    Who cares, if the government doesn't want to sing in Tamil? This are just ceremonial BS that does not add any value to a humans life, other than divide them.

    Neville Wednesday, 05 February 2020 11:17 AM

    Well, they can sing in English, Arabic, Malayalam and Malyan too.

    SLs Wednesday, 05 February 2020 11:31 AM

    Read your country constitution.

    Neville Wednesday, 05 February 2020 11:22 AM

    Tell me one country in the world where National Anthem is sung in all the languages representing all the communities in the country.If so, in India the National Anthem has to be sung in around 700 languages. What a farce ?

    N.P.Karunadasa Wednesday, 05 February 2020 11:31 AM

    Our neighbour India has more than 100 languages, but their national anthem, 'Jana gana mana' which, I think, is in Bengali, is sung only in that language throughout India.

    Chandana Wednesday, 05 February 2020 11:37 AM

    Why don't you with greek ....

    Love Sri Lanka Wednesday, 05 February 2020 11:45 AM

    The constitution clearly states you can sing the national anthem in Sinhala OR Tamil. Why are people creating problems that are not relevant.

    idiot Wednesday, 05 February 2020 11:53 AM

    i wonder how many sinhaleyas and muslims were there.probably non.

    Charmari G Wednesday, 05 February 2020 02:37 PM

    Who cares about the national anthem anyway

    Udaya Wednesday, 05 February 2020 12:32 PM

    So they need to look at a piece of paper to sing the national anthem? If they were so enthusiastic and genuine, they should remember the lines without having to refer to paper. Proves that this is nothing but a publicity stint with ulterior motives.

    Aka Wednesday, 05 February 2020 12:34 PM

    Idiots who are reading the sinhala script which contains tamil words. If they really cared, they would have learned the language.

    kumar Wednesday, 05 February 2020 01:47 PM

    Tamils don't need to sing the National Anthem. We should make our own.

    Jack Wednesday, 05 February 2020 01:50 PM

    Reminds how some Bishops Nuns took the forefront to sing for LTTE. Young ones dreaming of Swiss Visa.

    Sheri Wednesday, 05 February 2020 02:06 PM

    Nothing by a publicity stunt! Ha Ha!

    Tamil Wednesday, 05 February 2020 02:50 PM

    The biggest joke is ,not the Hindus but the Catholics becoming Tamil nationalists.
