  1. An opportunity for the former President to strike a deal with Muslims to find a peaceful solution and also an opportunity to increase the vote bank to win the next election. I hope he has used the opportunity very well. If he hasn’t it is not too late to invite them again for a successful meeting.

  2. Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa should separate the Muslim leaders from the radicalism. Be tough on radicalism but respect the Muslim leaders. Deal with the radicalism diligently to defeat the foreigners who pulls the strings on Muslims to achieve foreign interests. The foreigners are using Muslims as they have used Tamils. Don’t hate Tamils or Muslims, but deal with them diligently to defeat the foreign power.
