Sinhalese, Please Wake-up!

Before  MR eradicated terrorism, it was not safe to travel in Sri Lanka. People who went to work in the morning were not sure if they could go home alive. Assets of the country such as transformers, power lines, transport vehicles  and railway tracks were being destroyed regularly. School children, Police officers and our brave soldiers were  getting killed regularly.  For 30 years, various governments tried to defeat terrorism but failed. LTTE spy network was so powerful and efficient that they knew the decisions of the government within a short time. There was no money for development as money was spent to defend the country. Before MR, violence, fear and lawlessness was common.   Such  was the chaos in Sri Lanka.

. In such a situation,   MR could not save the country on his own. He needed trusted people around him. So, MR’s family contributed to saving the country, specially GR. MR defeated terrorism that was  funded by foreign countries, in 3 years. In a nutshell, without MR and GR, the country would have been a south Indian colony.  MR saved the country in 3 years and undertook development projects what others could not do in 30 years. There were reports of excesses by Namal. Certainly, if true, such thongs should not  be  allowed. However, there appears to be a well funded and organised propaganda warfare against MR  and family. Propaganda warfare depends on a tiny bit of truth  and lot of lies and deception. It appears that a massive propaganda warfare  campaign has been conducted against MR  and family. Patriots need to be able to separate the truth from propaganda warfare. It appears that a foreign funded regime change has taken place and some suspect that  the present gang is  perhaps a gang of foreign puppets.

There has to be a post mortem on MR’s defeat and lessons learnt. Rule of law and press freedom are vital for development and must be safeguarded.

South Indian racist Tamils were as jubilant as the Sinhala Buddhists who  voted out MR. Sinhala Buddhists were saved by SWRD, after centuries of suppression by imperialists.  As gratitude, a Sinhala Buddist monk killed him. I wonder if this is the way some Sinhala Buddhists show appreciations to those that save them ?  The  Sinhala Buddhists did an act similar to Turkeys voting for Christmas. I  believe,  thinking mehod  of Sinhala Buddhists need to change to shred the ‘modaya’ image. They need to be aware of the surroundings, aware of external threats, engage in economic activities generating wealth rather than aiming to  give up desires and aim for extinction (Nirvana). In short we have to develop skills needed to survive in a real, globalised, dangerous competitive world, full of evil greedy people and who are trained and brain washed  to be greedy. We can no longer live as frogs in a well. In my view, giving up desires and seeking extinction are questionable ancient Indian myths that even Indians do not believe in.

The very basics of survival is first to have a desire  to survive and live. We need to understand the threats and opportunities from the environment we live in. We have to be aware of plots hatched by South Indians and Indians in general.  We need not be anti Indians  or hostile to Indians, but we have to be able to defend ourselves in case they turn nasty.  Remember they have been nasty in the past and have unleashed terrorism on us that destroyed a generation.  Learning lessons from the past would be useful. As there are serious threats for the survival of Sinhalese in Sri Lanka, there ought to be a non racist  organisation to protect the rights of the Sinhalese   from global threats from Western imperialists, global racist Tamils and Indians. The  Sinhalese  are the true minority, in a global context. Now, with globalisation, we live in a highly competitive dangerous world and blindly following Indian ‘isms’, giving up desires and seeking extinction is absolutely dangerous. Giving up desires will make a person automatically less efficient and less productive and nature will wipe out such persons, as the rule in nature is Darwinist survival of the fittest. The  only time giving up desires is therapeutic is, if you are so weak and ill and cannot do any thing. It is  a fact that we live in a highly dangerous, competitive world full of suffering , where only the fittest will survive. So if we want to survive, end suffering, we need to develop survival and competitive skills and have the desire and the will to survive, rather than aim for extinction (Nirvana). If we do nothing, then  we will reach extinction as  is happening already. It is time that Sinhalese develop critical thinking skills and use their head, shake off the modaya image and stop believing dead Indian myths and ‘isms’, that even Indians do not believe. It is far better to develop skills so as to enable Sinhalese to compete fairly and legally, rather than seek a non existent imaginary Nirvana. Anyone with no desires will not survive in the real world and nature will eliminate that person. Indians dumped ancient myths after the Nalanda debacle. It is time to think critically rather than rely on blind faith and chase a non existent Nirvana  We have to however fully respect  and safeguard  Buddhism as our cultural heritage.

The alleged insider dealings and alleged fraud involving blatant abuse of power of the new Central Bank Governor Arjuna Mahendran to help his son-in-law Arjun Aloysius has to be investigated and brought to the notice of the public as the money involved is massive. Any investigation has to be carried out by unbiased investigators.

War crimes

The LTTE terrorists were funded and trained by India. Western countries allowed bogus refugees into their countries and turned a blind eye to terrorist fund raising. Was this done intentionally   to destabilise Sri Labnka ? Indian sponsoring of LTTE terrorism is generally believed to be the intension of Indians to destabilise Sri Lanka. Our prime goal should be to be aware of external threats and opportunities and not blindly follow dead Indian ‘isms’ that even Indians have dumped. Instead of a war crimes investigation Sri Lanka should ask for compensation from the  Indians as well as those that funded the terrorists for the pain and suffering  of the Sri Lankans. Remember dollar and Kent farm and thousands of atrocities by LTTE terrorists.  Is it a crime to stop terrorism? What about nuclear bombing of Japan and incineration of Dresden ? Killing of over million people in Iraq in a naked act of aggression, under false pretexts of weapons of mass destruction ?

Funds for Tamil terrorism was raised in Western countries who turned a blind eye for fund raising. Tamil terrorists were initially trained and funded by India. Western Imperialists were pro LTTE and anti Sri Lanka. Only true friends who did not believe LTTE propaganda were Pakistan and China. Now RW appear to be embracing our enemies and antagonising our friends.

Let me quote Dr Lakputra  President Mahinda Rajapakse had to fight not only against the Tamil terrorists, but also against a global might of countries which depended on the blood money and the votes of the pro-LTTE and many local traitors and NGOs. . MR had the vision to build the Hambanthota harbour. Under his rule foundations were put in place  for economic development of the country.  It would  be true to say that there were some corrupt ministers. It would have been better to expose the corrupt ministers than to vote off the leader who saved us.

We have to accept that Sri Lanka is a multicultural country and all citizens need to work in a collaborative manner for the common good of all citizens. It is rather sad that some Tamils behave in a racist manner and Sinhalese need to defend themselves from racists. There are many good Tamils and we need to be aware of it and work with them in a collaborative manner for common good.

If the country is allowed to disintegrate, there will be no peace in Sri Lanka, as was the case in Japan and China when several war lords ruled different parts of the country.  If  the  13A is implemented, the country will lead to disintegration.  RW wants a collection of war lords to  run the country and soon war lords will be running their own areas. Wake up Singhalese ! wake up!, enough of the deep slumber.

There are reports that Sirisena is plotting against MR with India. There are reports that say Sirisena will fully implement the 13 A. People need to act to stop these acts happening. Implementing the 13A would be the end of Sinhalese in Sri Lanka.

How can the Sinhalese stop this gang  from destroying the Sinhalese and Sri Lanka. Corruption, abuse of power and nepotism of the gang need to be documented and exposed and widely circulated using social media.  Aleady we know about the central bank corruption allegations. The people in villages may have to be informed.

    Welcome back Ben.

    But it is good if you STOP bashing Buddhist principles IF you want Singhalese to TRUST you.

    Not just the Buddhists, TAMIL HINDUS will also achieve NIRVANA though they may call it by a different name.

    SL achieved GREAT MILITARY VICTORIES in the past guided by Buddhism. Nothing wrong with it.

    But the CULTURE of being NICE to all and sundry MUST change.

    “itha onda gaani emathaama budding”.

    Most of the article is well written but I do not like the Singhalese Buddhist bashing since they are the ones WHO VOTED IN RAJAPAKSE INTO POWER 3 TIMES. MOST OF THE MILITARY ARE SINGHALESE BUDDHISTS WHO GAVE UP THEIR LIFE AND LIMB FOR THE DEFEAT OF THE HINDU TAMIL TIGERS AND ELAM. LET US NOT FORGET THAT. THEY ARE STILL AROUND AFTER ONLY 5 YEARS. IF BASHING IS TO BE DONE MAKE THIS DISTINCTION ABSOLUTELY CLEAR.

    I quote from the article “The Sinhala Buddhists did an act similar to Turkeys voting for Christmas.”

    OF COURSE THE TURKS CAN VOTE FOR THE CHRISTIANS FOR THE KILLED 2 MILLION ARMENIAN CHRISTIANS AROUND 1915. IT IS CALLED “THE ARMENIAN GENOCIDE”

    The carnage was to terrible that heads of Armenian Christians were bobbing in the harbor. “Sword of Islam” read that book. The ARMENIAN GENOCIDE IS ONE THAT HISTORY HAS CONVENIENTLY FORGOTTEN SINCE GERMANY ECLIPSED THAT GENOCIDE WITH ANOTHER A COUPLE OF DECADES LATER.

    Hello Ben,
    It’s been really too long silence from your part. Very happy to see your name again in the forum. The only answer for your question “implementing the 13A would be the end of Sinhalese in Sri Lanka. How can the Sinhalese stop this gang from destroying the Sinhalese and Sri Lanka?” is nothing short of MR coming back pledging to repeal the 13th. That is the only answer many can think of.

    Thanks for bringing this to the consciousness of the Sinhala electorate while they are being cleverly ‘foxed’ by Ranil/CBK and the Yahapalanas into being DIVERTED/FOOLED into engaging in other issues like the Central Bank’s Mahendran and his diddling the Bond issue to give his son-in-law an opportunity to make some big bucks etc. etc.
    All of this will pale in significance as the nation is being slowly but surely turned into an outpost of India ably assisted by My3 and his co-conspirators who will all go down in history as the worst ever traitors to the Sinhala nation.

    ARE THE SINHALA PEOPLE AS INEPT AS THEY APPEAR TO BE TODAY?
    THE LEADERS WITH COURAGE & WISDOM WHO ARE UNAFRAID TO KICK THESE TRAITOROUS BETRAYERS OUT OF OFFICE WILL HAVE TO EMERGE SOON AND TAKE BACK THE NATION BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!

    This writer has a anti-Buddhist agenda to destroy Buddhism in Sri Lanka. He has hidden this in the fifth paragraph. He has a mental issue being not able to differentiate between suicide and purity in mind.
    He is hiding main agenda behind some people’s love of MR.
    Dear Moderator please do not delete my comments against this writer unless you are against Buddhism.

  7. Independent Says:

    I will just take 1 point of this writer.

    “The very basics of survival is first to have a desire to survive and live. ”

    Desire is not required to survive and live. Fear is generated through desire. Fear will destroy people ( if not lucky due to previous good kamma).
    If for example, if one is in a situation that a terrorist holding one at gun point, one can only escape if his mental concentration is high and does not fear impending failure. It is the same in cricket. If one fears one fails. Psychologists work on cricketer exactly teaching to get rid of FEAR. Without temporarily getting rid of desire, one cannot succeed. How about getting rid of it permanently ?

    Whether it is desire driven or due to necessity arisen without selfish desires ( for example to save someone), one can be motivated. Their is no such thing as desire is required for motivation. Once the motivation is there, what is required is concentration, happiness arisen due to success for further one’s progress.

    This writer is a Kalu Sudda who loves western values more than the Suddas and hates Buddhism. His agenda is very clear for even slightly inteleigent people.

    Bernard Wijesinghe understood this.

    Ben,
    Please bring all your logic to support MR, that is fine and all encourages you for that. But don’t try to attack Buddha Dhamma which you cannot beat, you are an ANT who is trying to destroy a huge ROCK MOUNTAIN. You will fail. Please go and see a good Psychologist.

    1. STOP bashing Buddhist principles IF you are serious about SAVING SL as I said before.

    2. STOP calling Singhalese sheep, modayas, traitors, naive, etc. IF you are serious about SAVING SL. 58% of Singhalese voted for MR. By calling them sheep, modayas, traitors, naive, etc. by MR supporters, they are chasing away EVEN the Singhalese voters. STOP it.

    Don’t try Anagarika Dharmapala tricks because you are NOT him.

    SAVE the Singhalese vote and EXPAND it. Don’t try to lose the ONLY BASTION left!!

    My3 has promised he will NOT let another 1977 happen to the SLFP. Everyone should support him. IF MR wants to SPLIT the SLFP then there is little My3 can do to save it.

    Please ask the question what is MORE important – SLFP or MR becoming PM? MR CANNOT become PM by contesting alone!! So give it up. Join hands with My3. He is a sensible leader.

    SLFP MUST be saved no matter what. MR became somebody thanks to the party. Sirima, CBK, etc. became somebodies thanks to the party. You destroy the party and everyone is stuffed. I hope REAL PATRIOTS will save the SLFP. The party that stood up to protect the nation in 1956, 2004 and 2009. United we stand, divided we fall.
