    If one goes out in Colombo, supermarkets are open. So are hardware shops etc. This is a joke.

    They are testing the Gov. response to thier action. It would have been politically correct for the Gov. to look other way. Unfortunatly that's not the case!

    Gota promised many things when addressing the UN, but what is happening in his country is totally different. One tongue two messages.

    They need to be made to disappear without a trace

    This got nothing to do with quarantine. This is silencing democracy in Sri Lanka.

    Nothing wrong with those two MPs. Police officers were behaving violently against the elected Tamil parliamentarians against their prayers. God save the Tamils!

    For Sinhalese there is one law.. for minority Tamils and Muslims, there is another law.. what a country..

    You cannot make these observances disappear without trace. That will be day dream. This is where Sri Lankan governments are quite immature. Grow up.

    Srilanka will most probably loose the GSP plus

    One country several Laws. One law to Politicians, One law to affluent, One law to the public and one law to our Tamil brothers
