There was a sinister move to blame two Opposition MPs for the violence in Kandy, Joint Opposition MP Wimal Weerawansa told Parliament yesterday.
"The Government is trying to get away by blaming Opposition MPs Lohan Ratwatte and Dilum Amunugama for the violence in Kandy," MP Weerawansa said.
He charged that the Police have been advised to prepare the reports accordingly.
"The Government is fully aware as to who is behind the violence," he added.
He said concerns were raised by Sinhalese on the sudden changes of Muslim women's attire and the introduction of Arabian culture to Sri Lanka lately.
He said the present Government had done nothing to defuse the tension. (Yohan Perera and Ajith Siriwardana)

When Katugastota was burning we saw your dish washer Muzamil, who betrayed the Muslims.

Wonder where was Wimal when all these racism issues started during the previous regime. He must have had a vocal cord problem then. If he knows who is behind this why not come out with it instead of beating around the bush. All talk but no action.

Hey Wimal.If everybody is so concerned about the clothing and culture of Muslims why are we sending our men and women to MiddleEast countries ? We have to thank them for employing our people who would otherwise be living in abject poverty here .

Politicians such as these are the most evil riot organizers, they create all these racial disharmony and inhumane actions for their sick Political Agenda. As the Cricket star and legend Kumar Sangakkara in a tweet said there should be no place for racism and violence in the country.“No one in Sri Lanka can be marginalised or threatened or harmed due to their ethnicity or religion,” he tweeted.“We are one country and one people. Love, trust and acceptance should be our common mantra. No place for racism and violence. Stand together and stand strong,” he tweeted.
