"To us all towns are one, all men our kin.
Life's good comes not from others' gift, nor ill
Man's pains and pains' relief are from within.
Thus have we seen in visions of the wise !."

- Tamil Poem in Purananuru, circa 500 B.C

INDICTMENT AGAINST SRI LANKA

Sri Lanka's Genocidal War - '95 to '01

Hindu temples attacked...

The All Ceylon Hindu Congress in a statement issued in Colombo on 27 January 1998 said "It is with immense pain of mind that we have come to know that 24 divine statues if Kandy Sri Selva Vinayagar Kovil have been damaged by hooligans on Sunday January 25, and the divine chariot of Kurunduvatte Sri Muthumariamman Kovil was also burnt on the same day".

"We strongly condemn these incidents and call upon the government to take necessary action to pay sufficient compensations to the management of these temples for restoration work."

The statement also referred to the destruction and damages to a number of temples and other religious and places of worships during the military action in the north and east.

It went on to say "We might add that most of these still remain unrepaired, and not restored to their original condition. In fact devotees are not allowed to go to some Kovils"  (Press  Statement  by the All Ceylon Hindu Congress   President Mr. V. Kailasapillai and e General Secretary Mr. Kandiah Neelakandan.-   27 January 1998 )
