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 arrangement.

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.”
