    Why only Tamil civilians? Must mourn all civilians killed irrespective of ethnicity.

    Death brutality in any form is a disgrace to the society. Love respect is not easy but should be a motto everyone cultivate. All religion say it. However greed etc make politics society duffer. Do go through your religious teachings what philosophers prophets taught us.All diseased due to violence by the bullet must be remembered by us irrespective who he or she is
