100 Tamil girls join the Army

15 November 2012 03:29 pm - 28     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


In a landmark event, nearly 100 Tamil girls will join the Sri Lanka Army on Saturday at a ceremony which is to be held at Bharathipuram in Kilinochchi.

They will be enlisted in the Army’s Volunteer Force and assigned to serve in the 6th Battalion of the Women's Corps.

After a course of military training they will be posted to the Kilinochchi and Mullaitivu districts in the hope they will facilitate the ongoing military-civil cooperation activities in these areas.

At Saturday’s ceremony according to Hindu customs and traditions, the parents will formally handover their children to the Army.

The girls were recruited to the Army after an interview conducted in the North and East. (Supun Dias)

    I studied history from Karuna-nidi and jayalalitha. The womanizer and the silent prostitute... We very well know the history..

    Is that concept alive in Srilanka. I thought we Sinhalese cremated this idea when Tamil language was made laughing stock in 1956 and made history by eradicating tamils in northeast 2 years ago.

    Raja,Why dont you let your sisters get marry Tamil nadu actors.

    Tony Montana Saturday, 17 November 2012 10:33 AM

    I would like to see recruiting some Muslim girls also.

    lasagne Saturday, 17 November 2012 10:29 AM

    Because Tamils are not permanent residents. Srilanka is only for Sinhalese

    Rajvi n Banda Saturday, 17 November 2012 05:51 AM

    Army’s Volunteer Forces!!!, why not to permanent forces?

    bandara Friday, 16 November 2012 09:55 AM

    why only tamil girls, what about recruiting some tamil boys as well

    Dear Raja, I don't think that we need to take the arms again. By war, we cannot achieve our final goal. Instead we have to work hard in a democratic way with the help of international community.

    krishan canagasabey Friday, 16 November 2012 09:10 AM

    Raja, I am an overseas tamil, and all I can say to you is forget starting any war again. Forget sri lanka, its gone, there will not be any tamils left, infact I would advice all sri lankan orgin tamils change there names to singhelse, speak singhalese, then at least in 2 generations, no one will know who is who!!! ha hahahah

    dachee Thursday, 15 November 2012 03:59 PM

    yes.. more tamils should join army and police.. then they can help gap filling between Sinhalese and tamils..

    Mr Raja.
    Dont show your stupidness.Look at the examples of Singapore.We need to think positively and look for a peaseful living with multy ethenic background - if you want to be success as a country.If any one follow similar to what you think.You will never live peacefully.
    So think before you say some stu[id comments like what you have just said.

    Game Pappa Friday, 16 November 2012 08:09 AM

    Narrow minded raja.

    fernando Friday, 16 November 2012 07:45 AM

    dear raja
    start from tamil nadu
    thats is your native place
    sri lanka is not for the people like you

    Namal Pavithra Friday, 16 November 2012 07:01 AM

    Previous war too was funded by the overseas Tamils, do you like another?.

    Karuna-nidi Friday, 16 November 2012 06:29 AM

    Ayyosalli... Raja Norway. Noway that is going to happen. These girls will fight for their mother land, i.e Sri Lanka.

    Raja Norway Friday, 16 November 2012 12:28 AM

    These Tamil girls will be forced to marry Singhalese soldiers and their children will be given Singhalese names. This is a very cunning and slow type of cultural genocide against the Tamils of Sri Lanka. Very soon, there will be another armed conflict in Sri Lanka, initiated by the overseas Tamils and I hope that these Tamil girls will join us, with the training they got from the enemy army occupiers.

    Namal Pavithra Thursday, 15 November 2012 05:28 PM

    One nation, one people & ONE ARMY. Our best wishes to all!.

    Karuna-nidi Thursday, 15 November 2012 05:02 PM

    ayyo salli... my senti-mantel eka..
