Tamils protest Amitabh Bachchan's Lanka visit
Amitabh Bachchan is in a quandary. To go or not to go to Sri Lanka is his dilemma after a series of protests and requests from Tamil fraternity urging the superstar to put off his visit to the island nation for the International Indian Film Academy Awards (IIFA) due to be held in July this year.

On Sunday a group of Tamils marched from the superstar’s Pratiksha bungalow to his Jalsa residence and met him to discuss the issue. Big B is the IIFA brand ambassador.

Even the Canadian Tamils have joined the protest.

“Amitabh Bachchan is a great hero for us in the Tamil diaspora, but we are very disturbed and profoundly saddened by our hero's proposed visit to a regime which has perpetrated crimes against Tamils,” said the Canadian Tamil Congress in a statement recently.

The Tamil community has always been at the forefront of protests against human rights violations against Tamils in Sri Lanka.

In response to the protests, Big B has assured that the sentiments of all communities will be respected.

“The sentiments of all must be respected and I hope that we can plan and execute that with understanding, peace and grace,” Amitabh wrote on his blog.
