Sinhala military takes over Muslim cemetery at Pulmoaddai

[TamilNet, Saturday, 03 August 2013, 18:29 GMT]
Even the sole Muslim cemetery in Pulmoaddai at the narrow border between the North and East of the country of Ezham Tamils was not spared from appropriation by the occupying Sinhala military that bents on Sinhalicising and militarizing the strategic link. While the Tamil-speaking Muslims, who make 90 per cent of the traditional village of Pul-moaddai is left without a cemetery, about 500 acres of land in that place has been given to a Buddhist monk to build a Sinhala-Buddhist enclave. The military and Survey Department of the Sinhala State were openly involved in the project. The blatant demographic genocide takes place while there is a Muslim Chief Minister in the East, proving what is ultimately aimed by the Provincial Councils backed by New Delhi and Washington, political activists in the East said.

The Muslim cemetery of the coastal village is appropriated by the occupying Sinhala State Navy.

Apart from the cemetery, Muslim lands in the village are also taken over on a massive scale, news sources said.

Last week, a meeting was held in the office of the chief minister of the Eastern Provincial Council to discuss the ongoing appropriation of lands belonging to Muslims in Pulmoaddai.

But the provincial system may not be able to do any thing political observers said.

Pul-moaddai (meaning grassy pond), situated at a sandbar on the side of the Eastern Province of the North-East border, is not only a must location from the genocidal point of view, but is also a place of significant economic importance because of the ilmanite deposits found there beneath the white sand dunes.

During the genocidal war, the military of the New Delhi Establishment had a station there ostensibly for the purpose of medical assistance, but actually to coordinate monitoring.

It is likely that the international Establishments are interested in militarizing Pul-moaddai. But as they have no choice other than promoting Sinhala military, the structural genocide taking place at Pul-moaddai and throughout the country of Ezham Tamils also cannot be stopped, unless masses take up the struggle in different dimensions, making it inevitable for the involved powers to deliver justice, political observers in the island commented.
