Cameron has won Tamils’ hearts: Karunanidhi
DMK president M. Karunanidhi on Tuesday said Tamils across the world expected India to demand a fair inquiry into the human rights violations and war crimes in Sri Lanka, as demanded by the U.K. Prime Minister, David Cameron, but it had failed to show any concern for the Tamils.
“Mr. Cameron has secured a permanent place in the hearts of Tamils in Sri Lanka, Tamils living in other countries and Tamils in Tamil Nadu,” he said.
In a statement here, he said if Prime Minister Manmohan Singh decided to stay away from the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in deference to the sentiments of the Tamils, he could have explained the real reason behind his boycott in a letter to Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
“He should have raised the issue of atrocities against the Tamils and demanded a fair inquiry so that the world will know the truth. But he belied the expectations of Tamils and deputed External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid to take part in the meeting,” he said.
“The Indian Prime Minister also could have won the Tamils’ appreciation if Mr. Khurshid had announced that India would completely boycott to highlight the atrocities against the Tamils, the human rights violations and war crimes,” he said.
Recalling China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Qin Gang’s remarks that the international community should offer constructive help to countries to improve their human rights through their efforts,
Mr. Karunanidhi said when even a country like China, which had been helping Sri Lanka in a big way, expressed his concern over human rights, the Indian Foreign Minister preferred to remain silent.

This tamil fat pig.
Cameron may have won tamil hearts as well as remaining LTTE terrorists’ and their supporters’ hearts. But what matters is what the British voters think of him and how they vote at the next election and the composition of voting members at the UNHRC after Dec. 2013.
Please don’t be harsh on him..This Indian Movie screen play writer has just mixed up his words due to old age, the poor guy meant “Cameron has won LTTE hearts” (if they have hearts .. maybe they have .. but certainly not concisions).
But for sure Cameron has won Tamil Diespora’s heart and ensured some funding for next British elections.
Cameron should help to give tamil naaduu in india own eelam soon,that he doing big help tamil communities.Sri lanka is a small country we don´t have place to separte the own land for tamils.
I agree with Azeez; there is only 1 million approx. Tamils in northern province against more than 74 million Tamils in TN -India. It is of the best interest of All Tamils that a separate State is formed in TN and let any SL Tamils who are advocating for Tamil separate state be transferred there.
