"I was able to attend my mother's funeral, while I was staying in Jaffna. But there are many who could not attend to their loved one's funerals due to the current situation. People are living in fear and despair. People want peace, not war. We have suffered for more than two decades, as a result we lost many lives. Several left the country.We do not want to face the same situation. The ceasefire agreement should be implemented properly, violence and killings should stop immediately. Peace should prevail" says Kangalingam Thayanathan (43) of Canada
