Sri Lanka - The real situation
« on: June 11, 2009, 11:00:16 PM »

This war did not start 30 years ago, but in 1956 with the passing of the Sinhala Only Bill, which was against the interests of Tamils and which created the Sinhala-Tamil divide. Successive governments made attempts to “sort things” out, but the Sinhala extremists would not allow them to change the situation. All governments with a view to retaining power maintained the “status quo.”

When a Tamil person goes to the police station to lodge a complaint, it is recorded in Sinhala and he has to sign it even though he may not know the language.

I am not a politician, and don’t hold a brief for any party. All Sinhala parties are responsible for this situation; it is they who drove the Tamil youth into the arms of militants. Prabhakaran was a product of this discrimination.

The war may have ended, Prabhakaran may be dead, but I do not see peace in sight, as the president still has the same extremist elements in his government. Saddam was killed but that did not bring peace to Iraq.

Still we are celebrating victory. This is what we Sri Lankans are very good at. Recently a ship with relief materials was sent back. When there is urgent need for humanitarian aid, how does the government justify this action? If the government continues to act like this, can we hope for peace
