NPC reiterates not to change name of Nayinaa-theevu islet off Jaffna

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 24 November 2015, 17:29 GMT]
Northern Provincial Council (NPC) officials on Tuesday released a letter to media, which it recently sent to the SL Minister of Provincial Councils & Local Government Mr Faiszer Musthapha, reiterating NPC's demand on the continuation of the historical Tamil name of Nayinaa-theevu (Nainathivu) islet in the official records. The Colombo regime, in a recent Gazette notification relating to the delimitation of wards 08 and 12 of Veala'nai Divisional Council, had deployed a Sinhala term in Tamil as "Nagadeepam" ("Nagadeepa" in Sinhala) to denote the residential wards under three GS divisions in the islet. The NPC had earlier complained in writing to the SL Minister opposing the name change on 06 November. However, the SL Minister was later twisting the issue other way around in the media reports in Colombo.

CVK's letter to SL Minister on Nayinaa-theevu
The SL Government would "[n]ot give the nod to change the name of 'Nagadeepa' Island to Nainativu", the SL minister was quoted as saying by "Ada Derana" website, the NPC Chairman noted in the letter.

“This appears to be a total misconception and misunderstanding of the whole subject; and the matter is other way about,” the NPC Chairman said his letter dated 12. November, 2015.

“What we wanted is the continuation of the historical name of "Nainativu”. There is no question of name change. We do hope that the review committee on delimitation of Local authorities would rectify the error,” Mr Sivagnanam said in his letter to the SL Minister.

The occupying Navy of genocidal Sri Lanka and the Chief Buddhist monk stationed at Nayinaatheevu are behind the Sinhalicisation and Buddhicisation move.

The Sinhala Buddhist domination and occupation, purely based on mythical claims, is being accelerated at the strategically located Nayinaa-theevu islet where popular Saiva and Islamic sites of worships have existed for a long time along with a Buddhist temple.
