Prof Peter schalk mentioned about the role played by Sir Pon Arunachalam and Chellappa Suntharalingam in arousing the feeling of Tamil nationalism. He said that one cannot forget the initiative Sunderalingam made on the need for a separate Tamil Homeland.

Dr zarni, a human rights activist, mentioned that the fact that Eelam Tamils are continuing with their political pursuits, even after a lapse of nearly 7 years after the genocide of 2009, shows the commitment of the people to their aim He mentioned that the oppressed underdogs should unite with comradeship and root out the evils. He said that the cause for the genocides in Eelam and Rohingya have been international geo politics
During a discussion about ‘accepting responsibility and international justice for the genocide of Tamils’ , Prof.Sri Ranjan, President of The International council of Eelam Tamils, journalist Nirmanusan Balasundaram and Dr Elilan Naganathan of Tamil Nadu made their contributions through Skype, whereas Mr Vibhishan of International Youth organisation participated directly responding promptly to comments and queries from the house.

Mr Suthanraj, minister in charge of media, TGTE emphasised that the provisions in the V.K.R should be followed through to the very end and should not turn out to be empty rhetoric He also described the steps that were planned to be taken by TGTE in this respect.

Mr Rajan drew the attention of the house to the plight of those who were the backbone of our freedom struggle and insisted that the diaspora should help them in their resettlement. This should be followed simultaneously parallel to the path of political endeavours. As this is an opportunity for various organisations to get together, this must be utilised to involve wholeheartedly in our struggle , instead of using it for mere lip service with a shallow agenda.

Finally, addressing on the topic ‘V.R and other resolutions following it’, journalist Gopi Ratnam explained how the aspiration for self-determination by various communities have been internationalised through the Westphalian agreement.

Mr.Chelian from T.C.C Germany and Mr.Sathiathasan from T.C.C France also spoke. The latter mentioned that V.K.R must not only used to reflect its past history, but must be used as the target for our future political goal.
The function had its merits elevated due to the serious issues raised by Jude, Jeya, Eelaventhan and others alike. Along with the wholehearted support of the participants, the seminar came to an end with the vow that all have to unite in involving in their service to the Tamil cause.
