The Sinhala-Buddhist organization, Ravana Balaya, said yesterday, if Tamil National Alliance (TNA) MP, S. Sridharan, is demanding that the Sinhala people should leave Jaffna, then the TNA MP should not be allowed to visit Colombo to attend Parliament.
“It is a historical fact that the Sinhala people had been resident in Jaffna and therefore Sridharan making Jaffna his birth place and trying to expel the Sinhalese from Jaffna is most reprehensible,” Ven. Iththekande Saddhatissa Thera, Secretary of the Ravana Balaya, said.The Thera made these comments, when he recently met the Sinhalese families residing in Nawakkuli, Jaffna, in response to an announcement made by Sridharan.
The Thera also said his organization will not permit Sridharan to come to Colombo after making such shameless enunciations, and his organization will take action against anyone who seeks to destroy the ethnic harmony in the country.
“If Wigneswaran respects peace and harmony, he should take action against such individuals, who make statements kindling communal animosity,” he added. (Ceylon Today)
