Militants attack Sri Lankan cricketers

 Unidentified gunmen opened fire on the bus in which Sri Lankan cricketers were travelling in Lahore. The team was leaving for the 3rd day of the second test between Pakistan and Sri Lanka at the Gaddafi stadium. According to reports five Lankan players are seriously injured including all-rounder Thilan Samaraveera who had scored his second consecutive double hundred just the previous day.  Vice captain Kumar Sangakkara, Ajanta Mendis, Chaminda Vaas, Thilan Tushara and Tharanga Panaviratna are the others injured. Five policemen have also been reported killed.

Vaiko’s Psychos and the tamil issue

 Terror politics seem to be the order of the day. Here in Tamil Nadu though, it is not the Bombay terror attacks they’re playing with but the issue of LTTE and Sri Lankan tamils. I was in for a bitter experience as I was returning from college today. I was travelling in a bus and just as I was nearing my destination my bus stopped in front of a road blockade. The driver managed to find out from the cops that a protest was going on in town. After waiting for sometime we decided to walk. And just as we were moving along the road, we saw a couple of white Scorpios whizzing past us with men in white veshtis clinging on the sides. Apparently the cops had let these political parasites through the blockade. Other buses were let through, but only after a considerable amount of time.

I decided to catch another bus and continue the journey. The traffic was moving at snail’s place as the protests neared. Then I began to see a lot of Red and Black flags, posters and hoardings of political nitwits on the roadsides. Unsurprisingly it was Vaiko’s MDMK which was in the protest mood and the CPI and the VCK had also joined in. I do agree that the Sri Lankan tamil issue is serious and action need to be taken. But I don’t se any justification in Vaiko’s or any ‘Dravidian’ politicians calls for the revokal on the ban on LTTE. As far as I’m concerned and anybody else whose got some brains, the LTTE is a terrorist organization involved in anti-humanitarian work and anybody who supports them also should be branded as terrorists. It is the tamils in Sri Lanka who are suffering because of their so called ‘protectors’.  A party like the CPI also involved in this only shows that it is just a vote campaign for the General Elections which are just around the corner. 

I was also perplexed to see pictures of leaders including those of Vaiko and VCK’s Thol. Thirumavalavan in military attire resembling that of the LTTE, though this is nothing new. But what shocked me the most was that there was even a life size poster of a man in camo with an SMG holstered.  This bastard was apparently one of the chief guests and I also managed to catch some of his speech while returning. Action should be taken against these people who are secretely and some openely indulging in support of outlawed organisations. CM doesn’t have a backbone literally, at least he should show that he has one figuratively by doing something. At a time when terror strikes are a common phenomena, cops who should be securing the people are heavily guarding these terrorists themselves. When will these psychos ever learn a lesson. Only last week, the BJP had paid its price for politicizing Bombay terror; drubbed in elections in Delhi and Rajasthan.
