Srilankan female lawyer posted derogatory picture of Goddess Kali on Facebook

Srilankan Hindus protest and demand stringent action

Not only Hindus in Sri Lanka, but Indian Hindus should also oppose it. Hindus also feel that if there is any disrespect or vilification caused to Holy places of Hindus anywhere in the world, the Government of India should take immediate steps to stop it.

Colombo (Sri Lanka) – Hindu organisations in Colombo have strongly opposed the posting of derogatory photographs of Goddess Mahakali on Facebook, by advocate, Jeevanee Kariyawasam. These organisations have demanded action against Jeevanee. Some organisations have also demanded for the prosecution of the lawyer under cyber law.

Speaking to the Russian news web channel Sputnik, the Shiv Sena leader MK Satchitanathan said that the provocative post has not only hurt the Hindu sentiments but also hurt that stratum of society that believes in peaceful living. He said that they are receiving letters from Sri Lankan Tamils around the world who have also written to the Sri Lankan embassy of their country demanding Jeevanee’s arrest and action against Facebook. He warned that if Jeevanee is not arrested the revolt will intensify.

A Hindu Priests Association has appealed to start a campaign to lodge a complaint against Jeevanee with the local Police. They have also written a letter to Sri Lankan President, Gotabaya Rajapaksa in this regard.

Sri Lankan MP, M. Ganeshan has come out in protest against this and has demanded Jeevanee’s arrest.
