This is a quick and small response to the video posted in facebook.
Due to the fact that the video is nothing more than LTTE propaganda I wanted to give a reply eventhough I’m busy up to my neck in work with the releases coming up. My aim is to criticize the inaccuracies of the content of the video plus the careful neglegence of the essential facts for what is seen in the video. No hatred or disrespect is intended to any ethnic group by this post. If you were hurt or feel unjusticely criticised, feel free to respond, and if i see i’m wrong i will accept it.
False information. 300 dead 1000s injured. This was an email apparently sent out to many authorities by Dr. Varatharaja, the Regional Director of Health Services (RDGS) Mullaitivu. He denied ever sending such mail from Mulaitivu, mentioning that he neither had the facility of email or fax.
NGOs “But the government of Sri Lanka has expelled them all”
All civilians and humanatarian aid workers asked to leave areas way b4 the war in the north started, word was spread and even the leaflets were thrown by air. NGO’s left why didn’t the ppl?? They knew the war was coming. They should have left with the NGO to the safe areas. If the LTTE contained them it is nobody’s fault except the ltte’s. The video does not mention this fact.
medine and food sent were taken by the ltte for their wounded.
everything they have is from the sri lankan ppl. The Hospitals built, the food sent was from the hard working ppl from sri lanka, but grinded by the guns used by the ltte. Do you wanna know what happened to the money given to the ltte?
- air crafts
- air strips (6 of them :O)
- weapons factories
- underwater vehicle factories
- air conditioned bunkers
- have some others but they too common nw.
“Isn’t it obvious that this is genocide?”
ltte walking in street giving flowers to every one aren’t they honey?
“trying to starve tamils to death?”
only tamils who are starving are in those ltte controled area. In other areas in the country, there is no report that tamils are starving. if ltte wants to own the tamil ppl and land they should feed them or if not let them leave to locations where “tamil ppl dont starve”
“right to <all those stuff said>, have being violated”.
wonder who has been killing leaders in the country (both sinhala and tamil), or forgot to add, wonder who had killed rajive gandhi.
some of the mentioned politicians were killed after the so called hero of tamils (prabakan who has run to save his own skin by nw) was made to piss of by their statements.
“white van mania”
There is truth to this. some of these claims are false. in one such claim was found to be false when the so called abducted person came out as a suicide bomber and killed a bus full of policeman. Anyway I can say one thing with the start of these abduction claims the number of bus bombs, train bombs, shop bombs that killed many civilian lives (including sinhala tamil muslim) whether old or young decreased significantly. I wonder why.
“media censorship is at its extream”
i dont know in the world whether there is any other country goverment who gets much beaten by the media as sri lanka. I agree the government is controlling the news related to the security of the ppl in the country, which is necessary. But I see reports abt hardships faced by tamils on north (if u missed it watch the video again) and the reporter still writes the same articles next week also. I also see some ppl who are no where near the country download or listens to some crackpots words and write or post videos on the net saying there is genocide in sri lanka. And make note they only say tamil genocide, they forget to mention all the sinhala and muslim ppl who were killed, murdered, slaughtered, cut in to pieces etc. There are even rally’s against the goverment which has police protection from the goverment itself (if u missed it watch the video again). Lasantha’s murder is still yet to be solved. There are alot of fingures pointing. Like most of the killings they may be just political propaganda.
“All this is done by the democraticly elected government”
So i take it that the ltte is democraticly elected? Children are democraticaly used as soldiers? taking civilian with u to the war zone was done using democratic ways? What abt the democratic bunkers created by the ltte from the supplies sent to the wanni ppl? What abt the democratic way of chasing sinhala and muslim ppl in the east by the ltte? I think there is some misunderstanding with what democratic means.
start of all this problems. group of ppl wanted power, and converted a political conflict in to a ethnic war to achieve their goal. Brainwashed ppl in to thinking having a separate country is way cooler. brainwashed some other to bcome suicide bombers. What are they asking? for more than 1/3 of the country which consists most of the natural resources of the country for tamils who are less than 20% of the population in sri lanka (sinhalese-74%, muslims-7%). Rather than 1/3 of the country we offer to share the 100% of the country. But no they ask for a separate land. For what?? protect their identity??? Their identity was born from the whole country with the sinhala, muslim ppl in it since BC 1000 years ago. If they get a land of their own they will loose the identity rather than protect it. protect their identity – What a lame reason. Sinhala ppl has only one country that is sri lanka and we are offering to share. Tamils have india to go back to if sri lanka sinks to ocean floor someday. So give us a break man. Who r u trying to fool. tamil eelam is a concept brought in by the ltte with their own set of rules. the moment u mention the tamil eelam everyone knows that u are coughing for ltte. every one knows that the ltte is nothing short of a terorist organization which is in the verge of destruction.
The ppl who did this video. Nice cloths guys. You guys seems to where things in style. Very good ascent too, being in canada since when? Wow u got access to internet and you know technology, cool. Is the air condition too cool for you, better reduce it then. Nice makup honey, that highly polished bed looks imported. I’m glad to see the money you guys have collected put in to good use. Oh btw look at the tamils in northern sl, they dont have anything (just saying incase if u haven’t noticed their existance).
Wake up. ask the ltte to come to political stream. ask them to lay down their weapons. U dont think it is not a solution? want an example? look at karuna. Can you hear anything abt genocide in east now? From the chief minister to the cleark many are tamils governing. Look at the difference. Same result which ltte wants but without violence or so called “genocide”. Wake up. Stop posting such exgerated and misleading videos with hateful commentary to nick funds from ppl who has hearts. You should know they also have brains and sooner or later they will put 1 and 1 together. Atleast use yo organization to help tamils, not the ltte.
Anyone reading this should not take what I’ve written as it is. Search and look for facts, let the Logic guide you. Make use this post only as a starting point. Not a guide.
Sorry that i cannot reply more clearly, have work to do. I hav another post in my blog devoted to the wonderful nature of LTTE. anyone interested can go ahead and read it.
PS: and btw if u r wondering, I’m not paid by anyone to put this post. These are my own thoughts on the matter.
