Has World Factbook recognized Tamil Eelam ?

[b]Has World Factbook recognized Tamil Eelam ?[/b]

Regarding the population of the Tamils in Sri Lanka, “Asian Tribune” carried a news item based on a recent information in the World Factbook, which revealed that Tamils in Sri Lanka presently constitute only 3.9% of the total population of the country.

This revelation has created jitters in the midst of the readership and it is a mystery how Tamils who were supposed to be around 12 % suddenly dropped to 3.9%.

This may be due to the exodus of Tamils to foreign countries and may be also due to the “Pol Pot style Killing Spree” sickly adopted and continued with impunity by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam – the rebel outfit, which is involved in creating a separate state purely for the Tamils in Sri Lanka.

In the meantime S. Santhirasegara of Canada writes about the latest issue about the population of the Tamils in Sri Lanka, as recorded in the World Factbook.

The full text of Santirasegera’s letter is given below:
