Interestingly, whether it is due to a lack of cognizance and aversion to reality or basicƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ apathy, the rhetoric that comes out of Tamil politicians in Sri Lanka seem to be careening erratically on a path which makes little sense towards rationalities as self assumed captions and imagined entitlements seem to fog the minds of this apparently beuddled lot which is more cause for amusement rather than concern as the related realities are etched in stone and veritably unshakable in a nation of majority Sinhalese whose tolerances towards the irrationalities of a representation of aƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ minority communityƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ( with or withoutƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ entitlement thatƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ is!)ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ continuously in pursuit of an agenda for themselves howeverƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ is becoming somewhat of a consternation!

In this respect the recent item appearing in the Hindu Newspaper of India highlighting that “The Ilankai Tamil Arasu Katchi (ITAK), the main constituent of the Tamil National Alliance ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬‚’ the lone credible representative of Tamil people in the Northern Province’ ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬‚ has refused to revise its constitution, which seeks the establishment of a separate state, at its 14th national convention in the Eastern headquarter town of Batticaloa” should be of little or no concern to the Sri Lanka Administration based on legalities alone.

And as fas as being the “lone credible representative of Tamil people in the North”ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  it is more conjecture and a figure of speech about a group that has lost much credibility by virtue of supporting the defunct terror group the LTTE and continue to do so albeit in a veiled perspective which many discerning analysts percieve inasmuch as the watchful eye of the Administration towards posterity.

The fact of the matter is, the TNA has so many disentitlements towards any political credibility that it is somewhat curious as to why they are toleratedƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ and permitted leeway to continue what is quite apparent to the discerniong eye regardless of their fancy jargon which at times seems to fool some within the international community whose biases however have not been fully investigated as well as the protagonists of the anti-National band wagon on which a few shameless nationals seem to haveƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ sought a ride too!

Despite it being painfully obvious as pointed out in theƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ “Hindu”,ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ that “The Sixth Amendment to the Sri Lankan Constitution, enacted in August 1983, prohibits political parties from having as one of their aims the establishment of a Separate State, the administrators of the TNAƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  and affiliates do not want to admit it and beat around the bush as it were towards safeguarding their credibilities never disclosing their hidden intent openly as they are probably aware of the consequences.

Therefore when TNA sources have told “The HinduƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ” as reported that “ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ There was no move to amend the ITAK constitution,ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ . The ITAK has among its goals ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-establishing of a unitary Tamil State and a unitary Muslim State and achieving political, economical and cultural freedom of the Tamil speaking communityƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚. the writing’s virtually on the wall towards their real intentions and objectives where the contradictions are clearly visible!

There have also been references to a so called Tamil majority in the North and East of Sri Lanka, a demand for a return of land legally appropriated by the Government and a request for special concessions to the Tamil people of these areas affected by the LTTE insurgency quite forgetting that there were other ethnicities involved and that the Government believes in the merits of a merger between all ethnicities in this areas with no particular recognition of any political or ethnic faction for preferential treatmentƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  in order to avoid what transpired in the past which seems sensible enough.

It is alsoƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ affiliated to the embodiment of the principles of the LLRC which must take priority over the bickering of Tamil politicians who seem to want to recussitate the LTTE more than a need forƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ addrssing all communities in these regions as a whole rather than a fragmented part where reconciliation seems tS be the furthest thing on their minds!

Perhaps it isƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ a matter of necessity towards avoiding any confusion over the issue that -ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ aƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ petitionƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ has beenƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ filed recently in the Supreme Court which sought the disqualification of the parties for retaining the demand for a Separate State in their party documents, which petition will in all probabilities be upheld and acceded to within the law. It is something the TNA and its affiliates should pay special attention to and not prevaricate over the main issue which is a complete restoration of National Security and the preservation of Sovereignity and Territorial Integrity throughout the landƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ which does not cater only ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ to a less than 20% proportion of minority Tamils who delude themselves to believe that the North and East of Sri Lanka belongs to them when it does not!ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ and ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ are not prepared to throw in their lot with the rest of Sri Lanka towards progress and prosperity as a whole rather than a part!

Perhaps the National Constitution needs to be further amended to incorporate the legalities surrounding the need to outlaw and disentitle any political parties whose sole intention is to divide the Nation and needs to be set in placeƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ in a manner comprehensible to all concerned where the penalties need to be severe.

    Agree with Lanka Web editorial. Not only that as done in India & in many countries, words related separatism, another nation , or any form of language, pertaining to deviding Sri Lanka should be banned.

    If the very people who run to India to get advice, and inform them of Sri Lankan domestic problems sould also subjected to similar laws enacted in Sri Lanka to save the country from breaking up.

    Unitary state is here to stay & all political parties should be banned from using language that is un-patrotic & stiff fines should be levied. Further action to follow as its a democratically elected liberal democracy which Sri lanka enjoys.

    Thanks so much for the editorial & people should be encouraged to express their opinions about their Motherland.

    It has now come to a stage that SriLanka needs to act proactively in the international community to protect its sovereignity and good name as well as harmony amongst SriLankans living in the effected nations. The start should be for all diplomats and ambassadors to keep persisting with host governments to prohibit the public display of the SriLankan map with an imaginery separate state by less than 0.5% of the SriLankan separatist activists and also prohibit the carrying of the Tiger terrorist flag which has a similar status to the flag of the German Nazis, as both these flags represent the abhorrent acts of monsters in human form which brings out gruesome memories and divisions amongst the peace loving SriLankans living in those countries. Those ambassadors and diplomats that fail to pursue this task till they achieve this objective, should not get any extension to their appointments.

    Sorry, a correction to my above note posted ……..
    The wording, ” … less than 0.5% of Sri Lankan separatist activists ….”, should read as “Sri Lankan separatist activists who make up less than 0.5% of SriLankan population..”
