Historical evidence found that Sri Lanka was a separate country since the era of homo sapiens, they migrated from one country to another or one place to other. There was no evidence that anyone attempted to restrict the migration from one country to another and keep people who were living in the same place. Archaeological evidence found that people who were living in Sri Lanka freely moved to other areas of the world. There is concrete evidence for the movement of homo sapiens and it could assume that the free movement of homo sapiens were allowed at that time. This situation was working all over the world and the right of movement was changed by a variety of basis. It was the nature of the world, and the right to determination of movements was practiced from the beginning and when it was begun should be determined by experts. The division of people to a specific land area (to a country) seems to be contrary to universal law in which believe that the origin of the world gave the right of movement to human and animals.

When it deeply considers no one can disagree with the point that every person born in this world has a right to have a citizenship by descent and the Ceylon Citizenship Act No 18of 1948 has clearly recognized the concept, and many countries in the world concretely accept this principle. When a person gets registered citizenship in another country will not change the right of original citizenship by descent and it seems that Sri Lankan government has acted against the universal human right and this was happened to gain or earn foreign exchange out of universal human right.

The concept of citizenship in Sri Lanka uses to make money or called earning foreign exchange offering dual citizenship for people who had citizenship by descent for a long time.  This practice seems to be inhuman and deprivation of universal rights of people who had citizenship by descent. What is the real law in relation to this matter? Gaining registered citizenship in other country is not a concrete right and if the country wants to deport a registered citizen could be done so. In terms of the Ceylon Citizenship Act No 18 of 1948, the section 5 confirmed the citizenship by descent. Indian law also recognizes that a person born in India will not diffuse Indian citizenship and why Sri Lanka has different aspect for the citizenship by descent
