Muttiah Muralitharan's brother 'overjoyed' at the Tamil Tigers' defeat

Another point which proves that this war in Sri Lanka was never a Tamil vs Sinhalese conflict. It was Sri Lanka Vs Tamil Tigers, as I have always maintained.

Tamils served in the government, Lakshman Kadirgamar was pretty close to becoming the first Tamil Prime Minister of Sri Lanka. The Tamil Tigers put an end to that when Prabhakaran ordered his assassination.

Muttiah Muralitharan (Murali) is a national hero in Sri Lanka. Loved by one and all. He is a Tamil and is the highest wicket taker in Test Cricket and ODI Cricket. His brother recently spoke to the Mumbai based Indian publication the Mid Day.

Muttiah Sasidaran (Mid-day.com)

Murali's brother Muttiah Sasidaran said from Colombo, "Obviously we are happy, in fact, overjoyed. This is a great victory for the country and the entire nation is celebrating. This triumph will bring economic growth for us, spur investment and prove a catalyst for development," Sasidaran added, saying, "The future is bright for Sri Lanka."

We are all proud of Murali. We don't care if he is Tamil. We don't care about his race or ethnic origin. We love him for the beautiful person he is. We love him. His brother is right. The best thing for all the people in Sri Lanka has happened.

Now we can see everyone even Tamils living a good life. All guns silenced.

I am a Tamil. I too am overjoyed. How can you operate a business when the whole country is at war. Tigers didnt fight for my freedom? They said they were but what freedom did they offer me? They only killed people and wanted a seperate state.

I wonder why more Tamils in Sri Lanka don't voice their views. I know before they were afraid the Tigers would kill them but now? More people should talk about what they really feel now.

Not only Tamils but everyone waited for the end of the LTTE. How can our kids go to school when these people blow up buses and trains?

Well said Muttiah!

If you are a journalist, this is not the story you want. Just not as sensational ass allegations of mass murder, genocide and rape.

Not one sky reporter or channel4 journalist spoke to a moderate Tamils who is not connected to any political party or terror group.

Maybe cos they've learned the hard way that it's best to keep your head down and don't cause a scene? Maybe they're not as optimistic about the future of SL as others, or maybe they're scared of Mahinda & co and what SL leadership might turn into in the future?

That's the general ignorance portrayed by people who live outside of Sri Lanka.

I am a Tamil, the reason I feel I dont need to speak out is because I think it's given that everyone knows the LTTE were terrorist and never my representatives.

I have voted since I was 18. I don't think I need to explain to anyone that the Tigers were against all people in Sri Lanka not just sinhalese.

I concur completely.

As a person who has witnessed the death of family and friends (both Tamil and Sinhalese) at the hand of bombs and assassins, I have come to treasure this sense of hope which has been infused into the country after the defeat of the LTTE.

As children who walked the streets rocked to the rhythm of bombs going off at every corner, my friends and I never understood the madness around us. As our generation only saw the bloodshed and were too young to be dragged into the reasons cited by those engaged in battle with each other. My generation played the role of the innocent bystander who was sucked into the consequences of the war. Despite all these old scars, as brother Muttiah says, this time is one to move forward and actually enjoy some economic growth which would enable us to leave this country in better shape than when we had it, for our future generations. Let those little ones who emerge in the years to come only be able to hear fire crackers at festivals and never, ever hear another bomb again.

To you my diverse yet united band of brothers and sisters - stand tall, stand proud. We and our little island nation will emerge from the ashes as a new phoenix. Our individual goals are but, a drop in the ocean of our human family. Despite our myriad of cultural differences, we are all at the end of the day Sri Lankans.

I am a Tamil too. I can see positive change in Sri Lanka already. As a Tamil I don't feel as much scrutiny at checkpoints and stuff. Things are changing for the better people. Be hopeful. Its better than supporting terrorist.

This is real bull shit. Tamils were scared to voice their opinion of the Tigers perviously but now the Government of Sri Lanka is just the same. The goverment is preventing feedom of speech, its simply eliminating those that oppose it.

Anon above. Dont talk through your ass. Last week all the media were all out against the police force and their abductions. Never heard you complain about "freedom" bullshit then.

I bet you anything you dont even live in Sri Lanka. I do.

I am an Indian Tamil and have absolutely no use for LTTE either. But to state that this was just a tigers vs sinhalese conflict is simply ridiculous. Time and time again, Sinhalese have denied basic rights to tamils and the problems tamils have faced are real. Still, I am glad the terrorist organization that was responsible for several murders (including a former PM of India) has been eliminated.

naastik. Time and time again? You have no clue of Sri Lankan history. The ONLy time 'Tamil rights' ever came into question was when the Sinhalese only law came about. But you fools forget Sri Lanka's muslims consider their mother tongue Tamil. So it was not just tamil rights but muslims' rights too. But fuck that right? Your a fool.

MUSLIM RIGHTS !!!!!! terrorist speaks about terrorism....

Rajapakhse is another Hitler in the making . His entire family is now living of Srilankan politics. Soon he will make a new amendment in the constitution that would make him president for life. People say he is a Hero . But how can someone who brands his own country men as enemies and then kill them be a Hero ? Anyway , those who live by the sword , will also die by one .

I am glad the tigers are history just wish the present regime in Sri Lanka were history too.

What Sri Lanka needs now is a true liberal, cival society with freedom of the press and judiciary and no one filling the government with their own relations! 130 relatives at last count!
