    I spoke to many Sinhalese and Tamils on destabilising India. This is one thing we all can agree on. India is a danger to all of us. Unfortunately, India is not changing her colours.

    We should help Pakistan in their attempt to destabilise India.

    The war was finished with the help of India and Western countries so we should not bite the hand that feeds us. Without the help of India or the West we would still be talking about LTTE.
