Judicial King  or Political Indian – Who is speaking?



This morning I received email advice regarding the release of Mr C V Wigneswaran’s book headed "Neethiyarasar Pesukiraar" / Judicial King Speaks.


My search took me to the Tamil version of a report on this subject matter. As per that report, Mr Wigneswaran refers to LTTE leader as Brother Prabhakaran.  Velupillai Prabhakaran was no doubt the Chief of Armed rebels in Northern Sri Lanka – towards which he killed fellow rebels. There was no justice in killing politicians – who are heirs of the elders who fought for self-determination through various  intellectual pathways.  Prabhakaran  was very much a child in intellectual politics and more importantly, in a community that claims to be committed to Democracy – including through the Vaddukoddai Resolution 1976. So, if Prabharan is the younger brother of Mr Wigneswaran – one concludes that Mr Wigneswaran is the chief of armed rebels. Given that they expressly broke the law – how could Mr Wigneswaran be crowned king of judiciary?


During the reign of such a king the following experience was recorded by me:







In essence it is about my experience in Mallakam District Court – where I was insulted and treated like a mistress. It compares with the trauma experienced by Hindu queen Paanchali / Throupathi who asked the question  in the King’s Court as to whether her husband staked her,  his lawful wife, before he lost his status in a game or whether he did so after? If after he did not have the right to stake his wife – who married royalty and not a slave. Likewise, when we the People, go into a Courthouse – we are entitled to be treated as per our positions and not as slaves without rights.


Since the above happened during the reign of  King Wigneswaran one is entitled to conclude that his karma in respecting self-governing women is negative. In terms of Common Principles of Democratic system – Mr Wigneswaran, like Mr Rajapaksa is acting in breach of the Doctrine of Separation of Powers between the Judiciary and the Executive Government. What a shame that there is not a single Tamil, holding official position – using her/his leadership position to educate the public? Our heritage is being buried by frivolous deals and collusions. Do we deserve to call ourselves a self-governing community at that level? NO. People seeking self-governance need to stay away from such persons. They are selfish individuals.


In my case Truth prevailed to protect our heritage in our family elders. Those of us who draw on the real values through which we experience self-governance in all its sweetness – are the true heirs of Independent Tamil Leaders – wherever they may live and whenever they may have lived.
