Parents of Maaveerar honoured in Mullaitivu

The parents of fallen Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE)  cadres were honoured in Udayarkattu and Puthukkudiyiruppu in Mullaitivu District earlier  this week. 

In Puthukkudiyiruppu, over 100 Maaveerar families were honoured and given coconut saplings. 

In Udayarkattu, a flag was hoisted by Joseph Muniamma, the mother of the four fallen cadres. Locals lit lamps and laid flowers to pay their respects to those who had sacrificed their lives for the Tamil struggle for liberation. During November, commemorative events take place across the North-East to honour their lives. 

Parents of the Maaveerar were also given coconut saplings.


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
