Parents of Maaveerar honoured in Kilinochchi

Parents of fallen LTTE cadres were honoured in Kilinochchi on Tuesday.

In one of a series of events around the North-East marking remembrance week, an event to honour the families of Maaveerar was held in Vivekanantha Nagar.

While the tradition of honouring the parents of fallen cadres in the run-up to Maaveerar Naal continued around the Tamil diaspora, this year is the first since the end of the war that Tamils in the North-East have held such events publicly.

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
