Naam Tamilar Founder Seeman on Indian / Tamil Nationalism and Tamil Nadu Fishermen's Death
TAMIL TRIBUNE, June 2011 (ID. 2011-06-01)
Sri Lankan Navy is attacking, shooting and killing Tamil Nadu fishermen for over a decade. Scores of fishermen have been killed, many more injured and millions of Rupees worth of boats and fishing equipment damaged [see Reference 2 for a summary of death toll]. Indian government is refusing to stop it in spite of repeated requests from Tamil Nadu State government. Director S. Seeman's statement below is about this situation. Mr. Seeman is a movie director, Tamil activist and founder of the organization "Naam Tamilar" (We Tamils).
(Though Director Seeman talks of going to war with Sri Lanka, no military action would be necessary if the Indian government treated the attacks and killings of Tamil Nadu fishermen seriously instead of making excuses and even justifying Sri Lankan Navy attacks [Reference 1]. More information about Sri Lankan navy attacks may be found at the "Related Articles" listed below.)
