'Electoral victories of Mahinda government justify partition'

[TamilNet, Sunday, 15 February 2009, 12:32 GMT]
The frame of mind of Sinhala majority in the island of Sri Lanka reflects unequivocally in the impressive electoral victories secured by Mahinda Rajapasa’s government in the elections for the provincial councils of Central and North-West Provinces. The electoral victories endorse the ongoing brutal war, aiming total subjugation of Tamils. In the process, the Sinhala majority virtually concedes the need for partition in the island, if any polity acceptable to human civilization should prevail there, said an expatriate Sinhala academic commenting on the reports of 'record victory' for Rajapaksa's ruling UPFA in the provincial elections.

‘Totalitarianism of ethnic majority’ is the political philosophy overwhelmingly endorsed by the Sinhalese, said the expatriate academic who didn't wish to be named.

"Envisaging a political solution from this majority or expecting the setting-in of a pluralistic polity of liberal democracy in the island is running after a mirage," he said.

"Any eventual peace process for political solution within a united Sri Lanka would certainly be thwarted by the same frame of mind of the Sinhalese, for whom solution means total subjugation."

The transformation in the island from totalitarianism to liberal democracy is possible only through partition, benefiting both the Sinhalese and Tamils. But the jolt needs to come, he said.
