Meet The People Behind Tamil “People-Power”

Tamil Spring Color Revolution? Massive Protests Against Bull-Taming Ban”

In my earlier post on the subject, I mentioned that the Jallikattu protests (like the Jallikattu ban itself) seemed to be a well-organized effort, not a spontaneous outpouring.

In the first place, the constant signalling by the major media that it was “MakkalMovement,” (Makkal means people in Tamil), people-power, undirected, and spontaneous, sounded like propaganda.

Second, the epicenter of the protest was at Marina Beach in Chennai, the site of earlier Dravidian and Tamil identity protests, showing that this was a choreographed event, not happenstance.

The black outfits and flags deliberately hearkened back to the black-shirts of  early Dravida politics.

Third, the Jallikattu protest was led from the start by the urban, the young, the and sophisticated, whereas Jallikattu itself is a rural and traditional sport.

The spokesmen have been tech-savvy relatively affluent student groups, hardly representative of an uprising of rural cattle farmers.

The J-movement in fact sounds and feels like a well-funded and organized political movement.

And so it is.

From the Hindustan Times, comes a report naming the leaders of the Jallikattu uprising, which, contrary to the media, was first planned more than 3 years ago in 2013.

The starting point was a Chennai professional and bull owner with rural roots – Himakiran Alagula.

In 2013, Alagula contacted P. Rajasekharan of the Tamil Nadu Jallikattu Federation, who had been fighting for the practice for a decade.

Karthikeya Sivasenaapathy, the managing trustee of the Senaapathy Kangayam Cattle Research Foundation near Tirupur joined the team.

The founder of that institution, Kuttapalyam K. N. Saminathan was chairman of the livestock development committee of the TN government for over a decade, an MLA (Member of the Legislative Assembly or lower house of the state government), and an appointee of former TN Chief Minister and founder of the Dravidian identity movement in its current form, C. N. Annadurai.

Once a protege of Annadurai, the charismatic Lankan-born Tamil actor, M.G. Ramachandran used his enormous popularity with the masses to split the Tamil identity party – the DMK (Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam or Society for the Advancement of  Dravidians)  and create the Anna DMK, using Anna’s name to propel the movement into a personality cult with a humane face.

It was also under MGR rule, a band of criminals was transformed into a Tamil liberation army (Tamil Tigers), with the assistance of Mossad.

Also under MGR, Tamil Nadu devolved into a corrupt police-state.

This transformation speeded up with MGR’s mistress and former co-star, Jayalalitha, who by the time of her death was regarded as a mother goddess- Amma.

Amma, as I pointed out earlier, is a form of Shakti, the consort of Shiva and Shiva, misconstrued as Lucifer is the presiding “deity” of the New World Order.

Thus, the original atheistic,  iconoclastic, rationalistic, anti-Brahmin Tamil movement of E.V. Ramaswamy, whom the British empire originally cultivated to break up the unity of the nascent Indian state through a false opposition of Aryan and Dravidian concocted by imperial apologists, was transformed in a few decades into a popular, religious and semi-mystical cult headed by a Karnataka-born and English convent school-bred Brahmin grand-daughter of a physician to Mysore royalty.

Jayalalitha, moreover, was brought up when young by her maternal grandparents, one of whom worked for Hindustan Aeronautics, an Indian government-owned aerospace corporation with a long history of collaboration with US defense contractors like Boeing and Lockheed Martin, which have extensively documented ties with the  intelligence agencies.

Even Annadurai, the recipient of a Yale Chubb fellowship, was hosted by the US state department,  which suggests that globalist attempts to erode Indian sovereignty through the southern state, have been continuous and long-standing.

Thus, to read that behind the “leaderless” Jallikattu protests is a protege of one of the pillars of Dravidian identity politics is to realize that the current Jallikattu protests very likely mask another face of globalist intervention in India.

The purported MakkalMovement was also joined by someone described in the Hindustan Times article as a “businessman” from Coimbatore, Balakumar Somu.

Somu shows up on the pages of the Vijayvaani website which styles itself an “internet based public opinions forum” giving a niche for independent journalism. The site is copyrighted from 2008-2013 and has a registered office at 300 Gulmohar Enclave, New Delhi. There are articles by left-wing dissident journalists like James Petras and libertarian right dissidents like Paul Craig Roberts. Both just fit into the spectrum of allowed dissent in the West and are prominent voices therein, again providing another Western link.

Somu describes himself as follows:

The author is an IT professional, animal rights activist, freelance photographer and active blogger. He is pro-active in defence of Jallikattu, a sport with over 4000 years of recorded history.”

On  Jallikattu.in, which he appears to have founded, Somu is described as an “IT professional” with “wide ranging experience in India and abroad.”

This constitutes another foreign angle to the story.

The pro-J group went on to get the backing of something called the Biodiversity Conservation Council of India, which calls itself a non-profit public charitable trust and describes its mission as bringing about the goals of the United Nations, one of the premier tools of the globalist elites:

BiCCI seeks to legally revive and promote events of bio-cultural significance like Jallikattu, Rekla Race, traditional cattle/livestock shandys, Kambala, Bailgada and conduct bio cultural events under the aegis of United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity NCBD. BiCCI strives to support rural folk including women, women’s self-help groups, tribals, who rear native breeds of cattle, train them to produce cattle by-products and provide marketing support to them.

BiCCI intends to work with the Convention on United Nations convention on biological diversity, bringing together various organisations working for the conservation of native cattle of India and “to promote the “National biodiversity act 2002”.

The team at Biodiversity Conservation Council of India includes the following individuals:

  1. Srinivas Ratnasami, a prominent Madras High Court lawyer and dog-breeder who advises the Kennel Club of India.
  2. Karthikeya Sivasenapathy, Board of Managers at TN Agricultural University at Coimbatore and managing trustee at Senapathy Kangayam Cattle Research  Foundation
  3.  Balakumar Somu, a former IT consultant from Singapore, now resident in Coimbatore, and founder of Activists for Righteous Harmony of Animals Movement (AHRAM), a blogger, and photographer.
  4. Himakiran Anugula, an entrepreneur and advocate of sustainable, organic and local practices.
  5. Saravana Kumar, an engineer who owns a construction company and several farms, resident in Madurai.
  6. Raja Marthandan, a serial entrepreneur and aficionado of organic farming and native cattle species.
  7. Sundar Ganesan, Director/Trustee at Roja Muthiah Research Library, with an interest in archival work and the preservation of heritage. The Roja Muthiah Research Library, one of the best private collections of Tamil publications has been preserved at Chennai with the help of grants  from the U.S. Department of Education, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Ford Foundation along with collaboration from the Wellcome Institute for the History of Medicine

The website is dated 2017 and 4/7 of the members seem to be the same people behind the pro-Jallikattu movement, so one wonders if the BiCCI has a substantial presence outside this particular web-page and this particular issue.

Under the tab CAMPAIGNS, one finds a few tweets about Jallikattu and nothing more, which suggests that BiCCI is simply a PR effort intended to create the impression of a substantial Indian body behind pro-Jallikattu activism.

I could be wrong, but the evidence so far suggests that a very worthy cause (the viability of Indian cattle breeds) is being used as a vehicle for Tamil identity politics intended either to revive the fortunes of the Tamil parties…..or to co-opt it for some other purpose…

Perhaps that purpose is a diversion from the dire consequences of demonetization on the informal sector.

Or it could be that the protests and ensuing commotion enable some other infiltration, or will justify intervention from the Center.

In any case, things are not as they seem.
