    This is nothing but Murder suicide. Good deed, bad planning.

    when LTTE was active, all these monks were hiding, it was our brothers who sacrifice their life for the war. Now all of these monks are very active. I do not know why the government does not do any thing to this type of acts. We had 30 years of war and scarified a lot.
    I lost my brother and two cosines who were in forces.
    Dear President! Please act without further delay. Please bring the bill proposed by Vasu to the parliament. and ban this type of organizations.

    No peace for the dead. There are those who want to make capital out of it.

    Good idea- Not only price increase but also a partial emergency.

    Due Respect must be given to the Thera who sacrifice his life for Sinhalese Buddhist.
