Referring to his recent statement that the DMK may tie up with the Congress, he said that the decision at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva had shut ‘the Tamil doors for the Congress permanently’.

By abstaining from voting on a resolution seeking an international probe into allegations of war crimes in Sri Lanka, India should hang its head in shame, Karunanidhi said.

He stated that US, which was not affected by the war in Sri Lanka, sponsored a resolution thrice against Sri Lanka for violating human rights.

India's decision to abstain ‘is akin to a mother killing her own child’, said Karunanidhi.

US-sponsored resolution calls for an international investigation over alleged human rights abuses during the war in Sri Lanka. Colombo has said it will not agree to an international probe.

Karunanidhi denounced the Indian government's logic and said that even Congress members in Tamil Nadu would not accept the argument.

“If India believed in non-interference in others' affairs, how it took sides over South Africa's apartheid policy or help create Bangladesh,” he asked.
