Its important to understand Kamal Hasan’s role in having IIFA Bollywood award to a genocide country. Kamal Hasan is the Chairman Media & Entertainment Conclave of FICCI. And this FICCI’s Media and Entertainment chapter has a greater role in choosing Srilanka as their destination to promote their businesses. And that’s why the IIFA has changed its mind from going to Seoul to Colombo . And this proposal would have not happened without the knowledge of Mr.KAMAL HASAN, who wrote a poem to condemn the London Bombing, and not uttered a word condemning Srilankan tamil genocide who happened to be a “HUMANIST” throughout his film. His post as Chairman is extended every year and this comes to end this June 2010, unless otherwise he wanted to continue. So he will say ” I have no Role in IIFA awards Colombo”.
The award function of Bollywood was organized along with IIFA has the second day program filed with Global Business Forum. The forum is aimed at investment opportunities at Srilanka which is crippling by war and the withdrawal of GSP+ tax concession made by European Union. International pressure from various sources has already cornered the Srilanka to investigate the crimes.
This FICCI Global trade meet will help srilanka to escape from the international pressures and so is our protest to this Unethical business practice of FICCI Organisation. And we requesting Mr.Kamal Hasan to resign from the FICCI’s Entertainment and media division’s chairman to protest the FICCI for supporting Mahinda Rajapaksa of Srilanka
KAMAL’s Double Game :: UNDERSTANDING KAMAL HASSAN
(I am requesting Kindly dont promote his letter to others as it is not only misleading but portraying FICCI as an ethical orgnaisation…Athirvu.com raised valuable question on his statement) FICCI is not headed by Mahatma Gandhi. Our demand is to make him to resign fr…om the FICCI not stopping him attending IIFA. We also know that he never attended IIFA awards not because he dont like that forum but he was never been invited as a special guest like Mamooty.
Kamal Hasan cleverly confused not only himself but also the fellow activists. The forum which he is a Chairman played a crucial role in choosing Srilanka than South Korea. FICCI’s head Mr.Rajan Barathi Mittel’s AIRTEL has all the vested intrests in eliminating freedom struggle and TamilEelam. This event would have not moved to Srilanka without Mr.KAMAL HASAN’s Knowledge. He know the venue well before Amitabh Bachchan. He still defends FICCI as an Ethical organisation.
FICCI appointed Mr Ameet Kumar, Assistant Director as a coordinator and also charging Rs10,000 to attend the Forum to strengthen the businesses. All these details were presented to KAMAL HASSAN and he didnt answered to the basic questions we raised. Instead he is trying to save the face of FICCI.
What stops him to resign from the post of Chairman if he has concerns for tamils. FICCI describes Srilanka as “NEW SRILANKA” in its registration for the Global Business Forum details
It says ……” …The day long forum will convene an elite galaxy of speakers representing industry, government, academia and intelligentsia in a candid discussion on the sectors that power Trade, Commerce & Investment and examine promising areas of cooperation between India and the ‘New Sri Lanka’ touching upon some exciting sunrise segments such as tourism, entertainment and cricket.,……” .If the entertainment is the agenda of the FICCI’s Business Forum then how come without Kamal’s consent the event is being scheduled in Srilanka, as he is the Chairman……
….To understand his role we have to look at his statement recited by him last year in the FICCI’s Conclave…
Dr.Kamal Haasan has remarked, “I am very happy to be guiding FICCI’s first ever initiative of this kind and to be associated with FICCI. We hope to be of genuine and substantial benefit to the Southern entertainment industry and help in bringing international participation to the conclave and enriching its content in every possible way…”
So friends IIFA-FICCI s’ event is a well planned activity by the Government and Corporate for their benefits with silent support from “Greats” of our time like KAMAL HASSAN.
