In his message on the 11th Anniversary of the victory against the LTTE, Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa said the armed forces and police that defeated the LTTE, are engaged in yet another operation with the health sector to combat COVID-19 in the country.

"The armed forces and police that amazed the entire world by winning what was widely considered to be an unwinnable war, are now once again engaged in a joint operation with the state health sector in combating Covid-19," the Premier said.

His message further said, "On the 19th of May we mark the 11th anniversary of the victory against the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam. That was not a war against the Tamil people but against an organization designated by the FBI as the deadliest terrorists in the world.

Due to the defeat of the LTTE, Tamil people are now free to live as they wish. Tamil children are no longer forcibly recruited by the LTTE. Tamil politicians no longer live in fear of LTTE assassins. Furthermore, due to the absence of the LTTE, elections can be held in the Northern and Eastern provinces and that has safeguarded the sovereign rights of the people of those provinces.

All indications are that Sri Lanka is winning the battle against Covid -19 as well. The frontline role played by the armed forces and police in working with the general public, has undoubtedly been of immense help to the health sector in bringing the spread of Covid-19 under control in the present manner.

This once again reminds all of us that the armed forces and police are the sentinels of the nation, ensuring the safety of the general public in all crises whether man-made or natural - whether the crisis be terrorism, floods or disease.

We must always be mindful of the historic role that the armed forces and police have played in this country in safeguarding the peoples’ sovereignty based on universal franchise by defeating all attempts to destroy the democratic system of government.

On this 11th Anniversary of the war victory that amazed the whole world, I wish to reiterate that the manner in which the yahapalana government betrayed our armed forces internationally and the vicious manner in which they persecuted both retired and serving members of the armed forces have not been forgotten.

We once again pledge that justice will be done to all those who faced humiliation and persecution under the yahapalana government."

    The Army personnel being promoted deserve this, not only for saving our "MAATHRUBOOMIYA" from the ruthless LTTE in 2009 and freeing us from Terrorism, but also for supporting Sri Lankana during natural disasters/distress and now "PULLING OUT SRI LANKA FROM THE CALAMITY OF "COVID19", sacrificing beyound expectation to operate and maintain the many qurantine centers around the country. They have shown their expertise and professionalism in handling the emergency situation created under the coronavirus threat along with the support of the TRI-FORCES personnel and the Health Authorities of Sri Lanka, while maintaining law and order peacefully. They deserve more on the long run. "The Muslim Voice" thanks them profusely and wish them the very best, Insha Allah. The Daily Mirror does not publish our comments that give honour to those who do good work for our "MAATHRUBOOMIYA". "The Muslim Voice" hopes, at least Daily Mirror will publish this comment.
