Is it the end or the dawn of new tomorrow??
As the dust settled in Srilanka we will hope for a good, properous and dignified life for the Tamils under the regime of Mahinda Rajapakshe. But I doubt it. With the developments happened over the previous 2 years, makes my suspicion more. Because if that president had that much concern over his citizens he w+on’t allow+ed them to loss their lives. Remember Red cross has said that its a severe human catastrophe. He didn’t seen them as his country’s citizens. For him all the Tamils w+ere looked like Velupillai Prabhakaran. So they went through all kind of tortures. You may have read about it or not. Reading about them itself is a painful thing. Then you could assume w+hat is the amount of torture is.
Coming to Velupillai Prabhakaran’s death news, many will be happy and few will be sad over this. As I don’t know much about him I am neither happy nor sad. But thing you must not forget is, in any country no people w+ill follow+ a man and respect his w+ords blindly just because he is from their community and raising their voice for them, irrespective of how powerful he is. Just take our country. BJP is depicting that they w+ere fighting for the Hindus and Muslim leaugue w+as pretending that they are the only saviours for the muslims in this country. But are w+e believing them?? The answer will be ‘no’. Because w+e know+ that our nation is not for some religious fanatics. Same applies to every nation. They w+ill value their nation more than their community. So something terribly has happened there for them that made them to oppose their ow+n government and support a single man and follow him.
The w+ay he has developed his army w+ill tell you how much capability he had and his inspirational leadership. He was able to build an army and able to fight against a nation’s army is an incredible thing. That too they had ruled some parts of Srilanka and not many tamils opposed them as they do against Srilankan government. I am not saying whatever he has done is good or he is a great man. But still he had that capabilities of leader that made him to represent the face of the eelam tamil people. For me the biggest mistake he has done was killing the other Tami leaders who fought for the tamil people just because they are against him. He must have convinced them and made them to join with him. And then killing of our former PM Rajiv Gandhi made his movement into a terrorist organisation from rebel movement. And the way he broken from the peace talks organised by the Norway during Ranil Wickramasinghe brought no good to him. From then on, he fought for the losing cause.
He will go into some history books as terrorist who fought for the separate nation and killed many people in the process and ended up with nothing and as an unpatriotic guy who fought against his own country. As a rebel who fought with determination for the cause of his people in some. But in my view he had all the determination and courage but took wrong decisions at the right moments that lead to his downfall. In the process he let down lakhs of people who believed in him. Still I don’t believe that he is dead. The photos and videos shown by them are not believeable. But thats what Srilankan army has said about him.
Now their President has promoised that they will consider everybody equally and there wil be no minority tags for the tamil people. If that happens means, that will make the souls which are lost in the process of getting a separate land for tamil people to rest in peace. Even though they didn’t achieved their dream, atleast they can be happy that their people were living in peace in their country.
One thing nobody has to forget is, in any day you can’t supress any section of people just because they are weaker or minority. Not everyone will shut their mouth and follow your order. Somebody will raise their voice against that, in the process will destroy the whole of the power which tries to suppress them.
