Rajiv Gandhgi did not deserve to be killed. He was killed for frivolous reason. He supported the Govt of Srilanka against the rebellious and terrorist outfit LTTE which was trying all means to partition Srilanka. Just Khalistanis were trying to do in India. Just like what Muslim League successfully did and carved out Pakistan from a complete India. LTTE terrorists did not like Rajiv Gandhi for this and did what terrorists always do. Use a human bomb and killed him along with many innocents.

India pressurised SriLanka in 80s to settle Tamil Issue , There were dozens of Tamil group and PLOTE and EPLRF had more folllowing then LTTE which was more miltiartic. Elections were held in North-Eastern province of Sri Lanka and IPKF was sent by Rajiv Gandhi to oversee the disarmamemt of LTTE and other tamil groups. While other Tamil groups complied with the peace agreement LTTE tried sabotaging in order to gain absolute power.

Ransinghe Premdasa the new President of Sri Lanka was not happy with the accord Julious Jayawardhane ( previous president) has signed and IPKF was main hurdle. Premdasa's thinking was once IPKF is out he will not have any obligation to honor the peace accord and he can deal with LTTE on his own. LTTE also wanted arms to fight IPKF.
So in a secrete deal Premdasa and Sri lankan army reinforced thier one time rival LTTE.
So it was a strange war for IPKF with no clear mission and both the sides against.
Slowly IPKF was able to corner LTTE and Prabhakaran ne ...more

Though India won't admit this, if u visit International Relations institutes in Sri Lanka or any neutral country except India - u will find that Rajeev Ji's Mom- Smt. Indhira Ji, armed and supported the LTTE in order to prevent the US from signing an MoU w/ Sri Lanka for a naval base there. A US naval base was unacceptable to India and thus Indhira ji armed and prepped the LTTE.

AFter it became clear that the US was never going 2 come to South ASia 4 that base, her son, Mr. Rajeev Gandhi- simply pulled a U-turn and supported the Sri Lankan govt.

i don't think Mr. Rajeev deserved to die, and killing him was so erronious on behalf of the LTTE. I don't know why they killed Mr. Rajeev Gandhi even though they defeated the IPKF force itself pretty decisively.
