Sri Lankan Minister Wimal Weerawansa has again attacked Google, this time blaming it for the current upheaval and protests against the anti-Islam movie.
Weerawansa said Google was responsible for the circulation of the video and that US authorities use the search engine to ‘suit their whims and fancies’, according to the Daily Mirror.
He urged the authorities to block the movie from being viewed by Sri Lankans.
Weerawansa had called for a boycott of US products, such as Google, Coca Cola, KFC and McDonald’s, earlier this year, and pledged that he would stop using his Gmail account.
A boycott, according to Weerawansa, would show the Americans “the strength of our nation” and said that “they will feel the effects of our actions.”
His rage stemmed from the “ill-treatment” he alleged the US to be “throwing” at Sri Lanka.
