The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) yesterday appealed to all students of the Jaffna University not to permit any recurrence of clashes or similar incidents that will hinder genuine reconciliation amongst communities in the country.

Issuing a statement, the party said it was deeply shocked by the clashes. “We regret that several students have sustained injuries during the University clash and that Sinhala students had to be evacuated as a precautionary measure,” it said.

Whilst inviting the students who have been evacuated to return to Jaffna, the TNA urged the students who are remaining in the university to welcome them and assure them of their safety as they resume their studies.

“We call upon the students and the authorities to work together in creating the right conditions for students from different backgrounds to live and study together in the University in the future,” the statement said.

    Investigate the root cause and sack the students who instigate racism, the country has suffered enough and more, it may be in the north or south anyone involved in inciting racism should be punished.

    Students should try to respect the cultures,values, and belief of other races. Do not give chances to the MR team to play games to create un rest in the country.

    I wonder who organise these functions in the university which is not the political place. Never happened in the past. Find out both parties who created and punish them.
