Another open letter to New South Wales Member of Parliament

[b]Another open letter to New South Wales Member of Parliament Ms.Virginia Judge[/b]

[b]Toronto, 23 September, (Asiantribune.com):[/b] Another open letter to New South Wales Member of Parliament Ms. Virginia Judge from Mahinda Gunasekera, President of the Sri Lanka United National Association of Canada asking her to provide the location of a country called “Tamil Eelam” she had referred in the statement she made in the floor of New South Wales Parliament on 15 September, as she has recently visited that country.

“You speak of visiting ‘Tamil Eelam’ on your visit to Sri Lanka. Where on earth this place is called ‘Tamil Eelam?’” Mahinda Gunasekera asked in his letter.

Mahinda Gunasekera while concluding his open letter ended by wishing her “Good luck to you in gaining the respect of the Tamil Tiger and hopefully the votes of the 3000 Tamils in your electorate. May you be spared of the nightmares of the horrendous crimes committed by this group of terrorists whom your admire, or attempt to admire for the sake of some votes which are tied to your supporting their cause which has already cost over 65000 lives.

The full text of the letter written by Mahinda Gunasekera, President of the Sri Lanka United National Association of Canadais given below:

Ms. Virginia Judge
Member of Parliament for Strathfield
New South Wales, Australia

Dear Ms. Judge,

Re: Statement made in the New South Wales Parliament on September 15, 2005

Your recent visit to Sri Lanka at the urging of 3000 members of the Tamil community resident in your electorate explains the reasons for your obvious bias and inaccuracies contained in your statement. As a member of parliament, we would expect you to do your homework and have some background knowledge of the country that you are perhaps visiting for the first time, without uttering a whole lot of gibberish presented to you by one party to the conflict engaged in every form of violence and terrorism to advance their cause of carving out a mono-ethnic Tamil separate state in the north and east of Sri Lanka.
