Speakers at the Mu’l’livaaykkaal Remembrance meeting in Chennai, Tamil Nadu on Friday came down strongly on the Indian and Western establishments for their complicity in the genocidal war on the Eezham Tamil nation. While veteran Tamil nationalist activist Pazha. Nedumaran condemned the holding of CHOGM in Sri Lanka, MDMK leader Vaiko criticized India’s contribution to the genocide of the Eezham Tamils from the IPKF days to the present. Periyarite leader Kolathur Mani spoke extensively about the structural genocide under unitary Sri Lanka. Criticising the complicity of the International Community of Establishments, Thirumurugan Gandhi from the May 17 Movement stated that the role of the US and India in the war on the Tamils must also be probed.
The event in Purasawakkam, Chennai was organized by the MDMK.
Mr. Nedumaran, condemning the decision to hold CHOGM at Sri Lanka, was of the opinion that India played a major role in ensuring that Sri Lanka was made the venue. Further, noting Britain’s historic role in laying the framework for the conflict in the island, he urged the British Prime Minister to reconsider his decision to visit Sri Lanka.
MDMK leader Vaiko, criticising India’s support to Sri Lanka, urged for the intensification for the campaign for a referendum among the Eezham Tamils.
Complementing him, Thirumurugan Gandhi from the May 17 Movement said that Tamil Eelam is a front for Tamils world over and that the Tamil Nadu people must consistently push the referendum campaign.
Condemning the role of India, US and the UN in the genocide of the Eezham Tamil nation, he further called for an international investigation in the role of the external powers in the internationally abetted genocidal war.
Furthering criticising the efforts of sections in the west to portray the conflict as a war crime of both sides, Mr. Gandhi questioned why such intellectuals, writers and organizations do not question the crimes of all sides.
