UNHRC resolution has failed to exert pressure on Colombo: FirstPost

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 06 November 2012, 17:33 GMT]
“If anybody thought Sri Lanka would mend its ways after the United Nations Human Rights Council resolution, they are mistaken,” writes G Pramod Kumar, a senior editor of Indian news portal FirstPost.com on Monday. In a story titled ‘Impeachment of Sri Lankan chief justice is India’s foreign policy failure’, Mr Pramod Kumar notes that “while the international community continues to put pressure on the country to improve its human rights standards and fix accountability for its alleged war crimes, it has become more defiant.”

“With the decision to impeach chief justice Shirani, it has once again cocked a snook at the international community, and more importantly its own citizens,” the editor of FirstPost observes adding that Sri Lankan government’s impeachment decision is a foreign policy failure for India.

Whenever political parties and civil society groups from Tamil Nadu asked for India's intervention for an equal and dignified life to the Tamils in the island, New Delhi had always brandished the 13th amendment.

“But now, with the proposed bill to take back powers of the provinces and the impeachment motion against the chief justice, it’s clear that Sri Lanka was bluffing with India,” the writer observes, concluding his article by saying: “Obviously, the Rajapaksas have made Sri Lanka a better best practice, than India, on how to establish an autocratic dynasty in a democracy.”

Supplementing the views of the Senior Editor of FirstPost, a young generation Eezham Tamil politician in the island said, while New Delhi Establishment has been showcasing the 13th Amendment argument to Eezham Tamils, the TNA hierarchy in the island and certain sections of Tamils in the diaspora were being systematically waylaid by the Washington Establishment that tabled the resolution, backing Colombo's LLRC, which is a blueprint of structural genocide against the Tamil Nation.
