An old video of LTTE leader Prabhakaran answering in a press meet goes insanely viral in the micro blogging social media site now. Thiruvenkadam Velupillai Prabhakaran was the founder and leader of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (the LTTE or the Tamil Tigers), a militant organization that sought to create an independent Tamil state in the north and east of Sri Lanka.
By then, the LTTE also known as the Tamil Tigers controlled large swathes of land in the north and east of the country, running a de facto state with Prabhakaran serving as its leader. Peace talks eventually broke down, and the Sri Lanka Army launched a military campaign to defeat the Tamil Tigers in 2006.
In this video which was going insanely viral in social media platforms, shows Prabhakaran indirectly saying that International Police could not catch him at all. The video which shows a reporter asking Velu Prabhakaran’s stand on India requesting Interpol to arrest him.
“Regarding the Interpol, India has requested Interpol to arrest. What is you stand?” the reporter asked to which Prabhakaran replies with a subtle laugh. He can be heard saying “Ask them to talk about something possible”

According to sources, his fighters usually took no prisoners and were notorious for assaults that often left every single enemy soldier dead. Interpol described him as someone who was “very alert, known to use disguise and capable of handling sophisticated weaponry and explosives.
Film director Venkatesh Kumar G is making a biopic on Prabhakaran which is titled as Raging Tiger in which Bobby Simha is playing the role of Prabhakaran. The makers of the film released the first look poster and announced the title of the film on the eve of Prabhakaran’s birthday.
Reports also suggests that Prabhakaran was fascinated by Napoleon and Alexander the Great. He was also highly influenced by prominent Indian nationalists Subhas Chandra Bose and Bhagat Singh who fought the British Empire. Prabhakaran never developed a systematic philosophy, but did declare that his goal was ‘Revolutionary socialism and the creation of an egalitarian society’.
