It is Tamils & Muslims who must CHANGE now
Posted on November 18th, 2019

When SLPP began its campaign – Gotabaya Rajapakse’s message was clear – One Nation – One Law. It was an inclusive motto. There was no segregation. There was no discrimination. It was something simple for all to relate to.

The Opposite Camp on the other hand were with a bunch of separatists-fundamentalists, politicians and political parties we thought everyone was fed up with.

We thought people would not listen to them for Tamils & Muslims themselves publicly denounced their leaders.

So our guess was that they would give GR a CHANCE because he was only speaking of a Vision & Policy.

When his opponents on top of their stages were slinging mud, threatening to hang the Rajapakse’s from windows, speaking in abusive and derogatory terms, GR and his team only spoke about the future plans and policy.

The GR Team had minority representatives who also appealed to give GR a chance. They campaigned among their people to appeal to them to change their thinking. They were also sure that their people would give GR a chance. When people spoke about development, cleanliness and good management – GR was the only person who came to mind who had proven via actions what people claimed to want. But, were these sincere thoughts or were they just hiding what they felt?

Everyone was optimistic that they would be thinking of the Future & not the Past.

The results have not really surprised us because if our established conclusion of minority thinking was correct that was how they would have voted whatever laurels of peace we offered but our hearts wanted to prove us wrong but eventually the minority vote result proved otherwise. It was virtually identical to how they voted in January and August 2015. What is it that the majority have done wrong to them? What is it that they want? What is it that they don’t have that the poor rural Sinhala voters enjoy?

Now, as damage control, the guilt is being hidden by quickly attempting to transfer blame on the majority. It has always been to point at the majority and blame them for all ills. The fact that an opportunity for them to be inclusive was rejected by them with no valid reasons is being quickly swept under the carpet and there are some trying to showcase that they need to be more ‘reconciliation’. It takes two to tango. Sinhalese have done their part. What have the minorities done in return?

In the poorest of villages – where people suffer to have a meal a day, the Sinhalese went and voted realizing that national security & protecting Sri Lanka required their voice and vote. They knew this election was far more than just bringing Gotabaya Rajapakse to power. If these people could go & vote without complaining about what they don’t have – we see no basis for complaints by others.

However a handful of Tamils & Muslims did vote for GR – they campaigned much for him too…

However, we do realize that separatist and fundamentalist thinking elders & their politicians are doing great injustice to their children, the future of Sri Lanka by dragging them to continue the hatred and vengeance that they live with day in and day out.

This is not good for the Youth or the Future. Therefore, we certainly need to integrate all Youth and make them stakeholders for the future. These programs will certainly be rolled out and we hope these separatist and fundamentalist elders will leave the Youth alone to decide for themselves instead of dragging them to live with hate and vengeance.

Of course, we appeal to the elders to rethink how they have voted and be the FIRST to reach out to integrate as that is where the Change should start. Will they is left for them to think about.

Demands without Duty is unacceptable

Reconciliation without Reciprocity is unacceptable too.

Nothing works only on paper – these terms imported from West are just words used to diplomatically & politically exert pressures on nations. The countries preaching the terms do not practice a word they promote and force upon nations to enforce. Now they are tying aid and grants to such terms.

All citizens must learn to love the Nation & be proud of the Nation & acknowledge its proud history & heritage and not try to infuse false history & change it for political advantage.

Minorities in particular have always found it easier to complain of what they have not got or what the majority has not done for them but what have the minorities done in return to make such demands?

Remember – LTTE was brutalizing both Tamils & Muslims. Areas of North & East were not developed for 30 years not because the government did not want to but because the LTTE was in control over these areas. However, immediately after eliminating the LTTE, the GOSL embarked upon development programs that included providing electricity to areas that were living in darkness. The then govt did much to uplift the lives of these people.

Why should they still shower hatred even after giving them what LTTE did not? Can someone please answer this? Didn’t the then govt remove the fear of living they experienced under LTTE? Could they not freely travel to any part of Sri Lanka because LTTE was no more? Have they forgotten how life was before LTTE was eliminated and how life change after LTTE was no more?

From all of the minority parties and minority political leaders we like to ask – what have your party done for the betterment of the country & the citizens not only for your people? Enjoying tax payers money (70% of which is contributed by the majority) – what have minorities returned to the Nation?

Its time everyone started doing a SERVICE TO THE NATION without ONLY COMPLAINING ABOUT what the NATION hasn’t given them….

    I agree with Shenali!

    With all that the previous Rajapaksa Regime did to reconcile and economically uplift the Tamils and the Muslims after the TOTAL DEFEAT of the Tamil Tigers and the end of the Eelam war, all they gained was UNREMITTING HOSTILITY to the Sinhala people.

    This was CLEARLY EVIDENT not only in the election campaign, but also in the VOTING PATTERNS of the Presidential Election of 2019.

    The North and East VOTED ENMASSE for Sajith Premadasa, who not only DID NOT REJECT (and may have secretly accepted) the 13 SEPARATIST demands of the Tamil National Alliance for what amounts to SECESSION from UNITARY Sri Lanka, that went well beyond the DEMANDS of the UNLAMENTED LATE Sun God, Velupillai Prabhakaran!

    We recall that Gotabhaya and the Pohottuwa TOTALLY REJECTED these demands, as they should have as leaders who stand for an undivided unitary Sri Lanka, the motherland of ALL OF ITS Native Citizens to share equally as a WHOLE ,and not as separate communities confined to live in communal Bantustans permanently warring against each other!

    In fact, the communal minded Sumanthiran of the TNA went so far as to URGE the Tamil Voters to DEFEAT the Sinhalese by VOTING for Sajith Premadasa! As the voting results show, this the the Tamils of the North did, almost unanimously!

    Communal Muslim leaders, many accused of aiding and abetting communal Muslim separatists, and the Easter bombing terrorists, joined this drive to VOTE WHOLLY FOR Sajith Premadasa AGAINST Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, as a means of DEFEATING the Sinhala people! As the voting results show, this the Muslims of the East also did, almost unanimously!

    By the Blessing of the Noble Triple Gem, this time around, the Sinhala people, both Buddhist and Christian, stood as one, and VOTED for Gotabhaya, almost unanimously!

    There is more INTEGRATION & CONSOLIDATION of the Sinhala VOTERS that needs to be done in the future to FORM an UNASSAILABLE MAJORITY DESHAPREMI VOTER BASE!

    Much of the CREDIT for this coming together of the Sinhala people in this Presidential Election must go primarily to the Buddhist clergy who rallied around Gotabhaya Rajapaksa. Toma smaller, but important degree, the credit goes to the Christian clergy who in the wake of the Easter bombings, opted to join hands with the Buddhist community their common interests and revive their centuries old shared relationships! I say to my Christian Bretheren…. WELCOME HOME …. where you belong by kinship and by tradition!

    NEVER AGAIN must the Sinhala Community allow itself to be DIVIDED and RULED PIECEMEAL by its enemies! Let us REMEMBER this day as a CLASSIC DEMONSTRATION of how UNITY can TRIUMPH over the WORST ADVERSITY in our Common Shared Interest as a people!

    I totally agree with Shenali…

    Time has come for all Sinhalese to realise that we (the majority), has been taken for granted for decades in order to satisfy the demands of the minorities, who cunningly believed that without their support no Sinhala party can come to power. All Sinhala political parties believed it and caved in, making Tamil and Muslim politicians the king makers.

    I am so glad that the Sinhalese voters proved them wrong this time by electing a true patriotic leader with a large majority, breaking all the myths that without minority support no Sinhalese leader could win. This fact alone is a major achievement by the Sinhalese.

    Unfortunately, Tamil and Muslim population have been brainwashed for generations by their self-serving, racist political leaders with tribal mentality. They told Tamil and Muslim people the only way they can get what they want is to blame Sinhalese majority for all their troubles, most of which was created by themselves to begin with. Such as Tamil terrorism, and mindless Jihadi doctrine of mass destruction and killing of infidels. Many of the Sinhala politicians are to be blamed as well for pitting majority against the minorities just for pure, selfish, political gains.

    However, the past is past and the days of blackmailing by the minority politicians are over. They are not in a position to make outrageous, unreasonable demands such as devolution of power with their own police forces and administrative services, which eventually will lead to balkanizing the country.

    Sooner they realise the fact that the majority Sinhalese do not need the minority support anymore to govern the country, it would be better for them as well.

    It is also time for them to realise that their tribal mentality that brought them so much misery in the past is no longer help their next generation to lead a prosperous and a peaceful life, until they accept the reality that there is only one country, and one law for all the citizens, regardless of their ethnicity, religion, and cultural differences.

    The sooner they understand the fact that we all are Sri Lankans regardless of our many differences, sooner we can live and prosper together in a land that belongs to all of us.

    Couldn’t agree with you more SW. All these treacheries from the two foreigner groups while enjoying more
    benefits than the Sinhalese and living all over the country comfortably, dictating where the native Sinhalese
    should live, how we should sing our national anthem, how we display our name board etc. etc. Can you imagine
    how selfish, how treacherous these downright traitors are?

    All these coming from anti Sinhalese, anti Buddhist, anti Sri Lanka, minority worshiping, Mother Lanka dismembering
    treacherous GooandPee aka UNPatriotic_rats. Since traitor alugosuwas (to Sinhalese Buddhists only) thambi
    mudiyanselage jr@, lk porisada R@, die hard catholic token Buddhist Batalande wa(n)dakaya Pol Pot r@ni_leech
    wickrama Sinhala killer have been promoting traitor tamils and mussies while putting down Sinhalese at every
    opportunity. The traitor GooandPee is for a tamil drealam and mussiesthan. That clearly showed in the elections.
    Sad thing is, still some Sinhala dhrohiyas (sama HARAK) siding with these murderous (Sinhalese Buddhists only),
    Mother Lanka dismembering GooandPee thieves. These GooandPee supporting Sinhalese cannot be Sinhalese.

    Apart from the tamil drealam, mussie mussisthan Nuwara Eliya (for a greater drealam) voted for GooandPee.
    Traitor alugosuwa thambi mudiyanselage jr@ gave citizenship to 650,000+ tamils who were prepared to go to tn under patriotic Sirima-Shasthri Pact in the 60s. Then Sirima lost the elections (typical Sinhalese treachery
    combined with traitor tamils, mussies and catholics) and thambi mudiyanselage jr@ scrapped the pact and today those up country tamils must be numbering millions! That showed in the elections.

    Jaathidhrohee vermins’ party aka terras brutally massacred: 60,000+, almost all Buddhists
    Catholic tigers of tamil drealam war dragged on sacrificed: 100,000+, mainly Buddhists
    Die hard catholic token Buddhist r@ni_leech gave 1/2 the country to its catholic buddy barrel man mala paharan
    Traitor alugosuwa lk porisada R@ sent 600+ policemen to catholic tigers of tamil drealam
    it gave weapons to kill our soldiers
    lowered the % for mp to get in to thieves den which saw it galored with mussie, who then landed powerful
    ministries and promoted mussie baby machines to produce votes
    R@ni_leech sending Millennium City intelligent officers to catholic tigers of tamil drealam bullet
    R@ni_leech break into CB with its catholic buddy maha horandran and getting away with Rs 5585 billions
    Imprisoning Buddhist monks while releasing terras and pay compensations to them for killing Sinhalese
    Selling national assets at knock down prices and pocketing most of it
    Promising cars, free wifi etc. etc. etc the traitor thieves robbed the country left, right and centre.
    GooandPee treachery list goes on and on.

    These traitor thieves should be hung starting from mass murderer, mega thief r@ni_leech to teach a lesson to
    future traitors!
