Come to Mullivaikkal memorial on 18 May – Tamil Cultural Council


The Tamil Cultural Council urged all people to gather on 18 May at the war memorial in Vellamullivaikal, Mullaitivu, to commemorate those who lost their lives in the 30-year-old war, as Mullivaikkal Week began yesterday (12).

Remembering the civilians who died in the war is the Tamil community’s right and that they should not be hindered to mourn their loved ones who passed away 13 years ago, the Council said.

They further said there had been numerous challenges in organising the commemoration at the Mullivaikkal War Memorial in the recent past and that, in some cases, its demolition had resulted in grave injustices to the Tamil people.
