JVP mourns the death: Saluting a true Patriot

[b]JVP mourns the death: Saluting a true Patriot[/b]

[b]Colombo, 15 August, ([/b] “Farewell friend, in death your ideas will become still stronger!” These are the words of Janatha Vimukthi Perumuna, the Marxist political party which always believed in the slain leader, Sri Lanka’s Foreign Minister Laksman Kadirgamar and hailed him as a true patriot of Sri Lanka.

In a statement issued by the Sri Lanka Marxist party – JVP declared its string believe and resolve “not to hand this country to one of the worst criminals in the world grows stronger. Others may scrape and bow before his crimes, but not us.”

The statement adds: Friend and patriot, you died as you lived. You died for our common ideals.Your death however will not be in vain. As we mourn your death, we of theJVP double our resoluteness in fighting for the honest values you stood for.

The full text of the statement issued by the Political Bureau of Janatha Vimukthi Perumuna is given below :

A true son of Sri Lanka has fallen. The LTTE bullet aimed at Lakshman Kadirgamar was a bullet aimed at all those who reject racism and believe in democracy and human rights. It is very temporary victory for a bloodthirsty racist fascist hiding in the Vanni who has modeled himself after Hitler. This horrific crime instead of cowing us, strengthens the will of the people to resist dictatorship, and fight for true equality, multi-culturalism and multi-ethnicity.
