‘London is lucky to have Tamil community’ says Mayor

The Mayor of London praised the city’s Tamil community in a message released on Sunday morning, as many celebrated Puthandu. 

“It’s also a time for all Londoners to reflect on the brilliant contribution that Tamil Londoners make to our great city,” said Sadiq Khan. 

“London is so lucky to have such a thriving Tamil community that makes an invaluable contribution to our economy, to our culture and to the vibrancy of the capital.”

“You show, yet again, that our diversity is a strength, not a weakness.” 

His message comes just days after the Metropolitan Police announced it had arrested at least four “Sri Lankan nationals” on suspicion of membership of a proscribed terrorist organisation.
