leaders; compare the achievements of our country during the past nine years, during and after times of war and natural disasters such as the tsunami. It is important that people who want to free and liberate our people reject the common opposition candidate who does not have any local solutions but rather foreign solutions for our nation. The people of Sri Lanka must foresee the danger of making a party-less individual as the president of our nation.

If any attempts are made to divide Sri Lanka into separate countries or to hand Mr Mahinda Rajapaksa to the International Criminal Court in Hague, an uprising will occur which will eventually destroy our country. The disasters that will occur if the common opposition candidate is elected will never be reversed; therefore, the future of our nation is in the hands of the people. Protect our nation by electing Mr Mahinda Rajapaksa again.

The people of our nation may have to prepare post-election for the plans of the United States and Britain to topple President Rajapaksa by orchestrating similar protests that have been used to change democratically elected leaders elsewhere.

The Sri Lankan people must come together for Sri Lanka and for the current president Mr Mahinda Rajapaksa for the future of our nation.

    CERTAINLY, the Winner of tomorrow’s election should address the “Tamil Issue” in Sri Lanka, but NOT BY DEVOLVING POWERS, but by

    1. REPEALING the 13th Amendment,

    2. DISSOLVING the Provincial Councils and replacing them with DISTRICTS administered by GOSL APPOINTED Government Agents,

    3. BANNING ALL COMMUNAL political organizations,

    4. PROSECUTING & PUNISHING all those who VIOLATE TREASON LAWS by conniving with foreigners to DESTABILIZE and UNDERMINE the nation, and

    5. PROHIBITING foreign NGOs from interfering in Sri Lanka’s internal politics and religious matters, and monitoring their activities closely.

    In the meantime, INDIA can BUTT OUT of Sri Lanka’s internal politics and attend to its own knitting by uplifting its people from abject poverty and endemic societal discrimination.

    This may come as a surprise to Indians, but Sri Lanka is FAR AHEAD of India in assuring SOCIAL EQUITY and does not consider India as a superior model for Sri Lanka to follow.

    Sri Lanka winner must address Tamil issue: BJP

    ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

    Jan 07 (NK) The winner of the Sri Lankan presidential election Thursday must first address the Tamil issue, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Vijay Jolly said Wednesday.

    “Whoever wins in Sri Lanka should first address the Tamil issue,” he said, wishing “all the best” to both President Mahinda Rajapaksa and the opposition candidate Maithripala Sirisena.

    He said a peaceful, free and fair election was necessary for democracy in Sri Lanka.

    “The devolution of powers, re-starting dialogue with Tamil National Alliance leaders and settlement of all pending Tamil issues is necessary for lasting peace in Sri Lanka,” Jolly said in a statement.

    To preserve thy immortal flame!

    The Lion Flag flutters proudly aloft,
    To remind us this freedom’s day!
    Our duty to keep thee, safe and strong,
    As our forefathers did yesterday!

    A Mahinda Rajapaksa by deed and word,
    Strode forth boldly to eternal fame!
    To lead his people to a safer world,
    When all others retreated in shame!
