OPEN LETTER  to

Mr. Veerasingham Ananda Sangaree, MP  
Leader of the TULF and member of the Tamil National Alliance (TNA)  
 Parliament of Sri Lanka, Sri Jayewardenapura, Sri Lanka

Dear Ananda:

Let me roll the days back for you to 37 months ago.  The day was a Saturday, the 30th of August 2008.  It was a sunny day during the waning days of Scarborough’s (Ontario) summer.  The leaves outside the Scarborough City Centre were still in their foliage green.  And Scarborough as you may recall was really a “ƒ”¹…”Little Jaffna’, and you were right at home in that city, with thousands of Tamil refugee-immigrants roaming the streets, ladies in saris with red thumbprints between their eye brows., the streets lined up with  Mini-Malls with sari stores, Tamil grocery stores, jewellery stores, Kottu roti Curry Huts, Thosai boutiques, you name it, and you had it all that you were used to in pre-Eelam War, Killinochchi and Jaffna.

And you and I had been invited to attend the special meeting of Toronto’s Sri Lanka United National Association (SLUNA).  One of the chief guests was the wife of the late Lakshman Kadirgamar whose life was snuffed out by a Tamil Tiger, even though he was a Tamil like you. She had arrived from Sri Lanka. The other chief guest was Palitha Kohona who had also travelled from Sri Lanka to deliver the key note speech.  We both enjoyed the honour of being ceremonially escorted to our seats to the sound of Magul Bera percussion beats with the rest of the VIPs.  And you addressed the gathering.  Remember? By then I didn’t know you other than following your story of the “alleged persecuted” Tamils who flew out of the Koha’s nest when the foreign flood gates were opened after the July 1983 riots in search of green pastures, which looked far better than the green chilli and red onion fields of the North.

Then at sundown, you and I were seated at the head table, at Sri Lanka’s Consular General Bandula Jayasekera’s residence, to enjoy a buffet dinner.  I was seated at one end of the head table and Palitha Kohona was seated at the other end.  You were seated to my left and Sugandhi Kadiragamar ( Lakshman Kadiragamar’s wife) was seated to my right. Remember?

After I gave an ear full to Yasmin Ratansi, the former Liberal MP for DonValley East, who was seated at the immediate right of Palitha Kohona, for  her Liberal party being vulgar and morally irresponsible for letting your Tamils in Ontario collect two million dollars a month for 13 long years to stuff the Tamil Tiger war-chest to buy lethal war weapons to kill my Sinhala people.

After that spiel, the conversation with you went like this.  “I am Ananda Sangaree and you?” stretching out your hand to shake mine.

“I am Asoka Weerasinghe“ I said shaking your hand, and you said, “Then we are brothers..no!  My first name is Veerasingham.  Are you my older brother or younger brother?” you asked, having noticed my silvering beard and moustache.  And you still looking young at your age and you looked a podian beside me.

“How old are you”, I asked.  And you told me your age.  “Then you are my older brother and I am your younger brother Ananda,” I said.  Remember? We exchanged some nice pleasantries.

After the dinner was over and we were moving among guests, you spotted me and called me.  I came to you.  You put your arm around my shoulders and asked the “ƒ”¹…”official photographer’ to take a photograph of us together saying, “take a photograph of us two courageous warriors?”  Remember?  I never got a copy of it and I am not sure whether you got one either. But I’d like to have one.

And now comes the crunch and rub, my Big Brother Veerasingham.  You got my goat and I was “pissed off” when I read in India’s Zee News.  “Three Tamil politicians on Monday complained to India that the government was settling Sinahalese in Sri Lanka’s dominantly Tamil north without resolving the festering ethnic problem”¦”¦.Anandasangaree, Sitharthan and Sritharan represent the Tamil United Liberation Front, People’s Liberation Organization of Tamil Eelam and the Eelam People’s Revolutionary Front respectively.”

 All what I can say is “Holy Ganesh, are these three Tamil politicians nuts, spoiling for another 27-year drawn out fight, to kill another 100,000 people, and wipe out a whole young generation of Tamil kids as a Baby Brigade,  because of the stupidity of my Big Brother Veerasingham and his two politician buddies.”

Let’s get one thing clear and etched under your three thick skulls, Big Brother  Veerasingham “”…” North of Sri Lanka is NOT a No-Man’s land for us Sinhalese. It is our land as much as yours.  I hope you got that one clear as it is clear as the chimes of a Buddhist temple bell on a Poya day morning.

 So just cut out that holy cow-dung,  Ananda.  You acted as if you were a five year old Tamil spoiled brat, not allowing Asoka, the three year old Sinhala kid play in the sand box  in a common  public playground and whining to your Mother India’s Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai saying “”…” “I want that sand box and get that Sinhalese Asoka out, it is my Tamil sand box!”

Little Sinhala Asoka refuses as he stood his ground claiming his democratic right, so the little Tamil Ananda who will grow up to win the UNESCO Madanjeet Singh Prize for the Promotion of Tolerance and Non-Violence, gets into one of his Tamil temper tantrums, throws sand into little Sinhala Asoka’s eyes and runs away.  Little Sinhala Asoka gets angry chases after little Tamil Ananda, catches up with him and beats the shit out of him.  And that is how wars start.  Remember, how Mavil Aru started Eelam War IV where the “ƒ”¹…”invincible’ Tamil Tigers met their Waterloo on 24 July 2006?

But not only that, little Sinhala Asoka turns to Indian Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai, points his finger at little Tamil Ananda, thumping both his feat on the ground and says””…” “If he doesn’t want Sinhalese moving into Tamil areas in the North, then ask him to take the 41 per cent Tamil population in my Colombo and bugger-off to the North which he claims is theirs.  It is that simple.  What is good for the goose is good for the gander.  Who the hell do these Tamils think they are, when they have no right, geomorphologically, historically, archaeologically, ethnographically and ethnologically to claim the North as theirs.  That’s buckets full of jardee, Ranjan Mathai.  They are most welcome to choke themselves with those buckets of jardee and swig it down with a coconut shell full of Jaffna toddy.”

That is my say to you my Big Brother Veerasingham.  Let’s debate this issue with me, before you three start another Tamil-separatist war between your Tamils and my Sinhalese who have accommodated you lot in Colombo with open arms, and that too happens to be 41 percent of the population of the capital.  And also let you Tamils own rental flats/annexes in Wellawatte and  yet refuse to rent them to the Sinhalese.  Even though the Tamil landlords violate human rights by barring Sinhalese tenants could be challenged in court,  make a note Big Brother Veerasingham, that we Sinhalese seem to be a tolerant lot.

If we, Sinhalese for the sake of harmony are prepared to live with the commercial store signs “”…” Chelliah Sari Emporium, Suppiah Spice Market., Rajaiah Jewellery Store  and Appaiah Thosai Bhavan  all over Pettah and patronized by us Sinhalese, then Big Brother Veerasingham, you better get used to seeing commercial store signs like Perera Bakery, Appuhamy Kopi Kade,  Raddalgoda Furniture Store, Silva Pharmacy,  Jayaguru’s Fish Market and Bandara Super Market in the North’s Jaffna and Killinochchi.  That is how the reality cookie crumbles, unless you want another fight Big Brother Veerasingham because of your stupidity and that of the stupid politician buddies of yours. 

Don’t you ever forget when you lot complained to your Mother India last time, they dropped you a few parippu bags from a Anatov Transport plane  having sent four Mirage 2000s screaming over the Sri Lankan sovereign skies, parked a war ship outside the Colombo harbor waters to bully Sri Lanka to sign the Indo-Lanka Agreement in favour of you Tamils, Rajiv Gandhi got clobbered with a rifle by a courageous sailor during his guard of honour and he sent 70,000 Indian soldiers that dotted the North and East to keep peace. And as a “Thank You” for feeding your Northern Tamils parippu and sending in the IPKF forces with the task of Bhutalization of Sri Lanka, he was blown to smithereens by a Tamil Tiger suicide bomber at Sriperumbudur on May 21, 1991.  You Tamils seem to  have a mental haze of all that happened because you all started to whine to your Mother India, and you don’t seem to  have learnt a lesson out of that, do you?  You still keep whining to your Mother India hoping that you will get a patch of prime real estate in the North to call it your Eelam, don’t you Big Brother Veerasingham! Just stop that  Masala-foolishness.

 If you are in Ottawa, look me up and we can share a  cup of  good Ceylon tea. I want to talk to you, perhaps there may be a reason for you wanting to talk to your younger brother Asoka Weerasinghe too.

Sincerely

Asoka Weerasinghe (Your younger Brother)

    AW, well said my veritable “elder-brother” :)) !!!

    Basically, this is a trend as far as I am concerned.

    Yes, I am NOT surprised that these Tamil RACIST-SEPARATIST SCUM will utter all kinds of niceties to us when it suits them, but soon thereafter when they reach their own TAMIL RACIST COMFORT ZONES (i.e. manifested such as in this case where this “Veerasingham” RACIST-SEPARATIST SCUMBAG found it cozy and quite natural-to-be-in-company with the well known TNA LTTE proxies AND go to India AND embark on vile racist attacks against the majority Sinhalese of Sri Lanka) they show their true colours!

    This is a lesson for us Sinhelas that we never seem to learn – i.e. never to ever unquestionably-trust these vile racist-separatist scum, but to treat/regard their words, actions and deeds with “extreme prejudice” and act accordingly ourselves!

    OaO Asithri

  2. OaO Asithri Says:

    As I said elsewhere, Sri Lanka’s HATE LAWS must be reviewed and revamped – to stop this type of blatant racist attacks against any community in the country (in this case Tamil racist-separatists’ racial attacks against the majority Sinhela community of the country)!

    Fantastic write up.

    “If he doesn’t want Sinhalese moving into Tamil areas in the North, then ask him to take the 41 per cent Tamil population in my Colombo and bugger-off to the North which he claims is theirs. It is that simple.”

    Absolutely!

    Yes. If Tamils (no matter who it is) are against Sinhalese moving to so called Tamil areas in the North, GET OUT of Colombo NOW peacefully!

    No double standards will be tolerated anymore.

    Ananda Sangari (AS) is a hardcore racist. We have mentioned it years ago. Unfortunately he has become a worse racist after the war. Here is proof:

    1). AS is a signatory to the racist 1977 TULF manifesto that vowed to create Tamil Elam.

    2). AS has craftily pushed his racist agenda pretending to be a moderate.

    3). He always supported the Tamil Nadu model for Sri Lanka as a political solution. one Tamil nadu causes enough hatred, violence and threats we certainly don’t need another.

    4). He never resigned from the TNA. He was not given the top post and as a result he was expelled. but he pretended to be away from the TNA.

    5). At this year’s LG election in Kilinochchi, his TULF came to an understanding with the TNA. Although he openly critisises TNA, his TULF policies are as racist as TNA.

    6). Now AS is openly hate mongering trying to incite violence again.

    7). Going to India and discrediting the Sinhalese and Sri Lanka is an unforgivable offence. He must be adequately punished for this crime.

    AS should not to end up like his “thambi” by following the path of war and racism. That is the price tag.

    This country is for everyone to live everywhere. It is not Tamil Nadu. There are no Tamil Homelands.

    Please don’t mess with the ethnic integration process. Consequences will be ugly. Give peace a chance at least now.

    No Sinhalese in the north = No peace.

  4. Siri Says:

    Sri Lanka is for all Sri lankans and we should not forget this fact. Indians have no business to even discuss this subject. They should try to solve some of their own problems first before interfering in our country. We must encourage more non tamils also to go to the North and East as the country is spending tax payer’s money to develop this part of the country.

  5. Sirih Says:

    I think Anadasangaree is a lunatic spoiling for a fight… This guy is showing his true colours and SL govt. should not only tell him but also to Indians to but out of our issues.

    SL govt is so weak in media management of the countries issues and hope they have a new foreign minister with the backbone instead of this weakling which his “use by date” is long gone…

  6. Ben_silva Says:

    Sri Lanka should be for all its citizens. Sri Lanka is a nation state with different ethnic groups and Tamils should not have a claim for part of the country, just because they invaded and killed Singhalese, some time back. The whole of Lanka was the home land of the Sinhalese. and Tamil Nadu is the home land of the Tamils. Unfortunately, Singhalese have not been competitive enough to survive in the so called home land of the Tamils, and pushed out from their own home land.. In short the Singhalese have been pushed out from their own home land, due to lack of competitiveness. The law that operate in nature is survival of the fittest. The Sinhalese have not been competitive enough to survive in the North, East, Hill country and now even the Capital Colombo.
    We cannot blame others for our own lack of competitiveness.
    We appear to hang on to an Indian dogma that even Indians do not believe any more.
    In order to survive, we need to have a will to win and survive and prepared to undergo pain and suffering to make a gain.
    Dogmas that promote giving up desires s and make us fearful of hard work, (in case of suffering ) need to be dumped, as it creates people without a competitive spirit.
    We need to ask how did we manage to lose a good chunk of our only homeland and learn lessons.
    Tamils think of the` North and the East as captured areas from us and are reluctant to allow us in. In the near future if we are not careful, and continue to sleep, the Capital Colombo and the hill country will also be the Tamil home land. We have to, as a matter of priority, to minimise the threat to Lanka and the Sinhalese, need to dismantle mono ethnic areas in Lanka and allow the displaced Sinhalese back to the North and East and the hill country.
    At the end of the day, if the Sinhalese are not fit enough to survive, due to their passive belief system, they may follow Nalanda Buddhists and could get wiped out. Indians have dumped Buddhism after the Nalanda debacle. We have to investigate why we are not competitive enough and need to take remedial measures. The modern world is highly competitive and now we are facing global competition and global threats. We have to be prepared to defend our country before we lose more of it.
    As for Ananda many disputes could be eliminated if he treats the Sinhalese as his people, just as many of us like to consider Tamils as our people, the sons and daughters of Lanka. In the past Anada hs been an honest person.

  7. Nihal Fernando Says:

    We are the only Sinhala nation living in this tiny tear drop like island in the Indian ocean where our immediate neighbor India is 63 times bigger than the island Sri Lanka. When America was already occupied by the Red Indians (I don’t know why they were called red Indians when India was elsewhere) Columbus intruded America and told that he discovered it. The same way these Tamils intruded or imported from South India to work in the tea plantations now claim the land in east and north of the country. Tamils know that we Sinhalese always jealous of our own people. They envy, hate each other. They will tolerate a Tamil businessman prospers but detests his own fellow Sinhalese climbing up the ladder. We have so many divisions and sub divisions by casts, religions, politics and other ideologies.

    I saw on one online paper that former President Hon. Chandrika has told the American Ambassador Ms. Butenis that Rajapakses are uneducated, uncultured, corrupted buggers. See how one time president of the country spiting looking up. When she was the most corrupted leader known as Bandit Queen she ought to be more careful not to betray the country. If we do not stand as one Sinhala nation these racist Tamils will keep pestering us.

  8. S de Silva Says:

    Well said Asoka for the nth time!! Unfortunately I find that your words are not effectively and OFFICIALLY repeated loud and clear jointly by the UPLF & the UNP to India and the rest of the World so that they get the message and there is never the slightest room for any misunderstanding on what will ever be allowed in Sri Lanka. This message has to repeatedly go out OFFICIALLY by the Government & the Opposition locally and abroad that if Tamils want a separate state because of their ‘Tamilness’ the only place for that is in their place of Tamil Dravidian Racial Origin. AND THAT IS none other than the State of TAMIL NADU in India. All citizens of Sri Lanka have an equal right to live anywhere on the Island. It is extremely sad the Sinhala majority with their politicians even now are having the ‘frog in the well’ outlook and fail see the wider picture and announce this (your) sentiment Locally, Globally and repeatedly. The claim by the Tamils that they are in Colombo by personal choice exercising the very freedom to live anywhere while the Sinhalas should not is unacceptable. Whether the Tamils have moved to Colombo exercising their right to live anywhere at their own expense or whether the Sinhalas are assisted by the SL Government to live anywhere is irrelevant. If the Tamils NO MATTER how they have arrived can live in Colombo with the Sinhalas , so can the Sinhalas live in the North with the Tamils if need be!! This indeed is the message that has to go out officially and repeatedly – S de Silva -London

  9. Muhammad FS Says:

    Beautifully written Asoka.

    Fully agree with you.

    Government should do more to settle hundreds of thousands of Sinhalese and Muslims in the north.

    That is the only solution to this problem.

    We cannot turn our dear country into a India where Tamil, Malayalis, Bengalis, Panjabis, etc. live separately.

  10. Fran Diaz Says:

    Et tu, Mr A’sangaree ! and to think I always thought of you as a moderate Tamil person !

    On a more serious note, it has been archeologically and otherwise proven that there are no Tamil Areas as such in Sri Lanka. From time to time, various parts have been briefly occupied by Tamil invaders, only to have matters normalise again, viz. Elara in the NCP area. Why is it that Tamils of Tamil Nadu come over to Lanka and claim it is theirs ? It is plain invasion. Are invaders tolerated in modern times ? NO. Either live with us in Sri Lanka as a Sri Lankan or depart back to Tamil Nadu.

    (1) The other aspect is that Tamil Refugees who are from Sri Lanka and now in Tamil Nadu camps are now allowed to come back to Sri Lanka. They are returning in batches of 30-50 people by sea route. There are about 200,000 plus Tamils in these camps. In return, should not the Tamil people who came to Lanka illegally during the ltte reign in the N&E be sent back to Tamil Nadu ? There are thousands of such illegal Tamil migrants already in Lanka. Can Sri Lanka afford to go on accepting these unwanted people from Tamil Nadu who keep coming into Lanka as illegal migrants ?

    (2) Let’s go back in time a bit. After the Sirimi/Shasthri Pact signed in Oct 1964, these are the figures of Tamil people who did go back and those who did not. The Agreement stated that Sri Lanka takes in 375,000 Indian Tamils, and India takes 600,000 Hill Country Tamils. Of these, 506,000 opted for Indian citizenship and 470,000 opted for Lanka citizenship. Repatriation to India has been slow, and by 1982, 86,000 were still pending (no Indian papers yet) and 90,000 given Indian papers were still in Lanka. This adds up to about 176,000 of those who opted to go back but still in Lanka. What is their status now ? By now, the numbers must be around 200,000 at least.

    * For Tamil leaders these people represent a vote bank. For others of Lanka it means an Agreement with India was not honoured and Lanka is left with a permanent ‘Tamil Problem/Grievances’ which is the permanent play ground for Tamil politicians.

    * What is Mr Anandasangree’s motive in making such a statement to the detriment of both the Sinhala & Tamil communities ? Whatever his motives, he is just spoiling the chances for real peace in Lanka.

    (3) The role of Tamil Nadu vis-a-vis Lanka should also be examined. In more recent times, we have witnessed TN fishermen poaching in Lanka sea waters, taking billions of rupees worth of fish daily. TN fishermen have trawled their own sea waters too much turning them into barren areas and are now poaching Lanka waters. TN leaders constantly complain to Delhi about SL Navy harrassment of TN fishermen and that the island of Kuchativu must be ‘taken back’ by India. TN leaders constantly interfere with Lanka matters in the political sphere. The more Tamil people who enter Lanka, the more this interference will be.

    Conclusion: Tamil Nadu politics/economics are impinging on Sri Lanka. Mr Anandasangaree and other Tamil leaders must decide : do their loyalties lie with Tamil Nadu or with Sri Lanka ? The middle of the Palk Straits is an uncomfortable place to park their political conscience. They are endangering the lives of all Sri Lankans.

    Sangaree is no moderate Tamil, but an ILLETERATE TAMIL ALWAYS HARPING FOR THE EXACT POUND OF FLESH!!!
    This RACIAST SCUM was sleeping while LTTE was killing my innocent Sinhalese citizens in hundreds and thousands and he was hiding from LTTE as well. Now the CAT IS OUT OF THE BAG.
    The best remedy, Sangaree The Tamil Raciast, is, LEAVE SRI LANKA AND RESIDE IN TAMIL NADU!!!

    Asoka, as usual very good piece of article exposing the double standard of a RACIAST TAMIL.

    Ref: OPEN LETTER to Mr. Veerasingham Ananda Sangaree, MP
    Asoka Weerasinghe FYI, Mr Veerasingham is not MP now ( he was former Kilinochchi MP),

    He only got less than 1000 votes in Kilinochchi because he was not supporting VP’s day dream!
    He is a realistic person who visited many Time to Thalatha Malikai
    Kandy & He stongly believe that All of us have right to live every part of Lanka !
    If Perera Bakery open in Kilinochchi He is the first person will buy Sinhala Paan & Sinichchampal !
