    Criminals and terrorists can get away from their ill acts in the North and East, if they impose the interests of India and the West. Under the good governance a Canadian Tamil is free to carry on his criminal acts in Jaffna.

    A thorn among Peter’s children – Mariavalan Karunanithi Peter – Alias Inpan

    My father chased him out from our house when he was fifteen due to his uncontrollable behaviors. He landed in Canada with the help of my Aunt. However, he didn’t continue his studies nor learned any skill to have a regular job. As far as I know he doesn’t have a car or house in Canada. He has been a trouble maker since he entered into his teenage life. Toronto Police banned him from entering the street of my elder brother, because he tried to kill my elder brother. Inpan has been married to a lady in the Eastern Europe and has a child. Few years ago he has cheated a Tamil girl in Jaffna as a single man never married, later on registered to her. Few weeks later he left her after sexually abusing her and taking financial advantage. Still police is looking for him in relation to this case. (Victim has reported to Jaffna Police, for details please contact Sountheram on 021 222 6056) In 2015 Inpan physically abused his younger sister, when we reported to the police he disappeared from Jaffna. Last month he broke our house and entered without informing to any of us. I asked him to open the door; he sprayed pepper spray into my eyes. I couldn’t see for the entire night until I got a treatment from the hospital. I reported to the Jaffna police about this matter. Next day he disappeared well before the police arrived, but he took my Australian passport, Sri Lankan NIC and smart phone.

    He hasn’t even completed GCE O/L. He hasn’t attended my parents’ funeral nor contributed one rupee for their funeral expenses. Basically, he is a thug but pro LTTE. He hasn’t attended my parents’ funeral but wants Eelam. He has been having regular contact with Mrs. Sountheri Watson who lives in our street; however she has refused to reveal Inpan’s contact details to Jaffna police or to me. Still uneducated fools and criminals have plenty of support in Jaffna after thirty years of brutal war. India and the West love this kind of fools in order to impose their interests. Tamil uneducated fools and criminals continue to have false status in Tamil community. In the past weapons gave false status to fools and criminals in the name of freedom fight, now foreign passports and dollars. These kinds of false status will continue to create setbacks for Tamils. Politically immature Tamils who live in the Western countries continue to insult Gandhi by their policies. They think that they can achieve something significant for Sri Lankan Tamils by dancing according to the West. This is utter foolishness, when you insult Gandhi you have nothing to gain. No other race in Asia has ever eliminated their own intellectuals as Sri Lankan Tamils, especially Jaffna Tamils. This is the reason I call them as ‘Dangerous creatures of Asia.’ I have exposed about the Sri Lankan Tamils to the world leaders in details. Therefore, do not expect any significant move by the UN against the Sri Lankan government at the UNHRC in March 2017. This year I am also planning to publish a book about the Sri Lankan Tamils under the title of ‘Dangerous creatures of Asia.’


    Sri Lankan Tamils’ problem was sorted long time ago, but the Tamil leaders weren’t smart enough to accept it. Tamil leaders always end up in wrong side, and look for ways to create disasters not solutions. In the 1940s the British offered a solution for Tamils to go separate, but the Tamil leaders said ‘We’ll live together with Sinhalese’. Second opportunity came when G G Ponnambalam was the leader; Sinhalese generously agreed for 40:60 solution even though Tamils’ population wasn’t 40% at that time. But Tamil leaders rejected it and wanted 50:50; later on decided to take arms from New Delhi to kill their fellow countrymen. Then the third opportunity came through Indo-Lanka agreement. Again the Tamil leaders rejected the good offer, but decided to listen to the West, and turned their guns towards their fellow Tamils, Muslims, Sinhalese and Indians.

    If Tamil leaders have little brain, little love for their people they would have found a solution long time ago. Tamil leaders are the least when it comes to honoring smart people. Tamils don’t know the value of unity; the foreign powers can do wonders among Tamils because of their divisions. Jealousy is eating Tamils. Tamils would do anything to undermine their fellow Tamils, even if they have to join with foreign powers. I have been living in Jaffna since last August 2015. I have been to many public events. Indian High Commission and the Westerners are the VIPs for those events, but not smart Tamils or Sinhalese. Therefore, sharing power with Tamils is sharing power with foreign powers; this will lead to disaster. Literally the Sri Lankan government has to be on its knees to please the foreign powers; if it shares power with Tamil leaders.



    Where were those Tamil leaders, including Tamil diaspora leaders, the Western leaders, especially the United Nations when the Tamil armed groups were mercilessly gunned down each other group members; and assassinating political leaders and intellectuals far more than any other terrorist groups in the world? Do you see evolution in Tamils who conducted the Asia’s longest brutal civil war for more than three decades? Do you see evolution in Tamils who assassinated far more leaders and intellectuals than any other terrorist organization in the world? The answer is no; therefore forget about devolution of power for Tamils. Don’t even think about federalism. Tamils are still under the firm grip of foreign powers which transformed young Tamils as ruthless terrorists in the world. Tamils are still faithful to foreign powers. Therefore, giving power to Tamils is giving power to foreign powers. If we give power to Tamils surely we will lose our trump card as a country located in the strategic location of the Indian Ocean.

    The Tamil leaders are not smart enough to find a solution. Therefore, Tamils won’t find a solution. It doesn’t matter whether Tamils cry to Indians or the Westerners; there won’t be a solution. You will get zero answer; if you multiply anything by zero. Likewise, Tamils will get zero results, if they continue to multiply their votes to elect foolish leaders. Tamils won’t go anywhere by avoiding smart Tamils; they will continue to go backward. Tamils have achieved nothing by conducting the Asia’s longest brutal civil war for three decades with the help of the foreign powers. Tamil leaders have the ability to destroy Sri Lanka and South Asia, as they have done for the last three decades. The West has been using Sri Lankan Tamils to get a foothold in Sri Lanka to dominate the Indian Ocean. Tamil leaders don’t learn, but blindly follow the foreign powers. Therefore, Tamil leaders need to be watched and guided carefully; instead of sharing power with them.

    “Mahinda Rajapaksa’s Media Secretary and the Chairman of the CSNTV in Sri Lanka. ( Rohan Weliwita was deported back to Sri Lanka upon his arrival in Singapore this week, by the Singapore Immigration and Emigration officials, who initially interrogated him for over three hours, before deporting him. He was scheduled to participate in the Broadcast Asia Exhibition, in Singapore”

    Singapore government and Good governance leaders all are under the influence of the Western Power. The Rajapaksas and their friends are target, because they all are friends of China. The good governance leaders will continue to destroy the Rajapaksas and their friends with the help of the West, as Tamils have done in the past. However, the Rajapaksas must play wisely to survive till the next election. When MR was in power he never sold other Sinhalese or Tamil leaders to foreign power to become president. That is why I like Mahinda Rajapaksa, Tamil diaspora and good governance leaders are so cheap, because they sell their own people to foreign power to have money, power and fame. Sri Lankans are very resilient people, they have defeated cheap diaspora and they will defeat cheap government in due time.

    Why the Rajapaksa administration which has eliminated the most ruthless terrorist group has been constantly under attacks?

    Let’s talk in perspective….

    Where were those Tamils who have been accusing the Rajapaksa administration for mismanagement when the Tamil armed groups mercilessly gunned down each other group members; and assassinated leaders and intellectuals far more than any other terrorist groups in the world?

    Do the Westerners have the right to point finger at the Rajapaksas?

    More than one million people were killed in Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq. But no-one was held accountable for those innocent people’s deaths. However, the West is keeping the records of others and exposing them to the world, in order to occupy the moral high ground. The Western Countries will never admit their atrocities; if they do then they can’t keep themselves on top.

    Whatever you have learned in Aus or any other country in the west should be brought to SL as SL need good and honest people. One could influence the few relatives and friends back in the island to live a honest and hard working life. Why not have a small business and employ a few people and feel the life there which might shock you. Then you will agree that one have to clean the country from the bottom of the population to the top, where their culture has to be changed in line with what we see in the West, where every one wants to settle. The conditions and lifestyles that we enjoy abroad is denied to our people deliberately by the crooked politicans,where they eventually wants to settle with the looted money. This is the folly of the third world and people must take the blame for being ignorant enough to be taken for a ride.
