Flaunting 'victory' to Tamils in Colombo

[TamilNet, Sunday, 17 May 2009, 16:51 GMT]
Sinhala mob carrying the Lion Flag of Sri Lanka, and shouting 'jeyawewa' (victory), menacingly hover around the Tamil suburbs in Colombo such as Ko'l'lup-piddi, Ve'l'la-vaththai, Bambalapiti, Dehiwela, Koddaagn-cheanai and Maddakku'li, news reports from Colombo said. Their vehicles in which they roam around, are also guarded by flag-carrying police and intelligence vehicles, the reports said. The Tamil pedestrians are humiliated and ridiculed by this gang and by the armed personnel at security points by being specifically addressed and told that their leader Pirapaharan has been captured and everything was over, the reports further said.

The Lion Flags were hoisted on both sides of the Galle Road in Colombo and police personnel were seen distributing flags to shopkeepers and householders and enforcing them to hoist the flags.

'Kiri-bath' (milk-rice) served on auspicious occasions by the Sinhalese was seen being offered to pedestrians in different parts of Colombo as part of the 'celebrations'.

Meanwhile, video clippings Sunday showed Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa, being received at the airport after his Jordan visit by a jubilant crowd of colleagues and well-wishers, including Mr. Douglas Devananda, giving him a welcome kiss.
