A former Sri Lankan sailor, who had attacked visiting Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi with a rifle butt in 1987, was today accused by the government of making an astrological prediction about the death of President Maithripala Sirisena by January 26 next year.

Nimal Bopage, Secretary to the Ministry of Media and Parliamentary Affairs, said he had lodged a complaint with the police for an investigation.

He said Vijitha Rohana Wijemuni, who was jailed for attacking Gandhi, had made an astrological prediction on Facebook about the death of Sirisena.

“This man claims to be an astrologer and he is predicting that the president will be killed by January 26,” Bopage told reporters here.

“We see a conspiracy behind this and have asked the police to investigate because we suspect this to be part of a wider plot to assassinate the president,” he said.

“We had previously complained to cyber crime agencies on this but that was of no avail,” he said.

Wijemuni was part of a naval guard of honour in July, 1987 when Gandhi was visiting Colombo to sign the Indo-Lanka Peace Accord which led to the Indian Peace Keeping Force being stationed in Sri Lanka’s north and east provinces as part of India’s efforts to mediate in Sri Lanka’s separatist civil war at the time.

As Gandhi walked past inspecting the guard of honour, Wijemuni raised his rifle and attempted to attack the then prime minister who narrowly escaped.

Wijemuni was court-martialled and after his jail term, became an astrologer.

Here is the video clip of him attacking the then PM, Rajiv Gandhi:

    If Bopage doesn’t agree with Wijemuni go to an Indian or a Malayalam guy for a second opinion.

    Lame duck President Obama should DELIST and LEGALIZE the Islamic-State, Al-Quaida, Al-Nusra, Hamas, Hezbollah and the Taliban at the same time he DELISTS the LTTE!


    Sri Lankan LIVES are as VALUABLE to us SRi Lankans as American LIVES are to the Americans!

    Clearly, the European Union does not think Sri Lankan lives matter!

    Therefore, should we Sri Lankans consider the lives of residents in the European Union to matter?
    I would say NO, NO, and NO!

    Tamil diaspora group in U.S. urges Obama to delist LTTE
    Wed, Dec 21, 2016, 07:13 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

    Dec 21, Washington, DC: A Tamil diaspora group in the United States has urged the outgoing U.S. President Barack Obama to delist the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam from the U.S. Terrorist Organizations list.

    A spokesman for Tamils for Obama said many Tamils are suffering from the listing of Tamil Tigers as it creates pain for many US Tamils when they travel to abroad and when they return to US.

    “They have to go through many hours of interrogation. Some US Tamils have asked us to convince President Obama to help us by removing Tamil Tigers from the list,” the spokesman said.

    “Obama can give Tamils a little relief by de-listing the Tamil Tiger during this Christmas and giving season.”

    The group said there is no reason to keep the LTTE on the list since the Tamil Tigers were defunct and no more of them with no Tiger activities being reported for the last seven years

    They said it was a “mistake” by the Bush administration to support the “Sri Lankan genocidal war against the innocent Tamils.”

    Tamil spokesman continued that the “European Union’s top court took a step on September 2016, towards confirming the removal of the Tamil Tigers from an EU terrorism blacklist, despite protestations from the Sri Lankan government. ”

    The European Union delisted the Tigers in 2006.

    Apart from the U.S. and the EU, the LTTE is proscribed as a terrorist organization in India, Canada, the UK and Sri Lanka.

    I ADMIRE this sailor because he VOTED in no uncertain manner as a Sri Lankan citizen with the butt-end of his rifle, ready to be shot down!

    The OVERREACTION by the Sirisena camp about his FOOLISH Astrological BABBLING s indicative of the PANIC that is setting in the minds of the Yamapalanaya leaders!

    They FEAR have come to their OWN PEOPLE more than the enemy EELAMISTS they have now befriended.

    That is the INEVITABLE FATE OF TRAITORS … lack of a safe refuge in their own Motherland!

  4. Ananda-USA Says:

    Oops! Imeant to say ….

    They have come toFEAR their OWN PEOPLE more than the enemy EELAMISTS they have now befriended.

    Jumpy, just like the American Groundhog, fleeing at the sight of his own shadow! BOOO……

    “We see a conspiracy behind this and have asked the police to investigate because we suspect this to be part of a wider plot to assassinate the president,”

    Well well.. It looks like the stars and planets are behind the conspiracy!!!

    Then don’t shoot the messenger. He is the one who predicted the winning of My3

    Ask Modi and Hilary / Robert Blake / Obama to shoot a rocket full of lies and shit to these stars and planets.

  6. Lorenzo Says:


    This man should be FREE to express his opinion.

  7. Kumari Says:

    Ananda, Obama is trying to do what would have been done by Hillary if she got elected. He lifted some arms embargo (under article / clause 30 of Presidential Powers) to supply arms to rebels fighting for the NWO. This is how Al-Nusra / Al-Quida in Syria tried to recapture Palmyra. Failing all that Americans (as per Turkish intelligence) were behind gunning down of Russian Ambassador in Ankara.

    Why Bopage and the rest of the clan are so worried about Sirisena’s life is because the new constitution and the ETCA hasn’t yet gone through our parliament. With Sirisena’s death SLFP becomes the official opposition and do the job they were set up to do (i.e. protect the country). ROW and CIA hasn’t yet got all what they planned through Sirisena. If they had, by now Sirisena is lying next to Sobitha.

  8. NAK Says:

    Sirisena has the opportunity to make Vijith Rohana’s predictions false,at least part of it ,by sacking Ranil from premiership.
    If Ranil is sacked from his job second part of Vijith’s prediction,which is that Ranil will become the President, becomes false and may be because of that the first part too may become false!

  9. Fran Diaz Says:

    Killing Sinhala/Buddhist leaders will not solve the Tamil CASTE problem, going on in Tamil Nadu for over 3,000 yrs.
    Neither will any Tamil Eelam in Lanka solve the CASTE problems of Tamil Nadu, INDIA.

    Tamils of Lanka have ALL the Rights that Others of Lanka have.

    Be sane. Be rational. Solve all problems together !
    There is Strength in UNITY !
