Diaspora’s Contribution to War & Peace
While some of us doing all we could to save unjust loss of lives in Indonesia through Death Penalty – some of us received copies of communication between A senior and a junior within the UK Tamil Diaspora. I wrote back to urge the junior to not express emotionally on Sri Lankan Politics unless she was a Sri Lankan voter. The young member of the Tamil Diaspora wrote:
‘TAMILS BE AWARE OF THOSE DEADLIEST POISONOUS TAMIL TRAITORS WHO BORN TO UNKNOWN ETHNIC GROUP OF BARBARIAN SRILANKAN COMMUNITY THUGS COMING OUT FROM THEIR SNAKE DEN. THESE NASTY EVIL TAMIL TRAITORS WORKING FOR THE GENOCIDAL WORLD POWERS TO WASH THEIR FAMILIES BELLIES WHICH TRAITORS WELL FUNDED BY THE GENOCIDAL INDIAN / SRILANKAN COMMUNITY THUGS.
NOW THESE BORN TO UGLY THUGS COULDN'T ABLE TO FACE THE GENUINE TAMILEELAM PEOPLE / THAMILNAADU / GLOBAL TAMIL ORGANISATIONS AND THEIR GENUINE TAMIL NATIONAL MEMBERS. NOW THESE NASTY TRAITORS WHO BORN TO GENOCIDAL COMMUNITY FATHERS FACING THE POWER OF JAFFNA UNIVERSITY / THE NORTH EAST OF TAMIL CIVIL SOCIETY / THE GENUINE NORTHERN PROVINCIAL COUNCIL TAMIL NATIONAL MEMBERS / THE GENUINE TNPF POLITICAL PARTY WHICH PARTY MEMBERS AND THE THE GENUINE NORTHERN PROVINCIAL COUNCIL MEMBERS / TAMIL CIVIL SOCIETY MEMBERS / JAFFNA UNIVERSITY GOING TO REPLACE ALL DEADLIEST TNA PARLIAMENTARIAN SEATS IN COMING PARLIAMENTARIAN SEATS.
TAMILEELAM MEMBERS GOING TO SHOW THEIR POWERFUL LESSONS TO THOSE UGLY TAMIL TRAITORS IN COMING PARLIAMENTARIAN ELECTION AND THESE THUGS GOING TO RUN AWAY FROM TAMILEELAM LAND WHICH PEOPLE SHOWING THEIR POWER BY REMOVING THEIR POISONOUS WEEDS WHICH BORN TO MANY GROUP OF GENOCIDAL COMMUNITY THUGS IN THE PADDY FIELD.’
The above came at a time when the Chief Minister of Northern Province made the declaration that Sri Lanka was one country with two nations. That was is like saying that a family was headed by One Husband and Two Wives – a good example being Lord Muruga – the Presiding Deity of Tamils. The only reason why this would be the case is where our Commonness is weaker than our Diversity. Simply described – Theivanai represents Rights based relationship and Valli Outcome based relationship. If former is Cause the latter is Effects. Likewise within the Tamil Community of Sri Lanka we have both – those driven by Cause and those driven by Effects. The above junior is Effects driven and the senior is Cause driven. Universities that trade in knowledge eventually produce Effects driven juniors. University of Jaffna has become one such University – and to my mind the LTTE influence is a strong contributing factor.
LTTE within the leading Tamil Political party – the TNA (Tamil National Alliance) is strongly Effects based. They would want to ‘show’ outcomes and towards this they cannot identify with high goals such as ‘Nation’ within a Country. Part of the reason why this happens is that many of our ‘seniors’ have become ‘effects driven’ in the new countries they have migrated to. As per today’s Australian news:
‘A man known as 'Britain's white jihadi' has been unmasked as an Australian teenager from Melbourne. According to Fairfax, 18-year-old 'Jake' is the baby-faced young man pictured with armed extremists online late last year. Islamic State terrorists had declared recruiting the teenager a 'major coup'. It was initially thought Jake was a UK citizen, but new information has revealed the teen was originally from Craigieburn. The teen reportedly dropped out of school after converting to Islam, buying a one-way ticket to join up with terrorists in the Middle East’
Every individual has the right to join any group of her/his choice. But where the group claims to stand for sovereignty – it has the responsibility to not attack except in defence in its own areas. Unless a group is ‘elected’ by the community / society that it claims to represent – it has to have strict demarcations between the Cause driven membership and Effects driven membership. The LTTE thus ought to have stayed within its own area and not entered into politics.
In Hindu philosophy – there are the gods and there are the Asuras – Physically strong groups. In terms of Sri Lanka – the King of Lanka – Ravana was an Asura. He was great – but went outside his kingdom to disturb members of the Higher thinking groups – like the LTTE dictating to the investors in Higher Education. Rama – the incarnation of Lord Vishnu – was great as well as good and hence Rama was the Causal force to eliminate Ravana. We need the good in addition to the great to eliminate Ravanas in our society.
The more we seek to ‘show’ the less we own and hence the weaker the Causal force. It is for this reason that Lord Krishna says to Prince Arjuna to fight as his duty and not be affected by the Effects. Where the Tamil Community of Northern Sri Lanka seeks to be self-governing – it needs to first separate the Causal forces from the Effects driven forces – the Brain and the Brawn. Both are empowered by Truth but once one goes into the other – separation is absent and we have dismissals of the brain / judiciary by the brawn / armed forces – as happened to a Chief Justice in Sri Lankan during the reign of the Brawn. Effects driven people need to BELIEVE in at least one Cause / Rights driven person – to feel motivated to work and earn their living.
It will be such a shame if LTTE supporters enter the world of politics without any higher thought structure or belief in senior politicians – and destroy the investment made by all of us in Higher Education and Higher thinking. This infiltration of Effects driven forces into our leadership is our internal enemy. They must be separated and facilitated to remain within their own areas. TNA thus can have two wives – one policy based and the other action based. But the two must not be on the same side of the Leader. If that leader is Mr. Wigneswaran at the Provincial level – it was inappropriate to make statements on behalf of all Tamils of Sri Lanka and to the President of Sri Lanka who as per the structure is above Mr. Wigneswaran in position. A Cause/Rights driven leader would not say this for it damages our own investment in higher structures that facilitate all investors and not just those close to ourselves. Effects driven leaders become lost when they cross the physical boundaries of their local territories. They tend to end up damaging the very system that drives motivation of its members to produce outcomes.
