Rupawahini to Cover Pro-LTTE Event Live in Canada

According to the social media Facebook communication of the pro-LTTE Tamil terrorists front organization in Canada called The Canadian Tamil Congress (CTC) regarding their Thaipongal celebration event is scheduled to be held on the 20th of January 2018. The CTC has been a leading international front organization for the proscribed Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) terrorist organization. It was formed soon after the US State Department listed the Federation of Associations of Canadian Tamils (FACT) as a front organization for the LTTE Tamil terrorists with a new name and new faces to carry on the propaganda and support services for the Tamil terrorists.

It has been reported that the Tamil Broadcasting Service of Sri Lanka’s state owned Rupavahini is said to be travelling to Toronto to cover this event in live. The CTC has stated that they had not invited Rupavahini, but that Rupavahini requested that they be allowed to cover the event, to which CTC agreed with many conditions.

The CTC officials recently travelled to Sri Lanka to meet with government ministers and officials, and most likely sought coverage by Rupavahini of their mono-ethnic Thaipongal celebrations where they may well have a program to remember their fallen terrorist carders of the LTTE who engaged in suicide bombings, ethnic cleansing, assassinations and numerous acts of violence and murder in worldwide. Father Emmanuel who resides in Germany, who previously compared the LTTE Tamil terrorist leader Velupillai Prabhakaran to Jesus Christ was also in Sri Lanka at the same time as a VIP, and he too may have nudged the Sri Lankan authorities to send their Rupavahini team to Toronto.

At a time when ordinary Sri Lankans are struggling to survive with escalating living costs relating to higher sales taxes and income taxes, the government of Sri Lanka which has hitherto never covered events organized by the country’s diplomatic missions to improve inter-community relations aimed at building reconciliation have not been covered live by the state media. It is widely believe that the current Minister in charge of the Media former Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera who agreed to all pro-LTTE Tamil diaspora conditions at the UNHRC Resolution without proper cabinet approval to gain cheap political advantage from Tamils has good reasons for incurring a large expense in scarce foreign funds for this tamasha in terms of the secret talks he has previously had in Singapore, etc., with the Tamil diaspora represented by the LTTE front organizations operating in western countries.

In a letter addressed to Maithripala Srisena, President of Sri Lanka, Mr. Mahinda Gunasekera, a Canadian of Sri Lankan origin, and also the President of Sri Lanka United National Association of Canada, has expressed that he was intrigued by the interest shown by the Tamil Broadcasting Service of the Sri Lanka’s state owned TV – Rupavahini, which has indicated that it would be travelling all the way from Colombo to Toronto, to cover the Thai Pongal event, organized by the Canadian Tamil Congress (CTC), scheduled to be held in Toronto, on the 20th of January 2018.

Mr. Mahinda Gunasekera, a Canadian of Sri Lankan origin, and also the President of Sri Lanka United National Association of Canada, and  a vocal critic of LTTE activities in Canada  internationally  has written in a letter addressed to Maithripala Srisena  about this matter in length.

Canadian Tamil Congress

Dear CTC Members, Supporters and Friends,

Canadian Tamil Congress (CTC) will be proudly hosting its eleventh Annual Thai Pongal Gala Dinner on January 20th 2018.

There are some rumours being spread about the upcoming CTC dinner with the intent of tarnishing the organization. We would like to share with you, the facts in regard to a particular media from Sri Lanka requesting to cover our dinner event.

Rupavahini’s (Sri Lankan TV) Tamil service officials contacted CTC directly  and expressed their interest in covering the CTC Pongal dinner. We had informed these Tamil staff at Rupavahini, we will permit them to cover the event the same way we do for all other medias. We will not sponsor any expenses for any of medias covering our dinner event.

CTC advocates for media rights and freedom globally, thus our decisions will always reflect these core democratic principles.

Wishing you a Very Happy, Healthy Holiday Season and a Prosperous New Year.
