Channel 4 Videos On Sri Lanka: Background Is Essential

By Brian Senewiratne –

Dr. Brian Senewiratne

The Channel 4 News videos on the ethnic conflict in Sri Lankaare about the most important contributions to apprise the world of what has gone on, and is still going on, behind the closed and censored doors of Sri Lanka.

There are now two documentaries, Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields released in June 2011, and Sri Lanka’s killing Fields. War Crimes Unpunished released in March 2012. They contain crucial evidence of war crimes and crimes against humanity, if not Genocide of the Tamils.

The world needs to see these, since all that comes out of Sri Lanka is what the Sri Lankan Government wants the world to believe. That is what a Totalitarian does – to shut down the Media, among other repressive measures.  It is therefore essential that these dreadful atrocities be seen by as many people as possible.

There is, however, a problem with these Channel 4 videos. There is no background information which is so important to appreciate why these atrocities occurred. If this is not provided, then these videos are nothing but yet another ‘horror movie’. What has gone on in the war waged by the Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL) on the Tamil people (not just the Tamil Tigers), is much more than a horror story.

The dozen dvds I have recorded on the plight of the Tamil people has essential information on this. I do not expect people to wade through this mass of information, but the last of these, “Sri Lanka, Genocide, Crimes against Humanity, Violation of International Law”, contains all that is needed. For those who want more information, this will be found in my “Sri Lanka. Humanitarian Crisis in the Tamil areas. An Appeal to stop the slaughter and ensure Peace with Justice” which is in two volumes, an hour each. These are too long for the ‘average’ viewer.

It is also important to get the point across to the Sinhalese that yesterday it was the Tamil people, tomorrow it will be the Sinhalese, since this is what Totalitarian regimes have done for centuries

What I have done in Brisbane,Australia, when these Channel 4 dvds are shown, is to start the meeting with a powerpoint presentation based on information in my shorter dvd. This takes about 15-20 minutes. It provides the basic information – the ethnoreligous and language set up, Sinhala populist politics to get elected to power by discriminating against the Tamils to get the votes of the Sinhala-Buddhist population (70% of the population), peaceful protests by the Tamils for years at this discrimination, and when they failed, a resort to an armed conflict, essentially a liberation struggle to free the Tamil people from Sinhala domination. These systematic and recurring pogroms against the Tamils and the ‘need’ to wipe out the Tamils, by committing Genocide of the Tamils if necessary, was ‘necessary’ to make multiethnic, multilingual, multirelgious Sri Lanka, into a Sinhala-Buddhist nation.

It is in this setting and with this agenda, that President Rajapaksa launched his murderous assault, the closing stages of which are seen in the Channel 4 videos. My dvds are not as heinous as the Channel 4 videos, but cover a much wider time-frame, and show that Rajapaksa only completed what a succession of Sinhalese leaders, at least since 1956, have wanted to do but were not barbaric enough attempt. The Rajapaksas had no such problems. If it was ‘necessary’ to murder the entire Tamil population in the North and East and/or make them ‘non-people’, they were more than happy to do so. All they needed was an Army commander with the same mind-set, and in General Sarath Fonseka, they found the man and his interview with a Canadian newspaper a couple of years ago.

I then go on to show the weapons that the GoSL unleashed on the Tamil people and the human and structural damage done. “Now that you know the background and the agenda of the Sri Lankan government, I will now show you the end stages of this massacre of Tamils in the Channel 4 video – Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields – obtained from  Sinhalese soldiers who recorded these on their mobile phones as grisly ‘war trophies’

I now have the Channel 4 video screened. I then return to the podium and ask whether there are any points which the audience wants clarified. If so, I do.

I do not believe that the majority of Sinhalese are barbarians despite their ‘celebration’ of Rajapaksa’s ’victory’. I do believe that many, indeed most, of them will be horrified if they see what their Government has done to the Tamil civilians in the North and East

I then throw the ball into their court, “Now that you have seen what has gone on and is still going on behind the closed and censored door of Sri Lanka, what are you going to do about it? If it is simply to express horror and go home, then the whole point of seeing these videos is lost. It is not just a blood bath, it is more, much more. It is Genocide being committed with international observers excluded from the area – Genocide without witnesses, are you going to let that go uninvestigated and unpunished?”.

To counter any ‘patriotic Sinhalese’, and those who support the murderous Rajapaksa regime and claim that the Tamil Tigers have been crushed and “terrorism has been wiped out”, I ask the obvious question, “If that is so, and there are happy smiling Tamil people in the Tamil North and East, why is Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, International Crisis Group and International Media still not allowed to enter the area and speak with these happy people?” 

I point out that these are questions that must be raised with “your parliamentarians” asking them what they intend to do about it. If they intend to do nothing, then they will have to be prepared to admit thousands of asylum seekers and refugees, fleeing a barbaric regime in Sri Lanka.

As for the size of the audience, I do not think it matters. I have addressed and shown these videos to 10 or 300. The presentation is what matters, not the number of recipients.

I have been to meetings organized by others where just the Channel 4 video has been shown. After the meeting, non-Sri Lankans have come up to me and asked, “Are not the Tamils the terrorists?”  I tell them that Tamils are citizens of the country who have been in the country probably (on archeological evidence) for many centuries before the Sinhalese ever got there. I tell them that if after what they have seen they ask such questions, it is clear that they have no idea of what has gone on (and is still going on), in Sri Lanka. Since this is clearly the case from the question asked, they should organize another meeting where I will set out the basic facts about Sri Lanka and the complex ethnic problem in that country, which the Sri Lankan government is happy to dismiss as ‘nothing but Tamil terrorism’.

At most of the meetings I organize, I have a copy of the Channel 4 dvd (and now both dvds), and my dvd on ‘Sri Lanka: Genocide, Crimes against Humanity, Violation of International Law’. These are handed around free, with a request that instead of payment, I would appreciate it if it can be passed on to others, who can contact me if they want me to organize a meeting for them. This is obviously in Australia only. For other countries, someone else (one or, hopefully, many) will have to do this.

There is, however, a problem with these Channel 4 videos. There is no background information which is so important to appreciate why these atrocities occurred.

I will be more than happy to send the dvds and even the powerpoint presentation I have referred to – at no cost. All I need is a postal address.

To do so in Sri Lanka is a little more difficult with a murderous regime running the country. However, it is crucially important that my people, the Sinhalese, know what their Government has done (and is still doing) in their name.

I do not believe that the majority of Sinhalese are barbarians despite their ‘celebration’ of Rajapaksa’s ’victory’. I do believe that many, indeed most, of them will be horrified if they see what their Government has done to the Tamil civilians in the North and East. It must be remembered that in 1983 when the J.R.Jayawardene government organized and conducted the 1983 Tamil pogrom in Colombo and the South, it was my people, the Sinhalese, who risked life and limb to save hundreds, if not thousands, of Tamils. Had they not done so, far more than 3,000 Tamils would have been butchered by Jayewardene’s hoodlums and the thugs in yellow robes. Just for the record, my mother was a staunch Buddhist and I have gone to Buddhist temples with her for years.

It is also important to get the point across to the Sinhalese that yesterday it was the Tamil people, tomorrow it will be the Sinhalese, since this is what Totalitarian regimes have done for centuries – wipe out all who hold an opposing point of view or protest at, say, the rising cost of living, as is already happening in Sri Lanka. The blueprint is there.

My dvds will not be allowed into Sri Lanka. They will have to be smuggled in – a risky operation. The best I can suggest is that they be uploaded on to the internet. Someone in Sri Lanka might be able to download them. The same hold for the Channel 4 videos. I doubt if these will be freely available in Sri Lanka. However they are on the net – in a dedicated site thanks to Channel 4, and will remain there. The GoSL could well block this access as it has done to Tamilnet.

If we do not do this, the disinformation campaign that a succession of Sri Lankan governments have carried out both abroad and even in the Sri Lankan South, will ‘succeed’ and the world will remain ignorant of what goes on in one of the most repressive and brutal countries in the world – masquerading as a ‘Democracy’.

There is, of course, a price to pay. In Sri Lanka, it will be the arrival of a “White Van”, and that is it.

In counties outside Sri Lankait is intrusion by ‘patriotic’ Sinhalese who disrupt meetings (many of mine have been, but I now know how to handle these – get the ‘Security people’ to throw them out).

The other problem is telephone abuse. For at least three days after each of my talks or articles, I can look forward to abusive phone calls – “You mother f…..g Tamil Tiger c…t” etc. These come 15 minutes apart, day and night, to disrupt my work, and to make sure that I do not sleep. I respond to these using the Queens English rather than get into the verbal gutter with the caller. I say, “Sir/Madam (some are), I have always treated my mother with the utmost respect. If this is what you do to your mother, then you have a problem. May I suggest that you call my Secretary for an appointment to see me and I will point you in the right direction. I am sorry to disappoint you, but I am not a Tamil, nor a Tiger. As a student of human anatomy, may I also point out that your description of me is anatomically impossible. The organ needed for one act is not present in those who have the other. So you have to make up your mind as to what I have – it cannot be both. Thank you for calling. Feel free to call again but try and keep to the Queens English and not get into the gutter. It does not help. Goodnight Sir/Madam, Thank you for sitting up all night to call me”. This usually works. To lose your cool never works.

Why not take the phone off the hook. I cannot, because I am ‘on-call’ to some hospitals, and in any case, must be available for my patients. My letter box is vandalized on a regular basis.

To get back to the Channel 4 videos, it is crucial that they are shown to as many people as possible to counter the disinformation campaign of the GoSL. These videos must be shown but only after the presentation of a basic outline of the ethnic problem in Sri Lanka, emphasizing that what the GoSL is trying to do is to settle a political problem by wiping out a section of the population – the Tamils in the North and East.

    Last time i replied to this Doc,he didn’t like the way i addressed him.According to him my language was not up to standard.He expect me to address him with honor,then goes on to explain about his academic achievements.He then says that he only use Queens language.Hey Elizabeth of Windsor fame take note of this ole brown doc!Doc,if you care to sneak around Buckingham,gran pa Philips,i am sure will be kind enough to present you with some Royal memorabilia such as worn out shoes,top hats etc.Our doc belongs to a dying breed of boot lickers. Doc,by any chance do you have some sort of connection with Ehelepola,Eknaligoda?If Elizebeth comes to know of this boot licking doc,i am sure that she’ll have no hesitation in awarding him a knighthood.Ole doc,instead of wasting your precious time here,how about applying for a job at Buckingham?Surely the Royals wouldn’t want to have a browny as a doc at the palace,but you should be lucky enough to find something in the Royal kennel.
    This doc says that he chucked his job in Srilanka because they didn’t want him to teach the students in English.Then he goes on to say that he was called the “Black Englishman”. Doc i have an idea of how to get rid of the “Black” tag.Do a “Michal Jackson”type skin peeling job and then you will be the “White Englishman”.So doc,i disrespect you in the way i address you,eh!Hey dude!how shall i address you?Sir,Your worship,your Excellency!I will do that,but first you’d better get that stupid knighthood.
    Last time i suggested that this dude be admitted to Angoda accompanied by tons of blank papers and pens.He then corrects me and say that he is in Australia.If this doc is already not in an Aussie nut house,i’d better inform the Austarlian HC.As for turning your skin into white i will try to put you in touch with Jackson’s plastic surgeon.
    Now this jerk swears that the the channel four revelations should be investigated and the murderous Rajapakse should be put behind bars.Quite true.If Rajapakse had allowed the Tiger monsters to carry on with their killing spree,the same ole doc would have suggested that Rajapakse be awarded the Nobel prize.Talking of Prizes,i am sure that doc Brian would be a strong contender for the “Prabakaran memorial peace Prize”.But doc i have to warn you,you have competition here coming from the likes of Rayappu,Emmanuelle(Nothing got to do with porn),Paki,Jehan,Sunanda,Nimalka,Sunila to name a few.
    Doc,regarding your reference to channel four,i have a better idea.Princess Diana was murdered by the MI5.In fact the driver of the Fiat Uno was also murdered as a cover up.The documentary “unlawful killing”which exposed the barbaric murder of the princess was banned in UK.The god fathers of free media and freedom of speech!You say that you have some DVDs to be given out free,and request to send Email addresses for those who want copies.How about adding the DVD”Unlawful killing” to your collection?By the way don’t you have copies of “Srimaha Bodhi,Aranthalawa,Central bank,Kabithigollewa” killings?As a marketing gimmick it would be in your interest to identify yourself as”Brian the doctor of horrors”.But before marketing your dvds don’t you think that you ought to get permission from CT?Oh!i forgot,When did you terrorists get permission?I hear that you had been trying to gatecrash at GOSL cocktail parties in Geneva and that you had been caught red handed.Anyway Brian doc of horrors keep up the good work.Oh!by the way no need of email addresses,we will send one of our representatives to meet you to get a few copies of your DVDs.Till then wait in hope.

      You said LTTE is terrorist organization…

      I completely agree with you Max Silva (Hope you are not a clone of Dr.Mervin Silva).

      My question is.. how you differentiate the SL government from a terrorist organization..

      LTTE Killed civilians.. So did the GoSL.
      LTTE conscripted the Child soldiers.. Gosl bombed the Nagarkovil maha vidyalaym and and masscred the children.

      LTTE massacred in Bhudist Monk.. SL airforce bombed the Navali church and perished over 150 civilians in 1995.

      LTTE used the civilians as human shields and the GoSL shelled the NO FIRE zone and killed tens of thousands of people.

      JUST because the GoSL is elected by majority Sinhalese people and a legitimate government… Do you think it is also legitimate and legal to kill all the civilian in the name of wiping out LTTE.

      What about the riots before 1980s.. LTTE caused them.?????.

      Now the LTTE terrorism is over .. but the GoSL terrorism continues..

      Don’t USE LTTE to justify your slaugher of tamils…

        The Tamil Tiger terrorists latest trick is identifying themselves as civilians.These blood thirsty monsters murdered thousands of poor civilians when they were in full swing.Thank god the barbarians are no more.Crying for civilian deaths is another farce by the leftover Tamil Tiger terrorists.

      There are two things suggest me that you work in a fish market in Pettah or somewhere.
      1)use (abuse) of language. Its so disgusting
      2)its only in the fish market in Colombo people use pen and paper to write. We live in the computer age and in Australia Dr Brian uses a computer to write. So keep the pen and paper for yourself.will be useful in the fish market..
      By the way,Your inappropriate comments tell me that its YOU who need a PERMANENT bed in Angoda hospital. Can be arranged.

        Gowri,
        I am not dealing with persons of high moral here.what we find here is barbaric terrorists.They understand only a certain type of expressions.They come in all shapes and colors.i.e.Doctors,intellectuals,priests,journalists,human rights activists etc.But still the bottom line is that they all barrack for a terror outfit.It’s not who you are that matters,but what you are.For instance Doc Brian identifies himself as a doctor.If he takes his time to treat the sick,i am sure he will be worshiped like a god.But the Doc Brian that i know of is an apologist for the Tamil Tiger terrorists.So i treat him the way a terrorist deserves.If a doctor is caught with his pants down in a brothel house,do you respect him as a doctor?The Tamil tiger terrorists have found some new allies whose names are tagged with Dr.But as far as i am concerned they are just criminals.Now have i used abusive language to your reply?But i will return what i get.Talking about abusive language,have you read the sort of abusive language being used against a head of state?The problem with you terrorists is that you feel that you have the right to attack with anything and everything,but when it’s returned you cry foul!Diversify views is anathema to you.At CT 90% of posts and replies are pro tiger terrorists views.But you can’t tolerate the remaining anti tiger terrorists views.Do you want to see CT going down the route of the Tamilnet which had been blocked?If you can’t tolerate different views you’d better go back to jungle warfare which you are used to.Don’t try to pull the wool over our eyes by resorting to phony decent tactics.

      Max,
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBHDfrJPrbk

      You can call me a terrorist for being a Tamil or any names if that makes you happy. But I am not and never been a terrorist. I never even raised my hand to a child. Does that make me a terrorist. You watch this youtube clip above. The person (head of state as you say) in this video clip says he picked up the gun to protect his land from the occupiers. If a Sinhalese picks up the gun, it is seen as defense and if a Tamil picks up the gun to protect his land and his human rights its seen as terrorism, is it? How does one justify this Max?…Here is the evidence! You have a terrorist as head of state..So, nothing wrong in calling him names…Do you want to call the notorious dictators Hitler, Mussolini, Milosevic, Gadaffi, Saddam Hussein, Franco, Assad, Mubarak, Ceaucescou and so on as ” excellency”? Then you can call MaRa “Excellency” too. But unfortunately your excellency will join this notorious list very soon. You are sleep walking. Wake up!
      Oppressors don’t like resistance. The oppressors point of view is an oppressed must always be an oppressed. When the oppressed resist the oppression, the oppressors brand them ‘terrorist’. Do you know what happened to Nelson Mandela? Let me jog your memory. When he stood up for his rights, when he resisted the apartheid the white oppressors branded him “terrorist” and threw him in jail for 27 years. . Is Mandela a terrorist? When Che Guevara stood in solidarity with the Cuban, the Americans branded him a terrorist. Was he a terrorist? Most often ‘terrorism’ phrase is being used by the oppressors as a weapon to cover up their crime. You know what? Had Che Guevara been alive today he would have been in solidarity with the Tamils for sure.

      You are wrong in calling Dr. Brian an anti-Sinhalese. He isn’t. He is not against the Singhalese but the chauvanist government and you must understand that. He is fighting injustice.. He is a good soul and It IS his soul that is driving him to fight for the justifiable cause of Tamils. As for him it is not about being a Singhalese or Tamil, It’s about being a fellow human being. As Martin Luther King said ” The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people”. He is a good person and thats what expected of him. You cannot expect him to be silent on the injustices that are being meted to the Tamils or any human beings.

    Your notion that Sri Lankans celebrated the death of Prabaakaran is incorrect. Sri Lankans did not celebrete any ones death. They celebrated the end of a terror filled dark era of Sri Lanka. How could you have known You were not here to see and live the suffering.
    You said yesterday it was the Tamil people, but you forget the day before and the day before that it was Sinhala people but then nor you or any of the others who split their hairs now made a hum.
    About your DVD’s when you smuggle them to Sri Lanka Do’nt forget to smuggle some people also to give them to because people here knows all about you and your videos.

    Each time I read Dr Brian Senewiratne’s essays I feel that his analysis is largely one-sided, in that he seems biased against the Sinhala people and seeming to relish his role as a spokesperson for the rather extremist end of the Tamil diaspora. He also comes through as a relict of a bygone era of a majority member standing up for the oppressed minority (a noble cause?)

    These roles aside, there are many aspects to his narrative that fail his cause, as he simply does not balance it with any negative analysis of his fan-base nor does he attempt to discuss any positive characteristics of his opponents (ie the successive governments of Sri Lanka)

    Accordingly, his writings must essentially be classed as lacking in credibility and fairness, despite his enthusiasm and passion.

    Thanks Dr.Brian Senewiratne
    state violence which targeted at the Tamil communities has been persistent and increasingly systematic since independence in 1948. After independence in 1948, the new governments deprived the Tamils of education, jobs, and housings, and Tamil plantation workers of the vote and continued with the suppression of their voices with brutal force. The government and its armed forces are continuing with the worst forms of enforced abductions, disappearances, mass arrests, torture, ethnic cleansing, sexual harassments, attacks, destroying hard earned properties and extrajudicial killings against its Tamils citizens in the process of consolidating to completely annihilate the entire Tamil race from the face of Sri Lanka. There is a long history of violence against Tamils in the island. Anti-Tamil pogroms of 1956, 1958, 1961, 1977, 1981 and 1983,..countless instances of massacres and disappearances of Tamils at the hands of the armed forces.. In 1956, Tamil leaders gathered on Galle Face Green in peaceful protest. They were broken up by violence and thugs. This was attributed to Sinhala chauvinism. Every non-violent protest of Tamils was crushed by force,violently. Thus, young Tamils decided non-violent resistance wouldn’t work and they picked up the arms to protect themselves from the chauvinist attacks and resisted the brutal force of the armed forces.. Young Tamils spoke to the racist government with the language the government understood. When Tamils refused to bow their head when repeatedly knocked and refused to live as slaves in shame, the terrorist government butchered hundred of thousands of innocent Tamil civilians in the name of eliminating ‘terrorism’..Stealing Tamil’s land through militarization in the name of ‘reconciliation’..Next you Sinhalese!Because SriLanka belongs to the Rajapakshe family. They will do anything they want.. If you ask questions you will be picked up in a white van, killed and thrown in the street.

    Doctor, you said that majority of Sinhala people do not know the full horror of the attacks on Tamil civilians. I am not sure of this. It is almost impossible to see a Sinhala person who sympathise for the terror committed on them by the Sri Lankan government. on the contrary, there are thousands of Sinhala people who has seen the videos and read about the various independent evidences showing the crimes against humanity, still deny them and go and call any one who says what the government did was wrong as a LTTE tiger. I am from Colombo and have many Sinhala friends in London. Not one is ashamed about it. as far as I can see, all these decent educated civilised Sinhalese, i consider them as friends will be happy celebrate if one of the cluster bombs kills my family and me, just because I am a Tamil.

    Let us assume that what the LTTE did in their Right is a Liberation fight
    but Terrorism and was thought a lesson. Why then proceed with a
    genocidal agenda even three years after the victory?

    Children born to SL parents Overseas (90% of them being tamils) who
    have the legal provision to be Registered Citizens (up to the age of
    22 yrs. with provision to rescind it thereafter) are deprived of this
    Registration by the MOD? Legislative Act No. 18 of 1948 was in effect
    until HE s debacle at Oxford – when he unilaterally made the Dept.
    put “Registration” on hold. Are the public aware of such a structured
    genocidal by their Govt.?

    It is a sad situation where the majority whether they be Tamil or Sinhaleae civilised citizens just sat and watched while the scum of both Tamils and the Sinhalese thought it fit to deny and avenge each other in their quest for power and position. These forces were fuelled from outside and had it’s toll, where thousands have paid with their lives. In this scenario there are still Tamils, who sell their cause to break bread with the corrupt Sinhalese leadership for position and power.

    Before we go hell for leather on this one, it may be prudent to take a step back and re-assess. I saw on the Daily Mirror Headlines today, that a former LTTE member has disputed the authenticity of Dr. Brian Seneviratne’s tapes.

    So, I think the good Dr. Will be willing to wait awhile, along with all parties concerned, to hear about that side of the story as well, considering that the LTTE’r also sounded as equally enthusiastic, passionate and as driven as Dr. Seneviratne on his side of the story.

    The article referred in the Daily Mirror by Chandrani, is by Daya Master who has said the LTTE fabricated videos to gain propaganda. If that be so, Daya Master an LTTEer who is in govt. custody for quite some time should have come out with this piece of evidence when the CH4 released the first video. Why did he wait all this while? It appears the govt. of Sri Lnka had concocted this story now in their effort to ridicule the CH4 video which appears very damaging.

    “It is also important to get the point across to the Sinhalese that yesterday it was the Tamil people, tomorrow it will be the Sinhalese, since this is what Totalitarian regimes have done for centuries”

    But day before yesterday it was also the Sinhalese. Have you forgotten the 1987-89 JVP insurrection and its bloody defeat? 60,000 Sinhalese were killed in two years, most in ’89.

    Dr Senewiratne now takes it as accepted that Ch4 has proven crimes against humanity, and attempts to now give background. Once a lie is repeated long enough, you can forego substantiating it and move on to building upon it.

    Satha, the Sinhalese may not have opted to settle in the Northern part may be due to the fact that it was already inhabited. Hence in the Centre and the South. As for your claim that how the Tamils world over contribute to your cause, we know how the funds were collected. As much as there is scum among the Sinhalese, there is scum among the Tamils also.

    Dear Dinasaur,
    In fact i stopped gulping those dreadful tablets ever since that wonderful human being “Velu” had his final journey at Nandikadal lagoon.Don’t misread for Blue lagoon. I am pleased to spare you the remaining tablets which are of no use to me anymore.But if it’s very urgent pl contact Paki in Geneva,i gave him a few.Make sure that you share the wonder tablets with your long lost friend the Doc Brian.Oh!by the way did you check the dog houses and the nut houses for Doc Brian’s whereabouts?I need his faked pirated DVDs which he promised to smuggle.

      Dear Max,

      You are always complaining about “Velu”.
      I don’t see any difference between velu and Mahinda mama..
      Velu’s terrorism is no more.. But mahinda mama is still in the power and his terrorism goes on…

      Why couldn’t you understand the pathetic plight of the tamils, sinhales and Muslims under the present GoSL…

      Why don’t you talk about it..

      You always live in the past..

    There have been serious questions raised about the photographs that are included in this article. The Australian Tamil activist Noel Nadesan claims in his blog that when he visited the Vanni he was told, by people connected with the LTTE, that these photographs “were taken for propaganda purposes by the LTTE”. He also notes that if you look carefully at the first of these photos you can see one of the supposed “SLA soldiers” wearing slippers, and points out that “Sri Lankan soldiers never go about in slippers when they go out on operations”.

    Other analyses of the Channel 4 ‘documentary’ suggest that the program was a carefully constructed propaganda piece. Certainly, the program turns a selectively blind eye to the known atrocities committed by the Tamil Tigers at the end of the war – and over the prior 30 years.
