United States psychiatrist and pro-LTTE propagandist Ellyn Shander has been prevented from entering India to speak about what she claims as genocide in Sri Lanka.

The meeting has been organized by an organization called Delhi Tamil Students Union, allegedly having connections with leading LTTE supporters in India, like Vaiko, leader of the Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam.

Shander was scheduled to fly to India with the possession of a valid visa to visit the country on September 11 but on September 10 the Indian government withdrew the visa visibly agitating her supporters like Vaiko to accuse India of supporting what he called Tamil genocide in Sri Lanka. The party leader going on the same slogan lost his election to Lok Sabha at the last general election from a Tamil electorate.

Due to the withdrawal of the visa a taped message of Sandler was played at the Indian Islamic Center meeting where only 200 attended despite the pre-meeting publicity. Sandler compared the Mahinda Rajapaksa government to the Nazis in her taped message and attacked the Indian government of supporting the Sri Lankan government by turning a blind eye to the atrocities. She said, “We are asking the Indian government to save the Tamils of India from extinction. Liberate the concentration camps.” The IDP welfare camps the Sri Lanka government maintains for about 250,000 people are referred as concentration camps, a slogan used by the LTTE propaganda units.

MDMK leader Vaiko , who addressed the meeting attacked Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s government for aiding what he called Sri Lankan genocide.

Vaiko further told the Islamic Center meeting, “We resolve to move the United Nations to take action to ensure the removal of illegal settlements of Sinhalese created by the Lankan government… these must be restored to the Tamil people.” He further accused that the Indian government has conspired with the Rajapaksa government. He added, “India has betrayed the cause of the Tamil people. The Indian government is responsible for the demolition of the LTTE movement.”

    Ellyn Shander should consult another psychiatrist before she treats others who suffer from mental disorders. She has many dreams and sleeping disorders also, it seems.
