Peel District School Board gets caught erasing Tamil Genocide

June 18, 2020

Peel District School Board (PDSB) angered the Tamil community in Toronto, after it was caught erasing the words “Tamil Genocide” from a tweet it published June 4, 2020.

According to Kathir, a commenter on Twitter, this attempt at erasing history happened after a “meeting with the Sinhalese community”.

Between 4,000 and 5,000 Tamil people were killed in the genocide, before the 2002 ceasefire. This is an important piece of history, and leaving it out undeniably erases a vital piece of our past. It is also hurtful to the Tamal community, that wishes their history not be erased.

As noted, PDSB apologized, and has since corrected its mistake.

How do you feel about PDSB’s failed attempt to rewrite history? Let me know below!

    There was no Tamil Genocide no international body has recognized it as such. All this is being carrying out by a lobby that wants to make other students uncomfortable at Ontario school boards.

    No evidence of genocide happened in SriLanka. All those are fabricted faults. Even UN has not said yet. This is tge propaganda of LTTE terror supporters. They are trying to live on this issue and make money. Show the figures how many Tamils live in South of the contry. They most of them fo business in Colombo. How is thst?
