ROLE OF WESTERN INDOLOGUST AND CHRISTIAN MISSIONARIES IN CIVIL RIOTS OF SRI LANKAN TAMILS AND SINHALES.
SINHALES BUDDHIST IDENTITY
America based Theosophical society used India based Dravid institution for reawakening of Buddhism’s in Sri-Lanka. The main purpose of this society was reducing the influence of Christianity in Sri Lanka. Sri Lankan Sinhalese started to see themselves as people who brought culture and Religion in this land which automatically marked Tamils as inferior cast.
TAMIL BRAINWASH BY USING DRAVID IDENTITY
In between of this intellectuals discover an mythical land name Lumuriya which was later famous in Tamil Nadu also. This land and culture later merged with Sangam Literature which gives backbone to Tamil identity as Dravidian. This Dravidian identity later famous amongst Sri Lankan Tamils. Tamils accepted this identity in revenge against Sinhales nationalism.
FIGHT FOR IDENTITY
This identical clash which is Febricated by west for Sinhales and Tamils later become a dangerous CIVIL WAR which took almost 100000 lives of both side.
NOW, I WILL DISCUSS THE ABOVE MENTION EVENT IN DETAILS.
USE OF GEOGRAPHY FOR RASING AN MYTHICAL LAND BY WESTEN INDOLOGIST
Robert Caldwell stared to Febricated a Ultra national and positive theory which was closed to Tamils Sangam Literature and culture. Caldwell portrayed Tamils as victim which was under utter need to reforms. He also include an mythical land which was created by British Zoologist Philip Lutley Sclater, 1829-1913.
According to his theory, Indian Ocean was once an land Named Lumuriya which was stretch to Madagascar to Sumatran. Later it’s submerged under water due to raise of Ocean level. The Main reason behind that theory was the common species of Plants and animal in Aferican and Indian continental. In1876, Fedric Engales give that theory an Marxist turn and used it to spread in between South India and Sri Lanka.
In 1880, THEOSOPHICAL SOCIETY JOIN FOUNDER MADAM HELENA PETROVANA BLAVASTSKY 1831-1891 started to spread this idea everywhere. She claimed that this land was so prospers and have technical advantage .
In 1879 she stalled down in Chennai , India and stared to propagate theory that All race was comes from 850000 years ago. She used Indo Aryan theory to claim that Aryans were higher than any race. BLAVASTSKY was admire that first race of Aryans were European and than Lumuriyans. BLAVASTSKY was against idol worshipers and consider Hindus an infected race.
“Deep history teach us that Idols and Idols worship was ended in fourth Generation but later the naive race of Chinese, African negros are stated it again. Vedas do not acknowledge any Idol worship but all Modern Hindu scripture do”
She propagate the theory that Aryan were pure race who was initially Europeans and than they mingled with Dravidian. While on other side her society was under construction of great ethanic race by using Lumuriya for Tamils.
Charles D Macckline told that Lumuriya is Original point of Dravidian.
On other hand , Tamils intellectuals was dug into that trap. They feel proud on this theory which simply relating them to an land of Mythical Civilization and Culture.
S S PURNALINGAM PILLAI , Writer of Book “A primer of Tamil Literature, 1904 stated that
“Tamils were native citizen of Lumuriya which was continental in bw of equatorial lines of Indian ocean. It was sunk under see almost 100 millionaire ago. “
This theory from Western and European Indologist actually rifted Tamils into an mythical construction of identity which claim that they were best than other native Indians. Specially the North Indians which was Aryans .
BISHOP CALDWELL CONNECTION TO LUMURIYAN ORIGIN
Indian Tamil Christian Intellectual Devnay Panwar (1902 – 1981) actually merged the idea that Lumuriya Tamils was High class people but they have been forced as slave by Crooked Brahmins. In his book 1966 he said
“Till now, western People dnt know that Tamil was LUMURIYAN native and an ancient developed language. It has been subjugated by Sanskrit lovers and followers systematically. From that time when Vedic sage enter into land of Dravid they made fool of Dravid kings by their fair skin. They (Vedic sage) declear themselves God of the land. Tamils has been fooled by them. They false said that Sanskrit is also literature and native language”
TamilNadu govt craeted an museum for Lumuriya and there is thousand books about that subject. Hence even it’s been declear by Geographical science that there was no such merged land in Between India and Africa.
Tamil Nadu govt also declear in 2003 (Pondicherry Institute of Linguistic and Culture) that
“LUMURIYAN Tamils were 100000 to 50000 BCE old. Specer wells and his scientific team discover that first human was born in 60000 BCE years old. We falsy claim that our civilization is 2000 years Old. Alone Christen calendar can’t decide the origin of Tamil race. We shouldnt satisfied with only Indus valleys”
The above mention details clear that Tamils was deeply attached to that idea.
THEOSHOPICAL SOCIETY USED BUDDHISM FOR REDUCING CHRISTIAN EFFECT.
Same time in Sri Lanka there was another play was craeted by Westeners indologist.
In 1856, Robert Caldwell declear in his book that There is no direct contact between Sinhales and Tamil language. Another Scholar James Dislava purpose that Sinhales language is from family of Aryan language. But he also told that it wasn’t part of Sanskrit at all.
British forced in 1871 to Sri Lankan people to told cast during their annual population count which was attempt to forced race amongst Sri Lankan people.
DHARMPAAL an Buddhist Monk who was inspired by Theosophical society theories. He spent his life to propogate the idea of Aryan Buddhist connection amongst normal people. In 1886, when C W Leadbetar and Henry steel Oalcut went to Sri Lanka than DHARMPAAL was with them.
Alfred Enerst Bultzens (an Dutch covert to Buddhism) spend whole Sri Lanka by Propagating Budhdism. People started to Tool them seriously.
Bultzens started an Magazine “The Buddhist” in 1897 wrote an article “The Aryan Singhalese”. Which influence many Singhalese for a long time.
Slowly Singhalese also been constructed into the ethnic race which was different than native Tamils of Lankas.
THE CIVIL RIOTS: ARYA BUDDH SINGHALESE VS DRAVID SHIVAIST TAMILS
In fight against Christianity and Missionaries, Buddhist monk started to relive the Buddhists culture which shorty become cleansing movement. They started to diminishing the local rituals and worships which were Indigenous part of Tamil and Singhalese culture. This new born Buddhism had took national movement.
On the other side, Tamils (Sri Lanka) took Dravidian identity and propogate mythical oppression of Aryans in South India. This mythical oppression become key of civil movements against Singhalese also which Singhalese seen as Treason against nation.
This riots become Civil war for more than 30 years. In which 80,000 people killed and 9,00,000 people displaced. In 2009, that riots were at peak and 20,000 people died.
Dravid and Singhalese Ethanic creation by Westen think tank is not only example. Rawanda riots was another example of such ethnic creation. We discuss this in a next blog.
