University students protest against desecration of Parvathi Amma

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 23 February 2011, 12:02 GMT]
Thousands of the students at the University of Jaffna Wednesday noon boycotted their classes as the news of SL military's desecration of the ashes of late Parvathi Amma, the mother of LTTE leader Velupillai Pirapaharan, Tuesday night. The students vacated the premises after putting up posters condemning the uncivilized act of the Sri Lankan military and condemning the Sri Lankan authorities for blocking them from participating in the funeral procession of Parvathi Amma on Tuesday.

The students also condemned the administration of the University for entertaining the SL Colonial Governor of Jaffna, Maj. Gen. Chandrasri and EPDP paramilitary leader, SL Minister Douglas Devananda, who visited the University Wednesday. Upon learning that the students were planning to protest against them, Chandrasri and Devananda had hurriedly left the University premises.

Hand-written wall posters were seen at many places within the premises of the University.
