|Lifting of Ban
Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe wants to lift the Ban on LTTE. This
recalls us the blunder done by Previous UNP Regime led by Ranasinghe Premadasa
by supplying arms & ammunition to LTTE. Therefore, UNP govts are famous
for blunders in dealing with LTTE Terrorists in the past. Similarly, they
are going to repeat the same mistake once again.
Dear Editor, Pls. remind him or publish this letter on your website that
Tamils in Sri Lanka are leftovers of various invasions, smuggling
expeditions and have come to Sri Lanka to work. Therefore, they are not
indigenous to Sri Lanka, hence, There is no question of Homeland.On the
other hand, they are enjoying much more benefits than the majority community
in Sri Lanka at the moment which is a well known fact to everybody.
Finally, Mr. Ranil Wickramasinghe must recognise the fact that Sri Lankans
are not brought him to power in order to appease a gang of murderers who
attacked Sri Maha Bodhi, Temple of Tooth, cold bloodedly killed Buddhist
Monks & Innocent civillians, Heads of States of India and Sri Lanka.
In the circumstances, I would reiterate that if Ranil Wickramasinghe
and some of his ministers follow this line of action by siding with terrorists
and threatening the integrity of the country and National Security, he
will pay a price dearly very soon.

Thoughts of Moderates
Some enthusiastic in our beloved country is in a mighty hurry to jump
into the "peace mire" without seeing the consequences. The innocent
public face great danger at the helms of our shortsighted leadership and
their unwarranted decision-makings. The most unfortunate thing is this
miserable Pirabhakaran does not know the difference between the good and
the bad. Thus as per our old saying, the leech cannot be kept on
a mattress he is not happy to accept any peace. He is afraid of
peaceful living, which is alien to him and has no experience of. He is
terrified to emerge from the jungle hideouts to live with normal people,
shelving his armour, and accept cultural norms. Many of his enemies are
in wait throughout the country, for vengeance of his inhuman atrocities
and carnage brought upon them, during the past two decades, so he cannot
survive in civilized environment sans, his long-accustomed arms.
In a pensive mood it came to my mind lately, some ideas which bothered
me a lot, made very much inquisitive to know whether it's my imagination
or coincidence or any other phenomenon, behind these factual incidents.
1) During President J.R.Jayawardhane's time Indian P.M. Rajeev Gandhi,
tried to bring this megalomaniac, Pirabakaran to the negotiation table,
but the process was tumbled down abruptly. The end result was Loss of
a Prime Minister to India.
2) Then our next President Mr. R.Premadasa, tried pampering and rearing
the formidable terrorist outfit without knowing the imminent perils, and
tried to negotiate peace. The end result was Loss of a President to Sri
3) Third instance was by our lady President, following her dead- (murdered)
husband's friendship with some of these terror-mongers, and ensuing the
idealism he nurtured, tried her best to come to some compromise with this
monster. But what he did? Surprise attacks and more devastation than any
other govt. faced and the humiliation and degradation the country and
the govt. achieved, internally and internationally. The end result was
the Loss of an eye of the Lady and the country in deeper social and economic
quagmire and misery.
4) Now the latest heroism, by our new Prime Minister with his church propagandists
and so called "moderate Tamil leaders" are now in fray with
the moderate Singhalese, rather than the terrorists to uplift their living
condition and pave way for their long waited "Elam".
Who knows the end result? We wish him all the success and hope no more
loss of lives especially of "Political Elite Hierarchy".
Remember the Hon.P.M's message to the nation on the 47th annual convention
of U.N.P at the town hall. "I will not allow anyone to set the country
on fire again in the guise of protesting against a solution to the war.
My sincere appeal is, that even though we all crave for peaceful, comfortable
and blissful living, we have to remember with whom we are dealing with,
through past experience and approach with utmost care and utter shrewdness.
