A group of Sri Lankan Tamils protested outside a London venue where India’s Congress President Sonia Gandhi delivered a lecture on Thursday. Protestors shouted anti-India slogans and demanded that New Delhi take swift action to protect the interests of Sri Lankan Tamils.

 Mrs. Gandhi was in London to deliver the 14th Commonwealth Lecture on the subject ‘Women as Agents of Change’. (sify.com)

    Tamils are Tamils all over the world - why there is exclusivity about SL Tamils? Are they coming from Elephantine Vagina?

    Many Sri Lankan Tamils abroad can only know how to protest and protect their narrow minded interest. They never be Sri Lankans and a disgrace to our country.
