One of the most beautiful countries in South Asia, Sri Lanka is located half an hour from India. It should be noted that although they are generally influenced by the culture of India, they also have a real culture. Nearly 25 million people live in this country, which is the mother tongue of Tamil and Sinhala. Buddhists and Hindus make up a population of about 86% and Muslims are close to 10%.
History of Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka is one of South Asia’s most contentious countries. Sri Lanka, which is one of the countries with the deepest civil war and exploitation, has a full dramatic history with the local massacre of Moors and their expulsion from this region. The fact that Hindu and Buddhist monks are in the center of the country and exclude people of other ethnic origin is one of the biggest sufferings of minorities living in this country. The attempts to become the first state in 1948 were unsuccessful and later on, they gained their independence in 1972.
