Rajendran Raja Mahendran who owns Sirasa, TV, MTV, Sirasa
Radio ,Shakthi TV and radio lives in Sri Lanka even though he is a
holder of dual citizenship. When one carefully analyzes his
activities it will not be a surprise to assume that he is directly or
indirectly helping the separatist terrorists.
His business empire was nourished by the then UNP Government under JRJ
and Ranasinghe Premadasa. He was also close to the President
Chandrika . His present wife and children live in the UK and therefore
Raja Mahendran can be considered as a Sri Lankan citizen only for
business purposes (?) His sister's husband is N.Satyendra who is a
lawyer living in the UK . He is a LTTE activist and his home in London
is well known as a centre for LTTE activities. He is a senior legal
advisor to the LTTE. According to investigations by the financial
authorities in Sri Lanka Raja Mahendran credits 20% of the profits
earned by him to an account maintained under Satayendra which is
presumed to be a front of the TRO according to the investigators.
It was according to a master plan of the LTTE that the Maharajah took
action to get into the media industry in Sri Lanka . It's role was to
create a mindset to accept the LTTE terrorist outfit and to
popularize 'peace' with the LTTE .At the last Presidential elections
Tamil section of this media group supported the TNA and Rauff Hakkem's
politics and did their best to paint Sri Lankan major political groups
as enemies of the minorities. The group gave a lot of prominence to
the Norwegian peace merchants and their efforts to equate the LTTE and
the Sri Lankan Government. Raja Mahandran, the owner of the group acts
like a terrorist who is always attempting to change his living
quarters and also the appearance.
His next major move is to start a channel to broadcast news throughout
the day. He is trying to use a frequency he obtained during Chandrika
government. He is planning to import and use a helicopters for this
purpose. With his leanings to the separatist terrorist movement it
will pause a direct threat to the national security if this man and
the group is given the approval to air a 24 hour news channel.
Recently when a Police Officer was released by the LTTE , it was only
this group who was able to broadcast the incident. In reporting the
release Mahendran's outfit did their best to white wash the LTTE We
have to ask why did the LTTE provide this facility to Maharajah group
or why did the LTTE extend a welcome to this media group.? In the
final analysis the objectives of the both institutions- the LTTE and
Mehandran's media- are found to be identical in that creation of a
separate state for 8% of the Tamils in Sri Lanka under Prabhakaran
gets the top priority.
With the use of vast funds in the group the Mahandran had been able to
have his henchmen in many Government organizations including the
Police Department. Very often when the Police organizes raids always
the Sirasa or Shakthi media is there to cover the events live and tell
the viewers that their media is the first to cover important events.
Recently in the Parliament Mr Wimal Weerawansa bared another ruse
operated by this group of using their contacts in the Parliament staff
to air live proceedings of the sessions and special occasions without
It will be useful to investigate whether Raj Mahendran's group is
operating with the funds of their own or is receiving funds from other
Have we investigated the circulation of billions of rupees owned by
the LTTE and their fronts in Sri Lanka ?
Isn't the attempt by Raja Mahendran to practically monopolize the
media in Sri Lanka connected to the LTTE agenda ?
Should the country allow the terrorists and their supporters to make
use of country's broadcasting rights to exploit the hearts and minds
of Sri Lankans?
Should the Government allow this organizations to put up transmission
facilities in every hill top , some located in strategic places?
Are we blind to allow this media organization to mislead our young
people and make them an easy pray for the LTTE political ambitions?
