    In his first comments after losing power in early January, Sri Lanka’s former president, Mahinda Rajapaksa, has pinned the blame on India’s external intelligence agency, Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), for the situation in his country as well as in Pakistan. Rajapaksa was speaking to a journalist from the Pakistani daily, Dawn.

    When the reporter told him that many Sri Lankans had mentioned how Pakistan helped in quelling the Tamil insurgency, and asked how this was the case, Rajapaksa said, “See the US, Europe, the west, they are not our friends. Pakistan helped us, especially Musharraf. What happened in my country and the insurgency in your country, RAW is behind it.”

    Rajapaksa’s charge comes in the wake of a Reuters report in mid January, which said that a RAW official had been asked by the then Rajapaksa government to leave the country before the polls. This was in response to the perception of the old government that RAW had helped cobble up the opposition alliance, which eventually ousted Rajapaksa. The Ministry of External Affairs had rubbished the report, and said no movement of diplomatic personnel had taken place from the Indian embassy in Colombo before their scheduled tenure was over.

    MEA did not respond to Rajapaksa’s charge immediately. But a serving intelligence official, speaking to HT, said, “Did we spawn terror in Pakistan? Did we alienate Tamils and Muslims and the Sinhalese opposition? It is easy to blame external actors when you are responsible for the internal mess.” He called it ‘cheap nationalist stunts’.

    Maybe RAW should make a white coloured chilli powder paste and smear it on his toilet paper (assuming he uses toilet paper).

    True or false...
    So basically he is confirming that our guys are doing their job well.

    This guy is helping us raising RAW's credibility, maybe we should consider this as a appraisal with good ratings for RAW :)

    india knew pakis were helping sri lankans - did rajapakse ever think why india did not stop it.

    india could have also made it difficult especially diplomatically when sri lanka was progressing towards (more) peace. the sri lankas have (more) peace because india supported them. i do agree that india positions have not be clear and simple but we did not cause a raped up Afghanistan.

    I wish Rajapakse is not having perturbed thinking that india planned and made him lose the elections and be replaced by someone that is more cordial to india. we opened up to him and he was respected (even if it made it easier to get him out).

    but this is something that the pakis are all good at saying and putting in the ear of someone -

    the over smart willy (hindu) indians.

    and that is the only reason the pakis helped in the first place and got to help was because it would harm india. one must give the credit to pakis to sensing the opportunity. but its whole machinery is designed on one single purpose (against india) and if one looks at it from that view point it is not that valuable foot print to have. it would be something else if they helped for some other reason. it would be something else (not being anti-india) that pakis need to start thinking and showing to the world but they cannot because their existence because of such. perhaps the sri lankans can assist the pakis in return for its internal problems because PRC is not doing it.

    i dont think it would be a message the sri lankans would like to promote too much that they have peace (and militarily) because of the pakis [what did they lack exactly] and they became anti-indian. the PRC are also there and now they will be in the spot light. sri lanks can be convinced verbally to delist the pakis from their game plan but the PRC angle will need more work. when pakis discover that sri lanka and india have more common and similar synergy the pakis wont take a second to go against sri lanka. the muslim population of sri lanka is significant. and where do their allegiance lie - , pro-sri lanka, pro-paki, anti-india, anti-prc.

    perhaps it is a time those synergy come together and a good first step would be india and sri lanka came together on some matters like maldives. it would be a good time to start cooking ... because it is raw
