Wake up Sri Lanka Sinhalayo
Posted on August 7th, 2015

By Charles.S.Perera

Sinhalayo you have come a long way not to disappear now as a small community of dependent Sinhala, hemmed between a Tamil State in the North and a Muslim State in the East. Know your past to build your future.

Sri Lanka was inhabited by different tribes the Sinha, Naga and Yaksa.  The dominant of them the Sinha had formed the original Sinhala nation absorbing the Naga and Yaksa into it.  There were neither the Tamils nor the Muslims.

The Compassionate Buddha had already come to  Sri Lanka 281 years before the arrival of Venerable  Arahant Mahinda, but the Buddha Sasana had still not been established. It was after the arrival of  Venetrable Arahant Mahinda that the King Devanampiyatissa offered  the Island Kindom of his  to the Buddha  Sasana and since then people of the country became  Sinhala Buddhists, and there being no other rival ethnic group the Buddhist Lanka became their motherland.   Our country prospered after the introduction of  Buddhism. There were many monasteries and Buddhist places of worship built by great Sinhala Kings.  The Sinhala were a proud and a prosperous people.  Things began to change later on due to political rivalry amoung Sinhala Kings.

The Sinhala Buddhists suffered from the south Indians invaders, plunderers and thieves who came to attack our country from time to time.  The first  foreign invasion was by the  Chola  Prince Elara.  He set up a kingdom in Anuradhapura and ruled for 44 years from 205 to 161 before the present era.  The period saw the Sinhala people  suffering under a strong foreign invasion. The Sinhala Kingdom was shifted to the south.  The Sinhala Buddhists were not war mongering, but very peaceful  and religious.  The King Kawantissa did not want to go to war with the invader Elara, as he had a strong army, and did not want  large numbers of his people die in a war.

But his son  Prince Dutugemunu was not satisfied, having part of his beloved motherland invaded and occupied  by Elara a Cholan. He decided against his fathers’ protest to declare war against Elara.  King Dutugemunu killed the Chola King in war and re-established the kingdom in Anuradhapura and united the Country under one flag.

The Sinhala kingdom thrived and the people were happy again.  The second invasion from India came from Kalinga in 1215 AD. Kalinga Magha  set up his kingdom in Polonnaruwa. He was a cruel invader.  He destroyed many places of Buddhist worship killed Buddhist monks and built Hindu temples.  His tyrannical rule lasted 21 years .  He was finally defeated  and chased away by King Vjayabahu.

Sri Lanka though it wanted to be a peaceful country with its people following the teachings of the Compassionate Buddha  it had to suffer from invaders and others who came in the guise of traders and merchants.  The Sinhala Buddhists were tolerant  and readily accommodated  all those who came without paying attention to their  ulterior motives.

Subsequently we were colonised  by three nations and people suffered having been forced to change their ancient  Buddhist culture, some  accepting the religion of the invaders imposed on them by force or accepting by necessity allowing others races to settle down amoung them.

To-day we have  political problems as a result of our earlier tolerance in accepting  all without questioning their motives.  The Tamils settled down in the North, the Muslims in the East and spread into Sinhala areas without leaving space for the Sinhala to live peacefully in their abodes, live their Buddhist lives, and conduct their religious rights.

Now the Tamils and Muslims have not only occupied the space  of the Sinhala , but are also demanding that the country be divided to set up their Racial separatist states.  They clear our forests to build settlements for themselves, making all effort to make Sinhala a minority in their own country.

Christianity and Catholicism introduced by the Portuguese, Dutch and the British divided  the Sinhala people, until the Sinhala people lost their true identity.  Now there are Sinhala Buddhists, Sinhala Christians and Sinhala Catholics.

The British who colonised the country last did more damage  to the people and the country than the previous colonial rulers.  They targeted the Sinhala Buddhists and wanted to remove their dominance in their Island home.  Even today the USA, UK and the West are all out to diminish the importance of the Sinhala in Sri Lanka.  UNP is knowingly or unknowingly  contributing to this agenda of the West

In 1948 Sri Lanka was given independence.  The UNP who took over the rule of Sri Lanka from the British were not different from the British, imitating them in dress, language, and culture.   Even today the UNP is identifiable by the  tie , coat and  trousers.

The first change after independence came in 1956 with S.W.R.D.Bandaranaike forming a SLFP Government.  The British imposed Democracy which divided  Sinhala further  now according to political party lines, while the Tamils and Muslims gathered together.

There was political corruption amoung the Sinhala politicians who developed political clans and divided  Sinhala people.  The UNP did not forget its slavish subjugation to Western  culture and still  imitates the British, in dress speech, and divisive political methods used by their British political masters. In to this period of chaos after the assassination of SWRD Banadaranaike , came virulent Tamil racist politicians who demanded equal rights along with the Sinhala.

The worst was yet to come in 1983 after failure of the Successive UNP Governments to build communal unity, and stop Indian influence in Sri Lanka.  A goup of Tamil youth were taken in hand by the Indian secret agents  under the instruction of Indra Gandhi, to train them in terrorism.  After India had trained Prabhakaran and a handful of others in terrorism they were released in Sri Lanka.  They announced their presence with the caused  a backlash by the Sinhala, on which the Tamils put the blame on the Sinhala. It was the Prabhakaran and his terrorists who really started it.

That was the beginning of terrorism in Sri Lanka. They gradually  became a powerful force helped by India and also by the West who wanted to diminish the dominance of  Sinhala in Sri Lanka.  The terrorists  cunning, resourceful, and ruthless were helped by the Western Governments and funded by the Tamil expatriates living abroad. The terrorists became an important armed force with modern arms and armament.

The successive UNP governments more concerned about retaining political power in their hand were no match to the terrorist forces.  JR Jayawardhane of the UNP failed to stop the terrorist though he nearly succeeded in doing so in 1978, but fell into a trap set by India and agreed to introduce the most uncouth 13 Amendment to the constitution of Sri Lanka, in exchange for an Indian Peace Keeping Force to disarm the terrorists.

R.Premadasa wanted to send away the Indian Peace Keeping Force and fortified the terrorists by handing over to them arms and ammunition to defeat the IPKF. His treachery caused him his life.

Thereafter, it was the turn of the  Chandrika Kumaratunga , who had to battle with the  terrorism along with unscrupulous back stabbing Hakeem and his clique of SLMC parliamentarians. But Hakeem had by then entered in to talks with the terrorist leader Prabhakaran to later  sign a MoU to form a Muslim state in the East. Hakeem left Chandrika Kumaratunga’s government causing her to dissolve the parliament and call for elections. It was UNP that won the election and formed a Government, putting Chandrika into great difficulty. Ranil Wickramasinghe became her Prime Minister.

Ranil Wickramasinghe as the Prime Minister completely took over the government  making the President Chandrika Kumaratunga a decoration.  This is exactly what Ranil Wickramasinghe is doing today. The President Maitripala Sirisena is reduced to being a puppet held by Ranil leaving him a small space to move about. To-day Ranil Wickramasinghe is the President doing what he wants the way he wants , and Maitripala Sirisena is reduced to a mere puppet with a big mouth to talk.

When Ranil Wickramasinghe became the Prime Minister under the President Chandrika Kumaratunga, he just ignored President Chndrika Kumaratunga.  Along with Eric Solheim Ranil Wickramasinghe negotiated with Prabhakaran the terrorist leader  and   entered with him  the CAF.

Chandrika eventually took away Ranils Ministry. Chandrika having no intelligent political vision, nor imagination  could only think of offering the north to Prabhakaran for ten years to settle terrorism.  Fortunately Prabhakaran refused and blinded Chandrika in one eye. Ranil Wickramasinghe began peace negotiations with the terrorists, which only helped the terrorists become an important military force having acquired more arms from countries where the peace negotiations were held, according to the whim and fancy of Prabhakaran.

Ranil Wickramasinghe spells disaster, whether he was under JR Jayawardhane, R.Premadasa, Chandrika Kumaratunga or  now under Maitripala Sirisena.   Maitripala Sirisena has neither the intelligence nor the political maturity, nor has he a sufficient knowledge of English to understand what Ranil, Chandrika and Mangala are doing behind his back. Sirisena is naïve and he does not know that he is being manipulated by Ranil Wickramasinghe to keep the USA and Western Agenda.

Ranil Wickramasinghe is more cunning and capable of keeping Maithripala Sirisena  under his foot, allowing him freedom now and then to attend a school price giving or lay a foundation stone.  But even the second foundation stone laid after Mahinda Rajapakse  to declare open the same  Kandy Colombo high way was laid by Ranil and not Sirisena.

Ranil Wickramasinghe is a Christian.  Ranil is  a man with a Western education who wants to imitate his  Western masters  and win their good will.  He is not keen in developing Sri Lanka as a Sinhala Buddhist Nation.  It is often heard saying that Ranil is a gentleman.  But he did not show his quality of a gentleman in dealing with his President Chandrika nor with his infamous affair of Batalanda.  His great satisfaction is to get patted on his back by the Americans and the Western whites. He will do any thing to please them.

After the first Cholan  occupation of Sri Lanka , it was King Dutugemunu who came from the South to defend his country against the invader Elara in a just war and ended the 44 year old Cholan occupation and unite Sri Lanka. In the second occupation of Sri Lanka by Magha of Kalinga it was King Vijayabahu III who ended that disastrous period of Indian occupation and united Sri Lanka.

The third danger almost an occupation of the North of Sri Lanka came from the terrorist Prabhakaran, who terrorised the North and the rest of Sri Lanka for thirty long years. The worst terrorist ever perhaps worse than Kalinga Magah was eliminated and  Sri Lanka was Unified by the former President Mahinda Rajapaks who also came from the south.

To-day we are at cross roads. If the Sinhala are not vigilant and take seriously into consideration the Situation Sri Lanka is in today, we will be sealing the division of Sri Lanka.  That danger is more real today  than it was  six years ago.  There are pseudo Sinhala like Wijedasa Rajapakse who denies that Sri Lanka does not belong to the Sinhala. There is Eran Wickramaratne a Christian Priest now in civil and become a UNP Parliamentarian, who denies that there is no danger from the expatriate Tamils to Sri Lanka.

This evening watching a  Derana TV political debate( Aluth Parlimenthuwa), an expatriate Sri Lankan from London.showed photos showing the activities of the pro terrorist Tamils in London, and how they are supported by the government of UK allowing them to carry pro terrorist  advertisements citing Prabhakaran and Nelson Mandela as the greatest freedom fighters, on London Buses.

The debate  showed how the Sri Lanka Parliamentarians of the UNP and the JVP contesting the August 17 elections are completely ignorant of the dangers coming from the expatriate Tamils in UK, USA, Canada and Germany.  Not only are Tamil expatriates in these countries carry on a campaign  demanding political self determination for the Tamils in Sri Lanka but these expatriate Tamils have influenced the Governments of the countries in which they live to work against Sri Lanka.

Wijedasa Rajapakse , Eran Wickramaratne and Handunetti of JVP said it is fabricated , and the Sinhala expatriate who tried to explain that the Sri Lanka Politicians without considering their political affiliations should be aware of this and  take necessary action against the foreign governments from supporting a terrorist group banned in the countries, was laughed at and was asked by them to take action himself to speak to the expatriate Tamils and settle it.

UNP with these ignorance and refusal accept facts,  are a danger to Sri Lanka. UNP is ready even to divide Sri Lanka between the Tamils and Muslims according to their idea of reconciliation

Now it is up to every Sinhala whether Buddhist, Christian or Catholic  to be aware of what UNP wants to do NOT in the interest of Sri Lanka and its people but in their own  interest to capture political power. If the Sinhala are patriotic and cannot be bought by money or by  a drink they should vote against UNP and all those who contest under the Elephant Symbol.

 In Six months Ranil Wickramasinghe  and his cohorts contesting under the UNP Symbol of  Elelphant have done lot of damage to Sri Lanka taking it to the past rather than taking it forward. 

 Sinhala people have suffered, under Elaras,  Magahs, Prabhakarans, Jayawardhanas, Premadasas and now  it is  Ranil Wickramasinghe, and his cohorts like Madoluwawe Sobhita, Chandrika, Champika, Ratana who would certainly cause years of suffering to Sri Lanka and the Sinhala people,if they come into power.

 UNP will  divide the country and sell it to USA to set up an American Base in the North, and probably handover Mattala Air Port as well to USA.

 Sri Lanka Sinhalayo, wake up take note of the danger  looming ahead if you vote for Ranil Wickramasinghe and all those who contest in the Parliamentary election of the 17 August,2015 under the Elephant symbol.

 Do NOT vote for Ranil Wickramasinghe and his followers contesting under the Elephant Symbol.

 JVP is yet another danger.  They will divide the vote. They are a set of talkers without proposing any thing constructive.  They have caused enough trouble to Sri Lanka in the Past, in the Present, and will continue to do so in future.  A vote for JVP is a wasted vote.

 Vote to Get Back Mahinda Rajapakse, he is the only hope for a united Sri Lanka, stop a resurgence of terrorism, and set aside the danger coming from the West.

    Charles; Tamils are Indian Colonial Parasites. Sinhala Buddhists, Christians and Muslims should unite and fight against the Indian Imperialists.

  2. Lorenzo Says:

    Maithri-Mahinda is a much better combination at all levels than Maithri-Run-nil.

    JVP is a total UNP sellout. JVP posters are printed with UNP posters!! Paid by the same people!!

    People should REJECT BOTH UNP and JVP.

    Nearly 500 yrs of Colonisation have almost finished off the Sinhala/Buddhists of Lanka.

    It is through :


    * HUMAN NEEDS OF MARGINALISED SECTIONS OF SOCIETY that Lanka Sinhala/Buddhists are being depleted.

    Former President Mahinda Rajapakse was removed through those who went with cheat & deceit because he gave back a place in the country to the crumbling Sinhala/Buddhists.

    Charles I strongly disagree with you for bundling Late J.R. Jayawardena with the killers like PRAMADASE. Sit and meditate for a minute, you are good at this. If not for JR marathon effect where he got the 6th amendment (Lorenzo is still scared to mention 6th) to the constitution, SL would have not got MR elected and every month there will be a different government. remember MR said that if he did not have the executive powers he could have not won this war in 2009. This Amendment 6th still scare comment and article writers. It was a all party effort. There is nothing called UNP, JVP, SLFP, MEP, today, Since you are in SL walk around and speak to 4 wheel drivers etc. Please leave JR out of it. We need learn to respect people who kicked India on their teeth. JR did this with Rajiv Gandhi. Please go through historical records.

    Hi Fran: Colonization of Ceylon started with the arrival of Indian colonial parasites from 1792. That is the real start of the end of Sinhalese. This has happened in Mauritius and Guyana.

    Susantha says it well about JR. JR was a stooge of USA like his nephew Ranil. But when India brazenly trespassed into Sri Lanka air space and demanded that 13 A be entered into Sri Lanka Constitution, he gave in . It is causing us all the problems today. Perhaps if it had been Mahinda R he would have protested and atleast bargained without inserting that disastrous 13 Amendment.

    When JR needed the help of America to intervene against India, America dropped him. It is a good lesson to Ranil – America will not give aid to Sri Lanka without conditions. China helped us but never interfered into internal affairs of Sri Lanka like America. JR was not a popular political leader. Mrs; Bandaranayake compared to him was a far greater politicians who touched the hearts of the people.

    Dear Charles,

    You say “It is a good lesson to Ranil – America will not give aid to Sri Lanka without conditions. “

    Yes, indeed … it would be a “good lesson” …. if Ruinous Ranil had an ounce of ALLEGIANCE to the Buddhists and the Sinhala people of his native land. But HE does not!

    This is the Don Juan Dharmapala OF OUR TIME …. he will GLADLY transfer Sri Lanka’s assets and sovereignty to ANYONE, including Sri Lanka’s AVOWED ENEMIES …. as long as he can remain Executive Prime Minister and DOLE OUT GOODIES to his own narrow religious community.

    NO, There are NO GOOD LESSONS (from our POV) that Ruinous Ranil will EVER LEARN; he has NO MOTIVATION to do so against what he views are his REAL interests! He is NOT TRYING represent you and me, but THEM!

    Indian PM urged to ensure decentralization of power in Sri Lanka for Tamils to realize their aspirations

    Aug 08, Chennai: The Indian government is urged to take all possible steps to ensure that the process of democratic decentralization is expedited in Sri Lanka so that the Tamils can realize their aspiration of Tamil Eelam.

    In a memorandum submitted to the Prime Minister of India Narendra, Modi on Friday, the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu J. Jayalalithaa said India has a commitment to protect the “life and liberties” of the Tamils in Sri Lanka.

    “I strongly urge the Government of India to take all possible steps to ensure that the process of democratic decentralization, which is integral to the survival of the Tamils in Sri Lanka, is expedited,” Jayalalithaa noted in her memorandum .

    She said the Tamils’ distinct identity and cultural presence in Sri Lanka, particularly in the Northern and Eastern regions, was the guiding principle behind the Indo Sri Lankan accord that led to 13th Amendment to the Sri Lankan Constitution.

    “The process of securing the right to self-determination, through the devolvement of democratic decentralization by the 13th Amendment to the Constitution of Sri Lanka, should be the spring board for Sri Lankan Tamils to eventually realize the aspiration of Tamil Eelam,” the Chief Minister said.

    According to the Chief Minister the decentralization of power should eventually lead to the Sri Lankan Tamils realizing their legitimate aspirations.

    “I hope that the Government of India, as a leader in the region and as a champion of human rights and democracy, will decisively take a bold stand in support of the much discriminated against and long suffering Tamil minorities in Sri Lanka,” Jayalalithaa said.

    The Chief Minister also urged the Indian government to take necessary measures to bring to book those in Sri Lanka who had perpetrated the genocide on innocent Tamils in Sri Lanka.

    “Government of India should take the initiative in this regard in appropriate international fora like the United Nations Human Rights Council,” she suggested.

  15. Lorenzo Says:


    This election is all about making MR the next PM. It is NOT about Maru Sira who will remain president until 2020.

    We have to make this very clear.

    MR is NOT a threat to Maru Sira who can ENJOY his top job. Just appoint MR as the PM.

  16. Kumari Says:

    Our first step is to give a landslide victory to Mahinda. I have faith that he will do the needful by the majority community. His new constitution in six months will get rid of most or all of the ills of the current one. He is the only proven leader this country has, also the only trust worthy. Did you watch his interview on Hiru TV? He spoke like a true leader, he understands the needs of the people, he has dependable, capable family members and an experienced set of MPs. Ranil and Anura Kumara could not prove any of the allegations, they were talking for years and we have to assume that Mahinda’s government (at least the majority) was not corrupt.

  17. Ananda-USA Says:


    Yes, indeed …. Our first step is to give a landslide victory to Mahinda … and everything else in our hopes and dreams for our Motherland will then be enabled. Without Mahinda, they will be stillborn!

    Yes, I too watched Mahinda’s Hiru TV video, and I thought it was excellent! How could, I thought, …. any PATRIOTIC Sri Lankan not believe in the quality and strength of this man and support him to the HILT?.

    Nations are rarely endowed with the GIFT of such a great leader … yet, why do we Sri Lankans not appreciate AS ONE this GIFT to us from the Hatarawaran Guardian Dieties of Mother Lanka?

    At one point, the INTERVIEWER asked what GUARANTEE do you give that you will do what you say, to which Mahinda gave the best answer possible … “My record of accomplishment and delivery in the last 10 years is the GUARANTEE of future performance” … an answer that NO OTHER LEADER of modern Sri Lanka, living or dead, could give! Beautiful!!

    Jayawewa, Mahinda Rajapaksa janadhipathi thumani!, JAYAWEWA!
