We must counter LTTE misinformation campaign abroad - Mahanayaka Theras

To the Most Venerable Udugama Sri Buddharakita Mahanayake Thera Of the Asghiriya Chapter.
Dear Highness,
Forgive me if I make any mistakes. I respect lord Buddha, he sits on my table resides in my heart and guide my daily life. But I am a branded Tamil.

Here is an excerpt from Buddhism translated into English

“Take therefore the self as the lamp. Take the self as the refuge.
Take yourself to no external refuge. Hold fast as a refuge to the truth.
Seek not for refuge to anyone besides yourself
Work out your salvation with diligence.

Dear highness how old are you? What do you know about the atrocities committed by successive government sponsored terrorisms? Lets no get into an argument.
What I am asking you is what does you and the Singhalese want from the Tamils. You openly reply to this and depending on this reply either we will escalate or negotiate. The war has shifted to the international forum on the ideological front, where justice will be the winner. It is not a Singhalese-Tamil war, it is war between the evil and the good. The good will win. You decide which is the evil.

I will tell you what the Tamils want. The Tamils want to be accepted as Sri Lankans. That means we keep religion, language, discrimination, categorization out of the government. The constitution must be irrecoverably amended to proclaim that all citizens of Sri Lanka are Sri Lankans not Singhalese, Tamils or Muslims or Buddhist, Hindus, Islamite or Christians.
If you are so confident that the Tamils are wrong why not we discuss this in a Town Hall meeting. Recently we had three town Hall meetings in Toronto Canada. The Singhalese in Canada could have participated and made their case. But only the Sri Lankan Spies were there.
On a previous occasion we asked Mr.Mahinda Rajapaksa to participate in a Town Hall meeting so that we can get his thoughts out, fixed it and put it back in his psyche, then he goes back to Sri Lanka and tell his Modayas (Educated), Golayas (Illiterate) and the Frogs (Self centered) that there is a world out there. A world that has left us behind!

When you are ready for town hall meeting we will make all necessary arrangements with the Police, RCMP, CSIS to provide you with maximum security.
We would prefer both the President and the Highness.
You and the President can also tour some of the world-class facilities we operate with our own money. You will judge what your country missed and what the Tamils are capable of.
My Name is Subra S.Massey, my email is and I maintain website.

We must counter LTTE misinformation campaign abroad - Mahanayaka Theras

KANDY: It is of paramount importance for our ambassadors to counter the LTTE’s misinformation campaign launched internationally and to enlighten the international community on the true situation in the country, said Asgiriya and Malwatte Prelates when the Ambassador-Designate to U.S.A. Jaliya Wickremasuriya called on them to receive their blessings.
“Certain ambassadors have still failed to convince the international community of the nitty-gritty of the ethnic conflict”, the prelates stressed. “It is a national duty to be performed by every citizen in the interest of his Motherland.”
The Most Ven. Udugama Sri Buddharakkhitha Maha Nayaka Thera of the Asgiriya Chapter said by now most of the countries have been able to identify the true nature of the LTTE and the situation can be further ameliorated if our ambassadors commit themselves to it.
When the LTTE lets loose it misinformation campaign it is not for us to remain silent. The Most Venerable Mahanayaka Thera urged Buddhists living in the USA as well to exert their benign influence to counter the false propaganda carried out by the LTTE.
“The Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims lived together in total peace and especially the Sinhalese and Tamils never experienced serious problems between them. What remains is a crisis caused by a group of terrorists,” the Most Venerable Mahanayaka Thera said.
Ven. Suriyagoda Jinasiri Thera and Col. Prasanna Wickremasuriya, Vice-Chairman Sri Lanka Airport and Aviation Services Ltd also participated.
