Another Victim of Peace
Lakshman Kadirgamar, Foreign Minister of Sri Lanka was assasinated yestreday (12th August) by LTTE. He was the major voice against the acts of terrorism, which LTTE was openly conducting. He pressurised LTTE to come to negotitions by successfully campaigning western countries to ban the organization on their countries.
His murder is another dispicable act by the Terrorist who seems to have impunity to do anything they want, because of the so called MOU signed between previous goverment & LTTE. They keep killing army officers, rival party members & now a government minister. How long the Sri Lankan Governmetn going to turn a blind eye is the question now everyone is asking.
If this trend continues, there would be an ugly uprising which will effect all the people in Sri Lanka. Specially the innocent Tamils living in harmony in south. While it is acepted that we need a political resolution for the ethnic problem in Sri Lanka, it does not mean we have to accept terrorism as a part of the negotiations.
Like Israel we must fight against terrorists while the political process is going on. Otherwise people will reject any peaceful resolutions & the country will plunge back to the chaos it once had.
