Wilpattu Muslim houses

The question is simple and direct. The problem is, no one is giving a correct answer. Scores of articles, press conferences, statements have been issued none of which have given the public the confidence that they are being told the truth. The importance of Wilpattu is far more than its historical, archeological or environmental value. Wilpattu is a strategic security value center for Sri Lanka and it is on this ground that authorities should realize they need to get their act together.

Crime Scene Tape

Why has media conveniently omitted mentioning a news item that deserves world attention? Why has media not thought it fit to report the 31 child mass grave sites found inside the Canadian Indian Residential School grounds and why is Canada silent on what happened to the 50,000 missing children from schools run by the United Church of Canada? Why has the media not condemned the action and demanded why the Canadian Judicial System refused to give the native Indians court time? Why has the media not highlighted this important aspect in the light of Canada promoting itself as a beacon of human rights values? Why did the international papers chose to omit from breaking news the declaration by the Brussels international court that Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, Catholic Pope Joseph Ratziner and 37 other elites were guilty of crimes against humanity?

Tamil Civilians

Several developments of late require us to raise some pertinent questions and the questions lead back to May 2009. We are aware that 11,000 LTTE fighters were either caught or surrendered themselves to the Sri Lankan security forces. We are told that the Security Forces saved 294,000 Tamils. What we are not told is how many of these ‘civilians’ were actually civilians or could have been LTTE fighters posing as civilians. The question is important because Gobi who was shot dead did not surrender but posed as a civilian in May 2009 and enjoyed being treated as a civilian in the Ananda Coomaraswamy internally displaced persons camp in Chettikulam. This same ‘civilian’ became a fugitive after shooting a policeman on search operations and was killed by security forces on 11 April 2014. Gobi was not a civilian but a LTTE cadre.
