There us every reason to believe that the Canadian Government’s pursuance of Sri Lankan for accountabilty to alleged human rights violations is a direct result of the huge Tamil Lobby in Canada as well as globally towards their cause as retaliation for the defeat of their champions the Tamil Tigers and the non achievement of secssion vis a vis the term Tamil Eelam. In response the Sri Lanka Government says that Canada is falling for propaganda based on Tamil frustrations as a result of failed attempts at Eelam conducted by the defunct Tamil Tiger terrorists.

Canada’s criticism of the Asian country’s human-rights record and its demands for an international inquiry is an about face attitude change from Canada’s previous support of Sri Lanka’s drive to eliminate terrorism, the reasons for which are gradually becoming more apparent where Canada could face accountability to the whole world themselves if the dangerous Tamil Tigers were given an opportunity to re-group and a point Canada needs to ponder upon very seriously before they continue to bear down on Sri Lanka as the terrorists could easily interpret Canada’s attitude as being in their favour where what might follow leaves nothing to the imagination.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Sri Lanka’s envoy to Canada, High Commissioner Chitranganee Wagiswara has expressed dissapointment on behalf of the GOSL that Canada seems to be barking up the wrong tree in an unjustifiable manner given the rapport that existed between the countries in the past. In a recent statement to the Canadian Press she has stated that “We are not happy about the statements being made. … We want Canada to see the correct situation.” It has been made clear that the Sri Lankan Government is being unfairly targetted where the reason seems plainly visible and has mainly to do with the Anti- Sri lankan Tamil lobby which has known links to the eliminated Tami Tigers although some of their proxies still continue with high funding from the Tamil Diaspora. Eat your heart out Raj Rajaratnam and may your sentence be a testimony to how you supported the Tigers!

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ What Canada seems to be doing whether inadvertently or not is providing leeway for another emergence of the Tamil Tiger terrorist group where in dancing to the tunes of the Tamil Lobby with obvious links to the Tamil Tigers ( now gone underground to a greater part globally) who will undoubtedly take courage that Canada’s stance against Sri Lanka and similar posturings by Britain, the USA and Australia are cause enough for them to re- emerge from their underground cell. Evidence of this already seems to be surfacing where Tamil Tiger proxies such as the TNA are already making a play towards political legitimacy where they are well known for their LTTE sympathies and related links and a matter of time before their shenanigans begin and the once powerful LTTE machine could get geared up again.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ It is also a consternation from a Sri Lanka standpoint that Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird has criticized Sri Lanka for what he terms ” blocking international efforts to investigate the conduct of its forces in the final days of its long civil war against the terrorist Tamil Tigers” which seems somewhat incongruous and baseless as Sri Lanka has made genuine attempts to show accountability (albeit rejected by those who would be affected by it for reasons best known to them and to suit their agendas ) which exercises legitimate responsibility for the military action that was needed to eliminate a deadly terror group that was capable of annihilating a Sovereign Nation and annexing Territory which was Sovereign and an integral part of Sri Lanka to which they had absolutely no right in the guise of terrorists attempting to liberate a minority of Tamils who were in collussion with them by force.

The flowery rhetoric of Mr Baird is not good enough to disrupt Sri Lanka’s legitimate stand to defend Territory and protect her people which also entailed the so called dispossessed Tamils whose rights are at this very moment being restored in a capacity which will perhaps boggle Mr. Bairds mind. He needs to take a closer look towards re-structuring his statements to accommodate the legitimacies of Sovereign Sri Lanka and re-defining his interpretations of the term”Human Rights Violations” in an applicable and acceptable concept rather than in a manner flybynight politicos ( not a reference to them!) often coin phrases and twist the truth to near distortion!!! Shall we use the Sri Lankan and Indian opposition parties as examples towards this definition if we may?

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Mr. Baird and perhaps also his CEO need to look around the world for real and serious violaters of human rights who get away scot free literally with murder as quite obviously there are no persons of vested interest supporting their caucases as election year approaches and the transparencies of the Harper Government towards accommodating the Tamil hue and cry, its whys and wherefores are becoming quite visible to the discerning eye.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Sri Lanka’s actions despite the condemnations by Canada and the others involved have been accepted by many credible and rational Nations as precedent setting and commendable towards the global war against terrorism. A pont which seems to fly over the heads of the Canadians by miles! All the calls to investigate human rights violations consequently are baseless and inapplicable where the terrorists have left behind a horrendous record of attrocities and a legacy of mayhem and destruction of an unprecedented level which if it had not been for military intervention could have devastated Sri Lanka and transformed the country to a wasteland.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ The greatest human rights violations which the likes of Messers Baird, Harper and the rest of the Canadian Administrators seem to envision are creations of the adversaries and enemies of Sri Lanka who have falsely portrayed what truly transpired through almost three decades of an insurgency where the only contributors to the mayhem ensuing, who showed no respect to humanity were the Tamil Tigers. It was the Government of Sri Lanka that assured the final restoration of order to the Nation and assuaged the plight of all citizens affected by eliminating the terrorists and the sooner Canada and the team of global Lankan bashers hell bent on hounding Sri Lanka on falsely portrayed accusations recognize this the better it will be for Canada’s image and credibility as a compassionate and non aligned Nation.

    Unfortunately, Harper’s adventure of his attempt to breaking into the Tamil voters (perhaps 10,000 of them which has the LTTE influence) comes with a hefty price tag for Sri Lanka, who defeated its local Tamil terrorism!
