Yes they stole the New Year from the Tamils and now call it Sinhalese and Hindu New Year. When did the ancient Tamil New Year become the Hind New Year?

After tamils migrated to other countries as economic migrants and the reminder the low cast ones got converted to Catholicism. Remember tamils wanting to celebrate thipongel rather than new year.

You (high cast brahmin tamils) should have thought of all this before placing all your faith on karayer catholic king of tamil sadist sari smuggler almighty sun god. he wanted to destroy tamils in Sri Lanka and he has achieved this in style.

Imagine the hatred Prebah had towered the cast ridden tamil society. He single handedly destroy the tamil society and name the next Kim Jong Ill as Carles Anthony. No cremation and one so call high cast tamil told about LTTE scums, these people never used come in to our house by the front door.

High cast vellahla tamils thought they can use the low cast sari smuggler to further their course to have more power in colombo but never had any intention of having a separate country. Jaffna never been under total LTTE control ever as vellahla never supported the karayer to go this far in Jaffna.

Not only sadist Prebah had more venom and hate towards high cast tamils and kill every true leader (appalupillai amirthelingam, Neelen theruchelvaem, ponnambalam) destroy tamil legitimacy in Sri Lanka.

The people who lost the most are tamils themselves
