In the last ten years of interest in politics, I have never the felt the need to join the protest march on the street. But the current genocide in Sri Lanka is making me think whether i should join the protesters on the street. I have never went on a protest march before, simply because the government have always worried about the view of the common man. But today, even when the state and central government knew the sentiments of the common man in Tamil Nadu, they chose to have a "No Care" Attitude. Simply Because they knew it won't be an election issue. Simply because Tamils are more worried about voting based on their caste, religion rather than on the injustice being meted out to their brethen across the border.
I am not a big fan of LTTE. But the things that are happening in Sri Lanka now is not right. And if Srilankan President is dreaming that this war would bring peace to the nation in a few days, it is just a pipe dream. Srilankan Army may win this battle but they will never win the war against Srilankan Tamils and their fight will continue until justice is done to Sri Lankan Tamils. LTTE under Prabhakaran might not be the organization that will win the war but I am sure someday, someone will.
