Unparalleled Hypocrisy in Tamil Nadu

Politics in Tamil Nadu has taken an unparalleled and unprincipled turn towards hypocrisy with the naked espousal of terrorism.

For years India has been crying hoarse about Pakistan and its overt and covert support for the insurgents in Kashmir -- first of the indigenous JKLF variety and then the imported Jihadis of the Taliban, and just when the world has started to listen to us ... the Dravidian parties want us to do what we have been criticising Pakistan about !!

The LTTE represents the most venal and vicious brand of terrorism that has menaced the planet -- they were the first to deploy a human bomb and have devalued the concept of motherhood by having their lady cadres conceive a child so that they can take advantage of their pregnancy to elude security checks while carrying bombs strapped to their bodies !!!

Whether such depraved terrorists have a genuine cause to fight for or not is none of our concern. There is a democratically elected government in Sri Lanka and they are doing their job of cleaning up their own backyard. And there is no evidence of any Rwanda or Bosnia style ethnic cleansing.

Given this scenario, why on earth should India poke its nose into what is very clearly none of our business ? And that too when we scream from the rooftops that Pakistan is aiding and abetting terrorists in Kashmir and even in Assam !

Fortunately the Government of India still has some sane and sensible people and it is doing its best to stay out of the mess but that cannot be said of the people and agitators ( let us not call them leaders ) in Tamil Nadu.

The Tamil MPs have threatened to resign from Parliament ... I would suggest that let them do that ! Parliament is anyway on its last legs and its days are numbered. Elections are just a few months away and a few MPs more or less hardly matters.

So let us call the Tamil bluff and let Sri Lanka solve its own problems on their own.

I agree with the conclusion of Tamil extremism and LTTE craziness but if there had not been an LTTE probably every Tamil in Sri Lanka would now be treated like what the Tutsis of Rwanda were in 1994 mass killing. Everything is started with a reason and is lost in the process. Thats what has happened to LTTE and many other organizations.
