SL Police entices Sinhala students to confront Tamil students at University of Jaffna

[TamilNet, Thursday, 11 February 2016, 23:20 GMT]
Jaffna University Student Union representatives told TamilNet on Thursday that the Sinhala Police of the occupying Colombo was attempting to create confrontations between Tamil and Sinhala students at the university with the motive of using the opportunity to target and suppress the politicised sections of Tamil students at the University of Jaffna. A group of Sinhala students from South intervened in an on-going clash involving two groups of BCom Tamil students. They were backing one of the groups. Using the episode, Sinhala policemen entered the campus and ‘advised’ three Sinhala students to get admitted to Jaffna hospital. The SL police was now trying to twist it as a Tamil - Sinhala ethnic clash and to target Tamil activists using among the students, the representatives of the JUSU told TamilNet.

The SL police have received instructions from Colombo to find ways to silence the protesting voices against the imposed identity of ‘Sri Lanka’, especially after the hoisting of black flag on the so-called Independence Day on February 04, the representatives of JUSU said.

The University administration has recently put up posters against certain ‘improper behaviours’ by students at common places including the University Library and the various auditoriums.

The posters were put up after JUSU approached the administration following several complaints of culturally sensitive patterns of behaviour at public places within the university premises.

In the meantime, black flags were flown, as usual, on the so-called Independence Day on February 04, 2016.
