    1. There is no terrorism. Attacking Indian invading troops who occupy Kashmir and committing horrendous war crimes is not terrorism. It is their freedom fight.

    2. There is nothing called J&K, etc. It is Indian Occupied Kashmir.

    Anyway Sri Lanka as a nation must have stayed out of this. But already too late. Unfortunately Sri Lanka’s ruling clans have shamelessly taken India’s side! Pakistan and China will recognize Sri Lanka as an Indian stooge and act accordingly.
