In a statement here, Kamalhassan said `I beseech my fans to refrain from celebrations. An individual`s birthday loses credence or importance when genocide is practiced in our neighbouring island with renewed vigour`, he said.
`Language, colour, creed and caste can no more be used as excuses for intolerance`, he said.
Urging his fans to `redirect` their energy and enthusiasm towards human compassion on his birthday, he said `many are dying for a reason so unbelievably simple. They speak the same language Tamil, as I do. If my birthday can be used a tiny fulcrum to leverage public opinion against this genocide, apart from the honour of gaining your love, I would have one more reason to be proud of my birth`.
`I am not qualified to offer solutions to the Sri Lankan problem. Nevertheless, I am sensible enough to refrain and restrain you from celebrations when our neigbours are helpless spectators to genocide and mass funerals`, he added. - Agencies
