    Racism is in USA, UK, Australia etc. Nothing new.

    Liberal One Monday, 05 March 2018 03:44 PM

    I wonder how can we make our people understand not to take the law in to their own hands? and not to make a single killing into a racial conflict?

    Law violators should be severely punished irrespective of their religious background or status...Otherwise most of the times victims are always innocent people...

    Siyabala Monday, 05 March 2018 04:00 PM

    The public has taken Law into their hands because the perpetrators have not been taken into custody. Sinhalese always eat the humble pie. Minority can do any mischief or violence

    Arnold Monday, 05 March 2018 05:43 PM

    The killer has been arrested already.

    whiskymadam Monday, 05 March 2018 05:53 PM

    sadly this is true ... I'm all for EQUALITY not special privileges for minority

    Lalith Monday, 05 March 2018 05:56 PM

    Better read the news first and know the actual situation. People like you only create problem with half cooked knowledge. All those crime doers been arrested. So whom we are beating? Around the bush?

    BuffaloaCitizen Tuesday, 06 March 2018 08:59 AM

    Can anyone give me a list of Sinhalese that were arrested and punished during the 1977, 1983 riots? Can you also let me have how many Sinhalese were arrested for the Aluthgama incident?

    He certainly is the king of racism, his henchies must be coordinating the whole thing.

    Leo Monday, 05 March 2018 04:08 PM

    Its the stupid government that is making the situation from bad to worse. It was 2 weeks ago a man was killed but still no action is taken. It just makes the job of hardliners like BBS easier.

    Hang those who killed the innocent person. In the same rope hang those who turned this into a racial conflict and torched shops and damaged houses.

    Silver needle Monday, 05 March 2018 04:16 PM

    Bravo ! On one side public protesting against Chinese opening shop on the other hand govt invites investors to invest in SL and here we have a law and order problem.Really wonder whether we want SL to go back to Stone Age already 30 years lost driving our country back. I think they always relish being in stone age

    SL Monday, 05 March 2018 04:31 PM

    The way the person was killed or butchered for being a driver ,The way the police has behaved after the incident. The reason for killing him ( for not letting to overtake the lorry) .Is there any sympathy on the killers with swords?

    Anthony Monday, 05 March 2018 05:00 PM


    Arnie Monday, 05 March 2018 05:44 PM

    Minister of Law and order has gone fishing.

    Earnest Monday, 05 March 2018 05:51 PM

    A small attack for the attackers but a devastating blow to the Sri Lankan economy and the future generations.

    Veena Tuesday, 06 March 2018 06:07 PM

    I hope and pray that there will not be another civil war based on racial indifference's . Didn't we suffer enough ? must we put our kids through same ??

    DH Wednesday, 07 March 2018 11:26 PM

    People should think twice before they react. We are facing a huge economical drop down and hundreds of years will be needed to get rid of that. A real patriot will never support for violence
