One Response to “POST-CONFLICT EFFORTS BY GOSL AND ARMED FORCES-Facts and Figures”

  1. Lorenzo Says:

    Lack of FAIR PLAY is part of the problem!!

    Govt. has NOT been FAIR for the Sinhalese and Muslims.

    25,000 Sinhalese and 100,000 Muslims were chased away from Jaffna by Tamils but NO ACTION taken to settle them!!

    “40 LEADING INVESTORS IN SRI LANKA (ETHNCITITY)

    SINHALESE = 11
    TAMILS = 23
    MOOR = 4
    OTHER = 2”

    Money laundering by the LTTE Diaspora in SL. Govt. MUST monitor their activities.

    “THE GOSL HAS ALSO RENOVATED AND REHABILITATED RELIGIOIUS PLACES IN THE NORTH

    TAMIL KOVILS = 11 (COST OF Rs.35million)
    CATHOLIC CHURCHES = 3 (COST OF RS. 30.4million)
    MOSQUES = 27 (cost of Rs.833million)
    BUDDHIST TEMPLES = 2 (Nagadeepa and Dambakolapatuna)”

    27 mosques in the north for a 1% Muslim population! This is a joke and DISPROPORTIONATE. Only 2 Buddhist temples. There are many more needing attention.

    At least now the govt. should realize giving benefit after benefit to Tamils DOES NOT solve the problem. It WORSENS it.
