Nedumaran castigated France of double standard

Paris, 14 April, ( Pala Nedumaran, an Indian National and a pro-LTTE campaigner in his address yesterday in Paris castigated France for its double standard and said it is the duty of France to assist the Tamils in Sri Lanka in setting up a separate country.

Nedumaran, it was reported that he admonished France for being tough and for arresting leading members of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam and keeping them under custody since 01 April 2007.

The meeting was held at La Palinne Saint Denis, Paris yesterday at 4 PM at the LSC Hall, in remembrance of Poobathy Kanapathipillai – a strong LTTE supporter, who fasted from Mahmangam Pillayar temple, in Batticaloa to death on 19 April 1988, demanding the Indian government to stop war against the Tamil separatist outfit Liberation Tigers - spewing anti-Indian sentiments.

The meeting began with the singing of LTTE songs glorifying the terrorists outfit, followed by special address by Pala Nedumaran of the World Tamil Movement from Chennai, India.

Nedumaran speaking at the meeting told that the struggle in Sri Lank was launched by the LTTE to establish a separate state for the Tamils living in the country.

Pala Nedumaran, in his address in Paris appealed to the international community to support the Tamil Eelam struggle of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, a separatist Tamil outfit of Sri Lanka.

Though Nedumaran an Indian Tamil, he has never agitated of carving out a separate state of Tamil Nadu out of India, which is a home for about 65 millions Tamils. But he speaks only of setting up of a separate state for the Tamils in Sri Lanka which is a home for less than 3 million Tamils.

Earlier Nedumaran was due to arrive in London on 28 March in order to give a speech at the Muthu Mari Amman Temple in Tooting, London run by the Siva Yogam Trust, which was investigated by the UK's Charity Commission and Scotland Yards Anti-Terrorism branch recently over its links with the LTTE. Nedumaran was however denied of Visa to enter Britain.
