Madam Ambassador you are blatantly interfering in the internal affairs of Sri Lanka – this is not at all surprising because your country interferes throughout the world and sadly thinks it is your duty to interfere in other peoples affairs against their wishes. You are losing your moral authority over the globe !! Please note this is not a religious matter – the Muslim terrorists who were “bomb cremated” apparently have a “quick track to heaven” Besides, Ambassador, cremation is the most scientific and sensible method of disposal of dead bodies, particularly, in a small land mass country like Sri Lanka.
