Sir:

“The activist group Amnesty International accuses key United Nations human rights bodies of inaction or of being ineffectual, a report set for release today shows”, you said.  And you continued to say, “Amnesty International says 47-member body has suffered “paralysis” in dealing with alleged atrocities in Sri Lanka”.

If there was “paralysis” my assumption is simply that a reality check as to what has gone on since April 2009 and after the Tamil Tigers were militarily wiped out on May 18, 2009, after haemorrhaging that island nation for 27 years which accounted to over 100,000 killings have placed them in a quandary.   Because the 47-member body at the UN  had to reconcile with the fact that since May  18, 2009, Sri Lanka has not shed a single tear because of  human rights violations by the Tamil Tigers with human suicide bombings and claymore mine blasts planted by them killing innocent commuters almost daily in Sri Lanka.

That the Sri Lankan government has given back the right-to-life to all its 22 million peoples  which had been hijacked by the Tamil Tigers, and now do not have to  make  signs of the cross or put their palms together in prayer before they got onto a bus or  train on their way to work each morning wanting to arrive at their destinations in one piece without being blown to smithereens by a bomb blast.

To know that 566 former Tamil Tiger child soldiers who were lucky enough to survive this war and taken alive by the government soldiers have been rehabilitated and been handed over to their parents and communities having given them a complete course of educational or vocational training so that they could catch up with their fellow citizens in their towns and villages.

To know that 230 thousand of the 288 thousand Tamils who were liberated from the Tamil Tiger clutches having been held as human shields have been sent to their original homes having had their houses repaired, rebuilt, terrain demined and health clinics, school, market places and banks being re-established since May 18, 2009. 

To know that the majority Sinhalese prepared a million meals a day to feed these rescued Tamils three meals a day was a paramount Human rights gesture not letting them die or suffer from starvation.  That it was watching a miracle at work contrary what we hear of charges of ‘genocide’ from the Tamil Tiger propagandists abroad.

That the order has come from President Rajapaksa that all the welfare villages to be closed in three months and have all the Tamils who were liberated from the Tamil Tigers sent to their homes after demining their villages.

It is obvious that AI has difficulty to discern between positive Human Rights at work after  the conclusion of a war, and negative Human Rights violations during a war. AI better be honest without being foolish anymore regarding Sri Lanka before they become suspect and irrelevant on the Sri Lankan file.

  1. Sam Says:

    Organizations like the AI thrive on chaos and when there is not enough of it, they create them to justify their existence. They prey on poor countries like Sri Lanka and treat rich countries of the west very differently. These are just parasites living on chaos like worms living on on carcasses. Unfortunately most NGOs are the same! To justify their existence, they create mountains from ant-hills! Scumbags no doubt.
