Mahinda Rajapakse –President 19.11.2005 – 09.01-2015 (Part-01)
He is a Buddhist chauvinist. He was engaged in destroying the Tamil race and converting Sri Lanka to a Sinhala island.
He had committed Tamil genocide in a manner, which was more atrocious than that committed by J.R.Jayawardane.
It was during his period that so many innocent civilians were abducted in white vans and murdered. Also, journalists were abducted and murdered. Furthermore, Tamil politicians underwent planned assassinations. Also, schoolteachers and students were abducted, raped and then murdered and buried. He commenced a war with Tamil Tigers, violating a peace deal by the Tamil Tigers. He also banned the supply of food and medicines to the Tamils’ homeland, thus bringing an economic sanction and thereby made the Tamil people suffer with famine and disease, thus committing genocide of Tamils. On top of this, by banning the supply of milk used by babies, he caused the deaths of newly born and young babies.
During the war between the S.L army and Tamil Tigers, all NGOs were sent out of the war zone, along with organisations such as the Red Cross and international news media, so that thereafter, no news could reach out anymore, and after that cluster bombs and phosphoric bombs were dropped over the Tamil people. The use of Cluster bombs, phosphoric bombs and Chemical bombs had been specifically banned internationally. Thousands of Tamil people were massacred by the use of such bombs.
Furthermore, after declaring a so called ‘safe zone ‘ for those people who were running for life as refugees, and getting them to assemble them in schools, hospitals and temples, they attacked the very same venues and buildings with motors and rocket fire and bombs and massacred all those civilians. People were murdered in thousands, including pregnant women and old people as well. On top of that many had lost their limbs and until now they are living as lame persons.
