Sudath Gunasekara 2017.5.24.

I want all patriotic Sinhala readers to go through these statement by the big wigs of the Yahapalanaya Government carefully and thereafter find answers to the few simple queries I have posed to the four statements by the most important men in order of protocol on this subject, the President, Prime Minister, Leader of the House and the Cabinet Spokesman, Land and Parliamentary Reforms Minister Gayantha Karunathilaka

COLOMBO, May 23 (Xinhua) — Sri Lanka’s President Maithripala Sirisena on Tuesday ordered his Law and Order Minister to thoroughly probe incidents related to racism in the island country and take stern action against those involved.

Minister of National Co-Existence and Dialogue Mano Ganeshan told Xinhua that during a cabinet meeting held on Tuesday, he had informed the president that there had been incidents of racial attacks against the minority Tamils and Muslims in the recent weeks.

Ganeshan said that the president also instructed his cabinet that he would not tolerate any acts of racism and if any such attacks take place, then stern action would be taken against those responsible.

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe also said that if such attacks occur, then the area police officers will be held responsible. The government will not tolerate any acts of racism,” Ganeshan said.

He further said that the recent attack on a mosque in Kurunegala in northwestern Sri Lanka and the attack on shops owned by minority Tamils and Muslims on Tuesday morning were all part of a conspiracy to topple the government.

He added that the Police Chief would also be informed of the decision taken at the cabinet meeting.

Govt. to accelerate growth & protect peace – PM

2 Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe

 

Prime Minister Wickremesinghe said certain factions are behaving in a manner that disrupts the reconciliation process by inciting violence and racism.

The Prime Minister said the public should voice their objections against such factions.

Premier Wickremesinghe said those who cannot instigate separatism within the country are now attempting to create issues in the name of religion within the country, he then questioned as to how can religious based issues can be allowed to flourish within this country.

The Premier said individuals must vehemently condemn any movement that would bring about religious or racial hatred adding that this country cannot be divided.

The Premier added religion is something that unites people, not something that divides people.

Prime Minister Wickremesinghe said if anyone is looking to create racial and religious issues within the country, the need to be stopped as all citizens have the duty of protecting peace within the country.

The Premier said citizens must act against racial and religious hate within the country and work against its promotion.

3 Lakshman Kiriella speaking

The government says action will be taken against any individual engaged in extremist activities. Leader of the House Minister Lakshman Kiriella speaking in Parliament reiterated the government’s stance.

The Minister was responding to a statement by United People’s Freedom Alliance Parliamentarian Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena who claimed certain groups and organisations are attempting to destabilise the country by engaging in such misconduct.

Minister Lakshman Kiriella added the government will not tolerate actions such as that reported in Aluthgama and Beruwela in the past.

The Minister said the government clearly instructed that those engaged in extremist actions should be arrested following an investigation.

He added the government would not tie people to trees; nor kidnap people in white vans.

He questioned as to what took place during the Aluthgama and Beruwala incidents.

Minister Kiriella added such was why the good governance government laid out clear instructions to take action against such individuals regardless of their rank.

Strict action against inciting communal tension: Govt.

Strict action against inciting communal tension: Govt.

2017-05-23 21:16:3

The Cabinet today decided to take strict action according to the law against elements that attempt to create communal tension and disharmony in the country, the Government said today.

The Government accordingly will instruct all Police stations to be vigilant on those who attempt to create tension among communities and apply law strictly on them.

Cabinet Spokesman, Land and Parliamentary Reforms Minister Gayantha Karunathilaka told a hastilyconvened news briefing in the Parliament Complex last afternoon that the Cabinet that met after the mini Cabinet reshuffle on Monday was concerned about the statements made by certain groups and individuals that had contributed to heightened the communal feelings.

There are extremists in all parts of the country among all communities and they wait for opportunities to create ethnic unrest. They use the freedom given to them by this Government for their ulterior motives. But the Government is committed to ensure each and every citizen new freedom without hindrance from any party or group,” Minister Karunathilaka said.

The law enforcement authorities will act according to the law in a more vigorous manner to arrest this negative trend and maintain law and order and inter-communal harmony, Minister Karunathilaka stressed. (Sandun A Jayasekera)

The queries I make

What do these people mean by racism and racial and religious issues in the Sri Lankan context and in to whom they are referring to as individuals engaged in extremist activities. Most probably in this context,  they must be referring to the alleged attacks on a mosque in Kurunegala in northwestern Sri Lanka and the attack on some shops owned by minority Tamils and Muslims, by Minister of National Co-Existence and Dialogue Mano Ganeshan  which he describes as a part of a conspiracy to topple the government. Their reference to religious or racial hatred   also emanating from the same representations

The government’s policy decision to take serious action against any individual engaged in extremist activities is most welcome. But when you read through what Minister Lakshman Kiriella says that the government will not tolerate actions such as that reported in Aluthgama , it becomes more than clear that they are referring to only the alleged attacks by Sinhala Buddhists against muslims. His repeated reference e to communal tension and disharmony in the country, during the Aluthgama and Beruwala incidents make it very clear what the Government is having in their mind.

None of these people who are so quick and prompt in taking Cabinet decisions and give orders to arrest Buddhist monks even open their mouths about the large scale sacrilege and vandalism carried out by Tamils and Muslims against Buddhist monuments in the North and the East. Why don’t they talk about what Vigneswaran, Sambandan or  Sivajilingam say or do against the Sinhalese, both at Home and internationally and why don’t they take action on them. How is it that they take action only against the Sinhalese and Buddhists, and remand only Buddhist monks while they never touch Tamil Catholic priests. This government only talk about minority rights. But they never talk about the Majority rights. Don’t they consider the devastation of thousands of Buddhist religious places and cutting down Bo trees by Tamils and Muslims all over the country as provocative religious crimes?

I presume that these responses are a direct sequel to representations made by two minority groups, one made by the Minister of National Co-Existence and Dialogue Mano Ganeshan and the other by a group of Muslim Ministers respectively, to the President and the PM, last week. It is not surprising that the President and all others have been so quick in responding to their requests to take action against Sinhala Buddhist leaders and monks going by the lethargic attitude displayed by them regarding all repeated representations made by Sinhala Buddhist organizations for a long time on continuing anti- Sinhala and anti-Buddhist activities of both Tamil and Muslim politicians. Isn’t it a clear proof of the yahapalanaya Government’s attitude and its policy towards the Sinhala Buddhist majority in this country and its deep commitment on the other hand to the Minority interests. I want all readers to see how quick and  prompt the Yahapalanaya has been in taking even Cabinet decisions to address minority issues as against the lethargy displayed with regard to the majority Sinhala grievances. This also once again shows how the minority rules the majority in this country.

By now this Government has taken actions against at least fifty leading Buddhist monks and many of them had been remanded. Whereas the Government has not taken any action against traitors like Vinesvaran, Sivajilingam, Richard Badurdeen and Asad Salee to name a few only  for all anti Sinhala and anti=Buddhist utterances or activities done by them. Most of them have been engaged in anti-Government and unconstitutional activities as well. But both the President and the Prime Minister have turned their ears deaf and eyes blind in the name of reconciliation for the simple reason that they have voted them in to power along with the party blind Sinhala UNP voters.

Today party politics introduced by the British to ruin the Sinhala Buddhist nation has successfully destroyed the Sinhala ness of the Sinhalese. Unlike in the olden days today we don’t have Sinhala people either. So much so you don’t have Sinhalese; their nationality as well as religion is their party. But on the other hand for both Tamils and Muslims for all intent and purpose they are either Tamils or Muslims They vote, eat, act and even sleep accordingly. That is the difference between the Sinhalese and minorities and that is why they rule us today and we are like this as a nation. The biggest tragedy is none of our Sinhala politicians understand this. They only understand value of power and money and the vote that manifest the secret of both.

Now even this evening news broadcast over the TV, I saw Ven Galabodatte Gnansara has been asked to appear in courts on the 30th of this month. That is how this Government is treating the Buddhist monks the architects of our civilizations and the guardian gods of the nation who had protected this nation for the past 2500 years.  I really do not know as to what the monks in this country are doing while this Government is taking the Sinahla nation and the Sasana openly to nemesis like this.

Just one last question I pose to all patriotic people of this country. How long are you going to have these people as the leaders of the Sinhala Buddhist State and at what cost to the nation?

    As usual fine article by Sudath. We will not tolerate this horrible government for so long. Peace minded citizens of this country must seriously put in to their heads enough is enough. Entire Yamapalakayo set works as per their paymasters and coup plotters advise. They take us backwards instead of forward. If we allow them to go on like this we don’t have a land to call home. They do what Moda Modi wants, they do what Americans and the west wants nothing on our own. Instead of local advise they take from para suddas and from Indian parasites. What a shame? What we achieved as a nation from 2005-2014 were just forgotten and destroyed by this Yamapalanaya evil government in no time. These three dirty Harry’s Sira/runnil/ one eyed combination must be, should be kicked out soon to avoid more harm done to our Motherland. Time has come for Maha Sanga to act unitedly without division. Yamaballo will never understand the truth. To make their coup plotters happy they give hard time to Sinhala buddhist population by arresting, harassing and jailing buddhist monks and the SINHALA buddhist youths in the country. These evil rulers cannot see what the minority Tamils and Muslims in the North and East do to our Sinhala population. They destroy our buddhist cultural places,lands and openly challenge our military and the SINHALA government. We see in face book how former LTTE caders go in front of Army camps and challenge our Army personal and shooting our cops etc. We see Muslims destroy our buddhist sacred places, statues and most importantly our beautiful sanctuaries in the East with the backing of the Yamapalanaya government.

    Enough is enough time to take action against this evil government of Sira/wicky/ bandit. We need to get united and force the government to resign on so many unsolved burning issues we are facing today. They must punish Highway robber Arjun Mahendran for his million dollar robbery, punish Muslim ministers for destroying our forests and government owned lands without proper authorization, punish Tamil politicians who talk about dividing the nation etc. Police should be fair to all citizens equally. Must put a full stop to harassment of Maha Sanga in this country. They were the saviours of this blessed land for many many years and it should be that way for ever. Time has come to think hard and patriots to act.

    Wow I hope this is not standard commentary (if you can call it that) on LankaWeb. Obviously there is a myriad of endemic problems in Sri Lanka which need to be resolved and setting off one race against another on a tiny island is not the way to do it. As long as Sri Lankans keep referring to each other as Tamils, Muslims and Singhalese you continue to perpetuate the exact strategy Brits adopted to control this little colony. If any of you attended Royal college in the 1960s you would have witnessed how the Singhalese boys beat the crap out of Tamil kids during lunch breaks. Of course when you have segregated classes you are bound to get this kind of mindless stupidity happening. Yes I was at Royal at the time and yes I am Singhalese.

    Almost 60 years later nothing much seem to have changed.

    Who will benefit from this stupidity? China or another smarter country will simply walk in and take control. Wouldn’t take much from the looks of the Colombo Port or Hambantota Port. Looks fab in pictures…

    Stop living on money sent back by house maids and other unqualified worked in foreign lands and look out for your own destiny and future.

  5. Ananda-USA Says:

    When Gnanasara Thero and the BBS defends LEGITIMATE Sinhala Buddhis interests and National Archeological Treasures …. they are LABELLED as JAATHIWAADAYO and RACISTS!

    But when wahhabi Muslims and Eelamist Tamils seize Government Lands, desecrate Buddhist Monuments, THREATEN the government, BAN the President from visiting the North, and DENY Sinhala people EQUAL ACCESS to Land in the North and East, they are VICTIMS and FREEDOM FIGHTERS deserving PROTECTION!

    And our JAUNDICED National Government, the Yamapalanaya, HITS ONLY the Sinhala PATRIOTS!

    Is this a Muslim majority or a Tamil majority nation? Am I simply LABORING UNDER A FALSE ILLUSION that Sri Lanka is PRIMARILY a Sinhala Buddhist nation?

    It is HIGH TIME we OUSTED this PARA-GATHI DESHA-DROHI Yamapalanaya and RESTORED a PATRIOTIC government to OUR Motherland!

    Arrest Muslim racists before arresting Gnanasara Thero

    Sinhala Ravaya General Secretary Magalkande Sudaththa Thera said today stern action should be taken to arrest Muslim minsters who supported Muslim extremism before Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) General Secretary Gnanasara Thera was arrested.

    Sudaththa Thera told a news conference that Muslim political factions were trying to label Gnanasara Thera as another Prabhakaran who was igniting racism and causing harm to the Muslim community.

    “According to them Gnanasara Thera is the worst criminal in the country and the one who is destroying the archaeological sites in the country, the one who has destroyed forest reservations and the one who bring drugs into the country,” the Thera said.

    He said Gnanasara Thera raised his voice against the destruction of the Sinhala Buddhist archaeological sites and the clearing of forest reserves in the country.

    “He has done nothing bad to the country,” the Thera said.

    Sudaththa Thera said several attempts had been made by several extremists groups to assassinate Gnanasara Thera and contracts had been offered to these groups.

    “Today, a warrant had been issued to arrest Gnanasara Thera. However, there is no one in charge of issuing the warrant. No police department had been informed to arrest him, the minister who is in charge of the police department or the Justice and Buddha Sasana Minister does not know about the arrest. Therefore, it’s reasonable to believe that there is an attempt to abduct Gnanasara Thera and assassinate him,” Sudantta Thera said.

    He said the BBS was not responsible for the attacks on Muslim religious centers and that there should be credible inquiries regarding these attacks.

    “We also condemn these attacks. Investigations should be made to arrest Muslims who attacked their mosques,” he said.

    The Thera said, Northern Province Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran should be arrested first followed by Northern Provincial Councillor M.K. Sivajilingam.

    He said Mr. Sivajilingam has allegedly said that even President Maithripala Sirisena could be arrested if he comes to Jaffna and make statements which ignite racism.

    “Then State Minister of Child Affairs, Vijayakala Maheswaran should be arrested. Later, Trade and Investment Minister Rishard Bathiudeen, National Unity Front Leader Azath Sally should also be arrested for issuing statements igniting racism, Gnanasara Thera could be the last one to be arrested,” the Thera said. “Now the Muslim extremists claim that they are having a problem of having archaeological sites in their living areas such as in Eastern Province. However, the Archaeological Department Director had been removed to ease their work,” the Thera said. (Chaturanga Pradeep)
