Sri Lankan press criticizes demonisation of Pakistan

Sri Lankan papers have slammed the tendency in some quarters to use the 3/3 terrorist outrage against Sri Lankan cricketers in Lahore, to demonise Pakistan and make it an international outcaste.
'One should condemn the many TV spotlights attempting to demonise Pakistan. Sri Lanka too was at one time a victim of this ostracisation by countries, which affected our economy and damaged its good name,' said an edit in the state-owned Daily News on Thursday.

Though no particular country or region was mentioned by the Sri Lankan papers, it was clear that the reference was to India and to some extent the West, which slammed Pakistan for turning a blind eye to the scourge of terrorism and nurturing it for use against its neighbors.

'Those baying for Pakistan's blood should instead strive to help that country out of its present predicament. These elements who are using Tuesday's attack to drive a knife into an already battered and bruised nation should take a leaf out of Sri Lanka,which has conducted itself with equanimity towards a friendly neighbor despite being at the receiving end of a dastardly terror attack on its soil,' Daily News which is Sri Lanka's largest selling English language daily said..

'Such name calling certainly would not augur well for regional cooperation that is often the by-word at international summits. Besides, this can only antagonise Pakistan and place road blocks in the campaign to defeat terrorism,' it added.

SL businessman pleads to save Pak cricket

A businessman who founded a charity that raised two million dollars for Sri Lanka after the December 26, 2004 Asian tsunami, has pleaded for Australia's cricket community to "do everything possible to help Pakistan".
Sri Lanka-born Harry Solomons's plea echoed distraught Pakistan captain Younus Khan's warning last week that without the availability of international exposure, Pakistani cricket could die.
Solomons, who enlisted his network of high-profile Australian and international cricketers to raise funds to build homes in Sri Lanka after the 2004 tsunami, said he has been asked a few months ago by former employee and Australia vice-captain Michael Clarke if he believed Australia should tour Pakistan.
"I told him 'no,' said Solomons, who provided a reference for Trevor Bayliss when he applied for the Sri Lanka coaching job.
"But after what has happened now, I think it is vital for the Australian cricket community not to abandon Pakistan."
Solomons imports bats and cricket clothes from Pakistan. Several Sydney grade teams use the gear.
"Pakistan is a great cricketing nation and if we abandon them now, cricket there will die. We mustn't allow that to happen," he said.
