Separatism Can Mean Beheading: Army Commander

Army Commander Daya Ratnayake issued a strong warning to groups with separatist agendas, saying the world had already seen how Sri Lanka answers separatism.

“As long as people are within a democratic framework we can all live happily. But if anyone becomes extremists or tries to divide the country, it is not the country that will be divided but their heads that will be severed from their bodies,” he said.

The Army Chief made these remarks while on a tour of the former conflict zones of the Wanni recently.
