Tamil councillor marks Remembrance Day at Mu値値ivaaykkaal West

[TamilNet, Saturday, 17 May 2014, 14:49 GMT]
Elected Northern Provincial Council (NPC) member Thurairasa Ravikaran from Mullaith-theevu on Saturday paid tribute to thousands of Eezham Tamils who perished facing the genocidal war 5 years ago in Vanni. The occupying Sri Lankan military soldiers were quick to discover the event and warned the TNA councillor not to proceed with the tribute. SL military intelligence operatives rushed to the spot with cameras taking video of the participants at Mul値段vaaykkaal West. The SL military officers said they had instructions not to allow any remembrance event to take place. However, Mr Ravikaran proceeded with the event stating that no body could stop him from gifting school children education material marking the remembrance of their kith and kin, who lost their lives in the war.

The SL military soldiers at Mu値段vaaykkaal attempted to block the small gathering and passed message to the intelligence wing operatives who came to the location within a few minutes with video cameras.

SL military officers who came in motorbikes ordered the NPC member and the people to disperse.

However, Mr Ravikaran was quick to stage the event paying tribute to Tamil fighters and the people who perished in the genocidal war.

After confronting the SL military officers, the NPC member proceeded with the event gifting children education material in remembrance of their kith and kin, who had sacrificed their lives in the genocidal onslaught.

While the SL military was staging events paying tribute to their fallen, why Eezham Tamils are not even allowed to remember their dead, the Tamil councillor asked.
