    Freedom of speech is now dead in Sri Lanka

    She must be a puppet of Sumanthiran, Pakkalisothi saravanan, Sampanthan, Eran Wickremaratna, Ravi Karunanayagam etc.

    this arrest wrong. people have right to criticize anyone including any priest regardless of their religion. They can be Hindu of Buddhist or Muslims or Christians or Catholics. In France, one Muslim terrorist killed a teacher because the teacher made some comments about Muslim religion. If people really believe in God, why do they need to resort violence?

    Another Colombo Liberal

    So, I'm guessing she is neither Buddhist nor Christian, but wants to stir up trouble between both groups. WHY; what is the agenda?

    G. Gunapala Monday, 19 October 2020 09:38 AM

    This type of nasty trouble makers should be severely punished

    Derry Mayor Monday, 19 October 2020 09:52 AM

    Cardinal should report this to Hon. President and take appropriate action against the women immediately.

    Themis Silva Monday, 19 October 2020 09:53 AM

    Very serious, she should be kept behind bars.

    Leelaratne Monday, 19 October 2020 12:56 PM

    She has no knowledge of any religion. She is a paid puppet of an NGO trying to destroy Buddhism. Please do not let her give lectures to Daham Pasal students.

    Ammagei Puthek Tuesday, 20 October 2020 11:53 PM

    Kapila Senaratne Wednesday, 21 October 2020 10:30 PM

    No lawyer practices our constitutional rights any more. Article 6 “ Freedom of speech and publish “

    Fred de Silva Thursday, 22 October 2020 06:58 AM

    Freedom of speech has limits, does not mean you can say what you want.There has to be accountability for those thousands whose lives have been destroyed forever. Not to mention the image of the country, dragged in the mud. Need justice Focus on that, not the Cardinal
