The article is ill timed and falls squarely in the category that the GOSL would not allow it to be printed otherwise. Where was this indignation of the Times when JR took out a march to scuttle the CHelva / Banda accord. Where were you when the rights of all the Tamils were systematically eroded over the years? Where were you when Isaipriya was arrested gang raped by the SLA and killed? Thousands of women being coerced by your SLA tl this day? Where were you when the Tamil lands have been forcefully taken from them? The US soldiers don't gang rape helpless women and systematically grab lands.
