Is India adopting a pro Islamic and anti Hindu foreign Policy?

Posted by hinduexistence on July 24, 2014

Tamil Issue. Canada Vs India

Anti Tamil and Pro Palestine stands of India signal an anti-Hindu and pro-Islamic foreign Policy of Modi Govt. in a cross road. 

“India votes in support of UN Human Rights Council resolution on Gaza”

“India to be more supportive of Sri Lanka at UN: Dr Subramnian Swamy”

SS n RPUpananda Brahmachari | Hindu Existence Media Bureau | New Delhi | 24 July 2014:: I am so disgusted to here that India  along with BRICS countries today in Geneva UN HQ voted in support of a UN Human Rights Council resolution to launch a probe into Israel’s offensive on Gaza.

India joined Brazil, Russia, China and South Africa to vote for a Palestinian-drafted resolution on “Ensuring Respect for international law in The Occupied Palestinian Territories, including East Jersusalem”.

The 47-member council adopted the investigation under a draft resolution after a request by Palestine, which has UN observer status.

  • 29 states voted in favour of the investigation.
  • 17 abstained, including many EU states.
  • 1 voted against – the US.

The voting came as bloodbath in the Gaza Strip continued unabated today with Israel and Hamas refusing to back down in the 16-day conflict that has killed over 680 Palestinians and 31 Israelis.

Yes,  US was the only nation to vote against the resolution. European countries abstained. But, India had not the courage to stand by US or to support Israel which is fighting against the largest menace of the present day society, ‘Al Jihad’.

Now, it has been proved that Narendra Modi is not courageous enough to put him in the row of Obama nor he cleared his stand to support Palestine the mentor of Hamas which is nothing but a strong exponent of bloody Jihad for the establishment of a Pan Islamic World. Ultimately India had to support a Pan Islamic stand for Palestine with some reasoning of human rights, violation of war principals and obviously the pity death of 680 Palestinians in the period of Ramadan.

The death of maximum 15,000-20,000 Palestinians (to my highest estimation) is a big sock for Indian politics and Modi concern but cruel genocide of  ‘147,000 Hindu Tamils’ (as many of Tamil and International Rights Orgs claim)  in Sri Lanka is not a concern at all for India and for the so called Hindutvawadi BJP led Govt in India.

On July 23rd, the official opposition in Canada, the New Democratic Party (NDP) observed the Black Day to commemorate the victims of the Tamil Hindu Genocide in Black July. The Tamil organisations observed it worldwide to denounce the dangerous motive of blood thirsty Sinhala Govt.

NDP and other Tamil Orgs in Canada remembered the hundreds of Tamils who were killed and the thousands who were displaced when their homes and businesses were destroyed in Sri Lanka from the violence that ensued from the pogroms targeting Tamils that began on July 23, 1983. The perpetrators and organizers of the violence have never been held accountable for their actions.

In his statement, Tom Mulcair, the Leader of the Official Opposition and also NDP told, “As we remember, New Democrats renew our commitment to defend the human rights of the Tamil people in Sri Lanka and press for accountability. Canada and the world have a responsibility to ensure to ensure that basic human rights principles are upheld by all countries. We also strongly condemn the Sri Lankan government’s ban on diaspora groups in Canada and around the world. Lest we forget.”

But, a double standard Dr. Subramanian Swamy, a veteran BJP leader and now the chairman of the BJP Committee for Strategic Action, went to Sri Lanka to hold the bloody hand of  SL President Mahinda Rajapaksa only to demoralize Tamil Rights Groups trying to expose the reality of a Tamil Genocide in Sri Lanka, 90% of which are the innocent Tamil Hindu poor people of Tamil dominated areas in the north and East of SL.

As India is not a signatory to the 1951 Refugee Convention. Refugees have no right to freedom of movement. India’s Foreigners Act 1946 and Citizenship Act 1955 define all non-citizens who enter without visas to be illegal migrants, with no exception for refugees or asylum seekers. Possession of a UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) refugee certificate does not protect refugees from detention.

More than 100,000 Sri Lankan Tamils live in between 115 and 130 refugee camps in Tamil Nadu State in India. Aid workers say that some refugees live in thatched huts, others in small cement blockhouses. There are no proper toilet facilities, bathing facilities or adequate drinking water. There is no rubbish collection, and only some camps have medical facilities. Electricity is provided in some locations, but usually only between 6 am and 6 pm. In some camps there is no electricity for many inmates. Six houses at Thiruvadhavur collapsed in monsoonal rains recently, killing a girl.

These Tamils previously sought refuge in India from Sri Lanka’s 1983-2009 extremely brutal civil war. In 2011 a UN expert panel identified war crimes such as abductions, torture and disappearances, in which high government officials were implicated. Over 100,000 people were killed and one million displaced. Tamils were exposed daily to air strikes and atrocities, forcing many to flee to India.

And the Tamil Hindus still stay in Sri Lanka unfortunately face the brutal evil of Buddha Sasana. While whole of the world is condemning the Rajapaksa and his predecessors, BJP and Dr. Subramanian Swamy patting his back for the  Tamil Genocide in Sri Lanka.

While UN rights council approved inquiry against the anti Tamil Sinhala authorities (by yes: 23, No: 12,  Abstention: 12) into alleged abuses in Sri Lanka war in the session on 27th March 2014, why India abstained then? One may say that it was not a Modi Govt then. But, when we see a hobnobbing Swamy with his SL Paksa, it would be another story of India’s voting against motion to support Sri Lanka.

On that resolution UNHRC (United Nations Human Rights Council) said: ”The Sri Lankan Government declared victory over the rebel LTTE in May 2009, after a conflict that had raged on and off for nearly three decades and killed thousands of people. The final months of the conflict had generated concerns about alleged violations of international human rights and humanitarian law”.

The matter was unheard then by Indian authority and is still now in force as resumed by the Dr Subramanian Swamy and his gangs in BJP.

Speaking on ‘India under Modi: relevance for the region and the world’, captioned forum organised by Bandaranaike Centre for International Studies in Colombo on Monday ( July 21st) he said India’s foreign policy shall henceforth be guided by national interest and not regional interest.

Referring to the perceived fear about Tamil Nadu’s role in India’s foreign policy, he said there was no “Tamil Nadu factor”, adding that people of Tamil Nadu had repeatedly demonstrated so in elections. “I would urge Ms. Jayalalithaa to visit Sri Lanka and get a reality check.”

Referring to the meeting Dr. Swamy and his team had with President Mahinda Rajapaksa earlier on Monday, he said, “We said let us delink Indo-Lanka relations from Tamil Nadu and problems of the Tamils.” However, Mr. Swamy was quick to add that as a friend he would urge Sri Lanka to address certain issues of the 13th Amendment, which he said, remain “unnecessarily” unresolved. “If our friendship and interaction develops sufficiently, we will give you ideas on what could be done.” This certification for Rajapaksa by Swamy must affect the politics in India and specially in Tamil Nadu, to make a debacle for BJP in the next.

The International Community, Civilized Democratic Countries like Canada,  US and  EU are working hard to find justice to the oppressed, helpless Hindu Tamils who are under an army occupation in Sri Lanka, where Hindu Tamil girls & women are being raped very often; Torture, killings, arrests are made under draconian PTA law;  Military presence at the ratio of  one soldier to every seven civilians  (1 : 7); More than 75% of the military stationed in the North & East – the traditional & historical homeland of the Hindu Tamils; Military is forcefully taking away the legal lands of the Tamils where they lived for centuries; Hindu temples are turned into Buddha Stupas here and there; shame on Swamy that you are just eye washing us in a big Hindu name. Shame, shame, shame!

India under Modi’s leadership for Good days (acche din anewala hai) may go opposite to Canada, Israel or US for a freak relation with Sri Lanka, Palestine or Pakistan, but loosing the reality out of grip may put the Nation more shocks from the neighboring countries with a bad dividend from the investments of wrong efforts.

Modi must not take such a inconceivable steps to ruin the interest of  victimized Tamil Hindu people in Sri Lanka and India too. But the managers of Modi  in external affairs showed their utter incapacity as they failed to take strong and necessary steps in violation of cease fire, cross border terrorism coming from Pakistan and China with  border disputes and  intrusions; atrocities on  Hindu minorities in Bangladesh and Pakistan; proper addressing the Tamil Hindu plight in neighboring Sri Lanka and finally supported Palestinian Jihad in the name of rights violation.

So the question is most pertinent: Is India adopting a pro Islamic and anti Hindu foreign Policy?

Hindu Tamil Rights Activists arrested in Sri Lanka for highlighting Genocide & Disappearances.

Posted by hinduexistence on March 15, 2014

Tamil Rights Activists belonging to their Hindu Roots are facing utter humiliation and persecution in Sri Lanka. 

Kilinochchi Disappearances Activist and her 13 Year Old Daughter arrested after Hours Of Interrogation.

Hindu Tamil Activists under ArrestHindu Existence Special Correspondent | Ontario – Canada | 14 March 2014:: Activist groups in Sri Lanka are now confirming that a Tamil widow from Kilinochchi, a Kilinochchi Disappearances Activist named Balendran Jeyakumari and her 13 year old daughter named Vidushika  have been arrested by police investigators following a five hour raid on their home at Dharmapuram last evening. Both of them are reportedly being held in Vavuniya.

Reports that Balendran Jeyakumari a prominent campaigner for families of the disappeared in the Kilinochchi District and her daughter were being detained inside her home which is in the Indian Housing scheme broke late afternoon yesterday (13th March). Balendran Jeyakumari and kumari Vidushika hail rom their traditional orthodox Tamil Shaiva faith. And the persecutor Sri Lankan Govt. is oppressing all these Hindu activists in their faith of fake Buddhist faith. The ruling Govt in Sri Lanka is doing all the harmful activities against humanity just violating all the norms of real preaching of Lord Buddha.

Media and Tamil politician Gajen Ponnambalam reported that Jayakumari’s home had been surrounded by police and armed forces personnel at about 4:30 P.M. on Thursday (13). Ponnambalam and other friends who called Jayakumari on her phone reported that the woman had first answered and that later her phone was snatched away by men claiming to be police, who said there was an investigation under way before switching off the mobile. Neighbours reported the sound of screams and crying by Vithushaini at the home. Media personnel rushing to the scene were not permitted to get close to Jayakumari’s residence, with police cordoning off the area near her home. For several hours no reports emerged about their whereabouts, although late Wednesday night, Ponnambalam said there were unconfirmed reports Jayakumari and her daughter had been arrested.

Police meanwhile, told reporters in Colombo that one policeman had been injured in an attack when a team of police personnel was attempting to arrest a suspected Ex-LTTE cadre in Kilinochchi. Police Spokesman Ajith Rohana told the BBC on Thursday that the suspect had been in a house in which there were two women who were now being investigated. More unconfirmed reports are emerging about further police casualties.

Jayakumari and her daughter Vithushaini are familiar faces in disappearances protests and were heavily photographed during the missing peoples’ protest in Jaffna when British Prime Minister David Cameron visited the area during CHOGM in November last year. Jayakumari had four children – two sons were killed in the war and a third went missing after she handed him over to the military in May 2009. Her 13 year old daughter is her last remaining child. Both Jayakumari and her daughter handed over documents of their family members last whereabouts and information to Channel 4′s Jonathan Snow who was mobbed by the demonstrators in Jaffna during Cameron’s visit. Sources said that the two women were being harassed on suspicion of having been informants for the British Broadcaster.

Video of demonstration at Nallur Kovil Jaffna prior to Cameron’s arrival in the North shows Jayakumari and her daughter are in the first row of protesters. Click here to watch the video.

The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) protests in the strongest terms for such unjustified arrest of Rights activists.

The TNA is shocked and appalled at the conduct of the authorities in this regard. The high-handed conduct of the government, even while its human rights record is under scrutiny at the current sessions of the Human Rights Council, is illustrative of the government’s disdainful conduct towards the Human Rights Council. The TNA demands that Jeyakumari and Vidushika be produced before a Magistrate forthwith and released. We remain deeply concerned for the safety and well-being of Jeyakumari and Vidushika, particularly given the context of reported widespread sexual violence against women in the Northern Province. We urge the international community to take all possible measures to ensure the safety and release of Jeyakumari and Vidushika.

In last two decades the Tamils of Sri Lanka saw a deadly genocide in a terrific hell, most of the victims of which are Tamil Hindus.

Dalai Lama praised the pattern of Coexistence in Hindu majority India. While he urges China to learn this coexistence, why he is silent about the Hindu-Tamil Genocide in Sri Lanka?

Posted by hinduexistence on February 8, 2014

519 Dalai-Lama

Dalai Lama Asks China to Learn from India’s model of coexistence. But, why he is silent about the Hindu-Tamil Genocide in Sri Lanka, a Buddhist Country?

Chinese intolerance against Buddhists.

Chinese intolerance against Buddhists. Brutal.

Upananda Brahmachari | Shillong | 7 Feb 2014:: On 3rd February in his first holy visit to North Eastern India, the Tibetan spiritual leader His Holiness Dalai Lama said, China should learn from India the practice of harmonious co-existence of different people, languages and lifestyles.            

“They should learn from India, which has apart from different regions, different people, different languages, different scripts and different lifestyles. Yet they all live harmoniously,” the Dalai Lama said while addressing the sixth convocation ceremony of the Martin Christian Luther University here at Shillong.

The spiritual leader, who visited Meghalaya for the first time since he made India his home, termed his adopted country as “wonderful and very nice” to live in.

He likened the country to the United Nations in its embracing a multi-cultural, multi-racial and multi-religion society, while blaming Chinese hardliners for infusing hatred against people living in Tibet. “We are not seeking separation from China. We belong to China with common interests and common economic development,” HH Dalai Lama emphasized.

“Modern India is multi-cultural, multi-linguistic and multi-racial. It is like the United Nations. I feel the greatness of India. Its people are harmless, and it is an example to the rest of the world as people are living together happily,” the Buddhist spiritual leader and the Nobel Peace laureate said.

Claiming to be a disciple of Gandhi’s principle of non-violence, the spiritual leader said he nursed a hope that India’s “concept of peaceful living” would make a better Asia and in turn make a better world.

“Over 3,000 years ago, India had the concept of Ahimsa (non-violence). Because of that it commands respect,” he said, adding that India was the living example of religious tolerance and culture.

His Holiness Dalai Lama holds the highest position in contemporary Buddhist order, he is the messenger of peace and ahimsha as propounded by lord Buddha and also the Nobel Peace laureate. HH Dalai Lama is also a living founder member of VHP established in 1964. We never put any question about his honor and wisdom to shower the peace and good to the mankind.

After reaching Bharat on 30 March 1959 at Bomdila (Arunachal Pradesh) he felt secured in his life long exile after being thwarted  from his seat of Tibet by the then tyrannic Communist Govt of China.

Sri Lankan genocide against Tamil-Hindus. Barbaric.

Sri Lankan genocide against Tamil-Hindus. Barbaric.

In his long experience of exile in India, His Holiness Dalai Lama definitely perceives the greatness and generosity of Bharat and her people. And HH Dalai Lama must not disagree that this coexistence, harmony, liberty and the trend of respects to others are only possible as the majority people here have granted this unique and imparallel culture as a basic tenets of Hindu faith and life-style. And for this Hindu spirituality and majority everybody can stay, grow and glow in a very Hindu environment. Any challenge or charter against this Hinduness of this land can move this country towards an Islamic fatal, Christian debacle or a Communist blaze without any option.

But, never could I remember any statement HH Dalai Lama to protect this Hinduness of this land under attack in the recent past.

The Dalai Lama went to Shillong to attend a function of a Christian College, the authority of which, i.e. the Missionaries and Evangelic groups promote huge conversion of Hindus-Buddhists in North East. Christians have made the major portion of the NE as just opposite to the Indian Culture. The NE Christian people do tolerate any Hindu or Indian-ness in that region. HH Dalai Lama did not address this important matter to request the Christian missionaries to stop their conversion agenda.

HH Dalai Lama asks China to restore peace and liberty in Tibet through a practice of Indian tradition and culture of coexistence in China.

But, is it not right to be implemented the same practice of Indian coexistence in Sri Lanka too?

Sri Lanka has its Buddha Sasana. And under this Buddha Sasana, it is told a largest genocide of Tamil-Hindus were occurred there through various operations be inhuman ruling parties in SL.

Various International bodies, UN, Amnesty, dignified Tamil bodies and Hindu Existence Forum have condemned the Hindu-Tamil Genocide in SL. But is not a concern of Buddha Sasana, as if.

While HH Dalai Lama speaks against Chaina rightly for making a peaceful coexistence of everybody in Tibet and China, He cannot be silent about Sri Lanka where the simple existence of Tamil-Hindu people are now positioned before the peace canon of Rajapakshe under a very inhumane stand against the non-Buddhist people in Sri Lanka.

HH Dalai Lama please hear the appeal of victimized Tamil-Hindu people of Sri Lanka for sending a strong message to the rulers of Sri Lanka to stop barbaric activities upon the Tamil –Hindu people in SL.

If HH Dalai Lama thinks that Hindu-Buddhist unity is a must to survive these two oldest faiths against the threats of Christianity, Islam and Communism, he must condemn the Hindu-Tamil Genocide in SL and convey the same message of coexistence of Indian pattern to Sri Lankan rulers, as he already conveyed to China.

30 Year Old Dambulla Badhrakaali Amman Kovil (Hindu Temple) Completely Demolished by Buddhist Fanatics in Sri Lanka.

 eCOLOMBO_TELEGRAPH and COLOMBO GAZETTE| 29 Oct 2013 (Updated 3 Nov 2013) | Dambulla Badhrakaali Amman Kovil has been completely demolished in night of 28th Oct., raises question about the safety of Badhra kaali amman temples in the southern Sri Lanka, says Dr.N Kumar Guruparan,Western Provincial Councillor and the Deputy Leader of Democratic Peoples’ Front and Spokesman for the Hindu Front.

Issuing a statement he says; “It’s with deep shock & sorrow I record here that the Dambulla Badhrakaali Amman Kovil (Temple) has been demolished yesterday  razed to the grounds ,which raises question about the safety of Badhra kaali amman temples in the southern Sri Lanka. I was shocked to hear when my good friend Hon Parliamentarian R .Yogarajan conveyed the sad news. We both in our own individual  capacity appealed to His Excellency the President Mahinda Rajapaksa him to act immediately to stop a 30 year old kovil in Dambulla being shifted.

We both in our individual capacity  appealed to His Excellency for the safety of this temple right from the beginning  of a buddhists’ chauvnistic  group started attack on this temple and moors mosque in the city of Dambulle, Dr.N Kumar Guruparan said.

He said; “It’s only a couple of days back I appealed to the President, through English media and Hon Yogarajan took up this matter to the notice of the Preident ‘that President need to take steps to safeguard the Badhrakaali Amman Kovil  in Dambulla. If things are going out of hands in spite of our appeal are we to find alternatives to appeal and bring pressure hence bring this to the notice of the High Commission of India now after the complete demolition by the civvies forces.

Dr. N Kumara Guruparan , Western Provincial Councillor and the Deputy Leader of Democratic Peoples’ Front and Spokesman of Hindu Front.

Unfortunate is that according to the trustee ‘Lechhumi ammah’ it was government forces went along in civvies with the well known Buddhist monk requested them to remove the temple from the historically in habited tamil area immediately  if not to face the consequences but trustees requested time till Wednesday for the religious rites to take place to close down the temple. without waiting they have demolished.Now fores have embarked on building  a fountain ammah’s relation told  me  in the evening now; Statue of the deity is lying in  the trustees residence. There is a group of Buddhist fundamentalists eager to change the history of Tamils and Hindus’ in Dambulla to bring down the  prominent life pan of history demolishing the temples and non Buddhist shrines in prominent palace.This issue and deliberate attack on Badrakaali amman temple is still continuing, the deity’s statue was smashed and thrown in to the well not even a month back. Guruparan said the trident in the premises had been used to remove the roofing.”

Tamil Net added: Buddhist monks assisted by SL military in civil, claiming that a Saiva temple in Dambulla is situated on the ‘sacred grounds’ of Buddha Boomi (Buddhist soil) demolished the Paththirakaa’li Amman Koayil Tuesday night, without allowing the temple management to even conduct the rituals for the closure of the temple and relocate the idols of deities inside the temple. The controversial demolition has taken place at the place where Buddhist extremists targeted a 50-year-old mosque for destruction last year, provoking the Muslims in the entire island. Dambulla, situated in the Matale District of Central Province, is a junction of major highways that link Jaffna, Trincomalee, Colombo and Kandy. Colombo – Trincomalee and Jaffna – Kandy highways cut at Dumbulla. 

On behalf of the Ka’li temple management, one of its trustees K. Luxmy had requested a few days of extended time to conclude the rituals and relocate the temple deities. But, the demolition was timed one day before the rituals were to commence, the management further said.

A so-called Urban ‘Development’ scheme of the Sri Lankan Defence Ministry, which is led by SL presidential sibling and Defense Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, has been introduced in the area together with the Buddha Boomi project of the extremist Buddhist monks.

Sometime back, ‘unidentified persons’ had destroyed the idol of the main deity, Kaa’li Amman, and the temple management placed a new idol.

Even though the Tamil residents were relocated from the area a few months ago, the temple was functioning with regular poojas.

The Hindu Maha Sabha, which condemned the demolition, in a statement issued on Wednesday questioned the credibility of the talk of ‘reconciliation’. The destruction of the temple reminded the brutal attacks against temples during the times of the Portuguese who were the first European colonialists to occupy the Jaffna and Kotte kingdoms in the island 400 years ago from Hindu kings.

  • WHY THE FUNDAMENTALIST BUDDHIST GROUP SUPPORTED BY PRESIDENT RAJAPAKSHE OF SRI LANKA IS COMMITTING SUCH NUISANCE OF ATTACKING HINDU CULTURE AND HERITAGE OF HINDU TAMIL OF SRI LANKA?
  • WHY GOVT. OF INDIA IS NOT TELLING A SINGLE WORD TO RAJAPAKSHE TO STOP PERSECUTION UPON TAMIL HINDUS STILL GOING ON IN SRI LANKA? 
  • WHY THE DALAI LAMA (WHILE GETTING ALL FACILITIES AND HONOR IN A HINDU SOIL – BHARAT) IS SAYING NOTHING FOR THE ATROCITIES AND KILLINGS OF TAMIL HINDUS BY A BUDDHIST GOVT. THERE IN SRI LANKA?
  • WHY THE HINDU ORGANISATIONS IN BHARAT ARE GIVING LESS IMPORTANCE TO TAMIL HINDUS OF SRI LANKA?
  • WHY SRI MANONMOHAN SINGH IS PREPARING TO JOIN ENSUING CHOGM CONFERENCE DESPITE OF RESENTMENT OF MAJOR TAMIL LEADERS OF BHARAT? 
  • STOP ATTACK ON TAMIL HINDUS AND HINDU TEMPLES BY FUNDAMENTAL BUDDHISTS.  PROTECT HINDU CULTURE AND TRADITION OF SRI LANKA. SAVE HINDU TAMILS IN SRI LANKA.

Why International Hindu Community is reluctant about the erasing Hindu Tamil People from Sri Lanka?

Posted by hinduexistence on January 23, 2013

Hindu Tradition  in Sri Lanka

Mainly Hindu Tamil Culture in Sri Lanka is facing a notorious Sinhala outrages. Crisis of a diminishing people out of multiple attack of ruling powers.

Sri Lanka erasing Tamil language, culture: Karunanidhi

The Hindu | January 20, 2013 | Chennai :: DMK president M. Karunanidhi has urged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi to take steps to ensure that the Sri Lankan government gave up, what he called, its programme of erasing Tamil language, culture and religion. He sought their help in putting an end to alleged drive by Sri Lankan authorities to rename Tamil villages with Sinhala names.

In identical letters to Dr. Singh and Ms. Gandhi, Mr. Karunanidhi said many more such tactics were being employed by the Sri Lankan government. “Tamils in Sri Lanka are living in an oppressive environment,” he alleged.

Bringing to their notice “disturbing developments” in Sri Lanka vis-à-vis the Tamils, he said: “The Sri Lankan government is now carrying out an intensive and systematic programme of erasing the Tamil language, culture and religion and diluting the concentration of Tamils in areas where they have historically been predominant. This manifests itself in the renaming of Tamil villages, redrawing of village, district and town boundaries, demolishing Hindu temples, non-allocation of funds to resettle and rehabilitate internally displaced Tamil families.”

He said: “The Sri Lankan government is also not allocating funds to schools, hospitals and other infrastructure where the Tamils live predominantly. It is also promoting Sinhala settlements on Tamil land and Sinhalese take over of the economic life of Tamil areas, which impoverishes the Tamils, and the deployment of army camps to intimidate them.” India had a moral obligation to stop this as it involved the eradication of a great culture and ancient religion in our backyard, he said.

Giving details, Mr. Karunanidhi said 89 villages had been renamed with Sinhala terms and 367 Hindu temples had been demolished. There were 148 mini and 13 main army camps in Mullaitivu district alone.

In Amparai district, the Tamil heritage village ‘Potthuvil’ was renamed as ‘Pothuvila’, and ‘Thirukovil’ was renamed as ‘Srikovila’ and ‘Tharavaikulam’ as ‘Tharakkulam’ while ‘Vagarai’ became ‘Vagara’ in Batticalao district and Nilaveli was renamed as Nilvaella, and Alankulam as Gemburuweva in Trincomalee district.

In Jaffna district, Vaddukottaii was renamed as Battakote and Paruththiththurai as Pethuruthoduva, and Nainatheevu as Nagatheeba. With name change, Kilinochchi became Granika, Mullaitivu Mooladoova and Vavuniya, Vannimava, he said.

Sri Lanka: Is Delhi Dumb?

Paper No. 5371| January 20, 2013 | Dr Kumar David | South Asia Analysis Group :: Dumb is used to describe a person who is bereft of brains, and of course its literal meaning is to be deprived of the faculty of verbal articulation.

Not many people fit both definitions at the same time, but the Government in Delhi has managed a Double First! The international community (IC) has expressed itself in no uncertain terms and the governments of the United States, UK, Canada, and even Australia in low key because of other sensitivities, International Commission of Jurists, UNHCR, International Crisis Group, Asian Human Rights Association, Bar Associations of several countries including UK and even Indian newspaper leader writers. There has been universal condemnation and expressions of shock at the flagrant violation of the constitution, an unheard of kangaroo-trial of a Chief Justice (CJ), a witch-hunt, and finally a lynching by Executive President Mahinda Rajapakse and the sycophant parliament that kneels before him. Through it all Delhi has remained brain dead and voiceless!

The common explanation is that India has enough on its plate both internally and with Pakistan and China that is does not want anymore and does not wish to intervene in the internal affairs of a neighbour. This is unacceptable when matters go so much out of hand that the fabric of democracy is ripped and freedom of life and liberty of the people of Lanka imperilled. Don’t take my word for it; here are abbreviated extracts from what an international body located in Geneva, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, with no particular axe to grind on behalf of CJ Shirani Bandaranayke, stated on 18 January.

 “The removal of the Chief Justice through a flawed process is gross interference in the independence of the judiciary and a calamitous setback for the rule of law in Sri Lanka. Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayke was served notice of her dismissal and removed from her chambers and official residence on 15 January, in spite of a Supreme Court ruling that the parliamentary procedure to remove her violated the Constitution.  Sri Lanka has a long history of abuse of executive power, and this latest step appears to strip away one of the last and most fundamental of the independent checks and balances.”

The jurist sworn in by the President as the new Chief Justice on 15 January, the former Attorney-General and Legal Advisor to the Cabinet, Mr. Mohan Peiris, has been at the forefront of a number of government delegations to Geneva in recent years to vigorously defend the Sri Lankan government’s position before the Human Rights Council and other human rights mechanisms. This raises obvious concerns about his independence and impartiality, especially when handling allegations of serious human rights violations by the authorities.

Just this morning we have received alarming reports from the Independent Bar of Sri Lanka of a series of death threats, acts of intimidation and even a couple of reported murder attempts against lawyers who have been supporting Chief Justice Bandaranayke, and the rulings of the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal on her case”. END QUOTE.

And this is by no means the strongest statement made by international commentators; it seems that the Government of Canada has decided to boycott the Commonwealth Heads meeting scheduled for late this year in Lanka and has been backed by the Canadian Bar Association in the decision.

It would be too repetitive to summarise what has happened in the last four months or to add to the avalanche of criticism. Indian readers will find a good cross section of views and comments and a ball-by-ball commentary of events on the Colombo Telegraph website (www.colombotelegraph.com/). Those who do not have time to go to original sources must take my word for it; flagrant trampling underfoot of the constitution, a rushed, botched “trial” by a parliamentary select committee that violated the norms of natural justice, and a comedy in parliament where a government Minister (Vasudeva Nanayakkara, MP) even shouted “We have told the judiciary to go to hell.”

And why did Rajapakse fling the Chief Justice out? The reason is that when the Divineguma Bill came to the Supreme Court for determination of its constitutionality, a three judge bench presided over by the CJ decided that it was inconsistent with the constitution and would need a 2/3 majority for passage. I discussed the Bill (now enacted) in this column on 26 October 2012 (“Queer happenings in Serendib”; Paper 5265) and pointed out that thereafter 64% of the budget of the Sri Lankan government is controlled by departments and/or ministries under three of the siblings (Mahinda, Basil and Gothabaya Rajapakse). The fourth sibling Chamal Rajapakse, parliamentary speaker, steered the impeachment through the House. His Master’s Voice cabinet ministers have now been instructed to tout his name as the next Prime Minister. Even a hat-trick is not enough for these power gluttons; they want all four top-order slots. >>Read details here.

India must change its Colombo policy, pleads Sri Lankan MP

Chennai | Jan 21, 2013 | (IANS) :: A prominent Sri Lankan MP wants India to change its Sri Lanka policy, warning that its hands off attitude was encouraging Colombo from meeting the legitimate political aspirations of the island’s Tamil minority.

Suresh Premachandran also said in a telephonic interview that the government of President Mahinda Rajapaksa was not sincere in having a dialogue with the elected leaders of the Tamil community.


“One could understand a certain Sri Lanka policy India followed when the LTTE (Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam) was there,” the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) member told IANS here.

“Now that the LTTE is no more, India must change its (Sri Lanka) policy,” he said. “Otherwise the Sri Lankan government’s attitude will not change.”

India solidly — both tacitly and openly — backed Colombo when the latter waged war on the LTTE, leading to its destruction in May 2009.

Since then, however, the Rajapaksa government has gone back on some of the promises it made to Indian leaders on pursuing a path of reconciliation with the Tamil community.

And Tamil leaders say that India is not putting enough pressure on Sri Lanka to implement what it told Prime Minister Manmohan Singh including on providing genuine autonomy to Tamil areas.

According to Premachandran, Sri Lanka was emboldened vis-a-vis the democratic world because of the support it gets from China.

“They (the regime) don’t care about the US and Europe, and they say they can manage India too,” said the MP, whose TNA is the main Tamil voice in parliament and which was earlier seen as the LTTE’s political arm. “They feel that with China with them, they can manage the UN too.”  >>Read details here.

Hindu Temples in Sri Lanka – A fainting reminiscent of a golden past ?

Published on 03 July, 2012 , Source -Tamilnet ::  The Hindu Tamil priest of renowned Aathi Paraasakthi temple in Valveddith-thu’rai was brutally assaulted by the occupying Sri Lanka military on Monday, a few minutes after the priest politely reminded a Sinhala soldier, who went inside the temple wearing boots, that the act was considered as showing disrespect to the deity and as desecrating the shrine.

The priest, brutally attacked by the military, was rushed to Valveddith-thu’rai hospital by the devotees of the temple at E’l’lang-ku’lam. Tension prevailed in the area following the offending act of the SL military, residents of the village said.

A SLA soldier, who was playing with his fellow troopers in the military-appropriated land of the temple, ran inside the temple after a ball.

The Tamil priest, who was conducting prayers inside the temple noticed the act of the soldier entering the temple wearing shoes and politely warned him on the hostile act.

Following this, the soldier went out and came with a team of soldiers, headed by their commander, and beat the priest causing several injuries to him.

The wounded priest was taken to the hospital by the devotees after the SL soldiers left the site.

The SLA had appropriated the land belonging to the temple and transformed it into a play ground for them.

The SLA had earlier destroyed the Tamil Heroes Cemetery for Vadamaraadchi region, which was situated near the temple.
