Colombo: Organisers of a recent concert of world famous pop star Enrique Iglesias in Colombo should be "whipped with toxic stingray tails" because it was "uncivilised", said Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena.

A December 20 concert in the capital of Sri Lanka, Colombo, saw euphoric local female running on stage to hug and kiss the "Hero" singer. Others threw their underwear at him, Sirisena told a public meeting in the eastern district of Ampara.

"This is most uncivilised behaviour that goes against our culture," the president said and added, "I don't advocate that these uncivilised women who removed their brassieres should be beaten with toxic stingray tails, but those who organised such an event should be", reported AFP.

It is worth mentioning here that beating with the tails of stingrays was reserved for very hardcore criminals in Sri Lanka in medieval time. It is used as a popular idiom for an extreme punishment of wrongdoing.
