Dear Hon. Deepak Obhrai:

First of all, I would like to thank you for raising up the conflicts in Sri Lanka between Tamils and Sinhalese. I read an article about your statement in the House of Commons at Canada wants Lanka, LTTE to ‘build’ on Geneva II

Moreover, I also feel that you have not addressed the reality of the issue. Here are some points to ponder.

  • After the Canada and EU ban, Sinhala government started to increase the extrajudicial killings and offensives against Tamils.

Please try to understand the depth of the Tamil struggle, and don’t try to view it as a terrorist problem and apply “war on terrorism” solution. “Sinhala state terrorism” is the root cause of the problem, and still it is a problem. I have posted this letter in my blog at Canada wants Lanka, LTTE to ‘build’ on Geneva II
