Defense secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa today said that terrorism will not be allowed to raise its head again in Sri Lanka as every precautionary measure has been taken by the security forces.

He told this during a passing out parade at the Maduru Oya Special Forces training school where 11 officers and 443 soldiers completed their training, the highest number to pass out in 25 years.

    problem is 95% of the tamils are racist. law must ban ethnic parties.

    Dulip Perera Saturday, 11 December 2010 04:06 PM

    Tamils have the freedom to embark on peaceful activities NOT sucidal terrorism!!!!

    I am not a supporter of your brother MR but certainly will walk with you 'cos you will implement what you say.

    Thas Saturday, 11 December 2010 07:32 PM

    You should know the difference between terrorism and fight for freedom. You will never be able to stop the fight for freedom. Don't you know what happened to your brother MR, in UK recently.

    madagaha Saturday, 11 December 2010 09:21 PM

    that is your duty. thats why you are defence secretery of the country and paid by the peoples tax. no need advertisements for your duty.

    Likewise, Tamils (outside Sri Lanka) will engage in campaign to punish whoever committed war crimes in Sri Lanka.

    sribala Saturday, 11 December 2010 10:32 PM

    Tamils are ready to die for Tamil Eelam!

    Ray Saturday, 11 December 2010 10:57 PM

    Well said Palitha, When are these idiots going to understand this ...???

    Ray Saturday, 11 December 2010 11:06 PM

    A VERY GOOD COMMENT. But why should the Govt. pay any attention to the minorities, untill another attack starts??? Why should we bother ???

    Ray Saturday, 11 December 2010 11:33 PM

    I fully agree with you Sir for the love of our Mother Land.
    I'm a Sinhalese living abroad.
    Why can't be more Sri Lankans Like 'US' who want all our Sri Lankans to be equal ???

    Kej Saturday, 11 December 2010 03:30 PM

    Tamils cannot. Thats the truth... their day dreams never come true... Next time tamils have to decide live or leave..

    play boy Sunday, 12 December 2010 01:12 AM

    Well said.

    Fanam Sunday, 12 December 2010 03:59 AM

    ila, if you want to do that, start with those who funded LTTE contineously to killed their own people, ruin the life of innocent youth, ruined families.

    meranchi Sunday, 12 December 2010 04:01 AM

    great,,,,, great......... great,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    siri Sunday, 12 December 2010 05:07 AM

    Tell me - what freedom does Tamils don't have that others have? I can tell you hundreds of Sinhala,muslims who slave for Tamil enterpreneurs for pittance.

    sg Sunday, 12 December 2010 05:51 AM

    While finding sustainable solution for the national question , shpuld be given high priority for the national security a swell.It is a very important subject of the soverign country.

    Ramesh Sunday, 12 December 2010 08:10 AM

    @Lankan The war criminals got killed 2009 May although another there are a few in Afganisthan and in the US army.

    pd Sunday, 12 December 2010 08:43 AM

    sorry all those who committed such acts died with prabha. only LTTE committed such acts

    Nalin Sunday, 12 December 2010 09:45 AM

    You could start with the current LTTE leadership abroad!

    dsr-neckar Sunday, 12 December 2010 11:44 AM

    All those who born in Sri Lanka, they are SRI LANKANS. There is no place for particular language or culture. Either you integrate or vanish.

    sira Monday, 13 December 2010 01:27 AM

    If Sihalees ready to fight them-self, i mean if only sinhalees fight with Tamils, Tamils may achieved Tamileelam. But Sinhalees have Indian army, Chinees army, Russion army and 24 countries military support. But LTTE have Tamils support only. Ask you army who was in the last war that how was they feel that war and identify the reality. If sinhalees not feel that Tamils also Sri lankans and they also have same rights, then the delivery of Tamileelam will not stop by any one.

    Common Man Saturday, 11 December 2010 10:29 AM

    Yes, you are right; the Sinhalese people are suffering hell of a lot in the country.

    sribala Saturday, 11 December 2010 08:09 AM

    Nobody in this modern world likes terrorism, also state terrorism. You must know one thing that Tamils struggle will continue until Tamil Eelam is realized!

    David Saturday, 11 December 2010 08:45 AM

    lol , sorry mate the result will be more terrorists continue to die till there would be know one left to fight if that is what you guys want ? go for it ....!!!!

    Fanam Saturday, 11 December 2010 08:51 AM

    There will be no tamil ealam in Sri lanka but Sri Lankan tamils who can live with dignity. I think that if you start your strugle again for a tamil ealam, then you will have to struggle for ever. Think of living in a united Sri Lanka. On the other hand, govt and hardline politicians should promote peace and avoid sidelining all minorities.

    Konde bendapu china Saturday, 11 December 2010 09:16 AM

    without thinking like tamils,sinhalese or muslims think like SRILANKANS .GR have done lots of good things Thank you

    Palitha Perera Saturday, 11 December 2010 09:35 AM

    we will never alow you to have Tamil Eelam in sri lanka, If you try it again all sri lankan tamils will die, then Tamil Eelam for whom

    Punchi Nilame Saturday, 11 December 2010 09:37 AM

    Hey Sri Bala,
    Do you think your dreams will come true? All Sri Lankan including tamil & muslims will join again to save Mother Lanka.,

    AF Saturday, 11 December 2010 09:46 AM

    Thank you for all the efforts & grate work sir. As citizens of Sri Lankan we are really grateful.

    Mohamed Saturday, 11 December 2010 09:53 AM

    If we want to see a Land without terrorism then unequality need to be aradicated and all communities need to be treated equally.

    Yehiya-Doha Saturday, 11 December 2010 10:07 AM

    Name of Terrorist all rights are axed .

    Musthafa Bawa Saturday, 11 December 2010 10:15 AM

    Mr. Gotta- we will be with u in this move

    raj Saturday, 11 December 2010 10:22 AM

    Is that a treat?????

    NADARAJAH SETHURUPAN Saturday, 11 December 2010 07:32 AM

    Tamils need you forever in srilanka. what about other Tamil militant terror groups?

    Common Man Saturday, 11 December 2010 10:32 AM

    Yes, you have one in Tamil Nadu. Second one, forget it..

    Ramesh Saturday, 11 December 2010 11:28 AM

    Please pick UK, Canada or India for that matter. Sri Lanka is such a small place to be divided, don't you think so ? How could it be possible for over 35% of tamils to live in Colombo if there are such issues ?

    Tamil extremists should realise that Peelam would never happen in Sri Lanka also the extreme Sinhalese have to stay away from stirring unnecessary confusions among other ethnic groups.

    We need to prevent terrorism and heal the wounds... we don't want to go back to pre 2009 era.

    sam Saturday, 11 December 2010 11:52 AM

    GR is a great statesman and I think he is the kind of leader that Sri Lanka needs now. A no nonsense attitude and straight forward talking GR is best suited to take over the leadership of this country. He is no politician but a professional and despite that fact his family is involved in politics at the highest, he still believes in discipline and have can do attitude. We should salute him for being like that. All the best in his future endeavours – eradicated terrorism with the esteem support of our forces including the leadership of SF which no one could decline or forgot, it’s time for GR to wipe out underworld operations, corruption, etc.

    suwantha Saturday, 11 December 2010 11:59 AM

    i kindly request you to liberate our time national hero who worked hard to eradicate the terrorism.then people will agree with you.

    wimalasir Saturday, 11 December 2010 12:13 PM

    Well said Gota, Tamils if you want to live in Sri-Lanka forget LTTE. We will not allow LTTE to come back. See what happen to your Praba, died like an animal.

    dam Saturday, 11 December 2010 01:09 PM

    Still some are dreaming of Ealam. We are sorry for you Sribala.Why don't you understand reality?.

    sunilsenerath Saturday, 11 December 2010 01:19 PM

    What about government terrorism? What do you think of adhoc arrests of student leaders and politicians?

    Lankan Saturday, 11 December 2010 03:21 PM

    Yes Mr.Rajapaksa, How are you going to eliminate war criminals? ha!!!!
