Nandasena Issues Chilling Warning To Opposition: “I Killed Prabhakaran Like A dog – I Can Become That Person”
Irked by a critical parliamentary speech by an opposition MP, President Nandasena Gotabaya Rajapaksa yesterday showed chilling flashes of his old self in Ampara vowing to become “Defence Secretary Gotabaya” if necessary.
Issuing a not-so-veiled threat against SJB MP Harin Fernando, President Rajapaksa warned that Buddhist monks were always telling him to stop being “President Gotabaya” and take on the “stricter” role of “Defence Secretary”.
“Remember when Prabhakaran started his tricks and attacked me at the Pittala Junction? I finished that job by killing him and sprawling him out like a dog and bringing him across the Nandikadal Lagoon – I can be that person too” the President of Sri Lanka told a crowd who applauded his statements.
The opposition has the right to engage in politics as long as it was fair politics, said the President who has jailed political rivals and dissenting lawyers.
He also claimed he did not engage in political witch hunts like the previous Government but was merely allowing the law to take its course, even as key opposition MPs including Rajitha Senaratne and Champika Ranawaka are facing jail time and police officers who investigated him for murder and corruption during his term as defence secretary are languishing in remand.
The chilling speech by the President has been widely shared on social media and broadcast on his preferred television channels run by loyalists, Hiru TV and Derana.
Harin Fernando recently issued a scathing criticism of President Rajapaksa referring to him as “Nandasena”, said the country had been “cursed by Sir” and accused Nanadasena Gotabaya Rajapaksa of being involved in the Easter Sunday bombings. “The truth about this conspiracy will one day be out because there is a God above. We know who maintained ties with ISIS. We know what happened,” he said.
In his parliament speech, Fernando accused a five-member cabal of running the country, including media mogul Dilith Jayaweera, in place of career politicians who had been sidelined by the President. Fernando claimed former gun-runner Nissanka Senadhipathi was also part of this ruling cabal and had resumed weapons smuggling with the blessings of the Gotabaya Rajapaksa regime.
“This is what happens when someone who has never even served on a pradeshiya sabha becomes president,” Fernando claimed.
Harin Fernando said Udayanga Weeratunga was engaged in importing sex-workers from Ukraine to Sri Lanka. “18 of those who arrived on the first flight were brought to participate in the sex industry,” the SJB MP charged.
Fernando said the country is being cursed by “Sir’s Easter Sunday conspiracy” and the attempt to pull the wool over the people’s eyes by propagating the myth about clay pots in the river and a cobra at the Kelaniya temple. “The country is cursed because this Government is cutting down forest sanctuaries because it is killing inmates inside prisons because it is inflaming tensions between religions. This is why no matter what they try, they will fail,” Fernando claimed. “This is why we call it the “ස සාපේ” (Sir Curse)” the SJB MP said.
Fernando also said that he was well aware that the regime was attempting to silence critics.
“But I want to tell you there is no reason to be silent out of fear. I will get a shot one day, that’s okay” the SJB Lawmaker said in his scathing statement.

GATAM / January 10, 2021, 38 16Yes he made that threat. For Tamils and Muslims, living under Sinhala rule is like living on top of a volcano. No one knows when it erupts and cremates them. But they seem to be happy to be part of SL! The only lasting and dignified (emphasis) solution is an amicable and equitable split of SL into 3 mono-ethnic nations of Sinhala Only Elam, Tamil Elam and Muslim Elam. Only 15% of the population needs to be relocated. Thereafter everyone will be happy. Even the international community will be happy.
Rohan25 / January 10, 2021, 19 43The Sri Lankan Muslims or Moors are of Tamil ethnicity. Ethnic Tamil Muslims in Sri Lanka are called Moors. Meaning this Moor name used for them has nothing to do with the Moor people from North Africa, but has been used by the Portuguese to describe their religion. Therefore they will be part of Tamil Eelam meaning the areas where they live in the North and East. As ethnic Tamils, they will have the same rights as the Hindu and Christian Tamils and will be allowed to practice their Tamil Sufi Islamic culture that they brought from their original South Indian homeland without hindrance as this is also part of Tamil culture. However not the Arabic culture or Wahabbi/Salafist/Isis forms of Islam. If they want to do this they can relocate to Saudi Arabia, Pakistan or live amongst the Sinhalese and do this, as the Sinhalese deliberately encouraged them to Arabise and practice these extremist intolerant forms of Islam, thinking that this will distance them from their actual Tamil origins and culture and also use this as a tool to marginalize the native Eelam Tamils, especially in the east
GATAM / January 10, 2021 24 22No. Muslims are a distinct ethnic group in SL. If Tamils get Tamil Elam, Muslims must also get Muslim Elam. Thereafter Tamils and Muslims and merge their Elams. No problem. That must happen based on both parties agreeing.
GATAM / January 10, 2021 4 10Can merge.
Rohan25 / January 10, 2021, 11 15What makes them distinct from the rest of the Tamils? Just you because you say so or the Sinhalese to divide and rule the Tamils say so? Or corrupt power-hungry Muslim elite and politicians say so? Their religion? It is a world religion practised by people belonging to many races so just not confined to them to make them a separate ethnoreligious group. Like the Jews, Sikhs, Druze or Yazidi. Even here the Sikhs, Druze and Yazidi still primarily identify themselves as Punjabi, Arab and Kurdish respectively. A little bit of Arab or whatever amongst a few hundred families living down south still does not qualify them or the Muslim masses who are 100% Tamil Dravidian, especially the ones from the north, east and north-west Puttalam. Chilaw, Negombo areas, a separate ethnic group. They are still Tamils who practice Islam. Deliberately now trying to Arabize themselves, discarding their traditional Tamil Islamic dresses and wearing the Thobe, Hijab, Burka, Niqab or Abaya and following Wahhabism instead of their traditional Indian Sufi Islam, still does not make them another ethnic group. Just because you or their politicians and elite say so. They are still Tamil who are trying to act and behave like pathetic Arab clones to justify an artificial ethnicity.
Siva Sankaran Sharma / January 10, 2021, 14 11Gatam this is completely out of context with the current topic but since you go around stating everywhere that Sri Lankan Muslims are not Tamils and a cheerleader for their imagined separate ethnicity. Here is something from a British Colonial officer
To sum up. It has been shown that the 185,000 Moors in the Island fall under two classes, “Coast Moors” and “Ceylon Moors,” in almost equal numbers; that the “Coast Moors” are those Muhammadans who, having arrived from the Coromandel coast or inner districts of South India as traders or labourers, continue steadily to maintain relations of amity and intermarriage with their friends in South India; and that such “Coast Moors” are Tamils. As regards the nationality of the “Ceylon Moors,” numbering about 92,500 out of the 185,000, we have ample reasons for concluding that they too are Tamils,—I mean the masses of them; for, of course, we meet with a few families here and there—say, five per cent, of the community, or about 5,000 out of the 92,500—who bear the impress of an Arab or other foreign descent. Even the small coterie of the Ceylon Moors, who claim for themselves and their co-religionists an Arab descent, candidly admits that on the mother’s side the Ceylon Moors are exclusively Tamil
Siva Sankaran Sharma / January 10, 2021, 11 10All that remains to be proved, therefore, is, that their early male ancestors were mainly Tamils. For this purpose, I have sketched the history of the Ceylon Moors. I have shown the utter worthlessness of a tradition among them that a great colony of Arabs of the house of Hashim made settlements at Beruwala and other parts of the Island, and have adduced reasons for accepting as far more probable the tradition reported by Mr Casie Chetty, that the original ancestors of the Ceylon Moors formed their first settlement at Kayal-paddanam, and that many years afterwards a colony from that town—” the fatherland of the Chonagar “—migrated and settled at Beruwala. I have further shown how similar the history of the Ceylon Siva Sankaran Sharma / January 10, 2021, 11 8Moors is to that of the Coast Moors; how intimately connected they were with each other till the Dutch began to persecute them in Ceylon; how intercourse between the mother-country in South India and Ceylon was arrested about 150, years ago; and how the distinction arose thereafter between the Ceylon Moors and the Coast Moors. By tracing in this manner their history, that is, their descent, I arrive at the conclusion that the early ancestors of the ” Moors,” Ceylon and Coast, were mainly Tamils on the father’s side, as admittedly they are exclusively on the mother’s side. Then, considering their social customs, I have pointed out how closely they are a copy of Tamil institutions. I have also touched upon their physical features and called attention to the opinion of some of our leading doctors of medicine and surgery, that the skull of a Moorman cannot be distinguished from that of a Tamil. In complete confirmation of the inference drawn from these arguments is the evidence afforded by language. The vernacular language of the Moors is, as I have said, Tamil, even in purely Sinhalese districts.
Siva Sankaran Sharma / January 10, 2021, 11 7But, of course, in their case it is not a language only that stamps them as Tamils. Taking (1) the language they speak at home in connection with (2) their history, (3) their customs and (4) physical features, the proof cumulatively leads to no other conclusion than that the Moors of Ceylon are ethnologically Tamils.
Besides The Dutch rulers, who believed that the Moors were only Tamil Muhammadans, other authorities, who have mixed and moved with the people of
Ceylon and taken pains to study them, maybe cited: such as the Rev. James Cordiner, whose duties as Director of all Schools in Ceylon during the administration of Governor North, 1798-1805, afforded him great opportunities of collecting information and judging on all matters connected with the sociology of the Island. At p. 139 of his work on Ceylon, he declares that the
Moors are Tamils by race.
I would mention also the name of Mr Simon Casie Chetty, who was a Member of the Legislative Council of Ceylon for some years since 1838, and whose opinions are recorded in his Gazetteer. The editors of the Ceylon Observer, in their issue of December 10, 1885, said, ” We believe that fully 80 per cent, of the Muhammadans of
Ceylon is Tamils.

The editors of the Ceylon Observer, in their issue of December 10, 1885, said, ” We believe that fully 80 per cent, of the Muhammadans of
Ceylon is Tamils. And Mr A. M. Ferguson, C.m.g., who has lived and laboured in Ceylon
for over fifty years, speaking at a meeting of the Royal Asiatic Society, Ceylon
Branch held on January 26, 1888, observed, in reference to the Paper read on that day, as follows:—” The obvious reason why the marriage customs of the Muhammadans were mainly Tamil was due to the fact, that most of the proselytes made by Muhammadans in South India and Ceylon were from the Tamil race.”
RAVI PERERA / January 10, 2021, 14 25Rohan Thanbi, “Therefore they will be part of Tamil Eelam meaning the areas where they live in the North and East. “Whether it is Muslims or you demalu we Sinhalayas will decide not your email. You demalu are a defeated group of people with no power. Just accept and move on.
Fahim Knight / January 10, 2021, 15 6@Ravi PereraSee how pathetic some people are.
The biggest joke is to compare the colour and facial features
of Moors with local Tamils.
Does Ali Zaheer Moulana look like Ponambalam in colour and features?
in fact, there are Moors from Kandy, especially from Akurana
who. not only look very Sinhalese, they have Sinhala get names and they are the only moors I have ever seen making Sinhala sweets, for their functions.
I was also told in older days the Muslim women would carry on their heads,
the religious ceremonial food to be shared with the villagers to the mosque lead by a TomTom beater, a Sinhala drummer unfortunate.
it’s not Arabization that killed our culture, but Tamil Tablique, Tamil Jamat E Islam, Tamil Toweed Jamath and Tamil Hubuls, Which have replaced our culture by completely erasing our identity and language, culture with deciete wannabe Arab attires.
from one side it’s tragic as the conspiracy has succeeded to such an extent that almost 90% of the ex- Moors both Ceylon moors & Coast Moors both have volunteered to adopt a new ethnicity as Tamil speaking Muslims.
They think by aligning with Tamils they will be better off.
The Tamils will only accept them if they Tamil Speaking Muslims agree that they were low cast diets ( aka Sakilis) who converted to. Islam.
This is exactly what they mean
Rohan25 / January 11, 2021, 2 7Pathetic Arab wannabes. Just citing a few Muslims from the 5% of part Arab but predominantly Dravidian, amongst the Sri Lankan Muslims, does not justify your claim to be Arab. Go to the northeast, Puttalam and even to Slave Island and Maradaa and just look at the features of 99% of the Muslims there or even the photos of the Muslim columnists here. Typical South Indian Tamil Dravidian looks and feature, that they really are. I can also show millions of Tamils especially from Brahmin Chetty and Vellalar communities who are very North Indian or at time Southern European looking. Even within my own family, I have some first cousins and siblings who can pass for North Indians or even dark Italians or Greeks and others very dark-skinned. Stop posting rubbish. It is the same thing with the Sinhalese. The most light-skinned amongst them generally are the Kandyan Radala and most of them are of Tamil Pandian and Naicker descent. Just look at some of the most beautiful actresses in Bollywood they were all Tamils. Vyjanthimala , Waheeda Rehman, Sri Devi, Hemamalini, Rekha, Meenakshi Shshadri. Look at all the other Dravidian South Indian origin actresses like Aishwariya Rai, Deepika, Silpa Shetty
Fahim Knight / January 11, 2021, 9 3@Rohan
even if you stand on your head and stress we are Tamils over my dead body I will never ever accept it,
you can waste your bandwidth with long posts of prejudice, I care to less, You do not possess any credentials ob genealogy or DNA, and again you have no case in hand without clinical proof you have zero cases.
by the way, I have no issues in being a Tamil, especially most Jaffna Tamils I have met are very refined people, they do not stoop down your level of branding people as low cast, especially in areas of high intellect and dynamic advancement in Science, technology not forgetting the advancement if AI, all which will very soon end this high cast/ low cast for good, time is not far.
there must have been something unusaul for tamils ( so called low cast Tamil Muslims)
to. learn their own language writing it Arabic Transliteration and mind you we do not speak Tamil, we speak arwi, its a creole by itself which is not only Tamil; it has quite a lot of Singhala, Arabic and Urdu.
only after the heavy indian.Tamil influence through these 4 new South Indian Islamic creeds tha5 the people idiotically given.up.their own Langauge and script.
our script was never Tamil nor our language.
Rohan25 / January 12, 2021, 5 7Who cares what you accept or not as you belong to one of these pathetic Arab wannabes, who will keep on denying your actual Tamil origin and heritage, all in the name of Islam. The truth is the truth. You must be one of these dangerous brainwashed Salafist and extremists, pathetically going around in Arab clothes or you wearing nice western clothes but forcing your womenfolk to cover up. Your language was never Tamil, Then what was speaking and writing and still speaking and writing in? Gobbledegook.? Pathetic creature, who has lost the argument and now resorting to abuse. The history of the island has always been Sinhalese and Tamil and if you are neither of Sinhalese or Tamil ethnicity but belong to some strange Arab or Moor ethnicity, you have no place here and have no right to claim for anything here

Fahim Knight / January 11, 2021 9 4Rauf Hakeem , under the banner of Muslim Congress has done sweet nothing to the Muslim Community to date, now has called upon Tamil Speaking Muslims to join hands with Tamils who are staging a hartal.
Now this is officially claiming he and the rest of Tamil Speaking Muslims are a part of Tamil separatism. I really pity the Moors who keep electing these people and now even worse they have openly accepted they are part of Tamils , its not going to be like halal and abaya issue now. Now the Muslims will be seen as part of Separatism. The cheap Muslim politicians are leading the community to living hell.

Yes He did not make a threat to Tamils or Muslims Now. He made a threat against Sinhalese and particularly against the Buddhists who speak against the Family Kingdom. He showed that in Prison, murdering the drug dealer, arresting former Military commander and he now accepting that he massacred not only Tamils in 2009 but also Sinhalese in 1989.
leelagemalli / January 10, 2021, 12 3Nothing is achieved for the benefit of the masses, but ONLY self-proclamations and a lot more succeeded in the lines of getting their high crime investigations exonerated – sending the message across the nation that this govt returned to power only for that purpose.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2TuYAB0fxwPEACE AND RECONCILIATION FOR A BETTER FUTURE are NOT SEEN AS THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL. …… all that good governance achieved for the permanent peace is destroyed by MEDAMULANA thugs within 14 months.
With UNHRC sessions ahead of us, this country/nation would definitly be ISOLATED like Iran and like-minded countries sooner than later. Criminals would not care much about the consequences, but poor people will have to bear it.
Today SLFP WHICH is the main constituent of the SLPP govt is distancing from Nandasena’s millitary regime.
Today MUSLIM parties are clearly distancing from Nandasena’s millitary regime.
Tamil parties would never help them or would stand by racism based politics.
Nor would smaller parties stay with them if GOTABAYA would only work with his close confidants (as honourable MP Harin Fernando made it very clear)
Today Srilankan professionals are distancing from Nandasena’s millitary regime. Teachers would not have the respect but MILLITARY men have entered to schools under the leadership of CRIMINAL leaders in power.
Eagle Eye / January 10, 2021 6 13GATAM,
Do you know why your solution will not work? When Sinhalayo gives one foot to Demalu or Muslims these greedy morons try to take one yard.
Instead of taking the trouble to relocate 15% which might not lead to a lasting solution, it is better to increase the number to 25% and send all Indian origin people (Demalu, Muslims) to the homeland of their ancestors across Palk Strait so that Native Sinhalayo and Vedda Eththo can live peacefully in their country. Modi has requested Indians to return to their ancestral homeland. I am not sure whether that includes Dravida slaves taken to different parts of the world by colonial rulers.
PIRABAKARAN / January 12, 2021, 4 2Eagle PissaYou Sinhalayas are the Kallathonis who washed ashore as refugees from Bangladesh/ Orissa to Eelam. Just bugger off to your homeland without talking through your rear end.
Rumble 2021 / January 12, 2021 6 1So what is stopping them from relocating to North(especially north) and East voluntarily?? since Independence?? do some real work to develop those areas too at the same time?? Are Tamils and Muslims awaiting for land powers and police powers under the 13th before they make the move?? This should the natural move for safety as TNA is cooking up another event for their survival as they have done always?? You have a point…yes she could be divided into 4 minimum and the above step should the natural event(not forced event) so the will of the people could be observed??

Now to pay back for their mistake the time is nearing much faster than anybody guessed. Mathus worked for them but faced the lowest treatment by the Royals. After that they repeated a couple of times taking out prisoners and shooting them in unknown places. All democratic countries condemned the riots at Capitol Hill. Did anyone from Lankawe say a word about that? The one who has wound on the back doesn’t pass bending underneath the barbed wire fence. Because Lankawe politicians all know what is the status of their country, but when are accused of war crime only they try to concoct the same on whoever telling them that.
It seems to be, not just minorities, but even SBs & Sinhalese also won’t be able to stay alive until UNHRC come for a deal. Unless otherwise, Europeans want to import shark meat cheap, urgently UN peacekeepers or NATO force or American troops has to get in.

Burt / January 10, 2021, 24 4BS if over a score of countries did not provide free training, arms and intelligence we would still have the war continuing. The only thing he should be taking credit under his command is for the different kind of war crimes the govt is accused of and the inability to clear its name.
GAUTAM / January 10, 2021 14 2Not true. No one gave free weapons. SL bought weapons. If one country refused, SL could always go to another for weapons. e.g. Russia refused to sell some fantastic weapons (due to Indian influence) but SL bought them from Ukraine or China. Same with training. If the USA refused, China would help. When India refused to train, Pakistan agreed. All those are commercial transactions. Not help. Tamils also bought weapons internationally.SL won the war because the war strategy was changed in 2005 December by Gota from a land-grabbing strategy to a killing strategy. SL was bound to win one way or the other under that strategy. Defeat or stalemate was not an option under the strategy. However, that does not mean Gota’s recent threat is OK. It is not. He showed his barbaric side. Totally unacceptable.
Burt / January 10, 2021, 6 1This is one of many:
“The answer, in one word, is “China”. When the US ended direct military aid in 2007 over Sri Lanka’s deteriorating human rights record, China leapt into the breach, increasing aid to nearly $1bn (£690m) to become the island’s biggest donor, giving tens of millions of dollars worth of sophisticated weapons, and making a free gift of six F7 fighter jets to the Sri Lankan air force. China encouraged its ally Pakistan to sell more arms and to train pilots to fly the new planes. And, crucially, China prevented the UN Security Council from putting Sri Lanka on its agenda.”

The so-called Amparai Sinhalese electorate is the showpiece of the Sinhalese ethnic cleansing triumph of the island’s native Eelam Tamils. This may the reason he went there to titillate and arouse Sinhalese racist passions that only came into existence, after the ethnic cleansing of its original native Tamil inhabitants in the 1950s and then settling Sinhalese from outside. They renamed this area from its original name Pattipalai Aru to Galoya.

The former is a Rabid Sinhala-Buddhist Chauvinist Nationalist. The latter is a Psychopath, pure and simple. Both states of mind can exist in the same person and be manifested alternately. That is known as Schizophrenia or maybe Multiple Personality Syndrome, I am not sure which!
Eagle Eye / January 11, 2021 2 7Captain Morgan,
‘Para’ Demalu who faced a humiliating defeat from Native Sinhalayo as happened from 3rd Century BC are suffering from ‘Defeat Syndrome’. Anger, hatred and jealousy are the symptoms of this sickness. You need psychiatric treatment to get over the problem. Get admitted to Angoda hospital. It is free.
PIRABAKARAN / January 12, 2021, 4 2Eagle pissaGet your history right first. All these while you have been barking on this forum that Para Demalu came to Sinhale only when the Dutch brought them from India as tobacco farmers. When did you start learning your fairy tale Mahavansa and discovered that there were Tamil invasions even as early as in 3 rd century BC? Soon you pissa will accept the true history of Eelam which is Tamils are in fact the original inhabitants of Srilanka starting from time immemorial. Ravana was a saivite Tamil king.I can see you know a lot of things about Angoda. I once suggested that you need to be treated there for your mental illness, it appears that you have acted on my advice and been there already. See how enlightened you have now become you are advising others also to get treated like you. Not only that, after getting treated in Angoda, you are at least now accepting there were Tamils In Srilanka in 3 rd century BC. Kudos to you man, I pray that you totally recover from your mental illness then you will be able to accept that the Tamils or Nagas were in Srilanka long before the forefathers of the Kallathoni Sinhalayas got washed ashore here to Eelam when they were banished from their homeland in India by the sea.
Fahim Knight / January 10, 2021, 11 14His entire speech has been
misinterpreted. What he meant was, he is under pressure to deal with the situations the nation is facing with various crimes , he is been requested to handle it with the military command by using his past experience and to consider the Country is at war by all factions of criminals .
for which he had responded by saying he will use disciplinary methods without resorting to politicizing it.4.5 years the past government did sweet nothing and Ranil let terrorism nearly take over the Country. What a load of crap blaming others. If it was true, why didn’t Ranil and his government with all the power arrest Gotabaya ? Please stop lying to the people to cover your utter failure. The President will do what he has to do . Only Those involved in criminal activities, religious extremism, Separatists who want to divide the country; smugglers and illegally destroying the environment *
( Illegally, meaning with no official approval) , need to worry sure the poor Muslims and the honest middle class will benefit and gain protection. I urge the Muslims , besides my disagreement of them changing their ethnicity, which is their fundemenat right of Privilege, I can only give my opinion which I believe is the best.
meanwhile they must approach the President via The Justice Minister for their grievances without allowing to be used as political sheep.
Rumble 2021 / January 14, 2021, 2 0Spot on and is the way we should all play our part to uphold law and order….and a step by step process to lead an orderly life too. Governance is only there to give the framework for us all to play the patriotic part as civic citizens so we Nation Build. Even if we have misgivings in every ministerial position that can all be overcome by people pooling around National parties and have their capabilities available for the same cause is what is needed now. This will naturally lead to a stage where we can all form our own parties now is all about bull is infant of the cart for the journey? We yet to have each MP’s surgery report/action list/milestone and progress reporting for their performance auditing purposes??
Stanley / January 10, 2021, Before the Presidential election we were warned that Gota was like Hitler. Dozens of articles and scores of posts warned of an impending dictatorship. But what has happened? Gota has turned out to be a pleasant and liberal leader. However, his ministers are the same criminals who have infested both major parties all along. Gota’s big mistake was to assume that they were as keen to uplift the nation as he was. They are, and always have been, only in politics to make money.
So his words must be taken in that context. The warning he issued was meant for them, the vultures who live off the poor and hungry. He must get tough, it is the only thing these people understand. A new generation may have his ideals but not the current corrupt politicians. He could start by having Ratwater arrested.
Native Vedda / January 10, 2021 9 3Stanley
I love your eloquent defence of indefensible Gota.
However, it’s not that easy to convince people that a leopard had changed its spots.
“However his ministers are the same criminals who have infested both major parties all along.”
So are his b***s carriers, cronies and members of his clan, brothers, nephews, cousins, …. stepbrother, …. members of saffron brigades and armed forces. Gota lives in alternative reality, ….
“A new generation may have his ideals but not the current corrupt politicians.”
Please let us know what his ideals are/were or will be if any.
Stanley / January 10, 2021, 2 5‘I love your eloquent defence of indefensible Gota.

Thank you. Nor that a Tiger has changed its stripes.
Native Vedda / January 12, 2021 3 1Stanley
“Nor that a Tiger has changed its stripes.”
However a self-proclaimed Strongman with Sinha Le has gone really mad.
Aren’t you worried about Ioma if she is still sharing the bed with a psychopath?
cugan / January 10, 2021 9 2When VP was killed he was in AC room in Colombo but he may referring to V P Balachandra killings how he shot him
Eagle Eye / January 11, 2021, 2 7cugan,
Dumbo, the Secretary of the Ministry of Defense does not go to the frontline. It was his strategy that killed your Sun God who bragged that Tamil terrorists cannot be defeated militarily.
Sinhala Demala fighting started in the 3rd Century BC with Dravida invasions from Hindustan. Always Demalu lost and ran away putting their tails in between their hind legs. Unfortunately, these ‘Para’ Demalu do not learn from their past blunders.
PIRABAKARAN / January 12, 2021 3 2Eagle PissaIf the demalu ran away how come 25 % of Eelam is Still pure Tamil and the rest are also Tamils with a little bangali ( approximately 15% ) infusion. DO you think you Sinhalayas are Aryas? you stupid moron. Karawa, Salagama, Durawa, Govi etc are all full blooded Tamils ( including Malayalis ).
Simon / January 10, 2021, Thank you, Mr President, for letting the PEOPLE of Sri Lanka know who YOU ARE and YOU CAN BE. On hearing this I realized that you are one person who has “Examined” who you are and what you can be. That is a great “Achievement” in this life itself. On my part, I wanted to compose myself by bringing to the memory of what a prominent “Buddha’s Sangha” wrote in a poem that I learned in my school days. That is in “Sinhala” and sorry I cannot translate it to any other language. It is: “Ane Devdatt Nudutu Mokpura”. The main character “Devdatt” ( a cousin of Buddha) was a criminal who wanted to kill Gauthama Buddha and resorted to various tactics to achieve his desire. The “Buddha’s Sanga” who observed this “Criminal” wrote his disgust in a poetic style and said: “What a pity Devdatt, you never saw Moksha”. Recollecting this was enough for me to regain my sanity.
why / January 10, 2021 How Muslim MPs were made to agree to the 20th amendment should be
investigated to extract the truth, in the backdrop of this open threat to
a legislator ! This is what SLPP and Ranil wanted from their choice of
President candidate, the secret of choosing him as the candidate ! And
the voters who wanted him are now reaping the benefits ! There are
signs , they are not here to get back home when asked to by those who don’t
want them ! He can not deliver what is most needed instead , he will
deliver what he knows best, warning to Harin openly is just that !
Rajesh / January 11, 2021 2 1Nandasena? sounds like sadhu in a Buddhist Monastery …
Gotabaya sounds more menacing
Harin may have deliberately used Nandasena to wind up Gota
and Gota fell for it ….
Thiha / January 11, 2021 3 1Most of the commentators have got lost with the most important part of this article.The executive president of Sri Lanka had admitted openly he gave the orders to kill the enemy and his underage son. For these two were discovered together as they tried to flee. They were alive when they were taken into custody and then shot. I am no sympathizer of VP. I think the world is better off with him dead. Given the situation with our law enforcement and justice system, it is better than this happened in the way it did. But this reveals the culprit behind this. It also confirms the often held suspicion about many other such killings and who might be the mastermind in the shadows giving such murderous orders. Not even Adolf Hitler openly admitted to giving such orders. The Nazi’s invented an elaborate web to cover up what they were actually up to in the holocaust. They called it the final solution. The slogan 6MNE was seen on T-shirts worn by the insurrectionist who stormed the US Capitol. It means 6 Million Jews was Not Enough. Just how many would be deemed a good number in Sri Lanka?
why why / January 11, 2021, 3 1I would match him with Donald Trump of Sri Lanka. This is what
he and his team wanted in Sri Lanka . Anti-Muslim while being in
the circle of Muslims. Using Masked Muslims to antagonise the
ordinary Voter Muslims. Their present drama is Playing with Covid
victims. Cremation for Muslims and Kali-Juice for Sinhalese ! At the
end , how long will the Sinhalese take to realise Tamils and Muslims
are being used to fool the Sinhalese? How long are the Sinhalese
going to run with these cheap leaders who have nothing else to offer?
Ajay / January 11, 2021, Harin’s speech was a scathing condemnation of the atrocities Nandasena is committing against the citizens of this country. Two criticisms in particular, which Harin was very bold to place on record in Parliament, has obviously thrown Nandasena off balance. These two horrible crimes are open secrets, but people are afraid to talk about them.
1) Nandasena was the mastermind behind the Easter Sunday terrorist attack. His deep state that continued to function even under Yahapalanaya staged this false flag attack to bring him to power by penetrating and steering the ISIS-fanatic Zahran Group.
2) Nandasena has allowed his kin, the criminal Udayanga, to bring sex workers from Ukraine under the guise of reviving tourism without proper screening for Covid. Many of them have now tested positive for the virus. What was the urgency to bring these ‘tourists’ from Ukraine, a backward economy – when hundreds of Sri Lankans virtually abandoned in the streets due to the pandemic have been starving and dying almost a year now, unable to return. Why? Is it because Sinhala Buddhist ultra-nationalists find white-skinned women more alluring? Well now you’re in bad luck – they have got Covid.
Eratne / January 11, 2021, 2 3NGR, you didn’t kill Prabha., It was done by our valiant forces. Those days you were only the Supplies Officer grabbing some Jarawa while doing that job. Do you remember how and when you left the army and the country? You are a coward, using your position to get persons under you to do all dirty things.
Lasantha Pethiyagoda / January 11, 2021, Fiery speeches in parliament are good entertainment to a beleaguered nation reeling from the economic meltdown and the covid-19 pandemic. Immature and tribal leaders are irked by any perceived slight to them by a lesser person and help rouse their wrath. “Off with his head !” was what Alice in Wonderland observed as the ides of March wore on…
PIRABAKARAN / January 12, 2021, 5 1Perea ThambiYou are an immigrant from South Of India, aren’t you ? Why are you barking like a para Sinhalaya from Bangladesh? Know your origin man before you write. Don’t display your ignorance in this forum.
