True independence of Sri Lankans

This is to talk about a great endeavor  on its  one year celebration. True, it is late to write this post, but it is better late than never.  It was an incredible endeavour which was in action throughout one an half year's of time to save innocent civil citizens in my country from the terrorism.

Sri Lankans have been suffering from terrorism during 30 years of time where lots of valuable lives were lost and lots of properties were destroyed. By the time that Sri Lankan defence forces started this endeavour, the situation in Sri Lanka was such that bomb explosions have become an usual day to day incident and any one leaving home to work or to school are not guaranteed to return home. Everyone, specially mothers were living in a fire of fear till their loved ones return home without getting caught to a bomb explosion.

I personnally believe that the terrorism which was prevailing at that time was handled by a foreign hand putting the ethnic descrimination as a reason in the front. But such a descrimination did not exist in reality. We -Snhalese, Tamils, Muslims were living in harmony in non war zone areas without a problem (for an example: in the university we studied, there were lot of tamil friends and we shared all the resources eaqually and we studied together, went on trips together and they were also given eaqual priority in enetering the university.) There are lot of similar examples from world history (Kosovo, Korea, India and Pakistan etc) .

Fortunately, all Sri Lankans were lucky enough to get strong leaderships in politics and military in order to wipe out the terrorism which twisted the civilization in the country and  which brought misery to all the Sri Lankans for 30 years. Therefore I think we all got the true independence  when one and half year's of humanitarian operations in the north of the country were over on 18th of May 2009. We all should pay our grattitute to all the heros who gave their lives in that endeavor. Of course, killing of any kind is not a good thing at all . Everyone has the right to live. At the same time no body has the right to challenge the right of living of others. Any government who genuinely takes the responsibility of the citizens of the country, should protect the right of living of the citizens when that right is at risk.

I would like to conclude this by recalling a statement made by the President: "Hereafter no divisions among Sri Lankans based on races. The only two categories are: those who love the country and those two do not love the country". Therefore if we all think and work in the way that we all belong to the first category, no any non-seen forces will be able to divide our country by challenging the unity among Sri Lanakns.
