according to Indian Media various views are being expressed subsequent to the attack launched on a group of Sri Lankan pilgrims yesterday in Tamilnadu.
DMK Patriarch M.Karunanidhi has stated that antagonism towards visiting sporting teams was deplorable.
He noted that he deplores Tamilnadu Chief Minister Jayalalitha Jayarams recent statement concerning two Sri Lankan football teams against which she said that they should be deported to Sri Lanka immediately.
The teams had been engaged in a tour of Tamilnadu during Jayalalitha's statement.
Expressing further views Karunanidhi noted that he however does not condone providing training for Sri Lankan security personnel on Tamilnadu soil.
Meanwhile Indian media reported that Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa was to engage in a recent tour of India.
When journalists had queried Karunanidhi in this regard, he had noted that he personally opposes President Mahinda Rajapaksa's visit to India.
He had also noted that it was futile to observe protests against President Rajapaksa's visit.
