I would like to express my deep concern over the violence which took place in Colombo and other parts of the island on Monday 09, May 2022. A violent mob attacked the peaceful protesters using sticks and poles and such attacks are unacceptable.

As I mentioned earlier, every person has the right to protest. People should express their grievances in a peaceful manner without causing any damage to public property during protests. The police could have prevented the damage caused to the public properties and the violence.

A proper investigation should be conducted without undue delay and those responsible for the violence should be severely punished. The Law Enforcement Officers should ensure that such incidents do not occur in the future.

I would like to convey my deepest sympathies to the families who have lost their loved ones due to the violence and I also wish a speedy recovery to the injured people.

The Government should take all necessary steps to restore peace and normalcy in the country.

Sri Lanka will rise up through the ashes once again and therefore please remain united and strong.

God bless you all,
God bless Sri Lanka!
