Don’t Meet Wigneswaran Until He Says ‘Sorry’ To TN Tamils: Tamils For Obama Urges Jeyalalithaa

Tamils for Obama wrote a letter to Chief Minister Jayalalithaa of Tamil Nadu urging her not to meet with C.V Wigneswaran at least until he apologizes to the people of Tamil Nadu.

Wigneswaran

Tamils for Obama wrote a letter to Chief Minister Jeyalalithaa of Tamil Nadu in which they warned her to be cautious in dealing with Wigneswaran.

“We think we know what he is trying to do,” said a spokesman for the diaspora Tamil group. “Besides trying to get some of her prestige to stick to him, he wants her to become more sympathetic to the Colombo view of a united Sri Lanka, a view he supports.”

The letter to CM Jeyalalithaa said “We expect that Mr. Wigneswaran, who might soon be CM of the northern province of Sri Lanka, will try to persuade you to abandon your support of an international tribunal looking into GOSL war crimes during the recent civil war. He will also probably do anything he can to advance the cause of a united Sri Lanka with no special homeland for the Tamils in the northeast.”

The letter continues “A recent election showed that Tamils in the northern province are angry and want no part of the current status quo in SL. Mr. Wigneswaran interprets this as meaning that they want a united Sri Lanka without any interference from outsiders, including diaspora Tamils and Tamil Nadu voices.

“We disagree, We believe that northeast Tamils reject the status quo because they live in fear of the armed forces and paramilitaries who are their close neighbors and who regularly cause them pain and suffering. We think northeastern Tamils want a safe and secure homeland where they can be proud of themselves and take part in their own government.”

The letter noted that Wigneswaran has frequently and publicly said that diaspora Tamils and Tamil Nadu Tamils should stay out of matters that (he thinks) only concern SL Tamils. “We think he is wrong. Tamil Nadu Tamils have done much to publicize the suffering and injustice endured by Tamils in northeastern Sri Lanka. The voices of these cousins of ours have raised awareness and sympathy among non-Tamils, and by doing this they have made our oppressors in Sri Lanka more cautious in carrying out their ethnic cleansing. We should be grateful for their help.” said the Tamils for Obama.

Wigneswaran most recently said this in interviews with Hindustan Times (Sri Lankan issue being used by TN for political gains, says Justice CV Wigneswaran, July 19, 2013) and The Hindu (TN politicians exploiting Lankan Tamils issue: C.V. Wigneswaran, September 13, 2013), the spokesman pointed out.

“We urge you, Ms. Jayalalithaa, not to meet with Mr. Wigneswaran,” Tamils for Obama wrote in their letter, “until he has at least apologized to the TN Tamils on this matter.” said Tamils for Obama.

    These Tamils are bigger idiots than I thought. When someone makes some gains, the others try their best to destroy those gains. No wonder they produced the likes of KP, Karuna, DD, KP and others who will even betray their people for a some financial gain. Bury your differences and work together for the common good or forever be second class people because that is what you deserve.

    Tamils for Obama should change their name to Fools for Obama. Keep writing letters that’s all they can do. No body reads them. Hey now that your TGTE election is coming why not change your name to Tamils for Rubama or Tamils for Mama or Mamy

    Justice Wigneswaran was a good judge, proved his capabilities when he was based in Colombo. Let him assume duties as North CM and at least complete one term in office, then we can appraise his performance, now it is too early. We hope he will do something -in an interview he said there are 60,000 widows in the North -, he must be having some good intentions – just imagine this number of widows in the North alone, every Sri Lankan should feel for these unfortunate situation.

    This Tamils for Obama organization is creating lots of problems for Tamils by telling lies.Vickneswaran had never said anywhere he does not want Kingdom of Jaffna given back to the Tamils.In fact he was insisting on Self-Determination for Tamils.Then how can these people speak like this.When he speaks inside Sri Lanka he cannot talk about Kingdom Of Jaffna as the Govt. can arrest him and torture him.
