Protetst for the issuance of some LTTE stamps in Norway
The issuance of some stamps by Norwegian postal department that depicts pictures of late LTTE (Liberation Tigers of Tamil Elam) leader, Velupillai Prabhakaran and some symbols used by LTTE is unacceptable to all peace loving people in the world. Issuing a stamp of a terrorist leader who is responsible for assassination of many political leaders in south asia including late prime minister Rajiv Ghandhi and late president of Sri Lanka Ranasinghe Premadasa as well as massive bloodsheds by killing innocent civilians, is an insultation to people who are on stamps like Mahathma Ghandhi in India and King Harald in Norway.
Though he is not existing anymore there are so many people who are still carrying the pain and suffering due to his terror acts. Victims of the terrorism will never forget the pain. I lost my own brother from the Dehiwala office train blast and I am still crying for him. How many Norwegian families are crying for their children after the assassination incident on 22nd July 2011.
Will it qualify a person to be on a stamp after killing pregnant women, small children, buddhist monks etc.? Most of all, by introducing the suicide bombing technique to warfare, Prabhakaran iniciated an inhumane and unethical way of conducting terrorism.
Norway is a peace loving country and recently the people have experienced the pain of terrorism. I dought that Norwegian people would ever be happy if another country issued a stamp of Anders Behring Breivik. Norwegian postal service must understand the mistake they did by issuing those stamps of LTTE.
I encourage you all to sign this petition to show your displeasure and pain to the Norwegian postal service.
