Sri Lanka became a British Colony in 1815 and gained its independence in 1948 and in 1983 we embarked upon the destruction, that was the ethnic civil war. After the war ended in 2010 a new type of destruction began with the unapologetic and undeterred advent of a highly racist movement with strong fascist undertones.

Posted Date: 21/09/2017 (Thursday)
It is old news that those who regard themselves as Sinhala nationalists always preferred the district to the province as the primary unit of the devolution of power.
