The particles that were found in food at an eatery in Ampara, which was earlier rumoured to be sterilizing chemicals, were clumps of flour, the Government Analyst reported to Police.
“They were contents of carbohydrates,” Government Analyst A. Weliangage said.
Police sources said according to Government Analyst the particles could be considered as a made of carbohydrate.
Earlier, a person who had 'parata' at the said eatery had circulated the incident in social media claiming that it was a sterilizing chemical, following which several violent incidents had taken place in the area. (Indika Ramanayake and Tharindu Jayawardena)

You expect the Govt. Analyst to be in Amapara when stupid people make such accusations. The Govt. should arrest the person who created the story as a deterrent to other pranksters.

Das, check the dictionary for the meaning of Tablets and Clumps. Check how the clumps are formed.

So is the person going to be prosecuted. Are those who attacked and destroyed property going to be punished or are we going to pretend that nothing happened and let the minorities be persecuted using such fabrications.

Not surprised of the analysis but why did it take so long to release this information? Very poor job by the government handling this entire issue. I am sure the racist will now twist this news to say the government/analyst is hiding the truth to support Muslims!

Some fools made it an issue without any logic or scientific evidence and another set of fools vandalised. Lost properties and hatred was created.Overall we proved the world we have a set of fools who believe that they cannot make a woman pregnant because they had parata from a Muslim restaurant. Is this what we want to be a Wonder of Asia?

How stupid are our Sri Lankans, birth control pills have to be taken daily, sterilization medication has to be inserted into the skin so that it releases continuously. Anything eaten passes through the body with the stools. How can people be made sterile with something eaten once.

The mere detection of clumps of flour by some people has created so much of disaster in the country. Has the law enforcement authority apprehended the trouble makers in this connection? I think the new Minister of Law

Is anyone questioning why people are worried about sterilization pills? Is there a fertility problem within certain communities? Is that the real problem and we are trying to find a scapegoat?
