Mervyn Silva demands death sentence for Sialkot murderers

Former Minister Mervyn Silva has demanded the death sentence on the Sialkot murderers.

Silva told reporters that President Gotabaya Rajapaksa must ensure the men accused of murdering Priyantha Kumara are sentenced to death.

He said that Priyantha Kumara was killed in an inhumane manner and so the accused must be dealt with severely.

The former Minister said that Rajapaksa should ensure the Pakistani authorities do not drag the case.

He said that Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan should be told to inform the Sri Lankan President in 2-3 weeks that the death sentence has been confirmed on the accused.

Minister Mervyn Silva warned that if the President fails to secure a guarantee then the public may be forced to react.

He said the public have been very patient so far and that is commendable. (Colombo Gazette)



  1. China is dreaming a peaceful and successful world. This is a wishful thinking but cannot happen in a realistic world. Dominating the world and peaceful world are not the same meaning, these words are opposite in nature.

    If China try to change the South Asian radicals, the West and India will continue to fuel radicalism to turn against China in the name of religious freedom and democracy. China should not try to swim against the waves but swim with the waves. In other words, China should use these radicals against its opponents. The West wants disasters in China as Afghanistan and Pakistan. China doesn’t entertain radicals, this is worrying to the western powers. The western powers want freedom for radicals to keep the developing countries under them. The Americans are not sending their officials to winter Olympics Games in China due to human rights violations in China. Australia is also planning to join with the Americans to boycott winter Olympics Games in China. Clearly, a peaceful world is impossible. Therefore, China should not dream for a peaceful world but do everything to swim with the waves to dominate the world.

  2. Surely, death sentence will stop radicalism but the West will not allow it, in order to keep the disasters in the developing countries to continue to rule the world. Above all, the South Asian political leaders who use religious and language cards to keep their power will not implement death sentence to stop radicalism. In fact, radicals have been created systematically by the rulers and they would not eliminate radicalism.
