The current situation and treatment of Tamils after the defeat of LTTE by GOSL is worst than those riots. Who knows how many product going to comeout.Wait and see. Time will tell .

Your article on this subject are really a very nice piece.
Lot of atrocities were committed to ethnic minorities in Sri Lanka.
As a Humanist,after reading untold minorities sufferings, i used to think ,why so many culture,so many races,so many religions,so many splits for good actions ,homeless,throwing out from their countries for no fault of them-all made me a sick person.
I hope that,here after,India!s neighboring Island citizens will live with good economic standard of living and with dignity.
Thanks to you for fearless writings.

Tamils, just put aside LTTE and the war for one moment, have been historically discriminated by the majority Sinhalese. In 1983 the then President Mr J R Jayawardena (a sinhalese) said “I don’t care about them (Tamils) or what they think. As long as I starve them out, the peopple of the South (Sinhalese) will be happy”. It is time for the Govt of Sri Lanka to prove otherwise. Claiming that the defeat of LTTE will resolve the problem and that all citizens of Sri Lanka are the same is just absurd. Letting the Tamils in the camps have full access to humanitarian aid and the rest of the world will be a good start to long road of reconciliation.

The difference is that the others did not try to falsify history to demand them.
What happens in Sri Lanka is the business of those who live there, and not those who aspire for free real estate from abroad.

Sri Lanka belongs to all Sri Lankans not to any community either majority or minority. Why are these tamils diaspora enjoying the western country benefits and fighting for there rights. Its better for all those tamil diaspora settle down in India and fight for Tamil Nadu as the separate country for the well being. Tamils will never get a separate homeland or separate state as we Sri Lankans will never bow down to those demands and do the unmost to destroy the homeland concept which is now all history with demolish of LTTE militarily and will not allow to riase their cause in the future
