    This is not a Tamil Character. Tamil does not deserve a character introduced
    by Unicode in the name of Sanskrit.

    Unicode is not justified in forcing Tamil to accept a Sanskrit letter in
    Tamil. It is like forcing French to accept a special character (say it
    exists) ng to French.

    It is not acceptable. We had this struggle in the past and all was stopped
    after major debate. Now Unicode starting this process again to destroy Tamil
    and promoting Sanskrit is not acceptable. It must change.

    Please deprecate 0bb6 and save Tamil.
