Can the new King of Sri Lanka bring deliverance to the Tamils? [Jan. 22nd, 2010|11:00 pm]

Can the new King of Sri Lanka bring deliverance to the Tamils?


From North to the South, West to the East, the skies of Sri Lanka are now filled with the empty and virtual deceptive promises of two desperate presidential candidates. While the Sri Lankan politicians are beating their drums, While the so called war heroes of the nation are busy launching mudslinging campaigns against each other, while the strategic think tanks with geopolitical interests are making last minute manoeuvres to influence the outcome of the election, while the local business leaders, industrialists and bankers are speculating the election results, Sri Lankan Tamils are still on their knees praying what they have always prayed "Deliver is from the evil one"

Their voices are suppressed. They have lost their strength to fight back the oppression. But their heart cries are obvious. "Free thousands of our loved ones who are going through hunger and torture in the notorious Sri Lankan prisons,", "Give us back our homes and lands", "Give us the freedom to work in our own farms and fish in our own waters", "Stop abducting our sons and daughters" "stop abusing, torturing, raping and murdering our children", "Stop destroying our culture", "Give us back the freedom that we were all born with as humans on this planet"

Can the new King of Sri Lanka bring deliverance to the Tamils? If we look at the history of Sri Lanka particularly in the last sixty five years, the answer to this question will be quite obvious.


Sri Lankan Tragedy

Those who argue that Sri Lanka has finally brought an end to the Asia's  longest running conflict, are not only ignorant but making a blunder by indirectly supporting the dangerous regimes in Sri Lanka that are determined to wipe out a race from the face of this earth. Torture, murder and rape against the minority Tamils, abductions, summary executions, forced colonizations of Tamil lands, extension of military bases in Tamil areas even in the absence of war and various human rights abuses, have made this country as an island of hell.

Sri Lankan rulers use a simple binary logic that their categorise anyone who oppose their extremist policies and human rights violations as terrorists. They are able to see only two types of humans on this planet. Those who are with them or those who are against them. Since they identify the ones who disagree with them as terrorists, Sri Lanka has in many instances blamed Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, Red Cross and many other humanitarian organisations as terrorist sympathisers. David Miliband, Hillary Clinton and many other western leaders were blamed as terror supporters. This is exactly like how the Al Qaeda blames the western countries as terror states and their leaders as terrorists.

Sri Lanka uses the same logic for the innocent Tamils who are fleeing for their lives in boats and ships to foreign shores. They blame the fleeing children and pregnant women as terrorists. Only crime they had committed was that they cried when their fathers and brothers were brutally murdered and they objected when their mothers and sisters were raped.

What make things worse in Sri Lanka are not just the atrocities carried out by the fascist forces but the compromise made by some international elements, who have decided to support the criminals but turned a blind eye to the victims. They danced when the war criminals sang, and hid their faces in the sand when thousands of innocents were murdered in cold blood. UN, who is supposed to be a guardian for the oppressed and vulnerable in the world, had in fact assisted Sri Lanka in mass murdering innocent Tamils, simply by ignoring the cries of the dying at the crucial hours.

Sri Lankan Tragedy is also about an unfair world that is letting the murderers and rapists to walk on red carpets but ignoring the plight of the innocents that are languishing in torture camps and prisons.

Sri Lankan conflict is sometime quite a complex one to understand not because the conflict itself is complex but, corrupt politicians, career minded journalists, biased terror experts, countries with geopolitical interests and those who are short sighted have twisted the stories that many in the world don't exactly know what has been going on in Sri Lanka.

Those who are responsible for the misery in Sri Lanka for years have been successful in hiding the root cause of the problem in order to continue with their own agendas.

While many are doing this deliberately, there are also people including some Tamils tend to misinterpret the crisis in Sri Lanka, by looking and analyzing isolated incidents or judging various parties to the conflict based on their personal experiences.


Shocking Video from UK Channel 4 Television

Blind folded, hands tied behind their backs, naked, on their knees, not knowing what was happening around but hearing just the sounds of Sinhala soldiers mocking and laughing, occasional gun shots. What could have gone through the minds of these young Tamil men in their final hours? They were executed in a most cruel manner just for a simple reason that they were Tamils.

Their mothers bore them in pain, gave birth to them in pain, fed them from their breasts and toiled for years to bring them up. Their children found safety and protection in their arms. These were ordinary men who had dreams about their future. Just like any of us, they also wanted to see their children growing up. They trusted the world around them to come for their rescue even at their last minutes. But their lives were cut short. They were looked down by their enemies as rotten pieces of meat that don't even need proper burial.

 

 Channel 4 UK : Tamils being executed by Sri Lankan Soldiers. Thousands were slaughtered like this in the land of Terror

This is not a bedtime horror story. This is not about something that happened thousands of years ago when giants and barbarians roamed the earth. This is not a Hollywood movie about man eating cannibals. What Channel 4 had shown in UK is a real story of a people group called Tamils in the horror island of Sri Lanka.

Many were shocked and felt so sick in and out after seeing the video clips of Tamils being executed as innocent lambs in broad day light. Strangely many Tamils living in the West haven't found it as shocking because they have witnessed hundreds and hundreds of such incidents in their own villages and towns. Their eyes had seen their loved ones being butchered with knives, swords, guns and bombs.They saw their houses being burned down and farms being destroyed.

They saw their sisters and mothers being abused and raped. Their fathers were shot and killed in front of weeping children and mothers. Their loved ones and friends were killed in prisons, schools, hospitals and in their own homes. Tamils in Sri Lanka no longer have a voice and they no longer have the right to turn left or right. They see their enemies marching from the North, South, East and the West. A community that once fought for equal rights is now fighting for its bare survival.

Interestingly, Sri Lankan war criminals who have been committing such deadly crimes are not all happy about the world watching what they do to the vulnerable. They have no way to defend their atrocities so they just deny the video as fake. UN investigators have confirmed that the video was authentic.

What was shown on channel 4 is just a drop in the ocean. Many eyes in Sri Lanka have witnessed crimes that were much crueller than this. Thousands of digital pictures and video clips, many satellite images and other concrete evidences are available to prove without a shadow of doubt that Sri Lankan regime is still committing countless crimes against the Tamil community in Sri Lanka with the excuse of fighting terror.

What was shown on the British TV is what happened to many innocent civilians who were trying to escape the war zone and decided to get into the government controlled territory. The whole world had witnessed how the Sri Lankan regime was pretending like saviours of Tamils but engaged in killing innocent Tamils in thousands. This video clip is an answer to many who questioned why Tamils were not willing to go into the government controlled area during the War in Vanni. Tamils see the Sri Lankan soldiers as killer demons and not as liberators.

Story of Sri Lanka in the last sixty five years is simply the repetitions of hundreds and thousands of similar horrific events at different scales. 99% of the perpetrators were either Sri Lankan military or extremist Sinhala mobs and 99% of the victims were innocent Tamils.

 
Armageddon in Tamil land, War on the Innocents

Although Sri Lanka claimed that it was fighting a war with the Tamil rebels, guns and bombs were in fact turned against innocent Tamil civilians. Sri Lankan forces killed more than fifty thousands just within few months.

More than four hundred thousands innocent Tamil civilians including pregnant mothers, babies, young, old and sick were chased out of their own homes, bombed, shelled, starved and let to run for their lives for months. Fighter air crafts over the skies of Vanni dropped bombs on hospitals, schools and all other public places to target the civilians. Food and medicine were denied to the hungry and sick. Many were bleeding on the streets and inside bunkers and experienced painful slow death. Flesh of Tamils became food for stray dogs and wild beasts.

  

 Fellowship of the dead, This was not an earth quake. Thousands of innocent Tamils were killed by Sri Lankan military

Despite international pressure, Sri Lankan government continued with the war. China and Pakistan were supplying unlimited weapons and ammunitions to the Sri Lankan military.

It is difficult to finds words to describe the horror that happened in the last few days of the war. Thousands were forced into a tiny strip of land. Men, women and children were hiding inside the bunkers without food and water. Sri Lankan military was firing from Tanks and multi barrel rocket launchers, in all the directions. Phosphorous and cluster bombs were dropped from the skies.

 As the cries of dying women and children were shaking the earth, Sri Lankan military used maximum fire power to kill several thousands Tamils every single day. While the wounded were crying for water to wet their tongues, military tanks rolled over them. Wounded and the sick who were hiding in the bunkers were buried alive. Those who surrendered with white flags were executed in cold blood. Petrol and chemicals were poured over the tents and dead bodies.

 

 Left alone. Many children have lost their parents.

Thick dark smoke rose to the skies. The whole world stood back and watched as the demons from hell descended over Vanni and danced in the lake of blood.

Reporters and journalists are still not allowed to the area where the Armageddon took place even after several months. Sri Lankan rulers are not prepared to show to the world what they did to the innocents with their ugly heads and cruel hands.

 
Battle is over but the oppression continues

Sri Lankan government claims that it has brought an end to the conflict. But the Tamils in Sri Lanka haven't yet found the freedom that they have been longing for years. They are still like Jews that were in the hands of Hitler and Bosnian Muslims who were persecuted by Serbian extremists.

Generations come and generations go. Life becomes better and better for many people in the world. But the Tamils, whose standard of living was better than Singaporeans and South Koreans forty years ago, are now living below the poverty line. They now wander like vagabonds as many have lost their homes.

Sri Lanka is still recruiting more people for the military and extending military bases in the North and East of the country. Tamil children are surrounded by uniformed soldiers with guns and bombs twenty four hours a day. Tamil women are daily harassed, intimidated and abused by the Sinhala soldiers.

More than eleven thousands youth that were arrested by the Sri Lankan authorities have still not been released. Even the Red Cross are not allowed to see the detainees. Many families still haven't found out where their sons and daughters are. Thousands of families have lost their entire livelihood but they are not provided with any help to re-establish their lives.

Abductions and killings of Tamils are still continuing. Few months ago, a Tamil youth was beaten to death by Sinhala police officers in the city of Colombo. This happened in broad day light, in front of spectators and television cameras.

Many Tamils are risking their lives by fleeing the country on damaged boats and ships. Sri Lankan rulers are not only persecuting the Tamils in Sri Lanka but also making the lives miserable for those who are fleeing to other countries.

 

 Tamil men, women and children fleeing in ships with fear of persecution

Agents of Sri Lanka, some of them who work as pseudo terror experts and journalists in other countries are demonising the Tamils who are struggling for their survival even in the seas. These fake experts continue to deceive the international community by identifying every Tamil child, mother and father as terrorists.

Some Sri Lankan senior cabinet ministers are seeking access to the fleeing refugees so that they can torment the victims even outside Sri Lanka. No laws in the world would allow the persecutors to meet the their fleeing victims in foreign soil or in international waters unless these foreign countries are also having worst human rights records as Sri Lanka who have no respect for the law.

  

Who are the real Terrorists in Sri Lanka?

The words “Terrorism” and "Terrorists" are mostly misunderstood words in the world today. Regimes in Iran and North Korea call the Western countries as terror states. Majority of us will not agree with Iran or North Korea. Developments of destructive weapons in these two countries are not just posing danger to the neighbouring nations but to the entire world.

Sri Lanka has been playing the same game for many years but it has taken quite a while for many of us to understand the reality. Sri Lankan rulers have been successful in hiding their crimes against the Tamil minorities and exaggerating the Tamil resistance. Sri Lanka spends millions of dollars in propaganda to justify, hide and deny the atrocities against the Tamil minorities

Now Sri Lanka has started to blame international aid organisations, international rights organisations, and western democracies as terror entities. One should question if many of us have been right in taking the same view of Sri Lanka by blaming the Tamil resistance against the Sinhala Chauvinism as Terrorism.

If we consider terrorism as a destructive act against innocent people and their properties, a simple statistics about Sri Lanka would show us who the real terrorists are and why we should believe in the fact that terrorism is still destroying the lives of people in Sri Lanka and the culprits are Sri Lankan rulers who continue to harbour racist and extremist views.

Even a primary school child with simple mathematical skills would not just be able to understand the deadly conflict in Sri Lanka but also would be able to identify who the real victims are and who the culprits are, just by looking at these simple and obvious facts.

In the last sixty years more than three hundred thousands Tamils died in Sri Lanka. They were killed by bombs, guns, swords and knives. Many Tamils went through physical abuse, torture, isolation and rape in the hands of the Sinhala soldiers before their death. Thousands of Tamil women were raped. More than fifty thousands were maimed. Many thousands have become orphans and windows. More than a million had to flee the country in order to save the lives.

Majority of the homes, schools, public libraries, churches, temples and hospitals in the North and East of the country have all been destroyed by the bombs and shells fired by the Sri Lankan military. Most of the lands where Tamils lived are now looking like giant grave yards.

Sri Lankan military has caused a great environmental disaster in Tamil lands by uprooting millions of trees and destroying the wild life.

In the middle of the last century, More than 30% percentage of the population in Sri Lanka was Tamil speaking (Indigenous Tamils, Upcountry Tamils and Muslims). This has now been reduced to 20%.

More than 20% of the land that was originally belonged to the Tamils were forcefully be taken away and given to the Sinhalese. Hundreds of Tamil villages and roads were turned into Sinhala villages and their names have been changed to Sinhala.

30% of the Tamil land is currently occupied by Sri Lankan Sinhala soldiers.

Tamils were once the majority in two eastern districts but they have already become minority as the successive Sri Lankan governments have been changing the demographics in Tamil districts by implementing Sinhala settlements.

These are just facts that speak for themselves. Racist Sri Lankan regimes have persecuted the Tamils for a long time and they have also been very successful in ethic cleansing in the last sixty years.


Root cause of the Conflict, Mother of All the Evils

 It is a sad reality that many international think tanks haven't either still identified the root cause of the Sri Lankan conflict or they are deliberately ignoring it in order to fulfil their own hidden agendas.

Sinhala Chauvinism is the mother of all the evils that is destroying this beautiful country. It is built on ignorance, arrogance, jealousy, insecurity, anger, lies and deceptions. This is a dangerous disease that has blinded the hearts and minds of the extremists. Sinhala Chauvinism or Sinhala Buddhist extremism can be compared to Nazism.

Sinhala Chauvinism is nothing to do with the ordinary Sinhala people. This is not even to do with the Sri Lankan military although they have incidentally become the tools and weapons of the extremist, racist and corrupt religious and political leaders.

Many Sinhala people are peace loving and in fact there are many Sinhala intellectuals, journalists, human rights activists and people from all walks of life, are fighting for the oppressed Tamil people and some have even laid down their lives for their fellow humans.

Buddhism in Sri Lanka has been hijacked by the extremists and what we see today in Sri Lanka is a perverted version of Buddhism. Perverted religions are most dangerous ingredients for deadly conflicts all around the world.

Christianity, Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism talk about peace and harmony among the inhabitants of this earth. They preach about tolerance, peace and respect for others. Unfortunately, we have seen so many religious wars in the world and the root cause of them were not the religions in pure forms but their perverted versions.

Rise of Al Qaeda in the west, Violence by extreme Hindus in India, War between Catholics and Protestants, Sinhala Buddhists extremists destroying churches in Sri Lanka are all showing the dangerous signs of religious perversion and religious extremism.

As opposed to many people think, Sri Lanka hasn't got a genuine democracy. Sri Lanka is in reality, indirectly ruled by a violent religious Buddhist cult that preaches and practices hatred against the Tamils. Ordinary Sinhala Buddhist people are brainwashed by Buddhist clergies. Political parties that support such extreme racist policies are selected by the majority Sinhala people as the rulers. Rulers of Sri Lanka come up with discriminative policies to stay in power and to satisfy the hunger of those who want to see the land free of Tamils.

Sinhalese and Tamils in Sri Lanka have both been living there for more than two thousands years. The sad reality is that the Sinhala Buddhists want to make Sri Lanka as a Sinhala Buddhist country which means they want the Tamils out or continue to treat Tamils as second class citizens.


 Psychology behind Racism

Racists are the most foolish people on this earth because they either perceive that they are superior to others or they imagine that their survival, quality of life and social status are threatened by another race. They wouldn't be able to digest, when someone with another colour, religion or race prosper in front of their eyes.

Ignorance, insecurity, jealousy, pride, selfishness, greed and all the evils come together and make people to hate those who are not like them. Mugabe chasing out White farmers in Zimbabwe, Extremist Serbians killing the Bosnian Muslims, Hitler massacring the Jews and Sinhalese killing the Tamils are all telling us the same story.

Current unrest in Sri Lanka can be traced back to the middle of the last century when Tamils were comparatively doing well in education and business. Sinhala extremists in Sri Lanka couldn’t digest the fact that Tamils still being a minority, dominating education and business. Since 1950, almost every ten years, Tamils were killed in thousands and their properties were burned to ashes. These attacks were always masterminded by the Sinhala rulers who were in power.

In the last thirty years, with the excuse of War on Terror, Sri Lanka has managed to destroy most of the homes, Schools, libraries, hospitals, factories and farms in the Tamil areas. Sri Lankan Tamils who were once, one of the most literate and prosperous people groups in the South East Asia is now fighting for their bare survival.


How is the world responding?

As usual, the geopolitical interest of other countries in Sri Lanka is one of the main reasons why this conflict has been dragging on for years. Corrupt Sri Lankan leaders easily become puppets of the foreign governments. Sri Lanka is located on strategically important sea route that is vital for the security of many countries.

It has now gone beyond an acceptable level that human rights abuses are sending shock waves across the world. Even the ones that were once supporting this country are now at least pretending to be neutral to save their own skins.

Sri Lanka is ranked as South Asias No.1 human rights violator. Sri Lanka scored the highest negative points for the right to life, the rights of the child, attacks on human rights defenders and violations of the rights of the minorities. On press freedom, Sri Lanka was ranked second worse only after Bhutan — which has no independent press. Sri Lanka was ranked number 97 in an index compiled by Transparency International, an anti corruption watchdog, in 2009.

Dublin war-crimes tribunal, conducted by Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal (PPT) based in Milan, which held hearings on 14th and 15th of January 2010 has found that Sri Lanka Government is "guilty of War-Crimes" and "guilty of Crimes Against Humanity." Eye witnesses included several escapees from the final week of Sri Lanka offensive in the Mullaitivu "No Fire Zone" where more than thousands of innocent Tamil civilians were allegedly slaughtered by Sri Lanka Army with heavy weapons.

The U.S. Department of State‘s Office of War Crimes has recently released its investigation into the final stage of the conflict in Sri Lanka.

It was based on a wide range of sources, including Amnesty International's own reporting, and uses both traditional and innovative evidence such as satellite imagery and aerial photographs. This report provides a disturbing overview of what happened in the so-called “No-Fire Zone”.

The European Commission has decided to suspend Sri Lanka's preferential trade status following a probe criticising the island's human rights record. The suspension follows a year-long European Commission probe that concluded that the Sri Lankan government was in breach of commitments on human rights and good governance that come with the preferential trade status.

Commonwealth has decided not to host the next summit in Sri Lanka. If the situation doesn't improve, suspension of this country from Commonwealth is another possibility.

International community should continue to take tough measures like economic embargoes and war crime inquiries to make sure that this country won’t slip further into darkness and the culprits are brought to justice. These steps are necessary to convince the people of Sri Lanka that they will be isolated from the world if they continue elect leaders who chose the path of extremism and violence instead of path of peace.


How does Sri Lanka defend its atrocities?

Non-compliance, denials, refusals, justifications, blackmailing and other techniques are used by countries like Sri Lanka to escape justice.

Sri Lanka is simply a rock state that no longer has any respect for human rights. Leaders of this country are only interested in fulfilling their racist agendas and to satisfy their own greed.

Sri Lankan government regularly appoint individuals with doctorates and other higher degrees as cabinet ministers and propaganda activists to lobby in the UN and in foreign countries. Many of them speak in fluent English and having citizenships in other western countries and their main role is to justify the atrocities that are committed by the Sri Lankan government. These individuals are experts in blaming the victims and protecting the criminals.

Sri Lankan government also has their own pseudo terror experts working in foreign soils and their main role is to defend the Sri Lankan government and to identify anyone that opposes the Sri Lankan government as terrorist. Sri Lanka spends millions on propaganda and to pay for consultants and propaganda firms that are working round the clock to hide or justify the atrocities committed by the rulers of Sri Lanka.

  

Can the new King of Sri Lanka bring deliverance to the Tamils?

 In the last sixty years three hundred thousands were slaughtered, several thousands were raped, tortured, imprisoned and disappeared in Sri Lanka. More than a million have fled the country with the fear of persecution. 99% of the victims were Tamils and 99% of the perpetrators were Sri Lankan military personal or members of Buddhist Sinhala extremist groups. One doesn't need to be a rocket scientist to understand what is going on in this country.

Freedom is a God given right to every living human on this earth. Tamils in Sri Lanka, Muslims in Bosnia, Jews in Jerusalem, Hindus in Pakistan, Christians in North Korea, Blacks in France, Whites in Zimbabwe and Aboriginals in Australia should all be enjoying the same rights as any other people groups on this planet.

Nazism, Sinhala Chauvinism, Racism, Fascism, you can name them how you like, but these are all manifestations of a social evil, that destroy lives.

The madness that is going on this country can only be stopped by destroying the demon of ignorance from the hearts and minds of those who rejoice in hatred and violence against their follow citizens. This is not a battle against flesh and blood but against the forces of darkness clouding over this nation

Unless the civilised world stand against the perpetrators of human rights abuses, war criminals and corrupt politicians in Sri Lanka, unless we stop dancing to the tunes played by Sri Lankan rulers, unless we confront the agents of Sri Lanka who have been deceiving the international community through lies and deceptions, unless we stop doing business with Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka will continue to persecute its minorities with the blessing of those who are determined to be on the wrong side just to satisfy their own greed.

Governments come and go but there is no end to the suffering of Tamils in this Island. No matter who comes to power, the root cause of the conflict will again be ignored by the rulers of Sri Lanka deliberately to keep the majority happy. Unless the root cause of the ethnic problem is dealt with, Sri Lanka will face another wave of violence that could even be detrimental to the peace and stability in the whole South East Asia.

The Time of Judgement has arrived to the Land of Terror [Jul. 12th, 2009|08:20 pm]
[Tags|, , , , ]



International legal systems have so far failed to bring the Sri Lankan War Criminals to justice. It is time for the average Joe, an ethical shopper to say No to “Holiday Packages to Sri Lanka”, No to “Sri Lankan Airlines”, No to “Sri Lankan Cricket”, No to “Ceylon Tea”, No to “Garments or any other products made in Sri Lanka” and No to any “Organisations having commercial interests in Sri Lanka” until Sri Lanka stop the killings of the innocents with it's death squads, until the last person is set free from the death camps of Sri Lanka, until the people of Sri Lanka start to live without the fear of abductions, torture, rape and murder by the Sri Lankan State and its armed forces, Until Sri Lanka starts to treat all its citizens equally with dignity and give them the rights they deserve”

 Money goes into the hands of Sri Lanka are now used to destroy individuals, families and communities therefore, it is rational, ethical, sensible and right to stop supporting a country that is determined continue with its genocide agenda, despite calls from the international community”

 

 

Death and destruction in a Terror Island

Fifty thousand innocent men, women and children were brutally murdered on the sandy beaches and in the jungles of Sri Lanka, by the Sri Lankan Military while the whole world stood back and watched.

Three hundred thousands are now locked up in the death camps of Sri Lanka. Men are tortured, Women are abused and raped, Children are psychologically tormented, foreign media is banned, aid workers are blocked and the Tamils are now let to die like flies without proper food, medicine and water. Dead bodies are thrown outside the tents and let to rot while the young and old stand in the hot sun for hours to beg for food.




They are let to languish behind barbed wires

Times UK has recently reported that fourteen hundreds are dying every week in the horror camps manly due to wateborne diseases and many preventable illnesses. The rate at which people are dying now, the whole camp will be empty just in three years time. Many who are prisoned in these camps have relatives and friends living in other parts of the country and overseas, who are willing to help.

Sri Lankan government is so adamant that it is not helping the dying Tamils and also not letting others to help.

Purpose of these Nazi style camps is to cause death and maximum destruction to an oppressed and vulnerable Tamil community that is now pleading to the Nations for help. Few camps are purposefully built for propaganda purposes in order to deceive the international community.

 

 

Horrors in Sri Lanka are sending shock waves across the World

Torture, murder, rape, forced starvation, and all kind of human rights violations in the concentration camps of Sri Lanka, are now sending shock waves across the world.

Deportations of Western reporters, Journalists and Politicians from the Sri Lankan Airport and denial of access to the death camps of Sri Lanka for aid workers are showing the face of rebellious country that is willing go to any extent to defy international humanitarian laws.

Western countries have recently been pressurising Sri Lanka to stop the abuses and State sponsored killings. US, Britain and France including many other European countries are taking all the necessary measures to send strong messages to Sri Lanka.

US $1.9 Billion IMF loan to this country is now delayed. Sri Lanka had been denied a seat on UN Human Rights Council. US are delaying aid to the displaced people till the Sri Lankan government give free access to the camps.

There are also talks about suspending Sri Lanka from the commonwealth

 

 

 

Can an average Joe make a difference?

I have written few articles on the subject of Sri Lankan civil war. One of the popular questions, I received from the readers was “What can the average Joe do other than writing a letter to the local MP?”

While our international legal systems are still failing to bring the culprits to justice, Average Joe might probably be in a better position to send a powerful message to countries like Sri Lanka. Joe should see and understand the bigger picture of what is happening in Sri Lanka before start doing anything about the injustice done against the innocents.

Joe living in the West is a consumer just like many other millions around the world. Any marketing professional would know about the Power of a Consumer. Joe is an ethical shopper, who has the freedom to choose where to go on a holiday, which airline to fly with, where to buy his cloths and who to bank with. Joe can meet up with many like minded people and persuade his government to stop playing sports with countries that are persecuting its people. Joe is now on the net. He has access to email, facebook, twitter and many other social networking sites. He can share his views with millions around the world.

Even a great nation like China needs to sell its products in the world market in order to feed its people. Sri Lanka that is acting arrogantly with many countries should know, that it can't keep on killing the innocents and expect the people to buy their products and services that are covered in blood.

Joe along with millions around the world should be able to convince the People of Sri Lanka that they are not safe in the hands of corrupt regimes that are even prepared to sell the soul of a nation to satisfy the cravings of the Sinhala Buddhist extremists whose only goal is to wipe out Tamils.

Sri Lanka for Dummies” is a simple Introduction to Sri Lanka and Sri Lankan war for the average Joe to get an understanding of the man made humanitarian crisis in this little island.

Sri Lanka in a Nutshell

Sri Lanka is a tiny tropical island that was known as the pearl of the Indian Ocean and paradise on earth. This country was once very popular among the tourists but not any more.

Rulers of this country have made this place as one of the most dangerous places to visit and live on this planet. The US has recently given serious warnings to its citizens about the dangers of travelling to Sri Lanka. Westerners are no longer welcome there. Journalists and high profile diplomats are regularly deported back from the Colombo international Airport. The recent victims were Channel 4 TV journalists and Bob Rae who was once the Premier of Ontario Canada. Western embassies are frequently attacked by angry local mobs. British and Canadian High commissions became the latest targets.

Sri Lanka is a graveyard for journalists. Sri Lankan Government is using underground Mafia and death squads to abduct, torture and kill journalists, aid workers and any individuals who are critical of the government. Doctors and journalists are locked up in prisons but the evil ones are rewarded and let to roam around the streets with knives and guns.



Journalist Tissainayagam in chains. Telling the truth is a crime in Sri Lanka


Tamils are the prime targets but even foreigners, Sinhalese and Muslims are not the exceptions. This country is now at the bottom of the list in terms of human rights.

Sri Lanka has murdered fourteen journalists in the last few years. More than twenty journalists have been forced out of the country. Many are locked up in jails. Newspapers are burned, TV stations are attacked, and News web sites are blocked. Even BBC and CNN had received warnings in the past from the controversial defence secretary of the country. Sri Lanka only allows reporters who write well about the government.



Senior editor and Journalist Lasantha Wickramatunga was brutally murdered by the government backed mafia

 

Five medical doctors, who are praised as real heroes by the international community for their tireless work during the Sri Lankan war, are now locked up in Sri Lankan jails for speaking the truth from the war zone. Sri Lankan rulers have recently paraded these doctors in front of television cameras and forced them make false statements to support the government. This is another foolish attempt by a murderous regime to hide the war crimes it had committed .We all know how Al Qaeda had paraded western hostages on TV in the past and forced them to say things that were not true.

In Sri Lanka, People disappear from their homes, schools, work places and hospitals like flies. It is not the fulfilment of rapture that is taking place according to the book of Revelation in the Bible. But the Sri Lankan regime has mastered the art of using white vans to abduct and kill anyone who is dare to question the conducts of the government.

Half burned dead bodies with hands tied at the back is a typical scene, one would be able to see quite often in Sri Lanka. Killer demons regularly come on mysterious white vans without number plates on them.

A typical Sri Lankan leader would talk like he has the whole world under his feet and he doesn’t care about outside opinions. Many of us remember the controversial Sri Lankan defence secretary of Sri Lanka who appeared on many TV channels across the globe and thundered that he had the right to bomb hospitals and schools. He had indeed ordered to bomb several hospitals in the recent war in Sri Lanka. This short tempered leader and the current military commander of Sri Lanka are directly responsible for thousands of killings in Sri Lanka.

Some of the ministers from the Jumbo cabinet of Sri Lanka have degrees from western universities. They wear crisp clean suits and speak in Queens English. But what comes out of their mouth don’t reflect the real situation in Sri Lanka.

Sri Lankan rulers no longer tell the truth. According to them, the Sun raises in the West and the rooster crows only in the evenings. While murdering civilians with heavy weapons including tanks and missiles with unconventional war heads, Sri Lanka was lying to the world that they were only using light weapons.

Sri Lanka is the most militarised among the South Asian countries with 13000 military personnel per one million population. Every street corner of Sri Lanka is guarded by armed soldiers. Sri Lanka has 266K active armed personal (Total Troops 374K) which is much higher than many developed countries. [Australia (54k), Canada (65K), South Africa (56K), Norway (28K), United Kingdom (188K), Germany (248K), France (260K), Italy (230K)]




Sri Lanka has no foreign enemies. Multi barrel Rockets were used to kill thousands of Tamils in the recent war

 


In terms of military expenditure as percentage of GDP, Sri Lanka spends the most in South Asia. The figure is 6% in Sri Lanka which is much higher than the amount spent by its neighbours. (3.5% in Pakistan; 2.5% in India and Nepal; and 1.5% in Bangladesh)


Sri Lanka is now planning to recruit fifty thousands more for its armed forces.
 

Sri Lanka has now become like another Myanmar in the region. Close associations with nuclear armed China and Pakistan and friendships with Iran, Libya, and Myanmar are already giving the danger signs. Iran has indicated that it is willing to share nuclear technologies with Sri Lanka for peaceful purposes. Those who follow the current trend in the world, very well know what these peaceful purposes are.

Sri Lanka is trying to get hold of nuclear technology (to supplement its power needs). Having been turned away by India, Sri Lanka is turning to States like Iran to fulfil its nuclear ambitions. This is why Sri Lanka always backs Iran’s nuclear program

It may not be well known that Sri Lanka was instrumental in Iran acquiring nuclear technology. Some Sri Lankan businessmen and engineers are among those whose names appear in a United States blacklist over the alleged involvement in the world’s worst illicit nuclear proliferation racket, the British media reported recently.

Although, Sri Lanka is a democratic country, the majority Sinhala people support Nazi Style right wing parties. Racist politicians and military leaders are looked upon as heroes and saviours of the country. Tamils who once had their own nation are now considered as aliens and invaders even though the majority of the Tamils are the original inhabitants of this land. Politics is driven by the powers of ignorance, greed, lies and deceptions.

Today, three hundred thousands of Tamils in Sri Lanka are locked up in concentration camps and the rest live in homes that are heavily guarded by the Sri Lankan military. People who once lived dignified and prosperous lives are now treated like stray dogs. Tamil women are raped by the Sri Lankan army and young Tamil men are tortured and killed.

 

 

Tamil Rebellion against State Terrorism in Sri Lanka

Tamils, who are one of the most oppressed communities in the world, have been fighting to free themselves from the evil regimes of the country. But they have so far failed to achieve their goals. Tamils initially fought through democratic means. Democracy no longer works in favour of Tamils because the majority prefers the Tamils to be wiped out from the country.

Tamils were slaughtered in thousands with swords and knives in the buses, trains and in their own homes in the fifties, sixties, seventies and eighties. Frustrated Tamil youth took arms to fight against fascism. Armed rebellion has now been crushed with the help of China and India.

Tamil rebels were initially functioning like how IRA did things in the eighties but from the early 2000s they did manage to build a well disciplined conventional force with their own Air force and Navy. According to the former Chief Justice of Sri Lanka, who retired only few weeks ago, Tamil rebels were better in honouring the laws of the land than the government of Sri Lanka. For instance, Seven Sri Lankan soldiers who were prisoners of war in the rebel camps were set free by the rebels without any scratches, even at a time when Sri Lankan forces were murdering Tamil women and babies in cold blood.

Tamil Rebels and the Sri Lankan government signed a ceasefire in 2002, after the Sri Lankan forces had suffered a heavy defeat in a conventional war between both parties. Negotiations were taking place between the Tamils and the Sri Lankan government for five years, with the help of the mediators from EU, Norway, Japan and US.

Sri Lankan government suddenly withdrew from the ceasefire unilaterally in 2007, and launched a war against the rebels with help of India and the weapons it got from China and Pakistan. War broke out at a time when there were signs of peace becoming materialised in Sri Lanka according to the former Norwegian mediator Eric Solheim, who is now the Minister of Environment.

Sri Lankan army did manage to slaughter more than fifty thousand Tamil civilians including women and children within few months time. Banned weapons like cluster bombs and phosphorous bombs were used against the innocents.

 


War in Vanni, that had revealed the face of the devil

Vanni is a Tamil land in the north eastern region of Sri Lanka that was once flowing with milk and honey. People prospered in every thing. Many of them did farming and deep sea fishing. They were not poor. Their barns were filled with grains throughout the year. These people ate a very healthy diet and lived in homes that were located in unpolluted areas. In our terms, people of Vanni ate organic grains, vegetables, fruits, meat and fish all their lives.

Few months ago, all of a sudden, Skis of Vanni became darkened. Children stopped playing. Dancing was turned into mourning. Chinese F7s, Russian MIGs f lied over Vanni and bombed homes, hospitals, schools and farms. Cluster bombs, phosphorous bombs and other banned weapons were used against innocent civilians.


They were slaughtered in their own homes

Men, women and children were hiding inside the bunkers without adequate food and medicine for months. More than fifty thousands innocents were slaughtered. Thirty thousands were injured. Thousands of children became orphans. Wounded and maimed crawled on mud and dirt to search for water and food.



Children were hiding inside the bunkers for weeks and months. Many were not fortunate

 

Thousands of surrendered and wounded rebels were brutally murdered. Military tanks rolled over the dying and the golden beaches of Sri Lanka were turned into red carpets with the blood of the innocents.

There were no more mourners left in the land of Vanni to mourn for the dead. Lands of the living didn’t send any comforters to the land of the dead. Hearts of the world became stones and the so called leaders of the world had once again revealed their ugly faces.



Nobody came to mourn for the dead
 

Number of people massacred on the beaches of Sri Lanka is almost ten times of the people died in the Tiananmen Square massacre in China.

If the war was conducted fairly according to the international laws, the outcome of the war would have been much different. Sri Lankan army defeated the rebels by using unconventional banned weapons that had caused thousands of civilian causalities and deaths.



Chemical weapons were used against the Civilians and Rebels

 

After killing so many thousands, the Sri Lankan government has sent the remaining to Nazi style concentration camps. Now they are dying in the death camps of Sri Lanka with lack of food and medicine. Tamil women are abused and raped by Sri Lankan military in these horror camps. Men are tortured and killed.

Although China, India and Pakistan are helping the Sri Lankan rulers, Genocide is being carried out with the complete freewill of this Nation. Sri Lankan leaders have made this beautiful country into a half naked prostitute in the India Ocean. Ministers of this country regularly fly to China and India to meet the political and military leaders of those nations. Sri Lanka has become a puppet of these superpowers with its own sweet will.

 


Sri Lanka is facing destruction by its own masters

People of this world are becoming more and more tolerant. Many colours and races are learning to live together in Europe and America. American people have even elected a Black president with a Muslim middle name to give a powerful message to the world.

Nations that have systems based on racial and religious supremacies should know that they are heading for isolation and destruction if they continue with their racist policies.

Here we see a country that has gone out of control and acting weirdly in the Indian Ocean. Beaches of Sri Lanka are stained with the blood of thousands men, women and children who were slaughtered by the cruel rulers of this country. There is no more media freedom. Local and foreign journalists are intimidated, prisoned and killed. Arrogant leaders of this country are confronting individuals, organisations and even nations that are opposing the killings.

Average Joe has the tools to send a message to Sri Lanka who are deliberately failing from the duties to protect its people.

Joe is conscious of the environment. He makes sure that papers, cloths and empty bottles end up in recycling bins. He is very concerned about the people living in the poorest countries on this earth. He buys fair trade tea and coffee that are produced in countries that need our help.

Joe takes his family for holidays at least once a year. As a matter of conscience, Joe will not be holidaying on the blood stained beaches of Sri Lanka where thousands of innocent men, women and children were brutally murdered by Bombs and shells. Joe will not be buying garments that are made in Sri Lanka, a country that has locked up three hundred thousands Tamils including babies, pregnant women and disabled in barbed wired concentration camps

People of Vanni, who once lived prosperously, are now left to wander like vagabonds with skin and bones in the death camps of Sri Lanka. Family ties are broken, their dignity is destroyed, and thousands of children are psychologically tormented. Many thousands have already become mental.



Money goes into the hands of Sri Lanka is used to wound and kill innocent Civilians. It is time to say "No"

 

Fourteen hundreds dying in the death camps of Sri Lanka in a week is a clear proof that Sri Lanka is still mass murdering Tamils. These people are not terrorists but men, women and children who also have dreams and have every right on this earth to live with dignity. They were not born to die of starvation, torture and deliberate medical negligence in the hands foolish and arrogant rulers.

Sri Lanka should know that they can’t do business with the world while slaughtering the civilians. No country prospers with the blood of the innocents. Agents of the Sri Lanlan regime who live overseas are still justifying the killings of Tamils. They should learn to show respect the follow humans because they themselves enjoy equal rights in foreign countries.

People of this world, no matter what their religion, race, colour and culture are, they all have the freedom to live without the fear of intimidation, torture rape and murder.

Time has for the international community say No to “Sri Lankan package Holidays”, No to “Sri Lankan Airlines”, No to “Sri Lankan Cricket”, No to “Ceylon Tea”, No to “Garment made in Sri Lanka” and No to “Any organisation that has commercial interests in Sri Lanka” until the killings stop and Sri Lanka come with clean hands.

We give money for Cancer Research, Save the Children, Christian Aid, Tear Fund and many other leading charities because we very well know that our money is used to protect, build and heal lives

What goes in the hands of Sri Lanka is not used to build lives but to destroy lives therefore, it is rational, ethical and sensible to stop supporting a country that is continuing with its genocide agenda with arrogance.

Sri Lanka is already facing isolation and there will be serious consequences if the leaders of this country continue to orchestrate abductions, torture, rape and killings in order to suppress the voice of the oppressed.

Destroying individuals, families and communities will eventually lead to the destruction of the whole Nation of Sri Lanka by its own masters.

Emerging Powers turning into blood sucking leeches [Jul. 8th, 2009|10:18 pm]


Injustice and Inequality in an unfair world

Life is not fair” is a phrase that always echoes in the far corners of this Earth. A fifteen year old boy may have to work sixteen hours a day, in a poor African country just to get one meal a day for his sick mother and five siblings. This may not be the case in many other places in the world. Even the rulers of some poor countries, could be using gold plated toilets and marble baths while the poor hunt for bread crumps in rubbish dumps.

We are now so used to living with other people money without any shame. Resources on this earth are not distributed fairly among its inhabitants. We have built intelligent systems to steal, what belongs to others. Our banks no longer focus much on their traditional roles, instead they employ rocket scientists to build sophisticated gambling machines in order to rob the poor and give to the rich.

Corrupt regimes, can to some extent be blamed for the misery of people in their lands. Instead of setting the people free from such regimes, some of the big players use this as an opportunity to exploit the vulnerable people for their own selfish gains.

Value of life is not the same in every country. When the twin towers fell and three thousands perished, we all knelt down and wept. The whole world came to a stop for few minutes. We declared “War on Terror” against each and every single armed group in the world, including the ones that are genuinely fighting to free their communities from oppressive governments. Hands of the oppressed were tied and the weapons were given to many corrupt Nations. This is what we call Justice today.

Four hundred thousands were slaughtered in Darfur, Eight hundred thousands perished in Rwanda because the terror regimes in these countries were driven by ignorance and greed. No leader in the world declared “War on Genocide” even after seeing millions of deaths. Instead, some of the world powers aided genocide in these poor countries.

Although, the world media still stick with the figure of seventy thousands, the actual number of people, perished in the Sri Lankan civil war is around three hundred thousands. Fifty thousands were killed just within a short period of time in the recent war in Sri Lanka.

We have millions of evidences to prove that a systematic genocide is taking place in Sri Lanka while the Nations are watching. Neither UN nor any other world power is being able to stop the madness that is still going on in this country.

Security Council no longer agree on any decisions that are vital to save the vulnerable and oppressed people on this earth. Permanent members use their Veto powers just to cover their own dirt and to protect the other bullies in their club.

Our parliamentarians are hanging on to their positions and they are forced to sort out their expense claims to keep their jobs. Leaders of some powerful nations are not being able to focus on the real issues because they are chased after, to give explanations for things they did when they were teenagers. Senior staffs in the UN no longer have the freedom to do what is right. They have to dance according to the tunes played by their masters who have conflicting interests. It has now become a common practice that the leaders in the UN and top diplomats speak the truth only after their retirement.

We have robust systems in place, to protect the criminals and torment the victims. Our legal systems are so advanced that diplomats and politicians have to think hundred times, before making any comments. Just to make life easier, they keep their mouths shut even at times it is important to speak out.

Even during a humanitarian crisis, our leaders would still act like electronic parrots who can only repeat the same recorded words that would comply with national and international laws, just to make sure that they hang on to their jobs. The world is dying for leaders who can at least use their basic common sense to help the persecuted people on this planet.

We talk about political correctness. We are very concerned about little things but we turn a deaf ear, when the real-world calamities strike the mankind. We are planning to stop using Christmas lights in our towns because we think it will offend people from other religions. We are supposed to write “Traces of Nuts” on peanut packets. Doctors have to break their heads before writing prescriptions, because most of the drugs have side affects. They will be sued if something goes wrong. We have been very successful in sending many talented doctors, writers and politicians to the prisons and letting the criminals to roam around our cities.

Praising the Sri Lankan regime for slaughtering thousands of innocents and letting the Tamils to languish in the concentration camps is another example that we have become real hypocrites and jokers who have bigger mouths, smaller brains and corrupt souls. Playing cricket with a country that is flowing with the blood of the innocent men, women and children, shows that we no longer have any moral principles to guide our lives. We are now even quite comfortable to sit and have tea with a Hannibal while his hands are still stained with the blood and his room is filled with the stink of rotting human flesh.

UN Staffs along with the Sri Lankan leaders were happy to fly over the killing fields and blood stained beaches of Sri Lanka, while having their hands on knives and forks.

 


Emerging powers are turning into blood sucking leeches

The so called emerging superpowers are turning themselves into blood sucking leeches. Nobody can deny that these great nations have security concerns and they have to find a way to feed their own people. That doesn’t mean that they have God given right to slaughter the innocents in third world countries by giving support to the brutal regimes.

We teach our children to share everything because it is always a sensible and the right thing to do. Unfortunately, the great powers in the world still haven’t grasped the idea that gold in the lands and oil in the seas can also be shared. One might be able to forgive, when a country steals the resources from another country but it is completely unacceptable when thousands of innocents are sacrificed at the feet of greedy and selfish giants for them to fill their Gold pots.

If my neighbour wants to kill his step children and dump them in his back garden, I wouldn’t give him my shot gun just because he is offering me a free parking space in his garage. I wouldn’t feed my own children with the strawberries growing on the graves of the innocent children. I wouldn’t be going for his barbecue parties. I wouldn’t play golf with such a murderer.

As a sensible human being, I would stop him from abusing his step children in the first place. I would call the police to save lives before it is too late. I would alert all my good neighbours about a tragedy unfolding in front of my own eyes.

What China and some other emerging powers do to the vulnerable people of this world is nothing different from an evil man who give a shot gun to his neighbour in order to get free parking space and strawberries growing on the graves of the dead children.

China supplied weapons and provided training to the fighter pilots in Sudan. China was giving interest free loans while the Sudan government was slaughtering thousands in Darfur. One doesn’t need to be rocket scientist to recognise that China was acting selfishly.

China was complicit in Genocide as Sudan had opened up its oil fields for this sleeping giant. Western countries raised their voices but nothing was done to stop the genocide. As usual, the UN also stood back and remained powerless until everything was over.

What happened in Darfur has now become a standard model for the big beasts to secure their strategic interests in many parts of the world. They try to find trouble spots in this world, identify the abusive strongman who is having an upper hand and make the oppressor happy by giving him the toys and tools that he enjoys the most.

More than fifty thousands innocent Tamil civilians were slaughtered on the sandy beaches and jungles of Sri Lanka with the weapons and unlimited ammunitions supplied by the Chinese government. Three hundred thousands are now locked up in barbed wired concentration camps.

UN and other international organisations have so far failed to break this cycle of crimes being committed by the superpowers in various parts of the world.

Exploiting someone’s weakness for their own benefit” is a simple phrase to describe the hell going on in Sri Lanka”. This is just like someone purposely creating a virus, spreading it and then selling the vaccines to make money. An internal conflict in Sri Lanka has now been made worse by its greedy neighbours. They are now lining up with spanners and hammers to fix the problems in Sri Lanka.

The way they are trying to fix it, is quite like how any selfish person would approach an issue. A genuine mediator might get bad name from either parties of a conflict by being fair on both sides. This is what happened to the Norwegian mediators in Sri Lanka. But the ones that are now trying to fix Sri Lanka are helping the strong party to the conflict to destroy the weaker one completely.

Cases are sometimes dropped in courts when the victims are dead or nobody is there to defend the victims. Helping Sri Lanka to kill the Tamils with deadly weapons and make them powerless is the strategy now being used by Sri Lanka and its greedy partners to deal with the conflict. Such method can’t be called as conflict resolution but it is an unfair conflict termination by eliminating one party to the conflict. This is almost like injecting poison and killing the patient to free him from sickness. This approach would enable the emerging superpowers to strengthen their ties with Sri Lanka and to carry on with their hidden agendas.

No country is willing to rescue the dying people in Sri Lanka. What is happening to the Tamils in Sri Lanka is not a fairy tale, not a film but it is a real story. They are real people. Cruelty against them is real. Deaths of the thousands are real and the ignorance and arrogance of the mankind are also real.

 


Masters of War and Silent Spectators

It has taken quite a while for many of us to understand, that what was happening in Sri Lanka was not “War on Terror”. If the war was just against the Tamil Rebels, the so called saviours of this country would have taken all the necessary steps to protect the vulnerable community once the war was over. Rulers of this land are still tormenting innocent Tamil men, women and children inside barbed wired concentration camps, even after crushing the Tamil rebels with the help of China, Pakistan and India. This has become a shocking revelation and eye opener for many parties who were initially supporting the war in Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka wants to weaken the Tamils in order to establish a Sinhala Buddhist State. China wants to build ports in the South of Sri Lanka for military and commercial purposes. India wants to neutralise the Chinese threats and to establish its rule in the Indian Ocean. Pakistan has got its own agendas, what an evil combination. They have all been competing with each other to satisfy a country that is determined to flush out all the Tamils.

Sri Lanka has now become a football ground for many countries and the rulers of this land are delighted to entertain the players. Every time a ball is kicked, it kills the innocents and the pitch gets flooded with the blood. Players don’t care about how many are dying because it is part of their evil game.

China and India were the main players in the recent Sri Lankan war. They are still in the pitch, kicking the air. When people were dying in thousands, even the West didn’t do anything to stop; instead we also stood back and watched. We were more interested in finding out who was going to win the game in the Indian Ocean instead of focusing on the humanitarian crisis.

UN has failed to stop the bloodshed. West has failed. All the so called Human Right organisations have failed.

 


India and its role in Sri Lankan war

India is a successful democracy with the population of 1.17 billion. So many different races, cultures, colours and religions live relatively peacefully. Most of the ethnic groups have their own States and every State in the country is given a degree of autonomy within this great Nation. People of India are mostly religious, hard working and non violent and they still maintain very strong traditional family values.

India hasn’t got a consistent foreign policy towards Sri Lanka. RAW which is the external intelligent agency in India has done great damage to Sri Lanka particularly to the Tamil community. India can't be fully blamed for this because the Sri Lankan regimes very often make unpredictable moves therefore India is forced to change its policies.

As any other intelligent agency, RAW has a legitimate responsibility to protect India from its enemies, by being proactive. However, India could have achieved its objectives without helping the Sri Lankan government to slaughter thousands of Tamils.

RAW provided military training to the Tamil rebels in the early eighties in order to challenge the Sri Lankan government that had closed links with the Western Countries including the US. Tamil youth were trained in different groups. RAW was also to some extent be responsible for fuelling enmity and competition between different Tamil organisations.

Contrary to what many people believe, it is Indian’s interest to maintain a troubled Sri Lanka than a peaceful nation for India to spread its wings in the region. Disturbance in Sri Lanka would give an excuse for India to keep its Navy in Sri Lankan waters.

Indian peace keeping forces and Tamil rebels fought an unfortunate war between 1987 and 1989. Around twelve hundreds Indian soldiers lost their lives and many thousands were wounded in Sri Lankan soil. This was a bitter experience for India.

From year 2001 until the start of war in 2007, India kept a distance from Sri Lanka, although activities were going on behind the scenes. India stopped supplying offensive weapons to the Sri Lankan military.

Indian involvement in recent Sri Lankan war was quite controversial. China and Pakistan provided with all the weapons and India provided the intelligence to the ground troops.

India was well capable of stopping the war but it failed to do it even when thousands of innocent men women and children were perishing in Vanni. Some Indian leaders made contradictory statements, pretending like they were after peace while pressing the “Attack” buttons on their remote controls.

India may have its concerns that Sri Lanka might become a launch pad for China and Pakistan in its own backyard. Letting the Tamils to die in the hands of the Sri Lankan forces was not an easy option for India either.

India has no enmity with the Tamils in Sri Lanka but it has made a historical blunder by supporting a corrupt Sri Lankan regime to commit genocide against the Tamils just to satisfy a racist Nation, so that it can secure its interest in the Indian Ocean.

Indian forces are now going to occupy the Vanni region with the excuse of clearing land mines.

Nation of India has unfortunately deviated from its principles and core values, it was originally built upon. India might build rockets to the moon and giant monuments reaching to the skies but India will not succeed if it corrupts its own soul by aiding Genocide in other countries.

India should dream of becoming a superpower not just by wealth and technology but also proving to the world as a defender and guardian of Human rights.

Cries of men, women and children, who died in Vanni, are still echoing in the thundering skies of Vanni. These voices will keep on haunting every Indian because India has blood on its hands.

 


China and its role in Sri Lankan War

China has a total population of 1.33 billion. It is an emerging superpower that manufactures 50% of the items that is used in an average household in the West.

In order to feed all its citizens, to have access to raw materials and energy and to protect its strategic interests, China obviously needs to maintain close relations with countries that have something to offer.

A country that crushed 3000 protesters by rolling tanks in Tinanamon square, China hasn't got a great reputation for human rights. If a country can't treat its own citizen’s well, we can't expect them to be concerned about people dying in other countries.

China has been very aggressive with its foreign policies in recent times. This sleeping giant has woken up and giving support to many corrupt regimes on earth to fulfil its agendas. Sadly, China has directly or indirectly aided genocide in many countries including Sudan and Sri Lanka.

Although, India provided the directions and intelligence for the Sri Lankan war, it was China that had given all the dangerous weapons and ammunitions to kill the Tamils in thousands.

Most of Tamils who died in Sri Lanka were killed by Chinese weapons. Sri Lanka has allowed China to build a controversial Port in the south of Sri Lanka.

Chinese intervention in Sri Lanka is not about defeating the Tamil rebels but to reward the country that had given the permission to build infrastructures in the strategically important Indian Ocean.

Indian intervention in Sri Lankan war is more to do with stopping Sri Lanka going in the hands of other countries, than defeating the Tamil rebels.

In summary, neither China nor India was keen on killing the Tamils. Just like China supported the Sudanese government to commit genocide in Darfur, they supported the Sri Lankan government to slaughter the Tamils in order to look after their strategic interests in the India Ocean.

If China and Pakistan didn’t supply weapons to Sri Lanka, we wouldn’t have seen the recent war in Sri Lanka.

 


West was deceived by Sri Lanka and its allies

War in Sri Lanka was started even with the blessings of the West and Japan.

Sri Lankan authorities with its PR partners, prepared a dossier to justify the war to the international community. This proposal was submitted to many countries including the EU, US, Norway and Japan.

Sri Lanka and its allies were able to convince many countries that Tamil rebels were a danger to the whole world. They were able to demonise the Tamil community, with lies and deceptions for their own advantage.

Comments made by some Western leaders and Japanese representatives during the war clearly showed that these countries were fully supporting the war in Sri Lanka but they felt very uncomfortable when the war became very dirty at the end. Many openly talked about post LTTE scenarios which means they all had the maps in their hands.

One of the main reasons why the UN and Western countries couldn't take a strong stand to stop the war even when thousands of innocents were dying was because there were all there when the button was pressed at the start of the War.

Only difference is that the West never gave the approval to kill innocent men, women and children. Sri Lanka was not given the go ahead to send Tamils to barbed wired concentration camps.

Sri Lanka has now deceived the western countries and revealed its true face. Sri Lanka lied to the whole world that it was conducting a war with surgical strikes and “Zero Civilian Causalities”. It also denied that heavy weapons were used against civilians.

Torture, murder, rape and all kind of human right violations in the concentrations camps of Sri Lanka, are now sending shock waves across the world. Deportations of Western reporters, journalists and politicians from the Sri Lankan Airport and denial of access to the death camps of Sri Lanka for aid workers are showing the face of rebellious country that is willing go to any extent to defy international humanitarian laws.

 


UN no longer has a backbone

No wonder why the UN acted the way it acted during the Sri Lankan war. Staff members in the UN were simply dancing according to the different set of tunes that were played by various parties to the war.

UN who is supposed to be a guardian of the oppressed and vulnerable, remained as a silent spectator while thousands were perishing in the sandy beaches of Sri Lanka.

It is so obvious that UN was manipulated and was made to act in this way by some master magicians.

 


Master magicians are now trying to save Sri Lanka

China and India voted in favour of Sri Lanka in the human rights council. Their vote was like praising a murderer in a criminal court. Sri Lanka was congratulated by these countries for the war because they were also the culprits.

These two countries have both been involved in high level PR campaigns to hide the war crimes committed by Sri Lanka. Arrogant voice from Sri Lanka in the recent times is to do with its close bonding with India and China.

India has recently said that it would give aid to Sri Lanka in case if the loan from IMF is denied or delayed.

Indian and Chinese media have constantly been releasing news, supporting the Sri Lankan government since the start of the war. Sri Lanka not allowing Aid agencies and Journalists to the IDP camps and to the killing fields is done with the full support of India. This is to hide the war crimes and to silence the witnesses of the war. Three doctors who served thousands of wounded in the killing fields are now locked up in Sri Lankan jails. India is capable of requesting Sri Lanka to release these doctors but it has chosen not to.

Sri Lankan President and many cabinet ministers in Sri Lanka have recently acknowledged that they fought India’s War in Sri Lanka.

 


Conclusion

Indian and Chinese military, political and security leaders that are playing chess games in Sri Lanka, have caused so much death and destruction to the innocents. What is the point of becoming a superpower when the power is used to kill and destroy the oppressed and vulnerable people of this world?

So called guardians of this earth can use buzz words like Terrorism, National, Regional and International security, Global warming and Energy in international conferences and pretend like the saviours of human race but it is all meaningless when the same hypocrites advise their own governments to aid genocide in other countries.

Instead of playing Tic-Tac-Toe games in the Indian Ocean, China and India and even the West should sit together and discuss what they all want to achieve in the Indian Ocean. China with such a population has genuine energy requirements, India has its concerns and it is sensible for all these countries to find common ground and initiate constructive discussions.

These emerging superpowers should help the oppressed communities in Sri Lanka and other troubled nations on this earth, instead of helping the oppressive regimes and turn these countries into a hell in order to feed their own people.

Earth's natural resources are being depleted so quickly. It is sensible for the energy hungry Nations to invest heavily on sustainable solutions like Hydrogen technology and Solar power. This would help us to save the planet and avoid human rights violations that are directly linked to the unfair competition between countries for raw materials and energy resources.

Any country that fails to protect the oppressed and vulnerable on this earth, and having worst human rights records, can’t become a leading Nation no matter how many rockets it sends to the Moon.

Fifty thousands were slaughtered in the killings fields by the Sri Lankan government with the help of India and China who are now acting like blood sucking leeches in the Indian Ocean. Three hundred thousands are now languishing in the death camps. Sri Lanka and its allies are doing all that they can to hide their crimes.

Rwanda, Sudan and now Sri Lanka, it is another wake up call to the World.

Genocide in Sri Lanka is real. Innocents are still being tortured, raped, murdered and starved. We have to make a choice whether to let the killings continue or we do something to stop it.

Tamils languishing in Sri Lankan Death Camps [Jun. 12th, 2009|07:20 pm]
[Tags|, , , , , , ]
[Current Location |London]

 "The time has come for the whole Sinhala race which has existed for 2,500 years, jealously safeguarding their language and religion, to fight without giving any quarter to save their birthright. I will lead the campaign."

 Former Sri Lankan President J R Jayawardene

 "I strongly believe that this country belongs to the Sinhalese”

General Sarath Fonseka, Commander of the Sri Lanka Army

Knowingly or unknowingly, we have all been witnessing one of the darkest chapters in humanity, now being written by the blood of innocent civilians in a land that was once known as Pearl of the Indian Ocean. The ugliest part of this chapter is not what is happening to the innocents but the response from the civilised world that has so far failed miserably to save the lives, although it has the power to act.

Sri Lankan authorities have recently claimed that thirty years of civil war was over and Sri Lanka had defeated Terrorism in this island.

In reality, the so called "War on Terror" is over, deceptive Humanitarian and rescue operations are over but "War on the Innocent Minority Tamils" that started almost two thousands years ago is still continuing and it has now taken a new dangerous turn.

Many of us studied in our history lessons about concentration camps and extermination camps that were operating in Europe during world war two. We were shocked, when we heard about how innocent Jewish people were killed by the Nazis in gas chambers.

Some of us have even written research papers and spent years studying about these notorious Death Camps. We have the systems and procedures in place to stop something like this being repeated in the future. International Humanitarian Organisations have genocide alert mechanisms in place for rapid action.

World leaders very often visit the Auschwitz extermination camps in Poland and make statements like "We will not allow something like this to happen in the future" or “Never again”.

Sadly, Genocide is taking place silently in a far away land but many have so far failed to acknowledge it. We have now become a selfish generation that is good at making regret speeches and look for scapegoats once the tragedy is over, instead of doing something constructive to save lives when it is the right time to act.

We don't even like to use the word Genocide when it is happening but we would write hundreds of books after it had happened.

It is happening again

While the Sinhala Buddhist extremists in Sri Lanka are celebrating their victory with flags and fire crackers, while the leaders of this country are dining in five star hotels, while the Sinhala youth in the capital city are singing and dancing in the night clubs, while the holy ones of the land are throwing flowers and perfumes at the feet of the Buddha statues, three hundred thousands Tamils are persecuted inside controversial Nazi style Barbed wired Concentration camps , that are operating just 150 miles away from the capital of Sri Lanka.

The people in these camps once lived in their own homes. Farmers, fishermen, priests, doctors, nurses, engineers, lawyers, principals, teachers, civil officers and people from all walks life, who once lived happily, are now let to suffer in the torture chambers of Sri Lanka.

Seeing innocents with hunger and sickness brings us back the memories of starving people in Ethiopia, but the difference in Sri Lanka is that these people are not confronted with a natural disaster. They have been forced into starvation, sickness and death deliberately so that the Sri Lankan masters can fulfil their racist agendas and hide the war crimes that were committed in the recent war against the Tamil rebels.

Many of these people owned farms and lands, they had savings, they still have many relatives living in other parts of the country and overseas, who are willing and able to help. Sri Lankan authorities are not allowing anybody to rescue these people from these torture camps, instead they are coming up with all kind of excuses to stop any help reaching to the needy, so that they can continue with their hidden agendas.

  

Deaths in Camps

Sky news has recently reported that they saw dead bodies of the Tamils lying outside the Tents.

On average ten to fifteen people are dying of preventable diseases and untreated wounds. Hospital mortuaries are unable to cope with the rising number of deaths.

Many young people are taken out for questioning and some of them are killed and their bodies are thrown on the streets. People are forced to go through painful and slow death. Urgent medical treatments are either denied or delayed deliberately to cause death to the innocents.

Many in these camps think that they would have been better off, if they were killed in Vanni by bombs. It is very heart breaking to see women, children and old people suffering from painful diseases in unhygienic conditions. They are let to die because the Sri Lankan government see this as part of their genocidal plan in this country.

  

Torture, Rape and Murder

Torture, Rape and Murder are used against the Tamils all over the country. But these incidents are now widely reported in these notorious camps. Recent visits by some international reporters confirm that many mothers cry uncontrollably because their daughters are being raped by the Sri Lankan security forces when they are taken for questioning.

Most parents with teenagers never sleep at night because they are worried that their sons and daughters will be abducted. The names of young people are often called out and they have to go and meet the security forces. Some of them come back, others do not.

UN has recently reported that thirteen thousands Tamils are already missing from these camps.


 

Food, Water and Sanitation

The conditions that these people live in, are much worse than some of the worst prisons in the world. Cooked food is given in some of these camps but the detainees are given only one meal a day. Men, women and children have to wait for hours in long queues under extreme temperatures, to get these packed meals that are prepared in unhygienic conditions. Some women and children faint and fall before they get their meals.


These faces tell us the real stories. They have lost all that they had, and they are now left to languish behind barbed wires


Thousands of wounded and maimed crawl on the dirt and mud, looking for drops of water to cool their tongues.


Drinking water is not readily available. People carry empty plastic bottles and cans and wait in long queues for hours to quench their thirsts. Water is sometime pumped from lakes and given to the detainees for consumption before purification. Many diseases in the camps are caused by unclean water. People very often die of diarrhoea and Typhoid.

 

Hundreds of people wait for hours to use the toilets in the camps, and by the time they reach to the facilities, the toilets are sometime blocked. Women particularly go through immense hardships because many of them don't even have change of cloths.

  

Law of the land doesn't protect them

 The former chief justice who was the highest judicial officer of the sovereign nation of Sri Lanka has recently said that the internally displaced people are outside the legal jurisdiction of Sri Lanka. Which means the laws of the land don't protect them.


They are not protected by the laws of the land(Lambs ready for slaughter)


Rapes, torture, murders and all the atrocities that are taking place inside these horror camps can't be reported to the police or to anybody who is responsible for the security. These people are simply let in the hands of God because man has given up on them.

 

  

Concentration camps and extermination camps

 Extermination camp is a type of concentration camp and this is not used to punish the criminals but to kill the occupants in a systematic way. Hitler used poison gas to kill millions of Jewish people in extermination camps.

Sinhala Buddhist extremists who consider themselves as a pure Arian race, have been killing Tamils for a simple reason that they see Tamils as infidels and they want to establish a Sinhala Buddhist state in Sri Lanka. This is very similar to the way how Hitler killed the Jewish people because he saw them impure.

Instead of using poison gas to kill all the Tamils in seconds, Sri Lankan government is withdrawing food, medicine and clean water and making the people to live in horrific conditions, so that the Genocide can be carried out slowly inside closed doors.


 

Where did the camp people come from?

Many of us have recently heard about the war in Sri Lanka. This war was very ugly because so many war crimes had been committed and more than fifty thousand civilians died, though the official figures keep on changing. Men, women and children were forced to live inside the bunkers for months. Food and medicine were denied to them.

Although the Sri Lankan government claimed that they were fighting the war against the Tamil rebels, it was in fact orchestrated by India and the arms were supplied by China and Pakistan for these countries to secure their strategic interests in the region.

Sinhala Buddhist extremists obviously have benefited a lot from this war because oppressing, persecuting and killing Tamils are always their main goals.

This war was almost like carpet bombing the whole Belfast and killing and wounding thousands of people, starving them to death, denying food to them just to capture and kill few hundreds of IRA rebels who were begging for a ceasefire.

Just imagine one third of the people in Belfast are dead and those who did mange to escape are now forced into concentrations camps and women and children are treated in horrific conditions. No government on this earth would do something like this unless the parties of the war have other hidden motives.

But, this is what exactly happened in Sri Lanka. An area twice the size of Singapore was carpet bombed for months and thousands of civilians were killed in one of the dirtiest wars in the history.

Those who did manage to survive the war have now been sent to these controversial camps.

  

How do the Sri Lankan authorities justify these camps?

Sri Lankan government claims that it needs more time to weed out Terrorists from the people. They are even talking about keeping Tamils for more than three years in these death camps.

They also argue that they need more time to clear land mines from the areas where the war was fought.

 

Justifications for the existence of these camps are not valid

Rebels, who were able to escape the war zone, have now surrendered to the government forces. They have also openly declared that they are willing to join mainstream politics. But the government has rejected their offer and refusing to give them amnesty.

Tamil rebels were running a civil administration in their de facto state. Most of these people lived and worked with the rebels therefore weeding out rebels and their sympathisers from the people doesn't make any sense, because every single soul in this community would have had some contacts with the rebels.

 

Thousands of orphans of war are left in the hands of God


If they are only after the rebels, why is that mothers, children and old people are forced to live in such horrific conditions. Many of them have relatives living in other parts of the country who are willing to accommodate them. But the Sri Lankan government is not letting anybody to go but expect pregnant mothers, babies and old people suffer inside these horror camps.

Though the government claims that the entire Vanni area is full of land mines, reliable sources indicate that most of the areas are safe for the civilians. This again shows that the Sri Lankan government is deliberately keeping the people inside these torture camps.

  

These camps violate basic human rights

As the former chief justice of Sri Lanka has indicated, the people in these notorious camps are not protected by the laws of the land. This gives total freedom for the criminals to commit crimes without being get caught.

People are locked up in horrific conditions against their will. Hundreds and hundreds of human rights violations are taking place and these camps are completely illegal according to international laws.

 

Sri Lanka is not at all interested in the welfare of the Tamils

Sri Lankan government’s actions in the recent weeks clearly indicate that they have many hidden agendas and they are not at all interested in looking after the welfare of the Tamil detainees.

Many international aid agencies are still waiting for permission from the authorities to go and help the people in the camps. Relatives and friends who live in other parts of the country are willing to take care of their loved ones who are illegally locked up and persecuted. Many Tamils who live overseas, are capable and willing to provide for their loved ones. But Sri Lankan authorities are not letting anybody to feed these innocent people.

Most shockingly, a Ship that went to Sri Lanka with 800 metric tons of food, cloths and medicines has now been turned back. These were donated by the Diaspora Tamils.

Western leaders who are very keen on dealing with the humanitarian crisis in Sri Lanka are either denied visas to Sri Lanka or deported back from the Colombo airport. Sri Lanka has recently denied entry to Bob Rae, a prominent Canadian politician outspoken in his criticism of Colombo’s military campaign against the Tamil rebels. They also denied entry to the Swedish foreign minister who had planned to take part in a EU humanitarian mission to the country.

Sri Lankan authorities are deliberately letting the Tamils to die without enough food and medicine. They are not interested in receiving help either from international aid agencies or the Tamil Diaspora

  

What are their hidden agendas?

These controversial camps are wrong because the Sri Lankan government has many hidden agendas. They want to hide their crimes and also they want to continue implementing their genocidal plans.

I have heard stories that murderers sometime try their best to prevent people from getting into the crime scenes. There are also situations that a murderer deliberately wound someone and deny any medical help for the victim. He would call the ambulance when it is too late to save the dying.

All these people who are now locked up in these camps had witnessed many war crimes. The saw cluster bombs and phosphorous bombs falling on civilians. Almost all of them lived inside the bunkers in order to protect themselves from bombs and shells.

They saw their loved ones dying when the hospitals and schools were bombed. Some of them had even witnessed, surrendered rebels with white flags, being shot and killed by the Sri Lankan armed forces.

They are now witnessing killings, rape and torture in the hands of the security forces in these notorious camps. Sri Lankan authorities are preventing aid workers and journalists to the camps so that they can silence the witnesses of the war and the world wouldn't know what had happened in the killing fields.

The rate at which Tamils are disappearing and dying in these camps, half the population would be wiped out in three years time. The rest will be made mental and it would be a perfect opportunity for the Sri Lankan government to colonise two Tamil districts with Sinhala Buddhist settlers. This has always been the agenda of the Sinhala governments.

Few years ago, one of the politicians from an extremist party in the south of Sri Lanka suggested to the government that carpet bombing the Tamil cities and killing half the Tamils in the country would be one of the ways to suppress the Tamil rebellion.

Tamils getting killed in Sri Lanka pleases the Sinhala Buddhist extremists. If they had any care for the thousands of civilians killed in the war and the ones dying in the extermination camps, they wouldn't have celebrated their war victory against the rebels with sweets and chocolates.

  

Why do the Sinhalesse hate the Tamils so much?

Sinhalese hate the Tamils because they are taught to hate the Tamils. They are taught in the schools and they are taught in the Buddhist temples. When the children are born to different races in Sri Lanka they are born pure and innocent.

As they grow, they start to look into the eyes of their mothers and rest in the arms of their fathers and they feel secure and confident no matter whether they were born to Sinhala, Tamil, Muslim or Burgher parents.

When they get into the schools, they are taught that the land belongs only to the Sinhala Buddhists and the rest were invaders and aliens.

If my parents had taught me that my next door neighbour was born to a monkey and he was an invader in our family land, I would have grown up hating this poor neighbour. Thankfully my parents never did that.

Buddhist Sinhala extremists in Sri Lanka are very much like the Nazi regime that preached hatred against the Jewish people, and the rulers of Sri Lanka are like reincarnations of Hitler because they are doing exactly what Hitler did sixty five years ago.

  

Are all the Sinhalease racists?

Not all the Germans were Nazis. Few leaders with sick heads can destroy a whole country or even start a world war. Hitler was a perfect example for it.

There are many Sinhala politicians, academics, lawyers, human rights activists, professionals and people from all walks of life, understand that Tamils are oppressed because of ignorance, foolishness, hatred and greed of some Nazi style leaders who are not only wiping out Tamils but are destroying the whole country.

Many Sinhala people are supporting the Tamils in their struggle against oppression.

 


Why do they persecute the Tamils in Sri Lanka?

 

Persecution of Tamils in Sri Lanka is more to do with an attempt by the Sinhala Buddhists leaders to fulfil the myths and fantasies written in an ancient book called Mahavamsa.

Mahavamsa was originally written in Pali language because the Sinhala language was not well developed at that time.

Mahavamsa is considered as a kind of bible by the Sinhala Buddhists in Sri Lanka. Although this book has historical records, there are many fabricated stories, myths and fantasies that make this book completely unreliable.

It talks about a pure Sinhala race that descended from a lion which is obviously a four leg animal. No wonder why the minorities find the Sri Lankan lion flag very offensive.

In recent days, great importance is given for flying the Sri Lankan lion flags in Tamil concentration camps , than feeding the hungry or treating the wounded. Even the Nazi regime in Germany was very serious about displaying swastika flags in the Jewish concentration camps.

Mahavamsa also preaches hatred against the minority Tamils.

Sinhala Buddhist politicians and military leaders of Sri lanka believe every word in this book and they are on a mission to fulfil the desires of the kings and queens that are portrayed in this book.

This is a sample text from Mahavamsa which was written in the 6th Century. This verse talks about a desire of a Sinhala queen who wanted drink water, mixed with the blood of a Tamil warrior.

Then she longed to drink the water that had served to cleanse the sword with which the head of the first warrior among Tamil king Elära's warriors had been struck off, and she longed to drink it standing on this very head, and moreover she longed to adorn herself with garlands of unfaded lotus-blossoms brought from the lotus marshes of Anuradhapura”

No wonder why the extremists act like the way they act, when they meditate such verses. Words of many racist politicians and military leaders in Sri Lanka are spoken straight out this book. Even some of the well known former presidents of Sri Lanka are not the exceptions.

They want to make Sri Lanka as a Sinhala Buddhist nation by wiping out the minority Tamils.

 

So who are the original inhabitants of Sri Lanka?

We have been very successful in building multi ethnic and multi religious communities with every colour race and religion who are enjoying equal rights in many countries. Therefore it is completely inappropriate to argue who own the lands and who were the original inhabitants.

Tamils and Sinhalease both have been there for more than two thousands years. They lived in two separate nations until they were brought together by the British during the 18th century.

But it is important to look at some historic facts about Sri Lanka so that we know it is wrong for the Sri Lankan authorities to claim Sri lanka as a Sinhala Buddhist country by suppressing the Tamil minorities who are indeed the original inhabitants of this Nation.

Firstly, there were no Buddhists in Sri Lanka before 200 BC because Buddhism was brought to Sri Lanka in 200 BC. There was no Sinhala language before 300 BC ,because Sinhala language was given birth at that time. Sinhala has around four thousands loan words from Tamil language, although this language originated from Brahmi script and have features of Bengali, Pali and Sanskrit. It is quite obvious that Sinhala was developed by people from different races including the Tamils.

Logically speaking, there was no such community called “Sinhala Buddhists” in Sri Lanka before 200BC. But there were Tamils in Sri Lanka before there were Sinhala Buddhists.

However, Many Sinhalese have Dravidian and Aboriginal features and these people are either the inhabitants of the country who were speaking Tamil or aboriginal languages or people migrated from the South Indian states.

Some of the Sinhalese have ancestors from Bengal, Orissa and other North Indian states.Those Sinhalese with the fair complexion either have north Indian roots or they have European ancestors.

Tamils in Sri Lanka can be grouped into three groups. Majority of them are the original inhabitants and some came to this country during the Chola invasions from India and the ones who work in the tea estates were brought in the 18th century.

Sri Lanka was connected to India by a land mass before they were separated by water. It is highly likely that Dravidian Tamils and Aboriginal community lived in Sri Lanka for many thousands years.



Nasa picture: Land mass connecting India and Sri Lanka, confirms  the links between Aboriginal/Dravidian civilizations in both countries


In summary Tamils, Sinhalease and Muslims who have Aboriginal and Dravidian roots are the original inhabitants of Sri Lanka.
So this claim of making Sri Lanka as a Sinhala Buddhist country by suppressing the minorities is completely illogical, because Sinhala language and the Buddhist religion are relatively new to this country that has many thousands of years of history.

Sri Lanka has the responsibility to protect all its citizens no matter whether they are Sinhalease, Tamils, Muslims, Moors or Burghers. When they discriminate against a race and carrying out genocide they are not just failing from their duties but they are losing their right to govern.

Oppressing the minorities to fulfil the myths and fantasies in a book that was written by a poet is a complete madness and those leaders who are trying to do this should be seen as the Hitlers of Sri Lanka.

 


Buddhist Sinhala leaders are now busy performing their rituals while Tamils are dying in the concentration camps

While the Tamils are persecuted all over the country, while they are being tortured in these controversial camps, the President and his family are busy performing Buddhist rituals and carrying statues through out the country.

Recently, the Presidents wife and his son made a secret visit to the north of the country to perform a buddhist ritual in the Tamil city of Jaffna.

The President has also recently announced that he was going to build nine giant Buddha statues in nine districts of the country including all the Tamil districts where people don’t practice Buddhism as their religion.

Millions are going to be spent on building statues in places where thousands of Tamils have recently perished in a dirty war. Instead of giving priority to help the victims, ignorant leaders are acting irresponsibly.

Sri Lankan government has also started to implement Sinhala colonisations in Tamil areas. They are also changing names of streets and places from Tamil to Sinhala

All the indications of a systematic genocide of a race is clearly seen in Sri Lanka. Tamils are dying in the hands of a Sinhala regime because of the ignorance and stupidity of the Sinhala Buddhist leaders.

  

What is the response from the International Community?

Many foreign diplomats still haven't understood the deeper issues. Some of them are even congratulating the Sri Lankan government just like someone who congratulate a bogus doctor who claims that he had healed Tyfoid with paracetamol tablets. Fever may be gone temporarily for few hours but the root disease is still there.

Sadly, many haven’t grasped the fact that Sri Lankan leaders are deceiving the whole international community with lies and deceptions and this has been going on for years.

Sri Lankan government very often take foreign diplomats to some of these refugee camps that are well maintained for propaganda purposes. They see such camps and give reports to the media that they are happy with the facilities available in these camps.

In terms of statistics, such propaganda camps are not the right samples and they don’t represent the population.

Human rights research groups and many independent organisations have confirmed war crimes and abuses in Sri Lanka in a massive scale and it is important that the world should be looking at the Sri Lankan leaders as suspected criminals and murderers.

It doesn't make any sense if the world leaders shake hands with the killers and make joint statements about the defeat of terrorism in Sri Lanka while the Sri Lankan State is still terrorising and abusing its minorities.

If the world leaders understood, how much the Tamils are going through, in the hands of a Nazi style regime in Sri Lanka, they would have done something to save the Tamils from these notorious camps.

International think tanks , diplomats and global strategists should understand the deeper issues in Sri Lanka before jumping into conclusions.

Indian prime minister Manmohan Singh has recently acknowledged that Sri Lankan problem is bigger than LTTE. It is not that he has discovered something new but it is India's another attempt to deceive the international community that they have a better understanding of Sri Lankan issues than other countries.

Anyhow he was right that Sri Lanka has very deeper issues and the most obvious problem is that the Sinhala Buddhist leaders are trying to establish a Sinhala Buddhist Sri Lanka by wiping out the Tamil minorities.

Sri Lankan ethnic conflict can be grouped into four areas. These are, enmity between two races that existed for almost two thousands of years, State terrorism against Tamils for the last 60 years, Tamil armed rebellion against state oppression for 30 years and finally the competition mainly between India and China in the Indian ocean

India and China have acted as opportunists in Sri Lanka. They got into the scene and provided help to the party they saw as strong and they have now secured their interests in Sri Lanka.

What we have recently seen in Sri Lanka is that the armed rebellion of the Tamils has now been crushed by the Sri Lankan government with the help of China and India who obviously have their own strategic interests in the Indian Ocean.

International leaders should first understand that the armed Tamil rebellion from the Tamils was just a response to the State terrorism in this country and crushing this rebellion is just like dealing with a symptom instead of the root cause.

 Even after defeating the LTTE, The way how the Tamils are treated in the barbed wired concentration camps, clearly indicates that the problems in Sri Lanka are more to do with the hatred towards the Tamils and an organised State terrorism.

  

Why do we have to intervene and save Tamils from Sri Lankan death camps?

We have all heard about a man called Josef Fritzl who kept his daughter in the dungeon for 24 years. He fed her and gave all that she needed but he abused her day and night. He was found guilty and was sent to jail.

When we find out that someone is abusing a victim, we will do something to stop the abuse and bring the culprit to justice. We don’t just stand and clap our hands or make joint statements with the killer.

Sri Lankan leaders are acting exactly like this evil father. Tamils in Sri Lanka are abducted, abused, tortured, raped and killed everyday and the world has all the evidences.

We live in a global village. We hold our hands and sing our Olympic songs together. We have become very generous and righteous. We climb mountains and run races to save the children in Africa.

We have the technologies to see what is happening in every little tiny spots on this planet. A surgeon in California can operate a child in India by manipulating a robot arm through the web interface.

We are the defenders of human rights. We talk about it in our dinner parties. We have huge departments in universities to do research on human rights and war crimes.

We enjoy each other and we need each other. We eat mangoes from India, oranges from Israel and Kiwis from New Zealand.

Here is the challenge for the civilised world. Three hundred thousands innocent civilians are persecuted in Barbed wired concentration camps for a simple reason that the rulers of this country consider them as infidels just like how Hitler treated the Jewish people.

When the West fought with the Nazi regime in Germany, We didn't just fight with flesh and blood but we also fought with the evil that was in the hearts and minds of the Nazis. What is destroying Sri Lanka is not the Sinhalease, not the Tamils, not even the Sri Lankan military but the evil that rules the hearts and minds of the racist political and religious leaders who are foolish, arrogant and greedy.

Tamils are now dying in Nazi style death camps. The law of the land is not protecting them. A systematic genocide is being committed against this oppressed community.

We have already failed to save thousands of Tamils from indiscriminate bombings in the killing fields of Sri Lanka.

If ,what we believe and what we profess in the lands of freedom are true,we would do something to save the dying Tamils from the Death Camps of Sri Lanka.

Sri Lankan Puppets in the Hands of Emerging Superpowers [Jun. 1st, 2009|06:55 pm]
[Tags|, , , , , , ]

We all wept when the Asian Tsunami took the lives of thousands

When the Asian Tsunami struck the shores of Sri Lanka, more than thirty thousands died instantly. They stopped breathing in minutes after they were swept into the ocean. Their last chapters were very brief.

News channels from major broadcasting networks were showing the horrors of tsunami twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. Media and Sports personalities appealed for aid. We packed gifts and took it to our churches and schools. Nations of the free world gave billions as aid to a country that still treats its Tamil minorities as second class citizens.


But the world remained silent when thousands of women and children experienced painful slow death in the killing fields of Sri Lanka

Another disaster struck the Tamils of Sri Lanka recently and this was a war conducted with many hidden agendas. More than fifty thousand innocent Tamil civilians were killed and thirty thousands were maimed in one of the most brutal wars in the history of the mankind. This war has cost more lives than the Asian Tsunami in this tear drop island.

Men, women and children were forced to live inside bunkers without food and medicine for months. Innocent civilians were bombed and killed by Chinese F7s and Russian MIGs in schools, hospitals and public places. Heavy artilleries and banned weapons were used against the helpless and vulnerable.

Many had to experience slow and painful death. Wounded civilians were bombed even when they were being treated in makeshift hospitals. Food and medicine were denied deliberately to the sick and to the needy. Women and children had to witness horrors after horrors.

News channels in the west didn't give much importance to this man made tsunami that was orchestrated by some world powers. Media and Sports personalities who regularly talk about poverty elimination in Asia and Africa didn't even lift a single finger to save the innocent lives.


Corrupt leaders in the UN failed in their duties. Instead of protecting the vulnerable, they danced to the wrong tunes that were played by the wrong people

UN and other international organisations who are supposed to protect the vulnerable, acted like they were also part of a mysterious game that took the lives of thousands. Many had the powers to stop the destruction but they didn't do it because they didn't want to.

The way how the diplomats and the leaders of some Nations spoke and acted during the war, made many to doubt that they were all acting out a script, written by some aliens from space.

Many leaders including the UN Secretary General kept their mouths shut and spoke only a little when they had to. Vijay Nambiar, the Head of Staffs at UN and other UN representatives went to Sri Lanka few times to negotiate a ceasefire but they failed because they had their own agendas.

They had miserably failed in their roles and had provided their full support to a regime that had committed crimes against humanity.

Some Indian leaders who were orchestrating the war in Sri Lanka visited Colombo few times not to arrange a ceasefire, not to stop the war, not to talk about the civilian causalities but to monitor the progress of the war and to congratulate the Sri Lankan authorities.

They always talked about receiving the head of the rebel leader on a platter and a piece of document with the proof of his death. This was to deceive the world that they were only after the rebel leader and the war was not about military strategies in the region and India having access to the oil reserves found in the Seas of Sri Lanka.

Only person who came across as a genuine defender of human rights was Hon. David Miliband. He confronted the Sri Lankan authorities about the deaths caused by the usage of heavy and banned weapons against civilians. As usual David Miliband or anybody who talks about human rights violations in Sri Lanka are called white tigers, brown tigers or yellow tigers depending on the colour of their skin.


War on Terror is over but the Killings haven't stopped

Sri Lankan authorities had declared that they had killed the rebel leader and decimated his group. According to them, terrorism has now been wiped out from Sri Lanka.

But the ground realities are telling us a different story. War is over but the killings haven't stopped yet. Sri Lankan government hasn't finished with the Tamils. Every Tamil man, woman and child is considered as a suspect. Under the emergency rules, Sri Lankan forces have the right to arrest or kill anybody they consider as a suspect. Living as a Tamil in Sri Lanka is like walking on a thin rope above a deep valley that is filled with deadly snakes.

So called war on terror and humanitarian operations are now over. But the killings are still continuing. One should now question whether the objectives of the war were genuine. No government on earth would bomb and kill fifty thousands people and make thirty thousands maimed and destroy an area twice the size of Singapore just to chop the head of just one rebel leader.

“Killings of Tamils” started after Sri Lanka gained independence in 1948 and this will continue till the government of Sri Lanka come up with a constructive plan to address the grievances of the Tamil community in this island.


How is the world responding to the massacre of Tamils?

Forty seven nations came together to vote on Sri Lanka. Majority voted in favour of Sri Lanka and they all took a stand that what had been happening in Sri Lanka was an internal issue. They voted to congratulate Sri Lankan Government on its victory over the Tamil Tigers and to ignore calls for an inquiry into possible war crimes.

United Nations Human Rights Council has now lost its credibility. This body has totally lost its purpose for which it exists.

According to the majority who voted in favour of Sri Lanka, their message was very clear. “No matter what Sri Lanka does to the Tamils, we will stand shoulder to shoulder with the Sri Lankan government because we also have skeletons in our closets. Let them bomb and kill innocent women and children. Let them starve them to death. Let them deny medicine to the wounded. Even if they kill all the Tamils and dump them in mass graves, we will still support this terror island because we have our own interests and hidden agendas in the region”

This is the state of the world now. Many of these countries no longer care about human rights but are only interested in satisfying their own greed.

I often wonder if voting is a great idea in emergency situations where the majority is not at all interested in saving lives but having their focus on destructive policies in order to look after their own interests.

If a building is on fire, it is not sensible to have voting and then decide not to go and save lives when the majority is not interested. We don't have voting to rescue the passengers from a sinking ship. Even if we have one, the focus will not be on whether to save the people or not but on how to save the lives.

Human Rights Council should now be discussing about helping the innocent civilians who are abused in the Nazi Style concentration camps in Sri Lanka. It is a disgrace to the whole humanity that a green light has now been given to any country that wants to wipe out its minority.


Could we have avoided this bloodshed?

The answer is “Yes”, but there were many beneficiaries in this war. Therefore many had decided not to stop the war but to let it to continue till the end, despite thousands of civilian causalities. Countries like India, China and Pakistan, who have traditionally not been in good terms, surprisingly became friends. They acted like vultures that came to an agreement to share a piece of meat, which they were desperately looking for.

Everybody knew what was happening. World leaders were listening to the casualty figures as a slow cricket commentary. Some of them made statements here and there, just for the sake of making it. Nobody had the boldness to stand up and say “STOP THE KILLINGS”. They had the power but they didn't do it.

UN was updating its score boards with the number of deaths taking place. Even when the score went up by thousands a day, they kept quite. They didn't open their mouths and speak about it.

US satellites were taking pictures of the killings but no attempts were made to stop the bloodbath. Hearts of the nations became stones and the helpless perished so that the greedy could be satisfied.

Defenders of human rights and highly paid diplomats were hearing about the horrors in Sri Lanka while having their big breakfasts. They found these stories very boring. Experts and researchers in human rights were looking forward to publish their latest journal papers instead of doing something about saving lives.

Many western countries, although some had raised their voices, their statements were not strong enough to stop a regime that was determined to carry on with its destructive agenda.

Relatives of those who were dying in Vanni went to the streets of great cities of the world. They knelt down and cried before the kings and queens. They protested through various means. We didn't hear their cry but we found them very annoying because they blocked our streets. They did all that was possible to get the message across. But their cries fell on our deaf ears. If we did listen and acted, we would have saved thousands of lives.

Our radio shows were not about the reasons for the protests but we talked about how to get these protesters out of our streets. We are now happy because there are no more Tamil protests and many of the people who they were trying to protect are now dead.

It is very clear that this war was conducted with the full support of many countries .They could have persuaded the Sri Lankan government to stop the bloodshed especially after the rebels had announced their surrender.

Bloodbath could have been avoided but nobody was interested because all went according to their plans. Partners of this war had started to reap their benefits even before it had come to an end.


Who benefited from this war?

Sri Lankan government was used as a puppet in the hands of India and China for these countries to secure their interests in the region. Everybody is happy now, apart from an innocent Tamil community that is slowly being wiped out from Sri Lanka.

Sinhala extremists who have been killing Tamils for more than sixty years in this country have a lot to rejoice for.

China has been fishing in the trouble spots of this world. It has once again achieved its goal by giving deadly weapons to the one it saw as the “strong man”. China has started many construction projects in the South of Sri Lanka including a port that will mainly be used by its Navy.

India has already started to draft project plans for oil explorations in the seas of Sri Lanka and now sending its experts to start many construction projects in the North and East of the country.

Although China and Pakistan had supplied most of the deadly weapons, they were neither involved in writing the script nor executing the script for the War.

Sri Lankan President had recently acknowledged that he fought India's war in Sri Lanka. One of the former Indian High Commissioners has confessed that India has blood on its hands but India doesn't care about the plight of the Tamils in Sri Lanka.

War in Sri Lanka was not to do with the head of the rebel leader. Making a big deal out of the body of the rebel leader and all these victory speeches were not foolish acts but they were deliberately done by parties who want to hide all the deadly snakes under their carpets.


War Crimes in Sri Lanka

Number of war crimes that had been committed by the Sri Lankan forces is more than what Saddam Hussein did to the Kurdish people.

Surrendered rebels with white flags were executed and thousands of wounded civilians were killed without mercy. Serious war crimes have been committed and the culprits are not just Sri Lankan forces but some Indian security experts, Sri Lankan and Indian politicians and UN officers.

Banned weapons (cluster and phosphorus bombs) were used against innocent men, women and children. Red Cross workers were killed. The same hospitals were repeatedly bombed. Buildings and properties were destroyed by very powerful bombs.

Innocent civilians were forced to live inside the bunkers for months. Food and medicine were denied to them.

 

Sri Lanka is still hiding the evidences

Killing more than fifty thousands, wounding thirty thousands and forcing three hundred thousands in concentration camps will not convince anybody as a genuine humanitarian or rescue operation. These people never lived as hostages in the first place.

Sri Lanka knows that serious war crimes had been committed and they are now working to hide their atrocities.

Witnesses of these war crimes are mainly the people who came out of the war zone. They saw all that happened to them and to their loved ones. One of the main reasons why the Sri Lankan forces are not allowing journalists and aid workers into the IDP (Internally Displaced People) camps is because they want to hide their crimes.

Three doctors who served the wounded people in Vanni are considered as real heroes by the international community. Instead of appreciating their efforts, Sri Lankan government has locked them up in jail in order to hide the evidences of war crimes.

War came to an end two weeks ago but the journalists and aid workers are still not allowed to the war zone. When Sri Lanka declared that the war was over and all the civilians had been rescued, there were still thousands of wounded lying in the killing fields and many frightened civilians were hiding inside the bunkers.

Mass graves have become an outdated technique for the Sri Lankan forces. Sri Lankan authorities are still not allowing any journalists or aid workers to the war zone. It is taking quite a long time for the military to dispose thousands of dead bodies.

Recent announcement by the Head of Sri Lankan armed forces about how they cremated the rebel leader’s body and threw the ashes into the sea is an indication that they are using the same technique on all the dead bodies. Sri Lankan forces might probably using mobile cremation furnaces to cremate the bodies in order to wipe out evidences.

It is obviously going to take sometime for them to finish this process considering the number of people died in the conflict. When everything is over, our BBC reporters will be taken to that area and they would tell us about a beautiful blue sky and golden flat sandy beaches in Vanni.


War crime evidences have already been collected

This is one of the controversial wars in the history. Although the Sri Lankan forces had barred all the reporters and journalists into the war zone, images and videos of the dying civilians were regularly sent out to individuals and organisations all over the world.

Communication systems were functioning in Vanni till the last minute. High resolution satellite images are available to prove the use of heavy weapons against the civilians. Last moments of the war had been captured by various technical devices.

It is a complete waste of time that Sri Lankan authorities are shutting the mouths of those in the IDP camps because many civilians who were stuck in the war zone till the last day were able to cross the waters and many had already reached the foreign shores.

Millions of evidences are already available to prove that Sri Lankan forces had committed war crimes and those who are responsible for these crimes should be brought to justice.


Horror camps for the Tamil civilians

Sri Lankan forces bombed and killed more than fifty thousands. Now they have locked three hundred thousands up in Nazi style concentration camps.

Ten to fourteen deaths are taking place daily in these notorious camps mostly among the children and elderly. Detainees are not allowed to meet their relatives and are not allowed to receive foods or cloths from their loved ones.

Sky news had recently reported about rapes and torture taking place inside these camps. Young people are disappearing daily. Dead bodies are thrown outside these camps.

Wounded and the sick and not given proper medical care. Sri Lankan government is still not allowing any international aid workers to these camps. Family members are purposely kept in separate camps in order to destroy the foundations of the entire Tamil race in Sri Lanka.


Can this happen again?

This will be repeated again in Sri Lanka or in some other parts of the world unless we bring the culprits to justice and restructure UN with the powers to deal with such wars in the future

War in Sri Lanka was orchestrated by India. Deadly weapons were given by China and Pakistan. UN and many Western Nations knew what was happening but they remained silent.

Are we going to allow something similar to happen in the future? Do these innocents have to die to satisfy the greed of some countries?

UN with its corrupt staffs has failed in their duties. They deliberately remained silent and didn't do anything constructive to stop the bloodshed although they had the ability to do so.

Sri Lankan leaders became puppets in the hands of some of these sleeping giants. Masters of this war should be brought to justice.

Role of UN in resolving any conflicts in the future is now in doubt. We desperately need an International body that can stand on its own and stop such crimes. There is no use in having an organisation that is completely powerless to stop the killings of the innocents.


Sri Lanka is now on radar

As far as Sri Lanka is concerned, Rebel leader is dead. LTTE is gone. More than fifty thousand civilians have been killed.

If everybody is happy with what they have achieved, the question is why the killings are still taking place? Tamils are still intimidated and their properties are burned throughout the country. Tamil women on the streets are harassed by Sinhala mobs.

This island might even witness another riot just like it experienced in the fifties, sixties, seventies and eighties.

Those times, they sent the Tamils to the North and East. As the whole island is now filled with uniformed Sinhala men and women with arms, Tamils will have nowhere to run for their safety.


 

Danger of another Tamil rebellion

The Tamil Diaspora is not an alien to Sri Lanka. More than ninety percent of the Tamils among the Diaspora had witnessed what happened to their friends and relatives in Vanni. They saw their brothers and sisters, fathers and mothers dying helplessly. They communicated with their loved ones till the last days of the war and they all knew what was happening. Many of them have their relatives locked up in these notorious IDP camps.

Prabhakarans are not born but they are made. He did all that he did after witnessing many horrors. He saw Tamils being burned alive in the south of Sri Lanka. He saw properties of the Tamils being destroyed by Sinhala mobs.

If the oppression against the Tamils continues, Sri Lanka and even India might one day regret creating more Prabhakarans out of the Tamils from the Diaspora.

Minority indigenous Tamils who live mainly in the north and east of the country are one of the most oppressed communities on this planet.

Future of Sri Lanka completely depends on the steps taken by the Sri Lankan government. Policies based on racial and religious supremacy, attempts to continue with Sinhalasisation of the country through systematic Sinhala settlements in the Northern and Eastern provinces will escalate the conflict further and hit deadly levels.

This may not just destabilise Sri Lanka but will even have global repercussions.


Conclusion

Sri Lankan President and his ministers have recently acknowledged that they fought India's war in Sri Lanka with the help of the weapons from China and Pakistan. Half of their crimes have now been confessed verbally by the Sri Lankan authorities.

Sri Lankan leaders have now become puppets in the hands of two emerging superpowers that are competing with each other. A conflict that was once confined within the boundaries of Sri Lanka has now become an international issue. Sri Lankan military muscles have now been artificially strengthened by their new masters. A country that once spoke to the West with a humble voice has now started to challenge many countries.

China's opposition in the Security Council for the Sri Lankan conflict to be discussed in the formal meetings is an obvious evidence for China's role in Sri Lanka's war.

India, China and Pakistan found themselves on the same side with Sri Lanka in the United Nations Human Rights council. They all voted against war crime probes over alleged war crimes committed by Sri Lankan forces. This clearly shows that they all have blood on their hands.

Defendants of human rights and the world powers who fought many wars to restore freedom for their own citizens have now seen the faces of the master magicians who orchestrated the war in Sri Lanka.

Although India gave the strategic directions and China provided with the weapons for the war, it was the Sri Lankan armed forces that carried out the massacre of Tamil civilians. A country that is well known for slowly wiping out its minorities found a perfect opportunity to cause maximum damage to the innocent Tamils with the blessing of their new masters.

Now it is time for the civilized to world to decide whether to allow the Sri Lankan government and its friends who had caused so many thousands of deaths, to run these controversial Nazi style concentration camps.

We have all failed to save many lives in this war but it is still not too late to save the innocents that are still being abused, raped, tortured and killed in the barbed wired concentration camps.

When Justice failed in Teardrop Terror Island! [May. 21st, 2009|11:40 pm]
[Tags|, , , , , , ]

 

Sixty years of State Terrorism in Sri Lanka

BBC journalist with the jubilant crowd in Colombo was telling us, how terrorism has now been defeated in Sri Lanka. It is a clear indication that the world still hasn't grasped the fundamental root cause behind the civil unrest in this country.

State terrorism has always been the major problem in this tiny island. It is an ugly and arrogant monster that always keeps his head above the seas and mountains of Sri Lanka.



 Tamils were killed and their properties were burned in the seventies by Sinhala mobs


For more than sixty years, successive Sri Lankan governments backed by racist Sinhala extremists have been oppressing the Tamil minorities. They brutally killed thousands of innocent Tamils, burnt their properties and sent the rest in ships as refugees to the North of the country in the fifties, sixties, seventies and eighties.

 When Tamils asked for their rights, Sinhala extremists always responded with violence.

 

 

Pearl of the Indian ocean has now become a land of the demons

They have now killed thousands of innocent Tamils in one of the most cruel wars in the history of the mankind. They used internationally banned weapons on innocent women and children and murdered them without showing any mercy.

 They kept on using the buzz words “War on Terror” and “Humanitarian Operation” to justify their atrocities. They made the people to starve for months, denied medicine from the sick the elderly and let the wounded to die in the open fields.



 Innocent women and children were killed in hospitals, schools and even inside bunkers. Thousands of wounded civilians were burnt alive in the bunkers.

 They brutally killed the rebels who surrendered with white flags and violated all the norms of a conventional war.

 They are now busy burning and dumping the bodies of innocent Tamils.

 Media and aid workers are not allowed to the war zone because the Sri Lankan forces are working day and night to hide all the evidences.

 Those who did manage to leave the war zone were sent to barbed wired concentration camps. Sri Lankan forces are regularly filtering out young people from the concentration camps and taking them for questioning. Many of these children don't return.


Hospitals were bombed



 Young Tamil women are raped and tortured in these notorious camps. Dead bodies of the innocent Tamils are thrown outside the camps with deep wounds on their heads and necks.

 Forced disappearances, random killings, rape, torture and the list goes on. Sri Lanka has become one of the worst countries in the world that telling the truth is considered as a crime and those who tell the truth are punished.

 Pearl of the Indian ocean has now become a land of blood thirsty demons.

 

 

 

Experts of the free world have failed to see the bigger picture

 

Many military strategists, political analysts and terror experts in the free world have either failed to recognise the deeper issues in Sri Lanka or they have deliberately applied a methodology to cause one of the greatest humanitarian tragedies of the century.

 In any conflict resolution or problem solving exercise, one of the most important parts is to see a bigger picture and define the problem accurately.

What goes wrong very often is that the parties who come forward to solve an issue tend to focus on just part of the problem or they try to deal with the symptoms instead of the root cause.

 It will be worse, when a party deliberately implement a wrong solution to a problem with hidden agendas.

 When they do that, they don't just fail to solve the main issue but they even end up making the real problem much bigger.

 Complexities in the Sri Lankan civil war very often make even the so called wise to misinterpret the truths and make decisions against the vulnerable in the society.

 A complete jigsaw puzzle that shows a crying baby can be made into a monster if half of the pieces are removed.

 Instead of becoming sympathetic towards the crying baby, the jigsaw player is now confronted with a monster that is made up of half of the pieces.

 Those who considered that LTTE was the only problem had failed to understand that they were missing half of the pieces in the puzzle.

 Implementing solutions without understanding a problem can cost innocent lives and what has happened in Sri Lanka in the last few months is a proof for this.

 

 

Lessons from Medicine

 

A fever is considered as one of the body's immune mechanisms to attempt a neutralization of a perceived threat inside the body, be it bacterial or viral. Carl Wunderlich discovered that fever is not a disease, but the body's response to a disease.

 Any sensible Physician would try to find out the root cause of the disease instead of wasting time dealing with the symptoms.

 Disease in Sri Lanka is State Terrorism that has been going on for more than 60 years.

 Unless the root cause is dealt with, Sri Lanka will continue to hear the voice of the oppressed louder and louder.

 

 

 

Mankind has already lost its sanity

 

When BBC and other channels in the UK gave importance to the celebrations in Colombo but failed to mention about the thousands of wounded and dying Tamils in the war zone, one has to question if the mankind has already lost its sanity.

 We can't bring peace to the trouble spots in the world with people who have heads but no hearts.

 We desperately need diplomats who have the hearts for the oppressed and suffering people

 

Story of the Tamils


Tamils in Sri Lanka had their own nation before but it was merged with the Sinhala kingdoms during the British rule

 When they left this beautiful island in 1948, it was left to function as one country. Democracy failed in Sri Lanka because the successive governments that came to power were always chosen by the majority Sinhalese.

 Sinhala governments backed by the Sinhala Buddhist extremists, always tried to please the majority in order to remain in power. They came up with policies to discriminate Tamils in education, employment and other arenas. Sinhala was made the only official language and Tamils were made as second class citizens.

Tamils can be compared to the Jewish people who lived under the Nazi regimes. Even under persecution, they worked hard to make their lives better.

 Sinhala governments had many times ordered their agents to kill Tamils and destroy their properties. More than two thousand Tamils lost their lives in 1983.All of them were murdered by the Sinhalese in the south of Sri Lanka. They were murdered in prisons, schools, hospitals and even in churches.

 

Successive Sinhala governments had implemented several state sponsored colonisation schemes that Tamil villages and towns were turned into Sinhala settlements. Many homes and farms in the eastern and north eastern provinces were forcefully taken from the Tamils and were given to the Sinhalese. Names of roads and towns in Tamil areas were changed from Tamil to Sinhala.

 

 

Tamil Libraries and cultural buildings were burned to dust in order to wipe out the history of Tamils from Sri Lanka. Highly intelligent Tamil youth were denied University places.



Jaffna library was burned by the Sinhala mob in 1981 (At that time it was the biggest in South Asia)
 

In 1981, Sinhala politicians ordered a Sinhala mob to burn and destroy the Jaffna public library. At that time it was South Asia's biggest library. The 95,000 volumes of the Public Library destroyed by the fire included numerous culturally important and irreplaceable manuscripts.

 

Saving innocent lives is one of the greatest things we can do to show to the world that we obey our conscience and we are still humans.

After years of oppression under murderous Sinhala regimes, frustrated Tamil youth took arms to fight for the survival of Tamils and to reclaim the Tamil Kingdom that they had lost during the British rule.

 

 

Sri Lanka is no longer a safe place for the Vulnerable

 

Sadly, one of the greatest humanitarian tragedies of the century is taking place in front of our eyes.

Intervention of India and China has made the Sri Lankan ethnic issue much more complex . While the dogs are fighting for a bone, innocent Tamil civilians are dying like flies.

Response from the individuals, politicians, international organisations and heads of the states have shown to us that Sri Lanka is no longer a safe place for the victims but the wicked has a lot to rejoice for.

Justice has failed in this tear drop terror island. Killing fields of Sri Lanka are flowing with the blood of innocent men, women and children.

Tamils are persecuted in concentration camps. Young men and women are disappearing daily from these torture chambers.

 

If we are going to wait till we get the permission from Sri Lanka, that is never going to happen. A killer who is busy dumping the bodies of the innocents is not going to invite us and show us how cruel he is.

Urgent steps should be taken to save the dying Tamils from the hands of the brutal Sri Lankan regime.

Lies and Deceptions! Comical Alis of Sri Lanka! [May. 19th, 2009|08:40 pm]
[Tags|, , , , , , ]

 By Richard Dixon

(This article was originally posted to Telegraph on 20th of April 2009)

  

"I am not worried about the opinion of the Tamil people... now we cannot think of them, not about their lives or their opinion... the more you put pressure in the north, the happier the Sinhala people will be here... Really if I starve the Tamils out, the Sinhala people will be happy."

J.R.Jayawardene, Former President of Sri Lanka - Daily Telegraph, 11th July 1983



Comical Alis of Sri Lanka

 

Young Tamil men and women are regularly taken in mysterious white vans, tortured, raped and sometime killed, while they are in custody. Tamils are forced out of their homes and lands and made to live in open fields and in barbed wired camps. Food and medicine are regularly denied to Tamils and they are a let to die of starvation and diseases.

 

Those who live in the open fields are bombed and killed daily in hundreds and thousands. So called Sri Lankan safe zone for Tamils has become the killing fields of Sri Lanka. The country that was called as a paradise on earth has become a real hell. Demons of destruction are dancing in the lakes of blood. Rockets, shells, cluster bombs, phosphorous bombs and other dangerous weapons are used by the Sri Lankan forces to kill innocent Tamil civilians. In order to hide the truth from the international community, Sri Lankan government has cowardly barred reporters and journalists from entering the safe zone.


 Unexploded clustor bomb found in Vanni
 

Tamils are treated as infidels by the Sinhala Buddhist extremists. Although the extremists are only a minority among the Sinhalese, they have been successful in influencing politicians, military leaders and ordinary Sinhala people to incite racial hatred, violence and discrimination against Tamils for the last 60 years. Buddhist extremism has gone to the extreme levels that more than six thousand innocent Tamils were killed and twenty thousands have been seriously wounded just within the last three months.

 

While killing hundreds of innocent Tamils daily, some of the ministers from the jumbo cabinet of Sri Lanka, travel around the world with their dry clean suites to convince the world that they are wiping our terrorism. They deny all the atrocities that are being committed against innocent children and women. Sri Lankan government is spending substantial amount of money to spread false propaganda in the western world to justify their actions.

Cat that drinks milk with closed eyes think that nobody is watching. Sri Lankan government doesn't understand that they can't keep on fooling the international community as the images of the dying Tamils are regularly sent to all over the world via satellites. Wide screens in the west are beginning to show the video clips of children and women running for their lives from cluster bombs.

No matter what these Comical Alis of Sri Lanka tell the world, facts will always speak the truth. I have been listening to some of the comments that are being repeated by the mouth pieces of the Sri Lankan government officials but found real contradictions between the ground realities and their statements.

 

As I did before, I went on the streets of London and asked the Tamil people about what they think of these statements. There are more than three hundred thousands Tamils currently living in London and most of them have their closed relatives stuck in the killing fields of Sri Lanka. There represent the suffering masses in the so called safe zone and their views reflect the realities on the ground.
 

These are some of the controversial statements regularly made by the Sri Lankan government in the Western media. Are they really telling us the truth?

 

1. Sri Lankan forces are not firing into the safe zone

 

2 We are liberating the people of Vanni from the clutches of LTTE

 

3 We are facing a hostage situation here. This is just like how the Russians were dealing with the Bersian school hostage crisis.

 

4 We don't use food and medicine as the weapons of war

 

5 This is one of the biggest humanitarian operations in the 21st century

 

6 Many Tamils are living happily in the South of Sri Lanka

 

7 We are treating the IDPs well in the Camps

 

8 Some Tamil leaders are now joining us

 

9 We will destroy the LTTE completely

 

10 We have international support to defeat terrorism in Sri Lanka

 

11 Many Tamils prefer to live with the Sinhalese

 

12 These Tamil protesters in the west are trying to give a lifeline to LTTE, but they don't care about the innocent Tamils in Sri Lanka.

 

13 We don't have any racial problems in Sri Lanka but LTTE is the real issue?

 

14 LTTE has committed so many blunders and they are not the representatives of Tamils

 

15 There are only sixty thousand civilians currently living in the safe zone

 

16 Sri Lankan forces are one of the best in the world but LTTE are just Terrorists.

 

17 LTTE is a terror group like Al-Qaeda

 

18 What we have in Sri Lanka is an internal issue therefore we don't want any interference from the outside world.

 

19 LTTE uses violence therefore EU and the US shouldn't talk to them.

 

20 We wouldn't be winning this war without the help from India

 

21 We are fighting with the most ruthless Terrorist group in the world.


22 Ceasefire agreement with Tamils failed because LTTE walked out of it

 

23 Tamils are not the original inhabitants of Sri Lanka. They were brought by the British to work in tea plantations.

 

24 LTTE is still forcefully recruiting under age children

 

25 We have liberated the majority of civilians from LTTE and now we are prepared to receive help from the international community to look after the IDPs.We will still not allow Journalists to go into the Safe Zone.


 

Sri Lankan forces are not firing into the safe zone

Although, reporters and journalists are not allowed into the war zone, there are still ICRC, local aid organizations and other Christian charities working among the people. Deaths, that are taking place in the war zone are regularly documented with picture and video evidences and transmitted via the satellites to the outside world. Several web sites are regularly blogging and journaling the war crimes in Sri Lanka.


 Safe zone is no longer safe for the Tamils

 

Sri Lankan government will not be able to escape from the crimes, it is committing against the innocent Tamils in Sri Lanka. Many Tamils who live outside Sri Lanka have lost their loved ones in the hands of the Sri Lankan forces. Evidences documented from the eye witnesses, fully suggests that Tamils are killed in hospitals, schools, tents, bunkers and open grounds by the rockets and shells fired by the Sri Lankan forces. They are also using cluster bombs and phosphorous bombs against innocent civilians.

 


We are liberating the people of Vanni from the clutches of LTTE

You can't just separate LTTE from the civilians. These civilians who are stuck in the war zone are mostly the mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters and children of those who are fighting at the front lines. Liberating the civilians from LTTE is completely an illogical statement. Tamils who lived with LTTE in Vanni all these years had more freedom than the ones who live in the other parts of the country under the Sri Lankan government.


People of Vanni lived happily under the civil administration ran by the LTTE for six years. LTTE looked after the them well. They built colleges and hospitals. They built orphanages. They trained the youth in various fields. They respected all the religions therefore people had the freedom to worship in Churches, Temples and Mosques. Crime rates were very low in Vanni. There was no corruption. Women were given the equal opportunities in every area. LTTE was running a secular government just like the ones in the Western countries.



Bombing hospitals is a war crime.



But the Tamils who live in areas that are controlled by the Sri Lankan government live in fear of abductions and torture. They have no freedom of speech. Churches are burned and Pastors are killed very often. Sri Lankan government is even trying to bring an anti conversion law to lock up Christian pastors in jails. Not just the Tamil journalists but even the Sinhala journalists and politicians who support the Tamils in their struggle are also kidnapped and killed.

 

Some Tamils did choose to go into the barbed wired camps run by the government not because they have any trust in the government. Sri Lankan government is deliberately preventing food and medicine reaching to the needy in the safe zone. Civilians are killed daily by bombs and shells. Some Tamils think that they might probably survive longer and get treatment for their wounds if they go and live in the camps. Many have later regretted of making this choice as there are reports of rape and murder in these notorious camps.

 

Trying to force the Tamils from the land of freedom into the land of bondage is not liberation. Sri Lankan forces are not liberating the Tamils from LTTE but they are just wiping out Tamils.

This is not a war of liberation but genocide in the disguise of Humanitarian operation.

 

We are facing a hostage situation here. This is just like how the Russians were dealing with the Bersian school hostage crisis.

 

This is another fabricated lie. The whole situation is purposely orchestrated by the Sri Lankan authorities with a hidden agenda. They are pretending to the world that they are involved in a humanitarian mission to rescue the Tamils from LTTE. These people never lived as hostages in the first place. They lived happily and they didn’t need rescuing.

 

Few months ago, fifty thousands Sri Lankan forces rounded up three big cities in the Vanni region with Tanks, Multi Barrel rocket launchers and all other heavy weapons. They started moving towards the inner core and kept shelling towards civilian areas, seven days week, twenty four hours a day, in order to capture and kill just few hundreds of LTTE leaders and destroy their military capacity.


 So called humanitarian operation by Sri Lankan armed forces

 

People started moving away from the borders, fearing that they would get killed by the bombs and shells. Sri Lankan Air Force was using cluster bombs to destroy hospitals, schools, churches and temples inside the cities so that they could kill the LTTE cadres that might be hiding in these public places. They ended up killing only the civilians. Hospitals could no longer be used to treat and care for the wounded because all the buildings had been destroyed.

 

Sri Lankan government stopped sending adequate medicine and food for the people and the reason given was that they were preventing the LTTE members from taking the food and medicine for themselves. Some people were managing to escape the war zone but they were sent to barbed wired camps in Vavuniya.

 

People were hiding inside the bunkers throughout the day. Sri Lankan government suddenly declared a safe zone in a tiny strip of land and asked everybody to move into the new zone. So people were moving in and started to live in tents. They are not protected from the rain, sun and the shells pouring over them.

 

Sri Lankan forces had recently reached the borders of this tiny over populated Safe Zone and had started to use heavy weapons on innocent civilians. People are now getting killed in thousands. They are making the people to starve. They let them to die with their wounds because people don't have access to proper medical care.

 

Now the Sri Lankan government is telling the world that they are involved in a massive humanitarian operation to save the innocents from few LTTE members. They take some of the wounded people, children and women and releasing the video clips to the media, in order to convince the World that they are really caring for the innocent civilians.

 

Sri Lankan government is killing its own people in thousands not because they want to capture the LTTE leaders but to eliminate Tamils from Sri Lanka.

 

What is the outcome of this operation? More than 300000 people have lost their homes and livelihoods. More than 10000 innocent Tamils have lost their lives. More 25000 are injured and many of them had their limbs amputated. Those who have so far managed to escape the war have been sent to barbed wired concentration camps.

 

All that the Sri Lankan government has now done is that they have made Tamils all over the world to strengthen their struggle to free their brethren from oppression. Tamils will never be able to trust the Sinhala Buddhist governments.

 


We don't use food and medicine as the weapons of war

According to the reports coming from the medical sources in Vanni, thousands of people could have been saved if they had the necessary treatments and medicine. Doctors still have to amputate hands and legs without anaesthesia under the trees. Caesarean operations are done without any pain relieves. Many are dying without antibiotics.




No more hospitals. Wounded are treated in open grounds



People are shelled and killed even when they are lining up to collect food for their babies at the hospitals. Recent reports suggest that children are dying of malnutrition in Vanni. What else the Sri Lankan government has to say about these horrific crimes?



This is one of the biggest humanitarian operations in the 21st century

This is one of the best jokes by a democratic government who is wiping out a race from the face of this earth in the disguise of humanitarian operation and liberation.

 

As part of the so called humanitarian and rescue operation, Sri Lankan forces surrounded an area that is much bigger than greater London and bombed and destroyed all the hospitals, schools, orphanages and old people homes. They destroyed farms, fruit trees and the cattle belonging to the people who have lived there for years. They dropped cluster bombs and killed so many thousand innocent people including children, women and old people.

 

They forced people into starvation and made them to live in tents and bunkers for months. All this was, according to them, just to catch or kill few hundreds LTTE fighters that are living among more than three hundred thousands of innocent Tamil civilians.


 Fellowship of the dead No value for human lives

 

After bombing the whole area and causing so much devastation for more than three months, these comical Alis are telling the world that they facing a hostage situation here. What kind of lie is this? Just because they barred the reporters and journalist, they expect the world to believe their fairy tales.

 

The man who is leading the military operation had said to the Canadian media recently, that Sri Lanka is the land of the Sinhalese, and Tamils can only live under their mercy. Unfortunately there is no more mercy left in the hearts of these military leaders so they have decided to eliminate Tamils in the disguise of a greatest humanitarian operation.

 


Many Tamils are living happily in the South of Sri Lanka


Tamils living in any parts of Sri Lanka, live under the fear of intimidation, torture, rape, abduction and murder. Tamils are subjected to random arrests in the south of Sri Lanka and they are kept in prisons indefinitely without any charges. Tamils in Sri Lanka are treated like how Nazi Germany treated the Jewish people during the Second World War.

 

One of the main reasons why Tamils come to Colombo is because they use this as a base to leave the country. Passport office, high commissions and visa offices are located in Colombo. Colombo has the only international Airport in Sri Lanka. It is not always easier for people go abroad within a short period of time, therefore Tamils sometime have to live there for few years in lodges before getting the opportunity to leave the country. Tamils are sometime taken away from these lodges and forcefully sent to the North in buses by the Sri Lankan government.

 

The second reason for some of the Tamils living in Colombo is because most of the head offices of the government departments are located in Colombo. Those Tamils who work at these head offices have no alternatives but to live in Colombo. Tamils who live on Colombo never consider this city as their real home.

 

Most of the homes, schools and hospitals in the Northern and Eastern provinces of the Sri Lanka have been totally destroyed by the war. Sri Lanka has dropped more bombs in the Tamil land than the ones that were dropped during the Vietnam War. Most of the areas are no longer habitable because of land mines and unexploded bombs. Tamils living in the North and East are still murdered in masses by cluster bombs and shells.

 

Although Tamils are randomly arrested and taken away by security forces in the South, Government doesn't use cluster bombs and shells in these areas. If they were to use these weapons in the south, the would end up killing the Sinhala civilians as well, which they will never do.

 

This is the third reason why some Tamils choose to live in the south. Because the probability of getting killed in the North and East is much higher than in the South. This doesn't deny the fact that Tamils still live in fear of abductions, random arrests and extrajudicial killings in the south as well. In the past, many times Tamils living in the south were killed in Thousands and their properties were burned.

 


We are treating the IDPs well in the Camps

Those who come out of the safe zone are kept like prisoners in the barbed wired camps. People are not allowed to meet their relatives. Young men and women are filtered out and taken for questioning, but many of them don't return. Diseases are spreading inside the camps as the people don't have access to clean water. Many Tamils in these camps suffer from severe depression. Sri Lankan government very often conduct some pre arranged staged tours for the foreign diplomats and give a completely a wrong picture to the outside world. They will not be able to play these games forever


Some Tamil leaders are now joining us

Few Tamil politicians joining the ruling government just for personal and selfish reasons. Tamil people don't support such politicians, but see them as betrayers of their own race. What such politicians speak doesn’t reflect the views of ordinary Tamils in Sri Lanka. These hypocritical leaders can be compared to some of the Jewish leaders who deny the holocaust and western youth who join Al-Qaeda to become suicide bombers. We are so sure that the Western countries have now identified such leaders therefore they will not treat them as the representatives of Tamils.


We will destroy the LTTE completely

LTTE is a tangible manifestation of the disappointment and frustration from the Tamil community that has been oppressed for so many years. Unless the genuine grievances of the Tamil people are dealt with, the voice of the oppressed will be heard louder and louder.

 

The idea of destroying the LTTE itself shows, that the Sri Lankan government and its strategic partners that are supporting this war, haven't understood the longing of the Tamils. LTTE fighters that are defending their territory are not supernatural beings but mere mortals. The way how the Sri Lankan forces are using cluster bombs and phosphorous bombs to kill the innocents in Vanni, they might even end up destroying the whole region with all the living and non living things, while the international community sit adamantly and witness the genocide of Tamils on their wide screens.

 

If they succeed in killing everybody in Vanni, Will this quench the burning fire in the hearts of the Tamils to fight for their freedom? Everyday the innocents are dying, more and more Tamils both in Sri Lanka and overseas are beginning to commit themselves for a just and true cause. Masters of this war are sowing the seeds for a bigger conflict in the future instead of finding a solution through peaceful means.

 

Sri Lankan government may succeed in legally banning the four letter word LTTE and the tiger flag in all the countries of this world. Will this stop the Tamils from continuing their fight to have their rights to live without the fear of torture, murder, rape and intimidation? Why can't the war mongers understand the reality that they will never be able to suppress a genuine struggle for freedom with sophisticated weapons?

 

If you force a little boy into the water and try to stop him from breathing, the boy will use all his strength to fight back to come out of water so that he can breathe. Today, Tamils in Sri Lanka are denied the right to live, therefore it is a natural instinct to fight back. As long as the oppression continues,Tamils will fight back with all that they have to free their people from the murderous regimes of Sri Lanka.

 

LTTE is not just few hundreds Tamils who carry guns and rocket launchers. LTTE has now evolved into a people organisation that is supported by millions of Tamils in Sri Lanka and overseas. It is no longer an armed group that you can defeat them with weapons. If the Sri Lankan government were to get rid of LTTE, they would have to kill most of the Tamils in Sri Lanka and overseas which is not all a feasible option though they might succeed in killing the Tamils in Sri Lanka if the international community don't intervene.

 

Instead of wasting money and efforts in killing the Tamils, Sri Lankan government should listen to the Tamils and give them the freedom to make their choice.


 

We have international support to defeat terrorism in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is now slowly breaking its ties with the West because they don't like to be criticized for the worst human violations in the country. They are now maintaining close links with China, Iran, Libya, Pakistan and other countries that have poor records for human rights.


 Sri Lankan defence secretary in China with top military officials

 

Killing fields of Sri Lanka are functioning well with the help of cluster bombs, phosphorous bombs and other chemical weapons that are freely given by these countries. Sri Lanka also receives financial support from their current allies.

 

China is backing the war because eighty percent of the oil and minerals for China is transported via the seas of Sri Lanka. China has no enmity with the Tamils but they want to keep the Sinhala politicians happy so that they can secure their interests in the Indian Ocean. Pakistan is giving weapons in order to compete with India in the region. Iran wants to find a new friend in Sri Lanka. Countries that are part of the free world are now alienating themselves from Sri Lanka.

 

Many Tamils prefer to live with the Sinhalese

 

Tamils have gone through real hell in the hands of the Sinhala racist governments all these years. All that Tamils desire is to live with freedom and dignity in their traditional homeland without being oppressed by another race.

 

There are many peace loving Sinhala people in Sri Lanka. Several academics, human rights activists, journalists, and professionals from the Sinhala community are supporting the Tamils in their struggle for freedom. Some Tamils even tend to intermarry with the Sinhalese.

 

This doesn't mean that Tamils can live safely in the Sinhala areas. Many times in the past, Tamils were killed in thousands and their properties were burned by Sinhala Buddhist extremists. This has been going on for more than 60 years.

 


These Tamil protesters in the west are trying to give a lifeline to LTTE, but they don't care about the innocent Tamils in Sri Lanka.

Tamils who live in the west, have loved ones dying in the killing fields of Sri Lanka. They are doing a sensible thing by protesting on the streets of Western cities. Western countries always give respect for the voice of the people. These countries know that millions of Tamils living in the foreign countries represent their own flesh suffering in Sri Lanka. Tamils believe that the greatest democracies in the West will definitely come for their rescue.



More than hundred thousands Tamils were protesting in London
 

You can't separate LTTE and the people who live in the safe zone. These people have lived under the LTTE administration for more than six years. Most of them have their loved ones fighting at the front lines. Every one of them has contributed towards the freedom struggle. In theory the civilians in the safe zone are indeed part of LTTE and you can't separate the people from LTTE.

 

Tamils are fighting to save the lives of the innocents who are killed by a brutal Sinhala regime. Screams of the dying Tamils are not reaching to the far away lands because the Sri Lankan government has deliberately banned the media. Tamil Diaspora has become their mouth piece so that the voice of the oppressed can be heard loudly.

 


We don't have any racial problems in Sri Lanka but LTTE is the real issue?

This doest need much explanation. You can look back the history and see what happened to the Tamils all these years in Sri Lanka. LTTE got into the scene only thirty years ago after Tamils realised that they couldn't get freedom through democratic means. Tamils are being persecuted for more than sixty years. Dealing with the root cause is always the sensible way to resolve a problem than fighting with the symptoms.

 


LTTE has committed so many blunders and they are not the representatives of Tamils

LTTE didn't fall from the sky. They started with few members more than thirty years ago and they have now evolved into a people organisation that is capable of running a civil government for Tamils. They have proved it by doing it.

 

Nobody can deny that LTTE also made some mistakes. They have acknowledged it. Even the mature governments in the West sometime make mistakes but that doesn't disqualify them from governing the people. What is right and wrong can't always be defined in absolute terms because not everyone knows the bigger picture in which some of the decisions were made by LTTE.

 

Just because LTTE made few tactical mistakes in the early stages, you can't just write them off. Tamils never stopped supporting the LTTE. LTTE is the only Tamil liberation group that has never deviated from its strategic objectives which is to get a separate state, so that Tamils can live with freedom and dignity without fear and intimidation.

 

Millions of Tamils, who have been protesting in the great cities of the world, is a proof that Tamils trust in LTTE but not in any other groups that work with the Sri Lankan government.

 

 

There are only Fifteen Thousands of civilians currently living in the safe zone

Sri Lankan government has been deliberately lying to the outside world about the number of civilians within the safe zone. Three months ago there were around 350000. 190000 have already left the safe zone which means there are still 160000 left there. But the government is telling the world that there are only 15000.

 

This brings real fears in the minds of the Tamil community that the Sri Lankan government is going mass murder Tamils and tell the world that they haven't done anything. There are reliable reports that the Sri Lankan forces have used chemical weapons against the rebels and civilians recently and killed more than six hundreds in one single day. Sri Lankan forces had even burned all the bodies of the victims therefore this has raised a real suspicion among the Tamils about the intention of Sri Lanka in lying to the world about the number of people in the safe zone.



Sri Lankan forces are one of the best in the world but LTTE are just Terrorists.

Compared to the Sri Lankan forces, LTTE has got a much disciplined conventional force that complies with Geneva conventions. For example LTTE treat the fallen government fighters with respect. But the Sri Lankan soldiers very often make fun of the fallen LTTE fighters.

 

In one particular instance, the Sri Lankan forces paraded the naked bodies of the women LTTE fighters in a busy Sinhala town. The world knows very well how the Sri Lankan forces were blamed for raping the women in Haiti while being engaged in the UN peace keeping mission.


 Sri Lankan army that is trained to Kill
 

In recent days there are very reliable reports that Sri Lankan forces are making the Tamil civilians to walk naked at the check points for few hundred meters. Sri Lankan soldiers are also involved in looting jewellery and valuables from the Tamil homes in Vanni and then selling these items in the South. How can such military be the best in the world?


LTTE is a terror group like Al-Qaeda

Actually this is the other way round. Al -Qaeda and Sri Lankan terror regimes have many similarities. Al Qaeda are Muslim extremists who terrorize people in the name of Allah. They treat the non Muslims as infidels. Sinhala Buddhist extremists treat Tamils as infidels the same way how Al-Qaeda treat the westerners.

 

Muslim extremists use Quran as their source of hatred and the Sinhalese in Sri Lanka have a holy book called Mahavamsa, a book with controversial writings, full of hatred towards the Tamils. Sri Lankan governments backed by the Sinhala Buddhist extremists have been killing Tamils for more than 60 years because the Buddhists in Sri Lanka delight in eliminating Tamils.

 Form of Buddhism that preaches violence and hatred against Tamils

 

Sinhalese believe that they doing something great by following the hatred teachings and stories from their holy book. This book is very specific to Sri Lanka and not used by Buddhists in other countries. Buddhism in Sri Lanka is not the peaceful one that is preached by Dalai Lama in Tibet. One of the former prime ministers of Sri Lanka was assassinated by a Buddhist monk.


What we face in Sri Lanka is an internal issue therefore we don't want any interference from the outside world.

Sri Lankan government twists its tongues depending on what they want to achieve. It was indeed an internal issue but the Sri Lankan government has demonised the Tamil struggle by telling the world that Tamils are terrorists and they had links with Al-Qaeda. They did false propaganda all over the world by spending so much money to suppress the liberation struggle of Tamils.


They convinced the world that Tamils are terrorists and launched the 'War on Terror' game with the blessing of some countries. They are using this as an excuse for killing the Tamils in thousands.

 

As the international community begins to object what is really happening, the government of Sri Lanka now turns around and say that it is an internal issue. What is happening in Sri Lanka should be now seen as an international issue. China, Pakistan, Iran and Libya are fuelling the fire and have artificially strengthened the military muscles of Sri Lanka.

 

They are doing it for their own strategic interests and Tamils have become worse than animals in their eyes. China not allowing the Sri Lankan issue not being discussed in the Security council itself shows why this should now been seen as an international issue. UN should use the “Responsibility to Protect” act to save the Tamils from total annihilation.




LTTE uses violence therefore EU and the US shouldn't talk to them.

Sinhala Buddhist governments have been mass murdering Tamils for more than 60 years. They use abductions, extrajudicial killing, forced disappearances, torture, murder and rape to eliminate Tamils. When the Tamils tried to defend themselves through democratic means, Sri Lankan governments always responded with more and more violence.

 

Tamil rebels took up arms to defend the innocent Tamils from the racist regimes. EU and the US are now beginning to see the impure motives of the Sri Lankan government. It is not the Tamils that are violent but the Sinhala governments who bomb and kill the innocent Tamils are the real offenders.

When Hitler killed the Jewish people, the free world declared war on fascism. UK, France and the US fought against the Nazis and brought freedom to many. Buddhist Sinhala regimes in Sri Lanka rule Tamils with the rod of terror. State terrorism backed by the racist Sinhala Buddhist leaders is taking the lives of so many thousands of Tamils every year. Defending the Tamils from this terror is not violence but it is a struggle for freedom.

If some nations have a policy of not speaking to those who use violence, they should stop speaking to the Sri Lankan government and start to listen to the Tamil community who are the real victims of state Terror.

 


We wouldn't be winning this war without the help from India


 

Tamils from Sri Lanka maintain much closed ties with the people of India. More than 65 million people in India speak the same language.Tamils in India have been protesting against the war in Sri Lanka for months.

However, India is backing the war in Sri Lanka for various reasons. Although China, Pakistan, Iran and Libya are supplying most of the arms, India is the one providing all the intelligence and moral support to the Sri Lankan authorities.

In this aspect, we agree with what the Sri Lankan masters are saying. Sri Lanka can't be fighting this war on its own without the support it gets from India.



Indian military in Sri Lanka (Intelligence gathering)



Prolong silence of the co chairs, during this war has raised doubts that they also have a role in this war. Sri Lankan authorities asked the UN, Foreign NGOs and Media to leave the Vanni region before starting this ugly war. They barred aid workers, reporters and journalists so that the world wouldn't know about the use of chemical weapons and cluster bombs. But nobody raised their voices apart from making few empty statements.

Co Chairs have never expected so much of civilian causalities. Recent statements by Hillary Clinton about the post LTTE scenario and her disappointment with the Sri Lankan government for dragging this war and causing so much pain to the civilians give a clear indication that Sri Lanka was given the ahead for this war but was not given the permission to kill so many innocent civilians.

Sri Lankan government backed by the Buddhist extremists have used this opportunity to kill innocent Civilians in a mass scale to carry out their racist agenda. They have won this War not that they have eliminated LTTE but they have succeeded in killing thousands of Tamils and made them refugees in their own land. They have been doing this successfully for the last 60 years.

Tamils believe that the US and other western countries have now understood their struggle for freedom after hearing the loud voices from the Tamil Diaspora. As Hillary Clinton has indicated, Western countries are now very disappointed with the Sri Lankan government, firstly for causing so many civilian causalities and secondly for doing a false propaganda in the west to demonise the Tamil struggle in order to launch a war against innocent Tamils.

Sri Lanka won’t be looking for any more help from India and the western countries once they have fulfilled their hidden agendas. Money and weapons that are pumped from China and Iran will keep the Sri Lankan rulers happy.

However, Tamils in Sri Lanka will continue to be friendly with India and the West and we trust that the western nations and India will save the Tamils from annihilation.


 

We are fighting with the most ruthless Terrorist group in the world.

When a step father is abusing the children for a long time, the children will eventually begin to fight back. One child may cry, another one would shout to protest and the one of them might one day take a hammer and hit him back on his head after years of abuse. If the social workers blame the child who is a real victim and to support the step father, he will continue to abuse and even start killing the children.

 

Sri Lankan government who is like a step father for Tamils has managed to convince the world to tie the hands of the Tamils so that he can continue to abuse them. Nations have now started to realise that they have been deceived by the Sri Lankan government.

 

What we are seeing in Sri Lanka is like a step father who is taking revenge on a child who had the guts to fight back. Sadly, it has taken quite a long time for many countries to see the real picture. But it is still not too late for the Nations to save the Tamils.

 

Real terrorists are not the Tamils but the Sinhala regimes who use their holy book called Mahavamsa to back their cruelty and injustice against Tamils.

 

 

Ceasefire agreement with Tamils failed because LTTE walked out of it

Sri Lankan government was putting a big show and pretending to the world that they were talking peace with tigers but in reality they were not willing to deal with the grievances of Tamils . For instance, Tamils requested the Sri Lankan government to withdraw its armed forces from churches, temples, hospitals and schools that are in the North and East. They wanted this to happen to create an atmosphere, so that both parties can talk about the important issues.

 

Sri Lankan government was instead bringing more and more troops and arms to the Tamil areas for future battles while talking peace with Tigers. Sri Lankan government not showing any genuine commitment was the main reason why the ceasefire came to an end without any fruitful results.



Tamils are not the inhabitants of Sri Lanka. They were brought by the British to work in Tea plantations.

 

Tamils in Sri Lanka are there for more than two thousands years. They always lived in their own nation until the British put them together with the Sinhala kingdom during their rule. Northern and Eastern parts of Sri Lanka represent the traditional home land of Tamils. They have their own culture, traditions and language. Tamils had their own constitution, rulers and kings. Tamils who work in the tea estates of Sri Lanka are different from the Tamils who live in the North and East of the country. It is the up country Tamils that were brought by the British, not the ones living in the North and East.

 

When Sri Lanka became independent, the majority Sinhalese were made to rule over the Tamils. As a rule of democracy it is the Sinhalese that come to power in each election as they are always the majority. The political party that oppresses the Tamils become more and more popular among the Sinhalese. Power hungry Sinhala leaders have tortured the Tamils all these years. Now they are doing false propaganda with lies and deceptions to deceive the international community to justify the mass murder of Tamils.

 

 

LTTE is still forcefully recruiting under age children

 

During the cease fire period, the LTTE fully complied with the international laws by making sure that cadres are above 17 years old. In recent months, many Tamil families have been completely wiped out by this dirty war.

 

16 years old boy, who witnesses his whole family being killed in front of him by the bombs dropped by the Sri Lankan forces, will not wait till he is 17 to fight for the unborn Tamil babies in the wombs. Times are difficult for the Tamils that even 16 years olds are also now joining the LTTE and they are doing a very sensible thing.

 

The enemy is using dangerous chemical weapons against ordinary Tamils. LTTE has been so patient and still believing that the Nations would intervene and bring a political solution for the Tamils.

 

We have liberated the majority of civilians from LTTE and now we are prepared to receive help from the international community to look after the IDPs. We will still not allow journalists to go into the Safe Zone.

When the Asian tsunami struck the shores of Sri Lanka, many thousand Tamils died in the Northern and Eastern parts of Sri Lanka. Sri Lankan government took money from foreign donors and spent most of the aid in building houses and roads in the Sinhala areas. They built more than the required number of houses in some of the towns in the South. But they completely ignored the people in the Northern and Eastern parts of Sri Lanka. Thousands of tsunami victims from the Tamil community still live refugee camps.


Now the Sri Lankan government has created a man made disaster and starting to look for aid from foreign countries. If the aid is channelled through this murderous regime, they will again use the money to build bridges and roads in the Sinhala areas and buy mansions for corrupt politicians. Tamils in the barbed wired camps will again end up living there for years.

 

There are also fears that many of these young people will be taken away from the camps for questioning and they might end up in torture camps and mass graves. When the Sri Lankan military did a similar operation in the Northern part of Sri Lanka several years ago, thousands of Tamils were taken for questioning. Many of them were killed and their bodies were dumped in mass graves. The military commander who was responsible for these atrocities is now overseeing the barbed wired camps.

Donor countries should work hard to get the Tamils back to their own homes and farms instead of giving the money to the Sri Lankan authorities. Innocent Tamils will be used like the beggar children on the streets, for the corrupt Sinhala regimes to exploit

These Tamils who have been sent to the barbed wired camps are mostly fisherman, farmers and professionals who lived in their own homes and lands and had enough wealth even to educate their children in foreign countries.


Just like how Mugabe created an artificial famine in Zimbabwe, Sinhala Buddhists politicians backed by the religious extremists have orchestrated a man made disaster to destroy Tamils in Sri Lanka.

 

They will continue their atrocities with lies and deceptions unless the international community intervene and stop it.

 

Conclusion

 

It is time that we should stop listening to the Comical Alis of Sri Lanka and to start listening to the ordinary Tamils to find out what is really going on in Sri Lanka. We live in lands that give respect for the voice of the people and not to the voices coming from few arrogant leaders who are being responsible for the death of thousands in far away lands.

 

Civilised world has turned a blind eye towards the suffering Tamils in Sri Lanka. Tamil people have lost their lands and homes. They have lost all their livelihoods. Many have lost their loved ones. They are being killed and wounded in thousands by a murderous regime. They are raped, imprisoned and tortured. Thousands of Tamils are left to live as orphans, widows and mentally retarded in barbed wired concentration camps. Their voices are silenced. Who will hear the voice of the oppressed? Who will go for their rescue?

 

It is time that the Nations should get together and protect the Tamils from annihilation by invoking the R2P. It will be too late, if we keep on waiting until millions of skulls and bones appear on our wide screens. Rwanda and Kosovo are being repeated in front of our very own eyes therefore we should act now.

 

Tamils in Sri Lanka should be freed from State oppression and given the rights to live without the fear of torture, rape, murder and intimidation.

 

 

Let Tamils decide their own destiny!

The Real Culprits behind Sri Lankan War [May. 18th, 2009|09:10 pm]
[Tags|, , , , , , ]


 

 

Birds have now stopped singing  in a land called Vanni.  Sun, moon and the stars in the sky have hidden their faces. Angel of death flew over the skies of Vanni and took the lives of more than twenty five thousand innocent Tamil men, women and children in a single day. 

 

Thousands of wounded are still crying for help. They are bleeding to death on the streets. They have touched neither water nor food for days. Nobody has come to rescue them. Those who fight for the rights of the animals and those who preach about Buddha and Mahatma have no compassion for the dying Tamils. 

 

Chinese weapons,  Indian intelligence, Sinhala Armed personals and racist Sri Lankan leaders came together to perform one of the most cruel war that has cost the lives of many thousands innocents.

 

While thousands of  innocent children and women are facing painful and slow death, Sinhala Buddhist extremists are celebrating victory with flags and  fire crackers in the south of the country.

 

War that was started with hidden agendas of local and international forces, went on for months not just with the strength of the weapons but with well organised false propaganda done by the Sri Lankan officials. 

 

This war was orchestrated and staged with lies and deceptions from the beginning till the end.

 

 

Sri Lankan leaders are still vomiting out worms of lies

 

Rulers of Sri Lanka are continuing to vomit out worms of lies to justify their atrocities against innocent lives.  They started with “War on Terror” but changed the buzz word to “Humanitarian Operation” in order to deceive the international community. “War on Terror” was an accepted norm during the Bush era but lost its validity now. Therefore they had changed the name of the game to “Humanitarian operation”

 

Why do they lie?

 

Because they have many hidden agendas behind this dirty war. They want to hide the atrocities that are being committed against innocent civilians. They themselves know, what they are doing is wrong and not acceptable in a civilised world. 

 

Above everything they want to protect India who are orchestrating the war in Sri Lanka. Indian intelligent agents and military experts are working closely with the Sri Lankan forces in the war zone.

 

 

How do they  manage to lie?

 

They simply hide the truth. When the truth is hidden what comes out is lie. 

 

Foreign journalists and aid workers are barred from the war zone and IDP camps. Those who try to enter and report about the war, are kicked out of the country if they are critical of the government.

 

Local journalists are intimidated, tortured and sometime killed. Telling the truth is considered a crime in Sri Lanka.

 

Phone lines are tapped. Web sites are blocked. Anybody who talk against the government is considered as Terrorist or Terrorist supporter.

 

In the war front, dead bodies of the civilians are burned to ashes using powerful chemicals. This is to hide the number of innocent civilians that have perished in the war.

 

Sri Lankan government officials very often organise staged visits to the IDP camps and force the refugees to lie to the foreign diplomats.

 

 

What did they lie about?

 

They lied about the objective of the war, weapons used, number of civilian causalities and military operations.

 

Although they initially claimed that the objective of the war was to defeat the LTTE, they have in fact killed and wounded several thousands of innocent Tamil civilians with heavy weapons. They used chemical weapons and cluster bombs on innocents, but they continue to deny the usage of such weapons.

 

Sri Lankan forces have destroyed Schools, hospitals and farm lands and made the whole place into a graveyard for the Tamils. This is also regularly  denied by the Sri Lankan authorities.

 

This war has claimed more than fifty thousands lives just within the last few months but the Sri Lankan government is not going to open their mouth and tell this truth to the world. 

 

 

Why didn't the UN intervene?

 

United Nations, who is supposed to be a guardian for the oppressed people in the world  turned out to be a silent spectator of a man made disaster that has taken the lives of many thousands.

 

There is a conspiracy behind this whole war game. China was initially blocking every attempt that was made by UK and France to discuss the Sri Lankan issue in the Security Council.

 

Ban Ki-moon's chief of staff Vijay Nambiar was sent to Sri Lanka to organise a cease fire. He failed to secure a ceasefire and returned back after meeting the Sri Lankan and Indian officials.

 

Interestingly Vijay Nambiar couldn't achieve anything constructive in his visit and he had also refused to meet the reporters.

 

This `unbiased` negotiator, who appears to actually be on the payroll of the Sri Lankan government, though indirectly, something that is obviously known to the United Nations. Vijay Nambiar`s brother (Satish Nambiar) is a paid consultant for the Sri Lankan army, and has been since 2002. Is there any link between the UN and the Sri Lankan army`s paid consultant? 


UN has once again proved to the world that it is no longer a trust worthy international body that can protect the vulnerable. 


They have all achieved what they wanted 

 

What we are witnessing in Sri Lanka is neither “war on terror” nor  a  Humanitarian operation. This is  simply a racist war against the Tamils conducted with the help of India and China. You wouldn't shoot at the passengers and bomb the whole bus, if you had to rescue the hostages. 

 

Sinhala extremists are already celebrating and they have also started to intimidate Tamils in the South of the country.

 

India and China have started to work on their hidden agendas in Sri Lanka.

 

Tamils all over the world are mourning the death of their loved ones back home. 

 

What Next?

 

When the rocket scientists designed highly complex derivatives and greedy traders traded these new emperors cloths, many investment banks collapsed. Pension funds lost money. Bankers committed suicide.

 

The whole financial disaster was caused by greedy and selfish individuals who had short term hidden agendas.

 

We took action. Greedy bankers and traders were taken to courts. New rules and regulations are now in place to prevent this happening again.

 

In the same way, the masters of this war in Sri Lanka should be brought to justice.

 

Sinhala government with racist agendas , China and India with their strategic interests and UN with corrupt officers are the evil ingredients of this  dirty war that has cost the lives of many thousands innocent Tamils.

 

Leaders of Sri Lanka and some responsible officers in the UN, should be questioned in international courts in order  to find out if they were responsible for the deaths of innocent Tamils.

 

If we didn't, we would end up seeing more of such evil games repeated over and over again.

A Paradise turned into Kingdom of Vultures! [May. 11th, 2009|09:37 pm]

Sri Lanka: A Paradise turned into Kingdom of Vultures!


Land that was known for beautiful beaches and waterfalls has now been turned into a Kingdom of Vultures.

Dead bodies of the innocent Tamils are dragged away by stray dogs and wild beasts while the survivors hide inside the bunkers.

Let the dead bury the dead as the living will be dead if they try to bury the dead. Screams of the innocents can't be heard to the far away lands because the rulers of Sri Lanka are not even allowing the birds in the sky to carry the messages to the lands of the living.

Mothers cuddle their crying babies and hide in the bunkers all day long. Starving mothers don't have anything to give for their children. Frightened parents wipe their tears and pretend to be strong in order to comfort their children who are tormented by the demons of war.

Food and medicine are denied for the innocents and many of them are forced into starvation.



Fellowship of the Dead


Most of the wounded are let to die in the open fields. Those who are fortunate enough to make to the make shift hospitals have their limbs amputated without anaesthesia. Caesarean operations are carried out without pain relievers.

Chinese F7s and Russian MIG fighters fly over the skies of Vanni continuously and they regularly bomb hospitals, schools, churches and orphanages. Cluster bombs and phosphorous bombs are used against innocent Tamil civilians.

Children are dying in front of their parents and the parents are dying in front of their children. Many of the dead have nobody to mourn for them. More than eight thousand innocent Tamils have been killed just within the last three months.

Tamils are now left with nothing. All their homes and farm lands have been made into grave yards. Many families have lost their loved ones. Thousands of orphans and widows are longing for death than suffering from hunger and untreated wounds in the killing fields of Sri Lanka. They have no more comforters left to comfort the victims.


 

Destruction came upon the Tamils suddenly


 

People of Vanni in the Northern part of Sri Lanka once had their barns full of grains, children played in the parks and on beautiful golden beaches, fishermen went to the seas, farmers went to their farms and the mothers worked hard at homes. They had the money, resources more than enough even to send their children abroad for education. They were neither prisoners nor hostages.

All came to an end when the Buddhist Sinhala rulers of the country decided to destroy the lives of the minority Tamils in the disguise of “War on Terror”.

As part of the so called deceptive humanitarian and rescue operation, Sri Lankan forces surrounded an area that is almost two times bigger than Singapore, bombed and destroyed all the hospitals, schools, orphanages and homes in this prosperous land that was once flowing with milk and honey.



 Mother is trying to protect her child from exploding shells
 

They destroyed farms, fruit trees and the cattle belonging to the people who have lived there for years. They dropped cluster bombs and killed so many thousands of innocent people including children, women and old people.

 

They have forced people into starvation and made them to live in tents and bunkers for months. All this is according to them for just to catch or kill few hundreds LTTE fighters that were living among more than three hundred thousands of innocent Tamil civilians.

 

 

Tamils are persecuted all over Sri Lanka

 

Tamils who are forced to live in the open fields are bombed and killed in thousands. Those who leave the war zone are sent to barbed wired concentration camps and torture camps. The ones that live in the other parts of the country live in open prisons with the constant fear of abductions, extrajudicial killings, torture and rape.


 
Civilised world has so far failed to save these innocent Tamils


Their hands are tied and their voices are suppressed. Their loved ones living in the lands of freedom have been knocking on the doors of the kings and queens. Nobody has so far come to rescue the Tamils from these man made pits of hell.

 

 

Thousands of Tamils are living in the so called safe zone which is the most dangerous place on planet earth

 

Sri Lankan government had few months ago, declared a safe zone in a tiny strip of land and asked the Tamil civilians to move in. People were moving in and started to live in tents and bunkers. They are no longer protected from the rain, sun and the bombs falling on them.

 

Sri Lankan forces have now reached to the borders of this tiny over populated safe zone and started to use heavy weapons on innocent civilians. People are now getting killed in thousands. They are making the people to starve.



They have no more conforters
 

They let them to die with their wounds because people don't have access to proper medical care. Wounded civilians that are treated in the make shift hospitals are bombed again by a murderous regime that has no respect for human lives.

 

 

Barbed wired Concentration Camps for Tamils

 

While Tamils are being slaughtered in thousands in the war zone, the ones that come out of that area are sent to barbed wired concentration camps where they are kept as prisoners.

Aid agencies, foreign diplomats and Journalists are not allowed to see these notorious camps except to the one that is used only for propaganda purposes. Friends and relatives of the detainees can't visit these horror camps.



They lived in their own homes before


Children are separated from mothers and fathers and sent to different camps. People are treated like wild animals. Food packets are thrown at them from military vehicles. They are forced to drink unclean water collected from irrigation tanks.

Tamils are dying of diseases. Many have become mentally ill. Even the very severely ill people are not allowed to leave the camps and to live with their relatives.



Concentration camps for Tamils


There are fears that many of the young people who are taken away from these camps for questioning, might end up in torture camps and mass graves.



Mothers and fathers are forced inside the wired fence and their children are taken away. Not sure they will ever return


When the Sri Lankan military did a similar operation in the Northern part of Sri Lanka several years ago, thousands of Tamils were taken away for questioning. Many of them were killed and their bodies were dumped in mass graves. The military commander, who was responsible for those atrocities, is now overseeing the barbed wired camps.


 

Tamils in Torture camps

 

Young Tamil men and women are filtered out and regularly taken for questioning. They are tortured, raped and sometime killed in the torture chambers of Sri Lanka.

 

Most of them are kept naked in these torture chambers in order to prevent them from fleeing. One of the popular phrases used among the Sinhala forces is about feasting on the women of Vanni while turning the Indian Ocean red with the blood of the Tamil men.


 Mass graves for Tamils . They were tortured, killed and dumped (1998)


Torture camps of Sri Lanka are a well known fact that has been documented by many International rights organisations.

 

World very well knows how the Sri Lankan soldiers were asked to leave Haiti after they were blamed for rape, while doing peace keeping operations as part of the UN force.

 

Sri Lanka is under reported

 

Although the images of the dying Tamils are beamed through the television stations and internet all over the world, many people have only a little knowledge about this internal civil war that can one day even turn into a confrontation between nuclear armed India and China.

 

 
How is the world reacting to the current situation in Sri Lanka

Why are they killing the Tamils?

Are all the Sinhalese people racists?

Who are partnering with Sri Lanka to slaughter the innocent Tamils?

Why do they do what they do?

Who are so far the winners and losers in this dirty War

Why should we stop Rajapakse from continuing with the War on Terror?

Who can save the Tamils?

Why did the nations wait till it got so worse?

What is the UN doing about the whole crisis?

What would be the consequences, if the Nations didn't intervene?

What is the Solution for the problems in Sri Lanka?

 

 

How is the world reacting to this?

 

Cries of the dying children and women are reaching to the skies but they haven't yet touched the hearts of those who have the ability put a stop to this man made disaster within minutes.

We have the technology to reach out to the injured in North Pole in minutes. We have built rockets and space stations. But we have failed miserably to save the lives of innocent children and women in a land that is only twenty miles away from a country that claims itself as the largest democracy in the world



Only country in the world that regularly bombs and kills its minorities. Obviously failing from their responsibility to protect the vulnerable

As the scenes of Rwanda and Kosovo are being repeated on their TV screens, the leaders of the free nations have so far failed to bring peace to this troubled Island.


 

Why are they killing the Tamils in Sri Lanka?

 

Deception, foolishness, ignorance, arrogance, hatred, pride and greed. All of these evils come together and make people to commit crimes against humanity. Sinhala Buddhist extremists want to wipe out Tamils from this tiny island and they have so far been successful in killing many thousands of them.

 

Hitler slaughtered millions of Jewish people for a simple reason that they were different. Muslim extremists kill people all around the world that they treat the non Muslims as infidels.

 

Form of Buddhism that preaches violence and hatred against Tamils in Sri Lanka


In the same way, Sri Lankan governments that are backed by the Sinhala Buddhist extremists have been persecuting the Tamils in Sri Lanka for more than 60 years.

 

Muslim extremists use Quran as their source of hatred and the Sinhalese in Sri Lanka have a holy book called Mahavamsa, a book with controversial writings, full of hatred towards the Tamils. Sinhala youth are indoctrinated by lies and deceptions in schools.

 
President of Sri Lanka and the Defence secretary are busy with their Buddhist rituals while killing thousands of innocents in the North
 

This book is very specific to Sri Lanka and not used by Buddhists in other countries. Buddhism in Sri Lanka is not the peaceful one that is preached by Dalai Lama in Tibet. One of the former prime ministers of Sri Lanka was assassinated by an armed Buddhist monk.

 

In the fifties, sixties and seventies, the Sinhala extremists slaughtered thousands of Tamils with knives and swords. They burned them alive and destroyed their homes. Hundreds of thousands were made homeless and sent to the North of the country in ships.



 Tamils were killed and their properties were burned in the seventies long before LTTE
 

Now they kill Tamils with cluster bombs and phosphorous bombs. They bomb hospitals, schools and orphanages in Tamil areas.

 

Are all the Sinhalese people racists?

 

There are many peace loving Sinhala people living in Sri Lanka. Several academics, human rights activists, journalists, Christian leaders and professionals from the Sinhala community are supporting the Tamils in their struggle for freedom. Some Tamils even tend to intermarry with the Sinhalese.


Lasantha Wickrematunga, Well known Sinhala journalist who was killed for telling the truth
 

Although the extremists are only a minority among the Sinhalese, they have been successful in influencing politicians, military leaders and ordinary Sinhala people to incite racial hatred, violence and discrimination against Tamils.

 

Buddhist extremism has gone to the extreme levels that more than Hundred thousand innocent Tamils have been killed, six hundred thousands are made homeless and forced to live in camps, fifty thousands have become orphans and widows and many thousand Tamils are now disabled and mentally ill.

 

Majority Sinhalese support the War on Tamils and they elect politicians who come up with racist policies.

 

 

Who are partnering with Sri Lanka to slaughter the innocent Tamils?

 

China and Pakistan are giving the weapons and ammunitions. Iran and Libya are providing with low interest loans for Sri Lanka to purchase arms. India is orchestrating the whole war in Sri Lanka by providing intelligence and military expertise.

 

 

Why do they do what they do?

 

 

All these countries are trying to satisfy the racist regimes in Sri Lanka in order to look after their strategic interests in the region.

 

 

China is fishing in troubled waters. Sinhala extremists who have been killing the Tamils all these years wanted to get smart weapons to kill the Tamils in thousands as opposed to knives and swords that can be used to kill the Tamils only in hundreds.



 Sri Lankan Defence secretary in China with top military officers
 

They went and asked India for weapons. India refused. They went to the West and the East. Nobody wanted to give offensive weapons to Sri Lanka. Two countries came forward. It was China and Pakistan. They obviously asked for something in return,

 

In recent times, China has been actively involved in building ports in the South East Asian countries including Sri Lanka. China is spending 1 billion dollars to construct a port in the south of Sri Lanka.

 

China is planning use this port as a refuelling and docking station for its navy, as it patrols the Indian Ocean and protects China’s supplies of Saudi oil. Ever since Sri Lanka agreed to the plan, in March 2007, China has given it all the aid, arms and diplomatic support it needs to defeat the Tamils, without worrying about the West.

 

China has so far given six F7 jet fighters free of charge, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.


 

Pakistan is also trying to spread its influence in the Indian Ocean and in order to build a launch pad in Sri Lanka.

Pakistan has transferred huge amounts of automatic rifles, heavy mortars, multi-barrel rocket launchers, artillery and tank shells to Sri Lanka in recent years.

Sri Lanka is also getting JY-11 3D air surveillance radars, armoured personnel carriers,

T-56 assault rifles, machine guns, anti-aircraft guns, rocket-propelled grenade launchers, missiles and bombs

Iran provides low-interest credit to Sri Lanka to help them to purchase military equipment from Pakistan and China and to train Sri Lankan Army and intelligence officers in Iran.



 Sri Lankan president in Iran: Partnership with like minded States
 

Iran is now very pleased with the anti western policies that are being adapted by the Sri Lankan government.

 

India never wanted to supply offensive weapons to Sri Lanka which is the very reason why the Sri Lankan government went after China, Pakistan and Iran in the first place. Having 65 millions Tamils in India, it will be difficult for India to give offensive weapons to kill the Tamils in Sri Lanka.

 

However, India faces a real threat from China and Pakistan in its own backyard. Sri Lanka has always maintained good relations with India.

 

Intelligent gathering, Indian Army in Sri Lanka (2004)


In order to look after its interests in the region and to deal with the threats from China, India had come up with the clever idea of providing with intelligence and military expertise to Sri Lanka.

 

Many Sri Lankan ministers have recently acknowledged that they wouldn't be winning the war without the help from India.

 

There are reliable reports that many Indian soldiers are fighting along with the Sri Lankans on the front lines in Vanni. Several intelligence and military experts from India are helping fifty thousands of Sri Lankan soldiers to cause so much damage in the Tamil Land.

 

Even the so called medical professionals sent by India to Vanni to treat the wounded Tamils are mostly intelligent officers who are more interested in gathering information from the Tamil civilians than treating their wounded.

 

This is not because India hates the Tamils and loves the Sinhalese but they are not ready to see Sri Lanka going into the hands of China and Pakistan. More than seven hundred Indian fishermen were killed by the Sri Lankan Navy within the last few years but India is willing to sacrifice even their own for a greater gain in the region.

 

 

Who are defending the Tamils?

 

LTTE took arms to defend the Tamils when every effort taken by the Tamils to fight for their rights through democratic means had failed to bring results.

 

Democracy never worked in Sri Lanka because the majority are the Sinhalese and they always support the regimes that oppress the Tamils.



 Conventional Tamil Army that defends Tamils from State Terrorism

Say for instance. If a country has eight thousand deadly Muslim extremists and two thousand westerners, Most of the westerners would be one day sent to the graves under a democratic government because the majority rule over the minority.

 

When the democratic governments in Sri Lanka were sending the Tamils to mass graves, Tamils had no option but to fight back.

 

According to the recent survey, majority of the Tamils support the LTTE and see them as their representatives even though LTTE had made few tactical mistakes in the past.

 

Tamils in Sri Lanka and India, Tamil Diaspora have now emerged as a powerful voice to support their suffering people in Sri Lanka.

 

 

Who are so far the winners and losers in this horrible War?

 

 

Sinhala Buddhist extremists in Sri Lanka are already celebrating with flags and fire crackers that they have achieved what they always wanted to

 

More than eight thousand Tamils have been killed, twenty thousands are wounded, three hundred thousands of Tamils have been made homeless just within three months and many thousands have become orphans and widows.

 

Almost all the Sri Lankan Tamils are now either homeless or they live in homes that are open prisons. This brings joy to the Sinhala extremists whose sole aim is to wipe out Tamils.

 

China has a lot to rejoice for, because they have been successful in securing their interests in the region. They are now busy building a port in the South of Sri Lanka that will be used as a refuelling and docking station for its navy, as it patrols the Indian Ocean and protects China’s supplies of Saudi oil

 

Pakistan has made enough money by selling cluster ammunitions and fire arms. They have also found a platform in the south of India to launch attacks against India.

 

India is a looser. India has made a historical blunder by assisting the Sri Lankan government to commit genocide against Tamils. Once the war is over, Sri Lankan government will go after China and Pakistan as they did before. India has now lost credibility both among the Tamils in Sri Lanka and India.

 

India would have been in a better position if they helped the Tamils to establish a prosperous secular state in order to free them from State oppression and to secure Indian strategic interests in the region. Even now, it is not too late for India to change its mind.

 

LTTE is now left to fight on their own without any help from other countries. But they are supported by a powerful Tamil Diaspora which means LTTE can't be defeated by bombing the whole Vanni although they are facing defeat in the Vanni.

 


 

Why should we stop Rajapakse from continuing with War on Terror?


 

When the twin towers fell and the innocents died, we declared war on Terror. We have done the right thing and we have been successful in preventing many disasters in our great cities.

Unfortunately, some of the countries that have been terrorising their minorities for a long time have started to use the loop holes in the "War on Terror" strategy. to declare war on the vulnerable.



War on innocent mothers and children. Failed state that bombs Innocent Tamils


Theory of War on Terror has failed miserably in countries like Sri Lanka because the oppressor has got the freedom to declare war on the innocents who are already going through hell in their hands.

Many freedom movements that have been fighting for the freedom of the oppressed are now wrongly branded as Terrorists groups.

Some of these countries like Sri Lanka have been spending so much money in doing false propaganda, to convince the world that these freedom movements had links with Al Qaeda.



State Terrorism: War on the Innocents


War on Terror is a great idea but the problems come when we wrongly recognise the Terrorists and the ones who are fighting the Terrorists.

When the “War on Terror” strategy is used by a Terror government that is already killing its own citizens, alarms should be raised to protect the vulnerable.

Did we permit Saddam Hussein who was a democratically elected president to wipe out all the Kurdish people? Hitler was democratically elected but he was still responsible for killing millions of Jews.

Rajapakse government, although it is democratically elected, shouldn't be allowed to use the “War on Terror” agenda to annihilate Tamils.

UK government would never bomb the whole city of Belfast and force people to live in the bunkers without food and medicine for months, if they had to catch few hundreds of IRA rebels. They wouldn't use chemical weapons against innocent women and children unless they had a hidden agenda of killing the people.

 

Sri Lanka is doing something what no other governments on this earth would do for their own citizens.



 This old Tamil woman has lost everything. Rulers of Sri Lanka treat such innocent Tamils as terrorists


The way how the war is being conducted in Sri Lanka is a clear proof that “War on Terror”, “Humanitarian operations”, and “Hostage rescue” are just the buzz words used by the Sri Lankan government to deceive the international community.


 

Who can save the Tamils?


 

India has now got itself into a mess by orchestrating the war in Sri Lanka although India has no enmity with the Tamils. They are doing it to protect their interests in the region as they are becoming very nervous about the threat from China and Pakistan in the Sri Lankan soil.

India hasn't so far come forward to rescue the innocents and they won't do it in the future because they are ones guiding the Sri Lankan military to fight the battles.

China is obviously fuelling the whole situation by freely giving offensive weapons to Sri Lanka in order to look after their strategic interests.

Tamils can only be saved by the Western countries.

US, UK, France and other EU member countries are already pressurising the Sri Lankan government to stop this war.

Arrogant leaders in Sri Lanka have so far no not listened to warnings from the free world


 

Why did the nations wait till it got so worse?

 

Sri Lankan government has been very successful in demonising the Tamil struggle with lies and deceptions. [Useful Reference Lies and Deceptions! Comical Alis of Sri Lanka! ]

They have been so far successful in convincing the world that the military operation was a legitimate “War on Terror” strategy that targets only the rebels and not the innocent Tamils. They have managed to ban reporters and journalists to the war zone in order to hide their war crimes.

Western media also has failed miserably in their duties to give importance to this trouble spot where thousands of innocents are perishing.


What is the UN doing about the whole crisis?


 

As usual, UN has so far failed to protect the innocents. They failed in Rwanda and they failed in many other countries where millions died of man made disasters. They always waited till it was too late to act.

UN had sent its representatives to Sri Lanka few times in the last few months, but they couldn't convince the Sri Lankan authorities to stop the war.

UK and the US are working really hard to bring the Sri Lankan issue before the Security Council. China, being a permanent member is not allowing the war in Sri Lanka to be discussed for an obvious reason that they are also partnering with Sri Lanka.

They don't want to be blamed for fuelling the war in this tiny island by freely supplying offensive weapons in order look after their own interests in the region.


 

What would be the consequences, if the Nations didn't intervene?


 

We would regret forever for repeating the same mistakes that we did in Rwanda.

Sri Lankan government would continue to use cluster bombs and phosphorus bombs to kill the remaining innocent civilians left in the safe zone. Many Tamils would continue to die of hunger, starvation and diseases. Young men and women in the concentration camps would end up in mass graves.

Sinhala Buddhists will be settled in the Tamil areas and the names of many Tamil towns and villages will be changed into Sinhala names.

Wounded LTTE with the support of the Tamil Diaspora will continue their struggle for freedom.

Nuclear armed China and India might one day confront each other as both of them are competing to dominate the same region.

This trouble spot in the Indian Ocean can one day would become a threat to the whole humanity if we didn't intervene to stop the madness that is going on, in this tiny island which has already been turned into a Kingdom of Vultures.


 

What is the Solution for the crisis in Sri Lanka?


 

World doesn't need any more proof to recognise the war crimes that are being committed against Tamils. Hospitals are bombed. People are deliberately forced into starvation and death. Voices of the victims are suppressed. Chemical weapons are used against innocent civilians. Many Tamils are locked up in barbed wired concentration camps.

UN should intervene to save the remaining Tamils in Sri Lanka without any delay.

It is time that the Nations should get together and protect the Tamils from annihilation by invoking the Responsibility to protect clause (R2P).

 

World doesn't need to sit and wait for millions of skulls and bones to appear on their wide screen TV sets.

 

Responsibility to Protect (or R2P) concept was born in 2001 and embraced at the UN World Summit in 2005. The heart of this new international norm is the belief that if sovereign governments fail to protect their own people from genocide, ethnic cleansing, or other major crimes against humanity, then the wider international community must take whatever action is appropriate.

 

The new norm emphasises assistance and prevention, not coercion, but it also accepts that it is sometimes right to fight. The bottom line is that the world cannot just stand by.

 

Tamils lived in their own Nation before. This hard working and highly literate community is once again capable of building a secular state like Singapore in the Indian Ocean.


 It is time for the West and India to support the Tamils to establish a State of their own.
