(v) to ban, declare illegal. Origin: L pro-, before + scribere, to write => 'to write before the world' => 'to publicly display just like Sula put his list of 'the internal enemies of the state' at all public places' => 'to declare someone an outlaw.' When, in early 1998, the LTTE bombed the Temple of the Tooth Relic in Kandy, the Sri Lankan government proscribed the militant organization. The temple was the holiest Buddhist site of the island nation. The LTTE's proscription in India had been already effected in May 1992 for its involvement in the assassination of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi on May 21, 1991.
