Gajalakshmi Paramasivam – 10 February 2016
UN Practicing Inequality?
‘On Sunday, I visited the Northern and Eastern Provinces, where I met the Chief Ministers and members of the Provincial Councils as well as the Governors, and yesterday morning I was honoured to visit the revered Sri Dalada Maligawa, or Temple of the Sacred Tooth in Kandy, where I was graciously received by the Mahanayakas (Chief Monks) of the Malwatte and Asgiriya Chapters. I am very grateful to them for according me this great privilege, as well as to the members of the Hindu, Muslim and Christian communities I met in Colombo, Jaffna and Trincomalee.’ UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein
Sri Lankan Government is inviting the Public to make its contribution in structuring the new Constitution. Those of us who are not officially recognized make such contribution through conduct reflecting our Truth. Our Truth is often manifested freely when we are relaxed and feel unsupervised by a person or by common law. Was the visit by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to Sri Dalada Maligwa confirmation of the UN’s Truth – that it continues to fail to address Inequality that exists due to Buddhism being attributed higher status than any other religion in Sri Lanka? Does the visit not contradict the core message that the UN Human Rights Commission stands for – that in total value each individual is Sovereign and that where there are no common measures – as per common faith and/or official laws – we need to stay out of each other’s way as Equal parallels?
The Sri Lankan visit by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, is an official visit and ought to have prevented any personal inclinations by the individual Mr. Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein. The visit happened due to much pain and loss by all investors in Sri Lanka. Truth when manifested along a flat plane would show Equal sides. In Democracy these two sides need to be shown at the same point in time. UN’s commitment to Religious equality was not manifested by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. On the contrary – the visit confirmed lack of understanding of the root cause of ethnic war in Sri Lanka.
The root cause of the war is the lack of Separation of powers to the extent we are diverse at cultural level. Religion plays an important role in formulating our cultural norms.
The Root of the manifestation of an officer is the Common Policy. On that basis – the UN Officer had the responsibility to confirm the policy through Equal allocation of Resources to diverse manifestations. The absence of visit to Hindu, Christian or Muslim religious organizations confirms the lack of commitment to UN Policy in relation to Elimination of all forms of Racial Discrimination.
Natural Laws manifest the Sovereignty of Individuals and / or groups bound by Common Faith – where even one member is in need of such manifestation. In Sri Lanka this faith based binding is far stronger power than the bondage through legislated laws. Individuals and/or groups have the power to invoke the ‘balancing power’ of Nature / Truth once they become owners by feeling part of the whole – rather than thinking.
Given that Buddhism is allocated an official leading position in the Constitution a Hindu who believes in Sri Lanka – taking the lower position would start contributing to the whole of Sri Lanka – much earlier than a Buddhist with higher responsibilities. I learnt this as a minority in Australia where Sri Lankan qualifications were considered to be of lesser status than Australian qualifications. I often took my lower position but continued to perform at the highest standard applicable in that structure. Once I completed my responsibilities as per my stated position – every stroke of my work went towards ownership. When I was persecuted for showing the outcomes of my contribution through my stated position – I felt pain which I had the duty to describe as racism. The official system did not recognize my conclusions – but the moment I gave it recognition – I started influencing the manifestation of Natural Powers of ownership. This resulted in the University of New South Wales as well as the then Prime Minister of Australia – getting demoted.
I identify with a similar pattern with minorities in Sri Lanka who feel Sri Lankan but are denied such recognition from time to time. Each time a Buddhist leader fails to uphold the leadership responsibilities as per article 9 of the Constitution – to contribute to the Sovereignty of Sri Lanka through the Sovereignty of Buddhism in Sri Lanka – the loss of ownership power is exponential – as if all Buddhists of Sri Lanka failed the ownership test. One who is truly sovereign would recognize another even though that other may carry a different form. The above visit confirms that neither the Buddhist Institution in Sri Lanka nor the UN Human Rights Commission is Sovereign.
