The Jaffna and Mullaitivu Magistrate's Courts issued interim injunctions yesterday (25) preventing the Mahaveer Commemoration celebrations in Jaffna and Mullaitivu. However, the Tamil party representatives held a special discussion in Jaffna yesterday (25), where they stated since the Courts had banned the Mahaviru celebrations, they have extended the request to the people in the Northern Province.
