    No he is NOT!. Good monks never engage in any kind of politics whether as candidates or as supporters.

    Then how come he has close links with BBS Gen. Secretary who came to see him yesterday. (we watched everything over the TV)

    Hari Wednesday, 02 August 2017 10:02 AM

    No he is not . Once he fake his own kidnap and fortunately because of CCTV cameras it was reveled. He is puppet of Muslim extremists.

    Behaving in a violent manner outside the Presidential Secretariat and getting suddenly ill once arrested.Just think. Now who is doing the biggest damage to Buddhism in this country? It is in deed sad to see that the great religion preached by Lord Buddha, the greatest philosopher the world ever saw is now been used as a shield to get immunity by a few thugs wearing robes..

    Why can't these monks behave in a respectable manner suitable to them? Is not there a leading monk to control or guide them?

    J Palitha Wednesday, 02 August 2017 09:33 AM

    Halloo, even the Politicians are controlled by monks. SL is the only country dancing according to monks music.

    Aladeniya Kirimathaya Wednesday, 02 August 2017 09:35 AM

    Yes, honestly Monks should preach the Dharma and defined to temples not to walk in the streets or take part in protests.

    malij Tuesday, 01 August 2017 09:06 PM

    He should be sent to a mental hospital at least for couple of months for desecrating, sacred robes.

    Aussie Tuesday, 01 August 2017 09:44 PM

    Police has admitted him in the wrong Hospital. Please take him to the Mental Hospital. This type of priests help ruining the country. We don't know why Chief Prelates are keeping quite.

    Sad to be a buddhist when such elements remain.

    Kadupol Jothywansa Wednesday, 02 August 2017 09:36 AM

    Honestly, its a disgrace for Buddhism.

    Nita Wednesday, 02 August 2017 01:38 AM

    THOSE WHO WANT TO DABBLE IN MATTERS OUTSIDE THE PRECEPTS THAT THEY HAVE TAKEN MUST LEAVE WITHOUT DAMAGING THE SASANA. THESE ARE IN MEN ROBES TO GO PLACES NOT TO PREACH THE DHAMMA

    I watched the news segment. Ven. Vijitha did not use foul language, behave violently or threaten anyone. He only protested against the government and his civic right as a citizen. This gov't is going insane each day it passes in power.

    Lion Viswanathan Wednesday, 02 August 2017 09:40 AM

    Hay stop your bull shit talk, legally no one has the right to protest against the Govt. its a crime.

    Harry Thursday, 03 August 2017 06:22 AM

    Then what the hell LTTE did and you supported?

    DillonDP Wednesday, 02 August 2017 09:26 AM

    He should rather be admitted at the mental institute together with the people who accepted his admission to the national hospital

    Ronnie Bugger Wednesday, 02 August 2017 09:33 AM

    There is nothing venerable about this man's behaviour. Nobody would want to waste time with him so remove the Police guard.

    Casanova Wednesday, 02 August 2017 09:47 AM

    when there is no women and alcohol .......................there are chances that men can go crazy.

    VJ Wednesday, 02 August 2017 11:47 AM

    Is he being treated for mental illness?

    Don Juan Wednesday, 02 August 2017 02:13 PM

    Watareka was a very famous place about 50 -60 years ago where Watareka - Jemis was was living. May be Ven. monk was a relative of Watareka - Jemis

    THE REAL CULPRIT IS A FREE BIRD UNDER PROTECTION OF THE GOVT. BUT THE INNOCENT ONE IS ARRESTED. A WONDER OF SO CALLED YAHAPALA NA JUSTICE. via DM Android App
