‘Sinhala Only’ was the right policy”-Endorsing the views of Hugh
Karunanayake.
Posted on January 2nd, 2018
*By M D P DISSANAYAKE*

It is only Sri lanka that can protect and advance Sinhala language, its
associated culture and heritage.  India can look after Tamil language.  Mr
SWRD, though in power for relatively short period of time, made the change
to place Sri Lanka at the highest place. Those who disagree with this
policy, please go through the final examination results of BA. BSc. MSc.
Phd., Chartered Accountants, Surveyors, Lawyers, Doctors., you can find for
yourself until SWRD came into power, almost 85% of the lists of finalists
were: Arsekularatnam, Argumugam, Annamuththu, Arunachalam,Balendran,
Balachandran, Balakrishnan, Chenniah, Vigneswaran, etc. the endless lists
from A to Z of Tamils.

Higher Education was confined to Tamils. Through systematic elimatination,
those who progressed up the ladder were Tamils or those with Sinhala names,
but puppets of Tamils or Muslims.  Lets see the First Cabinet of Sri Lanka:

D S SENANAYAKE

H W AMARASURIYA

SWRD BANDARANAIKE

GEORGE E DE SILVA

A E GUNATILLEKE

SIR OLIVER GUNATILEKE

SENARAT GUNAWARDENE

T B JAYAH

J R JAYAWARDENE

JOHN KOTALAWELA

A E NUGAWELA

G G PONNAMBALAM

LALITHA RAJAPAKSE

A RATNAYAKE

DUDLEY SENANAYAKE

C SITTAMPALAM

C SUNDARALINGAM

EDWIN WIJERATNE

When SWRD formed MEP to make Sinhala Official Language, none of these upper
class were his comrades.

The 1952 cabinet of Mr Dudley Senanayake continued with:

EDWIN WIJERARATNE

C SITTAMPALAM

G G PONNAMBALAM, but added:

   1. NADESAN

V NALLIAH

M C M KALEEL

Mr SWRD did not hesitate to eliminate Tamil domination from the Cabinet, he
only had C A S         Marikar, a Muslim as a minister., but brought in
those who fought for Sri Lanka and Sinhala Language for the past several
years, including Greats such as:

PHILIP GUNAWARDENE

P H WILLIAM DE SILVA

W DAHANAYAKE

T B ILLANGARATNE.

The foundation laid down by SWRD in 1956  had produced encouraging results,
whereby boys and girls of schools and colleges throughout the island are
not advancing to the University education.  This disliked by Tamils such as
Sambandam and Sinhala cronies like Ranil Wickremasinghe, Chandrika.
Chandrika is already eliminated from the political map of Sri Lanka, other
remaining anti Sri Lankan cronies will have their days numbered.

*Sinhala and English ought to be Official Languages of Sri Lanka  with
National Language status for Tamil in North and East.  This policy should
be given highest priority in its implementation to ensure the pride of
place for Sinhalese.  *

   I agree.

   Only 4% of the population could speak English in 1956. It was ridiculous
   to continue English Only in 1956. All stable democracies recognise their
   majority’s language as the only (emphasised) official language. However,
   today, English is understood by more people and it deserves to be an
   official language.

   Tamil Nadu language must be recognised as the sole language of the north
   and one of 3 languages in the east.

   Sri Lanka is the only country that recognises Tamil Nadu language as an
   official language and Tamil as a disticnt ethnic group – a very dangerous
   combination.

   We;; well “Kohedha Yanne Nangi, Malli? Malle Pol”

   Most of our Sinhala educated Nangis are slavering in Muslim countries
   and we barely live off the takings.

   The Indian Colonial Parasites are becoming and has become wealthier
   since 1956.

   Thanks to SWRG and his henchmen financed by Indian Colonial Parasite
   business men and women.

   Most of the money the Nangis sent us end up in India on gold jewllery,
   sarees, three wheelers and Battas, building material, Thosai and Wades and
   of course on Vettis.

   Why did this great cunning and shrewd man SWRD got his kids English
   educated while the masses were deprived of similar education?

   Why did this man only nationalize Sinhala businesses?

   Another rare good one form MDP which I agree 100%.

   *The consequece of the first paragraph is “why TAMIL DO HATE SINGALAM
   Part 1 to part infinity”.*
   This is also called discrimination,…… to genocide.
   Nothing more nothing less.

   Please go back to the examination pass list names appeared before 1973,
   no need to go back to 1948. if form today the percentage of Tamil names
   appear is the same are pre 1974, then we have achieved RECONCILLATION (by
   whoever started to make in non-political).
   Otherwise it will be GENOCIDE, until that list comes back again.

   This is why, for 20 years we should have FONSEKA’s rule for the North (
   as they voted him anyway). Then the real reconcilliation if possible.

   @Christie

   Had English only continued, they may not even live or be working as
   prostitutes for Indians. Communist insurgents would have succeeded and Sri
   Lanka would have ended up like North Korea, Vietnam, Cuba or Burma (without
   their industries). Their first target for murder, nationalisation,
   confiscation, sexual assault, etc. would have been English fluent people.

   JVP insurrections failed because most people found they could deal with
   the government despite failures. The governing ‘elite’ was not as alien as
   prior to 1956.

   Don’t forget over 80% of the people voted for Sinhala Only (SLFP and
   UNP). Old communists that opposed it could not even find candidates to
   contest.

   I know the people who benefited from the Sinhala only was the lower
   middle class of Sinhalese who had a standard of living above the majority
   of the other like lower level government servants. They knew a bit of
   Sinhala and bit of English and they made money doing translations .

   As soon as Banda came in he stopped the Sinhala settlements in the Dry
   Zone and elsewhere. Most of the developments and Industrialization was
   stopped. Central schools were destroyed.

   By the was Most some of our Nangis are prostitutes in the Middle East
   and they serve Male Indian workers from India. In doing so they end up
   loosing their kidneys .

   Your great Sihala heros were funded by the Indian Cabal; Tamils,
   Keralayans, Paresis, Boras and Sindhis.

   This Indian Cabal had particular members to paired to finance the
   Sinhala hero politicians.

   Banda_ Hidarmains and Kundanmals

   Illangaratne: Hidramanis. Guess who financed his Films?

   Phillip – Gnanams

   N M Perera- Captains

   The whole SLFP is an Indian and Indian Colonial Parasites project. They
   decided the winning formula. Sinhala only was one of the elements.

   Chandirika tells the story of her father. At least she is open about it.

   Remember Dhanayaka contested with 100 candidates who was financed again
   by the Indian Colonial Parasites.

   Communist insurgents the JVP is another Indian terrorist arm financed by
   India. It started with S D Bandaranayake with North Korea and was hijacked
   by Indian interests. Eswarans were a leadin financier. India managed to
   kill fair number of Sinhalese. Socialists like Shanmugadhasan, Bala Tampoe
   were the Gurus.
