    Why can't the clergy without involving in politics teach good moral values to people and ensure the new generation has good ethics and values and no hatred, evil and jealousy.

    This is Sri Lanka.... anyway, we must give the credit for our Police Department. Why not without Political Interference give the off hands to the Police Department they will catch the Easter Sunday attackers. Yes... for sure. Fmr. President Sirisena also subjected.

    Police involved in mostly all crimes.. these inspectors need illegal sex... what a sick people..

    If head was decapitated, their would have been a lot of blood in the lodge. So it seems something totally fishy, specially when State entities who are now known even in the UN as utter murderers are involved.

    This is un-believeable, if the women would have been murdered while be-heading the women would have screamed or shouted with pain. Moreover, why this man brought the body to a crowded place in Pettah? Fishy.... Fishy.... something wrong somewhere.

    Wilfred Anandappa Wednesday, 03 March 2021 05:44 PM

    Carrying the huge luggage and loading to the bus and off loading, its not easy. May be he is a boxer, but in the small quarry door... indeed something is really fishy. Oh God... this is Sri Lanka now.
