are you trying to say the peace talks should go on while there is a full scale war
The IC only knows how it was trying to arrange the peace talks. Certainly, peace talks will make more sense when there is no fighting.
could you please tell me how many Muslim constituencies are there in the east
What do you mean Muslim constituencies?
Abdul salaam , you want to hear what is sweet to your ears. :)) living is lot better than
getting shot?( I'm talking in terms of the civilian casualties)
Do you want to hear what is not sweet to your ears?
The statement you made was not only irresponsible but also insensitive.
OK, you at one stage told me that you wanted to be
recognized as a Muslim, not as Tamil or sinhalese but MUSLIM.
I still do and I will always do, God Willing
again Abdul salaam, you wanted to hold the Muslim identity and you do not want
the north and east merged as one province.
in what ground , you oppose to that proposal? so again, you are as a Muslim what the solution
you would like to propose? if you do not know, you should not oppose the merger of the
north and east , am i right Abdul salaam?
As I have said more than once earlier, I am opposed to the merger of the North & East because it is blatantly unjust for Tamils who are less than 10% of the population to have control of one-third the land and two-third the coast of a small country like Sri Lanka. Secondly, Non-Tamils in the East are the majority and how can they be forced to become under a Tamil Administration? It becomes even more unacceptable when the Tamils of the East are also against the merger.
Is it just and fair that the East should be merged only because it is the demand of the Terrorists from the North?
A major debate on solution is whether the North and East should be merged. On this point I have clearly explained my position.
What form a solution should take is a matter for discussion. This will essentially involve devolution of powers where I have no fixed ideas on the extent or type of devolution. On this, there is a plethora of opinion from all sides but even the All Parties Committee could not agree on its final report. So, this vexed problem has to be resolved through discussion.
I hope I have made myself clear and there is no further need to go over this again and again.
