Tamils…. Are we born to die….??? கொன்று குவித்தது உடல்களை மட்டும் இல்லை தமிழனின் உணர்வுகளையும்தான் .! உடல்கள் இல்லை என்ற போதும் இன்னும் சிறைப் பிடிக்கப்பட்டுதான் கிடக்கிறது தமிழனின் சுவாசங்கள் அந்த முள்வேலி முகாம்களில் தோட்டாக்களின் சத்தங்களும், தமிழனின் கதறல்களும் மட்டுமே இன்னும் ஓங்கி ஒலித்துக் கொண்டிருக்கிறது நிசப்த இரவுகளிலெல்லாம் தனிமை என்ற பெயரில். There are not only Tamil’s bodies were killed but also our fillings…Although no bodies are still lying on the prison but our soul still in prison in the way of our mind. Tamil ‘s breath ,paling of the noise of the bullets in the camps and the cries of Tamils are the only raising sounds which is can be hear in the silent night in the name of privacy…………….

Who are Tamil???
Sri Lankan Tamils
Descendants of Tamils who have been living in Sri Lanka for centuries
Descendants of tea plantation workers brought in from India by the British
SINHALESE SPEAK SINHALA; BUDDHISTS
10 WHERE DO THEY LIVE? Indian Tamils Highland districts – tea plantation Sri Lankan Tamils Jaffna Peninsular (more than 95% of the population) Batticaloa District (more than 70%) Northern and Eastern Districts : Form large minorities Sinhalese Found in large numbers everywhere Except in Jaffna and Batticaloa In some southern districts, they form almost the entire population
What we struggle for
Why we need a separate land We didn’t get Citizenship Rights Jobs in Government Service University Admission Resettlement of Population AND OUR PEOPLE WERE KILLED BY THE SRILANKAN GOVERNMENT
Citizenship Rights 1964 : India stepped in Help those Tamil Indians who were stateless Held discussions with Sri Lanka Agreed to allow a number of Indian Tamils to return to India The rest granted citizenship Problem : Till late 1980s, agreement still not carried out in full by Sri Lanka About 100,000 still stateless Working on tea plantations and contributing to the economy
Jobs in Government Service British Rule
English-educated Tamils entered government service
Held some of the most powerful jobs although they were a minority
Sinhalese – majority in the country but could not read or write English
Jobs in Government Service Independence
Sinhalese government wanted to improve position of majority Sinhalese
Made Sinhalese the only language of administration in 1956 under the Official language Act
Tamils were given 3 years to learn Sinhala or be dismissed
Tamils upset as they could not be promoted; some could not even secure jobs
A peaceful demonstration was disrupted by Sinhalese and riots occurred
Resulted in more than 100 deaths
University Admissions Before 1970
University admission based on merit
Exams held in English
Number of Tamil and Sinhalese students in medical and engineering almost equal
1969 : 50% medical students Tamil
48% engineering students Tamil
Sinhalese were unhappy because the ratio was not proportionate to the numbers
University Admissions After 1970
Change in education policies
Compulsory for Tamil students to score higher marks than their Sinhalese counterparts
Over the next 4 years, admission criteria were changed to make it more difficult for tamil youths to enter university
Tamil student % for engineering courses fall from 48% in 1969 to 24.4% in 1973
14.2& in 1975
But more Sinhalese students were able to enter university
Resettlement of Population
Another policy which caused resentment
Resettlement of poor Sinhalese peasants
Transferred from densely populated south-western and central areas into Tamil areas
Government implemented this to provide land for landless Sinhalese peasants
Tamils were of course unhappy
Buddhist monks and Sri Lankan soldiers(mostly Sinhalese) also came to occupy their land
What next When we ask for our rights peacefully….. We didn’t get it ….and we stands as the soldiers to get our land and rights…. THEN BORN……………
TAMIL TIGERS UNDER A GREAT MAN
VELUPILLAI PRABHAKARAN He lives his life only for Tamil people… But lastly the Sri lankagovernment categorize HIM as terrorist
ARMS CONFLICT With the formation of the militant group LTTE, violence was inevitable They attacked pro-Sri Lankan government Tamils; Sinhalese e.g. 1983 riots Sinhalese – 1956: peaceful demonstration disrupted by Sinhalese Security forces – encouraged violence
Violent Means SINHALESE
Sinhalese also showed hostility through violence
Anti-Tamil riots first in 1956, then 1958, 1971, 1977 and 1983
Many killed and injured
Tamils forced to flee for their lives
such riots were encouraged by the Sinhalese security forces such as the army
Impact: Many people died(60,000–100,000 killed) Many others missingMuch more injured or paralyzed Most importantly a lot of Tamil girls were raped and killed in a cruel way. BY SRILANKAN FORCES Tamil children were purposely killed in order to minimize the current generation
INDIA IS ANOTHER CONTRIBUTER FOR MASS MURDER IN SRILANKA When the war is going on in Sri lankaon building a separate nation…. The Indian troops were being a part of Sri lankatroops… which killed a lot of civilians in the categorization of Tamil tigers.
Are they looking like terrorist… A small kid… is this kid is terrorist … what they did until the Sri lankanarmy could do this kind of unimaginable killings
ROLE OF WORLD & UN USELESS!!!! WORLD GOVERNMENT THEY JUST TALK!!!! BUT NEVER TRY TO STOP THE WAR…….. NOW THERE ARE A LOT OF EVIDENCE WERE COMING OUT CRITICIZE ON SRILANKAN GOVERNMENT ON THE GENOCIDE THAT THEY CONDUCTED TOWARDS TAMIL’S IN SRILANKA.. BUT WHAT THEY DID….. WHEN IRAQ INVOLVE IN WAR…. UN SECURITY COUNCIL IMMEDIATELY TAKE ACTION WITH SENDING PEACEKEEPING TROOPS… WHEN IRAN FACEING WAR…. THEY ARE THERE…BUT Y THEY DIDN’T DO ANYTHING AT SRILANKA….. BCS WHAT WE TAMIL HAVE….. IF WE GOT OIL MINERALS AS IN IRAQ THEY WILL BE THERE IN SRILANKA….. BUT UNFORTUNATELY WE JUST GOT DEAD BODIES OF OUR EELAM SOLDIERS UNDER THE SOIL…..OF TAMIL EELAM……….. SO FOR THEM ITS UNNECESSARY………………. AND PRICELESS………….
AT LAST… LTTE Were Defeated By The Sri lankanArmy …..With The Help Of A Lot Of Big Powers And Mainly Is With The Help Of India May 16: Sri Lanka declares victory May 17: Tigers admit defeat May 18: First claim of Prabhakaran's death THE JUST CAN DEFEATE THE MAN POWER BUT NOT TIGERS WILL POWER…..
COMING BACK TO OUR TEAM…. ETHNIC CONFLICT IN SRI LANKA IS A WELL PLANNED DISCRIMINATION TO TAMIL'S IT’S A GENOCIDE….AND NOT A ACTION ON PROTECTING NATION.. even today…the Tamil tigers struggle on creating a separate state for Tamil's were defeated but the pressure from the Tamils from other countries are still ongoing….. I have to note a important statement here TAMIL TIGERS ARE NOT TERRORIST THE Y ARE FREEDOM FIGHTERS….
THANK U FOR YOUR ATTENTION THE TAMIL EELAM WILL BE ACHIEVED SOON… AND IT’S A PROMISE TO OUR “MAAVEERAR’S”(SOLDIERS) WHO WERE BEEN SACRIFICE THEIR LIFE FOR OUR LAND….
