    I am a Srilankan tamil and like to say one thing that this type of barbaric attacks over innocent people may develop tense situation among Sinhala and Tamil community rather than helping to find resolution for ethnic problem. I am very disappointed and saddened for the attack on Srilankan pilgrim in TN and I am urging the government of India to take action against the people those who support for racism from TN because most of the Tamils in SL really do not like racism and separate state as well.

    TN politicians can help the Tamils in Sri Lanka only by minding their own business

    Poor pilgrims. What a disappointment.

    I really feel sorry for them, I think the protesters are misguided!

    If TN really wants to help the Tamils in Sri Lanka, they have to work with the international community. You can't get anywhere by treating innocent pilgrims and school children badly!

    Ii is deplorable to attack the innocent pilgrims. Taking revenge on innocent people is not going to help in any way but only
    aggravates the situation.

    as an indian i feel terribly ashamed of the acts of hooligans on the innocent srilankan people. i apologize to them..i worked in the gulf sates for several years and had the opportunity to interact with many srilankan people.they are great friends and well mannered .these hooligans are a miniscule group who live upon creating troubles against people from their own neighboring states..

    These attack show that whole of TN is support of LTTE and for separation of this island
