    We have to get closer to India than China as she is our immediate neighbor.

    First Babari Masjid. Now Buddhagaya! Gov of Maharashtra is not doing a good job for its minority!

    Only a very sick mind will think of forced conversion or to over-power a devotion through thuggery and mayhem.

    Ameen Muzlideen, If that is the case, you were not be able to put this comment as you would have been a person subjected to what you call mandate for non believers.

    Please don't arouse racism in peaceful Sri Lanka. Stop name calling like "thambi" "wathu demala"

    where ever the troubles are, you will find jihadists.

    Rick Monday, 15 October 2012 08:36 AM

    Its ironic, that with such threats to Buddhism from Muslims. That in Lanka, the so called Buddhist leaders are bending over backwards to the Muslims!

    Senaka Monday, 15 October 2012 03:55 AM

    Save the Christians ....wat happen to thambi and wathu demala is not our problem...

    xlntgson Tuesday, 16 October 2012 07:01 AM

    Provocations continue, the internet lets such words sans editing to blame on reactionaries, war mongers etc.(jihadists?) of all religionists! Don't you find them in non muslims?

    anthare pora Monday, 15 October 2012 05:41 AM

    Ane Impatial,

    Get rid of your colonical thinking

    Ameen Muzlideen Monday, 15 October 2012 05:35 AM

    demolishing babri masjid was a good thing! Why should we respect a intolerant ideology which mandates the killing of 'non-believers'?

    Aashiq Monday, 15 October 2012 11:41 AM

    As long as people like you exist who deliberately misguide the truth, there will be violent in this world.....
