    Roshanaly: SF is not a retired officer. He is now holding an active service rank. So is Shavendra Silva.

    MR met with his former murders of innocent civilians. What's the difference between NTJ(National Thawheed Jamath) and these murders.

    When these defence heads were there, LTTE terrorists bombed Central Bank, Dalada Maligawa and they even used air-raids. They are fraudsters.
