[TamilNet, Wednesday, 30 November 2011, 06:23 GMT]
In an emotionally charged gathering organized by Chem-paruththi (Hibiscus flower) Movement and World Tamil Relief Fund in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday evening, Malaysian Tamils observed the Heroes Day, paying tribute to the Eezham Tamil heroes laid down their lives in the struggle for independence as well as remembering more than a hundreds thousand Tamil civilians deliberately killed in the war.

The remembrance started with observation of silence, followed by lighting the General Flame by Attorney at Law K. Arumugam, president of a human rights association and lighting the Heroes Flame by Attorney at Law S. Pasupathy, Trustee of the World Tamil Relief Fund.

More than 200 participants strew flowers at the memorial erected in the hall and paid tributes.

Following speeches the meeting ended with the raising of the slogan “The quest of Tamils is the Tamil Eelam homeland” and with the singing of the song “Believe in the birth of Tamil Eelam in future.”
