Sri Lankans in Italy urged the Sri Lankan Embassy to take immediate action to remove the name of the ‘Buddha’ which is being used on the name board of a Bar’ located at Sala Baganza in Parma, Italy.

This bar is said to have been opened recently. Sri Lankans living in the area said they boycotted this bar named as the ‘Buddha Bar’ and requested others living in the area to do the same as a mark of protest. (Jude Samantha)

    Italians by nature are stubborn and strong headed. They are not going to change the board. Our Ambassador, a political appointee, should have known this. via DM iPad app

    No one has the right to hurt the feelings of any person if any religion. Tough action should be taken against these.

    I can't really understand how the authorities approve such a thing as everybody knows it is directly insulting and disturbing a community and the followers of one of the major faiths in the world!
