Latest #SriLankaBlast update:
-A lot of Twitter chatter about possible link to #NationalThowheethJamaath. Here's a story relaying the substance, next tweets provides some analysis.…
Argument in favor of #NationalThowheethJamaath culpability for #SriLankaBlasts:
-According to @AFP, #SriLanka police sent out a warning on April 11 that #NTJ was planning suicide attacks on churches. If report is accurate, suggests there's actual intel rather than just rumor.
Argument against ##NationalThowheethJamaath being (sole) culprit for #SriLankaAttacks:
-#NTJ has never conducted operations remotely like this: They've largely limited themselves to vandalism. Have not demonstrated anything like the organizational capacity for major ops.

Terrible events in #SriLanka. This is targeted killings.

We can certainly rule out #LTTE hand in this (whatever that's left) as it specifically targeted the Catholic churches and foreigners.

This looks like a hand of the Islamic outfits.

#SriLanka has been peaceful for a decade now. Is this now a sign of the entry of radical islamic outfits !?

Usually they do indulge in large scale attacks to announce themselves...

Hope not.

If it is indeed #Islamic terror, Srilanka must weed them out NOW.
Specific intelligence inputs received but not acted upon.

Coastal areas attacked.

Hotels hosting foreigners targeted.

Reminds me of 26/11 #Mumbai attacks.

Typical terror signatures should not be ignored.

Something ws afoot in SriLanka or so i felt when underwld drug Kingpin among others ws arrested in UAE in d month of February. Somebody really wants to destroy peace in Sri Lanka. #SriLankaBlast…
Sri Lankan Govt hd been cracking its whip on criminals, and ergo myriads of arrests wr made in last few months. This ws definitely not going down well with few.
I cn not pinpoint my finger at 1 org, but any1 keeping a track of situation in Sri Lanka since last few months, wld hv sensed some undr currents. 5 blasts r no joke! My condolences to families of victims. I was in SL jst last yr,n ws in awe of hw SL hd picked itself up,post LTTE.
