    I think most of the monks are reading too much news paper than holy books. Either way, all should go on a major diet. Good long hours of meditation should help them.

    As usual, these idling monks have jumped to a conclusion without even verifying facts and sprung into action just for some publicity. If it is alright for the Bodu Bala Sena to say that this country belongs only to Sinhala Buddhists and others should live under them, then what is wrong for Iran to ban objects of other religions as they are almost 90% Muslims. Apparently, what is sauce for the gander is not sauce for the geese.
