” Banning Historical Memory: Questions Of Politics, Quality & Academic Freedom In Jaffna” by By The Jaffna University Science Teachers’ Association (JUSTA)

On 24th April 2015, the Jaffna University Science Teachers’ Association (JUSTA) arranged a discussion of the book Palmyra Fallen: From Rajani to War’s End, written by its member Rajan Hoole, in the Library Auditorium. The Vice Chancellor (VC) with the backing of some senior academics banned the discussion. JUSTA was left with no honourable alternative but to defy this blatant attack on academic freedom.
