Sri Lanka defeats the worlds number one terrorist organization. LTTE is no more..

Its hard to believe, but a few years back most of us thought that the 30 year old war with the LTTE which has been in this beautiful country would never come to an end within our life time. But its true.. The LTTE is no more.

Let me give an small introduction to what the LTTE is. "Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam"(LTTE) claims that it is the so called Liberators of Tamils and they are fighting for a separate homeland which will be named as "Eelam". The founder and leader of the LTTE is Velupillai Prabhakaran. He is responsible for the deaths of around 80,000 people. The LTTE is the organization which specialized and thought the world about Suicide Bombing. Its the only organization to assassinate two world leaders(Sri Lankan president - Ranasinghe Premadasa and Indian Prminister - Rajiv Gandhi). They Forcefully recruited child soldiers and maintained many torcher chambers. The LTTE has killed many tamil leaders in Sri Lanka so that they would be the only tamil voice. Many bombs have been set off in marketplaces, airports, buses, trains etc.. all over the country and thousands of innocent people have been killed.

This senseless war has made thousands of children loose their parents, thousands of wife's loose their husbands and thousands of parents loose their precious children. Tens of thousands of people have been made disabled for life by loosing their legs due to mines. People have lost their hearing and eye sight due to bombs by both sides. All for what??

The LTTE has forcefully recruited child soldiers and put the gun in their hands while the children of the leaders has been sent overseas and has been living luxurious lives. Eelam war 4 started after the LTTE blocked the Maavilaru sluice gates and denied water to the people living in that area. The government offensive to open this gate was the turning point for the defeat of the LTTE.

The Sri Lankan Defense forces which is the most disciplined and the best in the world has managed to rescue more than 200,000 people from the LTTE who was using them as human shields and crush the LTTE to its extinction. This has been possible because of the excellent leadership of President Mahinda Rajapaksa, Defence Secrateary Gotabaya Rajapaksa and the commandeering chiefs of the Army, Navy and Air force. The commitment,dedication, sacrifice of each and every solider and to all others who have been working behind the scenes in many different fronts to bring peace to Sri Lanka should be highly appreciated.

The so called International community (Mainly US and some European countries) who failed to atleast condemn in words the Holocaust by Israel where more than thousand Palestinians in Gaza were killed and many left homeless in 2008, on many occasions was pressuring the Sri Lankan government to stop the rescue mission and have a ceasefire. Past experience thought us that the only thing a cease fire would do is strengthen the LTTE and drag the senseless killing for another few years.

Many have died but finally the shedding of blood is over here and Sri Lanka is one free nation with many ethnicities living under one flag in harmony.

"The War is Over".

The logic behind a Muslim woman wearing Hijab explained in one picture.

This picture is a good example of Hijab. The image in the left represents a modest Muslim woman wearing the Hijab and the image on the right represents a woman not wearing the Hijab. And the flies are men ;)

One thing should be kept in mind. The Hijab is given the wider meaning of modesty, privacy, and morality. The hijab is not ment only for the women. Its also ment for the men as well. Infact in the Quran ALLAH speaks about the hijab for the men first and then for the women.

Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty: that will make for greater purity for them: And Allah is well acquainted with all that they do.
[Quran: Chapter-24, Verse-30]

And Say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husband's fathers, their sons, their husbands' sons, their brothers or their brothers' sons, or their sisters' sons, or their women, or the slaves whom their right hands possess, or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex; and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments. And O ye Believers! turn ye all together towards Allah, that ye may attain Bliss.
[Quran: Chapter-24, Verse-31]
