Publication: Attacks on Buddhist Monks and Sri Lankan visitors to Tamil Nadu must cease
Posted Date: 04/05/2013 (Saturday)
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.

Posted Date: 04/05/2013 (Saturday)
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”.
