BJP protests against killing of Hindu Tamils in Sri LankaJanuary 30th, 2009 - 11:23 pm ICT by ANI
Coimbatore, Jan 30, (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party on Friday staged a protest over the killings of Tamil Hindus in Sri Lanka and urged the Centre to take into consideration the deaths of Hindus along with the Tamils in that country.
According to S.R. Sekhar, a senior BJP leader, the killing of Tamils is not just limited to Tamils but also includes Hindus. He urged the Central Government to intervene and take action to prevent the killing of innocent Hindus.
“The BJP is taking up the problem as a Hindu problem, where the whole nation will be responding. The Central Government is not responding because they are thinking it’’s a Tamil problem alone, S.R. Sekhar added.
The BJP is the only party, which is viewing it as a Hindu problem. For this purpose BJP is fasting in Coimbatore to condemn the genocide against Tamils by the Sinhalese Government, Sekhar claimed.
In another development, hundreds of students took out a protest demonstration against the inhuman attacks on Tamils in Sri Lanka and criticised the Congress-led UPA government for doing precious little in this regard.
“Today, to condemn the genocides taking place against Tamil people in Sri Lanka, we the students from all colleges have staged this protest. If the genocide doesn”t stop there, we will intensify our struggle,” said Professor Sushila, one of the protestors.
Aid agencies say about 2,50,000 civilians are caught between the foes and at serious risk. (ANI)
