What made the Sri

Answer :

The Sinhalese Government stated an Act in 1956. This was the Official Language Act No. 03, 1956, under which English was recognized as the official language of Ceylon along with Sinhalese. This Act did not give official recognition to Tamil. The Sri Lankan Tamils felt alienated due to the following reasons :

1. They felt that none of the political parties gave importance to their language and culture.

2. They felt that they were denied equal political rights.

3. They realized that the government would discriminate them and they will not get proper employment opportunities.

Thus, the relation between the Sri Lankan Tamils and Sinhalese strained over time.
