Indian Muslim party demands justice for genocide of Eezham Tamils

[TamilNet, Friday, 08 March 2013, 01:03 GMT]
The Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI), a pan-Indian Muslim political party, protested on Thursday outside the UN office at Delhi demanding justice for the genocide-affected nation of the Eezham Tamils. Stating that there was a “gradual genocide” of the Eezham Tamil nation going on in the occupied homeland of the Eezham Tamils, the protestors placed four principal demands to the UN and India, namely to pass a resolution against the Sri Lankan state recognizing its crime of genocide, to punish the perpetrators of gross human rights violations, to ensure the trial of Sri Lankan war criminals in the International Criminal Court and to punish the perpetrators of sexual violence against Tamil women.

The protest was presided by the Party’s National General Secretary Hafiz Manzoor Ali Khan.

SDPI’s Tamil Nadu State General Secretary Nellai Mubarak, Shuhaib from Popular Front of India, Delhi Unit, Campus Front of India National General Secretary C.A. Raoof and NCHRO National Secretary A Mohamed Yusuff also spoke at the protest.

Tamil political observers in Chennai told TamilNet that it was the consistent work by several Tamil Muslim activists from Tamil Nadu that has led to a pan-Indian grassroots Muslim party taking up the issue of the genocide of the Eezham Tamils with the seriousness it deserves.
