    PM can be proud of the Yahapalanaya he has brought about. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of this violence.

    They need to be repaid by the state and the state collect mony from the culprits.

    ice Tuesday, 14 May 2019 05:12 PM

    This is very sad situation. This must not happen at all.

    Dee Tuesday, 14 May 2019 05:15 PM

    I think the government needs to give full funding to renovate these damaged buildings. That should teach a lesson to those who barely survive the day and just goes rioting!

    The assets of the culprits must be seized to compensate these victims.

    Jim kuru Tuesday, 14 May 2019 05:43 PM

    Who ever responsible should give maximum punishment.

    Concerned citizen Tuesday, 14 May 2019 06:30 PM

    This is absolutely saddening.Those involved in acts of violence and racist behaviour should be brought before the law. Civil society must rise up!

    Amara Tuesday, 14 May 2019 06:42 PM

    Disgusting! Same thing happened in 1983. LTTE set off a landmine in the north and monsters started killing Tamils in Colombo. Sri Lanka has not learnt anything. The one thing in common is that, the UNP was in power on both occasions.

    IVJ Tuesday, 14 May 2019 06:46 PM

    How come our president is always away when these bad things happen ?

    RP Tuesday, 14 May 2019 07:11 PM

    The innocent people’s dwellings and businesses were torched or damaged in the name of what?, Revenge? There is no difference between these criminals and the Easter bombers! The State must act to protect all Sri Lankan’s and compensate these innocent victims.
