Tamils - a Trans State Nation..

"To us all towns are one, all men our kin.
Life's good comes not from others' gift, nor ill
Man's pains and pains' relief are from within.
Thus have we seen in visions of the wise !."
Tamil Poem in Purananuru, circa 500 B.C

Justice for Oppressed People of Tamil Eelam:
Exhibition & Forum in Ipoh

24 October 2008

The Forum Discussion with Citizens of Ipoh was led by Dr T Ramasamy (Deputy CM Penang), Kulasegaran (MP Ipoh Barat), Sivanesan (Perak Exco - State Assembly), Mr Fan Yew Teng (Social Activist, Writer) and Mr Pasupathy (Social Activist, Lawyer). The subjects explored included the following -  

What radicalized the Eelam political struggle into an armed struggle? 

What would be the Alternate Government stance on the on-going humanitarian crisis in Tamil Eelam?  

Why is there a proscription on LTTE in Malaysia?

What is the legal mechanism that proscribed LTTE as a terrorist movement?    Can it be subjected to judicial review?

Is it against our law for Tamils to provide moral/material support for the justice for Tamil people struggle in Sri Lanka? 

An Exhibition - "Free Eelam" with Book Promotion "Malaysian Indian towards a new paradigm" were conducted in conjunction with Forum.

The Forum concluded with the speech by Mr. M.Kulasegaran DAP National Vice Chairman and MP Ipoh Barat M.P. on "Justice for Tamils" at Ipoh City hall on 24th Oct 2008.

"Stop the genocide State terrorist violence on Tamils in Sri Lanka. The premeditated brutal war against innocent Tamil civilians by the Sri Lankan State is genocide of unparallel proportion in recent history. The intention is to establish an exclusively Sinhala and Buddhist theocratic State through the violent means of ethnic cleansing.

It is all out war on the Tamils now and no day passes without some killings, bombings and murder while the world and India and Malaysia watch without interfering to stop the genocide. Their silence is a crime against the Tamil people.

Over 300,000 Tamils have been uprooted and made homeless in recent weeks by this senseless war inflicting on the innocent Tamil civilians.

Uprooted Tamils are living without roofs over their head, food and medicine. Starvation is being used as a weapon to force them to submit. Tamils face the inhuman and indiscriminate bombing missions of MIG27, MIG 29 and Kfir aircrafts. They attack the homes, schools, hospitals and temples killing innocent civilians, be it children, women and aged.

Tamils are linguistic nationality and denying them their basic human rights of the right to self-determination is the crime of the century.

When Pakistan committed genocide on lesser scale India intervened to redeem the Bengalese and help earn self-determination. Why not for the Tamils likewise? Are we lesser humans? Or are we insignificant in the geo-political interest of India as a regional power. India must wake up to these atrocities and stop the genocide without delay. Malaysia too must intervene to stop the genocide.

No country or people should remain silent in the face of such brutal crimes against innocent Tamil civilians.

We the Tamils of Malaysia therefore categorically demand the following:

Stop the Sri Lankan State from waging on its own citizens, the Tamils;

Refuse military and aid to the Sri Lanka State;

Withdraw all Indians military personnel who are assisting the Sinhalese State in waging war on the Tamils;

Recognition of the right of Tamils to self determination

Urge the Malaysian Government to bring all parties to the conflict to the negotiating table for a permanent peace. "
