The exiled journalist Manjula Wediwardene had praised Thamzhini as the Tamil Voice of the oppressed Sinhala Women.
She considered all of us to be siblings. She never had hatred towards Sinhala people. She never compromised on the rights of the women. Arresting her in itself is a wrong act. The tribulations she underwent in the detention had claimed her life so soon.
Thamizhini had a wide view of the oppressed Sinhala Women in the South. We feel her death as of our own sister. She could be identified as the Tamil voice of the conscience of the Sinhala women, he had said in his Condolence Message.
