Cameron has won Tamils’ hearts: Karunanidhi

DMK president M. Karunanidhi on Tuesday said Tamils across the world expected India to demand a fair inquiry into the human rights violations and war crimes in Sri Lanka, as demanded by the U.K. Prime Minister, David Cameron, but it had failed to show any concern for the Tamils.

“Mr. Cameron has secured a permanent place in the hearts of Tamils in Sri Lanka, Tamils living in other countries and Tamils in Tamil Nadu,” he said.
In a statement here, he said if Prime Minister Manmohan Singh decided to stay away from the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in deference to the sentiments of the Tamils, he could have explained the real reason behind his boycott in a letter to Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

“He should have raised the issue of atrocities against the Tamils and demanded a fair inquiry so that the world will know the truth. But he belied the expectations of Tamils and deputed External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid to take part in the meeting,” he said.

“The Indian Prime Minister also could have won the Tamils’ appreciation if Mr. Khurshid had announced that India would completely boycott to highlight the atrocities against the Tamils, the human rights violations and war crimes,” he said.

Recalling China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Qin Gang’s remarks that the international community should offer constructive help to countries to improve their human rights through their efforts,

Mr. Karunanidhi said when even a country like China, which had been helping Sri Lanka in a big way, expressed his concern over human rights, the Indian Foreign Minister preferred to remain silent. (Source: The Hindu)

    British know how to fool tamils. History repeat. If they truely love why they did't creat a tamil country in South India when India was given Independence. They just fool us. In the long run we won't any thing from this. Only increased ethnic tension, innocent tamils sufferring will increase back home. So I ask British and Tamil Nadu not to spread hate and sickness of ethnic issues in the name of human rights. We need access to our basic needs which are the priority in our human rights and not the sickness of ethnis issues. Please stop intefereing in our country whic disturb thereconciliation.

    With help of UNP. and Cameron half of the country will go to Tamil Nadu.

    mackie noohuthambi Thursday, 21 November 2013 06:36 AM

    PENNY WISE POUND FOOLISH. IF MANMOHAN SINGH HAD GONE TO SRI LANKA TO PARTICIPATE IN THE COMMONWEALTH CONFERENCE, CAMERON MIGHT HAVE TAKEN MANMOHAN SINGH WITH HIM TO JAFFNA, HE, BEING AN INDIAN AND A PRIME MINISTER FOR TAMILS ALSO. BOTH MIGHT HAVE MET THE TAMILS TOGETHER AND SHARED THEIR VIEWS WITH MAHINDHA RAJAPAKSE. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A DOUBLE BARREL GUN.

    jim pappa Thursday, 21 November 2013 06:11 AM

    Cameron doesn't care a damn about tamil's hearts.He is only interested in tamil votes, which may swing the balance in several constituencies. But in your case, no matter what you talk, both you and Manmohan will lose the next election.

    Dilum Thursday, 21 November 2013 05:58 AM

    Thats what Cameron wanted,he was aiming at the Tamil votes,nothing else.

    ANTON Thursday, 21 November 2013 05:58 AM

    NOW YOU CAN DEMAND A SEPARATE LAND IN UK FOR YOUR TAMIL PEOPLE.
