Sign the Petition


Free sovereign independent Sri Lanka does not need anyone to set timetables for its peace process nor external bodies to monitor it.

let none forget that burning question; “where is the solution to terrorism?” for which Reuters responded with a two word answer : “SRI LANKA”

While the world is wallowing in the mire of terror, from Syria to Shimla, Sri Lanka is now at peace.

Healing has already begun as a natural phenomenon amongst people at social interaction level, because form time immemorial the diverse communities HAVE lived in trust, friendship and in harmony never needing any facilitation from the outside world.

We the people of Sri Lanka whose very cultural precepts advocate good will towards one another, implore the International Community to restrain from pressurizing us by resolutions because our timetable is in conflict with the international community’s timetable.

Is it seriously a good enough reason, after 30 years of indiscriminate killing, to impose these forms of timelines and sanctions upon a country just making an erudite reconciliation between its people who are still hurt and wounded by the repercussions of war?

Now in Sri Lanka, reconciliation and healing, is akin to a newly cultivated field, the seeds have been sown, the plants are growing, they need to be nurtured and nourished with understanding from within communities, from the government, its agencies, the temples, churches, mosques and kovils. In fact from every place where the human mind can be trajected to understand and accommodate, and above all from the International Community. The wounds cannot be erased overnight. We need the international communities help, not scrutiny.

Sri Lanka is now calm and quiet.

Her multi-cultural, multi-lingual, multi-ethnic and multi-religious communities comprising Sinhalese, Tamils, Muslims, Malays, Burghers and Chetties are all living together needing good will to build a lasting peace against all odds.

With awareness that not a single life has been lost due to the ethnic conflict since Mid 2009; we ought to enjoy the accolades of the international community, not its pointedly critical finger and imposition of a timetable for devolution but rather a journey for true and fruitful unity for all Sri Lankans.

Dear Sri Lankans and friends of Sri Lanka, we value your support, so please add your voice by signing this petitionary appeal to achieve sustainable peace based on Sri Lanka’s aspirations and its own processes.
