Product Description

This is a book no publisher or printer in Sri Lanka wanted to be associated with, fearing for their lives. Their fears are justified. Under the despotic political regime headed by the megalomaniacal Mahinda Rajapaksa, journalists and writers in Sri Lanka who stood up for the truth were brutally murdered, tortured, kidnapped or made to disappear for good. Self-described Buddhists, Mahinda Rajapaksa and his cohorts embraced all that is ugly in his Sinhala-Buddhist toxic political ideology, using and abusing Buddhism to the maximum. With this book, the writer has placed her head on the block and in her words: "I may face the same fate as my late colleagues Lasantha Wickrematunge and Richard de Zoysa, but it's a sacrifice I am ready to make for the sake of future generations of Sri Lanka!"
