Certain groups in the country who want to steer the reconciliation process on a different course are trying to blow the incidents in Aluthgama out of proportion to give a wrong impression to the world, Defence Ministry spokesman Brigadier Ruwan Wanigasooriya said.

He said a newspaper published in Jaffna had reported that seven died and over 80 persons were injured in a clash in Aluthgama.

The Brigadier said a foreign media organisation reported that several churches had come under attack during the Aluthgama incidents.

“Not a single church was damaged in the clashes in Aluthgama,” Brigadier Wanigasooriya said.

The Defence Ministry said the country’s common enemy is not found within the country but this threat emanates from abroad, particularly in the form of challenges faced by Sri Lanka in the aftermath of ending terrorism.

He said officials of Human Rights Watch (HRW) weeping about human rights violations in Sri Lanka cannot file even a single case over what it calls violations that took place in Sri Lanka. The spokesman added that HRW officials do not have even a shred of evidence to prove what they allege to have taken place in Sri Lanka.

“Officials of this organisation which turn a blind eye to the serious violations of human rights in Iraq and Afghanistan are talking about violations in Sri Lanka.”

BrigadierWanigasooriya said the activities of a handful of persons driven by various ideologies are detrimental to the bondage between the people of different ethnicities.

The Defence Ministry spokesman said these elements which came into existence after terrorism was eradicated, are engaged in various activities making use of the peaceful environment in the country and these activities cannot be accepted under any circumstance.

He said Sri Lanka eradicated terrorism to ensure a peaceful environment for the people of all communities.

BrigadierWanigasooriya said the current situation in Aluthgama and Beruwala is relatively peaceful and no incident was reported for the last two days.

He said the Police can seek the Security Forces’ assistance at any given time under the Public Security Ordinance.

The spokesman said Security Forces were deployed in the Aluthgama and Beruwala areas from Monday morning on the request of the Police and no incident except a few arguments between two groups of people from the area were reported.

He said the ethnic and religious diversity in the country is something that every Sri Lankan should be proud of.

“This diversity among various ethnic groups and religions should be protected and celebrated,” he said. A small unit of Army personnel was deployed on the Galle road from Beruwala to Aluthgama purely to ensure the smooth traffic flow after the curfew was imposed, he said.

BrigadierWanigasooriya said no Army personnel were deployed to villages or the places where incidents were reported until Tuesday morning.

The Defence Ministry spokesman said maintaining peace, law and order of the country is the prime duty of the Police and the Security Forces can assist them on request.

    So Jaffna is “abroad”?

    The statement is WRONG.

    JAFFNA is part of the common enemy. Uthayan newspaper said so which is the MOST POPULAR newspaper in Jaffna.

    Also SLMC is feeding ANTI SL news to foreigners. SLMC is part of the common enemy.

    BAN TNA, SLMC and BBS now if GOSL wants lasting peace.

    These Sinhalese are very very bad people to riot against these very very nice people.
    Look what these mossies done to our country and still riot against them?
    1 Relentless breeding
    2 bulldozing our heritage to ground and settle new mossie breeding output
    3 taking over town after town
    4 putting up eyesore mosques every street corner to drive out Sinhalese from areas
    5 then loudspeakers to drive out Sinhaese from the area
    6 giving sterile agents-laced sweets to Sinhalese youth
    7 giving away wild life sanctuary areas to new mossie breeding output
    8 destroying ancient temples (Kuragala etc.)
    9 drugs trade
    9 introduction of halal through back door
    10 buying more and more land at higher than market price so that one
    one day Sinhalese (hateful Tamils, whose ancestors used mythical bricks to build their
    ancient kingdoms in the north and east) will be homeless
    11 knowing very well what the mossies done to old agganisthan, pakesthan, iran,
    bangladesh, maldives, indonesia, malaysia carrying out same agenda in Sri Lanka
    (all these countries used to be Buddhists, thanks to mossie relentless breeding they
    all gone in few hundred years)
    12 traitors like hakim, rishard, etc promoting this xxxxlam like (there are no words to explain these xxxx)
    13 stomach turning burka dress
    14 relentless breeding and get mayors, mps, ministers, dep. ministers etc etc and control
    the government

    The list goes on. Still expect special treatment. Nobody should be surprised. That is what xxxxlam teach
    them. Dark religion for dark ages. Everywhere they went hell follows. Sri Lanka is no exception.
    Iraq, afganisthan, iran, nigeria, somalia, saudi arabia, iraq, libiya etc. etc.
    Still these xxxx don’t see what this mad religion do to them and to the countries they taken over by breeding.
