Late Prof Allama M M Uwise ushered new literary culture

The late Professor Allama M M Uwise was a catalyst among the Muslim-Sinhala communities in creating a new literary culture in the promotion of a close relationship between both communities. He was also the doyen in the field of Tamil literature, said A H M Azwer, MP addressing the 16th memorial meeting of Dr M M Uwise at Colombo Tamil Sangam, Wellawatte, on Sunday.

Making the keynote address on the late Professor, Azwer said Dr Uwise was a great emissary of peace and had he lived today, he would have been the happiest person regarding the historical role played by President Mahinda Rajapaksa in eradicating terrorism and consolidating peace despite unpatriotic elements conspiring to harm the motherland.

The US sponsored United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) resolution calling for a time bound implementation of the recommendations of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission, LLRC, was passed with 24 members in favour and 15 against which means more than half the member states were against the empire meddling in yet another non-White country.

America, the most powerful nation in known history, managed to muster only a simple majority vote despite all its political, economic, and military might.   This reflects rather negatively America’s standing in the world.  As expected Muslim countries like Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia Bangladesh, Maldives and Indonesia backed Sri Lanka to the hilt even after it became clear India was going to stab Sri Lanka in the back. The first three countries, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar are known American stooges. And so the fact that even they defied the   US in this instance puts America in a more embarrassing position suggesting that the mighty America empire might be losing its grip on even on its supposed ‘stooges’ and consequently on world affairs.
