A deliberate false translation of its constitution is the reason the Ilankai Tamil Arasu Katchi — the main constituent of the Tamil National Alliance — is being portrayed as a party that stood for secession of the Tamil parts from Sri Lanka, said TNA leader and MP M A Sumanthiran yesterday.

In a conversation with The Hindu, he said the sworn affidavit filed in the Supreme Court — the constitution of the party — which is in Tamil, was translated into English wrongly by a certified translator.

This could only be done with motive; he said and added that the ITAK did not stand for a separate Tamil and a separate Muslim State in Sri Lanka.
