Chief Minister Wigneswaran Worships Serial Rapist & Murderer Premananda

By Veluppillai Thangavelu

Veluppillai Thangavelu

There is a proverb in English language “Show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are…”  It  means  find wise people and be in their company as much as possible. Very few know the dark side of Chief Minister C. V. Wigneswaran‘s life or they know but pretend ignorance. In a recent interview M.A. Sumanthiran alluded that Wigneswaran is a devotee of Premananda who was convicted of raping under-aged orphan girls living in his Ashram and murder of a young engineer Ravi. All the victims of Premananda’s sexual exploits were young girls from Jaffna who followed Premananda when he emigrated to Tamil Nadu following the 1983 communal riots.  

Premananda was born on November 17, 1951 at Mandandawela in Matala. His real name is Premkumar Somasunderam but later took the name Premananda meaning one possessed with love and eternal bliss. Premananda’s father Somasunderam is from Thanjavur in Tamil Nadu. He married Pushpakanthi. Premkumar (his original name)  attended Christ Church College in Matala until 8th standard. The house he was born is still there after undergoing renovation.  

His biography reveals that as a young schoolboy Premkumar could manifest sweets or fruits out of nowhere for his friends, and he became renowned in his school for multiplying his lunch food, for holding erudite discussions on philosophical subjects and even for performing miraculous healings. Knowing that he could immediately see anyone’s problems and infallibly predict their future, the parents of his friends became the boy’s first devotees before he reached adolescence. As news of his powers spread, hundreds of people in  cities and villages began to seek his blessings and healings.  

At the age of 16, after Premkumar used to conduct prayers, ceremonies and interviews in his grandmother’s house. As time passed an Ashram was built to welcome the crowds of people who flocked to see him. Named the ‘Centre of Peace for All Religions’ with symbols of every major faith painted on inside walls.  

In 1969 while he was addressing some 200 devotees who had gathered to listen, his body began to glow and a saffron coloured robe suddenly seemed to descend on him. A saffron coloured garb is that of an initiated Hindu monk. At the time he was only 18 years old but from then onwards he became known as Swami Premananda. He often materialised holy ash or vibhuti from thin air. It was claimed that even as a toddler he exhibited an unusual interest in spirituality. While his brothers and sisters played outside, Premananda could be found performing poojas (rituals) with his grandmother, or facing a wall in a corner absorbed in deep meditation. It is said that if he thought too much about the divine or the lives of saints, he would fall into an unconscious state of rapture. 

In 1983 Premananda’s  modest Ashram was destroyed during 1983 communal pogrom, so he emigrated to Tamil Nadu with some orphan children and settled down in Thiruchi. Soon his name became famous, next only to another god man Sai Bava, for materialising objects like lingam, rings, chains and even watches made in Japan. He bought 150 acres of land at Viralimalai in Pudukkoddai and set up an Ashram and an orphanage. The Ashram was officially opened in 1989 and  about 100 boys and girls lived in the Ashram, most of  them orphaned during 1983 riots. In the Ashram all the children are provided with food, clothing, and shelter, schooling and medical attention free of charge. Premananda’s Ashram flourished and he set up Premananda Centres and Premananda Youth Groups in many countries, including UK, Switzerland, Belgium. The aim of the Ashram, Centres and Groups is to offer spiritual guidance and help to all who come and to offer service to those in need throughout the world. It is claimed Premananda’s teachings are universal and transcend the barriers of race and religion. 

Many politicians and several foreigners became his devotees. They were mesmerised by his production of vibhuti (sacred ash) by sleight of hand. He wore saffron clothes and had a kinky hairdo. When the girls reached puberty, he raped them, hoodwinking them into believing that he had divine powers. Educated fools mistook him as a god incarnation and became his followers. One of them is ex Supreme Court justice and current Chief Minister of Northern Provincial Council Wigneswaran who considers him as his Supreme Guru.  

Normally god men look intensely charismatic and attract followers, especially women in their thousands. But,  the stoutly built,  dark-skinned  and bearded Premananda possessed no such charisma, but the magical powers he claimed attracted both the educated and uneducated. They were mesmerised by his production of vibhuti (sacred ash) by sleight of hand. He wore saffron clothes and had a kinky hairdo. When the girls reached puberty, he raped them.  

Wigneswaran at the commencement of his speech makes it a point to  pay homage to his guru whom he considers as Guru of Gurus. “குருப்பிரமா, குரூர் விஷ்ணு, குரூர் தேவோ மகேஷ் வரஹ, குருட் ஷாட்ஷாத் பரப்பிரம தஸ்மை ஸ்ரீ குருவே நமஹா! (Homage to Gurur Brahma Gurur Vishnu Gurur Devo Maheshwaraha Guru Sakshat Parabrahma tasmai Shri Guruve Namaha.) This is a Sanskrit recital paying homage to the Trinity of Hindu Gods—Brahma, the creator; Vishnu, the protector and Maheswaran, the destroyer. “You are my preceptor,” it states, “And I revere your name.” 

Premananda recites this prayer on Guru Purnima day, a day to remember the saints, sages, avatars and spiritual masters who guide followers on the spiritual path and who have been born on this earth from the time the world was created.  On this day which comes once in 365 days, Premananda exhorts his flock to  think about those great souls and chant, “Gurur Brahma, Gurur Vishnu, Gurur Devo Maheshwaraha” and think of the Supreme who is the Guru of Gurus. Then think of the spiritual master you have accepted as your Guru and chant his or her name nine times. Furthermore, accepting a spiritual master as your Guru may be your wish, but if that Guru, too, accepts you, it will be your great, good fortune. Guru Purnima is the day to remind us of that fortune. It goes without saying Wigneswaran’s spiritual master is serial  rapist  Premananda and this recital is homage to him.  

Till 1993 Premananda’s fame and name rivalled that of only Sai Bava of Puddaparthi in terms of wealth and number of  followers, including foreigners! As usual, it was claimed Premananda  was  a reincarnation of a great and very learned scholar, spiritualist  and sage Vivekanda. Some of his devotees called Premananda Thiruchi Sai Bava.  

With the AIADMK coming to power in 1991, the Ashram  gained enormous political clout. Apart from various Ministers, Jayalalithaa’s foster sister, Sasikala Nadarajan (now a convict and in jail for corruption) and her family were regular visitors here. However, few knew about the goings-on in the Ashram  —seduction, molestation, rape and debauchery—till November 1994. Two women residents of the Ashram, Sureshkumari and Latha, escaped and came to Chennai in November 1994, and spoke to the press about the activities in the Ashram. The All India Democratic Women’s Association (AIDWA), affiliated to the Communist Party of India (Marxist), took up their cause. 

On the morning of 19th November, 1994 the stillness of the Ashram was shattered when a battalion of police officers with machine guns raided the Ashram in armoured vehicles. Premananda was arrested and remanded to judicial custody the next day. His associate Kamalananda and his wife Dr Chandra Devi were also lodged in the Thiruchi Central Jail for abetting sex-related crimes and for performing crude medical termination of pregnancies of their victims.

Subsequent investigations revealed the murder of engineer Ravi, who had opposed the un-holy activities at the Ashram. He was tortured for a few days before being killed and buried. The police exhumed his remains on November 24, 1994 and on the same day, police also seized documents, fixed deposit receipts worth Rs 75 lakhs and details of other investments. They found that Premananda was among the top tax defaulters with arrears of Rs 1.5 crores. 

Even as the police started its investigation, the Ashram witnessed a steady exodus of the foreigners. Divya Mathaji, Premananda’s girl friend and the inmate in charge, fled the country to Germany and later to France. Assets worth Rs 80 lakhs in her name was frozen. During the early stages of the investigation, Premananda was confident that his friends in the ruling AIADMK would save him from the long arm of the law. Indeed, the police was asked to go slow in the case. However, with the change of government, the investigations were resumed in right earnest. 

The First Information Report, which is the primary stage of complaint by an alleged victim that a criminal offence has taken place was submitted after the story had  leaked  to the press. The first newspaper article appeared on 5th November 1994, but Suresh Kumari only filed the complaint with the police on 17th November, 1994 accusing I Premananda of raping her 8 years previously.  

On 19th and 20th November many people were taken away from the Ashram by the police for investigation and inquiries. In total 20 girls and young women (aged between 14 and 35) were taken away for interrogation.  

In January 1995, a medical examination ordered by the court confirmed the rape of 13 girls and one of them Aruljothi was pregnant at that time. She sought court permission to abort the foetus. To prove medically that Premananda was raping the girls, a foetus aborted from Aruljothi, in January 1995 was examined by a forensic scientist for the prosecution, Dr. Lalji Singh. The prosecution stated that his DNA findings showed that Premananda was the father of the foetus.  

The Defence called a DNA expert from the United Kingdom, Dr. Wilson J. Wall a specialist in genetics. The results of his test, done according to international DNA standards  gave a contradictory opinion and stated  Premananda had not fathered the foetus. However, the court rejected Dr. Wall’s test results and the scientific explanations given by him.   

The charge against Premananda was that behind smokescreen of dispensing Bhakti in his Ashram near Thiruchi in Tamil Nadu, he raped women devotees and forced those who became pregnant into abortion. He also murdered an engineer, Ravi, who stood up to his venal activities. Premananda, a Tamil of Indian origin, hails from Matala in Sri Lanka, where he ran an Ashram. In the wake of the anti-Tamil pogrom by the Sinhalese on the island in July 1983, he came to Tamil Nadu as a refugee with some Tamil girls and women. He started an Ashram near Viralimalai in Pudukoddai district, which had modern buildings, air-conditioned cottages and an orphanage.  

To cut the story short, on 20th August, 1997 after a lengthy trial the Pudukoddai District sessions judge, R. Bhanumathi (currently Justice of the Supreme Court of India) in a landmark judgement, sentenced self-styled  god man Premananda to life imprisonment for two consecutive terms (32 years) and  fined  Rs 67.30 lakhs for 13 counts of rape, molestations of two girls  and a murder.  Failure to pay the fine was to carry an additional term of 32 years and 9 months. He was also convicted of cheating the residents of his Ashram which carried another one-year sentence. Six others (all from Jaffna) were also found guilty of conspiracy to commit rapes and destroying evidence. Five were given life sentences. In view of the severity of the crimes, the judge denied them any future remission of their sentences or amnesty by any state or central government. 

Premananda’s appeal to the Madras High Court proved futile. The High Court on December 12 confirmed District Court order sentencing fake sanyasi Swami Premananda and his secretary Kamalananda to double consecutive life imprisonment. Justices P. Shanmugam and M. Chockalingam of the High Court said: “The proceedings are unique and have shown the vulnerability of the orphans, especially the girls, and the need for their protection. They have revealed to what extent persons professing to be spiritual gurus could screen their true profiles.”

Two women residents of the Ashram, Suresh Kumari and Latha, escaped and came to Chennai in November 1994, and spoke to the press about the clandestine activities in the Ashram. The All India Democratic Women’s Association (AIDWA), affiliated to the Communist Party of India (Marxist), took up their cause. The police filed a case against Premananda and others. Tamil newspapers published the sordid tales of torture, rape and so forth in the Ashram under the veneer of poojas and bhajans. On August 20, 1997, Pudukkoddai Sessions Judge R. Bhanumathi convicted and sentenced Premananda to two consecutive life terms and slapped on him a fine of Rs.66.40 lakhs for multiple rape and murder. He and the other accused filed an appeal in the Madras High Court (Frontline, September 19, 1997 and December 16, 1994).

    Good hatchet job Mr Golden Spear. What is your motive in all this in your old age? Why denigrate the living Wigneswaran through his obviously misguided “worship” of a godman. There are other more popular godmen in India of whom similar things are said and very influential people follow them. Maybe Buddha and Jesus were also imperfect godmen, one who left his wife and child and the other also with many imperfections. Unfortunately, as Hindus we are asked to look for a guru who can give us spiritual guidance. Maybe, CVW chose his wrongly. But, does that affect his politics, his stature as a former judge or as a leader. At your age, it may not be good to throw such heavy stones. Have a regard to hernia.

      CVW could have avoided such reminders of his personal flaws–
      like his forwarding note to Modi in a plea to release the rapist-killer Premananda’s accomplices –had he kept his private beliefs to himself.
      This string of attacks arose from his equating Premananda to Jesus Christ.
      There are bigger issues that concern the socio-political conduct of CVW that need discussion, which get distracted by such irrelevancies (except that they make one question CVW’s judgment).

        yobbish phlegm.!
        dirty linen dirty wash, dirty Veluppillai Thangavelu spurting venom over the wall . the article is the typical village mindset of the north which was disliked by the urban elite of colombo 7.

        Veluppillai Thangavelu repeat constant repeat of paragraphs shows that he is possessed by stupidity. many rich folk of colombo 7 were impressed by this illusionist and his knowledge. Anyway, the madras court was vindictive and politically instigated that is how cruel madras courts are – power is more important for judges to hang on. The report submitted by defence from a british expert was disallowed without reason is a familiar quality of indian power politics.

        Veluppillai Thangavelu writes as if he was holding the candle during sexual activity for non other than a new entry to colombo 7 through the back door of political push-

      You are right. The author interpreted that proberb inaccurately. When we follow Lord Buddha or Lord Krishna or Lord Jesus our focus is only on what he preaches to the society. As far chief minister CVW is concerned he is a follower of the principles of that swamy’s teachings. Unlike many other crooks like Mahinda or Gota or even Sampanthan, He is honest, he is not a thug, he does not get bribe, he obeys the law, he respects the human rights, he respects other religions, he listens to the people, he is not a terrorist or racist or fundamentalist.

        I think that this attack on CVW was unnecessary, and I am no admirer of Sampanthan in any way.
        But how can you list Sampanthan alongside Mahinda and Gota in: “He is honest, he is not a thug, he does not get bribe, he obeys the law, he respects the human rights, he respects other religions, he listens to the people, he is not a terrorist or racist or fundamentalist.”
        *
        True that Sampanthan is politically dishonest. Is not CVW? Perhaps he is more honest than S, but that is inadequate.
        S, if at all, is only as racist as CVW or less.
        S does not listen to the public, but does CVW? I have quite a list of issues in which he was indifferent to public concerns.
        CVW has protected bribe-takers. (The last bit of NPC theatre had little to do with anti-corruption). To my knowledge, S has not got caught doing that .
        Is equating a criminal convict to Christ respect for other religions?
        *
        Do you know what the principles of the rapist murderer “Swamy” are? Others may be interested to know.
        CVW is closer to the TNPF which is more indifferent towards the Muslims than the TNA.

          “”CVW is closer to the TNPF which is more indifferent towards the Muslims than the TNA.”” Muslims were tenants now they are looking for ownership of the land (sometimes via forged documentation) because of the push they got from Obama administration and now Athul without the consent of State Department of today.

          In any administration when the head of a place is super clean (has enough and is very intelligent so has to toggle diplomatically) the high class rats have a wail of a time.

    He was chased out from Matale not that he went in 1983 for the communal pogrom. He went before the violent because he by force tied Thali (In a Hindu Matrimonial groom ties around the bride’s neck in a ceremony called Mangalya Dharanam) to a beautiful girl who was his friend’s sister. Those days he had a lot of Muslim friends whom he relates interesting stories- since these guys are Muslims and talk in Tamil he had close relationship with them to have fun, they don’t believe his gimmicks, he too was young then use to relates different stories all about girls to them ( they are still living in Matale one of them is my good friend), Most of the Matale people don’t believe his holiness. In the evening the said boys go to Mahatma Ashram to have fun with him. He is a cheat nothing else.

    I am extremely disappointed that all educated people are running after these self style “Gurus” who are really crooks. This chap Premananda was cheapest among the cheap. He has been proved as an organized crook and sex lunatic beyond any doubt.The judiciary noticed that he is one of the most dangerous criminal who involved in numerous rapes and murder cases. His ill dealings were strongly testified by a Jaffna born Tamil who brought him to the justice in the court .Politicians and business people are having ill-gotten wealth and they run after these kind of priest and fake religious leaders with hidden agendas. During my PhD research period, I could distinctly remember that one of the guys was saying that Swami Premananda brings out Shivling from his mouth another guy spontaneously questioned him that so from his underwear what he can bring out.I sincerely feel that we do not require any intermediate between man and the god.Most of the crimes and violence are created or instigated by these fake priests of EVERY RELIGION. Hinduism is not an exception here.We have plenty of sch kind of people are available in all religions around the globe

    It is sad to see Mr Golden Spear, the bearer of the name of the ultimate Guru of Saivaite Tamils, Murugan, stoop to gather dirt to throw at another aging individual on the basis of the latter’s avowal of piety towards a false guru. Unfortunately, this is more an Indian tradition than the Jaffna Saivite tradition, where gurus like Yogar Swamigal were mendicants like the Indian Ramana Maharishi. Their lives are recounted in a book on the Siddha Tradition among the Tamils of Ceylon. Certainly, the guy Mr Golden Spear talks of will not be classed among the Tamil Siddhas. CVW made a wrong choice. Choosing Indian saints is an aberration of the Ceylon Tamil rich. Anyway, CVW’s choice is his business. The taint is that he is a bad man because he chose the wrong godman. Think of the Indian politicians who chose a variety of scoundrels like Chandraswami and the head of the Madurai Adeenam who chose a young sex maniac to be his successor or the murder charges against the present head of the Kanchi Adeenam. The lesson is to avoid choosing such gurus, knowing that Murugan, the bearer of the Golden Spear is the Ultimate and Certain Guru. “Kuruvai Varuvai Arulvai Kuhane”- (“Muruga, come, be my Guru”). I do hope that you live up to your name and have peace instead of making this personal attack against CVW with the intention of benefitting some other tainted person and thereby compounding the intensity of the personal tussles that exist among Tamil politicians.

    Even Satya Sai Baba was in the same category as Premananda. Sai Baba was more powerful with the support of the Indian politicians, he escaped punishment for rape and murder. There are

    Veluppillai Thangavelu: “Chief Minister Wigneswaran Worships Serial Rapist & Murderer Premananda”
    There are two statements here. The first is Wigneswaran worships Premananda and the second is Premananda is a serial rapist and murderer.
    The fact that Wigneswaran worshipped a “Godman” was probably well know – certainly to the Lankan judiciary. They never held this against him. Sambanthan and Sumathiran knew this when they canvassed him for the CM-ship. Probably this man Veluppillai Thangavelu knew this. Now they find that W has an independent mind. So this foul-mouthing. Is Thangavelu against Godperson worship? That will make T a rationalist! But T believes in astrology and Brahman priests uttering things in an unknown language (not Sanskrit) in Hindu temples.
    Is T worried about Godpersons in general? Many believe that all Godpersons are frauds. Why is T picking on Premananda? He has got these inside information but why the devil did he not divulge these earlier?
    The Indian court verdict on Premananda? Remember Perarivalan was sentenced by an Indian court to death because the prosecutors said that he had a receipt of two AA batteries in his pocket.
    Thangavelu sagaciously says “Show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are…”.
    We bloody well know your circle of friends Thangavelu.

      His faith in the ‘godman’, his ‘magical skills’, and above all his ‘innocence’ were at best amusing to me.
      The Tamilnadu public are well aware of what went on in the ‘aashram’ of Premananda. It was such a scandal that legal action followed mounting public concerns.
      It is unfair to Perarivalan and the co-accused to compare their case with that of a rascal in robes, with a sordid record back in Matale.
      *
      But it was not funny when he endorsed his support for the release of accomplices of the ‘godman’ in an appeal to Modi two years ago.
      He denied the charge to say that he only forwarded a plea, but went silent when a copy of the letter with his words of support (that also claimed that the charges were cooked up) was made public.

    “As far chief minister CVW is concerned he is a follower of the principles of that swamy’s teachings” Ajith.
    I have never heard this logic before! So you are concerned with the teachings and not the teacher? So you will follow the teachings of a teacher, even if the teacher is found a serial rapist, a murderer and a crook? You will follow the teachings of a butcher if he preaches about non-violence? You will follow a drunkard if he preaches about prohibition?
    Teachers like Buddha and Jesus practised what they preached. In contrast, Premananda preached to the gullible during day time and when night falls he was raping under-aged orphaned girls under his protection. By erecting a temple and installing the statue of Premananda a convicted serial rapist and murderer is Wigneswaran not trampling on women’s rights?

    The writer seems to have a political axe to grind. Is he trying a smear campaign against CVW on behalf of TNA and Sumanthiran? His article is lopsided and lacks substance and coherence. CVW is one of the finest and honest politicians Tamils ever had in a very long time. Some people took refuge in safe havens while fanning hatred and discord in Sri Lanka. That’s how they caused chaos and destruction in the Tamil areas in the last three decades. Premananda’s crimes dwarf compared to this!!

    “In a recent interview M.A. Sumanthiran alluded that Wigneswaran is a devotee of Premananda”..

    It seems CVW was a devotee of Premananda long before the Premananda was caught with his pants down.
    Premananda was jailed in early 90s.
    CVW became a Sri Lankan Supreme Court Judge in 2001!
    Why CVW was promoted to SC in 2001?
    CVW was selected as a CM candidate few years ago. Why CVW’s personal spiritual belief wasn’t an issue when SAM &Co introduced CVW to people in North?

    It seems Thangam was paid to do the dirty work by SUM &Co. What a Pathetic Clowns!

      Dirty clowns, this character assassination is politically motivated to reduce the popularity of CW in the North, East and all over the world. The dirty trio [sam, sum, mavai] assigned this man to bring down the good image of CW. The ITAK is very desperate and furious about the sudden rise of CW. These agents are assigned to do the dirty work for the trio. Shame.

    I thought this article was written by Mr.H.L.D.Mahindapala, the infamous gossip who writes venomous and racially biased garbage here. Never expected Mr Thangavelu doing this “hitting below the belt” style or this kind of cheap and degrading stuff about a distinguished, honest & a god fearing person of CVW’s calibre.
    I was shocked and felt very sad. Still couldn’t stomach the write up. This kind of vomit only bring down the image, many of us had about Mr Thangavelu. What happened to his intellectual thinking suddenly ? Mr Velu, you have written many impressive articles in the past and I was very proud reading some of those.
    No matter what, this particular tabloid kind of garbage is not worthy of the paper it was printed and I humbly request Mr T.Velu to stop this (often repeated) nonsensical stuff and the continuation of the same again…Just leave Premanada & CM Wigneswaran alone please without slinging mud and make yourself a cheap gossip….Thank you.

    There is no doubt Thangavelu is laughing stock. Premananda died in Cudolre Central prison on 21 Feb 2011. That is nearly two years before the Northern Provincial council election. Everyone including Sambandan know that Wigneswaran is a devotee of Premananda. So, why do they ask Wigneswaran to contest the election if worships a serial rapist. For the part of this insane guy, Thangavelu who is the leader of ITAK – Canada branch, they have collected SL Rs. 1,00,00,000 and sent to ITAK for the NPC election. Now under the instructions from anti-Saivaite Methodist preacher Sumanthira, he tries to mudsling on Wigneswaran,

      “Everyone including Sambandan know that Wigneswaran is a devotee of Premananda. So, why do they ask Wigneswaran to contest the election if worships a serial rapist. ” This is nothing for Sambandan who asked Tamil people to accept Prabakaran as their sole representative. Why can’t any Tamil who worshipped Prabakaran worship Premananda ? What is the problem?——-

    Mr Thangavelu did a regrettable mistake, trying to sling mud on CM and got that back on to himself. It’s okay he’s an atheist , no problem. He even solemnized his sons marriages only with the famous “Thirukkural” book of Thiruvalluvar. He’s such a modernized individual but doing this creepy scandalizing write up at his olden age is not an intelligent thing. His acceptance of his sons marrying a Philipino & an Indian are something great for such an ardent Jaffna Hindu. He has a wonderful family, children, grand children and he is a great patriot of Eelam but trying to degrade CM Wiggie is too much. He only degraded himself by writing this Tabloid stuff ! Can only feel sorry for him. Probably he’s aging and should stop writing anymore.

    I am very much in favour of “Billa’s” comment on Thangavelu. Thangavelu knows very well about Sambanthan, Sumanthiran, Mavai, and Sarawanapawan, and their unjustifiable conducts. These four are working against the Tamil population’s human rights on it’s own traditional home land. They try to hide the genocide done on Tamils, to please the Sinhala state, and to be on the good books of them. What for??? To keep Sambanthan as an opposition leader of Srilanka? Yes. Even Mahinda is support of him, being the opposition leader, even though he(Mahinda) has more members on his side. Both sides knows through Sambanthan they can get over the UN pressure. Sambanthan got the Tamils mandate(on false promises) and using it to defend Srilanka from outside pressure including UN, US, India and European union countries. This we are seeing openly and helplessly. Thangavelu is a very intelligent and experienced person to understand this serious damage these Sambanthan, Sumanthiran and co doing it to Tamils. Being the leader of ITAK in Canada, he should stop these people, and work to oust them from the party leadership. Instead he is vomiting venom on the person, who is exposing these politicians serious damages to the Tamil Nation and its people. By supporting to Sambanthan and co, he is also is culpable in destroying the future of Tamils.
    This is the reason for his harsh and venom writing against the Chief Minister Wickneswaran, to degrade him, by character assassination.

    To be fair to CVW, Mr. V Thangavelu used to once worship someone who was considered a Terrorist and mass murderer by both SL, India and IC and collected funds for that organisation as VP of World Tamil Movement, got prosecuted and then forfeited assets to save his a****.

    Similarly hundred of thousands of tamils worship god men/women who are considered to be molesters. Same applies to Baba where certain western countries warned their citizens to be wary of as per the following extract:

    Victims have told in harrowing detail how they were groped during private audiences and required to take part in sexual acts with the man they had trusted. So seriously were the claims taken that for many years the US government warned its citizens to stay away from the ashram because of the risk and UNESCO, the UN’s Educational, Social, and Cultural Organisation, pulled out of a conference at the ashram citing deep concerns about “widely-reported allegations of sexual abuse”.
    Sai Baba had dismissed the sex abuse allegations as false and described them as the “cawing of crows”. Telegraph UK

    There is a picture of the Sri Lankan Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa and his family members, whom Nakiran Thangavelu considers to be War criminals, paying obeisance at Sai Baba temple in Shirdi. Yep the same Baba black sheep millions of Tamils consider their god!
    Shri Shri Ravi Shanker and his outfit, Art of Living, too is the subject of very serious allegation and is also the subject of legal action over such matters. Just Google and you will find it.

    Contd- Therefore the proverb in English language “Show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are…”applies bloody well to Nkaira Thangavelu as well as million of other Tamils who worshipped/Worship all kinds of heroes and god men. Nikran’s own friends may be worshippers of these god men. And the TNA goons he worships todays were once worshipers of the “Sooriya Thevena” yes Sun god VP. Remember Lance Amermstrong the 7 times Tour De France Champion still is a god among despite he himself admitting taking drugs and engaging in blood doping!!!.

    For Nakira Velu anyone who is in opposition to his view needs to be assasinated. The outfit he headed extorted funds from Tamils and was the subject of an extensive investigation and an informative report by the Human Rights Watch called Funding the “Final War”

    Extracts from HRW

    The LTTE and groups linked to it such as the World Tamil Movement repeatedly call
    and visit Tamil families seeking funds. Some families have received as many as three
    visits in a single week. Fundraisers may refuse to leave the house without a pledge of
    money, and have told individuals who claim not to have funds available to borrow the
    money, to place contributions on their credit cards, or even to re-mortgage their homes

    The LTTE identifies Tamils from the West who return to Sri Lanka to visit family
    members, and systematically pressures them for funds when they arrive in LTTEcontrolled
    territory in the North of Sri Lanka. The assessed “rate” is often Cdn$1, £1, or
    €1 per day for the length of time they have lived in the West, so individuals who have
    been abroad for years may be asked for thousands, and told they may not leave until
    they produce the requested amount. In some cases, the LTTE may confiscate their
    passports until the money is paid.

    In most countries with a significant Tamil diaspora, Tamils established charitable
    organizations to raise funds for Tamil causes. These included the World Tamil
    Movement, British Tamil Association, and the Tamil Rehabilitation Organization,
    among others. Although the charities solicited funds to assist civilians affected by the
    war, numerous inquiries, including investigations by Canadian intelligence, have found
    that a significant amount of the funds raised were channeled to the LTTE for its military
    operations. The Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) concluded in 2000 that at
    least eight non-profit organizations and five companies were operating in Canada as
    fronts for the LTTE.
