Mullaivaikal Commemoration – Mourning LTTE dead under pretense of ‘civilian dead’

Monday, May 18th, 2020

Tamil nationalism, LTTE separatism and “West’s Eelam – who has now hijacked the pillow?

Saturday, May 16th, 2020

Tamil nationalism bordering separatism was birthed by Tamil political leaders and not LTTE.
