TAMIL Nesan reported that Bolly-wood icon Amitabh Bachchan is facing the ire of the Tamils for his acceptance to participate in the India International Film Awards function in Sri Lanka.
The IIFA is scheduled to be held from June 3 to 5.
Various Tamil groups from India and around the world claim that by visiting Sri Lanka, Amitabh would lend credibility to a regime responsible for the genocide that killed thousands of Tamils last year.
Amitabh had a fortnight ago said the sentiments of all should be respected when some Tamils staged a protest march from his Pratiksha bungalow to his Jalsa residence in Mumbai.
Malaysia Nanban reported that although Malaysia had gained independence about 52 years ago, there are still places where people relied on well water for their drinking needs.
Kampar Indian Progressive Front branch chief and Perak IPF deputy president A.Thangaya said that currently 10 Indian families living in Kampung Labu Kecil near Kampar depended on well water.
