TNPF holds Mullivaikkal memorial in Vadamaradchi East after ban

The Tamil National People’s Front moved their planned Mullivaikal remembrance event to Vaddamarachi East after a court order banned the organisation from leading commemoration events at Mullivaikal.


The event was held at the Vembadi Murugan temple where people lit candles of remembrance and lay flowers paying respects to those that had died.


The president of the TNPF Gajendrakumar Ponnamballam and event organiser Mannivannan addressed those that attended the remembrance ceremony.

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
