[TamilNet, Thursday, 25 November 2010, 11:52 GMT]
Unidentified men arriving on motorcycles Thursday morning entered Jaffna University premises and distributed leaflets calling the people of Jaffna peninsula to observe the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) Maaveerar (Great Heroes) Day on Saturday. The men had quickly left the campus to the chagrin of Sri Lanka Army (SLA) authorities in Jaffna who assume that Jaffna University and its surroundings are under their tight control, sources in Jaffna said. Wall posters calling people to observe the Heroes’ Day are found pasted on the walls in the environments of Jaffna University. The leaflets and the posters had a photograph of the LTTE leader Velupillai Pirapaharan which shows him paying his respects to the Great Heroes who had sacrificed their lives to the cause of Tamil Eelam, the sources added.

The birthday of the LTTE leader on Friday was remembered in the leaflets and the wall posters.

‘We will never forget the sacrifice of the Great Heroes! We will pay our due respects to them!’ were the slogans found on the distributed leaflets.

The leaflet had called on the people of Jaffna peninsula to gather together to observe the Great Heroes’ Day on Saturday paying their sincere respects.
