About Us

Puthiya Kural Newspaper started in April 2018 as a monthly Issue and ran as the voice of Tamil speaking people for more than a year after starting its first edition. Due to the need to act as a non-commercial voice for Tamil-speaking Sri Lankan minority communities, it was transformed into a bi-monthly newspaper and continued to function as the voice of the people with the help of minority people's organizations and political leaders. Gotabaya Rajapaksa, who ascended to power at that time, was under various threats from the intelligence department of the government because the groups responsible for the violence against the Muslim Tamil people that took place between 2018 and 2019 were brought out through the media.

Puthiya Kural Newspaper continued to act as a Tamil media against anti-Muslim riots, Tamil people's land issues, arrests of Tamil leaders, arrests of innocent minorities and planned racist activities.

The office of the new voice was also attacked because it continued to expose the oppression of the Rajapaksa family. Later, due to the economic crisis in the country, although the newspaper did not come out, the new voice was still trying to solve the problems of the people by seeking the help of various organizations for the next steps.

With the help of human rights activists and journalists, political leaders, and human rights activists who fled the country due to threats, Puthiya Kural Newspaper has resumed publication in Sri Lanka from August 2023. But it was again disabled due to major anti-government news published in 04 consecutive Issues. Puthiya Kural Newspaper founder Dr. AMM. Fahath was threatened and called for intensive investigation due to the news of White Van abduction, kidnapping of journalists, background of violence against Tamil people, racist threats. This necessitated leaving the country.

It has been operating as a voice of the voiceless people in Sri Lanka since October 29, 2023 as a monthly print edition from Canada and a daily news online edition.
