    Be careful. There never been a kingdom in Jaffna. There were itinerant Indians who lived in Jaffna among the Sinhalese. When ever these Indians tried to set up an Indian regime the Sinhala kings destroyed the regime and those visitors became a part of the Sinhala community.
    All these changed after the arrival of the British-Indian imperialists.

    The first lot of Indian Colonial Parasites were brought by the British to replace the Dutch administration when the Dutch possessions of Ceylon were taken over by the British Indian imperialists.

    The Sinhalese revolted against these Indian Colonial Parasites and some of them returned to India while some settled in Jaffna and bred like rabbits as they have done from that time. The speaker knows this personally. The Sinhalese in Jaffna were reduced to untouchables; Sakkiliyas.
