    This is old news of ONE FAMILY with 32 members which included Women and children who went to Syria to join ISIS. This was announced by Def Sec Hettiarachchi in Jan this year. Min Wijeydasa made this announcement again in Parliament suspiciously, rousing communal hatred against Muslims during this period, completely ignoring the continued Threats of a bloodbath by gnanasara and his racist ilk.

    Anyone can claim that some Sri Lankans have joined ISIS if they don’t have to provide facts to the people support their argument. However, minister may intend to justify the new anti-terrorism law by claiming this unproven evidence. The government is trying to get an excuse to have new anti-terrorism law when there is no need for the law since there is no threat. There are many questions arise from this statement. Why did the minister not provide details about the individual who joined ISIS?
