Eelamists demand an absence of Sinhalese Buddhist heritage in N& E: A case of undoing what Mahinda did in reviving Buddhist heritage in the regions?

As was quite expected Eelmists have started demanding an absence of any signs of Sinhalese Buddhist heritage in the North and East. This news item is about their demand to stop the construction of a Buddhist temple in the North by requesting from the current president. President Mahinda Rajapaksha ' s administration did a great deal of work in renovating some destroyed Buddhist places of worship with the support of Security Forces. Protection for a considerable number of ruins of Buddhist temples was given deploying Security Forces and members of Civil Defence Force, especially in the East. This is precisely one of the reasons why the Eelamists, the Western Christian Imperialists, their stooges here and Muslim Fundamentalists loathe Rajapakshas. It is certain now that whatever Mahinda's administration did in reviving the lost Sinhala Buddhists heritage in the North and East will get undone. 


It is primarily the bogus and fabricated history of Tamils in Sri Lanka, especially in North and East that has been keeping the Eelam dream alive. As is common knowledge to many the history of much of the Tamils in North and East doesn't go beyond the Dutch period as it was the Dutch Colonists who brought the largest chunk of Tamils from South India to cultivate tobacco in the North and East regions of the country. 


Erasing and distorting original Sinhala place names have been a time tested modes operandi by Eelamists when inventing a fabricated history of Tamils in the island. Most of the original place names in the North and East in general and in Jaffna peninsula in particular had Sinhala names which have been Tamilinized later to support a bogus history. 


I highlighted this in my numerous posts in the past. Following is one of such posts that show how such original Sinhala place names have been Tamilinized. 


 Tamilinized Sinhala place names in Jaffna


The Tamilinzed Sinhala place names and the Buddhist archaeological sites in the North and East of Sri Lanka has always been an interesting aspect of study for anyone interested in learning the true history of this country.  


It is a well recognized fact that the bogus Tamil homeland theory in the North and East of  Sri Lanka is a just a creation of power hungry elite Vellala and Christian Tamil politicians of Jaffna as highlighted by Tamil scholars themselves. Blinded by this illusionary theory the Tamil community in Sri Lanka had to bear the brunt of the destruction for the last three decades.


The names of the places in Jaffna specially shed more light to unearth the true history of the country. Following example show that the most of the Sinhala names' latter part has been Tamilinzed while the first part remains in most of the cases in the original forms:


Sinhala                                  Tamil


goda                 -                     kotteai

gama                -                     cam

gala                  -                     kallu

puraya              -                     puram

maluwa             -                     malai

amuna              -                     munai 

watta                -                     thottam

deepa               -                     theev

ganga               -                     aru

wava                -                     kulam


Following examples of places in Jaffna district show how those place names got the Tamil names for Tamil usage.
