Are the demands of ITAK – TULF – TNA – LTTE – LTTE Fronts & India one & the same?
Posted on April 25th, 2016

Shenali D Waduge

Commencing with the ITAK in 1949 and its aims and objectives to the TULF and the Vaddukoddai Resolution of 1976 and the formation of the LTTE in the same year/month, to the demands made by LTTE (Thimpu Principles/ISGA as solutions) and India’s solutions (Indo-Lanka Accord/13th amendment) the similarities in the demands being made and the wordings used cannot be a coincidence. Taken together these highlight a very concerted effort with foreign support to divide an island nation using an ethnic group as excuse for the political aspirations of a handful of elite caste/class whose aspirations have combined well with the geopolitical needs and wishes of parties/countries & organizations that have been aligned to these players over the years. Demands for self-determination, autonomy, self-rule are all terminologies created by the British/West and indoctrinated into locals through colonial education system. The first demands have come even under British rule and aligned to India’s Tamil Nadu self-determination so obviously Sri Lanka’s Tamils who descend from India’s coastal Malabar and adjoining areas are only continuing the initial clarion call. Sadly, the context of these calls have not been highlighted by the politicians in Sri Lanka in particular the Sinhalese politicians of all political parties.

ITAK – Ilankai Thamil Arasu Katchi

  • Formed on 18 Dec 1949 (a year after Sri Lanka gained independence from the British)
  • ITAK says ‘Shamasthi’ stood for Federalism why have they replaced it with ‘Innaipatchchi’ in 2008?

Excerpts from speech by Samuel J. V. Chelvanayagam, 1949, Maradana, Ceylon.

  • We have met together with the common aim of creating an organisation to work for the attainment of freedom for the Tamil speaking people of Ceylon.”
  • Tamil speaking people were divided into three groups: Muslims, Indian Tamils and Ceylon Tamils.”
  • The Muslims and Ceylon Tamils occupy parts of the country which had been least developed during the British period and had actually under­gone decay.”
  • “The Tamil people of Ceylon have rejected the Soulbury Constitution in as much as at the general elections not one Tamil candidate of the U. N. P. was elected to Parliament and all but one of the Tamil Representatives who voted for the acceptance of the White Paper of 1945 in the defunct State Council were (sic) defeated. The All Ceylon Tamil Congress demands a free constitution for Ceylon conferring sovereignty on its people with equal freedom for all communities and calls for a constituent assembly to frame a constitution acceptable to all sections of the people. An Unitary Government with present composition of legislature and structure of executive totally una­acceptable to the Tamils. In the absence of a satisfactory alternative we demand the right of self-determination for the Tamil people.” (Telegram sent by President of the Tamil Congress through the Governors Office to the Secretary of State for the Colonies on 20th November 1947)

If the GOSL continues ‘suppressing our people, grabbing more land, destroy our people’s wealth, subject our women and children to abuse and keep postponing the achieving of a political solution’ before the end of 2014 ITAK resolves to ‘commence a non-violent struggle in the lines of Mahatma Gandhi from January next year (2015)’. ITAK appeals to international community including India to support.

Sampanthan’s speech at the 14th Annual ITAK convention in 2012 Batticoloa covered the following points :

  • ITAK ‘political symbol of the Tamil Nation with its own political culture and ideals’
  • ITAK ‘single most recognized political organization both here and abroad, which embodies the political aspirations of the Tamil people’
  • ITAK remembers the ‘Tamil youth who sacrificed their lives in armed struggle’
  • ITAK is gathered following ‘our victory in the passage of the recent Resolution at UN Human Rights Council’
  • ITAK created by SJV Chelvanayagam father of the Tamil Nation to establish self determination of the Tamil people. ‘This objective is evident in both the name of the party and the manner in which it operates’.
  • ITAK is the leader of the TNA alliance
  • ITAK is now the ‘legitimate representative of the Tamil people’
  • ‘Tamil United Liberation Front, of which our party was a member took the historical decision to establish the separate government of Tamil Eelam in 1976’
  • ‘India will never welcome a political solution in Sri Lanka that does not accord with the interests of India’.
  • ‘Our expectation for a solution to the ethnic problem of the sovereignty of the Tamil people is based on a political structure OUTSIDE that of a UNITARY GOVERNMENT, in a UNITED SRI LANKA in which Tamil people have all the powers of government needed to live with self-respect and self sufficiency’.
  • ‘North and East of Sri Lanka are the areas of historical habitation of the Tamil speaking people’.
  • ‘meaningful devolution should go beyond the 13th Amendment to the Constitution passed in 1987’.
  • ‘our priority now is to expose the Sri Lankan government that for so many years in the past attempted to describe the ethnic problem and a ‘terrorist problem’”.
  • The international practice prevalent during the mid eighties, when the intervention of India occurred, has now changed. Although the issue at hand is the same, the prevailing conditions are different. The struggle is the same, but the approaches we employ are different. Our aim is the same, but our strategies are different. The players are the same, but the alliances are different. That is the nature of the Tamil people. Although we still have the same aim, the methods we use are now different.”
  • United States and India are to a great extent supporting our position.”
  • the Sri Lankan government will eventually be forced to include our participation in schemes being implemented for the economic development of our people. However, until then, we must be patient.”

TULF Tamil United Liberation Front

Vaddukoddai Resolution emerged from the first National Convention of the Tamil United Liberation Front meeting at Pannakam (Vaddukoddai Constituency) on the 14th day of May, 1976 by Chairman S.J.V. Chelvanayakam.

5 objectives were declared

  1. State of Tamil Eelam to consist of North & Eastern provinces to all Tamil speaking people
  1. Constitution of Tamil Eelam based on principles of decentralization. No foremost place to any religion or territorial community.
  1. Tamil Eelam will assure equal status to all
  1. Tamil Eelam will be a secular state with equal protection to all religions
  1. Tamil will be language of the State but Sinhala speaking minority can educate and transact in Sinhala subject to reciprocity of Tamil speaking minority in Sinhala state.

The Convention called upon Tamil youth to ‘throw themselves fully’ to ‘fight’ for freedom and to ‘flinch not till the goal of a sovereign state of Tamil Eelam is reached”.

TULF Manifesto 1977

The TULF formed an alliance with the three Indian backed paramilitary groups, Eelam National Democratic Liberation Front (ENDLF), Eelam People’s Revolutionary Liberation Front (EPRLF) and Tamil Eelam Liberation Organization (TELO), to contest the 15 February 1989 election. The alliance won 3.40% of the popular vote and 10 out of 225 seats in the Sri Lankan parliament.

Note: Prabakaran set up Tamil New Tigers (TNT) on May 22, 1972 at the age of 17 immediately after the Republican Constitution of Sri Lanka. In 1975 he killed Jaffna Mayor Alfred Duraiappah. He rechristened TNT as Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) on May 5, 1976 just days before the Vaddukoddai Resolution calling youth to fight for freedom.

The TULF Manifesto also stated that Eelam would be ultimately established either by peaceful means or by direct action or struggle.”

TULF 1994

Then TULF President, M. Sivasiththamparam, petitioned the court on July 8, 1994 for cancellation of the Jaffna poll. TULF pointed out the absurdity in having an election in the Jaffna electoral district as only about 10 per cent of the population lived in the area, under government control, whereas the rest lived with the LTTE.

TNA 2004 election manifesto

  • Find a political solution to the Tamil national problem based on the acceptance of the fundamental proposals regarding (Tamil Nation’s) Tamil homeland, Tamil Nation, Tamils’ right to self-government (autonomy). 
  • TNA on Muslims – Muslims have Tamil as their Mother tongue like the Tamils and on the recognition that they have lived in amity amongst the Tamil in the Tamil homeland, the TNA has decided that any solution to the Tamil national problem must incorporate matters and features that reassure the distinctiveness, security, culture and economy of the Muslims.
  • Sinhala nation should accept ISGA document put forward by the LTTE which contains excellent proposals  
  • The high security zones and armed forces camps which are located in areas populated by Tamils disregarding their welfare, priority given to strategic interest of warfare, should be removed and arrangements made for the Tamil people to return and settle in their places of residence.
  • The armed forces’ interdiction and oppression imposed must be lifted
  • The international community should step forward and directly assist in the pressing humanitarian needs and economic development schemes and improve the economic life of the Tamil nation.

  • An international judicial inquiry should be conducted to deliver justice to our people
  • All the provisions of the cease-fire agreements must be completely fulfilled and peace and normalcy should prevail in our homeland.
  • The LTTE has for the past two years put up with the violent, surly behaviour of the armed forces without impairing the conditions for peace and observing the cease-fire and acting steadfastly and firmly towards the path of peace. Hence, the international community should create the environment by removing the restrictions put in place by certain countries on the LTTE, the authentic sole representatives of the Tamil people, so that they could, with authority, dignity and with equal status conduct talks with the government of Sri Lanka.
  • Accepting LTTE’s leadership as the national leadership of the Tamil Eelam Tamils and the Liberation Tigers as the sole and authentic representatives of the Tamil people, let us devote our full cooperation for the ideals of the Liberation Tigers’ struggle with honesty and steadfastness. Let us endeavour determinedly, collectively as one group, one nation, one country, transcending race and religious differences, under the leadership of the LTTE for a life of liberty, honor and justice for the Tamil people. Let us work side by side with the LTTE, who are fighting for the protection and autonomous life of the Tamil speaking people, for the political initiatives under their leadership.

Anandasangaree writes to Narendra Modi in 2014 and says TNA is LTTE proxy

In a letter to Indian PM Modi TULF leader Anandasangaree says TULF MP Mavai Senathirajah who is in the process of reviving the Federal Party (ITAK) visited Killinochchi had meetings with the LTTE Deputy Political Commissar Thangan on 14-10-2003. The revival of the Federal party is being undertaken at the behest of the LTTE”…. The TNA was started by four parties of which TULF was one. The TULF was replaced by ITAK without any reference to anybody or to the party concerned. All concerned parties should now accept that both the TNA and the ITAK had been revived by dishonest means on the instigation of the LTTE to look after their interest. It is this TNA that nominated candidates for all electoral districts in the North and in the East for the 2004 elections, Mr. Tamilselvan retaining half the number of slots in each one of the electoral districts. Of all the members elected to the 2004 Parliament, majority belonged to the LTTE.”

In the same letter Anandasangaree writes that the secretaries of the ITAK, ACTC, Telo & EPRLF endorsed Accepting the leadership of the LTTE as the National Leadership of the Tamil people and also accepting the LTTE as the real sole – representatives of the Tamil people, we honestly and firmly pledge to give our full support for the struggle the LTTE had undertaken on behalf of the Tamil Nation”.

LTTE – Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam

The LTTE aims to create a separate homeland for the Tamils known as the Tamil Eelam (State) in the Northern and Eastern provinces of Sri Lanka. The LTTE leadership was organized along a two-tier structure: a military wing and a subordinate political wing. Overseeing both was a central governing committee, headed by the LTTE chief, Velupillai Prabhakaran.

Thimpu Principles – demands made by LTTE delegation in 1985

  • recognition of the Tamils of Ceylon as a nation
  • recognition of the existence of an identified homeland for the Tamils of Ceylon
  • recognition of the right of self determination of the Tamil nation
  • recognition of the right to citizenship and the fundamental rights of all Tamils of Ceylon

Note: Term Ceylon Tamils came to be used only after 1911 prior Tamils were known and referred to as Malabars by Portuguese, Dutch and British. Malabars are from India and have no right to seek self-determination in Sri Lanka while Ceylon Tamils earlier known as Malabars cannot seek self-determination either!

Global Tamil Forum

Key objectives

  • The creation of an independent, international war crimes accountability mechanism.
  • A negotiated political settlement that ends Tamil marginalisation. GTF, along with other Diaspora groups and Tamil representatives in Sri Lanka, are working towards a Tamil Common Declaration, which will state the conditions conducive to a political settlement that addresses the underlying grievances of the Tamil people.
  • The resettlement of IDPs to their places of origin.
  • An investigation into the fate and location of persons reported to have been disappeared.
  • The publication of a detainee database list.
  • The demilitarisation of Tamil areas and the restoration of complete civil administration to all militarised government departments and national institutions.
  • The end of the Sinhalisation of Tamil majority areas, with immediate effect.
  • To engage with civil society in South of Sri Lanka, in order to facilitate better understanding of each communities concerns and problems on the island.

 Transnational Government for Tamil Eelam

The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) is a political formation to win the freedom of the Tamil people on the basis of their fundamental political principles of Nationhood, Homeland and Right of self-determination.

It is not difficult to see that there is a very concerted and coherent call by ITAK, TNA, remnants of LTTE, LTTE fronts and even India to seek a separate nation. Their demands are aligned to the initial quest for self-determination in Tamil Nadu calling for a homeland for all Tamils of the world. The wordings used have been carefully articulated over the years so as to curry flavor with other self-determination quests and aligned to the UN (West’s instrument and puppet) who will be the mechanism to deliver these goals.

Sambanthan’s 2012 speech made in Batticoloa to the Tamil people is crucial to understand the psyche.

Although the issue at hand is the same, the prevailing conditions are different. The struggle is the same, but the approaches we employ are different. Our aim is the same, but our strategies are different. The players are the same, but the alliances are different. That is the nature of the Tamil people. Although we still have the same aim, the methods we use are now different.”

Sambanthan says the issue (self-determination for Tamils) is the same.

Sambanthan says the struggle (self-determination for Tamils) is the same

Sambanthan says their aims are the same (but strategies are different)

Sambanthan says the players are the same (but alliances are different

Sambanthan ends by saying That is the nature of the Tamil people. Although we still have the same aim, the methods we use are now different”

Where are our Sinhala politicians one has to wonder and what have they being doing about these calls to counter them with historical facts and evidence and place proper factual arguments before the world’s public who have been fooled all these years with lies and distorted history?

    Shenali, Indian Empire and Indian colonial parasites are concepts that one has to understand to understand the plight of us and other victims of non-violent aggression and oppression in the Indian Empire formerly the British-Indian Empire.

  2. Fran Diaz Says:

    Tamil leaders from the Vellala group have practised provocative and divisive politics in Lanka from the 1940s. Covering up Caste discrimination in the N&E plus distractions galore to form Eelam has been the political game, ever since the British gave Tamil Vellala leaders the political edge during British Colonial rule of Lanka.

    The trumped up Riots of 1983 gave them further clout, forcing and fooling the JRJ govt into allowing riots during Cold War times. Today, there are about a million Tamil folk who went as Refugees abroad to the west (only way to send them there was to purposely create riots and send them as Refugees), and form the Tamil Diaspora & the ‘Govt in Exile’ to create trumped up trouble for Lanka.

    Even today the same provocative politics go on.

    How is Yahap going to handle this ?
    Will they activate the 6-A and remove the 13-A ?

  3. Dham Says:

    I feel sorry for you Shenali. I feel sorry for all patriots.

    To hell with others we just need 70 REAL SINHALA people elected to parliament regardless of the parties. That is all we need. If we start with 1 it is OK, but that 1 Sarath Weerasekara lost the election thanks to MR who put him in a seat difficult for him to win.

    Suranjith Warnakulasuriya Says;

    I am very grateful to Shenali for her articles. I am very afraid that Sri Lanka will not be able to come out from this downfall, that they have fallen in due to the action of Maithree-Ranil-Chandrika-…… …….Pacha Ranawaka etc. , because the world’s hidden hands ( we know who are they, starting with U’s) are so powerful, and they can corrupt and buy the soul of peoples like Dham and Stanley.
    …To hell with others, we just need 70 Real Sinhala people; I have read your comments continuously for all the articles published in Lankaweb, I should say you are not falling to that 70, You must be a collaborator of that hidden hand. This is not a personal attack, I do not know who you are but I can understand who you are working for, I love my country, but I do not have the capabilities, energy, time and space to make a service to Mother Sri Lanka. That is why, I appreciate the service given by Mahinda Rajapaksa, Gotabaya Rajapaksa, Gammanpila, Wimal Weerawansa, Dinesh etc…,
    I have noticed you have always critcised Mahinda Rajapakasa, that way you indirectly support Ranil-Maithree Jarapalanaya axis. Right now in Sri Lanka, there are two possibilities in the balance, either destructive force of Ranil-Maithree Jarapalanaya, or country friendly constructive force of possible party chairing Mahinda or Gota. If you support anybody else that mean for years you are supporting the destructive force, for you it does not matter Sri Lanka and Sinhala nation be destroyed.
    I request Lankaweb not to publish Buddhist preaching as Dham did in a previous comment under political discussion, he must be using this to get the support from public that he can use to destroy later or use for his personal agenda.
    There are people in the world use something to get the popularity and sell that popularity to highest bidder whatever the outcome on to the people who gave the popularity to them, eg. Champika Ranawaka, Ratan Tera etc.
    Recently due to the service of Shardda TV I have learned lot of thing about the Buddhism. I am very greatful to that. I request this good doer to be vigilant, Evil doers the hidden hand can do things that could destroy this good service.
    I will give you a good example things that is done by this evil doers through their aids, in 1980s they have managed to include “ ManuThapaya” in GCSE curriculum, It is a very good story, I like it, but what is that story about, it is the best story related to the Christianity – for the purpose conversion to Christianity. In Buddhist culture there are much better stories than this that is much suitable for our curriculum. This will show you how hidden hand is working. Be vigilant!

  7. Dham Says:

    You too should listen to the monk’s Deshana in the link I have given above.
    I don’t have any agenda, but you appears to have one but that dose not bother me.

    Lankaweb has been a great place for all to express ideas for a long time. Have you read my comments 7 years ago ?
    Nevertheless as a person who read ALL my comments, may I request you to give Lankaweb the reason why you think I am writing with a hidden agenda and please disclose that agenda.

    The only reason you have given is,
    “I have noticed you have always critcised Mahinda Rajapakasa, that way you indirectly support Ranil-Maithree Jarapalanaya axis. Right now in Sri Lanka, there are two possibilities in the balance, either destructive force of Ranil-Maithree Jarapalanaya, or country friendly constructive force of possible party chairing Mahinda or Gota. If you support anybody else that mean for years you are supporting the destructive force, for you it does not matter Sri Lanka and Sinhala nation be destroyed.”.

    This means if the “Mahinda” or “Gota” did any WRONG ACTION we should not criticise them , even if that action was “destructive” for the country ( for example letting Elam Council born with Wigneshwarn as head or Opening of Jassim City). Tell me what is the “constructive” element of those actions then.

    You also mentioned that supporting anyone else is supporting a destructive force. What kind of nonsense is this ? Are you a 20 years old kid ?

    Many Sri Lankans are gravely concerned about the TNA proposal to partition Sri Lanka into four pieces with a huge chunk (28% of the land area, 66% of the coastline and 66% of the ocean comprising the North and the East of Sri Lanka) going to the TNA racists and separatists as a merged North East federal state (but craftily disguised as ‘unitary’) with full powers.

    We are wondering why did over 43,000 both Sri Lankan Forces and civilians die at the hands of the LTTE and that megalomaniac Prabhakaran, if now, the TNA is being handed over an ‘Eelam’ so easily constitutionally?

    When looking at a GIS Map of Sri Lanka, it is amply clear that most of the forested areas of Sri Lanka are situated in the North and the East. Do not these forests belong to all the citizens of Sri Lanka? Do not the same principle apply to the ocean too or even the whole island, that the oceans and the whole island belong to all the people of Sri Lanka? Mr. Vigneshwaran has ‘created’ a fake history (stating that Tamils lived in Sri Lanka for 2000 years). Yet, there are no ancient ruins in Jaffna, in the North nor any ancient Dravidian writing to prove these fake claims. History of the Tamils commence mainly with the Dutch and the British bringing in large numbers of people from Tamil Nadu to work in tobacco plantations commenced by the Dutch and the British. There was the so called Jaffna Kingdom set up by an invader just prior to that but then Jaffna was only very sparsely populated. Our question is, can people such as Mr. Vigneshwaran ‘create’ his own fake history like this? He is ignoring the many Buddhist ruins, the many ancient Buddha statues, ancient Sinhala prakrit writing, the many ancient irrigation reservoirs built by Sinhala kings in the North and the East which proves an earlier indigenous Sinhala habitation in the North and all over the island. We would like to tell Mr. Vigneshwaran to be objective when it comes to history and archaeology and accept once and for all the fact that the Sinhala people lived all over the island for thousands of years and continue to do so. I would like Mr. Vigneshwaran to note that the provincial boundaries were drawn up by British colonialists for their administrative purposes with no input whatsoever from the Sinhala people and does not tally at all with the earlier history of the island which was unitary in nature.

    The Kandyan Kingdom (1400AD-1815) comprised almost all of the island inclusive of the East and almost all of the North. The earlier Kingdom of Rajarata (600BC-1400 AD) comprised the North Central, North Western, Northern and Eastern Provinces or the dry zone of Sri Lanka.

    We are gravely concerned regarding the drawing up of a new constitution where due to the pressure of the TNA, the US, EU, UK, Canada, Norway, Sri Lanka is in grave danger of being divided up on ethnic lines into four, five or even six different pieces. Is this not crazy?

    The TNA proposals were drawn up by experts which the TNA hired from the UK, Canada, Belgium, Canada, US and the like. Is this not an interference in Sri Lanka’s internal affairs by foreign powers, even to the extent of trying to draw up Sri Lanka’s constitution?

    Can any organization in Sri Lanka go to the supreme court and stop, once and for all, the merger of the North and the East since it is critical to stop this once and for all? Can any organization in Sri Lanka also go to the supreme court and stop, once and for all the, dividing up of this small island on ethnic or any other lines?

    The only way to stop this madness is to go to the supreme court and get a verdict which would prohibit the merger of any provinces and to stop once and for all the dismemberment of this small island on ethnic or any other lines.

    It is ONLY when Lankans addresse the Root Cause of the so called Tamil Problem that the Tamil Problem will be solved, not in Lanka, but in Tamil Nadu.
