SL Police steps up harassment of Tamils after Sinhala extremist MPs heritage-trip

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 23 October 2018, 08:26 GMT]
The SL Police at Nedungkea'nii n Vavuniyaa has again harassed the trustee board of Aathilingkeasvara deity at the heritage hill of Vedukku-naa'ri in Vavuniyaa. The SL Police has told the temple trustees that even putting up a rope ladder is interpreted as construction work which is prohibited. The latest harassment comes after Sinhala parliamentarians belonging to Jathika Nidahas Peramuna (JNP) or National Freedom Front, an extreme Sinhala nationalist JVP-breakaway group, which is aligned with former SL President Mahinda Rajapaksa, visited Mullaiththeevu and Vavuniyaa earlier this month and confronted the Tamil villagers.

Vedukku-naa'ri


There is no pathway to get to the top of the hilltop across its three-layers. People use to climb to the elevation with the support of the cords of the outgrown plants.

Despite a court order that the SL police or intruding monks should not disturb the natural worship of deities of the residents at the hilltop, the SL police are harassing the Tamil villagers on the instruction of extremist sections in the South.

The SL Department of Archaeology has also been exposed of collusion with Sinhala Extremist monks in the ongoing heritage genocide.

The people who want to reach the hilltop to worship Aathi-linkeasvarar deity are risking their lives due to the lack of proper rope ladder, the trustees of the village deity complain.
