He was seriously injured when a stone hurled by protester had hit him on the head.
Police fired tear gas and used water cannons to disperse the Inter-University Bhikku Federation (IUBF) students.

Do we not believe in expelling students with no discipline? Schools expelled such student bringing bad reputation. What do these men bring to Buddhism?

These students and the monks are not acting in a civilised way.Are they practising the preaching of Lord Buddha.The law enforcement authorities should punsh them as they are endangering the lives of the policemen.These guys are a burden to the country

Unprofessional Police should be treated like this ?

I saw how they behaved. They were a bunch of rowdies and not Buddhist priests. Gettin five of them admitted to hospital does not prove otherwise.Send them to jail with hard labour !

Disrobe this man and give maximum punishment for this act of thuggery.

The monks are learning to be scoundrels. If any students are violent in their protest, identify them and expel them from the university.

So these so called Buddhist monks are the people who will protect the Buddhism in our country in the future.The parents who gave them to the temples to become monks must be sent to mental hospital.I wonder what action the mahanayake at Malwatte chapter and the Anunayaka at Asgiriya chapter has to say about yesterday;s incident.

It is shame to all Sri Lankans as monks behave such a act. Law should be same to all including Monks.

Nobody talk about the root of the problem. only talk about the consequences of the protest. this is not only for this case. this is same for every important issue. this shows the real mentality of our current generation.
