I disagree. We don't put World Trade Center under [[Category:Al Qaeda]] and [[Category:Terrorist acts]], either. — Sebastian 17:12, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

its different because the WTC becomes important only for one reason , because its a victim. However Amirthaligam provided the driving philosophy for the LTTEs struggle so he is very important to the LTTE but not only becuase he was killed by them Dutugemunu 17:35, 29 December 2006 (UTC)
I see what you mean. But the article currently doesn't say so. Please add that. (Ideally, with a source, but it's OK if you don't have a source for it yet; there are currently no sourced statements in that article anyway, and this doesn't sound like the most contentious one. If someone disagrees ‹See Tfd›they can add "{{cn}}")
What about the other two categories you added: [[Category:Terrorist incidents]] and [[Category:Terrorism]]? Can we delete them? — Sebastian 18:22, 29 December 2006 (UTC)
No reply, so I'm deleting them. — Sebastian 20:23, 29 December 2006 (UTC)
