Kanthar Balanathan,

HE Mr Donald Trump
The President of the USA
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

His Excellency the President,


Sir, I am a supporter of your excellency, and continue to be supportive on various topics on a multiple dimensional perspective. On the question of Mexicans we SriLankans support your ideas whole heartedly. The question of influx of illegal migrants should be addressed. Purely because those who crawl into US are mostly uneducated, with no skill, no expertise, and no job orientation. Only performance they are competent is drug & human trafficking, smuggling and all illegal activities that will generate millions of dollars income to their personal coffer.

I am a Tamil SriLankan Australian, although I prefer to identify me as an Australian. It has befallen necessary to write this letter to the White House, as an appeal, after reading the various political divergences of the Tamil Diaspora in the US & Canada particularly, and how they are attempting to intrude and pollute the minds of the administration to portray as if Tamils in SriLanka are being subjected to discrimination and human rights violation.

I am a very senior person who has worked in the UK, SriLanka, Nigeria, Zimbabwe, New Zealand & Australia. I have quite comprehended Tamils’ pugnacious behaviour on a socio-economic & political perspective. As Tamils, majority of us lack knowledge in listening skills & Conflict Resolution, and always resort to man handling opponents, killing or engage in subversive activities. Majority of us have a narrow mind with thoughts generated, as if we live in a fish bowl.

My experience drives me to assent that Expertise + Reliability + Flexibility = Capability” (E+R+F=C). The general perception is that Intelligence is to understand with pure reasoning. I quite doubt on how Tamils & Diaspora interpret this formula to understand with pure reasoning to achieve a high level of IQ.

SriLankan Diaspora then and now

Tamils in the US formed two associations called, Tamils for Obama” and Tamils for Clinton” when Obama and Clinton were contesting for the Presidency. They supported both candidates so that no matter who was elected they would be able to get their dirty work done through either one. The Tamil diaspora in Canada attempted to canvass Oprah Winfrey’s support by organizing Walk for Oprah” (http://sandeshaya-canada.blogspot.com.au/2009/04/oprah-winfrey-says-no.html) from Canada to US and appear on her Show to appeal to the US public.

During the current (past) election, Tamils again supported Hillary Clinton via their Facebook page; (https://www.facebook.com/Tamilsforhillary/) Tamils for Clinton”. In Sri Lanka they even held religious ceremonies to invoke celestial blessings on their favourite candidate Hillary. It is clear that the Tamil diaspora in the US had millions of dollars accrued from the LTTE funds to be spent on their favourite candidates. All LTTE operatives are now millionaires. FBI should investigate in US and Canada.

Now media claims that Tamils have formed an org called; Tamils for Trump”. I am sure these orgs cannot mislead the head of the USA, because you are a patriot who believe in remoulding USA and not any other countries.

Truth of SriLankan Affairs

Excellency; I do not wish to acme historical facts in detail, but briefly affirm who the victims in SriLanka were and are over centuries. I have published three books on SriLankan politics and history.

SriLanka, the island of paradise, was a Sinhala speaking Buddhist country since 5 BC. Invasions by the Indian non Tamil kingdoms and the Southern Kingdoms befell over several centuries. These invasions resulted in the massacre & carnage of several hundreds of thousands of Sinhalese people over several centuries. These invasions ended with the invaders looting and plundering the assets of the locals, and get back to India.

In the 14th century a rowdy called, Megha” crawled into the North and established a settlement in Jaffna. N&E settled non-Tamil speaking, Malabar, Karnataka, Marathi, Javanese, Telugus & other minor ethnic groups from India and Java. As Tamil in South India was a link language, those who settled in the N&E spoke Tamil. Today, majority of congenitally imbeciles (Tamils), view that they have been Tamils over thousands of centuries in a country called Elam. The White House historians would agree that Elam” empire was a country/region in the then Persia”, which is now Iran. (Ref: http://www.cais-soas.com/CAIS/History/Elamite/elam_history.htm). History states that several races invaded the Indus Valley and India, some invaded South East Asia (Indochina), while others invaded the South of India. Ref: http://www.gloriousindia.com/history/ancient_history.html.

The sequence of episodes within the Tamil political discords gave directions to politician, SJV Chelvanayagam starting the racial thrust by forming a federal party, notion on Tamil nation, and phrasing his political party to carry a different meaning to convince the Tamils. It is speculated that his actions were as a result of refusal of a ministerial portfolio in the then government.

70 million Tamils live in Tamil Nadu which is part of India. Tamil population in SriLanka was less than 11% in the 50s. The minority Tamils in SriLanka are living with a majority complex just because of the 70 million Tamils in India. However, up to the 20th century, Labourers from Tamil Nadu, and Andra kept on sneaking into the North. My dad was a Police Inspector (OIC) in the North and he was working with a military unit knows as TFAII”, (Task Force for Anti Illicit Immigration) in the 50s. (Quote ref: https://thecarthaginiansolution.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/sri-lankas-military-the-search-for-a-mission-2004-blodgett.pdf.

SriLanka cannot build a wall between India and SL because the two countries are separated by sea. Ie the Palk Strait. This made it easy for the Indians to sneak into SL.

As a patriotic American President, Sir, you will understand the psychological trauma experienced by the military, Navy, police and the citizens of SL. The victims of SriLanka are the Sinhalese community.

Further, Tamils are in every country in Europe, Americas, and SE Asia. They are not political refugees, but, economic refugees (ER). Literates will agree that these ER are better off overseas than in SL because of the living conditions. Once they get permanent residence, they change their names; however, there is a possibility that they become missing persons in SL.

Hence in my view, Tamils could be paralleled to the Mexicans of the USA.

Majority of these illegal migrants are uneducated, coolies, labourers and may be drug traffickers and smugglers. Current situation is that the illegal entry has been brought to zero, however, our PM, Mr Ranil Wickramasinghe, is attempting to bring Indians via legal route, an agreement called ETCA”. India is a large country where space could be developed with its natural resources; however, SL is a small island struggling to feed its own people.

Whatever Tamil Diaspora claims, we Tamils are illegal migrants into the island since the 14th century. May be Tamil language is old as 4000 years, however, the language is not old as 4000 years in SL and was not spoken in SL, but in India, Persia, Sumerian and Africa. We Tamils should understand this truth and agree, not boast, and enter in to arguments.

Appended below is a schedule of the population distribution in SL in 2011.

With a total population of 20,263,723, the Sinhalese people; 15,173,820, SriLanka Tamils; 2,270,924 and the Indian Tamils; 842,323. On a percentage basis, Sinhalese strength is 74.88%, SL Tamils 11.21%, and Indian Tamils 4.16%.

If the Hill country (Tea-growing area) Tamils are merged with the Tamils from the Northern and Eastern Provinces as a Tamil entity, the percentage of Tamils living outside the North and East is 49 %. This means that only 51% live in the North & East.

Population Distribution in SriLanka

Only 993,741 live in the North. Sir, do we really think that this population need a separate administration. Will that be economically and politically a good attempt to govern in the small country which begs for aid and grants from the west.

If the Mexicans fight for a separate administration in the US, will the president and the US government be happy to oblige?

Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam

The leader of LTTE Vellupillai Prabakaran (VP) is an eighth standard educated person with absolute zero level knowledge in the areas of social science, political science, economics, & political economics. He hails from a town where majority were involved in smuggling for living. It cannot be debated and disagreed that, initially; India gave the support and trained these LTTE & other terrorists on Indian soil. The LTTE was based in Indira-Nagar, Madras supported by the late Chief Minister MG Ramachandran.

In this context, India should be sturdily liable for wrenching SriLanka into their international politics. None of the international world was interested in decreeing LTTE as a terrorist organisation. It is only after the 9/11, US declared LTTE as a terrorist organisation followed by others. Afghanistan and Iraq was invaded by Bush in the name of Al-Qaida and the WMD. Will US invade India for helping and aiding LTTE?

During the period 1995 – 2009, the 300,000+ Tamils in Vanni were only slave labour hobbled by the LTTE for their own advantage. No Tamil was able to get out of Vanni for fear of facing death. In May 2009, our then President freed the Tamils from bondage and since then Tamils want a peaceful living.

LTTE Associates

Those who were associated with the LTTE, Tamil Diaspora and those who illegally migrated have now formed several different organisations, congress and associations under the pretext of democratic societies/organisations.

It is worth to mention that Tamils have formed associations in each of the western countries.

The Tamil Co-ordinating Committee was a diaspora arm of the LTTE, who were directing subversive activities. Although LTTE was decreed as a terrorist organisation, the TCC was overlooked and TCC is still operating in most of the countries. If LTTE terrorism has to be eliminated fully, then those organisations which have LTTE associates or members should be banned to achieve positive results.

Transnational Government of Tamil Elam-TGTE

It is relevant to state at this juncture that Visvanathan Rudrakumaran was associated with VP and the LTTE. Evidence is the picture below.

Image 1:
           Mr Visvanathan Rudrakumaran, so called Prime Minister of fictitious Transnational Government of Tamil Elam with LTTE supremo Mr Vellupillai Prabakaran (Ref: http://www.allvoices.com/contributed-news/8543437/image/75769908-visivanathan-rudrakumaran-with-ltte-leader-prabakaran)

Image 2: Rudrakumaran (2nd from left) beside LTTE Supreme Commander Prabakaran                                              Image 1                                                      Image 2

His intellectual contribution to the US and the people is questionable. How does he earn his income for living? FBI should investigate into their financial transactions. How is it possible for him to have a cabinet and have several ministers? How are they paid?

Ref: http://thelionandsword.wordpress.com/tag/visvanathan-rudrakumaran/

TGTE is an illegal organisation and no one can dispute to proof that at least some members who supported or associates of the LTTE are within the TGTE group. TGTE is neither a community nor social organisation, but it hurls challenges to the sovereignty and integrity of a sovereign republic: SL.

I quote an article http://www.lankaweb.com/news/items/2013/01/13/security-forces-bust-tgte-tna-jsu-terrorist-plot/.

  • SriLanka is a small country with unique people and does not want to be dragged into international politics.
  • An appeal to US to support SL to be a republic, one nation, one country with Sinhalese, Tamils, Burgers and Muslims as members of the community.
  • Ban TGTE and the Global Tamil Forum.
  • Ban TCC.
  • Bring all those insurrectionary & destabilising terrorists hiding under fictitious names to justice.

TGTE, not only is wasting funds and posing a threat to harmony around the globe, but has created a precedence for other radicals around the world. Just an example: The White House cannot rule out the possibility, in time to come, of Indians/Mexicans creating a Transnational Government of Apache Land, in Canada or any other American countries.


It is to be complemented that every country has the right to defend & protect its territory and boarders from invasion by placing its troops at the border, and SriLanka is no exception.

Every SriLankan should have the right to live anywhere in SriLanka, and Tamils should not raise their voice and object, because it’s internal demographic movement of citizens. If Tamils can live in the South then Sinhalese people should have every right to live and work in the N&E. SriLanka has given equal rights to every citizen of SL. It’s not clear as to what the Tamils claim as equal rights. Tamils should join the governance and ask for a couple of ministerial portfolios, if Tamils are after power sharing. Tamils should not demand removal of Sinhalese from the North and east, because they have lived there for centuries and it’s our (SriLankans) country.

We love the United States and will always love and be pro-US.

Thank you Sir,

Kanthar P Balanathan

Population Distribution in SriLanka

    First of all, please don’t spoil Trump by calling him “his excellency”. He is not a king but someone elected by people, a servant of people.
    Secondly if you same Mexicans in USA are similar to Tamils of Sri lanka , it is an insult to Mexicans. I don’t think Mexicans are terrorists. Furthermore USA captured Mexican Nadu in a war. We did not capture Tamil nadu (yet).

  2. Lorenzo Says:


    Excellent analogy Kanthar anna!!!

    MEXICANS IN USA: Speak the same language as neighbouring Mexico
    TAMILS IN SL: Speak the same language as neighbouring Tamil Nadu, Endia


    MEXICANS IN USA: Many gun-running CRMINAL gangs
    TAMILS IN SL: Many gun-running CRMINAL gangs

    MEXICANS IN USA: Some of them are an unwanted minority in USA due to violence
    TAMILS IN SL: Some of them are an unwanted minority in USA due to violence

    USA be warned. IF Mexicans follow Tamils, they will soon demand a FEW US STATES for themselves!!

    That INCOMPETENT crooked Clinton and N-OBAMA encouraged Tamil terrorists despite USA banning them since 1991!!!

    – Another Tamil from Jaffna

  3. Lorenzo Says:

    Tamils in SL have EXPLOITED the mercy and GENEROCITY of “foolish” Singhalese.

    But at last the “foolish” Singhalese are coming to REALIZE.

    Americans have shown them the way!

  4. Sarath W Says:

    It not only Tamils of Sri Lanka who came from India, the Indians did that in Uganda, Kenya and Fiji what the Mexicans do in USA. They do not want to give any thing to their adopted countries, but grab every thing they can.

  5. Christie Says:

    Tamils of the island nation are Indian Colonial Parasites. Mexicans are mainly Hispanics and have no relationship to the Brits. Indian Colonial Parasites are the same all over the world like in Guyana.

  6. Fran Diaz Says:

    The sizes of the countries matter in taking in migrants !
    Sri Lanka is tiny compared to America.
    Sri Lanka : 25,000 sq miles
    America : 3.8 MILLION sq miles

    Basically, America can afford to be generous in taking in migrants from Mexico.
    But now Americans are losing JOBS to migrants, and therefore the protests.
    Excessive automation of tasks is also taking away jobs in America.
    Also, business folk taking away of American jobs abroad to cheaper sources.

    Tiny Sri Lanka cannot afford such generosity.
    They are losing their COUNTRY to illegal migrants from Tamil Nadu who are used by Tamil leaders to form a Separate State in Lanka.

    All PATRIOTS of Lanka, especially the Sinhala Buddhists who stand to lose their country, must unite to solve this problem and remove the ILLEGAL 13-A which is the most divisive piece of legislation imposed under DURESS by INDIA on the JRJ govt in 1987.

    Now, the Ranil led UNP which leads the Yahap govt wants to build a bridge to Tamil Nadu. They also want to lease out 5,000 acre lots on 99 yr leases to foreigners. Also bring in a new Constitution plus the ETCA ! All this spells the end of Lanka.

    Simply put, at present from the Tamil leaders side, Lanka is being surreptiously divided slowly but surely, using $$s by Tamil Diaspora for bribes, the Tamil Language and use of Cold War players, and INDIA.

    To be fair, quite a few American states originally belonged to the Spanish colonial empire such as California, Nevada, Texas and Florida etc. Some like Florida changed hands many times between various countries first Spain then England grabs Florida, then Spain grabs it back from England and finally the Americans grab it permanently from the Spanish. In places like Texas and California. Then the Americans grabbed these other states through warfare from the Spanish Empire such as Texas,California etc. It is here that the Mexicans who were given independence from spain thought Texas and California etc should go to Mexico because it belonged to Spain before. However the Americans weren’t going to relinquish their holdings. When the Mexicans tried to invade Texas and California the Americans through war kicked them out back to Mexico. Anyway it was wild west country back then. Later on as America developed. Americans turned the previous under developed backwaters such California, Texas and Florida into the some of the most prosperous areas in the Unitsed States. With high standard of living. Excellent climate and 1st world conditions. However Mexico continued to be a backwater. Later more and more Mexicans tried to get into the US and laying claim to US land even though it was the American people who built up those previous spanish colonies into very liveable states comapared to Mexico. In the last 25 years it has become a flood from Mexico as Mexico is nowhere as wealthy as the United States.

    Anyway point being there is some similarities with Sri Lanka. But the Mexico and US problem is a result of American, Spanish and British colonialism on land that previous belonged to native peoples.
    Quite a bit different to Sri Lanka as Sinhalese can lay claim as being the native peoples of Sri Lanka. Where as California, Texas, Florida etc technically doesn’t belong to the United States as the US through war with Mexico and spain grabbed those lands for the United States. If the Sinhalese decided to invade Tamil nadu then it would be a similar situation to what happened in the US. But in Sri Lanka its the other way around.
