Buddhist monk threatens Moothoor Tamil farmers

[TamilNet, Monday, 11 April 2011, 06:45 GMT]
A group of Sinhala hoodlum led by a Buddhist monk had chased away a group of Tamil famers who have been doing paddy cultivation in the fields in Muthalai-madu and Padukaadu in Seruwila division in Trincomalee district for the last four decades. Tamil farmers are from villages Paddiththidal, Ma'natcheanai and Ki'liveddi, who possess deeds for their paddy fields in Muthalai-madu and Padukaadu and have been doing cultivation since 1963.

The Buddhist monk had entered the paddy fields on Friday and threatened a group of Tamil farmers who were preparing their fields for cultivation for the next season to leave the area immediately. In failing to do so they would face death, the Buddhist monk was said to have threatened.

The affected Tamils immediately brought this matter to notice of the Seruwila police. As the police was found to be inactive to their complaint, they brought the matter to the notice of the Moothoor Divisional Secretary who promised to take up the matter to the authority concerned.
