    And the ministers are talking about pardoning someone who disrespect the rule of the law. Oh my country?

    What the majority community say about the minority is grossly ulawful. However a blind eye and a deaf ear is given in such cases. We have so much of problem in this country. The ethnic problem has not been solved. There is no greater autonomy to the north and east. The reconciliation is in square one and it's not proceeding. The political prisoners have not been taken to courts. We are dancing and making a mountain out of a mole. This is the problem in SL. At this rate we will never ever improve.Wasting time and money over a talk which people in North and East speak silently. She spoke publickly .
