SL-UGC steps up Sinhalicisation of Batticaloa University

[TamilNet, Thursday, 08 August 2013, 22:34 GMT]
Sri Lanka's University Grant Commission (UGC) has been admitting more Sinhala students to the universities in the North and East. About 600 to 700 Sinhala students have been enrolled to the faculties of Arts and Culture, Management, Science and Agriculture in the Eastern University (EUSL) in Batticaloa alone, news sources in the East said. A Sri Lankan police station has been established inside the University premises in the name of providing protection to Sinhala students. The SL policemen have been monitoring the activities of Tamil-speaking students with the assistance of paramilitary groups. A Buddha statue has been declared opened last month at the presence of the Vice Chancellor inside the campus by the Buddhist Students Forum, which was backed by the UGC.

Sri Lanka Army officials, Catholic priests and the Registrar of the Batticaloa University with Sinhala undergraduates participated at the opening ceremony of the Buddha statue.

A section of the university staff complain that the Vice Chancellor has been forced to administer the Eastern University according to the direction of the Colombo government without consulting the staff of the institution at all.

Informed sources in Trincomalee said that similar pressure has also been exerted on the administration at the Trincomalee campus of the Batticaloa University.

The entire operations are carried out on the theoretical basis of the LLRC recommendations of the genocidal Sinhala state, which have been endorsed and further nuanced by the Washington - New Delhi Establishments at international forums such as the UNHRC, political observers in the East commented.

The thrust of the LLRC-recommendation was erasing everything of exclusive Tamil identity, including land, in the island before 2020.

The Batticaloa University has been purposefully named as ‘Eastern University of Sri Lanka’ by the Sinhala State to erase the identity of Batticaloa.
