After the MAS employee’s hateful video went viral, the IMF seems to have gotten highly agitated by this serious threat coming from none other than the son of the secretary of the NPP itself, who some claim to be the next leader of JVP in the making.

nm perera 2“That in the opinion of this House, the Ceylon [constitution] Order-in-Council be amended forthwith to provide for the Sinhalese and Tamil languages to be state languages of Ceylon with parity of status throughout the Island……. Mr Speaker, I want in the first instance to ask this question: What are we aiming at? What is the objective we have in mind for this Country? Do we want a united, strong and an integrated Nation or not?.... If democracy is to be treated as an arithmetical concept that whatever majority decides it must be accepted merely because they have got superiority in members, that is not democracy….. The test of a democratic decision is the morality of the law…. There is no reason why they should separate unless we force them to separate by making Tamil a regional language confirmed to the Northern and Eastern provinces. That is what we are driving them to, that is what people who are advocating Sinhalese as the only official language do not seem to realize.” - (Dr. N.M Perera moving a motion on language in House of Representatives - October 19, 1955)
