The sensational news currently in the
Tamil Diaspora is at Pro LTTE group
disrupts TNA MPs Sumanthiran's & Shanakiyan's meeting in Canada (Video) -
It was expected after
the ‘Genocide declaration’ in Toronto under the leadership of Vijay Thanigasalam. It was still
upsetting due to the painful reality
that we are now a divided Tamil Diaspora.
morning I wrote in relation to a conflict between two Tamil professionals ‘I
agree that ‘victim complex’ is common to both genders. Out of the two I showed
Opposition to you but kept my distance from the less mature participant.’
a conflict through psychology requires ‘commonness’ in the mind of the analyser.
‘Victim’s complex’ carries the risk of
eventual self-demotion. Wikipedia presents the following in this regard:
Individuals may identify as a victim if they
they were harmed;
they were not the
cause of the occurrence of the harmful act;
they were under
no obligation to prevent the harm;
constituted an injustice in that it
violated their rights (if inflicted by a person), or they possessed qualities
(e.g., strength or goodness of character) making them persons whom that harm
did not befit;
Given Vaddukoddai Resolution 1976, which was a
political Resolution, we have no reason to claim that the pain and loss to
Tamils during the subsequent war years was not because of Tamil Opposition
also. Those who genuinely believe as per one or more of the above are
victims. But if as per one or more of these measures – their pain was due to ‘insiders’
rather than outsiders – then the relief needs to come from within. In the case
of Sri Lankan Tamils they have to be cured from within. If the ‘obligation to
prevent the harm’ is ignored – then whoever caused the pain and loss gets the
natural punishment which is often ‘demotion’.
If we relieved ourselves
through immigration, to nations that are more democratic than Sri Lanka, then we
have the responsibility to ensure we act in such a way as to not in anyway
damage that status of our new nations to uphold something from the past.
Migration is like rebirth and we have the responsibility to carry only the
truth from our Sri Lankan experience when operating as citizens of the new
nations. The Genocide claim was false in respect of Tamils who seek political
solution and not a military solution. Those who so claim are seeking a military
answer in the form of separation.
But the question is what rights
do Canadian Tamils have to directly take a stand in this issue? They have the
responsibility to act through Sri Lankan Tamils in Sri Lanka and have voting
rights. Majority Tamil voters confirmed through their participation in the
National Parliamentary elections that they sought a National solution and not
separate state. This as per my calculations is 75% of those eligible to vote. That
is the real Political solution which automatically rejects military solution
and therefore separatism.
As per the above report:
[Pro LTTE supporters disrupted a meeting attended by TNA MPs
M.A.Sumanthiran and Shanakiyan Rasamanickam on Saturday (20), demanding a
separate state for the Tamil people, and rejecting the Tamil party’s push for a
political settlement to Sri Lanka’s ethnic question.]
Sri Lanka’s North and East have overwhelmingly voted for a political solution.
They have categorically rejected separate Tamil state. Every Opposition by
belief is a naturally devolved power. I stated this recently when someone in
Thunaivi sought express approval from an officer. I stated that when we know the
law and apply it consciously we do not need specific approval for everything we
do. But we need to report regularly to that higher authority – so they would
decide and take action as per their own assessment of the value of our work.
To the extent we believe – and
express – we diffuse the forces as Opposition. Once we separate – we are outsiders
without the right to Oppose and diffuse. Canadian Tamils failed this test to
qualify as Opposition.
