Tamils stuck in Prabhakaran’s terrorism – Col Karuna

[b]Tamils stuck in Prabhakaran’s terrorism – Col Karuna[/b]

Colombo, 27 November, (Asiantribune.com): Declaring that the Tamils have lost their freedom struggle because they are stuck in terrorism V. Muralitharan (Col. Karuna) President of the Tamileelam Makkal Viduthalai Puligal (TMVP) has asked the new government of Mahinda Rajapakse to:

1. revise the Ceasefire Agreement that paved the way for the LTTE to kill Tamils, Muslims and Armed Forces;

2. reconsider the role of Norway and

3. LTTE should be disarmed before commencing any talks.

Muralitharan raised these and other issues in exposing Prabhakaran’s anti-democratic terror tactics in his Heroes’ Day speech.

Here is the full text of his speech:

On a day when we dedicate ourselves to the memory of our fighters who sacrificed their lives for the liberation of Tamil Elam we have to pray for the liberation of our Tamil people.

We have before us the duty to ensure that the valour and sacrifices of our fighters are not made meaningless.

We had with us many intellectuals and leaders to lead and guide our people. But, we have lost all of them. Therefore it is our foremost duty to safeguard the lives of our remaining intellectuals and learned men and women.

I very much regret the fact that we who started a freedom struggle to liberate our people are fighting our own youth instead of fighting the enemy.

I never wanted our youth to fight among themselves and get mutually destroyed. I have seen for myself how wrong this is. That is why I sent all my young fighters to their homes. However, the LTTE killed all those whom we sent home without remorse or mercy. They were killed even when they were asleep and by treachery. We cannot call this an act of valour.
