Recall all Lankans from Pakistan unless Pakistan ensures their safety: Anura

The Sri Lankans living and working in Pakistan should be recalled unless the Pakistani Government is prepared to ensure their safety, JVP Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake said today.

He told a news conference that the Pakistani Government should give maximum punishment to those who were involved in the gruesome lynching of Priyanatha Kumara, who was brutally tortured, killed and burnt in Sialkot, Pakistan by a mob and guarantee the safety of other Sri Lankans living there.

The MP said the Sri Lankan Government should ensure that no Sri Lankan should be subject to such a barbaric murder.

He said the Sri Lankans had to face religious extremism in 2019 due to Easter Sunday attacks and added that the countrymen should no longer be victimised by religious extremism.

“It is seen that various religious extremists are raising their heads in Sri Lanka. The Sri Lankan Government and the citizens have an additional task to defeat and curb extremism,” he said.
