We are shocked and perturbed to read a News item appearing in the front page of a Tamil Newspaper on Friday under the heading “Sri Lanka is the Country of Sinhala Buddhists. There is no place for those who do not accept this”‘.

All Ceylon Hindu Congress wish to point out that such an outrageous statement by “Bodu Bala Sena” is an act which may create further social and religious hatred among the citizens of this land. We are also constrained to observe that this statement is not only in violation of the Constitution but also in breach of the laws of this country. Therefore immediate steps should be taken to put an end to this sort of propaganda.

Having experienced, during the last few decades, the unfortunate consequences and repercussions of ”Sinhala Only” cry, needless to point out that “Buddhism Only” cry will only further deteriorate the situation in this country and affect the nation badly. Therefore we appeal to His Excellency the President, the Prime Minister, the Leader of the Opposition and all other Parliamentarians to forthwith put a full stop to this dangerous trend of propaganda.

On behalf of the Hindus and all other citizens who value peace and harmony in this country, we urge all Tamil Ministers and other Tamil Members of Parliament also to make note of this and take all necessary steps in that direction.

KANDIAH NEELAKANDAN – PRESIDENT
MUTU KATHIRAGAMANATHAN – GENERAL SECRETARY
