Singing national anthem only in Sinhala, sufficient - Jaffna Tamil Buddhist Association President

There is no need to sing the national anthem in Tamil as singing it in Sinhala is sufficient, Jaffna Tamil Buddhist Association President Ravi Kumar said.

Speaking to the Daily News, he said singing the national anthem in the Sinhala language does not affect peace and harmony among different communities in the country.

“The national anthem in India is sung in the Bengali language which is spoken only by eight percent of the country and the rest of the population which speak hundreds of other languages do not demand to sing it in their mother tongues,” Ravi Kumar said. “Hence, everyone should know those who demand in Sri Lanka to sing the national anthem in Tamil are the ones who attempt to affect peace and harmony among different communities. Though citizens of a country speak many languages, nowhere on earth, the national anthem is sung in many languages.”

He added that this matter is promoted among innocent Tamil people by some people who seek petty political benefits to guarantee their positions in the political arena. He said such politicians in the North and East of Sri Lanka never want innocent Tamil people in their respective areas to receive education, enjoy developed society or the dividends of a peaceful society.
