The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) said today some people were attempting to take the law into their own hands because the government had failed to punish the culprits and stressed the need to arrest the wrongdoers irrespective of who they were or whatever their status might be.

JVP General Secretary, Tilvin Silva, told a news conference that the government should provide true information to the people and pointed out that you could not prevent the spread of fake news just by banning social media websites.

“The government did not properly implement the law. What they should have done was to impose the law against the culprits irrespective of their race, religion or caste. This is why some people are attempting to take the law into their own hands," he said.

Mr. Silva said there were some people who were promoting these racial clashes for their political survival and show the world that there was anarchy in the country.

“Some politicians are spreading fake news for political reasons. Some extremists are also spreading fake news to provoke the people. The government should provide factual information to the people so that they will know about the real situation in the country," he said.

Mr. Silva said the people should not take the law into their hands for whatever reason and that was no way that such acts could be justified.

“Our security forces carried out their duty efficiently. But our political authority failed in their task. The government should reveal who was arrested, who was released, the items taken into custody and whether security has been ensured in the country,” he said. (Ajith Siriwardana)

    What’s the solution? Always talking talking can you ask for a ministerial portfolio and try to solve the issue.

    These people, who take the law into their own hands, have never gotten beyond the status of jungle man and have no brain. They want to take everything from this state but give nothing. The stupidity of these people is more dangerous than any terrorist can ever be.

    This is the absolute truth. The government has failed to punish the culprits. No wonder the people have taken the law into their hands. The president needs to follow the good example of China in dealing with murderous ideologies.

    People are interested only in constructive/contributory statements. Enough of blame game/handoff attitude when suits

    Hello, Tilvin. Rest Assured that some of your own kind are among these so-called wrong doers. Remember that some decades ago you too was one of them. The fingers on your right fist bears testimony.
