A Sinhala Army? Think again!

The Tamil Tigers have the Tamil diaspora thinking that the Sri Lankan Military is a 'Sinhala Army'. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Sri Lanka Army, Navy and Air Force recruits men and women from all ethnic groups and from all walks of life. The rich and the poor all enlist to protect the beautiful island of Sri Lanka.

This is not a Sinhala VS Tamil conflict. This has always been Sri Lanka VS Tamil Tigers

I like to remind those who have forgotten of the sacrifices made by the men and women of our armed forces. Today we remember two, both Muslims.



MAJOR TUAN DILSHAN SALLAY of The Sri Lanka Army lost his life in the LTTE rocket attack in Jaffna in 2001



TUAN SAM RAJUDIN of The Sri Lanka Navy who lost his life in the LTTE Attack on Poonaryn in 1993. He joined The Navy in 1985.

I urge the Sri Lankan Ministry of Defence to release images of those who perished so we can honour them. Tamils, Muslims, and Sinhalese fought hard to protect all of Sri Lanka's people.

Rest in peace brave sons and daughters of Sri Lanka. As the Muslims would say 'May you attain Jannah'.

My uncle is a high ranking Tamil officer in the Sri Lanka Army. He enlisted in the 90's after the Tigers blew up the Central Bank building. My mother worked across the street from Central Bank and she was blinded by shrapnel. She lost sight in both her eyes thanks to these blood thirsty bastards ltte.

RIP brave sons. We must also acknowledge the many brave men and women who died on the side of the LTTE. Even though they fought Prabhakaran's war they were courageous and brave sons and daughters of Sri Lanka too.

Verdict is in; Government of Sri Lanka wants Tamil civilians dead. Sending aid away while there is not enough milk powder for babies or medical supplies for the injured.. hiding behind paper work when their UK embassy and other officials were notified of the mission..

If they followed Buddhist precepts (they claim Buddhism is their official primary faith), Sri Lanka would not be in such a mess & they would be an Asian economic tiger. The kind of tiger which benefits all!

There won't be peace in Sri Lanka until they have freedom of the press, embrace the federal idea, take steps to reform their military/police Re: ethnic tolerance and allow NGO's access to all the IDP camps.

Then they should kill Muralitharan first, he is playing cricket for them. Actually Sri Lanka's vice captain of the national cricket team is a Tamil.
