The seventh death anniversary of the civilians who died during the war was held at Wellamulli Waikkal in Mullaitivu today with the participation of Northern Provincial Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran.

Addressing the ceremony, the Chief Minister said those in the South of the country had interpreted the commemoration ceremony as a tribute to the terrorists who were killed during the war.

“Not everyone who died during the war was a terrorist. We are here to commemorate the civilians. It is necessary to seek out what happened to these people since a lot of civilians lost their lives due to the war,” he said.

A five-minute silence was observed in memory of the victims as well as religious observances. Parliamentarians and provincial councilors of the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) were present at the ceremony held close to the civilian memorial at Wellamulli Waikkal this morning. (Romesh Madushanka)

    Red and yellow flags do not represent civilians my friend. via DM Android App

    Either everyone wasn't innocent as well and you also really need to seek what happened to those innocent people by hundreds buses and trains bombing, Anuradhapura massacre, Central Bank bombing, Aranthalawa massacre, Temple of the Tooth attack, Kebithigollewa bus attack and many many more!

    There should be ONE ceremony somewhere in the country to commemorate ALL died (Tamil, SInhala, Muslim, etc...) during the war. Only it would bring reconciliations.

    Do not even compare LTTE terrorists to civilians and armed forces personnel who gave their lives for us to these murderers. They deserved death.

    Bimal Wednesday, 18 May 2016 05:27 PM

    Red and yellow are the colors of the LTTE flag

    another way of hoodwink

    Civilians have died for 33 years since the LTTE started the war. This commemoration is not for those civilians. This is clearly for Prabhakaran.

    It should be white flags not red and yellow. Its a hoodwink with a different idea at the back of the mind.

    Rain Thursday, 19 May 2016 03:56 AM

    When Tamils cry, it is hoodwink, while people from South cry, it is sympathy. Why this sudden Rain fall ....?

    Even Prabakaran was a civilian like every others killed in the war against terrorism in Sri Lanka. the only non civilians were the legitimate members of our great armed services. via DM iOS App
