LTTE Black Tigers commemorated in Jaffna university

july 05The LTTE Black Tigers were commemorated in the Jaffna university today, the Jaffna media reported.

Commemorating the LTTE is banned in Sri Lanka since the LTTE is listed as a terrorist group.

However Jaffna university students had commemorated the LTTE Black Tigers by lighting candles.

The first Black Tiger was Vallipuram Vasanthan, who drove a small truck laden with explosives into a Sri Lanka Army (SLA) camp in Nelliady, Jaffna peninsula, on 5 July 1987, killing himself and between 39–100 Sri Lankan soldiers.

Black Tigers were specially selected and trained LTTE cadres whose missions included mounting suicide attacks against military and civilian targets.

Civilian targets included places of worship, ports, airports and assassinations of high-profile Indian and Sri Lankan dignitaries, among them Sri Lankan President Ranasinghe Premadasa.

From their formation in 1987 until the defeat of the LTTE in 2009, more than 330 Black Tigers made suicide attacks on land and sea, mostly in Sri Lanka. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. Tamil diaspora has launched a massive campaign to stop Rajapaksa coming back, and it is because this type of activities are not possible when he was in power. Only Ranil-Chandrika dominated government is allowing LLTE to raise head again.

    • Where did you get this rubbish idea? Tamil diaspora wants MR backso that they will get western support to fight for Elam. I live in UK and diaspora activity has died down dramatically since MS and they no longer get support from ordinary Tamils and west. If MR comes back, we will give ammunition to them and they will get Elam in no time. Only morons and corrupt will support MR. Just remember what damage MR done to our economy and civil society.

      • That’s the problem. You live in UK and try to make judgement on issues in Sri Lanka. Come and have look what Rajapaksa’s has done for this Country. With the development in Colombo alone, we can proudly say we are Sri Lankan.

  2. JUST DO WHAT THE BLACK TIGERS DID.
    ELIMINATE THESE SCUMBAG TERRORIST SYMPATHISERS FROM THIS PLANET AND FROM SRI LANKAN SOIL.
    DONT NEED THESE BASTARDS IN THE NORTHERN PROVINCE OR FOR THAT MATTER ON OUR PLANET.

  3. This indicates That we need Rajapakshas Strength to elliminate the Tiger treat. Tiger sympathiser do not understand the language democracy and cohesion. They only know how to complain and how to be laughing stock in the International arena.

  4. We must understand that freedom of expression is not supporting tigers. It will result in a peaceful srilanka in which all communities can express their feelings. Right to protest and grief are basic Human rights in democratic society

  5. Where the hell the new national security plan which yahapala head Sirisena was boosting about ? He sai he is hourly informed about the security situation in the north. So has Sira aprooved this black tiger event under his “YAMA PALANAYA ?????

  6. This is the reason why we can’t trust the UNP. Would Obama let Bin Laden groups to celebrate terrorism in USA. Where is your brain Ranil, Karu, Mangala ????

  7. This is not a good and positive signal. In South, what ever their political complexity they must draw their serious concern for the national security.

  8. LTTE are raising its head for sure.All those who are against Rajapaksafamily family be aware.This is what western based Diaspora Tamils are slowly but surly showing their muscle misguiding the young.
