Sri Lanka: New Video Evidence Of Grotesque Violations

There has been no shortage of distressing images emerging from the final two or three years of Sri Lanka’s awful civil war. But this footage is amongst the worst I have seen, says Callum Macrae.

The footage shot by Sri Lanka forces on a mobile phone shows a number of dead bodies of what appear to be LTTE fighters.   The women – but not the men – have been stripped in a manner suggesting violent sexual assault.  At various points acts of grotesque sexual violation are committed on the body of one of the women.

No Fire Zone director Callum Macrae said:  “This footage is particularly awful, not just because of the behaviour of the soldiers towards the bodies of the female Tiger fighters, because of the underlying culture of systematic brutality and sexual violence which it seems to illustrate.

He added: “Taken with all the other evidence which has emerged – and continues to emerge – this suggests a pattern which, in an army as disciplined and effective as the Sri Lankan one, means that command responsibility for these actions could be traced to the very top of the armed forces and government.

“We don’t know exactly when this material was filmed – but it was at some point in the last two or three years of the war. It was filmed by a soldier on a mobile phone and its shows Sinhala-speaking soldiers – their uniforms suggest they may be special forces – who are laughing and cheering, as they celebrate the deaths of the Tiger fighters and perform acts of grotesque sexual violation on the bodies.

“We also don’t know exactly what happened or how these people – who appear to be fighters, though they are not wearing combat fatigues – came to die.

“The images were examined by the leading British forensic pathologist Dr Richard Shepherd. He concluded that the injuries shown are genuine and that this footage was not faked, but he also expressed surprise that the bodies showed few signs of the kind of battlefield injuries you might expect if this was the aftermath of a battle or ambush.

“What he could see was evidence – in two cases at least – of serious head injuries, which appeared to have been caused by high velocity gunshots. This led him conclude: “The pattern of injuries overall is such that I can’t exclude the possibility of executions.”

“The video – which has been supplied to No Fire Zone by a Tamil Group, the British Tamil Forum – has also been independently authenticated by a respected digital image analyst who often works for the British courts.

“After an extensive frame-by-frame examination and analysis of the footage he concluded: “I found no evidence of fabrication or manipulation and I have formed the opinion that the video file is authentic insofar as it appears to be an accurate representation of the events depicted.”

    Only one word can describe these savages who get perverted sexual gratification from dead female bodies: Animals. These animals’ faces are clearly seen and their actions and words are clear for all to see in this clip taken by they themselves. The sexual violence continues in the northeast by these savages.

    These animals follow their leaders who provide them with protection and immunity. We will soon here the chorus of “fake video” from the usual sources protecting their leader but the outside world has seen enough to bring a third resolution against the regime.

      There is nothing new in what you’re fabrimenting once again just before a vote on Sri Lanka in Geneva. You have just rehashed the same old fake material purportedly from the last 48 hours. Why don’t you for a change show authentic images of LTTE WAR CRIMES committed over a period of 30 years:

      1. The rape of Sinhalese women and killing their infants by dashing their heads against the wall in border villages.

      2. The killing of civilians including political leaders in the South by terrorist attacks.

      3. The killing of Buddhist monks.

      4. The killing of Muslims while at worship in mosques.

      5. The ethnic cleansing of Jaffna and the expulsion of Muslims from the North.

      6. The killing of 900 policeman who had surrendered.

      7. The killing of Tamil political dissenters including moderate leaders, academics, human rights workers, journalists, trade unionists and public servants.

      8. Tamil children conscripted and sacrificed as cannon fodder.

      9. Raping and killing of female Tigers who were under defector Karuna’s command.

      10. Taking thousands of Tamil civilians as hostages, using them as human shield and finally killing them as they tried to escape during the final stage of the war.

      And there’s even more ……….. Your grotesque one-sidedness (a formal acknowledgement of LTTE’s ruthlessness notwithstanding) completely negates your work.

        Don’t lie.

        LTTE did kill but didn’t rape.

        Most LTTE attacks on villages were carried out by LTTE women. If they had consensual sex with their male victims that is different.

      Sri Lanka is already screwed up in Geneva by UNHRC. By releasing this new video as a regular dose/routine by Channel 4 (as usual just before UNHRC meeting), it is trying to screw Sri Lanka even further. Thanks to the SL Army boys for selling all their mobile phone videos to Channel 4. The war without witness is getting exposed day after day with new evidence. The whole world is now aware of Sinhala-Buddhist Barbarians and their genocidal government and military. It is all happening in the right direction in favor of the Tamils.

    This video clip is only a short clip. The full length original I am sure will have more damning and incriminating acts of barbaric and criminal nature.
    The govt response is predictable
    The latest govt response to Mannar Maas grave is that the site used to be a cemetery and they have stopped further digging and excavation. Another act of denial and rejection by GOSL.

    So the GOSL is sticking to their usual denial and rejection and rump of LTTE and in the payroll of LTTE strategyb

      Animals don’t indulge in sex with dead animals. Many of these Sri Lankan soldiers have sunk below the level of even animals in their inhumanity.

      They cannot be called even barbarians: Barbarians didn’t do anything like this in Rome.

      The Sinhala soldiers – or savages rather, are fit to labelled devils, but I don’t know even devils sexually abuse its dead ones! They may even have had a devil dance after the sexual perversion.

      This is 2500 year old Sinhalese civilization!

    RE: Sri Lanka: New Video Evidence Of Grotesque Violations

    Title Should be: Sri Lanka Sinhala Buddhism : New Video Evidence Of Grotesque Violations – Need to understand the CORE Problem, the Core Foundations of Para-Sinhala Buddhist Racism.

    “There has been no shortage of distressing images emerging from the final two or three years of Sri Lanka’s awful civil war. But this footage is amongst the worst I have seen, writes Callum Macrae.”

    This is called Monk Mahanama Sinhala “Buddhism”, and one aspect of its ideology, practiced by the Para-Sinhala Monk Mahanama Buddhists.

    Want to know more how these Para- ended up in Lanka, the land of the Native Veddah, who are the original inhabitants?

    All know, according to Native Veddah terminology, all are Paradeshis, Para-Sinhla, Para-Tamil and Para-Muslims, i.e. Parangios, just like the Portuguese, Foreigners, in the native Veddah Aethho land. They all originated from South India. If they cannot live in an egalitarian civilized manner, without imposing their Myth-based hegemony, they should leave and get back to South India, with your fellow South Indians. Here is the Data for the above assertion.

    “As such, genetic evidence linking the legendary origin of the Sinhalese population to East India (Prince Vijaya) is lacking.”

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3166342

    Am J Phys Anthropol. 1988 Jun;76(2):217-25.

    Blood genetic markers in Sri Lankan populations–reappraisal of the legend of Prince Vijaya. Saha N. Author information Abstract Serum protein (haptoglobin types; transferrin and group-specific component subtypes); haemoglobin and red cell enzymes (acid phosphatase, esterase D, glyoxalase I, 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase, adenylate kinase, and phosphoglucomutase (locus 1) (subtypes) were studied in the Sinhalese, Tamils, and Muslims of Sri Lanka. The allelic frequencies of all the polymorphic systems were similar in these populations without any significant differences. A close look at the present results and earlier investigations on 13 polymorphic loci controlled by 37 alleles did not reveal any genetic characteristics in the present-day Sinhalese population that are distinct from those in the Tamils of Sri Lanka. As such, genetic evidence linking the legendary origin of the Sinhalese population to East India (Prince Vijaya) is lacking.

    PMID: 3166342 [PubMed – indexed for MEDLINE]

    This is what the True Natives, Native Veddas have to say about the Para- Sinhala and other Paras-, the Paradeshis or foreigners.

    1. All the above descriptions support the Sinhala and Tamil as Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamil, like Para-deshi, Foreigners, as far a the Native Veddah are concerned, who walked at least 16,000 years ago when Lanka and India were connected by a land bridge as the sea levels were low. So, the Sinhala and Tamil Nationalism need to be identified as, Racism, Para-Sinhala Nationalism and Para-Tamil Nationalism. Monk Mahanama imaginations of Mahawansa need to be exposed and discarded. Why?

    Non- Confirmation bias of Mahawansa. Did Dr. Para-nawithana, the noted Sri Lankan Archaeologist believes the Imaginations of monk Mahanama of 5th Century such as:

    a) Grandfather of Para-Vijaya was a lion? Any DNA data in support of this imagination?

    b) Buddha visited Lanka three-times in 500 BC? any support for the Imagination.

    c) During one visit, Buddha left his giant footprint on top of Mount Samanala Kanda, “Adams Peak”. Did he fly by the Dandu Monera Yanthraya, Giant Bird, and parachute?

    d) The Veddah are the offspring of Para-Vijaya and Kuveni. Is there any DNA data to support this? No. Another Monk Mahanama Imagination. Sri Lanka’s indigenous inhabitants, the Veddas — or Wanniya-laeto (‘forest-dwellers’) as they call themselves — preserve a direct line of descent from the island’s original Neolithic community dating from at least 16,000 BC and probably far earlier according to current scientific opinion.1 Even today, the surviving Wanniya-laeto community retains much of its own distinctive cyclic worldview, prehistoric cultural memory, and time-tested knowledge of their semi-evergreen dry monsoon forest habitat that has enabled their ancestor-revering culture to meet the diverse challenges to their collective identity and survival. Further reference: Here some credible data and reference of the genetic Admixture. The Native Veddah were the original inhabitants of the land, well before the foreigners, the parades-his, came from South India.

      It is transparent you’re an overzealous Tamil labouring under the delusion you can hoodwink the world into believing you are a Sinhalese. Save you breath my friend.

      Yes, origin myths are just that – they are myths. But it is immaterial. Most people know they are not historical facts, yet they nevertheless cherish them for ideological reasons. So Amare, though they are myths, they become “real” in a sociological sense and hence shape peoples’ thinking and actions. So it is at that socio-political level that we should challenge them if we want real change in our country. Otherwise, indulging in armchair anthropology and arguing incessantly over ethnographic minutiae only inflames more racism. We have to educate ourselves in the true sense of the word.

      You racist Muslims are infinitely worse than Sinhala Chauvinists, because Sinhalese Chauvinists only seek to dominate Lanka, you followers of a Racist Arab religion want to dominate the whole world and genocide every culture until there is no non Sunni Muslim culture left. History is full of examples of cultures exterminated by Muslim invaders.

      Why do you apologists for GOSL always need to deflect attention away from GOSL’s barbarity by pointing at wars and conflicts elsehwhere. You know the Western media pays a far more attention to Rohinga and Iraq than Sri Lanka.Sri Lanka very rarely makes it in the news.

      You Sunnis only care about Sunnis, you will whine about what is happening in Burma or Syria but keep silent about what is happening in Sri Lanka, even though you claim to be Sri Lankan. That shows the selfish tribal and racist nature of you Muslims. You only care about advancing Sunni supremacy worldwide. You are an ungratefull and backstabbing lot. Islam teaches you to be arrogant, haughty and look down on other religions especially non monotheistic religions.

      It is your racist arrogance that is now receiving push back from the Sinhala Buddhists. Everywhere you go you Sunnis expect to dominante but you ethnically cleanse and persecute non Sunnis in Sunni majority nations.

      At the end of the day you are just an untermenschen to the Arabs. They will always view you as an inferior brown skinned Indian regardless of whether you are Sunni or not. You should go live in the Gulf and see how Arabs treat the likes of you. But despite being considered an inferior being by Arabs, you prostrate yourself every day to an Arab god and the Arab named Muhammed.

      The vast majority of Lankan Muslims are racially similar to Tamils and Sinhalese so when Lankan Muslims keep bending over and praying to Arabs, they show their inferiority complex.

      The blood LTTE or GOSL has split pales in comparison to all the blood Muslims have split and continue to spill. Islam is a racist fascist ideology bent on world domination through force, conversion and breeding like rabbits.

      Just to let you know, Sri Lanka is not your soil as you identify with Arabs. Your culture is not South Asian unlike Tamil,Sinhala Buddhist and Veddah.

        “Your culture is not South Asian unlike Tamil,Sinhala Buddhist and Veddah.”

        The supposed Tamil and Sinhala/Buddhist culture are in toto imported from India.

        Arab traders who frequented this island in ancient and medieval times fathered many children while awaiting for return journey.

        Not only Tamils and Sinhalese have absorbed Western languages but also adapted Western way of life. Therefore talking about authentic Tamil Sinhala culture does not hold water.

        It is a false belief for which both Sinhalese and Tamils have paid a heavy price.

          If Indian SubCon is not South Asian, what is it?

          I did not say anything about Tamil and Sinhala being ‘pure’, which you are alluding to. I merely stated they are South Asian cultures, which they are. English has absorbed many a foreign influence yet no one will dispute that it is native to the Britsh Isles.

          Barring an extremely few cultures like the Onge of the Andamans and some isolated tribes in the Amazon and Papua New Guinea, there isn’t any culture out there that has not absorbed aspects of other cultures.

        They want to appoint an international investigation in to the last few months of the conflict. Don’t be naive, all these calls for investigations started after the tigers were defeated. If they were really cared about crimes by both parties they could have easily called for investigations when tigers were wrecking havoc in our country. Channel 4 had less of a priority on Sri Lanka when the war was raging and an end to our suffering was not in sight.

        “Ofcourse Sri Lankans are generally decent People.”

        And you want me to believe you given that I was not born yesterday.

        “How else could Tamils live in south without any problem when tamil terrorists were butchering people in Buttala and planting bombs in buses and trains targeting school children?”

        These Tamils were forced to move from North to South due to war.

        Sinhala/Buddhists stupid never allowed other people to live in peace since 1915, several riots followed, many lost their life and property……., many women were raped, ….

        Riots against upcountry Tamils never stopped.

        Tamils were denied even their right to own Library and books.

        A International Tamil research conference disrupted and more than 12 people died due to police brutality.

        If Sinhala/Buddhists were decent enough the island would not have suffered so much in the past 66 years. Remember they have been the majority. If these stupid Sinhala/Buddhists were decent enough they would have insisted on inquiries into past riots and atrocities against minorities.

        If Sinhala/Buddhists were decent enough they would have acted upon atrocities committed against children particularly girls.

        If Sinhala/Buddhists were decent enough they would have provided decent living standards for the upcountry hard working Tamils and would not have deported many of them back to India.

        If Sinhala/Buddhists were decent enough they would have demanded a through investigation into all war crimes committed against innocent people from 5th April 1971.

        If Sinhala/Buddhists were decent enough they would have prevented the killing of many innocent Tamils in those wars.

        If Sinhala/Buddhists were decent enough they would have demanded a decent legal system.

        If Sinhala/Buddhists were decent enough they would not have elected most brutal, stupid, cruel ……… politicians.

        If Sinhala/Buddhists were decent enough they would have done lot more to build a rainbow nation based on the principle of Unity in Diversity.

        If Sinhala/Buddhists were decent enough they would have stopped their stupid politicians and bureaucrats building a Sinhala/Buddhist ghetto in the Indian Ocean.

          The low IQed, illiterate fool does not have the mental capacity to understand that there is not a single country to be found with no errors or mistakes. This fool, like all inferior complexed idiots don’t know that countries like USA and UK have far more questionable histories than us. I’ll bet that this fool does not know that USA had 200 odd years of institutionalized slavery!

          It is 30 odd years since the shameful black July happened. After that when LTTE was butchering our children, when it was killing all our capable leaders, when it attacked the most holy place of Buddhists, when it was placing bombs in buses, ordinary tamils living in south were safe. It doesn’t depict the kind of evil indecent people that this inferior complexed Sinhalese trash hiding behind a native name want to paint them like.

        There is defacto 2nd class status for Southern Tamils. Also GOSL forced out Indian estate Tamils, the very people who played the biggest role in developing the Sri Lankan economy.

        But I will say this, the Sinhalese while having their Nationalist also have their decent Buddhists and Christians. Sinhalese and Sinhala culture is infinitely more tolerant, more compassionate and agreeable than Sunni Islamic culture.

        One of the saddest consequences of the war is that most Tamils now have a negative opinion of Buddhism in Sri Lanka . Buddhism is an anti Racist religion (more accurately called a philosophy), unlike Hinduism and Islam.

        I have Sinhala Buddhist immediate family and close relatives who are of mixed Tamil and Sinhala Buddhist ancestry. There is no theological friction between Tamil Hindu/Saivite religion and Buddhism . This is not the case with Islam, which is totally intolerant of other religions.

        A Buddhist Sri Lanka is infinitely more preferable than an Islamic Sri Lanka and at the end of the day Buddhism and Sinhala culture is intimately connected to Dravidian culture and the culture of Dravidians is also the culture of Sinhalese owing to the common racial stock of both peoples.

            You can twist what I said, doesn’t make it true. Either you have a reading comprehension problem or are deliberately trying to twist the meaning of my post.

            It is vastly more preferable for Tamils to identify themselves with indegenous SubCon and Dravidian culture than Arab culture because Tamils are indegenous to the SubCon and are Dravidians.

            Why don’t Arabs adopt non Arab culture, do you ever ask yourself that? It is because they find it more preferable to identify with their ancestral culture than with foreign cultures.

            Jews,Native Americans, Japanese, English, Innuit, Slavs, Swahili speakers,Adivasi,Veddah, Australian Aborigines, Polynesians etc… all wish to retain their ancestral culture. So are you going to condemn them all as being Chauvinist because they won’t give up their ancestral identity?

            “So things not connected to Dravidian culture is not preferable to you?”

            You twisted what I said, because you are implying that my use of the word “preferable” implies I don’t like other culture. Whereas what I said was that I would prefer Tamils to retain their ancestral identity rather than be victims of cultural genocide which is what would happen if they adopted Islam or Hindi or Sinhalese culture.

            There is a lot of non Dravidian cultures that I like and respect.

          Mate you seem to be a reasonable Tamil.Brother look at the amount of poison spilled in this forum.True enough and undoubatdly appaling crimes have commited against the tamils by ”fractions”of our security forces.These videon evidnec is compelling and I have no doubt about.I honestly admit that is a hienous crime and the responsible parties should be brought in front of law to serve the justice.However,does that mean we Sinhalese are barbaric blood suckers.What about thousand of civilians crossed to the gov side during the war .They were looked after amidst various shortfalls.They weren’t massacred.Some Tamils question about Majority Sinhalese silence over the alleged crimes.They have no moral right to do so.When bus loads of innocent people were massacred by LTTE they were silent.When poor boreder villages were destryed they kept silent as well.They silently tolerated if no acknowledged the grave crimes commietd by LTTE for their own benefit and now pointing fingers at Sinhalese.The problem is this issue can never be resloved until both parties make an honest attempt to admit their fair share.We need a fair minded government for the South alos and the present family pseud monarch is an uuter failure in that sense sadly.The video clips posted by Sadith should be seen by all and those cry babies for war crimes should realise there are two sides to every coin.

        This same thing will happen against Tamils in Colombo too.

        Then you can withdraw your decent nonsense.

        It is a matter of time.

        Of course it happened in 1958, 1977 and 1983.

        In 1983 in Wellawatty alone 150 Tamil women were raped.

          Fathima (aka Lorenzo) comments at LW

          The latest BS video shows COLOMBIAN (a Latin American country) soldiers, NOT SL soldiers.

          Our soldiers don’t have that type of GUN and they don’t wear that hat.

          Our soldiers are not so fair skinned either.

          But one is certain.

          IF Tamilians, international community and other war criminals investigate our innocent war heroes and frame them for NO crimes they committed, then these things WILL happen DAILY in Wellawattei and Jaffna.

          IF international troops come things will be MUCH worse!!

          UN troops :))

          Congo, Haiti, Iraq, Afghanistan, Chechnya, Kashmir, IPKF.

    A few dead bodies(most probably combatants) and a few unprofessional soldiers. I don’t see any crimes in this video.

      They may be going over the video to identify the soldiers, which might take another five years, but the outcome is predictable now. Either they fail to identify them or charge, imprison and after a year or two release them by presidential pardon. The latter outcome will give the regime an excuse to deflect any criticism from war crimes allegations.

      The Channel 4 Clips show men in Battle fatigues, assaulting Women.

      How do foreigners like Gordon McRae, identify which side the men belong to? They report what they have been told by the Diaspora Tamils.

          Hear no war crime charges
          See no war crime evidence
          Speak no war crime charges

          These lot are very puritanical when dealing with war crimes charges, they refrain from hearing, seeing and speaking about it at best and denying it at worst.

        You think foreigners don’t know sihala then better you go mad because they can teach you too the same way the British taught the world Sanskrit after they learnt it.

        There are many Brahmins in India who can teach sihala. Similarly there are many Europeans who not only know Sihala but can differentiate between Tamils.

      The GOSL will offer up a few of the guilty soldiers as a necessary sacrifice to tell the international community the GOSL is seeking justice. When in fact the higher up that condoned or approved of such behavior will get away.

      GOSL is also no doubt investigating which soldier gave this video. Hopefully the person and his family are safe overseas.

    LTTE raped sinhalese women?????

    I think you were in sleep and drunken for 30 yrs. Even Your So-called saviors of tamils (Mahinda and his clans & Army) never blamed LTTE for doing Rapes.

    You are an A******, blaming them for the first time. If anybody can prove that LTTE raped, I’ll leave colombotelegraph forever.

    In LTTE control area, A woman can walk at midnight alone without any fear of robbing & rape. Tamils from north and east know what will happen if they do such crimes. Regardless of LTTE carder or normal people, justice is same. Btw, Their police department was more effective than SL.

      They would not have raped.They only exploded bus loads ,train loads of innocent people and hacked innocent children and women in border villages to a cruel death.Not only that they only stormed and attacked religious places like Anuradhapura,blasted civil admin sites like central bank.Oh god I can go on and on but what is the point these partially blind Tamils will never see that side and they live in denial the same way Sinhalese keep in denial about war atrocities.What is the difference mate.We are doing the same this in two different ways and do you think it will make any diffrence. Nope none at all.

    You racist Muslims are infinitely worse than Sinhala Chauvinists, because Sinhalese Chauvinists only seek to dominate Lanka, you followers of a Racist Arab religion want to dominate the whole world and genocide every culture until there is no non Sunni Muslim culture left. History is full of examples of cultures exterminated by Muslim invaders.
    =================================================================

    Look who is talking of racism ..
    Now what is you are blabbering palmsquirrel – make up your mind ?

    Is it Arab religion ? or Suni Culture ?

    Arabs have more than one religion are you aware of it?

    and Suni is not a culture it is rather a School of Thought , get your connections right ..

      Islam is a Gulf Arab invention at its core. Sunni Islam is the majority branch of Islam , and to many Sunni Muslims like Saudis, Sunni Islam is the only Islamic religion as they consider Shia and other Islamic sects to be heresys.

      Religion is a part of culture. Sounds to me like you do not know what culture is.


      ” Look who is talking of racism .”

      And your point is?

      Your religion professes that god is Arab and all other religions/gods are false , so what is the difference between Germans who profess they are the superior race and Arabs exerting racial supremacy through theology. Would it make a dam bit of difference if Germans were to invent a religion that claimed God was German and then proceed to genocide every culture they came into contact with by imposing this German religion on them.

      ” Arabs have more than one religion are you aware of it?”

      Arabian religion is 99% Islam (be it Sunni or Shia). There is a tiny native Arab Christian community in Kuwait . What religion ,other than Islam , is there in Arabia in any meaningfull numbers?

      My conversation above refers to the real Arabs, those of the Pennisula , as Arabs like Palestinians, Syrians, Egyptians,Sudanese,Lebanese etc.. are cultural Arabs for the most part. If you think there is no difference between cultural Arabs and Penninsula Arabs, you have not lived in the Gulf and seen how Gulf Arabs consdier themselves different and treat non Gulf Arabs as 2nd class.

    Tamils supported and Financed LTTE barbarians brutal in all the times.. Tamils who still support eelam and propaganda must kill like this and hang..

    Nothing wrong with these videos as Tamil brutality cannot filmed and show to the world.. I challenge, if someone upload entire video which has sexual abuses , then that should be investigated,

    to: Tamil barbarian who read this news article like flesh meet
    ” sexual abuse by single or group of soldiers cannot be categorize war crime” in it in international law & should be court Marshall or in civilian court.. Bring us correct evinces.. this is just a video which show killed LTTE barbarian ,
    IF you recall you memory there were incidents during The US army occupation in Iraq personal whom did sexual abuse were produced to military court.. and no top commander or the US president accused for war crimes.. Read and understand what is a war crime…..

    If you need credible investigation you must provide better evidences rather that wasting out time, CH4 doing what they paying for..

      ” I challenge, if someone upload entire video which has sexual abuses , then that should be investigated,”

      You are a sadist pervert, go make your own video nasty and enjoy watching it when you rape your own daughters or you can ask a Sinhala/Buddhist father to make one for you when he rapes his under age daughters.

      “If you need credible investigation you must provide better evidences rather that wasting out time,”

      Ask your soldiers they will provide you with amble evidence.

    Since the barbarians involved can be identified, there should be no problem in finding them and prosecuting. Strange that we have not heard of any prosecutions on these grounds. Even confirmed rapist and killer Sampath is given bail and trial dragging for more than two years. Evidently sexual harrassment and rape is the norm. Maybe it is not taboo culturally or not forbidden explicitly. Not a pretty picture that can be justified on any grounds.

          Naïve Vedda,

          That is contrary to the teachings of the religion of peace.

          “And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah is worse than killing.

          But if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)”

      You foolish Tamils go kill, rape each other and Muslims will rule the roost.

      Listen fools. Stop this madness now.

      Trying to hurt others because they hurt you will NOT bring you peace. It will curse you Tamils to eternal hell. Give up hatred and live.

      If you think it is justice to take revenge you will suffer the SAME thing again.

    stripping is a common incident when it comes to captured terrorists. the forces needs to find out any evidence or signs perhaps bombs and cyanide. have you got any photos or video of some soldier is raping a combat terrorist. they are young group of soldiers and taking photo of a dead terrorist cannot be a sexual violence. we know that Channel 4 this particular presenter is a tamil himself and what the aim is. if both sides has committed war crimes where are the footage from the LTTE side..
