Two Lankan Tamils – Two perspectives

21 Sep
(September 20, Colombo, Sri Lanka Guardian) Dr Rrajasingham Narendran’s (RN) piece is tiled both as “A Brief Overview of post-Independence” as well as “History of communal relations” A perusal of the brief comments show they are more a critique on those who were at the helm of affairs in Jaffna Society from Independence (until the Tigers imposed their fascistic rule)Having read RN’s regular comments in diaspora and other journals, one is left with two conclusions.
1. For reasons not clear, he is a strident critique of the TNA, the TULF and the Tamil leadership under
Mr R. Sampanthan and colleagues – bar the few instances he passes some complimentary remarks on this grouping
2. He gives the impression of being more pro-government even in instances where this appears to be patently against Tamil interests. He makes very little effort to leave the impression he is more inclined towards pro-Douglas Devananda politics.
