TGTE Salutes Those who Rose Up for Delhi Gang-Rape Student

TGTE Salutes People of India for Rising Up for Delhi Gang-Rape Student

Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) today saluted the people of India for rising up for the Delhi gang-rape student.

“People of India’s strong action against this brutal act give hope to women around the world that at last there is a country – India - where people are rising up against violence against women.” said Mrs. Balambihai Murugadas, Minister for Women, Children and Elderly Affairs of the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE).

“It is history in the making and we salute people of India for their leadership. While rape is happening around the world, never before it took a center stage like what is happening in India.” continued Mrs. Murugadas.

“There are several media outlets that brought attention to gang-rape and sexual assaults around the world, like the award winning UK’s Channel 4 documentary “Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields”.

“On behalf of my government, I send my deepest condolences to the young women’s family at this extremely painful and distressful time,” continued Mrs. Murugadas.

About Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE)

Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) was created in the aftermath of the bloody end of Sri Lanka's war; resulting tens of thousands of Tamil civilians were killed and large numbers of Tamil women were raped by the Sri Lankan security forces. UN documented war crimes and recommended an International Commission of Inquiry.

Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) is a democratically elected government of the Tamil Diaspora of Sri Lanka. Its actions are non-violent, democratic and diplomatic. It held internationally supervised elections in twelve countries to elect Members of Parliament (MPs). These MPs drafted and ratified a Constitution and elected a Prime Minister, a Cabinet and a Speaker.
