Kumara had gone to Pakistan in 2011 after he got a job as a mechanical engineer at an apparel factory in Faisalabad. After a year, he joined Sialkot’s Rajco Industries as its general manager and was the only Sri Lankan national working in the factory.

IMAGE: The Sri Lankan cabinet on Tuesday approved Sri Lankan Rs 2.5 million (about Rs 935,000) as compensation to Nilushi and her family.

IMAGE: Priyantha Kumara was brutally lynched before his body was set on fire. The murder by Islamic radicals has shocked the world.

IMAGE: The Sri Lankan parliament, President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa have condemned the brutal killing and expressed hope that Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s government would bring the guilty to justice.

IMAGE: Ruling and Opposition MPs in the Sri Lankan parliament have demanded an apology from Pakistan’s Defence Minister Pervez Khattak for his insensitive remarks on the lynching.
Khattak on Monday said the ghastly lynching by a mob in Sialkot should not be linked to the Pakistan government’s recent decision to lift the ban on the extremist Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakista, saying ‘murders take place’ when young people get emotional. Shocking!

    The innocent eyes of the bereaved says it all! The senseless, barbaric killing of an innocent man, for a puported crime not even understood by the victim says what is wrong with the society from which these monsters crawl out to mete out punishment on the unwary!

    Punishing the monsters will not change the ground that breeds these animals, for it has become endemic in the soil.
