Prem Gopal dances for Eelam

May 8, 2009
Click here to watch Prem Gopal dance for Eelam


Having experienced the Sinhala government’s racism towards Tamil at the age of 10, Prem Gopal and his family plea to the people of Tamil Naadu to save their brothers and sisters being massacred by the Sri Lankan government.

After his dance, which was met with a standing ovation, Prem explains his story ……

When i was ten years old, I travelled from Jaffna to Colombo with my mum, dad and older sister. We were in a mini bus with 30 other people. in Candy, the Sri Lankan Army stopped the mini bus. The road was wide and by it a small stream was running. They made us all get off the bus. Why? Because we were Tamil. Do u know how we all stood there? ‘With our hands up’. We stood there for about half an hour………. story goes on.

Please watch it right to the end.

    This video shows the suffering the LTTE brought upon the innocent tamils living in that area….because remember there was a time where things were peaceful..the LTTE was given half of lanka…the people living in that area was peaceful..until Prabhakaran felt greedy for the rest of the land..therefore they started Bombing Colombo areas which aroused a War..that war made the families loose their limited freedom provided by the LTTE….thanks to the SL army the rest of the survivors at least gets their freedom back in huge amounts..better than the way LTTE was treating them….1st of all can you even name prabhakaran a pride to Tamils?? just take a clear look at the guy..the places he lived…didnt even contain a single book to show that hes educated or fit enough to become a leader..he a person who just wants power and land…..If you care so much about the rest of the Tamils who survived then the best thing for the Tamil people who are abroad is to stop discriminating the Sri Lankan government, form an Organization, collect money as much as you can, obtain the permission to go to Sri Lanka and use that money to supply food and other comfort to them because the Sinhalese here has done so much deed to these people…..

    Hi Prem Gopal,

    As you may know, there are whole a lot of Tamils in Tamil Nadu, but they are not still aware of what is going on in Tamil Eelam. How tamils in Tamil eelam are fighting hard to gain basic freedom at least.

    Hey Prem…….Hats off for you. You are using the a bit of chance to brought out the tamils problem to Tamil Nadu audience.

    Thank you ……..prem….thank you so much.

    Best of luck with this Dance program ..

    We support you to win this dance program…..

    u think all the tamils protesting in all over the world are idiots.. jus u and ur SL government and SLA know whats actually goin on in that island?
    Where did u get the fact from… that tamils had a 50% of the island, and prabhakaran wanted more of the land???
    We never had 50% of the land … and we never asked for 50% of the land…
