The Tamil Nadu government on Monday asked the Centre to either ban or stop release of “The Family Man 2” webseries on Amazon Prime, saying it depicts Eelam Tamils in a “highly objectionable manner.”
The Tamil Nadu IT Minister T Mano Thangaraj said the trailer released aimed at distorting the historical struggle of the Eelam Tamils. According to him, there were “condemnable, inappropriate and malicious contents” in the serial.
IT Minister said in a letter to Information and broadcasting minister, “I would like to state that the above serial has not only hurt the sentiments of Eelam Tamils but also the feelings of the people of Tamil Nadu in large-scale and if allowed to broadcast, it would be prejudicial to the maintenance of harmony in the state.”
“The trailer has already evoked strong opposition from the people living in Tamil Nadu and the political parties in the state.” Thangaraj said.
He said, “While our brethren Eelam Tamils are struggling for decades to enjoy the fruits of equality, justice, peace and dignity in the island nation, it is highly unwarranted for an organization like Amazon Prime to undertake this kind of a smear campaign against the Tamils who are builder of India as well as many nations across the globe.”
