SRI LANKAN PROTESTORS WITH AMERICAN MINDS?
I received an expression of appreciation from Dr C A Saliya, to my analysis headed ‘GENOCIDE CLAIM & BUDDHISM FOREMOST ARTICLE’ :
‘I love this piece of writing. Thanks’ As per Dr Saliya’s CV – he is a Chartered Accountant. Hence I responded as follows:
‘Thank you. One Balanced Accountant knows the other’
My attention was then drawn to the Colombo Telegraph article ‘Fearmongering & Spreading Rumors By Indian Intelligence In Sri Lanka’ by Dr Murali Vallipuranathan who is presented as follows:
[A visiting lecturer at the Universities of Jaffna and Colombo, a Senior Specialist of the Ministry of Health and a Council Member of the Sri Lanka Medical Association. He claims the opinion expressed in this article with social responsibility aims to improve the public awareness on good governance, promotes healthy discussion for a system change and in no way reflects his official positions.]
Dr Vallipuranathan is taking status benefit through his medical work but not for any loss associated with his writing work. That is like Mr Wigneswaran carrying his ‘Justice’ status but does not take responsibility for losses through his political work at National level.
The writer refers us to the Daily News report dated 16 May headed ‘Wigneswaran extends support to PM’. As per this report:
[“Although Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe’s UNP had only one Parliamentary seat, he went on to become the Prime Minister of the country and likewise although we have only a solitary seat in Parliament we will use it to solve Tamil people’s issues,” Wigneswaran said.]
Dr Murali’s interpretation of the above is presented as follows:
Tamil party leaders (https://dailynews.lk/2022/05/16/political/278911/wigneswaran-extends-support-pm?page=15 ) and media controlled by India, are spreading the story that none other than RW can save Sri Lanka as the savior of the Sri Lankan economy in the current context.
In other words – Mr Wigneswaran, according to Dr Murali is the medium of the Indian government.
Dr Murali presents also the influence of Global and Regional powers as follows:
[As popular uprisings intensified in Galle Face and other parts of the country, superpower US and regional power India feared the formation of a left-wing government in Sri Lanka would result in not listening to them and not supporting their interests in the region. RW has been chosen as the appropriate agent to prevent it.]
I highlighted this as JVP & LTTE becoming the media of Communist China.
The coalition between Indian and American governments is, to my mind best understood through QUAD , presented as follows by Wikipedia:
[The Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (QSD), colloquially the Quad …, is a strategic security dialogue between Australia, India, Japan, and the United States that is maintained by talks between member countries. …During the 2017 ASEAN Summits in Manila, all four former members led by Shinzo Abe, Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and US President Donald Trump agreed to revive the quadrilateral alliance in order to counter China militarily and diplomatically in the "Indo-Pacific" region, particularly in the South China Sea. Tensions between Quad members and China have led to fears of what was dubbed by some commentators "a new Cold War" in the region.]
Indian elder Mr M K Bhadrakumar shares his insight as follows at
The above clearly explains why the Protestors gathered at Galle Face in front of Port City, why the President was asked to ‘Go Home’ despite the Constitution not allowing it , why Mr Mahinda Rajapaksa stepped down to make way for Mr Ranil Wickremesinghe and most importantly why the Americans chose to pass Resolution at UN level and banned LTTE . That is however our global reality. As per my belief – the pandemic happened due to ‘Silk Road’ heritage being used for economic purposes. That is like disturbing the grave of a respected elder. The costs become exponential in current terms. The plague of the Silk Road became the Pandemic of the BRI.
