After the Mumbai terrorist attack India become so innocent and claiming all the time that Pakistan is the root cause of terrorism. Where as India self promoted terrorism in the sub-continent and created Civil War on Sri Lanka in 80s!

India became involved in the Civil War during the early 1980s when the Indian government supplied arms and funding to both the LTTE and its rival terrorist organisation, the Tamil Eelam Liberation Organisation, or TELO. It is thought that through arming both independence parties the Rajiv Ghandi's government sought to follow a 'divide and rule' strategy. Exerting control over the independence movement stood to gain India influence in Sri Lanka while quelling the calls of Tamils in India for a similar independent state.

On June 5th 1987 India stepped into a more active role. Jaffna, the capital of the Tamil-majority North province, was under siege by the Sri Lankan forces. There were claims that the government were on the verge of defeating the LTTE. In a direct move to help the rebels, the Indian Air Force dropped aid parcels into Jaffna weighing 25 tons in total.

Negotiations were soon held between Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi and Sri Lankan President Junius Richard Jayewardene, which lead to the signing of the Indo-Sri Lankan Peace Accord on July 29, 1987. The Sri Lankan government made a number of concessions to Tamil demands, including a devolution of power to the provinces, a merger of the North and East into one state, (invalidated in 2006) and the institution of Tamil as a national language. India, in return, was to cease aiding Tamil militants, and establish a peacekeeping force in the Tamil-majority area of Sri Lanka.

India remains an outside observer of the ongoing Civil War, with frequent calls from parliament members of the Tamil Nadu state for renewed Indian involvement, and especially for the extradition of LTTE leader Velupillai Prabhakaran.
