Muslims are under attack in Sri Lanka. Recent reports indicate that gangs of Buddhists have been roaming the streets, administering bloody mob beatings and attacking places where Muslims work and worship. Raw pork has been thrown into mosques, the Halal logo has been banned and the prominent Muslim government critic Azad Sally has been arrested.

ဟုိတေလာကေလးတင္ တိ-ကုေအးေမာင္ကို ၾကံ့ဖြတ္အမတ္တစ္ဦးက လႊတ္ေတာ္ထဲမွာတင္ သင္းကြပ္လိုက္တာ ျမင္ရမွာပါ။
ဒီအခ်က္ေနၿပီးေတာ့ ၾကံ့ဖြတ္ပါတီကေနၿပီး ရခိုင္ျပည္မွာျဖစ္ပ်က္ခဲ့သမွ် အျပစ္အားလုံးကို ရခီးပါတီ RNDP ပါတီနဲ႔ တိ-ကုေအးေမာင္ရဲ႕ ေခါင္းေပၚကို ပုံခ်ေတာ့မယ္ဆိုတာ ကို ျပသလိုက္တာပါပဲ။

ေသေဖာ္ေသဖက္ ရွာေနတာပါ။ (more…)
