Dear Ven. Thero, please do not let up on your opposition to destructive bigoted-minority communalist/religious politics in the country as clearly seen from the 21/4 horror, we cannot trust our elected leaders to safeguard us from such evil. While our politicos were falling over themselves, bending over backwards, to cozy up to such communalist/religious bigots to win their political support to be in power, you alone were sounding out alarm over the rapidly rising extremism of the Wahabi-jihadist groups such as the NTJ. Then, these corrupt politicos not only ignored you, but some even started personally attacking and maligning you – and on 21/4 we saw the result of these corrupt politicos’ wisdom and attitude!
