  A mass protest was held in Jaffna at 3 p.m. yesterday against Tamil Nadu politicians Thol. Thiruvmavalavan, T. Velmurugan and Y. Gopalaswamy, who prevented the superstar of Tamil cinema, Rajinikanth, visiting Jaffna to hand-over the keys of 150 houses, built by Lyca, (a private firm based in London) to homeless people who had been affected by the separatist war.”

Head lines in the newspapers these days is about the South Indian Actor who has been invited to hand over houses built by a telecom  company owned by a Sri Lanka Tamil.

It is good that diaspora is now trying to help the needy in the North,Recently a Canadian team of diaspora members have also visited Sri Lanka with proposals to promote investments in the North.

I keep wondering why the promoters wanted to Invite an actor form Tamil Nadu when in Sri Lanka we have a popular national hero called Muthiah Muralidaran to grace occasion as he may be as popular as Rajnikanth ,but in a different field .

    That Tamil owned company (found to be involved in FRAUD in the UK) has built houses ONLY for Tamils! How UNFORTUNATE!

    Only in Jaffna you get this type of STUPID protests. How FOOLISH one has to be to protest the ABSENCE of a south Endian actor!! This is SADLY the mentality of Jaffna people today. UNFORTUNATE!

    Do not issue a visa to this LTTE sympathizers. They are poisonous snakes. They done so much harm to us during LTTE terror period and we shouldn’t encourage such parasites to visit our land at all. If other countries deny visas to our war heroes why should we allow such individuals to come here. No way they should come here. Enough is enough stop giving milk to ltte murderers and their sympathizers.
