The momument was flattened by the university administration, as it was seen as an obstruction to unity and reconciliation. (Sithum Chaturange)

    Let him rebuild it at his own cost. You need to think before you leap

    Makes sense. This government thrives on creating rifts among communities. Destroying the monument is highly sensitive and a disrespectful act. Its just a memorial to remember the war victims. Absolutely nothing to do with terrorists. But then what more can you expect from this government? They are diverting peoples attention from real issues to cover up their faiulures.

    What a waste of Money and time University Administration should bare the cost, for stupid things.

    There are no middle class Jaffna Tamil students studying at the Jaffna University, they are all at Peradenia or Colmbo Universities. Jaffna University needs to be shut.

    Then not rich people the all are abroad. So you want to close the door for poor people.

    Build one for Easter bombers too. We should not discriminate terrorists also.

    No need to close the university. Where's the spine of the self-called hero of this government? If this happened, before 2020, there would have been protests, all over the country of the fake, self-called patriots of Pohottuwa.

    How nice to see a Nutty Professor sporting a suit in an area that depicts a paddy field. R W can learn a thing or two.

    It seems once again the LTTE has raised its head by the help of RANIL WICKREMASINGHE.

    Many countries around the world condemned the demolition so the reconstruction was forced.

    Great job, well done. So proud of our sinhala government. Maybe we should build one to commemorate Sahara too
