SL military machinates caste, anti-diaspora violence in Jaffna villages

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 2 April 2013 09:46 No Comment]

An SL Military intelligence backed attack that took place in a Marriage Hall at Aavarangkaal in Puththoor, Jaffna, on last Wednesday and Thursday, shows to what extent the occupying Sinhala military has determined to engineer caste and anti-diaspora violence in select rural areas of Jaffna Peninsula to ultimately make Eezham Tamils weakened as a nation in the island, news sources in Jaffna said. The Marriage Hall that was preparing for a marriage function and its manager who is a retired Village Officer, were brutally attacked by a gang of youth organized by the occupying Sinhala military and its collaborators in Jaffna. The reason for the attack is said to be a publication coming from the diaspora in the UK that was stocked at the Marriage Hall for release. The publication was interpreted as a talk on caste and false accusation against SL military.

The Aavarang-kaal village association in the UK has recently published a book in Tamil, titled “Aavarangkaal the Siva Bhomi in the 20th Century.”

The book, written by a retired school principal coming from the village and now living in the UK, was historically documenting communities that inhabited the village in the last century and their professions. The book was also documenting the killings of the Sinhala military that took place at the village.

The intelligence of the occupying Sinhala military organized some youth to interpret the book as talking about caste and carried out the attack on the Marriage Hall where the book was stocked for release. The copies of the book were also burnt during the attack.

The attack was carried out on Wednesday evening and again on Thursday, when the hall was being arranged for a wedding function.

The Marriage Hall management was accused for distributing the book. The attackers also ransacked arrangements that had been set for the marriage function at the hall called Sivashakthi Ma’nimandapam.

Media sources have witnessed the attack being instigated by the Sinhala military intelligence.

The Aavarangkaal association in the UK is engaged in various social and development activities in the village. Some members of the association have long connections with parliamentary democratic shade of Tamil national politics.

The aim of the present attack by the occupying military is multifaceted, ranging from reintroducing caste animosities to disrupting the diaspora’s engagements with the village through temples and Marriage Halls, media sources that personally witnessed the nature of the attack said.

The attack campaign in which paramilitary collaborators of the Sinhala military and Dan TV played roles, marks the extent the occupying Sinhala military has gone in engineering national and social disintegration among Tamils, the news sources commented.

The Aavarangkaal-Puththoor region is one of the localities of the Jaffna Peninsula that is particularly targeted by genocidal Sri Lanka and by its occupying military, in converting Tamils into Buddhists.

While a new genre ideological outlook, involvement and activities are needed in democratically mobilising the masses facing global imperialist games, sections in the diaspora in the West chickening out from such a polity that it would offend the West and harping on tracing steps back to the electoral deceit of the Establishments, is also a reason for the gullible among the struggle-needing youth getting manipulated by the genocidal Sinhala military, the news sources in Jaffna further commented.

Left circles in Jaffna confirmed that they had nothing to do with the incident and they never collaborate in such mischievous acts carried out by the SL military.

Meanwhile, writing on the incident in the Sinhala military’s website, on last Friday, Sayuri Anusara Madduma Liyanage, who is an intelligence officer of the occupying military said: “ […] Civilians in the area who opposed the “Avarangal Onriam” – based anti social campaign had claimed that the false information in the book directly affect the peaceful environment prevailing in the area and invite terrorism again. They further launched a protest saying that security forces as mentioned in the book, are not involved in killings or abductions in the area.”

“[…] Irate civilians …warned the members of so called “Avarangal Onriam” that they would face bad repercussions if they try to organize that type of campaigns again,” the Sinhala military intelligence officer hinted at what the occupying military would do for the diaspora engaging with its kith and kin.

The Sinhala military intelligence officer has circulated his news version to various agencies and psyops outfits of the occupying SL military.
