Please understand that they do get paid for thier work, volunteer doenst mean that you get to stay at home, money is given to them and this is indeed a good livlihood for the ladies.

All you negative commentators the first ever Army Commander in the Ceylon Army was a TAMIL so whats the problem. He was Major General Anton M. Muttukumaru from ST Josephs College Colombo. Tamil community as a minority has contributed extremely to Ceylon & Sri Lanka fellow Sinhalese

I am a Buddhist.If anyone treat for different nations inequally definitely he/she is not buddhist (only her/his religion is Buddhism.)Any buddhist has not a race though there is a race in her/his birth certificate.So all people are same and all should be treated as same.On that day we can win the world.If this is a step of that I am happy and congratz.

All tamils are not terrorist. get your facts right. This is a good move and we should all support this.

It is a political trick by the government to show the world. Please note that they have been enlisted to the volunteer force and not the regular force. Which means they are not paid.

@ alert, YES they are, this is one good example. There can’t be any minorities in SL if we are to succeed as a nation.

Agreed. Tamils have right to do as others. But problem here is are they getting it?

Some of the comments encourage to alienate this section of society. It is time to foster goodwill so that there would not be a repeat of the past. Confidence can be built only upon trust. That does not mean one need not be alert to situations and monitoring mechanisms need to be put in place.

Though they are volunteers they don't get military training, so there is a difference here between Sinhalese volunteers and Tamil volunteers. poor girls, got a nice cleaning and check point jobs for a military. we can see them soon in A9 for sure. there are 100s police stations in SL without any Tamil speaking officers and there are tamils living in those area. having dificulties for decade to communicate with police. Even this is applicable for gov offices. Can you appoint Tamil police officers? earlier also Tamil who joined as volunteers (men) now serving at gates of military house and camps. this type of activities will not help for Tamil's wounds all know this is an eye wash. this war give opportunity for majority people to hire minority to serve them.

weha Sunday, 18 November 2012 04:21 AM
im not really sure if this is a good idea. just because the war is over doesn't mean that now they are in love with the sinhalese. there are more issues to be addressed like making sure that they too are treated in the same way, before going for things like this
