NZ Tamils raise question on applying SA model to Eezham Tamils

[TamilNet, Monday, 25 February 2013, 00:03 GMT]
“We are constrained to seek a clarification from those few who are waxing eloquently on the need to study and gain from the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of South Africa vis-à-vis the LLRC recommendations of Sri Lanka,” said a press release coming from the Tamil Action Front (TAF) of New Zealand on Sunday, raising the question, “Will those protagonists of the South African experience please explain to the Tamil diaspora at least what they mean – what is it that is so significant for the Tamils to emulate?” The press release signed by the TAF coordinator Mr. A Theva Rajan, brought out the contextual difference between South Africa and the island of Sri Lanka.

The press release hinted at New Delhi’s hands behind the out of context conflation of South African model with the island of Sri Lanka, where the Rajapaksa regime is still engaged in genocide, and said that K M Panikkar’s dream about India and the Indian Ocean has been shattered by M K Narayan, Shiva Shankar Menon, and Nirupama Menon.

The TAF has earlier accused the Obama administration for doing nothing to check genocide in the island, in its letter addressed to the US President Mr Barack Obama on last Wednesday, and asked the question “ are our beliefs that Russia is a champion of the downtrodden and oppressed a false dream,” in a letter addressed to Mr Vladimir Putin on last Thursday.

The TAF statements were impelled by the US position of bringing out a resolution of lacuna in Geneva that doesn’t recognise the territoriality of the nation of Eezham Tamils in the island and the reported stand of Putin that Russia have vowed to see that the motion against Sri Lanka scheduled to be taken up at the March sessions of the UNHRC is not carried through.

The current statement of the TAF targeted New Delhi for being an “amused onlooker” even when the 13th Amendment has been reduced to zero by the Divineguma Law under genocidal Colombo, and when a Chief Justice of the State had to face impeachment for rejecting that law as unconstitutional.

The stand taken by the Tamil Action Front of New Zealand in targeting the Establishments that globally orchestrate in silencing the grassroot voices of Eezham Tamils is refreshing, when sections of politicians, activists and academics are hijacked by the orchestration, commented political observers among Eezham Tamils.
