Same Rights or Equal Opportunity for Tamils?
must admit that Tamils have the same rights as everyone else in Sri Lanka. The
North and East of Sri Lanka are the homelands of the Tamils.”
– Mr Wigneswaran
Given that the narrator is Mr Wigneswaran, it cannot be a
language error. Is it therefore an error of law? Or Ignorance of Natural Law?
The best way I can think of explaining this to my service
group in Northern Sri Lanka is through the legend of Nakeerar who said to Lord
Shiva ‘Even if the Lord opens the third eye
- a fault is a fault. The question there was whether the hair of a woman
had natural scent? As per Lord Shiva the answer was yes. But Royal Poet
Nakeerar said there was Error of Fact in the response. When Lord Shiva asked
him whether according to him – even divine ladies’ hair did not have natural
scent, Nakeerar said that their hair also did not have natural scent. Then as per
the legend, Lord Shiva opened His third eye and the sparks burnt Nakeerar. My
interpretation of this is that the hair of Divine women had natural scent –
felt through one’s inner consciousness – which is the parallel of insight. When
we go into virtual reality – that is the experience we have. When therefore Lord
Shiva opened His third eye that was exactly the message about Divinity which we
become conscious of when we burn our body consciousness.
On that basis, I quote the following from my recent work:
logic varies as per our personal culture and/or as per our environmental
culture. Those driven by visible effects make weak mind-connections. The
subjective system does not work very well for them. To the extent they are
strongly driven by their own personal laws they would tend to be
opposed to the personal law, there is the Common law. This Common law is
reliable to the extent the makers sacrificed to become common. Such sacrifices naturally elevate the law to be of a higher
level than the sum of the values of the personal laws of individuals in that
environment. In Parliament for example, where all are mere representatives of
their People – the laws made in Parliament through majority vote also would be
at that level. It would be simple average of the total of all those who voted for
it. But where some sacrificed benefits at the higher level, to become equal to
the average, it automatically elevates the value. The sacrifice becomes the invisible
root that supports the visible structure and the processes and laws that connect
one part of the structure to another. When laws are made on the basis of sacrifices,
they spread themselves exponentially. Their value is geometric average until it
becomes infinity and is invisible. ]
invisible. We advise others of our rights through our actions. Through the war,
the Tamil Army with its own rules has
demonstrated that it considers itself as Equals to Sinhala army. That group
also has matched ‘Sinhala only’ with Tamil only’ .
making level, have Tamils presented a bill in National Parliament to claim
equal rights as Buddhists – in North and East and in areas where majority are Hindus
? To have equal rights as Buddhists – is that not needed? In the absence of
such a claim we are by effect accepting junior status or that there are two
nations – one for Buddhists and another for Non-Buddhists.
with this – one needs insight into Natural Law which continuously balances
Wigneswaran associated himself with armed groups which interpreted Vaddukoddai
Resolution as claim of Separate state known as Tamil Eelam. At that level – we Tamils
are juniors to majority race – Sinhalese. It is when we feel Equal as per
Natural law – that the rights have been earned. Combined with benefits – Rights
are known as Opportunities. Hence Equal Opportunity laws. Did Mr Wigneswaran
introduce such laws when he was Chief Minister of Northern Province? Has Mr
Wigneswaran made up a constitution that includes these articles – which could
then be a model for other provinces and eventually for the Nation of Sri Lanka?
thinking does not become law in a civilized community.
