A country has every right to protect its history & heritage. A country has every right to react to the sinister plans taking place to create an artificial history by removing a history that is over 2600 years old. A country has every right to protect the many plots and plans now being put in place to create a pseudo national identity in keeping with those that fund initiatives whereby the main goal is to remove the sacred place held by Buddhism and the role Buddhism has placed in shaping the nation’s identity and the culture and values of people. How right is it and who has the right to decide what gets removed and doesn’t and what new identity and history everyone has to accept. Can Governments and their cronies through Ministries be given rights to experiment with history and plug in their notions and ideologies & do they expect everyone to accept these?

For people to realize what is taking place they need to be aware of the strategies and methodologies used in the past and compare them with what is taking place in the present. It only then that people will realize the dangers and what is at stake.

Presently a wave of actions is taking place which cannot be ignored. Sealing of temple tills, attempts to remove elephants from Buddhist cultural events like the perahera, while azan’s are allowed temple pirith is banned, only Buddhist monks are arrested while Church priests who had openly sided with LTTE terrorists get away, state funds to pirivenas are stopped, controversial Buddhist monks are tapped to bring disrepute to Buddhism/Buddhists, Govt is silent over attacks, destruction and theft of Buddhist artefacts, state funds to the preservation of Buddhist archaeological sites are being reduced, actions are not taken against officials who are being bought over to compromise Buddhist heritage sites, incursions on Buddhist heritage sites are ignored, history is being removed from school syllabus, Buddhist daham pasal teachers are being forced to teach merits of other religions during Buddhist classes, academics are being rewarded to re-write false history and projecting a step-motherly version to the place held by Buddhism, bizarre notion of shared values is being rolled out trying to confuse young minds and distance Buddhist children from their religion and cultural background….all these and more are taking place with a long term plan and are in keeping with a historical objective.

When European Christian colonial rulers arrived their objective was to take over countries by force, plunder their resources/wealth, declare these new territories as Christian and forcibly convert the natives and increase their flock. The missionaries became the brainwashers and intelligence gatherers just like the CIA & NGOs of present times.

Part and parcel of that methodology was to win over natives, give them honorary titles and place them above the rest and get them to do the dirty work on behalf of the European colonials. Notice how titles are continuing to be bestowed upon people who still work on behalf of Western agenda! The methods have changed and become more sophisticated but the objective remains the same. It is our duty to realize what these goals are and counter them.

The natives were clueless to handle the European Christian explorers. If natives had no inkling of the methods used for subjugating them are we to play ignorant and ignore the same strategies being applied packaged differently?

Formerly missionaries approached the chief humbly and asked a small piece of land to set up their station. The station soon became a ‘trader’ resulting in an ‘agreement’ on the guise of ‘friend and protector’ of the chief but it meant the ‘foreigner’ had rights to take land, interfere in the lives of the people and with time split them and generate animosity among them. This became the famous ‘divide & rule’. Soon the ‘friend & protector’ wants to become bigger than the Chief and decides to take lands, use natives, abuse natives and even murder natives that didn’t tow the line.  If explorers worked in conjunction with the Christian/Catholic missionaries – isn’t what the Western governments & their faith-based NGO agencies doing the same presently?

To understand the psyche of the Western European rulers and their mission which has not changed one has to study the speech delivered by King Leopold II to the Missionaries sent to Congo in 1883. The colonial and neocolonial agendas are the same in substance.

Some excerpts from this speech

The main goal of your mission in the Congo is not to teach the Negro the knowledge of God, ….. you will interpret the gospel in a way to protect and serve the interest of Belgium”

Your knowledge of the scriptures will help us to use special text that recommended the fidels to love poverty such as….Blessed are the poor, for theirs is the Kingdom…… You will do all that you can to cause the Negro to fear being rich in order that they may go to heaven.

From time to time…… keep them in fear that you will use violence

You will take them away from anything or act that procures them with the courage to confront us.”

Your action will be essentially on the younger people that might not rebel….. the child should learn to obey what the missionary teaches him because he is the father of his soul. We must force them into submission and obedience.”

Teach the Gospel to the Negroes in an African style, in order that they are kept submissive to the White colonist. They would not rebel against the injustice done to them by the colonist.”

Avoid, by all means, the Blacks becoming rich.”

Make pay tithes each Sunday for church. Utilize this money, that is intended for the poor, for our own business investments.”

Institute a system of confession which will make you good detectives in order to denounce/put down every Black which has a spirit of rebellion against the system.”

Teach the Negroes that their statues, idols, are works of the devil, confiscate them and fill our museums with them. Teach the Negro to forget about their heroes in order to worship and give praise to ours.”

Don’t give a seat to a Negro when they come to see you, at the most just give him a cigarette.”

Don’t invite him to break bread with you, even if he gave you a chicken every time you went to see him.”

My dear compatriots; if you apply to the letter all this, the interest of Belgium in the Congo will be protected for many centuries. I thank you.

King Leopold II

(Translated from French by Prince Asiel Center for International Studies, USA)


The text is certainly shocking. But it is very much consistent with orders given by all other colonial rulers/administrators and post-colonial former colonies cannot forget these orders because they are continuing in the vision and mission of the neocolonial agencies now operating world over.

This is what Dr. Philip, Superintendent of the London Missionary Society wrote in The Preface to his Researches in South Africa” in 19th century.

” ‘While our missionaries are everywhere scattering the seeds of civilization . . . they are extending British interests, British influences and the British Empire. . . . Wherever the missionary places his standard among a savage tribe, their prejudices against the colonial government give way; their dependence upon the colony is increased by the creation of artificial wants”.  

European explorers like Vasco da Gama, David Livingston, Cecil Rhodes and the many Christian missionaries were ONLY following the religious texts.

Bible New Testament St Mark 16 Verse 5 Go ye to the entire world, baptizing all men in the name of Jesus Christ”.

A chaplain attached to the British East India Company is quoted by Norman Hetherington as saying

We’ve annihilated the political importance of the natives, stripped them off their power, laid them prostrate without giving them anything in return”.

The envoys deployed in Third World nations follow the same objectives. The British High Commissioner to Sri Lanka is now projecting a ‘shared history’ – the gameplan is obviously to distort history and whitewash the blood soaked hands of colonial rulers from the history books wherein the younger generation would not be aware of the crimes committed by European rulers.

Histories of former colonies cannot be re-written by colonial rulers that have yet to account for their crimes & sins. Their acolytes who are rewarded by titles and tasked to re-write the history on behalf of these former colonial rulers cannot be allowed as well.

The pattern of how the Western rulers ruled directly and through their subservient local traitors is a replica of what is today taking place in front of our very eyes. To understand the gravity of this, people must know and comprehend the damage that Europeans & even Islamic invaders committed to the natives of Asia, Africa and other parts of the world where lands and territories were forcibly taken and people were subjugated.

No modern nomenclature or slogans like ‘let us forgive and forget’ can wipe out that horrendous and murderous past and the only way people can prepare and counter the same objectives under more sophisticated onslaughts is to be aware of the patterns & players involved.

    Sri lanka is an Indian colony. Indian High Commissionr is the governor for Sri lanka. An Indian Tamil runs the reconciliation, language policy and sinhala-buddhist destruction and disintegration.

  2. Dilrook Says:

    Strangely Wijedasa Rajapaksa (minister of Buddha Sasana) shows reasonableness on another front. He is also the minister of justice and under his term, a large number of Buddhist monks were prosecuted and many new restrictions were imposed on Buddhists. It is difficult to get one’s head around what goes on. He is also a strong supporter of the new constitution which demotes Buddhism and turns the nation more federal. He seems to have bought the support of the JO so the JO will not oppose his moves in return for safety of own members’ and their family members.

    I urge readers to look at this duplicity and contradiction.

    Has the place of Buddhism been bargained out between decision makers and by fooling the people, again? The only way to defraud the majority is to fool them or to buy their leaders. Confronting them rarely works.

  3. Ancient Sinhalaya Says:

    Traitor chief die hard catholic token Buddhist Bay Gal Karaya Mega Thief Batalande Wadakaya pol pot r@nil
    wickramaSinhalakiller is running Sri Lanka today and he will do his utmost to deliver the killer blow to destroy
    Buddhism. This wolf in sheep’s clothing with his religion of convenience has done/doing enormous damage to Sri
    Lanka, Buddhism and the Sinhalese race to please his C brigade. This is why you see so many Buddhist monks
    imprisoned, Buddhism going out of new constitution, encouraging to destroy Buddhism in the north and east by
    traitor mussies and tamils, etc. etc. Still Sinhala modayas revere the monster. They even celebrated the monster’s
    40-year destruction spree. Is there any wonder these two-legged creatures are easily duped?

    What this Batalande Wadakaya don’t understand is the traitor cancer is destroying the only true religion, Buddhism, in the world. Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution destroyed the creator god myth. So the traitor alugosuwa (to Sinhalese only) not going to be a two legged creature in his next life. Most probably a hyena!

  4. Charles Says:

    They should not have given this Ministry to Mano Ganeshan,as much as they should not have madeSampanthan the Leader of Opposition.

  5. Senerath Says:

    I remember very clearly Wijedasa said “Sri lanka is not a Sinhala Buddhist country” at a press conference. This was during 100 day commedy. After that he was given “Buddha sasana ” ministry. What a joke that was ?
    He appears to be against China and pro India. All signs of a RAW agent.
    If he joins JO , surely JO has been bought by India.

  6. SA Kumar Says:

    They should not have given this Ministry to Mano Ganeshan,as much as they should not have madeSampanthan the Leader of Opposition.- Who is They ??? People of Mother Lankan ?
    Now you know Why we call you mod…..

  7. NeelaMahaYoda Says:


    If a large number of Buddhist monks were prosecuted, minister of justice has no control over it. It is up to the police to prosecute them. You have not really appreciated the Minister Wijedasa Rajapaksa’s main argument that politicians should not be interfered in court cases influencing Judges.

  8. Dilrook Says:


    No one should interfere in court cases but that is not what happened in the past 2 years. Buddhist monks were selectively targeted by this government. The police function ends when the AG Department takes over. Cases against Buddhist monks and Buddhists in general seem to have accelerated while others go slow. Many cases involving Tamils and Muslims ended with the police reporting reaching the AG department. Police did arrest the woman who vandalised a historic monument in Sigiriya, men who attacked Sinhala students in Jaffna University, those who caused vandalism to Buddhist shrines in the east and Colombo but the AG department failed to continue from there!

    Then there is the harassment of war heroes. Police didn’t initiate these on own accord. Police was instructed to do so. An extremely large number of them (in comparison) was harassed and still in custody.

    Office of Missing Persons bill was drafted, changed and passed by institutions under Justice Ministry. A nice distraction was entertained when he entered into an argument against a UNHRC official despite passing the OMP Act.

    I must add he has been a reasonable and bold politician on another level. He is far better than both previous Buddha Sasana and Justice ministers. However, these developments cannot be ignored.


    You are correct. When the Buddha Sasana and Justice minister says Sri Lanka is not a Sinhala Buddhist country, it means much more than the legal implications. Modi’s visit to put in place a framework for subsequent colonization of the island was facilitated by the Buddha Sasana ministry under the cover of Wesak celebrations.

    But his biggest project is the secular and openly federal constitution. All three Chief Prelates stated Sri Lanka needs no new constitution but the process continues. It is a very clever plan by this regime to combine Buddha Sasana and Justice ministries to push the secular constitution. If Buddhists have a problem with that they still have to go to the same ministry!

  9. Fran Diaz Says:

    Loads of confusion have been created over various issues !

    Why ?

    * To ‘Crash & Sell’ Lanka (Ranil in charge) ?
    * To ‘Divide & Rule’ Lanka’ (via the New Constitution) ?

    Both the above UNPATRIOTC programs are unlawful and unconstitutional !!
    The vast numbers of People of Lanka do NOT APPROVE !

    Is this Democracy ? NO !

  10. Fran Diaz Says:

    The 13-A is an ILLEGAL and hastily borrowed Plan from INDIA, imposed by INDIA on the JRJ govt in 1987 as Lanka was too pro-west for INDIA’s liking at that time.

    The relatively huge area in INDIA can carry the areas divided there by LANGUAGE.
    Thus, Tamil Nadu is TAMIL by LANGUAGE.
    Tamil Nadu has some 15 MILLION Tamil DALITS. It says so in their birthcertificates.
    INDIA does their Census through a Caste base.
    The CASTE SYSTEM is over 3,000 yrs old.
    Any INDIA style Federal State for Tamils in Lanka will come under Tamil Nadu/INDIA.
    The CASTE SYSTEM will be re-instated in any Federal State for Tamils in Sri Lanka.
    Do Tamils of Lanka want that ?

    This type of division by LANGUAGE in Sri Lanka will not work as Lanka is a relatively small area.

    Also, note that there are no Federal states within INDIA, not a single one !
    There can be NO Federal states within relatively tiny Sri Lanka.

    True Democracy must come to Lanka.
    Otherwise, governance in Lanka is a Farce, as Yahap govt is right now.

    The ILLEGAL 13-A (imposed under Duress, therefore ILLEGAL) MUST be REMOVED !!

  11. Fran Diaz Says:

    Diminishing Buddhism, Tamil Separatism etc are being used as Tools of Distraction to gain the real goal for Agent Ranil-Baba led UNP leading Yahap Agents for “foreign services” :

    Their goal is (back to square one !) :

    * “Crash & Sell” Lanka
    * “Divide & Rule” Lanka
