I killed some 2000 to 3000 soldiers in one night -Karuna

20 June 2020 09:26 am - 61     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Former Minister Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan alias "Karuna Amman" claimed that he is more dangerous than Covid-19.

“Chairman of the Karthivu local government body has said that I am more dangerous than the coronavirus. That is true. When I was a member of the LTTE, I killed some 2000 to 3000 Sri Lankan army personnel in one night at Elephant Pass. I have killed more in Killinochchi. That is certainly higher than the number of lives the coronavirus has claimed in Sri Lanka,” he said addressing a gathering in Navadinveli, Ampara yesterday.

He said that Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa has extended him an invitation to join the parliament from the National List. However he added that the invitation was declined as he would be elected to parliament with the people’s mandate.(KK)

    Sanchuthan Ganeshalingam Saturday, 20 June 2020 04:31 PM

    True. We the fools fighting by the name of race, religion, language, cast, school...etc. For our rulers there is only one goal, loot from the general public.

    Hussain Athas Saturday, 20 June 2020 03:52 PM

    Why the Defence authority is not arresting this terrorist.

    Dharma Saturday, 20 June 2020 04:09 PM

    Karuna amman, it is not a civilized way to speak about the number of people killed by you- you have to say sorry for that-, this is the mentality we Tamils are suffering

    k.soysa Saturday, 20 June 2020 04:32 PM

    You will give an account one day. Be assured of that.

    Pream Madarasinghe Saturday, 20 June 2020 04:36 PM

    Janaka Saturday, 20 June 2020 04:58 PM

    What action the Government taken against Karuna Amman statement , Arrest him immediately and put him in Prison without fear he made this statement saying he killed 3000 army personnel. This statement worst than Zaharan Easter sunday blast , Where is our Buddhist monks by now they should have come to the road with protest

    Mohamed Zainudeen Saturday, 20 June 2020 05:17 PM

    And he will be one of the top team in the SLPP Government. God Bless Sri Lanka

    vince Monday, 22 June 2020 12:58 AM

    why only Sinhala Buddhists. Why not everyone. you are pathetic

    Leo Saturday, 20 June 2020 06:06 PM

    Smells political...why this statement now..

    Tony Saturday, 20 June 2020 06:12 PM

    The 2000 you killed got at least 10000 family and friends you got your own enemies. So be careful ! "As ye sow, so shall ye reap "

    Jeeves Saturday, 20 June 2020 06:16 PM

    Boasting that he has killed thousands of our national heroes? Absolutely disgraceful!!

    ChanakaJ Saturday, 20 June 2020 06:18 PM

    What about compensation to the families for those he has killed? Many were the main breadwinners!

    Antany Peter Saturday, 20 June 2020 06:23 PM

    A suicidal statement to prove his toughness to get more votes. One of the worst public comments I have heard recently, very poor PR skills. Obviously Tamil politicians don’t have wise advisors. This statement can put Karuna in difficult situations.

    Don Saturday, 20 June 2020 06:41 PM

    Where is this brave President and Attorney General, why you are not going to arrest him (Karuna), he himself admitted killing thousands of soldiers? He is the Deputy Chairman of SLFP as well. Where is K.P?

    Clau Eri Saturday, 20 June 2020 06:43 PM

    It's shame for a President to keep in his government a person who killed 2000 ot 3000 military personnels in one night. He publicly saying that. Shame for the President.

    Kolonnage Daya Perera Saturday, 20 June 2020 07:00 PM

    For the crime he had committed as a terrorist, Karuna could confess and plead for clemency or beg for a Presidential pardon. Instead of doing so can he boast and request the people to send him to Parliament to be a lawmaker!

    ari Saturday, 20 June 2020 07:08 PM

    This murderous ex-terrorist is lying through his teeth about the numbers. Irrespectively, this utterance is very repulsive and should be condemned by one and all.

    Ranjit Saturday, 20 June 2020 07:13 PM

    "But I am enjoying and not serving life sentence, thanks to the brothers"

    JRG Saturday, 20 June 2020 10:28 PM

    Hope someone could bump him off

    Rumesh Rathnayaka Saturday, 20 June 2020 10:38 PM

    Nothing wrong in his statement. Killing in a war is ethics whichever the side.

    Nilanjala Fernando Saturday, 20 June 2020 10:52 PM

    How many nights in 30 years. Anybody can guess?

    Ramasamy Saturday, 20 June 2020 11:12 PM

    Curse of Srilanka!! Still hanging around.. Don't worry hell is awaiting

    Ascot Dexter Saturday, 20 June 2020 11:20 PM

    This is a national disgrace to have him associated with politics. Jail this murderer and prosecute him based on his own evidence or at least jail him or few years until the case come up - forget any other betrayal of LTTE to favor the govt. war effort. Once a murderer is always a murderer.

    Mihira de Alwis Saturday, 20 June 2020 11:37 PM

    Sadly he is using this to get elected. Where are the Cardboard Tarzan's Weerawansa and Gamanpila? Custodians of the Sinhala race, why are you quite on this?Damn shame that Karuna is able to boast about killing our brothers so openly.

    Cham Suresh Sunday, 21 June 2020 01:35 PM

    He is a true tamilan no body can't do any thing.

    Ghaffari Farook Sunday, 21 June 2020 01:41 PM

    the government should arrest this man immediately for killing our soldiers. he him self admitted that he is more dangerous than the coronavirus. this is enough evidence.

    Sammy Sunday, 21 June 2020 01:47 PM

    Whatever, Karuna

    Casanova Sunday, 21 June 2020 03:23 PM

    He will be the defence minister under Gota, God Bless Sri Lanka.

    Antany Peter Sunday, 21 June 2020 03:36 PM

    All things are pointing to Indians' policies as big brothers, including creating Tamil armed groups. When they deliberately created Tamil armed groups and pushed Tamils backward as terrorists to destroy Sri Lanka they didn't realise they were pushing South Asia backward. If you analyse the education and knowledge between the Chinese and South Asians politicians it is clear what is coming. This is the reason I do not want to involve in South Asian politics. If I do, I would be jumping into a sinking ship. Please note, I am not implicitly implying that Tamils didn't face discrimination. If I do, I undermine the Britain's ability to divine and conquer others. Britain would not have given independence, if South Asia showed a little hope that it had an ability to work together, because this could have been the greatest threat for the West in the 20th century. Surely, the divisions have been created systematically, but the Tamil politicians should have chosen nonviolence rights groups.

    Darme Sunday, 21 June 2020 03:56 PM

    Keep walking Karuna's not too have noway or turning back...

    Arthur Eng Sunday, 21 June 2020 04:09 PM

    It's ok Karuna sir, don't worry too much about that, you fit right in with the current political party in power

    Frustrated Sunday, 21 June 2020 04:14 PM

    This man who boasts having killed 2000 to3000 soldiers, the Leaders and others who allowed the massacre in the Easter Sunday bomb attacks in 2019 and the Central Bank Bond Scam culprits are protected and living freely without any signs of being brought before the Law. Where is the Justice ?

    Anti-Karuna Sunday, 21 June 2020 05:08 PM

    This is a blatant racial statement aiming at a political advantage. He is no different than Zahran. Can not live a normal life, I hope people can give a good lesson fro him in upcoming elections.

    Ram Sunday, 21 June 2020 07:19 PM

    This is just bragging. One man cannot kill 2000 people in a night.

    Opinion Sunday, 21 June 2020 07:45 PM

    For killing of 3000 civilian by torrorist Usama binladen, the US bombed Afganistan. This terrorist publicly admits guilty to his crime to see any brave leader there to react. oa

    SriLanka Patriot Sunday, 21 June 2020 11:09 PM

    Nothing wrong in his statement. It was war time and enemies are killed in confrontation. He is a great fighter and continues with it. Ranil, Mahinda and Gota used him, how can they punish him now.

    GHarry Sunday, 21 June 2020 11:38 PM

    But at the same time, after joining with His Excellency Mahinda Rajapaksa, you KILLED more LTTE cadres while helping win the war against terrorism whereby let the whole fellow citizens live peacefully. This is I think greater than the previous wrong- doings.

    GHarry Sunday, 21 June 2020 11:43 PM

    We believe, a good lesson expected by Anti-Karuna, will be a landslide victory for His Excellency Gotabaya Rajapaksa

    warren Monday, 22 June 2020 06:44 AM

    Are you nuts? He is contesting on behalf of your so-called "His Excellency Gotabaya Rajapaksa". That is why Mahinda Rajapaksa had extended him an invitation to join the parliament from the National List. Please read the article.

    Roshan samarathunga Monday, 22 June 2020 12:31 AM

    As a leader you must ashamed your self. Yes you are burdened to the Tamil people. Yes you must respect Tamil Muslims, Sinhalese. We are all SRI Lankans.we must respect all ethnic groups. No family politics. We need to have Tamil president Muslim priminster .

    ra Monday, 22 June 2020 01:11 AM

    He also killed many Tamils or behind those killings according to media. is he going to acknowledge?

    Siva Monday, 22 June 2020 01:50 AM

    Karuna sure will not be able to kill any one else. He does not have anyone to protect as he had then. Sick old man talking about the achievements of others.

    Jayasiri Deshabandu Monday, 22 June 2020 05:52 AM

    Mahinda has put a snake in his sarong! Can a person who killed thousands and claims the responsibility be allowed to be free? Where is the law in Sri Lanka?

    Maravan Monday, 22 June 2020 07:24 AM

    This shows how powerful was the LTTE. Everything changed after 9/11.

    Amarpur Kalyani Monday, 22 June 2020 07:43 AM


    while the Sinhala race won without killing a single LTTE or civilian , the LTTE killed soldiers in 1000s. Still the LTTE lost and other party win. We need to educate the whole world.
