All Sri Lankans should be ashamed of all politicians who try to create unwanted issues, TNA MP S Rasamanickam told Parliament over the weekend.

Mr. Rasamanickam said unwanted issues are created by not allowing the Muslims to conduct last rites who succumb to Covid-19.“muslims are only asking for the right to conduct the last rites of their dead. They go to courts to win their rights,” he said.

“I am also ashamed of those Muslim MPS who voted for the 20th Amendment,” he added.

“You don’t allow the Tamils to celebrate their festival of lights. They are accusing the Tamils of honouring the LTTE Leaders. My mother has the right to hold a memorial service for me if I die. She has the right to commemorate me even if

I am a murderer. I feel sorry for the Sinhalese as they are badly misled,” he also said.

Minister of Tourism Prasanna Ranatunga who responded said Tamil MPS should remember that Sri Lanka had gone backwards because of LTTE.

“Some wants to commemorate Prabhakaran who destroyed the nation. Others may want to commemorate Zahran who led the Easter Sunday attacks if we allow the commemoration of LTTE Leaders,” the Minister said. (YOHAN PERERA AND AJITH SIRIWARDANA)

    okay, but commemoration of JVP's former leader murderer terrorist Wijeweera is cool.

    Thank you Rasamanckam but keep in your mind also that you are also in the same list.

    M.M.M.Izzeth Monday, 07 December 2020 07:22 AM

    We will never celebrate Zaheran.no one in this Country will.

    Steve Monday, 07 December 2020 08:06 AM

    The point of the last sentence has to be well taken. The bombings were similar.

    Without shedding crocodile tears for Muslims who were driven out the TNA should take them back to Jaffna.

    The Minister Rasamanikam,s speech in the parliament saying all Sri Lankans should a shame of the ministers in our parliament is absolutely correct most ministers uneducated. Minister Ranathunga commented that our Sri Lanka is backward cause of the Tamils no you are wrong

    Everyone has the right to practice his religion in the country but nobody shall break the law of the country without exception.....No religion shall govern the country.....

    Booruwa Monday, 07 December 2020 08:31 AM

    Prasanna Ranatunga along with most in SLPP are racists pretending to save the Sinhalese, but they’re sending our country backwards.

    sunil Monday, 07 December 2020 08:36 AM

    why no one is talking of the JVP commemorating Rohan Wijeyaweera's death There are auto still with Che Guevara's stickers

    denzil Monday, 07 December 2020 08:37 AM

    this shameful act will continue because it endears the pliticos to the vote bank

    RP Monday, 07 December 2020 08:50 AM

    Completely agree with the TNA MP but disagree with Prasanna ranatunge. The Politicians ruined this country since the Independance and still continuing that activity!

    Victor Fernando Monday, 07 December 2020 08:52 AM

    calling for a new comment looks as if its a bluff. I made a comment on Rasamanikams speech in the parliament about one hour not published

    Sandy Monday, 07 December 2020 08:52 AM

    TNA is the most unwanted thing on the island ,and they create unwanted issues

    VJ Monday, 07 December 2020 09:09 AM

    Poor leadership, racial and religious politics since independence which is still continuing is the cause of the destruction on this country.

    James Fedrick Monday, 07 December 2020 09:29 AM

    Yes, we saw you in the Parliament like a Tiger. Are you a Tiger?

    Jude Monday, 07 December 2020 09:42 AM

    I watched TNA MP's speech on the internet and I find he gotta compelling case!!

    S. Perumal [from Hatton] Monday, 07 December 2020 09:45 AM

    Hay, you guys always talk about North and East Tamils not about Up-country Tamils. We trust on our Hon. President

    FF Monday, 07 December 2020 09:48 AM

    CANNOT UNDERSTAND WHY SOME EXTREMIST POLITICIANS CREATE UNWANTED PROBLEMS TO THE MINORITIES FORGETTING THAT THEY ARE ALL SRI LANKANS. THEY ARE NOT IN FAVOR TO GROUP/BIND ALL PEOPLE FOR THE PROGRESS AND WELL BEING OF THE COUNTRY

    Sinhala A1 Monday, 07 December 2020 09:50 AM

    Prasanna ! Sri Lanka has gone backward mainly because Sri Lankan Sinhalese voted to people of your caliber since 1948 and let them ruin the country.

    Nanayak Monday, 07 December 2020 09:58 AM

    KEEP IT UP. VERY NICE SPEECH. WELL EDUCATED CIVILIZED. THREE VERY GOOD LANGUAGE. DECENT AND POLITE SPEECH. OUT OF 220 mp. One real one. NO MODAYAA NO KUDUKARAYAA SPEECH. WELL DONE

    Jude Monday, 07 December 2020 10:00 AM

    In future, just totally ignore November 26th commemorations!! Hey media DON'T give any publicity!! DON'T MAKE it important!! 'Coz under no circumstances it cannot be banned totally!! ALWAYS there'll be bunch of people who want to hold the memoriam !!

    Sunil Monday, 07 December 2020 01:39 PM

    I think our people must get better relevant education with critical thinking skills to better understand issues and also follow health guidelines. I can see lot of people venturing out of their home for non essential activity.

    Uthayaraj Reddiar Monday, 07 December 2020 03:25 PM

    There are few politicians who never try rendering the issue. The readymade boldness and arrogance that imerge from fake suprimacy and majority, overshadows human ethics and the truth of 'all is equal', is forgotten!

    Chrishantha Perera Tuesday, 08 December 2020 07:05 AM

    Excellent way to communicate in the parliament and hope one day you get the chance to execute in action on what you speak
