    I hate the LTTE, but the reason for hunger strike is justified. We should release or charge them.

    It is against the human rights to keep persons for longer than 6 months in prison without the trial begins.

    I am just mad when people go on hunger strike. We are all always hungry. Why not go on strike until death.

    Tiger leadership is not in Sri Lanka but in Europe and Canada,so release these poor ex- foot soldiers from the prison and hunt down the terror chiefs living and planing from abroad.

    these guys should be released without any further delay. you can't hold them in prison forever. if necessary, lock up all bikkus as they are fanatics and trouble makers. there cannot be peace until these savages are wiped out from the face of the earth.
