On social media Just hours earlier some of the hard core baiyyas and secret baiyyas were cheering the beating of journalists and then later they are outraged about a house burning down 🙄

They would love nothing more than the focus being on this damn house.

When people are pushed to the edge, and when leaders have to be thrown out for ignoring the will of the people & playing games with their lives, you will always have acts of spontaneous anger, IF that's what it was

No one condones it. A rich man will rebuild his house.

Move on
If we all agree that what happened is nothing short of a revolution, then destruction of property is part and parcel of that, right of revolution.

They can rebuild and repaint. Those places were used to safeguard people who destroyed lives and livelihoods.

Revolution is also a cleansing... I hope they are converted into libraries and museums for the people.

Because they are clearly not fit to protect the leaders.

Since we are measuring the value of things, what's the value of the lives lost to the Easter bombings? What's the value of lives taken and livelihoods destroyed due to the economic crisis?

What's the value of your time spent in endless queues? What's the value of the loss of education for our children and what's the value of the price we pay daily for corruption, nepotism and cronyism?

Powerful people play games, ignore the will of the people, lie and obfuscate, mislead and expect no consequences. Eventually when you batter and beat people up and stretch them to breaking point there will be a reaction, it was inevitable.

No one, absolutely no one asked Ranil to jump in and try save the Rajapaksas and accept the PM position.

Gota was hanging on despite plunging this country into a catastrophic economic crisis. Both have no shame, no guilt no empathy.

If they listened to the will of the people, which they were denying, none of this would be nessesary.

They have to be literally dragged out and chased away with no dignity at all.

That's how greedy and power hungry they are.

Ranil can rebuild that house. Can you bring back the 15 dead people from fuel queues back to their families or the mother and son that committed suicide?

It never should have come to this. They should have respected the will of the people bit its deals and games with them.
