    Sorry Mam, most Sri lankans have no idea about human rights. We have been happy to be docile servants of ruling clans.

    Britain while criticising Sri Lanka, is stealing our ideas to fight the covid-19 which has devastated the country. British move to utilise its military and the current plan to quarantine visitors in hotels are all Sri Lankan ideas. But the British would never acknowledge to copying us.

    Most of us do not like other countries to dictate to us. The country is being militarised and we may need their help if a Military rule is established

    The SL Govt. wants to hide the economy issues which are being faced. So they start making problems between RELIGION. People will be busy arguing about this RELIGION issue rather than looking at the economy. RIP ECONOMY

    @ gayan, living in Britain- both of you are talking nonsense. Today if Britain opens it's borders for visa free entry you both will be fighting to be at the top of the queue.

    The UK too violates human rights, but not of their own citizens.

    Jeeves Monday, 25 January 2021 05:23 PM

    Windrush scandal? Forced repatriation of Caribbean people? Did they not have rights?

    Reply to Ex-British visitor- Want to bet? Some of us prefer our own country, even though we have the choice!

    When there are documented video evidence out its better for SL to establish its own Truth and Reconciliation commission than beating the chest and failing with sanctions.

    Dilshan Monday, 25 January 2021 05:43 PM

    We too have concerns. British Muslim school girls in Syria- stripped of their British citizenship for joining ISIS. Is that legal under international law? Do they not have rights Ms Hulton?

    Sri lanka, pariah state. British good people.
