    I object to violenc because when it appears to do good , the good is temporary, the evil it does is permanent.

    but what is gandhi's statue doing in sri lanka. India had done more damages to sri lanka by breeding the ltte.

    Willfully or maliciously damage or destroy especially public property by the wrong doers are immorally wrong.Concern authorities must investigate & punish whoever done this brutal action.

    It was Mahatma's spade work that helped Sri Lanka get independence. I should say we got a free ride to independence.

    Monkeys wouldn't understand the worth and beauty of garlands of flowers that never wither.

    I find it hard to fathom the society that we live in - in Sri Lanka. My earlier comment above, have received 15 negative points. What sort of mind set do these morons have, to red line a decent, intelligent comment? Either they do not comprehend the English language or their mind set is perverted.

    faqi Friday, 06 April 2012 07:27 AM

    I hope who ever did this horrendous act is arrested and punished severely. Just disgraceful act of vandalism.

    Sagarika Friday, 06 April 2012 07:31 AM

    very sad!
