Genocidal Sri Lanka, IC abetters, not understood in Latin America, Africa

[TamilNet, Thursday, 04 February 2016, 20:17 GMT]
Latin American Herald Tribune featured an article on Thursday, projecting the so-called independence day of ‘Sri Lanka’ as promoting ‘national reconciliation’ and said: “In the final months of the war from March to May 2009, both the LTTE - which is listed as a terrorist organisation by 32 countries - and the Sri Lankan military were accused of war crimes, including genocide, against civilians. Genocide by both sides is the picture given. Last month, Reuter Africa came out with another story: “Ethnic minority Tamils were often favoured for higher government positions under British colonial rule. After independence in 1948, many lost their positions as successive governments pursued language and other policies favouring the majority Sinhalese population,” the story said.

The Latin American Herald Tribune feature obviously comes from a Sinhala writer, as no one else could have thought of including so many Sinhala words and phrases to Latin American readers.

The feature, beginning and ending with image-building highlights of genocidal Sri Lanka’s foreign minister, Mangala Samaraweera, didn’t miss the rhetoric of Sirisena and Wickremesinghe too.

The message that the genocide-affected nation of Eezham Tamils silently boycotted the day in their country, is suppressed in the din of ‘reconciliation’ hoodwink.

Meanwhile, some sections were overwhelmed to see the function in Colombo ending with the so-called anthem “Sri Lanka Maathaa” sung in Tamil.

But the reality was bared when a senior Buddhist monk of the leading Malwatte Chapter, objected to that in Kandy, saying that attempts to sing the National Anthem in Tamil is an unwelcome move and it could not be approved.

“In our country we cannot imagine where things will end if the National Anthem is allowed to be sung in Tamil,” added the Deputy Mahanayaka of the largest Buddhist Chapter, as cited by the Colombo media, The Island.

Bringing in the example of the Indian national anthem, the monk perhaps had no idea that the anthem is not in Hindi and it includes today's Pakistan and Bangladesh as well. It was just the British design of keeping away Ceylon from the colonial India Ministry in London that had conditioned Tagore in not including the island in his list of regions in the anthem.

However, Tamils have to be thankful to this monk and respect his sentiments for the Sinhala nation to have its anthem exclusive.

But unfortunately it is not ‘approved’ by the outside elements adamant in devouring the cake in full; deny nations to both the Sinhalese and Eezham Tamils, and in the process have designed the genocidal State long back and continue it into the future also.

It is precisely this reality that has to be told to the world humanity. But, even the Tamil activists lured to look upon justice coming from the very culprits are not telling it to the world.

If Latin America and Africa are successfully kept in dark or misled from grasping the realities, who else could grasp it from a shared plane, responded Tamil activists for alternative politics in the island.
