Sri Lanka was  resplendent under President Mahinda Rajapakse.
Posted on February 29th, 2016

By Charles.S.Perera

Sri Lanka a resplendent Island, became cancerous and mutilated as its population changed and other cultures crept into it. The worst was the advent of   Tamils in to the Island.  They came as invaders, plunderers, and marauders.  They  eventually settled down, but never wanted to  mix with the indigenous population the Sinhala.  They maintained the foreign invader- marauder  mentality. Hundreds  of years of living together with the Sinhala have failed to change the Tamil mentality of separateness.

All these talk about reconciliation, giving into all the demands of the Tamils, settling them in their own lands closing down the military camps, developing  the North and east where the Tamils  live in numbers , or give them political rights, police powers and power over lands, will not change the Tamil mentality.  Even the latest gimmick of marriages between Tamil and Sinhala will have the least impact of stubborn Tamil marauder mentality of  taking the loot and runaway to enrich oneself and the tribe.

If the inter marriage helps reconciliation  it would not  have made Wigneswaran the Chief Minister of Northern Provincial Council such a virulent racist.  Because one would expect of him  to be linked to Sinhala by the marriage of his two sons to two Sinhala women. Now Wigneshawaran says he is opposed to  intermarriages.  Can he be credited with any intelligence for making such a statement ?

Giving into Tamil demands will never help reconciliation  of  the Tamils  with the Sinhala accepting to live in cordiality with the Sinhala. They will never be satisfied until part of the country is given for them as a Tamil Eelam.  This  the yahapalanya leadership of Maithripala-Raniil has failed to grasp.  They do not know that giving into India with ETCA and other such agreements will  only  enhance and strengthen the separatist mentality of the Tamils and their insistence for a separate Eelam State.

The worst is that the ordinary Tamils have no voice, and the freedom to speak for themselves.  Hence  they move with the political leadership.  And  unfortunately when we speak of Tamils in political terms we take every one of the Tamils under the umbrella of the Tamil political leadership.

President Mahinda Rajapakse, too failed to understand this basic mental make up of the Tamils and took considerable pain to develop the North and East where the Tamils live and were affected by the Terrorism of their own people.  President Mahinda Rajapakse expected  an eventual demonstration of  human gratitude by the Tamils, accepting  that President Rajapakse is a friend, of the people and that he did not differentiate one community from another accepting every one of all Communities as the people of Sri Lanka.

Mahinda Rajapakse was not an enemy of the Tamil people. His enmity was towards the terrorists. He said there are no majority and minority but good or bad Sri Lankans

The Tamils do not understand to what extent the Sinhala people have given into their unjust and unfair demands. Tamils are all over the world in different countries.   But they do not ask for equal rights with the majority community  of those countries as they do in Sri Lanka.   The Yahapalanaya continues to say that Malaysia and Singapore has developed far better than Sri Lanka, but they do not understand that neither Malaysia nor Singapore had a problem with the Tamil Communities in their countries and they did not have to suffer under terrorism as Sri Lanka did. The Tamils in Singapore and Malaysia have become a part of the people of Malaysian  and Singapore.

We should understand friends and enemies, otherwise Sri Lanka will fall again into what it had been before.  That is the greatness of Mahinda Rajapakse  which the power crazy yahapalanaya crowd  fail to see.  Certain people pretend they are friends but they have hidden motives behind their friendship.  America and the Western countries are such pseudo friends.   America will never give financial or technical aid for the development of poor countries.  But they on the other hand would willingly  get their United Fruit Companies to invest to buy  or lease thousands of fertile land to cultivate fruits or sugar cane as they cultivated pine apples  in Philipines , banana in Central Africa, Sugar cane in Dominican Republic etc. After that the Fruit Companies  will control the finance and the political system of the countries.

The wise leader Mahinda Rajapaksa did not fall into that trap of the West.  The Ministers of Yahapalanaya Government are completely unaffected by these historical facts of how developing nations in Latin America and Africa were financially and politically controlled by American Fruit Companies.  Mahinda Rajapakse did not  want to antaganise the West,  but he knew which countries could be trusted as political friends and which not.

It is hilarious to hear John Kelly the Secretary of State of USA telling visiting Mangala Samaraweera  with his yes Sir” mentality , that USA hails the reconciliations attempts of Sri Lanka government and its  efforts to address the regional issues and make peace in their own country as significant. Kerry says USA will further strengthen and broaden the relation ship between the two countries.

The people of Sri Lanka unfortunately has not seen these significant developments USA speaks of taking place in the interest of the people since 9th January,2015.

What people of Sri Lanka have seen happening in Sri Lanka is a decadence of the splendour of Sri Lanka which was built under the former President Mahinda Rajapakse. John Kerry speaking in superlatives  of the  significant achievements are in gfact the benefits coming to America  from the break away from the past economic and social developments  of Sri Lanka independent of  Western  interference.

It was China that helped Sri Lanka in development process after the elimination of terrorism and not USA now with its fine talk complementing the present Yahapalanaya crowd in its  destruction of  all that Mahinda Rajapakse built  to  make Sri Lanka  a resplendent Island which it had never been since  Colonization.

It is easy for USA to shower  their adulation on  the present Yahapalanaya crowd of Ministers who have brought Sri Lanka  under dictates of USA. The yahapalana Minsters Mangala Samaraweera basking in their  flattery says   the relation between our two countries  alone has experienced  a veritable renaissance since the visit of Assistant Secretary Biswal weeks after the Presidential elections and my visit to Washington… our relations have been strengthened to unprecedented heights.”

But what has USA given to Sri Lanka before or even today , other than  passing  vicious resolution accusing the Armed Forces for war crimes and help the separation of communities in Sri Lanka.  JR Jayawardhana was nick named yankee Dicky for his strong support of  USA.  JR trusted in the friendship of USA to help him out  from being bullied by India. But USA works according to its political agenda and  turned away from JR when he needed  USA the most. When Indian Air Force dropped  dry ration to terrorists under siege and forced JR to come  to an agreement with India to settle the terrorists issue, JR expected USA’s intervention, but USA dropped  him  like a hot brick.

Interest USA  has in Sri Lanka is   given in  an evaluation  report prepared for the US State Department, by the US Agency for International Development.  It is called:  Sri Lanka: The Impact of  PL 480 Title I Food Assistance” dated  October,1982. It is stated in this report that

two factors give Sri Lanka an international importance  greater than its  modest size and economic  position might otherwise suggest: its strategic location and its influential role in both the nonaligned movement and the group of 77.

(http://pdf.usaid.govt/pdf docs/PNAAJ623.pdf)

USA has no other interest in Sri Lanka, other than its strategic position in the Indian Ocean.  But Yahapalanaya big shots          are highly taken up by John Kerry’s sweet words and think that every thing will be hunky-dory for Yahapalanaya, with USA at its side.

If Mahinda Rajapaksa had turned to USA, after elimination of terrorism, instead of  to China.  Sri Lanka would not have been what it was on the 8th January,2015.  There would not have been that massive development within such a short time.

Even if Rajapaksas had swindled money, stolen gold , took bribes and laundered black money, the Rajapaksas  had within five years after elimination of the ruthless terrorists developed Sri Lanka as no previous governments  had done since Independence.  They developed the country not only in the North and East but also in the South.  They raised the standard of living of the people.  They brought peace into the country and assured security. That period of President Mahinda Rajapakse was the golden period of Sri Lankan history after Independence.

But within one year of coming in to power, since 9th January,2015, the yahapalanaya has turned Sri Lanka upside down.  Only thing the Yahapalanaya government has shown is capable of doing is to make Sri Lanka a Police State. Creating special police Investigations sections, Commissions of Investigations, appoint a Chief Justice, an Attorney General  and a Bribery Commission and arrest every one who has the slightest connection to the Previous government.   Their target is to arrest if possible the former President Mahinda Rajapaksa or failing that  arrest and jail his sons, brothers , or even his wife to humiliate  him and scandalise his period of Presidency.

The Yahapalanay  from President to the cop in the street  have gone absolutely mad” with power in their hand to do what they want. There is  a yahapalanaya MP  Nalin Bandara Jayamaha who says that Mahinda Rajapaksa has done nothing beneficial to Sri Lanka. They say any thing without taking facts into consideration…..they are sick in their minds.

They pay lip service to democracy, but to day democracy is doomed in Sri Lanka, it is the Dictatorship of the Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe that exists. If they want to sign agreements with India  they do it without  even consulting the people, they build bridges to connect Sri Lanka to South India without consulting the people. They praise USA and the West  welcoming  their  resolution which condemns Sri Lanka and accuses its Armed Forces for war crimes . They not only welcome the resolution but sponsor it.  The Yahapalanaya leaders  and Ministers should  not be in a government but in a mad house to have their heads examined.

Sri Lanka that was a resplendent Island under Mahinda Rajapakse is today  a mis managed , ruined derelict, shabby and ugly floating like boat  without direction  as to which way to float.

    I will summarize as follows. Today MR is involved with the opposition. People must force MR to be COMMITED. If not; with reference to Mangala’s speech to the Peace Council in Washington D.C. will be believed by average person. Sad but it is true Force to take the blame because he did not jail the criminals like CBK; he pardoned them. Who was his advisor to use Vass as the Compliance Minister and all the Embassies to come under him? Today what is he doing with his wife? He is saying how MR did the money laundering.

  2. Fran Diaz Says:

    Here is the picture, briefly, Past & Present :

    * During and after the War with the LTTE, MR had to work with the available material he had at hand, both re Resources & People. For Resources during the War with the LTTE he turned to China, Pakistan & USA and a few other countries. USA helped train the SL Army and also located the Sea Tiger Arms ships (12 or so) parked in the Indian Ocean, and thus destroy the main LTTE arms supplies.
    * MR worked with the People available, the good, the bad and the ugly, same as Yahap now. As the President of that time, his was the Duty to protect the People & the Country and he discharged his duties admirably well.

    So, what MR do wrong ? NOTHING, only minor glitches here and there. Some of these glitches are highly exaggerated (Sadistic component of Yahap), and the rest are FALSE charges.

    We think ALL leaders of Lanka, from the time of SWRD, went wrong in NOT removing the Tamil Language (N&O) in Lanka. We think this was to bring in cheap Tamil Dalit labor from Tamil Nadu.

    Why ?

    During the COLD WAR times (1946-1991 and the aftermath time period too) this turned into a EELAM call. Tamil Leaders flourished under Colonial British Rule. They intended to keep that lead, and thus the Eelam call with the Vadukoddai Resolution attached (1976) – still in Cold War times. The Eelam call was popular as it was seen as a means to remove the Dalit Caste bind that the Tamils suffer in Tamil Nadu (Caste is in their BIRTH CERTIFICATES IN TAMIL NADU. Not so in Lanka). If there was no Caste problem for some 15 Million Tamil Dalits of Tamil Nadu, then the Eelam call would have died a natural death. The rest is history.

    Note well that during the COLD WAR times of UNP JRJ ultra west govt :
    * That it was INDIA that trained the LTTE in Tamil Nadu.
    * INDIA imposed the 13-A on the ultra west UNP JRJ govt.
    * The 1983 Riots happened during ultra west JRJ times.

    Certain western powers encouraged the Separatism later to suit their own agendas.

    The LTTE ran amok in Lanka for nearly 30 yrs killing, murdering all and sundry and damaging property at will. All Talks with them failed, including Talks with the CBK/RW duo.

    **** Note well that this is the PAST that the MR govt and the Armed Forces of Lanka had to face ! ****
    They won through in spite of all odds against them. They saved the Nation, using whatever available Resources.

    LOOK AT THEIR PLIGHT TODAY !
    Yesterday’s HEROES are standing in the docks on trumped up charges by an errant Yahap govt. What is done in the pretext of inquiring into the UNHRC FALSE War Crimes Investigation is UNJUST.

    Yahap has to hasten the process of the FALSE War Crimes charge and state categorically that THERE WERE NO WAR CRIMES, or if there were minor ones, appoint a Military Court to inquire, as per the Law of the Land.

    Today, Lanka’s PEOPLE have LOST their sense of Freedom and Justice through the Yahap govt no following Law of the Land. Today, Lanka is governed by a Fascist/Sadistic Dictatorship under RW/CBK. The present President is almost non-existent. The present President appointed Ranil as Exec PM ‘because the west wants it so”. We will never forget that line.

    We will never forget these times of grave INJUSTICE IN LANKA toward those WHO SAVED THE NATION. We construe it as Grave Injustice to the People of Lanka.

    Even at this late stage, all leaders of Lanka must get together and remove the Tamil Language (N&O), as this Tamil Language issue is a call for the Death Knell of the Nation.

    The People of Lanka must always have a Right to Protect themselves and the Country from invasions and divisions.

    Therefore,

    * Deliver a verdict of NOT GUILTY for the MR GOVT & THE ARMED FORCES OF LANKA re the FALSE War Crimes charges, ASP !

    * REMOVE THE TAMIL LANGUAGE (N&O) THROUGH AMENDMENTS. ALSO REMOVE OFFICIALLY THE VADUKODDAI RESOLUTION OF 1976.

    * RESTORE LAW & ORDER FOR ALL OF LANKA.

  3. Fran Diaz Says:

    Add :

    Also REMOVE THE 13-A. It was an illegal piece of legislation, imposed under DURESS by INDIA during the ultra west JRJ govt.

    Many more Laws in Lanka needs reviewing and additions and deletions. Over to the Lawmakers of Lanka !

  4. stanley perera Says:

    Basil under MR government gave Rs.250,000 per Tamil family, bycycles, sewing machines, gas coockers and coocking utensils and what not. Tamil mentality never changed. Only a handful of Tamil people appreciate what was given to them. Tamil state in the North, Tamil pocket states in the East, Wellawatte, Colombo and in the Central and up country is the Tamil demand. Tamils are bad example. Muslims call Tamils the jews of Asia. Vigneswaran is a racist pig. Reconsilliation is only to Sinhala buddhists. The church is with the racist Tamils. This is a no win situation to Sinhala buddhists.

  5. charithsls Says:

    Can we get out of the pickle that is how we should look at it no point thinking of the past. We are stuck not because of the UNP itself but because it is supported by the SLFP.MS is the reason why the SLFP supports this government. If those SLFP ministers etc rebel, they know they will be put under investigations by the govt. So they are stuck and the govt has enough numbers.CBK should also have some numbers in the SLFP.So until the general election comes again, this wagon will go on unless the SLFP ministers etc vote with feet enmasse or remove MS from the chairmanship in a way possible.
    Ranil has no hold in the electorates outside Colombo but MS gives the Buddhist face. So the main strategy for the opposition should be not the UNP but how to get MS out of the chairmanship.

  6. Lorenzo Says:

    In the name of the KALAMA SUTRA we should question allegations and NOT accept ANYTHING at face value. So please allow me.

    Stanley,

    You forgot about the TAMIL ONLY GOLD DANSALA. One was held at temple trees, others in Vavuniya, Jaffna and Batti. My3 camp instigated SINGHALA people in VAVUNIYA SOUTH, etc. to go for the rally where GOLD was distributed to Tamils ONLY. These Singhalese came to know they were NOT entitled to it (as they are not Tamils) the hard way!

    SCRAP the 3 evils.

    1. SCRAP 13 amendment
    2. SCRAP Tamil O&N language
    3. SCRAP LLRC (worst of the 3 because it BINDS all the bad things together!!)

  7. Lorenzo Says:

    This joker named DILAN PERERA is lying through his whatever.

    He claims Maru Sira offered to make GR the PM but MR rejected it!! What complete BS. According to 19 amendment, a US citizen CANNOT enter SL parliament. GR is a US citizen.

  8. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    LORENZO !! NORMALLY THEY LIE THROUGH THEIR TEETH, BUT IN THIS CASE IT IS THROUGH THE EXIT END OF THE OESOPHAGUS.

  9. Cerberus Says:

    Mr. Charles Perera,
    Thank you. You have said quote “Even if Rajapaksas had swindled money, stolen gold , took bribes and laundered black money, the Rajapaksas had within five years after elimination of the ruthless terrorists developed Sri Lanka as no previous governments had done since Independence. They developed the country not only in the North and East but also in the South. They raised the standard of living of the people. They brought peace into the country and assured security. That period of President Mahinda Rajapakse was the golden period of Sri Lankan history after Independence.” unquote

    I totally agree with you. I like to see how Ponil, CBK (hidden force) or My3 would have stood up to the mental torture that President Mahinda Rajapaksa is being subjected on a daily basis by the Yahapalanaya. We should be treating him as a National Hero instead of treating him like a common criminal. His strength of character is being shown even more now that he is being mentally tortured daily. He is equanimous even when he is being made to suffer by My3 to satisfy the Tamil diaspora and the Western, Indian overlords who are his masters. If MR had not been pressured on bogus War crimes charges by UNHCR he would have got more things done for Sri Lanka. He is a genuine leader who loves the country and the people. When people flock around him he always kisses the babies and shows his affection to the people. Have you ever seen a picture of either Ponil or My3 kissing babies? Ponil would not know how to hold a baby!

    Lorenzo,

    I think the gold that was re-distributed was the gold that the LTTE had seized from the Northern Tamils. I have seen photos on this event, and short write up under photo. That was the right thing to do. The gold was their property in the first place.

    ———–

    Cerberus has brought up an interesting point that both MY3 & Ranil never touch kids or show any affection to them – a telling trait here ….. warmth of the Heart is lacking ?

  11. Cerberus Says:

    Here is another reminder as to how all these people who are now trying to destroy President Mahinda Rajapaksa greeted him when he came to Sri Lanka including My3.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNvoPujery0

    Here is a video of the celebrations that took place in Sri Lanka when LTTE supremo double was killed by the forces.

  12. Lorenzo Says:

    Fran,

    “I think the gold that was re-distributed was the gold that the LTTE had seized from the Northern Tamils.”

    Nonsense! LTTE did NOT seize ANY gold from Tamils!!

    ALL gold, etc. it stole was from MUSLIMS and SINGHALESE. Evicted Jaffna, Vanni, Batti Muslim and Singhala people, border villages and army and police people killed, wounded and captured.

    Gold of Muslims and Singhalese was distributed among Tamils to beg for their votes. STILL Tamils did NOT vote!

  13. LANKAPUTHRA Says:

    I do not know why no one is talking about how Mangala Samarweera; is bank rolling his loot since becoming a minister. Through the Cayman Islands bank system, Mrs. Thacher and Ronald Ragen created. Cerberus, good comments, but main issue is left out by you and Charles. It is Mangala Samaraweera and his manipulation of the media to suppress the exposure. Since Fran and Lorenzo is in SL you have better access Mangala Samaraweera and his Hench men. Put it out here so all can read it.

  14. Dham Says:

    “Sri Lanka that was a resplendent Island under Mahinda Rajapakse is today a mis managed , ruined derelict, shabby and ugly floating like boat without direction as to which way to float.”

    First half of the sentence was absolutely false.

    If the country was that magnificent Mahinda cannot be beaten. It is a fact. Look at Singapore as an example. Please don’t do this white washing and ruin our country forever. You keep on doing white washing you are the enemy of the country, not Tamils not Muslims, not Ranil not CBK but Sinhala migrants who ran away from the country for personal benefits.

    We need to accept that our country was mess during MR and even worse now. MR had the greatest opportunity to make it a resplendent but didn’t do it due to his own character and faults even though a lot of people including you were trying to correct him. We should forgive him since he was the only president who finished the war, but he too must fully accept responsibility for his wrong doings for the country to accept him and work towards the goal. It is not nice to keep on blaming him but do not make us to remind you by unnecessary white washing which will not bring ANY benefit at all.

    Sri Lanka is ruled by Saint Paulpot today. Things can’t go wrong with a saint of course!

  16. Fran Diaz Says:

    Sri Lanka was highly respected under Mahinda Rajapakse.
    Sri Lanka was not wagged by foreign nations under Mahinda Rajapakse.
    Sri Lanka GREW UNDER THE MR GOVT. both Economically and as a Nation.

    Sri Lanka is not allowed to continue growth when SINHALA BUDDHISTS GROW AND DO WELL !

    Cerberus has put out some interesting websites above – thank you Cerberus !

    SCRAP the 3 evils.- SCRAP the Tamil .

    Why this kolaveri machang ???

  18. nilwala Says:

    Sri Lanka was indeed a shining example of what could be accomplished when the leaders of the country are in sync with the citizenry and there is a sense of understanding of the civilizational history and culture and a sense of pride by those at the helm…and that was when President Mahinda Rajapakse together with Gotabhaya and the Ranavirus led this country OUT OF WAR and INTO PEACE. The country gleamed as never before as they all went to work on getting the Economy going, addressing the damaged and neglected infrastructure repair and reconstruction as well as the Humanitarian Exercise of Rehabilitating the 300,000 people who had fled into the arms of the military from the Human Shield that they had been forced to provide for Prabhakaran and his cadres, demining their towns that had been littered with LTTE mines. WHAT AN EXERCISE IT WAS!….AND ONLY A FEW YEARS AFTER THE HORRORS OF A TSUNAMI THAT HAD LEFT A SHORELINE WITH ITS HABITATIONS COMPLETELY DESTROYED AND SOME 45THOUSAND PEOPLE DEAD BY THIS NATURAL DISASTER.
    THE DEFENSE FORCES AND CIVILIANS OF ALL COMMUNITIES DISPLAYED A DISCIPLINE AND DEDICATION SELDOM SEEN ELSEWHERE IN THE WORLD, EVEN IN THE MOST DEVELOPED COUNTRIES, AND THE COUNTRY EXPERIENCED A NEW SENSE OF REVIVAL REVIVAL – ONLY TO BE FACED WITH THE FRESH CHALLENGES OF ANOTHER LTTE WAR. IT BROUGHT WITH IT A NEW TERRORIST CHALLENGE – THE “HUMAN SHIELD” THAT BROUGHT A VAST HUMANITARIAN CHALLENGE. BUT THAT TOO WAS TACKLED SUCCESSFULLY. BUT THE TRIUMPH WAS SHORT- LIVED. THE UPLIFTMENT AND ENCOURAGEMENT THAT SHOULD HAVE COME FROM THE WORLD COMMUNITY WAS NOT TO BE. INSTEAD SRI LANKA WAS MADE TO LOOK A “FAILED STATE”; A “PARIAH STATE”, HUMILIATED AS NO DEMOCRACY HAS BEEN.
    DESPITE ALL THAT, THE RAJAPAKSE GOVERNMENT WENT ON WITH DEDICATION PURSUING A PROGRAM TO DEVELOP AND RECONSTRUCT WHAT HAD BEEN NEGLECTED DUE TO 30YRS OF WAR.
    SRI LANKA ROSE AGAIN, GLEAMING AS NEVER BEFORE….AND IT WAS MAHINDA RAJAPAKSE WHO GAVE THE LEADERSHIP TOGETHER WITH ALL THE DEFENSE SECTORS COOPERATING TO REACH A NEW HIGH FOR SOUTH ASIAN DEVELOPMENT. Mistakes were made, but what Government has NOT? MORE GOOD THAN BAD WAS DONE.

    Today, we watch the decline…the fading cleanliness and the rise of poverty. Who can bring back that sense of achievement and pride again when all that is being concentrated upon by those in power is HUMILIATION and UNRELENTING VENGEANCE??

  19. Fran Diaz Says:

    Someone who is anti-MR govt had said that the MR govt was ‘oppressive’.

    We say that the present Yahap govt is REPRESSIVE and is a Fascist/Sadistic and even anti-National with Ranil as the ‘supreme Dictator’ !

    Poor Yoshitha has been further remanded with suspension from the Navy. How would MS like Dhaham to be treated likewise ?

  20. Fran Diaz Says:

    We agree with Nilwala.

    Trusted and proven leadership imperative for Lanka. It is best if All leaders ought to get together to build up Lanka. If not, the trusted time proven people must prevail and lead.

    As it is the Economy and all the plums that go with it that is sorely missed by the UNP business people, then the UNP business folk must join a new govt led by trusted PATRIOTIC folk.

  21. Fran Diaz Says:

    Lorenzo,

    Most of the gold grabbed by the LTTE was from the Tamils of the North. Some of it came from Muslim jewellery shops. This can be seen in the internet news on the past events. I do not think the Sinhala folk who were in the North hoarded gold. Hoarding gold is a Tamil habit, coming from Tamil Nadu.

    MR was correct in giving the LTTE grabbed gold to the Tamil folk of the North. I guess that these items were returned to the owners of the gold who lost it. They must have complained of their losses to the govt authorities, some time or the other. As far as I know, there were no Sinhala people complaining of losing gold to the LTTE in the North.
