Rajinikanth cancels Sri Lanka visit following protests

Actor Rajinikanth who was scheduled to hand over to Tamils, the keys of 150 homes built for them on April 9 in Jaffna, Sri Lanka, has pulled out of of the event, The Hindu newspaper reported.

The houses were built by Gnanam Foundation, which has been named after Lyca Group chairman Subaskaran Allirajah’s mother, at a cost of Rs. 22 crore.

Rajinikanth said he agreed to visit the island nation since he wanted to see the places where Tamils lived and died for their cause.

“Though I disagree with the reasons given by VCK chief Thirumavalacan and MDMK chief Vaiko, I will not participate in the event”, the actor said in a statement.

Rajinikanth said he planned to meet Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena and urge him to find a lasting solution to the fishermen issue.

“I am not a politician, I am an artist. My job is to entertain people. In future, if I get a chance to visit Sri Lanka to witness the place of the ‘holy war’, don’t silence me”, he said.
