Users are not required to register themselves with the Government to access social media websites and maintain an account on those websites, the Sri Lanka Information Technology Association (SLITA) said.

SLITA Chairman Rajiv Yasiru Kuruwitage said the association has drawn the attention of several media outlets which have reported that government registration is essential for social media site users, including Facebook.

"If the users are to registere with the government, we see it as a major blow to freedom of speech," he said.

He further pointed out that the government ministers should be careful when issuing such statements to the media.

    "He further pointed out that the government ministers should be careful when issuing such statements to the media." - infact -what can one expect from Sri lankan MPs with their Montessori qualifications who were elected by equally qualified Buffalos.

    Your point is valid and true but you are not the government and what you say or believe to be right is not what guides what the government does

    Well said Mr. RAJIV. Any moves to curb freedom of expression and free speech must be defeated. These dictators and low life rulers should be thrown away from parliament via next election. Democracy must prevail....
