the 19th Session of the United Nations Human Rights Council scheduled to begin on 27th February and continue until 23rd March 2012.This pronouncement has raised an important and pertinent issue to the entire world. Whilst protecting the rights of the individual and collective human rights of national bodies and world citizens, the rights of members of the world body representing the world citizens too should be respected and protected. This obviously is a legitimate request as every member is entitled to be treated equally, impartially and with respect. The member nations represent different parts of the world with different ideologies and constitutions. It is worrying that some nations have to request for equal treatment for which they are entitled to morally and based on the spirit of the Charter drafted as a result of the aftermath of the bloodshed in 1945 for a better world during the World War. It is thereafter that the entire world got together to reactivate the world body for the benefit of the mankind and a peaceful world to come. Sri Lanka emerged victorious Sri Lanka is a nation that bled for 30 years due to terror groups and emerged victorious after a long struggle. The winning of the war in Sri Lanka is a miracle because the world thought it was an unwinnable war. The victory was based on sheer commitment, dedication and strategy of the leader of the nation and the groups surrounded with determination to see an end to the terror regime which has threatened the peace in the region and the world over as the terror group was becoming stronger and stronger as described by international bodies as the most ruthless and feared terrorist organization ever. Sri Lanka is no stranger to offer equality to all citizens and the foreigners. When Arabs voyaged to Sri Lanka through the Silk Route thousands of years ago, the Kings embraced the visitors and provided them with lands and facilities including construction of mosques. Today they are a strong partner of our culture and economy. The majority of ethnic groups in Colombo, the capital of Sri Lanka are Muslims and Tamils. Sinhalese - the majority race is in the third place in the capital. This indicates the impartiality and tolerance of the Sri Lankan society. There will be absolute freedom for religion and equality for all three languages due to Sinhala, Tamil and English being established as official languages in the country. The education and health is absolutely free for the citizens which is an extremely rare occurrence in this complex and competitive world. Do not throw stones from glass houses Those who are blaming and aiming to tarnish the image of Sri Lanka should go before a mirror to ascertain their records in the past in the field of human rights. Sri Lanka never invaded other nations nor hunted local inhabitants for lands. She has adhered to the aspirations of the United Nations and the great concepts on which it is set up. It is heartening to note that Sri Lanka is not alone or isolated. Sri Lanka has a great history running back to thousands of years amidst peace and loving kindness. Ambassador Tamara’s request echoes thousands of words. It indicates magnanimity, friendship and loving kindness, duties and aspirations of the world family whether big or small. It is the duty of the powerful nations to look after the small and the world community at large. An ideal opportunity has emerged for Sri Lankans and friends of Sri Lankans to communicate with the countries who are members of the Human Rights Council to present the pleasant case of Sri Lanka aiming to be the Wonder of Asia full of happiness, joy and loving kindness to the world.
