To-day on the day that marks another anniversary of the end of a thirty years of ruthless terrorism, we remember with gratitude our former President Mahinda Rajapakse, Gotabhaya Rajapakse and all those who were around them and those live to tell the tale, and the valiant soldiers some who gave their lives , others who gave their limb and blood, and those soldiers of ours who have become our heroes –the fountain of life for thousands of lives which would have been victims of terrorism if not for them.
We are also grateful to those mothers who gave to the armed Forces to fight against terrorism their sons or daughters, and to those widows who sacrificed their husbands, and those children who lost their fathers in the fight against terrorisms to liberate our motherland and to assure that it remains an undivided united country, and above all for bringing peace and security to all our people Tamil, Muslim and Sinhala. They gave us hope to live, they protected our religion and culture. We shall always remain grateful to our Armed Forces under the great leadership given to them by Gotabhaya Rajapakse and the Political leadersip given by our great leader the former President of Sri Lanka Mahinda Rajapakse.
We also remember the then Commander of Armed Forces Sarath Fonceka for the part he played in the military operations against terrorism, despite his turning his back on those who made a Military victory possible over terrorism, and his inability blinded through anger, forgetful of good breeding to control his language, and be worthy of the role he played to save mother Lanka from terrorism.
We also think of political leaders, Ministers, Officers of the Armed Services, Police officers, constables and others who died being victims of terrorist Suicide bombs, claymore bombs, snipers and grenade throwers.
We also think of thousands of innocent men ,women, children, and also unknown numbers of Buddhist monks who were murdered by the terrorists, being shot, hacked to death, blasted in bombs, or burnt alive by the terrorists.
We also think with pride and gratitude our armed forces for having rescued 300 thousand Tamil civilians kept as human shield by the terrorists under most difficult conditions carrying only small arms against the heavy Guns turned on them by the ruthless terrorists who cared little for the lives of the Tamil civilians.
We think with gratitude our young mostly Buddhist Sinhala Soldiers, who fought for their motherland with dedication to save every one of the people of
without discrimination against the Sinhala, Tamil, or Muslims. Sri Lanka
Unfortunately a Government calling itself Yahapalanaya has come to power today and they seem to have forgotten our valiant Soldiers, their officers and the political leadership given to them by our former President Mahinda Rajapakse, who gave us all a breath of life when our innocent people saw and heard of deaths of compatriots, kith or kin practically every day for nearly thirty long years, without hope that there would be an end to that ruthless terrorism.
This Government led by Maithripala Sirisen and Ranil Wickramasinghe has said no to celebrate this day of commemoration of the end of a thirty year war of terrorirsm which brought happiness to every man, woman and child who were freed from living in fear of death under terrorism, the day Sri Lanka was saved from forced division, and continued death to those who were fighting and those who were innocent.
Maithripala Sirisena elected as President of Sri Lanka thanks to the Tamil and Muslim votes, and the Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe appointed Prime Minister by him and their Government, have decided today to sympathise with the terrorists that killed and maimed our people, rather than remember gratefully the Armed Forces that gave their lives, limbs, and blood to save Mother Lanka and allow the Tamils, Muslims and Sinhala to live peacefully.
Maithripala Sirisena, Ranil Wickramasinghe and their Government have sold their birth right to please the Tamil Politicians, the Tamil Diaspora that financed and supported terrorism, USA, and the West working under instructions from the Tamil Diaspora for the strength of their votes for political support.
