SL Navy behind causing temple controversy at Kooniththeevu

[TamilNet, Saturday, 06 January 2018, 23:06 GMT]
Without having established anything scientifically and without even officially declaring anything through a Gazette notification, the SL Archaeology Department, which relies upon manipulations, extremist views, occupying Sinhala military and the ‘Buddhism foremost’ clauses of the unitary constitution, managed to build a false paradigm of an imaginative ‘stupa’ as having existed at the hill-top of Maththa'la-malai at the locality of Choodaik-kudaa in Kooniththeevu GS division of Moothoor East, Trincomalee. Basicially, the entire falsehood has been based on the utterances coming from the chief monk of Seruwila Mangala Raja Maha Viharaya, Munhene Mettarama thero. The Seruwila monk is someone who has been closely working with the occupying Sinhala Navy in Champoor, a well-informed source in Trincomalee told TamilNet on Saturday.

One should also note that all the controversial capture of lands and properties of Tamils under various pretexts are taking place while the US Pacific Command is directly involved in upgrading the occupying navy of genocidal Sri Lanka with a marine force through its training sessions in Trincomalee and the SLNS Vidura establishment, the main training base of the SL Navy, is situated in Champoor, near the disputed hill-top.

The US Pacific Fleet and SL Navy have been jointly training in Trincomalee in recent times.

At the same time, the Sinhala Navy has been destroying the houses of uprooted Eezham Tamils in Champoor, Trincomalee, since October 2017 to obtain concrete material to fortify its newly built administrative headquarters for the training of the ‘Marine Battalion’.

The SL Navy has also been putting up a chain of coastal points since October, claiming to beef up the security of the 4-story building, which is situated within the premises of ‘SLNS Vidura’ naval base at Champoor. The training base has been completely reconstructed following the Yahapalanaya regime change.

The expansion of the temple of the village deity of Tamils at Maththa'la-malai was seen as a hurdle for the latest plans of seizing more lands for SL Navy's Vidura base. It is under these circumstances, the SL Navy seems to have approached the monk at Seruwila.

A Buddhist stupa constructed on the hill-top of Maththa'la-malai would be visible from the Trincomalee harbour, the SL Navy has briefed the monk in December 2017.

The occupying SL Navy was fully aware that the Tamil people were engaged in expanding the temple on the top of the hill-top while it approached the monk in Seruwila.

Following all the controversies that have been reported so far, it was only on Saturday the SL Archaeology Department managed to dispatch some of its field workers to analyse the locality.

The SL Archaeology Department has to now somehow document that there was a girth of the Cetiya as having existed at Maththa'la-malai in the ancient past. Otherwise, it would more likely to incur the ire of the Theravada Buddhist establishment, the civil source further said.

In the meantime, the extremist monk from Seruwila has gone on record claiming that there was a 15 feet stupa at the locality that belonged to Anuradhapura period.

The Colombo-centric Sinhala news media was also giving a ‘mythical touch’ to the news stories by claiming that a Sinhala driver and owner of the bulldozer, which was hired by the Tamil temple management of the Murukan deity at Maththa'la-malai to slope the ground for the expansion of the temple, had met with accidents at two different places on the same day.

Now, in the eyes of Sinhala Buddhists, Champoor has suddenly become a place where Buddha's relic was once preserved in the past.

A Wikipedia entry has also been created with the claims of ‘Sampur Stupa’ to be hooked up with the stories from the Sinhala press in creating a new myth for seizing the lands of Tamils.
