Kamal Haasan slams Centre over abstaining from voting on UNHRC resolution against Sri Lanka
MNM chief Kamal Haasan has slammed the Modi goverment after India abstained from voting on the resolution on Sri Lanka in the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC). Kamal Haasan said that it is huge betrayal by Centre towards Tamil and Tamilians. The UNHRC had adopted a resolution against Sri Lanka's rights record, which gives the UN body a mandate to collect evidence of crimes committed during the country’s brutal civil war (2008-09) against the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE). India abstained from voting to maintain diplomatic ties with Sri Lanka.
