Everyone knows, late Mr. Kadirgamar did yeomen service to the country. He was the best Foreign Minister so far we had. But since he was an ethnic minority, he was not honoured with PM's post. We like it or not, that is the real fact in our country. Unless other wise, we treat minorities equal and with respect not merely the lip service, our country will never be able to grow. One generation of us suffered due to the mistakes of our earlier leaders, and we don't want our future generations to suffer, because of our current leaders. My only hope right now is, God, and I prey for the betterment of my lovely country.

Late Kadirgamar was a true patriot and not like ones here.

Better to honour him by being like him, in behaviour and policies, instead of with plaques no one may notice in a few years and would fade away.

Where are Hon. Kadirgarmar's children? They should have been present.
