The BBS said yesterday the protest will look to draw attention to the need to protect the “minority Sinhalese” community in the North.

  1. Tamils have no problem when Catholic/Christian churches spring up among Hindus. Recently part of the Temple land of historic Thiruketheeswaram Temple was grabbed by Mannar bishop Rayappu by planting a Mary statue. Hindus have no reason to oppose Buddha. The Catholic Church is a partner of LTTE terrorists and now grab temple lands. CM Wigneswaran or other Hindu leaders in any Tamil party did not oppose the crime against Hindus in Mannaar.

  2. BBS got it wrong !! What he said is government sponsored !! Assisted !! Majority’s settlements building temples there !! In peoples land !! Spending public funds !! Nobody opposed to any one buying or renting property’s there !!

    • When Rishad Bada Udin build houses for Muslims only colonies at the government expense, you have no problem. When Mannar Bishop grab Hindu temple lands, you have no problem. How?
