Isn't migration a right?

Sri Lanka police say that Navy arrested 53 more persons off Nilaveli sea in the eastern coast as they were attempting to migrate illegally to Australia.

The arrested persons have been handed over to the Criminal Investigation Department for further investigations, police say.

Of the 53 persons, 41 are Tamils, five are Muslims and seven are Sinhalese, police say. Two are women.

They have been identified as the residents of Trincomalee, Negambo, Kilinochchi and Jaffna.

Within the month of July, Sri Lankan authorities have arrested 454 persons with nine boats so far for attempting to migrate illegally to Australia.

The majority of the aspirant migrants are Tamils disgruntled in the context of Sri Lanka government's stubborn rejection of addressing their social and political problems.

The government says that the migration drive of Tamils is well thought political strategy of the Ealamist Diaspora.  Let it be so! Then what are the counter initiatives of the Sri Lanka government?

The numbers of Sinhalese and Muslims that want to migrate are also swelling. If the numbers of Tamils are an indicators of repression of minority communities, the numbers of Sinhalese are indications of economic burden.

People as well as animals move away from danger for safety. Isn't it a right?
