Tamil university students get Sinhala summons for military course

[TamilNet, Friday, 20 May 2011, 18:58 GMT]
Genocidal regime of Mahinda Rajapaksa in further militarization of state in the island introduces an obligatory course conducted by the military for all students selected for the universities. The three-weeks course in selected centres of the SL Armed Forces begins on Sunday and Tamil students received summons letters in Sinhala, BBC News said Thursday. Meanwhile, Students Unions in the island have moved to the Supreme Court to stop the programme, and the court on Saturday has asked the SL Attorney General to postpone the commencement of the programme by one week.

Colombo gives a name ‘Leadership Training Programme’ for the course, implying that it thinks that a genocidal Army is the best institution in the country to impart knowledge of leadership to university students, commented a university academic.

The training includes physical drills and conflict management in a bid to increase mental and physical fitness, as well as a course on Sri Lanka’s future and global changes, the BBC reported.

The military’s programme is particularly dangerous to the Eezham Tamil students whose country in the island is being occupied by the genocidal military of Sri Lanka, Tamil political observers said.

A UN panel report has recently indicted the Sri Lanka Army for the serious war crimes and crimes against humanity it had committed.
