Barbaric act, there’s no longer good, kind hearted people living in this country anymore. Like our politicians, our people are also probably the worst humans on this planet. There’s many more incidents like this that does not get reported.

Is this not the same type of sword used by Awa gang? Is Awa gang also a creation of the army?

Humans are no robots, they have complex emotions. When you train them to kill fellow human beings without any compunction, then do not expect their minds to easily accept compromises and forgiveness in civilian life. No government wants to talk about this truth.

It is a very sad news. my condolences to her family and friends. This murder should be condemned by all regardless of the race of the criminal. whether the criminal is a Tamil or Sinhalese or Muslim, should be punished. The investment into her education and into her life has gone in a day. She would have served to many people if she lived.
