As reports of conflict from certain areas materialize, our appeal to the general public is to remain calm and stand united.
The police and security forces are carrying out a heroic effort to maintain law and order as seen by their daily successes, and it is every citizen’s duty to help and support them at this grave time.
Sri Lanka and Sri Lankans have agonized for years as a result of the manufactured violence rooted in narrow, self-serving political interests.
Let’s unite as one nation and stand against these efforts to create panic, chaos, and unrest.
We are the confidence we are looking for. We have only ourselves to depend on. We have only one nation, Sri Lanka to call our own.
