NPC culture deviating from secularism of Vaddukkoaddai Resolution questioned

[TamilNet, Monday, 14 October 2013, 21:02 GMT]
The Vaddukkoaddai Resolution (VR) of 1976, mandated by Tamil speaking people of the North and East in the 1977 general elections, calling for the creation of a secular State of Tamil Eelam is well known. Whether the overwhelming mandate by the people of the North to the TNA in 2013, hijacked by the Sampanthan-Sumanthiran-Wigneswaran trio to interpret it as something that has superseded the VR, is also hijacked to supersede the secular outlook in the polity of the nation of Eezham Tamils, asked Tamil activists for alternative politics in Jaffna. They were cautioning on certain politico-cultural expressions surfacing with the Wigneswaran administration and said that Tamils have to rise above the culture of the genocidal State in Colombo than imitating it.

The comments of the Tamil activists for alternative politics have come in the wake of certain symbolic expressions and stage presentations brought out by the TNA and the NPC under the chief-minister-ship of Mr C.V. Wigneswaran.

The Colombo-centric State and its outside partners playing with Buddhism in their genocidal approach to imperialism cum agent-imperialism in the island, is well known.

Tamils should not ape the Sinhala-Buddhist State to prove their nationalism, because the Tamil identity, based on language, is something unparalleled in South Asia as it is the only language that served as medium to all the religions of past and present in the region.

It is not only the Sinhala-Buddhist State but also its outside partners and their visiting dignitaries, who try to engineer currents and counter currents by their chosen dealings and competitive deployment of religious symbols–all ultimately to manipulate and facilitate a course of crime against humanity in the pursuit of imperialism.

Tamils have to carefully watch the already unfolding scenario in South Asia and elsewhere in the world. If Tamils are not different, showing justice to their long civilisation, they cannot withstand the onslaught of the designs of the genocidal forces of imperialism that are operating against them.

It is with great understanding the Eezham Tamils had opted for secular Tamil Eelam in 1977. The Tamil militancy was neither practising nor showing symbols of any religion.

If any quarters, inside or outside, attempt insinuation into Tamil polity using any religious symbolism – even as a reaction to what the Sinhala-Buddhist State is doing in the country of Eezham Tamils – that has to be nipped in the bud by enlightened public vigilance and consensus. Otherwise, it will prove dangerous in the long run, said Tamil activists for alternative politics in Jaffna.
