25th Karumpuli Naal remembered

Tamils around the world are commemorating the 25th annual Black Tigers Day.

On the 5th of July 1987, the first Black Tiger Captain Miller attacked a Sri Lankan Army garrison in Nelliyadi in the Jaffna district.

Every year since, Tamils around the world commemorate Karumpuli Naal on this day.

Karumpuli Naal was observed widely in the North-East of the island until 2009.

A statue of Captain Miller was destroyed by armed men, suspected to be Sri Lankan soldiers, in 2006.

We need your support

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
