Pig’s head hung in front of Muslim shop as racist harassment in Sri Lanka continues

Muslims in Sri Lanka have continued to face racist harassment, with reports that a pig’s head was hung in front of a Muslim store - the latest in a string of incidents to hit the community since the Easter Sunday attacks earlier this year.

"Sinhala Buddhist hegemonic majoritarianism that prevails in Sri Lanka is very dangerous," said rights campaigner Nuwan Athukorala.

The latest incident comes after Human Rights Watch (HRW) warned that Muslims in Sri Lanka continue to face the threat of mob violence and arbitrary arrests amongst other abuses earlier this month.
