New Delhi mission in Jaffna launches war crimes defender’s poetry projection

[TamilNet, Thursday, 26 September 2013, 13:14 GMT]
New Delhi’s Deputy High Commission in Jaffna will be launching on Monday an anthology of poetry, “Mirrored Images”, compiled by Prof Rajiva Wijesinha, said a press note from the diplomatic mission on Wednesday. Prof Rajiva Wijesinha has gone on record on several occasions in internationally defending the Rajapaksa regime from war crimes accusations. He was often seen coming out with blatant denials of the war crimes committed by the Sri Lankan State. The National Book Trust of India entrusted the editorship of the book to Prof Wijesinha and according to him, the anthology “contributes to the development of a common Sri Lankan identity.” The anthology was first released by New Delhi’s External affairs Minister Salman Khurshid, followed by Colombo’s missions in Canada.

Rajiva Wijesinghe, permanent secretary to the Ministry of Disaster Management and Human Rights
Prof Rajiva Wijesinha, as Permanent Secretary to the Ministry of Disaster Management and Human Rights of Sri Lanka, was in the forefront as spokesperson engaged in denying the war crimes committed by the genocidal State. In 2010, he was a candidate in Mahinda Rajapaksa's UPFA alliance and was appointed as a national list member of Sri Lanka's Parliament. In 2011, he was also appointed as adviser on Reconciliation to Mahinda Rajapaksa.

To get legitimacy in Jaffna for what the New Delhi-Colombo partners are aiming at, New Delhi’s Deputy High Commission in Jaffna is harping on the name of Prof. Chelva Kanaganayagam who had contributed to the publication and the names of some Tamil poets in Jaffna, who have come forward to recite Tamil poetry at the function, said literary circles in Jaffna commenting on the Deputy High Commission press note.

What is further disturbing is the artificial and erroneous Tamil found in the press note of New Delhi’s Deputy High commission in Jaffna, the literary circles added.
