“Pluralism is a fact and now we have to deal with it and try to find solution. It starts with our mind, our intellect, and our way of understanding and putting things and its quiet challenging.  When we speak about pluralism, we should be at the same time rooted in our tradition and open to the other traditions.”  Philosopher Tariq Ramadan, at 18th annual commemorative lecture of the late Speaker of the Parliament of Sri Lanka M.A Bakeer Markar, 21st September 2015.

We Need a War in Sri Lanka

No country in the World is having finite resources to serve its people. But a responsible government of a country can make use of local and global resources to fulfill the basic needs of the citizens and provide at least to have an average life.

I am trying to understand from the politicians of all parties in Sri Lanka (including those who had some academic background in their past and who are representing and building arguments and critics in favor of the political party or government they represent for and bubbling of objectivity on criticism by others), whether they have a vision and goal for the country in terms of socio-economic development by providing solution to basic national questions that lead to war.
