"To Say That Tamils Are Being Persecuted in Sri Lanka is Bunkum" - Gayathri Jude
"To say that Tamils are being persecuted in Sri Lanka is bunkum," said an Australian who recently visited Sri Lanka. Gayathri is not just any Australian, nor is she any ordinary Tamil.
Gayathri Jude is the daughter of Tamil Tiger leader Velupillai Kumaru Pancharatnam, better known by his nom de guerre, George Master.
George Master was in the custody of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) when his daughter in Australia decided to visit Sri Lanka in hopes of seeing her father.
