Open letter to Sri Lankan parliament opposition leader R. Sampanthan
Posted on April 26th, 2016
Mr R. Sampanthan
Opposition leader in Sri Lanka.
We would like to take this opportunity to express Sri Lankan Sinhalese community’s view on ongoing activities in northern part of Sri Lanka. This is a new era and all of us should concern on our people’s future developments. We are given limited periods and it is not right to waste every bodies time doing nothing. Sri Lanka is one country and it’s confirmed geographically, historically and religiously. Majority Sinhalese, minority Tamils and Muslims have long historical recognition in here and after western invasions, appeared Burgers, Malays and Indian Tamil communities too. This country is belongs to all of us and everybody have right to live in this country indiscriminately. That’s what we got golden opportunity here. Majorities or Minorities have no right to do anything exceeding these rights This country belongs to all of us. It’s clear.
Ramayana tells us about the boundaries in between Ravana’s Lanka and India clearly, and it’s expressed how Hanuman and other monkey forces entered into Lanka and it’s valuable assets burnt down to ashes. That was the first known Indian invasion on Lanka. After that, India, used to do several number of invasions targeting Sri Lanka. The specialty is all the Indian invasions instantly stop our developments as well as year 2015 January 8th election. If we start to talk about back stabbing to Sri Lanka and the Sri Lankan nationalities; we can talk lots continuously till finish our life time.
We propose you to rethink on your political carrier with self criticism. You entered into parliament year 1977 and at that time you were in opposition leader’s party. Since 1977 up to now, you have been working for targeting Tamils’ liberation. It is more than 39 years period and now it’s time to turn back and try to understand what type of liberator you are?.
When you go back to year 1977 and look at the establishment of our society wisely. Deeply rooted Tamil intellectualism were spread all over the country and it helps lots to country development and government establishment too. Highly recognized Doctors, Lawyers, Judges Engineers Departments heads worked here, most of them were from Tamil community. It means most of the governing bodies were Tamils. They got high class family values. While they were enjoying with that type of social benefits. you entered into parliament. Remember on your 1977 political campaign mostly you used anti Sinhalese slogan to get Tamil votes. Your anti Sinhalese words and slogans got power to get Tamil votes and action of that power create a reaction against Tamil community. Year 1983 the reactions sparked and started riots against Tamils. The result of riots indicate the danger of racism. Your Tamil liberation struggle badly damaged to Whole country. Specially it’s given uncountable damage to Tamil community and it’s uprooted all the Tamil establishments from the society. Tamils were given horrible situation here. They lost everything instantly become up to refugees level inside their own motherland. That’s what your politics presented to Tamils. Since 1983-2005 most of Tamils got gypsy type life style in Northern Sri Lanka inside your liberated State. Premature Tamil state gave cyanide capsules, guns and suicide jackets to children and let down Tamil dignity to very low level in the history. They did not see the developments and they were in the dark until year 2009 May.
According to our view President Mahinda Rajapaksa and Sri Lankan Army started Tamil liberation struggle and it’s end in year 2009 May 18th. We propose you to organize to celebrate that day as “Tamils Liberation day” because cyanide capsules were remove from Tamil children’s neck. all the child soldiers were released and they got freedom to go back to their home. Tamil children are the future of Tamil community and you failed to understand the value of Tamil children. You did not stand for Tamil children. What type of liberation you expect to give Tamil community using infants for your so called Tamil liberation.
We are having a peaceful country now. Everybody enjoy with the freedom. Nowadays we are getting informations on your activities against Sri Lankan Army. You are the opposition leader. But you are not the president or prime minister.Please do opposition leaders job wisely. Because you have to do lots to raise Tamil community bring up to 1977 level. It was damaged by your so called Tamil liberation struggle. Your all the activities damage badly to Sinhalese and Tamils relationship and your actions make reactions against Tamils living in island wide. Please make the path to all Tamils have long life as same as you. God bless you!
