ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ One cannot understand the naivety , and simple stupidity of ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Sri Lanka ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”s inability ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ to Stand ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ against the continued humiliation by India and ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Tamil Nadu.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Is it important that Sri Lanka Cricket team should play in Tamil Nadu ? Is it not possible for the pilgrims to Buddhagaya find another route of accessƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  avoidingƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Tamil Nadu or postpone pilgrimage to BuddhagayaƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  until such time as India realises its error andƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  improve its relations?ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Many Sri Lankans also ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ go to India for shopping, more often to by sarees ,ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  jewelry and accessories for weddings. Sri Lanka produces enough clothes and jewelry therefore it is not necessary to buy Indian Sarees, bangles and golden necklaces.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Sri LankanƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s are very extravagant ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ in wedding and spend lavishly more often competing with others.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  We should ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ learn to have simple weddings making them ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ a private and a personal event. We cannot impose trade embargos but we could certainly curtail purchasing Indian goods.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Sri Lanka should stop importing Indian films, and Indian books and magazine.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  The ordinary Indians should be made to feel the injustice being committed by Tamil Nadu, and Indian government against Sri Lanka.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Import of motor vehicles, ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ luxury goods, buses,ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  and railway carriages from India should be stopped.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  India with its claim to leadership in Asian is still not civilised.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  The behaviour of the Tamils of TamilNadu is ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ample evidence of their uncivilized savagery , as it was manifested in the ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ assault ofƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Buddhist monks.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  There should be a campaign against visiting India.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  India should apologise for the assault of monks and pilgrims, and take action against those Tamilnadu criminals.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ The images of the uncivilized savage TamilsƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  of Tamil Nadu beating Buddhist monks should be produced as posters and pasted on Bill boards all over Sri Lanka, for our people to know the savagery of the Tamils of Tamil Nadu and the hypocrisy of India.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ The Government cannotƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  demand the closing down of Indian Embassy, but it could ask India to close down the Indian Consulates in the North and the South.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ IndiaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s relationship with Sri Lanka is arrogant.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  In votingƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  for the US resolution against Sri Lanka, India has shown its ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ rank indifference in its ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ relation with Sri Lanka preferring the ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ thugs and bullies of the West. Indian delegate before voting against Sri Lanka,ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  could have avoided hisƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  speech which only confirmed IndiaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s hidden agenda.

It was reported that the ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-IndiaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s envoy Dilip Sinha made a strongly worded statement on Sri Lanka, saying that it was imperative that Sri Lanka implemented the recommendations of the LLRC and moved forward in accordance with the 13th amendment to its constitution. ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-It is vital that Sri Lanka addresses issues like missing persons, detainees, and the return of private lands by militaryƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚, Sinha said, adding that the measures taken so far were unsatisfactory. And advised Sri Lanka, ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-it was IndiaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s belief that the end of the conflict provided an unique opportunity to Sri Lanka for reconciliation and the opportunity needed to be grabbed.ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚

Not failing to display its utter hypocrisy ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ he shamelessly stated, ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-India is Sri LankaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s closest neighbour and share thousands of years of relationship. We cannot be but untouched by what happens in Sri LankaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦and saidƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  that, ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-.. India would continue to engage with the country.ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ That was not a message of friendship.

India had outwardly shown that it was a friendly neighbour, but ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ worked against Sri Lanka behind its back.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  The terrorism in Sri Lanka was the making of India. It helped the terrorists in various waysƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  by training them within ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ India territory.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  India came to the help of the terrorists when they were about to be defeated by the Sri Lanka Armed Forces in 1987. India refused ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ to sell arms and ammunitions to the Government of Sri Lanka, and even demanded that not to purchase arms from China.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  India refused to provide ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ transport to Sri Lanka Armed Forces when they were sieged by the terrorists.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  India ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ even sold to Sri Lanka a second hand radar system that failed to detectƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  the ramshackle terrorist planes.

Sri Lanka ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ had ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ kept close relations with India as it did not want ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ the Western countries playing a damaging role in Sri Lanka , as it is ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ understood ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ from the introduction toƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  C.A.ChandrapremaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s book ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…- GotaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s WarƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  It states ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…- ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦.After India lost control of things in 1990 and stepped aside, the Western powers began playing a role in the Sri Lanka Conflict.ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

It also explains why the West has taken an anti-Sri Lanka stand ever since the end of terrorist war, going all out to stop its development and reconciliation efforts under the President Mahinda Rajapakse.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…- Usually, foreign interventions would mean that a foreign country would be able to influence, guide or control events in the country subject to the intervention.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Yet in Sri Lanka, no foreign power ever held the reins in their hands.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  No foreign power could switch things on or off in Sri Lanka as they pleased.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  The epicentre of the conflict always remainedƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  firmly in Sri Lanka.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  All foreign powers who thoughtƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  they could manipulateƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  or even influenceƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  things in Sri LankaƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  were to realise that they were only handmaidens and not mistresses.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  A recent Norwegian government commissioned report on their peace mediation efforts in Sri Lanka candidly admitted as such.ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚

Sri Lanka therefore suffers the consequence of its determined effort to eliminate the terrible terrorism without being distracted by the powerful West, and against IndiaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s expansionist intentions.

IndiaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s friendly relation with Sri Lanka began with the reign of King Asoka and ended thereafter.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Now it is time that Sri Lanka begins to assert itself.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  It is important in the first instance to remove the 13 Amendment from the Constitution, which was a part of IndiaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s plan ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ for ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ division and annexation of the north and East of Sri Lanka.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Secondly Sri Lanka should either ban TNA or file action against them for the breach of the Sri Lanka Constitution. TNA is a barrier against reconciliation of Communities.

India and its allies the USA and the West may repeat what it had been doing toƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Cuba with trade embargos and sanctions.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Sri Lanka should be strong to stand against their manipulations.

    I agree.

    You go to your friend’s house where there is a nasty black dog. The dog attacks you while your friend just watches. Is he a true friend? NO.

    This is what happens with India. India MUST CONTROL its Tamil Nadu dogs. Otherwise send them to us and we know how to.

    “India even sold to Sri Lanka a second hand radar system that failed to detect the ramshackle terrorist planes.”

    Well said. By doing that India PREVENTED us from buying a GOOD QUALITY Chinese radar that would have detected and helped us DESTROY LTTE planes.

    India tried everything to protect the LTTE just like how a mother would protect her criminal child.

    In the last stages of the war govt. sent SF to China. He bought $200 million weapons from China (later cancelled the order by Gota). India started to panic. That is why India didn’t interfere to save VP. We tied Mother India using her fear of China and punished her criminal child in the normal course of war.

    If any SL says India is their relative or India is a friend now, he is a traitor.

    ITs time now for MR to act, the only way to make India understand is NOT to buy Indian goods. Economical boycott is a good start. ALso, forget playing cricket in india for the time, let the indian team come to our soil and let our team play with better teams elsewhere.

    Thank you Charles. Yes, we need to close down the regional embassies and right NOW as a clearly identified protest, and NOT 12 months down the road when only a few will remember what India was up to at the UNHRC. While as you say we should not sever Diplomatic ties with India at the present time as too drastic a measure, there is nothing to stop us from downgrading the remaining embassy to a consulate just to deal with visas & passports and very limited trade. What is missing right now is a plan by the GoSL to deal with India taking into account the factors that you mention – and more. You should know more than anyone what the competency level of Sri Lankan administrators when there was not much GoSL support for the move to de-list the TNA for their blatant constitutional infringement of a reference to “Separation”. So, Charles, there you have it – S de Silva – London

    India has categorically divorced itself from the Asian Union. Twice did India take the anti-Sri Lanka stance while the bulk of the Asian nations – especially SAARC – stood by their Asian confrere. By its action India has integrated itself into the ‘divide and rule’ policy of the White Plunderers. As for the latter they have sown the seeds of strife even within India. As Gota recently said, this perilous situation should only reinforce the will not to confer the powers that Tamil politicians demand. IF the Government does so the north (if not also the east) will be grabbed by Tamil Nadu. Given this violence unleashed by Tamil Nadu with the active and open connivance of the TNA, even holding elections in the north would be detrimental to national security. That the TNA will win such an election is obvious. They will brandish their victory as a referendum for their demand of independence.

    Gota’s realistic assessment of the situation and the dangers wrought in the impending September elections can only point out one solution, which the abrogation of the 13A provision. That is the tight rope on which national security is wobbling at the very moment. Sambandan is wooing the Muslims as part of the Tamil speaking community. the intentions are clear. It is meant to amalgamate the North and East in accordance with 13A. From whatever angle the national sovereignty and security issue is looked at, the sword of Damocles dangling over the head of Mother Lanka is the infamous and loathsome 13A. 13A is therefore the the key to the Pandora’s box the Insidious Western Collaborators the Indians have placed in our hands.

    The salvation of this country lies in getting rid of this 13A. Every other solution conceived to circumvent this issue is hastening the demise of the nation. Abrogate the 13A provision…annul Provincial Councils and with it the northern elections scheduled for September…people the north with families of the majority community.

    Since the 1920’s the Tamil cry and endeavour was for separatism. The Tamils have not wavered from that position since then. Not to see this truth is like being blinded by the midday sun. Duttu Gemunu failed in neutralizing the north, so did Sapumal. This is the chance for the Rajapakses to correct those historic blunders.

    MR-Gota, do it NOW. Do it now and have your names engraved in the heart of this sovereign nation for all eternity. Fail and the generations to come will spit (even more, urinate) on your names.

    TAMIL NADU is the gory, uncivlised filling in the sandwich, between India & Sri Lanka.

    Points to note in the present situation :

    Sri Lanka has had good relations with India till the Cold War times and the Tamil Separatist movement which rode on the back of the Cold War. The Tamil Separatism movement initially started as a Caste War in Jaffna.

    * Tamil Nadu will never allow good relations between India & Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka is the whipping boy for Tamil Nadu to hide their problems of caste/poverty in TN. Even historically Lanka had to face Southern Tamil invasions. Why don’t hey leave Lanka alone ? It is because of the Caste/poverty issues of Tamil Nadu. It could also be that Free Education & Health Care are given to Tamils of Sri Lanka, and not to those in TN. This could be an irksome issue for TN to face.

    * Sri Lanka depends too much on Tamil Labor. The tea plantations especially ought to Modernise & Mechanise to allow all others to work in those areas. It’s time to let go the British made ‘line rooms’ and the insular low caste mentality that goes with them. Buddhist Sri Lanka does not recognise Caste.

    * Also, deport all Illegal Migrants.

  7. Fran Diaz Says:

    I should say that Buddhist Sri Lanka does not recognise the Tamil Nadu (& Indian) Tamil Caste system which is a ‘born to caste’ caste system, 3,000 yrs old.

  8. Lorenzo Says:

    If we can create a RIFT between TN and Endia, we can THRIVE.

    I say, GOSL should BROADCAST, DISTRIBUTE Tamilian nationalist stuff (banned in Endia) to TN via rehabilitated LTTE cadres. Now TN is BOILING. We should make use of this situation to create a RIFT between Endia and Tamilians.

    Endia will have to bring the army to TN and then the fun will begin.

    After that Endia will NEVER be able to support ANY resolution against SL!!!

    India seems to have shifted stance. See article below :

    “INDIA REJECTS TN RESOLUTION AGAINST SRI LANKA March 29, 2013 05:46 pmDaily Mirror

    Days after the DMK pulled out of the Centre and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa barred Sri Lankan cricketers from playing in Chennai, the Centre has taken a tough stand on politics over Sri Lankan Tamils.

    India’s External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid has rejected the Tamil Nadu Assembly resolution against Colombo.

    The resolution sought a separate Eelam for Sri Lankan Tamils and said Sri Lanka should not be treated as a friendly country by India.

    Speaking to CNN-IBN, Khurshid said while the government was sensitive to Tamil concerns, it won’t accept such demands.

    “I take it on board that there are very strong feelings in Tamil Nadu and not just of other parties, but our own party members have very strong feelings. And we have taken those feelings on board. These feelings are not entirely out of sync with what many people in the world think,” he said.

    “At the same time we do believe that the negotiation we have done with Sri Lanka, the dialogue we have with Sri Lanka and the effort we have made with Sri Lanka is equally important,” Khurshid said.

    On the resolution adopted by the Tamil Nadu Assembly, he said, “the rest of India is not supporting this.”

    “If all of India was supporting it, it would be another matter. But if one state supports something we are sensitive to their concerns, but we don’t have to necessarily accept everything they say,” he added”.
