Peoples of India should see real danger coming from Swamy polity

[TamilNet, Thursday, 21 August 2014, 15:33 GMT]
The genre of Subramanian Swamies, ostracized by mainstream Tamils and politically orphaned in Tamil Nadu, try to settle score with their own people by making their local bias and paranoia to influence all-India policy, unjustly affecting the immediately neighbouring nation of Eezham Tamils. This is the real danger for entire India in the long run. Peoples of India, especially the peoples of North India should realise the impending danger coming from this genre of individuals, who threaten India’s national interests by causing disintegration in the South and by marring India’s image in the eyes of world humanity, commented Tamil activists for alternative politics in the island.

Mr. Subramanian Swamy is the chairman of BJP’s Committee for Strategic Action.

Sri Lanka’s ‘victory’ in the genocidal war against Eezham Tamils is projected as India’s ‘security’ by Swamy, according to Colombo media reports on Thursday.

Speaking at a ‘Defence Seminar’ in Colombo on Wednesday, Swamy denied any genocide in the island. Shaming his Harvard education in his understanding of ethnicity, he said that there is not even an ethnic issue as the ‘DNA’ is same for Tamils and Sinhalese, but the issue is only language.

A striking feature of the recent talks of BJP leaders is that they now openly claim that it was New Delhi that decided the way the war ended. While it explains why New Delhi should be the foremost in opposing any international investigation, it also exposes the previous Congress regime and actually invites international investigation to focus on the role of India in the genocide and on-going genocide.

Whether the BJP leaders are also sending in indirect messages compelling the nation of Eezham Tamils in particular, and Tamils in general, to seek a balancing foreign policy option is another question.

Eezham Tamils were always at the receiving end in the competition between Washington and New Delhi over the island, because of the failure of Tamils in not proving their geopolitical importance.

A five-member Tamil National Alliance (TNA) team, led my Mr. R. Sampanthan, will be meeting New Delhi’s Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi on Saturday, news reports say.

With the kind of policy declarations coming from BJP delegations visiting the island, Tamil polity, whether in the island, in Tamil Nadu or in the diaspora, has to come out with a stern message to New Delhi that unless something is positively proved on the ground, its words and hopes cannot be trusted anymore.

Tamils all over the world may have to think of a new collective foreign policy and strategies of democratic struggle, counting the New Delhi Establishment out. New Delhi’s approach to the island, defying all norms of civilised humanity, has to be intensively challenged internally and internationally.
