Malwatte, Asgiriya, were silent when Gnanasara was on a rampage, two years ago Unfortunately, our Buddhist clergy seems to be still living in the past Gnanasara managed to dominate the media through a series of protest marches, manhandling and uttering utter filth as his basic lingo In one of the greatest contributions to parliamentary history, M. A. Sumanthiran’s address on the debate on the 18th Amendment deserves a special place. When politics become entrenched in ethnic and religious shades, governance also becomes entrapped in the same gory and muddy trenches

News: India and Sri Lanka should take up repatriation of Tamil refugees at the earliest
Posted Date: 14/11/2017 (Tuesday)
In recent months, the focus of the media has been on the Rohingya refugees in India. But the plight of Sri Lankan refugees, who have been here for nearly 35 years, appears to have gone out of the public consciousness. The pathetic condition of shelters, restrictions on movement, and limited scope of livelihood opportunities affect the community of one lakh-odd Sri Lankan refugees, who have been living in Tamil Nadu ever since the anti-Tamil pogrom in Sri Lanka in July 1983. Besides, statelessness is a major problem for a section of refugees whose roots are from central parts of Sri Lanka, generally called hill country.
