    We should get an assurance that the Pakistani rape of minority Christian girls will be criminalised and a clear sanction on the Koran ordained preying by Pakistanis on little English girls

    Burial rite is based on the beliefs of the people to calm their grief ...and now will heal their minds ...Rape is different .the weapon of the predator .and may be other non Christian innocents too were subjected to in Pakistan and elsewhere .and are silent .

    Good move. Each community should be given their due respect other community. If some one not doing it doe not mean we should not do. Cheers

    Why all this drama? Why couldn't the govt allow it from the beginning? Why stop the burials in the first place?

    Don't know he borrowed money from this poor man... Who knows and dancing to his tune. We are scared of even small mosquito.

    Govinda Thursday, 11 February 2021 05:07 AM

    The assurance is not valid until and unless the official gazette notification is issued. This is only a statement like he the Hon PM said in Dec 2020. Find a dry land to bury the Covid 19 victims.

    Ofcourse, our Government is fooling you also. Don't get caught to Sri Lanka's dirty politics and their dirty politicians.
