[TamilNet, Thursday, 26 September 2013, 14:03 GMT]
New Delhi’s former Health Minister, Dr. Anpumani Ramadoss revealed to the UNHRC on Tuesday about a serious genocidal crime, demographic genocide through forced sterilisation and abortions that is being carried by the Sri Lankan State on Eezham Tamils. He was citing recent reports of local human rights groups and a 2007 Wikileaks document of the US State Department. Saying that as a physician and former health minister of India he was outraged, he called upon the UNHRC to establish an independent, international commission of inquiry to investigate Sri Lanka’s past and present war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide against Tamils.

Dr. A. Ramadoss, leader of the youth wing of the Pattali Makkal Katchi of Tamil Nadu, was Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare in the Congress led government in New Delhi from May 2004 to April 2009 till his tenure was over.
