De-gazetting "traitors"


There was absolutely no need for the big official ha-ho about cancelling the British period Gazetting of Keppetipola and other Kandyan fighters of the 1818 rebellion, as "traitors". Of course, they were - but to the British. And, as such, this British Gazette automatically makes these traitors to the British Heroes to the Sinhalese. What a farce it was to exhume this document and whitewash an antiquated British Gazette.
