    There is no issues with the law, the problem in the application of the law equally.

    No comments! Speechless. Hope country is heading in the right direction.

    Richard Vonhagt Wednesday, 27 October 2021 09:09 AM

    Simply put, there are no words to describe this travesty. This government is going from bad to worse to downright evil.

    Suren Sarathkumara Wednesday, 27 October 2021 09:10 AM

    More and more waste of money. Do you need a task force to tell you that people like Ratwatte should be arrested ?

    Ahamed Wednesday, 27 October 2021 09:13 AM

    For all those who believed the this monk was being controlled by anyone else other than the ruling clan. This is your watershed moment. Wake up. The final part of the play - that was introduced in 2011 and inflamed Aluthgama in 2014 and was responsible for various other ethnic racial incidents - is about to be enacted. As a final desperate measure to hold on to power!

    Joseph Wednesday, 27 October 2021 09:25 AM

    Why need a taskforce now. he came to power to implement one country one rule concept and should have a action plan in force. It just goes to show that he has failed in this as well . On the other hand the appointment of the Chairman speaks of the intent and the effectiveness of the taskforce

    All the other countries are advancing, opening borders. In Srilanka, they are closing borders and eventually we would become a new variant of veddhas.

    Please provide them facilities like office, vehicles, staff, media people, salaries, other maintenance and sundry expenses etc. Then gradually you can close down the parliament. !

    Bhatiya Siriwardena Wednesday, 27 October 2021 09:35 AM

    Without wasting time introduce one law principles like doing away with Muslim marriage law which allows them marrying underage girls, etc. There must be one law for all communities in every aspect. Then implement rule of law which is more important.

    In PTF there is no more place for tamils

    Ranjan Wednesday, 27 October 2021 10:05 AM

    Thank god these Intelligent Lankans need not waste their blooming time with these bunch of muts.

    sudath Wednesday, 27 October 2021 09:44 AM

    premediated outcome of this task force-those who decent will soon be submitting their resignations on "personal" and "health" grounds

    sundaralingam Wednesday, 27 October 2021 09:46 AM

    if the real purpose is one country one law, then there should be representation from all communities. Why no Tamils on this committee?

    concern Wednesday, 27 October 2021 12:00 PM

    Simply understood Communalism and racism. !

    Hornet Wednesday, 27 October 2021 09:46 AM

    Dilshan Wednesday, 27 October 2021 09:48 AM

    This looks like a deliberate move to destroy the country. The American is showing his true colors.

    joshua Wednesday, 27 October 2021 09:56 AM

    Next presidential task force to inquire in to Easter attacks to be headed by Zahran. What a bunch of jokers

    citizen Wednesday, 27 October 2021 10:01 AM

    Murderers are granted presedential pardoned, a constitutional lawyer is in jail, and a saffron robed racist thug is to head one law task force. I have no hope for this country.

    KM Rafeek Wednesday, 27 October 2021 11:38 AM

    This is one country and has one law ....... Buddhism/Hinduism/Christianism/Islamism

    Lankan Wednesday, 27 October 2021 11:52 AM

    The fox given the responsibility to guard the chicken coup. Oh! how stupid people we are? No decent or sincere human will except this non-sense and should protest and stay away from this so called commission or you might as well make Gnanasara the imam of the mosque. Jokers!

    Ashan Wednesday, 27 October 2021 11:52 AM

    Those days in Sri Lanka, we have parliamentarians making laws, but now that we have only 225 we need a presidential taskforce of non-elected acolytes.

    rasa thiyagan Wednesday, 27 October 2021 12:19 PM

    Mohamed Zafar Wednesday, 27 October 2021 12:22 PM

    Deliberately conducting such things to distract the public attention from ongoing outrage is one of the scheduled programs of the inefficient government. Still, No Fertilizer for Farmers, Sugar

    Ralaharamy Wednesday, 27 October 2021 06:41 PM

    This is to divert attention from burning issues in the country. This Govt. is very adapt at this trick. The goal is One country, no Law.

    Eper Wednesday, 27 October 2021 05:12 PM

    First of all the majority must concede that everyone living in Lanka are equals and not superior on race and creed.Why special place to Buddhism in constitution

    GHT Wednesday, 27 October 2021 08:50 PM

    Why no HIDUS included, is this fair deal you always boasted? It seems the discrimination

    Siva Thursday, 28 October 2021 04:27 AM

    Not a single Tamil appointed even a token one and the Gazette notification is only in Sinhalese and English. Tamil which is an official language on par with Sinhalese is glaringly omitted. Shows what is in store for the island's Tamils and Tamil speakers.

    Andrew Silva Thursday, 28 October 2021 04:41 AM

    Is the President out of his mind.

    Nallammah Kulanthaivelu Thursday, 28 October 2021 09:48 AM
