    Indian Government is playing a high drama in the ongoing conflict there alongwith Srilanka. The Indian Government is directly involved in the Genocides. To fool the people of the world they are propogating this. The hospital is being used to transport kidney, eyes etc and to treat the wounded soldiers.
