The LTTE released the following statement on the honor conferred on the journalist:

“Mr. Gopalaratnam’s writing style, his presentation of opinions and his choice of titles for his works attracted readers’ minds and stimulated their thinking. His creations were succinct, in an easy-to-read style, and included all facets of an argument.

“Through his writings, Mr. Gopalaratnam made all people focus on the Liberation struggle and rendered great service to the Tamil nation.

“Since Mr. Gopalaratnam has deep talents needed in a writer—in particular, the ability to connect the future to the present--his every piece of writing is a living piece.

“Such a great journalist should continue his service to journalism and the Tamil nation. His service is also needed to guide young journalists in developing their skills. We commend his long service and extend our wishes for him to continue his service.”
