News Update :

New Delhi should continue to push diplomacy rather than hostility

Monday, July 2, 2012

What happened during the brief visit of National Security Adviser Shivshankar Menon to Colombo, under the pretext of offering an "act in front of reconciliation" message, it is clear that New Delhi has decided to up the ante in Sri Lanka.

The recent vote in India for the US-backed resolution in the Human Rights Council against Lanka was an indication of that. There is growing space to believe that Colombo is not sincere about giving the Tamils ​​and other minorities because of their political rights.

Therefore, the inclusion of some trouble in their relationship with Colombo can not be out of place in New Delhi. But they must also continue to choose engagement over any or overt hostility.

A necessary balance between pushing on the Tamil question and diplomacy is the right approach. And that's not only offended by the Colombo has been to increase ties with other nations in the region, but also because palpable hardening stance of India will not serve the interests of Tamils ​​in Sri Lanka.

It may seem hard to understand why Lanka must fulfill its own promises of devolution of powers, that the 13th Amendment to the Constitution is concerned, and shy away from acting on the recommendations of its own commission after the war.

Could it be that the decisive military victory over the LTTE has led to a triumphalism that is a facet of Sinhala majoritarianism, which was the original cause of the decades-long struggle. Another reason is that the Rajapaksa clan, and is a true clandynasty by Sri Lanka, seeks to consolidate the Sinhalese chauvinism for political reasons.

Expressed in terms of nudity, Colombo wants to delude itself into thinking that the military victory over the LTTE murderous means the end of the Tamil question and the death of minority rights.

Therefore, it has transgressed and unarmed on the subject of work in a post-war resolution policy. This is simply shortsighted, to say the least.

So, instead of reacting with hostility, the better for New Delhi to push Colombo to realize his vision shortsighted, is not updated with the realities of the modern world.
