    It is not the social media that is the obstacle for national unity, but the mindset of the people from North

    " a businessman blaming others for his failures will never become a successful businessman in his whole life, he should find solutions to his own problems whether created by himself or others and move forward with success in his mind".

    You became a President, because lies of the Social Media.

    Self-serving garbage politicians are the real obstacle. Look inwards without uttering nonsense - and 'do' something for a change maybe?

    Sir we cant stop FB or social media and all the countries are facing it but what we are lacking is leadership and proper governance. You are letting extremists to do what they want to in SL and blaming something you have no control over. Sir please take control of our country or else we will never be able to get up.

    Between MS and RW, people have been taken for the ride of their lives. This bunch should get out and let those who can manage the process, do so.

    How ever much there are social media sites which could disrupt peace among people of this country, there cannot be a problem if people do not give in to them and fall prey to them!

    Social Media was used to topple the former president.

    Blaming Social Media is not a welcome sign. Govt could counter propaganda to educate the Public.

    people must be rally stupid if they fall prey to social media propaganda.

    If a country to develop, it needs to be very optimistic in everything. Instead of seeing social media as an obstacle, one should think how the same social media can be used to unite people. If the law and order in this country were carried out perfectly there would not be any religious conflicts in this country.
