    I am not that keen on listening to Nirmal Ranjith Dewasri. He is one of those who justified the LTTE’s traditional homeland (so-called Tamil Eelam) during the war. Over 20 years ago in a TV interview, he called the Sri Lankan military mercenaries and said that the LTTE cadres were fighting for a cause. Towards the end of the war when Sri Lankan troops were about to finish off the Tigers he was among those who demanded that the war be stopped immediately. His mindset again proves that academic achievements and wisdom are not the same
