    A sad end to a bright future. Let hope all responsible will be brought to justice , today, tomorrow, weeks , months or years from now. The people should never forget this crime committed by uniformed tuggs.

    “First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out—
    because I was not a communist;
    Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
    because I was not a socialist;
    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
    because I was not a trade unionist;
    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
    because I was not a Jew;
    Then they came for me—
    and there was no one left to speak out for me.”

    Very sad a young mans life lost at the prime of his life. We are a democracy and dissension is an integral part of any democracy. But in this instance it was not so.

    The Tamil people have been claiming that the army was committing atrocities against them. We always wanted to believe that our army was discipline. Now I am beginning to think that they were correct.
