Claims and scepticism sans evidence

[TamilNet, Monday, 25 May 2009, 00:53 GMT]
The head of the LTTE’s Department of International Relations on Sunday announced that the LTTE Leader Velupillai Pirapaharan attained martyrdom fighting the military oppression of the Sri Lankan state on 17 May. However, the LTTE’s Department for Diaspora Affairs (DDA) told TamilNet that it would not comment without explicit authorisation from the LTTE leadership. In the meantime, the Intelligence Department of the Tigers reiterated on Sunday that the LTTE leadership is safe and it will re-emerge when the right time comes.

Tamil Nadu leaders, Mr. Vaiko and Mr. Pazha Nedumaran have expressed scepticism Sunday on the reports of Mr. Pirapaharan's demise.

Meanwhile, the general opinion prevails is that Colombo has failed in conclusively establishing the evidence for Pirapaharan's demise. It has not taken any credible efforts to verify evidence either.

Failure in the responsibility of coming out with the truth also falls on the Indian Establishment. The Indian Intelligence has recorded all the details of LTTE leader's physiognomy when it has taken him into custody in mid-80's in India. It should have verified his death with evidence at least for its legal purposes. But observers think that India maybe having its own reasons for its silence.

Even 'omnipotent' powers of the information age have not come out with any authentic statement.

As TamilNet is being heavily pressed by its readership to know the truth, it has become a necessity to state that TamilNet doesn't take any responsibility for any of the stands taken, as these are beyond its independent verification.
