Canadian Tamils for Peace and Democracy extend support to Mahinda

The Canadian Tamils for Peace & Democracy, a prominent civil rights group comprised of Sri Lankan Tamils living in Canada has pledged its fullest support to President Mahinda Rajapaksa at the forthcoming presidential election. According to ToL sources in Toronto , the group has passed a resolution unanimously to support President Rajapakse to be re-elected and as their only candidate for the Presidency.

The most recent confirmation of support came from the Executive Committee of CatPad, during their extraordinary meeting held on January 12, 2010 and ratified its support to the strong leadership given by President Mahinda Rajapakse to eradicate terrorism and restore democracy in the North and East of Sri Lanka.

In a press release today the group also requests the their brethren in Sri Lanka to follow its path to strengthen the hands of President Mahinda Rajapakse to take forward the task of not only defeating terrorism in the North and East but also to strengthen the democracy by developing the province economically and socially which are interconnected with peace and political stability in the country.

The Press Release in Full

“We urge our Tamils in the North and East to remember our past days under the LTTE warmongers and the communal UNP regime that supported them to establish a de facto government, which recognized LTTE, the most ruthless terrorist outfit in the World as the sole representative of the Tamils”. Let us not forget those horrible days under the LTTE. Their forceful recruitment of our beloved children, military training for young and old, killing of innocent civilians and moderate Tamils, suicide bombings, sufferings and sorrows followed by brutal war unnecessarily forced by the LTTE”

“Remember the precious lives of all communities lost by the brutally of LTTE and their sole supporter the UNP” Let us not forget the plight of our Tamil speaking Muslims whose lives were ruined by the cruel LTTE. We urge our Tamils in the North and East, to support a courageous leader who stood up for democracy for the Tamils and Peace for all Sri Lankans. We urge our Tamil speaking Muslims to rally behind the President, Mahinda Rajapakse, who brought them back to North, the land of their ancestors.

Remember the UNP which not only permitted the high powered transmission equipment presented by the Norwegian Government without duty to the Voice of Tigers but also exercised their powers in government to strengthen the LTTE militarily during the pact signed with the LTTE in February 2002. The loss to the nation is well known to the people of Sri Lanka . There is not a single family in Sri Lanka who was not affected by the unholy alliance of the UNP and LTTE, which ruined most of the men, women and children in Sri Lanka .

We the Canadian Tamils for Peace and Democracy urge the Tamil community to vote for President Mahinda Rajapakse, a leader who stood firmly against all international pressure and brought terrorism to an end in our motherland. Mahinda Rajapakse is a leader who freed thousands of Tamils from the Vanni regime and showed a new path to Peace and Democracy. He is a President who saved our beloved children from the LTTE clutches, removed their cyanide capsules and relieved them from becoming suicide bombers. Give the President another chance to develop the North and East to regain our past glory. Let us become once again the most educated community and stronger business community and become the back bone of our Nation.

Let us all live together with our Muslim and Sinhala brothers as one family.

To achieve all our dreams let us unite together and vote for a President who has the ability to make this happen. Vote for President Mahinda Rajapakse.

Defeat the unholy alliance of Terrorist TNA (Tamil National Alliance alias Terrorist National Alliance) and the communal UNP.

Defeat separatism. Defeat Mr. Sarath Fonseka.

Every Vote to President Mahinda Rajapakse is a vote for Peace.

Every Vote for Mr.Sarath Fonseka is vote for Piece (Division of Sri Lanka).
