    need to stop 1 thing at a time. you cannot stop everything at a time. this is a Buddhist country.

    Are you going to protest animal slaughter at other places too? Such as Marktets, slaughter houses, fishing etc etc.. Or is this just a one off-protest?

    Positive Thinker Thursday, 26 August 2010 09:36 AM

    Useless people, where is Mathata Titha? During last year over 2,800 new liquor licenses have been issued and revenue increased in billions. Example is set at the Temple Trees.

    Bhumi Thursday, 26 August 2010 09:37 AM

    Before trying to stop animal killings by others we should stop doing and encouraging it by being vegetarians. Bhikkus should set an example first by partaking only vegetarian food.

    Mudith Thursday, 26 August 2010 09:42 AM

    This is Sri Lanka land of buddhists. all animals in this country should live in harmony. Moreover, this is a civilized country. Get these devil worshipers out of this society.

    deyyiya Thursday, 26 August 2010 09:43 AM

    Yes...any protests planned for the 2800 liqour licenses issued last year? mathata thitha ??

    why didn't you guys come out for GSF,???

    manjula Thursday, 26 August 2010 10:15 AM

    if this exercise is genuinely to stop killing animals, i'm fully with u JHU. i thought we were civilized a millenium ago.

    chris abey Thursday, 26 August 2010 11:07 AM

    Where were the monks when human beings were killed ?? In 1983,1989 ? Whom are you guys trying to fool?

    Jayasiri Thursday, 26 August 2010 11:08 AM

    Killing animals for God is babaric

    sltk2004 Thursday, 26 August 2010 11:20 AM

    This is not JHU

    Watchman Thursday, 26 August 2010 11:27 AM

    They don't value General SF even upto an animal. Pathetic...!

    azy Thursday, 26 August 2010 11:31 AM

    what do u mean by sathwa gaathana? science is more advance and it says now event plant have life. they can even cry and feel the pain. what do u do now? are u trying not to eat plants too?

    Dicky Athugala Thursday, 26 August 2010 08:30 AM

    JUH, it's time to go home. You people have failed in many ways.

    Shyama Thursday, 26 August 2010 08:32 AM

    before trying to correct people from other religions, why aren't we trying to correct our own people from all the wrong doings?? Follow all mass killings of humans during the last few months...almost all done by so called Buddhists... We should get together to clean our back yard before going to our neighbours'

    Dank Thursday, 26 August 2010 08:34 AM

    Imagine what would happen if lord buddha saw this ?

    udana Friday, 27 August 2010 06:48 AM

    do you really know how many monks were kille during the same years

    lizzett Thursday, 26 August 2010 11:59 AM

    he only did according to his bosses orders nothing else. So the credit goes to MR

    Tissamaharama Thursday, 26 August 2010 12:25 PM

    Protest against the slaughetr of animals is indeed laudable. But it should be conducted in a manner that will not create any racial dissension. Otherwise we will again see the spectre of man slaughter

    Dheen Thursday, 26 August 2010 12:33 PM

    I totally agree with sacrificing animals in this modern era but do we practice Buddhism in the true sense in Sri Lanka. Your conscience will give the answer

    dass Thursday, 26 August 2010 12:39 PM

    I hope all of theose who protest here are vegetarians.

    mw Thursday, 26 August 2010 08:51 AM

    :( what would the Buddha have said? means are as important as the ends...
