The first priorities should be to safeguard the language and to protect our nation, Gevindu Kumaratunga says. The observation was made at an event held to celebrate the 129th birthday anniversary of one of Sri Lanka’s greatest scholars, Munidasa Kumaratunga last evening. This country needs more writers like Munidasa Kumaratunga who can address the conscience of each individual,” he added. – See more at: http://www.adaderana.lk/news/36236/protect-our-language-protect-our-nation-asks-gevindu#sthash.dVel6Ui3.dpuf

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
