    Your Eastern Coast areas are flaring up. However, Eastern coast in not in proximity of Tamil Nadu / Kerala. So direct connectivity between Batticaloa and Tamil Nadu coast is little difficult. Smuggling through Jaffna and then land route is a high possibility. But the drug route seems to be Western Coast on to Colombo.

    That will be required to be shut down to cut / block funding the terrorist activities besides the Arabs sources.
    It is not very strange to once again see vulnerability of Sri Lanka to small / big foreign funded terrorist organisations who can be hired as mercenaries to destabilize the government and civil society..

    It did cross my mind. So, I'll speculate here.

    China is undertaking a large scale infrastructure projects in Pakistan and Sri Lanka. In Sri Lanka's Hambantota Port it hopes to create arrival to Dubai/Hong Kong port.

    These developments might take away trade from the Gulf states, especially business in Dubai and the Saudi Arabia's deep-water ports and might seriously effect the long-term post-oil strategy of the Gulf Arabs.

    Saudi Arabia is heading off this challenge by joining in the project - investing billions in Pakistan .I ,also , see talk of proposed big Qatari investments in Sri Lanka.

    These act of terrorism might be a warning to the Sri Lankans not to cut out the Gulf Arabs from the lucrative projects in Sri Lanka. The threat of course is a low level Muslim insurgency in Sri Lanka ,with Chinese investments going south and China pulling out of Sri Lanka.

    Of course ,behind the Gulf States is America. It wants to reduce Chinese influence in the region and has form ,over decades, for secretly supporting Islamist irregulars to achieve its aims.

    A reduction of Chinese power in the region would also be supported by India,of course. Still it's difficult to see how India might be involved in this atrocity in Sri Lanka It is not a coherent policy for India to use fanatic Islamists to further tis own strategic aims ,given its own vast Muslim population and a long-running Muslim insurgency in Kashmir. Besides,I doubt that the Indian intelligence agency, RAW , has the contacts or capability to put such an operation into action.

    And Librandu BCs were dissing Modi for speaking out it in a rally. Glad he was prompt and took the issue to the public.

    Sri Lankan treachery is well known. There might have been a favourable regime but the anti-India deep state is always at work. Not to mention their overconfident ordinary joes who lick Pakistani and Chinese ass at every rant thrown at India would have lead to such contempt.

    Let them suck up to Chinis and porkies and enjoy more such attacks. The way I see it, this country will soon devolve into another civil war, this time between two religions.

    What is evident from the attacks is that it takes a few extremist radicals to cause great destruction. A similar outgrowth of Is inspired groups in north kerala (and in dakshina cannara region of karnataka) has been common knowledge for some time. It's welcome news that NIA has busted one such group, but there may be more and they could be waiting for an opportunity (or occasion). Hope central and state agencies are on top of things.

    Not related to Sri Lanka, but Muslim brotherhood has been listed as a terrorist organization in the US.

    When you receive a very specific intelligence input on possible attack, most security agencies in any country, would have raided their known locations or picked up the individuals for questioning. Sri Lanka is not a new kid on security matters. Over the last few decades, thanks to the civil war, they have well established security procedures on Intel based operations. Somebody deliberately conspired to not act on the Intel and the government is now trying to cover it up. The Sri Lankan military and the security establishment is known to be close to the former president Rajapakse and his brother Gotabaya. Isn't it surprising Gota has now announced his candidacy for the presidential election and has stated he will be tough against the islamist, like he was against LTTE.

    Best way is to make them fight among themselves and we should help them from outside.

    Yes the Lankan security establishment harbors extreme distrust towards India and they more than suspect India's hidden in the ouster of their blue eyed boy Rajapakse.

    Another theory could be that they double-crossed them, most likely they were under their patronage.

    With so many prior intelligence, including from ex members of the group, if not patronage, they certainly would have had these guys on regular surveillance and any suspicious movement would have aroused interest. But Sri Lankan politics is such a snake pit of contending interests that anything is possible.

    The entire security apparatus was overhauled right after the defeat of Rajapaksha and lackeys of the current government was put in place to ensure smooth operations and prevent sabotages. It is highly hypocritical to put the blame on Gotabhaya who had started his annulment of the US citizenship months before this incident.

    The blame is entirely on the current government.
