Our proposed resolution is to hold referendums among the Tamil people, allowing them to choose between two options: the establishment of a Tamil sovereign nation or remaining within the current political framework.
Dear Readers of Tamil Diaspora News,
We would like to extend our heartfelt wishes for the new year, hoping that it will bring you and your family good health, happiness, and prosperity. May this upcoming year be filled with an abundance of joyous moments and create beautiful memories that will last a lifetime. Wishing you all the best as you embark on this new chapter!
As Tamils, it is important for us to make a promise to ourselves. Let us not allow our minds to be influenced by the old car salesman or the misleading discussions on the current situation in the north-east.
Do not ask for small ask big, then only you may even get something may or may not be useful.
So do not ask for federalism or the 13th amendment, ask for a sovereign nation.
Tell every diplomats and western government officials that we respect the democracy that should be within the Tamils, but we do not respect the so-called majority Sinhalese democracy. Because it is the proof that we see the last 75 years.
When discussing democracy, one of the key pillars we often rely on is the referendum.
Due to our unwavering belief in democracy, the aspirations of the Tamils to achieve their desires within a unified Sri Lanka were unfortunately unfulfilled. Contrary to their wishes, a tragic and widely recognized genocide took place. In light of this, we propose that the referendum be restricted to the participation of the Tamil people, regardless of their location within or outside of Sri Lanka.
It should be noted that in Sri Lanka, the democratic process and referendums are predominantly influenced by the Sinhalese community, which makes up 70% of the population. As a result, the Tamil community does not have an equal voice or representation in the unitary state of Sri Lanka.
We believe that the elected Tamil MPs should effectively represent the aspirations of the Tamil community on a global scale. Moving forward, we are committed to supporting Tamil candidates who advocate for a referendum to establish an independent nation. However, we cannot endorse candidates who support federalism or the implementation of the 13th amendment..
As the Tamil diaspora, we are currently financially prosperous and possess excellent technological knowledge. We are skilled in governing, managing the economy, and maintaining resources. It is worth noting that we now have access to many advanced tools that were not available in 2009.
Therefore, our proposed resolution is to hold referendums among the Tamil people, allowing them to choose between two options: the establishment of a Tamil sovereign nation or remaining within the current political framework.
