An open letter to Gotabaya Rajapaksa, President of Sri Lanka
by V. Anandasangaree
This is my second letter to you since your assumption of office as the Head of the State. You are not unaware of the manner in which I deal with sensitive issues. There are people who act deliberately to create problems without realising the consequences.
National anthem is a song sung in praise of the country to which one belongs. I wish to advice you not to allow anybody to stir up the hornets’ nest. No sensible person will interfere in this matter but will fully agree that one should be allowed to praise his country in the language he is conversant with. It is a fundamental right of the individual as well. Any compulsion to sing the National Anthem in one particular language, will lead to unpleasant consequences, in the future also.
The Tamil speaking students know the National Anthem by heart….
