30 years of LTTE Terror Killings: Do Sinhalese lives matter to UNHRC
Posted on July 26th, 2016

Shenali D Waduge

Why is no one counting the Sinhalese dead? There are no books, no documentaries, no panel discussions, no media coverage, no UNHRC head wants to even come and meet the families of these victims, no global tears or candles, no vigils, no commemorations. Are Sinhalese not human beings too? Do their deaths not matter? When LTTE stormed their villages, slit them to pieces while they were asleep, babies dashed to the ground – were these not sensational enough to be relayed across the world? Did the Sinhalese not cry enough, did they not scream enough? Why has no one in 30 years come forward to empathize with the Sinhalese? In a country with 74% Sinhalese wasn’t it the Sinhalese who were targeted the most? Can the UN & the UNHRC please tell us why the Sinhalese lives don’t matter?

Starting from killing villagers in the Kent & Dollar Farms in 1984 we really do not know how many villages the LTTE stormed and killed. These Sinhalese lived in fear, children going to school were shot dead, men were slain as they went to work on their farms – what had they done to anger the LTTE. They were ordinary people trying to make ends meet. Not a penny has been given to them. There are no global funds for them. No one gives them refugee or asylum. With dried up tears they are continuing their lives.

Children killed by LTTE.

It was not enough that LTTE kidnapped low caste impoverished Tamil children many of whom did not even have parents and turned them into child soldiers, but the LTTE guns also turned on innocent children. What was the message they wanted to convey in nullifying the life of an innocent child? What crimes has these children committed to the LTTE?

This is Matara Kithalagama Sri Seelalankara Thera (also known as Dimbulagala Hamuduruwo) He was the  Chief incumbent of the Dimbulagala Raja Maha Vihara. On May 26, 1995 on his way to visit a farm belonging to the temple he was killed by the LTTE. His crime was providing moral support to the poor people living in border villages to fight LTTE intrusions into their villages.

Student Buddhist priests shot dead by LTTE

33 Buddhist monks were traveling in a bus on 2 June 1987 (Aranthalawa) They were going on a pilgrimage. LTTE stopped the bus and mercilessly attacked them. 3 Buddhist monks escaped death. One is disabled for life. To harm a Theravada Buddhist monk is said to be one of the greatest crimes anyone can commit. Once again the world viewed this as no major crime. Nothing to warrant the UNSG to even appoint a panel to appraise him of the lists of murders LTTE had been committing.

LTTE Commits Cultural GenocideIt is a war crime to destroy cultural monuments. LTTE has been systematically destroying all evidence of Sinhala Buddhist heritage sites in the North and East.

Sri Maha Bodhi Temple – 14 May 1985

LTTE entered the sacred city of Anuradhapura.

This was the 1st major attack by LTTE outside a Tamil majority area. 120 worshipping pilgrims including Buddhist monks were killed and over 85 were injured,

Dalada Maligawa (Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic of Buddha)

The world reaction to Bastille Day and the no reaction to the Dalada Maligawa is noticeable and disappointing. But then, we are not living in Europe, and we are not French – we are just Sinhalese

25 January 1998 – LTTE exploded a massive truck bomb inside the Temple of the Tooth premises which was to be the centre the independence day celebrations. Three suicide LTTE Black Tigers drove an explosive laden truck containing 300–400 kg of high explosives people. 16 people including the 3 attackers and a 2-year old infant were killed in the incident. Over 25 people, including 4 women, a monk and a police officer were injured. P. W. Withanage, a professor of geology also died due to shock after hearing the incident. The powerful attack left most of the buildings within a radius of 5 km damaged, and glass panes broken.

Sri Lankan government officially banned LTTE for the first time on 26 January 1998.

Killing unarmed policemen who surrendered to LTTE – is this not a war crime?

In 1990 over 600 policemen surrendered, laying down their arms. What is the law when a person surrenders? Do you shoot them? Well the LTTE asked them to stand next to each other and what did the LTTE do? They shot them one after the other….one after the other…. one after the other until all of them were dead. They were all extra-judicially executed. Here was a mass murder but it never got any international recognition because the victims were mostly Sinhalese so these deaths don’t qualify to enter the UNHRC books.

How sad.

LTTE attack unarmed / injured Sri Lanka security forces personnel

  • 2005 – Navy personnel unarmed came under claymore attack by LTTE – during a ceasefire
  • 2006 – Habarana massacre – LTTE suicide truck attack a convoy of 15 military buses carrying close to 300 armed forces personnel going on leave unarmed – 103 sailors killed over 100 sailors injured.
  • There are still 5000 armed forces personnel still missing – there has been NO ATTEMPT on the part of the UN/UNHRC to even find what happened to them. Do they not have families, wives, parents and children?

Central Bank of Sri Lanka – January 31, 1996

A truck (42-6452) containing about 440 pounds of high explosives crashed through the main gate of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka. The blast killed at least 91 people and injured 1,400 others. At least 100 people lost their eyesight

shenali26071614A

There are over 300 attacks by LTTE over 30 years virtually every day, every month and every year…. In the US the blacks are asking ‘Do Black Lives Matter’ we Sinhalese are asking that same question from the UNHRC ‘Do Sinhalese matter’ to the UNHRC … have they ever matter at all?

LTTE killings of Sinhalese have never got global media attention. The UNSG head Kofi Annan even issued a condolence message to a dead LTTE cadre, not one such condolence message was sent to even a Buddhist priest killed by the LTTE. Foreign forensic experts can look at a photo and say that the Sri Lankan Army were the killers, while LTTE journalists end up on UNHRC head’s written submissions/reports. This is stupefying. Never an iota of attention has gone into how the Sinhalese the majority in Sri Lanka have suffered emotionally, economically and physically.

Post-conflict the calls were always on developing the North, not a thought went to the other victims which included mostly Sinhalese and Muslims too. People have forgotten it was the LTTE who fired the first shots. In a country with over 74% Sinhalese it was the Sinhalese who became victims.

Never a word has been allocated for the plight of the Sinhalese and Muslims in refugee centres and the need to resettle them and give them lands and homes. Nothing has been said about the Sinhalese & Muslims ethnically cleansed from their original habitats in the North where they have deeds to prove so. Not a penny of the funds allocated have gone towards their welfare. Not a hum or a candle was lit for the many impoverished villager who are still struggling to survive. None of their stories have ended up on any news report or documentary. It is a crying shame that such double standards prevail in an international body that speaks volumes about equality and fairness. How dare the UNHRC land in Sri Lanka and demand from the GOSL what they have done for the Tamils – has he forgotten that over 74% who live in this country are Sinhalese and they too suffered? Why don’t they deserve any light on their grievances for a change?

The principle of Nemo judex in causa sua must apply – no one can be the judge of their own case. There cannot be selective justice. The double standards must stop. Not only must Justice be done; it must also be seen to be done.

    SHENALI !! THE PADAVIYA VILLAGE MASSACRE WAS WITHOUT GUNS. IT WAS THE TAMIL TIGER WOMEN THAT CAME INTO THE VILLAGE AROUND 2.00AM, WITH MACHETTES AND SWORDS AND KILLED THE VILLAGERS, MEN, WOMEN, AND CHILDREN WITH NO MERCY. THEY DID NOT USE GUNS, AS THEY DID NOT WANT TO ALERT THE HOME GUARDS.

    I know the Padaviya village very well. I have visited it many times, when on our way to the Mineral Sands Corporation, Pullmodai, with my good friend, the Late C.C.T. Fernando, Chairman of Consultant Engineers, Turret Road. The Villagers were a very friendly, innocent lot. CCT showed me something in Padaviya, which I was asked not to reveal. Nothing to do with the massacre. I will let you know later by email.

  2. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    Just one more thing, KOKILAI is next to Pullmodai and it has the largest Lagoon, where in the evening, you could see over 500 Chulu Lights, Men catching Prawns. I believe Kokilai comes under Vavuniya Province.

  3. S.Gonsal Says:

    This where “reconciliation” should start, if at all necessary.

    TNA wives should Go to Padaviaya Village now ( unarmed , no machettes or swards ), visit every house by foot , weep over mistake of providing support to LTTE, shed tears and say “SORRY”.

  4. Cerberus Says:

    Shenali, Thank you for drawing attention to the hoax that is the UN. They speak with self-righteousness while the crimes committed by their masters are not looked at all. UN has truly become a joke.

    The UN never came forward for the Iraqi people, or the Libyans, or the Syrians, or the Cambodians, Laotians, and various other countries which were “Democratized” by the Western powers. When the JVP youth-led an insurrection to topple the SLFP Govt with Sirima, her Govt put it down brutally killing about 20,000 youth. Then again in 1988-90 period when the JVP rebelled again then the UNP Govt very efficiently wiped out about 60,000 youth most of whom were innocent village kids. The Butcher of Batalanda who is now the Prime Minister was supposed to have been responsible for torturing and killing at least 15,000 at Batalanda alone.

    There were no outcries from UN or UNHRC or Amnesty international etc., against the brutality of the Govts which were in power at those times. Suddenly out of nowhere, they decided that there were war crimes committed by the GoSL during only the last three years of the war ignoring the atrocities committed by the LTTE during the 30 years of war. These Western powers appear to use the UN as a means of creating public opinion to justify what they want to do which is to create regime change and install puppet Govts amenable to doing their bidding. Anyone who is interested in the facts about LTTE can go to this website and review the information there.

    Can we submit a complain to UNHCR now if it had not been done before? Is there a time limit? We should copy to all LTTE supporting western countries.

    This incident happen when UNP Premadasa was the President. We all know Police was ordered to surrender by some higher up. Nobody other than a President could order its Police Officers to surrender. Therefore its Premadasa and UNP Government is responsible for these 600 Police Officers life. Let see what Sajith Premadasa or present RW UNP with MS Govt: can tell about this incident. One of the retired Senior Policer Officer related full story in TV about this massacre but all governments since 1990 are silent.

  7. Dilrook Says:

    Tamils not only killed Sinhala civilians, they also used the terror of these killings to extort racist favours and even got away scot free. It is thrice a tragedy.

    This gross discrimination highlights the need for raising pro-Sri Lankan non-state rebel groups to retaliate these attacks. If they can be made self-financing, there is no accountability responsibility on the government. As the UN has let us down, alternative and lawful means to ensure our safety must be considered.

    However, Sri Lankan leaders since 2009 are mostly responsible for not investigating or at least complaining to the UN against Tamil terrorists, Tamil political parties that incited violence and Tamil civilians stopping the resettlement of Sinhalese and Muslims in the north. Without a formal and listed evidence, there is little the UN can do.

  8. Ananda-USA Says:

    Why do we need 16 Thiruvalluvar Statues to be Installed in Sri Lanka??

    This is MORE TAMILIZATION and INDIANIZATION of Sri Lanka to HELP ANNEX Sri Lanka to Tamil Nadu/India in the future!

    Thiruvalluvar is ALIEN to Sri Lanka, unknown in Sri Lanka, and has NO CONNECTION or RELEVANCE to Sri Lanka!

    There is NO OTHER PURPOSE to this INSTALLATION of an UNKNOWN Tamil Ethicist’s statues in Sri Lanka other than to CREATE TAMIL FACTS on the ground, not only in the North and East, but also in UPCOUNTRY!

    Together with the Ramayana Religious Circuit being set up EVEN AS I WRITE, this is all a DEVIOUS PROGRAM to PERMANENTLY TAMILIZE/INDIANIZE Sri Lanka with things that can NEVER BE REMOVED LATER, to make up for the fact that there are VERY FEW Tamil archeological artifacts in Sri Lanka to support EELAMIST claims to the LAND, and to ultimately CULTURALLY make Sri Lanka an APPENDAGE of India!

    Why is the YAMAPALANA GoSL ALLOWING this CREEPING INDIANIZATION of Sri Lanka to OCCUR? The MR/UPFA GoSL would not have allowed any of these DEVIOUS MACHIAVELLIAN STRATEGIES by INDIA and the EELAMISTS!

    INSTEAD, these TREACHEROUS Yamapalanaya leaders are AIDING & ABETTING this unadulterated CRAP to CONSUME our Sinhala Motherland, STEP BY STEP, INCH by INCH … CREATING NEW FACTS on the GROUND!

    ……………………..
    16 Thiruvalluvar statues to be installed in Sri Lanka soon: Minister

    July 25 (Hindu) Sixteen statues of Thiruvalluvar, the author of Tamil treatise on ethics Tirukkural, will be installed across Sri Lanka in the coming weeks, according to V. Radhakrishnan, State Minister of Education.

    Among the places where the statues would be kept would be Mannar, Kilinochchi, Mullativu and Chavakachcheri (Jaffna), all in the Northern Province; Puttalam in the North West; Colombo in the Western; Matale, Hatton and Nawalapitiya in the Central; Rakwana in Sabaragamuwa and Kaddaiparichchan (Trincomalee), Batticaloa and Thambiluvil (Ampara), all in the Eastern province.

    After Haridwar incident

    Asked whether there would be any problem in the country in the light of the recent controversy over the installation of a Thiruvalluvar statue in Haridwar of Uttarakhand, India, Mr Radhakrishnan told The Hindu at his office in Battramulla near here on Monday evening that it was precisely for this reason that he had taken all into confidence before making any move in this regard. While the payment of certain taxes such as import duty had been exempted for bringing in the statues from India, some other levies such as Value Added Tax had been paid.

    Earlier, Mr. Radhakrishnan took part in an event to receive formally the statues, which, the Minister said, had been donated by the VGP International Tamil Association.

    ‘For greater bilateral understanding’

    V. G. Santhosam, president of the Association, said the rationale behind the move was to foster greater understanding between India and Sri Lanka. He also expressed the desire to develop an amusement park in Colombo or Batticaloa.

    Mangala must be replaced by a patriotic foreign minister. Actually Ranil, Sirisena, CBK traitors must be replaced too. However Mangala must be replaced as soon as possible. A country’s government should first and foremost look after the country’s security. sovereignty, territorial integrity and in the case of a small country such as Sri Lanka its unitary status. Mangala has betrayed Sri Lanka by accepting the UNHRC resolution which no country with any integrity will accept. Mangala must realise that those LTTE terrorists who massacred the citizens of this country for over 26 years simply because they wanted a large chunk of this island for themselves, illegally, that they should be dealt with in a very careful manner without betraying the security. sovereignty, territorial integrity and in the case of a small country such as Sri Lanka its unitary status, even if extremely powerful forces such as the US,UK, EU, Canada, Sweden, Norway and India are behind the LTTE terrorists. In addition, we must place forth the argument that those who settled in the island quite recently only during the past few hundred years i.e. the Sri Lankan Tamils who are only but 11.2% of the population do not have any rights whatsoever to demand over 28% of the land area, 66% of the coastline and 66% of the vast ocean resources which belong to Sri Lanka. This message should be conveyed to the TNA, the separatist terrorists and those who support them i.e. the US,UK, EU, Canada, Sweden, Norway and India as soon as possible so that they understand our position. This is the task of a foreign minister. Mangala therefore has betrayed Sri Lanka and must go. Sri Lanka cannot afford large self ruling entities which are illegal anyway since this island as a whole belong to all its people in total. It is the foreign minister’s task to covey this message to everyone concerned.

  10. plumblossom Says:

    The missing persons commission, the name is a misnomer. it should be called ‘those combatants on all sides who died in the war i.e. Sri Lankan Forces, Police Force. Civil Defence Forces, IPKF, Tamil Armed Groups against the LTTE and the LTTE terrorists themselves and whose bodies have not be found’. Therefore the name itself is wrong and invented by the UNHRC to tarnish the image of the armed forces of Sri Lanka.

    The missing persons commission to date has receive 24,000 complaints from 1983-2009 period. Of this number over 5,000 are regarding missing Sri Lankan Forces members, whereabouts unknown, almost certainly executed by the LTTE terrorists. Over 12,000 complaints are against the LTTE itself recruiting young persons by coercion. Therefore over 70% of complaints are against the LTTE itself which amounts to over 17,000 complaints. The rest of the complaints are I am sure about the whereabouts of LTTE combatants or terrorists who died while fighting but whose bodies have not been found.

    My question is, why cannot the UNHRC the US,UK, EU, Canada, Norway, Sweden and India accept that Sri Lankan Forces, Police Force, Civil Defence Forces, IPKF, Tamil Armed Groups against the LTTE and the LTTE terrorists themselves died fighting in this war and leave it at that. What is the point in looking for these combatants now? Why is it that the UNHRC the US,UK, EU, Canada, Norway, Sweden and India never ever talk about the over 35,000 Sri Lankan Forces, Police Force, civil Defence Force members who died in the war? or the 1,200 IPKF members or the over 2,000 Tamils Armed Groups against the LTTE members who died in the war? or the over 6,000-7,000 Sinhala civilians and even Muslims civilians who were massacred by the LTTE? or the around (my estimate) over 3,000 Tamil civilians massacred by the LTTE?

    Why is it that the UNHRC the US,UK, EU, Canada, Norway, Sweden and India is not concerned about the over 10,000 Sri Lankan Forces members permanently disabled by the war, or the over 23,000 Sri Lankan Forces members both temporarily and permanently disabled by the war? or the over 136,000 Sri Lankan Forces members who were injured due to the war?

    Why is it that the UNHRC the US,UK, EU, Canada, Norway, Sweden and India not concerned about the over 65,000 Sinhala people and over 75,000 muslims ethnically cleansed from the North?

    Why is it that the only the around 35,000 LTTE terrorists who died inclusive of Prabhakaran are the concern of the UNHRC the US,UK, EU, Canada, Norway, Sweden and India? Perhaps this missing persons commission should answer that question first.

  11. plumblossom Says:

    Even if the constitution will be changed since this idiotic government follows whatever instructions the US, UK, EU, Norway, Canada, Sweden, India, the TNA and the separatist terrorists tell it to do, we must ensure that the unitary status of the country is not compromised in any way whatsoever. The clause in the 13th amendment which says that ‘the North and the East is the homeland of the Tamil speaking people’ must be deleted since it is totally false when looking at the history of the island. This clause must be replaced with the clause ‘the entire island is the homeland of all its peoples’. The provision which allows for the merger between two provinces should be deleted. As much subjects from the concurrent list should be included in the national list. Under no circumstances should land, police or fiscal powers be given to provincial councils. All of us need to ensure that the above happens since if the system reverts back to a parliamentary system and the presidential system is scrapped, the only way to ensure the unitary status of the country is the make sure that the provincial councils do not get any more powers than they have at present. The Public Security Ordinance should not be amended in anyway as well. If any provincial councils acts out of line, the head of government should dissolved such a provincial council and direct rule by the head of government should be enforced under those circumstances.

  12. plumblossom Says:

    I would please urge any person who has any influence whatsoever with Ranil, Mangala, Sirisena, CBK to let them know that these Western Countries i.e. the US,UK, EU, Canada, Sweden, Norway and India will only back off if Sri Lanka takes a very firm stance and refuses to carry out this unjust UNHRC resolution. Sri Lanka must do this without any fear since I am sure if Sri Lanka takes a very firm stance and refuses to carry out this unjust resolution the UNHRC, the US,UK, EU, Canada, Sweden, Norway and India will back off. I can guarantee that will happen. So it is up to Sri Lanka or rather Ranil, Mangala, Sirisena, CBK whether they are going to place our Sri Lankan armed forces in jeopardy for crimes they did not commit or whether they are going to defend the country’s armed forces and the country’s sovereignty, independence, freedom, integrity, unitary status etc. by refusing to carry out this unjust UNHRC resolution which no country on this planet earth with any integrity will carry out. However, if they keep complying with whatever unjust demands are made by the US,UK, EU, Canada, Sweden, Norway and India, they will have to keep complying with those unjust demands at the expense of Sri Lanka breaking up into pieces and placing the Sri Lankan people’s security in jeopardy. Sri Lanka will end up being partitioned too.

  13. Ancient Sinhalaya Says:

    Answer is NO NO NO. The reason for this is, christian controlled UNHCR doesn’t even want to know since the
    perpetrators were trying to establish a catholic country in Sri Lanka. They carried on killing Sinhalese men,
    women, children, forces personnel, even Buddhist monks with the full blessing of the catholic west, full
    blessing of catholic-run UNPatriotic party.

    One of the persons responsible for the sorry plight of the Sinhalese is die hard catholic, token Buddhist
    pol pot ponil wickramaSinhalakiller. He was brutal in killing Buddhist jvpers, but very reluctant to hurt his
    catholic buddy hitler pira(mala)paharan’s catholic tigers of tamil drealam aka ltte. He even gave half the
    country to his catholic buddy hitler pira(mala)paharan. Not content with that, he even grassed the
    millennium city integlligent officers to the catholic tigers of tamil drealam to expedite the creation of
    drealam. Traitor Sinhala modayas can’t have enough of him. So made him PM (pathala man?) to expedite
    the demise of Sinhalese race and Buddhism with the aid of traitor tamils, mussies and catholics.

    There is an online
    petition by Dr Iriyagolla on LW yesterday for pol pot ponil’s resignation. Surprise, surprise in typical Sinhalese pattern, nobody commented. Also not surprisingly, in typical Sinhalese pattern, very few people signed. I urge all
    patriotic Sinhalese to sign this petition in the name of all those people who sacrificed their lives, who lost
    their lives to the YAMA PALLANS of UNPatriotic party and catholic tigers of tamil drealam.

    All the staunchly
    catholic countries uk, ds (divided states), france, germany, brasil, argentina etc. etc all want MR’s blood.
    All the countries against are muslims. Even archbishop two three of south africa supporting a catholic
    drealam in Sri Lanka. I wonder why? Sinhala modayas can’t still make a connection. Under these circumstances
    there is no chance christian controlled UNHCR will shed a tear for those victims. Not even a crocodile tear.
    What chance with an outside organisation when a lot of traitor Sinhalese support this murderous UNPatriotic
    PARTY YAMA PALLAN who are responsible for those Sinhalese deaths by turning a blind eye to the catholic
    tigers of tamil drealam’s atrocities.

    Another great effort Shenali in reminding the fundamental fact about the plight of the Sinhelas but again may be easily ignored as a matter of habit.

    ” 30 years of LTTE Terror Killings: Do Sinhalese lives matter to UNHRC ”

    This is the ever forgotten suicidal impact materialised due to negative conditioning of the Sinhelas to shed its right of sovereign Nationhood now reduced to mere majority status same as a settler community. Those who continue to engineer this vicious phenomenon to its bitter end are running the country now not that others were much better as they too were trained in the same style. Any justifiable person with human integrity must realise if we give further perks to settler communities on top of already given immoral, illegal and Sinhela national sovereignty violations, the result will be our extinction and the island sacrificed to settler communities who already have their lands of national origins. It’s TIME TO ASK EACH ONE’S HEART if this is right or to regain our lost RIGHT of Sinhela National sovereignty?

  16. Fran Diaz Says:

    A permanent Gallery to show Terror in Sri Lanka should be opened in Colombo.

    It must be noted by every Patriot in and out of Lanka that the Tamil leaders then declared the Vadukoddai Resolution in 1976, way before the 1983 Riots. The V’koddai Resolution of 1976 – to achieve Tamil Eelam through use of Violence is what led to the formation of the LTTE. The 1983 Riots came AFTER the V’koddai Resolution of 1976 – this fact must be written into the History Books of Lanka. In any case, the JRJ govt was forced into the 1983 Riots. We were there as eye witnesses and we saw what happened.

    No apologies have come from Tamil leaders for misleading the Tamil people and for sad massacres of Sinhala & Others of Lanka by the LTTE for nearly 30 yrs.

    Tamil leaders have not ever suggested officially revoking the V’koddai Resoln of 1976 even today in 2016 ! What kind of leaders are they ?

  17. Ananda-USA Says:

    Fran,

    THANK YOU! Yes Indeed, a Tamil Terrorism Museum should be opened in Sri Lanka at the Independence Square, and coordinated with an Eelamist War Crimes historical tour around the country.

    It should be MANDATORY for every Foreign Ambassador to visit the Museum and pay his respects by lighting an eternal memorial flame there BEFORE proceeding to Temple Trees to present his credentials as a diplomatic representative to the President.

    The same should be required of other visiting government officials and UN officials.

    This ONE OF THE KEY WAYS of sensitizing visiting diplomats and foreign officials to the PRICE WE HAVE PAID to secure our freedom as a Sovereign Nation and it’s SIGNIFICANCE and IMPORTANCE to us.

    They MUST BE SENSITISED to our Sacrifices just as the Jewish People do in Israel to remind visitors of their sacrifices and why they are unwilling to pander to outside views to the detriment of their own people.

  18. Fran Diaz Says:

    Ananda,

    Fully agree with you that the world MUST be SENSITISED to the horrors of Terrorism in Lanka.
