Tamil doctor writes to Indian Premier - ‘TAMILS PRAISE THE ARMY’
*Tamils could live anywhere in Sri Lanka in dignity
*TNA claims of representing Tamils misleading
A reputed physician, Dr P. Sivapaalan in an open letter to Indian
Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh states that Tamils in post war Sri
Lanka ‘could live anywhere in the country without any fear unlike in the
past and enjoy equal rights in terms of Sri Lanka’s constitution.’
“As a Tamil who had seen the sufferings of Tamils for nearly 60
years, I swear that we have a better dignified life under the present
The Tamils who suffered due to the war are not blaming the Army, but
in fact appreciate and praise the Army for having rescued them from the
clutches of the LTTE and helped them in many ways,” he said. The full
text of the open letter is as follows:
Dear Prime Minister of India,Congratulations. It is great you didn’t
bow down to the threat of the DMK. They pretend to be unaware of the
peaceful situation in Sri Lanka.
There is no genocide. Tamils could live anywhere in Sri Lanka without
any fear unlike in thepast before the end of the war in May 2009.
We Tamils have equal rights in Sri Lanka according to the
constitution of the country.
There are some administrative shortcomings like Tamils getting
letters in the Sinhala language from the government offices due to the
irresponsibility of officials and entries that had to made in Sinhala in
most of the Police stations causing grievance to Tamils.
I am sure the present good government will solve it soon. As a Tamil
who had seen the sufferings of Tamils in my life for nearly 60 years, I
can swear that we have better dignified life under the present
Unfortunately the Tamils having lost confidence in the politicians do
The claim by the TNA, that polled less than 11 percent of the
registered votes at the last general election, that it was the
representative of the Tamils is misleading the international community
and hoodwinking their own community. They have become traitors to their
country, Sri Lanka.
The people who suffered due to the war are not blaming the Army. In
fact, they appreciate and praise the Army for having rescued them from
the clutches of the LTTE and helped them in many ways.
Only the ardent supporters of the LTTE in Sri Lanka and in foreign
countries who had a good life at the expense of the suffering people
find fault with the Army and the Sri Lankan government.
We have seen live telecasts during the war in Vanni. The way the Army
was fighting in the tense situation wouldn’t have made them ‘do dirty
We saw them carrying elderly and injured people and saw the sympathy
shown towards the civilian.
Channnel 4 horror film was the work of anti-Sri Lankans.
IF THE TNA AND TAMIL MIGRANTS OF the TRANSITIONAL THAMIL EELAM
GOVERNMENT IN THE WEST, PRESS FOR AN INTERNATIONAL INQUIRY FOR WAR
CRIMES for alleged atrocities during the last phase of the war, WHY DID
THEY WANT THE TAMILS TO VOTE FOR the COMMANDER OF THE ARMY THAT FOUGHT
THE WAR, SARATH FONSEKA ,AT THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.
SARATH HAD SAID THAT SRI LANKA IS A SINHALA BUDDHIST COUNTRY, TAMILS
ARE MINORITIES, THEY CAN LIVE HERE BUT CAN’T ASK ANY THING.
HE WANTED 100,000 NEW RECRUITS TO the ARMY TO COLonize THE NORTH AND
EAST LANKA TO PREVENT the likes of PRABAHARAN emerging AGAIN.
So, it exposes the TNA and Thamil Eelam transitional government
migrants. Please stand for Justice.
Remember Late PM of India who had to sacrifice his life. Be on alert
of the people who support those who did the brutal act. I am telling
this in the name of God.
Dr P Sivapalan
