    Same charge as for stepping on a shivalingam in Tamiland.

    All concerned need to understand under what context this has happened. Making conclusions that it is a sacrilege for any other religion to climb this cheithiya in mistake is not going to help this country towards a Sri Lankan identity. Places where persons are not allowed to walk inside need to be secured with gates with a clear notice. This is simply Sinhalese mania and exhibits the ignorance of that race.

    These illiterate barbarians seems to be directed by such a group who are trying to arouse Buddhists and lead to communal disunity,law enforcing officers, law courts,should give them maximum punishment, otherwise they will burn the country instigating communal violence

    I wonder what purpose it serves stating the exact name of the school these students are studying. As if that had any connection at all to their 'crime'. Also i have never seen any other article mention the school name or workplace of anyone arrested. In most cases it would be something like '...from a popular school in colombo' etc.

    Investigate what made them to do so it can't be just a photographic location and there is someone behind all this incident.
