Sri Lankan pilgrims’ buses attacked again in Tamil Nadu
A group of Sri Lankan pilgrims were targeted allegedly by pro-Tamil groups near Trichy airport on Tuesday. The protestors smashed windshields of three buses carrying the pilgrims even as the police escorted the vehicles.
It was the second such attack in two days. The visitors were meted out similar treatment during their pilgrimage to Poondi Madha Christian shrine near Thanjavur on Monday.
A pro-Tamil outfit tried to block the pilgrims’ vehicles when they were returning after offering worship at the famous Velankanni Christian shrine.
The pilgrims have been in a state of shock and panic since the attacks on them. A pilgrim told Headlines Today: “We are human beings. Why are we being attacked? We are here for pilgrimage. We are not against anyone. We have spent lakhs for this. We have not got any food and water on us.”
Following the incident, the pilgrims were taken back to the airport amid tight security.

I mentioned in this website that close relationship with China particularly with defense minitry thereof would agitate India, which could have caused this situation.
Particularly I perceive this incident as a tit-for-tat for the visit of Chinese defense minister here in Sri Lanka.
So what are you asking to do? Do nothing or bend backwards?
Sri lanka also send back all indian nationality back to india.Majority of tamil communities came from south india so they also should send back india.We Sri lankan never want to separate the country,better those tamil peoples send back india and they should ask their own eelam in india.
SL should not follow TN example. It is wrong and two wrongs does not make a right. Let the world see their true nature.
Sri Lanka should never devolve the power. Any Sri Lankan citizen Tamil, Muslim or Sinhala can live in any part of the country.
But personally I don’t like Sri Lankan diplomatic trend to have very close relationship with China. China has been harassing Tibet one Buddhist country in the world. China’s plan is to integrate Tibet culture into Chinese-they need Tibetan to be Chinese in next generation.
Well, this is what happens to Sri Lankan Tamils in their own country. They have been mercilessly attacked by marauding gangs for the past 60 years. I hope the majority community realise what they have been doing to the Tamils in our country. If such a realisation occurs, the reason for the armed uprising to provide protection against arbitrary will manifest.
This very clearly shows the low down mentality of the TN racists. If Sri Lanka did not have cordial and strong diplomatic relations with China India would have taken the upper hand to throw its weight on this puny island. We are not safe enough without China.
I do not know weather you are living in Sri Lanka or a refugee in some other country. Go to any part of Sri Lanka and see how many Tamils are living in majority Sinhalese dominated areas. Tamils are mingling with the Sinhalese with peace and harmony. The elite Tamils, doctors, lawyers, businessmen are happily living in Colombo and around.
We all keep comments in this, but I’m not sure those are at least read by any authority. I kept my ideas in previous news as well pertain to the same.
First, our government should respond to this diplomatically. Because they have responsibility to keep all citizens in a safe position even they are out of country.
Secondly, we should not do the same to the people who travel from country called Tamilnadu to Srilanka. Instead we should treat them like kings. If we do the same what they did to us then there wont be any differences between them and Sinhalese.
So its a high priority to protect them in all the ways to safely tour and get back to their country.
We should not do what dogs do. We will do what humans do!!!..
We are educated enough to show them who we are.
YES KEEP OUR TAMILS IN SRI LANKA SAFE.
Indians usually stink specially the guys in TN
