India would definitely extend its support to the United Nations Human Rights Committee (UNHRC) when it would visit Sri Lanka to study the allegations of massive human rights violations during the final phase of the war against the LTTE in 2009, says Union Minister of State for PMO V Narayanasamy.

“Not only in Sri Lanka, if war crimes and human rights violations are reported in any part of the world, India will not remain a mute spectator and will strongly oppose it,” Narayanasamy said.

He said that the Prime Minister will nt allow Human Rights violations to take place in any part of the world.

In march this year, India along with 24 countries voted against Sri Lanka today at a session of the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva. The US had sponsored resolution for ‘promoting reconciliation and accountability’ in Sri Lanka after the army defeated the Tamil Tigers in a 26-year-long civil war. UNHCR is one of the main providers of humanitarian assistance to IDPs and returnees in Sri Lanka.

India is Sri Lanka’s largest trade partner overall and Sri Lanka is India’s largest trade partner in South Asia. India has emerged as the largest foreign direct investor in Sri Lanka. India also contributes to the largest number of tourists arrivals in Sri Lanka. (Frontier India News Network)

    Time Sri Lanka realized its position is the international community. Sri Lanka is a small developing country saddled with war crimes. Until this issue is sorted out legally this will be the music.

    clement Sunday, 23 September 2012 04:10 PM

    saskia even humanrights groupes have not accused SL on rape. if these happened i find it amusing that refugees are returning in numbers back to SL from TN after the war. tdy even from aussi despite given the option of remaining. so the fact is they could not stand LTTE terror. you need to be matured b4 posting such comments

    Finally an obvious glimmer along the right track which can be expected from all UN member countries.

    david Sunday, 23 September 2012 05:40 PM

    If SL forces not comited war crime why do they fear. US Parliament also going to bring a resolution to investigate HR in Sri Lanka.

    Yehiya Sunday, 23 September 2012 06:05 PM

    This is totally Mahinda,s fault. Not India.When war time India with us. After war plan for kingdom, not for needful.

    senavi Sunday, 23 September 2012 06:25 PM

    It is all about money. The power brokers in Colombo (Colombians) need handouts from abroad to maintain their life styles and would do anything their masters ask

    Jaya Sunday, 23 September 2012 04:35 AM

    Who is ready to give a report on war crimes against USA in Afghanstan?.

    Subbiah Sunday, 23 September 2012 04:42 AM

    In so many countries human rights violations are taking place.
    What is your Prime Minister doing?

    You are talking something to please him.

    Cleo Sunday, 23 September 2012 07:22 AM

    So if war crimes were committed, what was your Prime Minster doing at that time?Why speak only now, is there an election coming?

    Cleo Sunday, 23 September 2012 07:24 AM

    Why not us Srilankans do a report against our largest trading partner and aid donor?Our fellows are experts in Reports and Commissions.

    AMG Sunday, 23 September 2012 07:26 AM

    Who is going to take the responsible for crimes committed by Tamil LTTE?

    AMG Sunday, 23 September 2012 07:31 AM

    Saliya De Silva Sunday, 23 September 2012 08:26 AM

    Surely SL (Rajapaksa's) will never obey to Indian Strategy. So, India is blackmailing with war crimes.

    lal Sunday, 23 September 2012 08:36 AM

    Thousands are murdered within India's borders, in Kashmir by Indian troops. Indian troops massacred and robbed Tamils. India won't be a mute spectator? Idiotic minister, a TN product?

    Saskia Sunday, 23 September 2012 10:00 AM

    do you then agree that SL forces also murdered and raped tamils in SL?

    Lobo Sunday, 23 September 2012 10:54 AM

    Saskiam, talk facts or shut up. Don't base your judgement on rumours, baseless allegations and 3rd party information.

    Kalu Sudda Sunday, 23 September 2012 11:37 AM
