Demolition Of Prabakaran Memorial In Tamil Nad

By C. Wijeyawickrema

 “We are helping Tamilnadu to achieve self-rule” –  V. Balakumaran, Advisor to Prabakaran, (Jan. 2006)

“There is no state without a Tamil, but there is no state for the Tamils.” – World Confederation of Tamils (2006) (www.tamilnation.org)

“If the Tamils’ cry for separatism is given up, the two communities could solve their problems and continue to live in amity and dignity” – M. C. Sansoni, former CJ (Sessional Paper No. 7 of 1980)

Introduction

The demolition of the Prabakaran-related memorial by the Indian government was an interesting news item on domestic Indian politics.  The Mullivaaikal Memorial was opened by P. Nedumaran, the President of the Ulaga Tamizhar Peramaippu (World Tamils Federation) at Vilar, village in Tanjore on 6th November 2013 after permission was granted by a judge of the Madras High Court. Separatist Tamils wish to have a Tamil country expanding from Sri Lanka to Tamil Nadu and beyond, and the use of force by the Indian government to oppose the World Tamil Federation’s action on the Indian soil must be an act of desperation on the part of the Delhi politicians. People in Sri Lanka must remember that Tamil Nadu separatism is part of the Balkanization of India plan which is beyond Wigneswaran’s or Mahinda Rajapakse’s control. The history of Tamil separatist movement is summarized below for the benefit of all parties concerned.

prabhaak gun colombotelegraphAs the Map 1 below indicates Tamil Nadu is facing Indian “harassment” (marked in red) from north, west and east and even from the south. Sri Lanka is like an oasis in this hostile climate as any number of separate meetings with Hilary Clinton or others cannot help Tamil Nadu to stop Indian pressure (for example to learn Hindi).

Separatist paradigm had been in existence in Tamil Nad since 1917.  It was temporarily transferred to Sri Lanka as DMK when it faced a mild ban in India under the 16th Indian Constitutional Amendment in 1963 which outlawed politicians or political parties promoting it. Nehru suddenly got the wake up call by the sudden electoral gains by DMK in 1962. Nehru gathered political courage to fight against the Tamil separatist agenda with the nationalism surge after the Chinese captured Indian border regions in 1962.  But after 1963, the “independence movement” changed from anti-India to an anti-Hindi campaign.

There was also no shift in the thinking pattern of the small Tamil separatist cell in Sri Lanka operating from Colombo since the separatist fever reached Ceylon in 1918 from Tamil Nadu. With the governor Manning actively behind it during 1921-24, this became an official fever via a concept of “balanced representation” supported by both Tamil and Sinhala Colombo politicians (ref. Communalism and language in the politics

of Ceylon, by Robert Kearney, 1967, page 37). In 1928 and in 1944 two royal commissions rejected it but it was resurrected in 1949 as the Tamil state party (ITAK).

In a way the 1956 Sinhala Only (with Reasonable use of Tamil Language Act of 1958) Act was a reaction to Tamil separatist politics by the Colombo-living Tamil politicians who copied unfairly the separatist agitation in Tamil Nad. While in Tamil Nadu it was anti-Brahmin and anti-Hindi in Ceylon it was dominated by Tamil Christians. Thus in July 1947, SJV Chelvanayagam proposed merger of Tamil Nad and Tamil state in Ceylon. In November 1947, Chelvanayagam’s speech at Trincomalee promised “to snatch Trincomalee from the Sinhala enemies and deliver it to Nehru for India’s security if Nehru so asked.” The famous Malyalee Indian diplomat K. M. Panikkar once said Trincomalee is India’s jewel.

Ravana versus Ramayana

The two separatist rivers in Ceylon and Tamil Nadu ran parallel mingling with each other until 1963 when an amendment to the Indian constitution made it a criminal act to talk about separatism by politicians (not by others such as writers). Then the poison water was transferred to Lanka and after 1978 (beginning of JRJ-IndiraG family feud) it was the Lanka river that rejuvenated the Tamilnadu river. In the late 1950s the poison water in Tamilnadu was sprayed on the walls with a Dravida Kazagham proverb, “When you meet a Brahmin and a snake, kill the Brahmin first.”

CWFor the Lankan river and the Tamilnadu masses the Tamil separatist master E.V. Ramaswamy Naicker twisted the Rama-Ravana story in the Hindu epic Maha Bharatha so that Shivaji Ganeshan and MG Ramachandran (born in Kandy) were able to act as folk hero-Tamil Ravana in low-budget movies watched in Madras, Jaffna and Dehiwala as well as in Indian estate worker line-towns such as Hatton.  Naicker concluded, “Rama and Sita are despicable characters…Ravana, on the other hand, is a Dravidian of excellent character.” The “boys” in Sri Lanka with their Chola empire symbols are thus good Ravanas in the eyes of an average Tamil Nadu Tamil. There are about 30 Ravana-Seetha sites identified in Sri Lanka.

Chronology of the Separatist Paradigm (Dravidasthan)

E. V. Ramaswamy Naicker, born in 1879, married at the age of 13, became a sannyasi 6 years later, started the Dravidian Federation (DK) party in 1944, as a militant (DK members wear black shirts), anti religious (philosophy of Hinduism is false and an opiate), anti-Sanskrit (need to de-Sanskritize Tamil language, Ramayanaya is false, destroy the images of sacred Hindu deities such as Rama and Ganesha) movement. The selection of a poison flower and a cyanide pill by Tamil separatists in Northern Sri Lanka is thus not hard to understand (ref. chapter10: Religion, politics and the DMK by Robert L. Hardgrave in South Asia Politics and Religion, edited by Donald E. Smith,1966).

(A) 1917-1963 (legal phase)

  1. 1917 August – South India Liberation Front founded (Justice Party) It was then anti-Brahmin not anti-Hindi (power of Tamil Nadu was in the hands of the Brahmin 2%)

1921-1924 – Agreement in Ceylon between Tamil and Sinhala politicians for a ratio of 1 Tamil for 2 Sinhala representatives

  1. 1925 – Self-Respect Movement began
  2.  1931 – Naicker’s trip to Russia

1936-1937 – Balanced representation (fifty-fifty) demand by GG Ponnambalam (a Christian) in Ceylon.

  1. 1937 – Hindi introduced as a compulsory subject in schools (Rajagopalachari of the Congress Party was in control) Anti-Hindi campaign began, Hindi language changed to an optional subject
  1. 1938 December – Justice Party Convention asked for a separate Tamilnad operating directly under London
  1. 1939 – Dravida Nadu Conference asked for a separate and independent Dravidasthan
  1. 1940 – Muslims League’s Lahore resolution demanding a Pakistan, mutual support for separate states

1940s – C. Sundaralingam, MP for Vavniya spoke of a Tamil state in Northern and Eastern Provinces in Ceylon.

  1. 1944 – Justice Party reorganized as DK- Dravida Federation (remained a quasi- military organization).

1944 –1945 – Soulbury Commission rejected discrimination complaint by GG Ponnambalam.

  1. 1947 – Jinna refused to help Naicker to help create a Dravidasthan

July 1947 – SJV Chelvanayagam proposed merger of Tamil Nad and Tamil state in Ceylon.

Nov 1947 – Chelvanayagam’s speech at Trincomalee; promised to snatch Trincomalee from the Sinhala enemies and deliver it to Nehru for India’s security if Nehru so asked.

  1. 1949 – DMK formed by C. N. Annadurai. Reasons: Naicker was a dictator, had no faith in democracy, refused to honor the national flag, boycotted independence day celebrations, rejected Indian constitution; married a 28 year old girl when he was 72 and made her heir to the party leadership.

Dec. 1949 – Tamil state party (ITAK) was formed in Ceylon by SJV Chelvanayagam wowing for a separate Tamil state.

  1. 1952 Indian General Election. Anna said DMK was “genuinely communist.” burned Hindi books, painted tar over Hindi signs, burned the flag, burned pictures of Gandhi. (DMK has a tribal mentality-Nehru) Independence demand at the election
  1. 1955 – Hindi became the National (official) language of India
  2. 1956 – Reorganization of states on language basis (Naicker abandoned Dravidasthan goal to a smaller Tamilnadu separatism goal)
  1. 1957 Tamilnadu election – Independence demand
  2. 1962 – DMK Election manifesto (long-range goal was the creation of a Dravidasthan Socialist Federation) Independence demand Kamraj of the Congress Party won but DMK won 50 seats in the state legislature. In Feb. 1962 Kamraj changed the state name from Madras to Tamilnad. He wanted Madurai (Pandyan capital) as state capital.
  1. 1963 – Separatism proscribed from Indian politics (not from people or writers)

(B) 1963-mid 1980s (illegal phase)

The unexpected War with China in 1962 gave Nehru an opportunity to ban Tamil separatism using “protect the motherland national feelings.” No room in India for any anti-Indian talks. The separatist movement had to be moved to Jaffna to the Ravanas of Naicker. It went back to India after 1978 (JRJ-IndiraG cow and calf family feud) and got an open foothold after 1983 Tamil killings in Colombo. Had a set back with the killing of Rajiv G in May 1991.

  1. 2013 Nov – Manmohan Singh succumbed to Tamil Nad pressure and decided not to attend CHOGM
  2. 2013 NOV-  Prabakaran-related memorial demolished in Tamil Nad

Tamil Nadu geopolitics

CWTamil Nadu is the only Indian state to oppose Hindi as a unifying language. In Punjab, where there was a civil war against Delhi, Hindi is accepted with Panjaabi taking a second place in public schools There are several popular websites promoting separatism and attacking the “Hindian” homeland in India as opposed to a Tamil homeland. Despite laws in the book, the power of separatist writers was so penetrating that Rajiv Gandhi once made a personal appeal to a writer to stop writing!  Tamilnad mind of a Tamil Ravana from Lanka is not easy to erase. The anger fueled by separatist Tamil politicians against Delhi as exploitation of Tamils by Hindi rulers is conveniently directed at the Sinhala Buddhists killers, with what Prabakaran calls, a Mahavamsa mindset.

It is true that no one Indian state can face the Indian military Goliath but the Delhi rulers know that a new political reality of “coalition governments” has come to stay. The Tamil vote block is more powerful than the political power needed to use Direct Presidential Rule. It (Article 356) can be imposed now only if state politicians (in the opposition) want Delhi to use against their local rivals (chief minister). The present game of alternatively DMK jailing AIADMK boss and AIADMK jailing DMK boss, with the Indian Supreme Court caught in between has given a little breathing room to Delhi, but such DMK-AIADMK nonsense will vanish if Prabakaran as Ravana is in power in an Eelam. There are other minor political parties in Tamilnadu (TMC, PMK, MDMK) who act as Prabakaran’s proxies.

India’s Palestine Wall

Perhaps, this is why Delhi thought of a new solution: the Sethusamuduram Canal has suddenly become India’s Palestine Wall to cutoff Valvetithurai from Chennai.

With the Tamil Nad voting block gaining influence in Delhi, two central government projects came to Tamil Nad as if there is a plan to cutoff the mingling of two separatist rivers—separatists in Tamilnadu and Sri Lanka’s north—Sethu Samuduram Canal Project and the mega Kanya Kumari nuclear power plant. Gwynne Dyer (Island, Feb. 15, 2007) gave a list of world walls. For example, Pakistan is building a 1,500-mile fence along Afghanistan border. Since Tamil terrorists converted the sea border between India and Sri Lanka a terrorist super highway, the Delhi government may be planning to use the two federal projects as “India’s Palestine Wall’ in the south.

Tamil language faces pressure from its landward neighbors Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam and from the Hindi official language department in Delhi. The Hindi official language department is moving slowly with annual progress reports. The Pondicherry model is another pain in the neck, forced upon Tamil Nad. Additionally, those federal water transfer projects come with the federal muscle. With such pressure Lanka to the south is a trouble-free fertile valley full of Ravana attractions such as Trincomalee and Seetha Eliya and Ravana Ella and 30 other identified sites.

A Tamil “F” in Sri Lanka will rekindle the fire beneath the surface. Chamberlain thought Hitler had only a limited hunger. A language-based “F” state is a growing monster. It needs more room. It cannot grow landward in India. But it can come southward via the shallow seas and become the Dravidasthan first demanded directly from London in December 1938 by the Justice Party of Naiker. Two caste groups in Tamil Nad are demanding two separate states within its boundaries! (PMK leader S. Rmados is demanding one for the Vanniyar castes; as a reaction to this the Dalits are demanding a separate state for them. So there will be three states instead of one Tamil Nad!  Tamil Nad politicians can postpone or re-direct such domestic divisive demands by instigating separatist agitation inside Sri Lanka.

    In India, THELUGU – another Dravidean language, is the second most spoken after Hindi. Only in India and Sri Lanka, they are anti-Hindi, anti-Hindu, anti-Sinhala and want their own. Why other South Indians don’t feel the same inferiority as Tamils feel ?

    Tamils when moved to any other country learn as fast as they can the majority language in the newly naturalized country and do that countries menial jobs which the majority won’t and don’t do. See, how Norwegians gave up their fisherman-life when they became rich after finding oil. Now, Tamils moved their after 1983, speak Norwegian very well and have taken over the fishing sector in Norway.

      No wonder Tamils in Canada, UK, Norway, US, Fiji S.Africa are angry and militant as they are treated like coolies! But is it fair to blame Sri Lanka and treat Sri Lanka as a scape goat for their self inflicted misery? It was the English who brought the Tamils to Lanka to work as coolies, live in sub human conditions, beat them up and rape the young Tamil girls. but Tamils blame the Sinhalese and not the English! There should be an Indepedent International Tribunal to make England pay compensation to Tamils and Sri Lanka and thereby speed up the development projects initiated by the Sri Lankan government.

        Revisionist history by you; Tamils were in Ceylon long before the British even stepped foot in South Asia.
        Tamil fisherfolk communities would have been in Ceylon before your founder Vijaya came to Ceylon 2500 years ago because South India was already Dravidian speaking back then.

          YES, SIKHS/KHALISTAN, KASHMIR, BIHAR, NAGALAND & MANY EASTERN STATES DO NOT WANT TO SEPERATE FROM INDIA.

          ONLY THE SHUDRA SERFS OF TAMIL NADU WERE OPPOSED TO THE TRADITIONAL ELITE BRAHMINS.

          DEFINITELY, THE FAIR SKINNED NORTH INDIAN HERDSMEN (of the Iranian & Eurasian plateau) KNEW ABOUT THE ISLAND COUNTRY WELL BEFORE THE NEIGHBOURING DARK SKINNED SOUTH INDIANS AND WITHOUT THEIR HELP SAILED HERE.

          AS CAN BE SEEN FROM THE TRUTHFUL, KIND AND EDUCATED COMMENTERS (FAIR-SKINS), ABILITY IS DEFINETELY DICTATED BY THE WHITE GENE.

          THIS IS WHY IT IS THE WHITE MAN’S WORLD & WE ARE THE LESSER ONES.
          TAKE A LOOK AT CHOGM, IT THE QUEEN AT THE HEAD (AND WE LOVE TO HOLD IT).

          YES, THESE STUPID TAMILS WANTING THEIR OWN LANGUAGE IS LIKE US WANTING SINHALA OVER ENGLISH…..AND OVER THE INDEGENOUS VADDHA ELU (similar to EELAM!!!)

          IT WAS THE TAMIL, RAJPUT & SIKH KINGDOMS THAT MANAGED TO RESIST BEING SERFS TO THE MOUGHAL MUSLIMS. THIS MAY HAVE GONE TO THEIR HEADS.

          INTERESTINGLY, THE TELUGU SCRIPT IS THE CLOSEST TO THE SINHALA SCRIPT.

          Like the Dalits and many of our ancestors the way out for these Tamils may be to adopt Buddhism.

Let alone the Tamils and worry about your family you dirty inbred. Sinhalese came from Orissa after they were deported by Tamil Kings who ruled most of Modern India at that era. Sinhala history has everything to do with licking their Colonial Master’s back side to get in power. I would har hanged myself if I was born a Sinhalese. But Im a proud Tamil and proud of Hon.

      Tamils are STATELESS people.

      They only do servant work for other countries like India, SL, Malaysia, Canada, etc.

      Doesn’t that speak volumes?

      Tamils don’t deserve a nation.

      Now 50,000 Tamil tax payers in Australia pay for 2 gun boats for the genocidal SL navy. This is what happens when Tamils don’t have a nation of their own.

    Prabaharan’s or the LTTE leaders’ memorial should be demolished wherever it is found whether it is in the Vanni or Vilar. However, I believe the rest of the memorial will not be removed by the Indian govt in Vilar.

    Mullivaikal Muttram in Vilar should stand for many centuries to illustrate how the thousands of innocent Tamil women, children, infirm, elderly and surrendered fighters were abused, tortured, raped and murdered by the Rajapakse regime.

        Banda, you are utterly confused. You have made, quite rightly, a list of atrocities committed by the LTTE, but you are turning a blind eye to the horrendous atrocities committed by SL regime on innocent Tamils. War crime is a war crime whether it’s committed by Rajapakse or Prabaharan and these merderous criminals should be accountable for what they had committed.

        If you want to build a memorial for the people you have listed of course you will have my full support.

          Killing Tamils cannot be justified at any cost because LTTE did not fight for the Tamils. Tell us why LTTE built luxury Condos in Colombo! Did Prabhakaran wanted a retirement life in Colombo?

      That’s right and what about the 300,000 thousand they rescued and fed and clothed, educated… And those 11,000 poor LTTE cadres who surrendered and were given training in new professions, released and give access to loans to start up new businesses. Awh, such a terrible government Sri Lanka has!!! The worst thing is that they were allowed to hold an election and choose their own local leader in the Northern Provence. Where is world coming too. They should have been given the freedom to go back and continue the fight so that many more civilians could willingly go to the front line and loose their lives, either by opposing powerfire or ‘friendly’ fire from behind kindly encouraging them not to surrender and fight to the death. YES, that is how things should have been allowed to go in a true Democracy. Can’t you all see how utterly stupid your pride is!!!!

    The title of this article is rather deceptive, only a wall has been demolished

    P Nedumaran, president of Ulaga Thamizhar Peramaippu announced that the police and highways department officials demolished the compound wall of the Mullivaikkal Memorial (Mullivaikkal Ninaivu Mutram) in the early hours of this morning. He said,

    “The police came to the memorial armed with bulldozers and fenced the memorial area which contained the park and lawns with wire mesh. They also installed two boards stating the area belonged to Highways department and later started demolishing it”.

    Before even writing an article, cant you get the minimum facts.

    1)As Safa highlighted, they demolished only the compound wall which lies in state highways, and it was the state government that demolished the walls. There is nothing like Newdelhi or central government initiated it.

    2)Periyar neither advocated for Hidnhi nor for Tamil, He just wanted only one language for entire India that is English. He wanted only english as a national language and never been vocal to desnaskritize the tamil.

      GGP became a HINDU after the return from UK. GGP’s own brother was a catholic priest. At that time Christian dominated jaffna was furious over his conversion. That was one of the reason for SJV Selvanayakam to split from him when DS Senanayke refused to give a ministry to SJVS.

    my comments to this article is there is so many angles the indian line can be drawn towards south india, the fact is tamils have been in Sri Lanka much longer than in Europe, Australia, USA.

    Tamils have immigrated to these countries recently and don’t know if they feel integrated.
    Tamils have chosen the jobs available and according to there skills, supply and demand. I have meet Sri Lankans all around the world, arabic countries, europe and US. The majority of Sri Lankans who are doing basic skilled work are not only tamils from Sri Lanka.

    Tamils can compared to other societies, some can choose to think parallel to africans, from special parts of Africa who were taken to work as basic skill people to US as slaves because they were physically strong and survived the long sea trip to America. The same parallel can be drawn to tamils who went to work in up Country.

    This line of examining will be called racial theory and supremacy between races, the modern theory is based on equality and all humans are equal.

    Delhi, Tamilnadu and Colombo all may talk about geopolitics, but at the end if the people who live in the area are it concern, are they feeling safe?, content?, are they being treated well ?, do they see a future in the area they live?

    People have been moving earlier and will move in the future aswell..

    Sinhalese got the power to the land through their colonial masters by wagging their tail and eating their left overs. Now the Sinhalese say its their land and others have come from overseas. You know what would the Sinhalese been doing if Srilanka had not been invaded by the Portuguese or the Brits? [Edited out]

    Australia to give Sri Lanka two patrol boats to curb human smuggling

    Excellent!

    The BEST OUTCOME of CHOGM. This is the only thing worthwhile in CHOGM.

    SL spent $3 million and gained back $3 million so the net loss is $0!!

    So who won this round too? SLs.
    Who lost this time too? Tamils.

    Now the genocidal SL state has 2 more Tamil killing warships thanks to CHOGM paid by 50,000 modaya Tamil taxpayers in Australia!! :)

    1. If readers point out any fact in the essay was incorrect I will make the changes with gratitude.
    2. If GGP was not a Christian how come his son and grandson Colombo-living Christians?
    3. The map is not upside down. It is drawn as if one is looking south from south India. When one is used to look Sri Lanka below India this map gives a different perspective.
    4. I forgot to add two items to the historical summary
    A. Jayalalitha’s demand to get Kachchativ back
    B. Tamil Nadu fishermen robbing Sri Lanka fish.

    5. Facts for this essay were taken from a book written by white American professors.

      The article is plain wrong! After all you should refer Tamil nadu books and not from an american to write this!

      First of all, Dravida nadu demand was never ever violent! It was a ploy of DMK to oust congress from state power and even Tamil nadu people or leader never supported it…nor ever will!

      Why? The reason is very simple….In India, constitution is federal.States have all powers. Only certain things are decided. And, politicians know if they do wrong, they will get defeated! Media and Judiciary is as good as western countries…they skin politicians alive.

      Also, It is not only tamil nadu opposed Hindi, but also other states! Even bengal opposed it. Also When Hindi wanted to replace English, All states resisted…So a guarantee was given that Hindi would not be imposed at all….Also Hindi is “NOT NATIONAL Language” but only a official language. There are 18 languages dear! So all gets a chance to study, work and live without ever have to learn Hindi.

      So your article is without any ground reality…! India will break, or any country only if economically they are affected…In India, that is far distant.

      So India is long runner and certainly more stable than china. That is for sure!

      This race issues are thorny! Sinhalese and Tamils are from same stock. Searching for Identity in Bihar, Bengal, Orissa or Gujarat is merely waste of time….If I follow Islam , I can’t become arab.

    The article is plain wrong! First of all,only the wall is demolished and not the architecture. IT IS NOT DONE BY TAMIL NADU OR JAYALALITHA. It is done by national highways because the wall is in its property! So, it is great to see that the institutions are independent and doing its job.

    Also, Tamil nadu governement or Indian government can’t demolish as it is a private property and not governments. No body dares to disrupt private property in India. Certainly, Indian government can’t do and certainly won’t do as elections are nearby!

    The fact is Sonia is driven by personal agenda. her husband killed by LTTE. Once Srilanka government did that, Sonia washed her hands off…If Srilanka thinks, India would support them….sorry. Indian tamils are voting in Indian elections and not sinhalese!

    Calm down people,

    It is beyond me how all we people can function within such limiting parameters. Race, cast, language, religion are all conditioning factors – meaning that it contracts intellectual capacities. Is this the meaning of life for all us people, be we Sinhala, Tamil or Muslim.

    Break out of the dark cloaks of bias we have enveloped ourselves with and we will see there is a whole universe out there that does not discriminate using any yardstick that we place so much emphasis on. The same sun shines on each of us and it is the same moon that brightens the sky at night. We all need to eat food to sustain us and we procreate by union with the opposite sex. Same, same same.

    Yet we choose to go mad with hatred and render each other apart not resting till we have drawn blood.

    What a mad beast the human is.
