SB makes case for Sinhala majority population

Parliamentarian S.B. Dissanayake yesterday stressed the importance of maintaining its Sinhala majority status.

He was speaking at a press conference in Colombo. Dissanayake said the government and political authorities should take this issue into account and make a decision immediately.

In Sri Lanka, 75 per cent of the population is Sinhalese, 11.2 per cent is Sri Lankan Tamils, 9.3 per cent is Sri Lankan Muslims and 4.1 per cent is Indian Tamils.

Dissanayake pointed out that not taking immediate steps to control the births will change the percentages dangerously by 2050 and the Sinhalese will become a minority in the country.

As a supportive measure, Muslim people entering the country as refugees should also be controlled, he said.
