    If there is a bend in the beginning it will bend the whole - Tamil proverb.

    Sinhala ONLY Act was forced on Tamil speaking minorities thus creating an ethnic discord.

    Transporting Maradana thugs in 4 lorries to Batticaloa to burn and bomb Tamil businesses and houses were to drive a wedge between the Muslim and Tamil communities.

    Arming Karuna /Pillaiyan Group is to encorage the group to attack Muslims to create strain between the communities.

    Even the EPC election was intended to create tension by primising Chief Minister post to both Pillaiyan and Hisbullah instead of letting democracy determine who it is.

    [Jathika Hela Urumaya told media today that they are against the idea of giving powers to the Eastern Provincial Council.]

    [The president and the government should seek the opinion of the Sinhala councilors in deciding a chief minister for the Eastern Provincial Council, the Jathika Hela Urumaya has said.]

    [The SLMC Leader Rauff Hakeem said that the appointment of Pillayan as the Chief Minister of the Eastern Provincial Council was the plan of the Government well before the East elections, and accused Muslim Ministers saying that they took this long to understand this fact.]

    United we stand as a Nation and devided we fall as a Nation. We are certainly not united as a Nation and we can see how the Nation is falling amidst disunity!

    Hisbullah does not have `military clout`, like Pillaiyan .. but he wants to be CM. (He likes to have a `hand` in the disbursements of moneys/funds, positions & posts etc). Feel sure, these `needs` could be accommodated ..

    Let Pillaiyan `maintain the PEACE` .. so necessary for Developmental Work in the Eastern Province to continue ..

    Detach the `Commercial` angle (of Developmental Programs) from Pillaiyan`s control to a sufficient degree .. so that Hisbullah`s `needs` are met. (For instance Hisbullah could have prime `say` in developmental works in Muslim areas).

    The ordinary people of the East will decide the political fate of all Eastern PC member`s who can`t respect the mandate of the people and work for the people in the East to the best of their abilities.
