Which factor is responsible for increasing the feeling of alienation among the Sri Lankan Tamil's?

Answer :

Sri Lanka is an island nation, south of India. It got independence in 1948. It has a diverse population like most of the South Asian nations.


The population in the majority is Sinhala speakers, which account for about 74% of the total population and rest are Tamil Speakers.


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.
