ETHNIC POLITICS IN SRI LANKA AND INVOLVEMENT OF INDIA

Abstract:
South Asia has an extensive and exclusive history from the standpoint of identity and population displacement. Ethnicity denotes a sagacity of the harmony of identity and cultural values of a specific cluster. The problem of identity becomes a significant issue for ‘locating oneself in society’ in contemporary world society. The attitude of identity embodies the image of ‘Self’ and ‘others’. This opinion is multifaceted and evaluated idiosyncratically in several frameworks. Ethnic delinquency rises in national and intercontinental politics in different traditions: a) Civilization of Clashes, b) Tribalism, c) Insufficiency of Resources d) Over-population.

Political characteristic of each group develops a significant political phenomenon in emerging world of the 20th century and Sri Lanka is no exception. Sri Lanka is a multi – ethnic, multi – religious and multi – lingual state in the South Asia. Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka has been a portion of land, ranging from the mainland of India disconnected by Palk Strait and practically bounded by oceanic water. It is an exclusive country which was occupied by the different types of governments: authoritarian, fascist and democratic. The final goalmouth of its commanding political organization with centralized presidential system is to set up a stable society in the country.

Present paper opens up the root grounds of ethnic struggle in Sri Lanka and points towards the numerous ways in which this civil confrontation stood the threat to the Indian national security. The ethnic confrontation is between Sinhala and Tamil nationality which has an inference for India’s security due to the presence of Tamil nationality in the state of Tamil Nadu.
