When you watch a 27-second video that goes viral, you can see that it is highly edited. While searching for the full interview video that Seeman gave to the Galata Tamil Channel, we came across an original full video released on March 28. Video Link
In the video, at the time stamp of 5.45 minutes, “You have been in the election campaign for so many days since your son split up..” asked by the host he said, “He will sleep on my chest in the morning. I will miss it.” Seeman said about his son on that video.
Followed by this at 8.45 minutes, the host shows the photo of LTTE leader Prabhakaran and ask Seeman to speak about him.
Seeman has named his son after LTTE leader Prabhakaran. Also, they are misrepresenting by mixing the video that Seeman said about his son and the part where he speaks about LTTE leader Prabhakaran.
In our search, Seeman said that Prabhakaran would sleep on his chest in the morning where it was originally about his son and it was editing and spreading it wrongly misrepresenting by mixing the video that Seeman said about his son and the part where he speaks about LTTE leader Prabhakaran.
