Ex-Sri Lankan cricketers took to Twitter on Wednesday to express their anger on the recent violence against Muslim minorities in Sri Lanka. Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardena strongly condemned the crisis in their country and asked for action to be taken against everyone involved. The situation in Sri Lanka is so dire that the country had to impose an emergency state for 10 days.
No one in Sri Lanka can be marginalized or threatened or harmed due to their ethnicity or religion. We are One Country and One people. Love, trust and acceptance should be our common mantra. No place for racism and violence. STOP. Stand together and stand strong.— Kumar Sangakkara (@KumarSanga2) March 7, 2018
I strongly condemn the recent acts of violence & everyone involved must be brought to justice regardless of race/ religion or ethnicity. I grew up in a civil war which lasted 25 years and don’t want the next generation to go through that.— Mahela Jayawardena (@MahelaJay) March 7, 2018
