More Sri Lankan state buses carry racist 'Sinhale' sticker

Photograph Groundviews

More of Sri Lanka's state owned buses have been seen to be carrying the racist 'Sinhale' sticker under the lion symbol.

Last month, the word 'Sinhale' (lion's blood in Sinhala) was found spray-painted over Muslim homes in Nugegoda.

The campaign, which has seen the slogan appear on public buses, police motorbikes and other vehicles, is being promoted by current UPFA Parliamentarian Udaya Gammanpila and the Sinhale National Movement.
