This book deals with the 1915 riots in Ceylon which broke out between the Sinhalese Buddhists and a small section of Mohammedans or Ceylon Moors and the brutal suppression of it by the British colonial authorities. The riots started on 28 May 1915 at Kandy with intolerance and aggressive-ness of a small section of the Mohammedans, known to the Sinhalese as Hambayas, and their insistence on the religious processions of the Sinhalese Buddhists passing in silence before their mosques in Gampola and Kandy. It soon spread to neighbouring villages on 30 May 1915. Fearing it to be a native uprising, martial law was first declared by the British colonialists there on 2 June 1915 and was only terminated on 30 August 1915, during which many summary executions and other atrocities were carried out by the colonial rulers. It was the beginning of the Freedom movement in Ceylon.
