Hindu Temples Replaced With Buddhist Viharas in Sri Lanka

SRI LANKA, August 17, 2020: “Sri Lanka government is systematically destructing Hindu temples in the Eastern Province and constructing Buddhist Viharas in their places and one cannot remain passive while the Sinhala Buddhist chauvinists continue to destroy Hindu temples and appropriate the traditional Tamil lands for the occupying Sri Lanka Army,” said S. Yogeswaran, Tamil National Alliance parliamentarian for Batticaloa district.

“Sri Lanka government has not taken any steps to renovate the hundreds of Hindu temples in the Tamil homeland in the East and North destroyed during the war but is engaged in colonizing the Tamils’ lands with Sinhala people and in building Buddhist Viharas,” he added.

Yogeswaran extended an appeal to temple authorities, Hindu organizations and associations to raise their voice.
