Demon scene from Mulkirigala, tho I think these demons are actually women.
As Delhi fumes over the rape and now murder of ‘India’s Daughter’, Sri Lankans may feel like we’re somehow better off. However, India has the 6 suspects under arrest. Last year, around this time, a British national was brutally killed at a resort in Tangalle and his girlfriend beaten. It wasn’t rape, but it was egregious violence, in this case against tourists, and a year later the suspects are out on bail and reinstated to the ruling political party.
The Tangalle killing was brutal and animal, tourists shot and stabbed in a hotel, by a ruling party politician – Sampath Chandrapushpa Vidanapathirana – and his thugs. And now they’re out, with no sign that justice will ever be done. As Sri Lanka welcomes its millionth tourist, we should remember that just last year a couple was murdered poolside and nothing was done.
Kumbhakarna discussed this issue in the Daily Mirror. It’s worth a read.
