Tamil women forced to marry SL soldiers-Karunanidhi

18 December 2012 06:52 am - 54     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Alleging that Tamil women in Kilinochchi and Mullaitivu districts in northern Sri Lanka were being forced to marry Sri Lankan Army personnel, DMK leader M. Karunanidhi on Monday asked the Union government to ascertain the facts and take it up with the neighbouring country.

In a statement, Mr. Karunanidhi said students of Jaffna University were arrested and tortured in prison by the Army for observing “heroes’ day” recently.

“The mere mention of the name Yazh (short for Yazhppanam or Jaffna) provokes the Sinhalese. Tamil scholars were attacked in the Jaffna World Tamil Conference and the Jaffna University library was burnt down,” he said and wanted India’s intervention to stop the incidents. (The Hindu)

    crazy begger

    Imran Hussein Wednesday, 19 December 2012 06:25 AM

    Jacoob, I agree with Calistus J. Tamils were never suffered in this country like they do now (during the war and post war). The sole reason was VP. There were troubles in the past I dont deny it but never to this extent. LTTE had golden opotunities during R Premdasa's era and then during CBK time for a fair settlement. But the greedy VP wanted the whole cake. Every Tamil should curse Prabakaran in my view.
    This regime is so busy isolating Srilanka again.

    Aney Machang Wednesday, 19 December 2012 06:47 AM

    This man does not need the underwear anymore, he does not feel whether the pants are on even in public and today no body in TN take this old fool seriously!

    mohamed asfar Wednesday, 19 December 2012 08:58 AM

    firoz Wednesday, 19 December 2012 09:49 AM

    Jacoob , is there some sort of blood test that shows whether blood is pure tamil , sinhalese or muslim ? Or cast ? Or nationality ?

    You can never guarantee whether your 'blood line is pure or not'. Please stop believing outdated cast and divisional jargon

    Anu Tuesday, 18 December 2012 07:04 AM

    Why, you want to marry them?

    FaisalS Tuesday, 18 December 2012 07:06 AM

    Sinhalese and Tamils should be encouraged to marry each other and have mixed children. This is a good way to establish peace in the country. There is no such thing as "pure Tamil blood"

    heros day for ltte what a joke via DM Android App

    Dinesh Tuesday, 18 December 2012 07:20 AM

    I feel sorry for the Army personnel....
    From a different angle....this sort of marriages creates a much strong and more intelligent generation (Gene diversification)

    DMK - What about forced marriages taking place in TN (Including Child marriages). Do you need Sri Lanka's intervention to stop the forced marriages in TN?

    Yohan Perera Tuesday, 18 December 2012 07:43 AM

    Was he drunk when he made this statement. Because the lie he has said is not convincing at all...

    sanul Tuesday, 18 December 2012 07:44 AM

    Will USA allow muslims to commemorate the death of Bin Ladan ??????????

    Calistus Jayatilleke Tuesday, 18 December 2012 07:46 AM

    If actually the Sinhala soldiers are marrying Tamil women, it should be celebrated as a giant step towards racial integration and eliminating the so called discrimination. As to Jaffna students celebrating a "hero's day", there is no such "hero" any more because in any case, Prabahakaran was one of the worst cowards who betrayed the Tamils in the North and East.

    Karu Tuesday, 18 December 2012 07:45 AM

    Can't deny 100 %........same time it's not forced, may be convinced.
