Dear Mr. Velan Swamigal:

I am not sure as to what studies you did and completed at Katubedde. However, one thing I am sure of is that most violent youngsters originated from Katubedde, which in those days (60s), not now. JVP took up arms and they grew up in Katubedde. Please do not tarnish the image of Katubedde as I am also from Katubede lectured by superior lecturers like TOP Fernando, PAD Silve etc.

You have named yourself Swamigal and found the cheapest path to popularity through politics. Some politicians recommend that you are fit for the Chief Minister position for the NPC. Sorry to state this, but NPC is not a Siva or Murugan temple.

Quote The Sunday Times 18-04-2021: Other parties rejected the idea of a Hindu priest, and stressed that the individual should be fit to hold the office with the necessary administrative and political skills, unlike the previous Chief Minister. Hearing about the pick of the former CM, a local market trader was heard saying it was fortunate that another convicted, controversial self-styled godman” Premananda was no longer alive since he also might have been named as a candidate. After all, the trader noted it was the same retired Supreme Court Justice who wrote to Indian Premier Narendra Modi in 2015 seeking the release of four convicts of an infamous case of rape and murder, popularly called the Premananda case in Tamil Nadu.

My dear Velan; I do not know your true name, however, you are clueless and the person who recommends you also may be clueless. (நெற்றியில் பட்டை அடித்தால் மட்டும் போதாது, புத்தியும் வேண்டும்)

Are you a member of the RSS, which is a right-wing Hindu nationalist, paramilitary, volunteer, and allegedly militant organization in India?

My dear Velan: You are not fit for politics. However, just preach Hindu stuff to illiterate people.

According to your behaviour, I see no difference between you and Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara Thero of the Bodu Bala Sena.

Why do Tamil extremists protest against Gnana Sara Thero and other Buddhist Monks when they come into the field?

I read Thiruvilaiyadal Puranam in the 50s. It’s a fictitious story to brainwash students. I believe in Physics, Electromagnetic fields and Photons. Why are Tamils interested in building temples and not factories? Because they have no perception. It’s the 21st century and nanoelectronics is growing. You qualified as an engineer.

Do you know the following:

  1. Why is the Earth rotating around the sun and also itself?
  2. Is the sun a nuclear fission of nuclear fusion?
  3. What is a photon?
  4. What is Light”?
  5. What is termed the Lorenzo factor?

You are not fit for anything as I believe you are a Hindu monk.

Some people attempt to gain popularity and they choose the shortest path which is protest marches, Puthur to Polikandi” etc. If you are a true monk, please get out of politics and go to Nallur temple and prepare some good reports like Buddhist theology.

All those people who have no perception may attempt to ride along your side, which is dangerous for the Tamils in Sri Lanka.

Please allow the Tamils to live in peace.
