I found this blog in the web and may be good to read if you were fooled by racist Tamils in the name of a separate homeland. The concept they bring here are mostly just fantasies made up to cheat specially the young generations.
The Concept of Tamil homeland in Sri Lanka is evidently a myth. Because of this mythical ideology, thousands of lives destroyed and communal harmony deteriorated. After 32 years of bloody terrorism, Sri Lanka is now slowly recovering. Although the war is over, this mythical concept still needs to be eliminated for a long lasting peace. Effort is made in this blog to gather articles that logically and scholarly provide evidence to educate people who believe in mythical `Tamil homeland` in Sri Lanka.
`Sri Lanka` it self is slowly recovering form its 3 decades old bloody wound and other countries have already started to pay attention on Sri Lanka.
What`s the meaning of Eelam?
Prof. Iyengar (Tamil scholar), in the preface he wrote to the `Ancient Jaffna` by Rasanayam (1962) rightly says, `Eelam is the ancient version of the Sinhala word Sihala or Sinhala. Therefore Eelam stands for the entirety of Ceylon`.
The Tamil historian, Rasanayagam (Tamil scholar), in his book `Ancient Jaffna` has said `Jaffna was occupied by Sinhalese earlier than by Tamils, is seen, not only in the place names but also in some of the habits and customs of the people.`
Definition of homeland according to online dictionaries is as follows:
`a state or area set aside to be a state for a people of a particular national, cultural, or racial origin`
Clarification: If you are a Tamil or Sinhalese individual born in Sri Lanka, yes, your homeland is of course Sri Lanka. However, if you are talking about homeland of Tamil or Sinhalese race, Sri Lanka is one and only one ancient homeland of Sinhalese` but Tamil`s. Tamil homeland is southern India where more than 60 millions of Tamils live.
