The cartoon that decided the 1956 election defeat of the UNP
Posted on August 3rd, 2015

This cartoon sealed the fate of the UNP in 1956

It depicted Sir John Kotelawala riding an elephant (the symbol of the UNP) pointing a spear at the Buddha statue. Accompanying Sir John was people dressed in western garb drinking and dancing (Western Liberalism slowly attempting to remove the Buddhist cultural heritage of Sri Lanka) in the foreground was a calf killed and ready to be barbecued…(Buddhists have been appealing against animal slaughter in keeping with Buddhas preaching to treat Man and Animal equally)

This cartoon shook the Sinhala Buddhists

    This is exactly the Cartoonists should do today.

    Unfortunately we can not put a woman with Run-nil on the elephant. We can add Velu’s flag and cyanide capsules wearing carders somewhere. Solhem, Hilary, Modi etc will add more colours. WE also can add damaged Dalada maligawa in the backgroud.

    Same fate to Sri Lankan if UNP and Ranil comes to power. Ranil/Sira/Chandrika will bring our Motherland under the occupation of western and Indian Godfathers of theirs. Obama/Modi/Cameron combination, the advisers and Financiers of Ranil/Chandrika/Sira also canvassing on behalf of these traitors openly to get rid of the leader who united this blessed land. We shouldn’t be misled by their bogus promises and believe their damn lies. They have shown that they are not clean but crooked. Peaceful country suddenly became a land of terror with daylight murders,kidnappings,Accidents and violence. To change this scenario we need a powerful,fearless leader and that is none other than Mahinda Rajapksa therefore give your valuable vote to “BETEL” on Aug 17th without fail.

    56දී කල ඉන්දියානු ජඩවැඩ හා සින්හලයින්ගේ මොල හේදීම. ඔබලා දන්නවාද බන්ඩගෙ හොරුරැල ආවට පස්සෙ ජනපද වියාපාරය නතර වූ බව. සින්හල වියාපාරකයින් විනාසකල බව.චන්ද්‍රිකා රනිල් හා සිරිසේන අපිව ආපසු 56ට ගෙනගියා ඉන්දියානු ජඩයන්ට ඕනෑ කරනවිදියට.

    Now the Buddhists take animals to Munneswaram Kaali Kovil. What a contradiction. 2005 Mahinda did what Sir John did, stood up to Indian Imperialists.

  5. Fran Diaz Says:

    If what Christie says is correct in stating that “Buddhists” take animals to Munneswaran Kali Kovil for sacrifice, then such ‘Buddhists’ have to be Tamil Dalit Buddhists who are combining their earlier accepted Dalit practices with Buddhism. It is not a Hindu practice, but only a Dalit practice in India, now transferred to Lanka.

    Tamil Nadu has banned Animal Sacrifice, and so should Sri Lanka. It is a SHAME that Sri Lanka, a Buddhist country, has not done so already.

    BBS, where are you ??
