My father is an icon as to what dictators are willing to do

I know you all have been there with my father since the presidential election and have been watching closely as to what the government has been doing to him day by day. Things are said to become better with time but so far we are yet to see that day. However, I feel like the time has come to voice out. What are we waiting for? If we do not fight for democracy now, when are we planning on fighting for it?


Gen Sarath Fonseka

My father is an icon as to what the dictators are willing to do.

However, he seems to still stand strong without bending to their will. He does not change parties or change his views just because the going gets tough. He believes that if going to jail is what it takes to bring the people their rights, then let it be so.

Think about it, if it's a normal political life he wants, why is he the only one suffering in jail? Why does he not just give in to what the government says? He wants a better tomorrow not just for him self but for all Sri Lankans. That is why he has decided to sacrifice his happiness for others.

We waited all this time hoping for a miracle to happen. But, if you don't really stand by him now, the government will make sure you will never get the opportunity to do so.

So, please do what you can to save our hero. Even a small gesture might go a long way. He once promised a country free of terror and kept his word. He has once again promised a country that stays true to democracy. Therefore, give your assistance to him to keep his word. ~ Apsara Fonseka.
