About Virakesari Tamil Newspaper

It is one the leading Sri Lankan newspapers and the most widely circulated Tamil publication in the country. It was first established by Subramanian, a noted entrepreneur and a journalist. Being an Indian, he was unable to tolerate the discrimination and violence against Indian labourers in the country. So he started a newspaper to promote justice and equality among all the races. Partly due to his pressure, Sri Lankan government enacted the Citizenship law.

Currently, this newspaper has emerged to be one of the leading national newspapers.
