New Delhi, August 23 (NDTV)): Indian National Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said he and his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra were not happy after the terror group LTTE’s chief Prabhakaran, who ordered the assassination of his father Rajiv Gandhi, was killed, as they felt the violence inflicted upon him had impacted others, including his children”.

The Congress chief said he had lost two members of his family to violence.

My grandmother (Indira Gandhi) and my father (Rajiv Gandhi) were both killed. So, I have suffered violence,” Rahul said at the Bucerius Summer School in Hamburg, Germany.

I am talking actually from experience. The only way you can move forward after violence is forgiveness. There is no other way. And to forgive you have to understand what exactly happened and why it happened,” Rahul said.

Former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was killed by two of her bodyguards in 1984, and her son and former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated by a suicide bomber of the LTTE in 1991. Sri Lankan security forces shot dead Prabhakaran and destroyed the LTTE in May 2009, ending a quarter century of separatist war in the island nation.

Prabhakaran with his wife Madhivadhani, son Charles Anthony and daughter Dwaraka. All including the last son Balachandran were killed in the war.

To deal with it is to actually listen and act non-violently. People think this is weakness. But in fact this is strength. My father was killed by a terrorist in 1991. In 2009, I saw the person who killed my father lying in a field in Sri Lanka,” Rahul said.

I called up my sister Priyanka and said that this is very strange, but I am not happy. I should be celebrating that the person who is dead is the person who killed my father. But somehow I am not happy. She said ‘you are right, I am not happy either’,” the Congress chief said. The reason I wasn’t happy was because I saw myself in his children. So, I realised, him lying there actually means that there are kids like me who are crying,” he added.

He might have been a bad or an evil person, but the violence that was done against him was impacting others, like it had impacted me. If you go deep, you will find there is something that triggered that violence. It’s not just a random event. Some action or violence done against him or her has triggered it,” Rahul  said.

He also said that the only way one can fight violence is by non-violence.

There is no other way. You might be under the illusion that you can fight violence with violence, but it will come back. You might think that you are very powerful and that you can subdue somebody else, but they will find a way of coming back.”

    These two are talking like they have just been born to the world. Are they so foolish to understand that if Prabakaran lived how many fathers and mothers he would kill to materialise his dream Ealam which would leave 1000’s of children without parents.

    These “new born” also should learn from the history that the origin of this Terror group who inflicted violence upon innocent civilians was their Grand Mother herself. She provided training these terror groups in India and did this clandestine operation against a sovereign country. Actually these living grand children of Indira should apologise from Sri Lankan people for the terror discharged upon civilians by the LTTE and other terror groups trained by India. They cut open the pregnant women and killed them with all the children in neighbouring villages.

    If they are not fools, they are trying something smart to get an political advantage to come back to power with Tamil votes by portraying that they are holy people.

    What I can say to them is keep away from dirty politics and be honest to yourself truly, not only on surface. Your actions today can create havocs in the future since there are 1000’s of foolish people to vote you into power by believing the blatant lies you publicly say.

    Don’t create another karmic cycle.

    As 2019 Indian elections drawn near these nonsensical things will worsen. Congress party is after Tamil and Bengal support to grab power again. They have the Muslim and leftist party support.

    LTTE did India a favour by saving India from a former Italian (a NATO country) ruler. Sadly, Pakistan and Sri Lanka still face the threat of NATO proxy rule by British and American citizens and former citizens.

  3. Sarath W Says:

    As I said many times before, the only good thing Prabhakaran did was killing Rajiv Gandhi. Gandhis were responsible of creating the Tamil terrorists and they paid the ultimate price for their terrorism.

  4. Vaisrawana Says:

    Exactly, Sarath W.

  5. Christie Says:

    It is Indian imperialists who directly involves with our politics from early 1920s.

    No wonder Rajiv feels sorry for Prabakaran.

    Indians always stand up for their Empire and Rajiv and Priyanka are the same.

    I am feeling sad now. If he was alive, at least we had South. Now we have lost all.
