Victors must write country’s history - Ven. Medagoda Abhayatissa Thera

Ven. Prof. Medagoda Abhayatissa Thera yesterday stressed that it is the government’s responsibility to disallow the Tamil Diaspora from writing the history of Sri Lanka with definitive action once and for all.

He said so in an interview with the Daily News on the influence of the Tamil Diaspora lobbying against the Sri Lankan government. The Thera said the custom under the previous UNP-led regime was to give in to the malevolent scripts of the Tamil Diaspora that were aimed at denigrating the people of the country,

the army, the clergy and the very foundations of its culture.

“An effort should be made to dismiss the Tamil Diaspora from this role of writing Sri Lanka’s history in line with their sinister separatist political agenda,” the Thera reiterated.

The Thera said that the government must bear in mind that it went to war against one of the most ruthless terrorist organizations, LTTE and won it, and that it is the victor who must write the history of the war, not the members of the Tamil Diaspora who fanned the flames that must do so.

“The government must come up with a strong programme against disinformation campaigns launched against the country by certain organized sections of the Tamil Diaspora. They will try to push through these disinformation campaigns through anonymous reports or unproven reports.

They are promoting these campaigns with the support of various INGOs,” the Thers said.

“The government, as the victors, must not give in to the influence of the Diaspora scripts, such as those found in the Darusman report or any other report,” Ven. Prof. Medagoda Abhayatissa Thera added..
