It is just NOT cricket.
Sri Lanka, contrary to what the misguided, delusional Buddhist fundamentalists might claim, is still a multicultural, multireligious country with even a Catholic cardinal.
Sri Lanka has always celebrated Christmas. Acting like uncivilized heathens is so unbecoming.
They deserved to be thrashed in every sense of the word for this affront to the norms.
The President should be ashamed, groveling to the cardinal and pope one minute, then permitting this. Am I glad I am not Sri Lankan (other than by the accident of birth).
