image011MOONGILARU, Sri Lanka – Srilankan Army Shelled in Civilian Place
and attacked a hospital in March 2009.
What did this child do? The picture is not published to avoid the horror.
None of the Indian or International news papers are displaying the news
Desperately they are hiding the news………….
In Jan 2009 Srilankan Army attacked civilans in Moongilaru, Srilanka
Almost 10 children were killed in this attack… Who is going to question Srilanka ?
The only error is that these innocent are tamils.
Pregnant women were brutally killed by Srilankan Army…………
This is the world’s worst deadliest attack……. 8 month foetus was also killed
A pregnant woman was killed by Srilankan army on March 17 2009 (Baby inside her body) Where is the Head? In the picture there is no head. The picture is not published to reduce the horror.

Just 13 year old school student was beheaded.
What is the use of UN?
From January 1 2009 until March 30 2009……………………………………………………..
3812 innocent tamils were killed by Srilankan Army it includes more than 900 children.
UN report says….. Every day 42 tamils are killed by Srilankan Army……
They are their own citizens, citizens of our mondern world and members of human family.
Srilankan government did not allow the UN and ICRC members in Vanni (Tamil place in Srilanka)
They want to hide the news from the entire world….. Planned and Perfect GENOCIDE
Rajapaksey & Co are the culprits of this sad part of the human history.

Some people may think this is internal problem of a country……. why should we worry?
If it is an internal problem or war why we studied about Hitler in our history book.
The Aim is the future generation should not repeat the same error.

Book on Anti-Christian Riots in Kandhamal released

NEW DELHI, India – On April 8 2009, a well-known journalist Kuldip Nayar released a book Kandhamal — a Blot on Indian Secularism, which deflates the claim that Kandhamal carnage and mayhem of 2008 were spontaneous Hindu reaction to the assassination of a swamiji there.

Written by Anto Akkara, also a journalist, the book (Media House, Delhi) has graphic reproduction of the zig-zag route of the funeral procession taken out in defiance of curfew which was a ploy to whip up communal frenzy in the area.

The funeral procession on this route stretched over two days instead of the short route. And it ended up with three-fourth of the houses destroyed, 75 Christians killed and 250 churches and Christian institutions damaged.

Nayar said the well-written book has made an objective analysis of the events and vividly described the happenings which became a blot on India’s secular credentials.

Real picture

“The book gives you a real picture of certain forces in the country. While earlier Muslims and Sikhs were targeted, now their attention has been focused on Christians”, he added.

Social worker Swamy Agnivesh said while human rights activists and even Union minister of state for home Sriprakash Jaiswal were not allowed to enter Kandhamal, Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Praveen Togadia was permitted to lead the funeral procession.

He said the book, which has exposed the fundamentalists and their agenda of attacking a small minority community, was a wake-up call to all those who were keen on protecting the secular fabric of the country.

Akkara said the national media forgot the Kandhamal carnage after initially reporting on it. “The Kandhamal genocide was a shocking episode in the annals of Indian democracy”, he said adding that 50,000 people have become refugees after the carnage.

Seven months after the attack, only 633 have been arrested although 11,340 were named in the chargesheets.

Book on Kandhamal raises Questions on Orissa Govt’s Role

NEW DELHI, India – On April 8, 2009, a book on the anti-Christian violence that rocked the Kandhamal district of Orissa has claimed that the carnage was orchestrated and not a spontaneous reaction to the murder of Hindu religious leader.

The book ‘Kandhamala blot on Indian Secularism’ by Anto Akkara, a senior journalist was released by veteran journalist and social activist Kuldip Nayar here.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr Akkara, who visited Kandhamal six times after violence erupted following the murder of Swami Lakshmananda Saraswati on August 23 last year, said the incidents were not spontaneous, but part of a planned genocide.

He said the long, circuitous route along which Swami Lakshmanananda’s funeral procession was taken was a ”ploy to whip up communal passions and execute the anti-Christian agenda that had been chalked out much earlier and put to test on a limited scale during Christmas in 2007.

The procession moved like an oyster along zigzag and rugged paths covering nearly 250 kms over two days instead of half the distance it should have taken along the main roads and should have been completed in few hours, had they taken the body straight to his native place,” he pointed out.

He said three-fourths of the houses destroyed (official figures say 3900 though Christian organisations put the figure at over 5000) were in Raikia, Tikabali, G Udaigiri and Nuagam blocks. These blocks should not have been covered by the funeral procession, if the shortest route had been followed, he added.

He also flayed the Government for standing as a mute spectator during the incidents and later trying to hide the actual number of those killed.

While the Orissa Government has acknowledged only 32 riot related deaths, he said an affidavit containing names of 75 killed have already been submitted to the Supreme Court by the Christian organisations.

”The result–not only the family of the dead would not get compensation both from the Centre and the state government, this would also ensure that that the culprits will not be touched by law, as the murders are not acknowledged by the state government,” he said.

He also pointed out that only 633 arrests have been made though 11,348 have been named in 784 FIRs charged with serious offences like murder and rioting.

Addressing the gathering, Mr Nayar emphasised on the need to ”secularise” Hindus, and said urgent steps should be taken to ensure that incidents like those that rocked Kandhamal did not recur.

”We must do something to secularise the Hindus. Minorities are gradually feeling helpless. We have been giving them mere lip service and not sharing the one citizen-one law rule. Majority community members must introspect and feel that minorities are as much citizens of this country as they are, otherwise it will be a sad day for democracy,” he said.

He said minorities should not be driven to the conviction that they will not get justice in this country.

Swami Agnivesh, who was also present at the function, expressed regrets that the perpetrators of the violence had been given tickets by the BJP in the Lok Sabha elections.

Accusing the BJD-BJP government in the state of being ”partisan”, he pointed out that not only social activists like himself but even the Union Minister of State for Home Sriprakash Jaiswal were prevented from going to Kandhamal.

He also said the Centre too did not take any strong action.

Mr Kamal Mitra Chenoy of Jawaharlal Nehru University, who also spoke on the occasion, said the state governments should be held solely responsible for such carnages. ”The Union Government should also order under Article 256 and 257 of the Constitution to carry out provisions of the law. Plus, human rights machineries should be strengthened too as their reports present a stronger case in the courts of law,” he said.

Book on Kandhamal raises Uncomfortable Questions

NEW DELHI, India – On April 10 2009, the story of perverted justice in Orissa’s Kandhamal has surfaced again. A new book raises uncomfortable questions on what happened there. Swami Agnivesh said, “Immediately after Swami’s death, all Christian organizations condemned the attack. Yet, the BJP and friends said, nahi – yeh inhoneen hi kiya hai (It’s the Christians who have done this). Investigative Journalist Anto Akkara said, “I think the ashes in Kandhamal are not of the churches or of the Christians there. I think the ashes are the ashes of Indian secularism. Seven months after Orissa’s anti-Christian pogrom, comes the first book from ground zero, Kandhamal.

Six investigative trips deep into tribal country, throw up horror stories from hundred’s of victims. And despite government claims to the contrary, the journalist author says peace has still not returned to Kandhamal.

Akkara feels that holding elections in Kandhamal right now will be a farce.

Why was Lakshmananda’s final march allowed despite an official curfew? Eleven thousand people were named in FIR’s. Why have only six hundred been arrested? Why are people being forced out of relief camps – when villagers openly threaten to kill them? The book raises uncomfortable questions – ignored or forgotten by the media.

The wife who caught dogs eating her burnt husband’s body, the nun raped, then paraded naked – they make you wonder if this is really a secular country.
