The Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) today urged the police and security forces to implement the law against the angry mob that tried to take the law into their hands by hiding behind the murder of a student in Jaffna recently.
The JHU said it was evident that another agenda was behind the violent protest campaign carried out by angry mobs by raising black flags, obstructing roads and staging a hartal by hiding behind this incident.
JHU media secretary Nishantha Sri Warnasinghe alleged those angry mobs were threatening the Sinhalese in Jaffna and forcing them to leave that area.
He said racist, separatist and terrorist groups were trying to raise their heads again by hiding behind this incident and added they were resorting to violent acts as well.
Mr. Warnasinghe said the law should be implemented against the culprits who committed the crime.
He said the government and security forces should take steps without any hesitation to implement the law against those who were behind the hartals and resorting to violent acts without allowing separatist and racist groups to disrupt the civilian lives in the North. (Ajith Siriwardana)

Yes no one can take the law into their own hands and should be dealt accordingly. But please give a break....Stop creating this as a seperatist issue....this is a reaction of public outrage as in the case of Delhi gang rape. Of course this is unacceptable and the offenders have to be brought before the law

Was any offender/suspect in this rape case coming from a community other than Tamil-speaking?

Tread carefully, lest we create another monster.

Nishantha you are a disgrace of the country. You must be supporting the former dictator MR on the sly to create unrest in the country by inciting racism. If your daughter, if you have one, only will realize the feelings of the people of all age who were protesting against the heinous crime of this magnitude. Please mind your words before uttering anything. President is trying his best to promote reconciliation among the community and you are trying to create problem to him with MR!

No, suspects are also Tamils

The only ones who wants to destabilize the country right now is MR and his gang. They would do anything to get back their power. If you investigate fast enough I am sure you can get to hidden hand behind this whole thing.

To promote reconcilliation action must be taken swiftlty to bring the culprits swift justice and at the same time not allow the situation to overflow in the North.

JHU is one of the main parties in this country working with another agenda to put this country in trouble which they did with MR till recently to the hilt.
