Attacks on Buddhist Monks and Sri Lankan visitors to Tamil Nadu must cease
We have observed the recent attacks on Buddhist monks and other Sri Lankan visitors in Tamil Nadu with grave concern and extreme unease. These attacks are callous and disgraceful and will not help the Sri Lankan Tamils, but may cause them more harm. We offer our heartfelt sympathies to the victims. Certainly, there is no justification for these acts from either a political perspective or, in truth, from the perspective of any other moral and freedom-loving people. These acts diminish the pride, dignity and freedom of Eelam Tamils.

Universal Periodic Review, 14th Session UN Human Rights Council, Geneva, Switzerland
The period since the last Universal Periodic Review in 2007 has witnessed grave violations of the human rights of civilians in Sri Lanka, particularly in the north-east zone, by state authorities and security forces, culminating in the killing of thousands of Tamils. Although large-scale attacks on civilians have stopped since the end of the war in May 2009, violations have continued and human rights defenders (HRDs) have been particularly targeted by the state in all parts of Sri Lanka.

UN failed to stand up for the rights of people they were mandated to assist
The UN Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon, speaking at the UN General Assembly on 30 November 2012, expressed concern over the “new and appalling height of brutality” in Syria, and the human rights violations “being carried out on a wide scale”. He said “I am horrified and saddened and condemn the seemingly daily massacres of civilians”. The very same Secretary-General has presided over an institution that knowingly allowed massacres of civilians, including possibly genocide of Tamils, to take place in Sri Lanka in 2008 and 2009 and thereafter took deliberate measures to cover-up the involvement.

War Crimes against Humanity in Sri Lanka
The ethnic conflict in Sri Lanka affected the lives of all the people in the island and caused immense suffering to the Tamil community. The Tamil north-east region has been devastated by three decades of civil war. Despite international focus in recent years real peace has eluded the country. Within the country reconciliation efforts are superficial and vehement resistance to the promotion and protection of minority rights continues to be evident.
