Latest 'kolam'- Tigers bearing Atapirikara instead of arms

Ramanie de Zoysa

It is ironic that eight TNA Tiger puppet MPs should come to Kandy bearing Atapirikara to visit the Chief Buddhist prelate of the country, the Malwatte Mahanayake Thero when the Wanni Tigers have been protesting in Trincomalee demanding an immediate halt to the construction of Buddhist temples and resettlement of Sinhala refugees in the East.

The North has already been cleared of Buddhist places of worship and Sinhala people by the LTTE and apparently now it is time to ethnically cleanse the East! Only the Tamil racists of the TNA and the LTTE would have have the duplicity and the gall to front up in the most revered Buddhist citadel, Kandy, with contrived smiles and atapirikara to drum up support for a racially defined Tamil self- governing authority in nearly 40% of the land and the sea coast, at the same time robbing the Sinhala buddhists of the country of their right to live and practice their religion in any part of the country.

While the Buddhist compassion must have allowed the Mahanayake Thero to grant an audience with these ballot box stuffing fake 'parliamentarians', the prelate would be well advised to destroy the offerings of atapirikara which has obviously been acquired out of the same pool of funds that procure arms to slaughter and dispossess innocent Sinhalese and Muslims of the country.

I also question the wisdom of the security personnel charged with the safety of the Chief prelate and the temple in allowing well known killers into the bosom of the most important Buddhist temple jeopardising the safety of not only the temple but also of the surrounding communities.
