Actor Vijay’s fans held protest demonstration in Salem demanding the arrest of Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapakse for the ‘war crimes’ he had allegedly committed during the all-out offensive launched by the Lankan government against LTTE. In the name of ‘offensive’, what Rajapakse indulged in was nothing but ‘genocide’ of Lankan Tamils, the fans said.
‘The Lankan president has been accused of committing war crimes against Tamils by U.N. and the international community; he should be arrested at once and his trial should take place in the International Court of Justice,” the fans raised slogans against the Lankan president.
The protest march was led by Parthiban, head of Vijay Fans’ Club in Salem District. Fans numbering more than 500 participated in the protest. After raising slogans, the fans dispersed, announcing promptly that the next level of protest would be planned in a ‘grand’ and large scale.
