While saying that COVID-19's tragedy has taken too many lives in Sri Lanka, US Department of State urged the Government of Sri Lanka to respect & accommodate religious faiths & cultural traditions, in accordance with international public health guidelines, so that people can say farewell to their loved ones in ways consistent with their beliefs.

    Can the same comments be addressed to the Middle East before, during and after the pandemic?

    What the heck is wrong with these US guys. Do they allow this in US. There are mass burials. Go and check this in other countries. It is the same every where. Covid has taken too many lives in Sri Lanka ? I am confused, 300 in one year compared with 8000 a day in US . This is daylight lying.

    The US guys are going crazy. Dead bodies are bathed and wrapped in white before burial. Can a body with the virus be bathed? Isn't that a way of spreading thd virus among the people attending to dead bodies with virus. So how can culture and faiths be followed in a pandemic?

    The Sinhalese are low cast rascals who first need to identify their origins scientifically. That is the main reason for their insecurity and abhorring towards any other race, religion or culture.
