Germany’s ‘Maveerar’ Day plans come under flak

German authorities have come under fire from terrorist critics for letting LTTE proxies to celebrate Maveerar Day (Heroes’ Day) in Berlin and several other cities saying that it is indirectly supporting terrorism.
Dr Udo Ulfkotte in an article published in German media says: “There is terror alarm all over Germany these days. The dome of the Reichstag in Berlin has been closed to visitors out of fear that it might become a terrorist attack target. The police presence near atomic-electricity power plants, railway stations and airports are enormously strengthened. And in the whole Federal Republic the police are not allowed to go on holidays, after all it is more important to fight terrorism now.”
He also says that while the Federal Republic functionaries responsible for the safety and security are on the lookout for terrorists, friends and members of the families of one of the terror groups which is forbidden in Europe, are celebrating joyfully in a town hall where there is space for 4,500 persons with great pomp, suicide bombers and a terrorist leader at the occasion of a ‘Heroes’ Day.’
“Do you think this is a joke? No, it is no joke. The City Dortmund has lent one of the largest halls officially for a meeting of the supporters of a group that has been officially listed and forbidden as a terrorist group by the European Union.”
The Helmut Koernig Hall in the City of Dortmund is a part of the Olympia base of Westfalen. The hall accommodates up to 4,500 spectators and is often used for athletic sports events. On November 28, 2010, a Sunday (and the first Advent) there will be Heroes’ Day celebrations.
“Quite likely there will be praising of the suicide bombers and with the selling of tickets, souvenirs and food items they will be collecting money for a terror organisation that is forbidden in Europe. In the past years the authority for the protection of the constitution (Der Verfassungsschutz) of NRW has observed in this group at the occasions of similar events and in its report of 2009 it has written about this observation.
“Perhaps policemen of Nordrhein-Westfalia have even to have protect the big event of the forbidden organisation this year. The whole episode is totally crazy and it might take place in a far away banana republic, but not again in Dortmund. When you talk about terror suspects in Europe, then at once many think of Al Qaeda and the Islamic terrorists. But the world record of terrorist attacks is not found in the circles of those morose radical Muslims, but in the circle of the Sri Lankan Tamils of the organisation ‘Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam’ (LTTE),” he added in his article.
