I was recently contacted by a journalist from one of the leading Sunday newspapers in Sri Lanka on the growing anti-Muslim hate campaigns in Sri Lanka. The journalist asked two questions (reproduced verbatim),
- Anti-Muslim/Anti-Buddhist sentiments are being spread around effectively by social media, how do you analyse this?
- How can social media be used to stop such conflicts between communities?
I responded in some detail. Since the article in question was never published, I published my email here.
