Hon: Sirs,

FUND-RAISING EVENT UNDER THE GUISE OF "PONGU THAMIL”
ON SEPT. 25, IN CANADIAN SOIL BY FRONTLINERS OF THE
SRI LANKAN
LTTE-TERRORIST GROUP OPERATING IN CANADA

I wish to draw your kind attention to the subtle Terrorist schemes underway, by well known Canadian Tamil front liners of the Sri Lanka's belligerent terrorist outfit - Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) who, under the pretext of an on-going 'Peace Truce', are amassing weapons in preparation for war, having already brutally killed over 65,000 innocent people, including national leaders of all walks of life, as well as their own Tamil people who oppose them in their incessant barbarian activities, in a struggle to carve out a separate Tamil State by terrorism, for well over two decades.

The peace-loving Tamil Diaspora living in Canada has already pointed out the true intension of this subtle terrorist venture and has protested already to the Ontario's Prime Minister, the Mayor and the RCMP authorities, earnestly requesting their intervention to avert this event. It is clear that the very Tamil people firmly believe that in essence, this event amounts to inciting the feelings of the people to such an extent that it is bound to militate against any efforts at a peaceful solution to the Sri Lanka's terrorist problem. Terrorists want nothing but 'war' and 'destruction'.

These LTTE activists the world over, have spared no nerve in raising funds for the purchase of military hardware. During the past 2 to 3 years, they have secured over 11 shipments of arms and ammunition, as has been now accepted by their own leaders, who are now threatening the Sri Lankan Government with war, in their demand to establish a separate Tamil State, covering over two-thirds of the island and more than 3/4th of the ocean around. A large slice of such funds have been raised during "Pongu Thamil" celebrations, for which school children and their parents have been forced to participate and contribute, under intimidation and defenseless duress. In the wake of the freedom they have hitherto enjoyed in Canada, it is going to be repeated in many folds in the GTA, with the proposed "Pongu Thamil" on September 25, 2004.

Taking into consideration the vast Sri Lankan Tamil population living in the Greater Toronto Area who did migrate mostly as refugees, (resorted in order to save their dear lives from this Terrorist outfit, it is a proven fact that very large volumes of terrorism funds have been raised in Canada, with which the Killer- group has already amassed ship loads of weapons and is at the threshold of war against the lawful People's Democratic Sovereignty in the tiny island of Sri Lanka.

I do not wish to carry Coal to Newcastle by elaborating on LTTE atrocities committed, or re-iterating on Canada's failures of the past, against illegal activities of several Tamil Terrorist front-liners or their organizations, who were caught napping, with deadly weapons and fund-raising, with a view to perpetuate terrorist activities abroad and even here. It is no secret that Canada's RCMP and Security sections are well aware of those perpetrators and their activities, although the outcome was in favor of those terrorists, regrettably contrary to Canada's own Anti-terrorism Act, at a time when the world attention is focused against "World Terrorism" and Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) been exposed.

Hence, I earnestly request you to exercise the influence and powers vested in your good offices to BAN the upcoming "Pongu Thamil” event and exhibit Canada's sincere stand against the most brutal and barbaric Terrorist Group in the world - the LTTE, whose stooges are planning to accelerate their fund-raising activities under this name-board in Canada, whilst thriving on the humanitarian assistance of this great land.

Yours truly,
Ananda Wijesinghe
