'Sinhale' Word Written On Walls Of Some Muslim Houses In Nugegoda

Sinhale,   a campaign initiated by an ultra - nationalist Sinhala Buddhist group reached a new height today with an unknown group writing the same word on the walls of some houses belonging to Muslims in the Nugegoda area. 

People from the area said it could be a well - orchestrated move to provoke the Muslims in the Nugegoda area and push them into a clash of some sort. 

"The word has been written on the walls and gates of Muslim houses last night. It is clear that their main target has been Muslims," a resident told Asian Mirror.  

They said the residents would lodge Police complaints in connection with the incident. 

The 'Sinhale'  campaign was started on social media platforms, such as Facebook, by an extremist group seemingly supportive of the Bodu Bala Sena organization and former President Mahinda Rajapaksa. However, neither the Bodu Bala Sena nor the former President has openly associated with the group carrying out the ' Sinhale' propaganda campaign. 

It was first launched as a sticker campaign and it is now being used as a tool to harass ethnic and religious minorities in the country, social and political observers said.
