Suicidal Refugees & Suicide Bombers

As I read the following statement at https://edition.cnn.com/2019/05/21/asia/manus-island-suicides-scli-intl/index.html I asked myself as to whether Papua New Guinea had authority to prosecute Australian refugees:

[Attempting suicide is a crime in Papua New Guinea, and the detention centers are managed by PNG and Nauru on behalf of Australia.]

Any valid law that has the power of allocating higher status to one over another  needs to be belief based. Where there is no such common belief the law helps us to regulate ourselves and does not afford authority over another. Failure to follow this fundamental rule could lead to genuine jihads to protect one’s dignity. Those act in breach of this basic rule accumulate negative ownership karma in their own home-areas. That was how during  John Howard’s rule, Australia suffered from Bali bomb attack. To the extent the power of the voters in this issue became stronger than Mr Howard’s and his supporters, Truth intervened to weaken the fundamental values of ownership of the position held. Hence Mr Howard lost his seat. Other leaders including Mr Kevin Rudd faced strong leadership challenges due to this refugee issue.

Until proven otherwise, refugees who seek to make Australia their home through due processes have to be taken as believers in their right to refuge under UN principles. Beyond that Australians who did not get the official approval of Indigenous Australians to land here carry that negative karma to the extent they do not feel remorse. Any genuine refugee can invoke this karma. Where a genuine refugee is pushed to commit suicide the old karma would be invoked against all those who carry negative karma in terms of immigration. This could lead to attacks from the network of believers of the victims who were denied their due status despite being genuine.

I keep asking myself as to what the solution to this is – at citizens’ level. In relation to Sri Lanka which is known for exporting refugees, Economy Next reports ‘'Mother of Satan' bombs show foreign hand in Sri Lanka bombings: investigators’ while Al Jazeera reports ‘In Sri Lanka, Muslims say Sinhala neighbours turned against them’.
Finding the ‘foreign hand’ could be positive or negative to Sri Lankans. Discoveries that make us feel frustrated because we do not have influence over the perpetrators would be good for cheap politics but bad in governance. But at citizens’ level – Muslims who feel alienated need to make themselves distant relations of those who alienated them. I present this as follows in my book ‘Jaffna is my Heritage – Not Dowry’

With Relatives driven by benefits and costs - I was able to take
equal position and distance myself. One is ancestral  and
the other is wider world One who is true to a system  has the power
to work the other naturally. Accordingly, when our investment in
junior-senior structure is viewed laterally – the structure would
confirm one would be a distant relation of equal status to the other and v.v.
This is the philosophy  from which Equal Opportunity principles flow.
When juniors trust seniors less and less and v.v.
and the belief tends towards zero – this democratic approach
would help preserve the actual relationship.
That is how heritage  value is preserved in such deteriorating relationships.




Like Tamils, Muslims in Sri Lanka have also been victims of Buddhist supremacy. When they found Terrorists amongst themselves and reported them to the authorities, they confirmed that they did not recognize the pain caused to Tamil civilians due to actions against the LTTE. Hence they overestimated the support that would come from such authorities who are majority Sinhalese Buddhists. Al Jazeera confirms this as follows:

[Kottaramulla, Sri Lanka - The stench of turpentine overpowered Jiffriya Ameer as she cradled her husband's head on her lap on the front porch of her home and watched the blood drain from the gaping wound on his head and neck. Her three children watched in horror as their father gasped for breath.
She screamed for help, but three police officers stood, looking on, in disbelief she said. The only vehicle which could take 49-year old Saleem Ameer to the hospital was engulfed in flames.
Minutes earlier, a Sinhalese mob had attacked Ameer with swords, fatally wounding him before pouring turpentine on his face.]
Sinhala Buddhists have certainly become distant relatives of Tamils as well as Muslims. If refugees who have not set foot in Australia feel let down – enough to commit suicide – one must expect worse from Muslims and Tamils who were let down in their home nation.

As per my premonition in 2006 this was meant to happen. The Appendix confirms this. The solution confirmed by that insight was presented as follows:

[To the extent Tamils keep criticizing the Sinhalese Government along the same vertical plane – they would not be able to establish their own independent opposition to the Sinhalese Government. Once Tamils show their independent view from the ‘other’ side (which is the international side) – on the same matter – they would lead the Sri Lankan government in the system of Democracy. Seeking separate state to rule through majority is to limit both sides to
lower level governance. This has distracted Tamils from taking the opportunity to join forces with the Judiciary in the current crisis faced by Sri Lankan leadership]

Muslims need to join forces with Democratic Global forces and not give up on their earned rights as a Diverse Community in Sri Lanka. Every diverse community is entitled to self-governance as a community.

Appendix – Excerpt from Naan Australian chapter 27 headed - ‘Leave the Rest to Me’

As highlighted above,  I had the vision of  Sri Shridi Baba when I felt thoroughly dejected by the verdict delivered by Justice Sully of the Supreme Court of New South Wales.  In the dream, I was going to a place where my friend Rani Sritharan was with many women.  While I was talking to them – I noticed a Tamil child with a huge black Pottu – being chastised by a White person.  I quietly asked the child whether she had erred? The child looked blankly back at me.  Then I looked out the window and there I saw ‘farmers’ talking in Tamil.  With them stood Sri Shridi Baba.  Sri Shridi Baba did not open His mouth to speak. He just kept looking at me – and in my mind I heard the message ‘Help Muslims and Tamils’.

I had similar experience in Jaffna with Yoga Swami.  My mother reminded me of this years later.  We were standing at entrance to the residence of Doctor Pasupati – the father of Shiva Pasupati – former Attorney General of  Sri Lanka and also of my former boss Mr. Samy Pasupati.  Yoga Swami arrived and he was in a car. Swami did not get off the car – as he had hurt his hip while feeding his cow Valli.  My mother was carrying my brother – 13 years my junior. My mother lifted my baby brother Shiva up for Swami to bless my brother – the son that my father wanted very much.  As my mother recalled later – Swami kept looking past her to me – standing in a corner – as was my way before I started taking on responsibilities.  I still remember Swami’s eyes looking to me – and communicating silently with me. To me it was a Blessing from Swami – communicated in the stillness of Silence.

When I had the vision of Sri Shridi Baba in November 2006 – I had similar experience. The message was powerful.  But I still could not work out what I was supposed to do to help Muslims and Tamils.  A few days later I was invited by Mrs. Vijaya Amirthalingam - a devotee of Sai Baba to speak to their group at the Carlingford Sai Center on Ladies’ day. Below is what I wrote about this experience under the topic ‘Dissent & Opposition’ in Sri Lanka Guardian and is also published through our website http://www.austms.org/other_pdfs/EO_Dissent-n-Opposition.pdf  :


[Karthigai (Tamil November) month is the month of Muruga – the month in which Muruga was born. Muruga is the presiding Deity of Tamils. It is during this month that Karthigai Flower ( Gloriosa Lily )blooms in plenty in Jaffna. This flower is also the flower of the LTTE. I learnt about all this here in Sydney. In 2006 I was invited to speak at a Sai Center, on Ladies’ Day. I was hurting after the Supreme Court of New South Wales dismissed my complaint of unlawful racial discrimination, against the University of NSW, the State Government and the Commonwealth. I was in fact thinking of going and staying at the Yoga
Swami Aachram in Kilinochchi where my brother in law was already staying. On the morning after the verdict was delivered by the Supreme Court – I had a vision/dream in which I received the message to help Tamils and Muslims. I later realized that that was the solution to the Equal Opportunity pain and loss I was experiencing. That pain would be felt by anyone who had genuinely invested in Democracy but was continuing to live in autocratic
systems.

When the Sai Center called me to speak, I felt an intuitive comfort. I shared with the Sai devotees how I felt helped by Swami Sai Baba during this pain. I continued to go there even though that particular center is a distance away from our home. One of the senior ladies brought to me on the day of Karthigai Theepam 2006 a picture of Sai Baba – a big one to be hung on the wall. When we brought the picture home and hung the picture on the wall where
there already was a nail – I could see the lamps along the Coast of Coogee reflected through this picture. I felt that Lord Muruga Himself had come home. Later when I got to know that the son of this lady who gave me the picture, was in custody for supporting LTTE and was refused bail – I wrote to the Australian Attorney General and obtained signatures from the Tamil community in support. The President of the Human Rights Commission responded to
that communication – expressing support for my side. The LTTE supporter was granted bail during the following hearing. Eventually when this LTTE supporter was released, I was able to identify with my work also. I was able to write because I believed that I had credits with the Australian Justice system. The connection with Lord Muruga helped me use my credit in favour of the Tamil Community. I did not pause to separate the LTTE from the Tamil Community and therefore from Lord Muruga. I just shared the credits I had with the Australian system and that I believed added to the influence felt by the Australian authorities.

I do believe that when we work genuinely and independently – the powers work instantaneously. Like with God – surface readers are not able to ‘see’ the connection. Those who feel would know intuitively and share silently.

As for the Karthigai Flower - I came across this flower when I went to buy flowers for garlands for the Sai Center. It looked beautiful and I bought and took them to the Sai Center. There I learnt that it was the flow of the ‘Boys’ (LTTE) and another Indian lady said that it was the flower of Lord Muruga and it had 6 petals. It did have. I felt so very comforted feeling that Muruga was with me. Often we forget that we all have Divine powers. These powers work intuitively to balance the system of Natural Justice. To me that fact that Swami brought the message that the incident happened during Karthigai Theepam celebrations and at the University of Jaffna – meant that I could help through my credits with the University system. The form would evolve as I continue to seek.

The Value of  My  Vote

The Australian election outcomes as far as I am concerned were satisfactory – in the sense  - our electorate is represented by the party preferred by me. When I was active in Australian Administration, the national leader also mattered. Not so any more. Hence so long as the system works for me – I am satisfied. If it does not, I will express it at the following elections, by voting against that person and party at the top. By doing so, I tell myself that I am their opposition. This helps me preserve my ‘democratic rights’. The last minute lobbying confirms that the leaders seek to ‘influence’ the voter away from her/his inner truth. A voter who is so influenced – has no roots in democracy. A fellow member of Facebook raised the following question on the eve of the elections:

[Whoever wins this election tomorrow will they sustain through a full term without a leadership challenge until the next election? ]

My response was: [Bob Hawk was a survivor. One who has his true blessings will survive]

I believe that we need the blessings of our Common Elders in that issue to be supported to maintain that heritage.

This morning, I was directed to Professor David Kumar’s Colombo Telegraph  article ‘Is Choice Limited To Heartless Gota, Hopeless Ranil & Clueless Sira?’ opened as follows:
[Sun Tzu say: “If you know enemy and know yourself, no need fear hundred battles. If you know yourself but not enemy, for every victory you suffer one defeat. If you know neither enemy nor yourself, you succumb in every battle.”]

The title of the article gives one the message that all three leaders are the opposition of Professor David Kumar. Hence so long as Professor Kumar knows himself – there is no need to fear ongoing battles. If Professor Kumar knows himself but not the above mentioned leaders – then for every right prediction he would suffer one defeat. That is the parallel of ‘Time will tell’ in  autocracy. If Professor Kumar knows neither himself nor the opposition he has presented – then he would lose as a voter in every election.

In essence, we need to know ourselves so as to position ourselves either on the side of a leader or as the leader’s opposition. I believe that it is through our truth that we can know the other side. Those driven merely by outcomes – do not have this ability. Out of the above three – Mr Sirisena to my mind fits that category. The problem with that kind of person is that they are incapable of developing reliable  structures.  This has already been proven in the case of Mr Sirisena. Those who vote for him will get their share of that incapacity which often leads to mental disorders. There are many such voters in Vaddukoddai which did not sacrifice enough to sustain the Vaddukoddai Resolution structure. Sacrifice is essential to develop reliable structures. Structures facilitate positions, relationships and duties. When one performs one’s duties one is protected by the power of the sacrifice based on which such structures happened. One who does her/his duty – has the power to return to sender / leader and thus confirms the saying ‘If you know your enemy and know yourself, no need fear hundred battles’.

Since we have greater insight into Mr Gotabhaya as a citizen without portfolio, we would vote for him if we are users of ‘citizenships’ – as if they were trading commodities. Dual citizens affect both their nations and need double the commitment to respect common ownership. Those who vote for Mr Gotabhaya would also gamble with citizenships – especially in a new country. They would vote for neither Sri Lankan citizenship nor global citizenship.

Ranil is the closest  example of ‘If you know your enemy and know yourself, no need fear hundred battles’. Like Bob Hawk and now Morrison, he has staying power. He is the best facilitator of democracy that we have gotten to know thus far. Those who voter for Ranil will vote for non-violent  democratic political system.

Professor Kumar concludes as follows:

[A plural, democratic, modern and progressive philosophy cannot be stimulated in the country unless the Chapter on Buddhism is repealed by assertion of secularism and all differential or unbalanced references to language are removed.]
Only a very small minority refer to the Constitution. Out of those who do – a large majority do so for academic purposes and not because they believe in Democracy. A leader who repeals – would be committing political suicide. If ‘Buddhism foremost’ had been followed – Sri Lanka would not have been democratic but would have been in harmony with itself – as shown by Buddha. That article in the constitution confirms the truth – that we are autocratic. Even the academic pundits who seek to recommend that it be repealed are highly likely to be autocratic by getting the ‘right’ ticks with the Western world.

The parallel of the above in the Tamil community is the saying ‘LTTE  are heroes’. Given that the LTTE was dictatorial we know that they do not represent democracy, leave alone supporting democracy. But they are the weapon that Tamils have against Buddhist supremacy which would naturally invoke the equal and opposite in a community that is independent of Buddhists. But the good thing about it is – that the likes of LTTE keep the likes of ISIS away from Sri Lanka. Likewise, the Muslim parallel of LTTE – would keep Christian extremists like the Christchurch bomber away from Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka’s military capability has been extended to global level due to the LTTE and therefore Tamils. Let us stop using the Administrative tool of ‘right and wrong’ for grades and instead use the ownership power of knowing the connection between cause and effect. That is the karmic force that leads to true balance of powers in our mind.

My vote is for Ranil due to his non-violent sustaining power. Ranil facilitated many of us to participate through the lawful pathway  in the Constitutional Crisis and identify with its success. That was true and real example of self-governance.

Temples for Spiritual Training or Vocational Training?

I believe that Freedom is important to learn the Truth about ourselves. Hence various privacy laws. All institutions – starting with families are entitled to the privacy within their institutional walls. Political leaders need to consciously wear their intellectual uniforms when they present their nations to wider world.

In the interview published by Ceylon Today under the heading ‘Take tough decisions - Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’  Mr Mahinda Rajapaksa has revealed that places of religious worship are used for vocational training:

[Q: The Sharia University was established during your regime. Do you now regret about that decision?

Response: Sharia University was not established during our time. It was formed as a vocational training centre through the Vocational Training Authority. 
There are various tertiary education level vocational training institutes and most of these operate through Temples.
 The first was Kataragama Temple and then, Beliaththa Getamanna Temple, and Kirivehara and so on. We operated centring religious places because we initially didn’t have funds to make our own establishments. 
We used conference halls and dining halls in temples for vocational training. We gave the training opportunity to Muslims as well, to Christians and Hindus even. I am the former President, not the former Minister under whose purview vocational training fell... that was Dullas Alahapperuma. 
When the permission was requested, we gave it, only to build a Vocational Training Centre. This is what now has been turned into a Sharia University. The Government clearly has the power to take over this university.]

Democracy works successfully only when Common Belief is strong. If temples are used for vocational training, then separation begins at that level. The way a Hindu would be trained would be different to the way a Buddhist would be trained. One who is not able to distinguish between the various religions is bound to fail in democratic leadership. Sri Lanka under the leadership of Mr Rajapaksa was a total failure in democracy. The above response confirms this.

The primary reason for separation is to facilitate ‘privacy’ of various faiths to share their truth within that space. Any group that shares its truth with fellow members is a well balanced group. It is for this reason that ‘freedom of the media’ is protected by law. It is for this reason why there are Fundamental Rights protected by law. Fundamental Rights lead us to Spiritual powers that work through our intuition. Travelling within the privacy of our Fundamental Rights is essential towards reaching this goal. This is also the reason why Separation of Powers between the Judiciary and Executive Government is essential in Democracy. Mr Rajapaksa failed that test due to lack of respect for that separation during his time as President of Sri Lanka. The above response confirms that he knows very little about democracy. This is ok so far as he did not take any benefits on the basis of democracy.
One of his regime’s victims is Arulantham Arun who changed his name to Arun Sitharth Maithreyan.  Sitharth is reported to be his son’s name. Ceylon Today article ‘Look within for solutions’ introduces Arun as follows:
[Arun publically condemned Tamil politicians, pointed out wrongs and challenged politicians to make amends. He talked about irregularities in the education system, pointed out troubles the Tamil youth are facing and even went as far as to say that all the Hindus are in fact, Buddhists.]
In his discussion with Adaderana – Arun connects Nallur rule of men removing the shirt to caste system – the same way Mr Rajapaksa connects Vocational training schools to religious education. Men do not need to remove their shirts at Kathirgamam Murugan temple but they do have to at Nallur which carries the fundamental laws of Hinduism much more strongly than Kathirgamam. As per my experience they are both powerful places but they are separate entities as Theivayanai and Valli are separated with Murugan in the Common Middle. One who is truly faithful to Murugan – will know naturally from within when such separation is needed. Such a believer would be an expert in democracy.

Converting all Sri Lankans to Buddhism may seem convenient to majority Sinhalese. But the more the political leaders interfere with other faiths that are more successfully travelling towards Spiritual Oneness – the more they weaken the Buddhism foremost power in the Constitution. The truth that such provisions represent work independent of the politicians. As per that truth – Sri Lankan leaders who resorted to arms to claim victory lack the natural powers to invoke Peace. If you take position through religion – then you are limited to your religious group to govern. The leader loses the moral authority to govern non-Buddhists. If they do – Buddhism will punish them – as it has punished the current leaders – starting with Mr Rajapaksa.



If Sharia University that happened during Rajapaksa regime was for vocational training – one should not be surprised that Muslims were making bombs – to protect Islam in their region.

Then Mahendran and Now Dhammika?

I was shocked  to read the message on this Buddhist holy day that directed me to the report: ‘Ranil meets Dhammika! 2020 common candidate Dhammika?’  - https://lankanewsweb.net/news/special-news/43417-ranil-meets-dhammika-2020-presidential-candidate-dhammika

[The Prime Minister, after discussing the status quo, had suggested that Dhammika Perera contest the upcoming presidential election as the common candidate.
The Prime Minister had further stated the general public is unhappy about politicians in general. He had reportedly said people are expecting a new face and Dhammika Perera is the best person for this.]
As per Wikipedia report:
[In 2013, Perera became Sri Lanka's wealthiest individual, with a net worth of LKR 72.6 Billion (approx. $550 Million); he owns one of 50 limited edition Bentley Mulsanne Hallmarks]
If Sri Lanka is to be truly a Buddhist Nation – true to the Constitution, then it’s Governor needs to be like Buddha and not like Mukesh Ambani.
In his article ‘Who are we?’ author Peter D’Almeida quotes
[Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith spoke of Buddhism as the ... went so far as to say: “We look upon Buddhists as our elder brother.”]
If indeed Buddhists were our elder brothers  then we become traitors to Democracy. Democracy requires us to express our Diversity confidently and take Equal position with another of belief through different form.
As per the above report:
[Prime Minister had stated, “The country needs you, you are the best person to rebuild the country, and you have a vision to do that. Be our common candidate. I will give the party’s fullest support. You can become the President, and I will continue to be the Prime Minister.”]
If the Government is of belief that Sri Lanka is a Buddhist country then the best person to given Sri Lankans that confidence would be like Buddha who renounced material wealth. How anyone could picture Dhammika Perera, the wealthy businessman in that position is beyond my comprehension. It does not make sense to me and it would not make sense to any true Sri Lankan, leave alone true Buddhist.
As per the above report:
[“I can get Rajapaksa family’s support too. They can’t oppose me. Private media institutions are also with me. Everyone’s with me,” Dhammika Perera had opined.]
The big question is who is the common citizen who identifies with Dhammika Perera as her/his mentor? If such a person is non-Buddhist  then the Constitution needs to be amended to be secular – i.e. – without Buddhism foremost clause. If such a person is Buddhist  then Dhammika Perera must renounce his wealth before contesting to become President of Buddhist Sri Lanka. That is the way of logic. Without such clarity of thought all Sri Lankans who  actively participate in Lankan politics would become mentally ill for the simple reason that the politicians keep contradicting themselves. Such politicians could make laws that would contradict themselves.
 Ranil seems to be getting lost when it comes to economic challenges. This is why he made the mistake with Mahendran as Governor of Central Bank. Dhammika Perera as Common Candidate would rob Sri Lanka of its true Buddhist values. It’s time for Ranil to retire with grace. 

The common candidate is the one who has sacrificed most for ‘commonness’. A true Buddhist would be. But I see none amongst Sri Lankan politicians. In his Daily News  article ‘Spirituality in place of pomp’, K.K.S.Perera who seems to have invested in spirituality quotes Philosopher Jiddu  Krishnaurti  as follows: :

[“The ability to observe without evaluating is the highest form of intelligence.”]

I believe that my karma in sharing  the message below brought me the opportunity to ready Philosopher’s message through Buddhist K.K.S.Perera:

[Rights and wrongs are applicable only where one is responsible in common to both sides. A politician celebrating a militant group has no such common measure. Hence we need to inquire the connection between cause and effect. To be effective in this path we need to NOT judge on the way. We need to keep going until we can go no more.]
In essence when the mind is still Truth surfaces. Consciousness of Truth is the highest form of intelligence.
Our actions are interconnected through our guna / inner character which is our fundamental energy that keeps getting weaker or stronger as per the truth we discover and/or practice in daily life. Good or bad Mahinda Rajapaksa has that steadiness more than any other politician in current parliament. The poor voter is caught between the Mahinda  and Ranil.

True Remembrance

Today is the Anniversary of the final stage of the armed war between the Tamil Tigers and the Sri Lankan Official armed forces in 2009.  If we remember and attribute credit to the side that was positive to us – that Energy will be with us. On May 18 the true Tamil will pay respects to all those who fought for Independence of the Tamil community in Sri Lanka. This is not limited to those who died in the last stages of the war nor to the LTTE. If the date is taken as common – then it excludes those Tamils killed by the LTTE itself. If we are truly mourning the death of civilians then we should not politicize it in any way. If we do – then we inherit the quality   that gave them the win which may be negative for us in our current environment. Mr Tony Abbott paid his respects for Mr Bob Hawk said about Mr Hawk that he:
had a Labor heart but a Liberal head’ . Mr Abbott was criticized by the media over this. The parallel of LTTE would be that they had ‘militant heart but a political head’.

The picture above confirms that New Zealand’s then Opposition Labour Party paying tribute to LTTE and the civilians led by LTTE. Now the same individual is with the United Nations Development Programme and it is difficult to reconcile the two given that the LTTE has been blamed strongly by the UN for its human rights violations. The question needs to be asked as to whether the said participation in the memorial of an anti-political group had any influence on the Christchurch massacre. As per Vox report:
[On Wednesday, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and French President Emmanuel Macron unveiled the “Christchurch call,” a push to combat online extremism in the wake of the March 15 mass shooting in two mosques in New Zealand that left 51 people dead. Billed as a commitment by governments and tech companies to “eliminate terrorist and violent extremist content online,” the call expresses clear support for freedom of expression while acknowledging that the darkest and most dangerous corners of the internet need to be addressed. ]

Is the New Zealand Prime Minister conscious of the fact that the LTTE is blamed by majority Muslims of Sri Lanka for the 1990 Kattankudy Mosque massacre in which 147 Muslims were killed while praying? Has the New Zealand Prime Minister inquired into the karma of celebrating the LTTE instead of the civilian victims who died in the conflict?

Rights and wrongs are applicable only where one is responsible in common to both sides. A politician celebrating a militant group has no such common measure. Hence we need to inquire the connection between cause and effect. To be effective in this path we need to NOT judge on the way. We need to keep going until we can go no more. The discovery at that point is our true knowledge of the connection between what happened (effect)  and what caused it to happen. (Cause). The LTTE should not be marked right because the Government was wrong. Once we know the reasons why as per their measures, we must use only the experience of discovering it and not use the outcomes or causes directly for our purposes. When we do – we invoke the mutated form of that group’s governance in our home environment.

Where we do not have common measures with the opposition, we need to use the one-way road to discover why something happened to us. This applies equally to nations that have suffered due to extremism. Extremism is not new to Sri Lanka. Sri Lankans who do not seek and find why they suffered when they did not directly participate with either side, are likely to find that their pain was due to using the measure of ‘convenience’ at that time. Once we know why something happened to us – we may find that we need to change the laws to be applicable to our current environment.  Where the process involves those who have physically moved on – and we do not attribute credit to them, and we take ‘credit’ for their work and/or the common work – but enjoy benefits from using their work – we inherit their weaknesses.

Hence let us mourn genuinely for the common victims known to us – without giving any public form as to which group we are mourning for.

America has no moral authority to Prosecute Assange

It was shocking news that I did not expect of our political leaders:

[Two Rwandan men accused of murdering eight tourists in 1999 have reportedly been sent to Australia as part of the Coalition's refugee swap deal with the US.
The pair were locked up in the US for the past 15 years, refusing to return to Rwanda where they are facing murder charges, according to reports in the US.
But under the refugee swap deal negotiated with Malcolm Turnbull and Barack Obama, the two were sent to Australia in exchange for asylum seekers currently in offshore detention, Politico reports.]

The Sri Lankan parallel of that would be to swap the leaders of the group that attacked on Easter Sunday for refugees from Pakistan. Obviously, we the ordinary citizens cannot punish the leaders. But in substance, is this not an example of suicide bombing?

It looks like a leaf out of the book of  Boat Arrivals in 1788 to establish a penal colony here. It means also that Americans are not able to manage their prisoners – especially foreign prisoners who are not bound by American laws.

Now that we the Australian public know about this, we demand that Julian Assange be repatriated to Australia – because we do not trust Americans who do secret deals with our political leaders to establish their penal colony here in Australia. American government that did ‘secret deal’ with Australian leaders – has lost its moral right to prosecute Assange.

Merely Sinhalese or Sri Lankans?

This morning I said to our son to pay his respects to Mr Bob Hawk, who according to me was a caring leader. I have never met Mr Hawk or any other Australian PM in person but  as a citizen I did not experience too much pain under Mr Hawk’s leadership.

I did under Mr Howard’s. The Courts dismissed my Racial Discrimination complaints. But the gods heard me. In the process I learnt about the parallel difficulties within mainstream also. When we fly – we do not have direct influence over the actions of the pilots. But as per my cultural grooming – I pray for our common safety. Had I been a safe driver/leader in my environment, then I have the ‘right’ to access the common safety Energy pool. For this reason, I follow the crew’s safety instructions during take-off. That shows respect for others’ work and training. I do likewise to the operator of the cleaning truck that operates on Coogee beach, in the early hours of the morning. That is when I have the natural right to expect good experience when I go to the Beach. ‘Customer is Right’ principle is developed on that basis. Likewise in Democracy, the Citizen is Right until proven otherwise. Our experiences educate us about our leaders – whether they are positive or negative for us. Tomorrow I cast my vote. At surface level – it may seem just another number. But in terms of Natural Powers – it is far stronger than the vote of any other Australian known to me. I voted mentally thus in the 2015 Sri Lankan Presidential and Parliamentary elections. I now feel that I voted for myself through the best fit available at the political level. The right to that kind of vote through Natural Energy is accumulated on daily basis in our own home environments.  

On that basis, yesterday I wrote to our Minister as follows in this regard, under the heading Why Should I Vote for your Party?:
[Mr Coleman, I am a senior citizen and I carry much wisdom in Democratic Public Service. When my time and brain are  wasted with frivolous questions – your system gets weaker and my attitude towards government changes. Systems are only as good as completed use by customers. The main flaw in the system seems to be that it is not tailored towards the common Australian citizen of the current generation. It seems to be an imported system with many unwanted requirements – which confirm lack of trust. You need to become the customer and know whether you have used our resources well. Each completed experience is your real vote until the next experience. The questions asked seem to be for application of citizenship. I have supplied a copy of the  original certificate and yet I have been put through this. Please go through the process yourself or one of your staff who is a migrant and ask yourself whether public resources have been invested wisely.]

After I wrote the above, our son arrived from Melbourne,  listened to my pain and asked me to ‘wait’. Just before going to bed I asked him to ask our youngest daughter who is also in Melbourne. He messaged her and confirmed that she had the original with her name also included in it. I took it as my family system working for me more than the government system which has weaker ‘trust-developing’ Energy.

In democracy, the junior has to be taken as ‘right’ until proven otherwise. We would be challenged by dismissals and failures but we need to get up and keep going.

It is the turn of Muslims to be taken as being ‘Right’ until proven otherwise by the Government of majority race. The Leader of the Opposition, Mr Mahinda Rajapaksa has the DUTY to represent them in this situation. Mr Mahinda Rajapaksa referred to Black July and expressed concern that it might be repeated. This confirms that despite his long rule – he did not cure the Sinhalese youth of their disorderly conduct. To the extent he is using their desires as quid pro quo platform – he would not have the right to cure them. Those who sell their vote to be ‘free’ as per their desires – would take his place – as if they were the President in their home areas. That is how suicide bombers are also developed. They take the position taken by their leader who is the only leader known to them.

Following is a report about the message from an educated leader of  Muslim community:
[President’s Counsel Ali Sabry says that the number of members in terrorist leader Zahran Hashim’s group grew significantly following the ethnic clashes in March last year and that this goes to show extremism feeds extremism.] Ada derana

The above is a return warning to Mr Mahinda Rajapaksa. The IPKF – Indian Peace Keeping Force  came into Sri Lanka in 1987due to 1983 massacre of Tamils living in majority Sinhalese areas. On that basis one is entitled to conclude that ISIS was the Islamic Peace Keeping Force that mentally came into Sri Lanka after the ethnic riots last year. By conduct IPKF was a killer force and not a peacekeeping force. No one can stop natural partnerships  based on true experiences. The gods would not intervene unless man seeks the other side. Krishna in Mahabharatham was that divine force and the minorities humbly asked for Him – as power of One – against majority whose leader chose the armed forces of Krishna’s kingdom. Krishna’s real power was the Common goodness in all – including those in Opposition.

This is an opportunity for Mr Rajapaksa and his party to join forces with the minority Muslims . They would if they truly cared about Mother Lanka. If they don’t we would conclude that they are merely Sinhalese and not Sri Lankans.
