Australian Opposition Supports Tamil Eelam?
‘Tamil Refuges and the situation in Sri Lanka - Senator the Hon. Kristina Keneally - Deputy Labor Leader in the Senate, Shadow Minister for - Home Affairs, Immigration and Citizenship and Government Accountability’ – said the introductory note to the September 2021 meeting of Consortium of Tamil Associations, held via Zoom – yesterday.
The meeting began with paying our respects to the victims of Sri Lankan war, followed by special tribute to LTTE’s Thileepan who is presented by Wikipedia as follows:
In addition to the above, the following facts are important in getting to the root of this:
1. The Indo-Sri Lanka Peace Accord was signed on 29 July 1987.
2. The Pondi Bazzar Shootout in 1982 and India’s stand on this
That was on the 27th Anniversary of the Pondi Bazzar shootout on foreign soil.
As a Hindu, I believe in the way of Karma. As a democratic citizen, I believe that as juniors in a relationship – we have the right to Oppose as per our Belief – which is an exponential power and like Corona Virus – has its own mind. Hence yesterday, I paid my respects to those who died in the war – but was passive in the case of Thileepan. Hence when I go into what happened to Thileepan through my own experience as a Tamil – the facts I produce are – through my Affidavit are:
1. Thileepan was already wounded in May 1987
2. Majority Jaffna Tamils rejected LTTE and other armed groups.
[Reasons -When Thileepan was made the LTTE's political leader for Jaffna peninsula – it was an Opposition position representing armed leadership – like the current government of Sri Lanka. As per my belief such a move would have brought the LTTE demotion in politics. ]
When Senator Kristina Keneally - spoke yesterday, the identity with the essence of the above that the group represented – was missing. Senator Keneally spoke as the candidate for Fowler in the upcoming elections. This was followed by her expressions of support for the Biola family that has difficulties with immigration. Fowler being a strong migrant electorate – with high percentage of first generation Australians - Senator Kristina Keneally needed to demonstrate identity with experience of those migrants so they would integrate with Australian values and heal themselves. Instead, in effect, the lady supported Tamil Eelam Separation which was rejected by Indian leadership.
Now that Australian government is developing Nuclear power which is indicated to be to oppose China in South China Sea, developing relationships that are likely to be in favour of China and against India – does not make sense. Unresolved governance issues beyond their effective time are nuclear powers.
