CPI questions communist parties of Russia, China, Cuba, on Tamil issue

[TamilNet, Monday, 07 January 2013, 00:23 GMT]
What is the position of the Communist Party of Russian Federation (CRPF)? What is the position of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and what is the position of Cuba, asked Communist Party of India’s (CPI) National Secretary D. Raja, bringing the issue of international investigation on Sri Lanka at the round table of experts from different communist parties of the world held in Moscow last month. “You comrades have to reconsider your position and voice your concerns in favour of Tamil people in Sri Lanka,” Raja urged, expressing concern over the lack of understanding among the communist parties on the issue. In the contemporary history a massacre of people in such a scale happened nowhere. It was genocide of Tamils in Sri Lanka, Raja told the world communist parties.

Full text of the relevant part from the speech of D. Raja at Moscow, appeared in New Age, CPI’s Weekly, dated December 30 – January 5, pp 4-5, follows with protests of TamilNet against the use of the phrase “Sri Lankan Tamil.”

The imposed identity is resented by Eezham Tamils and their resentment has been democratically registered by their endorsement of the Vaddukkoaddai Resolution in 1977 and by its re-endorsement in the diaspora in 2009–2010.

The relevant part of Raja’s address:

Sri Lankan Tamils Issue

D. Raja
The communist parties must have better coordination and cooperation on issues such as solidarity. But there exists differences on some issues and lack of understanding. For instance the Sri Lankan Tamil issue is a matter of concern for the Communist Party of India (CPI). In the name of fighting terror the Sri Lankan government launched a full scale war on Tamils. In the contemporary history a massacre of people in such a scale happened nowhere. It was genocide of Tamils in Sri Lanka. UN took note of it and UNHRC at Geneva passed a resolution. There is a genuine demand for an international investigation into war crimes and human rights violations. What is the position of CRPF? What is the position of CPC and what is the position of Cuba? You comrades have to reconsider your position and voice your concerns in favour of Tamil people in Sri Lanka.
