A group of Jaffna University students have forcibly completed the partly built Mahaviru Memorial in the university premises and opened it for display on Monday night despite University Grant Commission (UGC) instructions to stop work, Jaffna security authorities said.

Jaffna University Vice Chancellor Rathnam Vigneswaran stopped the construction work on the partly completed Mahaviru Memorial because the UGC did not approve it.

Jaffna University students who held the Mahaviru commemoration day in front of this half completed memorial recently had installed the other part of memorial built in a separate place after bringing it to the university premises secretly.

The upper part of the memorial displays several signs used by the LTTE to commemorate the Mahaviru day and a symbol hand emerging from the ground.

Those who built the memorial have not been yet identified and any necessary actions do not seem to be taken by the university administration. (Romesh Madushanka)

    LTTE has become a hindrance to Uni Education in the North just as JVP in the South.

    Casteism is the bane of Hindu society. Still talking of caste in 21st century.

    Whether we take it as right or wrong they have all the rights to do what they want within legal frame work. I don't see any thing wrong commemorating their love ones. They may be commemorating theirs fathers , brothers or may be their distant relatives , It is inhuman to suppress such act . The first step of reconciliation is share their sorrow.

    Wow great comment. You are a true Sri Lankan.

    Indika Wednesday, 13 February 2019 10:15 AM

    It is illegal when the UGC banned it.

    SIra Wednesday, 13 February 2019 01:41 PM

    They cannot comomerate it in the public place, thats all. They can do it their homes. nobody is opposed to it. get the army to destry it. A terrorist org cannot cannot be remembered in a public institution Even in tamil Nadu it was banned.

    Shan Wicks Wednesday, 13 February 2019 05:29 AM

    Very important to have a news item and to arouse the communal feeling instead solving the drug menia.

    palitha Wednesday, 13 February 2019 05:50 AM

    We want Gota to be our ext president.

    Faz Wednesday, 13 February 2019 06:14 AM

    It's impossible to build this secretly and this news may disturb the South it's better you don't publish this type of articles.

    Sil Wednesday, 13 February 2019 07:42 AM

    If not permitted how they have done such thing,either they should remove it or govt. should remove it and people in charge of supervised should severely punished,discipline should well look after

    Amara Wednesday, 13 February 2019 07:57 AM

    There should be a standard. If the JVP can commemorate their butchers, the LTTE should also be given the same right. I lost 2 close relatives to the JVP during 87-89. One was killed because he went to work and my own father was threatened by the JVP because he had the audacity to send me to school!

    Jude Wednesday, 13 February 2019 09:26 AM

    Lets NOT make a issue!!?? Ignore it , let them have this ONE !!??

    Sangaralingham Wednesday, 13 February 2019 09:33 AM

    Life is always expectations of some type and appreciation.death is not happy thing. Remembering the death of some or many by society cannot be considered harmful

    SAM Wednesday, 13 February 2019 10:16 AM

    This is a sad state where students given free education not only are making a hindrance to public funds but also waste there valuable time making use of their talent and completing their course on required time. Are these so called agendas done in neighboring countries?Are their education standards and performances in par with them? Do they complete the same time you guys take to complete? How many Nobel Prize winners we have? How many are we expecting?

    fare thought Wednesday, 13 February 2019 12:36 PM

    Do you think that Uni. Administration will catch the culprits or help them secretly? How they can bring a pre-cast heavy article without knowing security of the Uni.?

    M Kuruparan Thursday, 14 February 2019 05:18 AM

    First of all this is NOT a memorial for LTTE. This is for those who have died in Mullivaikkal , ordinary Tamils. Without knowing the fact this News was written ! ! ! Or intentionally written ? ? ?
