Setting up a Homeland Security Command

One is proud of the will, courage, commitment and sacrifice of our 34th PMA Sri Lankan course-mates, they fought terrorism for over 25 years through Sri Lanka’s darkest period. My good friend Maj Gen (Lucky) Wijayaratne, who when commanding 1st Sri Lanka Light Infantry (SLI) at Panagoda “inducted” me into his battalion, was killed in action. When Prabhakaran and the remnants of his Tamil Tigers were ultimately cornered by the Sri Lankan Army in 2009, the Indian Foreign Minister demanded the offensive be stopped to allow them safe passage. Poised to eliminate the bloody scourge that had turned their island paradise into a hell with the help of India’s Research & Analytical Wing (RAW), the Sri Lankans flatly refused.

Countering the Terror Threat

Consider the theatrics of the absurd by some political clerics at the killing of the terrorist responsible for slaughtering thousands of innocent Pakistanis. Indeed pathetic that the fundamentally moderate Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) should label Tehrik-e-Taliban-i-Pakistan (TTP) Chief Hakimullah Mehsud a “Shaheed”! To safeguard their fiefdoms, politicians and clerics often turn to appeasement of militants. The Army did well by immediately reacting to what potentially can erode the morale of the rank and file. And so did PM Mian Nawaz Sharif, burying 15 years of self-created bad blood with the Army by a maiden visit to GHQ soon after the JI leader’s outrageous remarks, he rightly called the Army’s martyrs as “our benefactors”.
