Do you know who the Sri Lankan Tamils are?

Who are the Sri Lankan Tamils?

The wikipedia contents of “Hindusim in Sri Lanka” and “Sri Lankan Tamil People” says that Hindus of Sri Lanka are almost completely Tamil people. Rephrasing this will mean “Tamils of Sri Lanka” are Hindus” whereas the rest Sinhalese are Buddhists.
 
Is a religious divide visible?
 
The ongoing tussle between Buddhists and Hindus is being shown as Tamil rights issue in TN. It is true that (Hindus) Tamils are ill-treated in Sri Lanka, but the people who shout saying they support the Sri Lankan cause seem to be hiding their own identity and fooling around people. I decided to write this piece as soon as I read Yasin Malik of JKLF attends a pro Tamil meet. Are the Hindus of Tamilnadu even understanding what is happening?
 
Seeman, who formed Naam Tamilar party has invited Yasin Malik of the Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), who has blood of crores of Hindus of Kashmir in his hands to the pro-Tamil meet. A terrorist who has killed Hindus in Kashmir is being called to a pro – Tamil meet which aims to fight the cause of persecuted Hindus of Sri Lanka.

Where is the equation between the two?

The Tamil cause is being hijacked into a secessionist movement like Kashmir. It is time Hindus of Tamilnadu raise their heads above and stop simply patronizing the Eelam cause without knowing its underlying motive. The Sri Lankan Hindus should get their fair share of rights, but the Dravidian parties showcasing it as Tamil rights and comparing it with rights of Kashmir is anti-national and will finally become counterproductive.

Comment Yes Srinivasan,

Very valid and important concern.

Political parties and their politicians these days have thrown away their national duties to dust bins.
