The Tamil National People’s Front (TNPF), Tamil Diaspora groups, Tamil activists and other Tamil political parties have condemned an attempt to invite representatives of the genocidal state as guests for the Kite festival, which is held in Valvertithurai, Jaffna.
The Tamil National People’s Front (TNPF) Monday (03) condemned the attempt to invite representatives of the genocidal government as guests to the Kite festival.
TNPF Leader Gajendrakumar Ponnambalam said in a statement that this move to invite government representatives to the Jaffna Kite Festival this year, for the first time, could never be justified.
The Kite festival has been held in Valvettithurai for a long time, reflecting the Tamil culture. But, this year under the leadership of anti-Tamil forces. This year, organizers had partnered with the Ministry of Youth and Sports Affairs, led by Namal Rajapaksa.
This is a series of attempts to annihilate Tamil culture, which has entangled the organizing committee into a conspiracy by government agents who have sought to invite representatives of the genocidal state as guests and undermine Tamil Nation prestige.
Thus, if this Kite festival event takes place as part of a series of attempts to destroy Tamil culture, it will be a dirty event in Tamil history. “The Sri Lankan government has completely neglected the issue of Tamil People’s accountability. Relatives of the disappeared are still taking to the streets demanding justice. The gradual Sinhala colonisation is taking place continuously in the Tamil motherland.
In a situation where lands of the Tamils were being taken over forcibly, inviting government representatives as guests can never be justified. If this event was organized, this would be recorded as an incident of black mark in Tamil history, he added.
Tamil diaspora groups have also released statements, condemning the organizers for inviting government representatives to the Festival alleging it was against the Tamil culture.
