Dr. Subramaniam Swamy 's Admonishments To India And Sri Lanka For Soft Pedalling With The LTTE, Praiseworthy!
Periscope - Global Sinhala Village For LankaWeb
It is indeed very gratifying and comforting for the true patriots in Sri Lanka to be aware of individuals such as Dr.Subramaniam Swamy, Janatha Party President and a former Indian Minister of Justice who has had the courage to stand up and blast the Governments of Sri Lanka and India for permitting the killings of Laksman Kadirgamar and Rajiv Gandhi go unpunished.
He urged that the killings have to be retaliated to in the very language the terrorists understand and food for thought surely for the law enforcement agencies of both countries to compensate even in some small measure for the losses even at this late stage by going after the terrorists with no holds barred.
It has become universally known now Sri Lankas Foreign Minister
Lakshman Kadirgamar was killed because he was perceived as a pro-India
and a Tamil who did not care for the threats of the LTTE and that Rajive
Gandhi too suffered a similar fate as he did not dance to the tunes
of covert LTTE approaches which he rejected and scorned upon.
Although the makings of apprehension seem to accompany Thamilselvam's
declaration which however is not a signal which the Authorities can
be placated with anymore if Dr. Swamy's words of wisdom have a greater
influence emphasizing the issue at hand that the terrorists have to
be responded to with their own language and the only one they are bound
to understand!! Not with olive branches or betel leaves!
The Government spokesperson has declared that despite the assassination
of Sri Lanka's Foreign Minister, peace talks with the LTTE will continue!.
Consequently Dr. Subramanian Swamy who was highly critical of this statement
has questioned with aplomb and in a clinically accurate manner laced
in sarcasm whether the Sri Lankans were suffering from "Stockholm
Disease" or the "Norway Stupor"?while reminding
the Sri Lankan Authorities that Dr. Kadiragamar was a Minister and a
Tamil, and yet the LTTE has killed him. He asked What kind
of Chamberlainian "peace at hand capitulation is the Sri
Lankan Government thinking of this time ?
Curiously, these two individuals, it must be noted, have dissapeared from LTTE public performances after the Tsunami! where a theatrical double for the former appears to have surfaced after lavish funeral ceremonies reserved for LTTE dignitaries were observed in Killinochch i and S.P Thamilselvam is now anchoring their propaganda desk!
Furthermore Dr. Subramanian Swamy has cast doubts on the reliability of the Sri Lanka towards the task where he has said compellingly that the capabilities of the Sri Lankan Government towards arresting Prabkaran where incompetent.
He has said that The Indian Government cannot rely on the Sri Lankan government to apprehend Prabhakaran and his gang, since Madame President and her Ministers are in a surrender mode. Dr. Swamy suggested, perhaps tongue in cheek despite its significance thatIndia must therefore consult Israel and the US, and send a commando team to search for these LTTE terrorists and bring them to justice. which despite the satire must bring to bear a degree of credibility towards its effectivity given the incapacities or hesitancies, whatever the case may be of the Sri Lankan authorities to go it alone!
The Nation of Sri Lanka while saluting Dr. Subramaniam Swamy must gain tremendous confidence from the courage of this outspoken Indian leader who has stated his case before a world audience which is unprepared to let international terrorism overcome freedom loving democracies and has perhaps sounded the death knell for the insignificant criminalities of the LTTE which have stirred further condemnation towards their continued existence! It is indeed a much needed shot in the arm for the flagging confidences of anyone who beleives that terrorism cannot be beaten!
