Sivanadipatha to Shri Padasthana

Thinakaran,Thinakural, and Virakesari reported a statement made by the All Ceylon Hindu Congress. The statement was that “Sivanadi Patham,” (Siva’s footprint) has been replaced by the Tamil variant of the Sinhala word, “Sri Padasthanaya” (Lord Buddha’s footprint).

It was mentioned that the English variant, “Adam’s peak” was also changed in 2016. It was also mentioned that though a government official’s comments on this name-change in Tamil was telecast in 2017, the government did not take any action against it and that this was a great injustice to Hinduism and the Hindu community.

Despite its clear importance to the Hindu community of the country, this was only reported in the Tamil newspapers and was not captured by the Sinhala newspapers.
