News: Foreign aid to country's female education
Posted Date: 16/08/2016 (Tuesday)
In today's fast growing world, most of the nations are fighting to leave a mark of their existence. While some countries like the United States and the United Kingdom have been the front runners for as long as the history books allow us to count on, other countries like Germany and Japan have surprised the world by becoming some of the largest economies in spite of being nearly demolished during the Second World War. The fact of the matter remains, however, that none of these developed countries achieved the status or the right to be called "developed" overnight.

News: Reunion planned in Newfoundland for Tamil ‘boat people’
Posted Date: 11/08/2016 (Thursday)
Thirty years ago, fisherman Gus Dalton spotted the 155 Tamils in two crammed lifeboats and helped bring them to Canada. Shanmuga Paul and Baskaran Nadarajah, Tamils who came to Canada as boat people 30 years ago, are expecting memories to come flooding back Thursday when they’re reunited with the ship that helped rescue them off the south shore of Newfoundland.

News: Does Vatican disapprove of Cardinal's nod to give Buddhism 'foremost place' in Sri Lanka?
Posted Date: 10/08/2016 (Wednesday)
The Vatican appears to disapprove of Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith’s statement of July 25, that it is right to give to Buddhism the “foremost place” in the Sri Lankan constitution and that it is not right to declare Sri Lanka a secular state. The Vatican Radio’s website carries a story from Colombo dated August 4, in which a group of Sri Lankan Catholics are quoted as saying that the new Sri Lankan constitution should be a secular one and that giving a special constitutional status to Buddhism is a violation of human rights.

News: Challenging Ratnawalli’s Imperial Sinhala Position
Posted Date: 09/08/2016 (Tuesday)
In a recent article I took issue with Robert S. Perinpanayagam for his short sharp comment on one of my essays on the Elephant Pass debacle of the year 2000. Embittered Tamilness has appeared in Colombo Telegraph as well as Thuppahi. Darshanie Ratnawalli recently entered a long comment in CT in ways that seem to support my work. However, her reading confuses the concept of “nation” with “nation state,” while also providing a distilled historical interpretation that overweights the past record in ways that suggest a measure of Sinhala exclusivism that leans towards the chauvinist camp. My presentation of this set of criticisms here is intended to supersede the hurried memo I placed in CT in opposition to her claims.

News: Many in diaspora approve Liberal push for reconciliation in scarred Sri Lanka
Posted Date: 07/08/2016 (Sunday)
The message of tolerance at the heart of the Trudeau government's international outlook is now being put to the test in one the world's most ethnically scarred postwar countries -- Sri Lanka. The ultimate success of Canada's re-engagement with Sri Lanka, which was formalized last month when Foreign Affairs Minister Stephane Dion visited the south Asian country, will have domestic political implications for the Liberals government in the years ahead.

Posted Date: 07/08/2016 (Sunday)

News: Sri Lanka’s missing people Refusing to give up hope
Posted Date: 05/08/2016 (Friday)
SEVEN years ago, at a busy crossroads in Colombo, Sri Lanka’s largest city, armed men in an unmarked white van abducted Stephen Sundararaj. He was going home, his three children snuggled up against him, after idling for weeks in a police cell. Mr Sundararaj, then a 39-year-old project manager at a local human-rights group, had been detained under the Prevention of Terrorism Act, a draconian law permitting arrests without warrant for “unlawful activities”. He challenged the move in court and would have pursued the case, had he not been hauled away mere hours after his release. He was never charged with a crime. He has never been found.

News: Impunity for killing of 27 inmates of the Welikada Prison, Colombo in November 2012
Posted Date: 05/08/2016 (Friday)
In November 2012, 27 inmates at the Welikada Prison, in Colombo, Sri Lanka, were reported as killed by the Army and the Special Task Force (STF) following what was reported as a search operation leading to a riot. 43 persons have also been reported as injured. Based on testimony of eyewitnesses, the Commissioner General of Prisons was seen inside the prison in the morning of 10th November (after midnight on 9th November) and thus, it is believed that he is aware of names of the Army officers present inside the prison during the massacre.

News: Dion’s Sri Lanka visit: Step in right direction, but more must be done Making a substantial contribution to post-conflict reconciliation in Sri Lanka would go a long way to show Canada’s engaged approach to global affairs.
Posted Date: 03/08/2016 (Wednesday)
Foreign Affairs Minister Stéphane Dion’s visit to Sri Lanka last week was a welcome symbol of the important steps that Canada is taking to help support reconciliation efforts in the island nation. Although Sri Lanka’s devastating civil war ended in 2009, post-conflict rebuilding efforts remain unfinished and a lasting and permanent peace has yet to be achieved. It is therefore vital that Canada remains focused on Sri Lanka in the months and years ahead. As the home of one of the largest Tamil diasporas outside of South Asia, Canada is in a unique position to help advocate for the improvement of Sri Lanka’s human rights situation, promote political accountability, and make a lasting contribution to peace and development in the island nation.

News: Concerns of another UNHRC resolution endorser
Posted Date: 02/08/2016 (Tuesday)
It was a few days after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau released a statement expressing his country's solidarity with the Tamils of Sri Lankan origin who were commemorating an event in Toronto, Canada to mark the 33rd anniversary of 1983 Black July, Canadian Foreign Minister Stephane Dion arrived in the island on Thursday (28) and his Sri Lankan visit is considered as a first visit of a Canadian Foreign Minister to Sri Lanka since 2003.
