first_imgAdvertisement AdvertisementSri Lanka has been hit by one of the worst terrorist attacks ever since the civil war ended a decade ago. The terrorist attacks were carried out by suicide bombers from the local Islamist group National Thowheed Jamath (NTJ).At least 350 people were killed in the blasts and over 500 wounded. These bombings will have a lasting effect on the Island nation which had become a major tourist hub in recent years and was extremely popular amongst Indian tourists.Former Sri Lankan cricketers Chaminda Vaas condemned these attacks and offered condolences to the families of the victim.“We never thought these kinds of things will happen in Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka is a lovely country and hospitable. People are very friendly. It is so tragic to see such things happen,” Vaas said.“We can rebuild churches or hotels but we can’t bring lives back. I am sure the Sri Lankan government and the people will be very united this time and make sure that they stick together,” Vaas said.He also said that such attacks won’t hamper cricket playing nations touring the Island nation.“These attacks can happen anywhere in the world. We saw in New Zealand recently as well. These people doesn’t have simply one place (and) they can attack anywhere in the world. I am pretty sure that things will go back to normal.” Vaas said.ALSO READ:Kevin Pietersen admitted that he isn’t convinced of Vijay Shankar at No. 4 position in the Indian team for the 2019 ICC World Cup.last_img read more
