Renowned Anti-corruption activist and political cartoonist Aseem Trivedi has volunteered to take the cause of Eelam Tamils who are living in hostile conditions ever since the racist Sri Lankan Forces massacred over a hundred thousand Tamil civilians at the end of the 30 year bitter struggle waged by the Tamil Tigers for acquiring independence.

Aseem told to the reporters that it is proven beyond doubt of what had actually happened there was genocide, and he would certainly try to raise awareness among the North Indians on the issue.

For this purpose, he has paired hands with Chennai based Srinivas Tiwari and Bihar MP Som Prakash Singh two of the prominent Eelam activists in the country.He said he is planning to do a series of paintings and cartoons on the Tamil genocide and take the message across India.


He was in the city recently to express solidarity with college students, who were on an agitation in support of Tamil Eelam, a separate country for Tamils of Sri Lanka.
