Tamils should prepare for alternative international investigation if UN fails

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 02 September 2015, 06:06 GMT]
At least now realising the persistently deceptive agenda of Washington and New Delhi, what Tamils could do is acting on their own with innovation in internationalising the investigation and extracting justice, if the UN is going to fail, commented Tamil activists for alternative politics in the island. By righteously reiterating the resolution on genocide and international investigation in the wake of the latest US deceit, the NPC led by Justice Wigneswaran has provided a historic moral mandate for all those who care for the rights of humanity all over the world to alternatively internationalise the investigation, focussing on what the powers and the agent State in the island have committed and are committing, the activists said.

A coordinated alternative international investigation, credibly conducted, could have facets that can’t be covered even by the UN, the activists said, citing the following possibilities:

The Tamil Nadu State, which also has resolved twice for international investigation of genocide in the island, could now think of instituting its own Inquiry Commission, within the rights of the State.

It is internal and justifiable to the State to inquire about the plight it was put into, burdens it had faced and the socio-political implications it went through in the several decades, but such an investigation with credibility will definitely have national and international bearings of hitherto unseen dimensions.

The NPC could initiate its own investigation and recording on the impact of the genocide faced by the province over the several decades. Justice Wigneswaran surely knows how to conduct it in internationally credible ways.

The remaining members of all the Tamil militant organisations should come forward on their own to investigate, record and to bring out to the world, the roles played within the organisations by international forces in ultimately leading the struggle of Eezham Tamils to disintegration and genocide. It is now contextually out-dated to merely talk about internal issues and inter-group conflicts, but to investigate and record the ultimate factors that operated behind every stage of the struggle.

The diaspora should think of finding credible sources to investigate and record the roles played and being played by their respective countries. The PPT was a remarkable beginning. But much more could be done in internationalising the investigation. The NPC Chief Minister has rightly pointed out that a domestic mechanism in the island would not work when the affected people are spread across the world.

The international NGOs, who care for the world system and the UN, should rise above bloc affiliations to investigate and tell humanity where the UN fails and why.

The September session of the UNHRC would show not only the deception of Washington and New Delhi, but also would expose China, Russia and some countries in the bloc that were ostensibly implying the US agenda for their earlier support to the genocidal State in the island and to the Rajapaksa regime.

A well-coordinated and credible alternative international investigation in the above lines, coupled with a struggle of non-cooperation at home and in the diaspora, against agendas of blatant injustice, and against their perpetrators as well as agents, could only bring in edifications to the outlook.

There is no point in some select personnel in an entire military of genocidal construction getting penalised, or some politicians of only one regime of the congenitally genocidal State getting indicted in a ‘domestic mechanism’, when the fundamentals are rejected in the delivery of justice and the original agenda only is pursued by the ultimate culprits.

If the outlook of global imperialism had thought of proving an international paradigm of erasing national questions through genocide and had thought of institutionalising it through hoodwink manoeuvres by selectively opting for the case of Eezham Tamils, then the present circumstances of the same case are also an opportunity for the affected and for the alternative world of humanity to disprove the paradigm peacefully.

Tamils and all those who are concerned about international system should realise that failure at this juncture to show peaceful will in opposing deceptions in the case of genocidal Sri Lanka, would only lead to prolonged loss of peace in the region and further examples to follow elsewhere.
