Colombo intensifies demographic genocide in Moothoor, Trincomalee

[TamilNet, Monday, 09 November 2015, 23:51 GMT]
After settling local scores with a corporate outfit associated with the previous regime of Rajapaksa by releasing some of the lands seized from Eezham Tamils in Trincomalee back to the uprooted people from Champoor and making use of the act involved in a larger re-alignment of the geopolitical nexus with external powers that were trading on influencing the OISL recommendations and finally a resolution by ‘consensus’ at UN Human Rights Council in Geneva in October, the current regime of genocidal Sri Lanka has silently intensified the plans to permanently Sinhalicise 1,500 acres of lands that were already seized from Eezham Tamils at Kangkuveali, located southeast of Champoor in Moothoor division of the Trincomalee district.

Eezham Tamil owners of the agricultural lands complain that the SL State is engaged in a large-scale demographic land grab of genocidal proportions through annexing the already seized lands with the Sinhala division of Seruwila.

540 Eezham Tamil families were dependent for their livelihood by engaging in agriculture in the fertile lands situated at Kangku-veali GS division that comes under Moothoor DS division since 1950s. The upper-lying locality has been traditionally known as Padukaadu and Muthalaimadu in Tamil.

After seizing the East from Tamils in 2007, the Sinhala colonisers from Seruvila division had fully occupied the lands from Tamils. The resettling Tamils were assaulted when they attempted to access their agricultural lands.

The Sinhala colonisers were targeting to seize the lands from Tamils after chasing the villagers away since the SL State-sponsored genocidal pogrom against Tamils in 1983.

A Buddhist monk and his relatives from Dehiwatta and Samagipura areas in Seruwila division were assisted by the SL military, the so-called homeguards paramilitary to seize the lands despite a ‘formal’ interim order blocking the illegal occupation, the Tamil people complain.

Akaththiyar Thaapanan, an ancient Siva temple located at Kangku-veali where Hindus gather to perform the Aadi Amaavaasai ritual for ancestors, was destroyed without any traces coinciding the Heroes’ Day on 27 November in 2009.

The Akaththiyar Thaapanam at Kangku-veali is a site mentioned in a local mythological literature called Karaisaip-puraa’nam.

Last year, a group of Sinhalese led by a Buddhist monk were blocking Eezham Tamils of Kangkuveali village to access their ancient temple of Akaththiyar Thaapanam.

Kangkuveali is a large paddy field village in Moothoor. In old Tamil 'veali' itself stands for paddy field. (In Sinhala word formation 'wela' means paddy field.)

Moothoor (Mūtūr), spelt in a number of mutilated ways by the Sinhala and English media of the island, and copied by the international media, simply means ‘the ancient village’ in Tamil.
