Protestors threaten 'rotten eggs for IPL cricketers'

3 April 2013 07:29 am - 44     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


‘Ravana Balaya’ members including Buddhist monks held a protest rally outside Sri Lanka Cricket office today vowing to “take action against the cricketers who are prostituting themselves for money”.

Some 200 members gathered there chanted slogans against the Sri Lankan cricketers who are participating in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
“These cricketers have prostituted themselves for Jayalalithaa’s money. We respect those who refused to bow down to money power,” the organisation’s secretary Iththakande Saddathissa Thera said.
Five monks were allowed to enter the SLC office and hold discussions with SLC Secretary Nishantha Ranatunga.
“Nishantha was aggressive, but we can be more aggressive. We have good medicine for aggression. The day will soon arrive when the very same hands that applauded the cricketers are used to throw rotten eggs at them,” the monk said.( Lahiru Pothmulla)

    Everything rises and falls on leadership. The only thing I see within Buddhism leadership is hypocrisy, lust, envy, anger, jealousy, bitterness and all the other works of the flesh....

    Are they really following the Dhamma preached by Lord Buddha?

    They forget that our cricketers are far batter than politicians in this country.

    Where these people gone when politicians robbing this country left to right.

    Let monks be in the temple.Then we can solve lot of problems in this country.

    God save our beautiful country.

    Are there any real Buddhist monks left in Sri Lanka?

    They have destroyed real Buddhism and replaced it with bad ideas (where did they import that from hmm).

    When the other Asian players get disgraced and their belongings get targeted, we use to put our collars up and say we never treat our champions like that,no matter what happens. But what is happening now??What is the difference between the other natiosn and us? Leave the players alone.They have not betrayed the nation.there are plenty who r doing it right now,fight against them!!!!!

    These monks' approach to certain issues is not logic and they are far from the true Buddhism.

    Kabul Thursday, 04 April 2013 10:30 AM

    This is like Muslim Extremism-ism! These groups are similar to terrorist groups!

    Rohan Friday, 05 April 2013 09:56 AM

    Where were they during the war time. What they have done to protect the mother land. Why don't they stay in the temple and preach.

    Instead of agitating for petty reasons, why BBS and the like is silent about corruption and lawlessness among connected which is affecting the people they suppose to represent. Also the acute malnutrition due to poor diet.

    when our cricketers were attacked in Pakistan as sri lankans we condemned it ans now a group is threatening to attack our cricketers in sri lanaka. are authorities blind? are they going to allow this to happen?

    Calistus Jayatilleke Wednesday, 03 April 2013 11:15 AM

    Rotten eggs? Thoroughly unbecoming for a monk to make such a statement.

    raviraj Wednesday, 03 April 2013 11:17 AM

    Buddhist monks threatening to attack SL players in SL, and you people complain and ridicule TN politicians, I think they are a lot better, and our players may be safer in India.
