    Shops owned by Keralites attacked in Tamil Nadu


    Chennai, December 08, 2011

    The political tussle between Tamil Nadu and Kerala over the Mullaperiyar Dam has shifted to the streets of Chennai, Coimbatore and Thanjavur with Tamil groups attacking shops owned by Keralites and forcing them to shut down on Wednesday.

    Retaliating to the attacks on Tamils in Kerala, a Tamil fringe group attacked a sweets shop owned by a Keralite in Chennai's Saidapet area, while a jewellery shop in T Nagar area was forced to down its shutters as a group of protestors staged demonstration outside it.

    Similarly, shops owned by Keralites in Coimbatore and Thanjavur were forced to close down by protesters.

    Demonstrations were also held outside the jewellery shops owned by Keralites in the state.

    A large police force has been deployed for security outside big shops owned by Keralites in Chennai.

    Meanwhile, Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa held a meeting with her cabinet colleagues and officials to discuss the tense situation in the Kerala-Tamil Nadu border areas.

    Leader of Opposition in the assembly A Vijayakant condemned the attack on Ayyappa devotees and bus passengers from Tamil Nadu by anti-social elements in Kerala.

    In a statement issued here on Wednesday, he said: "The central and the Kerala governments are watching the attacks on innocent Tamils in Kerala. Both the governments have to take strong action against the anti-social elements."

    ".... the weakness is in the Kerala politicians and not in the Mullaperiyar Dam," he said.

    On the other hand, PMK founder-leader S Ramadoss in a statement here demanded economic blockade of Kerala by closing the routes to that state for a week and imposing a ban on Keralites buying properties in Tamil Nadu.

    On its part, the DMK has called a meeting of its executive committee Dec 9 to discuss the party's stand on Mullaperiyar Dam issue. The meeting will be chaired by DMK president M Karunanidhi.

    Tamil Nadu government must provide adequate security to Keralite owned shops and businesses.
    And Kerala government must ensure that Keralites don't retaliate towards Tamils in Kerala.

    Absolutely disgusting. These attention seakers who are small fringe elements of no significance cause a lot of harm. These people have nothing but themselves in mind.

    How do you expect "sense of decorum to be kept" when Ayyappa pilgrims from TN were attacked across the border in a neighboring state?

    I do not support violence by any side. But it is unfair to condemn and expect restraint by one side alone.

    It started with TN Ayyappa Bhakths getting attacked in Kerala and TN registered vehicles getting vandalised.

    Get the sequence correct.


    Yeah they should..Oh wait ! they already tried and this was only a retaliation.



    Please..save us the moral high horse.

    Was it the "worst" political parties that attacked TN devotees and vandalised vehicles or the 90% literate geniuses ?

    We are two horned devils with a pointed tails and our neighbours are angels with fluffy feathers.

    Pre conceived notions run deep, very deep - especially here. Blame the Tamils for anything & everything. :frusty:

    There is no point in wallowing in victimhood mentality.

    Violence mustn't be resorted to by either side; it will lead to bad-blood, not easily wiped by time. The centre ought to play a moderating role as well, if the state governments/regional political parties are playing opportunists.

    The greatest trick the devil ever played was convincing the world that he doesn't exist. So I believe even with those horns and pointy tails Tamils aren't devils, they are impostors at best :taunt:

    No one is "wallowing" in victim mentality as such. Just telling the plain truth of what happened.

    Truth is if people here wanted can do pretty much more than just attacking one or two bakeries or breaking some glasses. But the point we have restrained from it especially with so much provocation on the other side shows our patience.

    And my post was specifically aimed at people getting into the default mode of blaming someone without getting to know what actually happened & others assuming the moral high horse when violence actually started there !

    I think the anger is justifiable but resorting to violence has consequences, and such that can last for generations. Both sides should think about it.

    People are like that only. By presenting the other side you are shaping a more balanced opinion too. Good job.
