Two years after enduring Buddhist violence, Muslims suffer but forgive !

Buddhist radicals looted and torched homes in three towns in south-western Sri Lanka. Survivors still live in fear, remembering the violence: a car dealer who lost everything, a grocer who lost his shop, a young man who lost his leg.

Muslims who survived a vicious attack from Buddhist radicals two years ago are still reeling from the pain they suffered.

"We never saw so much violence,” some of them told AsiaNews. “Not only did they attack in plain daylight, but they did it in front of the police, who stood by as people were threatened, wounded and killed. The pain will never go away, and what was broken cannot be put back together.”
