The Tiger is finally dead.
After being on the run for the last couple of months, the head of the banned terrorist outfit, Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), Velupillai Prabhakaran has finally been eliminated.
There has been a lot of controversy in India on the Sri Lankan offensive against the Tigers, Tamil rights and the possible political fallout in India.
There is no doubt that Tamils do need to be treated as equals in the Sri Lankan society alongwith the majority Sinhala majority.
All that intellectual discussion is indeed good, but from a more practical aspect, India needs to learn a very important lesson from this Sri Lankan episode.
The Sri Lankan Army has indeed done a great job of fishing militants out of the hideouts. People say this exercise has been ruthless, but so have been the terrorists. The single-minded agenda of General Sarath Fonseka of the Sri Lankan Army has actually paid off. Full marks to the president, Mahinda Rajapaksa, for his unflinching support to the army for this mission. he kept the human rights activists and NGOs out of the war-zone and ignored all international criticism of this war.
Terror deserves no mercy, whatever be the cause. Sri Lanka has done it exactly that way. We, India, would do well even if we understand a little bit of this.
The new government in Delhi has a majority. It can take a tough stand on terror. We should take strong action now in Kashmir, the North East and the Naxal areas in Eastern India. Let's forget the people who would cry foul over minority rights, human rights and other shitty root-cause theories. All it takes is political will to have a muscular security policy, to send a message to the world that India cannot be messed around with..
Let's do it now, or we'll lose this opportunity.
It seems you dont know the history of Srilankan (SL) Conflict.
1. non tamil especially Hindi people get a sadistic happiness when tamils face sufferings. Reason tamils refused to accept Hindi in their state.
2. Tamils are natives of SL. The Singalese are immigrants from Bengal, orissa. The conflict between the 2 community is based on religion. The Lankan Buddhist hate hinduism. If tamil Hindu had converted to Buddhism they wont face any issues. But the remained loyal to hinduism. Just like hindus of kashmir, hindus of nagaland and mizoram , tamils were persecuted.
3. some time ago in Mumbai North Indians were attacked by Raj Takrey men. The whole north india made huge cry. In some place North indians retaliated. In Lanka in late 70 tamils were attacked. Some of the examples of the attacks. A tamil girl was raped, her breast were cut and hung in bamboo poles with a board "Tamil flesh avaialble" Another tamil girl was raped and a lankan govt seal was put in her provate parts saying "She is lankan property". SL Army used to tie men to pillars and rape their sister in front of them. When north inidians can get angry for attacks by Raj thakcrey men, I dont see any worng in tamil anger. Then IPKF went and raped 5000 girls. SL tamils loved india so much but IPKF gave them suffering. Can you call subash Chandra bose a terrorist.
