Banning Tamil Diaspora Orgs Is A Proof Of Rajapaksa Bankruptcy: GTF

“This action now proves that President Mahinda Rajapaksa is bankrupt of political will to even attempt to resolve the root causes of the Tamil National Question. As the UN Human Rights Commissioner acknowledged after her visit to Colombo in August 2013 and in her recent report, Mahinda Rajapaksa’s authoritarian tendency is now giving rise for him to think that he can suppress freedom of speech even overseas.” Suren Surendiran, the spokesperson of the Global Tamil Forum (GTF) told Colombo Telegraph.

When asked his opinion on Sri Lankan government’s attempt to ban Tamil diaspora organisations categorising them “as foreign terrorist entities” Surendiran said; “GTF as an organisation has clearly articulated to the world and the people of Sri Lanka that we actively promote non-violence and we seek a negotiated political settlement for the Tamil National Question”

Military spokesman Brigadier Ruwan Wanigasekera yesterday said that the government of Sri Lanka is in a process to proscribe certain Tamil diaspora organisations.

The GTF spokesperson said; “By creating fear and by allowing ‘terror’ through white van abductions, killings and by targeting local media organisations and personnel he has successfully suppressed freedom of speech internally in the island. Now by proscribing organisations in Sri Lanka, Mahinda Rajapaksa is trying to intimidate members of international organisations like the Global Tamil Forum to give into his ‘terror’ tactics. Its a proven fact through the percentage votes his party gained in the recently held elections that his popularity internally too is weakening. UNHRC has given the authority to the Office of the UN HR Commissioner to initiate an international investigation into alleged breaches of international law in Sri Lanka. Fear has set in due to these combined reasons, is the only conclusion that can be drawn for his idea of proscription of organisations that function overseas. This is a typical reaction of dictators.

“We as an organisation will deploy all legal and political instruments that are at our disposal to send a clear message to the regime that none of these ‘terror’ tactics will work with us as we live in a free society where we cherish freedom of speech and democracy and democracy not as defined as in Sri Lanka but practicing democracy. Rajapaksa regime thinks that having elections by itself is democracy.

“This is yet another reason why the current human rights violations, crimes against humanity and abuses must be monitored and investigated by an international body like the UNHRC. International community must react decisively to let the Rajapaksa Regime know in no uncertain terms that there will be serious consequences for his actions or the lack of it.”

    My personal opinion is that the govt threw the baby with the bath water.
    The most valuable asset any country or community has is its people. First by depriving the Tamil community of its right it only marginalized them and the country lost a good portion of their potential. This does not mean to say the govt should not take action to protect itself and the country but it cannot paint a whole community with the same brush. It will not work for any community whether race or religion it only polarizes and defeats the purpose.

    Now the govt has done the same with international organizations which it calls terrorists but the intelligence community in these foreign lands have a good grasp of these entities and if they were terrorist organizations it would have been closed by now. This action prevents these individuals and groups helping their brothers and sisters in need and at least part or individuals become easy picking for actual terrorists.

    When will this govt get its act together? This is only a knee jerk reaction for the loss at UNHRC and the loss at home (Not according to GL).

      The USA banned hundreds of terrorist organizations.

      What is wrong with Sri Lanka banning a few terrorist organizations. After all, they have the LTTE pedigree of Terrorism.

      By the way what does GTF stand for? GTTF Stand for?

        USA state did not kill its own citizens. Sri Lanka state killed its own citizens. In US, there is democracy and freedom of speech for its own people. In Sri Lanka there is no freedom even to Chief Justice. It killed hundreds of journalists.

          ‘USA state did not kill its own citizens’

          Don’t you know how the Blacks suffered in the US? How the American Indians suffered? How some continue to suffer? What the US did to the Vietnamese? Have you ever heard of Guantanamo Bay? You would compare the US to Sri Lanka?

              This transition from black slavery to black president was easy because unlike the Tamils the Blacks did not resort to violence to achieve their goals. Tamils should learn something from the Blacks for God’s sake!

                Eusense,

                What did President Rajapakse did to Tamil community four years after winning the war. What he was doing with the LLRC report for four years other than sitting on it.

                He was celebrating war win by feeding people with Kiribath, while making Mega Millions with Illegal contracts.

                Hope you remember Kapati Andarae’s story. No difference here.

                Remember you can’t fool all the people all the time.

                Both UNHRC resolutions and the PC elections sent him a strong message. He crossed red line.

                Wait to see more drama in coming weeks.

                  This Eusense is clearly a nuisance.
                  He would not respond to your question. I wonder whether these guys are trained by Gotabaya. Eusense asked me to vote against MR regime if I dont respect them, in the same time saying that he would never support Rajapakshe and their corruption and stay in mute mode if we raise him any question. That is his nature, though so called gradute product by alma mater -Pera.

                    please stop – divisions heaven´s sake. You re trying to make new problems. We are all aware that tamil problems arose lack and ignorance of our leaders. This is common everywhere,USA to other places where such divisions are there.So why to continue the very same arguments we are sinhalese, they are tamil, others are muslims.. remaining are burghers… cant you see it beyond as your masters are made ? Instead of making efforts leave peaceful inputs thinking twice before adding your two cents worth would surely help more to see it further.
                    This is the very reason why others feel that you do support Raja rule.

                  we don tneed to go back to 2009, but since last September, after the NPC election, apart from that a potential candiate was appointed to the position, what else has he achieved in terms of peace initiative.
                  Earlier, govts were not even able to get them to discussion tables, but today, even if everything looks favourable for go ahead, nothing seems to have achieved rather than physical constructions like Road and building and their levish openings to name them after his name right ? Had not the country fought a war, any leader elected could work for infrastructure projects – is a fact: but these men to live on that telling something palatable to the very same folks again and again is gone beyond all bearing now.

                Ajithlingam,
                The progress of the African American from slave to president is due to intelligent leadership of African Americans – Martin Luther, Harry Belafonte, Rev. Abernathy, Rev. Jackson. They pursued intelligent, non violent methods and operated within the law. The Tamils in Sri Lanka have pursued thuggery, murder, theft and lies as their methods and got nowhere. The ‘achievement’of Tamil leadership is the humiliating defeat of May 2009. Time to celebrate the 5th anniversary will come soon! Cheers!

                Are we all that against MR regime, are JVPrs or any other groups that in the past killed thousands of youth in the country (specially in late 80ties ).
                I believe, you are becoming meeharaka (sorry, meeharaka is the symbol of Rajapakshe rule)- and you could be even one appointed by Raja to counter being on this kind of forums.

Give a list of names and all details of these Tamils who are missing or killed by the GOSL. If you don’t do that you need to stop bringing up these false accusations. These are the reasons why the GOSL banned Tamil organizations and people like you entering Sri Lanka.

          yes US used this weapon first and could have been worked well because they have all the power to apply sanctions embargoes this and that and there are lot of others to support it. But Sri Lanka does not have any of that. What can it does? Prosecute Island Tamil who has some contacts with these diaspora group and put them to jail.

      Well. well, you are describing the Monk Mahanama Script.

      The Sinhala Monk Mahanama “Buddhist{ follow the Monk Mahanama Script.

      In the 5th Century, there were only Tamils and Hindus. No UN HRC and others.

      Please read the Mahawansa by Monk Mahanama.

      http://mahavamsa.org/mahavamsa/original-version/

      Introduction to George Turnour’s edition of the Mahavansa
      In the year 1826 an Englishman, the Hon. George Turnour (1799–1843), sat in his office in the Kachcheri buildings at Ratnapura in the Saffragam Province of Ceylon. Those were the days of Empire, full-blooded and confident. The Colonial Service, in particular, was attracting men of culture and high feeling, for whom the betterment of mankind in general, and not personal prosperity, was the principal objective.

      George Turnour was one of these men, and history has shown him scant recognition, for his contribution to a fuller knowledge of the past must be considered unique.

Sadly, in the situation we now find ourselves in, MR and the GOSL have indeed responded impetuously and completely in character. Trust and respect have evaporated and inevitable both the baby and the bath water were destined for the cesspit that passes for our communal relations. Given the potential consequences, this is indeed a sad day for our relationship with the Tamil Diaspora.

    Sri Lanka suffered for 30years under Tamil terrorism. The suffering pervaded all of the society, Sinhala, Muslim and most of all by the Tamils from their own ‘kith and kin’. This has now come to an end, thanks to the brave Sri Lankan security forces which were well led during the last two or so years. Now there are no terror attacks bar the one that was carried out by a known returned terrorist who is on the run.

    We have yet to defeat the terrorist rump abroad. They, who funded and carried out the propaganda are responsible in equal measure to the men, women and children who carried the guns. Belatedly the government has taken action against them, and they are now crying foul. Anyone associated with the rump LTTE, should not be allowed to set foot in our sacred land and Sri Lanka must remain extremely vigilant.

      Ram:

      Look at the history on how this so-called Tamil terrorism emerged. What propelled the Tamils to take up arms against a regime that, as we discuss now, believes that the majority Sinhalese can, at will, stampede the rights of the minorities. Rapes, murders and thuggerish behaviour towards those dissenting through passive resistance all drove the Tamils to take up arms. The regime thinks it can continue with its recalcitrant ways as the pressure piles up against it internationally. This is but an act of desperation, symptomatic of actions of despots and dictators. The passage of the UNHRC resolution and what it entails leaves no doubt whatsoever that the regime needs to be whipped to be brought into shape.

        Jansee,
        The greatest mistake the Tamils did was taking up arms! Sad to say, if they didn’t Tamils would have been thriving financially and taken over Sri Lanka by now. You are an intelligent guy and you would know there are minorities in every country who face all kinds of discrimination and Sri lanka can’t be an exception.
        You say “Sinhalese can, at will, stampede the rights of the minorities”. Can you spell out the specifics of rights the Sinhalese have but not the Tamils?

          Eusense,

          You are wrong. It is the Sinhala Buddhist Hegemony, that created all the troubles ever since we got Independence.

          It started with Somarama and continues todate.

          Sinhala Buddhist Hegemony is the survival strategy of the Sinhala Buddhist politicians.

          They play politics with Minority races and religions as their survival strategy and Rajapakses climaxed it.

          It is the burning of Jaffna library that escalated Tamil racial conflict.

          Before that it was JVP, now a Sinhala liberation organization.

          Where is a Tamil liberation organization. I mean not with arms, but through democratic means.

          BBS Gnanasara could be the next Somarama.

          Await for more Parippu in near future.

      Ram your arse,
      the real reason why the government banned these Organisations is because Mahinda Jarapassa begged money from these foreign Tamil Organisations and they refused. Shameless Jarapassa the Sinhalame [Edited out] is well known for begging from the whole world. You [Edited out] Sinhalame Army is well known for molesting dead bodies and children. Even a Sinhalame bugger managed to rape a woman on a good will

      Sinhalese dominated Sri Lankan state has been committing genocide of Tamils for 65 years and it continues.

      Ram: “””Sri Lanka suffered for 30years under Tamil terrorism.””” nice try sunny boy! A rather selective version of our post-independence history, conveniently forgetting the 35 years from 1948 that our Sinhala goons, under the aegis of the rabid Sinhala politicians of the time, harassed our Tamil brethren, culminating in the mother of all pogroms in July 1983. The government of the times turned a blind eye to the chaos and, even, instead of keeping law and order, allowed the rabid LTTE to grow and flourish in the north. Ram me old mucker, you need to fess up on your take. MR and his regime no doubt did well to defeat the odious Tigers but since then they have stumbled from pillar to post, proving that old adage that winning a war is one thing, winning the peace is an altogether bigger challenge – and one that MR and his regime have so far shown no flair for. Sadly, this latest episode has shown up the present GoSL scatter gun approach to problem solving.

    “This has now come to an end, thanks to the brave Sri Lankan security forces which were well led during the last two or so years.”

    If they were well led, how is the IC accusing of war crimes and crimes against humanity? A simple accusation could be ignored but when the accusation stands-up at the UNHRC its pretty serious.

    Massacre of so many civilians could be sacred land to the state. Is that why no one other than the military was allowed for years.

    One thing the state and people like you should know: you could hide from many things but not truth. It will sooner or later show-up.

    My understanding is that nearly all Tamil diaspora belong to one or more of these organizations; am I wrong?

    If that is so, the rule that it is illegal for people in Sri Lanka to have any dealings with anyone from these organizations mean none of the Tamils in Sri Lanka can have contact with their relatives. Putting aside how stupid it sounds, I suspect Sri Lankan authorities are going to have a hell of a time explaining this to the International Community.

    I suspect that this too will be one of a long list of dumb knee-jerk reactions by the Rajapaksas that they were have to back track on before very long.

    Tamil Diaspora and the Global Tamil organizations should call for a complete boycott of Sri Lankan Sinhalese goods, warn travelers including foreigners to boycott travel to Sri Lanka, expose the cold blooded murder and rape of foreign tourists in the Sinhalese areas, murder of British citizen in the custody, lack of rule of law and Tamils should boycott the businesses that deals with Sri Lankan goods and services as well. Tamils should firm with the UN, Western leaders, International community to reduce or severe diplomatic relations with the rogue regime in Sri Lanka.

        BTF was instrumental for David Cameron to visit Jaffna and this time couple of Tamils are going to be MPs in European Parliament and also in Canada.

Sinhala regime’s hardline is welcome as it is immensely justifying the Tamils demand for Eelam and helping the Tamils to achieve it!

    Suren Surendiran must realize that, that the real target of this proscription is NOT the overseas groups but the TNA. It will be harder, not impossible, for the TNA to receive funding from these groups. Also if a dossier is provided positively linking someone like Vinayagam or Nediyavan as being a former leaders of the LTTE, then their position in the current countries of domicile will be questionable as they will now be covered by the resolution.

    OVERSEAS PRO-LTTE OR EELAM DIASPORA WERE NO ASSET TO THE cOUNTRY.

    What the overseas diaspora does not know is the wealth of information gathered from the defeated LTTE.
    Rajapakshes may be Bankrupt but RICH in information & the Rajapakshes are yet browsing them. There appears to be no end in sight.
    CASTRO left behind gunny loads of information.
    GOSL is still accumilating them.

    Creating fear & Terror is nothing compared to the wealth of information that was captured.

                  They would if they could.

                  Ponnambalam Ramanathan showered love on Sinhalese by defending the murderers after 1915 riots against Muslims. In return upcountry hard working Tamils were ethnically cleansed by DS.

                  Banda who proposed federal constitution in 1935 brought Sinhala only language policy and made every single state employee to learn it. All communications by the state institutions to minorities were exclusively in Sinhala.

                  You couldn’t ask those stupid Sinhala/Buddhists to shower love on the minorities I am sure who in return would reciprocate your gestures.

                  Is there anyway we the fellow forum sharers could stop you from whining?

                  Whine also means:

                  1.To complain or protest in a childish fashion

                  2.To utter a plaintive, high-pitched, protracted sound, as in pain, fear, supplication, or complaint.

                  3.To produce a sustained noise of relatively high pitch

    Sri Lankan Government should have banned all these pro-LTTE organisations long time ago.

    Mahinda Rajapakse should be congratulated for doing this at least now.

    All Sri Lankan Tamil politicians based in Sri Lanka should be investigated and punished for their alignment with these organisations. TNA members like Mavai, Sumanthiran, Srithiran, Ananthi and even TNA leader Sampanthan should explain who paid for their many foreign trips to western capitals. In the case of Sumanthiran, there is even photographic evidence where he is seen visiting the NSW Labour leaders in the company of a prominent member of banned Australian Tamil Congress.

      Naga,

      Can you also find out who funded President Rajapakse along with Vasu Deva to go to Geneva UNHRC in 1989 to discredit Sri Lanka and then UNP Government.

      What did he talked there…….With whom did he talk.

      While he was talking his own brother Gota was in charge of Matale army camp where they find human skeletons now.

      If Rajapakses think who ever against their views as Terrorists, then the recent PC elections showed the rising of Southern Sinhala sentiment against Rajapakse rule.

      Now Rajapakse has to face three fronts at once. North, South and West….three against one.

    “SriLanka government today announced that never allow UNHRC panel appointed by the Navaneetham Pillay to visit SriLanka hold further investigations.
    Navi Pillay decided send expert panel towards SriLanka to hold further inquiries.

    They also requested Lankan government to grant permission towards them to visit North and Eastern parts of the island.

    Government never allows international community to announce SriLanka as war criminal.

    Expert panel will hold investigations from outside, government said.”

    I think the objective of the banning has very little to do with terrorism and a lot more to do with evidence of war crimes. Sri Lanka saw how much of information the IC had in hand and made people within the country interacting with the outside source illegal.

    This is simply putting Raja Inc. ahead of the country/

    This is the reaction of a cornered animal. Banning every diaspora organisation puts an end to any idea of a South African mediated reconciliation process.

    The next step is of course the banning of the TNA and dissolving of the NPC. This will happen in a year’s time when the OHCHR report officially confirms what everyone already knows – war crimes were committed.

    Then, when Western sanctions start hurting and the Sinhalese population start protesting, comes the final nail in the coffin of Sri Lankan democracy – banning of UNP/JVP/DP etc.

    No more double standard game for TNA terrorists, if those criminals want to live in SL then they have respect Sri Lankan constitute and aspirations of the majority of the people. If not get the hell out of SL or go to jail. All these years those criminals enjoyed all the benefits given by the GOSL and took tax payers money and in return these criminals worked over time to undermine Sri Lanla’s sovereignty by spreading utter lies around the world with the help of above terrorist groups.

    Yesterday Patali Champika Ranawaka say his telephone is tapped by the USA Embassy. How about Pres.Rajapakse, Gota and Basil’s phones, emails and fax messages.

    Rajapakses are been check mated by the West. These are their final moves.

    Rajapakses end game could happen like this. It is between the devil and the deep blue sea.

    First Scenerio:
    —————-

    1)If Rajapakse stops Navi Pillai from coming to Sri Lanka.

    2)Navi Pillai informs this to UN and CW

    3)Both Ban ki Moon and Sharma calls Rajapakse to persuade him.

    4)If Rajapakse does not obey them……Britain, USA, EU will stop Bank and Credit card Transactions with Sri Lanka.

    5)Tourism will come to a stand still. 70% Import and Export trade with west will come to a stand still.

    6)People with opposition parties will start protests.

    7)Rajapakses will introduce curfew to supress people.

    8)Pople will start rising up and this could lead to a civil war.

    9)Foreign troops will land in Sri Lanka to rescue people and arrest Rakapakses for Genocide.

    10)Rajapakses could hand over ccountry to Forces and could run to a Protected third country….like Idi Amin.

    Second Scenerio:
    —————–
    1)If Rajapakse allows Navi Pillai to come to Sri Lanka.

    2)Navi Pillai will do the war crime investigation and submit the report to UN.

    3)Both Rajapakses and the soldiers could be accused of war crimes.

    4)War crime charges will be brought against all the culprits.

    5)Forces could rise up against Rajapakses for not protecting them.

    6)Rajapakses could either be brought to face charges or could run to a third country for protection.

    The difference between the first and the second scenerios are…..the second scenerio takes longer time to prosecute and Rajapakses have more time to Govern.

    Only Rajapakses could select what suits them and to the country best.

    Your guess is good as mine. Ranil is the silent winner.
