Quotes

...each other, suicide and car bombings in and around mosques and holy places, taking the high ground to behead foreigners after a ruling in their ` "kangaroo’ courts. Why don’t Muslims realise that Islam means peace and Jihad factually, as explained by Hadith Shahs Bukhari means struggling or striving in the way or sake of Allah . But terrorists have taken the concept of jihad and twisted it into something ugly and indefinable in furtherance of their own hatred for others. After living in the safe haven in peace and safety some refugees have been deceived into giving up refugee status to return and join the terrorists or be their spies. A recent web stated that a Muslim lady, refugee in Canada renounced her status to go back to marry a terrorist leader of the ISIS. It is compassionate to feel for those back home suffering from fanatics who ravage the country but deciding to join the fray is pure hypocrisy."
"The weather in the BayBay of Bengal is expected to return to normal within the coming two days and they can embark on their return journey then" DG Hettiarachchi told the Sunday Observer
"As the company which is produced premium electrical and communication cables under the theme of 'Wayar nam Kelani,' this time we selected Jaffna and Vavuniya for Kelani Visura workshops for a valid reason. Presently construction work is being done at great momentum in these areas. Thus the electrical technicians who involve in these projects need to have a competitive knowledge of the subject. Kelani Visura gears them perfectly to face this challenge by inducing them with worldclass knowledge. Kelani Visura's popularity among the novices and electricians throughout the island is a value addition to this generous CSR program of Kelani Cables " said Jayasinghe
"It was clear that the people I was meeting were having follow-up visits or phone calls, asking what I had done and said" she said in her blog
