  1. Sri Rohana Says:

    Minister Champika Ranawaka is a true patriotic hero of our days. Minister Champika Ranawaka, Dr.Gunadasa Amarasekera, Prof. Nalin de Silva, Soma Thero, Rathana Thero, Mr.S.L Gunasekera, Minister Gammanpila are famous Sri Lankans who have seen the danger of tamil racist terrorism against Sri Lanka and Sinhala nation. Bravely they educated Sinhala society how dangerous the tamil terrorism. Then only Sinhala community understood and realized what is going to happen to them.
    When Chandrika (Dona Katherina) tried to implement PTOM in 2006, with prabakaran and Norway. J.H.U’s Rathana Thero who objected and stopped it. In Mavil Aru scenario JHU led the campaign for Eastern Province farmers. This was the turning point of LTTE’s defeat and later wiped out from Eastern Province and entire Sri Lanka.
    As a peace loving Sri Lankan I am always appreciate and grateful to JHU and Minister Ranawaka for the brave service they have done to Sri Lanka.
