Ban "My daughter, the Terrorist" A Black Tiger Propaganda Movie from being Featured at the Film Festival, EROS Urges US

London, 02 April, (Asiantribune.com): Eelam Revolutionary Organization (EROS) has urged the United States Government to ban the “Black Tiger” documentary in the United States of America, as it was a blatant propaganda film glorifying suicide bombers and terrorism in Sri Lanka and would entice would-be suicide bombers to join terrorist organizations that are a threat to the interests of the United States.

Nesan Shankar Raji, a senior leader of the EROS in a statement said “My daughter the terrorist," a documentary on the lives and faiths of two female Black Tigers, produced by Norwegian film maker, Beate Arnestad, is to be featured in a premier documentary film festival in the United States to be held in Durham, North Carolina 4th of April.

He said that this is a propaganda film in favor of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), a banned terrorist organization in the E.U and many other countries including the United States of America and it clearly glorifies suicide bombing and terrorism. It has nothing to do with freedom of speech. This is blatant propaganda.

He added “This kind of media propaganda will have a devastating effect and will entice would-be suicide bombers to join terrorist linked organizations such as Al-Queda and other groups. There is clear evidence of the LTTE’s links in terrorist organizations linked to Al-Queda and the technology used in developing suicide bomb jackets etc is often shared between these terrorist organizations for their own mutual benefits.”

Full statement by Nesan Shankar Raji of EROS is as follows:
:
As one of the leaders of a mainstream, political party in Sri Lanka and a representative of peace loving Sri Lankan’s, I urge the United States Government to ban “My daughter the terrorist," a Black Tiger documentary, due to be screened in the United States and take appropriate measures to prevent the film being screened at the film festival to be held in Durham, North Carolina from 3rd to 6 April.

This documentary is a propaganda film in favor of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), a banned terrorist organization in the E.U and many other countries including the United States of America and it clearly glorifies suicide bombing and terrorism. This kind of media propaganda will have a devastating effect and will entice would-be suicide bombers to join terrorist linked organizations such as Al-Queda and other groups. There is clear evidence of the LTTE’s links in terrorist organizations linked to Al-Queda and the technology used in developing suicide bomb jackets etc is often shared between these terrorist organizations for their own mutual benefits.

The Norwegian film maker Beate Arnestad and architect of this documentary film has been on the payroll of both the LTTE and the Norwegian Government. The Norwegian Government has been responsible for funding the LTTE for several years. Referring to the “Norwegians Against Terrorism” - NAT website, there is ample evidence of the Norwegian Governments role in supporting, arming and funding the LTTE.

As the LTTE is proscribed as a terrorist organisation within the United States, the Government of the United States of America should ensure that this Norwegian filmmaker Beate Arnestad is prevented from screening this documentary publicly.

Beate Arnestad stayed in Vanni under the hospitality of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam during the filming of this documentary; secondly Black Tiger cadres of the LTTE were hand-picked by the Norwegian filmmaker to take part in this documentary.

This is clearly propaganda in favor of suicide bombing and killing many hundreds of innocent civilians. This documentary has nothing to do with free speech or media censorship. The United States Government has a moral duty in stopping this film from being screened and having it banned in the United States of America.
