    how do you expect the tamils or muslims to respect you when you people dont respect their traditions and rituals???

    how can there be peace in the country when such things happen??

    Sarath Fonseak is having a foul mouth , he slang mud every one who lead the war , If he keeps his mouth shut MR might pardon him

    We need a sangayanawa very soon.

    K. Hewamanna Tuesday, 24 August 2010 04:52 PM

    There are many others important issues .

    Arthy Tuesday, 24 August 2010 04:53 PM

    Where were these monks when Tamils slaughtered week of ending the war?

    demon Tuesday, 24 August 2010 05:05 PM

    monks are becoming the jokers of our country...better employ them...

    uni Tuesday, 24 August 2010 05:29 PM

    Did any of this monk ever protst for killing of civilians in war zone?

    IrajCalifornia Tuesday, 24 August 2010 05:29 PM

    Like you Monks also have the right to act upon ,what they think as right or wrong ... !!!

    ranjith Tuesday, 24 August 2010 05:30 PM

    If you protect animal rights human rights will be protected.

    mata nikang hithunan Tuesday, 24 August 2010 05:47 PM

    No use dear monks. come into politics, that is better. look at the yellow robes in the parliament.

    Janakan Tuesday, 24 August 2010 05:51 PM

    Big fish eating all small fishes....

    Ananda Herath Tuesday, 24 August 2010 06:34 PM

    Come-on, all of you are missing the point! This is about stopping a mass slaughter of poor animals, but you are talking of other issues.

    Ananda Herath Tuesday, 24 August 2010 06:34 PM

    The slaughter of animals cannot be tolerated, for whatever reason!

    Janaka Tuesday, 24 August 2010 07:02 PM

    All monks too should stop accepting meat!

    ranjith Tuesday, 24 August 2010 07:16 PM

    This must be stopped!

    sullen Tuesday, 24 August 2010 07:39 PM

    Where where these monks when civilians were caught in the crossfire of war?

    jay Tuesday, 24 August 2010 08:17 PM

    Let's think objectively ... animal sacrifice will not bring anyone any closer to heaven. This same logic applies to every religion. The monks are correct to protest.

    Wasantha Tuesday, 24 August 2010 03:07 PM

    This is better than the recent protest of monks on behalf of Dr.Merwin. We should give the priority to safeguard the rights of animals and not thugs.

    Wije desilva Tuesday, 24 August 2010 03:11 PM

    Dear Monks,

    Please stage a protest for the injustice being done to General Fonseka and do not waste your time in protesting for animals.
    Look after the human beings first.

    Wije desilva

    Tori Tuesday, 24 August 2010 03:21 PM

    This slaughter in the name of the God should be stopped.

    mw Tuesday, 24 August 2010 03:28 PM

    For the Buddhist Monks - the means are as important and the ends. Your protests must necessarily be non-violent, if it is to be meaningful; both in mind, bodily actions, and speech.

    Saradial Tuesday, 24 August 2010 11:33 PM

    If you relay want to save animals let's 1st stop fishing, because we Sri Lanans kill many times more fish than Cows and goat?

    Ruwan Ferdinandez Wednesday, 25 August 2010 07:28 AM

    They were protesting aginst terrorists, but the mad guy didn't listen.

    roshan raz Tuesday, 24 August 2010 03:36 PM

    when people are muredered in broad day light monks dont protest....

    Smart Aleck Tuesday, 24 August 2010 11:43 PM

    Even the Munneswaran Kovil is against this slaughter.

    Lalith Tuesday, 24 August 2010 11:46 PM

    Slaughtering animals, in Sri Lanka, should be prohibited!

    bhathiya Tuesday, 24 August 2010 03:36 PM

    do not allow politicians to intervene, otherwise there will be another ethnic conflict in future
