Mullaithivu: Tamils thwart Sinhalisation efforts in Kurunthoormalai

State-backed Sinhalisation efforts in Kurunthurmalai, Mullaithivu, were thwarted by Tamils on Tuesday.

Escorted by Sri Lankan police officers, a group of Buddhist monks attempted to enter Kurunthurmalai and set up a Buddhist temple and a Sinhala colony.

Upon hearing the arrival of the monks, Tamils blocked the roads, and after a standoff with the Sri Lankan police, they forced the monks to turn back.
