State three deman
When Sri Lanka recognized Sinhala as the only official language it disregarded Tamils. They felt that they were denied equality. As a result, the relationship between the Sinhala and the Tamils strained and the Sri Lankan Tamils launched movements against the government.
The Tamil speaking people have got two subgroups one is Sri Lankan Tamils who are the natives of Sri Lanka and another is Indian Tamils whose forefathers came to Sri Lanka as planters during the colonial period.
The demands were:
1. Tamil to be recognized as the official language.
2. They demanded a separate province.
3. They demanded equality in jobs.
Sri Lankan Tamils launched movements against the government. This distrust took the shape of Civil war in which thousands of people were killed.
