The Proscription Of The Tamil Diaspora: War By Other Means

By Krisna Saravanamuttu

I woke up this morning and found that two organizations I work very closely with, the National Council of Canadian Tamils and the Tamil Youth Organization, are now banned terrorist front organizations in Sri Lanka. Any politician, civil society member or NGO that works with us from the island will be treated as a criminal. Any representative from these Diaspora groups who visits their homeland will be arrested under the Prevention of Terrorism Act.

Through the use of anti-terrorism legislation, Sri Lanka has long been able to designate acceptable and unacceptable political objectives. With the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA), Sri Lanka redefined the legitimate political aspirations of the Tamil Nation into crime and security problems. From the Tamil United Liberation Front’s Vaddukkodai Declaration to the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam’s Interim Self Governing Authority, Sri Lanka pursued a military campaign instead of negotiations in good faith. Sri Lanka butchered hundreds of thousands of Tamils under the guise of the PTA. Today Sri Lanka evokes the same PTA to deny fundamental civil liberties to Tamils under the occupation. The arbitrary arrest of Jeyakumari and her daughter; the late night rounds up of entire villages; checkpoints that restrict freedom of mobility; the persecution of former LTTE cadres is all a consequence of the PTA.

The current paranoia around terrorism in the Sinhala Nation comes from a well-conditioned populace, arising from decades of fear through the public policy of “Tamil Tiger Terrorist” discourse. The cultural fear of the Tamil Tiger reconstructed the Tamil civilian as the terrorist other in Sri Lanka. In Sri Lanka, every Tamil is a possible Tiger and every Tamil can be arbitrarily detained, harassed and killed.

The Tamil struggle for independence emerged as a reaction to a post-colonial state building process where the leaders of the Sinhalese Nation subjected the Tamils to riots, military aggression, and police brutality while denying them power sharing, employment opportunities, land rights, and access to higher education. Violent repression of peaceful politics compelled Tamil youth to take up arms. Sri Lanka’s war on the Tamil People, branded as a “terrorist problem,” internally displaced thousands. Thousands more were compelled to flee as refugees. We are the children of those refugees.

Even today the Diaspora—numbering over a million across the globe and over 300,000 in Toronto—continue to be a major factor in the island’s conflict. The discourse of terrorism regulates the activities of the Tamil Diaspora even after the military defeat of the LTTE. Vicki Sentas affirms, “targeting the Tamil Diaspora remains a deliberate foreign policy and counter-terrorism strategy” because the Sri Lankan Government “seeks to consolidate its victory over the idea of political self-determination for Tamils” (Sentas, 107). The end of war does not necessarily mean peace. Until a just and equitable political resolution is reached for the island’s intractable conflict, the demonization of the Tamil struggle will inevitably play out as Sri Lankan foreign policy.

Without a doubt, the proscription on the Tamil Nationalist Movement in the Diaspora seeks to create a wedge between Tamils abroad and Tamils in occupied Eelam. The intention of this process fits into the state’s overall strategy of genocide to isolate Tamils in the homeland from their kith and kin around the globe. The recent collaboration in Geneva of Eelam Tamils from the homeland and the Diaspora unambiguously raised the nature of our peoples’ oppression as nothing less than genocide and the struggle as nothing more than liberation. Eelam Tamils boldly stood on their own two feet to assert their sovereign rights as a Nation within the halls of Geneva.

As of now, we, Tamil youth and students involved in the liberation struggle, are a people in exile, yet the day will come when our feet will touch the soil of our liberated homeland. The ban on the Diaspora will only strengthen our resolve to end the occupation and free the Tamil Nation.

        Wathie;

        This guy, Mr Krishna, Is telling,

        “As of now, we, Tamil youth and students involved in the liberation struggle, are a people in exile, yet the day will come when our feet will touch the soil of our liberated homeland”.
        Krishna and your Genocide marauding Cliques;
        The Hero of Diaspora TamiZars, Killer Pirapaharan, tried that with the help Of So called Socialist, Patriot Looter, F king Rajapassa AND sent hundred thousands to eternity.
        But Rajapassa Gave him and Thousands of Innocents Sri lankans a TOFFEEYa with Fire,
        and Pirpaharan Got the Choice of Russian Roulette,
        A Top chance that no body got.
        The Top notch VP’s Clan joined hand with And Giving Hoards of money after the war to F king and His Brother Hothambaya, Looted from Tamizars in Vanni.

        We saw the Voting of Resolution in Geneve,
        The Tamizar’s saviour for 30 years,
        The Trojan Horse, INDIA, GAVE SLAP ON TAMIZAR’S FACE in Genève.

        May be Krishna’s clan believe in a Ukraine, Crimean style invasion in sri lanka? fro their adopted mother India.
        without helping Sri Lankan Tamizars to make their lives better.

        Indian Politikkas, Jeyalalithaa, Kalanjer Karunanidhi did not have a Say. So do others who wants to Put Srilankan Tamizars from hot pan into Fire.
        You do not Understand How they Suffered and Suffering because of yours Pipe dream EEELAAM.
        Let the Sri Lankan Tamizars to live their lives and Try to Help them.

        As your Dream government Minister Mrs Usha Sri SkandaRajah says;

        “Your EEEELAAAM, it is a Real Pipe Dream”.

      I have to agree with noel-jones.

      Sometims one wonders whether these LTTE monkeys in various front groups with lofty names are awake at all.

      Talking about “Tamil nation” & “Sinahala nation” etc. In reality this guy is hardcore ethno-nationlist, Tamil racist.

      He knows how to sugarcoat this extreme ideology that burned Sri Lanka alive for 30 years with a concern for Human Rights & freedeom for Tamils etc.

      Here is a challenge for you Krishna. Get a life!

      Cheers!

      PS: USA, UK & Canada metes out exactly the same treatment to anyone or group even remotely affiliated to Al Qaeda.

          Native,

          This Krishna, a self declared Pundit on Tamil affairs in SL must settle here first. Before lecturing. Guy has never been here.

          He could start by standing at the barricades with Tamils who lost their loved ones during the LTTE vs SLA carnage in nothern Sri Lanka.

          He will of course not do that. He prefers lecturing from Canada. He has never been in any danger. Only Tamil kids. Not him.

          In fact, he only cares about the racist Ealam project. Nothing else.

          Tamil or Sinhalese lives has never been his concern despite the HR facade.

          Cheers!

    Krisna,
    I can understand what you says here and your love and attachment to your homeland. But unfortunately in SL, we have three dumb asxxx ruling the country. I hope and wish, there will be regime change in next election (2016?), and I hope we can make the country and the constitution a secular one as an important step to get out of this misery. Brother, I am wishing to join you in returning back to SL and do what I can do to promote love and brotherhood with all Tamils. As a member of the majority, I believe I have bigger responsibility here.
    Stay tight… It is going to happen…

      Tamils are equally chaunists as sinhalese.
      So long both would not grasp the nature of peace achievements, it will be waging as Palastenians have been for the dozens of decades. They are still at the beginning to start peace talks..
      I think, in our country, both parties should take part in discussions based on every issue regardless of them being minor or major on a regular manner. Platform is built, now it should work. I wonder how much progress they have made in terms of discussions since Sep 2013 ? not even 0,0000000000000000000000000000000000000000001%. What is standing on that way ? should be closely studied.

      Hey Brother, Are you living in Sri Lanka or Canada? I think you are a sinhala asylum seeker. Mahinda Rajapaksa will be the only prsident for another 10 years for sure. As long as sinhalese are majority, he will be our president. We will never allow this tiger sympathizers and sinhala tigers to enter Sri Lanka. We are better off without you guys. Your dreams will never come true.

    How dare you blame the SL government when you are still creating problems from the comfort of your adopted country. Aren’t you’ll happy what Canadian government is providing you’ll. Why shed crocodile tears for the people you’ll left behind so that you’ll won’t get conscripted by your Sun god.

    You’ll talk so passionately about Tamil rights – what about Muslim rights, Sinhala rights, etc. You’ll massacred them mercilessly and not a single hum about the Tamil atrocities.

    That is what’s wrong with the Tamils – you’ll want to fight for your rights but trample others.

        Five years too long? The neocon gang invaded Iraq in 2003 killing at least a million civilians on a false pretext of searching for WMD. No WMDs were found. So, the British set up an internal inquiry six years later in July 2009 to probe invasion. 12 years on to invasion, it (Chilcott report) is not out to date.

    This stupid move by the Rajapaksa regime will further invigorate the tamil diaspora into causing more trouble for the regime. The tamil diaspora has the numbers, the brains, the money and the influence with their host governments to cause major problems for the regime. Sri lanka will suffer economically and the suspected war criminals in the government and the armed forces will face travel bans, asset freeze etc.

    This big blunder by Rajapaksa will alienate the tamils in Sri lanka even further if their diaspora relatives are targeted when visiting Sri Lanka. Rajapaksa is promoting rather than reducing the risk of an LTTE resurgence. Rajapaksa needs the resurgence of the LTTE to stay in power and he knows that the Sinhala masses are total idiots to believe him.

      Piranha,Yes they have numbers,brains[to seed hatred],the money[to buy media,H/R organisations,Lawyer’s,Senetor’s,UN officials include Navi Nazi Pillai,TV Stations,MP’sin Canda and UK, and Sinhala traitor’s], and host government influence to pressure Rajapaksha government. Die-Ass-Pora’s new struggle one day diminish in vain, as their God Father’s death in 2009.

      And this is only the begining Piranha. Many more on the way. You put more pressure on him and the consequences would be fatal. Rajapaksha has so many other countries to go except USA,UK,Canada and EU for bilateral or economical matters. And Rajapaksha’s have no international assets to freeze.

      Don’t you think that Rajapaksha has the more assets than Die-Ass-Pora. Except of the above assets he has a country, he has people, a government,forces and many more friendly countries. Even if USA impose sanctions on us, SL can survive. Only 20-22% of exports going to USA. After sign the propose China-SL trade agreement at the end of this year, the 20-22% exports to USA can divert to China markets.

      Haven’t you being telling all these years, Sl gover is facing problems in the west by western government because of humanitarian concerns. Now the cat has come out. The reality is pro LTTE elements abroad are pressurizing the governments there buying firms which was rejected by all tiger sympathizers here. That is apparent when you say this “The tamil diaspora has the numbers, the brains, the money and the influence with their host governments to cause major problems for the regime.”.

      The reality is humanitarian concerns is a blanket cover.
      Between I don’t think your estimate of the tamil diaspora is correct.
      1. It doesn’t have the numbers, brains as you think may be money. The success of diaspora so far has been inaction and stupidity of the SL government. Tiger elements have influence in UK and toroto I accept that but that too is because of inaction of the SL government.
      There wont be an LTTE resurgent we wont allow that. And diaspora relatives wouldn’t get arrested when they are in SL because they wont be given visa to come. This guy says he is from NCCT. It is the reincarnation of the banned (you couldn’t stop that) TRO. SL government did nothing to stop NCCT until now.

      Dayan, face the criticism by counter criticism. Your comment about banning foreign Tamil organizations and arresting Tamil diaspora shows your inability and utter defeat in preventing the truth of a genocide coming out to light. The better job for you is to join with Gotas white van squad and assist them in identifying Tamil activists who voice for their oppressed community. May be you can change your name from Dr Dayan to WHITE VAN DAYAN. Suits well.

    This is long over due. Going forward all Sri Lankans living in SL, who work with these banned terrorsit organizatins should be arrested and their properties confiscated. This is similar to what the west is doing especially USA when it comes to Alqeda.

    Krisna,
    Here is some advice for you. It is good to get involved in organizations which attempt to bring peace and harmony between the Tamils and Sinhalese. But if these organizations are involved in ant-Sri Lankan, terrorism and/or activities leading to division of the country you should disassociate. I am sure you are aware of the violence Sri Lanka went through during that past 30 years. Nobody in SL wants that to happen again. What ever steps the gov. takes to avoid reemergence of terrorism in SL is well supported by all including Tamils. You may have read how corrupt the current SL gov. is. It is possible that things will change in the near future and SL having a new government. But don’t expect any gov. to allow separatism or terrorism to reemerge in Sri Lanka.
    By the way, what is the “Tamil Nation” you are talking about? Any one can have political aspirations as they desire but it should be under the laws of the country. Anything out of that will be treason and should be dealt with.
    You are either too young or too old to remember how many negotiations we had with the LTTE with the help of Norway. Nothing worked, the LTTE use these negotiations to rearm themselves to start fighting. You say “Sri Lanka evokes the same PTA to deny fundamental civil liberties of Tamils” but if you are not involved in subversive activities you shouldn’t worry anyway. Look at the US, ask Muslims how they feel treated in the US. Stigma of terrorism is hard to get rid of whether in SL or any other country. I hope you have the wisdom to understand the war was against a group of Tamil terrorists not Tamil people. The Tamil diaspora (possibly you too) unfortunately funded this terror group. You will have to wait because it takes time to heal the effects of 30 years of terrorism and redevelop trust.
    To me, what you write here clearly indicate tones of reemerging terrorism. Hope I am wrong!

      Today we the sinhalese alone have been struggling for our rights. Women have fears. Children have also fears not to be caught by drug mafia or from becoming addicts. Have we enjoyed our rights under the current regime ? Do we have rights for justice in this Raja land ?Where have justice and fairness gone – people are still like injected mice for the lab experiments. They have been instrumental for election victories. Day before yesterday´s results proved the change could take longer than one guesed at. Every state should have their own anti terror acts pacts, but their performance right these days in this country are far from all norms. Those who really hurt others are being protected. I really have the feeling that they just play with own folks(regardless of the race, religion and other parameters). They make like Rajas for their benefits.This has now become a familial rule. Those who lick their feet can survive others get marginalized from the scene. That is it. Pathetic.

In the same time showing blind eye to ones that do all harms to others. Number one example is BBS. Then the police that seem to have turned to be Rajapakshe police to this day. So police spokesman though made clear remarks would leave the position after the election – I doubt. And there is no press freedom in this country… press works only for their favour.. this the public cant get easily. Rajapakshes are born abusers.

So do many of scandinavian school models. You seem to have not caught it with the time, though your alma mater was Pera. Anyway, having left the contry for Europe, I have gone through all barriers through out my education. There I learnt to feel us all equal. Those who hang on real sinahalya or tamils are the real barrier for the future unity. Right at the moment, what matters is to clear the basis first to start off the peace process. There you guys to fester the wounds being stuck on to pvt agendas, destructs all prerequisites. Trust me, that can only bring everyone of you more harm than you feel now, specially on long run. Just see, that we all have one-colour blood – so long we are all homosapiens.

    The opposite of what you say is true. “Tamil Tiger Terrorist” discourse was the ideology fashioned by the LTTE to brainwash Tamil children to look at Sinhalese people as being congenitally thirsty for Tamil blood and hence the Sinhalese were mortal enemies worthy of only being killed as the ‘Other.’ Tamilselvan’s “river of blood” and Kuthirai Kajendran’s “50000 coffins” are just two examples of this discourse demonizing the Sinhalese.

    What kind of videos were shown to you guys when you were in high schools in Toronto under the guise of celebrating Tamil cultural heritage? If you have identity problems growing up in an alien country facing white racism, Sinhalese are not the ones to pay for it. Why don’t you learn to define yourself in terms other than the Tamil – Sinhala binary. Are you nothing if you are not anti-Sinhalese? Looks like you need the Sinhalese to define who you are. It’s pathetic. Try to come up with some positive “Tamil” attributes (if there are such things) to define yourself.

      You need to first find out why Canada, Australia, and many other humanity-concerned nations opened up “refugee application desks” at their embassies in the heart of Colombo in 1983. Was it to entertain applications of Sinhala victims of LTTE blood-thirst? Whose blood-thirst driven repeated events since 1956 lead to such massive emigration as refugees, as the racist regime watched unashamedly?

      Can you name another civilized nation that generated a JVP type of blood-thirst driven rebellion that targeted to kill all seniors (I believe seniors were defined by JVP as 50+ or was it 45+ ?). Can you name another nation that massacred as many thousands of its own youth as Sirimao did first, and Premadasa repeated? MR merely continued, even more so aggressively what his predecessors had planned and started. And, the only killings that caught your eyes and ears were that of LTTE? What a brilliant mind?

I remember watching a youtube video discussion that had you had with a so called “liberal” Canada based Sinhalese group who were arguing against the need for an international investigation. You made your case so eloquently, and the Sinhalese supporter of the GOSL finally lashed out by asking “have you even been to Sri Lanka?” to which I was bewildered to hear you reply “no”. You break my heart man. I’m sure that your time will come. I think that when you finally set foot on a liberated homeland, it will not be an end, but a beginning. You and our generation will have the burden of taking that broken land and leading it to prosperity. None of us can escape that burden. If we do not deliver on that promise, everyone who fought the good fight and dreamt the good dream, but ultimately could not make it across the finish line to set foot on a liberated North East – their lives would be in vain, and we cannot let that happen.

    I always hold the view that those who can win wars are not necessarily good at keeping peace because these two demand for two different levels of courage and honesty. In a rare historical event, it is said that King Dharmashoka’s honesty went through a radical transformation that gave him courage to declare that there is nothing much we win in wars in terms of people’s hearts.

    Back in Sri Lanka, all what I can see is a gulf widening due to a lack of courage and honesty at the level demanded in peacetime.

      Thrishantha though you want to look like an intellectual in SL devoid of racism the reality is you are largely ignorant on what is happening. Peace isn’t necessarily brought by those who win wars, it is brought by those who stop wars. In SL case the ones who stopped the war was the SL government. Stopping the war and giving a chance to return to normalcy is itself is peace. First MR didn’t wage king asoka’s sort of war, he defended a country as its leader. And he wasn’t the one who began it though he brought the end of it.
      Of course communal hatred is rising. This accountability nonsense by the west and targeting SL for getting rid of LTTE is widening the gulf and media like CT is helping that process. CT has done a lot to widen ethnic conflict in SL than even LTTE

    The recent spate of military actions such as the arbitrary arrest of Jayakumari and her daughter and Ruki Fernando and Father Praveen were carried out for the following reasons.

    1. To send a message to UNHRC by the Rajapaksa Cabal. “Keep out of Sri Lankan affairs, we are in power and we can do worse still”.
    2. To send a message to the diaspora by the Rajapaksa CLAN, “Diaspora, don’t jump up too much at the impending UNHRC resolution. We can do many things still to your loved ones”.

    And KS, this message is for you, “please stop needling the Rajapaksa Mafia, they are still capable of doing terrible things to the minorities. There is hardly any opposition in Sri Lanka worth mentioning. You will only bring untold hardships to the already devastated Tamil community and other minorities in Sri Lanka.”

    The Rajapaksa Cabal is sitting pretty over here. They will be signing their own death warrant if they cede power. They know that. They are not going to go away without a fight. And when they fight it will be the hapless Tamils and Muslims who will bear the brunt of their ire. They are well entrenched and the toothless UNHRC will never dislodge the Rajapaksas.

    This is another wake up call for the Tamils and all those who support the 15-16 peaceful organizations who were proscribed by the Rajapakse regime.

    The Rajapakses have conveniently forgotten that the Tamil diaspora remits over 3 Billion dollars in foreign exchange into Sri Lanka, and also purchases goods in the form of groceries, tea and other products to the tune of $800 million dollars.

    The Tamil diaspora also uses Sri Lankan airlines in a big way, and assists the tourist income of Sri Lanka while visiting their homeland and helping their families.

    Tamil Nadu where 70 million Tamils reside is a big source of support to the Island’s shipping business and aviation. If and when there is trade union action against Sri Lanka in Tamil Nadu ports and airports, the Sri Lankan economy would be badly affected. The Indian business community also keeps investing in various other projects in Sri Lanka, and Chief Minister Jayalalitha has not moved so far in curtailing any of the above actions from Tamil Nadu.

    This proscription of the Tamil diaspora organizations is a clear example that the Sinhalese do not want any reconciliation with the Tamils, given the support of people like Dayan Jayatilike which is shameful and disgraceful. May be he is still “singing for his supper” by way of a government job as a diplomat or in Sri Lanka.

    The ball is once again the Tamil diaspora court. Let us see what actions they all collective take, including in Tamil Nadu. Just demonstrations and shouting is totally insufficient.

      If SL cared about economic loss they wouldn’t have conducted the defensive war at all. That is an existential reality for SL. For 30 years SL wasted time, humans because some fools in the west and idiots in SL believes in peace talks with LTTE. Any talks with these diaspora groups are the same as talks with LTTE. SL shouldn’t do that again.
      Indian businessmen don’t invest here out of sympathy but expecting a return and Jayalalitha cannot stop any such thing. Indian is not tamil. If you want stop using Sri Lankan airlines may be switch to Malaysian one who knows you will find yourself in the bottom of sea.

    The Tamil struggle for independence emerged as a reaction to a post-colonial state building process where the leaders of the Sinhalese Nation subjected the Tamils to riots, military aggression, and police brutality while denying them power sharing, employment opportunities, land rights, and access to higher education. Violent repression of peaceful politics compelled Tamil youth to take up arms. Sri Lanka’s war on the Tamil People, branded as a “terrorist problem,” internally displaced thousands. Thousands more were compelled to flee as refugees. We are the children of those refugees.

    Unfortunately, the above is only a very limited partial truth, i.e., largely an untruth. The discrimination of the Tmils by a small upper caste of tamils is well documented and goes far beyond what the Sinhalese could do.

    The more dominant truth was the need of the Landed Aristocracy of the Tamils to safe-guard their estates, their hierarchical power (over the lower castes who provided cheap labour, over women, etc, stemming from the caste system0 from the creeping egalitarianism stemming from the Donoughmore commission, with its one man (or one woman) vote, irrespective of caste or gender.

    This meant that the Ponnambalams, Saravanamuttus, Kandiahs (living in Colobo 7, but holding land in the North), Naganathans, Sampanthans would eventually loose their traditional power unless they separated from Colombo and set up their OWN power base. That was the basis for separation. The Eelam doctrine started two or three decades BEFORE the independence from Britain in 1948.

    Even today, the TNA and the Diaspora are led by land-owning Colombo Lawyers, their kith and kin, or Upper-Caste catholic priests who are at least of the -pillai class.

    Prior to Independence even the Kandyan landed class thought in the same way as the Tamil Landed class, and wantee special devolved powers.
    But the assimilation of the Kandyans by the Low country Sinhalese (who out numbered the Up-country aristocrats) was rapid, with Bandaranaike marrying Ratwattes, and other similar up-low alliances etc.

    The Tamils have lived in Isolation in the North for centuries, while the Tamil Leaders lived in Colombo, India, Malaya, London. Today, the situation is pretty much the same with USA and Australia as additional pastures. The TULF and the tried to seal their land ownership by carving out an exclusive Tamil Homeland, but got usurped by a Terrorist gang that assassinated the TULF leaders and took power for themselves.

    Exclusive land enclaves based on race are a formula that just cannot work in the 21st century — in fact, apartheid (i.e., living apart) already failed in the 20th century.

      Therefore logically there should be larger Sinhala/Buddhist diaspora than the Tamils. If welfare money is easily available then why are the idling husbands sending their spouses to medieval middle east kingdoms instead to these free for all countries?

      Since India, USA and recently Australia have donated several ships to Sri Lankan Navy, Gota and his clan should make use of those vessels to export their surplus idling men to wherever welfare money is handed out to claimants.

      Just because you live under a dictatorship masquerading as a democracy, please don’t sneer at our voting power in the West.

      Democracy is defined as a government of the people, for the people and by the people. Under a true democracy we select our representative who would take up our causes. Under a true democracy we the voting public are the masters and the government our servant. The Sri Lankans live under a feudal rule and not a democracy. Just being able to vote is not democracy, being free to choose your representative and being able to criticise your government are the marks of true democracy.

      Of course the governments in the West take up our causes because we as voting public matter in these countries. In Sri Lanka where the politicians act as feudal lords, and foolish subjects like yourself seem to take pride in that system.

        You say “Under a true democracy we select our representative who would take up our causes”

        I am a Tamil who lives in a Colombo suburb and I feel there is much more democracy now than we ever had from 1960s to 2009. I feel that you should allow US, living in Sri Lanka, to fight our cause which is NOT your cause. Your cause, you can fight for, in Canada or USA or Germany or where ever you are. Our cause is to educate our children, maintain a good standard of living within our culture. I like the vibrant Tamil culture we have, around the Wellavatte, Dehivali and Bampalapitti temples, as well as the cosmopolitan easy-going life in Colombo, without the stifling restrictions of orthodox Hinduism or dominant tamil Catholic Christianity cutting too deeply into our life styes.

        As Murali told the UK prime minster Cameron, you guys are wittingly or unwittingly mislead, and continue to wear blinkers.

        The Rajapaksa regime has many many faults, but they are, I think much less painful than what I hear to be the case with the quasi-dictatorial Harper regime – try to go against it. Heard what happened in Toronto during G20 student protests? How many immigrants have been taser shot by police? Check if your phone is bugged, and if your Mayor is a “Mervin Silva” like figure known as Rob Ford! He is well known even in Sri Lanka because some of you visit here and tell us about the corruption, political high-handedness and madness, racial discrimination that is in Canada.

        The best was to support the Tamils is for you guys living in foreign countries to come and visit this country and HELP IN THE EDUCATION AND HEALTH sphere, and leave politics severely alone. OR, quite your exile and come here and do democratic politics.

        We who have a vote will worry about politics, hand in hand with other citizens of this country. Tamil politics have failed here because we are led by stubborn Colombo lawyers with a lot of hubris and no brains. See how the more politically savvy estate tamils led by Thondaman won all their objectives without decimating themselves! Insteead our upper-caste leaders rejected the Intain tamils, and ejected the Muslims to create “exclusive enclaves”, and demoted the baticaloa Tamils as being one noch lower in the hierarchy. Karuna burnt under his lip and split.
        Our leaders chose to pit a small minority against a majority almost 10 times bigger, thanks to their hubris, while ensuring the safety of their kith and kin that they sent abroad. You guys represent that war-mongering idiot group that has no concern for the Tamils who cannot afford to get out to greener pastures, even in leaky MV Sun Sea type refugee boats. You guys had no concern when the poor Vanni tamils were held hostage by Prabhakaran who had assassinated the TULF leaders and hijacked the genuine nationalist program of the tamils.

        Don’t for a moment think that Cameron or Harper, (or for that matter Jayalalitha) loves Tamils. They just want one thing, getting a vote. See how they treat the Native American people and immigrants – like disposable individuals once the vote is taken.

    Mani,

    ” In Sri Lanka where the politicians act as feudal lords, and foolish subjects like yourself seem to take pride in that system.”

    I wonder what your views were when the Sun God Reined Supreme.
    Either you followed him foolishly or kept quiet due to fear.

    “Under a true democracy we select our representative who would take up our causes. Under a true democracy we the voting public are the masters and the government our servant. “

    Should have given a lesson to your Sun God on this before Nanthikadal.

    Discussing secession is not terrorism; the use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of secession is. Proscribing free speech is a bad idea as opposed to proscribing hate speech. Discussing secession is not hate speech. Banning discussion is the catalyst for stimulating acts of violence. The GOSL has taken a step in the wrong direction once again.

    Leaving the above aside, have the National Council of Canadian Tamils engaged in a lessons learned exercise post 2009 at all? I mean not in the sense of what military mistakes were made but taking a fresh look at the other options available (other than secession), for advancing the aspirations of the Tamil people in Sri Lanka. Wouldn’t that be a logical starting point than trying to hastily resurrect a failed secessionist option?

    Regards

    Rodia in the lanken chair – should finally change the mode. He is the only person who has the authority to do the first step to change – the society.
    Why not through new AMD to the constitution. First building the society then the other steps. When it turns to be one that respect everyone as equal, he could better get them to table and discuss how we have to build up a home grown solution for the ethnic problem: just to be away, as if deaf elephant would do – showing no genuine interests… things will surely become ant become elephant.
    First thing is to implement 17AMD and secure the rights of the people. Senior law professionals and politicians will give him support. Just trying to fish in muddy fields, for own political survival, cant bring us forward. Else, all others that hate the bugger should come to the street to go on weeks long protests against the bugger… enough is enough.

    People from all over the world talking about Sri Lanka. But , they never ever even set their put in Sr Lanka. They do not know that Tamil Diasapora project is Ealam project by terrorists now living in overseas comfortably with the help of human right and asylum slogans. Only thing they want is return to Sri Lanka and start their unfinished terrorist project that is Ealam. We Sri Lankans know what all you wants and where you coming from. You could not winthe war you have started. Now you coming to claim same thing by using international threats and other missions(UN,NGO , human right advocates etc…). If everyone worrying about human right violations , why can not they investigate colonial time war crimes, Iraq invasion, Afganistan massacres , African continent genocide, aborigines killing in Australia and Canada , Syrian and Libian terrorist arming by western nations at first place. Where is Julian asanage and Edward Snowdown? where is the press freedom ? So, please do not preach us.

    You are NOT Diaspora. Over 80% of the Tamils that live abroad live in those countries by choice. Diaspora means displaced people. You are NOT DISPLACED people. You just use that description as a cover. Why don’t you seek your tamil nation in Tamil Nadu where there are more than 67million of you.

      “Why don’t you seek your tamil nation in Tamil Nadu where there are more than 67million of you.”

      I can go along with your explanation and your proposals should be discussed at great length.

      Would that include all those descendants of Kallathnonies both Sinhala speaking Demelas and Tamil speaking Demelas? Please advise us on how best to deal with Aryan speaking Bengali descendants of kallathonies?

      If we agree, hope you agree with me to send back all descendants of Kallatonies, when it would be convenient for you to leave my ancestral land?
