This is a terrible turn of events for Sri Lanka. They have been largely spared the Islamic terrorist scourge and by and large any anti Christian sentiment has come from the more radical end of Sinhalese Buddhists than muslims. In the end it only takes a very small minority to change things. It is a massive hit to an economy that was beginning to recover through tourism and other investment after years of civil war.LeeToRainesToRoach said:Apparently it's the third most religious country in the world - 70% Buddhist, 13% Hindu, 10% Muslim and 7% Christian. It seems compulsory to have a team.
I used to go to Sri Lanka for work years ago and I found them wonderfully welcoming people but in those days there was always the undercurrent of danger. Looks like it is back again in a different guise which is a great tragedy.
