The price of the failure to decolonize

The world is condemning the assasination of the journalist Lasantha Wickramatunga in Sri Lanka. The government should certainly take action to catch the culprits. It is also worth noting how and why the Sri Lankan Government investigators missed the LTTE's art of recruiting female suicide cadres by double victimizing them, but somebody from a far away country could reveal these sensitive information as shown in the following book. This revelation is a good proof to say that unnecessary delays and lack of focus in the Government bureacracy is Sri Lanka's best enemy. These delays are direct results of Sri Lanka's lack of interest in clearing colonial practices of running the Government.

The book "Dying To Kill: The Allure of Suicide Terror (Hardcover)" says:

"Three Tamil women were raped by perpetrators who spoke Sinhalese.The attacks were not reported, other than to the int'l aidorganization, and yet they were not long after approached byrepresentatives of the LTTE and recruited as ultimately 'BlackTigresses.' to save the honor of their family after their rape. Thesame int'l org reported that the original 'Sinhalese' rapists werereally Tamils, (and that this was a 'set up.')

Two of the three women were executed after arranging to speak with theauthor of the book."

The Government investigations into the arson attack on Sirasa TV is now begining to understand that it was a planned attack by Sirasa TV itself to claim a huge insurance compensation. Just two hours after the fire, they had started telecasting from a different place to which they had moved their important equipment in secrecy. It is also speculated that LTTE was behind planning and sponsoring the attack to attract intenational attention. Therefore, we request the Government to give extra protection to Tamil civilians and other media organizations critical of the Government due to high risk of an LTTE sponsored attack on them.

Insurance fraud is big business in Sri Lanka. The question is, why would govt. want to tarnish its image when it's in the peak of popularity? In the same token, why wouldn't Sirasa want to boost its image when its in the peak of unpopularity? When Warapakash at the Pera Eng. Fac. was murdered the blame was put on ragging. Not knowing to many, Warapakash, a strong EPDP supporter, and whose father was a EPDP organizer in Vavnia, was murdered by the LTTE on the guise of ragging. Those who involved were released because of lack of evidence, while the prime suspect left for Vanni--not to be found. Has anyone watched “Usual Suspects” lately?

I would like to see this process termed as decolonizing in the following manner.

The rulers who colonized us came from a totally different social-economic environment, and without much of a sense attempted to influence and inflict their respective ways of living to a totally different environment. The concept of diversity we talk about in the modern era at an individual level did not seem to exist, or more accurately did not understand the value of, at the time even at larger social groups. Even after being decolonized, our governments, until the current President Honorable Mahinda Rajapakse, who bravely fought against a very harmful dictatorship at one important juncture of our history, took over in 2005, we seemed to have missed this point of diversity and autonomous but peaceful operation. Now, since we are on the right track, we the academics of Sri Lanka, staying locally as well as abroad, need to support the President and the government wholeheartedly with our constructive criticism for the sake of humanity and our future generations.

Let us all agree to this commitment now!
