JHU condemns killing of Joseph Pararajasingham
THE Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) in a media release under the signature
of its General Secretary Ven.Omalpe Sobhitha Thera yesterday condemned
the assassination of TNA MP Joseph Pararajasingham while he was engaged
in prayers at St. Mary's Church, Batticaloa on Christmas Day.
It conveyed the JHU's condolences to the late MP's wife who was
herself wounded in the course of the same incident and other members of
the bereaved family.
While condemning the LTTE's low political and military strategy of
putting the blame for this brutal act on the Government Military Forces
and the Jathika Hela Urumaya, the media release pointed out that this
assassination has to be understood by the past history of the LTTE when
their ruthless gun was turned against the friend and foe alike as long
as the circumstances warranted such targets to achieve their fascist
Tamil Arusu Kachchi MP Joseph Pararajasingham was a TNA ally who
efficiently defended LTTE terrorism and its military strategy at an
He justified the LTTE terrorist goal of dividing the country against
the will of the Sinhala, Tamil, Muslim and other ethnic groups of the
island as a liberation struggle.
The Fascist thinking of the LTTE did not recognize the sin of
dissolving a worthy friend like Joseph Pararajasingham, as long as that
decision helped their Fascist course of separation.
By this assassination LTTE targeted two ambitions. One is to mitigate
the international disrepute they earned as a result of the Lakshman
The second is the erasing off of international scars caused by their
denial of democratic right to the citizens of the North and East at the
last Presidential Election.
Similarly the persistent continuation of child conscriptions in the
North and East and the callous disregard of the ceasefire agreement in
the face of President Mahinda Rajapakse's invitation to resume peace
talks are other factors that have blighted the international arena
against the LTTE.
When viewed against such a backdrop, it is not difficult to
understand the LTTE motive to eliminate their friend MP Pararajasingham.
His name will go down in the LTTE history as a martyr who laid down
his life to achieve the LTTE goal, the JHU Media release pointed out.
It warned those who bless the LTTE Fascism both here and abroad, to
learn a lesson from the assassination of MP Pararajasingham and join
hands ignoring all manner of differences to defeat the LTTE who justify
injustice to a nation that aspire for peace and harmony.
