Pirapaharan, Chapter 23
Who Gave the Order?

 by T. Sabaratnam


23. Who Gave the Order?

Who set the fire?

Three questions arise about the burning of the Jaffna Public Library.

Who burnt it?

How was it burnt?

Who gave the order?

Pirapaharan watched with defiant, angry eyes the leaping flames that consumed the Jaffna Public Library, the cultural treasure of the Jaffna people.
