Antiquities Ordinance used to justify Sinhalicisation of 48 locations in Mullaiththeevu

[TamilNet, Monday, 09 July 2018, 22:30 GMT]
The intruding Sinhala-Buddhist establishment and the occupying military of genocidal Sri Lanka are rushing ahead with the expansion of an already reconstructed Buddhist temple, the so-called Gurukanda Raja Maha Vihara (Gurukanda RMV), which is located at Chemmalai, Naayaa'ru in the coastal Karai-thu'raip-pattu division of Mullaiththeevu district. As the protesting Tamil land-owners successfully blocked the surveying of the lands earlier this month, the intruders are now citing an Extraordinary Gazette notification, issued in 2013 (1823/73) during the times of Rajapaksa rule, to proceed with their plans of expanding the Vihara, the civil sources at the District Secretariat said.

The 1823/73 Gazette notification, which deals with the buildings and not the lands, paves the way for greedy land-grab. There are 47 other buildings from Mullaiththeevu district alone, listed in the notification.

Citing the Gazette notification, the intruders have started the construction work claiming that the disputed agricultural land belongs to the vihara.

The property at Neeraaviyadi-eattam in Chemmalai, a coastal hamlet situated on the narrow sandbar, is sandwiched between the Naayaa'ru lagoon and the sea. A'lampil is located to the north and Kokku'laay lagoon in the south.

Génocidaire SL commander Maj Gen Jegath Dias, who played a leading role in the onslaught on Vanni with command responsibility for Divisions 53, 57, and 59, and Task Force IV, initiated the vihara project after May 2009.

The late Seruwila Saranakiththi Thera, who was the Anunayake of the Seruwila Saranakiththi Kalyani Sect and Chief Incumbent of the Mangala Raja Maha Viharaya in Seruwila at that time, was closely working with Jegath Dias. Earlier, in 2006, the SL military intelligence deployed the racist monk to manage the Maavil-aa'ru controversy towards scuttling the Ceasefire Agreement.

The incumbent monk at Gurukanda RMV has also been groomed by the occupying Sinhala military, mainly the troops of the 19 Gemunu Watch (GW), which is placed under the 593rd Brigade of the 59th Division.

Colonel Lanka Amarapala is the current Brigade Commander of the 593rd Brigade, which is advancing the plans.

Kolamba Medhalankara Thera is engaged with expanding the Gurukanda RMV.

Maj Gen Jegath Dias and the late Seruwila Saranakiththi Thera worked closely to brand the ancient remains at Naayaa'ru, possibly the traces of Mahayana Tamil Buddhist heritage, as traces of Sinhala Theravada Buddhism at Naayaa'ru.

Another extremist monk, Sri Thissapura Gunarathna Thero, located in Kokku'laay, south of Naayaa'ru is also unyielding to the demands of the Tamil authorities, the NPC and even the interim order of the SL justice system. He is putting up a Sinhala Buddhist vihara at Kokku'laay, occupying the lands of a Saiva temple and the lands belonging to a Tamil family.

The Extra-Ordinary Gazette has not specified the land borders of the buildings it was protecting. It mentions only the buildings.

The SL Gazette notification lists 99 buildings in the North and East under Section 16 of the so-called Antiquities Ordinance (Chapter 188).

The Gazette notification declares 83 buildings in the North and 16 properties in the East as ancient monuments.

Mullaiththeevu district tops the list of ancient monuments with 83 buildings. 19 buildings seized under the 2013 Gazette declaration are located in Vavuniyaa district, 9 in Jaffna and 7 in Vavuniyaa. Of the 16 buildings in the East, 15 are located in Trincomalee and 1 in Batticaloa.
