Tamils - a Trans State Nation..

"To us all towns are one, all men our kin.
Life's good comes not from others' gift, nor ill
Man's pains and pains' relief are from within.
Thus have we seen in visions of the wise !."
Tamil Poem in Purananuru, circa 500 B.C

The Charge is Ethnic Cleansing

Name of Country changed from Ceylon to Sinhala Sri Lanka
& Buddhism given foremost place in Constitution - 1972

[see also Sri Lanka Constitution 1972 and Sinhala Buddhist Ethno Nationalism - Masquerading as Sri Lankan 'Civic Nationalism']

The 1972 Sri Lanka Constitution which was enacted 'on the tenth day of the waxing moon, in the month of Vesak in the year two thousand five hundred and fifteen of the Buddhist era', changed the name of the country from Ceylon to the Sinhala, Sri Lanka, repealed the protection afforded to minorities by the 1946 constitution, and proclaimed that the 'Republic of Sri Lanka shall give to Buddhism the foremost place' and that 'it shall be the duty of the State to protect and foster Buddhism'.
