Jaffna Osmania College reopened

[TamilNet, Thursday, 25 September 2003, 18:55 GMT]
The Jaffna Osmania College, closed in 1990 following the displacement of Muslims from the Jaffna district, was reopened Thursday with the participation of Mr.Kavianban, the Jaffna district education head of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), education sources in Jaffna said.

Jaffna District Director of Education, Mr.P.Vikneswaran, was the chief guest at the event. Mr.B.A.S.Subia, the Co-ordinator of Shipping, Ports Development, Eastern Development and Muslim Religious Affairs Ministry, also participated at the opening event.

With the re-opening of the A-9 highway after the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), several Muslim families displaced from Jaffna and living elsewhere in the country have returned and resettled in their lands, sources said.

In order to provide education to the children of the resettled Muslim families, the Osmania College has been re-opened, said education sources.

The Welfare Society, now operating in Jaffna to look after the interests of the resettled Muslim families, reconstructed the damaged college, and Mr.M.S.A.M.Mubarak has assumed duties as Principal of the College, sources said.

The buildings of the college were destroyed during the war and furniture was robbed, sources said, adding that the re-opened college has not been provided with any basic facilities yet.
