SL School Children: 72% have Sex; 29% watch Blue Films and 18% Drug Addicts – Government
Posted by Ajith on February 10, 2009
Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL) makes interesting discoveries these days. This is the latest: 72% of Sri Lanka school children have engaged in various sexual activities, 29% of them watch blue films and 18% are drug addicts. So much for ‘Mathata Thitha’ of Mahinda Chinthana. One wonders why we continue to pay teachers and principals from public money. What they were doing till all this happened?
This comes from none other than a ministry study and published in the first page of state controlled Daily News on Feb 10, 2008. Yes, it is the same newspaper that once published stories like “100 terrorists killed; one soldier receives minor injuries” (They have stopped the number game for some time, guess it would be too difficult to keep count.) So believe this story too at your own risk.
On the other hand, it could also possible that the ‘New Sri Lanka’ (Aluth Sri Lankavak) promised by the present government is actually happening.
