    Gross violation of human rights.

    Dr Shafi is a victim of Sinhala nationalists. He is a political victim. We Sinhalese should take to the streets in non violent protests and fight tooth and nail to eradicate this evil from our land.

    If Zaharan is alive he also would have been granted bail.

    If his accusers have falsely destroyed the doctors reputation through fabrication then they should be punished severely. They won't be however as we inhabit a lawless, theocratic state where politicians stoke ethnic hatred to get elected.

    Justice never fails in Dr.shafi's case.

    The doctor is going to have the last laugh. Modayas who arrested him and the women who falsely accused him should face the law of the land. Will it ever happen in SL.?

    Razan Friday, 26 July 2019 01:19 PM

    The system is being tested beyond its limits. But the modayas do not understand that what targets the other will target me tomorrow. We have fully formed to be a country ruled by power and not the law.
