    please note all those returnees claimed refuge in the UK complaining they have tortured by the security forces in sri lanka. that is the only reason they can give to UK authorities. what made those muslims to claim refuge ? money..........ha.

    Do we need to mentioned the Religion here

    And also, 4 Singalese in the last. So it is very clear media's in Sri Lanka. Always try to show any muslim wrong doers by religion if it is Sinhalese it purposely try to hide the religion.

    Christians never noted by religion ever, not only in Sri lanka all over the world.

    these are economic migrant or disenchanted citizens.

    These are the people who painted a bad (& wrong) image of SL. They must be fined and money chanelled to welfare of the poor including Tamil community.
