this (Black July, 1983) was not a spontaneous upsurge of communal hatred among the Sinhala people.. It was a
series of deliberate acts, executed in accordance with a concerted plan, conceived and
organised well in advance. But who were the planners?... Communal riots in which Tamils
are killed, maimed, robbed and rendered homeless are no longer isolated episodes; they are
beginning to become a pernicious habit."
