Omitting apartheid-era SA Defence Force (SADF) soldiers from the Wall of Names at Freedom Park would be "one-sided," AfriForum chief executive Kallie Kriel said on Thursday.
Kriel was speaking at a workshop on whether to include the names of SADF members at the memorial, along with freedom fighters.
"If the Freedom Park continues the current trend of portraying history from the ANC's prospective only, then it should not hold the monument up to be an 'inclusive monument' for all South Africans," Kriel said.
However, he said Freedom Park can be transformed into a symbol of mutual recognition and respect if it included foreign soldiers who came to South Africa to fight communism.
He said if the names of the dead of the two World Wars were included, then South African soldiers who died in the Korean War should be honoured as well.
