    Uneducated thinking...one black sheep and a whole community or religion is bad, developed countries get attacked and they go and hug the communities who are innocent and who detest terrorism just as they do, they don't go and mark everyone from that community bad..grow up

    Any threat should be seriously investigated. But this seems like a plot to start racism all over again.

    Mohamed Rizvi Sunday, 26 September 2021 12:16 PM

    This WhatsApp message circulating since more than two years. No one gave a damn to it. Why this sudden concern? your guess is good as mine..

    This looks like another Drama staged in continuation of the ones to sideline the April 2019 Easter disaster.

    Razik Mohamed Sunday, 26 September 2021 12:53 PM

    Another drama to divert attention from price increases.

    ANOTHER JOKE TO HIDE STUPID ACTIONS.

    Truth matter Sunday, 26 September 2021 01:14 PM

    Do not waste time and energy on this so called war on terror. It is a USA made Polly to trap all other small countries like us . It is utterly waste of time and resources for us to engage in this crafty Political manipulation to fool public to capture power . Karuma will haunt you. We people of East do not follow the crafty West. Your heart and it's consciousness is enough for you to judge the West . You do not need to have Holly books to judge them. They are corrupt and try to corrupt the world . Do not follow them on this . You will be looser sooner or later

    Our forces should find the culprits in that group chat and it’s members and arrest them on PTA

    Be sharp, wise, and careful. Looks to be a trap to be set themselves.

    Lankan Girl Monday, 27 September 2021 10:32 AM

    What nonsense, anyone is free to leave, mute or archive a whatsapp group if they are uninterested. Anyway, this story was circulating for a few years, but only NOW we pay attention? I smell a rat ;)
