Colombo demonstrates military diktats over resettlement in Jaffna after Geneva ‘update’

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 12 July 2016, 13:10 GMT]
The commander of the occupying military of genocidal Sri Lanka in Jaffna has re-iterated the military diktat on Monday by going on record that there was no reduction in the camps or number of military troops in Jaffna. Claiming that there would be no such consideration of reducing the troops in 10 years in the future, Major General Mahesh Senanayake was also demonstrating that any resettlement of uprooted Eezham Tamils in the former ‘High Security Zone’ in Valikaamam North could only take place at the mercy of the Sinhala military. A few uprooted Tamil women and the Additional Government Agent of Jaffna were asked to be present in the ‘inauguration’ ceremony of the military-conceived, SL government-funded housing scheme for 100 families at a limestone quarry land near Maavidda-puram. The quarry lands belong to KKS Cement factory.

The ‘housing-scheme’ to be constructed by the SL military is an attempt to permanently enslave the uprooted Tamils as a slave population in pre-determined pockets in the outskirts of the largest military base in North, said the representatives of uprooted Eezham Tamils in Valikaamam North.

Around 3,400 uprooted Tamil families below the poverty line are languishing in 34 ‘welfare’ camps. The SL military has been continuously trying to deceive the people to opt for slave settlements at useless lands while robbing their fertile lands.

The latest deception by the SL military is to locate 2nd generation landless people from the camps of uprooted Tamils and lure them into accepting military-conceived ‘housing’ with 20 perches of lands per family.

Colombo government and its external partners who want to muffle protest coming from Eezham Tamils are actively promoting the ‘Sinhala-only’ determined military ‘reconciliation’ for war-affected Tamils. This is not different from the so-called military rehabilitation and enslavement of former LTTE members into the so-called ‘Civil Security Division’ personnel, who are forced to work at military-run farms in Vanni, commented an uprooted Eezham Tamil residing at Chunnaakam ‘welfare’ centre.

In the meantime, the US Establishment wants the Sinhala military to be deployed in military missions outside the island, informed sources in Colombo said.

The recognition given to SL military by Washington and New Delhi is interpreted by Eezham Tamils as continued abetment to protracted genocide against them, as the irreversible colonisation of the occupied homeland of Eezham Tamils and the structural genocide is spearheaded by genocidal Sri Lanka through militarization of North and East.

Eezham Tamils view the occupying SL military not only as a genocidal military, but also as a 'Lascarine' force, which is re-enacting the services of the Sinhalese to European colonialism of the past, to today's imperialists. Lascarine was a popular term in Sinhala to mean the local Sinhala soldiers who served the Portuguese and the Dutch.
