Mano Ganeshan condemns decapitation of Chelva’s statue

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 01 November 2011, 19:38 GMT]
Mano Ganeshan, leader of the Democratic People’s Front (DPF) has condemned the decapitation of the late Tamil leader Thanthai SJV Chelvanayakam as an act of barbarism by chauvinist elements. Mr. Mano Ganeshan has reminded the services of Thanthai Chelva by launching a non-violent struggle against the subjugation of Tamils not only in North and East but also in the Upcountry at a time when the Sri Lankan government disenfranchised the Upcountry Tamils.

Thanthai Chelva is still being revered as the father of Tamil community in the entire island.

The decapitation of Thanthai Chelva statue in Trincomalee should be considered as an act against the thinking of non-violent movement launched by the late leader, Mano Ganeshan further said.

The vandalism had taken place in the heart of Trincomalee city which is under the control of Sri Lanka government and its armed forces.

The decapitation of Thanthai Chelva statue should also be considered as an act of destroying all historical evidence of the history of Tamil community in their traditional land, he said.

The attack on Thanthai Chelva statue in Trincomalee has also stressed the need of taking forward the non-violent movement in achieving the legitimate demands and aspirations of the Tamil speaking people, Mr.Mano Ganeshan said in a press release.
