    What abt other religions??

    McTavish Wednesday, 22 September 2010 06:06 PM

    great!! Sri Lanka should be a Buddhists country for another thousand years. (while respecting the values of other religions)

    Ravi Thursday, 23 September 2010 08:21 AM

    yes, the human sacrifice also should be stopped.

    A. Munaweera Wednesday, 22 September 2010 07:12 PM

    I hope the Hon. President can do something about animal sacrificing which needs to be stopped and also the inhuman way animals are slaughtered. If he is a true Buddhist as he says and wants to make SL a country with Buddhist values then it is high time he does this.

    The value of buddhism is its correct and ardent practice. Buddhism in Sri Lanka is more rituals than the actual practice.

    Then release Sf using that value.

    Concepts like "forget the past ", "develop the Country with Buddhist values " are very good ideas to anyone. But the need of the hour is, give a practicle example by stopping the humilation and harrasment against SF.

    "Balalobhikama" and taking credit for what others have done are not buddhist values.

    Mifaz Thursday, 23 September 2010 10:13 AM

    What about minority religeous values???

    TMA Thursday, 23 September 2010 04:24 AM

    Oh! jeez What the hell was he thinking? Now the whole wrld knows we're sum fanatic state

    Heman Thursday, 23 September 2010 04:33 AM

    Fox is splititing fools words dont disgrace Buddhism. First follow it then spell it. Telling all lying and doing all wrong things is that call Buddhism what a crap

    suwimal Thursday, 23 September 2010 04:36 AM

    Yea, Yea! But taking revenge is not a Buddhist value as far as my knowledge of buddhism is concerned or is it , according to new Mahinda?

    dutugamunu Wednesday, 22 September 2010 03:27 PM

    well said sir

    Its multi cultural country. As a president for all people he can't stand in one value.
