India & the Tamil Eelam Struggle for Freedom

from Indira to Rajiv to Manmohan - an amoral phenomenon

We won�t stop military cooperation with Lanka says Indian External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee

�We have a very comprehensive relationship with Sri Lanka. In our anxiety to protect the civilians, we should not forget the strategic importance of this island to India's interests,... especially in view of attempts by countries like Pakistan and China to gain a strategic foothold in the island nation...Colombo had been told that India would 'look after your security requirements, provided you do not look around'. 'We cannot have a playground of international players in our backyard.' together with Comment by tamilnation.org : "It was after all Indian Foreign Secretary and National Security Adviser Dixit who described India's foreign policy in relation to the conflict in the island as amoral....And so today, Mr.Pranab Mukherjee declares with disarming franknessthat Sri Lanka has been told that New Delhi will extend military cooperation and also continue to train Sri Lanka forces provided that Sri Lanka does not 'look around' to Pakistan and China.... Many will see the current posturing (and ultimatums) by Jayalalitha and Karunanidhi in Tamil Nadu as no more than a drama on a platform provided by New Delhi so that New Delhi may coerce President Rajapakse (and his JVP allies) to move away from the China-Iran-Pakistan axis..." more

Change Course in Sri Lanka or Face Misfortune - M.S.S.Pandian "Tamil Nadu had a history of demanding secession from the Indian Union. Yet, over time, it has chosen to integrate itself fully with the national mainstream. If New Delhi does not change course in its Sri Lankan policy, it may plant the seeds towards a reversal of such history. That will be India's misfortune". more

Tamil Nadu & Tamil Eelam Struggle for Freedom

Thirumavalavan courts arrest in Tamil Nadu with thousands of cadres - and calls on India to stop proxy war against Tamil Eelam "In a state-wide railway blockade of a scale that has not been witnessed in recent years in Tamil Nadu, Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) President Thol. Thirumavalavan courted arrest Thursday 23 October morning with thousands of his cadres urging the Indian Government to stop the genocidal war against the Tamils within the next twenty-four hours. He said that the ongoing war in the island was "clearly a proxy war being waged by the Indian Government through the Sinhalese forces" and he urged upon New Delhi to put an end to it at the earliest." more

International Frame of the Tamil Eelam Freedom Struggle: India

Presence of ex Deputy Director of RAW, Chandran, disturbs Sri Lanka, says Sinhala owned Sri Lanka Island together with Comment by tamilnation.org "The words from Thirukural come to mind: 'Whatever may be said, whosoever may say it - to determine the truth of it, is wisdom'. And half truths are always more difficult to rebut than outright lies. In truth, the Sinhala owned Sri Lanka Island may be concerned not so much with Chandran's alleged current (and unproven) links to the LTTE but with the role that Chandran may be currently playing as an instrument of India's foreign policy - a foreign policy directed to wean and if necessary coerce President Rajapakse away from the China-Iran-Pakistan axis. And what better way to atttack the message than to attack the messenger as a 'double agent'. Incidentally, Chandran was one of two Deputy Directors of RAW who were assigned to engage with the delegations to the Thimpu Talks in Bhutan in 1985 and he has always displayed a steadfast commitment to further New Delhi's foreign policy objectives in the Indian Ocean region." more

In 1965, when Tamil Nadu faced the possibility of military action from a powerful New Delhi, C.N.Annadurai opted to abandon his demand for full autonomy for states under a lose confederation with one currency but multiple ethnic, cultural and national identities Today, Tamil Nadu appears headed for revolutionary political changes in a culmination of a combination of events: For one, the two main Dravidian political outfits � Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), headed by three-time chief minister M Karunanidhi and All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK), headed by former two-term CM Jayalalitha � are both reeling under overwhelming outrage among the Tamil population...The ground reality in Tamil Nadu is that almost every Tamil � belonging to whatever religion or strata � has a primary affinity to other Tamil-speaking people of whatever domicile or religion. .. Dravidian leaders, in their zeal to get on the right side of Delhi bosses, are seen to be conniving with New Delhi�s policy of aiding Sri Lankan government in exterminating Tamils...Developments in October will decide if New Delhi will be adding to the Kashmir imbroglio another hopeless embroilment in the South." more

There is no mistake that she has been following the footsteps of her forbears, who valiantly sided with the administrative machinery of British colonialism against Mahatma Gandhi�s liberation movement for free India. The malodorous mischief mixed in Malini Parthasarathy�s commentary deserve some criticism..." together with note by tamilnation.org "Many will regard Ms. Malini Parthasarathy's 'bold faced lie' that 'successive Indian governments since 1991' have upheld a 'sound policy decision' 'to stay out of Sri Lanka�s internal affairs' as simply a continuing reflection of the arrogance and stupidity of the House of Hindu - an arrogance and stupidity fuelled by its deep seated opposition to the struggle of the people of Tamil Eelam for freedom from alien Sinhala rule.." more

India & the Struggle for Tamil Eelam: Tamil Nation & the Unity of India - Nadesan Satyendra, February 2001 "...The break up of India, if it comes will not come from the efforts of tamilnation.org. It will come despite our efforts. It will come from a failure of political leaders in India to openly recognise that India is a multi national state - and recognise the enduring wisdom of the words of Pramatha Chaudhuri... The unity of India will not come simply by English speaking 'Indians' speaking to each other in English... (Again), the strength and unity of India lies not in the nuclear bomb, but in its peoples. Nuclear capability will not guarantee unity. The nuclear bomb did not prevent the disintegration of the Soviet Union and the emergence of the non-nuclear states of Latvia, Estonia and Georgia. There is a need to understand that a people's aspiration for equality and freedom is an energy which is in many ways more potent than that contained in a nuclear bomb... Those concerned to secure the unity of India will need to adopt a more 'principle centred' approach towards struggles for self determination in the Indian region.. ." more

In spite of the persistence of a linguistic identity over two millennia, and a self-conscious Tamil nationalist political movement of the 20th century which argued against caste differences among Tamils, for many Tamils of today, caste is a significant, if not the primary, identity still. One of the results of this caste identity is that many Tamils who are members of the Scheduled Castes or Dalits feel alienated from the interests of the Tamil Nationalist movement." more

"War brings with it a particular social reality. Death, destruction and fear may prevail but so too does great courage and determined resistance. In war situations it is doubtful that anyone escapes without some effect on their perceptions of life. For some people, the particular social reality generated in wartime conditions should be captured as a documentary record of the particularity of those times. These records form part of the cultural heritage of humanity, for they seek to tell the world of a particular human condition " Voice of the Tigers, the Official Bulletin of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, February 1990


".. today, the US and India may find common cause in 'weakening' the Tamil Eelam struggle for freedom (and the LTTE) - but weaken it in such a way that thereafter each of them may successfully jockey (against each other) for position and influence in the Indian Ocean region. The 'weakening' in this context means the isolation and annihilation of Velupillai Pirabakaran and securing an LTTE under a 'reformed' leadership. B Raman, Additional Secretary (retired), Cabinet Secretariat, Government of India, New Delhi, and, presently, Director, Institute for Topical Studies, Chennai, and distinguished fellow and convener, Observer Research Foundation, Chennai Chapter spelt out New Delhi's own 'legitimate' aspiration in 2005 -

" I have been repeatedly writing that the Sri Lankan Tamils need an LTTE minus Prabakaran and that if the LTTE throws him out and gives up terrorism, India and Sri Lanka should be prepared to do business with it. Without the protective role of the LTTE, the Tamils would be at the mercy of the Sinhalese chauvinists. Statesmanship demands that the Sri Lankan leaders should work for such a denouement through special gestures to the Tamils and the other leaders of the LTTE." South Asia Analysis Group, New Delhi, Paper No. 1217, January 10, 2005

Raman's concern to protect the Tamil people from Sinhala chauvinism would have been heart warming but for the grim reality of the New Delhi sponsored comic opera of the 1988 Provincial Councils which showed the extent of New Delhi's willingness to appease Sinhala chauvinism and sacrifice Tamil interests in the altar of its own strategic interests...

The political reality is that, on the one hand, the US is mindful that it was after all President Jayawardene's 'growing togetherness' with the US which led to New Delhi's support of the Tamil militant movement in the early 1980s. At that time the US kept its oars in Tamil waters with efforts such as hoisting the Eelam flag in the State of Massachusetts. Today, the same US continues to speak of the 'legitimate aspirations' of the Tamil people. On the other hand, New Delhi has no desire to lose its ability to play the 'Tamil card' to keep Sri Lanka in line in the years to come - even after the successful annihilation of Velupillai Pirabakaran and the weakening of the LTTE. And so New Delhi too proclaims ad nauseam that they are concerned to secure the 'legitimate aspirations' of the Tamil people. Additionally it builds its own network amongst dissident Tamils in Sri Lanka, in Tamil Nadu and abroad to propagate its interests. It is within the interstices of this international frame that the struggle of the people of Tamil Eelam to be free from alien Sinhala rule continues under conditions of excruciating agony and suffering . And it is this same international frame which Sinhala Sri Lanka seeks to use to continue its genocidal onslaught on the Tamil people...Given all this (and more) there is a clear need to expose to the scrutiny of the Tamil people (yes, the Tamil people and not some other people) the stated claim of the international community (including New Delhi and its agents in Tamil Nadu) that they seek the 'best solution in human rights terms' and explore the unstated interests which the stated claim is directed to cover up - and secure..."
