Listen if you are to ask any sinhalese person today whether its acceptable for a part of our country to be acceded to the LTTE, they would immediately blast you for even aksing such a thing. My point is if there is a significant movement in the international coomunity towards recognizing kosovo as a country (already the US, EU and several other nations have) why can’t they recognize tamil Elam as a country. How different were the chauvinistic sinhala regimes of the Bandaranaika’s and the Rajapakse’s different from the regime of Slobodan Milosevic. It is aboslutely absurd, the sinhalese majority government lost their right to govern over us ever since the 1960’s with the passing of the one language bill. As long as there is a sinhala majority in this country, the Sri Lankan regime will continue to pass dicriminatory measures all in the name of defeating terrorism and the sinhalese majority is sure to turn a blind eye. I am appealing to the inetrnational community what makes us different from Kosovo.
