The United States Embassy in Colombo said today that it is concerned by the attack on Grandpass Mosque on August 10.

“This incident is particularly troubling in light of a number of recent attacks against the Muslim community in Sri Lanka. Targeting any place of worship should never be permitted and we urge calm from all sides. We call for prosecution of perpetrators in this attack and an end to religious-based violence. The right of all Sri Lankans to practice the religion of their choice should be protected,” the embassy said in a statement.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the US is fueling the ethnic tension behind the scene to start another civil war and create demand for their war machine! Best all of us down here get along whatever the religion because USA is only loyal to corporate America!

    Muslim diaspora is forming. China, Japan, Burma are more and more Islamophobic. The West woos Muslims despite world terror fight, paying for their sins, killing civilians!

    Lokka Sunday, 11 August 2013 03:44 PM

    How many forigin embassies in SL. Why only US concerned about internal matters of SL. Are these US embassy people from world police.

    Labby Sunday, 11 August 2013 11:29 AM

    DHA and Iranga, you should be ashamed of your comments. What is wrong in condemning attacks on places of religious worship, whatever the religion?

    Dinesh Sunday, 11 August 2013 11:30 AM

    It is not a place of worship....Just a building where radical extremism is being preached.....just like Afghanistan.

    Nothing to be concerned of.....

    radan Sunday, 11 August 2013 11:40 AM

    Seems like #DHA and Iranga being shameless citizen of this country in their comments. it is astonishing US concerned about the attack before our government do..

    Sim Sunday, 11 August 2013 11:46 AM
