A memorial museum had been inaugurated by president Mahinda Rajapakse in Aranthalawa, Ampara in remembrance of the Aranthalawa massacre of 1987. The bus in which the Buddhist monks travelled has been preserved and the massacre is portrayed through sculptures by sculptor Anil Amarapura. The LTTE killed 31 Bikkhus including Ven. Hegoda Indrasara Thera on June 2, 1987. Pix by Wasantha Chandrapala

    This is VERY good. People have already forgotten what LTTE has committed. People think LTTE was the liberator.

    are you going to build museum for the 1956,1970 1nd 1983 riots in Colombo?

    patriot Sunday, 24 March 2013 03:09 PM

    why don't we forget the past , this museum will spread hatred only.

    Tangent Sunday, 24 March 2013 03:16 PM

    Well most CTB (SLTBO) buses on the road are in worse condition than the one in the picture.

    Tangent Sunday, 24 March 2013 03:18 PM

    They seem to be so happy. Funny?

    Kit udugama Sunday, 24 March 2013 03:26 PM

    Ms Pillai , Where is your brain ? And the U S broad ??

    We know where it is

    You do not want to know the horrendous brutal killings committed by the LTTE.

    Genghis Sunday, 24 March 2013 03:29 PM

    These sort of memorials will incite hatred....they could have done this in a dignified manner....

    Where's minister Karuna?

    mahan Sunday, 24 March 2013 03:37 PM

    Where is the Hon. Minister Karuna

    PRASANNAJIT Sunday, 24 March 2013 03:40 PM

    Is Karuna's statue also there?

    Gon Banda Sunday, 24 March 2013 03:42 PM

    "LEST WE FORGET" !

    ravi Sunday, 24 March 2013 03:46 PM

    why Karuna Amman not invited ?

    ramkumar Sunday, 24 March 2013 03:48 PM

    Should have been declared open by Mr.Karuna with a speech of history of the attack and current political situation.

    Muditha Sunday, 24 March 2013 03:49 PM

    Why?

    amitha mdun Sunday, 24 March 2013 03:52 PM

    he is trying to live with these hate... shame on you as a leader of a country !

    Doc Santa Sunday, 24 March 2013 04:04 PM

    Very true , Hatred will be wide spread, I think some element is trying to create another blood bath in SL and this time it will be mixed one, not only on racial basis and also on religion basis !

    Calistus Jayatilleke Sunday, 24 March 2013 04:24 PM

    They should have invited Hon. Karuna too for this special occasion.

    ss Sunday, 24 March 2013 04:30 PM

    must be both a patriot and a Colombian

    Banda Sunday, 24 March 2013 04:53 PM

    LTTE is a banned organization, Sri Lanka is governed by a democratically elected President and parliament, that is the deference.

    Mithila Sunday, 02 June 2013 06:42 AM

    Didn't u feel the way you treat to KARUNA today at that time. You could defeat the war through Hon. Ranil Wickramasinghe's peace agreement. Otherwise it wont be a easy task. Why u are not fair to share the credit with all these.
