Rajiv Gandhi Assassination Death Sentences Commuted

Three convicted over killing of Indian PM may be freed as judges rule they cannot be kept indefinitely on death row

Rajiv

Rajiv

India’s supreme court has commuted the death sentences of three men convicted of assassinating Rajiv Gandhi, the country’s former prime minister, in a case that has riveted the nation for 23 years, the Guardian reports.

A special anti-terrorism court eventually found four people guilty in 1998. They included a woman, Nalini, who gave birth to a daughter while in prison. She was granted mercy when Rajiv’s widow, Sonia, intervened but three others – Santhan, Perarivalan and Murugan (Indian Tamils do not use surnames) – were to be executed in September 2011 when the Madras high court intervened, citing their mercy petitions.

On Tuesday the supreme court said keeping the men on death row indefinitely was wrong and granted them mercy. Perarivalan’s family reacted with relief and joy in Chennai: “It’s an emotional moment,” his aunt told NDTV. “When you see him, he’s a good human being. He will be released and will be enjoying family life.”

She was asked what would she say to the victims’ families. “Twenty-three years have passed … so definitely we want our son to be released. Other families, they are suffering, we have regret for that, but our son cannot be punished.”

    “so definitely we want our son to be released. Other families, they are suffering, we have regret for that, but our son cannot be punished.”
    =====================================================================

    Oh that was easy -so Sri Lankan Soldiers can now rejoice ,in the event if they are tried their family can say the something right?

    So is this the ballgame of dirty India – ? India is dirty we all know that- but how come the Sri Lankan Tamil don’t see it?

    India used them ,raped their women in the name of peace keeping ,tortured them and killed them..

    Sri Lankan _Sinhalese-Tamil -Muslim _burger or simply others -They are all the same ,,,,

    They are too blind they really never understood how to choose their friends- SRI LANKANS ARE LAME.

      Sri Lankan soldiers deliberatly carried out genocide against Tamils. You are comparing the deliberate slaughter and rape of thousands of Tamils to the assasination of 1 person Rajiv, how much more biased can you get.

      Rajiv Ghandi was the head of an organization that deliberately raped and killed Tamils , all under the guise of peace keeping. Rajiv Ghandi had promised to send Indian troops back into Sri Lanka to finish of Tamil resistance which ofcourse would mean more rape and slaughter of Tamils.

        It is the price the Tamils for seducing India which is not just Tamil Nadu.

          How exactly did Tamils seduce India? What you say makes no sense , because India created LTTE for their own regional goal, which was to prevent USA from building a base in Trinco. Once US abandoned the plan, India sent in its Army to destroy Tamil rebels because India fears Tamil Nadu will break away if there is a Tamil Ealam in Ceylon.

            “How exactly did Tamils seduce India?”

            Like playing love under the palmyra tree instead of under the umbrella at galle face green.

            These are matters the north and south should settle- but it was seduction not JT’s having a pot of gold that India needed.You don’t even know how close Sirima and Indira was- if not for that relationship the JVP would have taken over because North Korea even had boxed helicopters at Colombo 7 close to Rosemead place. This trinco is pure portugese fantasy aryan that tamils are hiding under because hitler was defeated. Indira gave not just katchievu your dream but Diego Garcia which Sirima sold to UK and now its a shared UK/US base.

        Re: Sri Lankan soldiers deliberatly carried out genocide against Tamils.

        A: That maybe the case, but based on that logic, the LTTE also deliberately carried out genocide against Tamils, Muslims, Burghers and Sinhalese.

        Re: You are comparing the deliberate slaughter and rape of thousands of Tamils to the assasination of 1 person Rajiv, how much more biased can you get.

        A: One can be a lot more bias, as clearly evident from your statement.

        Re: Rajiv Ghandi was the head of an organization that deliberately raped and killed Tamils, all under the guise of peace keeping

        A: So was VP, only he did it under the guise of freedom fighting. So what is your point?

        You can’t cry foul once you have yourself committed to playing against the rules!

          ” A: That maybe the case, but based on that logic, the LTTE also deliberately carried out genocide against Tamils, Muslims, Burghers and Sinhalese. “

          You do not know the definition of genocide. Genocide is the deliberate attempt to wipeout a race or ethnic group . LTTE has never tried to wipe out any ethnic group. India’s elite has ; the most glaring evidence of this fact is the attempt to force Hindi on the Dravidian south. Another glaring incidence is the sterilisation of 7 million low caste women, and since lower castes are non Aryan, it is genocide by Aryans against Sudras , untoucables and adivasis. LTTE never waged a rape campaign; rape is a tool invaders have used to accomplish genocide.

          “A: One can be a lot more bias, as clearly evident from your statement.”
          This is meaningless because you do not explicitly state what it is in my comment that is evidence of bias. So let me reieterate: how does one compare the assasination of a single leader to the deliberate rape and slaughter of countrless civilians.

          ” A: So was VP, only he did it under the guise of freedom fighting. So what is your point?”

          At the time of the assasination LTTE wasn’r proscribed in the West because LTTE hadn’t resorted to more desperate tactics. LTTE was a direct result OF Sinhala Chauvinism and genocidal attitudes. What was Rajiv’s reason to attack all Tamils, if not for unbridled hate. LTTE was fighting in Sri Lanka, the land of their birth and ancestors , while Rajiv/Indians were fighting outside of India.

          “You can’t cry foul once you have yourself committed to playing against the rules! “
          What exactly are these rules? Tamil armed struggle was a response to Sinhala supremacy, which manifested itself in anti Tamil pogroms. It seems to me you are saying that since Tamils picked up arms , they should accept anything that comes their way.

            Re: You do not know the definition of genocide
            A: Whether they attempted genocide or not is irrelevant, as the Tigers were mass murderers. Are you saying your bar for wrongdoing is drawn at some carefully worded definition of Genocide? Guess that works for you, given you spend your life defending a group responsible for some of the most heinous crimes in human history. All that said, the LTTE did attempt genocide, on the Muslim communities in the East.

            Re: This is meaningless because you do not explicitly state what it is in my comment that is evidence of bias
            A: Only in your world mate. Anyone who reads your hugely sympathetic rant for your side, while justifying a heinous movement of mass murderrers, can see the bias in you. It is this very bias that sustains war, and allows killers to exist on both sides of a conflict as heroes.

            Re: At the time of the assasination LTTE wasn’r proscribed in the West because LTTE hadn’t resorted to more desperate tactics.

LTTE was fighting in Sri Lanka, the land of their birth and ancestors , while Rajiv/Indians were fighting outside of India.
            A: Amazing that you think the above is an actual argument… You are clearly either hugely deluded, or more likely, part of the mass LTTE propaganda movement. Your inability to grasp the fundamentals of justice, or reality for that matter, is blatantly on display here…

            Re:What exactly are these rules? Tamil armed struggle was a response to Sinhala supremacy, which manifested itself in anti Tamil pogroms. It seems to me you are saying that since Tamils picked up arms , they should accept anything that comes their way.
            A: Bingo! You justify picking up arms, but seem so oblivious to the consequences that come with it. In your world, everyone else is to blame. You are simply the innocent righteous victim, justifying murder, abduction of children, suicide bombings, human trafficking, arms smuggling, drug trafficking – all in the name of an ‘armed struggle’.

            Get real mate! You can’t support a heinous group, and expect sympathy when heinous acts are carried out against you.
            Many innocent Tamils, including children and women, died in the hands of the LTTE (and also other groups including the GoSL). To point the finger at one side, and defend the other, is insulting to the dignity of all those who lost their lives to this evil war sustained by power hungry individuals from both sides. You should be ashamed of yourself for defending such a group. If you want justice for your people, then open your eyes, and demand true justice – though by the sounds of what you write here, you may yourself be a culprit responsible for answering to many of the heinous acts carried out against your own people…

They also function under personal vested interests, with no respect for truth or justice.

              Truth and justice for you right now depends on your pay master”” Dont talk of international and foreign diplomats etc that you have never associated with

              Authority is the Truth in practice no one else

              Truth is the daughter of Time not authority.

              The release of the Three convicted over killing of Indian PM is because the Judges who are employees have to look after their arse knowing NaMo is due.
              eg. When Janata Party was due for the first time and Dr S Swamy was to be the minister of Justice.
              Dr Swamy moved to the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi and he was a professor of mathematical economics there from 1969 to 1991. He was removed from the position by its board of governors in the early 1970s but was legally reinstated in the late 1990s by the Supreme Court of India. He continued in the position until 1991 when he resigned to become a cabinet minister for law and justice plus commerce and industry.
              Authority is the Truth – In science and technology we carry out experiments and find truth which again gets interpreted by idiots like you.

                Truth is the truth, and that is, people show a blind eye to their biases, and justify injustices by their side, while demanding justice for themselves. This sums up the whole debacle that is Sri Lanka. Neithef side wants to see their flaws, but are experts at finding the flaws of the otherside. Thus we have sustained conflict and poor governance. Idiots like me fortunately have no bias. Yes, I may be an idiot to hope that one day mankind will be able to look inwards, and corrct their own flaws individually, rather than wage wars against others fuelled by hypocrisy, selfishness and ignorance. I’m happy being that idiot, as opposed to the warmonging you lot who consuder yourselves to be geniouses, when in fact you are all nothing but dilluded know it alls. Btw, your rant above is absolute tosh! How can someone be reinstated to something in the kate 90s, and hold it till 91? Similarly how does one Thihold a position from 69 to 91 if he was remived in the 70s. Think you need to get the principles of basic mathematics sorted before going into science and technology!

        ICRC report has mentioned that SLA soldiers had actually sacrificed their soldiers to save Tamil civilians by using militarily ineffective tactics. So how do you say SL army deliberately did a genocide?
        One reason being that there was no genocide at all.

      The damn Tigers should be ashamed seeing how the civilized world functions. Prapakaran showed no mercy for anyone who crossed his path.
      The mass murderer, child killer and serial assassin was such a totally demented psychopath, he killed even those who disagreed with him in their dreams. Prapakaran the fascist butcher had only one punishment in his criminal justice system for all his victims – torture and kill.

      This is a timely and welcome step by India to signal to Geneva just before the Annual March Farce to be wary of the supporters of the fascist LTTE now parading as champions of human rights and democracy, and trying to influence the proceedings.

      ” India is dirty, we all know that” — Very racist statement..
      In SL, there were attempts to kill President (CBK), killed ministers and lot of peasants (believed to be done by Tamil rebels), Were there prosecution or attempts to prosecute those culprits? I haven’t heard much… SL is believing in murdering all captured… Geneva convention doesn’t apply.
      India is applying judicial processes as a democratic & civilized country? And people in SL says India is dirty.. What a joke?
      Recently, after the war victory, Prabakaran’s long time personal assistant/secretory was prosecuted by SL AG .
      What was the sentence? Two months prison term.. … So called world worst terrorist’s personal assistant got only 2 months prison term, obviously that was what AG had requested.. What a joke…

    I am glad they were granted mercy at the end. Though they were all LTTE terrorists.

    After all they were mere foot soldiers. The LTTE high command lived well in the Vanni until their brutal end. Those who backed the cruel LTTE high command still thrive in the West. Promoting “Human Rights” apparently.

    The poit is nobody or institution has the right to take a life. Including the government of India. Capital punishment is so profoundly wrong. Must be abolished.

    Hopefully the pardoned killers have realized how they have been used by LTTE’s perverted version of Tamil racism. To conduct ghastly crimes in Sri Lanka and in India.

    It is a timely reminder to the world what the LTTE was all about in reality. And what Sri Lankans of all ethnicities were forced to live through for 30 years.

    Cheers!

      Ben Hurling,

      Look at you Buddhist Sinhala racists in a mirror. The high command Sinhala racist terrorists still live and enjoy even after brutally murdered over 100,000 Tamils. You Buddhist Sinhala racism still thrive well in Sri Lanka. Unfortunately, you Sinhala Buddhist racists not only think but implement the right to take a life without justice in the name Buddhism. I still remember 1958 when Sinhala Buddhist racist terrorists dragged a mother with a child and burnt them in the middle of a street and call this as a bravery and those who took arms to stop that happening as terrorists. The crimes committed by your race against poor Tamils cannot be comparable even with Nazi Germans. Sinhala means brutality, blood thirsty, violent creatures.

For the very reason that sanctions would hurt the people, not the ‘leaders’ sanctions were not imposed a number of times in the past. This issue is NOT against Sri Lanka, bit against Rajapakses.

      You ignore all the crimes the Indians did against Tamil civilians when they were in Sri Lanka. LTTE killed Rajiv because he wanted to send Indian troops back into Sri Lanka to further brutalise Tamils. Rajiv to the Tamils was no different as Saddam to the Kurds.

      The Nehru-Ghandi family has shown a Nazi like hate towards Dravidians because the Nehru-Ghandi family is Aryan. Ever since Nehru, this family which has ruled India for decades has waged genocide on non Aryans, from forcibly or coercibly sterilising 7 million low caste women (during Indira Ghandi’s rule) to repeated attempts to exterminate Dravidians by trying to impose Hindi on the South. So the actions of the Indian army (under Rajiv) against Ceylon Tamils must be viewed in the wider historical context of the region as it pertains to race, caste and linguistic heritage.

        “” You ignore all the crimes the Indians did against Tamil civilians when they were in Sri Lanka.””

        It’s your adopted nation US that caused the division into 4 parts just to get at Russia.

        India is yet to be independent of the US/UK/Farsi Persian. The Opium Farsi changed their clothes and names to Gujarati. Rajiv is the son of Farsi Gandhi the brain child of Nehru. Farsi distributed the opium to China for the British started the opium wars and annexed Hong Kong.
        Lanka is no different- the present day richest landed at Mutwal and lived in the harbour homes just like the chetties had nothing just masqueraded as sudhu pukka and evaded all forms of payment to be what they are – just buy and sell.
        It’s important to think inclusive and read, travel.

        Presently these Farsi’s are having a problem because there is a steady influx from Iran to India so they started moving goal post to say they arrived at Karnataka by boat while before they just trekked like the Persian invaders.

          Are you alluding to the division of India in India,Pakistan and Bangladesh? If so this was between the Hindus and Muslims in the SubContinent and the British. The US was on the sideline if anything.

          Rajiv is half Kashmiri Brahmin from his mother’s side and half Parsi (Zorastrian). Both the Brahmins and Parsi claim Aryan racial origins as both are Indo-Iranian sub groups.

He lives close to that place too who informed me about the partition. He knows almost every building in UK Ireland US and Canada and its history. There are a couple of others at the same school I checked too.

              What Aryan concept is scorned at by Europeans?

              I didn’t say North Indians are Aryan though they are Indo-Aryan in liguistic terms but racially are mostly of pre-Aryan stock. Aryan is a racial term that was used by Indo-Iranians but it was not exclusively a term to denote only those of Indo-Iranian stock but rather to any who conformed to certain social ideals.

              Europeans were able to control India, because India has always been divided by caste and sectarianism. There never was an India before the British created it, though there was commonality of culture and racial stock.

                    Only villagers who come to the cities of India talk of Aryan no one else that is your inbuilt problem.
                    There are many books when it comes to talk of Anthropology, Ergonomics/human engineering, that is why we have books by Rohana which the west believed. There are hundreds of authors and we refer several books because no one is 100%.

                You should study European history and the wars before comparing your personal caste problem-eg. Henry V111 father of Elizebeth 1 and his links with Carlos 1 (his aunt was Catherine) and the joint wars with ottaman and french -and the class which is also caste. Britian never allowed a catholic and spain will never allow a christian and there is class there too.
                When you need legal advice you go to a lawyer and for him to say a few words he charges you a few depending on his standing that is caste.
                The sub caste of that is one can use the language and win a case but the other can cross examine (make the accused pee in their pants) and win. Both are winners and are sub caste.if you cant marry a high caste that is your problem because everyone is choosy and try to get the right balance but there is never a guarantee therefore even the Chinese have divorce from 1931. In China they said Taiwan were the nationalist but I notice now the CPC are even more nationalist- time is never stagnet then everything becomes putrid.

    We all forget Sri Lankan Naval ratings missed attempt to murder Rajiv Gandhi in Colombo when he visited Sri Lanka. Probably he would have got promotion like the SL navy ratings who were destroying an entire road (Central Road) of Tamil shops from night 10 p.m. until 5 in the morning next day in 1983 while their Commander who was inside the Naval Dockyard along with the others got promotions. That is Sri Lanka Navy discipline and rule of law for you. In the case of these three accused persons there was enough evidence to show that they were not the main culprits and in any event they have served 23 years in prison which is more than the period served by those serving life sentence in most of the countries of the world and in 139 countries death penalty has been abolished.

    A healthy process of justice must have, as part of its necessary component, the presence of compassion and mercy in equal measure. The Rajiv Gandhi killing is a result of a political conspiracy – whose real engineers were never found. The Kartikeyan Report was nothing but circumstantial evidence to save the Indian establishment from blame and criticism. Kartikeyan’s report had sufficient holes to run an armoured tank through it. At the time Rajiv G died Khalistanis,
    Sikhs, Sharad Pawar’s followers, Bofors-deniers, among others, were all after him. Many still believe the LTTE were used merely as triggermen with the conspiracy being the burden of others within India. The killing of Sanjay and Indira still remain mysteries.

    The relatively free judicial system, a probing media culture, a totally politically neutral tri-forces, an independent Elections systems, inter alia, continues to provide welcome oxygen to the country that Galbraith rightly described in terms of an anarchic democracy. Despite its ills the country is now an agricultural and economic power. That is far preferable to the variety that Sri Lankans are fated to inherit – now run by drug-traffickers, gangsters, kidnappers, extortionists, pimps, comfort women, venal political leaders relying on the army and what else have you. The sooner this kali yugaya (kalakanni rajaya, if you like) is over Sri Lankans will breathe a sigh of relief – hopefully united thereafter in all 4 corners of the lovely island.

      His education is worse than that of Sajith more like Namal in the cubical.
      When Pakistani Islamist bomb he says Indian Muslims are terrorist because Manmohan is a pakistani.

    All I been trying to make plain here is that there is no problem really between any of us Sinhalese ,Tamil or Muslims , there is a hidden hand who benefits from our misery ,if we can not understand this and forgive and unite and move ahead ,then that’s a destiny we have chosen.

      Muslim isn’t a race , and that is one of the issues I have. That the Ceylon Muslim organisations try to classify Muslim as an ethicity distinct from Tamils, which invariably means the destuction of the Tamil ethnic roots of most Lankan Muslims. Ofcourse I am not referring to the Muslim Lanks who are obviously not Tamil, eg: Memons , Malays and certain other Muslims who show Arabian phenotypes.

      Europeans were famous for converting Native Americans as a means to destroy Native American identity. Regarding religious conversion; whether it was the White man or the Arabs who settled in Ceylon, conversion to eraze one’s ethnic identity is cultural genocide. If Sinhala Buddhists converted Tamil Hindus and Christians as a means to destroy Tamil ethnic identity that would be cultural genocide, so the same applies to Muslims who work towards erazing Tamil ethnic roots of Tamil Muslims.

      Could you define what you perceive as Muslims. Is it a race, religion or culture?

      Are those Arabs living in Middle in Muslims?

      Are black Africans Muslims?

      Are those Malays living in Malaysia and Indonesia Muslims?

      Are European Bosnians Mulims?

      Are those Gujarati speaking adherents of Islam also Muslims?

      Are those Bengali speaking adherents of Islam also Muslims?

    Has Judge Sivathasan shown leniency and mercy to the LTTE, when Ms Pillai from Geneva says there won’t be any mercy for Srilankan soldiers who killed the LTTE and its Chief Operations Officer.

    Has the Judge secured his tenure under the Butcher from Gujarat and written off Gandhis?.

    Will Ms Sonia still instruct her PM to say Yes to Cameron, Obama and Ms Pillai in Geneva?.

      Atleast India has a sizeable population of Muslims, while Pakistan ethnically cleansed and genocided the Hindus ,Christians and Buddhists to the point that the current demographics of the aforementioned in Pakistan is tiny .

      Pakistan was carved out because Muslims wanted their own country independent of Hindu Indian rule yet India has more Muslims than Pakistan.

      Sevela sumane,

      You know nothing about who a govigame , vellala or whom Indira Gandhi (nee Nehru) married and to what caste or place he came from.

      you like most here have been to some wayside school to learn English grammar and think the world is your oyster. but is never the case- you are just a mere clerk/typist talking cock and bull and undressing everyone as like an offshot that you are.
      Now here it is you village beastality breed scoundrel.

      India is yet to be independent of the US/UK/Farsi Persian. The Opium Farsi changed their clothes and names to Gujarati. Rajiv is the son of Farsi Gandhi the brain child of Nehru. Farsi distributed the opium to China for the British started the opium wars and annexed Hong Kong. Lanka is no different- the present day richest landed at Mutwal and lived in the harbour homes just like the chetties had nothing just masqueraded as sudhu pukka and evaded all forms of payment to be what they are – just buy and sell. It’s important to think inclusive and read, travel.

    Sonia intervened to obtain a pardon for Nalini; which is an unrevengeful act of Sonia. Now the Court says the others found guilty cannot be kept in the death row indefinitely; demonstrating the independance of the Jidiciary acting according to natural justice.

      That was a political move by the foreigner Italian to get closer to the gullible voters who still think Gandhi the muslim that Indra was forced to marry is a Gujarati like the naked fakir mahtma gandhi (he liked have 4 virjins always and discarded them like in a islamic harem)

      The leader of the opposition Sushima warned her that she would shave her head if Sonia became PM so she appointed pakistani Manmohan.

    I am glad these three have been released from a death warrant because those who were behind the murder, including the indian politicians, have escaped any punishment. The LTTE carried out the killing at the behest of some indian politicians and this fact was hushed up. Rajiv was responsible for the atrocities the IPKFS committed against the Tamil civilians of the north. The IPKFS monument in Jaffna should be destroyed.

      Piranha,
      You are correct.
      Member of the Legislative Assembly Ms Maragatham brought the suicide bomber Dhanu to the venue of the meeting at Sriperumbudoor and went back immediately.
      The group of congressmen who were there kept well behind when Rajiv walked forward to the group of civilians waiting to meet him. Then Dhanu garlanded him and bent down to ‘touch his feet’and detonated the bomb.
      Maragatham and these congressmen escaped – and did NOT give evidence in the murder trial.
      The Chinon camera of photographer Babu escaped the blast and all photos were intact.Thus the case was ‘solved’.

    Oh my days how stupid Indians are esp north indians. The so called Aryans only make up about 20% of the so called north indian population but yet they have always ruled so far. Are these low caste north indians fools or something to continue voting for these aryans eventhough these aryans actually despise them. This is basically apartied except that in this case the idiotic low castes actually vote for their oppressors.

      The system is rigged, and the upper castes control the political machinery a great deal so people can only vote for who is put up as a candidate by the big parties. Despite this there are changes like Modi, who is of Sudra caste and Mamta Banergi whos caste I don’t know but she looks quite native and tribal. The lower castes have been rising up the political ladder but there is a long ways to go.

        The Indians got the Freudian slip and surprised Dayan just walked through.
        the reason missionary school education.

        Aryans are a sub group within Indo-Iranian , which itself is an Indo-European subgroup. The Indo-European homelands is in the Eurassian steppes in an area spanning modern day Ukraine and Western Kazakstan. Aryans aren’t native to Iran, they entered the Iranian Plateau some time in the 2nd millenium BC. Before the Aryans there were other civilizations in Iran.

    Jayalalithaa govt to release seven convicted for killing Rajiv Gandhi

    http://indiatoday.intoday.in/story/jayalalithaa-release-of-rajiv-gandhi-killers-dmk-aiadmk/1/344319.html

    “Seven convicts in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, including Nalini, would be freed, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa said on Wednesday.

    Announcing the government’s decision in the assembly, Jayalalithaa said the government would release V.Sriharan alias Murugan, A.G. Perarivalan alias Arivu, T. Suthendraraja alias Santhan, Nalini, Robert Payas, Jayakumar and Ravichandran, reported IANS.

    All the seven are convicts in the former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi assassination case.

    The Supreme Court had on Tuesday commuted the death sentence to Murugan, Perarivalan, and Santhan citing an 11-year delay in deciding their mercy petitions.

    The decision to release them was taken in the cabinet meeting held Wednesday.

    Jayalalithaa said the state government’s decision will be sent to the centre. If it does not respond within three days, the state government would release all the seven convicts.

    MDMK chief Vaiko said it was “a bold and historic decision by Jayalalithaa”.

    Rajiv Gandhi was killed in May 1991. The conspirators were convicted by a TADA court in January 1998 and were awarded death sentence, which was confirmed by the apex court May 11, 1999.”

    Has CM Jayalalitha dug out the first sod to build the Independent Tamil Nation aka Tamil Eelaam?.

    She gave only 3 days notice to the Centre to shape up or ship out.

    If the Killers of a PM of the country can be released to become heroes,what is the state of the authority of the Centre.

    Transformation of Tamil Nadu into fully blown Eelaam will happen sooner than later.

    Even the decision of the Judge Sivathasan indicates that Gandhi era is coming to an end soon.

    The ex CM of Gujarat, whom the Indian media call the Butcher, is a sure fire bet to take over old Manmohan’s office.

    Indian bookies will be reluctant to offer even USD 1.10 for a Dollar bet.

    Modi who is in bed with not only Jayalalitha but also her Opposition leader, wouldn’t be able to say no to the CM.

    Even without Jayalalitha , Vaiko , Seeman and Nedu will be unstoppable with more than half the population of Naduans who are poor , getting behind them once they are pumped up with the dream of Eelaam and a better life.

    Even the well to do Naduans will be ecstatic with the feeling of their own Eeelam passports.

    US, once the enemy and now the lover who would love Modi even better , wouldn’t mind an Eelaam for the simple reason that they wouldn’t want another “China” strictly in Economic terms , next to the real one.

    The current Srilankan leaders seem well aware of this.

    They will ensure that the borders are safeguarded and the inhabitants protected against any militarism from an Eelaam..

    But the current campaign from overseas to force regime change if successful will weaken the security of the country and her inhabitants and make them vulnerable.

    That is the message the Govt leaders should take to the rural .poor masses who are not up to speed in international affairs.
