I hoisted the National Flag. I thanked the former President Mahinda Rajapakse  for his determination to end terrorism. I thanked him for finally eliminating terrorism.  I thanked him for giving the necessary political leadership for the war against terrorism and for its success. I thanked Gotabhaya Rajapakse for coordinating the armed forces and taking the best men and women to defeat the ruthless evil forces of terrorism.

I prayed to those men of the Armed Forces- officers, and soldiers who made  this victory over the evil forces of terrorism possible. 

I lit a lamp. I sent waves of loving  kindness and compassion for the  health, happiness and contentment of  those living  valiant soldiers and transferred merit to those who  had given their lives to save the motherland from terror.

Today is the Victory Day on which every Sri Lankan should think of the 30 years of suffering under terrorism a  disaster that was terminated thanks to our Armed Forces. It is the day that we should pray that  Sri Lanka  would never again allow terrorism to raise its head.

We Sinhala Buddhists have no remembrance days.  We have death anniversaries where we transfer merit to the departed.

Today is the Victory Day   for every one who loves  Sri Lanka our motherland  to celebrate paying homage to our  valiant soldiers who faced forces of terrorism of unknown strength and defeated them  to redeemed the country from thirty years of  suffering under terror.

If the Tamils in the North and the East did not go through that suffering , well and good.  But we  our people in the boarder villages, our Ministers, our Priests and poor Buddhist devotees, school children, even passengers in buses, soldiers on vacation, Army and Police officers,  died under that miserable terrorism. That terror spread out to thirty years  and through out that period  there wasn’t perhaps a day that passed without some one  killed by the terrorists.

At last we can breath the free air of our  county Sri Lanka, where there is no fear of being shattered by a claymore bomb placed by a terrorist.

Ranil Wickramasinghe and his UNP Ministers do not celebrate the Victory Day. 

They cannot as they are  no patriots who love this country.  They would not have ever risked their lives to save it. 

They  of the UNP laughed at the valiant men of the Armed Forces who were risking their lives to save Sri Lanka.  Ranil Wickramasinghe said that Toppiagal is a barren rock, Lakshman Kiriella said, any fool can fight a war, and Ravi Karunanayakam said  the Armed Forces are going to Madavachchi saying they are  going to Kilinochchi.

How can these men of the UNP ever give credit to our Armed Forces, for those great deeds they have accomplished ?  Ranil Wickramasinghe and his UNP Ministers are living in  Sri Lanka and looking at USA.?

Maithripala Sirisena who said he acted as the Minister of Defence too has no Victory Day.  It is not by chance that he walked into a den of traitors.

In Sri Lanka the Victory Day should be synonymous with peace and freedom.   It should be a day of celebration every where, where every one from school children  to the young and old should participate.

UNP may remove Victory Day from the calendar but it will remain in the heart of every one of us and should be retold to generations after, so that Victory Day will be remembered generations after generations.

France has a Victory Day to  celebrate the embarkation of the Allied Forces on the Normandy beach to chase away the Germans from the Occupation of France.  

But our Armed Forces eliminated the terrorists single handed without the aid of any other Nation.  Therefore ours is a greater Victory Day.
