The Military official who is attached the Sri Lanka’s High Commission in London, came to the spotlight recently for his ‘Cut Throat’ gesture towards a group, which staged a protest against the Independence Day celebration in UK.

However, President of Sri Lanka took steps to revoke the suspension by Sri Lankan authorities.

The President’s unexpected decision, was welcomed well by the Majority of the Sinhala community, who had already given the Brigadier a ‘Hero’ status.

The Social Media community, reacted happily by changing their profile pictures and sharing posts in support of Priyanka after him being reinstated to the position.

The majority of the Sinhala community allege that those who staged the protest in UK, disgraced the country and Brigadier should be honored for reacting in such a manner.

They note that it is common that anyone, who has love on their mother land, reacting in such a manner, when their land is being disgraced.

However, those who are not ready to accept his gesture, since he is a military official, argue that the Brigadier should be held responsible for a cruel gesture.
