Pales­tine Sol­i­dar­ity ac­tivists re­mem­bered

Sunday Times (Sri Lanka) - - EVENTS -

The Pales­tine em­bassy held a pub­lic event on Novem­ber 2 at the Lak­sh­man Kadirga­mar In­sti­tute to mark the cen­te­nary of the 1917 Bal­four Dec­la­ra­tion which led to the divi­sion of the historic Pales­tine in 1947 and the cre­ation of Is­rael. One of the high- lights of the event was the award­ing of me­men­toes to the next of kin of the late Dr. T. Jayas­inghe, the late A. H. M. Azwer and the late Hameed Ab­dul Ka­reem -- who were in the fore­front of the cam­paigns to pro­mote the Pales­tini­ans’ cause for free­dom and jus­tice.
