    What is most significant about the cartoon is the expression on Gota’s face.
    .
    He appears to be indulging in this mischief because he sees no other activity that makes sense.

      Sending ethnic violence to north east is like sending coal to Newcastle!!

      Tamils supported Muslims burial demand and held P2P. What is the problem now?

      Summathiran must be his money where his mouth is.

      You have a point there.
      But many wouldn’t even notice.
      Quite a few would even not get the message correctly.

        “But many wouldn’t even notice.”
        Your are not just hypocrite and vile, but boring too man. You are shamefully unfit to be in a public site where all opinions are treated as equal in value. Don’t keep just passing dump standardization judgements. One showing their award dumbness so openly is so awfully annoying.

              Don’t mention.
              It will be a pleasure to see you located in a place befitting your wit.

                ” Don’t mention. Appreciable Paramilitary extraordinary manners. Thank you again for that!

                “It will be a pleasure to see you located in a place befitting your wit” So why ailing forcing to complain? what is ailing to you, here? Is that the reason of the pain on raw face, which’s mask peeled by wits, where the open fresh air is hitting? Or is cannot be (peeled)? Is that the wit the professor found out Chiv is dumb of learning? Is that your decision to dump Chiv in but promote me? That wouldn’t be partiality? So, it was the professors job at UOJ, teaching wits and sending candidates with certificate to proper places? Pnnadai!

          But didn’t Tamils in the north (P2P) beg for Muslim burials? Now they got it.

          Be careful of what you beg for!

        A man who’d better be a match to be a hang man is made president of the country by 6.9 millions of donkeys. As of today what has been achieved for the benefit of the masses? Even pupils would say it is 90% worst today😉😉😉😉😉😉😉😉😉😉😉😉😉😉😉😉😉😉

    This cartoon is ambiguous: Ethnic violence intended, agreed but by who against whom? I see North East the target. Tamils versus Muslims? Those days are long past. Historically ethnic violence is by the Sinhalese against Tamils mostly, but against Muslims also in the recent years.

      T
      The aim of GR (in the cartoonist’s view) is to stir Tamil-Muslim conflict in the hope that Tamils will object to Muslim burials there.

      Where do you find an ambiguity?

          Thiru : “Tamils versus Muslims. Those days are long past”. Do not be sure about it. Moment government published gazette notification allowing burials, Athaulla from east said at the meeting of heads of political parties, it Muslims are given jobs and benefits of development, there is no need for provincial council. If Muslims get their demands, they will somersault and abandon Tamils to fend for themselves. Let us see whether Muslims agree for the fair request of Tamils to upgrade Kalmunai north pradesiya sabha.

      Tamils must not reject Muslim coffins now. They supported it under P2P recently. What changed?

    Government doesn’t feel shame of any criticism. This morning News says government is going ahead with this divide and rule techniques. Mannar is the place where Rishard flew on Navy heli and oversaw the attack on the Court because a Christian judge placed a injunction on outside Muslims fishermen fishing in locals shores. Old Royals used that as a leash on Rishard, but Mannar people didn’t receive justice on that. So the Christians’ wound is still open. This type of poisoning can easily penetrate through those wounds. Government used Rapist Army and STF to cremate a Southern Bald Head in Muthaveli. Same way Gnanam went and buried a Bald Head’s body in Vedukunari temple ground.
