Traditional Maaveerar Naal commemorations at Jaffna University

Following from a morning tribute event at the University of Jaffna, students held a traditional evening service to mark Maaveerar Naal, featuring the lighting of the flame of sacrifice at 18.05.

As night fell in Jaffna, lamps were lit all over campus, decorating the Maaveerar monument in the courtyard which formed the centre of commemorations.


Earlier in the day students and staff paid tribute at the memorial whilst Maaveerar songs aired across the campus.

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
