Dear Shri Nitishkumar ji,
Vanakkam. I would draw your immediate kind attention to the following matter of grave concern causing unbearable agony in the minds and hearts of Tamils of Tamilnadu and all over the world.
With a bleeding heart, I would like to point out that hundreds of thousands of innocent Tamils were massacred by the brutal military attacks launched by the racist Sinhala regime of President Mahinda Rajapakse.
The three member panel appointed by the General Secretary of United Nations in the year 2010, submitted its report, which clearly exposed the gruesome genocide of Tamils committed by the Sri Lankan Government of Rajapakse.
This genocide was carried on with the fullest aid and assistance of UPA Government of India, at the behest of Mrs. Sonia Gandhi.
In the name of fighting the LTTE, the Sri Lankan armed forces, mercilessly killed innocent Tamils through aerial bombing and straffing, using the most diabolical bombs, banned by the world community. Innocent Tamil children, women and elderly people, were brutally annihilated. As per UN Report.3,00,000 Tamil people were killed.
The President of Sri Lanka, Mahinda Rajapakse, with all audacity stated on the floor of the Sri Lankan Parliament that he conducted the war with the fullest help of the Indian Government.
Shocked over this genocide, 17 Tamil youths in Tamilnadu, committed self-immolation, sacrificed their lives in the engulfed flames to mobilise the public opinion, to persuade the Indian Goverment to bring ceasefire in that island.
But, the UPA Government, headed by Congress party, committed the unpardonable crime of betrayal against the Tamils.
Now, a bolt from the blue has fallen on our heads.
We, the people of Tamilnadu are terribly shocked to know that Mahinda Rajapakse, the President of Sri Lanka, is going to visit Bodh Gaya in Bihar on 8th February, to the site where Lord Buddha attained enlightenment.
Gowtam Buddha spurned all pleasures of royal life, voluntarily undergone sufferings and gave the gospel of compassion and love for the mankind.
Mr Rajapakse, has no moral right, even to pronounce the name of Buddha.
If this blood thirsty Rajapakse stepped into Bodh Gaya, the relics of Buddha will tremble and will not forgive, not only Rajapakse, but also the people who brought him there.
I would like to bring to your kind notice that the Oxford University Union Debating Society in UK, cancelled the scheduled programme of Mahinda Rajapakse in December 2010, respecting the sentiments of the Eelam Tamils, living in Britain.
The British Government also responded positively, to give a healing touch to the wounded hearts of Tamils, so that the Sri Lankan President had to leave Britain.
Again in 2012, on 6th June, the scheduled meeting in the city of London, in which Mahinda Rajapakse expected to address, was cancelled due to the demonstrations of Tamils, supported by the British Government.
In this background, I would request you to kindly take immediate steps to cancel the visiting programme of Mahinda Rajapakse, so that the sanctity of the Buddhist pilgrimage at Bodh Gaya could be preserved.
I do hope that your goodself would understand and appreciate the emotions of Tamil people in this very serious matter and take appropriate action to avoid the arrival of Rajapakse to Bodh Gaya.
I have already made the announcement that our Party Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (MDMK), will launch a peaceful agitation at New Delhi on 8th February against the UPA Government. I will lead the agitation.
We are prepared to undergo any hardship in this crusade.
