Contrary to what Sri Lanka’s President Maithripala Sirisena boasts regarding his published official stance that he is working towards ethnic and religious harmony, the main page slider of the official website of the President only carries four photographs of him posing with Buddhist monks giving more meaning that he himself supports Buddhist supremacy.
Also the cover page of his official Facebook page highlights him posing in a photograph surrounded by a group of nine Buddhist Monks.
Whilst talking about peace and reconciliation the President appears to be promoting the Sinhala Buddhist supremacy through even his Facebook page where he is further pictured with Buddhist monks.
What is startling even further is that the photograph containing him in the Presidential official web page carries a cropped version of the national flag where the photograph of the symbol of the lion takes center stage cutting off all other ethnic groups. The picture of the lion in the national flag of Sri Lanka carrying a sword represents the Sinhalese ethnicity and the bravery of the Sinhalese nation.
