Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa today called on the people to remember the sacrifice made by the soldiers during the war.

Rajapaksa, who attended an event at the Viharamaha devi park in Colombo this evening to commemorate the war heroes, said in a statement that while the month of May has always been remembered for Vesak, since 2009 it has been remembered in Sri Lanka for the end of the war.

“May 18 is remembered as the National freedom day,” the former President said.

Rajapakasa, who was President when the LTTE was defeated and the war ended, said that the sacrifices of the soldiers during the war can never be forgotten.

Meanwhile commemorative events were held in several parts of the North today to remember the thousands of civilians killed during the final stages of the war. (Colombo Gazette)

  2. Every April 26th, Australia and New Zealand celebrate ANZAC Day to commemorate War Heroes. Not only in Australia and New Zealand they even go to Gallipoli in Turkey on this day to celebrate. There is nothing wrong to have an event to remember war heroes who sacrificed their life for peace of others.
