Tamil actors Kamal Haasan and Sathyaraj have expressed their support to Mrs Ambihai Selvakumar, a British Tamil activist who has now entered the 17th day of her hunger strike, demanding the British government to refer Sri Lanka to the International Criminal Court (ICC) for the Tamil genocide.
Kamal Haasan tweeted: "Demanding justice for the genocide, our Eelam sister Ambihai Selvakumar began a hunger strike on February 27. Britain must listen to the voice of a woman fighting for justice. Tamils must lend their support to her protest."
“Vanakkam! I salute sister Ambihai Selvakumar’s non-violent protest and compare it to the protest carried out by the world's greatest non-violent protester, Thileepan,” Sathyaraj said in a video last week.
“She has undertaken the hunger strike protest with just demands for an investigation into the genocide and war crimes that took place in Sri Lanka. I bless that her demands emerge victorious and that she soon gives up the hunger strike protest,” Sathyaraj added.
The actor said all of Selvakumar's demands are “genuine and the International Criminal Court must create the means for those to be realised.”
Sathyaraj pointed out that Selvakumar has detailed the procedure through which her demands shall come to fruition. “She has clearly laid out the means through which her demands can be executed.”
“I greet sister Ambihai Selvakumar that this protest, which is happening with the good intention that human rights must be reclaimed, wins and justice is secured,” Sathyaraj said expressing his strong endorsement of the British activist’s protest.
Sathyaraj concluded by quoting the lines of a popular Tamil song, Namadhu Vetriyai Naalai: “This is a movement for justice, the world will definitely facilitate this!”
Selvakumar's hunger strike has sparked a series of solidarity protests across the North-East and in the disapora and has received support from politicians across the world. Selvakumar has refused food and is only having water as she continues to demand the UK to satisfy at least one of her four demands.
