Please protect the Father of the Nation Mahinda Rajapaksa
Posted on May 16th, 2015
Before MR was elected to power, Sri Lanka experienced 30 years of terror and many innocent Sinhalese and Muslims and Tamils died. Terrorists destroyed assets of the State and money was wasted and no funds were available for infrastructure development. There were allegations that during CBK’s time and that of RW’s time, corruption prevented the defeat of terrorism. There were no suitable equipment in the hands of our brave soldiers, to defeat the enemy, due to poor government , planning and organisation. People were afraid to travel. GR started our own defence academy and laid foundations for development of our own defense capabilities. Both MR and GR have contributed massively to Sri Lanka, often putting their lives at risk. Our racist enemies know the genuine friends of the Sinhalese and Sri Lanka and that is why there was celebrations in TN when MR was defeated. The North and the East were no go areas for the Sinhalese. Sinhalese and Muslims were expelled from the North. If Lanka was not liberated by MR, GR and with the sacrifice of over 40000 lives of brave Sinhala youth, we would have lost Lanka for ever. If we look at our history, parts of Lanka were under the Portuguese, then under Dutch and then the whole country was taken over by the British. My view is that we got our independence, thanks to the world war 11 and not because of any effort on our part. During the recent past, MR is the leader that unified the country using our own effort , and the valuable lives of 40000 Sinhala youth. Just as racist Hitler used the lives of German youth, racist Prabakaran used the lives of Tamil youth, to satisfy his hunger for power. MR eliminated terrorism, unified the country and defended our sovereignty, self respect and non interference into our internal affairs by the West and the UNHCR As such MR is the father of the nation and modern Sri Lanka. He has to be recognised as such. We should have self respect and defending our dignity is vital.
There are media reports of harassment of MR and GR. This is something we should not allow and we need to protest. If we have any sense of gratitude, we should not harass our liberators. My observation is that those people who harass our liberators are our enemies or funded by our enemies. This is the time to have survival and fighting spirit and to dump Nirvana seeking coward’s spirit, fearful of suffering! It is also time to recognise that if we do not evolve and adapt we will die. We could learn from the Japanese and even the Sikh’s who continuously reinvent and modify their beliefs to suit their needs and the environment they live in. In my view, it is time to modify our beliefs to suit the highly competitive world we live in, where desires are valued and where it is recognised that the motivation for wealth creation is desires. Without wealth, we will end up at the bottom of the pile. In a nutshell, the whole economic system is driven by desires and if we act against known ‘laws’ of economics, we will be doomed. The most dangerous enemies we have are those that hang on to ancient Indian beliefs (that even Indians have dumped ) and those that refuse to change.
We can always protect and respect Buddhism for cultural and heritage reasons and use rituals in ceremonies as in Japan, so that Buddhism and our culture is kept alive.
We owe a great debt to MR and those who contributed to the liberation of our only homeland. MR and GRB are true heroes of the nation. We owe a great debt to them and they have to be protected and respected. It appears that MY3 govt. and Samaraweera are puppets of of the US, UK and the EU, and surrender to the demands of the West. RW looking at his previous performance, appear to worship imperialists, West and even Indians, hoping to get favours from them. Our true friends are the Chinese and the people of Pakistan who helped us in the hour of need. The so-called National Govt is totally dismantling the UPFA’s policies of safeguarding our self respect, national integrity and non interference into our internal affairs.
Where is the self respect and dignity of Sri Lanka that MR so fearlessly defended ? MY3 is well known for his famous’ handshake with the Queen’. Have we got no shame or self respect ? Have we lost our dignity and self respect again and want to end up as slaves or second class citizens. Sinhala Buddhists appear to be a nation blindly or otherwise seeking Nirvana . I want to have my dignity and self respect, along with others, and do not want to blindly follow myths (that even Indians have dumped) and that respected scientists have rejected. It appears that Tamil terrorists have regrouped and funded operations against the Rajapaksa family. The alleged 500 million massive fraud would have funded anti Lanka operations, There appears to be a Tamil terrorist link.
Let us look at a possible link. Raj Rajaratnam, a Tamil is the billionaire founder of the Galleon Group, a New York-based hedge fund management firm, He has been accused and jailed for fraud. He was the 236th richest American in 2009, with an estimated net worth of $1.8 billion. He was the 262nd richest American in 2008, with an estimated net worth of $1.5 billion. In 2009 he was the richest Sri Lankan-born individual in the world. In November 2009, Rajaratnam pledged to donate $1 million to help with the rehabilitation of the LTTEcombatants. He has donated generously to clear land mines in the war-affected areas in Sri Lanka. Rajaratnam has contributed $3.5 million to the Tamils Rehabilitation Organisation (TRO), a group whose assets were frozen by the USA due to its alleged close connections to the Tamil Tigers (LTTE). It does appear that Rajaratnam’s funds have gone to TRO, which had close links with LTTE. (Ref: Wikipedea). With so much wealth, he could do almost anything he wants and we have hardly any power to counter underhand threats. We have to recognise the problems we will face, if we blindly follow Indian myths, give up desires and end up with no wealth, as is the case now.
Mahendran, Rajaratnam links and RW links
Media has indicated alleged connections between f the Central Bank Governor Arjuna Mahendren and Rajaratnam. MP Nanayakkara said that Mahendran had been involved with Rajaratnam. The MP said that Prime Minister Wickremesinghe should be held responsible for the rip off in the bond issue. (The Island Wednesday 13th May 2015 ref: http://www.island.lk/index.php?page_cat=article-details&page=article-details&code_title=122343 )The entire business community was shocked with the blatant abuse of power of the Central Bank Governor Arjuna Mahendren. (Lanka web news ) It is well known that RW ia associated with the appointment of Mahendran. Is the link between Mahendran and RW , through Royal College ? RW is a well known fool and could be deceived by anybody and LTTE can easily fool RW. The present administration has ‘ sold’ our National anthem, it is alleged that Sinhala land given to Tamils, persons and organisations removed from terrorist links, security arrangements in the North reduced. The above acts along with the harassment of GR and MR indicate a possible LTTE connection and has to be investigated. Clearly there is evidence of a possible connection between LTTE and the present administration. This possibility has to be further investigated. It appears that there has been a smear campaign against MR and a well funded and planned conspiracy against Sri Lanka, with expert propaganda warfare being carried out. With the skill displayed in the propaganda warfare, and the ‘coup’ type conduct of those involved, it appears that there is foreign involvement We will sink and get wiped out if we blindly follow Indian myths, as we will be naive and gullible in a highly dangerous competitive world, seeking our resources.
It appears that we are slowly on our way to Nirvana, just like the Nalanda Buddhists. Indians have learnt that, in the real world, seeking money, wealth and power is far more useful and practical than seeking mythical Nirvana. It is time to wake up, just like the Indians did. To stop our decline, we have to stop blindly following very questionable Indian myths, that will lead us to economic ruin and extinction.
