Chennai police to ban Lankans
The Chennai city police has in a shocking move instructed hotels in the city not to accommodate pilgrims from Sri Lanka after two attacks on visitors from the island nation.
The knee-jerk reaction by the police has led to pilgrims cancelling their plans to visit the Maha Bodhi Society in Chennai.
“A few hotels and lodges in North Chennai are denying rooms to the pilgrims from the Maha Bodhi Society, citing orders from the police,” said officials of the society.
With season for pilgrimage commencing from the end of July, the Maha Bodhi Society, a religious centre which can accommodate only 250 people, is now struggling to find place to accommodate the overwhelming pilgrims. Now that hotels are turning them away, the pilgrims say they have no place to stay.
The Lankan nationals say the police action is like insult added to injury.
When contacted, additional commissioner of police (law and order) Thamarai Kannan denied that the police had issued instructions to hotels not to take Lankans as guests.
Hotels say they were ordered by cops
While the Chennai police has in an outrageous step allegedly instructed hotels and lodges not to provide accommodation to Sri Lankan pilgrims and then denied that any such instruction had been issued, officials at a hotel in Egmore who refused to give rooms to the pilgrims last week told them that they were acting on the directions of the city police.
“Two pilgrimage organisers in Sri Lanka were forced to cancel their bookings after a hotels in Egmore and other localities in north Chennai turned down their request for rooms,” said an official of the Maha Bodhi Society in the city.
“A few pilgrimage organisers have cancelled their visits to Chennai and instead headed for Delhi en route to Bodhgaya,” he said. “Around two lakh pilgrims visit the society every year. There is every chance that the numbers will fall if this persecution continues.”
That the cops reportedly took the unconsidered decision after two attacks on visitors from the island nation has angered the pilgrims.
However, the official said a few other hotels in and around Egmore are defying the police diktat and are providing them with rooms. Before providing them with rooms, the hotels officials take details of the pilgrims and keep copies of their pilgrimage visas and passports that they forward to the police.
Wrong end of the stick?

It is clear memebers of a genocidal society are not welcome in other lands.
Those who provide accomodation to members of a genocidal society from Sri Lanka carry the risk their property being damaged.
In Sri Lanka’s capital Sinhala landlords deny tamils of property on rent because of the threat of goons attacking the residences of tamils.
The leaders of any genocidal society cannot visit many western countries; the law is waiting for them there. President George Dubya is one of them too; he cannot step of Switzerland’s soil because of civilian court action on war crimes in Iraq.
There is a new world order which requires communities and its leaders to be conscious of societal norms in governance.
It’s clear that UNCIVILIZATION of tamils. (aaditasi paandi/out-caste barbarians/low cast outfits in the world)
if you see a tamil film, then you’ll understand how Cruel & wild is tamil folk.
They dream & even like to see in films; killing/murdering/raping/violence/kidnapping/slaughtering/sacking/destroying/revenging… & all such animal instincs. That’s how their minds working so what to do for such creatures….!
chelvan what are you talking bulshit .its very clear your one of the LTTE ass ,you go and see around the colombo howemany tamils moving freely i dont hve word for you stoupid .amden is corect, your psc of shit .
Demala Chelvan has very little English vocabulary. One of the few English words he knows is “Genocide” taught to him by one of the tamil diasphora. He is continuously uttering that word like a mantra to show out that he knows English. But, no one takes notice except me! Please people support this poor guy.
Please someone tell him here that we think he knows a lot of English so that he will be happy and move on to learn some other English words too.
Hey Demala Chelvan
What the F–k are u talking about you illiterate parasite. What about all the gold shops in Sea Street? Who owns them?. What about all the Tamils in Dehiwala Wellawatte and Colombo in general. Are they not living in peace. I have brothers and sisters who are married to tamils and we don’t see them any different.It is only when tamils start talking shit like wanting a seperate state that we see them different. You certainly sound like a terrorist who wants to divide the country but unfortunately for you and the f—-g maniacs who want to divide the country, not all tamils share your sentiments because they do not want to leave their flourishing businesses and their nice homes and live in Jaffna.So for f—s sake forget your dream of a separate and learn to live in harmony or go hang your self.Naththang Waha tikak kala kaleta ringapang Yako.
The Dharaneeshwara Kalyani is visiting noodle-land; that’s the one and only place in the World where he is welcome.
The younger Blue Brother is boiling, in conflict with everyone and everything.
A caged animal, he is, a frog in the well in the internationally isolated pariah state. Robert Mugabe demonstrates similar behavioural patterns too.
The LTT had similar feelings when the Western and American Nations outlawed them. At that time, the LTT let their frustrations out by staging “dramatic” and morale boosting acts.
The public in India have sent a clear message to the majority community in Sri Lanka. The seeds of freedom that were sown by the Vaddukoddai Resolution are about spring into life.
Under bigmama Jayalalitha in Tamilnadu, Tamil nationalism is rising. Big mama is re-directing it against SL. The evil extremist Tamils in TN are intolerant of peaceful Sri Lankans visiting Bodhgaya in the year of 2600th Sambudatvajayanthi. Their hate and bloodlust have turned them into evil devils like the LTTE. Perhaps it is in their genes and Hindu culture. They manifested this when SL was invaded by the Cholas and Pandyans. Unfortunately, the last SL king was a Tamil usurper who was extremely cruel. I am glad the British sent himn packing to Vellore to die and be buried in an unmarked grave.
As for DC, I suggest he return to Yalpanam from diasporaland to make an honest living washing the backsides of our Sinhalese army personnel and their latrines.
Hey DC Your comment about the public of India sending a message to the majority Sinhalese in S/Lanka is a very ignorant statement. What if the majority Sinhalese in and around Colombo sends the same message to the minority tamils. You are uncivilized arrogant barbarian and you seem to be thinking just like that maniac VP. Fortunately the majority sinhalese are peace loving people or else there would be no tamils living in Colombo.
Hey brother Sisira,
The tamil community in Sri Lanka have consistently been receiving messages for the majority community and its leaders for many decades.
It started off with the push for Sinhala only, went on to racial riots in 1957, 1977, 1983. The Northern Province has always had a strong military presence. There’s been land grabbing and mass settlements in the eastern Province. There’s been discrimination in opportunity in commerce, education and jobs. There’s discrimination in application of the laws of the country.
To be honest with you Sisira, the tamil community, wherever they live in the island, always live in fear of physical harm.
The majority Singhalese may be peace loving people but the tamils have never had the sense of security. Each time a tamil man/woman leaves home, he fears that he may never return.
It is like bringing up children in one’s home. If you infuse a sense of fear in them, they suffer inwardly all their lives.
For the first time in months I saw some writting advancements in you. What an improvement in writting without the previously only known english word by you “Genocide”. Congratulations !
