The Hindu misquotes TamilNet

[TamilNet, Saturday, 03 September 2011, 03:20 GMT]
A feature by J. Balaji in The Hindu on Thursday misquoted TamilNet reporting a statement of the Sikh political party Dal Khalsa as that of TamilNet’s argument. “When India asks Pakistan to commute the death sentence of Sarabjit Singh, a convict in the Lahore jail, to life sentence on “humanitarian grounds,” why should it be keen on hanging the three Tamils convicted in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, asks Tamilnet, a website known for its pro-LTTE views,” the feature appeared in The Hindu said. TamilNet on 12 August reported the argument as stated by Dal Khalsa’s general secretary Dr. Manjinder Singh and spokesperson Kanwar Pal singh. The feature was titled ”Sikhs condemn New Delhi’s stand against nations in India.”

The Hindu feature was titled “Questioning Centre on planned hanging of trio, TamilNet rakes up Sarabjit issue.”

Contrary to the labelling by India’s national newspaper on the views of TamilNet the commitment of TamilNet is for the national cause of Eezham Tamils.
