Rajiv Gandhi's killers released from jail, will the LTTE, which sheds rivers of blood in Sri Lanka, be alive again? – Morning Express
Former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated on 21 May 1991 in a suicide bomb attack during a public meeting at Sriperumbudur in Tamil Nadu. This massacre, which shook the whole country, was carried out by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam or LTTE, which was fighting for freedom at that time in Sri Lanka. The LTTE is believed to have carried out the deadly attack to avenge Rajiv Gandhi’s decision to send peacekeeping troops to Sri Lanka in 1987, in which the former prime minister lost his life. 1200 soldiers of India lost their lives during the war in Sri Lanka. After this India was forced to withdraw its troops.
That precious piece of land, which Indira Gandhi gifted to Sri Lanka, now demands to be taken back from the Modi government
There was a bloody conflict between the Sri Lankan army and the LTTE for decades.
After this, there was a fiercely bloody conflict between the Sri Lankan army and the LTTE for almost two decades. With the help of lethal weapons from China and Pakistan, the Sri Lankan army crushed the LTTE. The Sri Lankan army was accused of serious human rights violations in the final days of the fighting. The Rajapaksa brothers of Sri Lanka were criticized all over the world for this. Now many LTTE supporters are active all over the world and trying to revive this bloody movement. Even after the release of Rajiv Gandhi’s killers, questions are being asked whether LTTE will be alive again or not. Meanwhile, experts believe that the LTTE is over and it will never rise again.
According to experts, the LTTE will still continue to make a mark on the minds of Tamils and non-Tamils alike. Those who were supporters of LTTE or those who suffered at the hands of LTTE will continue to remember him. LTTE had shed so much blood on the land of Sri Lanka that people still shudder remembering it. At the same time, some Tamils living abroad believe that another LTTE is needed to complete the unfinished mission of the LTTE. They want India to help in this. However, this idea of his is nothing more than a daydream. He said that one of the major reasons behind the birth of LTTE in Sri Lanka was that the Tamils here felt isolated. This was the time when Sri Lanka did not have the powerful army that it has now.

He said that in his early days, LTTE commander Velupillai Prabhakaran and his allies used to flee to Tamil Nadu whenever the problems in Sri Lanka increased. Seeing this struggle of Prabhakaran, many people joined him. During the anti-Tamil protests in Colombo in 1983, Tamil militants fled to Tamil Nadu. He got training in India. In today’s context, this is not the case now. Sinhala influence is still high in Sri Lanka and some Tamils are not happy with it, yet it is not enough to revive the LTTE. Not only this, the LTTE had committed atrocities on many Tamils, which the victims have not forgotten even today. The LTTE tried to kill all those who helped the Sri Lankan government. LTTE had declared such people traitors.
Al Qaeda attacks from LTTE, Ukraine is also using it
When the LTTE leader was cutting the birthday cake of his children, many Tamil children were being thrown into the fire of war. These are the reasons that now the LTTE is dead in Sri Lanka and cannot be revived. Vinayagamurthy, one of Prabhakaran’s bodyguards and later commander, also believed that there is no such circumstance and no condition which will lead to the birth of the LTTE again. People are fed up with violence and that is why there is no chance of another LTTE being born. LTTE was such a terrorist group from which later Islamic terrorist groups like Al Qaeda learned a lot. The LTTE’s methods of suicide attacks were heavily used by al-Qaeda. Today, the Ukrainian army is also using these methods to attack Russia. However, the rebirth of the LTTE itself is no longer possible.
