The government will never let the underworld groups raise their heads whether they are in the South or North. There will be no terrorism in the soil of Sri Lanka hereafter, President Mahinda Rajapaksa said while addressing the main Thaipongal festival in Jaffna today.

He added that there will be no room for religious, ethnic or social differences in the country. (SAJ)

    Even these words are music to our ears. Please make our motherland a pleasurable place to live peacefully, earn a living legitimately and die when the time comes.

    WHAT about the Thugs under the command of the Politicians

    Monarawila Monday, 17 January 2011 09:26 AM

    Yes that is true then the fundamental problem is the Judicial system must be overhauled and the death sentence has to be brought in!!! otherwise my friend the Police will take the law onto their own hands and you may also be its next victim!!!

    zorro Monday, 17 January 2011 09:33 AM

    KHKaru Monday, 17 January 2011 09:50 AM

    We are counting on you to keep your word. Underworld is much worse than La Nina and El Nino combined.

    TommSamUsa Monday, 17 January 2011 09:57 AM

    FAZAL Monday, 17 January 2011 09:56 AM

    Citizen Monday, 17 January 2011 09:59 AM

    Words are easy and cheap. MR has to walk his talk.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Monday, 17 January 2011 10:09 AM

    Look who is talking! Almost all the thugs from the underworld are in his government and become ministers and lawmakers.

    citizen1 Monday, 17 January 2011 05:56 PM

    Say what? The underworld is running the country!

    Bluff Bluff Monday, 17 January 2011 10:47 AM

    They are not far away, but very close indeed.!

    mike Monday, 17 January 2011 10:48 AM

    all crimes committed in the north were by LTTE. now former LTTE guys have formed gangs got out of camps & comitting crimes. that is the truth. in your definition only a terrorist will be a righteous leader! admit the fact u guys are angry with MR fr defeating LTTE.

    masood Monday, 17 January 2011 11:06 AM

    President is correct this time! Underworld cannot operated if they raise their heads! They always will operate with heads down!! :p

    xlntgson Monday, 17 January 2011 11:04 AM

    @Chandanamithra, don't be quibbling, take it as Sinhala majority country! The word Sri Lankan is coming late, though it is a very vague expression!

    S.Sriranjan Monday, 17 January 2011 09:45 PM

    There will be no Rooms for the Religious,Ethnic or Social differences in Srilanka.This version shold be legalized and the Violators shold be penalize.

    Dee Monday, 17 January 2011 11:19 AM

    Yes terrorism we knew may not rise again, but it certainly is rising in other forms.

    Silva Monday, 17 January 2011 11:07 PM

    Is this for the International Community?
    Who will beleive this?

    Percy Mandawala Tuesday, 18 January 2011 01:03 AM

    There is no underworld when you cacel your sponsorships with underworld.

    bbb Monday, 17 January 2011 12:04 PM

    "there will be no room for religious, ethnic or social differences in the country" what do you mean by this statement

    Ranjith Monday, 17 January 2011 12:33 PM

    When somebody who came to this position over the shoulders of underworld says this, the above saying is more relevant.

    Yehiya-Doha Monday, 17 January 2011 12:42 PM

    Cost of living terrorist is on top.

    Konde bendapu china Monday, 17 January 2011 07:21 AM

    ANIMUS Monday, 17 January 2011 07:35 AM

    UNDERWORLD IS UNDERWORLD. THEY WILL NOT RAISE THEIR HEADS, LEST THEY BECOME VISIBLE & IDENTIFIABLE. THE ISSUE IS UNDERWORLD CHARACTERS MASQUERADING AS LAW MAKERS, LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AND KEEPERS OF LAW !

    Chandanamithraka Monday, 17 January 2011 07:40 AM

    Why did he say this is a Sinhalese country then?? Should have told a Sri Lankans country!!

    amda Monday, 17 January 2011 01:11 PM

    MR needs to sweep the under world,coz it could be only factor which can topple his family & company in future - as the LTTE is no more

    Shyamalee Monday, 17 January 2011 07:53 AM

    This is good Mr President ,But please follow the process through the judiciary and please do not allow the Police to carry out summary justice!! and please no labeling those opposing views as the underworld!!!

    THE UNDER TAKER Tuesday, 18 January 2011 09:55 AM

    LET THE UNDERWORLD WILL REST IN PIECES IN THE UNDERGROUND ITSELF

    MDD Monday, 17 January 2011 01:26 PM

    what are you going to do to ditugamunu

    steve Monday, 17 January 2011 08:01 AM

    Underworld are the rulers!
    I think you forgot your last speech in Jaffna about "no room for ethnic differences" keep it up!

    spark Monday, 17 January 2011 08:08 AM

    Blaming this on underworld is to mislead the population. The crimes taking place in the north are by State bodies and political parties affiliated to the GOSL.. If MR can be bold enough and state that he has failed to control state terrorism, that would have been a righteous leader.

    realworld Monday, 17 January 2011 08:07 AM

    Underwsorld with GOV He know how to use it when ever it want and put blame on Ahinsakaya.

    Pana Epa Wuna Monday, 17 January 2011 08:09 AM

    Correct. Underworld does not have to raise, they are ruling !

    Kotte Kusum. Monday, 17 January 2011 08:13 AM

    Well said Sir. How about the once in the Parliament?

    Mara Wedak Ne! Monday, 17 January 2011 08:19 AM

    Practice what you preach!

    KIRI PUTA Tuesday, 18 January 2011 04:25 AM

    wara Monday, 17 January 2011 08:32 AM

    spark from wire-short !!!

    Janaka Monday, 17 January 2011 08:30 AM

    If underworld cant raise head, then most govt ministers cant raise heads....u know the fact that when u point a finger towards a person 3 other fingers are pointed towards you.

    wara Monday, 17 January 2011 08:32 AM

    It's just a saying, not correct everytime !!

    Siri Monday, 17 January 2011 02:31 PM

    Applause! Applause!! This is mere talking to the gallery, who can only be idiots. Open your eyes wide. A multitude crimes of every label prevails. Not too late to start reading the news.

    Clifford David Tuesday, 18 January 2011 04:52 AM

    Then who is responsible for all the killings and abductions in Jaffna recently??

    knight rider Monday, 17 January 2011 08:35 AM

    most politicians exist and operate with the support of the underworld...unless they are academically and professionally qualified.

    malkanthi Monday, 17 January 2011 03:01 PM

    The one has the wound knows the pain! practical explanation!

    JUNIOR CITIZEN Monday, 17 January 2011 08:52 AM
