Murugupillai Jeyarajah, center, a parent claimant of the tsunami survivor infant dubbed “Baby 81,” cries as his wife holds the baby at a hospital in Sri Lanka. AP photo by Rafiq Maqbool. In the disaster zone’s most heart-wrenching custody case, a court ordered Jenita Jeyarajah and her husband to undergo a DNA test to prove they are the parents of the child known as “Baby 81,” triggering a melee at a hospital that led to the would-be parents’ arrests.
The couple had hoped to take custody of the child at Wednesday’s hearing, and became inconsolable when told he would be put back into hospital care until at least April 20 — the next available date on the court calendar when the judge will hear the DNA results. Jenita Jeyarajah beat her chest and shouted she couldn’t be away from her child that long. Then, accompanied by dozens of relatives and friends, she and her husband, Murugupillai, marched a half-mile to the hospital where the baby has been kept since the Dec.

The design of the temple should be finalised and the necessary fund should be made available in this fiscal year itself so that the temple could be built at the earliest. The CM apprised the delegation that the president of Maha Bodhi Society and several companies of Japan and other countries as well as other institutions had offered financial assistance for the construction of various structures in Sanchi, the Buddhist tourism centre in Madhya Pradesh. The then chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan had announced in June that the MP government had got necessary approvals from the central government and also the government of Sri Lanka for construction of a Sita temple in Sri Lanka.
In , Chouhan alleged that the Congress government in Madhya Pradesh was merely checking facts regarding Goddess Sita in Sri Lanka instead of working on his decision to build a temple over there. If the government had been serious it would have started working on the project instead of wasting time visiting Sri Lanka and trying to draw political mileage from the same.

All five fingers are not the same…. People should be respected for who they are. In Sri Lanka, there are two frames: man and woman. In Sri Lanka, ideas about the way men and women should look and act are deeply entrenched. Those who challenge gender norms—including many lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex LGBTI people—may face a range of abuses from state officials and private individuals that compromise the quality and safety of their daily lives, and their ability to access services that are central to their realizing basic human rights.
This report, based on interviews that Human Rights Watch conducted in four Sri Lankan cities between October and January with 61 LGBTI people, focuses primarily on abuses experienced by transgender people—including arbitrary detention, mistreatment, and discrimination accessing health care, employment, and housing. The report also includes examples of discrimination and abuse experienced by individuals based on actual or perceived sexual orientation, many of which are related to a lack of acceptance of gender non-conformity.
It discusses such abuses within a broader legal landscape that fails to recognize the gender identity of transgender people without abusive requirements; makes same-sex relations between consenting adults a criminal offense ; and enables a range of abuses against LGBTI people. Finally, the report outlines reform measures that the government of President Maithripala Sirisena should take—alongside implementing transitional justice mechanisms and security sector reform and adopting a new constitution—to protect the human rights of LGBTI people so they can live free of violence and discrimination.
Sri Lankan law provides no clear path to changing legal gender—although a gender recognition procedure is currently under consideration. Transgender people in Sri Lanka are rarely able to obtain a national identity card and other official documents that reflect their preferred name and gender, exposing them to constant and humiliating scrutiny about their gender identity—including from police at checkpoints, staff at public hospitals, employers, airport staff, and bank tellers.
Transgender people who wish to change the gender designation on their official identity documents face a bewildering array of bureaucratic obstacles. Government officials handle such applications in an ad-hoc manner, even summarily rejecting applications to change gender on official documents, according to interviewees.
