Art of Living exponent Sri Sri Ravi Shankar today said that the 1.25 lakh Sri Lankan Tamils living as refugees in the country should be given immigrant status like their counterparts in Europe and America.

"Sri Lankan Tamils living in Europe and America have jobs, businesses, have a home and are well off, while those living in Tamil Nadu since 1983 are still languishing in the camps are refugees. They should be integrated into the country," he said in a statement.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, who kicked off his one-week long Tamil Nadu tour yesterday from Kancheepuram, said that this would be a "human" gesture to give hope and opportunity.
