SL Police detains Tamil trustees of Saiva temple in Vavuniyaa

[TamilNet, Saturday, 02 November 2019, 21:03 GMT]
The Archaeological Department of the unitary state of genocidal Sri Lanka has moved the SL Police to act against the chairman and the secretary of the board of trustees of Kaaddu-vinayakar temple at Maa'likai in Oamanthai, Vavuniyaa after they started to clear the bushes of their village deity. Recently, the resettled Tamils of the village got together in a Shramadana campaign at the war-destroyed ancient temple in the former no-man zone.

The SL Police has detained S. Subramaniyam, the chairperson of the board of trustees and its secretary K. Akilan on Friday.

The biased Sinhala officials of the SL Archaeology Department claim that the temple grounds come under the purview of their department and that those who volunteered to clean the locality had disturbed the structure of the ancient stones.

The stones belong to the ancient temple, and the villagers were only clearing the bushes to protect their temple, Vanni District TNA Parliamentarian Sivasakthy Ananthan told TamilNet on Saturday.

The people engaged in Shramadana work as the SL Ministry of Hindu Cultural Affairs failed to allocate funds to clean the area of the ancient Saiva temple, he added.
