LOS ANGELES: The local Sri Lankan community has cautioned the Grammy organizers over Sri Lankan Tamil rapper M.I.A and has urged them not to allow her to use that event to glorify the Tamil Tigers. Mathangi "Maya" Arulpragasam better known by her stage name M.I.A., is a British songwriter, record producer, vocalist and artist. Mathangi "Maya" Arulpragasam was born in Hounslow, London, the daughter of Kala and Arul Pragasam. Her family is of Tamil descent.

When she was six months of age, her family moved back to their native Sri Lanka. Motivated by his wish to support the Tamil militancy on the island, her father became a political activist, adopting the name Arular, and was a founding member of The Eelam Revolutionary Organisation of Students (EROS), a terrorist Tamil group that worked to establish an independent Tamil Eelam. Her alias, M.I.A., stands for both Missing in Acton and Missing in Action. Many of her songs are of a political nature that glorify the the Tamil Tigers and their so called "Freedom Struggle". She is also known to hijack public events to glorify the LTTE terrorists.

The war is in its final stage and President Rajapakse is right in not calling for a ceasefire. The final solution to this is only a military one that calls for the total annihilation of the Tigers...there is no scope for negotiations.

Prabhakaran is on the run like a hunted warthog and the LTTE is holed up in a tiny area using the local civilian population as human shields. Like all wars this too has taken its toll on the civilian population and the Tamils need to understand that it's the LTTE that brought this upon them and not the SLA or the SL Govt.As for the support by the political parties in Tamil Nadu and the Tamils in India, they need to understand that this is an internal matter of Sri Lanka. Every country has the right to defend and protect its unity and integrity…and Sri Lanka is doing all it takes to prevent the North from secession.

It was these very political parties (the various DMKs) that greeted the Indian Peace Keeping Force (IPKF) with placards saying "ITKF not IPKF'. ITKF stand for Indian Tamil Killing Force.These are the same very people who condemn Pakistan for its support to secessionist movements in India saying that India's unity and integrity is in danger. What about the unity and integrity of Sri Lanka. Why do they have such double standards.

Whilst they are screaming their lungs off to protest Pakistan backed terrorist groups operating in India they have no qualms about supporting another terrorist group that is perhaps the most dangerous of them all. It was the LTTE that started the concept of suicide bombings, one of which killed former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.
