Sri Lanka belongs to Sinhala.

France belongs to French, Germany belongs to Germans, Italy belongs to Italians,England belongs to English, India belongs to Indians. (America there is a problems because America belongs to native Americans). However, America belongs to Americans. Sri Lanka belongs to Sinhala.  In France there are many minorities  Algerians , Polonaise, Africans etc. But they are all French and accept the French Language, its customs and are educated in same schools for the French childen. It is the same with America, Germany, Italy, England, Spain and so on.

The minorities in  France, Germany, Italy, or England do not ask for language rights, and they all speak French the language of the country , they do not sing the French National Anthems in any other language, but in French. The minorities in France accept the French national flag. The Constitutions of these European countries  have their  religions written into it.  It accepts no other Religion.  But the minorities have the right to profess their own religion as long as it does not affect the peace and unity of the country.  The Minorities in these countries have no political parties of their own. They join the main political parties of the country without distinction of their origin.  The children attend same schools and there are no special schools for the minority communities.

So why should it be different in Sri Lanka, which had been a country of the Sinhala from the beginning.  The minority Tamils in reality, not according to fake history being written by  the Tamils, came to Sri Lanka as marauders, plunderers and conquerors.  They came and destroyed our cities and left them in ruins. 

There was King Elara 205 years before the present era, who  set up a Kingdom in Anuradhapura  and ruled for 44 years until he was ousted and Sri Lanka was united under one flag by King Dutugamunu.  And then there was Kalinga Magha in 1215 AD  a most destructive Tamil tyrant who set up a regime in Polonnaruva and ruled  for 12 years .  He was  the most destructive man who pillaged and burnt Buddhist places of worship and killed Buddhits monks and built Hindu Kovils.  He was again defeated in battle and chased away by King Vijayabahu.

Tamils had been the most destructive occupiers in Sri Lanka. Even today the Sri Lanka Tamils like Sumandiran, Sampanthan, Premachandran, Shivalingam, Sumanthirant  and so on  are Tamils with the ancient  mentality of Tamil invaders, marauders, plunderers and destructors like Kalinga Magha.  They will not stand for unity, development of Sri Lanka and for the preservation of its culture. They are separatists who will never accept reconciliation.

In the face of the invasive minded Sri Lanka Tamils the Sinhala Buddhists should unite to protect Sri Lanka’s culture, and its historic places.  Sri Lanka governments  had been giving into the Tamils far too much and for far too long, and these ungrateful Tamils dare say that Tamils suffered genocide under Sinhala governments since 1948. This comes from a Tamil man-Wignesvaran, who was born amoung the Sinhala, studied  with the Sinhala, lived his professional life as a judge amoung the Sinhala and married his sons to Sinhala women. How can the Sinhala people keep trusting the Tamils ? 

Any body who had lived long enough in Sri Lanka would know that the Tamils had not been treated differently from  other citizens. They have been given  all the rights enjoyed by the rest of the population. But their nature is such that they ask for more giving nothing in return to develop the country or protect it against its enemies. 

Next the Muslims who  came to Sri Lanka only in the 12th Century. When the Muslim traders  were being driven away from the southern seas by the Portuguese, they came to the Sinhala King Rajasinghe II and asked for refuge and protection. The  King allowed them to Settle down in the East and even  allowed them to marry local women. The present day Muslims in Sri Lanka are the  descendents of these early Muslim settlers, who now follow the Tamils asking for separate rights, and illegally clear forest reserves to create Muslim settlements.

The Muslims should if they are a grateful people  be more close to the Sinhala people. But it is the Muslims leaders like Rauf  Hakhim, and Rishad Baduieen who  take the lead in helping the Muslims to occupy  ancient ruins like the Kurugala caves and clear  the Wilpattu  Natural Forest reserves. These are  parts of our national heritage, which belong to every one. But showing no respect to these national heritage to preserve and protect it shows that the Muslims like the Tamils have no patriotic loyalty to Sri Lanka. They are also turning out to be a party to Tamil invasive mentality who want to divide the motherland for the satisfaction of their racial demands.

There cannot be any reconciliation with these two communities who are evidently anti-reconciliation. Under these circumstances it is difficult to understand why USA and the Western countries keep on demanding reconciliation.  If there is to be a reconciliation these two communities should  relinquish their anti reconciliatory demands, and take an oath of allegiance to a unitary Sri Lanka, and renounce their separatist demands for federalist constitution or a separate province for one  ethnic group.

There was an interesting discussion in Derana TV Aluth Paralimenthuwa with Attorney Ali Sabri amoung others. President’s Counsel Ali Sabri said that for real reconciliation Sri Lanka should be like it was before separate Schools for ethnic communities were opened. He said that had even asked Zahira College to give 10 percent of admission to students from other communities.

That was true studying in the same school where you had children from Sinhala , Tamil and Muslim communities there was a communal unity unimaginable today. I the writer still has school friends in Madawala, and when  we meet we do not fail to hug each other to the utter surprise of other Muslims present  that had not known that unity.

But I cannot accept what Ali Sabri said was genuine. I feel it was only for the TV Cameras. In reality Muslims  have changed and care less whether Sinhala is the majority.

In that same Dererna TV discussion the senior journalist  Mohan Samaranayake said that we cannot claim that Sri Lanka is the land of Sinhala Buddhists as Buddha himself had refused ownership of any thing.  But the Buddha was the enlightened Compassionate one that belongs to all beings without race or colour. We are still unenlightened beings and as Sinhala we cannot  refuse that Sri Lanka is the land of the Sinhala and all others are citizens of that land most welcome and accepted as equals, provided they do not claim ownership to the whole of Sri Lanka or parts of it.

The President Sirisena likes to make speeches. But if he does not keep surveying his Prime Minister and the UNP who are slowly preparing to sell the country to USA, the West and India with his ego centric attitude getting into the shoes of a pseudo Dictator, Sirisena will not have a country to lead as its President. Maithripala  is  not aware that Ranil has reappointed his “buddy” Arjun Mahendran the sacked Governor of Central Bank to another high post in the Government.

The self satisfied Maithripala Sirisena does not know that his Prime Minister has give six acres of prime land in Colombo for the construction of an American military base for its Marine Forces. Ranil Wickramasinghe  is also proposing to  lease half of the oil containers in Trincomalee to India.  Ranil Wickrmasinghe who cares less for Sri Lanka its culture or Buddhist religion, is planning to become the executive Prime Minister and the President in 2020.

Maithripala Sirisena the President who is blissfully ignorant of his Prime Minister’s deals with USA, the West and India  has  asked the National Integration and Reconciliation Ministry to draw up a draft national policy on integration and reconciliation.  Maithripala cannot understand that the Tamils in Sri Lanka do not want reconciliation. Further proof of this comes from the  Jaffna University students savagely assaulting the Sinhala undergraduates.

Now Sirisena is planning how to stop the “Pada Yatra” the “foot walk”  proposed by the Joint Opposition.  He says that his dissent with the former President began with the Moragaskanda Project.  Maithripala Sirisena who cannot control his anger and hatred is not fit to lead Sri Lanka as its President.

Sirisena  should take a lesson from Mahinda Rajapakse who was gentle and humble (mudu anathimani as in Karaniya metta Sutta) to offer Maithripala Sirisen the Presidency of the SLFP after he was defeated at the election. No good can come to Maithripala Sirisena if his only intention is to take revenge from the good ex-President Mahind Rajapaksa.

His assertion that his dissent with the former President  began with  the Moragaskanda issue is nonsense, because Maithripala was lured by Chandrika Kumararunga to become the Common Opposition  Presidential candidate.  It is greed for power, fear and an inferiority complex that has made him  revengeful towards Mahinda Rajapakse.

President Sirisena  is making up other stories to cover up his hypocracy. Sirisena  is jealous of the  popularity of the ex Presiden Mahinda Rajapakse.Therefore, he allows Ranil Wickramasinghe pursue with his FCID to prosecute Mahinda Rajapakse and his Family, and all those he consider a danger to his popularity.

The masses of the people, other than some of the English Educated Colombians, the Tamils and the Muslims,  the bulk of te Sinhala Buddhists are with the Ex-President Mahinda Rajapakse. Mahinda Rajapakse will be theirs’ and their generation’s  heroic leader. Maithripala Sirisena will never reach that height of popularity.

Maithripala Sirisena should take stock of the situation of the Country and stop trying to please and win over the Tamils and Muslims taking away the rights of the Sinhala People. With a Prime Minster in control of the Government, this is not the time to write a new Constitution. If Prime Minister is allowed to do as he likes, he will  have a New Constitution prepared  to conform to the wishes of USA, the West and India

Ranil  has already his man at the head of the preparation of the Constitution-Jayampathy Wickramaratne. He is the wrong man to handle the constitution making process. He is anti Mahinda Rajapakse and pro Ranil Wickramasinghe. He has no sense of cultural and historical importance of Sinhala people in Sri Lanka. He speaks of a country acceptable to all ethnic groups.

Jayamapath Wickramaratne showed even his inability to discuss calmly  and answer the  questions put to him by the journalist Favaz Shaukelali at the  discussion in the MTV News line held  on 22 July, 2016.  Jayamapath Wickramaratne has no independent objective political views.

The Constitution should be prepared only when the country is settled down and under a leader who could understand the importance of a Constitution for Nation building, without leaving room for separatist intentions of unpatriotic communities take away the legitimate rights of the Sinhala people to whom  Sri Lanka belongs.

In writing a new constitution  the Sinhala flag, brought down by the British colonialists to raise their Union Jack, should find its rightful place. For that the two stripes representing the Tamils and Muslims should be removed, as it is a mutilation of that Sinhala flag which was brought  down by the British in 1815. It should also give the rightful place to the National  Anthem, which should be sung in Sinhala.  A new Constitution for Sri Lanka if necessary should not have the 13Amendment. It should give Sinhala Language the Official Status, and a clause to protect Buddhism.

However, one does not see at all the necessity to write a new Constitution to Sri Lanka, specially now that the country is communally divided as it had never been before. The 1978 Constitution had served its purpose and it is best to continue with it with necessary amendments as and when required.

No country in the world writes a new constitution every time a new government is formed in the country after an election. Why should it be different for Sri Lanka ?

There was no War in Sri Lanka therefore there were neither war crimes nor violation of human rights.

The Prince Zeid bin ra’ad Al Hussain, as an intelligent man if using his unbiased mind may understand why Sri Lanka has neither committed war crimes nor violated human rights. It was because there was never a war in Sri Lanka. Wars are between countries and bombs and gunfire from the warring parties  may kill innumerable number of civilians and violate human rights. It happened in the World War I and World War II. It happened in USA and Iraq war.  There was a tribunal  in Nuremburg to  try the war criminals. In a war there are two sides or more countries may join one or the other. The warring parties of both sides kill civilians as well as the soldiers from each side.  Both warring parties are equally responsible for the deaths in war. Those killings are the war crimes and violation of human rights.

Sri Lanka never had a war.  “War” is a wrong word to use in the military operations of Sri Lanka Armed Forces against the terrorists.  In Sri Lanka there was terrorism, the terrorists came from amoung its own people. They were  Tamil youth. These young people  were taken over by India and trained in the jungles of South India as terrorists and released later in the North of Sri Lanka to carry out terrorism to divide the country to establish a Tamil Eelam. 

Sri Lanka used its Armed Forces to eliminate the terrorists. In this military operation it was fighting against the terrorists, not against the Tamil civilians, or not in a country away fro Sri Lanka. It was an internal military operation to stop continued ruthless terrorist activities for thirty years within the country .

Unlike in a conventional war, in a military operation by the armed forces of a country  against  terrorism within the country, it is to stop  crimes being  committed by the terrorists against its people. Therefore the Armed Forces of the Government were fighting to remove terrorism which was causing damage to human life and property.

The military operations of the Armed Forces of the Sri Lanka government was a means to protect its people and the country. If there had been deaths  to civilians,  it was in the course of eliminating a great danger to the country-terrorism, which would have  caused greater number of deaths in the future as it had  been in the past.

In a conventional war  there are certain regulations and agreed conventions such as the Geneva convention the breach of which would be interpreted as war crimes or violation of human rights. After the World War II there were military tribunals  held by allied forces for Nuremberg trials  for the prosecution of the members of  the political, military and judicial leadership of Nazi Germany who planned and carried out the Holocaust and other war crimes.

Sri Lanka needs no  tribunals in the lines of those established for Nuremberg Trials to try our soldiers and the political leadership that carried out the military operations to eliminate terrorism in Sri Lanka. Our soldiers  and those who gave leadership to carryout the military operations against the terrorists, did a necessary service to stop a thirty years of suffering  and massacres of innocent civilians by the terrorists.

If there were civilians deaths  in the course of those military operations it was unfortunate. They were  collateral and our Armed Forcers cannot be tried for war crimes for the deaths caused during the military operations, in the aftermath of the elimination of terrorism as it was in the course of carrying out their military duties in the protection of the country and the people. Such courts may be acceptable in a conventional war between countries and not in  military operations to rid the country of terrorism.

Prince Zeid bin ra’ad Al Hussain despite being the Commissioner of UN Human Rights Commission, should use the intelligence of the man he is,  to see through the ridiculous move of USA to pass a resolution against Sri Lanka for war crimes and human rights in the elimination of a ruthless group of terrorists. 

If there had been deaths to  civilians caught in the cross fires between the government Armed Forces and the terrorists in the course of that military operation the responsibility for those deaths fall wholely on the terrorists who held the 300,000 Tamil civilians as a human shield for their own protection, and the Sri Lanka Armed forces cannot be called upon by any one to face a tribunal to answer for those deaths. The Armed Forces in fact saved the lives of those 300,000 Tamil civilians kept as human shields by the terrorists in a remarkable humanitarian rescue operation.

The Sri Lanka Armed Forces were carrying out their duties in the service of the country to bring peace and security for all communities in Sri Lanka including the Tamil Community which now take exception for the elimination of terrorism.

The Tamils of Sri Lanka and their kith in the Tamil diaspora are under the delusion that they are not a minority Community in Sri Lanka,  despite they being just a 11 percent of the population as  against a 75 percent of the Sinhala population.  They presume they have the same rights as the Sinhala population. Not satisfied living in a Sinhala country as a minority they have even begun re-writing the history of Sri Lanka to claim that they had been in Sri Lanka even before the advent of the Sinhala. 

USA seems to be giving credence to this false assertion of the Tamils as they the Americans in USA as well as Canadians, and Australians  have intruded into countries that did not belong to them and decimated  its original inhabitants –the Native Americans in USA, First Nation in Canada and Aboriginals in Australia, to claim ownership to those lands and now have become nations of their own of those countries.  Perhaps USA thinking of  its  own experience wants to establish the Sri Lanka Tamils as a Nation in Sri Lanka by decimating, weakening or  dispersing the Sinhala population, as they have done to the native Americans.

How else could we understand the willingness of USA and the West going all out to demand  the Government of Sri Lanka for reconciliation with the Tamils, accept even their terrorism in Sri Lanka justifiable, and call the Government of Sri Lanka to set up a Tribunal with foreign judges and prosecutors to put our Armed Forces on trial for war crimes as they did to the political, military and judicial leadership of Nazi Germany ?

Incidentally,  AlJazeera had a discussion with A Sri Lanka Minister D.M.Swaminathan, Sivanathan, Subramaniam Sentilkumar of the British  Tamil Forum and Bhavani Fonseka of Centre for Policy Alternative about  reconciliation and distribution of land occupied by the Armed Forces to Tamil owners. Thousands of acres of land that had been occupied by the Armed Forces have  already been given back to the people.  The British  Tamil Forum representative wanted more lands to be handed back to the people and claim that  about 150000 Army personal in the north should be removed.  

This is how the Tamil diaspora is using the Western media for their purpose to  wrench off more benefits to the Tamil Community minimizing  the importance of all the benefits the Sri Lanka Government  had been giving to the Tamils of North and East since the elimination of terrorism. The Tamil Diaspora that creates most of the  problems feeding false information to the International Community has contributed  nothing  for the development or the welfare of the Tamil Community in Sri Lanka.

What prevents reconciliation of Communities in Sri Lanka is this interference of Western Media and the Tamils of the diaspora who are for the most part going on information received from third parties without having any idea about the ground situation.

The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Prince Zeid bin ra’ad Al Hussain should now evaluate the situation independently as he is the one who presented  the special report, titled "Promoting Reconciliation, Accountability and Human Rights in Sri Lanka",   without first  discussing it  with the Government of Sri Lanka.

The matter as a whole should not be the concern of the UN as the elimination of terrorism cannot be considered a war. It is against the principle on which first the League of Nations and then the UNO was set up. UNO was set up to “save succeeding generations from the scourge of war… to re-affirm  faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person,in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small….”

The most disastrous than war is terrorism, because terrorists show “ no respect to fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person…” No rules could be set as  to “ how to conduct terrorism.” And agreements cannot be entered into with terrorists as to how to carry out terrorism !!!

The  terrorism is  out side the Charter of UNO which came into effect in June,1945 , therefore it is wrong for the UNO to interfere in the settlement of terrorism  within  a country. The fundamental human rights referred to in the Charter of the UNO is in respect of breach of human rights in the conduct of wars and not terrorism.

The wars as referred to above are between countries, and terrorism is against governments by a group of armed men who act on their own. Therefore the UN should not  misinterpret the UNCharter to interfere into sovereign states  in the settlement of terrorism or to call for accountability for the consequences in the elimination of  terrorism  which is a sovereign State’s  internal problem.

Therefore, USA has no moral right to move a resolution against Sri Lanka calling for accountability and accusing its Armed Forces for war crime and violation of human rights, and the report of the UN Commissioner Prince Zeid is equally uncalled for .

The UN Commissioner for human rights Prince Zeid bin ra’ad Al Hussain, instead of calling the Sri Lanka Government to set up a hybrid court to prosecute the Armed Forces of Sri Lanka for war crimes, should point out to the USA and the countries that sponsored the resolution against Sri Lanka,  that no country or the UN has the right to question Sri Lanka on the elimination of terrorism, therefore the USA should withdraw its resolution even at this stage, and that he will himself withdraw the report he presented.

As it has been correctly declared in the preamble to the constitution of UNESCO, “since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defences of peace must be constructed “.  Hence it is  the Government  and the people of Sri Lanka that should search within themselves  the means to bring the Communities within the country together  to find a solution to create unity amoung themselves to usher in peace for social welfare and economic development of Sri Lanka.

UNO is not serving the purpose for which it was setup, but getting involved in internal affairs of Sovereign States which the UNO has no right to do unless invited by the Sovereign State.  In the case of Sri Lanka UNO interfered to accuse Sri Lanka and  appointed a committee to make a report on Sri Lanka which the Secretary General Ban Ki Moon said was for his personal use. 

But the document called the Darusman Report was finally made official accusing Sri Lanka on the finding of the report.  The Darusman Report was not reliable as the report was made on evidence collected  from third parties and which were biased and accused without eye witness accounts atrocities supposed to have been committed by the Armed Forces. It was highly improper to have released the report which was prepared for the use of the Secretary General as an official report of the UN.

The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Prince Zeid bin ra’ad Al Hussain, should take note that under no circumstances a report should be accepted if  the names of witnesses who provided information for the preparation of the report has not been divulged as such a document is not legal and raises doubt about the honesty of its intention-its bona fides. The same can be said of the report of the UN Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid , “Promoting Reconciliation, Accountability and Human Rights in Sri Lanka ”.

What is necessary is not to have hybrid courts to prosecute  the Armed Forcers of Sri Lanka for war crimes, but to tell the Tamil Community that reconciliation is not having separate rights within Sri Lanka according to the ethnicity of each community, but to live in communal unity with all Communities without segregation according to religion, language or race.

Minority and Majority Communities in other  countries of the world are not a new phenomenon.  But the minorities  in other countries respect  the rights, customs, language, laws and religion of the majority community, and accept  to live as citizens sharing the rights of the Majority without demanding the majority of that country to accept the language, laws and customs of the minority community. There is a mutual respect between the Majority Community and the minority community.  It is how it should be and it’s the role of the UNO and  the UN Human Rights Commission to make the Sri Lanka Tamil Community understand that fundamental conditions of living as minority in a country where the majority is not Tamil.

That is the role of the UNO, because we cannot accept the USA or the West to do it because they have political interest in dividing populations in countries either by war or by other subtle means using Human Rights as a tool for example to maintain their leadership.  It is for that reason the forefathers of UNO set up that august Institution, which today  has been made what it should not be-an institution to divide populations in the interest of more powerful member States.

It is perhaps now up to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Prince Zeid bin ra’ad Al Hussain, to call to order what is in disorder, and demand USA and the sponsors to withdraw  the  anti Sri Lanka resolution they presented and passed  at the UN HR Council. .  The whole resolution against Sri Lanka presented to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva by the USA as well as the report , “Promoting Reconciliation, Accountability and Human Rights in Sri Lanka ” of UNHCHR Prince Zeid. are based mostly on the Darusman Report an unofficial report made official by the Secretary General Ban Ki Moon in the interest of USA and the West to make Sri Lanka what the USA , the West and the Tamils of the diaspora want it to be- a communally divided failed state, dependent on USA and the West with part of it separated in the interest of the Tamil Community.
