Tamil tabloids con and cheat the community

Unless a community is infantile and immature or exceedingly naïve the media organizations especially the publishers of tabloids would not have prospered as they appear to have done over the years among the Tamil Diaspora. This is true of the Tamil communities in their new homelands be it Canada, US, UK, France, Switzerland, Norway, Denmark, Germany and Australia.
The LTTE may be wiped out in Sri Lanka but in these countries, the bullying presence of LTTE standard holders is more than evident. Though in total disarray, each one and each group eying to appropriate for themselves the incredible LTTE funds and fortunes squirreled in various places and forms, the community is being held captive to the belief that the Eelam War is still on and in course of time Eelam will be achieved.

This is key to the continuing con that enables to cheat the Tamil community for more funds for the Eelam course. All kinds of novel ideas are being hatched from wanting to build toilets in Wanni to setting up an Eelam government in exile, all of which costs money. Fund collectors also need funds to pay the mortgages for their mansions and other commitments of personal nature.
