God Bless Mr.Silva..there should be more people like him!Love and light to all of God's creatures..and always compassion!

It is true that the animals will be killed anyway. Its the brutal way that they are killed that should be stopped.
Ahamed Tuesday, 13 September 2011 11:19 AM
I appeal to Mr Gotabaya Rajapakse to whom I have a great respect to intervene personally and find a resolution to this recurring problem. The Muslims will celebrate their Eid ul Adha festival during the second week of November and I fear a fluid situation could arise at that time as well if arbitrary interpretations of the law, like the one Dr Mervin engages in is not stopped permanently.

Mr. Hero Honda Oh. Ohh. Rajini Kanth
Roger Tuesday, 13 September 2011 11:24 AM
Totally agree with the Dr. for the first time. Where was he when those innocent people were killed by the govt. troops during the last stage of the war?
Silva Tuesday, 13 September 2011 06:12 PM
You are all stupid, like the hero. What do you think will happen to these animals? They will be killed by somebody and eaten or sold for eating.
reeri yaka Tuesday, 13 September 2011 11:28 AM

He should be the President. Thank you for your great work. Better yet demolish the bloody kovil.
Lal Tuesday, 13 September 2011 11:43 AM

Marian Thursday, 15 September 2011 07:11 AM
Well done for the act of Animal rights by the honorable Minister Mr. Merwin Silva. These animals have the right to live their life too as a part of the creation on this planet Earth.
Optimus Prime Tuesday, 13 September 2011 08:48 AM

Rattapakse Tuesday, 13 September 2011 11:51 AM
This time doctor decided to release something from the rope.

srinath.gunaratne Tuesday, 13 September 2011 08:54 AM
Why can not preseident understand these actions represent the lawlesness of the country? This is fuel to UN and the fact simply is there is no law and order in the country. This looks like crabs dancing untill the water boils. These acts aleinate tamils further and make a strong case for seperatism. When do we learn when?
kalum Tuesday, 13 September 2011 09:01 AM
Mir Mervin also doing good work.
Najeeb Tuesday, 13 September 2011 12:00 PM

rohan Tuesday, 13 September 2011 09:06 AM
Dr.Mervin, you are a real Hero.
Poor people Tuesday, 13 September 2011 12:12 PM
Ideal to Sacrifise him for the sake of better future, for all Sri Lankans.
Sirimal Tuesday, 13 September 2011 09:07 AM

ishi Tuesday, 13 September 2011 12:11 PM
What is punya karmaya? saving goats and chicken and sacrificing tamils instead???????
ICC Tuesday, 13 September 2011 12:20 PM
GOOD OR BAD M SILVA WILL GET SOME THING SOONA OR LATER.
Appuhami Tuesday, 13 September 2011 12:20 PM
Animal sacrifice is a very sensitive social issue. For some it is a sin. But for some other it is a sacred. This issue has to be addressed very deeply and full attention needed by the top in order to develop a matured multicultural society.
Muraly Tuesday, 13 September 2011 09:14 AM
At last one good work by Dr.Mervin Silva.
Will he stop drug dealing ?
YURI Tuesday, 13 September 2011 12:16 PM
Only you can see in Sri Lankan.
Sammy Tuesday, 13 September 2011 12:26 PM
Good job but MS should show more compassion to human beings as well.
Christopher Tuesday, 13 September 2011 12:20 PM
Why not the Sinhalese people stop killing human beings instead of Animals? As per Buddhism you cannot eat Fish too. Stop killing the fish as well Mervin. Drug dealers who destroy the nation talking about animal killing. I am asking doesn't Dr. Mervin eat KOTHTHU ROTTI any more? what about his son Malaka in his Casinos does he eat VEGETABLE after boozing with women?
Gemiya Tuesday, 13 September 2011 12:21 PM
Put sympathy on your relations.
Gemiya Tuesday, 13 September 2011 12:29 PM
Appu Tuesday, 13 September 2011 12:22 PM
That is the difference man! When you kill for meat there is a purpose but when you kill for sacrifice what is the purpose? Even if killed for meat, it also has to be done in humane way. Of course the best is to be vegetarian if you are true rilious person or want to minimize your carbon foot print.
Senior citizen Tuesday, 13 September 2011 12:29 PM
Why don't him appoint as the minister of devils. He will stopp all the illleagel activities of the country. Dear Minister big thanks for you. Why don't kill all the rapist and murderes. please do something against human devil activities. Cheeran Jayatu our Mervin ayiaa.
ranjit Tuesday, 13 September 2011 09:11 AM
If the killing is wrong, selling & eating too must be wrong. You cannot sell and eat without killing. Something is wrong somewhere. Why not selling & eating banned?.
Rosh Tuesday, 13 September 2011 09:19 AM
The first ever good news about Dr
roshan Tuesday, 13 September 2011 09:24 AM
Who gives food and place to live for these animals from today? Very easily can show colours and next second can come to Colombo. whts the out comes of this.
SL Boy Tuesday, 13 September 2011 12:45 PM
Where were you when, tousand of peoples(Innocent sinhala/Tamil and Muslims),tousand of leaders in SL, thousand of religious leaders, thousand of politicients killing by LTTE? Where were you?
Mohd. Tuesday, 13 September 2011 09:34 AM
This is nonsensical!!! Playing against the faith or belief of people is too dangerous!!! Mervin Silva is extorting hundreds of innocent human being on daily basis and is doing the bigger crimes in the Country as whole. He is the God Father of Crimes in Sri Lanka and is a bloody murderer (in the sense of killing the feelings of Innocent Human Beings) … Killing animals for the good course (i.e.: eating and prayers) are acceptable and is allowed by almost all the religious scriptures. Try to understand the value of so …. Moreover, he and his family members should stop consuming non-veg. in the first place and also insist his gangsters and supporters to stop eating non-veg. Most of his rowdies are fond of Meat, Fork, Chicken, Egg and Fish.
Anjula Tuesday, 13 September 2011 01:22 PM
always conveyed my bad comments to Marvin Silva's misbehavior, But this time I am putting my hat off to him.Actually this is great work to stop killing innocent animals, ...... well done & great work Marvin Ayya
A man's real strength is shown by how he treats his infererios, the defenceless, voiceless, and not how he treats those tamils who shoot guns and bombs at little children. So for this I say, well done Mervin. I never thought I'd say this about a bully like you, but you have a good heart.
Lapati Kesel Tuesday, 13 September 2011 01:34 PM
Good show Mervin aiya. Keep it up !
