Maaveerar Naal commemorated in Mannar despite forced cancellation and threats of arrest


Members of the Northern Provincial Council and Tamil families in Mannar convened at the local church to commemorate Maaveerar Naal after having to cancel the original event due to police threats of arrest.

The remembrance event which was initially planned to be held in the village of Keeri was cancelled as people faced threats of arrest for conducting the event, and rescheduled for the evening at the local church compound.

The event was held late in the evening and attended by Northern Provincial Councillor Deniswaran and the leader of the Ilankai Tamil Arasi Katchi (ITAK) youth wing Sivakaran.
