Has madness any limits-?


(May 07, Colombo, Sri Lanka Guardian) An article published in Island today by pne C.A. Chandraprema under the title Prageeth Ekeneliagoda affair-1, is a clear example showing that madness has no limits and that a police informer can never cease to be mad.

This C.A.C.P. argues that Prageeth Ekneliyagoda was so insignificant that it is unthinkable that “this most powerful of post independent governments led by the most popular leader political leader that this country has seen in recent times, has fallen to the level of of considering it necessary to abduct q harmless, penniless, insignificant non-entity like Prageeth Ekneliyagoda”

What a wonderful argument!-What A genius this C.A.C. P is ! Do powerful people ever harm insignificant, penniless people. Of course ,no. Did all powerful Joseph Stalin ever harm any poor, insignificant Russian ! What non-sense to say that he killed 30 million people>!

C.A.C.P also argues that since he did not recue Prageeth Ekneliyagoda the first time, that is conclusive proff that Prageeth Ekneliyagoda was not abducted for the first time as his wife claims. To a madman every thing appears as fiction.

C.A.C.P was one time member of independent student union, whose leader was killed by JVP. ( Is that also fiction! )Then he in order to take his revenge became a police informer and helped to hunt JVPers. Many years later he was arrested for investigations for murder in company with famous SSP Douglas Peiris. He was released later and was not charged. Then he became a journalist. Now he says leftists can not be journalists. Why, because nobody reads what they write. But, people read what police informers write. Why, because it is real life stuff. Such informers write, what they really know about. They are great journalists. Not insignificant, penniless guys like Progeeth Ekneliyagoda.

Any one who is penniless can become important by becoming a police informer- That is the lesson to be learned.

Such is the great journalism of Island news paper now.
