    this is something worst, we are democrates n we deserve rights to express, then why a person is treated in this way if they want to raise voice or wanna show up the truth, we just cannot accept this to happen with any of our media family nor with our nation peoples. Itz just like having official tigers (ltte) in house. This is gonna be worst if it is not stoped in the begining.
    ‘The internal terrors should be stoped.’
