Today Sri Lanka is a country devastated by the bloody war, ravaged to scratch. People are suffering from hunger and war. No politicians seem to take action to prevent these burning issues. The country used to be the peal of Indian Ocean, now its garbage tin of Indian Ocean.
Almost 3 decades back, India was a friendly neighbor for LTTE. Today things have changed a lot. Even though many people in South Indian state Tami Nadu support for LTTE, Central government is not so keen on developing a relationship with LTTE.In early times, Sri Lankan government had a direct relationship with Chinese authorities, and India was looking for a space to enter into the political drama of the country. For India, they must have the full control over the countries in South Asia.
As the result they extended their support to LTTE and other rebel groups. Basically India had no interest in Tamil people of Sri Lanka. They just wanted to influence the political cloud of the country. They gave military equipments to LTTE, they gave training to LTTE and they asked them to fight against Sri Lankan government.
Here we can notice that even Taliban was enriched and nourished by US, later they happen to fight against them. In Sri Lanka also it happened, Later Indian government declared war on LTTE, but they couldn’t put on an end to LTTE.I personally think that India will never ever accept the separation in our region. First reason is it may be a bad signal for their regional & territorial integrity. In the other hand, if LTTE happen to establish an independent state, then Sri Lanka will make good relationship with china, and china will increase their influence in our region.
These are the two reasons why India never gonna support the separatism in this region. I don’t know what will happen in the future. We’ll hope for the best.
