BUDDHA EMBRACED GOTABAYA RAJAPAKSA
On 19 November 2019, Mr Gotabaya Rajapaksa took oath as President – at the Buddhist shrine - Ruwanweli Maha Seya. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l62wvtR71AE. I then opposed it through my articles. To me, it was wrong for a President of Sri Lanka to take oath as a Buddhist. A member of Parliament, of a 100% Buddhist electorate, could but not the President of the whole nation. The Constitution allows it through Article 9 which renders Buddhism - foremost place. That is a Political article and is limited to the belief of Buddhists only.
Mr Wigneswaran , the former Chief Minister of Northern Province opened his political speeches with parallel Hindu mantra. This separated him from Christians and Muslims in Northern Province.
Now I realise the value of my opposition through which I strengthened the secular President in that group in Parliament. That was Mr Ranil Wickremesinghe who was then Prime Minister. To my knowledge there was no official objection to this from any elected member of Parliament, including Mr Ranil Wickremesinghe and Tamil members. Now I realise that that opposition was ongoing and was the real Aragalaya / Struggle. To the extent the Galle Face group was genuine, they would have been empowered by such Opposition which when left unaddressed, becomes eternal power. To qualify as an exponential power – it must be continuous on time basis. That is the hierarchical parallel of majority rule. If even one member of Parliament had believed in the Fundamental Human Rights relating to Equal Opportunity, they would have brought a motion against the President on the basis of article 38 (2)(i) of the constitution which states:
[(2) (a) Any Member of Parliament may, by a writing addressed to the Speaker, give notice of a resolution alleging that the President is permanently incapable of discharging the functions of his office by reason of mental or physical infirmity or that the President has been guilty of –
(i) intentional violation of the Constitution]
There was evidence that the President intentionally violated the latter part of article 9 which is as follows:
9. The Republic of Sri Lanka shall give to Buddhism the foremost place and accordingly it shall be the duty of the State to protect and foster the Buddha Sasana, while assuring to all religions the rights granted by Articles 10 and 14(1)(e).
The Constitution is the consolidated mind of the Parliament. Some aspects would be positive to a citizen, whilst negative to others at the same time. Mr Gotabaya Rajapaksa chose to inherit Mrs Bandaranaike’s mind which is known through the 1972 constitution through which the above provisions and requirements were first implemented in Sri Lanka. To the extent a non-Buddhist who believes s/he is Sri Lankan, is adversely affected by the Government which failed to proactively facilitate Articles 10 and 14(1)(e), that person’s pain becomes Sri Lanka’s pain. It is like elders’ power.
Yesterday, I shared the conclusion by an LTTE heir who stated as follows:
[Gotabaya, during his cruel rule of over 12 years, chased Tamils from country to country. That karma is now chasing him from country to country. Many nations came forward to embrace Tamils. But no country in the world has come forward to accept Gota. We expect that at least from now on Sri Lankan politicians would follow in the Dharmic pathway of Buddha]
The above person who is a non-Buddhist is using Buddhism to make the judgment of ‘cruelty’ But to me, Mr Gotabaya Rajapaksa is being led by Buddha. As per latest news reports, the former President has already arrived in Thailand. Wikipedia presents Thailand’s Buddhist population as follows:
[Buddhism is the largest religion in Thailand, which is practiced by 93% of the population. Thailand is a Secular State in the Thai constitution, which guarantees religious freedom for all Thai citizens, though the king is required by law to be a Theravada Buddhist. ]
Wikipedia presents Sri Lanka’s Buddhist population as follows:
[Theravada Buddhism is the official religion of Sri Lanka, with about 70.2% of the country's population as followers. ]
I am therefore not surprised at all that Buddha in Thailand blessed Mr Gotabaya Rajapaksa and led him to Thailand which is more strongly Buddhist than Sri Lanka.
During the time I was devalued at the University of NSW, I wrote to a senior academic-administrator that I must ‘beg’ for work as Lord Buddha begged for food. I was in pain back then. I was duly employed on contract by UNSW Sports Medicine. Now I realise that the ‘gap’ became ‘internal intelligence’ to the corporate mind of the University.
Likewise, Mr Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s intelligence of Buddhist citizens would now be stronger. The reception from a Tamil Medical Professional(TMP) , to my article ‘WHICH NATION WOULD HAVE ACCEPTED PRABHAKARAN? and the conversation that followed was follows:
TMP: Gaja, when will you stop your irresponsible blabbering? I know you want to irritate sane people but you are going more and more insane trying to do so. You praise Gota as fighting LTTE. Are you not ashamed to be so stupidly blind to say so. How many non combatants civilians from all communities he has murdered. How many surrendered people he has murdered. How many were killed for ransom. How many journalists he has murdered. How many murderers who were sentenced to death were released. How many sick and racist Buddhist clergy he employed to spread rabid racism and to create racial riots. How many places where he has encouraged to build Buddhist temples where Hindu temples stood. How many tamil coolies he employed to murder Tamil civilians. Gota is the one who has ordered NOT to sing the national anthem in tamil. So Gaja, just see what nonsense you are uttering and your mental ability to understand things. Gota is the killer who ordered the kid Balachandran to be murdered whom previously fed with biscuits by the soldiers. he is the one who ordered the people who surrendered with white flags.
Now coming to Australia, have you forgotten how you guys manipulated the application to come over here. Not only that, you even got down your husband's family members and worst still expected them to be your slaves but that did not happen. Now you are at their throats. You lied that Paramasivam was invited by the Aussi government to come and enlighten Australia. You claimed that you were coming to look after the kids. Even now it is possible to get your citizenship cancelled and pack you off to Thunaivi. Tell me why you came to Australia. How is it different from other migrants? But having come here you challenged the Australian values and even went to court. You talk of your human rights when you don't respect others values. You Gaja deserted Sri lanka and went in search of greener pastures to improve your quality of life, thus you just have no moral value or right to talk about Sri lanka. Less you speak, the less you will expose your ignorance.
Now coming to Nadesalingam and family, your outburst is mere jealousy and frustration. It is a family that is loved not only in Australia but worldwide. It is immaterial how they came into SL. If so then first we must investigate and look into your entry application papers. But that great family proved to the people of Australia that they will become very worthy citizens of Australia and that is it. That is democracy. It it not like how you are breast beating and howling for a cold blooded murderer Gota whom entire Sri lankans dont want. If we file a complaint about your application and if the government decides to pack you off, do you think a single person would protest? So your hero Gota is a desperate pathetic soul today, and someone said that he is occupying a place owned by KP's wife in Thailand. By the way, did you know that the US was almost there to rescue VP and his family and men, but unfortunately Indian dirty Brahmins blocked and that is history. Also VP, unlike you or Gota, never ran away and sacrificed him and his entire family for a cause. I suggest that you worship VP instead of Muruga or Bagavans and I am certain wisdom will keep falling from his photo.
Gaja: Since it is blabbering to you and since no one from this group has objected to your uncultured responses - NO MORE EMAILS TO THIS GROUP OR ANY THAT YOU ARE PART OF.
TMP: Come on gaja, I know who you are and what you are. You just can't keep away. You want only a dumb audience. In fact I am the only faithful guy who responds to you. Let me tell you why others don't respond. When they see your name they just delete the mail and that is why. Despite your crazy views yet i enjoy reading and responding because I'm a fully retired and have plenty of time to waste. So please don't give up and I am there for you.
Gaja: When you write lies about me and my family – and I keep mum – it means I am accepting what you say ABOUT ME. When you have ‘freedom’ you have the limit to stay within YOUR truth. By writing lies about me you lost your own freedom at the higher level.
Just because you do not know others who respond to me – you have assumed that YOU are the ONLY one. Others don’t catch one or two words and react. That is your way. I tried to educate you but you are beyond learning. The reason is because you are otherwise idle and the devil is in you.
TMP: Gaja, no doubt it is the devil or the deep sea for me. Lie has to be met with truth, truth is painful, yet i have to do though this may displease you. For a person like you, who worships Gota as a hero, what more anyone can say about you. You are a Tamil enemy, you are jealous of Tamils who do well, you hate people who speak the truth. Your hatred of the nadesalingam family is just one example. You just don't care that Australians (not you) love that family. When I praise their kids, for that too you become angry! You have no moral right about the migrants or refugees, it is up to the Australian government to sort it out. We must only worry about how we came into this country and for what. Devil or holy spirit or Yaman are better than living devils that haunt and hunt peaceful humans. But gaja, I am very tolerant and let us indulge in our interaction however lies you churn out.
Then I forwarded to TMP, the public conversation with Sri Lankan Trevor Jayatilleke (TJ), on the same article:
TJ: Well Lakshmi.,
Prabhakaran would have been accepted by Norway (Solheim and Banki Moon tried as a last resort to save him which was known to all and sundry), but he could not be reached in the swamps of the Nanthikadal Lagoon probably unable to switch his mobile on.
That was his final Karma (Terrorism is a DEAD END scenario for its Leaders).
However Prabha was a Messiah for the Tamils but Gota has himself to blame leaving his 6.9 followers in a conundrum like Prabha leaving his Human Shields stranded unable to cross the Lagoon which his hard core fighters underwent with him like in Waterloo.
With malice to none..
Gaja: Thank you Trevor. If Norway officially harboured the LTTE leader, Norway’s own status would have been seriously damaged. If the UN was genuine, it would have found a way. I myself wrote an open letter to VP to surrender to Nallur Murugan. But VP did not seem to be connected through that pathway. He had enough self-dignity and dying in the battlefield is an honour for war heroes. He will enjoy good life in his next birth. He went when his mission was completed. That was also the case with his hero – Emperor Ellalan.
Now I know that continuous Opposition through Belief never fails. Hence Oppose we must but only through our belief if we do not have official status.
