What has hit Sri Lanka to consider South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission as a model ?

 The Sri Lanka political leaders who mooted this strange idea of taking South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission as a model for another Commission in Sri Lanka, should immediately go to a  hospital to get their brains examined.  We have enough problems with our own LLRC with its uncalled for recommendations , on top of which these brain damaged Sri Lanka Government Officials want another Commission in the model of the South Africa Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

What relation has Sri Lanka’s political issue with that of South Africa.  Without going into details and statistics what happened in South Africa is that a small community of whites, controlled the majority South Africans , taking away their land and depriving them the citizenship of their own country.  The South Africa’s self imposed White regime confined the native south Africans in  Homelands for Blacks –Bantustans which were shanties without water, light and sanitation.  They had to have their own passports to travel from Bantustans to White South Africa to work and earn a  meagre living doing menial and  inferior services to the white masters.

This never happened in Sri Lanka.  The Tamils were never segregated, and the Sri Lanka Government was not carrying out an  apartheid system of Administration.  The Tamils from North to South and West to East of Sri Lanka were “our people” treated equally with the other communities.  The Sri Lanka Government provided the North as much as to the South with infrastructure developments,  water, electricity, sanitary systems, education, health facilities and employment opportunities and above all provides the length and breath of the Island with security,  employing its Armed Forces which have become a people friendly Security Force.

The Tamils in Jaffna, the TNA and the Chief Minister Wigneswaran should take special note that,  the “…….Tamils of Jaffna do not donate blood because of their high caste mentality and majority of blood supplied to the Government hospitals in the North is by the Sri Lankan Armed Forces who donate blood on a voluntary basis regularly to ensure the blood bank (in Jaffna) is not short of blood. It must also be said that Muslims too do not donate blood but they are recipients of blood by Sinhalese. A little appreciation for this gesture is quite in order instead of always finding fault with the Sinhalese.” Shenaly.D.Waduge.

Sri Lanka should not debase itself accepting any foreign systems of Reconciliation Commissions to satisfy the interfering West and America which readily swallow lock, stock and barrel any horror story the anti Sri Lanka pro-terrorist Tamil diaspora relates,  with money to go,  supported by  UK Channel 4 the specialist in making videos of falsified news stories.

It is  the blood money of the terrorists that rules the West and not the truth.

The West and America do not want the truth about developing nations, because it is the falsehood about them which provides the material to keep these countries poor and dependent on the west.  Therefore they welcome fabricated falsehood to accuse developing countries and Sri Lanka for violation of human rights or war crimes, and interfere in to the internal affairs destabilising the countries  and putting people against people.
Ginsburg painted Torture Abu Ghraib (oil, 46×32) from life,  Americans who were responsible for inhuman torture of their prisoners are now accusing Sri Lanka for violation of human rights at end of a terrorist war.

The TNA and its patrons the Tamil Diaspora, the World Tamil Forum  and the fake TGTE sing in unison the praise of South Africa and ANC.  The TGTE had even got the ANC to mention their presence as an Organisation at the Funeral Ceremony of  late Nelson Mandela.  But what connection  have they to South Africa and how can the Tamil ethnic  problem they are mounting brick by brick be resolved with South Africa’s intervention.  

From what we see South Africa’s problem  has not been resolved and much has to be done before it could intervene in Sri Lanka on behalf of  the Anti Sri Lanka Tamil Diaspora and its extension the TNA.

Nelson Mandela’s great feat was the ending  of the reign of an  illegal regime set up by white foreigners which  plundered the wealth of the native South Africans and deprived them  their right to occupy freely their own motherland.  But, having changed the white regime Nelson Mandela failed to give back to the South African people the pride of being a Nation owning its own motherland  cultivating their proper land and  managing their wealth for the benefit of the South Africans.

Nelson Mandela’s political vision was short sighted.  He did not want a confrontation with the whites, but did not plan for an equitable distribution of wealth, to ameliorate the living conditions of the people.  He did not have even the wisdom to take over the direction of the country for more than one term and left without offering to the South African political leadership a long term plan to transfer the wealth of the Nation  from its former owners back to its people while retaining a peaceful co-existence of  a white and black citizenry.

What has the Truth and reconciliation Commission given to the South Africans, the rich are still rich and the poor are worst off.  The shanties continue to exist and the crime rate is in the increase.  It is said “ despite the end of apartheid in 1994, South Africa has the highest income inequality in the world, a level that has remained relatively unchanged between 1990 and 2011.  This is one of the biggest challenges facing the country and has a detrimental impact on the country’s economic development and business environment.”

The following is a list a think tank ( made showing the problems South Africa is faced with today:
  1. Too few South Africans in work
  2. The quality of school education for most black people is sub standard
  3. Poorly located and inadequate infrastructure limits social inclusion and faster economic growth
  4. Spatial challenges continue to marginalise the poor
  5. South Africa's growth path is highly resource intensive and hence unsustainable
  6. The ailing public health system confronts a massive disease burden
  7. The performance of the public service is uneven
  8. Corruption undermines state legitimacy and service delivery
  9. South Africa remains a divided society.
Another says:  “ Current problems in South Africa include widespread poverty, despite the BEE (black economic empowerment) initiatives, high crime rate, high unemployment, and rising xenophobia directed at African migrant workers from other countries. Authorities have also noted a rise in brain drain. Moreover, one of the lesser known but major problems is that of land redistribution as farmland in South Africa is predominantly owned by whites. ”

Is this from where Sri Lanka is going to  find ways to end the “ethnic problem” about which the TNA and its Tamil Diaspora is shouting high and low , appointing another Commission  modelled on the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission ?

TNA are just political dreamers without any plans for governance and administrations or any idea about how to set about carrying out work projects.  Their only means of survival and only ideas of development of  the north and bring prosperity to the people is not getting down to work harnessing the know how of the south and cooperating with the government , but carrying on a confrontational  rather than a conciliatory relation ship with the South and the Government.  That is their modus operandi  for a continued  political existence.  To which the Chief Minister Wigneswaran blindly contributes.

In that confrontation they perhaps expect Government giving in by making proposals of development for which they may get  aid from the Tamil Diaspora and the anti Sri Lanka Western countries, in addition to that of the Government of Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka should stop giving into the TNA and the Diaspora and the threats of the anti Sri Lanka countries of the West.

The South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission is no model for Sri LankaSri Lanka has its own LLRC and it should go on doing whatever is possible with it. The rest the government should initiate without  awaiting the approval of the TNA or the  Interfering West.

The UNHRCouncil Sessions are an annual exercise and its major function is to pass resolutions against Sri Lanka.  If the worst come to worst Sri Lanka should give notice and withdraw from the UNHRC, instead of wasting money and time preparing to answer accusations it will be levelling against Sri Lanka every year, without ever wanting to accept any explanation.
