COLOMBO News 1st: When the victims of the 21/04 terror attack still mourn over their loved ones, it is quite questionable if the public representatives are sensitive enough to understand the pain of the general public. This is felt quite strongly due to certain statements made by them with reference to the attack. One classic example would be the statements made to justify the continuous discovery of swords during search operations.

Speaking on the matter, UPFA MP Mahinda Amaraweera questioned as to why a single Muslim MP has not come forward in voicing their objections against the many swords discovered from mosques and the reason behind keeping them.

UPFA MP Thenuka Vidanagamage said that with around 5.2 million houses in the country that if a sword is found from each house that it will amount up to a total of 5.2 million swords. He added that if it is justified that a house with one child should have a sword that families with three children would request a pistol for protection.

Meanwhile convening a media briefing Ven. Omalpe Sobhitha Thero said that it is normal for a nation who is afraid of the recent terror attacks to contemplate on the accuracy of the statements made by the Muslim leaders. He continued to say that the statements made on swords being kept at homes to protect women or to cut shrubs are complete lies because it is discovered in hundreds everywhere.

Sobhitha Thero questioned if it is not the government that is humiliated by these kinds of statements. He noted that the Muslim leaders should accept the truth and confess to the entire nation on the real reasons behind these discoveries and eliminate the misunderstandings. He added that Muslim leaders should stop humiliating the entire country by making such statements.
