Address the root cause to end suffering: Vidyananda alumni

[TamilNet, Thursday, 23 October 2008, 20:13 GMT]
"It is our earnest feeling that the fundamental issue of our status as a nation, precisely on the question of which we are put to untold sufferings for ages by the successive Colombo governments, has to be addressed with priority and with urgency by the Indian government," reads a request from the alumni (Norway) of the Mu'l'liyava'lai Vidyananda College of Vanni, made on Thursday to the political parties of Tamil Nadu. Indian recognition of Eezham Tamil self-determination is the fundamental effective measure to discourage war and to lead to peace negotiations, the request said.

The Government of India's present stand of reiterating political solution within a united Sri Lanka is misleadingly understood by the Sinhala masses and is politically exploited by their politicians for an undue advantage to continue war and subject the masses of Tamil national sentiments for their genocidal agenda, the request pointed out.

The request signed by V Sivaraja, and A Thiyagaraja, the president and secretary of the association, thanked profusely the Tamil brethren and the political parties of Tamil Nadu for the efforts taken up in support of the cause of Eezham Tamils.

Vidyananda College is one of the most prestigious institutions, situated in the Mu'l'liyava'lai village, which is traditionally regarded as a cultural centre of the Mullaiththeevu district of Vanni region. The college has produced a number of scholars, writers, artistes and folklorists, who for the first time, have brought out the cultural profile of Vanni to the outside world.
