The recently put up name board “Sinhala Ravaya Village” at Naavat-kuzhi in Jaffna. “Sinhala Ravaya” is an organisation led by Buddhist monks working in parallel with the “Buddhist Power Force” (BBS). Note that the name of the extremist group is not given in English in the name board. The English text only states ‘Since 2011’ as a smokescreen to protect the current regime. The full name is rendered in Sinhala and Tamil as ‘Sinhala Ravaya Village’. “Ravaya” literally means “Sound” or “Voice”. The term is also used to imply news.
