All faculties of the Kelaniya University, except for the medical faculty, have been closed indefinitely due to a clash among students.

How did it start?

The Science Faculty of the University organized an exhibition to mark the faculty’s 50th anniversary.

Then the Students Union protested against the exhibition, boiling up the tension.

Clashes between the students left six students injured and rushed to Kiribathgoda Base Hospital.

Few of them have already been discharged.

Visitors attending the fourth day of the exhibition were faced with an uneasy situation due to these clashes.

What the visitors said

“… The exhibition must go on for a few more days but it is unlikely now. Students have been deprived of an opportunity to learn more …”

“… We are here with children , but it seems like a waste of time …”

“… We were denied entry since morning because of the clashes …”

“… This is done for students. Millions are spent on this exhibition. When we come here, there is nothing. Is this free education ? …”
