Canadian PM Harper’s representative MP Deepak Obhrai had laid flowers‚ at the Elephant Pass LTTE cemetery. LTTE terrorists fought against the lawfully established govt of Sri Lanka.‚  Obhrai’s action‚ would of course boost the morale of the Tamil diaspora. Obhrai had done this despite the fact that even in Canada the LTTE is proscribed as a terrorist organisation.‚  Accompanying Obhrai‚ had been the HIgh Commissioner for Canada, Shelley Whiting. A request‚  by the Sri Lankan official, who accompanied them,‚ to refrain from doing so had been ignored. This is something that should be‚ looked into by higher authorities.
‚ 
Obhrai may have taken‚ this step‚ with Harper’s approval.‚ From now on, there could be others who would follow the‚ Canadian Rep to‚ please the Tamil diaspora by laying flowers at ‘Tiger’ cemeteries. The British PM Cameron,‚ who is making all the noise and jumping up and down could try his hand at this to collect a few more votes.
‚ 
Navi Pillai tried to be smart by laying flowers at Nandikadal lagoon, to commemorate Prabhakaran and the terrorists who died at the recent war. The Sri Lankan officials who accompanied her strictly warned that‚ the tour in Wanni would be cancelled if she goes ahead with her plan. Sri Lankan officials who provide security to foreign‚ delegates, should be briefed against laying of flowers for terrorists at LTTE‚ cemeteries by visitors. They can lay flowers or put up monuments in their own countries for Al Qaida, Taliban and other terrorist outfits.
