Sinhalese Thank Wigneswaran’s Racism
Posted on October 2nd, 2016

Shenali D Waduge

We must owe a lot of gratitude to the Northern Provincial Chief Minister for his racism which has helped wake up quite a lot of Sinhalese from their slumber. We must confess that the Chief Minister has achieved what many of us have been trying to do. With the recently concluded Jaffna protests coupled with the attacks on the Sathosa retail outlet and Jaffna university students openly commemorating a dead LTTE cadre (Thileepan), the Sinhalese are taking out their history books and questioning the legitimacy of what Wigneswaran and other Tamil racists are now demanding.

Let’s just logically assess the situation. For any ethnic group to be demanding that they were the historical inhabitants of an area they must forward historical proof and not propaganda. The island was invaded 17 times by South Indians and inspite of the destructions there still remains Buddhist sites in the North which further reveals that there would have been plenty of Buddhist sites in the North before they were destroyed by both Indian and the 3 colonial invaders. Finally, Sinhalese are also thinking on these lines.

If Tamils were the original inhabitants how can there be Tamils in South India as well? The same ethnic group cannot evolve from 2 different countries? Lets not forget that Tamil Nadu has been claiming the self-determination rights before the Tamils in Sri Lanka. There cannot be 2 homelands for the same ethnic people. More and more Sinhalese are now asking this question too.

The other important factor is that there is sufficient evidence historically to prove that Sinhalese were living and having a civilization in the North from 1st century AD. Thankfully the Sinhalese are waking up.

The Tamils cannot plug a period that Tamil Nadu invaders ruled after the Sinhale kings and then say this was their homeland. By all logic the Sinhalese must say the North was the homeland of the Sinhalese as well and historical proof is ample to showcase this.

Wigneswaran claims Tamil Homeland – Where?

The Sinhalese are now asking. All agree it is nowhere but in South India where Tamils originally came from, where Tamil language and culture originate from and where Tamil customs and traditions. Every aspect of Tamil culture and traditions finds their root to Tamil Nadu therefore there is nothing to claim anything as having evolved in North Sri Lanka. Apart from spending a lot of money on plugging ‘Tamil Homeland’ to every demand there is absolutely no historical proof of such to claim that Tamils evolved from this so-called area.

Wigneswaran claims no Buddhist history in North Sri Lanka

Thankfully the Sinhalese are not only asking each other this question but also taking out the books, some are even googling articles – what a relief!  Jaffna peninsula and Nagadipa is mentioned when Buddha first visited Sri Lanka. Yapane derives from Sinhalese Yapapatuna. Nagas who were related to the ruling royal family in Kelaniya were the ancient inhabitants of Jaffna. A Kiripalu tree was said to have been consecrated by Buddha while in 2nd century AD King Bhatikatissa built a relic house at the foot of this tree. King Aggbodhi II during the 6th century AD patronized this same vihara.

King Devanampiyatissa’s envoys set off to India from Jambukola port the same port that Sanghamitta theraniya came with the sacred Bodhi tree. Here too a temple was built and a sapling planted by King Devanampiyatissa. King Kanithatissa in the 2nd century AD repaired the Tissamahavihara builty by King Devanampiyatissa and was improved by Voharikatissa in 3rd century AD. In the 11th century King Vijayabahu I repaired the Jambukola vihara. The Vasabhas gold plate found in Vallipuram near Point Pedro mentions a vihara built by Piyaguka tissa where some 12,000 monks are said to have resided. Another vihara (Mangala vihara) was restored by King Dhatusena in the 5th century AD. There are many other viharas that have been built by Sinhala kings in the North.

A Chola inscript in the 8th year of Rajadhiraja II rule mentions preparations for a port in Uratota today known as Kayts another evidence that Sinhalese Kings were ruling the North. Port Valigama (Vallikaman) is mentioned in Sigiri Graffiti which again proves that Valigama was populated by Sinhalese in 8th century.

All these proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that from 1st century to 11th century the Sinhalese royal authority prevailed and Sinhalese people were living in the Northern peninsula.

Wigneswaran can please disprove above with historical evidence only!

So when and from where did Tamils come?

Tamils never evolved in Sri Lanka. They came as migrants and after invasions first with the Chola invasions during the 13th century till the Aryacakravarti rule.

The take away from this is that these were invasions and the Tamils that remained were not originally from North Sri Lanka. To claim Tamil homeland the Tamils must have been born and formed a civilization. There has to be remnants of that civilization. We cannot find any such.

However, the Sinhalese have enough of Buddhist remains to showcase.

Kantaroda – near Valigama (Valikaman) where 22 dagabas are found. There is a huge limestone Buddha statue recovered from excavations in the Jaffna Archaeological Musuem (hopefully it is still there)

Neelavehera (Nilavarai) situated in Valigama where the upper part of a Buddha statue modelled in the Abhaya-mudra has been discovered. Another dagaba close to the statue dates back to 10th century.

Hunugama (Chunnakam) is where another dagoba was found near the rail track. There are many other dagobas found throughout the Jaffna peninsula.

Gothamaluwatta (Gottamalivattai) is where several Buddhist sites have been found along the route taken by Sangamitta theri. Gotha is taken as an abbreviated term for Gotami/Gautami which means honoured.

What is also important to note is that all these place names now Tamilized were originally in Sinhala. Please refer work of Prof. Chandra Dharmawardha.

Kamalika Pieris in several articles covering Buddhism in Ancient Jaffna highlights that Buddha’s first visit to Sri Lanka was to Nagadipa which is part of the ‘solosmastana’ (16 places of worship of Buddhists).

Paul E Pieris claims that Nagadipa was the name given to Jaffna peninsula and its islands – even addressing the Royal Asiatic Society reconfirming that Jaffna was part of the ancient Sinhala Buddhist civilization. The Vallipuram gold plate found around 1936 confirmed Nakadiva (Nagadipa) was the ancient name given to Jaffna. Jaffna was an island separated from the mainland by a narror strip of water and became linked to the mainland only in the 18th century.

Therefore, theatrics aside Jaffna must be renamed Nagadipa and the Nainativu temple must be relocated to Jaffna.

There are hundreds and hundreds of artefacts and historical proof to show the Sinhalese were living in the North – what can Wigneswaran show to claim Tamils were living in the North BEFORE the Sinhalese and that Tamils evolved in the North? This should be the question that needs to be answered. However you cannot have the same people evolving in two places. In other words you cannot have Tamils evolving in Tamil Nadu at the same time Tamils evolving in Sri Lanka. Let us not forget that the self-determination struggle started in Tamil Nadu and that was the key reason why the struggle was palmed off to Sri Lanka by India through militancy.

We must also not fall prey to Sinhalese originating from Prince Vijaya. This is another myth fed into our system. The 4 tribes were known as Sivu-hela and this in time came to be Sinhale and they were living in the island far before Vijaya and his men landed.

A further search and queries will bring to light that King Senarath despatched Mudaliar Attapattu to Jaffna in 1619 following the Portuguese conquest. Why would King Senarath the Kandyan King despatch his finest officer to Jaffna? Good question – the simple answer is that Jaffna was a kinglet of the Kandyan Kingdom as was the East. According to Father Queyroz the King had despatched 10,000 men to defend Jaffna. The last battle for the defense of Jaffna before it fell to European powers was fought not by a Tamil army but by Sinhalese men sent by the King of Kandy. As Queroyz says as long as Rajapure (Anuradhapura) was the capital of Ceylon, the whole island was subject to one kng” If it was so with Anuradhapura, it was so with the rest of the capitals. When the Portuguese arrived in 1505 there were 15 ‘kinglets’ subject to the King of Kotte of which Jaffnapatao kinglet was one and none of them were independent or separate from the rest.

Leaving all this aside – the simple logic is that if the Tamils evolved in the island then they should not be called Tamils. Sinhalese are not found anywhere else in the world except in Sri Lanka. Vijaya didn’t speak Sinhala nor is there any people called Sinhalese in any of the independent kingdoms that became known as India when British amalgamated these kingdoms. Sinhalese people, Sinhalese language all evolved in Sri Lanka.

Now let us take the demands placed during Wigneswarans racist protests.

  1. Stop Sinhala Buddhisization of Tamil Homeland – Reading the above, you will realize what an absurd and preposterous demand this is. It is no surprise that there are steps underway funded by foreign sources to have integrit-less academics re-write bizarre history in keeping with this. Please must be aware of ground realities and refuse to play a part. First it was Stop Sinhala Colonization now its Stop Sinhala Buddhisization –what will be the next slogan?
  1. Federal Solution recognizing the Tamil nation, its sovereignty and its right to self-determination – A federal solution is just a form of system to facilitate governance how can it recognize a Tamil nation? If its sovereign is it part of a nation? How can there be self-determination… please don’t fall for these lies.
  1. International investigation for genocide –It’s now 7 years Wigneswaran nor any of those claiming x number of people died have yet to produce the names. We have given a list of over 200 Tamils killed by LTTE – isn’t that genocide too?
  1. Remove occupying forces – A national army of a country does not occupy. They are the legitimate unit to defend the nation and protect its people. If anyone is occupying the North it is Wigneswaran who was parachuted from Colombo and made the Chief Minister of the North. Ideally a man living in the North should have been allowed to contest the post not a man who had been living all his life in the South with the Sinhalese.
  1. Ensure the safety, security and dignity of Tamil women – where was Wigneswaran when Tamil women and children were taken by force and turned into child soldiers and LTTE cadres? Who are raping these children and women – is it not the Tamil fathers and relations? Who are supplying liquor and narcotics that have turned the Jaffna youth into druggies and boozers? Isnt these narcotics coming from India and LTTE runs international narcotics while the taverns are all run by Tamils?
  1. Stop harassing former combatants? What kind of demand is this? The Sri Lankan Army rehabilitated them, the child soldiers were given a Presidential amnesty, they were given tutors and they passed their exams, they were married in ceremonies organized by the army, some of them are filmstars, singers and actors – who enabled all of these? It was not Wigneswaran or the TNA but the Sri Lankan Army and the former government. Nowhere in the world are combatants treated like ours – in other countries LTTE would have been charged for their crimes as should have been all others linked to LTTE. Its not too late though.
  1. Restore our lands – we return to the same question. What lands, prove so first.
  1. Stop plundering our marine resources – was this demand drafted by the Indians because if anyone is plundering Sri Lanka’s marine resources it is not Sri Lankans but the Indians.
  1. Prevent unlawful and forcible encroachment and fishing by Southern fishermen on our coasts and seas! Remove existing illegal encroachments – What kind of demand is this? Southern Sri Lankan fishermen cant fish in the North but the Indian fishermen can steal our fish from the North. Very funny!
  1. Prevent forcible & arbitrary entry of Southern fishermen into our seas – these demands are getting really hilarious – Wiggy says Indians can steal fish but the rest of the country’s fishermen cant fish in their country’s legally provisioned seas!
  1. Release political prisoners unconditionally – For an ex-judge Wigneswaran really needs to take out his books and realize that LTTE who took up arms against a state and killed unarmed civilians are not qualified to be categorized as political prisoners.
  1. Ensure justice for the forcibly disappeared – Names please, and then we can check how many of these disappeared are living in foreign shores.
  1. Stop seizing our traditional lands – this is a repeat of demand 7
  1. Stop destroying our culture – what culture is that? The Tamils in the North are fixated to everything South Indian – why not tell them to stop destroying your culture
  1. Stop subjecting us to total economic depression – wonder what type of economic development existed under 30 year rule of Prabakaran in the North. Can we please have some statistics of the booming economy in the North when LTTE ruled… some districts didn’t even have electricity and were restored by the former government, some areas didn’t even have schools and not even a road was built?

It is seriously advised that the racism of Wigneswaran stop. All that the Sinhalese say is that Tamils have no right to demand a homeland and seek to separate our small island nation.

We are a small island nation and the country is for all of us to live in. No one has any right to be dividing and cutting up the country to pieces plucking out terminologies used to carve out other nations.

If the Tamils are coming out with lies to secure bogus demands we will challenge this by demanding proof because we are well aware that a Sinhale civilization existed and there are ample proof of this existence.

The bottomline is that while the Sinhalese are prepared to share the country we will not agree to any sharing that compartmentalizes people on ethnic or religious lines. Therefore the Sinhalese are advised to be alert to the attempts being made to change the constitution using these bogus demands to justify the existence of a bogus homeland theory.

If so the Sinhalese must place their demands for Sinhale homeland that existed until it was handed over to foreign powers by local traitors as is happening now.

It is good for some patriotic academics and researchers to come out with more facts to demolish this myth being floated just like the lies floated to justify military interventions in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and now Syria. Yes, the same culprits are involved and are working with local traitors in Sri Lanka.

    Thank you Shenali for the valuable article. You have once again proved that you are the lone worrier defending mother Lanka. This must be an eye opener to many people.

    To my knowledge, until today no one has answered the list displayed by these separatists. Not from the government, not from the JO, Not from any other national organisation. Please do excuse me if anyone has done it and if I have not seen it.

    Some one should send this article to UN chief, Navipille’s golaya Hussain, John Kerry, Biswal, Modi, Jayalalitha, Solheim and many other major players who have been taken for a ride by the LieTTE. The fact that they are acting on a different agenda is a different story but we should tell them the truth so they will not come and talk to us as a occupying race in the North and the East. The occupying race is the Tamils themselves. Let truth prevail. Thank you Shenali for the valuable article. You have once again proved that you are the lone worrier defending mother Lanka.

    You ‘re quite right we should thank this chap for awakening the Sinhalese from the slumber again & hopefully will lead to some significant result from that. I did comment at one time, with apology to all those affected by his damned terrorist acts,that we should thank none other than the murderer Prabakaran for many goods that were brought to Sinhalese as a result of his terrorist campaign, none more so than establishing a powerful army which was prior to his attacks was just a ceremonial one. Earlier a flotilla of fish boats from TN could have overcome us but not so now, to the credit of whom?
    If you sit back & think so many benefits came our way.Therefore I’m sure this man’s outburst will bring us benefits which might not have happened otherwise. Buddhism will further prosper in the North or anywhere, Nalanda attacks or Bahamian destructions not withstanding.

  5. S.Gonsal Says:

    One more fact proven by this.
    This RACIST was a supreme court judge (before gifted current postion with his influencail Massina)
    Can one imagine how his judiciary interpretations had been in the past.
    It is outright dangerous for Tamils to be allowed to enter legal profession.
    This proves we need to look at ALL TAMIL JUDGES and check them for brain function.
    ALL TAMILS should be subjected to mental tests before admitting to Law College and Uni Law degree courses.

  6. Dilrook Says:

    The first demand says it all.

    [Quote] Stop Sinhala Buddhisization of Tamil Homeland. [Unquote]

    Also read “Vandalising Buddist Shrine at K’kulam: CJ steps down from Bench” published here.

    The main target of Hindustan and LTTE (it’s arm) is Buddhism. It is Buddhism that separates India and Sri Lanka. In India Buddhists have been reduced to just 0.7% of the population. That too mostly unemployed and marginalised Dalits.

    Tamil separatists and their Indian sponsors are determined to wipe out Buddhism from Sri Lanka as they did in India and in all Hindu majority districts of Sri Lanka. Nuwara Eliya is an exception but with Indian housing projects only for Hindus, that too will follow Jaffna, Mulaitivu, Kilinochchi, Vavuniya, Mannar and Batticaloa (near zero Buddhists).

    Only 11,186 Buddhists (or less than 0.02%) are in Tamil Nadu – the lowest in India. Are all these flukes?

    Even in history the main target of Pandya, Chola, Magha, Chakravarti, etc. invasions was Buddhism.

    The British era act of 1931 saved Buddhist shrines. Now the government is trying to remove that too under Indian pressure.

  7. S.Gonsal Says:

    Yes, More than Sinhala, Hinsdus fear Buddhism. They think China means Buddhism.

  8. Dilrook Says:

    That is correct. Indians (falsely) think Buddhism equals China.

    There are other reasons why Hindus hate Buddhism more than Christianity and Islam. Buddhism goes to the heart of Hinduism which is based on caste and a whole economic system built upon caste, dogma, worship without doctrine, the concept that man can attain enlightenment and the four noble truths that are not consistent with Hindu teachings.

    Hindu society considers everyone not Hindu as low caste – Christians, Buddhists and Muslims.

    Now India focuses on the other Buddhist country in the region Bhutan. I fear devastation of this peaceful, green and happy country.

  9. aloy Says:

    In fact China will be the biggest Buddhist nation on earth. I was watching a documentary by BBC’s Simon Reeve yesterday. According to him there are already 250 million of them already and their young people are attracted to Buddhism these days.
    He showed the Buddha statues in their temples and people paring there. These are very much like those in SL. It would be interesting to find out how the religion propagated to some of the South East Asian and East Asian countries. Was SL the ‘mahagedera’ (as explained by Waruna in these columns?. I see some distinct Sinhala words (not Sanskrit) being used by some Malays.

  10. aloy Says:

    Sorry, please read as “…… in their temples and people praying there.”

    What I was trying to say is that SL appear to have had some connections with these countries before the advent of europeans to the scene in the 16th century. Perhaps they systematically destroyed the historical evidence of these links as well.

  11. Sooriarachi Says:

    It is obvious Wigneswaran (the man who could not even step in to Yapapatuna or Jaffna when Prabakaran was living) is today trying every trick in the book, to mislead the world, some of whom are willing to be mislead, such as some Norweigian and American evangelists and politicians. Wignewswaran, if he cannot live like an equal in Sri Lanka and if he cannot resist the urge to arouse communal disharmony through racism the scourge of mankind, then he could always happily settle down in the caste conscious Tamilnadu. To think that Wigneswaran was once a supreme court judge, sends jitters down my spine.

    As stated in your article above:
    “We must also not fall prey to Sinhalese originating from Prince Vijaya. This is another myth fed into our system. The 4 tribes were known as Sivu-hela and this in time came to be Sinhale and they were living in the island far before Vijaya and his men landed”.

    I agree that available evidence proves the Sinhalese lived on this island for many thousands of years and their language, native medications, martial arts, astrology etc had developed independent of the British created India.
    Buddhism arrived from the North of today’s India and I believe it was then known to the Sinhalese as Jambudeepa? Prince Vijaya’s arrival could be significant, but that was not the beginning of the Sinhala civilisation. Vijaya’s people merely assimilated into the Sinhala nation and may have enriched further the Sinhala civilisation, as did the subsequent migrants from many nations, including Indian, European, Asian, Middle Eastern etc

    THE TRAP WE MUST NOT FALL INTO IS TO THINK THAT THE SINHALA NATION BEGAN AFTER VIJAYA.

  12. plumblossom Says:

    There is no Tamil Homeland! It is a completely bogus invention. The writer has got the history slightly wrong. Even the most recent Pandyan invasion just prior to the arrival of the Portuguese in the 16th century by Aryachakravarthi only invaded the Jaffna peninsula only and the settlement of the Jaffna peninsula was very sparse. All earlier invasions by the Cholas etc. they invaded Anuradhapura and Pollonnaruwa and these was for short periods of time and there were no settlements whatsoever at all as a result. Most Tamils were brought over by the Portugese and the Dutch to work on Tobacco and Indigo plantations set up by the Portugese and the Dutch after the 16th century.

    There were from around 600BC over 43 attempted invasions of the island by the Chola, Kalinga, Pandya, Vijayanagar and other South and Indian Kingdoms etc. However only six succeeded. There was one invasion by a Malayan kingdom too. These were during Sinhala Kings Walagamba, Dhutugemunu, Dhathusena, Vijayabahu I, Parakramabahu II, Buvanekabahu V and Parakramabahu VI times. However invaders invaded Anuradhapura, Pollonnaruwa and stayed only for a short period of time and left the island once they were overwhelmed. There were no settlements due to these invasions except the very last invasion by Aryachakravarthi of the Jaffna Peninsula.

    When looking at Sri Lanka’s history, it is extremely obvious that from 600BC to around 1400AD there were three kingdoms, all Sinhala Buddhist, Ruhuna, Pihiti or Rajarata and Maya or Malayarata. Rajarata encompassed today’s North Central, North Western, Northern and even the Central Province. Ruhunu rata encompassed today’s Uva, Eastern and Southern Provinces. The Kandyan Kingdom from 1400AD encompassed most of the island inclusive of today’s Northern and the Eastern Provinces except for the Jaffna Peninsula. Even the Jaffna Peninsula was invaded and occupied by force by Aryachakravarthi (Pandyan) and actually did belong to Rajarata earlier and later the Kandyan Kingdom.

    Today’s provincial boundaries were drawn up by the British colonialists as per their divide and rule policy and the Sinhala people were not consulted when drawing up these provincial boundaries. In the meantime, most Sri Lankan Tamils of today were actually brought over during Dutch and British times to the Jaffna Peninsula and elsewhere to work on tobacco and indigo plantations which were planted extensively in all the colonies since they were much sought after and made a lot of money for the colonialists. Therefore they are recent arrivals and cannot claim homelands or separate states whatsoever.

    The usual practice when a colonial power hands over their former colonies is to hand it over to its original owners. Therefore the British colonialists should hand over the Kandyan Kingdom to the Kandyan Sinhalese from whom they took it by force. Since the Kandyan Kingdom encompassed the North and the East, these provinces too should be handed over to the Kandyan Sinhalese who are its rightful owners. Even the Jaffna Peninsula should be handed over to the Kandyan Sinhalese since it was part of Rajarata and was forcefully occupied by Aryachakravarthi (Pandyan).

    Since this has now been done already, the TNA, other separatists or the US, UK EU, Canada, Norway, Sweden and India cannot demand that present day Northern or even the Eastern provinces be provided any more powers or be made into federal states since this is totally going against the history and archaeology of the island and totally going against the rights of the Sinhala people who also have fundamental rights to claim the entire island inclusive of the North and the East as their homeland first and foremost.

    History which was dropped as a subject should be taught at school since Sri Lanka has a very long history and it is very beneficial for the next generation to learn the history and archaeology of the island based on actual archaeological findings, archaeological ruins, artefacts, stone inscriptions, ola leaf writings and so on. Otherwise people will believe any bogus history invented by interested parties to their benefit, not based on facts but invented for their own nefarious purposes. Today these settlers such as the Sri Lankan Tamils are inventing history for their own purposes without any archaeological evidence whatsoever to back up such bogus claims. Therefore it is imperative that history is taught as a subject in school as soon as possible.

  13. plumblossom Says:

    Apart from highly commending you for taking legal action against the treacherous CBK (Chaura Rejina) regarding the defamatory and utter lies she keeps repeating to defame her rivals, legal action should be taken against her for stating that she will definitely devolve more powers to provincial Councils within the new constitution. Does this evil woman CBK think she owns Sri Lanka and that she is the one who is going to draw up the new constitution of Sri Lanka (according to the wishes of the imperialistic US, UK, EU, Canada, Norway, Sweden, India, the racist TNA and the separatist terrorists)? The constitution of Sri Lanka should satisfy first and foremost the majority of people of this island i.e. the Sinhala people and the Sinhala people firstly do not want to draw up a new constitution nor do they want any more powers whatsoever be provided to the provincial councils especially land, police and fiscal or to illegally merge the North and the East.

    Someone has to go to the supreme court and take action against treacherous CBK for suggesting that she will definitely devolve more powers to provincial councils within the yet to be drawn up constitution since this means the treacherous Ranil, Sirisena, CBK and Mangala have already drawn up a constitution to satisfy the imperialistic US, UK, EU, Canada, Norway, Sweden, India, the racist TNA and the separatist terrorists which is illegal.

    As expected, the All Ceylon Hindu Congress has defended Wigneswaran.

    All of these are simply anti-Sinhala and anti-Buddhist racists trying to cover up extremists and racism with lies.

    Quoted from the Island newspaper.

    All Ceylon Hindu Congress (ACHC) has thrown its weight behind Northern Province Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran now under attack for launching ‘Rise Thamils’ campaign in Jaffna on Sept 24.

    In a special statement issued over the weekend, ACHC demands an immediate end to ongoing criticism of Wigneswaran’s actions.

    The following is the full text of the statement titled

    ‘No communal hatred propaganda’ issued by ACHC: “Citing the speech made by. Justice C.V.

    Traitor cancer can’t rest until they get their drealam. That’s the problem they have. They all lose sleep over this.
    They are crafty, never loyal, never grateful, never have a good word for Sri Lanka or the Sinhalese, never Sri Lankan. They all know they are
    foreigngers in this land. But they never want to admit it since they all have this ego problem thinking they are
    superior than the Sinhalese. On top of this their never content, never enough mentaility ingrained in them it
    is very difficult to mix with any other race. Pig neshwaran is no different. After studying in Colombo, getting into
    top of his profession, he is still not happy and vengeful. Ungrateful traitor is a classic example of never happy, never
    enough, never grateful, never grateful racist cancer. He achieved the top position in his profession in so
    called nasty Sri Lanka.

    First lot of tamils were brought by the dutch to work in tobacco planations in the north. Second lot by the british
    to work in tea estates. Third lot came here to save their lives from the severe famine in tn during the 60s who
    settled down along the coastal belts. Their geographical positions also proves this; north, central province and
    the coastal belt. Surprise, surprise they are all now natives with 1000s of years history and ancient kingdoms.
    Of course, they will have bogus claims like this knowing Sinhalese divided by thanks to UNPatritoic party. The
    traitor UNPatirotics also side with them for the traitor tamils votes. So keep chanting these ridiculous claims
    to reach their ultimate goal. Their drealam while keeping Colombo also in their hands.

    They don’t have a single ancient brick to corroborate their ancient kingdom theory. They have proof in books and
    www. only. We all know there are fiction and true stories. But the clever traitors keep chanting the mantra
    national question, national question and get more and more and inch towards their ultimate goal, the drelam.
    We didn’t ask the traitor lot to come to Sri Lanka, we didn’t bring them here from tn. If they don’t want to
    live in Sri Lanka as Sri Lankans, they should do the honourable thing and leave. Nobody going to stop you,
    nobody going to cry, nobody going to miss you. We will only say good riddance you traitor lot. Do the decent thing!

    nobody is ever going to know what happened. That’s how crafty, ungrateful, treacherous this lot are.

    One link for the so called natives to click and enjoy. If you are hiding any ancient bricks from like in Polonnaruwa, Anuradhapura etc.
    this is the best time put them out to show you had ancient kingdoms. Until such time we all know, including the
    traitor tamils, they were all mythical kingdoms. By the way books are no substitute to corroborate any claim as
    we all know there is no law against writing fiction! You have to have archaelogical facts like ancient buildings etc.

    I wonder whether GOSL funding LTTE propaganda?. I was watching BBC world service news (around 7.30 AM SL time) this morning. The presenter (Mike Embly) was praising a software product from Sri Lanka supposed to have been funded under a World Bank loan. It is to be used to create good appearance of women who have suffered acid attacks on their faces etc. and is being shown in an exhibition somewhere in the US.

    However I was surprised to see that it is all about people (even divine figures) riding on tigers wearing tiger clothes.

    Is this approved by Yahapalanaya to be taken to a world stage?.

    The writer has asked for further historical facts and figures. Apart from many Buddhist ruins, the writer has missed a very important part of the Sinhala Buddhist civilization which is the extensive hydraulic system that still prevails in the dry zone of Sri Lanka. The Sinhala kings built over 15,000 large, medium and small scale irrigation reservoirs in Rajarata and Ruhuna encompassing today’s, North Central, North, Eastern, North Western provinces. For example Yodha Wewa Reservoir in today’s Mannar in the North was built by the Sinhala King Dhathusena or Mahasen. The Pavatkulam Reservoir in Vavuniya in the North was built by the Sinhala King Dhathusena or Mahasen. The Kanthale Reservoir in the East was built by Sinhala King Agbo II. All of the irrigation reservoirs present in the North Central, North, North Western and East were built by Sinhala Kings. In fact, to get the water to flow out of the reservoirs in a smooth manner, the Sinhala Engineers invented the biso kotuwa a type of water outlet out falling from the reservoir where water pressure can be managed so as not to damage the tank bund. Another invention of the Sinhala irrigation Engineer is the anicut where a river’s water was diverted using a dam type structure built across the river partially blocking the river flow and diverting the water into open channel canals.

    The amazing and extensive irrigation system in Sri Lanka’s dry zone encompassing today’s North Central, North, East and North Western Provinces encompassing over 15,000 large, medium and small scale reservoirs, open channel canals etc. was built by the Sinhala Kings. Therefore there is no doubt whatsoever that there was a Sinhala Buddhist civilization encompassing today’s North Central, North, East and North Western Provinces, even just by considering this extensive irrigation reservoir system. R.L. Brohier, H.C.P. Bell, D.LO. Mendis, many archaeologists, irrigation engineers, surveyors have written many books and research papers on this subject.
