The former NP CM, C.V.Wigneswaran had said that the attacks made against Muslim people reminds us of the State Terrorism unleashed against Tamil People in 1983.
We should understand that similar to strangling the struggle for Rights of Tamil people with the assistance of Foreign countries, the Government is trying to blunt off the economy and political power of Muslims, depicting them as terrorists.
He had said this in a press release he had issued on the violence unleashed of Muslim people following the Easter Sunday explosions.
Elaborating further he had said that when one analyze the backgrounds of the attacks, it is evident that this is a well orchestrated attack. Sinhalese Governments and their military mechanism made the two minority races to confront each other in order to destroy the liberation struggle of the Tamil people politically and militarily.
The Sight of Sinhala Chauvinism, after obliterating the Tamil people fighting for liberation through genocidal war, has been turned on Muslim people now.
If the government try to destroy minorities using the Army, we should be ready to encounter it.
At this juncture the Tamil and Muslim intellectuals and politicians should forget about the bitterness of the past and act intelligently with the future in view.
