TNA=LTTE – හැඩි දෙමළා මොන නමින් ආවත් කොටිම තමයි

Denazify the LTTE–TNA (both are one and the same)

 

When Hitler and the Nazi’s were defeated by the Allied Troops (UK, US, France and Soviet Union) a policy of Denazification took place. The objective was to totally eliminate any ideology associated with Nazism. World War 2 ended in 1945 and immediately thereafter the program of Denazification began. Only after its conclusion in 1958 was Germany handed back to the Germans after occupying it for 13 years after the war was over. It is now ever more clear that everything that the LTTE stood for is now being carried forward by the TNA. This same denazification of the LTTE-TNA vis a vis the ideology of separate homeland and succession needs to now be applied here in Sri Lanka.

Denazification as a legal term was coined by the Pentagon in 1943. Known as the “Denazification Directives” it meant the removal of all physical symbols associated with Nazi regime, The Nazi party was abolished, any Nazi links to cultural, social, intellectual, economic or even politics was abolished and removed.  Everyone who supported Hitler or the Nazis were held accountable and charged with war crimes at the Nuremberg Trials. The aim of the trials was to purge all elements of Nazism. Germany had to even remove the Swastika from its Iron Cross Medals in 1957. This is no different to what Sri Lanka needs to also do minus the atrocities that the Allied Troops committed for which they are yet to be held accountable for.

Refugees of Nazism both German and Austrian were all sent back to Germany and Austria. Germans had to fill a questionnaire that helped categorize them as Major Offenders, Offenders, Lesser Offenders, Followers and Exonerated Persons. The Americans applies this category to every Germany above 18 years. 1.5million Germans were categorized as hard-core Nazis.

Denazification also took place with US taking over German media and 37 German newspapers, 6 radio stations, 314 theatres, 642 cinemas, 101 magazines, 237 book publishers and 7384 book dealers and printers made sure there were NO criticism of the Allied occupation or its forces. Over 30,000 book titles ranging from school textbooks to poetry were banned and anyone in possession of even one was punished. The banned books were confiscated and destroyed.  Even artwork related to Nazism were prohibited.

Denial of the holocaust is considered a crime and banned in most countries of Europe. In 2001, the EU criminalized holocaust denial.

The constitution of German was completed on May 8, 1949 and ratified on 23 May greatly influenced by the denazification process. Germans were to be all held responsible in what was officially termed “collective responsibility” for the actions of the Nazi regime. “Collective guilt” was another term applied to all Germans. This was the psychological warfare imposed upon the Germans by the Allied troops and its policy was never questioned. Posters in German were put up “You are guilty of this” or “These atrocities : Your Guilt”. Photos of dead humans carried heading “Who is guilty?” or “This town is guilty! You are Guilty”. Germans were forces forced to see rotting corpses and made to further feel guilty on a quest to make ALL Germans feel “collectively responsible” and “collectively guilty” for the crimes of the Nazis.

The goal of denazification was to ensure that never again Germany would be able to destroy European peace.

How is the denazification of Germany relevant to the terrorism that prevailed in Sri Lanka throughout 30 years?

For starters the fact that rebel movements were first mobilized by India training as much as 50 groups of Sri Lankan Tamils on Indian soil, providing them arms and financially supporting them and having Indian intelligence supervise their crimes in Sri Lanka, satisfactorily removes any argument of the country suffering an “ethnic” problem except to suit politicians and their own personal agendas.

Corroborating this fact is the reality that more Tamils live outside their propaganda suited “Tamil Homeland” and amongst the Sinhalese whilst numerous Tamils hold public and private senior positions with no “exclusive” grievance applicable to Tamils. Lists of aspirations can be compiled by all communities – it is ridiculous to except a Government to deliver everyone’s aspirations!

Having said that what confuses the dilemma is the reality that we cannot disassociate the LTTE from the TNA.

The links are not hard to miss. The first salvo for “separatism” was attempted during British reign, Tamil ethnic political parties (All Ceylon Tamil Congress) were created during British rule, other parties slyly hid the quest for separatism under a “federal” party name and the Vaddukoddai Resolution of 1972 even called for youth to take up arms. This was the very year that Prabakaran at 18 established his Tamil New Tigers on 22 May 1972 which he rechristened as LTTE on 5 May 1976. Either Prabakaran hijacked what the Tamil politicians wanted to achieve or both were following the same objective by different route though it served well to use the fact that LTTE annihilated Tamils to establish that the two entities differed. In reality what the LTTE did was to remove all Tamils who were for peacefully living with other communities something which the TNA would have silently accepted too. This is what neither the remnants of the LTTE overseas and the Tamil politicians in Sri Lanka cannot hide.

As far as “collective guilt” is concerned Tamil civilians have always preferred not to make their stand known either about the LTTE or the Tamil political parties and more importantly about the desire to live amongst the other communities in Sri Lanka. Given that no one is keeping them by force as they live outside “Tamil homeland” the least that they now can do is to put an end to the charade that is disintegrating the nation primarily because of their silence. The Tamil civil population actually can put an end to the politics of separatism that prevails if only they come out and tell their politicians that they do not wish to separate and they do not wish for their representatives to continue the separatist quest. Only a handful of these Tamil opportunist MPs are taking the entire nation to ruin.

So long as these Tamil political parties include in the political manifestos the objective of a separate homeland and self-determination we are simply going around in circles. Therefore, the Tamil people need to break their silence just as the Muslims should not do the same mistake by silently watching radicalism and fundamentalists nurture its tentacles to create another issue that would also start to break Sri Lanka apart.

TNA-LTTE are one and the same

In terms of the end objective there is no difference in TNA or LTTE. TNA is an unregistered alliance formed in 2001 comprising ACTC (All Ceylon Tamil Congress), the EPRLF (Eelam People’s Revolutionary Liberation Front), TELO (Tamil Eelam Liberation Organization), TULF (Tamil United Liberation Front). It was with this 2001 alliance and the LTTE’s attempt to influence TNA politicians to enter parliament that needs everyone’s attention. TNA is in parliament because of the LTTE.

 

When TNA issues a manifesto with the following policies it cannot despite fielding a retired judge cover its stripes! Moreso, when the TNA and its new Chief Ministerial candidate makes the same demands as the LTTE it simply seals that both TNA and LTTE are one and the same – the only difference being the armed factor that divided the two apart. Once the military component of the LTTE has been removed everything that LTTE demands is no different to that which TNA has been demanding. Denazification of the LTTE-TNA would have removed all insignia, all slogans, all parties and all associated entities with that separatist ideology all together. As it is there are 44 registered political parties of which 15 are Tamil and most of them carry the “eelam” name – if Allied Troops had their way, all these would have been removed and no one could go crying to the UN or other humanitarian agencies claiming human rights violations. If the Allied Troops did so to Germany, they cannot object to Sri Lanka adopting a similar policy.

2001 TNA election manifesto

a) Recognition of Tamils as a distinct nationality  b) Recognition of a Tamil Homeland with guaranteed territorial integrity  c) Recognition of the inalienable right of self-determination of the Tamil nation.  d) Recognition of the right to full citizenship and fundamental democratic rights of all Tamils.

2004 TNA election manifesto

Accepting the LTTE’s leadership as the national leadership of ‘Tamil Eelam’ Tamils and the Liberation Tigers as the sole and authentic representative of the Tamil people, let us devote our full cooperation for the ideals of the Liberation Tigers’ struggle with honesty and steadfastness. Let us endeavour determinedly, collectively as one group, one nation, one country, transcending race and religious differences, under the leadership of the LTTE, for a life of liberty, honour and justice for the Tamil people.”

It is not just the TNA manifesto there are plenty of examples that connect TNA-LTTE alliance.

·         TNA parliamentarians openly attend pro-LTTE events abroad and have no qualms about speaking atop these stages or delivering speeches that echo sentiments of separatism. There are enough of speeches to prove this.

·         TNA parliamentarians openly communicate and laise with LTTE front organizations overseas who form the LTTE Tamil Diaspora probably all kept united by our “friend” the neighbor.

·         In 2001 TNA announced that the LTTE was the “sole Tamil National Entity” claiming that as SOLE REPRESENTATIVE of the Tamil people in Sri Lanka LTTE had a right to negotiate on behalf of the Tamil people.

·         Foreign mission briefings about country data always include TNA as a pro-LTTE party while media briefings carry similar description and sufficient proof is available to prove that both foreign missions and foreign media are well aware of the LTTE-TNA alliance though for their advantage they keep mum.

·         In 2004, the most damning evidence comes from the EU Election observation Mission with its Chief John Cushnahan releasing the EU report on 17, June 2004 that clearly establishes beyond doubt of the LTTE-TNA alliance: Firstly, the LTTE intended that no other rival Tamil party (or Tamil candidate from the mainstream political alliances) to the TNA would be able to claim to represent Tamil interests. A chilling message to this effect was sent early in the campaign when a UNP candidate and an EPDP activist were murdered. Incidents such as this seriously restricted the right of the parties other than the TNA to campaign freely in the Northern and Eastern Districts. During the 2004 elections, the major incidences of violence was perpetrated by the LTTE, whereas at the earlier elections, the primary source of the violence (although not all), were the two largest political parties.

·         Then in 2009 in a statement to the President signed by Anandasangaree as President/Secretary of the TULF states “Democratic Tamil National Alliance considers the TNA, as the first and the worst enemy of the Tamil People. They should take full responsibility, among many other matters, for the loss of several thousands of lives and for causing injuries for many more.…. All have become paupers now. They will find hardly anything left when they return to their homes one day. All these or atleast 90 % of these could have been saved and total displacement could have been avoided if only the TNA had the forethought to advise the LTTE to release the people from their grip, to go anywhere they liked. The TNA is blamed for this because, when everyone, every organization, every country, the EU, the UN etc. had made this request specifically, only the TNA kept on asking for the war to stopWhen the 8000 students who sat for the G.C.E(O/L) exam were taken away for compulsory training by the LTTE the TNA kept mum. Some of them are now dead and others are under detention by the Government. Where are the children and grand-children of the TNA MPs. Will the TNA at least now tell the world as to what happened to the students at Sencholai. …. “Who are these gentleman of the TNA now wanting to form an alliance with the DTNA. They are the people whom the LTTE elected to represent them in parliament fraudulently and it is they who unashamedly claimed the LTTE as the sole representatives of the people. The LTTE is no more and hence they do not need any representation in Parliament. Under the Present circumstances the most honourable action the TNA can take or must do is to quit parliament without clinging on to that office. Neither the PLOTE nor the EPRLF (Pathmanabha) gave any indication to Mr. Srikantha who met me by appointment and the other two by accident. As for me I will not touch the TNA even with a “pole”. The dead, the injured and those living in the IDP camps deprived of all their rights will not pardon us if we have any deal with them. The TNA should not under-estimate our alliance partners who cannot be bought over with a mayor-ship or with any membership in Parliament as they sold themselves in April 2004. …. “For five years I fought a lone battle, amidst threat to my life, unbearable humiliations etc. I was also christened as a “traitor”. I now feel exonerated. Let the souls of the dead haunting our homes bless me and not curse me.” V. Anandasangaree, has signed the statement as President – TULF & Secretary – DTNA/2009.

But, it appears V Anandasangaree might have to eat his own words because his statement of 2009 has been reversed and he is now joining the TNA alliance. However, politicians cannot say and undo what they say every full moon and expect us to accept what they want to use when it becomes beneficial to politicians in a game of opportunity for opportunists.

Should we not then have every right to pin point TNA’s “collective guilt” to every crime committed by the LTTE? Killing of civilians, destruction of civilian property, suicide missions on civilians and public places, human smuggling, narcotics, induction of children as child soldiers, depriving children of human rights and their right to education, bank heists and other raids, political assassinations and the list goes on. For by virtue of canvassing a former supreme court judge as Chief Ministerial candidate for the North does not exonerate neither the TNA or the LTTE except to question the credibility and the integrity of the former judge himself tying up with a party guilty of its allegiance and alliance to LTTE terror.

When TNA goes running off to India to be told what to say and what to do we do not need higher educational qualifications to understand that India is pulling all the strings be it Tamil Diaspora, TNA or now the Northern Chief Ministerial candidate. It was India who drafted all the Resolutions pushed against Sri Lanka in Geneva though it was too much of a coward to own up and had to even hide behind the US simply to fool Sri Lanka that India remains a “friend”. It is a country that does not know whether it is coming or going but inspite of it all it cannot break away from its ugly policy of disintegrating its neighbors who all find India nothing but a childish bully unfit for superpower status.

Germany as a nation suffered tremendously – its denazification program ensured that ideology of Nazism was buried before the country was handed back to Germany. The Germans were not entitled to decry foreign occupation or object to foreign military presence and that foreign presence remained for 13 years. Sri Lanka has no foreign military presence, the Sri Lankan army is the national army and the Government has every right to position it wherever it sees fit – no Chief Ministerial candidate or foreign government or a Tamil Alliance linked to the LTTE has any right to be demanding its removal simply because someone is going to be elected Chief Minister of a province. A province is not a country. The war was fought fare and square. LTTE challenge the Sri Lankan Forces – the challenge was accepted, enough of amnesty’s were given far more than they actually deserved, 2 Presidential appeals to lay down arms were ignored claiming the LTTE would fight to the end and what are the remnants whining about now? The LTTE and its supporters must be dreaming if they think they can make challenges and expect the Sri Lankan forces to become chicken fodder.

It is time Sri Lanka adopted some harsh measures for which it can give adequate grounds that it is only following what the Allied Troops did to ensure that neither the LTTE nor TNA destroys the peace that 27,000 Sri Lankan troops sacrificed their lives for.

Why there should not be an ethnic-based
 Arabic University in Sri Lanka  
 Shenali D Waduge
 “The argument against the establishment of an ethnic-based university has nothing to do with being against learning but everything to do with the principle that if authorities are attempting to integrate the youth and not segregate them why are they establishing places of learning that is imparting a brand of education that distances them from other communities?”
The Minister of Education announced recently that the Ministry would do away with ethnic-based schools given its own “principled” stand we would next like to know how using the same logic of not allowing “ethnic” based learning, the education authorities have signed an MOU to establish the Malik Abdulla University College in Kattankudy, in Eastern Province.

When the announcement was given by the Ministry of Education that they would remove “ethnic-based” schools the first thoughts of everyone was whether leading schools that have been in existence for years, Government or Semi-Government would agree to changing their names. Ministers have a way of drawing public attention by announcements that provide no logic just as absurd as some came out with the need to change the national anthem and the national flag and now it appears someone has landed a lucrative deal to change the national ID card to include Tamil as well.

Obviously, objections would have been made with former schools, children, parents or past-pupils NOT wanting to change the name of their alma-mater that the Ministry quickly reversed its stand and declared “No NEW schools would be ethnic-based”. What do authorities propose to do about the rising number of Muslim Only and Tamil Only international schools, day care centers springing up in every corner while there are no Sinhala Only universities? Does this fall within the oft quoted “multi” label?

So if the Ministry has decided to not allow no NEW ethnic-based schools what explanation can be given to allowing a MUSLIM ONLY university college?

The University College is to be funded by Saudi Arabia which is known for funding institutes that radicalize youth and draws them towards Saudi brand of Islam and Sharia law.

The newspaper announcements claim that the University was requested by Deputy Minister Hisbullah and is established as part of the Mahinda Chintanaya which clearly goes to show how authorities have a way of manipulating the system because no where in the Chintanaya does it say to create ETHNIC-based private colleges unless another Chintanaya is being practiced. But the college itself is earmarked to be inaugurated by the President himself. The announcements last line that it would “cater to the needs of all three communities” is obviously a whitewash.

The argument against the establishment of an ethnic-based university has nothing to do with being against learning but everything to do with the principle that if authorities are attempting to integrate the youth and not segregate them why are they establishing places of learning that is imparting a brand of education that distances them from other communities?

Students coming out of such universities end up mentally and physically alienating themselves out of choice (in view of their new Arabic attire and thinking) and disassociating themselves from those in their age group – this affects the team spirit, the ability to work as teams even when they join employment. Is this a healthy environment we wish to create?

Moreover, we cannot ignore the rise in Saudi-funded Islamic radicalism to be naïve that while this may exist elsewhere it is unlikely to create similar catastrophe’s here in Sri Lanka too.
Recently wikileaks released US Embassy in Colombo cable identifying 4 such groups based in Sri Lanka – Jamthi Islam, Thauhid Jamath, Thableeq Jamath, and Jamathi Muslim. The cable was written by Ambassador Lunstead on 9 June, 2004. The cable also details training camps, while other youth are sent to Saudi and says that a Saudi-based NGO World Assembly of Muslim Youth fund these activities. The Ambassador cites that the Muslim youth initially started training to defend themselves against the LTTE. The cable also mentions the Muslim Congress being supported by the Islamic Unity Foundation which has military, intelligence, religious and political wings as well as weapons. Other groups mentioned in the cable include Knox group, Ossama group, Jetty group, Mujahadeen, Banda group all with Muslim Congress backing. Links to the underworld is also mentioned. Ambassador Lunstead also notes “very little insight into the veiled world of Muslim militancy in eastern Sri Lanka and the information provided is just one part of a vast puzzle that makes up the cultural/political/religious melting pot of Sri Lanka.” This clearly shows that we need to be alert to all Saudi-funded seats of learning because the outcome of these in other parts of the world have resulted in fatal consequences and have torn entire nations apart. The question is – do we want to invite the same in Sri Lanka when we have just come out of a 30 year chaos?
The argument is further strengthened by the fact that ALREADY there are 5 types of institutes offering Arabic in Sri Lanka – the GOSL conducts 2 types of examinations, there are the Madrasas (religious based schools) which offer 8 years Sharia courses, then 4 Government universities which offer degree level courses and the Jamia Naleemia in Beruwela which is also a private university. There is a rising number of children as young as 7 attending these madrasas instead of schools which raises the question of Sri Lanka’s international commitment that ALL Children must attend schools – not religious based schools.

However, Arabic language courses selected by undergraduate students raises more questions than answers – normally in marketing the demand creates the supply – from what is happening is that the supply is been geared to create the demand.

There are 749 Muslim schools in Sri Lanka, and 205 Madrasas registered under the Department of Muslim cultural affairs which provide Islamic education though unregistered madrasas number far more.

For the 1.8million Muslims of Sri Lanka the number of already existing religious and educational establishments suffices to say the least. Authorities now need to work out a moratorium so that the demography of the country is kept intact and the peace dividends that 27,000 soldiers sacrificed their lives for is not eliminated by the shortsighted decisions taken by officials and public servants.

Buddhist compassion – Enactment of Animal Welfare Bill

 

Buddhist compassion for sentient beings warrants enactment of Sri Lanka’s Animal Welfare Bill without any further delay
Posted on May 24th, 2013

Shenali D. Waduge

Sri Lanka with a Theravada Buddhist civilization that protected and fostered Buddhism has much to introspect. With over 70% of the population being Buddhists it is a national shame that we continue to forget the very basic teachings of the Buddha whose message to us was to treat non – human sentient beings with compassion and loving – kindness, as though they were no different to humans with feelings and pain. If animals share emotions no different to ours, is it not a huge embarrassment that in this reputed Buddhist country our elected leaders fall shy of enacting the Animal Welfare Bill tabled in Parliament in 2010 as a Private Member’s Bill and which has its genesis in the Animal Welfare Bill drafted and sanctioned by the Law Commission in 2006?
We cannot be Buddhists by name
There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth.
NOT GOING ALL THE WAY and NOT STARTING
– Buddha –
What sort of legislative reform is the Ministry of Justice supposed to be undertaking when the primary statute in Sri Lanka governing the protection and welfare of animals to this day is an antiquated statute enacted during the British colonial era in 1907 i.e. Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Ordinance, where the maximum punishment for a heinous crime to an animal is a mere Rs. 100 (less than one US Dollar)?.
If the International probe on Sri Lanka’s human rights record is to be extended to cover the legislative protection given to animals in Sri Lanka and lack of interest shown by our lawmakers in improving the standard of care and treatment afforded to other living creatures, we will have nowhere to turn. It is shameful that we have stooped to this level of intolerance. We stand almost last in the queue of nations very close in this respect to several Islamic nations like Sudan, Iraq, Somalia and, Saudi Arabia, that by deliberate choice refuse to provide legislative protection to animals.
As a pre-dominant Buddhist nation is the Sri Lankan Parliament beholden to protect animals by enacting the Animal Welfare Bill already sanctioned and gathering dust since 2006? Can Sri Lanka’s Parliamentarians morally defend their silence?
The need to enact the Animal Welfare Bill is further strengthened by the international Petition gathering momentum the world over by the Dharma Voices for Animals launched in the USA.
Life is dear to all beings
To a Buddhist, good conduct requires “putting away the killing of living things” and holding “aloof from the destruction of life” (barring self-defense)
All beings tremble before danger, all fear death. When a man considers this, he does not kill or cause to kill.
All beings fear before danger, life is dear to all. When a man considers this, he does not kill or cause to kill.
He who for the sake of happiness hurts others who also want happiness, shall not hereafter find happiness.
He who for the sake of happiness does not hurt others who also want happiness, shall hereafter find happiness.
– Dhammapada 54
The first, and most fundamental Buddhist precept requires followers to refrain from killing—not just human beings, but all living beings. This prescription against killing “is central to the Buddhist tradition. Indeed, it is in fact one of the few common features across the vast Buddhist tradition and its many sects, strands, and branches”
The Sutta-Nipāta includes the following beautiful contribution to spiritual literature encouraging compassion in humankind:
“may all be blessed with peace always;
all creatures weak or strong,
all creatures great and small;
creatures unseen or seen
dwelling afar or near,
born or awaiting birth,
—may all be blessed with peace!
. . . as with her own life
a mother shields from hurting her own,
her only child, —
let all-embracing thoughts
for all that lives be thine,
—an all-embracing love
for all the universe’
Buddhist Social Order
We do not expect leaders to be simply ceremonial Buddhists paying only lip service to Buddhism as is happening. Look around and see how life has been devalued and killing has become a way of life. We need to return to a Dharmishta society where a Buddhist Social Order prevails like in the days of our ancient Sinhala Buddhist Kings who upheld righteousness and projected themselves as role models of piety to the subjects. A Buddhist Social Order is one not espousing everyone to be Buddhists but for all Buddhists to follow the fundamentals and for all others to respect these fundamentals without intentionally hurting by actions that run contrary.
The Mahavamsa records the noble conduct of our past rulers and extols righteousness, justice, piety and the need to strive for human perfection with love and compassion towards all, both human and non – human.
We must renew that journey and it must start with the enactment of the Animal Welfare Bill. There is no need for any further delay. We must not allow the religious bigotry of a few with different and extremist beliefs including members in the Cabinet to stand in the way of the State governing this nation in line with the teachings of the Buddha.
We need to relook at how life should be looked upon. We have destroyed nature enough –the flora and fauna are all suffering as a result of man’s greed and desires. We are affecting the animal habitat and that is likely to return to us in manifold ways. The 2004 Tsunami was just one example. Nature treats us the way we treat nature.
The leaders of the nation cannot be leading the country based on political opportunism – doing what is right by both man and animal is what the nation of Sri Lanka is now required to do. We need to return to the fundamentals of life in trying times where water and food may well become the basis of future wars.
The reasoning behind enactment of the Animal Welfare Bill goes far behind its enactment and will benefit future generation and the existence of Sri Lanka in terms of sustainability too. That message is what all Sri Lankans need to ponder over.

Good Job Sir – රණවිරු ගෝඨාභය උතුමාට අපගේ ආචාරය

Our hats off to Gota and Defense circles
by citizen mahinda
It is appropriate and admirable phrasing the action taken to arrest and interrogate the Jihad / Al Qaida   Leader is Sri Lanka namely Azath Salley, by the Criminal Investigation Dept. headed by the Defense circles.
We have been relentlessly publicizing and demanding in our forums and numerous attempts to force the defense circles appealing for apprehension of this Mad Dog who envisages to be the Bin Laden in Sri Lanka, and the threat is posed is horrible from the various information we gathered at different times. We hope that the defense circles will now be able to uncover the secrets behind this Jihad/Al Qaida Leader and other horrible information entailing behind him and about the organizations being operated under the feets.
We now appeal the Defense circles to interrogate him and follow the US Defense and Dept. of State information warning issued long time back with regards to several Islamic Terror groups operating in Sri Lanka which are headed by Asath Salley and Rauff Hakkim, and with no delay the biggest culprit the Rauff Hakkinm should also be interrogated under the law the P.T.A. We have evidence of several Islamic camps associated with Muslims schools and giving weapon training to Muslims children.
Now the govt. should chase out the Muslims from the high posts they are holding and they shall be kicked off the parliament and all posts they are holding.
Should any more incidents instigated by Muslims, we Helayas are not going to keep unto our silence and we will begin annihilating them forever from this Buddhist land. Let them go back to where they came from.
Please do not brand us to Racists, but we need to maintain our Buddhist Sinhela identity of this land for generations to come, and that was afforded to us by our proud ancestors
Our humble gratitude and supreme salutation to dear Gota,  for the excellent job done
May you be well and happy,

Ban Hate Speech – Begin with the Bible and Koran
Posted on April 29th, 2013

Shenali Waduge

Everybody looked forward to the Rally for Unity – a vigil held in Colombo on 28 April 2013 to oppose hate speech. The event was marred and exposed by the reporting of BBC’s Charles Haviland who showed the hypocrisy of the entire exercise “About 500 people have marched through the centre of the Sri Lankan capital, Colombo, protesting against a recent wave of ethnic hatred which has seen hardline Buddhists targeting the Muslim minority”. So if the theme in arranging a unity rally was to target one group (without the possible knowledge of the participants) what can we really say about who are inciting “hate speech”? Finger pointing at the majority Sinhala Buddhists – is nothing uncommon in Colombo. It happens all the time.
Buddhism bashing is the favourite pass time of the English language press and their favored columnists, international news agencies e.g. BBC, and minority led lobby groups – who cant wait to put a spin to every article against the majority Buddhists. The columns of the daily and week – end newspapers bear witness to it. These new rallies and vigils which are heavily funded from overseas show the efforts being taken to reduce the space and territory of the people belonging to the older culture in the Buddhist hinterland and exert enough public opinion for the Government to turn the other cheek and bring in legislation against the majority Buddhists.
These covert schemes have thankfully raised awareness amongst the Sinhala Buddhists who are now no longer prepared to idle and wait on the sidelines.
However, Buddhist protests are construed as hate speech, while the same groups ignore the hate speech well integrated in the religious texts of Abrahamic religions that spur their followers to view Sri Lanka as another trophy to be won like the Maldives, Indonesia and South Korea, all of which countries were once a upon a time Buddhist.
The world has had enough of hate. It is hate that is destroying man and his habitat all over the world. There are endless entities all assuming to end hate but their efforts have proven futile. From the time we are born our upbringing through the values taught in the home, the learning given in schools and the religious texts to which we are subject to develop people into thinking and acting as they do. Given the importance of learning in the early years of our lives the place of religious texts that create divide and dissent plays a major role in determining the root causes to most of the hate that prevails today.
While the Buddhist texts does not have a single line to hate another or to fight against another neither does the Bhagawad Gita. However, both the Bible and the Koran are guilty in this respect and whatever excuses made the fact that between these 2 religions the hate for others have clearly shown by the wars and conflicts that have taken place through history. It is these two religions that not only are responsible for wars and conflicts but the hate they have against each other are affecting the entire world.

Like or not these are simple facts that need to be accepted and it is possibly the best time to omit these lines altogether from the texts so that future generations of children will not be exposed to such references where they are taught to hate non-believers and people who do not belong to their faiths. Though it must be reiterated and stressed that there are many who are Christian or Muslim who are able to intellectually take what is relevant and not from these texts but what about those who are brainwashed into following these lines of hatred and who end up being used to wage wars and conflicts?
Both the Bible and the Koran tells followers to destroy, kill and harm others. “Others” are those who do not agree, is not a believer, is gay – in other words it is any who are not following their religion.  The speech by Geert Wilders on the Koran is given below:
 “Madam Speaker, I acknowledge that there are people who call themselves Muslims and who respect our laws. My party, the Freedom Party, has nothing against such people, of course. However, the Koran does have something against them. For it is stated in the Koran in Sura 2, verse 85, that those believers who do not believe in everything the Koran states will be humiliated and receive the severest punishment; which means that they will roast in Hell. In other words, people who call themselves Muslims but who do not believe, for example, in Sura 9, verse 30 [actually 9:29], which states that Jews and Christians must be fought, or, for example, in Sura 5, verse 38, which states that the hand of a thief must be cut off, such people will be humiliated and roast in Hell. Note that it is not me who is making this up. All this can be found in the Koran. The Koran also states that Muslims who believe in only part of the Koran are in fact apostates, and we know what has to happen to apostates. They have to be killed.
Then he goes on to call for consistency in the application of Dutch laws that restrict speech that incites to violence, but which have never been applied to the Qur’an or to the hate-filled imams who preach jihad and Islamic supremacism in obedience to Qur’anic dictates:
Madam Speaker, the Koran is a book that incites to violence. I remind the House that the distribution of such texts is unlawful according to Article 132 of our Penal Code. In addition, the Koran incites to hatred and calls for murder and mayhem. The distribution of such texts is made punishable by Article 137(e). The Koran is therefore a highly dangerous book; a book which is completely against our legal order and our democratic institutions. In this light, it is an absolute necessity that the Koran be banned for the defence and reinforcement of our civilisation and our constitutional state. I shall propose a second-reading motion to that effect.”
The issue of hate speech stemming from religious texts is that whenever such examples are highlighted it seeks cover under “freedom of religion” – which sweeps the issue out of focus.
What must be reiterated is that most of todays’ conflicts are associated with followers of Christianity and Islam and their religious texts have lines that build up hatred amongst innocents learning the faith.
The genuine peace seekers must take a new initiative to ensure that such lines are omitted or sidelined in the greater interest of PEACE and STABILITY in the world and for the future generations.
We do not need or want any clash of civilizations – we have had enough wars and hate.
