Karunanidhi pops up again
What Jayalalitha could do about it
Among all normal citizens the world over the human mind is the same
irrespective of nationality, race and language. It is the pollution that
it receives and accepts from outside that makes them the way they are.
Karunanidhi has successfully made many Tamil Nadu citizens believe
that the Sri Lankan army is killing Tamils in Sri Lanka and has called
upon Manmohan Singh to send his Foreign Minister Pranab Mukkerjee to Sri
Lanka and order our Government to stop killing Tamils thus creating
hatred in Tamil Nadu against the majority Sinhalese in Sri Lanka. Singh
has done nothing about it for reasons known to both Singh and us but
Karunanidhi’s call to save the Tamils in Sri Lanka has paid him
dividends in being elected the leader for the 10th time.
If it is said that he would have won in any case one should remember
that his only political weapon has been hate against the Sinhalese on
the bases of discrimination much earlier long before he started accusing
the Sri Lankan army of killing Tamils. So here is a man whose political
success has been purely on the propagation of hate. When Jayalalitha
said that the Sri Lankan army are killing LTTE and not the Tamils
Karunanidhi has it seems challenged her. Now that Karunanidhi has made a
large section of the Tamil Nadu population believe in what he has
asserted all along, a golden opportunity has arisen for Jayalalitha to
send a team with all equipment to record what is taking place in Sri
Lanka with regard to discrimination and killings complete with plenty of
interviews with the Tamils that the army has liberated.
She has the advantage that all the interviews will be in Tamil and
the viewers will be able to discern the genuineness or otherwise of the
replies given by noting their facial and bodily expressions. That is the
best antidote to the poison of Karunanidhi.
As to Karunanidhi’s reminder to Manmohan Singh that he has been
sitting on his request without doing anything Singh might very well say
that he would send Mukkerjee at the earliest opportunity he gets. So
Karunanidhi you have to be a little patient and wait till he gets his
