A reality check for the separatist Tamils

[b]A reality check for the separatist Tamils[/b]

Asoka Weerasinghe of Canada pointed out: “As lately as this week Tamil Tigers gunned down two Jaffna School principals and let me repeat, the assassins were not Sinhalese, but Tamils. They were Jaffna College principal, 58-year-old K.Rajadurai, and the principal of Kopay Christian College, N. Sivakadasam, who rose against the conscription of children by the Tamil Tigers. If my prediction comes true, I hope the separatists Tamil Diaspora will not blame the Sinhalese for the dearth of Tamil teachers and principals in the Jaffna peninsula. That is a reality check for the separatist Tamils, who keep crying foul against the Sinhalese at every turn of a corner.

The full text of his letter is given below:

Editor,

Sir:

Oops….! I seem to have pinched a lot of Tamilians nerves with my responses to Makenthira’s thesis. I didn’t mean to. Well, on second thoughts, who the hell cares as long as my case is presented to your non-Sri Lankan readers to be judge and jury of this ethnic issue, as most of them have been taken for a ride by the separatist-Tamil

When the Tamils complained that there aren’t many Tamils in the Sri Lankan Police Force and the Army, I did respond saying that I don’t blame the Tamils not wanting to become police officers and commissioned soldiers as their community representatives in these forces have been bumped off regularly by the Tamil Tigers.

You know what? I am no soothsayer, but I suspect that a similar situation might arise with Tamil teachers and principals in the education system in the North. As lately as this week Tamil Tigers gunned down two Jaffna School principals and let me repeat, the assassins were not Sinhalese, but Tamils. They were Jaffna College principal, 58-year-old K.Rajadurai, and the principal of Kopay Christian College, N. Sivakadasam, who rose against the conscription of children by the Tamil Tigers. If my prediction comes true, I hope the separatists Tamil Diaspora will not blame the Sinhalese for the dearth of Tamil teachers and principals in the Jaffna peninsula. That is a reality check for the separatist Tamils, who keep crying foul against the Sinhalese at every turn of a corner.
