India wants Sri Lanka to empower the minority Tamil speaking people through a political process and open a new chapter in the island nation's history, Indian External Affairs Minister, SM Krishna said.

"We also want the Lankan president Mahinda Rajapaksa to create a situation where the minority Tamil speaking people are empowered through political process and open a new chapter in Sri Lankan history", the Union Minister told reporters on the sidelines of a function in India.

India was for the implementation of the 13th Amendment to the Lankan Constitution conferring equal rights to people, he said after delivering Rajaji memorial lecture.

The 13th amendment gave effect to the devolution provisions of the Indo-Lanka Accord, signed in July 1987.

Asked if India sought to play a key role in Lankan affairs, he said New Delhi would "assist the friendly power in whatever manner possible." (PTI)

    Mr. S. M. Krishna, please keep out of Sri Lankan affairs. It is not your place to tell Sri Lanka what to do.

    If equal status for all communities are offered with some special provision to allay the fears and concerns of minority communities through some form of constitutional guarantees based on proportion of population, there need not be any special empowerment for anyone provided that there is a instant, robust, impartial legal mechanism to challenge any drastic measures by Majority Community or by Government detrimental to the interests of minorities.

    You first stop harassing the Muslim when they apply for visa. Any Muslim who have visited pakistan before are immediately rejected without any reason.
