The Police have begun registering Tamils in the Wellawatte area under the police ordinance, the police said. However, the Democratic People’s Front charged the police of registering Tamils under section 23 of the Emergency regulations.

The General Secretary of the Democratic People’s Front and Western Provincial Councilor, Dr. N. Kumaragurubaran told Daily Mirror online that he made his protest to the DIG Colombo, H.M.D Herath on this issue.

DIG Herath had reportedly told Dr. Kumaragurubaran that they were instructed by the higher authority to register all the people including Tamils living in the area. The DIG also informed that they have commenced the registration process from the Western Province, Wellawatte Police division.

    here we go again, we sri lankans need to be ashamed about our rules for the way they treat our brethren and fellow countrymen. what option they have, other than to turn to another group who will promise them the land of their dreams.

    How unfortunate is this? After coming this far and defeating terrorism why an earth are we going down this road again?

    where are the democratic rights the politicians are harping about. What will happen if the Tamils decided to stage a non violent protest and fast unto death.?

    Is SL going back to old times?

    Where are the 'patriots' who called the minorities 'brothers'? Will they now come out to protest this 'registration'?

    This is unfortunate! We should be wise enough to refrain from actions that are liable to be construed "discriminatory." The 'need of the hour' is national reconciliation.

    For what?

    What's the big deal? Everyone is being registered, and which Sinhalese or Muslim or Malay or Burgher has protested? It is good to know, who lives in Wella! I don't protest too, as I live in Wella...

    Then why only in Wellawatta?

    PJ Friday, 09 July 2010 05:50 AM

    Reconciliation process begins at Wellawatta?

    So much for His Excellency's assurance that there are no more minorities/majorities, race/caste differances in Sri Lanka.

    kumar Friday, 09 July 2010 06:11 AM

    See the heading ,it says" Tamils registered again" Not everyone.

    After winning the war, we all looked forward to a bright and prosperous future! Alas! we are in reverse gear!! We, the average Sri Lankans will never profit with our bunch of self seeking greedy politicians at the helm. When will we ever produce a Mr. Nelson Mandela? That's the only time we'll turn around!

    All minorities will always been treated like this until majority Singhalese change there attitude and there philosophy.
    Please fallow the example of Singapore and its multicultural island majority with Chinese and other nationals .until the Singhalese politicians change there attitude this county will be like this in 25 years or 50 pehaps it will be worst.
