Should be life in prison for all the damaged created.
Dr. (Mrs) P.T. Karunaratne Friday, 15 June 2018 02:54 PM
We would prefer if this fellow is kept behind bars life time.
Gummay Baiya Friday, 15 June 2018 08:34 PM

Never allow him, never.. he is a worst criminal who could harm the good governance for sure.
Lion S. Ariyaratne Friday, 15 June 2018 03:49 PM
He is the main man behind all religious riots. He wears the ropes and insulting Buddhism.
E.T. Leel Kumara Friday, 15 June 2018 03:51 PM
Mahinda kept this Thero as a shield for him to create problems among the communities. He should be kept behind bars forever.

In case any sort of redress underming the decision of earlier magistrate , it will be certainly tantamount to injustice and no justice prevailed in this Buddhist country against a notorious moron in the guise of a pious monk.
hb Friday, 15 June 2018 02:28 PM
Lets all pray and hope the high court gives the verdict extending his stay in the state sponsored lodge.
Rasheed Friday, 15 June 2018 02:44 PM
Do you think so?, wait and see, some or rather he will walk free very soon.
M. Justin Appuhamy Friday, 15 June 2018 02:57 PM
Definitely all should pray earnestly that this man should not be released at any cost.
Prem Friday, 15 June 2018 02:32 PM
This person absolute disgrace to the great Buddhist philosophy, must given capital punishment. Shamefully still some people supporting him.
Ceylon Friday, 15 June 2018 03:23 PM
Only criminals are supporting him.
De Silva Friday, 15 June 2018 02:35 PM
Nuisance to the entire country. Should be derobed
EMPEROR;S NEW CLOTHES Friday, 15 June 2018 03:26 PM
And forced to wear the Emperor;s new clothes
Warren Raed Friday, 15 June 2018 03:20 PM
It's a shame that lawyers who study to protect the law of a land ensure justice work harder to release a criminal. What kind of moral values and ethics do you lawyer's follow?
Jayamini Perera Friday, 15 June 2018 05:52 PM
Money talks in this land of Paradise.
A. K. Adwani Sunday, 17 June 2018 07:36 AM
In that case Sugundhika is totally right
COUNSELS Friday, 15 June 2018 03:32 PM
Either the counsels are serving the VENERABLE free of charge - OR - pray - . who is the well wisher behind the scenes meeting the hefty cost of lawyer's fees
Citizen Perera Friday, 15 June 2018 03:50 PM
What is the function of Ministry of Buddhist affairs?Why our Mahanaykas do not take necessary action to control these unruly monks? Being a buddhist I am really disappointed about behavior of these monks.
Jesus Sunday, 17 June 2018 12:41 PM
Buddisam it itself is a mythical disgrace so what are you talking about LolCatholic power
Anthony Friday, 15 June 2018 03:57 PM
His a disgrace to Buddhism remove his robes and life sentence the guy, thanks to Gotayaba for encouraging such people.
Bamunu Friday, 15 June 2018 04:04 PM
It is pitty to see that people call Sinhalese join hands with Hamba people to attack their own buddhist monk weather he is right or wrong. No other religious people do this. Ape hamuduruwane Sinhalayo kiyanne megollantaya.
hb Friday, 15 June 2018 04:58 PM
people like you are the ones that tarnish the image of the great religion, by protecting thugs just because they wear the yellow robe.
gamini Friday, 15 June 2018 05:08 PM
on what grounds do these counsel want him acquitted and released
Sun Friday, 15 June 2018 05:41 PM
Criminal is a criminal. What's all this fuss after verdict given.
Niran Friday, 15 June 2018 05:51 PM
Do the crime... do the time. No special privileges!
Mason Friday, 15 June 2018 08:26 PM
He is a deplorable character spewing hatred among communities, and a disgrace to monks and Buddhism. It is best he stays inside never to be released.
Roshan Friday, 15 June 2018 09:44 PM
Please screen a new movie!!!We are fed up of the same old movies!!!!

I do not approve this bhanthe’s actions but he is the only one who talk about the mainstream buddhists. He bit compulsive but his intentions best regarded for our country. Everyone giving into the international pressure. Mainly the GTF. Bhanthe Gghnasara did not meant bad for Muslim’s, he only was against the ones who distroy our country for the GSP. Real criminals roaming around. This bhanthe is bit emotional but he really doesn’t hate anyone. There are so many against him. Truth will come out. Everyone scared to speak for their nation but bhanthe did not. He will have strength to go through this tough time. We are with you Hamuduruwane. Eknaligoda family betrayed Sinhalese and gang up with Sudda to betray the Sinhala nation. People who comment on bhanthe here do not know our history we had a darkest histrory under the English, They are so humanistic now their history very dark, unfortunate thing is our younger generation donor know our history,

Gnanasara did not work for Buddhism and it’s people, instead he brought disgrace to the Bhudist word.Justice has been done at last for his ‘performance’.
Martin Milton Sunday, 17 June 2018 06:23 PM
What on earth are the Malwatte and Asgiriya Mahanayakes doing while this Buddhist monk is being terrorised by Government authorities? True, he may have done something wrong BUT this punishment does NOT suit and is perverse in the extreme for such a trivial incident. What terribly poor judgment in the extreme! Let us hope sensibility prevails in the Appeal Court for Heavens' sake. MM

Should be hanged for Aluthgama
