President as usual has released a message on Hindu Thai Pongal.
Some excerpts from president’s message:
The Thai Pongal festival which brings new life to the Hindu community is a unique festival for them. The Thai Pongal festival which is marked by peace and harmony has become a very important
The war has been permanently brought to an end and the environment to live in peace and harmony, not only in the North and East but also in the entire country has been created.
President Mahinda Rajapaksa who made permanent peace possible in the country, has taken a number of progressive steps to develop the North and East. This has made the lives of the people living in those areas more comfortable.
While appreciating President’s peace message we want to alert him the growing fascism and racism in Sri Lanka. This is has started causing insecure feeling especially among the minorities.
We request President Mahinda Rajapaksa to take necessary action against fascist groups such as BODU BALA SENA in order to maintain peace and to prosper from peace in our paradise island!
