  1. Imaginary unity and reconciliation between the Tamils and the Sinhalese, within a unitary state is leading the Sinhalese nowhere except into fantacy and a national funeral.

    The Government of Sri Lanka(GOSL) is deliberately covering a sceptic wound and pretending that it will be healed, yet clinging on to its unwritten rule of political decorum in practice for the past 40 years – Not to grant the legitimate right of self determination to Tamils in the North East.

    Any Sinhalese and any of the Sinhala media advocating the self determination of Tamils are branded as traitors, humiliated and rejected.

    A wounded society can never be healed by thrusting intimidation, violence and fear on it.

    Tamil political politeness, patience and passive resistance of the type of Dr Martin Luther King Jr and Mahatma Gandhi for about 20 years, till 1979, has not cretwed the appropriate response by the Sinhalese even now.

    The then political expressions of Tamils; similar to the present expressions of the people of Syria, Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, Libiya and other Arab countries were suppressed with military occupation and brutal violence by the state, leading ultimately to Tamil genocide.

    Instead of speeding up towards self destruction and dmise, the Sinhalese must work for their survival as a nation.

    The Commonwealth heads of state meeting in Perth Australia, have an obligation to bring transparency, accountability, Human Rights and justice in SL to prevent the demise of a felloiw nation.
