    She`s biased in a way. I hear that her father was killed as a result of this conflict. When something like that happens, you can`t blame them being biased.

    Jack,

    I dont think her father died (atleast not in fighting).

    [ I dont think her father died (atleast not in fighting). ]

    I`ve heard otherwise. Some Tamil friends of mine here in the UK told me so, in fact they themselves, who are moderates in regards to the ethnic conflict, say that she`s a bit biased as a result of this.

    [But I am afraid it`s something that could get me killed]

    Had she been in Sri Lanka then too she would have been probably MIA!!

    This is all part of acting out her persona of some bullshit freedom fighter/rebel in a lawless land. this sort of stuff is very romantic for her target audience and they eat it up. its all about selling records and making money.

    So what. Pillion was/is in LTTe. Yet MR made him the CM in the east. Karuna was/is in the LTTE he got a VIP passport with a sinhala name. VP was/is still LTTE leader but MR has a secret pact with him.
