Hindu Tamils & Sinhala Buddhists are in Sri Lanka are one distinct community from Muslims or Christians, according to a message from a Hindu extremist politician shared by ex MP Namal Rajapaksa.

“In Sri Lanka, Hindu Tamils & Sinhala Buddhists are one community just as In India our Constitution defines in Article 25 a Hindu as one who is not Muslim or Christian. That is the way also of peace for Sri Lanka. Hence I hold PM Rajapaksa a symbol of that unity&demonstrates that,” says the Swamy tweet retweeted by Namal Rajapaksa.
