Asins Srilankan Eye Camp Makes 10 People Blind

Asin at Jaffa Eye camp with Rajapakshe Wife

According to May 17 Movement, an organization for srilankan Tamils, ten people turned blind after receiving eye treatment in camps organised in Jaffna by actress Asin. It has thus asked Asin to stop associating herself with philanthropic activities in the island country and to offer an explanation on what caused blindness in those affected.

Asin visited Sri Lanka for the shooting of her Hindi film ‘Ready’ opposite Salman Khan in July this year and had been to Jaffna and Vavuniya along with Lanka’s First Lady Shiranthi Rajapaksa. Asin conducted an eye camp there and had announced that she would cover 10,000 Lankan Tamils through subsequent efforts.

All those who have turned blind require huge sums to recover their eyesight, said Thirumurugan, convenor of the ‘May 17 Movement’. “It is the duty of the film star to offer an explanation on what had gone wrong. Further, she should stop engaging in philanthropic activities in the island nation, which are only aimed at giving legitimacy to the regime in Colombo,” he added.

Thirumurugan also wondered how Asin had been given access to rehabilitation camps in Jaffna, a region inaccessible even to International NGOs and UN bodies.

Criticising Asin’s decision to visit Sri Lanka for the shoot of her Hindi film, Thirumurugan has appealed to the Tamil Film Chamber of Commerce to ensure that her films do not get released in the State.

Previously, Asin’s Lankan connection had drawn the ire of the Tamil film industry, which had boycotted the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) event held in Colombo prior to her film shoot. Consequently, there were protests in the Tamil film industry against Asin and even calls to blacklist her from Tamil films. Earlier this month, protesters disturbed proceedings at her film shoot of Kaavalan in Mettupalayam.

  1. Idiot ..Get out of Tamil Industry…Even if you try no one from Tamil Field, (if they are really Tamils), will not support you..

  2. Wonder what went wrong? Please stop calling names at Asin she tried to give sight for visually impaired through this camp. She’s a very humble and good person.

  3. All Rumours…Indian Tamils no nothing about the Sri Lankan War….Now everyone is peacefull and Asin treated the Tamils…I am also a Sri Lankan Tamil……Nadihar Sangam…..Be sensible…..Dont be fooled…If u could please help the Jaffna Tamills by donations to rehabilitate their lives……Peace is 1000 times better than WAR…

  4. I agree man!!! I’m also Sri Lankan tamil…and i think these indian TAMILS…should mind their own business!!!!

  5. i dont understand how people can be so foolish to not notice how Asin will be given permission to go and do such things in a place where UN were also denied entry!
    this was a poorly staged drama which failed to achieve the target image buildup for herself and that govt’s warcrimes.
    i was thinking atleast by this drama some got a benefit.but now that also is shattered.
    one thing is for sure though.Asin-you just dont have anything left in TN anymore..bye bye…

  6. Pl dont lie u r srilankan tamils. A true tamil definitely realises the facts behind Asin’s visit to Sri Lanka. Further, whatever gone wrong with politicians in Tamil Nadu, we respect the tamilnadu people who supported us during the war time and they have the right to influence in our own bsiness.

  7. As you said, rehabilitation is must, at the same time we have to think about what is happeneing behind the scenes and aei lankan governments political agenda. otherwise after one or two decades sri lanka wont be a country for tamils and there wont a land for teritary.

  8. Hey fucking vijayakumar.. asin has good heart thats why went to sl and did some good work ha.,…

  10. Hey WE all are humans dnt fight like animals Sinhala, muslim tamil evrydbys hv red Col blood ASIN u r 100% crrct appriciate u Keep it up ………….

  11. Thamilagham is the Motherland for all Thamilar. For instance my forefathers moved(not migrated because certain parts of Ilankai were parts of Thamil Land) to Ilankai(Sri Lankan) in 12th Century AD. Ilankai Thamilar; please do not repeat the mistake of disrespecting our brothers in Thamilagham; we did it several times before; we have paid a heavy price. If our brothers were willing we all would have had Thamil Ealam by now.

    We are relatively left behind in progression because of the war. However our brothers in Tamil Nadu are surging forward; not only we can now find many male Thamil programmers in cities like London, New York, Chicago etc but even our Thamil sisters are becoming brilliant programmers; some of them have entered even the Board Room of Google.

    Therefore we just have to wait, concentrate on our studies and jobs, be respectful to our brothers and sisters in Thamilagham for say 25 years. Definitely a forceful Thamil Leader like the Great Raja Raja Cholan will emerge from Thamilagham. We will then show the Sinhalese who Thamilar are. Be patient.

  16. My frnd wht did u gain by fighting……the war only ruined our land and the palces where we lived…..Wht ever said and done afterall we are Sri Lankans….Try to rebuild the North East without talking BULSHIT….Which is just an utter waste……We have to regain our old fame in the 60’s and Early 70’s…..

  17. Please move to Thamil Nadu…They will accept you with open hands……Remember our native soil is always home for us…..Dont be an Ediot…India is emerging as a super power in the World….Every Indain is A proud Indian…..Dont try to ruin India……The strenth of INDIA is variety…..Do u say that Thamil Nadu shud be seperate…..Waht do u gain by Regionalism in this 21st Century…..Thalaivar Rajani acted with Aish…..Y he could have Chosen a thamil ponnu…..Pls….For GOD sake….stop this seperatism…..Dont tend to be Racists….ALL ARE HUMANS…U Bugger

  18. Alright, we dont beleive india, europe  or america and we expect zero from politicians and cine world from tamilnadu. but respect tamilnadu activists ratherthan our own politicians.Our history will not forgive mr.karunanithy. regaining our old fame is a nightmare……we will face a situation like what happened to palastene lands. hope we will act in every aspect while rehabilitating our peoples life

  19. Hang on! Where did I say Thamilagham should be seperate? No; not at all; I say a Thamil Leader will emerge from Thamilagham to lead all Thamilar which include Ilankai Thamilar. Ilankai Thamilar will regroup soon to take forward our cause; but we need support from Thamilagham; we must rule our land; we must settle scores with Sinhalese; blood for blood; flesh for flesh; life for life. We do not prefer living in the super power india like mice in a house.

  20. ZA; if you are an Ilankai Thamilan as you claim you would have gone through very hard times; we understand your frustrations on war; you have every right to campaign against war; we do not hate you. However almost all of us suffered because of our freedom struggle; but many of us still believe in for what we put our lives on the line. Like Jews revived their Hebrew and Jerusalem we will revive our culture and land. 

  21. Hang on! Where did I state Thamilagham should go seperate? No; not at all; Thamil Ealam must rule itself; a leader from Thamilagham will emerge to support that cause! if you are an Ilankai Thamilan as you claim you would have gone through very hard times; we understand your frustrations on war; you have every right to campaign against war; we do not hate you. However almost all of us suffered because of our freedom struggle; but many of us still believe in for what we put our lives on the line. Like Jews revived their Hebrew and Jerusalem we will revive our land; remember; the faith of an over 5000 years old society is at stake.

  22. Education and Studies was and is always our fame….think of that…try to get Foreign Investments in the Jaffna Peninsula….The North and East has plenty of Undiscovered Resources..Try to improve the North and East…Vote for the Best Leaders and Elect them to Parliament…and get the work done…THATS MORE PRACTICAL…..

  23. My before our land people like u shud be rehabilitated….Please dont spoil the next generation through ur narcotics…..U shud have lived half of your life……Let the Next generation live peacefully……Pls Pls for GOD Sake…..Stop all these nonsense….Thamilagam in INDIA has no war…and its still ruled my thamilar…..Dont u have a brain in u…..If you want a separate land…try to buy an Island in Philippines or Maldives….without talking utter bulshit…Please try to rebuild our Society….Children like to live peacefully…..That has become a day dream…PAst is Past…The freedom fight has made an impact…..But try to achieve things more pratically and diplomatically…..War is not a sollution at all…….Hope u people understand….Motherland is the soil u were born….

  24. You are probably born to a mixed Thamil-Sinhalese family who has taken to the Sinhalese side; Sinhalese are overeating, tasteless and a half-baked community; Take this; very soon Thamilar will take revenge; you weep or wail; Thamilar will liberate our land. 

  25. My frnd u probably mis undrstood…..Lets see wht u cud do….U are’nt a follower of the vedas…..U people will perish…..Peace is the theme of the 21st Century….U blady conservatives will indeed face the consequences..Lets wait and see ma………….
