Int’l community should warn LTTE - TULF
COLOMBO: The Tamil United Liberation Front very strongly
condemns the LTTE for the ruthless manner in which they took the lives
of 7 innocent civilians and caused injuries to 37 others of whom how
many have lost their limbs and eyesights are not known.
This is not the first time they have done this. Everyone knows the
motive the LTTE has for doing this. They somehow or other want a
backlash, so that they can regain the creditability they are losing fast
among their like minded ruthless elements both locally and abroad.
I wish a team of British Parliamentarians and a few pro-LTTE Tamil
Nadu politicians must be brought down to see some of the LTTE’s
atrocious activities and to go back and tell the world that more than
50% of Tamils are living amongst the Sinhalese peacefully and that it is
the LTTE that is engaged in genocide and not the Sinhala people.
They should also see and understand that this is the worst type of
Human Rights violations one can think of from the LTTE, the TULF Leader
said in a statement.
He said: “It is surprising that there are people who still glorify
the LTTE for their heinous crimes of this nature too, both locally and
abroad because they are in safe haven happily with their families.
Donating a day’s pay for the LTTE’s activities is nothing for them.
They must put themselves in this position and feel for the death of the
innocent ones whose deaths they are partly responsible.
There are a few things that need immediate attention. First of all
the international community that is all out to help eradicate terrorism
should be made to understand that while we are trying to get their help
to destroy terrorism, we are also doing our best to eradicate the cause
for terrorist activities taking place in Sri Lanka today.
Incentives should be offered to these who help, by giving information
to trace these foolish agents of the LTTE.
The International Community should with one voice warn the LTTE to
stop this type of heinous crimes and accept a solutions recommended by
them and our Government too should come down to a reciprocal
I express my deepest sympathies for the families of the victims of
this cruel incident and at the same time plead with the Sinhalese to
keep calm, without giving vent to their anger and look after the
minorities who live amongst them with honour because they are with them
due to the LTTE’s atrocious activities.”
