    This is the stark reality Sri Lanka has had to contend with and resolve. The formidable struggle to clear minefields is still ongoing more than one and a half years following the conclusion of the terrorist war. What naturally comes to one's mind on reading this news item is the seemingly complete lack of knowledge of this problem and its magnitude, displayed by some countries in the west and their so called human rights organizations. How many of them ever reckon the presence of this monumental problem when they kept on issuing harshly worded statements critical of the Sri Lanakan government, demanding the prompt settlement of IDPs?
