    She will be branded by Wimal as a US spy.

    UNP 's luck seem to be on the forward march

    Why, has she lost all avenues of political survival? She should mind her duties to her family and stay at home. That is the best she can do as a Muslim woman.

    Mushi Wednesday, 31 October 2012 12:00 AM

    Y not join SLMC and sell muslim votes to govt?Today muslim leaders are puppets and dont voice for community but sell community for their personal gains. via DM Android App

    Uummmmah... doubt very much that you can turn those JVP/JNP votes to UNP. To survive and serve UNP you need millions to canvas for votes. Very much doubt that you have that ability, which is not required with JVP / JNP.

    is the musical chairs season to begin soon

    This is why women are trying to fight for equality in a male dominated.

    sam Wednesday, 31 October 2012 12:00 AM

    dear fazal, dont ever think that women should be limited to the house and enjoy house hold work only. its because of you men that the our non muslim brothers and sisters have a bad impression about the rights of women in islam. via DM Android App

    Indian Habit - don't make insulting remarks. Whether you care or not the lady has made her choice and the public should respect that. Probably you are not capable enough to do what this lady has done.

    Merrilght Wednesday, 31 October 2012 09:24 AM

    Some one of the class of Malala of Pakistan.

    Devaka J - Kadawatha Wednesday, 31 October 2012 09:32 AM

    From Extreme Left to Extreme Right ! From Socialism to Liberal Democracy ! we can evaluate their Wisdom ! Only in Sri Lanka these jokes are visible . at least she will be a better prospect than Paba and Anarkali .

    Calistus Jayatilleke Thursday, 01 November 2012 12:31 PM

    Now that the UNP has officially announced radical reforms including non-compliance with requirements of the World Bank and IMF; it is most opportune for Minister Weerawansa too to join the UNP and help in "unplugging".

    Damien Perera Wednesday, 31 October 2012 09:37 AM

    Why did she join the United National Party when the Party is anything but united with little or no prospect of it winning any election particularly with Ranil W at the helm?

    Woman's instinct!

    Labby Wednesday, 31 October 2012 09:39 AM

    Cancer, stop talking nonsense !

    Prem Wednesday, 31 October 2012 09:47 AM

    You all were misled by Wimal

    Ashraf Nazim Wednesday, 31 October 2012 10:07 AM

    What made you to desert Wimal's party? He is such a good soul and a die-hard patriot.

    Lankalion Wednesday, 31 October 2012 10:14 AM

    Fazal, why won't you and your ideas get shipped over to a place like Afghanistan where it will be appreciated. There is no room in this world and in this country for male chauvinism anymore. Muslim women have every right to and should be encouraged to participate in political discourse and parliamentary life. The main reason this country is in dire straights is because you have testosterome induced, uneducated men dominating political life for the detriment of everyone else!

    Indian Habit Wednesday, 31 October 2012 10:31 AM

    who care of this woman

    Hamza Wednesday, 31 October 2012 10:30 AM

    Dear Fazal, please don't show your ignorance in public.

    mamath Wednesday, 31 October 2012 10:31 AM

    trojan horse?

    Aney Machang Wednesday, 31 October 2012 10:46 AM

    Headlines in UNP media..
    "ANJAN UMMA" joins Ranil to bring UNP into power

    anthare pora Wednesday, 31 October 2012 10:50 AM

    Yes yes UNP need people / votes badly

    Ryan Wednesday, 31 October 2012 10:57 AM

    Good for UNP

    xlntgson Wednesday, 31 October 2012 11:11 AM

    Anjanam eliya!

    iqi Wednesday, 31 October 2012 11:05 AM

    She came in as an JVP member of parliment and got a Prado .So now she has to join the UNP as she is a capitalist.

    anil Wednesday, 31 October 2012 11:12 AM

    Trojan woman?

    Arana Wednesday, 31 October 2012 11:34 AM

    Fazal, This is not an Arabic or gulf country,

    rambo Thursday, 01 November 2012 11:34 PM

    This is the natural path of JVP. From JVP via SLFP to UNP.

    Rubert Vanderkoon Thursday, 01 November 2012 08:53 AM

    Give us a break, will ye? Malala was shot for demanding basic education rights for women, because she is intelligent while this lady has moved party for selfish reasons, while the UNP is at its lowest ebb, showing how unintelligent she is.
