Bishop of Jaffna, Rt. Rev. Justin Gnanapragasam: The bomb blasts which were considered to be aimed at Catholics are meaningless. We strongly condemn these attacks. We kindly request relevant people to desist from playing with human lives for private political benefits.
Mawai Senathyrasa, Leader, Ilankai Tamil Arasuk Kadchi: These acts, which have been well orchestrated are acts against humanity. Are the Defence Sector and the Intelligence sector ignorant of the threat? The truth should be made known to the people. Government should declare emergency Law and safeguard people.
Justice C.V.Wigneswaran, former CM, NP: The terrorist attack on Easter Day had indicated several things. When racial and religious differences prevail in a country, the disputes that will rise will be manipulated by opportunists and alien forces for attaining their purposes. These incidents have indicated the need for majority people considering who their real friends are.
Suresh Premachandran, Leader, Eelam People’s Revolutionary Liberation Front: These inhuman and cruel attacks have been planned well before undertaking them. EPRLF view this as a blatant terrorist attack against Humanity. Whoever had done this, EPRLF strongly condemn this act.
