Which is good for the country? Prabhakaran and Pottu Amman Dead or Alive!

It’s time to ponder on the subject which is good for the country? Prabhakaran and Pottu Amman Dead or Alive! Prabhakaran’s “Mythical Eeelam” about to vanish in to thin air. Prabhakaran’s citadel will come crumbling down very soon. By now, Prabhakaran and Pottu Amman may be scheming to escape. Tamil Nadu pro LTTE groups may be burning midnight oil in scheming plans to rescue Prabhakaran and Pottu Amman to a safer place. Where he will be safer? Tamil Nadu, London or Scarborough (little Eelam) in Torronto. London or Canada would be safer as they are LTTE havens. With assassination charges framed in India on Prabhakaran and Pottu Amman of killing Rajiv Gandhi, even under the patronage of Tamil Nadu, exile in India is very unlikely unless the Indian government gives official pardon to both of them which is also very unlikely. One thing I can bet on is that Prabhakaran and Pottu Amman will never bite the cyanide pill, if captured because they love their life albeit he has taken oath from his LTTE cadres that they will not surrender to the enemy (Govt. forces) but bite the cyanide pill.


'LTTE abuses civilians in Wanni' HRW report

Forced recruitment, restrictions on movement put lives at risk - HRW

Prabhakaran and Pottu Amman

Modern Indian history will record Prabhakaran and Pottu Amman as the greatest villains for the murder of India’s much loved son Rajiv Gandhi. Sri Lankan historians, at least some, may record the murder of Rajiv with philosophical sarcasm accompanied by a warning about the obvious - “do not say it stings when you have placed a snake inside your Kurtha”. Indira Gandhi made the blunder by nurturing Tamil terrorism within the Indian soil and Rajiv followed her initiative. Although she did not live to see Rajiv paying for the misdeed with his life it is a lesson for everyone in the world not to nurture evil that has always been counter productive. History is full of examples. The prime example from this side of the Palk Straight was Ranasingha Premadasa who nurtured evil among both the Sinhalese and Tamil Communities and was known to have murdered many people. He was killed by the Tamils and the Sinhalese set off celebratory fire crackers all over the country upon hearing the news of his death. Those who live by evil will die by evil.

Fleeing Tamils hit Indian political wall

The treacherously choppy Indian Ocean waters of the narrow Palk Strait, which separates India and Sri Lanka, now loom as a bridge too far for Sri Lankan Tamils trapped between the cornered Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and an uncertain welcome in India.
