Dear Rathika:

In your Statement of the arrest of students in Jaffna, Sri Lanka, you said: “Recently the Sri Lankan government arrested and detained students without cause following a silent protest after security forces broke up a lamp lighting ceremony at a woman’s hostel at Jaffna University.  The students, protesting against the lack of freedom of expression, were attacked and beaten by officers, with at least 20 undergraduate students suffering from injuries.”


Response to Fr. Emmanuel’s love for “Sinhalese Buddhists”!-Interview with Fr. Emmanuel by Sri Lankan Guardian/Nov 2012

The man who rechristened Prabakaran “anna” as “Jesus Christ”, the LTTE as “soldiers of Christ” and LTTE suicide bombers as “martyrs” is none other than President of the Global Tamil Forum – Father S J Emmanuel now self-exiled in Germany and not the least piqued that he himself is referred to as the “Desmond Tutu” of Tamils! The LTTE-Church links is nothing anyone can hide.
