Sporting icons condemn extremism, violence

The sports fraternity has made a profound appeal that extremism in whatever form should be rooted out from the country while noting that the 30 year old civil war was the outcome of Black July 1983 and the very war was born out of the communal elements of terror. Kumar Sangakkara: “Pause a little and think deeply before you open your eyes. If terror, racism, hatred and thuggery conquer, the country is lost to us all. As Sri Lankans we need to unite together in protecting our next door neighbour to the exclusion of narrow political agendas.”
