In case these attack are not in repose of New Zealand. are the terrorist choose the target based on maximum causalities or they choose churches because if they have chosen Buddhist place they fear maximum retaliation on Muslim community.

ISIS took the responsibility of the attacks, there were multiple intelligence inputs shared by Indian agencies about such attack and threat of ISIS but Sri Lanka still was caught very unprepared.

Possible Pakistan played any role in this? The jihadist pigs of Pakistan are always at forefront to spread Islam and kill innocents in name of Kuffar. Will be hard to belive those snakes in our backyard had no knowledge or role in this attack.

Sri Lanka PM Ranil Wickremesinghe To NDTV: "India Gave Us Intelligence, But There Was A Lapse"
India had shared intelligence inputs with Sri Lanka but there was "some lapse", the country's Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe told NDTV in an exclusive interview.

Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe spoke to NDTV in an exclusive interview.

India had shared intelligence inputs with Sri Lanka but there was a lapse in how the country handled it, Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe told NDTV in an exclusive interview in Colombo on Tuesday, three days after a terrorist attack killed more than 300 people and injured over 500.

"India gave us the intelligence but there has been a lapse on how we acted on that... intelligence was not conveyed down the line," Mr Wickremesinghe said, adding that Sri Lankan investigators were in touch with several countries, including China and Pakistan, as they probed the strike.

A series of eight explosions had hit churches and hotels on Easter Sunday in an attack that was claimed by terror network ISIS on Tuesday. Sri Lanka had earlier named a local Islamist group, National Thowheeth Jama'ath, as the chief suspect, for the incident act that has sparked international outrage. The suicide strikes sent shockwaves through the island state that has been relatively peaceful since a civil war ended a decade ago.

A statement on the ISIS's official al-Amaq news agency made the claim on the encrypted messaging app Telegram saying the suicide bombers were "fighters of the Islamic State". But it did not provide any evidence of its involvement.

ISIS claims responsibility for Sri Lanka blasts

Sri Lanka's worst terror attack targeting churches and luxury hotels that killed 321 people on Easter Sunday was claimed by the Islamic State. Forty suspects, including the driver of a van allegedly used by the suicide bombers, have been arrested ...

Indian intelligence officers contacted their Sri Lankan counterparts two hours before the first attack to warn of a specific threat on churches, news agency Reuters reported quoting a Sri Lankan defence source and an Indian government source. Another Sri Lankan defence source said a warning came "hours before" the first strike, Reuters reported.

"So far it [those responsible] has been a group confined to Sri Lankan citizens but with foreign connections. This is why we have asked the assistance of some of the foreign agencies to trace the overseas involvement," Mr Wickremesinghe said.

"We have a good intelligence sharing system with India. It has been giving us the help we need. We also have got help from USA and UK. Our priority is to apprehend the terrorists. Until we do that, no one is safe," he said.

The Prime Minister said it was possible that the attacks were retaliation for the shooting last month at a mosque in the New Zealand city of Christchurch - a theory that has been voiced by one of his ministers. "But the planning took place before Christchurch," Mr Wickremesinghe said.

He dismissed that the attacks have frayed communal harmony in Sri Lanka. "It is individuals who work on these and it is not organised movement backed by Muslims. There is a certain amount of tension but that is natural in situation like this. We have to tackle it," he said.

He said Sri Lanka was confident of its critical tourism sector recovering from the setback. "We will be back on the scene. Not only us, Egypt has gone through this, Bali had been through it. It is unfortunate for the economy but tourism will recover... we have come through many such incidents of terror and war," Mr Wickremesinghe said.

I will not be surprised if mullahs and imams in Sri Lanka go missing. They have had enough with the LTTE and will not take a second chance, especially after such a massive intel failure.

It would be pretty naive to believe that attack was in response to christchurch incident. Pakistan has been trying to set up a base in Sri Lanka for quite some time , they badly needed one as their activities in Bangladesh & Nepal were totally disrupted.

Their aim seems to be to create a pool of radicals who can be used against India and neighborhood. Once the investigation starts we will know more about their links and obviously they will play the usual victim card. ISIS is a facade for their activities just like in Afghanistan.

India sent three alerts to Sri Lanka before Easter Sunday attack

Three alerts !! Clearly they didn't give a flying f**k about our warnings. Maybe they asked the ISI to confirm the intelligence that we shared.:cautious:
Due to political infighting Sri Lankan PM was kept in dark of these developments by President of Sri Lanka, maybe few even wanted some attack to make Ranil Wickramasinghe pay politically, like our congress went to align with Hafiz Saeed to fix long term political threat Modi and Shah.
