Heroes Day Torch was lit in University of Jaffna

[TamilNet, Sunday, 27 November 2011, 14:44 GMT]
Amidst partnership suppression of Sri Lanka and India against Tamils remembering the heroes who laid down their lives for the cause of Tamil Eelam, the customary Heroes Day Torch was lit in the University of Jaffna this time, exactly at 6:05 PM on Sunday. Unidentified people went to the top terrace of the five-storeyed students hostel of the university and lit the torch, the beams of which were seen in a wide area in the Jaffna city. Most people in Jaffna were seen serenely observing the day in their houses. The scenario very much resembled the ways how the day was observed by the people during the oppressive and terrorising times of the Indian Peace Keeping Force (IPKF) in the late 1980s, remembered the older generation.

While, ambitious elements in the diaspora try to hijack the Heroes Day for their sectarian legitimacy and recognition, and fall a prey to those who try to erase out the symbol of the struggle, the heroic resistance demonstrated in Jaffna was very touching, commented a diaspora social activist.

Meanwhile, all Heroes Day public meetings were prohibited in Tamil Nadu in the last minute, reports from Chennai said.
