New Delhi bans Channel 4 documentary on ‘killing fields’ of Tamils

[TamilNet, Sunday, 23 February 2014, 20:32 GMT]
India's Central Bord of Film Certification has refused to allow permission to screen No Fire Zone: The Killing Fields of Sri Lanka, Hindustan Times reported on Sunday. Responding to the censorship imposed by New Delhi, the director of the documentary, Callum Macrae has gone on record stating that the documentary would be freely available on line for the Indian public. Mr Macrae was earlier denied visa to enter India.

Ironically, Sri Lankan government allowed Mr Macrae to visit Colombo during the CHOGM, but New Delhi refused visa to the director of the documentary in November 2013.

The New Delhi Establishment is accused of complicity in the war which has set a genocidal paradigm for the first time in South Asia ever since the wars of the times of British colonialism.

If there is going to a genuine international investigation, New Delhi along with Washington and London will be among the main accused in the crime against the nation of Eezham Tamils, independent political observers in Tamil Nadu said.
