Sinhala Buddhists should rise as one against writing a new Constitution
Posted on January 22nd, 2017

By Charles.S.Perera

The  so called Yahapalanaya government which had been deceiving the people of this country ever since Maithripala Sirisena was elected President of Sri Lanka on the 8th January,2015, has no right what so ever to precipitate to write a Constitution for Sri Lanka.

Today the people of Sri Lanka are divided as they had never been before. The Tamil terrorists have been eliminated but they have reappeared in another form-Wigneswaran, TNA and the Tamil Diaspora-the three evils ”, to be an important supportive group of the Sirisena Ranil Yahapalanaya Government. This Sirisena Ranil government will do any thing , make any sacrifice to retain the support of the three evils”.

Hence to allow the Sirisena Ranil government under these circumstances to write a new Constitution is to make Sri Lanka  a sacrificial lamb” of this Yahapalanaya Government on the altar of reconciliation to satisfy the Tamils, the ultra Tamil Wigneswaran  and the Tamil diaspora-the three evils”

Therefore under no circumstance should the Sinhala Buddhists of Sri Lanka allow this  pseudo Yahapalanaya Government of Sirisena –Ranil to write a new Constitution for Sri Lanka. Kiriella a UNP Minister of this government says that they would give 13 plus and abolish the executive presidency.

These UNP yes men to Ranil Wickramasinghe- their leader, even two years after they have taken over the government of Sri Lanka find it extremely difficult to leave out President Mahinda Rajapakse to cover up their sins, and make people believe that they are same as him. Kiriella says that the new Constitution may grant 13plus as proposed by Mahinda Rajapakse. They have only the name of President Mahinda Rajapakse to save their skins, but they –all of them put together can never equal the man that is Mahinda Rajapakse.

They swear that the new Constitution has not been written as yet but only the proposals by the five Committees have been presented. But the proposals do not give any assurance that they will finally be able to write an acceptable Constitution. This government does every thing in stealth hiding facts not only from the people but also from the President Maithripala Sirisena blissfully ignorant of what is going on behind his back.

There is no reason why this Sirisena Ranil Yahapalana government should at all write a new Constitution when the 1978 Constitution is an acceptable document which had served its purpose during the most critical period of the recent history of Sri Lanka. Any required Constitutional changes could  easily be made by Constitutional amendments.

There may had been a reason why the President Mahinda Rajapakse did not remove the 13Amendment, but now it has to be removed from the Constitution and retain the executive powers of the President intact, as we have still not distanced from the past period of  terrorism and  political turmoil which still continue to haunt us.

The Present Yahapalanaya government does not take any thing seriously. As they have mismanaged the economy of Sri Lanka they without accepting their disastrous bungling since their taking over the Government of Sri Lanka on the 8th January,2015, act like a bull in a glass shop” taking haphazard decisions  to  patch up” their wrong doings.  As the Sirisena –Ranil government is now in very critical financial straights, they have begun selling Sri Lanka’s most valued treasures” such as the unique natural harbour at Trincomalee, 15 thousand acres of prime land  in the South , Mattala Airport , Lankan Air Lines,  and part of the Colombo harbour etc.

The UNP Ministers and now some of the SLFP serniors like Mahinda Samarasinghe, Sarath Amunugama  are bragging that they have done what President Mahinda Rajapakse failed to do, which was to bring Sri Lanka into the fold of the West. But what have they received from their new found friends of the West. Their Western friends  have still not taken up even a single major development project. But they are nevertheless profiting from Sri Lanka’s dive into disaster. It was the same that the West did with the misfortunes of Greece. It is Germany and France that gained from the misfortunes of Greece.

Ranil Wickramasinghe hoped that America would have come to his aid with his Mount Pelerin connection , and even began by insulting China to give the West the signal that he was on their side against China. But the America and the West treated him  just like they treated his uncle J.R.Jayawardana-nicknamed Yankee Dikee, who expected  America and the West –to be his his safety net against Indian thuggery.

USA and the West will pay glowing tributes to Yahapalanaya for regaining democratic Sri Lanka, and reconciliation with the minorities and taking the Armed Forces before a hybrid court to be tried for war crimes which they believe Sri Lanka Armed Forces  committed in eliminating terrorists. That is all that the Yahapalanaya government will get from the Western friends. The GSP plus seems also a yarn fabricated to fool Ranil and Sirisena. It is yet another Folks Wagon car assembly plant or a tyre factory.

But Ranil Wickramasinghe dependence on America is fathomless. American Embassy had said that they would help the Government to write the Constitution( things may change with the new USA President Donald Trump). The Yahapalanaya is said to have engaged an American Company DAI, which some say has CIA connections as well it describes itself as follows:

Forty years on the frontlines of global development confirm the interconnectedness of development challenges. Conflict mitigation touches on issues of effective civil society, legitimate governance, equitable use of natural resources, and poverty reduction. Poverty reduction in turn intersects with economic reform, global competitiveness, private sector engagement, and the prevalence of debilitating diseases. And so on. Our development specialists reach across technical disciplines to shape the integrated development solutions that promise transformational development results………”

It is said the Prime Minister wants DIA to organise the Parliamentary Commissions and other Administrative aspects of the government. Is the Prime Minster Ranil Wickramasinghe internationalising Sri Lanka ? He has also requested Eric Solheim the notorious Norwegian to come to Sri Lanka to help him with the reconciliation. The Prime Minister’s office, meanwhile, said that Wickremesinghe sought Solheim’s assistance on environmental issues.”

The Yahapalanaya Government has no sense of values. They want to make Sri Lanka a Singapore. They want to sacrifice the Buddhism and Sinhala culture for an imagined reconciliation with the Tamils and the Muslims. They do no understand that there could never be a real reconciliation with the Tamils unless they give up  their call for  a separate territory for the Tamils and agree to live with all Communities.

Perhaps  it is well for both Tamils and Muslims in Sri Lanka to reflect on words, when you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice” pronounced by US President Donald Trump in his inauguration speech on the 20th January,2017.

It is not the Sinhala that should move towards Tamils  but it is the Tamils who should  come to the Sinhala to assure their sincerity to reconcile with the Communities. As it is the Yahapalanaya exercise  of reconciliation is turning of tables.

The Constitution of Sri Lanka should retain the elements of the first Constitution prepared by the British when they granted Independence to Sri Lanka. Any Country’s Constitution is written by the Majority Community safeguarding its religious and cultural identity .  The minorities of the Country are not consulted in the writing of  a Constitution. But the Majority Community allows the minorities the right to religious worship and maintain their cultural identities. 

It is for the minorities to accept the constitution written by the Majority.

It should be the same with Sri Lanka. There is no reason to give special concessions to Tamils because the Tamil terrorists were allowed to carry on their terrorism for thirty long years.

The Constitution should also protect the territoriality of Sri Lanka, therefore the Muslims should not be allowed to clear forests and open unauthorised Muslim settlements where ever they want. And the Tamils should not be allowed to  attack  Buddhist Temples  or destroy Buddhist Statues anywhere in the Island, nor allow them to chase away the Sinhala from occupying their lands and property any where in the Island.

Wigneswaran, Mano Ganeshan, Sampanthan , Rishad Bathiudin or Faizer Mustapha have  not to be consulted in writing the Constitution of Sri Lanka. It is for the Sinhala Buddhists to write the Constitution, if it has to be written at all. But the 1978 Constitution should be continued to be used, but provision with regard to 13 Amendment should be removed.

The Constitution should be amended to Accept Sinhala as the National Language, to make the National Anthem sung in Sinhala only, rename Sri Lanka as Sinhale, and re establish the Ancient Sinhala Lion  flag brought down  by the British when they colonised Sri Lanka in 1815.

    “Open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice”! – Trump

    INDEED, it is NOT the Sinhala people who should make “amends” but it is up to the Tamil people who resorted to unremitting terrorism and reaped just retribution, to make “amends” and adjust to peaceful co-existence!

    In which part of the world are VICTIMS punished further and aggressive RACIST MURDERERS allowed to escape scot free?

    Not the Nazi’s in WWII, not the Japanese who raped China, not Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge, not Al-Quaida’s 9/11 plotters, and not the murderers of the ISIS in the near future!

    We hope that President Donald Trump, who has already said that US Foreign Policy is deeply flawed, will stop the US govt from fostering and molly coddling of murderous terrorists posing as victims, stop destabilizing other countries in a quest to shove American values down other people’s unwilling throats by force, and let the “shine” of America’s accomplishments at home voluntarily gain it ALLIES in the fullness of time.

    Most importantly, the United States should recognize and support the vibrant, tolerant, and progressive democracy that has taken root in Sri Lanka since independence under stewardship of its Sinhala Buddhist majority.

    Please don’t preach democracy and good governance to us in support of separatist minorities as previous US Govt’s did; just work on improving and bringing sanity to your own democracy as you have pledged.

    The US should recognize and foster Sri Lanka without trying to undermine it and hoist minorities and foreign cultures and mores upon it.

    We of the Sinhala Buddhist majority in Sri Lanka have our own vision of democracy, and every community of Sri Lanka can safely thrive and prosper beneath the canopy of that spreading tree where there is an undivided equal place for each and every citizen irespective of community.

    Yes Ananda it is exactly how it is, ” We of the Sinhala Buddhist majority in Sri Lanka have our own vision of democracy, and every community of Sri Lanka can safely thrive and prosper beneath the canopy of that spreading tree where there is an undivided equal place for each and every citizen irespective of community.”

    Well said Ananda.

  3. Christie Says:

    Dear Sinhalese: The problem is the Indian imperialism and colonialism in the island nation. What about the Sinhala Christians and Muslims. They have the same history as Sinhala Buddhists.

    Indian colonial parasites are the problem in other Indian colonies, the former British-Indian Empire now the Indian Empire.

    This is the same problem in other countries like Mauritius, Guyana, Fiji, Africa etc etc.

    If you have not been to the Indian colonies this day and age you can get information from the Internet about these countries.

    EXCELLENT CHARLES!

    AND Buddhism to remain as it is.

    As a start lets put this to MR and get his support first.

  5. Hiranthe Says:

    I do agree with Christie… Indian Colonial Parasites are the dangerous ones…

    On Trincomalee Port, some sundry Indian official has denied Gonseka’s statement..

    I don’t trust any of these statements from India. It has not been declared officially by some authority. This is all RAW at play. The Forbes writer and the Indian Newspaper editor could have been bribed by RAW easily. I have a strong feeling that this is again a mind game and they are playing with our public sentiment in order to get the ECTA and the Hanuman Bridge materialised un-noticed..

    To start with, Gonseka and Run-nil are both in RAW’s pay role and they have stirred up the issue according to RAW’s wish. With this paper article.. which is again probably published by RAW will neutralise our public anger and our people will also forget about ECTA and the Bridge and be busy with the day to day mundane work and Tele dramas in the evening.

    Our enemies will easily reach their targets… RAW has studied about our behaviour and treating us exactly to suit our weaknesses.

    To me, our only protection is from the Deities who looks after us and Mother Lanka. For them to look after us, we have to be qualified for that by purifying ourselves spiritually. In the olden days Sinhelayas were strictly observing “Pansil” and it is said that the one who do so are deserve to get worshiped by the Deva’s or Deities.. We do not require to ask for protection because they protect us 24 x 7 as a duty.

    This is the only drive which will bring up the olden glory to this land and its occupants. “strictly follow Five precepts”

    To be very honest I feel that now we are a dishonest and ungrateful nation.

  6. Christie Says:

    Thanks Hiranthe for agreeing with me. I don’t think most of us cannot understand the plight we are in. India and Indian colonial parasites had us had us by the balls from 1956 except for few years, examples Dudley and Mahinda.

    So Trincomalee is not an issue for the Indian Empire. It can use it as it wishes if there is a conflict. I am sure Indian Intelligence Service the Third Eye, Defense Research Organization of India and Indian Defense Forces have already done the required modelling in using Trinco.

    Ananda USA. Trump has won but there are a lot of Indians who can influence Trump. I hope Trump close the loopholes used by Indian vermin to get to USA. The Indians are worried including Modi. If Trump closes these loop holes India will loose about fifty billion dollars a year sent by Indian vermin in the USA to India.

  7. LankanDon Says:

    Don’t you all think Christie is a RAW agent who has nothing to do except to comment here? Look at this comment by him: ” Dear Sinhalese: The problem is the Indian imperialism and colonialism in the island nation. What about the Sinhala Christians and Muslims. They have the same history as Sinhala Buddhists.”

    No Christie, Christians and Muslims don’t have the same history as the Buddhists!!!

  8. Charles Says:

    In the case of Catholics their allegiance is first to the Church in Rome. The Christians also stand by their Church, God and Jesus. Muslims now are more interested in increasing their population to convert the world population to Allah their Supreme God.
    The Sinhala Buddhists have only this little Island home which was offered to the Buddha three centuries before current era, by the Sinhala King Devenapethis. Therefore we can rely only on the the Sinhala Buddhists to lay their lives to save Sri Lanka their motherland.

  9. Lorenzo Says:

    What Christie says is WE SHOULD UNITE AGAINST THE COMMON ENEMY – ENDIA.

    Christians and Muslims are KILLED, etc. in ENDIA. Our enemy’s enemy is our friend.

    Christians and Muslims DO NOT have the same history as Buddhists BUT they speak Singhala and WORK WITH SINGHALA POLITICAL PARTIES.

    Not like TNA.

    We should get as many people to OPPOSE this ENDIAN imposed con-stitution. EVERY vote counts. What do Christians GAIN from the new constitution? Nothing! What do Muslims GAIN from the new constitution? Nothing! So we should get them in.

  10. S.Gonsal Says:

    Happy to see all can see the common enemy India.
    Christians and Muslims don’t have the same history as the Buddhists but the main thing is ENEMY INDIA.
    This has to be tacklled first but at the same time should not allow MUSLIM THREAT to be opportunistically take advantage.
    I also want to remind all thet ENDIAN imposed con-stitution did not occur in January 8 2015 but in 1987.
    By right, all those LEADERS good or BAD did not REMOVE IT, thus fall inot to category of INDIAN COLONIAL PARSITES, no matter what else they did.
    WITHOUT A PROPER SINHALE CONSTITUTION we have no country.
    Can we agree on that ?

  11. Lorenzo Says:

    “WITHOUT A PROPER SINHALE CONSTITUTION we have no country.”

    YES!

    Our constitution is HALF ENDIAN! So SL is half Endian.

    IF we are SL, our constitution must be SL.

    Gonsal,

    Do you honestly think Endian relatives will remove the Endian parts of the SL constitution? Get real!!

  12. Lorenzo Says:

    Even some Tamils SUPPORT SL.

    Don’t think 100% of Tamil support federal BS.

    IF SL becomes FEDERAL, HIGH CASTE Tamils will KILL low caste Tamils. So we can WIN LOW CASTE TAMILS on to our side.

    We NEED those votes too.

    Then we can tell BATTICALOA Tamils that they will get the KARUNA TREATMENT from northern Tamils IF country becomes federal. This way we can get their support too!!

    We NEED ALL VOTES we can get.

    Please think about it.

  13. Ananda-USA Says:

    LOOK AT THIS PAIR:

    The EELAMIST AGITATOR Katussa (Lorenzo-swamy) who did a Kavadi-dance up and died the LankaWeb aisles DEMONIZING MR and the UPFA govt, and his SLAVISH disciple Gon Kakawedda (Gonsal-swamy) who HATES MR and has been demonizing MR ever since he came to LankaWeb about 1 year ago in support of his lord abd master the Katussa (Lorenzo-seamy), are defining, creating and offering solutions to the “Tamil ethnic problem” all by themselves!

    LUDICROUS!

    Don’t you two gave anything better to do thsn engaging in zero-sum activities??

    Oi Kslawedda, how about helping Katussa (Lorenzo) to finish his PhD in Kovil Management? HE is stuck in a rut without ideas for his thesis!

    Agree with Charles.
    Thank you, Charles.

    ———–

    Sri Lanka is NOT the “tethered goat/sacrificial lamb” in SE Asia !!

    NO NEW CONSTITUTION is necessary.

    Things to do :

    – Just Remove the ILLEGAL 13-A.
    – Enact the 6-A.
    – Get Tamil Leaders to OFFICIALLY REVOKE the Vadukoddai Resolution (1976)
    – ALL OF LANKA’S PORTS (SEA & AIR) MUST ONLY BE FOR PEACEFUL PURPOSES. ADD THIS AS AN AMENDMENT TO THE EXISTING CONSITUTION.
