Unarmed terrorists in Sri Lanka

The latest post by Peramune Rala titled 'Population jihad, case study from Eastern province' prompted me to write this post. His posts have been real eye openers with ground breaking revelations. His latest post discusses a very important issue which will create an unimaginable scale danger to the country in the near future-the huge population growth of Muslims. As has been highlighted by many concerned observers with raised eye brows, in few years time there will be many adverse outcomes of this phenomenon.  Though this is common to other part of the country too it is quite apparent in the Eastern province. (And this has not confined to Sri Lanka along too)
One of the quite visible outcomes of this has come to the public limelight in the form of mass scale land grabbing happening in the Eastern Province. A few examples will suffice to realize the great danger that lay ahead.  This uncontrolled population explosion has led to the encroachment and grabbing of lands belonging to the State and lands belonging to other communities leading tensions among the them.  These lands include lands belonging to the department of forest and department of archeology etc. And also lands belonging to Sinhalese and Tamils are encroached or grabbed in an unprecedented scale. The brunt of the damage is born by the poor Sinhalese as they are the minority in the province especially in the Ampara District. Incidentally, they have become unfortunate victims of discriminations by the racist Tamil and Muslim government servants in the districts.  Most of the cases poor Sinhalese are intimidated with death threats and are driven from their ancestral lands. This is the same case of the many Buddhists archeological sites and temples. Those lands are grabbed with the politicians' support. This happened in a greater scale when the Muslim fundamentalist Minister Ashrof was in power. The best case in point, as known to many, is Deegvapi. What happened in Deegvapi is history now. But what is unknown to many is the fact that the land grab which became the limelight of attention to many on those days goes on in the same scale as before. The vast numbers of acres of land in Degavapi has been grabbed now.  But the department of archeology is in deep slumber, perhaps due to a couple of reasons: The political support behind this land grab is so strong that the officials at the department are in a helpless situation or the officials at the   Archeological department are being bribed not to take any actions or the intrusion of Muslim officials into the department of the archeology in the Ampara district.
 A few more examples will suffice to realize the great danger that lay ahead.  A few years ago Vanagamua was flourishing Sinhala village in the Akkaraipattu DS division in Ampara District.(this village is a Purana Village ).But now the village name has changed into " Vankamam", a highly populated Muslim village with few mosques. This happened in less than 05 years time.  This is the fate of many other Sinhala villages in the Eastern province. The population growth among the Muslims is such that many acres of lands belonging to the department of forest have been grabbed resulting in mass scale deforestation in Kuchchaveli (Kusalaveliya) in Trincomalee. Just before the war started Kuchchavlei was a small fishing village with a few mud thatched houses. At present Kuchcaveli is a highly populated Muslim area with many thousands families. And also   Kanthankudi in the Batticaloa district was reported to have been the area with the highest population density in the whole South Asia. This was reported about two decades ago.
This intentional population growth by Muslims aimed at becoming the Majority community in Sri Lanka is surely setting the stage for the next terrorists' war though it is unarmed for the moment.

Mrs. Amirthalingam’ s expression of gratitude to the Police officer who killed her beloved husband’s assailants: a story of bizarre irony of fate of Eelam proponents

Media reported recently that the wife of late Amirthalingam had expressed her gratitude to the police constable who shot dead the three assailants of her husband killed 21 years ago. It is a bizarre irony of fate that a wife of a staunchest proponents of Eelam expressed her gratitude to a person belonging to the community who Eelamist's consider as their arch 'enemies'-the Sinhalese. Above all, he was from the Sri Lanka police whom Eelamist refer as the 'occupational Sinhala army or police who are hell bent to kill Tamils'.    
Amirthalingam's wife was also an ardent supporter of the Eelam dream. She was once heard declaring in a public meeting held in Jaffna in late 70s that the Sinhalese should be skinned to death and then their skin should be used to make shoes.  What a bizarre turn of events! For Amirthalingams the LTTE terrorists were "our boys". 
The Sinhalese police officer displayed this daring act knowing very well that his life was at a great risk. The assailants and the target are both consider the latter's protector as a one from their arch 'enemies', the Sinhala community. The Sinhalese policeman could have easily fled from the scene leaving the two parties to settle their scores having known very well that both the assailants and their target were perusing a same goal-achieving the Eelam.         
Mrs. Amirthalingam came to Sri Lanka in a gap of 21 years and made a visit to the house of the Sinhalese policeman/bodyguard who shot dead the three LTTE terrorists who killed her husband. Her son had also accompanied her to the policeman's house in Kegalle and both the mother and the son had reportedly broken in tears while embracing him as if they saw their own affectionate son/brother after a long period of time. Mrs. Amirthalingam had reportedly thanked President Rajapaksha for elimination the LTTE. The LTTE monster created by Amirthalingams turned towards them and eliminated most of its creators along with thousands of Tamils of whom they claim to have been the sole representatives. It is the same Sinhalese 'enemies' who saved them and paved the way for their creators to return to their motherland without fear of blown by human bombs!     
Sri Lanka's armed forced displayed the similar type of courageous and humanitarian acts on numerous occasions sacrificing their own lives and limbs, the latest being the world's largest rescue operation when they rescued the thousands of Tamil civilians at the last stages of war when the so called 'guardians' and the 'protectors' of the Tamils used them as a protective shield risking their lives. The history of the conflict is replete with similar daring and humanitarian acts on the part of our security forces but they are swept under the carpet by the Eelamists in order to furtherance their Eelam dream.
