Prabhakaran’s Bunker Destroyed In Wanni

LTTE Leader Vellupillai Prabhakaran‘s bunker in Puthukuduirrippu in Mullaitivu has been destroyed, Tamil media reports while top military sources are confirming the demolition unofficially.

For the past week official permission has not been granted for tourists to visit the Tiger Leader’s bunker the Jaffna based Uthayan newspaper reports.

Residents claimed they heard a loud explosion around 6:40 p.m. last night following which the bunker was demolished.

Security forces personnel had asked residents in surrounding areas to take cover at schools and temples nearby, because they had discovered explosives inside the bunker.

Police from the area had then marshalled residents into safe locations prior to the explosion.

The army has officially denied knowledge of the demolition, but high ranking army sources confirmed the bunker had been destroyed.

Prabhakaran’s bunker has been a popular tourist destination for visitors to the former conflict zones in the South and was maintained as a showcase of the Tiger Leader’s opulent lifestyle after the war ended in 2009. It was a highly popular attraction on the so-called Tiger trail on the war-tourism circuit in the North.

Tamil politicians in the area said they believed the demolition was aimed at preventing the bunker from becoming a shrine to the slain LTTE leader since the area was now controlled by a Tamil provincial government. The demolition of the bunker at this stage was a tacit acknowledgment by the military establishment that the bunker had been preserved for the benefit of triumphalist Southern tourists rather than aimed at keeping alive the history of the Sri Lankan civil war.

    The Army and the Government admit by this move Eelam is coming,
    if not now – in the early future. The Rajapakses still have time to
    prevent this happening if they play their cards intelligently in
    consultation with the international community.

            Did you also noted that SL forces had to make him naked because Podian Preba shitted himself badly and smelled unbearably due to the shit him all over.

            By the way – It is reported that Podian Preba is noe always in the shit pool in the hell for the merits collected for 30 odd years.

      Germany still preserve Hitler’s Concentration camps and Gas chambers for the world to see. They are tourist attractions and foreign exchange earners.

      Recently Germany allocated 90 Million Dollars to upgrade those Nazi war memorials.

      What is happening in Sri Lanka……Where’s KP, Karuna and Pilliyan’s Bunkers. Time to open them.

    Obviously the Army destroyed it; after all they left it intact all these years and only now they discovered there were explosives there, just a load of crock.

    Why does the SL gov. come up with such blatant lies, so blatat that it is clear they are lying, as also was the case with that Western chap who was accused of insulting Buddhism when it was discovered he had a tattoo of Buddha taking up his back.

    Wonder what the people felt when they visited the place, did they think, here was the dreamer, who died with his dream ? Here was the man, whom we Southerners created with our policies ? Do we forget our actions and only remember what his team did ? Selective Memory loss.

    Never mind, an era ended in 2009, now let’s build the peace, democratically.

    I mourn the best and the brightest lost in our Motherland in the various uprisings since independence. We owe it to them to build a better SL.

    what is the point in destroying the bunker and not the man.Prabha had at least 3 body doubles and wasn’t keeping them for fun.

    BTW has the death certificate been given to india as requested by them in order to finalise the rajiv case?Probably they will be given the bunker certificate instead to keep them happy and mollified.

    I hated Prabaharan and LTTE. But I can be sure that Prabaharan will be hailed as a Hero because he died in the battle field. Although he was a terrorist he died in the battle field. Even the wounds on his head show that even when some one shot him and hammered him on the head he did not turn his head. Unlike Got-a-baya, who ran off to US when he was sent to the battle front and now claims that he won the war sitting behind a desk. Similarly the President too never went to the battle ground, he was always surrounded by security. The history books will definitely call Prabaharan a Hero and a Terrorist.

      Lankan I am amazed at the intellect of all who have commented. Did anyone wonder why VP left such fortification and exposed himself on a Beach Front miles away after he sold his look alike in a span cloth to take the heat off his back, which even MR govt drummed for the consumption of the South and the whole world?

      VP had been so benevolent allowing MR to market this bunker of his, to the Fools of the South as a tourist spot, without even leaving a Booby Trap to blow up. Afterall VP had so many suicide cadres he could have left one to blow up when the Army came? How could VP do that when he was promised a way out after surrender by MR, in return for the favour VP did to MR by getting him elected as the President, that was arranged by the Americans and the Indians?

      Where is David Blacker? I believe he is still counting the dead of the Forces for the thirty months from Jan 2007 to Mey 2009, like Frances Harrison still counting the dead LTTE. The Only difference is Frances’s will exceed thousands, that were butchered when they tried to surrender, but David Blacker’s list will not exceed even fifty on the govt side as there was no real war, but a Propaganda War only, where the Wanni including the LTTE stronghold Kilinochchi was conceded to the Forces without a battle. If David fails, a list is currently being compiled of the dead Forces for the thirty months and will be released in time. David where are you?

          As from the inside story of S L Army. Killer pirapaharan did not ran away,
          He was Cheated by KP, Karuna, Pilayan, Rajive Gandhi, Prmadasa,
          M R, and other RAJAFOXES.

          We believe, ALL who Fought and died in Both sides are HEROS of SRI LANKA,
          as this Civil war was initiated and Funded mainly By INDIAN BUEROCRACY TO Slow our Country’s development.
          He [ KILLER Pirapaharan] was not admired by Tamils wholesale.
          He was killed by the army giving false promises,
          Promises from RAJA-FOXES and lured to Mullaithieve from Wellai mulliwaikal.

          It deserved to him, as he put Tamil people of sri lanka in jeopardy and cheated them.

        Shut up you blady Sinhalis [Edited out] . VP is a great soldier unlike The blady Rajafoxes, He’s a well deserved hero who took arms and rebelled against the atrocities of the Sinhala government. If not for VP the Tamils plight for freedom would have never been heard. Same thing thats happening to the Rohingaya Muslims in Myanmar will been happening to the Tamils in Srilanka today. Whether you lot say it or not VP will be hailed as a hero that’s for sure.

        Abhaya,even if he supposedly begged as you claim,how do you know it was not a body double?Why was a death certificate not done?

        These are the questions that you have to ask because there are strong rumours that VP is living in an undisclosed country.

        gamini,you are mad if you think VP would have trusted MR and the US and india.VP won’t even trust his own shadow.

            hadagamba,i agree with you that prabhaharan was a coward because i have never heard of him taking part in a battle and always 24/7 in a bunker with that other coward pottu next to him.Pottu’s body has not been found.These two always go together.My point is that there are persistent rumours even after 4 years that prabha is alive.Even just after his supposed death there was in srilanka talk among tamils that he was alive.I’am wondering why this thing is not dying down and so persistent and why the government cannot give a legal registered death certificate to India as requested by them and put down these rumours once and for all.If karuna identified the body then it should be easy to do that isn’t it?

          lmao . all you guys dont know the truth . body doubles . who do you think this turd was . Hitler . no he was just the leader of th e bata slippers gang . with a takaran air force .

          This is not a great hero but a total coward and fool who was propped up by the indians when the Sri Lankan army was a laughable force . He was the rank stupid turd who killed the arm that fed him in blowing up Rajiv . Tamils need better role models than cowardly fools . but they are still living with the MGR complex , that is why they lose every battle and war . :)

    Prabhaakaran destroyed everything in the area that reminded him of Sinhaese due to brutality displayed towards Tamils in 1976..1983 …..the same brutality is displayed by the democratic Demons who conducted a Humanitarian Operation.. Prabhaakaran re born…his spirit has entered the …ing.

      Pabakaran never understood and thought of how THE Sinhala minority SURVIVED for millennia under the majority Tamils in south India.

      BUILDING A TOILET, FOR TOURISTS TO AREA, ON THAT PLACE IS A GOOD IDEA

      THAT WILL BE A SYMBOL FOR LTTE – TAMILS OVERSEAS TO REMIND HOW THEIR MONEY WAS WASTED AND BECAME A TOILET.

        “Pabakaran never understood and thought of how THE Sinhala minority SURVIVED for millennia under the majority Tamils in south India.’

        You stupid,it was the pandyas who time and again fought the cholas and saved the sinhalese arse.Did you not know that the sinhala DNA is more than 50% tamil because the pandyas supplied all the women for them.The next time there won’t be the pandya’s coming to save the sinhala arse,because the sinhalese after independence thought that they are big enough to take care of themselves and committed atrocities on the tamil people.If you look at the 2500 year history there are no atrocities by the sinhalese on the tamil people though there would have been wars between monarchs and siblings in power struggles.

        The sinhalese fought ferociously to retain their identity and i don’t for one moment take any credit for that from them,but it was the help and backing from their allies the pandyas who felt they were their kith kin due to marriages that made the difference between annihilation and survival.

        Even the word bandara is pandara,a pandya name.Pandara vannian is known as bandara vanni by the people in anuradhapura who respect him like a god.Though the language was tamil in the vanni the people could very well have been sinhalese and pandara vannian could very well have been a sinhalese who spok tamil.Nayakkar is a another tamil title hence pandara nayakkar becomes bandarnayake. So you got to understand our history properly and realise how everything is intertwined.

    shankar- India did not recieve a copy of the registered death cerificate of Prabakaran becuase they did not have a legal certificate.
    The government typed a death certificate and sent it on as they were caught off guard by geeting a request from India to close the case against Prabakaran.

    No single army personal had ever seen Prabakaran face to face.Who identified the body? No one army personal standing on the homeland.
    Untill Sarath Fonseka the army commander took Karuna in his helicopter to identify the body.Karuna had one look and said NO.This news item appeared soon after.
    As you mentioned Prabakaran had 3 like him.
    Why do you think the GOSL has its eyes on Karuna.Because karuna said NO? SF made him say yes.
    Karuna signed as the only witness much against his will.!!

    Karuna likes being surrounded by security because he is scared that Prabakaran is a free.Man must be still seing him in his dreams.

    The bunker blown up?.Probably they don’t want the PC to show case the bunker and make it a sacred place.
    Looks like the army is retreating?

    “A military spokesman told the BBC that tourism was only “a temporary phenomenon” at the bunker.

    Now that the area had been de-mined he said that there was no reason “to keep the ghosts of terrorism”….SO WJAT ABOUT THE KILLINOCH ARMY H.Q. BUILT BY PRABAHARAN.

    However, the authorities may have been uneasy at the propaganda effect of the bunker, our correspondent says.
