Every time one of our ruling politicians opens his big mouth making sanctimonious utterances condemning unlawful acts by members of the UPFA and threatening to take action against them, we have an urge, to hurl something at him, hard. They take the public to be fools while all the time helping party or alliance members, supporters and underworld characters associated with criminal acts such as rape, robbery, assault, and murder to escape without necessary police action taken against them. Some months ago it was reported that Maithripala Sirisena, Minister of Health and General Secretary of the SLFP told the IGP to investigate all members of the SLFP and file action against the ones involved in corruption.  It is common knowledge that whoever holds the post of IGP today begins with his wings clipped, and is not expected to take action against ruling and those having close links to them.

 Just the other day, the Minister for Petroleum and General Secretary of the UPFA, Susil  Premajayantha, perhaps realizing that politicians have exhausted the strategy of condemning the wrongs of their own tribe, has given a new twist to it, of dragging in innocent animals and sacrificing them at the altar of political chicanery. The minister has made a curious utterance, reported in the Daily Mirror of July, 07, 12, that child rapists are like stray dogs.  

The Minister seems to have got his wires crossed. Dogs whether stray or owned show no sexual interest in puppies and very young animals, until they have reached physical maturity, which varies with different breeds of dogs and their environment. After females have reached physical maturity it is quite normal and natural for males to mate with them.   Animals do not have a code of moral conduct as humans do with regard to sexual behaviour and it is quite in order for animals to mate with siblings and even father and mother dogs.  It is foolish for people to impose our codes of moral conduct on animals and condemn them as incestuous or licentious. We must educate ourselves on the biological and behaviour patterns of other species instead of foolishly applying human moral codes on to them.

  In truth, with regard to child rape, what should be said is that dogs - stray or otherwise, do not behave in such a vile and dastardly way as humans who rape children, not sparing even infants.  Mr. Minister, get your thinking straight and don’t mislead the public.

What you must worry about are stray politicians, not stray dogs;  the stray politicians who do not have education, decent family back ground , and a genuine interest in serving the people, but have strayed into politics through connections to top politicians, their families  and connections with the underworld.
