Tamils will dash 1,008 coconuts to bless Clinton

 

Colombo: A group of Sri Lankan Tamils in Jaffna will break over 1,000 coconuts and light as many candles to bless Hillary Clinton, saying the Democratic presidential candidate’s win is important for the future of the minority community.

“We will dash 1,008 coconuts on November 8 to bless her, ahead of the US election. We expect her to win the election,” M.K. Shivajilingam, a Tamil National Alliance (TNA) member of the Tamil dominated Northern Province said.

The event will take place in Jaffna’s historic Kandsamy Kovil in Nallur.
