It is reported that the DMK, Tamil Nadu’s major Opposition Party and it’s BJP alley, THE PMK have expressed their opposition to Sri Lankan government’s opinion that it is not necessary to sing the Sri Lankan national anthem in Tamil at the forthcoming Independence Day celebrations.

While we reject the view point of the Tamil Nadu’s racist politicians interference in a Sri Lankan  domestic issue. which the Sri Lankan Government  has the capability of examining in detail and taking their own decisions for the benefit of the country. We have to reiterate that by making various strident noises concerning Sri Lankan Tamils the Indian politicians are attempting in vain to prove that they are the saviors of Sri Lankan Tamils which places the Sri Lankan Tamils in an awkward  position in relation to Sri Lankan nation state.

With regard to the Sri Lankan Nataional Anthem, it was the blunder made by the previous Government which  allowed a translated song to be accepted as a national anthem in Tamil whereas the country should have a single National Anthem, The translated Tamil national anthem has number of words which are different to the original including the term,  “Sri Lanka Matha’ The action should be taken urgently to rectify this aspect and replace the original song, The national anthem can be  written in Tamil ,but it should not be a translation. The government must get its teeth to this issue urgently without any delay.

As for the Tamil Nadu racists politicians we request them to look after their back yard by requesting or demanding the Central Government of India to get them the approval to sing a translated Indian Anthem in Tamil. We await to hear the response from the Central Indian Government.

    Have the rants from the Racist Tamils in the North changed one-bit during the time the National Anthem was allowed to be sung in both Sinhalese and Tamil?

    It perhaps only increased their belligerence for federalism and through that to Eelam. For seventy years under the leadership of the Racist Tamil leaders, the Tamil people of the North and East have achieved little other than them remaining in the shackles of casteist politics, inventing a non-existing self-conflicting histories, that has no evidence on the ground and be the cat’s paw of Indian politicians and finding self-imposed exile!

    They have a bright future ahead as Sri Lankans only if they can change their racist mindset and learn to mingle with the rest of Sri Lanka.

    So, the problem is in the translation and not in the singing in Tamil?.
