Srilanka Nationhood is a contradiction in terms
Posted on October 29th, 2010

Anura Seneviratna (for expat Hela team).  

There should be no discussion or efforts to prove with historic evidence but a self-evident fact a child could understand is, that the incorrectly named Srilanka is the tiny Island Country of the Indigenous Hela/Sinhela Nation of people. While every indigenous national country of the world is named after its NATION’s authentic name, only the Hela/Sinhela Nation is deprived of our Inalienable Sovereign National right by naming it with a nickname uttered by foreigners. Primarily, the reason behind it is, to accommodate settler minorities. Yet, every other host national country the settler minorities become INCLUSIVE national citizens of that country after naturalization, whereas in Heladiva, they are given separate official entity status, leading to a novel form of colonization of the host country of Heladiva by its settler minorities. Almost as different nations within our tiny nation, a monumental contradiction in terms and a direct threat to our survival. This concept can be accepted to be justifiable ONLY if such minorities are not settlers but indigenous people of the same country, which can happen in certain countries, like in the Indian subcontinent. But it is clear as day light that Tamil national country is Tamil Nadu and there are around 50 Muslim national countries in the world. Another baseless notion is that there was a Tamil kingdom in the north of Island, hence it should be Tamil homeland. What proves here is that Tamils of Tamil Nadu had robbed some of our land and held up for a while. The then British robbed the whole island and it became a part of the British empire for a long time. Based on the Tamil claim, British can claim the whole island as theirs today. When Britain could not justify robbing as a right, they left but Tamils attempting to justify robbing as a right is a fantastic nonsense and no brainer. “Fantastic nonsense” was the response of  Jawaharlal Nehru in the 1950’s when Tamils were claiming Tamil devolution in then Ceylon.

 No need to clarify if Srilankan nation exists, a nation MUST be ONE, with one language and culture as sovereign. But it is self-evident, the so called Srilankan nation is humbug and invalid, when it promotes separate “Tamil”, “Muslim” entities who are constitutionally accepted as separate. This giveaway of a Nation’s heritage is not done even by illegal robber nations after robbing or colonizing other nations’ lands. The Hela/Sinhela Nation’s Sovereign Right to our Nation and Island has been blatantly violated, which can be precisely stated as opting for voluntary national suicide.  

 It is beyond belief that neither the country’s leadership nor a vast majority of the Hela Nation understand this grave peril confronting us. Although, the author reiterated numerous times of this fact and the causes contributed to this mental blockage is the anti-national conditioning we were made to suffer by most of the past rulers, who were not our genuine national leaders, not much emancipation has gone through. The most tragic situation is that as a Hela National, the author’s letters reminding this fact is never allowed to publish in newspapers. This in itself is a gross violation of the human right of Hela People in their freedom of expression. Even the newspaper editors are being subjected to fear psychosis as a fallout of the anti-national conditioning. So what hope we have to come out of this harmful condition, which is further encouraging Tamil invasive terror plots to continue in their barbaric attempts to turn Heladiva into a second Tamil Nadu, with blatant fabrications for which our response is dumb and deaf.

 While Srilanka is our death knell when it promotes separate entities of “Tamil”, “Muslim” and even “Christian”. This is the root cause of all ills of Heladiva. It is common sense that Tamil country is Tamil Nadu, 50 Muslim countries and umpteen Christian countries are there to pursue their national aspirations, why do we have to commit suicide by bending over backwards?

 Now, some might come to a swift conclusion based on prior conditioning that this is racism. This opinion further enhances the non indigenous minorities in the Island to make much noise along the same lines against the Hela Nation. On the one hand many minority leaders already know that in other host countries, minorities do have to merge with the host nation while their languages and cultures etc. are only private matters.

 So they continue with their undue demands and arrogance as long as we continue to bend, not firm in upholding our National Sovereignty. Political solution, national question or legitimate grievances are clichƒÆ’†’©s these minorities improvise often to fool us. In fact, through these utterances what they are pushing is to gain full national status leading to the robbing of our tiny Island Country for their new mode of undercover colonization. Also, some members of minorities have been conditioned over decades within this upside down model of Srilankan nationhood to consider themselves as separate and exclusive entities. There could be another thought that times have changed, hence we should embrace change and no going back. Evolution and change is the norm but most changes in this context are man made wrongly. When such changes like in our case, as the small Nation of our national motherland is blatantly under threat of extinction and invasion of our Island Country “”…” it is our utmost duty to defend and the world to support this justifiable act. But the most reliable help is to help ourselves in the current world where vultures galore.

 Tamil invasive threat is still hovering over us, Muslims are fabricating a Muslim heritage within our tiny island, organised multiplying of Muslims is given freeway by allowing polygamy like in a Muslim country and they are arrogantly encroaching on our historic sites and government land with impunity, Christians are in cahoots with invasive intentions on our Hela Heritage. Do we not see this plight right in front of us, let alone Helaness, at least for the sake of human justice?

 Due to our Hela Nationhood being suppressed by an artificial Srilankan nation; our national sovereignty is under threat. National sovereignty of a nation is inviolable ever. In a host national country, even if the settler minorities exceed the host nation in population “”…” the country’s ownership to the host nation is not threatened because the whole population is identified with the host nation, where the minorities have merged as naturalized citizens of the ONE NATION. So, this rhetoric by some of our people that we Helas as racist, extremist or chauvinist, whenever we try to defend our National Right is mainly due to lack of understanding of nationhood concept. A nation consists of many races and the very nature of nationhood is to accommodate other races in becoming one nation in one country, or else it will be only one race. But it has to be accepted that every nation has evolved from an indigenous race of people of that land. At the same time, a certain member of a nation decides to settle in a host country, he or she is initially identified as a member of a race because the national status or national rights of a settler is not recognized in the new country. National unity is wholesome and no country can progress without national awareness and patriotism.  

 NATION

 Nation is not about race or genes, nationhood is the doorway for other migrant races when settled in a host national country to unite with the host nation, and nationhood is a mindset composed of a refined human concept of INCLUSIVITY. But in our Island Country, the current nation of Srilankan is the opposite, leaving a gaping hole for migrant races to set up own ghettoes, which drives them to further separation. This artificial SL nation is posing a direct threat to our national survival, providing fire to minorities to link up with their lands of national origins left behind to destabilize Heladiva. This was recently seen by the way Tamil Nadians arrogantly supported their kin in our national land.

 A vivid example for us to learn from is the American Nation and how its National Sovereignty is upheld. In spite, of being a settlers’ country having resorted to near extinction of America’s indigenous peoples and robbing their lands: the American nation with one language, one culture upholds its Sovereign Nationhood. And many races from different national countries have become INCLUSIVE proud American national citizens. Unlike, settler’s America, Heladiva is the indigenous national motherland of the Hela Nation and we have a greater right to uphold our inalienable national sovereignty within the tiny Island Country than Americans. Even president Obama having African origins, what he manifests is only American nationhood.      

 As an Island Nation, it is unimaginable that we must be the most suffered nation on earth against endless attempts of barbaric invasions and massacres over thousands of years. While so many indigenous island nations and small nations suffered extinction at the hands of robber nations and terrorists; we are still alive and holding fort. Therefore, not only for our sake as a Nation of People of our own right but as an example and an encouragement to other surviving small nations of the world – to sustain our Inalienable National Hela Sovereignty with indomitable spirit in duty of justice and truth!  

One Response to “Srilanka Nationhood is a contradiction in terms”

    Tamil is a language. It is a similar term to “Sinhala”. People speaking a certain language natively are ctegorised as a race, conventionaly. There is no language called “chinese” but Chinese are trying to unify all races but getting tem to speak the same language , Mandarin but they have the advantage of have a common script which can even ready by traditional Japanese.
    Religious groups are different. I wonder whether the terms “marakkala”, “jaa” etc was used to specify races and unfortunately by trying to be more decent by the use of the term “Muslims” unified this as a race in Sir lanka.
    It is justifiable to preserve all languages including Hela. It is not justifiable to discriminate or favour a particular race.
    Problem is minority groups always get together and act as “protectionists” starting discrimination process.
    One could imagine what would Sri lanakn “hela” race be if Bandaranayaka did not promote preserving Sinhala.
    However, by dealing directly with “minority fravouritsm” using very strict law and order enforcement, I believe all discriminations will come to an end.
