Council Of Eelam Tamils Calls For A Boycott Of Tamil Leaders’ Conference In Delhi

The International Council of Eelam Tamils is calling for a boycott of the Sri Lankan Tamil Leaders’ Conference in New Delhi scheduled for this month. Convened by Congress Parliamentarian Sudarsana Natchiappan, the conference seeks to establish a permanent solution to the ongoing conflict by implementing the 13th amendment.

Krisna Saravanamuttu

“The 13th amendment and its parent the Indo-Lanka Accord of 1987 fails to deal with any core issues critical to the Tamil National Question. The Tamil Independence struggle received its democratic mandate from the Vaddukkodai declaration of 1976, and was reaffirmed in the Diaspora through global referenda in 2010.” says the ICET.

“The Tamil National Question cannot be resolved through the fundamentally flawed 13th amendment. Based on the democratic will of the Eelam Tamil Nation, we are calling for a boycott of the meeting because it does nothing to address the Tamil Nation’s core grievances,” said Krisna Saravanamuttu, spokesperson of the International Council of Eelam Tamils (ICET). “While condemning any proposal for a solution within the already limited 13th amendment, we call for a boycott of the meeting in New Delhi because it undermines the Tamil struggle for self-determination and sovereignty established through the Vaddukkodai referendums”

“In 2010 Tamils from around the world voted in referenda to either support or reject the principles of the Vaddukkodai declaration first established in 1976. Tamil Diaspora members supported the original mandate of the Vaddukkodai declaration and democratically re-established their national aspirations for independence.

“Tamils continue to be oppressed. This is a genocide-in-process, moving slowly but relentlessly, and with the steady support of major international powers. Until Tamils can freely articulate their national aspirations through a UN facilitated referendum, we will continue to uncompromisingly defend their right to self-determination and sovereignty. Our struggle for Tamil liberation is rooted in the democratic will of Eelam Tamils around the globe.

Even though the New Delhi conference seeks to lock Tamil leaders from the island, Tamil Nadu and the Diaspora into a unitary solution, the Diaspora voice is crucial in supporting the Tamil Liberation struggle in the face of military occupation, ethnic cleansing, and stolen lands. The ICET advocates for a permanent political settlement that establishes a sovereign Tamil Eelam through a UN referendum.“The insistence on the 13th amendment completely ignores the historic evidence of an explicit strategy to destroy the national existence of the Tamil nation in their homeland. We argue that justice and peace can best be established when the sovereign Tamil nation can exercise their right to self-determination. Any strategy to achieve this must recognize that the 13th amendment maintains the problematic unitary Sri Lankan state structure.” says the ITEC.

    You have no right to dictate to Tamil people living in Sri Lanka. Your hostile activities are hindering reconciliation and discussions with the Tamil parties.

    Use your extorted funds to buy an uninhabited island and call it Tamil Elam.

      For many, lobbying for tamils to have their eelam has become big business. All about money, thats all it is. How many demanding eelam will actually give up their lives in UK, Canada…….and return IF eelam is established. Not many for sure. All this agitating will never achieve anything for the tamils in SL…only make things more difficult for them. I wonder if SN knows the meaning of the word ‘genocide’?

        I support your proposal as long as the Tamils take their Sinhala/Buddhist brethren with them.

        The Tamils and Sinhalese can’t live with each other and can’t live without each other.

        Therefore it is not reasonable to keep the Sinhalese back in my ancestral land.

        Please let them go with the Tamils.

            LTTE wanted to grab part of my island.

            Sinhala/Buddhists on their way to grab my entire ancestral land.

            I am working hard to kick both the Tamils and Sinhala/Buddhists out of my ancestral land.

            By now you would have understood the difference between LTTE land grab and Sinhala/Buddhist land grab.

              No date has been fixed. However I can see a pattern of behaviour on the part of Tamils and Sinhalese, they are voluntarily leaving the island, by Kallathonies to various greener pastures.

              Let the population ease out which will make my job much much easier.

              If I start kicking both Kallathonies now there is a possibility/danger that both may unite and return my kicks back to me as they did just after riots against Muslim in 1915 and during IPKF time.

              I will benefit only when these two people are divided by their own stupidity. I am not in the business of uniting them hence let me sit tight for a while.

    Mr.Krisna. You have all the luxuries and privileges in Canada. But the poor ordinary Tamils do not have a same life like you. Your aspiration myth had created lot of problems to these ordinary Tamil people of Sri Lanka. If you need a Tamil land get it from Tamilnadu, the land of Tamil people. You do not have a legitimate, Historically, Geographically proof to say that SL North/East is a Tamil nation. As human we all do have aspirations, some can be fulfilled and some cannot. Kindly do not let poor Tamils to suffer for fulfilling your aspirations. Kindly noted that India will not except Tamil country in North/east. North will be another Palestine. So Kindly do not let poor Tamils for fight/sacrifices for your aspiration myth.

      “You do not have a legitimate, Historically, Geographically proof to say that SL North/East is a Tamil nation.”

      You need a bit of history lesson. http://my.telegraph.co.uk/richarddixons/

      Tamils and Sinhalease both have been there for more than two thousands years. They lived in two separate nations until they were brought together by the British during the 18th century.

      But it is important to look at some historic facts about Sri Lanka so that we know it is wrong for the Sri Lankan authorities to claim Sri lanka as a Sinhala Buddhist country by suppressing the Tamil minorities who are indeed the original inhabitants of this Nation.

      Firstly, there were no Buddhists in Sri Lanka before 200 BC because Buddhism was brought to Sri Lanka in 200 BC. There was no Sinhala language before 300 BC ,because Sinhala language was given birth at that time. Sinhala has around four thousands loan words from Tamil language, although this language originated from Brahmi script and have features of Bengali, Pali and Sanskrit. It is quite obvious that Sinhala was developed by people from different races including the Tamils.

      Logically speaking, there was no such community called “Sinhala Buddhists” in Sri Lanka before 200BC. But there were Tamils in Sri Lanka before there were Sinhala Buddhists.

      However, Many Sinhalese have Dravidian and Aboriginal features and these people are either the inhabitants of the country who were speaking Tamil or aboriginal languages or people migrated from the South Indian states.

      Some of the Sinhalese have ancestors from Bengal, Orissa and other North Indian states.Those Sinhalese with the fair complexion either have north Indian roots or they have European ancestors.

      Tamils in Sri Lanka can be grouped into three groups. Majority of them are the original inhabitants and some came to this country during the Chola invasions from India and the ones who work in the tea estates were brought in the 18th century.

      Sri Lanka was connected to India by a land mass before they were separated by water. It is highly likely that Dravidian Tamils and Aboriginal community lived in Sri Lanka for many thousands years.

      Nasa picture: Land mass connecting India and Sri Lanka, confirms the links between Aboriginal/Dravidian civilizations in both countries
      In summary Tamils, Sinhalease and Muslims who have Aboriginal and Dravidian roots are the original inhabitants of Sri Lanka.
      So this claim of making Sri Lanka as a Sinhala Buddhist country by suppressing the minorities is completely illogical, because Sinhala language and the Buddhist religion are relatively new to this country that has many thousands of years of history.

        NASA photo doesn’t show any bridge! It only shows a sand path. No one can walk on it!

        After the Chola invasion, no Tamil was left behind in SL. It was a very violent war. There was NO UNHRC, NO Navi Pillai, NO human rights.

        The Sinhala king after killing all the enemies, went to South India in search of Tamils!

        Don’t believe me? Just imagine there was NO UNHRC, NO Navi Pillai, NO human rights in 2009. What would have happened? In the past it was worse. Medieval times!

        The link for your history lesson is full of crap as what you have said. Refer to proper history rather than looking at rewitten history by LTTE nd their proxies. It is of no use to point out the LTTE brutality against tamils it self. We know as we experienced it first hand. Anyway your views are not a reflection of the normal tamil man who suffered due to the war.

          “H. A. J. Hulugalle, in his booklet ‘Information for Tourists, 1947’ says in the first paragraph on page one: “The Sinhalese are a mixed race, their language has been vastly enriched with words from the Tamil vocabulary.” Mudliyar W. F. Gunawardene says the Sinhala language is primarily a Dravidian language. The structural foundation of Sinhala is Dravidian while the super-structure is Aryan.”
          srilankaguardian.org/2013/01/origin-of-sinhala-language-and-sinhalese.html

          I consider these as facts. It does not mean that I hate Sinhalease or I am saying Sinhalease are bad people.

          But the Sinhalease govts have done lot of damage to the country and Tamils.

    Nachiappan’s proposed gig in Delhi and the visit of the BJP/RSS delegation visit to Colombo are all efforts at trying to undermine the growing sentiments of the Tamil Nation – currently gathering around the TNA, initially. Nachiappan apparently does not carry much punch even around the Sivaganga area where he foolishly took on Chidambaram.
    The BJP/RSS visit is possibly one arranged by that notorious Political Broker Subramaniam Swamy who does nothing for nothing.

    Seeking ‘Pattu Vetti’ and losing ‘Kovanam” will be the end result. Not that getting Pattu Vetti will be the solution.

    We have been living with the Sinhalese and the Muslims and others for a long time despite their genocidal behaviour of late. We need to negotiate our rights now that the ltte led stuggle has only served to make tamils a 3rd class citizens. Be careful of listing to any ltte rump like mr. rudrakumar and let tamils be led up the garden path for total annihilation.

      I like your metaphors and your general line of thinking. “Negotiate for our rights” is the right thing – but with whom? Rajapakse is scared of the JHU, Weerawansa and the Sinhala extremism. He or those close to him do not have the intellectual capacity to negotiate face to face with the TNA – where Sampanthan and Sumanthiran will submerge them. He finds every possible excuse to dodge the issue.

      Does the Singhala South recognise very soon will be the US$ to Rs.1,000 rupees parity – to start with. The richer Sinhalese count on their assets and their savings until the scourge is gone. It is time they fine-combed the economic wisdom of former Dy Governor CBSL Wijewardena and Chandra Jayaratne.

      But that will not happen. It is the road to Zimbabwe. Believe me, this is not what I wish. This is what is inevitable.

      that is a little extreme. If you have accusations, make sure they are realistic. Anyone who speaks on behalf of the natives of the north and east will be labeled as such by you but we can all try to be a little civilized by actualizing our abilities to be critical beings. So let’s try to be critical and mature. Especially if you are going to be using “Sri Lanka Watch” as your name. Don’t make Sri Lanka look foolish by using that name and posting laughable lines.

    It’s really hilarious how sinhalese people stalk the virtual sphere and bombard spaces with their repeated speeches, while accusing tamil folk of being repetitive. Hilarious. The north always belonged to ceylonese tamils. The south has always been Sinhalese. 2. State Terrorism has really taken aim at devaluing so called ‘terrorist’s’ narratives. Remember who labeled who terrorists and for what reason. 3. Sinhalese ppl’s actions: Illegally taking land, colonization of native areas and the continued emergence of non-native individuals into the North and East.

    anyways..i don’t have to keep going on, it is obvious that you are all delusional in regards to your antics. If you have anything critical to say… that is not a repetition of what state terrorists/extremists have said/fed you..it would be nice to hear. The Sinhalese extremists have long tried to mass murder Tamil people. They tried to get rid of our literature and culture. But the funny thing is, it still lives on. I mean…with one of the oldest languages in the world,and with the language going back to 1 BC (as confirmed in Egypt)…it is interesting how far jealousy can take a person or a group. Real solution would be to go back to how it was prior to the british rule. I guess the Sinhalese had more envy when the british ruled tamils as deserving …by giving them governmental jobs etc…and then the island becomes independent and then the south goes about trying to kill tamil people. History does not lie my friends.

    According to the history Dutch brought Tamils to Jaffna for their cultivation during 1796+. Before that there is no such evidence that Tamil race inhabited in Sri Lanka. Kindly let me know which part of India that Tamils were inhabited before 2000years back. Kindly provide a authentic source.
    Before Buddhism came to Sri Lanka there were Yaksha/Naga/deiva people in Sri Lanka. Are those people were Tamils?
    Was King Elara a Tamil?
    If North is a separated homeland and it was an independent state,
    1. Why the so called civilized Tamils only limited to North?
    2. Why majority of villages/rivers called Sinhala names. Eg. Gokanna. By foreign people like Pahiyan and etc.
    3. What is the reason to be Tamils limited to less than 10% population in Sri Lanka.
    4. If Tamils are more civilized and dominated than Sinhalese before 1000years back….compared to Sinhalese temples/rivers and etc. what are historical places/monuments that Tamils have in Jaffna?

    Q1 – Who was the first king of Jaffna /Tamils and Last King? What are the proofs to tell that they lived in two separate nations before Portuguese came? It is obvious to say during the Portuguese and British (1505-1945) period central power was marginalized due to the foreign threat. Are there any Tamils/Jaffna Kings fights regularly with these foreign enemies? How was the international trade in North during this particular period?

      Your knowledge of recent Lankan politics, I am afraid, is as confusing as your unusual name. It was Premadasa who came from Valathottam/Keselwatte. The Rajapakses came from far, far away in the deep South – where the late Premadasa used to go for R&R – an area which the younger Premadasa has been trying for long to establish as his political turf – with mixed results.

      Many will agree with you disorder can breakout if an acceptable solution to the Tamils is further delayed either by lack of resolve or sheer trickery. But that is probably what the ruling clique wants – to massacre the Tamils on the 2nd phase of 7/83 – a move that will bring them votes from the Sinhala South. But for how long? The region and the world has had enough of this barbarity and disorder. They may decide the fate of the vital shipping route close-by (80% of the worlds Contrainer traffic is expected to move in this route) is far too important and take action accordingly. That may make heroes of Karunanidhi and JJ. If that comes by the Rajapakses will go down as the family that brought the Sinhalese to dire straits in line with that song which is sung after a few drams of arakku “Sinhala jathiya
      ivara vage?” I am not wishing anything here. I am merely quoting what is around.

    Saravanamuttu is reorganizing LTTE under your noses. Pretending to be a student activist. He is influential with all LTTE groups in diaspora like the TYO, National Eelam Tamils Council in Canada, and Europe based ICTE. He is reorganizing LTTE International Political Wing. He will work under our nose and be responsible for resurgence of the terrorists with new face. Watch and see.
