Sadly most of Sri Lankans have forgotten all the terror which we all went through during Prabhakaran era

U CAN TELL THE SAME STORY FOR ANOTHER 30 YEARS

Why don't we show these things to visiting Indian,Australian, US and UN missions.

Over to Ahmeer, not only tell for another 30 years , as long as the people who went through those periods will keep voting for MR brothers, as only due to brothers coordination and cooperation it was wiped out !!

MR completed the mission and closed the Prabakaran chapter. Bank remembering the dead is acceptable. The government riding on the war victory forgetting the needs of the day and the people is sad. Srinath

I had friends who barely escaped this ordeal... I still see them covered in blood.... May all who died attain supreme bliss of nirvana, and the injured good health and the families peace.

FORTUNATELY I WAS VERY LUCKY TO ESCAPE SINCE OUR BANK DID NOT HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO DEPOSIT WITH CENTRAL BANK ON THIS DAY . ANYWAY MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO ALL THE VICTIMS OF THE FAMILY MEMBERS.
JK Thursday, 31 January 2013 08:36 AM
Its not just the ones who lost their lives, there were many other families who were also effected... we should ensure that this never repeats...

We havent learnt anything from the whole thing, LLRC notwithstanding. Therefore we will be repeating the same mistakes again and again.

if you all don’t want this situation back then go for 13+
