“Send Sri Lanka Tamils to Australia”: Karunanidhi comes out with a gem!
Posted on July 12th, 2013

Asada M Erpini

Muthuvel Karunanidhi, the former Chief Minister of Tami Nadu, should be applauded by all peace-loving Sri Lankans. There is clear evidence that some of his grey matter cells are still functioning, although the man is almost 90 years old.

According to a report in Hindu dated 12 July, Karunanidhi has suggested that the government (of India) could facilitate migration of Sri Lankan Tamil refugees to Australia. Going by this suggestion, the Sri Lanka government should muster all its strength and collaborate with India “”…” Sri Lanka keeps on getting lambasted by every Tom, Dick and Harry for not cooperating with India to ensure the welfare of the Tamils in Sri Lanka – to see that Karunanidhi’s idea comes to fruition. The limited resources that the Navy and the Coastguards of Sri Lanka possess need not be spent on preventing Tamils who do not want to be in Sri Lanka from leaving. Instead, the time and energies of the security forces will become available to preventing the illegal and the undesirables coming into the island nation.

Then again, Karunanidhi being Karunanidhi, the poor man obviously cannot keep away from the theme that appeals to Indian politicians, and helps many of them to steal the limelight and hoodwink the illiterate and uninformed Tamil Nadu voters. He laments Sri Lanka’s poor track record of “reneging on earlier commitments” and adds, “it remains to be seen whether the country will fulfil its promises made to National Security Adviser (of India)!”.

Sri Lanka is under no obligation whatsoever to promise anything to India, represented by its foreign ministry or the security apparatus high ups. In the same tone, dumping in the garbage any such promises that had been made, for whatever reason, too, is Sri Lanka’s pristine prerogative, as the island nation is not a vassal state of India or one of the states or union territories that comprises the behemoth that goes today as India.

Rather than worrying about implementing whatever promises, agreements, accords or pacts between Sri Lanka and India, what Sri Lanka should do is to demand compensation through the International Court of Justice for the damage India has inflicted upon it. India turned a rag tag bunch of street thugs originating from Velvetithurai and other regions of Northern Sri Lanka to a powerful and ruthless and killing machine that was ready to take on the armed forces of sovereign Sri Lanka head on. It is only after the Sri Lanka-based LTTE killers were annihilated in May 2009 “”…” the terrorists would have been vanquished in 1987, if not for India poking its dirty finger “”…” that Sri Lankans have started enjoying the peace that had been hijacked by LTTE.

Karunanidhi, please take all Tamils in Sri Lanka who do not want to be Sri Lankans to Tamil Nadu or send them to Australia. Sri Lanka then will be a peaceful country.

    This is the situation we must create.

    Make life MISERABLE for Tamils to live like Tamils in SL that they will

    1. not come to SL in drones
    2. leave SL in drones

    There is NO other solution.

    SL does NOT need Tamils.
    IF Tamils truly need SL give up their Tamil Nadu language, Tamil Nadu culture and Tamil Nadu mentality and become a true Sinhela (the correct name of SL).

    Samething applies to Arabs. They can practice whatever religion.

  2. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    LORENZO !! We have a big problem now. We need to find the Boats that would last for atleast four hours. I have seen some moored in Beruwela bay. They need a little touch up, to catch up. Lankan Tamils AHOY !!! Bon Voyage.

    Also, we should Party with Karuna nehe nidi, the Gem with no sparkle. Should not forget to invite Jaya Lolita, too.

  3. stanley perera Says:

    What a brilliant idea Karuna imagined of. Australia is fighting tooth nail to protect Tamil people of victimisation, harrassments and being denied of basic human rights. 60 million Tamil Nadoos and 3 million Sri Lankan Tamils are not big issue to Australasia. Karuna, Jayalalitha and Sampanthan also must go. Australia is capable to accomodate Tamil people who are suffering. nThe land mass of Australia is such that only 10% is made use of. Australia needs people. Australia set an example in settling down Burger people which the UK followed. Well done Karuna, please also include 20 million Sinhalese also who are being ripped of by politicos.

  4. Sarath W Says:

    The old dog has come out with the truth. The Tamils are not discriminated in Sri Lanka, they simply want a better life in western countries.First they come to Sri Lanka to escape the poverty in Tamil Nadu. They get all the benefits from Sri Lanka like free education, free health and then play the ‘discrimination’ card to get citizenship in western countries.The government should provide them the boats to get out.

  5. cassandra Says:

    No, I don’t think “there is clear evidence that some of his grey matter cells are still functioning”. On the contrary, what this demonstrates is that the Old Man is as batty as he ever was. He should know that you cannot simply ask Australia to take in the Sri Lankan Tamils, and expect Australia to agree. If Karunanidhi has any sense (something about which there has always been some doubt!) the more practicable thing he could have suggested would have been to ask the Indian Central government to make a home for the Sri Lankan Tamils in their natural motherland, India!

  6. stanley perera Says:

    No, No, No, 20 million Sri Lankans and 60 million Nadoos are being ripped off by politicos. Australia is big enough to accommodate comfortably in Australia. The full continent is populated with only 20 million people. Please Karuna, Jayalalitha and Honourable Mr. Sampanthan tell the bloody Australia to take the lot. They are all being ripped off by the politicos.

  7. Sarath W Says:

    Cassandra, even the old dog knows the Tamils too hate India.That is why the Kallathonys come to Sri Lanka.

  8. Lorenzo Says:

    As usual Cassandra gets the wrong end of the statement.

    Karuna did NOT say Australia should ACCEPT Tamils. He only said SL Tamils should GO (or be SEND – however you interpret the Tamil statement) to Australia.

    ANYTHING can happen en route to Australia!! The fun is in the journey!!

  9. S.Gonsalkorale Says:

    Ask the old bugger to contact Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbot.

  10. stanley perera Says:

    Rudd is a LTTE lover. He has no hope on earth winning the election. To teach this fellow a good lesson send 100 leaky boats a day to Australia. Oh my god the Karuna, tell the whole wide world to accept all racist tamils. First donkey Sampanthan, monkey Karuna and the plum pudding.

  11. Christie Says:

    Greens in Australia love Tamils and other Indians. They get funding and they are a block vote for the Greens.

  12. Fran Diaz Says:



  13. cassandra Says:


    The article says the Old Man wanted the Central government to facilitate the migration of SL Tamils to Australia. That surely implies that Australia would accept them. I don’t know how you can place a different construction on that but clearly we don’t see things the same way!

  14. Mr. Bernard Wijeyasingha Says:

    Lets look at the Sri Lanka on a much broader context. India openly supported the Tamil Tigers against Colombo but Sri Lanka was aided by Pakistan and China in procuring weapons and training. So India’s proxy war with Sri Lanka was also a proxy war between China and Pakistan against India. This civil war involved all the major powers of the sub continent including China. In that sense the conclusion of the war and the constant bombardment by the Tamil government is only the dying sounds of this war. The repercussions of this war can be surmised by a quote from Cho En Lai who was asked “What did he think of the French revolution on history”, to which he replied “It was too soon to tell”. That was 1952 and the French revolution started in 1788 or over 300 years ago. The same can be stated of the Sri Lankan civil war and the effects it will have on the subcontinent and much further out. The war has only ended four years ago and one cannot even fathom what would be the results of this 30 year long war.

  15. Lorenzo Says:


    No it doesn’t necessarily imply that. He may try to do that as a bargaining tool, to show to the world Tamilians are mistreated in SL, give Tamilians a homeland in vastly empty Australia, make life way better for SL Tamils (Australia is a developed country), help reduce Tamilians in SL, etc. It can imply many DIFFERENT things.

    But one thing is certain – sending SL Tamils OUT OF SL, Australia bound is good for SL whether they REACH Australia or not.

    Tamil population % was 18% in 1981 (before war). 15% now (after war). The reason for this PROMISING DEVELOPMENT is MIGRATION. TNA gets only 2% of national vote today thanks to this. Otherwise they will get 5%.

  16. Fran Diaz Says:

    Solving of Tamil problems for the vast majority of Tamils on earth: The onus is on Tamil Nadu & India, for some 72 Million Tamils in TN & India.

    Tamils of Sri Lanka have all the rights that others here have. They have FREE education & health care, same as others. They are free to live anywhere or leave Lanka for any other port of their choice.

  17. Fran Diaz Says:

    When people write in, they differ in the stating % of Tamil population in Sri Lanka.

    Some say 4%, referring to the Northern Tamils. Does this figure include the East as well ? Others say 14%, including all Tamils but excluding Upcountry Tamils. The correct figure is 18% when ALL Tamils of Sri Lanka are taken into account, including Upcountry.

    Please correct me if I am wrong here. We say it is very important that we get this % figure right and quote that figure in all articles and comments.

  18. Lorenzo Says:

    Well done SL. Really proud of you.

    This is why SOME PUNDI-TS are WRONG about the govt.

    “In an apparent tit for tat, Sri Lanka is moving in the direction of a nuclear pact with Pakistan after India voted against it at the UN this year.

    At the same time, it is dragging its feet on a similar pact with India by not scheduling talks despite Delhi’s keenness to conclude the agreement soon.

    India had offered Sri Lanka a comprehensive nuclear pact that would deal with all aspects of civil nuclear cooperation, including safety and training of professionals. One round of talks was held in October last year, and India also sent the southern country a draft pact.

    But since then, Delhi has been waiting for a Lankan response on dates for further talks. Official sources said, “We are yet to hear from them,” despite offering a “comprehensive pact”.

    Meanwhile, sources said foreign secretary-level talks between Sri Lanka and Pakistan have identified civil nuclear technology as a major area of cooperation.

    Statements made by Lankan authorities show their intent to negotiate nuclear deals with both India and Pakistan, sources said.

    Sri Lanka’s overtures to Pakistan are of concern to India, which sees its western neighbour as a country “with dubious non-proliferation records”. It also has issues with Colombo overlooking its intention to give it the best possible deal. The second vote against Sri Lanka on the Tamil issue at the UN human rights council in March this year upset the country.

    Of the 25 countries that voted against Sri Lanka, only India and South Korea were from Asia. Thirteen members, including Pakistan and China, voted against the resolution and eight abstained. India had voted against Sri Lanka in 2012 as well.” – Hindustan Times

  19. Lorenzo Says:


    Total Tamilians in SL in 2012 was 15.37%.

    (Wish it was lower.)

  20. Fran Diaz Says:

    Another point we would like to focus on is the GLOBAL Tamil Forum located in Britain. Why are British Tamils calling themselves Global when it should be British Tamil Forum ? It appears that Tamils who are now in Britain (post Tamil EXODUS TO THE WEST after trumped up & false 1983 Riots in Sri Lanka), are the world leaders for Tamils ? Why aren’t such Global Tamil Forums formed in Tamil Nadu, the only true Homeland of Tamils ? Why in Britain which is an ex-colonial country as far as both India & Sri Lanka are concerned ?

    The other organisation which is questionable is the Tamil Government in Exile (USA). When they say ‘TAMIL GOVERNMENT IN EXILE’ (TGE) does it include coverage for ALL Tamils all over the world, including those in Tamil Nadu & India ? The TGE is composed ONLY of Sri Lanka Tamils.

    As we said earlier, the onus of problem solving for the vast numbers of Tamils in Tamil Nadu lies with Tamil Nadu leaders, and not with Sri Lanka leaders.

  21. Fran Diaz Says:


    Thanks. How does that figure 15.37% split into Northern, Eastern, Upcountry & Rest, do you know ?

  22. Cerberus Says:

    Better still why doesn’t India take all the illegal migrant Sri Lanka Tamils who came from Tamil Nadu to escape from the Caste system, the institutionalized slavery system that exists in Tamil Nadu. Most of the Sri Lanka Tamils do not identify with Sri Lanka. Their bodies are in Sri Lanka where they get free education, free health care, get a salary, work, pensions etc. yet their hearts are in Tamil Nadu. They go abroad and speak against Sri Lanka which has given them everything. The people who do this should be put on a list and should not be allowed to step in to the country.

    The stupid Sinhalese are so kind hearted they let these fellows do as they please. We should enforce the 6th amendment and like India make it a serious offense to encourage secession or act in any way to separate or divide the country. It should be punishable by confiscation of their property, and that of their immediate family. Other countries such as Malaysia who have this infestation of Tamils have very strict laws to control them. Fiji has barred all Indians from even entering the country.

  23. Lorenzo Says:


    Please go to department of census and statistics SL.

    Look under Census of Population and Housing.

    Look under Latest Release by District, DS Level & GN Level.

    Click the PDF Population & Housing Data.

  24. Ancient Sinhalaya Says:

    Sri Lanka is Sinhalese only country. We can not claim any other country ours on the planet. For that fact, apart from the Sinhalese in the Island, everybody else are guests or descendants of the guests.

    You do not need history books or the internet to prove it. Thre are no historic buildings anywhere in the country to show who have been living there for 1000s of years. Can people left Sri Lanka for other countris (surprise, surpise, developed countries only) demand a separate country for themselves in a few hundred years in those countries? Of course not. They are rich and powerful. They wouldn’t dream such a ludicrous idea. But poor Sri Lanka is different.

    Mother Lanka educated these ungrateful FREE, provided FREE health care. Now they have left for pastures green. Still not happy. So they want a separate country to go on holiday. Not rich enough, not powerful enough. So everybody try to use Sri Lanka as a door mat. India treat Sri Lanka as a colony of theirs. I wonder why they not trying to force their will on China.

    What Sri Lanka need is a nuke. Then everybody takes notice. Everybody listens! Until that Sri Lankan government should bring in new laws to stop these guests multiplying to outnumber natives. Limit 2 children to a family. STOP FREE ED, STOP FREE MED AFTER TWO CHILDREN. Failing that Sinahalese going to be wiped out by the guests’ population.

  25. Ancient Sinhalaya Says:

    Aussies weeping for Sri Lankan Tamils thousands of miles away. We wonder why? Maybe there are a lot of votes to be
    had in those mps’ constituencies. What a shame they can’t see the poor Aboriginies from whom they stole the country? Poor Aboriginies, the natives of Australia, have become foreigners in their own land thanks to these ‘sympathetic’ Aussies!

  26. Fran Diaz Says:


    Got it. Thanks again !

  27. Lorenzo Says:

    Ancient Sinhalaya,

    SL does NOT need nukes. But the plan to get nuke power technology from Pakistan is a good move. Or we can get nuke missile carrying Chinese subs to dock in SL. Endia will shut up BOTH ends of its digestive system!!!

    Sinking fishing boats and crashing OLD UKRAIN transport planes would do.

    BUT it must be done SOON while their percentage is still “manageable”.

    Other thing is to get countries like Israel involved in SL as much as we can. They are NATURAL ENEMIES of Arabs. They will NOT do the job for us but will help us with methods, tools, etc.

    Australian sympathy should get more Tamilians in boats. State sponsored boat travel to Australia (to hell along the way) is the way to go.

  28. Lorenzo Says:

    Allow me to copy and past this DISGUSTING poem that appeared in Tamilnet. This is how they generate HATRED out of NOTHING.

    TOO BAD this is the Tamil culture.

    TOTALLY disgusting.

    “Full text of the article titled ‘Rape: Sri Lanka’s Weapon of Genocide’ jointly authored by Dr. N. Malathy and RM Karthick follows:

    My fellow Tamil women
    What have you done for peace in the isle?
    Take off your clothes and open up your vagina
    For the Sinhala warriors of the land of Buddha

    – Poem by an Angry Tamil Woman

  29. Fran Diaz Says:

    What an ugly poem ! Is it some concocted poem ?
    We don’t know what has made this woman so angry. It may be some paid and put up job, as is popularly happening among
    various Tamils (and others), mostly abroad, or to go abroad, &/or to gain attention and popularity for Tamil leaders Separatist cause. Some Tamil women may willingly want courtship and marriage to Sinhela men. What is wrong with that ?

    Look at the other side :

    * We have seen pictures of army soldiers carrying old Tamil women on their shoulders during floods
    * What kindness was extended to the majority of Tamils during/after Riots of 1983, by Sinhela householders who
    risked their lives to protect Tamils (my family did this too)
    * What tolerance from the majority of Sinhela people when Tamil leaders constantly call for 50-50, Federalism, Separatism
    * Sheltering, Feeding, clothing for Tamil people distributed to Tamils & others after Tsunami, mostly by Sinhela Buddhist Temples
    * Land & housing distributed to Upcountry Tamils in tea estates, with wage increases (60% of profits go to wages)
    * Money, Food, clothing, housing, distributed to dispossessed Tamils of the North after war finished with ltte
    * Tamil Ethnic enclaves all over the island doing far better than other communities
    * Tamils have the greatest numbers entering Universities for FREE education

    Please add other items. The list of ACTS OF KINDNESS is endless ….
    This must be still the Age of Kali Yuga – the Caste culture coming from Tamil Nadu.

  30. Fran Diaz Says:

    This Angry Tamil Woman ‘poem’ has been published in Tamilnet most probably to get rid of the Armed forces from the North.
    What can you expect of some Tamil people fed on Lies, cheat & deceit by Tamil leaders ?

  31. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    FRAN !! SHE OPENED AND WAITED, WAiTED, BUT WAS NOT SERVICED. Now, “Hell hath no fury, than a woman scorned.”

  32. Mr. Bernard Wijeyasingha Says:

    Karunanidhi must have forgotten that Australia has a policy toward opportunistic Tamils that reads. “we don’t want them you can have them they are too crooked for us”

  33. Fran Diaz Says:


    Re the correct percentage of Tamils in Sri Lanka : We have to take into consideration TAMILS who are now Muslims. There is a HIDDEN number of Tamils within the Muslim numbers. Are they the Tamil speaking Muslims ?

    The word ‘Tamil’ is ethnic whilst ‘Muslim’ is a religion. Ethnic Tamils get hidden inside the ‘Muslim’ identity & tag.

    Also, as far as I know, Muslims are the only group that has political parties in Sri Lanka.

  34. Fran Diaz Says:

    read as ” …….Muslims are the only religious group that has political parties in Sri Lanka”.

  35. Lorenzo Says:


    I disagree.

    Once a Tamil or a Sinhalese becomes a Muslim, no going back. They and their kids will ALWAYS be Muslims.

    The reduction in Tamil percentage is due to war deaths and migration.

  36. Fran Diaz Says:


    I do not know the Tamil speaking Muslim numbers in Sri Lanka. Generally speaking, I am assuming that most of the Tamil speaking Muslims are actually Tamils who have converted to Islam. If you know the number of Tamils converted to Islam, please let us know.

    I agree with you that usually it is “once a Muslim, always a Muslim”. But I do know that there are a fair number of people in the Middle East who were born to Muslim families, who are now Christians.

    Have Tamil percentages really reduced in Lanka in spite of over a Million Tamils migrating (mostly to the west) ?

    Tamil illegal migration into Lanka during the ltte rule of the N&E had made ‘upkeep’ of Tamil numbers in Lanka possible.
    Lanka is merely the transit point to USE, slander & discard for Tamils migrating illegally out of Tamil Nadu. This has to stop.
