Kumar Sangakkara on anti-Muslim riots in Sri Lanka

Kumar Sangakkara Mar 7 2018

This is Kumar Sangakkara, a world-renowned Sri Lankan cricket player, speaking out against the anti-Muslim riots going on in Sri Lanka. Apparently standing with the persecuted & oppressed is a family heritage since his parents hid Tamil families during pogroms that began against them in 1983. Regrettably, I haven’t followed the complexities of the Sri Lankan struggle as closely as it deserves & will have to correct that.

One often sees photos of Sri Lankans in solidarity with Kashmiris so it is fitting that I found this video on a FB wall by Kashmiri activists.
