with one comment

The expulsion of the Muslims from the Northern province was an act of ethnic cleansing carried out by the LTTE  organization in October 1990.  the LTTE forcibly expelled more than 1000,00 strong Muslim population from the Northern Province. The first expulsion was in Chavakacheri, of 1,500 people. After this, Muslims in Kilinochchi and Mannar were forced many to leave their homeland. The turn of Jaffna came on October 30, 1990; when LTTE trucks drove through the streets ordering Muslim families to assemble at Osmania College. There, they were told to exit the city within two hours. The entire muslim population was expelled from Jaffna. According to a 1981 census (the last official count), the total Muslim population in Jaffna was 14,844. They could take with them only the clothes they were wearing and no more than 50 rupees in cash. Their houses were subsequently looted by the LTTE , now they more than 200,000 in numbers mainly in puttlam refuge camps the muslim refuges aged 20 this year , this month but no notable attention paid by local or international societies
