Tamil civilians are not cannon fodder –Rauf Hakeem

(May 15, Colombo, Sri Lanka Guardian) SLMC leader Rauf Hakeem speaking to the media today (15 May) , said , the Government is so guilty and brazenly given to lying that it has more to hide than disclose on the war situation. If not , why is the Government not allowing the Opposition parties to visit the war zones and make a first hand analysis . As Parliamentarians , they are the people’s representatives , and if Govt. says they have no right to know of the true situation in the North and learn of the people’s hardships , who else has ? he asked.

Recently , thousand of civilians were injured and over 400 civilians were killed including 100 children ,after the Govt. asked them into come into the no fire zone. Despite this disaster to human lives , the Govt. instead of investigating and trying to avert further such catastrophes is blaming the Int. community and the UN as trying to help the LTTE ,when they ask the Govt. to give an account and an explanation over the incident.

The Govt. in order to play its game of cheap politics and please extremists is thinking it can pull the wool over the eyes of the world too, he exclaimed.

Shame to think you as a Sri Lankan. In this decisive moment while whole world trying to stop the ruthless terror group you are advocating somthing else. Blaming your own government. Look at the other countries, they become a united forece to defeat anything against their countries. You people live on our money and trying to humiliate own ountry. You and R Wickramasinghe should apply for refugee status in UK and Norway. WE do not like you

Rauf Hakeem your views DO NOT represent the Muslims of Sri Lanka. You are a traitor and quite possibly an agent of the terrorists. The armed forces are doing their very best to secure the country and at the same time taking all the necessary precautions not put the civilians in harms way. At this hour Sri Lanka does not need the likes of you and Ranil. You and Ranil are of the same dirty cloth. You both are just trying to create sensationalism for your own selfish agendas by attracting the attention of "certain" countries who are implicitly hostile to Sri Lanka. Please do the right the thing and seek refugee status in those "certain" countries. I am sure you have friends in the right places that can help smuggle (wink wink) you out!

Hakeem,

You have every right to address the needs of these people. The IDPs are Sri Lankans too. There is a difference between helping your fellow countrymen in times of need and helping prabhakaran escape. No one is advocating helping prabhakaran. The Tamil civilians must be treated with the same dignity and respect as the people in the rest of the country. As equal citizens, their needs must take priority over the war.

Rauff Hakeem has no authority or mandate to speak on behalf of Sri lankan Muslims. He can say what ever he wants as an opposition member never get Muslims involved. The days of SLMC representing the Muslims have long gone, after the killing of Mr Ashroff.
LTTE is a Terrorist organization and should be eradicated at any cost. They gained ground and established world wide with the help of Western governments globally and UNP locally.
IDP needs are needs of all Sri Lankans irrespective of cast, creed or colour but not supporting the terrorists LTTE. They do not represent the Tamils or Tamil speaking Muslims.
As a Srilankan Muslim living abroad and just returned from Sri lanka after five months stay in Sri Lanka I urge all Sri lankans loving peace to support the Government of Sri lanka to eradicate the terrorist group LTTE and to promote peace and harmony.
WE LIVED IN PEACE BEFORE AND WE WANT TO LIVE IN PEACE.

Rauf Hakeem is a survivor of this country finally hanging hold the tail of the Ranil. He does not represent the Muslim Community and his statements can be considered just someone who does not like the advance improvement on the goverment. Rauf Hakim citizenship should be taken off and let him seek asylaum in any of the african country. Muslim Congress represent the muslim community when late Mr.ASHRAF was alive. Hakeem is self thinking shamless Dirty Politicion. He must encurrage the government and the Military personnels who is trying to serve this country from the terrorists.
