Tiger Supporters Boycotting Sri Lankan Airlines
Tiger Supporters Boycotting Sri Lankan Airlines – a Breath of Flat Air
London, 26 August
The Asian Tribune reliably learns that the sympathisers of the Tamil Tigers who are hell bent on destroying anything of Sri Lankan, have elevated their fight to air waves recently. They want expatriate Tamil community to boycott the national airline so that the government coffers are not filled with foreign cash. In other words, they want the government to be on its knees, as the former are forced to hold their tails between the hind legs.
The clarion call comes, as everything aired before for the purpose of ruining the Sri Lankan economy and the country’s image abroad, proved utterly futile. The uselessness of measures already taken by these cubs, now border on ridicule.
The world knows that the supporters of the Tamil Tigers draw energy from a bottomless pit, when it comes to agitation - which then easily evolves into nuisance; they don’t want to give up what they call the ‘struggle’ for obvious reasons – to keep funds flowing towards questionable characters which in turn make them super rich and guarantee living in comfort.
On the other hand, they are aware of the fact that their activities on foreign soil are under scrutiny as never before; moreover, the absence of all-powerful ‘Sun God’ makes it impossible to call for divine intervention when things go from bad to worse.
In these circumstances, the Tigers use clandestine methods to propagate the doctrine of hatred: the Hindu temples, social gatherings and even weddings are being used to brainwash the Tamil Community - about the need of boycotting the national airline.
However, the Tigers are ignorant to note the fact that the airline industry has been hit very badly by the current recession. Therefore, no alternative airline is in a position to address sentimental issues based on bigotry, as they have to run a business against very tough economic conditions.
Sri Lankan Airlines has won many an award for excellent customer service and many non Sri Lankans clamor to fly on this airline. It is a very convenient airline to fly to Colombo, with direct flights from London and some European countries. The aircrafts fly virtually full, all the time. In this light, this operation launched by the Tamil Tiger supporters also could be on its way to failure.
On the same token, can we say that Sri Lankan Airlines may not want Terrorists to fly with them, although they may not say it openly.
Tamils do not hold grudges or display hatred. Tamil terrorists and their supporters do!
The very high majority of peace loving Tamils will always be welcome to fly the Sri Lankan national carrier, for they too are Sri Lankan.
