    History is meant to be repeated. My friend, please try to promote the ban of social media in the country. Social media is the biggest ever disaster in the modern generation. It is spreading hatred than compassion. This will at least differ the repeat of history by few years.

    We do not want, but politicians want to have something to cover real crisis.

    Mahela, I totally agree what you say. Sadly it is our politicians who are directly responsible for these violence. Our PM is the weakest person. He doesn't want to stand down and pave way for a good leader. On the other hand the JOs are making use of this weakness. The people should vote for honest politicians and we keep on voting for thugs and thieves. Very soon we will see another garnage of 1983. God bless our country.

    Right words but action must come from politicians elders wise men women religious persons of all faiths. Past sufferings of the public behaviour of our politicians of the day must be learning guidance of all citizens across the land

    muslims are going to breed us out with their massive families... we might as well start this fight while we have control of the military and the state. otherwise we can kiss everything good-bye once they become the majority.

    Good comment by Mahela. Sri Lankan politicians , Police and most importantly the citizens of Sri Lanka should speak and act responsibly.
