|LTTE sabotages memorial meeting|
|Wednesday, 28 May 2008|
(May 28, London, Sri Lanka Guardian):
A memorial meeting organised by Mrs Rajes Balasubramaniam at the London Sivan Kovil Hall in Lewisham for Late Maheswari Velautham has been sabotaged by the LTTE activists. The Shiva temple managed by the LTTE agreed to hire their hall for the event and when publicity was reaching all corners of London, the Board of Trustees wholly consisting of LTTE activists, cancelled the booking.
The meeting was scheduled to be held on 1 (Sunday) June 2008. The sources close to the Trustees of the temple accused Mrs Balasubramaniam of taking an anti-LTTE stand and were critical that she had put up statements praising the dead politician.
When Rajes Balasubramaniam was asked about the decision of the Trustees she said “I am very disappointed and I cannot believe those oppose to violence cannot even mourn the dead. As a woman, I always campaigned for betterment of treatment of women in the society but what happened here in London is unacceptable and cannot be allowed to continue.”
