A Dedication To EPDP's Balanadaraja Iyer Whose Assassination Raises Many Questions?

In these troubled times in Sri Lanka out of the ashes of man inflicted tragedy there arise even in death, giants of phoenixes never vanquished by virtue of the sacrifice they have made, the ultimate one and one such has to be EPDP's Mr.Balanadaraja Iyer. ( Sinna Bala) gunned down in Colombo on his way to work recently.

Although there are many speculations about the heinous low life sources responsible for this dastardly deed, the foremost which comes to mind based on the intelligence reports stemming from carefully made investigations, has been confirmed as the LTTE whose time for atonement will surely follow.There is an established pattern of similarity to this wretched criminal act with the recent unsuccesful attempt on the life of EPDP Leader Mr Devanandan although the LTTE have not openly claimed responsibility.

Looking back at the many attempts on the lives of dignitaries, leaders and prominent personalities whether successfully or not, the terrorist element has prevailed in the destruction of families and the disruption of the normal order of life within Sri Lanka to an intolerable point ant it is surely time appropriate for definitive action towards eliminating the problem where the Authorities are obliged to respond swiftly and effectively without compromise!

It is a time appropriate for the highest level of Administration together with the Law Enforcement Agencies and the Armed Forces of Sri Lanka to enter the arena of public security with greater intent and conscientiousness and through every means and resources available ensure the safety of innocent lives whether they be in urban, suburban or rural areas as the LTTE have overstepped their limitations beyond measure or entitlement and infiltrated populated areas where regardless of their internecine problems which they now use as a license to kill, they need seeking out, flushing out and removal wherever necessary and should not be permitted to hide behind the convenient mantle of the Peace Process and Ceasefire which they have violated from the very inception and continue with gay abandon!

Notwithstanding the peaceloving Tamil Community of Sri Lanka who have every right to recognition, respect and tolerance as part of Sri Lankas multicultural mosaic, the LTTE need to be considered vermin that needs to be eliminated and wiped off the face of Sri Lanka and disposed of as one would a load of garbage which is not only offensive but foul and mendacious in presentation and of a perspective dangerous towards the well being of all of Sri Lankas populace.These are not individuals who can be negotiated with or bartered with, they are ruthless indiscriminate killers who have not changed their attitude and are not expected to despite their opportunistic rhetoric and the sooner any Administration and Status Quo at the helm of Sri Lanka accepts this as a truism the better off they would be towards the execution of their mandated powers and the vindication of deaths such as that of Mr Balanadaraja Iyer in a Nation which keeps asking"How Long Can This Go On?."

To be courageously outspoken against any entity and to be brutally murdered for it is an apathetic reflection of the state of affairs Sri Lanka is embroiled in today and a frightening sign of the times, of the mentalities of those who perpetrate such crimes and claim to belong to the human race with its humanities and compassion while demanding recognition which has but taken on a flavour of poisonous hatred and blood lust and can only project such individuals to the depths of damnation and smear them with the guilt of the innocent blood where the anguish of the innocent children and needlessly widowed wife robbed of a loving father and husband respectively reflects an overwhelming need for justice to be meted out appropriatelty with perhaps the ultimate punishment as a prime consideration.

Criminalities of this nature deserve no thought towards rehabilitation or mercy of the perpetrators as names of other noble martyrs in the Tamil Community such as Mr.NeelanTiruchelvam , BBC Correspondent Mr.Mylvaganam, Fomer Mayor of Jaffna Mr Alfred Duraiappa and so many others in various walks of life and communities gunned down or brutally murdered in the prime of their lives in the execution of their duties and as the sad entreaty of the family of Mr Balanadaraja Iyer reaches out to this most compassionate people of our beautiful land of which a famous English literary personality once wrote "where only man is vile In Ceylon's Resplendent Isle!", we as Lankans must unite to condemn and villify the LTTE as a degenerate source of evil. In reality the axis of evil within Sri Lanka!

We the citizens of Sri Lanka should pay homage and obeisance to this brave compatriot of ours who has fallen by the wayside, someone who had a dream as did the Rev.Martin Luther King Jr. , Abraham Lincoln, John and Robert F.Kennedy and so many othe matyrs felled by an assassins bullet whose names and deeds come to mind as history unravels and are etched in stone for eternity at the highest level of self sacrifice for the betterment of the human race and for their outspokenness.

We must also be conscious that such attrocities are a direct result of the neglect of those in Administrative Authority whether past ot present that has unleashed the once muzzled and caged predators obsessed with killer instinct who parade under a banner of proscribed terrorism, giving them undue rights and recognitions while baring the way towards free access into previously secured areas of Sri Lanka.They have done the Nation of Sri Lanka no big favour in the name of Peace through worthless rhetoric and the interference of spineless peace negotiators from foreign lands.Perhaps the task of removing them may be a daunting one but nevertheless a mandatory one.

Permitting the LTTE any further legality and tolerance as the death toll of innocent civilians outspoken in their views and resolute in their political affiliations mounts due to their attrocities, would be a travesty of justice and a mockery of the concept of democracy and the freedoms of the Free World.

Heartfelt Condolences go out to the family and loved ones of Mr.Balanadaraja Iyer whose life must be celebrated and his dedications recognized as belonging to a righteous man and a proud son of Sri Lanka.
May His Soul Find Eternal Peace
