Colombo, SLA 'poking spear into an unhealed wound' : JUSU

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 18 May 2010, 10:17 GMT]
Sri Lanka government and its army celebrating their Vanni war victory in the the North and East while the Tamils continue to suffer bearing the wounds inflicted by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) in Vanni is like ‘poking spear into an unhealed wound’, Jaffna University Students Union (JUSU) said in a media message titled Monday in Jaffna. Meanwhile, SLA key officials took part in several ‘Victory Celebrations’ held in Vanni mainland while people travelling along A9 road were kept waiting on sides for nearly four hours Monday while SLA conducted its celebration event in Ki’linochchi, sources in Jaffna said.

The following is the gist of the JUSU press release titled ‘Our people suffer with hunger in their stomachs and pain in their hearts’:

“Even after an year the wounds inflicted on the hearts of Tamils still remain as scars and celebrating it as a victory amounts to poking spear into an unhealed wound.”

“The minds of our people are still in a trauma and unable to express their feelings though the resettlement and rehabilitation publicized by the government moves at a snail’s pace with accompanying lame excuses for the delay.”

“The people are unable even to breathe freely and their voices are stifled while they are denied the development that the South enjoys.”

“One cannot freely move while abductions, killings, robberies and sexual violence are rampant in a country which calls itself a ‘Democracy’.”

“Our people in the peninsula are living corpses unable even to utter the names of the lost loved ones due to the prevailing restrictions and harassment.”

“How could they be expected to celebrate the ‘Mu’l’livaaikkal Victory’ of the SLA?” JUSU said in its media message.
