A new book on the war crimes committed by the ‘Indian Peace Keeping Force’ (IPKF) against Eezham Tamil civilians during 1987-1989 has been released at the Jawaharlal Nehru University Campus in New Delhi, Friday. The book, “In the Name of Peace: IPKF Massacres of Tamils in Sri Lanka” was documented by the Northeast Secretariat on Human Rights (NESoHR) and was published by the Delhi Tamil Students Union. The book release organized by The Coordinating Committee for Oppressed Nationalities was followed by the screening of a documentary film, “Mullaiththeevu Saga” by Someetharan on the genocide of Eezham Tamils. Observers said that opinion prevailed among the panellists and audience favoured the Eezham Tamil right to secede.

The book covered 12 massacres committed by the IPKF in the country of Eezham Tamils, which included the Jaffna hospital massacre in October 1987 and the Valveddiththu’rai massacre.

A. Bimol Akoijam representing the organizers, Satya Sivaram, an independent journalist and visiting professors, S. Santhosh and Sabir Ahmed spoke at the book release.

NESoHR was established in the country of Eezham Tamils in July 2004.
