"The LTTE is believed to be planning to establish their international network centre to be based in Malaysia," the newspaper said, adding that the strengthening of Sri Lanka's diplomatic mission in Kuala Lumpur was a result of this intelligence.
Malaysia, may not be the only Southeast Asian country where the LTTE, banned as a terrorist organization by some 30 countries including India, is likely to set up support bases or revive dormant links for a different kind of war.
This would happen whether or not Prabhakaran survives the military offensive. The LTTE has lost not just territory but several top commanders since President Mahinda Rajapaksa's government decided to carry the fight to the enemy three years ago, after six months of absorbing Tiger attacks.
Why Malaysia is attractive to LTTE?
Because the country's 7.1 percentage are of Indian origin and the majority is Tamils. Tamil is one of the recognized languages in Malaysia. LTTE’ research found out that Malaysia can be a fertile ground for the kind of terrorist activities that they were conducting in Sri Lanka. The situation in Tamil (both people and language) is sad in Malaysia and are suppressed and oppressed by the Malaysian government - as written by Tamilnation.org.
The Tamils in Malaysia especially those of Indian origin have begun agitating for their civic rights. I had written an article - attached below - in the mid nineties during a visit to Malaysia. I was shocked at the way that non Malays - especially those of Indian and Eelam origin were treated. And I was saddened by the way these Malaysians of Indian and Eelam origin accepted the open discrimination of their government. I had the opportunity of meeting very highly educated and wealthy Malaysians of Eelam origin during the visit. When I pointed to them about their unconditional support for the racist policies of the Malaysian government, they laughed at me and told me that it was the Eelam Tamils who were real fools. They pointed out that had the Eelam Tamils followed their policies - accepting political discrimination for economic concessions the Tamils of Eelam would not be in their present sorry state. (
Even the Tamils Malaysia started protesting against discrimination in 2007.

In addition to this there is “historical” evidence that Malaysia was a Tamil Kingdom before. So it is the moral and cultural responsibility of LTTE to reclaim the lost part of "Eelam".
There were numerous Chinese and Indian kingdoms in the 2nd and 3rd centuries CE—as many as 30 according to Chinese sources. Kedah—known as Kedaram, Cheh-Cha (according to I-Ching) or Kataha, in ancient Pallava or Sanskrit—was in the direct route of invasions of Indian traders and kings. Rajendra Chola, Tamil Emperor who is now thought to have laid Kota Gelanggi to waste, put Kedah to heel in 1025 but his successor, Vira Rajendra Chola, had to put down a Kedah rebellion to overthrow the invaders. The coming of the Chola reduced the majesty of Srivijaya, which had exerted influence over Kedah and Pattani and even as far as Ligor.
Looks like Malaysia has got a lot of homework to do in the coming days.
