17NOV2019: Rajapaksa

Lieutenant Colonel 'The Terminator' Nandasena Gotabaya Rajapaksa won the elections and Muslims in Sri Lanka are worried because of his past "war on Terror" along with Tamil Tigers.

www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-50389014

The only silver lining I see that Colonel Rajapaksa is from the cadre of Sri Lankan soldiers who trained and graduated from Pakistan Army schools, I believe he attended the "Signals" School.

Pakistan defense exports will cross $1 Billion (Insha'Allah) within the next year. Sri Lankan Army has a track record of working with and training under Pakistan Army and primarily will be buying significant weaponry from Pakistan.

Lets monitor the situation for the next few months and see what happens in Sri Lanka. If Colonel Rajapaksa leans on Pakistan and Imran Khan and his Government fails to protect the Human Rights of Sri Lankan Muslims it will be a horrible disappointment.

There is chance that India might make amends and build bridges with Colonel Rajapaksa so lets monitor the situation.

Lets watch his first moves in power.

The International Crisis Group (ICG) said the prospect of a Gotabaya Rajapaksa win had created "fear of a return to [a] violent past".

"The prospect of a new Rajapaksa presidency has heightened ethnic tensions and raised fears among minorities and democratic activists," wrote ICG Sri Lanka director Alan Keenan.

"They worry electing Gotabaya, a strong Sinhala nationalist, would deepen already serious divides among the country's ethnic communities and threaten its recent modest democratic gains."
