Actor Rajinikanth has pulled out of the event of handing over the keys of 150 homes to Tamils in Jaffna on April 9.

The houses were built by Gnanam Foundation, which has been named after Lyca Group chairman Subaskaran Allirajah’s mother, at a cost of Rs. 22 crore.

Mr. Rajinikanth said he agreed to visit the island nation since he wanted to see the places where Tamils lived and died for their cause.

“Though I disagree with the reasons given by VCK chief Thirumavalavan and MDMK chief Vaiko, I will not participate in the event”, he said in a statement.

The leaders of the pro-Tamil outfits had cautioned the actor from getting “involved” in the emotive ethnic issue.

Mr. Rajinikanth said he planned to meet Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena and urge him to find a lasting solution to the fishermen issue.

“I am not a politician, I am an artist. My job is to entertain people. In future, if I get a chance to visit Sri Lanka to witness the place of the ‘holy war’, don’t silence me”, he said.(The Hindu)

    Whether it is HOLYWAR (Tamils) or not (Singhales) it is not a matter but people are suffering and Rajanikanth is a GOOD entertainment for the suffering masses. Don't be a communal politician fighting from the arm chair.

    Firstly Mr. Tough Guy, it was not a holy war but a dirty one started by your own country and secondly you are a victim of false propaganda and just missed a chance of saying hello to thousands of your fans who worship you for what you are on the silver screen. Someday you will realize that you let down your Sri Lankan fans, big time

    Hiran Saturday, 25 March 2017 07:20 PM

    Sorry sir! That war between the most ruthless terrorist outfit and Sri Lankan armed forces, never was a holy war. It was simply sheer terrorism from LTTE's side!

    non sense and nuisance and it is an act of 7th sense creature. if what rajnikanth says are true to the best of his knowledge he should not have cancelled the trip. thiruma and vaiko are not really interested in helping sri lankan tamils. they just play the ltte card, and they have been rejected by tamils, thanks for the latest tally of election results in tamil nadu. they are just black mailing the superstar.

    Fazil Saturday, 25 March 2017 09:21 PM

    See the word, he has used.. HOLY WAR... Pls ban his films and entry in srilanka....

    A greedy man fighting for his own greedy purpose by declining education for children to sacrifice them for his selfish reasons is a holy war via DM Android App
