Sinhala Nationalism on the War Path


Sri Lanka's Civil society groups receive death threats

Leaders of civil society organisations calling for a peaceful solution to Sri Lanka’s ethnic conflict have received death threats from an extreme Sinhala nationalist group calling itself ‘Theraputtabhaya force.’ The letter, which claimed responsibility for the murder of journalist Sivaram Dharmeratnam, says that all traitors should be ready to become "fertiliser for the motherland" if they continue to betray it.

Titled, “Announcement to the enemies of the motherland,” the letter was signed by a ‘Commander Mayadunne.’
