India To Back International Probe Into SL War Crimes: Report

Dealing a heavy blow to Sri Lanka’s international battle, India’s Congress-led government will support an international investigation into Sri Lanka’s alleged war crimes to win Tamil votes in April’s general election, a report in the UK Telegraph newspaper announced today.

Quoting Government sources in New Delhi, the report said India’s decision to add its weight to a campaign led by Britain and the United States will be a serious blow to Mahinda Rajapaksa, the Sri Lankan president, whose government has traditionally had strong ties with India.

“As the biggest regional power, India’s support will also increase the likelihood that next month’s United Nations Human Rights Committee meeting in Geneva will pass a resolution calling for an international investigation,” the Telegraph said.

The report said that while the Indian government has so far remained non-committal as Britain and other supporters have lobbied officials, but privately they say the government is likely to support the resolution to keep its Indian Tamil allies on board for its general election in April-May.

The Telegraph said that Indian officials are now waiting to receive the draft proposal drawn up by the UN’s Human Rights Commissioner Navi Pillay, but they say “political considerations” rather than concerns over its relationship with Colombo will determine the government’s stand.

“The decision will be made in the midst of an election campaign, so political considerations will play a key role,” a government source said on Wednesday.

    No surprises there. India can blackmail Rajapakshe using the international investigation to create a new, puppet, self governing authority in north and control Sri Lanka using it.

      Is it ok for SL to blackmail India? When Lalith Weeratunga raised the Kashmir issue in his US briefings, what was he thinking? Pakistan has been on the edge with India since independence days and nothing has shaken of the Indian grip on Kashmir. A tiny minion like SL should know its place.

      I Lanka, the according to interpreted Native Veddah terminology, the Sinhaa and Tamils are referred to as Para-Sinhala and Para-Demala.

      So, the Indians are playing the Tamil Nadu Appeasement Game of the Para-Demalas, the para-deshis, the foreigners.

      In Sri Lanka, the Para-Sinhala Mahanama Buddists are using the Mahanama Buddhists to get their Para-Sinhala racism advanced.

        Why doesn’t Sri Lanka counter the ‘Final Three Days of the War’ with “The Thirty Years of LTTE Terrorism” before that.

      You idiot Manisekaran,if you are really concerned about the poor SL Tamils,ask your bitch Jayalalitha to treat the Tamil refugees as human beings.
      -Let J make arrangements for the free movement of the refugees in the TN camps.
      -Let J make arrangements to treat the Tamil refugees equally like TN tamils.

        The kind of language you use shows your state of mind from your association with “duckananda”. Let me answer you, I dont mid people answering in the langauage that they understand
        1) Refugee management is central subject, inspite several requests from TN govt, it is central government who imposed the restriction on Refugee movement. I am surprised when you question on a foreign government about freedom, what were you doing when people were fenced? F***king self?
        2)When people lived in shack during monsoon, were you pimping? and not questioning your government?
        3)If people of TN lived luxury life and ill-treated the refugees, you can accuse, except for the last decade, Tamils of TN were also living in abject poverty, yet they shared what they can; Moreover when growth is witnessed in TN, accordingly the share also raised to refugees in TN, would you know most of the refugees are well edcuated? It is Indian government refuses the refugee to atke job opportunity inspite TN government insisting them to allow.

        Have time to read the below before accusing and pimping yourself next time

            Manisekaran

            Don’t tell us “refugee management is a central subject.” We know how the centre/region relations have become a joke in India, especially under Manmohan Singh’s spineless and unprincipled government. Now the regional tails are wagging the dog with regard to India’s foreign policy – in particular its relations with Sri Lanka.

            The problem is people like you only use the Tamil issue in Sri Lanka to make profit and promote yourself rather than honestly address the problem. You knowingly exaggerate and misinterpret the situation in order to incite violence in Tamil Nadu. What you are doing is hate mongering and racist propaganda. That is why you get mad when your hypocrisy is exposed by revealing how you treat Sri Lankan Tamil refugees in the hell hole known as Tamil Nadu.

            Your hypocrisy is further revealed by your total lack of concern about the situation of the vast majority of Tamil Nadu Tamils themselves who are living in abject poverty in inhuman conditions. There is widespread violation of human rights under the prevailing system of caste oppression and patriarchy. I don’t have to spell out the daily violence against the Dalits and women in Tamil Nadu. You still practice medieval customs such as child marriage and female infanticide. First help emancipate women from slavery and protect them from rape by Tamil men both inside and outside their homes. Tamil Nadu politics stinks with the worst corruption even by Indian standards. Your criminal justice system itself is criminal: Police brutally attacking innocent people and raping women going to complain is a common occurrence.

            India as a whole has one of the worst political cultures in the world, and Tamil Nadu is the prime example of that. Can a depraved person like Jayalalitha ever become a political leader, let alone a CM, in any other society? She is the most shamelessly vile woman you can ever come across, totally without class, conscience or basic human decency. She is a political whore, no two words about it. She will stoop down to any level to get what she wants, the way she did with MGR. What can be more dirty-dealing and whoring than her current support of the LTTE rump and the Tamil Nadu racists to boost her cheap popularity. She was disparaged as a whore and put on the death list by the Tigers not too long ago. What a shame to Tamil Nadu.

            Overall the Tamils in Sri Lanka – even after all what they have gone through – enjoy a much higher standard of living and social justice than the average person in Tamil Nadu. They are better educated and have access to better social services. The caste system and discrimination against women, and other marginalized Tamils is less severe. In short the Tamils in Sri Lanka live in a more open and civilized environment than the Tamils of Tamil Nadu who are still struggling to free themselves from a medieval mindset and its oppressive institutions.

          You Tiger pimp, why were you silent when Prabhakaran was killing the Tamil people and their democratic leaders? Where were you when he was recruiting children forcibly and brainwashing them into killers and rapists. Were you F***ing self when the war criminal Prabhakaran was trapping Tamil civilians and fenced them in as human shield, not allowing them to escape even when the government declared ceasefire from time to time, and in fact killing them when they attempted to do so. What were you doing when the cowardly Tigers took cover in refugee camps, schools and hospitals and fired at the enemy to provoke retaliatory attacks on those humanitarian centres. Were you pimping for alcohol and women in Tamil Nadu like your leaders do? You idiot it is the Sri Lankan forces that finally liberated the Tamil hostages from the deadly grip of the most ruthless fascist LTTE. And you moron don’t try to bullshit about how Delhi formulates its policy. It is all a matter of bending backwards to the regional governments to cling to power at the centre. India today is F***ing Joke.

        Those refugee camps of Sri Lankans are now the hunting grounds for the Tamil nadu hooligans too. They rape, and kill many women in those camps. In some camps the “Q” Branch police men run brothels also with the support of the bitch Jayalalitha.

      This is the great evidence for the progress that have been made in external affairs under MR has been improved to this day.

      They the regime are masters to manipulate locals for their voter base, but failed to win the hearts of neighbouring big brother – this makes it further clear that MR administration is a failure and will never achieve and kind of sustainable peace towards tamil problems.

    Sonia supported the regime at all cost as she wanted VP dead at any cost (i.e any cost to Tamil Civilians, any cost to Inida in terms of military aid) she supported Mahinda/Gota axis and got her revenge on VP. She has no use of Mahinda/Gota Axis anymore.

    Her congress party is in a dire situation in the forth coming elections. Now she want to play the Tamil card and use it for political advantage. The suspects of Rajiv’s murder were pardon from capital punishment. Jaya jumped on the bandwagon and upsatged Sonia and released all suspects from jail.

    The Rajiv Ghandhi factor is now history, his killing is now history, the suspects are now freed. Mahinda cant play Rajiv Ghandhi card any more.

    The Sri Lankan Tamil issue is now the hot political agenda. Gandhis, Modis, Jaya, Kallaingar all want to play that card.

    The tide has turned for Mahinda for the worse.

    Who cares about the intentions of the Indian government as long as it supports the UNHRC resolution against the Rajapaksa regime that would lead to justice for the tamils of Sri Lanka.

    The Rajapaksa regime is a curse on Sri lanka and its people and his fall will be welcomed by all who love their country.

    This is one issue the Rajapakses must handle extra-carefully, in their own interest. Assuming India votes supporting the US Resolution coming March, Rajapakses should not run like chicken with their heads cut – raising issues to enrage Delhi. They must make sure no Indian assets or people are harmed by their street thugs or crazed mullahs. Already known Rajapakse acolytes are foolishly upping the ante referring to the old IPKF wound, Kashmir and the like. Rajapakses are not strong enough to take on several powerful global opponents simultaneously. They must remember the advise of Salman Khurshid not to quarrel with everyone around. The other side knows details of every cent of stolen Rajapakse loot hidden – where, how much etc., Already the EU is considering travel bans, bank freezes of some Ukraine leaders for carrying out shooting attacks on demonstrators in the streets of Kiev.
    MR is far less foolish than the Kehelwatte chandiya to make the same mistakes. There is a limit to what even the new friends, Israel, can do for the tottering regime.

    They can find a majority vote against Lanka but not necessary to implement it by Sri lanka.
