Prime Minister Narendra Modi is committed to protect the rights of Sri Lankan Tamils, the Indian government said today.

"Modi is committed to save the life and rights of Tamils in Sri Lanka," newly sworn-in State Minister Radhakrishnan said.

Replying to a query by Tamil parties regarding the invitation extended to Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa to attend Mr. Modi's swearing-in ceremony, he said the Indian Government was concerned about the problems faced by the Tamils.  (Business Standard)

    [quote name="Punchi Banda"]What is India going to do. Inade Sri Lanka? What rights is he talking bout. Its the LTTE that took th rights of Tamils away and not the GO/SL[/quote]

    The Tamil peoples rights were taken away in 1956 with the passing of the Sinhala Only Law, which deprived the tamil people of jobs and segregated the Tamil people from the Sinhala people.

    Bernard Wijeyasingha Thursday, 29 May 2014 12:18 AM

    Modi better clearly state what rights are being violated against the Sri Lankan Tamils before taking up the issue. If he cannot then he better back off. He is not God.

    Sumathi Tuesday, 27 May 2014 06:32 AM

    First take a good care of the SL Tamil refugees in Tamilnadu.

    Banda Tuesday, 27 May 2014 06:36 AM

    Who said there is no peace in srilanka.

    Esala Tuesday, 27 May 2014 06:36 AM

    Protect the rights of Sri Lankan Tamils means keep in mind not the part of Sri Lanka as Tamil Eelam.

    DL Thursday, 29 May 2014 06:55 AM

    If he is going to protect Tamils in Sri Lanka he will have to protect Tamils in other countries too why only in Sri Lanka then Middle East counties will protect their Muslim too here so we do not want Sri Lanka government our kind request for those who seek help from other counties pls migrate n live with them Sri Lanka is independent country with immigrants from India n Pakistan so it is not fair that those counties try to grab part of Sri Lanka for their migrants

    Velusumana Tuesday, 27 May 2014 06:40 AM

    and the rights of the Sinhalese too.............

    barfi Wednesday, 28 May 2014 02:29 AM

    Create an Elam in India for Tamils all over the world.

    kumar Tuesday, 27 May 2014 06:47 AM

    If you honestly treat them equally, there is no need for a separate state.

    Ranjo Tuesday, 27 May 2014 03:22 PM

    Yeah yeah... pieceful!!

    Punchi Banda Tuesday, 27 May 2014 06:55 AM

    What is India going to do. Inade Sri Lanka? What rights is he talking bout. Its the LTTE that took th rights of Tamils away and not the GO/SL

    Ammaa Tuesday, 27 May 2014 06:56 AM

    If SL government oppose?

    dalubanda Tuesday, 27 May 2014 07:00 AM

    No elam for next 2500 years.

    dickey bird Wednesday, 28 May 2014 07:48 AM

    Certainly Yes. Those in India.
    It is for the GOSL to protect the SL Tamils in SL.

    Thondaman accompanied the PREZ for the innaugaration. That mean GOSL take care of Indian Tamils in SL.

    Wigi did not want the SL Tamils in SL taken careof. Its a pity.

    Gobi Tuesday, 27 May 2014 07:34 AM

    What mathematical tool did you use to get this value?

    Hafiz Tuesday, 27 May 2014 07:35 AM

    Let him first commit himself to protect the right of the Muslims in India before minding some other business.

    VoiceofLankan Tuesday, 27 May 2014 07:35 AM

    Are you only watching and reading state media? Do u have access to internet? Then read non-state media and you will see yourself.

    Tamils are treated equally. That is why Mr. Thondaman accompanied MR to India.
