While people from all walks of life in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) were enjoying the great festivities to commemorate the return of Hong Kong to the motherland and the establishment of the HKSAR Monday, some ultra-radicals' violent acts of storming the region's Legislative Council (LegCo) complex posed an ugly contrast.

They stormed the LegCo complex in a violent manner, wantonly damaging facilities there.

Their violent acts gravely challenged and trampled the rule of law in Hong Kong, periled the interests and wellbeing of Hong Kong residents and jeopardized the social stability of Hong Kong.

The violence received wide and strong condemnation.

HKSAR Chief Executive Carrie Lam on Tuesday strongly condemned the violent acts, stressing that any illegal acts would be investigated.

The rule of law has always been a core value cherished by Hong Kong society. Some ultra-radicals, however, under the excuse of opposing the HKSAR government amending related ordinances, violently stormed the LegCo complex.

Seriously violating the law, the acts trampled the rule of law in Hong Kong, undermined social order of Hong Kong and the fundamental interests of Hong Kong residents, and were a blatant challenge to the bottom line of "one country, two systems."

These violent offenders must not be tolerated and must be severely punished for their illegal acts in accordance with the law.

People of Hong Kong may learn a lesson from the incident that the region's rule of law should be safeguarded as eyes are protected, and the region's prosperity and stability should be valued as life is valued.

No one can pursue the so-called political ends at the expense of tearing up society and jeopardizing the rule of law.

Hong Kong residents should firmly support the HKSAR government and police to exercise their lawful duty, look out for a few people who seize the opportunity to muddy the water and guard against the attempts from foreign forces to undermine China's sovereignty and security as well as Hong Kong's prosperity and stability.

All sectors of Hong Kong's society are expected to stand together and create a favorable social environment and necessary conditions for the HKSAR government to exercise law-based governance, develop the economy and improve livelihoods.

With the support from the central government and citizens of Hong Kong, the region will surely continue to maintain its prosperity and stability, and the practice of "one country, two systems" will continue to achieve progress.
