Newly constructed Mullivaikkal memorial unveiled at Jaffna University

The demolished Mullivaikkal memorial at the University of Jaffna was re-erected at the same place and reopened today.

The Mullivaikkal monument erected at the University of Jaffna was demolished by the university administration on the night of January 8.

Following this, students, public and political leaders condemned the university and engaged in protests and fasting.

A foundation stone was laid by the Vice Chancellor on January 11, 2021 and the university administration proposed to re-erect the monument at the same site following intense pressure from students.
