Question mark hangs over Arithra’s visa

Vaiko has asked the PM to ensure that a visa is given to 15-year-old Arithra, the daughter of Murugan and Nalini, both convicted in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case and are serving term in the Vellore Central Prison.
Arithra needs the visa to come to India to both meet her parents and pursue her studies here. Both Murugan and Nalini have been on a fast (must be partial) since June 26 demanding that her daughter be allowed to meet them, Vaiko wrote in his letter.
Vaiko’s politics are well known. He has been a consistent supporter of the LTTE. Does the government allow the child of a known and convicted assassin in India? Or is it wrong to make the child pay for her parents’ wrongdoing?
The visa if given has to be issued by the Indian high commission in Colombo.

    The Prime Minister should ask Vaiko first to obtain the GPS co-ordinates of the rat hole where the chief LTTE terrorist and his intel chief are so that the Indians can obliterate the scum-bags from the face of the earth.

    To **** with politics..

    We know who killed so many people (Rajiv Gandhi was one of them).. And we have caught the killer.. and we keep her alive.. ?

    This is non-sense. Gives a secure feeling to kill people. Only make sure, you kill a VIP. If you kill a vip, you can be a popular person. You can become rich, somehow. You can come out on bail.. and get VISA too !

    Nalini didnt conspire to kill Rajiv because Rajiv killed her great granddad. It was a political move carried out by a terrorist organisation in revenge for sending LPKF there. And it’s Nalini’s kid who was not even born then who is asking for a visa…just some points in their defence.
