This is reproduced below. Background The ethnic conflict in Sri Lanka has many root causes and consequences that are closely interlinked. However, given its complexities, it should not be assumed that these causes are part of linear historical processes where one event led to another.
Origins of the Sri Lankan civil war The origins of the Sri Lankan Civil War lie in the continuous political rancor between the majority Sinhalese and the minority Tamils. There was initially little tension among Sri Lanka's two largest ethnic groups, the Sinhalese and the Tamilswhen Ponnambalam Arunachalama Tamil, was appointed representative of the Sinhalese as well the Tamils in the national legislative council.
In major Sinhalese and Tamil political organizations united to form the Ceylon National Congress, under the leadership of Arunachalam, to press the colonial government for more constitutional reforms.
William Manning actively encouraged the concept of "communal representation" and created the Colombo town seat inwhich dangled between the Tamils and the Sinhalese. Perera and Philip Gunawardena demanded the replacement of English as the official language by Sinhala and Tamil.
In November a motion that "in the Municipal and Police Courts of the Island the proceedings should be in the vernacular " and that "entries in police stations should be recorded in the language in which they are originally stated" were passed by the State Council and referred to the Legal Secretary.
However, in J. Jayawardene moved in the State Council that Sinhala should replace English as the official language. Inimmediately after independence, a controversial law was passed by the Ceylon Parliament called the Ceylon Citizenship Actwhich deliberately discriminated against the Indian Tamil ethnic minority by making it virtually impossible for them to obtain citizenship in the country.
Over the next three decades more thanIndian Tamils were deported back to India. In Prime Minister S. Bandaranaike passed the " Sinhala Only Act ", which replaced English with Sinhala as the only official language of the country. This was seen as a deliberate attempt to discourage the Sri Lankan Tamils from working in the Ceylon Civil Service and other public services.

Under the policy, students were admitted to university in proportion to the number of applicants who sat for the examination in their language.
Officially the policy was designed to increase the representation of students from rural areas. In practice the policy reduced the numbers of Sri Lankan Tamil students who had previously, based on their examination scores alone, gained admission in a higher proportion than their participation in the examination.
They were now required to gain higher marks than Sinhalese students to gain admission to universities. The policy was abandoned in A further movement, the Eelam Revolutionary Organisation of Students EROSformed in Manchester and London; it became the backbone of the Eelamist movement in the diaspora, arranging passports and employment for immigrants and levying a heavy tax on them.
