Tamils to Obama: Please Don’t Forget Us When You Talk With Modi, and Include Jayalalithaa and Her Suggested Referendum in Your Discussions

New Delhi, India (PRWEB) September 12, 2014

“Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is coming to the US to call on you this month,” began the letter that Tamils for Obama wrote to the president this week.

“Modi will probably want to talk about regional security, economic matters between India and the US, and international terrorism,” the letter went on. “We hope you and PM Modi will find time to discuss matters involving the Tamils in Sri Lanka.”

“We named a few of the reasons we think Tamil matters cry out for attention,” said the Tamils for Obama press spokesman. “We wrote the president ‘Tamils in Sri Lanka are suffering. The armed forces are seizing Tamil properties–homes, farms, lands, and businesses are being taken and transferred to Sinhalese citizens. Cultural objects like Hindu temples are being uprooted and replaced by Buddhist temples. Sexual violence against single and widowed Tamil women by the Sri Lankan armed forces has become rampant. Unexplained disappearances with no legal recourse for families of vanished persons are common. The white vans of paramilitary organizations are a frightening daily phenomenon.

‘The Tamil population is scared of the Sinhalese army. This creates an intolerable and unsustainable situation which cannot and will not endure; unrest and disorder are the least of what may be expected.’

“These conditions will lead to bad results,” said the spokesman. “If the storm doesn’t come soon, it will come later. We are urging the two leaders to take action now.”

The letter continued “We hope that you and the Indian Prime Minister will discuss ways to solve these persistent problems. We expect that you and Mr. Modi will include Jayalalithaa in your discussion. She is the Chief Minister of the southernmost Indian state of Tamil Nadu. She is the best informed and most involved Indian leader in Tamil matters, and perhaps the most influential and popular. In the past Jayalalithaa has proposed a referendum among the Tamils in the northeast of Sri Lanka and the displaced Tamils in the Tamil diaspora. This referendum will establish their wish for their political future.”

The letter concluded “The answer to all of the Tamils’ problems is probably an independent and self-protecting Tamil state. If the Tamil-inhabited provinces continue to be ruled by Colombo, all of these problems will continue into the future for as far as we can see. If an independent Tamil state exists, the Tamils will be able to protect themselves and solve their own problems. Everything rests on separation.”

Tamils for Obama is a politically active group of Tamil Americans. They believe that over 70,000 Tamil civilians were massacred during the last weeks of the Sri Lankan ethnic war. They have also watched the behavior of the Sri Lankan Singhalese victors after the war, and strongly conclude that Tamils in Sri Lanka will only be safe when this unfortunate island is divided into two states.

To contact the group, call at (516) 308-2645 and speak to, or leave a message for, the Communication Director, Tamils for Obama.

SBPRA Announce the Release of its Newest Title, “Apostle Paul’s Case: The Root of the Lie We Have Been Told for 2000 Years” by Author F.P. Josh

(PRWEB) August 13, 2014

“Apostle Pauls Case: The Root of the Lie We Have Been Told for 2000 Years” is an eye opener and is a must-read for anyone wishing to truly understand the Bible and follow Jesus Christ in truth.

Could it be that the turbulent times of today stem from the false teachings by Paul the Apostle in the first century? The world is now paying the price for these lies, and is being punished for following Pauls teachings, rather than the original laws prescribed in the Old Testament.

F.P. Josh takes a look back at the time of Jesus, as well as the conflicts between the teachings of Paul and Apostle Peter. Using scripture, the author makes the case that Paul changed some of the laws handed down by God in the Old Testament, and twisted the teachings of Jesus to suit his own purposes. Josh states that Paul changed his personal story many times to keep himself from running afoul of local Jewish priests and the Roman Empire, yet he is responsible in part for 14 of the 27 books in the New Testament. The authors asks, “Is it too late to turn from these teachings to save the world or ourselves?”

About the Author

F.P. Josh was born on March 3, 1976 in West Africa. He began his journey as a Christian in his early twenties. After earning his general certificate of education, he eventually moved to the United States to continue his education in business administration at Bellevue University in Nebraska. After problems with finances prevented continuing his education, he began to fall away from his faith. It started with clubs and women, moved to bank robbery, and eventually to international smuggling. The author was eventually caught and placed in prison on August 12, 2002. There he began to attend services for the inmates and found his way back to his faith. It was during this time that he had the revelation, and the Holy Spirit led him to write several books. Now F.P Josh is the managing director of his own company.
