Reconciling genocidal Sri Lanka is outdated game of imperialism

[TamilNet, Friday, 28 August 2015, 00:39 GMT]
The historical contribution of Lakshman Kadirgamar was convincing the West, on behalf of the Colombo-centric genocidal formation that the national struggle of Eezham Tamils is the prime impediment or opportunity to act in negativeness, for the successful re-entry of the West into the region. After deceiving the nation of Eezham Tamils into second ‘Mu'l'livaaykkaal’ by treading on any international justice to them, Tony Blair, who was the British Prime Minister during the first genocidal onslaught, defended the second one too on Monday, choosing the occasion to deliver Lakshman Kadirgamar Memorial Address in Colombo. All the imperialisms of the West considered Colombo as the pivotal point to enter into the region even though they had headquarters in Goa, Batavia (Jakarta), Tranquebar, Pondicherry and Calcutta. The reason was the fear or inferiority complex about the larger subcontinent.

It was the legacy of this thinking that made the British to treat Ceylon as a unitary State different from their British Empire in India, to condition the Sinhala-Buddhist ‘majority’ with contempt and phobia about India and to eventually hand over power in 1948 to the Colombo-centric coastal Sinhalese, whom the British considered as the most collaborative formation for them in the island.

Mr Tony Blair at the Kadirgamar Institute was highlighting on Northern Ireland and was harping on unitary state solutions.

The underlying intention has to be carefully understood in the region of South Asia, and the impracticality of continuing an old and failed legacy, defying the norms of the post-modern world, has to be understood in the West.

Why should they again and again have the selective theoretical bankruptcy of harping on a united or unitary State for the island of genocidal context that historically defied solutions under a single State, is the primary question.

The reasons have to be understood in between the lines and above the semblance of sanity professed by people like Tony Blair, if the struggle for justice has to take its course.

If there is going to be a real international investigation ever in the future, Mr Tony Blair is one of the prime persons, who has to go through it. His sermons in Colombo, coming around with the same agenda, cannot touch the heart of the affected nation that has to be reconciled. Perhaps, he doesn't care for it, as the present agenda is to once again groom the Colombo-centric formation.

The reconciliation could come, and the hearts could be mutually reached out, if the Sinhala military that killed and raped Tamils for decades sees the lascarine role it played to imperialisms and turns against the ultimate culprits and their agent State in Colombo. Is that okay for Tony Blair, if the concern is really on ‘reconciliation’?

Tony Blair spent two weeks in Colombo this month, at a time when the US agenda of ditching any international investigation on the affairs of the island into domestic mechanism, was being formulated.

His address at the Kadirgamar Institute has to be carefully perused in India, where the tendency is to blindly copy the old British outlook of its own interest.

The imperialism-centered deceptions in the speech have to be understood by the Eezham Tamil diaspora as well, in preparing for the future course of the struggle, which inevitably is going to be of international dimensions, commented Tamil activists for alternative politics in the island.
