Gowthaman’s letter to Modi

Gowthaman's letter to ModiDue to Lankan government’s atrocities, the Tamil brethren are almost dead and gone. Dear Modiji, Instead of helping them get their rights back, please don’t leave them, said filmmaker Gowthaman. You invitation to Lankan President Rajapaksa to attend your swearing-in has created an impression among Tamil folks worldwide that you don’t care for the sorrow and sufferings of Tamils in Lanka, he said. The Tamils have been sidelined for centuries and the Lankan government has unleashed terror on them and the Tamil community has been branded as terrorists. The Lankan government is using all its might to wipe out Tamils, he added. Thousands of our brothers were killed in Mullaivaikal and many are languishing in camps in pitiable condition. The Lankan government has arrested Tamils, killed many and even sexually assaulted our sisters in the alien land, said Gowthaman. It is sad that you don’t understand our feelings. Many documentaries have been screened on television channels on the atrocities committed on Tamils and it is sad that you have not seen it, Gowthaman said. Tamilnadu government has passed several resolutions economic sanctions on Sri Lanka. When the whole nation condemns the Lankan government for their act, it is sad that you have extended an invite to me, he said.
